Mr. Johnson does not seem to have even yet made

up his mind to abandon the struggle with Congress. Both Houses passed the Bill we mentioned last week, forbidding the removal of the Southern district military commanders without the consent of the Senate, and Mr. Johnson immediately vetoed it, on which both Houses passed it by a two-thirds' majority over his veto. It is obvious that the rumours which are re-circulated every three months about the Conservative reaction in the North are uni- formly baseless. The country farmers well know by this time what a piece of work is before them in revolutionizing society in the South. They know that a strict military regime is necessary to prepare for the election of loyal Conventions in the Southern States, and they have not the slightest intention of letting the ad interim authority slip back into the hands of secessionists in spirit. The American people are not quite so shilly-shally as the foolish newspapers would have us believe.
