The affair is still lending. A letter from Havana gives a fearful account of the ravages of cholera. There had been as many as three hundred cases a day, nearly half of which proved fatal. On the 10th inst. there were fifly.two oaies and twenty-one deaths. A Florida committee petitioned General Meade to postpone the Florida Convention for thirty days lo correct registration frauds, but after telegraphing Gen.

Mr. Bontwell, of Massachusetts, in the course of his remarks in the House of Representatives on Friday, said that he regretted the failure of the impeachment question last month. He considered it probable that President Johnson would be nominated by the Democratic party for re election, ami in that event he would be a formidable antagonist to the Republicans. Property to the value of $S0O,000 has lecn destroy ed by fire in Chicago since January 1. The lat contlagration was that which broke out on Thursday night, at 197 'Lake street, nnd consuming the building and doing great destruction to the adjoining structures, from No. 193 to 199. The loss, which exceeds $200,000, is in great part covered by insurance. The extreme cold weather of last week has formed an ice bridge below the Falls of Niagara, and hundreds of visitors arc crossing. The ice is of great thickness and eolidlty, and bids fair to remain for some time. Visitors now have an opportunity to walk safely over the madly raging rur-renUbeneath, and at the same time get a line view of the Falls. Isaac Koifcr, the young pedestrian, who undertook tbejalmost unaccoinplishable task of walking one hundred consecutive bourn without rest or sleep, on a wager of six hundred dollars, at Pittsburg, after walking seventy-right honrn and forty-eight minutes, was compelled to succumb to the tfrain'iipon his uvertaxed'.eystem at eleven o'clock Friday night, at which hour he fell to the floor intensihte. He was immediately placed under charge of some physicians and restored to consciousness. Keifer is but nineteen years of age, and had Imt little or no training for the task. On the night of the 7th instant, a negro woman named Fanny Morgan was arrested at Grenada, Miss., under the charge of murdering her two infant children, aged respectively five and teven years, by stabbing them with a knife. One was stabbed through the heart, and the other the knife passed through the neck and down through 3t!e breast, indicting a fearful wolind, laying the whole body open. An inquest was held, and the woman arrested. She confessed the crime and went ami showed the jury where the knife was hid under the corner of a fence. Her reason for committing this bloody and unnatural act in . said to be that ehe was engaged to be married to a colored man, who refused to take her unlew she rid herself of the children. The woman waa taken by the military and delivered, over to the-oivil authorities, and lodged" n jail at tffeevllle. Her paramour Las net yet been arrested they are after him. Tho OhioRadical Congressmen are much exercised over the report that the Legialajj tnrc of that Slate willJre-district it 66 aa to secure a fair representation. Some of these. Radicals talk of riaraimj a bill in Congress (o prevent the change, but it is all talk. The House Committee on Retrench ments has finished its consideration of the report of the CommiESioncr of Internal Revenue, giving the reasons why the scheme known as the Gellyshurg Asyium for Invalid Soldiers was exempted -irom payment of special tax, and in the course ot the .present week Gen. VanWyck will make a rejvJrt, giving a history of the scheme, and concluding with a resolution requesting the Commissioner to revoke the permit so that taxes and license can becol-lected from said association the same as if no permit had ever been granted. ; J l; Strong efforts arc being made lo prevent the contraction of the power of the Freedmen's Bureau in Tennessee and Kentucky, as is designed in a circular letter of Maj. Gen. Howard, and -approved by General Grant, Secretary of War ad interim, it is represented lo the Department that a ne- eeiwilv exists for retaining the officers of the Bureau in those Stales, instead of com milting its a f lairs to the administration of army ofbeers exclusively, ine Tennessee Congressional delegation have called on Secretary Stanton, having in view thesame obiect. and he will at once consider the subject. The Washington enrreipondent of the St. Louis Brpulticmi says in his letter of the 17th instant : "1 lie absence ot an oi-ficial action by the President in relation to the reinstatement of Secretary Stanton, has left the so-called imbroglio without nnv new facts, or even speculations. It is le-irned lo-riieht. from the