Thc Democratic Central Commit?
tee of Indiana have come to ihe con?
clusion-which they proclaim to the
world in a formal address-that au
"overwhelming majority"" of the peo?

of thc President's policy of restora?

but forty-three per cent, of the peo?

Dispatch, that the Indiana Democrats
aro not mistaken in their facts. We
believe, also, that nine-tenths of the
people of Ireland, Poland, Huugary
and Candia are governed by rulers
whom they detest. Bat, then, where's
the remedy? Every movement of the
radicals shows- that they are alHictcd
wiith judicial blindness, and gives
promise of a better day for the South.
At present, we derive but little con?
solation from the figures and calcula?
tions of thc Indiana Committee. Like
all other oppressed people, we must
bide our time, and uso all our intel?
lect and physical powers to restore
thc Constitution and the Union tc

We learn from thc New York Work.
that Wendell Phillips is out in las:
week's Anti-Sla'cerij Standard in favo]
of Fred Douglas as United State:
Senator in place of thc Hon. Ira Har
ress. Phillips objects to Greeley 01:
account of his "notorious wcaknes:
and cowardice," and his "peri?dica
attack of the old Whig disease o
Congressmen."' Horace Conkliuj
might do, but he has the misfortun
to bc a white man; so Phillips wil
none of him. Thc choice of the grea
radical leader is thus indicated :
"We know a gentleman, we'
known also in political circles, whos

more than any mau in thc State t

The twaddle indulged in by tl

day, "in- had soon Senators here w)
did not understand the difference!
tween a bill of attainder and an ;
tainder for treason; who did n
understand what was an ex post fa

stood to maui tain that the phrase

for treason," means ''bill of attai

Ar/n BIGHT.-At the recent loi
election in Boston, the negroes
voted the Democratic ticket. Tl
was because they found the radie
would not give them a chance at t
spoils. The' usual radical major:
was cut down some 900, and t
Democrats gained largely in t
lower wards. The Boston negr<
have found out what the rest of \
African race will discover in ge
time-that the Democrats ale, af
all, their best friends.
It is contemplated to erect a h
pital in the city of New Orleans

The bill also provides for heavy
penalties to be imposed upon any
person who shall refuse to accept the
vote of any sueh qualified voter, or
j who shall, in any way, interfere with
or interrupt such voters in the exer?
cise of their franchise. This is a fore?
taste of what is in store for the South?
ern States, if Thad. Stevens and his
party be not overwhelmed by popular
opinion, or by a master-stroke of
Executive policy and wisdom. The
whole interests of the country, North
and South, demand restoration and
peace, and this can only be accom?
plished by the destruction of that j
faction, which appears to have no
other object than the utter subversion
of the Government and the oblitera?
tion of the Constitution, which its
members swore to' "maintain and

