Another Cruel Canard.
Telegrams received here from New York, yetu

senseless ai seautlonat, had been telegraphed
from this point, and obtained partial credence
with the guileless Oothamltes. It was no less
startling than a statement that Vice President
Colfax snd Hon. James Ilrooks had committed
suicide. Araoox other dispatches received In
quiring aa to the truth of this wonderful story
waa one from Charles It. Corn well, long and

more as soon as the necessary transportation
could be procured; and he further stales that

, In his opinion, their destruction waa a mil-

lUrv necessity. I undersund him tn aar. In
effect, that the salt worka were capturei from
the rebels; that It was Impracticable to hold them,
and that they were demolished, ao aa to be of no
farther use to the enemy.
I cannot agree that the owners of nronertv de.
atroyed under such circumstances are entitled to
compensation therefor from the I'nited States,
whatever other view maybe taken of the sub
ject. It Is Incontrovertible that these salt works
were destroyed by Ihe Union array while engaged
In regular military operations, and that the sole
object of their destruction was to weaken, o Io
nia or defeat the armUs of the so-called Southern
Confederacy.
I am greatly apprehensive that the allowance
of this claim could and would he construed Into
the recognition of a principle binding the United
fctates to pay for ail property which their military
forces destroyed In the late war for the Union.
No liability by the Government to pay far prop
erty destroyed by the Union forces In conducting
a battle or tlege has yet been claimed, but the
nrrcedent nronosed br this hill leads dl recti and
atronxly In that direction, for II Is difficult upon
but uuui fraaoii or juaiira to (liailUKUIBH
between a rue of that kind and the one under
consideration.
Had General Craft and hla command destroyed
the salt works by shelling out the enemy found
In their actnal occupancy, ihe case would not
have been different in principle from the one
presented In this bllL What uoaalbla difference
can It make In the rlghta of owners or the obli
gations 01 tne uovernmeni whether the destruc
tion was in driving the enemy our, or In keeping
them out, of the salt worksf
This bill does not present a case where private
property Is tsken for public use In tny sense of
ihe Constitution. It was not taken from the
owners, hut from the enemy, and It was not then
used by the Government, but destroyed. Its de
struction was one of the casualties of war, and
though not happening In actual conflict, was.
perhaps, as disastrous to the rebels as would
have been a victory In battle.
Owners of property destroyed to prevent the
spread of a conflagration, aa a general rule, are
not entitled to compensation there Ion and for
reasons equally strong the necessary destruction
of property found in the hands of the public
enemy, and constituting a part of their mllit ry
supplies, does not entitle the owner to Indemnity
from the Government for damages to him in that
way.
I f ally appreciate the hardship of the rase, and
would be glad If any convictions of duty allowed
me to loin In the nroDosed relief: but I cannot
consent ta the doctrine that Is found In this bill,

The ball given to Miss Bessie fttewthy her
parents, Senator and Mrs. Stewart, took place
last evening, and proved, as we predicted, the
uiua curiam aoriai an air mat nis neen given in
Washington, not only during the present but
also for a number of previous seasons. For
weeks the ball had been ono of the chief topics
of conversation In society. Young ladles looked
forward to It with anxious expectancy and
racked their poor brains with the Important
question, "What am 1 to wear!" But there
were few Flora McFlmseyi among them, (or the
belles of Washington hive parent with long
purses, which, howerer, frequently get shortened
before the close or a fashionable sea ton at the
national cipltal. It Is, therefore, not ft matter of
surprUe that each belle who pondered over the
above Important question at length answered It
to her own satisfaction, at least. This done, the

Plants and flowers. Over the windows at the
tack of the platform were hung two Immense
American Bags, bordered on either side with an
English and a Japanese flag otcuMeua These
flags rovered the wall nearly from the ceiling to
the Poor. At the opposite end or the hall, in
front or the gallery, the decorations were similar
to those on the platform. The aides of the hall
were festooned with vines of evergreens, looped
op between each window, where was alto placed
a shield bcirlog the emblem of some foreign
nation. The wlndow-aill were full of pot of
rare plants aod flower In full bloom. Attached
to either aide of allthegaiflxnrci In the room
was a small American flag, while the large chtn
deller In the centre of the ball was also a-aiiv
decorated with these small flag and white and

arranged as almost to give to the room the ap
pearance of an Immense flower garden, and the
delusion was ma le nearly complete by the voices

locations all over the room. It Is doubtful if
even the belli which have been given by the
Government to noted people In Masonic ball

than waa that which private taste and wealth
originated last evening.

It has been truly said that there are three

Upon It were placed all the delicacies of the
season, and many ilso that were ou,t of season.
The confectionery, however, was a perfect roar

credit to the skill and originality of Mr. Freund,
Into whose hands the supper arrangements were
placed. The design embraced miniature moun

well as bssketi of almost rrerr conceiv

signs was that or a Swiss cottage with a

The only cause of complaint that could reason
ably be advanced was, that there were two many

to move. This annoyance arose from the too

together with the startling developments which

the Indiscreet boasting of tome raemiierot Ihe

thtt Colgate had In hit postestlon a note from

A short ret lew of the leading etrnti in the
reign of King Amadeui cannot fall of being In
teresting at the present time.
It will bo recollected that Ihe uprising of 1H
which was headed by Prince Topcte and Mar
shal Serrano, drove Isabella II from the Spanish
throne. A provisional government wot then
proclaimed, and It held power till June, 1W,
when Serrauo was made regent. This regency
lotted till November 16, 1670. Then Araadcus,
the second son of King Victor Emanuel, agreed
to mount the Spanish throne If the Cortes should
elect him to that position by a two-thirds vote.
To this scheme there wu great opposition on
the part of the leaders of the Republican party,
then headed by Castiiear, the ablest agitator In
Europe. Hut he was elected by the necessary
vote, and accepted the throne December 4, 1970,
He entered Madrid, January t, 1HT3, amid great
rejoklogs, and entered at once upon the duties
and trial of hi reign.
In the new elections for the Cortes, held In
March, hi first MlnUlry.had a two-third ma
