The Teiai. f Jeff. P13-
latest rumor is that Chief Justice Chase
has consented to preside over the trial
of Jeff. Davis, at Richmond for Treason.
The suspension of martial law by the
President in Virginia is said to have
overcome his previous scruples and de
cided this course. '".. . . ,
The Attorney-General will be assisted

The trial will be conducted in a man

It is useless to complain of what is
already settled. Government having
decided to put this cause into Court,
and abide the issue, we can only hope
that a result may be reached which will
vindicate the wisdom of its conclusion,
and strengthen the foundations of those
sound political principles that are the
immutable safeguards of our national
That Davis is smilty of Treason, the
world knows. That "fact has already
been adjudged by a tribunal much high
er than the one appealed to, and under
circumstances which impart profound
solemnity to the decision. That he
will never suffer the extreme penalty of
his crime, is certain. If there ever was
a time when it would have been wise to
martyrize him upon the gallows, it pas
sed months ago. Possessing as we did,
the advantages of a moral verdict and
of a political triumph, it is greatly to be
doubted whether it would not have
been better if Davis had cscacd arrest
altogether, than to have him made the j
subject of a trial which will convert him ,
into the hero of the day; while it can j
result in no definite conclusions upon
his personal case. !
For nobody believes a Virginia jury
will render a verdict of guilty. The
prosecution will prove its charge, by
piling mountain upon mountain of evi
dence. It will make a record of con
demnation clear as noonday. Iat it j
will not overcome the power of South- j
era prejudice, or prevent the introduc-
tion into the jury-box of men who re-;
gard Davis almost as a demigod, or j
who, having participated in his crime, '
view it with veneration and not with
Whatever may have been the differ
ences of ideas upon this subject in the
past, thoughtful men must now agree

which shall in future prevent disloyal
men taking absolute control of politics,

Large Lump of Gold! "We were
shown this morning, by our yo ung friend
and former fellow-citizen, Mr. P. C.
Carlton, a lump of gold, taken from
one .of the mines of P. C. Carlton &
Co., in Xorth Carolina, which weighs
Five pounds. It is almost pure gold, j
ana is worth about 1,325. It was tond
about three feet under the snrface.
Sr. Carlton jihcwiis nnntlior liimn wliifli
was obtained from the same mine, which
weighs jour ounces. Ihe tormer is the I
largest lump of gold which has been
found in the State since 182S.
We believe that North-Carolina, ta
ken all together, has better mineral re
sources than any of the States, and all
that is necessary is to develope then.

A Hot Place. The Memphis Bulle
The assassination of Lieutenant Dland

was followed by a night assault with
pistols on the house of the Freedmen's

Major Knox, the Commissioners and
other officers. Major Knox, publishes
his statement in which he says the doors
were burst open and two shuts fired in
to the room, while some one said, " (let
out of tnis place, you damned Yan
kees." The Rev. Theodore Clapp. who died
at Louisville on the 17th instant, was a
native of Massachusetts, but for a long
time a preacher in New Orleans. It is
more than thirty years since he com
menced his ministrations in that city,
and, though much was said against his
religious ideas, there were few who did
not concede the power of his intellect,
his high tone of spirit, and the exceed
ing generosity of his nature. The church
edifice in which Mr. Clapp officiated in
New Orleans was presented to him by
a wealthy Hebrew of that city, we think
the late Judah Touro. Mr. Clapp was
remarkable not only for his pulpit pow
ers, but for hia courage and devotion
iu times of pestilence, and hia personal
exertions for the releif of the poor and
and of the stranger. Peace to the ash
es of that good Samaritan !
Louis Napoleon's second volume of
Julius Caesar is spoken of as still better
than the first. It is said to deal less
with theory and sentiment, and much
more with accounts of battles and soiges,
marches, campaigns, and geographical
descriptions, all worded with extreme
technical precision. It will be some
time before the work is reproduced in
this country, hut extended summaries
are given of it in the Northern journals.
A Southerner in a private letter to
the editor of the New York Tribune
says : "Because a man was a rebel once
there is no reason why he should bo a
fool now." He certainly has a forcibly
way of putting things.
