THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, WEDNESDAY, APML 4, 18GG.
LITElt ATUKE. Mr. (Jeorge II. Bokor,- ot thW city, has had tho honor of having a etattiotte made from one of hia poems, by Mr. Samuel Conkey, a jouur sculptor of New York. The poem In ques tion, entitled "la the Wilderness," commemo rates an incident of tho bnltle in that dreadful , locality on the 7th of May. 18(11 the story of a wounded hoy who, after lying: all nlaht un tented on the Held, wa? (Uncovered In the morn ing creeping around and picking violet: "So, lout in thought, scarce conscious ol the deed, Culling the violets, hern and there ke crept Slowly ahl slowly lor his wound would bleed; And the sweet flowers themselves half smllod, half wept, " To be thus fathered in By hands so pale and thin, Bv It n pom tremblinir as they neatly laid Stem upon stem, and bound them in a braid." , The Executive Committee of the Dramatic Collcgp have awarded the prize of one hundred pounds, left by tho late T. P. Cook, the famous actor of sailor part', for the beet nationul drama, to Mr. A. It. Slous, a member of the English Stock Exchange. The title of his drama, which h) soon to be produced, is True to the Core. A new journal has recently been started In Paris in the interest of tho Great Exhibition of next year. One of its objects is to give pub licity to ollicial documents beuring on the exhi bition, and information useful to exhibitors; another, to establish a general international agency wheieby the journal will be in constant correspondence with commissioners, commit tees, and other bidies delegated to the exhibi tion from foreign countries. It is in direct rela tion with the Imperial Commission, which may be reached through its columns. One of its features will be a scries ot biographical sketches of the principal manufacturers aud inventors whose works are to be in the exhibition, of which descriptions will be given while the ex hibition is in progress, toaelher with reports of the different Juries and their awards. Agents lor this paper Le Monileur de T Exposition Uni. tersi'lle de lbC7 are about to be appointed in oui principal cities. The publication ol hi3 translation of Homer lat year by Lord Derby caused his political opponent, Mr. Gladitone, to ahaudou a transla tion of the same poet, upon which he had been engaged for years. He has since changed his determination, we now learn, and in due time another English Homer will appear, bearing on its title-page us translator the name of the Chan cellor of the Exchequer. The original manuscript of numboldt'3 "Cosmos" wa recently presented to tho Em peror Napoleon by M. Buschmnnn, Royal Libra rian and member of tlie Berlin Scientific Aca demy, who was employed by Humboldt to write out tho woik from his rough notes, which were so often corrected and enlarged that a complete and clean copy was neoessr.ry for the printer, each sheet being literally covered by the cramped and frequently illegible writing ot the ' old 8atant. M. Buschmann carefully preserved the manuscripts, which make five large quarto volumes. The Emperor was pleased to accept them, we are told so pleased, indeed, that ho gave M. Buschmann the medal of the Legion of Honor. Messrs. Hurd & Houehton have in prepara tion two books which, if well done, will be valu able contributions to the ever-increasing library Of Shakcspeariana "The Authorship of Shake' ' speare," by Nathaniel Holmes, one of the judges f the Supremo Court of Missouri, and "Shake- epaare's Delineation of Insanity, Imbecility, and Suicide," by Dr. O. A. Kelloge, Assistant Physi clan of the Utica Insane Asylum. The writer of tho first adopts what may be called the Baconian Ikiory of the Shakespeare problem. Judge Holmes is a believer in Miss Delia Bacon, who wa- a believer In Lord Bacon, to the extent that it was he, and not Williaai Shakespeare, who jrrote Shakespeare's plays. Mr. George Jesse has in the press "He- searches into the History of the British Dog, from Ancient Laws, Charters, and Historical Rjcords, with Original Anecdotes from the PjpU aud frose Writers of Mediteval and Modern Times." "Cutubert Eede" (the Hev. Mr. Bradley) is about to publish, in two volumes, "Matins and Muttons." Mr. Andrew Halliday has a new volume neatly ready, tne titio ot .wiiich suggests a a memory of the late Washington Irving, viz., "Sunnyside Papers." Louis, ex-King of Bavaria, is said to be at Nice revising the manuscript of a new volume of poems. King John, of Suxony, has lately published the tbiid aud last part of his translation ot Dante's "Diviua Commcdia." Mips Isa Craig, who came into notice as a poetess by taking the prize lor a Burns ode for his. one hundredth birthday, is said to bo the editor of the Argosy, which we have reason to belive is edited by Mr. Charles Iteadc. M. Lacrolx, who made his mark as a pub, Usher by the sum which he paid tor M. Hugo's "Les Miserables," and the success which he secured tor it, was lately sentenced to a tine of $300 aud a year's imprisonment for publishing a posthumous work of M. Proudhon's, which consisted of skeptical notes on the Evangelists. A new periodical has recently appeared in England, bearing the imprint of Messrs. Strahan & Co. Its title is The Contemporary Review, and its object to present the best thought of the time, particularly in its relation to and in its discussions ol serious theological questions. Its editor is understood to be Dean Alford. Mr, W. II. Russell has another new novel on the eve of publication "The Adventures of Dr, Brady; or, The City and the Camp." Alexander Strahan (London and New York) has in preparation the "Lives of Indian Offl cers," forming a biographical history of the civil and military services of India, by John W, Kaye, author of "The Llfo of Lord Metcalfe:" "The Prospects and Resources ol America, as' certained during a vhjit to the State in the autumn of 1865," by Sir Morton Peto, Bart.

