POLL EXPLANATIONS OF THE JIUEDEB OP COLONEL
Wo have received the following letter from a
aiost respectable citizen, giving the particulars in
regard to tho above unfortanato affair:
To (he Editor of the Daily Kevcs :
Col. J. M. Steedman, in the vigor of his man
lood, and in the midst of his usefulness as one of
;ho best of citizens, cam - suddenly to bis death
inder tho following hearl '.ding circumstances,
llustrattng the dcplorab e state or affairs to which
>vr ono* peaceful and happy countty has come:
Engaged in merchandizing in a part of Lexing
?on District, whore, since the termination nf tho
var, it became necessarv to guard against tho de?
fecations of burglars, ne and lue little family oc
?upied ap-trtments within his store. On the night
if ibo 8tb January, as they were sitting around a
)right wintor's fire, the doors a .d windows all
?olted or locked, seeming to give security to all with
n, tho dogs, as faithful sentinels, gave'evidence of
.pproaching danger without. The Colonel arose,
dvanced toward the front door, when his wife,
a laug council "from her fears," from information
hat day derived from a negro woman, of which
he had also advised tho colonel, remonstrated
pith him against the imprudenco of opening it,
legging him, instead, to go up stairs and look out
t tho window; but this fearless man, having faced
langer on many a bloody field during the late war,
low that peace prevailed, regarding it asweaknoss
tot to feel secure within his own castle, heeded
iot her Kentle admonition. He had barely
nlocked and openod tho door, when his de
oted wife's worst fears woro fully realized
y tho report of a gun, the entire load from
b having lodged in her husband's body. Ho
till, however, retaining a proper presence ol'
lind, had barely tune to close and bolt tho door
efore the vile assassins-three negro men-were
Sundering at it, to force an entrance. The Colo
el called for his gun; thu resolute wife hastily
anded it to him. He w urned the assailants that
o sure as they entered he would shoot them. Still
liey knocked, kicked and pushed the door to open
;; tho wounded Colonel and his feeble, though re
olute wife, pressing in return to keep it closed.
That an awful moment ! 'The Colonel, being no
mger able to stand or use his gun, laid his dying
ody against the foot of tho door, still to aid his
ife in keeping it closed, directing her at the same
mo to shoot them if they entered. Declaring
loud hor purpose to do so, she called the name of
no of tbe fiends, the supposed-leader of the band,
nd told bim to go away; that if money was what
iey wore after, they could get none there, as all
ad' been sent away. This, perhaps, with the fear
lat the Colonel was still ab.o to resist, and would
nto death, caused them to desist from further
Sorts. Tho Colonel lived but about three hours
fter receiving tho fatal wotuid; his wife and two
tt.o children, with perhaps a nurse, beiug the
nly witnossos of the awful scenes within that be
lagured houso, not knowing how soon it might bo
St on fire, and that then they would havo to
lioose between being burned alive or meeting
eath bv tho violent hands of the murderers of thu
usband and father, there lying a corpse.
The day after the murder a jury of inquest was
ropurly ?mpannelled by tho nearest magistrate,
id. succeeded in drawing out such evidence from
irions witnesses as justified the rendering a vor
ict that they believed tho d eceased came to his
3ath by a wound from a gua, fired firm the hands
' one of a party of three negroes-Henry,
rnery and Joe-known to have been prowling
