We print in onr •opp'efflent to-day the 
two m-.«v iisportaat ape«ebes of the jes- 
::cn. tiose mj-i'; by Messrs Doolittle 
aal Ftssenden in the Senate on the 12th 
nst , in r*l!»t:on to the Stevens resolu- 
* ir for thf appointment of the concnr- 
rert committee to whom ista be referred 
the whole question of tbe admission 
of meiub«rs from the lately rebel states — 
or what from the comprehensive nature 
cf irs dnticj << .aUsd tbi^ Reconstructioo 
•>mmittoe The inrtporiancc of the 
'•uvstioa intclved in tbe appointment of 
tbe Committee is indicated in the exagge- 
rated complaint of Doolittle. that the 
■!rap!e oassag" o? tbe resolitica — "di's- 
§olved tb? I pion by act of Con-

based upon tbe abiurd dogma of 
tbti indetractible autonomy of States 
for the infallibility of which ho seems to 
'tonsider it sufficient to cite the authority 
rjf tha Fresidsnt. Mr. Fessenden's 
speech, while marked by a statesmanlike 
mi rinticai avoidance of anv opinion 
upoD tbe question of recanstructioc. 
which, as be shows, is not at all relevant 
to the subject, of the resolution, 
is chiefly remarkable for its assertion of 
•he power of Congre*;, as a co-ordinate 
branct of the Government, to revise the 
whole line of policy adopted by the Prea- 
ident ; aad Im remarks upon tbis bead, 
areia no less happy contrast to the toady-

ibip of the Wisconsin Senator 



forces for the rehabflitati&O of ilie South, 
instead of upon the free, volu'itar)- ard 
unrestricted action of the Sout'iem peo- 
ple tbemselve.s. Vor what is uaated at 
the South is not simply political reorgan- 
ization, but social regeneration not sim- 
ply statutory changes — (or these are 
worihlese unless they arc the roluntary 
eaprossion ol the popular will— but a rad- 
ical aad organic re-grOwth of ihe whole 
social and political life of the So itb. Re 
construction, in this sense, cinnot be 
artiJcially superposed by an external 
power ; it must come from v ithin ■ it 
must bo wrought out by the spcntaneous 
political activity of the Southern people 
themselves, in a larger intelligence — a 
more enlightened public conscience — a 
broader hununity and higher popular 
sentie of justice -things that nrc not made, 
but t;row with the moral statun- of com- 
munities and grflit slowly. 

As well send a carpenter to rebuild a 
lightning blasted tree and an upholsterer 
to reclothc it in its gorgeons diapcry of 
summer bloom, as to expect Ci ngressto 
fabricate » loyal, humane, liberal, just 
and dcnntratic South from the wreck of 
the rebellious and anti natio:ial stave 
Olicwcbv which yet nurse* the :mbcrs of 
its sectional hatred under the ai bus oi itii 
desolation. Six months ago a {jand op- 
portunity prescntad itself to the President 
to settle the whole question <>f recon* 
etructiou in two words— Unive 'sal Am- 
nesty and Impartial SuflFragc- to make 
the black loyalist? of tbe South the guar- 
dians ol their owa rights by an eqaal 
participation in the work of reconstruc- 
tion. That opportunity was los . and the 
political society of the South vas reor- 
ganised ocjtha traditional basis of .CaHe 
— tbe political subjection of th.i colorod 
I race being substituted for tbe oil relation 
of persor.al slavery. 

We may deplore this reslorai ion of ex- 
clusive poli'ical privileges to thi whit is, 
at ot:cf tile oppressors of the ]iro3cribed 
race and the enemies of *h9 Government, 
but we arc unfortunately estOi>ped from 
complaining by the fact that tbe loyal 
North has itself set tbo example of an 
almost universal exclusicn of iss colored 
citizens from the ballot box 

We say the opportunity for bis sum- 
mary act of justice wai lost, for the White 
South no longer cccupies sue h an atti- 
tude of hottility as justifies tb* exercise 
of the imperial rights of the » ocqueror. 
Tbe Southern States have bee i reorgan- 
iied on th'' old basis • they ha-'e elected 
Goveroofs, l-esjislatirres. coanty and 
town officers, and finally Scr iters and 
Representatives of the United !^ tates, and 
with the full consent and undtr the au- 
thority of the Executive branch 8f the 
United States they have resumed nearly 
all tbe powers of local governinent. In 
tbe meantime they have at lea it nomin- 
ally abolished slavery by Stat : act, and 
all bat one have ratitied tbe a nendmeot 
to tbe National Constitution ]«rohibiting 
slavery. But all their legislation tends 
to the practical iS -enslavement of tbo

Union, and the surrender of the freed- 
men to tbe tender mercies of their former 
masttrs — seem to us to occupy tbe true 
ground on tbis question.' 

The former follow only th^ vindictive 
logic of the rigbti of conquest . the lat- 
ter only the equally logical, but no less 
cruel sequescd of tbe absurd doctrine of 
tlie indeatructibility of the States. One 
class demands the sacrifice of eight mil- 
lions of whites to a dogma which makea 
Power— Right. Tbe other requires tbe 
sacrifice of four million black victims to 
an empty metaphysical abstraction which 
IB practically denied by those who urge 
It, and which is never invoked except to 
justify oppression. 

One extreme shocks the generous spirit 
of national clemency and the popular 
vearnlng for a thorough obhvion of past 
offences, while tbe otker extreme alarms 
the popular sense of justice, and touches 
the quick instinct of national honor. 

Tbe true line of policy, w' ich recon- 
ciles magnamimity to the whites with 
justice to the blacks, lies betwi^n these 
opposite extremes of partiz.iU.hp. Tbe 
Souiem States are, in fact, ci ,iere<l 
provinces, and as such are, b} l - laws 
of war, subject to the disposmou and 
control of the conquering powe , but on 
the other band the despotic relation of 
conqueror and conquered, of unlimited 
power on the one side and helpless and 
passive subjection on tbe other, does not 
belong to the category of American ideas, 
is repugnant to the genius of our Consti- 
tution, and cannot be maintained except 
in a state d war or of public peril, with- 
out a complete subversion oi tbe princi- 
ples on wbtcb rests the whole structure of 
our government. 

Tbe rights <'A conquest are the ple» of 
tyrants the world over, and for an Amer- 
ican Congress to assert tbe rights of con- 
quest over the Southern people in a state 
cf peace — to substitute a government of 
force for a government of opinion — is to 
convert our Kepubhcan system — which is 
sinplv the organization of liberty — into 
an engine of despotism ; and after all 
that the nation has sacrificed and suffered 
to maintjiin tbe pnnciple of self-govern- 
ment, to declare it a failure. 

Tbe fundamental idea of our Bepublt- 
can system — tbe Democratic idea- 
is faith in moral fotrces ; faith, not 
only in man's capacity for self govern- 
munt, but in the education and regulatrve 
efiect of the processes of solf-gsvernment 
in tbe development of coiamaaities to 
the full sUndard of their political duties

AdJ U U< litatd to ui tUt ID7 ij^i- 



openly disloyal, to seaU in thttbody. 

To do this 13 at once to take from the 
Government all power to proUct the 
black loyalists of f'-e South fr jm oppres- 
sive legislation, and to surrender them, in 
violation of the pledged faith of the na- 
tion, to the vengeance of tbeir fr»rmer 

masterf. 

We need not say that no t ich stupen- 
dous act of perfidy, of ingratitude, of na- 
tional dishonor is possible to a Congress 
of the United State? where t le Republi- 
can party wield the irresistibip power of 
a two-thirds majority. 

No, it cannot be done. These ucwly- 
flcdgedJSoutbern States must wait awhile. 
Not till equality of civil rights is secured 
to every citizen ol the eouti em States, 
white or black, by irreversiale guaran- 
tees, will the Nation surrend tr tbe help- 
less freedman to the tender mercies of 
Southern State legislation And who 
has the right to complain ' Not surely 
the white people of tbeSoutI , for already 
there have been grantet to them 
fall powers of local self government. 
They are in the full enjoy menl of ex- 
clusive political privileges, and all tbeir 
rights of person and property, though 
forfeited by rebellion, have b :en promptly 
restored to them by the mtgnanimi'y ol 
tbe nation , and secured by 1 iws and con- 
stitutions of tbeir own itiaklng. We 
would not abate a jot or tittle of their 
political powers, or impair an iota of 
tbeir rights, to fur as their own race is 
concerned. 

But the negro race has mt .inch .protec- 
tion. Excluded from the p;»le of South- 
ern political society, tbey n 'R reeognizefl 
by the dominant race only vl- outcasts and 
enemies. For them the ij<>ath provides 
no goveruiueat and no iawt,. And since 
the South — the white South — rcfases them 
protection, the nation must take them nn- 
der the broad «gis of the Constitution, 
Fret d by the nation's act, tl ey are the na- 
tiou> wards. Already the RepubUc, by 
an irrevocable decree, has placed the phys- 
ical liberty of the citizen under the safe 
protection of the supreme national law, 
and granted to Congr«88 th* ' right to en- 
fer** that protection by ap; iropriate l«»t?i«- 
latiou. 

But this is far from bein^ a sufficient 
bulwark against caste legi Jatioo It is 
not sufiScienj to secure evei personal lib-

Both branches of tbe legislature of

6th inst.. by tbe election ot Cieorge 
Stickney, of Union county, as President 
of the Council, and G. B. Bigelow, ol 
Clay, as Speaker of the House of Rep- 
resentatives. The oath was administer- 
ed to the members of tbe House by tbe 
Hon. J. P. Kidder. The message of 
Gov. Edmunds was delivered. It is a 
well written document, very much in the 
style of the messages of our old Terri- 
torial Governors, setting forth the nu- 
merous events and varied interests of 
the p?ople, and tickUng tbeir anticipa- 
tions of the future destiny ol tbe State. 
In tbe evening, tbe Dakotian informs us, 
there was a ladies' festival at the Capitol, 
for the purpose of raising funds to erect 
a school bouse, at which the "boys," 
among whom were General Todd and 
Judge Kidder, "tripped the bgbt fantas- 
tic toe'" well into the morning hours, and 
all seemed to enjoy the occasion. 



EDl'CATIU^VAI. BlJaEAV. 

The following is the preamble and res- 
olution introduced by Mr. Donnelly of 
this State, of which a brief notice has 
heretofore been given : 

}V\«r*at, Republican institutions can find 
permanent safety only upon the basis of tbe 
universal Intelligence of the people; and 

IVhereat, The great disasters wbich have 
afflicted the nation and desolated one-half of 
Its territory, are traceable, in a great degree, 
to the ab«encc of common schooU and gene- 
ral education among ihe people of the lately 
rebellious States i therefore 

Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Re- 
constoKtion be instructed to inquire into the 
expedltnoy of esublisbing in this capital, a 
national bureau of education, whose duty it 
shall t>« to enforce education without regard 
to race or color, upon the population ot all 
such SUtGS as shall fall belunr a RUndard to 
to b« esublished by Congress, and to inquire 
whether such a bureau should not be made 
an essential and pennament part of any sys- 
tem of reconstruction.

Nf-w York, Dec. 22. 

The irorM* Washlcgfon special says the 
President yesterday sent to the Senate tbs 
name of Gen. Van Altenburg, of N. Y., as 
Minister to Ji>pan. 

The aggregate force recently ordered to be 
mustertd ort ef the military service is 30,000 
man. 

Gen. Fitz Henry Warrefl has l>een breveted 
Major General. He will not go to OauUma- 
la. If at all, until after the close of the Iowa 
legislature, before which he is a prominent 
candidate for U. S. Senator. 

A delegation of Mississippians, being tbe 
committee appointed by the legislature of the 
State to petition the President for the pardon 
of .Teff. Davis, called at the Executive mansion 
yesterday, and tbe petition was prcentcd, but 
no formal reply was given by the President. 

In tbe recent report of Lieut. Ocn Grant, to 
President Johnson, giving his views ot the 
feeling of the Southern people, he spoke of 
the Freedmen's Bureau as an absolute neces- 
sity until civil law is established and enforced 
securing to freedmen their rights and full 
protection, and said in this connection, "At 
present, however, it is independent of tbe mll- 
litary establishment of the country, and seems 
to be operated by tbe different agent* of the 
Burean accordfiig to their individual no- 
tions." 

Gen. Howanl, Commissioner of Freedmen's 
Affairs, in view of this remark of Gen. Grant 
to-dav i^'sued an order calling attention of the 
At.<<istant Commissioners to that leport, and 
saying that the most thorough iiL-ipectiou will 
at once be made, and tbe evils complained ot 
corrected. 

An order from the War Department makes 
the Bureau independent of the military es- 
tablishment, and any agent or officer who 
presumes to act contrary to such instructions, 
will be forthwith reported to the Department 
commander, tor trial by court martial 
and in all matters of a military character they 
arc under the, direction of the department 
commander, in the same manner as an officer 
ot eagineers building a fort in the same de- 
partment, who reports directly to the chief 
engineer. Every assistant commissioner will 
constantly seek cooperation with the depart- 
ment commander, and must keep him fur- 
nished with all information in bis possession. 
His tormal approval must bt secured when 
possible to all orders and circulars issued by 
th<' assistant commissioners. 

It Is stated that Gen. Van Valkentnirg, of 
New York, has been appointed Minister to 

J'lP'n. 

In the United States Supremo Court today, 
pendiisg the ejwe ex parit of A. H. Garland, 
of Arkansas, asking to be allowed to practice 
as a counsellor, Hon. Reverdy Johnson de- 
livered an argument againit tbe constituUon- 
alitV of the Congressional test oath. There 
l)eing no antecedent government to our own, 
it is necessary to look into the constitution 
itself to see what powers were originally con- 
ferred upon Congress. These being stated. 
Congress is authorized to pass all necessary 
and proper laws to carry them into effect. 

These powers are to be so construed as to 
effect the object they are designed to accom- 
plish. Tt is the duty ot the Court to ascer- 
tain what this is. and then determine whether 
the legislation will defeat or secure the ends. 
A restriction to this class of powers is, that 
Congress shall pass no ex post facto law or 
bills'of attainder. „ ^ . 

The meaning of this is well understood to 
be th*t any 'aw which makes an act a crime 
which was not a crime when the act was com- 
mitted ; but the law of 1365 does punish, in 
point of fact, because It precludes the peti- 
tioner from the exercise of a lawful occupa- 
tion, and strikes at a profession in which his 
hopes and ambition, and support of himself 
and family are involvad. 

The punishment is severe, cruel and unex- 
ampled. It subjects him to all the objections 
of the Constitution, while it takes from him 
all its advantages. 

The original act of 186': was not made ap- 
plicable to attorneys in the courts of the U. S. 
Three years were suffered to elapse, when 
some one in Congress who may have been par- 
ticnlarlv senMtive and who saw danger in 
every view, who bad taken part in the rebel- 
lion, introduced a bill applying tbe provisions 
of the law to practicing attorneys. 

The bill was submitted to the Judiciary 
Committee of the tjenate, and br a unanimous 
▼ote was rejected. It afterwards, however, 
received the sanction of tbe Senate. It was 
passed for the purpose of excluding the peti- 
tioner and all others similarly situated; to 
fnuish them by excluding them from United 
Utes courts. It was not for conduct subse- 
quent but antecedent to the passage of the 

This act comes within the clear meaning of 
the clause In the Constitution that Congress 
shall pass no 't pott fatto law or bill of at- 
tainder. ,. , , 

Nc rights can be taken awav by law unless 
the accused shall be first convicted of the of- 
fence charged, and these riphts include hold 
ing offices of emolument and trust. 

Such laws as that of 186.5 were penal stat- 
utes. The Attorney General bad argued last 
Friday, that the admission to practice in the 
courts is not a natural right, but is created bv 
law, and therefore may be regulated by law, 
and either given or taken away, but It is not 
true that Congress can by law prohibit tha 
appearance of counsellors in tbe courts of the 
United States 



WAaMiNoioK.Dec. II, I8G5. 

HOUSE.— Mr. Hubbard of ConnecUcut ot- 
tered a resolution that tbo Government of the 
United States ought not to recosfiiie any oth- 
er gorcrnment imposed upon any nation on 
this coatinent by arms of any European pow- 
er, wbich was referred to the Committee on 
Foreign Affairs. 

Mr. Tot bees of Indiana, offered a resolu- 
tion endoraing the President's annual message 
aad pledging the support of tbe House to tbe 
principl^M);nuncia!ed. On hiv motion it was 
posironSL 

Mr. >4ttick of Indiana, cfTercda resolution 
wbich mis passed, directing inquiry to be 
made into tbe expediency of admitting a dele- 
gate to Congress to represent tbo District of 
Colnmbte Numerous resolutions of inquiry 
were passed. 

Tbe House went into Committee of the 
Whole on the President's message. 

Mr. Fink of Ohio, made a speech contro- 
verting the positing of Mr. ."-Stevens, and deny- 
ing that tbelSoutbern States were ever out of 
tbe Union, and urging the admission of Rep- 
resentatives from that section so a<* to secure 
a restoration ot friendly and political rela- 
tions heretofore existing. 

Mr. Raymond of New York, was glad to 
see the indiLationson the opposition side of 
the Uoase to support the Union. If these in- 
dicatlcns had been exhibited during the war 
we should have been spared the lives of thou- 
sands of men and tbe expenditure of rivers 
of blood and treasure. Mr. Raymond said 
that tbe ordinances of secession were simply 
the declaration of a purpose and a determina- 
tion to succeed, whether practical effect 
could be given to the purpose depended on 
their ability in the field. The effect was not 
a success l)ut a failure. Who did not wish 
that tbe day might speedily come when we 
shall tiave a great Republic, one and insepa- 
rable, stronger than it has ever been before. 
He controverted at length the position of Mr. 
Stevens of Pennsylvania, denying that the 
States lately in rebellion were ever out of the 
Union. The House, by adopting such theo- 
ries as those ol Mr. Stevens, mainly acknowl- 
edged that wo had waged a war against the 
South as a separate nation. 

At the conclusion of Mr. Raymond's speech 
Mr. Jenks of Rboda Island, i>aid he did not 
wish to be coniaromised by any speech here 
when no qucsiiou waa presented tor their con- 
sidrration- 

pThe coantoittee then rose when the resolu- 
tions referring the various branches ot the 
President's message was passed. The House 
then adjourned. .

WHY 

SHOULD 

YOU 

Insure Tour Life? 



Because, first: It is no more jour moral 
duty to provide the dally bread for your faiully 
while yau live than it Is to provide against tbeir 
t)«lng left penniless In the event of year death. 
If you are not rich it is all tbe mora your duty to 
lay aside a small amount each year in life in- 
surance ; aad If you arq rich, yon certainly haoo 
no eaeutefor net providing lehile you may, for 
those depesdeat upon 70U, by obtaining a fully 
paid up Policy on yoar lifo, your riches may take 
wings and then you will rt^gret not having made 
this investment. 

Because, seooBd : Ibc Mutaul Life Insurance 
Compauy of New '^ itr'^tba oldest, safest and 
l>e8t company in ^bet-'nited States, with Thirteen 
UlUion Five Hundred Tbousaud Dollars cash 
assets, offers you greater induceme}it8 for in- 
soring your life than any oiber company in this 
oovBtry can possibly do. 

Call, therefore, upon tUo agcut, who will 
cheerfully give you any inforieatioii yon may 
desire In regsrd to Life Insurance.

Wash^qtos, Dec. 22. 

The World's special says no offlcial Infer- 
niatioB has been received from the French 
government that the Emperor intends to 
withdraw the French from Mexico; yet It is 
vkgu^lv Riven out by the French luinister in 
dlplomiiatic circles that .such is his Intentioo. 
MaxlmiUian expects to supply tbeir places 
vlth Aastr:an troops, nombers of whom are 
tald to b« on their way to Mexloo 



The ronstitution provides that parties charg- 
ed with crime shall have the beneAt of coun- 
sel, and therefore Congress has to jorisdic- 
tion over that subject. 

It Is true that every court Is vested by the 
common law with power to make regulations 
to exclude improper offliers, bat Congress 
has no right to say who shall not appear as 
connsel. 

The obligation ithich is imposed on Con- 
gress to create conrts carries with It an obli- 
gation on the part of the Qonrts to admit 
counsel. 

The safety of the citi/,en depends on the ex- 
istence of the provision lor the admission of 
counsel. The pre-ervat.on ol liberty demands, 
as llln«irated by the history of the world, that 
there should tic such a body of men in all rev- 
olutionary struggles and despotisms which 
have disgraced tbe world.

Detroit, Dec. 22. 
The formal reception, to-day, of the Iwttle 
flags of Massachusetts, was the ocra«lon of a 
very intcrestin.': and impo-<ing militarv dis- 
play. There were about 3,000 veteran oMkers 
and men in tbe marching column, repre^ent- 
iog sixty regiments, and displaying some 250 
battle-torn flags. All along the route of the 
procession, these veterans and their l)anner8 
were greeted in the most enthusiastic man- 
ner. On reaching tbe State House, the color 
bearers advanced In front, forming on the 
steps of the Cap{iol, while the regiments filed 
Jnto tbe grounds on either side. The whole 
space waa tilled up, and with the crowd out- 
side tormed one of the roost striking scenes 
ever t^ehald In tbis city.

the banners, and tbe cheers having subsided,

• Your colleague. Judge Collamer, is 
dead." was the startling telegraphic mes- 
sage I received at my he me about hve 
wclks ago. He axpired at his resideiice 
in Woodstock. Vermont, .» the evening 
of the inh of Xovembc; past, after a 
brief illness of a Ittt e morti than a single 
week, at bis own house, it Iho midst ol 
his own aliectiouate and devoted house- 
hold, iu the full exercise o his faculties, 
with an abiding and unshal en faith in the 
Christian religion, am] in the cheri.shcd 
hope of a blissful immorta ity. 

By this disp«i5sation, s» sudden and 
so sad, the Senate of the L'nited States 
has lost one of its oldest, i lost experien- 
ced and most trusted of its members ; 
the country one ol the ablat and purest 
of its statesmen ; society and the church 
of which he was a mcmbi r one of the 
worthiest and brightest examples, my 
own State her mostemimnt citizen and 
this day there ii» moumirf: 'brongbont 
all her borders. 

MR. HARRIS 01 NK1 ■ YOnK. 

It is not for Vermont a one to mourn. 
>'ew York claims the priv lege of stand- 
ing by her side in the hour of affliction ; 
of bending with her in ;riel over the 
grave of her illustrious sen. He was a 
son of Vermont bv adoption, of New 
York by birth. The elt vated position 
be so long occupied : the c xt'.n.-<ivc influ- 
ence he »o long wielded ; the honor 
awarded him by cII, ma.\ justly aalisfy 
the pride both otbis nativ • and .ndopted 
states. A man of singuar worth .tnd 
rare virtues has btcii lost to us both. As 
Senators, we rea>' well unite in paying 
oar tribute of respect to be memory ol 
one so justly honored. VVc may well 
paasc in our deliberations to bestow our 
homage upon one so justl} beloved. The 
Senate has indeed lost cm of its abU.-'t 
statesmen, one of its pure; t patriots In 
honoring such a man we h )nor ourselves. 
When wc met in this chamber a hw days 
ago, I am sure the thought was picsent 
to every mind tiat ore tl our cumber 
was not here ; that one icat had been 
made vacant ; that the oldest and most 
I CAperieneed, peihaps th. wisest of onr 
I body, was gone. It is i?rd tor ;is to 
believe that ibc venerable form to (.lunl- 
iar to '1* here, wdl no 1 Jngtr stand m 
our midst ; that bo who v» is to lately the 
obiect ol our revereiice, bia already uten 
eirried away by death that wo shall 
never aga-n 'listen to words o' wicdotn 
and patriotism from his lips

great distinctness, not to say abruptness 
and e.xtrom3 tenacity of opinion and ptir- 
pcse, and a somewhat proportionate dis- 
regard for the opinions ot others when 
ditleriog from him, he was not apt to 
gather around him the attaetment of a 
party devoted to lim. or to interest 
largo numbers of men in his iiidividual 
success. Notwithstanding this, few 
among the members of the Senate have 
been more successful in contracting and 
retaining the coniidence and regard of 
the people among whom they live. He 
inspired with profound respect for him 
those whose good fortune it was to asso- 
ciate with him. He wa^ the possessor of 
qualities which could not fail to attract 
the attention ol people disposed to esti- ', 
mate men at their true value. 

Mr. Fessenden dwelt at length open j 
the character of the deceased as a lawyer | 
and legislator, and passed a high culogi ' 
um upon him in both capacities.

wat more pUunly told. Dr. H'}dgB, the 
beloved pastor of the Presbyterian dinrch, 
i than whom there was no brighter chris- 
tian or nobler patriot within the limits of 
Richmond, had, a the conclusion ol his 
sermon, given out a beautiful hymn to be 
sung by bis congregation. Before ttey 
raised their voices, ho told them, with his 
own voice broken with emotion, that he 
had sad news to eommuricate ; that oui 
armv bad mot with a reverse ; that, wba^ 
ever might be the nature and extent of 
it, there could be no more appropriate 
place (or the reception of evil tidings (ban 
the one whore they were then assembled . 
that there, iu the bouse of God, it became 
them tj seek that tranquility ab(l>compo- 
sure which could fit them for the events 
of His Providence ; and that if anv thing 
obould prevent their meeting there again, 
ho commended them to the love and care 
of Him who had sustained tbcm in all past 
trials 

"Then followed a few parurg counsels, 
of such tenderness and pathos, that there 
was not a dry eye among ail those dis- 
mayed faces which hung upon his words."

quently, Mr. President, wc have been 
called to honor the Senate's dead ; to pay 
the homage which friendship is ever 
prompt to offer to those who have been 
our associates m ihe National council. 
This is the sixth occasio i since I became 
a member of tbis body .'hen the Senate 
has paused tc render its public tribute to 
the memory of its dead. The eloquence 
of Douglas and Biker is no longer heard 
in these halls ; Biogb.iin and Thompson 
and Hicks no longer ippear in their 
wuntcd place". Thus o le after another 
familiar face disappear^, and the great 
and the good pass froui among us. But 
ol tbem all. the loss of i one will be more 
deeply felt than that d him to wh'-se

"Peat Condensing I*Iachlnc.*' 

Dr. R. T. Trail, of the 'Western Hy- 
gean Hotne," writes a letter from New 
York to tb*i Minneapolis Atlas, about a 
new macbioe that has bceu irver<ted for 
redacicg peat to a proper form and sol- 
idity. Dr. Trail says : 

Mr. M. S. Roberts, of Niagara coun- 
ty, N. Y., his perfcctcfi a machine 
which seems to accomplish all that can be 
expected or desired. I have seen and 
tested the fuel prepared by this machine. 
It is almost as smooth and compact as the 
best anthracite coal, and much cleaner 
to handle ; and in burning it evolves less 
smoke, dirt, or gas, and makes less ashes 
tLao coal. Indeed, it makes the most 
pleasant fire of any material I am ac- 
quainted with, not excepting hickory 
wood. 

