Jbe text was, accordingly, treated as as ruling the doctrine of the sovereignty of Godin Irovtdence; not simply Providence In general, ! bnt the supreme and absolute aovcrebmtv of God therein. “He docth accordhuj to Pit trill in luc army of Heaven, and among the inhabitant* of the earth.” , A,te j-peaklrg of the general dorlnac of Provt u aome sense or another, a necessary result fieia any right recognition of the very be *: ibatonly an atheist could consist cttlyo-ny a Providence, the preacher proceeded V* ‘;H CQIS the general theme under the following biTiriont of argument: I-That plainly, the universe, alike the Intelli gent and the uni. (elligvnt universe, most have anch a sovereign in the domain of Providence as we claim that God is. In order, even, to Ua preser vation, aud also in onlcr to the harmony or its in finite operations, the fulfilment of Its mighty des tiny. vlie physical universe cannot be supposed lo be --elf-sustaining. When any mind would rest onany such theory a» that, even the Immense sys tem of things move*, on in nil this beantilni har mouy which «e see purely through the efficiency ?v«w >e '* w * and tendencies 'thick God has es tablished in it. The notion remains unsupported by any fact, great or small, within the range of man knowledge, however acquired. The one perfect guarantee, wo have that the universe of woilds will not *ome day tali into confusion and utter wreck la the ftict of a Divine omnipresence • and omnipotence everywhere experienced, every- * where felt, to as that the whole system cannot but more obedient to the volition of one supreme Mind. In like manner, all ulti mate wcll-helng in the universe of intuit- Bence is guaranteed by the fac of God’s sot- ■ *™fffily over all beings, causes and tendencies. ext, it was observed that the sovereignty ol Godin Providencebthe necessary concomitant of His sovereignty in the moral universe. God’s bjjsbly providence serv. e a.- too instrument alike ; of tils justice snd His grace. When Jerusalem. : In the reign of Uezeklah, vva* threatened by the ' fierce Assyrian army that lay encamped in full Eight from the city wall, Jehovah eeul this word to the pious Kirg by the hand of Isaiah; “twill defend this city to save it. tor mine own sake, and _ for my servant David's sake.” Jerusalem and w Judah had not yet fulfilled their rohson. These were the grand aims of God’s moral and spiritual kingdom yet to be accomplished through them, bo H.s Providence defended them; and that same night came down that awful ruin on the Assyrian camp, in which a hundred and four score and five thousand men perished. “ Like the leaves ot the forest, when autumn hath blown. That host, on the morrow, lay withered and strewn.” ••••••• “And the might of the Gentile, unsmote by the sword. Had melted like scow In the glance of the Lord.” It is as Sovereign of the moral universe that God rules over all; and universal nature, the whole order and system of things, own* the same sway, usd 1- the machinery hr which be works. 11L In the next place it •a? argued that the sov ereignly of God in Providence I* illustrate 1 in the wboje coarse of human lu-tory. Instances were cited to show npou what apparently trivial special caures Uie greatest i-vc"b hinge. Two theories Were suggested, according to .• hich these remark able developments—with which, in Cart, history is full, may b** accounted for. One is that they are pore fortuities. Adopting thu theory, we make all history * record ol unaccountable prodigies. We have, also, the mightiest and mort momentous effect? without the alignment of any adequate cau-cs.

