It la ccrtainljra remarkable act that the Terj Prince who'was the first in Europe to ad vocate the right of nations to demand, and, if practicable, to establish thoir national unity, hould now be the leading oppenent of the national aspirations in every important ques tion of the kind. Who would put obstaolea in the way of German unity, if Napoleon should withdraw his opposition f Who would have stopped the victorious inarch of Garibaldi, and paved the decayed chair of St. Peter, if the French troops had stayed at home f and who would think of drawing the Bword for the effete power of the Turks, if France should ob serve an absolute neutrality f With regard to Germany, France has for Some months preserved an absolute silence. But In both Italy and Turkey French diplo macy is Just now most actively engaged to thwart, if possible, the inevitable result of national aspirations. Jn the Koman quostion, Napoleon urges With great persistency the holdiDg of a Euro pean Conference, lie has invited to it even the third-rate powers of Europe, which, flat tered by the unusual honor of such'au invita tion, are all expected to accept it. Napoleon maintains the European character of the Roman question, on the ground that every Government which has Roman Catholio sub- cts is concerned in the maintenance, of the dependence of the Iloly Father. Italy Btronelr opposes the Coneress, insisting that the settlement of the Roman question is Wholly an Italian affair, in which foreign nations have no right to intervene. We do sot know yet whether England and Russia, which were reported to be against the holding of the Congress, have withdrawn their oppo sition or not. The Pope will feel anything . but satisfaction at the prospect of sueh a Congress, as he is fully aware that most of the European ' Governments care little about the continuance of the States of the Church. Franoe herself, if the majority of the Conference should desire it, would be willing to urge a further reduction of the temporal possessions of the Holy Father, notwithstand ing all the censures of tle Church threatening those consenting to such schemes. But, on the other hand, France will make the utmost exertions, not from any regard for the Catholic Church, but In her own interest, to gain the ', consent of the Conference to the preservation , of some part of the Papal territory, and thus act again as the leading opponent of Italian i unity. But there need not be much fear of " any important results being achieved by the new plan of Napoleon. The Governments " taking part in the Congress will be willing to 't give their opinion, but hardly a single one will ' assume the responsibility to aid in the enforce ment of any kind of intervention. We know but little about the present inten tions of France with regard to the Eastern complication, and about the alliance which is . said to have been concluded between her and . England and Austria. France, during the ' past year, has several times joined Russia and her allies in urging upon the Porte certain ' concessions. When these were stubbornly de clined, France again followed the course sug gested by her own interest. Russia is coin : monly believed to be determined to use coer- clve measures for securing the rights of the Christian population, while France reverts to ' her traditional policy to prevent the enlarge ment of Russian influence in the East, entirely regardless of the wishes of the majority of the population. The Governments of Austria and '.England are equally desirous of preventing " Russian progress, and equally indifferent a3 to : the sentiments of the people; but while Louis . Napoleon may get the consent of the Legisla ture to any measure he proposes, both Austria and England would find it difficult to get from their Parliaments tlie sanction of any except diplomatic remonstrances. In both questions Franoe pursues an anti democratic and an anti-national course, a course which, the longer it is persisted in, must the more surely destroy the influence of i ranee in Italy and Turkey. Congress and our National Finances. From the N. Y. Herald. In a few days Congress will meet again, and will meet under peculiar circumstances. None of its predecessors ever met under such an - extraordinary state of affairs, both politically and financially, particularly as regards our , national finances. It is not a new Congress, but since its last session terminated a surpris ing change has taken place in publio senti ment. The voice of the people, from one end of the country to the other, proolaims loudly the condemnation of its measures and weak . nesB. The blatant and violent radicals who liave wasted the time" of Congress In spouting about and clamoring for impeachment of the President are themselves impeached by a higher power. They have been tried before the bar of public opinion, and a scathing ver dict .has been pronounced against them. This dominant party was all-powerful; there ' was but the shadow of opposition; it was able at all times not only to silence opposition, but even to carry its measures over the veto of the Prebident by the constitutional two thirds vote. It had no excuse whatever for bad legislation or for not doing its duty to the country. Looking at this fact and at the popular judgment pronounced against this weak and reokless Congress, we are curious to see what will be its conduct on reassembling. In its pride and mortification it may become more reckless still, and defy public opinion. There are examples in history where such violent and revolutionary Jacobins-have set them Belves np above the people. But if they should dare to act so they will only intensify ' the odium with which they are now regarded. -There may be, howevor, a sufficient number of members in both Houses conservative and patrlotio enough to respect the will of the people as expressed at the late elections. We may see men of sagacity, prudenoe, and' fore Bight such men, perhaps, as Senators Slier- i man, Trumbull, or Fesseuden put themaul ves ; In the breach to stem the torrent of radicalism and save the country from theeviU their party baa bronght upon us. The conduct of Con . gress will bt watched with intense Interest . and the people will surely mark those xnml bers who may peraiot in their radical and destructive coutbo. With regard to mere political matters or to , the question of reconstruction, Congress has done as much mischief as it well could do. Much of this mischief is irreparable, at least for tho present. The South, that inaguitlueut and richly productive portion of our country, Las been turned over to negro -domination to the government of semi-barbarians. Little oan now le done to arrest the disaster. It must rnn its course for awhile. The reaction in time will sweep away the obnoxious features of re construction. The day is not far off when the people of the whole North this proud Cau casian white race will demand the emancipa tion of their white brethren in the South from the barbarous rule of the negroes. In the meantime there are other questions of the highest importance looming up and requiring skilful management. Laying aside the question of reconstruction, the one which overshadows all others is that of our national finances. The expenditure of the Federal Government is something like five hundred millions of dollars a year, with the proppect that, under the disorganize 1 statrt of the South and a costly military despotism there, it will soon exceed that. This, together with the burden of State, county, and munici pal debts and extravagant local expenditures, swells the aggregate amount of taxation to a thousand millions. The local government of the city of New York alone costs over twenty millions of dol lars. Reckless extravagance is the curse of all parties, for here we are under Democratic rule; but it is just to say that the stupendous debt and frightful taxation of the Federal Government are the result of radical Republi can misrule. A thousand millions of taxa tion 1 What people ever bore such a weight ? How can we continue to bear it ? We must remember, too, that nearly all this burden falls upon the North. Under the destructive legislation of Congress the South will be less and less able to aid in oarrying this burden. Twenty-five millions of people have to bear a thousand millions of taxation 1 Forty dollars a head for every man, woman, and child I Or for every head of a family from two to three hundred dollars a year I How are the working classes to endure such taxation ? At least a third of all they earn goes directly or indi rectly to Government. No people in the world are taxed anything like this. Even in Great Britain, where they are more heavily taxed than anywhere else, except in this re- Eublic, taxes do not amount to half what we ave to bear. Our people bore this patiently until the war was finished and the Union made secure, but they will certainly not bear it long in time of peace. Yet we see a certain class of politicians and journals, allied with the bondholders and the national bank oligarchy, which would increase the weight of the debt and make it a perpetual burden. They would reduce the currency and thereby reduce the means of the people and the revenue of the Government, so as to add forty per cent, to the wealth of the bondhold ers. If the insane demands of these people for specie payments could be complied with, we could neither pay the debt nor bear the taxation to meet the interest. We should be bound down as securely and perpetually under a stupendous debt as the people of P)ngland are. The first thing Congress should do, then, i3 to reduce the expenditures of Government to the utmost and to make a corresponding re duction in taxation. The system of