TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 3, 1868.
A Philanthropist In Limbo.
Among tho limited number of white persons w ho at
tou Je J Fred. Douglass and his colored companions, on
tho occisi?n of their visit to the President, was one
CALVIN PEPPER, who, we believe, claimed t o hail from
South Carolina. We find in the Philadelphia Inquirer, v
Radical paper, of th? 29th ult, tho foUowli g notice of
3?r. PEPPER, who, lt seems, has got himself into trou?
ble, having fail? d to obtain thc assont of the freedmen
to tho exchange of their cash for his fino word-i and
moral Ideas, which be regarded as an tmplr equivalent
for all the savings which they gave bim an opportunity
.to pocket. There aro a good many PEPPERS here, and
we would suggest to our colored people to have nothing
todo with all those noble apos'Ies in the "cause." Most
of them are as great hnmbugs as CALVI? P.
Tho arrest of Calvin Pf pp?r. of Norfolk, who bas fig?
ured of late M a disintore*ted liumanl'nmn iu a colo
nizatlon scheme for ororation among the freedmen on
the Peninsula, boa caused much exi-itement among tho
freedmen, who had tu ascribed Ligely toward the pro?
ject Mr. Pepper proc?eied to Ri. hm< nd in charge of
Lieutenant Fessecden, of the r-th United States artillery
and bad an Interview with 1 > enera! T< rry. The investi
fation of the charges wore conduct d under Ornerai
erry's personal supervision; and rvery opportunity
-eras given Mr Pepper to mike the necessary defence.
For more than an honr the General listened to Pep?
per's elaborate defence, and wben be had concluded,
took np hts prospectus, published in the columns of a
small paper Issued at Norfolk, and dissected lt with a
minuteness of Inquiry which soon lcd to bia entire dis
comfiture, and exposed the utter worthlesreso and
xnaud.ing character of the scheme. Major-General
.'Howard had telegraphed te Washington his entire dis?
approval of tho affair, and from the evidence adduced it
'became apparent that he was acting en iirely without tho
co-operation of the freedmen's Society ot the North as
stated in his pros* ?tus.
The result waa jat General Terry ordered Kr. Pep
.per's compliance with the contents of Major General
Miles' letter, served upon him a few days previous to
'his arrest, vis: To refund and tura over the money
?collected by him and hts coadjutors from the freedmen
?of this distriot to a commissioned officer appointed to
receive the same. Mr. Pepper has been permitted to
return to Norfolk, but is prohibited from visiting the
Peninsula or engaging in any colonization scheme.
(JowNEencuT ELECTION.-The election for Governor
Of Connecticut took place yesterday. A letter from New
Haven to the New York Herald says :
"The canvass of the State bas been completed by the
''Local Committees of each p*rty. and the results, aa pri?
vately announced lu tho Republican State Committee,
foot up as follows :
Hawloy, Rep. 42.28(1

WE LEARN from the Savannah Herald that about six
. o'clock on Sunday evening a small yacht called the Chloe
Brown, tho property of Mr. JOHN PitocTon, while on
her trip from Eoanfort, 8. C., to that port, was capsized
below Kort Jackson.
There wore about thirteen persons nn board, all of
whom were picked np by an outward bound steamer,
with the exception of a colored man by the i ame of
Allen, recently a momberoi the Sith U.S. C. L, but
recently mustced out, and on bl* way home.
GREAT EMIGRATION rsow fBELAHn.-According to tho
Cork Examiner, upwards <>f four thousand p-rson* leit
Ireland during the first week of the present month,
going to the United SUtes by way of Queenstown, It is
estimated that two-thirds o' the number were of tho
middle ai.d tarring class The farniers were complidn
ing last year ot the wan' of laborers to gather in the har?
vest; but If the emiisxattou continues at the presout ruto
(says the Examiner), ono. t'uonsnnd flvo hundred a week,
they will certainly have more canso to complain this
year, us thoan leaving now aro mostly of that class.
About six t unbred p^ssensers sra now waiting in
Queenstown to get away by the steamers.
FLOium.- The OainsviJe Era thinks that Florida
will soou have a superabundant population, as emi?
grants are pouring in fi oui ol parts of the world. It
bids them welcome, and assures them of a kind recep?
tion, particularly if th-?y bring money.
