TUESDAY, APRIL U,1805>
TBE ZtBILiTION.
tyisUltraUy true that yesterday the peo
ple-pf Chicago turned out en masse, Nothing
like it was ever before witnessed in our
streets. Where the vast multitudes all came
from was the wonder of every observer. It
would be no exaggeration to say, that la a
.radios of two-thirds of a mile, whereof the
Court House-was the center, there were in
the procession and bn the streets, and In the
public square, not less than one hundred thou
sand men, women and children, participating
In the carnival of joy. It seemed as if the
fountains v>f the great deep were broken up
cud poured forth\helr Hoods. The surren
der of Lee and / his army was of itself an
event sufficient to evoke a great popular
demonstration,- bnl it was the belief that im
.mediate,honorable and enduring peace would
follow the surrender which caused the tre
mendous outburst of Jubilation, and Impelled
the whole population to quit their bnslnes
and " flood the streets, and shout,
sing, laugh, dance, huzza and cxy
for very gladness. There are several sorts
■of intoxication; that seen yesterday was In
toxication of Jjy. If grave men acted like a
parcel of hoys broke loose from school. It
wai because a heavy load was lifted from
their hearts. The Nation’s cause was won.
The Republic was saved and free. s The val
ley of the shadow death had been safely
crossed; tbe blood of their sons would how
cease to be shid; the terrible struggle was
coded ; the slaveholders revolt was crashed
out, and the beloved Union, niter passing
through the fiery ordeal, was redeemed, regen
erated and disenthralled. These were
the reasons that drew together and
caused an impromptu celebration of
one hundred thousand glad souls,
After four years bf awful strife free Gov*
eminent is saved, the right of the majority
to rule is vindicated, and tbe duty of the
minority to submit to ihe popular will con
stitutionally expressed, it enforced. And
Republican Government justly administered,
is proven 10 be the strongest form of Gov
etntmnl crer devised by man. The war has
shown that the people, when acting together
in behalf of human equality, constitute the
dominant power of the S’atc. They are able
to crush any aristocracy or oligarchy that
plots or conspires against their rights;
The strength of ihe resolve to put down
the rebellion at whatever cost of blood and
treasure could be seen in the spontaneous
jubilation of the people. It was like the
steam of a herculean locomotive, being blown
eff when it reaches the end of its journey. It
was that pent-up power that propelled the
engine. The tumultuous raptures of yes ter
day was the sudden letting loose of tbe feel
ing which for four years has nerved the heart
ol the people to fight on and to hold out
and when tbe first bom fell, to send to the
• battle the second and the third bora. -Tt was
this unconquerable spirit in ibe common
]>cople to save their Union, unconditionally,
which won the contest. .It was this hhrh re
solve that caused Chicago alone to contribute
twcnly-two thousand of Tier sons to the war
for the Union, the State of Illinois two hun
dred and thirty thousand, and the loyal
Stalqs more than two millions of men to
combat treason and oligarchy; and while this
love-of liberty and equal rights animates tbe
breasts of the mosses, the grc£t Republic can
' not be destroyed by human foes.
END OF TBE WAR,
Events thicken go rapidly toward the great
consummation for which the loyal people of
the United States hare labored and fjught
for nearly four years, that what we write one
hour maybe rendered stale by the revelations
of the next. Hardly had the community re
covered from the news of the capture of
Blchmcnd and Petersburg, when we learn
that Sheridan and Grant have got the start of
Lee in the pars nit, that they arc to the south
and west of him, cutting him off effectually
from Danville and from Lynchburg.
Then comes the stirring news that Sheridan
has captured Letts entire left wing, six Gen
erals and 18,000 men.. Next the surrender of
Lee himself with the army of Northern Vir
ginla electrified the country. Now we arc ex
pecting impatiently the surrender pf John
ston with 40,000 men, -dissolving the last
vestige of rebel mili ary .strength.
/ A friendly anxiety is also felt for the per
'aonal welfare and safety of Mr. Jefferson
Davis now fleeing and not yet caught. He is
spare in body, but the nation cannot afford to
spate his body. He can slip through a very
small knot hole, but accursed he the hand
that shall not hold him. Has he succeeded
in getting around our army, or have we dis
tanced him as well as Lee? Can he get to
Danville or join Johnston ? If so will he at
tempt so hopeless a task as to continue the
fight? Can he cross the Mississippi or run
onr . blockade so aa. to escape from
thejeountry f Will he prefer to surrender as
a prisoner or be caught as a fugitive? The
next sensation will probably be the capture
of Jefferson Davis—and then the question
“what shall wc do with him?** These sug
gestions, and the speedy steps which the
* present aspect of military affairs will compel
the rebels to take to get back into the Union,
will fill the corning thirty days with sensa
