Eery day arrests are being mauo -every ween two or three, or more, courts-martial sit to try them. Tho men are condemned on suspicion: for it is very difficult to obtain tho proof which an American court-martial would re quire before conviction. And still Fenianism seems making rapid strides in every regi ment where an Irishman exists. Tho soldiers In the cities and towns In Ireland aro con stantly in publio bouses, drinking and con versing with civilians aye, and with those who are strongly suspected of disloyalty. As long as this continues England may expect Iter troops to become converts to Fenianism.

A corre spondent of a Boston paper relates the fol lowing rather amusing story : A gentleman dropped into one of our city churches one day lust week to hear a "noted revivalist," and, being a mere "outsider," lie modestly took a retired scat in tho gullery. At the close of the sermon, which was from the text, "Let me die tbo death of the right cons, and let my last end be like his," the preacher requested "all those present vtho would like to die the death of tho righteous to stand up." The gentleman in the gallery, feeling that he was only a "looker-on," re tained his seat, but he speedily found he should have risen with tho rest, for the preacher, after all were again seated, threw a withering glance into tha gallery, accom panied with the remark, "The number of those who did notriso is so small that 1 snail not tako adrantago of them." Moreover, somebody, in his immediato vicinity, audibly whispered, "Why here, in our very midst, is a man who doesn't want to die the death of the righteous;" and, again, as the gentleman was trying to escape unobserved down the stairs, he overheard one of the sisters say to another, (and in no undertone, either,) "Sakcs alive 1 if that isn't tho poor critter who is against dying tho death of the righteous I" Oeoroi Pkabodv.

(U DiabSir: Your communication of the 23d ultimo, requesting certain information as to aflalrs in Louisiana, Texas, and Florida, como duly to bond, but owing to my absence in Florida I havo been prevented from re sponding at an earlier day. In compliance with your request, I have the honor to sub mit herewith my opinions on the subjects tncrein particularised. Question. What are now tho feelings of thoso who took part in the rebellion, and sympathized with it, toward the General Gov ernment! Answer. I believe they accept the situation, and havo an earnest desire for tho restoration of a perfect Union, but exhibit, at the same time, an unmistakable desire to glorify rebellion. Q. Whiit has been tho effect of the un stinted exercise of tho pardoning power upon such persons; has it mode them more friendly or otherwise toward tho Federal Government? A. I havo noticed no particular change in sentiment on account of the clemency of the Executive! What would bo tho effect, In your opinion, upon tho State organisations if the people were left without control to act for them selves? A. I believe they would quarrel among themselves, and that the sensible and substantial people would regret the absence of the military force. Q. Aro tha affairs of the State now In the hands of loyal or disloyal men? A. A very large number of the offices of the State are in tho hands of returned confederate soldiers and other active participants in the rebel lion; I am unable to say what their actual sentiments are In reference to the General Government, but think their outspoken sen timents depend to some extent on what Is their best policy in order to hold tho office; I have seen those high in authority in a transition state for the same reason. Q. What are regarded as the chief recom mendations for ofuco, and what sort of per sons would be elected without any outside influence! A. The inclination to glorify re bellion gives those who were active partici pants in it tho preference for election by tho dcodIo and appointment bv thoso in cower. Q. What would be tho condition of tho loyal men if they were left without any pro tection by tno icucrai uorcrnment; A, My impression is that for the present they would feel unsafe, and many of them leave the country. Q. State your opinion as to the necessity for tho continuance of a military force in your department, and your reason for this opinion. A. I consider it necessary to main tain a military force in my division for the following reasons: To givo security to north ern capital and Union people, and to givo an actual and moral support to the frcedraan, until ho has time to work out his social status. I also believe its presenco necessary to prevent quarreling among tho Southern people themselves. 0. What is Your opinion as to tho neces sity and expediency of tho Frccdman's Bu reau! a. me xTceumans xiurcau gives that security to the frcodman which arises from having some one to look after and ad vocate his interests. A chance might be made by appointing an Inspector General of rreeumen, wun me necessary nunmcr oi as sistant inspectors, under the chargo of the Department uommanuer, wiiicn would oe much more economical; but it would be im posing duties on the military which I do not recommend, as I think it should haeus little as possible to do with civil affairs. Q. What would bo tho condition and fate of tho freedmen if left without protection and tho cxclusivo control of tbo whitu peo ple there f A. I fear there would bo a groat deal of trouble; a largo number of tho people would act in good faith towards them, but thero would bo many who would not, and a war of races to some extent would probably be the consequence. Q. State fully your opinion as to the ca pacity of tho colored people. What do thty know and to what extent can they excrclso tho rights of freemen! Are they willing or unwillinir to work without tihvsical compul sion, with kind treatment and fair wages; and stato what, in your judgment, is the best courso for Congress to pursuo In reference to theso people. A. Tho colored race, like all other races, havo different degrees of in telligence and capacity, in -New Linearis, whero colored people are better treated thmi in any other city In tho United Stales, thero Is on excellent state of soilety, and a very hlo-li deirrco of refinement exists in it. Start ing from this, you can go into tho State of L,oui8inna, anu uuu iuo coiurcu man uuoui us ignorant as it is possible for any human being to be. The freedmen, so far as I um informed, havo a great desire to learn. I cannot say whether they learn rapidly or not. I bcllevo they are willing to work, because their necessities compel them to do so. In this they arc liko ail other races. I never have known a white or a black man who was performing manual labor for the love of it. 1 bclicvo that the best thing that Oomrress or a State can do Is to legislate as llttlo as pos. slblo in reference to tho colored man, beyond giving hhn Bccunty in person and property; his social status will be worked out by the logio of the necessity for his labor j It is. the topitoa.