Mr. Roberts is cow in this city per- 
fecting his models preparatory to manu- 
facturing the machines on a large scale. 
Tney will cost only $2,600 each, includ- 
ing the engine of twenty horeo powe , 
and can be worked by ^threc persons ; 
whereas the Boston machine, referred to 
in an article not long ago published in 
the St. Panl Prfss, costs $10,000 and 
requires 10 to 1? men to manage it. An- 
other peculiarity, and a very great ad- 
vantage in the invention ol Mr. Roberts 
is that instead of having the peat brought 
to the machine, the machine goea to the 
peat. 

Dr. Trail suggests that a company be 
formed at the Falls to purchase and ope- 
rate the ma -hine, and appends the follow- 
ing description of it, from the Buffalo /!.r- 

;)rt.ss of Nov. 11th: 

The principal leatures of the mochiiie, 
are a revolving ^levator aud a oonduc- 
tcr. The lie valor is 75 feet long, ai.d 
runs from the top of the machine to the 
ground, where the peat is dug up, placed 
on the -levator, carried to the top ol the 
niacbirc, aiul dropped into a revolving 
wheel that cuts it up, separates it from 
all the coarst particles, bits of sticks, 
stones, &c., and throws them to one side. 
The peat is ne3a.droppcd into a box be- 
low, where watw is passed in sufficiently 
to bring it to the consistency of mortar. 
By means ol a slide under tho control of 
the engineer, it is next sent to the rear 
of the machine, where the convey cr, 100 
feet lorg, takes it and carries it to within 
two rods of the end, at which point the 
peat begins to drop through to the 
ground, to the depth of four or five 
inches. 

When sntUcieat has passed through to 
cover tb« ground to Iho end of the con- 
v.;yor — two rods — the convenor" is (hen 
swung around, a'ooui two fest, and the 
B ime process gonu through, as list as tho 
ground under the elevator, for the die- 
tama of two rods in length and two feet 
in width ••getting covered, the elevator 
being moved. At eac'u swing of the ele- 
vator the peat just fpread is 'jut into 
block?, (soft ones, however,) by knives 
attaofat'd to the elevator It generally 
takes froni three to loui weeks bt lore it 
i.« ready for use It ken to lie a w«>tk be- 
fore it is touched, aiter the knives pa^s 
through it, when it is turned nv^ran'* al- 
lowed to lie another wt;ck, '' . 

it has then to >>e taken up and put in a 
shed, and within a woek or ten ilayt can 
be used, although ii is br-tter tc let it re- 
main a little longer Tlw machiiie can 
spread the peat over eighteen ttiuare 
rods of ground — taking out one tquare 
rod of pe.at without btiog moved. After 
the eighteen rods are c'o.ered the ma- 
chine is movi-d two rod;; ahead, enabling 
it again to spread a 'e mi circular space 
of some 32 f^-et in width. The same pro- 
cess which drives the engine moves the 
machine. It is estimated by Mr. Roberts 
thit by the use ol this inachine, from «<> 
to 50 tors ol p^at can fn" turned out a day, 
according to the head of s'eim or?, and 
tha' it call be uiaile ready for use ot $1 
p ! ton. which is ao cheap, if not ihtap- 
tr, tbtr. coal can be- got r>ut ol the 
ground "

cl the latter of whom he was the uncle, \ Sunday mornin.', ol the three dijs' ligbt- 

the I ing f^^ ^^'^ taken place around Peters 
burg, and at a distance ol only a lew 
' hours* ride from the capital. For months 
\ p.a8t the government had been reiicent on 
to all military news whjtever ; the newspa- 
, pers had been warned not to puOTsh any 
' military. matters, but wba' shoull be di •- 
the I tated to them from the War Depbitnient, 
and the public was left to imiginc \>n t y 
much what it pleased conctrning the 
progress of the war. Indeed, the idea 
carrent in tho streets on this tiunday 
morning was rather pleasant and reassur- 
ing than otherwise ; iur there was a gen- 
eral impression that Johnston was mov- 
ing to Lee's lines, and that the combined 
force was to take the ofTensivo against 
the enemy." 

The circumstance of 
dispatch being handed 
church, is thus stated : 

"While President Davis was seated in 
his pew in St. Paul's Church, the services 
were interrupted by a niegi^cnger handing 
him a dispatch. It wao from General 
Lee ; it stated that Lis lines had been 
broken in three places, .ind that prepa- 
rations should bo msdc to evacuate 
Richmond by eight o'clock the ensuing 
night, in the event that he should be una- 
ble to re establish bis lines. The Presi- 
dent left the church with a measured, but 
nervous step. It was the constrained 
calmness ot despair. No one but him- 
self knew the exact contcnta ol the dis- 
patch ; but an uneasy whisper ran through 
the congregation, and, as they were has- 
tily dismissed, the rumor was caught up 
in tbp stseets that Richmond was to be 
evacuated, «nd wa? soon carried to the 
ends of the city. 

"In another of the churches, the news 



Broken National Banks. 

CuiTeep:iidcnce Cine nnali Gazetie. . 

Washing roN, Doc. 13,— "Govenior"(Perry, 
uf South Carolina, telegraphed Postmaster 
General Dennison to-day, saying, " We have 
a report here in tho Charleston Couritr, that 
quite a number of the National Banks have 
broken. We have no other currency here. 
What shall we do about it ? ' 

General Dennison sent the dispatch to the 
Unicd t^tates Treasurer, asking what answer 
be should give 

"Tell governor Perry," responded the 
Treasurer, who alway lyays a thing vigorously 
when he says It at all. " that the notes ot a 
broken Uniied States h«iik are a d— d sight 
better aud more v.iluahle thnn those ot a 
solvent one!" 

The ftatcmcnt was paradixical, raiher than 
pious; but it was nevertheless true; though 
itmav 6ccm so strange to many Northern men 
as it must to Gov. Perry. Whoever remem- 
bers that there are locked up in the great 
vaults of tho Treasury here, Government 
bonds for every dollar of National Dank cir- 
culation, and that, whenever a bank fails, the 
Treasury is bound to sell these bonds to re- 
deem its notes, wiil appreciate the cart state- 
ment that the issues of a broken bank are 
of more value than those of a solvent one. 

Thus the National Lank of Altica liiled, 
six months ago; but to this dny only seven 
of Its notes have been presented for redemp- 
tion ' Practically Its whole circulation is oat- 
standing — the notes of the broken bank circa- 
latiDg us well, and being as good as those of 
any other. Whoever holds one of those bro- 
ken notes holds, not the pledge to pay of the 
Bank of Attica, but of the Government of the 
United .States. Till i t fails, the cotes are 
good.

amendment proposed ly tbe Senator 
Trom Rhode Island. \9 (b tt the resolution 

< in its terms reaches t^vin beyond tbe 
present Congress. Sir, have you care- 

, fully studied this Ungufl{e, which would 
seem almost to have been employed for 
the purpose of rather disguising its hidden 
meaning than of giving fi ill utterance to 

I the irutn ? The resolalii n provides that, 
in case this committee sbtU for any rca- 
, aon make no report, or i! for any reason 
I Congress, which include! both Houses, 
shall not take '!nal acticn thereon, the 
restrictive clause goes into effect as a 
I law, and what is the pro 'ision ? It pro- 
j vide.-* by law that, in tb ! happeninjc ol 
I that coniingency. that la lure to act, no 
I one of the eleven State,- of tbe United 
Spates shall stnd a Representative to 
! either House of Congres i. It would be 
1 bindinc to the Senate until repealed, 
I beyond the present Conpress . it would 
I bind us in the next Conj tress and bind 
, us in the Congress after that It would 
! be of perpetual binding obligation for- 
I ever until repeabd by a* t of Congress. 
j Sir. what would have l-een thought of 
the Joint resolution raisii g the Commit- 
I tee on the Conduct of tb ' War if there 
I bad been contained in it a provisiou simi- 
lar to this, which the Senator from Rhode 
Island moves to strike « ut, and which 
tho Senator froiii Micbig in insists shall 
be retained, and upon which he calls the 
yeas and nays of the Serate? Suppose 
that iu that joint reiolution tnere 
had been a provision declaring that until 
th#joint ('onimittee on tie Conduct of 
the War should make th< ir (3nal report, 
and Congress should ta ic final action

' terred to that Committee without debate' 



for tbe very purpose of considering such 
questions, and for no other purpose. 
^rom its T°ry organization, the Senate 
designs to make that committee its con- 
stitutional adviser — not that its opinions 
are to be lonclusive or controlling on 
any member of ihis body, like the opin- 
ion of the bench of Judges in tbe House 
of Lords ; but its members are chosen in 
consideration of their high professional 
ability, their long experience and well 
known standing as jurists, in order (bat 
their report upon constitutional (juestions 
mav be entitltd to the hii:best considera- 
tion. And sir, if you look into the or- 
ganization ot the Judiiiary Committee 
appointed by the Senate at tho present 
'tissioo, what fs it ' There is the Sena- 
tor from Illinois, [Mr. Trambull.] for 
years a judge ot tbe Supreme Court of 
that State before he entered this body, 
who for ten vears or more has been a 
^thful, laboriou:^. distinguished member 
of that committee, and lor tbe last four 
years its chairman. And tbere sit^my 
honorable friend Irom New York, [Mr. 
Uairis,] for twenty years before he came 
here, known and distinguished among 
tbe able jurists and judges of that great 
State. 

There is fnpon that committee also tbe 
honorable Senator from Maryland, [Mr. 
JchnsoQ,] whom I do not now see in his 
seat, who, for a quarter of a century or 
more, has borne a high national repnta- 
tion as among the ablest jurists of this or 
any country, twice a Senator, once tbe 
Attorney Oeneral of the United States. 
And there is the honorable Senator from 
Vermont [Mr. PolaDd.] He his, it is 
true, just entered this body, but his rep- 
utation as a jurist preceded his coming, 
and he comes here to fill ttic place m this 
chamber, and is put upon this judiciary 
committee to till the place of him, of 
whom I will sar wilbou: disparagement 
to any, that he was the ablest of us all — 
the late distingnishcd Senator from Ver- 
mont [Mr. Collamer.] And there is the 
Senator from New Hampshire, [Mr. 
Claric,] from the far East, and the Sena- 
tor from Nevada, [Mr. Stewart.] from 
the Pacific en ist. and tbo Senator from 
Indiana. [Mr. Hendricks,] Irom tbe cen- 
tral rcgio J, each of whom stands cmiuent 
in tbe profcsiiion in tbe State which be 
represents, and all of whom hxv. rccog- 
Btzed b^re among the ablest jurists of 
this body. 

Mr. President, ther>' is nutbing in the 
btstory of the Senate, there is nothing in 
tbe constitution of this committer, which 
would send these great constitotional 
questions for adv^icmL-ut and considera- 
tion to any other committee than the 
Committee on Judiciary. To plac« their 
consideration in tbe b,and8 of a oommit- 
tee which is beyond the control of the 
Senate, is to distrust ourselves ; and to 
vote to send their consideration to any 
other committee is equivalent to a want 
of confidence in the judiciary committee. 

But sir, some gentlemen have said and 
urged with great pertinacity, if not with 
force, a .■'ense of propriety toward tbe 
this 



Monstrous as such a proposition would 
have been, it might, perh ips, have been 
witbin the purview of thi Constitution 
for us to adopt it . but on the subject of 
representation in this bodj , it is not with- 
in our constitutional power to delegate 
our power to any other I ody, or to any 
committee which we ounelves do not 
control. 

Mr. Prcjiilenf. I believe that under the 
Constitution, upon all subjects of legis 
lation but oae, the two He uses are equal 
and co-ordinat«; branches of Congress. 
That one relates to their representation 
in tbe bodies, to their membership, that 
which constitutes their eaisence. which is 
essential to their life and their indepen- 
dence, that is confided t<> each House, 
and to each House alone. ' o act lo? itself. 
It judges for itself upon tbe elections, 
returns, and qu ditication* i>f its members. 
Ic judges, it admit.^, it pinisbes, it ex- 
pels. It can not share tba responsibility 
with any oih-r depirtme it ot the Gov- 
ernment. It can no morr share it with 
tbe other House than it ca » share it with 
the Supreme Court or with the President 
It is a matter over wbick its jurisdiction 
is exclusive of every other jurisdiction. 
It is a matter in which its decisions, right 
or wrong, are absolute a: id without ap 
peal. Sir. in my opinion, thii Senate of 
the United States can not give to a com- 
mittee beyond \U control this question of 
the representation in this body, without 
a loss of tho Hell-rcapect its dignity, its 
independence; without an abaudonment 
of its constitutional duty a id a surrender- 
ing of its constitutional powers. 

The President pro tempo 'e— The morn- 
ing hour having expired, t becotnes the 
duty of th'* Cbair to call ny the untinisfaed 
business of yesterday, wh ch is the reso- 
lution of the Senator from idassachusetts, 
(Mr. Sumner.) an amendment being 
meved to it by tho Senatcr from Mary- 
land. (Mr. Johnson.) 

Mr. Trumbull— I move 1 > lay that aside 
until the Senator from Wij cousin finishes 
his remarks. 

Mr Sumner I observe that the Sena- 
tor from Maryland is not iubis seat, and, 
therefore. 1 should not thiik of proceed- 
ing with mat resolution. 

Mr Fessenden — Let ns jjo on and close 
this. 

The President pro <<w/ ore— The Sen- 
ator from Wisconsin will proceed with 
his remarks, if there be no objection. 
The unfinished business of yesterday wi'l 
be> laid aside. 

Mr. Doolittle— Mr. Prciident. there is 
another provision in tkia :x;8olation as it 
stands. It not only takes from tbe Sen- 
ate all power to act over this subject un- 
til this committee shall rej ort, and Con- 
gress shall tske final action, but it de- 
clares that we fball refer every paper to 
the committee without deb ue. Yes. sir. 
the Senate of the United itatcs is to be 
led like a Iamb to the slj nghter, bound 
hand and foot, shorn of it; constitutional 
power, and gauged, dumb like the sheep 
brought to the block: Is his the condi- 
tion to which the Senator from Michigan 



of them, and not to destroy (hem. Tbe ' 
guarantee in the Constitution is a guaran- 
tee to the States, and to every one of the 
Stales, and the obligation that rests opjn 
us is to guarantee to South Carolina a 
republican form of government as a State 
in this Union, and not as a territory. 
The doctrine of the territorial eondition 
of these States, that they are mere con- 
fjiered, subjugated territories, as if we 
bad conquered Canada or Mexico, will 
not stand argument for a moment. It is 
utterly at war with the ground on which 
we stand and have stood from tbe begin- 
ning. The grotind we occupied was this : 
that no State nor the people of any State 
had anv power to withdraw from the Un- 
ion. They could not do it peacefully ; 
they undertook to do it by arms ; we 
crushed tbe attempt ; wc trampled their 
armies under oar feet; we captured the 
rebellion: the States are ouis; and we 
entered ihem to save, and not to de- 
stroy. 

Mr. President, t do not wish to be 
drawn now into the cliscussion of these 
questions at length, t may have an op- 
portunity on some other occasion to do 
so. I simply now am stating the objec- 
tions wbicb I had to this resolution as it 
came from the House of Representatives. 
It degrades the Senate ; it robs it of its i 
constitutional power ; it puts the control \ 
of a question which 'n exclusively ours ! 
into the hands of the other House ; it dis- ' 
solves the Union by law of Congress. , 

Mr. President, I have noideatheUouso i 
of Representatives had any such inten- | 
tion. I am bound always to speak with ' 
respect of the Hoilse of Representatives 
and of the infcntio*!s of that body. I 



j to give us pain, 
withstanding tjie 



other House in this peculiar case, we , , . .. « . r.u ty ■ 

ought to consent to send the coosidera- proposes to reduce the Scr ate of the Uni- 



tion of this question to a joint committee 
of the two Houses. When my friends 
with whom I have associated in political 
action have urged this consideration upon 
me, in order to secure harmonious ac- 
tion, I confess that I have so far yielded 
my judgment as to give way to the ap- 
pointment of a joint committee, provided 
that in that committee, as it should be' 
established by tbe two Houses, the Sen- 
ate should maintain 'ts equality, and 
tbere should be no substantial objection 
lo tbe powers conferred upon tbe com- 
mittee itself. 

This brings me to the consideration of 
tbe joint resolution as it r-- from the 
House of Representatives , ai.ti I ask that 
It be read. 

Tbe Secretary read tbe re*'>'n»"'>n as it 
was passed by the House of Repf senta- 
trves. 

Mr. Doolittle — Mr. Presidfi, the 
resolution as it came from the . . ; e of 
Representatives to the Senate n . < r, : »int 
resolution, and if passed by this uuy in 
that form, would have required tho Big- , » . . 

nature of tbe President, and in that event I nav« »ny i-'agwlatures 
it would have become the law of the 
land, binding upon both Houses of Con- 
gress and upon the whole Government, 
until repealed by tbe joint action of the 
two Houses with the concurrence of the 
Executive. That, however, by the amend- 
ment first offered by tbe Senator from 
Rhode Island, has been obviated, and by 
tbe language of the resolution as it now 
stands amended, it is a resolution of con- 
currence only, not requiring, according 

to the practi'^e of the Government, the 

signature of tbe President. 

But, sir, f object to this resolution in 

the first place, because upon these great 

questions which are to go to the jointcom- 

mittee, tbe Senate does not stand upon an 

equality with the House. This roaolu- 

tion provided that, of the joint committee 

of fifteen, nine shall be appointed by the 

HoDseoi Representatives, six oaly by 

tbe Senate, giving to tbe House portion 

of the committee a majority of three 

We all know that in joint committees the ^. 

members vote, not as tbe representatives 

ol tbe two HoBses, but per capita. The 

▼ote of a member of the committee from 
.tbe House weighs precisely the same as a 

Tote of a membof of ibc •-•>in.-5;;fte£ from 

tbe Senate : so that to all intents and 

puiposes, it wo pass this concurrent res- 
olution, which we can not repeal but by 



sometimes alarm, but not- 
bud appearance which 
from tiirti to 'iiqo rreseoto it^jclf in the 
iiii(bt of that bo'lifig celcfrou of pat^iion 
and excitement which the war hfui left sfill 
raging there, the real progres.s which we 
have ma«ie bus b<^n most wonderful. I 
say to you, Seuator8, it is my deliberate 
opinion, that if, when we adjournoil lost 
spring, an adjfCl frtjtn tlie skies could have 
come dowu here and told Us that at our 
meeting now, our country would be in so 
hopeftil B condition as it is, we would not 
have believed It; it would have been be- 
yond our credence, beyoud otlr belief. 1 
am one of those who look forward n'lth 
ho\ie, for I bolievfe God reigns and rules in 
the nJffairs of manTclnd. I look beyond 
the excitement of tbe hour rind till the 
outbreaking pae^ion which sometimes 
shows itself in tbe South, "^hich lead.s them 
to make enactmentK in their Legislatures 
which are djugraceful to themselves, and 
cau never bo souctioued by the people of 
I this country, and also in spite of all the 
I excitement of the North, I behold the fu- 
1 tare full of confidence and hope. We 
have only to come up like men, aud stand 
as the real friends of the country and tho 
Admiuistration, and give to the policy of 
tbe President a fair and substantial trial, 
and nil will be Well 

Mr. Fessendeu — .Mr. President, I am 
very sorry that this debate has sprung up. 
I think it exceedingly out of place, with 
regahi to the manner iu which it has been 
conducted, oud some of the topics which 
have been spoken of. 1 do not, ia saying 
this, wish to be considered us finding fault 
with any gentleman, because every Senator 
tnu.st Judgu for himself as to what it is ad- 
vi^ble for bitti to say, and it is not for 
any other Senator to arritfgli bim on that 
point. But it sometimes happens that 
things which are foreign to the question 
are said which ought not to be suffered to 
pass without a little comment. 

Now, sir, allow me to say that when 
this resolution was first promulgated in the 
newsp^K?rs as having been agree<l upon, I 
njiproved it because 1 sympathized with 
Its object and purpose. 1 did not examine 
if particularly; but, looking simply at 
what it was designed for, it met my ap- 
probation simply for this reason: that this 
question of the admission, if yon please fo 
call it 80; (it is not worth while to stand 
about wonls, ) of thcHe conftderati* States, 
so called, and all the questions connected 
with that subject, I conceived to be of in- 
finite importance, requiring calm and se- 
..... .. , nous consideration, and I believed that the 

published proceedmgs I .ppojntment of a committee, earvfully se- 

trutb. To that I am i^^^^j ^y the two Hons*^, take that 

subject into consideration, was not only 



ted States by insisting up >n such a pro 
vision as that contained in the resolution 
as it comes fmmtbc Hous ; of Represen- 
tatives ? 

Mr. President, there i a still graver 
objection to this resolutioi as it stands. 
The provision that "until such report 
shall have been made ard finally acted 
on by Congress, no meml>er shall be re- 
ceived into either House f om any of the 
so-called confederate stat«," is a provi- 
sion which, by law, excludes those eleven 
States from their repres. ntation in the 
Union. Sir, pass that -eaolution as it 
stands, and Ut it recetve t ke signature of 
the President and you h ve accomplish- 
ed what the rebellion could %ot acromplish, 
what the sacrifice of half a million men 
could not accomplish'in i 'arring against 
this Government — you ha '« dissolved the 
Union by Act of Congres,' . Sir, are we 
prepared to sanction tiiat? I trust 
never. 

Tbe Senator from Michigan talks about 
tbe status of these States. He may very 
properly raise the questioi whather they 

thst are capa- 
ble of electing Senators to this body. 
That is a question of fact to be consider- 
ed; but as to whether taey are States, 
and States still witbin tbe Union, not 
withstanding their civil form of govern- 
ment has been overtam id by the rebel- 
lion, and their Legi.'?latiire3 have been 
disorganized — that they are still States 
in this Union is tho mo it sacred truth, 
and tbe dearost truth to every Am^can 
heart, and it will be mi- intained by tbe 
American people against aU opposition, 
«ome from what (juart< r it may. Sir. 
tbe flag that now floats on the top of this 
Capitol bears thirty-six start. Every 
star represents a State in this Union. I 
ask tbe Senator from Michigan, docs that 
gag, as it floats there, s] eak the nation's 
truth to our people and to tbe world, or 
is it a bypocritiokl, flaanting lie? That 
Hag has been borne at he head of our 
conquering legions thrnugh the whole 
^. j South, planted at Vickslurg, planted st 
the [Columbia, Savannah, C barleston, Sum- 
ter ; the same old llag w neb came down 
before the rebellion at S unter was raised 
up again', and still bore tic same glorious 
stars, "not a star obscui ed," not one. 

Mr. Fessenden — Weri not some of 
those stars obscunri r 

Mr. Doolittle— No, sii . These people 
have bean disorganized a their civil gov- 



liniply say- 

The President /)ro tempore— The Cbair 
will suggest that it is not within the mlet 
of order for the proceedings of the House 
ot Representatives to be discussed here. 

Mr. Doolittle— Would it be in order 
to make a statement that the resolution 
was passed without debate in the other 
House ' 

The Piesident pro femporc— Tbe Chair 
thinks not. 

Mr. Doolittle— That is all I designed 
to say, that it passed that House without 
debate. I do not mean any disrespect to 
the House. 

But, Mr. President, there was another 
assemblage in Washington which took 
p ace not long since, and whose proceed- 
ings are published as the proceedings of 
a caucus of gentlemen in tbe city of 
Washington. I suppose no rule of the 
Senate requires me to speak in any other 
terms of those 
than to speak tbo 

williug to be bound. By the published | 
proceedings of that asscmblilge, it would i 
seem that on a Saturday night, without \ 
any discussion whatever, a certain reso- 
lution, which roads word for word just 
like this resolution wbicb is sent here 
from the House of Representatives, was ; 
adopted in that caucus under the leader- i 
ship of a certain gentleman — I will not , 
speak of bim as a member of the House, j 
but as a man known in history — who re- | 
sides in Pennsylvania. | 

I refer to Hon. Tbaddeus Stevens. His 
history is known to all men; and one 
thing we know of him certainly, that he 
is most bitterly, uncompromisingly hostile 
to the policy of the present Administra- 1 
tion on the subject of reeonstruclion. He j 
goes with bim who goes the farthest, 
holding that even the State of Tennessee 
is ail alien State at war with the United ' 
States ; and if I am not misinformed, in > 
the Convention at Baltimore, which nom- j 
inated Messrs. Lincoln and Johnson for I 
President and Vice President, he objected ' 
to (he nomination of Andrew Johnson I 
because he was an alien enemy .' Sir, I | 
have seen nothing in the history of that i 
gentleman to lead me to suppose that he 
has m any respect changed his opinion, 
for it is not long since we read a speecb | 
of his, delivered in the State of Pennsyl- | 
vania, marked with bis usual ability, 
with bis great boldnes.", with that cool as- > 
surance which sometimes almost rises to 
thu sublime, in which be proposed, if I 
do not mistake, almost the entire and 
universal confiscation of tbe whole of the 
Southern States. 

