The recent Virginia and Tennessee elections tell how true it la with refer ence to the South; while the triumph of concilia tion and compromise in the councils of the Re publican party of tbe .New York Legislature abow that auch la fast becoming the case at the North The New York Htrald't Albany correspondent explains the fact as follows: " As I have stated on former occasions, every thing is pointing to a complete remodeling of par ties 1 n this State Greeley and his friends to be at the head of tbe extreme and no conciliation re public* ns, whilst Tburlow Weed, carrying tbe oanner of compromise, will lend the conservative republicans Into a new or Union party, to be formed out of the moderate democrats and Union repubMcans. There are daily signs of tbe ap proach ot this event Not a day pas*:* but the political waves are adding material to that new combination: and von nwd not he anmrtard t? ?> in the next State canvass a radical democratic, a radical republican, and a Union or national party In the field steering betwe? n the two In time* of revolution and peril like the**, parties and <;cm blnatlona are formed rapidly. The nucleus of that party haa already lura formed; It la only necessary for coming events to cement the par ticles, and the driftwood floating upon tbe politi cal currents will then find a. lodging place and form a powerful party " Pee, also, the New York Tribune, for proof pos itive that It has throwa away tbe scabbard in Its war on the expected Union proclivities of tbe in coming Administration. Giowis# Dispbkatk?Yesterday we saw a private letter from a late Georgia member of Con gress, a rabid aeceeasionlst, in which the writer raved like a maniac over the impending reaction In the popular mind of tbe Gulf states. Mo bed lamite waa ever more furloua, incoherent and venemons In hla expressions cf hatred and raire He boldly intimated that the people were to be kept in subjection iu those States by a resort to the mod despotic means, ar i that it is the pur pose of those who have u? ..rped the government of those States and deprived their people <t Amer ican liberties, to make war on their foror er breth ren, as the best means of preventing the masses from stopping to reflect. His whole tetter was in fair keeping wltb the following brief extract from the Washington correspondence of the Charleston Afcrcury . 4' Washiswtos, Feb. 4, 18#1. 41 The border States will be 'placated,' and then your reconstructionists will begin howling for the Union a^ain. There's the danger The only hope now is in the smssbin^ up of toe Peace Congress and getting Virginia out." Apropos?They evidently look to Messrs Sned don, Brccktnbrough, and Tyler, of the Virginia delegation, to uxomplish this intended "smash ing up " Our opinion ia, however, that these gentlemen will decline to accommodate them.

Government purposes, and tbe transit of the mails of tbe United States across tbe Chirlqui Isthmus. According to tbe report of tbe Government's agents who investigated tbe subject, tbe contrac* is destloed to be of Immense value and impor tance to tbe Government In reducing its steam ship and mail expenses in that quarter; while car rying it out also bids fair to end In competition a greatly reduced rates In tbe buslnessof carrying passengers between our Atlantic and Pacific porta.

A complimen tary serenade was given to Hon. A H. Stephens, which brought him out in an eloquent speech. Messrs. Cbesnut and Keltt, of 8 C., Conrad, of La , and others spoke The demonstration is still propressing. A salute of one hundred guns was flred at Capitol hill this afternoon. Speech ( "Vice-Prssident" Stephen*. Montgomery, Feb. 10.?Mr. Stephens, last nijfht, In response to a complimentary serenade. Gentlemen and fellow citizens : For although we met here as strangers from different Independ ent States, we are once more citizens cf a eom moucountry. [Applause ]_ Allow me briefly and mcrreiy to eipress my unreigned tbanks for this compliment; but tbe state of my health and voice, and the night air, apart from other considera tions, prevent me from doing more This la not the time or place to discuss tbote great Questions which are now pressing upon our public coun cils, now In the process of formation It Is sufficient to say that this day a new Re public bas leen formed The "Confederate states of North America have been ushered into existence, and bike their place r.mong the nations of tbe earth. [Cheers.J Under a temporary or provisional government, It is true, but this will soon be followed by one of a permanent character; which, while it surrenders none .of our ancient rights and privileges, will secure, more perfectly, we trust, that peare, security, and domestic tran quility which should be the object of all govern ments [Applaust?]. What is to be the future of this new govern ment, the f?te of this new republic, wiil defend upon ourselves. Six States only at present constl lute It Hut tlx states a* yet appear in our con stellation Afore, we trust, will soon be added, and. by the time a permanent Constitution may hare been adopted, w??may have a number greater than the "original thirteen,'' with morethan three times their population, wealth and power. [\pj p ause ] NVith such a beginning the prospect of our fu ture presents strong hopts to patriots of the past of a prosperous career; but what the future will be,as 1 before remarked, depends upon ourselves, and those who may succeed us. Our republic, and all republics, to be permanent and prosper ous, must be sustained by virtue, Intelligence, Integrity, and patriotism. The people themselves are the corner stones upon which the tempi* of popular liberty must be constructed, to stand se curely and permanently. Resting ours upon these we need fear nothing from without or within. With a climate unsurpassed by any on earth, with staple productions which control the com merce of the world, with Institutions (so far as regards our organic and social policy) In strict rnnfnrmiiv In naturo nH k? n 4? ??.j v/ ?uv j? *? vi iuc \yicaiur, whether read iu the Mook of Inspiration or the great book of m in iff station! around ua, we have ail the natural elementa essential to the attain ment of the highest degree of power and glory. (Applause ] These Institution* have been much assailed It ii our mission to vindicate the great truth on whica they rest, and with them exhibit the high est type of civilization which it is possible for human society to reach. In doing this our policy should be marked by the desire to preserve and maintain peace with the State* and people. If it cannot be done, let not the fdu'.t lie at our door. While we should make aggressions on none, we should be prepared to repel those made by others, let them come from whatever quarter tbey may We ask of others simply that we be let alone, and permitted to look after our safety, security, and nappipeas in our own way, without molest tug ui Klvi"K uueiice ki oioer people L>et. tben, peace, fraternity, and liberal commercial relation* with all the world be our motto. (Cheer*.] With tbese principles?without envy toward* other States In the line of policy they may mark oat for themselves?we will invite them to generous ri valry In all that dtvelope* the highest of every nation. [Applause] And now, with the best wishes to you, gentle men, and success to our common governmentthls day announced, I bid you good night. As the speaker retired, three cheers were given for "Hon. A Stephens, of Georgia, the first Vice President of the Confederate State* of North America." S Q A li TIER'S RESTAURANT.
