Every taouditful man must be conscious of a eenseof despondency and, as it were, weariness it the slow progress of social re conciliation. It would be absurd to be im patient because the processes of reconstruc tion arc dilatory. They are necessarily complicated and require nice adjustment A broken locomotive can not be put on the track and run in a moment, even when all around are ready to work " with a will" to put it to rights. But it is the absence of this "will" that makes us heart sick. We see no bicts of it. and in thelecislative halls. where only practical measures can bo initia ted, less than anywhere else. If the spirit wnicn actuates some of thcKcpublican lead ers be carried out, it really seems as if the poor South was not to be allowed to sleep in its bloody grave. Modern history has hard ly a parallel to this perseverauceof liato, and we arc sure that General Butler, in his historical research for precedents of ven geance, found few like this. When tiie day of pacification dawned in England af ter a rebellion of nearly twenty years, its 1 1 1 11..J -C ! 1 iiaiiu reu wiiu tue uioou oi a xiing, anu Prelates and Poets on the Bcaflbld, and thou sands of brave men on fields of battle. Charles II., through his Chancellor, beggea Parliament to forget revenge, and try and restore " the old good nature and the old good humor." It was not very long after 145, that the createst of Encland s Hano verian statesmen practically reconciled the ancient antagonists by enlisting, unpar doned and unrepentant Highlanders in the English army. History is full of these in stances of politic gentleness, and in all cases where, on the termination of revolt or civil war, a different and harsher course was pursued and bloody penalties exacted, the judgment of history is an invariable one that such severity, such vengeance was a liuice mistake. Why is it different with us? This is a question which admits of many answers some derogatory to our Kor hu manity, and some which attribute this sad result to motives of a higher order. A con temporary writer sncakimr of the crusade of theuermans against Italy in thclGth century, uses thislanguages, which, changing "Eomc" to the "South," may be applicable now. " If we would understand," says he, " this fury of the conquerors in whose minds a certain set of ideas at that time prevailed, wc must recollect how Ilomo has been preached and written upon in the North. It was repre sented as a vast abyss of sin the men as villains from the lowest to the Inchest the business of all was deceit, theft and murder. r rom Itomc every evil nad sprung. And thus, while satiating themselves with blood and rapine, they believed a good work was being done for the welfare of Christendom, and the avenging of the North, 'ercr, hotc era this ice know docs the nature of man ex hibit itself more beastlike than when it becomes furious for the sake of ideas of the highest char acter." llm is tiie only theory ot good mo tive lor what wc see around us that we can frame. But we fear indeed, we know that lower impulses and harsher tempers arc at work to prevent peace, and among them we mm. one in individual vindiciivcncss, opera ting on an inflamed public sentiment, which through some strange anomaly has become suddenly submissive to individual control. It any one had foretold, a few years aco, that American legislative policy if not ad ministrative action, would be absolutely con trolled by one or two men of very perverse intellect and unpopular deportment, no one would have believed it. Jackson, and (Jlay. and Calhoun, and in a less degree, AVcbsicr used to have, in the natural, healthy state of the public mind, great personal mlltiencc and were followed bv bodies of men. Ihev bent the popular judgment. They did not twist it as they pleased whereas, now, one or two men, the public temper being heated to a fit degree, hammer and bend and twist it as they please, btrange and hideous as it is, it now seems that Mr. Stevens and Mr. Sumner are masters of mischief, and control the government. Start not at this, gentle reader! Itcvolt not at it, for it is the actual truth, and, what is worse, the spirit of the jNorth is willingly submissive to this guidance. There is nothing these men say, or demand, or do, that the fanatics of the North, or at least of a large part of the North, do not agree to. Has any one heard dissent? We certainly have not tnd who are these our rulers ? ho are these Duumvirs of mischief? Let us try and answer the question with fairness, and, as far as may be, without asperity. In what do they resemble and in what differ from each other? There is a word in the Eng lish language which, as applied to tree, or bush, or