Aler. snder II Stephens, of Georgia, is Again In our midst. Despite tho serious fears entertained last winter regarding his health, he now comes to Washington, after an ACtlvo part In the constitutional contention of his State, looking more tigorous and healthful than ho haa for many yean past. His Judgment Is so co rrect and his prophetic vision ao true that his say logs have got to bo regarded as oracular, and seldom prove contrary to tho predictions. in me present state or political surmises, thcrtforo, as to the organization of tho next Mouse of lie preventatives, and the manner In which Cona-rcM would reaard the President soveral policies, it was deemed Interesting to consult tho tenerable statesmen on these aub- ircU, aud to that end a rcpreaentatlt o of Tiiic trrtnucsH calM upon Mr. Stephens last otrning An auaience was At once granted our reprcsentath e, and Mr. Stephens, who was seated In an easy rolllug chair smoking a clay phw and surrounded by two or three Georgia friends, without thelent reluctance consent ed to bo lntert lowed as follows lit porter. Mr. Stephens, a great deal has bceusiild as to the doling of the next Congress regarding the President's policy, do you think that thero will Imj a serious opposition mani fested towards ttio Pnwklent, eitlior by Iemo crata or dian dieted KcnubliiansT Jiir. htepiipiis no, air, 1 think Mr. Hayca policy will bo unanimously sustained by the Democrats. Of course, there may be some Democrat In the House who will ho disponed to pronounce ngnimt t'is talldlty of htstttlo to tho Presidency, but so far as the nets of tho Administration aro concerned, airettlng public questions of Interest to the isjtintry in general, I think the President will bo unanlmouslr sustained hy tho Democrats and, a.s Htimtor Ininrd suhl. hrscten tenths of tuo Kenuhll cam In both Housts of Congress. When I sat "acts' of the Administration, l mean the puri fication !oHcv as well as other things. Kiportir. Well, do you think thut the Ad mlnNtritlou will detilon surUiIent stnusth lu tho Houso to rt ndcr portalble the election of a coiiiproniian or Administration ciud Idate for rtjwiKurr Mr.lStenhcus No, I think that tlicro will bo an Administration candidate, as the tendency now is towanl tho conclusion that the President will not hite anything todo w 1th tho question of the pcnkcnih!p Keportcr. Who, then, do jou think will be the ilioleo for SponkerT Jitr Miniifiis, it is my opinion, as 1 told you In an Interview ljtt spring, which was pub lishftl in jour paicr, that tho Houso wilt organize upon a Democratic basis I Also think that Mr. Hund-.11 w ill bo elected Speaker, I hate como to this conclusion from the fact that I think tho country owes Mr. lUmlall a debt of gratitude for his act t In tho chair last winter, in not yielding to the nllibustcrlng mot ement.w hick aimed to breakup the Uettoral Commission and leaving the country In a state of con tuMon that would, in my opinion, hato led to acitllwar. Ho displaced it finnncus and In flexibility of mmwMOon that occasion that ought ever to he rctncmlwred. His action then was unsurpassed by ant tieakcr 1 ever saw, oxcipt, pcrnap!, Spraki r Cobb In 1B50. We would have had acitllwar then with any other person than Cobb as Speaker. I ad tuft mat itvas loruox last rear, nut Jtandaii having received the nomination by a decided majority tote of his party, and listing made a much better Speaker than I expected. I think all things considered together with hisexptrience, Ac , that he undoubtedly has u right to expect tho Speakership, I think this not because I tike Cox leas, but because If Randall were not re-elected it would be a censure upon him for what I consider the best ait of his life. Keportcr. Do you think that this debt of gratitude, as vou term It. is sutuctent to nut down all other considerations, eteu that in consequence of Mr. IUudall's opposition to the lexas l'ACincronuT Mr. Stephens, I nm clad - ou suggested that point I am dcildcdly in favor of the Texas Pacific road. I hate seen it stated that Mr. Randall is n gainst It. How such could be the case 1 don't know, but I cannot belie vo that his antipathy to It would be strong enough to cnuso him to corruptly or gautre the