Please to make 'such suggestions as occur to your mind as to the most judicious and efficient remedies for the evils that exist in vonr department, irrowlni out of tha late rebellion. A. Tho feeling and sentiment of inose wunin tne limit or my command ts as good, perhaps, as could be expected; still not satisfactory. The people of Louisiana are poor, and to the best of my knowledge heavy mortgages exist upon, perhaps, the majority of plantations in the State, for debts con tracted beforo the war. In many instances thoso plantations will fall into the hands of northern people, who, from present appear ances, will, at no very distant period, control Louisiana, even in sentiment. Having this prospect before them, it is not surprising that a spirit of bitterness and discontent should exist I believe that a majority of the peo ple are not opposed to the General Govern ment and, in fact earnestly dosirs to bo re stored to a perfect union with, the other States. Still sufficient time has not yet elapsed to efface the recollection of their having been reduced from a condition of af fluence to limited means; the chagrin of being conquered, and to submerge tho Idea of glo rifylngrebelllon and its representatives. This latter idea and its consequences prevail to so great an extent, that I consider the reten tion of the military in Louisi&nal for some time as necessary for the security of emi grants, freedmen, and capital. Florida is not poor from old debts and havoc of war, like Louisiana, and tho tone and sentiment of the people ia very fair, and a great desire is manifested to restore tha old Union. Texas has increased in wealth by the rebellion. Among tho best people there is a very good feeling towards tho Government There is a class of lawless people there, however, which this sentiment does not control, and which cannot be controlled but by the military. The sentiment In this State will not change from the influence of Northern emigration and Northern capital, as in the Stato of Lou isiana. It is essential that tho military in considerable force be maintained in the De partment of Texas.

If there had been no other irrcat example of crying injustice perpetrated by the lladi cals in Congress uuder the lead of two or three Impractlcablcs than the arbitrary ex clusion from the halls of the National Capi tol of the loyal Heprcsentatives of Tennessee, mat alone, as a specimen oi soort-signteu and foolish tvrannr. giving the key-note as it has to all that has been dono since, was enough to have mada discreet loyalists lose faith in them as utterly unfitted by their nar row views to deal n ith toe complications of the hour. The men thus ungraciously and without the color of law or wisdom shut out were those who of all others "had borne tho burden and heat of the day;" had encountered personal perils and braved revolutionary excesses, as scarcely any other similar body of men of the same numbers nau uone in tno wuoie land; and who, clinging to the ark of the Constitution, and excrcisinga perfectly noble faith in the final justice of Government and people, justly expected that when the con- mcl was enucu iiieir services to tno union would bo honorably ucknowledired. and thev bo permitted to speak for the State which they had done to much to redeem from the louy oi secession, ana an tno woes wuicn followed in its train. But when they made their appearance at the Capitol, these men who should have been received with acclamation, with outstretched hands, found that a wonderful change had begun. The very men w ho, when the Gov ernment was in peril, looked all over the South to find and applaud any example of acvotion to tne union, no longer necuca their aid, particularly. The fact that there was such a thing as Unionism in the South on which to base appeals against wholesale sectionalism, was not, at last, essential; and, become masters of the situation by the con fidence of the people in their patriotism, they were tempted to play a game for continued power, begun in the interests of a restored nationality and of peace. Ascertaining that the new 1 edcral Executive was a man of his own com ictions and purposes, it became need ful to hunt up something to hold him in check; and what more obvious to little minds, to contracted partisanship, than to shut out his own State from the national councils, and in doing so, to get upsomo pretext by which bis own people might bo made to blume him for the exclusion from the halls of Congress of their immediato representatives. These astute mauagcrs " reckoned without their host" With some men, all this might have answered; but Andrew Johnson was not the one to comproralso the interests of the whole, by concessions to a moiety. Ho sternly and rightfully resisted tho miserable attempt at coercion, leaving the radical leaders in their angry disappointment to achioicledge that they kept 1 eunessee out to spite him. Now, in view of facts so patcut to the na tion and to the world; in view of the palpa ble wrong dono tho nation in its progress to wards restoration, it is tho duty of the people to rebuke selfish partisanship so glaring, wrong-doing so flagrant These men havo not trusted the President from the very first; and when they attempt to rido over hiin, to browbeat him, to punish a great Common wealth because in doing so they think to wound hhn, the whole nation should frown upon conduct so inexcusable, and appeal to tho cose of Tennessee as to tho climax of in justice and impolicy. Anu suppuae now mat iney were to aunm Tennessee at the cloenth hour, after all this pro urication, and double dealing, und disnluv of bitterness ! Is It in human nature to sup- Fiose tout nicy lune mauo cordial associates, rlends of the true men whose position and services as loyalists have been so tardily ami ungraciously acknowledged? llato Ihcy not with u foolishness unparalleled, dono what they could to drite them into the ranks of the opposition, to make of thein determ ined opponents! Tho folly is unparalleled, we repeat; and when Cougru has adjourned, and the hot diatribes of the Pennsylvania Thcrsltes hat e died u ay uud been forgotten, tho wiser men ainomrst them will fully appre ciate the lack of wisdom, and lack of inde pendence, woicu nas permttieu tnem to dcier to tho bitter utterances they should have contemned. Tho policy of reconstruction should have been simple perfectly direct loyalty was what should havo been fostered throughout the country, North and South. Hut what is the wisdom of that management which when undoubted lovaltv presents itself as exempli fied by tho perils und self-denials of men who ' havo canvassed their districts with pistols at I their heads and knives at their throats, who Ihsve massed as it were the patriotism of their State, yet when duly returned by loyal votes NO. 184. are driven back by comfortable gentlemen in possession, wno an their urea have round a showing of patriotism both pleasant and profitable I The country will yet reckon with them for this. And finally what Is the spectacle Inst now presented! Let these sharp managers take due note of the fact that tho country has long ago become impatient of conduct such as we have indicated; and let them once scatter to their homes; let them once lose tho power to meet In daily and nightly cau cus in order to whip in the restive, to pacify the alarmed, and their power to wield their forces scarcely now hanging together is gone.

