IDAHO MATTERS AT WASHINGTON» From a private letter written by an Idahoan in Washington, March 21st, to a gentleman in this city, we are permitted to copy the follow ing portions : Immediately after the rejection of J. M. Murphy for Governor, Seward, Browning and Randall sent in the name of George C. Bates for the place. Bates is an old triend of theirs, and particularly of Seward's. He has also gome old friends among the Senators, and can be confirmed if any man can, probably, but ev erything here is uncertain. Seward holds dis tinctly and positively that Ballard is now out of office—that there is a vacancy, filled at pre sent by the Territorial Secretary. Bates is an able man, and I do not believe the Radicals can manage him. Williams of Oregon insists that there must not be any removals in Idaho, be cause the present Federal appointees have been trying to build up a Radical party and ought to be sustained for that reason. The Senate is a slaughter-house, and the Tenure of Office Act has given the Senators great power, which they use without scruple. Several of them are known to have their price for favors, and also have their regular agents and strikers on the outside. Thus it requires money to work a nomination through. To be successful a can didate has to* pay big and fight hard for him self. A man named Carpenter has been nominated for Judge Cummins' place. He first wanted the Govern<*rship, but finally agreed to take the Judgeship. He may not get that, however. Kelly is here, and says he is ready to answer the charges which Holbrook has preferred against him. Gov. Weller is here practising law aud looks well. He is of opinion that an effort will be made next winter to impeach the President, as it is said the Committee have evidence that Johnson proposed last Spring to disperse Con gress by the bayonet, and that Gen. Grant will be the witness to prove the fact. Gov. Weller, Holbrook, and some others here from Idaho have signed a petition for the appointment of H. D. Van VVvck a$. Revenue Collector, in Geer's place, as there is no show for auy Democrat to be confirmed. Van Wyck is likely to be the man. Kelly's and Hewlett's eases will be attended to in reasonable time. The Departments are too much occupied in more important business while Congress remains in session. It is known that Hewlett grossly misrepresented facts con cerning the oath business of the last Legisla lature, and »Secretary M'Culloeh will pay due attention to the case. Opinions of Freedmen. —We find in a late San Francisco Bulletin a synopsis of the speeches made at the great meeting of freed men held in Richmond District, S. C., March 14th. The meeting was addressed, by special invitation, by Gey. Wade Hampton and two other prominent Southern men, and afterwards by two leading freedmen of education, Bever ly Nash and the Rev. D. Pickett. The ful lowihg is the report of their speeches in sub stance : Beverly Nash replied to the generally ex pressed statement of the white speakers, that they were disfranchised, by stating that the colored people would present such a strong and unanimous petition to Congress that attention would be paid to it—in fact the colored men would not rest till the whites had been enfran chised H** had respect for a man who upheld his principles at the point of the bayonet; whereas skulkers and so-called Union men at the South he could designate as nothing better than traitors. Rev. D. Pickett stated that he wanted it distinctly understood that he was no office seeker. The good of his people was his first consideration. He was opposed to universal suffrage for two reasons—the wnut ot educa tion and property qualification. The first was readily attainable, and the last, by industry and economy, would surely come. Speaking of elections, lie said the question should not he whether a candidate was black or white, but was he honest ?
