Tho folks of this burg know s woll
when to visit Congress thoy do M $o to
tho thealro to se somo star who Mi neon
thoroughly advertised. H was wulsporod
that Sonator McCrfcry of Kentucky,
would speak yostonlny on tho LonWtana
question and tho cotuequotico was u mil

nearly all tho negro members cf tho
House, Gov. Wannoutli and tho rival
claimants for Senatorial honors-Messrs.
McMlllln and l'inchbvc'.c. ,Mr. . Mc
Crcory'e speech was, as expected, most
humorous anl satirical ns well as rortiblo
and convincing; ho having proven con
cltislvoly. that Kellogg was a usurper and
a fraud. His tallies of wit and humor
wcro so pointed and tunny that It was
with tho greatest difllculty that order
uould bo maintained, tho provocation to
laughter was to great. Mr. McOriory
added very greatly to his reputation as an
an orator nnd wit by his speech of ycsicr
day and at tho samo time, as ho intended,
drovo a lnrco sniko Into tho Phichbaok
coffln which is now being prepared to ru
cotvo tho political remalca of "Pinch, '
whoso demise Is expected shortly a indi

O. O. HOWAI'.D'h 1'AhTon.
l'robably it is not gcnorally known that
Gon. O. O. Howard, of rrecdman's
bureau fnmo who Is now about being ox
amlncd by a court of Inquiry, asked for
by the sctrotary of war, on oc
count of his loosnes.i in money
matterc is hlnh iircsldinc deacon
in tho Congregational Ul.urch horn, com'
posed of tho purest Plymouth Book l'url
tans, and great is tho tribulation among
them at tho position in whjoh thoir saint
is placed not howovor, on account of hi:
rascalltlop, which thry pretend not to bo
liovo, but for fear of tho dWgraceful ox-
nosuro that is suro to como. This church
was built by funds cf tho Freed man'i
bureau, and porvertod from Its proper
use by a legislative trick to this purpose,
ltov. J. K Ilanklns, tho pastor of thi
church, wheruln Howard eni files rant, on
Sunday last In prayer hoped that th
Lord would confound General Howard'
onemics. It would havo been better to
havo prayod that his innoconco might b
mado apparent; but Mr. Banhin knows.
(that Is, if ho roads tho pnpora of olthor
party, and boliove? tho Secretary of AVar,
tionural Belknap, to bo an hono't man),
that O. O. Howard Is a guilty man, and
in tlio work of confJunding!iomombori
of tho court of inquiry will savo tho cant
ing hypocrite from his falo. Notwith
standing tho earnest prayer of Howard'?
pastor, it Is not beliovod that tho Lord
will go into olthor tho confounding or tho
whltowashing business in thia case,

Lleutonant-Gonoral Shoridan wa3 ho
foro tho Homo Committeo on military af
fairs yesterday, and in hU own pc uliar,
conclso and decided manner, gave his
views regarding n reduction of tho army.
Ovor Uio vast extent of country embracod
In bis command, tho Division of tho Mis
souri, which contained noarly all tbo bos
tlio Indians, thcro was but 10,000 mem ;
enough whon worked hard, but to roduco
tlio number would bo to luiporll the safety
of tho frontior settlomonts. Ho don't bo
liovo in CoDgress legislating too much for
tbo army, as It is domoralb.tag to both
men and otUcers. Ho bcliovcs in
tha reservation system, though ho
socs in it a gradual decrease
of tho red mon and Ilnr.l mixing of tbo
romnant with tho whites, as in tho caso of
tho Chorokccs. Ho was vory severe on
tho idea of moral suasion on tho Indians,
aod thinks that tho War Dapartmont
would moro 6fllciontly, cheaply and peace
fully administer Indian afl'uirs. Shoridan
is a hard hittor, nr. a had considerable cx
jiericnco of this kind, and 1 beliovo ho is
about right. Tho tbioves of tho Intorior
Department, tho Indian King, and tho
moral Kiiaslonlsts tho broadbrims are
not tho proper parties to deal with tho
Indian; ho is moro likoiy to gst uvsn and
exact justico from tbo soldior than irom
Indian agents or tract distributors. Now
thatthero Is no further ueo for foidleri to
ovorr.wo oloctiuus In tho South, do not let
our hardy mid bravo settlors on tho front
