THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 18GG.
TIIE NEW YORK PRESS. Editorial Opinions of the Leading Journals Upon the Most Import- ant Topics of the Hour. OOWPILID HVEllY DAY FOR EVENIWO TKLKGRAPH. The War tor tlie Union and the War Against It. From Vie Time. Mr. Thaddcim Stevens and Ills radical friends are uot unlikely to overshoot tbeir mark. Their fiery zeal will In due time defeat Itself, and bring upon tbelr own Lends tlio punlohment with which they threaton ethers. For all this nota tion in Congress, this piling up of amendments to the Constitution, this denunciation of every nian vho diilers from them, this anxiety to dis able and jmniiih our fellow-citizens in the Southern States, is in Hfrnngo forgetfulness of considerations which the statesman who would live mwt ever keep in view. It presupposes the continuance during peace of a public opinion which acquired force uuder the excitcmpnt and perils of war. It makes no allowance for the abatement of leclinga which derived their strcneth . from a conflict involving the life of the 11 u ion, aud which are naturally modified, it not eradicated, now that danger has given place to triumph. And it mnorcB the fact that iniitiy of the measures urged by radical'sm, and which the radi cal leaders would lain push to completion be tween the rising and the setting of the sun, can not acquiie nny gimrantee of permanence, and may be annulled without ceremony by another CongrcP3, liven with regard to constitutional amendments, it takes for granted the concur rence of the requisite, number of States; although the known weakness of the radical element in (several of them renders such a result extremely improbable. There is folly, there lore, as well as mischief, in eome of the scenes now beiDg exacted at Washington. The idea of stibiugating the Southern States and reducing them to the condition of conquered provinces obtained no favor during the period most likely , to fostrr It. True, the Wendell l'hiliipseti on the platlonn enacted tbe same role of characters notf placed by the Stevensos of another place, but the pieat body of the people repudiated U unqualifiedly ami always. The Copperheads, taking their cuo from the Phillips school of, radicals, opposed the war under the allegation that it was awurof conquest. Hut tbe people, from whom men and means to carry on the war weru derived, never regarded it o other thau a struggle to preserve the national intcerity. All their plans, all their aim, were tredicaicd upon the contiuued existence of the fnioa in itb entirely, and consequenU.v upon the continuance within the Union of the Rebfl States, throughout the whole term of the Rebel lion. The entire policv of tbe Government, foreien and domestic, proceeded on this hypothesis. The proclainaiioi s ot President Lincoln, the cor re?poudence of the State Department, the legis lation of Congress, the efforts and aspirations of the Northern people all were in harmony upon this point. It was this and only this wftich jus tified the war. It was this and this only which sus tained the North under reverse, animated it when things wore their gloomiest aspect, and gave unceasing vigor to the spirit which led to victory. The States were held to be States all the time. And tbe close of the war was held t3 imply the resumption of former relations o be tween tbe Federal Government aud the several States which had been concerned in tbe Rebellion. This proper appreciation ot the question is of more value, lor most practical purposes, than ihe abstract arguments of publicists on either fide. As the subtleties of the secession problem have been blown into nothingness from the can non'.! mouth, bo the theorizing of Messrs. Ste vens and shellabarcer is blotted out as of no ac count by tbe deliberate judgment of the people We have the testimony of General Grant to the good faith with which the citizens of the South ncquicsce in the verdict of the war, and resume their allegiance to the old Hag. The terms dic tated by General Grant, with the full knowledge of President Lincoln, were calculated to briug about this happy condition of ali'airs. The great soldier who guided the struggle to its end dreamed not of arrogating to himself the functions ot conqueror, or oi imposing upon the South terms of vassalage They who did the tighting felt always that' they were fighting, not to extend a conqueror's flag over alien territory, not to add provinces to a republic and make us glorious symbol ,-a Haunting lie," but to put down Rebels and restore the authority of the Union over all its component parts. The armies of the Union foucht only lor thai. And when that was accomplished, soldiers and peoolo alike felt that the workol the war was ended, and that nothing remained to keep the Northern and Southern States apart. The Union was re stored, and with the restored Union came back the equal.ty of the States and the lull title of each o the privileges conferred by the Coi eutution. The Northern people have gone yet