City , and State Items.
Trial of Maj. Gee. The Military Commis
sion, sitting in the trial of Maj. John II. Gee, met
again yesterday, and, after the reading "of the
journal, Mr. Holland", Counsel lor the defense,
moved to quash the proceedings, on the ground
that the late proclamation of President Johnson,
declaring that hostilities had ceased, and that the
ordinary Judicial process could be executed by
the civil authorities in this and other Southern
States, late in rebellion, and restoring the writ of
habf m corpus, and that, therefore, martial law had
ceased, and the tribunals created to execute it
had terminated within the States named. lie
argued in favor of the motion at considerable
length, and cited numerous authorities to sustain
the position he took.
The Judge Advocate asked that tne motion bo
not entertained, on the ground that the Court had
no official evidence of the genuineness of the
The Court over-ruled the objection. The Judge
Advocate then asked time to prepare his answer
to the argument of the defense in regard to the
question of jurisdiction, which was acceded to
by the Court.
The Court then adjourned to 10 o'clock to-day.
We will endeavor to give, in our next issue, a
synopsis of the argument for and against the
motion of the defense.
Caught. The Charlotte Guardian states that
three men, supposed to be burglars, were arrest
ed in that City on Saturday, by Mayor Harris,
having in their possession twenty-five silver
Watches, fifteen brass Watches, together with
about a peck of breastpins, ear rings, finger rings,
spoons, &c. They are held for the arrival of per
sons from Newberu, Raleigh and other places,
who have been robbed of this kind oi ware lately,
to see if any of the articles can be identified as
those recently stolen iu the places mentioued.
Acquittal of Zilla Thornton. The jury,
in the case of the State vs. Zilla Thornton, a
colored woman, charged with arson, from John
ston county, agreed on a verdict, after our Satur
day's issue went to press, declaring lier " not
guilty." This verdict was rendered by a very
intelligent jury, and shows that no disposition
exists here to withhold evenhanded justice lrom
the colored people.
Robbed. The Jewelry Store of David Scott,
Greensboro', was entered oue night last week, by
some rogue, who took off thirty-seven watches,
and about half a bushel pinch-back jewelry. We
suppose the fellow contemplates going into the
Lottery Gift business, and intends to " sell for
one dollar, without regard to cost."
More House Dreaking. Some rogue broke
into the clothing establishment of Messrs. Hard
ing and Andrews, on Sunday night, during the
rain uuu siiow sioiuj, auu looh. uiercirom a nam-
ber ot articles in the clothing and furnishing line j
how many has not been ascertained. Entrance j
was gained by prying open the back door with a t
piece of round iron, with one end tlutteuod. One
or two darkies have been arrested on suspicion of
being implicated in the affair.
New Advertisements. There are several
new advertisements to be found in our columns
to-day, to which we would direct attention.
Travellers and Shippers are interested in the
Card of the Superintendent of the Raleigh and
The naked ; those having no coats to their backs,
Are referred to the chances at Farriss & Lack's.
House-keepers and Farmers, who may visit our
Should call at the Store of Mr. J. Brown ;

To inspect L. E. Heartt's most beautiful stock
Of Dress Goods and Trimmings, and everything
Bought in the best markets and since the decline.
See, also, the advertisement of Government
Oats for sale, of a Teacher wanted, and of steel
Killed. Mr. Jenkins Pritchett was instantly
killed, near Greensboro', on the 30th ult., by
being thrown from his buggy, his head strikiuga
stump, while his horse was running away.
John Harris, a native of North-Carolina,
committed suicide at Wilmington, Los Angelos
county, Cal. He had been a soldier in the Fed
eral army, during the late war.
A City. The citizens of Charlotte voted their
town a City, on the 5th inst., by 112 to 7; accept
ing the new charter by that vote.
A Good Sign. The editor of the Ashcville
Xetes, who is, we take it, a preacher or a doctor,
says: " We are called in the discharge of official
duties into nearly every neighborhood of Bun
combe county, East of French Broad. More
ploughing, fencing, clearing, and repairing is
being done than wc ever before noticed. Pre
parations are being made for an unusually large
crop. This indicates faith among the people in
the future quiet, and prosperity ot the country."
Pensions. Dr. Marion Roberts, late Physician
and Surgeon, U. S. Army, has been appointed
Examining Surgeon, at Washington City, D. C,
for Pensioners and Pension Claimants in Western
North-Carolina. He is located ll miles North
of Asheville, on the Burnsville road.

