As pertinent to the consideration of this
subject, we state the following particular?
I. The energy and promptness dis
played by cur Government in patting
down the rebellion. True, it has been
a very hard and long struggle, but
the work has been well done. We
hazard nothing in saying in view of the
number and resources of the rebels com
pared with the number and resources of
the loyal part of the Union, no so formida
ble rebellion was ever so speedily crushed.
And how quickly the vast fabric went to
pieces when the work of disintegration had

wbum no one is more competent to give an
opinion: "I can advisedly affirm that never
yet has there been any civil war, nor even
any ordinary war, in which the govern
ment has tolerated the thousandth part of
that liberty which the enemies of the gov
eminent and the friends of those enemies
enjoy among us."
II. "When cur staunch Engluh friend
Gold win Smith was in this country during
the list Presidential canvass and election,
the quiet and good order with which both
passed off made so deep an impression upon
his mind, that, in one of bis letters to an
English journal, he nude it the subject of
eepeciul comment. And, were we not bo
familiar with similar occurrences, could we
but separate ourselves from the political at
mosphere that constantly surrounds up.
that event could hardly fail to strike us with
equal force. Considering that the nation
had been four years engaged in an internal
struggle of the greatest violonce, consider
ing the passions manifested by so many
citizens, tha Presidential election of 1804
may justly be regarded one of the political
wonders of history.
III. But the lust consideration will, at
this time, strike the mind with greatest
force. "We refer to the assassination of
Mr. Lincoln and the inauguration c f Mr.
Johnson. Mr. Lincoln dies at twenty-two
minutes past seven in the morning. The
news is Cashed over a continent, producing
oetoniehment and Borrow, but not turmoil

move on without the slightest cessation or
friction. Had a similar event transpired
in France what might have bw the con
sequence? Should Louis Napoleon be
' shot in the theatre to-night, the gutters of
Paris might swim with corp-iis to-morrow.
In time of peace we migtt entertain the
most anxious forebodings; how much more
anxious had France been torn with in
testine war for four years? The same is
true, to a less extent, cf other European
powers. In England there is the least

THE EXCITEMENT AT LIVERPOOL.
[From the Liverp of Post, April 27.]
The scene on the Liverpool Exchange
to-day was such as will not for a longtime
bo toreotten. The Ame:iean news was
anxiously looked tor so far as regarded
the war news but when the whisper went
round, about a quarter ptet eleven, thai
President Lincoln had bwa assassinated,
and that the news by the Nava Scotia was
in town, piople became very inquisitive as
to who bad the private telegram; and
when, at half-past eleven, it was announc
ed that Mr. l'our ghusband, the secretary
and treasurer of toe Liverpool Exchange
news room, was in possession of Ibe news,
a terrible rush took place from the liigs
into tbe news rooni, and after a few min
utes of uproar and discontent it was an
nounced trust Mr. Youngbusbaud would
read aloud the dispf.tch from the br of tbe
news room. All was now silence. Tbe
passage wherein it was stated that Presi
dent Lincoln had beeu shot at first caused
no great dismay; but when the master of
the rooms read, " The President never ral
lied and died this morning," a more gene
ral expression of horror and consternation
was almost beyond belief even ainoni;Bt
those of the most callous nature. Cerlaia
ly there was one dissentient voice, who
amidst the sots of somo and heartfelt ex
pressions of sorrow ol a great many, had
tbe temerity to exclaim "Hurrah-" His
presence in the newsroom was of short du
ration. For, buing seizad by the collar by
as g'od a Southerner as tlr-re is in Liver
pool, he was summarily ejected from the
r.xHu the gentleman who first seized him
exclaiming " Bo otli you incarnate fiend.
You are an assassin at heart." This, how
ever, was only one incident. Even b fore
the news was guerally known tbere was a
kind of nmi;":c attraction to the Exchange;
and it is belie vod that never, since tho ap
pearance of the leeu on the Exchange
balcony, has ihure been such an iu-eui-blage
of excited men, although eorUinly
to-day there was but despondency and dis
may in place of acclamations of loyalty.
Uf course many people believe that the as
sassination was a cauard, gut up for a pur
pose, and naturally rusucd to the Ameri
can Consul's office for a verification ot the
announcement. The Consul wss unable
to do so, simply because all dispatches for
the American Corsu's in England must
first go to the United States Euilacy in
London. In the course of the afternoon,
howevdr, t'jo fl half-intst over
the Consul's office dispelled the
hopes of those who were in expec
tation that the report of the assassination
waa untrue. In the course of tbe aftor
ternoon tbe Sag on the Exchasge building
was placed at half mast, and a deputation,
irrespective of American prty feelings,
proceeded to the Town Hail, in order to
consult with the Mayor as to the desirabil
ity of holding a public jnee'.ing for tbe
purpose of sending out, by to morrow's
steamer, an address of condolence to tbe
people of the United Slates. Tho Mayor
being absent no definite arrangement was
arrived at ; but tha depu'y Mayor gave
orders that the Town tiali flig should be
at once hoisted half mast. The American
ships in the river and in Ike docks, as soon
at the news was known, hoisted "half high"
fUgs, and in many instaucus the Union
Jack and tbe Stars and rHrips wore bound
together with crape or black cloth. "We
underetind, however, that this evt nii g or
to-morrow morning a meeting of Ameri
can shipmasters will be held, in ordur to
adopt measures to be taken by them upon
tbe present lamentable occasion. Tbn dis
patch which related to the doith of Fred
erick Seward increwod the general gloom
and agitation, and further news acted against
United Status stocks, wbi'e at tbe same
time, although Confederate bonds were
rather brisk in the morning, they declined
to about yesterday's cl sing prices. As a
matter of course the melancholy and un
expected news had a mostdepre sing etf.ict
on the Northerners and Souther? ; the lat
ter vied with tbe former in expressiig re
gret and indignation at the crimes of
Booth and his fellow ansasiin, deploring
the catastrophe as most iLjuriois to their
cause, and repudiating the ruTians as
Southerners. The Treei-Jom of tbe South

