His government did all Jt-conjld to rrvvetil
the Alabama and other British pirates
from leaving port, that it did even more
prevent the Cttrng oiit of those pirnteT
than our government did to prevent armed
ships from leaving American ports to prey

that the rebels were belligerents.' 'He
then went out of his way to refuse per
emptorily the proposition niado by Mr.
Adams tjome two years ago to leave the
question to the arbitration of a third power,
giving as his reason that the honor of his
government would not allow of an appeal
from the decision of the law officer of the
crown to the decision of another 'govefn
ment.aiid then very condescend inglyoffered
consent to the appointment of a com
mission, to winch will lie referred all
claims arising during the late civil war,
which the two powers shall agree to refer
Mr. Adams replied by showing that due
notice was served upon his lordship of the
titling out of the Alabama for the purpose
preying upon American commerce;
after an unprecedeuted delay of three
months orders were telegraphed to .Liver
to seize the Alabama, when the ship
already left an hour before. In. re
to American ships beingtltted under
same circumstances under which the
Alabama was lilted out, to prey upon the
commerce of Spain and Portugal, Mr.
Adams very deliberately floored his lord
by informing him that the American
overninent settled with those powers to
satisfaction, and that that should
Una matter, and - that he demanded
England should likewise settle to the
satisfaction of our government, and then
"parallel 'would be perfect. '.He in
formed his lordship that our govrrjiuieut
with as much propriety cite Tjrilish
precedent in the matter of the violation
our flag by the impressment of seamen
American ships sixty years ago, to
justify the so-called "Trent outrage, ao
British .Government could go back,
years to quote American precedents
allowing the"TMabama-' and-trther
British-Rebel lMratos to - leave British
ports. . . . - f ., . , .
Mr.. Adams .concluded bis letter by
warning Earl Eussell of the serious conse
quences that would result to English com
merce by llie general adoption- of the
British interpretation of the law of bel
ligerent rights that his doctrine will
sooner or later coiuo home to roost in
Downing street, when in some future
wats," f fly' Alabama way issxie; ftomj
cnHvonieiit neutral' ports, to sweep
ISritish commerce from the ocean.
Ir. .AdainsV wound tip by' replying in
most admirable manner, in very caus
tic style, to the hypocritical congratula
tions offered by Lord Russell on the abo
lition of "slavery, by saying that hefeannot
forget that his Lordship visited "with all the
severity of his too weighty censure" the
of emancipation by. which that result
brought ubout. . .
Mr. Adams has thus committed our
Govermuint trf the' position mii : a' Jurt
too) that our claim for damages should
paid by the British Government. This
Rasaoll will 'not acuede ta. tie will
agree to leave "the' equity of our de
mand to be decided by a third power, arid,
will not consent to its being left to a
commission judging -hy. hi proviso that
such -claims shall ba submitted as the
powers, shall .agree to leave to.he
decision of a commission. ' " '
The dispute has now roached a very
serious phase. Our Government has been
very summarily "snubbed" in offering
submit the question, to be arbitrated by
thitd power, !Either we will have to
quietly, pocket qur. losses and accept the
tngush doctrine ot belligerent nguts, ana
come out of the diplomatic contest shorn
our pride and disgracefully humbled,
we must very decidedly insist uponpa'y-
ment being made, by offering the lout argu
ment known anions' covernincnts. "When

the British minister, seized? the barque

might be some truth in the rumor that

tion of England assisting France to op
pose the eniorcemem of the -Monroe doc

whether fhis'riimor is true.

has the entiro confidence of the officers of
the Internal Revenue, as the resolution
passed unanimously at the mcctjng of As
sessors at Albany, testify.
Mr. D. C. Whitman, the present able
and efficient Chief Clerk of the JDepart
ment, takes the place of Deputy Commis
sioner. Mr. AYhitman has liecn connected
with the Internal Revenue matters since
September, 18G2, and brings to the dis
chargetif his duties a large and ripe expe
rience, ins administrative ability, and un
tiring industry. The resignation of Mr-
Orton is a great loss to the country, as he
was "the right man in the right place,"
but, with Messrs, Rollins , and AYhitman,
who'had the entire confidence of Mr. Or

labors of the Department, in charge of it,
we feel assured that'its important affairs

A Suggestive Contrast.
In Germany not a single person has
been killed by a railroad accident since
rail roads -wero first :built aterii) of nearly
forty years. In the United States, accord
ing to a tabic compiled by underwriters of
insurance wmpanies, and recently pub
lished, the total number of persons killed
by.railwtdicckleots during Jie last six
months is 128. The contrast speaks volumes-of
itself ia relation, to tho way in
which carelessness and recklessness have
done the part of wilful murder.

