THE MJSK CASE-STATEMENT OF THE PRESIDENT
COMPLIMENT TO PRESIDENJOHNSON-REMOVAL
OF GENERAL POPE URGED-COTTON TAX REPEAL
BOUNTY MONEY-THE FINANCIAL PROBLEM.
Tho Washington correspondent of the Ballimore
Sun writes under date of Sunday :
lt is expected that tho President will send to the
Senate to-morrow a statement of facts and tho
record in tho case of Lusk, called f >r by resolution
of Congress. Lusk was tried by a military com?
mission for the murder of a negro, on a ?>oaf on
the Mississippi river, and sentenced to bo bung.
Tho defendant took exception to the jurisdiction
of thc commission, denving its lc galitv under thc
decision of tho United States Supreme Court in the
Mulligans ase, and claimed that bc should have
been trind by a civil court, which was open within
the 5th military district. On this exception and
under tho reconstruction law tho caso was present?
ed to the President, and is now under advisement
upon tho points above named. General Grant en?
dorses on the pip< rs his approval of tho sentence
of Lusk, upon tho ground that it is ono of tho first
cases of the kind arising undor the reconstruction

Mr. Johnson received tho highest number. The
cane is to be presented to tho President to-mor?
row by Mr. Robinson, member of Congress from
the Third District of New kork, who has been
selected by the lady managers of tho fair ?or that
Sonic of tho friends of tho administration urge
thc President to relievo General Popo, and appoint
General Meade to the command of his Military
District. The grounds upon which the removal is
ask?. '. are, that General Popo has recklessly re?
moved judicial and other civil officers elocted by
the people, that no acts are proved or attempted
to bo shown agaiust thc deposed officers which
can bc construed as obstructions to tho exocution
of tho Reconstruction acts, and that the officers
were removed morely to subserve political party
It is understood thit the Senate will to-morrow
pass thc Honso bill to repeal tho tax on raw colton,
with but five or six dissenting votes. A struggle
is expected upon the proposition to make tho law
apply to this year's crop, but it will fail upon the
belief of Senators that very little if any of that
crop is now owned by the growers.
Further legislation upon bounties is deprecated
by members of Congress, and it is not likely that
any bill can pass which makes furthor appropria?
tions for that purpose. Already thirty-five mil?
lions of dollars nave been paid out under the late
oxtra-bounty law, and the Paymaster-General esti?
mates forty-five milbons of dollars as the amount
required to pty tho balance under that act. Over
ono-halfof this goes to claim agenta and attor
Leading Republican Congressmen say the finan?
cial problem will not divide tho Radicals nor nec?

party in tho coming Presidential election, becauso
they expect to pass an act during tho prosent ses?