fruit, means " tasting of the soil," and this sort of flavor is clearly discernible here. They arc both New England men one from the flintv mountains of Vermont, the other from the originally barren but well-cultivated flats of Massachusetts. This accounts for the original twist common to both. But their careers had an early diver gence, one remaining steadily at home, well nursed, and petted, and brought to blossom early under Boston glass while the othor, a far more robust and vigorous being, aftar a sort ot nominal lite, sought a milder climate, and settled in a corner of Penn sylvania well suited to the whims and fantasies of a secluded and active intelli gence. JNow, we incline to think tins exodus from New England did some good, and that, in this latter instance, the migra tory is far better than the stationary Yankee. Here, in the seclusion of Gettysburg, Mr. Thaddeus Stevens not only gained his pro fessional position, which is quite a high one, but. cultivated, with singular assiduity, the crotchets which, in succession, have signal ized his career: They began mildly with ultra-Temperance and anti-Masonry, but those comparatively gentle nags were driven with whip and spur ; and those who recol lect Mr. Stevens in his day of prime, hurl ing fierce anathemas at poor lrec Masons and t-ivcrnkeepers, know that wonted fires now animate his ashes. These fanticisms ran their course, and Mr. Stevens accommo dated himself to "Know Nothingism," and the guardianship of Lancaster county stills with wonderful aptitude. Wc pass by his legislative career at Harrisburg, which, till the collapse of 1838, was the same despotic and overbearing one it now is. He was Straf ford over again, very "thorough," and brook ed no master near his throne. And here, at at the first heaving of the great anti-slavery surge, ono which he was destined to ride, wc leave him. All this time while our fellow-citizen, as we arc compelled to call him, was fighting his hard battle of life, and making fanati cism a sort of secretion, Mr. Charles Sumner was being dandled in the lap of Boston and yet not exactly so, for every one who knows what Boton once was before Horace Mann's statute stood before the State House, and Edward Everett had become a, literally, fribble, knows too there was an antagonism to pretenders like Sumner which was very formidable. But he was not easily daunted. He read, and he wrote, and he flattered. He reported Judge Story, and he annotated reports with Judge Story's assistance, ne was at hand to applaud and justify the gross imposture of thcPrigg case, and he early laid down ins plan ol lite as an anti-slavery politician. Fortune favored him ; Massa chusetts got tired of her gentleman and great man Webster was denounced and diet!, Choatc was thrust aside, and Win throjt superseded, and Charles Sumner, by a coalition which, to this hour, makes the cheek of a New England democrat tingle, becomes a senator, and carried his pack of common place books and written abolition speeches to Washington. Here, too, his luck did not forsake him. for Brooks earned him into martyrdom and a re-election, and to the evil elements which tiie mere process of intellect, such as his is, were stirring up, was added that of personal hatred of the South. And here wc come back to points of re semblance. It is our fixed conviction that a deep personal detestation of Southern men at this moment actuates these kindred and controlling spirits. But it is of a very dif ferent kind. Sumner's is more concrete than Stevens', in the same degree that being beaten is more irritating than having one's furnace burned. Mr. Stevens is a far more manly hater. He never talks of his wrorg , how ever he may feci them. He don't whins over his forge. He would not exhibit his bloody vestments at an evening party. Still, though in different degrees, the nate is there, and it is that hatred of these two men which, falling in sympathy with kindred ill-will outside gves them their influence in mU chief. Never, it should be borne in mind, could pciscaal Tindictivencss bo grafted on a more congenial stem than anti-slavery fanaticism. Its chief ingredient is ferocity, aud persecution of individuals is a method of justice for the wrongs they have done. And how long is this to last? How long is the legislation of the country to be thus directed and controlled by two men ? The President of the United Suites, elected by we same party wiucn these individuals pro pose to represent, is believed to favor re conciliation on fair and honorable terms. He has said emphatically ho wished the South back with its manhood unimpaired. A large body of the' Republicans in Con gress, would, if they dared, break this gall ing