by congress return to plague, not tho

question whether it is not better for
congress to talk much and do little.
The Somervillo, (Tcnn.) 'Falcon' of
mu week: says : "There is not a shadow
of doubt that the independent party in
Tenncssoo desire to rouuito with tho
democracy provided tho union can bo
effected on conservative grounds.
Kycn Colyar, tho leader of tho inde

republican party in this atato is now
fofced'to carry tho dead weight of forty
thousand negro voters who aro demand

whoso clamors for civil rights never

not well calculated to invito the co
operation of tho men who honestly
followed tho fortunes of Andrew
Johnson in 1872."
