FRIDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 7. 186C The Third I)I.trictlJcgiatirc Caucus. Fill Endorsement or Hon. W. 0. Sunn The position of Mr. Smith in reference to the Congressional nomination has been consistent and honorable one throughout. He elated freely, as soon as he was informed of Mr. Baxter's withdrawal, that he did not uesire to be a candidate as the nominee of Mr. Baxter, or of any clique ; but only as the choice of the majority of the party, and with a reasonable prospect that the party would cordially unite on bim at tho polls. With that view, supposing that after Mr. Baxter's withdrawal the people would be fully represented by their delegates at Hyde- park, he agreed to accept the nomination of that Convention, if it fcliould be tendered him ; and with the same putpobc, under standing that a considerable portion of the party claimed that they were not represented at Hydrpark, he on Wednesday cvcniDg last submitted the question to a convention of tht members of the Legislature from the Third district, as the only body in any way represent!!);; the people that could be as sembled before election. The Caucus organized bv the choice f Senator Ilendee of Lamoille Co as chairman and Frederick M. Van- sieklen, of Burlington, as Secretary, Henry Burt, Esq , of Swanton. stated that the object ol the meeting was to en deavor to heal the unhappy divisions in the Hepubliesn titty of the 3d Congressional District : he had been informed that Hon. Worthington C. Smith, one ol the gentlemen named for Congrats had offered to submit his claim to the Senators ami Keprescnta tives from the 3d District, and he therefore movtd that Mr. Smith be invited to address the Caucus. Mr. Smith in a brief and lisrxl aouie speech explained to the Caucus that he had no connection with the declination of Air. Butter, and also read his letter in reply to that 'd .ludge White, (which we copy be l w) c a brief statement ot his political views. As to the congressional nomination, he cheerfully committed himself t the nitc dcviei'iii of the Senators ami Representatives Irom the 3d District. Senator Bjrlow made a personal explana tion, stating that there was no bargain about Mr. lUxter's declination and that Mr. Baxter declined from consideration' of his own Mikly. Ur Barlnw cxprettly denied tf.c silegid charges of any consideration be ing paid, or pledges madu, to Mr. Baxter upon his withdrawal as a candidate His (Mr. H.trlow) position was Mich a to cn- able him t. know that all such charge were wholly fal.-e and Without foundatao . .Mr. Burt denounced a circular signed by Asa Kcynoids, E. A Souk and W. 1). TUcr, as containing statements ant roe and Insult ing to himself and every voter in lite dif tric:. The charge againft Judge lloyt, of complicity in any " trade " about Mr. Bax ter's withdrawal and Mr. Smith's nomina tion, be pronounced utterly fslsc. A ballot was then taken with the foltow ingresnlt. Whole number ol votes. 61 Worthington C. Smith, 45 Asa (. AWis, 16. On motion of Senator Biker, ol Orleans Co., KConJed by Henry Burt. Eq., of Swanton, the nomination of Mr. Smith was made uuanimout, and tho Caucus adjourned in good feeling, all satisfied that the good ot the jarty and the credit of the State re quires the hearty and united support or Mr. Smith at the polls. The result must remove all remaining doubt on that point, and should ensutc Mr. Smith's triumphant election on Tuesday. JCUOE WlUTll'g LL'TTCa. Babtos. Oet. 2Sth, 16C0. Hon. WcKTiitsoTOS C. Smitu, Sit : Noticing from the public press that you have been presented as a caadidite fur Congress lrom the 3rd District I thought tt pro per to address you relative to your present and fist political opinions. If this on my part is not considered improper, I trust you will communicate to me, in such a manner as will suit jour convenience, the re quired information. As a republican I desire very much, and above all things, thit tht re publican patty in the 3rd District may unite upon one man as it is well known that as a plurality of the votes elects, a scattering vote is really a vctc for the enemy. The opposition with unerring eye is watchin; every move in oor now comparatively unsettled condition, but there is no danger if we are united, and in this view I wish to be prepared