—The cholera has broke out in Leipsic,

The country awaits with unusual anx
iety, the assembling of Congress, and the
delivering of President JOHNSON'S message.
No document of the kind lias ever been
looked for with so much interest, nor
ever read with so much eagerness as will
be the forthcoming message of the Presi
dent. This is occasioned by the peculiar
circumstances under which President JOHN
SON assumed the helm of State, by the stu
pendous and important results which have
followed from our military operatums, cul
minating in the sudden overthrow of the
rebellion, and by the difficult task which is
now being tried, of reorganizing and recon
structing the States lately in Rebellion.
It is idle to attempt to conceal the fact,
that the loyal people of the country have
experienced some degree ot disappointment
and dissatisfaction at the action of the Na
tional Administration in the pardon of
rebels, and in the general management of
the rebel States. A great fear has taken
hold of the public mind that the lessons of
the past were to be ignored, that the blood
and treasure of the couutry had been spent
in vain, and that Slavery was to be allow
ed once more to regain its former standing
and prestige. It was natural that a people
who had undergone such unexampled pri
vations, as those endured during the past
four years, should be sensitive of the final
settlement of our National affairs, and jeal
ous lest the lives and money offered upon
the shrine of tin; Union, should have been
offered in vain.
We believe there has been a general dis
position to deal magnanimously with a con
quered foe, though that enemy had perpe
trated one of the most monstrous wrongs
ever inflicted upon a lenient and forbearing
nation. The war for the Union has not
been prosecuted mainly ith a view to
overthrow and subjugate the Southern pea
pie, but to preserve the Union, and trans
mit it to posterity redeemed from tire dis
grace of Slavery, and purified from the
"sum of all villiauies," which was the fruit
ful source of all our National troubles.—
Hence the public mind was not averse to
those acts of charity and magnanimity, which
the I'resident might extend to a fallen and
humbled foe, provided nothing was done to
recnscitate the hvdra-headed monster, upon
whose death the Nation was resolved.
The policy of the President, in this
respect was not sufficiently explicit to sat
isfy the popular demand. The nation clam
ored for the punishment of treason, and for
the enactment of measures which should
secure at ouce'the inestimable blessings to
How from the struggle of the last four years.
The i'resident has been tardy in acceding
to the popular demand, and disappointment
has been the consequence We must con
fess that iu the general disappointment we
have had our full share. But as events
ripen into practical measures, it seems to
us that new hopes dawn upon the country,
and new expectations are inspired, that be
fore the solution of the great and intricate
question shall be full}' reached, the country
will be satisfied, the security of the future
be provided for, and the Freemen of thfe
country without respect to color, have all
the rights and privileges to which they arc
The forthcoming message of the Presi
dent will undoubtedly contain an exposi
tion of the policy which will govern him in
x'egard to the restoration of the late rebell
ions States, and which will enable the
country better to judge what he desires.
But the Congress so soon to meet, will have
an important part in the reconstruction and
reorganization of the seceding States. They
will find knocking at their doors for admis
sion, Representatives from most of the
States lately in rebellion The President
has already authoritveiy announced that
certain conditions would be indispcnsible
to the recognition of these States in their
reorganized form, and lias not hesitated to
dictate certain terms without complying
with which they need not look for favor.
It may be that Congress will not be satis
fied with the conditions imposed, but will
insist upon more adequate security for the
future peace and permanance of the coun
try. The indications are strongly in favor
of such a course.
Will the President submit the whole
question to Congress, or will lie endeavor
by the power of his position to coerce or
flatter Congress into the adoption of the
measures he may deem best suited for the
purpose? Is the President ready to make
an issue with Congress, if need be, and ore
ate dissension in the ranks of the party to
which he owes !h; present position? We
dot believe in the imrnineney of sue!) dis
aster, particularly after the warning tones
of the late elections. The power of the Ad
ministration might seduce Congressmen
from the path of duty, hut there is not a
Republican Congressional District which
will not hold its Representative to a strict
accountability and to a zealous scrutiny in
regard to the important measures to en
gage their attention in thp next Congress.
Si H IKE OF J'RESTOX KING. —It is with no
ordinary feelings of regret that we publish
the announcement of the probable suicide
of Hon. PRESTON KING, Collector of the port
of New-York. There seeing to be no doubt
that he committed suicide by jumping off a
North River ferry boat. At latest accounts
his body had not been recovered, although
every exertion had been made by his friends
to find it. The lamentable deed was com
mitted while he was in a state of mental
aberration or depression.