There is a comic paper In Melbourne, Aus tralia, Issued weekly, under the title of the Mel bourne Punch. Its contributors have Just pub- jisnea a comic book ol travel, entitled, "The Ad- ventures of Captain Achilles von Humboldt Blow hard, being a Trip to Wood's Point, showing lUa. uimiiii uuveiiiT inreu upon me roau. , ..

COSiriLED EVERT DAY FOE EVENING TELEGRAPH. The Senate and the President A Compro mise Demanded by the Country. From the Times. The closeness of the vote in Connecticut on Monday, as well as the pause in the proceedings of tho Senate, surely combine to suggest that moderate concession and a reasonable degree of conciliation are required to avert the difficulty between Congress and the Executive. The cause of the poseponeir.ent of debate on the veto is favorable to the calm reflection which must pre cede reconciliation. The death of Senator Foot should call forth something more worthy of his character than stereotyped eulogy and formal regrets; and what is more befitting the occasion than the exercise of the kind, forbeanng spirit which won for him universal respect and an influence which men of more brilliant parts have failed to acquire V If the life of the deceased Senator teach aught worthy of being remembered by his associates, it is that there should bo no divorce between principle and courtesy; that adheronco to one's own convictions is compatible with the fullest respect for tho convictions of others; that to accomplish practical results in statesmanship, as in ordinary life, there must be a reciprocal yielding up ot points not essential to the main V: ... ...' C . 1 LVaI ..... . J u i 1 . . . uuicti iu vivw. ooiuiuou luui was iu iuubu respects an exemplar that may be profitably studied by some whom he has left. Never a trimmer or waveier in politics, he fouud it not necessaiy to justify his patriotism by im pugning the patriotism of others. Difference ol opinion, whether in reference to enda or means, was not held by him to bo a reason lor imputing dishonesty. He had so little ot the Pharisee in his nature, that he was never tempted to rise in his place in the Senate Chamber and thank God that ho was purer, better, wiser than his neighbors. He did not contound insolence with integrity, intolerance with consistency, nor savaeo obstinacy with adherence to principle. And most devoutly Is it to be desired that in all these feature of his character he may be imitated by those who are most loud in their prdlessions of love and veneration towards his memory. v The temper of such an one as Senator Foot will bo pre-eminently salutary and useful when action upon the veto is invoked. Disguise It as we may, the contest which is threatened is pregnant with contingencies that cannot be contemplated without anxiety. More depends upon the manner in which the subject shall be approached than upon the mere fact of its dis posal. Tho veto may be sustained without ne cessarily entailing a final rupture between the President and any considerable proportion of the Republican party; or it may bo overridden without exhibiting members of that party in the llgh of assailants or enemies of the Presi dent But these results are possible only on the supposition that Senators enter upou the discussion with a proper regard lor the rights, and a proper respect tor the opinions and feel ings of the writer of the message under con siderstiou. ' If thev would avert difficulty unattended with danger, they should muke up their mluds to deal with the document belore them on Its merits; to remember thnt the President has transmitted it in the performance of a constitutional duty, and to lndee oi'its obleqtions and areuments soberly and civilly. Abuso of Andrew Johnson will not prove that the Civil Richts bill is either politic or constitutional. Threatening or bragtradoclo ill not overthrow his loulc. or convict him of trespassinsr bejond his province. His argument mttitt be met with argument. His allegations of iincoiiptitutionahtv must be remitted by proofs that his rendering of constitutional provisions is at variance with that of acknowledged authorities. ' ' A discussion of this kind will be seemly and In order, and will reconcile tlia country to the de cision, be It what it may. Any other ft.vlo ot de bate will convert the semblance f a breach into ! a formidable reality ; and while convincing the country that the President Is light and the oppo sition to him wroutr, will necessitate and lUBtify the use of all the means placed at his command, under the letter of tho Constitution, for the pro tection of his position. There mieht be some excuse for a trial of strength, irrespectlv0 of consequences, if the purposes of tho Presldt were shown to be at. variance with the ostensible object of the measure he has vetoed. But this plea is not available. If tho Civil Rights bill be a bill to protect tho Civil rights of the freodmen, and nothing more, its aim is in accord with the viows and alms of the President. His rejection ot the measure applies, not to the object as thus understood, but to the agencies to Da created and the means to bo employed for its accom plishment. To assume, then, that so far as this end is concerned, concert of