DEAR GAZETTE A sojourn of four days in the Capital of "the nation" (I say "nation," for as to the Republic— Ilium fuit!) has convinced me thut po litical quiet prevails here to a much greater extent than even in any part of sedate old Pennsylvania. As the heart itself is only a piece of dull flesh, so the seat of government is compara tively lifeless as regards political agita tion ; but, as the heart sends the blood throbbing through all the veins, so the legislation of the capital gives motion and excitation to all thecurrents of pol itics running and rushing throughout the country. Sumner may growl his most threatening gutterals, Boutwell may rage in the most approved Mas sachusetts style, States may be abolish ed, the President impeached, Liberty itself subverted; no one here is dis turbed in his equanimity by any thing of the sort. Such things are regarded here as matters of course. In the way of revolution there can be "nothing new under the sun" to the people of this city. But the doses which fail to stimulate Washingtonians, excite to fe ver the people of the country. It is well that this is true. It is well that men are not all so callous as to be un impressed by the subver ion of the government and the loss of liberty. In the country there is much specula tion in regard to the proposed impeach ment of the President. Here it is scarcely mentioned. Shrewd men, when interrogated upon the subject, say the President will be removed, yet such men do not seem to think it prop er to sound the alarm to the country. A strange spell seems to be fastened upon those who should exert every netve to save the government. But the true-hearted yeomanry of the North will not brook the deviltry which robs them as well of liberty as of live lihood, and their voice will one day break the enchantment which is upon those who should be sentinels on the watch-towers of Freedom. An election for municipal officers was held in the city of Georgetown, on Monday last. It was the first experi ment under the rule of "universal suf frage" established for this district by Congress. The election passed off in an orderly manner, as how could it do otherwise, when no challenges of voters were permitted, an armed force of one hundred and forty men being on hand to prevent any such challenges and "to quell disturbances.'* By this means, some hundreds of negroes from Freedmen's Village, in Virginia, were "voted" for the Radical candidate, and the white men of Georgetown were beaten by ninety-six majority in a vote of two thousand. The city councils, however, are conservative and the Rad ical mayor will be powerless for mis chief. Georgetown and Washington are filled with negroes who came to these cities during the war, nine-tenths of whom can neither read nor write, and many of whom have no other than their old plantation names of "Sam," and "Bill" and "Joe," and are, there fore, compelled to manufacture names for themselves when they come to be enrolled upon the poll-books. This el ement is strongenough to out-vote the conservatives, and the two cities of the District of Columbia are now, to all in tents and purposes, politically speak ing, in the hands of emancipated negro slaves. This state of affairs, of course, cannot last long. History solves the problem as to the fate of the black man when thrown into collision with the Caucasian. Let those who pin their politics to the skirts of emancipated negro slaves learn the lesson of his tory. On Wednesday night last, there was quite a lively scene in the Senate. A debate arose upon the question of the payment of Assistant Assessors of In t?rnal Revenue in the excluded States, when Senators Sumner and Chandler -mured out a torrent of abuse upon Ir. MeCulloch, the Secretary of the Treasury* Mr. Chandler declared that the Secretory was pauper" and to tally unfit for the position which he occupied. Senators Hendricks. Sher man, Buckalew and Fessenden defend ed the Secretary against the onslaught of Sumner and Chandler, and the lat- tercarae out of the "scrimmage" con siderably the worse for the wear. Sen ator Fessenden (Radical as he is) decla red that he had not words to character-j ize the mitrageousness of the language used by Chandler, and said that it was false from beginning to end. The veto of the Military Reconstruc tion Bill has not yet been sent into Congress, but is hourly expected. It is just now rumored that the President , has signed it, which I doubt. It is a measure which would create revolution in any country but this, and I fear will: finally result in war even among the phlegmatic people of the United (?) j States. It is unnecessary that I should refer to the details of this iniquitous bill; suffice it to say that it annihilates the State Governments of the South and makes that section the Poland of the Union. In view of the fact, how ever, that if the Southern communities (how can we any longer rail them States t ) are not represented in Congress | by the next Presidential election, they will have no voice in that election, it is a question whether the Southern peopie will not conform to the require ments of this bill, and demand repre sentation