LONDON, August ll.-Parliament WUB
prorogued at 2 o'clock yesterday after?
noon. Shortly before that hour the
members of the House of Gommons
were summoned to the Chamber of the
Peers, where the speech of the Queen,
who was not present, was read by royal
commission. It is as follows:
MY LOUDS AND GENTLEMEN: The time
has ooma when you may properly relin?
quish the performaooe of your arduous
dutioa for a term of repose which has
been honorably earned by your devoted
assiduity. I rejoice to inform you that
the controversy whioh had arisen be?
tween my Government and the United
States in oonsequehce of the presenta?
tion of Amorioaa claims for indirect da?
mages under the treaty of Washington,
* was composed by the spontaneous de?
claration of the arbitrators entirely con?
sistent with the views I presented to yon
at the opening of the session. In con?
sonance with your action on the part of
this kingdom, the Parliament of Cauada
has passed all Acts neoessary to give ef?
fect to the treaty within the Dominion.
All arrangements contemplated by that
instrument are, therefore, now in pro?
gress, and I reflect, with satisfaction,
that the subjects with which it dealt no
longer offer any impediment to perfect
concord between two kindred nations.
Since I addressed you at the com- '
m on oe ment of the eeBsioc, I have re?
ceived from France a formal notice
whioh would bring to an end the oom-11
merojal treaty of 1660. That Govern- j 1
ment, however, has indicated a desire
for farther communications. In any i
correspondence on the subject, I shall be t
guided by an earnest desire to suoure at- i
toutiou to the jost olainiB of my subjects, ?
by the friendly feelings whioh have BO
long united the two countries, and by 11
my conviction of the moral as well as 1J
material benefits derived by suoh from
fr?e intercourse between them. I had
great satisfaction in concluding with
Germany a treaty in conformity with I
the provisions of the Act of 1870 of fu- 1
gi ti ve oriminals. I am engaged in form- 1
ing similar arrangements with other
powers. My Government has taken c
steps intended to pave the way for deal- I
ing more effectually with the slave trade a
ou the East coast of Africa. I have a
cheerfully given my assent to an Act of a
the Legislature of Cape Colony for the r
establishment in that colony of what ia I
now generally a known and responsible
My acknowledgments are due to you 11
for the ample provision which yon have
made for the various oxigeuoies of the
public servioa Although the wants and
expectations of the oountry seem to out- I
strip every effort of Parliament in its c
career of legislative improvement, I no- I
tice with satisfaction the main additions
whioh yon have boen able to make during I i
tho present year to our laws. The Aot [ 1
in reference to outrages of natives in the
islands of th?* Pacific Ocean is well do-1 ii
signed, by providing for more easy and
effeotd?l prevention and punishment of
thia pjSences whioh it is aimed to prevent,
in order to promote the ends of humani?
ty and the honor of the Empire. The
Act for localizing the army, while it
strengthens the defensive ' system of the
country, will lend indispensable aid in ) b
effecting those important reforms which
bav? been approved by Parliament. The
Act Which establishes the ballot will
assist to secure alike the independence
of~ the voter and the tranquillity and
parity ot the elections for members of
Parliament. Although yon have been
nuable daring the present session to ma
tare any measures directed against cor?
rupt practices in the choice of members
of the Hones of Commons, I notice with
pleasure that the cognate Bubjeot of mu?
nicipal eleotions has had your attention,
and that you have presented to me a law
whioh is well calculated to check exist?
ing evils, and whioh provides a tribunal
for trying the validity of such elections
By the Soottish education Act you have
made provisions for the further extension
and greater efficiency of the training of
the young throughout Scotland, in ac
oordanoe with conscientious, and deep
rooted convictions of the people, and
with the principles of religious freedom
The Act for establishing a local board of
government for Ireland, modeled on the
English statute of 1871, supplies the
maohinery for giving effect io many use?
ful laws, and promises to extend within
that portion of tho kingdom the solid
benefits of popular looal institutions.
The measures for the amendment of the
Aot of uniformity, based npon careful
inquiry and a largo amount of asoer
tained consent, has, without offence or
shooks, introduced useful modifications
into the ancient system of divine wor?
ship, to whioh a large number of my
people are warmly attaohed. The Aot
for regulating the custody and manage
meat of the large sams held by the Court
of Chancery will relieve a numerous class
of suitors in that court from risks and
inoonvenienoieB to whioh they may have
heretofore been more or less exposed,
and likewise tend to increase the statis?
tics of oar finances. I am able to speak
favorably both of the tranquillity ana the
growing prospects of Ireland. The reve?
nue is in a flourishing condition. While
I cordially congratulate yon on the acti?
vity of trado and industry, I hope it will
be borne in mind that periods of unusu?
ally rapid changea in prices of commo?
dities and the prioo of labor are likewise
periods which more than ever call for the
exercise of moderation and forethought.
In bidding you farewell, I ask you to
join me in acknowledging the abundant
merries of Almighty God and imploring

