WILMINGTON, October 19.
The steamer Cuba was libelled to-day, and the
United States Marshal boarded her and demanded
the surrender of the ship Into his hands. Commo
doreHiggins declined to surrender his ship except
to an, otllcer of the United States Navy, and under
a direct order from President Grant. After some
delay. Lieutenant Commander Pierson, of the
United States gunboat Frolic, went on board the
Cuba and demanded the surrender of the vessel,
showing an order direct from the President for
tho Cuba to ba turned over to him. Commodore
Higgins then surrendered his sword and vessel to

A Pleasant Assurance from the Presi?

Mr. Robert Bonnor, of New York, recently
wrote to General Grant asking him to make a
'.brief denial over his<*wn signature of all fore?
knowledge of thc gold combination, in onler
to relieve himself entirely from all responsi?
bility for thc acts of others." Mr. Bonner
added that those who know General Grant
personally required no disclaimer; bat thc

Injure him, would be at once sat ?siled and
quieted by such a statement. The President
replied In the following letter:
WA. .INOTON, D. C.. October 13.
Robert Ronner, Es'?:
DEAR SIR-Your favor of tho 11th instant ls
received. I have never thought of contradict?
ing statements or insinuations made against
me by irresponsible parties, as those.as alluded
to in your letter; but as you have written to
rae on the subject, in so kind a spirit, L, will
say that I had no more to do with the latOgold
excitement in New York City than yourself,
or any other Innocent party, except that I
ordered the sale of gold to break the ring en?
gaged, as I thoueht, in a most disreputable
transaction. If the speculators had been suc?
cessful you would never have heard of any one
connected with the administration as being
connected with thc transaction. Yours, truly,
U. S. GRANT.
P. S.-I have written this in great haste, and
without exercising judgment as to the nro
priety of writing it, but I submit lt to your
judgment. U. S. G.
-Dr. A. W. Hall, in a lecture last week be?
fore the Polytechnic branch of the American
Institute, on the cause of auroral lights, took
issue with Professor Loomis and other scient?
ists who attribute these phenomena to electri?
cal action. Dr. Hall's theory ls that the boreal
display is produced by the rays of the sun,
which are reflected from clouds surrounding
the pole to the ice and snow of the Arct.c re?
gions, and thence again reflected to the
clouds, and so back and forth until it comes
within our range of vision. The glancing and
flashing of the columns of light, he
nolds, are caused by the motion of
the clouds, an exact correspondence being
traceable, the Doctor contends, between the
movements of the light and those of the
clouds. In confirmation of Iiis llieory the
speaker cited the cases of similar displays of
auroral light in the east just before sunrise,
and in the west just after sunset, when there
are banks of clouds visible from which the
6un's rays are evidently reflect! fl. The arches
or bows often seen in the north are also easily
explained according to this hypothesis, while
by the electrical theory they are inexplicable.
The deflection of the needle and other mag?
netic effects, sometimes observed during an
auroral display, are attributed by Dr. Hall to
the fact that the state of the atmosphere most
favorable for these successive reflections of
sunlight from the pole ls also favorable for the
action of the electrical forces which produce
the magnetic disturbances.
-The procession at Louisville on Thursday
last in honor of the convention was on a more
extensive scale than any ever before witnessed
in Louisville, if not in the West. All the va?
rious branches of mercantile and manufacturing
trades of the city were represented. It is es?
timated that the expense incurred by this
graud display was not less than $75,000. There
were 1280 horses and about 500 wagons lu the
procession. It was lu motion two hours, and
passed over a distance of six or seven miles.
The only parade of the sort at all comparable
to it was that in honor ol' General Harrison at
Dayton, Ohio, in the memorable year 1840;
even that great political outpouring was in?
ferior in all respects to the vast display In
Louisville. Prominent in the linc was what
is said to have been the largest and the finest
ombibus in the world, furnished by the Louis?
ville Transfer Company, and drawn by ten
horses, each steed accompanied bv a colored
footman, iu Turkish costume. On the top of
the omnibus was a temple of liberty, within
which sat Miss Mary Glass, attired as the God?
dess of Liberty. She was supported on either
side by lads representing the ?univ and navy.
Within the omnibus were over lotty young
misses, all dressed in white, with wreaths of
lresh flowers aud badges bearing the mums o:'
the States and Territories.
THE YERGER CASE.
Thc Principle? In vol vc d-Thc C
Threatened-What President Grai
Told will be his Duty in a Cer
[FROM AN OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT.
The leading topic of interest in the capita
now is the case ex parte Yergcr, which has
been argued before thc Supreme Court-a
familiar to the people of the South, and tc
whole country, inasmuch as it involves thc p
of the Federal Government to authorize, cv<
law, the trial of a civilian by military con
sion In time of peace, and in a State and d?
where civil courts are open.
It is unnecessary to go into the details of
case. Suffice it to say that Mr. Verger was
by a military commission at Jackson, MLssls.?
for an offence against the laws of that i
found guilty, ant) sentenced to suffer death,
counsel, however, brought the case before
Chief Justice of thc United States, on a mot io;
a luabeas corpus, several months ago, whet
stipulation between them and the Attorney-G
ral or the United States, it was agreed thai
motion should be argued at the present ter
the court, and in the meantime the sentenct
posed by the military commission should be
pended. Mr. Verger, however, ls still in prl
and his case Is upou the docket or thc highes
dicta] tribunal in the country, where the po wi
the law-making department or the governn
to authorize thc trial of civilians tn any other
than that pointed out by the constitution, is t
finally, and, 1 hope, forever determined.
It will be remembered that the power cia!
in this Instance ls found In i.neormoreol
numerous "Reconstruction"' acts, so-cal
which have been passed by Congress since
close of the war, and as those acts rest upon
assumed authority on the part of the Fed
Government, to render the civil power lu
South subordinate and inferior to 'tie minti
the opinion of the court in this case will be of
most vital Importance in Judicially detennin
so great a question.
If it shall he adjudged that Congress ha;
power to establish military government and n
tary law, in any State or States or thc Union,
time or peace, thc bottom will be knocked ou
the "reconstruction"" tub; and sooner or la
every act of that body, relating to thc govt
ment of the Southern States, will share the sa
fate, and The c'ountry will again be restorer
Its former system of free government, sustali
and strengthened by a constitaglonal recognlt
of the reserved rights of the several States.
It requires no argument to show the Illegal
and unconstitutionality or the trial or cl villi
by military tribunals in places where civil con
are open. The Constitution of the United Sta
is so clear and explicit on this subject, thal hew
would attempt to controvert it must either be