under it. They will be com pelled to adopt the constitutional a mendment and negro suffrage, but they hope to be able to control their emanci pated slaves and thus slay Radicalism with its own sword. I would not be surprised to learn that a movement will soon be made, by prominent South ern men, looking to the end which I havejust indicated. The tariff bill is at present under consideration in the House. There is great fear that it will fail for want of time. The diversity of interests which ask to be "protected," causes consider able clashing among those who want a tariff, and the iron men and wool men and flax men are all at loggerheads. New England having succeeded in get ting her manufactures protected, now protests against a like protection of Pennsylvania coal. The House com mittee has reduced the duty on that ar ticle from $1.25 to 50 cents per ton, but an effort is now being made to increase the duty when the matter shall come before the House. Our coal-operators can judge from this of the fairness and magnanimity of Radical New Eng land. The hotels are swarming with poli ticians of every hue, whose business here is to reconstruct the vacant reve nue offices in their respective districts. Things are at sixes and sevens in this regard and there is no prophesying what will be the upshot of the strug gle between the Secretary of the Treas ury and the Senate. There are plenty of long faces on both sides. I have spent some time in sight-see ing around the capital, but must fore go, for want of space, the pleasure of relating my experience. In the mat ter of art, I cannot help referring to the statue of Lincoln, placed in the ro tunda of the Capitol. It is a short and thick-set representation of a tall and spare man—in short it resembles Lin coln, in form, about as mnch as it does the Kentucky giant. In the dome of the Capitol there is a grand painting which a grave and reverend Senator declares is a picture of the Father of his Country surrounded by the girls of the Canterbury. On the top of the dome is a brownish looking woman, with the appearance (from the front of the Cap itol) of having her head knocked off. But I must close. B. F. M. SPRING ELECTION'S. It will be remembered by our Dem ocratic friends that the Spring Elec tions are held on Friday, the 15th inst. Our friends should be vigilant and ac tive. Let them turn out to a man, and elect a full conservative ticket in every township, wherever we have the vote to do it. This is of far greater import ance than many suppose. Democrats sometimes stay at home and allow the Radicals to achieve triumphs where there are Democratic majorities. We trust we shall have nothing of this kind to record at the coming election. —The mode of voting was changed by the law passed last winter. Here tofore candidates could be voted lor on a separate slip of paper. Now all town ship officers are required to be on one slip, with the word "Township" at the head, the slip or ticket folded so that the word township is on the outside. All borough officers are also to be pn one slip or ticket, which is to be head ed "Borough" and folded in like man ner. Care should be taken in this mat ter or votes may be lost. Gov. SwANX.last Friday,sent a mes sage to the Maryland Legislature, sta ting that he should not accept the U nited States Senatorship, but would re tain the Governor..hip of Maryland. He did this at the solicitation of prom inent citi/zens. BADICALISX. Radicalism and corruption go hand in hand in this country. Indeed we are of the opiuion that this is natural and that it has always been so. Just as insanity and drunkenness are some times hereditary and constitutional, so the peculiar temperament that makes a man Radical, goes far to make him corrupt and dangerous whenever temp tation offers, or when interest, ambi tion or resentment prompt him to oth er than honorable actions. This may not be true of the rank and tile who are mere followers of doctrines cun ningly devised.by their leaders, but of the leaders themselves, who have stud ied and understand the nature and ten dencies of their teachings, it is scarcely questionable. The history of Radical ism in all ages and in every country that has ever felt its malign influences, justifies these assertions. But aside from the illustrations of history, we have other reasons for believing them to be true. Radicalism originates in an over-weening pride of human rea son, and a contempt for old and well established land-marks of all kinds, whether in morals or politics. It can originate in no other way. The "High er Law" doctrine isessential to its very existence. Thus, jn the Politics of our own country, its leaders boldly declare that there is a "Higher Law" than the Constitution, and treat that instrument and the laws of the land which em body the accumulated wisdom of ages, as of no value. In morals and religion the same men are equally intolerant and dangerous. Here, too, old land-marks are swept away and their boasted "Human Rea son" and "Higher Law" reigns su preme. Whenever a part of the Bible conflicts with their fanatical notions, they ruthlessly tear out the leaf and de clare that