In conversation with a Wend a few days nnee, I 'resident Johnson remarked that it was a mistaken idea that the recent election* had established the fact that the coming Congress would be more radical lhan ever. The elections had indeed perpetuated the power of Confess, bnt the U1H. elections had established the fact that the constitutional amendment could not be passed. Was it not therefore the dnty and interest of both parties to unite on .some middle plan that would admit the South on term* satisfactory to the North f Although the President did not distinctly u-fer to t he plan of univerml suffrage afld universal amnesty, ho wns understood to allude to it. ?

Mr. John. ? ,.!i does not admit that any part of his y of restoring the southern States remains to be done, so far as the Executive has power to aet. lie claims that all that n mains unlinihlicdXd his plan is the admission of legally .elected loyal represent*, tiv. s, and that work belongs soL'ly to Con. gress. In the message Mr. Johnson will rccom nit nd several amendments to the constitu. ti.?n. Among them the abolishment oftho electoral college and the election of president and vice-president directly by the vo u-rs at large, without regard to State boundaries. | We have several times mentioned in the IHsjKttch that Mr. Johnson was in favor of this change.) * Another amendment suggested la tho eh < t i??n of United States Senator by tho voters at large in the several States, instead of electing them by the State Legis. laturcs; and still another amendment Mined is the appointment of judges of tho I nited States Supreme Court for a terra of twelve years each ? one-third of the entire number to be appointed every four years. TbcSo amendments were suggested somo years ago in the United States Senate by Mr. Johnson whilst he was a member of that !>ody. The amendment proposing the lection of President by the voters at large, :n the opinion of Mr. Johnson, will effectually regulate the question of suffrage within the States by making it of imperative interest that each State include as many voters as possible, and thus in proper time the franchise will be extended to the colored people. There are some who l>elieve the President will discuss the universal amnesty question, and propose some action thereon l>y Congress, but those best advised underhand that Mr. Johnson holds that under the Constitution the Executive has sole '-.u r to grant amnesty and pardons, and thcreiore he will not propose action on that subject by Congress. considerable portion of the messago devoted to foreign alliiirs, and especially > the controversy with the British Government about the Alabama claims, the so? died Mexican protectorate, and the action "i our Government with reference to the jiailuru of Napoleon to withdraw a portion] l his troops from Mexico during this I month.

The Republican papers of this city are taking ground i;ain>t the impcachmeut of President Johnson. Congress being master of the situation, they contend that so violent a step as impeachment is wholly unnecessary. And the\ declare further, that Massachn setts III not follow Butler in this matter. Still, there are largo numbers of the party who would be glad to see the President disgraced (!) by impeachment. < hie of these is a minister in a leading liurch here, who yesterday prayed that Itiod would " remove our wicked rulers."

