The Test Oath_Wo commend the following,
from the National Republican, to the notice of
our Southern contemporaries as fear thai the test
oath may be approved by the Philadelphia Con
But we have doubt? of tho propriety (of the
test oath) now that the nooessity whioh oallud for
it is passed. And our doubts are greatly strength
ened by evidences that it is being used in some
instancos to the prejudice of the publio service.
Seoond, third, and even fourth rate men in the
Southern States are frequently entrusted with
important publio duties, merely beoause first rate
mon in the same localities, although equally loyal
to the Government, cannot take this oath.
The National Republican is naturally supposed
to spoak authoritatively for the conservative por
tion of the Republican party-thoao vt-ry men who
first ooncoived the idea or the Convention and is
sued a call. The remarks of the Republican, too,
are important as iudioating (it is understood) the
President's views on the test oath. Those who
affect so much alarm about this matter may now
lay aside all appearauoe of fear. If they are not
reassured yet, we know not what to do.

LETTER FHOU SAHATOUA.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
Saratoga Springs, July 26.-I promised in my
last letter to givo your readers an account of tho
great hurdle raoe which was to come off on tho
following day, and which having taken place as
appointed, is now among tho things that were.
The rice carno off on Wednesday. On the night
previous tho excitement ran high in sporting and
hotting circles, and stakes were put up to the
amount of^ibout one hundred thousand dollars.
Zigzag was the favorite, hut Gen. Williams and
Knightlock wero not without their admirers and
When the morrow carno the Grand Stand was
more crowded than evor, and when it was whis
pered about from one to another,-tho knowing
ones b ing the whisperers, and the unknowing
ones what wo would call in legal parlanco the
whisperee?,-when it was whispered about, I say,
that thean races are almost always attended with
danger, often with accidents, and sometimes with
death ; when the hurdles were pointed out ob
structing tho track, and tho whisperers added
furthermore, that it is a very common occurronco
for a horse to misa his leap, and falling, break his
own and his rider's neck-tho ladies grew pale,
the gentlemen grew anxious, and all were excited
to the highcat pit oh. The race was a two mile
dash. Mr. Wood's Canadian horse, Gen. Williams,
carried 167 pounds ; Col. McDanikl's Knightlock
151 ; whilst Mr. Ready's Canadian horse Zigzag
carried 157 pounds. There were four hurdles
placed across the track, eaoh hurdle or hedge four
feet six inches high. The first hurdle was placod
fifty yards from the Judge's Stand, the second at
the one-quarter pole, tho third was placed at the
half mile pole, aud the last, on the home stretob,
making in all eight leaps for the noble steeds to
make in their two mile raoe.
At the call of the trumpet, the horses came up
in gallant stylo, eaoh with ita rider seeming bent
on viotory. On all previous races, when the drum
would tap .for the start, cries of "hatB off," ??down
in front," "got out of the way," would be respond
ed to (as a general rule) politely and immediately
by the excited gentlemen whose hats were on,
who were up in front, or who were in the way.
'Twas not so, however, in tho hurdle race; for,
when at the tap of the drum the horses dashed
off like three frightened deer, politeness waa for
gotten in the intense excitement of the moment;
and so eager were all to Bee how the first hurdle
would be oloared, that the four thousand ladies
and gout lomon, who crowded the Grand Stand, all
arose simultaneously en marne.
Zigzag has the jump-now ho noars the hurdle
now he gathers himself beautifully-see where he
f-oes, clearing the hurdlo and spooning onward
ike tho wind. Knightlock follows m fine style, aud
over ho goes high and cloar. Gen. Williams rises
to the leap, but strikes the hurdle and lalla heavi
ly on his rider, injuring bim most seriously. The
rider is quickly carried off in a death-like swoon,
wbile the poor horse rises to bia feot and attempts
in vain to run on and catch th? other? n,? Ojiug
?u?mr? in me distance. Horso and rider are soon
forgotten, as in this life the fallen and unfortu
nate ever are. and all are gazing intently at Zig
zag and Knightlock.
