sylvania avenue
Tt Is probable that there are persons in the
United State who suppose that the rebel
States, when admitted to the privileges of
representation In Congress, will support tho
Union party and sustain the Administration
of President JortMsox Nothing is mure im
probable. The people of tho rebel States
are naturally hostile to tho party and men
that hare boon chiefly Instrnmental in sup
pressing the rebellion Dy old associations,
as well as by their hopes of the future, the
people of the South will join the remnant of
the Democratic party of tho North. Eene
ciallyis this likely to happen if the Union
party of the loyal States should be dlrided and
weakened, or its chances of success in IbC8
rendered hopeless or even doubtful. On tho
other hand, should the Ideas of tho Union
men of the free States bo so far accepted and
followed as to preserve the integrity of the
Union party, then Its success Is already
made certain, and consequently tbo peo
ple of the rebel States will be lod to
ally themselves to tho dominant party
This surely Is the tendency of human na
ture Hence we see clearly what a vise
policy dictates Congress and the President
should, and undoubtedly will, act In all mat
ters relating to the rebel States in such a
way as to satisfy tho masses of Union men
of tho country This policy renders political
sucoess certain. While this Is not the highest
consideration, It should not be overlooked,
and we cannot doubt that the President and
Congress will bo guided, as far as practicable,
by a policy at once wise and just, regardless
of Imprudent and rash suggestions frcm an;
We are happy to be able to announce that
the following dispatch, sent from this city to
tue flew York Evening rot on the 10th
Inst , Is based, upon more substantial truth
than much that has been published of late
ou the subject of Mexico, as Indicated In
last evening's Republican It says .
Those who are predicting that there is
likely to occur a breach between the Govern
ments or ranee and tne U nited btates on the
subject of Mezloo) are evidently not aware
that Mr. Johnson is acting in the matter
with a frankness and decision that will most
probably avert nnpleasant consequences
It Is reported here, In diplomatic circles,
that while the President was preparing his
message the Trench Mlnlstor became aware
of certain expressions of Mr Johnson in re
gard to the French occupation of Mexico,
coupled with demands upon France which
might place tho Emperor in an embarrassing
It Is further said by those who tell this,
that upon hearing these things the French
Minister visited Mr. Seward, and informally,
but positively, declared that the Emperor
did not wish for war with the United States,
and that he would very much regret sueh lan
guage or action on the part of the United
btates as would bring on a dead lock, and
make it impossible for him to recede without
At the same tlmo M de Montholon as
sured Mr 6eward, so say these persons, that
ho was authorised to promise that the French
troops would be withdrawn from Mexico "In
a little while' and tbat Napoleon only
asked for little patience In the United
States Government.
It Is further said that the French Minister
was able to satisfy the President upon this
one point, and to show authority fur enga
ging definitely that Napoleon would with
draw his forces "In a little while " And It
Is reported that Gen. Logan is so well satis
fled that then will be no difficulty, but that
Juarei and the Mexican republicans will
soon be peaceful reinstated in Mexioo, that
he declines the mission as loss Interesting to
im than loine other work he baa In hand.

