The Prealdnat'e Fartbceaalnc Naanaie-A Coaiprenlae ao Negre laftaga. Tha President's annual meaaage to Congress, we understand, is completed, and that In refer ence to the great issue of Southern reconstruc tion it will probably open the door to a re conciliation with the two houses and a com promise on negro suffrage. From the letter of a Washington correspondent which we publish to-day it would appear that the compromise whioh the message will probably suggest will be upon the basis of that qualified negro suf frage whioh Mr. Johnson proposed in the sum mer of 1885 to his Provisional Governor Sharkey, of Mississippi?that is, a reading and writing qualification, or a property qualifica tion of two hundred and fifty dollars, as in New York. It farther appears from this Washington letter that as Congress has rejected the Presi dent's plan of Southern restoration, and as the President has defeated the ratification of the constitutional amendment of Congress, the two departments " may cry quits" and proceed to a reconciliation upon the intermediate com promise suggested, or something like it. But what are the facts in regard to the pend ing constitutional amendment ? It was made the test question in all the recent election^ irom the Atlantic across the continent to fee Pacific Ooean, and in all the States, from Maine to Oregon, the conditions thus proposed to the South have been most emphatically endorsed as the ultimatum of the North. A large majority of the Statos and a vast majority of their people have thus given their approval and their instructions to Congress to adhere to the amendment Nor is it necessary, though yery desirable, that there should be a perfect aocord between the Presi dent and Congress in this matter, inasmuch as the jurisdiction orer the subject belongs abso lutely to Congress. It is the duty of the Presi dent to submit his recommendations to the two bouses upon this as upon other questions, but Congress may adopt, modify or rejeot his sug gestions, as it has done from the beginning of the government. We are gratified, however, that, from the ad vices before us, we may proclaim It as a fact . that the President has given up his peculiar policy of restoration tried before and rejected by the Northern people in these late elections. This is an important step gained towards an early and satisfactory adjustment. Another step will bring the Executive to a harmonious understanding, and another to an active co operation with Congress. Nor do we see, in Mr. Johnson's present ideas of a compromise, so far as they are foreshadowed, anything like an M irrepressible conflict" with the pendiug amendment, except upon the Executive theory that the excluded States, as they stand, are Un filled to a voice in the ratification. Nothing, we think, could be fairer than the compromise of the amendment touching negro suffroge, in proposing to leave to each State to choose for itself whether its black population shall be totally excluded from the ballot box, at the price of their total exclusion from representa tion in Congress, or whether they shall be par tially or wholly admitted to suffrage and repre sentation. The shortest plan for a speedy and compre hensive settlement, including the sacred obliga tions of the national debt, the absolute repu diation of all rebel debts and all claims for emancipated slaves, the exclusion of a oertain class of prominent rebels from federal offices hereafter till absolved by a two-thirds vote of Congress, and the regulation of representation by suffrage, is the plan of the amendment, and its ratification by three-fourths of the Statei now constituting the government of the United States. If we admit the right of the exoluded States to a voice in the ratification, we must admit their right to reaome their vacated seats in Congress just as they are, and that all the legislation of Congress in their absence, since they laid down their arms as a hostile con federacy, is null and void. We mast admit that Congress has no right to impose upon those States any terms of restoration, or we must hold ffiat they have no right to a voice in the government, in view of their late rebellion, until recognised by Congress. From this last conclusion, we contend, there is no esoape, unless we can rednce the late gigantic Southern armed conspiracy and all 1m bloody battles to the legal standard of a series of election Hots, and nothing more. We huve sufficiently advanced in this controversy, however, under the lights of these reeent elections, to oomprekend this question of restoration as it really stands. The whole j unsdictlon over the subject is with Congress ; nnd in fbe rejection by Congress of the Presi dent's provisional work the field of reconstruc tion is reopened to the beginning. We are glad to be assured that Mr. Johnson has abandon*! bis late peculiar policy. It waa a policy ot generosity to and confidence in the Sonth, which met with no corresponding confidence in that quarter, and much less in the North. Now, if he baa concluded in his message, after submitting his recommendations, to leave the whole matter in the bands of Congress, as wo presume he haa done, we aball soon have a settlement, and the excluded States will he brought to their nober senses in the harmonious co-operation of President and Congress. Tns