The " radicals," whose business it Is to revile and villi fy the President of the United States whenever his official acts do not con form to their narrow, impracticable, dan gerous, and unconetttutlennl views, seek one and the same channel of ventilationthe Chronicle. They axe echoed In all they say and do by the legislative eaves-dropper, em ployed by the Senate, who has converted his morning print Into a rort of reservoir tor the collection of everything that any enemy of the Government may, In his bad temper, say against the Chief Executive of tho nation and his constitutional advisers. From the day the editor of the Chronicle and the Secretary of the Senate met with a great disappointment, about which the pub' Ho may hereafter learn the particulars, he has devoted himself, his paper, and the office conferred upon him by the Senate to misrep resent and abuse An drew Jon tf son, espe daily after the latter eeated to prende oier the Senate by reason of the death of Mr Lit cour. Mr. Joumsox becoming President, the editor and Secretary of the Senate had to look to some other presiding officer of that body, ae an agent, to assist him In taking away the patronage justly given to the Ser geaot-at-Arms of the Senate by Vice Presi dent Haulm, which he was anxious to use Vice President Juhiisos to aid him In ac complishing But for a knowledge of these mercenary motives which appear In every act of the hireling editor and Secretary we could some times respect his opinions and pardon his silly political gyrations and glaring blunders, and once In a while, perhaps, credit him with honesty In ringing bis changelon public policy. But his extraordinary record for bids any suoh a liberal construction of bis motives and acts He Is never moved to do anything because It Is right, but because there Is a consideration of pay or profit. Good may result from some things that he does, but It is only by accident He seems to do nothing in which be Is not governed by, and which does not proceed from, greedi ness of gain a sordid, selfish spirit On the 28th instant he devoted two and a half columns of the Chronicle to the abuse of the President. The basis or the article was the Veto or the Civil Rights' bill, io called The general reader would naturally suppose, from a perusal of the article, that the author was an honest man, who sincerely thought he observed the country going to pieoes, when In fact It was only tho produc tion of John W Fob it, a political mounte bank and pauper, who can no more lire out of office than a fish can live out of water, who, falling to find Ahdrbw Johnson a ser vile tool, fell to abusing bltn Without wading through the article of the 18th instant, alluded to, It is sufficient to say that it is In favor of the most extended rights being glren to the black men of the South, without extending any blessings whatever to the loyal whites of that section In Tiew of this fact, we aik the reader to peruse the article, which appears elsewhere, from the Nashville Tivut and Union, every word of which Johh W. Fobmkt, the editor and Secretary, has declared In favor of. Consistency It a Jewel, FOnitKT AS A POLITIC A I TOM DLE.