Tlif S*'?.lenient of Marie, OI? M I? ic !?
Siirratt wa* Arrested.
The foreign news by" the cable,
given yesterday, stated that the man
who gave the information which led
to the arrest of Surratt is a French
Canadian named St. Marie. He was
formerly a Union soldier, and after?
wards served in the Pupal Zonave3.
Both he and Surratt, it is alleged,
we re in love willi the same lady in
Washington, and St. M%ie betrayed
Surratt through jealousy. The fol?
lowing is said to be the affidavit of
St. Marie, on which Surratt was first
arrested while serving as a Papal
Zouave. It will be seen the traitor
to his friend swears not only io all he
pretends to know, but. to what he be?
lieves and imagines. Ile also argues
a little :
"1 was living in Maryland, at a
small village called Ellangowan, or
Little Texas, about twenty-five or
thirty miles from Baltimore, where I
was engaged as teacher for a period
of about five months. I then and
there got acquainted with Lewis J.
Weichman ami Johu H. Surratt, who
came to that locality to pay a visit to
the parish pi iest. At that first inter?
view a grca., deal was said about the
war and slavery, the sentiments ex?
pressed by these two individuals be?
ing more than secessionist. In the
course of the conversation, I remem?
ber Surratt to have said that Presi?
dent Lincoln would certainly pay for
ail the men that were slain during
the war. About a month after I re?
moved to Washington, at the instiga?
tion of Weichman, and got a situa?
tion as tutor-, where he was
himself engaged. Surratt visited us
weekly, and lie once offered to send
me South, but I declined. I did not
remain more than a month at Wash?
ington, not being able to agree with
Weichman, and enlisted in the army
of the North, as stated in my first
statement in writing to General King.
I have met Surratt in Italy, at a small
town called Velletri. He is now
known under the name of John Wat?
son. I recognized him before lu?
made himself known to me, and told
him privately. 'You arti John Surratt,
the person 1 have known in Mary?
land." Ile acknowledged he was, and
begged of me to keep the thing se?
cret. After some conversation we
spoke of the unfortunate afluir of the
assassination of President Lincoln,
and these were his words : 'Damn tin:
Yankees, they have killed my mother.
But I have done them as much harm
as I could. We have killed Lincoln,
the niggers' friend/ He then said,
speaking of his mother: 'Had it not
been for me and that coward, Weich?
man, my mother would bc living now.
lt was fear made him speak; had he
kept his tongue, there was no danger
for him. But if I ever return to
America and meet him elsewhere, I
shall kill him.' He then said he was
in the secret service of the South, and
Weichman, who was in some depart?
ment there used to steal copies of the
despatches and forward them to him
ami thence to Richmond. Sneaking
of the murder, he said they had acted
under the orders of men who are not
yet known, some of whom are still in
New York and -thers in London. I
I am aware that money is sent to him
yet from London. When I left Can?
ada, he said, I hud but little money,
but I had a letter for a party in Lon?
don. I was in disguise, with dyed
hair and false beard; that party sent
mo to a hotel, where he told me to
remain till I would hear from him;
after a few weeks he came and pro?
posed to me to go to Spain, but I de?
clined, and asked to go to Paris.'
Ho gave him seventy pounds, with a
letter of introduction to a party there,
who sent him here to Rome, where
he joined thc Zouaves. He says he
can get money in Home at any time.
I believe he is protected by the clergy,
and that the murder was the result of
a deep laid plot, not only against the
life of President Lincoln, but against
the existence of the republic, as we
are aware that priesthood and royally
are, aud always have been, opposed to
liberty. That such men as Surratt,
Booth, Weichman and others, should,
of their own accord, plan and execute
the infernal plot which resulted in the
death of President Lincoln, is impos?
sible. There are others behind the
curtain who have to make these
scoundrels act. I have also asked
him if he knew Jefferson Davis. He
said not, but that he had acted under
instructions of persons under his im?
mediate orders. Being asked if Jeff.
Davis had anything to do with the
assassination, he" said : T am not
going to tell you.' My impression is
that he brought the order from Rich?
mond, as he was in the habit of going
there weekly. He must have wis ed
the others to do it, for when the
event took place he told me he was
in New York, prepared to fly as soon
as tiie deed was done, tie says he
does not regret what has taken place,
and that he will visit New York i?? ,?.
year or two, as there is a heavy ship?
ping linn there who liad much to do
witii tlie South, and he is surprised
that they have not been suspected.
This is tile exact ?ru?h of what I know
about Surratt. .More I could not
learn, being afraid to awaken his sus?
picions, ami further I do not say."

A Fanciful Plot to Destroy Congress.^
The Cincinnati Commercial, of the

cular addressed to each of the radical
members of Congress, prior to leav?
ing their homes for Washington,
by a person in Chicago, named L. M.

only as an exhibition of folly and ex?

GENTLEMEN: I have recently come
into possession of information, to the
effect that a plot has been formed to
destroy the lives of a sufficient num?
ber o? Republicans to reduce them to
a minority in Congress. Railroad ac?
cidents, poisonings, &c, will be re
sorted to as the moans to accomplish
this result, and unless you are very
careful they will succeed. My advice
to each of you would be to start for
Washington two or three days before
the time announced, and go unob?
served, and keep a sharp lookout
after you get there, for still deeper
plots arc in store for your destruction,
and the overthrow of our Republican
Government. I have the winde se?
cret of their plottings, from the very
commencement, and will reveal it all
when the time arrives. Andrew
Johnson is acting true to his consti?
tuents, and has been playing the role
of a modern Judas, from 1861 all the
way down. There arc more traitors,
however, besides him, engaged in thc
present conspiracy. Tho business of
Gen. McClellan in Europe, for the
last two years, has been with the
Topo and other high dignitaries of
the Catholic Church, to form a coali?
tion between the Catholics and Demo?
crats, to re-instate thc Democratic
party in power. You will recollect
that a council of Catholic Bishops was
held in Baltimore a few weeks ago,
with closed doors, and their delibera?
tions conducted in Latin; and you
will also recollect that a very distin?
guished American citizen (being no
less a personage than tho President
of the United States) made a living
visit to Baltimore the last day this
council sat, and was in secret session
with them. This was barely mention?
ed by thc papers, without comment,
as nothing wrong was suspected; but
as I had then received a part of my
information. I well knew what "was
i in the wind." If Andrew tho First
(?) did not then and thcreput his sig?
nature to a document guaranteeing
the spiritual reign of the Pope upon
this continent as a consideration foi
their assistance in establishing and
perpetuating his temporal power,
then my information is of no ac?
I know whereof I speak, and know
that I am not deceived. I have at?

