We have before staled our iuipieasion
that lh leaders in the reM Statts would
couclude to reorganise their State Govern

lear that, if they related, the peopln. otild
take the matter out ot their hands hyhobl
ing C.mventirms ot thsir own. The En
quirer' Washington correspondent, who ia
supposed to give the Johnaon view, says
"there is no longer any doubt thit tlie
South will speedily organize under the Mil -itarv
Government act. and send at the
earliest day (Misaible their Representatives
to Congress. "

Mr. Morton moved that the Senate take

he voted against laying the resolutions on
the table, because lie was unwilling to see
them disposed of in this way. He dissent

March was a pledge. It could not be re
garded in the light of a contract, because
that takes two parties one to propose und
the other to iicc. pt ; on iii.-nilv, it is en
tirely competent tor L'oiigreaa to alter,
amend, or r.-peal that bill without disliou
or or breach of fuith. There wus much in

He (Mr. Howe) voted yesterday against lay

He mentioned an instance, growing'oatajf

it being connected with a civil suit for tlam

Mr. Sherman said Congress had entire
power over the w hole matter, and if anv at
tempt waa made to stifle the voice of tbe
loyal people, it could immediately apply the
remedy, out they were bonnu by every sen
tiincntof honor to stand by their offer.
Mr. Johnson alluded to a remark of Mr.
Dixon, that before long Congress would
follow the lead ol the Senator from Massa
chusetts, (Mr. Sumner) and proclaim univer
sal confiscation, jnst aa it bail in the past
followed the track marked out by the Sena
tor. He ( Mr. Johnson) did not care to in
quire whether this was true ot Ule past, but
as to tlie future he had no idea that it would
prove true. He could not believe that one
single member on thia floor would be wil
ling to violate the pledged faith of the na
tion. He could not believe that one single
member, either of this or the other House,
but who desired the restoration of the
In ion. Even the Sep at or from Massachu
setts (Mr. Sumner) has more than once told
us that he wished lor tbe restoration of the
Colon. He had voted for the bill to pro
vide for the reconstruction of those States
in good faith that it was an offer which
would lie adhered to. He had on hi table
letters from gentlemen in North Carolina
and elsewhere, inquiring in regard to this
matter, and had replied that the proviaioua
oi me tun were all that would be asked, and
waa his word now U be tuifeitsd I
Adopt now the proposition of the 8ens

construction will be confined to the blacks
just emancipated, and three or four thous

beginning of the war. Were secessionists
If this proposition was adopted it would
inaugurate such horrors aa the imagination
could not conceive. He hoped the Senator
would withdraw R. He believed that the
South would accept the offer which had
lieen made to them, and he entreated that
they might lie allowed a chance to accept it.
If they were, in less than two years all
those States would be back here.
Mr. Fnlinghuystn said the Senate was
now asked to annul all which it had been
trying In tlo for the last three months. It
was asked to violate its pledged faith.X He
moved lo lay the resolution on the table.
Mr. Sumner again took the floor in advo
cacy ot his resolutions, and maintained that
he waa only a little in advance of his asso
ciates wheu he first proclaimed the imwcror
Congress over tlie rebel States and urged its
right to confer the suffrage. He waa told
he waa wrong, yet the Senators who then
opposed him , had changed their opinions,
and a few days ago voted to confer univer
Mr. Sumner sent to thf clerk's desk, and
asketl for the reading of a M-ech made by
Mr. Sherman in 18112, comparing him (Mr.
Sumner) to Jefferson Davis, and maintain
ing the sovereignty ol the States.
Mr. Sherman said neatly every man had
changed his mind during the peri, d ol the
war and since, and he did not deny that he
had, but he had not changed hia mind on
