[special Dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.]
Suppression of "Incendiary" documents

Washington Jan. 29.
--Messrs. Dejarnette and Edmondson, of Virginia, hearing that incendiary documents were being circulated through Virginia, by the Clerks of the Census Bureau, by order of John P. Kennedy, Superintendent, called this morning to ascertain if it was so. Kennedy admitted that they had been sent by his order — such of them as were fit; but the clerks were not employed in that work during office hours. Messrs. Dejarnette and Edmondson told him if he sent any to their Districts they would hold him personally responsible, and he promised not to send any.

The speeches sent by Kennedy were chiefly those of Clemens, of Virginia; Millson, of Virginia, and Etheridge, of Tenn.

The National Intelligencer is printing a large extra edition of these speeches for Virginia circulation. Zed.