to state your political position to the republicans in my part of the district should 1 1 enquired of, though 1 have no doubts upon the subject myself. , , lisping jou will cheerfully comply with my request I remain very respectfully, Your obedient servant, Elisiia Whitp- ME. SMITH'S EEl'LV. M03.TI-U.1EB, Oct. )th. 1606. Hob. Elisha White, Dkab Sie : Your note of the 26th has come to hand and I hasten to reply. I cheerfully ac cord to yourself and all others the propriety of enquiring in regard to my political opinions. At the present time when so much is at stake in retard to a wise and safe resolution of ques tions affecting ea vitally the peace and unity of the country, it is especially proper that any one who is brought before the people for a high and responsible office should drtlarc himself plainly and unequivocally. The limits cf a letter do net justify a lengthy disiussion of all the important questions now absorbing public atteafon, nor of the causes which have combined to arouse the people to thouzhtful consideration and wise action. win. ii. fir.t Ktartlinir announcement of armed and rebeUious resistance to the power and authority of the government, I felt that the tine had come when every loyal man should take his stand boldly and manfully for his country. and when every form of treason or disloyalty should not only be suppressed and subdued but should receive its just punisbntnt. During the whole progress of the war I gre to the government my earnest and zealous sup port in its grand effort to maintain its dignity and supremacy, and contributed according to my ability to aid and encourage those who went out in defense of their country, and who by their gallant and heroic deeds have won such bright laurels for themselves and imperishable honor aud renown to their native stats.. When the government had asserted its might and its right, had put down all arraid resistance, and settled, as I trutt forever, all right or power of States to secede or rebel.the difficult and com rlicated questions cf restoration and adjustment came suddenly and prominently before the pesple for their consideration and decision. To the unfortunate disagreement or want of harmony between Congress and the President need not specially tcfer. Unfortunate as it may have seemed, it his at least educated us all to clearer and wiser views of the true theory and practical workings of a republican form of gov ernment, and has defined the just forms and re lations of the executive and legislative depstt ments, each to the other. Congress rightly, as I think, claimed and as serted the right to prescribe the modes and im pose the conditions upon which the States lately in rebellion could be safely restored to their practical relations to the Government. To this plan the States that have thus fir spoken have given their emphatic approval and to it, and to all leading measures which are sustained by a majority of Congress, I give my hearty and cordial support, believing that through them can best and soonest be secured restored peace and permanent union, established as they will be ou the sure and lasting foundations of free dom and political equality. Uniting with you in the hope that the Republican party of this District will not allow themselves to be so divided and districted as to lose the position and prestige to which they are justly entitled. I am my dear sir, Very respectfully, Yenr obedient servant. WoKTHlsoTox C. Smith. Tin: position or judck alius. LETTER I ROM JUDGE KELLOGG. SbXATE CUAHBEE, MOXTPELIKB, ) Oct. 29th, 180C. J -Wj i)far .Sir .- In your letter of the 27th incL, ahtch you were pleased to address to me, you inform me that the Hen. Asa Owen Aklis has been put in nomination by a portion of the freemen ef the 3d Congressional District as a candidate for member of Congress, to be supported by the freemen of said District, at the ensuing election; and you therein enquire whether I aiu author ized to withdraw Judge Aldts' name from the contest. and whether, in the eent of his elec tion, he would return and enter uron the duties of the office? In teply to these enquiries I re mark, that I am consttent Judge Aldis has no knowledge of his nomination, or that such nom ination was ever contemplated by his fellow citi zens of the District, and