They see tho injustice of the treatment toward Tennessee; they penetrate the littleness of the motives which have governed those who for so long a period hare postponed that peaco the nation fought for, and should have enjoyed ere this. Given the noblest oppor tunities ever bestowed upon men upon a legislative body to benefit a great people, they havo not been equal to the task; and when tho tlmo comes far the people to pro nounce upon their course, the latter will send men to the national capital who better understand the policy of giving to us a re stored Union.

The Independent agrees to some of the features of tho plan reported by tho recon struction committee, but declares that it has utterly failed to satisfy the expectations of thoso who havo supported the committee as against the President's policy. It says : Toe proposed plan, however, is a stalk ol manv srrecn leai cs. but without the one blos som of our hope. What has become of the I'resldents letter to Uov. rjharkey, saying that all neeToes who foucht for the Union. and all negroes who can read, ought to have the ballot? Wo thought the committee would take this bud of promise, coax it open Into fuller bloom, and give it back to toe Presi dent to encourage him with a proposition of impartial eunrage. We do not say that the National Legisla ture has a right or has no right to dictate terms of suffrage to tho States. But we main tain that if Congress has a right to declare, in advance, to Mississippi, "You shall not be represented in these Chambers till you hare ratified a constitutional amendment ditfran chising your relelt," then it has the same right to say, "You shall not be represented till you have ratified a constitutional amend ment enfranchising your blacks." If any argument was ever as clear as toe sunshine, so is this. Certainly, the negro and his friends have a just right, in this respect, to bo dissatisfied with the committee's proposition. It lacks the expected measure of equity. It is marked by that same moral backwardness, that same dangerous trifling with justice, which was witnessed in tho Senate a few daj s ago when Colorado, with a constitution denying the political rights of negroes, received the as sent of that body to become a State, May God denyus the gift of anymore States that trample on His own decree of the brother hood of man! But Henry Wilson, wanting two mora votes to make a workiug majority in the Senate, grasped at Colorado as at a froldcn apple, forgetting that, sooner or later, t would bo certain to turn to ashes in his hand. "Be not deceived: God is not mocked!" (ienerstl Cnsus. The editor of the La Crosse (Wisconsin) Democrat, who is now in Detroit, writes as follows: "General Cass is still alive, though his family have gathered hero in daily expecta tion of his decease. The General is now in his eighty-fourth year. He passes most of his time in sleep, undisturbed. At rare in tervals ho wakens up sufficiently to ask for some of his old friends, who aro sent for, but on arriving, even within the hour, he is gen erally asleep again. His disease is softening of the brain, from years of mental labor in the scrvicoof bis country. Ho has all the cure, attention, and nursing it is possible to give. His family look upon him with the greatest reverence and affection, and pray that his last day on earth may be far dis tant. At times no is able to converse quite freely and rationally with his family, but this Is the exception, not the rule." Sambo's Foot Planted. Tho Petersburg (Va.)