yoke, and yet 6uch is the force of in dividual will and such the demoralization and infirmity of all around, that the course of ruin runs on, and reconciliation is post poned as it it were a curse instead of a blessing. MEMPHIS ITEMS. From tho Commercial.! , Meittiiis Citv Railroad CoiirAJfY. We arc gratified to learn that this sterling com pany nave entered into contracts with some of the most experienced street railroad men in the United States for the immediate com pletion of ten miles of their track, and that me worK on Alain street will be commenced at once. Our citizens have come forward with commendable liberality and tiken stock ot the company to the amount of over four hundred thousand dollars, thereby insuring me immediate building ot the road. Atrocious Conduct of Foun Colored Soldiets. The Evening Ledger learns that on Friday four colored men, wearing the uniform of United States Soldiers, went into tne store ot jur. Li. iiocco, on Hernando street, below South, just outside the corpo rate limits in Fort Pickering, and while two ot them held pistols to the heads of Air. JBocco and Jiis .wife, threatning to shoot them ii iney surrea, tne otner two gathered up meats and confectionaries, beating a retreat as soon as satisfied, protected by a backward march of the two armed with pistols. This is a pretty state of things, and is likely to continue as long as colored soldiers aro al lowed to remain here. KIOT ON I1EAI.E STItET. Collision Between Policemen, Citizens nnl Nejrro Soldiers Two Negroes Itnclly Wounded. From tho Memphis Bulletin. J A not winch at one time threatened to end in very serious and fatal consequences, occurred just after dark last evening between some negro soldiers and white citizens, on Ueale street in the vicinity of tho market nousc. From the meagre information our report ers were enabled to gather at the scene of the disturbance, it would appear that a ne gro soldier was caught in the act of stealing some meat from stand No. 50, South market. and Avas ordered by the butcher, Mr. La- croix, to return it. with which very proper demand the rascal failed to comply, denying that he had any meat in his possession ex cept that which he had bought and paid for. The butch'.r then picked up a meat knife, it is asserted, and again demanded the return of the meat, at the same time making and uuvaucc luu.iru me negro as ii 10 cut mm. At this juncture a gentleman interposed anu told the butcher that it would be pru dent on lus part to keen quiet, as there were a number of negro soldiers in the immediate vicinity, and they would be sure to retaliate if any violence were ofl'ered to their com rade. I he advice was heeded, and the butcher dropped his knife, but had nosooner done so than Mr. James Ryan, market mas ter, stepped up, and with the butt ot ins re volver, dealt the negro a powerful blow, which inflicted a severe contusion on the tem ples, and felled the negro to the ground, in or next te an insensible condition. A crowd soon gathered a crowd of men, women and children, whites and blacks of high and low degree, and considerable ex citement ensued, during which the negro so far recovered the effects of the blow as to be enabled to stand on his feet, whereupon he M-as hustled away by the market master, going through Beale street towards Main, followed by a heterogenous crowd in which the African clement largely predominated. On reaching the grocery store of Alder man Bechtel, on Beale street, near Second, Mr. Ryan stopped and took the negro inside, either for the purpose of having the wound dressed or because his prisoner was unable to go any further. In the meantime information of the ar rest of their companion had been communi cated to some negro soldiers, and a body of them, variously estimated to number lrom thirtv to a hundred, all rirmral with mnskpt- and bayonets, started in pursuit of the mar ket master and his pnsoncr. Arriving at .Mr. Kechtel s store, several of them attempt ed to enter, but were ordered to keep back by Mr. Kyan and several policemen and cit izens who were with him. They persisted. however, and Mr. Ryan, fearing violence at their hands, discharged his revolver amorn? them, the shot taking effect in the head of one of the number, inflicting a severe but I not dangerous wound. He then rushed into the street, and the negroes, having recovered their senses, rushed after him, discharging a dozen or twenty shots, all of which, eingu lar to relate, proved harmless, so far as per sonal injury is concerned, notwithstanding that the street was full of people. Tho darkness favored Mr. Ryan. He ran diagonally across Beal street, in the di rection of the bayou bridge, and became lost to the sight