New York, Auga9t 21. Tbe Richmond corres

State to prevent vagrancy. The Christian Commis
sion agency has been broken up.

New York, August 81. The Herald's Richmond
correspondent says the people of that city on Tuesday
called the Union meeting for which tbey had been
for some time previous making extensive prepara
tions. All the epeakers were men who six months
ago were prominent supporters of Jeff Davis. The
resolutions adopted express indignation at the impu
tation on the part of the Northern people and jour
nals, that recanting secessionists are not sincere in
taking the oath of allegiance. Pronounce such im
putations utterly groundless and false; profess the
warmest attachment to the National Government;
acquiesce in the result of the war, including the
abolition of slavery.
New Yobk, September 1. The Herald's special
dispatch says Wertz placed in the hands of his coun
sel, yesterday, documentary evidence to prove that

the rebel Secretary of War. The records of. tbe
Andereonvi'Je Prison are missing, and it is believed
to be for the purpose of preventing their being used
against Wertz. The Clerk iu the Quartermaster's
Department, in whose hands they were last seen, has
been placed nnder arrest.
New York, September 1. The last mail from
England brings a report, from good authority, that
the Great Eastern will be at once dispatched from
Sheeruess to Newfoundland. The object of this trip

which, it is hoped, will be recovered by means of
grapples and buoys. The promoters of this enter
prise in England are determined to lay another cable
next year, making use of the recovered portions of
the old one.
New York, September 1st. The Times' special
despatch' 6ays both the President and Secretary of
War are decidedly in favor of a trial before a civil
Court, and at tbe earliest practicable moment, of
Jeff. Davis. The chief difficulty has been to find the
proper tribunal. The President looks with favor on
'Knoxville, Tenn., where Davis committed an overt
act of treason by inciting insurrection, in a speech to
the array. In case he is tried by Chief Justice Chase,
Norfolk, Va., will be selected. This is what Davis
It may be further said whenever the trial takes
place, that Beujamin Butler, in conjunction with the
Attorney General, will take a prominent part as tbe
public prosecutor. The whole matter has been under
consideration at" a recent Cabinet meeting where the
question of the mode and place was as far decided as
to render the trial an event near at hand.

It is stated in the Sunderland Scotland Herald,
that the toad lately found by some quarryman at
Hartepool, and announced to be six thousand years
old is not a myth. The Rev. Robert Taylor, of St.
Hilda's Parsonage, states that the toad is still alive,

below the surface of the earth, and that it differs in

and papers were ignited and consumed. And such

" It was here in this city, iu this very hotel,
through which I passed to reach this spot, that Gen.
Grant and myself met over a year since; and in that
very room we laid down the maps and studied out tbe
campaigns which ended this war. I had been away
down in Mississippi attending to a little matter there,
and when Gen. Grant and myself ended our confer
ence here, wc separated, he to go to Richmond and I
to Atlanta, and the result has been just as we plan