President him self, that he issued no order or proclama- lion, and that he does not propose to do anything of the kind. It may, therefore, be'advisedly and safely asserted that Mr. Stanton will continue to act in his full capacity as Secretary of War until his successor is nominated and conGrmed by the Senate. This is inevitably the result of the much talked of controversy." A Washington telegram of the 18th inst, says: There is no longer any doubt as to Grant's -views of the new reconstruction bill. Representative Orth. of Indiana, said to him last night, in the presence of a large company at the bpeakers reception, that the House would put the bill through riehl awav. Grant immediately replied that lie sincerely hoped not; that he saw no necessity for it, and he should be. very Borry to see it passed. A very nrominent Republican, in speaking of the new bill to-day, said that if it passed the House by a strong enough majority to show the sense of that body,here would perhaps be no necessity for its passage in theSenate. The inference from his language was that the real object ia introducing the measure was to stimulata the President in the exe culinn of the existing reconstruction laws, OUK REDUCED RATES. It affords us great pleasure to acknowl edge the general satisfaction with which tho announcement of a reduction in the subscription price of the Union and Dispatch is hailed by our patrons and the public We ran only reassure them that nor motto is " to live and let live." We design to economise expenses in every wav consistently with the interests of our generous patrons, so that we may be enabled to present the largest and best selection -f reading matter. Wo shall continue, as heretofore, in all our editions, to present a larger amount of news, political, 'commercial and miscellaneous reading than any other journal ever published in Middlo Tennessee. Tho reduced price, by no means, implies an inferior article. On the contrary, we nro perfecting arrangements by which we will be able to present a stilimorfe acceptable paper tOjOtfri readers. We repeat tho terms or the Union and Dispatch as follows: Daily, per annum " lur six months... ...S10 00 ... 5 00 .... 2 50 5 0(1 -.2 50 1 2Ti throe months Tri-Weekty, iter annum for ix months ' " three months-Single copies five cents. Ocn New Terms. The substantial appreciation on tho part of the reading public of our course in reducing the terms of subscription and sales of the Union and DispATcn, was gratifyingly manifest on Sunday. Our edition for that day was unusually large larger perhaps than any daily in tho city for the past twolvc months and it wentofflike hot cakes. Our regular subscriptions yesterday in tho city show a greater increase than any day for the past two years, and we are assured that the reading public is with us in this movement of economy and retrenchment. The New York Tribune is absolutely ferocious. Greeley is making up far nil his trespasses ngainst Jacobins law and gospel. His "universal nmnesty" and "Davis bail-bond," and other sympathetic crochets are being atoned for. He says, " the next card may be impeach. mont" " If the President makes himself an ' impediment," ho must be swept away" and thus he raves, after his pe culiar manner, through ono and a half of his broad columns. He is vaulting to the forofront of the revolutionary ranks. He sees the dangerous position the Radicals occupy, nnd knows they cannot retreat. His only hope is to go with them, or split with them. He chooses the for-, mer. He is like tho rest of them will " pour the sweet milk of concord into hell," and pitcb the country in after it, to carry their point, and retain power. Tt is stated that Grant is exerting his influence ngainst the last revolutionary measures oi Congress. Why does he not repel with patriotic indignation the atrocious proposition to make him dicta tor, as Washington did ? Caisar thrice refused the crown, before he banished libertv from Rome. Washington was nover approached upon the subject but once. An Excluded Mbmber. A negro girl wus expelled from a church in Louisville a week or two ago. She afterwnrda ap pared and took her sent in tho "amen oornor," and was summarily ejected She sued the ejectors for damages, and brought a witnesswho jmve the following luminous testimony ; "I war standine rite'croiw from de church. and saw sister Breckinredge thrown out ob de church, and if it hadn tbisen lorue iron railin' ehe would ab fell dofln and broke her neck, I was once a member ob dat church, and waa 'nallxd ktse I said de preacher was wrong in preaching dat when Christ war eight yearsold he war practicing law in de San Hibian Ilands." u1. t " JroBE John A.

