Heforo the meeting of tbe Democratic Na'lonal Convention, there Wa a general uncirtwtmi'liog that Congress would adjourn -alxmt the middle of Jaly, but a change bas come over the h pi tit of their dream. Tn members are auxinu to disperse and look after their political propots, bat tbeir confidence la so hikeu In the stability of tbeir negro reconstruction that they fear to leave Its bedside. They watch over it like anrops in a sick-room. WLen the Chicago Convsntion mat it con gratulated the country, in its platform, on the assured and triuuipliant success of the reoon gtrnction policy. VVe regarded those congra tnlations at the time as hollow and ridiculous, and the flutter of alarm into which the party is now thrown prove? that we did not misjudge. The following despatch to an eveuing paper is one of the many Bjiuptouis of uneasiness and misgiving: Bpcvial Despatch to the Evening Pout, Washington, July 23 A tneellunr of South ern met), lucltiiitnK i.x i if mo nevv members of Coining, wkb Ui l'.tK H from Texts.

A resolution for liiiperdimeut of the Presi dent, the artlcli m to lie li -slU ou his reoeut veto meet-age, Is pending hO'lonntan adjournment 01 the meeting to be held lo-ulnl. A new impeachment of the President, a new patching up of the Reconstruction act, and a prolonged eesstlon of Congress, are deemed Decenary to the salvation ot the political party which bo lately bore itself with, an air of inso lent triamph I Thrir fears are well-founded. Their reconstructed State governments bid fair to "return to plague the inventors." If Congress will adjourn and leave things as they stand, every Southern State can be cariied for the Di-inocratie ticket, and if Congtetis should prevent the counting of the votes, the supetioiity of numbers demonstrated at ,tbe polls will constitute a preponderance of physical strength against which it will be vain to contend. Since our Couvention, the Republicans understand that the Democratic party is thoroughly iu earnest, and i determined to briog this reconstruction bnsiuess to an immediate crisis. No outcry about "revolution" will deter the Democratic party from doing its Whole duty. We. have borne with patience much that we would nut have borne at all, but for the expectation of relief in this Presidential election. The time has no come when a majority of the people of the Whole country will assert their "right to control the Government of the country. If the Republican party are a majority of the Whole country, we will submit; if they are not a majority oithe whole adult male population, they shall submit, or eke "we will kuow the reason why." If they exclude U3 from .the polls, or refuse to count our votes, we shall be none the ltss a majority in consequence of Such exclusion, and being a majority, and Laving the preponderance of physical strength, the Democratic party will not be found so Wanting in manhood as to be ruled by a reck less, usurping minority. The Democratic party ba3 been a majority of the whole people for the last two years, and as we are pretty certain to remain so until November, it may as well be understood that we shall not there after permit the minority to continue their violations of the Constitution. If they refuse to count our votes at the polling places, we have arithmetic enough to count our own sinewy arms. The newest project of Congress is an attempt to prevent our coming to a knowledge of our own numbers, by causing the election to be conducted under a reign of terror. Arms are to be sent to all the States and given out by the radical Oovernors to overawe Democrats and prevent their voting. Senator Hendricks' exposure of the design of this bill is well worth reproducing: Mr. Hendricks, Dem. (rnd.). In reply to the remarks which had been made, hmiJ that he considered this a luoi-t dngrou8 bill, l)eoti9 Kpropoptd to arm one poilllchl PHiiy against another.