action between Congress and the President is impossible, Is to insult the capacity ot th former, or to attribute to the latter a want of sincerity. The country will not sustain a charge ot this kind against the President, until he refuse to siirn a bill divested of the extraneous and unconstitutional characteristics to which he has obiected. And an unwillingness on the part ol Congress to en deavor to care for the freedmT. by a iresort to less obnoxious machinery; or the assertion of a less obnoxious authority, than is covered by tho vetoed bill, will generate the idear that tho wellBre ot the emancipated slave Is a mere pretext for the furtherance of some unavowed purpose. Instead of using the debate on the veto as an opportunity for intensifvlns the diflerenc be tween the President and the majority in Con gress, we would lam hope that it will be made the groundwork of a oommomise which shall restore cordial harmony to the two branches of tne tiovernmem. A compromise there must be. sooner or Inter, or a dead-lock will be inevitable. I he nnauclul and business interests ot the couti try are suffering from leeislatlve neglect. To pre cipitate a crisis now, as between uonjrress and the President, will bo to prolong the uncertainty which has already operated disastrously upon every material interest, and at no distmt dav to produce n crisis to which even politicians cannot pretend to oeinniuerent. The country calls for practical legislation Before thi.s can be had, however, there must be concessions touchiuir questions of which the trcpdmcn are made the scanecoat. Why not make the t'ivil Rights bill the beginning of the wort oi compromiser The Finality Impottnnt Proclamation ot the President The Southern States Re stored. from the lltratd. The President has tittinily celebrated the first 'anniversary of the fall of Richmond by the pub lication of a proclamation officially announcing tho Rebellion at an eud, peace restored, the State Governments again reconstructed and in working order, and the General Government firmly in power throughout the entire Union. The great purpose and object of the w ar was the preservation of the Union. To doubt this was till lately but little less than treason; aud manv who from time to time ventured to declare that the object ot the war was the conquest and destruction ot certain States were lor no other reason classed as lecble friends, if not positive foes of the country. Indeed, the declaration that the war was one of oppression, subjuga tion, and conquest was tue st aple ot those who op posed the war and Impuucd our motives, whether In the South, in England, or in the Rebel press of our Northern cities. All the country can remember well the supreme scorn and indigna tion with wnicu tne orators ot tue ncpubiican party denied the declarations ot tue enemy Each vied with the other in the endeavor to give more forcible expression to the great pur pose of the people that the war was to maintain the Union, and to show that if the war should involve the abolition of slavery it would be only as an incident, and not as a primary object. We were even reproached by Earl Russell with a want of this purpose against slavery. Congress, in sympathy with the people, went to the limit of the language to give emphasis to the declaration that the war was a war lor the Union. Just alter the battle ot Bull Run it adopted a resolution in which were these words: "In this national emergency Congress, ban ishing all feeling ot mere passion and resent ment, will recollect only its duty to the whole country ; that this war is not prosecuted upon our part in any spirit of oppression, nor lor any purpose of conquest or subjugation, nor tor the purpose of overthrowing or interfering with the rights or established institutions of those States, hut to dclend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitution nd all laws made in pursuance thereof, and to preserve tho Union, with all tho dignity, equality, and rights of the several States unimpaired ; that as soon as these objects are accomplished the war oupht to cease." Nothing could be more emphatic or positive than this. But there was one representative who believed that even this did not go tar enough as to the pteservation of the States, and who therefore desired to go further. This whs Thaddcus Ste vens, of Pennsylvania. On December 4. ltiii'2, that gentleman offered in Congress resolutions declaring that "the Union must be and remain one and indivisible forever;" and also that "if any person in the employment of the United States.in either the legislative or executve branch should propose to make peace, or should advise the acceptance of any such proposition on any other basis than the integrity and entire unity ot the United (States and their Territories as they existed at the time of the Rebellion, he will be guilty of a high crime." Such was the position at that time of Con press, of the country, and of the Republican party, then in sympathy with the people and ex pressing tho popular wdl. At that time Con gress, the President, and the pesple were asked to acknowledge that the abolition of slavery was the object of the war, and they repudiated the thought. Congress