members of the club, who happoned to be
present, for the pirpose ot ascertaining

[From the London Times, April 29.]

ly in diplomatic or political collision, xle
might have been regarded as not much
mure to us than tbe bead of any friendly

stirrel tbe feelings of the public to their
utmost depths. A space of twenty-four
hours has suffi ced to till the country not
only with grief and indignation, but to
evoke almost unprecented expression of
ieoling from constituted bodies. It was but
on Wednesday that the intelligence
reached us, and on Thursday the House of
Lords and Commons, the corp iration of
London and the people of our chief manu
facturing towns, in public meetings assem

MR. LINCOLN'S LOSS TO AMERICA IRREPARABLE.
[From the London Times.]
The American news which wo publish
this morning will bo received thronghout
Europe with sorrow assincereand pruf und
as it awokeeven in tbe United Stains lhem
se'ves. Mr. Lincoln has fallen at tbn hands
of an assassin, and Mr. Seward lias too
probably shared his fate. Deals of
iuch atrocity cuver their perpetrators vnth
everliistaia infamy, and dw.redit ihe caujie
thru are pretumably meant to serve. We
trust it will appear tbat tbe crimes of
Wilkes Boolh and his accomplice were coo
ceivtd and executed in concert with no one
but themselves. Tbe South, brokon and
defeated, could receive no possible benefit
from tbe removal of Mr. liintoln and Mr.
duward ; the loo probable ulloct of the crime
is an accession of madness and anger, ren
dering all schemes of reconstruction im
possible. Uu tbe other hand, the waving
of a knife before the affrighted audience at
the taeatrn, and tbe Sic semper tyraiwis,
pronounced by tbe assassin, indicate tbe
vanity of men willing o iminortalixiinem
selves, like Eratostralus, though the world
should perish. Unjust as we believe it to
be, the Confederate cause will not escape
tie diaboior cast upon it bytnewanun
murders of Mr. .Lincoln and tbe secretary.
The admiration won by tbe long and gal
lant defence ol Hichmond will bu lessened
tbe memory of Lite's lofty bearing and
Jackson's deep religious feeling will bi ob
scured, by the atrocities commuted in .the
name and on behalf of the South. Arson
in New York, tltefl under the pretence of
war m 1 ermont, and ajisassmatiort vi tie
capital, dim the lustre of a four pears' re
tvitancc to mperior forces and of many a
well fought field in Virginia.
Tbe critical condition ol a Hairs in
America, Ibe position of the Southern
Mates at the fuel of their victorious an tag
onisis, the gigantic task of reconstruction
which miui be undertaken by the political
leaders of the North, and, above all, tbe
unpromising character ol Ibe man w horn
an accident bas made the ruler of the Union
for the next four years, tend to exalt our
e-tiuiate of tbe loss which tho States have
sul'i'jrtd in the murder of their President
but it would be unjust not to acknowledge
tbat Mr. Lincoln was a man who eou d nut
wulerany circumstances, have been easily
iciiliic d. Starting from a humble position
to one of the gn atest eminence,and adopted
by the republican party as a maKeshilt,
simply because Mr. Seward and their other
prominent leaden wore obnoxious to differ
ent sections of tbe party, it was natural that
bii earoer should be watched wilh jealous