further. From tlie moment when the Rebellion, was known to be suppressed, they have striken to heal the wounds occasioned by the war, and to reaspure the South in every respect. They have established lines ol steam communication almost without number. They have provided the means of reconstructing' railroads. They have luruished capital to cultivate plantations and to promote industrial nnd commercial enterprises in every Southern State. They have settled liberally with Southern debtors, and have sent on credit goods to supply the Southern market. In this manner the question of the Union and the relations of Northcra Stat3s to Southern States have been virtually and satisfactorily settled by the peoples ot the two section-'. Southern people come hither and tlud friends and follow -citizens, instead of aliens aud subju gators. Nor.hern people go there and tind, in the varied resources of Statc3 now freed from the curse of slavery, tresh grounds of coutideuce in the power aud prosperity ot the Union. It remains for men like Mr. Tbaddem Stevens to declare the work of the Grants and Shermans of the army unnu'shed, and to condemn the magnanimous spirit of t le American people. To a man w ho had dared anything or doue anything befitting a hero, we might be disposed to listen with respect. Rut tbut men who never shoul dered a nnifket, nor exposed their precious per soim to danger, should now scold and hector, and talk about ternn which a conqueror may dictate, is i-irpply Intolerable. And when Mr. Stevens, 'who duilng the war attempted nothing more formidable than drafting ot absurd gold bills, spits bis venom upon the President, and impugns the sagacity and patriotism of Andrew Jonm-on, the people will not be long in deciding to whom their confidence should be given. On one hand, they see the type of a class whoso radicalism years ago afforded Southern lire-eaters the means . of fomenting sectional fct)l e, and whoB zeul to-day smacks more of Austrian absolutism than of rational republic anism. On the other hand, they have a Southern loyalist who risked life and every thing in the cause of the Union, who did more than any other single man to organize loyal sentimeut in the border States, and. whoso policy since his elevation to power has beon marked by con summath skill and lodgment and by a disin terested devotion to tho restoration ol national peace and unit y, which entitles him to the co operation of tin country.., It is against this patiiot, tried, and true aaainst this states man, endowed, . so t-uuueuMy . with quali ties peculiarly suited to the crisis that Mr. Stevens-premmptuouslv and insolently p opoBes to arrav tho groat Union party. What good can possibly be effected by these repeated displays' of the radical temper, and these renewed developments of tha rndieat tactics f Is it imagined .that by bullying, aud threatening, and inputting, Mr. Stevens ean drive President Jobuoou from his position? Is it sup posed that a paitv may be overlastmgly fright ened by the ciack of aii oveinoer's wh'p, or per petually misled by cries devoid of reason, and anpeals y. bleb, though full of feoiiud and f ury, signify nothing f If those be the expectation!", we tell those who cherish them that t ley are doomed to disappointment. Andrew Jjhnsoii stood firm In tho Senate with traitors around him; firm In Tennessee, when tirmnesB for tho Union exposed him to trouble aud death; and we are confident that he will not shrink now, with the public opinion of the nation overwhelm ingly In his favor. As 10 toe Union party, we are not loss iiij that its usefulness to the country, and tne pro longation of its power a a party, depend upon the restraints which it shall impose upon the schemes of the radical Bection. Its wort ene mies ore of its own household. If those assault unon the Constitution and the Executive are to be continued, tho Union will be In greater danger from tho do'ngs of professed friondi than Irom. the machinations ot its most mausnant enemies. The time calls for forbearance, moderation, magnanimity. The country stands more in need of p-aetieal Iegi.sla Ion than of "the previous question" and the prescriptions ol leulslative quarks. HDall ft Iip said tnai mo union party ia unequal to the exigencies m tne Kuuauou i The Distuibcd State of Enrope -Danger In Every Country. From the Iltrald. There is hardly a tranquil capital in Europe. Madrid, the capitl of Spain, is revolutionary, tumultuous, dangerous, and under strict military rule. The people shout cheers for the men who are in open rebellion against the Government, and tho Government dares not trust tho very soldiers with which it would control the poople. The capital of Ireland is und( r martial law. The capital of England is In an uncomfortable state, ond decidedly nervous about certain great flrjj attributed to tne outerness an a revenge 01 tne Fenians. It is equally uurointorUble at the apprehension of a Unsocial disaster. Tho finan cial writer of the Loudon 'Times, whoie name appeared