a most admirable selection. E. T
Taliaferro, of Giles, was made Speaker of
the Hour ot Representatives, over sev

Both Speakers are giving great satisfac

we earnestly desired the election of Mr.
Taliaferro, whom we knew to be splen

great ability, and everything is running
smoothly under hia masterly hand. E.

from the Gubernatonal chair, of New

some pertinent remarks, and paid a

The political situation is unchanged
owing to the adjournment ot Congress for

orders from the headquarters

obey the orders of the Court, no-doubt as
suring them that they would be protectee
by the powers that be. There is gre u
hope that the committees, which have

Congressman Whitthorne, of Tennessee,
Chairman ot the Naval Committee, for
ihe great skill, patience, industry and im
partiality with which- he has conducted
the investigation ot his very able commit

He has done a difficult, arduous
nd indispensable work, in a way to ren
J..r his countrymen of all parties a high
public service. Beside this, he has earned
honor in history for as long as this land
shall have a history, on account ot tbe
courage, tenacity and vivid intelligence
with which be has repelled alike the
threats and the blandishments of the en
trenched rings which, with their men and
.'uethode, he has put in the pillory ot

In this connection it is proper to state,
that Mr. Whitthorne is developing deci

the United States Senate. And it would
be no injustice to other distinguished as

that he is the peer of any man in Ten