tlonshardly less startling than those through
which we are now passing. These are our
joyfhl hours of transition from war to peace f
amid a whirl of events as rapid and startling
as those with which four years ago we drifted
from peace into war. The roar of artillery,
the blaze of bonfires and illuminations are
henceforth the order of the day. Soon the
glram of the returning bayonets of onr brave
boys In blue** will flash in long lines through
our streets amid tearful eyes, and attended by
every manifestation of excitant amd grateful
. joy. Then the last of the great pageants of
the mighty “war for the Union’* will be over,
and the great rebellion will have passed into
history, leaving the nation greater, wiser,
richer and morc p r werfal than it found IL
So much for the prophecies of the London
Time* that" the great Republic Is dead.*’ So
much for the pomp with which four year! ago
the rebels throughout the South in the name
of slavery buried the Stars and Stripes. So
much for the falsehood of the Chicago Con
vention that “our four years of war** (not
yet expired) “are a failure.** So much lor
McClcVan** statement that the resources of
statesmanship are to be exhausted to inake
peace with rebels In arms. So much for Pen*
dlelon*£ policy of “ parting with our sister
States so kindly that they would forever be
touched with the remembrance.** The Be
public lives. Union, Liberty and Peace arc
_,all secured.
TBOrCXITS FOB THE HOCB.
“While every loyal heart saw clearly that the
evacuation of Richmond was the sore prelude
to Lee’s surrender, a few “sccesh” sheets
like the New York JV'cirr and Chicago Times
still sneered at it as **-an incomplete victo
ry,” a barren triumph, like Halleck’s cap
ture of Corinth, or even a masterly stroke of
gtulus in Lee to “ draw Grant away from his
base.” Even the subsequent capture by
Shirifan of Lee’s entire left wing, six Gene
rals and 18,000 men, did not shaxe the Cop
perhead faith in their crack hero, Robert E.
Lee. We suppose that now that the balance
of Lee’s army has gone—** book, line and
sinker ” —these Northern organs of the rebel-
Hon will pin their (tying hopes to the remain,
of 40,000 men under Johnston. As
-we stall probably receive news of the surren
der of that army within a few days, perhaps
hours, there will only remain the Copperhead
•- Shibboleth, ** you have conquered the armies
but yon cannot subdue the people. The peo
ple will never submit to the Union until you
give them by diplomacy all they endeavored
to obtain by fighting.”
Bat the loyal people who have proved equal.
to the task of carrying this country through
the war wilt hardly ask the assistance of
either rebels or Copperheads to arrange the
teixns of settlement. # Thcy have vidicated
the authority and power of the Government
against the predictions of those who within
six months of the triumphant termination of
.the war declared it a failure. They whipped
them in November as they have now whipped
the rebels. - They ncognize in the two the
same identical foe, except that the rebel is
bravf, tbe pcacc-sneak cowardly; the rebel
open—the Copperhead disguised; the rebel la
consistent—the a smile on
his lace and a dagger In his band. Both bare
done their utmost to dissolve tbe Union*
The rebel had he lived at the North would
have been a Copperhead. Tbe Copperhead at
the South would have been a rebel. Tbe
difference Is merely one of dimatc. not char
acter, ...
' Tbe moment they get % chance to vote to
gether they will do It. The loyal people of the
country will be cautious in giving them the
chance.
Let this principle be laid down, therefore,
as fundamental, vir: that those whose loyal
old have been competent to bear qj through
the war will prove competent to bear us on
to peace. We need no oi&dous advice from
any who have denounced our war as a “ lafl
oar Government as a “despotism,” and
our armies as 44 mercenary fclrdllngs,* bought
up like cattle for tbe shambles” (secesh
Times); our Generals as inferior to those of
the rebels. These worthies have staked and
lost. Hod their counsels been followed we
should now have a divided Union instead of
a. crushed rebellion. They who betray their
country’s cause dating war are not needed
(or Its government during peace.
COIHF&TiSATGD BMINUITATION,
Already the Coppoihe&ds are insisting be.
catee Mr. Lincoln before isralug bis EmancL
pa?ion Proclamation, offered the rebels a
plan of ccmpcnsattd emancipation, which
was scoffed at con temptuondy by the rebels
and Copperheads at the time, that therefore
Mr. Lincoln and the Union party ought now
to pay the rebels for their slaves. We
think the country will sec a vast difference
between paying the rebels for their slaves in
XBC3 when they were slaves, and paying for
them now. when they are freemen, who have
beeu'fbr twb yearn illegally held la slavery
by the military power of Jeff. Davis’ armies,
but who are now entitled to 'freedom in fact
as they have heretofore been in law, by vlr
lue of the destruction of those armles by the
military power of the Government. Tne reb
els cannot eat’their cake and have U7 They
can not spurn compensated emancipation at
a time when we could have afforded
