PKEBIDENT JOHNSON. FAY* iHABLE KEPORT OF GENERAL GRANT. The President <m Tuesday, transmitted the (following message to the Senate : ’ Ui> the Senate of the United States ; In reply to the resolution adopted by the Senate on the 12th. I have tlte houor to stale that the rebellion waged by a portion of the people agaiust the properly constituted au thorities of the Uuitcd States has been sup pressed ; that the United States are iu pos session of every Slate iu which thu insurrec tion existed, and that, as far as could be done, the courts of the United Slates have .been restored, post offices re-established, and steps taken to put iuto effective operation the revenue laws of the country. As the re sult of the measures instituted by the Exe-’ cutivc with the view of indusing a resump tion of the functions of the States compre hended in the inquiry of the Senate, the peo ple in North Carolina, South Carolina, Geor gia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkau : sas aud Tennessee have recognised their re-, •pective State Governments, and are yielding [obedience to the laws and .Qoverum cut of the United States with more Willingness and ' greater promptitude than uuder the circum stances, could reasonably have been antici pated. The proposed amendment to the Constitution, providing for the abolition of slavery forever within the limits of the coun try. has been ratified by each one of these Slates, willi the exception of Mississippi, from which no official information has been received; and iu nearly all of them mea sures have been adopted, or are now pend ing, to confer upou the lreedmen the privi leges which are essential to their, comiort, protection and security. Iu Florida and Texas the people are making considerable progress in restoring their State Governments, aud no doubt is entertained that they will, at a very early period, be in a condition to re sume all their practical relations with the Federal Government. Iu that portion of Uie Union lately iu re bellion the aspect of affairs is more promising tliun, in view of ail the circumstances, could well have been expected. The people throughout the entire Suuth eviuce a lauda ble desire to rcuew their allegiance to the Government and to repair the devastations of war by a prompt and cheerful return to peace ful pursuits. An abiding faith is cutertaioed that their actions will conform to their pro fessions, nnd that in acknowledging the su premacy of the Constitution and tire laws of the U. S. their loyalty will be unreservedly given to the Government whose leniency ihyy caunot fail to appreciate, and whose fuateriug care will soon restore them to a condition of prosperity. It is true that in some of the States the demoralizing effects of the war are to be seen iu occasional dis orders ; but these are local in character, uot trequeut in occurrence, aud are rapidly dis appearing as the authority of the civil power Is extended and sustained. Perplexing ques tions were naturally to be expected from the great and sudden change in the relations be tween the two races ; but systems are grad ually developing themselves under which the freedmeu will receive the protection to which he is justly entitled, and by means of his la bor make himself a uselui and independent member of the community in which he has his home. From all tbe iuformatiim in my possession, and iron) filial which I recently derived from the most reliable authority, I am induced to cherish the belief that sectional animosity is surely And rapidly merging itsefl into a spirit of nationality, and that representation con nected with a properly adjusted system of taxation will result in a harmonious restora tion of the relations of the Stales to- the Na tional Union. The report of Carl Scburz la herewith transmitted, as requested by the .Senate. No report from the Hon. John Covode. has been received by the President. The attention of the Senate is invited to tbe accompanying rejiottof Lieutenant Genera 1 . Grant, who re-’ ceutly made a lour of inspection through sev eral of the States whose inhabitants partici pated iu the rebellion. . Andrew Jghmson. Washington, D. C., Dec- 18, 1860. Mr. Cowan then railed tor the reading of a report made to the President by General Grant concerning his late visit iu the South. I 11 1 1 bNANT OkN. OHANV’B KEPORT. Gene ral Grant’s igport was read, as fol lows : Headqrs., Army of the UNiTBnSrATF.s,'! December 18, 18<>5. ) To his Excellency Andrew Jobuson, Presi dent of the United States : Sir— l reply to your note of the 16th inst., requesting a report from me giving such in formation as I may be possessed of coming within the scope of the inquiries made by the Senate ot the United States IU their resolu tion of the 12th inst. I have the honor to submit the following, with