LATEST NEWS BY MAIL. A Negro Sures a Railroad Company in Two Courts Under the Civil Rights Act- He is Non-suited. Aaron Bradly, colored lawyer, representing himself as a member of the Suffolk bar, Boston, instituted a suit before Justice Hayward, claiming damages from the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company for refusing to comply with the terms of a contract by which he paid $1.50 to be transported from Washington to Baltimore.The plaintiff alleges that he was ejected from a car, in contempt of a law of the United States, on account of his color, race, &e., and brings a civil action to recover the amount of his fare, and damages laid at one hundred dollars. J.H.B. Latrohe appeared for the defendant. He stated that under the laws of the State the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company derived authority to make rules and regulations for the government of travel. They had absolute authority to refuse white men the privilege of entering ears occupied by ladies. He had never heard that white men ever questioned the propriety of their rules which were adopted for the sole purpose of contributing to the general pleasure of travellers on that great highway to the west. Justice Hayward, after listening to the argument in the ease, entered a judgment of non pros., which is supposed to mean that there was no cause of action. Baltimore Sun, 23rd. - ? Mr. Hcwiirtl at AiiHlirn ? II in Speech on !S nt iotutl llliiirs - Hit' l.lleolllie >nI ion llniiffs on *? Reconciliation in Pence." Anuu\, May 22. ? Secretary Seward delivered a lengthy speech ou national affairs .it Coming Hall, this evening, before a crowded audience. Mr. Seward, referring to his (h toher visit t-* Auhurn, said that then we were on the verge of a series o| elections throughout tin Mates. The leaders who pertinaciously claim t<> he democratic organized with their customary machinery and ovations. They had wisely cea>ed to denounce as a failure the war t >r the Union, which at last became a glo. riotis success. I hey thought to undermine the distinctive pattv of the I'nion hv atfccting a new-horn admiration for its chief, Andrew Johnson. 1 hey seemed anxious to prove their devotion superior to ? ill is by committing themselves t?> support him a s a candidate lor the Presidency in |sr,sf They inscribed our administration motto* s of rccoiistrtiet ion upon their new-ly-wrought banners, an I reorganizing their straggling lines as well as they could so hastily , they vehemently charged onward lor partiz.au, not a patriotic, victory. What led the Democratic leaders to make this change was the striking, 1 may call the marvelous, phenomenon which was just then exhibited in the seenc of t he recent rebellion. The whole disloyal community int!';it blighted and desolated region accepting the conditions of partial amnesty and the invitations to returning allegiance whieh were proclaimed by the administration. all at once renounced the principles, practices, and policy of secession and dis. union, tendered us a new covenant o| h?yaltv, and sealed it with their oaths, and brought forward with alacrity the remains of their loiig-cherislicd institution of slavery, and cheerfully threw it to be burned upon the constitutional altar which they had so newly restored. These unexpected changes in the attitude of political adversaries, and so ohsti. nate, naturally enough excited suspicions, jealousies, ate! appri hensions among loyal and tried Union men. It was the old ease of William of Orange, who having in civil war put down the toi ics, afterwards found it necessary to cede to repenting Jacobites and Papists the rights of citizenship. It is the ease which has ever occurred and which must forever more occur at the end of a successful resistance to rebellion. Uow could Pemoerats and rebels be converted to the support of a triumphant I'nion administration.' The work of reconciliation has outrun expectation. Indeed. it has never had a parallel in human allairs. Willi internal commotions and disturbances less serious than those which .sometimes attend popular elections in a free country in a time "t profound pence, the heretofore disloyal people of Virginia. Ten U' ssi'c, North ( arolina, South Carolina, ' ieorgia, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana. Florida, and Texas, successfully. ii;?v. almost coiistit tlions in conlorniity with the Constitution of the United Stat < They upturned the rebellion with all its far-spreading roots, and all its poisonous fruits, and they accepted and ratilicd the then pending c? ngivssional amendmeiit to the Constitution of the I'nitcd States which abolishes slavery thenceforth, forever. The people oi these States have at the same time chosen lor themselves, byfree and uncontrolled sulfrage, governors, legi." latui'es. judiciaries and muni* ipal authorities. Between the Federal (iovcrnn. 