The Political Situation.
The election for members of Con
grossand ttati' officers takes place to-day
in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and sev
eral other Northern States. If, in these
elections, the friend: of President John
son's policy do not ain enough mem
bers of Congress to prevent what is
called the Kadieal party from liavinur
two-thirds in the next Congress and
over-riding: the President's vetoes, Ave
may expect trouble in the country, and
probably anarchy and war, unless the
difficulty can be averted by the South
ern States accepting what is known as
the Howard amendment, and thus get
ting their Representatives and Senators
in their seats. After the result of these
elections are known, the Southern peo
ple can decide as to the course they
ought to pursue.
Parties at the North are divided into
three classes. 1st, the friends of Presi
dent Johnson's policy, which is to ad
mit into Congress immediately South
ern representatives who can take the
test oath. 2d, the moderate Republi
cans who contend that the South shall
adopt the proposed Howard amend
ment to the Constitution oi the United
States before her Representatives are
admitted. 3d, the Radicals, headed by
such men as Thaddeus Stevens, who fa
vor abolishing the present Southern
State Governments, putting us back
under Provisional Governors, and com
pelling us to re-organize and per
mit. the negroes to vote, and also
to pay the whole expense of the late
war or have all our property confis
cated. At the last session of Congress a law
was passed providing that as soon as
any of the Southern States adopt the
Howard amendment, they shall be enti
tled to representation in Congress. The
provisions of this amendment areas fol
1. That all persons born or natural
ized iu the Uuited States are citizens j
thereof and of the States iu which they
reside, and on a tooting of equality in
regard to their civil rights.
2. That the. enumeration of the peo
ple for representation iu Congress shall
be abridged in proportion to the abridge
ment of the right of suffrage in any
State on account of race or color. The
question as to whether the negro shall
vote is left with each State, but if the
negro is not allowed to vote, the repre
sentation in Congress for sueli State
shall be based on white population or

The following important dispatch i i from
the Washington Correspondent of the Balti
more Sun :
WAsnixoTOX, Sept. 30. All statements to
the effect that the President has announced
his determination to reconmund tlit adop
tion of the amendments to the constitution
proposed by Congress are utterly unfounded.
He has not said to any one he was in favor
of those amendments. It is true, neverthe
less, that the President has had under con
sideration some of the political points to be
embraced in his next annual message to Con
gress, and some of these points have been
submitted to his Cabinet. There is good rea
son for saying that Mr. Johnson will adhere
strictly to the policy that has characterized
Lis administ ration. Among other things ha
will urge the constitution lerrVcsit an open
question for the courts whether ordinary leg
islation is or is not binding while States are
refused representation, and that instrument is
-distinct and emphatic in its requirement that
in the preparation of the amendments to the
constitution, all the States that claim and
are willing to exercise the right shall be rep
resented. The President will insist on the immediate
admission of loyal and legally qualified rep
resentatives from all the uon represented
States, in order that Congress may be ena
bled to prepare such amendments as the con
dition of the country demand. He will like
wise recommend that where Congress is iu ac
cordance with this view of the requirements
of the constitution, amendments may be pre
pared adapting the questions of icyreseiita
liou and taxation to meet the ehangej con-
dition oT the 'country '1' It is also understood
that the President will embody in his mes
sage, as a suggestion to congress, the two prop

