Constitution will not only be unavail- , ing but mischievous. It will but ) multiply the present evils instead of ro ; moving them. The Constitution in its integrity and vigor throughout the, length and breadth of the land is the , best of all compromises, besides ourdu- j tv does not in my judgment leave us a choice between that and any other. I believe that it contains the remedy j that is so much needed, and if the co ordinate branches of the government) would unite upon its provisions they would be found broad enough and strong enough to sustain, in time of peace, the nation which they bore safely through the ordeal of a protracted civ il war. Among the most sacred guar antees of that instrument are those which declare that "Each State shall have, at least, one representative,"and that "no State, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate." Each House is made the "judge of the elections, returns, and qualifications of itsown members," i and may "with the concurrenceoftwo thirds expel a member." Thus, as heretofore urged, in the admission of Senators and Representatives from any and all the States, there can be no just grounds of apprehension that persons who are disloyal will be clothed with powers of legislation, for this could not happen when the Constitution and the laws are enforced by a vigilant and faithful Congress. When a Senator or representative presents his certificate of electioh, he may at once be admitted or rejected; or should there be any question as to his eligibility, his cre dentials may be referred for investiga tion to the appropriate committee, if admitted to a seat, it must be upon evi dence satisfactory to the House of which he thus becomes a member, that lie possesses the requisite constitutional and legal qualifications. If retusrHi ad mission as a member for want of due allegiance to the Government, and re turned to his constituents, they are ad monished that none but persons loyal to the United States will be allowed a voice-in the legislative councils of the nation, and the political power and moral influence of Congress are thus effectively exerted in the interests of loyalty to the Government and fidelity to'the Union, and is it not far better that the work of restoration should be accomplished by simple compliant with the plain requireinentsofthe Con stitution than by a recourse to meas ures which in effect destroy the States and threaten the subversion of the Ge neral Government. All that is necessary to settle this simple but important question, without further agitation or delay, is a willingness on the part oiall to sustain the Constitution and carry its provisions into practical operation. If to-morrow, either branch ofC'ongre s would declare that upon the presenta tion oftheircredentials, members con stitutionally elected and loyal tothe gen eral Government, would be admitted | to seats in Congress, while all others would be excluded, and their places; remain vacant until theselection by the people of loyal, qualified persons, and if i at the same time assurance were given | that this policy would be continued until all the States were represented in Congress, it would send a thrill of joy throughout the entire land, as indica ting the inauguration of a system which must speedily bring tranquility to the public mind. While we are legislating upon sub jects which are of great importance to the whole people, and which must af fect all parts of the country, not only during the life of the present genera tion, but for ages to come, we should remember that all men are entitled at least to a hearing in the councils which decide upon the destiny of themselves and their children. At present ten States are denied representation, and when the Fortieth Congress assembles on the fourth day ofthe present month, sixteen States will be without a voice in the House of Representatives. This grave fact, with the important ques tions before us, should induce us to pause in a career of legislation which, looking solely to the attainment of po litical ends, fails to consider the rights it transgresses, the law which it vio lates, or the Constitution which it im perils. ANDREW JOHNSON. WASHINGTON, March 2, 18G7. • Ktnrtliii? New* Tram Irelanl--The Fe nian War Commenced in Earnest. LONDON, March 6. —The Fenians have torn up the rai is and blocked up the roads between Cork and Dublin, completely suspending railway travel between those cities. The government does not feel any alarm at the aspect of affairs, as very efficient measures have been taken, andare now making, tosup press all attempts at insurrection throughout Ireland.

The telegraph wins have been cut in various parts of the country. Dublin, March 6.—An attack was made by a body of Fenians upon Drog heda barracks yesterday. The attack ing party was received with great gal lantry by the military and police sta tioned in the barracks, and several vol leys were given to the assailants, who retired in confusion, losing a number in killed and wounded, whom they carried off the field. The repulse was complete. Seven of the government forces were wounded, including three of the police. Liverpool, March 6. —Dispatches have been received by the government sta ting that an attack was made by a small force of Fenians upon Castle Martyr yesterday, but the enemy were repulsed aud driven off.

