Dear Sir : The past and the present both justify me to myself in appealing to ynii, Sir, for Hindi information and counsel, if you have it, as will relieve my mind and heart of the painful doubt and anxiety which oppress them re specting the fate, not only of the south ern states and people, but of tho Repub lic, and of the civil liberty which it was created to establish-and defentl. My own views are, in a word, nothing in my present position to be heeded even, much less to be made known, with any hope that they would prevail. You know my position before tlie war: "To light in the Union, under the express letter of the Constitution—to take up arms by the sovereign authority of states—to repel invasion and to suppress 'insurrection.'" I assented to secession on the grounds of Mr. Madison, that it was at most but a levolulionary remedy in the conflict of sovereignties among the states of the Union; that if successful, it would pre serve Constitutional limitations, defend the right of self-government, and secure civil liberty; ami if unsuccessful, that it woultl leave ua at least as we were ante tiellum, under the legis of the Constitu tion of the United States, as the supreme law of the Nation and all its parts, tbe Confederate States remaining bodies politic, or sovereign slates, still in thS Union. The revolution of sovereignties was unsuccessful, never consummated Con federate independence, and never for one moment took a single state out of the Union, but left each and all as they were under the Federal Constitution, bound by its compacts and protected by- Its provisions aud guarantees. By the result of the war the Union was not re stored, for it was never destroyed or broken; it was not to be ''reconstruct ed," for it wus already constructed by the Constitution; states were still states; citizens were still citizens; Federal rights and relations were still the same; obligations and duties were the same; privileges and protection aud penalties were all the same, Just simply because the Constitution of the United States was still the same, aud the Union was still the same, as neither had been de stroyed, though the former was heavily assailed, and the latter had often been violated; the one stood the shock uud test of arms, and the other still reign* the supreme law. Km-li, fairly stated, I apprehend and hope, to be the position of President Johnson, fouuded on tlie laws of civil war among sovereign states. Can you inform me, then, why, the war having ceased, peace has not yet been proclaimed ? Why the writ of ha beus corpus has not been restored ? Why civil jurisdiction has not been allowed to take cognizauce of all cases belonging to the courts of law and equity under the Constitution? Is tbe war power to continue long after the ordinary pro cess of the judicial tiibunals can be ex ecuted? Are the civil laws to be sus pended ? Are original and sovereign States to be provincialized and "territo rialized?" Is tbe Constitution of the United States itself to remain suspended until some power or other can or shall forma new National Government? 1 might add Inquiry to inquiry, further, but these are enough, aud I confess to you tbat I have seen nothing from any quarter as yet shedding light on these momentuous questions. Whether I look to the Federal Executive, or Congress, or Juiiciary, or to the country at large, all is dark. I sec a lurid light only in the camp's of the array, still surrounding our very homes aud firesides. Cau you, from your stand, point me to any clear, unclouded prospect, to cheer the patriot heart which longs to see the old Union and old Constitution respected aud hon ored, anil obeyed as they really ex ist and have cversince I*7B7existed, without any reconstruction ? A year ago you implored the Southern people to return to the Union on a basis of equality aud fraternity. This you did from the Hall of the House of Rep resentatives, where we have no repre sentatives now, while we are paying heavy excise duties and other taxes. Du ring tlie war you were manfully opposed to it, but you were for the return of the South, and for tbe Union on an amica ble adjustment of all questions at issue; you did not believe that the differences existing were either Irreconcilable, or tc be determined and adjusted only by the sword. The main difference, that of Slavery, has been since determined for ever, vi concilate belli. I am convinced that it could never have been settled in any other way. and that for that reason the war Itself was providential, it was God's war, aud who on earth dare gain say it. It has fixed tlie Unjou firm on its base, unless it has unfixed tbe Con stitution. But if the war has destroyed the latter, it has destroyed the former, forever. Why have you been silent so long ? What is the state of national af fairs, present and prospective? Let me hear from you soon. Very truly yours, Henry A. Wise. reply or MB. WOOD. Niw Yo»i, F»t>. ig, land. My Dear Sir : You aay, correctly, tbat I have beeu sileut on national poli tics since my speech of February last iv Congress, in which I implored the southern people to return to tlie Union. I iiave been purposely so. during my absence in Europe, last Spring and Summer, the war abruptly closed, the Executive waa more abruptly cbauged, and the consequences of these events precipitated upon the country a condi tion of things, to comprehend which few minds were capable. I thought that silent observation would the better en able me to understand and appreciate this new order of public affairs, aud to reach a conclusion which, however un important to others, would at least be satisfactory to myself. 