Senator*. Frank Blair (Democrat) has been elected - to the United States Seriate from Missouri; Henry Wilson (Republican) from Mussa- I" chusatts, and Lot■ M. - ~qg| from Maiao,r-,both re-elections; Ganorai .John A. Logari (Republican) .rorasgW.uoi-;, and l|en. William Windom from Minnesota ;. and Hon. F. T. Frcling huysen has been nominated in caucus by - tho Repulicans of New Jersey. Tbe election of that rabid, radical, and ranting Copperhead, Frank Blair, is the sorest infliction tho country has been vis ited with since the cholera of 1832. The following remarks, made by him in the ■• House of the Legislature of Missouri tho 'a day beforo his election, against a resolu tion which was introduced, approving tho fourteenth and fifteenth amendments and I the reconstruction laws, show the vindic [ tivo spirit which animates this man since | he has fallen from the high estate he held r as ono of Sherman's most trusted officers '■ Yesterday, Gen. Blair, ou motion to re fer Major Pope's resolution to the Commit tee ou Federal Relations, of which Mr. Blair is chairman, spoke on the question, ! stating that bo was in favor of the thir , teenth amendment, and believed the South generally assented to it, but thoreconstruc , tion acts he declared unconstitutional, and referred to the decision of tho Supremo Court in the case of Cummings against the State of Missouri; also to tbe case of Mul ligan aud Bowles, who wero tried by mil itary commission in Indiana duriug the war. Referring to his letter to Col. l>rod hcad, he used tho following language : Sir, my letter, which has been referred to, contended that the military should b.male to undo their usurpations at the South. I say so still, and you have only to withdraw them from the South aud their work will be undone. [Appbuse.] Tbat carrion crew of carpet buggers, wbo are gorged with the plunder and drunk with tbo blood of the vanquished pto ple of the South, will disperse themselves in an instant, if not sustained by the bayonets of the Federal government. There is no item in that letter that I take back. 1 stand by it. I believe in the construction given to the constitution of the United States by the Supreme Court—that this reconßtruo tiain was unconstitutional. My hope in going to Congress, if I should attain that high position, is, that I may aid in with drawing the troops from those Southern States which aro held there to saddle upon the backs of that people a parcel of carpet-baggers and I scallawags, followed by an ignorant mass of negroes; and to prove to the people of the South who have shown a disposition to abide in good faith by the arbitrament of arms and renew their allegiance to the government, tbat they will be allowed to resumeself-govi-rnment themselves, aa we have done in Missouri, and whilst 1 may not expect to carry with me the gentleman from St. Louis, I believe tbat we can surely and certainly count upon the co operation of the large body of liberal men who as. iotaid us in relieving ourselves from similar tyrannies in the State of Missouri. We hope the Democrats will renominate Blair for 1872. With tbeso sentiments, be would not carry a single Northern State. Wo would like to know where there are any boldiers in tho South now. Wo have understood that they were all withdrawn, save a few iv the forts and at the arsenals to protect the property of tho government. We shall bo rejoiced if the Democrats finally determiue to conduct the next can vass on the issue of slavery, the fifteenth amendment, the reconstruction acts, and the deadly animosities of the war. If thoy bring these things up again, we shall have an easy time of it in re-electing President Grant. If the South is deter mine to perpetuate tho h.atos of the war, — the North will be forcad to adopt a sim ilar course. The Outlaws or ..iirtu Carolina. Press dispatch-from Wilmington, North Carolina, dated yesterday, says : The commander of tho Federal troops in Robeson county. North Carolina, has tele graphed to Washington for more troops, tbe small number now in that county being unable to cope with the outlaws. As a measure of precaution, a squad of soldiers accompanies each train on the Wilmington, Charlotte and Itutherford railroad, Lowry, the negro leader of the outlaws, having threatened to attack the trains. It is conceded that little can be done towards the capturo of the outlaws with out a Urge force of men aided by bloodhounds. The outlaws alluded to are a numerous baud cf robbers, who have established their camp in the swamps of Robeson county, and defy the authorities. They sally forth daily and commit depredations murdering aud robbing. A few days ago they shot a gentleman down within a few steps of the United States soldiers' en campment, and not long since they even carried a soldier away from his post who has not since been heard of. Their crimes are many, and it is time energetic measures were adopted to break up tbe baud. . om9*a ■ — The Ibon-Clad Oath.— Th. committee on reconstruction yesterday considered the pro priety of repealing so much ofthe test or iron clad oath as precludes such persons as entered the rebel army when minors and have since attained majority, from subscribing to its pro visions. Tae subject was referred to Messrs. Porter, Upson and Morgan, wbo were directed to make a report at tbe next meeting of the coninittee.— Washington Chronicle. What is tho use of tinkering at it in this manner? Do the thing grandly, and sweep away all tests and disabilities at once. It cannot possibly do any harm, and we know it will do good. It is a measure, as we h.vo urged before, which should te perfected by this very "pro nounced Congress." If it is left to tbe next, which is not so thoroughly Republican, the parly will not receive the full credit of the measure. Repeal the test-oatb, and then remove all the disabili ties under the fourteenth amendment. That is tiie way to perfect reconciliation. «•» — Eight of the twenty-two members of tho Minnesota Stste Souate, and fifteeu of the forty-eight members of its Houso, were born in New York. Not one of either House is a native of Miunesota. And yet nobody thinks of calling tbem "carpet-baggers." city are gm.iily excited, and not without cause, over the action of th. City Council in refusing tho petition of the Tredegar Car Manufacturing company, and thereby not only throwing two hundred and fifty mechanic, out of employment, but causing a panic nmong the retail immimta and !« ao.rd ing-house keepers at the wist, end o' Broad street. , The indignation against the members of the Council is very strong, and they arc denounced on all sides. It was a mos infamous act; but it will cure itself. It will teach the workingmon in hereafter to l.ok better to their interests when the city elections take place ; and in future they will elect men who have some sym pathy with the working class, and suf ficient intelligence to advance their in terests. A gentleman remarked yesterday ia our Ig, after learning the facts, that i be better lor the citizens to join to and carry the cars through tho to the Danville depot, than that a lould \)o put to this enterprise, and irkingmen remain idle.

The object ofthe meeting was stated by the President to be to take tbe necessary action o the subject of the rejection by the City Coun ell, on Monday evening last, ofthe petition o the Tredegar Manufacturing company, relating to the transportation or cars through th. stroets of tho city, reference to which action was raadu in yesterday's Joimtut,. The meeting was addressed by several of tbe leading mechanics of the city, and tho course ofthe members of tbe Council, in disregarding the interests of our workingmen, was strongly condemned. , It was stated upon good authority, tbat it was in contemplation by that bod* to spend of the tax-payers' money aboai $80,000 or $100,- COO in the Northern cities, (or the purchase of material for the use of the city,—all of which can be made as well in our own shops.

About eight o'clock, the large new barn and stables on the premises, were discovered t.) be on fire, a_d all efforts to save them from destruction proved ineffectual. The barn had been lately enlarged aDd improver*, and was a valuable building. It contained 2,000 bushels of corn, all of which, b provender, was destroyed. In the stables were nine mules and four oxen—all fine animal.-, constituting the working force of the farm every one of which perished in the flames.