of his pursuers. Several citizens who were among the spectators, lcaring violence, sought satety in tho gro cery store of Mr. Hollywood, near bt. Mar tin street, telling the proprietor to close up his doors at once, as a formidable riot was in progress without, and cither himself or his property might be injured, Hr. Holly- wood hastened to obey, and (his visitors having taken flight through the rear door) hid no sooner got his doors closed and locked, than the infuriated mob, who had seen the persons enter the store, came up and began to hammer away at the outside. breaking in the panels of tho door and lantity of window glass. Moved by reats of violence, Mr. Hollywood threw open his doors, and the mob poured in, de manding the whereabouts of the market master, and threatening to burn the house if his place of concealment were not dis closed. Mr. Hollywood being unable to give the desired information, was then or dered to produce a light, taking which sev eral of the negroes descended to the cellar in search of the fugitive, but soon returned, satisfied that the market master was not on the -premises. The mob then returned to the store of Alderman Bechtel, which they entered, and while some devoted themselves to tiie care of their wounded companions. others began to plunder, and carried away a quantity ot provisions. It was then suggested to burn the market master's house, and the crowd moved up Beale street, hooting and brandishing their arms. At this moment intelligence of the disturbance was conveyed to the police sta- inn nnrl fiftrwin i r (iTMirtr tnintiTM Tn(ri Capt. Grey, of the night police, with a squad of policemen, arrived at the scene, but the excitement had almost entirely subsided. and soon after perfect order was restored, the negroes having retired not, however, without first threatening the officers of the law, in case they made any hostile demon stration. JSo arrests were made. The foregoing arc the facts as far as could be gleaned, and are believed to be nearly if not quite correct W hen the disturbance be gan people in the neighborhood closing their houses and stores, immediately sought shelter from the danger, and consequently arc not fully jxistcd in the particulars. I ins occurrence has demonstrated the alarming fact that the citizens of 3IemphLs, unprotected as they arc, arc in imminent danger of suffering violence and death at the hands of negroes, incited by the fanatical teachings of radicals to outbreaks of the most fearful character. There are no white troops here, and the police force is barely sufficient to take care of themselves, to say nothing of a city with a population of at least 20,000 inhabitant-'. It is hoped that the lesson will not be lost upon the powers that be. A Break trom Iryino Block. At a late hour on Friday night, thirteen colored soldiers and civilians who were confined in Irving Block for various offenses, made their escape by digging a tunnel under the rear of the building. An alarm was given by the corporal of the guard who discovcreif the break almost immediately after its occur rence, and pursuit was made, but the rascal had made good their escape except one, who having a chain and ball attached to his leg was speedily recaptured at a short distance from the prison. At this writing, none of tne others nad been arrested. SOUTHERN NEWS. Northern Lm migration Desired. The Northern press reproduce from the Rich mond Times a long editorial on immigration, from which we extract the following: An opinion still prevails at the North, in certain quarters, and among a certain class of individuals, that immigration to and resi dence in the South, unless in numbers large enough for protection, would be very haz ardous to the lives and limbs of Northern men. A correspondent of one of the New lork papers invites immigration to the oi ler of irginia, but very amusingly cau tious his people "to come in sufficient strength for their safety." Now all this is simply bosh and nonsense .Neither the people of the valley of Virginia, nor oi any otner portion oi ino cxratn, arc such fools and savages as those idle and vi citfus representations would imply. There was a time when it was the interest and the wish of the Southern people to exclude Northerners. This was when slavery ex isted, and when every Northerner was re garded as an Abolitionist, and many of them as John Brown's in disguise. But slavery no longer exists, and with it had departed that necessity, which, as an instinct of self preservation, imposed a jealous and distrust f X- .1. rr, r,.,- . oi noniicrn men. inc ooutn now needs and desires nothing more than immigration to supply her with capital and labor, and to develop her resources.

