The act ion of Congrcss affords no real hope of coinproniising, and we cannot prodict auy othor end thau dissolution aud civil war. This is certainly to be the end, unless the jieople take the matter out of the hands of the politieians. t5P Mr. Tatlob, for forty one yeara a clerk in the New York Postolfice. has been appointed tho suootwaor of G-en.
