MORNING. MAY 1,
HOW DAT, MAT 1, 18M.
The Increased Size of the Leader.
Oar re aden will observe that the
Lkadzr comes to them this meruing
increased in size. Two inches and a halt
in length have been added to each column,
thai increasing the amount of reading
matter by three columns. In this con
nection we are pleased to refer to the
general prosperity of the paper. Its cir
culation was never larger, its prospects
never brighter. We shall strive to male
the Liadib worthy the confidence of the
public, and shall soon introduce other im
portant imstrovements in it.
We would here take occasion to call the
attention of our bnsiness men to the great
circulation of the Leader as a medium for
advertising, and now that the Spring
business is fair'y opened, it behooves them
to improve the opportunity.
bensation follows sensation so quicklj
now-a-dyi, that the bewildered mind
struggles Tainly to keep up with the march
of events. We have a statement in this
morning's telegraph that a staff officer of
Dick Taylor had arrived at Mobile to ar
range for the surrender of his command.
As he has already lost ten thousand men
who have deserted to our lines, and five
thousand taken prisoners at Blakeloy and
opamsh Jrort, he cannot have many men
lelt to surrender,andof course understands
his utter inability to continue in further
contest with the whole military power of
the North. Before this time the surrender
has in all probability been consummated
This action jields to the Union every inch
of rebellious territory and surrenders every
armed rebel east of the Mississippi. If it
has been accomplished ,the capture of Jeff.
Davis would seem inevitable.
Peace has Come.
and the pro
mulgation of an order for the immediate
reduction of army expenses and the pros
pective master out of the volunteer army,
are conclusive of the arrival of peace.
They come so quietly and naturally that
nobody ts lurprised or moved at them, and
yet they mark the greatest events in the
history of the rebellion. There will net
be another battle, there will be no more
shedding of blood. The expenses of the
government are to be curtailed. The Na
tional Debt has reached its maximum, and
will be lessened rather than increased in
the future- In a few weeks our boys will
come marching home, and, laying aside the
bayonet and s&bre, will engage again in the
pursuits of peace. The authority of the
Government is reasserted, the rebellion is
crushed, and peace is established. It has
come quietly and silently, but it.has come.
The Obsequies in Columbus.
The telegraph this morning furnishes
our readers with a full description of the
reception oi and honors paid to the remains
of the President in Columbus. The capi
tal city did itself credit in the scope and
magnificence of its arrangements and in
the love and mourning dl-played on
every hand. One of the most touching
demonstraliens of affection which has oc
curred during the entire funeral prcgress
was the strewing of the street with lilacs
and other flowers. The entire arrange
ment seems to have been characterized by
excellent taste and sincere patriotism.
Booth has been placed where no human
eye can ever discover his resting-place.
Had he been allowed what is termed "Chris
tian burial," and had his grave been known,
it is more than probable that humanity
would have been shocked and the country
insulted by the obtrusive demonstrations
of aSwtion which secessionists would make
around it. His tomb would become the
Mecca to which rebels from every quarter
would make pilgrimage. It would have
been strewn with flowers and decked with
garlands. Instead, it is now washed by
the sullen waters of the Potomac. Around
his whitening bones fishes will play, and
over them will creep the slimy reptiles
which haunt the black chasms at the bot
tom of the rolling flood.
Confederate bonds are quoted in England
at 17to 18. Three months ago they stood at
nearly seventy. Some ardent lovers of sa
cession have had their fingers badly burned
i,.-rii1-n .. .fJv.w w .,-nMi,
pity them and fervently hope they are
prepared to endure with due resignation
the news of the surrender of Lee and
Johnston and the inevitable tumble of their
bonds to xero.
The fall of Bichmond monopolizes at
tention in Europe, and the papers are full
of speculations concerning its results. The
generally received opinion is that it is the
death blow to the Confederacy. If any
person in England has doubts about the
matter the news of the surrender of Lee
and Johnston will put the extinguisher
Brevet Major General Custer has been
promoted to a full Major Generalship. The
people will rejoice that this gallant and
dashing cavalry leader has received so fit
ting a recognition of his merits. Of all the
brilliant successes of the last camnaizn.
those of his division were the most decided.
PresiJent Johnson has changed the
date of the day of national humiliation
and mourning from Thursday, May 25th,
to Thursday, June 1st, the day first assign
ed being Ascension day.
The only event now lacking to culminate
the rain of the rebellion is the capture and
execution of Jefferson Davis. That alone
win startle the people from their propriety.
The amount of cotton, corn, arms, am
munition, captured at Mobile is immense.

cost of $120,000.

The Houston (Texas) Telegraph pub
lishes tbe details of a conference between
the rebel Gen. Slaughter and General Lew
Wallace, in which the former claims that
General Wallace gurranteed in case of the
surrender of the rebel forces in Texas, pro
tection to slave property, a vindication of
tbe .Monroe drctrine, and tne establish
ment of a protectorate over Mexico.
A letter from the rebel Major General
Walker, however, shows that the terms of
fered were that they must lay down their
arms, take tho oath of allegiance, and ac
cept such terms ot amnesty, pardon or for
eign exilo, as the United Slates Govern
ment would grant.
These terms the rebel Major General in
dignantly rejected, claiming that with 300,-
Ouo men yet in the field the South can
achieve her independence.
The Herald's Newborn correspondent
says the last positive information,o! Jeff
Davis' movements was that he passed
through Charlotte on his way southward,
esrorted by a brigade ol cavalry, probably
Wade Hampton's, on the 23d inst. As
General Wilson was at Macon on the 20th
and virtually held all Southern Georgia,
chances are that Davis cannot escape.

