They represent their commissarial as in good condition. Several officers of the regiment, who were captured at the same time, speak confidently of their hopes in obtaining their independence.--These prisoners were quite uncommunicative when questioned in regard to the designs of General Early. Remarkable speech of the little Villain — the question to be Decided at the coming Presidential election. At a grand Lincoln ratification meeting in Brooklyn on the evening of the 14th, Henry J. Raymond, of the Times, made a remarkable speech: He expressed his delight at seeing this evening an indication which gave the lie to the hope of their opponents — that there was such an apathy among the Republicans that, with Little Mac, they would run over the course. Their opponents were welcome to indulge in such speculations; but he congratulated the friends of the Union at the display of interest here manifested in the coming Presidential struggle. (Applause.) The question no

ing resume of the opinions and speculations current in Washington city on this subject, but the article was unfortunately omitted. We allude to it now merely as affording us a reason for stating to-day that Senator Doolittle, of Wisconsin; Hon. H. J. Raymond, of New York city, Mr. Seward's right- hand man, and Horace Greeley, all of them great lights of the Republican party, seem to be strongly disposed to sustain the President in his reconstruction policy, and that the Conservatives are flusheorable Thaddeus Stevens is so true to the life that the best friends of that distinguished gentleman cannot be offended at the likeness. "In the House it is gratifying to note that the chains of caucus are slacking, if not breaking. Hon. Henry J. Raymond expressed himself as personally in favor of referring credentials to the Committee om Elections; but that, "out of deference to the views of members, he would move their reference to the Select Committee on the subject of the so-called Co

Public meeting in New York. The New York correspondent of the Philadelphia Ledger writes: "Leading Republican politicians, taking their cue from Washington, are initiating the preliminaries of a public meeting at the Cooper Institute on Monday evening next. Democrats, as well as Administration men, will be invited to participate. Among the speakers will be Hon. Henry J. Raymond and perhaps Hon. James Brooks. This movement will, no doubt, impel the radicals to get up some sort of a counter demonstration."
speech to-day in favor of the general policy of the President. Good Signs. It is a good sign in that the radicals have lost temper. Accordingly, when Mr. Raymond spoke to-day, Schenck, Bingham, and one or two other malignant, violated the courtesies ever extended on the occasion of the first effort of a new member by interruptions every three or four sentences. I was told by two or three Republican correspondents in the gallery that Mr. Raymond's effort was strong; that his interrogators were not able to break the thread of his argument or disturb his temper, though the provocation was excessive, nor catch him in any snare set by the tormentors. tor, he was posted. It was freely said by experienced observers and writers that almost any new member would have sunk under the storm that was let loose upon Raymond. He has, however, as editor, been far more thoroughly posted upon politics in Southern or all aspects than his opponents, and having had a training as a politici
Washington, December 22. --Raymond's friends to-day assert that the attempt on yesterday on the part of the radicals to break him down is a signal for open war. They threaten retaliation. The President is gradually drawing to his policy all persons who have not fixed political principles. Senator Stewart, Colonel Forney and other Republicans of this kind are out for immediate admission. The prospects are, that Van Dyke will eventually be appointed Collector of New York. Raymond backs him up, and he is the President's favorite from the city of New York. Pennsylvania asks Congress for nearly a million dollars to pay the expense of repelling Confederate invasions of that State. An attempt will be made to refer it to a committee. There is no doubt of the fact that the President yesterday nominated to the Senate ex-Congressman L. D. Campbell, of Ohio, to be Minister Extraordinary to the Republic of Mexico, in place of General Logan, declined. The nomination
Raymond vs. Sumner.from the New York Times. If it is imagined by any Congressmen who do not agree with the reconstruction policy of President Johnson that anything is to be gained on their side by hard words against him, they will soon discover their mistake.--He is a man so strongly intrenched in the respect and confidence of the people that all imputations upon him are sure to recoil upon their authors. If Senator Sumner deems it his duty to oppose the reconstruction methods of President Johnson, he has the clear right to do so, and if he would confine himself to fair argument, would be listened to respectfully. But he has damned his cause at the outset in charging misrepresentation upon President Johnson in the message sent to the Senate respecting the condition and feeling of the South. If he had it in his power to show that the President had been misinformed, the country would have been obliged to him for the correction. But when he charges the President with a deli

The President is preparing, or has prepared, a reply to the resolution of Congress asking for information why Jefferson Davis has not been brought to trial. The ground taken will be found to embrace the legal difficulties heretofore announced as in the way of a civil trial, and the probabilities are that Congress will pass a law to meet this and all similar emergencies. Hon. Henry J. Raymond, of New York, for one, will strongly advocate such a measure. Repetition of an old confiscation story. Information has been received of the confiscation, by the provost-marshal at Lexington, Va., of a considerable quantity of valuable hides belonging to the tannery of that place, and in part the property of the widow of Stonewall Jackson.