'tit and these restored and reorganized State governments there exists now a more complete and practical harmony than has ever before been presented between the I'nion and so many of its members since it was til's t established. Within this period the executive departim lit of the L' nit d States has as-mined its functions among the people of these former disloyal States, I he State department speaks for them, with their tree consent, to principalities and powers. The treasury collected the national imposts and taxes there, the war department distributes forces \ believer and wherever it seems necessary and expedient to guarantee peace between the inveterate but last expiring factions. The navy of the I'nitcd States rides freely in all their captured ports and harbors. The post.otlice circulates through every vein and artery there the knowledge which is the revivifying blood of a united republic. The people of the lately disloyal States, desiring to pass the last stage of restoration as speedily as possible, have chosen Senators to represent tlietn in the Senate, and members to answer for them in the House ot Bepresentatives, and those Bepresciitatives are daily meeting at the citpitol. Throughout the loyal States industry is more vigorous and effective than ever before. In the lately disloyal States, capital and labor, combining and cooperating under a Iree contract system ? which, to them, is altogether new ? are beginning with success to obliterate the traces of ruin and devastation. The feature ot* allairs which disturbs the public mind is a supposed divergence between the President and tin1 representatives in Congress ot the National i'nion party, from which he and they have delived their respective but coordinate powers. 1 agree that ii is altogether easier ami altogether moie desirable that the work of reconstruction, so happily begun, and so successfully prosecuted heretofore, shall he continued and ended under the auspices of the National I'nion party, and of the President and Congress, as the representatives of that party. I agree, therefore, that it would be a sad misfortune if divergence between the President and Congress should work a decline and downfall of the National Union party. It is dear to me, for J am identified with its rapid rise, its majestic progress, and its glorious work. Both the President and Congress might well expect to be equally involved in the calamity which should dismiss the Union party from the national councils, and see w ith mortification the great responsibilities to which the party had, in that ease, proved itself unequal, assumed and discharged by some new, yet undeveloped, political organization. But President, Congress, statesmen, and parties are of no real account, in my estimation. when weighed against the national life. Th? national life kttJy bung on (he ) i

issue of victory won in war. It now hangs on tho issue of reconciliation in pcace. The nation must live forever, whether it receive the needed care in any emergency at the hand of one President, Congress or party, or at the hands of another. 1 reasoned in this way about the triumph of the war. I reason in the same way now in regard to reconciliation and peace. I expect that in a year hence I shall be found to he right now, an I nm now admitted to have heen right one year, two years, three years ago. 1 don't think, how. ever, that there in any necessity for separation between the President, the Congress, and the party of the Union. I admit that the jealousies and suspicions of the last summer were only temporarily allayed? not extinguished? by the elections of November. They have been sedulously cherished and increased until they have revealed themselves in inflammatory debates in the press and popular assemblies. I admit that the National I'nion party in Congress has yet been unable either to accept or reject the counsels of tiie President. A wide and enduring separation cannot, however, be made between Congress and the President without having tor its groove a serious difference upon some cardinal political question*. At this point it will be well to settle for yourselves what it i> that we are desiring to see etlectcd by the President and Con- ! gress. We all agree that we desire and i seek just what this nation needs at the present juncture. We cannot accept less than this, because it would leave us still, if not desolate, at least, a disturbed and distracted country. We cannot require more, 'because even it more were desirable, yet that more is debateable, and must be the study and the work, not of ourselves at this particular period, but of ourselves and our successors hereafter. What, then, does the country actually need ? Most persons say reconstruction. I think it needs no such thing. The country is reconstructed already. It was constructed in 1 7> 1 . As then, constructed it was a I'nion of thirteen States, since multiplied to thirty-six free, ei|Ual, separate, self-acting, and, in repaid to internal aflairs, self-governing States. W e do not reconstruct that which has not been destroyed. There has, indeed, been an attempt at destruction, but it has