PARTIES IS COSGKKSS.
The lines of party are now being drawn so
el<we!y that it is not difficult to anticipate
their action as regards the most impoitant
measure'of the present CoDgreas—the re
al mission of the Southern members to their
seats. The harmony that usually subsists
Vtween the Executive and Legislative de
partments was threatened with interruption
down to a late period, analtetore the devel
opments took place that indicated the direct
ion which the forces of party would take.
The Republicans came to Washington in im
posing numbers. The course of proceedings
of a section of the more violeut among them
had been plainly marked out. Thadeus Ste
vens, Snmner and Wilson, the leaders of this
section, appeared to be satisfied with nothing
short of exclusion from Congress for an inde
finite period, with confiscation of property.
Their programme embraced the conscqueuces
that involve all the penalties of conquest. If
their plan is permitted to prevail, the Con
federate States would be remanded to the
condition of Territories. The chief actors in
these extreme measures would not only in
flict on the insurgent States the pains and
penalties of civil degredation, but couvert
their possessions into the means of pay
ing the debts incurred in their subjugation.
The number o'! these extremists fortunate
ly constitute a minority in Congress who
are able by their votes to overrule the Ex
ecutive. A division between them and the
mor e moderate of their party was early ap
parent. President policy ot re
construction gained iriends 89 soon as an
interchange of views took place between the
njpjnjjp**® as one Consonant to the character
of oLmi, and totally adverse to
tiro f i ut aft assumed tbe Southern States
qeceded tohe*ponquered provinces.
That there are signs that such a division
at we have indicated exists is plainly visible.
It first showed itself in the Senate. That
body is, as it has always been, eminently
conservative. They do not wish to see the
government resolved into its original ele
ments, and the principles to prevail in a
voluntary association of Sfates which gov
ern the absolute governments of the old
world, in which the rights of conquest are
paramount. Th« original resolution for the
appointment of a committee of fifteen was
materially modified in passing the Senate.
In whatever manner that committee may be
appointed, will in a great measure
determine the character of its report.
Whether it is named by the Speaker of the
House aud the President of the Senate con
curreutly or chosen by the vote ot each
House respectively will make little difference
as regards the result. If the report should
be adverse to the Southern members taking
their seats the President will; no doubt, nega
tive the resolutions that exclude them from
their places. Then will have arrived the
tests ot firmness aud patriotism. There will
not, we are persuaded, he found two-thirds
of both houses who will place themselves
in opposition to the Executive.
Cou£ regional News.
Botli branches of Congress seem lo be pro
gressing harmoniously in the consideration
aud disposal ot the business brought before
them. The Republican majority is so over
whelmingly large aud the party has been so
thoroughly, united thus far upou leading
subjects ot legislation, that tho few Demo
crats holding seats have prudently said but
little, but have quietly recorded their votes
agaiust the extreme measures proposed by
the Republican leadefs.
Os the variety of legislative propositions
that have been introduced and partially act
ed upon, the/’Tlowing are the most impor
tant ; ■
A bill extending tbe right of suflrage to
the colored people in the District of Colum
bia, which has been referred to the Judiciary
Committee, a majority of whom, it is report
ed. are in its favor.
A bill to reimburse the State of Missouri
tor expenses incurred iu enrolling, equip
ping aud provisioning the militia.
A bill to prohibit the importation of cattle
irotn Europe, so as to prevent the spread of
the cattle-disease in this country, which has
passed both Houses aud awaits iho approval
oi the President.
A bill to maintain the freedom of the in
habitants of the States declared to be in in
surrection and rebellion by the proclamation
ot the President of Ist July, 1862. It de
clares all laws heretofore in lorce, or held
valid in the insurrectionary States, whereby
aDy inequality of civil, rights and immunities
among the inhabitant* of these States, on
account ot race or color, are null and void.

to place the Freedinen upon a tooting of |S>

was referred to the committee of which Mr
Stevens is chairman.
A joint resolution has been suhmiued in
the Senate, embracing the following articles,
to be proposed as amendments to the Con
stitution of the United States.
“First. The union of the States, under this
Constitution, is Indissoluble, and no State
can absolve its citizens from the obligation ot
paramount allegiance to ike United States.
Second : No engagement made, or obliga
tion incurred by any Slate, or by any num
tier of States, or by any county, city or other
municipal corporation, to subvert, impair, or
resist the authority of the United States, or
to support or aid any legislature, convention
or body in hostility to such authority, shall
ever be held, voted, or be assumed or sus
tained, in whole or part, by any State or by
the United States.

