Tho Chase Faction on Negro Suf frage-Tho Vagabond Sanders oe Southern Rights. Two remarkable political manifestoes will bm found in another part of thu , paper. The one is addressed 'To th? Friends of Humanity ani Justice, ?nd co nes frotn the radical negro suf ?frage faction of which Chief Justice .Clia.sn is the chief engineer and lVe tudential champion; and the other i from the rebel. vagabond and outlaw George 2J. Sanders, in " nada, ad dressed 'To thu Pal riots; of the South' i. e." the rebels-on Southern rights * and the way to secure those rights bj ? Southern votes. The tie^r? sn liragi circular unquestionably lays down tin campaign issue of Judge Chase for th< Presidency, and we think it quite pru liable that some such Northern an? Southern copperhead and rebel prc gramme as that suggested by Sander will guide a radical Presidential move nient on tho other extreaie. The negro suffrage mauifesto, ema nat'mg doubtless from the getter3-up t tho late Coo.per Institute meeting i honor of General Grant, starts frot .the text-'Shall colored loyal cit'Zer of the United States be deprived i the vole while it is given to whi' traitor??' 'Shall traitors (whites) I rewarded for their treason by g-ivir them the franchise, while loyal nu (the Southern blacks) are punished I their loy.'dty by taking it awa) These questions are repeated in vario modifications', and then follows t! assertion that 'the proposition to ci prive tho loyal colored citizens of tbi ilote, and to fut over and against the the sole power of tho Slate Govei ments-South-into the Lands rebels, ia the great measure of reec. ptrttction proclaimed by Preside Johnson.' The question is next put 'Shall thid proposed measure of t present Administration bofc sanction aud sustained?' And then this call made upon the people. 'Let 1 people arriver.' Here we have uot only the party and the issue for a direct fight with the Administration, but a declaration of war and an appeal to the people. Then we have numerous quotations from high authorities in support.of negro suffrage, und numerous prece? dents of its exercise, North and South, to show that this extension of the suf? frage is not only right and proper, and not at all dangerous, but that, as things now stand down South, it i-> absolutely necessary fur the public safety. This circular will be sown broadcast North and South, and upon the sharply defined- issue presented between the claims of the loyal black population of the South through all the war, and the disloyal whites, it will have a very considerable influence upon the public mimi, especially in tho North. Meantime Judge Chase is making a tour of the Southern States, and??3 doing all he can in favor of negro suffrage in that quarter. His retainers will probably follow with such appeals to the Southern emanci? pated blacks as may render them dif? ficult of riianflgetneiit until they get the concession of the right to vote. There is still this other argument pre? sented in support of this concession; that without it the unconverted South? ern rebel whites will carry the vote of every Southern State, in every shape and form, in favor of the repudiation of the National debt-Jeff's debt having been settled in that way, Iiis original Mississippi plan of repudiation. So much for the platform and pro? gramme of Judge Chase for the sue cession against the administration ol President Johnson. Wheh it is re? membered, too, that Judge Chase has H. powerful body of electioneering fol? lowers in the custom houser, interna! revenue officers and other Treasury agents, President Johnson, for the unity of his administration, may find it necessary before long lo put in practice, on an extensive scale, hit favorite doctrine of rotation. The Scriptural maxim upon which Abra? ham ?Lincoln brought himself into thc foreground as a great political leadei in 1S59, against Douglas, was this that *a house divided against it?el cannot stand.' The unity of the Re publican party is a small matter; bu' the unity of nil the working machinen of the Administration U a thing o some practical importance, aud par licujarly in this great work of recon strflction. Chief Justice Chase ant his radical negro suffrage faotion an in the way to make some trouble ii the Administration camp, and betweei the two races in the South, and in th< country r.t Targe, and ihe Presiden should look into this business. The manifesto of Sanders si m pb means another political organization ii the South for another..rebellion.* IT has the same opinion of Presiden Johnson that he and Booth and Com pany had .of President Lincoln-lie i a 'tyrant.' Sanders does not like inn and suggests to the beaten rebels tba they perjure themselves freely, an that they call upon their Norther friends to meet them in convention i New York to 'organize a great Ni tional party, such as will deter th pTolligate President and his provo; spies trom laying their brutal han?; upon inoffending men, women, an children,' referring, we"presume> t? l' capture of Jeff. Davis and bis part If any thing will serve to turn tl ?cale at Washington in favor of imm d?ate and universal negro suffrage, th programme of Sanders, if attempte j will do it We suspect that it will I I tried. President Johnson, in view of tl difficulties with which he has to gra pie, on the right hand and the le will probably be constrained to call i extra session of Congress. Whatev be may do in the interval to. Decet ber, in the wty of reconstructs without Congress, will be subject tot question of approval or rejection Cu?igreu. Beside?, lhi?? whole bu ... Jg._ ness of suffrage should now be regu? lated by an amendment of the Federal Constitution, and in view of the great political revolution in which we are still involved, there are ot??er cousti tutional amendments necessary to meet the new order of thuigs before us. For these purposes a Convention of all the States would, perhaps, he the best beginning; but even in this view tho shortest roaS to the object leads through an extra session of Con? gress.-New' York Herald. m\ MORMONS ON THEIR WAY TH THE NEW JKUV.SAI.EM.-(Jn Thursday last, 630 converts to Mormonism landed at Castle Garden, New York, fresh from Europe. One-half were femal.es.. Nearly every age was represented. 558 Mormons from Hamburg, chiefly North Germans, aro now on the way to New York. Tho World says that tho mass of "these emigrants are now profoundly ignorant,- That paper further says: Ao?t t&>-thitds of them were Eng? lish, of the extremest cockney reli? gion. Mormonism may cure the souls of these but it cannot mend their dialect. They took possession of the land as soon as they arrived on it, dropped .their bags, beds, and tinnery immediately, and taking huge clasp knives from their pockets began to cut bread and cheese, poking it down their throats with the knife. The Londoner was there-he who' goes out for a thoughtful walk on Sabbath mon.ing with a bull terri o v under his, arm; the Manchester man, stoop backed by working at the loom, and heaps ol' Welehmen, short of body and solid face. These Welch are obeying iii this immigalion an ethnological, rather than a reftgious law. They have resisted for centuries any effort, to be denationalized, or to absorb their lan? guage and habits in those of their conquerors. So they are quitting their Welch mountain-* for the valley of Deseret, and accepting polygamy for the sake of a sanctuary. Thc lan i which produced Goethe and Lessing contributed to the scene at Castle Garden many buxom maidens in blue stockings and short petticoats, whom bonnets were, an aversion and teeth brushes in vain. They will doubt? less make excellent wives in the New Jerusalem, bu'- one of them should he enough for ordinary human nature. Tiiey ate their lunch in our presence, ami judging by its amount wc thought it, their day's ration. Theru were some Scotch in the party, and we were told, three Irishmen. It is not, probable that t'ne Scotch converts will become extensive polygamists, if expense is to be the leading feature* of tho Mor? mon economy. The Irish Mormons' lotiked out of place. Paddy, with four wives'eft his arm, would cut an awkward figure anywhere. A QfiBKR LETTER.-The Washing? ton Star say* the paper in einher found floating in the dock at More? head City, N.