to pay for the slaves, and when emancipation
has taken place ask,thcNatlonio pay themfor
what they no longer own. Before losing the
scores of thousands of lives, and sinking the
hundreds of millions of dollars which have
been lost and sunk since that offer was made,
we might wisely offer the rebels compensated •
emancipation. Having compelled us to,buy
tbclr slaves with blood, let us hear no more
of any proposition to pay for them in money
also. Whatever money we may have to spare
may more wisely be given to our soldiers and .
sailors than to the slaveholders. - The Cop*
perl ends are usually vigilant and in time In
looking after rebel Interests, bni on the ques
flon of compel sated emancipation they were
a trifle of three years too slow. They should
have advised the rebels to accept the offer
when It was mode. As it is, it is hard to see •
wby the slaves have not a right of action
against their late masters for labor and aer
vices rendered since they became free by Mr.
Lincoln’s proclamation. '
JOB* I* SCRUFFS, ESQ.
On Friday last, one day before the Repub
lican city Convention was held, the name of
John L. Scripps, Esq., was mentioned by
some of his friends, without any suggestion
or agency of hia own, as a candidate for
Mayor.. Inasmuch as Mr. Scripps did not
court yto any person connected wilh this
office, (with whom, it is well known, be has
important business relations), any bint that
he was a candidate for the position, we pre
sume that he did not make the slightest effort, ■
directly or Indirectly, in his own behalf. The
result In the Convention Is probably the most
gratifying compliment that could have been
awarded to him by the Republican party of
Chicago. On the informal vote Mr. Scripps
received a plurality of all ihe votes east, and
vety nearly a majority of the whole Conven
tion, and It was only by the friends of the
two other candidates uniting that he failed
to receive the nomination. In view of the
fact that the names of the other
before the Convention had been busily can
vassed for some weeks,.while Mr, Scripps
was not known to his most intimate friends
as a candidate until a few hours before tbe as
sembling of the Convention, the heavy vote
which he received certainly speaks volumes
for the esteem In which he is justly held by
his fellow-citizens, it is Lordly necessary
for us to add that as we were not consulted
Id reference to Mr. Scripps’ candidacy, neith
. er has he been consulted with reference to
this article.
Boatmen 9* Criebiatlon at LaSriln.
The boatmen at la Salle had a beautiful and
attractive celebration of the great/victory, at
that place on Tuesday. Fifty-four canal boats
and tbe si earner St. Joseph, lying iu the basin,
were brilliantly illuminated, and, viewed
from the hill, presented an imposing sight.
Judging from the vast concourse of people
that assembled to witness tbe display, it
meet have been fully appreciated and ad
mhed. The boatmen, numbering about 200,
formed in true military procession, headed by
the “flag of tbe free,’’ and commanded by
Lieut- Shotshell, who has seen three years
service—ln fact, quite a number of them are
veterans who have seen service, and fully ap
preciated the importance of the day they cele
orated—marched through the principal streets
firing salutes, singing patriotic songs, and
cheering for our brave officers and soldiers
who are now dealing such stunning blows to
Jeff. Davis and his dastard crew.
An Eugtbh Elopement*
The English papers bring details of an
elopement from a “ little market tows on the
borders of Hampshire,** One of the parties
was a young gentleman closely related to a
royal personage, a student at a military aca
demy receiving the usual education afforded
to cadets. This young person became en
amored with a rustic beauty, poor,but re
spectable. There were social and parental
obstacles to a marriage, so an elopement was
decided upon. The parties left the village
by the train and went northward. It was a
day or two before the truants were found,-
and then they were discovered in a small cot
tage before a turf Are, at breakfhst, and mar
ried. A ccmpromise was effected, and the
lather of the gentleman, a. clergyman in a
high position In the Church of England, at
first highly indignant with his sin, ultimate
ly relented, and consented to pay their pas
sage to Australia, if they would agree to ex
pUte their folly by this species of exile. The
newly-married couple accepted the offer and
the atonement, and were speedily on the way
to their destination.
The Coles so Conteotersv In England.—
The Judicial Committee of the Fjfiyy Council
had delivered judgment in the celebrated case
of Bishop ColeiAo. Alter minutely recapitu*
lattag toe circumstances which led the Bishop
of Capetown to depose the Bishop of Natal,
the Lord Chancellor said: “As this ques
tion can be decided only by the Sovereign, as
bead of toe Established Church and ueposl
. tary of ultimate appellate jurisdiction, their
Lordships will humbly report to her Majesty
their judgment and opinion that the pro
ceedings taken by toe Bishop of Capetown,
and the judgment or sentence pronounced by
him against toe Bishop of Natal, are null and
void in law.**

