The Montgomery Advertiser pub?
lishes tho following letter from. Mr;
Thad. Stevens to a citizen of that
LANCASTER, May 21, 1867.
DEAB Sm: We do not confiscate
loyal men, nor rebels, unless they aro
rich; few men suffer-not enough, I
fear; some innocent man will, I fear.
This is a curious document-indi?
cative rather of tho writer's fixed
purpose to push his confiscation pro?
jects than of any clear idea as to the
mode of carrying it into effect. If
Southern property is to be confis?
cated, it must be by law; how can a
law, which must be equal iu its ope?
ration, distinguish between the rich
and the poor? Mr. Stevens and Gen.
Butler aro determined to build up a
Southern party called Republican,
on the sohemo of confiscation. They
expect to get by that bribe the whole
negro vote and enough of tho white
vote to control tho Southern States,
and this calculation is not so wild as
it may at firs!; sight seem. But if thc
Republican party allow these men to
fasten confiscation upon them ns a |
party measure, they will lose more |
electoral votes by it in the North j
than thoy can possibly gain at the
South. The project meets no sort of
favor with the Republican press gen?
erally, and wo presume it will be
promptly squelched at the next meet?
ing of Congress.-Nine York Times.
Ax END or WARS.-A ohemist, of
Marseilles, professes to have invented
a new preparation of Greek lire,
which, unless the description is out?
rageously exaggerated, will certainly
put au end to all war. With this ter?
rible agent of destruction, the in?
ventor claims that he could envelop
in Hames au army of 100,000 men,
from a distance of 1,000 yards, with?
in less than five minutes. In a naval
battle, he could run into tho enemy,
and, in lifteeu seconds, cover his
decks with a torrent of flame, which
would burn the rigging, penetrate tho
hatchways, and instantaneously stifle
all tho crew. Tho invention seems
to have one little drawback, how?
ever, which may prevent its geueral
introduction; for, ns the chemist
himself naively admits, "neither vic?
tors nor vanquished would return
from the field of battle" on which
this terrible fire was used. In fact,
as both armies would be destroyed,
it would puzzle historians to decide
which was the victor and which the

in the Supreme Court here, a civil
case was on trial. The suit was im?
portant, thc lawyers labored, and a
full day was occupied. The jury were
faithful and attentive, aud one Prus?
sian juryman, of Bismarokian face,
was observed to be specially sagacious
and interested. At length, tho cuso
being argued, the jury retired, but
soon sent back the message that one
of their number could not speak a
wo?! of English, much less under?
stand one. It was the intelligent
juryman, who had sat with tho rapt
expression of fidelity and interest all
through the day, who had been the
special object to which the counsel on
both sides addressed their pleas, and
who only revealed his misfortune
when, being asked for his opinion in
the jury-room, he confessed he didn't

An enormous gun, for the Chilian
Government, passed through Newark,
N. J., recently. It was cast at Fort
Pitt Foundry, Pittsburg, weighs 116,
000 pounds, or fifty-eight tons, is
tweiity feet six inches long, five feet
four inches in diameter of breech,
and has a bore of twenty inches. 100
projectiles, weighing 1,000 pounds
each, accompanied tho gun. Fonr
fifteen-inch guns and others of less
calibre, from tho samo foundry, have
already been shipped for Chili.
Some of tho Alabama freedmen
think the Governor can do almost
anything. A few days ago, one of
them walked into the Executive
Chamber and asked Governor Patton
to grant him a divorce. He said that
his wife had moved to Montgomery,
and hired herself out at ??8 per
month, and he couldn't be coming up
here every week, and, besides, he
could get another woman for a wife
in this neighborhood.
A foreign journal says that Sadowa

