We clip the following from the Washing
ton Chronicle, of the 12th inst:
" The New York - Herald is not gd at
guessing the way the wind blows at a future
iayTbut when it does blow, that journal is
not slow in finding out its ""J J"

the Copperjolmson party but it at length

against Gen. Geary in Pennsylvania ; and it

Maine helped to sweii iu great, iwpuuuu.ii
rl ; that State. Tlie Herald is becom
ing sagacious; and it will discover before long
h?f ho Trisb vote will do the business for
some people nearer home."
The Herald, of the 12th hurt., comes out in
plainer terms, giving up all hopes of carry
ing the Northern States for the conservatives.
It says :
" Whatever mav have been the real causes.
however, operating to bring about the extra
ordinary results ot tins .Blaine election, il ia
too decisive against the democracy and con
wryiti to be limited to Maine. We ap
prehend that, as in all our political contests
of the past of a national character, the result
in Maine indicates the general drift of the
olpctions coming after it throughout the
Northern States. The prospect now of a con
servative majority , in the next Congress is
verv doubtful : the rorbsuect of another racli
cal Congress is better than it has appeared at
any time since December last. In short tins
Maine election of 1866 will probably mark
another new chapter in our political history
and perhaps another reorganization oi panics
and another reconstruction of party platforms
for the Presidential election, beginning witn
the close of the coming elections of October
We further clip from another article, in
the same paper, " a word of advice" to its
Southern friends. The Herald should have
talked this way all the while, and not have
nandered to the secession sentiment which
now predominates in the Southern States,and
has gathered strength and encouragement
from the North. Although the Herald meant
this article for the secession papers and "their
readers, there is no hope of its being circu
lated in such mediums, therefore we copy
it for their special benefit.
" But we have a word to say specially to
the old rebels of the South a word of cau
tion and warning that may do them good if
they will heed it. Should rresicient joun
son's humane policy to restore the South be
defeated by the radicals, these men may
blame themselves for it in a great measure.
At New Orleans and Memphis they behaved
in a manner to nrovoke bitter feeling in the
North, and vindictive spirit of a portion of
the Southern press arouses indignant opposi
tion here. We are aware that the best and
most sensible people of that section, and par
ticularly such men aB Generals Lee and Joe
Johnston, Alexander Stephens and Gov. Orr,
have no sympathy with these mischievous
agitators ; bnt the whole South is held re
sponsible for such conduct. The bad and vio
lent rebels play into the hands of the radi
cals and paralyze the efforts of the conserva
tives to bring restoration and peace to the
Southern States. We have warned them
from time to time of the consequences,
and we tell them now that unless they
pursue a different course the sentiment
of the North- will be aroused against
thcin. The passions of the war are not yet
cooled down, and they ought to remember
that they are a conquered people and at the
mercy of their conquerors. Resistance to
the authority of the government or even to '
the will of the people of the North would be j
madness and utterly ruinous, as they must
know. They could" gain nothing by that,
and might lose alL Radical emissaries and
enemies will provoke them to violent acts if
possible, as was the case at New Orleans;
but that cannot excuse their own bad con
duct. Their brutality at New Orleans is
having a serious effect at the North. The
only part left for them to play in these times
is to submit and wait patiently. They have
na voice in the question of restoration ; that
is left to the North. The President, with
the conservative masses of the North, desires
to treat them in a humane and magnanimous
spirit, as well as to restore them to their for
mer political status ; but this will be una
vailing as long as they show a rebellious or
vindictive disposition. Their fate and the
future of their magnificent country hang in a
nice and uncertain balance which their own
good or bad conduct may turn one way or

Durability of the Atlantic Cables.
Raleigh, Sept 10, 1S66.
You ask if there is any natural cause to
interrupt the working of the Atlantic Cables ?
I answer that 1 am aware ot out one that
appears imminent, and that danger can only
be removed bv time, and the fact, that it
seems for some unknown cause not to be ap
prehended, because it is not, or has not been
iniured. Ice-beras float in the waters of
the ocean with four-filths of their bulk un
der water and one-fifth above. They are
known frequently to have embedded in
them in large masses, rock and small stones
with sharp cutting edges more or less hard,
until the edges are worn smooth by friction
with the bottom of the ocean, its sands,
shells and stone. Suppose a large Iceberg
swims down from the north in the spring,
borne on currents and swayed by the winds,
and comes in contact with the shoaly bottom
of the Newfoundland banks. Becoming sta
tionary at the deepest and heaviest part, it
is rocked by the currents, and tides of the
sea and winds, and it exerts, of course, power
sufficient, by plowing into the sands of the
bottom, to make deep furrows ; and if it
should happen to come in contact with either
of the cables, they would part as easily as
pipe-stems. The chief security to the cables
appears to my judgment to be, (which time
can alone determine in that they remain un
injured.) are their utter insignificance at the
bottom of the ocean, amid countless larger
objects, and its chief protection will be, that
they may escape certain destruction for a
few years from this insignificance.

Gen. Grant at Cincinnati.
CrscisNATr, Sept. 12. Gen. Grant visited
Wood's theatre last night, where he was en
thusiastically received. During the perfor
mance a crowd, among whom were many sol
diers, paraded before the theatre, and Mr.
Eggleston, member of Congress, requested
tlie manager to go and inform Gen. Grant
that the crowd wished to see him. Grant
replied, I cannot and will not see them
please tell the commander of the soldiers to
come and see me." Baker, the commander,
with some others, marched iuto the theatre
to a private box. General Grant, without
giving him time to make his wishes known,
approached Baker, and said : " Sir, I am no
politician. The President is my commander
in chief ; I consider this demonstration in
opposition to the President of the United
States, Andrew Johnson. -You will take
your men away ; I am greatly annoyed at
this demonstration. I will be glad to see
you to-morrow, when the President arrives."
The crowd finally dispersed, cheering Grant
as the next President of the United States.
Movements of the Delegates of the Lioyal
Trenton, Sept. 10. Governors Brown
low of Tennessee, Hamilton of Texas, and
four or five other delegates from the South

evening and were received by a considerable
parade of the members of the Legislature
and citizens. A large number of carriages
and a band of music were in the procession.
The Loyal League rooms were handsomely
decorated, and flags were displayed from
several private residences. A large meeting
was held in front of the League rooms, which
was addressed by Governor Urownlow and
others of the delegation.
The Rebel Bonds.
The London Daily News of August 31, in
its city article, says : " The Confederate
bonds, which of late have been altogether
neglected, were in demand on that day at an
advance. They opened at and closed at
41 and 5-1 2 tb. It is surmised that accounts
may have arrived favorable to the Philadel
phia Convention, and the consequent return
of the Southern States to Congress. It is
difficult, however, to see how the prospects
of the bondholders can thereby be improved,
since the absolute condition has been made
and agreed to that the war debt of the South
shall be totally repudiated."