He deposed Gov. Jenkins beennso that gentleman .would not issue a warrant upon the State Treasurer 1010,000, for. which there was no authority in any law of the State or the United States. And he Tcmoved the Treasurer, because that officer would not violate his oath and, Jurnish the money upon his11 requisition, ne sent officers of the army to take charge of the Governor's office and treasury, who would administer these offices according to Meade's direction. But it seems they did not secure the money they expected to find. The Macon Journal and Messenger of the 18th inst saysi . "We learn from. a, gentleman who came over from Milledgeville last night, that a party of citizens assembled at-the .xecu- tive Mansion the night before and called out Governor Jenkins, who addressed them in a manner highly creditable to himself. "He told them that the funds of the State had been removed to New York, and he should light them before the Supreme Court of the United . States, and do so out of no despite whatever to the powers that sought to control them. "His speech in every respect parlook of the calm, digmhed, and high-toned Chris tian character of the man.

"The same demand was made of the Postmasler, and also refused. MEJIPMIJTJ irDOEsrA' OlfoXTEMPr. The Judges in Memphis must regard themselves as a very superior sort of people, not to be looked at or talked about except in the most obsequious manner. Judge Hunter, of the Criminal Court, has issued so many attachments against the writers of the Memphis Avalanche for contempt, that they say in their issue of the ISth inst they had been arrested twice within the previous three days for contempt, which makes some eight or ten times they have been arrested since this farce commenced, Judge Leonard, of the County Court of Shelby county, seems to have caught the infection; for on the 17th inst., ho or dered an attachment to be issued against John Somervillc nnd Mr. J. J. Dubois, for contempt of court. This contempt. case grew out of an incident whioh is, re lated by the Avalanche of tho 18th inst, as follows Yesterday morning a difficulty occurred in the hall opposite the office of Judge Leoi.ard, between him and John Homer ville, in which his Honor was incontinently knocked down by the young disciple of Blnclrstone. It appears that Mr. Somer ville, accompanied by Julius Dubois, waited unon Leonard, who is acting as Probate Judge, on some business of an administrative nature, which was not disposed of, After Leonard lefl his office, he was approached by Somerville, who asked of him some explanation of remarks derogatory to htm. winch he had been told that Leonard had previously made. He said that he had no recollection oi ma&ing me rt-mjirta ; but if he did make them he would reiterate them, and did so, when Mr. Somerville knocked him down. While arising from this unjudicial position, he endeavored to draw a pistol, and was again knocked down. He finally managed to get to his feet, pistol in hand, but was prevented irom using if, if such was his intention, by the interfer ence of bystanders. Pistols were drawn on both sides, but the appearance of Sheriff Winters upon tho scene quieted matters, and the irate gentlemen went in different directions, and probably neither satisfied with the result ot the anair. These Memphis Judges will bring the courts into utter contempt, if their ridicu lous course be not curbed. In the days before the war had thrown to Iho sur face tho characters that now hold high carnival in the places of power, we had none of this upstart dignity. Tun Last Usuhpations. Tho latest phase of Jacobin violence in Congress upon the free institutions of America- the gagging of the Supremo Court, the degradation of the executive office to n fifth-rate clerkship, and tho making of Grant military dictator in ten States has startled the popular mind of tho North. The Jbllowing lending Republi can journals are open and decided in their denunciations of these measures': Tho Now York 'Evening Post, the Now York Times, the New York Commercial Advertiser, the Springfield (Mass.) lie publican, the Providence (It. L) Journal, the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser, tho Cincinnati Commercial, and a number of other minor journals of that section. The day is rapidly approaching when the American people, regardless of party, will turn from Radicalism with loathing and abhorrence. a obon" "chance. A negro in the Arkansas Convention said the other day, "Give us the chance of eighteen hundred years like the white man, and we will show what we can do. Upon which tho Louisville Journal ob serves : "But the negroes have had the chance not only of eighteen hundred years, but all the years since Noah's flood. They have had that chance in their own country where God planted them. In Africa they have been unmolested by the white race, except so far as a few of their tribes upon thecoast have been able, after takinsf pris- oners from each other, lo find a market for them with white traders instead of putting them to death. J.et that vaunting Artan- sas netrro point to Africa for exemplifica lions of what his race can do, not only in eighteen hundred years, hnt in a great many additional centuries."

