The Assassination of the President—
What the Rebels Think About it.
the Chattanooga Daily Rebel, Selma, Ala.
If lha news we cublished yeserday from
Senatobia is true, William H. Beward, the
cold-blooded and heartless political mis
creant, who guided the iniernal policy
which plungea us into mis djoouv aim uew
olating war, has been arrested by an angry
God in the midst of his iniquities, and has
paid the penalties of bis crimes at tbe
hands of an unknown assassin.
For ratiy vears Mr. Seward has been me
moving spirit of northern hostility to the
South, and to his enmity and ambitious de
eigns do we owe this war. It it doubtful
whether Linooln would nave nan mo nerve
to press the differences between tbe two
sections to the point of actual collision, if
Mr. Seward bad not stood at his back, and
with his devilish malice urged him on.
Doubtless. Seward bad conceived in nu
own mind soma mighty scheme of Govern
ment, in which the Soutnern ounce snouia
play but a subordinate ptrt, to tbe success
of which it was neceensary that tne in
stitution of slavery, which was a para
mount interest, and gave strength and
nnitv to the South, and enabled it to ex
ercise an important, if not a controlling
interest in tbe uovernment suouia us u en
troy ed. He declared years ago that there
was an " lrrepreseiDieconuici Between mo
Northern and Southern systems of labor,
and that the one must supersede the
other. . .
He steadilv and Dersutently punned tne
warfare uron our institutions, until he had
created a party sufficiently strong to elect
a President, and then taking the Premier
ship under that President, he inaugurated
this war with the view to tne extinction ei
slavery, though it thould involve the
slaughter and the ruin of the entire white
nsmiiiHiion ol intsa outus-.
His ambitious plans have been brought
to a bloody, we do not say fitting, conclu
sion. If it was right fsr Brutus to slay the
despotic Caesar, who shall say that the man
who slit the throat of this arch-plotter
against the lives and liberties of this peo
ple is not worthy the laurel wreath.
And Abe Lin coin, too, tbe political moun
tebank and professional joker, whom na
ture intended lor the ring of a circus, bat
hum a stranee streak of popular aeiuaion
elevated to tne Presidency he also has
fallen. Hit career was as snort as it was

shed, and his efforts to enslave heroic

the motives which prompted ine aisassins

TRIAL OF BENJ. HARRIS.
WASHINGTON, May 9.
At the trial of Benj. J. Harris this
morcing, Mr. A- Fen wick, a neighbor and
friend of Mr. Harris, was called as a wit
ness for the defense. He testified that
Chapman and Bead, saying they were pa
roled prisoners, called at his house on the
evening of the 26th of April and asked to
be accommodated for the night. He re
fused to lodge them in his house, but told
them they might go into the burn. To
the best of his knowledge and belief they
stayed in tbe barn that night. The ac
cused here closed his case.
The Judge Advocate offered as evidence
various orders of Lieut. General Grant
and General Ord, explanatory of the terms
of surrender, providing that paroled sol
dien residing south of Richmond must go
home as speedily as possible by the moi-t
direct route, and that transportation and
subsistence were not to be furnished those
who failed to go home, but that they
might go free on government boats when
in direct route to their homes.
The accused objected to the admission of
tbe order as evidence, and the court thon
adjourned until Thursday, in order to give
the accused time to prepare his defense.

The Bichmond Whig tays: On the

ded in tbe route in order to gratify the
soldiers. It was marked alternately by
cheen and groans from those who, from
time to vime, in the progress of the war,
were so unfortunate as to be inmates of its
inhosnitable walls. Whether designedly
or not, the programme of the route took
the line past (ienerai iee s residence, on
Franklin street, and those of the soldiers
who were aware of the probable proximity
of that distinguished chief of the late Con-
f ad orate armies, cneerea lustily as tne resi
dence was anDroached and passed. It is
said that General Lee stood at the closed
blinds of one of the windows and viewed
the pageant for a few minutes, w e under
stand that the route of the procession was
selected and led through the streets that
would best afford the troops an opportuni
tv of viewing the citv before which they
had been f zhting four vears for its posses
