[BPECTAI. DISPATCHES TO THE NBW YOBK TTME8.]
WASHTNaTON, Novenibor 14.-The following is a
portion of a communication to-day addressed by a
member of the Cabinet to a friend of the Adminis
tration in New England, who scorned to bo apnrc
honeivo that tho difficulties between tho President
and Congress might induoo action on the part of
the former which would tond to widen tho broach,
if it did not put important interests in peril. Tho
member of the Cabinet says:
j Notwithstanding his long public, oaroor, fow mon
eoom to bo loss understood than Prosidont JOHN
SON. . That he is a mon of strong eonvictioiiB and
earnest purpoBOB is evident from tho manner in
which he advocated and pushed forward important
measures in Congress, like the Homestead Bill,
and tho stand which ho took against secession and
in favor of tho Government during the Into civil
var. Ho behoves that tho manner in which ho
proposed that tho Govornmont should deal with
the Southern States was not only a magnanimous
?one-, but tho only ono likely to result in a speedy
and hearty r?conciliation hotweon tho sootions,
and ho has folt it to ho his duty to sustain Iii?
viows by tho oxorciso of such powors as tho Consti
tution had clothed him willi. But whilo this has
boon, and, doubtless will continue lo ho his courso,
ho will violate no law, nor fail to perform tho
duties which aro legally dovolvod upon him. He
will voto ovory bill that ho may regard unconstitu
tional, no mailor how unpopular it may bo for him
to do so; but he will execute with scrupulous fidel
ity all laws, and ospeoially thoao to which bo lias
dcclinod to givo his Executive sanotion, Tho ap
prehension which you eoom lo feo), and which
many othors share with you, that Mr. JOHNSON will
attempt to forco Soulhorn Roprosontativoil into
Congrose, or do any other imprudent thing by
whioh the publie poaoe will be disturbed, or the
publio credit bo deranged, io utterly nnfoundod.
While he will exorcise f larlesaly the power whioh
he posBosee under the Constitution, in furtherance
of the measuroa whioh he thinks are boat calcu
lated to proinot* ?he publio weal, bo will not quat
rol with Congress for pursuing tho onmo indopon
dont course. Ho rogrota tbo diBagroomout botwoon
tho Legislativo and Eiccutivo branchos of tho
Government, and would, I doubt not, yiold much
to cflbot a ?eoonciliatiou. Ho will not, ho wovor,
sacrifico hie prineiploa.nor violate the Constitution,
according to his intorprotation of it, no matter
what prcasuro may bo brought to boor upon him.
He momia to do right OH ho understands. Ino right,
and will trust to timo for tho vindication of his
courso. Ho will bo as truo to tho Constitution
and tho Govornmont na Prosidout of tho Uuitcd
States as ho was truo and steadfast to tho Union in
tho darko?t days of its trials.
THE MACHINE SHOPS OF CHARLESTON.
Thero is nothing romantic about a machino
shop-nothing to attract tho writer or tho roador
pf light literature. Li fact, the two thiugs aro con
tradictory : light litoraturo is a synonym of idlo
noBs; a machine shop is a synonym of industry.
Thcro is ono characteristic of tho workshop, how
ovor, that gives it an intercut, at loutit, to iho
writors of li^ht literature-thoao follows always so
hard up that it roquirostho highest flightB of their
genius to make two ends meet-and that ia. that
they aro monoy-inaking institutions. It is this
quality that recoinmouds thom to our attention at
present, for all tho world-f. e., tho world within
tho horizon of our circulation-io BO hard up that
its ears aro only open to tho magic rusti? of
greenbacks or tho tnlismanic chink of coin. Peo
ple speak with honor of tho great highway rob
bery of a passenger train in Kentucky ,"but every
body onvios tho niau who pockotcd the most booty;
and you might writo a book about tho mammoth
charities of Mr. PEABOD?, aud your roadora would
