We shad never not realy to jpf-i me until we shall have tirmly resolved to do so at a definite and not distant day.

The compromise arrived Ht by the Senate in ehaoing the Reconstruction amendment gives rvident satisfaction to the great majority of the Union party throughout tbe country. The effect of the radical action in the House upon the fall prospects of the parly has been gradual but unmistakable, in every State in which elections are by-andbj to come off. a feeling of appre hension has been engendered which hardly aidniitted of mistake, either as to the cause or- the result it foreshadowed. From New "York to Illinois the conviction among Uuiou jnen has been that by submitting " to the dictation of Mr. Stevens, and by committing themselves to the impracticable policy to "which he has required their adhesion, not a Sew Congressional delegations were handing ever their leipective States to the Democratu. 3t ha$ been (els that a party pledged to the dis union theories and disorganizing tactics of the radicals could not go belore the constituencies without a certntntv ol defeat. For the Demo crats, notwithstanding the remembrance of the Chicago platform, would be enabled to make a Idattsible pretense of supuorting President J jhn ou in his plan of restoration; and with ihe Union party divided, and the radical section "wieldjug contro', the success of tde Democra'ic candidates would almost everywhere be assured. 'iliis hag been partially changed ty the judi cious and conciliatory course of the' Senate, in expunging the sweeping measure of disfran chisement, and h. sorting a substitute which, though not altogether unobjectionable, is, by comparison, moderate and conciliatory. By this tep the Senate hav repudiated the proscriDtve yrniciples which the House radicals, with the Jielo of the. Copperheuds, proposed to apply against the Southern people. To this extent (good baa been accomplished. And the more Jiopeful toneol correspondence from tbe States in which elections will take place next autumn, shows the impression produced upon the promi nent minds of the parly by the Senate's resist ance to at least one strong feature of the radical programme It must be cohlessed, however, that the satis i'ac. ion expressed in view of the improved posi tion of the Union party in the States proceeds more upon what is yet hoped tor than upon what 3ia already been accomplished. The substitu tion of specific and limited disability tor whole sale dislranchisrmcut is good so tar us It goes. It divests the amendment ol its absurd self-ntuti-lying character. But its chief value consists in the disposition it indicates on the part of the I'nion Senators to act independently of Mr. Ktevcus' dictation, and to pursue a course whicu halj heal party divisions and bridge the chasm wh'ch has of late separated the majority oi Con press irom the I'resident Herein lies "the real f.iulflcance of the decision ot the Senate. What it promises is of more Importance than what it per'orms. And it is with reterence fo furtner and more complete reconciliation und modera tion that the active members of the Union party in the several States begiu to gather the conti nence and courage which are essential to suc cess. Their hope" are predica'ert on the expec tation that the better spirit evinced by the tsei.ate, in dealing with the Constitutional amendment, will be so tar cultivated as to re utoie harmony to the party and to place it be ifore tbe country with an established ru'ht to the appellation of the Union parf y. To a certain cJhsm. no doubt, these considerations may seem unworthy, and therefore inadmissible. The who maintain that a great parly should "be prepared to die rather than abaudon crotchets, which only a fraction ol its members ever' possessed, may object to a course which points to conciliation and compromise as the jneafj ot preventing overwhelming defeat at the polls. But Congress cannot all'ord to ignore popular opinion and to defy the popular uda jnent. It must conciliate or be itself recon ducted. It must meet the prevailing demand lor party unity, based upen concession, asiho precursor of national unity, based upon the Constitution, or exchange a majority of its mem bets for member indifferent to Mr. Ste vens' whip. The lad may not be flattering or pleasant to ntlemen who think that because they ride bobbies they may override everybody and -everything. But that it in a tact any persort who watches the tone of the local pres ana tne movements qi , me tucai politicians. xnubt be prepared to admit. The question re maining to be decided i, whether the b.ipes ot reconciliation! recently excited shall be vcriflpd r irusiraiua; smii upon vne answer to van que' tion yie issues m tne smtes depend. The Frnlan Invasion American Versus Itrittsh Canadian Neutrality Front the Herald, Colonel O'Neill's advanced corps of FMiians, in the absence of artillery anol bis expected re inlorcements, have returacd by way of Buifaia from their Canadian incursion, and surrendered to the United States authorities, Some picirets at Fort Erie, covering the re emharkatlon, are reported as having lallen into the enemy's bauds. This was one of the hazards o! the venture: but this and all other Canadian drawbacks ami diill- puli.ioa tiHvo hi.pn nipre trilles In the WIIV of the Fenians. The one great obstru :tion which has J- bullied them at e.ery point ana aoiemed tnetr plans so tar, has been the vigilant neutrality ol the United S ates civil and military authorities. In this the Government, ha been tendering to England and. Uunaoa good lor evil in- a most remarkable degree.- Cauaoa, tot instance, dur ing our civil war, was the chosen rendezvous of the most diabolical conspirators, assa -sins, rob bers, traitors, and Inceniiiories concerned in our lute Rebellion. Tholr headquarters were at Montreal, and her Majesty'? provinHa'soflleialSj and most Influential sublects generally ay in pi th ized, and aided and abetted or winkod at th 1 intiimous plots aud cutthroat ami incendiary, adventures ol these agents ot the Kebulhou "vn detached service."