Ed. Matthews. They then decamped, and left young Boykin bound, and no trace of identity of the robbers thus far has been found. No doubt they are more of the "Memphis professionals" on "moral excursions," who sometimes get picked up Tne statistics of the Orthodox Congregational Cbnrch in tbia country are nub lished in the January number of the Cm-grthativnal Quttrterly. The whole number of churches in the United States is 2325, or forty-aeren more than last year. The whole membership is 278,362, nearly 10,000 more than Isit year. AMERICAN JACORI.M.SM. The uaurpeni iand revolutionist in Congrbss are often called Jacobins by th presa Tho term Jacobimls derived frow the name of a club in France, Tvhich was organized during the French Revolution, composed of the most extreme and bloody-minded men of that era. They first proposed to be the "society of the frTeridi'of tho "constitution. Thp mem-- bera were men of ability, and soon numbered amon them the members of the Legislative .Assembly, and then becaraej for a season, the ruling" political power of France. This club took possession of the legislation of the country, and no measure was introduced or law enacted which was not previously, discussed in the Jacobin clab, and received its sanc tion. It was a secret organization, and ruled France with a rod of iron. It finfillv dissolved the Assembly of the people, and established a di rectory which disposed of the lives and liberties of the people at will. It inaugurated the "reign of terror" discarded the religion of God, and set iip a strumpet as the goddess of liberty, an object of adoration and worship. It threw off its friendship for tho constitu tion, and set up the standard of "liborty and equality." It dethroned and be headed the king and queen, and, under the lead of Robcspiere, Danten, Marat, and others like them, swept away 1 rench liberty and deluged the land in the blood of nobles and subjects alike. Whoever was not a Jacobin was a fit subject for the guillotine, and hundres and thou sands of lives paid the forfeit of opposi linn to Jacobinism. The stre-jts of TnrU run red With the blOOU OI tne friends of France, that the tastes of these human monsters might be satiated,, and the spirit of hate, passion and vengeance gratified. It is a grave charge to assert that mem bersoAhe American Congress are justly to be compared with such nn organiza tion. But it is not made without reason Tho French Jacobins had greater reason for their organization than the last and present Congress have had for their ex trnnrdinarv usurpations, ihe Radical j L caucuses and the Reconstruction Com mittae dictato to ConEreM just as the club dictated to France. That committee exerts as much authority, practically, over the nffuirs of tho Union as the direc lory itid over those of France. No such butcher as Robespiere or Marat has yet put his faculties into use by putting patriots to death; but the spirit and principles of the two organizations are the same. The means used are different, but. the aim to abolish tho constitution, to destroy public liberty, and to concentrate the power of the country in the hands of usurpers, and to subject the people to. Congressional decrees, embodying the' very easonce of despotism, i3 tho same that shocked the world nnd subjected France to the lf reign of terror" under Jacobin rule. Those who have read Frenoh history will see the parallel and .similitude, nnd will recognize the justice of the appellation of Jacobin to the extreme Radicals of our own country. The day may be near at hand, too, when radical ferocity may inaugurate scenes of blood in this country similar to those which cursed France arid filled the world witluhorror, The Law- Settles it. Tho law of August fth( 1789,-crcatiug and establish ing the department of war, and authorizing the appointment .thereover of a "principnl officer" (the Secretary, of War) by the President, describes his powers nnd duties as follows : " Who shall perform and execute such duties as shall, from lime io time, be en joined on or entrusted to him by the Presi dent or Ihe United atates, agreeauiy to tne constitution," etc., etc.; the 'clause ending thus: "And furthermore, that the said principal officer shall conduct the business of Said department in such manner as the President of the United States shall, fftm time to time, order or instruct," etc. This law has not yet been repealed, and is still in full force. It settles the fact that Stanton can do no business except that which is enjoined on or entrusted to him by the President, and can transact no business in any manner, except as the President shall, from time to time, order or instruct. If he waits for orders or instructions from the President, his official business will be something of a drag, and if he acts outside of such instructions or orders, his acts will be void. That is the whole case. THE WAY TO CHECK THEM. In an article reviewing the deplorable political and financial condition of the country, Ihe New York Herald concludes as follows : Under such a fearful state of things the national finances must remain disorganized, taxation oppressive and the public credit shaken. Business of all kinds must feel the