A Democratic Hullabaloo in Michigan. The Democracy Coming Out Tor Negro Suffrage, nnd tue Detroit Free Free* to Lead Ofl*. [Correspondence of (be Chicago Tribune.} Detroit, November S!i, ISGO. Tour correspondent, who waa too fre quently compelled to neglect the Tridcnb, bclorc the election, by tbc pressure of busi ness, and who has since then been ill so as to cause more neglect, seizes upon the opportu nity afforded by this holiday to lay before you the particulars of the greatest political joke, and most astounding political revela tion known In the history of parties. .. The Democratic pajly of Michigan Is about to come out strong, rabid and radical. In favor of universal manhood suffrage! The Detroit Free Frem, which bus been even more ferociously anti-negro, and more stub bornly prejudiced against negro voting than the Chicago Times , is going to lead In the movement t Now, do not Imagine that the devil lias been converted. Not by any means. lie is sick ; and, therefore, would become a monk. Only, when he gets well, if ever, the monk’s cowl, like tbc shirt ofNessus upon Hercules, will slick to him. and cannot be pulled off again. For the Democratic parly in Mich igan, and especially the Democratic State organ, roust speedily make a choice between negro suffrage and death ; and Ihc organ has already intimated that it will not choose death, and will choose negro suffrage. The joke Is all the more huge and ridiculous be cause when the Chicago Time* first turned its remarkable flip-flap, and came out iu favor of negro suffrage, the Detroit Free Frets, not beign sharp enough lo sec where it until soon stand or die, biller! v denounced the movement ot the Tunes us an utter de sertion of Democratic principle?. The Times, possible seeing the corner into which tho Free Frets was rapidly drifting, retorted by styling the Detroit organ “the owl of the press,” which bird, as it well knows, cuunot sec au Inch beyond i:s beak in broad day light, and is only fit lo hunt food and smell game after dark, while given to indulging in dismal and altogether unat tractive melody.” In a short time the Time* will have the satisfaction of seeing the Free Frees ont-Storeyiug Storey in favor of un qualified and universal negro suffrage, in Michigan, at leas:, and, by info ence and ex ample, recommending universal suffrage everywhere. This Is the way of It; The people of Michi gan have voted, by an overwhelming ma jority, In favor of a Constitutional Couvcn lion, to reconstruct the Constitution of the Slate of Michigan. This Convention will be held next summer, it is certain that this Convention will he largely Republican, If the parlies remain divided upon present issues; and sure of containing allepublican majority at all events. The only hope for the Demo -1 cratic party to obtain even a fiilr show in the Convention lies in that parly joining Is sue upon a platform more in accordance with the overwhelming radical sentiment of the State than the position occupied by th.c Re publicans. Moreover, that Convention will take up and settle Lite question of suffrage In this Slate, and will inevitably introduce Impartial suffrage Into tho new Constitu tion. Now a formidable portion of the Republi can party ot Michigan has long been in favor oflmjiartial suffrage iu this Slate based npou the test ol intelligence. There Is, and will he, a strong clement iu favor of exclu ding Ignorance, vice andpanperism from the ballot box, and the remainder of the Repub lican party Is unanimously in favor of exclu ding disloyalty from the ballot box. With in the Republican party, therefore, the question will be whether all loyal men shall be voters, or whether onlv all loyal men who can read and wrltp, who* have never been convicted of crime, and who arc not pau pers, shall vote. It cither of these tests arc applied It wifi greatly injure the Democratic parly. That parly cannot bear the disfran chisement of its ignorant, IU criminal, or Its disloyal voters—the latter including deserters, draft-sneaks, and all who have favored secession In any tangible manner. Either test would ruin the Democratic party past redemption. Therefore the Democratic partv of Michigan ' will be forced to denounce nil restrictions upon the ballot, and to advocate with all its strength unqualified and unrestricted man hood suffrage, including, ns a matter of tin avoidable necessity, negroes of all shades, r The conclusion Is Inevitable, and neither to bo dodged or passed over In silence, or hand led gingerly. The dire necessities of this party will compel an outspoken, a load and intense discussion of the Issno. And the Republican tactics will be so shaped as to • enforce a complete showing of hands ami an open, irrevocable, notorious showing up. and showing down, and exposure all around of the future Democratic platform upon this question. The agitation in the Democratic party ha? already begun. The Free Freu has had its eyes opened a little by the stormy discus sion that has arisen among its party mana gcre. It Is relucllauUy, and with mauv a heavy and lugubrious sigh, taking the back track. It approaches the inevitable like sweet Kathleen Bawn, “ with a smile i on its lip but a tear in Us eye.” It has al ready declared qualified suffrage a humbug ; and that any qualification wifi disfranchipc while men; which is not to be endured. It J asserts that, If the change must conic, nni j vcrsal suffrage is inevitable. If vou can imagine one of the evil spirits In a tight cor r Her, compelled to repeat the Lord’s prayer, i nnd trembling with apprehension with each faltering syllable at the probable result of the experiment, and expecting the holy spell ‘ would crash him, tn— Siu“cr * *ea change Into something rich and strange,” 1 a something which ho particularly don’t i want lo be, you can Imagine tho mingled dis gust, apprehension, anxiety, despair and ex i>ectatiou with whlclrthe party and Us organ 1 launch their canoes upon the swollen Radi- L cal current of equal rights irrespective of race, and how gingerly and with many a groan they jiaddleaway from the submerged 1 little island of a “white man’s government,” where they have so long encamped and laughed at the slowly rising waters. The Free First ha*s been savagely pricked forward, moreover, by the following card, published in the Chicago Times, and signed by two of the shrewdest and most Influential Democratic leaders of Western Michigan; . _ _ “loxia, Mich.,NovemberßX “To the Edltoroftbc limes: “ We have read year articles on negro safiVace, acd approve of them.