Now a Fenian organization in . the United biases, devoted to the liberation of lielnud, undertakes a descent from our borders upon Canada, in view ol a base ol operations lor their grand design. They have tbe sympa thies ol the American people, and the Camidixus have no claim upon us for reciprocities ol ucu t'alitv. But tbe (iovernment, regardless of Knglish aud Canadian pertidy, adhering rigidly and vigilantly to its neutral obligations, Inter pohPs lor tno rescue of Canada from these 1' minus, seizes tuuh arm.', stoibs, and munitions of war, and watches every ci'obsmg against them as zcaloiifcly ns it they were Keb-I guerillas ope rating against New Jcr.-ey. This is American neutrality, and it present a striking contrast to English aud Canadian neutrality. I Had Mr. Seward adopted the late neutral policy ol Lord John IIuhc11, the FenWus ere this would have been in occupation ot Montreal. ahh is, mey nave suown to fengianu inai uer i retention of Ireland, as well as her North , American possessions, depends henceforth upon her good conduct towards the United Stales, j Tne active repressive measures of the Govern- ' ment, meantime, we presume will convince j Ucuerai sweeney tnat more timo aud a more del bcrale and comprehensive organization will be necessary to enablu him to pass our frontiers, and concentrate at nny point over the bord'T witL a foi ce suliicient tor a promi ing lodgment oti tbe other side.

Unity, a place mid a time, are as in cesshry to any great enterprise as 'huan c al and material aid.'' England's difficulty will be Ireland's oppoitunity, aud notaing ehe will serve tbe fiurpoi-e ol Ireland's libeiatiou. That difficulty will home day come, and tnen, if the Iiish aie united, in whatever pari ot the globe tbey may be, they may strike an etlective blow and retsirn to the absolu'e possession of Uieir green island, as surely as the united Jews will borne day remrn aud rebuild tue waste pluces ot Zion. The stranger has desolated Israel and holds it, the once great kingdom of Poland has been blotted from the map of Europe, the old universal Roman empire exists only in history; but Ireland, encircled by the sea, cannot be extinguished short of the extirpa tion of the Irish race. Coalescing upon thegreat idea of "Ireland for the Irish," it will outlive the coal mines of England, but, divided Into clashing tactions, it will continue , a ''Niobe among the nations" until absorbed and wasted away among other nations like the ancient Greeks and Romans. Dissension has been and 1s the weakness ot Ireland. Union is strength. It has carried the tribes ot Judah aud Bc.nainln through the revolutions and persecutions of forty centuries, and tbey are more numerous to-day than when Solomon reigned in all his glory. Tbe Proposed European Congress. From the Daily Xeics. The idea of a Congress of the great powers of Europe to decide upon the points at issue be. tween Prussia and Italy and Austria, seems, according to our European advices of tbo 23d ult., to be taking shape and consistency. France England and Iiussia, it appears, have taken upon themselves theotlice of intermediaries, and huve invited the contending powers to a love itast at Paris, wherein, through the agency of a Congrt-ss, the existing differences may be pu tned up, and eacn party to the dispute may gain something in tbe end, without the alterna tive oi war. Tne ollicial invitations lor the pro posed Congress were despatched to the Austrian, Prussian, und Italian Courts by the "Holy Al liance" ot peacemakers on the 22d ult. The answers to these invitations had not, of course, been received at the time of the departure of the steamer; but it was conddently expected that this new move on the diplomatic board would meet with the approval ol the powers inieresied, and tbaiapeuceiul solution ol the quarrel would result tbeielrom. 