The Limit. General ittrümtea the f.iilure to t'iko llichmond at tho by the Soulh of the James to Gen Buïlek : and reporta that disobedieoce of orders, by the sumo offioer, eansed tho h'rst expeditiou to capturo Port Fisher to fall short. Of the affatr on tho Jumes, he says that the geuerakhip of B.utlek placed his arvny in groat security," hut that it " was as eompletely hut off iVoin furthor directly against Riohmond as if it had beon in a botüe Etronjrly corked." And at tho samo time, the public wil] reeolloet, Butler was boasting to the country that he had tbo vobola tight, and that Gen. Grant would be no more troubled wilh Beaureqarp. The public is now also told that Gen. Butler was supereeded by Gen. Okd, ftfterthe Fort Fisher_iwo, by the Lieut. Qenural' st, And wo may also teil the publio that this report of Gen. Grant has disposed of General Butler. His resignation has been seut ii - datedback, however, to suve appearanoes. Exit Butleh. The report bestows unmeasured praise upon Gen. Sbbrmah, giving him the credit of v'. tho expedition from Atlanta to the sea, and ooufessing that he pertuitted ita exc::ni:on with muny doubts. Qenc-ril Ghamt is evidently no more inclined r i ti iet from jast praise due his subordínales thaa, to cover up the nhort u ings of ot! It is iu able md iateresting report. U: Andkew Johnson ertftinued lo fervi in t V Seoa'.e rt the Uuited States ufter his State, Tennesse", paseed an ordinanoa of eecession jnii.ed the so-alled Southern cjk He left the Saiinte to return to Tenness#e as ittíMlitary Govornor, and while ■■Hing iu that capaoity - and while his Stato was out of tie Union b mueh as any other Southern State, and certainly as mach as it is to-ilay - he was Domiuated by tlw Baltimore Conventioa ior Viee-Presidcnt, and elected by tho Republican party. If ' "" ihen oithor defacto or de jure out of the Cnica he was un alien, and ioeligiblo t o to vvhich llia people assiimeil to elévate hin ; if Teuuessaü is now oitl er de facto or de jure out of the Union ho is au alion and not rightfully the Presid nt of the United Statca. And in jutt ibiu positioo he is placed by the refusal of Cougress to recogaizo Tenoessee as State, and -.idmit her Senators aüd Bepresentatives to theii' soats. Pöihaps Senator Sumner or Iiiau. Stevens will introducá a resolution deckiring that President Johnson was. an alien, ineligible to office, aud is not the President. Sueh a re.-oiution would be strietly in keeping with their other deelared 'opinious and proposed actions. , I f. . . tMm I 11 I mm Ly The radicáis show any thing but a diepositiou t see the Uuion restored, uud harmony prevail betweon the North and tíoulh. Not su wit h Gen Ghant In the coucl'jding paragráph of his recent raport, he pays tribute to the valor and endurance of the several arrnies o!' the Union, aud then adds : " All have a " proud record, and all sections can well " congratúlate themsolvos and each oth" er for having done their fuil share in "restoring the supretnacy of law over " every foot of territory belonging to the f? United States. Let thein hope for " perpetual peaoe and harmony with " that enemy whose manhood, however " mistaken the cause, drew forth such " herculean deeds of valor." If the majority of the two Houses of Congross will, drink io a little of Gen. Grant's spirit the work of reconstructmn will eoon be cumploted. Jiut there is little hopo of oithür Gen. Ghant's good sonae or Ohristian spirit being exhibited by Sumner, Wilson, Chandler, Stevens, and the other pestilent radicáis who rule in the two wings of the Capitol, and snub the President in advance of his message. &'3T -New Kngland is some, that's a iact.
