'-'• - suppose that most of our readers have noticed that lynching is very com mon in several of the Sotrthern States. Reports of cases of this kind occur at very brief intervals, and it almost invari ably happens that the victim is a negro. A few days ago seven negroes were thtvs murdered by a mob in Tennessee. They were charged with the murder of a white man, but the trial had not been concluded ' when the mob took the affair into its own hands. The Legislature of Tennessee sub j sequently took the matter up, and passed a resolution condemning lynching, and calling on the Governor to arrest and punish the lynchers, but it is not believed by those who understand Southern sentiment that anything more will be done about it. ■Whenever the people are prone to resort to methods of. this kind, it is certain that they have very little faith in the law. This principle, however, is equally applica ble to very different cases. There is a cer tain class of men in this country who are continually betraying want of confidence in its institution?, though they do not seem to realize the significance of their position. These men are eternally cryinc out in alarm about some fancied menace to their liberties. They are perpetually imagining that the republic is in danger. They are always running . to the walls aid looking out for the enemy. They are for ever discerning some lurking mischief in the situation. These are the chronically scared persons who have at intervals ever since the war been shrieking against " cor porate monopolies ;" that being the phrase by which they are pleased to designate the aggregations of capital, skill and enter prise to which this country owes ,two thirds of whatever prosperity and progress it enjoys. It never seems to occur to these timid souls that the Constitution of the United States may be a sufficient bulwark against any kind of encroachments, and that these continued outcries are in effect impeachments of the institutions of their country. For if indeed there is nothing to hinder the growth and consummation of any kind of corporate tyranny, the founders of the republic must have made a sorry botch of their work, and this will hardly be admitted by the majority. The truth is that the ■ recurring agitations against corporate enterprises have their spring and inspiration in that spirit of malign envy which crops out in Commun ism and its congeners, and which would be satisfied by nothing less than the confisca tion of all - property, and a general "divide." An immune deal cf fustian and claptrap is put forth in this connec tion. and every demagogue and idiot who .:' mouths the - street cry of the hour thinks it sufficient jto pretend that he is moved solely by a passionate and consuming love v for, the. dear "People." , Traced to its foundation all this is neither ; more nor less than the social antagonism which has v always existed between the "Haves'" and the "Have Nots," nor does it signify how much it is disguised by fulsome - pretenses of public spirit, -; The his tory of civilization . should ' convince j : sober-minded men that progress necessi tates ! the expansion and aggregation of capital and enterprise, and that these con* j solidations not ; only produce no evil, but : that they remove . many abuses, and tend to greater economy and diminution of frie - tiin. They ■ are, in fact, ■■ in "no wsy menacing to freedom, bus on the contrary '. their development tends steadily' to,- ele vate the poorer classes,' to '■: give them less j arduous -. and f debasing . employments, \to diversify and extend industry, to stimulate production in v all its . forms, and thus to strengthen the progressive energies »f the - generation and make the world better and happier. All the agitations which are in : opposition ; to ■ the free : development -; of these agencies are, whether consciously or not, in the line of retrogression. They are checks upon ' civilization ; J brakes applied to its course : blindly ;if ; not maliciously. They start t cut from : false . premises and ths¥ work to; false conclusions. Intelli gent men , should, vVlheiefore, regard them with suspicion, and question their pur* poses and tendencies closely. -" r --- ■ . - • . -■■r'mmmm!mmmiaß3Bßgß&£&gk% THE ASSASSINATION OF THE CZAR. 'The assassination of the Czar is a useless and stupid crime. -. It involves no conse quences in the least degree . advantageous to ' any class of ' the people of Russia. If the Nihilists are ' responsible for , the cruel I deed they have by perpetrating it only jus- tilled the moat rigorous measures that can be taken for their ' extermination. The cause of human freedom is never advanced by brutalities such as this. A system is in. fault, and a man is murdered/" • To what rational end is this done ? The Nihilists have not killed the Emperor of Russia. They have simply assassinated Alexander the Second. The dynasty survives, and it remains as powerful as before. No step in advance has been gained by this crime, No light dawns through ■ such means. \ All . that is made clear is that the most elabor ate precautions are in the long run unavail ing when the life of an individual is sought by a determined and reckless secret organ ization. That is a very poor