Whoever brings labor and caniLil to the South now, no matter where from, will be welcome, if he is honest and behaves him self. jNobody from the North need be afraid ot being tomahawked, scalped and roasted. Wc have no cannibals. among us who hunrr- cr and thirst after the flesh and blood of Northern men. The thirst is now forgreen backs. In this connection, wo copy the following letter from the Cincinnati Enquirer: Persecutions Ill-Jnilc-eil PoHcj-. Montgomery. Ala.. November 29. No one knows who has not been a resident of the South what we are suffering. Insults. petty tyranny, abusive language personal assaults and robbery are ot lrequcnt occur rence. It is no uncommon thine for asnuad of soldiers to assault and beat an inoffensive citizen without the slightest provocation. and no notice be taken of it. Even the poor negro is roooea ot his chicken monev. as hr returns to his house, by the straggling Fed eral soldiers who infest tho suburbs of our cities and towns. At some points the com manding officers are more strict as is the case here at this time, and we go about with some degree of safety ; but at Sclma there is a perfect reign of terror. Citizens dare not venture out at night, and arc in great dan ger from the drunken soldiers during the day. There seems to lie less magnanimity in the Northern character than I expected to see exhibited, and it is retarding the res toration of good feeling. When the surren der took place, our people regarded it as a defeat, and feeling that they had done all that manliness and honor required, were willing to yield the poinls at issue in favor of the North, and return cheerfully to their position in the Union, and receive once more the Constitution of the United States, and the laws in pursuance thereof, as their rule of action. But such has been the bitterness exhibited by the North, in the total disre gard of their personal and political rights, that a more bitter feeling exists now than in tho early spring. A swarm of thcivcs. in the shane of offi cials and officers, who have robbed both the Government and the people, have been sent among as, and have added to the dissatis faction. It has been no uncommon occur rence for a military officer, with a train of wagons, to go to a planter's house, place a guard around it, with orders to shoot him if he attempts to leave it, and his cotton hauled to the steamboats sent for the purpose and shipped off. Three hundred thousand bales of cotton would not be an overestimate of the quantity stolen in Alabama alone. The planter lm no chance to traen it nn. I h? knows none of the parties, and if he were tc complain to the authorities, sonic charge wouia oc irumpcu up against him, and some interested Provost-Marshal would nrrest him and put him in prhson, where he would be likely to remain until he paid his way out Our people think it very singular that in a Republic the bayonet should be used to lorce an amendment to the Constitution, mid many are indisjiosed to sustain it on thatac- count, regarding it as the requirement of tvrannv. and a loss ot spir-rr-aiu-rt to nohl in the demand. There arc others who arc anx ious to get rid of the military, and be restor ed to their civil rights, and they arc willing to yield the point, hoping that no further iCTiuiiciui'iiia niu uv mailt:. j.uu tXMiui is now helpless, and at the mercy of the North It it beware how it continues to use ib its power. Alio time may come when it may need help, and, it may be, will call in vain. Many Southerners have already bought houses in other countries, and there will be a more general hcgira without a material change in the policy of the Government. Although instances exist of destitution and ruined fortunes, our people are pecuniarily better off than I feared they would be after the vandalism practiced by Wilson and his creWj who robbed every house they came to, and 111 many instances hanged up old men by the neck to make them tell where their valuables were secreted. Mr. Hvde, an old man of seventv-fivc years, was tied to his bed-post! and fire applied to his house. He jicrishcd in the flames. He was an old jeweler, of the firm of Hyde & Goodrich, New Orleans. The Northern papers teem with instances of cniclty to negroes. I sin cerely believe that there arc twenty negroes maltreated by the Federals where one is ill- used by a Southerner. The forbearance of our people is marvelous. The negroes are encouraged to bo independent and insulting. and have in many instances murdered whites in com blood. Not one in five arc punished and it is in such cases our people sometimes take the law in thoir own hands. James Andrew shot a negro who had a stolen horso