paralyzing effect. Capital will take alarm and enterprise will cease. Tn fact, the prospect before us is truly alarming if the Radical party in power continue their destructive course and the people do not rise up as one man in their might to check this tide of Jacobinism. Unhappily, these Radicals will be in power for some time to come, as ihey boast of being, to defy public opinion, and they may do a vast deal of evil before another general I election takes place. To hold them in I check, then, the people everywhere should J rise and denounce their conduct. In all i the cities and towns yes, even in every little village there shnnld be public meet inga for this purpose. The country is in n terrible crisis, and the universal voice of the nation should be raised to save the constitution and government from the flacrilegions hands that now threaten to destroy both. The Roeeerv at Jackson. Tenh. Our readers will remember that about six weeks since we chronicled the robbery of five thousand dollars at Jackson, Tenn., by the blowing open of a safe belonging to the Southern Express Company. It will be remembered, also, that John Reagan and James Creighton were arrested here on the charge. After undergoing a preliminary examination before a Justice of the Peace, they were placed under bonds of five thou sand dollare each. Ou ednesdar the grand jury of Madison county, after carefully weighing the evidence in the case, found a true bill, and ordered the recommittal of ihe accused. This done, it was ascertained that Reagan had made his exit for parts unknown, and consequently forfeiture wan taken on his bonds. The Judge of that judicial district has authorized the issuance of an execution on the bond. Creighton, in default of ten thousand dollars bail, is now in "dnrance vile." Mem-phi Atalandie, Jan. IS.

Ve'repeafand reiterate-it in the'.most'em- phatic manner, ne knew it to be,true in all its lerujIA - and oreantu, nrtli t cAauenge Ucneral Urani to aeny it in a single par- iiadar." In this connection we subjoin the re port of an interviewranted by the Presi dent to the correspondent of the New York World, to which our telegraphic dispatches referred a few days ago. This report, we observe, has been republished in Washington, and cannot have escaped Gen. Grant's observation. Being admitted to an audience with the President,. the correspondent says : In response to the inquiry whether nn understanding was had between the President and General Grant previous to the late action of the Senate, Mr. Johnson said : "Gen. Grant, with Gen. Sherman, was here at the While House on Saturday, when the old understanding was reiterated, that lie should cither resign his office as Secretary of War, and surrender it to me in lime to anticipate the Senate's action, or announce his intention to retain the office until the right of the Senate to reinstate Mr. Stanton could be put to the proof. On Sunday it was snegested by Senator Rev- erdv Johnson, with the concurrence of Senator John Sherman, and the understood concurrence of a number of Radical mem bers of both Houses, that if ex-Governor Cox, of Ohio, should be nominated by me forthwith as Secretary ot war, the majority in Congress would be willing to let Mr. Stanlon'a grievance go by the board. I listened tv these suszestions without as senting to them. On Monday I had expected to receive another call from Gen Grant., Gen. Sherman called, but General Grant did not. The latter was here at the reception in the evening. He made no re ference to the action of the Senate in respect to the Secretaryship of the War De partment, of which I myself had not been apprised. It was not until about 11 A. St., Tuesday, that I received the note from Gen. Grant, which has been published, ad vising me that his functions as Secretary of War had ceased." I asked the President whether Mr. Stan ton was or would be recognized by him fthe President) as Secretary of War, in consequence of Monday's resolution by the Senate. Mr. Johnson firmly replied: "No. The Senate," said he, " has passed a resolution, in which it says it 'does not concur' in Mr. Stanton's suspension; but this does not reinstate Mr. Stanton, according lo the law. Tho office of Secretary of War is liable to be reduced to a mere clerkship, He can issue no binding orders except by the direction or with the concurrence of the President, and aa Mr. Stanton will not receive instructions from the Executive, it is apparent that hia asnmption of a chair in the War Department amounts to that nnd nothing more. I now ventured to assume that the President would probably see fit to make a new nomination for Secretary of War within a fihnrt neriod. " At the proper time," said the President, " that will be done. He anticipated, however, that the parties to the nregent difficulty, and particularly Mr. Stanton's intimate friends, wonldsee their way to that gentleman's ultimate re tirement. The President observed, in the course of the brief conversation of which this is the substance, that he had been all along conscious of acting in this matter with strict regard to what he honestly believes to be a constitutional principle. MISSISSIPPI. Platform of the- White Party, Adopted 