Tho abovo paragraph is tho- slotting
sontenco of Androw Johnson' mes
sage to Gonmross. It conveys to the
mind the idua that the President is
ot to be drive from tho impregnable
position, cqui-distutit between ovnlral-
ization and secession. , If it ouibs the
interests of wild inovators, in order
to accomplish a- present purpose,1 to
assume that our country will be bet
tan gpvcEnfid by lodging moro power
in tho centruf government, they will
probably have to defer the consum
mation of their scheme until a change
can be eluded in tho executive department-
Those who would plunge headlong
into the centralization project appear
to forget that tho existence of a pow
erful State near tho National Capital
alone preveniod it from becoming tho
easy prey of tho Confederates during
tho.t'WO weeks in which Washington
was-isoloied from tho north, in the lat
ter parti ot April and the first days ot
May, 1861. Tbe Union Defense Com
mittee, act'ng with tho powerful co
operation of tho Stato of New Fork,
opened tho road to Washington, when
the central) gpvernmorit was helpless
at the feet of tho legions of Boiiaasion.
Throughout the war the authorities of
tho Slates wcro energetic in thoir sup
port of the Union J. ready with mCn
and' money, and always doing more
than was asked of them. While they
but ranked as accessaries to the gen
era) government, tbey did at least as
fnuoh for tbo salvation of tbe country
as tbe government at Washington -
On the other band, tbo existence of,
Stato governments at vthe South fur
ntshed'a medium for the expression of
returning loyalty to tho Union, or
what was equivalent to it, the means
by, which tho partially, vanquished
rebels could express-tbeicvdlsoontent
with, the Confederate government. It
is pretty well.i known that Sherman's
operations ih Gaorgia Were facilitated
by the discontanLaf that Stato at the
proceedings. ojV Xetfbraon Jihs, and.
his , oo conspirators. Now that . the
war is endod, it js only by the ma
chinory of tbe.SyUle govern manta,that.
order can ,bo joBtored at the South
wttu any degree ot liberty whatever
arid in, such matters order is next to
justios- trbo best of all things, akfd, in

About, tiib Lost Woman. A dili
gont search bas failed t'o fix the iden
tity of tho fonialo, who, it is said was
rowned by breaking through tbe ice
on Sunday evening. Whether this
female was ono of the matrons-reside
iig in Rocklund or thereabouts, or an
ligible spinster of that biri( wicU does
not appear. Possibly she may have
een an unprotected aboriginal fotnule
laboring under tho obfuscating influs

Or, if anybody rcully saw this
poor woman go on to the ice, without
attempting her rescue, it is another

13 ut amid these bewildering theories
of the case, there is a gleam of conso
lation : no case of blighted affections
or-of "a-broken heart bas yet' come to
ght, which would justify tho uct of
summarily shuffling off this mortal
coil ; no Bemaphorid signal ' from

aboriginal death howl has been raised
in token of a vacancy in the ranks of

bitualo about this town, and from
those faots it is fuir to conclude that
f anybody hus been drowned the los
is not of tbat character which will
load to any exhibitions of uncontroll
able or hopeless grief. -
