Speech of Senator Grimes

It can hardly be necessary to call attention to the speech of Senator Grimes on his resolution tendering the thanks of Congress to Commodore Foote, and the officers and men under his command, which will be found in our columns this morning.  It is a speech already widely published, and one which will be very generally read in all parts of the country  The views expressed are such as will be universally approved as just and wise, while many important facts are brought to light not before known to the general public.
