TUESDAY. APRIL 11, 1865.
the news.
The event of yesterday was the great csiA
roßATioif. Oar dispatches give some ac
count of the rejoicings elsewhere.'- If the
demonstration in Chicago was a fair represen
tation of the outburst of public rapture In
the United States it may be safely affirmed
that no such'juhUee was ever before held on :
this continent. Puli reports of the demon
stration vrill be found in our, local columns.
The epontancoueness of the enthusiasm
distinguished it even more than its magni
tude. Time would fall ns to write all the in
cidents which transpired, telling how the
hearts of the people overflowed with sudden
Joy. Grave men ofbuoincaspiradedthe streets
Mowing tin horns. The Board of Trade
eang Old Hundred in mighty chorus, and
followed it with John Brown and all the
dozologics in the hymn book. Light men
carried heavy men on their shoulders. Bulls
embraced Bears, and Bears felicitated Bulls
5n the most absurd fashions. The great
procession come together as by magic.
Prom all parts of the city they came, on
foot, on horseback, and almost on their
heads, with single carriages, doable teams,
four-borse teams, and six-horse teams, a
mighty army with banners. Everybody had
a free rida. Pedestrians clambored into
other people’s wagons and were joyfully
welcomed, and all went forward shouting,
to swell the lengthened throng. At night
the city was Illuminated by miles of bonfires.
Prom the Court House Square to the city
limits in every direction the blazing piles
lighted np the crowds which thronged the
sidewalks, while fireworks fisw aloft from
■hundreds of house tops and street comers,
stud thousands of windows shone with ilia,
urinations. Such a carnival was never before
witnessed in our goodly city.
Gen. Butler’s speech, which is fully report
ed in our 'Washington dispatches, will com
mand universal attention, as it touches upon
one of the vital questions which must soon
come up—the disposition of the leaders of the
jcbellion and the people.
Gen. Steele is meeting with continued sue*
cess in Ills advance npon Mobile and has cap
tured a rebel General and some prisoners, be
sides destroying the rebel railroad communi
cations and with Conby and Granger, driving
Ibe rebels into tbeir works.
The number of men surrendered by Lee to
Gen. Grant is placed at 22,C00. The amount
of artillery was email.
The latest news from Sherman shows that
be has occupied Raleigh, Johnston still re
treating and taking np a new position on the
Tar Eiver, about forty miles from Goldsboro.
StoDcman In the mean time has cut the road
lictwccn Danville and Greensboro.
Yesterday was a day of general jubilee
throughout the North, as is evidenced in our
dispatches. At Washington, the President,
•who has returned, was serenaded, and re
plied In acknowledgment* with a playful lit
tle speech, in which he intimates that to*
might he will say something of importance.
His words will he’ waited for with anxiety
Jiom one end of the land to the other.
Mosbj's guerillas following the example
of Lee have thrown down tbeir arms, and
without waiting to he paroled have gone to
their respective homes. Our Washington
dispatch intimates also that the Trans-Mis
sissippi armies have given up the war, and
that the Legislatures of the Trans-Mississippi
Slates are busy making tbeir peace with the
Government. Everywhere the rebellion is
breaking np.
The Bt. Albans raiders were brought np in
court yesterday at Toronto and discharged,
with the exception of Young, who has been
committed for trial.
Forrest’s cavalry forces have been routed
sit Tuscaloosa, Ala., in the vain attempt v to
head off andlnlercept Wilson’s cavalry expe
dition, on its way towards the Golf to co
operate with Steele’s and Canby’s forces in
the redaction of Mobile. It is probably For
Test’s last battle.
A Washington dispatch Intimites that as
the rebel Secretary of War, John Breckin
ridge, was with Lee’s it is
expected he was among the captures.'
The work of reducing Mobile Is progress
one rapidly and successlully, The rebels have
Leen driven Into their works and pa-t lolly
invested. Gen. Steele has cat their raHroai
communications, captured a rebel General,
mid some prisoners, and is marching on
33iakdy to flank the rebel position.
We struck off, yesterday morning, the
enormous number of 55,030 copies of the
Tribune containing the glorious
news of the surrender of Lee aud the rebel
»rmy to Gen. Grant. This, we believe, is the
la*gtst number of copies ever issued In one
edition by any newspaper in the Northwest.
One news agent took 22,000 copies. *
Poring lost week the average daily edition
•was nearly 44.000, aud we would not be sur
prised if during this week the Tribune cir
culated 300,000 copies, or an average of
!50,000dally. Every body wants to ece the
jjreat news, and everybody, almost, reads the
Tiudune to find it in a reliable shape.
If the Jail of Richmond and Petersburg
produced a spontaneous, off-hand outburst of
rejoicing, the surrender of Lee culminated
that rejoicing, yesterday, with such a univer
sal uprising, out-pouring, procession-forming,
speech-making, banner-displaying, bonfilre
burning, rocket-blaring, day of glory as Chi
cago and its people hare never before seen.
tThcy seemed determined to vindicate the eter
nal possibilities of American progress by show
ing that, whatever had been our previous re
joicings, they could be out-done and literally
thrown into the shade by the demonstrations
•of ycllcrday. As Chicago has been first and
heartiest in war, so is she most gloriously,
enthusiastically in earnest in welcoming the
victorious achievements of the past two
weeks, which are the certain harbingers of*
Ihe return of peace land the restoration of
-the Union. Theproecsalon of workingteams,
carriages, Eire Department, and citl;
zens occupied some four hours in
passing the Tribune office. It was
got up in a style which no city in the world
but Chicago can equal. It was not so much
the length of the procession, though- it
reached for miles, nor the numbers of the
people, though while we are writing at least
twenty thousand people are gathered in front
<*f the Tribune office, but the true Western
heartiness and gloriously irrepressible jollity
which have characterized the whole cbnlli_
lion, tie worth a life time of ordinary exis
tence to witness. But one sentiment seems
to animate the entire people-joy— jot— JOT
—that the war is substantially ended, the
Union preserved, Republican institutions
vindicated, as well against internal rebellion
ss against foreign force.
The proprietors of the snccsU concern actu
ally went through the motions yesterday of
rejoicing over the downfall of their master
Jeff.’s kingdom, by hanging out an American
fibg, and letting off some fire-works from the
roof of their building. This is the sort of
homage that vice pays to virtue. There were
outward semblances of jov to conceal the
gnawings of inwurd -grief. Grant’s great
achievements strike as much consternation
Into Copperheads as Confederates. He has
shivered both wings of latter day “Demon,
racy.” The bolt that shattered the one
knocked over fbe other. In life they wera
united. In death, let them not be divided.