was asked to declare that the States which rebelled had forfeited their ex istence as States. Mr. Conway, of Kansas, offered a resolution declaring "that the Ameri can Union consists of those States which are now IotrI to thp Forlorn! Constitution." It wnw tabled by one hundred and thirty-two VOtOS .Dir. cenway uunseii being the only person who voted in its iavor. By the light of these facts it is readily seen that the now dominant faction In Congress which claims to ba the Republican party, the Union party, the party that carried the country through the war, is not that party at all. Thaddeus Stevens is jiow rampant for Congress to commit what, as a Republicau, he declared would be a high crime. Congress now dally assumes that the Concessional declara tion of Ibtil was a gigantic falsity, and acts on that very negation of the States which is voted down as outrageous. The President alone adheres to and maintains the great national principles and policy ot the party that carried (he country through the war. Abandoned by Congress, he has, pursued to their logical conclusions, without reference to that body, the principles enunciated in the resolu tions quoted above and iu his proclamation of peace and union. All the States have now, since the nullification of the ordinance of seces sion by the Texas Convention, done all that lay in their power towards once more taking their proper position in the Union. It ouly remained tor the president to do the rest on behalf of the country. His clear duty was to pronounce their complete restoration, and this he has promptly, boldly, aud unreservedly doue. He has done this entirely without reeard to the present course of Congre-s, nnd really in delauce of It. Tho Constitution. - the repeated declarations of Ihe part to which be oeshis position.' the voice of the whole peoplp, marked out this lino of ci-nduct with unmistakable distinctness, and loll him no option. i , ; The Bankrupt Bill. f rom the Tribune. We hoi I that tho State has no moral right to fetter peimancntly the energies ind discourage the hopes of its ciil.cus who may have bopu onco unfortunate in business. We deny tbat it is either politic or just to mortgage the futuro earning ol a debtor who, being unable to pay his creditors in full, has honestly surrendered his whole property, aud whose assets boar , a reasonable proportion to his obligations. We affirm that to hold the sword of the law over such a man's head indefinitely Is a wronir to him, no benefit to his creditor, and a serious injury to society In general. Hence we lielieve in a bankrupt law, and we earnestly hope the House will Mr. Jenekes' bill. We must presume the Uouso has examined ihis measure, yet we hear ot no serious objec tion to any part of it. The bill Is not rejected because ot its imperfection, but because of its perfection. It was before the last Conaress in substantially the same shape as at present, and was subjected to thp closest criticism. Last Tuesday the House went through it, section bv section, and its enemies could only object that it was too well drawn. Indeed, the main fea tures und principles of the bill are not experi mental nor theoretical, but have stood the test ol experience in several States, and are lirmly established by repeated judicial decisions. Mr. Jenekes bus framed his bill upon the model of the Massachusetts Insolvent Laws, which have grow n into a system through the Urtace of many Tears, and are Generally considered by the pro fession the bert existing In this country, or in Kufthmd. Those who oppose the billl do so on uneral principles. They do not waut any Bankrupt law. But we believe nay, we are sure the country dees want a bankrupt law, and that tho measure is not less populsr with tho creditor class than with the deotor class. Business men as a ride know their own Interests. They know that a man who has tailed, hus tho lite crushed out of him by a condition of the law which permits a creditor to pounce on the first thousand dollars that bis debtor struggling up again in the world can make. Whereas, if you give tha. debtor a legal release, you set Wm on his fee, you en courr.ee him to start airesh, you enable him to acQiiirothe means eventually to nay thoc very debts the legal existence ot which would have prevented his making tho effort. You give com fort to his lumily: you add wealth to society. In the wreck and prostration of business inter ests which the last live years have witnessed, there ure hundreds of thousands wai'lntr the passuge of this Bankrupt bill as the signal of tueir emancipation. Their property is gone; their creditors will pet nothlns if ttie bill doesn't puss; they cannot be any w orse off if you pass a doen such laws. Tho Chombeis of Commerce of New York, of Boston, and many other cities, representing the creditor class, have recognized this by their approval ol the bill In question. Tho House may well abide by the judament. of the only class which can ever theoretically be deemed opposed to the measure. The majority against the bill last Wednesday was small, the vote being .r9 to 7U. A motion to lay on the table, a motion to reconsider, by w hich its enemies hoped to kill It finally, was