"WASHINGTON ,EW AND RUMORS From the various dispatcher to tho associated press, wo make up tho following summary: The Li w of I'ardox is being discussed some what in Congressional circles, and an on ilil prc- ails that an ossailt is to bo made in Radical 'ongrcssional quarters on that portion of tho President's message which claims tho power of restoration on tho ground of tho law of pardon. fioxno gentlemen of note assort a doubt as to rhctbcri pardon can soleore a judicial sen ienco against a party convicted of crime; and it is gucd that tho President has nono of those :hts of pardon that are obtained by kingly pcr- Uvo utidcr the common law. " A bill having special reference to tho prospec tive trial of Jefferson Davis has been reported from tho Senate Committee on the Judiciary. It provides thai no person thall bp considered in competent to serve as a juror, by reason of having funned or expressed on opinion on tho matter to be submitted to tho jury of which ha may be a member, from an Investigation founded on public rumor, statements in tho public journals, or the common history of tho times. The bill also pro vides that the final judgments of Circuit Courts of the United States, and of tho District of Colum bia, may bo submitted to tho United States Su preme Court for approval ,or rejection, so far as ' jiucstions of law are concerned, and that the Su premo Court may render n'final decision, or return Vtbo case to the Circuit Court to bo tried over again. f Tho Senate Committco on tho District of Col ombia, hnvo authorized their Chairman to report la bill giving the negroes tho right of suffrage in Itbo District. The postponement of tho House- bill for negro suffrage in the District until tho 10th of January, 'nai rceurcd at tho request of Western men, to rive the Stoto Legislatures, now in sosgin, or to meet in January, an opportunity for expression on the subject. It is thought that tnot of the Western Legislatures will Instruct against the measure. The Comir.ittc on Appropriations nro consid ering tho Miscellaneous Appropriation Dill which failed last session. Tho Committee aro preparing anew bill, and nro In conference with tho Secre tary of tho Treasury in regard to items contained in the old bill, Tho committee havo got nu econ omical fit, nd aro cutting down tho estimates at , aterribloratc. The deficiencies of last year and the proscnt fiscal year will bo embodied in ono bill. j The Committco on the Judiciary of tho Houso jbavo agreed to report a resolution to provido a ' constitutional uuiendmcnt to bar tho payment of 1 tho rebel debt. A proposition for the transfer of negroes from jVirginlato Florida has been submitted to (Icncral Howard, and will probably bo laid before Con- grc- . A Senatorial caucus was held on l'Jth after the I Senate adjourned, fortho purpose of determining I tho perrons who nro to compose tho six members Anf the Scnato on the joint Committco on Reeoii- nrtructlOn. After considerable dclmto it was do Acitlcd to nlluw tho President of tho Senate to J! nrrnnge tho Committee. Several suggestions were submitted as to who ought to bo tho Chair man, and it was almost uuanimously agreed that Senator Fesenden was the proper person. The Committee will bo announced to-morrow morn ing. j ' Charles A. Dana, formerly of the Net- York i Tribune, now of tho Chicago Jtrjmllintn, is in Washington, working for tho New York Collec- torsuip. His paper is violently opposed to tho Prer idciit's reconstruction policy, and It is said to bo pecunlaiily n great failure, and that ho is anx ious to get out from under tho load. The New York delegation, Senators nnd Representatives, have, after frequent conferences, tailed to concen trate their forces in favor of any particular candi date fur tho New York CollcclorFhip. It has re solved Itself into a free fight, the. result of which will bo that tho President and Secretary McCul loch will not consult Miy of tho politicians when bo comes to mako tho appointment. Mr. Raymond took notes of Steven's recent speech, and rose to reply, and was fairly entitled tti tho floor; but Wasbbume, of Illinois, who was In the clmir, entertained a motion tht tho com mittee rise, which prevailed, and thus cut Ray mond off. During Stevens' speech all tho mem bers of tho lloiiHO gntheicd mound him and lis- ' tened Intently to his remarks. Henry Winter Davis, (Icncral Logan, nnd n number of Senators formed a portion of tho group. It was fully re garded as the grcut Ley-noto Unit sounds the Radical policy. The President has approved tho sentence o n military court holdinUcorgia,whcreitiacoloref man called Isaac was sentenced to bo bung fur killing bis former master. It appears Isuao ran i away