Tbo rcccut elections in Tennessee and
Kentucky, resulting in the choice of eight
Opposition members of Congress, hare set
tled tie question of the prejiondtrance of
parties iu the next House, The Adminis
tration is in a minority, while the Oposi-
tion Las, if nailed, a good working major
ily, and it is powible that the Kcpublicans
17 themselves will Ira able to control legis
lation. The only hope the Administration
part has, grows out of the possibility that
the Opposition may noted harmoniously;
lut we think this hojte is a very slender
one, for not a Southern man has been elect
ed without lighting with all his might the
whole strength of the Administration, and
men are not apt to forget bitter hostility so
soon as to unite cordially with their foes,
even though in all respects they may not
agree with those who like themselves are
opposed 10 incir enemies, wo liave no
doubt,-arefore, that on all subjects in
which the plans of the present corrupt Ad
ministration can be defeated, the whole
Opposition will be a Quit, and that the dis
graceful schemes of tlio party in jiower will
bo utterly Llusted. For this, let us be
Ed. Anoti: I hare read Grorcr's speech
and your remarks upon it, and I think with
you that it was a great mistake to lose such
a Riant in the councils of the nation. Hut
I was particularly interested in the stirring
appeal In behalf of Democracy. Vbat
strong erring and tears! " If there is not
more harmony, the whole concern will go
to the bow-wows." It Is Just ready to
break into a million flinders. What Dem
ocrat cai resist bis touching, heart-rending
pathos? The effect must Ira great, and I
doubt not we shall even behold the Joyous
millennial spectacle Dclazon shall dwell
with Bush, Xcsmith shall lie down with
TTault, old Lane and Judge Williams and
Dolf Hannah aud Doc Drew together, and
little Jimmy O'Mcara shall lead them.
Won't it Ira funny and pleasant for such
brethren to dwell in unity 1 Ciro.

"A Naturalized Foreigner" writes
pointed and pertinent letter to the Wash'
Ington Star (one of the Administration or
gans) in relation to its defence of the ab
surd doctrine of allegiance set forth by Mr.
Cass nnder the sanction of the government.
The Star's correspondent says :
" Whilo I pcrcftivo yon have succeeded

that you hare answered his argument. J
am probably as much opposed to this gen
tleman and bis party as you can be, but iu
this case I firmly believe him to be iu the
right. If protection is only extended to. a
naturalized citizen while bo is on American
soil, where is the use let me ask you for
him to become naturalized? The laws
would protect him while here if ho bad

derstood that I was to be admitted to a
perfect equality with the native born citi
zens, and I have been very proud of it; but
it appears I have been mistaken. The
Constitution guarantees protection abroad
to the citizen of the United States, and why
docs the Administration seek to depriro us
or our privileges?' jiuru as the know
Nothings were on foreigners, I never yet
knew an instance where they sought to
deny us our rights after naturalization;
