One of the nio.-t interesting features of
n republican government is thts frequent
collision of giant minds on the great ques
tions of the day. These conflicts of opin
ion enable those who, like ourself, have
no great pretentions to statesmanship, to
como to correct conclusions as to the merits
of the controversy .
The last Aleghanian contains a letter
written by the last of the three gentlemen
whose names head thi article, and writ
ten at the other two. Mr. Davis was the
President of the late "so called ' Southern
Confederacy ; Mr. Greeley, the editor of
the- New York Tribune ; and Mr. Darker
a member of the last Congress. They
were all active contributors to the causes
that brought about the late rebellion, but
after it actually commenced the first only
sustained it, while the two last fought to
put it down. Wc use the word "fought"
" figuratively, of course, fur the talents of
these three distinguished gentlemen could
not bo spared from the councils at Wash
ington and Richmond, so that neither of
thtm ever sought the tented field.. '
The letter of Mr. Murker ia severe upon
Tiip.ireeley, and still more severe upon
Mr. Davis. Wc have no doubt Mr.
Greeley will feel deeply pained that Mr.
Darker has "felt constrained to differ with
him in opliion' heretofore, but the chief
unforgivable crime laid to lu3 charge by
Mr. II. is that he went "all the way to
Richmond" and went ball fur Jeff Davis.
"Therca? (wc give Mr. Barker's own Eng
'!T"ahd thereby he stultified himself,
:cd had taste, and utterly disregarded
f'- Idled the sentiment of the loyal mass
. ' '-and denounces I loracc as "the backer
t -s .notorious traitor." lie then winds
y assuring Greeley that he "may
' !tj find explain, and ecold, and
:iten as he will, but I (the said Barker
tj fining) tell him, more in sorrow than in
ger, that by his imprudent trip to llich
ond he managed to get a black tpoi on
' old while coat which not all the ingenui-
"and sophistry of the Tribune cstablish-
ih (the New Y'ork Tribune meaning)
can ever cover or erase." Then follows
the conclusion, in the following statesman
like and significant words, so frequently
used as "Amen" by Bostou divines
"Til ATS SO" and Greeley is no more.
But if Mr. Barker's rebuke ot Greeley
is scathing his attack upon Davis is abso
lutely fearful ! Never this tide of the Bi'.
ngsgate fishmarket was heard such awful,
iueii withering invective ! And it is not
made without sufficient information of the
fa:ts whereof he speaks, for Mr. Barker is
a Jcnowkdjalle man. "I have watched
his public course," quoth Barker, "with
the utmost care, and am morally certain
that treason, damning treason (a new kind,
wo suppose,) has been lurking in his heart
for the last twenty years."
After comparing Davis with Calhoun,
and regretting that that statesman was
permitted to die a natural death, ho pro
ceeds with about a column of the worst
abuse we ever read. We shall give a few
of the adjectives and nowns, as a sample :
"Perjured wretch," "baso and bloody
usurper," "ungodly ambition," "arch-traitor,"
"scoundrel and arch-traitor," "sneak
and coward," "willing to unsex himself,"
"accursed carcass," "infernal secessionist
and traitor, the slave-driver and freedom
Later, the butcherer of U nion prisoners
and Presidential murderer," "author of ten
thousand crimes, thi3 wholesale murderer,
this chief of all villains," Ac. &c. &c
Now, here's a "pretty kettle of fish."
Greeley and Davis, of course, both take
the Alleyhuniaii, and their feelings may be
We easily imagined than described'
But what are they going to do about it?
Neither of them can afford to -lie under
. these heavy charges, brought to their doors
by a respectable ex-member of Congress.
We can only say, in all franknesf, that
each or either of them shall have a column
of the Frccvvxa to reply to Mr. Barker,
provided their letters avoid scurrility and
gross personalities. And, we doubt not,
tho reading public will await with anx
:vyy the result of iMb tremendous menial
1 V i
Greeley may conclude, philosopher-like.
that his general term, "Blockhead," ap
plied to politicians of Mr. Barker's kidney,
already answers Lira ; and if so it will
"block" anything further on that "head"
with him. But then what will Davis do ?