The latter soon leads the favorito, and away they
go beautifully over the hurdles-Knightlock run
ning with better speed, but Zigzag ni au in g the neat
est leaps. As they went over the fifth hurdle (thu
fifth in the two miles) Knightlock cleared it well,
hut Zigzag made the most beautiful, and I may
say gracorully, artistic loap that it "were possible
for horse or deer to make; the noble animal rose
with an almost poetic graoe, his fore and hind
legs (in fact, his four legs) going clean and clear
over the budge ere ho began to descend from the
leap. On perceiving this I made a mental wager
with myself that he would win the race, although
Knightlock was flying onward like an insane deer.
A sporting gentleman in the crowd must have
shared the opinion, for he proposed, in a loud
tone, to go $1000 to $600 on tho hindmost horse,
and his proposition waa not accepted. Both horses
have cleared the fifth and sixth hurdles, and now
they near the seventh, Knightlock still leading by
a couple of lengths. Now he rises to the leap
which should be last but one, but it proves to be
the last, for he strikes the hurdle and goes heels
over head tumbling on the ground and throwiug
his rider, who, however, was not much injured.
The victory is now left to Zigzag, provided he does
not break his neck on the last leap, and provided
he comes into the Judge's Stand with his rider on
his back. Now the gallant steed rises to his
last jump; he is almost over, and the brave and
skilfull darkey rider who mounts bim is so excited
iu anticipation of victory that he is heard to ex
claim "nuzza," and - down tumbles Zigzag,
throwing the nigger over his head. The negro
had hardly struen the ground before he and the
noble steed both arose, and the rider hastily
throwing himself in the saddle rode into the win
ning poBt amidst such doafoning cheers as I have
no ver heard before, except on an ocooasion (in the
Institute Hall in Charleston) which may as well
not be more particularly referred to here.
I have given so much space in this l'jtter to the
one subject that I have only room to fulfill one
more promise made in ray last, by adding a few
remarks in relation to the Botels.
Your readers are no doubt aware that the two
beat hotels here, in which they were accustomed to
"put up" in times long gone by, have boen de
stroyed by the fiery foe. The united Stale? is no
more. Congre?? Hall no longer stands. The
former may continuo to be no more, but a move
ment is on hand looking to the speedy rebuilding
of Congress Hall. There are no less than fifteen
hotels left, however, together with a very great
number of boarding houses. The five principal
hotels are the "Clarendon," " Union," "American,"
"Marvin House" (opened a few days ago), and
"Columbian." . , , a __?--, "
The Union, which is kept by Leland Brothers,
and the Clarendon, by Charles Jfi. Leland, are the
"grandest and the best;" ibu former ia the largest,
but tho latter is said to be the moro anetooratio
and recherche. The dining-room in the Union ia
the largest in the world (and the world ia a large
institution); it is two hundred and fifty foet in
length?fifty-three feet wide, twenty feet high, and
can seat twelve hundred guests at a time. Your
correspondent has tried tho hotels, and then sub
sided in a boarding house. I first tried the
Columbian.-which ia good, but whioh ia objection
able on tho ground that the guests sing hymns in
tho parlor from early morn till late at night, and
though hymns aro all vory woll in their proper
place, no mau likes to board lu a oburch. 1 next
tried the Union, and had tho pleasure of dining m
company with eleven hundred and ninety-nine
ladies and gentlemen, more or less, aud strango
to say, although finding it a nice and dear hotel,
I seceded from the Union because it was too dear ,
for an ex-rebel, and changed my base to a first
rate boarding house. To any of your readera who
may como here in search of psalm Bulging, I re
commend the Columbian (where the faro is fine).
Those who are well supplied with the needful,
should go to tho Union or the Clarendon, whilst
those who aro not over burdened with an incon
veniently superabundant supply of cash, oan find
scores of cheap and good boarding houses.
You shall hear from me again in a day or two.
I close this to go out and take a drink-of Con
gross water. MOULTRIE.