your approval and also that of the honorable Hecretary’of War; 1 left Washington City on the 27tli of last month for the purpose of making a tour ol inspection throughout some of the Southern Elates lately in rebellion, and to see what changes were necessary in tb* disposition of the military force of the country, how these forces could he reduced and expenses cur tailed, &c. ; and to learn, as far as possible, the feelings and intentions of the citizens ot Jhese States toward the General Government, the State of Virginia being bo accessible to H ashington City, and information from this garter therefore being readily obtained, I hastened through the State without convers mg or meeting with any of its citizens. In ffaleigb N. C., I spent one day ; in Charles ton. S. C., two days, and in Savannah and Au «usla, Ga., each, one day. Both in travel ID g uud while stopping I saw much and con versed freely with the citizens of those States well as with officers of the army who have been stationed among them, ft i'ue following are the conclusions come’to hf me: f 1 uni satisfied that the mass ‘of minting men of the South accept the pres ent situation of atfaiis in good faith- The *iue*lioDs which have hitherto divided the “•ntinionta of the people of the two sections ~dsvery and State right*, or the right of a ntate to accede from the Union—they regard M having been settled forever by the highest tribunal— arm*—that man can re*ort to. 1 was phased to learn from the leading men whom 1 met that they not only accepted the ‘“‘'“•on arrived at aa final, hut now tire ■thoke of hatUe ha* cleired away and time hM been given lor irfUcliou, that this deci •mo ha* been a fortunate ou« lot lire wlml* ■'Uuujr, they rueeiving the Ilk* beuafUa from ‘ with those who opposed ihem In the Held In Ur# i ouuctl Km years ot war, du ;, *Hf *hicb, law was * Mooted only at the | point of the bayooet throughout the Btales in rebellion, have left the people possibly iu a condition not to yield that ready obedience to dvit authority the American people have generally been in the habit of yielding. This would reuder the presence of small garrisons throughout those Slates neoesaary until such time as labor returns to its proper channel aud civil authority is fully establish ed. I did not meet any one, either those lioldiug places under the Government or citi zens of the Southern States, who thought it practicable to withdraw the military foree from the South at present The presence of black troops, lately slaves, demoralizes labor both by tboir advice, and furnisbiug in their camps s resort for the lreedmen for long dis tancesaronnd. White troops generally excite no opposition, sad therefore a small nu mber of them can maintain order in a given district. Colored troops must be kept in bodies sufficient to defend themselves. It is not the thiuking men who would do violence toward sny class of troops sent among them by the General Government; but the ignorant in some places might; and the late slaves, too, who might bo imbued with the idea that the property of his late master should by right belong to him, at least should have uo pro tectiouWfrom the colored soldier. There i9 danger of collision being brought on by such causes. My observations lead me to the conclusion that the citizens of the Southern States are anxious to return to self-govern ment within the l T uiou as soon ss possible; that while reconstructing they want and re quire protectiou Irons the Government; that they think, is required by the Government, ami is not Imutilialiug to them as citizens i aud that it such a course were pointed out, they would pursue it in good faith. It is to be regretted that there cannot be a greater commingling at this time between the citi zens of the two sections, and particularly of those intrusted with the law-making power. I did not give the operations of the Freed men’s Bureau that attention I would have dime if more time had beeu at my disposal. Conversations, however, on the subject with officers connected with the Bureau, led me to think Uiat in some of thfe States its affairs have not been conducted with good judg ment and economy, and that the belief wide ly spread amoug the freedmen of the Sou thern States that the lands of their former owners will, at least in part, be divided among them, has come from the agents of Ibis Bureau. This belie! is seriously inter fering with the willingness of the treedmen to make contracts for the coming year. In some form the Fruedmcn's Bureau is an ab solute necessity until civil law is established ani( enforced, securing to' the freedmen tbelr rights and full protection. At present, however, it is independent of the military establishment of the country, and seems to be operated by the different agents of