We Bolio tbat tb Virginia Enter prise, Canon Appeal and other partisan jonrnala, stigmsliie lb present Hons of ttepretentaiiTCw as "Confederate Congress." If we know anything abont the matter, the Honge was elected by the people and matt therefore represent the feelings ana detirei of Iho people. We think when the will of the nation is ei pressed by the votes ol its citizens, that all parties ought to respecfally bow to that dcobion. Wo are not looking at this matter from a partisan point of view. bat actuated solely by a sincere desire to see sectional enmities die out and become extinguished. When the war closednow eleven years since, the very best, most farseeing and patriotic citi aena of the north, who were roady to make the greatest personal aacrilloos and dare the greatest dangers to support the government and preserve the unity of the nation, were the very first to extend the olive branch. They without reservation of anv character said to the citizens of the lately rebellions states, "Come back to us, resume your status as Integral portions of the Union, accept the si tun tion with candor and with the deternv illation lo make a prosperous and penes- ful future and to forgot the past." It is foreign to our present purpoae to dis cuss the events that followed, including the reconstruction ools, their effects, the ra of plunder under the carpet-baggers, their defeat and the re assertion of the principles of ordinary houtsty and common deoenoy in the governments of the formerly rebellions Btntes. In 1874 the masses of the people, tired of coni airmail being made the dupes Of plun daring politicians, declared in an uu mistakeable manner, their wish for Deace. They were wearied with the oeaseless contentions of politicians, who were then as now, only seeking to perpetuate the memory of past differ ences for tho very basest purposes simply to enable them to still further plunder a people whom they had robbed bo often and extensively that fraud and peculation had become the tale. The nation worn with the wrelched squabbles of a' pack of plunderers quarreling over their booty, said in thunder tones, " Feaee be still." It was time. Boffer- iug from commercial panic, from the impoverishment and loss of purchasing power of third of the Union, from ex oessive taxation, from glgantio revenue frauds, from wioked waste and profligate expenditure of the publio moneys, it was full time to take a new departure. The result was that by the removal of dis qualifications in the Southern States and :. t a very full popular vote in all sections, a house of representatives was elected, each - - member of which might be reasonably supposed to have been elected by a ma jority of the voters of the district which . he represented. We suppose that such a result was that which was contemplated both by the law of the land and the will of the people. : It that be the case, ig it not unfair, unjust and an insult to the majority of the nation to call its representatives so elected a " Confederate Congress." By that term indicating, if It indioates anything, that the Congress now in session was not the Congress ot the United States or that it sought in any manner to lessen the power, the diguity, the honor of the people of the Great Republic; of tbo United States ot Atnerioa. If that were the case that Congress would not sit for a day longer than would suffice for the people to preolpitate thomselves en masse upon the traitors and drive them from the capitol they had disgraced. But suoh is not the case. From nil sppearanoes Congress is legislating for the benefit of the country, for the enforcement of the laws, for the punishment of the guilty and for lightening the frightful burdens under which the nation is reeling True, from the South where the carpet bag fungi have been extripated Southern men are returned, from the West, from the North and the East representative men are sent to Washington. What else could be expected? What else should be desired? It is the object of repre sentation that the people of the several . States appear in the forum ot the country in the person ot their Delegates. That is the purpose whioh the eleotion of House of Representative is to fulfill. To complain that suoh is not the case is to betray ignoranoe, folly and nothing but an exhibition of partisan niuloe, to whiob any rea pec table paper ought to be , ashamed to plead guilty. TBB SAFE BURGLARY. Our readers will remember, the cele brated safe burlary conspiracy. It was an attempt to blacken the character of an estimable citizen of Wasblngtoo, oneCilnmbna Alexander, so that bis testimony might be invalidated and be subject to a criminal charge. The villainous conspiracy failed, but what is known of it, stamps its authors as a set of the most atrooious soondrols Ibat ever cursed the soil of America. As the members of the Washington ring were the only persons who would be benefit ted by the conspiracy, if it had proved successful, suspioion has always pointed to them a the prime movers in the rascally plot. One of them Harrington was tiied, but as might be supposed, a packed jury refused to convict. The wonder wit that the fellow was not acquitted. Since then, the ringmcn have put on a good many airs and tried to bluff off nil further inquiry. To securo entire immunity' Col. Wtiiteley formerly tbe head ot the Government secret service, who was and is supposed to know all shout the affair, was tolled off to Mexico. The ringmen then thought they were secure and again had recourse lo bluffing thoso who accused them of wrong doing. . That fellow Sheribord even had the impudence to bring suits against Dana and Whitelaw Held under the provisions of tbe gag law which Luke Poland ruined himself in fathering. Now however tho truth appears likely to come out. By the tele grams published this morning, it will be seen, that Col. Wbiteley is promised im munity if be will return and testify Whether ho knows anything or not, it is not possible to tell, it is supposed he does. All we can say, if he knows the history ot the infamous plot wo trust he will disclose it, no matter whom it may affect. Tboae Dis trict frauds and tbe sate burglary episode torn), one ot the most discredits, ble chapters of the last few years, and it is to be hoped that the guilty will be ex posed and the innooent vindicated. If Shepherd and bis followers are not guilty, then is he and they a set of tbe most badly maligned individuals in the country. If tbey are not amenable to the law or the condemnation ot their fel low citizens, they ought to be voted a mural crown for patience under wrongful aocusation. The wonder is that they themselves did not bo ventilate tbe whole affair as to satisfactorily demonstrate their innooence. NEW TO-DAY. BOOTS ABD SHOES.
