"When we reflect that the um great political-party
which elected Andrew Jonxsow
Vice President of the United BUles, alto
chose the present majority to Congress, and
that In the fall of 18M a common sentiment
animated the candidates and the supporters
of the Baltimore platform, no one in the
ranks of the Union hosts doubting for a mo
ment the unadulterated patriotism of Presi
dent Jonxaoir, we may well express surprise at
the strange animosity which has sprang up in
the National Legislature against The Prcm
fczsT, and ft Is worth our while to obtain, if
possible, the mo tire or secret of it It Is not
became Tin President has departed from
any principle enunciated at the Baltimore
contention, for he has persistently adhered
to every project, purpose, and idea then and
there adranced. It is not that he has aban
doned the policy of Mr. Lixcolx, which that
great body of loyal men came together to
vindicate, and which the peoplo so coniplcu-
onaly ratiflea, Tor he took that policy just
where our martyred President left it, and has
with religious devotion carried it forward to
almost complete success. It Is not for any
dereliction tn the consummation of emancipa
tion, for the special feature of President
Johnson's course has been to make the lib
erty of the slave real, substantial, and uni
versal. Neither Is it because of his position on the
Fuffrage question. On that question Tax
President stands clear and unequivocal. lie
advocates qualified suffrage without distinc
tion of race or color as the policy of the com
munity; as tho voluntary act of the people of
the State, who by law and enstom have ever
controlled this matter; and opposes any Im
position of suffrage by the unconstitutional
exercise of power on the part of Congress.
At the committee on reconstruction have re
ported a constitutional amendment, which
abandons any attempt by Congress to en
force suffrage by central legislation, leaving
the whole question to the several States, thus
most unmistakably endorsing his position, we
cannot find the reason of congressional an
tagonism to him In this direction.
Neither is it to be found in the differences
which exist as to restoration. Congress ad
mits, with The Preridext, that for the com
mon good of all, the work of restoration
should be immediate. Tue President thinks
that the right of representation Is inherent to
the States within the American Union, and
that loyal delegates should come In at once.
Congress wants them to first ratify some un
important amendments before such admis
sion. The greatest point of difference that
manifests itself between the Executive and
legislative departments of the Government is
contained In the fact that the A ministration
believes that sound policy and the present
condition of the country demand that the
people of the South should participate, as
Americans, in the Government which they
are now pledged to uphold and defend, and
Congress opposes such participation until
after the next presidential election. This
would hardly seem to be sufficient ground
for hurling at President Johnson tho most
unsparing invective, or charging him with
the most malignant treachery and the most
stupendous crimes.
The trouble arises from the diversity of
sentiment on the present situation of affairs.
The President and his Cabinet? view the
matter In tho light of peace ; Congress in the
light of war. The one regards the rebellion
as crushed; the other seems to consider it as
yet in full operation- Congress reflects the
prejudices, the passions, the vehemence of the
martial period in which they were elected
Then war raged, and there were vast rebel
armies In the field, and rebel corsairs on the
sea, and many States in the attitude of re
volt The air was filled with the roar of
hostile cannon ; victory was far from certain,
and the heroes of the nation were daily being
added to the sainted roll of honor. It was in
the "heat and temper "of such times that
the Thirty-Ninth Congress was chosen, and
it seems to retain all the rage and rancor of
that season of blood. This is why wo hear
in the congressional halls so much said of
the "public enemy," when none exists; of
red-bund cu iocs," when no foe lifts his im
pious hand throughout our boundaries ; of
"black-hearted traitors, when treason has
lowered its crest in every State of tho Re-
Tub Presidevt and his counsellors, guided
by a wiser and more Christian impulse, have
buried with the war its savage and inhuman
spirit They furled with the victorious ban
ners of the nation the rage of conflict, and
when peace came they accepted its issues
and used Its language. The Administra
tion, in distinction from Congress, represent
the emotions of gratitudo for tho resrna of
the land, instead of the memories of hatred
for tho Be who Imperiled it It weighs, judges,
and directs events as they now exist, not as
they transpired two ears ago. Remember
ing that the majestic blessings of peace dawn
on our land once more. The President and
his associates are Inspired by its necessities.
and ruling with reference to civil instead of
military law, they comprehend the wants of a
nation rather than of a section, and grasp the
destinies of a Republic rather than the mere
fortunes of a political party. Herein lies, in
our judgment, the difference between The
President and Congress.

