The great plan which has been ucribod to the adminiitratlon of the affairs of the uni verse" out of evil (till educing good " has not only been prominently Illustrated by our late crentful history, causing the wicked Institution of bondago and the dangerous heresy of secession to disappear by the in flictions of civil vtor, but the evil counsels which prevailed respecting the constitutional method of dealing with the southern States after the close of the contest and delaying the all important duty of restoration, is likely to result In dispelling the fears, mastering the prejudices, and quelling the passions of the less reflective portion of the country. We cannot conceive of a more thorough triumph and vindication of that humane and wiso policy commenced by Abriium Lix colx, under the name of reconstruction, and continued by Frcsldcnt Joiiiioi, under the namo of restoration ; or a more complete refutation and unanswerable rebuke to the wholesale misrepresentation of the condition of affairs, and the deliberate scheme of misin forming public opinion concerning the ani mus and intention of tho Southern States and people, which has animated the radical cam paign than tho testimony before the "Com mittee of riftcen," given bv Colonel 0. A. Hurt, with reference to Arkansas, and A. II. Stktiikis, the vice president of tho at tempted confederacy, in relation to Georgia. Col. IIerv served in tho Federal army; he was an ardent sympathizer with the North, and held the most cctrcmo views of his sec tion. Ho might have been claimed, and may now for aught we know, as a radical. At any rate, no rebel or copperhead infection ever tainted him. He has been in Arkansas during the war and snee the cessation of hostilities. His evidence is unimpeachable, and it is as encouraging to the hopes of loy alty as it is reliable in the matters upon which it Is offered Trom hun we learn that tho leading rebels, and almost without ex ception tho whole mass who had resort to treason, have jiclded a wilting compliance to the authority of the I cderal power, manifest ing an entire acceptance -of tho results of the strife, and a general determination to devote themselves to the duties in volved upon them as citizens of the United States, by faithful maintenance of its laws and support of its Government. He tells us that slavery has been abolished by conventional act, that rebel debts have been made void, equality of the negro race established asto personal and property rights, and that theso legislative provisions have been ratified bj popular vote. Trom him also we learn that order prevails, that indus try Is revived, that tho whites exhibit a friendly disposition towards tho blacks, that the latter are dlspobed to work faithfully, and seem contented, that seventeen thousund Arkansians were in the Federal service, that its State government is in the bands of men considered by him to be loyal, that the mem bers of the fcenato and House of Representa tives elect arc unconditional Union men, man of them hating sacrificed much for the loyal cause, and some brat ely mauitaining it at the peril of life upon the field of battle Such is the gratilying record that Arkansas has made according to the testimony of this Federal soldier "Vhilo it should mako the heart of patriotism glow to think so gnat a work basticcn douu for tho advance of our institutions and principles, it should also bring to ccrj honest check a blush of shame that, with such indisputable cvidei-cis of gen uine fcalt), and such bright examples of de voted loyally, holding her credentials of elec tion, Arkansas finds the doors of the Thirty ninth Congress shut against her representa tion, and its members stolid to her recogni tion. It is a strange coincidence that the evi dence of Mr SrEruEMi, a high rebel official, in all main points corroborates that of the Republican Federal officer from Arkansas With tho exception of the number of those who engaged in the Federal service, and the previous Union sentiments uf tlioso that Georgiu has chosen to represent her in the national councils, the story of the former is the story of the latter From Mr. SrEriicxs wc hate the sumc statement of complete submission to present druunstanccs The policy of secession is unit crsally abandoned, the unanimous desire is for a return to the national relations with the country, the un divided sentiment is for obedience to and participation with the United States Govern ment In that lies all their chances or calcu lations for the future Georgia, too, has given tho deathblow to slater), has repu diated rebel obligations and has by the most emphatic legislation placed her colored citi zens upon equal privileges, and subjected them to similar penalties for misdemeanors with the white race, conceding thereby every thing which was mooted as necessary while the stern struggle for national existence was progressing Mr hTEPUENS considers Geor. gia loyal, and dermis loyalty " to be lo) ul to law, order, and the Constitution to support the Ooiemmnit itndir the Cunttttulion." That definition is good enough for us It Is the one which tho founders of this Republic originated which this heroic generation rushed to arms in order to demonstrate at tho dread tribunal of war, and it is one hich will be accepted as final by our intelligent fellow-countrymen, who will hail with feelings of uninlngled gratitude its adoption through, out tho broad domain of their country Mr Stephens eajs that tho conduct of tho negro race is ' much better than the most hopeful looked for." Such testimony is cause for rejoicing, and is of more value to that unfor tunate race than