The Committee on the Jndiciary has been
instructed to consider and report whether
any of the inhabitants of the States
to be in insurrection, by the Proclamation ot
the President, dated July 16tb, 1861, and July
IC, 1862, are entitled to compensation for any
losses of property occasioned by the opera
tions of the United States armies, employed
in the suppression of the rebellion.
Resolutions have been introduced instruct
ing tiic Committee on Printing to enquire
into the propriety of printing a certain num
ber of the President's Message, and General
Grant's Report in the German language.
The New York Tribune, of the 14tb, an
nounces that the Tennessee delegation had
been admitted to the floor of the House, and
that the delegation from Louisiana and Vir
ginia <tK urging that they too should be ad
mitted to the same privilege. There are cer
tainly four, and perhaps five, says the same
paper, of the Virginia delegation, who can
subscribe to the test oath.
The Aaron A. Bkadlht Cask.— Aaron
A. Bradley, a freckled mulatto from
Boston, has been sentenced by a military
commission to one year’s imprisonment in
Fort Pulaski, for using seditious language
among the colored people of this city. We
uunouoce the sentence with pleasure, but in
clude the culprit's name in this paragraph
with reluctance, baviug many years ago,
when he was frequently brought under our
observation as a mischief-making character,
who sought notoriety more than any legiti
mate success, formed the resolution, if possi
ble never to mention his name in any pub
lic connection. The importance of the prin
ciple carried out in this sentence is the only
consideration moving us to refer to the sub
ject, alter directing our court reporter to
make no allusion whatever to Bradley’s case.
When pretending to he a member of the Suf
folk (Massachusetts) bar, from which he wus
very properly expelled, we never happened
to know him to have a case except those iu
which himself was a party, aud he al
most invariably lost them. Merely a barra
trous aunoyaneein Boston, he’has only been
an object of contempt and disgust here, and
we believe Boston will join hands with Sa
vannah in congratulation over ihe righteous
sentence we now chronicle.
Governor Orr of South Carolina, sends
to the Legislature of that Stale some impor
tant correspondence between Provisional
Governor Perry aud Secretary Seward, on
the subject of repudiation. The Secretary
tolegrapbed to Gov. Perry that the President
desired that South Carolina would “lose no
lime iu making au effective, organic declara
tion repudiating her.war debt.” Gov. Perry
replied that it was “impracticable to make
any such organic declaration, as the State
Couveutiou had been dissolved, after haviug
done all that the President had requested to
be done, and as it was undesirable to keep a
revolutionary body, like that of the Conven
tion in existence any lougcr tlgtu absolute
necessity required." Mr. Seward then tele
graphed that the President would “await
with interest" an official expression of the
Legislature upon the subject. Governor Orr
therefore lays the communication before the
Legislature lor action in referuuce to the of
ficial expression which the President is
“awaiting with interest."

Millen is a wreck; It cannot possibly, as
thiDgs go, be rehabilitated in less than six

disruption of accustomed ties from that great

The resignations of Major General Gill

accepted. The acceptance of the resignation
ot General Wilson hag been revoked, and he
is ordered to report for duty.
The anomalous and unconstitutional con
dition of a State being ruled by two Gover
nors is now to be found in four States, viz.:
North Carolina, where Worth was elected
Governor over Holden, the Provisional Gov
ernor, but has never been inaugurated; South
Carolina, where Governor Orr was .elected
and duly inaugurated, but in which State it
is questionable whether the reins are still
held by Provisional Governor Perry or by
General Sickles; Mississippi, where Governor
Humphreys has been inaugurated, but the
cx-Provisional Governor Sharkey or someone
else, probably some one' else, exercises the
power; aud Georgia, where Governor Jen
kins is inaugurated, hut “J. Johnsoß, Pro
visional Governor," still holds on. In Louisi
ana the Constitutional Governor and the
Provisional Governor happeu to lie united in
the same person, Wells, who has, however,
coolly dodged being inaugurated by the Leg
islature, evidently preferring to hold fast to
the Federal appointment.
We take the following paragraphs from
the Augusta Constitutionalist of the 18th in

He had succeeded in moving four bales when

night a negro man walked into the
store of Mr. J. Moore, on Broad street,
and after purchasing some smalt
articles banded Mrs. Moore a five dollar

iu a large collecting book, when the negro
deliberately reached out his hands aud gath
ered it all to himself, darting out of the
store, nud making good his escape, with
nearly one hundred dollars in greenbacks.
Mrs. M gave the alarm, but the black bird
and monuey had disappeared.
Another Robbery.—' The store occupied
by Mrs. C. C. Dumm, 210 Broad street,
was broken into early Friday morning. The
robber or robbers, entered the cellar from
the yard and deliberately removed the brick
and mortal forming the tire place,by and this
means effected an entrance into tho store.
We regret to learn that nearly $1,500 worth
of goods were stolen.

Atlanta was to take place on Saturday last
