(Eljc Courier. ThuradaY. July 12. In06. National Union Convention. We pultlish to-day the call for a Na tional Union Convention, to be held at Philadelphia, Tuesday, August 14th, and call attention thereto as a matter particularly worthy the attention of all iu this Congresaional District, who desire that the lamentable incidents of tho pat four 44 should be followed 44 by measures ef peaceful administra tion, so that uuion, harmony and 44 concord way be encouraged, and in- dustry, commerce, and the arts of ' peace revived and promoted ; and the early : catenation of all the States 44 to the exercise of their constitution 41 al powers iu tho National Oovern 44 mcnt which is indispensably neces- 44 eary to the strength and the defence 44 of tho Republic, and to the main 4 tenancoof the publio credit and who is there with a heart to appreci nto the dire condition of civil w ar, of state iliKSfverrd. l!awlor. iMBlligf. erent. our laud drenched iu fraternal blood," our people ground to the duet with taxes, and burning with section al hate and unimosity, as unnessary as it is unnatural, who would not regard this return to the 44 measures of peace ful administration," as "a consumma tion devoutlv to bo w ishod." Certainly there is lo Democrat w ho will hesitate to endori-o every proposi tion made in the call, and in our State where our party has been ready on all occasions to ignore non-essentials, to merge at any time, its name, its or ganization and tho prostage of an hon orable rvcord, into any movement be lieved to be fcr the common . good, no good reason can be offered against tupportirgr, if it is shown to be for the best, this movement which FffDig to offer the fairest basis for a nation able, fresh, vigorous and enthu- s: gtuc opposition io me emruucuuitriiia of reckless and insane radiralum which at this time, more than at any ptriod of its mad cart er, threatens the dcstiucticn of our government, the ecmi.lt te and ineccm ilulle nlieuation f the people of the different-sections of our common country. Terf-onal and political claims ought not to have a feather's weight in tho all important jolitical ccntctt which is opi reaching. All minor issues aio merced in the one ereat issue of o - peace, union, hatmcny and concord, as opposed to sMiife, intolerance, wrangling, and anarchy, the sure re sult cf the policy which the leaders in the radical interest so bitterly and vindictively urge. The present situation, it seems to us, speaking solely upon our own re sponsibility, is one whoso exigencies demand free and unbiassed considera tion, earnest and untranmie'cd action on tho part of every elector who cher ishes a sincere regard for the safety, honor and welfare of his country. In this view, regarding the National Union movement ns one calculated to condense and simplify tho issues really before the people, to vitalize the gen uine Union sentiment of the nation, and to open the way for a union of the best elements of all parties on tho broad- basis of the Constitution which our fathers established, we can but hail it as an auspicious indication of the coming 41 sober second thought of the people, which is always right," and ote happily calculated iu the pres ent emergency to woik cut the salva tion of our government. As such it has our hearty endorsement, and will henceforth receive our cordial and earnest Bupport. President Johnson and his Policy. To be Edit r of Ibe Day City Journal I Within a few days after the first Veto Message of the President was published, tho following article was prepared, suggested y tho aovprity of the comments of the Detroit Adierli tar and Tribune upon the courso of the President. It is at thi time lacking in freshnoss of interest, but if you deem it worth the spaco it will occupy, it is at your service, ' A. To fit Editor of th Adttrliter and Tribunn In recent comments upon the Veto i juebMigi, ui cue i rrimvut, vuu uae r t the following language : 44 The President must know that but for the Radicals there would not be a Repulican in power in the North. : They elected Mr. Johnson and they elected tho majority in Congrees 44 It the Radicals are expelled from the Republican part there won't he enough left of that organization for a the government?

