Almost every prince and princess in Bavaria
ts "proprietor" of some valuable privilege pro
ducing a revenue, even to the colonelcy of regi
ments in the service ot Prussia and Russia, the
commissions being hereditary in the male line.
The Prince of Tour and Taxis possessed the most
profitable of all, having enloyed since the de
cease of his father the emoluments arising from
a farmmg out of the postal service ot Germany,
a position which Count Bismark found entirely
Incompatible with his ideas of the reconstruc
tion of the country, being particularly in con
flict with his project for he readjustment of the
Zollvcrcm or commercial affairs of the States.
Hence the extinction of the monopoly of the
Prince by purchase.
The Prince of Tour and Taxis comes of a very
ancient lineage, being the representative of the
famous house ot Tour and Taxis, the lords of
which were at one time proprietors of the
domain de Yorriana, situate in the old Duchy
of Mantua. There are two branches now in
existence, the elder being represented by the
gentleman who has been compensated by
Prussia. This is the Prince Maximilian Charles,
Who has his residence at Ratiebon. He was

Prince of Tour and Taxis, Prince de Buchan

filre, a hereditary member of the Prussian Legis

t-states on the 16m of July, 1827. He has been
twice married, his wives having borne him fif
teen children. The younger line is represented

July, 1817, who is proprietor ot valuable lands

NAPOLEON'S REFORM BILL.
Tbe Emperor's Letter to the Minister of
The following letter was addressed, as noticed
in our cable report a few days since, by the
Emperor to the Minister of State:
Palace of the Tuileries, January 1!).
Monsieur le Ministre: For some years past the
question has been asked whether our insti
tutions have gained their limit of improve
ment, or whetntr new improvements are to be
realized. Hence a lamentable uncertainty
which it Is Important to remove.
Up to the present you have had to strike
courageously in order to repel Inopportune
demands, and to leave with me the initiative
of unerul reforms when the time should arrive.
And now I believe that it is possitle to give to
the Institutions of the Empire all the develop
ment of which they are capable, and to the
public liberties a new extension, without com
promising the power which the nation has lu
trusted to me.
The plan which I have traced out to myself
consists in correcting the imperfections which
time has revealed, and in admitting that pro
gress which is compatible with our habits', for
to govern is to profit by the experience which
has been acquired, and to foresee the wants of
The object of the decree of the 24th of Novem
ber, 1800, was to associate the Senate and the
Corps Leglslatlf more directly with the policy
of the Government, but the debate on the ad
dress has not led to tiie results which were to be
expected from it it has sometimes needlessly
excited public opinion, given rise to sterile dis
cussions, and occasioned a loss of time most
nrecious for the affairs of the country: and I
believe that, without any diminution of the
prerogatives of the deliberative powers, the ad
dress may be replaced by the privilege, pru
dently regulated, of putting questions to the
Auother modification has appeared to me
necessary In the relations of the Government
towards the great bodies of the State. I huve
considered that by sending the Ministers to the
Senate and the Corps Leglblatlf to take part lu
certain debates, by virtue of a special commis
sion. I should better utilize the strength of the
Government without devlatiug from the terms
of the Constitution, which admits no solidarity
among the Ministers, and makes them de
pendent only upon the chief of the (State.
But the reforms which it is fitting to adopt
must not stop there. A law will be proposed
for assigning the jurisdiction over oifenses
against the press law exclusively to the correc
tional tribunals, and thus suppress the discre
tionary power of the Government. It is equally
necessary to regulate legislatively the right of
assembly, while restraining H within the limits
Which publlo safety demauds.
I said last year that my Government wished
to walk upon ground consolidated and capable
of sustaining power and liberty. Hy the
measures I have Just pointed out my words
become realized. I do not shake the ground
which fifteen years of calm and prosperity
have consolidated, but I increase the streugtu
bv rendering inv relations with the great pub-
lie powers more intimate by securing to the
citizens by law fresh guaranties, by completlug

