AVe copy from the Washington cor
respondence of the Richmond Jiepublic
the following statement of facts in re
lation to the rejection of Colorado :
" Going back now to the Senate, that body,
during the afternoon, was enlivened by short
and pithy speeches from Trumbull, Doolittle,
Summer, Lane of Kansas, Ramsey, Conners,
Cragin and others, 2"' !lnl eoni n the bill
for the admission of Colorado as a State. Mr.
Summer's objection to the admission is, of
course, that the laws of the new State ex
clude negroes from the ballot-box, a very
important, practical question, possibly, as
there are but four hundred negroes in the
country, and no probability that there will
ever be a much larger number. Mr. Doolittle,
however, and others, put their objection upon
the much nore sensible ground that Colorado
dpes not contain a population sufficient for a
State. The facts appear to be that the terri
tory has deteriorated in population since 18G1,
and that it does not now contain over twenty
five thousand people, and there is a natural
and wide spread opposition in the Senate to
clothing so small a population with the
powers and prerogative of a State Govern
ment and a weight in the Senate equal to
that of Xew York, Pennsylvania, or Ohio.
During the debate there were some very
sensible remarks made by several Senators as
to the untlue haste with which States have
been created of late years, and the Senate
evidently was of the same opinion, for it re
fused the admission of Colorado by a vote
of 14 to 21."
TERRIBLE SCEXE OX THE
Fortune Wright, a colored soldier,
recently executed at Xew Orleans for
the murder of Dr. Trezevant, met with
a shocking death, the particulars of
which are given in the .New Orlans
Delta, as follows :
" The white cap was drawn over his
face, and shouting 'farewell, friends,'
the ropes holding the drop were cut.
lie fell some six or eight feet ; but the
rope not having been properly greased,
the knot failed to slip, so that when the
body rebounded,the knot twisted around
to his forehead. Wright thus hung
suspended by the loop passing around
his forehead, and, under the very promi
nent parts of the head behind the ears
liung by the head instead of the neck.
A shudder of horror at the unfortunate
occurrence passed through the witnes
ses ; but the shock having been suffi
cient to render him insensible, Wright
did not suffer by the accident. After
"hanging a few minutes, a copious per
spiration started from his body, and
soon his breathing became regular and
natural. The surgeons examined him
and declared that he could not die from
the effects of hanging ; the body was
lowered, taken from the rope and car
ried up a second time to the drop. The
inot vas retied and the rope placed
about Ids neck, the body propped up
and tlse tay ropes again cut. The
xioos-e again failed to slip, the rope be
ing aew and stiff, and not soaped, and
the knot cause around to the back of
his head. The rope remained under
the cMa, hovrever. immediately strang
ling the 3efore unconscious man, and
after a few convulsive throbs, the soul
of Fortuue Wright 3bad sped to its last
account. After banging for nearly an
hour, and being declared by the doctor
dead beyond a doubt,, the body was
taken down and toasigaed to a coffin."
"If," said Hon. Henry J. Baymond, of
New York, in a rceeat speeeh je the Federal
House of Representatives, we -cannot treat
our Southern peojJc as members of this
Union without degrading terms r doing
aught to humiliate or destroy their pride and
self-respect, then wejnay make up our minds
that we are fallen. We shall fail in restoring
peace, harmony and prosperity to the Union,
but the nation will not perish. Others will
take ourplaees who better appreciate the na
turc of the work that devolve upon us, and
who will accomplish the end we fail to reach,
or even to comprehend."

GENS. GRANT AND SHERMAN
HIGHLY INTERESTING REMI
NISCENCES A LETTER FROM
To Editors JST. Y. Evening Post:
As Professor Coppee, in his life ol
Lieutenant-General Grant, has given
some of his reminiscences of the cadet
life of the General when they were both
pupils in the military academy togeth
er, I hqve thought that it might while
away an idle moment at the fireside of
some of your evening readers to learn
in what point of view this celebrated
person, aud his equally celebrated friend
Gen. Sherman, were regarded by one of
their old professors at this school.
Larochefoucauld, or, Voltaire, both
profound judges of French nature, has
said that " no man is a hero to his valet
de cnambre," and I suppose it is no easy
matter for an old teacher to look up to,
as a great man, a person whose every
mental weakness he had probed as a
boy. Most of your readers may recall
the anecdote of the famous old English
pedagogue, who, upon one of his pupils
being named before him as having
achieved a great name, chuckled with
satisfaction over the recollection that he
had been tinder his ferule literally; so
I suppose there is something of this
spirit in pedagogues generally.
Now I can truly say that, not having
met Gen. Grant from the time he grad
uated, in 1843, until he visited the Acad
emy, in June, 1865, and Gen. Sherman
only twice, at long intervals, from his
graduation, in 1840, until the same
time, I felt when I saw them in this last
visit that I was in the presence of two
remarkable men. The feeling was not
stmply that which Dr. Johnson some
where describes as what every person
instinctively feels who enters the pres
ence of an admiral or general who has
encountered the perils of battle, nor
that which causes me instinctively to
uncover when I approach either of those
octogenarian Nestors of our old army,
Lieut. Gen. Scott, or General Thayer.