suspicion. The office cast upon him was
great, its duties were must onerous, and
the obscurity of his past career affjrded no
guarantee of his ability to discharge them.
His shortcomings, moieover, were on the
surface. Tho education of a man whose
early years had been spent in earning
bread by manual labor bad necessarily
been defective, and faults of manner and
errors of taste repelled the observer at tbe
outset. In spile ot these drawbacks Mr.
Lincoln slowly won for himself the respect
and confidence of alL His perfect honesty
speedily became apparent, and what is,
perhaps, more to his credit, amid tbe many
unstudied speeches which be was called
upon from time to time to deliver, imbued
though they were with the rough humor
of his early associations, he was in none of
tbem bolrayed into any intemperance of
language towards his opponents or towards
neutrals. His utterances were apparently
careless, but his U nguo was always under
command. The quality of Mr. Lincoln's
administration, which served, however,
more than any other to enlist the sym-p-thy
of the bystanders, was its conser
vative progress. He felt his way gradu
ally to his conclusions, and those who will
compare the different stages of his career
one with another will find tbat his mind
was growing throughout tbe course of it
What may be tbe actual destiny of the
United Mates deprived of the guiding
hand of Mr. Lincoln and rf the experience
of Mr. Seward no one would venture to
foretell. In compliance with the provision
of the constitution, Mr. Andrew Johnson
his assumed the Presidency for the rest of
Mr. Lincoln s term. At tbe time when
the last mail left Mew York tbe S ales had
not recovered from tbe feeling of horror
and astonishment which bsd been created
by the news of Mr. Lincoln's assassination;
but the possibility of Mr. Johnson's suc
ceeding to the Presidency had been dis
cussed whan such an event was thought
highly improbable, and it was earnestly
deprecated by a.l parties. Tbe indecorous
exhibition upon Jibe occasion of tte in
auguration of Mr. Johnson as Vice Presi
dent was of a piece with his previous
career, and, indeed, tbe memory of bis
conduct as Governor of Tennessee must
fill every American with tbe gloomiest
forebodings. Oa the other hand, anything
like a violent interruption of tbe siH-erts.
sion is a thing which an American citizen,
with his almost idolatrous veneration
for the constitution would shrink from
instinctively. The best solution of tbe
difficulty would be a voluntary resignation
by Mr. Johnson of an cilice which no one
ever seriously intended him to fill, and if
his own sense of decency does not suggest
tii? course to him it maybe hprd tb t
such a pressure of public opinion will be
brought to bear upon him that be may 1m
lod to adopt it. Hw instant assumption of
tbe Presidency was probably deemed ne
cessary, and, under such exciting circum.
stances, little can be gathered from tbe
few words uttered by Mr. Ji hnson whet
tbe oath of office was administered to him.
Such as they are, they point to a reoluiion
to execute the duties of the post, but tbe
influences by which the incoming President
is surrounded cannot be favorable to his
retention of office. General Grant and
Sherman sre bjtb in or near Washington,