If Mr. Johnson ndorws the Roso tnd oTice in the Iknorpmunt? milliont of treasure in suppressing: the Imion offered by Heoalor Iiner of sft&a In your issuo of the SOth ult , you nay, " lun real tacts oi recenia events must be put before the people. Tliy must inow just how the matter stands." What are some of tho real facts? The Republican party in 10, at the first election afu-r its organization, cast l,341,tlG4 votes. Had the lew votes cast for Mr. Villmoro been add 'd, thd candidates, who were both Northern men and non-slaveholders, would have been elected. In 16G0, the Jiepttblican party carried a major ity of the e'ectoral vote of the entire Union, and during the first term of its administration of affairs through the must trying ordeal the county has ever passed, gained strength and su premacy. No party; had ever before so thoroughly seemed the confidence of the loyal peoplo of the land. So strong was it that in 1804 it could have nominated and elected whomsoever it pleased. It had not the slightest temptation to seelc favor at the South, for no votes were expec ted from that quarter. It embraced within its ranks thousands of loyal men altogether competent for the highest otticps. But when it came together in con vention to select its standard bet l era, what did it do? It threw overboard that honest specimen of Republican manhood, Hannibal Hamlin. Did tills party ur wlium, mxurUtug tuyoUT view, scven-tightlis of whom are rad icals, select one more radicul than Hamlin? Did its choice full upon an avowed and well tried Republican ? Did it inscribe upon its banner tho name of one who practically endorsed the sentiment of the Declaration of Independence as the equality of all men? Not at all. A small coterie from the east corner of a slave State, who were rather fugitives than dele gates, were allowed to ii lluence the Convention. Taison Urownlow who hus cursed Anti-slavery men fur often er than Secessionists, cluims that he presented the candidate. Whom did he present? One who had a life long identification with the Democratic purty. One who gave the best proof that he believed "the black man hud no rights that the white man need respect" a slaveholder, who re linquished the relation not lrom any avowed conviction that it was incon sistent with republicanism, but through the operation of law constitutional amendments, Stute and Federal and one too, when iu Congress sanctioned that refinement upon despotism, tho A' ugitive Mave Law. in what way nau Anurew Johnson endorsed tho la publican imity? He had, iudeed, expressed himself elo- quently on tho Uoor of the Senate, g"iust disiupting the Government, against the dissolution of the Union, and in opposition to tho doctrine of Secebhsion. But he had uttered no better .sentiments than those of Alex ander 11. Stephens in his address to the Georgia Legislature. hy, then, Uul tho Republican par ty select him for tho second oittc in the Republic? It was with a view to expediency or policy, with the exptc tation of drawing votes lrom the op position. Mr. Johnson reaches tho Presiden cy. He takes the reins of the Gov ernment suddenly and unexpectedly. He is for a while reticent, as to his future course. Ere long he concludes that it is worth an etlort to gain this highest office, directly by the votes of the people. He can only gain it by being the choice of the majority of the States. He hud a right tc presume that by lcGtf, the Southern States would cast a part of the electoral voto. He knows thut the Southern people will be a unit. hat w ill be the sen timent of the North with the pressure of the war taken off? Mr. Seward claims tho paternity of the proposed method of reconstruc tion, what counsel would his experi ence suggest? During his entire Sen atorial career so consistently devoted w as he to progress that he came to bo regarded as the 1 rince of Radicals. He endured with most commendable philosophy for a series of years the taunts of Southern members. He seemed to havo earned a position that would give him almost without com p tition, tho nomination at the hands of the Republican party. But just as the prize was about to bo grasped and tho ordnance were charged to welcome with loud notes, the news of the vote that weuld make him President, the choice fell upon a new man whose po sition, heretofore, had but very re cently, if at all, been defined iu the mind of tho people. And since that event, Mr. Seward has so far lost the odor of radicalism as to be regarded by many Jsecatirs as outside the Re publican party. If therefore, success is the chief ob ject of the President, Mr. Seward could scarcely advise hitu to sustain the Radicals. For so soon as he came up to their standard ho would be re- gurdod us unavailable. j In looking outside of the party for tify prejudice, against a few helpless support is not Mr. Johnson adopting ! people of African descent. Not long the very course the Republican party ' ui'ter one of your wealthiest citizens, pursued when it nominated him for ' and to whom your city is much in the Vice Presidency ? m debted for his public enterprise, might Wue he reviewed the history of the ( have been heard apologizing before a 44 great conflict" in this country, dur- large assemblage, on the Campus ing the past few years would he find Murtius, for having given employment Qn instlIce in which a reputation for ' luuiiuiioiu uiueu u uiun m reac.