The investigating committee of the
Alabama legislature appointed to exam
ine into the record of United States Sena
tor Spencer, of that State, have concluded
their labors. The result shows Spencer
to be a true blue ltadical. The report
proves that "during the election of mem
bers of tbe legislature, he abused tho
.army, postoftice and Internal reyonuo de
partments of the government, brought
the evlli of war upon the people, caused
them to flee from their homes, prostituted
bJi office to corrupt United States olllclals,
farced his appointees to pay money and
commit crime, all to secure his election
to the United States Senate. If one half
of what the committee report Is true,
Spencer Is one of the greatest scoundrels

A t'H AB.llTEKlBTH; OKOIIII.E
A correspondent ol the Ylcksburg Un
altl, who signs himsclt Hampden,
plauds the suggestion which has been
made to Invite (jueen Victoria to purtlci
pate In the Centennial celebration in July
Hampden's applause, however, Is in a
spirit of sarcasm. He wants tho Queen
to visit America ; he wants her to look on
the great, free, hearty and prosperous
North, and then he wants her to go South
to Mississippi and ga.e on the retro
gression, the shrinkage nud comparative
leanness of the State. Ho then pictures
what her majesty would see there that
is, what Hampden says she would see
there: An executive department with
"a foreigner, a stranger, an interloper
and nn Intruder, n military uini-
an adventurer" nt of u " H'ls
lalure composed ot "an Ignorant nnd
brutish rabble," nnd a mixture of "dirt
aud Democracy" in allelic political affairs
ot the Kt ate. Hampden elaborates these
Ideas in true Southern style nud then
turns Ills nttentn ! - ' ' -which
he wants the Queen to contem
plate, also, for the purpose of picking out
Itsdefects, and when she is through, he
wants her to ask herself cnudidly what
there 1 lo be proud of In a centennial
Republic liko tills; he wants her to go
borne and tell her people hoiv much hap
pier, freer aud safer wo would be if we had
n miutroon like iici.-tlf, Instead o! a "low
bred, drunken, Missouri woodcliopper
and Illinois leather dealer for a master."
He wants her to tell hsr people this :
That thoughtful and reflective men-long-time
Democrats (ioi0 undeceived
believe the Republic a signal failure, mid
Ciesarism, with its convulsive and bloody
ciianges, only a uimg oi nine, sure to
come, In the not far-oil future. Some of
as begin to see plainly, tuat we want a
souu inroiie m rest on, insieau oi me
fickleness, tolly and frenzy ot a Demo
cratic mob, ready at any time, from sec
tional prejuuice or oilier impulse to re
nounce uio COUSlllUIIOIl.
Aud if the Queen did visit Mississippi,
it would be a fitting conclusion to the
programme as laid down tor her by
Hampden, that she should be permitted
to look ou him nud Ills like lu the State.
She would find lu them to as great n de
gree as in the ignorant rabble, the re
sponsibility for tin) past condition of
all'ulrs in their State ; she would tlud, not
men, who, taking hold or dilllcultles,
master tlieiu, but a set ol grumblers nud
fuult-llnders, who, like the Lotus Haters,
find no pleasure in the war with evil ; she
would tlud lu them a (also
standard of public virtue and
capability, a standard which can sue i.e
merit lu worth, lu mind or lu character
which springs from the people, and which
would keep the bhoeuiaker, the wood
chopper aud the leather dealer out of
public ofllces to which only "gentlemen"
should be eligible, nud she would
find that thteo are the men
wim "trout ooiiii tiirune to rest
on." These are a few of tho things
