There baa been introduced into the Maryland Legislature a bill "to restore to rights of citizenship certain citizens of the State;" the object being to get ridftohat clause of the Stateconstitution which prohibit*persons who took an active part in the rebellion from participating in the government o! Maryland, but it is uot certain that the reqoisite two-thirds vote can oe obtained m it* favor. If it passes there we may expect to w other sweeping change?, as one or the Senators from Baltimore ha? already Introduced a bill calling a convention to reior? the enure constitution of the Slate, which it will he remembered was adopted as a measure of safety by the loyal men of Maryland during the war. That a constitution adopted in a time of conflict and danger, may contain provisions unsnited for a time of peace, ia probable; but we presume the reforms contemplated will be considered mainly wuh a view to ensure and perpetuate as tar as possible the ascendency of tba politi~m 1 -kl-fc * ?"

THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT Virginia and Kentucky having rejected tbe constitutional amendment, Maryland and Delaware will no doubt "follow salt;" and tbe amendment will not be ratified unless It is decided that three-fourths of the States represented in Congress have the power to adopt | it. We ao not question the right of southern legislators to rote upon this and other meas[ u res as tbey see fit, but if they are not disposed to make some sacrifices In order to be restored to tbe rights which they forfeited, they moit make up their minds to take tbe consequences THE TARIFF The Senate Finance Commit ee will proba> bl> not report their tariff bill before Monday next. It is understood that it will embrace some features of the House bill of last session, but will be founded mainly upon tbe Wells' tariff bill. CLBRE8- COMPKN8ATIOW.

Hauck was charming as "Amina," in ??La Soanambula," at tbe National Theater, last evening, and the freshness aud purity of ber voice in tbe beautiful and touching music of the part, and her unconstrained and natural acting created quite a senailon among musical critics, and elicited the enthusiastic applause of the small but appreciative audience present, who were not so well satisfied with the singing of Signor Haragli.
