AT SEA.—Parties are more at sea
to-day on the reconstruction question
than ever. The fact that leading Dem
ocratic journals and Democratic speak
ers are now advocating negro suffrage
has somewhat confused the prOgramme
of the Radical Republicans. Indeed we
would not be surprised to see the Dem
ocratic leaders everywhere falling into
line - with the most extreme men of the
extremists of the Republican party, so
anxious and determined are they to
break the charm that appears to give
the Republicans a hold upon the ma
jority of voters. If the voters of both
parties who are opposed to Degrees
voting and holding office resist the dic
tation of their leaders and refuse to
follow them, then there may be a third
and strong party organized from both
to vote down the leaders if the negro
question should be submitted to a vote
in the States. But the leaders now
have the control of Congress, and will
bold it for two years, and the people
can do no better than wait for some
thing further to "turn up."
. ADVANCED .RADICALISM.-A Conven
tion of tlie advance guard of Radical
ism composed, of then (white and black)
and women was held in Philadelphia
last week. Mr. Robert Purvis, an
American citizen of African descent,
presided. Wendell Phillips and others
of his school made speeches. The
President, Gen. Grant and Congress
were handled roughly: Mr. Purvis
was nominated for United States Sen
ator, and one of the Speakers, Mr. Pow
ell, ventured to express the belief that
Thaddeus Stevens, Wm. D. Kelley and
Gov. Curtin will all endorse his claims
to the extent of withdrawing their
own aspirations for that distinguished
position. Wo don't believe they will
—but we may be mistaken, as stran
ger things in politics are happening
every day. Even the Democratic lead
ers may have advanced that far by
the first of January. They have made
heaVY strides in that direction lately.
A Woman's Rights Convention was
held in Albany, New York last week.
Lucy Stone Blackwell presided. She
urged the advocates of equal rights
to make common cause with the
blacks. Mrs. Stanton, Fred. Douglass,
Parker Pillsbury and others were pre
sent, and took part in the proceed
ings. Resolutions were adopted,strong•
ly in favor of giving the right of suf
frage to all, without regard to sex or
color, and recommending the election
of women as delegates to the approach
ing Constitutional Convention in that
PRESTO CUANGE.—Tho threats made
during the late political contest that
as soon as Congress would reassemble
the President would be impeached, are
seldom heard of now except from the lips
of Phillips, Gen. Butler and one or two
very bitter extremists. The more ra
tional of the leaders now think a more
moderate dealing with the President
advisable. Compromise between Con
gress and the President appears to be
the order of the d:v.
-Tun Poon NEGRO.—In the struggle
of parties to use the poor negro for sel
fish purposes, his condition is gradually
getting worse. From the South we
have daily reports of their sufferings—
starvation. From the Northern cities
where large numbers have been thrown
together, they are in little better con
dition. They will soon be compelled
to exclaim, "save us from our friends."
Horace Greeley, editor of the N. Y.
Tribune is a prominent candidate for
U. S. Senator. The Legislature of that
State is Republican and it is generally
believed Mr. Greeley will be elected:
He is in favor of Universal Amnesty
and universal suffrage, and opposed to
to banging Jeff. Davi.
AFFAIRS IN MEXICO.-A letter from
the Rio Grande, of a recent date, says:
"Events of no little importance aro
evidently transpiring, and no man can
tell what a day may bring forth.
Sherman coming to this quarter is sig
nificant in the highest degree. I am
satisfied that the Liberal party can
never depose Maxiruilan without assis
tance from some friendly power. My
information from the interior of Mexi
co, from private source, entirely truth
ful, is to the effect that very few of the
French troops are gone home, the ma
jority of them having already enlisted
for three years.in the service of Maxi
milian, under flattering promises made
by the Emperor."
the Rouse of Representatives of
Tennessee on the 19th the bill provi
ding for impartial suffrage and univer
sal amnesty was tabled by a vote of
39 to 29. The East Tennesseeans vo
ted almost solid against it, while a ma
jority of the conservatives favored the
measure. The bill wns introduced by
Mr. Johnson's Opinion—His Difference
with Congress---Au Authorized State
Suffrage should he conferred by the
States, that right being guaranteed to
each State by the Constitution. An
drew. Johnson is favor of qualified suf
frage in Tennessee as a citizen .pf that
State, lie authotized us, in behalf of
the Chief Executive of the nation, to
urge qualified suffrage for threa class
es of colored men of this District, in
April last, and at his suggestion we
renewed the proposition again in July,
only about ono week before Congress
adjourned. We took special pains to
notify several radical Senators and
Iterresentatives who aro anxious in
quirers on tho subject, that the Presi
dent was in favor of the plan propos
ed in . the Republican. The radicals
wore afraid to touch the questiOn, and
went home to their several States and
blackguarded the President,, and de
clared that be was opposed to extend
ing the right of suffrage to . the black
Andrew Johnson is in favor of more
for the black man in Tennessee, as a
citizen of that State; he suggested to
Governor Sharkey, of Mississippi,more
for the colored men of that State, and
requested and authorized us to urge
upon Congress, at the last session,more
for the colored in9 . n of this District than
Charles Sumner, or Henry Wilson, or
any other Congressman of Massachu
setts over urged for the colored men
of their State.
No colored man fought in the Union
army, or who owns property, no mat
ter how much, can vote in Massachu
setts unless ho can read and write.
President Johnson goes beyond that.
He is in favor of granting suffrage to
all colored men, wherever the Consti
tution gives him the power to do it,
who can read and write, or who serv
ed honorably in the Union army, who
owns property to the extent of two
hundred and fifty dollars and upward.
The only difference between• the
President and Congress is, that the
former believes that, under the Consti
tution, each State has the right to set
tle the question of suffrage for itself.
Congress assumes the right to impose
it upon the States, Constitution or no
CODS ti tu Lion.— Trizsltington Republican,
I`The Philadelphia Telegraph, of
last week, ventures the following opin
ion in regard to the compromise of giv
ing universal suffrage for universal am
nesty, now being talked of, in contra
distinction to the Constitutional amend-
"The Constitutional amendment,
while it con templates universal suffrage,
does not demand it. Again and again
did our orators and writers asure the
people that it was not the question be
fore them. And now, to have it thrust
upon us, with the extremely objection
able appendage of general amnesty,
and without any guarantees for the
payment of the national debt, is a com
promise which to us is anything but
desirable. The question of suffrage is
merely a question of time. It is bound
ed upon the immutable basis of jus
tice, and must eventually be achieved.
We doubt the pi opriety of such an ex
tension to an uneducated and a servile
race, without any preparation, so that
even if the "compromise" was to be
made in good faith, we would rather
hold fast to the plan as secured by the
Tim Pittsburgh Commercial has the
following on the saran subject :
Wo do not, us wo have said, go into
the discussion of the proposed ex
change itself. Wo abstain, not because
of any difficulty or embarrassment ap
prehended in showing that then: is no
logical, visible or real propriety in con
necting amnesty and suffrage, or in
offsetting the ono with the other, in
the way proposed; but, because we
have no evidence of the proposition
being the suggestion or wish of the
loyal people as represented in tho Re
publican party. On the contrary, it
would imply the abandonment of their
platform immediately after the elec
tion, in which the people formally and
enthusiastically indorsed it; and it
would be an absurd Admission of the
boasted deadlock, put upon the pro
cess of Amendment by the mere clam
or of rebels and Democrats, while the
Amendment has not been acted on by
a half dozen States.
The Feeling in Business Ciroles.
From all quarters we learn that an
uncomfortable feeling continues to pre
vail in business circles, growing out of
a vague apprehension of coming finan
cial trouble—an approhension•which is
encouraged by certain cliques and COM
binutions,that are supposed to find their
account in a panic that will suddenly
bring down prices and precipitate a
revulsion. In Now York this feeling
is most notideable among the dry
goods dealers and the bankers, who
are anxious to raise the rate of inter
est; but it exists only among the great
body of the merchants.
In Now York lust week there was a
heavy depreciation, not only in the
prices of cotton, raw and manufactur
ed, but also in provisions, naval stores,
metals, wool, tallow and most other
descriptions of merchandise. Some
houses are known to have lost, and to
be yet losing heavily, while many are
of the opinion that we have not touch
ed bottom yet. That is only the "bear"
view of the case, however. The "bulls,"
on the contrary, attribute the decline
to ordinary causes, think it portends
nothing serious, and arc certain it, will
speedily be followed by a movement
in other directions.—Pittsburgh Coin.