Now, Mr. President, of the doings of 
that assemblage in connection with the 
resolution 1 feel at perfect liberty to 
speak without violating tho rules of this 
House. I will not speak with disrespect 
even of that assemblage ; I have not 
done so ; I do not intend to do so. I 
simply say that within three minutes, by 
the clock, after the hour when that assem- 
blage was called, Thaddeu? Stevens had 
moved bis committee on resolutions and 
was withdraakig with bis committee from 
the body to make his report, and within 
ten minutes, without any discussion, 
without any consideration whatever, it 
was by that cool tact and talent of bis 
pressed through tbe body and declared 
to be unanimously adopted. Why this 
hot baste, sir? What necessity of this 
hot haste? Who does not know that tbe 



was 

tt'ise in itself, but an imperative duty rest- 
ing upon tbe representatives of the people 
in the two bratK'bes of Congresg. For 
myself, I was not prepartnl to act npon 
that q uestion at once. I am not one of 
those who pin their faith upon anybody, 
however eminent in position, or conceive 
themselves obliged on a question of great 
national importance to follow out any- 
body's opinions simply because he is in a 
position to make those opinionsi, perhaps, 
somewhat more imperative than any other 
citizens of the Republic. Talk about the 
Administration! Sir, wo are a part of the 
Administration, and n very important part 
of it. I have no idea of abandoning tho 
prerogatives, the rights, and tho duties of 
my position in favor of anybody, however 
that jjerson or any number of pcrsous may 
desire it. In saying this, I am not about 
to e.xpress an opinion upon tho subject any 
further than I have expressed it, and that 
i.s, that in questions of such infinite im- 
portance as this, involving the integrity 
and welfare of the Repubbc iu all future 
time, wc are solemnly oound, and our cou- 
Htitueuts will demand of ue, that we ox- 
uiniue them with care and fidelity, and act 
ou our own conviction?, and not upon the 
convictions of others. 

I have said that I was in favor of this 
resolution when I first read it, for the rea- 
son that it looked to a purpose which I ap- 
prove — calm and deliberate consideration 
before action ; but when I came to read it 
over more carefully and hear the opinions 
of others, I came to the conclasion, for tbe 
reasons that have been given by my hon- 
orable friend from Rhode Island, that the 
resolution perhaps went a little too far. 
It was important to have a committt^ by 
which this subject should bo investigated, 
composed of members of the two Houses, 
for the reason, among others that it ia 
very importauttbat the two Hoosee should 
act iu harmony, that one House should not 
take action that would be at variance with 
tho action of the other, and that, after in- 
vestigation of the subject, it would result, 
as I believe, from the constitutiou of Con- 
gress, that the two Houses would act in 
harmony, ou the same principles, and with 
the same views, and neither would act has- 
tily. Therefore, the committee was im- 
portant, and a committee that should be 
carefully chosen, as I said before, and de- 
liberate well and advise well; and I did 
leader of that assemblage ditl not desire j not conceive that a little delay, that a few 



the concurrenee of tbe other House, we i ernments in consequenc ! of the war ; tbe 



place the consideration of these grave 
questions in the hands ol a committee 
which we can not control, and in wbicb 
we have no equal voice. 

Mr. President, another objection to the 
resolution as it came from the Hoose, 



rebels overturned civil government in the 
first place, and we entt red with our ar- 
mies and captured the r hellion ; but did 
that destroy the State i? Not at all. 
We entered the Statts to save them, not 
to destroy them. Our :oostitutional du- 



to wait, nor did be dare to wait, until the 
President had spoken to tbe country in 
his annual message. 

The Constitution of tbo United States 
refiuirea tbe President from time to time 
to give to Congress information of the 
state of the Union. Who has any right 
to presume that the President will not 
furnish the information which his consti- ' 
tutional duty requires ? He has at his 1 
control all the agencies which are neces- 
sary. There is the able Cabmet who I 
surround him, with all the oflicers ap- | 
pointed under them : the postmasters 
under the Post OfiSice Department, the 
Treasury agents under the Treasury De- 
partment, and almost two hundred thou- 
sand men under the control of the War 
Department in every part of this "dis- 
affected" region, who can bring to tbe 
President information from everpr quarter 
of all tbe transactions that exist there. 
Why, 1 ask, bad this assemblage the 
right to presume that the President would 
not furnish the information which the 
Constitution required ? Sir, we are here 
claiming to be the friends of the late la- 
mented President, and the friends of him 
upon whom by bis death the responsibili- 
ties of power have fallen. We aided in 
their election. They were nominated at 
Baltimore after the great experiment of 
reconstruction had already begun. Mr. 
Lincoln bad already for months, for al- 
most a year, been pursuing substantially 
the same policy of reconstruction which 
has since been followed by bis successor. 
Andrew Johnson was himself one of the 
agencies which bad been employed by 
Mr. Lincoln in the State of Tennessee 
in tbe Hope of restoring civil government 
there ; and it was under these circumstan- 
ces, not with tb} approval of all men at 
^Va8bington, but with the approval of tbe 
great masses of the people of this coun- 
try, that Abraham Lincoln was re-nomi- 
nated as President, and that Andrew 
Johnson was nominated to be Vice Pres- 
ident of the United States, and they were 
triumphantly indorsed and sustained by 
the i>eoplp; and I tell Senators now, in my 
opinion — 1 speak with all respect to other 
IJentlemen — that the President of the Uni- 
ted States will be sustaiu-'l, it. tUr. vicvs 
which ho takes iu bi.s message, by the peo- 
ple of this country is ascertain or tho rev- 
olutions of the earth; and it is our duty to 
act harmoniously with him, to sustain him, 
to hold up his hands, to strengthen his 
heart, to speak to him words of faith, 
friendship, and courage. 

Mr. President, I know that in all these 



■tin", and ^*i(b ability fntr greater, I am 
ready to asseverate , 

But, sir, I do not afrree « Hh fire doc- 
trine,, uiid I desire to enter my disseaf to 
; it now awl here, that, because a certain 
Hue of polic V htxti beeu adopted by one 
branch of i lit Gey^rmrtent, or certain 
views are entertained fy ni" iTaiich of 
the Government, therefore, for thui rf>nsou 
alone and none other, that is to lie tried, 
oven if it is against my judgment; and I 
do ni>t soy tliat it is or is not. That is a 
(|ue8tion io be considered. I have a great 
respect, not for myself, ficrhaps, but for 
the position which I liold a.s a Senator of 
tbe United States; and no meai<ure of 
Government, no policy of the President, 
or of the head of a Department, shall pas.s 
me. while I am a Senator, if I know if, 
until t have e.raniinctl it uud gireu my as- 
sent t(^ it; not ou accouuf of fhe .source 
from which it eniauati's, but ffli account of 
its own intrinsic merits, aud ''ccuUse 1 be- 
lieve it will result iu the pwd of my coun- 
try. That is my duty as a Senator, aud I 
fear no tnisconstruetioii at home ou this 
subject or any other. I have reproeented 
the .State from which I come too loiiff to 
fear anything of that kiij<l. If I act 
against the prejudices or precouceived 
opinions of that people, they are always 
ready to hear me, aud bear my reasons, 
and if they are satisfactory to them, to 
give nie credit for them, and, if not satis- 
factory, at least to give uic creibt for 
good iutentions; mi<l that is all I ask of 
anybody. ^ 

Now, therefon', sir, I hoijo that, laying 
aside all these matters which are entirely 
foreign, xfe shall act upon this resolu- 
tion simply as a matter of business. Xo 
one has a right to complain of it that we 
rmse a committee for certain purposes of 
our own when we judge it to be necessa- 
ry. It is an imputation npon nobody; it 
is an iuault to nobody; it is not anything 
which any sensible man could erPr find 
fault with, or he dispo.sed to do .=^0. It io 
our judgment, our deliberate judgment, 
our friendly judj^ment— a course of action 
adopted from n^gard to the good of the 
community, aud that irood of the commu- 
nity comprehends the good of every indi- 
vidual in it 

Allow me to say, sir, io closin;:, one 
thing whcih I may as well ,suy now in the 
beginfling vf the .session, because it is the 
principle wh?ch I iuteud 3hall guide my 
actiou, and I hope will giliie the action of 
all of us. AVe have just gone through a 
state of war. While wc wei-c in it it be- 
came necessary all around to do certain 
things for which jierliaps no strict warrant 
will be found; contrary, at any rate to 
previous experience. That I admit most 
distinctly. Sir, 1 defended them from the 
beginning. I laid down tbe principle that 
tbe man who, placed in a positiou such as 
the President and other officers occupied, 
would not, in a time of war, and when his 
country was io peril, put his own reputa- 
tiou at hazard as readily as he would auy- 
thing else in order to do hi.s duty, was not 
fit for his place. I upheld many things 
then that perhaps I would not uphold now 
because they are uot necessary. The time 
must tome when tho Senate and House of 
Rcpressntatives, the Cougress, must revert 
to its own original positiou. I do not 
think there will bo the slightest danger: I 
have uo appi"ehension of any; but if I act 
upon different principles now and hereafter 
in a state of jieaco, from those which 1 
adopted aud dcfeuded befora, I wish eve- 
rybody to understand tho reason for it In 
all countries, iu all iiati()ii.>, in a time of 
extreme peril, cvtreme aud somewhat 
questlouable measures aro inevitable. 

Mr. Johnson — ITie Senator does uot 
uuderstand me as holding a different doc- 
trine, because I maintained that on the 
floor of tbe Senate. 

Mr. Fosseudeu — I tiust not. But in 
time of peace, when wo live under a writ- 
ten Constitution, it is our duty to come 
back as fast us possible; to forget. If nec- 
essary, anv precedent which might, if made 
in times like these, have occasioned very 
Hcrious difficulty and trouble. 

Now, sir, 1 have said this; it is as much 
out of place as anything I complained of 
in other gentlemen; but I took tho occa- 
sion simply because itprcseuted itself, and 
it would seem Bomewbat connectotl with 
what has taken place. I trust we shall 
adopt the amendment propo.sed by tlie 
honorable Senator from Rhode Lsjand, 
aud I believe that if tho resolution be 
passed in that form it will acconipli.di all 
it is desirable to accomplish and he en- 
tirely satisfactory. 

Mr. Howard — At the suggestion of 
some of my friends I withdraw tbe call 
for tho yeas and nays.

weeks' time, or even a few months' time, if 
necessary, giveu to that subject, would bo 
misspent. We had better spend a little 
time now than take a step to be repented 
of in all our after lives and in all the fu- 
ture life of the Republic. 

My friend from Michigan (Mr. Howard) 
will allow no to say to him tb at I do not 
think tbe quPstion of whether the men who 
may present themselves as members are fit 
to come in now, or whether the States of 
which they profess to he representatives 
are fit to come in now aud act with us and 
ought to be admitted to do so, is involved 
in this qnestiou at all. He has argued it 
as if by striking out thus portion of the 
resolution we bad settled that. By no 
manner of means. If it would do so, I 
would vote with him. We are only set- 
tling, ou the contrary, that that question 
shall be deferred until a committee of both 
branches have thoroughly considered it and 
reported to this body; and certainly I shall 
go with bim us long as I belive that com- 
mittee is doing its duty in opposing action 
uponthe subject committed to it until it is 
ready to enlighten ns with the information 
it may have received and tbe conclusions 
to which it may have arrived, I say this 
simply to bar the inference, that by this ac- 
tion iu amending it any one who may vote 
for it means to say or intimate that he is 
ready to act npon that question now aud 
admit anybody from any of these so-called 
confederate States. Certainly I am not 
one of them, and yet I shall vote with 
tbe honorable Senator from Rhode Island. 
On the other hand, I do not agree with* 
the honorable Senator from Wisconsin, 
that by passing a simple reeolution raising 
a committee of our own body, ond refer- 
ring to it certain papers, if we conclude to 
do so, we are iufriugiug upou the rights of 
anybody or makiug an intimation with re- 
gard to any policy that the President may 
have seen fit to adpot and recommended 
to the country. Sir, I trust there arc no 
such things as exclusive friends of the 
President among us, or gontiemeu who de- 
sire to be so considered. 1 have as much 
r<>spect for tho President of the United 
States probably as any man. I acted with 
him long, and I might express tho favora- 
ble opinions which I eulerlam of bim liMtr 
if they would not be out of place, and in 
bad taste in this body. That lam dis- 
posed and ready to support him to the best 
of my ability, an every gentleman around 
me is, in good faith and with kind feeling 
in all that he may desire that ia consistent 
with my viewa of duty to the cotintry, giv 



stand me very well. You know that I am 
a poor, weak, easily deceived man, you 
think that you arc fii astute, hardly-seen- 
througli woman, luanaging me ns you 
please. Now tell me tlw truth — don't 
you? 

"If you do, you are half right and half 
wrong. I am u man rather of facts and 
.stern purjwsos. than of woman thoughts 
and dreamy indoleucc. My life is oflly 
commtucrng as far as regards the weary 
roatl ahead of i^, and, if Providence pro- 
longs it I will leave after n* a name ami 
a success. 

"But with all this, I'm a weak man sad 
a fool; weak, that I should bo caught in 
the midst of my grave purposes by the 
gilded du.st of n butterfly's wiug; aud a 
fool because while thus caught, I smear 
my fingers with the perishable color." 

"What is it that I miss in Maggie Fox, 
tliat I cannot find in them? I'll tell you. 
It is nWt beauty, for they aro as beautiful 
:v^ you It is uot kind words or demon- 
■itration'-. for they go further than you, but 
it is iu that strange mi.vture of child and 
woman, of simplioity at: I canning, of pas- 
sionate impulse and extreme <»elf-control, 
that has mode you a curious study. Mag- 
gie, you are very pretty, very childlike, 
very deceitful, but to me as readable as my 

gramlmother's Bible." 

* * « * » 

"When I think of you dear dearling, 
wasting your time and youth and con- 
science for a few paltry dollars, aud think 
of the crowds who come nightly to hear 
of the wild stories of the frozen north, I 
sometimes feel that we are uot so far re- 
moved after all. My brain and your body 
are each the sources of attraction, and I 
confess that there is not so much differ- 
ence." 

***** 

"I am glail that you don't pretend, but 
until you look upon me with trust and 
brotherly confidence you can never love 
me. Ton will have to do this soon, Mag- 
gie; for some morning you will wake up 
aud fiud that your friend is for evt r lost to 
you. I do these things in a very queer 
way. Some day or other I will say to my- 
self, 'Am I not injuring my dignity by 
thus throwing away upon a person in a 
walk of life diflerent from my own, feel- 
ings which she cau never understand aud 
of which she is uot worthy I' This ques- 
tion 1 will answer for myself, the answer 
be against you, Maggie, you will .see me 

no more." 

***** 

"I know that you have a tender heart; 
but practice in anything hardens us. You 1 
do thingfi now which you would never 
have dreamed of doing years ago, and \ 
there will como a time when you will be | 
\^fhje than — a hardened woman, gathering f 
around you victims of a delusion. Think , 
of that, Katy ! j 

'The older you grow tho more difficult j 
it will be to liberate yourself from this ! 
thing. At.d cau you look forward to a life j 
unblessed by the affe<*tions, uusoothcd by 
the consciousness of doing right ! For 
you, no innocence with the bletisings of a ! 
kindly home is now in stoi-e. When your 
mother leaves this scene can you and my 
still dear Maggie be content to live (hat 
life nf ecrn.><taiit deceit ?" 

"First 1 am better, nobler in moral tone 
than I have seemed to you. My con- 
science urges me to a crusade of rescue 
for our lost men. now wandering in an icy 
wilderness; and for it and them I am 
about to .sacrifice tbo thou: and dear tilings 
of life, home, hi.xury, and love. 

"After spending from my private means 
that which would to you be a fortune, T 
am about to ^peud the treat^nred years of 
a lifetime, perhaps liOf itJelf. '

MILLINERY OPENING! 



Sottthera States then are athougand things log him credit for intentioni as good as 



The fricuds of Miss Margaret Fox, or 
as she claims to be Mr.-. Dr. Elisbn Kent 
Kane, have published a- volume to vindi- 
cate her memory, they .say. They publish 
a batch of poorly written letters to .show 
that Miss Fox (the spirit rapper) wa.s le- 
gally Mrs. Kane. The World states the 
case as follows: 

The history here told, cleared from the 
mawkish ti-ash of its introduction, and the 
assumptions scattered throujjh it, is this: 
Dr. Kane, the famous navigator, was at- 
tracted by the modest nianuer.s of a pretty 
girl of thirteen placed among a crew of 
speculators in vulgar credulity, who used 
her as their tool, in what ho calls "a life 
of suspected deceit and of ambiguous re- 
spect.' Disgusted with the now exploded 
imposture of spiritualism, and striving to 
impress his disgust upon her, he gradually 
forms the plan of educating her for better 
things, merely as a friend and protector. 
His feeling,^, becoming more interested, 
softened into tenderness, and an engage- 
ment is at last proposed, which she ac- 
cepts with coldness, and which her friends, 
reluctant to lose their trade in her profita- 
ble peculiarities, reject, while his own fam- 
ily naturally oppose any connection with a 
circle of so notorious idiocy. Through 
their influence, the engagement is ended, 
to bfi renewed some months later, and fol- 
lowed by the shadow of a marriage, con- 
sisting in the mere declaration of conseot, 
witeout civil ceremony or religious rite, 
and, as far as appears, without consumma- 
tion. After the death of Dr. Kane, oc- 
curring before this union was perfected by 
any more binding solemnity, an action was 
brought to establish the marriage, which 
was seittled by an agreement on her part 
to accept an annuity. Delays in paytnent 
occasioned another suit to enforce her 
claims under this agreement, which, ■v^e are 
told, was discontinued for want of means 
to carry it on. And at this point itseems 
to have occurred to tho parties having 
charge of these transactious that some 
vindication of the honor of the persons 
engaged !n them wa.sj required, aud that 
tho cflfect might be gained by exposing to 
the censorious world the letters contained 
in this volume, when, at^ we are informed 
with ittfamon." «iinnlio.it.y. "their publica- 
tion many years ago might bave giveu her 
an independence." 

The following specimeua of tho corres- 
pondence are characteristic of Dr Kane: 

"Yon say 'that you do not understand 
me' — 'I am a riddle' — 'au enigma,' aud all 
that nonseoie. Dear Maggie, you under- 



meetings enly add fuel to the flame. Do 
write to me, Maggie, .and tell me what your 
own heart tolls you is best. 

'if you really can ni.ike up your mind 
to tibjure the spirits, to study aud improve 
your mental aud moral nature, it may be 
that a cai-eer of Vnightness will be open to 
you; and upon this chance, slender us it is, 
I ofler, like a true friend, to guard and ed- 
ucate you." 

■,e if w -W it 

'•You know I am nervous about the 
'rappings." I believe the only thing I ever 
was afraid of wa-s, this confounded thing 
being found out. I would not know it 

myself for ten thousand dollars. " 

# « » » 

"There is a real enjoyment in th«' ixcite- 
raent of watching and working for tho 
couversiou of tho skeptical. Do not think, 
then, that poor 'Ly' blames you for this 
natural fondness for tho ingrown habits of 
six years. But remember, Maggie, that 
all this will not last. It is 'fun' now, but 
what will it bo wheu, looking back upou 
twelve misspent aud dreary years, you feel 
that there have been no acts really accept- 
able to your Maker, and that for the years 
ahead, all will he soriiiw, f-anieiiese, and 
disgust 1" 

'•\*ou know how brotherly my feelings 
are, and how plea.sant it would bf to me 
— when tloatiii;.i in th;- arctic, waste — to 
feel that 1 had contrilmted to make your 
life useful and happy. 

"At present you have nothing to look 
forward to — nothiiig to liojje for. Your 
life is one constant round of idle excite- 
ment C.1U your mother — who is au ex- 
cellent woman — look iiiioii you, a girl of 
thirteen, a.s doomed at your life to live sur- 
rounded by such iis now surround you — 
deprivcKl of all the blessings of home, and 

love, aud even sclf-resi»ect!" 

*■ # * » 

"Write me a letter, solemnly promising 
never to rap again. Do, dear Mag., do 
this; you will feel happier lor it. Remem- 
ber in this awful hour of death the fearful 
sius and sorrows that have grown out of 
Uiat girlish trick. Think how the little 
stream has become a mountain torrent; 
and when the great God punishes, ho will 
go to the fountain-head. Do. do, dtai' Pet, 
make me the promi&e. "

I have lately thought and rtt'et. ted much

reader, at tb-.s suggestion. I will >how 
you that it i.-« practicable and lor the true 
mtere t ot the general i'usioess ol the

us to pursue. Not that we ignoic Mil- 
waukee and Chicago from choice, but 
from lorce ol circuinstaE<,es. Many. 1 
know, will regret it. but our intere.'-t com- 
rel» the !A'rili:c. 

1. The impossibility ot breaking up 
'he monopolg new so lirmly established 
by the niilroads leading to thoM' cities. 
Pavidson claims a contract wuh the Mil- 
waukee and St. Paul railroad that does 
not expire until the spring ot "07, where- 
by said road is compelled to give him all 
the freight that couics to La Crosse for 
the Upper Mississippi, and to receive no

next season. St. Louis, that t l<fst so 
much by the war, is again stretching out 
her armb to grasp the trade of the upper 
Mississippi, and she will surely ^et it, 
unless Chicago and Milwaukee join with 
us in an efifort t o relieve the Northwest 
from the oppression of tliose who have 
the carrying trat'e in their own bands. 

St. Louis will open the sevson with a 
new, daily line of boats, seven of which 
arc to be fitted up for passengers, and 
seven exclusively for freight. These 
boats will possess peculiar advantages 
for gaining popular favor. The p.asscn- 
ger boats being unencumbered with 
trcight. can make better time, and afford 
better facilities for traveling ; while the 
frei^t boats, having no especial anxiety 
to make fast time, can alFord to wait 
long enough to take the trcight that is 
ollerod. The season wdl be a lively one, 
XJ immense piantities of wheat will be 
brought in during the winter and stored 
in the river towns, awaiting the opening 
ol navigation. This line will also carry 
at better rates, because it will not be 
controlled by an extortionate monopoly, 
but by the merchants of St. Louis, who 
will accommodate Minnesota for t'oe sake 
of g-'tting our trade. 

Our people are not beggars in this 
matter. In our weakness we cnj^ured 
what could not be cured, now we are 
growing stronger and consequenty feci 
more in»lcpendcnt. 

We are not bound to earr) our wheat 
to Chicago and pay o" cents per bushel 
lor the privilege, lor St. Louis will carry 
it for 2d cents per bushel. With a crop 
of from 7,t.tOO,UW to lO,OOtJ,Ui.>0 bushels 
ol gram, it is uot to be aupposed that we 
wdl give one-third of the crop to get the 
rest exported to Chicago or Milwaukee. 
TLcsc two cities can do much to help «>. 
They must help us now, or the wheat ol 
MinnCoOta will find its way to the sea- 
board by the way of St. Louis, and the 
merchants of St. Louis will till cur stores 
with their goods.

Now it is a matter clnotorlct. tbit the 
combination of the pa.kct coiipany, ol 
which Capt. lUvidson is Presi Icat. acd 
the La Crosse raUroad company has cre- 
ated a monopoly of the freigh' buiiness. 
that produces to tb^m an immeiee protU, 
and works to the producers ol the com- 
modities cjrried, a great hardship. 

The time has been \7hcn wheat coulJ 
be carried to the market for twelve cts.

iii'^ exorbitant rates ol Ireight on the va- 
rious lines leading into Iowa and Minne- 
sota, lor the past two or three months, 
they have driven the great bulk ol the 
produce of those States to seek a market 
down the Mississippi River. Remon- 
strance alter remonstrance baa been for- 
warded to the Directors of our radroads 
wiihoit ttfcct. Blinded by excessive 
dividend;), they have stubbornly refused 
to ^'ee that the course they are pursuing 
is not only fatal to the interests of Chi- 
cago and the Northwmt. but suicidal to 
themselves. 

This mania (or speculation in stocks is 
the ban-j ol our eniirc railroad system. 
Flushed with the monopoly ol the carry- 
ing trade lor four years past, the various 
companies have become oppressive aud 
insolent. The merchants and produdV 
dealers along tho lines leading westward 
from Chicago h.ivo hoped against hop<" 
for a cb.nge in the management, so that 
some reform might be clb-ct^d When 
the Iriight taritfs wep- do'tblcd they pro- 
teittd in vain. I'hi y h.;d lo submit 
meekly and sutler, for it th>'y boldly de- 
m.anded thtir rights, they were punished 
by the raiirovl oliicials rclujiog them ac- 
commodations iicccs-ary to tarry on their

Oar rivers are opun for the free com- 1

Mississippi, which is claimed to be owned 
by the Commodore and My Lord Wel- 
lington, but St. Lauis don't believe they 
have these patents on record, and will 
contest that cla:m. St. Louis finished last 
fall one of tbe largcit elevators in the 
west, where they can receive and dis- 
charge filty thousand bushtls per hour. 
They have two daily lines ot steamers 
to New Orleans, prepared to tow barges 
and tarry wheat She has organized a 
daily line ol large ocean steamers be- 
tween New Orleans and New York for 
ihe purpoic.ol shippinq wheat and ilour. 
You at once will se« when we have our 
prodace al New Orleans, wc have the 
world for our market, the same as at 
New York. They aie also organizing 
another line ol steamboats I'romSt. Louis 
to St. Paul, called the Merchant's line, 
with seven large and magnificent passen- 
uCDgcr ataemers and bevea steainboats 
for towing barges. Then there is the 
Northern line that will be a daily to St. 
Paul, jet this is not enough to do the im- 
mense business ol the Northwest. I 
mast frankly tay, 1 fear the greatest ene- 
my that St. Louis will have ia the Nor- 
theriilinc. They having tastedthe sweets 
ot the monopoly with the Commodore 
and My Lo^ l and may be tamptcl. But 
I hope no'.. 

