^ithmond ^ispatch. TUESDAY . . . ! ?'. .'. .... ....MAY 29, 1806. Mr. Stevens's New Scheme of Reconstruction. Our telegrams inform us that Mr. Stevens has made another effort to "head Andrew Johnson. " He proposes to acknowledge the present southern State governments "for municipal purposes," and to allow the people to proceed to organize their governments and form new constitutions, to be submitted to Congress for approval or rejection. Thad has "gone clean daft." The southern people are not so anxious to secure representation in Congress as he imagines ; and they certainly will not allow the President's policy to be over-ridden in this manner. They will stand by Mr. Johnson as long as he adheres to his own plan. Thad's scheme possesses no merit. He cannot compel its adoption by the south ; and it will not be voluntarily accepted. We have no room for further comment. The Election in West Virginia? The Constitutional Amendment. At the election in West Virginia lust Thursday, the amendment to the State Constitution disfranchising southern men was adopted. The vote, however, was no test of the wishes of the majority of the people, aiucc it seems to have been secured by downright bullying ami brow. beating in those counties in which radicalism is in the ascendant. Quiet, inoffensive men were kept from the polls. In Ohio county, (including the city of Wheeling,) the people were better informed on the subject, and letter protected in their rights, and the result in that county was a large majority against the odious ameudment. The Register announces the result in the following language: 44 All Right! Ohio County Redeemed, Regenerated, Disenthralled ! Democratic majority, 341 ! ? 475 gain in seven months." B. II. Smith, Esq., United States District Attorney for West Virginia, has written out an opinion, in which he contends that the proposed amendment is of no force even if adopted. He makes out u strong case ; yet we suppose there is little ground for hope that the Radicals care anything about constitutional difficulties, lie says the constitution defines the qualifications of voters ; and that the Legislature, in violation of the constitution, provided that only a certain class should vo'e upon tinproposed change. To give the amendment force, and incorporate it into the constitution, it should have l>cen voted upon by all the voters; and then, if a majority had adopted it, the exclusion of southern men from the polls would afterwards have been proper. This is undoubtedly the true view of the matter; and if there were a court in the State of any ability or integrity, so the question would be decided. The Wheeling JfojLster asks the public outside of the State not to accept the result of the election as a correct indication of the political sentiment of the people. " The amendment was only voted upon by 44 a portion of those citizens who can coiu41 ply with the conditions of the registry "act, and none at all of the large class 44 whom the amendment is intended to dis44 franchise were permitted to vote for or 14 against its ratification. Shameful out14 rages upon the rights of the people were 44 perpetrated in Marshall, Marion, and 44 other counties on the day of the election. Our people will yet achieve 44 freedom in spite of all the disfranchisements, the test oaths, registry acts, 44 and other unjust legislation, the Radicals 44 dare to inflict." The Clarksburg Conscrvalivt also tells of

similar outrages, and gives t lie following story : " Isaiah Y<?ung, living on Lost creek, ! committed suicide by throwing himself into his well on last Tuesday night. Some days ago ho requested William Batten, one of his neighbors, to go round and set- j his neighbors ? th.it he was satisfied that he had done wrong in reporting them and having them arrested during the war, and in reporting them to the Registrar, and having their names stricken off? and that : lie wished they would forgive him, that he , could not die in peace, &c. Afterwards his wife called in Ebenezer Bond and re- i quested him to go round and see his 1 neighbors and ask their forgiveness for having reported them. He seems to have j committed the act in a tit of mental de- 1 spondency, growing out of his participa- j tion in these matters." The same paper says that "Judge C. J. 1 " Stewart, of Ritchie county, on the 19th ! " instant, decided that the test oath re- " quired to be taken by attorneys was unconstitutional because it impaired the "obligation of contracts; itwosin conflict " with the presidential power of amnesty " and pardon ; it was retroactive and penal, "and therefore ex post facto, and that it I ?' deprived a person of his property with. " out due process of law : ruling that a 1 41 lawyer's profession and license was as J 11 much property as a merchant's goods, as 44 he made his living thereby." Constitutional Amendments. Why should the Radicals desire to have j the Constitution altered ? They pay no t respect to its present provisions. They | have totally changed the nature of the Government t citkoxU altering the Constitution except in one particular. It strikes us that, following their example, the eonservatives, when they succced to power, cau certainly restore the Government to its original form, even in spite of any new I constitutional impediments which may be put in the way. in the passage of the ' Civil Rights bill, the Frecdmcn's Bureau j bill, the bill to protect officers from prose- 1 cution for illegal acts, and of other measures, the Radicals have set an example I which it is giving their opponentstoo much 1 credit to suppose they will not follow. ' Imitating the remark a witty Englishman once 8* de to hi* neighbor, that " orthodoxy j is tad fcetorodoxyis your doxy," we ah*D say upon occasion that what we believe Is (constitutional and what the Radicals believe is unconstitutional? no matter what that is. The Fajeuuul ? The June number of this | agricultural monthly is on onr table. We t again recommend it to the farmers of Vir- j ginia and thoaouth generally.