Below wo give extracts from some of the
leading journals of the country1 on the sub
ject of the official announcement of the adop
tion of the amendment of the Constitution
by the requisite number of States.
The New York Tribune says
Whatever differences exist between ear
nest patriots as to the formality of this act,
this much Is certain slavery la constltu
tionallv dead Whether or not the Sonth
had the right to help us to this end, It still
remains that slavery is dead If we might
have accented less than a deluge to sweep It
away, it is wen ior an mat it is swept away
rwenty seven states navo ratinca the con
stitutional amendment. The unanimity
which will follow the first moral confirma
tion of the law will pile Ossa upon Pelion
We are eortain, then, that slavery tn the
land Ii dead tn tho law and letter beyond
hope of resurrection, and that tt has boen
burled by tho official sextons of twenty
seven States.
The New York Ttmts says
"This certificate of the ratification of the
constitutional amendment by tho necessary
number of States Is tho first official recogni
tion by tho Government of the constitutional
equality of tho late Insurrectionary States
with the other States. It therefore ts doubly
momentous It makes an end forever of
slavery, and at the same time vttalixcs the
essential principle of restoration It Is im
possible for the government which has rec
ognized the voice of South Carolina to be
equally potent with that of Massachusetts,
and that of Georgia to have the same effect
as that of New York, In the amendment of
the organic law of the Union, to deny them
equal functions In tho Union."
Of the twenty-seven ratifying States no
less than ten were elaveholding at the begin
ning of the rebellion, namely. Maryland,
Missouri, Virginia, north Carolina, bouth
Carolina, Georgia, Atabuma, Louisiana, Ar
kansas, and Tennessee All of these, save
tho two first, were part of the Confederacy'
which made traitorous war upon the nation
Tho old Roman triumphal procession began
with the lictors and closed with the captives,
chained to the chariots. In our triumphal
procession, the conquered march with the
lictors, and share with them htfa$cts and
the axes The moral sublimity Is Immensely
upon the side of the American Republic.
The New York Herald says :
" The proclamation Issued on Monday by
the State Department placed the final seal on
the tomb of African slavery t this country
The rebellion, inaugurated to protect that
institution, administered the ery blow which
caused Its death. Thus Providence, mot tag
in mysterious ways, has brought about by
war that which without It would have taken
generations, and perhaps centuries, to ac
complish." The New York World says.
The proclamation of Secretary Seward,
published yesterday, making the official dec
laration required by law that the Constitu
tional amendment has been ratified by the
requisite three fourths of the States, takes
out of politics, and consigns to history, an
Institution incongruous to our political sys
tem, Inconsistent with justice, and repug
nant to the humane sentiments fostered by
Christian civilization. The suddenness of
the transition makes it of doubtful advantage
to the present generation of adult negroes,
but the thin itself is so consonant to the
dictates of sound morality, that we are com
pelled to accept it as one of the most Im
portant reforms ever accomplished by volun
tary human agency. It opens the door for
tho full development of the capacities of the
negro race, if that race possesses tho ele
ments of enduring strength.
Tho New York Jmleyendenl says
A strange, grateful, and animated emotion
beaU in our veins at the thought of the Uni
ted btates Government declaring with its
official lips that American slavery is no more
No moro shackles in the republic' No
more buying and selling of human beings at
auction No more enforced separations of
lamiues' io more ordaining or ignorance
by law' No mure flourishing of the slave
driver's lash' No more hunting of men and
women by hounds' AH this ancient tale of
horrors blotted out at last by the stroke of
a i ecretary's pen'
The Springfield (Mass ) Union say
La us Dxo The United States is now, and
will ever be, to ondless generations, a free
and independent nation Freedom Is na
tional, for slavery Is dead No more to bo
revhod, no more to breed dissensions, no
moie to Incite war, no moro to clutch at the
heart of the people, and steal tho life blood
oi tne lairest and noblest of the land
American slavery has been constitution
ally abolished not fur a day, but for all
Glory to God in the blithest, and on earth
peace, good will to men
Tho New York Tribune, alluding to Sena-
tor Slider's undignified and unsenatorlai
whitewash" speech, in denunciation of
President Jonisioi a message to the Senate
on the 19th lntant, says
"We find in the text of this messaco no
adequate reason for Mr Sumner s uenuncia
tlonof It If the President bad demanded
of Congress that it act on his Judgment rather
man us own, men ne would nae acted un
warrantably, but. as he has slmnlv iflvenhfs
own view of the existing situation, with his
reasons for suggesting a particular course, he
deserves neither denunciation nor obloquy '
Tho railroad bill which passed the House
on Tuesday appears to have thrown the spe
cial correspondents Into a state of special be
wilderment Their dispatches are luminous
with sage remarks upon the railroad system
of the country, and voluminous In denuncia
tions of moneyed monopolies A good many
of them appear, to think that things have
baen so arranged now that passengers are to
be carried In a balloon over New Jersey, or
possibly translatod hence to New York AH
of them agreo that it Is a terrible blow at all
tho roads in that recently annexed domain
The Boston IWj dispatch, which is com
paratively mildly blundering, fixes It this
'Congress accomplished legislation to-day of
great lnlerent lathe House, nndsr the opera
tions of the prevluu questiun, a bill was rushed
through regulating commerce between the sev
eral States It Is tii tended especially to refer to
New Jrey and Maryland, and prohibit the lay
ing of a ptr tnpita tax on passeugers fr iia oue
8ut who may bo travelling In another "
Now here is the bill
Bo it tmulwl , Ac , That every railroad com
pany In the United States wboxe road in operated

all passengers, troops, fcuverument supplier,
malls, freight, and property on their way from
one Stato to another Stato, aud to leceive coin

And the objoct of the bill Is to enable the
Illinois Central and some other roads, which
received large grants of lands, in oonsidera
tion of which they were to render the Gov
ernment servtco without other compensation,
to collect pay for such service hereafter in
very hard cash or as hard a may be the

SLAYHnr Revived if Mexico bt a Sub
TEnrtae The llouso of Representatives, It
will be remembered, ft few days ago passed a
resolution calling for Information in posses
sion of the Executive Department with ref
orence to a so-called decree by Maximilian,
"tho Trench agent In Mexico," under dato
of September last, establishing slavery or
peonage in that Republic.
From the reply to this resolution It appears
that Secretary Seward, upon receiving the
decree, forwarded It to Attorney General
Spued, requesting his opinion thereon. Mr
SrEED, after referring to the former abolition
of slivery, concludes as follows :
I havo no hesitation In saying that these
regulations constitute a law which deprives
worklngmon of rignls wnicu wo in tnu coun
try regard, and which In every well-organ
itcd community should be regarded ns inesti
mable, inalienable and Indestructible, and
certainly makes them slaves. Tho history of
