At length the rebel armiessurrendered an 1 the rebel p.,wer utterly collapsed and vanished. What then ? The claim ol The insurgents that they either now re» acquired or h id never forfeited their con iititioiial rights in th; Union, including that of representation i iCi-ingic?-*. stands in pointed antagonism alike to the re-, (iiiironients of Con.'reN, and to thoso ol I lie acting ('resident.

It was I'tesident Johnson, who, so late as last October, when all shadow ol overt i. istuueo to the union had 1 )ng since disiip; eared, insisted that It was not cnnngli that a Hinte. which had revol ted, must r°cognize her ordinances of so cession as null and void from the begin ning,and ratify the Constitutional Aweud went prohibiting slavery evotmore, but she must also repudiate every dollar ol indel tcducss created to aid in carrying on the rebellion. It wan be who ordered the dispersion by military force, of any Legislature chosen under the rebellion, which should assume the power to make laws al'ier iliSt rebellion had failed; ii was ho who referred to Congress all the j inquiries as to tho probability of repre sentatives from the States lately iu revolt, being ad.uiittod to scats in either li. u=o, and suggested that thpy should present their credentials, not at the organization of Congress, but afterward; and, finally, it was he, au 1 not Congress, who sug gested to his, Gov.

Andrew Johnson, and of Congress cat.- uot be antagonist parties to that contest -iuoe their record plaecs them on the anio side. , ' It being thus agreed that the condi ,'ions of restoration aiidguaran tees against future rebellion, may be exacted of tße States lately in revolt, the right of Con gress to a voice in prescribing these con litions and in shaping those guarantees, is plainly incontestible. Whether it take he shape of law. or a constitutional intendment, the action of Congress is • its!, even if they were ta bo tattled by treaty. The ratification of.the Senate by. two-thirds vole would be iudispcnsablo. here is nothing in 4he Federal Consti ution, mil'in tho nature of tfic case, that untenances the f.xecutive monopoly of his power. \\ hat, then, is the ground of complaint igainjt Congress? It is charged that ho action of the two houses wts tardy iiid hesitating ? Consider how momen ous were the questions involved, the is ues depending. Consider how novel ml extraordinary was the situation.— onAideiiug how utterly silent and blank, s t ho Coder I constitution touching the, rcafiiicnt of insurgent States, whether uiing their fligrunt hostility to the ll ion or alter thoir discomfiture. Con. -ider with how many embarirassments ind difficulties tlio problem is besot, and y u will not wonder that months were re (uiivd to devise, perfect and pass, by a two thirds vote in cither House, a juss nid safe plan of reconstruction. Vet that plati has been matured. It Ii Spa .cd the .Senate by liS to 11, and the 1011.-T. by 138 to ;iG. It is njv7 fairly efore the country lnving already been atified by the Legislatures of several States and rejected by none. Under it hi State of Tennessee lias been formally i i .'.lt red to.ail thq privileges she forfeited by rebellion, including representation in ■uhor House of CoLgresa, aud tho door litis passed through still stands inviting ly oj cn to all who still linger without.— Arc the conditions thus prescribed iutol. i rable, or even humiliating ? Thoy are :n substance these: Fir.iL All persons born or naturalized n this country are henceforth citizens of the tinted States, and shall enjoy all the lights of'citizens evoi more, and no State shall have power to controvene this most righteous and necessary provision. Scroml. — While the States claim and exercise the power of denying the olee ivo franchise to a part of their people, he weight of er.eh Slate in tho Union -hall be lucusm ed by, and bo based upon, it- enfranchised population. If any State -ball choose, fcr oo criui>', to deny polit ieal rights to any race or caste, it must no longir c. nut that race or caste as a basis of political power in tho Union. 4 ThinJ. —llo who has once held office oti ti e strength of bis solemn oath to sup. port the Felaral Constitution, and has, nevcrheless, Iprsw >rn himself and treas onably plotted to subvert that Constitu ti in, shall henceforth hold no political ollico till Congress, by n two thirds vote, shall remove or nudity tho disability. Fourth. —Tho national debt shall be in no wise repudiated nor invalidated, and no debt incurred in support of tho rebel lion shall ever be assumed or paid by any State, nor shall payment be made for the loss or emancipation of any slave. Fijth. —Congress shall hav) power to enforce these guarantees by appropriate legislation. Such, fellow-citizens, aro tho conditions of Reconstruction proposed by Congress and already accepted by the loyal Legislature of Tennessee. Are they har.-h or degrading? Do you dis cern therein a disposition to trample on tile prostrate or push an advantage to the I uttermost ? Do they embody aught of vengeance or any confiscation but that of slavery ? We solicit your candid and impartial judgment. What is intended by the third section is simply to give loyalty a fair start in the reconstructed States. Under the Johnson policy the rebels monopolize [ ower and place.— Even in communities where they are de cidedly outnumbered their Generals are (Joveinoro and members of Congress; their Colonelß end Majors fill - the Logisr latuies, aud officiate .as Sheriffs.*. Not only are the steadfastly loyal proscribed but even stay at home rebels have little cliance in competing with those who fought to subfert the Union. When this rebel monopoly of offico shall have been broken up aud loyalty to the Union shall have beeomo general and hearty. Congress may remove the disability, a_d will doubtless make haste to Jo so. We do tot perceive that the justice e* fitness of the foutth section, prescribing ' that tho Union public debt shall be 1 promptly met, but that if the rebel fedeiacy cevur, is seriously contested.— S Th*re rWuai»», ftWD; Vut tVo ifctotfnd r ' '