Let us sec what St. Louis has been 
doir,i» in Hastings alone, those operating 
in tb*t trade keepinj: very fjuiet. They 
have bought and shipped .nnre harvest 
one liundiei! .mil forty fhounand bushels 
of wbtiit, rtaBztng ten cents per bushel 
more than Ujosc fha» .'^hipp d to Chicago 



oa the ursi named prue, but 
certainly no reason for such ai< advance. 
Wheat might, wc have no doubt, now be 
conveyed to market with a good profit to 
the carriers for le«;,< than tw! nty cents 
per bushel . and if that ia a reast DftOle esti- 
mate, any one who knows tb i immenEQ 
quantities of wheit curried by ihceo com- 
pjnies during the scaocn, can : oadily sco 
that there must be iumense foitunes iri.t'Je 
out ol the overplus, over and beyond 
what would be a rcj-'on^ '•: c! urge 

If wo arc not misinlornied, t) 'i arracgc- 
meat between those compjin;e3 i:, that, 
the radroad cdhipany will not carry 
freight brought to them by ai other line 
of boats, or by another boat, • s cheap as 
they wdl freight brought by lb ! DaviJson 
line. Kvery class ot intcrcbt in Minnc- 
SDta is made to contribute it the mam- 
moth fortunes being made by these mo- 
nopolists. But of all that sutler, the for- 
mer suffers most severely. 

It is urged that iua.«much as flic legisla- 
ture of the State of Wiiconsi i had con- 
trol ol that road to a ccifaia t xtent, and 
have a right to enact that it shall make 
no distinction between its cust miers, that 
our legislaturo should rcspeulli'dyjisk the 
legislature of >\'iscoiisin to la ic the mat-

wc do not ask our legislator? to <lo that. 
Oar own conviction is thai wc i^hould

Tho La Crosse railroad ia nut a natural 
highway, it is only an invention 
of human skill, but by no mua is no broad 
or wide, or long as the Missi $ippi river, 
nor is it so deep, nor so well adapted to 
the carrying trade. Upon i lie banks of 
that great river, tlitrc aru ciiiesas large 
and as rich as Milwiiukne <r Chicago, 
and in some at least of thosi cities their 
merchants are ready, willing :.nd anxious 
to buy our produce, as are th-! mcr ihants 
of either ol the two first namc.i cities, and 
by means of the tiioroughfaie which na- 
ture has made, wu can get t ur produce 
to just a^ ready market, at i n:nch less 
cost than by railroad. 

There, too, at tilhtr the ■ ties of St. 
Louis or New Orleans, wc ta i buy goods 
that we need, just as good a id just as 
cheap, as at Mdwauk-.e, Chi* ago or Mil-

Now wc icpeatthat wa do not care a

we lire left in u mor»' unpleasant condition 
tliau our former. Wo are at the mercy of 
those who combined to prevent iis from 
getting laud enough to lay our fathers' 
bones upon. We have propeaty in horses, 
cattle, eiininjj^s, and articles of furniture; 
but wo are landless ami homeless. [Going] 
from the houses we have lived in the past, 
wo can only do one of throe things; step 
iuto tho public road, on the sea, or remain 
on the lands, working as in former times, 
and subject to their will a.s then. 

'You ask me to forgive the land-owuers 
of our island. You only lost yonr right 
ami in war, iiud might forgive them. The 
man who tied me to a ti-oe, and giive .me 
thirty-nine laches, and who stripped and 
flogged my mother aud sister, and who 
willnot let me stay in his empty hut, ex- 
cept I will do his planting, and tie satisfied 
with his pritv, and who combines with oth- 
ers to keep away land from me, well know- 
ing 1 would not' have ainihing to do with 
hiin if I had laud of my owu, that man 1 
cannot well forgive. Does it look as 
if he had forgiven me, seeing how he tries 
to keep me in a condition of helplessness?

In order to find a comfortable stopping 
place for tho family, he concluded to 
start for another stockade about ten 
miles distent. They made their way 
through tho blinding enow, untd tbey 
reached the sjiot, and found this stockade 
burned. 

They were thus left without any thel- 
ter beyond that afforded by the ambu- 
lance, and the storm l>*r.nn-.n .so violent 
that they could not proceed farther. 
They remained in the ambulance through 
the severe storm, without food or suffi- 
cient covering to protect themselves from 
the merciless blasts. When the storm 
had partially abated, they found their way 
to a settlement, where assistani e. was re- 
ceived and remedies used. 

The children escaped without si rious 
injury, but Mrs. B. had both hands fro- 
zen, one ol them severely, d'he driver 
was so badly frozen that he willprobably 
be a cripple lor life. 

Fou Ii>.viio.— We are informed that a 
proposition has been made to our busi- 
ness men for e^juipping Tom Hclmcs' 
Idaho expedition next spring, at this 
point ; provided, however, a certain sum 
18 raised. On Mondav Col. Pratt and 
others ol our citizens, instituted meas- 
ures for ascertaining whether or not tho 
proposition could be accepted, and we 
are assured that tho required amount, will 
be obtained witnout any dithculty what- 
ever. The train will number about 5lK) 
wagons, and will bo under the veteran 
pioneer, "old Tom Holmes." Mr. H. 
has made several trips to the gold mines, 
I and will cartainly pilot his train through 
over good roads and in perfect security.

From the Rochester Po!<t. 

Whe.vt Buying. — Persons who have 
never visited this city during the exci- 
ting season of wheat buying, or witness- 
ed the modus operandi of the traffic, can- 
not readily comprehend how a business 
of 10,000 bushels a day can be curried 
on in the streets, entirely outside and in- 
dependent of the thirty or forty regular 
business bouses and sales-rooms here. 
Yet such is and has been the ca6C during 
the entire fall, and up to the close of nav- 
igation, but a few days ago. The wheat 
trade is carried on somewhat alter this 
style. 

Wheat buyers, who for the most part 
are but agents and employees to heavy 
operators in Chicago and Milwaukee, 
stand upon every bridge and main 
road leading into town, from early 
morn tdl evening, watching lor the ap- 

E roach of the loaded teams and 
ail them as soon as within speaking 
distance with : " Wbat'll you Uke for 
your load of wheat?" " I don't know 
what'll you give?" "A dollar six. 
That's the highest price— here's my 
ticket." " W^dl, you can have it if that's 
the highest price," (taking the ticket.) 
All this is without slopping his team or 
even slackening pace ; for a long line of 
loaded tean^rowded closely behind and 
a temporarj^top or halt would throw 
No. 1 in tbe rear, and perchance place 
him about lo or lo at tho elevator, at a 
loss of two hours or more time. 

The "ticket" handed to the teamster 
states tbe price agreed on, the name of 
the buyer and the place where payable. 
It also contains tbe conditions if No. 
1 wheat ; this is to be dctermed by the 
inspector at tho elevator, and il No. 2, 
will be graded down several cents per 
bushel in price. It is almost needless, 
however, to say that nearly all well 
cleaned wheat passes as No. 1, this sea- 
son. 

On goes the loaded team to the eleva- 
tor at tho railroad depot, the inspector 
grades, it and weighing the entire load at 
one weight, marks the weight aud (luality 
upon the ticket and returns it to the 
teamster again. The unloaded team 
m-'ves on ; another takes its place, and 
so on for eighteen hours of tbe twentj- 
four in each day— a living mass o I agri- 
cultural humanity. The presentation of 
the ticket at the cashier's desk, and the 
prompt payment of the greenbacks there- 
for, complete the sin ;le transaction of 
selling a load of wheat.

l¥ou«lerriil Domestic Tragedy. 

The following extraordinary domestic 
tradition is extracteti from a new book, 
entitled "Napoleon tl>e Third and his 
Court," which i? raucb talkcJ of in Eu- 
rope; 

The Dukn of Alba, the brcthcr-in-law 
of JTapoleon the Third, is a nbort, little 
man, who has something i;y about bis 
wbolti manner. Small and wcuk. his faci) 
di'pLays an alabastt,r hue, wbich gives 
him a ghost- like aspect. In Spain the 
story is current that the Duke was buried 
before he was bcrn. When his mother 
was encienU with him ahe was so desper- 
ately ill that all attempts to restore bt.r 
remained fruitless 

The Duchess died far away from Mad- 
rid, at a chateau which had always bsen 
her favorite residence. She was buried 
n the family vatilt ; and, as it is the cus 
torn of the Spautjh nobilitv:, several valu- 
ables, among others her rings, wei j put 
into bir cofEi>. The '.rdasures which had 
been left to oblivioi. with tbu Duchess 
aroused th»j cupidity cl some ruffians ; 
they broke into the vault the day follow- 
ing the funeral, robbed the dead wom:tn, 
i^A would not leave the coffin until they 
bad plucked a flashing diamond from tha 
liorer ot the corpse. Tb« diaaiond was 
on th<^ litMo finger and it tvould not come 

off. 

Tuts gave the body-snatchers the truly 
cannibal idea of cutting the finger. The 
paiu aroused the apparently dead woman ; 
she came to her sensec, sat up in hereof- 
tin. :ind, by her unexpected wakeninp, 
put the robbers to flight. When they de- 
parted they forgot to close the vault. The 
DucchsH found 8uffici«Dt strength to quit 
her coffin and return to tie chateau, 
where sho was at tirpt taken for a ghost, 
and a priest was callfd to exorcise it, but 
as be was unable to banish the spectre, 
the people in the chateau gradually began 
to believe in her corporalexistcncc. The 
Dacbe^<i8 recovered and gave birth to a 
boy, whi has never lost the deathly pal- 
lor wbich he brought into the world with 

him.

Scandal in IllBta Life. 

A London correspondent of the 
ronto Globe writes : 

A very disgraceful divorce case was 
tried the other day, the co-respondent 
being the Duke of St. Albans. A weak- 
headed itidividual named Broadtvood mar- 
ried a woman named Mary Short, who at 
the time was of bad character. After 
some tmio she induced him to famish her 
a house ne,»r Park I.aue, to give her an 
income and there to live apart from him. 
At this home sh'' received tlie^ visits of 
the Dakc ol Si Albans, and two other 
gentlemen, who, though their iiame^ arc 
not nil iitioned, arc. 1 believe, oftiecrs la 
t'.c roval household As to the aJultcry 
committed by Mrs. Brcadvrood there 
can be no manner of doubt ;'bTit if was 
shown that Mr. Broadwood is now living 
with another loose woman, and that he 
had actually brought her down to the 
court that day. Mr. Justice Wilde dis- 
missed tho case with costs against the 
wife. The Duke of St. Albans is a mem- 
ber of the household of the prince of 
Walea, and has for years been the chosen 
companion of His Royal Highness. 
Hence the affair creates no little scandal.

of educating children for certain stations 
in life, hut he believed in educating them, 
and leaving it to Providence and them- 
selves to say what posiiiou or ttation they 
should occupy He eulogised our :-ystem 
of common 5-ehools and said that he con- 
sid'^re<l it the higbe.st evidence of our fn-

would come when the system of common 
achooN which they had iu England, and 
which i.^ now but fragmentary, would l»e 
made wLoIi- and complete, like ours. 
They had no uncultivated lands there to 
give as au endowment fund for this pur- 
pose like i\e har«\ but he believed the 
time would come when the people would 
give of their lueaus nu amount sufficient to 
establish a system of common schools that 
would do houor to au eulightened and 
litioral miuded people. 

Remarks were made by \lv\. Mi. Cobb, 
and Inspector Paine, after which th<' exer- 
cises closed. The schools will be clos<"d

A Crazv Tkutox.— The. necks of a 
couple of oxen became entangled in their 
yoke about noon to-day in the «()uarc. There- 
upon a genial son of "Sweet Ireland" volun- 
teered his free services, and wa? releasing the 
choking beasts, when the German who 
"gced and hawed" the team, stepped up and 
dealt the generous Fenian a staggering blow 
on the "sconse," which well-nigh sent him to 
quarters ; whereupon the Emerald gem slow- 
ly removed his mittens, and was about to 
shatter the ma/.zard ot the Teuton, and go 
stop the operation of his cheese trap, when 
the fact of his insanity became so visiblo by 
the Teutonic looks and actions, that the up- 
lifted mauler was lowered and returned to its 
woolen covering. .\nd, sure enough, the 
German teas cra«y as a coot, and for n few 
minutes made the whdle square resound with 
oaths in his native tongue and the wliiNi'lng 
of his revolving whip lash.

tion on Mr. Pense's lot st the end of Centre 
Block, tccling agrievod that such a man trap 
should lie lett unguarded, has almost de- 
termined to bring suit for damages against 
Mr. P., who sturdily claims that he is not 
liatile, and will resist the suits from " term to 
term " But 8omet)ody must have bad an idea 
a while ago that somebody tea* liable, for 
somc!?ody has put a fence at both ends of the 
excavation. Under the claim of non-liability 
what a waste of money that fence was. 

Is IT ANY WoNDSR? — Go down to 
the engines on the rail roads on cither 
side of the river, and see ths wretch- 
ed contrivances they have for snow 
idowB they use for cleaning out a snow block- 
aded track. They coalil manage a mere sprit 
of a snow storm, and so could a hoy with a 
donkey cart. The sides ot these plows, or 

snow cutters, are two feet high, and secured 
to the cow-catcher by rods, and the whole 
structure is open top and bottom, so that in 
driving through a deep drift tho snow would 
quickly clog tho engine by coming over the 
top ot the plow. What is wanted is a snow 
plow with a plow G-or 7 feet high and 20 feet 
long, decked over, and nmning on wheels; 
then a drift, which uo.v staggers and stops 
tho train, would be catz like the gauze veil ol 
tho greot Paladin, and the fleecy particles 
hurled in clouds ou either side. We have 
seen these huge breaks try sremendous drifts 
in deep cuttings, and if they foiled the iir.st 
time to go entirely through, they accomplish- 



we known such extensive and elaborate prep- 
arations for an occasion of this kind. Every- 
body who delights in Terpsichorean luxuries, 
will be present, and the indications aro now 
that it will be the largest party ever held in 
this city. The best music in the country has 
been secured, and it is hardly necessary to 
assure our friends that no expense or labor 
wili be spared on the part of the proprietor of 
the Sawyer House, in furnishing: to his guests 
a supper worthy of the occasion, and one 
which shall do credit to the house. We h»pe 
to sec our St. Paul friends over in full force.

Telegraph Poles. — Messiis. More & 
Stoddard of this place, have contracted with 
tho Northwestern Telegraph Company to de 
liver 5,000 Cedar telegraph poles at Prescott 
early next Spring, for the sum of 05 000. An-, 
other lumber Arm, Messrs. Ward & Matthews 
have also contracted with the same company 
to deliver 4,000 poles at this point at the same 
price. • 

Railroad Meeiing.— At tht Rai!- 
road meeting held on Thursday evening at 
Treasurer Lull's office, Mr. Stickney reported 
that he had consulted with a number of the 

prominent railroad men of St. Paul, in regard 
t£ the building of a road to unite that place 
with ours. He says that they manifest but 
little inclination or disposition to act up to 
the terms of their contract in relation to build- 
ing th3 road, confidently relying upon an 
act of the coming IJegislatnre to favor 
the company with another extension. 
Mr. Stickney was chosen by the meeting to 
visit the river towns of Southern Minnesota to 
ascertain what proportion of the lumber goes 
to the inland towns — which is mostly trans- 
ported on wagons — comes from Stillwater. 
The cost of taking lumber with teams forty, 
fifty and sixty miles is so great, compared 
with the expense of transporting it by rail 
without change of cars, as ihay will soon he 
able to do from St. Anthony and we could 
do with a railrcad to St. Paul— that is clearly 
to the interest of the people of Southern Min- 
ncsoci that this road should tm immediately 
const. ucied. As it is, they are at the mercy 
of the St. Anthony section, and are obliged to 
p.iy an exorbitant price for their lal)or. Giv- 
ing Stillwater an opportunity to compete with 
St. Anthouy in supplying Southern Minnesota 
with lumber, would have the immediate tend- 
ency to bring tho price of lumber to living 
rates. 

To Tax Payers.— The County Treas- 
urer, Mr. Lull, gives notice that he is ready 
and wilUpg to receive the taxes due from the 

Eroperty owners of Washing county. And 
e further avers that if the tax on personal 
property is not handed in on or before the 
Brst of JFebruary next, that he will proceed to 
distrain, and all that sort of thing, besides 
levying an additional five per centum. All 
who are so unfortunate as to own anythmg 
would do well to keep on good terms with 
Mr. Lull, which can easily be done, as he is of 
a remarkable placid nature, by prompt pay- 
ment of their taxes.

adotption o( 'he amendment to the 
Constitution, abolishing slavarT thrcngh- 
ont the United States. 



€OXSTITFTIO!f 41. AIE.ID 

As a necessar* corrollarv from the 
views we expressed yesterday in regard 
te tbe ntrt'ssity ot secunog civil and po- 
htiOAl. as well as ptrsonal, or rather 
physical liberty, by further •amendmcDts 
of the C-'nsJjtution. it follows that the 
biUt iotrodnced by Messrs. W ilsor and 
Snamcr in 'Jie 3enate. -od b; others in 
the tiousc. locking to tho imposition oi 
civ;l and poli'icil eqxiality upon the 
Scathera Stu'.es by Congressional i;n- 
actmenti are totally iradeqaate to reach 
*^i en'^ proposed 

The madeqijacy is not in the letter of 
th^se measures -for they cover the whole 
ground — but in the means by which i* is 
propc!»ed to lirry them iuto effect. A 
law cf Congress is of no avail to "ontrol 
tholegiblat'onof the rebel !?tatesi. e.xoept 
so long as they are ruled by militHry 
power — !hat is. so long; a^ their govjru- 
ments are aduiintstcred by the 'jentral au- 
tbority at Washington — a dangerous, 
4esrotK. and anti-republican exercise ol 
the war power, if continued beyond the 
requirements oi public safety. The mo- 
ment, they are released from this control, 
and resumt; fbeir powers as States, a!l 
congressional kgi*la'ioti '.jpon 'h?se sub- 
jects c»*y be at onct disregarded by their 
Staia Legi.olatar«* :ind Conventions, who 
may ns-enict what laws th?y choos;;, not 
prohibited by the national Constitution. 
The only security for the equal civil rights 
of American citizens lies, then, in an 
amendment c( the Constitution; and if

if the other two can b" carried into effect ; 
but they can only be carried into perma- 
nent effect by the supreme authority ol 
the Constitution. There are practical 
dificultiea^Q the way of making educa- 
tion a subject cf national supervision, 
even if it were otherwise desirable. We 
see that Mr. Donnelly has introduced a 
resolution upon this subject in the House, 
io which the duty of providing for the 
education of the people of thp several 
States is devolved upon a Bureau of the 
General Govemmenl only when by the 
neglect of the States it falls below a cer- 
tain stacdard The machinery of common 
tchcols must n-jcfssarily be left to the 
States, and it would be physically impos- 
sible for a Bureau at Washington to man- 
age a matter so purely local in its details^ 
even if there were not more vital objec- 
tions to the centralizatioTi of rowi>r in 
the Gcn«ral Government. 

The utmost that the nadui % power can 
do is to require, according to 'h«* terms 
of Sumner's resolution, the' »a ^ State 
provid"? m its f>rganic law for a ' <tem of 
edncation for the equal benel ■ I all. 
This requirement fould only b v •• le ef-

South , His opportunities o observation 
were limited, he says, to a day in Raleigh, 
North Carolina, two days ir Charleston, 
South Carolina, and one da^ each in Sa-

it indispensable to the satety of both 
whites and blacks, that a nilitary forco

is universal acijuiescence in :he authority 
of the General Government , on the part 
ot ill the thinking men of the country.

vTrgInIANS WANT A 
FOREIGN WAR. 



Debate ill the Senate. 

The follcwinf Is the conclus on of Iburs- 
d.-.y's proceedings In ihe Senate, which the tel- 
egraph failed to furnish 

After the reading of Gen. Orarfsreport, Mr. 
Sumner aaked that the report o' Gen. Scbnri 
should be read. 

Several Senators objected oa the ground 
that Scburz's report was too Ion t. 

Mr. ^amner asked thut they shonld begin 
reading as it was a verv important docnment. 
He instanced the tact that the full report of 
afr.iirs in Kans.is was read in th'< Senate, and 
thai the pre; tnt report was mt ch more im- 
portant than ttiat. He said tie messatreof 
President Johnson was like the "rhite wa-shing 
messaire of Frankiia Tearce of vaubas atfaijs. 

Mr. Johnson denied that tb to was any 
white washing in this report, rbich wa^ a 
plain statement uf race^. 

The Clerk commenced to lead General 
Schnrz report when Mr. Shenran raoved to 
print it. 

Mr. Sumner argued that u ibould be read, 
declaring that General Schurz was sent on a 
mission by the President, and made a visit 
occupying much tune and exter ding through 
different ?uite« and had given a truthful re 
port. 

Mr, Sherman aJmifted th«rei ort might be 
able and interesting, but would rsther read it 
than hear it read, 

Mr. Doolittle though: Mr. Samuer ought to 
qualify the ttatement that the message was 
intended to whitewash affairs tluit are worse 
than those ot' Kansas m the dai i uf Frank- 
lin Fierce. He thought that' Mr. Snmner 
cOnld not mean that afTah's in tie South were 
wor!>c than those of Kansas. 

Mr. Sumner said he had notbi i{; to qa.-tlity, 
and reiterated his statement. 

Mr. Dixon denied there wa.i tny attemn m 
the me$sa5<* to whitewash the condition of 
affairs in the south, and bdid I e could not 
suffer such a charge to gt> befot* the ccnntry 
without protest. 

Mr. Doolittle baid he was paired tu 5cc the 
Senator from Mas^iachnsettsmate a charge ot 
falsehood in saying the Message was an at- 
tempt to whitewash aiTairs in tie South. He 
said it was a direct uttack upon the integrity 
of the President, which he thot ght no sena- 
tor could doubt, no matter how much he dif- 
fered I'rom him in opinion. 

Mr. tinmwer denied any inteu Ion of cbarg- 
ingtbe President with Valsehtod. He said 
there was no question before the House when 
be made the remark, ::nd that he statement 
about the whitewashing reterre 1 only to the 
document which was read and i ot to the pol- 
icy of the President. He denie 1 that he had 
ever in public or private 'luesti. ned the hon- 
esty or patriotism of the Preside nt. 

Mr. Dixon accepted Mr. Suriner's retrac- 
tion. 

Mr. Trumball ru»e to ask tL> t this debate 
shontd clois, as the ronlroversj was not for 
the^poblic interest. 

It was then voted that the r^iport of Occ 
Schurz should be printed wltJ other docu- 
ments. 

A resolution was then adopted calling fot 
the report of Gen. Howard on he condition 
cf the freedmon. 

The lollowing reso'.ntlon wr» oflfered by 
Mr. Spragne, and agreed to . 

R'l^htd, iho House concarr ug, Tnat th<i 
Committea oa Manufa^cures of he respe-tlve 
Houses inquire li tax of internal revenue act 
upon products ot domestic qaanufacteres 
is greater than the dsty preiaium oa gold 
and cxpansejof exchange and ransportaiion 
upon smilar products imported, and if there- 
by foreign prodncis were ent; red for con- 
somptioa upon more iavorabh terms than 
domestic products, to import bv bill or other- 
wise. 

The Senate then went into txecntive ses-

Th«3 English journals are almost unani-

under the orders of Gov. Eyre. The

eappress'-? the fearful details of this

John Bright the leader of the liberal par-

Trum the Austin (Mower Co.; B) gDter, Dec. 21 
On Monday evening of this n eek oar ears 
were stunned an < onr hearts mitde sick, with 
the news ot a cold-blooded mu der resulting 
in instant death. The details gi ven us, as fol- 
lows, by one of the jutymen at :he coroner's 
inquest, are about as near the • orrect Tersi3n 
as may be : 

Patrick McEntee, the murder ir, is about 23 
years of age, and lightly built. He was work- 
ing with a threiihiag machine st Mr. J. S. 
Decker's, about two miles e:ist ot town. 
About 4 o'clock in the afiemoci of Monday, 
afaw unpleasant and irritable words, passed 
between McEatee and Mr. 1. U . Fadden, the 
murdered man, in regard to ■pn ising bundles. 
This was thought nothing of by the hands as 
words as severe pass between in livduals thou- 
feands of timea, causing no aftst -thought to ei- 
ther party. Mr. Padden is an ( Id settler, and 
had just returned from a thres years' cam- 
paign in the army. 

It is said bythe neigh bors/th>t he wa!> nat- 
urallv very passionate, and tbi^ passion caus- 
ed him often to abuse his v ife ; but they 
could tee nothing In his langua^ e which would 
be regarded as sufficient prov >caiion for so 
foul an act. About an hour late * Mr. McEntee 
said his feet were damn, and m ide this an ex- 
cuse to go to his boarding hou< v about half a 
mile distant, where it appears he borrowed a 
revolver of a young man boarc ing there from 
Frankford. He came back o i the run. It 
being at this juncture about d isk, and a belt 
on the machine having brok in, it was '''in- 
cluded best to stop work for tl e day. 

Mr. Padden was staudiug leaniog on his 
fork, when McEntee walked i p to him, and 
said. " I am ready to fight yoti now," and or- 
dered him to put down his fok and takeoff 
his coat. This Padden reinsed ;o do. McEntee 
then steppea back a few feet, md took from 
bis overcoat the revolver, and pointing it at 
bis breast, shot him dead thrc igh the heart '. 
The murderer coolly pat thi revolver into 
his overcoat pocket, put on the coat and walk- 
ed deliberately away. After a few minutes 
he came tack, and one of the men came ou*. 
of the house and asked him in o supper. He 
said he did not wish any suppi r but told him 
tu ask some ot the men to lomeout. The 
murderer's father come oat, a id they walked 
to the barn together, when he jumped on a 
horse and rode away. A 11 th is was accom- 
plished without any effort being made by the 
threshers— some six or seven btout meo— to 
capture him, or even notice « hich direction 
the scoundrel took tu escape. 