They might, when they see the article.
say Mr. Barker had been "vio!atiu',' but
that would be wide of tho mark. Mr.
B. never drinks. Our own knowledge
upon that questiou coincides with that of
our veracious correspondent, "MacShane,"
that he has been a temperanco man even
"from his youth up." It is a mere pecu
liarity of style.
Might they indict for libel ? No! There
is nothing really libellous as to Greeley,
and Davis has no status here if he was
But might Barker not be indicted as a
common scold T No, though in the letter
in question he is a common scold, in fact
yet he could not be eonvicted as a common
scold at laic. If an old woman had writ
ten the article she might have been in
dicted and convicted, but a3 Mr. Barker
is of the "male persuasion" he is not in
dictable as a common scold. Mrs. Royal
was indicted and convicted of this offence,
but a Mr. Loyal can't be. Hence Mr.
B. need have no fears of the ducking stool,
the common law punishment for a scold.
We admire the want of gallantry of our
law-making ancestors, which saves our
distinguished fellow-citizen from any risk
of this kind. It is one of the very few
offences of which only one sex can be
Then the only retort left to Jeff. Davis
"on this behalf," would be to reply to
Mr. Barker's charge "that he was willin"
to unsex himself, and resort to the misera
ble subterfuge of wearing women's clothes,"
that, as 2er contra, " Barkis was willin' "
to unsex himself, and resort to the misera
ble vaporings and invectives of a common

A general feeling of iudignation per
vades all parties in the United States, and
indeed extends over the civilized world, at
the brutal murder of the late Emperor of
Mexico Maximillian. Nor is it any
wonder! No matter what the destiny of
the unfortunate Mexicans may be in the
future, that act will stamp their name
with an undying stigma that dan never bo
erased from their escutcheon.
Maximillian made a mistake he did
not commit a crime. We know that
among a certain class of politicians in ail
countries, the maxim prevails that "a
blunder is worse than a crime." This is
the doctrine of Tally rand and his school
of diplomatists, but it is not the doctrine
The theory of enlightened governments
has been that when insurrections or revo
lutions are ended, and peace restored, a
magnanimous course towards the conquer
ed is not only more politic, but more in
accordance with the intelligence and Chris
tianity of the age.
We are glad that the radical organs in
this country agree with us in denouncing
the murder of Maximillian as, a piece of
unmitigated brutality, and if they were at
a different stand-point from that they oc
cupy, they would take precisely the same
view of the Jeff Davis question. This is
tho view taken by the civilized nations of
the earth, and would be the view taken
by the Alterbanian and Tnbunc, only for
the fact that they have been schooled in
vindictive Radicalism. Indeed, we must
do the Tribune the justice to add, that,
since the radical Judge Underwood dis
charged Jeff. Davis on the bond of the
radical leader, Greeley, its tone has soft
ened down very much on this question.
But then it soils its magnanimity by com
plaining that the President did not do in
hot blocd what radicals themselves dare
not do in cold blood. Davis was not in
our power until the war had ceased, and
after that we agree with Greeley, it was
time "to stop the effusion of blood."

The Booth letter.
Tho National Intelligencer of the 18th
inst. contains the following communication
from Mr. John Matthews, addressed tn the.
editor of that paper. Mr. Matthews was
a witness m the Surratt trial, bat was not
permitted by the Court to testify in regard
to the letter alluded to. As statements
have been publicly made in reference to
Mr. Matthews connection with this letter,
he asks the publication of this communi
cation in justification of himself and truth :
Washington, July 17,
Jul ilors In telligencer : Gentlemen:
Much has been said in the public prints
in relation to the missing letter of John
Wilkes Booth. As I am the person to
whom this letter was entrusted, I know
its contents and the circumstances attend
ing its delivery into my hands better than
any person now living,
It was on the afternoon of Good Fri
day, April 14, 18G5, at about 4 o'clock,
that I met John Wilkes Booth (on horse
back) on Pennsylvania avenue, at the
triangular enclosure between Thirteenth
and Fourteenth streets. We met, ehook
hands, and passed the compliments of tho
day. It so happened that the officers of
General Lee's army had just passed up in
a body. I asked Booth : ''Johnny, have
you seen Lee's officers, just brought in !"