While the crowd were pressing forward to shake
bands with General Sheridan at a railroad depot on
a recent occasion, the General observed a small boy
making tremendous exertions to reach him. The
crowd was so dense that the little fellow did not
make much progress, so the General stepped off the
car into the crowd, and making bis w:ty to the boy,
held out his hand, saying with a smile, " come on,
Young America." The boy grappled tbe hand he
sought for, and seemed to quiver with delight at the
fact of Sheridan's conferring upon him such a
An American gentleman having seated himself in
a London omnibus, saw and heard what a little
amused him. A man. bearing do peculiar marks of
authority, looked in at tbe door, took a professional
view of the passengers, and called out to the driver,
without any pretense at modest concealment of his
thoughts, " You can't go on, there's two of the swell
mob in here." The coach waited, till at length a
pursy, well-locking old man, rose and stepped out,
saying, as he did so. ' I've ton muoh money to ride
with pickpockets." In a moment more a spruce
young person said as he decamped, "I'll follow that
old man's lead." " Go on now," said tbe detective
policeman, "tbe swells have got out and all's right."
The Tece Metal In his oration at Marysville,
Cal., on the Fourth of July last, Rev. Horatio Steb
bins said :
The man who dees not stand up fairly under the
protection of a common government, and say to all
men, live and let live; do the best with your own
powers, and ally yourselves by all intelligence and
virtue to the interest of human society, and the com
mon destiny; the man who does cot say that, and
pronounce it in the wide open sky of a tolerant na
ture, is guilty. of treason and secession from man
kind. He is guilty of the same crime against human
nature that tbe State Rights men have committed
against the country."
The following impressive thought is taken from one
of the recent utterances of Rev. Dr. Busbnell, of
Hartford, Connecticut. He fs speaking of tbe majesty
and Btrength of the United States Government :
We did not know how strong it was before. No
body had any conception of the immense strain it
could beat. How bright is tbe future now of such a
Government and nation ! Hallowed by so many
battle-fields, and these by tbe tribute of bo many his
tories, and sung by so many songs of the great poets
of the future, bow dear, and sacred and glorious it
will be ! And God be thanked, it was our privilege
to live in. this great day of crisis, this always to be
called heroic age of the republic.
" Miles O'Reilly" (Charles G. Halpine.) has taken
the editorial charge of the New York Citizen, and
promises to make it a good paper. He relates an
anecdo'e of Mr. Lincoln's to illustrate his position.
The President hal been attacked by the Committee
on the Conduct of the War for the failure of a cer
tain expedition in the Southwest. An officer ac
quainted with the facts offered to set him right before
the public, Oh, no," replied the President, at
least not now. If I were to learn to read, much less
answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might
as well be closed for any other business. 1 do the
very best I know how, the very best I can; and I
mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end
brings me out all right, what is said against me
won't amount to anything. If the end brings me
out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would
makfi no difference."
The Claremont (N. II.) Advocate say a lady in
Unity nut long since became the mother of a fine
daughter. A few days after, a Copperhead neighbor
happening in, said to the mother, Well, I suppo?
you'll call it Abe Lincoln." "No," the replied,
I'm sorry I can't. Like ycur friend Jeff, it will

