W hear of compromise to be suggested by
the President. It Is rumored that lie Is pre
pared to adopt Mr. Greeley's plan, universal
amnesty, and universal or impartial sotfracre.
Tbe Deroociatic pBrty, it Is said, and the South
era Rebels also accept this. We may be obliged
to inbuilt to it nof, since t re anon in the White
House and "practical statesmanship (?) in the
capital have lot us the golden opportunity of
Hay, 1805. Such terms are a preventive of
future rebellions; the precedent thus set, that
men may rebel nt Richmond, starve and torture
Ht Andersonvllle, play the brute ut Fort Pillow,
riot and murder at Memphis and New Orleans,
and still laugh at law and justice.
but with a traitor In the Presidential chair,
with the dominant party all at sea, without
chart or pilot, its officers having shut them
selves up In the cabin, stuffed their ears with
cotton, and covered their eye sevenfold for fear
of tbe lightning and the noise; with timid non
combatants for editors ot our leading journals
every .Republican tort '"covered constantly with
Have of armistice" what better could we
expect r
e only enter our protest that no snch plan
williestore peace to the South, no such plan
will give room lor even the commencement of
real reconstruction. Accept such a plan and
leave the Soutu to carry it out, and we may look
to see her, lor 9onie years to come, repeating
the bloody, bankrupt, aimless, and barren an
archy of Mexico. No State charier of political
right to the negro will ever secure dim the
efficient and suD-Uotial exercise ot them. All
grant of nehte to hlui by the bigoted, besotted,
anuered. and revengeful white men ot the South,
will lack an "Executive principle," a9 Burke
and Canning long ago warned us.
What the South needs is peace, aud a cordial
welcome of Northern brains, capital, and enter
prise. Without this, reconstruction cannot com
mence. In order to have this, the antipathies
between her classes must be kept down by the
strong arm of tbe United States; her old leaders,
poisoned and poisoning; all others, must b
silenced and curbed: and her streets made rale
for any man, however hated, who onus's mind,
money, schools, and energy with him.
Give the negro his political rights, and inau
gurate this suite of thinus, and in ten years the
.South will become, like the Wet, the counter
part, with the healthy dill'erences, of the North
east the cradle and true mould ot the nation.
At present, the country population of the
South id in a hopeful state of mind uud leelina,
easily moulded and led, because always accus
tomed to be led. The cities and old political
hacks, resuscitated by their rotten comrade in
the White House, are lull of mischief. The real
leaders of the South, its large property holders
and educated men, except a tew Gascons like
Wade Hampton, realize tueir situation. Could
the Government nold the South quiet while real
reconduction commenced, ther-e men would
in three years be its warmest friends. They
looked on slavery as an investment, not ai a
political hobby, and now that is ended, seek
to thiow otf those "old men of the sea," Pol
lard, Pryor, and the rest, in order to im
prove, accumulate, amass and enjoy. If true
statesmanship could i.ave managed this crisis,
all power in the rebellious territories would
have been intrusted to loyal hands, black and
White, and then the Aikens, Munroe, Polbirds,
and Wade Hamptons would have been protected
by Civil Rights bills and Puteaus from any pos
sible misuse of thi exclusive power on the part
ot our white aud black allies. lur as that op- ;
portuoity was lost, we must protect the negro
for two or three years, as he rises luto his place,
and then States may be saiely formed, and most
of ihe powers tormcrly conceded to State
overeienty mav be in'ru-ted to it again. The
war has tauubt'us that the regulation of citizen
ship, its civil and political richts. oneht always
to be retained by the Federal Government.
Our claim is that Congress shall wholly iuuore
the military boards and committee- ot pardoned
Rebels which call themselves "States." Let uo
Executive sanction induce Congress to recog
nize such usurpations. It is not yet time to
authorize those Territories to form State Gov
ernments. Secondly. Wheuever any bargain is made, and
whatever its terms, let it be guaranteed by the
United States. Let the political equality and
right of each citizen be secured by the Federal
Constitution. The South, when she could no
violently rob, has always cheated her victim.
Tbe Missouri Compromise was evaded by smug
ling into that State two or three counties north
ot the forbidden line, years before it was openly
set aside by unblusniug fraud. So will any ar
rangemeuti made by States for the negro be
evaded or annulled.
"Punic faith" is pure gold, a spotless Abliel.
compared with Southern trickery, iu all that
rela'es to the negro and the nation.
"Do jou doubt my word r" said a Southern
"Bonibastes Furioso," in a New York Court seve
ral years ago, to an Abolitionist who demanded
his bond, and not his promise, to produce there
again an alleged slave.
"I know you steal, and see no reason why
you should not also lie," was the quiet reply;
which embodies volumes of wisdom tor this
crni.-. Let the nation heed it.

