Notwithstanding the denial that
United Kla'es troops had been eent
from Col umbus, 0., to St. Louis, four
car-loads of rf galara arrived here Sat
urday by tbe Yandaim road, and were
immediately sent down to Jefferson
Barracks, twelve milea routh of here
on the Iron Mountain railway. These
tioapa are ostensibly en route from Co
lumbus to Fort Leavenworth, Has ,
but are topped here temporarily.
Their presence u myateriouely con
nected with the strike, but nobody
eema to know exactly how ; at leant,
no one will give out any definite in
formation. A high olficial intimated
last night that in view of tbe inability
of the East St. Lulls and St. Clair
county (111.) authorities to afford
prompt and ample protect un to rail
road property, that an txcuse had
been made for the removal of Iroopa
from Columbus to Fort Leavenworth,
with lay over at Jefferson Bawck,
awaiting -transportation, etc. It was
true, he aaid, that no order had been
issued from headquarters oi tbe army
at Waahingtaa, or from Columbna, to
aend troons her?, and that no official
request had been made for them, bnt
all parties concerned fully understood
tbe aituation of affairs, and prompt

his intimidating threat of cutting off

The close personal friendship that
existed between Mr. David and Mr.
Hill makes th rciiuest of the com
mittee especially appropriate and the
consent of Mr, Pavia especially grati
fying. The sif M'rb eloriuence, the un
flagging enerry and tlie unquailing
devotion with wliich Mr. Hill sup
ported and dijfenddd in the Confeder
ate Senate thej adrainistration of Mr.
liavis; the noiility of soul with which
he "rose undi'r p'ressure and shone
brightest wheji weaker natures were
overwhelmed .(with despair ;" the lion
hearted courage with which he, up
right amid the clouds of a failing
cause, hia white face gleaming amid
the darkening' storm and his clear
voice ringingabove the din of battle
these are know n of all men. But be
yond this there was a loving friend
ship between Mr. Hill nnd Mr. Davis
that, kind ed in the days that tried
men's souls, strengthened as the strug
gle deepened, mrvived defeat and
was interrupted only when the
younger man, still a hero and
dauntless in tlw slow nnd terri
ble approach of death, went down
to his grave. It :s fit, therefore, that
Mr. 1 'avis should come and sit in tie
Blindow of this atitne of bis friend
w hen it shall be unveiled to the peo
ple that loves them both, and that did
all that a people jould do for the cause
in which they fought together. It is
needless to saj that a vast crowd of
tieorijiaris will welcome Mr. Davis.
The limit of that crowd will be set by
the capacity of the trains that run in
to the city. It is probable tbat tho
diUo- will be Bet for the 28th, as he will
be in Montgomery on tbe 2lith. In a
private letter to Mr. Ben Hill, jr., Mr.
Davis discusses tho proposed visit
more fully, and it is deemed best to
make tbe date so that he can come
from Montgomery to Atlanta. Mr.

A FAMOUS DISPATCH
NEWARD'H CORRECTED BT
The Beawu Clovenlng tbe Preal

! Kfadc-AB Hlaterle Mcaaolr.
Under the title of "A Famous Diplo
matic Dispatch," the North American
Jleritw lor April publiehes the fall
text, with a fao simile, of "tbe original
dispatch of Mr. .Saward, as corrected
by Mr. Lincoln, conveying to Mr. Ad
ams, our Minister at London, his firtt
full instructions after tbe outbreak of
the rebel ion." The date of the paper
Is May 21. 1661. Lincoln had been
President but eleven weeks. He ward
was bis Pecrctuy of State. Charles
Francis Adams bad been tent to tbe
Court of Saint James, in place of
Georce M. Dallas.
' This paper," says Mr. Rice, "needs
few comments to bring'tfs remarkable
character bt fore the reader. The bur
den of home affulra, which then lay
heavily on the new President, will

Mr. Seward." ,
On the 0th cf Jane, 1876, Mr. Bout

ate resolution tbat "the President be

of the Secretary of State to the, Minis

to the proclamation of ber majesty

This resolution was considered and
greed to, by unanimous consent, but
no reply waa made to it, and the pub
lic beard no more of the matter antil
thia remarkable state paper found its
way into tbe hands of tbe editor of
the jVotrt American Retinc. It "will
bear long and continuous study," lays
Mr. Rice, "and no one can examine it
without acquiring new and more
exalted estimate of Mr. Lincoln'a
many-sided powers." .
In fict, it is the opinion of many
diftinguished men, especially veratd
in diplomatic courtesy and interna
tional affairs, tbat Lincoln's modifica
tions of Seward's dispatch sived us
from a war with England at that time.
A prt of thia great state paper, in
its original form, tain the handwriting
of Mr. Seward, and other parts of it
were evidently written, at his dicta
tion, by aeveral of his clerke. The
President went over the document
thu prepared, and oidered nnmeiona
changes. He directed that omissions
be made; he smoothed asperities ; he
hightened the dignified politeness of
Mr. Seward; he changed even the syn
tax of the paper, and no unprejudiced
mind can fail to admit that every one
of hie changes was an improvement.
Tbe article must be read entire for
the full significance of this important
contribution to hitOry, aa no conden
sation of its compart matter ia practica
ble. Bat let oi aee, aa examples, a few
instances of Mr. Lincolo's modifica
tions. In the general opening of bis ie
patcb, Mr. Seward had aaid: "We in
tend ti have a clear and simple record
of whatever issue may arise between
ns sod Great Britain." The Preeident
doubtless felt there was a tonch of
harshness, if not a tinge of blaster, in
these words, and that under the cir
cumstances it could rafely be spared ;
so he wrct, "Letve oat" Mr. Sew
ard had written of the retiring Minis
ter: 'The Preeident ia surprised and
grieved that Mr. Dallas did not protest
against tbe proposed nnofficial inter
course between tbe British govern
ment nd the mlsiionaries of ihe In
surgents, as will as against the dc
macd for explanations made by the
British government." Mr. Lincoln
struck ont the phrase, "ia surprised
and grieved," and expressed his own
attitude by tbe single word "regrets."
Oppieitetbephras?,"ai well as agunst
the dumar.d for rxp anations made by
the British government," he wro'e:
"Leave ou, bera'iee it does not ap
pear that ex) Itiutiors were de
manded." In jefrenee to British in
tercmree with t'ie Siuthern "mis
sionaries,,' Mr SBward had aaid:
"Sui h au inter omue would be none
the lep uronaul lo as for being un
official." Mr. Lincoln changed
"wrongful" to -'huitful," thus mak
ing no iasne of intention or morals,
but only of resulls.
isut the rnont important change
made by the Presidant waa probably
this Mr. Seward bad said:
"When this act cf intervention is
distinctly performed, we, from tbat
hour, shall cease to be fiiende, and
hecime once more oi.toe have twict before
been, be forced lo be enemies of Great
A vait responsibility lay npon Abra
ham Lincoln, and be did not wiah to
add to it, except in the last dire emer
gency, a war with England. So he first
changed, and then struck out, the
most vehement words of Mr. Sewai d's
One more instance. With reference
to England Seward bad said: "If that
nation will now repeattbe tame great
crime." Lincoln changed both the
tone and the grammar of this phrase.
"If tbat nation," taid he, '-thali now
repeat the same great error." Here
the President relieved England from
the imputation of culpable motives.
The fac simile reproduction of the
draft of the dispatch covers thirteen
pages of the Jievicw. The original of
this document haa hitherto been more
jealously guarded than any other paper
