The policy of Juarez rogardlua those Mexi cans who have served in the imperial armies, and who may fall into his hands ufter the final embarkation of the French, is slightly hinted at in n communication or tha Secretary of War of the Mexican republic to Oenernl Pm-on at Tuxpan. The Secretary disappro . ee in strong language of wholesale pardons to such persons. Certain documents are published officially by the Juares govern ment, which throw a flood of light upon Ortega's opera tions. The latter has granted the privilege of coining Mexican uiouey In San Francisco to n citizen of New York, but Juarez being requoeted by the same individual to ratify the permission of Ortega, It waa promptly re fused. The statement that General Sedgwick had been ordered under arrest for bis visit in person to Matamoros is denied in our New Orleans despatch, and his reported occupation of Matamoros with his troops is again pro nounoed a canard. The news from the seat of war in Paraguay is dated Bio Janeiro, October 20. In addition to the change of commanders In the Brazilian army, which was reported In the Hsiuld a few days ago, a new commander has been appointed to the fleot In place of Admiral Yisoount Tlmandare. A levy of 25,000 men in Brazil Is de manded, bat the recruits are coming In but slowly, Tbe loss of the allies at Fort Curupaity la now reported to be 7,000 men, beside? ttareo Iron Cads bolng seriously dam aged. The allied army, It was rumored, would fall back on Comentes. The National Exhibition at Rio Janeiro opened on the 10th of October. Tbe exhibition Is intended to display the products of that favored country. Tbe Emperor and Empress, and tho Prince and Princess, accompanied by a large suite, attended tho opening. Further heavy dutiea have been Imposed on the dis tillation of rnm in J?nwc* by tho Legislature of thst island. But little margin for profit now remains with the business under tbe new tax. There will be in the future no direct communication batwoen Kingston and the Cnltod States except by transient sailing vessels A screw steamer, called the Bolivar, reached Laguayra, Venezuela, on the 13th of October last, having been fitted out ia England for use In the Venezuelan navy. It was manned with Englishmen, who insisted on bolng retained as Us crew, and on trading that the Venezuelan government would not retain them thoy put to sea with the Bolivar and have not since been heard from. The two Commissioners appointed by the Legislature of Mississippi to intercede with tho President for the pardon of Jeff Davis, arrived at Fortress Monroe yester day. They could give the prisoner vory little encourage ment as to the success of their mission, but what the result of It has been is for the present unknown. Cle ment C.CIay has left for his homo in Alabama. Rivos "Vollard, of the Richmond Kxaminer, visited Fortress Monroe on Thursday to see the rebel chieftain, but was refused admission in accordance with orders which intordlot the admission of representatives of Southern newspapers. The expected Fenian raid from Vermont was a cause of groat oxclteraant In Canada yesterday. Information was received by the government that largo bodies of Irishmon had left Cincinnati and Chicago under Colonel Starr, and a despatch was received from Erie calling for aid on account of an cxpectod demonstration from Buf falo. Ail the military forco in Montreal has received orders to be in readiness to move at a moment's notice. Tbe dorslon of the Judges on the application for a now trial will be given to day. Two merchants at Tituwvtlle. Pa, who have charge of the Parker Oil Reflnery, wore recently arrestod on sus picion ot having commitlod heavy frauds on the govern ment by ovadlng the Internal Revenue laws. The brig Althea, from Now York, with n full cargo of provisions and other effects, has boeu wrecked at Long Bay, Jamaica The crow were saved. A break occurred lu the Chomung Canal and also In tbe Erie Cannl on Thursday n'ght. A collision occurred yesterday on the Charleston and Memphis Railroad, by which seven persons w-re killed and many wounded. Over a thousand names have been * gued to tbe petition gotten up In New Orleans praying Congress to appoint Provisional ftovornors for all the Southern States. Oovornor WeUs has concluded to give tho pe tition his concurrence. The Texas cotton crop la estimated at two hundred thousand bales. _ The President nnd Chlel Justice Cbnse en Negro Nnflrngr. "Chief Justice Chose coincides with the Presi dent," as wo are informed from Washington, "in the recommendations he is about to moke to Congress" on Soathcrn restoration, em bracing a general amnesty to persons involved in the late rebellion, as an equivalent for negro suffrage. It further appears that "strong influences have been brought to bear on the President to induce him to modify his views" in relation to this suffrage amnesty plan, but lhat "he has positively declined to accede to auch influences." Tbo whirligig of politics brings together strange bedfellows, aa In tho cose of Captain Botts