The telegraph furnishes an iuteresting
account of an interview recently had be
tween President Johnson and a "distin
guished" member of the United States
Senate, in which the former took occasion
to express ,his views more clearly than
heretofore upon some of the subjects
which are eliciting pnblio - discussion at
the present time. It is stated that on the
question of the proposed amendments to
the Gonatitution, Mr. Johnson expressed
doubts at to the propriety at this time of
;malting any further alterations in that in
strument. "One great amendment," he
said, 're had already been made by which
slavery had forever been abolished within
the limits of the United States and a Na
tional. guarantee given that that institu
tion should never again exist in the land.
Propositions were becoming as numerous
as preambles and resolutions at town
meetings called to consider the most or
dinary questions connected with the ad
ministration of local affairs. All in his
opinion had a tendency to diminish the
dignity and prestige attached to the Con
stitution of the country, and to lessen the
respect and confidence of the people in
their charter of freedom. If, however,
amendments are to be made changing
the basis of • representation and taxation,
(and' he did not deem them at all neces
sary at present,) he knew of nonebetter
than a simple proposition embraced in a
few lines making, in each State the num
ber of qualified voters the basis of:repre
sentation and the value of property
the basis of direct taxation. Such a prop
osition could be embraced in the follow
ing terms
" Representatives shall be apportioned
among the several States which may be
included within the Union according lo
the number of qualified voters in each
State. Direct taxes may be apportioned
among the several States which may be
included within thbarnion according to
the value of all taxable property in each
of the States."
The President in this oonnection,„ the
telegram says, expressed the opinion that
the agitation of the negro franchise ques
tion In the District Qt Colunibis at this
time was the mar!), entering - wedge to the
agitation of, the question throughout the
States, and was ill-timed, uncalled for and
celculated odo great harm. He believed
that it would engender enmity and strife
between the two races, and lead to a war
between-them which would result in great
injury to both, and the certain extermin
ation of the negro population. Prece
dent* he thought should be given to more
inipcirtant and urgent matters, legislation
upon which was essential for the restore
tion - of the Union, the peace of the wan.

The Philadelphia Ledger, which has el.
most uniformly acted with the Republi
cans during the l ixwar, but which now
adopts President Johnson's thecry of re
construction, despairing of convincing its
party adherents by any other course of
reasoning, calls their attention to the in
fluenoe of the radical policy upon their
business affairs. It argues that the early
pacification of the country is essential to
the prosperity of the North as well as the
South, and that the continuance of the
present unsettled state of things,must op
erate disastrously upon the interests of
both sections. "If we want trade with the
Southern States or their cities, we must
aid them to have their affairs settled im ,
mediately. People do not engage in plant
ing rice, cotton, sugar, tobacco, kc., or in
producing rosin, pitch, turpentine and
other naval stores, or in merchandising.
with'energy and alacrity, when they do
not know whether they may call the pro
ducts of their labor and capital their own
or not. Nor do they enter into any busi
ness operations with hearty good-will while
all their affairs are so unsettled that they
do not know whether they are controlled
by themselves or other people. If the in
dustry of the South is to be brought into
active operation at an early day, their af
fairs must be settled at an early day, so
that they may know where they stand.—
And this we do not urge any more on
their account than on our own. If Con
grass is going to tax Southern cotton
heavily for the sake of adding largely to
the national revenues, it should first take
care that the people of the Southern States
shall be placed in a position to raise it—
otherwise there may be but littlecotton
to tax. The earlier and more certainly
they are assured o' a generous and perma
nent policy, the more zealously will they
go to raising cotton. So of all other arti
cles and of all other interests. If Congress
would have the South contribute its full
share of the excise and other taxes, tben
Congress should act, so as to set all the
wheels of Southern industry and trade
promptly and actively- in motion!' The
Ledger, in presenting these views before
Its Republican readers, displays rare fore
sight and policy. . With most et that party
the sentiments of justice and charity and
respect for eonstituticoaL rights have be
come so completely absorbed by bigotry
and hatred that an appeal to their it ter
ests is the only one that' will bring them
back to reason. Convince them once that
it is to the advantage of their pockets to
have a speedy return of the Southern
States to the Union, and they will come
flocking to the conservative fain* sheep

The New York Tribune, with all its fa

proposed increase of the regular army,
and especially to Sens tar Wilson's scheme
for_placing the standard at 50,000, it

Johnson's views on the proposed Consti

Wm. P. Everts, a leading New York law

Mont to assist the Attorney General in
the trial of Davis, and that he is to receive
a hundred thousand dollars for hui services.—
One hundred thousand for • single case

Copperheads may be disposed to grumble
at it ; but what of that ? Is not this'the
greatest, freest and richest government
upon the face of the globe•; and how would
it look if it failed to be generous to those
whom it employ,' to_prosecute its charges
against the "arch fiend of the wickedest
rebellion that ever cursed the universe ?"
Close your mouths, ye grumbling 'sym
pathizers," and pay your taxes without a
murmur. The debt is but a trifle, and the
taxes are light, and why should you com
plain of the beggarly expense of a hund
red thousand dollars, to pay a Republican
lawyer for what scores equally as able
would be willing to undertake for a mere
moiety of the sum. It is thus the Gov&rn
ment rewards those who were faithful to
it in the days of its misfortune, and if any
do not like it, let theta curse away ; they
are mere subjugated creatures at any rate;
not worth noticing.
The counsel for Davis are Charles O'Con
nor, of New York, and Hon. George E.
Pugh; of Ohio, both men of rare talent,
and holding a position among the first
lawyers of the nation. Information from
Washington leads us to believe that the
long looked for trial of Davis will not be
delayed more than a few weeks further.

forming the most remarkable era in the Mum
of the place. Rev. Edward Payson Ham
mond came down from Elmira, where he had
been preaching for four weeks. ea the 611
inst., and has held one or two meetings hers
daily until the 184. He first appeared on
Saturday night at a meeting is behalf of Sun
day schools. On finedgy he spoke in the
Methodist Church, and the mite afternoon be
addressed a large audience of children sad
others in ilia peculiar manner which hu gives
him his world wide reputation as the chi'
dren's preacher. His message from God, like
good seed "fell into goad ground. and Isn't
forth good fruit" in the conversien of some
of the dear little ones at that first shadren's
meeting. He preached a powerful discourse,
or rather series of short discourses, on Sun
day night, enchaining for hoirs the attentioa
of a large and unwearied congregation by his
peculiarly interesting mode of illutratiag
gospel truth.
