Prison Lift- of Mr. Dnvis.
MAT 27.-Called in the morning
with the officer of the day, Capt.
Titfow. Found Mr. Davis in bed,
very weak and desponding. He bad
not slept. Had been kept awake by
the heavy surging of the wind through
the big trees on the other aide of the
moat. Appeared much relieved when
I told him the breeze was nothing like
a storm, though it blew North-easterly,
which was favorable to the Hhip con?
taining his family.
He expressed great concern lest his
wife should hear through newspapers
of the eeeno in his cell when he was
ironed. Would it be published, did
I think? And on my remaining
silent--for I knew it had been sent to
the newspaper on tire afternoon of
its transpiring-he interlaced his
fingers across his eyes, and ejaculated :
"Oh, my poor wife, my poor girl!
How the heart-rending narrative will
afflict her!"
He remained silent for some mo?
ments as I sat beside his bed; and then
continued, extending his hand that T
might feel his pulse:
"I wish she could have been spared
this Iqjowledge. There was no
necessity for the act. My physical
condition rendered it obvious that
there could be no iden that fetters
were needful to the security of my
imprisonment. It was olear, there
- fore, that the object was to offer an
indignity both to myself and the
.-anse I represented-not the less
sacred to me because covered with
the pall of a military disaster. It was
for this reason I resisted, as a duty to
my faith, to my countrymen, and to
myself. It was for this reason I
courted death from the muskets of
the guard. The officer of the day
prevented that result, and, indeed"
bowing to Capt. Titlow-"behaved
like ? man of good feeling. But, my
poor wife! I can seethe hideous an?
nouncement, with its flaming capitals,
and cannot but anticipate how much
her pride and love will both bo shock?
ed. For myself I am resigned, and
now only say, ?the Lord reprove
them!' The physical incovenience of
these things I still feel, (clanking his
ankles together slightly under the
bed-clothes,) but their sense of humi?
liation is gone. Patriots in all ages,
to whose memories shrines are now
built, have suffered as bad or worse
indignities."
He thanked me for the breakfast
that had been sent him, expressing
the hope that I would not let my wife
be put to too much trouble making
broth and toast for one so helpless
and utterly wretched,
"I wish, Doctor," said he, "I
could compensate you by getting well ;
but my case is most unpromising.
Your.newspapers," he went on-this
with a grim smile-4'should pray for
the success of your skill. If you fail,
where will their extra editions lie
their startling head-lines? My death
would only give them fooo for one or
two days at most; while my trial- -for
I suppose I shall be given some kind
\- of trial-would fatten thom for a
month's crop of lucrative excite?
ment.
Finding tho conversation, or rather
his monologue, running into a chan?
nel more likely to excite than soothe
him-the latter being the object for
which I was always wiUing to listen
during the fifteen or twenty minnies
those interviews usually lasted while
^p|<vas seriously ill-I now roso to
ike my leave, gently hinting that ho
shonld avoid sueh thoughts and topics
as much as possible.
He took my remark in a wrong
sense, as if 1 had been hurt at his
saying anything that might cast a
reflection on tho justice that would
be dealt to him by my Government,
or upon the style of journalism in
Northern newspapers. But I explain?
ed that nothing could be farther from
my thoughts; that my counsel waa
purely medical, and to divert him
from a theme that must re-arouse the
cerebral excitement we were seeking to
allay.
Called again at S p nv same dav.
' Mr. Davis- still very weak, and had
j been troubled with several faint, not
. exactly faint inp, spell?, his pulse ?n
?dicatiug extreme debility. He said
the nights were very tedious and hag?
gard. During the day l>e could find
employment by reading, (the Bible
or prayer-book being seldom ont of
his hand while alone,) but during the
night, his anxieties about his family
returned; and the foot-falls of the
I sentries in the room with hum-their
very broathing or coughing-conti?
nually called back his thoughts, when
otherwise, and for a moment, more
pleasantly wandering, to his present
situation. He had watched the wea?
ther all day with intense interest, aud I
had been choered tc observe from the
slant of the rain that the wind ap
! penrod to continue North-east, so
? that he hoped his family were, by
? this time, iu Savannah.
! Then went on to say that he foared,
j after he had l>een removed from tho
! Clyde, his wife must have suffered
the annoyance of having her trunks
searched - an unnecessary act, it
seemed to him, as, of course, if she
had anything to couceal, she could
have got rid of it on tile passage np?
On my remarking, to soothe him,
that no such search was probable, he
said it could hardly bo otherwise.
He had received a suit of heavy
i clothes from the propeller: and
Gen. Miles, when informing him of
! the fact, had mentioned that there
I wero quite a number of suits there,
j "And so, Doctor," he went on,
j "you think all the miserable details of
I my ironing have been placed before
j the public? It is not only for the
I hurt feelings of my wife und children,
\ but for the honor of Americans, that I
\ regret it. Mv efforts to conceal from
: my wife the knowledge of my suffer
; ings are unavailing; and it were,
! perhaps, better that she should know
j the whole truth, as probably less dis
! tressing to her than what may be the
, impressions of her fears. Should I
i write such a letter to her, however,
she would never get it."
! SUNTDAY, May 28.--At ll A. M. this
; morning, was sitting on the porch in
I front of my quarters, when Capt.
I Frederick Korie, Third Pennsylva
! nia Artillery, who was officer ot' the
j day, passed toward the celi of the
prisoner, followed by the blacksmith.
This told the story, and sent a
pleasant professional thrill of pride
through my veins.
Did not let Mr. Davis seo me then,
but retired, thinking it better the
prisoner should be left alone, in the
first moments of regaining so much
of his personal freedom.
Called again at 2 P. M. with the
officer of the day. Immediately on
entering, Mr. Davis rose from his
seat, both hands extended, and his
eyes filled with tears. He waa evi
dontly about to say something, but
checked himself; or was cheeked by
a rush of emotions, ard sat down
upon his bed.
I congratulated him on the change
observing that my promise of hi>
soon feeling better was being fulfilled
and ho must now take all tho exercise
that was possible for him, for on thii
his future health would depend
Capt. Korte, too, joined in my con
granulations very kindly, and spoke
with the frank courtesy of a gentle
man and soldier.
Recurring to the subject of hi:
family, Mr. Davis asked me had I no
been called upon to attend Mis
Howell, his wife's sister, who hn<
been very ill at the time of his quit
ting the Clyde. Replied that. Col
James, Chief Quartermaster, ha<
called at my quarters and requestei
j me to visit a sick lady on board tbo
vessel; believed it was the lady h
referred to, but could not be sure c
tho name. Had mentioned the mai
ter to Gen. Miles, asking a pass t
visit; but ho objected, saying th
j orders were to allow no communier
j tion with th?; ship,
i Mr. Davis exclaimed this was ir
human. The ladies had certain!
committed no crime, and there wei
no longer any prisoners on board th
ship when the request was made, L
and Mr. Clay having been the hu
removed. The lady was very ser
ouslv ill, and no officer, no gentli
man, no man of Christian or eve
I human fooling, would have so acte?
Gen. Miles was from Massachuaett
? he had heard, and his action both i
?this and other matters appeared i
j harmony with lus origin. It wi
i much for Massachusetts to boast th
! one of hersons had been appointe
jins jailor; and it was becoming sue
a jailor to oppress helpless wornt
j and children. * - <