John W. Forkkt copied the article Into the Chronicle with the full knowl edge that It contained, In part and as a whole, the opinion or Andrew Johhsox on the subject or the admission or the late rebel lious States, Ac, Ae., and accompanied It with the editorial remarks above quoted, and he it on the record at having endorted the entire programme-to dearly laid down in tlie article, which Is ae follows: THE POLITICAL STATUS Or TENNESSEE, From the Nashville Times and Union, A new and brighter era Is dawning upon he once prood State of Tennessee. For more than three yea re it has been carted with tho blight of secession and rebellion. Its civil organliatlon has bee a broken down, Its pablle treainre enanlerfld, lie worke of Improvement suspended or diverted from their original purpose. The whole State, In Ue civil, social aad commercial relations, la paralysed, aad nearly every eonaty within 1U borders etalned with the blood of Its cltliene. But the great etrngile Is over. It ended with tbe last gun fred by the gallant General Thomas, In the battle around Its capital Random shots may yet be beard, aadrovlar bands may occasional y tnfeet lte borders, bat no formidable foe will again pros lie soil or de vaetate Ue fair fields, lte loyal people may now, with bngbtar prospect than ever before, rumtn great work or civil reorgaatsatloa Broken aad war-beaten ae U Tenaeaeee, it Is etlll a sovereign State great even In lte rains It Is still a member of the Federal Union still a Stale, and not a coouord province or a territo rial appendage, It has loit by the rebellion of a part of Its cltliene none of lte r ghta as a state, and forfeited none of Its obligations to the General Government. The fanrth eeclloa of t he fourth article of the Constitution of the Untied States reads as fol lows: Tbe United Elite ehall guarantee to ever? State In thle Union a repabllcaa form of govern ment, and a&all protect each of them agalatt In- vulon, and on application of the Legislature or of the Executive (when tbe Leg! tint ore cannot be convened) against domestic violence ' Under thUwItc provision of the Constitution tie power Is not only conferred, bat it Is made tbe dutyur me reaermi Government io protect each State agalnet domestic violence. Oat of re pect to tbe Sute governments It le provide.!, In cue of domestic violence, that the aid of the United States insy be Invoked by the LegUlatnre or Executive Bat the obllgatloa Is no leee blad ing on tbe Federal Government to fnrnlah pro tection to tbe Sutee "to suppress lmairectlon aad repel lavaaloa,' without the application by the LegUUtare or Eseentlve, tbaa with It It might happen, at the time of an Insurrection, or domestte violence, the LegUlatnre would not be In eealon and the Executive dead, auti do one to convene tbe Legislature Could It, under each etrcumitaacee, be for a wo me at eoateaded that the United States wonld be released from Ub obligation to protect the State aad save It from overthrow Or tbe LegUlatnre and Executive, aa la the case or Teaseete, might Join with and lead tbe Insur gents Would the United State la each aa event have so power or right to Intervene on behalf of the loyal people aad onellthe Insurrection imagine no one can doubt tbe 'right, ualese It U conceded that whenever a majority of the cltl seae of State enterlato rebellion theStete Itself U withdrawn from the Federal compact aed'bot of the Union To admit this would be to admit the doctrine of accession In Its broadest seae and at tbe same time to deny the constitutional right of tbe United States to Interfere, either with or without tbe nppllcatlon of the LegUlatnre or Executive, In the affair of a State. The very fact that there la rebellion or domes tie violence In a State famishes tbe only reasoa that lattice' the Un'.tod States In entering a State to suppress It. it ran enter with its armed power for no other rauae except to enforce Its own laws, aad and only for this cause, when the State la which It occurs Is too weak to ouell the disturbance Nor does It matter to what extent the domestic laanrrectloo bas gone, or how many people have become Involved in It, whenever each domestic v!o!nce occurs, whether one hslf or two thirds or even three tyurlbe of the people of a State are engaged In It, It becomes the doty of iho United States to Interfere, and by Its armed power save the Stale But what follows the suppression of such in sarrectlunf The Slate la not obliterated, nor has' It lspsed into a territory or conquered province. It U till a State In the Union, wllti all tbe rights nod privileges it enjoyed before.

A Slate once In I lie Union cannot be thus destroyed or forced out of the compact. The suppression of rebel Hon, or (fuelling domestic violence within It by the United States, neither conquers tbe State nor Involves Its loyal cltliene In tbe rebellloo J bat, la tbe language of the clause of the Constitution above tiodted, It "protects It saves it from self destruction or, It may be, from so altering Its Constitution as It will not bo "republican In form " Any other view Is self destruction.

THE KCMPStC-ArrEAnTO A SYM PATHIZING PU11MC. To tKe Editor of the Xattonal litpttltlica: I am the "Man In the Moon," and, as yon well know, my family and myself are to pass through a very unpleasant ordeal to-night. Yoar planet Is to come between me and the sun, depriving us of the shine or our'common dispenser or light and heat for a time, and, although the affair will not last long, I trem ble In view of the possible effect upon my early peas, (now In blossom,) and my straw berry plants and other much prixed garden luxuries. By the way, one of my boyi has Invented a "perpetual motion' machine, and In the course of his experiments casually discovered a way of neutralising the centripetal force In packages weighing aa high as fifty poonds, and I shall be able to tend to Washington editors some specimens of my fruits and vegetables. If your Isaac Newton could counteract the law of gravitation and send me some seeds out or the Bureau of Agricul ture, I should like it very much. At I said before, It will be a very trying time with me to-night, and I hope your citl sens will attend my Eclipse In large num bers, and give me as much of their sympathy and moral support as possible. In return, we will turn out en matte at the next eclipse of the sun. You can surely attend an eclipse of our planet with less trouble than one of the sun, as you do not require smoked glass to look at us. Max it toe Moon, P. 8 I hope Congress will not consider us as out of the planetary system after the Eclifie, and attempt to reconstruct us by legislation I shndder at the thought of going to Washington to work upon tbe lobby !

The measure adds about 40,000 to the number of voters. The total number of voters in England, Wales, and Scotland amounting in 1B64 to 1,128,754, the new bill (which will not affect Ireland) will tnoreaso the aggregate number of voters in this part of the kingdom to about 1,500,000 voters In a total population of 23,000,000.