SECRET ARCHIVES'-OUTRAGES DURING
THE WAR.-A correspondent of tbe Rich
mood Dispatch au vs:
Io several of your receut issues, you
have noticed ut some length the publica?
tion at the bands of tbe United States
Government of what purport to be the
secret archives of the late Confederate
Government. The authenticity of these
pupers is denied; and it is asserted that
they have been trumped up for use in
the Presidential oampuigu; yet, eveu if
they are authentic, I would ask if this
proceeding has precedent in the history
of nations? I would like to kuow oven
one reason in favor of the decency or
fairness of it. The United States Go?
vernment, as the administrator of her
dead enemy's estate, makes public such
portious of these secret papers aB she
deems fit to suit her attempted purpose
of blackening the memory of that enemy.
With a mock-virtuous indignation she
says, "See what a wicked, black-hearted
people we had to fight; see their diaboli?
cal plans for the burning and sacking of
our defenceless cities." In tho name of j
all houor, fairness and justice, will she
dare to show her own secret archives?
Will any nation on earth do it? Ought
any Government to take this dishonora?
ble advantage of another, even though it
befallen? Will the United States Go?
vernment dare to put her secret archives
side by side with these of her late foe?
Autheutic or not, no act of the Confe?
derate Government, or of any o? RB
agents, proves the authenticity of these 1
papers. Unpublished or not, the fires
of Columbia, S. C., and from the Valley
of Virginia throw a damning light into
tho secret chamber at Washington.
The moan of the widow turned out of
her buruing home in the bitterness of
wiuter to die, the sob of the starving
orphan, re-echoed from Heaven, tell the
story o? what was done. Is it necessary
to show her papers that wu may know
what was ordered? Wore the men who
perpetrated these outrages punished for
disobedience of orders or rewarded the
highest positious io the United States
?nay? Who is Commander-in-Chief?
Who Lieuteuaut-General of Cavalry?
Who once ordered tho total destruction
?f everythiug in the Valley of Virgiuia,
io that eveu the birds of the air could
uot hud sustenance in the desolated
land? Was it an officer who found no
favor with the Government or people, or
is he now President of the Uuitod States?
Will the Government dare, I say, to
ihow her secret orders, and thus prove
that the infamous papers found ou the
body of Ulric Dahlgreu were excep?
tional; that they were given in the heat
>f the momeut, aud that she afterwards
repented of and was horrified at them?

A NEGRO FIEND LYNCHED.-A negro
lamed John Mitchell, confined in jail at
Covington, Tennessee, for attempting to
mtrage a young lady and nearly killing
tor in the attempt, was taken from the
ail last Thursday night by a party of
titizeus, who overpowered the jailer,
iftor a desperate resistance, and shot
Mitchell. He was a desperate character,
laving killed two men within the past
rear and succeeded in eluding the officers
lutil his last outrage.

RIOT IN FAYETTEVILLE.-Advices from
Fayetteville, by the boats Tuesday night,
give us information of quite a riot on the
part of the Radicals, which occurred
there about 12 o'clock Monday- night
last. This was the occasion of the Cald?
well jollification demonstration. There
was quite a large procession, there being
about 1,000 negroes from the country in
town for the occasion. lu moving
through the streets the processionists
became quite exoited by bad whiskey,
and, as a consequence, were violont?y
turbulent. They amused themselves
while passing throngh the streets by
throwing stones into the residences of
citizens. This was kept up without
check until when they were in the neigh?
borhood of what is known as the "half?
way bridge," a citizen becoming exaspe?
rated by reason of stones thrown into bis
bouse, went to his front door and fired
into the crowd. This was the signal for
a general lawlessness on the part of the
shrieking, drunken rabble, who bad
already made the night hideous by their
yells aud depredations. They returned
the fire, and continued iu violent disor?
der for some time. During the riot a
white man, by the name of Black, had
his head cut open with a stave; another
white man was shot in tho leg, aud a Mr.
Powell had his shoe torn off by a pistol
ball. There were but few white citizens
out at that hoar, but these few, in de?
fending themselves, fired back into the
crowd, and several negroes were wound?
ed. No one, however, was killed. But
for tho late hour, and the fact that most
of the white oitizens had retired, the
bloodshed would have been greater.
Before the riot terminated, the ne?
groes tore down the fences around the
residences of Dr. S. J. Hinsdale and
Maj. J. C. McBae, which were near the
scene of the outbreak. That same night
they went to the stables of Capt. W. C.
Troy, the Senator from Cumberland and
Harnett, took his horses oat and were
about to burn the stables, but were per?
suaded from accomplishing their design
by one John Reilly, the Radical Auditor
When our informant left Fayetteville,
(early the next morning,) the negroes
were going about the streets with clubs
in their hands. More trouble was ap?
prehended, and it is anticipated that it
will end disastrously to the rioters if the
litizens are once thoroughly aroused.