Letter from Dr. J. T. Leach.
FeUoir-Citizcns of Johnston County:
Will you permit one who has enjoyed your
confidence in the past to speak a few words
of soberness and truth for our common good
and the good of posterity ?
Though we are permitted by the authority
of the government of the United Stales to
enjoy in part the civil rights guaranteed to
us", our political rights are withheld ; we
have no voice in the administration ot" the
federal government, wc are taxed without
being represented. But these things are
done in accordance witn our own actions, for
we have refused to conform to the terms laid
down by the Legislative branch ot the fed
The Senate and House of Representatives
are the sole judges of the qualifications of
their members, and until we conform to the
laws and terms offered us by Congress our
condition will not be bettered. From bad it
will rapidly become worse, until like the
wayward children of Israel we shall groan
under an Egyptian bondage. This is no
sketch of the fancy, my fellow-citizens. It
is a plain statement of facts, which appeals
to the reason of all, that unless we submit to
the requirements of the law-making power,
even those civil rights which we now enjoy
will be taken from us and a military despo
tism be established over us. Furttier resis
tance or even talk of resistance to the author
ity and requirements, oft!,"' .fet feral govern
ment is mail folly, the bitle? 'fruits of which
we shall soon t aste.
"We hear men talking about their rights.
I appeal to them to know where, how, when
and by what authority they enjoy the rights
which they are now permitted to exercise.
They seem to forget that those ritrbts were for
feited by a participation in the rebellion. AV'e
denied the true faith and repudiated the au
thority of the federal government. When
Gen. Johnston surrendered, we siood as cul
prits at the mercy of ilie government, with
out the shadow of a right as loyal citizens.
We had uot only forfeited such rights, politi
cal and civil, but even our lives. We were
in the hands and at the mercy of the victors.
Fellow-citizens, we must go back to our
father's house! Like the prodigal, who spent
I. is patrimony in riotous living, we have fed
too long upon the husks. Let us confess our
sins and forsake them, and we will be receiv
ed with open arms and glad smiles.
The terms proposed by Congress, known
as the Howard amendment, would have been
regarded as a god-send by those now most
clamorous for their rights, eighteen months
ago. It makes all persons born or naturali-
ze, n the United States, subject to the laws
thereof, citizens of the Unite. 1 States and of
vote- tlle.v are counted in the ratio ot repre-
mentation; it not. they are not counted.
right oi suffrage is lelt with the States.
It excludes from otliee all who have hereto- j
fore held ofnee under any State or the United j
States, taking the oath to support the Consti
tution, and who afterwards engage I in the ;
rebellion. Rut leaves it dWcrelionarv with ;
Congress to remove such disability by a two- !
thirds vote. ;

I assume the payment of the Confederate debt,
; and declares it unconstitutional for the gov
eminent to pay any claim for loss sustained

! This, fellow -citizens, is the door opined to j
us. Though it may prove a bitter dose to i
some, let us not toryet that we have sinned ,
with a high hand and outstretched arm j
against the best government ever known to j
man. The reine.iy is mild, compared with i
the enormity of tile crime which we have 1
The most important inquiry is, how are we j
to manifest our willingness to accept the pro- j
posed terms. The answer is, elect honest and j
patriotic men to the General Assenmly and i
elect a Union Governor. If the next Legisla- j
tare will adopt the amendment by a bare ma-
ioritv, Congress will admit us acrum to k-llow-

people should suffer the horrors of a military
If this amendment be not adopted, none
of us need be surprised should the next Con
gress revoke evcrv Presidential pardon, con
fiscate property and force universal suffrage
upon us. Let us be wise in time and avert

