THE STRENGTH OP THE STEVENS
FACTION.-The full strength of the
faction of confiscators in the House
was yesbc lay brought out on the
amendment to the Freedmen's Bureau j
bill, moved by Mr. Stevens. The |
amendment in question, summarily
stated, was to declare the whole of the
Southern States to be conquered ter?
ritory, or more practically, to take
overbody's property and give it to
eveiybody else. The party of gene?
ral confiscators numbers exactly
thirty-seven, neither more nor less.
That it should number even so many
as this is a reflection upon our civili?
zation. But, all things considered, it
is, perhaps, a matter of felicitation
that the faction is no stronger than it
is. Let us invite all our readers to
carefully scan the bst of confiscators.