MCCORMICK'S GIFT TO THE WASHINGTON
fcND LEE COLLEGE.-Mr. Leander J. Mc?
cormick, of Chicago, of the firm of C.
E. MoCormick & brother, of reaping
naokine celebrity, is about to present
the Washington and Lee College, of
[lexington, Ya., amagnificeut telescope,
which is to be larger than any other in

Mr. McCormick also proposes to mount

nstrument, and to provide a variety of
ither instruments accessary for the BUO
?essful use of so large a telescope. He
tlso proposes to build an observatory for
hese instruments at Lexington, to be
?quipped in the same manner as the
Washington Observatory. When all
hese purposes are carried out, Mr. Mc?
cormick's native State and County will
lossess the best equipped observatory iu

iioua character on Saturday, the 20th
nst. Discharged by them, he took the
Sumter Road. At Ben. Wade's plaoe,
ie entered the premises, and helped
limself to two water-melons, in presence
>f Mrs. Wade, threatening her with vio
ence, if she gave the alarm. Thence
io went to another house, and asked for
iread, saying he was perishing. He
nade a similar application at Mr.
.thames'. That night, he came to the
louse of S. Richardson, on Captain
.milliard's place, and asked for lodgings
in account of illness and inability to
ravel. He was kindly cared for, but
;row worse from day to day, and finally
lied on Monday, 5th instant.
DEATH'S DOINGS.-A week ago, we
loticed that five persons had died io the
amily of Mr. Kurtz, Juniata County,
vit hm a brief period, and now we learn
hat another momber has deceased,
uaking six in four dayo. Tho same
amily lost five members by death before
his visitation of fearful fatality. In
Northampton County, Paul Graver, wife
ind six children died this year within
wo months.-Harrisburg (Pa.) Patriot.
A singular accident lately occurred in
Germany. A basket-maker had a quan
ity of willow switches stowed away in a
ellar. Going down to fetch some, his
emaining away too long seemed strange,
,nd another person went to look for him.
LII?S man did not retara either, and two
ithers went down. All four were killed

CAUL SCHURZ AND THE GERMANS-How
TO FILL THE BLOODY CHABM.-Senator
Schurz delivered an able address, Satur?
day night, to tho Germans in Chicago,
the maBs of the German population be?
ing present. He reviewed tbe political
situation, Bhowed that the mission of
the Grant party was ended, stigmatized
its corruptions, ita violations of law, and
its unjust polioy towards the South, and
maintained that the Liberal party was
uow the only true party of national re?
form and regeneration. In referring to
the South, he said:
"If it is necessary to fill the bloody
chasm, as Mr. Boutwell said, before
peace cnn bo restored, let us throw the
Grant party into it, [great applause, j
with the thieves and those who have
violated the Constitution and the laws,
with those who have violated their offi?
cial oaths and prostituted their office to
personal ends, with those who have beld
the highest offices in the Govern meut in
order to secure their personal welfare.
What can induce us to reject the band
extended by the Southern people?
Should we not take it and be glad? I
do not deny that there have been Ka
I Klux in the South within the past live
j years, but what is alleged of them now
is not true. What was done years ago
should not be urged against them DOW.
1 The cry against them should cease. If
, any Ku Klux did exist, they would cease
1 the moment an honest Government was
given to the South. The reasonB the
Grant men urge why we should sustain
the Administration are about these: Let
oorruption alone-it is of no conse?
quence; let us reject these proffers of the
South-they are not dictated by loyalty;
all we ask is, that you give UB further
control of the Government; the country
In conclusion, the Senator addressed
himself particularly to his audience as
Germans. He said they had come to
this country to enjoy the privileges of
personal liberty, and they would never
submit to become the willing and base
instruments of centralization. His heart
was gladdened by the position his fellow
countrymen had always retained. In
the war of the rebellion they had fought
side by side with their native-born breth?
ren to preserve the Union, and now they
again stood in the front of the phalanx
that sought to secure the blessings which
the bloody war had vouchsafed. They
were the eons of freedom, and would not
become the willing tools of any despot,
no matter what pretext was alleged to
hold them in bondage.
We learn that another Greeley club
was formed in the Waxhaw settlement
last week, composed of eighteen colored
men. These men signed a written pledge
that they never would vote for a Radical
Republican again.-Lancaster Ledger.
SOCIAL PROORESS.-There is a hotel
for stylish colored people at Long
Branch. It is called Delmonico'e, and
is filled by the elite of the brunette raoe.