CONGBKSB. PASSAGE ' OF THE CIVTL
' . ; ' .r . BIIjXi OVER THE VKTO. :: v. -' "
On Tuesday last the Senate of the Unit :
States passed the civil rights bill over tli
veto of the President, by the following voU ,
Ykas. Anthony, Brown, Chandler, Clar
Conncss, Cr.igin. C'rcswcll, Edmunds, Fesson,
den, Foster Grimes, Harris, Henderson, How
ard, Howe, Kirkwood, Lane, of Indiana,
Morgan, Morrill, Nye, Poland, Pomeroy,
Ramsey, Sherman, Sprague, Stewart, Sum
ner, Trumbull, Wade, Willey, Williams,
Wilson, Yates 33.
Nays. Buckalew, Cowan, Davis, Doolit
tle, Guthrie, Hendricks, Johnson, Lane, of
Kansas, McDougall, Nesmith, Norton, Kid
dle, Salisbury, Van Winkle, Wright 15.
Mr. Dixon did not vote.
Much excitement was manifested as the
vote was !eing taken. Gov. Morgan, of New
York, was warmly congratulated on his vote
against the veto.
This bill passed the House of Representa
tives on the 13th of last month by u vote of
111 to 38 over two thirds, We Buppose
there can be no doubt that the bill will be
come a law. The New York Times makes
the following remarks on the subject :
" We trust no true and leal supporter of
the President's policy will imitate the radi
cal extremists, and question the loyalty and
honesty of the Senators who went with the
majority. No doubt a large portion of those
who voted to overrule the veto were Senators
who have great confidence in the discretion,
the judgment, and the loyal devotion to the
Constitution by which Andrew Johnson will
be guiderl, hereafter, as he has been guided
heretofore, no matter how vast may be the
power put into his hands. This rational
section of the Senate majority see that under
no conditions can the President be tempted
to assume dictatorial powers ; that he depre
cates becoming the dispenser of a vast and
almost illimitable patronage ; that he dreads
with the instinct of a true republican
large standing armies : and that he has no
schemes of personal aggrandizement reservcty
for future Presidential contests. j
" The moderate men, therefore, who yes
terday voted t override the veto, pav a trib
ute which we are willing to believe is not
altogether unconscious to the inflexible in
tegrity and the profound regard for constitu
tional obligations which they know will make
the President's course, let the power and
patronage placed at his disposal be ever so
In voting as they have done, the majority
ostensibly declare that they regard all exist
ing laws as insufficient to protect the freed
negroes of the South in their newly-acquired
rights. The President takes a more com
plaisant view of the matter. And it is for
tunate alike for North and South that he
does so. A sectionalist and a partisan in
the President's position at this crisis, intrust
ed with such powers ns a majority in Con
gress desire to confer upon Andrew Johnson,
would become a vile and intolerable usurpei
and tyrant. There is no danger, in the ac
tual circumstances, of such a result. Tin
honesty and common sense of the Execntivi
will prove the salvation of the country ir
,i -.ir at ..,,. f ,PKrrp,l ,,Mr na tl.
honestv nnd common sense of his predeces
sor carried the nation safely through tlu
terrible perils of the war."
The vetoes by the Presidents have been ns
follows : Washington 2, Madison 6, Monroi
1, Jackson 0, Tyler 4, Polk 3, Buchanan 1,
Johnson 2. If this bill should pass the
House it will be the second instance in the
history of government in which a law has
been passed over the veto.
THE PRESIDENT AT GEX. GRANT'S.
Lieut. General and Mrs. Grant held their
last reception for the season on Friday night
last. The President, w ith his two daughters,
arrived at half-past eight, and remained un
til ten. It was noticed that he shook hands
with Mr. Stevens. Mr. A. II. Stephens,
of Georgia, was present. He was treated
with courtesy by all, but no special disposi
tion to lionize him was observable.
THE TEST OATH. ,
In the House of Representatives on Friday
last the following proceedings took place:
The Speaker laid before the House the
following message from the President :
Washington, D. C, April 6, 1SG6.
To the House of lleprcsenUttires :
I herewith transmit a communication
from the Secreiary of the Treasury and the
Postmaster General suggesting a modifica
tion of the oath of office prescribed by the
act of July 2, 1802. I fully concur in this
recommendation, and, as the subject pertains
to the efficient administration of the revenue
and postal laws in the Southern States, I
earnestly commend it to the early considera
tion of Congress.
The communications of the Secretary of
Treasury and Postmaster General enclose a
list of United States officers who cannot lit
erally take the oath alluded to. They are
therefore discharging their duties in a faith
ful manner without compensation. Both
communications state that in order that the
public business may be properly and effi
ciently managed bv these officers itisabso
lutclv necessary that some modification of
the oath of office should be made.
The message was ordered to be printed,
and referred to the Committee on the Judi
ciary. BOUNTIES TO COLORED SOLDIERS.
In the Senate, on the 5th, Mr. Wilson,
(Mass.) called up the joint resolution respect
ing bounties to colored soldiers. It pro
vides that the omission in the muster-in
rolls of the words "free on or before April
IS, I8G1," shall not deprive any colored sol
dier of the bounty to which he is entitled,
and which is now, or may hereafter be with
held by reason of such omission; provided,
that nothing herein contained shall be so
construed as to entitle soldiers who were not
free at the date herein specified to receive
Mr. Wilson offered an amendment to the
effect that in determining who is the wife of
a colored soldier, evidence of cohabitation in
living together shall be taken as proof.
The resolution, as amended, was passed.
THE LAST MILITARY COMMISSION DISSOLVED
The military commission which has been
in session at Fortress Monroe since February
2d, of which General Hayes was President
and Major C. P. Muhlenberg, Judge Advo
cate, with Mr. C. H. Eminerson, of this city,
as plionographer, was on Monday, under or
ders, dissolved, all charges which had not
been tried being withdrawn. This was the
last commission in session.
The Chicago Tribune says: There has
been an informal meeting of the Radical
members of Congress in regard to the ques
tion of adjournment. After a full and free
conference, it has been decided to protract
the session until the latest period. A ma
jority arc in favor of holding on until Sep
tember. It is stated that, although a large num
ber of colored troops are to be muster
ed out, at least 25,000 will be retained in the
NEW YORK MARKETS.