1r Convention at Jncfeson, Janrmry itr, 1808. Whereas, The people of the ten seceding States, throneh their constitutional con ventions, have declared their ordinances of secession to be null and void ; And whereas, The constitutional conventions of said States recognized the abolition of slavery aa previously declared by the Federal government conceded to freed -men to the protection of life, liberty, and property, common to citizens and conformed their organic law in all respects to the constitution of the United States; And whereas, Said States have elected Representatives and chosen Senators in Concress, in accordance with the laws of the United Stales, who have presented their lawful credentials to Congress only to be denied their constitutional rights of representation in that body; And whereas. The Republican majority now controlling the legislative power of Congress, have established a military despotism oyer ten Stales of the Union, in violation of the federal constitution, in defiance of the Executive and Judicial Departments of the government, threatening the Executive with impeachment, and the Supreme Court with an obrogation of its constitutional powers, and showing a bold and persistent design to maintain their partizan power by the entire overthrow of consuiunonai uiwnjr , And whereas The popular struggle upon these great questions has resulted in a union of all conservative men, without regard to former party ties, and in the establishment of a powerful and successful opposition to this hateful despotism under the lead of the national Democratic party, whose principles and policy on these questions are in strict accordance with the political views of this convention ; therefore, Resolved, That we hereby adopt the name of and the principles for which the said Democratic party are now contending, and that we will do battle under that banner until the Union is restored to a constitutional basis, and all the States are recognized as equal? in the great confederation of American sovereignties. Resolved, That the military bills of Congress for the reconstruction of the so called Rebel State-", are unconstitutional and oppressive in all their particulars, andshould be re.?sted by the unanimous voice "of the people at the ballot-box. Resolved, That for the purpose of accomplishing this result, the people of Mississippi are hereby recopraended to organize a Central Democratic Association, with similar associations in every county, and in all the principal cilies and towns in Ihe State, and to this end, thi3 convention will appoint a central committee of niue, resident at the capital of the Slate, wjth power to complete this party organisation in all respects. ... , Resolved, That the nefarious design of the Republican party in Congress to place the white man of the Southern States nn. der the governmental control of their late slaves, and degrade the Caucasian race as the inferiors of the African negro, is a crime against the civilization of the age which needs only to be mentioned to be scorned by all intelligent minds, and we, thereforecall upon the people of Mississippi to vindicate alike the superiority of their race oyer the negro, and their political power to maintain constitutional liberty. A Prediction. The New York Qm-mereial (Republican), speaking of the revolutionary legislation of the Radical Con gress, predicts that "As snre as day succeeds to night, tins aggressive, vindictive party legislation will, like an overcharged petard, 'hoist the engineers.' For every bad act like this, impairing the independence of the judiciary, Congress makes 'handwriting' on more than one 'wall,' the reading of which will make the knees of modern Belshazzars 'tremble.'"

Grant has gone to Richmond. Gen. Seawell, who traveled from Hatly Springs to Hew Orleans, thence to Vicks-burg via Baton Rouge, reports to the Freedmen's Bureau the unsettled state of affairs. There is no telling what the result may be. Great destitution exists, but no starvation. The planters are without means, and comparatively few plantations are being worked this year, with comparatively more attention to the cereals. Few contracts have, as yet, been made with the freedmen, and there are no organized plan ou the part of planters governing the freedmen's W3ges. A limited amount of rations will be required in the river country of Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas, yet there is little cause for apprehension." In a word, the General repottsmany-bureau agents, and the citizens as worth-. Ies3. He suggests in a card the selection ' of Alfred Kent, as postmaster at Gonzales, Texas; Wm. Heflener, postmaster at Shreveport, Louisiana, and nominates Albert Griddley as general appraiser of merchandise for the South. Thd Secretary of the Treasury sent a communication to the Senate regarding-cotton claims. It appears that the Court t of Claims denied an appeal tbthe Supreme Court, and that tho Secretary, after ascertain as nearly as possible the amount due ' on the judgment of the Court of Claims,-paid them. The Chief Justice was not on the bench to-day on account of sickness, causing ranch disappointment and delaying the McCardle, decisions.

