This is the anaroby out of which he seeks to raise a new dynasty. The ruin of the South, the conquest and degradation of tbe North; these are the two planks of bit platform Frequently men are so sorely pushed as to be compelled to cry out loudly about the shortcomings of others in order to remove publio attention from their own crimes. Tbe UTiOune, ariven to the wall by the people, has been forced to this alternative, and malignantly niters falsehoods by wholesale. For ifearly three years Congress has been master of the situation. Tho whole work of re construction has been in its bands every veto of the Presidont being over thrown. It has conceived and adopted whatever measures it desired, and in no instance has the President refused to enforce them. He has even truckled when he should have resisted enforced Congressional infamy when he should ava spurned it let under Congres sionaJ guidanoe "reconstruction," like the apples of Sodom, has turned to ashes. Under Conrressional esidaace. the Southern States are "still without civil gove'.omcnt." Under Congressional auidanca " The bayonet overrule the bench, the privilege of habeas corpos is suspended, and justice is ad mm uteres at the drumhead I" Under Concretion al guidance " The fields are ejncwtlirateJ, the plow stands idle, the soul whoel u atill. and caunt starvation stalks (KroccV the land." Under Congressional guti- ance " Commerce is atoppea, jrcpertj is insecure, life is precaritwa." Uir Congressional guidaerw "Tke eociai faSric is shaken to Us b, an4 de.N43ioa hangs like a pall over the fairest portiotts of America." And the President is responsiW ! Of course I A I) arty must indeed b driven to the wall when compelled to charge the crime it committed nnbloslungly, and before high Heaven, npon him who woa its eternal enmity by protesting against them. sTonirre-ej an Sumree Cemrt. By the bill requiring a two-thirds ma jority of the judges or toe supreme Court necessary to the ralidity ol its do- cisions where tbe constitutionality oi any congressional action is concerned, the practical result ia that three-fonrths instead of two-thirds is required. If the court consisted of six or nine judges the case would be different The court con sisting of eight, five will not constitute two-thirds and six will be three fourths. The bill has passed the House, and be fore this probably also tbe Senate, i ne New York Herald on this subject, says "there are certain cases in which the "there are certain cases in wmcn iue Supreme Court ha. jurisdiction only with such exceptions acd under such r ... . i regulationg as the Congress shall make-' The-T are cases of appellate jurisdiction, and the Constitution itself specifies what they are. But in all cageg in which a State shall be a party,' ag in these recon struction laws, original jurisdiction, without qualification, is given simply and distinctly to 'the Supreme Court, lo the court; not to any given number of judges, ner in any required way, but plainly to the court. Ibese words are to he taken, of course, in their ancient, well understood, common law sense in which the court ' means a majority of the iudnes: and in this sense, in which these words have been understood ever since the Supreme Court had an exist noe. that court- will undoubtedly still understand them, and therefore will cer tainly pronounce the law unconstitu tional and refuse to be governed by it But there is one way in which Congress can get at the Supreme Court. Although the Constitution established the court and declared its powers, it left its organiza tion to Congress, and this was fixed by the statute of 1789. That law organizing the Supreme Court Congress can repeal, and can reorganise the court to suit its views. The constitution requires thai there shall.be a chief justice, which mplies, of course, that there shall be some associates; but as no number is called for, the court may be so organized that a majority would be two-thirds. Here would be an act quite in the revo lutionary spirit that prevails; but there would be one difficulty. Ibe f resident would have the appointment of the judges, which would not suit Congress so wpII. unless, indeed, having gone so lar, Congress would not be stopped by one more constitutional provision, and should by another law, going just a trifle further than the tenure of oHice law, place the appointing power somewhere else." - Ultssm, alias Hiram, Grant catches t on all hands, from the extreme radi cals as well as the democrats- The strut- tine Scott often brought himself into rid icule, but always foand the way out ot trouble. But Grant renders himself not only ridiculous as the imitator of Scott's "General Mum" foibles, but also oom mils blunders which are more-pernicious in their effects than crimes. lie has not the braia of Scott, though he may have the ambition. He has sneaked out of the War Department and the newsboys run through the streets exclaiming "all about the surrender of Gen. Grant." He has tried to conceal his thoughts by silence, but like tbe idiot that was sent out ana diecoveredr his vacillating acts have always exposed them. He has bow evi dently thrown hisnself into the hands of he Radicals And yet w hare a report that ha denies it We thiuli the plain conclusion is that he is weak and scarcely knowg what to do, being little more I atatnaman than b is o general.

And it will stamp infamy on the name of any mart to make such an affirm ation on his honor. He could be con victed, on proof of the facts, at his own home and among his own neighbors But Southern people, like all others, choose their own society. The respect able do not choose the vicious of their own citizens or of those who come from abrpad. And here then lies the exact truth men who come here from the North- to live and act as honorable gen tlemen, and ladies from tbe North who are and appear such, are welcomed, wen treated, and never heard to complain of any want of civility or neglect on the part of the Southern people. 1 hose who come here to deceive and affiliate with our negre population, have chosen their companions, and have no right to com plain if they shonld fail to reach tbe top round of tbe social ladder. If the North ern people will take for true no reports of this character except such as come from citizens whose good standing is known among themselves, they will have very little of this sort to believe against the South. These falsehoods come from men who have party designs, and are unscrupulous how they accomplish them, so they can personally escape exposure.

Notwithstanding it being the winter season ther are a great lanr strange Indians appearing and disappearing- Some come from Victoria and others from Fort Simpson, for what purpose it is not known. It is expected that as the Russians move the popula tion will become Americanized, and af fairs change for the better. In conse quence of the exorbitant prices de manded for game, and the knowledge of the fact that it is principally disposed of by the Indians surreptitiously for liquor, General Davis issued an order that whatever article of provisions tbe Indians wished to sell must be exposed the market place. Many Indians have been detected violating tbe order, were arrested and the liquor confiscated, whereupon the whole tribe would appear at headquarters and de mand release, and if refused hold a council of war.

The Herald 't Havana special of tha 22d inst says: Further news from Mexico state that a seat in tbe Supreme Uourt bas Deen offered to Senor Mortiaze Romero, who is still undecided whether to return to Washington as Minister or remain in Mexico. Congress seemed inclined to force the Ministers, Signors Lerdo and Detejado, to give up the State Department seals, or confer the extraordinary powers which Juarez had surrendered on Congress. Inauguration had again been authorized by CongreaB for a limited time. Rumors are afloat that an appropria tion of $140,000 will be made for the purpose of erecting a monument in honor of Mexican independence. Congress has lately been stirring up the English Com pany holding concession to finish the railway between the City of Mexico and Vera Cruz. A committee had been ap pointed to find out what means were used to secure the concession. An attempt has been made to kidnap Gen. Caravsjal, but he escaped, after killing the leader. Tbe Monitor Iiepublicano publishes an extraordinary alphabetical memoran dum book found in Maximilian s private cabinet bv the police. It abuses and ex poses every influential and famous man in Mexico. A document has been printed proving tbe complicity ot ex-Consul Ot- tenburg with the" late Emperor. . A Herald special from Havana says further Mexican advices state that Gen. Zuloaga has been reinstated to his civil rights. The contract to construct a railway to the Capital, via Jalepa, has been ratified. The weekly cotton receipts at Lobima are increasing. The Legislature at Nueva Leon has ordered the destruction of Blackfart, near Monterey. All degrading punishments have been abolished.
