SATUltDAY MOUNING, JUNK 30. WOO._
Plating Mr. DavU In Irons.
Ou tho- morning of ino 23d of May, a yet St
orer trial was i atoro for tho proud spint-a
. rial Bovorer, prooably, than has over in modern
mes boon inflicted upon any Otto who had enjoyed
uch eminence. This morning Jefferson Davie
It was wliilo all tho swarming camps of tho
armies ot the Potomac, the Tounosseo and Geor
x ?a,-over two hundred thousand bronzod and
aurolod veterans- were prepariug for tho Grand
Boviow ol' the next morning, in which, passing in
endless succession before the mansion of the
President, tim conquoriiig military powor of tho
nation waa to lay down ita arm* at tho feet of tho
oi vii authority, that the following sceuo wasonact
o d at Fort Monroe :
Captain Jerome E. Titlow, of the 3d PonuBylva
aia Artillery, ontcred tho prisoner's coll, followod
the bluckBinitli of tho tort and his assistant,
ho latter carrying iu II?B hands BOIUO heavy and
arshly-rattling shackles. A? tboy enterca, Mr.
?JJ avis was reclining on lila bed, feverish and
?T oary after aBlooplcBS night, tho food placed near
him tho preceding day still* lying untouched on
8 tin plate near his bodsido.
?'Well?" said Mr. Davis as they entered, slightly
aiaing his hoad.
"I have an unpleasant duty to perform, Sir,"
said Captain Titlow; and as ho spoko, the aonior
blacksmith took tho shackles from his assistant.
Davis leaped instantly from his recumbent atti
i udo, a flush passing over his faco for a moment,
and then his countonanco growing as livid and
rigid as death.
Ho gasped for broath, clutching his throat with
. . ho thin lingers of his right hand, and thon ro
d ovoriug hlmsolf slowly, while his wasted figuro
oworod up to ita full height-now appearing to
will uith indignation ana then to shrink with
error, as ho glauccd from the captain's face to
he shackles-ho said slowly and with a laboring
"My God ! You cannot have boon sent to iron
me ?" . ^
"Such aro my orders, Sir," roplied tho officer,
beckoning the blacksmith to approach, who step
ped forward, unlocking the padlock and preparing
t ho fetters to do their office. Theso fetters were
of heavy iron, probably fivo-oighths of an inch in
hickcoBH, and connected together by a chain of
iko wei-rht. I believe they are now in the posses
sion of Major-General Miles, and will form an in
? toroa ting relio.
"This is too monstrous," groaned tho prisoner,
glaring hurriedly round tho room, as if for some
weapon,<cr means of solf-destruction. "I demand,
Captain, that you lot mo see the commanding
o moer. Can he pretend that such shacklos aro
r o?!.uired to secure the safoeustody of a weak old
man, so guarded and in sucn a fort aa this ?"
"It would serve no purpose," replied Captain
Titlow; "hie orders aro from Washington, as mine
ara from him."
"But he can telograpb," intorposed Mr. Davis,
agorly; "there must bo some mistake. No such
.outrage as you threaten me with, is on rocord in
J ho history of nations. Beg him to telegraph,
nd delay until he answers."
"My orders aro peremptory," said tho officer,
'and admit of no delay. For your own Bake, let
mo advise you to submit with patience. As a
. . oldior, Mr. Davis, you know I must execute or
"These are not ordora for a, soldier," shouted
he prisoner, losing all control of himself. "They
aro orders for a jailor-for a hangman, winch no
-a oldier wearing a sword should accept 1 I tell
on the world will ring with this disgrace Tho
war ia over; the South is conquered; I have no
onger any country but America, and it ia for tho
horn t of America, as for my own honor and life,
G hat I plead against this degradation. Kill me !
? killnio !" ho cried, passionately, throwing his arma
wide open and exposing his breast, "rather than
. i nilict on me, and on my people through me, this
nsult worse than death."
"Do your duty, blacksmith," said the officer,
walking toward the embraBuro as if not oaring to
witness the performance. "It only gives increased
pain on all sides to protract this interview."
At these words tho blacksmith advanced with
" t ho Bhackles, and eeoiog that tho prisoner bad ono
i f oot upon the chair near his bedside, his right
hand resting on tho baok of it, the brawny me
chanic made an attempt to slip one of the shackles
over the ankle so raised; but, as if with the vehe
mence and strength which frenzy can impart,
even to the weakest invalid, Mr. Davis suddenly
seized his assailant and burled him half way
across tho room.
On this Captain Titlow turned, and seeing that
Davis had backed against the wall for furthor re
. distance, began to remonstrate, pointing out in
. brief, clear language, that this courso was mad
ia ?gas, and that orders must be enforced at any
oat. "Why compel me," he added, "to add the
mrther indignity of personal violence to the ne
easity of your being ironed?"
"I am a prisoner of war," fiercely retorted
Davis; "I havo lieon a soldier in the armies of
Amonen, and know how to die. Only kill me, and
my last breath shall bo a blessing on your hoad.
But while I havo life and strength to resist, for
.myself and for my people, this thing shall not be
Hereupon Captain Titlow callod in a sorgeant
and file of soldiers from the next room, and the
^sergeant advanced to seize tho prisoner. Imnie
. diatoly Mr. Davis flew on him, seized bia musket,
and attempted to wrench it from his grasp.
Of course such a scene could have but one issue.
Thero was a short, passionate scuffle. In a mo
ment Davis was flung upon his bed, and before
his four powerful assailants removed their.hands
from him, the blacksmith and his assistant had
done their work-ono securing the rivet on the
right ankle, while tho other turned the koy in the
padlock on the left.
This done, Mr. Davis lay for a moment as if in
stupor. Thon slowly railing himself and turning
round, he dropped his shackled feet to the floor.
The harsh clank of the striking chain seems first
to have recalled him to his situation, and drop
ping his face into his hands, ho burst into a pas
sionate flood of sobbing, rocking to and fro, and
muttoring at brief intervals : "Oh, tho shame, the
It may hero bo stated, though out of its due
order-that wo may get rid in baste of an un
pleasant subject-that Mr. Davis some months
later, H hen froquent visits had made him more
free of converse, gave mo a curious explanation
of the last feature in this incident.
He bad been speaking of suicide, and denounced
i t as the worst form of cowardice and folly. "Life
. i s not like a commission that we can resign when
disgusted with the service. Taking it by your
own band is a confession of judgment to all that
your worst enemies can allege. It has ofton flash
ed across mo as a tempting remedy for neuralgic
torture; but thauk Cod I I never sought my own
? doath but once, and then when completely fren
zied, and not master of my actions. When they
carno to iron mo that day. asa last resource of
desperation, I seized a soldier's musket and at
tempted to wronch it from his hands, hoping that
n the scuffle and surprise, some one of his com
rades would shoot or bayonet me."