and cement the Republicans so as to produce
unanimity of action in tho convention.
SENATOR SUM.NEB'8 VIEWS ON DISFRANCHISEMENT
IMPEACHMENT AND GENERAL GRANT.
Tho Washington correspondent of tho New York
Herald writos under date of Saturday last :
Three delegates to tho lato council of the Loyal
League-Messrs. Moss, Mackey and Pilsbury
called on Senator Sumner to-day to learn his viows
about matters pertaining to the* government of tho
South. In reply to tho question wdietber it would
be better to adhere to the Congressional plan of
disfranchisement or go further and disfranchise
still more, the Senator replied that the safest
policy, and tho ono calculated to secure loyal inter?
ests and lovat governments, would bo a moro ex?
tensive scheme of disfranchisement, embracing,
besides those who t merly held offices in tho fed?
eral service, all who .ook an active part in further?
ing tho secession movement and all who were in
any sphere leaders ot tho people and carried thc
crowd with them. Ho felt outraged in reading,
a lew days ago, tho proceedings of tho Con?
servativo Convention assembled in Richmond,
in which men liko Hunter, Rives, Lctchcr and
others of that class appeared and dared to dictate a
policy to tho American people. Such men should
never again obtrude themselves on public notice,
and should especially refrain from attempting to
offer advice or deliver opinions on tho affairs of the
nation. Ho felt particularly incensed against the
obstructionists in Congress-the so-called Consei
vative Republicans-whoso timid time-serving ac?
tion bad already proved tho bane of tho party. He
and Ben Wade "had dono their utmost to carry out
the true principles of tho party, but they invaria?
bly lound themselves thwarted hy tho progressive
aud less sincere men on their own side. The two
great mistakes of the Republican party were
the iai'uro to impeach tho President and the
failure to pass a political rights bill. In avoid?
ing the execution of these two measures, they
placed the spoon ii. the hands ol' tho De?
mocracy with which to stir np tho preju?
dices of the manses and misrepresent thc motives
of republicanism. He contended that winn Con?
gress passed tho civil rights bill, the sanio argu?
ments used to enforce it could have been just as
well employed in the passage of a political rights
bill, which would have given suffrage to all the
colored people tliroughout tho country. He be?
lieved that tho constitutional amendment abolish?
ing slavery gives Congress the right to pass this
political rights bill, and bad they done so tho
colored people could have voted m thc recent elec?
tions, thereby taking away from the Democracy
the argument they used with such effect iii differ?
ent States of the North by holding up the burbear
of negro supremacy. Speaking ol' General Grant,
he said he considered him a good soldier, and no?
thing more. There was no record ol' his ever hav?
ing expressed a political axiom or an idea which
could afford the people au insight of his capacity
for stateinanship, or of thc course be would Ik)
likely to pursue if he were elected President. He
was therefore opposod to endorsing him as a can?
didate for the highest oliico in the gift of tho peo?
ple. Rolcrnng to impeachment, he expressed
himself sanguine thai it tho Houso had passed
the bill, tho Senate would have don?- its duty in
supporting them. One ot the deputation t'uid they
felt apprehensive in South Carolina that if they
framed too radical a constitution it might bo re?
jected by Congress, t > which Mr. Sumner replied
that they should entertain no taara or> that bead,
as Congress was awaro that the members of tho
convention living in the State knew what was
needed better than they did, and would not, there?
fore, reject any constitution pu account ol' its
being too radical.
THE OYSTER TRADE.-The Baltimore Gazette
speaks of tho oyster trade ofthat city as constitu?
ting one of ita largest industrial interests. The
business ol'canning oysters there was begun only
about ten years ago. The magnitude to which it
has mounted up may be understood from the fol?
lowing statement of thc Gazette:
There are at present about thirty packing
houses in the city, employing some forty-rive hun?
dred shuckers or"openers of oysters, of whom the
larger number are colored men and women. Over
ten thousand people are interested in tho oyster
trat1: in this city, these figures including thc
shucker*, passers, tinners, box-makers, wagoners,
and the employees in the different packing houses.
Of the 3 tsi'iO.i Ot) bushels ol'ovsters arinuallv brought
to this city, 1,875,000 bushels arc packed raw, 1,360,
000 bushels are preserved bv steaming and
packed, end 625,000 bushels are used in the shell
for the city and burr, undina country consomp?
tion. It is estimated that during tho "busiest sea?
son the varions packin r houses in the citv open au
aggregate of 45,000 bushels dailv. Of this large
amount by far tho greater part is distributed
among the cities of St. Louis, Chicago, Cincinnati,
and Louisville, and the remainder goes to tho
smaller Western cities and towns, many boxes KO
ing as far West aa Denver and Santa Fe. The
trade is an immense ono, and brines ti very large
amount of money into Baltimore, besid a giving
employment tc so many persona and vessels,

