rA prize fight for a purse of S'1,000,
between Dunn, a noted bruiser of Brooklyn,
N. Y. and Davis, a rough of the same kid
ney of Philadelphia, came off at Matamoras,
in- Pike county, on Tuesday last. Forty
three rpunds were fought, occupying one
hour and forty minutes, when Davis's second
threw up the sponge and Dunn was declared
victor. Davis, and his party, passed this
place, on their way to Philadelphia, yester
day. Davis's "mug" indicated, most em

Tho Arrest- of JefE Davis.
A most gratifying piece of intelligence, to
be found in this week's paper, is the assur
ance of JelT. Davis's arrest. That arch-traitor
is now in a fair way to get a sure measure
of reward for the evil which he has inflicted
upon the country; and it will be a stmnge
thing indeed if, with all the evidence at
hand, that reward does not prove to be about
eight feet of stoutly spun hcinp. Jeff, was
clothed in woman's gear, and would, probably,
have escaped had it not been for a pair of
hoots which attracted the attention of his
pursuers, and which he handled too scientif
ically through the brush for a woman. .A
laughing incident connected with the arrest
was the assurance given to some of the blue
coats, by Mrs. President Davis, that if they
were not careful how they vexed Mr. Presi
dent Davis, he would certainly hurt some of
them. We arc pleased to be able to an
nounce that none of the b'.ue coats tremble!
at the assurance.
The trial of the assassination conspira
tors is now progressing- at Washington
before a military court, composed of Gen
erals Hunter, Harris, aud others. The
prisouers are David C. Harold, Lewis
Paine, Kdward Spanglcr,of Ford's theatre,
Michael O'Laughlin, Samuel Arnold,
Atzeroot, Mrs. Surratt and Dr. Mudd,
the physician who set Booth's leg.
Thomas Ewing, son of the Ohio cz-Sena-tor,
Rcvcrdy Johnson, of Maryland, and
several other counsel appeared for the
accused. The first testimony taken in
the case the Goverument deems it neces
sary for the present to withhold from the
public. Some objection was made to Mr.
Johnson appearing as counsel on account
of his having, as was alleged in a letter
written at the time of Maryland Conven
tion, expressed his disregard of the sanc
tity of.an oath. After a satisfactory ex
planation bciug given by Mr. Johnson
the objection was 'withdrawn. The testi
mony as far. as published is of a rather
general character, and goes to show the
familiarity existing between Dr. Mudd
and Uooth previous to the assassination,
and that they had a private interview at
Washington. Booth was also a frequent
visitor at Mrs. Surratt's, where long con
sulations were held by them. Atzerott
was also there at the time. The evidence as
far as given is confirmatory of the report
that have been published concerning the
fcllowshp existing between the parties.

Mr Editor: Permit mc to occupy a por
tion of your paper with a few thoughts con
cerning the Slaveholders Rebellion.
Now, that the' ''Peculiar Institution" is
dead, it may not be inappropriate to give it
a 2'ost mortem examination, and endeavor to
ascertain the cause and locality of the fear
ful malady which, likeji destroying angel
has passed through thc-l&nd, leaving death
and destruction in its wake. That the de
mon, Slavery, has been the household od of
the wealthy class, or the chivalry, as these
Southern Knights love to call themselves, is
proven by the zeal and fanatacism with which
they nursed it; yea, cherished it as a man
doth the partner of his bosom. Indolence
and pride, and love of money, and a passion
for power to rule over their fellow men form
ed the germ which brought forth thisdisease
and located it in the brain of the Southern
Aristocracy; and it was indolence that pro
duced the falacious idea that it was necessa
ry to have a retinue of servants, and to en
gage in a nefarious traffic in human flesh,
in order to gain a position par excellence in
American society. And woe to the .person,
in their midst, who darcd.to express scnti
ments in contravention, of this idea ; or who
dared to whisper to the bondmen that there
was such a boon as liberty, prepared by the
Almighty, for all the sons of men
Many of the professed ministers of Christ,
in order to tickle the cars of wealthy mem
hers, and stifle the voice of a reproving con
science, polluted the sanctuary of God, and
disgraced their holy calling, by their constant
cry of ''Servants obey your masters, and
render to them the labor, due ; not with eye
service, as men plcascrs,but as unto God."
Even if it was to ihc tearing away of the
child from its mother's breast, or the separa
ting of husband and wife, or parents and
children forever, all was to he submitted to
cheerfully under the decree of obedience.
But these ministers forgot that other com
mand of God tlut whom He had joined to
gether man might not put assunder; and
they forgot, also, to exhort masters that it
was their dutyto observe, towards their ser
vants, the golden rule, and do to others as
they would have that others should do unto
The churches legislated, in their eccle
siastical bodies, to make slave-holding and
trading respectable, and, if possible, to give
the peculiar institution a character of divini
ty. The State Legislatures threw their pro
tecting arms around it, to save it from tailing
into disrepute, and from the interference of
those who could not sec, eye to eye, with
them in enslaving their fellow men. The
National Congress was invoked in its behalf,'

precisely similar in tenor, form and

that the Government reserves the