NEWS FROM WASHINGTON.
General Logan deSires a denial of the
statement published in a New York
paper that he is in favor of impeaching
the President. He hopes the Congress
will make no attempt in that direction.
Parties who have conversed with
Secretary Seward within a few days,
state that he declared that the policy
of granting universal amnesty. to be
followed by the adoption of universal
suffrage, is destined to be the basis
upon which restoration will be finally
completed. lie agrees, however, with
the President, that it belongs exclu
sively to the States to regulate the
question of suffrage.
The persistent, reiteration in sensa
tion telegrams to the New Yo-k Her
ald, that there are twenty thousand
troops in and about Washington, is
authoritatively denied by the War De
partment,. The whole number will not
reach twenty-five hundred, and they
have been stationed here on recruiting
and other service, for the past six
A. bill has been prepared and will be
introduced during the first week of the
session, repealing the act of July 17th,

to grant full or conditional pardons to

this law is repealed, the Executive will
be limited to the constitutional prerog

present, a mass meeting with address
es, &c., by a number of distinguished
speakers. General Logan will deliver
the welcome oration, and a banquet
will be given in the evening, at which
the Radical Congressmen will be guests.
The following publication is made,
apparently by authority, in the Na
tional Republican of this morning :
"The President is necessarily enga
ged upon important public matters,
preparatory to the early assembling of
Congress, and will have no time
after the meeting of that body to give
the slightest attention to applicants
for office... All such are referred to
heads of the different departments.
Office-seekers and their friends =-

It is understood that the Secretary
of the Treasury will devote considera
ble attention in his forthcoming report
to the question of resumption of specie
payments. He will undoubtedly ask
for further power to fund the floating
and non-interest bearing obligations of
the Government, and will likewise urge
a more concentrated system of redemp
tion of national bank notes as a neces
sary preliminary to a resumption of
specie payments. Mr. McCulloch
thinks, with proper legislation, he may
return to a specie standard within
eighteen months. On the other hand,
it is known to be the opinion of many
leading bankers in the country that
with ono hundred millions of gold in
the Treasury specie payments may be
resumed within ninety days. And
they argue that the entire secuirty
and great diversity of the circulation of
the National Bank notes is one of the
most potent elements to aid a resump
tion, and that the system of redemp
tion should not, therefore, be more
stringent than it now is, but, on the
contrary, if any change be made, that
it should be relaXed. This question
will force itself upon the early atten•
tion of Congress, and will prove ono of
the most important of the session.
THE CASE OF JEFF DAMS.—A Wash
ington dispatch to the Pittsburg Com
mercial, says :
"The President, at the request of
the Mississippi CommisSioners, had a
consultation last night with Chief Jus
tice Chase with reference to the trial of
Jeff Davis. Judge Chase gave the
same reason, so well known, why the
trial had not taken place, and that was
the failure of Congress, in a law reor
ganizing the Judicial districts of the
United States, to make a now allot
ment of the Judges for the new cir
cuits. The President will also allude
to this fact in his annual message."