1 have reached this conclusion, aud having been thus called upon iv your letter of the 12th inst., will give it in reply. The form of government established by the present Constitution waa not the first created after independence, n:,r was it republi can. The first was that established by the articles of confederation, making a league of colonies, which, in 1788, was replaced by the present form, enlarging tlie central authority, but retaining much of the confederate characteristics; but this was, nevertheless, essentially a confederacy, and not a republic, iv the true sense. Tbe republic form "is that of a State in which tbe sovereign power is in the representatives elected by the people." This was not nor In it yet our system according to the theory of State government. The states are republican, but not the Federal Union.. The sov ereign powers cannot exist within the same Government. If sovereignty wus returned by the states, it could not have been imparted to tho Federal authority. Opposite views as to the relative strength of these authorities have existed ever since. There was sufficient iv the anomaly of the system to divide states men and parties as to its nature. Op posing sectional differences on this and other essential questions Increased with time, and finally plunged the whole country into war. No one difference caused the war. There was a combina tion of antagonisms, including those of a-social, commercial and partisan char acter. All of these questions were issues l>e tweeu the parties to tho contest. An appeal was taken to the highest of all human tribunals, and a decision has been rendered from which there can be no further appeal. We are concluded by the result. It is true the Conslitu tion remains as it was, and it is also I roe that, though tlie war power has ceased, the war power Is still invoked anil the South kept in a state Inconsistent with peace anu repugnant to the Constitu tion. But I look upon this as but the period which intervenes between the rendering of final judgment and the settlement of the case as to the precise points which have been decided. It is an interregnum, to bo followed by such measures as will adapt the fundamental form of government to the new order of things, and incorporate into our system the principles thus established by force of arms. As you well state, botli Stale sovereignty and slavery have been de termined against. For tlie former we must hereafter have unity—for the latter, freedom. Whether you and I will it or not, or whatever may be men's opinions as to the true construction of tlie Con stitution with reference to these two great questions, it is folly to disguise the fact that hereafter there can be no such issues. Tlie new Americanism opens up before us, and common sense demands that we should conform to it. Now, what follows ? State sovereignty being dead, unity follows. The people of the whole Union are one, and tin majority is that one. This, you will say, is consolidation; ami so it is, but not a consolidation inconsistent with free Government, nor witli Republican ism—nordoes it imply that states, as such, shall not continue North an.l South with all needful jurisdiction over domestic rights. Slavery being dead, freedom follows. This is one ot the difficulties now in the way of the com plete restoration of peace. There is a doubt in tlie minds of some as to tlie points settled by the decision ou this question. It is held ou one side thatii means something more than merely ex emption from physical bondage—that it has been determined\hat all men shall hereafter be free aud equal, compre hending equality aud political and every other right known to the law—that an appeal to aims to decide social issues is tlie most radical of all measures, and we should not be surprised if tiie victors should seek to avail themselves of the ».I vantage gained to curry out their doc triues to tlie extreme extent which the opportunity affords. I note what you say as to tho present lamentable condition of the southern people, and admit the force of your de scription of their oppression aud depri vations. How could it be otherwise? Tbe storm through which they have just emerged may have disappeared, hut not its effects. The violence of tliut hurricane has left its mark deep in the recesses of the southern heart. Reside, the very doubt which I have referred to, as to tlie exteut of the application of tlie principles settled by the war, produces irritation on one side aud oppression on the other. Until these are linully dis posed of, much of this will continue. Nor can executive, legislative, or judi cial action prevent. Time and time alone can restore the lost rights of which you complain. But this time will be very much curtailed by a speedy reali zation and appreciation of the funda mental change affected. The Soul 1. has not lost any substantial right by the war. It has gained much. Its homogenity and unity with tbe peo ple o*f the whole Union have been se cured. Sources of discontent have been i. moved, and the door opened forever for the establishment of fraternal rela tions with oilier parts of the Union not heretofore* existing. She cannot be kept down. Her teeming soil; her climate of rare adaptability to culture; her brave and generous population; her peculiar monopoly of an indispensable product, with free institutions, and free inter course with all the world, she will spee dily recover not only her ancieut pros perity, but jiossess an additional advan tage which the new order of things will necessarily promote. I am aware that there are positions assumed and declarations made in this letter which may render me liable to the charge of inconsistency. If any thus accuse, let them remember that no par tisan associations nor opinious existing before anl during the war should con tinue when the whole aspect of public ,t flairs and the premises upon which they were founded have been altogether changed. I was opposed to the aboli tion of Slavery, because I believed, and yet believe, that as it existed in' the si.utheru states, it was a physical bles sing to tlie black race. I was opposed to the war for the reasons you so truth fully state, and because I thought tlie Colon could be maintained witln.ul bloodshed—that the question* at issue wer susceptible of amicable adjustment, and because I saw that the South would be vanquished aud overpowered and re duced to a state of subjugated depen dence. This is now over. Slavery has been abolished ; the war is ended. The great questions which made issues be tween political parties have ceased, and a new and entirely different order of public affairs has ensued. My desire is tbat we shall realize t his change and con form to it. It is folly to tight over the dead pant when the live prenent and the iikeat future opens so brightly and beautifully before us. I waut America to fill her mission. She is the fixed corner atone of univer sal liberty throughout the world. With this principle laid deep aud broad iuour own institutions, it should ba our aim to extend it to those oppressed elsewhere, until despotism ceases, not only on this continent, but throughout the civilized universe. Sincerely your friend, Fernando Wood. The Hon. Henry A. Wise. Advices from Montana represent that the Indians are committing great dep redations.

