Itf tlio United Slato's S6ntito on FrI
day Inst, tho poinpons and arrogant
'Sumner received from tho mouth of
Lyman Trumbull of Illinois so sovero
'una so inoritcd n rchuko for Jiis "ns
BUiiititlon" his "mis-statements," nnd
Ids 'impudence" that wcro ho otlier
llian ho 13 wo should look fur a change
lit liU manners. Mr. Trumbull In his
'remarks, which wero blttorly stinging1
and sarcastic, showed up In nil its mean
tie and pettiness, tho opposition with
which Sumner had invariably met tho
measures and tho men who favored tho
admission of Virginia. Sumner had
charged that a loyal delegation from
Jhat Stato had been denied a hearing at
tho door of tho Committee room, of
which Commitleo Mr. Trumbull was n
member, and although this had been
authoritatively denled.yet had Sumner
iaken no notice of tho denial. Said Mr.
Trumbull "can Impudence go furth
er?" Sumner for onco was stung out of
his ordinary composure, and squirmed
and wriggled In his chair. Mr. Trum
bull seeing this proceeded, "Oh, sir, I
"havo not done with tho Senator from
Massachusetts. I shall tear away all
theso Imputations and strip from him
all his assumed infallibility and super
iority In tlds body:" Mr. Trumbull fur-i
thcrsaid,"Didany oneever know him
(Sumner) to step down from the lofty1
position of effrontery he has assumed."
And yet again "if tho Senator's assur
ance and effrontery was such that ho
conld not resist his inclination to assail
others, ho must gird his armor about
ldm lot it bo stripped off and cxposo
him to tho American people, as an im
practicable obstacle in tho way of legis
lation." Tho pith of tlio whole matter lies In
'tho last few words. That Sumner Is "an
impracticable obstacle," no ono doubts,
and tho wonder is, that the really pow
erful and able mon In the Senate should
havo allowed such n wordy, empty,
vain and weak nn extremist to havo
attained and maintained such eminence
in their body. "Wo do earnestly hopo
that this speech of Mr. Trumbull's may
bo tho fore-runner of others to tho samo
effect, which may Anally pierce tho

Virginia and her Persecutors,
Tho bill to admit Virginia without
..restrictions, which passed the Houso of
Representatives, a few. days since, was
arrested in tiiQ Senate and saddled with
sundry amendments, .offered, by Drako
of Missouri, allko ungenerous and un
just. Heretofore tho charge of theso mal
contents has been that .tho Stato, was,'
not, "loyal," but.now that sho has ful
filled all tiio demands, which havo been
mado upon her,shoyet is denied froo admission.-
Tho difficulty lies, not in tho
Stato or the people thereof, but lu tho
unreasonable and lrrcconclblo extrem
ists pX Congress, who prefer to sco tho
Union dismembered rather than abate

.sired tho admission of the State, but tho
tfew headstrong and vindictive men,
who havo acquired a certain lullucnco'
in Cougress, withstand tho voico of tho
people, to carry out their own mali
cious policy, and admit the Stato only
under galling requirements., And so
.matters will bo, as long as ono-ldead

Dr. Schoeppo is on trial for murder, uot

unteers." Wo havo In provious numbers given
tho testimony of Aaron Smith nnd
Willi m Evans,government witnesses,
very much to tho samo purposo and ef
fect with the foregoing testimony con
cerning tho Club meetings. Charles
Gibbons, another government witness,
testified that ho "attended thrcoorfour
of tho so-called secret meetings," but
no question was asked him regarding
their character or tho proceedings which
took placo when ho was present. Tho
inference to bo drawn from this fact is,
that ho could testify to nothing which
would condemn them or cast suspiciou
upon the motives or conductor tho per
sons who nttended them.
Wo havo then one dozen rcputablo
witnesses who testify to tho Innocent
and lawful character of tho Club meet

Mr. Dawes of Massachusetts in his ro

that retrenchment is being carried for