from bis master and joined the Union army; I after the war he returned, and learning that his master had said that if the negro ever came back bo would shoot him. Isaac deliberately went'to his master's Louse, after night, raised the window, nnd shut him dead with a rifle. A resolution retting forth tho necessities of strictly requiring the test oath of lNli, In nil cases of Federal appointment to office in Southern States, passed tho House to-day by n largo ma jority. President Johnson has ordered Gov. lloldcnto prohibit the Sheriffs of North Carolina from exe cuting the provisions of the revenue law passed by the Slate Convention, which levies taxes on business transacted as far back as Jan. 1, lSuVi, when a large portion of tho Stato was within our military lines nnd' all business was subjected to military taxes. j iiie nousp passci on tlic lMli, without ilciiate, I a bill reported by the Chairman of tho Lincoln Testimonial Committee, to pay to Mrs. Lincoln lO5,""0, one year's salary of the Utc President.

About ten o'clock Governor Corwiu entered the rapper room ond took a seat upon a sofa, but did n ;t rartake of refreshments of any kind. Here againhwa surrounded by admiring friends, at about 10' j o'clock, when ho had just concluded one of his Mexicau stories, and when tho ring of laughter from his auditors bad scarcely ceased, he uddenly turned to the gentleman at his side, and raid in a cble voice, " its too warm here, accom panying Ihc words with a convulsive movement of Ins hand, as if trying to catch hold of something for rurpt'rt.

In accordance with tho resolve of the city nu tbirities, the test question was presented on Thursday as to negro suffrage. About 7.OH0 votes were recorded against and only about 75 in favor of thus extending the franchise.

In the IIoiiRC of Ilcprcfecntativcs at Wash ington, on the 18th inst., the Hon. Thadctis Stevens, of Pennsylvania, delivered a speech, in "Committee of the whole on the State of the Union," which the reader will find in our columns this morning. It is seldom we meet with a Congressional effort so pointed, fb direct, so plain and so full of meaning. Whilst we sincerely regret that any citizen of the Union should have felt called upon to declare the sentiments and principles em bodied in this parliamentary effort, we are gratified that one member of Congress, com bining both intellectual ability and convic tions of judgment, Liable toapprize the South ern people, and thepcoplcofthcUnitcd States, of the views and purposes of that class known as radicals, in earring forward the government and dealing with those questions most vitally affecting the future of a common country. Mr. Slovens is a gentleman of mature ex perience, and beyond tho age usually allot ted to men. While he disclaims speaking for or committing others, he represents the opinions of a very largo and formidable part of the people of the Northern section of the United States. It? will be seen, from a careful reading of his utterances, that he takes issue with every thing that has been done by the President and by the lately re bellious Stiles, towards a fair and complete restoration of interstate relations under the constitution, and propounds with great clearness the views of those, who, to carry out a fanatical feeling, want now to produce a practical severance if the Union. The South is represented as dead, and incapable of resurrection except by the aid of a higher jiower. "Tiie.future condition of the con quered power depends on tho will of the .conqueror." They must come in to the Union as new Slates, or remain as con quered provinces." "To prove that they arc anil havo been out of the Union, for all practical purpo-c-i, and aro now conquered subjects tothe absolute disposal of Congress," is an easy task with him. " I know," says he, "( f no arrangement bo proper for them, as territorial governments. They can learn the principles of negro freedom and ca tho fruit of foul rebellion under such gov ernments." These arc some of the views of tho radical representative speaker, on the subject of constitutional government. Hut, not content with stating what he re gards as the proper courso of action which the President ought to have pursued, in the equally important and critical cnTcrgeneies in which he was Providentially called to exercise his present office, ho assail", both directly and indirectly, every principle which that functionary, for the good of the whole country, !has sought to civ Kraft upon its lwlicv. Wc cannot on this occasion enter into the broad field of dis ctKsion which is thus opened up. Nor can wc undertake to cxjiomj tho fallacies of the speaker, in tiien&o, or defend tho amply mag