Fort Pillow.

It is all too true. The frightful and ghastly calamity that befel our black troops at Fort Pillow is confirmed to its smallest and most devilish detail.

The Committee of Congress appointed to investigate the facts have reported, and, after a careful and patient and impartial investigation, they are of the opinion that the newspaper reports have not exaggerated the affair at all. Indeed, they are of the opinion that it could not be exaggerated.

Lo, therefore, the Fort Pillow infamy of the rebels is before the country and the Government in all its naked enormity and deformity. We shall await, and the people will await, with deep feeling and resolute expectation the action of Congress and the determination of the Government. Fort Pillow must be avenged.