WASHINGTON, D. C., Jniie 22, 'GO. !
To THE PR?SIDENT: Tho Secretary j j
of State, to whom was referred the I
concurrent resolution of the two
houses of Congress, of tho 18th inst.,
in the following words: "That the ,
President of the United States be '
requested to transmit forthwith, to !
the'Executives of the several States .
of the United States, copies of the J
article of amendment proposed by
Congress to the State Legislatures to ,
amend the Constitution of tho Un;ted j
States, passed Juno 13,1866, resj oct- ?
ing citizenship, the basis of repre- j
sen ta ti on, disqualification for office, j
and validity of tho public debt of the ,
United States; and to the end that j:
the said States may proceed to act ! .
upon the said article of amendment, j
and that he request the Executive of
eaoh State that may ratify said amend- : ?
mont, to transmit to the Socretary of :

tion of the two houses of Congress,
which was thereupon received by the ;
Secretary of State and deposited
among the rolls of the Department,
a copy of which is hereunto annexed. !
Thereupon the Secretary of State, on 1
the 16th inst., in conformity with the
proceeding which was adopted by !
him in 1865, in regard to the then j
proposed, and afterwards adopted,

WASHINGTON, Juno 16, 1S6C. j
To his Excella va j theOovemer of the]
State of-.
SIR: I have the honor to transmit
au attested copy of a resolution of j
C-ongress, proposing to the Legisla?
tures of the several States a fourteenth
article to the Constitution of tho
United States. Tho decisions of the
aeveral Legislatures upon the subject
are required by law to be be commu?

The accompanying paper i i tho ?
certificate of a true copy of the con- j
current resolution proposing an j
amendment to the Constitution.
In relation as to how tho message \
was received, the Washington corres
pondent of the New Vork H'c/?/j
says : j
The special message of the Pre?
sident to Congress, to-day, on tho
reconstruction amendment, was re?
ceived with great surprise, and caused
a considerable flutter in the House.
Hi? views as to the course of Congi'ess
in not submitting tho amendment to !
him for his approval, and his terse
expression on the way tho great ques?
tion of representation has been treated
by tho law-njaking powor, to say
nothing of his manifest intimations
of tho unconstitutionality of the pro?
posed amendment, will not go far, in
tho opinion of tho radicals, to heal
tho breach between the President and
Congress, notwithstanding ?di Mr. j
Raymond's glib talk about a "reeon- I
eilintion." "Bayonets next," said al
leading radical, after thc reading of [
the message was finished.
The correspondent of the News
says:
?Che President fired off ono of his !
big guns, to-day. His message to j
Congress, 'giving his reason for di- j
reefing Mr. Seward to transmit the '
constitutional amendment to the Go- !
vernors of the respective States, was 1
entirely unexpected by the radien 's. I
who are greatly worried by it. e
President's action in this matter is j
regarded by his friends hero sus a.
master-piece of statesmanship, and
as tho only proper course to be taken
under the circumstances. Tho mes?
sage is intendod to bc an emphatic
condemnation of tho amendment, and
it wUl bo so understood everywhere.
Senator Cowan, a few days ago, in
a. speech in the United States Senate,
gave this definition of loyalty, which :
is complete: "Loyalty means obedi?
ence to the Constitution and laws."'

The marriage of Miss Sarah Jones, "J
a New England school-marm, in Mo?
bile, to a wealthy nigger named
Samuel Jackson, will undoubtedly j
have a stimulating effect upon the ,
New England school-marm element. I
At the present moment, Mrs. Sarah 1
Jones Jackson is probably the object
of tho great envy of all, or nearly all, '
thc spinsters East of the Green Moun?
tains. The desire for position South
as school-marms will at once rise to
fever heat.
As for tho general public, wo think
it will be undecided as t<> whether
Jackson is moro to bo pitied for get?
ting the school-marm than thesehool
tnarm is to bo congratulated in get?
ting tho darkey. There is no doubt
that she has done well; but how is it ; '