ONE FUEEDMAN Erxxs AMOTHEB_On Sunday
afternoon, about 3 o'clock, a negro man, Androw
Jackson by name, a carpenter, wbo formerly be
longed to Mr. Henley, shot and instantly killed
another negro, Sandy Black, who forrnorly be
1 onged to Mr. Hamp Park, The shooting was
dono with a largo size weapon, which had been
mado from an Eufiold rifle barrel, cut off some
eight inches from tbe butt, retaining the look,
hammer, .Vc, fitted roughly on a stock. The bali
(minnie) o?,te-red Sandy's breast just below tho
collar bono and carno out of his back, and he died
instantly. Tho affair occurred in the street of
"ficllorvillo," a collection of houses a sl.ort dis
tance north of Camp Montgomery. A dispute
arose botwoon tho two concerning a small amount,
not exceeding two and a half dollars, which An
drew claimed Sandy owed him. Words onsued,
v which resulted in a fight, in which Sandy came
' out best. Andrew went back into his house, iu
front ot whioh tho fight occurred, to get his pis
tol, which ho had laid aside . before engaging in
the pugilistic encounter, and started off to report
Sandy to tho Buroau. The lattor followed; words
. ensued, and tbon tho shooting. They wore apart
at the time somo twenty foot, and each was ad
'vanoing towards the othor. Froedmen curried
Androw before the Bureau agenta, by whom he

