Washington, Fob. 20.- The follow ing important letter was read to night by Governor Cox, of phio, to the Uuiuu Representatives iu Congress from that State. Washington, Monday, Feb. 20, 'CO. Gin. George JS. IVriyhl, Chairman. W' the L'uwn Central Cumnuttec, Columbus, Vluo: Mr Peab S:e : On Saturday last I haJ the honor of aa interview with the President, which I regarded as of su2i- cicat interest and importance to make it proper that I should reduce to writing my remembrance of his statements, whil.-t they were fresh in my memory, since he eme5 to me in a perfectly fieo and unpre meditated conversation to exhibit with pecul ar clearness the processes t f his ... .. . s;nal feeling, that I could not but think that if he would consent to it good might be done by making iis. statements public. Accordingly, X sgaio waited upon him this morning, to make knowu what I had done, to ask his vil ification of the truth of 11.J report, and his consent to make the same kuown to the country. Al though he was perfectly unaware of my purpose to reduce his remarks to writing, and I myself had no such inteutiou wheu I first called upon him, he most frankly gave his consent, and assented to the accuracy of my report, which is as follows : lie said he had no thought which he was not willing to avow ; that his policy had simply aimed at the earliest possible restoration of peace on the basis of loy alty. No congressional policy had ever bceu adopted, and therefore, when he entered upon tiie duties of his office, he was obliged to adopt one of his oro. He had in some sense ioheriteJ that of Mr. Liecjln, with trhich Le thought he agreed, aud that was substantially the one which he had carried out. Congress had no just ground of complaint that he had done so, for they had not seen fit to de clare their views or adopt any measures embodying what could be called a policy of restoration. lie was Satisfied that no long continu ance of military government could be tolerated; that the whole country would pr,.,..Tly dc'in'id the rcs'.oiatiou of a TH COSSTITCTIOS IH CHIOS MFFLLNTOWN, JUNIATA COUNTS PENfl'A.

Military govern- J a failure, but as a success. lie had ac ment alono would Dot pacify the Soutl. I cordingly reorganized the Fost-offico Be. 41 the end ot a long period of bucq j partment everywhere among them, had government we would be no nearer, anl j reopened trade and removed restrictions probably not so near the end, than now,! thereon through the Treasury Pepart aud wauld have the same work to do. J ment, and in like manner in all the exe- Uence, there is a real uecessity of j cutive departments, recognized thaui as adoptiug a policy which should restore the civil government fully just as soon as the rebellion should be thoroughly euded, aud thee eouditions accepted by the South, which were to bo regarded as absolutely nccesary to the peace of the country. One central idea had contrqllpd him in the whole matter ; and this was, that the proper system of pacification should be one which tended everywhere to stimu late the loyalty of the people of the South themselves, and make it the spring of loyal conduct by proper legislation, rather than to impose upon them laws and conditions by direct external force. Thus, ir. the case of the fteedmau's bu reau ; he was uot against tbe idea of the freeutnen's bureau, in toto, for he had used it, aud was still uticg it. It might coutinue for a period of more than a year yet. lie had contemplated that, cither by proclamation of his owu or by some ac tion of Congress as a condition of peace, the technical end of the rebellion would probably be declared at some period per haps uot very remote : aud as he under stood the present law the bureau might coutinue a year from that lime. Mean while he could say to the South : l,It d-jpeadi upon yourselves to say whether the bureau shall be discontinued at an earlier day, for I will put an end to it iust as scon as y.m, by proper aetiou f" the protection cT thu IVeediueu, make it necessary." Thus, said he, the hope of getting rid of the institution stin ulatcs them to do shat is right, whilst they are uot. dis couraged by the idea that there is no hope of an end to what they regard as a sort of military goveinmt. If ou the other hand, the bureau were to be uia-Je a per- maneut thing by legislation, which on its j face appeals to be part of the fixed law ulj the laud, all the objections he had urncd in his message applied in full force to it. and instead of eucourav'iug the South to loyalty, you tend to drive them to des- j but he bu-1 uot thought it yet time to fix peiatiou aud make their hatred of the j uis 0wu ideas of. the precise mode of at Government inveterate. I coniplisbing this end, because we had a The same principal of stimulating loy- j oiargiu of time lasting till after the next altv was shown in the inanne r in which ' session of Congress, during which the he he'd martial law over them. When ever they should show so peaceful and hw-abidiug a condition of their commu nity that martial law was not uccded, it shuuld be removed. Their owu eouduct would thus determine the matter, and the desire and interest of all the best pco- pie be increased to put dowu disturbau- ccs and outbreaks, to protect Union men and obey the laws, because by so doiug they would hasten the withdrawal of the j direct interference of the military arm in their affairs. In precisely hc same way and under the inSi c ice of the same idea, he had acted in regard to civil affairs generally in that section, regarding it as necessary and proper to ijiposc upon the rebellious States conditions which would guarantee the Safety of the country; aud regarding the then existiug affairs of the local gov ernments as having disqualified them selves by their treason, for coutiuuance in power, he deposed them aud established provisional governments. Then he asked hiui.-elf what conditions ought to be de manded cf theuiand how tbeir disposition to accept them in god faith might be stimulated. The conditions, viz : the amendment of State constitutions excluding slavery, the acceptance of the same amendmeut of the United States Constitution, tbe ! and perfeet understanding with them, repudiation of the rebel debt and admis- This sentiment and purpose he regarded sion of the lrccdmen to various rights, as entirely consistent with determined op Ac., everybody is familiar with.