Garibaldi has written the following letter
upon American affairs, in reply to an American
who usked his opinion. The letter has already
been alluded to in a cable despatch:
"Capkkka, January 8. Sir I am happy to be
able to respond to your wish to know my opinion
upon the present controversy between the Pre
sident of the United States and the majority in
Congress. I shall certainly give it with the con
sciousness thnt the qrestion at issue coneerns
not only America, but humanity at large. Yes,
for us friends of the American Union who
trembled, for a moment, lor its Integrity during
the gigantic struggle which you have so happily
brought to an end, the Importance of the vote of
the colored race is lessened in presence of the
danger of fresh dissension. Members of the
human fraternity, we make no distinction of
race. We have, therefore,' applauded the elec
tion made by the generous population of Massa
chusetts in the persons of two colored deputies
as their representatives, and we shall applaud
any such demonstration in a country where
liberty and progress are not empty words.
"What we, however, chiefly desire Is that the
harmony, more or less complete, which now
reigns among the members of the American
family may not be disturbed, and that every
sort of individual prejudice may bo sacrificed,
at any cost, in order to maintuin intact the in
tegrity of the great republic, the strongest pal
ladium of liberty in the world. May your Pre
sident, therefore, come to an understanding
with Congress, and may dissension no longer
exist between the States constituting your ad
mirable political system. Such is the wish
formed by your sincere friends, among whom
I am proud to include myself.
'Yours, faithfully, G. Garibaldi."

THE GREAT GERMAN FOOT R&CE.
Thlrty.two Miles Walked In Seven
Honrs and Fifteen Minutes The
Strongest Contest In Tennessee Dr.
Handrlch Winner by Fire Minutes.
from the Nathville Pretx, January 28.
The great contest of speed and bottom be
tween Jacob Handrlch, of the Climax Saloon,
and David Kuhn. of Steifel's Brewery, to Mur
freesboro. tor $1000 a side, came off Saturday.
The parties made a "square start" from the
Climax Saloon, on Cherry street, precisely at 3
o'clock in the afternoon, and the wiuner arrived
at the St. Charles, in Murfreesboro, at tilteen
minutes after 10 In the evening.
The winner is a square-built, muscular man,
about thirty-five years of age, and weighing
two hundred and ten pounds.
His competitor is a man about the same age,
rather tall and slim, welshing about one hun
dred tnd fifty pounds. Tbe betting was about
even, those who would have "gone their pile"
on the supposed advantage of condition of Kuhn,
were r hy of the known nerve and endurance of
Both parties came up to the scratch promptly,
and at tne signal being given, they started off at
a brisk walk, taking the Murfreesboro pike when
ot of the city, the "Doctor" taking the lead
when they were last seen. The conditions of the
race were that neither should taste food nor
drink lrom starting to stopping, and both might
take any route he chose, by the pike or across
fields, to the point agreed upon at Murtreesboro
being reached, to determine the con-est.
THB FIRST V'IFTEEN MILES.
The first fifteen miles to Lavergne were made
in three hours, Handrich being ahead, but his
competitor being fully In sight.
THB RaCI IN THB DARK.
Shortly after passing Lavergne it commenced
getting dark, and from thence to the point of
destination the "coursers" sped away over rocks
and stones, holding a good pace, as the time
The heavy brown nag still held his lead, how
ever, nnd when he crossed Stone river bridge
was about a mile and a half ahead, going at a
steady gait, and sure of being the winner.
THE HOME STRKTCH.
The sorrel was not to give up, however, with
out a gallant contest, and commenced a brilliant
dash for the home stand. Having caretu'ly
husbanded his strength, he now commenced a
brisk run, and would have undoubtedly been
successful in his tactioe if the other "rider" had
not anticipated this attempted coup d'etat, and
also "used tbe rowels." With a sharp lookout
tor his pursuer, the "Doctor" strode into the
expectant town ot Murfreesboro just five
minutes in advance ot bis adversary, with the
vigorous movement of an Atlantic steamship,
while his more fragile antagonist was some half
a mile astern, flying before the wind, with all
sails filled, like an ocean yacht.
"TREATMENT" OF THB WINNER.
Going at once to the St. Charles, the Doctor
was immediately surrounded by the curious
throngs ot the excited people of Murtreesboro,
who could scarcely realize he was a staunch,
good-looking man, not much the worse for wear,
aud not an elephant or a wild horse from the
Texan plains. All speculations were soon put
at rest, However, ior nequicKiycauea ior "lager
beer," and by the time the other bad come up,
had disposed of eight glasses of the Teutonic
The parties remained in Murfreesboro until
yesterday, having a good time, when they re
turned to this city by rail.
Thus ended one of the most singular contests
which we have ever heard of, everything being
done In a satisfactory manner, and in the cool
est earnest. The distance travelled is thirty
two miles, and it will be seen that they made
nearly four and a half miles an hour, neither
party having been in any previous training.

