It is said that there is to be no

House of Representatives. There is
but one in the present House (from
South Carolina), who was defeated.
A color d man is to contest seat
from North Carolina, however.
There seems to be little disposition
to nominate colored men among the
Southern Republicans. There have
been two Congresses previously of
which there was no . colored mem
ber. It is noted of North Carolina,
which has been heavily carried in
its Legislature against the Demo