A Coroner's inquest waa he d in about an 
hour after the transac'ion, am a verdict ren- 
dered in accordance with the i acts. 

Officers have been dlspatche i in all direc- 
tions atter the murder, but d i to this time 
(Wednesday afternoon) no clue has been ob- 
tained aa to his whereabouts It is a clear 
case of wilful, malicious mui der, and if the 
otiender Is caught, will und Jubtedly suffer 
capital punibbment.

at once to the headquarters of the J.iarc/. gov-

go, thus making' an ac'ive demonstration to 
Maxituilllan of the policy which tho govern*'

given offence to the French Minister. 

The Hepubhcar. issued an extra last evening 
on Mexican atTsirs. Its information purports 
to come from London, and it declares that a 
secret understanding between Napoleon and 
Maximilian allows the former to withdraw.- 
the French troops from Mexico whenever 
Maximilian's payments should become two 
months in arrears. 

Senor Gracia, the Feruvmn Minister to this

The State Departmeut is in receipt of dis-

The liiiui' Richmond correspondent says, 
nctwiihstandlng the distressed condition ot 
this section, financially, there is a generally 
expressed wish that our Government should 
become embroiled in a foreign war. This 
Snds its origin with a certain class, in the 
heartfelt longing to wipe out the disgrace now 
attached to laom on account of the reliellion. 

There are men hare who held high offices 
ia the Confederate army, who would wilHngly 
enlist as privates under the old f.ag in case of 
a war with Frauce or England While hesi- 
tating to acknowledge it publicly, a majority 
of the people of the South feel the disgrace 
which ata(.hes itself to the name cf a rebel, 
so bituriy regret their folly in winning foi 
themselves that of traitor, that, to free tnem- 
.-elves from this Imputation, and to put them- 
selves agaiu on a level with their northern 
brethren, they arc willing to do almo?t any-

Gov. Perry has returned to his home; your 
dispatch ha.s been forwarded to him by mail. 
It will be gratifying to the people of South 
Carolina that her government has been en- 
trusted to officers of their own bclection. In 
their name I thank you for the honor and co- 
operation ot the government of the United 
States when found necessary in eflecting the 
early restoration and permanent prosperity of 
the sute. 

You may be assured of my unalterable pur- 
pose to aid in upholding the supremacy of the 
iJnitcd States, and in advancing the honor, 
interests and prosperity of a common countrr. 
Signed. JAMES L. ORR, '

WHY 

SHOULD 

YOU 

Insure Tour Life? 



Becauae, flrat: It ia no more your moral 
duty to proTlde the daily bread for your family 
while yeu Uve than It Is to provide against their 
being left penniless In the event of yonr death. 
If yon are not rich it Is all the more your duty to 
lay adde a small amount each year In life In- 
•arance; and if you are rich, yon certainly kavi 
HO exeuse/or not providing while you may, for 
those dependent upon you, by obtaining a fnlly 
paid up Policy on yonr life. Tour riches may taks 
wlngB and then yoa will regret not having made 
this investment. 

Beeaoae, seoond : Tho tf utual Life Insurance 
Comnasy of Now York, the oldest, safest and 
best coapaay in the United States, with Thirteen 
Wlllon Five Hnndred Thousand Dollars cash 
assets, oifers you greater indacementa for in- 
snring your Life than any other company in this 
country can possibly do. 

Call, therefore, npon the agent, who will 
oheerfnlly give you any information you may 
desire In regard to Life Insurance.

His ExctlUncu, Andr«» Johnson, Pi\'tuient 
of the Uniu'd States: 

biR ;— 1 reply to your note of the ItJi x inst., 
requesting a report Irom me, givinff si ch in- 
formation .-is I mav I'B possessed of, i ominj 
within the scope ot the inquiries made l>v the 
Senate of tbe i nited Sates in their resolu- 
tion of the 12ih inst., I have the ht nor w^ 
subniit tho followin>r, with your apprui al, and 
also that of the hoaorat}le becretary o; War 
IJIci'i Washington city on the '27th of last 
month, for tbe "purpc^e of making a tonr of 
inspection thronjrh bome ot the Siuthem 
States lately in rebellion, and to so what 
changes were necessary m ihu dispo* tion oi 
the militarv forces of the country ; ho v these 
forces could be reduced, and expeni yj cur- 
tailed, &c., and to le.nru, as far as possible, 
the feelings and intentions of the pople of 
these States towsrd the gcner.il govemmcnt. 
The Stp.te of Virginia being so acce; tible to 
Washington, and intLTination trom thiS quar- 
ter, therefore being readily obtained, 1 has- 
tened through the estate without coi versing 
or meeting with its citi.;cns. lu lialeigh. 
North Carolina, I spent one dav, in ("harles- 
ton, South Carolina, two da,» s, and in Seven- 
nah and Augusta, Georgia, each c le day. 
Both in traveling and whilst stoppin; I saw 
much and conversed freely with the citizens 
of those States as wcil as with the oi fleers ot 
the army- who have been stationed among 
them. The following are tho con lusions 
come to by me: 1 am satisacd that tbe mass 
of thinking men of the South accept the pres- 
ent situation of affiiirs in good faith. 

The questions which have heretofoic divid- 
ed the sentiments of tho two secti->OE slavery 
and State rights or the right ot a btiite to se- 
cede frcia the Uuion, they regard b.- having 
l)een settled torcvcr by the highest tribunal 
that man can resort to. 

1 was pleased to learn from the leading men 
whom 1 met, th;it they not only accepted the 
decision arrived at as'tinal, but now that the 

IBinokc of battle has elcired away, yad tituc 



An old man alts by an open door. 
And smiles as the sweet sonth wmd 

Drifts rose leaves about him upon the flco 
And pbiys with his locks were thnraed 

Bv time in the many days gone by 
Scekmg the beautiful shore. 

He smiles anddreams, and at length he !>I«ep<«, 
And his dreams, unbroken, grow bright 

With a radiance shot from cerulean deep"! 
Unknown to our waking sight . 

From a land whose sorrows arc dearer than 
.loy,— 
Whose darkness is fairer than light! 

He wanders' the Past ; and his boyiib feet 

.\re pressing the flower-gemmed floor 
Ol the lawn where his comrades were wont to 
meet 
In the beautiful days of yore, 
While his mother sits looking aud smiling tbe 
while, 
1 rom her chair at the open dtwr.

has l)cen given for tlic reflection ihat this 
decision has been a fortunate one for the 
whole country, they receiving tho hie bene- 
fits from it with those who opposed hem in 
the council. Four years of war, dun ig which 
law was executed only at the point ot the bay- 
cnet throughout the States in tcbell on, have 
left the people possibly in a conditit n not to 
yield that ready obedience tj civil luthority 
which the American people have ( enerally 
been in the habit of yieldinj:. 

This would render the presence of small 
garrisons throughout those States i ecessary 
until such time as labor returns to i s proper 
channels, and civil authority is fully . stabiish- 
ed. 1 did not meet .-my one'there, tit her hold- 
ing places under the government o citizens 
of the Southern States, who though! it practi- 
cable to withdraw the military from he South 
at present. The white and the blacl mutual 
Iv require protection of the general govcrn- 
inent. There is such universal acq liescence 
in the authority of the general go ernment 
throaghout the portions of the country visited 
by me that the mere pretence oi a military 
force, w ithout regard to number, is snfRcient 
to naintaia order. The good of the country 
requires that force he kept in th* interior

It is not the thinkiug men who vould do

the ignorant in some places might, and the

My observations lead me to the < onclu^ion 
that the citizens of the Southern itates are

tection Irom the government sui It Ui they 
think is required bv tho sovernnv iit and a 
not humiliating to them as citizenf and that 
If such a course was pointed out ' lev w ouM 
pursue it in good faith. It is tc bx rcgreited 
that there could not be a great co-n ingting at 
this time between tho citl/.ens of t! e two sec- 
tions, and panicularly of those enU usted with 
the law-maiing power. 

I did not give iho operations oi thofreed- 
men's bureau that attention I w luld ha-a 
done if more time had been at my disposal. 
Conversations, however, on the subject, with 
officers connected with the bureau, led me to 
think that in some of tho States its atfairs 
have not been conducted with good judgment 
or economv, aud that the belief wii leiy spread 
among the" freedmen of the Soutt ern States, 
that the lands of their former owi ers will at 
least in part be divided among then , htfs come 
to tho agents of this bureau. Th s belief is 
seriously iutcrforing with the wil ingness of 
the freedmen to make conlracli fc r the com 
ing year. 

In some form the frcedmcn's I ircau b an 
absolute necessity until civil lai/ is eiiab- 
lishcd and enforced, securing to th : freedmen 
their rights and full protection, vt present, 
however, it ia independent of the iiUitary e:.- 
Ublishment ot ths country, and eems to be 
operated bythedieffrent agents of ho bureau, 
according to their individual notiots. Every- 
where General Howard, the able ucadof the 
bureau, made friends by hU iust i nd fair in- 
structions and advice he g.r.u. B it the com- 
pl.iint in South Carolina was that ^ hen he left 
things went oa as betorc. Muny, :crb.ipsthc 
maiority, of the agents ol the frc- imcjn's bu 
reau, advise the Ircedmca that l'' tlieir own 
industry they must live. To thi i end they 
endeavor to secure employment for them, and 
to sea that both contracting partes comply 
with their engagements. In jome cases, I am 
sorry to sav, the freedmen's miu 1 docs not 
seem to be disabused of the idea th. t the frecd- 
inau has the right to live, without 'are or pro- 
viiion for tbe future. Tho ctlect « f the belief 
in the division of lands is idlene.s • and accu- 
mulation in camps, towns and citi- s. In such 
cases, I ^ink it will bo found tht.t vice and 
disease will teud to the extcrmina ion or great 
destruction of the colored race. 

It cannot ba expected that tl e opinions 
held by men of the Sout|^ for y ars can be 
changed in a day, and therefore tl e freedmen 
require for a few years, not only aws to pro- 
tect them, but tho fostering care of those who 
will "ive them f:'.>od counsel, anion whom 
they" can rclvT The frecdmta's bureau 
heing separated from tho mil tary estab- 
lishment ot the country requires- all 
the expense of a separate c-gan ration. 
One does not neceasarily kno\' what the 
other IS doing, or whut order) they are 
actinc under. It seems to m* this could 
be corrected by requiring every of cer on dnty 
with troops in the gouthcm ^'tat ;s to act as 
an agent of the freedmen's burei u and then 
have aH orders from the head ot the bureau 
sent through the department c iminanders. 
ThH would create a respon-iibilitj that would 
create uniformity of action thrnughont the 
South, would ensure the orders »nd instruc- 
tions from the head of the burea a being car- 
ried out, and would relieve from i uty and pay 
a large number ot employees of the govern- 
ment. 

I have the honor to be, very •espectfully 
roar obedient servant,

JEFF. DAVIS 



Correspondence N, Y. Herald. 

FoKiRE.s.s Mo>ROB, Dcc. 13. — Thc 
President's Message, or the cAlm sober 
teachings of the waning year and falling 
leaves, and wilder wailinga ol the wind 
through thc bared bonghs inciting sub- 
dued reflection or prudential resolve to 
take Old Time by the forelock in the mat- 
ter while Time allowa himself to be thus 
dealt with, or some reason of most cogent 
nature, is now, as I am authoritatively in- 
formed, causing .JefT. Davis to turn bis 
attention more especially than at any 
time heretofore to thc concerns of his 
soul. His old clergyman of 8t. Paul's 
cburcb, in Richmond —the church be ait- 
tended during the war, and from which 
he made that marvellou.sly rapid exit on 
the last Sunday of his attendance there 
— has been allowed to spend a day with 
him. 

No criminal about to be led to the 
gallows can receive more sedulous atten- 
tion or probably wiser religious coun- 
iielling. The sacrament was administer- 
ed to him, and everything done that 
could be, both by his old religious teach- 
er ard adviser, through scriptural read- 
ing and prayer, to give him peace of 
mind and that cheerful content and resig- 
nation following the right kind ot teach- 
ing and faith. During bia imprisonment 
Mr. Davis' only religious attendant and 
adviser has been thc Post Chaplain, Rev. 
ftlr. Chivvis. a most amiable and excel- 
lent man and worthy and devout clergy- 
man. It was natural he should like to 
be attended by lus old pastor, and no 
one will be inclined, I am sure, to blame 
bim for asking thc privilege of his attend- 
ance upon him, or lind fault with the re- 
quest being complied with.

South Ctrolina Cor. Tribune. 

On the trip south, we made connections 
everywhere. This did not prevent us, 
however, from being dumped down at 
Florence, South Carolina, at six o'clock 
next morning. 

After supper I went to the office of the 
captain in command of the post. Two 
soldiers were sitting on the steps at tbe 
door. 

"Well, boys," I said, ' ho? are yon 
getting on ? What are you doing here ?" 

•' Oh, pretty well," said one of the sol- 
diers, " wev'c got nothing tc do here but 
attend to tbe niggers."' 

"What have you to do witK them ?" I 
asked. 

'•Well, yon know," he rejoined, "the 
nigger's got to hav; a master : and now 
his old master has no power, by G — d 
we teach him that he's got a master." 

1 bad a gray coat on ; did be take me 
for a rebel ? 1 wpuld see . so that, what- 
ever he evidence hv gave, might be en- 
tirely genuine. 

"Where are yo'J from, boys.-"'! askea 
them. 

"Twenty-ninth Maine," they said. 

"Pm from Massachusetts." 

We fraternized. 

"Weil now what's the trouble with thc 
negroes •" I resumed. 

"Well, d— n them," said the same sol- 
dier, "they won't work. Tbe planters 
come in every day or two and complain 
of them, and then we go out and attend 
to them." 

"Well, what do you do about it .'" 

"Oh!" he said, '"by God, we tie 'em 
!)]> by the thumbs, and make 'em mind !'* 

— This was the first intimation that I 
had that our white troops in South Caro- 
lina have been " overwhelmed" morally, 
end are now acting the part of Legrees 
to conciliate the red-handed traitors of 
that mfamons State. The full evidence, 
for one month, of this lamentable fact, 
you have already published.

K meetigg was beltl at the Court House jes-

measures for the organi-ation of a Gold Min- 
ing CcmpanT to tt-kt the Vernijlion Lake ro- 
?»onj, and to ascertain >»hether or not profita- 
ble gold mining can be prft-ecnted there. 

Considering the fact that the meeting was 

gotHin up on the spur ot the moment, and con- 

e'"incntly was not geneial'v known, quite a 

respectable number of onr solid bnf inev'- mon 

were ia attendance.

-vnsthaiocoaiioned by the gradnal influence 
-r' the elements no'w operatiuj. But as dcm- 
ooatrated by Agassi! and other competent 
fdentiflc authorities, the >>rgiutl mountain 
raago north of Lake Superior, in which the 
late gold discoveries have l>cen made, has

DonnatioQ of a company to be known as tbe 
"People's Geld Mining Companv of Minne-

Col. R. jpoke at >ome length on the kws

i 'he Rocky Mountains, and claimed that it is

oiinere o: Miancscti like advantages — to pre- 
sent the nonorolT of our gold fields and the 
eaactnent of laws to lavor such monopoly 
and the toleration cf a dog m the manger

"iJSignE cf individaals, to the injury of popu-

On last Christmas the State cfflcers present- 
ed the Janitor at the Capitol Wm. Gruba, 
with an elegant wateh, as a reward for his 
faithful services. He was, of course, natu- 
rally delighted with his presei t, and especi- 
ally so, coming fh)m so high a source. He 
wrote all the I'articulars cone ;ming it to his 
father in Germany, wh« was o pleased with 
his son s goo<l tortune that h. forwarded to 
him several bottles of Rhhie WiV. and re- 
quested thM he «ho'ildir<«e"' i» '■- the "^tate 
officers. Tnstead of doing jo m the time h« 
kept it until yesterday, when ^e, nukno^n to 
any any one, prepared aucic, jnl 'cast in i^c 
librsiry room, and invited them to partake 

The otl-cers had procured a Christmas prts 
ent for me Janitor, to be give » him on Mon- 
day, bu: thinking this «a ajpropriate occa 
sion, (iov. Miller, ^\hcn the teas*. ««< con-

Trustees ot the House cf n>pe, announcing 
that the pews of that ecclesi istical establish- 
ment will be sold at puNu- txr^Vi on Wed- 
nesday next.

some chance, after all, for a rich man to get 
into the kingdom of Heavet>. He that hath

that which he hath, in rig;d lompliance with 
the Scriptural precept. As ; Kats in the House 
of Hope are limited m number und rapidly 
rising in value, the oomiuf sale presents a 
splendid opportunity for a proflttH-- specula- 
tion in pews. 

A few enterprifcing pawn- irokers might go 
in and bay off the whole lot and so comer the 
House of Hope stock us completely as Frairie 
du Chlen railroad stock >v«:. recently corner- 
ed in Wall Street. 

With the whole thing m their ov, n hands 
they might do a good thin;; in pewt. Since

Coireipoudi'aco of the Cinciaailt Gaiet.c-, 

WASutrcto.-;, Dec. 17.— At a social party at 
Mr. Wetmore'a the other evening, Mr. Ccrwin 
was in the best of spirits, and looked' better 
than his friends remembered seeing him for 
months. But a fdw d.iys before he had re- 
turucd from hii Ohio home, where he had 
;ronc to attend the wedding of his youngest 
daugUtei. His faculties seeined all attuned 
and stimulate.: by the pleasant incident; es 
well as by the warm and alfjctionat j greetings 
'^ ith which he was received. Makintf his way 
through the crowd of men who bad grown 
:nto prominence under his eye, he vi-as .<ated 
at the side of tlic rfjoni, and at once drawn 
into animated Ulk. His old and fCTjrUc law- 
student. General Schctick, c.in.o to talk of 
the home wedding; Chiel Justice Cliaso hast- 
ened to j-'reet him ; Senator Ben. Wade install- 
ed himself by h-s side, and b.gced him totell 
a favorite story. " I^ave not seen him ior ten 
years past, so much like the old TomOorwin 
of my Doyhood, " said Gen. Durbin Ward, his 
law student and subscrjuenily his partner. 
" Tiierc's but one Tom Corwin in the n-orld,' 
enthusiastically exclaimed anoihcr, as he 
moved back a little out ol the in-oup where he 
had been swallowing every syHuhlc. 

Thus surrounded tjy the brilliant nnd dis- 
tinguished in the State, old ri\als and antag 
onii'ts nicctin,t him with admiring warmth, 
seeing all about him the men who liad prown 
up under hiiu, every one attentive to his low- 
est tone and slightest gesture. Gov. Corwin 
must have regarded !t ai on* of tha .'unniast 
episodes ot hit downward wa;. :t life. 

Dy and by supper was annonuccd. Ecu. 
Wade took his arm, helped Mm to tbt stalr- 
ca;e. and found a scat for him on a ^ofa. He 
would tai nothing — only taking c couple of 
oysters and a glas?-: of water. But h's liow ol 
genial aneceote and sparkling wit, varied now 
and then by one ot those tuachcs of pathos, 
or one of those suggestive utid fcr-reaching 
political reflections he knew jo well how to 
apply, continued with unabated brilliancy. 

Some of the Ohio belles who grace the cap- 
ttal were on the other side of the room ; l)ut 
even from them he drew away listeners, till 
he and Wade, who > t beside him on the 
safa, were fjirly hemmed in by a circle that 
embraced half the people in the room. His 
tones, however, grew unusually low; and 
men were bending down, trying to catch every 
syllable. 

He had been talking of Brazil, and replying 
to a remark of our Consul at Rio Janciru, who 
had just lieen speaking to him of Don Pedro, 
the Emperor, he said . " Yes, Don Pedro, I'm 
Bare is a tine man— what, in fact, we would 
call, sir (with an indescribable epitome of all 
possible jokes m the madden play of his fea- 
tares), in oor cou.ntry a popu ar man Why, 
sir. so highly do I fate his popular (ualities 
that if wo had him in Warren county, we'd 
elect him sheriff— uo mean test of popularity, 
sir." Then he began to speak ot Mexico, 
first in the same jocose vein, fell ug how, 
when thev began shooting and cutting throats 
all around and within sithi of the capital, he 
came to the conclusion that the country didn't 
suit a gentleman ot steady habits, and so he 
came home. "A Frenchman came tome — a 
smart fellow whom Mn.xiraihan sent. He 
would be so distressed, if, because th? French 
flag came ttie .Vmerican flag shonld leave— 
confound his politeness I But if I had to gov- 
ern Mexico under the Empire, I'd make that 
Frenchman Emperor." From this he diverg- 
ed Into more seriou."^ talk of Mo.ican aOairs; 
speaking with all his old fervor, and gesticu- 
lating freely. For a low gentonces Ids tones 
gradually grt •• low.r, 5o that e-eu Wac'e, 
sitting at his side, could not hear; then his 
head dropped on bia breast— a common mo- 
tion with him wL^n h' had finished a train of 
thought. 

Thestraiued titentiou of the circle vas bro- 
ken, and men began to notice that the room 
was oppressively warm. Wade rose to get a 
breath of fresh air, and there was a general 
movement. Suddenly Gov. Corwn was ob- 
served to extend his hands as (f groping in the 
dark, and to say, "Room, a little room ; it is 
very warm." Some one took him by the am 
and helped him to rise; and a harried whis- 
per ran around, "Make room for Gov. Corwin 
—ho is fainting with the heat." One and 
another aiding him he tottered to the door. 
Durbin Ward was now trying to hold him up, 
bat his wounded arm was too weak, and he 
called to Gardeld : another took liim un the 
other side, and still another sprang down the 
staircaso in front, aud helped to support his 
weight. The feet of the Uricken old states- 
man dragged helplessly behind him. He was 
carried in and laid down ou a bed in an adja- 
cent chamber. His right hand was lifted ud 
and laid ovi.r bis brcast^it fell helplessly 
back upon tbe bed. The c^se was plain — his 
whole right side was paralyzed. He had not 
spoken since he asked in the supper room for 
fresh air ; but as he noted the shocked expres- 
sion v.ith which those about him saw the right 
hand tall, he lifted up the other, opened nnd 
shut the fingers, as if to say, " I know what 
has happened ; but this you see is all right." 
Some threw op the windows, piled wet 
towls on his forehead, and tore open bis col- 
lar; others hurried out for doctors; still oth- 
ers carefully piled blankets on the lower 
part of his person. • 

Observing his wistful Uck, I bent over h.r.i 
and asked If the pillows were proper'y ad- 
■■ustcd, or it we could do anything mf.re for 
him till the doctor came. The ^espons^ w.ss 
in a whisper, hut onite audibl", "No. it will 
do very well.' Beyond a simple "Yes* or 
"No," once or twice repeated in ans-vcr to 
questions within the next hour, they were his 
last words. He lay, gasping sometimes as if 
in suffocation ; then again for a '^"n intt^.erts 
breathing almost easily. 

Presently Col. Bliss, an army Surgeon, the 
first medical man who could be found, bar 
riedin. He ashed scarcely a question, Htted 
the lifeless hand, felt the pulse at wrist and 
temples, and we read his hopeless verdict in 
his face as he turned away to order roustiini 
plasters, and whatever other poor devicei 
medical skill fould bring to bear against the 
inevitable. A. few moments later Dr. Lincoln 
entered; then soon afterwards Surgeon Gen- 
eral Barnes. They agreed on what had bien 
done, and on the utter usele!"<ncs- of all thi-ir 
well-mean efforts.

Another dispatch says the President has 
sent Gen. Grant's report on the condition of 
the South to Congress. It presents the re- 
salt of the Gene ral's observation during his 
tour to the South, and is a highly favorable 
expression of great confidence in the good 
faiih ot the Southern people, and their rcadi 
ness to accept the Issues of tbe war. The ten- 
or of the report is iavcr»blo to the restoration 
to the Southern people of their full privileges 
of citizenship. The communication has pro- 
duced a marked eflect here, as great confi

Mr. Corwin died ta-day, at about hali-ra^t

tUF. KECOMTKrCTtO.N Ql E-llO.N 

The feeling is gaining gronnil among Inn n 
men that Congress and the President aT di 
verginr from each other in the policy of tc 
construction. Union men in Congress arc 
positive that two-thirds of Congresi will never 
consent to the admission of the Southern 
States, except by a law passed by both hous- 
es, and providing fur tbe most thorough gnar- 
anteei of equal and exact lastice to all men. 
Judge Trumbull has introduced a most 
stringent bill, providing lor the protection cf 
all men, under the ron3titnti>n, r-t whiiiHMr 
color or race. 

It is rumored that the Fr«si<lcnt lnte^(^» to 
immediately withdraw ail the Provisional 
Governors in the seceded ' utes, as he has 
done in the case of Alabama, nnd thus hand 
those SUtcs over to their respective consiitu- 
"tional governments. 

The fact that the President did not send in 
Gen. Schnr/.'s aad Gen. Howard's reports un- 
til he could also send in a repottfrom Gen. 
Grant, giving the other side of the question, is 
looked upon as exhibiting a desire to keep tbe 
policy ot immediate admission from being 
prejudiced. 

The issue of the proclamation by Mr. Sew- 
ard of the latification of the Constitutional 
Amendment io looked upon as a direct blow 
at the position assumed by the L'nion major- 
ity in Congress, as it assumes the seceded 
States to be in the Union. Judge Trumbull, 
I understand, takes issue with Mr. Seward on 
the point that these States are in the Union. 
Ho does not think that any power but 
Concress has the right to pass upon the ques- 
tiouT He shares this opinion with nearly all 
the Union men of both Houses. 

THE BANK 01 01 XEKAI.. 

Mr. Washburno's bill reviving the oibce of 
General meets with stronger opposition daily. 
The present attitude of Gen. Grant docs not 
Improve its prospects. 