PIAWCaABO.” If these two old and truly Copperhead [ leaders thus speak out, there are a hundred other* who think the same, but have not yet publicly spoken. When U Is considered how great a revoln t tion in the Democratic partv of Michigan | this will l*c, and how deep-rooted, how long [ cultivated the prejudices of its masses are, , and how Us leaders have not only got to i shallow themselves, and turn wrong side • out, hut have got to convert all their ’ follower*, to whom thev have so i P>cached precisely the opposite doctrine, nnd how skillfully the conversion must be . nwnaced, lest the converts be too thoroughly • radicalized and converted dear over to Re • pubacanlsm, it Is seen at a glance the nccos i sitv of beginning In season the gigantic dlf •• Unities of the distasteful task, and the huge | proportions of the great political joke which s has been ployed upon the Democratic party t of Michigan. No wonder “the owl of the press ” begins lo roost nneasllv on Us perch. I Bjlfthc Liglslalnre of New York ehall de clare, os it probably will, that the propo?l --* tfon for a Mate Constitutional Convention Is carried in tbat Stale, and ehall order a Con ! ventlon, the New York llorM will be in the , same fix as the Free Press of this State.

THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMEND -1 KENT. r Tlireonmrtb of the Loral States Com -1 detent to Ratify It -8 JTrora the New York Herald, Nov. 27.) I rom emphatic and decisive popular s endorsements which the reconstruction plan » of Congress has received In all the recent •- State elections from Maine to Oregon the \ opinion prevails that soon after the reas i tumbling of the Congress thus endorsed i summary measures will be adopted by . the two houses to bring the South ern difficulty to a speedy and decisive J solution. This opinion wc believe to be well * founded, and from certain information which * has lately come Into onr possession, wc I think tbc Initial point of a new line of action . has been discovered, whereby this whole s question may be (substantially settled before f the adjournment on the 4th of .March next, s and settled ujxm the basis of the pending * Constitutional Amendment. ? The key which unlocks this difficulty anl all Us complications Is this:—that three* fourths of the loyal States, or the States represented in Congress, are competent not only to carry on the government, bat to change the organic law of the government. Why not ? The federal constitution pro vides that “the Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem It neces sary, shall propose amendments to this con stitution, or, on the application of the legis latures ol two-thirds of the several Slates, shall call a convention for proposing amend ments, whTch, In either cose, shall be valid to all Intents kml purposes as part of this consti tution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three-fourths of the several States or by con ventions In three-fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification mavbepro posed by tbeCongrees.” Kow.actlng upon the letter of the Constitution and apoottbo theory that the lately Insurgent States were restored to their constitutional relations in the Govern ment with their compulsory ratification of the amendment abolishing slavery under the President’s experimental efforts at recon struction, the Secretary of State when a suf ficient number of Southern States had joined in the ratification to make up three-fourths, or twenty-seven, of the whole nnmlier of the States of the Union, proclaimed said amendment part and parcel of the Consti tution. Thus from the Executive Department the doctrine was officially promulgated that the insurgent Stales, in accepting the Presi