NATION CONSPIRACY, many that the latest opiu .e Court—overthrowing as it ry trials of the war in which .rties, will in its results be .. jfiy so because ineu hope that the dark mystery which hangs around the as sassination of our land’s best beloved Abraham Lincoln—may now be cleared up. Men would t. astonished if it were known bow widely the conviction is spread hereabouts, that a more fearful depth of sin is to be unfolded aud ex posed in connection with this deed than has oe u spoken of above one s “liati d heath* Perhaps however wc might not he surprised as (hose who hold convictions ot guilt in high pl ices now ouly hinted at, are hut of the same ‘'mould and form” of opinion of thousands elsewhere. It has been said “be sure thy Bin n .H fiml thee out." Surratt testifies to the truth of the utterance, for the weight of his great crime was more than his feeble soul could bear. But my allusion to the Supreme Court’s decision grow "out of the hope enter tained that a full trial before a civil court ot tnose who remain yet unhung may develop® the facts in this great and still mysterious crime. Titeie is little doubt that Sp angler, Mudd, and Laughlin, will be brought here trom Dry Lor tugus, on a writ of habeas corpus. Ihe Chief Justice has, it is believed,decided that the Su spcine Court has jurisdiction and that lie will therefore issue the writ. Tho application is husod on the illegality of the tribunal condemn in''them and does not involve their guilt-or otherwise. They can he indicted by the Grand Jury, and in ah probability will be. ihe other assassin, John II. Surratt, and these, the subordinate tools of the plot, are then all likely to be in Washington together. There are not wanting those incredulous ones, who have watched this matter from the beginning, that believed Surratt will yet find some favor ing way of escape from arrest or into death be fore trial. Tho agitation and excitement among pro ivbel circles here, aud some that ought not to be hut to all intents and purposes are so, about the arrest of Surratt does not lessen.— The rather is it on the increase. Especially ire certain religious influence at work, lte hgious I mean in the sense of organization on ly. A principal witne-,8 in this case has been approached by priests and urged not to testily against Surratt, on tho ground of his con nexion with the church. Perhaps they fear what may bo told of the nature of the plot, and oi the aid and comfort extended to the fleeing assassin, whose tearful crime was yet ctndoned and succored by those wearing tho priestly garb. It is believed that the Frtuch-Canadian, by whom Surratt was discovered and denounced, will be found to know more of this plot aud its abettors than we now suppose. That pecu liar threat of Surratt’s, “That he would live long enough to give a good account of Andrew Johnson,” is expected to receive a peculiar il lustration by means ol information it is believ ed the Canadian can give; sufficient at least to indicate other sources of information. There is much of mystery to clear up, and there now seems a fair road open into its heart. THE LAST MOVE IN “MY POLICY.” There is a movement under way to secure the ratification of the constitutional amend ment by at least one of the unrepresented States. It may seem strange, hut ihe move is sustained at the White House. That alone will make people suspicious of good there from. It is well known that both Johnson and Sew ard arc in high hopes oi fomenting a division in the Kepublicau ranks by such a movement, combined with the expected decision of the Supreme Court on the Test Oath’s unconstitu tionally. The opinion expressed by Senators iVade and Sherman, uud Kepresentativo Spaulding, and believed to be entertained by others, that the Union men in Congress are hound in honor to admit a ratifying State, with the decided dissent thereto expressed by Sumner, Howard, Brown and others, is the g ouuu work of this hope of the accidental tenant of the White House. Within a week certain prominent Alabamians have left here for Montgomery. 'The so-called State .Legis ia utc meets there on the 15th proximo. The constitutional amendment has been oace re jected by this body, as it is believed under di rect influence of Uie .President. Gov. Parsons was the agent then used, and is now in the new change. The amaidmcnt it to be rati Ht'H riie piograinme is aLl arranged, even tu the men wuu m that event are to he run lor the Sjtatc and Federal offices. The Governor ut the State is to be a man named John T. Mor gan, brother of the rebel General and an able and influential luwyer who has never held an office or taken the oath of allegiance, and jo nut, therefore, disqualified by tne third sec tion of lire amendment. Yet, next to Wm. L. Yancey, Morgan was tne most influential of all j.untie men in rnduoing the secession of Alabama. Me is among the bitterest of bis i.dan to-day. in ISliU he was on the Brceken ridgo Electoral Ticket for the State at large.— Another man, spoken of lor If. S. Senator un der the limits which the amendments reudsr necessary, is the present Attorney General, Mr. Saudford. tie was an influential rebel, but held no office, and can technically take the oath. Other men are named, who meet the test, so far as the letter is concerned, hut v. ho in spirit are further removed from us than those who now claim seats in Oougress from that State. APPOINTMENTS IN THE AH MY. There is nothing which requires a severer overhauling than the fist of appointments in the new regular army. In violation of the law a large nmnlier of appointments have been made from civil lifts. Some of these have been made by the influence ol those from whom better things might have been expected, but a majority of the nominations have in all proba bility been paid for. There is a regular trade and tariff of prices lor such positions. Let me show you how in other ways the law is violated, in spirit, if not in letter. I know personally the parties, having served with both. A gallant officer, one of the most capable ef the men who have risen from the ranks, appli ed li»r a position in the new cavalry regiments. He would hive taken a second lieutenancy, though after over four years’ service in the volunteers he was mustered out a BrevetBrig ailitir. He served for seven years in the regu lar army as orderly seTgeant and sergeant ma jor. Of good education, well read, a quick and pungent writer, thoroughly posted in all staff duties, and above all, one of the best of cavalry officers, the army was his natural and proper place. Bathe was not a Johnsonite.— Another man from Ihe same State was an ap plicant. He had served with no especial ad vantage to the service as a lieutenant, till nearly the end of the war, when he was dis missed the service. He was re-instated, right fully, too, I presume. He came here last win ter,Vnd has hung on ever since. At heart a radical, he signed the call for the Cleveland Convention, and has hung on to the coat tails of a general officer connected therewith. He was appointed to the commission which had been refused the other gallant and far more capable man. The nominee’s fitness, or rather unfitness, may be judged by the fact that ho failed to pass the Examining Board. The tests, too, are very simple, hat this candidate did not meet the simplest. However, this seems to avail nothing, as the nomination is sent in and h» will lie confirmed. Latterly tlii3 persistent wight has made friends ot a radical Senator, who has obtained for him a doorkeeper s place and will doubtless urge his confirmation. This zeal is probably explained by the fact that tiic expectant lieutenant acts as Mr. Senator’s purveyor or steward. When the question was asked ‘how he would pass the Board,’* it was explained that if the applicant came hack to it confirmed, he would probably be passed, without further remark than they supposed he had read up since his last appearance before them. Of course the re ply to such au interrogatory woul.f be affirma tive. This is one of the ways in which our regular ai ruy is (not) being in tdc the nursery of a high patriotism and fitness.