Alas ! how few are left,
Rari nantes in gurgite vasto,
but what all must feel who see for the
tirst time men who have done deeds
that have called forth the plaudits of
nations, and have won for themselves
the respect and gratitude of their coun
try. Of the student-life of each of these
men during their last year at the acad
emy I have a distinct recollection.
Brought under my supervision very fre
quently in daily recitations, and for
about three months, three hours daily
working under my eye, my opportuni
ties for gaining an insight into their
characteristics were passably good.
Professor Coppee describes Grant as a
" middle man," a phrase new tome.
He was what we termed a first section
man in his scientific studies ; that is,
one who accomplishes the full course.
I lie always showed himself a clear
thinker and a steady worker. He be-
longed to the class of compactly strong
) men, who went at their work at once,
i and kept at it until finished, never be
: ing seen, like the slack-twisted class,
yawning, lolling on their elbows over
their work, and looking as if just ready
to sink down from mental inanity.
Sherman Mas the reverse of this in
manner. Eager, impetuous, restless, he
i always worked with a will. Being one
ot those ot whom Lyron says,
' Quiet to quick souls is a hell."
If he wasirt at work he was in for mis-
j chief. If while explaining something
to Ins class at the black-board, 1 heard
any slight disturbance, denoting some
fun, I was seldom wrong, in turning
round, and holding up my finger to Mr.
Sherman. But one was more than re
paid for any slight annoyance of this
kind by his irrepressible good nature,
and by the clear thought and energy he
threw into his work.
That he should accomplish something
great I was prepared to learn. But not
so in Grant, whose round, cheery, boy
ish face, though marked with character
and quiet manner, gave none of that
evidence of what he has since shown he
Grant's mental machine is of the pow
erful low pressure class, which conden
ses its own steam and consumes its own
smoke; and which pushes steadily for
ward and drives all obstacles before it.
Sherman's belongs to the high pressure
class, which lets off botli with a puff
and a cloud, and dashes at its work with
resistless vigor, the result of a sound
boiler and plenty of fuel.
The question is often put to me
whether I look upon Grant and Sher
man as great men. To this there is but
one reply. Posterity alone, when the
clouds raised by passion, prejudice, and
partisanship, shall have been dissipated
and truth revealed in all her distictness,
will be competent to pronounce upon
this point. But, if great deeds, the re
sults of high mental and moral powers
of magnanimity and generosity toward
public and private enemies are charac
teristics of greatness, then cannot the
meed of this ennobling patent be with
held, in our own day, from either of
In the selection of subordinates to
carry out their plans, and in discrimina
tion of character, the faculty without
which no man can become a successful
leader in anything, both have shown
themselves equally happy. And of that
other faculty, directness of purpose,
equally essential to success, which keeps
the mind intent on the great object be
fore it, and rejects all side issues, how
ever tempting, that might divert it from
this object, each has furnished striking
Their place in the classes of Generals
may perhaps be settled more readily
now ; for their professional acts are as
fully before the public as they possibly
ever will be. Grant will take a con
spicuous place in history in that one to
which William of Orange, Turenne,
Frederick of Prussia, Washington, Mas
sena, Wellington, and Scott belong.
Sherman, if below, not far from that
galaxy, brilliant with the scintillations
of genius, in -which Alexander, Hanni
bal, Caesar, and Napoleon are to be
Wherever placed, they will go down
to all time as names dear to and honored
by the American1 heart, as connected
with the integrity of the Republic.
There is but one prayer that now, as
their old instrnctor, I would form for
them, and that is that having passed
through so many perils of the battle
field and of pestilential climate, they
may also get, scatheless, through that
truly American ordeal, the cunningly
wrought mesh-work of unscrupulous
politicians. As the Spaniards say,
Let us hope that, having borne them
selves so modestly and equably, under
such profuse showers of public adula
tion, with the examples of the vituper
ation poured upon Scott, Lincoln, and
Johnson immediately under their eyes,
and on the grand historic figure of
Washington looming up in the past,
they will not require the warning of
Scripture against the temptings of am
bition in the words addressed to the
prophet : " Is thy servant a dog, that he
should do thisgret thing?"