Conlederate resources. Neither they nor

wish to see the work on which they hava
been engaged eo long, and on which so
much life and treasure has boea epoct,
wasted because it baa fallen, to a hand
which it incompetent to carry it through.
The task which lies before the President
and bis Cabinet u the most considerable

men for several generation!. It wat
doubtful whether M r. Lincoln could have
accomplished It; it 1s morally certain that
Mr. Johnson cannot. The fate of a nation
hangs . in the balance, and we wait with
anxiety to see which way it win turn.
MR. LINCOLN THE FINEST CHARACTER DEVELOPED
BY THE WAR.
[From the London Star, April 27.]
For Abraham Lincoln one cry of uni
versal regret will be rained aU over the
civiliz-xl earth. We do not believe that
even the fiercest partisan of tbe Confeder
acy in this country will entertain any eon-
t'ment at sucn a lime but one oi gnei anu
horror. To us Abraham Lincoln has al-
wavs Eeemed tho finest character produced
by the American war on either side of the
struggle. He was great, not merely by
thelorceof gunius and only the wold
genius will describe the power of intellect
by which ne guiuea niinseu ana nis coun
try through such a crisij but by the Biui
ple natural strength and grandeur of his
character. Talleyrand once said of a
meat American statesman, that without
experience he 'divined" his way thiough
any crisis. JUT. Lincoln in us uivneu nu
wav through ibe perilous, exhausting and
unorecedenled difficulties which might well
have broken the strength and blinded the
prescience of the best trained professional
statesman, ile seemed to arrive by msiinci
by the instinct of a noble, uose tish and
manly nature 'ittne very enun wuicu mo
tugboat of political goiius, the longest of
political experience, cou'd have done no
more than reacn. lie. bore mmseu iear
lessly in danger, calnffy in difficulty, mod
estly in success. The would at last was be
ginning to Know nowgooa, ana, inino
best seiise, how great a man be was. It
had long indeed learned tbat he was as de
void of vanity as of fear; but it had only
justcinie to know what magnanimity and
mercy tne nour oi triumpn wouia prove
tbat he possessed. Ki'luctaHt enemiit
were iust beginning to break into eulogy
over his wiso and noble clemency when the
dastard hand of a vile murderer destroyed
hie noble and valuable life. We in Eng
land have something to feel ashamed of
when we meditate upon the true greatness
of tbe man so ruthlessly slain. Too many
Englishmen lent themselves to the vulgar
and ignoble cry that was raised against
him. English writers degraded themselves
to tbe level of tbo coarsest caricaturists
when they had to toll of Abraham Lincoln
Thoy stooped to criticize a foreign patriot
as a menial might comment on tne bearing
of a hero. They sneered at his manners,
as if Cromwell was a ChesWiield ; they
accused him of ugliness, as if Mirabeau
was a beauty; they madecoars pleasantry
of his figuro, as if Piel was a posture mas
ter; they were facetious about his dress, as
if Cavour was a D'Orsay ; they were in
dignant about bis jokes, as if Palmerston
r.ever jested. We do not remember 'any
instance since the wildest days ot Briti-li
fury against the "Corsican Ogre," in which
a foreign statesman was ever so d-tall with
in English writings as Mr. Lincoln. And
when we make the comparison we cannot
but remember tbat while Napoleon was our
unscrupulous enemy Lincoln was our
steady friend. A -wailed by tbe coarsest at
tacks on this side of tha ocean, tried by the
sorest temptations on that, Abraham Lin
coln calmly and steadfastly maintained a
poicp of peace with England, and nuver
dnl a deed, never wrote or Epoke a word
which was unjii-t or unfiiendly to the
British nation. Had Euch a man died by
tbe hand of disease in the hour of bis tri
umph the world must have mourned for nis
loss. That he has fallen by the coward
band of a vile assassin exasperates and em
bitters tbe grief beyond any power of lan
guage to express.
Had Lincoln been a vain man he might
almost have ambilioned such a death.
The weapon of tbe murderer bas made
sure for him an immortal place in history.
Disippoiutment, failure, political c targe,
popular caprice, the efforts of rivals, the
malice of enemies, can touch him no more.
Ho lived long enough to accomplish, his