There is good authority for the statement tha

Washington. April, 10,1665.
Washington i*. Intoxicated with joy over the
sews or Lee's surrender and the early pros*
prct of peace. The merchants have closed their
places of business and the workmen and mechan
ics have left their shops and are marching through
the streets with hands of music, banners and can*
son. The town te a perfect Babel of excitement,
snch as ha- sever been witnessed here before.
All the departments are closed and the clerks are
participating in the general rejoicing. Several
popular demonstration* were made by the people
In front of the Executive Mansion daring the
morning. The President was engaged with hit
Cabinet and declined to respond to the two Aral
calls,bathe could notreaiatthe third. Jt was a
grand outpouring of the people; they were ac
companied by a band of music, which played.
“Bail to the Chief," 41 Yankee Boodle' 1 , and
“emenca," the people Joining In the itater by
tine lag sly Country 'its of Thee."
The merchants and workingmen of the Navy
Yard, with two cannon, tainted the President
with 100 gone fired Immediately in front of the
mansion. At 13 o'clock the President made his
appearance, and was received in a most enthusi
astic manner, the people waving their hats swing
ing their umbrellas, and ladles waving their
handkerchief!. When quiet was restored, the
President epokc as follows r
lam very greatly rejoiced that an occasion has
occurred so pleasurable that the people cannot
restrain themselves. [Laughter and cheers.] I
suppose arrangements are being na» e for a for
mal demonstration to-night or to-morrow night.
[«;rles of “Can't wait"] i shall, then, have to
respond. I shall have nothing tossy then. If 1
drloble it all out before [laughter] 1 see you have
a band ol music with you. I propose lor closing
up, that yon will hare them play an air or tune
called “Dixie." I bare always thought It the
best tune I ever heard. Oar adversaries over the
way have at'empted to appropriate it aether na
tional air. I insisted yesterday that we had fairly
captured it, and that we are endued to it. 1 asked
the opinion of the Attorney General, and he
stated that we bad lawfully captured It, and It was
onr*. 1 now reqaeet the band to perform it.
[Cheers.] -
The ban# then played Dixie. Daring its per
formance the ('resident remained st the window,
and after the band concluded he proposed three
good, i onalng, hearty cheer* for IneuL Gen. Grant
and all under hi* command. This proposition
was responded to with a will. The President then
proposed three more cheers for oar gallant navy.
The crowd responded a* beartl'y as before, when
the President bowed and retired. The band
I struck np Bail Columbia, and the immense crowd
dispersed, moving awoj in different processions,
to call npon other ofilcers of the Government.
Previous to serenaolng the President, the crowd
waited on Gen. Butler at hi; hotel. After repeat
ed calls the General made his appearance sno de
livered a short congratulatory speech, in the
I courae-of which he made some suggestions a« to
| the policy that should be pursued by the Admiuis-
I traoon In disposing of the leaders in the re bel
lion, and the tre«imea4 that the people of the
South should receive at their hands now that
peace 1« effectually proclaimed by lay isg down of
the rebel onus. Be was cnqaliflcdly opposed to
permitting those who have been active In the
cause of the so-cal cu Southern Confederacy lik
ing part In the administration ol oar State or na
tional affairs, or participating in the councils of
the nation. Be admission of the
ma*s of the Southerner* to all the rights of citi
zenship whenever they manifested their willing
ness to support the Federal Government, and be
was In favor of granting tins franchise to whites
and blacks alike. “1 am for treating all humanity
alike," said he, “and lor d> priviognone of the citi
zen? of the Santb of the fall blessings of Ameri
can citizenship."
Gov. xiennison said this is a happy day to every
frieudof constitutional liberty. For four years
have the enemies of the Government been wag
ing civil war for the destrnctlon of republican
Institutions, supported by sympathisers In the
North and alien: abroad. The power of the ene
my has at times seemed almost too great to he
broken by even onr patriotic armies. We have
encountered every vicissitude of war, ana de
spondency and gloom have again and .again
thrown their shadow over the land; but all this
is now past. Under the lead of Grant and his no
ble subordinate* the rebel power has been bro
ken,Us capital captured, and the Army of Northern
Virginia surrendered. In that army was centered
the,nope oftbe rebellion, and the necessity of its
defeat and destruction engaged the att-mtioo of
the Federal government for the restoration of it*
authority. Xo accomplish this has been reserved
for Grant and his invincible command. The na
tion's rejoicing telle the gratitude tuey have se
cured and the honors they have won. it Is right
that we should all rejoice over the auspicious
events we have met to celebrate; right we should
join our congratulations with lho?e of every loy
al hanrt in the land over the downfall of the wick
ed rebellion thatbas shed so mnch patriotic blood
ano treasure; right we should honor with our
nod fervent gratitude our noble armies and the
navy that have given ns so many victories; and,
above all. it is right, and onr highest doty, to
wnifp onr grateful thanks to Almighty God lor Ills
preservation of ns as a nation, Ihr the strength
I and courage He has given to onr dafenders on
! land and sea, and for the glorious triumphs of our
arms, which have insured the death of the rebel
lion and the frill restoration of the authority
of the Government throughout tbe length ana
breadth of the land. Let us not foreel lu our re
jolclngthat, a* freely at we have poured out oar
treasure ana copiously as has been shed- the blood
| of onr sons ana brotners tn the defense oftbe
I Government, they would have availed nothing