nanimous policy, first of General Grant and Sherman on the occasion of tho surrender of the Confederate armies, and secondly, of Prexidcut Johnson's subsequent course. Wc may say, however, that the speech to which wc are now referring embodies all the prin ciples, in one idiapc or other, which the American people will be called upon to de cide, in the various steps towards a complete restoration of the Union of our fathers. It is true, that as a politician, the first step which Mr. Stevens took in reaching his iiro-ient position, to tdt, the advocacy of universal confiscation of property in the South, was repudiated everywhere alike by nil parties ; but, still, it is apparent that he was not greatly discouraged thereby, and is now only intent tiKn making anew a Gov- incut that will come fully uptohisstandard. If he succeed, and the result answers his exicctations, he will be called great for all time. If he fails, (of which thcro seems to be no sort of doubt) in proportion to his approximation to success will his name bo accursed bv both black and white. Tin: si'iiti:Mi: itr.xiir. The Nashville Difjwtch copies into its cdi- tarial column a Washington letter favoring tho appointment of llottAci: Mayxaiii) to the Supreme Judgeship, nmdo vacant by the death of Judgo Cutnm. If it is the purpose of tho President to make a selection from Tennessee, there are nt lenst a thousand men in the State more suitable, the appointment of any one of whom would be more acceptable, than that of Maynard. Of that large and respectable number we will mention only Judge Samuel Milligan, Judge Win. F. Cooner, Judge Ilobt. J. McKinnoy, Judge A. O. P. Nichol son, Judge Connally F.Trigg, Judge Win. II.

We are pleased to find him in good health, and hopeful, even of Tennessee, which seems destined to a harder lot than any of her Southern sisters.

It is a little singular that those, who, during the war, wore most anxious to rvstoro the Union, should le the mot reluctant, now that tho Avar is over, to recognize the fact of ts restoration. 31 EXT. At a recent meeting of the " reconstruc ted" citiicn8 of Fayette county, Tennessee, held at Somcrville, the annexed preamble and resolutions were adopted, as expressive of their sentiments at that time. They were drafted and reported by General Jonx L. T. SxnED, and arc in harmony with the manli ness, frankness and good sense which have always characterized his deportment in public, as well as in private affairs. Wc regret that they did not reach 113 sooner : WiiKRrAs: The people of Fayette county, who' with arms in their lumis have participated on the part of the Southern States of America in tho lato war of the sections; anil those who have sympathized with their Southern brethren in their vain but magnificent struggle for a separate nationality, in mass-meeting assembled, desire to make some public manifestation of tho feelings with which they meet tho inexorable fortune of war, and as citizens to declare their intentions' for the future. They desire peace; a restortion of civil government and social order : and as far as may be, a return to the ancient fraternal relations between the States of tho Union, ss they 'existed prior to the inauguration of the insane sectional strifo which begun thirty years ago, and has cul minatcd in n horrid war, a scourge alike to tho American people, and a dark blot upon the chron icles of civilization ; therefore, jfc lletnked, 1. WJiile we do not ndmfllsMc justice of the war which has been waged tjffinst us. or tho disruption of our social fabric as its incident ; nhd while wo aro not yet so wcll-imbueil with Christian grace as to kiss the hands which have so dreadfully smitten us yet wo accept the stern award not ns a dispensation of constitutional jus tice, but as a species of martial equity recognized among the nations, anil to which, as the vanquish ed party, we are bound to submit with such grace ai it vouchedsafed unto us;anli c pledge ourselves to do what wc can to forget the past, to obej" the laws of tho land, and to erect by our conduct upon the wreck and desolation around us, ! i new and we trust a permanent fabric of social and national prosperity. Z. Wo recognize in thechanged relations of the two races in the South u source of infinite trouble and vexation to both, unltus the Government and the people co-opcrato at once for its just and intelligent regulation. HI. I'or a people unfit for social or civil equal ity with tho Anitlo-Saxon unprepared for the freedom for which they had not asked, and which has been thrust upon them; mindful of their an cient fidelity as slaves to uj and our fathers from feneration to generation, we invoke the most kindly feelings of the white nice, deprecating all antagonism between them, and will favor all ef forts for their advancement in intelligence and virtue, and endeavor to deal humanely and justly .withthemin thcirsphereas laborers. IV. We gratefully accept the policy of Andrew Johnson for a restoration of the Union of the States as characterized by tho highest stamp of states manship, patriotism, integrity, and magnanimity, lie is entitled to the gratitude ofthc wtiolcSouth, nqd tho cordial co-operation of the real friends of fraternity and union everywhere. 