Execution of Champ Ferguson.
A special dispatch from Nashville
the Cincinnati Commercial of Saturday
describes the execution of Champ. Ferguson,
which took place the day previous,
as follows :
Champ. Ferguson was executed at noon
to-dHV, at tho penitentiary grounds just
outside the city. He died game on the
gallows, evincing no emotion until the
rope was placed around his neck, when
his face turned very red and broke out
into profuse perspiration, attended with a
strong quivering of the lips. He stood
composedly on the drop some twenty
minutes, while the charecs. sb'ecifWtions.
and sentence were read by Col. Shafter.

He replied, "Nothing to ay particularly

The noos was here placed ar. und his
neck, and then, for the first time, ha gars

a deep scarlet. The perspiration broke
forth profusely from his lace, and his lips
closed witn a convulsive quiver. Ine re

have flttrhed over his mind in all its full
ness, overpowering his fortitude.
Colonel Shafter wiped the sweat awav.

The Oil Cavaliers.
The correspondent of the Cincinnati
Gazette who accompanied the recent ex
cursion through Oil-tlom furnishes the fol
lowing graphic description of the depar
ture of tho party from Pithole City :
There was a lively competition in the
choice of horses all the good ones being
taken as 6oott as brought up. Unluckily
our urbane friend, formerly mine host of
tne (jribson, was unable to nnd his steed
ntil afier the entire party had started, so
that he enjoyed the distingushed honor of
being the last man leaving Pithole. A
few of the disabled, those to whom the
first days' ride proved too muh, were
placed in strong spring wairons and so.

roads like men sailing on a rough sea,they

Erastus Brooks, carefullv sunnorted bv
the arm of the portly President of the
Underwriters Insurance Company of Jin-
nnatL as the wheel would drop into one
the many bottomless pits of these roads
and threaten the capsizing of the whole
craft and crew in such a manner as to
place Brooks below, and his kind-hearted
protector above. But there is a legend of
this land that wairons never upset here, I
and it was not falsified on this occasion.
Among the number of those who had to

Mexican advices to the lath inst., from

Maximilian had issued a proclamation
officially announcing the departure of Jua
rez from the Mexican territory, and said that
the cause which Juarez had sustained with
bo much valor and consistency had at last
succumbed not only to the national will but
according to the same law that this leader
invoked in the support of his title, and that
even the brigandage into which his course
had degenerated, was abandoned by the de
parture of their chief from his native terri
tory. The Emperor adds, however, that disorder
and lawlessness were still kept up by sev
eral misguided leaders, but that the govern
ment was strong in its power and would be
inflexible in its punishment.
He has also issued a decree, dated the 3d
containing most vigorous measures again&t

aud Earl Russell is published in the Loudon
Gazette of the Hth lust
The correspondence begins with a letter
from Minister Adams, dated the 7th of
Anril last, in whicH he calls the attention of
Earl Russell to the official reports cf the
ravages of the Shenandoah, and announces
that lor the damages caused by such cruisers
his government cannot avoid entailikg upon
Great Britain the responsibility. ,
The reply oi Earl Kussell, dated Alay 4tn,
avs that the duties of Great Britiiu to the
Tnited States are not measured bf the losses
which the commerce of the lattei may have
ustained. The nnestion is simsly whether
the Queen's government have faithfully and
honestly performed the duties which the in'
ternatioual laws aud their ova municipal
,iv3 imposed on them.
In the reply ol Mr. Adams, iatcd Mar 4th,
he says that the insurgents beeame bcliger-
nts on the ocean solely by reason ol laeili
ies furnished in Her Majesty's ports for
them to do so. He complains oi the secret
sympathy of Her Majesty's officirs in the
Hrt ol Liverpool, ami couieuus wai alter
lie information which he supplied xesnect-
ue the Alabama, it was by flagrant neeli-
gencc of Her Majesty 's Board of Customs
that this vessel, admitted to be intended for
ivar purposes, was sullered to depart from
An interval of three months elapsed be-
ween the above letter and Earl Russell's
reply to it In response to it Earl Russell
proceeds to justify the course of Her Majes
ty's government in recognizing the beliirer-
ents, and reasons are given why, there wis
extreme difficulty in giving orders from
British ports to vessels of war pttrtly fitted
up in the l uitei Kingdom. In a very im-
ortaiit ixunt referred to in thg letter
Earl Kusself notices a statement i a let-
er f,om Mr. Adams in 1863, as to tin gov
ernment of Washington being ready to refer
ihesc disputes to arbitration. Earl Rtssell
declines this oiler and says it is a question
in the first place whether the Queen's gpv
ernment has acted in, good faith in ma' n
taining neutiuiity, ami in the second piaee
whether the officers of the Crown have coi
riC'.Ij interpreted the British statute.
Earl Kussell continues : The Queen's (toy
ernment can refer neither of these questions
to arbitration. The words used by hint are
as follows :
Her Majesty's government are sole guar
dians of their own honor. They cannot
admit that they have acted with bad faith
in maintaining the neutrality they professed.
The law officers of the Crown must be held
to be the best interpreters of a British
statute than any foreign court Her Maj
esty's government must therefore decline to
make reparation and compensation' for (he
captures made by the Alabama or to refer
the question to any foreign state, and
her Majesty's government conceives that if
they were to act otherwise they would en
danger the position of neutrality in all fu
ture wars. Her Majesty's government are,
however, ready to consent to the appoint
ment of a commission, to which snail be
referred all claims arising during the late
civil war which the two powers shall agree
to refer to commissioners.
The reply of Mr. Adams is dated the 18th
of September and is very serious in its tone.
Mr. Adams considers that there is now no
dispute as to the fact that the recognition of
tho South as belligerents was such an act as
was never done by one nation toward an
other in a state of amity. He charges the
British Government with having acted
without knowledgo and upon mere pre
sumption in assuming that the evidence of
the blockade of the Southern ports waa im
perfect The blockade, he says, waa the
consequence, not the cause of the British
iwlicy. He thinks that the only excuse for
the British Government is that its conduct
was precipitate. He then intimates that if
the doctrines and practices of the British
Government are allowed to become the rule
the United Slates will not be the greatest
losers thereby. Mr. Adams appears to
think that the proposal of Earl RuBsell to
refer the question in dispute to a commis
sion, will be accepted by the United States.
The Times and Post are silent on the cor
respondence. The Daily News says : Besides the mag
nitude of the questions affecting neutrals;
the matter in dispute is closely connected
with the maintenance of friendly relations
between England and America.
The Star in referring to the escape of the
Alabama from England, remarks that this
may perhaps have been negligence, with
out such gross culpability as to lay u lia
ble for all the damages which the escaped
privateer perpetrated. But if our views on
those questions should differ from those of
the United States, and they should insist as
peremptorily upon their claims as we upon
our denial of responsibility, what then?
Are we to run the risk of rupture rather
than consent to arbitration?
The Star awaits instructions from the
United Stntes Government with much ap
prehension, and dares not say what effect
it will have upon the temper of England,
nor what disanterous disturbance of friend
lv relations may not resultfrom a deliberate
attempt to appraise the losses caused by the
Confederate cruisers upon England and to
enact payment for them.