I cettainiy have no authorit) from the Judge, directly or indirectly, to withdraw his nsme from the contest, or to take any action whatever, either in relation to his nomination or the withdrawal of his name from the canvass. As to the remaining ecquiry, of whether the Judge, if elected, would accept the position and enter upon the .liscliaige of its duties, you will readily perceive my ansaer mut I mere matter of t pinion which, perhaps, others could as well determine as m self. .Uy oirn opinion, how ever, is, that should the Judge be fairly and beoorahly elected, he would ffetl it bis csty and his 4tmiHTt to accept the appointment, and cuter upon the discharge ot his duties. Respectfully, yours, DANIEL KELLOGG. E. A. Soulu, Esq. The public was entitled, if any one c.uld si-cat authoritatively for Jodge Aldis, to some knowledge ot bts position in reference to n nomination, and wc arc glad to rive the above letter to our readers. It cvrres- ponds in the main with one received by us from Jadt: KcJtajMt. senenil wiiIm .; which doses as follows : "If there is to be a division of tbe party, and two repabtoan candidates in the Mi, I ooatd not as his (Judge Aldis') friend and relative, consent to the use of his name, as I coahi hard ly hope for the election of an absent person under such circa matinees. Tours very truly, David. Kellooq " Tbe two letters show that the use of Judge Aldis' name lias been without his knowledge or eonsent : that noeWy is authorised to speak for him in the matter ; and that tbough he might probably corn-cut mat bis name should be tbe point of union, in a cor dis! harmonising of tbe party on one candi date, his ftiends have not been willing that lit should be one of two republican candi dates. Wc arc conscious of no partixan prefer ence between Judge Aldis and Mr. Smith. If he had liad anything approaching a regu lar nomination, and if the use of his name were likely thoroughly to unite the party. Judge Aldis would have no more cheerful supporter than ourselves. Under the cir cumstances of the ease we Iiavc agreed with Judge Kellogg tlmt there was no hope for the election of an absent peivon. Nor have we a particle of doubt that if the case wcie now known to Judge A. ho would utterly decline to be a candidate against Mr. S-aitli. The Republican City Central Committee addressed a note to Hun. liorthwgton C. Smith, on Thursday, cxprin2 their earnest desire lor the union of the ptrty, and, in the belief that an cxpreon of his political views would conduce to that end, requesting httn to addrcrs tho Republicans ol Burlington, on Monday evening. e are sorry that be has been compelled by other engagements to decline compliance with the request. Our citizens would be right glad to hear Mr. Smith, and as we believe, would be most favorably impressed by his ability, frankness, and clear and sound republican ism. The following is bis letter of reply : Sr. Aldass, Nov. 2, 1801. Meurt. C. G. Benedict ami olhert. lleiMican Central Com. of Snrlituton : Gentlemen : Your note of invitation to ad dress the Republicans of Burlington on Monday evening next was rcceiveJ by List mad. The sudden and unexpected manner in which I find mvself before the people as a candidate for representative ftom the 3d Congressional District bis imposed many duties and labors which absorb my time and attention, and will I fear prevent my compliance with your request. Arrangements made for Monday afternoon ami evening prior to the reception of your note, will also interfere with Buch compliance. I have felt an earnest and controlling desire that tbe unfortunate divisions and dissensions of the late contest might be healed and allayed, and the republican party of this district te restored to that harmony which in these times of nation al neril is of paramount importance. To this -.! r w. cn-M ml Iibortd to the extern oi - ua.i. m-a" m abilitv and I cannot but hope and expect 4i,. v. rTuT,i;in!i of vour city, as well as of the whole dU-trict. forgetting personal animosi ties and laying aside personal preferences, wan show not only the unity and power or the tarty but will thus vindicate those principles and measures or which the rrty is the exponent. With sentiments or high regard, believe me your obedient servant, Woetbisctos C. Smiiu. BtmEB Lower.