revenue should be simplified, and the expensive ma chinery now used to collect it abolished. All burdens upon productive industry, as that of the cotton tax, should be removed. Mr. McCulloch should be stopped from curtailing the currency any more; and, if necessary to stimulate production, to reduce the debt, to make money abundant and easy, and thereby to secure a large revenue, an additional amount of legal-tenders might be gradually and prudently issued. But by all means the national bank notes should be withdrawn aud greenbacks issued in their place. By doing this the Government could liquidate at once three hundred millions of interest-bearing bonds and save twenty-five millions a year. As much of the debt as possible should be paid at once, and continued to be paid, while the currenoy is depreciated. By cancelling three hundred millions of the interest-bearing debt by substituting legal tenders for national bank notes, and by using the surplus money in the Treasury, five hun dred millions of the debt would be paid at once. Then, by following the course we have suggested, another five hundred millions might be liquidated ha the course of a few years. Thus, in less than five years a thou- 1 sand millions, or one-half of the Interest-bearing debt, could be paid. All this might be done. too. with reduced taxation, if the finances be properly manaeed and the Govern ment administered eeonomically. Thia is the important work for Congress to Bet about doing. It cannot be ignored or delayed long without p unciner the country into mexinoa- ble difficulties. Let that body, then, drop the negro and attend to the national finances as soon as it reassembles. A Democratic "Path, to Peace." Fi om the N. Y. Times. The World is entitled to credit for the per sistency with which it urges on its party the propriety and expediency of acquiescing la compromise as the basis of national restora tion. We oan only regret that the particular forms of compromise which it has suggested, imperfectly realize the spirit in which they originate. An error committed at the outset invalidates the whole argument.. The World assumes that the results of the elections held this fall are equivalent to a complete r victory for the Democrats. It takes for granted the ability of the Democracy to carry the elections next year; ana on the Hypo thesis that they will elect the next President, and control the House in the next congress, it proposes that the Republicans shall throw ovei board the reconstruction acts, and admit the Southern States on conditions which their opponents may consent to yield. In other words, our contemporary discusses the situa tion under a fii m persuasion that the Demo, crats are already its masters, and, therefore, that the party in power cannot do better than imitate Captain Scott's coon, and come down as though it were already shot. The terms 'of compromise specifically sug gested are in harmony with this general esti mate. In the first instance they amounted to nothing more than an acknowledgment of the civil equality of the negroes all other matters being for the time ignored. This has since been enlarged bo far as to include the esta blishment of qualified negro suffrage after a five years' probation. Oiher constitutional changes are also hiuted at, the precise nature whereof is to be fixed by "a National Confer ence composed of men of moderation and character representing all the various inte rests." This is the latest point at which the World has arrived on the Democratic "path to peace." - , i ' "A conference of this klnd.conHtstlngofsIxiy or elKhly men of omlneut slautfinn, ripe ex: e rlonce, urul peisuHHlve temper, would suooead tn lltidlng sawn Hulullou iI our national di.Il-c-uitle which would lilt the Union out of iie tiouch of puny politlos, and ve eHtabllbh It on ttj only UhhIs whereon it cun Bland that of comiwheiiKlve. all-adjust I np: equity. Any pro pohlilnim wiituli a confureuce so roinooxed hli( uld a2e lu reoommundliifr, would probably be fco lntiUinically fair, so mavked by ooustUe rale and recoitiiuK JubUoh,- that they would cnromttnU a popular support wide enough to put them luto tho Constitution, If that nhould be uewued their fittest, embodiment," Now, we oonceive that the World ia pursu ing an honorable objeot in a very creditable temper, but with a total misapprehension of the facts. The Demoorats are not masters of the situation. It were folly to depreciate the value of their victory in this State, or the sig nificance of their gains in other States; but the atUmpt to magnify these events into a great national triumph is equally absurd. Tli battle of next year remains to be foueht, and at present the odda are overwhelmingly in favor of the Republicans. If they fail, it will be from the neglect of causes which are entirely under their control. They have it in their power to say who