dent’s conditions of reconstruction, were re stored to their voices in the Government. But. I>y the Constitution, and os pleaded by the President himself in the outset to several of his provincial Governors, all his proceed ings in the way of Southern recon stinctlon and restoration were ouly provisional, and were subject to approval* or rejection by Congress. We see that the President had shifted his ground with this aforesaid proclamation from the Slate Department; but this did not change the fact that unless accepted by Congress all his proceedings and proclamations in this busi ness must go for nothing. That proclama tion, nevertheless to far established the idea that three-fourths of all the States, inside and outride, are necessary to effect a ratifi cation of a constitutional amendment as to lead to the endless embarrassments and etui litigations m regard to the status of the out side States. It was perhaps as much as' Congress could do at the last t-ession to avoid committing itself to the ratification policy of the Execu tive ; but now the two houses have the au thority from the }>ooplc of the loyal States to take decisive groundsagainsl it. The law and the logic'of the matter may be brieflv stated. As the outride States were dlsableU by a regular rebellion, In which they cat themselves loose from the government and combined In arms to overthrow it, they cannot be reinstated except by Con gress, and are now really in the condition of unorganized territories, not having even the tight to a voice in the national councils, which is possessed by Montana or Utah. Yet agaiu, as the National Government, os now represented by the constitutional quo rum in both Houses of Congress, is valid to all intentsand purposes, the States thus rep resented and thus making lawsfor the whole Union, we repeat, ore competent to change the organic law of the Union itself. In a word, the States represented in the Govern ment are, in law, the United States. Other wise all our federal legislation of the last five years is nail and void. Divested of petty technicalities, quirks and quibbles, it fa thus apparent that threxs fourths of the Slates now represented in Con gress are comjietent to make the pending constitutional amendment part and pared of the Constitution, the supreme law alike to thecuteibcandthc inside States and Terri tories. This Is the conclusion which, wc understand, will be acted upon bv Congress. When threc-fourtbs, or twenty-one, of the twenty-six States now represented in Congress shall have ratified the amendment, the Secretary of Slate will be required, by an act of Congress, If necessary, to proclaim the ratification complete. Then, while the ratification may he held as the con dition of Southern restoration, the amend ment consummated will still be binding uj-on them os the supreme law of the land, and Congress may enforce it from Virginia to Texas by “appropriate legislation” as In the territories. This i* the solution which awaits the ex cluded Slates. It I? a solution perfectly con sistent whh the right* and powers assumed by the loyal States in suppressing the rebel lion of the late so-cullcd Confederate States, and with all the legislation of Congress since the first bombardment of Fort Sumter. The only que-tiou there fore remaining to the excluded States is whether they will make a virtue of necessity and come forward to the ratifica tion In order to participate In the Presiden tial contest of or remain outside lo be subjected to the terms of the amendment by the action of the loyal Stales and of Congress.

A foreign < ousnl petitioning for administration baa no standing in Court A^.PP 11 l on ° r toe Conrt was as follows; " BnrnlJ, a Britleh subject, died at Chi cago.