Kynders has taken the stump for John Morrisscy. cx-pritc fighter and owner of gambling bells. Morrisscy says in his acceptance of the democratic no mination for Congress, that be is one of the humble exponents of his party which is too true Among the distinguished Republicans now stumping New York State arc Gov. Hawlcy cf Connecticut, Gov. Curtm of Pennsylva nia, Gen. Carl Schurz, rx-Vicc President Hamlin, Gen. Ashley of Ohio, Gen. Walter Harriman of New Hampshire, Gen. GarGdd of Ohio, Judge Warniouth of Iiuitiana, Gjlusba A. Grow, cx-Spcakcr of the House, Horace Gnelev nnd Geo. W. Curtis of iN'cw Vork, Sen. Wilson, and many others. The Knoxvillo (Tenn.) ll'aiy in its last issue says that a Tcnncescc Johnsouito bad had a long interview with the President, anJ retorts that the President was disap pointed at the result of the recent election., but he xcmld not ahrnJon hit policy unless Sac Yotk went ayainst him. That if it did, be wocld support the Constitutional Amendment. But if New York sustained iui, he would fight the amendment dating bis term of sciviee.

It really looks as if daylight had dawned at last upon the darkness shlch has so long brooded over the Third District. A meeting of the re publican mtmbets from that District was bell last evening, at nhich it Has apparent from the 6tit that the ruling desitc was, not so much to cure the success cf this or that individual, as lu harmonize the party and give a united and ca rdial support to the candidate of the majority II- n. Worthington C. Smith being present, was called fur, and took the stand. He was evident ly laboring under powerful emotions, but he prttcrved his lelf-poeseisicn, and speke very handsomely. It was evident from the effect his speech had upon the audience, that he was the coming can. lie ucmcu ateoiuteiy mai me ar rancemtnt by which Baiter withdrew in his f .vor lock place with his knowledge cr consent. He dcfiLtd his Jtst and present political status so fully and satisfactorily as to remove all doubts t r suspiciens cf his ccmplete soundness in the l'tublican faith. He tutmitttd it to the deci t it cf the membcts whether he, and, if not he, v ho, should be the candidate cf the republican I -rly, and pledged himself to abide by the deci-i.- u. At tie clcse cf his rematks a ballot was called f. r, and the roll being called the members wctt f. rwaid and deposited their ballots. All the Senators, and nearly all themembers, responded. and tLe result of the ballet was announced to be Smith 45, Aldis 1C It will be seen that Smith had net only a very large majority cf the volts cast, but a clear majority of all the votes that eculd be cast. There are 7G tones in the District, cf which two ate unrepresented and ;x are represented by democrats, leaving C8 i r publican members, to whom add the eleven senators, and there were 73 persona entitled to vote. If all tbe absentees had been opponents if Smith, he would still have a dear majority of eleven. But some ot the absentees authorized their Mends to declare their preference for Smith, making his real strength still greater than the L.llot showed it to be. The result or tne oauoi I belfig declared. Senator Baker, formerly an ar- 1 dcnt Baxter man and subsequently of Aldis proclivities, moved to make the nomination unanimous; Henry M. Burt, Esq , of Swanton, the head and front cf the M wing of the Irty, seconded the ccminaticn, and it itos car ried aithout a dUsenting vote. Mr. Smith briellii expressed his thanks, aftir which raaoy memCtrs-went forward and gave their congrat ulations, and the caucus aJjcunnd, with a bet' ter state cf feeling than bs prevailed at any other time since the session ccmmtuceJ. The prorosUicn of the Lyndon fnioo to the demo crats to "go in and Uj Wetthiogtou C. Smith out in tbe cold," will j.roUMy M to be carried into entct. In crder to prevent the apprehended stampede of members from the Third District, Sena ter Htndtc of Lamoille yesterday inttoduud a bill, which, under a suspension of the rults, was wAtd by both hcuste in lies than hour, aatbor Inng the clerks of tbe llocw te open a ballot box text lucstUy, and ttreive tbe ballots of such members, and of other voters from the Third t District who may then U here. It is