5. We deeply sympathise with the prisoner. Jefferson Davis, in his misfortunes and his suffer ings. If he has been guilty of legal treason against the Government, as tho representative man of the Southern movement, then arc we nil traitors. And as a great and magnanimous gov ernment has exaitcd itself in the estimation of tho civilized world, by proclaiming a general amnesty to the mas.-es, we invoke still another exercise of the Godlike virtue of forgiveness for him. 0. Recognizing the fact as we do, and as he does, , that tlio right of a .State to secede from the Union, though an open question which has never, under our theory, been adjudicated by the judicial tri bunals of the country, has nevertheless been de finitively nnd foi ever settled by the arbitrament of t lie sword: but suggesting in his behalf that if tho opinions which have prompted his conduct be n national sin, he cbiimsto have sinned in fellow ship with many of the fathers of the Government in whose school of polities ho was educated, and by the lamp ofwho-e counsels he has been guided, wo respectfully submit that wc can see no good that can come from tho shedding of his blood ; but declare our belief that his restoration to liborty with our great leaders will not fall far short of working a magical cure to the discaso ofjiliena tion and estrangement which now afflicts the body politic. Itciuiullcnii Corruption tn Xcir York City. The New York correspondent ofthc Louis ville JJcmora, in speaking of the late city election, says : " I have it on authority I am not disposed to dispute, that the Kcpublicans sjicnt two hundred thousand dollars in their recent attempt to elect Marshal O. Hoberts Mayor of this city. Just before the closing of tho jkiIIs on election day $15, in many cases, was paid for single votes. ' Jim' Irving, the notorious pugilist, received $5,000 alone, the evening previous, to be used among tho ' dangerous classes,' with whom he is a re cognized leader. The report is, however, that ' Jim' invested $1,000, and placed the balance in bank subject to his own order. That was smart for Jim. It was a point with tho 'Loyal Lcgabtendcr' aristocracy to 'carry' New York city, and hitch it, along with Philadelphia and Boston, to the car of Illack Republicanism ; they thought greenbacks alone could do the job, but the result of the election showed how wretchedly their corrupt scheme miscarried." . It is gratifying to know that the cormp tionistswere defeatedand that Hoffman Democrat was elected. Tin: Macon (Ga.) Telegraph has recently changed hands, Wm. A. Heid & Co., becom ing the Proprietors. J. li. Sneed, for many years of the Savannah J'epubh'can, and S. lloykin, long connected with the press of Macon, nrc the editors. Under such man agement the paper cannot fail to tako rank among the foremost of Southern Journals. Stkves'S in Congress calls the South a dead carcass. If he he had taken his gun and knapsack, he might havo contributed something to bring about that state of rf- fairs. Grant says that ho is mistaken in tho fact, and it may be reasonably supposed these words will hardly convict Grant of lying. Pkksident Johnson-, General Grant and General Sherman, whose hearts for the past four or five years have lcc:i fixed upon sav ing the Union, are persuaded that their object has been obtained. Mr. Stevens and his coadjutors don't think so. The one fights the battles, and the other makes the speeches, That is tho difference. Tin: Legislature of Mississippi sent a del egation to Washingtoh to petition the Presi dent for the pardon of Jeff. Davis. The Legislature of Tenncvcc proposes to hang him. Hut a majority of the people of Ten ncsce, who arc as true to the Government as arc their legislators, agree with the dele gation from Mississippi. JoiiNSOXVii,T.r, Ti'x. A correspondent of the Chicago 'Times has the following notice of the abdve named place : "This place was I mav sav with truth. brought into being by the events of the war ; but unlike other towns of similar origin, it is not an ephemeral growth that withered and died wlienallgovernment patronage was with drawn, and when it was no longer needed as a Government depot.