and attempted to escape with him. For this he was sentenced by a court martial to ten years' imprisonment in a dungeon. He is consumptive, and, on account of a hemor rhage, was paroled for sixty days, but before the time had half expired was remanded back. The same day he received a proposi tion that if he would pay five hundred dol lars he would be permitted to remain for tho sixty days, or on payment of five thousand dollars would be released altogether. Ho finally compromised on three hundred dol lars, to remain at large until his wife re turned from Washington, whither she had gone to procure a pardon. President John son called tor the record of the trial, but it couiu not be lound. lie was sentenced on negro evidence, against that of one of the most respectable gentlemen in the commu nity. Ilia pardon was granted by the Pres ident In Atlanta, on the other hand, real o-tatc has very vastly increased upon the valuation before the war, and the influx of population lrom every quarter is unprecedented. A lot which was bought a few months ago for $400 cannot now be purchased for 10.000. North ern correspondents, we notice, allude to the same facts, and state that no city North or South exhibits more energy. The Augusta Constitutionalist says the small pox is on the increase among the colored jiopulation, and is, for tho most part, confined to that class. TiiK Savannah Herald gays that Mr. G. B. Lamar. Sr.. and O. B. Lamar, Jr., were arrested in Savannah, in obedience to orders from department headquarters, and arc now confined in the Provost Guard Rooms. Tlw charge upon which thcc gentlemen were arrested, is an attempt to bribe the Treasury Agents who have charge of captured cotton. The Watchman says that the country is full of rumors in reference to negro insurrec tions in different portions of the State. We know that not much credit is due these ru mors, and do not know whether the ignorant creatures intend to do anything wrong; whether they have acted on their own mo tion, or have liccn prompted by bad white men. Thelacts, as lar as icarneu, arc as 101- lows: For ten days or two weeks past there has licen considerable excitement in Morgan. Giecn. Walton, and portions of this and Jackson counties, in reference to an appre hended rising of the negroes. A number of negroes were arrested in Madison, on Friday last, charged with being concerned in tho proposed insurrection, and were taken by the United States authorities to Augusta, for trial. Two companies of Union troops left this post last Friday morning for Washington, Wilke3 county, it is understood for the pirposc of suppressing an outbreak there. In Walton and Jackson numbers of negroes have been committed to jail, who are implicated in the proposed insurrection.

From tho same paper wo extract the fol lowing: .Not the least rcmarkablo circumstance connected with the return of proiierity to the city is the readiness with which most of the old inhabitants who were out in the Con federacy, resume their former places in busi ness and society. Thegcneral apprehension at the time of the bant up was, that all of the past generation were done for, and would never regain their feet Judging by what has been the consequence of past revolutions, tec supposition was bv no means lacking in foundation. Never before in history havo a people so readily readjusted themselves, after having liccn so widely scattered. The four years have already been forgotten, and the lengthy barrel-face which was formerly so often seen on our streets, predicting evil clays bciorc us, has almost disappeared.

So that when we touch uHn the subject of the Fenians wc fee 1 much like a man going out in a hail storm without either hat or umbrella, and realize, as tne locals say of a man aliout to be hanged, ''the awful consciousness of cur situation." But though it may be necessary to purchase a cofiiir and select" our btirving ground, things very repugnant to us when aooui to trean dangerous ground, we cannot help criticising, in a fraternal style, with the most fraternal feeling and in a Pickwickian sense, a recent Fenian move in the city of New York, of which we have had no telegram as to the effect it produced on the " Canuchs, " or the Queen's beef-eaters across the water. Wo nl lude to the recent littlo row among the Fe nians in Gotham, where the Fenian Senate lenoiinccd the tseue of the bonds of the Iri.-!i Republic under Col.

But, of course, Colonel O'Mahoney and Mr. Killian snap their lingers at this judgment. To learn the truth of the disturbance, and get at the bottom of the row, the N9W York, II orif s reporter visited Col. O'Mahoncv's headquarters, in Union Square, on Saturday.