Atlantic Yacht Race.?One of our cop perhead contemporaries, that has been for some time swashing through "the elbows of the Miu clo, formed by the sympathies of youth," under takes to oondemn the great Atlantic yacht race in December because some of the owners may not go in their yachts. We are informed that at least elghb?possibly ten?members of the New York Yacht Club will sail In the yachts, and under these circumstances ws should like to have our contemporary explain how the race can be termed "a mercantile affair," or "a mere scramble for money." Whether the own ers go or not is a nfhtter for them to decide; but as the race has bfM endorsed by our yacht oiub, as the commodore of the club Is to act as Judge, and as eight or ten prominent gentlemen, members of the club, are fo sail in the yaohta, we beg leave to inform onr contemporary that it Is quite tlm? to sail upon another took and oeeso 'hose ground I see slurs and seal Wo us insinuations Ow Mastaaal ?!??h? Wtol 8>mII ke 9m? an* Iftet Ml *???>. r Ik i few daya we shell here the report of the Seoreterj of the Treasury to Congress, end we up expect that that body will shortly after take some action to place oar national finances on a sound foundation. The session being short, and there being a long interim of nine months before the new Congress will assemble, it is highly important that a well regulated system should be established this winter. This question really ought to be the first to ocoupy the attention of the national legislature, as it is undoubtedly the first in im portance. It is a subject on which few of our pnblio men are well educated, and it will there fore require a very thorough and deliberate discussion. The greatest difficulty will be to disentangle it from the impracticable theories of Tlsionary financiers and the sobemes of inter ested parties. But this can be overcome by going down to simple principles and by taking instructions from the lessons of history. We cannot tell what the Secretary of the Treasury proposes to recommend. There are a great many rumors and speculations in the press about that, some of which evidently emanate from the national banks and other powerful interests, expressing what they wish rather than what they know. But if we are not accurately Informed of j what he will recommend, we know what he . ought to recommend and What Congress ought to do. It is this: There should be a reduction of the revenue to an amount sufficient only for the economical administration of the govern ment and for a moderate fixed sinking fund to liquidate the national debt within a reasonable time. Our present enormous revenue of five hundred millions or upwards is for too large in times of peace ; it becomes, in fact, a great demoralising corruption fond at Washington. Three hundred millions ought to be sufficient to pay the interest on the debt, the ordinary expenses of the government, and for a sinking fond, which, properly applied, would extinguish the debt in thirty years. A reduction of nearly half our taxes might safoly be made. But in making this reduction Congress ought to take care to relieve the burdens on industry and the productive powers of the oountry. Above all, the mass of produoers and consumers should not be burdened with taxes which operate for the benefit especially of a certain olass of manufacturers and monopolists. Let the re duction be made where the burden is most felt Then the whole of the interest bearing debt should be consolidated in one form, say in five per cent consols at long date. This would simplify it, reduce the cost of management and give to the people of our own country safe stocks for investment Less of it would be held abroad at this reduced rate of interest, and it would create a powerful conservative class at home interested In the preservation of the government There would be little diffi culty in transferring the six and seven per or nt bonds, which have a limited time to ran, into long dale five per oent consols. But this should all be dohe by the government itself, and not through great jobs to Jay Cooke A Co. of other private parties. A law oould be framed to reduce the interest, which would at the same time do justice both to the public creditors and to the taxpaying people. There should be a sinking fund established and held inviolable for the extinguishment of the entire debt in thirty yeans or so. That, probably, would be within as short a period as the steady and healthy financial and commer cial interests of the country would justify this change in so much capitalized wealth. The operation of extinguishing or buying up the debt through commissioners or a bureau oould 1\p conducted so steadily and quietly that no great derangement of value would follow. The man who would change his six per oent bonds, run ning ten years, for five per cent consols, running thirty years, has the full value of the longer period, though the government may be in the market to buy at all times. The intereet on the debt is too high every way?too high in proportion to what the debt was porohased at, too high for such good securities and too high to keep the debt at home, where it ought to be kepi. One of the first things that should be done Is to hare a uniform legal tender eurrency, and no other. The so-called national banks are a vent