They may not expect the representatives of the victors in the la*e war to rehabilitate in tbe Union with 1 unimpaired rights, communities who manifest ' to rough their press all the bnsti iity to it that was considered praisew< rthy in the South timid the late clash of army. The truth is, the ; press of the South, with exceptions here and there, continue to be under the control of its j -ecession leaders. These latter inspire its sen- \ 'iments. One of these Richmond journals ot tha day denied that those leaders were inter- ' tering at tbis tune in public affairs. Yet every den upon the condition of the times published in that city on that day. was but an emanation Horn their animosity, their hatred and their general bitterness of feeling against those to ' whom they attribute the fa>|lire of their offms ' to destroy the Union? the "Yankees" aud tbe 1 ' negroes." The North is not so btind a> tha' it j >ioee not tee clearly that there can be no -incere peace ana general prosperity for tbe whole | country, with the South left under the mtellec- j con-roi of those who yet inspire the only teachers of their popular mmd?the Southern pr?ss>. The South, always lamentably defi. cient in ordinary schools, has fewer of them now :hau e\er before, and thus relies almost w holly on ber press for the diffusion of thought among her people. Tlia' is conducted perhaps with more ability and earnestness I than ever before Hut iis intensity has, under 1 the inspiration of apparent devotion to "the ' lort cause," taken a direction that bids fair to j destroy thejjevrf cause: that of saving as much j as possible t ut of tbe wreck of Southern affairs j lor ibe benefit of her present generation of 1 inhabitants, white and black. Tbe hope of re- ' tstablishing her former governing influences intact in ber midst, is at the bottom of the i general Southern-newspaper inculcation of ! ha*red to the ? Yankee 1 and bitter hostility to the negro. That hope is generated by tbe hoi- j low professions and promises of copperhead ! newspapers here and elsewhere, that did their j best to make tbe defeated rebellion victorious i Jt is high time that the South learned how little reliance ^he can place upon the integrity of their counsel, as npon tbe possibility that she will be permitted to play successfully- tbe role of tbe Jacobite, in the near future of American affairs. It is now evident that those I who have tbe power to shape her destiny intend j to systematize some plan by which, at any cost I and hazard to her contumacious ruling spirit* i or influences, she will not long hence be made i homogenous to the rest of the Union. The 1 proposed amendment to the Constitution bids j :air to bo declared "carried" by Congress. 1 Whenever twenty-one States may sanction ,t. That action will probably be followed by the enii.'ment ot hills remitting the States lately in ieb*H'on to a territorial conditiou, i with laws enacted by Congress for their gov- ! eminent, under which none shall be allowed to participate in tbe right of citizenship for the time being, who voluntarily took part In the rebellion. The voter* of tbe South under this state of things wiU not be long in prestdtiug i their several States to Congress for readmis- ! sion to equality in the Union, with State constitutions entirely acceptable to that body. Thus- ! one by one, they bid fai. to be brought back into the I'nion, very much as that was done in the ca?eof Tennessee. That i?. with changes ! in their organic laws, made without the sanction of the mass of their people; with Representati vet. Governors, legislators, and all other public functionaries arrayed in bitter hostility to three-fourths of those .-nrroundiag them but so backed up by the power of the Geuerai Government (Which, owing to tbe turn things have taken, is neither more nor less, practically. than Congress) as that there can be no ! question of the triumph of the plan by which these mutations are sought to be wrought in tbe affairs of the South. That ail this is revolutionary. we know well. That it will work additional sacrifices on the part or many deserving people of the South, we know equally well Yet it is but the natural and apparently inevitable result of the purpose ot the secession leaders to flgbt out to the bitter end their claim to tbe right to continue to direct matters at home Whatever it may cost the people of the South, we do not believe it can posvibly cost the country at large as much in the end. as would the success of 4bose whose local ascendancy there it is designed to overthrow. T he ease and speed with wbich it has been accomplished in Tennessee, prove with what facility it is destined to be achieved, wherever the majority of the people of a Southern State elect to continue to endeavor to thwart the determine'ion of Congress that there shall be bimcgeneiiy throughout tbe land, to the end ot guarding against the possibility of three urrence of so costly and so causeless a ci\ il war in the I uited Sta eo; and also u? che eyl of repairing the devastations and other damages of that war in the shortest possible time V>r know It will be urged that all this will be m violation of the Constitution and law, aad we frankly admit that we can see no warrant j for it in either. Yet the majority of the con- i stitnents of OongTess will sanction it, believ. j icg it tbe only oneau* left by the South of sol'-. 1 tag the political imbroglio growlug out of tbe iebellioa and its results up to thu time. It is idle on tbe part of tbe South to dream that her alleged States righu will be regarded by tbe peoI leol tbe Northern States as of more importance than *a'k* ptpult. That is: ihan tbe safety of , tbe Gent rai state, tbe preservation of which so long as men havo been associated under , cisilisted government, has been conceded to be f?' great duty of rulers and peoples, though 1a so doirg, constitutions, laws.