)out the neighborhood doing mischief, and all ol'
bom the jurors aforesaid believed to haro been
irtics to this infamous crime of murder with in
ntion to rob.
The two former went off with Sherman's army
id had but recently returnod to this part ot tho
luntry-entirely too lazy to work for an honest
ring, and fully inibuod with thc Radical idea of
mality, boastingly tolling other negroes of tho
irious murders they had committed, and saving
tat they had papers from tho "Yankees" which
auld proteo'- them from harm, do what they
Duld, should the white people here attempt to
olest them. Of course they found but few bo?
wers m their miraculous stories. Still it appears
>ey succeeded in making a dupe of the fellow
>o, who became involved with them in this their
st sad transaction.
This, I presumo, is not tho only instance in
bich returned "loyalists" havo succeeded in
irking upon the evil passions of those who, hav?
er Btuck to tho "manor born," would havo been
Jisfied, even under tho changed systom of
ings, to have "earned their bread by tho sweat
' their brow." I am glad, however, to be able to
sure you that in tliis instanco these returned
oyalists" havo received no sympathy from any of
0 colored race, except tho too oasily beguiled
ie, as already statod. On tho contrary, tboir
American fellow-citizens of African descent" have
anifested a laudable disposition to ferrot out
eir lodging places and havo them brought to
ndign punishment-many doclaring that burn?
ip t J doath would bo but a just reward for thou*
famous crimes. ,
Great was the excitement when tho neighbors
id friends of the deceased assembled tho day
ter thc murder, and learned all the incidents
tending it. Tho deed-so much O? teemed by
I-could not be brought again to I'.'o and useful
iss ; but how to avenge the infamous ? crimes of
s murderors, the destroyers of tho bright hopes
tho now widowed wife and orphaned children,
is the ail-absorbing question 1 It was ascor
ined from a negro that tho villain Emery, with
srhaps both the others, had flod early in tho
ght,-shortlv after tho report of the gun was
sard-f'r Aiton. Active, energetic, determined
?ung men were soon started iii pursuit ; but tho
ectric spark, from Quattlebaum's Mills-tho
iarest telegraphic oflice-had already accom
ished tho good work, in part, before their arrival,
be citizens, who had got the news soon after, se
ired him as a prisoner. Ho confessed not only
L but told where Henry had gone, a few miles
f. He, too, was soon secured, and acknowledged
ing the fatal gun, and that robbery was their
uy motive. Joe made good hid escape, and has
)t* been captured, BO far as I havo heard, but
irties have boen in close pursuit.
Those two prisoners wero brought back to where
iey had committed so foul a murder, that even
leur hardened consciences smote them. Implor
g forgiveness from the poor bereaved woman,
nose happiness they hail destroyed, she answor
1 them in tho true sentiments of her bleeding
uart, "Never in this world can I forgive you 1'
bey were soon marched away, toward Lexington
il, in tears. I know nc thing" farther of this mat
;r. This much I think is strictly true. I havo heard
,her rumors, but rumors will not always justify
>ing recorded in truth. v
I had writ on tho most of this article boforo I a
sw the account of this samo murder in your pa- c
;r of the 18th, copied from the Edgefiold Advor- ,
Ber, a paper gonerally corroct in its statements, t
it not altogether so in this case, as regards some f
! the incidents connected with this foul murder. (