Inorilerto properly determine this cs<c It will he ner'rgj.r.ry ta understand the duties of a consul in regard to the settlement of an estate, where the panic* interested are enbjecfs of the govern ment Irom which he I* sent and the e?tatc iu the country to which he is sent; and and also lo ex amine the statute of this State in regard to lha appointment of administrators. It i? the duty of a consul to look after the In icrcsts of tho subjects of hit own government in the foreign govern unmeet to which he is sent; and, when called upon, (0 aid. with all hi? power, such subject* in frtffpe their legal right*, and when property Is left In such foreign country, belonging to such fore rn subject*, with no one to look alter it. It then becomes hi* duty to see that It Is properly cared for, solar a* permitted by tho local law, acd tuact for the time bring «* the national agent or attorney of anch absent snbicct*. According to the general law of nations It b not the duty of a consul In case of the death of asub jert of ms Government in the foreign country to which he b sent, leaving petaonal asset* in eneh country, lo do more than he can a* consul nndcr the local law. and whatever be doe* In the premi se? must be done by virtue of hi* office as consul, and noi as on officer oi a foreign probata court. In the absence of au express statute confirming the power, whenever a consul seek* to become an administrator ana an officer of a conrt of a foreign Government, he lowers the dignity of hb office and Government, and is acting out of tbc line of bis duty. It being hi* doty to watch over the interest* or the absent heirs of the deceased who are subject* of hb own Govern ment, ana when administration Is necessary, not totakelihtmscllbnttoald the administrator of tie foreign court to do bis duty. Can It be claim ed that the Court anould appoint the Briliah Con sul adirinlstrator to-day and when if to-morrow n< should tail to perform hb dalv the Conrt shonld order him lo proceed and upon hb refusal, au or der to show cause why he should not be attached should be entered, be would haw the right to ccmc Jn and say, “1 am Her Brlttanlc M?je?iyV Consul at Chlcagp, llllaoi-. and von have no or power fo order me to do anything—you cannot attach me. 1 defy the Probate Court* of America to deal wnh me.” An administrator should never be appointed who cannot be made to feel the power of the court tbat appoint* him, for wilful rcclcct of bb duty. - We have tho# tar spoken of the duties of a Con sul. In general, coder the law* of nations, without repaid to ibe act* of Congress, Ibe acts of Parlia ment, or the decision* of the English court*, ibe act of Congre*# on the powers of Consuls, passed KW, provides that when the law* of the country permit, it shall he Ihe duty of Consuls to take possession of the'pcrsonal estate left by any citizen of the United states who ehall die within their consulate, leaving Ihn* no legal representa tive, partner tn trade, or trustee, by him appoint ed, to take charge of hb effefts, collect the debts dne to the deceased in Ihe country where he died, and nav the debt* dne from his estate which he stall then bare contracted, and at the expiration of one year from hb decease shall transmit the residue to the Treasury of the United Stalra.

By the act of August, 1536. it Is provided, tbat It snail be tbc duty of Consuls, so tar as the laws of the country will permit, to pro tect the property of the deceased from any Inter ference of the local authorities of the country where such citizen ehall die (as to the power* uf Consuls under thb aci. see the Vriy able opinion given by Attorney General Cushing. Till vni Opinion?, pp. 2i2.) Urder the act of iTVJ cited above. Colonel AspinwalL the American Cccsnl General, applied to the English Ecclesbs cal Court Bo be appointed administrator on the cFtateof John Hammond, a citizen of the United htalca, wbr> died in England leaving personal asset* there. In delivering the opinion of the court Sir tier l>ort Jtnntrstid “it appear? that on the death of Mr. Hammond, Colonel Asplnwall, the American consul In this country, took possession of the pro perty about him, paid bb funeral ana otaer cx p< nscs, bnt upon application to Messrs. Baring A Co., they declined tn pay over Uie money In tbelr bands until Idlers of administration were taken out, and ibey could obtain valid discharge. I am not aware •of any case in which it has been held that by the law of this couutry.it 1? tomnetett to a foreign consul to take possession oi the property of a foreigner d} lug here In ttlnti e, domiciled in Us own coun try. is it then tbc law and practice of thb Conrt that such an administration should be granted? 1 not, acd that the Crown Is the patty to see that Uie property of any person oviiitr in it? dominion? gets into proper bands, it ha* been raid by the law ol the D.

But this b tot by the law of nations, but by custom or express enactment, and U not a law which this country ia bound to follow. This country has not adopted the principle of reciprocity In thb re spect. lam of opinion that there Is not sufficient evidence to ehowthat the admlnia’ratlon ought to be granted, as prayed, to Col. Asplnwall. and 1 re ject bis petlUon. No claim Is made by the crown, (Asplnwall vs. The Queen’s Proctor, 2 Cnilb* Eecl.il, 513.) The following authorities sustain the doctrine u? laid down in the above case: 1 Addams Reel. R. Mu, in the goods of I’clcr R.