great patriotic work, and then he became
[From the London Daily News, April 27.]
In tbe hour of his great work done, Pros
idont Lincoln has fallen." Not, indeed, in
the flush of triumph, for no thought ot tri
umph was In tbalhonjst and humble heart,
nor in the intoxication of applause, for the
fruits of victory were not yet gathered in
bis band, was tbe Chief of the American
people, the foremost man in the great
Christian revolution of our age, struck
down. In all time to come, not
among Americans only, but among all who
think of manhood as moie than rank, and
sot worth aboveditplay, tbe name of Abra
ham Lincoln will be bold in reverence. A
purity of thought, word and deed never
challenged, a disinterestedness never sus
pected, an honesty of purpose never im
pugned, a gentium ss and tenderness that
never made a privale enemy or alienated
friend these are indeed qualities which
may well make a nation mourn. But he
had intellect as well as good n ens. Cautious
ly conservative, fearing to pass tbe limits
of established system', seeking the noedful
amendments rather from growth than al
teration, he p oved himself in the crisis the
very best suited for his post.
Mr. Johnson's character will be discussei
during the next few days, just as Mr. Lin
coln's was not long ago. Two months sgo,
few people in this country had even heard
of Mr. Johnson ; now nothing is more
common then to hear Ibe most conclusive
judgments pronounced on his character.
An evening cotemporary spoke ot him
yesterday as a "drunken mechanic " This
is the kind of language that we have to
guard against. Ot course, if the phrase
correctly represents the facts, it is not be
cause Mr. Johnson can dispose of fleets and
armies that we are to hold our tongues.
We therefore wish to stale the result of in
quiries we have thought it our duty to make.
Of the incident so regretablo,so untoward,
which occurred at the tecent installation,
we know just as much and just as little as
our coleniporaries. But we are assured by
those wbo cannot but know the facts, and
we entirely believe, that that incident can
not, without injustice and injury, be taken
to represent the character of Mr. Johnson.
Those who know him well, describe him as
a man of real capacity and of temperate
habits. Mr. Johnson was elected from the
great Southern Mate of Tennessee to rep
resent it as a Senator in Congress before
the War. Sinco the war he was chosen
by Mr. Lincoln ss Military Governor of
Tennesse. These are testimonials such as
are not given to habitual drunkards, or to
men whom nature hae marked out for me
chanical pursuits. Let us wait awhile and
see how Mr Johnson behaves before we
pass judgment on him. It is our interett,
at well as our dnty.
[From the Fall-mail Gazette.]
Since the day when Henry IV. was stab
bed by Bavaillac, a fouler, or more detes
table, or more deplorable event tban tbe
amassination of President Lincoln was
never committed in this world. The loss
itself is unspeakably great, not only to the
United Stales, but to ourselyes. He was
our best friend. He never lent himself to
the purposes of that foolish and wicked mi
nority which tried to tot enmity between
America and England. He never said or
wrote an unfriendly word about u. It
would be hard to show tbat ha made one
false step in the management of the great
trust committed to him He is gone and
is to be succeeded by Mr. Andrew John
son, whoforihe next four years' will be tht
grtatest jwtenlaie in the world, except per
heps, the Vr.pr. It is impossible to estimate,
it is not even easy to exaggerate the calam
ity. If there is tbe let st reason to suspect
tbe Southern leaders of any sort of com
plicity with this awful wickedness, it will
damn ttwir cause for ever, and justify the
harshest things said against them.
The Troy Tiirfs says: Kov. Mr. Duryea,
of New York, was ai reeled in Buffalo a
day or two before Booth's death, on suspi
cion of being tbe assassin of the President.
Mr. D. observed numerous glancet at his
p's n while riding in tbe cars, and upon
going to his hotel he proceeded to his room,
made a fiw alterations in his toilet, and
called for a carriage. The anxious crowd
considered tti as pretty good proof that
he was the identical J. Wilkes, and pro
cured his arrest. Of Ourse, sfier an ex
planation, Mr. .Duryea was unconditionally
released. , ,