closo it and, with one consent, exclaim: l If ho
would ?iily toko a fancy lo mc and leave mo just ono
little fortune 1" It is becauso machino shops inako
money, thoreforo, that wo havo chosen them for
tho subject of this article, and it is on that
ground that wo dopoud for tho interested attention
of our readers. Charleston has the ropulation
abroad of boing a city of old fogies, whoro me
chanics hava. not half a chanco, and somo of our
ownoitizons axe inclined to indulge in tho same
belief ; but wo intend to atato a fow facts, in tho
course of tliis article, which wo hope will seno to
abrogate any such notion from the minds of our
roadors. "VYo shall mention the 'various machino
shops topographically, commencing at Line-street,
as if wo had just popped in from tho country and
woro bent on finding some nondescript engine,
which, after all, was not tojbo found. The first
establishment that wo strike on this route is, of
SOUTH CAT.OIJNA- nAILUOAD CAB SHOPS.
Those aro situated north of Lino street, and are
tho most exlonsivo works of tho kind in tho city.
Here freight, mail and socond and first class pas
senger cara ara mado out and out. Thcro aro seve
ral cars now on tho stocks, among which aro a
mail car, to run on tho through routo from Augusta
to lung ville, and a commissary car, built expressly
for tho commisaary of this department, to trans
port provisions to the troops in tho interior. Wo
saw horo two tools that wo did not see in any oi
the othor shops. Ouo was a trip-hanmior, worked
by machinery that could bo so rogulatod as to
strike a blow hoavio: than that of a giant or aa
light as that of an infant. Tho other wau an In*
Btrumout i'or palling off car whools from tho nxlos.
It is so powerful that it sometime? snaps in two
one of its iron parts that is six inches wido and
six inches thick. Tho South Carolina Railroad
Company now mako all their own cars, aud tharc
are different departments in the shops for iron
work, carpenter's work, painting, seating and tin
ning, so that when tho car is turned out it is in
running order and doos not need any additional
work whatovor. Among the curiositioa of the
placo is a car mado ontholy of iron. It was for
merly tho headquarters car of Major-Goneral
THOMAS, and was bought by Superintendent PEAKE
at a Government solo in Nashville It is divided
into threo compartments-ouo is a kitchen, an
other a dining room, and tho third ?B furnished
with soato that may bo changed into comfortable
beds. On each door is painted ''Headquarters De
partment of the Cumberland." Wo supposo that
tho General must havo had this car manufactured
to ordor, to enablo him to travel in the stylo suited
to his position without fear of guerilla ri?o balls.
On tho south sido of Lino ?trout, just oppoaito tho
South Carolina Railroad Car Sbopa, oro tho
WOBKSHOPB OP MK3SBS. WHAllTON a PETSCH.
Tho work dono boro is exclusively wood work,
BUOh as building cara, planing boards, grooving
and tonguoing, rabiting, &o., &o. Tho principal
jobs now on hand otp somo freight cara for tho
Northoastorn Railroful and thoCheraw and Dal
lington ltailroad, and tho shaping of tho stringers
for the City Railroad. Tho shaping of a stringer,
which ia tho stick of lumbor on which tho iron ia
laid, is performed in a Bingle operation, and dooa
not toko more than half a minuto. Messrs. WHAR
TON & PETSCH contracted to chapo eloven ni ile? of
atringora, and tho job is now conipletoci, or nearly
so. Liko all tho machino ohopa established be
fore tho war, this ono has eufi?rod greatly at the
hands of tho enemy, but it is now in a fair way to
reouporato. Mesara. WHABTON & PETSCH deserve
groat credit for their enterprise and industry, and
wo hopo that th?y havo taken tho first stops on tho
road to wealth and ?iflluonco. Not far from hero,
on tho east side of Mooting strcot, and just bolow
Lino strcot, aro tho