An honest, but too talkative Republican memCer
of the Connecticut Legislature, when the resolutions
came up endorsing the policy of President John-ton,
avowed that he was in a quandary. He could not
endorse the President. He thought it a "fuspioioua"
circumstance that the Democratic preasea approved
of Mr. Johnsou's course, and he said, " Either they
are coming to us, or we are going to them!" His
party bad either found a cart or lost a horse, he did
not know which, and he was a-going to wait and
An anvil block weighing one hundred an 1 sixty
tons has been cast at the Midland Works, Sheffield,
England. The enormous cast was six weeks in
cooling. The mould was dug out in tbe centre of
the workshop and the molten iron was run into it
from five furnaces at once, the filling occupying
twelve hours. The anvil, when finished, has to re
ceive tbe blows of a twenty. five ton Nasymjth ham
mer. It came out in a case before an English police
court that a practice exists among beggars to keep
their children from growing, by feeding them with
gin, so as to ensure always having a baby to attract
compassion. In the case before the oourt, a child
four years old was stunted so as not to appear more
than twelve months old.
A New Advocate of Neqro Scffeaoe. It will
surprise meet people to know that the New York
J'ews, the chief pro-Southern organ iu the loyal
States, has begun to express itself in favor of negro
suffrage. It says that in the earliest days of the
Republic many Southern statesmen were inclined to
give the ballot to the negro, and now it says it
could mention more than fifty leading men in tbe
Southern States who seriously consider this the day
and hour when tbe preservation and stability of
Southern interests impel them to return on this sub
ject to the ancient policy of early Southern states
men." The main idea seems to be that it is only by
admitting the negroes to vote that the South can
turn its increased political power to the best aocotra t.
The following reasoning on this topic is ingenious :
Tbe exact legal and political position of tbe
slave ti fAt's country has not always been, clearly
appreciated. An eminent writer well defines him to
be a person who is related to society through
another person, called a master, to whom he owes
due service or labor, and from whom be is entitled
to receive support and protection. Nothing stood
between the slave and full citizenship but this invol
untary service; that impediment is gone, through
the actual operatiau of the war, and the liberated
black stands himself, a citizen in his own proper
person, and not through the relation of another
called a master. Then if the abstract right to
vote inheres in every citizen, why not in the nativa
black man? What rule of law denies him that
right ? Is it not bis absolute personal right, now
that he is liberated ? And if it is his, who shall
take it from him, or who shall come between him
and the State of which he is a citizen ? It, a3 all
other civic rights, may be forfeited by an absolute
crime. But this is common to all citizens."
Tns French Emperor's Unhappy Mexican Ven
ture The London Times is out with a demonstra
tion of the political and financial blunder committed
by the astute French Emperor in Mexico. It says :
In spite of the wealth of Mexican mines and the
resources cf the country, the capitalists of Europe
are resolute in their distrust cf an empire which
rests on foreign bayonets. No tribute to the power
of the Emperor Napoleon can be greater than that
involved in tbe fact that his subjects aro willing to
trust him in the conduct of a polioy against the pru
dence of which every one of them singly rebels. The
maintenance of the Latin race in Central America as
a check to the encroaching Anglo-Saxon is a grand
idea, but it does not seem to bo successful even when
the Anglo-Saxon is too busy to interfere with it.
The Emperor has had it all his own way in Mexico,
and what has been the result ! He has placed an
Austrian prince on a trans-Atlantic throne, and baa
given him a Papal difficulty, the solution of which is
as obscure as the reconciliation of the convention
with the maintenance of tbe temporal power of the
Pope. Ho has made the Emperor Maximilian lord of
.a bankrupt exchequer, the demands on which are
great and tbe supplies limited. The new poteutate
is maintained in power by a foreign army, which is
continually engaged in putting down insurgents who
are dispersed in one place only to reappear in another.
And there is now a procpect of a new difficulty in
tbe recovered leisure of the neighbor whose restless
activity was a principal motive for the establishment
of the Mexican empire.
It is not surprising that all the intellect of Franco
should chafe at a situation which is absolutely in
glorious, and is not free from danger. Every one is
restless and uneasy, and looks to the supreme head
of affairs in hope that some effort will be made to
retire from a position so unpromising while it is yet
possible. The Emperor Napoleon must himself be
conscious of the deep distrust with which his faith
ful subjects watch tbe issue of the Mexican interven
tion, and would perhaps be not unwilling on his own
account to consult their wishes, if, at the same time
he could preserve his honor undimmed. But the ne
cessary correlative of unchecked power is undivided
responsibility, and the resolute brain which first con
ceived the possibility of establishing a dependent
empire in tbe West, must devise for itself the means
of escaping from the consequences of its own errors.'
Suffrage Facts. A Committee of the Executive
Board of tbe Central Union Club of Brooklyn, hav
ing been appointed to consider tbe whole eubject of
reconstruction, report that they have come to the
conclusion that ' all tbe colored people of the seven
disorganized States have a right to vote, which can
not be taken away from tbem by any power short of
a State Convention elected by the whole people of
each State." In support of this ground, they sub
mit the following important facts :
' 1. The case of Georgia is a peculiar one, and one
wbich admits of no doubt. Tbe Constitution of that
State presoribes no qualification for electors, except
that they must be 'citizens and inhabitants of the
State, of the age of twenty-one years, and must have
paid all taxes required of them. The word white
nowhere occurs in the Constitution in connection with
the right of suffrage. We quote from an edition pre
pared under tbe direction of tbe State by Howell
Cobb in 1859. Tbe authority will, we trust, bo
deemed satisfactory, although the character of Mr.
Cobb, as a man of honor, has deteriorated since that
2. Tbe Constitutions of North Carolina, South
Carolina and Georgia contain no provision in respect
to tbe right of suffrage, except with regard to elec
tions for the Legislature and Governor; South Caro
lina none as to the Governor, be not being chosen by
the people. There is nothing eaid in these Constitu
tions about the right of suffrage for locil offices, that
being regulated by statutes.
8. The Constitutions of Florida, Alabama, Missis
sippi and Texas prescribe that every free white
male, &c, &c, shall be deemed a qualified elector
tbe Constitution of Florida adding : at all elec
tions under this constitution. These Constitution
declare that, the Governor and Legislature shall be
chosen by the qualified electors,' but they every one
declare, by a marked and important contrast, that
the people (not the qualified electors only) have at
all times an inalienable right to alter or abolish their
form of government in such manner as tbey may
4. There is no Constitution, law or ordinanoe now
in force in any of the seven disorganized States which
regulates, defines, or limits tbe right of suffrage for
delegates to a State convention."
