ates, within the Union. In that respect, it was a harbinger of the President's message to the Senate. The proclamation and the message are bombshells in the Radical camp. They define the President's policy of reconstruction beyond any chance of misconception. Mr. Stevens and his faction have been outmanœuvred, and a breach has been accomplished between the Executive and the Radicals through which the Southern States can pass on to their legitimate position in the political household. Mr. Johnson is now positively committed to the enforcement of the right of the South to Congressional representation, and the Select Committee of Fifteen might as well send in their report at once, and ask to be discharged from the consideration of a foregone conclusion.--New York News.