Corr??pondfnr? of th?? Rlchmotipl VWpatftfc. RrwiLLTiLLK, Ktm Miy22, 1866. This botlv, compo&cd ?tf delegate* from all the southern States, met tn-Hay ?t 10 o'clock A.M. It wan pleasant to see the Cordial greetings exchanged bv old fVlends long sep.-^MM, of n?\t HdquafnUnccs just formed. A season of .social worship (conducted hv Rev. I)r. W. V. Bronddns, of Virginia, and A. P. Williams, of Missouri,) vraa enjoyed, uud the Convention was then called to order hy Rev. Dr. P. H. Mell, of Georgia? the president at the last session of the body. The Convention was permanently organised by electing the following oflicern : President. ? Rev. P. II. Moll, D. 1)., of Georgia. Vice- Presidents, ? Rev, Dr. Jeter, of Virginia; Rev. Dr. A. P. Williams, of Missouri ; Rev. Dr. R. B. C. Howell, of ! Tennessee : Kev. S. L. Helm, of Kentucky. StcreUirits. ? Rev. G. B. Taylor, of Virginia; Rev. W. P. Yeamall, of Kentucky. The President made an appropriate address on assuming the chair, thanking the Convention for the honor done him, and earnestly calling upon the memhers to , aid him in the discharge ot his duties, j While the tellers were preparing their j reports, the Convention united in singing [ and prayer, and remarks were made by Kev. Drs. Jeter, Fuller, Poiudexter, and | Howell. Dr. Jeter urged that the Convention I should come together with the one .single ; aim of promoting the interests of the Redeenter's kingdom ? that they should banish se}f from their deliberations, forget all sectional or private ends, and consider only, in a spirit of kindness and brotherly love, what is best for the general good of the j cause we love. Dr. Fuller warmly expressed his delight j at once more meeting with brethren he : loved, and from whose counsels he had j been so long debarred. lie spoke of the j afflictions through which we had passed, and gave an affecting narrative of the death in Baltimore, from a wound received i at Crampton's gap, of a son of Rev. Dr. | Mell. Me alluded to the fact that this 1 Convention had never been political in its j character, and eloquently urged that we should now meet again "on the same old terms ? sinners trusting in a common SaI viour." Kev. I)r. Poiudexter, of Virginia, was j deeply alfcctcd by the remarks of I)r. Ful- ' ler, for they reminded him of the two noj hie boys he had laid on his country's altar, i But in that hour of sore trial he had fpnnd 1 relief and comfort in prayer such as could j be found nowhere else. He eloquently urged the cultivation of a spirit of prayer, and that in these dark days we use the I "power of prayer" as a panacea for our troubles. I Kev. Dr. Howell, of Tennessee, urged that we needed more of a living trust in the God who rules and controls the universe, The Convention and the large congregation present were deeply moved by these eloquent remarks. Adjourned till half-past 2 o'clock, P. M.

EVENING SESSION. The Convention received ;i communication from the Texas Baptist Convention urging the preservation ot' the organization of the Southern Baptist Convention ? that while cultivating a friendly spirit towards the Baptists of the north, we shall still continue to do our own work in our own way. The usual committees on credentials, religious excises, &c., were up- j pointed. A committee (consisting of Revs. A. M. Poindcxter, A. I>. Sears, and A. F. Crane, Esq.,) was appointed to otler the amendments to the constitution rendered necessary hv the changed state of the country. The report of the "Sundayschool and Publication Board " was read by its corresponding secretary, Rev. Dr. John A. Broad us, of South Carolina. The ; report detailed the operations of the Board, the difficulties it had encountered, and the measure of success that had attended its labors, and laid before the Convention it-, plans for the future ? urging the importance of sustaining our own Sunday-school work, both because the agents of the northern Board would not be received by our people, and because many of their . publications were of a character that we could not conscientiously circulate among our children. The report was referred to the following committee : 1. Operations during the war. 2. Missionary work* 3. Publications. 4. Colored Suuday Schools. By permission of the Convention, the | report of the Bible Board, located at Nash, ville, Tenn., which was prepared for the Convention which met at Augusta, (la., in 'G3, but failed to reach that body, was read, and the questions involved referred to a committee. The Bible Board was abolished at the Augusta meeting, and the question of it> revival will come before the committee. The report of the Domestic Mission Board was read by its corresponding secre- ! tary, Rev. M. T. Suiuner, of Alabama. } The report told of the great work this j Board had done among Confederate sol. j diers, and of what had been accomplished since the close of the war in supplying the j great religious destitution of the southern country. It reported a liberal response to | the appeals of the Board, especially in i Maryland and Kentucky, but represented the necessity of largely increased contributions in order to meet the demands made i upon the treasury. The report gave a de- 1 tailed history of the Coliseum Baptist | Qhurch, New Orleans, its financial condition, and the manner in which it came into , the possession of the Convention. It also j told of how a missionary of the "American Baptist Missionary Society" took posses- ? sion of the house of worship by military I authority against the wishes of the congregation, ami of the dilticulties experi- , cnced in regaining possession of the house j even after the close of the war. The report was referred to appropriate . committees. On motion of Rev. G. B. Taylor, of Virginia, Rev. Dr. Fuller was requested to preach the convention sermon to-night, in the absence of both Dr. Brantly and Dr. Tichenor (the principal and alternate). NIGHT EXERCISES. Long before the appointed hour a large crowd assembled in the capacious house of worship of the Baptist Church to hear the j sermon by Dr. Fuller. The text was : " As j thy days so shall thy strength be," and was an eloquent presentation of the sustaining power of the Gospel. The speaker made several allusions to the afflictions of the war, and earnestly expressed the hope that in the present religious persecution in Missouri, the spirit of the olden martyrs might be revived and the grace of God sustain llis servants in marching along the path of duty. There is a large delegation in attendance ; upon the Convention. The number will bo . stated when the Committee on Credentials shall report. ? ! DIED, On Monday.