Gen. Potter
[From the New York Evening Port]
There is, we fear too much reason to be
lieve that General Potter has died from the
effects of a wound received on Sunday. If
this be so, among the many Illustrious dead
who have fatten in the crowning struggle
which haa given us a country, none wlu be
more sincerely lamented. Brevet Major-Gen
eral Robert u. Potter was a son of Bishop
Potter ol Pennsylvania. At the outbreak, of
the war he was .a lawyer, with, fora young
man, a large practice. He left this city as
Lieutenant-Colonel of the Ffcy-flrst regiment
Ktw York volunteers, and saw his first ser
vice under Burnside in North Carolina. He
rapidly won his promotion to the colonelcy
ofhisrtgime&t, then to the single star, and
next to the double stars. For two years past
he has served In theNlnth corps, following Us
varied fortunes from the Potomac to' the
Cumberland, everywhere doing his duty mod
estly, faithfully, and bravely. At the time
of his death he was in command of a division
in that corps.
Experiences of a-Union Prisoner*

• VSIOK PEOPLE IX HICmiOXD. ■
There are two kinds of Union people now

GENERAL APPEARANCE OP THE CITT.
[The following dispatch came too late for
yesterday morning’s tdbion.]
The flag under which Washington served
once more floated* above' bis statue in
the Stale House square. Yankee bands were
playing National airs, negroes bad violated
the unwritten law of the capital and Invaded
the sacred, common. Cavalry guidons were
In front of the executive mansion of the Gov
ernor of Virginia - s‘aff'officers crowded tfic
portico, and tbe headquarters of Gen. Dcvens,
an old time New. England Democrat, com
manding the white troops in ihe city; within
these, were the first points one observ'd in
sailing out from tbe Spottswood to look at
Richmond from- the Virginia State House.
I naturally first entered *
THE STATE BOUSE.
In tbe rotunda within was another statue
of Washington. *On one hand a door opened
into the chamber of ihe Virginia' House of
Delega’es. On tbe other, that of .the House
of Representatives of tbe rebel Congress.
Each is a plain room furnished with pice
desks and splint bottom chairs. A few oil
paintings are on tbe walls, and the floor Is
covered with home-made rag carpets, and
abundantly spittoons. The
desks are filled with unoffered resolutions
and unpssscd bills. Around the walls are
piled coids of badly printed and worse bound
public documents.
NEW USES OP THE CAPITOL. -
Above is the chamber of the Virginia Sen
ate, now used by the- Yankee Provost Mar
shal of the city, and opposite is the chamber
of the Senate of the rebel Congress. Adja
cent are the rooms of the clerk of the house,
and of the House military committee, each
of which is strewn with a confused debris of
official papets, and from each of which I ob
tained important documents to be hereafter
lefernd to more at length.
GENERAL IDEA OF RICHMOND.
Taking the State House os a center, one
may readily fotm an idea of the late rebel
rapitol. Behind and below It runs Main
street, parallel with the James rivr- Be
low Mam and down the river, to the east
ward of tbe capitol, with the main portion
of the city, ore now a mass of still smoul
dering rains. On the right of the capitol,
lacing northward, is the large grey stone
double bouse, built and furnish d by tbe
State as the residence of its Governor. On
the opposite side is the United 'States
Custom House, used of late as the rebel
Treasury Dtpartment It is unin
jured, and now under guard. In
front are other buildings used by the Quar
termaster General and the Secretary of War;
and Icoklpg out, also upon the square, is Bt.
Paul’s Church, which reckoned Jeff. Davis
among its members and regular attendants.
A square further to the northward Is the
large house bought for Jeff. Davis, bv the
city of Richmond, when ihe rebel capital was
moved heieliom Montgomery, and off to the
westward arc the aristocratic portions of tbe
city—the burnt district.
IfClndunatlwere to He burnt clear from
Third street down-to the river, and from'
tbe western road up the river to Pendleton,
it would have lost about as much in propor
fitn to its size as Richmond has by General
Ewcll’spleasant diversions.
Within the burnt district were located the
wholesale stoics, the tobacco warehouses,
most of the great mills, many of the banks,
and some of the newspaper offices; in short,
it embraced nearly all ihe heavy business of
the city, together with many of tbe squalid
tenement houses of tbe poorer classes. All
the aristocratic portion of the city above
to the westward of the State House,
Is unbanned. From the hill- beyond
First street, looking oat upon Belle Island,
the rapids of the James are open to view, the
hkc of which one may well pray to be spared
seeing; for as far as the eye can roach, stretch
the lertllc bottom lauds that bonier the
James, green the growing wheat,and'
bounded on either ride with undulating for