result to ob tain at such a price. But the blunder Of the j Nihilists , does not end here. ; They have made Alexander the Third Emperor. Have they anything more to . hope from him than from his father ? - If we may ■ judge from his past history assuredly they have not. i The new Emperor has been re cognized hitherto as an upholder of what is called the Old Russian party. He is a pronounced Pan-Slavist, it is true ; but there is nothing in his past to indicate that he sympathizes with the democratic aspira tions of the restless elements of the empire. And it must be remembered that the men tal position of an heir apparent is necessar ily very different from that of a reigning sovereign. With responsibility comes con- scrvatism. With supreme power comes the desire to maintain supreme power. It' is the doom of autocracy that it never can indulge in liberal policies without en- dangering its existence, and with the fate of his father before his eye 3 there is little probability that the new Czar will lean to wards democracy in any form. . The murder of the late Emperor points once more the satire of history. It is seldom that the tyranny of a strong ruler is avenged during his own lifetime. France was crushed under Louis the Fourteenth, but his reign ended quietly. Louis the Six teenth was a liberal and well - meaning prince, bent upon extensive reforms, and anxious to relieve the sufferings of his peo- pie. His measures gave them the first taste of liberty and justice they had en joyed for generations. And the first use they made of their recovered power was to destroy their emancipator. Under the firm rule of the Emperor Nicholas Russia groaned, but remained passive. His mania of military government converted the empire into a camp. He banished dis cussion. He excluded ideas. Ho sent thinkers to Siberia. He encouraged blind and servile obedience. The people pa- tiently submitted to all this, and even when his system had broken down under actual experiment they remained quiescent. Alexander the Second not only contem plated but carried into effect' unexampled reforms. He gave virtual freedom to ten millions of serfs. He removed the prohi- bitions from literature and the press. He permited the universities to inculcate po litical doctrines. He opened the door to progress and a higher civilization. And tor all this his reward is assassination. It is true that in the later years of his reign he had largely abandoned his earlier views in regard to the safety . of ; per mitting popular ideas full scope, but it is also true that this change of policy waw forced upon him by the reckless intem perance of the Nihilists. He had been assisted in his emancipation policy by the nobles, . who might have tendered ; that policy abortive, but when this class realized' that the new conditions demanded sustained exertion on their part, they appear to have lost their patriotic enthusi asm, - and for some time had seemed to be observing the struggle between the Government and the anarchists with com parative apathy and indifference. The Nihilists had forced the Emperor to adopt harsh measures, and then they cited those measures as justification for their murderous plots. The folly, of their course has been shown from the first in the vagueness of their programme. The truth is that their leaders have been almost without exception visionaries, who were not capable of anything but de structive efforts. Assassination is a very vulgar and brutish business, and demands no intellectual force for its organization, and the Nihilists have never risen above assassination. No useful end has ever been served by such methods. On the contrary, their em ployment almost invariably leads to the reinforcement of rigorous governmental policies. The Revolution might have saved France but lor the Reign of Terror. That put Napoleon Bonaparte at the head of affairs, and brought on the Empire. The Reign of Terror cost France fifty years of progress. The assassination of Alex- ander the Second will probably push back the hands on the Russian liberal dial in the same way. The man dies, but the system remains, and it is the system which is alone responsible for existing abuses. '■ For years to come, however, every appeal made to the Russian Government for more liberal institutions will be met by a reference ', to this catastrophe. - "This is the result pf "an attempt to introduce greater free "dom," the new Czar may well : say, " therefore it is safer for me to . revert ito ; "the stern repressive policy." v - There Tis no argument in assassination. It is in fact an . abandonment of all argu ment. No instance of it can be . cited which has bettered the condition of the supporters of the policy. The Nihilists have done what they have long been trying to do, and they have after all accomplished nothing. ' A somewhat . weak but not nn amiable sovereign has been killed, but his successor is already seated on the throne. The system is intact, and its enemies are stained and made infamous by a futile i and wanton ; crime. Nihilism is anarchic and ruthless, but it does not rise to the dignity of rational ; revolution. MAHONE CASTS THE DIE. Senator Mahone , has made ' his choice, and it is with the Republicans. Of course this is his own affair, and ; perhaps he has been somewhat astonished '•■ to find himself so central a figure of late. -He \ was per fectly free ', to take his stand with either party, however,' and no imputations can lie against him for having made the election he has."' The : Democrats have no right to be angry with , him, > neither have the Re publicans any .: reason .to " claim . a victory. The outcome was after all quite capricious, and the party . which has " had . the luck to secure J this ,; erratic . Senator ji. may well enjoy its fortune . with as little cackling as possible. * "fl'-fl J- J .py.