in Congress, Mr. Botts, undoubtedly, could. We do not see, indeed, how his claims could be overlooked, especially when we see that Tennessee is to be admitted because a son-in-law of the President is a Senator from that State. With regard to talents and statesmanship, we think our contemporary wrong when he says Mr. Botts will be the peer of any man in the Senate. There is no man in the Senate whose abilities are at all comparable to those of Mr. Botts Mr. Botts held his own when there were giants in Congress; when Clay Webster and Calhoun were in the Senate; when Prentiss, Marshall and John Quincy Adams were in the Lower House. In the present Senate he would be like Saul among the prophets. He would be a head and shoulders taller than the tallest of them. Nor do we conceive that we pay Mr. Botts an exaggerated compliment when we say this much of him. A man of abilities much inferior to his would be amply qualified to take the lead in that body, as at present constituted.
multitude of routed, beaten, discomfited men, whose valor has almost atoned for the sins of rebellion!" "Our gallant grey brothers are even now clamoring around Washington," &c. "So with the Generals of the Rebellion. The greatest of them all is now a teacher of mathematics in a university. Sherman's great antagonists are in the express and railroad business. The once-dreaded Beauregard will sell you a ticket from New Orleans to Jackson; and, if you want to send a couple of hams to a friend in Richmond, Joe Johnston, once commander of great armies, will carry them. The man whose works Grant moved upon at Donelson edits an indifferent newspaper in New Orleans, while the Commander of the Rebel cavalry at Corinth is his local reporter. Marshall practices law in New Orleans; Forrest is running a saw-mill; Dick Taylor is now having a good time in New York; Roger A. Pryor is a daily practitioner at our courts; and so with the rest of this bold, vindictive and ambitious race of men."
