1IV1CEIAL OPINIONS OF LEADING JOURNALS VrOA' LUUREST 101' ICS. comruiD iviiiv day rem ivkkiho tki,foiiaph Common Sense and Cholera. Prom the Tribune. Mr Acton, at the meeting or tlio Doiud of Health, four days ngo, Inquired how it happened that the steamship Virginia whs allowed to come up tuo Bay with th cholera on board. JVe havo seen no satisfactory answer to thia question, and, still less, any reasonable explana tion why the Ship was permitted to lie offStaten Inland from Wednesday evening till the next moraine. The RBfniranro that heretiher t'ie duty of the Health Ofiicera will be properly dm i: burped is very well ; but let us hope that we fray not have to regret that the stable door was not shut before the horse was stolon. The learned doctors are still disagreed whether cholera Is contagious or Infectious, und in the meantime the pestilence stalks Jrora country to country, and hurries thousands to their graves. While the question Is in dispute, common sense may be permitted to have a hcarintr. The dis ease breaks out on board two steamships sailing Jrom a hf althy port, and in the course of twelve fiovs makes fearful havoc. Both these ships belong to the same line, are constructed in the same manner, having a lower deck below the water-line, which no ventilution can reach ex cept through windsails, Hud where Irom a thou sand to twelve hundred human creatures are fuddled, breathing, over and over again, the poisonous ex halations Irom their own bodies. I n any other than a cholera season, the report on the arrival ot the vessels would have been, without a doubt, a large percentage of deaths from ship lever or smallpox. In a cholera sea son tne disease inevitably generated whether spontaneously, or from contagious infection, is jiracttcally of no Importance takes the form of cholera. The circumstances were favorable to the de velopment of pestilence, wherever it comes from. Cholera does not break out in ships going from countries where it does not exist, but in those countries where it is prevalent. It got on , board tbe England and the Virginia, and It would get on shore to propagate itiilt, if it round again the favoring circumstances. Theio are scattered in abundance all over this citv. This is common sense, aud of far more value than volumes of medical theory. Had the Virginia and the England had decent ac commodation tor their hitman freight, instead ot stowing them away like dunnage in the hold, they mitrht have crossed the oceun as other ves sels did, at ttie same time, without an outbreak ot any disease whatever. As it was. no oiher result was nossihle. and the pestilence took that lorm wuicb, from some unknown case, it was now certain to lace. The only thing to be done, if that is possible, is to coutine it to that locality, prevent its further propagation, and destroy its germ. At least this can be attempted; and to neglect such a measure of precaution is simply criminal. No chip from Europe should be allowed to enter this port without careful examination; and, if she has the enolera on board should be strictly quarantined. It may be safely taken for granted that no vessel like the Virginia and England will cross the ocean this summer with out bringing the cholera, if loaded with pas sengers. The President on Representation In Congress. Jrom the Times. When the fever which just now inflames the public mind against President Johnson shall lave subsided, as it certainly will, candid peo ple will have no difficulty in seeing that it has been largely due to studied and malicious mis representation ot his position on various ques tions of public importance. And Upon no one subject have these misrepresentation been more studied and persistent, than upon his views in regard to the representation of the Rebel States in Congress. From one end of the country to the other, he has been denounced for urging the admission ot Southern members, Joval and disloyal alike, to their seats. The ust cry that "Rebels shall not ruie the nation they tried to ruin" has been so echoed and re-echoed as to Imply that It was hostile to the President's policy of restoration. Members ot Congress in their speeches have dwelt upon it in this sense. Hostile newspapers throughout the land have tilled their columns with the most loitter diatribes upon this text, and the public mind ever.v where has been thoroughly tilled with the belief that the President demands the in.stant admission to their seats in Congress of men elected by the Rebel States, without inquiry into their action in the past, or their attitude towards the Government in the present posture of public affairs. It would be useless to deny that these etrorts, systematic, persistent, and unscrupulous as they Jiave been, have proiuced a marked effect upon the public mind. They have seriously impaired that confidence in the President's wisdom and fidelity to the principles which have crushed the Rebellion, which is essential to the harmo nious co-operation of the Executive and Legisla tive departments ot the Government, and to the welfare ot the nation in thecris' through which it is passing. We have no (ear that these efforts or their efl'ects will be lasting. The impression they lave produced is utterly lalso, and is as mis chievous as it is unjust. In everything he has said upon this subject in his Message to Con gress, in his veto ot the Free linen's Bureau Bill, in his speech of the 2'2d ot February, and In all 3iis addresses to delegntions from the Southern States, he has insisted