i our darkest hours and directed all our efforts to
Hi.« Rre^ t . purpo ? e of restoring the nation in this
hour of triumph; and we can well afford to oe
B ?‘ lct lt I,e carefully borne in
mind that the only-magnanimity we can farther
exercise must be that which will secure to the
nation permanent peace and universal freedom
throughout the land as the batis of such peace.
In the Interests of slavery the rebellion had its
origin and support. There mn*t be no more
slavery on this continent henceforth andforever
We mn»t be a nation of freemen and of freemen

Washisoton, Apnl 10.
Gen. Butler, upon .being called out, spoke in
substance as follows:
Fellow Citizen* :—I am profoundly grate fnl,and
thank yon once and that you hare called
upon me to Join yon in your congratnla
Vena upon tbli great triumph of
our arms, -which conquers and has
snljutatcd finally a most heinous rebellion
aramst the American people. The surrender of
Lee and hts army pats an end to this traitorous
war, waged to overthrow the Government. .Even

sworn to protect onr flag, obtaining a livelihood,
honor and promotion under it, children of tho
nation, who without justification, excuse or palli

struck down the flag, used the knowledge ob
tained in the tatl* n’a.school to break down the
Government that nurtured thefiTand the nation
which honored them, and have now ceased an un

of money, and hundreds ol thousands of llveslost.

eubrned by the valor of our soldiers whose com
rades they nave starved in loathsome prisons ?
(Cheers *nd cries of “Hang everyone ot them,”
••hang them,” “give them a. rope”]. In the fu
ture, danger to our liberties can come only from'
mad ambition of those In the army who may con
spire agalnet the life of the nation. Shall we not
by example treat every officer who deserts the flag,
ibat he shall suffer tho same penalty for desertion
which the Government inferred upon many of
our soldiers fortlie tame crime?
What shall be done with those whom the peo
pie North and South once delighted to honor:
who, with the trnth of God npon their lips but
Ucaecnin their hearts, sat in yonder Capitol In