doubtful, however, vthiiher tbr object of the bill will be secured. Tbe intniter sit very un easily open their scats, and uanj of them are gettitg ready to have. A jtiut niolution for an adjonrnrcrnt from Friday afternoon till 1 o'clock next Tuesday afterncon has te-day passed both houses, by almost unanimous votes. In tbe Seiate. this foienoti., a bill to refund to drafted men tbe amount paid by them as commutation, came up for discussicn. Senator Goodhue of Windham County opmel the de bate in opposition to the bill, and took the Sen ate and sprctatots qnile by surprise. He had been one of the silent Senators, and to 3tne sns pecttd him of being a debater, bat he " broke oat, like the Irish rebelHoa, forty thousand strong." and made a clear, sensible, and forci ble s;eck. Senator Stunner of Orleans spoke in favor cf tbe bill, and Senator Ileadee rejoined. Tbe Senate, by a vote of IT to 1 1, rejected the bUL W. Tne City Water Woili. The question of tbe mode of supplying our city with water, has of late been under pro longed discussion before the Board or Alder men, and to a considerable extent before oor citizens in printed ttforta. It has practi cally simmered down to s choice between two rival plans, each recomanrnded by cn ginceis i experience and reputation. One is to force the water tre-sa the Lake. I.y stam pomps, t a reservoir e- msining three million gallant. Tht- other is to force tbe water from the rit tr. by pumps driven hv srvrVr fewer to a "s-"' lr containing irn million gti- Tl.e other derails villi he tb .n lor bith plans. Between the two U Bo .rd ot Aldermen is almost cqsalfy divided The first cost of tbe worts on ' e Luke plan is rt-timated at $147,560. The first cost of the work en the riv. r plan is estimated at $149,100. Tbe friends ol tbe nrer pun presented to tbe Brd TO-ponriblc parties, who a, re ready to contract tor the works at tbe figure nai-cd. The friends of the Lake plan in il Board 'cd (vkitb om. iufcntiotii ogmmt ' proviso mating its adoption c.n tmstrwt on the pnxsuetiun of swtasfaetor evidence that it would cost no more than the estimate, a eircuiastanec chloiUted to et ci'e a d aM whether it is not likely to cost mure than the estimate.

The difltitiwc is $2,800 equal to isx ol 13 to 14 tents on the dollar, on the ,;ra- d list uf the city. Ihcre can be no serious question on tiiat point. The only one left then, is that last.bnt by no means least -of the iptality of the water. This is iu t fleet tl.e prime question. H tbe watir from the river, when rrotcrlv i-ctt'ed in a reservoir, is as good as that of the lake then the liver plan must be tbr best. That is a point winch wc certainly do not feel competent to decide. 1'herc are evideutly two sides to it. Mr. Linsley thinks the Lake water will be much the U', and has carried wim him opjercntly iu this opintun n majority or the Boatd or Aldermen. I ho very competent Water Committee of the Board, alter considerable investigation a-d analysts of the water, reported last July that they were " satisfied that the quality or the Kiver water is as good if not Utter than the Lake water. H this opinion is a correct one, then the long petition of our citisens to the Boatd ol Aldermen, in favor of the Lake plan, be comes quite another thing That petition is based upon tho arsumption that the Lake plan will " atlord the best water," 'awl at less coot" than the other. Tliat may be to. but it is clearly begging the wliole question, and ir the troth should happen to lie that the Rirer will afiord tho best water at the less cost, that petition at once becomes one for the River plan Wc arc very glad that the decision ol eo important a point did not rest with us majority ol the Board or Aldermen, consist ing or Messrs. Applcton. BaIIou, Blodgett and Peck, have decided it in favor or the Lake plan. Xot questioning the sincerity of tactr convictions, wo haTC only to express oar sincere regret that the plan adopted could not have commended itself to the large mechanical talent or Mr. Dodge, the business tact and strong senw of Mr. Barnes the man to whom more than any other is due the prosperity which permits our city to Ihinl about suca an enterprise as this the clear bead of -Mr. Worcce'.cr.and the careful judg ment of Mr. Tafr.