private monopoly, dangerous in every way and a heavy drain upon the industry of the nation. Their circulation of three hundred millions is a tree gift to private rich corpora tions. They pay nothing for it They are taking twenty to twenty-five millions a year out of this privilege, which ought to belong to the government and people. It ie the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on a country. If the government would substitute legal tenders, which is a much safer and mors de sirable tnon"y, for the national bank currency, it would save this twenty to twenty-five mil lions a year. All it would have to do In ac complishing this would be to buy up the three hundred millions of interest bearing bonds now deposited as security tor national bank notes, by an issue of non-interest bearing legal tenders to the same amount. Last of all, but not least, let thers be no ruinous attempts made to injudioiously con tract the curroncy. The cry of "on to specie payments" by the hard money theorists and speculators is more absurd and dangerous than ths "on to Richmond" clamor of the politicians iu the early part of the war. We are doing well enough, and shall continue to do so, if the currency he not meddled with. We are health fully approximating a gold basis. Tbo country will grow up to that in the course of a few years and as soon as it will be safc to do ao. Nobody but the bondholders and the very rich could he benefited by attempting to force *jio< ie payments; all th" rest ot the community would suffer. The history of England under n similar state of things ought to warn nntl guide us ; lor that country went through the most terrible revulsions and sufferings in the insane efforts to force specie payments. We hope, therefore, tbet Mr. McCulloch aad Con gress will hsvs sense enough to tske these facts snd views into consideration and give us s sound and permanent system of ourrency and national finance. Chjup EsTunrnmn or a Snmwxra Nuwa Assocuttoh.?The lately dismissed agent of the New York Associated Press has been en deavoring to establish a peddHag news asso ciation for the purpose of tarnishing bogus aad second hand Information to ths country news paper*. It guvs on ths fifith instant an exam ple of its mode of tarnishing cheap sable WlSi r^s by stealing bodllv ftp* t|e jrtntfn of thai data oar special report of the infhmous language lifted By the LAdon p specs fogardtag the Fenians, and telegraphing it to the erasing papers throughout the oountiy, la which it appeared duly credited to the spurious asso ciation. Halted States Senates1 Sr Wait a Carolina The RehelUaas Spirit ef ths Smth. North Carolina has just supplied as with a specimen of the sort of "loyalty" that pervades the South, by the eleotton of Judge M. E. Manly, late of the Supreme Court of that State, to the office of United States Senator. Judge

Manly wae an original and malignant traitor. He used his high position on the benoh of the Appellate Court of the State, the higbeet judi cial tribunal, to foster the progress of seces sion and to taks North Carolina over to the rebel government After the war had com menced he distinguished himself as the eon veaieat tool of Jeff Davis, deciding in the numerous cases that came before him court, in volving the legality of the arbitrary acts of the Confederate government, invariably in favor of his master. Judge Pierson,.the Chief Jus tice of the Supreme Court, an upright Judge and at heart a Union man, stood for the most part alone in his redstanoe to the usurpations of the Jeff Davis adrndUstratton, Judge Manly ! being always against him, and in a majority of I instances, taking Judge Battle, a weak and j vacillating man, with him. When the war ceased and the aotive rebellion waa subdued, Judge Manly continued a bitter and unyield ing traitor. As a member of the Reconstruc tion Convention held at Raleigh in November, 1865, he opposed the act deolarlng the ordi nance of secession passed in 1861 null and void in the past as In the future, and struggled against the repudiation of the rebel debt. The act reorganising the courts of the State was in troduced in order to get rid of this malignant traitor and others who disgraced the bench of tbe State, and whose term of offloe, being for life, could not be otherwise brought to a close. In the convention he succeeded, with the aid of Judge Howard, of the Superior Court, in at first defeating the proposition to repudiate the rebel debt; but a telegram from President Johnson subsequently induced the convention to reoonsider its aotion and to pass the ordinance of repudiation over the heads of ths secessionists. The seleotion of suoh an unsubdued rebel for United States Senator proves how futile it is to hope for any restoration policy based upon a healthy sentiment of loyalty at the South. North Carolina has been generally admitted to be less impregnated with secession than any other State of the late confederacy. A large share of her people professed to remain at heart true to the Union, although compelled to give an outward adhesion to the rebel govern ment Many of her citizens joined the Union army and fonght well in the Union cause. The administration of Jeff Davis found In North Carolina its most troublesome enemies; and as soon as tbe progress of ths federal army re claimed that State