and Captain Tyler sleeping together under the same blanket; but not even tho most visionary politician of 1865 dreamed thnt Chief Justice Chase, on tho question of negro suf frage, would "coincide" with President Johnson ! in 1866. We accept the President's new de parture as an approach to a reconciliation with Congress, nnd perhaps the Chief Justice I m iy be niming at this object. It must not bo forgotten, however, that though thrown in tho background by President Lincoln's superior claims and popularity in 1864, Chief Justice Chase Is still suppoaed to l?e looking to the Presidential succession, and thst in this view, in 1865, with the collapse of the rebellion, be was fust in the field as a missionary in the South, in favor of universal suffrage, negroes nnd all. We must not forget that General Grant stands on the amendment plotform, and that the Chief Justice may be aiming to sot up another. I to Southern restoration, it is a matter of 1 no material importance whether the Chiet Jus lice coincides with the President or oppo es hL pl.m, inasmuch as the plan of Congress has been approved by the re?ponsiblo Slate? und people ot the Union, thu? making it the duty of Congress lo co-operate with said States and people to engraft thin plan upon the constitu tion as the supreme law of the land. The plan of a general nuinetty in exchange for universal or Impartial suffrage does not reach tho case, und unless put into the federsl constitution will amount to nothing; and so with every other pish. Virginia or South Carolina, for example, msy agree to anything and everything you propose as term* of restoration to-day; but unless this sgreenient iw fixed in the supreme In w of the Und she ntay reject everythtng the day after her restoration to Congress. There is no security for the future short of a reconstruction of the constitution Itself, and this Is the secret of tho astonishing unanimity and force with which tho loyal States have endorsed the plntT of Congress. It i? as plain, too. as any conclasion from tha lense, th.itIt ttie States rxcluTed frojn Congress hnv no riybt to a vjjco in Congress as they stand, they have no right to a voice In revising the constitution. Their ratifications of tbe amendment* abolishing slavnrv amount to nothing, notwithstanding Mr. Seward's offloN proclamation of their rn^dltj. They are nnil and* void, because if those States were not legally restored they had no right to be in cluded in the ratification; and, if legally re stored, the President had no right to coerce them to a ratification. But this does not affect the amendment, which by the approval of three fourths of the States de facto and de jure con stituting the government of the United States, has been made part and parcel of the consti tution. We presume that one of the first acts of the two houses of the approaching session will be a declaration to this effect It is tally author ized by the overwhelming popular verdict of the States holding the government With such a declaration, too, resting upon a judgment concerning the status of the late rebel States which has been rendered by the Supreme Court since the war, we can have this consti tutional amendment ratified and this contro versy thus substantially settled before the final adjournment of this Congress on the 4th of March next. Thus settled, if tho excluded Statos do not choose voluntarily to accept the amendment in the reorganization of their local governments, they will become subject to Con gress as unorganized territories, and thus sub ject to a reconstruction oven in the matter of their boundaries. From the Southern journal?, from the letters of our Southern correspondents and from all other sources of information from tho outside States, it is apparent that their ruling classos have settled down into the dogged resolution to do nothing to help themselves to a read mission into Congress. They have fallen into the serious mistake that if they do nothing Congress can do nothing with thorn. But let South Carolina understand that by this policy of "masterly inactivity" she may bo merged by Congress as part of a vast unorganized ter ritory Into the new territory of North Carolina, and she will be apt to realize tho dangers of doing nothing to regain her character and to retain her boundaries as a State. Dangers, wo say; for the power and the authority are with Congress, and the will may next appear?if no other remedy is offered?the will to reconstruct the States concerned as part of a vast unor ganized territory recovered by arms from a hostile government and occupied by an in tractable people. The controversy is drifting in this direction, and whatever may be the individual opinions of tho President or the Chief Justice, the all important factB still stand out in bold relief? that the Thirty-nin'h Congross, which passed the pending amendment by a two-fhirds vote in each house, and the Fortieth Congress, just elcctod, are substantially the same, and that between them the power of Congress over the excluded States is fixed to