THE LATE HURRICANE AND EARTHQUAKE AT ST. THOM?
AS AND SANTA CRUZ-CESSION OF ISLAND OF ST.
THOMAS TO THE UNITED STATES, ETC.
Thc arrival of the United States steamer De
Soto, Commodore Roggs, previously reported lost
in tho earthquake at St. Thomas, Danish West
Indies, on tuc 18th of November, in Hampton
Roads, has already been announced.
Thc Do Soto loft St. Thomas at noon December
5th, making the passage In six davs and a half.
Although i onsidcrably damaged b'v the eirth
quako, she leaks but very little. The earthquakes
were of frequent occurrence from November 18th
up to the timo the Do Soto sailed, but they wore
not of great violence. The principal damage was
caused by thc first one, which shook thc buildings
to pieces, and the smaller ones which followed
only served to knock down the remaining' few that
re sisted the first shock. The De Soto's bottom
was temporarily repaired by tho divers from tho
wrecking company's schooner Competition, from
New York. Thc officers and crow ot the Do Soto
are nil well. Captain Burrough, United States ma?
rines, of the United States steamer Susquehanna,
died of yellow fever at St. Thomas, and whon tho
De Soto left.Rear Admiral Palmer, commanding tho
squadron, was lying dangerously ill with the fever.
It had also broken out on board* the United States
steamer Don; eighteen cases had already occurred,
which resulted in thc death of six of" her crew,
but there were no new cases for several days be?
fore tho leaving of the Dc Soto.
The officers of the Do Soto say they never be?
fore experienced anything so terrific as the earth?
quake. They were mostly dressing to go on
phore, it being about three o'clock in the after?
noon, when their attention was attracted to a
dull, heavy, rumbling noise, and all hands came
on deck to see what it was. None seemed to un?
derstand it except the chief engineer, who has
been in the service some twenty years, and who
told thom it was an earthquake, and that they
would presently soo a lanie wave, as they were
always accompanied by one. Une ol' the officers
then looked over tho'side of the vessel to dis?
cover it. but lound to his dismay that the water
was all receding from the harbor, and that the
vessel was being left high and dry. Tho chief
engineer then called their attention to a wave
about two miles ont, and which was rapidly ap?
proaching. Tho Do Soto was lying under out
anchor, which was speedily nm out, and the
wavo struck the vessel amidships, with terrifie
force, earning her far up tho harbor towards tho
town, breaking thc cable, staving in two of the
ship's boats, and carried another away, which
was subsequently recovered. This wave receded
and came m no less than six times, slewed her
keel, causing bei to leak considerably, which waB
subsequently temporarily repaired.
One of tho Monongahela's officers, in describ?
ing tho earthquake, states that the wave struck
the vessel amidships, the first one carrying her
up into tho town and into a storehouse. Thc
second ono hindi d her high and dry in ouc of the
principal streets of the place, where she now
lies, a monument of tho vast devastation com?
mitted. Four men of the Monongahela's crew
were drowned and ono had his skull fractured,
from the effect of which he has since died.
Commodore Uissoll, willi a few officers and
some of tho crew of tho Monongahela, remain at
Santa Cruz with the wreck. All her stores, equip?
ment, etc., have been gotlou out and stored, and
the Commodore will await further orders from tho