to the Union tbe secession sentiment hid its head, and the community ? seemed upon the surface to be earnest in Its loyalty. Tbe action of the North Carolina Legislature is therefore full of significance. It shows that tbe spirit of ths rebellion is not dead, and that it has only laid aside its arms to resort to more covert bnt not loss dangerous means to compass the destruction of the Union. It evinces a proud and stubborn determination to insnlt and defy the loyal States by forcing into Congress such unwashed traitors as this rebel Judge. It is time for Congress to adopt such a decisive policy as the state of the ooun try warrants, and to put down in reality the rebellion that still stalks abroad, although it may for the present keep its revolver and its bowie knife in its pocket. Tin Irish News bt thb Cabi.*.?It is evident from the exceedingly scanty news concerning the state of affairs in Ireland which reaches us by the cable that we may not expect much in telligence through that channel as to the pro gress of the Fenian insurrection. If there has been a rising anywhere in Ireland, as indicated in the special despatoh to the Herald on Wednesday morning, the precise location of ftie movement and the extent of it most have been known in London. The fierceness of the Eng lish papers proves that a formidable insurrec tion was going on, and yet in the despatches of yesterday there is not a word to intimate where the rising took place, nor under what circum stances. We are simply intormod that more troops were to go to Belfast, and that some orms and uniforms were seised in Liverpool. From the telegrams received yesterday evening by the cable, it appears that a battalion of the Horse Guards have been ordered to Ireland. Every Englishman and Irishman knows that when the Guards leave London the emergency which demands their presenoo is of the gravest ? harartor. We are left to jndge from this and Hitnilar significant circumstances of the extent ot the "rebellion," as the London 7Wa calls the "uprising in Ireland." It looks as if the British government, which holds both ends of the cable, will give us just aa little news as possible, and that not of a character to create any excitement or sympathy for the Fenians. General Grant and thi President.?It is given out from Washington that General Grant the other day had a long oonsultation with the President on Southern restoration, and that in this consultation the General earnestly opposed t!># scheme of an amnesty-suffrage compromise " as an ntterly unsate basis of reconstruction, tending to restore rebels to absolute power in the rebellious section," and that " he urged Mr. Johnson to accept and recommend the pro posed amendment to the constitution aa a fair and just nlun of reconstruction, taking the groun I thst the people had declared tor it, and : it H would be iu?wis>? to disregard their Wishes." have only to say her-' that what ever uay he the fecM ill legard to this reported contmita.iou sod conversation, we have no doubt that the views above given are the opinions of General Grant and ot the great body of the Union soldiers of the war, and that Congress, thus sustained, will hold fast to the amend ment, and make Its ratification oomplcto with lis approval by the legislatures of three-fourths of the States having a voice in the government. Thr Radicals PnPAnmo fob Action.?We learn from Washington that the radical fhction, under the lead of Thad Stevens, Ben Wade and a tow others, are preparing for their proposed violent and revolutionary work at the oom meneoment of the session of Oongrees next week. Bon Wade, It is said, Is le be mads President of the Senate la plaoe of Mr. Foster, rotfeoed. Thud Stevens, tt Vl reported, declares that "ha <m altogether too mild last session, ?id that he intends to be very radicaL" We ham no doubt these determined firebrands and old political campaign em will eommenoe in earnest as Stevens did lati December, bnt we ma just as persuaded that the splurge they intend to make will end in nothing. The con servative element of the republican party in Congress is too powerful and too patriotic to permit these men to have their way. We may expeot a lively time, however, the first days of the session. The New Twk Press Asseelatlea and the C Marry Journals. The Executive Committee of the Wee tern As sociated Press, in an interview with the mem bers of the New York Aasooistion on the 28th inst., demanded privileges and terms which It was impossible to grant, and they withdrew from the oonferenoe and made the best terms possible with a spurious concern started by a former but now dismissed agent of the New York Associated Press. These gentlemen assert that the entire Western prose will join them in this movement, but by their telegraphic explanations and apologies to their "consti tuents," a oopy of whioh we have received,, would teem to fear otherwise. We imagine that the press of the country will not bo in haste to aeoept the advioe and take the unwise step of the agents of their association. It is a matter of time and of much money to establish an association like that of the New York press, and one at all adequate to answering the demands of the press and the people of the country. Expensive local offlces have to be established, with experienced sala ried agents in