the end of President Johnson's term of offioo. Tito Mveterlons Influence of the Herald? Vnrliii, llumarltli. Theatres, Wars, Me teors. ike. The influence ot the Herald upon everything and everybody is so deep a mystery that at tempts to explain it are, of course, absurd. Its very influence, in fact, renders such attempts nugatory. Thinking upon this influence oven confuses the intellect of our copperhead cen sors, nnd tbey run into vagaries, contradictions and blunders that might have been conceived by Bully Bottom, who only had a jackass* bead upon his shoulders, while ho thought all the time he was playing the king of hearts. The inconsistencies of our critics show bow easily a head even of copper may be turned br pondering too long over the pro blem of the Herald's influence. There is dan ger in the attempt, and that very danger is only another evidence of our wonderfal power. Bohemian investigators had better give it up. They must, indeed, follow the true scientific method, nnd treat this wonderful influence as a fact, relinquishing all vain theories and discus sions as to why it is a feet. Theories in expla nation of the origin of wonders always lead away from the proper contemplation nnd study of the wonder itself. In treating a fact we stand on terra firraa. And of conrae.the myste rious influence of the Herald is a feet. Is it not constantly recognised by the declarations of our detractors ? Were not all the events that have oocurrod for many years past due to the Herald? Can we not clearly prove this by the combined utterances of our friends and onr enemies ? Undoubtedly we can. There was the case of the meteors. What can be more clear than that the meteoric shower in England was got ten up In a hurry to sustain fhe Herald against a Down E ist astronomer ? It has long been * J evident to the meanest capacity?that or onr copperboad contemporary?that it in because of our denunciation that countless thousands constantly pay money to see the most indecent play ever put before the city public. It Is also well known that it is because of our neglect that the once host theatre on Broadway h is dwindled to h barely paying condl'ion. We have awakened the dormant sonslbiliti-s of the clergy, too, and induced parsons to lean a little?as mnch as was possible?toward the side of public decency in their sermons. We hare well nigh procured the blowing of the rocks out of Iiell Gate, and of course the rocks originally came there only through our oon nivauce. Our agitations ot progress and re form have b"en heard so far that they havo not only shaken England to the oenlre; they havo gone deeper still, and in regions not natnesble to esrs polite, it is proposed to substitute for old fashioned brimstone som" new and-more terrible tortnru drawn from the great discover ies ot modern chemistry. It was some article advertised in the Herald; and this change is necessary, as the present terrible wickedness of the world?our influence again?shows that brimstone has lost Its terrors The war of secession, the defeat of the Chicago nominee, the result of the late elections, the origin and the ruin of the Mexican empire, the Prussian war, the Fenian rising?these are some trifl"? that show our influence. Wo are responsible

for th?ra all. Indeed we have a moral con sciousness that we are in some degree reponsi bfe for that great nuisance to Bohemians who have dined ont?the law of gravitation; though exactly bow we are responsible for It is our secret. Another indication of the strange, secret, bnt Insyljable power of the Herald Is seen In the ffest ocean yacht race. We said that it ought to take place in a certain way, or that it onght not to -no matter wbiob?and behold the great yaeht race, one way or the other way, becomes a nation! fact, and is accepted and dtgonwd and jm^flded *u! fixed nn If it were the constitution of tbe United Stntee, or the P??l Rent's policy, or the propoaed ImpoaohmatkL Of <be new New* Association, or the bare naked .truth, or anything elae capable of fixing tbe whole attention of the great American peo ple. We mentioned this yacht race several times, and it fc? already a great suoceas; and thia was because we opposed it?of course. Apropos to the yacht race another illustration of our power cannot bare escaped the notice of the public. We publlsbod yesterday a letter on the race which revealo the existence in our midst of a first class humorist?aot of the vul gar, common place comio lecture sort, but one fall and bubbling over with ripe, unlabored, dainty fan?a humorist who might have taken his equal place In the circle that discussed the quiddities of the gentle Ella. We are respon sible for him too. No matter how we got the letter?" mysterious influence," etc., comes In there?the humor justifies the means?this hu morist is the first specimen of the genuine ar ticle that has been Introduced to (he public this score of years, and only an institution of our wonderful power oould have brought him out Let the public be grateful for the mys terious influence of the