The Douglas and Fitch Row in Congress.
EDITOR BULLETIN: - The disturbance between Douglas and Fitch, in the U. S. Senate, was most natural. Throughout the late Illinois campaign, Senator Douglas was terribly gored by the “Philistines,” appointed to office by the President. Among them was a youthful son of Senator Fitch, who is U. S. District Attorney. This young man published a tremendous [phillipic?] against Douglas, which hurt. Many thought the father looked over that speech. When Douglas denounced all the Buchanan office-holders in Illinois as “incompetent and corrupt,” he personally insulted Senator Fitch.
