J. L. Pugh of Alabama, and E. S. Shofter, late members of the rebel Congress, have arrived in Washington. Gov. Parsons, of Alabama, has telegraphed to the President to please suspend all petitions for pardon recommended by him prior to this date. It is not known what prompted this movement, but it is believed to have some connection with the arrival in Washington of large numbers of pardon-seeking Alabamians.