Heing at the ncnu 01 navigation in low water, goods in tended for Northern Alabama ami Georgia and Hast Tennessee, are re-shipied here and sent forward by rail to Nashville at much less expense and more cxeditiousJy than by any other route. Daily lines of packets are run between this town and Paducah, Cairo and St. Louis, each of those three cities vicing with the other for our trade. Apparently more Southern trade will go to St. lxmisthan in formcryears,and it will require but little exertion for Chicaeo to secure a fair proportion.

Nor will sectional prejudices ever "more prevent the Southern peonle from seeking the cheapen and best markets." The Chicago Times, alluding to the ship load of New England females about to sail fir the Pacific coast, as emigrants, gives somebody the following dig in the ribs : Tho tears which have been shed in the North over the sundering of negro families, is sullictent to lurnisii a perpetual water jiower, if collected, for the manufactories of all Massachusetts.

Mis sissippi mill Tennessee Ioprlsliilnresi. pccit.I Correspondence of the Union A- American. VAsnixcToy, December 19, 1SG3. Congress will adjourn to-morrbw lor some weeks. What the object of this movement is, it fs left to conjecture. By some it is thought that the purpose is, ou the part of the Badi icals, to prepare for a vigorous assault upon the President's plan of restoring the Union, by the time of the meeting in January. Otheni think that they wish to consult their constituents and that a majority of them will come back prepared to sustain the President's policy. I am inclined to think that a majority of the present Badicals in tend to maintain their position and sooner or later to attack the President and his res teration policy. I do not think, however, they will be able to defeat, though they may delay, the wise measures adopted by Presi dent Johnson for re-uniting the broken fragments of a once great country. There are Bcpublicans in Congress who will not sustain the wild and disorganizing bchcmes pf Sumner, Wade and Stevens, and I hope they will be powerful enough to de feat some of their plans. I am satisfied that the radicals, now in Congress, do not repre sent the true feeling of a majority of the Northern people, and whenever their plans arc fully developed, they will be condemned almost as much at the North as at the South. Sumner, Wade and Stevens would place the negro, ignorant and uneducated as he is, up on a footing of perfect equality with the white man. Such is the tendency of all the measures introduced by them into Congress. The would give the negroes the right to vote and sit upon juries, and, if this was ac complished, they would next propose to al low them to hold Federal and State offices, to bo Senators and Bepresentativcs in Con gress and the State Legislatures, and also to occupy positions on the Supreme and Cir cuit Court Benches of the Federal and State Governments. This is the inevitable result of their doctrines, and such is in fact the substance of the bills introduced by the radicals in Congress, when plainly expressed. Perfect equality before the law means not only the right to vote, but also to hold office and to enjoy all the social advantages en joyed by white people. I am not prepared to believe that the people of the Northern States endorse the doctrine of the political and social equality of the negro or that they yet havo such "faith in man" as makes them think there is no difference between a white man and a negro. The radicals are using every effort to destroy the President's policy. They are fighting at present from behind masked batteries. Some few of them such as Stevens in Congress, and Henry Win ter Davis at home, have the boldness to at tack him and his policy. Many of them fight very shy, and whilst they " draw near with their lips, their hearts arc far from him." For the first time in the history of this, or perhaps any other country, has the Chief Justice of the highest court in the land, be came the head of a political party. It is understood that Judge Chase is guiding and directing the policy of the Badicals, and his conduct the other night at the Capital, when he, Henry Ward Beecher, and a certain ne gro preacher, officiated together before a mingled audience of white and black women, in lovely confusion, goes to sus tain this view. He wishes to give nractical demonstration of his negro equality doctrine, and if he could, by any iossibility, be made President of the Uuited States perhaps one of his first acts would be to