Hon. Mr. Conrad.
In a reent,disjc.us4ion of tlvo Exemp
tion Bi'l in Congress, it appears that
the Hop, Mr, Conrad of Louisiana in
ly go so far as to abolish newspapers,
and thus Shut up the country in a state
of profound ignorance, as seems to be
the design, ot Mr, Conrad Wo have
not quite como to Unit, yet. There is
no telling what wo might come to in
theso revolutionary times, with such
indiscreet rulers us the member from
Louisiana but Heaven bo praised, we
have still left ua the freedom ot speech.
Why, such a proceeding, even in the
despotic North, has just plunged the
inhabitants of that already distracted
country into a ferment of excitement
and alarm. 'It is notour purpose to
scrocu the editorial brethren. Many
of them deserve to bo eternally con
scripted for creating just such public
characters as Mr. Conrad. The Press
have made him what he is, and tho
Press deserves, to bo punished for it!.
We havo only this amendment to
offer, however, to tho Honorable mem
ber's proposition and that is, that the
conscript otlicer go to harnessing up
Congressmen at Richmond, t'o thwith.
