WILLIAM H. SEWARD,
Secretary of State,
Tli Freelileul'n Menage.
The first annual message of President John
son to the Congress of the United States must
command the respect of intelligent people
everywhere, and exert a profound Influence
upon the lovers of constitutional equality and
iustlce Ln his own country. Never did man
ftve to deal with matters of more moment
ous magnitude, and It must be conceded that
he.brlti.TS to the solution of the grave prob
lems before him a devotion to the Constitu
tion, a lotrtcal conseoutlveness, and a fervor
of patriotism equal to the great emergency.
Anere is mucn in me message, oi course,
wbloh erates harsh! v upon the ears of South
ern people, but having now to deal only with
xbe practical views oi me question irom toe
stand point of the Union, the reasons of the
course which the President has pursued are
such as to commend themselves to the law
abiding people of these States, and as suoh
must command their hearty concurrence and
support. It is now evident that If the Pres
ident Is to be thwarted In his great and pa
triotic design of restoring peace and har
mony to a distracted country, It will not be
by the action of these people or their repre
sentatives, hut, as the signs of the times
would Indicate by the disunion cabal in
stalled at Washington
Let us hope, that the earnest and able ap
pent made by the Chief Magistrate of the
nation wil) meet a responsive chord In the
breasts of the Northern people, which will
resound through the halls of t'ongress, ana
bring members to a re all ling sense of the pub
llo danger, and nerve them to a proper dis
charge of their duties to the people of nil
sections Montgomery (Ala ) Advertistr.
Am old cltUen of New Orleans, recently
from Matamores, reports apprehensions
among the French officers that there will be
a sudden crossing of United States troops by
pontoons over the Rio Grande, and a war
