The Pierpont Government in Virginia.
Sinoa the annourjcment by President
Johrjton tbt tbe Pierpont government
wsa recognized i the OoTernment of the
State of Virgin', there i a goner I deire
felt to understand the hiitory of tha gov
ernment. Hany people have forgotten, if
they ever knew, the htotory of the organi
satioo of the Alexandria government of
loyal Virglntajind by many it i confounded
ilh the government of West Virginia. A
brief ittf mot of tbe fact in the cam will
therefore be of interest.
When the ttate of Virginia wag foolly
and unfairly carried out of the Union,
ap,r,inst her will, tbe Union people
still clung to the Union with an affec
tion which State pride and a belief in State
sovereignty could not overcome. Es
pecially is this true of the section
of the State lying east of the Blue Ridge.
Here, even after the war broke out, the
Union sentiment was not only predominant
but nearly univenaL Of course these
Union men, living under the Union flag,
could not and did not recognize the au
thority of John Letcher and his State gov
ernment at Richmond. They accordingly
called a meeting at Wheeling, on the 11th
of June, 18t31, and issued a proclamation,
for the election of a legislature and State
officers for the State of Virginia. The
elections were held, in a somewhat Irregular
manner, and resulted in the choice "f a
loyal Legislature and State officers, with
Francis H. Pierpont as Governor. This
government met at Wheeling and declared
itself tbe government cf the State of Vir
ginia under the old Constitution, and was
recognized as such by the National govern
ment, Senators elected by its Legislature
being rec ived into tbe United States
The project for tho div'stan of the State
was then breathed, and, under the sanction
of the legislature, a convention was held to
frame a separate State constitution for West
Virginia. Tbe new constitution was adop
(ed by the convention on the 28lh of No
vember, 16', ratified by tie people May
8d, 1862, and consented to by Gov. Pier
pont's government on the same day. The
constitution was amended on March 2th,
1863, by the adoption of a Clause mskirg
West Virginia a free State, and the new
government which was organized under it,
was recognized by Congress, and admitted
into the Union June 20lb, 1863, having
thus received the sanction of its own peo
ple, of the Pierp jnt government of Vir.
ginia, and of the Congress of the United
Statos. lis capital is Wheeling, its Gver.
nor is Arthur J. Boreman of Parkersburg,
and it is represented in Congress by two
Union Senators and three Union Congress
men. It cast its five f lcctoral Votes, at the
late Presidential election, for Abraham
This action, however, did not extinguish
the Pierpont Govtrnment, which, having
consented to the division of the State,
changed its sea' of government to Alexan
dria. Of course its functions were very
limited, being confined to the loyal terri
tory remaining in the Stale after the or
ganization of West Virginia. The Legis
lature was a polite fiction, an 1 Governor
Pierpont found very little to do, having ne
authority, of course, Outside our lines, and
finding martial law almost every where with
in them. He was frequently sadly snub
bed by Generals commanding departments
within the State. His government was
however recognized by the national author
ities, and the Senators elected before the
division of the Staler one of them
being John a Carlisle, a notorious
copperhead retained thtir seats in the
Senate. Messrs. Underwood and Segur
bave recently been elected to three posi
tions. The national House of Representa
tive, however, refused to admit theee gen
tlemen who claimed to have been elected lo
Congress from diffjrent districts in the
State. We believe no election was held in
the State last fall for President. At least
the electoral vote of tho State was not
counted. The legislature h, however,
ratified tbe Constitutional Amendment
This government has been formally re
cognized by President Johnson, and Gov
ernor Pierpont has gone to Kiohmond to
assume the government of the entire Slate.
An election lor delegates to the Legislature
and Congress will soon take place. Re
construction, therefore, as far as Virginia
is concerned, will prove an easy task.
of one of Booth's Accomplices
at Delphos, Ohio.
We learn that Carroll, the man who pro
cured the canoe in which the assassin,
Booth, crossed the Potomac river in his
flight from Washington, was arrestet at
Dolphos, O, on Tuesday afternoon last, by
Mjjr Burns, a Government iJetecuve.
Major Burns is a Cripple, having lost
the left leg in the army, and after the as
sassination was employed as a detective to
aetUl in ferreting out the guilty parties.
How it bappenid that he selected Carroll
for bis "bird'' has not transpired. Dress
ing himself as an indigent soldier, with
crutch and cane and a paper from a gov
ernment official requesting Provost Mr
sbais along bis route ot travel to aflord tbe
"poor soldior" such assistance as ne migut
need. Major Burns started on the pursuit.
He first learned of Carroll at Alexandria,
and then slowly but surely lollewed the
track until he learned that the accomplice
had a relative at or near Delpnoa, Ohio,
when the MJjt went directly to thAt place.
There his let er of recommendation secured
him much attention from those able to lend
him pecuniary aid, and enabled him
k ok about town without exciting suspicion
that he had any special business. After
remaining there a few days, he caught
siKht of Caxroll,and with astietanw followed
him into a store or saloon ana arrtsteu
him. Carroll, taken by surprise, was com
pletely overcome. It is slated that
wept bitterly, and wringing his hands, ex
claimed, "1 bey will hang mel they
bang mel" and by other expressions
evineed his fear at the approach of justice.
When the gentleman who brought
news to this city left Delphos, Carroll
in jail at that place awaiting the arrival
a guard to conduct him to Washington,