A Terrible Iland-lo-IIand Fight.
Fort lieno Correspondence of Louisville Journal.
Herewith I give you additional and accurate
intormatiou ot the terrible calamity that betel
the 18th United States infantry on the 21st, day
of December, l8C(i, at or near Fort Phil. Kear
ney, in Dakotah Territory. On that Ul-futed
day the Indiaus made an attack on the wood
train ot the atoresaid post. Colonel II. B. Car
rlngton, the commauount, sent out reinforce
ments to assist the guard ot the wood train.
The Indians numbered fifty, the reinforcing
party numbering eighty-oue men, lucludinir
officers and citizens. As soon as the Indians
perceived that we were In close quarters, they
bepan to retreat. Our men followed them.
The Indians entered a ravine, our men still
following. The Indians had two thousand war
riors concealed in the ravine. The troops were
permitted to enter the narrow defile until they
were carefully and hopelessly surrounded.
Then commenced one of tbe most terrible haud-to-haud
fights ever recorded in the hibtory of
Indian warfure. Our eighty-one whites re
pulsed two thousand Indiaus In three successive
charges; but the fourth charge was too much
for them. Owing to the overwhelming num
bers and disadvantageous ground, our men
could sustain themselves no longer. They were
killed and sculped to a man. Not one was left
to tell the tale of blood.
The post was too went to send assistance to
those poor fellows. They were horribly muti
lated. There was but one eye-witness to this
fight, Dr. Hines, ho being at a distance from
those men engaged. He states that our men
fought desperately. The Indians kept a hun
dred men busy carrving off tbelr dead and
wounded. It is a supposition that the loss of
the Indians amounted to four hundred killed
and wounded. This fact, however, is not easily
ascertained, as they carry off their dead and
wounded on purpose to keep them from being
teen or the number known.