NEW YORK, April 30.
The Timea publishes several orders of
Jeff Davis to the rebel Secretary of the
Treasury, to place large sums of money to
the credit of the rebel Secretary of State
in foreign countries. These orders were
found in Bichmond after its capture.
The Herald's New Orleans special says:
Cortinas has captured Bagdad, Mexico.
The garrison was very small.
INVESTIGATION INTO THE ASSASSINATION
The Times' Washington special says:
The authorities are engaged in the most
thorough investigation of the assassination
plot, tending out in all directions in
this vicinity. Competent officers are to
take testimony, so we shall have a full and
complete history of all that haa transpired
sinoj the flight ot Booth and his accom
plice. As the iuvestigalion progresses addition
al arrests are made. The whole number
of arrests already made reaches to nearly
two hundred, principally taken from the
adjacent counties in Maryland.
The Times says all the funds required to
pay General bherman's army in full, will
be ready by tne middle of next week. It
will require eleven millions of dollais.

have been so touchingly and generously
Notwithstanding the inclement weather,
crowds have assembled at the railroad
station to take their last look at the coffin
containing all that is mortal of Abraham
Lincoln, we pass in succession Beres,

Shrouded national flags and badges of
mourning are seen at each. The rain

Guns are fired, and the bell is tolled.
Eden, 6 A. M The rain has ceased, and
there is a promise of a clear day. We pass
by several small namlets, where spectators
are assembled, and at seven o'clock we are
nearing Columbus, the Capital of the State
of Ohio, and the third State Capital we
nave visited since our departure from
Washington on our melancholy errand.
We have on board Governor Brough and

As the procession passes they all join in
singing a funeral ode. In marked but not

performed by the brass bands.
On the line we see at the Soldiers' Hos
pital a group of invalids, several of them
on crutches. They had adorned the pa

flags, trimmed with mourning, and dis
played ether evidences of grief. Several
of them, from to time, wiped the couising

The poor invalids, crippled in their
country's defence, had gathered fragrant
flowers, principally the lilac, and for sev

each side of the street through which the
procession passed. No similar mark of re

left Washington. The buildings fronting
on the streets through which the procession
passed, were, as in other cities, draped
with mourning, and thousands of persons
of Columbus and adjoining neighborhoods
witnessed tho solemn cortege.
Meanwhile the bells were tolled and can
non fired. Tbe remains were conveyed to
the Capitol, and with due cerenwny placed
on the dais previously prepared for their re

moves in a mysterious way." The arch
over the gate entering to the grounds is
partially covered with black with the motto
The remains lie in state in the Rotunda.
The west door of the Capitol was thrown
open for the entrance of the public.
;The n tunda of the capitof was draped
in mourning. The coffin was approached
by step?. It rested on a mound of mo?s
which was dotted with tbe choicest flow
ers. At the head of the coffin rested a large
floral wreath. At the corners of the plat
form on tbe floor were large vases filled
with flowers. For about seven hours there
was a constant line of spectators passing
before the remains. Bands.of music play
ed during tha afternoon on tbe terrace of
the capitol. Dirges and guns continued to
be fired at intervals during the day.
Msjr General H. Wilson, who had com
mand of the escort from Washington, will
accompany the remains as far as Indiana
polis. The remains were at last removed to the
depot, and at a few moments past 8 p. M ,
were on the way to Indianapolis, which
city we shall reach to-morrow morning. In
the afternoon a large meeting was held on
tbe east terrace. A dirge was played by
Camp Thomas band; a prayer was offared
by Bev. Dr. Dwinn. Here followed a

"I am a paroled prisoner," and added,
"I have never been a politician, and knowi
but little of political leaders I am a sol
dier." He further said he was ready to maka
any sacrifice or perform any honorable act
that would tend to the restoration of peaca
and tranquility to the country. He saiid
that, as a believer in state rights, he had
considered his allegiance due primarily ta
his native State. He had opposed seces
sion, but when his State went out he con
sidered it his duty to go with it. When ha
accepted a command under the rebel gov
ernment he considered he was serving hia
State. He regarded his surrender ot the
military of no political significance, that it
was not asurreiiderof State rights doctrine.
When the south was wholly subdued, then
only would the doctrine of State rights ba
The surrender of a single army was on
ly a military necessity. When the south
surrenders all its ferces and returns to tha
Union, then only will she surrender her fa
vorite doctrine of secession. That princi
pal will thsn be settled by military power.
On this question of State sovereignty ha
contends that there exists a legitimate!
casvi bilti. The question was left unset
tled in tbe convention forming the original
law, and the war is destined to settle it,
therefore the war raised on this issue can
not be treason. If the South is forced to
submit to it of course it can only be looked
upon as the triumph of the Federal power
over State rights and the forced annihila
tion of the latter. The South has not been
and are not yet prepared to beg for terms,
but are ready to accept fair and honorabla
terms, their own political views being con
sidered. As to slavery they consider it
dead and the beet men have long been
anxious to do away with it. - -
