The otllccrs of this city and county
were no little surprised yesterday on

known here, or If known at nil, only to
u very few persons, und thu matter was
kept very quiet, that clt'orU were being
made to secure tho pardon of Butler,
Certainly tho olllcers were not let Into the
secret, nud wu doubt very much If there
is 0110 ol them, either city or county, Unit
could have been Induced to lend his in.