-iung ; Lrovern:nf, .,lftPP, T 1 livered in Cooper Institute, in Now York, on the SJUth of February, 18154, Gen. Fremont answers this question n the following beautiful passage: nai 10-uay is the position of the ' men who for the past thirty years, I nave worked to bring our practice in- I to conformity with the principles of I pluces where their proved fidelity would guarantee the direct execution of what in lu.il u v tlia moi'ltr nnnni. i Itnous will of the peoplo ? Certainly not yet. So fur the virtue of Reform- ers is its own reward." Mr. JoKnson could not have forgot , 1 ten how effectually squelched was Gen. ' ,Fremont, by tho preceding adminii to ex- tration, for being so radical as to issue a iiroclamation of freedom. Y-U are irv tlm hnrtif. Mi T.il ifor r bullion. But can you show that the j North w as not varticrj t criminii f Cun yi u prove that a wngle hand would ever have been raided if the North h.'id been united in fealty to free in stitutions ? Upon the outbreak of so Ctssien who, coming from the South, received the most honor among the n asses of tho North, the slaveholder, er or the emancipationist ? Did not the former receive obeiBauce and tho hitter abuse? Can you point (o a single instance in w hich a man from the South w ho had taken the position cf an honest and consistent opponent cf slavery, and mado his home in the North, who had any availability for oilicb even iu the most remotest ex tremities of the North ? You may not have forgotten the case of one who like Mr. Johnson was a slaveholder, but reaching the conviction "that slavery as it then ex isted was opposed to ti'O very cssenco of our government, and that by prolonging- it, they, were lowering down tho fundamental principles of our happy institutions," set at liberty all over whom ho had any control, and ivas under the necessity of seeking a home in the north. Thirty years ago, aud long before Mr. Seward did so in the Senate, he announced the doctrine of the 4,irrcprc6sible conflict," when ho said "freedom or slavery. nn or tho other, must in the end gain the entire ascendency." lie was not a fanatic, but mild and considerate. He was no bigot, but liberal and en lightened, and by the admission of even his opponents, was possessed in an eminent degree, of the charartcr i sties of a scholar, a gentleman and a. Christian. Was he welcomed at the North ? ( nly indeed by a despised few. When ho usked for the peuceublo exercise of the constitutional right of a free dis cussion through the press, he was n. et with a detei mined resistence, and cwuld only exercise it in the face of an unrestrained and lawless mob. He was of necessity compelled to be the champion of free speech in confessed ly free States. The Beutimcnt of tho North as ef fectually disfranchised him from all participaney in governmental matters ns though ho had worn a skin as black as a Louisiana slave. And yet with such examples of Northern treatment you expect South erners jiuteii mergt-d from the durk nt'bH of slavery to attain at one bound the full growth cf a Massachusetts abolitionist. But you mny say that such refTer ences are remote. The times have changed. Not materially. There is among the masses the rame hatred for the enslaved raco '.hat there ever was. Thero was iudeed a most re markable revolution in publio senti ment in regard to making soldiers of negroes. But it was not a change iu opinion as to the manhood of tho ne gro, but was a result effected by tho argument of selfishness that the loss of neg:oes would cause no greater grief thsm that of the loss of brothers and sons. The rebels wcro nearly liriiiirrlit tft cnni .Aiirliicim I C .r-n 1 tic cTuso of the war. You wou d doubtless cite Michigan as one of the States in which 44 if the Radicals weio expelled from the Re publican party thero would not be enough lelt in thut organization for a small tea gathering. lheRepubli cans have, indeed, carried the elec tions ever since the Whigs went over to the Liberty party. And until sure of their jiohition, they did nominate occasionally, fur otlice some one repre senting the earlier anti-slavery move nieut by way of propitiating what they were pleased to call awing of tho part'. But the lust fetato Convention showed what any closo observer might long before have understood, that the conservative wing of the party was far more potential than the radical. You expect President Johnson to sustain tho proposed measure of uni versa! suffrage, but Michigan has not a member in Congress, who would not have been defeated at the last election the tune at which President John sn was made Vice President if he had gone before the people, on the af firmative of that issue. Radical as Michigan may be, her Legislature ha snot ventured to remove the disabilities of tho black man. The inspectors of elections do not recog nize hint at all. You publish accounts of outrages upon freedmeu as proof of the unfit ness of Southern people to treat them properly, without special legislation. . But if us many were imported among us at the North, can you give any cer tainty of assurance, that tho outrages would be fewer or less heinous? Turn to the filo9 of your own taper of only j S f'W mouths gone by, aud peruse the I indiscriminate destruction of life and ' property that occurred in your w ell I ordered city. The innocent wero made j to suffer in a degree not surpassed by tho inquisition, and property of your host citizens devastated, merely to gra to men of color, upon his vessels and in ms warehouses. 1 allude to such manifestations of sen timent to show that prejudice against color is not confined to the South. And it is not imposHible that if the black man was equal before tho law in ti he North there would bo noed of special legislation horo, as well as at the Smth.