States in the Jnion, only keeping euotigh of a military hold to protect the freed men, as he hac before stated, and to in duce them to do something more thor ough iu that lirection. Now but one 'hirig rcmainel in which those States did nut exercise the full rights of States, 1 nd that is representation ia Congress. In this he had advised that the same prin ciple of btuiulating loyalty be applied as in tbe othfr respects which he had named. lie would admit ouly such rcpretenta tivUws were in fact. loyal men, giving satisfactory evidence of this. Whenever a State or district sent a loyal man, properly elected and qualified, he would think it riyht to admit him ths same as from any other State, and he would ad mit none but such loyal men, so that otner States or districts might be thus in duced to elect and send similar men. When they had all doue this their repre sentation would be full, and the work would be done. Such was his plan. He did not ask to be the judge of the elections and qualifi cations of members of Congress, or of their loyalty. Congress was its own judge, and he had no dream of interfering with its constitutional rights ; but he felt like urging upon them, and upon the country, that this mode of finishing the work, vas the ouly feasible one which had been pre sented, and that it was impossible to ignore the fact that l!is ' States were exercisin their rights aud enjoying their privileges within the Union were, iu short, restored ia all other" respects, and that it is too late to question the fundamental right of representation. I then remarked to him that I had heard it suixircstcfl that legislation could ! properly Le made by Congress, purely 1 civil ia iu character, providing for the protection of the frcsdrien by United States courts of inferior jurisdiction, in all cases where the States did not do so themselves. He replied that such nn idea would run exactly parallel to his plan. pre.-eut freedman's bureau could coutinue ia operation ; and, if before that time the Southern States should recognize the ne cessity of passing propsr laws themselves, and providing a proper system of protcc-, tiun fur tbe freedaten, nothing further on our part would be necessary. If'they did U0! do what they ought, there would then ,n time enough to elaborate a plan, He theu referred briefly to the fact, that men who have bceu ujsloyal were re 'juicing ovel h(3 veto message, saying, that if these men, in good faith, adopted the views of the policy he had himself held and acted upou, aud which he had so freely elaborated in his annual message and ex. plaiued to me, the country surely could have no cause for sorrow in that. If dis loyal men and rebels everywhere, North and South, bhould cordially give iu their adherence to the conditions of restoration he had uniformly insisted upon, he thought that was precisely the kind of pacification loyal men everywhere should rejoice iu. The cora t!iy were committed to such a coarse the better he would like it, for if they were nit sincere, they would at least duuiuish their power of dangerous oppo sition in future. His whole heart was with the body of true men who had car ried the country through the war, and he earnestly desired to maintain a cordial l'ite ruin might come upon us. Such, my dear sir, ts the conversational statement of the President on this impor tant matter; acl if yea could mct his straightforward, honest look, and hear the hearty tones of bis voioe, as I did, I am well assured that yon would believe, witli me, that, although he may not receive rersonal attacks with the ' equanimity and forbearance Mr. Lincoln used to show, there is no need to fear that Andrew John sou is not hearty and sincere in his adhe sion to the principles upon which he was elected. Very truly, yours, J. D. Cox.