'l.he basis ot the agreement to be proposed by the Congress seems to take the shape of certain. eurienaer oi terrirorv, ami concessions ot pro vinces to be made by one to tho other of the thee countrii s at daggers' points. A kind of iriuugular settlement of the dilliculty. whereby what one power shall losf at one end of the triangle w ill be regained to it at the other. Thus, by this geometrical airaneemcut, it is expected tt.at Aubtria will cede Venena to Italy lor a pecuniary consideration, and that in exchange lor a poition of Suc-ia che will abandon llol steiu to Prussia This plan, und appi.rently a nioct excellent one on the face of it, has cer turn little urawtMcks upon it that will probably invre against Its success. Tnus, Austria ha been led iuto her present critical position by reiusiug at tbe beginning 1o acknowledge that either ske or Prussia has any rightful claim to the possession or disposal of the lHicbies. and that Suhleswig and llolstein are but held in trust by the to lor their lawful sovereign; bence sue would and it a ditbcult diplomatic teat to lump troin her former posi tion into the posture proposed lor her by the Congress. Theu, ugaiu, the Austrian pride re volts at the thought of making a case of hurt r and Bale ol VeueUa to Italy; and while she would not object either to the money value therefore, or to the gilt of Silesia if oifered her, she would scarcely accept these at the expense ot llolstein tor tue one, aud ot uer Italian pro vince lor tho other. It may, therefore, be sot down for a eertainly that, unless something nil re practicable be proposed at the coming Con gress, Austria will retire Irom the love-least in anything but a peacetul state of mind, un I that she. and Italy will be at hard blows within a week therealter. Much, undoubtedly, may be done to alter her determination by the intei ceding oowers, incase she should prove relractory. Thus, if tt should be shown, in a delicately diplomatic way, that the callers of the Congress are prepared to en Jorce their propositions for a settlement, it is possible that the Kaiser may be brought to terms, in tnat case, unoer me pressure oi a combined, or nearly combined (for England's ultimate position is a matter of doubt) Europe against him, it would not require a very lar siKhfed vision on his part to discern his whole empire toppling about his ears, exposed, as it would be, to the ambitious and grasping crowned vultures who would be in leaeue against blm. This is the possible alternative that tbe Kaiser must anticipate in case of bis retusal to consider the basis ot settlement which, as is reported, will take th shape in tho Congress that we have given above. While, howevrr, Europe is enjoying a breath ing licit over ths possibilities ot peace, tho work of military preparation goes bravely on. Pains , arc laken by the antagonistic powers to prepare Ihcmeelves tor the deluge should It come. llan os cr, it is said, bns been approached by an Aus tf'tui emissary, with the purpose of opening ne gotiations with that kingdom In reterence to the pasi-tigc ot troops through tbe Hanoverian terri tory. Ceneial Von llctedek, Commander of the Anny of the North, wasonihe eve of leaving anna, with the general staff of his army, for th- scene ot oxpeC'ert operations. Tho nearness ot the Italian troops' to tbe frontiers ot tbe font hern Tyrol has led to the organization of the rifle companies of that province, together with the JxnulMurm, or general levy ot' tho arms b ai ing population. Tbe inhabitants of tho Sile Fiau and oilier Month r Prussian towns are form inv homcguatdn, lor protection ag tinst predatory Inclusions ot Croats, Paudoura, and o' her bodies ot Austrian cavalry. Bo, it will be sceu, what ever expectations may exist as to the-actijnof the Congms, that general ditrut still prevoils among the three parties to the qinrrel, and that they are, each in Us way, taking measures for ofleuse ana delonse. An important assembly of "deputies from tho minor crman States has been held at FrdtiKfort. The tone of the m6cttng was a disapproval of war between Austria and Prussia, and a desire that tbo other members of the Confederation fcbould act together in allthliigsso as to pre-erve tbe unity of tbe (icrman Bund. The resolution enibodying theRe views concludes thus, whic'i gives ah insight into the temper ot the lessor States: ' ' "A solution of the Perioral Constltu tonal quost on can alone prevent lliu recurrence of so danverous a siate of alluirn Tbe Chamler and the Unrnun nation iicneially outfit, thuretore. to require tun ppeedy convocation oi a Gorman I'arliamout on the busis of tbo l. eoloial Liw ot 1849." The "Dimmers" ot the John II row a Army on Ueconstmciion. From the World.' Whether the Southern people are entitled to representation, or shall be hereafter uppn soui. CO id lion precedent, is aqucUion which involves not only the point of an