-fl ...flflflj- pi "'•J: A granite ; monument ' is *at last to be placed over the grave of Abraham Lincoln's father, in Pleasant I Grove township, eight miles : southeast 'of v Mattoon, 111.

The chief sensations ;of the ; day were of course the fierce attack of Hill upon Mahone, . and the hitter's vigorously defiant reply. It was the general comment that Hill's speech materially strengthened j the solidity of any compact that may have been made between Mahone and the Republicans, as the Georgia Senator's threats could not possibly have any other 'effect with a cour ageous mau like Mahone than to nail his col ors to the mast. ( The scene was very striking, as Mahone, "slight in figure but bearded like a pard," paced up and down the area in front of the Clerk's desk and hurled his scornful retorts at the large-framed Georgian, and the galleries broke out in applause and the floor with roars of laughter when he quickly re plied to tha question whether he • wa3 not elected to the Senate as a Democrat by say ing that he came hither as a " Readjuster," a description which his present attitude in the readjustment of the Senate organization, and of political power in general, was at once perceived . to be notably felicitous. On the whole, the little Virginia Senator, despite the suggestion of the game-cock in ids manner and appearance, made a decidedly strong im pression upon his auditors today, and was conceded on all hands to have justified in this impromptu debate his local reputation as a fine speaker and a man of power.

Washington, 1 : March 5 14th.— McDill "of lowa and Cameron of Wisconsin took the oath to-day. _ • Pendleton called up his resolution respect ing the reorganization of the Senate com mittees. Allison moved an executive session. - ' The Democrats opposed and the Republi cans favored it. The . ayes and noes being called, Mahone voted with the Republicans, which created a profound sensation, followed by applause iv the galleries, as it was regarded as conclusive of his intention to vote with the Republicans throughout. Pendleton made a speech, saying he knew nothing as to the alleged bargains, but the omnipresent and omniscient members of the press had v whispered that there have been mysterious and extraordinary visits to the other end of the capital (the White House), and had connected the name cf a distin guished' Senator witb ? the dispensation of patronage and organization ; that. there had been a conference at the capital, in which champagne and satisfaction had been almost equally present. These, too, had been con nected with rumors as to the organization of the Senate. He did not know what was the foundation for these rumors which had filled the air. The imputation on Democratic members was unfounded. . Allison's motion to go into an executive session was rejected — 37 to 35. v , Hill of Georgia believed that when all the seats were filled the Democrats would still have a majority, since Mahone would vote with them. V-vOT;;.-". Conkling stoutly denied this. • A resolution was here introduced and laid over, offering condolence to the . Russian Government and people, vv Finally Pendleton suggested that the Dem ocrats should withhold two votes and let the organization proceed. They desired no mean advantage, and no contest of physical endur ance.' He moved to adjourn, pending which the vote "' of condolence with Russia was adopted unanimously. Adjourned. ' v - V INTERESTING SCENE IN THE SENATE— MAHONE UNDER FIRE. Washington, March 14th.— In the Senate to-day Pendleton affirmed that the Demo crats had nothing to gain by organization ex cept the power to proceed with the confirma tion of a Republican President's | appoint ments. It was a dangerous precedent. The Republicans proposed :to pair : two elected members here present with two men yet to be, and .who may never be elected, B It was no undue haste that they were exercising in trying to organize. "V , • - v Conkling said : " He who excuses accuses." Pendleton was fleeing when no man pursueth. Ha had either thought necessary to defend his party or create some impression on the contrary. He referred to the Democratic caucus as an Ecumenical Council, which had at last wearied of the question how the inde pendent party of the Senate was to be cap tivated, - It had become weary of arranging the machinery which was to force the gentle man from Illinois (Davis) to walk by the wheel of the Democratic chariot.