ests, crowned hillsides, amid which may be
distinguished the fine old Virginia mansions.
To the left is the beautiful city, rich in the
stores of great cities, richer in its fair
women and brave men; richest in its
ancestral stories and noble history; all "this
the last four years most not, cannot blot out.
In fact, where should be the very flower and
-final concentration of this city’s wealth and
growth, arc a vast, unbroken stretrii of rains,
ciambling walls, yawning door*ways and tot
tering steeples.
Richmond is to-day a city of aristocratic
residences without the business heart that
should rapport them. It Is the glowing
cheek, ihe tripping air. the sparkling eye of
a glorious woman, without one pulsation of.
the blood that should feed these arteries.
tZTP. DAVIS’ HOUSE.
Prom the State House, it was natural to
hunt up Gen. Weitzel, and that took ns to the
late Executive Mansion of the rebel Presi
dent. It ia a handsome three-story double
house, ranking among the largest in Rich
mond, although, by no means, the finest, or,
indeed, the most eligibly located. A guard
paced to and fro on toe pavement under toe
flag that wared from toe window, and anoth
er bflmd the door with his roosket, while the
officer on duty was peremptory- in declaring
that nobody whs admitted there on any busi
ness. A card, however, soon gain
ed admission, and we were greeted
by General 'Weitzel and General Ship
ley, and ushered into their presence, in the
receptlcn room of Judge Campbell, late one
of toe rebel peace commissioners to the con
ference at Foitress Monroe. Of him and his
business there will be time to apeak here
after. For the moment 1 was more inter
ested in ebseiviog toe residence of the rebel
chief. The doorway through which wc had
entered was simple enough, but toe rear of
toe building was occupied is accordance with
a singular ftsbion that seems to prevail here,
with a large portico and a lofty colonadc.
Across this the windows looked out
into a well kept garden. The reception
room was elegantly furnished, the
carved Pallas marble mantels were
of exquisite workmanship, mirrors, curtains,
easy chairs, were all to match. From the re
ception-room folding doors opened into a
large and elegant parlor, fnrmshed in a cor
responding style. Everything was left pre
cisely as if Mrs. Davis had been gone but an
hour.' The card of the French Consul, and
those of some .Richmond magnates were ly
ing in a little vase. There was even music.
The ornaments on the mantles and the little
articles of rtrtu scattered about the rooms
were all arranged as usual. Up-staln too
same order prevailed. Tbs dining-room and
the kitchen were well supplied, and it is very
easy. .
THE VICE PRESIDENT'S RESIDENCE,
Ouihe opposite side of tlie street, and &
Utile to tfac westward, stands another bouse,
not ao I&ige as Davis’, but still a very com
modious and elegant residence, with a splen
did garden attached. It bore the name of
Crenshaw, one of the wealthiest people of
the city, on the little door plate by the bell
handle, bnt within the house was found the
hastily removed plate bearing the name of
Alex. H. Stephens, the rebel Vice President,
on It. He seems to have concluded upon a
permanent retlracy from Richmond on his
retu n from the Fortress Monroe peace nego
tiations. Bis inrnitnre was all removed, the
carpets were takrn up, and altogether, the
Provost Marshal, who had taken U
for bis mess, was disposed to grumble at his
quartets. Iherc was a curious question, too,
about the ownership. The French Consul,
whose flag was flying from a modest UAIe
bouse a square or two further west, on the
same street, came forward with a claim that
Mr. Crenshaw bad sold him ihb properly in
satisfaction of some old mortgage. Oar offi
cers, witfc their rude military sense of justice,
were not favorably Impressed with the Con
sul’s cla'm, and one of them rather irrever
ently remarked that he would like to see that
mortgage to see whether It had the proper
United Stateaintcmal rerenuestampsnponlt.
But a short distance from this is the resi
dence occupied by Mrs. Gen. R ibert E. Lee.
The citizens are all very anxious to tell us
that Mrs. Lee is an invalid, though on that
point there are some shrewd suspicious. It
is whispered that she peremptorily objected
to leave Richmond. At any rate she is far
safer here thanif surrounded by ber husband’s
veteran army. A guard is stationed at her
dorr to prevent Improper intrusion, and
strict orders have been given that all-proper
respect shall be shown her, and that she shall
be m no way molested or interfered with.
gov. extkx billy sunn
Leaving the deserted residences of the de
parted cabinet officers, we return naturally
to the state house square and the executive
mansion of tbe governor of Virginia, and
passing through tbe group of orderlies
at the galr-, and the staff officers, on tbe por
tico, we come suddenly into a group orladies
with laces not altogether unfamiliar—Mrs.