Nzw York, April 10.—The Herald's correspon
deat recounts the pursuit of Lee's army. The 24th
corps reached near Black's and White's Stations,
on the South Side railroad, on the morning of the
s?h, with Qens. Grant and Ord. The 6th corps and
cavalry pushed on to Jettcrpville, on the Danville
r*Hroad,ard arrived wlthoatauy fighting nntlt the
nlghiof the 4th. The 2d, 6th and7th corps were
following closely in their tear, and by,the night
of tfce sth they were all up on the Danville road
and the 24th corps up to Burkesville Janet 03, It
appears that Lee ordered that portion of his army
thst was cut off by onr piercing tils left on Sun
day, to join him at Amelia Court Bouse, fearing
>lo'nave them attempt to reach Barkesville,
sod so on to Danville. When Gen. Grant
reached Nottoway Court Hon*e. a staff officer ar

and made important captures. Our column had
Intended to go into camp, but Grant thought Lee’s
only hope was in forced marches, aod he there*
foie o'dercd the advance continued. The men,
who hod already trumped twenty mil is, on being
informed of the stirring news from Sheridan,
clamored to march all night, and started off with
cheus. Whenever Grant was recognized, as he
rode along the Hue, the delight of the soldiers
wts expressed in the most enthusiastic manner.
As one Division exhausted itself in cheering, an
other would take it up, and so it went all along
the whole colomn.
Soon another dispatch was received from Sher
idan, and its contents were such u-> to cause Grant
to leave the road and cut across the country to
Sheridan's headquarters. On tbe night of the
sil>; the army lav in Hoc of battle, stretching
across three or four miles of country, and facing
JctcrsvlUe. Custar'a division of c*valry lay bo
the right flank, and McKenzie's on the left. The
infantry was formed with the 6th corps on tbe
ncht, tbe Stb In the center, and tbe 2d on the left.
During tbe night Lee moved off many of his
trains, and it was fearca he would elude this col
umn. Ocd was to march in the morning towards
Lynchburg and cut off his retreat to any point
tonlh ol that. . , , „
Tbe whole army in the morning moved five
miles on the road to Deatonvllle. In the forenoon
the 2d and 6lh corps succeeded in falling upon
Gordon's corps, guarding Lee's army in the vi
cinity of Deatonvllle, stampeding a portion of it,
and making many captures of men and material.
Gordon tome up one position after another on the
hill tops, and succeeding in retarding oor pursuit
to a limited extent. . , , ,
Refugees and deserters stated that the rebel
army was falling to pieces. A refugee al»o said
trains were running from Richmond to Daoviile
all day, and that Jeff. Davis and Cabinet reached
there in the afternoon and were taken to the re?l-‘
deuce of Me* Sutherland. This refugee also stye
Beauregard telegraphed that Stonemau was on
th-j Danville and Greensboro railroad, tearing it
up between those places.
The Herald's correspondent from the cavalry
recount the movements of this arm of the service
m pursuit of Lee. Their rear guard was over
taken, numbering 320, strongly intrenched, across
Namogcne Creek, having destroyed the bridge
and felled trees across the ford to impede pur
suit. On advancing, the enemy opeced lire, which
was returned with vigor. They were finally
shelled from their position, and a number of men
were at once dismounted, the obstructions re
moved. ana the command crossed. The road was
strewn with all sorts of munitions and de
bri" Cannon and ammunition were also
discovered secreted in the woods. Pushing on,

Wasdisotox, April 10.—Reliable information
has been received from a gentleman who left
Richmond yesterday, that Gen. Shepley, by order
of the President, has given safe conduct to Sena
ator Hunter, to come sod go from that city. He
la supposed to be on hla estate in Essex county,
fifty miles from Richmond.
There were no prayers offered In the churches,
yesterday, for the President, and, of course, none
for the Southern Confederacy. The citizens gen
erally regard the war as over, and further resist
ance, therefore, as unwise.
Thcßlrhmond Whig ofSaturday says: “The
statement that there would be a meeting last
evening of ench member.-of the Virginia legis
lature as still remained In the city was not strict
ly correct There was no meeting ol the Legis
lature or others but simply an informal confer
ence and consultation of private individuals,
among whom were members of the Legislature.
The motive of these gentlemen coming together
was to bear from Judge Campbell the terms upon
which Pieaident Lincoln had expressed himself
as willing that Virginia might return to the
Union, and Messrs. J. R. Anderson, David J.
Bury, Aatbonls P. Tyler, and 11. W. Thomis wore
appointed a committee to Inf;rtn the Legislature
ana Gov. Smith of President ! tacoln's terms,
and Judge Campbell was requested to accompany
the committee, who were to leaVo the city so soon
as passports conld bo procured. Uwassald tohe
probable that they would get off this morning.

Pro* ident Lincoln's terms as our information on

moth opposition drove tbe enemy from tho strong
fortifications which guard the approaches to the
magnificent railroad bridge spanning the river at
this point Tbe bridge Is upwards of one hun

were made by the 2nd corps to
drive them from their naturally strong position..
The enemy tried bard to cat his way through our
lines, hutwllhalways fatal results. During the
day the 2d division wa; detached and sent down
the railroad to seize Ptrmenmlle. They accom-
Ellshed this very quickly. To-morrow we will