R_ ISO; Feme vs. Public Administrator, 3 Brad.Sur. The Britisb .bialotc in regard to the right of foreign cotirals to administer anon the estate* of subjects of their Government dying In England Is as follows: •‘See. L Whenever a convention tball be made between her Majesty and any foreign State, whereby her Majesty’s consuls or rice consuls in euca foreign State shall receive the same or the like powers and authorities as are hereinafter expressed. It shall be lawful for her majesty ny enter in coun cil to direct, and from and filler the publication of such order in the London Gazette, it shall be and is hereby tnacted. that whenever any subject of each foreign Stale shall dlvmthia the domi nions of her majcety. and there shall be no person present at the time of such death, who than be rightfully entitled to admims'crto the estate of each deceased person, li shall be law ful for the consul, vice-consul or consular a rent of such foreign state within that part of her majesty's dominions where each foreign subject shall die, to take possession and have the custody of the personal property of the deceased, and 'to apply the same in payment of bis or her debts and funeral expenses, and to retain the surplus for the benefit of the persons entitled thereto ; but sneb Consul, Tice Consul, or Consular agent shall tmmenlaiely apply for, and bo entitled to obtain from the proper court, letters of administration of the effects of such de ceased person, limited In each manner and for such time a* to such court shall seem fit” - The power to say who shall administer apon the estate of a British subject found la onr Slate, Is cot in the British Government nor In Congress. In fact Congress has no constitutional power to say who shall be an administrator In such a case, nor to enter into a valid convention with Her Brittsnic Majesty for the purpose of providing for the ap pointment of her Consols as administrators by our Probate Courts It l« a power vested ex clusively to (bo people of the State of Illinois, and the people have through their legislature pro vided that hi case a non-resident dl f, and leaves estate in this State, and no next of kin, or credit ors, that the public administrator anal) be ap- £ ointed administrator of each estate, and aving said nothing of the British Consul, or ary other Consul, 1 agree (ally with the English Court, that this State “ha* not adopted the principle of reciprocity in this respect,” and that to appoint the British con sul would be against the policy of onr State gov ernment, and It* express statute that until the Legislature shall provide otherwise, in case of the death of any non-resident leaving property, hut no relatives or creditors la this StMC, the public administrator “Is tho party to ace that such prop erty gel* Into proper bonds.” The petition of the acting British Consul is, therefore, dismissed at his cost, aud administra tion granted to the public administrator. FINANCIAL AND’COMHERCIAL. nONETABV, F lunar Evzsino, November 33. It arotber column will he found a synopsis of the forthcoming report of the Secretary of the Trcasnty to be presented to Congress on Monday next, in which Is given an interesting return* of the doings of the Treasury Department daring the past year. These Diets have from -time to time been given to the public, and need no repetition here. The synopsis gives very little Information a* to what the Secretary proposes to do. Ue enunciates no sew policy, ard merely reiterates the views ex pressed in bis last report. Considerable stress is laid on the proprlcrty of Congress authorizing a long five per cent bond, tree from taxation, into which the short obligations of the Government may »c converted at maturity. Congress will also be urged to adopt some fixed policy of contraction which will cause the commerce of the country tq gravitate to a specie basis, bat the telegram done not announce any suggestions In thiswise. The Secretary does not specify.any set time for the resumption of specie payments, hot believes that It can be attained whenever two hundred millions of the “greenbacks” shall hare been retired. At the present rate of contraction this will occupy about fonj years. The Secretary intends to cling to the eonnd, yet simple, policy of liquidating indebtedness of the nation, by keeping the*expenses of the Government as Car below the public revenue as possible. Accompanying tbo report Is a bill prepared by Commissioner Wells, relative to the redaction and equalisation of the Internal revenue taxes, and corresponding changes in the larifl. This bill will be eagerly looked (or, and no doubt will be closely criti cised, as the people at large are directly interest ed in the Internal revenue taxes, many of which are nneqnal and burdensome. Ihe volume of business at the banka was very light, and some of the discount houses reported the market very doll. Money remains easy, and unexceptional paper is readily discounted at 10 per cent.
