It will be recollected that at the recent rnect- ng of. negroes at G-loucester Court-House, Virginia, the 'prevailing idea was that the nnds were to be given them; and that Ihey railed against an agent of the Fn.edraen'a Bu- who attempted to disabuse their minds of he false and dangerous impression. Oa that occasion, as on others, they indicated reliance upon some party which was pledged to carry out their favorite programme. Through the recent influence of the Presi- dent, negro troops have been removed from positions where, it seems, the War Department bad set its heart ou keeping them. Nor have we been able to make up our mind that we had heard the last of such, difficulties as that developed-in the case of Gen. Slocum1 By that case it was made evident that there was u conflict of authority somewhere. Besides this the President has at one'sweep ordered the re- moval of hordes of lands in South Carolina, which they have been enjoying for some time under.orders irom some bureau, or department, or individual official. Thus the plot thickens. It is easy to see -why the Pres- ident has moved slowly and carefully but ii is none the less evident, we think, that he acts with, loresight and determination. Possibly his decision may prevent a difficulty, and possibly may precipitate it: we cannot A great deal depends on opportunities. We cannot but believe, however, that the friends ot the President's policy are strong and wise enough to carry it through, especially as some of the designs of the opposition require se crecy, and must, therefore, be more or less tramelled in their operations. One thing is clear the President's plan is obviously right at least it cannot be accused of too much lib- erality to the South. The advantages of th South in tbe present conflict do not depend on Presidential favoritism they inhere in th fact that Ihe speediest and most clement plan of restoration is most in accordance with the and spirit of tbe government, us well o_ most conducive to the quiet and progress o tbe country. These are advantages whicl nothing can take away from us. They to the -very nature of the case; and they at ford a ground of superiority so commanding we cannot believe the principles there entrenched caa ever be dislodged. A portion o the fierceness of the opposition must be set dowa to tbe credit ot conscious weakness; and, therefore, instead of being received as a i sign of trouble abead should be taken as a leal Edittorlal Correspondence GALVESTON, Oct. 2i, 1865.

Jeff Davis, it is known, 'treasure" of his own. theex-Confedenae President left Richmond on that memorable Sun- day afternoon, he had not'a dollar of gold orsfiVer. in the world. This-was as well known to his mate friends about him as that a portion of the Confederate capitol was left in ashes. _ He did not, however, lack for the "yellow hadfeo. chosen to accept it.. On his route, he was beg-gefi on several occasions to accept-the free will otTfer- ings of thoae who had to give, but in every iusfeuwc he declined. Let me narrate what occurred at Major Suther- land's fine residence at Danville. It "was liere that Mr. Davis made his home during his sojourn in that town, tarrying for something like ten' days. This most estimable family, previous to the arrival of their distinguished goest, had not heard of his really, reduced pecuniary co but while there it came to the ears of the wife, who, with true womanly kindness, set obnot to_surprise their guest. Their stock of gold, UtA aside for a was by no means ocr hausted, and the old lady from this stock euonted out 1000 dollars which she sewed up carefully small bag.' Nothing was said about it until eve ofthe guests' departure, or rather just as he was about stepping into liis carriage, when tbs Major remarked, "Hr. President hore is a ana! token which my wife has bogged I should hand ia yon, in the hope that you jnay find it useful on your journey." Whiit is it, Davis. The Major replied, "It is a mere tritie it and a_sk rjn further "f replied Mr. Davis, and, burstirff into tears, he leaped into his carriage, with a "God bless you and yours .Mnjor I" and ordered tbe driver to move on. verily took neither nor for his journey, yet every few days wo were regale'dl with the tidings of.further captures of his' treia- nre." That there was treasure in ;he trainVbiok preceded Davis, is well known, but npon treasure he held no claim whatever, nor did be scarcely give it a thought. The funds were tbe property of the New .Orleans aud Richmond bonks, and it is utterly wrong to keep repealing that they belonged to Duvia and were part of Ko ''plunder." FTRE AND MARINE INSURANCE.

By a living issue is not meant suffrage alone, ut the. indefinite capacity of the negro to be sed as an apple of discord.
