George N. Sanders Appeals for Sympathy.
The secessionists in Montreal have been
looking up A greet excitement over An Al
leged Attempt to kidnap that worthless ad
venturer and scoundrel, George N. San
ders, And carrying him to the United States.
The whole story of the alleged attempt is
rehearsed with the greatest particularity of
detau. And a correspondent of the New
York Herald sent a sonsational letter to
lis paper describing the u nefarious plot. '
.But it turns out, as the telegraph to-night
informs us, that the whole affair is an in
T.xttioB of the fertile brain of Sanders, And
wai originated for the sake of raiting a
little sympathy with the resident seces
sion aits. That whole game is blocked now,
Mr. banders. The Confederacy is dead,
stnd the Canadian gentlemen who knelt At
Its feet while it was a power, have no tears
to shel over its grave. Yon were once A
plenipotentiary, George, now yoa Are, in
Canadian eyes, a bore end A nuisance.
They are lelling a good Joke of Mr.
Gladstone, to the effect that he went to
IiAmbeth the other day to make a speech at
tite Workingmen's exhibition. The door
keeper did not know him, end demanded
five shillings for admission. "Five ehU
XiagA,1' smid Mr. Gladstone, "is not that
more than your usual fce for Admission 7"
Ob ym," said the door-keeper: "but the
Chancellor of the Exchequer is to speak
to day, and so we have raised the price."
It said Mr? Gladstone paid the money, and
of hearing his own speech.

The Herald's Washington special S"ys
that among the latest reports from South

from the Commissioner at Selma, Ala. The
writer describes the situation in Alabama
as somewhat unpromising for anything
more than the production of crops neces
sary for home consumption, and says the
country fcAS been in the trail of so many
raids during the war that the plantations
are exceedingly destitute of slock or im
plements. The Commissioner refuses to
authorize any contract with negroes that
does not call for proper .compensation, un
less he has positive assurance that the
planter proponing employment hta noth
ing to pay with, and it is obvious the ne
groes willdo well if they Are insured support
for a year. He Also remarks that maki ng all
allowance for the captiousness of their for

labor of negroes ii not what it should be.
It is characterized as fitful end deficient.
Believed of a great xrl of the terrors of
the lash, the negroes have not come under
a sufficient power of motive to supply its
place. They are desirous of hving mat
ters in their own hands And in their owe
way, nor do they have any adequate appre
ciation of the nature of their contracts and
are ooaiinually leaving most advantageons

THE HUBBARD COAL BANK
Details of the Rescue of the Imprisoned
[From the Mahoning Courier, August 2d.]
On Wednesday evening last, about half
past four o'clock, the water being deemed
sufficiently low ia the mine, it was entered
by several miners who made their way,
through water almost np to their necks, to
the room where the two men, Terrid and
Bowen, were, at tha di ill-hole. They were
then conducted to the mouth of the pit and .
one of them was strong enough to walk out
alone. Attention was then turned to the
brothers Miller, and several attempts were
made to reach them, but without success.
It was the prevailing opinion that they
were dead, and this led some that had beeu
working faithfully to give up hopes of
their recovery alive, and consequently,
efforts in behalf of the unfo'tun&te men 1
began to abate. However, About eleven
o'clock An engine with several cars arrived
from loungstown, and a coupled railroad .
men, Mr. James Murray, foreman of the
railroad yard, and the conductor of the
Hubbard Branch railroad, Mr. U. iSarner.
resolved on finding Item, dead or alive.
in company with a lad as guide, wbr,
when the flood came into the mine, was
driving a mule team, cut the tra
ces, and escaped with them, they entered,
and were soon making their way, neck
deep in water, dragging a small boat, made
for the purpose, after them. Their pro
gress was alow, but in time they reached a
very narrow place through which they
must pats. The two mentound they couid
not carry, Alone, the unfortunate Millers
through this place without assistance. Re
turning to the surface, they received rein
forcements, but on reaching the same place
it looked so dismal all but two backed out.
Again more men were called to their aesUl
ance, this time with better succefs. Ropes
had been provued, and one man taking
one end of it took the lead, the others fo -
lowing at the distance ot two or three
yards, in single file. In this way they
reached the room where the mt-n
were supposed to be, and were
rejoiced to bar the brking of a dog
that was known to be with them
The men were found alive in a sitting
posture, the water up to their wants, al
most completely benumbed, and scarcely
able to speak. Afraid to expose them too
suddenly to the tresh air, they were placed
an the boat, taken to a higher room.
wrapped in blankets, and retained there
about an hour, when they were brought
out, after being in that terrible room five
days and six nights. It was now daybreak,
nearly four o'clock, and the men being
cared for, the excited company left for home
llow the men kept themselves alive was
learned as soon as they sufficiently recove
ed to speak. It appears that the men who
were first released got through their work,
and started to come out, but, surprised '
to soon find themselves in waterontinued,
suspecting something went wrong ; they
waded till they ecu d see the water almoet
touch the roof, aud here they turned to yo
back, 'l he room where the Millers were
working was low, the water rushing in
compelled them to retreat : but before so
doing, tbey made an effort to escape.
At this time the lour men were ap
proaching at right angles, could hear each
other wading in the water and interchang
ed A few words. Finding all retreat cut
off each pvtty retired higher up, each sup
posing the others were dead. The Millers
went to the room where they were found :
the water rising even there within about
three inches of the tot t, compelling them
to throw their beaua back to keep their
faces out of water. Their position will be
understood when we state that the ceiling
was but four and a half feet from the floor.
Both men slept alternately, and waked the
other by vigorous shaking, until the water
fell sulbciontly to allow them to sit down.
The men are now fast recovering, And