shall be Mr. Johnson's suc cessor, and to make the next Congress unmis takably Kepublican in both brauches. liotn objects might be attained within the existing limits of Congressional representation. But they are placed beyond reasonable doubt by the prospect of admitting the greater number, if not all, of the ten States now excluded, with their popular vote to swell the triumph of General Grant, and their Senators aud Kepresentatlves to augment the legislative strength of the Kepublican party. l he assumption which underlies the argu ment of the World is, then, radically unsound. it perverts the import ol facts that exist, and presupposes facts which are not likely to exist. Hence the inutility of all moralizing predicated on the ability of the Democrats to prevent the completion of reconstruction in conformity with the present law. They may lessen its efficacy as a healing measure by ex citing groundless expectations in the minds of the Southern whites, but they cannot defeat or even delay the reorganization which is pro grossing subject to its previsions. The best service which a Democratic journalist can render to the South or the country is to admit the helplessness of his party in the presence of the power of which Congress is but the ex ponent, and to urge compliance with the law as the surest mode of promoting peace and prosperity. Certain it is that the proposed "riationai Conference" can accomplish nothing in regard to the mode of adjusting existing difficulties. That "sixty or eighty men of eminent stand ing" might be brought together from North, and South, we do not deny. Three or four timea that number might be mustered, we dare say, without exhausting the available "moderation and character , of the two great parties. What then f Does anybody believe that its deliberations would stay the action of Congress, arrest the current of public opinion, or in the slightest degree affect the operation of the law? Doea even the World believe that the deliberations of a small body of gen tlemen, acting in their individual capacity, with no pretension to representative autho rity, would produce an abandonment of the Congressional policy? For the .World does not disguise its anticipation that the Confe rence, if held, would recommend the adoption, substantially, of the Democratic doctrine on the Reconstruction question, and that Implies the almost' unconditional admission of the Southern States. It is with this expectation that the suggestion is propounded. , National conferences of an informal, un authorized, and eminently proper character have been tried before with results not very encouraging to those who would thus influence public opinion. The Peace Convention which nut at Washington in 1861 talked wisely, deliberated calmly, and offered recommenda tions at once temperate and fair.- But it ac complished nothing. The Philadelphia Con vention last year inculcates the same lesson. Never was anything more rich in blossom or more barren of Iruit. In both instances, how. ever, tho circumstances were more propitious than those under which the World's Confe rence would now assemble. The sword had not been unsheathed when the Washington Convention defined "the path to peace." The reconstruction policy had not advanced beyond the comparatively mild Constitutional Amend ment, when the l'hiladelphia Convention pre scribed for the Bores of the republio. The case now is altogether different. Primary issues have been determined. Congress has asserted exclusive authority over reconstruo tion, has laid down the conditions by which it shall be regulated, and enjoys an assurance of power to enforce its legislation. Think you that it would surrender its jurisdiction, recede from its requirements, and reverse its action at the bidding of "sixty or eighty men of emi nent standing," convened on the supposition that the Democrats are masters of the field ? Possibly it may be desirable by-and-by to nave a JNational convention, regular In form, ana binding in authority, with the view of re vising the Federal Constitution, and adapting it to the altered circumstances of the country. When that time arrives it will be the duty of an to discard mere party considerations, and to labor honestly for such amendments of the organio law as shall fully cover every exigency growing out f the war, and, while restoring the smooth working of the Government, shall provide adequately for the rights and unity of me ciaies. In the meantime the great duty la to com plete the reconstruction of the touth under the law as it stands, relying upon the good sense of the republicans in Congress to tone down the proceedings of the State Conven tions, and to establish a uniform policy of lorbearanoe and liberality, instead of the pro scription which 19 threatened. if the Demo cratic members choose to aid the Republicans in thus softening the