Another Plait of Adjustment.
Plans for thc adjustment of tho
vexed question of "North and South'*
are as thick in Congress as the most
ardent could desire. We hope one
will be hit ttpon after awhile lo re?
lieve thc anxieties of the people. The
"Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore Gazelle writes:
If the announcement of Mr. Banks,
on Friday, that a plan of adjustment
?was in embryo which could meet tho
sanction of tho President, created in
the mind of every ode hopes of sin?
cerity, even on bis part, such hojees
were utterly dissipated upon its in?
troduction on Saturday. The project
of Stevens, with all its audacity anti
atrociousness, possessed at least the
virtue of honesty-that of Banks, (a
synopsis of which I append,) while it
is equally violative of the Constitu
tion, while it equally subjects the
Southern States to tho worst form of
military rule, while it equally ignores
the Executive and judicial branches
of tho Government, yet sneakingly
attempts to veil its purposes, and,
avowedly, is a mere snare to entrap
the President, so that his pre-ordained
expulsion from office may fall with
less appalling fore > upon the public
The billjjk>f Mr. Banks is in direct
conflict even with his own speech,
delivered immediately preceding its
introduction. In that harangue, he
distinctly declared that the plan he
was foreshadowing was based upon
the "constitutional amendment."'
which he gratuitously assumed had
already been adopted by three-fourths
of the represented State.", while his
own State yet stubbornly rejects it.
Yet his bill violates every provision
even of that amendment. It will bo
seen that it, in terms, remits the un?
represented States to the condition
of the Indian Territories, and con?
templates a form of government,
even for a favored section, substan?
tially the same as that repudiated a?
totally unendurable by the wild tribes
of savages themselves, who have just
been mercifully placed under the con?
trol of tho War Departmon fc, to sav?
them from the still more horrible nth
of civil agents and commissioners,
whose tyranny has been enforced In
the bayonet.
The bill sets forth that the form ol
government now existing in Louisi
ana has never been recognized by tin
Congress of tho United States, ant
that it fails to secure rights to loya
citizens; and provides for a commis
sion of throe persons-one to be ap
pointed by the Senate, ono by tin
House of Representatives and one lo
the Secretary ol War-who shall bi
authorized to proceed to the State o
Louisiana, with authority to replao
the political organization now exist
ino; there.
Tho commissioners shall, willum
delay, secure a registry of all mal
citizens over twenty-one years of agc
without distinction of class, color o
former condition of slavery. All s
registered shall be allowed to vote
provided they have estates valued ii
$100 or upwards, orean read or writ?
or were horn within the State, c
have contributed, by payment <.
taxes, to the support of the Goveri
mont. Exception is made in tl
next section against every perso
who, as a member of Congress i
other officer of the United States, t
member of a State Legislature, i
Governor of a Stale, or had hold
judicial office, had taken an oath 1
support the Constitution of tl
United States and had 'subsequent
engaged iu rebellion against tl
United States, or had held olli
under the late Confederacy, or h?
participated in any pretended sect
sion convention, but Congress mi
by a voto of two-thirds of its mei
bers, remove such disability.
After the registry shall have be
completed, the commissioners sha
by giving thirty days notice, call <
election for delegates to a conventio
to be composed of a number equal
the number in the State Legislate
tV>rior to the late rebellion and to!
which convention shall be submitted!
?tho question of the acceptance of
this bill, and of thc ratification ot
?the constitutional amendment; and
tho convention shall thou proceed to
form a State Constitution, republican
in form, which shall be submitted to
a vote of the people; and il ratified
by a majority of them, it shall bo
submitted to Congress, and if ap?
proved by Congress, Louisiana shall
bc admitted to all the privileges in
the Union. An oath of non-partici?
pation in thc rebellion and of alle?
giance to the Constitution of tho
United States is prescribed to be
taken by all voters, and the judges
of the election are empowered to re?
fuse the vote of any person disquali?
fied by the bill.
Hen il J, of Tuesday, is urgent on tho
impeachment question. In an arti?
cle on the subject, it says:
The impeachment, thou, hangs fire.
