We consider it extremely unfortunate that the p.sent onerous restriotions ppon the - mhiements of cotton were not greatly modi del. The weighheavilyupon theplanter and a the msaerant, aid are, we think, equally in e jurious to the govereent.

We have ohly to accept a the f&etsrsa they are,, and to endeavor to work t'taid6t resent regulations in such a man Sseras to diminish the hardships which they apose, as far as we possibly can. Each merchant and planter will, of course, t decidafor himself the readiest means of mov t lpgtie cotton which is seeking a market. rom what we learn, the diffioulties surround i~s the question, amount, in some localities, to a'iiegpdroi emiargo upon the movement of the staple.

The Constitution d aeclres that "Starte" shall ie ostileet f io many repesentatives, accord ia.ig theio total.opulationh. It does nlot any that States shall be entitled to so many reproe sentatives bcording to the number of their voters. Buti in or4ed to i nflenee seeional rage, ar.d to exiite atidonal sagbition, the Tribune and its ao4sborers assume that, in theory only vdters are represented in Congress, and not the States, or ,ha people of the Sqates; and hence, that a voter ae the South has more poler anrd tdaflience than avoir in the io th. Th iibysehas the audacity to declare thast the coagressionalsmendinept provides for an I apnotionment based on voting population, whieh,'so far from being true is diectly the re'feal9of the tainut. The- Sieridmen t distinctly depleres that epfesentation shall be based ontotal popu lation; but it couples this principle with an ezpeqient by which the Southern States are to be cajbled or coerced into granting the right of snltage to negioes. That it to say, I as long as negroes ere not permitted to vote I repftentation is:to be dimihished in the pro portion which the eroluded class bears to the I whole popoulation: Propositions to base a representation on the number of qualified s electorswere introduced,.but were rejected. 'Twas seen that a rule of this kind would lead to perplezing Isctuations in the relative rep resentation of the Stateas,and to such compe tition among them for congressional in fluence as would lead to results which, at present, appear hblsrd. It was feared, too, that if the alternative were sffered to the South, lher people, might prefer to maintain this equality in.Congress rather by extending white suffrage, than by coneeding~blaok suf frage-rather by including women, and males befteen eighteen and twenty-one in the voting class thai by allowing negroes to vote. The expedient of electoral representation was dist missed ; and its diiniissal shows that the red-) ieals. themselves have not fixed upon any sacramental standard as a test of suffrage. Stey are afraid of thelogical consequence of e equality of natural rights, as applied to the North, and they restrict the doctrine to the equality of rights as between white males and black males. They refuse to admit an invariable test in the North; but they insist that an invariable test shall be recognized in the South--and that, not a natural test, but a purely artificial test. It is, theretore, per fectly plain that at the bottom of this device there is no principle at all ; no reql regard for liberty and progress ; but simply a determina tionto force on one section of the country an arbitrary rule, for the benefit of a dominant and ambitions party. But the insincerity of the argument used by the radicals to recommend the amendment to Northern favor is conspicuously exposed by a consideration of the whole of their policy. Now they declare it to be a gross in. justice that a member of Congress should be chosen in the South by, say 12,000 voters, when a member is chosen in the North by, say 24,000 voters. They propose to remedy this injustice in one of two ways-by forcing us to let negroes vote, or by depriving the ,negroes of representation. But in any event, they declare their purpose to disfranchise the white people of the South. Thus the result of their whole policy would be to convert a votipg constituency of 12,000 whites into a voting constituency of 12,000 blacks; and in thisl onversion they perceive no injustice towards either the Northern people, or the disfranchised Southern whites. as- O.pea.n of the arletetsi Theater. of, - t At an early hour last evening the streets, bat alleyways and other places of popular resort es- in the neighborhood of the Varieties, were con crowded with an expeetant thrqng, the usual th swarm of pretty women who grace the enter bs tainments of this theater began to ascend the leir staircase, and the general appearance of the an- building decidedly recalled the entertainments snt of the. past seeson. The rising of the curtain, he after a skillful prelude of the orchestra, uIn nder Carlo Patti, completed the charm mn of associations, and. the serious business, or entertainment of the evening, nowbegan. It ss was the representation of that most epigra mhtic of English plays, the "School for Scan dal," in which every line almost is a witticism, he and in which, the glitter, and ornament, and st sparkle are so plentiful as to become almost at wearisome. It is a play which tests the knowledge of polite society on the part of an astor hieh requires careful costume and studied manners; and, in which any ignorance r of the proprieties would be fatal to the suc r cess of the play.' In each of these requisites a the company fulfiled the expectations of the re ihblie. IMri. Floyd as .Charl Surface, was a lively, y rattling dashing yong man about'town, rep m reseitiog the Irish rather than the English . prgi .. df lpast generation3 but always sus Staeint th~ role of the hero of the play, anid sarrymg the audience along with him, Mr. Jas. Cardeneas thehypocritical brother Joseph rt Surface; was an able 8et-off, and we do not remember a courteaus polished drawing-room villain, whose manners pleased us more. So far as we had an opportunity of judging we weremnqualifiedlypleasedwith hisappearance. Mr. Iiadcliffe as ,Mfoses displayed a very ef fective get-up, and Mr. Pearson as Sir Oliver attracted by his biusque, hearty and earnest i style, as much attention as any of the de a butants. We heard Mr. Bradly complimented d by good critics as Sir Peter Teazle, and Mrs. n Taylor gives evidence of being an actress of 3t much talent. We shall not .stop at this 'lath hou3 'to speak of such well' known favorites as MIrs. Chanfrau, Messrs. Fiske, Davenport and-Parsloe, each of whom was loudly applauded on their first appearance. To conclude what we have'to say, the decora ce tions, carpeting, etc., for which, we believe, Mr. St. Germaine deserves the credit, added much to the appearance of the building, and the general character of the opening perform ance was such as to ill us with lively anti cipations for the future of Mr. Floyd's new e company.

The World says that Miss Manning, the author of "Mary Powell," is the only female writer over forty, whose age can be ascertained. She was confessedly born in 1812. The World has forgotten " Miss Martineau and Mrs. Somerville. The names of these ladies, now advanced in life, will a r be remembered forever as ornaments of literature and science. To the first we are indebted for an a excellent translation of that remarkable work Comte's Positive Philosophy, and to the second for,one of the most complete, and, at tihe same time, most readable books on physical science, o that has ever been written.
