The New Laws.
The foilowing extracts from the new code

The preliminary bill, induced by the eman

have of Caucasian blood seven eights or
more, shall be deemed a white person.
Another section provides, as follows

Jefferson Davis was elevamted to his high
i sl.tle 1 , ouir suiffragce:t an 1in reconse to
our wishes. 17e imposed upo) Nim a respon
sibility which lie did ,iot seek. Originally
opposud to the sectional policy, to which pub
opinion. ,with irresistible power, finally
drove him, he became ,the exponent of. our
principles and the leader of our cause. le
simply responded to the-united voice of his
section. If he, then, is giflty, so are we; we
wore the piincipals; he vwas our agent. Let
not the retribution of a mighty nation be visi
ted upon his hea4, %he we who urged him
to his destiny arc suffered to escape. The
liberal elemeicy of the Government has been
extended over*u; we breathe the air and ex
perience the blessings.of freedom ; we there
fore ask that the Leader who, in response to
the democratic instincts of his natTire, the
princip&es c,f his party, -nrl the s licitations
of his section, becamc thc head and -front of
o'ur offending, shall not now be bruisedl for
our iniquities or puni.-hed for our transgres
sions,
Mr.,Davis was not the leadcr of a feeble and
temporary insurrection ;- he was the Repre
sentative of great ideas, and the exponent of
principles which stirred and consolidated a
numerous and intelligent people. This people
iwas not his dupe. They pursued the course
which they adopted of their own frece will and
he did not draw them on, but followed after
them. It is for these reasons wc invoke the
executive clemeney in his behalf. lis frame
is feblie ; his health is delicate
' "A12 broke- by the sjorms of State."
he languishes out in captivity a vicarious pun
ishinent for the acts of his people. Thousa'nds
of hearts are touched with his distress; thou
sands of prayers ascend to Heaven for his re
lie. We invoke in his b*hal the gen:ous
exercise of the prerogative to pardon which
the form and pijnciples of the C -nstitution of
fer as a beneficent instrument to a merciful
executive. We ask the continuance of that
career of elpmency vhich your Excellecy has
begun, and which alone, we earnestly believe,
can secure the true unity and the lasting
greatness of the nation. 1ispensi.ng that mer
cy, which is inculcated by the example of our
great Master on high, your name will be trans
mitted to your coufrimen as one of the bene
factors of mankind. Tie constitutiorVf our
country, renewed and fortifled ). your mea
sures,will once more extend its protection
over a contented and happy people, founded,
as it will he upon consent and afl'ection and
"resting, like the great arch of the learens
cqually upon all."
Now this goes to the heart. Ncaking
protestations we were d'ped, that we may
get off scot free, while a gallant gentleman,
our free choice, pines in activity as a scape
goat. No speaking of one no more guilty
than ourselves in a to!4of half contemptuous
pity as though because we wc.e pardoned and
he not, we were therefore so much his supe
riors. Fratil, .traightforward, truthful, gal
lant, well expressed, this memorial isv honor
able to the hand that indited it and the Stote
that will send it fdrth.
To-day the morning session was consumed
in a discussion as td ~Whether the proposition
suggested by Brig. Geqn. Tilson-that civil
oficers should be empowered to act as agents
for the FrCetnan's Bureau, etc.-should pass
into a resolution, but the deb&te, though
lengthy, was quite languid as the reports
~howv.
P. S.-An ordinance has just ben passed
authorizing prdi.naries, etc., to act as agents
of the Freedmnen's Buhreau. The two anti
rep udiation telegramis from Washington were
then read in a profound silence. 'The Con
vention was so determined not to repudiate
that it was very hard to have to do som evene
though under duress and as the lesser of two
evils.
The True Story in Rlegard to Mr.' Davis'
fat Capture.
The fcsin regaird to this historic incident
arc related by Mr. Reagan. A t the camp,
where the capture took .place, Mr. Davis and
his family occupied a-tent on one side ofa
row of wagons, wbile Reagan'and Wood and
two or three others encamped on the other
si.e
Just- about daybreak, Mr.-Reagan says he
was awakened by loud reports of musketry
which seemed to proceed from behind their
poition, at no great distance fr-om their en
campment. The firing was growing louder
and Iouder, when suddenly the federail caval
ry dashed in upon them from the opposite di
rection where tbe noise of the firing seemed
to proceed. Some of the troopers daished ini
on the side of the #egens where Mr. Davis
and his family were, while others galloped to
the side occr'pied by Reagan and his compan
ios The latter told a federal captain wh
appeared on the scene that although he ha-d,
as far as he was personally concerned, no par
ticular interest to serve in putting an end to
the fwing going on behind them, .nevertheless~
he would.,do well to stop it, for as they had
no troops with them the federals must, be
fgting among themselves. The officer gave
no credence to this at first, but in the end he
mst havec followed Reagan's suggestion; as
soon after the firing ceased. In the -mean
time .Reagan's companions fled and made good
their escape, while, as lhe had himnself resolved