TBI GITT PRESS AND TH1 NEW YOBK Ab^uOlATkD PB1SS. The Press Association of Washington, embracing the five daily papers, morning and eM-mng. have decided to i&Ke their telegraphic tisvi.. frorr. the "t'mted States aud European New- Association," instead of from the "New York Associated Piess," as heretofore. They j are actuated m this course by the fact that the flrst-named association has demonstrated i s ability to tnrnisb news more promntly and in better -hape than the old association, and has ' e\mc<d a deposition ?o correct grievances complained ot by the preas outside of New j \ orK. that the old association ha* not displayed. | A further cause for this action has been fur- j ni-hed in the ruin adopted by the Associated j Press by which the use, or acceptance of news , irom any other source will cause the expulsion of the offending journal. A rule so arbitrary, ba\ >cg for its object to c ompel the purchn-e of news at oi.e particular shop, instead of from the best in the market, has been felt by the press everywhere as injurious to the newspaper business, and degrading in tbe las( degree 10 the newspaper publishers accepting it. The truth is that the New York Associated Press" is an institution created and worked especially in the interest ot New York papers? to gather news Jor New York, and not to disj, seminate news /r?m New York. It is an admirable institution for the New York paperst but a very bad one lor outside papers. Tbe Craig Association," on tbe contrary, looks for its support to. and work- for the interest of the newspaper press of the country at large, and papers outside of New York have, what they had not in tbe old concern, a voice in its management. Further. it is believed that competition is as wholesome in tbe news-farnuhing business as in any other, and it i? deemed for the interest ot tne press of the country that both associations?Craig's and Simonton's? shall live and prosper. * Riptori?There was a brilliant and appreciative at tbe National Theater last evening, to see tbe great tragedienne as "Mary Stuart."

L0HD0II TIM18 " 0r I A very distinguished party were assembled I last nigbt at the residence of Col. John W. I Forney, 553 New Jersey avenue, to meet the Hon. John Waiter, proprietor of the Un<b,n limef, the guest of Col. Forney. Among those present were Speaker Colfax. Chief Justice J Chase of the United States Supreme Court, J Chief Jastice Cartter and Judge Fisher of the Supreme Court ol the District. Maior General I Howard, the venerable peter Fv,rce. and a J number of prominent members of Congress I and of leading journalists of the country.] At the close ?f the tine bauquet w hich sucI ceeded a pleasant social interview . Col. ForI ney proposed the health of the distinguished I guest in felicitous terms. Mr. Waiter responded at some length, ex. j pressing his gratification at the hospitaltry | with which he had been greeted here and else. I where during his travels in this conntry, his I satis taction at the evidences of present and j the glorious promise of ftitnre prosperity I which he had witnessed wherever be had I gone, his high appreciation ol the character of I the American peepfe* and their institutions, I and his hopes for the coutiuued union, harI mony and greatness of the nation. He hoped I bis example in making a visit which had proved to him so satisfactory and so highly profitable, and frem whicn he bad learned so much of our people aud institutions, would be followed by many of those present, and Americans generally, in order that th*y might, as he bad been, be divested of prejn. I dices and misconceptions which nothing could j so well remove as actual observation. He reJ marked on the differing circumstances of our I country and bis own, ana tbe fitness of tbeir j respective forms of Government for their respective conditions, expressing his opinion I tba' the great strain upon our institn'ions will J not come for many years?not until we have a j population of two or three hundred millions. I In conclusion, he expressed his warm thanks tor tbe hospitality and kindness with which I be had everywhere been received. Tbe style of speaking of Mr. Walter is that 1 of the cultivated Englishman and practised parliamentarian, and made a most ULvarabie I impression. It is less florid than that of the I most ot our public speakers, is plain, converI sational, and has in fact not a particle of buukum" about It. Not once did Mr. Walter allude to tbe British lion. We hope our j speakers who may have occasion to orate at h.m will not flaunt our noble national bird too I frequently for his inspection and admiration We trust too that they will take it for granted that he is already aware that our territory is the biggest, our rivers the longest,our ountry the freest, and our Institutions the expansive I iet of ail on tbe globe. I In response to calls brief and happy speeches were made by General Banks. Speaker ColIkx, Hon. Wm. D. Kelley,General Hiram Walbridge and Major General Howard. In tbe remarks of Mr. Colfax be made an ek>I quent tribute to the character of Queen Victoria I as a wife,mother and sovereign, and spoke of the I warm love felt for her by every loyal Amen1 can in consequence of her good offices in stayI irg the bands of her ministry from heated action and preventing a collision between England I and tbe Ijpiited States. The enthusiastic and I protracted applause following upon this refer. I ence by Mr. Colfax to the Queen ot England I must have served to agreeably deraoastrate to Mr. Walter tbe warmth of tbe appreciation in I which bis sovereign is held in this country. Tbe company dispersed about midnight after I an unusually enjoyable entertainment. I MB.