He replied, "Yea, Johnny, I have ;" then
placing his hand upon his forehead, ex
claimed "Great God, I have no longer a
country!" Observing his paleness, ner
vousness, and agitation, I remarked,
"John, how nervous you are ; what is the
matter ?" to which he replied, "Oh, no, it
is nothing," and continued with, "Johnny,
I have a little favor to ask of you, will
you grant it !" "Why, certainly, John
ny," I replied, "what is it ?" He then
stated, "perhaps I may leave town to
night, and I have a letter here which I
desire to be published in the National In
telligencer; please attend to it for me,
unless I see you before 10 o'clock to-morrow
; in that case I will see to it myself."
At that moment I observed General
Grant riding by in an open carriage, car
rying also his baggage. Seeing" this I
called Mr. Booth's attention to him, and
said, "Why, Johnny, there goes Grant.
I thought he was cominc to iho fhtra
Tuis evening with the President." 'Where''
he exclaimed. I pointed to the carriage ;
ho looked toward it, grasped my hand
lightly, and galloped down the avenue
after the carriage. That was the last
time I met him until I saw him on the
stage of Ford's Theatre on the memorable
night of the 14th of April.
Time passed on. Many persons who
knew Booth or had ever seen him, were
arrested and sent to prison. The secret
of the letter was confined to a few confi
dential friends only ; but when I saw that
the editors of the National Intelligencer
were suspected of having suppressed the
document, and were interrogated in regard
to it at the Penitentiary trial, I considered
it my duty to assume all responsibility in
tlie matter by explaining the whole affair
to the proprietors of said paper. Accord
ingly I did so. I did. call at the office of
the paper, and stated all the facts to them
as stated above.
To-day in court, after answering a few
direct questions, I endeavored to make an
explanation of the matter, which was ob
jected to by the prosecution, and refused
by J udge Fisher.
The New Y'ork Herald, which first pro
cured the news from tho Judiciary Com
mittee of my having been before them,
and what testimony I had given, has
spoken of a secrecy of manner, and an
observation, "If something should occur
during the night," etc., on the part of
Wilkes Booth. I desire to state all that
did occur at that interview, and to say
also, that the letter was given with no
secrecy of manner, nor waB there any re
mark made about anything that might
occur during the night.
Now for the contents of the letter. It
was written on a sheet of commercial
note paper covering three pages. The
first two pages were written in the spirit
and style of the Philadelphia letter, and it
was only at the concluding paragraph that
anything was said bearing upon what had
transpired, which was to this effect and
in these words :
"For a long time I have devoted my
energies, my time and money to the ac
complishment of a certain end. . I have
been disappointed. The moment has now
arrived when I must change my plans.
Many will blame me for what I am about
to do ; but posterity, I am sure, will jus

A Wonderful Cure.
From the Catholic Standard, a church
newspaper published in Philadelphia, we
abstract the following statement, which
will no doubt prove of interest to many of
our readers :
; "We think it right to publish the par
ticulars of a wonderful cure which have
lately come to our notice. A lady resid
ing in a city in this State, has been bedrid
den and unable to stand upright for eidit
years and six months. She has frequent
ly been pronounced incurable by physi
cians This wc know of our own personal
knowledge. In fact, we know that she
had abandoned all hopes of a cure by hu
man means, and was thinking only of
patiently bearing her sufferings in prepara
tion for tho end which was impending.
But the approaching canonization of the
Blessed Paul of the Cross, founder of the
lassiomsts, moved some of the fathers of
that order, who were in the habit of visit
ing her to afford her spiritual comfort, to
have many novenas eaid for her by reli
gious communities and other pious persons!
to their holy Founder, to the end that,
through I113 intercession, she miht be
cured on the day of his canonfzation.
