The Destruction of Valparaiso.
This beautiful town, the principal sea
Iort on the West coast of South America,
ii now in ruins. Its population ten years
ago was about fifty thousand, and it was the
chief outlet uf the export productions of
Chili, consisting of hides, wool, tallow, in
digo, drup?, the precious metals, etc. Some
journals, we observe, are disposed to find
fault with the American Admiral off the
port for not preventing the Spanish bom
bardment. He had no authority to inter
fere, and is in no way subject to censure,
He was anxious to interpose to save the
city, as was also the French naval comman
der but the British fleet would not join in
matter and the idea of interference was a
bandoned. The loss by this bombardment
is estimated as high as twenty millions of
dollars, and number of our business men in
East will suffer largely by it. The Span
iards did not even spare the hospitals in the
city, or the Asylum for the Poor. The
towti was not fortified, and was without a
mounted gun to offer any resistance to the
bombardment. The Spanish commander
violated his pledge too, that he would fire
nothing but solid shot at the government
and public buildings only, and spare the
property of neutrals. The whole transac
tion was a fair specimen of Spanish "chival
ry." Wages and Prices. The Pittsburg
Commerced has prepared tables, showing
that while groceries, clothing and other ar
ticles of common use have decreased in cost
22 per cent, since April, 1865, there has
been au increase in the wages of mechanics
of 21 percent., making 43 percent, in favor
of labor for 1 866, as compared with 1865.
Thus wages and prices bear nearly the same
relation to each other as before the war, and
we are prepared to go on under the present
system of inflation till the debt shall be
chiefly paid, provided the Government will
let it be paid within ten years.
A most extraordinary" occurrence toot
place along the line of the Nashville and
Decatur railroad, between Columbia and
Pulaski, during a thunder storm last Friday
night. A half mile of the telegraph wires
were melted and divided over that whole
distance into small fragment, irregular in
shape and many of them no longer than a
buckshot or a small rifle ball. The frag
ments found along the whole distance would
not, if put together consecutively, make
more than thirty feet in length. The glass
insulators were burst aud the poles shivered
The Chambersburg Sufferers. The
Commissioners appointed to ascertain, or
assess, the losses sustained by the citizens
of Chambersburg by the burning of that
pluce by the rebels, with a view to a distri
bution of the State appropiation to the suf
fers, have performed that duty. The losses
foot up as follows : Ileal estate, $713,294
34; personal property, $915,137 24; total,
$1,628,431 5S. The State appropriation will
pay about thirty and seven-tenths per cent,
on the value of the property burned.
The reconstructed people of the late re
bellious State of Virginia, object to any
monuments being erected in that State,
which shall contain inscriptions commemo
rative of the victory of the Government
over treason. It is urged that monuments
only commemorative of peace should be
erected that the soldiers engaged in both
armies should be buried in common ceme
teries, and that no reference should be
inadeto the justice or the injustice of the
war on either side.
Niagara Ship Canal. The House
passed, by a large majority, a bill to incor
porate a company to construct a ship canal
around the Falls of Niagara. The bill pro
poses that the Government shall issue six
millions of dollars of six per cent, bonds, to
be dated Septemper 1st, 1866, and to run
for twenty years, to aid in the construction
of the canaL The bill provides elaborate
details for the construction of the canal.

THE PLAN OP EECONSTEUOTION. (
Views of the Cabinet. !
Washington City, May 1.