WASHINGTON, March 8, 1867 DEAR GAZETTE:— I have seen the Thirty-ninth Congress die the death, and the Fortieth, Phoenix-like (pardon the novelty of the figure) spring from the ashes of its predecessor. I have seen Cowan depart from the Senate and Cameron occupy his place. Ben. But ler, of the baggy eyes, Fernando Wood theshrewd, James Brooks the eloquent, John Morrissey, the observed of all Congressional observers, I have seen them all "in all their glory." Butler has already spread himself on the im peachment question. He out-Ashleys Ashley on thatjsubject. The insomnious had better look to his laurels, or they will go the way of—Southern spoons. There are two factions in the im peachment wing of the Radical party. One, led by Ashley, desires the refer ence of the whole question to the Judi ciary Committee. The other, headed by Butler and Covode (of Pennsylva nia) wants a special committee raised to investigate the matter. There is considerable sparring between these ri val factions, but the Ashley party ap pear to be the stronger. There is also a considerable portion of the Radical members entirely opposed to impeach ment. Of this branch, Judge Spauld ing, of Ohio, is the leader. He is an able, shrewd and determined man and will give the impeachers considerable trouble. As matters look at present, it is next to a certainty that articles of impeachment will be preferred against the President within sixty days. The Radicals in Congress dare not halt in their revolutionary course. It is the mere momentum of headlong progress that has thus far carried the people with them. They must go forward— forward. If they stand still, the mas ses will have time to think, and reason and reflection are certain death to Rad icalism. To retrogade would be still worse. It would be nothing of annihilation. But, on the other hand, to advance, is to challenge fiananeial ruin, war and anarchy. Between the horns of this awful dilemma, the For tieth Congress finds the Radical party. That it will be impaled upon one or the other, is almost certain. The veto of the Military Reconstruc tion Bill, is considered by men of all parties, the ablest state paper of mod ern times. If people would but read this veto message as good citizens should, with minds void of prejudice, they would be convinced of the correct ness of the President's position, as well as of his true and lofty patriotism. Can it be possible that any sane man is willing to hand over the destinies of the whole Southern people to the keep ing of negroes just emerged from the "ignorance and barbarism of slavery?" Yet such is the effect of the Military Reconstruction Bill. Under it the ne groes will govern the South, not in telligent, educated negroes, but "Sam" and "Joe" and "Bill," the late field hands who, we are told by the Radicals themselves, are "ignorant, degraded and barbarous." What is to be the end of this fearful experiment I ask not to foreknow. "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." The conservative people here are much cheered by the result of the spring elections just held in New York. Almost everywhere in that State, the Democrats have made very large gains. In the city of Rochester, the telegraph reports a Democratic gain of over 1300. There are also good hopes of Democrat icsuycess in Connecticut. There is no doubt of a gain of one Congressman, and, perhaps, two, for the Democracy, in that State. The present Congress is composed of representatives from but twenty States. Seventeen States are totally unrepresen ted. Notwithstanding, this, the Radical leaders are ready to legislate upon matters of the gaavest national import. How could an impeachment brought by a Congress thus constituted, be sus tained before the American people? Is it not preposterous to expect that so monstrous a thing would be endured by any right-minded man? Vet Ben. Butler and his followers, insist upon this course and a large minority of the Radicals in Congress stand ready to adopt it. Truly may it be said, we have fallen upon evil times. Excuse this hasty scrawl and believe me yours. B. F. M. COL. MCCLURE, in his paper, the; Franklin Repository, continues to ad- j vocate his reform measures. He seems ; to have gone into the movement in earnest, and is urging it forward warm ly and with marked ability. He pro- I>oses to incorporate into the Constitu tion of the State substantially the fol- ; lowing provisions: 1. That the Senate shall consist of! one hundred members, to lie chosen by j single districts. 2. That the House of Representatives shall consist of four hundred members, each to be elected in a single district. 3. That all legislation relating to cor poration interests shall be by general laws, and that no special charters or corporate privileges whatever shall be granted but by the courts. 4. That there shall be no special ap propriation of money from the treasu ry to claims except upon a judicial find ing- 5. That the members of the Legisla ture shall be paid five dollars per day, .for the period of sixty days; and be prohibited from appropriatingto them selves any additional sum fov protract ed sessions, or for < xtra or adjourned sessions beyond sixty days in tlie year. G. That no subordinate officer shall be appointed in either branch, or re ceive any compensation for services, unless a bill shall have been passed by both branches creating the office and defining its duties. 