- After it had exhausted the resources of statesman ship it came in with . a report which was de fective in some regards.' ■• For instance, it had put both Senators from Ohio on the Judiciary Committee, , in order that that great State might not only be j the I land of law but the law of j the land. vlt seemed to him tbat nothing fl could . be ' more .'; unwarrantable, more . lacking in ;■. utility 'or ■■■ more scant " of propriety than for the Republicans to con sent to the organization _« of i the Senate against the constitutional majority of - the Senate, : to j the end that that organization might be overturned on Wednesday or Thurs day next. ;It seemed to him that such a pro ceeding would be beneath the dignity of the Senator. He might say, in reply to the gen tleman from Ohio, that the suggestion as to withholding votes had not \ originated on the I Republican side, but had come from a Demo ! cratic Senator who was able to vindicate him self. He commented on : Pendleton's asser tion ■>. that ; champagne and satisfaction had j hunted in couples at certain dinners as being i extraordinary, and he hoped that it would be modified. -x He '. also ; hoped ' the - Democrats would withhold two votes and let the organiza tion proceed, or else go into executive session. a Hill emphatically declared that when every seat was filled the Senate would be Democratic ias now. •■'-. Otherwise jhe , had | been deceived. Thirty-eight Senators were sent here to sit as Democrats, i? That is one-half of , the ; Senate.' One member (Davis) was sent as a Democrat, by Democratic votes, and he had announced in lofty and I patriotic words that he would be fl true 'p to ?-: the '2^ trust X -J. which g sent himh'fl. If, as '-. Conkling f_ stated, the ~- Re -1 publicans would have a* majority, how ; had j it been accomplished ? */ Not ■ by. ; States '. or i legislatures. The Republicans must have seized | a Democrat. Who did it? Conkling had I not," and he did not respect any, one who did. He asserted again that the Democrats had 33 . votes, and Conkling would not deny, iU^*^ "'■• Conkling, however, did pointedly deny it. P Hill did not blame a man for changing his 1 opinion, but it was his \ duty *to f iniorra hi? ' a.foeiste-5 oi such change, any no ; wmat fly ■ flfl. v had done that. He asked whom Conkiing relied on for votes .---* ■■-.. -•-- ' - Conkling arose as if to reply, ■ but merely j went to the desk of the Vice-President, and : Hill continued,, excitedly; asserting that no man in this body would be guilty of treachery to his constituency.*:. He denied the reports that Harris and Brown would vote with the Republicans as absurd, and T denied the right : of the V ice-President to participate in organ- I izing the Senate, vv^ Whose was that one-rote' ' the- Republicans relied on ? Who . was ' ambitious to do what j no one had ever done stand up in this high place and proclaim that he disgraces the commission he holds ? Who can it be? Did the Republicans receive him with affection and respect*.: Is he worthy of association* .. Is he worthy to be a Democrat or Republican ».-v He reveited to the question of Federal patronage being used to buy votes and keep j the Republican party in control, at- approved the President's message on the subject of tenure in office. He then returned forcibly to questioning the Republicans as to their new recruit, and denouncing him imper sonally as a traitor, -v Harris regretted that; Hill had dignified the newspaper twaddle respecting himself by noticing the rumor, and denied the story in a positive way.' Mahone, who occupier! a seat on the Republican side, advanced to the edge of the area fronting the Clerk's desk, and proceeded to reply . to Hill. That gentle man, he said, had manifestly engaged in an effort to disclose his (Mahone'e) position on the floor. .'?&•}- sl£* :''■ - Hill — do not know what your position is. How could I disclose it ': V ) Mahone — gentleman has assumed not only to be the custodian here of the Demo cratic p*.ity of ', the nation, but has tried to assert the right to speak for the : constituency which . I have the privilege, in part, of - representing here. -He has done so without their assent. 5 Addressing;- himself v directly to Hill and advancing toward him: "I owe you, sir, and I owe those for whom you un dertake to speak here, nothing. [Marks of encouragement on tke Republican side and in the galleries.] , I came here like a Vir ginian, not to represent the Democracy for which you (Hill) stand. I came here with as proud a claim to represent the people as you to represent the people of Georgia, won on fields where I ■ have fought • with yon anil others in the cause of my people and of that section in the late unhappy contest. That contest, thank God, is over, and as one of those engaged in it, and who has not here or elsewhere to make an apology for the part he has taken in it. I say I am not here as a parti san, nor am I here to represent that Democ racy which have done so much injury to my section of the country. The gentleman un dertook to say what constitutes Democracy. I hold that I am infinitely a better Democrat than he. , [Laughter.] He who stands nom inally committed to a full and fair vote and an honest ballot j should see that ' they ran be had in the State of Georgia, where tissue bal lots are fashionable. [Applause.] I serve a notice on that gentleman that I intend to be the custodian of my own Democracy. I