It is understood that in the eabinet meet
ing to-day, the President invited an expres
sion of opinion from the Heads of Depart
ment respecting the propositions reported
on Monday last by tlfe Committee on Re
construction. An interesting animated dis
cussion ensued. Secretary Seward declared
himself in very decided and emphatic terms
against the plan of the Committee, and in
favor of the immediate admission of the loy
al representatives from lately rebellious
Secretary McCulloch was as positive as
the Secretary of State in bis "opposition to
the plan recommended by the Committee,
and expressed himself as strongly in favor
of the immediate consummation of the I'res
dent's restoration policy by the admission
into Congress of loyal meu from the South
Secretary Stanton was equally decided in
his opposition to the Committee's proposi
tion. He was for adheariug to the policy
which had been agreed upon and consistent
ly pursued by the Administration, and he
was gratified that the President had brought
the subject to the consideration of the Cab
inet. Secretary Welles was unequivocally against
the committee s scheme, and was "anient in
his support of the President's policy, com
prehending instant admission into Congress
ot loyal Representatives lVoin the States
lately iu rebellion. "
Secretary Harlan was rather reticent, and
expressed no opinion.
Postmaster General Dennison ras in fa
vor of the President's policy, but expressed
doubts as to the precise time at which loyal
Representatives should be admitted.
Attorney General Speed was not present.
The President was earnest in his opposi
tion to the repv it of the Committee, and
declared himself against all measures prece
dent to admission of loyal representatives
from Southern States in shape of amend
ments to the Constitution or by passage of
law. He insisted that under the Constitu
tion no State could bo deprived ot its equal
sufl'nige in the Senate, and that Senators
and Representatives ought to be at once ad
mitted into the respective Houses as pre
scribed by law and the Constitution. He
was for a rigid adherence to the Constitu
tion as it is, and remarked, that having sus
tained ourselves under a terrible rebellion,
he thought the Government could be restor
ed wi hout resort to amendments. Here
marked in genera! terms that if the organic
law is to be changed at all, it should be at a
dme when all tie States and all the people
can participate in the alteration.
Opinion of the Press.
From the Washington Republican
The administration policy contemplates
the political as well as the military destruc
tion of the rebellion by the representation
of the late rebellious States through loyal
men in the councils of the nation; leaving
the question of debt to the intelligence of
the people whose honor and interest are
bound withiu it ; the discrepancy of the
representation basis to be adjusted by con
stitutional procedure; the preferable meth
od being to substitute electors for popula
tion in the basis hereafter ; the matter of
suffrage to be disposed of in the accustomed
American way by the separate States; and
the question of a humane and Christian peo
ple whose tame it lias been to be as magnani
mous in peace as they were brave in war.
This method of settlement has had, and
will retain our most ardent approval. Sub
mit it to-day to the entire voting population
of the hind, and at least three millions of
ballots would be recorded fir it. Against
the "radical" or Congressional policy, of
prohibiting the fundamental right of repre
sentation to States, either on the grounds
of penalty for misdeeds, to purchase some
additional advantage on the condition of
recognition, or to fetain political power by
the prolongation of restoration, we are,
"now, henceforth and forever" unrelenting
ly opposed. But the restoration of the U
nion, ly the recognition of all the States
within it, aud the representation of the
Southern people, is not a final settlement
of our difficulties. There still remaius
the debt, the negro and the ex-traitor.
From the Cincinnati Commercial.
As a meansof restoration and pacification,
it is not decidedly petinent or clearly practi
cable. It may do better for a party plat
form, than Sumner's programme developed
on the first day of the session, but there is
no happy stroke of stateeralt in it, and it
will be taken by the country as a lame re
sult of five mouths' strenuous effort. It is
wanting in the essentials of, a clear, simple
and conclusive policy, and does not meet
the demand of the country, for guarantees
of peace, liberty, credit and Union.
From the Chicago Republican.
These measures are wise, just, moderate,
and efficient. AH patriotic citizens will ap
prove tli cm. Some will feel that they do
not go far enough ; but the.-e will perceive
that they are as complete and thorough as
the present state of the public mind would
justify. If they do not contain everything
that all might desire, they certainly contain
nothing to which any can reasonably object.
They give no encouragement to the spirit of
rebellion. They make treason odious, and
give due prominence to faithful Union men,
while there is in them no. spirit of undue se
verity toward the mass of the misguided
people of the South. The Committee has
well employed its labors, and ' we do not
doubt that its policy of restoration will be
universally approved and adopted.