Taert fore, he argued that tbeonly purpose of luis distrluu ion of arms before the election w.h io nuke a military force out oi one parly to overawe (he otner, and Uui control the eiccitou. All he asked was a fnlr election, and lhat the people may vole without hindrance, goveined by inelr own judgment. Gen Urunt bad said, in llio last Kunumce of his lelier accrptlbK the nomlnailun for the l'rehldeiicy, ' We want pe-ice. Lo' us have peace." AM parlies should desire this, aud quiet In the country. A fur this expression of ine desire for peace on ihe part of the candidate of the liepubllcan parly, we find here a dre braud a measure calciiltutd lo excite pusslon and produce suite and pt-rhtps bloodshed. With a mtasuie h thieuleuinu and dangerous In Us chaianier, the people would be Hlow to believe that that parly demred pence. He hoped lhat the President would exercise Ihe power he pos sessed lo prevent thla bin from becoming a law. The President owed I his not omy to his consti tutional duly, but lo toe peace nd aulet of the country. He Khoti d defeat a measure ho fall of peril to the country, and which invited a con' Cist between the whites and black". The proposal of the Republicans lo resort to such means of success, shows how little hope Jhey have if they permit a fair election. The Itond (jui'stiou. From the N. Y. Timet. Enough has transpired in the debates on the Funding bill to prove the impolicy of lsaving the bona question in its present Shape. It is no longer a party question, or one in which it is safe to ignore wide differ ences of opinion among those who usually get together. Ihe declarations of ait. cterens in the House are not materially in ad vance of Mr. Morton's in the Senate. Aud the remark of Mr. lioutwell, on Tuesday, that "according to the terms of the act of ltG2, it does not appear beyond all cavil that w in y not pay the bonds in greenback," has its Ov-uuttrpart in llio testimony of Mr. SbmuHn when introducing his scheme some months ngo. Both are signs which it were oriminal to neglect. W may pronounce both Mr. Bout well and Mr. Sherman wrong, but by no dog uiatirni cen we escape the fact that legislators, nhofe desire Is to preserve unsullied the na tional Integrity, confess the possibility of doubts as to the precise extent of the oredi torf' claim. Tl e controversy is not simply unfortunate. It ou k, ht not to have been alloved to arise; nor would it have arisen had Congress fount time tooiier to adjrist linauoial affairs on -a proper basis. Whatever may be -said in regard to the exact import of the contract, there can bs no doubt that when the issue of bonds was authorized, Congress entertained au honest hope that before they reached maturity speoie payment will have Wen resumed. There was no dt-flte In any quarter to redeem the bonds in a depredated currency, and no expectation tl at the peiut would ever ooiue np in this shape for settlement. Nor did anything ooour to necessitate its consideration. The time wl en it will become a necessity is several years hence; and under ordinary circumstances the pi ndeiit course would have been to leave the question of paper or gold to be answered at the maturity of the bonds. Ere then, we may leasonably suppose, the dlsappearauce of all difference In value between currency and coin would obviate everything like the preseut difpnle. But, wisely or unwisely, the question has bf en raided, aud in one way or auother must be met. How? is the query which Congress is trying to answer with au indifferent pros pect of snccess. The method origiually sng gesh d was the passBge of a resolution affirm ing the obligation to pay the Five-twenties in gold. But the carrying of such a resolution if clearly impossible. We doubt whether the Skiiate would adopt it, aud the House we are sure would not. Equally certain is it that any proposal to increase the amount of green backs, with the view of paying off the debt, would fall. For this, at least, let ns be thank ful. The only apparently available method is that of fuuding; aud, for many reasons, we trust that the two Houses will not allow the opportunity to go over without an earnest effort to agree upon some basis that s'aall re move the whole question fioui the arena of contention. Whatever popular fueling ex'sts on the sub ject mpy be ttact-d to impatience uuder op pressive taxation. The ontcry for taxation of the bonds is undoubted iy attributable to this circumstance; and so, tdio, to a conside rable extent, is th-.i clamor for paymeut in greenbacks. By issuing bonds at live or four per cent, interest, according to duration, a larger saving may be etiVeted than is attain able by any other measure, while by making the new bonds tpeciiically payable in coin, an inducement is offered which prudent holders of the present bonds should not long neglect. A strong effort on the part of both House and Set ate to reach some ground of agreement is, then, desirable, as well to lighten the bur dens of the tax-payers as to close permanently a contest which vitally affects the publio credit. It is possible thus to reduce the expenditure on account of interest not less than one-li th or even one third say, on au average, one-fourth of the present amount. No other available plan of retrenchment com pares with this in ease or efficiency. Something is due, moreover, to the exigen cies of the public credit. Just now, two seri ous dangers menace the country. One is the possible creation of diluculty iu the Southern States by an attempt on the part of the Presi dent to carry out the Blair doctrine. The other is the development of prevailing dis trust in foriuB productive of fiuauolal disaster. The former of these contingencies seems to be realized at Washington, and Congress will scarcely separate until it has made adequate provision against anything which Mr. John son, with the help of the Democracy, may at tempt. The financial exigency Is, however, little less urgent, and it behooves Congress to strengthen publio confidence by adjusting the bond question in a manner mutually advan tageous to the country and its creditors. Nothing would help repudiation half so much as a panic arising from the