shop cannot bo confined to tho mauuiacuiro of a
singl? artiole, and ncoordingly boilers, saw mills,
cano mills, ca:.t-irou columns and btoro fronts,

Tho finishing room ocoupioa the greater portion of

of the square on Mooting-iitroot. Tho rematador
of the building is occupied bj the oOicoa of the Su
poviu tondent and XkttUtcofor, cjc'l tho real of tho
busin osa dopartmont. On Spring-street is another I
loug brick building, containing tho forges, and on
tho northwofst corner of tho Bqunro, at tho inter
section of tho Railroad with Columbus-atroot, is !
tho rouiid-houso, n circular building, intended for
tho accommodation of cngiuos needing mpair.
Thoro aro two tracks loading into the round-houso,
and in tho contro is a turn-tablo, by moan? of which
tho engines can bo shifted on to any one of the short
tracks proparcd for their reception. Thora aro
oighteon of thoso, and of courso that number of
locomotives can bo housed at ono time, but thcro
aro at prosont only twolvo under repair. Tho
roiuid-hoiiBO is tho feature which distinguishes
theso shops from any others in town, and tho
making and repair of difforont parts of locomotives
is tho principal work done.

THE PBESinENT AND THE CONSTTTUTIONAT, AMEND
During the last fow days parties havo boon here
endeavoring, if possible, to porauado the Preaidont
to como out utroug for the Constitutional Amend
ment in his forthcoming mosBngo. They arguo
that in so doing ho will hoad off cortnin other pro
positions which tho lladicals intend to adopt. I
understand that Mr. Johnson has not as yot given
these gentlomon thoir answer. It has been rumor
ed boro for tho last wcok that it was his intention
to proposo au arrangement similar to tho one now
ronding, but in a modified form, rocommonding,
among'othor mattors, tho withdrawal of tho dis
franchising provision in tho amondmont as it ia
Tho ProBidont is collecting from tho most nu
thonlic BOUVCOS information rognrding tho situa
tion in tho South, preparatory to framing luS an
nual mossagc. Gonoral Sickles was closeted with
him to-day, and submitted bia views. It ia poBai
blo that the Prosidout may rocommond to Congress
tho convocation of a National Convention, in which
all tho StotoB ahnll bo roprcsoutod, to consider the
grave questions now boioro tho nation. Although
tho pooplo of the South may not favor tho ponding
Conatitu:ioual Amondmont, and may regard tho
schism between tho Prosidont and Congross nu
calculated ultimately to inuro to thoir own noncfit..
thov will in tho ond acquiesce in whatever the
highest bronchos of tho Government may uni I o in
proposing. Tho President will probably suggest
such measures to Congress as may mako hi? Leg

tho question of restoration.
TUE BITUATION IN TEXAS-STATEMENT 0? QENEBAE
KID?OO, OF THE FBEEOHENS HUBEAU.
Brevet Major-Gcnoral J. D. Kiddoo, Assistant
Commissioner of tho Frcodmon's Hiircau in the
Stato of Texas, has arrived in tho city, having been
sent for by tho Commissioner on businoss connect
ed with tlio bureau. Gen. Kiddoo represents the
f ealing dt the Toxans to bo much moro friendly to
tho Government than roany reports havo indicated.
Thcro is an un mint nimble desire manifested by the
pcoplo in general to acquiesce in the moasurcs
imposed upon thom by tho Government. In tho
matter., of negro suflrage tboy aro not so much
opposed to conferring.tho privUogo upon tho freed
men as thoy aro to having it forced on them by
Congross. If loft to their own action the elective
franchiso would oro long be granted to tho freod
mon by tho Stato L?gislature. Tho Gonoral Blatas
that tho cotton crop nao turned out quita well, ai:d
had it not boon for tho ravages of tho army worm
it would have compared well with tho crop of 18G0.
It in estimated, however, that one-fifth at least of
tho whole cotton crop of tho United States this
year has been raised in Texas.

for about an hour. Before his doparturo, Mr.
Soward, Gov. Randall, Mr. Mcculloch, and Mr.
Browning arrived, and remained in consultation
with tho President until 10 o'clock. It ia behoved
that this mooting was for consultation upon a
most important subject, based upon an effort now
making by leading men of all partios, to induco
the President, in consideration of a gonoral am
nesty, to induce tho pooplo of the South to accept

To th? Debilitated and the Docrcpid.
Tor general debility and exhaustion of tho powers of
nature, whether occasioned by sickness, fast livin;;, con
stitutional decay, old ago, or any other physical or mon
tai cause, tho ono thing needful aud indispensable is
HOSTETTER'S CELEBRATED STOMACH BITTERS.
When the fire of Ufo sectus to bo absolutely dying out in
the System, and the mind, sympathizing with the body
ia reduced ohuoRt to a state of imbecility, this mighty
Bestorativc seems, as it Vero, to lift tho ?iiflercr out of
the Slough of Despond, and recruit and rclnvigoroto
both the framo aud "tho intollcct. An old farmer in tho
Valley of tho Monongahela writes thus to Dr. HoDTr.TTT.nr
" I can comparo the operation of your Bitters upon mo to
nothing but the effect of a rain aftor a long dry spoil in
tho fall of tho year. Tho rain falling on tho meadow?
starts the second crop of grass, and your wholesome
medicine scorns to havo started a second crop of life and
spirits in ino." And this is truly Uio effect of this grate
ful and powerful preparation. Ladies of weak constitu
tion, or whoso strongth has been impaired by sickness or
ago. Hud it a most ofUcacious and delightful Tonic, and it
is administered with groat success in marasmus cr wast
ing of tho flesh, to young children. In foot, it lo a much,
safer and suror cordial for tho nnrsory than anything ad
vertised specially for that purpose.
