The ECeaittee on Reconstruction, called upon thi President on Saturday last, in accor dance with. lastrBCtlOBS of the inain Committee. The PrssLdeEt talked frcly in regard to tie whole qnatloa, sad told them what use of them knew before, thai he iru it) faTor of aa early admission of the RefiTeieEtstivM of thoto States. He indi cated very clearly that lie was opposed to tecdifig a roving Committee throughout tbe Sonth to ob tain Isfrmtioa respiting affairs, for the reason that they would take Hionths to accomplish the mission. Tho Committee gave co indication of the views of tie Joint Committee, for they did not know then what they were. Mr. Sheliabargsr, from the Columbus, Ohio, District, delivered an elaborate speech from the Radical fltand-po'mt, in which be assumed that the States wero withoat the Union, and that during the war they were sovereign and belligerent. He declared that he wonld resist their admission for ever, until they meted out equal and exact justice to all within their limits- This sentiment elicited great ajiplaase on the floor of the House. The, House Judiciary Committee, who has under consideration the question of amending the Constitution confining the apportionment of Rep resentatives to actual voters, and not to popula tion, find many difficulties in the way of carrying aueh measures, provided it was left to the States. It is very probable that the Committee will re port in favor of giving Congress the right to regu late the question. Secretary of tie Treasury McCulloch yester day communicated to the House a .statement of the difficulties attending the assessment and col lection of internal revenue in the lato insurrec tionary districts, by reason of the Inability of rev enue officers to take the test oath. Without It they cannot draw pay, and th majority of them sre so poor that they are forced to seek other em ployment which will return ready cash and enable them to live. The Secretary urges that the test oath be modified In its application to Internal rev enue officers. It if stated by members that Congress will ex tricate tbelOeorgla Collector, whose letter was read before the House, from his difficulties, by authorizing the revenues to bo collected by offi cers of the army in cases whereUh!on men cannot be obtained, MaJorMiddlelon. late of the Rebel army, who has held a clerkship in the Treasury Department for several months past, has resigned. Mr. Morgan presented the memorial of the New York Chamber of Commerce, asking for leg islation to protect Northern creditors from the operation of Southern statutes of limitation, which was referred to tho Committee on the Ju diciary. Our Consul at Havre, writing to the Stato De partment under date of December, 1SG5, says that since the date of his last dispatch in reference to cholera at that port, there had occurred eight cases of cholera and four deaths among the very poor and destitute classes. No reports are pub lished, and no panic or excitement exists there. nor have there been any vases among emigrants, Mrs. Susannah C. Clay, mother of Hon. 0. C. Clay, Jr., died at Ilunlsville.

It Si a question of greater Importance tlian any now being agitated at "Washington. The proposition lias been already introduced in Congress to apportion tbe representation in the popular branch of that body on tho basis of the voting population of thenevcral States, fichenck, of Ohio, a leading member of this Congress of tbe dominant party, in his re cent speech at his Stato capital insisted tha this amendment "should be adopted by three-fourths or the loyal States before ad mitting the other States," and that they, the now excluded States, as a condition of resto ration, should bo required to ratify it; "for, otherwise," said he, "they might defeat it, and ultimately gain such power as to undo all that haa been done to prevent a repeti tion of the late disasters." The" proposition is revolutionary in the broadest sense, and if adopted, would be a clear abandonment of the constitution which they have heretofore pretended to regard. The response of the President to a reso lution of the House, asking or information as to the causes of the delay in the caw of Jefferson- Davis and other Confederates, will be found on the first page of this mor ning's issue.