do not intend to be run by that gentleman's caucus. lam in-every sense a free man here, and trust to be«ble to protect my own rights and defend those of the people whom I rep resent—certainly to take care of my own. I do not intend again (addressing Hill directly) that you should undertake to criticise my conduct by innuendoes, I wish the Senator from Georgia to understand just here that the way to deal with me is to deal directly. We want no "motions of discovery " to find out how lam going to vote. [Applause on the floor and in the gallery, which was repri manded by the Vice-President.] I regret that so early after my appearance here I should have found it necessary to obtrude my remarks on this body. I would prefer to be a little modest. I would prefer to listen and learn ; . but I could not feel ' content after what had passed to day to sit silent. 5 The gentleman (Hill) by all manner of insinua tions, direct or indirect, has sought to dis cover who the Democrat is that may choose to exercise his right to cast his vote as he pleases, and to differ with the gentleman's caucus He seems to have forgotten that I refused to take part in the caucus, which he not only waged war upon me but upon those whom I represent — who lias presumed to teach the people of Virginia honesty aud. true Democracy. Yes, sir (addressing Hill), you were duly notified that I took no part or lot in your political machinery, and that I was supremely indifferent to what you did. [Laughter en the Republican side.] You were notified that I should stand on this floor representing in part the State of Virginia. Certainly the Lesiskture which elected me did not require ma to state that I was either a Democrat or anything else. I suppose the gentleman (Hill) could not get here from Georgia unless he said" he was a Democrat anyhow. [Applause and laughter.] I came here without being j required to state to my people j . what .*, I rfj am. i i They ; \ were all willing to trust me. I was elected by the people, not by the Legislature, for it was the issue in the (canvass, and no man was elected to the Legislature by the party with which I am identified who was not instructed to vote for me for the Senate. The gentleman has been chasing all around this chamber to see if he cannot find a part ner somewhere. He has been looking around, occasionally referring to another Senator, to know exactly who that Senator was who had the manliness and boldness to assert his opinion in this chamber, free from the dicta tion of a Democratic caucus. I want that gentleman to know that henceforth and for ever here is a man who dares to stand here and defend his right against you and your caucus. [Loud applause and much laughter, provoked by the violent gesticulations of Mahone.] , Hill, who again took the floor, hoped that no one imagined that he intended making any personal reply to the remarkable exhibi tion the Senate had just witnessed. • He had only asked who was the Democrat that ex pected to vote with the Republicans. '_ To his astonishment the Senator from Virginia said that he was » the man. Would the Senator (Mahone) say that he was not elected as a Democrat ? "He said he was not required to state that be was a Democrat, and in the next breath he said he was a better Democrat than himself. Addressing himself to the Republicans, Hill said : I commend him to you. Take . good care of him. Nurse him well. [Laughter.] .■ After an amusing colloquy between Conk ling, Hill and Logan, Hill said that this was the first time in history that a Democrat had shown his Democracy by going over .to -the Republicans. He referred to the proud his tory of Virginia and to her great names- Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Henry and Lee — none of whom ever accepted a commis sion from one party and came here to repre sent another. Mahone asked if Hill asserted that he (Mahone) did that and Hill evading the ques tion persistently, he declared that if Hill in tended to make that statement of him it was unwarranted and untrue. :■: Hill (composedly}— Was not the gentleman acting with the Democratic party, and was he not elected to this body as a Democrat ? (With a fierce tone). Answer that. Mahone (quickly)— Sir, I was elected as a Readjustee Do you know what Readjustee are [Applause and laughter on the Repub lican tide.] Hi?!— l understand that there are in Vir- j ginia "Readjusting* Democrats and "Debt- Paying" Democrats ; but, as I .understand it, they are both Democrats.- We have noth ing to do here with that issue.'" The question of the Vfrginia - debt is not to be settled in this chamber. :. I ask the Senator again, was he not elected to this national body as a mem ber of the National Democratic party • Mahone — Are you answered now? Hill— 1 I § concede that- the Senator spoke truly ,- when he said I did not know what he is ' (with; a' puzzled air) what is he? < [Laughter.] Everybody has understood that he voted with- the Demo-; era Did he not support Hancock for the Presidency, and did ! he' not in the Presiden tial * election proclaim himself a Democrat ? [A Democratic Senator— Make him answer.] Up to this hour it was not known which side of the chamber or jin I the country how the gentleman I would I vote. The Senator from . New York (Conkling) seems _to have infor mation that somebody who had been elected as a Democrat would . vote I with the Repub licans, and I wanted to find out who that was. vlt seems that I have uncovered him. [Laughter and applause on . the Democratic side.], v. i, "... "'-. '-:' v .'