from these men during the rebellion, that
what looks like a sjmptom of permanent

lonor. That shrewd observer, Thurlow

they bau so spoken, a gooa deal or money
and a good many lives would havo been
thereby saved, liut let us forget the un
savory past, and try to remember only the
filain duties of the present. I am for joining
lands with all good men in the honest fulfil
ment of these duties. That part of my old
friend's letter in italics is evidently his strong
point. Hut there is a wide new field of work
opened for tho reformer now that slavery has
been destroyed. Ifitbctrue 'that slavery
was the strength and theyeaknessofboththe
great political parties,' it is equally true
that the end of that wickedness has im
posed many new obligations upon these
organizations. '1 hat they must bo national

for the honors. Unhappily, however, the

Knickerbockers still adhere to the wretched
sectionalism that fomented and forced the
war, and are not even generous enough to

Nay, so poorly impressed are they with the
example of the New Yorkers, that they have
not the courage to drop their factions pledges
and follow it There is one fact that all the
fiolitielans must accept before they begin to
ay tho foundations of their new temples, viz:
The majority of the American people are rfr
lolied that slavery shatl be buried so deep
thai tt shall never strengthen or weakeneither
party or country. This is not a condition
to the formation of a partyj it is the condl
tion of its existence. The men who accept
that fact will carry the elections, whether they
call themselves Republicans, Democrats, or
Johnson men."

Qneatlonattl Conduct of th Fentane In
A Portland (Me.) paper assert a that th Fenians,
on their return from Eaatport, behaved very badly
on tb boat Their tickets entitled them to a cabin
paaaage, but th boat being vary crowded they were
obliged to take steerage passage, and tb difference
In price waa refunded to them.
When night 'cam they appropriated the greater
part of th cabin to their own use In spite of the
remonstrance of the officer! of tb boat. At Fort
land th most of tht Fenlana went on shore, and
after waiting a reasonable time, tb boat started
out. Th Fenlana on board compelled ber to re
turn. Marshal Clark appeared on th aeene of notion
and word was given oat that the steamer would not
proceed until later In tb day, and they betook
themselves to tht Boston train, delaying It some 20
mlnutee. Bat few of them purchased tickets, and
th remainder crowded on board with a manifest
determination to go, ticket or no ticket.
Otis of the aldermen from the " Hub," who
rejoices In being not only a Boston alderman, but
th controlling mind of th Cotntnonwattk, oam
to Washington a fsw daya ago and turned up hla
nose at nearly everything her. II turned op bis
nose at our city government, our schools, at mem
ber! of Congress, at tb whit House, and, in point
of fact, at nearly everything he saw, hla probosclo
reaching Ita highest elevation, of oours, at sight of
the President. It la possible that th scorn which
this alderman feels for things beyond his own city
and bis own self la founded In part upon the fact
that Boston rejoices In th champion dog-flgbter of
America, 'Arry Jennlnga, who haa within tb laat
three montha pursued a brilliant career In the cities
of tht West, wlnnlog all his lights until, on hla
homeward trip, hla champion dog wu killed In
Buffalo by Jot xiellre dog "Pepper," whereupon
Jennlnga purchased the champion killer for $500 and
returned to Boston triumphant.

The Mobile tfationalttt reviews all the es
timates of the next cotton crop, (D Bow's and
others,) and cornea to the following conclusion
"From tht foregoing premises wt cannot set how
It will be possible for the forthcoming crop to fall
below 3,000.000 bales, and should not be surprised
If It should reach 4,000,000. W hav com to
these conclusions with regret, for we believe that
no greater calamity could befall tbt South than a
8,000,000 balsa crop of cotton, carrying tht price
down, aa It will be sure to do, below tb aotual
coat, at present blgb prices, of raising It."