committee, with a lew to defiat the hill. As a friend of that measure I would much prefer tu seo him lu the i hair, If no urn not aouso tno powers or the cimtrin tho appointment of tho "ommlttees, than ou tho floor; for In the :hatr he will hate no toto except in case of A tie. whereas If he were ou the floor he could constantly oppo".o and tote eguiust any measure lie disratored 1 would any tlmo rathtr hate an honoat oppo nent in the chair than on tho floor. Keportcr. Aro thero no other objections to Mr. ltaudalir Mr. Stephens, tea. it Is said that he will eucouutcr opposition on acton nt of the action no toot regarittug tuo ninoustering movement last year, which In my opinion was tho most atiiksuunHke aud in trio tic act of his life. Another ohjcctiou Is raised to him on account of his position on the tariff question. He Is a protectionist While I am a free trader so fur as the Constitution permits It, still I Am of the opinion that Mr. llandall can do us more harm on tho floor than In tho chair, except that he abuses the powers of the chair, and that I tako It for grunted ho will nut assume to do. Ho will let tho House carry out Its own views without attempting to control it. Iteiwrter. Suppose, however, that the Ad ministration frlemU of the President from tho North combine with th,e South and some good Southern man Is put forward, do you not think his chances of sua eta would be promising? Mr Stephens. Such a course I think would bo unjust to Mr. Randall. Of course, I would 1 pleased to see tho South get tho Speaker ship if such could bo tho case without doing on Injustice to Anyone. I think, however, that It is due to Mr Rjndall that he should hate the Speakcndiip for the service he has ren dered the countn in doing what probably few other men would hit e had tho ncrt e to do I sin not Influenced lu iny t lews at all by sec tlonul fitting I would Just as loave have a nun from tho North as from the South if he was equally capible, and other circumstances rendered his claim moro worthy of considers tlon. Reporter. What dojou think the general feeling Is South regard lug tho President's Southern policy? Mr. Stephens I never speak of It as tho President's Southern policy. I approve it, as does the entire South, becauso it is constitu tional policy H is right in Itself, And will restore peace, uarmonr anu imincauon to toe country, and It Is the only principle upon which the American federal institution can work harmoniously. Reporter How do the people of the South regard the Presldi nt's Southern trios? Mr. Htepheus I don't think there ever was n more euthinria-stlc demonstration given to any rrcsmcut sincu me mrmation ot tins iiov eminent to equal that recently given Mr Hat en at Atlnut t It would hat e been dually as iircat lu Augusta If he had gone third, A4 well as iu all the other cities In the State of Georgia At Atlanta It was but the expres slou of the sentiment of the entire State. Mr, Stephens will leave here about Hal unlay lor iiaiumoio, wuere ne will stop a lew uajs on a vlilt to his old friend Col. Johnson, at Penlucy Institute, near tha city. Hu will thonco proceed to New York, wber he will remain about eight or ten days, and will return heie abont the 13th proximo. ARRKSTKD FOR BIQAMY. CitARI mtoy.

If necciuuiry, to rrinntn there, for the purpose of affording protection to the Inhabitants. The report of Captain W hito was rec'lved nt theTrcAsury Department on the 3d Instant. Captain White does not consider that tho affairs at Sitka were an irltlcil as to demiud tho contlnuod presence of the putter nt that ptaee A teh grain haswlthln ft few days 1ecii sent to Captain White at Astoria, Oregon, In quiring when.

A further report from Captain White, dited Port Townsciul, the 11th Instant, was received nt the Treasury on Monday list This Inst retMirt agrees with the first npmt of Captain White, and contradicts rci-orts from other sources It la tho helicfnf ofllcUli here that all reports aliout prospective disturbances In Aliski are made In tho Interest of traders who are anxious to hate the military post rccstah- nsncsi, merely lor ine proms oi inue with tno o flit era and soldiers who m to iu.imi: pon tiu. m'iikai. tip Tin i-ati-nt offki I tit!
