LETTER FROM EMERSON ETHEBIDGE.
' ms opinion or military covbts.
The Terre Haute (Ind.) Journal prints the fol
lowing extract from a letter from Emerson Ethe
ridge to a gentleman in that city
Drcsdis, Tbxs., Oct. 24, 1805.
Tour very interesting letter of the 29th ult- was
received the day I started to Columbus to witness
the last act of the farce which ongiuated last sum
mer. Tne vulgar ana maugoant: maicontenu wno
caused my rrrest and detention at Columbus for
seven treeks,, las summer, .had egiui to eel the
load of liuamy tniey nad incnrret' something
must nte done. Mhatcould btdone kruta atsortlo
a militarv commission oue of those patented in
ventions in modern jurisprudence which are "or
ganized to -convict and ordered rb try." Accord
ingly grave and lying charges were preferred and
the pertonnel of the tribunal carefully selected.
The President of the commission was one of those
who, under the Butler rtgime, had hanged Mum
ford in New Orleans. Nothing more was supposed
to be wanting. But the world had begun to can
vass the infalibility of the Kirkes and Jeffreys of
the 19tb centurv. Proof must be had. In my
case delay had rendered it indispensable, lint not
one of the secret assassins who had caused my ar
rest not one or those who had furnished the rz
parte . affidavit upon', which ' the onlf material
charges and specineauons were oasea couia oe
forced to appear. They dared not submit them.
selves to the scrutiny or trulli cr conlront tne gR7.e
of those who knew them. Conseqjcntly the Gov
ernment was compelled to summon intelligent and
respectable men who were present at the public
meetings where the alleged mines were said io
have been committed.- I did not summon a single
witness: I submitted no proof in my defense; I
did not employ counsel, nor did I argue the case.
When the Government closed the case I was done.
The remit is that I am compli-trlr vindicated and
mv enemies covered with itminiv, if indeed such
creatures could find ia "the loweft depths a lower
deep." The members of the .court were conspicu
ous for thoir gentlemanly boaring,:and 4hey can
didly confessed their ignorance of the law, by the
rules and principles or which Ibev rrankiy proiesseo
not to be governed. I know enough of military
commissions to regard every intelligent man who
defends their necessity or jurisdiction a more dan
gerous than any culprit who has ever been mur
dered by their judicial mockeries. Purely your
Northern people love servility: else wny iney,
or so many of them, glorify the worst instruments
of cruel despotism, and hail with joy the most
glaring usurpations? i Will not some shrewd Yan
kee speedily startle the .world with an improved
thumb screw ? What a pity that Rnvaillac had
not lived until now 1 ' la this aga the; Dry. Tortu.
gas, with its improved ; instruments, would have
extorted real names for accomplices who bad no
real existence, lint enough of this I i I have read
your letter to many intelligent friends. Such
words or sympathy lrom a source are more man
grateful at this time.
rxTiTiox to Secretaby St wabd. A petition is
in circulation iu Boston, addressed to Secretary
Seward, and requesting him to make no further
demand upon the Britirh Government for compen
sation for the depredations committed upon our
commerce by the' Alabama and other British1 Cruis
ers. The petition : lelt forth 'that 'it would be an
injury to this country to weaken, for the sake of a
few millions of dollars involved in the claims of
onr citizens, the prospective value of the prece
dents thus set hy the British Government It
ruture tiy the post, tlw time caanot be Ir distant
when the British Government will be a belligerent,
und whether against Jiussia, r ranee, or ttriunl, or
against its Indian subjects, the heroic Sepoys, or
its oppressed' Irish provinces, its next war, when
we are at peace, will crive us the same opportunity
in principle, and an hundred times greater in de
gree, which her merchants, mechanics, and ship
builders have baur to preht by our, misfortunes,
While tier commerce equals our in tonnage, the
value of her merchandise afloat it alwavs lnlinitely
greater than ours, many of our ships being usually
loaded by the help of British eaiiitul
Y'heite built one Alabama or blocktuie-rnn-
ner we can build an hundred, provided her prece
dents are allowed to remain.

I n, a good Cnion reb, and my battle cry are Dixie
and the Union.
; But you see my friend, we are gettitf restless
about some things. The war has hekum tnity
heavy on us, ' and after the big ' collapse, we
thought It was ' ever for good. : We had killed
folks and killed folks until the' novelty or the thing
had wore off and we were mity nigh played out
all over. Children were increasin and vittcls di
minisbin. By a close calculasbun it was purseved
that we didn't kill. our. enemies as fast as they
was Imported, nd about those times 1 thonght it
was a pity that some mirakle of grace hadn't cut
off the breed of furriners . some 18 or 20 years
ago. Then you. would have seed a fair fight-:
