Returns from Kentucky thus far show
that of the anti-Sldvery candidates for
Congress, Yeaman of the lld District,
Rousseau of the Vth, Smith of the Vith,
Randall of the Vlfhb, and McKee of
; i
IX District, five ln aii, are elected ; of
the pro-Slavery candidates, Trimble of
the Ist District, Harding of the lirth,
and Shanklin of the' Vllth, three in all,,
are chosen. In the remaining District,
the Hid, the resalt 'is not yet known.
Later election returns from Tennessee
make it probable that Col. Stokes, the
Union candidate in the Chatavooga Dis
trict, has been defeated by the-Conserv
ative Faulkner; while in the With Dis
trict, Col. Hawkins; the Union candidate,
is said to have beaten . Etheridge by a
handsome majority.: The Union candi
dates have been electedan the Tat, lid,
ITIO, Vl:lth and VIIIth Districts, while
the Hid, IVth and Vtli Districts have
elected Conservatives. According to the
Nashvillei Prese, two of the Union Con
gressmen' elect, I%laynard (Lid -District)
and Hawkins (VlTth District) can be
relied upon as supporters of a liberal
policy; and, also two others, Taylor (Ist
District) and Leftwick (Yin Patriot),
probably. Nothing is said of Cooper

General Belie , .
A good deal has been said tboutfiGen.l
Butlers failure to take Fort Llsh‘r. The
Report of the Committee on t e Gonduet
of the War ' had the matter u i der inves
tigation, and after tatinc , all he testimo
ny, it shows that Gen. Butler e was neither
a coward or military fool on t at occasion.
, There had been, a question lietweal the
fand and naval commanders whether eith
delayed the other , It ziow , appears that
the expedition statted on the 12th and
14th of Decemb9 l ;l that Gen. Butler with
his transports Walt ( Eitr ight, to the,rendez
vons, and :waited 'durtne , ° three days of
fine weather for tdiniralPorter, who had
gone to Beaufort and *as taking in sup
plies for his ficet. .13 1 the time Porter
was ready, a storm ame up, and the
i y
transport fleet was obliged to go to Beau
fort for safety and 000. While the land
force' was thus seventy miles away,Admi
ral Porter, on the 24th of December, be
ean'his attack by exploding the powder
boat, and twelve hOu s later by a bom
bardment. "
As soon as Gen:utler was able to
reach the scene of a tion,he arranged for
the landing of a pprlion of a his troops,
and a recconnoisance of' Fort Fisher by
Gen. Weitzel. JUpOn ;the question ;as to
the advisabilty of an iattack at:that s timb,
General Weitzel gtves the following
strong testimony tt ; '
"After that experience [in assaulting
works . ] with the information I had obtain
ed from readfug and study---for,before the
war I was an instructor at the Military
Academy for three years under Professor
Mahan on, these theses subjecsi; remeth
bering well the remark of the Dientennan
General commanding, that it was his in
tention I should coMmand that expedition
because another op per selected by the
Wdr Department had once shOwn timidi
ty, and in the face!, df . the fact ;that I had
been appointed Major General only twen
ty days before and needed confirmation ;
notwithstanding all that, I wdnt back to
Gen. Butler and t!old him I considered it
would be murder rte order an attack on
that work with thatl ; force." -
And Gen. Weitzpl, upon being asked
whether he is still ;of the same opinion,
replies • "Yes, sic;i!l am fully satisfied
from all I have liedtd since, from the re
sult of the second , attack, and everything
else--I am hilly sdtisficel that I did my
duty there." i';

I The Charlottesville (Virginia
ele says, on the recent election in Rich
mond :
"We can submit to the decisions dare
war; we can relinquish independence;
we can honestly go I back to tqe federal
constitution and the Union,; we can sub
mit to the emancipation of our slayer;
but we cannot change our nature, we
cannot feel delighted , that we have been
whipped ; we cannot cease to love lour
own hills and Valleys . ; wo cannot ibut
sympathize with those who died fighting
-by our side, or who have come out, of the
war mutilated,; and broken in fortune, in
maintaining a common cause. The ',peo
ple of the South, for example, love Gen.
Leo, and if the people of the North do
not love him, neither the stronger not the
weaker party can change such feelings in
the mind of the other party. If a smith
ern man professes to think and feel in
such matters as the northern man thinks
and feels, he is a monster or a hypocrite.
"We can speak the more freely on such
points, because weovere no secessionists,
never believed in secession,and, while we
have many personal friends among them,
always regarded a most mische
violas party. Butjthere are to secession-
ists at the South now. The thing is Olio
lntely relinquished, and the old access
ists are perhaps, More unreserved in their
submission to the Union than tne for Mer
Union men or the South.
"The election in Richmond may have
been illadiised 1 it certainly was in our
opinion) , if f the successful ticket wqs a
secession ticket. Not only was it in that
case, an affront to the federal authorities;
but it was an affront to the people of Vir
ginia. It is no time to be electing seCiess
ionists to office. They have ferfeited
office by conducting a mad and unsucCess
ful revolution. It is 'the custom In such
cases for the defeated party to stand back
and many of them doubtless concui• in
our views. This however, can only be
done through the polls. If the soot ern
people choose to let the eldsecessionipol
iticiars govern them, iafter their !un
fortunate administration of their affairs,
we sees no remedy. The "North will not
suffer materially from it, and -Cannot
take cognizance of the matter, because
they are not secessionists new. They
have abandoned all their,political heresies
and havo submitted to the Union theory
of the government, and have asked to,be
forgiven, and have been forgiven. - If they
are disfranchised, a majority of the south.
ern people are disfranchised. We under

