It is not the .-lave oligarchs for thev

is not those who cry out so loudly for
the t axation of the honds, because
they invested not, for fear it would in
crease the power of government to ar
rest treason. It is not European hold

The supplementary reconstruction
bill has been vetoed by the President.
Jerry Phe k, the man who delivered
himself in Ihiehanan's tiinn of the
elaborate opinion that Congress by no
constitutional power could coerce a
State, is the framor of the document.
Congress promptly overruled the veto;
thus signally rebuking the old rene
gade and his parasites. The tone of
the message raised the clamor for im
mediate impeachment among the more
nervous of the members, the greater
part received and treated it with that
dignity of manner bespeaking righteous
contempt Cr the man and his views.
It is the last veto rc-liashcd, and as
vMr. Johnson . believes his arguments
unassailable he will no doubt continue
to advance them until the people kick
him ignominiously from his high place.
A Washington dispatch of the 20th
nays: "The President to-day sent to
the Senate the nomination of Horace
Greely, as Minister to Austria. It was
taken up, and would have been con
firmed, had not asingleobjeetion made
by Tipton, of Nebraska, cartied it over
under the rule until the next day of the
sc-ssiou which in this instance is next
Xovemlicr. Mr. Tipton said he
would consent to confirm no mail who
would go hail for Jeff. Davis. Xo ob
jection came from nnv other quarter."

have been in the least obscure. Its'
object was iinouestiouablv understood i
l,v the Padicals who son'oorted it. bv !

the Conservatives who oj.posed it, and j
by the President who vetoed it. That i
object was to protect the rights of
every citizen in the rebel States; to
secure universal suffrage except to
those expressly excluded; to keep the
peace until Congress had accepted the
Constitutions which might be offered
fir its approval, and to do all this by !
the military authority ot the I! in ted

President as establishing a military
despotism showed that there was really
no (jucstion.
Nor would there have Im-cii, except
for the hostility of the Attorney-tJen-eral

Congress. Instead of interpreting it

A writer in the christian Hegister
of Huston, thinks he can explain the
whole affair lv the prevalence of long
sermons; and fie instants the late ex
cellent Dr. Lowell, of Hoston, who al
wavs kept his church "' full by short
and pointed discourses, only fifteen
or twenty minutes long. He says.
"Although the machinery of adver
tising preaching in theatres opera-houcs
circus tents, A-e., may excite a temporary
interest, thconly way to fill thechurch
es permanently is i'or jpreachers who
dilute their sermons into an hour's
length to concentrate their thoughts
into one of twenty minutes. Let them
trvitfor six montha mid their churches
will Ikj filled."
It woulcf be a profitable exercise for
ministers to rewrite their sermons be
fore preacliiim, ' with a determination
to coiurcjra' the whole into U' space of!
luemy . minutes. . UUI ticry muu is

Sir : I see in the New York Jir
ahl of this day an extract from your
paper of the loth inst., in which you
have, in your opposition to certain
letters written by gentlemen of the
South, thought proper to use very dis-resjK-ctf'ul
language about your superi
ors. From the style in which vou
sneak I judge you to have been one ot j
.nose .ii.scniuic, (liny (logs win. puo-
lished an eight-by-ten sheet during the
war for no earthly purpose but to avoid
conscription, and who, to cover up their
own cowardice, tried to, and in some
instances did, break down some of the
purest and noblest meii in the Confed
eracy. Probably some of Albert Sid
ney Johnson's blood is on your hands,
and you may be one of the hounds that
barked at Joseph E, Johnston, and it
may 1m-, if your paper had strength
enough and was published to the end
of the Confederacy, that many of our
mournful mishaps can be partially
attributed to your meanness. You
should have started earlier, reniaiiied
longer, endured more hardship, braved
more dangers, and surrendered with
more regret than either of the gentle
men you name before you should have
presumed to have written such an arti
cle. I cannot fin- an instant imagine
you have been a soldier, and suppose
you must boa "broken down politician,"
an "old dog," or a "little pup;" and,
therefore, 1 will let you pass until 1
return South, when 1 will inquire into
your antecedents, and it vou are worthy
of notice 1 will teach vou better man

The New York (? publishes a '
sketch of Theodore -Tilton, who has
attained a wide celebrity at nu carlv
age. He is not yet thirty-two. lie is
a native of New York city, and was
educated at the Free Academy or Col
lege. His attention was early directed
to the press. He began leariiingshoi-t
hand in his twelfth year, and reported
for the Trlhrne before hu left the Acad
emy, lie reported the Forrest divorce
case. The case of Mrs. Btirdell Cun
ningham and her bogus baby, lie re
ported and wrote out at a single sitting
to the extent of six and a half col
umns. Since he was a hoy, Tilton
has belonged to Plymouth' Church,
and made himself famous some years
ago by bearding the i ion in his den,
or rather Bccchcr in his pulpit, taking
issue with the pastor on the question of
contributing to the American Hoard of
Missioiis.Tilton holding that the Board
was pro-slavery. Tilton has been for
some years editor of the Jmlfiwudrnt,
and has besides busied himself in writ-

ii.iil deliverinir
lectures and addresses. Further the
(lazfttrmym "Tilton resides in Brook
lyn, near Hcecher's Church, owning n
very coiufortnbleand pleasant house in
Livingston street, which is said to con
tain more and finer engravings, mostly
artists' proofs, than any other residence
in that city. His dwelling and Its
contents cost him til-out $25,000; and
as his salary on the liitlcjumhnl is
$5,000, and his' income from lectures
and other sources considerably more
than that, he may be considered be
yond lupine peril. Mrs. Tilton is a
very plain, pleasant fiierd little lady,
not so young looking as her husband,
and esteeming him as the greatest, man
of the age which is as it should he.
Anna, his sister, is a tall, good looking
girl, just out of boarding school, said
to be posscssi d of very fine talents, and
sharing Mrs. Til ton's' faith as regards '
Theodore which is also as it should
be. They are a very happy, lively,
intellectual family, always fail of joy

another, and very popular socially."
The Hepiiblicun party has become n

"Keccntly there was no organized
Republican partv, in the extended
sense of that term, in Virginia. Now
there is, and it is a powerful and grow

and confidence of Congress, and is in
