'X'i Republicana votcd with the Demócrata ngainst suspension, including Messrs. Hi.aik and Stottgiitox of this Stato. Without a suspension of tho rulos the bill oanuot bc reftched tliis session, so wo may hopo that it is dend. Knough of the yuting no Itepublioims may, however, bo btought to a reili.inp; won of their positiou, and plodgo thoir votos for a now bill, which Mr. could iniroiucoat nny timo.

Aye, Mr. M.OUTON, " with carpot-bags well filled : " that's just the rub. Tho Southern people olaim that the army of carpetbaggers carae down upon them types of Pharaoh's loan kine, to thrivo and fatten upon the subst mee of the land, to iill their empty curpot-baga witb the spoils of offioo aml spticulation, and to assumo the role of " lords and masters," backed by the central government at Washington. That's what's tho matter, Mr. MonTOÍT. The Liberal Republicans counted without their host in assuming the re-cloction of Senator O S. Ferry, af Connectiout, a9 a victsry.

That was all. - It is porhaps a fair quostion : Ara there any Liberal-Cincinnati-Greüloy Iiepublicans in Connecticut? Tuis is how the Chicago E:vn!r,n Post, radicul Eepublioan, atlvisos Comruissiouer EliMOXBS to dispose of himself : Yesterday morning the proceedings terminatcd, and Edmonds stands acquittod on oach article. The testimony was, however, so damaging that he ought, in dccency, to rosign. Xhe moral effect of a man holding olfico aftor so exhaustivo an oxposure is dangerous in evory respect ; and if Mr. Edmourta has any unsolfish love for tho Stato that has unwisely elevatöd hira to oiïïce, his rcsignation willbo in Governor Biüdwiu's hauds bct'orc many days. Does the Post soe anything green in Mr. JÜQKONDS? Kesign and ackuowl odge his guilt, in the faoe of an hmorahln aayiittal? I{ he duu't cure on his own 3count he has too much respect for tho High Court of Impeachment to snub it by such a declaration of want of confidenco ia its judgment. The Sexate " Supplemuntary Civil Rights Bill " ran against a snagf in the House on Tuesday.

Tho Djinooratic minority has it in its power to prevent any irmgular or forced legislation duriug tho elosing days of thn sossion, and their constituents expeot thom to do so. Thafc curse of Congress, absonteeism, should oease for a few days.