visit New York for that purpose, and who
can not he successfully treated excopl alter
a personal examination. His practice bas
been sosuccessful that he bas repealed his
visits to Cleveland several tiir-es. Still he
finds tbat it is almost a difficult for some
parlies desiring bis eervico, to visit bim st
Cleveland, that in compliance with tbe ro
qests of many cilizojs, he Has consented,
before returning to Europe, to visit several
central points in Northern Ohio, making
Cleveland his henliiiartcrs so that all who
desire can consult bim.
Pur the past twelve years Dr. Ligbtbill
has paid occlusive aUcntion to the treat
ment of duafnuvs and catarrh in i s vari

until a lew months p"t, be was usso-ial4d
wilh his cousin, Dr. K B. Lightbill, and,
together, they have acquired a st inding
which has earned for tbe " l.ighihill in

1)B. Lkihtbill Dear Hir: Allow mo
to ex preen iny grateful thanks for the skill
and kind attention ronderud to my daut;h
ter, whose ears have baen badly alJoctwl
for many years, and for some months iiatt
bas been nearly deprived of henring. 'i'Ue
loss of this important ten-e is certainly
sad deprivation, painfully embarrassing,
and to a degree known only to those who
have experienced it It', therefore, thorn
be a remedy lor this great evil, the cauve
of humanity obviously requires toat
should be universally discvmiuattwl. 1 Inul
it my duty, therefore, and it nlflirds me
much pleasure, to giveuiy testimony to the
nappy euectsot your treatment ana reme
dies. Jdy daughter has sutlored Irvm deaf
ness since early ch liuuoou. lue lelt ear
has been badly diseased. Tha r it; lit ear,
also, for several year, was mriL-uly hU.ol

It was wilh extreme diuiculty thru she
could participate in theoonvenration 'f her
friends, and lor two years has boon deprived
ot this source oi sucial enj-iynumt. llip
pily my attention was directed to your ad
vertisement, and 1 was induced to place
her in your care. Your treatment, under
favor of a kind rrovidonco, has been sue-
eaaful. Iter hearing, so far as I can judye,
appears to be perfectly restored. Whether
this restoration is ueruianeut is a nueslion
lime alone can deterii ine, but present re
sults are certainly very gralliying.

Truly and gratefully your,

From Rev. tretL S. Jewell. Professor of lite

Dr. LinUTHiLL Dear Sir : Under date
of March HI sent you a careful statement
of my case, my torm.ir treatment, my fail
ure to obtain reliel in that direction, my
resort to your treatment and ilu bonclicial
1 have been, from the winter of tbe yar
1844, subject to violent periodical attacks
of catarrh, marked by febrilo lyntp-oins,
violent inuamiuation ol tbe lining mem
branes of the cavities of tbe head, accom
panied in tbe first tUges by a watery dis
charge Irom the nose, suDwjueutly becom
ing acrid und yelloft. and toward;) the dote
of the attack purieut and bloody, i biwe
attacks produced a uioet dulrotting species
of headache, occurring periudically each
day for a period varying from one to three
week, sometimes so violent as to incapac
itate ine for business, and con line me to
my b'xL At times the attendant in nam
niation would extend tir the teeth, pro
ducing toothache, or to the throat, occaeion-
ing hoarseness ana p.irUHl loss ot voice ;
and twice within the la-t lew years it has
so affected the right eye as to cunline me
or weeks to a darkened rooin.
1 had tried medicines and applications
of various kind?; snufl'a andother catarrhal
preparations of some half a dizen kinds;
applications to the head of camphor, ginger
and hot loaientntioa ol dilferent kinds
and in connection wilh these the usual
emetics and cathartics employed to induce
counter action. Hut noi e of these had
produced any permanent improvement,
aud in the lew instances in which tempo
ral relief was afforded, it was at the ex
pense of so much strength as to leave me
greatly exhausted. Under those circum
stances I was led, though with some re
luctant, from tho supposed incurability of
the disease, to make a trial of your treat
ment. I found it soon beyond even my
hopes, reaching the diseaie as it bad never
been reached before, and a levialing its
symptoms to an extent which I had sup
posed impossible. At the time when 1
gave you my former certificate, while 1 did
not feel assured of a eouiplole cure, I had
obtained a material relief which amply
repaid me for my trial of you treatment,
and which satisfied me that that treatment
Was as effective as it was simple and philo
sophical. A subetaniial escape from my
old attacks of catarrh, for the almost un
precedented period of nearly half a year,
and that in spile of severe attacks of ill
oex, which would have f.irmoriy rendered
such an occurrence inevitable, was, to me,
proof of an important success. It is now
six months since I tent you tbat statement
and while it is ui pleasant forme to appear
thus constantly, and" in this guise, belore
the public, it seems to ma a inater of sim
ple justice to yourself and to these who
may be sufTering as I wax, to sdd that I
am not on ly as lu!!y satisfied as to the util
ity and efficacy cf y: ur treatment ot ca
tarrh as 1 was six months ago, but I am
now of the belief tbat if there is such a
thing as a euro lor Ciibonic Catakbh, in
case a substantial cure nag been effected.