THE NEXT CENSUS.-The corres- J
pondent of tho New York Tribune I
"The Bureau of Statistics is mai: lug
preparations to take tho census of
1870 through the Internal Revenue
organization. Director Delmar has
bean superintending a series of sta?
tistical exeroise drills, the results of
ono of which afford remarkable proof
of tho thorough organization of the
various bureaus of tho Treasury De?
partment. He hus taken a census of
the numbers of the entire population
of the country already, and that, too,
without any expense whatever, ex?
cept for stationery. Tho census was
quietly but thoroughly taken during
six weeks of lost November and De?
cember, and is, ia most cases, tho re?
sult of actual count in tho revenue
districts. The details will uot be
furnished to tho public until they
have undergone caroful revision and
arrangement. The returns from a
few of the romote mountain districts
of the country aro tho only ones not
deemed satisfactory. The present
census shows the total population of
thc thirty-seven States iu November
and December Inst to have been
31,100,255, and of the States and Ter?
ritories taken together, 31,503,882.
In most of the Southern States, t here
has been a decrease of population.
In the Eastern States, a small in?
crease, and, with the Western States,
a large increase. Tho results are
supported iu every instance by the
State census of 18G5 so far, and,
taken in comparison with the census
of 1800, is as follows: Thirty-seven
States, a few of which were thou Ter?
ritories, numbered 31,218,021 inhabi?
tants, and the total States and Terri- j
tories, 31,-143,321. The total inero
mout since 18G0 has, therefore, been
3,002,501, which, in view of the late
extended conflict, t demonstrates the
extraordinary recuperative powers of
the country. The population of tho
District of Columbia is given at 118,
807, with a majority of several thou?
sand females over males."
SITICA.-A writer in a Northern
paper is making out Sitka a sort of
paradise. He informs the public that
a gentleman who long resided there
never saw ice thick enough to skate
on. "The winter is quite mild, and i
tlie summer agreeable." That is a ;
most delightful sentence. Everyman
who reads, it wishes ho were iu Sitka.
But when ho adds, "Splendid pota?
toes are grown in all tho valleys, and
the grain crops are magnificent ;
grazing is rich and long-continued,
and nothing is wanting for successful
farming," we feel altogether over- i
come. Sitka must bo a happy place, j
with large potatoes and fine grazing.
Imagine tho potatoes smoking from
tho kettle, throwing oft" their jackets,
i and buttered with the rich butter
from tho fine cows grazing on thc
'rich grass! Nothing could be finer |
in anticipation-nothing superior in
realization. Tho Government must
have made a great bargain in Sitka.
Nevertheless, let us not run mad on
? thc potatoes and butter, and cool
! summer and warm winter; and until
we hear more authentic news, sit
quietly where we are, and let Sitka
get on awhile of itself. Our Northern
friends will soon find out all about it.

THE FENIAN SWINDLE.-We agree
fully with the following from the New
*?t is impossible for any one who
knows anything of Irish character,
not to feel the greatest respect for
many of its traits; but it is equally
impossible not to feel some degree cf
contempt, and a much higher degree
of pity, for its exhaustless credulity.
It is inexpressibly sad to see with
what systematic nod unvarying sim?
plicity tho great mass of tho Irish
people permit themselves to be duped
out of their earnings, their sympathy,
their liberty and their lives, by a
small clique of unprincipled knaves,
long after the real character of their
schemes has been made perfectly
apparent to overy man of common
sense. The Fenian swindle offers
the latest and most glaring illustra
tiou of this weakness. After robbing
the Irish of millions of their hard
earnings, plunging scores of them
into dungeons and their families into
misery, bringing disaster and dis?
grace upon hundreds and thousands
of their dupes, thu leaders of this
movement continue with shameless
impudence to levy contributions in
the name of Irish freedom, upon the
great body of their countrymen for
their own selfish indulgence.
One of the Head Centres, Ste?
phens, has been living for some
mouths in Paris, in indolence and
luxury, and now it is announced by
tho leading political organ of the
movement that the other Head
Centre, "President Roberts," has
gone abroad, as tho ambassador of
tho Brotherhood, to "organize alli?
ances*' with Mazzini and other help?
less Bed Republicans of the conti?
nent. Funds are, of course, forth?
coming from the exhaustions treasury
of Irish liberality, being drawn with
remorseless cruelty from the earnings
of Irish servant girls and day labor?
ers, to support this mythical and
ridiculous mission. This is probably
the last we shall hear of "President
Roberts," ns an active agent of Irish
freedom. He will settle down in
Paris by the side of his illustrious
predecessor, t'other Head Centre.
About 14,000 women and children