Richmond papers claim that Gen Grant is 
in favor of the Immediate admi."Sion oi the 
seceded States, and that be has stated that be 
will advise his friends In Congress to rote 
for it. 

Correspondence Chicago Ittbunf . 

The Committee on the Bankrupt Law have 
unanimously agreed to report the Jenckes' 
bankrupt bill. 

A Washington special states that while tbe 
President was preparing his message tbe 
French Minister emphatically stated that the 
Emperor wonld much regret any expression 
in the message which would make it impos- 
sible to recede from his Mexican scheme with- 
out humiliation. The Minister also assured 
Mr. Seward that the French troops would be 
withdrawn from Mex'-co in a little, while, and 
asked for patience on the part of onr Gov- 
ernment. It is rcperted that Geu. Logan li

CoL. Gbu. JJ. MoHOAN. — Colonel 
Morgan has been obliged, on account of his 
illness, to leave the Fort aod come to Minne- 
apolis to remain until ho gets better. The 
Colonel was connected with the First Minne- 
sota, and afterward attached to the Invalid 
Corps, and for a long time commandant of 
the draft rendezvous at Fort Snelling. He 
has been an excellent ofiBccr, a brave and 
earnest soldier, and the community, howev- 
er glad they may be to see him again at his 
home in Minneapolis, will l-am with sorrow- 
ful feelings, that he is obliged to keep in 
doors all the time and h's.bed the greater part 
of the day 

TllSbAT, 4 I. M. 

CuRisiMa:; Day dawned npon us 
pieasautly enough. It was not tqo warm nor 
too cold, so sleighridiog and skating were 
Bgieeable pastimes . The private and public' 
stables of the town were vacated cf hor»c» 
and cutters, long liefore the the forenoon had 
bet in, and the steeds presented an nnusually 
lively appearance. Everybody was tiding 
who was not walking or ska! lag down on the 
ice of the river. The Minne-ha-ha Club had 
cleared abont a third of an acre, and at 12 
o'clock the space was alive with twisters and 
twirlers, circlers and lots of lookers on. Most 
of the skaters wore the green ticket of the 
association in their caps, or pinned to the 
lappel of their overcoats, and boys and men 
without were proaptly ejected from the 
cleared space as trespassers. Late in the af- 
ternoon Upton took pictures of the scene. 
Skin the Episcopal churches, on both sides of 
tho river, services were held in the morning, 
and the Te Deum chauted, and the Catholic 
churches were also open. In the evening a 
supper was given to the Sabbath School of the 
Plymouth Congregational church. 

\ dancing party came off at the Wlaslow 
House. St. AntUony, which was a merry affair. 
Lots of Christmas trees and Chrtstmns parties 
enlivened the homes of citizens, aod joyous- 
ness sat npon thousands of faces. The tokens 
of friendship and esteem which came to us, 
were not less thankfully received than those 
which came to hundreds of others, for every 
gift is in iTselt a pleasing remembrance, and a 
token of aiicction.

If yon %re not rich It is all the more your duty to 
lay aside a *maU amount each year in life in- 
snrance; and if yoa are rich, you etriairHtj ftct» 
no excuse fbr not pro-Min;; while yrm may, for 
those dependant upon yon, by obtaining afhlly 
paid up PoUoy on your life. Your riches may take 
wings and then you will regret not having made 
this investment. 

Because, second ; Ihs Mntnal Life Insurance 
Company of New York, the oldeet, safest and 
best company In ihe United States, with Thirteen 
MliUon Five Hundred Thousand Dollars caJh

Tb* Ftrw lorrcBponflcnt of the New 
Yoxk Tribune ^ayt tbat Maximilian has 
adopted a son cf Rurbidc, a lormcr Km- 
peror of Mexico, as Uis succeMor to the 
throne of thmt conntry . anil that Madame 
Tturfcjde — th»» widow ol the I'mporor — i 
resident cf Philadi-lplia sinoe the violent 
death of Lcr bnsband i.-* "»w in Paris on 
a secret visit npon the V^usiness of the 
proposed adoption. The name of Itur- 
bide recalls an interesting chapter of the 
revolutionary history of Mexico. He was 
a Spaniard by birth, .tnd being in com- 
mand of a royalist army in Southern 
Mexiv.0. in 1^21, conceived the design of 
emancipating Mexico from the Spanish 
yoke, which he accomplished successfully, 
rapidly ar.d without bloodshed. In 1SJ2, 
the people and garrison ol Mexico pro- 
•"laimcd him Emperor— the army and 
the Mcs!' an Congreaa ratifying the nom- 
'T39t!on s!)J Con^reps afterwards de- 
clared lb<c < Town hereditary in tha Itur- 
t'ide family . 

Bat be was not long able ti< maintain 
hi?' authority Another revolution under 
Santa Anna, who proclaimed a Republic, 
broke out and forced him to resign his 
■ rown in 1S23. He went abroad to 
ftaly with a yearly pension o( .*J5,'.KX>. 
In May, 1821 be embarked from Kogland 
for Mexiio. and. with a view to recover 
hia lost empire, landed \n disguise upon 
the coa^t. The Mexican Government, 
apphaed ot his leaving Italy, bad pro- 
icribed him 35 d traitor. He wa:i seized 
while endeavoring to reach the inte- 
rior of Mexico, and was shot. The wife 
of Iturbide and his two children, who had 
also landed in Mexico, received lib- 
er»l treatm<>nt from the Mexican Govern- 
ment. The pension promised to Itur- 
bide on bia abdication was continued to 
his widow, on condition that she should 
reside in Colombia or the United States. 
She chose Pbiladslphiaa? her rendezvous, 
and has since lived there in dignified re- 
ttrexnent for forty years, occupied with 
mlh the education of her children. A 
fiew dtkji. ago we published a paragraph 
to the effect that she was then in Phila- 
delphia. It was probably designed to 
ccacea! lb>» fact of h«r visit to Pans. 



Mississippi, after first rejecting the 
Ccnstituticnal Amendment, baa at last 
ratified it with certain curious ijoalffica- 
timia. One is that the assent of the leg- 
islature ahall not be construed as abridg- 
ing the i^overeignty of the State, nor into 
a consi'Dt that Congresu may abolish sla- 
very in .iny State that refusea to ratifj'. 
They don't !5>-cni to know dowu theie 
rhiit the assent of three-fourths of the 
States makes (be Amendment operative. 
Another proviso i« that the r-econd sec- 
tion •'shall not be construed" as a 
grant of power to Congress to legislate 
in respect to the frcedmen, and here we

from reatinj; or leasing lands — a specimen

wsy ordered this law to I e disrcgnrded, and 
Gen. Howard issued an order to Col. Thomas 
to continue to protect the freedmen in the 
right to lease lands. That is all right and 
proper aod nccsijarr, but does It not properly 
raise a qaestica as to the precise condition of

Lively Debate in tiie Senate. 



De1>Bte en the Stevens Resolu- 
tion. 

A ' crresp'jodent <>f the Milnaukee Senti- 
nel writea from Wi«!,hiBcton tbat the ameud- 
ment which alone t nf bled the Stevens reso- 
lution to get t!irough the Senate, without, 
however, imparing its efficiency, waa prepa- 
red by Senator Hc.vc, vl Wisconsin, though 
iDtroda'C'l '-y Senator Anthony of Rhode 
Island. The rc»olution and amendment were 
approved by Senators Saulsbary, Doolittle, 
Guthrie, of Kentucky, and others, and advo- 
tated by Senator- Trumbull, Fesscnden and 
others. Concerning the debate and Senator 
noolittle"» Jorensic powers, this correspond- 
ent say^ : 

"Senttor Dooiiitle has no superior in the 
Senate as a speaker; bis magnificent voice 
penetrate!? to the remotest nook of the galle- 
ries, and his impressive manner secures an 
attentive audience. Mr. Fessenden, of Maine,

speech n support of the amendment, assert- 
ing his esteem for and his confidence in the 
President, but declaring that he pinned his 
faith to no man's sleeve, and as a member of 
the Senate should exercise the prerogative of 
acting and voting as his best judgment led 
him to bejieve was the best for tlie interests of 
the country."

count ot an interview with Governor 
Holden : 

The Provisional Governor of North 
Carolina, Mr. Holden, resides in this 
town, and I took the opportunity of mak- 
ing some inquiries oi him respecting the 
frefdmen. lie said tbat their prospects 
could not be regarded without sorrow by 
any feeling man, and he spoke of the ab- 
oli'lion of slaver)- as a great calamity to 
the black race. The State bad always 
bad Liws to compel white vagrants to 
work, and it must now coerce the blacks 
in the same way. I told him of the sys- 
tem in use in India with the ryota on in- 
digo and tea plantations, and explained 
Mr. Maine's i-ontraot law to him, and 
asked whether be thought such a plan 
would be efUcaciotis here. lie thought 
it might, if whipping were insisted on aa

In the Senate on the iOih, the {ueation 
b»ung on reading the report of Gen. Carl 
Scharz. accompany in;^ the Messa !^e of the 
President on the condition of th • South, 
the followiiifj debaf »» oi'cuired : 

Mr. Snmner — At any rafo we « an begin 
it; it is a very important dcrument. 
The Senate will remember that <»hen the 
report was made out on the lOndition 
of alfairs in Kansas, every word fas read 
at that desk. Now the question involved 
is much more important. We have a 
message from the President whiih is like 
the whitewaahing message of Franklin 
Pierce with regard to the atrc cities in 
Kansas. I think the Senate bad better 
listen to the report of General S .'hurL- on 
this subject. 

Mr. Johnson ^Dcm. . Md.^ said he. was 
surprised to hear the Senator fr»m Mas- 
sachusetts characterize the mess:igc as an 
attempt to whituwa.-^h. There ^is no 
whitewash about it. It was a fair and 
clear statement ol facts, called 1 ir by the 
Senate. Ue thought the repovi of lien- 
Schur : had better be piict'd •'^gethcr 
with the other documents. 

The reading of General Schu: 's rei^ort 
was coomenced, but the Clerh bad not 
proceeded far Then 

Mr. Sherman (Rep., Uhio,) moved that 
the further reading be di^pen; .d with. 
and that the report be printed. 

Mr. Sumner — I will not objt .1 to that 
if the Senator from Ubio thinks that it is 
proper that wc should on tbiu inportant 
occasion, dispense with the re iding. I 
think the Senate could not listen to any. 
thing of more importance than i bat accu- 
rate and authentic report, regarding the 
actual condition ot things in the c States. 
Here is an eminent citizen, latel/ a Major 
General in the army of the Unit id States, 
aent on a special mission by the President 
to visit these States and report upon 
their condition. Ue bas made bis visit, 
not hasty, like General (rrant. for in- 
stance, or tome other officers o * citizens, 
but a visit occupying time, ami extend- 
ing through the diH'erent State i, and be 
bas recorded the results in an elaborate 
document. Now, sir, if the qneetion 
were a trivial one, or if it weic a tran- 
sitory question, I would thinl with the 
Senator from Ubio, that it had I'Ctter not 
bt read. If the Senator insist- upon bis 
motion I shall nut object. 

Mr. Sherman bad no doubt ll at the re 
port of General Schur.: was i laborato, 
able and interesting. He would much 
prefer to read it, however, than to hear it 
read, where there was confusion and 
noise, as in the Senate chaaber. He 
would say, also, that it was < nusual to 
read such documents. No locnment 
was usually read to the Senate '.tceptthe 
message of the President of tl e United 
States. Even the report of tlic Secre- 
tary of the Treasury, full of in formation 
of paramount importance toth<: country, 
having views affecting the great financial 
interests of the country, was not read, 
but ordered to be printed. If the prac- 
tice of reading all documents dent to the 
Senate were to prevail, there would be 
no time tor business. 

Mr. Doolittle (Rep., Wis.)- The Sen- 
ator from Massachusetts gave expression 
to one remark which brought, i leenn to 
mc, injustice to himself, and which be 
ought to qaahfy, if not altogetl er to re- 
tract. Speaking of the me99a;e just re- 
ceived from the President, he s tid it was 
like the whitewashing message of Frank- 
lin Pierce to cover the trans ictions in 
Kansas ; and tbat the allairs in these 
States sought to be covered up i nd white- 
washed by the President, were much 
worse than those in Kansas. *«ow. Mr. 
President, I think the Senator fi om Mass- 
achusetts must have let fall thai express- 
ion without giving it sutlicient thought. 
I cannot believe tbat tbat Sena or. occu- 
pying the high position he do» >, repre- 
senting the great State he doeo , « iehcs to bo 
understood as stating here in tl e Senate, 
and to the country, tbat this message just 
received from the President is a white- 
washing message, seeking to a ver up or 
conceal certain transactions, h state of 
things infinitely worse than tht traosar*. 
tions in Kansas. That terriltle affair, 
which was the beginning ol all our 
troubles, was a civil war itsseli, the pre- 



lude to the great war from which wo have 
just emerged. I believe, sir, that the 
honorable Sena'or from Massachusetts, 
will at least qualify, if he does not wholly 
rctraat, this strong expression. 

Mr. Sumner— I have nothing to qualify ; 
nothing to modify ; nothing to retract. 
In former days ttiere was but one Kansas 
to snffer under illegal power : now there 
are eleven Kansasvs suffering as only 
one sullereH. Therefore, sir, as eleven 
arc more than one, so ir" the enormity of 
the present time more than the rnorraity 
of the days of Franklin PiTcc. 

Mr. l>ixon. iKcp., t."onn ) The L»cn 
ator tipirt Mass.irbusetts nays the enormi- 
ties in the Elates lately in rebellion are 
greater tlmn those of Kansas in former 
days. I beg to remind the Senator that 
that is not precisely the tjuestion raised 
by the Senator from Wisconsin. There 
it no question here as to Iht- misconduct 
of anybody in Kansas or in the Southern 
States. Thu charge has been directly 
made tbat the ['resident ol the United 
States has sent in a whitewa.'<hcd report in 
regard to these enormities. Sir. 1 cannot 
pass tbat in silence. Wiiat is a whitewashed 
report •' It is a report intended to ••over 
up by falsehood and misstatements cer- 
tain facts. Tbat is a whilewashed report. 
Now, fir. as a friend of the President, 
(and I profess no exclusive or peculiar 
friendship for hiin.) I cannot sit iiuictly 
and listen in silence to such charges. 1 
sustain the policy of the President as I 
understand it; not because it is the 
President's policy, but because it is right. 
I believe in ib'j iruih of the statementa he 
ba3 made, ."ud although he needs no de- 
fense, I LanBot Sillier snch charges to to 
to the « juntry without protest. 

Mr. Uoolitlle— Whether tbc I'lcsi- 
dent's policy be right or not, the charge 
of the Senator from Massachusetts docs 
not go to t4iat question at all. If the Sen- 
ator from Massachnsotts differs from him 
and believes him to be wrong, th.it is one 
thing h« bas a perfect right to do ; but, 
Mr. President, he goes further. He 
charges upon the President of the United 
States falsehood in substance, by saying 
his message is a whitewashing report. 
He charges him with a want of truth— a 
want of patriotism. What else can we 
infer from bis remarks ' It is that which 
pained mc. I was not pained because 
the honorable Senator differed from the 
President. l|knew he difl'ered from the 
President on this question ; but I was 
very much chagrined to hear tbat Sena- 
tor, as I should be to hear any ether 
Senator on the floor of the Senate, (jues- 
tion the truth, the integrity, and the pat- 
riotism of the Pre.<'ident, however much 
he might disagree in opinion. I had sup- 
posed that we all, every member of this 
body, had full faith in the good intrn- 
tions of the President and love of truth. 
If bo ha • specially displayed any charac- 
ter in this struggle it IS that of uncom- 
promising love of truth, love of country, 
and love of Union which bus made him 
sachtice and endanger all he had during 
the struggle in the South and which 
bas always • baracterized him as a 
man. It was not that the honorable 
Senator questioned the propriety of the 
policy recommended by bim, bnt because 
he made use of the remaik that il was a 
whitewashing mesaage." and intended 
to cover up i.itaro) Tha'. I confess, 
ail, pained mu cxcttdingly, and I was 
none the less pained tbat after having 
called bi3 attention <<> it. ^c should ris*" 
and 3ay that he has uolhin': to modify, 
nothing; to qualify, nothin;; to retract. I 
have said all, perhaps more than I ought 
to have said. I shall not go into any 
diacussion of these matters at the pres- 
ent time. 

Mr. Sumner -I am sorrv that I have

given pain to my honorable friends ; 1 
cert.iiiily did not intend to do so. They 
suggest that the (juestionbas been raised 
as lo the policy of the President. I have 
raised no unch tjuestion, and have ex- 
pressed no opinion in regard to it. The 
Senator fiom Wisconsin dwells on that 
point and reminds the Senate tbat the 
poli^"y of the rresident was not in que$- 
tion. I knew it was not in i|uestion and 
therefore expressed no opinion on it ; 
for when I speak in this body I try to 
speak directly to the (|ue8tion. Iherc 
was. then, no cjuestion directly before the 
Senate. Had there been, I should 
have been ready to7mect it. The only 
liuestion was on the character ot the doc 
umeot read, and tbat I characterized as 
a "whitewashing document." My hon- 
orable friends rose one after another, and 
like two lexicographers proceeded to give 
a dclinitien of the "whitewash."' 1 do 
net accept their debnition. I intended 
no ?!•• b meaning as cither the Senator 
from Ccnnccticui, or the Senator from 
Wi-:cousin ha? attempted to give. I have 
no reflection to make on the patriotism 
or truth of the President of the United 
(States. Never tn pnblic or private have 
Imade any such rttlection, and do not 
begin not». When I epoks I spoke of a 
doctiment tbat had bten read at the desk, 
and I cbaracterfzed it a? I thought it 
ought to be charactcrii'cd. My memory 
goes back io this chamber fnrtbfr than 
that of many f see about mc. 

1 remember that other scene when a 
whitewashing message did come into this 
body from Franklin Pierce. We all at 
that time tailed it a whitewashing report, 
and 1 am not aware that any one then on 
the other ride undertook what my honor- 
able friends from Wisconsin and from 
Connecticut have undertaken to-day. 
We all felt then that Mr. Pierce's message 
was a whitowasbiog document I simply 
undertook to-day, after bearing that doc- 
ument read at the dc»k, to characterize it 
as the patriotic parly of 185G character- 
ized the message of Franklin I'ierce. 

Mr. Dixon— I am glad to hear the dis- 
claimer now made by the Senator from 
, Massachusetts. Although be declared 
he had no c^planaiiun to make, nothing 
to retract, he now says be did not use the 
word in the Jenso in which it is always 
understood. Very well It ho thinks 
the word "whitewashing"' a proper term 
to apply to the message ol the. President 
and means nothing by it. I am content 
to allow him to give his own definition." 1 
had understood the word to mean what 
1 have indicated, and what the common 
sense of most men understands by it. 
l?ut as the Senator is skilled in lexicog- 
raphy. I will not object to his applying 
his own definition of the term generally 
considered so cUensivc. 

Mr. Trumbull (Rep., III.) rose to ask 
that this debate cease. It was not in 
their province to criticise or remark upon 
the expressions of opinion which Senators 
had thought proper to indulge in. But 
it did .^eera to him that a controversy bad 
arisen which wa^ not calculated for the 
public interest or welfare. 

The question was then stated by the 
Chair to be on the motion of Mr. Sher- 
man to print the report of (.ivincralScburz 
with tho other documents, and it was car- 
ried.

SoHlhern Eyes and ^iontlicrn 
Faces. 

Soulbirn Correspondence New Tork Tribune. 

A keen obserter will at once notice 
that tbe people oi tbe North and of the 
South are eeparated iDtfllectually and 
tuoraUy more widely than they are separ* 
atcd geographically and politically. Uc 
will quickly noto tbe fact, that the beads 
of tb« people arc far smaller — by several 
sizes— on an average, in the Southern 
than in the Northern States. If he is an 
expert phrenologist, be will not fail to 
mark bow undeveloped, as contrasted 
with tbe Northern people ol similar rank, 
arc tbe moral and intellectnal faculties : 
and that, at the same time, the jaw* and 
lips indicate a more universal develop- 
ment of will-power, in its grosser 
forms, than is common in the free 
States. But if be is more than a 
mere phrenologist — if he can rap- 
idly decipher those nnerring records of 
tbe soul that arc written, as in steno- 
graphic notes, in tbe expression ol the 
eyea. he will no longer be astonished that 
a civil war was waged and inevitable be> 
twecn tbe two peoples. For, it is the 
necessity of evil, when it conie» of 
age, to war aga'nst tbe Uighl,— - 
and the more right, tbe more dercely. A 
century of culture separates New England 
from Virginia and tbe Carolina^ — a hun- 
dred years of moral and intellectual 
growth. Look at these bard, shallow, or 
sensnal eyes — cold, glittering or greasy 
—and you need no traveler to tell you 
that their theology is stern, forbkidiog, 
rigid ; that their social life is marked by 
harsh, tyrannical and repulsive features ; 
that t le tierce blast of Moses, not the ge- 
nial brestb of J;sus, is their choice and 
tbe object of their admiratioD. I looked 
everywhere, but looked in vain, to see 
that soft, spiritual eye which is so ''om- 
mon among the women of refinement and 
culture. "The women here," said a lady 
at Charleston, *'look as if they bad never 
been kissed." It was a happy expression 
of an impression tJ:at was made on me 
everywhere. Ab .' it is a terrible rf'V^ngc 
which the slave has inflicted on the vrbitc 
race. He who defrauds the poor, loses 
tho power of moral insight ; be who 
whips a woman, whatever ber condition, 
loses tbe power of loving tenderly. A 
spiritual love idealizes the face ; there is 
no mistaking its presence , but I have 
never f ?en it manifested anywhere in the 
South.

I have in my mind an instance ol a lady who had 
been suffering IromiNiinful M^ndtrualion t<vo or

She had applied to several eminent physicians, 
without relief, wh<n one bottle of my DBUPS

It Is Imposelble to enjoy the bloom of health 
and vivacity ot apitits, unless the Menses are 
regular as to the time, the quantity, and quality. 
Wnen they are obstructi.d nature makes her ef- 
iorts to obtain for it some other outlet, and unless 
these efforts of nature are assisted, the patient 
usually experiences Despondency, Nervousness, 
and tlnally, CON.SUMPTION' assumes its sway, 
and prematurely terminates a miserable life.

4 KeUable Restorative 



ANr> 



PERFECT HAIR DRESSING! 



This admirable preparation is a most 
effloient remedy for Baldness. It pre- 
vents the hair from falling off or turning 
gray, and causes it to grow luxuriantly, 
making it very soft, glossy and beautiful, 
restoring it to its natural color. It also 
frees the head from dandruff and cures 
all diieases of tho scalp. A few appli- 
cations will convmce the most skeptical 
of the truth of the above statements. 

AlalSMA 

Shou'd be used by every one who would 
preserve a beautiful head of Hair. 

ALISMA 

Should be used by every one who would 
improve the color and texture of their 
Hair. 

AI^ISMA 

Should be used by every one who would 
restore their Hair to more than its origi- 
nal beauty and luxuriance.

This Is a work by Mies Edmunds, the talent- 
ed lady who did snch splendid service ia the 
Army of the Potomac, fearlessly exposing 
her life in ter devotion to the brave boys 
who lay weltering in their blood on the field 
of carnage. Her style as a writer proves that 
she is not a novelist, bat, as Mrs. H. B. Stowe 
sayi, of her, -'one who has something to say 
and$ay$ii." Some passages are singularly 
beautiful and tender, and many nnnsed to 
weep -vill feel their eyes moisMn as they read 
01 tLe sufferings of those who so nobly laid 
down their lives for their country's good. The 
work IS sold by subscription. Mr. Sinclair, 
who has just returned from the tented field, 
Is now canvassing the city, and we are pleased 
to see the name of our worthy Governor at 
the head of the list. Every one who feels in- 
terested in those -who so gloriously upheld 
our banner m the late conflict (and who does 
not ":) should add a copy of Ibis work to their

■vith the Chtirch than with the Sabbath School. 
He fe.i that the aopressions which he had re- 
saived ia tie Saboath Sclioo! had taken a 
deeper hold ujjon his mhid than those from 
almost auv o'Jicr sourct;, and whatever suc- 
cess he h:ul achieved in life, he attributed ia 
a very largo decree to the influences of the 
Sabbath S.^hool. The General conclnded his 
remarks .jy wishini; them all <■. merry Christ- 
mas and happy New Y'oar. 

Rev. Mr. Mattocks wished tuem ali a merry 
Christmas : throe hundred 01 them 1 the lanr- 
est anmlicr be had ever seen ia a 5=abbafh 
School it St. Paul " How did it happen that 
so many scholars \vere in att-'.ndancc to-day ? 
It reminded him of the fable of the man who 
had been rich and suddenly became poor, by 
which he lost all his fhends but his favorite cat. 
He 'eft his home, and started on a lojg jour- 
ney, taking with him a piece of cheese and his 
*^t. StOiiping at a spring to quench his 
thirst, ho laid down his wallet in which was 
his chee-^e, when the cat suddenly seized it 
and ran away, sayinir a^ it left, that it had 
beea amallitui tliat cheese for some time ! 

He thont ht it '• lokcd a little like some of 
tbese scholars hud smelied c?ie*3i, which had 
Induced toem to c ono oat to-day. He hoped, 
however, that they would attend Sunday 
School next year. 

The prixes were then given to the banner 
scholar?:, after which the Christmas packages 
•vere destrlbured to all the school. The whole 
aifair passed ^ff very pleasantly, and many a 
hrtle heart was miUe gUiu by being so kindly 
r-meml)ered fiv .their superintendent and 
facherrs. 

HOUSE or HOPE SV.VDAT SCHOOL. 

Ihe Festival of the House of Hope Sunday 
School took place at 11 o'clock, a. v.. The 
exercises were octned with singing, after 
which ivas the reading of the scriptures and 
prayer The Tanth A.:nual report of the

There are muuy other items of interest in the

our spaee forbids. 