Huraijj. Spartan* New* n PeUlInf Newt Aeenrtn tlea. A former agent of the New York Associated Press, dismissed its service for general in efficiency, combining with one or two Western papers, has been endeavoring to establish a concern for collecting news as cheaply a? possible and peddling it out at the highest prices to be had, but willing to take anything ofTered. Not content with stealing cable telegrams from the Hkraiji, in which he showed taste in selection, if not enterprise in collection, he has gone to manufacturing them out ot whole cloth. Yesterday the single New York paper which receives bis telegrams announced in a long despatch that Thanks giving hud been celebrated In London by the American residents there; that patriotic speeches were made and toasts drunk j but what was said, by whom spoken or at what place in London the banquet was held, is care fully omitted, as the person forging the despatch could not " guess" more than gen eralities. It is very probable that Thanks giving was celebrated in London by American citizens, as of yore ; but it requires no cable from the soa nor ghost firom the grave to tell us that much. The same enterprising ngent, sitting in his fourth story, back, with stylus in hand, "guesses," too, that "Carlotta is worse that "Maximilian will be homo early in Decem ber," and various other like matters as easily conjectured here as in London and written out much cheaper than by the cable. On the 26th ultimo the seme enterprising agent furnished the startling information that Maximilian had abdicated, and himseir and his two Western adherents, Messrs. Halstead and White, went about quoting the telegram as nn instance of tbe superior energy ot the new association. Tbe telegram bore the fact of its manufacture on its face; for it was dated at Now Orleans on November 24, and stated that Maximilian had left Vera Crua ou the 22?1 of tbe same month. Now, it is utterly Impossible to transmit Intelligence by any means in existence from Vera Crux to New Orleans in forty-eight hours, and the despatch I was necessarily bogus as regards dates. That it was bogus as regards the faot stated is now apparent; for we have news direct from Vera Cruz to November 25. Maximilian had not only not left Vera Cruz on November 22, but had never been there, and up to the 25th? three days later?was residing at Orizaba. ? It is with news like this that the Western editors who give in their adherence to the spurious association will have to content them selves until they?not the agents-can establish for him?not at his expenae, but their own?a system like that of the New York Associated Press for obtaining foreign news. They will doubtless hesitate and think again when they come carefully to calculate tbe cost of main taining, as the Hkra.lt) does, correspondents In TiOndon, Paris, Rome, Venice, Berlin, Vienna, St. Petersburg, Hamburg, Lisbon, Madrid, Con stantinople, Shanghae, Melbourne, V alparsiao, Panama, Lima. San Francisco, Rio Janeiro, Bnenos Ayres, Havana, Si. Thomas, St. Do mingo, Asplnwull, Vera Cruz, Mexl o, Mata raoros, Chihuahua nnd El Paso, besides still more expensive travelling correspondents with every important enterprise, like that of tha Collins Telegraph line, the Sherman Campbell mission, the European squadron, the allied armies of Brazil, Uruguay and the Argentine Confederation, the tle?*tg of Peru and Cbil". ocnnn yacht races and dozen* ot other matters important to the public. There are news yachts to be built nnd manned off Halifax, iu Panama Gulf, at Rio Janeiro, in Sail Francisco bay, iu the Mersey and off Queenstown, and daily messenger, sre to be , run from London to Queenstown, and from Paris to London. Tb -e expenses have never been felt hy tho Western pan?rs, a* wo main tained these at our own e j i?-and without any intention of sharing it with others, though subsequently giving it to the association free of cost. These arrangements require not merely a heavy outlay of money, but n large amount of a peculiar talent not at all limes lo Ik. obtained. A more perfect system can not be devised, it enables us lo keep not only constantly ahead of all spurious associations and paper*, but of the most enterprising jour nals of this or any country, and makes the IlhHALn the -best newspaper in tho world. ' Our (?itt Railroads?The Peabl SmzEr lie CAPADE.?If E person has ever been in a theatre or any other large building waen an alarm of fire has been raised and has witnessed the in sane efforts of the crowd to escape through the narrow doors and passages, apparently constructed as traps for human livea, they may foim some idea of tho present condition of rail road travel in New York. There are no outlets j for the million und a hall of people, or therea bouts, who form the population, resident and floating, of the citv nud its suburbs, snve through narrow and crowded streets, with the single exception of Broadway. The great de mnnd of the d*y l? lor railroads. 'I hey are a necessity ot the long stretch of land that fo.m? Manhattan Island.