FIRE IN MEMPHIS.-From the, Memphis Bulletin of
37th ult. we learn of a most destructive fire in that city
on the 56th. The amount of property destroyed was
.very large, estimated at near $50,000.
The Views of Slr. Lincoln on the Scheme
The following Important letter on the views of Mr.
I cs co LS on the Radicals and the question of restoration,
han been addressed to President JOHNSON, by ex-United
States Marshal LA MON, Mr. LINCOLN'S intimate friend
and former law partner :
Mr. PnESXDKKT : Among ihe nnmerons allegations
m ide against you by the ultra abolitionists, I hear none
repeated so often aa this-that you have deserted the
principles upon which you were elected, and turned
aside from the path in which your lamented predecessor
would have walked if he had lived. It seems to be be?
lieved by some that Mr. Lincoln could have been need
by the Radicals for all their purposes, including the de
struction of the Government, the overthrow of the (Jon
siltation, and the indefinite postponement of union
and harmony among the States. I need not say to you
or to any well-informed man, that the masses of that
powerful party which supported Mr. Lincoln and you in
the canvass of 1864, were - sincerely attached to the
Union and devoted believers in the Con - ti tu ti on. They
-everywhere asserted that the object of the war was to
re-eetibUsh the Union with the least possible delay, and
one of the resolutions of the Baltimore Convention
pledged you both to restore tho paramount authority of
the Constitution In all tho States.
It is trae that the party included some malignants who
hated the Union and tried to destroy lt before the war
began, and their pretended love of the Union during the
war was more than suspected to be insincere and
hypocritical; bnt they kept prudently Hilen t. afr.
Thaddeus Stevens was, to the best of my knowledge,
the only leading man in the party shameless and im?
pudent enough to avow hts hostility to the Union. He
was not tho exponent of our views, and ho representod
not even a fractional part of the honest millions who
cast th?lr votes, spent their money, and shed their
blood to bring back the government of their lathers.
All this yon know. I writ? now to tell you what I know
concerning the personal sentiments of Mr. Lincoln
himself, and I claim now to be the same kind of a Re?
publican that I waa when I voted for bim at bis first and
second election. I was his partner in the p ra; ti ce of the
law for a number of years. I came here with him as
his special friend, and was Marshal of this distriot
dining the whole of his administration. Down to tho
day of his death, I was in tho mo-t confidential and in?
timate relations with him. I knew him aa well as one
man can be known to another. I had many and free
conversations with hun on this very subject of recon?
struction. I waa made entirely certain by bis own re?
peated declarations to me, that he would oxert all his
authority, power, and influence, to bring about an im?
mediate reconciliati. ii between the two sections of the
country. As far as depended upon him, he would
have had the Southern States represented in both Houses
of Congress within the shortest possible time. All the
energies of his nature were given to a vigorous pro?
secution of the war while the rebellion lasted, but he
"was equally determined upon a vigorous prosecution of
peace, as soon as armed Hostility should be ended. He
knew the base designs of the Radicals to keep up the
strife for their own advantage, and he was determined
to thwart them. As he himself told mo very often if
any corroboration of this statement is needed, it may be
found in the fact that the ultra abolitionists had actu?
ally begun the outcry against bim before bis death, and
the moderate men everywhere, North and South, sin
- oorely mourned his fall as a calamity which deprived
'thom of their best friend. If that inscrutable Pro vi -
-dence, whose ways are past finding out, had permitted
bis life to oontlane nu til this time, there can be no
doubt that the Northern disnnionists wonld now be as
loud in their denunciation of his policy as they are of
.-yours. Mr. Stevens' demand for the head of "that maa
at the other end of the aveuue" would not havo been one
whit less ferocious. Of course he could not and did
?not anticipate the preoise shape of the measures which
the Radi oats might adopt to prevent reconstruction.
Tho Freedmen's Bureau Bill, which recently met its
-death at your hands, wu not born in bis lietiree ; but I
pronounce it a fool slander up'-n his memory to assert
that he would have signed a bill so palpably in conflict
with the Constitution and so plainly lutended to pro?
mote the one bad purpose < f perpetual disunion.
