    SENATOR DOUGLAS. – There are rumors on every side of a determination on the part of sundry partisans of the Administration to force Senator Douglas into personal quarrels immediately on his return to Washington. Senator Slidell, who has already had some personal difficulty with Mr. Douglas, shows, in his recently published card, a feeling of inveterate hostility, rendered all the sharper by the influence of the visit of Mr. D. to New Orleans upon the approaching Senatorial election. Senator Jones, of Iowa, has also taken occasion to publish a very ferocious letter, in which his Illinois colleague is assailed with bitter and offensive personalities. There is an evident attempt to break him down by personal assaults. How it will prosper remains to be seen. – [N. Y. Times]