IRREPRESSIBLE tNSTITUTIOXS..
It will be known long before this gets into

In the person of its proprietor, has taken the
oath jinn been turned loose; that it resumed
publication the doy after our occupation, and
that it has sent for John Minor Botta to as
sume editorial charge.
It will be more surprising to many, how-
ever, to keow that the Theater opens out
sgain to-night with a full stock company,
and a favorite play underlined. Ckn. Wer--

to it, hut the v'rtuoua members of the press
have declined the kindly pressed invi-atious.
they are too busy fo< theater nolng to-night.
now THIS PEOPLE LOOK.
There have been none of the foolish efforts
to display spite at the invaders, either by
keeping out of sight, or by unladylike be
havior in the streets, which have attended
our occupation of other rebel cities. Agen
tial order, Issued during the confusion ofthc
first day, requested the citizens to remain
within doors for the present, and Ibis has
operated somewhat to thin the streets"baV
still ‘here have been plenty of the native
rebels visible all tbo time. Passing along
stiets, one notices scores of pretty faces at
the wlndows.v not too sedulously hid among
the cur tains, and in the western part of the
city there is apparentlyjhe usual appearance
of ladies on the streets. I found mvself at
firet cniionßly iraiohlng the stjlo of these
ladies dresses. It may interest you to know
os another triumph of their sex, that
tbe fashions were not blockaded. I didn’t see
Uic litile three cornered cockle shell abom
hratlonof a spring bopnet which New York
has decreed, - out there were plenty ot last
'printer’s Jaunty tittle plumed hats, with tue
short, coqnetish veils. J£id gloves were by
so means rare. Dainty gaiter boots abound
ed, and, wretch that I ato, I was guilty of
seeing above them white hose sur rouadtne
more than one pair of pretty ankles.
But these;were the wealthy. On tbe other
baud, some of the poor women wore dresses
that certainly came out of the ark. I saw
more tawdry calico in a half hour’s walk
than one could see all’day in Broadway.
Poor creatures who were evidently strug
glirg to be respectable, were out this warm,
sunny afternoon, sweltering in furs Every
thing else about them was cheap and shab
by, but they served at least to show that
they had seen better days.
But the sad feature of what lay patent to
every one’s observation In the street, was
that nearly every woman one met was clad
in mourning. 1 called on a number of ladlts
whom I knew through tbe day, and this
evening every one of them' was dressed In
black. Certainty four-fifths of all the weal
thy ladles In Richmond, ladies one is accus
tomed to speak, of as-being in society, arc
in mourning. If what Is to be seen on the
streets may be taken as an indication. In
the main,
THE MEN WERE WELL DRESSED.
The styles were a-lltUe antiquated. It was
evident that» good many were economically
wearing out their old clothes *, hut there was
little actual chubbiness except where shab
bloess is atwaysaxpected.

Ulluaii) Carious JPatli ana the Elec-
lorof deaie*
Some of the German journals affirm that
the Elector of Hesse has at length found his
master—not Count de Blamark, but M. UU-.
manu, the agent of Carlotta Paul. The im
presario having hired the Court Theater at
Cased, the Elector’s chamberlain mentioned
that of course his highness would have free
admission to his box. “ Not at all,” said M,
Ullman, “if he wishes to hear M’Ue Patti,
he must pfey.” “In that case,” replied the
chambonain, “you must pay for tho gas of
the theater.” '* That is your business,” was
the answer, “and if you do not light up, we
shall perform in the dark.” The functionary,
finding that he could get nothing out of the
director, went to inform his sovereign of the
Incredible audacity of the lessee. The Elec
tor, usually so prompt to’flymtoa passion,
only laughed and replied. “He is an ill-man
nered fellow, but he pleases me; we will
pay.” His highness seat fifteen napoleons
for his box, and had tho theater brilliantly
lighted.
Two of Stanton’s Joke**
'Secretary Stanton, the moment Richmond
fell, sent General SUas Casey there to com
mence tho military organization of iho color
ed men for the defense of the city and the
manning of the forts. II additional authori
ty is needed for this proceeding, a very good
lary can be found in the Confederate statute
books, which provides for the enrollment of
these same people.
Secretary S'anton did another .very odd
thing. Shortly after the Union prisoners,
were let loose from the foul dens of Libby—"
the rebel baslile and black hole—he turned
into that hospitable retreat as many of the
Confederate prisoners as were out April
house-hunting.— FMaddphia Frys*.

former existence,-serving only to recall their
glory. *Here dwelt; the Johnsons, Rectors,
Pikes and Ashleys. The houses and grounds
still exist, but not as their homes. The

He was sought out, and bis career opened.
His flue presence and brilliant conversation

many thousand dollars. Ab the mosey came
costly, it went with a truly roy&i indifference.
As (he prodigal he “wasted his substance in

