superb supper party given to us ;by Mrs.
T- , there were five 0onfederate
Generals- Marmadoke and Wheeler
among the number-and Colonels,. Ma

The following letter, addressed to the
Governor of Virginia, has been furnish.
ed us by his Excellency for publication.
It explains itself :
ATTORNEY GENFnAL'8 OFFIOE,
Washington, August 27, 1865.
Hon. N. . .irpoint, Governor of Vir
Sin : I am directed by the Attorney
General to acknowledge the receipt of
your letter uf Lite 25th instant, and to
say in reply that, as far as this office is
concerned, you have his full authority
for saying that the only influence posi
ble to be exerted in the matter of par
dons by any agent or attorney, whoever
he may be, is to delay .the petition. All
cases coniing under the thirteenth excep.
tion, and- all petty civil officers having
your recommendation, need nothing fur.
ther They are approved by the At.
torney-General as a matter of course.
The iresident declares that any intima.
tion that money can assist a petitiondr,
is a gross insult to his whole office,
from himself to his humblest messen.
I am, sir, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
MEETING OP THE ORANI LODGE OF
ODD FE.LowS-TUE SOUTUERN STATES
TO DE REPRESENTED.-It will be recol
le'ted that, sho'rtly after the close of tle
late rebellion, thei Grand Sire of the
Grand Lodge of the United Sttes, Isaac
M. Veitch, Esq.. issued a prooltmation,
in which lie invited the Grand Lodges
of all the States lately in rebellion to
send delegates to the Grand Lodge ol
the United States, which assembles in
this city on the 18th of September. It
is a pleasant duty to record the fact that
the Grand- Secretary has received favo.
rable responses from nearly every Grand
Lodge in the United States, and it i
now cowidently believed that at -the
coining meeting the Order will onc(
again present' an unbr9ken front, and
that one of the qld'time -gatherings will
take plnce. This in as it should be. Al,
ready the. members of fhe Order in this
city are making preparations to- give
their brethren who have been so long
necessarily absent a warm -reception,
and with this view the citizens generally
should contribute liberally.