From the National Intelligencer
Now, as to the mockery of this scheme
of Mr. Stevens to effect restoration of rep
resentation in Congress. In the first place,
the requirements are such that not three
fourths probably not half of the States
will ratify these scandalous propositions of
amendment of the fundamental law. That
Mr. Stevens expects this can hardly be
doubted, since that by the proposed amend
ment, as we understand it, several Northern
States will lose in the number of their rep
resentation by the exclusion of foreigners
and others from the basis of representation.
Of course some of these States will not do
aught to abridge their power in Congress
for. the sake of elevating the negro of the
South to the hurt of the whites there. We
are speaking of the effect of things, not up
on their abstract merits. And if the requi
site three-fourth would ratify them, they
cannot do so for a long period, since that
the several Legislatures will not soon be in
regular session. Besides, who can say that
a future Radical Congress, acting in the bit
terness of spirit exercised by the present
one, will not see abundance of reason for
keeping out Southern representatives, upon
the pretence of not having fulfilled to the
letter provisions which have no doubt been
cautiously worded for that express purpose?
From the Philadelphia Oazette.
The more these propositions are examined
the better they appear to be for practical
working, i They vindicate the wisdom of
Congress, and ought to meet with prompt
acceptance in both houses. Of course there
can be no doubt as to their passage, though
in the Senate they will be met with some
opposition from Mr. Sumuer and'liis few fol
lowers. We hope not. But we are not
without an anticipation that the President
may see proper to lend his aid to this.great
measure of adjustment, as it is consistent
with his views and plans, and will be atten
ded with no unnecessary delay in its practi
cal working. The unanimity of the Repub
lican members ot the Committee in favor of
the plan ought to commend it to the support
of all who adhere to the great National

From the X. Y". Commercial Advertiser.
It is in reality a scheme to postpone the
restoration of the late rebel States to 1870,
or in other words to a point or time subse
quent to the next Presidential election. It
holds these States as "Territories," by dic
tating terms to them. It holds them as
'"States" by calling them so, and by giving
them a vote upon a constitutional amend
ment. It mixes things up in the most ab
surd manner, and all for the sake, not of
peace and harmony, but of controlling the
Presidential canvass of 1S6S. . . . Now we
have this new plan, which is a lame at
tempt to ratify what is good that the Presi
dent has done ; to ameliorate that which is
speedily evil ; to thwart the President's
"plan" for the future, and to substitute for
it a scheme fathered by no particular per
son, but, "a good enough Morgan till after
From the Cleveland Leader
We confessourselvesi-eriously disappoint
ed in the action. of the Committee. We
had hoped to see it adopt the simple. states
manlike and complete plan which Robert
Dale Owen matured and submitted to it
providing by constitutional amendment for
universal suffrage after the fourth of July,
1876, and for the restoration of each of the
rebellious States on their ratification of the
plan. This policy would have been just to
the freed me ii. generous to the South, and
sate for the Union. It would have given
us all the necessary guarantees tor the future
and would have spared us the necessity of
unrepublieau and dangerous disfranchise
ments and exclusions. But the Committee
had not that courage which 'in times like
these is the truest statesmanship, and in
stead of appealing at once to the universal
sense of ju.-tic-e in favor of the simple and
grand proposal of Mr. Owen, they have
schemed to indirectly accomplish the same
end by prohibitions and by penalties. The
plan adopted is, we fear, so lukewarm that
it will please neither North or South. It
will certainly be as distasteful to the rebels,
to the copperheads, and to President John
son, as Mr. Owen's, and it will not be near
ly as acceptable to the earnest Union men of
the country as that would have been.
We are in favor of the article reported by
the Committee, and hope to see it made a
part of the Constitution, but we' do not
think it contains sufficient guarantees to
make it the sole condition of readmitting
the rebel States. We think that it will yet
be found that the only safe foundation for
reconstruction is universal suffrage.
