It w difficult to predict what ia yet to oouic forth out of tho coaflieting ole menta at work in this country, and which manifeat themselves more partio ularly at the seat of Government. The Executive, having done all he could to check tho mischievous course of Cod gross, Los settled duwu to a masterly 1 inactivity in that respect, quietly wait ing to sec what will turn up. Tho So I . jitcWc Court having dared to decide against the constitutionality of Milita -1 ry Courts, and To*t Oaths, has drawn | down on itself the nmlcdictions of Rad icalism, and set Congress to work to circumvent it in some way. Tho |iro jeet for the impeachment of the Prosi • lent is being attended to by the Com diiiict} on the Judiciary; yet the belief is gaining ground that it will all end iu smoke, and that’ the mure prudent ol j the parly will get rid of the clamor for j iinpc&ehmcttt by directing their attcu- 1 i lion to the election of his succeaaor, the i time for which is rapidly approaching. lyast session, after long delay nnd j much contention, the Constitutional 1 Amendment, now before the State Leg ; islatures for adoption, was proposed as the Congressional plan of Reconstruc j tion. 'This seems likely to fail in con j sequence of ita rejection by the Southern | i State*. Neither is it popular with all j , the Radicals, as it leaves Negro Suffrage | | voluntary with the States, or only dc- j , privea them of r^resen tative power if j | they reject it. Various schemes have j j boon devised at the present session— : ; the chief of which in the plan to reduce the Rebel Slates to the condition of | Territories. This has called forth so j much division among tho faithful, that 1 the Committee on Reconstruction, of j which Thad. Stevens is Chairman, has | reported another plan to Congress, j which proposes to establish a military : despotism over each of the seceded * States. Wc are happy to learn that J this plan is likely to be rejected; and I we (rust that something more rea*ona- I bio may yet be expected of this Radical * Congress 1 ’TW arc indications in the South of j t disposition to offer some sort of com , premise. Many are willing that the t South should accept the Constitutional I Amendment if the more obnoxious pro | positions contained therein arc modified I f —particularly that part which dislVan- j \ ohites the leading men of the South. I who were not wornc than the majority \ I of their people, nnd whom they cannot j voluntarily agree to condemn. They j P we suppose, to lose the right of | j representing their colored population. 1 j rather than be kept eternally in bus [pease; and have reason to believe that it w tho mildest mode of enforcing negro suffrage the North will ever agree to. We believe all efforts of the South to ( compromise to be perfectly useless ut ’ present. Their true course is, to reject I any humiliating terms which (hey may | bi; usked to agree to, and leave them to pb^ 1 Imposed by the arbitrary power t suggests them. They should 'oopilnuc to profesa :ui arduut desire to j ( -iv:(i*ue their old places in tho Union 1 ( us <OOO as they can do so honorably, j and consider that it will not be long uu- \ ' til the public mind of the North will ' j discover who it ia that is keeping this j • Union divided, so long after it had been 1 \prriemd by the fortune of war. \oniination of .

A* the conflict botweeu the Presi dent and Congress approaches s crisis, tho Radicals are actively employing their old tricks to work up tho North ern mind, and to rekindle expiring ani mositica aud fears. They arc endeavor iug to rally tho Northern massoa against the President sod the Supremo (lonrt under the pretence that the. South is still, aa it suits them to stylo it, rcbel- J liuua and defiant, is ready for another war, aud is puslnug oft the President to inaugurate it, as scuu us his impeach ment and removal shall he attempted, so that they can fly to arms. Theta, is said to be some mysterious understand- Ing or league between tba President, the Northern Democrats and tlio -South The ffrnifit, nf jmsail the open uaVo. cate of ilbpesqHiucnt and talks uhoul "the .refractory Routl],.’ nnd its ‘defiant- rejection' of Uie Ceiistitutioual Amendment, and finds, iu a proposition of ut member of the Kentucky Senaje, (fill*. Helm,) i which lias hfeu rcjdcled,) to ra se Ml ny/'pif nit of, Kentucky iu fittorjf, to he subjeef atttTl times to the Ithll of Fresidcnt of the Lulled i States, alarming symptoms of revolu tion. Now we ahull not waste time and space ill argument, to prove that one Kentuckian is not the whole -South \Ve hope that the Country will under stand that without argument. The Iltrahl alludes to “the emphatic aud defiant tone” in which tho atneadiueut was rejected, “from Texas all the way !up to Virginia.” This is not true, and w ill not serve as a base for a new cru- I sadc. Texan was the only State that | rejected the amendment iu anything j like a spiteful spirit. The other Stales j simply did not ratify it. They used uo offensive language, and employed no j “defiant tone ” It was submitted to j them for ratification or rejection, which implied the power of choice, and, instead * of voting aye, they voted nay. This i. 1 construed by the llerahl os an evidence j of contumacy and disloyally. The South was nevermore tranquil than now. Nothing could be farther j from our thoughts or wishes than war. 1 Give ns but three things—repose, eapi- j tal and labor, and wc are willing, at least until the North recovers its right roa sou, to do without all others. If the t.'oasliluiiunai Amendment was intended 1 in the nature of au offer of conditional restoration, our rejection of it is a proof! that we arc not over anxious for admis.j sion and representation, LVo would • not purchase admission at the price of! dishonor. Ifitwcio not so designed,' then wo had uptjaiig to gain hy iti ami would bat e dishonored ourselves to on purpose, by a voluntary ratification of it. I f Congress, after our rejection of | j it, declare it to be a part of the Consti i lotion, wc must tale it to be so, and j submit accordingly, just .-is wo Jo now. I to taxaliuu without represeutatiou. ! | Should tho Supreme Court interpose, i ; and upon a case submitted decide that | it ia uota part of the Constitution, then j jwe suppose thut we will have to submit I Ito that decision. If Congress get into | a war with the Ihc. idem aud the 8u- , '< profile Court, we will, we confess, bo in I I a quandary. But we protest, bleeding ! \ as we are at every pore, against being I involved iu such a conflict. If turdi d I into it, we will have to follow the stars I and stripes—the flag of the Lnmn. if' | there should be two such Hags, j w.il . i have to decido the best way wc can. , j There are individuals m every ace j I and country w lie abhor repo.-o, and ilc i light in strife.

