The court entertained the motion and
acted upon it, and jt was his duty lob ave
heard such petition and affidavit as were
offered by counsel in support of it. The
declaration Of the Judge, as stated .in
the petition, that ho would sign no' bill, of

the petition, and his only remedy is by
mandamus to compel him. "The law pro

Being a non-resident he Tiad the right with
in twelve months from tho rendition of the
judgment to make bis application to set it
aside, and in support of that motion to fjle
his petition and affidavits, that the court
might judge of the Miffieiengy of the cause
shown, and if the court should be of opin
ion they were not sufficient, he had the
right to have them incorporated in his bill

the faaw stated in the petition and the affi

thp Judge to sign the bill of exceptions if

sympathy, more or Jess actively expressed,
for all rebels but their own.

THE REWARD FOR III3 CAPTURE.
From the London Globe, Nov. 30.
The announcement of the departure; of
James Stephens, the Fenian Head Centre
trom America, and of his intended return
to Ireland, has been met on the part of the
government by an offer of the largo reward
of 2,000 for his apprehension that is,
1,000 for such information as will lead to
his apprehension, and a further 1,000 to
any ono who may arrest Stephens. This
notorious conspirator is described as a man
about forty ycarsof age, five feet seven inches
higji, stontwith broad, high shoulders, fair
hair, bald all round the top of his head,
wears all his board, which is sandy, slightly
tinged with gray, and long under chn,
broad ferchead, tender eyes, and has a pe
culiar habit of closing the left eye when
speaking ; high cheek bones, rather good
countenance, and his hands and leet arc re
markably small and well formed. The
government deserve? great credit for the
promptitude with which they have ncted
in this mattter, and the largeness of the re
ward offereil jnstifies the hgpe that if ever
Stephens again steps his foot on British
soil he will be arrested before he can go 'to
Ireland to renew XliO trouble which Fen'mn-
Jsni has produced in that island.

The foreign newc by the cable stated that
the man who gave the information which
led to the arrest o( Surratt is a French Cana
dian named St. farie. ITc was formerly a
Union soldier, and afterwards perved in the
Papal Zouaves. Both he and Surratt, it .is
alleged, were in lore with the same lady in
Washington, and St. Marie betrayed Surratt
through jealousy. The following is said to
Je tho affidavit of St. Marie, On which Sur
ratt was. first arrested while serving ai a
" I was living in Maryland, at a wnall
village called Kllangnwan, or Little I eras,
about twenty-Cve or thirty miles from Bal
timore, where 1 was engaged as teacher for
a criod of about five months. I there and
then got acquainted with Lewis J. Weicb
man and John II. Surratt, who came to
that locality to pay a .visit to the parish
priest, Kt that first interview' a great deal
was said about tho war and slavery, the
sentiments expressed by these two individu
als being more than Focessionist. In the
course of the conversation I remember Sur
ratt to have said that President Lin
coln would certainly pay for all the
men that were slain during the war.
About a month after 1 removed to Wash
ington, at tlie instigation -of Weichman,
anil got a situation as tutor , where
he was himself engaged. Surratt visited us
weekly, and he once offered to send me
South, but I declined. I did not remain
more than a month at Washington, noticing
able to agree with Weichraan, and enlisted
in the army of the North, as stated in my
first statement in writing to General King.
1 have met Surratt in Italy, at a small town
called Vellclri. lie is now" known under
the. name of John Watson. I recognized
him before he made himself known to me,
and told him privately, 'You aro John
Surratt, tho person I have known in Mary
land.' He acknowledged he was, and beg
ged of uie to keep the thing secret. After
some conversation we spoke of the unfor
tunate affair of the assajtiination of Presi
dent Lincoln, and these were his words ;
' Damn the Yankees, they have killed my
mother. But I have done them as much
harm as I could. We.havc killed Lincoln,
the niggers' friend.1 He thenvaid, speak- !
ing of his mother. ' Mad it not been for
me and that coward, Weichman, my mother
would be living now. It was fear made
him speak; had he kept his tongue, there
was no danger for him. But if ever I return
to America and meet him elsewhere, I shall
kill him.' He then said he was in the
secret service of the South, and Weich

