contains the following editorial:
At the last oession of Congress the
Hon. Mr. Vallandighnam, of Ohio, an..
Burnett, of Kentucky, now a promiL -
ent leader of the Kentucky rebels,
were almost as intimate as t.he
Siamese twins, for they were alwapyý
together. At the present session Mr.
Vallandigham is left to do the bust
- he can for the rebel cause wdh
the assistance of Burnett; but h,
t seems to labor as willingly for a war
with England, in behalf of our southl
- ern rebels, as if his Kentucky fiiend
were at his side, The speech mat
the other day on the Trent settle
Sment by this patriotic Vallandigha=
r just such a speech as Burnett or
Breckinridge would have made in
a our Congress on that subject. So it
- was understood in the House, and ae