that none but loyal men should be admitted to seats in Congress, and that each House has the right to judge for itself, and by such tests as it may prescribe, offline loalty of every man who claims to represent any district of any State. And in his speech to the soldiers and sailors on Wednesday Ust, he "was still more explicit and emphatic upon this point, Alter showing that, under the Constitu tion and in conformity with the fundamental principles ot our form of Government, the people ot every State are entitled to representation, he went on to say: "And when We sav admit representatives, what do We mean? We mean representation in the constitu tional and lawabidinir souse, as was mtcnuod at tho bfcinuing of the Government. The Constitution declares in express terms that each Hone, ttie Senate and House ol ltepreentativts, each acting lor iteeli, shall be tbe judue ol tlio returns, elections, and qualifications of its own members It is lor each House to fettle that question under the Constitution and under the solemn sanction of a" oath, Aud can we be'ieve that either House would admit any member into its body to participate In tho JeniKiation of ttie country who was not uuuUUod and tit to sit in that bodv and participate in iu iirooeedinfrs? The? have the power not the two louses, but each Home lor itself. The Constitution further declare that no .state shall be deprived ot it equal suffrage in the Senate ol the United States with out its consent, Tneu, whore do we stand 1 All that is needed to finish this great work ot restoration is for the two Houses respectively to determine the question. Oli I but some one will say, 'A traitor mlttut come in.' 1 be answer to that is, that each House must be the Judue, and it a traitor presents himself, cannot either House know that he ia a traitor r (Applause ) Ahd it he is traitor, can they not kick him out of the door, and send bim back, saying to the people who aout una, 'You must tend ni a loyal man.'

It a traitor pieseuts hiniRelf to either House, cannot that House say to hi in, "Mo, you cannot be admitted into this iody. Go back. We will not deny your people the xirhtof representation, but they must send a loyal representative. (Cheers ) And when the Htutes do solid loyal representatives, can von have any better evidenee of their fidelity to tbe Constitution and the laws There is no oae learned iu the Constitution and the laws who will sav that if a traitor happ n to Bet iuto CougreH that body cannot exoel him alter he pets in. That uiakss assurance doubly sure, and ooniorms the aotion of taa (iovernmetit to the Constitution of our lathers Hence 1 av, let numand by that Constitution ud in standing by It tub ooveuaut will be preserved' THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, MONDAY, The Prepidert's iheorv upon ihin point Is, that each House has the right 10 tudge of the quulih rations ol its members that tcy(tlti) an essen t al ard Indisputable "qualificaiioii" of in ember tbtp; find thaf each Iioufc das the absolute and i.iifiualiiied richt to decide bv ten attiH, or by tun other tests it n ay see (it to applv, whether a clHinmnl is loval or liot. If hn is loval, he holds that hell to bo admitted. It nothe mav an 1 must be excluded. And this applies to everv ftfjte nud to every distrirt and to everv cl.timsnt to a seat in Crngiefs. And If a dislovnl man should by any chance secure admission, he holds flint he nia.v be expelled. And when In tbe St rafe of the Uuitcd States, he proved his per sonal devotion to this principle by voting (or the expulsion ol Senator Dricht, froin Indiana, bo catiHf bo was proved to be n disloyal man, and thus "disqualified'' for holding a seat In the national councils. 1 he only point of difference In this connection between the President and th leaders iu Con gress is, that they exclude loval and disloyal alike excluding Ma.vnaid, and Stokes, and Cooper, loval men from Tennessee, who can take the test oath, just as rigidly and relent lessly as Stephens and Johnson and Graham ai.d others, w ho cannot. In his judgment, this is a power which the Constitution has not con ferred upon them, and an abuse which dis courages loyalty and fidelity to the Union in the Southern States-, while everything should be done to build them tip. Time will show which is the wisest Dohcv: but the PrpHidnnr'a i.rnn position on the subject ought not longer to be iiiibuiiuithioou. npoleon and Prussia The European 1 romnmme. from the tlerald. Tbe pamphlet recently published in Paris, en titled "Napoleon III and Prussia," sketches dis. tinctly the programme for the reconstruction of Europe to which we alluded a few days ago. It may be taken as an indication of the purposes of the Emperor ot tho French, and if It argued strictly the advantages ol an alliauce between France and Prussia it would be a deeply plguiti- ennt fact. International flatteries, an entente cordiaie between two great powers, is at any time an ominous fact for the peace ot Europe. An entente cordiale means war. Alliances such as this proposed are the preliminaries of aggres sion, and are especially a favorable means with , the Emperor Napoleon for tho accomplishment I of n great purpose. An alliance with Kncrhmri secured tho balance against Russia lor the ! Crimean war; an alliauce with Victor Emanuel against Austiia secured the Emperor's objects in Italy, and the alliance to be mado bet(en rrnuce ana rrussia will lead to equally iiioweu- tins evcnis. According to the pamphlet. France is