Washington, July 28-Tho telegraph will give
you tho latest Congressional news, which is so far
ahead of the even quick progress of the railroad
and would bo stale even upon the wings of the
wind now-a-days. I can romombor whon Profes
sor Morse was hore, worn, and weary, and poor,
trying to got Congross to consider his telegraphio
schemo. I can romombor mooting him at a party
and seeing him pointed out as an impracticable
enthusiast. If my recollection ia not very much
at fault, N. P. Willis, in his papor, stated that
Professor Mouse told him that at one time he was
bo poor, and helpless, and friendless, that he con
templated suicide. Now he is ono of tho rich
men of the country-the greatest inventor of the
The year of General Habbison'b election, and of
my first viBit to Washington, I boarded with a
widow lady, among whoBO boarders was a Mr.
Colt. I had known the lady well in her married
life in Cincinnati, and wsb the friend of her hus
band and had her confidence. Ono day, in telling
mo of hor difficulty in getting along, aho asked
me to find out for her if her hoarder, Mr. Colt,
would ever bo able to pay her forty-three dollars
which he owed her for board, and which, she re
marked, abo could not afford to lose. That Mr.
Colt was the afterward famous Colonel Colt, the
celebrated inventor of Colt's famous pistol, who
died a few years ago the poaseasor of millions.
Before I carno to Washington, while living in
Cincinnati, one day a Mr. Colt called upon me
with the request that I would look over the proof
eheets of a work on book-keeping, which he pro
posed to publish. I declined, as I waa not a good
proof-reader, and the request waa made of me by
a stranger. He was quite ' importunate that I
should undertake the task, and promised to re
munerate me for it if I would. I still declined,
for tho good reason that I oould not read proof,
He was a good-looking man, of insinuating ad
dress, about the middle height, slim, with quick
movements. He had a prominent forehead and
nose, compreased lipa, and restless, suspicious
eye. After he left, my eiater.'who was in the
baok room, and overheard our conversation, re
gretted that I bad not complied with his request,
as he was her writing-maator, and quite a
gentleman. This was the Colt, the brother of
the pistol inventor, who afterwards committed
the celebrated Adams murder in New York.
I remember well how earnestly and anxiously
his brother in Washington (for it was while I
was here the murder waa perpetrated) tried to get
him off. Tho murder was a singular one, which,
no doubt, some of your readers, particularly legal
ones, well remembor. Colt had an oui co in New
York. He owed Adams a au;n of money. Some
one told Adams that Colt wa/) about to leave for
Philadelphia without payinii him. Ai>A=ia --out
indignantly to Colt's room, and was missed there
after. A voaaol that was, for some cause or other,
delayed in the New York harbor, became very of
fensive to all on board, from a stench proceeding
from her hold. Search waa made. A box was
found, whioh, on being opened, disoloaed the body
of a man, with the head and limba apart, in a
state of putrifaction in the box.
After great search and efforts by advertise
ments and otherwise, a drayman presented
himself who stated that he had taken the box,
whioh ho instantly recognized, from ?Jolt's room.
Colt was arrested, tried for the murder, and, my
impression is, committed auioido in his cell. Now
if Colt, when he killed Adams, had gone forth to
a magistrate and given himself up, saying that
Adams had assaulted him, and he had killed him
in self-defence, what proof" could t ere have been
to convict him of murder? But the mangled con
dition of his victim's body, and his attempt se
cretly to have it transported away, showed his
guilt. John Howabd Payne, the author of the
immortal song of "Home, Sweet Home," was a
great friend of Colt, and went from here to visit
him on his trial in New York, told me a little
anecdote of dib friend, which shows the great
suspicion of Colt's character.
Payne and Colt first met in St. Louis, and Colt
there made Payne the present of a sword-cane,
whioh had Colt's namG upon its golden head.
Colt told Payne that he wished that Payne would
have his name erased from the cano; for, said he
to Payne, if you should lose it, or it should be
stolen from you, and a murder should be commit
ted with it, and it should be found by the body of
the murdered man with my name upon it, I might
be accused of the murder, and you might not be
here, by whom I could prove that I gave the cane
to you. How true what the great poet Bays:
"Suspicion ever haunts tho guilty mind."
