I, sir, would faior an alliance with France
as a means of more effectually punishing

Tho journals the other day gave nn ac
count of an Informal meeting of politicians
held at the capital for the purpose of forming,
as it was reported, a " great national conser
vative Union party." In itself it was noth
ing, unless ridiculous, becauso great parties
aro not made, save in the way that tho tower
of llabel was built, to come to confusion in
tho end. Oreat parties only grow; they
grow out of tho actual traditions and cir
cumstances of a nation; and they can no
more be made on purpose than you can make
the weather. When tho occasion comes for
expressing themselves, tho people will In
stinctively divide into parties, according to
their several tendencies, and tho combina
tions of mcro politicians will fall into naught.
Yet some interest is attached to the meeting
in question, becauso it professed to act in
support of the views of tho President; and
wo know more distinctly than ever what
those views are. We should hardly call them
conservative, in tho ordinary sense of tho
word; on the contrary, they seem to us to ho
very radical; they certainly go to the root
of the matter, in many respects, Mr. John
son is no new man his convictions aro not
picked up for tho occasion; he lias for tears
acted upon them, and they embrace nearly
every point of theoretical doctrine, as well as
of practical policy. On every question of
prominence he has shown that he beliet es hi
the equal rights of the masses, of wluto men
as w ell as of black men ; In local self-got em
inent as tho only means of protecting those
rights, and in a restricted central govern
ment as the only means of assuring such
local got eminent Like Jefferson, like Jack
son, liko llenton, hko Wright, and other il
lustrious statesmen of the past, he holds that
the one end of all government is to establish
impartial justice, and that all exercise of
power beyond that Is usurpation and wrong
New parties will unquestionably spring out
of the agltutions of the existing tune. As the
republic has been cast by tho events of a
stupendous war into new und untried circum
stances, tho combinations of opinion will be
modified accordmg to tho altered character
of things. Hut we bclicto with tho Prcsi
dent that the sound, moderate, far-seeing uud
generuus principles which he laid down in his
message uiiiat become the nucleus uf uny
party that shall be able to lay claim to ttie

present the tendency at Washington Albany,
New York, evtrywhcie. Is to an exiess, uud
