New'York Evening yP6 remarks.:
The value of Kent's speeches does not
consist in the wisdom of--his judgments,
but in the frankness of-his'admissions and
in. tbe fullness of his .revelations, Tor both
which merits we publish: all that is materi
al of his'Iate performance; which niay be
brieflly summed up in 'the following propo

Second That this tendency, will proba

Third That if, as-.tiepprtcd, the northern

-Sixthly Mr. Heitt is opposed to .nomi
nating conventions in; iolo.. both to lh6

ihej'esults that necessarily flow from them.
He'says: "They.are an '.unfair representa

section of the controll: :pf the .weaker.
They impair the weight of the -smaller
States, and enhance of the larger ones
beyond the contemplation of the constitu
tion. They are arso-,irrespdnsible, while
exercising a domination: influence .over the
bc'ntiments' find action? bf the people." In
their stead-he recommends a return lo the
old Congressional caucus .system, which, he
thinks Would, secure a fair representation pf
the party, rnd the nominations ot ,whicu
would be made by responsible men.
We couid.suggestTtnotlter reason, which
Mr. Keitt'h'as not slated, for the Soulh's
preferring the caucus ,sysera. It would
give the presentExecutivp.a.controlIing.in
fiueuce over the nomihu'tion, while the delJ
egates to a convention havo lo look for a
reward lo a new incumbent. Of Mr. Bu
chanan Keitt and his friends are sure; if
ihe party forsakes him they fly to eils
they kiiPw- not ot. ,
This is the first suggestion of a, revival
of the caucus', system that , ha3 been made
publicly, we believe, but it is very easy to
detect ihe origin of if, aiid the motive for
the change. Air. tsucnanan can nope tor a

of Europe, with' the exception of France,

There is no doubt that more marble has

Horace Bell in New Albany.
A dipatch announces Horace Bell ar
rival in New Albany last night and was
received at the Theatre, where Miss Lenin
was personating' him in tho new drama
with,v(icifero'us applause. We understand
lliai'he underwent an examination at Bra
deiibnrg on Tlursday, and the amount of
liait.required was S750, which was given.
Wo hope the excitement which has been
produced by his capture in our sister city
will now abate. Louisville Journal.
So ends tho great Bell difficulty, we
presume. Horace is free, and will not,
probably, bo troubled again. His father
and brother are free, and are not likely
to be knidnapped ,agairi after the lesson
that1 tho Bradeiiburgers have been taught
by tho recent excitement. We, of tKis
State; can be conteut to leave the matter
so, though those Louisville "scoundrels de
serve some punishm'ent'in spile of , the pre
cedents 'they plead for unauthorized arr
rests. Th6 New Albany Tribune is still
oxcilcd, and justly indignant, 'and demands
the requisition' of the kidnapping, but we
think when it take's a cooler view of the
matter it will consent that the requisition"
movement (if what die Louisville papers
say of nrrests by bur olEcers in Kentucky
be true) onco begun will leave both Stales
a heavier burden than they will like to car

and one day when passing the Houi
Lords, his curiosity induced him to mi
an effort to step in and see them. Ni
were admitted without an order, except
noblemen's servants. Webster being ignor
ant of tho rule, requested admittance.
"What Lord do you belong to?" said the
doorkeeper. "To the Lord Jehovah," re
plied Webster. "Tbo Lord Jehovah," re
peated the keeper, "i have kept here.se.ven
years, but 1 iiave never iieara or ot sucn a
Lord." "Jack, said ho to his Jellow, keeper
on the front steps, "here's a chap who says
he belongs to the' Lord Jehovah ; do you
know such a Lord ?" "Never" heard of
him," says Jack". "But," said Webster
(willing to keep up the illusion,) "there is
such a Lord." "Pass'em in," said Jack,
"I 'spose it's some poor Scotch Lord."
