    THE CHEVALIER FORNEY SLACKENING FIRE. – The Chevalier Forney, of the Philadelphia Press, has of late slackened his cannonading for Mr. Douglas very considerably. Some suppose that the Chevalier has returned to his first love, of Concord, New Hampshire; but we suspect that his real object is a political coalition with the black republicans, which will secure him once more the fat office of Clerk of the House of Representatives. Mr. Douglas is travelling on another road, and so he and Forney, as it appears, have parted, at least for a season.
