Sub sequently your correspondent called upon him and ascertained the fact that he does not intend to discuss the situa tion with Chamberlain in any manner. He says that his business here is purely with the President, and that it does not avolfe any discussion of his title to the lfSoe which he holds with Chamberlain et anybody else. , The interview with the President to d- y was almply a discussion of the so a~l and political condition of South Carollna and the South generally, in Cluding a survey of the present condi taen and future prospects of the negro r: e. The most noticeable feature of m te interview was that the President conducted his part of the conversation na such a manner as to indicate that he regarded Hampton as Governor of the State, and all his remarks as to the fu ture of the State and of the negro pop ulation were based upon the assumption or implication that Hampton would be G overnor.

It this is intended as a pub. lioation of the full understanding known as the "agreement or Feobruary," it is decidedly too thin.

To the 'Presldeut: Sir -In compliance with your invita tion, I am here for the purpose of unit ing my efforts with yours to the end of comnposing tihe political differences which now utnhapplily distract the pco pie of South Carolina. I beg you to be leve that my anxiety to bring about the Iermanent paclillation of that Statte- a pacilleation in which the rights of all shall he safe and the interests of all shall be protected-ls as sincere as I feelaeaurefad i ynur own for the aecom plishment of the same end. The posi tion for years past in reference to the political rights of colored citizens, and my solemn pledges, given during the late canvass in South Carolina, that under my administration all their rights should be absolutely secure, should fur nish a sufficient guarantee of my sin cerity on these points, which appear to be the subject of special anxiety. I have the honor to ask at what hour it will suit your pleasure to receive me. I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedi ent servant, WADE HAMPTON, Governor of South Carolina. The President returned an immediate answer by Col. Rodgers, his Private Secretary. At 1 a. m. Gov. Hampton. Senator Gordon and Attorney Geaeral Conner called on the President and at 2 p. m. the party lunched. The conference lasted for a long time, the President, Hampton, Gordon and Conner only being present. A delegation from Baltimore is here to invite Hampton to visit that city.

'rill ()M3I S INSION. An Or4d r WhIhlh Nt~indn Unrevok"d and iUnxýserate d. Fromt a private letter from (ion. It. I. (libson, just received by us from Waush ington, we extract the following Inter esting ILaHssltgOs relating to tihe former order or (len. (Iraut to remove the troops, and the vieows of Mr. Hayes In constituting his n ysterious commission. After referring to a visit to President (lrant during the last days of his ad ministration, (;en. (libson continues: I felt it to be, my liduty to tell Prosl dent Grant frankly that the attempt to overthrow the goverinment of the peo phe In Louisiana by the ntilitary forces fd' the UTnion awl to install the recent United Htates Marshal, Mr. Packard, would lead to bloodshed and the most deplorable conselquenees. lie acquitted me at once of attempting anything like a menace, and replied that, he had made up his mind that the lday was past when State govornnml.,tts could be upheld by Federal bayonets, and that he had do terninod that the proper place for the troops was thie barracks and not the streets and Stateo-ouse in New Orleans. He thereupon is00(ed instructions which were intended to rer0ovo the troops to their proper quarters, and when in formed that they diid not appear to be understooid, observed that he had never in his life made an order more explicit. 1ies termi expired the day after and that order stantds unrevoked aind unexecuted. It is due to President Hayes to say that at our first interview before his in auguration, he intimatcl hlis intention to send a commission to New Orleans, but it is also due to him and to others as well as myself to say that we were led to believe, after subsequent conver sations, that he had abandoned the plan of a commission. When, there fore, informed of his determination, I expressed my 'surprise and regret and my inability to convey to him the deep disappointment the people of Louisiana would experience at what they would regard as a sudden departure from the policy of his inaugural. The President declares that he in tends to adhere to his inaugural, and that the commission will be so consti tuted as to carry out the policy therein announced. In the face of these as surances I cannot doubt the patriotic purposes of the President, and hope the members of the commission-distin guished citizens of other States-may be treated with consideration, courtesy and hospitality. The President understands that no commission can pull down or set up a State government, nor compel any re linquishment of right, nor relieve him of his responsibility, nor conceal from the people of the Union the true issue in Louisiana, nor justify any govern mental action in violation of the con stitution. He very well understands that if he had a secret purpose to vio late any public pledge he has made, and intended the commission merely as a pretext or a Ulind, the attempted dis guise would only add to the disappoint ment and resentment with which the people in all pa:rts of the Union would regard such conduct. Even the pres ence of an ex-Confederate in his Cabi net would be regarded as part of a de liberate plan to cajole and deceive the very people whose confidence the ap pointment was intended to secure, and the distinguished gentleman from Ten nessee would be looked upon as a mere placeman and lackey, if indeed he could be induced to retain his port folio. But I cannot believe for one moment that the solemn declarations of the President were made only to be repu diated, or that the distinguished states men of his Cabinet would be parties to such a stupendous transaction. They know that the Lower House of Representatves would nevýrvoteas 4do sliana to the remorseless despotism of alien adventurers. The desire for a commission springs from utter mnisapprehension of the state of facts in Louislana. It is widely cir culated and generally believed that there are dual governments In that Htatoe. This is a popular but funda. mental error. There is but one govern ment in the Htate of Lousleana; com plete in all its branches, the executive legislative and Judicial and in full and peaceful operation, with (iov. Nicholls at its head, just as the government of the 4tate of Now York, with (boy. Rob inson at its head. Laws are pansed by the (eoneral Aseombly and duly promulgated. 'the courts are open from the lowest to the hIghest, and every day deorces Involv ing the lives, iproperty and rights of the people are oeforced. To this govern rentt ti peoleopl cihoerfully pay taxes and yield obtdlience. ThEy know no ,tlher; they coo no other they hear of no other in their daily walfts. ow then canlI it aI tld that ther are dtiual gov ernnments? Who repromont O the other governrrontl?