No man in the Nation enjoyed in a great
er degree the confidence and respect of the
people than PRESTON KING. Associated at
its origin with the leaders of the Free Soil i
movement, lie has stood " faithful amongst I
the faithless," never faltering in his devo-!
tion to the cause of Human Freedom, labor
ing with unwavering zeal and fidelity, for
the success of the cause in which his heart
and mind were alike engaged. Political
friends and opponents equally awarded him
the credit of being au upright, honest, con
scientious man. Of late years his great
obesity, and his sedentary habits, have ef
fected his general health,and produced that
mental disorder which finally led to the
commission of the deplorable deed, tliat de
prives the Nation of one of its most upright
men, and one of its wisest counsellors.
We learn from Washington that
Secretary MCCUI,I,OCH is engaged in comple
ting the animal reports of the Treasury
Department. It is believed that he will
strongly urge the reduction of the currency
by cautious measures, and continue as fast
as possible his plans for the reduction of
the general debt. He is not in favor of a
permanent sinking fund for redemption of
debt, but prefers the utmost increase of
the revenues of the government.
teg' We have some possibly exaggera
ted reports byway of New-Orleans from a
Matamoras paper. They state that tbe Lib
erals, or Juarists, have been seriously cut
up, that two Generals have been killed, and
CORTINAS aud two or three others wounded.
The same paper denies that the Imperial
gunboat fired upon the people ou the Amer
ican side of the river, and gives currency
to a wild story about a plot to murder Gen.
MEJIA and surrender the town of Matamor
lion. Preston Ling, Collector of the Port
of New York, whose nervous system has
been seriously deranged for nearly three
weeks, left his room at the As tor House on
Monday week at 1 a. m., remarking that a
walk before breakfast would do him good.
All day Monday no word of his where
abouts reached his anxious friends, nor un
til 12 o'clock Tuesday could any trace or
clue be Obtained. Messrs Terwilliger and
Usher, of the Custom House, then heard
that a person was drowned the day before
from a Iloboken ferry-boat. Upon visiting
the boat they ascertained that a man, an
swering closely the description of Mr. King,
came from a West-street car to the ferry
boat. Soon after the boat left the dock,
two children going to school gave the al
arm, they had seen a man jump overboard.
The boat was stopped, but nothing could
be seen. A hat left upon the deck was sub
sequently identified as belonging to Mr.
King. The ticket-master saw Mr. King
step from the car, noticing him particularly
from his great weight.* He describes his
person and dress with such exact accuarcy
as to leave deither doubt, nor shadow of
doubt, as to his iueutity. Mr. King spoke
to him, asked him how long before the boat
would start, and what was the fare, aud re
marked that it was a Hue morning.
Mr. King was unable to stand the pres
sure of his official position. Every allega
tion of misconduct iu subordinates dis
turbed him. The great number of merito
rious and wounded officers aud soldiers
asking for situations, excited his sympath
ies. Two or three reported cases of fraud
alarmed him to such a degree that two
weeks ago bis nerves gave way. It was
suggested that he should go to Oirdens
burg for a week or fortnight in the hope
that repose and home associations would
tranquilize his ruind. lie did go, but find
ing no rest there, returned to the Astor
House on Saturday. It was immediately
evident that no favorable change had oc
curred. He said to the friends around him
that he had broken down ; was incapable
of making any effort; that he had no judg
ment or memory, and no power to resist
what he knew to be imaginary evils. In
the meantime, his mental and physical
health was unimpaired. Un Sunday, in the
morning, he hcquiesed in a suggestion of
attending church, but did not go. He re
quested that Mr. Weed should be sent for
early in the morning, and passed most of
the day in conversation with him and two
or three other friends. He spoke freely of
his mental aberration twenty-live years ago,
and expressed a desire now to go to an as
ylum. Yet all he said proved that his miud
was now unclouded and undisturbed. His,
nervous system, and that only, was effec
ted. But it was quite clear that lie must
soon have relief. On Saturday afternoon
and Sunday, he frequently spoke of re
signing ; and it was arranged that, after
an examination by Dr. Brown, of the
Bloomingdale Asylum, on Monday, he would
either resign then, or await, for a few days,
the effect of medical treatment. He had
been disinclined to consult a physician until
informed that Dr. Brown was at the head
of an asylum. He remarked to Mr. Weed
twice, on Sunday, that death, if it could be
reached without crime, would be a relief.