not to I take any active part in the war. The Empire is I peace, 'i be alliance is to make FrtiMa sure that France will not be against her, aud for this little assurance she is willing to eerie a "rectiri- I cation of the French frontier." Could an alii- ! ance be put oetoro the trench neoule in nnv more tempting shape than this flattering the national vanny, ollcrmg territory, ami requir ing nothing? As for the udvontages to be se cured to Prussia, they will excite sympathy rather than objections in the French l'niud, for t bey are based upon aetriraeut to Austria and the humbling of the Ilapsburg. This is the Key note of alliance between t lie two peoples. Here is a point on which France and Prussia can fra ternize far more earnestly than France eer did with any other power, to humble Austria is a tradition of French history aud the political ne cessity of Prussia. This appeal to the people is skilfully made, and H it shall stimulate a Prus sian sentiment throughout France; if the Em peror, who has already arranged tke alliance, shall seem to be forced into it by national ne cessities, thd pamphlet will have accomplished all that it was inteuded to. Must the expressions made here in reference to the Rhenish frontier be accepted as the Emperor's sentiments on that subject? If Europe is to be shaken by a great war, with the territorial aegrandizement ot Prussia for its object, will France, as the ally of Prussia, be satisfied with a coal-mine ? No one can believe it. It is well enough to say to Germany just now that France only wants a coal-ram e, and it is also well enough to promise to the French people that they shall not be called upon for war expenditures. By that means both will consent the more reudily to this alliance; but by-and-by "unforeseen" circumstances will arise making it necessary to change this simple plan. France may be ibrced to arm, and even to occupy the Rhine. There is no telling what may happen when war is once begun; and, if France does occupy the Rhine while Austria and Prussia are contending for the mastery, then, ii Prussia wIub, she will have enough to leave those provinces magnanimously to France; while, if Austria wins, France, in self-defense, will be compelled to hold the Rhine as a natural frontier and safeguard against the colossus. Thus, whoever triumphs, France will get more than a coal-mine, though it is not expedient for her to say much about it at present. Since Bismark ' is praised in Paris as the "Richelieu ot Prussia." and accredited with having revived the 8chleswig-Holstein question 'with admirable ability," it cannot be longer doubted that the question of the duchies is a mere pretext; that it Is brought in by Prussia only to give her a moral foothold for difference with her great neighbor, and Jthat war for the aggrandizement of Prussia and the abasement of Austria is the fixed programme ot Bismark and Napoleon. If the sentiment of hostility to Austria shall run high In France during this war, as it probably will, what is to become of the alliance between Napoleon and that unfor tunate member of the Ilapsburg family now In Mexico? France, sympathizing with ' Prussia, will hate Austria more than ever; can she, then, at such a time stomach an alliance with the Em peror of Austria's brother, the more especially when this latter alliance may embroil her with, the United States ? No; and this will be to Napo leon an additional advantage ot the Prussian alliance. It furnishes a solution ol his ditlicul ties iu the Mexican muddle. His withdrawal from Mexico will be forced by tho necessities of France, and th's Is a plea that will render precipitate retirement a virtue rather than a hiiimliittiou., ' 1'iesident Johnson's Recent Speeches. From the Wortd, Many Republicans have entertained a faint hope that since the triumph by Congress in passing the Civil Rights bill over the Presi dent's veto, he would show a disposition to compromise. But the President's speech to the soldiers and sailors on Wednesday, aud the short speech to the colored people on Thurs day, effectually dispel all such delusive hopes.' Mr. Johnson shows himself as firm in all his leading positions as if the victory bad been on tbe side of the veto; and ihe feeling of indomi table hostility with which he regards the radicals is expressed with more vijror than even in the speech on the 22d of February. The impression made by Wednesday's speech on the (action ot murplots may be estimated imin the following specimens ot au article which appeared ou'Thursday in Forney's Phila delphia Press: '"We indulge the sincere hope that ii President Johnson believed it becoming his high (losition to niake another speech to a mas meeting, he would present a healthy and exculpatory contrast to tue display of the 22d ol February but the telegraph io leportol his address to the soldiers and sailors in Washington, last evening, shows how utterly any such I'ope lias been disappointed. - . i "Good men will prav to be protected Irom any more ot these palutul exhibition. Deputations, who with well to the country, should stipulate, when ever they call upon the occupant of the White Houbo, against any such infliction as a Presidential siioeoh." ' The Evening Post finds fault with President Johnson for the sensitiveness he evinces to the attacks of his enemies. That paper greatly mis conceives the character of Andrew Johnson, if it supposes that he alluded to the attack of his calumniators for the lack of self-control, or the love of Invective.