And it would seem that their prayers have
been heard. A friend in the soundness of
whose judgment wc bare every confidence,
writes to us : Ou the evening of June
2Qth she got vp and ivalkcd apbss the room.
I saw her do it. She is still very weak
from the excitement, but there can be no.
doubt of the fact.
We think it a duty to the newly canon
ized saint, and to the Divine Power, which
is manifested at his intercession, to give
publicity to this fact. Wo can ppeak.
from personal knowledge of the helpless
ness of the infirmity, and we can trust
our correspondent's judgment as to the
reality of the cure. We never call any
wonderful event a miracle, unless it has
been declared to be such by the Holy See,
for We do not forget the lessons of caution
taught by tho Holy See itself. But, we
have no doubt that the cure which we re
late is a wonderful favor altogether out of
the natural order,' granted by Almighty
God. to this afflicted, devout lady, at the
intercession of his great servant, Paul of
the Cross.' . " , : ;
Of the veracity of the above statement,
says the Pittsburgh Post, there can be no
doubt, for we have ourselves a knowledge
of many of the facts' in the case which we
have been intending to publish for our
readers' benefit. The lady mentioned is
a resident of this city, and until the even
ing of June 29th ultimo, for a period of
nearly nine years, has not been able to
leave her bed. When the Right Rev.
Bishop Domer 62 left Pittsburgh tor Rome
he told her that on the 29th there would be
prayer offered for her recovery at Rome
and exhorted her to have faith. Whether
her faith was such as to induce her to
make the endeavor to leave her couch or
not, we are not prepared to say, but cer
tain it is that on that day she arose from
her bed and walked to the window unas
sisted. Dr Fleming, who has for a long
time been attending her, had pronounced
her case incurable, as also had several
others of the medical faculty.
Surrati's , ArrEAUANCE. Mr. Albert
D. Richardson has thus briefly sketched
the appearance of Surratt, in "a letter to
the Tribune: "As Surratt sits in court
with hat removed, we see his face more
clearly. A small head, long, glossy, light
hair, brushed up from a full fair brow ;
email, aquiline nose, so hollow at its part
ing from the forehead that a child's finger
laid across would hardly fill the indenta
tion; eyes gray, deep set, near together,
earnest, secretive, but with a good deal of
composure, gained perhaps in so long
daring Fate to do its worst ; mouth wcak
half hidden by a light auburn moustache:
and a long, narrow pointed tuft of beard
pendant from the narrow chin. The face
is almost a triangle, narrowing down reg
ularly from the forehead n each ide to
the pointed chin." If this be the shape
of his face, it should denote a high order
Scrratt. The Tnbune, of Saturday,
says: "John II. Surratt ia by all odds
the best tried man in America. He was
first tried by the., Military Commission
which convicted his mother, and then by
a Committee of Congress ; on Wednesday
he was tried and convicted by Mr. Covode
in the House of Representatives ; and for
several weeks past lie has been on trial
before J udge Fisher, Mr. Bingham, of
Ohio, and the newspaper reporters. These
last named gentlemen, we think, might
very properly lieep their hands off, and
content themselves with sending us plain
accounts of the evidence and incidents in
the case, without discussing the bearings
of the testimony or the credibility of the
witnesses. The counsel are fully compe
tent to take care of such matters, and the
prisoner has enough on his hands without
having to face a prosecutor in every cor
respondent of the press."
Best Joke of the Season. The De
mocratic State Convention of Iowa in ses
sion at Des Moines, Wednesday, adopted
the following resolution :
Resolved, That the maintenance invio

cially tho right of each State to order and
control its own domestic institutions ac
cording to its judgment exclusively, is
essential to that balance of power on which
the perfection and endurance of our po
litical fabric depends.
This resolution has been pounced upon
and denounced by Republican journals as
the declaration of "copperheads," "rebel
sympathisers," etc., etc. The fun of the
thing is that the resolution is taken word
for word from the Republican platform of
18G0, upon which Lincoln was elected