His genius became debased. As Indian

A SKETCH OF (SEARRAL
LEE.
Arlington and Its .Proprietors.
fFrom the National Intelligencer.}
A visit to the Arlington mansion and sur
rounding; estate, a few days since, filled ns
with oppressive and melancholy reflections.
Four years ago Robert E. Lee, then a Lieu
tenant Colonel of cavalry in tho Union army,
and now Commander-iD-Chief of the rebel
army, was with his family in the happy pos
session of that magnificent inheritance. More
than one half of the estate, consisting of a
thousand acres, was covered with a splendid
forest of oak and other timber, and the rich
and productive fields adorned with the hand
of To-day what a change! The
veuerablcancestrai mansion, erected by the
honored son by adoption of the Father of his
Country, and tor half a century his cultivated
and Uelightftil home, Is now in the center - of'
a vast cemetery of those who haft* fallen in
the service of their country. Two hundred
and fifty acres of this estate eurronadUg the
mansion have been permanently appiopriated
for burial purposes by the government, and
enclosed by insubstantial ana handsome fence.
Nearly five thousand soldiers hare already
been there buried, aud the number is daily
growing larger. „
In 185S Mrs. Guatis, the mother of Mrs. Gen.
Lee, died In the Arlington mansion and was
buried in a sequestered and delightful grove
near the mansion; aud in 1557 Mr. Cnstis
died, and his remains were desposited by her
side, a vast concourse of persons of every
rank testifying their reverence for the de
parted by their presence at the obsequies.
That sequestcicd grove, thus selected by its
owner as the last restingplace for bimsclfand
his, has been in the tempest ot the times in
vaded, the forest has been transformed into
a field of the dead, aud the two marble col
nans marking tfie remains of George Wash
ington Parke Custis and Mary Lae Fitahugb,
his wife, now rise in the midst of more than
4,000 patriot soldiers’ paves. Nearly the
whole of the timber and wood has been swept
Lorn the entire estate and used for war pur
poses. The Frcedmen’s Village Is established
upon one portion of the land tuos cleared, and
it is all being put under cultivation by con
traband negro labor.
Mr. Casas Inherited this estate fromhU
father, who was the son of Gen. Wash
ington by a former husband. Soon after his
mCther died, in 1802, he, then about twenty
five years of ape- came here from Mount Ver
ne a. and with his young and hccomplished
wife took up their residence in the Arlington
mansion, which bo had then just creeled, and
which evermore was their beautiful and cul
tivated heme. The fruits of this union were
four daughters, all of whom died in infancy,
except Mary Custis, the wife of Gen. Robert
E Leo. Mr. Custls'fa’her, John Parke Coo
tie, was on Aido-de-Camp to Washington,
and died of a camp fever in 1781, contracted
at the siege of Torktown, at the ape of
twenty-seven years. He had married, at. nine
teen years of ope, Eleanor Calvert, of Mount
Airy, Md„ a descendant of the second Lord
Baltimore, when but fifteen years of
ape. and at twenty-three she was thus
made a widow with lour children. General
Washington hastened to Eltliam, Md., where
the husband was sick, only to see him in his
dying moments. This was the only surviving
child of Mrs. ‘Washtogti'D, the daughter hav
ing died someycata before. He was deeply
aflectcd, and, weeping, said to the mother:
“I adopt the two'younger children as my
own.” These were Eleanor Cusus, then two
and a half years of age, who died at seven
teen, of consumption', and George Washing
ton Parke Custis, then six months old. Gen.
Washington took unwearied pains In train
ing this son of his adoption, desiring to give
him a solid and liberal education; hut his ef
forts tailed. The son was avtrso to study,
though possessed of good abilities, and at
twenty-uireqyears of age married, and de
voted his life ana very large fortune, inherit
ed from bis father and mother, Jo agriculture
and peasant literary pursuits.
The mansion is now occupied by the officer
in command of the post and Iris subordinates.
The dining ball is used as an office. In this
room ate three old-fashioned book-cases, con
taining sr me four hundred volumes, princi
pally old books, broken sets, and of very
small value. The parlor adjoining the hall
is not occupied, the only article in it being a
mahogany sideboard, which camefromMount
Vernon. In the parlor beyond arc two sofas
snd six stuffed mahogany chairs, covered
with scarlet velvet, two marble-top tables, a
sideboard, and a piano stool, matching the
chairs. On the wails are several large coarse
portraits, and one or two fine oil paintings.
There are also two old engravings, of a clas
sical, mythological character, hanging with
.the rest The room in the southerly wing,
: and usi dby General Lee for his office, la now
used as a bt d ream, and all the upper part
otthemansion is med for a like purpose. The
building is not Injured. The llower garden
has been enclosed by a new fence, and is laid
out and tastefully adorned this spring.
The grave of each soldier is neatly marked
by a wooden slab at the .heacTand the toot,
painted white, inscribed withthename of the
soldier and his company and regiment, and
at a little distance three slabs have the ap
pearance of marble. The mounds ore to be
neatly covered with sod.

