LATUR RAT, JULY 6, 189T.
S Ge r. a rs R pamaa.
Gem. Butler has been moved to write
Slettsser in reply to newspaer psra.
graphs. He refers to his chargek and at
tempts an explanatlom as to the pidL
ing of deserters from a West Virginia
regiment, and then continue :
It is true that the War Deplta..ept
order restoring these men is not dated
till the 25th of November, thirty days
after the election; but the President's
order was dated before the election, and
the Department took thirty days to in
vestiglq e ease et aeme Pan of the 198
who was proved to have deserted to the
enemy, and th. obeyed tls Executive,
order as to thtte , so. tbht mao than vr e
due Mr. Johnson that all these deserters
were not restored before the election, as
he had ordered to be done, without in
vestigation, thereby takiag _= ,trom
the 4nd appropriated to se ol
diers and giving it to the deserters and
claim agents. These facts no truthful
person has oonotadic*ed anywhere.
Again let me examine the assertion that
the story that 18 pages had been taken
from Booth's diary is also an invention.
Ukith's diary has been before the C~ah
mittee, and 18 pages are carefully cut
out, being the pages down to the assas
sination. The only question I raised
was when and by whom were these
leaves cut out? Booth, while hned
for his life through swamps and b
after the assassination, would hardy
have leisure for such aI1nsemeý; .e-.
side, one horsebeek, whh one ki broiLen,
it might be difficult to get a ruler or
straight edge by which to triP the
leaves as nicely -as it Is' done. Etety
thing taken from his person was put in
evidence on the trial of Mrs. Surratt,
even to a bill of exchange taken oat of
this same diary, except this diary itself
and a valuable diamnond pin which he
wore. These alone were kept back.
Why cannot eighteen leaves of the diary
and the pin now be todnd ? "Until those
having had the eust nd. of the articles
taken from the body can account for all
of them, I must be excused from believ
ing the testimony that articles are all
now in the same condition as when found.
If the witness can be found who has got
the pin, perhaps h can sell us who has
the missing leaves. Upon the whole, do
you really think that the missing leaves
r., an ina.ration 9
As my band is in, perhaps it will bm
well to look up the origin of the phrase
which inventive persons have appropri
ated to themselves. Your article says
General Butler must be more careful oi
he'll get bottled up again." True, he
may be. in the same way as before. In
May, 18t4, whedl operating agaismt Jich
mond and Petersburg, (en. Butler re
ceived orders from Gen. Grant to send
away all the troops he could with safety
spare to reinforce the army of the Poto
mac on the Peninsula, then about to
fight the battle of Cold Harbor. In obe
dience thereto Gen. Butler sent General
Grant 17,000 picked men of the 25,00(1
effective men, including the black troops,
then under Gen. Butler's command
whereupon (Gen. Butler complained that
the necessities of the Army of the Poto
mac had bottled him up in Bermuda
Hundred. That complaint was repeated
about his headquarters, and in these very
words will be found to have been puh
lished in the correspondence from thence
of the New York Times of that date.
Eighteen months afterward Gen. Grant
incorporates these words in a grave offi
cial report without giving, as I have
done, a reason for their pertinency, and
the phrase thus used by him was deemed
a scintillation of genius. The inventor
did not think as highly of his own pro
duction. However, even a borrowed
rushlight shines widely in a thick mist.
Respectfully, your ob'd't serv't.

Postal Telegraph esheame.
The directors of the WVestern Unioi
Telegraph Company, at a meeting helh
on the 5th instant, unanimously resolve<
to accept the provisions of the Nationa
Telegraph law, passed by Congress, an<
directed that the necessary notices be
filed with the Postmaster General imme
diately. By this action theG(overnmnen
will acquire the right to purchase the
company's lines and property at a valua
tion to be determined by the commis
sioners chosen, two by the compaay, tw(
by the United States, and one by the
other four, whenever Congress shall de
cide to make the telegraph a part of the
postal system. The company also ac
quires the right to build and maintair
lines along all railroads and highways it
the United States, which have been, of
shall hereafter be, declared to be pos.
roads, and over all public lands, withoul
charge. It has been claimed that the
law above referred to gave these impor
tant privil.'ges exclusively to another
company. This is a mistake. Its pro
visions are general, and the Western
Union Telegraph Company owns or con
trols nearly all the lines in the country
Whatever value they possess must be
greater to that company than to any
other. This action cannot fail to exert
an important and beneficial influence on
the interest of telegraph companies. Ii
the Government shall, hereafter, decide
to take the entire, or even partial, con
trol of the telegraph business, it will
undoubtedly purchase or arrange for the
use of the lines and property of this comrn
pany. which, it is claimed, could not now
duplicated for a much larger sum
than is represented by the present price
OI De sBLOCK.
MR SUMNER has published a long
pamplet concerning the Russian Posses
sions, the climate, soil, productions, in
habitants, early history, history of the
purchase, &c. It appears that negotia
tions for the purchase of this country
were begun during James Buchanan's
administration. They came to nothing,
and were brought to an end by the break
ing out of the rebellion.
The population is fixed by Sumner as
follows: Russians and Creoles, 2,500;
aboriginals under the government of the
fur company, 8,000; Esquimant, 18,00O;
Aleutians, 8,000; Kennians, 25,000; Kal
achians, 4.000; total 89,000. Tree are
the principal vegetable production. Bar
ley grows well; oats partially; wheat,
rye and corn very slightly. Coal is chief
of the mineral Produects; but gold ar.d
copper have been found in small q .ati
titles, and iron, silver nad lead anr re
pseted. Mr. Sumner proposes Alaska as
the name for our new country.