I did love Mr. Lincoln with a sincere and faithful af
foction. and m J reverence for his memory is intensified
by the horrible circumstances under which his high
career was closed. Now that death has disarmed him
-ot the powor to defend himself, his true friends should
stand forth to vindicate his gool name II there be
any insult upon bis reputation which they should re?
sent more indignantly than another, lt ia the assertion
that ho would have been the tool and instrument lo tl e
hands of sooh men as those who now lead the heartless
.and unprincipled o-n'est against you.
I have the honor to be
Your obedient servant,
WARD H. EAMON.
TRI AX?BEFOREUJJL1TARV COMMISSION.
CTTAOKL, April 2, 1866.
The Commission met at 10.30 A. M., and continued
the trial of JAKES CBAWTOBD KJBTS, his son Roar ET
KITTS, and ELISHA BTBZV.
Captain E. A. Bray, 1st Alaine Battalion, a witness for
the defence, being duly sworn, deponed as follows:
I was lately in command at Walhalla; on the 8tli of
January I left that placo for Sain bi ity, in Pic ];ens Dis?
trict, with a sqnad of men; I arrested that night W. 8.
Williams and his son Herbert; I then went to the house
of Ur. Thomas Williams, four miles distant, and leaving
n y horses hali a mlle from the house, went up to the
house with eleven m?n, whom I deployed around the
house; I called Hr. Thomas Willlama and asked him if
there was a mao there named Largeot; he said that ho
did not kno?; that there wis such a man there the
evening before, and that the last he saw of him he went
into that room (pointing to a oertain bedroom); one of
my men went to the bedroom and opened it, and some
one shot at him ; the soldier called and said, "He is in
here;" I passed through the house to place my men,
and as I stepped out some one made his escapo from the
room, ran thr ugh the house, jumped over the fence,
and ran into the woods near by, leaving his coat > nd
pants; I asked a colored man if Largenl had any horses
there, and he went and brought me a gray mare, brand?
ed U. 8., and a sorrel marc not branded at a'l; I went to
Williams' to arrest Largent, under orders to go into
that neighborhood and arrest all persons supposed to be
engaged in breaking np a colored man named Cato; I
understood Largent would not bo arrested ; if he pre?
ferred being taken deal, I was going to take him any
way; I took the same precautions with otheri arrested
that night that I did in regard to him.
Question by Accused.-What was the character of
The Judge Advocate objected to the question, as Lar
gent's character cannot be proven when ho ls neither on
trial nor a wit."**. Thu objection waa overruled.
Answer.-The majority think he is a bad man : I noti?
fied Largent thi?t I bad come to a-rest bim; as 1 pas ed
through the house I said to him, I supposed to be Lar?
gent, that if be fired again I would kUl him; that I
meant to take him dead or alive; I had not called on
bim to surrender before he fired the first shot; as my
men f jllowed him they fired some twenty shots at him ;
he fired more than once; I found in the pocket of his
coat the letter of W. 8 Williams, given In evidence in this
case on the 28th of March; tho sorrel mare died near
Pendleton last Friday, from blind staggers.
Being cross-examlaed by tho Judge Advocate, the
witness said: The attempt to arrest Largent had nothing
to do with the Brown's Kerry murder; I hf ard that E.
Dickerson examined the sorrel mare at Walhalla; sho
had lost two teeth on the lower left jaw.
1 ho evidence for the defence here closed.
The Judge Advocate proceed?] to offer evidence in
reply to the defence of the accused.
W. P. Brown, a wltnc.is for the prosecution, deposed :
Warroo Howell was in my omploy three mouths oet'ore
tbe 8th October, attending to the Ferry, and taking the
ferriage; I did not hear of his bad character until after
the murder ; I never heard any of the witnesses in this
case speak against ulm beforo tue murder, except Earle,
Q st i on by Judge Advocate. Did Barlo have any?
thing against Howell ?
Qtieition by Judge Advocate.-What was it ?
Tho accused, by their counsel, objected to tho ques?
tion, nnleaa the witness id required to speak of bil own
knowledge, hearsay not being admissible. Tl o Judge
Advocate withdrew the question.