Too Montpclier .Iryus contradicts, with somewhat unnecessary heat, the statement taken by us from Wulton'a Journal, that Mr. S E. Bailey, the new mail agent, "was not the choice or the gratis clique." It avers oa tho contrary that Mr Bailey's jicti 'ion was drawn np by tho alitor or the Aryus and tho appointment urged by T. P.

The New York Tribune thus sums up the facts tt the Baltimore polieo difficulties, which are occupying so large a share or the telegraphic news reports, and of tbe public attention : Ti.e trouble in Baltimore ij not of recent origin. It began with the rtlcMion, and dates as far back as the Spring of 1 61 , when the reb els of Baltimore fired upon a Massaehasetts re giment marching to tbe defense of Washington. A large number of tbe people of Maryland were relids, and Maryland regiment! fought in the ra..ks of Lee and Johnston. Fortunately the geographical position of the State placed it, from tbe nist, under the protection of the Govern ment, and the conrage of its loyal people pre vented it from bong dragged into secession. After the war. m self-prc-tectHHi ami simple jot tee, tbe loyal men of Mar) land amended the State Constitution to prevent returned rebels from voting, and by a strict registry law they hive thus far succeeded in saving the State from the rule if its worst enemies. Since Andrew Johnstn adtpted the policy of placing the whole Scu-h under Ihe rale of the rebel leaders, tbe men who sympathized and aided the rebellion in Marrlmd have made a bold etfart to regain the pr.wer they bad forfeited by treason, and Gov. Sitaoa, elected as n Union man in If-tVt, has done bis best to sustain it Baltimore, the headquarters of all the rebel; north of Richmond was tbe point cf attack. Tbe laws of tbe State, strictly ii, forced by the police commisalobers. enat'cl only Union men to Tote, and at aft the recent rl-.ctions, taclodmg that of Got. S t inn, th ju; .r. l (f known rebels were disfranchised. So '.trig as the pence commissions rs remain in cfBce u was certain that tbe laws would be hon estly a Imiristered. and that the barriers erected by tLe Ivjal c- mtnanity for its protection would .t i e r rt ken uown or rvauea oy ine men wno This .lid not suit Gov. eiwann. whose change of j pel t... compelled him to depend on rebel votes remove the commissioners and replace them with :ot n lea devoted in their Unionism ; for this urpose the charges were preferred which aapo,s? iijxm w hk-h he hiM Tea5rr?$ tie ccmmissicnrrs We have cart-fully examined tbe evidence on the side of the lioverncr. and compared it with that for the defense, and cannot see bow any rtspectai.Y lawyer conid consoentioasly say that tbe cbarcis had been proved. The witnesses for the pr- secutioo, of whom CO were summoned, testified that only radical judges cf elect iocs were appointed in certain wards ; that in some rs tucre were no boxes used to deposit re jected votes to preserve them for future adjadi- caliji. ; that legal votes were reiased ; that tne police lorcc was used to intimidate voters by vi olence : that Commissioner Wood had been seen drunk id the streets in sacrt, that tbe recent eject i Has illegally and unjustly conducted. Every part.cle ol this testimony so tar as tne ohargn- against the commissioners are sustained by it has been rtbattcd by the evidence Car the defense. It is true, no doubt, that there were abases and irregularities at the polls, for these arc inevitable in all large cities, bat it has net been shown that in a single instance tbe commis sioners were responsible. They, on the contra ry, appear to have done all in their power to H-curc a mu and Lair and legal vote, without respect to party interests ; the good character of the jauges ot clectioas was rally proven, ana their " radicalism "' seems to mean that they were Union men and not rebel sympathizers ; the ballot-h xes were proven to be those always in use, and used in the election of Governor Swan in 1P64 ; in several cases tbe use if re jected boxes was proved when witnesses for the prosecution hail sworn they saw none ; me res pectability of tbe speeisl police was established ; tbe charge of drunkenness against Commis;iontr Wool fell to the ground, and is net even cited in the Governor's decision ; while in many cases the witnesses for the prosecution were proved to be men of immoral character, graduates of the prison, or candidates for its honors. The credi bility of the main points of tbe testimony in sup port of the charges is tiestrojett ty the ovtr- wbelming evidence m behalf ct tbe acenseu. Bat Guv. gKsn. from tbe brst. it is apparent. had made np his mind that the commissioners should be removed, and no evidence in their favor could have changed him. His own words have made it plain that the trial over which he presided was a farce