Adjournment of Congress.
From an editorial article ia the Richmond Kr
aminer of Tuosday we copy the following extract :
That effoto instrument, tho Constitution of tho
United States, whioh very few outside of the
South, oxcept the President, ever thiuk of re
specting-that compact which the fathers of the
Radical party ouco" characterized as "a lcaguo
with death and a covenant with hell," contains a
provision to which wo wonld for a moment invito
In tho third eection of the second article it ia
provided that, in case of disagreement hotweon
the two Houses of Congress as to tho time of ad
journment, the Proaidont may adjourn thom to
such time as he shall think propor. Hero is, in
disputably, a powor of adjonrnment vested in the
President, whore Congress disagrees. And more
than this is implied in that section. Tho framora
of tho Constitution clearly were of opinion that
Congress should bo forced to adjourn when,
through perversity or a worse motive, they would
not agree to do so. Therefore, it is made the im
perative duty of the President to adjourn that
body when they disagree as to the timo when the
country shall bo relieved of them.
But now is it when Congress will not adjourn at
all ; will not oven consider the time of adjonrn
ment ; bnt, for party purposes, determines to sot
indefinitely ? Is there no remedy or relief in auch
a case ? Wo maintain there is ; that tho refusal
to adjourn, the absence of any agreement or do
tormm.ition on the part of the legislativo body to
dissolve, itself, when the welfare of tho conntry re
quires it, presents a caso of " disagreement " that
calla for too interposition of Executive authority.
Especially does this view and tho argument based
upon it become cogent when tho power in Con
gress is found to bo wielded by a treasonable or
rebellions faction, seeking to prolong its power
and save its neck from tho h . Iter by usurpation.
"TAL- OF A TIUVELLEB."-The travelling cor
respondent of the New York Herald relates the
following as having recently bappenod betwoon
Mobile and Meridian :
buring a temporary stoppago of tho train, we
had quito a lively time- of it for a few minutes.
Most of the passengers were placidly gathering
blackberries by the roadside, when the orack of a
pistol was hoard, and two big men carno running
round the cars, revolvers in hand, firing upon ono
little man who was unarmed. They were the en
gineer and fireman of the train, amusing them
selves by endeavoring to shoot down a Yankee
newsboy who had formerly been in the Federal
army. It was one of the moat cowardly outrages
I have over seen. The engineer took doliborato
aim and shot several times at tho defenceless lad,
but without effect; the fire-arms (pistols) only
snapped. All the passengers, southern as well as
northern, were loud in their condemnation of this
dastardly pioco of cowardice, and an ax-colonel of
the rebel army (Colonel Meek) was foremost in
interfering in behalf of the lad.

I cheerfully concur in the opinion above expressed of
the value of Professor BmnuaMa' Glsssos, and their
adaptability to all defocts of vision, and also to his skill
and Judgment lu adapting the glass to each special im

I do most willingly bear my testimony In favor of tho
superiority of the Australian Crystal- singlo and dou
ble vision spectacles ovt-r aU other kinds. They are
constructed npon the best established and understood
principles of optics, and their adaptation to the human
eye In Its different conditions of vision is so perfect, as
to render sight easy without effort. In my opinion,
none others should be used eluco tho eyes once used to
those do not seem to grow old, and by having a focus
at any point of the surface, ihey appear to rest o'er the
eyes to their youthful energy.

We have examined the Lenses of Prof, ' BsnwHABDT,
and consider them superior to any we have Been. They
are admirably adapted not only to improve the Imper
fections of impaired sight, but to relieve the weariness of
vision which constant study produces. Many of the
Glasses are of nsw and ing?nions cou tri vat co. We cor
dially recommend the Professor to all those who require
BolentlQo optical assistance.