Federal street swindle has just transpired.

the School Board on Saturday lost, and then
suddenly skedaddled to parts unknown, leaving
behind him forged paper to the amount of

with one ol tbe rJiet families of this city, and

The Five-Twenty Itondi to be Redeemed
1 u Coin.
The following correspondence, from the Euro
pean circular of L. P. Morton t Co., is im
portant as showing the policy of the Govern
ment relative to the payment of the principal
of the Five twenty bonds in coin, aud will
tend to dissipate the doubts upon this question
entertained in some quarters:
New York. November The Hon. Hugh
McCulloch, Secretary of the Treasury, Washing
ton, D. C Dear Sir: We have good reason for
believing that an Impression prevails very gene
rally in London, and to some extent in Paris
and Germany also, that the United States Gov
ernment will avail itsell of the option of paying
the Five-twenty bonds of 1MJ2 next year, and
that the liquidation will b made in currency.
This Idea keeps the bonds much below the
price at which they would sell were it under
stood that the Government regards itself as
bound to pay them in gold. Should you deem
it proper to give an expression of your views as
to the kind in which the principal of the bonds
is payable, ot which we could make use through
our European circular, we have no doubt the
opinion would bo of much intereit to foreign
investors in our funds. We are, dear sir, vour
obedient servants, L. P. Morton A Co.
Tkeasprt PRrABTMBNT, November 15. Oen
tomen: Vour lavor of tbe 13tn instant is
received. I regard, as did also my predecessors,
all bonds ol the United States as payable in oom.
The bonds that have matured Mnce the suspen
sion of specie payments have been so pin 1, and
1 have no dwhl that the same will be true with all
other. This being, k I understand it to be, tbe
ei-tablished policy of the Government, the Five
twenty bonds of 18rt2 will either be called in at
the expiration of live years from their date and
paid in cow, or be permitted to run until tbe
Government is prepared to pay them in coin. I
ain; very truly yours,
, t t S00.n m."u"-ocb:, Secretary.

General Sherman's Mission.
Washington, November 21. The ostensible
oblect ot General Sherman's mission to Mexico
is to be present at the election of a PjeHident
and Congress, which is to be held directly after
the French evacuation is consummated, it in
expected that the newly elected Liberal Gov
ernment will then call upon this Government
for military support, and the presence of the
Lieuteiiant-Geueral has especial reference to
this contingency. This subject will be fully
presented in the forthcoming annual message
of the President, which is now in course of
preparation, while It is denied by the Admin
istration that this movement, taken without
cousoHatton with the French representative
here, Is intended to embroil ns with that power,
it is universally aomitted in diplomatic circles
that there is seiiou dancer tliat such may be
the result, unless the conduct of Messrs. Sber
man and CumptieH is exceedingly prudent. The
wish that the affair muy end in a foreign war is
openly e.i pre ed by the more violent Democrats,

Investigation of the Cotton Kranda-Par
tie High In Authority Iniearhed.
The Retrench rant Com oilttcc, which is now
holding its sessions in this city, has been busily
encaged Investigating the cotton frauds. The
Investigation has the effect of Implicating parties
occupying high and Influential positions under
the Government with thee frauds. Tne Commit
tee has made some astonishing developments in
this regard. A great deal of fia id, more than at
first snpposed, has been practised upon the Gov
ernment and citizens of the Sonth by tho cotton
agents. It appears that these agents were In
the habit of confiscating large quantities of cot
ton In the name of the Government, and after it
had remained in their hands for a short time
they would turn it over to an out-Ide party, who
sold it and divided .hc pioceeds with the arents.
Another game which wos reorted to extensively
by these men was to release the cotton upon the
payment of a handsome bonus. The Committee
will continue tnelr Investigation of this matter
several days. Large numbers of witnesses have
been csllcd here from different sections of the
country to testify In relation to these frauds.
The Committee will meet again to-morrow.
The Impeachment of the President.
We have a report here that prominent politi
cians had a meeting In Philadelphia on the 20th

divide China between theui, quite it possiole
event, but one-third of muukiud will live oat
