The Augusta Daily Press Bays: "A lad of some four,
teen years of sge, the son of Mrs. GALLAGHER, was klUed
by a negro boy, on Friday afternoon last. Young GAL?
LAGHER was getting a puppy from under his house to
give to the negro boy, who had a loaded pistol in his
hand at the time, threatening to shoot another negro,
probably in play, when the pistol went off, the ball
striking the deceased in the head, killing him almost in.
A man named DAVIS was sent, some time since, from
Zenia, Ohio, to Cincinnati, by a national bank of the

bxnk directors set a detective on him, who f jUowed him
to Independence, Mo., and succeeded in getting nearly
all the BOM y from him.
The alleged principal in the groat bond robbery o'
$1,600,000 from thc Office of Mr. R. G. Loan has been
apprehended, and there is a strong probability of tho
stolen property being recovered. Information reached
jpnltf d S'ate? Marshal Mumu Y a few days since that the
persons Implicated in the affair were about to leave for
Boston. They were watched and followed, and tho sup?
posed principal in thia mammoth theft vas captured on
bis arrival at Newburyport, Mass. The rewards offered
for the arrest of the thieves and recovery of the properly
amount to nearly a quarter of a million of dollars.

TUESDAY MORNING. APRIL 3, 18C6.
GEN. LEE "PUT TO TUE QUESTION."
The Inquisition at Washington, known as the
Committee on Reconstruction, having plenary pow
er "to send for persons and papers," have Bradly
patronized General LEE. They sent for tho groat
ex-rebel-drawing him from hie peaceful seclusion
in ?he mountaius of Virginia-to put him through
a course of Reconstruction Cateohism. We have
never had the pleasure of seeing any of the dis
tiDguished gentlemen, over which Senator How
AKD presides, but we have very frequently seen
the illustrious catechumen, and can well conceive
the calm dignity that Bat upon his noble brow,
and the expression of surprise, pictured in those
deep, truthful eyes, at the tenor of some of the
questions put to him. We can conceive, moreover,
that Senator HOWARD and big fourteen learned
assessors, not unfrequently must have felt rather
sheepish in the course of thia catechizing ; and
sometimes again, the whole farce must have been
so apparent, even to themselves, that we are sure
they must have experienced no little difficulty to
maintain sufficient gravity to play their role.
They of course knew perfectly well, beforehand,
what would be the tenor of General LEE'S replies;
and these replies not being to their liking, they
seemed to take pleasure in puttiDg perplexing
home questions to him. They were not restrained
by motives of delicacy. Why should they ? Had
they not power "tosend for persons and papers V"
The Reporters do not tell us how the veteran sol?
dier behaved under this inquisitorial infliction ;
we feel assured, however, he did not tremble in
tho august presence, but acquitted himself, as he
has often done on moro trying occasions.
Many of tho questions are commonplace, trivial
and puerile. He was asked about the "loyaUy"
of the "secessionists;" whether these late rebels
would vote for a repudiation of the United States
debt; whether they would not also like to pay thc
"so-called" Confederate debt; how Virginians feel
towards freedmen; whether negroes havo any
special capacity for mathematics and the exact
sciences [rather a hard question for our old Gen?
eral, and he very modestly told his interrogators
that he did not know]. They asked him about
the domestic, social and economic habits of the
frcedmau, and tho reasons therefor. What would
the "secessionists1' do in case of a war between
tho United States and some foreign power or
powers? Are the poor whites of Virginia more
fond of work-now than they were formerly? Can
Northern capitaliste and laborers come to Virgin?
ia and go to work there?
We do not deem it necessary to lay tho answers
to these questions before our readers. General
LEE is a fair representative of the South; every
Southern man, therefore, can readily answer these
questions for himself, and on comparison he will
find that his ideas on loyalty and reconstruction
perfectly coincide with those of General LEE. But
before we close our brief notice of this lengthy
document, we will give one or two specimens of
Mr. HOWARD'S crucial questions :
"Is there not a general dislike of Northern men
among Secessionists ?" A. I suppose they would
prefer not to associate with them; I do not know
that they would select them as associates.
"Do they avoid and ostracize them socially?"
A. They might avoid them; they would not select
them as associates unless there was some reason;
I do not know that they would associate with
them until they became acquainted; I think it
probable they would not admit them into their
"Suppose a jury was impanneled in your own
neighborhood, taken by lot, would it be possible
to convict, for instance, Jefferson Davis, for hav?
ing levied war upon the United States, ?nd thus
having committed the crime of treason ?" A. I
think it is very probable that they would not con?
sider he had committed treason.
"Suppose tho jury should be clearly and plainly
instructed by the Court that such an act of war
upon the part of Mr. Davis, or any other leading
man, constituted in itself the crime of treasou
under the Constitution of the United States,
would tho jury be likely to heed that instruction,
and, if the facti wero plainly in proof before
them, convict the offender ?" A. I do not know,
sir, what they would do on that question.
As this Committee has examined a great many
very prejudiced witnosses on the state of loyalty
in tho South, and the fitness and capacity of tho
late rebels for a return into the bosom of the
Union, we are glad that the "other sido" has had
a bearing also, and that General LUE was enabled
to record his testimony on the leading topics in
controversy. We sincerely hope, though we
scarcely expect, that thc quiet dignity, and calm,
gentleman-liko candor of General LEE'S replies
may exercise a salutary influence oh his interroga?
tors, and on the Northern people at large.
Aud, in conclusion, wo would again assure them
that General LEE'S oyir?ons are those of every
The paternity of Senator STEWARTS proposition,
tint universal amnesty shall bc offert d thc .South
in exchange for universal suffrage, really be longs
to Mr. GREELEY, who brought forward precise'?
the samo thing iu the Tribune a year ago. It is
not much to be wonderod at that Mr. SIMSKP of?
fered a French embrace to the Senator from Ne?
vada, on hearing a plan of this character from his
lips. It is a peor thing for anybody to father,
aud finds its natural place among the multitude

A NOBLE PURPOSE
? AND ?
A GLOKIOUS RESULT.
THERE ARE AS MANY ROADS TO FAME AND
Fortune as there were gateways to the ancient Thebes.
Ihe ambitious .warrior ls for carrying his way with
! the sabre; your aspiring politician for scheming his way
j bv intrigue and consummate art. But there ls one
grand oroad path to the goal, along wblch nothing base
can tr:.ve). It is the path set apart for the march of
talent, energy and noble purpose; sud, though full cf
obstacles, it contains tone that a brave man cannot,
This fact has been exemplified in innumerable* in?
stances, but in few moro forcibly than in the rise and:
progress of STEELE'S "HAT HALL," on King-street',
For over seventeen years its course has been onward"
and upward, scattering HATS at every step, until it now
stands on the topmost rounds of the ladder of Fame, as
the crowning finish to man._1_March 3
