CARTES DE VISITE,
Fremont and his Position.
[Erora the St, Louis Union.]
This spirit of Fremont's letter of accept
ance of the Cleveland nominated exhibit
so little radicalism as to excite the suspicion
among those who'nominated him, that he
was not exactily the man they took him
be and something has been thought neces
sary among thef riends to arrest the progress
of this damaging suspicion. The Distin
guished German Radical, Carl Henizen,
and Wendell Phillips undertook this., task,
and have giyen us the proceedings of an in
terview they had with the Cleveland nom
inee, at Nahanti Fremont there unbosomed
himself to his visi tors, and declared his po
sition to be:
1. He is opposed to Mr. Lincoln.
2. He is in favor of negro equalit}'. He
thinks the negroes should have the same
rights the whites enjoy. In short, he in
sists that "the word white should be ban
ished from our statutes and insitutions."
3. He is opposed to Mr. Lincoln.
4. He is in favor of a limited confiscation
He don't and wont accept the confiscation
I,lank in the Cleveland platform. "With
such a paragraph, nobody could effect a re
construction of the South." He views it as
a measure of 'revenge,' and therefore repu
5. He is opposed to Mr. Lincoln.
6. He is decidedly in favor of soliciting
the support and vofes of Democrat?.
7. He is opposed to Mr. Lincoln.
Such are the views of the Cleveland nom
inee. He is partly Radical, partly Demo
crat, and wholly opposed to Abraham Lin
John Morgan and Clay's Ilo'ses.
A gentleman from Lexington, Kentucky,
an incident relative to John Morgan
which is certainly characteristic of him'me
whether it be true or untrue. After he had
stolen the celebrated rare-horse, Skeedaddle,
Mr. Clay started in pursuit, with two fine
animals, worth five hundred dollars each,
and over took the free-footer, and offered
him both, together with six hundred dol
lars, if he would return the rarer.
•'Those will answer
your purposes just
as well,' said Mr. Clay.
John looked at the horses carefullr, and
"Well Mr. Clay they will answer my pur
pose as well as Skeedaddle", and as I am dis
posed to accommodate you
Here Mr. Clay's countenance brightened.
"As am disposed to accommodate you,
I will partly comply with your request."'
Mr. Clay was puzzler?.
"I will nartly comply with your request
I'll take these two horses, but I can't give
you tho other."
Mr. Clay was taken completely aback
but he was not to get away that easy. The
soldiers took the six hundied dollars from
him, and he was compelled to leave for
home on foot, with bis pockets empty.
The Treasury Change.
WASHTXGTOJI, Sunday Evening, Tuly 3,
1764—No Cabinet appointment was ever
accepted with such genuine and thorongh
reluctance as the Secretary hip of the Tress
ury by Senator Fessenden. It was not till
lrte yesterday afternoon, more than 39
hours after his confirmation, that he forced
himself to consent to forego all personal con
siderations, even the serious point of impart,
ed health, in difference to the universal des
ire of the country reaching him through
every possible channel and to the repeated
solicitations of the President, who would
not permits refusal.
Secretary Fesenden's heads of bureau?
and other subordinates have voluntarily
suggested modes in which they may light
en their labors ss much ss possible, that he
may be enabled to sustain his strength for
the highest duties of minister of finance.

slave holder he had a wife and eight chil

and identified himself with the institution
of slavery. i£e was a Virginia born, .living
in Kentucky, a cooper by trade. A negro
fell t» his lot somehow, with other things,
from his father's estate. He took that ne
gro, learned him the carpenter's trade, he
lived in the family, while all the children
were king born he nursed us, took care o5
us, led us along by the hand, and father (so
I am told and I believe it is true) never
gave him a lash or lick or any unkind word.
[Applause.] He was one of the noblest
black men I have ever seen. After awhile
in the course of events, my parents died and
left us poor—very poor, I was eight year?
old. I saw that negro put upon a stand
and sold at auction. That did not concern
very much- I scarcely knew what it
meant. I saw tbose who were my friends
—w,hom I loved dearly, and still love—I
saw them about it, and supposed as a boy
that it was all right. That negro came of
ten to see us, as he was taken away only
eight or ten miles. Ho was then forty
years old. Shortly afterward, a son of the
purchaser, in the wrath and fire of the mo

him one hundred deliberate lashes. The

Tim had been treated. Something settled

made a resolve, for a boy, of quite a serious
character, that if ever in the providence of
God I grew up to be worth anything,
enough to buy him back to freedom, I
would do it. His mastr. I presume, was
as kind as they generally are. It is not
the owner of the slave I am abusing, but
the institution. I am striking at something
higher than a man—the system. Time
passed on and I remained poor. Finally,
Calfornia became the rage, and I went
there. I got together money enough to
come back home and go to Kentucky.

Correspondence N. Y. Times,
An incident which may be characterized
as very important occured yesterday morn
ing, in front of Gen. Turner's lines- A sef
geant stepped out from our rifle-pits, and
moved toward the enemy, waving a late pa
per, regardless of the probability that he
would at any moment be shot. A rebef
officer shouted to him to go back, but thefound
sergeant was unmindful of the warning, anrl
asked, 'Won't you exchange newspapers ?',
'No,' said the rebel. 'I have no paper, and I
want you to go back,' With singular per
sistence the sergeant continued to "advance
saying 'Well, if yain't a paper, I reckon
some of your men have, and I want to ex
change, I tell you.' 'My men have not got
anything of tho kind, and you must go
back,' said the officer in atone louder andmighty
more emphatic. Nothing daunted the Yan
kce sergeant still advanced until he stood
plumply before the indignant officer and
said 'I tell you now you needn't get your
dander up. I don't mean no harm no way.
P'raps if ye aint no newspaper ye might
give me suthin else. Maybe your men
would like some coffee for soma tobacco.—
I'm dreadful anxious for a trade.' Tho as-ly
tonished officer could only repeat his com
mand: 'Go back you rascal, or I'll take
you a prisoner. I tell you we have noth
ing to exchange, and we don't want any
thing to do with you Yankees.' The Ser-all
geant said ruefully 'Well, then, if you
haint got nothin,' why, here's the paper
anyway, and if you gat one from Richmond
this afternoon, you can send it over. You'll
find my name on that.'

My wife introduced the first carpef at

some money, and I had an itch to spend it.
Went to a vendue and bought a bale of cot

she laid it down, sized it and painted it in
oils, with border all around it, and other
flowers over the centre. She went to New
York for colors, and ground and mixed,
them herself." The carpet was nailed down
OD the garret floor,' and she used to go
there and paint. She also took some,

THE CHOPS.—-We are gratified to state
that the grain crops of B!*e Earth and
Faribault counties have not been as severe
injured by the late drouth as generally
supposed. The farmers generally repre
sent that the yield will be at least as good
as last year, and in some localities better.
The rains of last year were not too late, as
crops so far are backward, but will
greatly benefit even wheat and oats, while,
they will prov» «f inestimable advantage to
the growing com. The experience of this
as well as last year is that fields which.
were plowed or drilled yield better crops