lor a good round sum in tho Rebel cotton loan list, is trying to prove that this dis aster will come because the peopte trust tne United States; but the people kuov well enough tnut li it comes it win oe tne result oi nngiauu's immense and ruinous luvestment in the Rebel attempt to destroy tho United States an invest ment which that financial writer encouraged and wrote up, because that was the way In which he was expected to earn the sum for which his name was set down in the Rebel cotton loan list. Paris is also uneasy. It has a financial dan ger, it Has Mexico, ana t na-t uoine. ail these trouble the political atmosphere of the city, and it is hard to say how long the weather will be fair, and Horn when quart' r the storui may come, win the country endure the continual wate In Mexico ot French men and French money in a scheme that caunot possibly bring advantage or honor to France ? What new cuients of political force may be brought to bear on this question by the development ol freat monetary trouble? Ho is it about innie? If popular sentiment in Spam force! a solution of the Italian question there dircc.ly against all the wishes and pre) id ices of the Spanish monarchy, connected by t.ie closest ties with tho Holy See, wdl it do less in Fraace 1 Is France less free iban Spain, witn Spain still under a liourbon t Have the tuuiight ami spirit of the French people less influence ou the Government than the thought-- oi the Spanish people have upon a Bourbon monaichy? Will uot the late Spanish example mleoi Fraace, and stir thoughts like these to a dangerous extent? Brussels is torn by a storm ol parties that may upset the new King at any hour, and read the kingdom of Beleiutn into a French halt and a Dutch half ; Italy has just had a stormy dissolu tion of tbe ministry over the very serious ques tion of taxes; Prupsia has t,ie old trouble ol an ambitious minister at war with her people, and her Scheswig-Holsteln indigestion; Austria, though doing very well in many respects, is far from easy in her Italian possessions. Alto gether Europe is in a Bullicieutly uiiquiet state, and her danger is that if any one of these many dillicultlcs should suddenly become great the storm would spreud into every European coun try, and break up the whule" present political tvstem. Napoleon's Dilemma la Mexico From the Herald. The news from Europe by tbe Africa, arrived at Halifax on Thursday, points, though not very dilinitely, towards tho solution of tha Mexican dilliculty. Probably tbe most Important indica" lion of the turn which events are about to take Is the statement ot the Paris Presse that Napo leon has sent & messenger to Mexico to arraugo fof the speedy withdrawal of the French troops. We are not informed whether there Is still in volved m Buch arrangement the apparently ex isting condition of a recognition of the Mexican empire by the United States Government. Pos itive assurances have teen made by Prouvn do Lb. ins that such are the only terms upon which tho French Enipeior will torsent to recall his troops from Mexico, and Mr. Seward has already announced that those terms''seem to be imprac ticable." Tbe Mexican "dilemma" is bow forming the subject of serious consideration in tho French Corps Legislatif, and our Paris correspondent sas that the opposition is divided upon the matter, one branch the Republican wing being disposed to throw no obstacle in the way ol a withdrawal of the troops from Mexico, a ill permitting the Emperor to extricato himself de cently from the trouble in which he has in volved Fiance. Perhaps they are prepared to give the Emperor rope enough and let him work hi3 own way out ot the difUcultv or fall with it; the latter result probably being not objectionable to the republican wing of the opposition. The London Tunes, wl ich some time ago ad vocated the wihdoui of Napoleon's withdrawing the troops, now endeavors to show that the dilemma w hich the French Emperor has reached is too painful to admit of such a solution. It argues that it he backs out he will be lost, by, subjecting French urms to the charge of recoil ing from a contemptible enemy; ana if he holds on to his support oi Maximilian he will be lost also through embarrassments arising from American resentment. This is very poor conso lation. ' The Times, while congratulating itself that England had the discretion to retire from this Mexican intervention before it became too hot a subject, rubs it in unmercifully to Napo leon by reminding him that ho Is in "a most painful dilemma," from which there is no extri cation. Profits ol the Coal Dealers From Vie Herald. In tracing a long ton of two thousand two hundred aud forty pounds of anthracite stove or egg coal liom its native hills in Pennsylvania to the dealeis' yurds In this city, we find that its value increases in its transit somewhut as follows Btarting at the low price of twenty-live cents Worth in the mino SO 25 Out of the mine 1 Oo Prepared for uso 1-85 In l'lil adelpbia 8 00 At Khzaketiiport, N.