The Murder at Pithole.
A special dispatch to the Meadvillo Re
publican, dated Pithole City, October 24,
gives tlie following details of a murder at
Pithole City on Monday night :
A new establishment to be known as
"Varieties was opened last night for th
first time with a ball. The evidence shows
that late at night an actress, who was in
company with John Simpson, of Roches
ter, went to the dressing room preparatory
to going liome, and while in the room two
men entered, one of whom u-s tho Aa-
ccased, and attempted to ravish her. Her
screams attracted Simpson to the room,
wuo 11 is auegea snot one ot tiieiu, named
Matt. Kintoe, from Trov, N. Y, the keep
er of tlie Hccuan saloon there.
Simpson was immediately arrested and
was fully committed" for trial. The
town has been the scene of considerable
excitement all day. . The . friends of the
deceased threaten that Simpson shall never
leave tne town alive, and the place of his
confinement is continually surrounded by
crowd. Several deputy sheriffs, in con
nection with the local police and citizens,
are deemed sufficient to ensure the ac
cused a safe conduct to Franklin, which
will occur sometime during the night.
A public meeting of tho citizens is
called for to-morrow night, to devise some
means of ridding tho community of the
band of desperadoes who infest this sec
tion. A dispatch from Pithole City to the
New York World dated October 25th,
gives the following additional news iu
regard to the crime:
Thecoroncr's jury to-dny found Simpson
guilty of the murder of Maecnteo. There
considerable excitement, as the friends
tho deceased are endeavoring to obtain
possession of the prisoner with a view of
summary punishment; but they are-not
likely to succeed, as the force guarding
prisoner is- strong enough to insure
safety. Ho will leave to-night for
Franklin. ' " .
The Shooting Affray at Akron.
[From the Akron Beacon, October 26.]
Yesterday evening, our usually quiet
community was thrown into quite a state
excitement by the shooting and se
verely, if not fatally wounding of one of
our colored citizens named Andrew Jack
son, familiarly known as "Tobc.''
lobe, our readers will remember, is
same person who was recently so bru
tally assaulted with a heavy iron weight,
a scoundrel named Lewis from. Cuya
hoga Falls, and had not fully recovered
from the injuries then received, when he
was, on Mondav, assaulted by another
viper of the same brood, from the same
village, named Beardslcy, and again near-,
deprived of his life. From all the cir
cumstances that we can gather, the blame .
the whole affair rests with Beardsley.
commenced by most vilely abusing
"lobe'' as he was quietly passing along
street attendiug to his own business,
and after engaging him in a dispute, and
hurling a large stone at him, upon "Tobe's"
showbig resistance, struck him with a
"Bury, when "loby knocked him down
and administered some well-deserved pun
ishment upon him alter be was down. 1 be
bystanders then interfered and separated
men, when Davis immediately ran un
the Canal Bridge, on Market Street,
near the Empire, where tlie whole afuiir
took place, but returning, followed "ToTc,
who was moving away to avoid further
trouble, and after exchanging a few words
with him, deliberately placed a pistol close
his body and fired, thu ball entering
body in the region of the stoniacli,
Tho surgeons (Drs. Bowen and Howard)
who are in' attendance, have as yet been
unable to find the ball, or decide as to the
extent of the injury received by Tube, and
whether tbe wound is fatal or not.
Tola this morning, ( 24th,) is compara
tively easy. The wretch who perpetrated
the foul deed is in jail. AV'e hope justice
may be meted out to mm to the extreme
extent of the law, whether it be the peni
tentiary for life or hanging by tho neck.