He had intervals of tranquility when his
mind could be drawn away from the evils
: created, to the fact that in all respects his
circumstances and condition were such as
: bring contentment ; that he had no cares,
j no sorrows, no causes of anxiety ; and that
his lot, compared with hundreds of thous
ands, was enviable. To all he assented,
and for half an hour, cheerfulness returned
jto him. Finally, when Mr. Weed left him
| on Sunday evening, he seemed quite cou
tent to await the interview with Dr. Biown,
who came on Monday, hut the patient had
departed to return no more.
Mr. King was educated at Union College,
where he was a classmate of Bishop Pot
ter. He studied law at Ogdensburg, but
had small experience or interest in its prac
tice. His mind, taste and habits took a
political direction. In all things he was
an honest, earnest man, acting always up
on convictions. His political creed was as
conscientiously a creed as that of a divine
or an apostle.
Mr. King came into public life as a mem
ber ot Assembly in 1835, from St. Law
rence, and was reelected in 1836, 1837 and
1868, ffe was elected to Congress in 1843,
and reelected in 1845. In 1857, Mr. King
was elected to the Senate of the United
States. At the close of his term in the
Senate, Mr. Seward offered him a foreign
mission, but after a few days' reflection, he
declined it. In 1862, Mr. Lincoln decided
to inane Mr. King Collector of this port,hut
the pressure for a change eased up, and it
was deferred. And finally, when appoin
ted by President Johnson, he entered with
reluctance upon the discharge of the duties (
fearing, as has unhappily proved to be the
ease, that the labor and responsibility wero
unsuited to his former "habits and pursuits.

BgL. A despatch received yesterday in
Washington by the Secretary of the Treas
ury, from E. M. Shelton, dated Galveston,
Texas, October 14th, gives the sad news of
the accidental death of the only brother of
President Johnson, fiom a gun-shot wound.
Mr. Johnson was the collector of Yelasco.
W3L. Gov. BROWNI.OW, of Tennessee, in a
letter to the Cincinnati Gazette, upon the
situation of affairs in the south, says : "In
a word, the rebels of the south have by no
means abandoned this long cherished idea !
of s eparatiiuj the. government. They are lo< ik
ing to this end ; and more they are on/an- j
izing with a view to this result. They I
have tried this in a wicked war of four '
: dreary years, and signally failed. Their
I purpose is to accomplish their infernal
j plans through the ballot box in Congress,
, and they look to the copperhead Dentoera-1-
ey and other northern traitors to aid them.
: Thank God, the recent elections at the
| north have blasted their hopes for the pres
ent, and taught them that the real people,
| the loyal masses of the great north, are all
; right.
" My hopes for the future are in the good-,
I ness, the obstinate loyalty and determined
! purpose of the Republican ma jority in Con- j
] gross. I pray God they will not admit reb
i els into Congress indiscriminately, because
they have taken the amnesty oath or ob
tained the Executive pardon. As prcsi
; dent Johnson said, let them occupy the
1 back seats for a few years.
" 1 am one of those at the south who be
lieve this war has closed out two years too
! soon ! The rebels have been whipped, but
not whipped enough.
" For saying these things I expect to be
j abused by all traitorous sheets at the north,
J and by all rebel papers south. Let them
' say out ; I am able to stand their abuse.—
I am for the American Union, regardless of
| the hate of sections, the war of parties, or
the malice of individuals."
i The Hon. C. L. Yullandigham visited Eaton,
Ohio, night before last to transact some
I business. As soon as it became generally
known that he was in the little town a ru
mor became prevalent that lie was there
for the purpose of making a speech. It
; happens that the people of Eaton are
| very much opposed to Mr. Vallaudigham
1 personally, and the idea of his making a
speech in their midst so exasperated a lot
j of the young men of the place, that at early
| candle-light they visited the place where he
1 was stopping and made a loud call for his
! appearance.. Understanding that trouble
| was in store for him, Mr. Vallaudigham i
| made a hasty exit from the house, and pur
! sued his retreat through fields and over
: fences in the direction of the depot, running
1 at the top of his speed, followed by an ttn
! gry and excited mob of boys and ynrnng
[ men, one <if whom struck him a severe
| blow and knocked him to the ground, while ,
!he was getting 'on the train. Cincinnati