■'-..' vv ... •■'■ After more argument in the same style,; Hill : : congratulated j himself Lin having suc ceeded .where the press of the ; country had' failed, and disclosed Mahone's intentions, and again in the kindest spirit appealed to Maheoe to be true to the Democracy of Virginia. I ; Logan drew a parallel > between Hill's flat tering treatment of tbe Senator from Illinois (Davis), and his severe handling of the Sena tor ■ from Virginia, . and said '. the difference was attributable to the fact that the former, who never was a Democrat and was not to day, and who w&» elected from a Republican State, was voting with the Democrats, while the latter was not. He defended the tight of a man to change is political opinion. Hill himself was ©nee a Whig. ,■ v v . Hill, being interrogated sharply by Logan, said he reserved the right to criticise the pub ' lie acts |af I Senators without * dictating .to them ; their course. He ; w«uld . rather lose control of the Senate J forever than ste the soil of Virginia dishonored."-, He did not say Mahone would do it, but he saw a precipice yawning before him. Ii he voted as the Re-' puYilicpjis wanted him to, God help him, for, he's gone,' and: he, knew the Republicans in th'jir hearts | felt r ; the same. They despised treachery, and honored him (Hill) for trying to save Mahone from the charge of treachery. fl. Mahone (rising) — I cannot allow the gentle man to make any such insinuations. ;;'- r; v Hill — make no! insinuation.* fl'P, Pflfl--^ •'■'■ Mahone---You do, and an unmanly one. Jig fl\ Hoar expressed his emphatic indignation at , ■ the degrading exhibition which the Senator j from Georgia had - made. v " \ was ? the first 1 time in the politics of tb9 country when a i Senator had undertaken la *a."ance .an act i to deliver a lecture to his j peer, and ' inform him if he did a certain thing it would De de grading and treacherous. V- It was none of the business of the Senator from Georgia how any [ other Senator should cast his vote. % No slave ■ aster 'or plantation overseer should crack ! his whip over an American ) Senator. [Ap plause.] The utterances of the Senator from Georgia vere an insult to the representatives of the American people, v That gentleman had been chosen as a Union man to a State Convention, and had cast the vote which had carried Georgia into the rebellion, and from that day to . this he had learned : nothing either of constituency or constitutional duty, or of the propriety of : personal • behavior. [Applause .on the , Republican side.] .The gentleman * had undertaken -a ' comparison between the position. of Davis and' that of Mahone, with much honied commendation of the former. The Senator' from Illinois had been elected by the Legislature of a State which had an average Republican major ity of from j 50,000 jto 100,000. . The Davis Republicans were not in a majority in i that Legislature.' 7 They were numerically in j a plurality, and it was the Independents and Democrats of that body who elected him to the Senate. The people of Illinois were . then, and are now, largely Republican. lam not criticising the Senator from Illinois. I should deem it unworthy of me to do so. He has thought it his duty to cast his vote for the Democratic organfiation of this body, although, as he informed ns, it was repugnant to his taste and judgment in many particulars. Mahone who owes his teat to a State which cast 84,000 Republican votes and 34,000 In dependent Democratic or Readjustment votes, as against 90,000 Bourbon regular Democratic votes, will vote (if he does so) for tie organ ization that commends itself to his taste and his judgment. That is j the | only difference between the two Senators, aqd is that the logic of the Senator from Georgia [laughter], that there are Democrats in the South who mean to vote down men I with | whom they differ, but who 'do not mean to assas sinate them ? There are Democrats in the South who mean to live in a nation, and Dot in an aggregate of petty provinces any longer. . There are Democrats in the South who do rot mean to live any longer in grave yards and among tombs, whose face is toward the morning, and on whose brow the rising sunlight of the future generations of tbis country is already beginning to be visible to such Democrats. The avant courier of this column has already reached the Senate chamber after long waiting and yearn ing. The Republicans, of the North de sire to. stretch forth a friendly hand, but the j desire is inspired by no miserable ambition for office, for political victory, but by a spirit of patriotism : which loves the South fully as much as it loves the North. It is in the spirit of union, not a divided country ; it is in the spirit of the future, and not of the past ; it is in the spirit of union, and not of sectionalism — we are holding cur hand to the brave and noble Democrats of Virginia, whose representative took his seat to-day on this floor.