Our Washington Letter.
[SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE OF THE DAHL'S NEWS.]
WASHINGTON, January 21, 1867.-Washington is
cut oil*! This calamity, many times experienced
during the late war, and whoso apprehension was
a constant source of nightmare to the denizonB
of tho District until "tho Johnnies wont marching
home," is now received with bad grace, and none
of the trepidation that used to mark the samo re?
sult, whan tho boom of EARLY'S cannon was tho
electrical bulletin that announced ino severance
of the Hes that bound Washington to the North.
There is said to be mountains of snow between
here and New York, and impeding avalanches from
New York to Boston. At all events, we have re
ccivod no mails from there these th?ce days past,
and but straggling, deferred returns from the
South and West. And now, to make tho seal of
our solitudo doubly impervious to tho humane en?
deavors of th 3 iron-horse to force a passage, a
terrific storm has swept over our own borough,
and blocked every avenue of approach for miles
about. Such an extreme stress of weather has
not been known in Washington for a quarter of a
century, and tho loss to farmers, resulting there?
from, is destined to be very great. Already there
has been heavy losses of stock from the extreme
cold and frequent snows, and this last storm will
ho followed by similar misfortune in a heavier de?
THE RADICALS AND THE SUPREME COURT.'
Last summer, about the time tho Civil Bights
Bill was pending, the Bache?is became apprehen?
sive that the Supreme Court might not agree in
the constitutionality of the hap-hazard legislation
thon going forward in both Houses, and thoreupon
passed a Bill, which they seemed- to have thought
ivould remedy tho possibility of such non-cohcur
renco. Tho measure in question provided that
whenever vaeancics by death transpired on the
jonch, they should not bo filled until tho number
)f Justices was reduced below seven, and then ap?
pointments should only be mado with reference to
naintaining the latter number-two less than at
present. Sinco tho promulgation of the late do?
nnions, denying tho validity of tho test oath and
nilitary commissions in territory not tho scene of
var, the Radicals seem to have been affected with
ta entiro revulsion of judgment in regard to con
lummating tho subserviency of tho Supremo tri
mnate to tho Congressional power. It is now
iroposed to add two (instead of substracting) to
ho bench, by increasing the number of districts.
It is undoubtedly promised, under these circum
jtances, that tho impeachment project is to suc?
ceed in decapitating Presidont Johnson, and that
Jen. Wado, hoing raised to tho succession, will
ippoint a braco of justices to the Supreme Court,
md thus dostroy the balance of purity and impar
iality that now pertains to that tribunal, by a
uajority of ono only. In every momentous issue
hus far, in which the question of politics haB been
loncerned, Chief Justice Chase has invariably led
?fi* in dissenting opinion, backed by three associate
usticos, in which the arguments were partisan
.nd almost exactly similar to tho Badi cal argu
aonts that may have sustained tho passage of the
[leasure whose validity was denied. If lam not
tii?taken, there will be the Aocessity of appointing
, new Chief Justice within tho coming two years,
or the incumbent is on that trail that loads to the
.residency, and will stake all in wresting a nomi?
nation from his party. Thc judicial pleadings latc
v given from the "wool-sack" in tho interest of
ho madness of the hour, aro not to bo lightly re?
garded, and, to my mind, it will be concurred in

