THTIES33AY. JTJHE 1, 1865.
07-The Express Train, on the D. L. &
W. Railroad, which commenced running on
the 22d ult., is a great convenience to the
public, and promises to be a complete sue
cess. The train going South passes the
Stroudsburg Depot at G:4B p. mM and the
train North at 8:53 p. m. Passengers reach
New York by 10:30 p. ra. Wo learn that
arrangements are about completed for a close
connection with trains to Philadelphia.
0OThc wires for the new Telegraph to
this place arc all up, and communication
with the outside world was established yes
terday. It is the United States Tclegrapl
Company under whose auspices the line is
erected, and not the American, as wc men
tioncd a week or two ago. The thanks ofl
our citizens are due to the Company, as well
to Mr. II. A. Clule, the efficient supcrinten
dant, for the early completion-of the line.
Woolen Factory Burned.
The Woolen Factory of Troctor, Kerr &,
Co., at Maple Grove, in this county, together
with til the machinery, &c, was destroyed
by fire on Friday night last. We have not
heard tho loss, which must bo heavy, ostima
ted. There was no insurance. It is not
known how the fire originated.
ayWc have heard rumors, for a cou
ple of weeks past, of efforts being made
to establish a cotton or woolen factory on
a large scale in our borough, under the
joint auspices of home aud Eastern capi
tal. Wc hope the matter will not end iu
mere rumor. Nothing would tend so
much to build up our borough, and the
country, as the establishment of factories
here. Wc have splendid water powers,
and every facility of transportation, with
nearness to market, to make this one of
the most importaut manufacturing points
in the State. All that is wanting is vim
aud enterprise on the part of our capital
ists. vCtThc trial of the conspirators, en
gaged in the assassination of" President
Lincoln, &c, is still progressing. Por
week past the Court has been engaged in
examining witnesses for the defencc.-
Thc evidence for the prosecution is alto
gether damaging to the prisoners, while
that forJ.he defense goes but a little way
in mitigation of the crime charged against
them. It is supposed that the evidence
will be closed and the argument commen
ced to-day. A few days, at most, will
settle the fate of the prisoners..
Terriific Explosion in Mobile.
On the morning of the 24th of May, tlie
main Ordnance Department, in Marshalls
Warehouse, at Mobile, blow up, with a ter
rible cxplosian. Eight squares of building:
c. e nesiroyca, nve nunureu persons were
buried in the ruins, eight thousand bales of
cotton were burned, and two steamer?, with
all on board were destroyed. The city was
generally injured by the explosion. The loss
js estimated at $3,000,000. The cause of
the explosion is not certainjy ascertained.
President Johnson has issued his procla
mation, setting forth who may and who may
not, among those engaged in the rebellion,
come into full citizenship on taking the oath
of allegiance. Those rejected by the Proc
lamation, are divided into fourteen classes,
and can only secure pardon and the restora
tion of property rights, upon special appli
cation. Restoration of property in Slaves
will not, under any circumstances be allowed.
The President has also issued a Procla

His indebtedness for wiucs and suppers
was piled up to fifteen hundred dollars.
In addition to this he had succeeded in

Some additional-facts were learned yes
terday from a Mr. Sloan, of this city, who
was also "sold" to some extent by this ad
venturer. Mr. Sloan states that he was
formerly employed in Mayor Gunther'
ofnee, but he became acquainted with
this bogus "General" Ooolbaugh, being
referred to him by one or both the mem
bers of the firm of Messrs. Brown -and
Chatfield, lawyers of this city, who do not
appear to have suspected at that time bu
that Coolbaugh was all he repreaentcd
himself to be ; Coolbaugh made essential
ly the same representations to Mr. Sloan;
that is, that he was a general of the Mex
can liberal army, and engaged him for his
secretary, promising him also the commis
sion of first lieutenant on his staff when