down as a knave or a fool.
It may, however, be intere&ting to your reade
in forming an opinion as to the probable result
the case referred to above, to mention a Bimi
and a very' celebrated case which ls still fresh
the minds of the people, and which, on accot
of the great principle Involved, may with tn
be styled the most important case ever det
mined by thc Supreme Court of the United Stat
LamlMlin I*. Milligan, a citizen of thc Unit
States, and a resideut and citizen of the State
Indiana, was arrested on the 3d day of Octob
1864, at his home in said State, by order of l?rei
Major-General Hovey. military commander of t
District of Indiana, and by the same anthon
confined in a military prison at or near Indiai
polls, the capital of thc State. On the 21st d
of the same month, he was placed on trial befe
a "military commission" convened at ludianai
lis, by order of the said general, upon the folio
lng charges preferred by Major liurnett. Jud
Advocate of the Northwestern Military Hepa;
1. Conspiracy against thc Government of tl
.2. Affording aid and comfort to Hie relit
against Hie authority of the United States.
3. Inciting Insurrection.
4. Disloyal practices/hnd,
5. Violation or Ute laws of war.
Without reciting thc details of this trial, lt
sufficient to say that Milligan was found guili
on all thc" charges, and sentenced to suffer dent
by hanging, and this sentence having been ai
proved, he was ordered to be executed on Frida;
the 19th or May, 1800.
On Hie lath of that same May, 1865, Milliga
Hied his petition for a habr?s corpus In the Cf
cult Court of thc United States for the Distrk
of Indiana. After setting forth the facts cot
nected with his arrest and trial by "militar
commission," thc findings, sentence, approvt
thereof, 4c, he then set forth the additional fat
that while he was held and detained, as airead
mentioned, in military custody, (and more Uta
twenty days after his arrest,) a grand Jory fo
the Circuit Court of the United States fur th
District of Indiana, was convened nt Indianapc
Us, his said place of confinement, and duly em
fianelled, charged and sworn for said district
held its sittings, and finally adjourned wiihou
having found any bill of Indictment, or made an;
presentment whatever against him; that at n
time had he been in the military service of th
Unite* States, orin anyway connected with th
land, or naval force, or the militia In actual ser
At the hearing of the petition in the Circu?
Court the opinions or the Judges were divided ot
thc following questions, namely:
I. " On thc facts stated lu thc petition anc\ ex
hibits ought thc writ of habeas corpus to bc ls
sued according to the prayer of said petitioner?"
II. " On the facts stated in the petition ami ex
hibits ought the said Milligan to be discharge!
from custody, as in said petitiou prayed?"
III. " Whether upon the facts stated In thc pe
titlon and exhibits thc military commission hat
Jurisdiction, legally, to try and sentence said Mil
ligan in manner and form as lu said petition am
exhibit ls stated V
On the division of opinion mentioned above
these questions were certilled to the Supreme
Court of the United States aud argued at the De?
cember term, 1S65. The opinion of the Conn
thereon was delivered the following term, ami
may bc fountl In 4th Wallace, commencing ai
The opinion ls a very elaborate and exhaustive
one, reviewing the whole case, and emphatically
declaring that Congress has no power to author?
ize the trial of civilians by military commissions
in places where civil tribunals are open, and
where they might be regularly and fairly tried
according to the constitution anti laws of the
United States and of thc State wherein the al?
leged offence was committed.
In proceeding, thc court said:
"Every trial involves the exercise of judicial
power; and fruin what source did the military
commission that tried him (Milligan) derive
their authority? Certainly no part or the
judicial power of the country was conferred
on them, because thc constitution expressly
vests it 'in one Supreme Court and such
inferior courts as Congress may from time to
time ordain and establish;' and it is not pretend?
ed that the commission was a court ordained and
established by Congress. They cannot justify on
the mandate of the President, because he ls con?
trolled hy law, and has his appropriate sphere of
duty, which is to execute, not to make, the laws;
and there is nc unwritten criminal code to which
resort can be had as a source of jurisdiction."
"Martial rule can never exist where the courts
are open and in the proper und unobstructed ex?
ercise of their jurisdiction.''
"So sensitive were our Revolutionary fathers on
this subject, although P.oston was almost in a
state of siege, when General Gage issued his proc?
lamation of martial law, they spoke or it as un
'attempt to supercede the course or the common
law, and Instead thereor to publish ami order the
use of martial law."'
What th* court said of martial law, established
by order of the President or of a military com?
mander, is equally applicable in Hie case of Ver
ger. lt is to bc noted that the recent discussion
of thc case was confined, by order Of the Judges,
lo the quefctio:i of jurisdiction. Should this mat
.er be decided favorably for the petitioner, the
next question to come up will be on the merits,
which must necessarily involve the validity of the
Reconstruction acts, partially at least. With the
very' organization of the court at the mercy of
Congress, there ls a well-grounded fear perhaps
that the case will be disposed of upon some tech?
nical point. The executive and legislative
branches of the government being in manifest
and unchecked conspiracy against the vital prin?
ciples or the constitution, it would perhaps be ex?
pecting too much, in the opinion of some, to con?
clude that the other utterly powerless branch
would enter Into a contest which would probably
end In Its own "reconstructI*n," according to cur?
rent Radical usurpations. Yet there are signs In?
dicating that a majority of that august tribunal
will do their full duty, irrespective of Its personal
bearing. In apprehension that the writ will not
only be granted, but the petitioner tnrned over to
the courts upon grounds touching the powers of
Congress, Forney's Chronicle, thc recognized
organ of the administration here, thus threat?
"If, asys now apprehended, the majority of the
judges should assume, in granting this writ, to
declare the acta of reconstruction unconstitution?
al, a grave duty will devolve upon the Executive."
The same paper has heretofore declared it. to
be not only the "duty," but one 'that rei ll be
clwrrfully performed by the President. lu other
words, If the court shall decide, (what lt has ul.
ready. In fact, decided in the Milligan case,) that
a military upstart and his shabb/^taff cannot, lu
this country, string up or shoot down at random
citizens, guilty or not guilty, % thc midst of a
peaceful people amenable to civil legal courts
confessedly open, and Where justice, according
to the constitution and laws of thc United States,
can bc and constantly is administered, and shall
further order tiiat the present culprit shall be
turned over to the proper legal tribunal for trial,
that in that case his Excellency will Issue military
orders to lils military satrap, that the mandate
of the court shall be contemptuously disobeyetl.
The Radicals have been guilty of many abomina?
tions, bat have never yet essayed so glaring and
impudent un assumption as this.

