Southern members of Congress.
--The Washington Chronicle,
which is supposed to speak the President
's opinions frequently, if not habitually, says in its issue of yesterday: "The members elected from the Southern States
to the Senate and House are having free and friendly intercourse with those who occupy seats in those bodies, and are everywhere treated with marked courtesy.
Generally there is no disposition on either side to show what may be called discontent at delay, or eagerness to protract their exclusion.
The impression prevails that they will be admitted before the close of the present session.
This will certainly be so if they continue to march up to the fair and logical requirements of the President
and of the anti-slavery majority of both breaches of Congress."
