killed and three others wounded. About one bun

But in regard to the latter point, the Star thinks
that .they are counting chickens before they are

" All the southern elections taking place since
the a h of March last, however, convey assurance
to men of sense, that they have no ground for any
such expectation. Planck'', and nothing else, is
what these leaders are after. 'The records of Con
gress, from the foundation of the government to the
termination of the last seesaw, show that the Unit
ed States have had no other so jealous guardians of
the treasury as senators and representatives from
the southern sections of'the Union. ' Under these
circumstances, we may safely venture to predict
that,, whenever any persona identified with the
proposed new poliical organization venture byplay
champions of the South in the House-hall or Senate
chamber, they will I , catch a very high fall" in

THE SPEAKLIMIP.—CoI Richardson, of Illinois,

the (to him) all important question. This is a wise
move on his part: inasmuch as it takes very little
iersonal association with him to impress most men
very decidedly in his favor, as a gentleman of gen
uine character and high bearing. Sometime since
we took occasion to discuss his distinctive traits as
a public man, and on this occasion have only to re