TKRRIIiLF. EARTHQUAKE -SHOCK OFF ST. CROIX.
I'NITED STATES STEAKS BIP kloNONQA HELA, (
ST. CHOIX, November 21,18(37. \
Sin: 1 have to stato, with deep regret, timi tho
United States steamship Monongahela, under my
command, is now lying on tint beach in front of tho
tomi of Fredcrickstedt, St. Croix, where she was
throwm by the most fatal earthquake ever known
hore. The aho<-k occurred at :l o'clock 1'. 51. of tho
18th inst. Up to that moment the weuthcr was
setene, and tm indication of a cluiuge showed by
tho barometer, which stood at thirty degrees fif?
teen minutes, 'i he first indication we had of the
earthquake was a violent trembling of the ship,
resembling the blowing off of steam. This
lasted some thirty seconds, and immediately
afterwards the water was observed to be receding
rapidly from the beach. In a moment tho current
was changed, anlborc the ship towards the beach,
carrying out the entire cable mid drawing tho
bolts from ?lie kelson, without the slightest effect
in chocking her terrific speed towards the beach.
Another anchor was ordered to Le let go, but in u
few seconds she was in too shoal water for this to
avail. When within a few yards ot the beach the
reflux ol' the water checked her speed for a mo?
ment, and a light breeze trout Hie land gave nie n
momentary hope that the jib and forotopmast
staysail might pay her head ott' shore, so that in
tho" reflux of tho wave she might reach waters suf?
ficiently ileop to float her, anil f hen bc brought up
by the other anchor. These sails were immediate?
ly set, and she payed off SD as to bring her broad?
side to the beach. When the sea returned, in the
form nf a wall of waler twenty-live or thirty feet,
high, it carried us over the warehouses inti) the
inst street of tho town. This wave, in receding,
took her hack towards the beach, and left her
nearly perpendicular ott thc edge of a coral reef,
where she has now keeled over to an angle of
All this was the work ol a few moments only,
and soon after the wafers ?if the bay subsided into
their naturally tranquil state, leaving us high and
dry upon the beach. During her progress towards
the beach she struck heavily two or three times;
thc first lurch carried tho rifle gun on tie- forecas?
tle overboard. Had thc ship been carried ten or
littoen foot further out, she Jmust inevitably have
been lorccd over on her beam ends, resulting, 1
fear, tn her total destruction, and in thc loss of
ninny lives. Providentially only four mon were
lost; these wen- in the boats af the time the shock
commenced. The boats that wen; down were all
swamped except my gig, which was crushed ander
the keel, killing my coxswain, a most valuable
man. During this terrific Bcene the officers and
men behaved with coolness and subordination. It
affords me great pleasure tn state thai ?liter a
careful examination of tho position and oondition
of thc ship I am enabled to report that shu has
sustained no irreparable damage to her hull. 'The
?t'-rnpost is bent, and some twenty feet of her
keel partially gone; propeller and sliafl uninjured.
Tho lower pintie of the radder is KOBO, but un
other damage is sustained by it. No damage is
done to her liull moro serums than the loss nt
several sheets cf Copper, torn from her starboard
biige and Lom her keel.
She now lies on the odgO of :: eula! reef, which
foims a solid foundation, nu which way- may Im
laid. She can thus bc launched m ten feel of water
at one hundred feet from the beach. Gentlemen
looking at tho ship from shors declare that the
bottom of tho hay was visible where there was be?
fore, and is now, forty fathoms ol' waler.
To extricate the ship from her pres? tit position
I respectfully suggest thal Mr. J. H an scorn be seul
down, with mutable material for ways ready for
laying down, aud India rubber camels to buoy her
up. 1 think there ir; no insuperable ni,stacie to
ber being put afloat, providing a Rang of ten or
twelve good ship carpenters Ix- sent down with the

Tho cxploaion at Clcrkcnwoll prison lias roa wak
oned tho Fenian excitement throughout England
and Ireland. Cable telegrams say :
Thc London journals ali declare that tho time
for lenitv to the Fenians has passed. The London
Times characterizes their acts as a mixture of
treason and assassination. There wero rumors
current that Kellv, who was rescued at Manches?
ter, is still in England directing tho movements of
tho Fenian Brotherhood. The explosion at Clerk
enwcll is said to have been ono of his schemes.
Largo rewards havo boen offered by the British
Government for the discovery and arrest of tho

All the Fonian demonstrations that were to have
been made yesterday in various cities throughout
Great Britain were forbidden by the authorities.
In London six thousaud regular troops wero kept
under arms all day to assist the police if their ser?
vices should bo needed. There was much indig?
nation exprossed by those who sympathize witta
tho Fenians, but no'disturbances occurred.
Thc Fenians Warron, Halpin and Costello, in
convict uniform and closely shaved, wero put on
tho 27th on board tho mail steamer for Holyhead,
en route for Pontonville.
A dispatch from Dublin says: A funeral proces?

