Prentice's opinion of A. H. Stephens.

--The Louisville Journal, which opposed secession from the beginning, and was a thoroughly Union paper throughout the war, has the magnanimity to speak as follows concerning the ex-Vice President of the Confederate States:

‘ "Mr. Stephens is one of nature's noblemen; and from our heart of hearts we believe that every throb of his soul is in favor of the Union, of his country, and of his whole country.

"Mr. Stephens ought to be in the Senate of the United States. Let Congress repeal the test oath and receive into its body again with acclamations the great and good Georgian, one of the noblest Romans of this or any other country. Oh, we do abhor that narrow spirit and that short-sighted policy that keep from the councils of the Republic such a man as Alexander H. Stephens."