original Federal Union, but the hone6ty aud good faith ot the conquer ing States. The question of the war was the right of secession, which was affirmed by the seceding States as a necessary loeical sequence from all American history and all American ideas. It was denied by the other States, which (ought, as they alleged, to preserve precisely the exact relations winch had existed between all since usMugtuu took tbe naugural oaih. lnhuosiiino they fought and conquered, but the siiinwn ot the battle is not the signum of the p'eacc. ' Tbe President holds that iho ostensible object ot the war shall be the obiect alter the war. So we think, and therefore not only say he is nuhf, but propose io vote that he is rig til. The mass ot , what was tne original Republican party say he is wrong, aud oppose him in every way. He has in bis Cabinet and out of it a set of menwno pro i ess to be his friends, the bum iner portion of the arYny ot John Brown, who not only do not support bim, but who endeavor to drive oil the Democracy Irom supnorting him, by assuming, as bis mouth pieces, to denounce that organization whicn regarded tho liberties ol the actual citizens ot tne United Slates, ihe Constitution, and the Union, as paramount to all chims o) humanity, and as sacred against nil private revelations Irom Heaven. I( the Presi dent did but know i his worst enemies are not the iad cals. He can light them, and flog them, if lie will only have troops on whom he can rely. But his bummer allies he cannot depend upon; when he wants them to malto a line, h will, to his horror and surprise, find tbem mingling fra ternally with the enemy or tiring straggling shots at his own' troops. Emancipation accomplished, the Republican pnity's business was done. Union secured, tbd1 pretended business of the Union party was done. At pre.-ent it Is actually a disunion' party, just ns medicine, after a man is cured, is. a poison, not a benefit. The bummer section arc to-day ust what the Federalists were in 17l7 the party aiming at an unity, not an uuion; at a nation, not the United States. Wc are not-dogmatists enough to say that they are unwise; we are ready t j argue, to vote, and, if the conflict comes, to Bght on that question, but we insist that they shall argue, vote, and tight under their own colors, and with out trick. They may be all right, and we all wrong; but it does not look as if a man could be right who is afraid to be frank to say lust what he wants, and how he proposes to get it. If the Prcsideut wishes to see just how much support he is likely to get from the bummers, let him count their votes in Congress and reaa their utterances in the newspapers. If the President is President of the Uaited Slates, be will very readily know how to treat them; if he is President of a parly which ought to be dead and only exists for mischief, he will know bow to treat nil the rest of the citizens of the Union who understand the objects and detest the hypocrisy of the party w hich claims to ow n him. Tbe Rickets In Resolutions. From the Tribune. Tho shape which an American opinion or emo tion takes is that of a Resolution. First, you have "Whereas"' then "Therefore" then, as ultimate elencher, "Resolved." A great propor tion of our political history is to be found in this form it is the ultimate condensation of convention public pugnacity aud Indignation boiled down social opinion i educed to a brief party promises minimized to a convenient ( form the promissory note , in fact, which in j the future is sometimes taken up, and sometimes lays over. In theory, the concatenation above set forth mu-t be preserved, but in practice, as becomes the declarations of freemen owing alle giance no more to Lmdley Murray than to any other old-fashioned and square-toed tyrant, tue "Whereas" need not, aud very Irequently nas pot, the lemotest connection with the "i'heie fcie." This independence may not seldom be observed m resolutions pa'scu oy engine com panies returning from a friendly visit to otuer eugine companies while ihe knob ot tbe whole, the moral buti-end, bo to speak, of the docu ment, tho "Resolution" itself, is iomcumes ot the mod i-tragghug and heterogeneous variety, & lor instance: "Ilrwleett, That wo sha 1 long cherish our reoop tiou by Aioliawks o. 8 ltieir kindness can uuvur lu lorcoiieu. io Captain Ba.-iiuw, ioi a buun nut supply ot lemonade.