Trouble between France and Ike1 I n lied Official Outfflvln**. The National Republican of yesterday nays (and gold goes up) ; It is no secret that the Emperor of the French has disregarded his pledge to withdraw from the soil of Mexico one-third of his troops in that country this fall. We assert only what we kaow when we announce the astounding feet that Napoleon, regardless of international courtesies, decided that all bis troops should remain In Mexico to strengthen the Austrian usurper, Maximilian, without notifying the Government of the United 8tates of his intention. Upon learning officially the purpose of the French Emperor, an earnest protest against his action was forwarded to him through our Minister at the French Court, which will afford sufficient evidence to the Americas people of the promptness of the President and Secretary of State in. indi. eating the displeasure of this Government at so groes an act of Impropriety as that committed by the French Emperor, and their determination to pw?WF demand < FrowOvtpMUl B?poit?r. vxMim itmwir Erawot*ii COVFEftlVCt MIT& SIXTH DAT. Norfolk, November 27, 1866. Conference met this morning, according to adjournment, and was called to order by the presiding bishop. The opening exercises were conducted by the Rev. George W. Nollcy. The proceedings of yesterday were read and approved. Rev. Messrs. Martin and Tebbs, of the Baltimore Conference, were introduced, and invited to seats. Rev. William H. Christian asked supernumerary relations for John F. Poulton. Granted. Rev. H. B. Cowlcs asked a location for Rev. Peyton R. Duval. Granted. Rev. P. A. Peterson asked that Rev. T> A. Pierce be placed on the superannuated list. Granted. Rev. D. P. Wills asked for a supernumerary relation for Rev. B. T. Ames. Granted. Rev. P. A. Peterson, treasurer of the delegation to the General Conference, made a detailed report of his account,, showing a balance in band of $83.23. D'Arcy Paul, treasurer of the joint Board of Finance, made the following report : TiaOIKia OOKFBKB1VCI COLISCTIOKS. Missionary collections : Whole amount received ..$8,059 64 Applied as follows : For domestic missions 1,031 64 For foreign missions 1,103 00 For missionary debt 25 oo ?3,059 64 Conference fnnd : Whole amount received $3,220 91 Applied as follows : To superannnated ministers, and the ? widows and orphaus of deceased preachers 2,450 31 To supernumerary and deficient preachers, and stationery 779 60 $3,229 91 Which, on motion, was adopted. The charactor of Rev. John W. Hildrup was passed on examination, and he was admitted in Conference on trial. The same action was taken in the case of Joshua L. Garrett. Rev. William H. Christian asked a location for Joseph A. Crowder. Granted. Rev. John E. Edwards, from the Committee on Sunday schools, made a report, recommending a greater interest in the matter, and urging its great importance as an an auxiliary to the Church. Adopted. Rev. W. W. Bennett, from the Publishing Committee, made a report on matters referred to them, and propose that D'Arcy Panl, R. M. Smith, and Robert J. Christian be appointed a committee to establish an agency in the city of Richmond. They also recommend that the Christian Advocate be committed to individual management and responsibility, with all its good will, &c., and that the Rev. W. W. Bennett be appointed by the Bishop to take charge of it. They also recommend that Revs. W. W. Bennett and James A. Duncan close the business of the paper under its former management. They pay a high compliment to Rev. J. A. Duncan, its former editor, for his gratuitous work of four years in the editorial chair, and the interest which he has taken in its behalf. The report from the Sunday School Committee shows that much has been done in this department. They have aided, during the past fifteen months, 900 schools within the bounds of this Conference. The question of the change of ownership of the Advocate gave rise to much discussion, which was partioijwited in by Messrs. Bennett, Whitehead, Ilead, Duncan, Cowles, Drs. Lee and Nollcy, the latter of whom moved that the roll be now called, and each member answer to his name, stating how much money he will become personally responsible for, to enable the debts due by the paper to be paid off before its management passes from under the control ol' the Conference. About $1,500 was subscribed among the ministers present. The Rev. J. A. Duncan pledged himself for $200. On motion of Rev. W. II. Christian, Messrs. Bennett and Duncan were appointed a committee to collect any additional amount that may bo necessary to liquidate the debt. Dr. William A. Smith introduced Colonel Thomas C. Johnson, President of Randolph Macon College, and was happy, in resigning his charge, to know that it fell into such good hands ; and the more so because Colonel Johnson was a graduate of this institution, having completed his studies there in 1842. Colonel Johnson responded, remarking that he had certainly been introduced to the Conference by Dr. Smith in kinder terms than his merits deserved. Since receiving notification of his election to the presidency of Randolph Macon College he bad been incessantly laboring for three weeks so as ta arrange to meet the Conference. He was now happy to stand before them. He could say with truth that in accepting the position offered he had been guided by no selfish motives. In a money point of view, he could make more by pursuing his avocation as a lawyer than he can as president of a college. He had now arrived at that age when ho felt it his duty to try and lay up treasure in heaven, and ho thought he would be doing so in educating the young men of the country. In conducting the affairs of this institution he asked the hearty cooperation of the men of this Conference. ' Randolph Macon is a child of the Virginia Conference. He saw around him some of the men who laid its foundation. You know, gentlemen, What masters laid its keel ; What workmen formed Its ribs of steel ; Who made each most, and sail, and rope. What anvils rang, what hammers beat, In what a forge, with what~a heat, . Was shaped this anchor of your hope. This child of yours has furnished you preachers, bishops, teachers, professors, representatives at the bar, on the beftch, and in legislative halls. For the last twenty-four years I have met the graduates of this college In the West and in the Sonth, and I hare always found them to be gentlemen, and nearly all active Christian men. She has well repaid all your care and trouble, and now that her fortunes have been impaired by the war, she Is none the less your child, and rather deserves your sympathy and support now than ever before. As a representative of the faculty, I must ask this Conference to solicit in behalf of the college the support of the Baltimore Conference. Under the auspices of these two Conferences I do not donbt that we shall revive its fortunes and once more establish its usefulness. Raised and educated in this State, I moved to the West nearly a quarter of * century ago, so that I am in all essentials a western man ; bnt I have come back to take my position among you once more as a citizen of Virginia, on the invitation of my old mother, to guide her fortunes. And, in retiring from yoor presence, permit me to ssk the kindly sympathy and assistance of every man and woman before me belonging to this polished and enlightened State. Bishop Doggett (who bad previously taken the chair) remarked that it was a happy chanoe that ha should be }n the this time. He was chaplain at the college when Colonel Johnson graduated, and he had never parted with a student with more regret. Rev. W. McGoe, fraternal messenger from the Methodist Protestant Church, appeared M the stand, and said he bore the fraternal greetings of his. brethren to this Oeofbrenice. His denomination were JfeOuxAsU. "There 'was do difference beend trouhCe. Thai bister? ?ew befemgs to the peel; bit better days have dawned upon tut He pipe of peaoe ta bow smoked aronn^four camn-flrea." Those relations were originated In 1867, in bis own Conference, nod wo were welcomed forward by your Conference in 1859 with every expression of lore end fraternity. In the origin of that fraternal relation we did not suppose there would be any propositlbn for a reilnion. Tonr Conference proposed it, and we responded to it ; bnt though the light lias been breaking in the distance, the common ground has not yet been found. We want no schism in our Church. Our desire is to move altogether , and we are endeavoring to bring all our people to one mind in the matter, and with great hopes of success. We are essentially one in the belief of the common doctrines and usages of Methodism ; we are one in name, as in heart and aim. Dr. Lee made a suitablo response. Dr. Smith moved that one or more members of this Conference be appointed to the Virginia Annual Conference of the Methodist Protestant Church as fraternal messengers, and bear to them our cordial Christian greetings, and to whom should be committed the subject of a closer union between the two bodies. Adopted. Rev. W. W. Bennett and the stationed minister at Granby-street church were appointed. Rev. W. W. Bennett moved the appoint, ment of a fraternal messenger to confer with the members of the Christian Church with a view to reunion between the two societies. Adopted. Rev. Robert 0. Button was appointed messenger. Rev. Robert O. Burton asked leave of I absence and permission to give his vote in advance on the change of name and lay representation. Granted. Rev. J. R. Finley asked for re'admission. I Grartcd. On motion, the report of the Committee on Memoirs was made the order of the day for 11 o'clock to-morrow. RELIEF SOCIETY OP THE VIRGINIA CONFERENCE. Bishop Doggett vacated the chair for a few moments to allow tho Relief Society of the Virginia Conference, Dr. Smith presidcnt,.to make its annual report. The report of the treasurer shows a balance in hand of 94,125 of capital stock, and a com. mittee was ordered to attend to the distribution of the proceeds of the year. The election of officers being in order, Rev. Nelson Head was unanimously elected president, Rev. B.H. Cowles treasurer, and Rev. P. A. Peterson secretary. The Society then adjourned. THE CONFERENCE AGAIN. Bishop Doggett resumed the chair. Rev. Mr. Judkins moved that the report of the Publishing Commttiee be adopted as a whole. The motion was adopted. On further motion, the presiding Bishop was requested to appoint Rev. W. W. Bennett as editor of the Christian Advocate for the ensuing year. Rev. N. Ilead asked leaves of absence for Revs. WiUiam G. Cross and George II. Ray, and that they be allowed to leave their votes on certain questions. Granted. Rev. Mr. Cowles stated that the Rev. William Coulling being very ill, requested a special interest in the prayers of the Conference. He then moved that the Conference should now spend a few moments in prayer for the afflicted brother. Adopted. Bishop Early very impressively led the Conference in an invocation for the relief of the afflicted brother. At its conclusion the Conference united in singing that beautiful hymn of Moore's : " Come ye disconsolate wliere'r you languish." After benediction, the Conference adjourned to meet to-morrow morning at 9 o'clock. H.