7. That no bill of any kind shall pass either branch without receiving a ma jority of the whole vote on a call of the yeas and nays. We believe these propositions are in the tnain just and necessary; and that their adoption would purify, in some measure, at least, the polluted atmos phere even of a Radical legislature. But they cannot be adopted. Those who control Col. MoClure's party, are as he says himself, basely and shame lessly corrupt. It is not in their nature to do anything except to gratify their lust for power and fill their pockets with plunder. They have tasted blood and can not be driven from their prey until the people hurl them from power. We wish the Colonel success in his effort:- to reform the habits of these men. He has undertaken a work of great magnitude, and if he succeeds he will deserve the thanks of future gen erations. We are willing to give him credit for good faith in what he propo ses. But is it possible that such a par ty as 'lis will consumate the work in the same good faith. Under the pres ent Infamous apportionment of the State., any Convention that can be as sembled, will, like the Legislature, be three-fourths Radical. The voice of conservatism will be smothered. Col. McCl ure might perhaps wish this oth erwist but he will be powerless to pre vent it. Such a Convention is morally certain to forget McClure's propositions and c evote themselves to the task of striking the word white out of the Con stitute on and white-washing the negro generally. Such, we have no doubt, woulcl be the character of any Conven tion got together under the auspices of the present Legislature. But if they will give all parties equal and fair rep resentation, and submit the work of the Convention to the people for adoption or rejection we are willing to see the experiment tried. IMPEACHMENT, thus far, seems to have proved a failure. The committee having charge of this question, worked all last session at it, but found them selves unable, at the end, to make any definite report. They say, byway of covering up their failure, that "enough evidence has come to light to justify them in recommending the next House to continue the investigation." Truly the mountain groaned and brought forth a mouse. As soon as the new House was or ganized, the "sleepless Ashley" arose in his place and made a made a motion big with the fate of the nation. He repeated his tragic, '7 do impeach An drew Johnson, Ac.,"and closed by mo ving that the Judiciary Committee be instructed to continue the Impeach ment Investigation, lie madea speech, but as it is the same one he made last it will hardly he printed. The debate was lively. Judge Spalding (Radical) stigmatized the whole project as "consummate folly and it leaked out during the discussion, that other Radical members were of the same o pinion. They seem to have become disgusted both with the "sleepless Ashley" and his pet measure, and took this occasion to say so. Gen. Butler, however, and others of the same ilk, favored Impeachment at all hazards and whether there are any grounds or not. The President was handed over to the tender me*ey of the Judiciary Committee. The investigation will continue—not because any one serious ly thinks there is any ground for it, but to gratify partisan hate and fill the pockets of gold gamblers. Tun Radicals are having fine times in Tennessee. They hold the offices and the negroes do the voting. Whites who differ from these favored classes can do neither the one nor the other. HON. EDGAR CO WAX has again been nominated by the President as Minis ter to Anstria. The motion to confirm him, last session, having been laid on the table by a small majority. It is thought he will now be confirmed, and we believe his confirmation would be well received by the American people. His bold and manly course has made him hosts of friends among thinking men.of all parties; and his statesman ship erudition and unblemished char acter, point him out as the right man to be made Minister to Austria. It is a shame and disgrace to the coun try that mere partisan revenge should prevent the confirmation of Such a man as Edgar Cowan. WE invite our countrymen, says the National Intelligencer, to a strict scruti ny of the character of those men who clamor most violently for harsh meas ures to the South. They are, with rare exceptions, 'the fawning sycophants who have eulogized the South in the day of its power, or the fierce fanatics who have breathed vengeance and des truction for years, with a madman's fury, and more than a madman's folly. But the most truculent of to-day were the most servile of yesterday. The bul ly is uniformly a coward. The tyrant stripped of his power is ever a slave, for the man who would consent to im pose a lawless rule on another is one who has not the manhood heroically to resist it