Appropriate addresses were made by Uer. 
P. A- Noble and Judge McMUlen. The fea- 
ture of tha occasion, however, which pleased 
Uie children most was the appearance of 
Santa Clans. Became blusterintj in, crack- 
ing his whip, and such an excitement as he 
made among the little ones : They streamed

mid on the platform, wero distribatvd among 
the children. The church was crov ded with

all the others it was a pleasant ai d joyous 
affair, and will long be remember ;d by the 
children of the school. 



-A fire was discovcrei ; about 7 
o'clock on Sunday night, in Irving': Block, in 
upper town, and the alarm being ;iven, the 
Fire Department were promptl • on the 
ground. The tire was fonnd to be in a small 
room In the rear of the United f-tatcsPay. 
master's office, which Is used as i kiud of 
wood and storage room. The fiie was al- 
ready under considerable headway, h.iving 
originated in the floor, burning a ccasiderable 
hole through it. and extending U)> the.win« 
dow casings, had reached the cei ing. The 
Hock and Lidder t'oropany wert to work 
with their axes, and by cutting oatlhec.is- 
ings, the fire was eatily extmguisaed with a 
few buckets of water— the engine companies 
not getting an opportunity to develop their 
muscle. 

The fire originated from some hot ashes 
which Major Finney's orderly had aken from 
tbe stove some time during the da;-, and hav- 
ing put them in a pine box, had plai ed the box 
back in this wood room. It was a foolish and 
highly culpable piece of carelessness, and 
which might have resulted in the lestradion 
ot the building, and probably the e itirc block

We belonged in the same sleigl. , as well as

The first reception at the White House wil

paper is simply an excellent counterfeit. 

Cnly about a dozen oilicers remain of the

Christmas was generally observed in Wash-

The ComrMieiura Washington special says 
intelligence received from the city of Mexico 
says there is remarkable growth of nationalty 
in that city andiatheintcrbr, and the French 
were becoming dally more unpopular, and 
their withdrawal would be immediately fol- 
lowed by the downfall of Maximilian. The 
new dynasty is only maiutaiucd by foreign

troops, and the state of anarchy which pre- s 
vails even in that portion of the Mexican ter- 
ritory which ho claims to have under his 
sway, notwithstanding tho repeated boasts 
that order aud happiness were to be the sure 
accompaniments of his reign. Forced loans 
of money aud other property are constantly 
Ijelng collected by the Imperial soldiers at the

to such iroatmtnt in.ur the penalty of death

urging picvances infiictod by the other. 

Gen. Wtitzel alleges that Gen. Mejia has, 
on mere suspicion. Imprisoned Innocent 
American eltiicns, and informs him, by order 
of Gen. Sheridan, that if such outrages are re- 1 
peatcd no personal apologies in him of his 
bad fa.ih will be accepted, and strongly inti- 1 
mates t.'iat ho will be authorized to settle the 
matter 1 y force ol arms. 

Gen. >iijia'B complaint is the old one, of aid 
and comfort given to Mexican Republicans by 
Gen. Weit.;cl's troops. 

Gen. Wtitzel says he is ordered to say that 
hereaftei when any garrison under Mejia's 
command is in a sUte of seige no supplies of 
any kind \'.:il be permitted to be sent to such 
garrison from this sida. 

Gen Sheridan considered that it would be 
less of a violation of neutrality against the le- 
gitimate outhoritv in Mexico to send powder 
to such garrison,' and that he is ordered to 
stop £.11 intercourse with any giurrison during 
the progre.'is of a siege, except that which hn 
manity shall dictate. 

The cori-espondent farther says that the 
probabilities of an active interference by the 
United States in ths affairs of Mexico, is the 
one thing thought of at Brownsville, and the 
impression Is verv strong that this will be de- 
laved but a short'time. Certainly the tone of 
the authorities is such as would warrant the 
conclusion that no great pains will be taken 
to avoid a rnpiure. 

The Times' Mexico correspondent says. 
General Diaz is carrying ail before him, and 
the whole State of Ajolca is in arms against 
the lmper;alist.s. The Liberals are masters of 
the whole coast between Vera Crni and Tu- 
shan, also south of Vera Cniz the Austrians 
have met several defeats. Marshal Bracane 
writes \' ejia that the northern frontier is un- 
der tho double protection ot the Emperor of 
Mexico aud the Empeiorof the French.

Louisville, Dec. 22. 

The morning newspapers pnblish and elabo- 
rate article upon the subject of taxing leaf to- 
bacco, written by a gentleman fully convers- 
ant with the subject. It Ukes strong ground 
against the position assumed by tho Tobaco) 
Convention recently held at the Cooper Insti- 
tute, New York. The writer contends that 
the proposed taxation of leaf tobacco would 
be injuring aliike the Government, the plant 
cr and the manufacturer. 

In the Common Council the charges of 
bribery against N. S. Gloie were not sustain- 
ed ; six were in the atirmativo and thirteen 
in the negative, but he was unanimously ex- j 
peiled from the Council for having so acted 
as to seriously compromise his associates.

New York, Dec. '2i. 

A liiarge of scandalous outrages on the part 
of tho members of u I'eniau circle in Jersey 
City, WHS yesterday made by a man named 
Chas. W. Newman, living in that town. He 
alleges that he was seized In the street on Fri- 
day nltrht, dn-.^^ed into a Fenian lodge room, 
charged with being z British spy, put upon 
trial, and. subjected to various indignities. 
During a struggle whicli ensued, he succeeded 
in making his escape. 

Isaac li. Vedder, Esq.. sprcial inspecUir ot 
tbe Navv Department, is now engaged in iu- 
au'-uratint: a ne » svstein of navy ac.:ountb by 
which it is cxpccttd to prevent any luture 
frauds on the (;o\*rnintnt. He has visited 
the naN V yards'at PhiJadeiphia and Boston, 
where the new systtm has been successtully 
introduced, aud is now discharging the same 
duty at the Brooklyn navy yard. 

A startling case of attempted murder, and 
sub.-equent attempted suicide, transpired in 
Broo'ilyn last evening. I'he parties in the 
affair have hitherto occupied the highest posi- 
tions in the estimation of their friends, and 
that of Ihe lady r: a ill unimpaired. Their 
names arc w. U. Rnss, a book keeper in tho 
ofilceof tiie M«;MCi!n national loan company 
in this city, and .Miss Frances M. Dayton, a 
native of Washington, Litchfield conn y, 

Conn. . ^ .. ,. 

lt:e lonnisr a lovtr of the latter, thinking he. 
had been deceived, or made insane by some 
unknown cause, while walking with the lady 
near her residence, suddenly drew a revolver 
and tired four shots at her. wounding her se- 
verely in the head, and then turning the 
•■vcapon upon himself fired two shots into his 

own skull. , ^ ,. ,_ . 

Thinking the woman dead he then ran to 
the river and threw himse'f into the w.iter, 
but afterwards escaped from It, and was fin.illy 
arrested. When taken into custody he had 
the weapon still in his possession, and his 
wounds were bleeding profusely. The yohng 
ladv is not expected to survive. Russ was 
conveyed to the Hospital, and hij wounds are 
not considered dangerous. 

New York, Dec. 26. 

Francis Smith, the mcrihant who was shot 
at his residence In Brooklyn, at4 o'clock Sun- 
day morning, by a burglar, was fa a comfort- 
able condition last night. No poslti^ clue to 
the assassiu has been ascertained up to last 
evening. 

Dr. Christ -iphcr Helez, an eminent surgeon 
snd physician for many years past, died sud- 
denly Saturday evening, at the New York 
Hosnital, of convulsions. 

There is ctmsiderable excitement in the city, 
owing to the promulgation by the Spuatorial 
partv of Fenians of cerUiin documents bear- 
ing iioon the present Fenian troubles. A iet- 
tei obtained from Jame; Stephens, obtained 
at the Dublin trial, denominates Oiiahony to 
a drag chain and a stumbling block. Tbe 
movement for a compromise is golnj on, and 
the rank and file begin to favor the retirement 
both of O'Mahony and the Senate. 

The condition of Wm. H. Russ, the would- 
be murderer and suicide, who shot Miss Fan- 
nie Daytonlin'Brooklyn on Saturday nisht, is 
quite favorable to recovery. Miss Dayton's 
condition is very low. She wil! hardly re- 
cover. 

Christmas was clcbrated with great fervor 
in this city yesterday. Christmas dinners and 
and presents were given ihe children of the 
Howard Mission and Homo for little Wan- 
derers; the Five Points Mission; the P^ive 
Points House of Industry ; and to the Vet 
erans in the Soldiers Depot In Howard street. 
Mr. John W. Farmer opened his doors to the 
widows and children of the dead Union sol- 
diers of the war. Christinas dinners were 
also given bv Institutions of charity in Brook- 
lyn, Jerjsey City and elsewiiere. 

Gen. Steadman, of Ohio, and Gen. Whit- 
taker, of Kentucky, have arrived in this city. 
The supply steamer Massachusetts will 
leave the Brooklvn navy yard on Saturday 
with mails, passengers and stores for the 
Gulf and Atlantic squadrons.

The Louijiana Legislature rdjourned to

House failed to pass the usual appropriation 
bills. The Governor vetoed the bill suspend- 
ing the collection of taxes for 1801, '62, '63, 
and (14 on the ground tnat it affords relief to 
I those who had attempted to destroy tho Gov- 
ernment and wi.o were absent from the city

mained paid taxa.-". 

The Ouachita river at Monroe rose 8 feet in 
six days ; a rise of If feet is reported at Cam- 
den, Arkansas. 

It is reported that there :s a good deal of 
cotton to come in from the West. The river 
business was somewhat checked by tbe screw- 
men's strike — owner's of vessels and steve- 
dors refusing to acceed to their demand. 

Shreveport dates to the Sta report that nav- 
igation is almost suspended oa account of tbe 
low water. 

Cotton continued to come in, being hauled 
a great distance ia order to reach naviga- 
tion.

Scburz, accoiapanyirg the McsLagecf the 
President on tl'^ tonJit-c. .: '-utb, 

the following debate Ovjcurro 1 . 

Mr. Sumner — At any rate wc vjaa b. gin 
it; it is a very important tooument. 
The Senats will remember thai yrbeii tbo 
report was nuda out en tbe con tition 
o! atlairs ia Kansas, every word w.\s rcid 
at that desk. Now tbe question inyclved 
i« much more important. Wn h.ive a 
message from tbe Fresidout wh jii ij liiie 
the whitewashing message of I'tanklin 
Pierce with regard to the atiocities in 
Kansas. 1 think the Senate 1 ad belter 
listen to the report r\' G,:u, ral Sihurz on 
this subject. 

Mr. JolsTi^on (1>. 1,1 . V.\.) ; lid!:'- was

proce3dcd far when 

rir. Sherman (F.ep., c'h.c,; luovcd tiiat 
tbe further reading Le dispe ised vi'.b, 
and that the report be printed. 

Mr. Sumner— I will not ol ject to Cuat 
if tbe Siinator from Ohio tbiD is that it is 
proper that we sLctdd on this important 
occasion, dispense with th-j eadin<^. I 
think tbo Senate could not li? ten to any- 
thing of more importance than that accu- 
race andautbeotic report, regarding tbe 
actual condition o! things in tl.eie Strttes. 
Here is an cminc.d citit-en, hst jly a tlajor 
GcQcral in the army o! tbe Us ited States, 
sent or a special ruis'.i.^n by t! u President 
to visit those States and r.-port upon 
their conditit,:i. He b.as raatx his visit, 
not baity, like General Grant, for in- 
Btancc, or some other olliccra or citi^'.ens, 
but a visit occupying tiire, md extend- 
ing through the dilVerent tVates, and be 
has recorrled the results in :.n elaborate 
document. New, sir, if iL-.; (jueetion 
wer.? a trivial oce. or if '<* v ere a tran- 
sitory (iuefition, I would lb ok with the 
Senator froiuOhio, lli.it d li.i 1 better not 
be read. If the Senator insids upon bis 
motion I sb.".!! •".< t ob-eit. 

Mr. bhermtn had no doul. ibi'.ttho re- 
port oi General Hchur/ wai elaborate, 
able and interesting. He would much 
prelev to read it, however, tb m to h ar it 
rer.il, Vacrc there was ccntusion and 
noisf, a-- in tbe Scnatft chirabcr. He 
would ^ay, also, thi\.t it wrs '.inusual to 
read such documents. Inc document 
was usuitlly read to the Seur. c except the 



fi»cov>t:up infamy. 'j.iw... 1 confess,

call -d his jittcntiou to i!, be ..hould riso 
tvnd s;ty th.it he has notlurg to modify, 
nothinj to ipuilify, nothing to ivtract. 1 
have ::;iid all, ptrhnps more than I otybt 
to have said. I abnl! not j^o into any 
disou'sioncf tl-.i-se matters at tho pres- 
ent ttai'^. 

Mr. Snmtfjr I am ioiry that I l.ave 
given pain to my honorable friends ; I 
certainly did not Inteird fo do so. Tbcy 
snggeff that the i|neitioahas Lacn raised 
.13 fo the policy of tho President. I have 
raised no such question, and have e.\- 
prc'-'^ed no opinion in rei^.ird tr, it. The 
Senator from Wir-consin dwells on that 
point an. I reminds the Senate that the 
polii-y of tbe President was not in ques- 
tion. 1 kr.ow i* wt.^ not in question .and 
tberelore exprej-v.! no opinion on it ; 
for when 1 speak in this botly I try tc 
:[u:ik directly to tiie <iucstion. There 
was, then, no <iuestion tUrectly before the 
Senate. Had there been, I should 
have been ready to"meet it. The only 
((uestion wiis on the character ol the doc 
nmcnt read, and that I iharftcteri.;cd as 
:i "vihitc washing document." **• ■ -

message of the President of the United 
States, liv'-n the report o' the Seerc- 
tarv of tlie Treasury, full ot infoimation 
of paramount importance to the country, 
having views atl'eciing Uic g. e*l financial

Mr. Doclittle (Rep., Wis. i— The Sen- 
ator from Massachusetts gav ! e.-tprcssion 
to one remaik which broughi , it seems to 
mo, ininstice to himself, ai; J wLich Lc 
ought to qualify, if not aitog slher to re- 
tract. Speaking of tho u^C! sage just re- 
ceived irotn the Trcsident, h • baid it was 
like the whttew.ishipg me ssa |0 ol Frank- 
lin Pierce to cover ibc trpa.'Wiitions in 
Kansas ; and thr.l tht; *tVatrs in those 
St&tcp Bougat to he covered up aiid white- 
washed by the rtesidcnt. v'iri much 
worse than tho-^e in ivRn;'as. Nov. Mr. 
President, I ihinki'ic l>ena^o.•flomK:''s-

1 ivt ! I trade ..n^ tucli redecl'ca.. an.l do not 
begin Qu iv. Whea I spoka I spoka of a 
document that had bean read ?X the dssk, 
a:id I thar.iclenzed li as I thought it 
ought to ba characterized. My memory 
goes back in this chamber fnvfhf r thtin 
that of many I see about me. 

[remember that ot- cr scene when a 
wbitewashing message did ccj'.e into this 
body from franklin Pierc. We all at 
that tiras called it a whitewashing report, 
and I am not aware that any one then on 
the other side undertook what my honor- 
able friends from Wisoonain and from 
Conn'icticut have undertaken to-day 
Wc ail felt then that Mr. Pierce's message 
was a whitewashing document. I simply 
undertook to-day, after bearing that doc- 
ument read at the deak, to characterize it 
as tbo patriotic party of I800 ch.-.ractcr- 
izcd thi- messag" of tVankba Pierce. 

Mr. Dixoa— i am gi.id tohcar the dis- 
claimer now made by the Senator from 
Massaibasttts. AUiiOiigh he declared 
he had no cxplan-ttion to make, nothing 
to retract, he now says he did not use the 
word in the sense in which it \* always 
understood. Very well. If bo thinks 
tbe word '•whitewasbing" a proper term 
tp apply to the message of the President 
and means nothing by it, I an» content 
to allow him to give his own detinition. 1 
had understood lb.; word to mean what 
I have indicated, and what the common 
sense of most men nnderstands by it. 
Cut as the Senator is skilled in lexicog- 
rapby. I will not object to bis applying 
bs own definition ol the term generally 
considered so ollensive. 

Mr. Trumbull (Rep., 111.) rote to ask 
that this debate cease. It was not in 
their province to criticise or remark upon 
tho e.xpresaions of opinion which Senators 
had thought proper" to indulge in. Hut 
it did se»m to him that a controversy had 
arisen which was not cabulatcd for the 
public interest or welfare. 

The question wa.'' tber tlfttiMi by the 
Chair to be on the motion of Mr ober- 
man to print the report ol < ien-^ral o'.'huri 
with the otbr-rdoei'meot", «nd i: nnsrsr- 
ricd.

The Pi-escats niade in the city on Monday 
were probably fai la esic-ese of former years, 
both in number and value. The children of 
:^Il cia»^es «eemed to have been overwhelmed 
with the many nice things which their old 
tricnd, Saata Clans, so kindly bronght to 
gladden their hearts. Even the smallest 
■tockmg which hang to the chimney comer 
did not fail to attract his attention, and the 
muniScenco with which he lavished bis gifta 
upon ail, betokens a heart full oi eenerosity 
lad love.

cnrred was the Sunday School fe:>tivals. Suae

At the ccnc^asion cfthe reading of the Su-

staad for tlu right," after which was the reci- 
tation ijf verses by the children. The excr- 
raes, throushont, were interspersed with sing- 
ing. We were much pleased with the pro- 
5cijnc7 o.* the »cbooi in this respect. 

General Murihali was present and delivered 
a brief address to the children. He said that, 
long years ago, before many of these little 
boys and girls v, ere bom, he was a member of 
this school, and this fact made it all the more 
plea.ast for him in meeting with them to- 
day : a-i he could feel that he was one of their 
nsmber. He believed the Sabbath School 
one ( f th« greatest instrumentalities for good 
that wc have, and if we were to be deprived 
cf either, we could bcKer affoi^ to dispense 
with the Church than wi'h the Sabbath School. 
He felt that tLc imprcssioas which ne had re- 
ceived ia the Sabbath School had taken a 
deeper hold ur-^n bis mind than t'ao^e trom 
almost aay other (iourrc, and whateve.- suc- 
cess be bad achie'i od In life, he attri)>ated 'in 
a very large degrc<? to the influences of tbe 

SaLbatb School. The General coneloded his 

remarks by withing them ail a merry Chrbt- 

mas and happy Xev.- Year. 
Rev. Mr. Mattocks wished them all a merry 

Christmas : three hundred of them ' the l:irg-

for the year 



Mr. Freseott said that ihis ^ as the oldest 
school in St. Paul, having been established in 
IS47. He read several extracts from the rec- 
ords kept between the years 1 151 and 1S54. 
The attendance at that early day was cf course 
qnlte limited, end bat tws or three persons 
took any interest wha:ever la tl e scboo]. One 
of the leaders of the school at that Jay, said 
Mr. Prescott. was deacon Caveuder, who was 
present and could (peak for hiriself. 

The Deacon came for ward anl was. greeted 
with a round of applause by th i scholars. He 
gave a very interesting histot ' of th e'early 
days of the school. When be came lo Sair. 
Paul, in the early part of U4S, the schooj 
had been started by Miss Bis lop (now Mrs. 
McConkey) in a little log cabin on Ueaeh-sti 
The first visit he made to the sc lool, hu fjunu 
three white children, two hi If-brceds and 
three t'ull blooded Sioux, la attendance. He 
gave many interesting inctdtuts connected 
with this school, but our spice forbids us 
noticing them further. 

The priies were then distributed tu the de' 
serving scholar?, after which the Christmas 
packages which were piled up ir a Lag; pyra- 
mid on the platform, were d.st: Ibuted among 
tbe children. The church was crowded with 
members of the sehocl and 'isitors, all of 
whom seemed ;o enjoy tbe oi easion. Like 
all the others it wa^ a pleasant and .oyous 
affair, and will long be remetnhered \v the 
children of the school.

This is a work by Misb Edmunds, the talent- 
ed lady who did snch splendid service in the 
Army of the Potomac, fearlessly exposing 
her lift) in Ler devotion to the brave boys 
who la]- weltering in their blood on tbe field 
of caraage. Her style as a writer proves that 
she is not a novelist, but, as Mrs. H. B. Stowe 
says of her, "one who has something to say 
aixdsaytit." i^omo passages are singularly 
beautiful find tender, and many nnnsed to 
weep will feci their eyes moisten as they read 
of the saffenags of those who so nobly laid 
down their lives for their country's good. The 
work is sold by Fubscrlptica. Mr. Sinclair, 
who has Just returned from the tented field,

Treasury printers propose to eitablish indu-

Only about a dozen othcers remain ot the

were becoming daily more unpopular, and 
their withdrawal would be Immciliatcly fol-

matter by lorce of arms. 

Gen. Mfjia's complaint is the old one, of aid 
and comfort given to Mexican Republicans by 
Gen. Wcit/cl's troops. 

Gen. AViitzel says he Is ordered to say that 
her<»after when any garrison under Mcjia's 
command is in a stato^of seige no supplies of 
any kind will be permiitcd to be sent to such 
garrison from this side. 

Gen Sheridan coi^sidered that it would be 
less of a violation of neutrality against the le- 
gitimate outhority in Mexico to send powder 
'o such garrLson, and tbat ha is ordered to 
stop all intercourse with any garrison during 
the progress of a siege, except that which hu- 
uianit}' shall dictate. 

The correspondcul further say^ thut the 
probabilities of an active interference l»y the 
United States in the affairs of Mexico, is the 
one thing thought of at Brownsville, and the 
impression is very strong that this will be de- 
layed but a short time. Certainly the tone of 
the authorities is such as would warr.int the 
conclusion that no great pains will be taken 
to avoid a mpiure. 

Tho rimes' Mexico correspondent says. 
General Diiz is carrying all before him. and 
the whole Siato of AjoKa is in arms against 
tho Iraperi ilists. The Liberals are masters of 
the whole coast between Vera Cruz and Tu- 
shan, also south of Vera Cruz tho Austrians 
hivo met several defeats. 3Iarshal Bracane 
writes X'ejia that the northern frcnilei- is un- 
der the double protection of tbe Emperor of 
Mexiw and tint Emperor of the French.

A startling case of attempted murder, and 
rubseqnent attcmpied Nuicide, transpired in 
Brooklyn iasl evening. The parties in the 
affiir have hitherto occupied the highest posi- 
tions in the tstiiiia'ion of their friends, and 
that of the lady is s ill unimpaired. Their 
names arc W. li. Kuss, a book keeper in the 
ofHcc of tlic Mc-.ican national loan company 
in this ciiy, and -Miss Frances M. Dayton, a 
native of Washington, Litchfield coun y, 
Conn. , . . , 

The former a lover of Ihe latter, thinking he 
bad licen deceived, or made insane fjy some 
unkiiowu cause, while walking with the lady 
near her residence, suddenly drew a revolver 
and tired four shots at her, wounding her se- 
verely in tho head, and then turning the 
weapon upon himself fired two shots into his 
own skull. 

Thinking the woman dead he then ran to 
the river and threw bimse'f into the water, 
but afterwards escaped from it, and was finally 
arrested. When taken into custody he bad 
the weapon still in his possession, and his 
wounds were bleeding profusely. The young 
ladv is not expected to survive. Rnss was 
conveyed to the Hospital, and bi:i wounds are 
not coiisiilcrcd dangerous. 

New YoKK, Dec. 2(3, 

Fruncii Smith, the merchant who was shot 
at his residence iu Brookly n, at 4 o'clock Sun- 
day morning, by a burglar, was in a comfort- 
able condition Ust night. No positive clue to 
the assas&ic has b2cu ascertained up to last 
evening. 

Dr. Christopher Ilelez, an eminent surgeon 
»nd physician lor many years past, died .Mid- 
denly Saturday cvenin;?, at the Ncw York 
Hospital, of convulsions. 

There is couiiderablo excitemiiitin the city, 
owing to the promuU'ation by the Si-natoiiai 
part.'.'uf Fenians of eeitain documents boar- 
log iipon the present Fenian troubles. A Ict- 
tei obtHined from Jnmcs Stephens, obtained 
a: tho Dublin trial, denominates O'Mahony 'S 
a drag chain and a stumbling block. Ihc 
movement for a compromise is going on, and 
the rank and file begin to favor ilie retirement 
both of O'Mahony and the Senate. 

The condition ol Wm. H. Ru;s, tho would- 
be murderer and suicide, who sho: Miss Fan- 
nie Dayton|in Brooklyn on Saturday niiht, is 
quite la'orable to recovery. Miss Dayton's 
condition is very low. She Avill hardly re- 
cover. 

Christmas was ecle'oraied with great fervor 
in this city yesterday. Christmas dinners and 
and presents were given the children of the 
Howard Mission and Home for 11 tie Wan-

Mr. John W. Farmer opened his doors to the 
widows and children ot the dead Union sol-

also given by Institutions of charity in Brook-

—At a meeting of the Hudson Bay 
Comp.^ny on tte 2Stli ult., the Governor, Sir 
Kdmund Head. suweU that the reason no over- 
ture for the transfer of the north-western ter- 
ritor' to the Canadian Government, had Xxta 
made as proposed by the under Secratary of 
State, was that they preferred nJt to depre- 
ciate their property, and therefore awaited 
OTorturcs from tho Canadl.in authorltiee. Mr 
Watkiu, M.P.. thought the property of the 
company was wurth a million pounds sterling 
and suggestcu that there tvas no reason why 
the company »boald not fotiad n new State 
instead ot selliug oat. 