Ihcy are either | the result of ignorance, fear or partisan | malice. Whichever they bo, they are , stupidly false and grossly unjust. | [ it the Radical leado r s arc determined 1 10 brave war iu carrying out their pro ject of impeachment and removal* let I them do so openly, boldly, and honestly, i and not throw upon the quiet, unarmed , and unoffending .South tho blame that | attaches to so criminal a breach of tbs i national peace.

We clip lh<£A>llomug from the de bate in the House on Friday lost ou Mr Stevens new plan of military gov ernments for s oulh. Mr Hankow Massachusetts, appeal ed to Mr. Stevens not to propose a vote at this time. He believed a few days devoted to diffrassid£ would result in tho perfecting of a measure upon which Congress, the I'resident aud the people eon Id .agree. Mr Kldndgofcf Wisconsin'. appealed to M r r>serw not to preev this matter now. /I'hyr* n, r many eontleniau *rlio desired to plaeo themselves upon the record in opposition to the hilt. It was a very important measure and the de en e had no douhl (tone forth (hot the hill should pnsS, and this wontld he the only u|>|’ il.*tWafforded tor discussion Tho opposition aim ply asked the' pour boon ol being permuted to enter their protest against ih*.h(ll. ■ Mr. Stevens said he did not Ijart) the advantage of knowing what lud taken place u (he jKefc't negotiations between the President and the gentleman from j Massachusetts (Mr Banks) ts)n(iv to ' the prospect of harmony Between the Executive and Congress. If he had i been present at that negotiation he would he able to tell tho effect, and he j should then probably be glad to giro more time. The gentletuau from Wis consin (Mr. IJfdtglge) had said the de cree had gone forth that the bill must pass lie know of no aueh a decree, but he had seen enough, and had here tofore noticed sufficient demoraliialion in the majority to induce him to put aside all sanguine hopes that tho bill would pass.

Mr. Banks said he had had no nego- J itj l ti"n with the President of the United j j States, This measure, it is .well known, j depends (or its legal effect upon a two- j thirds powerofbolh ilousesol Congress, i and it was doubtful if that could be oh !

He . believed a measure to meet all demand.

Mr. Earle advocated his Amendment, and Warmly eulogized the character of , the l ate Chief Justice, lie said ho I wished to have the committee untram melled It might be dccmci) more ad visable, instead of erecting a monument over the remains of the deceased, to set | up a marble figure of the great man in j the Capitol grounds, where the same oould he seen; and prove a constatit re membrance of li/k great virtues Mr. Ilillingslea, tif Carroll comity, aid he did not’iibject W having n mon- I utncnl erected orcr the remain. of the | late Chief J uitiac, hut he was decided 1 I ly opposCffto sc 1 ifci* f}tatcJJuusC or la uierrufu.

He did not wtnt the pro posed monument erected in some out of tho way place, but ho wanted it brought before the public Kate, in order that the youth of Maryland may viait it os a shrine and learn to adiuiro aud emulate the virtues of the great mon. Mr. Hillingftlea wished to correct on impression which seemed to bavo been gathered from hia remarks on this measure He certainly did not mean to *ay that he did not respect ihc memory of the lute Chief Justice.

He warmly advocated the ill aud pronounced a glowing eulogium upon the Inu*Chief Justice Taney, and said that Maryland endorsed him as her representative man. The men of Mary land deal rod to erect a monument not alone to his private virtues, but to his professional fame. The Democratic par ly, he maintained, was not dead, never had boon dead, and never won d die.— Ue did not mean ihe Democratic party technically speaking, but he meant the Constitutional Democratic party, ou j which the old Whig element had been : ! engrailed.