it is no part of Revelation. Gerrit Smith, one of their champions, boldly avowed this shocking doctrine, in a speech a few days ago, and most of the Radical leaders believe the same doctrine, and carry it out, although they may be too cowardly to avow it openly. Of this sort are the. public men who have been thrown to the sur face by Radical triumphs at the polls since 1856. They include among their number the Free-thinkers, Scoffers, In fidels, Atheists and every shade of scepticism, from Atheism down to the milder forms which assume the garb of a Christian church, in order the more ef fectually to disseminate their moral poisons. Such are the men who now assume to direct the destinies of the na tion—men with no guide, moral or po litical, except their boasted Reason and "Higher Law." What eouid be ex pected of them except that which has actually taken place. They perpetrate the lesser villainies of political life, nat urally and seemingly with infinite rel ish. When urgent occasion seemed to require, they have shown themselves capable of doing things that blanch the cheek and curdle the blood in one's veins. It is not, therefore, strange that the advent of the Radical party to power in this country, began an era of legis lative corruption and infamy that has perhaps never had a parallell in the his tory of the world. That whole Legis latures should be bribed, that individ ual members should be bought like beef in the market, and that scoun drels of all grades should swarm like maggots in a putrid carcass, wherever Radicals are in power, is precisely what should have been expected. All this has come and it will continue until the buzzards that now fatten upon the body politic are driven from their feast and men are elected in their stead who will bring to their work an honest heart and a decent regard for the Bible and the Constitution of their country. THE VETO MESSAGE. The President has vetoed the Milita ry Reconstruction Bill, and also the act "regulating the tenure of civil offi ces." The arguments against both bills are unanswerable. But the Rad icals did not halt to even consider the facts presented by the President. Up on the receipt of the vetoes, they at once acted upon the bills and passed them into laws by the constitutional number of votes. The Military Recon struction Bill is now the law of the land. Ten States of the Union are re duced to Territories, and military power placed above the civil authori ties, in time of peace, and in the face of all constitutional prohibitions to the contrary. The only hope now is the Supreme Court. The President has exhausted his constitutional power in defence of the Union, the Constitu tion and the perpetuity ol our form of government. The appeal now is to the supreme judicial tribunal of the land. That hotly, in the "military commis sion" and the "test oath." eases, nobiy vindicated the Constitution from the assaults of the Radicals, and the people again look in that direction for assist ance in preserving the life of the na tion from the acts of political assassins. The end of the contest between fnilita- ry despotism as represented by the Radicals, and civil liberty as champi oned by the Democratic party, is not yet. The latter organization will use all constitutional and lawful means to protect the people from the effect ef Radical legislation, and fight inch by inch pvery illegal and unconstitutional enactment attempted tobe enforced.— Age. FKOM VASIIIXGTOX. WASHINGTON, March 2—2.10 P. M. —The President has just sent to the House his veto of the military bill, for the more efficient government of the rebel States. WASHINGTON, March 2.—'The fol lowing is a synopsis of the President's Veto Message on the Military Recon struction Bill: He submits whether this measure is not in its whole charac ter, scope and object without precedent, and without authority, and in palpable conflict with the plainest provisions of the Constitution and utterly destruc tive to those great principles of liberty and humanity, for which our ancestors on both sides of the Atlantic have shed so much blood and expended so much treasure. The military rule which it establish es, is plainly to he used, not for any purpose of order, but solely as a means of coercing the people into theadoption of principles and measures to which it is known they are opposed, and upon which they have en undeniable right to exercise their own good judgment. He concludes by saying: He says the bill would seem to have upon its face that the establishment of peace and good order is not its real ob ject. Healludesto the conditions which must be fulfilled before the people of any Southern State can be relieved from the bondage of military domination. At present, ten States are denied rep resentation, and when the 40th Cong ress assembles on the 4th day of the present month, sixteen States will be without a vote in the House of Repre sentatives. The grave facts with the important question before us, should induce us to pause in a course of legislation which, looking solely to the attainment of po litical ends, fails to consider the rights it transgresses, the laws which it vio lates, or the institutions which it im peril.