immediately alter lost by 59 to C8, and the subject was postponed till April 4. We trust no Irlend of the bill will fail to be present when it again comes up. A Little Stoiy with a Little Moral. From the Daily News. There is a story extant, written In most ex cellcnt French, concerning the father of the present Bey ot Tunis, which, while it indicates a barbarous condition of society, and a serious disregard of human life under the Crescent, still bears with it a moral that cannot escape the reflecting mind. This morose ruler, it is said, was once waited upon by the Admiral commanding the French fleet in the Meditcr ranean Sea, who paid him a visit of cere mony, accompanied by the chiet officers of his squadron. In au anto-chambor of the palace, a lunctionary of state met them and with profound salums informed the Admiral that his Royal Highness would shortly irive them audience, and beirtred that the visitors would pardon his absence for a short time, as he was engaged at that moment in squaring accounts w ith one ot his ministers. Tho Admiral, in response to this, declared hi3 wuilnenesB to await his sublime aiaiesty's con vemence. In so doing, both he and his officers were struck with the mysterious sounds which emanated (torn behind the velvet curtains which led into the grand audience chamber. What ever mmlit be the uey s method ot settling up wuh his relractory Minister, it was evident that that official, or somebody else, was faring badly uurinc the operation, nut lor tne improbability of the thing, It would have appeared that that aaiunct to Government was subjected to tho rudest tieatment in the way of blows and all manner ot objurgations. After a while, however, a deathly silence supervened to the noise ot struggling behind the curtain, the drapery was drawn to either side, aud the Admiral and his suite appeared belore the Bey, who, seated on his throne, seemed trom his flushed countenance and his angry frown to have undergone no little excite ment. When the expressions of compliment were got through with, and the Bey had grown a little calmer, a slave in attendance was ordered to remove the cloak trom something lying at the loot of the throne. The order was obeyed, and his Sublime Mightiness, directing the attention of his visitors to it, remarked: "That carrion, an hour ago, was my Minister ot War. At the time ot your airival 1 was engaged in settling auairs with him. Last week I indicated a certain change in military affairs as tho best, in my judgment, for Tunis; ana tne man whose carrass is belore vou. notwithstanding the fact that he is supposed to assist u?v Government, advocated, and as for as be could, carried out exactly a dillerent policy, For that reason, and f or the good of this peorlo I hse been compelled to satisfy justice by applying the bastinado ana the oowsinng to him. I have ouly to add that I gave him his choice between a cup of poisoned cotfeo or Btrar sling, and he chose tho latter; and you will perceive that everything that could bo done, consistently with honor, was done in his case." As we havo before remarked, this little inci dent in the Bey's htstory, while it has its dark shades, has also Its gleams of light. While we would naturally deprecate so sudden and ab rupt a conclusion of an official or ministerial career even, for example, in the case of Mr. Stanton it Is not to be denied that the prompt ness with which this half-barbarous Prince dis possessed himself of an incubus upon his ad ministration, and an obstacle to his authority, is much to be commended. And we cannot close the narrative of this brief story without de claring that it carries with It a most excellent moral for Christian rulers, and, among them shall we say if Mr. Johnson. Prospect of a Great War. From the World. The last steamer from Europe brings news full of interest. Prussia and Austria are exchanging hostile notes, mustering armies on their respec. tive frontiers, and the next steamer may bring us "the clash of resouuding arms." There is, consequently, excitement on the stock exchanges of Europe; tho funds are falling; and a, pause has been given to speculative enterprises. The cause of this quarrel is no mystery. It relates to the disposition of the Duchies of Schleswlg and Holstein, which were won by the combined German armies from Denmark. Aus tria is w illing to divide the spoils, to make the l Duchies an independent power, or even lo give I'rusia the lion h share, includlnir the harbor of Kiel i but Prussia insts's upon annexing both tne Duchies to her own dominions, and will mnkfno concessions to either Austria or the fjerrosii Confederation. ' ' j Should Von Bismarck Miceeed in this daring but dishonest scheme, it will make Prussia the master ot Germany, and degrade Austria to the position of a third-rate power. Should a war break out between these two powers it would almost inevltnbly Involve the ret ot Europe. Austria's difficulty would be Italy'aopportuiiity, nnd a dash would probably be made at Venetia. Indeed, there are so many grave possibilities growing out ol this war that the news by tho next steamer will bo looked for with eager interest. t SPECIAL NOTICES. SEMINARY OF ST. CHARLES BOR ROW to.