tears of foreign bondholders, and the consequent jump in the gold mar bet. And it is the duty of Congress to use tie means at its command to prevent a calamity seoond only to the success of the Johnson-Blair programme. The country can not affwrd to keep the bond question open. Tlio Ucfiisant Senators. From the N. Y. Tribune. The New York Times is not pleased with the Inbune for what it calls our attacks upon Senators who voted against impeachment. We do not desire to attack any Senator for his vote upon impeachment. It the Times would read the Tribune carefully it would hud that our whole aim hits been to see that thMe Senators eceived ample justice. They did President Johnson a great service, and iu the interest of fair play we demaud that the Presi dent shall pay his debts, and that the Senate shall help him to do bo by eonhrming his nomi nations. Thus we have done all we could to se cure to the father-in-law of one of the Senators the place of Commissioner of Patents, aud we heartily join with the 'limes in deuouuoing the eliort to prevent bis appointment as "par tisan malignity." JVe supported the nomi nation of Mr. Evarts, we were pained beyond expression to And Mr. Staubery rejected, and we have supported Mr. Nelson for every place in the gift ot the Government, from the liover norship of Alaska to the Secretaryship of State. We luriher give notice that we ghall insist that every efticer whose name President Johnson rends in to oblige any of these Senators or their families shall be promptly conformed. We were proud to notice that, notwithstanding these Senators had ceased all personal relations with l'rtsident Johnson because of his attacks upon the Constitution, immediately upon the failure of impeachment they renewed the inti macy, and made themselves agreeable at the W hite House. We looked upon this as au evidence of Larmony, and as au indication that If the President was slow to fulfil his part of the bargain, they would not be slow to ho'd him t it. Far be it from us to attack these gentlemen, or to say one word to their discomfort. But we trust the linns will ad monish them to be as moderate as we are. It is not long since Mr. Fcssenden wrote a letter full of bitter invective, characterizing the Re publican press as "unscrupulous, familiar with detraction, believers in neither publio nor pri vate virtue, or, if believers, considering b3th as out ol place iu politics." Mr. Trumbull also tave us a letter filled with mysterious in sinuations aud threats. The speech of Mr. Ross was in the same vein. Mr. Fowler de nounced General Butler and General Logan; and Mr. Henderson, not long since, lu secret tension of the Senate, assailed General Butler in a speech which we have not yet heard that he intends to deliver in au open session of that body. The difficulty, therefore, is not with the Tribune, but with the Senators themselves. They invite abuse by indulging in it. .We are willing to let them alone, to give them all the credit they deserve, to honor them for their Roman virtue, and to Bee that Andy Johnaou makes all the appointments they demand. What more cau we do f We certainly cannot join with the Tin ts In saying that "Tbt-y have Uttaorte J, In the grandest mauner ever known in America, their ppronal Inde pendence, the Independence of the (Senate, the rhciita of couHclence and private Judgment, and their own honor. Forever distinguished In the most honorable way among Keruilco (se nator will bp l he nimpR or Trumbull. Kessen- 'en, K'ikh. Henderson, OrlineR, Fowler, aud Van W Inkle." For us to say this will be to reflect upon such Senators as Sumner, Morgan, Conkling, Sheiuan, Morton, Cameron, Anthony, Sprs'gne, etc, all of whom are distinguished In an honorable way among Kepublicau Sena tors. The Seven Senators are all great men, honorable men, conscientious men. But then they d i not embrace all the honor, grandeur, and conscience of the Senate; and it is beoause we hesitate to say this that the Times is dis satisfied. IMhI Anxiety nml Fulrlot Fidelity. From the y, Y. Commercial Advertiser, We cannot too highly commend the anxiety of ex-Rebel officers and soldiers to save the country. To be sure, ouly seven years ago hundreds of them abandoned their allegiance to the Union, violated their military oaths, forsook the Government which had fostered them, and bore arms against it. There is a physiological theory,'that every seven years tLe entire human structure changes an I is made over. If this be so, the men who bioke faith in 1801, are not the men who now make these frantic appeals. They bear the same names and look as erst they did, barring the ravagesjof time, but there is no particle of llesh, or bone, or blood in them, which was there in IS 01. Perhaps they hope, by this metamor phosis, to excuse themselves, aud to claim non-identity with the past. One of these "Union savers" is Ganeral Buckner, who was induced to "git up an 1 git" from Fort Donelson when Grant appeared theie one fine day in ISO'2, and now this fugi tive, coming North, finds Grant again arrayed against him. So he goes into the Democrats Convention, and declares that he is in har mony "with every brave soldier in the effort to rescue the Constitution from indignity or violation." And the members of the Couven tion, who have never forgiven Uraut for chatirg Buckner from his standpoint of hos tility to the Constitution, applauded the lat tei's speech, aud welcomed him back to the rai-ks from which he had beeu temporarily separated. The Democrats, however, are not the only persons who have ' their say" in this matter. There are returned Union soldiers who demand a heaiirg, and they long since set their seal of condtmnatiou, not only upon Rebels iu the field, but upon the Pendletous aud Seymours, and all their kith aud kio, who remained iu the rear, and who either li roily opposed the war for the Union or iuidiouoly endeavored to sap the slrtngih of the forces at rave J in be half of tLe Government. Once vpon a time, during the war, the Indiana s diers road - an a Idress iu which they expressed their tentiiu-nis upon the situation. Among other things, they said: We i xpect to come h -me mm a ley.

