Alexander H. Stephens.
A. Washing-ton correspondent of the Phfladelphi* Ledger gives an account'of an interview with A. H. Stephens: He was received very cordially by the President, whom he thanked in his asnal pleasant but dignified way, and a conversa? tion then ensued noon the condition of the country, the President s plan of restoration and reminiscences of the past. Both gen? tlemen were perfectly easy and unrestrain? ed in their language" and manner, and thc interview was _ aa pleasant as if oetweeu two old but long estranged friends. Ba a conversation with your correspon? dent Mr. Stephens said that it was owing to a want of unity through the South that their cauae was lost. When a system of the most crushing des? potism was inaugurated at Richmond, from that moment the struggle was abandoned, and the Confederacy was left to its fate. Mr. Stephens was very careful not to mention thc name of the rebel President in speaking aa above, but it was not difficult to seo that there must have been a long es? trangement between them, and that the acta of Dans within the last year or more of his Administration, were i? no sense or manner countenanced or supported by the second officer of thc so-cahod "Govern? ment." Towards Davis personally, however, I do not behove that Mr. Stephens entertains a single unkind feeling. ''His trial," said he, "would do no j-ood." La so far aa the charge of treason was concerned, he was equaliv guilty with Davis, and so, he added, were thousands besides. The statement that has gone forth from Fort Warren, to the effect that Mr. Stephens had -?complained*' of his continued incar? ceration, while those moro bitter than ho were liberated. Mr. S. informed me was not corroer. In a jocular way, he said to one of his visitors: "I cannot see why I am confined, while others who took a more active part in thc rebellion are daily liberated;" but so far as complaining, he said it never escaped his Ups. While in close confinement within the uamp walls of the fort, Mr. Stephens fell away considerably: but from tho mo? ment he was allowed* free exercise out of doors, ho commenced to gain in fiesh, and is now almost as well as anytime within the last six years. I need not tell you that he accepts thc situation, for ho does so without a murmur. Indeed, those who have judged him harsh? ly throughout the war have judged him wrongly, for, during tho whole ol ita con? tinuance, his heart ever beat warmly to? ward tho old Union. He had, of course, bis life-long confirmed notions about tho "Rights of the States:" but this was more for their own protection than with any view to tho disruption of the glorious phalanx as it then existed. When overborne by the torrent, however, like many others e.pia Hy true to the flag, he went"with his State* though under'a protest which none who have read can ever forget, nor, after reading, doubt the pa? triotism that inspired it. Mr. Stephens takes a great interest in tho result of the elections in Georgia, and hopes that good and true men will'bc every where chosen. Ho expects to roach his home at Crawfordsville about the28th, and will proceed thence via Atlanta. ANOTHEE CARD OF IssrnrcnoNs FHOM Pr.ESiDF.yr JOHNSON.-The Secretary of State has informed Governor Johnson, of Georg::-, that "tho President cannot re? cognize the people of any State (lately in rebellion as having resumed tho relations of loyalty to the Union that admits as legal obligations debts created in its name to promote the war ot the rebcUion.': This will doubtless be sufficient, not only for thc re-organizing State Convention of Georgia, now in session, but for the proper under? standing of the subject by Governor Perry, cf South Carolina, and his Legislatur?, and by the responsible authorities of every other State concerned. Tho repudiation of it i rebel debts is a condition precedent which must be met by every State of thc late so-called Southern" Confederacy, before ita reconstructed government can be re? cognized by President Johnson, to say nothing of Congress. Another indisputable consideration must be met by every State concerned before it can expect to bo recommended by the Presi? dent to Congress--and that condition is thc ratification by tho State Legislature of the amendment of the Fedora! Contistution abolishing and prohibiting slavery within the limits and jurisdiction of the United States. Tho new loyal Legislatures of Mississippi and South" Carolina aro now in session. Neither of them has yet moved in the matter of this ratification ; but it is to be hoped that they will each very soon perform this needful" and important work. We vant only four moro States to make this constitutional amendment a ? art of the supreme law of tho land. With the two Southern States above named enrolled in the ratification, wc shad only lack two to completo the work, and North Carolina and Georgia will fill thc requisition. To thc States in the list required to make just three-fourths of all tho States will bolong the honor of this amendment. All the rest that may be obtained, will be superfluous. If, therefore, Mississippi, North and South Carolina and Georgia present themselves as the tirst States from the rebellion to ratify this amendment they will be tho first to walk into Congress: provided, always, that they shall not bav? forgotten tho re? pudiation of then: rebel debts. North Caroliua has led off in this repudiation, olean and absolute. Now let her, when her Legislature meet-, lead oft' in this afore? said ratification, and her application for a re-admission into Congress cannot be re sisted.-Note York Herald.