appoint what ha calls a colored gentleman, alias a negro, to bo Chief Justice of the United States, to show his "faith in man." I do not believe these men can succeed, nor do I believe tho enlightened sentiment of the Northern peo pie will sustain them in their wild revolu tionary schemes. Thcv resemble more the men who liad control of affairs in tho davs of the French Involution, than any that his tory speaks of. The same thirst for blood, the same cry for liberty, equality and frater nity, which were the catch-words of Robes pierre and Danton, arc those now used by ouinuer, ,-jievens nnu auc. Xliey arc in reality the worst enemies, not only of the white race, but also of the poor negroes them selves. Thepeoploof theSouth, with but few exceptions, and all the good and true men of the North, without regard to former distinc tions arc anxious to confer upon the negroes such rights and privileges of person and pro perty as will secure to them the fruits of their labor and the protection of their persons. Every attempt to go farther than this at pre sent by conferring upon tho negro race ioli- tical and social power and privileges has a tendency to injure him, by arraying against him the prejudices, if they may be so called, of the laboring white men, who must and will control this country. If these Badical fanatics are really friendly to the negroes and arc not using him merely as si politiuil in strument for their own advancement, let them beware how they bring him liolitieally in conflict with the laboring white men of the country, both North and South. It is because I am the earnoit and true friend of the negro thht I am so much opposed to the mad schemes of the men who now scqm to have control of both branches of Congress. The Legislatures of Tennessee and Mississippi have failed, as is the opinion of most all Southern men here, to give the negroes such privileges as they ought to have, and which aro necessary to their protection, and which would not be injurious to any one. The right of a negro to testify in court before a white jury who could and would judge of his ab$ty as a witness, it seems strange should Iks opposed by any one Tho right to purchase proer ty and to testify in courts must and ought to lc given to the negroes, and the sooner it is done the better it will bo for all parties. The right to hold office or to vote stands upon different grounds. Let the South be calm and quiet, develop their own resour ces, repair their mined fortunes by industry, economy and lalmr. Trust in the President nnd the good sense of tho Northern people, and all will yet work for good. A New Extkki'kise. The proprietors of the Montgomery, Alabama, Advertiser are de sirous of engaging the services of a number of ladies to be taught the business of compo sition in their printing office. In Boston, and other cities of the North, this work is done by ladicx, with efficiency and neatness equal to that of the best male compositors. It is work peculiarly fitted to the delicate fingers of the female, and the remuneration exceeds that which a woman can cum in al most any other employment. An indnstri ous, swift moving comjiositor, can set at a moderate calculation, six thousand cms per day, and the price per thousand is sixty cents. A tuition of two to four weeks dura tion will enable an intelligent woman to set enough tyjics to pay hor board, and even- day's subsequent practice will increase tne quantity of work she can accomplish. There is no more honorable employment, and the proprietors pledgo thcmsclvc to sec that the strictest order and mutual respect shall be maintained in their office under this new system. . Cieneral-tlrant. - - , Mobile Register and Advertiser. General Grant grows upon U3 in his char acter of a wise man and conservative states man. From the moment that lie over whelmed General Lec with the irrcsistable force )f numbers, wielded by his indomita ble will and untiring perseverance, he drop ped the character of a militarv conqueror and all Ids utterances have been those of a patriot and statesman, who saw that the aword had finished its appointed work, and the policy of conciliation was the dutv of the hour. The honorable terms he award ed to General Lee and his veterans, who had opposed him with determined and bloody resistance, struck a chord of sym pathy in the Southern breast, the intonation of wliich was in exact proportion to the sin gular rarity of deeds of generosity up to the time, from the Federal commanders. Grant was essentially a "Union General." He fought jn