and a mockery that these men were not sammoned to Annapolis to be tried, but to be condemned. The chances ha I to be made before next lues- day and tbT have been made. Tbe new com missioners may be trusted to tike care of the interests ot the "fourteen thousand disfranchised people of Baltimore," next Tuesday, and the l l.utxj irwmis oi the ueoeiiion mav oc trusieu to take care of tbe Governor, New Comai is lon ers, new Judges of Elections, a new police, who will have control of the polls,and Ualtimore under their rule will send twenty-one members to the Lecislature puMaeu to vote lor inomasswann as United States Senator from Maryland. This is the mcaniac of the removal of tbe commission ers to wrest ihe State from the Union men who saved it ftcm rebellion, and make the Legisla ture the tool of one man s political ambition. The relations of Secretary St. niton aniS the l'rcsldent. Waiogton-, D. C. Oct. 29, lfeCC. There bate been many rumors afloat dur ing tlie past two weeks relative to a rupture between the President and Secretary Stan ton, and the probable retirement of the latter ; and from these clouds of smote some thing reliable and definite can now be reach ed. The reports that the difficulty arose on account ol the Secretary's filling the va cancies in the army without consulting Mr. Johnson, nnd assigning them to duty, arc substantially correct. But the fact cannot be sustained that these apjointmcnts were made from the political friends or the per sonal friends of Mr. Stanton, who were inclin ed to " radical " proclivities, to the exclu sion of those or different political opinions. As far as I have ascertained, the selection oi officers has been governed almost entirely by their field records those most distinguished by gallantry and good conduct receiving the appointments. It is true, no donbt, that the Secretary would commission a '-radical" sooner than a copperhead, were their field record the same. He has received too macb abuse, has been too often slandered and vil lificd liy this estimable clas of citizens, to look upon them with great favor. And the rorgiving characteristics or bis nature arc not at all prominent quite different in fact from these of bis worthy superior. I do not think that the rupture arose by reason of the political antecedents or tho ap pointees altogether ; but because Mr. Stan ton presumed to make them without sub mitting them to Mr. Johnson for approval. It is quite true that tbe more important sc- lections for the higher positions in the new resimcnts aro naw being thoroughly rcvi.-cd ' by the President, assisted by Generals Grant j and Sherman ; snd tne fact that Mr. Shcr- j man ii called to these consultations in the face of bis well-known unfriendliness to Se crctary Stanton, is significant. tr -l.,, ! . f . , to assume the right to make these nrroint- nients. That very independence ol action, 'used as it was in this case upon his excel lent juugemcm an.i knowledge ot ttia scr- vices of the applicants, and his promptness .1.. 1; . -. a . in the dispatch of business, arc two great 'qualities which secured lor him the strong regard or President Lincoln, and which, added to his general ability as a war minis ter, ms maintained tur Ihui the place as tbe head of the War Office sgainst the well known wishes of Mr. Johnson. He i one whose bold and active mind will assume res ponsibility. So bold, so eomprehenivc, so fertile in resources and expedients, he is one to depend upon and believe m hiuiscll, and mould others to his will. His assistants and those around him are never his advisers, but his clerks. War nutters arc wholly controlled by himself, and from the Presi dent alone dots bo receive suggestions. A decided back of courtesy is attributed to him; Gen Xbonias in addressing a letter to Gen. Grant asking instructions in a case ot con flict between the military and civil authori ties, was answered by the Secretary, who did not even consult Gran:. When the Gen eral read the correspondence for the first time in the morning papers, it is said he smoked harder than usual, but nothing che testified to his appreciation of the slight. Now the breacn is wider titan ever be tween the two, tbe most formal relations ex isting between tbera. Stanton waJ the man for war tim-s. History will do bim credit. Mr. Lincoln, rather inclined to hesitate, knew how to value him, who in times ot great emergency was more great than ever. It would not be at all surprising it- he re signed at any time, although in view ot bis value in tbe War Office, be may be retained some time longer. When that retir. ne nt does come, it will be heralded by congratu latory shoots from all tbe friends of Ireedoui and tbe good eanee, and will proclaim tbe end o, a cctvice as brilliant, as loval. nnd as Do Me a? man can boast of.

