Mr. Gladstone recommended that the sec ond reading of the bill should pass unchallenged, but that If the clause embodying the principle of duality of voting was not abandoned, nnd difficulties as regards compound householders equitably adjusted, and If these concessions were not distinctly made in the Chancellor of the Ex chequer's epecch on the second leading, anoth er meeting of the liberal party should be con vened. and be would then propose that a cardinal vote eoouid be taken on tbe question that tbe Speaker dn leave chair In order to go Into com xnatee This, be evplalned, would have substan tially the same tS-ct as a vote against the second reading, while it would give the Government am pie opportunity for deciding whether they would insist on retaining the present objectionable pro visions o f the bilL Mr. Roconck said he should support the second reading, hat acquiesced in Mr. Gladstone's pro posal.

The IhiU UaU Gazette a;ya Mr. Gladstone al luded to a rumor that the Government intended to postpone going into committee on the bid to a inte penod. Hr. Gladstone said he intended very strongly to oppose that course. Tbe same paper says Hr. Bright's speech was very moderate in tone, and nc intimated a belief that be should hive no difficulty in backing tbe policy ot the liberals as a party.

Tbete Is a icportthia evening, which seems to be tolerably well authenticated, that the President has. by advice of the Attorney General, deter mined to Interfere with General Sheridan’s ad ministration of aSairs at New Orleans, and bis supersedere In command of District No. Four is even hinted. Johnson takes courage. The statement la general among Congresemeo remaining here to look after appointments that since the Connecticut election the President ap pears disposed to change bis policy and to leave ont Eepoblicans entirely. In a number of cases where vacancies had been promised to Repub licans, the names were withdrawn by Mr. John son to-day, and Congressmen were informed that they would rot be made. SENATE—EXECUTIVE BUSINESS. The Senate was u Executive session to-day for four hours. The nominations sent in were gen eially unimportant About twenty-tire revenue officers, fifty Postmasters, and one hundred mili tary brevets and promotions, nearly all cases sent In yesterday, were actca upon, A long time was spent ou Bradford,' as Sur veyor. Baltimore. The discussion was very animated. Mr. Chandler not only deecnnced Bradford, bnt sharply criticised his chief sup porter, Bevcrdy Johnson. He presented a protest from the Bepubllcan State Central Committee against Bradford, and brought up some ofSena lor Johnson’s speeches and letters of two or three years ago, charging that they had educated the people of Maryland into a disregard of their constitutional duties and the binding force of the test oath. The case was laid over till to-morrow. Boeecrans* case was reached, but postponed for further consideration, without debate. A debate occurred on a point of order relative to a construction of the rules, which came up ou certain Pennsylvania rejections made last Friday. Amotion to reconsider was entered on Saturday, just before adjournment, and the question was whether a reconsideration could be had at this session. After discussion, Mr. Wade decided in the negative. This settles about half a dozen cases. rum zxxjhozs collection dibuhct. The decision of Mr. Wade, Vice President pro iem, that tbe Senate cannot at this session recon sider confirmations and rejections of the last ses sion, though a motion to do so was made before adjournment or Saturday, disposes of the ques tion relative to ~e Collcctorship of the Fifth lll uols District, and the removal of Bryant and tbe confirmation of Kellogg therefore stands. Kel logg. Ingersoll ana their friends are in high glee over the result. a pzbst or atiul joke. As some of the newspapers appear to bo seriously discussing the question of bringing tbe constitu tionality of tbe Reconstruction Bill before the Supreme Court in the form of an Injunction against the District Commanders, it seems worth while to call attention to the fact that the sensa tional stories about the Southern Govemsrs were sent out on the first of April. It may be said, furtner.that no member of the Supreme Court, nobody at the White House, and none of the Senators whose names are mentioned in connec tion therewith. Lad seen or heard of such a peti tion, and no lawyer here admits for a moment teat such a case conld be brought before tbe Court. THE DISAPPOINTED AND DISCONSOLATE.