A FLUTTER IN FINANCES.
Tho House committees, meddlesome and pro

L-oin the action of the Committees on Bank

oth of which aro affected with overweening de -
ire to try every imaginable experiment in the way
f evolving new laws regulating tho finances of
lie country, besides giving themselves up to tho
imorselesB pleasure of tinkering with tho method
heady in vogue. Both of theso Committees were
n Saturday afternoon treated to a call from Mr.
icCnlloch, who sought the interview with an idea
f elucidating to thoso profound Marplots of'suc

Our New York Letter.
[FROM OUU SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YORK, January 21.-TX thoro be such r. per
?on as tho oldest inhabitant of any place; if thoro
JO such a person hero, and if he had walked out
u tho streets to-day, he must have acknowledged
that never within his memory had he over expe
rieced such uncompromisingly and emphatically
disagreeable weather; and as this thought passed
through his mind he must have slipped and cursed
ind slipped again, onco more to blaspheme and
then to fall. Yesterday it was all woU and good
mough; thc snow lay jiiled up docply in the streets
Mid tho mauy sleigh-riders had a joyous time; but
last uight a disagreeable chango came ovor the
spirit of om' dream, thc weather clerk fast favor?
ing us with a very severe snow storm and then a
Irenchiug rain. Tho new snow, falling on the old,
piled up in beautiful style, but tho rain then fell,
lind tabing froze; so that to-day we walk upon ico
und slush, and slip three timos'in ovcrv lour stops.
Moultrie himself an hour ago lay in tl?o middle of
Broadway at tho mercy of rccltlcss and ill-tem?
pered stage drivers. It is almost impossible to
?et along, in fact I have never seen such weather
before, und hopo never again to suffer under the
slings and arrows of such an outrageons com?
mingling of snow, icc and slush: Tho" street cars
make less headway even than pedestrians, and as
badas thc walking is, people who aro in a hurry
pot out of the cars and slide and slip and skate
along. The worst part ol' tho business is, that the
snow is so deep that it is probable thai it will last
au unpleasantly long time, oven, till more falls lo
inako matters slill worse.
This is au agc of progress. Tho great excite?
ment of lite hour is tho proposed Pneumcter Rail?
way, to run under ground from one end of New
York to the other, and to run uudor water between
this city, Jersey and Brooklyn. The thing has
been tested iii Loudon, and ha's proved a success.
You take your scat in a car which stands innocent?
ly at ouc end of a dark tunnel. Tho signal is given,
and-presto J lo ! behold yon aro out at tho other
end in an exceedingly short spaco of time. Yow
arc not propelled by steam, iou aro not pulied
along by horses; rut you arc sucked alons by a
current of air. You arc sucked along as von would
suck a diminutive piece of lemou peel through a
sherry cobbler tubo. Ymi aro literally sucked in,
though not so, figuratively speaking, for voutravol
at tho rata of one hundred miles por hour, and
there is no danget of a boiler bursting, as no
boiler is UBcd.
It is proposed 'hat ooo terminus bo erected near
tho City Hall Park, from which one lino is nra
through Chatham and New Chambers stroct to
James' Slip, thence across to Brooklyn; another
to go down Chambers sfcroet, take a plunge under
the Hudson, and make its appearance in Jersey
City. Next comes the grand lino under tho city
itself-running under jBroachvay- accessible to
passengers by stations a half milo apart, having
spiral stops leading downwards to the track. Tho
cars will be similar to those used in England, and
will bo furnished most luxuriously. Each train
will be large enough to carry three hundred passen?
gers; and it has been computed that there will bo
a sufficient number of trains to accommodate one
milb'on passengers daily. Tho route proposed is
from City Hall rark up Broadway (up and under)
to Union Square, then up Madison Avenue to Forty
tbird, noxt across to Pifth Avenue, and thonco up
to Harlem Lane, and even up as high as McComb's
Another great project on hand, or on foot, is the
now gas arrangement, whereby the entire State is
to be supplied with gas manufactured at the coal
pita, and conveyed through mains to evory city,
bwn, and village in tho State. This will reduce
the price of gas nero to about one-fourth its pres?
ent cost. r
A chess tournament has been going on for Borne

IMPORTANT DECISION.-THE FREEDMAN'S BUBEAU
?ECIDED TO HAVE No VALIDITY IN KENTUCKY.
[on. K. Hawes, Judgo of tho Bourbon County
!ourt, has just rendered a decision, which ia of
nusual importance, and which, if sustained by the
igher courts, as we doubt not it will bo whon ju
icially tested, will effectually destroy tho power
f tho Freedmen's Bureau throughout the State
The decision was rendered in tho caso of a color
d woman, Harriet Hurley, who came, by her attor
ey, J. Lawrence Jones, before the court, praying
writ of habeas corpus against Dudley Cummins,
'ho, under color of an indenture *of apprcn
iceship by tho Bureau, was, as sho allcgod,
sstraining of their liberty two minors-her

f the Freedmen's Bureau wero not applicable to
I?8 State, but were cl?arly intended to apply to
iiose States only, which .woro in rebellion, and
'hero tho ordinary process of the law was suspeud

ellion, but was, through the whole period of tho
'ar. a loyal State, and aa such waa rcprosontcd in

iscover?d before it had mado any progress of

as almost instantly extinguished, otherwise tho
estmction of proporty would have been great,

delphia, formerly of Charleston, S. C. :
PHILADELPHIA, November 15,1865.
lhave been fora year or moro past in the habited t
taking the water of the "Excelsior" Spring of Saratoga.
Accustomed during the great portion of my invalid Ufe
to usc the different waters of tho several fountains whicn
boil up along that rcmarkalle valley, dependent indeed,
upon them for much of the comfort I enjoy, I am satis?
fied that the Excelsior Water is as well adapted cs any
othor among them, if not more to, to the purposes for
wliich they are generally employed. It is very agreeable,
strongly Iniprcgnated.with the carbonic acid, lively aaa'
sparkling. *. * * I can heartily and conscientiously
n'Commend it to all who need a gentle cathartic and
diuretic. SAMUEL HENRY DICKSON, M. D.
