1 Election of U. 0. 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.

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.

A Meeting of the Mechanic, of Rich
mond at Montlcello Mall.
ACTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL CONDEMNED
S.gKCniS, HKBOI.IJT7ON!, Ac.
In pureuanr.. of the notice given in yester
day's JotTRSAt, and Evening A'eiee, a largenum
ber of the mechanics of Richmond convened g
Monticello hall at 8 o'clock last evening, Mr
D. H. Alley, president of ihe Mechanics Union
in the chair.
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. The
deepest interest was manifested iv the remarks
of thevaiiaaus speakers, an. a committee, con
sisting of Messrs. W. R. Hall, E. A. Dayton
and J. 8. Thompson, was appointed to draft
resolutions expressive of the sense of tho meet
ing.
I'lie report of the committee was received,
and, after being amended, were unanimously
adopted.
The resolutions are as followi:
Whereas, the Mechinlci ofthe city of Richmond
having assembled in pui.ljj meeting to consider the
operat on of tbe onlinauce passed by the ily Coun
crl on the 6th day of September last, to regulate the
traffic by wh.eled vehicles through the stroets of Ihe
city ; be ittheraf re
Resolved That we belinve th« ordiuan-e to be use
less and uncalled for, and Its operation to bra adverse
to the prosperity of th.; manufactories and tiro busi
noss tuto'est of tho ciry.
ReßOlred, That the damage caused to the stnetsof
the city by allowing all persons to do hauirgor
transportation by wh-eled vahlcl-M. in their oun

but has caused to bo thrown out of employment, in

call upon that body to remedy the evil they have
Inflicted upun the commuuily, by tho inrrueiliate re

Destructive Fire Near City Point—
Mnlee, Oxen and Grain Burned. —A destructive
fire occurred on the farm of Dr Richard Epea,
at Bermuda Hundred, near City Point, night
before last. 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. In
addition to Ibese 10.-ses, all the farming imple
ments on the place, of which there was a great
number, were burned. The corn burned em
' )raced tbe entire crop of tbe farm. The Are
was tho work of an incendiary.