Hetofveii That Senators and Repre sentatives from either of the States recently in insurrection shall be ad mitted to Congress when it shall sat isfactorily appear that such State has, in ficcordanco with the advice of tho President of the United States, passed laws nullifying its Ordinance of Se cession) ratifying the amendment of the Constitution of the United States abolishing slavery; repudiating all rebel debts; recognizing the debts of the United States, and extending the elective franchise to all the male per rons of color residing iu said State over twenty-one years of age, who can read the Constitution of the United States in the English language and write their names, and also to all male persons of color of like age and residence who own real estate valued at not less than 1250 and pay tax thereon; provided, that such Senators and Representatives shall posses all the qualifications required by the Con sttution and of the United States. Mr. Lane stated that the above con tained the terms upon which Mr. Johnson was willing to reconstruct tho Southern States. If this bo so, how many radicals should this policy drive out of the Republican party? It w 111 be a great achiement to have accomplished so much in so short a space, as the prac tical adoption of those conditions. AMERICUS. A Half Century Aeo. Wonderful indeed are the changes and vicissitudes of half a century in national affairs. We have just round ed the cycle, with ono year to sparo, since the ever memorable days of Wa terloo, occurring on tho lCth 17th and lth of Juno, ll?15. Then the finish ing blow was struck to the empire of the First Napoleon. Then immediate ly followed the Congress of the Holy All ance, at Vienna, and the treaties of 1815. Then all Europe wan march ing on Paris, and entering into stipu lations that no representative or heir of rsapoleon lJona parte 6houId ever be allowed to occupy the throno of Frai;ce. Snould such an attempt bo made, the Continont should tremble with the trend of armed men, and 1,500,000 soldiers crush out Bona itartism, and quickly eradicate it in France. Worn out and exhausted with the protracted warfare of twenty years, during which its standards had been carried to Ej.ypt and Moscow, to tho Baltic and to the Black Sea, de pleted by eonscriptl ns of the blood of all that was youthful and vigorous, sad in heart, and sore in feeling, with its great Emperor a fugitive captive, France. reluctantly surrendered to the legions of Europe. The dynasty that had been driven beyond her borders by the w ill of tho people, was impos ed upon them again, by a decree that they w ero unable to resist. The na tional spirit was humiliated, and its prido was broken', only occasionally flashing out as it remembered past glory and renown. anus the curtain dropped upon France and uiion Europo lifty. years ago. The lmnd of Time has lifted it, and wo behold a different sceno. The stage and tho theater of action are tho samo. Tho audience and lookers on are once more tho world. The blight nnd beautiful days of early summer have come, bringing with them the fifty-first Waterloo anniversary. Now, as then, the Continent is astir. Now, as then, it resounds with the note of military preparation, and is enlivened with martial music. The natious are rushing to the fray with headlong speed nnd passion. Another great act of tho world's drama is on the eve of commencement. But how different the actors ! Where nro the great cen tral figures of 1815 Alexander, Wellington, Blucher, Castlereagh, Metteruich and Talleyrand? They have long since vanished into the grave along with their great antago nist. Where is the Bourbon monar chy in Fiance, that it cost two millions of lives and counties millions of trea sure to establish ? It has disappeared from the political boards like a house of curds. Before tho awakened in dignation of the French people it ha fled away like the buseless'fubrio of a dream. In its placo stands the lineal head and representative of the Napo leon family. St. Helena has given up its dead it has been transported to Paris. A now Empire has arisen, like a phoenix, on the banks of the Seane. Bold, audacious and threatening, it has roared its crest in Europe. Where now are the millions of men that were to spring out of the ground to meet any eucn apparition, n it should ap pear r here are tho clauses of the memorable treaties of 1815, to which were then affixed the signatures of tho ruling houses of tho world ? The clans are, indeed, gathering, but not to execute those treaties. They are rushing to tear them up. Tho Holy Alliance, that greatest exhibi tion of power the world has ever seen, is broken and dissolved. Two of its main pillars Austria and Prussia have drawn the deadly daggors of con flict for a clone collision. The other great levers of support England and Kussia calmly,, but not mdifferntly, behold tho scene. Tho stage of war is not as it was hlty years ago. iu Bel gium and France, but in Get many, lor that alliance which once fed its ambition on the exterior world, is now about tearing its own interior vitals. What a different r ranee in spirit and in action, is that which we see to-day. contrasted with that of half a century ago? Its head flung down tho guage of defiunco to Europe when he as sumed the Imperial Crown. It has not been picked up. He goes further and avers his detostation of the wholo treaties of 1815, which have now be come unacceptable tcT the parties that draughted them.