asperities and mitigating the difficulties of reconstruction,' they may partially atone for the mischief they effected in me last congress, .uowever this may De, we cannot doubt that, as matters now stand, the Congressional p'an is the onjy solid "path to peace." The path indicated by the Demo cratio organ is a will-o'-the-wisp, leading through quagmires and ending m disaster. ' Africans. From the N. Y. World. The Republican party oarried through Con gress the Reconstruction act which compels the Southern States to make all male negroes over twenty-one years of age voters. In con formity with this Republican ' plan, negroes have voted for delegates to the Constitutional Conventions, been elected as delegates, and are now sitting in convention. Thia Republi. oan plan waa not partial, but impartial, negro suffrage. It did not discriminate against igno rance and barbarism, but constrained the States, by Congressional force., to make voters of all negroes, whether good or bad, virtuous or vicious, soberor drunken, eduoated or iguo rant, elevated or debased. It went far beyond enfranchisement, which includes the guaran tee of sush a status as Khali secure to Afrioans, equally with all other citizens, the full eu jeyment of all the rights of free persons, such as in New York are given to unnatu ralized citizens, young men under the age of twenty-one years, citizens of other States sojourning here, and negroes not having the requisite property qualifications. It swept in its ample reach all the lazy, licentious, bru talized elements of the black population of the South. It was as if the worst white sou in of London, or the continent, were imported into the North, and in a, day made by Con gressional act voters ia Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. There waa no march of civilization about the Congressional plan; it was an outpouring advance of barbarism; a confession that education ia unnecessary to make a voter in a republio. It was not states manship; it waa mere pot-house partisanship of the lowest type an effort to hold political power by means of a brutal black mob driven to the polls like cattle. If we are asked for evidence of this, the proof is everywhere in the bouth. Now, if this subject were divested of all its partisan relations, no sensible member of the epublican party, conspicuous for his intulli- gence and soundness or judgment on everyday affairs, would approve thia scheme of at once making voters out of the uneducated, unre flecting, thriftless lield-hand Africans of the youth. Such a man sees at once that the project is totally unlike a proposition to edu cate and elevate, if possible, the negroes, and then give to them the elective franchise. There are to-day, in the Loyal League Club in Union pquare, many members who vlndioate the Kepublican contrivance of reconstruction, and yet, on the slighest provocation, will declaim by the hour against the out trage of permitting naturalized Irishmen and Germans to influence by a vote the affairs of the city of New York. These Loyal Leaguera are didactic, argumentative, and verbose about the danger to our free institutions from this assumed white ignorance. They stig matize Irishmen and Germans as casting "the foreign vote." whatever coes worst of all in our city affairs they attribute to what they call the ignorance of this vote. If these Loyal Leaguers are reminded of the Inconsistency of their political action in the matter, they aban don at once all inquiry about the relative in telligence of the two races, and give what seems to them a very logical retort, to the effect that they never can proscribe a man on account of his color. To all suggestions that it is not a matter of color, but of intelligence and fitness to vote, they turn a deaf ear, and bab ble on about "the age of progress" and 1 "the inalienable rights of man." If askod why they do not insist, by Congressional enactment, that red men, Indians, shall vote in the new com munities of the West, they sputter out some thing about "Copperheads," and fall into a tone of ribald abuse. It is for the edification of such advocates of immediate, universal African elevation in the late insurrectionary btates, regardless or pre liminary education, and we copy from the 1 imes ' an extract from a recent letter of its Tennessee correspondent. He alludes first to the doings of the Radical Legislature in respect to passengers on railways, which up to very recently have kept separate cars for Africans, carrying them for three cents per mile, while white people paid hve cents. Ihe Legislature, under Radical influences, passed a law making it a misdemeanor, punishable with fine and imprisonment, for any common carrier to make any discrimination on account of race or color. The railroads were - thereupon con strained to let the Africans go in any car they preferred, and to charge them