everto leave his country, he elected to re
main and share the fate of Mir. Dasis, were it
even death.:imditl nhern h
Mr. Davis, imeitl nhaigtefir
ing, sprang from the plauce where lie had been
passing the night, and advanced towar d. the
door of the tent. As he did so, thinkging that
te firing proceeded from the mar aiuders of
the Alabamua brigade before mentioned, who
probably had comxe in contact with his own
small escort,mntent on plunder and carnage, lie
exclaimed alona: "Those mren have attachal?
us at last ; surely I have anthority- enougn
left to prevent my c,wn mgen fron> killing one
aother." Saying this he opened the door of.
the tent, and wvas just stepping out, when his
wife, eitber beside herself with terror, and
not knowing clearly what were the nature of
her acts, or thinking that thegarmecnt. might
render him unrecognizable to is pursuers,
threw a morning gown over his sh, ilers.
At that moment he was captured.. It wiil be
seen by this unvarnished narrative of actual
occurrences that the story of Davis being
caught in his wife's petticoats was a sheer
fabrication, and that all the stories of his run
ning into the woods from the pursuing sldier:s
are equally as false, since it appears by the
statement of one who was present at the time
that the principal cause of Mr. D)avis going
out of the tent wPs, first, to cbtain possession
of his revolvers, which:for the first nmgh t smnee
his flight he hadl left in the bolste:r on tne s:1om
die of his horse, that lie might providt agains5t
the danger he would incur in carrying out his
intention of ende~avo,ring to put an end to what
he toaht was a dead!y strife betwccn his
OW en. Mr. Reingan rurther says t"hat, had
the I-mes not ben with them, they would
never have been taken without tiring their
last shot, na they had so resolved on coininene
ing their fliglit. The thought that any resist
ance on th'ir part %,'euld entail an indiscrimi
nate slaughter'of the ladies al children alone
deterred thin from firing on their pursuers.
This statement, wo- should think,. should set
tke all disppte conCe:Iing the capture of Tef
fersn Davis.
The repors tnt were so industriously cir
culated throughotit the country after the tall
of the rebel capital, to the effect that Mr. Da
vis was vunning away to parts uinknown with
an immense amou.t of treasure stolen from
the Richmond banks, Mr. Rea ;an, annihilates
-bvrelatinz an incident which occurred durig
Mr. Davis'fthght. They were talking abota
what money tl.ey had, and for some reason it
was proposed to investigate -the richness of
their valises. Mr. Davis counted his money,
and it was found that he had a little-ovei $175
in Confederate itotes.! And this was the
mighty treasre the radicals have. how1ed
themselves hoarse about! The- only consider
able amount of money in ttie posse'ssion of-any
of Mr. Davis' party was hejd by Mr. Reagan
himself, and that was not by any means to be
counted by thousands!
John Happy,+e humoro-s"local" of the
Nashville Banne, recently weut to Washington
on the hunt of a pardon. John gives his expe
rience. He says! "Had a personal interview
with the Chief MAngistrate, and asked him for a
sniall Pardon, if he had aav more left. Chief
Magistrate wanted to know what position I held
in the rebel army. The answ'er was faiit, some
what besitating and a little shaky-I said : 'Quar
terniaster." Chief Magistrate chuckled anAl turned
his head to conceal a ardonic smile. "My an
cient and venerable friend," he said, "if you think
that Your depart mnient of the rebellion endangered
the Union cause, your innocence is a pardon .a
it-elf." I scornfully refu,;d to inteipfet the mean
ing of that cruet satire." -
m ?LAftLP1A, October'28.-San Francisco
dates from Honolula to the 3Ot4 of September
have been received. The lonolula Adrerti8er
publishes a list of ninety-five whalers, com
prising the Arctic fleet, (nearly all the Amer
ican.) Thirty-three.of these have been burned
or bonded by the Shenandoah, and jsixty-two
remained to be heard from.
The Federal war steamer Saranac sailed
from Honolula-on the 17th of September for
Marquesas Islan Is, owing to a rumor that a
lot of cdal had been landc at Eontyca for the
Shenandoah.
Alexander If. Rivers, of Charlattesville,
says that he was informed by Secretary Se
ward thnt he wished to make peace between
the North and the South ; that, as to the test
oath, if he had been in 'Congress lie should
not have voted for it ; but, said he, the oath
is a lawx, and any Congressxnal district in thei
South "had better send an idiot or c. ehld to
Oagress who can take it, than to send a wise
man who cannot."
The work room of James Watt, the inven
'tor of the stem engine, is-just as he left it.
in the attie of his house, where he was driven
by h scolding wife. The will of his son re
quired that the room should be left.just as it
was when his father went out of the room1
for thte last time. ' The door was recentl y
opened for the first time in thirty years.
We learn, from one of our Northern ex
changes, that a son of John-Brown has just
made a speech in which he urges the negroes
to arm themselves and insist upon ruling the
South by force. President Johnson ha's just
made a speech, in which he urges the negro
to go to work and leave their political future
to P'rovidence. Which advice will the color