This is the sentiment which actuates nine tenths of all the "boys in blue," and they will keep their word. Tney have good memories, ' and they will mete out to those in front or rear, "who sought to defeat thein' the retri bution that is appropriate to such a monstrous crime. Let the Democracy summon the Rebel chief tains to their platforms to sutaiu the cause of Seymour and Blair; let them name for the highest positions in their confidence the men who looked listlessly on while rebellion stalked over the land, or who gave aid aud comfort to secession, and the "boys in blue" will be on hand to meet them and to overwhelm them at the polls. rresh'ciit Johnson and Tammany Hall. Pi om the r. Herald. If ever without a party at his back there was a happy man in the White House it was John Ty lei ; if there has ever beeu a man in the White House who has unnecessarily and profitlessly kept himself in hot water in search of a party, it is Andrew Johnson. From his first message to Congress in December, 18t!5, down to this day he has thus kept himself in Lot water. But there was a method in his madness and an object in his con Hie t with Congress from the beginning, which, though a long time a mystery to many inquiring minds, is at length as completely solved as the problems of the sources and the annual oveinow of the Nile. We have only to as sume that from the date of his rupture with "old Thad. Stevens" Mr. Johnson began to work for the Democratic nomination of lSo'8, in oider to get a perfect solution of his hereio and persistent struggle tor State rights aud the Constitution. His first positive and unqualified movement in this direction was in the Philadelphia Johuton conservative experimental national Convention of August, lSu'ti (see Mr. Ray mond's speech), and that was a failure. His next adventure, a month later, was in that famous pilgrinictge to the tomb of Douglas, "swinging louud the circle," and that was a failure; for in the State elections which fol lowed "my poiioy" aghiust the fourteenth amendment policy of Congress was voted down lrom Maine to California. Iu 1607, iu consequence of the departure of Congress from said fourteenth ameuoment and the adoption of the military and universal negro Bull rage policy of Southern reconstruction, a popular reaction set in against the Kepublicau party fiom Connecticut to the Pacific, and Mr. Johnson rejoiced greatly thereat in his mes sages to Congiets. He was getting to the windward of his enemies. In 1808, unani mously sustained by the Democracy in Con gress and throughout the country against the radicals and in the matter of impeachment, he Lad some ground lor the impression, with his acquittal, that the Democrats, in casting about for their most available candidate, would be inevitably drawn, as their ouly alternative, to Andrew Johnson, the man who had done more to bring them out of the Dismal Swamp aud to put them on their legs again than all their. party leaders and managers put together. Party conventions, nowever, iiKe repuoiies, are ungrateful. The recent proceedings iu Tammany Hall have thoroughly convinced Mr. Johnson that this is true. The shock, how ever, thus sustained, instead of diverting his Tr.lnrl in ilia rtnuKolationa of religion or nhl- losopby, Beenia to have awakened in the Pre- Bideut something ei inetnreiui wrmu oi mug Theodoins. lis will trifle no longer with pre tended friends, but will slay them right and left. A ceitain letter from Washington in yesterday's Herald upon the subject shows that he Las no more fish to fry in Tammany Hall, and that he is no longer in the mood to turn the crindstone to eriud the axes and toin&Lanks of the Tammany sachems. It ap pears, in short, that Mr. Johnson has not yet made up his miud whether to take a hand in this Presidential ooulliot or to staua aioor, neutral spectator, like the Tennessee hunter in the deadly struggle between Lis wife and the bear. The Demooratio politicians, it further appear, are becoming uneasy at this attltud of Achilles tn Lis tent. They waut him to come out. They had employed several a lrolt peaennakers to bring him on, but all to no purpose, when, as the story goe3, the anxious Sam. Tilden, of New York, felt it necessary to come to the rescue; that he accordingly des patched to Washington, by the owl train, the disoreet and trusty John D. Van Buren ( name which would gratefully recall that of the lamented John Van Bureu) to have a talk with Mr. Jobn.