You remember that the Pabkman murder in
Boston, by Dr. Webbteb, was of muoh such a
character as this of Colt; but in the Websteb case
he sought to buru the body of his victim.
These murders have beon called to my mind by
the great quarrel boro over the award in the
Booth case just made by Congress. I sat, last
night, an interested listener to the disouBaion of
the award by a number of sharp men, who seemed
more deeply interested in it than in any other
matter before Congress, though they had no
pecuniary interest in the niattor, yet by sym
pathy, it touched their pocket nerve. Late at
night, when I retired, they were still in the dis
cussion, and no two of them had agreed as to a
Bingle award. A celebrated king tried to make
two watches keep the same time, and finding that
he could not succeed, woll remarked what a fool
he had been in trying to make two mon think
Think alike I Why the Babol of opinion here on
politics is Just as profound as In that of the
award in the Bootu case-more so-yet note what
party and personal interests will do when we see
these Badioals held together by what Mr. Oal
hodn called "the oobeslve power of publio plun
der." They will como right from tbo Halls of
Congress, where they have just voted to sustain a
measure, and say they know it was not all right,
but that they had to sustain " the party."
Terriblo ia the tribulation of men here who havo
axes to grind, or irons in the fire, over the ad
journment of Congress, and nothing dono in there
case 1 Each man is the most injured individual
that the buu over shone upon. Each will hint to
you. if he does not tell you openly, of the rascality
of ula neighbors' claim or purposes, whatever
they may bo, before Congress, but bia own is as
pure as the snow on Diau a temple. Iccmaoulate
Last night, ringing my bell in vain, I called to a

How Henri Contre Stephens Broke Jail.
Stephens, tho Fenian loader, has givon an in
teresting account o? the niauner in which he es
caped rrom tho Richmond (Inlund) tiriion. Tho
day after ho wait locked up he was informed by a
mend that his escapo lind been planned by
parties outside-. Ho was told a few days later
that tho 21th of November was the dnv solected.
His fricndH had procured kevs for tho six or
seven doore between his cell and the prison wall,
w, .u w0a?^?".v-(Ho feet high. On I ho evoning
of the 22d ho went to bed at tho usual hour, oigbt
o clock. Ho was very drowsy, and it required all
his efforts to k<ip awnko. About two o'clock ho
heard a slight noiso at a considerable distance,
which ho at once know to bo tho sound produced
by opening the first gate. Soon after be heard a
similar noiso, and so on until tho koy turned in
his cell door. This grated *o noisily that it had
tobe drawn open with tho utmnst caution. Ste
phens bad rii-en and dreased himself about mid
night. Tho high wind, hoavy rain, and intonso
darkness of tho night, were all favorable for hia
escape. His friend pressed himself agaiust the
door to provent its croaking, and a revolver was
instantly placed in his hand. Thoy then passed in
the same manner through all the doora of the
prison, until they reached tho open air, when tho
outer wall obstructed their further progress.
It must remain a mystery how he ascended that
wall, but tho manner in which he descended it
was au follows : "Ho had beon given to under
stand that he muet leap from the top of the wall
into tho garden at the other sido. Boforo doing
so, howevor. he felt along the top of the wall, and
his hand carno in contact with a metal funnel or
stove pipo, at which he pulled, to see if it wero
firm enough to doscond by. Finding it quito firm
he lot himself down by it for some eight or ton
feet, when ho found himself on the roof of a shod,
down which ho slid to a path which ran by its
side. In that way no traco of bis descent was left,
and heneo the mystification of the detectives. No
sooner was he down than ho told his friends to
disperso immediately and go home. Two only re
mained with him. Thoy proceeded about three
hundred yards, when one of the two remaining
friends also left, aud he then proceeded to tho
house at wbich he was determined to take refuge.
8ix different houses woro ready to receive him
that night, and every one of the six owners re
mained up all night anticipating his arrival. No
one saw him enter the ?house in which he took
refnge, and from its windows could he seen the
prison in which he bad been confined.