^. WASHINGTON, March 2.—The Presi dent has approved the Consular and Diplomatic bill,and the Military Acade my bill. Also the bill to refund to each person drafted under the calls of February and March, 18G4, who paid commutation to enter the service or furnish a substitute, the sum ofs3oo, that being the amount of money so paid by him ; it being the meaning of the amendatory act to exempt persons thus payingcommutationfroni further draft until that quota should be tilled, and not exceeding one year. The President has also approved the joint resolution extending for two years the use of cer tain vessels for quarantine purposes at the port of New York. The Senate of the United States last Saturday passed an Act for the relief of certain drafted men, which had been passed by the House of Representa tives on the last day of the last ses sion. It provides that the Secretary of War shall refund the three hundred dollars paid as commutation by the men draft ed under the amendatory enrollment act of February 24, 1804, where the same men were again drafted within one year and held to service or required to furnish substitutes. The draft under the cail of December 19, 1864, having been ordered at a very early day in this district, quite a number of the men who commuted in 1801 were again drqfted and entered the service or furnished substitutes, and similar cases exist in a number of the other districts of Penn sylvania, as.weil as in Delaware, Ken tucky and some parts of the West. The Act of February 24,1804, provid ed that the payment of commutation should exempt "until thatquota should be tilled and not exceeding one year." The quoto under the calls of February 1 and March 14. 1804, were never tilled. Notwithstanding the draft under the eail of Dec. 19, 1804, took place within one year from the time the men draft ed under the calls of February 1 and March 14,1804, paid commutation, the Provost Marshals were ordered by the War Department inexorably to hold the men drafted in the last draft who had so commuted. A contrary ruling, it is true, was made at a late day, but too late to avail to release those men whose ca. es had been theretofore adju dicated. Strange to say, the attempt to have the money refunded to these injured men was resisted by the War Depart ment, and it was only after repeated and persistent effort that the refunding act, doing measurable justice, was pass ed.

This act was passed through theearn estand tireless efforts ol'Capt.Geo. Eys ter, late Provost Marshal,—he having several times visited Washington to effect its passage. He first appealed to the Provost Marshal General to refund the money, but he refused, the Secreta r ry of War sustained his decision, and both those officers advised against the bill. Not daunted, Capt Eyster appear ed before the Military committees of Congress and presented the justice of the case so clearly that both reported favorably. The "bill was at first defeat ed in the Senate, but he effected a re consideration, a modified bill proposing to pay but Slot) was passed, but he again appeared before the House committee and ttie House refused to concur, and finally he effected the passage of the original bill. He was cordially aided by Gen. Coffroth last session and Gen. Koontz and Hon. K. McPherson also gave their earnest efforts to aid the suc cess of the measu re. — (Jhambcrsburg Re pository, Feb. 27. —A manufacturer in New York city is filling an order for two thousand thimbles at eighteen cents per dozen, for the manager of a popular gift enter prise.

BfETVS ITEMS. —T!ie Buffalo Commercial Advertiser publishes a complete list of the disasters on the lakes and tributary rivers in 18- 66. It fills six columns, with an aggre gate of seven hundred and thirty-four disasters, involvingthe lossof one hun dred and eleven lives and $1,647,428 in property. The greatest number of dis asters happened in June and October. The loss by sailing vessels was more than double that by steam vessels; but, though the lake business of last year was considerably in excess of that of 1865, the losses were not so great by for ty-one lives and a quarter of a million of dollars, showing a more favorable season for navigation in 1866 than in ISO; - ). —A gangof Georgetown negroes, the night after the election which made a darkey equal to "any other man," made a raid upon the store of Patrick Dona ghue,and, after nearly killing the pro prietor, carried off a large amount of bacon, brooms, and other property.

What use is freedom to a nigger unless he is allowed to steal ? -The registered voters of George town, I). C., were—whites 1,350; blacks 971—total 2,321. The poll was—for Welsh, the negro candidate, 1,010; Ad dison, White Man's candidate, 923—to tal I,o42—showing a poll of 379 less than the registry lists. From these figures it would appear that 48 white men (!) voted with the niggers and 379 white men did not vote. It is stated that Welsh is preparing a "grand en tertainment" for the nigs of both col ors. —The New York Herald recommends "government" to goto work coining ten cent pieces made of copper and nick el.
