WEDNESDAY MORNIHa-ssv.-AVBH. J, 18M. THE JOIINNON UNION DEMON. NTRATION IN CONNECriCinV The convention of the leaders of the Union party of Connecticut, held at Hartford laat week, tho full report of tho proceedings of which appeured in the RirCBUCaN Monday, is hailed by the friends of tho Government orcrynhcro as a healthy sign of tho times. It has proved a terrible blow alike to tho copperhead and tho reptile press of tho conn try, and is universally received by tho legiti mate Union party press of the country ns a timely, truthful, and highly patriotic pro nunciamento of the great constitutional doc trines upon which tho National Union-party is founded, and tho only platform upon which tho party can stand before the poople with the slightest hopo of success. Tho New York Time,, referring to the Con necticut meeting, says : It was not a "copperhead" gathering. Its preliminary resolve was that nono should participate in its proceeding "who did not support the Oovernment during the late re bellion, and who did not sustain tho candi dates or the Union organisation at tho recent State election." Moro than tills could not have been required by any man. And that those most activo In tho aOair are not with out influence in tho party, may be inferred from the presence omonir tho officers of the meeting of Mr. Wikchestkh, tho Lieutenant uovcrnor elect, ana Mr. 1'eibk, tbo newly chosen Secretary of State. To this voice from Connecticut, then, we aro bound to give respectful attention. The conditions under which tho meeting was held, tho party standing of the gentlemen who are identified with Us proceedings, the adoption of resolutions upon which President Joiiksox and his supporters can consistently rally as a party platform, the manly tone and liberal spirit of tho address to the electors of the State all aro calculated to allay tho appro- ncnaions 01 me oouin, anu io sircngincn uie hands of those who would preserve tho Union party from tho domination of an extreme party. The resolutions to which WIS refer point out as the especial dutv of Comrress and the Kxccutive tho adoption of "healing meas ures to promote "too immediate restoration of confidence throughout tho Union," favor "the immediate admission to their seats in Congress" of loyal Itcprcsentatlvcs and Sen ators from the Southern States; repudiate tho doctrine of Stato suicide, and declare that the Southern States continue "as be- loro, entitled to all tho rights and privileges which they possessed under the Constitu tion," express tho conviction that the meas ures supported by the majority in Congress aro "not calculated lo promote the mutual confidence upon which alone the Union can bo sustained," and applaud the "just and magnanimous policy" of tho Tresident. as opposed to tho "opinions of impracticable theorists" and tho taunts and abueo of "un scrupulous and vindicth c enemies." These vievs are elaborated with statesmanlike clearness and comprehensiveness, in tho ad dress adopted by the meeting. As between tficso conflicting opinions, we cannot believe that tho sober sense of the Union party will long remain in doubt or hesitation. Its distinctive nohev bcinr tho maintenance of the Union against all ene mies, tho views which must ultimately pre vail are thoso favorable to "kcallng meas ures" for the restoration of national har mony. Instead of measures based unon tho theory of subjugation and tho unrestrained assertion oi tno rignts or conquerors. TUB rilKSlDEST UKtrOUUS TIIK FEO PLE. Tho ablo Washington correspondent of the Iloston Eiming Commercial, writing, under the above head, an account of tho Presi dent's speech to tho soldiers and sailors, says "As Andrew Johnson stood on AVcdnesday evening before the soldiers and sailors and spoko the noble words which havo found their nay to minions or readers rejoicing the hcarta of the people because it enlightens their mmds and binds them to tho President by new and "stronger ties ho presented a picture, an outlino of which I will attempt to convey. Andrew Johnson Is a man of marked phjsiquej with strong and decided character istics. Of about tho middlo height, he stands compact and firm in the vigor of manly strength. Thero is a self assertion in hit bearing which shows a confidence In himself, inspires confidence in others. His physiog nomy is indicative of a decided character; a marvellous firmness of purpose and a power ful will Hut It discloses other characteris tics a deep, searching, and Inquiring mind There are traces of thought In every linea ment of his countenance. Ho never would be mistaken by the most superficial observer for a flinpery sentimentalist; but would in stinctively be known as ono who seeks out hidden causes by the profoundest and most fiatlent investigation, and as one n ho, having ormed his opinions by such methods, would stand firm and undaunted amid storms and commotions (hat would sweep less confident ability into an abyss of uncertainty and of doubt. "'there is a keen, sagacious expression about him that showB to the student of faces ho is not a roan to bo taken in by specions words, fallacious arguments, or sounding rhetoric Tlattery loses its force expended on such a charaiter. He is separate and apart from any such influences. lie looks at men and things with his reason and his judgment, and not with his imagination. 