Hts irrpoitantthnt the country should know that President Johnson repudiates any such rnilk-ar.d-wafer twnuole. Thoro ts a wide gull between him and Congress, aud as he does not intrna to surrender his policy, but to apoeal to u'" i-uuiiuy in me nr xi uongresMonai elections. i 19 Vj thc vpr nrst to'8ef"ouce that the poonie should ktiow, from some pcriectly authentic source, that the President regxrds the breach as important enough to arouse, and In iimtiu. htm in expressing, his energetic uidignat.on. When ! J'6 denounces the opponents of his policy with the unsparing severity he used on Wi.imri. I 0 5,le red' hi" speech will fail to see thai ui uues not regard tuo opposition made to bis policy as a slight or trivial matter. How can he I appeal from Congress to the people but by am I phnsizlng the difference which, as olten as an I den ln oecll',, lne licI,ubiicans so perversely I Pretending to indorse both tho President and Congress, as the Republican Convention did in Connecticut, is a dishone'-t absurdity which ought to be exposed; and the exposure wMl have most cllect from Pi tsident Johnson's own lips in iiu uj l uuKi ne nave unmasked this trick so etlectually, as by allowing the people to see that he is intensely indignant. If lielis incensed the people will leadily infer that he thinks he has something to be angry about; and so tar as they respect his judgment, thev will cease to regard the diflerence between him and Congress as of minor importance. But in what way can a man so eflectunll.v convinco others that he is angry, as by exhibitina the signs of anger in the old fashioned, genuine way? If Mr. Johnson had coolly calculated ihe effect of his speech, he could have said nothing better adapted to his purpose. The redoubled abuse it calls forth from the radicals attests thesnreness ol his aim. The contrast which he draws between him scll, w ho perilled everything lor the Union, and the closet patriots" who never confronted tiaueer, is well calculated for popular effect, by reason ot its obvious tiuth. If Sumner and his condmtors had faced the risks and made the sacrifices that Andrew Johnson did, during the war. tbey might, with more grace, impeach his pa.notieui. The course ot the President's ac cusers, during the war, required neither moral nor physical courage. Any man in their neigh borhood would have risked his reputation and liberty bad he dared oppose the Union. There was no chance for a stay-at-home patriot in the AOnll 'l 111 III Mr Intinonnt. , He hits shown a devotion io the Union as much t superior to that of his traducers UH run null ho imagined; aud iu appealing to the people against tmni, He md well to wulve delicacy and state the pinm num. it is lmpoitiiut lor the public interests that the tacts snould be weighed, and in no other way could they reach so many people or secure so much attention, as when uttered oy him. At present, as well :s when he was facing his Rebel neighbors in Tennessee, Mr. Johnson has more important things at heart than a fastidious regard tor his personal ease or digpitv. He speaks to carry his point, and without ttiinking or caring what small litterateurs mav say of his stvle, he usc6 such language as will make the intented impression on the great body of his countrymen, who are not small litterateurs, but plain people, who, neither In their own practice nor in Judging of others, enter into the refine ment ot expressing indignation in restrained language. In his speech to the negroes the President claimed that he is the best friend thev have had: and that in securing lor them the anti-slavery amendment to the Constitution he had done more for their race than any other man iu the United States. Tho truth ol this claim cannot be successfully controverted, and, in view of the Cougress ional elections, it could not nave been asserted with so much effect by all the newspa pers and Ptump speakers of the country as by President Johnson htmelf. Prentice on Brownlow. From the Daily Ntv. Brownlow, the tnfant terrible of Tennessee politics; the "bad old man" who deals in diaboli cal expletives and consigns his opponents to a place not particularly cool; the modern Draco, who writes his laws In the blood of hunted down, persecuted "Rebels;" the archetype of a Southern "Union man," and the most notable defender of "the flag we love" south of tho line; the iconoclast who spurns tho idols he whilom worshipped, and who takes Cuflee under his w ing with a parental devotion in his new condi tion of freedom Brownlow, rumpty, roaring, ruthless, rash, ridiculous Brownlow, has met his match at last. In the course of his varied and checkered career the redoubtable defender ot the faith in Tennessee has had the misfortune to run afoul ot the editor of the Louisville