At no moment could he see tho surging crowd so abate as to afford him an opportunity to secure his prise without a contest with some disputant.

It proposes: ' First A new constitutional amendment guaranteeing equal protection to life; liberty, and property to all cltltens of the United States; apportioning representation In. Con gress according to voters, and not according to population; forbidding the payment of the rebel debt, and depriving all persons who voluntarily took part in the late rebellion of the right to vote for officers of the Oeneral Government until July 4, 1670. Secondly. It proposes bill keeping out Senators and Representatives from tne States lately in rebellion until these States ahall have adopted the above amendment as part of their State constitutions. Thirdly. It proposes another bill declaring ineligible to federal office persons who served the rebel causa in certain prominent capaci ties. What the country expected from Congress was a practical scheme for hastening the re establishment of all tho States in their full constitutional relations. This report pro duces a plan which must inevitably put off this end, so strongly desired and demanded. Does anyone believe that the southern States will accept the proposed constitutional amend ment? Certainly they will decline. They will say, " Let us see what the next elections in tho North develop. This Congress may recommend the amendment; the next Con gress, which is to be chosen in the fall Of tho present year, and which may meet on the Kl -r ir.-.t. ID . I.- -a- - J:ir . iiu w -uanu, aoui, ujuy ue Ul B ulucrcjlB mind; it may repeal all that this Congress has enactea; wo naa better wait" Tho "restoration of the State to their practical relations in the Union," as Mr. Lin coln happily phrased It is therefore put off, if this report is accepted, for at least another year ; and the practical result of the labors of the reconstruction committee will bo to havo made np a platform on which thoso who chooso to stand upon it may go before the country at the fall election. That is all and, in our judgment that is not enough to satisfy tbo country. It is hardly worth while to discuss the. merits of measures which to be valid must be accepted by communities which are sure to reject them; but we may remark that it is not probable so heavily-taxed and so poor a people as those of the Southern States will assume the payment of the enormous and wastcfully-contractcd rebel debt and that no parly would ever dare to go before the people of this country with a proposition for the United States to assume this debt, whoso certificates are held chiefly by foreign specu lators upon tur national rain. Further, that It is scarcely probable the people who have a majority m tho South will voluntarily dis franchise themselves; and that tho extremes to which partisan passions have been in flamed in Tennessee by the disfranchisement of the greater part of tho population there, does not encourago practical men to look for the fruits of peace from such a policy. enforced elsewhere. Even tho reconstruction committee ac knowledge that "it is expedient that the States lately in insurrection should, at the earliest day consistent with the future peaco and safety of the Union, be restored to full participation in all political rights." Now, what liave we already, to secure "future peace and safety!" In the first place, wo havo the civil rights act, under which any cilirenwho is denied justice by local or Stato courts is empowered to appeal to tho United States court, which is commanded, with all its machinery, to interfere m his be half, and, if necessary, to use tho military power of the United States to secure him justice. 8nrely no citizen need suffer wrong while this act remains. In the next place wo have a form of oath, prescribed by Congress, which makes it impossible for any one who voluntarily engaged in rebellion to enter Congress or to hold any Federal office, with out committing perjury, for which ho may and ought to be indicted and punished. Finally, we havo the Freedmen's Bureau for a whofo ) car, during which, with a wiso and conciliatory policy, we may hope the labor question in the South will assumo something of its normal condition. But let us-not forget, on the other hand, the dangers which attend impracticablo measures. Suppose, going before the peo plo on this platform built by tbo congres sional committee, wo are beaten ! In that event we may be sura that the next Con gress will not only refuso to make the de mands whirh this one makes, but it will most probably repeal the Civd Rights act ami the test oath; and thus our own impru dence will have sacrificed the great objects we huvo already gained. The amendment proposed is right enough, if tho reconstruction committee can get any Southern State to accept it. But unless they do so, it is of course only a shot in the air, which may be right and true, but will hit no where unless, indeed, it falls upon the heads of the gunners. Is it not far wiser for Con gress to make snre of what It has done; to cry enough for this time; to be content that it lias secured the supremacy of law and jus tice in all our territory, and to admit at once to their scats all Representativ ea and Sena tors who tan take the prescribed oaths ! Ono Congress cannot bring about the mil lennium; there are years to come, In which we may all join upon a platform of larger liberty, and argue tho questions and urge the reforms which still remain. For this tlmo wo have reason to be content; for we havo put down armed resistance to the laws, and Congress has given us, in tho civil rights act, a guaranty for freo speech in every part of tho Union.
