The new (.'ongress will not assemble until after the -Ith of March next, and we shall not be surprised if, when it does meet, a number of those elected as democrats and conservatives arc not expelled or pre vented from l.aking their scats so as to give the Ke- publicaiis a two-thirds vote. It is very doubtful whether those Democrats who cannot lake th;; iron-clad test ojith will get their seals. Now that the I’epiiblicans have control of the (ioveriiiiient !'or fi^iir years more at least, they might be magiiaiiimoiis and almlish the test oath. ^ WtiAT ViHiWMA Wants.—.Not politicians, old t'i);rii s.

Mr Wade is very much mistaken. The tax comes out of the pockets of the laboring class—the men who work tor wages ; and for that reason the laboring class, white and black, ought to oppose those who faror taxing Cotton, or increasing taxes ou any sort of properly. If the farmer, merchant or properly-owner is heavily taxed, he cannot afford to give high wages to employees, and will not do it. Congressmen and legislators who impose heavy taxes on the people, injure the labor ing portion especially.

The (ioveruor is a Northern man n.iined Keed, and went to the State merely for the piir]iose of getting otlice. He is accused of lying, bribery and corruption generally. Gov. Keed. how ever, is not disposed to be deiirived of his office so 1 I soon, and has positively refused to vacate unless the : Supreme Court decides against him. The Lieut, j (ioveruor now claims to bo the lawful Governor of j Florida, and is trying to oust Reed. The matter is before the Courts. -At a public dinner in London, recently, the ' lion. Reverily Johnson, U. S. Minister, expressed the following sentiments: “.Mihougb a Southerner, be always balieved the Union should be preserved at any cost. He extolled the heroes of the war, and particularly Oenerals Orant, Sherman. Hancock and Sheridan, and Ad mirals Farragul and Porter. He believed that the .\tnerican delit would be })aid in gold, and said the .\merica!i people would have been ungrateful if they had not elected (jencral (Jrant to the Tresidencj'. In the course of his speech .Mr Johnson also said : •'Whatever diificulties have occurred between Eng- l.-iiid and the rniicd Slates, 1 have supreme pleasure in r:aying they are about to be removed. Little re mains to be done, and before the close of the year everything will be successfully adjusted.” ItetV rring to tl;e financial condition of the United States, he said; “We have contracted an enormous debt, but I tell you with .all the sincerity with which a man can speak, every dollar will be paid in what the world recognizes as money.’” We ]ircsume it was not generally known, hereto fore, that lleverdy Johnson was a (irant man, but it seems that he wa., and of course the President must have known it when he appointed him Minister to Kngland.

IJi Ti.KU.—General B. F. Butler has been elected by a very large majority—greater, indeed, than he received before. The electitm of this man is a bitter pill to the Radicals. Tl'.cy believe that he goes to Congress bearing an uiiap}»e;isable hatred against General (Jrant, and that he will endeavor iu every way to cripple his administration. He is also known to desire to fill the place of Thad. St«evens in the leadership of the extreme Radical wing of the Republican party. Moreover, Gen. Butler is in p!ssession of many of the secret* of the liadicals which he will not hesitate to blow upon them; and this is wh*** ’ - ^ in sc.ssion last week. A business committee of fifteen was appointed. Gen. Grant had a long interview with Com missioner Rollins, at Rollins’ office. Very great excitement exists about Revenue matters.

The I’resident is determined to have, il jMissible. a full investigation (d’the flaud^ perpetrated, let the blame fall where it may. But a strong and apparently almost invin cible combination exists to prev«nt the truth from being ascertained.