Ofl Peari street the matter came to a crisis on Thursday last,- by the arrest of parties engaged in laying a track. All this serves to prove the necessity of some comprehensive plan of public improvement, under the control of a commission, as already suggested by the Herald. Let us have a Board of Public Works, with full power to do away with the first and principal evil of a crowded city, with only a single outlet, by opening the Fourth, Fifth and Seventh avenues to the Bat tery, thus making four Broadways in lieu of one. Then let every city railroad charter granted to private speculators be repealed, and a good ayatem of railroads be adopted for the whole city, under control of the commis sion, and run at the lowest possible charge to the travelling prfMic. The people will then be able to> roacb by cars every portion of the city through good btcoad avenues, and business men will uet be subjected, hs now, to vexa tious blockades and delays in the most valu able hours of tbe d?j. In addition to those advantages to the iMMses the taxjnyers will then'receive-the benefit of tbe city franchises, which at present go to enrich political ' rlugs" and shrewd lobby speculators. This is a re-r form worthy the attention of an enlightened Legislature, and the people will look to ? their representatives at Albany for prompt relief. Tm: Penalties or Mwuovkisnmket.?We-se? that a permanent increase of the British ormy has been derided upon. This is the logical consequence of the refuail to satisfy the just grievances of Ireland,, ae well as .lie equally just dent wnl of the musses in England, for on ext-nsioo of Ihe franchise. "111110 or ruiaP are the alternatives of the British ari-t'ocracyx There is no middle toru? which can satisfy their inordinate pride and selilshness. Sooner than concede to the Irish people the abolition of the Church establishment and secure lo them tho laws which are necessary to protect them against the grinding exactions of ab sentee landlords, they prefer commencing against them a war of extermination, in which a revival of the barbarities practised in the Indian campaignr are threatened. They do this without counting the oost. They are entering upon just such a war as we have been engaged in against the South, with un accumulated debt heavier than that with which we put dowu the rebellion. How can they expect lo be able to stagger on under tbe weight, of tbe additional burdeua which the increased military expendi tures they are about to incur in Ireland will place upon their shoulders! l)o they imagm ? that these expenditures will be limited to Irish soil! If they do they are couuling too much on on* forbearance. Let. them but attempt lo put in force their "stamping out" process, and nothing can save them from a war with this country. So intense and widespread will lie the indignation oansed by It thai no adminis tration will venture to resist tho feeling which will prompt an immediate invasion of Canada. Sneh are the dangers which confront the men who now have charge of the destinies of the British empire. Should tlioy bo reckless enough to listen to the sanguinary promptings of their terrors they will discover that they have given the last blow to the domination which has been built up on anoh an amount of injustice ond suffering. Critical Position ok Fr\m ? Movkuxkts or Queen Isabella.?We have uews simultaneous ly by the cable that peace will aooa be de clared between Spsln, Chile and Peru, and that Queen Isabella is about to visit the royal family at Lisbon this week. Domestic coinp.i cations have luum gathering around her Ma jesty's government?urged on aod secretly fomonted, no doubt, by the ageuls of Napo leon?which compel a speedy conclusion to the foreign war in South America, thus enabling Isabella to complete those "preparations to resist an insurrection at home" of which we have recently hoard so much. It was stated some tiiuo ago that the Queen contemplated leaving Madrid in alarm at the growing evi dences of popular disquietude; but whether her visit to Lisbon bus any connection with these fears we do not know, ll may be that there is a general family difficulty to be sett I d between (he royal house* ni Spain and Por tugal, with a view to counteract 'he scheme*of Napoleon wi'h reference to a union ot the two drowns and the construction of a grand Iberian kingdom under the house ol Bragsn*'?

If consumers' con! companies on the plan of those formed last year could be more generally organized we hare no doubt that during the severest portion of the winter the price could be lorced down to four or at most fire dollars per ton. The oext monopoly to strike at is that of the gas companies. II is monstrous that with coal at encb a low pnice we should still be paying as much for our gitf as at any period during the war.

All such schemes, if found to be prao- - ticuble, should receive liberal encouragement from Congress. There is little doubt of the ultimate suceess of rival lines, bat the experi ence gained by the transmission of news from Ireland should convince us of the neeessity of securing such-lines as speedily as possible.