sincerity andn earnest for the pres ervation of the " Union" not as a pretext for ulterior views, not as an' excuse for slaughter, plunder, confiscation and subjuga tion, but as a reality. And when the first step in his object had been accomplished in dispersing the armies organized to break it up, he proved his sincerity by acts and ef forts to bind up the political wounds inlllic cd by war, and. by immediately dropping the sword to seize the olivo branch. Ha has thus shown his want of sympathy with the radical plan of continuing the war in time of peace, and of rejecting tho Union they had fought for. His conservative tendencies and his love of justice and truth have been recently man ifested in the report ho made to the Presi dent, ofthc condition of things in the South, whence he had just returned. He declared the people sincerely and heartily desirous of restoration, and ,in earnest in their profes sions and vows of allegiance to the Govern ment .of the United States. lie told the truth, also, unpalitablc to the negro worship pers, tliat the " freedmcn " were for the most part idle and unwilling to enter into labor contracts for the coming year. In this he has performed a valuable service to the South, for his testimony will outweigh upon the Northern public mind, the reports of a thousand such parte witnesses as Carl Schurz, John Covode and Gen. Banks. In his late admirable report of the opera tions of the great armies under his command he gives another proof of the generosity of his spirit and the broad nationality of his feelings, in a graceful passage of tribute to the gallantry of the South. After doing justice to the equal bravery of the troops of the East and the AVest, who had fought un der his eye, he adds : " Let us hope for perpetual peace and harmony with that enemy, Khosc manhood, however mistaken, drew furth such Herculean deeds of ralor J" A man of Gen. Grant's stamp is invalu able to a country in an epoch like this. Events may take a shape to open to him even a wider and grander field of patriotic effort than that in which he has already earned so distinguished a reputacion. He may yet have to marshal parties and poli cies as he has heretofore done battalions and armies, A Democrat in political faith and education, and a Conservative in sentiments and principles, who knows but that he is tho coming man to rally the hosts of his politi cal persuasion to the defence of the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution of the Union. This high duty of a great leadership hat to devolve on some strong patriot. The Douglas Democrat of 1SC0, tho first soldier of the United States, after four years of fiery ordeal, the idol of the army and the object of high esteem and respect in the South as well as in the North, where could the Democratic conservatives of the ratio find a worthier leader, or the restored United States a more honest President ? As politi cal currents are now running, these thoughts may become prophecies before three short years roll away. German Labou. The first installment of German laborers for the Valley of Vir ginia arrived in Alexandria on Saturday, The Gazelle says : They have been engaged by Colonel John rairiax, ot .London, who intends tuorou;iilv to test this, to our people, new species of la bor. It is said Ins example will soon be fol lowed by many of the farmers in the Pied mont District. In the lower counties, where the new system has been introduced, it is said that the result is satisfactorv, and Messrs. Wilmer and Washington, the agents here for German emigrants, are receiving frequent orders from the upper and lower countiess and, as the freedmen have become unccatain, it is not improbable that white labor will entirely supplant the negro m this section of Virginia. Aiims Foil Home Companiiss. Provis ional Governor Johnson replies to Judce M. J. Crawford, who asked if the State of Georgia would furnish arms to companiei for home defence, that the btate had none, and that ho had forwarded Judge Craw font's letter to Gen. Wil.-on, accompanied by an ano'nymous communication entitled " JJangefs Ahead." The Estate ok Mn. Lincoln. The Washington correspondent of the New York Express says that Justice Davis, of the United States Supreme Court, the executor .of Mr. Lincoln's estate, reports that Mr. Lincoln left about $8."i,000, $7o,000 of wliich is in live-twenty stocks. He left m Sprinc field about four thousand dollars' worth of real estate. Masonic Hall. A10! AIHM) ! THUBSDAY, FBIDAY & SATUBDAY, Doc. 21st, 22ri, nnd 23d, '05.