In the Episcopal Methodist Conference to-day, (1 use the new name,) the recommendations of the General Conference held in New Orleans last winter in regard to a change in the form of government so as to admit lay members into the ruling bodies of the Church, and in regard to a change of the name of the Chnrch, were both ratified so far as this Conference caa do it. I learn that every Annnal Conference which has been held up to this time has taken the same course. The former change will probably add a large number of Methodist Protestants to the Chnrch ; and the latter, by dispensing with thesufflx "South," will relieve the ministers and members of the Church in Maryland, Kentucky, West Virginia, Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana, and perhaps other States, of the odium which attaches to a sectional or political designation of an ecclesiastical body. It is proper to add that some of the ablest members of the Conference opposed this action. The appointmente have not yet been announced by the Bishop, but I have reason to believe he has made them, and only waits, according to custom, for the end of the session to make them public. II.

All the London papers to-day, except iho Poet, simultaneously nse strong and bitter language against the Fenians, and warn them that they will receive no mercy. The Times says the rebellion must be stamped out as we stamped the cattle plagues. The Xtm says England must put down relentlessly the seditious movements which her misrule has stirred up. The Ttltgraph declares that measures must be taken which will render it certain that the very first symptoms of revolt shall be stamped out with au iron heel. The Star says that Englishmen dread the necessity of crushing any rebel movement. The Standard says that captured robbers should certainly be left to the just ricor of the law, and there should be no hope for them from the United States. The Morning Herald, referring to the condfmued Fenians In Canada, ?ny? that there should be no loophole of escape for future offenders. Troops aro being sent to Ireland, and gunboats are sailing for Irish ports. From France and Italy by the Cable. Pabis, November 27.?

When, at a late hour last night, an extra appeared In the streets with the exciting news from Ireland, the effect upon the city was unequalled since the news of the great victories of the late war. Places of amusement were deserted by people anxions to hear and discuss the events. Hotels and other places of resort were thronged by "eager and excited persons, who freely Indulged in congratulations and hopeful expressions. The Fenians rushed to the meeting-places of their circles, hoping to get additional information. Telegrams were sent to the circles in distant cities, and enthusiastic responses were instantly returned. Stephens, the head-centre, was nowhere seen, and it is confidently believed that he has reached Ireland. It is said that the treasury of the Fenians was never in better condition than at this moment.