—lien. Carl Schurtz's report of his 
mission to tho South has been published. The 
General says the loyalty of that Bcciiun U of 
a decidedly ncgfttiTC charac'cr. consisting in 
snbmbslon to a necessity ; that" tic slaves 
havj been e!vancii;atcd in point of form, but 
ftec lalMir has not been put in place of f la- 
very in point of fact ; that tho Ircedmen, al- 
thoug'J no longer the slaves of iodividnals. 
are stili tho slaves of society ; and that, to 
avert future disaster, national anthority 
should still renin control at the South, and 
tho freedmcn bo endowed with certain roeas- 
r.res of political power. 

—The HousM of Ropresentativea at 
Washington has taken up the great question 
of the working Oassef. Mr. Xiblack intro- 
duce.! mto that body, and obtained the pas- 
sage of the following resoiatioa ; 

Resolved. That the committee on the Judi- 
ciary be instructed to inquire into the proprie- 
ty Kod expeillency of providing by law for 
tbe adoption of what is known as the ' eight

while fer 800 miles sUU west of tbe Missis- 
sippi there are immense tracts of the most

NEwYeRK, Dec. 23.— The report of Carl 
Shurz on the condition of the South was jmb- 
lished this morniog. It Is quite lengthy, Ail- 
ing sixteen closely printed columns of the 
Tribune. Gen. Schurz ssys at the time he 
went South, he found the people recov»iing 
from the peculiar state of mind In which Ifte 
surrender of Lee bad plunged them. Be 
says the public raind was so despondent iBat 
ifrc-adrais.iunat some future time, nw.er 
whatever conditions, had been promised, it 
would have been looked upon as a favor J te 
most uncompromising rel)elB proposed flrsi 
leaving the country. The masses remame 4 m 
astaie of fearful expectancy. 

He savB he now finds tour classes wuom he 
characu^rizes as follows : Isi. Those who-aj- 
though having yielded submission to the Ka- 
tional Uovemmcnt only when obliged to do 
so, have a clear perception of the Irreverslbla 
changes which have been produced by tb«! 
war, and honestly endeavored to accommo 
date themselves to the new order of things. 

2d Those whose principle object is to have 
the states without delay re^toiod tc ihejr p.w,- 
tion and influence in the Union and the peo- 
ple of the States to absolute control of 
iheir homo concerns. They are fe'^^JV"^ 
order to obtain that olyect. lor -"y of "f "J*'' 
concession that will not prevent them Jroin 
rrraiiging things to "nit their taste as soon aa 
that object Is obtained. 

3d. lncotrigir>les, who still indulge ta 
Bwagwr which was so customary before snd 
during the war. and still hope for a tine 
when the so-called Southern Conf.edcracy 
will achieve its independence. I'l'* <^'*** 
consists mostly of young men. and the loit- 
erers of the towns and idlers of the country. 
4'h. The multitude ot persons who Laveuo 
dcttnite idea about the circumstances under 
whkh they live, and about tho CJUise tfcey 
have to follow, whose intellects are weak, but 
whose prejudices and impulses are sttcog. 
„ud «h.. are apt to be earned a ong by th-se 
who know how to appeal to the latter. 

All these classes, he says.are agreed that 
further resistance jto the power of ttie Nation- 
al Government is useless, and submission to 
iU authority a matter ot necessity. All mo^ e- 
ments in favor of separation from «be IJniof 
have therefore beeu practicilly abandoned, 
and resist-nnco to our military forces on U:at 
score has ceased. 

The General thinks that the loyalty pro- 
duccd by the irresistible pressure of torco is 
decidedly of a negative character. He myes 
proofs in letters of federal «?eneras and oth- 
ers of outrages committed by tho late rebel?, 
Md of their hostile attitude if the troops are 
withdrawn. He introduces testimony froin 
officers of the Freedmen's Bureau, and dwells 
at considerable length upon statements ot the 
negroes and tho sentiments ot the wanes

remarks, he says the :!area ar.; emancipated

been put in the place of slavery m poiCt ot 
fact, and now in the critical period ot trans- 
ition, tha power which originated the revolu- 
tion is expected to turn over its whole fotnro 
dcvMkpment to another power which, from 
the iTeginning. was honile toita spirit, leaving

™The history of the world will be searched In 
vain i"or a proceeding similar to this, which 
did not lead either to violent and rapid reac 
tion. or to most serious tronbie and civil uis 
order. It is believed it will prove lar more 
dangerous tor the integrity ot lo)*! s«";8o;^; 
emment, it national control in the Soa'ii,^

soon, it na-r bo rendered necessary agaiii 
in future, when by ccntinitins it but a limited 
time, for all such luture the necessity may be 
obviated. . - i ^ 

He advocates tte encour^jgcment oi educa- 
tion among the fretdmen, and in his conclu- 
Bion makes tho following remarAS : "ihe 
loyalty of the masses and rao-H ol the ioatt- 
ers of the Southern people consists in sub- 
mission to ft necessity, tinancipation of the 
slaves »s submitted to only in so far lU ^attcl 
Slavery ia form could not !» kept up, Otat al- 
though the ireedman is no longer cjnsidered 
the property of an individual master, he is 
considered iheslavc of society, and all inde- 
pendtnt Stile legislation will show a tendency 
to make him such. 

The practical altemrta on the part o« the 
SoutheVn people to deprive ll»« P^gro of bis 
rights as a freedman. may result m a bloody 
collision, and will certainly plunge Southern 
society into restless flnc:nations and anan- 
archial situation. The problem wi I be ▼ery 
much facditated by enabling all loyal and 
free labor eitrocnts of the South to exercise a 
healthy influence upon legislation. It wU 
hardly be possible to secure frecdmen against 
an oppressive class-legislation and private 
persecu.ion. unless he be endowed with a 
certain measure of political power.

_\I:i. Hscksher teatified that Mrs. Snrong su- 
•ci that Edward (her husband's brother) had 
-to:ited her, after indnctng her to enter his 
room, and held a pistol tc her head threaten- 
ing to mak« her a dend w oni«n if »he should 
scream. 

ThcfollowiDgis ai-riun of Mrs. Hecks- 

hcrs's dcpo8iti>^n . 

So far .IS 1 can rccoUeei .-he (.Mrs. Strong) 
t..ldnie that the beginning of the trouble be- 
tween her hnsbana Rndhcr.-elf originated in 
^,3 wrr— that Mr. Edward Strong had been 
tery kind to her; that she bad been unhappy 
vnce her retarn from Europe in her relaUons 
•^iihherhnsband. that Mr. Edward Strong 
had shown her kindness she might have ex- 
pect-»d from her hu£o.»nd ; that she received 
thein with ;ho kno^vlertpe of every one , there 
wis actt'cg vrrcn'; in her ihoaghts or mind ; 
•hat she h.id a feeling of interest for Mr. Ed- 
ward Stronc, or love or ailection she did not 
■•env • • • '• that after br&ikfast on one oc- 
"asibn Mr. Edward Strong said " Mary. I 
want lo speak to vca m your room; they 
often went to each other's rooms; 
when he got into the room he lock- 
ed the door. £.nd, pointing a loaded pistol 
at her, saiJ, " Mary, if you scream you are a 
dead woman ," she replied, " You would not 
shoot me, Edward ;" he said " As soon as that 
^v on the wait ." she then told mo that he re- 
peatedly threatened her with violence ; that 
he alwavs had a pistol, or. perhaps, more lon- 
rectl*-. o'flen had a pistol by him; that on cue 
occal-ion, at Newport, she went out to drive, 
rather at the mstance of her J"*''""^-. "";? 
thought that she was disagreeable, oi that it 
was «"--"'">"-'• '"'"*' «": •'"' in confer- 
'tie vervangrr, verr mat n excited,^ wdof- 



a resident of this coanty, and wh > hks 
bMO hopelesaly insane (or nearly t hirty 
years, was sent for by her husband in 
California. Accompanied by a dan;^ hter- 
in-law, they left hero and proceed id on 
the journey by the steamer. When out 
about four days from New York, a most 
violent storm arose, which lasted three 
days, seriously threatening the destruc- 
tion of the steamer and all on board. 

When, however, the storm alwted, 
what was the surprise and delight if the 
daopihterto fend that the old lady bad 
suddenly recovered her mind, ati I was 
perfiectly sane— though she was at a loss 
to know how •^he came to be in ^u:h a 

Silace. and the circumstances in wh: h she 
onnd herself on awakening from ; uch a 
long sleep of the int»"ltectuil faeulti j«. 

On arriving at San Francaco what 
was the astonishment p1 her b'lsb .nd to 
meet her whom he bad not seen k r nine 
years, and whom he deemed hopel'tasly a 
maniac, sound and well, and joyfully rec- 
ognizing him I This was a year aj o. 

Letters recently received by her riends 
here state that there has been no return 
of the disease whatever, and that she is 
well and entirely cured. Is there sioother 
such a case of cure on record ?

Tout ccrrebp^adcat has been neither dead 
"ortleeping.notwithitanding his protracted 
•Hence, bnt sovwal causes combined have 
prcTectel hi^ '-'-iiial weekly items; among 
^hich mar I-' nicatioacd, the nncertainty at- 
tending the transmission of mails between 
this point and tlie saintly city. Before the 
day of railroads we wero iometimcs, though 
not often, twenty-f-ur hours without news 
from the eapital-rince the eslablUhment of 
raiiwiv couimuuication, eight days have in- 
terren'ed in the receipt v-: mail.^. If this state 
ol things i^ i» rou'.inue tUrwgh the winter, 
W3 shall rcjrr t the disapvcarance of Bur- 
banli'scouLc-, which never kept us quite so 
long in sa.spen*s as to the welfare of our 
friends only fifry-u.nr miles distant. I am 
notof the cUsiof habitual grumblers, but to 
receive ;ix or teron daiiics once a week, and 
be witliont nc>vs for th-j rest of the time, sug- 
gests tftc propriety of the establishment of 
some other mc.hod of transporting the mails 
in case ot e dct'.ntion oi the cars. 

Kipht glaii am I thht wo can at last anjoy a 
resrolar old fa-shs-jn-d Minnesota winter, clear, 
njld and frostv. AV bat matters it though the 
thermometer stan..L: at 2.3 deg. below zero at 
sunrise, our forciij arc large enough to keep 
ever? h'-arthstonc warm, and the hearts of 
Minnesofiai:s in this vicinity, at least, are 
warm enough to keep every otherwise desti- 
tnte hearthstone gratuitouslyts-upplied. and as 
to th': ' " "■"-' • t the <jenery what can surpass 
the E! t ol the landscape clad in its 

iicsi- ..• . ...I'-lptirfi white mantle of snows, 
1 imiigmc It • .vnon)y hz a mind of natural 
▼erdancy that cm urefer a climate where ev- 
crlasticg green is the hue of the landscape to 
^jne like ours where nature's f.icc and tashions 
change with the >cabonj. 

A case of subbing occurred in our streets 
on Tacidav evenin? !.^5t between « couple ot 
gcandinavians. Althon:;h there was some 
blooJ spilled there was no loss 01 life. Ihe 
man stabbed received an ugly wound in the 
throat, .lust missing the jugiar, but was on his 
feet early in the morning and I understand 
rompromiscd by agreeing with hia assailant 
not to appear asainct him if he would pay the 
doctor far drcssinj,' his wound. 1 believe 
it it. gtsaerally understood that sUbbing 
amoag Korwc^'ians when intoxicated is 
r.Jlie a comrp.on and cheap method of settling 
liheir difflcuUios, probably on the supposition 
that! a little blood letting is necessary to cool 
tbe heat of passion. In ilie murder caso that 
was tried hurc last ^prinl; tbe friends and rel- 
atives of the mau kilted, I am informed, en- 
deavored to toropromiie and release the pris- 
oner if he would pay the doctor's bill and the 
funeral exptnsts of the deceased, butthe maj- 
esty ol the law interfered, with such an amica- 
ble arrangeaicnt, and raised the price of such 
amuseiueats, although not to such an extent 
as to prohibit lurther indulgence. 

Kotivithiitanuins the prevalence of cold 
weather, business is brisk with our merchants, 
and the streets so tilled with teams as to br 



my crime.' but my prayer to God is that it 
may be the last ever committed en this 

He was abmptly stopped, and s. lently bow- 
ed his bead for a short spaco of tl ne. 

Under the gallows beam, w th the rope 
dangling agminst the back of bis head be 
raised his voice and !ang ;•! clear, un- 
troubled tone, unaccompanii iJ by my 
other person.

which was as follows : 

' Blessed Bible, how 1 love it 
How it does my bosom cheer , 
What has earth like this to oi'er, 
Oh ! what stores of wealth art here. 
Man was lost and doomed to sorrow ; 
Not one ray of light or bliss 
Could he from earth's treasu es borrov, , 
•Till his way was cheered by ihis." 
While he sang those about hini stood 
in astonished, almost breathless silence. 
Words arc not needed to depict tie feel- 
ing with which men maat v: jw a fellow- 
man, thus singing at the very hreshold of 
tbe awful portals of eternity, kt if uncon- 
scious of his dreadful position, and un- 
tainted by the blackest of crimes.

At ei^ht minutes piist ele. i.n oVlotk, 
the rope Bupporting the woiglit vras cut, 
and the awful presence of D ::ith was in- 
voked. So violent was tbo ] irk given to 
the body by the falling cf tbo lauge weight 
and the length of the slack r- pe allowed, 
that it waa to.-^aed up to a he |;ht of fully 
six feet from the ground aud tettlcd back 
to four feeU As was feared from the in- 
artistic arrangement of the knot, it 
slipped, so that instead of bc'n?, as it 
should huve been, under anti a little be- 
hind the left ear, it wad at thi back of the 
poor wretch's neck. Harpe ' had an im- 
mensely strong neck, aver,' bull neck, 
The night that the mob hindlcd him, 
twenty men found him in ber , chaiced to 
the bedstead, put a rope round his neck, 
and dragged him out so violentlv a? to 
wrench the bedstead to pieces. 

Again and again tbe loot of the bed- 
steid caught in some obsir ictioa, and 
the twenty men pulled with all their 
strength on that rope and • till did not 
break his neck, aud their si veral hang- 
ings ot him, that night, would have bro- 
ken a cord of ordinavv U' cks. From 
this it was expected that ev m uiider the 
most favorable circnmstano s, his death 
struggle wotdd bo very seve e, and these 
e.\pectations were not disapjiointed. For 
full three minntcs after he was rc.iscd 
from the earth, he writhed in tbe most 
feartnl contortions. Then comparative 
stillness ensued lor a loinnle, und again 
another severe struggle a minute's 
duration. Gradually the ii.uscular con

Senator McDoasal on a Bender 

Correspoadeace Cincinnati Commercial. 

WASHiKGToy, Dec. 13.— Tho eAcen- 
tricitiea of great men have, ttin« out of 
mind, afforded themes (or the historian 
and biographer. They constitate the 
charm ol PIutArch, the spice of Levy, 
and the best points of Irring, •while they 
relieve the tedium that but for them 
would consign Boswell to the oblivion of 
nncQt pages. Of all the men in official 
station, whose e.xcentricities excite the 
amusement of those who witness them, 
the Hon. Senator McDoogal, of Califor- 
nia, is unquestionably entitled to the 
first rank. As I was walking along Penn- 
sylvania avenue, the other day, I observ- 
ed this distinguished gentleman riding in 
an open carriage, in company with three 
friends, to jolly spirits of own species, 
and a shaggy looking terrier. Tbe lat- 
ter had tbe front seat of the barouche, all 
to himself, and was vigorously barking 
at his eenatorjal master, who sat between 
his two compauions on tbe rear cushions, 
The Senator was taking the world easy. 
His head was covered with a bat, which, 
if erected on a stick, weuld have passed 
for a family umbrella, and his feet were 
spread all over the vehicular conveyance, 
in which be had started out to see the 
sights. He had jubt purchased a pair of 
purple kids, and rather than trouble 
nimself with the ordeal of putting them on 
had entrusted this labor to bis associates, 
each of whom had taken possession of 
one Senatorial band, and was energeti- 
cally applying the chiromatic adornments, 
while tbo owner of hand and glove alike, 
was entreating them in the language of 
Gen. Grant to "go in,'" and "get the d— d 
things on, or he'd throw them out of the 
carriage." The sight was inspiring, I 
need not say, to all who look to the hon- 
orable body, in which Mr. McDougal has 
a yea and a nay that may decide a ques- 
tion of war or peace, cr involve the ex- 
penditure of uutotd millions out of the 
naUonal treasury. "What a great man he 
would be, if be wouldn"t drink," and 
what an honest man Jack Shepafd would 
have been if he hadn't been given to 
stealing.

The Fenian Funds> 

From the New York World, 16th. 

From tho facts which have recently 
come into our possession we believe we 
are justified in making the following state- 
ment with reference to the finances of 
the Fenian Brotherhood i 

Raceipts per month at the time of 

the O'Mahoney-Koberts quarrel. $ 150,000 
Total receipts during the past sev- 

en years .5,000,000 

In addition to flvo millions which had 
been received, it wss confidently expected 
that twenty million dollars would be re- 
alized by the sale ot the new Fenian 
bonds. Il will b3 an interesting poii4 
for the Congress which meets in .January 
to find oat what has become of tie five 
millions, as well as what disposition is 
made of the one hundred and fifty thou- 
sand which is received monthly.

It ts impossible lo enjoy tlio bloom of health 
and vivacity ot spirits, unless tho Menses are 
regular as to the ume, the quantity, and quality. 
Wlien they are obstructed nature makes Iier ef- 
forts to obtain for It sonic other outlet, and unless 
these efforts of nature aro assisted, tko patient 
usually experiences Dpspondency, Nervousness, 
sntiilnatly, COKisOMI'TION assumee it." eway, 
and prematurely terminates a miserable lifo. i 

Do not suffer fromthesi IrrcguUrities when 
an investment of one dollar in Lyon's Periodical 
Drops will regulate and restore natore to Ita 
healthy couje ; and 

DO NOT BF ISTPO.SKD UPON

by those who havefotherpreparatlons, which they 
desire to ualm off upon the vtrengtli of the pop- 
ularity of my Drop". But when the Druggist 
vou apply to lias not got thi'm, either make htm 
buy them for yon. o' olae i-nolose one dol'ar to 
the nearest general wholfsulo agent, who will re- 
turn you a bottlo by rt-turn Express. 

See that the naiiie of Jno. L. Lyon Is written 
upon the directions vtliich are wrap|»ed around

fore, beware of counterleits. They are for sale

This admirable preparation is a most 
efficient remedy for Baldness. It pre- 
vents the hair from fallitig of? or turning 
gray, and causes it to grow luxuriantly, 
making it very soft, glossy and beautiful, 
restoring it to its natural color. It also 
frees the head from dandrufT and cure* 
all diseases of the scalp. A few appli- 
cations will convince the most skeptical 
of the truth cf the above statements.

romosantkr ia-chief, left the city at 10 o'clock 
ycsterdaT inornlng, for the new gold diggings 
of VermuUoa Lako. This is the first organ- 
ufd bvidy cf men to depart fcr this new El 
Dorado, and tlieir career will be watched with 
much interest bv oar citizens. Lcavmg at this 
season of the year to go into a wild and un- 
MOitled eoantry , inhabitad only by the savage 
ai>ory^\nt, t'aey must necesssarily encounter 
many hardslips, and perhaps be compelled 
to brare many ilaDger*. The company Is 
composed of men who wil' shrink from none 
cf ihsse, tud who are certainly deserving of 
mach prsuse for the enterprising spirit which 
they have ncauileitcd ia teiag the first to go 
forward to open up this new mineral region. 

Tbe train ccnsisied of four ■'ads, eaeh 
dimwa by two yoke of oxen, and one unique 
looking c:»' which is to be used as a cooking 
and sleepiug department. This car is 18 feet 
lorg a;:d G fv.ct wide, and is well adapted for 
the purpose for vrbicb it is to be n^ed. They 
uUo hard an amonitioa wsgon, a very necM- 
8:rT accompaniment of sach an expedition.

Mr. Warner showed his appreciation of tbe 
roirplimen: by giving an oyster supper to the 
geserons donors, at Hall & McKinney's on 
Cbristmns evening. Delicious champagne 
and the be«t of sparkling Catawba were fur- 
nished in abuadanc*, and a jolly good tiae 
was the result. 

Mr. Waruer is a lliithfnl offlcer, rnd this 
tOiten ci rtg.rd is the highest evidence of 
the esSetm .n t\ nich he is held b'«' those ^ho

They call lots of respectable gentlemen to

man down at the Court Iloaso who h.is been 
senteiicud to stay locked up till spring. But

be the greatest. It was no nsnsual thing to 
observe the lines of our men close to tho

He did not say that bo would interfere; but 
neither did he commit hioisolf to the opposite 
line of action. However pressed by Mr. Wil- 
son in this direction, he would not give tbe as- 
urance desired of him. That Le would have 
made a formal disclaimer of a purpose to med-

Nk'"; Yohjc, Dec. 27. 

^Hfecial to Timet, Washington. Dec. 26.]— 
Secretary Stanton, in reply to the Senate res- 
olution, states that no one has been employed 
by the War Department who has not taken 
iho oath pre scri'jed by Congress, except those 
who wero appointed Provisional Govcrnort of 
Sta es recently, who have received no com- 
pensation for their services cut of tbe contin- 
gent fund. The War Department, at the same 
rate, allowed Andrew Johnson, of Tannesse e, 
under his appointment of March 31st, 1S63, 
viz : three thousand dollars per annum ; W. 
H Holden. Provisional Governor of North 
Carolina, $186 ; B. F. Perry, Provisional Gov. 
ern<ir of South Carolina, S750; Lewis E. 
Parsons, Provi'^ional Governor of .\lal)dTi«, 
81,000; Jas. Johnson, Provisional Oovornor 
of Georjiia. 81,000; Dr. Francis Lieber, Chiif 
of Bureau of rebel archives i* the only fffl< e 
filled not authorized by law. It was exptcti-d 
that the obvious necessity of the office ronid 
be recognized by Congress. 

J. Morris, union r.-fugee, while travdina 
from Texas to Missouri, was robbed cf 8800 
in gold by guerrillas, und he i.ub.«eqiiently 
has served as a nnl^n s< out ard tp.v under 
Gen.<i. Curti", Grant and Dodge, receiving pay 
of 8100 per month. Alterwardo b« raised 
and commanded a compuny of c ivalr.< . nnd 
was taken prisontr near j^tianta. He offered 
a Confederate oflScer $700 to secure his re- 
lease. Gen. Grant recommended th«t the 
claim be paid, but tbe committee on olaims, 
alter deliberating, made the following report; 
It is of opinion that tts claim presents no 
sufficient ground for relief. If allowed it will 
afford a precedent for paving all the damages 
androbbenes committed by guerrillas during 
the rebellion, and should, if su^ined, tarnish 

Ian example for reimbursing Fri:oncrs of war 
for all sams expended to procure their release 
and will etn^jra- o in its scopo officers and 
privates. J 

The application if adopted may lead to cx^ 
penditcre of immense sums, and possibly. In 
bomo cases, to payment of largs sttais for tbe 
ransom ot an ofiicer or private which may in 
some cases amount to considerable more than 
the services of the petitioner were worth. The 
committee therefore recommended that tbe 
claim of J. Morris ba rejected.

The Heralds Washirgton correspondent 
says the Chilian Minister, at Washington, has 
received Information of the protest of his gov-

this decision is carried into effect the severest 
retaliatory measures will be resorted to by the 
Ohilians.

From the Chicago Tiibace, 2jtk. 

A terrible tragedy occurred on the morning 
of yesterday on \Vest Lake street, between 
DespUincs and Union. Six men ia the prime 
of life were stricken down in mortal agony 
by the e»cape ot gas from a piut in their sleep- 
ing room. Five were found dead, and the 
other so near the edge of the tomb that his 
recovery is very doubtful. 

Six men retired to rest on Saturday night, 
tue time ranging from eleven o'clock till a lit- 
tle past midnight. At right o'clock yesterday 
morning, breafefast being ready below, the 
borders were summoned, and after waiting a 
whde without any of the occupants of that 
room making their appearance, the proprietor 
went up to hasten them. A knock at the door 
being unahswered, and a second and a third 
lime meeting with no response, the door was 
opened. A terrible stench met the intruder, 
forcing him to beat a hasty retreat— tho i-oom 
was full of gas. 

Through the opened door the poisonoos 
motcrLii niMied, ailing tbe whole upper pto- 
ry, and presently the ordinary atmosphere 
I had^aintd admission sufficient to allow of 
I the rooiu btiug explored. A horrible sight 
met tbu view. Six inanimate forms lay ia 
the stillness of the grave, their laces swoilea, 
their mouths filled with froth. All are dead ! ; 
No not all: A slight movement is percepti- j 
ble in out of those bodies, a hurried, shcrt, 
yet slowly perceptible breathing in that sti- 
fling atmo;phere. He is seized and carded 
out into another room and medical attend- 
ance sumrajoed. He lives ! 

Subsequent search revealed the avnue 
through which the destroying angel had en- 
tescd to do his fell work. In the centre of 
that low ceding the end of a gas pipe protru- 
ded into the room, closed in the absence of 
tho " fixtures " The careless workman who 
had undertaken to block up the end, hud put 
OB a cap much too large, slipping over quite 
freely, without any fit of the threads ot the 
saews by which the joints of the piping are 
uitially connected. . - . 

The workmen bad anplicd tbe red flux, de- 
pending on that entirely to prevent the escape 
of the gas. The cap dropped off during tue 
night, and through that litilc cylinder, scarce 
half an inch in internal diameter, the noxious 
vapor poured in, mingling wiih the already 
hisbly carbonized atmosphere of the room, 
aud quickly causing asphyxia. The names 
of the deceased are Charles John Biacbsiae, 
.A.dulph Blachsiac, James McCanliff, John 
Louis Lout.

were hitched, mostly on tho cast side of the

the early settlers oi Stillwater, and to him we 
are indebted for a large share of the growth 
and development of the place. Tbe Sawyer 
Hou«e and the Sawyer block on Mam street, 
which bear his name, wero mainly erected by 
him, aud wdl remain for many years as evi-