Bishop Lynch ona Visit to Mobile-, j
THE POPE'SSYMPATHIES FOB MB. DAVIS, i
AYe wore favored yesterday with a
visit from that distinguished and j
virtuous Prelate, Bishop Lynch, of I
South Carolina, who left Mobile last
evening for his Episcopal See, via
Tuscaloosa, where he will finally part i
from his brother, the Right Reverend j
Bishop of Mobile.
lu the course of hisinstructive and
interesting conversation, we heard |
from the lips of the venerable Prelate j
himself the particulars of his parting ,
interview with His Holiness, Pope
Pius IX, just about a year ugo, and 1
when it was feared that Bishop Lynch ?
would be persecuted on his return to !
his native State, under the ridiculous ?
charge of having visited Europe in i
the capacity of a private agent of the \
His Holiness, after expressing (as |
he had done before to the American i
Envoy, Mr. King,) his anxiety abouti
the future safety of the Bishop him- j
self, then broke out in his most touch
ing accents in behalf of His Excel- j
hmcy ex-President Jefferson Davis,
far whose exemption from persecu?
tion he said that he was constantly
offering up his prayers to tho Al?
mighty, and then conclut?ed with
these simple and touching words: "I
hope, they will do nothing UGLY to
him"-us if the imagination of the'
good old man could not realize any?
thing beyond "ugly" as threatening
thc: illustrious State prisoner.
How little could the Holy Father
dream of the bloody projects and
sanguinary designs of the radicals !
And thus, when the whole world,
and alas ! perhaps even the South,
seems to have forgotten the illustri?
ous leader of an unsuccessful but
(iver glorious revolution, when the
princes of the earth, who were
anxiously watching the capricious
turns of the wheels of fortune, ready
at the first favorable moment to ad?
mit as au equal amongst the rulers of
nations, the brilliant statesman whose
genius was counterbalancing the
armed millions of the North, when
those princes have not this day a
word of mercy to be spoken in his
behalf, it is the poor, persecuted
Bishop of Rome, threatened on every
side by tho vile hordes of European
radicals and perhaps on the eve of
bidding au eternal adieu to the Eter?
nal City, where St. Peter sealed with
his blood his holy apostolate-it is
that poor old man, one foot in exile
j and the other in the grave, who utters
J words of mercy for the fallen chief,
i who to-day, like Christ expiating the
I sins of man on the Calvary, is aton
I ing with his fast declining life for the
errors-no-the just aspirations of

FENIANS ON THE RAMPAGE.-A
meeting of tho Fenian leaders has
! been held in New York, at which cer
j tain plans to aid in the contemplated
I rising of Feniaus in Iralaud was dis
! cussed at considerable, length. The
J most important feature in the plan of
j assistance from this side of the water
j is, the contemplated seizure of cer
i tain European steamers, to convert
! them into privateers. It was sug
1 gested to get command of the Queen
; City, Baltimore and Scotia, belong
j ing respectively to tho National, In
I man and Cunard lines. This is pro
1 posed to be accomplished by intro?
ducing the right men among the
crews, sufficient inducements being
I offered to thercrews which came over
to leave the vessels, in order that
their places may be supplied by pick?
ed men from the Fenian organization.
In conjunction with this part of the
plan, all available passages on board
the steamers are to betaken for mem?
bers of tho Order, and all tho avail?
able room allowed for freight to be
used for arms and ammunition, to
be introduced as the personal bag?
gage of passengers. In order to pre?
vent as far as possible the effusion of
blood, it is proposed to seize the
vessels at night, when tho opposition
of the officers would likely be less ef?
When once under the control of
tho Fenians, the vessels can easily be
transformed into privateers, and
would be exceedingly formidable,
being swift, wcli provisioned and
well supplied with arm.-. In case it
is found impossible to make reprisals,
the vessels arc to steam into port,
under English colors, and disembark
the passengers, with directions to join
different circles now in progress in
England and Ireland.
Such isa brief outline of this daring
movement. As to its ultimate con?
summation, time alone can show.