failed. The political system of 17>7, constructed bv our forefathers, stands now linn, compact, complete and perfect, just as it came from the builders' hands. It was constructed not for eighty years only, nor yet tbr a period of civil war only, but for all alternating conditions of peace and war. and for ail ages and all time. Others say, what the country needs is the restoration of the anatomy of the nation. I think it needs no such thing. We have passed that point. The southern States, during four years, were deranged and disorganized equally in their constitutional relations to the I'nion. They have, however, since that time reorganized, Their organic powers and functions have been rcuc wed, and they have resumed their constitutional relation of allegiance to the I'nion. What, then, does the nation need f It needs just what I have dwelt upon so much and so earnestly in these re. marks. It needs reconciliation, and just now needs nothing more. It needs, more, over, a very little of this. It needs a reconciliation between the Senators of the Cnited States who are now acting and those Senators who, being loyal and qualiiied for membership of the Senate, had been already, or may hereafter be, elected by the people of the several States which were lately involved in the rebellion. It needs :? reconciliationof the same kind between the members of the House of He. presentat ives who arc now acting and loyal members already elected, or to be elected, by the people in the sumc*bcforcmciit ioned States. It needs just this congrcssional reconciliation, and nothing more. '" course, 1 recognize the fact that the ' separation which exists between the acting Senators and acting Representatives and those loyal Senators and Representatives who are already, or may hereafter he, elected in the southern States is understood to indicate a corresponding alienation between the constituents of these parties respectively : hut this does not all'ect the view I have taken of the ease. It only shows what i- wanted is rccouciliati* ,i between the alienated constituents, as well as between separate representatives. Let the reconciliation b<* made first, either in < 'ongress or in any of the constituencies, and it will follow in the other place immediately. The country cxhihitsat this moment this extraordinary and interesting phenomenon ? .t nation of States not only kindred, but allied, yet hostile to each other. For such a condition mutual reconciliation is the only practical remedy. We are prepared now to ask what hinders the application of the remedy in the legislative councils.' 1 he President *> posit ion is absolutely taken, well defined, and universally understood, It is this, namely : That so far and so fast as the unrepresented States present themselves in a loyal attitude by Kcpresetita. tives unquestionably loyal, they are en. titled to representation in Congress, equal, ly with all other States, and just as well a* if there had been no rebellion. The Representat ives of the National I'nion party in Congress do not agree with the Presi. dent, but 1 think they differ only in regard to non-essentials.

Correspondence of Baltimore Sun. Passage of the Bankrupt Bill- Its Character- Mr. Sherman on the Funding Bill- The Indictment against Mr. Davis- Attorney General's Opinion of it &e. The bankrupt bill has passed the House, and will undoubtedly pass the Senate. The creditor no less than the debtor interest favors the measure. It is intended as a permanent system, taking the place of State bankrupt and insolvent laws. It is to regulate, by a uniform code, the relations between debtor and creditor in the United States. This act does away entirely with all that remains in any of the States of imprisonment for debt. The criminal code of each State covers all cases of fraud, and this bill is so well guarded as to discourage instead of inviting fraud. as the insolvent laws often do. Mr. Sherman has made an elaborate speech to-day in the Senate in explanation 1 and support of the funding bill, lit* maintained with ability and earnestness the' right and privilege, under the Constitution, of the I nited States Government to an entire exemption of its securities from Stat* ?>r other taxation, even without any positive stipulation in the law creating such j obligation. Since the return of Mr. Speed, the At-torney-General, to the city, he has had interviews with the President on the subject of the proposed trial of Jefferson Davis. The law-ollicer of the Government does not, it is said, think the Norfolk indictment of Davis as sufficient. This indictment is under the law of 1791, which punishes treason with death. There is another law, passed in 1861, for the punishment of sedition or insurrection, the penalty of which is fine and imprisonment for one year, with or without hard labor.

Mr. Barbour is the Congressman elect from the Richmond district? a fact which attaches a double significance to his selection. No better appointment could have been made. VISITORS TO WEST POINT.