"We make the following excerpts from that letter to show our read ers what a "professional .Bohemian " sees in onr State: 8 ROWS LOW. Go -where to a will in this State and meet whoa you will, with a few exceptions, and you will dis cover a. feeliag of aversion for Governor Brown low. This feeding scesas to exist to a great extent amosf the Radicals and those who havo boea loyal threttefceat tho great ttnwld The Con servative classes, those who have been Uw-aad-order men all the time, have no sympathy at all for the Governor: while thoso who have been known as secessionists look upon him u their evil genius. I do not concur much with the Ideas of this latter ebw, at least where ibey concern Gov. Urowalaw. especially as I have always been on the meet intimate terms of friendship with him. IfeM it my duty to seek for in formation amon g those who have ever been steadfast frieads of Andrew Johnson aad th Uaieo: and IJiad among these very same steadfast friend above referred to a spirit of diwast and dislike for the Governor. One Jroaunent Union aiin Mrs to me : "Mr. Truman, do think that, next to Pennsylvania, Tennessee is the greatest state in the Union, taking every thing into consideration-1-! ti minerals, its agri cultural resources, etc, etc., bat it Is a great mis fortune that Ilrownlow is Governor." I Knew how my friend .voted, and I replied : "Hat you voted, for him, didn't youT You did all you could to el evate him to tad position .he now occupies; why not stick to himT You're a native Tenncasean, you've known him all your life; you knew his id losyncracics, and with that knowledge you assist ed in the elevation 'which he now enjoys. Why notitick to him?" -Well," he replied! ''IH talk to yoo in a different strain f.om what I would to our rebel brethren, because many of them hate him bceaaso he has always been loyal. As a good square Union man, though, I consider I have a right to say what I please, and I wiiltellyou what it is, it's a very unfortunate thing for Tennessee that old Ilrownlow is its Governor. Now, the truth is, I always felt an aversion for the man, on account of his excessive profanity and vulgarity. I' knew him to be totally unfit for the office. I have heard him, in his speeches years ago. enter the sanctu try of aman's home and assail the virtue of his wife and mother. Just to keep up a vulgar end and make a crowd laugh, while bis speeches against those men who differed with biia on the slavery qneitlon that if, those who were in favorof grad ual emancipation, abolition, Ac. were tho vilest and most murderous I have ever heard. He named all of tbe species of torture as being too good for these men, and unveiled a world-of blas phemy in the denunciation of all such. Dut'the Union soldiers of Tennessee had made up their minds that he should be the next Governor of the State, and I thought tbey had a better 'right to name the man than anyone else. I should have nrefcrrrcd Itosselll Houston, Hazard East, Manse llricn. or most any other Union man. to the l'ar son ; but I went in for what our soldiers said was tueir preterence, ana aitnougn i would rataerseo him, with all his glaring faults, than a rebel or ex rcbcl, in the same position, I repeat it, that his elevation to the Gubernatorial chair of Tennessee was, next to the secession of tbe State, the most unlortunate tning tnat ever Happened us." I give this verbatim, from one of the best Union men in the State, and regret to add that tha above is tho tenor of the feeling regarding the Governor etmost ottne loyal men throughout thebtate. HOKESTY Or TEXKE8SKE EEBBL8. Peace is hero and War is no more ; and all tho latter day disunionists living cannot again pro- voKe our Jicnuoucan people into a mutual in line of blood. In this connection let me inform you that everything goes well in this section of tho courtiy. inrougnout aitaaie jennesseo there is more real determination to abide by, and respect for the laws of the United States Govern ment; and there is also more true lovo for South ern men, and a greater desire for emigration to this section than ever existed before the war dur ing the nast thirty Tears. There is not a man in Middle Tennessee who would raise his hand against the government, neither is there a man who does not respect and honor the flag of the free. Let some of these gentlemen who prate about the disloyalty of the South discard the pet ty sayings of a few dirty itinerant preachers and hungry editors, duly placed before them in an ex aggerated form by a shovelful of incendiary edi tors of the North, and come down into tho South unpredudicod, and they will be thrilled with tho manliness ana loyalty oi me people. XO rOLITICXLDlSSEXSIO.VB IXTESXKSSEE. The people of Tennessee have, come square up to the mark, and no political dissensions exist in this State whatever.

