The Peace Congress,

The intelligent Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia American (Republican) says that Mr. Guthrie's plan is not acceptable, in many respects, to the Republicans in that body or in Congress, as will be disclosed whenever a test vote is reached. The members of the committee on behalf of the Republican party, says the correspondent, are not, strictly speaking, representative men, and hence are more disposed to concession or compromise than their political friends are prepared to sustain. Any recommendation emanating from this Convention, which cannot be carried through Congress, will do more harm than good, and only serve to intensify the feeling between the two sections. Thus far the compromising policy has only produced one practical result — and that is to split the Republicans into two wings, and to develop an antagonism which cannot be easily reconciled.