Pei haps somebody in the business can show a cause lor this sudden Increase. ! At Last. Frtm Ihe T ribune. The Committee of Ways and Means yesterday reported to the House a bill to enable tho boor tary of the Treasury to fund the demand and early maturing indebtedness of the Government of the United States, This bill provides: First. That the net enti led "An sot to provide B) i aud means to support (lie Government," up- rroved March 8 18P5, shall be extended ani con strued to authorize the feorctarv of tne l'ran.rv, at liia Ciicretion, to receire auy Treasury notes or otlior oh (Radons laaued under any act ol ( omcrpas, w lioiiKT bearing mteret or not, inexoliane for any dpttript'on ot bond authorised br the act to which thsia on amendment; and a'ao to dnpoae ot anr dfr.riition ot bonJs autuonzeii bv said aor, either in the United htntet or eUowhorn, to rnoh au amount slid in euc.i man tier a d st suoti Mtoa at tin mar Ihiiik aaviFRtue for lawful, inoueir of ti.e United Mate ; or lor aur ireufturr note, oeitifloate of ia ilclittdnRM, or certificates of doposlt, or otner ropre rentatm a i f vaius wi.ich have been or may be isftued under aiiy aoi oi oarron; the proceeds t ieroot to Lo used only lor tef iring 1 roufiny notes, or other ob ligation ia ued under any act of ( ouirmss.

This bill is simple but comprehensive; and we do not see ho it could bo improver). It is said that part of the Committee stood out to the last against the di-crction tomuke a foreign loan; but a our sccurit.es in large amount already are and will continue to be held in Europe, this Fecms more nice than wise. We heartily wish these securities were all held at home; we wish our people were prepared to pay them off, or buy tbein up; but. that is notoriously not the cote; so what is to be gained by shutting our etcs to tho most palpable facts? Wo ate now paying six percent, on mill ons which the holders would gladly exchange lor long live per cents printed in their own lauaiiage, snd payable in their own cit eo. instead ot in a loreigu country; nnd wh should we not save the difference? VVe Gannot itiiOTine. The nuked truth is that the opposition to this as to other provisions of the bill Is impelled by hostility to resumption at all that is, to an early resumption. Every one verbally admits that we must resume some time; but a good manv have lit'h' operations unmatured whereby they hope to n ake theirpile out of currency in flation to thev are irrepmsible in devising firetexts ond dodges for its Indefinite maln euonce. Uut for this, the above bill would promptly paes by a unanimous vole. And now let us entreat Congress to act decisively on this nieasuro forthwith. Industry nnd business have too long awaited the issue. From nearly every city, we hear a complaint of toe scarcity ot dwellings; but whi will erect housed when one that costs $1600 to build now, will be worth but a $1000 when we return to a par currency? Mautlestly, the country should know what to depend upon forthwith. Bents nro rising liKe balloons; office-holders are boring lor higher salaries; larmeis are asked wages which their crops will not pav if they have to be sold at specie prices; and there is anarchy on all hands, which only a return to national solvency can terminate. Gentlemen in Congress I be good enough to let the people Know wnat thev may depend upon with roarard to the currency, and ut the very earliest moment MEDICAL.
