confidence in your administfetion.
The report is u:eag:e and unsatisfactory,
but I think it conveys, for the most part,
the spirit of our conversation. Therefore,
although the whole tenor of your words
led me to believe it was not tetbnded to
be kept private, I have refrained from an
swering the specific inquiries of anxious
friends, whom 1 "met on my ray hoiie,
lest I might, in soins fay, leave a wrong
impression on their minda.
Truly your friend,

I have just returned from an interview
with President Johnson, in which he
talked for an hour on the process of re.
construction of Ilebel States. His man
ner was as cordial, and his conversation
as free, as in 1863, when I met biia daily
in Nashville.
His countenance is Healthy, even more
so' tiian when I rst knew him.
I remarked, that the people of the
North wers anxious that tbe process of
reconstruction should be thorough, nd
they wished to support him in the arduous
work, but their ideas Were confused by
the conflicting reports constantly circula
ted, and especially by the present position
of the Democratic party. It is industri
ously circulated in th? Democratic Clubs

laughingly replied, "Major, have' you nev
er known a man wlio for many years had
differed from your views because you Were
in advance of him, claim them as his owu

I replied, I have often. Ho said, So
have I, and wed on : the Democratic
party finds its old position uutenable, and
is coming to ours ; if it has come up to
our position, I am glad of it. - You and I
need no preparation for this Conversation ;

Individuals tried to carry thorn out, but
did not succeed, as a aan nay try to cut
his throat and be prevented by the by
standcis ; and you cannot say he cut his
throat because Ls tried to do it. :
Individuals may eomniit treason, and
be punished, and a large number of indi
viduals may constitute a rebellion and be
ptiuifnea a traitors, fcojio States tried
6"u' Btu we opposea
it, nonestiy, oecause we bSieved it to be
wrong ; and we have succeeded in putting
down the Rebellion. The pover of those
persons who made the attempt has been
crushed, and now we want to rtonstruct
the State Governments and have tie pow
er to do it. Tha State institutes are
prostrated, laid out on the gro'ial, end
they must be taken up and adapted to the
progress cf events ; this cannot be lone
in a moment. We are making very ratwi
progress, so rapid I sometimes reaiia rtrftdned by aa enlightened public judg-
11 appears nee a cream.
.We must net be in too much of a hur
ry, it is hotter to let them reconstruct
themselves than to force them to it ; for
if they go wroug, the power is in our
hands and we can check them at any
stage, to the end, and oblige them to cor
rect their errors ; we must be patictt with
them. I did not expect to keep out all
who were excluded from the Amnesty, or
even a large number of them, but I in
tended they should sue for pardon, and so
realize the enormity of the crime they
had committed.
You could not have broached tbe sub
ject of equal suffrage, ct tke North, scvet
years ago, and we must remember that the
changes at tho South have been more rap
id, and they have been obliged to accept
more unpalatable truth than tha North
baa f wa anna gin tlaaaa . tiaaa W rfigoa a
part, for we cannot expect auch large af
fairs will be comprehended and digested
at once. We must giva them time to as
derstand their new position.
. I have nothiag to conceal in these mat
ters, and have no desire or willingness tu
take indirect courses tu obtain what we
Our Government is a grand and lofty
structure ; iu searching for its foundation
we find it rests on the broad basis of pop.
ular rights. The elective franchise is sot
a natural right, but a political light.. I
am opposed to giving the States too much
power, aud also to a great consolidation of
poner in the Central Government.
. If I interfered wiih the vote iu tbe
Ilebel States, to dictate that the . negro
shall vote, I might do the same thing for
myovru purposes in Pennsylvania. Our
only safety lies in allowing each State to
control the right of voting by its own
hws, and re have tbe power to control
the Ilebel States if they go wrong. If
they rebel, we hav tbe urmy, and can
control them by it, and, if nesessary, by
legislation also. If the General Govern
ment controls tbe rirt to vote in the
States, it may establish such rules as will
restrict the vote to a small number, of
persous, and thus create a central despot
ism. M7 position here is different fVoa what
it would be if I was in Tennessee.
There I should try to introduce negro
suffrage, gradually ; first those who had
served in the army ; those who could read
and write, aud perhaps a proper qualifica
tion for others, say 8200 or 250.
It would net do to let tho negroes have
universal suffrage now; it woild breed a
war of races.
There was a lice in the Southern
States when the slaves of large owners
looked down upon non-slave corners be
cause they did not own slaves ; the larger
the number of slaves their masters owned
the prouder they were, and this has pro
duced hostility between the mast of tbe
whites' aed tho negroes. The outrages
arc mostly from' ncn-slaveholding whites
against tha negro, and from the negro
upon the con'-slaveholding whites.
The negro' will vote with the late mas
ter whom he dees not hate', rather tban
with the non-slaveholdiog white whom
he does hate. Universal suffrage would
create another war, not against us, but a
war of races''. . ; '
Another thing.- This Government is
tbe freest and best on tha earth, and I
feci sure is destined to last : - but to se
cure thisi, wi miHt elevate and purify th
ballot. I I'?r many years ccntcndcJ-'

