a ucrS as these have been thundered
into the ears of Mr. Ha:es by his
piretended fraeniis, as at settled fea
fatre of Democratic policy, and at
length the incumbent grew alarm
ed. and,as it is saad,,penly favored
the seating of Kellogg. If such re
ally be the case, he has lost faith
in the justiceof his cause, and that
providential concurrence of events
by which his political fortunes have
thus far been controlled, and now
lie looks for support to the weak
appliances of a failing party.
Having abandoned the horns of
the altar for the base strategy of
corruption,it would be by no means
wonderful if he thus ministered to
his own discomfiture. The enemies,
whom he had, through the equities!
of a wise policy, converted into
friends, now consider that he has
turned his back upon them,and no
longer hold his acts in that grate
ful remembrance which once welled
up into a generous and genuine
enthusiasm on his behalf.
The end is not yet. Ere long the
Federal capital may become the
scene of strange events.-j N. 0.
It is understood that in a short,
time a motion will be offered in the
Senate for a committee to investi
gate the charges made by Judge
Spofford as to Kellogg's tampering
with the Returning Board to secure
hiseleetion to the Senate. Should
these charges be sustained the RIe
publicans could raise no objection
to the displacement of Kellogg.
Whethi the Democrats when they
obtain control of the Senate will
oust Kellogg in any event is to be
doubted. Some of bheia have al
ready expressed themselves on the
subject, anddeclared that they will
oppose any movement against Kel
logg unless for cand; that he. has
been voted in by a majority on the
merits of the case, just as Mr. but
ler has been, and that should Ie
the end of it, unless it is shown
that he procured his election by
fraud,corrnption or other improper
mnotive. No man has more reason
to bless his stars than Kellogg, for
there are at least a good half dozen
Republican Senators who would not
have voted for his admission under
any other circumstances.

Gen. Ord was before the House
Committee on Foreign Affairs, and
gave a highly interesting sketch of
the condition of affairs on the Rio

the necessity for an increase in the
military force of that section of the
country. The committee were fa

In the report of the Secretary of

however, by the act of March 3,-,

strength far beyond the Irquire

about the same numerical strength.
There is no determination on the