course, that we will not abuse our advan

When be offers to reinstate us in the

that we shall not pervert our power to the
discredit of the federal authority. In
relieving us from the pressure of military
rule he conceives - us to contract an en
gagement not to obstruct the operations
of government nor to unsettle the ;order

mag,animity in the execution of federal
pow•r i l confiscation, proscription; mar-'

will be the portion of the South."
he Charlottesville Chronicle of the
sth ,instant says :
"Ai call , is published elsewhere for a
publio meeting on monday next, the ob
ject of which is to invite-immigration to
thisi State. We cordially approve ,the
, peliley and propriety of such a meeting.
We hope it will be a full and earnest
lone and that it will express to the peo-
Iplefof the North and the people of the
diffsren,t Euprean states that they will
find a welcome in our, midst. The time
has come to inaugurate an entirely new
policy in this respect, and to give
to Virninia and the South the place which
Ithey should occupy in the race for power
lon this continent. This cannot be done
Iwithout population. Every ablebodied
Iman who comes to Virginia•is a contribu
tion of a thousand dollars to the wealth
of the state. When our population is
doubled our lands 01 be doubled in val
ue. We shall have; life and activity iu
the place of stagnation and death. We
shall have railroads canals, ships, steam
boats, factories, cities,in the place of mud
tttrnpikes, boats shaved_with poles, petty
county court house blacksmith shops,
and hand labor genek . ally. We,want mus
cle; we must htoie laborers ; we must
have machinery. Not till then will Vir
ginia cease to be alprovince---a hewer of
wood and a drawer °prefer for our wealthy
northern neighbors: . We trust our influ
ential citizens wfflitake an active part in
this meeting. , It will do as much good
as the resolutions of 1768799."
In an other article it says',:

• The Houston Telegraph says :
"The piney -woods planters in the coati

-The Norfolk Post of the says :
"There a marked difierencdbetween
the political sympathies of the people of
Norfolk and the public sentiment in other
portions of the state and the South. Here
there is a real and undisguised Union
feeling among the majorityfof the people.
Therd are no repinings over the downfall
of the Confederacy, and no, disposition is
manifested, by either the mass of the
people or the leaders of public opinion,to
oppose the march of events, and place
themselves in an antagonistic posistion to
the government. Our citizens - are real
Unionists, as a general thing, and are con
tent to be considered such. Good feeling
pervades all classes, and even our return
Confederate soldiers are as good natur
edo a set of young fellows as we would
wish to meet with; and we feel satisfied
that their profosions of loyalty are sin
cere. They do not stand -sullenly. aloof
from association with their fellow citizens
who were opposed to them during the war
but freely associate with them' in all the
relations of life. They appear, by their
conduct, to be anxious to obliterate every
vestige of the past five years, and to frat
ernise with their old friends, as in days
of yore. This happy result is mainly due
to the healthy state 'of public opinion
which has been, gradually developed by
the'wise system of mutual concession and
forgiveness long since adopted, and the
emstant mingling of our people in busi
ness pursuits, as well as jin the social
walks of life. By meeting, together and
calmly discussing the questions of the day
in a fair and conciliatory Spirit, a good
understandtng has been arrived at, and
we have become almost a unit in feeling."
The Richmond .Republi c says:
"The other day two young men were
talking on a street in a c 4. They were
diving deeply 'into the fundamental prin
ciples. One of them asked 'the other what
loyalty was. Ideas have been so unset
tled about what it really consists in that
an answer did not come very readily to
the respohdent: After some deliberation,
and an anxious, puzzled expression of.
countenance, the other's face suddenly
brightened up. 'Why,' said he, 'l'll tell
you, exactly what it is ; it is ,swearing to
a d—d lie.' Did or did not' this young
matt, in the candid impulse of youth,
speak the popular sentiment, or describe
in a few words the sort of loyalty which
is manifested around us.?"
The Lynchburg Virginian of July 24
says of sentiment in Virginia :
"They acknowledged that they were'
beaten, and claimed only such terms as
were guarantied to these who would lay
down their allegiance to the supreme
government. l l Thoy have accepted, with
singular. unanimity, the Emancipation
Proclamation i; 1 and if there, is alllll7 who
