The Radical" have been busy in placing a
verv strong irame within the past few days,
which is intended to operate npon the coining
elections, more than for any other purpose.
It in to make things appear as if the utmost
harmony is now in existence between the Pre
sident and their party. This, in thefaceof the
repeated and earnest expressions at the White
House of a determination not to yield to the
insane spirit of faualicism which rules the
hour, is rather incongruous reasoning
The House to day refused to go into a night
session, very much to the disgust of Stevens,
who has been exceedingly anxious to e.x|?edite
business and make bp for wasted time. The
leading extremist is more eager to get home to
his iron and his radical constituents than many
others of his confreres. The approach of
warm weather, however, is having the effect
of hurrying on legislation. Colorado has been
settled, as far as her admission into the Union
is concerned, and (lie Canadian reciprocity
bill defeated within two days. The civil rights
bill also passed,* though it will go back to the
Senate for concurrence in some slight amend
ments beforjfP is ready for the Executive veto
or signature, as the case may be. This bill
makes all the negroes citizens when it becomes
All speculation on the subject of Cabinet
changes has ceased, and quiet reigns for a sea
son. The impression gains ground that no
official changes or appointments of any kind
will be made before the adjournment of the
present session. This is a great disappoint

Many a husband and father who would kill
a fellow-man for lacerating the feelings of his
family, lacerates them more himself than all
the world beside.
The Chicago Tribune says that ?' the Presi

faction show its hand?but wash it llrst.
To the stricken mother, the couch whereon
her child lies dead is a lone island of thought
surrounded by a solemn sea of silence.
The Radicals don't like the President's
speech. The speech gives some evidence that
the President doesn't like them.
It is strange that so much is said about "onr
common country" when everybody knows that
if is a most uncommon one.
The Chicago Tribune savs that its " spare
ribs are tickled." We rather think that they
are pretty severely poked.