all tho llureau or Civil Rights bills that human wisdom or human folly can devlie Mr SiEruExs also sat s, for himself, ' I should not bo Individually op posed to a proper system of limited or re stricted BufTrago ' to the colored population. He believes, as docs cter constitutional American, that this is a question solely within the Jurisdiction of the States Wc regard his opinion as of great weight It is entitled to respect, not only from his connection with the lamentable conspiracy against his Government, but from his long career of statesmanship in the olden days, and his su perior talents and vast Influence with Us community, which no sane man will under rate. If the negro of the South ever rises in the scale of society; ever becomes endowed with tho dignity of franchise, It will be by the efforts and examples of such men as A. II. STzriiEits, of Georgia. His manly avowal that individually ho docs not opp.ose a proper extension of suffrage, will do much to soften the public mind towards his connection with tho monstrous crime of treason, and will do more to clevato the black man than a thou sand polished orations from Ciurlm Slu ms, or a thousand brutal harangues from Tuaddivs Stevens. Arkansas is an Irrefutable, example of the wisdom-of Mr. Lixcoui's reconstruction pol icy, which was Inaugurated while the conflict was raging. Georgia is equally as Indicative of the justice and good sense of tho courso of President Jontsot in the lino of restora tion sinco the conflict ceased. How t ain are the puerile forts of tho bigoted partisan to malign that policy when whole communities and millions or people vindicate it by ineir spirit, laws and daily life. Tho froth or the radical foams harmlessly around tho base of these Indisputable facts. Thco States, ready to return, but waiting for recognition, hat maiched up to tho full line of duty ; laving conformed to et ry vital principle and Issue ; having surrendered every thing that an hon orable victor could claim for to concede what they conscientiously though wrong for tho sake of power would bo to render them selves unworthy the name of American and unfit associates or a noble people stand like monuments alike of the statesmanship and generosity of tho Executive and the antl republican, narrow, undignified, and un justifiable proscription of tho legislatit e de partment or tho Government. Well may President Jwinsoi trust the fate of his policy with the people. They will yet extend to it that cordial support which the) have ever given to the prescrvators of our liberties and institutions. In the long ran the people are sure to be right. They love Justice they worship liberty they tluig to their country as the temple of tho one and the palladium of the other. The policy of President Jouksok springs from the noblest promptings of mercy to save the grandest of human Governments. Tho day will come when every soldier will find that by it only can be upheld that unity and nationality which he fought to conserve, the Republican ill discover that by it only thoso free Insti tutions which were tho pride of his philoso phy can universally prevail; the Democrat will learn that the central tenet or his politi cal faith, tho key note of his boasted democ racy, the equal rights of all before the law, is an eternal principle, and in that policy finds its perfect exemplification. Tho Christian will be taught that in leading eight millions of erring Americans back to tho blessings of government back to the rule of law into the blessings of impartial liberty, and forward in the career or freedom, this Christian and conciliatory policy will not only reap tho re ward of earthly benefits, butrccclto also the approbation of heaven- the neiiknade this i:u:mmi.

Subscription and advertising patronage enables papers to "support themselves " Without such patronage tho Tribune would not bo "worth supporting " Hero are two Irishisms There are several other things about tho paragraph we quote from the Tribune of more importance than tho ubove 1st.

Clay, on tho grounds of consistency and fair play. ItsAja: "To hold Daiti and Clay while Rtepbens and Mmmti are released u nnjni tin able." The editor of Harper's IFeely, who Is usu ally very accurate in his statements, Is evi dently not nwaro of the diflercnco in the charges that were alleged against BTrrnxxs and S km urs and that still exist against Davis and Clay. The two former were rebels on general principles, participating In the havoc against tho Government under tho world-wide recognized rules of war. They were political prisoners only. The two latter violated the rules of war and, it Is alleged, perpetrated fiendish crimes that the most brutal warrior would condemn. The complicity of Davis and Clay with the horrid assassination plot, which not only de stroyed President Lincout, but also contem plated the death of Andrew Jonxsov, Wil liam II. Seward, Edwix M. Staxtov, U. 8. Urakt, and other heads of the National Gov ernment, Is so clearly demonstrated by evi dence that they could not by any means be placed in tho category with political prison ers. It is for this reason that Tub Prmident has been exerting himself, ever since last Oc tober, to bring Jeff. Davis to trial, first, be fore a jury on the plain charge of treason. That question beinj settled in the proper tri bunal, tho criminal, if not condemned to death, could afterwards be tried upon the other criminal charges which stand against him. 'lhe evidence upon which The Presi dent has acted has been laid before the House Committee on the Judiciary, within a few da) s, and they were ainazcdut Its clearness and strength.