The face toward Fort j Moultrie and the channel is covered and protected by a solid work of interwoven palmetto logs. Vet the structure of the fort is scarred and cracked and broken above and around, and behind these addi tional defanccs. The casemates, closed and covered by an immense framework of heavy beams, and this again thick with earth, cau le entered only by winding passages, damp and dripping with mois ture. The casements case entered, it would hardly seem possible that any human being could have lived any length of time within them. The guns were slimy and mouldy, and the carriages were sweating with an oily moisture. Climbing out of the stone port-hole and through the more widely expanded ones in the palmetto logs you could look dowu around the base of the fort, wher.3 the ceaseless tide had woven over each of the stones mautie like I thick, green wet floss, and see fragments of shell and broken bolts.

We looked towards the joung lady for a concluding tale of the train 'and that Schtheiezade of our copartment, without the least pretense of incapacity er hoarse ness, communicated at once the following adventure : "Although," she conrmenced, "I am often compelled to travel without a com panion" (the commercial traveler sighed,) "yet have I such a dislike to the company of babies and sick folks that I never make a journey in a ladies' carriage. Only once, however, have I suflered aDy inconveni ence through my unprotected condition, an 1 that exception occurred very lately, and upon this very line. After I had taken my seat one morning at Haddington, earria-e. 1 was ioincd iust as eJ for fear of his not being iu his right mind, nor did his subsequent conduct at all rea?sure me. Our train was an express, atd he inquired eagerly at once which was the firrt ctstioa whereat wo were advertised to step. I consulted my Uradshaw, and furnished him with the re quired information. It was Reading. The yonng mau looked at his watch. "Madam," said he, "I have but halfaa hour between me and, it may be, rain. Excuse, therefore, my abruptness. You have, I perceive, a pair ef scissors in your work-bag. Oblige pie if yon please, by cutting off my bait." "Sir," said I, "it ia impossible." "Madam," he urged, and a lock of se vere determination crossed his features, "I am a desperaie man. Beware how you refuse me what I ask. Cut my hair off short, close to the roots immediately ; and here is a newspaper to bold the am brosial curb)." I thought be was mad, of course; and believing thu it would be dangerous to thwart him, I cut off all his hair to the last lock. "Xow, madam," said he, unlocking a small portmanteau, "you will further oblige mo by locking out of the window, as I am about to change clothes." Of course I looked out of the window ! for soni6 time, and when be observed, i ,,-..'

"I do not wish to threaten you, young lady," he resumed, "and I thiuk besides, that I can trust your kiud face.

In another minute ho was gone, ami the train was in motion. Not till the next morning did I lcaru from the Times newspaper that the gentleman on whom I had operated as .hair-cutter had committed a forgery to an enormous amount in Lon don a few hours before I met him, and that he had been tracked iuto the express train at Haddington; but that, although the telegraph had been put in motion and described him accurately, at Heading, when the train was searched, ha was no where to be found. fcirA follow out West being asked whether the liquor he was drinking was a good article, replied : "Wal, 1 don't know, guess S3.