Nobristown, Pa., February 6. As might be
expected, the all-absorbing tople of the day has
been the execution ot Joseph, alias Jacob Frede
rick Haddopp, for the murderof Julius Wochele
In November, 1865. The circumstances attend
ing this crime, at the time it was committed,
caused an intense excitement throughout the
county, which had by no means abated at the
time the trial took place.
The First Execution for Murder.
Apart from its being a case of purely circum
stantial evidence, and the fact that the prisoner,
from first to last, protested his entire Innocence
in the matter, it is the first case in the history
of Montgomery county in which a jury has con
victed a person of murder In the first degree,
although a man is now serving out a term of
twelve years in the County Jail, having been
convicted of murder in the second degree for
the killing of his wife, in a hand to-hand fight
The Other Man Hung at Morrlstown,
Since the Revolutionary war there have been
a score of trials for murder, but thU ie the first
case in which. capital punishment has been
the penalty meted out on conviction. Indeed,
tbe only execution that ever took place In tbe
county was that of an old offender by the name
of John Brown, who was hanged on the 12th of
April, 1788, by Francis Swalne, then Sheriff, tor
the ciune ot burglary, which was a capital
offense under the old colonial law. This execu
tion took place on Airv street, just In the rear
ot the spot where die Court House now stands.
Many ot the citizens took offense at the pub
licity of the proceedings, but the abend" de
fended his course by allceing that all the pro
perty owners" in the neighborhood refused to
allow him to perform his duty on their pre
mises, and he was thus forced to resort to the
Personnel of Haddopp.
The convicted murderer, Haddopp, is a man
of slight frame, about five teet seven inches in
height, and weighing about one hundred and
twenty pounds. His features are rather thin
and sharp, his forehead high, and his hair,
which he wears combed back, quite dark in
color. His beard consists at present of a plain
goatee, the rest of his face being smoothly
shorn. Not tbe least noticeable feature of the
prisoner is his greyish-blue eye, which Is re
markably clear and bright, imparting to him a
fascinating tnd at the same time a dangerous
look. Although of an apparently peaceable
disposition, he has just that bearing which is
fitted for deeds of dark intrieue, and this faculty
must have been brought Into lively exercise
when he allured his victim from this city to the
deserted farm on which he met his fate.
Haddopp is a native of Baden, and has re
ceived a very thorough education. He is a
fluent master of (ierman, French, and Italian,
and is said to be well versed in the Latin tongue
as well. His knowledge of English, however,
is so imperfect that no profitable communica
tion can be had with him except through the
ngency of an interpreter. At the time of the
murder he had been in this country but a few
years, and most of these had been passed in tbe
army, which he entered soon after his arrival,
loiufng the ranks of a New Jersey regiment as a
Interview With Ills Wife.
Several months after the murder, and before
his arrest, he married, his wife knowing nothing
oi uib iruiu. cub visiiuii uiui ou jMonuay, out
their meeting was rather cold and formal.
The prisoner then protested to her his entire
innocence, as he did to his counsel as late as
The story that he tells 19 to the effect that
he had often spoken to Wochele of his sister,
who resides at 8t. Charles, Missouri, and in
whom Wochele seems to have taken a great in
terest. Haddopp claims to have told him that
Sr. Charles was a very thriving town, but he
himseli had no desire to leave his present work
and eo there. Wochele, he claims, was much
disheartened, and anxious to belter his condi
tion; and having borrowed sixty dollars of
Haddopp, whom he was then unable to repay,
he gave him the address of his guardian and
step-mother, authorizing him to wTite In hlB
name for the money, from which he was to get
a return of the loan. He pretends to believe
that Wochele set out tor tho West, and that he
has seen or heard nothing ot biui since.
Haddopp's Spiritual Advisers.
During his imprisonment since the trial, Had
dopp has exhibited a variable mood. Being a
Catholic by profession, Father O'Hara. of
Norristown, tendered him his services, but their
inability to understand the laneuacre snolceu bv
each other, rendered it necessary for them to
call in Father Kuutzer, of Manavunk. Last
week FatherGrundtner.of Philadelphia, was also
seut for, and siuce his at'.endauce a marked
change has come over the prisoner. Before
this, he would at times give way to extreme
Sassiou, cursing every one who participated in
is trial, except his own counsel. He has been
particularly severe against Charles Hunslcker,
E q., the District Attorney, and at his request
the latter declines toattend the execution. Dur
ing the past few days he appears to be some
what more reconciled to his fate. A few
evenings since, a party of ladies and gentlemen
visited the jail, and sang several pieces of sacred
music. Haddopp was so pleased with this that
be requested them to come again, and last
evening the singing party spent some time in
the corridor near his cell.
Haddopp's Last Writings.
The prisoner has written several letters, which
are to be given to certain parties and German
newspapers. A letter, addressed to his brother,
was bo passionate and vindictive that it was not
forwarded bj tbe authorities. Sum X Uio
documents which be has written are not to bo
opened until after the execution, and it may be
that a confession is among tne number. On
Monday he wrote a letter to be given to the
Sheriff, of which the following is a transla
tion: Mote to tho Doctors.
'Messrs. Doctors: I request not to be taken
up and dissected, but to be burled as becomes
au Innocent man. You may hunt for tne, but
If you find me I pity you, for you must obtain
your knowledge from an innocent body. Ilia
also tiie sacred duty of I tie Jury whichcouvlcled
me to death to see me buried innocently.
"Jacob F. Haddopp."
On the back of this letter was written the fol
lowing: "A II those who pnrtlclpato In my exeoutlon I
wish to keep me in remembrance. Then I will
remember you all with grateful respect.
Brothers, I wish you well forever."
Yesterday the scaffold for the execution was
erected in the prison yard. It Is the same on
which Probst met his doom. From 1 o'clock to
3 the public were admitted to inspect it, and
during tbe three hours that it was exposed to
view the yard wa9 crowded with curious people.
Last evening the Sheriff. Mr. B. N. Beysher,
was in consultation with the prison Inspectors,
to complete the arrangements lor tbe final tra-
f:cdy. The worthy oihctals were sorely puzzled,
d 86 much as they and their predecessors for
many years have been spared such painful
duties. Cut Sheriff Beysher nobly determined
to pull the drop himseli, and not foist this dis
agreeable task on some one else. At least a
thousand persons have applied for tickets to
witness the execution, but the number was
wisely limited to one hundred.
Haddopp's Last Night on Earth.
The prisoner was engaeed last night till 12
o'clock in reading his Bible and prayer book,
and was awakened at four o'clock this morn
ing, trom which time till seven he again de
voted hiiDFelfto religious duties and spiritual
advisers and counsel, who were then admitted,
the time cassim? in nraver and conversation.
The prisoner appeared quite cheerful for the
time, even executing the manual of arms, to

As soon as the theft was discovered, informa
tion was conveyed to the Superintendent of