negroes, but he states there are no negroes
in trades here, irom which they are ex
cluded. The number of grown and middle
aged men who have no business but loung
ing and whiskey drinking, is much greater

The President on Reconstruction.
New York, Octobor 23. The sub
stance of President Johnson's remarks on
the subject of reconstruction in the South
ern States, during a recent private inter
view, is given with the President's
approval by Major George lu Stearns, of
Jiassacuusetts. Ihe President, in reply
to the remark that the Democrats claimed
that he had gone over to them, intimated
that the Democratic party had discovered
tluir he was in advance of it and that it
was now trying to come up to his standard,
and he hoped it would succeed in doing so.
Ho re-enuuviuted- bis doctrine that not
withstanding the so-called secession of
certuin States they were never out of the
Union, but that bv their rebellious course
they had forfeited their civil ginnwuit,
to reconstruct the machinery of which, as
soon as practicable,- he considers the chief
duty of the time. This cannot be done
in a moment, but such great and happy
progress is being made in it that the re
sults sometimes appear to him like a
dream. Ue did not expect to forever de
prive them of their former civil rights,
even a majority of those who were ex
cluded in the amnesty proclamation, but
ne intended tnat thev should sue for par
don, and thus realize the enormity of their
crime. He is in favor of allowing neeroes
who have served in the army, those who
can read aud write and those who are
possessed of certain other qualifications, to
vote, but does not think it politic, or that
he has the right, to force these conditions
on the white people of the South, though
ne believes tnat they wilt ere long, con
cede this privilege to the freedinen. The
I resident also favors basing representa
tion in Congress on the number of quali
fied voters instead ol on the population as

inzulur announcement was made by the

send to Xew York for one.
Nothing, it is said, but the timely receipt
of the telegram from President Johnson
saying that North Carolina should at once
aud forever repudiate every dollar of the
indebtedness contracted to assist the rebel
lion, prevented the staving off, by the se
cession members, of a vote on the ordi
nance completely ignoring that debt, as
they had they had their plans very adroit
ly luiu lor tne purpose, uut on tne read
ing of the President's dispatch the ordi
nance waa immediately taken up and
passed amid cheering and great enthus
iasm, there being not a few negative votes.

vote of the people was not adopted.

all of which, it is believed, will be ignored.
Another knotty question with which the
members will have to deal is that in
relation to admitting negro testimony in
the courts. A majority of them are said
to be in favor of this concession, as indi
cated by their election of Gov. Sharkey,
who insists on it to the position of United
States Senator, and by their choosing for
State Printer a gentleman who also favors
it. These are only two of the many diffi

The Herald's Toronto correspondent
savs the members of the Provincial Gov
ernment and their supporters in Canada
are in a stilts of great agitation in regard
to the Fenian movement. The Fenian
Order has been knowd to exist there for
years, but has occasioned little concern
until the occurrence of recent events.
Owing to what has transpired in this
country, England and Ireland, the Cana
dian government has, it is said, organized
and distributed throughout the province a
force of spies.
Great activity is reported to prevail in
military affairs, changes in the disposition
of troops being made, garrisons being
strengthened in regions where the Irish
predominate. Investigations regarding
the loyalty of officers and soldiers are be
ing instituted, and arms are being distri
buted for the use of the citizens known to
be opposed to the Fenian designs. The
custom authorities are nervous over the
large importation of war munitions, which
it is believed will ultimately find their
way into the hands of Fenians, and it is
rumored that the present movements in
Ireland are merely a ruse, and that the
grand design is, when England has thrown
her troops into that country, that the arm
ed forces of the Order on this side of the
Atlantic, shall seize Canada and declare
it an independent State, and place it un
der the protection of the United States.