Journal. We avow a prolound ignorance as to the cause that ted the Tennessee parson to pit his powers against the Kentucky writer. It is enough to know that the direful conjunction has occurred and, as a consequence, the former has come out ot the conflict shorn of every vestige of the bravery with which he went into it, aud so pitiable, melancholy, aud wretched an object of commiseration that the laugh upon the hps of the looker-on is changed into a ghastly stare of horror at what remains of tnis honest man. Did we not have the evidences before us we could scarcely conceive, ut this lute day. that this stalwart and blatant champion of the negro emancipation should ever have threat ened to "extinguish the last abolition foothold (meaning fcew England) on the continent of America." And were we not fortnied by the same testimony to the fact we would scout with derinon the assertion that he ever announced to the pious workers in the vineyard of freedom that they were "infamous villains," and "with the vengeance of an infuriated foe we will be upon you iu the North, at the hour ot midnight, and as long as a inciter match can be tound we will burn up your substance." Thus Brownlow, in a letter, written In May 18tiO, and addressed to the Rev. Mr. Prvne a letter which the editor of the Louisville Jour n'hus resurrected in a most untoward moment for the faithful, and wherewith, iu the contro versy, he deals the writer a destructive and disheartening blow. Wo submit that theTesti3 citation ot lancnape like the following penned by Brownlow only six years ago, U most calami tous at this time when all puod men of his and Mr. B. F. Butler's class are so diligently seeking to atone lor their errors: "Face to faoe, knife to knife, stool to steel, and pike to piko, we would meet you, and as we would caue you lo bleed at evtry pore, we would make you regret, in the bitter agonies of death, that you bad ever tlt any concern for the Atncau race "fir, it the fanatical, wicked, and internal course pursued by you and your unpriuoipled ansociates i continued, the remit will lie as I have laid, and you or our children will live to see It. Pale-iaced nov el ty and dismay are staring some of your inanutao turer and operatives in tue lace. We are genuine our order to taelaud and France for good, and ?,r,vI.nour .hT"-Jervin freedom ahnoken into the holding of Union meetints, and making thee aaainst their will cume all airitaior of the slavorv question, and resolve that John Krown aud bis mur derous associates u only Jaatio wl.eu hung at Charlestowul Carry on your war if you choose death rather than iile, aud we will stain every swamp In the (south with your and our own blood asd with the vengeance of an Infuriated foe we will be upon you in the North, at the hour of mid. night, aud as long a a luciler match can be tound we will burn up your subKtauoe." Having thus, by the introduction of this dam nable evidence, prepared the victim for the sacrifice, the editor of the Journal proceeds to ol er him up. "He published," savs tue Louis ville editor, "the infernal luuguaee that we have cited, when, perhaps, no other man iu all the world woujd have dollied his. mouth or paper ithit to save Ms neck irim the hangman's 1. alter. He showed himself a walking volcano, vithtnow upon bis peak and all hell iu his I o'rm." The editor then proceed, truly, to say, that It is "most extraordinary and dlnc;rneelul" that tho people of Tennessee, knowing this man ai they did, should have elected him Govcrrior. V. axing warm with tbe sacrifice, taking a merci less delight iu the contortions of the untortu rate victim, and becoming savage with the smell ot the writhing wiei'hes' blood, the Jour hal thus finishes the miserable mau: "No other State was ever ufllicted, and diuracrd, ar.ri curbed with such an unmitigated ana unintii p ii bio, mch an unredeemed and irredeemable barkpiimd n her II I if I Masiotrate.

For en outsider, as we confess ourselfto be, to attempt to add to the rigor or the above, would be useless and futile. This dissection, by a ma?ter hand, of Brownlow's many infirmities will stand a Sphinx of literature, uuparsllrled and not to be paralleled. The only doubt that will be left in the mind of the render of the fore going cxtiacts will bo as to which of tho two de serves the palm for a peculiar us ot the English language. That doubt, it ts true, might be solved by a perusal of Brownlow's reoinder to what we have given; but so far the Jountai has doubled him up, and has left him gasping life less and in the pangs of threatened dissolution. It Brownlow should ever recover himself, how ever, we pity the editor ot the Journal. SPECIAL NOTICES. DEPARTMENT OF PUKLIC HIGH- wnv Office, fa). W. corner nf FIFTH unit WAT.. MJT Streets.