his arrest, Toledo liLade.

as rapid a sale as the preceding series
The Government will thus be enabled

against the Treasury.
PHILADELPHIA, May 12. TRIAL OF HON B. G. HARRIS.
WASHINGTON, May 12.
The Court Martial for the trial of Benj
G. Harris charged with violating the 5 in
Article of War.in harboring rebel soldiers,
resumed its proceedines to-day.
General Sharpe was sworn as a witness,
and in reply to tbe questions o the Judge
Advocate and counsal for the accused, said
ttiat he was designated by General Grant
lo receive the duplicate rolls of Lee's army
which he did. and had them with him. On
the rolls of the men reoorlel for parole of
Corse's brigade of Pickett s division, to
which the 32d Virginia regiment belonged,
be did not find the names of either
Chapman or Rted on the rolls, and
iron the evidence of those papers he
could not say whether the two men referred
to were paroled or not. He had other ev
ilorica however, which he believed woull
show that Chapman was paroled.
This latter statement was objected to as
being introduced as evidence by tha coua
s -1 of the accused.
Tha witness resunrng said that the roljg
furnished the names of only 200 men of
Corse's brigade, forty-two of wnim were
of the 32d reeiment, representing Oompa
nya 4, C, E, F, H, J aud M. Co. K, to
which Chapman and Road professed to be
long, had only the na-nes of a corporal
and two privates. The rails were furnished
by tbe commanders of Lee's army, but
mny of the commands Were so disinte
i;ratl as to render it impossible to specify
the different commanders; lor instance,
the corps of General Etrly, at the time of
its surrender, was commanded by a Lieu
tenant Colonel; A P. Hill's corps had
been merged into other commands, and at
the lime of the surrender did not exist;
besides, just previous to the suirender a
large number of men had left Lee's army,
for various reasons eome to procure food,
othe:s to escape. Many of the latter came
back in large numbers to avail themselvos
of the liberal terms offured. Some of the
troops aleo were abandoned by their gen
eral (illieeri almost immediately a ter their
surrender, who left their men to shift fjr
themsslvos. thereby c repelling us to adopt
the principle of permitting the men to be
tik--n up by any commanding officer and
General Lot's Fnvost Marshal, M-jor
Britford, took up a great many, and Gene
ral F tzhugh Lee, upon coming in, detail
ed his Adjutant General, Captain Coxe,
with our permission, to take up men of all
commands and ptrole them. Before that
in many instances, when men had refiorled
to be paroled, stating they had no oliisers,
they were sent back to the lines of the ene
my wilh a note authorizing any command
ing officer to take them up aad parole
them. A large cumber of Lee's army
were not paroled at Appomattox Court
House, but at Lynchburg and along the
South Side Railroad. The original papers
were signed by convention on both sides,
and included in the terms of surrender all
troops operating with the army of Virginia
on the th ult.
He made these statements to show that a
man's name need not necessarily be found
on the rolls of his regiment, brigade or
division, it paroled. The idea was that if
afterwards a man desires to obtain any
favor as a paroled prisoner, he roust make
reference himself to where his name is to
be found. Three were men paroled at
Appomattox Court House whose names
were not on the rolls, because the rolls
had been forwarded to General Lee. Sev
eral days previous to the surrender, a large
party of Pickett's division was captured,
inclndinir General Corse, commanding the
brieaae to wnicn tne ata v irgima regi
ment belooSfd, and at the surrender there
were found remaining in the division, only
live oflieers, a surgeon, a captain, and
three lieutenants. The rolls of officers
were intended to be made by brigades, but
disintegration was so rapid that theee fire
were all the officers oi me uiviaiou nut, iu

On opening, the Judge Advocate stated

Mr. Harris then proceeded to read his
defense to the Court staling thit he was

frip. of tha United States, and that
had not committed any offense against the
United State. He had not harbored pris
oners and it had been proved tnai tney

they were paroled prisoners and askeo