in his own person. CONGRESS will probably take a recess of several weeks before entering fully upon the duties of the session. The people will thank them for this and like them the better the longer they stay at home. Better far to pay them for stay ing at home than to keep them at Washington to agitate the country with their revolutionary schemes. HARItISBURG. The Railroad Dm ; Not so free a* it mi^ht be; C. A- S. I*. U. It.; Politics in the Legislature; Legislation for Bedford county, Ac., Ac. Correspondence of the Bedford Gazette. HARRISBUKG, March 11. MR. EDITOR:— The world moves and the legislature of our State with it. A "free railroad law" has just passed the Senate, that is a law which permits any seven persons to construct a railroad, provided ten thousand dollars of stock for every mile shall be subscribed and ten per cent, of such stock paid up, be fore application is made for permission to build ; provided, also, the parties interested become individually liable for all responsibilities. Some people, doubtless, consider this a free railroad law. For my own part, I can't exact ly see it in that light. I presume the House will also pass the bill and then we shall have railroads in abundance. Apropos of railroads, I have been in formed upon the best authority and in the most positive manner, that it is the intention of theConnellsvilleandSouth ern Pennsylvania Railroad company, to begin the construction of their road during the coming summer. lam in clined to think that there is some truth in this, and, therefore, counsel your people not to despair of this line of railroad so important to their interests. Since the passage of the Constitution al Amendment, political excitement

has been at an ebb in the L legislature. It was hardly worth while for the So lons of that body to waste so much breath upon the said Amendment, as the Radicals themselves have already repudiated it. It was intended to be a cheat and snare, and having served its turn, it is now cast off by those who used it, as a worn-out shoe. The Mili tary Reconstruction Bill, now general ly known as the Force Bill, recently passed by Congress, has taken its place, and hereafter all who would be in good standing in the Radical Church, must swear by that bill. Your readers will understand that it (the Force Bill) com pels the Southern States to adopt Ne gro Suffrage, or remain out of the Un ion and under the government of mil itary satraps. One of these inevitable propositions the South must accept. Are the "Republicans" of your county so attached to their party leaders that they will endorse indiscriminate* Ne gro Suffrage in the Southern States, on the one hand, or Disunion and Military Despotism oa the other? The people of Bedford county, I take it, irrespective of party, are too soundly patriotic, too conservative and magnanimous, to be lieve in such monstrosities as these. Even here the Force Bill of Congress causes wry faces among the Radicals. A distinguished Radical Senator, re marked, in my hearing, a few days since, that it was an outrage and he could not approve it. But I presume the petty leaders of the Radical party will swallow it, as they have swallow ed every other dose prescribed by the Congressional doctors. I only hope it will physic their party out of the coun try. I observe some legislation for your county, "An act to change the place of holding the election in Harrison tp., from the School House near George Elder's, to the house of Feiglit ner." (In such cases the court have ju risdiction, and the Legislature has 110 business to interfere). I also notice a bill to regulate the fees of the Poor Di riectors of your county. This last has passed the Senate. The Democracy of Harrisburg met on Saturday last to make their nomina tions. The nominees are good men, and the capital city will give us a grand victory 011 Friday next. LEX.

In private life Mr. Browne was a kind, genial gentleman, and his death will be sincerely mourned by his numerous friends and admirers in this country. NEWSPAPER SPONGES.—There are many people in the world who make it a business to sponge the reading of newspapers without any expense to themselves. This has often been no ticed and commented upon. They are not confined to any particular locality, but are found wherever the newspaper goes. An exchange from Maine thinks there are more of this class there than elsewhere, wliile the New Hampton Gazette believes the Granite State is in fested with them to even a greater de gree, and says it has known men of means to hang around a store where the proprietor takes a paper for the mere purpose of reading the paper, and getting the news without its costing them anything. There are scores of families whose parental heads spend enough in bad rum and tobacco weekly to pay for a dozen newspapers, and still persist in sponging what little in formation they get of what is going on in the world from their neighbor. Any man who can afford to indulge in rum, beet, cider or tobacco, can abundantly afford to'subscribe and pay for a news paper for the benefit of himself and fam ily. IViiian Excrement.
