Mr.. EDITOR: Was it o wag, who had
not his face washed for a week, who in?
serted tho paragraph iu Sunday's PHCB
NIX, relativo to Germans being drunk
on Inger; or was it a mau who despises
lager, because he loves old Bourbon
whiskey better? Atony rate, it has been a
wonder to the writer, that Americuu
journals have, with few exceptions, taken
sides with tho French in the ingoing
struggle. What does this mean? Do
thoy feel moro sympathy forthat powor,
because it is on the brink of rniu? Or
do they hopo that the God of Battles
may turn the scales of victory and let
the "Datch" bo beaten?
We, at uny rate, should kuow that tho
Gorman element in the United States is
a respectable class, and as such claims
respectable treatment. Many may aud
certainly do laugh, if they hear a "sot,"
bedizzeued with "old rye," makiug fuu
aud splurging his jokes about lager,
saur kraut aud Limburger choese, and
about all tho Dutch, aud bringing up
eulogies for the Frenoh, whom said "be?
dizzeued" individual does not know uor
cares to know, aud of whom ho only
kuows that thoy make fino kid gloves,
eat frogs aud drink sometimes cham
pague. Tho samo bedizzened individual
would champion any race us soon, if one
of them would treat him to a glass of
I Bourbon, uomatterhow meau; and really
wo believe, if the Dutch would prefer
"Bourbon" to lager, this wag would not
be so bitter. Poor fellow, he does not
kuow that the real Dutch drink lager
very sparingly, but apply themselves to
better occupations, as may be seeu al?
ready by the results achieved in this
war. German intelligence, prowess and
valor hus repelled thc aggressions of tho
most powerful nation of tho European
continent. German science has shown
itself to bo the most superior in tho
world, iu warfare as well as iu peaceful
pursuits. This is au established fact,
and with this, Mr. Editor, the Germnus
wdio live peacefully here iu foroigu lauds,
aud who are satisfied that iu their ob?
scure stations, they do as much for the
general good as any good citizen eau;
they do not desire to have their natiou
made synonym wdth lager, saur kraut
and pretzel. Mr. Rauchinella may do it,
and we laugh; but a decent journal, like
yours, should say something for the
Dutch sometimes; not always talk for
old Bourbon aud tho frog. Have uot

INVESTMENTS IN CONFEDERATE BONDS.
Thc Raleigh (N. C.) Standard says:
We leam that the decision, of Chief
Justice Chase in a case lately depending
before him (Head and others r.s. Tolly,
administrator,) touching investments
made by administrators, guardiaus, etc.,
iu bonds of the late Confederate States,
was that where an administrator pur?
chased such securities directly from the
insurgent government, though one of
its officers, with thc funds of his bene?
ficiary, he must be held responsible for
the amount so invested. Such a trans?
action, directly furnishing money to the
insurgents to carry on tho war agaiust
the United States, could not be recog?
nized by the courts of the United States.
Tho Chief Justice intimated no opi?
nion as to what would be the law in case
a person acliug iu a fiduciary capacity
invested trust funds bona fide iu Con?
federate securities, purchased, not from
the Confederate Government, but in
open market, without auy intent to aid
Wo make this explanation because tho
simple aunounccment of thc decision of
Chief Justice Chase, iu tho case of Head
vs. Tally, administrator, might causo the
souls of administrators, etc., actiug as
such during the late war, to quako with
Congressman Butler, of Tennessee,
bas some hard charges to answer: first,
forgery, by which he absorbed other
people's pensions; second, robbing the
mails, by which tho pensioners received
uo satisfaction from tho department as
to why their pensions were not paid,
and third, perjury, iu taking the iron?
clad oath to practice before the Court of
Claims, when, at a subsequent date, au

cessary iu his case, beforo he could tako

Tho Fort Smith (Ark.) Herald, says:
"If all tho facts were known, and the
time approaches when they will bo, wo
would not bo at all surprised to know
that ono Mr. Pemberton had about as
much to do with tho campaign and cap?
ture of Vicksburg, as any other man; and
that the main planning for its capturo
was done by, through, nr.d with him;
aud if tho officers, who had tho paroles
for Vicksburg prisoners printed weeks
before tho capture, and the dato, July 4,
1863, printed in them, could bo heard
from, it would bo very likely to bo made
to appear that Mr. Pomberton's planning
and Federal gold had moro to do with
the final rosult of that campaign than all
of Mr. Graut's planning, or tho planning
of the other General referred to. How?
ever, time and tho future will reveal all
this. Perfidy of any enormity never did