" This conglomeration of good feelim grati tude, and sincere although somewhat awkward politeness, does no harm iu a Heeling advertise ment; but w hen we come to the grief of the City Fathers for the deiith of a Lieuteuaut-fieueral, recorded on soeep-skin, and sent io tue tatnily ot tbe great deceased, we icei tnat ine clumsi ness is likely to be historically discreditable, und to gne future antiquarians a low idea of our civic lunctionaries. Consider, for instance, the "Whereas," aud li"bolutions adopted by our Board ot Aldermen on the death of General Scoit. We cite lor admiration and wonder "Whereas" No. 2: " Whertas, The occasion of tuis sad although not Qnexpeoied event has plunged our whoe ooumry in mourning, the deceased suiuiur, patriot aud nates mau wan In his llteUiue the very pois juitluation of a truly great aud ?oou man. . Idle was closely ideutilfed uav, almost iutepaiably connected with every ureal event, etc." Now, can anything be worse thanjthls ? "Oc casion" tor "occurrence" we can pass over; but will the reader notice tbe awful hiatus between "wholecountrv in mourning" and "the deceased soldier If" Itieducesthe w hole of that part of tbe t "wherew" to this; "Whereas, Ceneral Scott 1s dead; he was a great man while living" and so be va. although this is rather a blun dering way oi asseiting the tact. . But mark that ne was aiso " be very personification or a truiy great and good man" i. e.,"he was the very pcrsoniticauou ot a ners ju! We sav. sometime that a man is the very peraouiueation of valor, or of truth, or of gallantry, but General Scott ws, it seems, the very pcrsouitlcation cither of h tiiself or ol somebody else, (ietjng down, bewever, to "good mnn" we llnd the "whereas" giving out ana ccastpg fo rto duty: ; The 'sen bnce "He waa closely ideptiHed," hast about 6s much conpectfcin with fhe Koran, as Kith what pocf Iromediatf ly beiorc it. iWe do n6t wonder that the Aldermen votd that the resolutions dhotild be framed ihey ccTtalnly noed some artificial mode ot making; them hang - together, lor all of them are as loosely jointed as th-U which we have especially noticed. For Instance: -"whereas," General Scott has l!t behind him "One of the few, the immirta' names, r 1 hat wore not Ijorn to die." therefore, Resolve?!". That our citizens be re quested to close their pl"ccs of buhlne s on the 1st of June! Poor Halleckl How often and oltcn he must bove repented of writing these too-bardly used lines! And no the v have ac tually got hold of tneru in tne Board ot Alder men r We do not nienn to say, however, that the Aldermen are much won-e than other peo ple, at least In the matter ot resolution-monger-Inc. We have n large and curious collodion of amputated "Whereases," and inconsequent "Tberelores," and s roi-detachpd "Keolveds." II people did but know what sitifl of this s rt is sent to ts to print, and whnt weary work and Aire lafior ll Is to put It iuto a tolerably present able scape, they would appreciate the sincerity with which we aver, in tne face ot all the world, that a nominative ci se should have a verb, and that it i-i not lair to leave triendless and deserted adjectivrs to mourn lor their waudoring or ravished nouns. The remedy for aU this would be to employ a competent person to dra' t reso lutions fi r the city, but we do not recommend ihe ciei tion ol an office lor the purpose, simply bi cause we are sure that ic would soon be filled by some anient patriot utterly unable either to lead or to mite.