Yet she bad a strength of character far beyond what any casual observer would detect, aad was rpial to any emergency, no matter how trying arid ter rible it might be. Tlie fearless ecu rage with which she threw herself between her filher's breast and tbe uplifted knife of the assassin Payne, and the tenacity with which she clung to his arm, and waght to divert his deadly aim. attest this trait in ber chsracter. I'jjne after ward said that if be could have made up his mind to strike her out of his way he could have accomplished his purpose upon tbe Secretary, but that her face, between his weapon awl her father, disarmed him ; be hail not tbe heart to take ber life also. Mr. Seward's attachment to ber was always most warm ami devoted. While travelling in Europe he never retired at night without writing to her fall descriptions of alt be bail seen antl beard during the day ; she was always in his thoughts waen absent and always closely watchful ot his comfort and happiness at home. That home, already so shadowed with gloom, will be darker than ever, now.

Special order Joint resolution, introduced by Mr. Brigham of Hjdepvrk, relating to the States lately in rebellion, and the adoption of the constitutional amendment, was taken np. Mr. Ross of St, Johcsbury was opposed to the resolution, as holding out the adoption of the constit ttional amendment as an inducement for those states lately in rebellion to get into Con gress again. He wished those States to adopt the amendment to the constitution because it was right and just. Mr. Brigham of Hydrpark wished some measure adopted whereby the bitterness between tbe north and south would be allayed, and the adoption of such a proposition as made in thw resolution he believed would accomplish it It hurt his own feelings to Tote against the articles of amendment as presented; some ot them were just and such as he wonld approve, but others he could not approve, and he was constrained to vote agaicst them as a whole. He would never vote to repudiate the public debt, which was one of those articles.but when coupled with other articles which he thought objectionable he was oMiged to vote against them, as he did. He hoped the house would adopt these resolutions. Mr. Miner cf Manchester offered an amend ment, substituting a new resolution as follows : " TW, te-lierear, a portion of the States in this republic, without cause or provocation, se ceded from the union, and for four years waged a cruel and relentless war upon the government, and sought every means in their power to over throw and destroy it, committing more wrongs upon humanity than were ever before committed by any civilized nation, refusing to submit to the laws till they were fully conquered and sub dued by the force of arms; therefore, He to! red by the Senate and Home of Rtp rtuntalices. That before those States are ad mitted to representation in Congress "they should not only be repentant, but should show fruits meet fcr repentance." They should wil lingly adopt the amendment to the constitution proposed by congress on the 13th day of June list; they should elect men who are now. and alitajs have been, true and loyal to the general government, and who should come representing a loyal constituency. When they do this, members lrom the rebel States should be ad mitted to seats in Congress." Mr Brigham thought that Mr Miner hardly meant to say what the preamble of his resolu tion said, that those States seceded. He thought that the popular sentiment was that they did net scejde, although they tried to do so. Mr .Miner said he did mean to say just what the preamble said. He believed those States .lid secede, ana lur lour jean n-uuuiori a go, etniuent of their own, and tried their best to stay seceded, and that they should not be al lowed to return without showing some repent ance for their misdeeds.