ALL ABOUT TUE STATE.
Jail Delivery in Laarens.
The Laurensville Herald says: "On Wednes?
day night four negroes-Henry Martin. James
Craig alias Knox. Henry Suber and Richard
Simpson-escaped lrom the Jail In this place
by sawing one of the Iron bars in two. and lot?
ting themselves down by means of their blank?
ets. The first three had been sentenced to Im?
prisonment in the penitentiary; the last was
awaiting trial, charged with larceny."
The Laurensville Herald says: "A homicide
was committed on last Saturday night in the
neighborhood of Waterloo. It seems that Chas.
King, Jr., wits returning from this place to his
house, when he met with Thomas Patterson.
Words were exchanged which led to an affray,
in which King was killed. The Unding of the
lurv of Inquest is, that King came to his death
ov means of a rock in the bauds of Patterson.
There was un old feud between the two. Pat?
terson is still at large."
Another Radical Outrage.
The Augusta Constitutionalist says: "Our
readers remember the killing of A. G. Ruffin,
the Radical sheriff of this county, at the last
State election, and that the perpetrator of the
deed was unknown. Governor Bullock offer?
ed a large reward for the arrest of the alleged
murderer, but without securing his dis?
covery. Yesterday, a couple of tools ol'
Constable Hubbard, of South Carolina, ar?
rested a quiet, peaceable citizen of Ham?
burg, S. C., Mr. Robert Cunningham, on
the charge of killing Ruffin ! The arrest
was made ut the instance of Hubbard, who
mad-.' affidavit to the effect that upon infor?
mation received, he had reason to believe Cun?
ningham committed the murder. The pimps
of Hubbard, who made the arrest, went iuto
Cunningham's store on Thursday, In a friendly
way. Liking drinks there, and stating that the?
would call again yesterday morning, which
they did, arresting* Mr. Cunningham, placing
hin? in irons, and taking him to Columbia.
Thus has an Irresponsible, illegal, allen official
assumed the right to deprive an inoffensive
citizen of his liberties, for an offence of which
everybody knows he ls not guilty, which was
not committed In South Carolina, and when no
affidavit was made from the place where the
killing took place, and no requisition sent from