Tie told me to remain till I would hear from
him; after a few weeks he'eame and pro
posed to me to go to Spain, but 1" declined,
and asked to go to Paris. He gave him
seventy pounds, with a letter of introduc
tion, to a party there, who sent him to
Rome, where he joined the Zouaves. He
saya he can get money in Rome' at r any
time. I believe that he is protected by the
clergy, and that the .murder was the result
of a deep laid plot, not only against the
life of President Lincoln, but against the
existence of the republic, as we 'are aware
that the priesthood and royally are; and
always kave been, opposed to liberty. That
such men as Surratt, Booth, Weichraan
and others, should, of their own" ac
cord, plan and execute the infernal plot
which resulted in the death of President
Lincoln, is impossible. There are others
behind the curtain who have to make these
scoundrels act. I have also asked Win if
he knew Jefferson Davis. He Said not, but
that he had acted under instructions of
persons under his immediate orders. Being
asked if Jeff. Davis had anything to do
with the assassination, ho said: '1'am not
going tcr tell yon.' My impression is that
he brought the order from Richmond, as
he was in the! habit of going thcreVeekly.
He tnnst have wished the others; to do it,
for when the event taok place he told me
be was in New' Ydrkv prepared to fly as
soon as the deed vras done. He says he
does not regret what has taken place, and
that he will visit New York in a year or
two, as there Li a heavy shipping firm there
who had much to do with the South, and
he is surprised that they have not been sus
pected. This is the exact truth of what I
Know about Surratt. More I conld not
learn, oeing afraid to awaken his suspicions,
and further I do not say.'

Your letterrequesting me to send lo Wash
ington affidavits of Jrbur non-military conr
nection with the Irish Republican army,
has been received and the request complied
with, in care of Capt. Fitzpatrick, and I.
will write to General O'Neill on the ub-'
ject. I regret to tell you that you are not
going to be banged, bo great a crime upon
a non-combatant like, yourself would make
every lushman in America a enian, and
furnish our exchequer with the necessary
means to clear Canada 01 English authority
in short ordei- a consummation devoutly
to be wished ; and therefore, I say, I regret
that you will not be haneed. It would bo
a glorious death for you; and a life that
would otherwise pass away unknown, in a
few years, at most, would become an hon
ored portion of the history of our race and
of the. times.
But whatever be your fate, pray God that
you will act a brave, dauntless part to the
last. Kemember that you not alone repre
sent your own weak nation, in the position
in which you are plaeed, but your country
and your race also; and though much I
regret that you are in the power of blood
thirsty foes, still irust And hopothat,-nn-der
any and all circumstances, you will
make your countrymen proud of you and
your name 'honored.. I remain, yours sin

Dear Sir: I have examined your Stomach Bit
ters carefully, and find it what you represent it
to be. The high order which the ingredients
going into it take in the Materia Mediea, as well
as the most happy proportioned combination of
substances, make your Bitters far superior to any
similar preparation in the country. The fact
that you use only the purest llourbon Whisky
must necessarily recommend your Hitters lu
another point, especially as far as wholesome
ness and portability are taken into considera
tion. 1 was well pleased to see in yoar esUlx
lishmcnt the nrncess of manuEacturinif mnr
liittcrt carried on by way of displacement, which''
not only gives you a better proauct, out also
recommends itself by clearer operation. . .

unwilling to be without a bottle of your Hitters
in the house, as she says it is the most strength

that no house onght to be without it: and I feel
it due to the public to make known the wonder

Deftr Sir: I take pleasure in saying that I was
suffering from Ague and Fever, or Chills and
Fever, for .several months; when ?1 was rod vised
by a,lrUnJ to- try.yoaffs.mous Stomaeh;BltterY
and after using two bottles I am entirely re
stored. It not only imparts new'vigor. bnt It Is
truly the best strengthening and.' appetizing
tonic, at the same time pleasant to the taste, I
have ever known used Or afforded to the papllo :
and I would say to all those similarly afflicted
that if they would be cured and have the disease
thoroughly eradicated, from the system, to- use
your Bitters, and be convinced of their wonder
ful medicinal power and virtue.
I remain yours respectfully,
P. P, NEVITTi
To . Wilder. Etq.,Gttt: .
I was a good deal afflicted with Indigestion,
and occasional attacks Df'Dyspepsia. I was ad
vised to use your Bitters. 1 scarcely used one
bottle when I felt relief, and from tho use of the
Bitters, though nearly sixty seven years of age.
feel the same energy and vivacity and 'cheerful
spirits of a boy of twenty-five. YpurBiUers re
a, pi easant tonio and cordial, and as they are pro-
Earod from -pure ingredients and good oldBodr

afflicted as I was. I would say to such persons,
keep your, minds easy your; JjoweU. open, your
head cool, your feet warm, and use 'Wilder'fl