It bears dat April 10th, and is address d to Mr, Grim is, th chairman of th Naval CommUte After referring to th grade of line officers, and the necessity of restricting some what th Increase proposed In th Hous bill, whll allowing 847 officers In all, In place of 712, as under existing laws, h says of th proposed selection of officers below Rear Admiral and abor uentenant l "Tha law authorising the advancement V offi cers for conspicuous conduct In battl has bn carried Into affect by th promotion of such hero as Farregut, Rodgers, Brown, Warden, WInslow and Cashing. The wisdom of th law which haa carried forward these olSoeri for distinguished service beyond their original position and rank, I have never heard controverted, "There are, however, many efficient and excel lent offioers in the navy that hare 'done rood eer vie daring th rebellion who cannot be legally reached In cobsequenc of th stringent terms of the law. It is Important indeed that the exercise of th power of selection should be carefully guard ed, and that selections should b judiciously and carefully mad. Under almost any circumstances they will be considered Invidious by those who may b superseded; and an extensive list of Irregular promotions would not only Impair th rain of such promotions to the recipients, but tend to demorali sation of the servioe Tho war having terminated. it Is eminently proper that those most distinguished should receive suitable professional rewards Diffi culty will, however, attend any selection that may be made, for, when ther ar no discriminations, satisfaction most follow Th records of th De partment, however, and the report of th officers, as well aa Investigations made, Indloat In most cases th few men who should b selected for mod erate Increase which Is recommended. Although It will not b possible to glv promotion to each and all who are deserving, I sincerely hop that Congress will not, on that account, or for any other cause, wholly Ignore the claims of those who have acquired acknowledged distinction In hard fought victories for the country."

He (Mr. G ) wu not In favor of establishing any suoh precedent as this bill proposed He wu opposed to establishing th bill that th contract price should not govern, that th cost might be swelled to what theypleuedj that Unci Bam could bear It, He begged Senators not to establish such a principle It would not do lo private Uf Tbey ould never be don settling th oostof this war If contractors wer to be paid for th depreciation of th currency after their contracts were mad Mr. Bumner said b wu happy to agree with th fundamental principle laid down 10 clearly by tb Senator from Kentucky, that lb rule must not be established that contractors should never lose, but he parted company with the Benator In his applica tion to the present ease If It had been la peace the Senator would have been right, but the times were exceptional If th contract had grown out of a period of peace, he Mr S should not b here to advocate them He bad plead on this floor for loos wno naa oonirinutea to our success tne sol diers and the freedmen and ther wu another olus which bad contributed u much to our suc cess u the soldiers, and, h wu almost about to say, as much u the freedmen, tb mechanics They had built and equipped th vessels which had so often turned the tide of battle, and It wu our duty to reeognli their great and momentous ser vices My friend on my right Mr Nye asks you to be magnanimous to these contractors I shall not uk yon to be magnanimous, I only uk you to be Jo t It Is an old saying that republics ar un grateful I hop that this republic will not be less grateful than any mooaroby. Mr Henderson did not with men to suffer who had done so much u the Senator from Massachu setts I Mr, Sumner claimed, but he had no evidence that losses had really been Incurred He did not understand that any obligation rested upon Con gress to abide by tbe report of the committee He oould not vote for tbe bill Mr Sherman said if these claims wer recognised ther would be no end to th deltas presented her Th Senator from Massachusetts (Mr Sumner) bad spoken of th claims of th mechanics, Ther wu no olus in th whole oountry that had less claims than this, because, owing to tb peculiar circum stances of tb war, no clus was more prosperous They bad had abundance of work and had been paid handsomely Their labor bad been tn demand on aocount of the great drain of men to tbe field' would com upon us If such a precedent a this wu ....kii.v,.

Mr. Eliot, of Massachusetts, from th Committee on Commerce, reported back a bill making appro priations for th repair and Improvement of certain Labors, and for other purposes, which wu read and referred to th Committee of th Whole on th stat of th Union. Mr Shanklln, of Kentucky, uked to be excused from farther service u a member of the CommUte for th District of Columbia, inumueh u be felt that be oould no longer serve on that committee with profit to th country or satisfaction to him self. He wu accordingly excused, Tbe remainder of the morning hour was devoted to the consideration of bills of a private character, reported from th Committee on Invalid Pensions. aSOCLAR ARKT. Th morning hour having expired, th Hous re sumed tbe consideration of the bill to reorganise and establish th army ff th United Stat, th ponding question being npon th fourth section, which reads u follows See 4 And bs t furthtr tnnttsd, That the In fantry regiments herein provided forsha t consist of the first ten regiments of Infantry, of ten com panies each, now In the service) of twenty seven regiments, lo be formed by adding two new com panies to each of tbe twenty seven battalions com prising the remaining; nine regiments; of ten regi ments, to b raised and officered u hereinafter pro vided for, to be called tne veteran iiescrr vorps, and of eight regiments