Description of Congress.
has no respect for the present Congress.
The last New York Herald
"Ordinary men, they come from their country villages to the seat of government with all the passions, prejudices and narrow views of local politicians.
They are full of the ideas and feelings of the war after it is over and fast becoming a matter of history.
Events, with mighty strides, rush on like railroad cars, and leave them gazing in wonderment behind.--They are bewildered, and flounder about in uncertainty, first one way and then another, not knowing rightly where they are. It is a pity they cannot be sent back to their constituencies to find out the change that has taken place.
A year or so, however, is not long in the life of a nation, and the time will soon come round when they will be taught an impressive lesson.
In the meantime we do not despair of the progress of the country; for President Johnson
has the wisdom, power and firmness to carry us safely through, in spite of the unrepresentative Congress with which he may have to contend.