charge; an equal number of foreign correspondents have to be employed at still heavier expense, news boats maintained, aqd hundreds of other similar expenses which the country papers have hitherto not been called upon to sustain. The expenses of the Qkiuld alone in this respect will foot up many thousands of dollars per annum, and those of the other papers make the aggregate a mon strous snm. All the news furnished by those bnndreds of private correspondents of the New York papers has been furnished gratis to the country papers, saving to them not only the expenses and salaries of the correspondents, but the heavy cost of its transmission by the oable. The spurious association whioh is struggling to establish itself proposes to fur nish this same news seoond hand, half a day after its publication here, thus giving the small evening papers in other cities the benefit of the news in advanoe of the larger and more important'morning journals. This clipping of news from the New York papers is a species of cheap enterprise not likely to be appreciated by the morning journals or the people of the1 country, and they will have to tarn to the New York association for a full and prompt supply of Ike American's indispensabiiity?news. The old association is determined to excel even itself in the charaoter and completeness of its news and in despatch in its transmission, and if neoessary to the maintenance of its superiority the special telegrams of the Hsrxld and other papers from nil parts of the world will be de livered to the country prees simultaneously with their publication in this city. London Chivalbt.?It hu been credibly stated that General Haynau, an Austrian, once r mi led the famous London brewery of Barclay A Perkins, and that, it becoming known who he was, the burly brewers at once set upon him in very violent style, compelling the dis tinguished foreigner to run for his 1Kb. This baa been regarded as a fact honorable to the humanity of the brewers ; it was accredited as an expression of the chivalry of the British laborer. That hardy follow, foil of the geue rosity of good beer, saw in Haynau a man who bad put down revolution Rtth unnecessary cruelty, and he could not oontaia' his indigna tion at the sight, but bad to foil on with bis big fists. Now can any one show that Haynau was ever more cruel than the London papers pro pose to bef Did he ever commit any act equal to those that would result from the teach ings of the London 1\m*s and: its fellows f Never. And we respectfully suggest to the London brewers that there Is a new oppor tunity in Printing House square for the demon stration of their instincts in fovor of humanity. Grret.rt Oft ran Tea ex Again.?There are no responses from republican journals or lead ers in fovor of Greeley's last manifesto ot "uni versal amnesty and impartial suffrage," but many protests against It He is evidently off the track again, just as he was getting in a good position to become a great man In Israel. Our Albany correspondent says that there is a strong combination. In the republican ohurch against him for the Senate, in consequence of his "on to Richmond" blundering, bis negotia tions with Jake Thompson and George Sanders, bis advooaey of the right of secession, his proposition to pay the rebel States four hun dred millions of dollars for the abolition of slavery, his offer to. go bail for Jeff Davis, his rejection of the constitutional amendment, coupled with his universal amnesty to rebels and their restoration to political power. This is a heavy budget of blunders, but his party would probably excuse all the rest if he had avoided this last manifesto of universal am nesty to rebels, when the unanimous voice of the Northern States demands first of the rebel States some solid securities for the foture. That blunder of an unconditional amnesty to all the rebels, great and small, has put Greeley under a cloud again, and if be should foil for the Senate it will be from the same misfortune that has laid "T. W." on the shelf?the mis fortune of too many manifestoes. Senator Feshsndun's Views?The Amend, mxnt to be SrsTAi.vEn a Conoebss.?Senator Fessenden, at the reception of the Union League Club of this city, at their rooms on Wednes day last, spoke of the general results of the late elections as "a just and empbatio verdict of the American people in fovor of the constitu tional amendment," and strongly condeawed any compromises calculated to destroy or Injure the legitimate fruits of the war, sad es pecially a compromise which would pic4' * premium on treeooa by each u theory ?* that of "universal amnesty for impartial suffrage." Hs bald that "the question has be?n settled by the people, end their wish it "as the duty of their representatives to make tangible and effi cient la the legislation of the country and its practical enforcement.'' Now, coaetdering tie position ot Mr. Fessen den ae the leading member of the Senate branch of the jolal Committee on Reconstruc tion, w|foh put in|e fhapc and fdevted ft* 1 amendment which waa the question fa all the reoent elections, we tink it may be safsly assumed that the two hoa% of Coegiem will adhere to this amaadmanvaad posh it through. We think that the viewiof Senator Feasenden may be accepted as aaaatherita tire declaration on the subject Imyebaif of Congress.