-on. Colonel Van Buren in due time appeared atthe White Honse, and, hav ing cleared the way, fraukly stated that his object was "to discover what aid the President would give to the Democratic party to secure the State of New York." This was a posei ; but what was the Presi dent's answer f According to oar correspond ent in the premises Mr. Johnson replied: Colonel Van Bnren, some time ago Governor Sejmour declared that the very best thing that conld happen for the country wou'd be the removal of the President by Congress. I do not forget that, sir; and, believe me now, sir, that 1 have no desire to be found flying at the tail of Governor Seymour's kite. Tu the Democracy fit New Yoik I owe nothing. They have been controlled by a newspaper clique, which have never been friendly to me, and therefore I can Eee no rea?ou why I should go out of my way to ashist them." Now, assuming this report to be substan tially true (and we have no reason to doubt it), there is a rupture Injtween the President and Tammany Hall as complete as that which bioke np the old political firm of Seward, Weed, aud Greeley. The newspaper clique re ferred to by Mr. Johnson have done the busi ness. They have beeu using him only to betray iim; they have beeu playiug upon his confidence and credulity, and he Las found it out. Not a voice from New York in the De mocratic Convention, in alt those twenty-two lallotings, pronounced the name of Andrew Johnson. That was enough. What fuither interest has Mr. Johnson in the New York 1 emocracy ? Can any one tell f We see, iu deed, that his contempt for these party nomi nating conventions, siuce these unexpeoted proceedings at Tammany Hall, is such that he proposes to amend the Federal Constitution in older to head off these assemblages of juggling politicians heieaf er, and to give.the ptople a chance in behalf of their favorites". To Bum up the whole case, Mr. Johnson, with heavier odds against him, has played the rule for another teJin of Tyler aud Fillmore, and, like them, be has failed in it. The best that he can now do is to imitate the sottui philohophy of Tjler in the resolution to take the woi Id easy aud the cares Ot State, to let the politicians help themselves, and to devote his leisure hours to some useful instructions on all such ungrateful deceivers and jugglers as thofe of Tammany IIaII for the benetit-of the rising generation. Our Onnaii Voters. From the If. Y. Cumn.ercidl Advertiser. The Znutsville (Jermania repudiates the Tammtnv nominations and platlorm, aud de clares that they were "only the work of a wide and bioud-spun secret political clique." They were not, it declares, "Ihe expression of the Demociacy, but the work of August Bdlmont, ol New Yoik." It adds: "lie pn.j.le excecied ihlh Convent Ion to form a renewed, newiy-made, vigorous Democracy, onuer wuote wing uprijui uemnciais ami mo derute Kt publicaiiH could !iBso:iat, aud which would ret aside ihe old wire-pullers of the pnity, but how were ihey cheated.

"Hr.ch nets as these certainly are grpatly ap plhhdtd by Kebels, but received with great lu digi alien on the pari of War Democrats, woo, lli.dlriK themselves deceived, will again tear Uinumives loose from the party enacting ihf ni." Ihe Germania then proceeds to ask, "can patriots stand it with calm blood, to be thus humbugged by the politicians, and, like the greenhorns, say to this political finesse, "Yea and amen ?" The above undoubtedly gives expression to the views entertained by Germans all over this country. The liberty-loving ideas and views which they brought with them from the fatherland have naturally oarried them into the Republican party, and if, through local causes or legislation, they have been alienated and strayed into the Demooratio fold, they will now return. The same patriotic Teutons who followed Lyon and Blair with such enthusiasm to the field, aud saved Missouri, will now, with tqual unanimity, repudiate at the polls the apostacy and recreancy of the latter. It is giatilying to note the Larmony and en thusiasm for Giknt now prevailing among the Germans ot this city and State, and the return of those who, through sumptuary legislation and 'Jnbune fanaticism and abuse, have been temporal ily alienated from us. Dr. Frederick Srhultz, President of the Grant and Colfax Club of New York city and county is about to make a tour through the State, with a view to bring Ihe oigam.ation into close connec tion with the Gel man Republicans, and of all the cities and towns. Oar republican friends should everywhere extend a warm reo-ptlon to him, and co-operate with hi'.u iu the good cause vihicL he is aboi4 to undertake. All that is required is harmony, zeal, and work, to overcome the fifty thousaud Democratic majority under which the Empire State now staggers, and place her once more at the Lead of the Republican column.