Tn East Tennessee, for a few monthspast, a little political feeling has prevailed. This was anticl nated. and is the result of the bad leashing of the Knoxvilio Wkio. I do not know tho author of tho articles, but they were in bad taste to say tbe lcaU The first few months, after the cessation of hostilities, tms newspaper advised tne loyal .Kan Tcnncsseeans to deal with the returned rebels harshly; to drive them out of the State, to shoot them down, Ac, This paper also sougth to elcvato the negro at tho expense of tho whito people, and against all manner of reason. The consequence was that a scene of strife took place between thoso who had been loyal and tnose who had been dis loyal, which made civilisation blush. And the negroes acted worse than the whito people. Tbey shot down whom and when they pleaded, and actually crowded the acting editor of tho lVAia off the pavement. He suddenly changed his tone and an onslaught warf made upon the negro, which culminated in the denial of his right to testify in the courts, the loyal East Tcnnessecansbeing tue party who detested the bill.

Gen.Fisk, in saying a good blgthlng for himself, and an unkind word lor his colleagues, Tillson and Swayne, roust recollect that there was a slight diuerence between tne state oi imnga in Georgia and Alabama and the state of things in Tennessee at the closo of the war. TUE rnEEDXEK HAfTT. If there is any class of people enjoying their freedom, and flourishing as a class in any State in the Union, it is tho colored people of Tennessee. I ron personally acquainted with hundreds of the Prominent colored men of this State, and they tell me that the masses of the colored people are living happy and contented. All the colored man nf Tennessee wants now is the legal right to tes tify In the courts, to sue and be sued, etc., etc The time may come when he may be entitled to the rights of suffrage. In fact, it is not unreason able to anticipate this. Hut It would be exceed ingly indiscreet and unwiso to give him this right at present. Tbe negro, like many white men, cannot stand too much prosperity. And, in more tban one sense. It would be casting pearls before swine. I suppose there are more wealthy colored men In Nashville than in any other Southern city. There is also a fine newspaper carried on in their interest, owned and edited by colored men. BIDlCiL STOCK BELOW rAS. The feeling of the people, especially those who have always been loyal and that is one-third of tho white citltcns of the State is intensely bitter against Mr. Sumner and his Kadical colleagues in the Senate, and Mr. Stevens andJ his party in the House. The people, as a wholo people, feel that they have been outraged beyond all prece dent, ana entertain a feeling bordering upon ha tred for those gentlemen in Congress who are at tempting to degrade those loyal 4men who hare kin int to Washington as their Senators and iteprcsentatives. The State which has furnished 35,tXOsn!diersand sailors for the army and navy of the United States the State which has fur- nishil Andrew i onnson, jne siernng pa triot, who was olevatod to his high position by th" people of tbe United States tho State which fnrnished Farragut, tho greatest sailor in the world and the Stare which has patriotically sent two Senators and seven Representatives to the United States Congress who can tako tho test oatb, will not soon forget tho outrage.

Some fifty odd murders and hundreds of highway robberies have occurred within the past four months.

The latter claw, especially thoe who have been discharged from the service, have for a great part, turned highway robbers and mur derers.