Thin policy is ntterly unworthy Justice Dowling, and while it may not do smcL Injury to Mr. Connolly, who* is beyond question the most acceptable candidate, it will certainly injure those concerned in the scheme. Justice Dowling ought to* be above all such "ring" tricks, and we hope that the rumors are un founded. THE FENiAEfS. (lew slwwed Sxehient la the City?Owwtrlba cleae ef Arm aad Money, See.

The Fenian Prisoner* In Canada. TO THE KD1T0K OK THE HERALD. A Canadian correspondent of the Kmet call a in qnen tion the accuracy of the statement that Mr. John A. Macdonaid, Attorney General of Canada, declared la this city, Immediately previous to bis departure for Europe, that the-Canadian government had determined to suspend the sentences of Lynch and Father McMahoa. and hold tbem as hostages for the good behavior 01 their Iriends. Mr. Maodonald did malce the statement in Uiia city which I gave currency to, and even went further, saying that there never bad been any idea whatever or hanging any of the captured Fenians ?, although If any of the boma fide loaders, such as Sweeny, had been taken the result might have been different. And be also said that new trials would not be granted, at the government was fully satisfied as to the fair, Impartial and legal mannerln which the trials had been conducted. The course determined upon bv the Canadian govern ment was dictated by motives of public policy, and' uos because of the weakness of the testimony. Mr. Maodon ald declaring that the evidence In both Lynch sad Father McMahon's case* was complete and irresistible. At the same time he considered the action of our gov ernment lu the premises as perfectly proper and reason able. It remaius to be seen what effect transpiring events In Ireland may have upon the Fenian prisoners in Canada But I do not believe, under any circum stances, their sentences will be carried out. THE FENIANS IN CANADA. SPECIAL TELEGA AW TO THE HERALtL The Fenian Prlaenem in Ternnte?No Return Made to the Application for New Trials. Torowto, Nov. 29, 1899. As It was generally ecpected that judgment would ho delivered in the Court of Queen's Bench or Common Pleas on the application of Mr. McKensle en behalf of the Fenian prisonere for n new trial, a large number of people attended, and nt the Lime the ooipt opened scarcely a seat could be obtained. They angleusly waited until near two o'clock, when It was intimated that the judges would give no decision, those In the Queen's Bench differing in toOi with the opinion of their brethren In the Common Pleas. At Osgood Ball It Is said that ths Judgment in the Common Plea* will be adverse to the applicants, while 1a the QuOOn's Bench Judges BageMy end Morrison are of the opinion that the grounds urged justify them In granting the rule. Only two days now remain for them to exprees their views If adverse to law they may poasibly satisfy public opinion; but It la doubtful whether it will prove or ultimate bcaetit. As regards the Rev. Mr. McMahon's case, It would amount to nothing abort of murder If they carry out the sentence. The evtdenoe against him was of a nature which would ooovloi no man in a free country; and it la much to be dmilored that religious and partr motive* have so much to do with influencing a Jury. ft Is but Just to odd that Maasiw Morpliy and McKensle have boon unceasing In their effort* to dojall in tbeir power oo behalf of their unfnr. lunate ollents. Not a stone has keen left unturned j sad if their dischar .e depends on legal acumen, better men could not be found.