"J-.vThb- Ocean Bottom. --Mr. 5reen, the fa
mous diver, tells singular stories of his ad
ventures when making search in : the deep
waters of tlie ocean. He gives me some new'
sketches of what he saw at the '-Silver Bank,'
near iiayti :. ". :
The banks are of the coral on which my
divings were made are about forty miles ii
length, and from ten to twenty in breadth.
On t his bank of coral is presented to the di
ver one of the most beautiful and sublime
scenes the eye ever beheld. The water varies
from ten to one hundred feet in debth, and is
so clear that the diver can see from two o
three hundred feet when submerged, with but
little obstruction to the sight.
The bottom of the ocean in many places is
as smooth as a marble floor, in others' it is
studded with coral columns from ten to one
hundred feet in height, and from one to
eighty feet in diameter. The tops of those
more lofty support a myriad of pyramidial
pendants, each forming more, giving the real
ity to the imaginary abode of some water
nymph. In other places the pendants form
arch after arch ; and as the diver stands on
the bottom of the ocean and gazes through
the deep winding avenue, he finds they will
fill him with as sacred an awe as if he were
in some old cathedral which had been long
beneath old ocean's waves. Here and there
the coral extends even to the surface of the
water, as if the loftier columns were towers
belonging to these stately temples that are
now in ruins.
A bill to construct an underground rail
road through Broadway has passed the New

The late election in Tennessee, under the
Governor's proclamation to fill the vacancies
in the Legislature, passed off quietly. The

The Texas Convention has passed a law
making five years' residence in the State a
necessary qualification to vote. The State
election will take place in Texas on the fourth
Monday in June. The Legislature will meet
on the first Monday in August.
In Missouri, the preachers who insist on
exercising their functions without taking the
oath are being brought to grief. The Grand
Jury of Pike county has indicted Rev. Jas.
Smith, a Baptist minister, for preaching
without license. The Grand Jury of Palmyra
has similarly found true bills against the fol
lowing ministers of Hannibal : Rev. Mr.
Wilkes, of the Christian Church; Rev. Mr.
duller, of the Presbyterian Church, and
Father Crenin, of the Catholic Church.
Trial of Jeff. Davis. Reliable infor
mation has been received here to-day from
Richmond, to the effect that a movement i
on foot to obtain a writ of h0efi corpus for
the release of Jefferson Davis. The writ in
question may issue either from the United
States District Court, Judge Underwood
presiding, or from a State Court. It is not
likely that a man of Underwood's well
known views would grant a writ for such a
purpose. The civil trial of Davis will now
be strongly urged. He can be held in this
district under the indictments pending
against nim in the Supreme Court of the
district. Wash. Cor. X. Y. Times.