five instead of three cents a mile. Of the practical result of this "manhood" piece of legislation, the Junes correspondent says: "Now. this eaual rights theory maybe well enough in the Northern Uial.es, where the blocks are few and Intelligent, aud cleanly in their habits; but in the Houth, where they are numerous unci poor, and many of them abso lutely filthy, the practical operations of tnia theory in this particular are uuy.tb.ina but ac ceptable. I Bpeak plainly, for uotblug but plain talk is proper when dealing with these questions. To ride in cm s halt rilled with wtiu- Uerirje. worthies, indolent blacks is not a plea Kant undertaking. To lake a Hleeulne oar and tlud blueks above you aud below and all about you, 1h not tempting. Suoti lean may provuko ridicule BiiUHuicaBin, uunney areuol viHlonary. They are practical tiueHtloug here under exist ing circumstances, and oan only be met lu this way. Iffcuch things are the legitimate result ol impaitial suUinge or unlvermU Biill'rage, we night as well kuow it now as hereafter. I do not know that they are. I do not think it would he, if our legislators wore possessed of ordinary Judgment and discroilon. They are not such results as sensible, intelligent blacks ueMre, but they are results which will cer tainly follow if thiasiprUof innovation is not checked." From thia subject, whioh is one of social in convenience, the correspondent passes to another radical scheme which involves a prac tical destruction of the system of jury trials. Writing of a bill to make jurors of Africans, be says: "The latter bill is now before the Legislature, and will probably pass. The bill is not to admit all blacks, but only such as are qualified voters. It has the same obnoxious political qualifica tions as the Jury law now la foroe a law which has been more misohievous and more corrupt, log than any law ever enaoted. It has degraded the Judicial proceedings of the Htate; It has Oiled the Jury-box with partisans, and has made the trial by Jury In many counties tn East Tennessee a farce. It has provoked the most serious apprehensions, and there is scarcely a lawyer of any practice In this seotlon of 1 he State I care not what his political pro clivities may be who is not thoroughly per suaded that it has done incalculable harm to the interests of litigants. One after another lilt-fee innovations come. There is scaroely a law In any respect political In its nature that lias not been tampered with since the war. The mobt ventrable customs and the moat vital .interests of the people and the dearest rights of the olllzen, however secure by presort pllon or by plighted faith, have been invaded by pas sionate, hasty, and Ill-considered legislation The examples I have given wilt show the spirit -or the present Legislature and the daugers to be apprehended. Kvery careful observer must notice these things. What will oome next?" In the Convention now in session in Ala bama to make a State Constitution is to be seen, in full play, the elevation of uneduoated Africans. A pure blooded African, a planta tion hand, named Strother, ia a member of the Committee on Taxation and Finance ! Another African, Finley, who can scaroely read or write, is a member of the Committee on Education and the School Fund 1 Diggs, another African who, on the registration of members, was compelled to make his mark, being unable to write, ia member of the Com mittee on Amendments to the Constitution I And Alexander, the African who insisted upon crying out "here," when called to vote for one , of two persons by count, is member of the Committee on County and Municipal Organi zation. , A natural culmination of the action of such legislators took place in the Alabama Conven- . tioii on Monday 1 st. The Committee "pn the Elective Franchise was unable to agree. The minority was conservative, the majority radi cat. There were two reports. That of the ma jority proposes sweeping measures of aisfran- chlsement. In the first place, it provide that every male citizen twenty-one' years of age, who thall be a citizen of the United States, or declared his intention of becoming such, who shall have resided in the State six and in the county three months preceding an election, iihall be deemed an elector. This includes all Africans, good or bad, educated (r uneducated. The second section provides for the registration of all persons elected except the following three classes: First, those who during the late rebellion In any way violated the rules of civilized warfare; second, those who have beau convicted of .treason, embezzlement of public funds, mal feasance in office, crime punishable by law with imprisonment in the peuitentiary, or bribery; third, those who, having becu regis tered iu accordance with the provisions cf the Iiecoustruction act of Congress, refuse to vote either for or against the new CoaaUtution when.