The panic in London, etc. Upon the announcement of the heavy failures in London, an immense excitement was produced, which exceeded anything of the kind since 1825. On Friday, the 11th, the Bank of England extended its loans until they exceeded four millions of pounds. Its reserves were reduced three millions, and the government suspended its charter to enable it to advance the rate of interest. Mr. Gladstone announced the action of ! the Government in Parliament at midnight on Friday. The bankers had represented j to him that that panic in the city was withJ out parallel in the financial history of the country. Mr. G. stated that the Govern- ! ment had informed the Bank that if it was found necessary in the effort to relieve the i commercial community to issue notes be- : vend the amount allowed by the charter, j it should not hesitate, and that GovernI ment would appeal to Parliament for an j act of indemnity. There was a better state of feeling on the 12th, and cotton, which had declined a I week previous, recovered the decline and ; was firm. In the Liverpool cotton market there was an increased panic at the commencement | on Friday (May 11), but less unsteadiness I at the close. At Manchester there was a complete ' pause. ? At Glasgow the iron brokers resolved to ' suspend business till Monday. In the produce markets at London prices i were almost wholly nominal. Taking into account the depreciation ; that has simultaneously occurred in English funds, railway and foreign securities, &c., the diminution in the market value of this ; property since the beginning of the year may be considered to reach one hundred and thirty millions sterling, to say nothing of the losses on cotton, cotton goods, iron I and other articles.

European papers per City of New York repre?ent that war is inevitable. There is no confirmation oi the European Congress. Earl Clarendon said, in the House of Sords, that the hnglish Government would not engage in tin' war, directly or indirectly. Napoleon, in his speech at Angere, said, "I detest those treaties ot 1815, which it is now sought to make the sole basis of our , foreign policy." This declaration was considered the sig- , rial for war, and the Bourse was panicstricken thereon. The London Tinw, in j commenting on this speech, says: "Only Napoleon can prevent war; but, unfortunately, the arbiter of the continent speuk^ j only to spread dismay in every exchange , by some doubtful utterance." { An attempt was made to assassinate i Count Bismarck, at Berlin, by a Kepubli- j can refugee, named Carl Blind. He fired five ineffectual shots, when Bismarck seized him and gave him into custody. Report on the Condition or Jlr. I>a- , vl?? The Constitutional Amendment, j Washington, May 23? Incompliance with the President's instructions, Dr. Cooper, United States Army, reports on the condition of Jefferson Davis, lie is considerably emaciated, the fatty tissues having almost disappeared, leaving the skin shrivelled. llis muscles are small, placid, and very soft, and he has but little muscular strength. He is quite weak and debilitated, consequently his gait is uneven and irregular. His digestive organs at present show a comparatively good condition, but become quickly deranged under anything but the most carefully prepared food.? With diet disagreeing with him, dyspeptic symptoms promptly make their appearance, followed by vertigo. Severe facial and chronical neuralgia, erysipalis, and inflammation of posterior scalp and right J side of nose, which quickly affects the j right eye, the only sound one he has now, and extends through the nassal organs direct into the interior nose. His nervous system greatly deranged, being much prostrated and excessively irritable. Slight noises, which are scarcely perceptible to robust health, cause him much pain, the description of the sensation being as of one played, and having every sentient ner\e | exposed to the waves of sound. ant of i sleep has been the great and almost princi- ' pal cause of his nervous excitability. This ! has been produced by the tramps of the I creaking boots of sentinels on post around the prison-room, and the relief of guard ! at the expiration of every two hours, which I almost invariably weakens him. Davis states that he has scarcely enjoyed over ? two hours' sleep unbroken at one time since his confinement. Means have been I taken by placing matting on the floors for the sentinels to walk on to alleviate this source of disturbance, but with only partial success, llis vital condition is low, and he has but little recuperative force should he be attacked by any of the severe forms of disease to which the Tide-water region of Virginia is subject. I>r. Cooper, with reasons, fears for the result. ? Debate is progressing in the Senate on ! the constitutional amendment to the House | bill proposing to extend the duration of ! the Freed men's Bureau three years.
