Georgia.
The Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore Sun writes, Jan. 13, as follows
"The reports that reach this mtv r
state of affairs in Georgia, cause serious
apprehension in the minds of Republican
members of Congress, who are beginning
v wuviuua mav meir tasi attempt at re
construction was a worse failure than they
Delieved the first attempt to be. This is
not . Decause of any act of the so called
jvcueis oi me otate, Dut because they re
alise that Gov. Bullock
to the emereoncv. or that h
everything for his own personal interest
uu grauuizcuienc, ana notuing tor tbe
need of the State and the whole people
thereof.
"A gentleman who has been one of tbe
musk earnest auvocates ot an extreme
remedy in the G
day that if reports from that seotion were
to be believed, (and be did not seem to
doubt them,) the difficulties in some of the
counties was as niucb the result of Bul
lock's arbitrary and vindicative conduct
as of any disposition upon the part of the
people to resist the laws of the United
States. In the debate in the Senate on
Friday Mr. Ferry alluded to Bullock as
exercising imperial power in his State, and
intimated his contempt for Bullook's
course. Other gentlemen, and they too
not all Conservative Republicans, think
just as 8enator Ferry does. Even now
members are talking of calling him to a
strict i account for his action, and by con
gressional enactment stripping him of all
power, and vesting complete authority in
General Terry."
Israelite Immigration.
It is stated by a New York contempo
rary that a large immigration of Israelites
nif short I v tta 1LJ t r. i

that Mvarml hnlMl .
- uuuuiou lamiiies are to be
ent to New York from Western Russia,
"o longer to be enjoy
d. It is also sUted that tbe sub-commit-tees
a the Russo-Prussian frontiers will
soon organise a general fund for the ex
portation of Israelites to this country.
Nearly all these immigrants will be poor,
but they will here find perfect freedomto
do and think as they please.
Congressional Interference in Ten
nessee. - -
The St. Louis Republican says : "The
new bill ia Congress to inaugurate Con
gressional interference in tho State of Ten
nessee starts from a principal diametrical
ly opposed to the bills of Mr. Drake atd
Mr. Trumbull, by which the jurisdiction
of the United States courts is to be cur
tailed in regard to the question of the
constitutionality of Congressional acts.
The House bill submits tho acts of the
various Legislatures to a decision of the
United States Courts in such cases as the
Senato bills attempt to exolude from judi
cial action. If a State law is passed by
the votes of persons under political disa-
utuuen, lue united states courts are to
be permitted to declare such law null and
void, whilst a congressioual act may be
passed in the most flagrant contradiction
oftheFoderal constitution, and yet the
Federal courts shall have no right to pro
nounce the unconstitutionality of such an
act. The curtailment of jurisdiction in
one ease is as favorable to Radical legis
lation as the extension of jurisdiction in
the other. This is tbe motive of both biHs.
Both are introduced for the express pur
pose of preserving partisan legislation
from scrutiny by tho Federal courts. The
IIouso Ull, however, presents a feature
which is especially singular. It presup
poses the existence of some doubts as to
the validity of the Fourteenth Amend
ment in the mind of the representative
who introduced it. Supposing he bad no
such doubts, the whole bill is unnecessa
ry. An act passed by any Legislature, in
contradiction to its provisions, is unconsti
tutional, and it needs no special law by
which the courts may bo authorized to re
gard it as such. If his doubts, on the
other hand, are well grounded, what does
all the subsequent legislation, based upon
au invalid amendment, amount to, if on a
f'Jture occasion there might be a majority
of representatives, in whose minds the
same doubts exist as made a Radical
member frame a bill to palliate the orig
inal deficiency of the amendment 1 In this
manner Congressional iuterfeieuce in tho
internal affairs of Tennesson can snamAlv
be inaugurated. They must send an army
into Tcni essee. Nothing will do short of
that."