A SOUTHERN OPINION OP TRE PRESIDENT. Andrew Johnson’s Policy Reviewed by a Georgia Newspaper—A Rap at the Democratic Parly and Papers* [From the Macon (Oa.) Journal and Messenger, March 22.] Andrew Johnson has at last yielded. Thank God for it. He has done usanim mense deal of harm; crippled us when our armies were in the field; rejected the terms which Grant and Sherman gave ns, and then, at last, has kept sectional and animosity stirred up against us by his un whe course and his foolish conflict with Congress and Northern sentiment. And now wc hope President Johnson’s op* Eositionto the Government will cease. He as opposed it so long, and indneed onr peo ple to oppose it so long, holding ont to ns the false idea that he would do something for us, that ho has done us infinitely more harm than all other men and all other causes combined. Bat lor him we would long ago have been admitted Into the Union and upon far better terms than wc shall now be able to obtain. Be has been the moat effec tive enemy we have hud. In the first place, his inflncncc was great In arraying the border States against us. He was one of the most earnest supporters of the war waged upon ns. He refused us the terms given us by the generosity and mag nanlmlty of Grant and Sherman. And last, though not least, be has. by bis course, kept Northern prejudice ami hatred constantly excited against us. Save ns from onr friend Johnson 1 Commencing his official career as Vice President by an excessively post-prandlal speech—afterwards as President, Indulging in such spouting tirades to the populace of the Federal Capital as should not be used even upon the hustings—going upon his Western lour with an engine of vituperation, whose hose be kept turned back upon Con gress—he excited the frenzy of the Northern people against the Southerners, whose cause he professed to advocate. Had bo been our most hitter enemy, he could not have pur* sued a course calculated to do us more baim. Further than this, bis conduct has all along inspired the Southern people with the hope that be has intended to defend onr rights at the point of the bayonet. Andrew 11. was compared to Andrew I. Tennessee had given ns “Old Hickonr," who crushed nullification and “removed the deposits," and Tennessee, it was hoped, had given us Andrew IT., who would remove tho Radical Congress. Johnson was to he our Crcmwcll, who would disperse the Rump Parliament of America. In the meantime, though, with all h!s proclamations, he has never removed martial ‘.aw from the South, and never restored to onr people habeas corpus ; nor has he released Davis from Fortress Monroe. It Is difficult to determine whether Presi dent Johnson has exhibited the more politi cal peculation or the more political folly. HU course has certainly been good ground for inducing the Southern people to hope that he intended to wield tho support In their behalf. And we think .yet that there has been at some time such an idea lurking in his bosom. Bat he hesitated, he dallied, and proved himself a dastard; be doubted, and isdummd. Thank God for it. The spell is broken—the illusion is gone. Andrew 11. lacked the nerve to do what Andrew I. would have done. The Southern people are undeceived. Let them profit by their dear ly-bought experience. Our coble President, after bellowing in the cities of the West, like one of tie mad prai rie hulls of that great section, now “roars yon as gently os any socking dove." All the thunder which he ponred against Congress, from the Olympus of the White House,turns out to be Pickwickian thunder, go far as Congress Is concerned, but it has recoiled with deadly effect upon '‘the President’s Southern friends.” Andrew Johnson, In his veto of the Milita ry BUI, says this measure la “without prece dent, and without authority—in palpable conflict with the plainest provisions'of the Constitution, ana utterly destructive to those great principlesof liberty and human ity for which our ancestors on both sides of the Atlantic shed so much blood and ex pended so much treasure.” After painting the “absolute monarchy” and “military des potism” in each of the five districts defined by t tie Military Bill at the South, In such fearful colors as to make the blood curdle in the veins, and strike terror into the heart of

