FROM THE FEDERAL CAPITAL.
Washington, Deccmlx r 4, 1878.
Tlit! opening day of congress was not of
s)cciul interest in cither house. Senator
Blaine moved an inquiry into the subject of
equal rights of v iters at election, and rep
resentative Wood sharply criticised that
portion of the Prebident's Message which
asMimc that voters in the south were in
timidated ut the November election. Ho
called attention to the fact that there was
intimidation by government official un
constitutional officials in New York city,
and that Mr. Hayes had omitted to con
demn them. Nothing was done tir pr"oscd
as to the contemplated investigation of the
"oipher dispatches." It seems to be under
stood that, unless the radicals precipitate
such investigation, the Potter committee
will, at an early date, undertake the work.
There is. as heretofore said, a disposition
on both sides tu evade the discussion of dis
turbing questions until later in the session.
Mr. Thurman stated a profound truth
when saying that under our form of govern
ment there had been, and must ever lie,
two parties one a party of the jtcople, and
the other of class and privilege. Any can
did man who reads the Biiunal mcssaire of
Mr. Hayes, or the report of his secretaries,
w ill not fail to see that the party, which is
not of the people, but of class and privil
ege, is the party to which these gentlemen
belong. Even Mr. Schurz, red Republican
us he was, and theoretical Democrat as he
thinks ho is, invents new Federal offices,
and asks congress to appropriate money for
them. The secretaries of war und the
luvy cling to the old abuses,
and the old excrescences. The Attorney
General asks for money to pay a legion of
officers unknown to tin spirit or letter of
the (institution. In all the messages and
rerts ordered printed by congress yester
day, there is not a suggestion that any su-
pertluous oflicer maybe dropped, that sny j
dollar nny be saved" to the tax-paver, or!

New York Times, and other Huntington
organs. We learn, however, from Hunting

It may occur to nnv Southern neotilo who

on that string for a long time, slandering
the Texas Pacific Company, and telling the.
Southern people in effect, that Huntington
proposes to run a Southern transcontinental

mention is to avoid the South altogether, as