Sketch of Rev. Dr. Hawks.
The New York Tribune presents the fol
lowing sketch of that eminent Minister of
the Protestant Episcopal Church, Rev. Dr.
Hawks, who died on Thursday last, in the
city of New York, of the disease known as
Blight's disease of the kidneys, in the sixty
ninth year of his age. This sketch will be
read with interest by his many friends and
Francis Liester Hawks was born in New -hern,
N. C, June 10, 1793. He graduated
from the University of North-Carolina in the
year 1S15. He then studied law, and in 1819,
at the age of twenty-one, he was admitted to
the bar. For several years lie practiced law
iu North-Carolina. At the age of twent-t hree,
he was elected to the Legislature of North
Carolina. He soon after began a regular
course of study in theology, he having deter
mined to enter the ministry ot the Protestant j
Episcopal Church. In 1820, he was ordained j
in that Church by Bishop Ravenscroft of j
North-Carolina. For a brief period he olli- !
cated in New Haven Conn., as assistant to !
The Rev. Dr. Harry Croswell. j
In 1S20. he was appointed assistant minis- !
ter at St. James" Church. Philadelphia, Bish- ;
op White being then rector. He became rec- j
tor of St. Stephen's Church, in this city,
early in 1S:J1, but resigned the office at the J
close of the year. He was next called to St. 1
Tj!oinas"s Church, in this city, continuing
rector of tint cirureh till 184:1." In 1S:J"5. at,
the General Convention, he was appointed to ;
the Missionary Bishopric of the South -West ; !
but he declined the appointment. As histo- I
rian for the American Episcopal Church he
visited England, and obtained many valu i-
ble papers concerning the rise and progress
of Episcopacy in this country. In 1S37. in
conjunction with Dr. Henry, he founded the j
New York I&.ciew, of which, for, a while, he ;
continued editor. About this time he foun- !
led St. Thomas's Hall, at Flushing, Long I
Island a school ; intended for the special !
benefit of the sons of the c lergy, but it was :
closed in a few years, leaving him deeply in i
debt. He removed to .Mississippi in It 13,
and was elected bish:p of the diocese the
same year. In the following year this elec
tion came before the house of clerical and
lay deputies, in general convention. Strong
opposition was made to Dr. Hawks, and the j
matter was finally referred back to the dio- !
cese of Mississippi. The diocese expressed
the utmost confidence in Dr. Hawks, but he ;
refused to accept the bishopric. He became j
rector of Christ Church, in New Orleans, in !
18-14. He remained rector of this church for 1
five years, during which time he was elected j
President of the University of Louisiana.
He returned to New York in 1810. becoming
rector of the Church of the Mediator, soon j
after merged in Calvary Church. He was
elected Bishop of Rhode" Island in 1S 2, but
declined the office. In 1861. ho resigned the j
rectorship of Calvary Church, and accepted
the charge of a parish in Baltimore. He
finally returned to -New York and resumed
his ministry in the University Chapel, Wash
ington Square. Within a few weeks work
was commenced on a new church for him, in
Twenty-ii flh street, near Madison avenue.
During the late war, Dr. Hawks sympath
ised strongly with the South, but of his poli
tical principles it is unnecessary now to
speak. He was a man of remarkable eloqu
ence. The writer well recollects hearing him
preach a charity sermon, over thirty years
ago, in St. George's Chapel, in Beekman
street, in which he described a snow storm
and the sufferings of the unhoused poor so
vividly that there was probably not a dry
eye in the congregation.
Dr. Hawks made many and valuable con
tributions to literature and science. The
following are among the more important of
his works : "Reports of Cases Adjudged in
the Supreme Court of North Carolina, 1820
20." (4 vols., 8vo., Raleigh. 1323-8 ;) "Digest
of all the Cases Decided and Reported in
North Carolina ;" " Contribution to the
Ecclesiastical History of the United States,"
(2 vols., 8vo., embracing Va. ami Md. N. Y.,
1830-41;) "Egypt and Its Monuments,"
8vo., 1849 ;) " Auricular Confession in the
Protestant Episcopal Church," (12mo., 1840.)
Dr. Haws has translated Rovcra andJTschu
di's " Antiquities of Peru," (1834,) and has
edited the " Official and other State Papers
of the late Major-General Alexander Hamil
ton," (12mo., 1842,) and various other liter
The funeral of this eminent divine took
place in New York on Saturday last, at Cal

years the pastor. The Express of Saturday
"At half past two o'clock the remains, fol
lows 1 by a larafe procession, were brought
to Calvary Church, where they were received
by Bishop Potter, Bishop Quintard, Bishop
Lay, Bishop Talbot, and some of the leading
ministers of the city, at the porch. Bishop
Potter subsequently recited initiatory senten
ces of the Burial service, while the body was
carried up the central aisle, escorted by the
pall-bearers. When the remains were brougt
at the foot of the marble font, at which Dr.
Hawks administered the right of Baptism
for many j-ears, the services were com
menced by the Rev. Dr. Washburne, who
read the opening collects of the service, after
which the Rev. Dr. Tuttle announced the C2d
" When I survey the - wonderous cross
gjgjgOn which the Prince of glory died,"
which was sung by all the congregation.
The officiating clergy here proceeded to the
transept where the remains lay, and Bishop
Potter read the committal service. . At four

funeral cortege, were conveyed to Greenwood
