We say the thought is startling. It is not so startling that the man who introduced into .the rebel Congress the celebrated resolution that all IJhion officers captured in company with colored troops should be shot, should defy the patriotic sentiment of thc country, by such utterances, as that he should be supported by cheer after cheer and vehement applause by such leaders of the northern Democracy as Randall, of Pennsylvania, and (’ox, of New York. ** No wonder that after the excitement | cooled oft. some of the more thoughtful ! ones bec alarmed at the prospective I b?.d effect it would have upon their party.

A prominent Republican leader is credited with the remark that the speech was not only a crime, but a blunder, and that tho Democratic party in applauding and endorsing the remarks of a rebel who stood up in Congress and defended the horrors of Andersonville, had simply ‘ braided the rope for its own execution.” Notwithstanding the magnanimity of the Republican party had conferred upon Hill and his southern associates the very amnesty by which they were enabled to again occupy seats in Congress and control a majority of votes in the House, yet with ingratitude beyond human comprehension, he turns upon his generous opponents in his first speech, and charges them with “disfranchising intelligence” “disordering Poor fellow ; how he is to be pittied!

Foine time since, Jefferson Davis brought suit in the court of chancery, in Vicksburg, Miss., against the heirs and legatees of his brother, Joseph K.

The Republican National Committee \ met in Washington tor the purpose of t deciding on the time and place of holding the Convention for nominating .^candidates for President and \ ice President.