Ilamp ton's filends in this city are of the opln !on that hoe will reach here by Tuesday or Wednesday next. They have no idea that he will come here to engage in any contest or debate before the President , in relation to his title to the executive 4 oflice of South Carolina, but they think that he can properly respond to a re quest of the President to confer with him in respect to questions involving , public policy and the peace of the State. Senator Butler was informed by a I Cabinet minister, before he left, that the otbject in hnaving (en. HamJ p ton here was merely formal. The impres sion prevails that Hampton's visit will be very brief not lasting beyond a sin gle day. There is no reason to appre hend that he cannot take care of the honor of his State and himself in any interview he may have with the Presi dent. His authority is so well estab lished and fortified by judicial decisions that it will not be possible even for Hayes to lend the army much longer to the support of Chamberlain's preten sions. Kellogg gives an account of an inter view with Senator Morton,in which Mor ton told him that he, Edmunds, and Mc Millan, members of the Committee on Privileges and Elections, had agreed to report in favor of seating Senator Eustis at the next session, upon the ground that the Senate having decided that Pinchback was not legally elected Sen ator, there was a vacancy, and that Eustis having been elected by the Wheeler Legislature, the legality of which had never been disputed, he (Eustis) was necessarily the Senator for the unexpired term of Plnchback. THE NIEXT OUSE. Clerk Adams Will Seat Mr. Patterson, of Colorado. [Sp c al to Cincinnati CcmmerciaL] WAHIS3NTON, March 26.- Clerk Adams has decided to place the name of Pat terson, vemocrat, of Colorado, on the rolls. At the October election Belford was elected by the Republicans for both the unexpired term of the Forty-fourth and the full term of the Forty-fifth Congresses. In November some of the Democrats of the State voted for Pat terson for the Forty-fifth Congress, while the Republicans did not vote at all, holding that Belford was elected in October. Adams will seat Patterson, on the ground that by a law of Congress the Representatives are to be elected in November of the year preceding that in which the Congress is to assemble.

Other, howeve, whr i pare bee a w il the Iavln armpalign, thought It well enough that, he shouid go.

He is really a Mor monn a hissymrathies. The matter was so well conceived adexecditedtlhat the Governor and courts were a partyto this class of legislation and really man aged things about to suit themselves.

Herald.] WASHUI.STON, March 25.-A delegatios of Southern Republicans from the Stae of Mississippi, represented by Jonathas Turbell, who is an officeholder here it one of the departments, called opon the President yesterday afternoon to talk over Southern affairs and matters pertaining to his policy in general They were kindly received by the Preat dent, who spoke quite freely with them, the principal subject of conversation being the cessation of military inter ference in the two Southern States. President Hayes said that the policy of sustaining State governments with the aid of troops was not, in his mind, the proper thing to continue, and hence he had reached the conclusion that it was incdmbent upon him to change it. Be sides, public opinion had been aroused upon the subject, and was for the most part opposed to it. In addition to this it was evident that Congress would not furnish him with the troops to continue such a policy, and if he did not have the troops he coult not well see how he would be able to use them. The failure of the army appropriation bill showed what Congress thought. If this were to continue it would seriously affect the army, as no provision would be made for the payment of troops.