Of all the incidents in the lives of
these two illustrious men, nothing,' per
haps, was more characteristic of them,
and none probably will be longer re
membered by them with pleasure, than
their visit to their Alma Mater at West
Point, in June, IStfc More fortunate
than mortals generally, the lines of By
ron do not, in all, apply to them:
" Green and unfading blooms that schoolboy
Which we can ne'er forget, though we are
In a room in which the examination
for graduation, to which they had also
been subjected, was going on, the facul
ty before whom they had passed their
ordeal still sitting in it, a young class
of their comrades present, and crowded
with an eager, enthusiastic assemblage
of ladies and many distinguished men,
Grant first appeared, leaning on the
arm of the Superintendent, shrinking
and half drawing back, as, witli almost
feminine timidity depicted on his face,
he was led forward to be presented to
his old professors. Sherman, a day or
two after, passed through the same or
deal. With equal modesty, but with
that self-assertion of manner that has
become a habit with him, he greeted
all around, and in a few moments was
busy turning over the specimens of the
cadets' drawings that were placed aside
on a table, comparing the present with
the past. Happy Alma Jfattr, in hav
ing such sons to present to the Repub
lic. More happy that the characteris
tics of her flock, thus far, are personal
integrity and devotion to the public in
terests entrusted to them.
Very truly, vours,
" " 1). II. MAIIAN.
West Point, March 8, 1SUG.
A Cr.F.KGYMAN" AXD A BoOT-Br.ACK.
On Saturday morning a well-known
clergyman of Philadelphia stepping
upon a piece of thin ice, broke through
it and engulfed one boot in mud. The
incident occurred in crossing at Sixth
and Chesnut streets. A private in the
noble army of boot-blacks, witnessing
the occurrence, ran up with the usual
salutation, " Black 'em, sir !" The
preacher looked at the polished mate to
the defiled boot and directed the urchin
to begin operations. The boy began
upon the clean boot, to which by a due
proportion of spittle, blacking and fric
tion,he impaired a brilliancy that would
have done no discredit to Russia sheet
iron. Having done this lie looked the
divine in the eye, with palm extended.
" Now for the ten cents, Mister."
" When you're done," said the cler
gyman. Done what!"
" When you've cleaned the other
boot," was the reply.
" No you don't, was the quick rejoin
der, a little spliced with insolence ; "an
other sportin' man shut my eye up this
morning. Yer can't catch me twice the
same day. ' I know you sportin men.
Pay me now, an' I'll clean the other
boot. Ef yer don't yer can travel the
way ye are."
The divine looked at him, astonished
for the moment at being mistaken for a
"sport," and then dropping a portrait
of Secretary McCulloch into the hand
of the urchin, requested him to hasten
the completion of his task. Three min
utes afterward the good man was walk
ing down Sixth street, with eyes
straight before him, evidently pondering
upon the indisputable fact that it takes
all kinds of people to make up the sum
total of a world.
The Texdep. Passion'. When a man
is in love with one woman in a family,
it is astonishing how fond he becomes
of every one connected with it. He in
gratiates himself with the maids; he is
bland with the butler; he interests him
self with the footman ; he runs on er
rands for the daughters ; he gives and
lends money to the young son at col
lege; he pats little dogs, which he
would kick otherwise ; he smiles at old
stories which would make him break
out in yawns were they uttered by any
other one but papa ; he drinks sweet
Port wine, for which he would curse the
steward and the whole committee at a
club ; he bears even with the cantank
erous old maiden aunt; he beats time
when darling little Fanny performs her
piece on .the piano; and smiles when
wicked, lively little Robby upsets the
coffee over his shirt. Tliackeray. .

-A. CAM) I
ALL MEN OF EDUCATION and reflection
should ponder well uion the advantages of
Life Insurance, and should promulgate their ac
quired knowledge throughout the whole circle ot
their acquaintance. They should remember that
it recommends itself in many instances, not mere
ly as a measure of expediency, but as a bounden
duty, a duty easily discharged by the payment ot
a moderate sum. The question is : shall the mar
ried man trust the comtort of his family to a
chance ? albeit a promising one; or is he net
rather bound to make sure of a provision, as far
as I e can, for his wife, his children, his helpless
relations, for all those dependant upon him for
support, nd through the medium of Life Insu
rance, assure an adequate provision again: t im
pending poverty aud irretrievable distress How
muny men have I heard say : " Yes, but I want to
insure for a large sum when I do insure, and it is
not convenient now." And so, because the man
cannot gratify his vanity and pay the premium on
20,000, he dies, and leaves his wife and child
hou- eless, sorrow-stricken and broken hearted,
thrust on the cold kindness of quasi charitable
relations, without a cent to bury hiiu-or provide
iood for themselves. And this because he, the
loving and devoted husband, would not make
even a temporary provision, consonant with his
circumstances, for the wife who had been hl.s
nurse in sickness, his friend in distress, and whom
he had sworn to cherish and protect, and by the
payment of 75 or S100, secure many thousands.
Strange that man, who owes to his wife the chief
chain of his existence, the every day comfort of
his life, should be able to look heartlessly to that
period when their last parting shall take place,
wheu removed to that world, where to him, all is
hope and consolation, he shall have wilfully left
in darkness and desolation, steeped in poverty
and wretchedness, to struggle with the hard jus
tice of a hard hearted world. Resorting to Life
Insurance is risking nothing, but truly securing a
certain protit upon that which is, at all times, an