Strength; they thought we gained thrce-

If we had no slaves, we should hare
hid twelve Representatives more, accord
ing to the then ratio of representation.
Cmgress apportions representation by
Sttes, not districts, and the State appor
tion by districts.
; Many years ajo, I moved in the Lce-
isiture that the apportionment of liep
ressutativej to Congress, in Tenncsse,
should be by qualified voters.
The apportionment is now fixed until
1872, before that time we might change
the basis of representation from popula
tion to qualified voters, North as Tell as
South, and in diie course oi time, the
States, without regard to eolor, might

some places people would rebel th e impu
tation of Deing desirous to procure hus
band or wife. Not so in Gualan. They
frayed publicly for what they considered
a blessing. Some of tho men were so
much in earnest, that perspiration stood
in large drops upon tBeir faces, and none
thought that praying for. a husband need
tinge the cheek of a modest maiden. I
watched the countenance of a young In

hope, and while her eyes were resting up
on the image, (Sani Lucia,) and her

imagine that her heart was full af some

The Vienna correspondent of the Lon
don Timet writes, that for some time it
has been observed that the Archduke Ru
dolf, the heir-apparent to the Austrian
throne, has lost much of his fresh color
tad healthy appearence ; but the cause of j
tbe change In the child's health is only '.
now known to the public. A few days
ago, Dr. Losh sheer, a physician in whom
the Emperor and Empress have great con
fidence, was summoned from Prague ; and,
alter having carefully examined the little
patient, recommended temporary change
of air, and a total change in ths system of
education. The Archduke, who is not
seven years of age, was not long ago taken
out of the hands of his aja, cr governess,
and entrusted to the care of General
Count Gondrecourt, who lost no time in
begitcicg to give the child such an edu
cation "as would speedily make a man of
him." The little boy was practically
ffght Uvc languages at once ard the same
time, by means of attendants of fire dif
ferent nationalities; he was regularly drill
ed, and every now and then he was awa
kened in the night in order that He might
learn to have his wits about b!m. Tbe
results of as absurd system ef education
tcre soon apparent, and the heir to the
Austrian throne is now at Iffchl for the
benefit, of his health. General Count
Gondrecourt, who knows how to handle a
brigade as well as any man in the service,
haa get leave of absence ; and tha chantcs

The author of a ftue article about Bird
ia the last Atlantic is aa admirer of the
hen hawk, of whieh he is able to say some
things as fine and eloquent as hero-worshippers
utter about their questionable
h-Jmatt idols. Here is one of them
"The calmness and dignity of this hawk
when attacked by crows or the king-bird,
are well worthy of him. ' He seldom
deigns to Coticc his noisy and furious an.
tagonist, but deliberately wheels about in
that aerial upiral, and mounts and mounts,
till hia persuor grows dizzy and return to
earth again. It is quito original, thai
this mode of getting rid of an unworthy
opponent, rising to the heights where the
braggart is dazed and bewildered, and
looses bis reckoning ! I am uot sure but
t is worthy of imitation "
That is well said, and tCercby hangs a
moral vWch is quite as. wel put by a re
viewer in the Traveller: "'Tis a pity
that so loftily disposed a gentleman should
be so cruel, and a thief, and his flight
heavenward should ha79 a hen-roost rob
bery for its point of departure ! . Tbe fin
est "rise" we ever saw a hen hawk make,
the cruel depredator had a screeching
chicken in possession. jt what a pic

part were no hindrances to his reacbiu?

It Las been feared that Jeff Davis
might escape punishment, on the princi
ple that seems to prevail in some eases,
that when wickedness reaches a certain
magnitude it takes a place above recogni
zable crime, and becomes a sublime vir"
tue or a stupendous joke. Tbe issue in
the instance of the fallen rebel chief will
depend much upon whether the govern
ment pledges itself beforehand as unwar
ily as the schoolmaster did in the folloV

ed' to be very dirty. Knowing this, on
his way to the teacher's desk, ha spit up
on the palm of his right hand, wiping it
off on the side of his rantaloons.
"Give me your baud, sir," said the
teacier, very Btearnly. Out went the
right hand, partly cleansed. The teacher
looked at it a momant, and said, "Daniel,
if you will 'find another hand in this
school-ioom as filthy as that, I will let
you off this time." .Instantly from be

In a sTiort ride which we mads out of

two churches arsund which were fences
but no trees. Both looked as though
they had been built a dozen years. All
around, the dwellings were coiy and well
shaded, but the churches had gone along
neglected, anl unless seme (liferent plan

trcless till ths roofs drop off or the

thoughtful about their own dwellings,
and forget the temple of God in which
they worship? 1 There is nothing that
gives such aa air of rcjose and comfort
to a "meeting-house a3 therow of shade
trees in front izd on either side. Is
there a trustee or other official member
who worships in a church without the
"trees," who will this fall be removed to
action in this matter ?