had on a Mexican general's uniform that
he .showed as a part of his credentials,
and claimed to be ou intimate terms with
Ortega ; Coolbaugh lived iu the most ex
pensive manner on "tic," aud borrowed
money; he borrowed aigreat deal of mon
ey from various persons who, doubtless.
arc very anxious to sec him about this
time; Mr. Sloan states that Mayor Gun
ther was among the invited guests at one
of the grand dinners, aud attended with
several other dignitaries, some of whom,
it appears, took the trouble to inquire ef
fectively about him beforehand, and arc
consequently, tQa certain extent, among
the "sold" fraternity. Coolbaugh prom
ised Mr. Stebbins a gold-headed cane
that he said he was having made for him,
aud told Stebbins that he must get a new
coat to wear when he carried it. Mr.
Stebbins, accordingly, procured a new
coat, and occasionally, when Coolbaugh
would come down in the moruing, he
would say, "Have you got your new coat?
the cane is almost finished." It is almost
needless to say that Stebbins never saw
that cane. Coolbaugh found that Sloan
kuew some men at Bull's Head, and got
him to introduce him to them. On the
strength of that and his own representa
tions. Coolbaugh selected a fine team of
carriage marcs, at two thousand dollars.
and a nice saddle horse at eight hundred
dollars, engaging to buy them. He said
he would send Sloan for them next morn
ing, for he wanted them delivered at
White House, New Jersey, where he pre
tended to own a large tract of land. Next
day Coolbaugh wanted Sloan to go up and
get the horses, and pay ior them with
some papers he 'showed, but Sloan not li

FINE APPEARANCE of THE TROOPS.
TU.E REVIEW ON TUESDAY.
A more beautiful day has hardly been
witnessed this season. The sun shone out
brightly, and the air was clear and cool.
Business was entirely suspended, and the
whole population of the city was in the
streets together with at least fifty or sixty
thousand strangers, to see the great re
view. Pennsylvania Avenue was lined with
people from pavement to house top ; flags
were displayed all along the route, and
tlm spriio was one of the most brilliant
and imposing ever witnessed in "Wash
ington. The Avenue was swept from
curb to curb, and guards posted at each
alley and street, so as to prevent any one
from intruding outstde the curostonc on
the Avenue. In front of the President's
house, long before 9 o'clock, the scene
was magnificent indeed. ULhc.long ter7
mfifid rows of seats on each side, of the
street were occupied by thousand of ladies
while four stands were for distinguished
people. At stand No. i, the President
and Cabinet, Lieut. General, Grant, Gen
Sherman, Gen. Meade, Gen. Logan and
others, were seated, lheir first appear
ance was greeted by long and continued
shouts of thousands, interspersed with
w.iviim of flairs, handkerchiefs, &c At
nine o'clock precisely the grandest re
vifuv ever witnessed on this continent
The column commenced moving at 9
o'clock, Gen. Meade being the first of
ficer, followed by his. stall, lie was en
thusiastically cheered all along the route.
the ladies waving their handkerchiels
At the Canitol the children of the public
schools were assembled, who distributed,
bouc'iicts aud loose flowers to the gallant
men as they passed. The soiled and tat
tered flags were proudly borne amid the
cheers of the lookers on.
The cavalrv was the first iu order to
pass, under- General Merritt. General
Ouster bore a beautiful wreath in his arm,
presented to him at the Capiol. In the
vicinitv of the stands at the President's
house a-d-ense crowd was congregated
through which ic wis impossible to pass
The arsenal was cleared of everything,
the march was uninterrupted.
All along the Avenue the advance o
cavalrv was erected with cheers. The
horses were gaily caparisoned and march
ed with the regularity of veterans. First
came the 3d Cavalry Division, commanded
by General Custer, who rode a little in
advance of his column, literally over
whelmed with wreaths of flowers presented
by the ladies on the route. Bauds were
playing for every brigade. Sheridan's
cavalry were two hours passing General
Grant's stand. Gen. Sherman and staff
rode up Pennsylvania Avenue beside
Custer's division to the stand at the White
House. Whenever he was recognized
he was received with intense enthusiasm.
Next followed the secoud and first cav
alry divisions, commanded respectively by
Brevet Major General Davies aud Briga
dier General Deviu. The horse artillery
brigade, the Provoat Marshal General's
brigade, aud the Engineer brigade. The
troops composing these bodies were for