Question by Judge Advocate.-Did the quarrel grow out
of personal transactions bet reen Howell and Earle '.'
Antver.-I only ktiow what I heard from tarlo.
Question by Judg: Advocate.-What did Earle say :
The accused objected to tho question, as lt introduced
hearsay evidence, and thut ls not the best which the
case admits ot The objection was overruled
Antver.- He seemed tobe angry with Howoll for send?
ing a company of soldiers by hts house to get corn and
bacon, and for forcing a bushel or two of corn from his
miller; I did not state In the S towera' case that I recog?
nised tho voice and featurer of Keys, because I was not
naked the question.
Lemuel (colored), a witness for the prosecution, do
posed : I did not drive the carriage to church on Sunday,
the 8?fc October, as I stated in my previous examination,
but it on the bun day before the 8th; on the 8th I
ind t. - went to Anderson together; I did not expect to
be asked these questions, and did not study on them.
Question by Judge Advocate.-When you saw the party
ride in on Monday morning, which ot them went to the
The accused, by their counsel, objected to the qios
tion, as eliciting matter not responsive to the defenoe.
The objection wss sustained.
Lemuel deposed further: I was asked on my previous
examination who genet ally made fire in Crawford Keys'
room, and I said Joe; I don't know of my own know,
ledge who made the ?ra on Uoodr.y moro lng, the 0th of
October; it ls on my mind that all the horses were in
tho ptablo on Sunday nicht, because I fed them; I don't
recollect any pastures open at that time, except some
whee* fields, which had been cut; one three-quarter, an
c thor two, and a third between one and two miles from
the houso; there was a com field in front of tho sUble,
and only . part of the corn had been pulled; if the
ho rs?, s had been put In the fl--la one-half mlle from the
house they could not hare got into the corn field, as
there was no gap : thors ia a fenco betwoen the nearest
wheat field and the corn field, but it had no gate.
Eveline (colored), a witness for the prosecution, de?
posed : I am S3 years of age, and am the wif* of Lem?
uel; I lived, on tho 8th Octwber, at Crawford Kays', and
was at home that night; I heard Hiss Eleanor Keys call
Eschol; Rachel was called three tmes 1 hat night A
i-olored woman, Phyllis Byre rn, had como to see me, and
wss talking about Edmond who bad got hurt that day ;
H lie was there when Bichel waa called, and when thc
carno ont of thc house spain, Lem called leach -1 first,
and then I; as she did not Wjke, Lem told Betty to
wake lier, which Betty did, and .H?chel went int ) tho
houso; Lem was absent from home on tho Bth October;
on the bund av previous he drove tho carriage to church ;
the corn WUH not ail gn-hered from tho field by thu sta?
ble on the 8th October; the nori-os could not run lu the
auld by tile stable without gettiig in tho co>u; some
time? master would turn th? borst? he rodo into fields
of corn, for a little while, to pick up grass; I never
kuew him to do so over night of a Huiiday. We were
at that timo gathering corn sod chucking on the farm.
Question by Judge Advocate.-What time did you get
upon Monday morning, aud what did you see't
Answer. -I got up a little before day on Monday morn?
ing, and went ont as I generally do.
At Oils point tbe accused, by their conn ?el, objected
lo the quo-.tion ; the consideraron of the objection was
postponed, and the Commission adjourned to meet on

Our last review closed ou a very dull and unsettled
market, which has not materially changed during the
week now under review, notwithstanding tba more fa
vorable arMces received from Liverpool. These advices
reported a better feeling in that market, and had tba ef?
fect of strengthening holdors in the Northern markets:
but with tko steady decline in Gold buyers were not dis?
posed to submit to an advance here, ond the cons?quence
has been that very little was done. Lutcr advices have
been received froin Liverpool reporting a further ad?

a very active Inquiry, bat holders, who sall re
strong confidence, in Cotton, sad look for higher pr

ably inspiring news from Liverpool, and bv tho p
peet of oontinuedadvance there, refused generally
part with lista except at an advance equivalent to
handsome advance which took place under a ooh pr<
Ising circumstances in Liverpool. The buyer, howe'
waa obliged to look to New York rather than to Ll'

arlng with gold di (acuities, and troubled dry goods i
