Election of Mr. Forney.
The election of Mr. FORNEY as Clerk of the House, is the capstone to the pyramid of popular condemnation pronounced against Mr. Buchanan’s Lecompton Swindle.
Faithful among the faithless, Mr. FORNEY has stood like adamant against the Lecompton fraud, when even Douglas and the whole Western Democracy succumbed.
