THE RECEPTION OF MR. DOUGLAS AT MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA. – It is reported in the newspapers that as Mr. Douglas, with his wife at his side, was ascending the steps of his hotel in Montgomery, Alabama, on his recent visit to that town, several addled eggs were thrown at him from the crowd of loafers assembled around the house, and that the contents of one egg, exploding on the Senator’s hat, were scattered upon his companion. The republican papers are using this incident as an illustration of Southern society and hospitality; but there are ruffians and lunatics everywhere. We have no doubt, assuming the facts to be as stated, that if the offending parties in this case were detected, they would be severely punished. But we are not yet satisfied of the truth of this newspaper report, and we hope the truth may prove this reported outrage to be only the invention of some Bohemian who could find nothing better to do.