110 is a siern, vigorous anu original uiiuKcr. Architect of his fortunes, winning his position by his own unaided strength from " those twin jailers of the daring heart, low birth and iron fortune," he feels that he has a right to assert this independence, and he foils his manhood strong within him In all his ca reer, in tho wonderful rise he has experienced from his humble sphere through overy station of public honors, until tho highest rank tho world owns is his, ho has never forgotten tho people ; ho has never failed to sympathize with them ; to enter heartily and with his wholo soul, because ho understood them, into all their hones and fears, their Joys and sor rows. Of tnem, ho has always been with them A laboring man himself from tho beginning; an humble mechanic from the start) untaught in eerythlng, save tho craft by which he was to all appearances to earn his scanty bread, he has hewed himself out a carter that is at onco the wonder, the boast, and tho pride of our Institutions, thot can so fashion such a roan from sui.li an unpromis ing start "Mr. Johnson evinces reraarkablo ability as an orator. He stands s(uarcly to his audi uico and looks them unflinchingly in tho face. He has a wonderful command of lan guage, which is shaped la terse, strong, and striking sentences, while his voice, clear, and sonorous, rings out as the sound of a clarion. Every word is enunciated with such marked distinctness it U understood the moment it reaches the ear. I have no doubt, from what I heard last night, he could address an audi ence 01 nity uiousanuana tnrow Ms volco to too outermost circio or so great a multitude. His manner is emphatic and very nlcasinir. accompanied with appropriate action of head and arms and face, and with fine modulation 01 mo voice to suit uo uougut or the feeling he is attempting to convey. I think tho President is very much at homo as a speaker in larse meetings of the nconle. and J can readily understand the secret and the source or tne power ne nas wielded with so mucn eucci among tno people wno havo come under his influence." Crop at the Month. It Is quite fortunate for the people of the South that nature harto reconstruction committees, and docs not caro for political abstractions. She accepts tho service of men and rewards them according to their labors, and thus it happens that whdo the political statin of the Southern States is in iimbo, tho agriculture of that region is being reconstructed by millions of hands wielding the hoo and guiding tho plough. Reports from the South aro uniform in representing great activity in planting, that frcedmen are industrious, and tho prospects for large crops aro excellent. Cotton has been exten sively planted, and a heavy crop will bo raised, and must command very profitable prices. The cotton States will purchase pro visions largely of tho Northwest and manu factured good from the East, and thus a pro cess of reconstruction will go on quite be yond the control of Congressional commit tees. In Virginia there were lugubrious reports of wintcr-kllled wheat, but it is now staled by the Richmond press that accounts from all parts of the State represent a great im provement in tho condition of tho growing crop. Fields that appeared to havo been frozen out aro covered with living green, and promise a good yield. Of courso much corn will be raised, and there will bo no lack of food In Virginia.

At the same tune, you state that it is j our opinion that the funds have not j ct been fur nished. Tho case thus presented renders it proper that I should call your especial atten tion to my dispatch, No 1 G7, which bears the date of and is Bent forward this day. In preparing that dispatch I anticipated the case, substantially, which ysnr communica tion now presents. You cannot, while prac ticing tho courtesy and respect which ore due to tho Austrian Government, bo either too earnest or too emphatic In the protest you havo been directed to make, hi per forming this duty you may be assisted by in formation of the actual state of tire question concerning French mtcrvention in Mexico at the present moment. Willi this view I irive 3 ou, confidentially, a copy of my note ud dressed to M. Montholon, on the 12th day of Pebruary last. Ab yet no reply has been re ceived to mis note, nor nave its contents be come public. You will therefore see the propriety of being discreet in suth use of It as you may find it necessary to make. After reading th it paper jou will bo justified in saying that tho American Oovernment and people would not bo likily to bo pleased with seeing Austria at this juncture assume tho character of a protector to the foreign military power which, claiming tho power of an empire, is attempted to be Bet up upon the supposed subovrtcd foundations of the Republic of Mexico 1 am, sir, your obedient servant, William II.