Temporizing has intervened. The
Presbyterians have baffled the inde?
pendents of Congress, and a weaker
man than Cromwell may manage
them. The two houses ?ire all adrift.
Every would-be leader has his scheme
of reconstruction, and there, is no
leader among them at all. Upon the
tariff question, and upon the money
question, as iq>on the Southern ques?
tion, there are discords and divisions
in the Republican camp, all working
to tho advantage of Mr. Johnsen.
Give him an armistice of a month or
two, or a week or two, and he ruay
bc more successful than was Santa
Anim, through the same device, with
General Scott. The crisis which is
now upon Congress demands bold
measures; and that which is boldest
and most comprehensive, authorized
by the Constitution, is the best. The
proposed impeachment covers the
whole ground, and, if carried out,
would remove every difficulty which
stands in the way of Congress and
its Southern policy. Greeley's fears
upon this matter are all moonshine.
President Johnson's impeachment
und removal, in settling the Southern
question, instead of bringing on an?
other war, would be followed by an?
other political carnival, North and
South, something like that of 1810.
in which the shedding of blood would
give way to the shedding of whiskey,
apple-jack, hard cider and lager beer.
In this war, radicals and copperheads,
Yankees and Southerners, rebel
whites and loyal niggers, would all
he enlisted, and President and Con?
gress would not befar behind. Union
and rebel soldiers would clink their
glasses and sing together, and Sambo
would chime in with the chorus:
It must bo now de kingdom's coining,
And dc year of jubilo.
-?? ? ?
The New York World is collating
facts to show that a great famine in
Europe is at hand; and the question
jis then asked, whence are to come
?the supplies to meet the pressing de?
mand for breadstuff's that will be
'made upon us of the United States?
The editor says:
The wheat crop of Great Britain in
lSGG, like that in 180."?, was short, and
according to the latest calculation,
04,000,000 bushels will have to be
imported to supply thc average con?
sumption until the harvest of 1SG7.
Th\s would naturally come from the
Continent and the United States; but
from the latter little can be expected,
save from California, and of the
whole Continent none has any sur?
plus but Russia. The stock of wheat
now in store in the principal markets
in this country is, in round numbers,
4,Out),(IOU bushels, which is about
two-thirds of the quantity in store at]
this time last year, and it is not aeon-!
ululating, lt is further estimated
that ti ie total supply of wheat at the
grain markets of the world (taking
into account the reduced quantity
rem.tining from 1SG2 and tho sinnt
crop of I8G0) is but two thirds of the
average supply of previous years. As
regards other grains, the Linited.
States can furnish for exportation a
moderate quantity of corn, rye and,
outs, and at moderate prices; and as
an index of thc stock of grain now in
store, we append a table of tho stock
in this market on Saturday lase:
550,000 barrels flour; 2,200,000 bu?
shels wheat; 3,000,(100 bushels corn;
2,700,000 bushels oats; 000,000 bu?
shels rye; 1,000,000 bushels barley.
Total bushels grain, 11,300,000.
As before hinted, it is mainly to
Russia and California that Europe
must look for relief, and, were the
former to withhold supplies, a gene?
ral famine would bo the result.

REV". R. T. FI.TJAI.IN.- 7*0 Dr. TIos
leUer-DsZXB Sin: This is to certify that I
w,is taken with the dyspepsia a year ago
last March, and, for a period of eight
months, was one of the most miserable
creatures you ever beheld, not being able
ither to cat, drink or sleep, and was com?
pelled to walk the lloor incessantly. I was
nearly deprived of my reason, and hope
had entirely left mc, all tho efforts mach
for my recovery having proved fruitless.
By the first of November, 1865, I had
become so weak and feeble that I could
carcely stand alone, and, to all appear
ance, would soon die. At this time, (hav
ing read your advertisement,) my wifej
prevailed upon me to try your Bitters. A
bottle was procured, and, strange to s
soon commenced recovering. I h.
taken four bottles, anti am enjoying
.rood health now -^s could be expected foi
inc of my ago, (about ??ixty years.) 1
nave no doubt that ii was your Bitters!
done, under Divine Providence, that
.'fleeted this wonderful cure.