every man, woman and child, white or black, found living under those “despot isms”—after exciting the Southern people almost to acts of open rebellion against the provisions of the Military Act, he now turns round and telle ns be hopes this monstrous “Reconstruction Act” wUI have the effect of alleviating much of the bitter ness caused by tho war, and he “will faith fully execute” what he says is a subversion of the Government and Constitution, which he has token an oath to support and defend. And such is President Johnson—such the man who has lured us ou to our destruction. Let us have done with all this knavery and folly. TVc prefer trusting oar fate to open enemies to trusting It to false friends. We prefer old Ben. Wade, old Tbod. Stevens, and old Horace Greeley, to Johnson, of Ten nessee, and Johnson, of Maryland. True, the President has talked finely In our behalf, and so has the “little villain” of the Timet. But as Raymond has always voted against ns, so Johnson has at least not acted tor ns. Let him go his ways. The South can trust him no longer. IVe must lind other guaran tors for our safl-ty, and that safely wo must find with the Republican party, or not at all. President Johnson has no strength—moral, political, or physical. He represents noth ing, and he represents nobody. Let him go, like “the Coniedcrato note.” Representing Doming on God's earth now. And nnnebt in the water* below it. But we have to complain of the Democrat ic parly Nortla as much as wo complain ot President Johnson. Next to President John son, we owe all our present troubles to “the unto rifled”—"the fron-ribbed Democracy.” In the first place the Northern Democrats al ways agreed with us in onr Ideas concerning secession, and often encouraged us to exer cise our right. Many of them declared that the South could be coerced only over their dead bodies. And it was so, but not in the sense in which they intended ns to under stand their declaration. The South was co erced over some of their dead bodies, bat they had enough living bodies left to enforce the coercion. Since the war the Northern Democratic jonrnais have continually fed us on the false hope that the Democracy, in conjunction with Picsident Johnson, would give us our rights, ifnecd be, with the bayonet. Wit ness the more ultra Democratic journals, the Day Dock, Metropolitan JReeord , Freeman’s Journal , and Daily Fetes, and the more mode rate journal, the New York World. “Outon such friends”—friends who en courage us to get Into trouble, and then whip us for doing what they told us to do. Senator Sherman declared that If the Southern people complained that the mili tary act was harsh, they had their Northern Democratic friends to thank for It, since they had voted down an amendment, which was quite a mitigation of the severity of the orig inal bill.- - Tins is so, and we have a good many other tilings to thank our Northern Democratic iriends for. We have to thank them that they encouraged us to secede, and then whip ped ns for doing so. We have to thank them that since the cessation of the war they have again fed ns upon false hopes. Wo have to thank them for keeping up tlie exasperation of the Northern people against us. Some Republican remarked in Congress that the more Democrats resisted Republi can policy, the more decided and emphatic that policy Would become. Brooks, of New York, a recent convert to Democracy, an swered lhat this might be true, bnt the Democrats would continue to resist. Bully lor Mr. Brooks I Living in a “ loyal ” State, as he docs, It costs him nothing to “ resist;” hut his iniquities arc to be visited upon the Southern people. He can pursue his parti san policy with impunity, but the South is to be made the victim. Party tactics make it necessary lor the Democratic Congress to defeat, if possible, such a thing as Blaine’s amendment, and to oppose Republican policy generally. In the meantime the most vital interest of the Southern people is the plaything of the politicians, the shuttlecock that is tossed back and forth between the battledores of the two opposing factions, the football that is kicked aoout by two hos tile parties, the unhappy grist that is croand between the upper ana nether mllstoncs. Of this wc are tired in the superlative* dc. gree. President Johnson has tried to “re construct” us. has moat signally tailed, ac knowledged bis defeat, and surrendered at discretion. The “little villain” of the New Tord Tinifi, and men of his like, calibre, and kidney, with their milk and cider policy, have also tried and failed. The Northern Democracy have lent a helping hand wher ever failure has been certain to bo the result; and now the exigency demands new men, new measures, and a new policy. Hen who formerly led at the South are not up to the demands of the crisis, Wo need an Infusion of new and vigorous young blood into the veins of onr government policy—blood that has been generated under the present cir cumstances--our immediate earroundlngs. The old fogy politicians and fossil remains of the antiquated press are not capable of ap preciating our present position. Nourished in their InfaiJby and fed in their prime npon Ideas which have been forever destroyed, they are starving in their old age, by en deavoring to live upon the shadows that yet befotad the •substance which has eluded their grasp. Prussia’* Designs mtlie Netherlands. IFrom tbe Pall Mall Gazette, March 20.] Tbe apprehensions ot the Datch in regard to tbo supposed aggressive designs of Prus sia have not yet subsided, in spite of official 'explanations and contradictions. The news papers reflect the popular feeling of patriotic alarm.

Thousands of gu elders are presented by private citizens to -a hind which has been established for far nUhingthc volunteers with rifles and unl fonhs.

John Morrissey In a Dilemma* The friends of Joo Coburn and John C. Heenan are said to be anxious to match them for a prize fight for SIO,OOO a side and tho champion’s belt. There most bo some mis take in this, however; John Morrissey is champion of America. He whipped Hcc nan, and Is now the rightful owner of the belt. If Coburn or Heenan desires to win the championship they must first challenge John Morrissey, when he will be compelled to fight or yield up tho belt to his challen ger, according to the rules of the prize ring.