tain drawer in the Tuileries, called "Pandora's

put in to relieve the necessitous according to
their wants. Napoleon is not rich, never was

Paris dining with Rosa Bonheur, thus gossips
about her: "She has the Frenchman's way of
placing her Index Unger along thc full length
of her nose, which I never before saw a woman
do; and she parts her hair on one side, like a
man, letting it tall on lier forehead. It is en?
tirely gray, except where it is snow-white. In?
deed, the lady looks older than her mother.
She talks energetically, clearly, and rather di?
dactically, bul is extremely pleasant. Harry
showed lier his pistol, and she said: lOh yes, I
know, I carry one just like it,' and she pulled
lt out of her pocket to show lt to us. As lt
waa loaded, it frightened the family consider?
ably to see lier manouver it In her off-hand
way. After dinner she smoked her cigar like
the other gentiemen of the party."
-Americans who have visited the Cathe?

peculiar appearance of the "man in the serge
gown," who, with a voice as remarkable as
his person, bronglo, the people assembled
lrom all parts of the capital to hear him.
Above the middle height, broad-shouldered,
with a stoop in the back as if he had some?
thing concealed there beneath his clerical
robes; a short, thick neck, that brings down
his chin almost upon a level with his breast,
giving him a mutlled look; a wide mouth,
dominated by ai>?qui!ine nose, which, if size
bo an indication of genius, must make this
man a prodigy; clear, bright eyes, set well
apart toward the temples; a broad massive
forehead, retreating on each side with a won?
derful development of the perceptive faculties;
thin, brownish hair, never very carefully
cared for, and generally suffered to take its
own way, and shining from every part of this
remarkable physiognomy, a spirit of deepest
humility more marked from the look of reso
lulion accompanying lt, serve to make up the

title may be fairly given to a restorative which
has taken precedence of all other tonic .md al?
terative preparations for a period of nearly twen?
ty years. During that long interval HOSTET
TER'S STOMACH BITTERS may be truly said to
have enjoyed unrivalled popularity. Many prep?
arations have been got up to compete with ll,
but they have all fallen Into Its wake or sunk
Into oblivion for lack or patronage. From the
first, this now world-rcnownod Vegetable Tonic
has been both medically and financially success?
ful. Every year has added to the number of Its
friends, and the demand tor it, based solely upon
thc experimental proofs of Its excellence as a pre?
ventive and curative, seems to have no assign?
able limit. Thc medical profession sanction and
approve its use, and lt ls now at the head of the
class of medicines to which lt belongs, the ad?
mitted, undisputed sovereign tonic of the age.
The statistics of the United States Revenue De?
partment will verify thc statement that it stands
alone and unapproached In thc magnitude of its
sales as compared with those of any otner pro?
prietary remedy advertised on this side of the At?
The explanation of this fact may be comprised
In a few words. HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT?

most potent of all vegetable tonics, and the best
antidote to every variety of malarious disease.
Hence lt ls especially adapted to the present sea?