the Bureau according to their in dividual notions. Everywhere General Howard, the Able head ol the Bureau, made frieuds by the just and fair instructions apd advice he gave. But the complaint in South Carolina was that when be left,- things went on ss before. Many, perhaps the majority, of the agents of the Freedmen’s Bureau ad vise the freedmen that by their own indus try they must expect to live. To this end they endeavor to secure employment for them, and to see that both contracting parties comply with their engagements. In some cases, I am sorry to say, the freedman’s mind does not seem to be disabused of the idea that the freedman has the. right to live with out care or provision for the future. The ef fect of the belief in the division of lands is idleness and accumulation in camps, towns aud cities. In such cases I think it' will be fouud that vice aud disease will tend to the extermination or great destruction of the colored race, it cannot be expee'ed that the opinions held by men at the South for years can be changed in a day. And, therefore, the freedmen require for a few years,not only laws to protect them, but the fostering care of those who will give them good counsel and on whom they can rely. The Freed .men's Bureau being separated from the mili tary establishment of the country requires all Uie expense of a separate organization. Oue does not necessarily know wnat the other is doing, hr what orders they are acting under. It seems to me tfiis could be corrected by regarding every officer on duty with troops in the Southern States as agents of the Freedmen’s Bureaus aud then have all orders from the head of the Bureau sent through the department commanders. This would create a responsibility that would cause uni formity of action throughout the South, would cause the orders and instructions from the head of die Bureau to be carried out, and would relieve from duty and pay a large number of employes of the Government. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, U- 8. Grant, Lieutenant General. FOOD DAYSLATER MML FROM NEW lOM: We publish elsewhere in full, tbe special message of the President to Congress, men tioned in onr telegraphic despatches, ip which the President, backed np by Lt. Gen. Grant, places himself resolutely between the South and the onslaughts of the radicals. Hon. Thos. Corwin of Ohio, who was at tacked with paralysis on the 15th, expired on the 18th, at Washington. Mr. Corwin was seventy years of age at the time of Ids death. A terrible catastrophe occurred on the 18th in a building uear tbe Arsenal, in Washing ton. While s number of w orkmen were en gaged iu sorting and arranging ammunition an explosion occurred, instantly demolishing tlie building, killing eight men, and so seriously injuring several others that they are not expected to survive. The Legislature of North Carolina ad journed on the 18tb, till the Ist of February. No law was pagsed or bill presented for tbe government and protection of the freedmen. Benjamin Robinson, editor of the Fayette ville (N. C.) News, was arrested upon the order ot General Huger for articles which appeared iu his paper unfriendly to the gov ernment. The Cabinet was hr season on the 19th— The session was prolonged, and it is under stood that Mexican affairs wore fully discuss ed. The question of the legality of the pro longation of power by President Jaurez was raised, in view of the right el General Ortega, the Chief Justice of Mexico, to succeed to the Presidency in case of *ny lapse of au thority by the head of the Government.— Pending the settlement of this question, it is believed that no Uuilod Slates Minister to Mexico will be appointed for the present, at least. A collision look place in Norfolk, V'a., on the 17th, between the Twentieth New York Regiment and the Thirtieth lulled States Colored. A volley of from ten to twelve muskets was flrsd hy%e Twentieth upon the colored troops, which was about to lie re turned, when their officer* arrived and put an and to lira disurrhaw e.

Great loss of property has already beeu sue tained through the breaking up of the ice gorge, previous to the last cold snap. The European steamer which arrived at New York on the 18th, brought the follow ing interesting intelligence: * some idea ot the excited state of the pub lic mind iu France on the Mexican quesliou may be gathered from the fact that the acci dental presence of one Sherman’s aids-de camp General Schofield.iu Paris, whither he went for the benefit of hit health, has served to alarm Paris by rumors of impending war. The Spanish government showed no inten tion of abandoning Us headstrong aggression Id South America. , Two more Fenians bad been convicted and sentenced, the one to twenty years' and the other to ten years’ penal servitude.