of colored men, to be raised and offioered u hereinafter provided, to be known u United States colored troops Mr Schenck, of Ohio, addressed the Hous In luPDort of the section, directing his remarks more especially to meet th objections which had been urged against tbe retention of the Veteran Reserve corps In th regular servioe He explained that tb idea which prevailed to som extent that th bill provided ior tne iransieroi tn present veteran no serve bodllv Into th regular service was a mistake Tb bill simply allowed the admission Into ten out of tbe fifty fir regiments of Infantry of such man as had been wounded tn the line of duty, provided they were not so completely disabled u to render tbem unfit for light duty. Alt appointments of offi cers In the oorps, according to the bill, were to bo made only auer strict examination, naring reier once to capacity, good conduct and efficient service In every case Unless som suoh provision wsre made, tbe mere faot of having received a wound In the service of the oountry would be sufficient to cause the rejection of any applicant for admission Into tb ranks of th regular army, even though suoh wound might not tn any way Incapacitate the applicant for service Mr Schenck made a strong appeat to tbe House In behalf of th claims of tb wounded veterans to a plao In th standing army. Mr Conkllng, of New York, was of opinion that tb Veteran Reserve Corps ought not to b perpet uated u a part of the permanent standing army of the country He supposed that It wu no secret In th Hous that all of our most eminent Generals Grant, Sherman, Meade, Sheridan, Thomas, and a host of others bad been consulted on this Tory subject, and that this convocation of men, so Justly famous In military annals, had presented a state ment In writing of their views, In which they ex pressed their disapproval of this project of estab lishing a permanent Invalid or Veteran Reserve Corps H then sent to tb Clerk's desk, to be read, an extract from tbe opinion of thoso Gener als, In which tbey recommended omitting altogether th Veteran Reserve Corps from the organisation of tn Army, Acoora ngiy, m tn bin wnicn tno Don ate bad passed for the reorganisation of th Army, this provision for th Veteran Reserve Corps had teen left cut. But th Military Committee had disposed of th Senat bill, and in spit of th rec ommendations of these eminent military men, had reported th p-esent bill In its stead It wu not necessary to organise a special force Uk this for garrison and ngnt amy In tb regular army there were always more than enough men to garrison all the forts and to do all the light duty that was to be done And, indeed, Itwu one of the chief Incitements to good con duct and discipline In the army, and which had a tendency to preserve ana neignien its vmaie, tnai all portions or tne army naa tbeir turns in tne per rormanee or ngnt duty, wnientnus servoa as a rest tn those who wore worn down with the fatigues and hardships of more arduous servlo The veteran reserve corps bad been created to serve, and had served a temporary purpose merely) and be oould not admit what had been stated by tbe chairman of the Committee on Military Affairs, that at tbe time of the formation of the corps any Intimation had been given to Its members that its organisation was to be permanent. And, whatever might be alleged to the contrary, tbe practical effect of the bill would be to perpetuate the present veteran ressrve corps Mr Blaine, of Maine, replied to the remarks of Mr Conkllng, vindicating tbe notion of the com mittee H said that the gentleman certainly oould not have read the bill if ho thought that It transferred tb present veteran reserve, either In name or In fact, to tbe regular peace establish ment 80 far from doing this, th bill gar to th officers of tbe veteran reserve corps no single ad vantage orer any othsr wounded officer tn any part of the country. Mr Paine, of Wisconsin, said that whll In gen eral he had great respect for the opinions of the gentleman from New York, Mr, Conkllng, he seemed to be opposed to this bill s toto, and merely made objection to this reteran reserre corps clause without saying how be would hare tbe bill amend od so that he would support It His Mr P's Infer ence wu that the gentleman was prejudiced against the bill, and would not support it In any erent Mr Conkllng replied that the gentleman wu In error, as he would cheerfully vote for the bill if tt were amended so u to meet his views Mr Rogers, of New Jersey, said that while he entertained tho greatest sympathy for th brave soldiers who had been wounded In tbelr country's servioe, he would have th Hous remember tbat tbey wer now legislating to ereate an army which was to proteot tbe Interests of thirty millions of men an army wnicn miguc at any time no con fronted with the trained veterans of European governments Mr. Washburne, of Indiana, wu In faror of a certain kind of olass legislation, and tbat was for the protection and support of tbe families of those who hav fallen In the service, and also for th ad vancement of those who have beoom disabled in tbe war Mr Schenck then demanded the crevlons Ques tion on the proposed amendment to strike oat tbe clause wnicn provides ror tne estabiisnment or s veteran reserve oorps, and the demand for tbe pre vious question being seconded. Tbe Hous refused to strike out the clause yeu SO, nays 81. Tb Hous then took up for consideration the fifth section of tbe bill and after discussing the same at some length, and without coming to a rot thereon, Mr. Conkllng moved that until otherwise ordered tn evening sessions or tne House suouid be ais pensed with) end It wu so ordered Mr Detains, of Connecticut, rose to a personal explanation In regard to a paragraph which bad appeared In tbe riew York jimm, and wnicn bad given rise to some dlicussion In tb House on Mon dar.
