The list is, therefore, incomplete, but it is long enough to serve as an answer to Senator Jonas, and to enlighten some other persons who hare not perceived the extent to which the leaders of the armies and councils of the Confederacy have secured power in Congress. These men comprise to-day to-day to-day more than one-fifth one-fifth one-fifth (21 per cent.) of the Congress of the Cnited States. Associated with them are others from the States lately in rebellion who were as deeply in sympathy with the Confederacy, but who held no place in it armies or its councils. The following table shows to what an extent the States lately in rebellion are represented in Congress by prominent military or civil officers officers of the Confederacy : OwigrrAtloimt Kro-Ifirgataon.

Total fti 72 In six of these States both Senators are included included in the Second column of this table. It appears, therefore, that more than 75 per cent, of the Senators and Representatives in the Forty -Sixth -Sixth Congress from the Stages lately in rebellion were formerly prominent in the Confederate Confederate Army or in the Confederate Congress. Many of them were members of the conventions conventions which passed the ordinance of secession. Let us see what proportion of tho Democrats in Congress these men reprvwnt : Democratic Senators 42 Of these, ex-Confederates ex-Confederates ex-Confederates ig Democratic Representatives 14 Of these. ex-Confederates ex-Confederates ex-Confederates 55 From this it appears that 3 per cent, of the, Democrats in the Senate are ex-Confederates, ex-Confederates, ex-Confederates, and also 3S per cent, of the Democrats in the House. This is undoubtedly an under-estimato, under-estimato, under-estimato, formation prove that nearly one-half one-half one-half of the House committees have ex -Confederate -Confederate Chairmen. Chairmen. It is plain that the most important committees committees of both houses are under the control of those formerly, identified with the Confederate Confederate Army and Congress. Especially this true of the committees appointed to consider the laws which govern the decision of Congress Congress npon the question of ejection of President. If these men should find themselves supported supported by the election of a Democratic President, President, they will proceed boldly in the course which they have hitherto detured, but feared, to take. The bills printed in Thx Tivxa on the 2fth inst. show what they really desire to da During the recent session they remained quiet, in order that they might not alarm and retel the loyal Democrats of the North. -But -But their intentions were announced By' Representative Representative Blackburn, in the House, when he asserted that they would wipe out all the legislation legislation designed to preserve what was gained by the war.

The Delaware Delaware Republican Convention will be held at Dover on Thursday of next week, Sept. 2, and delegates to it will be elected throughout the State this afternoon and evening. The business business of the convention will not be important ; it will have only to name three candidates for Electors, nnd one for Representative in Congress. Congress. There are no State officers to be chosen this year none, indeed, are elected by the people at any time, except the Governor but the Legislature to be chosen will have the duty of electing a successor to Senator Bayard. There have been, until within a day or two, very unsatisfactory indications as to the harmony harmony and good feeling of the tpproaohing convention, the same factional differences that so disturbed the last convention, (assembled to elect delegates to Chicago,) threatening to prevail prevail with even increased intensitv, but it is now probable that these will lie substantially quieted.