More than half a dosien letters have been received by Representative MoKee, of Kentucky, detailing outrages :i_rjsiiimi. the freedineu of that state In various parts of I.is diHtrict. In one case of the shooting of two negroes aud roboing them of till their families had, and upon the arrest of the perpetrators of the act by the agent of the bureau, I hey were discharged ou a writ of habeas oorpue, sued out anil tried before a cir cuit court. Another case, where a party of white men went to the house of an old uenrro, and a free man nearly all his life, robbed him of hi-, money, kicked him to death, raked the coals from tbe lire, put him on them, roasted him ou one Hide, arid (hen turned him aud rcasted the other. They also burnt two others nearly to death, puttiug an eye out of one, ami boasted that they not only intend to drive out the negroes, but intended also to drive out certain whites. Upon which tho Baltimore Sun re marks: Now that the freed men's bureau bill has received its quietus, statements like the above seem to be rapidly multiply ing for the evident advantage of those who would perpetuate their own power, and already tlie bureau is said to be get ting many audi reports from its agents. It is a little singular that these outrages should break out all at once, when it ia known that, the present bureau has yet uuother year of existence after the formal close of the .war. BIiHIIKH V OK Unitkb States Boms. Lutlier S. Lawrence, a banker doing business at 164 Nassau street, Henry C. Lyons and Spencer Pettus were ar raigned before Justice Howling, at the Tumults this morning, on a charge of having stolen three thousand dollars In United Htates Iwtntls. It seems that in June, isn.-t, Mr.Uwiiieburn had the bonds stolen from his pocket in tbs Philadel phia post-offlce. A description ot them was sent to the police of this and other cities. Captain Jourdan and detective Woolridge, of the Sixth precinct re cently learned that some of the "-;,. 0 . In.! I - were in tlie possession oi Jir. Law* rence. On the 17th instant, Mr. Law rence's office was visited and a five hun dred dollar bond, which had been stolen from Mr. Hwineburn, was recovered. It is alleged by the prosecution that Mr. Lawrence stated to Captain Jourdan that he had another of the bonds for .'.ye hundred dollars in his possession, anil that he at one time offered to give it up, but that subsequently he refused to tin so by advice of counsel, on the ground that he had bought the bonds, and not knowing that they had been stolen. Mr. Lawrence informed tlie officers .-hen they called on him, that he had' pur chased the bonds from one Henry C Lyons. The latter was taken into cus tody, and gave information which led to the arrest of Spencer Pettus, who is well known to the police. The case is not yet concluded, but there is little, if any doubt, that Mr. Lawrence purchased the stolen bonds without a knowledge of their character.— N. Y. Post. The Southern Catholics.—The Right Reverend Or. Lynch, Bishop of the diocese of Charleston, is a prelate wlio is well known throughout the en ure country. Recently returned from lio-ue, lie visited_hi3 home at Charles ton, and saw the desolation w-hioh tbe southern rebellion left iv its track. On Sunday lust he preached a sermon ia New \ork and told a crowded congre gation how sadly he felt when he viewed the wreck of Much iliat the Catholics held dear in Charleston. The Cathedral was a mass or ruins. His own residence was destroyed. The Seminary the Orphan Asylum, the Convent of the Sisters of Mercy, all were ci urn-linn ruins. All that tho Bishop and his pre deatMora had labored for and built up • ami were proud of during years of ser f-Ice, had been swept away by Uie rebel lion. The natural course of tbe Bishop perhaps, would have been to abandon his work iv despair, or to speak iv ijj termsof the Northern army who be sieged Charleston, or of the southern troops who burned it upon their evacu ation. He indulged, however, in no such feelings, The great ruin bad beeu effected and he was sorry for it, but it vm iii kindred devastation with that which swept t.ver thousands „f gqi: _l_. miles of the southern country Tha Bishop had advised his Hock at h___ e as he would advise all, both North and South, to forget the desolation as they would forget the war.