A Fe-man manifesto wa3 found this morning po3ted on the wall of the Mansion House, where it had been affixed despite the vigilance of the police, who have no clue to the perpetrator of this daring acf . The boldness and audacity of the Fenians in the face of the vigorous measures of repression which have been adopted excite much un easiness. Vienna, Jan. 19.

Judge Cooley having addressed a note to General Hancock, inquiring whether he would enforce an ordinance the Constitutional Convention may adopt staying the execution of all processes of the courts until the 1st of January, 1870, except judgments for taxes and wages fcr laborers, the General in reply calls attention to tire, fourth and eighth sections of the act of March, 1S67, defining the powers of the convention, and says that from these provisions it is clear that the couvention is clothed with the extra ordinary power of framing a constitution and civil government, but that it possessed no authority to deal with subjects of ordinary legislation, except to levy and provide for the collection of taxes and pay its officers, members, etc Aa the ordinance to which vou refer in your letter is entirely foreign lo the framing of a constitution and civil government, it appears to the Major General commanding that such an ordi nance, if passed by the convention, would be without any validity. The btate Auditor addressed a commu nication to Gen. Hancock, statingthat taxe3 imposed by the Constitutional Convention cannot be collected lthrough the ordinary process of collecting the State taxes, and that the State Collectors of the parishes of Orleans and Jefferson report that the tar-payers have generally refused to pay the tax, and reters the whole matter to ueneral Hancock for action. Gen. Hancock, in reply, refers the Auditor to an ordinance making it his duty to superintend the collection of taxes, and says if does not appear, from the Auditor's statement, that any process for the collection of taxes had been issued, or any steps taken, except a notice in the newspapers and a demand for payment which had been refused, that no resort had been had to coercive means to inforcc the payment of taxes pointed out by tho law, which it is the Auditor's duty to direct tho tax collectors to do. so that when this is done and forcible resistance made the Major General commanding will, npon its being reported to him, take prompt measures to vindicate the supremacy of the law. THE JACOBINJJSUBPATI0NS. The Modes of Popular Resistance The Jeopnrdy of Pnblic Credit. From the Albany (K. T.) Arguj. The usurpations of Congress, tho proposed dictatorship of Grant, the oblitera lion of the Supremo Court, and the de struction of the executive functions alarm the country not less by their direct conse quences than by their indirect effects. What is to become of law and industrial security and public credit, if these crime proyoke an outbreak of popular resistance? What if the collision between the Executive and the Congressional cabal reaches to the ranks of the people? What if tha court pronounce the limitations upon its power void, and invoke to the assertion of its independence the strong arms of the people? What if the States refitse to recognize the usurpation ? Tlie guaranties of the constitution and the privilege of the courts are a part of the property of the people. Congress in repn diating them lias set an example to the people of broken faith and factious license that may lie tollowed to disastrous conclu sions. Are Ihe People- to nav taxpa to the usurpation ? Is the pnblic credit trans ferred to the stained Imnds which have seized upon power at Washington, by over throwingconstitutions and tearing up recorded oaths, to be held sacred? No I The iron pen with which a" military Geni eral proposes to erase the obligation of lib erty in the organic law, will be seized upon to erase the obligation of debt. By the destrnction of fundamental obligations in which the madmen at the capital are en gaged, the whole fabric of pnblic credit falls. If Congress rola tho people of the only safeguard of their rights and liberties, will the people sit down and meekly pay tribute to the usurpers 7 The obligations of gov ernment and people aro mutual ; and the citizen owes support only because the gov eminent owes protection. Congress having destroyed the eexcu- tive and judicial branches of government, so that the people enjoy no protection from these deparments, all obligation to support the new government ceases ! The people will reason thus and will decide so. ihey will fall back to the nro tection of the State governments, and rely upon them. As to the public debt, the evil hands that have denied the sworn and sacred obligations of the constitution, mnst tate also the guilt of its repudiation Iraud, in a. hundred forms, has already tainted that debt. If force comes in to repel the citizen from the government, and to sever the bonds of mutual .obligation which have heretofore connected him with it, then the sum of national dishonor is complete and the fate of tho pnblic debt. in the chaos of the revolution, is of little moment. Will men interested in the future in lerested in civil order and tranquillity reflect before they push the country further on to the chasm that opens before it .