Irishman, tn giving these "declarations," says :
"It has been stated iu tho English papers that
the three victims at Manchester left written
declarations in the hands of their confessors.
These did not think it prudent to give them publi?

TUE DECLARATION OF WILLIAM PHILIP ALLEN.
"I wish to say a few words relative to tho charge
for which I ara to die. In a few hours more I will
be going before my God. I state in the presence
nf tho great God that I am not the man who shot
Sergeant Brett. If that man's wife is alive, never
let her think that 1 am the person who deprived
her of her husband ; and if his family is alive, let
them never think I am tho man who deprived them
of their father. I confess that I have committed
other sins against my God, and I hopo ho will nc
cept of my death as a homage and adoration which
I owe his Divine Majesty, and in atonement fur my
past transgressions against him." He adds, fur?
ther on : "But then 1 ought not to complain.
Was not our Saviour sold for money, and his lifo
sworn away by false witue-iEes.'"
DECLARATION OF MICHAEL LARKIN.
"Men of tho World-I, aa a dying man, going
beforn mv God, solemnly declare I never fired a
shot in all my lifo, much less tho day the attack
was made on tho van, nor did 1 ever put a hand to
the van. Tho world will remember thc widow's
son's life that was sworn away, by which ho leaves
a wife and four children to mourn h:s loss. I am
not dying for shooting Brett, but for mentioning
Colonel Kelly s and Deasy's names in tho court. I
am dving a patriot for my God and my country,
and Larkin will be remembered in time to como
by (ho sous and daughters of Erin."
DECLARATION OF MICHAEL O'BRIEN.
"I have only.to make these few remarks. 1 did
not uso a firearm or throw stones on the day that
Colonel Kelly and Captain Deasy were so gallantly
roscucd. I was not present wlicn tho van was at?
tacked. I say this uot br way of reproach, or to
give annoyance to any persons, but I say it in thc
hopo that witnossos may oe more particular when
identifying, and that juries may look moro closely
to tho character of tho witnesses and to their ovi
denco before thoy convict a person to send him be?
fore his God. I "trust that those who swore to see?
ing mo with a revolver or throwing stones were
nothing moro (han mistaken. I forgive thom from
my heart, and, likewise, I forgive all who havo eve::
done mo or intended to do mc an injury. I know I
have been guilty of many sins against my God; in
satisfaction for "those sins I have tried to do what
little ponanco I could, and having received tho
sacranionts of thu Church, I have humbly begged
that He would accept of my suflerings and doath,

AN INTERNATIONAL MARITIME EXHIBITION.-A
maritimo exhibition will open at Havre, in France,
on the first of Juno, 18G8, and continuo until thc
thirty-first of October. Grounds on thc seashore
have been granted by tho government, which

light tax varying with the spaco occupied, is ex?
acted of exhibitors to dotray tho necessary ex?

spot tho articles which thoy show.
Tho exhibition will include five departments,

miscellaneous articles, '.n the first department
will be exhibited models, plans, &e., of sailing
vessels, steamboats, piopcllers, row-boats, iron
built vessels, masting, rigging, sails, ship mate?

Final arrangements were signed recently nt
Vienna, by virtue of which the Empress Charlotte
is recognized universal legatee of her deceased
husband, and preserves, with her ?lowry, the
palace of Miraniar and the Island of Lacroma.
The Court of Vienna also restores to her Hie join?
ture to which she has a right by her marriage con?
tract, but which she had given up on tho acces?
sion of her husband to the throne ol' Mexico.
Thc London J "all Mall Gazette, some time ago,
took occasion to sa\ I hat volunteers wore not able
to cope with regular troops, as the recent defeat
of Garibaldi tn Italy proved, and, therefore, that
tho English volunteer militia system was of no
valor aa a defence. An argument at unce sprung
up on this subject with other journals, but it was
generally admitted that, although England waa
defenceless, she was safe; for in tho improbable
event of a foreign war England would bo let alono,
whilst her oolomcs anil merchant ship; ing would
chiefly be attacked.