On the other hand, the Governor of Ohio, a gentleman who threw himself into the actual strife, of battle, and who acted a conspicuous part in the preservation of the Union, lays down the sword and takes up the baton of civil administration. It affords us pleasure to give the following views from his inaugural address, evincing calm reflec tion and a returning, sober sense of duty and justice, in the present" grave emergency of public affairs. He says: "fZnvr vs. hx.ru tint eff the harness of war: tbe grand army which saved the republio is disband ed; its veterans have been quietly absorbed into the'uass ol" their fellow-citiiens; and all are now Intently studying the problem of changing a Union restored by forco into one whose perma nence shall be guaranteed by mutual good wiil and common interests, and bp based upon universal freedom and genuine republicanism. "I do not regard this a proper time to discuss specific measures which are before our Federal Legislature and authorities, but all our' public acts in our State organizations, as well as in our National capacity, must be more or less modified by circumstances shaped by the great war in which we. have1 been encaged, and it seems necessary. therefore, as a preparation for every species of public duty, tnat we snouia looc wnn special care at any dangerous tendencies the, war may have1 developed, and recall the general principles which should cuido our actions as servants of the people. "The war vra not waged by us, who remained faithful to the Government to subvert any.of the principles of human liberty upon which that G0V7 ernmcnt was based, but to oonfirin and establish them." "It is in the excitement of a great struggle that the institutions of a country are in the most danger of a change, 'and perhaps no nation, has ever passed through such' a convulsion as 'ours and then re turned -to the principles of government and exact form of constitution which it had before. The maxim that revolutions do not go backward, has seemed to have even a wider and deeper signiQ cance than has been popularly given to it Tho same law of progression which has made the con vulsions of monarchical governments tend toward the development of popular liberty has, in repub lics, too often led to a despotism of classes or fac tions, and thence, by easy stages, to anarchy and utter disruption. A victorious majority, flushed with its triumph, finds it easy to forget tho rights of minorities; and it remains for us to prove whe ther, in our day, the, old cry of 'Woo to the con quered' may be silenced by a truly republican de termination to administer tbe Government for the real advantage of all of the defeated rebels as well as of the loyal victors. W'e are apt indeed, to listen With patience to any limitation of our' control over those who are subject to us. The pleasures of rulership and the joy which is felt in the exercise of power havo al ways appealed with' peculiar force to the frailties of human nature, and professed republicans have been as subject to their temptations as other men. In a time iiko this most of us fee) the necessity of checking our impulses and passions, challenging the motives and the' consistency of our actions; and of fastening our attention, by effort of will,, upon principles of government and of human rights which have been 'axioms' to us during the period of the growth of our Institutions, and of conflicts between us and powerful foreign, powers. However unwelcome the task of self-examination, we owo it to ourselves to make it thorough and searching. The ancient conqueror was accom panied br a slave in his triumphal car, who re minded nun of his humanity and weakness; we must 'act as our own prompters to' moderation and justice, and remind ourselves of the rules which should control our action and of the dangerous tendencies of pur own nature. (Wo need no stim ulus to anything which 'runs with the whole cur rent of popular impulso and feeling r such things will take care of themselves, but no duty can be more important than that of stopping occasionally to weigh well what Seems to cross our desires or to question the direction of our progress. " AYo have tho right and are in duty bound to insist upon sufficient guaranteefor the future safe ty of the Union; but those guarantees must be such as shall not be inconsistent with a republi can government for those wbo give as weU as for thoso who receive such security. "'Conquest does not rightfully give unlimited rav over the ncrsons and nroncrtv of tho con quered, and their rights' may be diminished no further than is necessary for the public safety. " If it were proven that it would be impossible for us to live safely, as sharers of ,a common gov ernment with tho people of any State or com munity, our republicanism might force us to con sent to separation, but could not justify us in holding them as subjects: "Representation is not a privilege conferred up on majoritics. but it is most efficient for good when it approaches most nearly to giving voice in tho Legislature to all minorities in proportion to their number. "It is better and safer that a minority, however hostile to us in principle, should bo so represented as to be openly heard and answered, than that it should hare the advantago of winning sympathy and gaining partisans by making issuo upon the question ol the right cf representation instead of upon the falsityof its obnoxious principles. "Military government is in its very essence a despotism, and any long continuance of it after tne cessation ot armea resistance is contrary to, and a confession of. tho failure of republicanism. "Tbcseand many similar general maxims, of government are the intellectual diet upon which every living American has been bred, and of which we have been such earnest propagandists that no ono of us can deny tbcm without incurring the contempt of the civilised world. They are mere abstractions, it is true, but we need to bear them in mind nono tho less carefully for that All rules are abstractions, whether they be tbe for mula for solving the problems of government or of other sciences. We recall them to test our work, and we reckon ourselves to have made good progress in proportion to the faithfulness with which wc have adhered to them." Such language from such a source will command the attention of patriotic men everywhere, and will be hailed as . a noble and manly step towards a restoration of the ancient fraternity which characterized the people of the United States, and out of which has grown their prosperity and power.