him I” One of the others drew bis revolver and
discharged Its contents Into his left shoulder; the
ehot passed through his lung and effectu jjy dis

Tbe Great Saoitary Fair.
The impression seems to prevail to some ex*
tent, that the necessity lor the forthcoming Fair
ia materially lessened by the recent victories,
which now promise the apeedj cloae of the war.
It is also reported that the Sanitary Communion
baa a ltr*e nnexpended fond, rendering aaneccs
aery any farther effort to fill its treasury. The
doty haa.boen devolved upon the nnderslgned to
correct these erroneous impressions by « state*
ment of facta. Upon Inquiry at headquarters, he
oacertained that about three hundred thousand
sick and wounded soldier* are nowin the hos
pital?, all entitled, of coarse, to oar practical
sympathy and timely ministrations. Surely all
true Wends of the soldier will contribute with
fenerous alacrity to tbe immediate alleviation of
is sufferings, and as fas as possible to the resto
ration of his health, impaired in the service of
his conntnr. The treasury or the Northwestern.
Sanitary Commission, like that of the Soldiers'
Home, was never more completely exhausted
than at the present time, and both need instant ef
fort for their replenishing. The donations to the
Fair are daily used, a* far as practicable, m
meeting the large demands from rue hospitals—
for instance three car loads are reported to have
been dispatched this day. Then the Soldiers'
Heat and Home, Which are to participate
in the receipts from (be Pair, com
mend themselves to the cordial aid of
every citizen at all familiar with their la
borious and unremitting care of tbe soldiers woo
reach Chicago. Any who may doubt tbo necessity
of further rid in the direction indicated, need
spend bnt a hall hour either at tbe rooms of the
Sanitary Commission or at tbe Soldiers* Home
and Best. to be thoroughly convinced of their
error, and to be prompted to hearty and zealous
co-operation In the good work.
The news which to-day eiectriflea the nation es
tablishes the fact that tula will he the last great
Sanitary Fair. The Treasurer keeps an exact
recoa4rf*f every dollar contributed, and fall and
satisfactory publication of til receipts will be dnly
made from time to time by the committee appoint
ed for that purpose. Let all who now rejoice in
the glorious issue of tbe war oni*e ia the “bene
fit” mat we propose giving to tho boys in bine.
Their relief is no charity, bnt a tiered duty which
they have a right to demand of os—it la butthu in
terest on that aebt of eratitnde to pay which the
nation acknowledges absolute insolvency. Whilst
processions, flags, bells and canned proclaim a
universal labile®, let not a grateftil people forget
the heioea now languishing in hospitals, nor fail
to provide homes for the disabled. If to-day wo
are Jostly proud of out nobio Bepnbltc, let ns
chcriih and nurse Its sick and wonnaed defend

We trust it Is cot necessary to apologize to the
mden of the Tamos* for the meagre display of
commercial matter lo oar column* to-day. The
capture of Lee and hia entire army was too much
for the business community, and by common con
sent the day was devoted to patriotic rejoicing.
The Board of Trade met as usual, but there was
nothing in the way of business done. The Stock
Exchange held one session In the morning, bat
adjourned for the day. At 12 o'clock all the
banka. Insurance offices, and wholesale and retail
stores were closed, but so Ito as related to trade
and commerce, they need not have opened at all.
It was a day of complete rejoicing and thankaglvl
Inn, and money and the markets bad to stand
aside.
Gold opened early In New York at U4, and
closed at Ip.m. at 145*. Here the market was

Tbe Board of Trade met as usual this morning
but there waa no attempt made to attend to basi
ne?a. Early a few thoughtless Individuals par*
cb&aed some No. 1 Spring Wheat at <LSS, bat oa
learning tbat It was designed to make the day one
of lejolciae, they were quickly cancelled, and tbe
merchants generally devoted themselves heart
and. eonl to the Jubilee.
/We have otaitted onr regular market report, for
the very good reason tbat there were no tran«ac
lions to report, and quotation are entirely nom
inal.
In oor local colsmns fall particulars will be
found of the proceedings on ’Change.
An fcTtnlng Exchange.
Movements are oa foot to establish an Evening
Exchange, for the transaction of a general busi
ness in Gold, Produce and Provisions. The latest
market reports from New YorkwiU be given fres
ol expense, and every facility will be extended ,
for obtaining the latest news. A room in the 1
Masonic Temple has been engaged, and .-In the
course of a week the new institution will be under
headway. Nearly all tbe prominent members of
the Board of Trade favor the movement, and have
already subscribed, and it will, withoat doubt,
prove s auccest. Tbe annual tax will be 135, mad
none bat members will be permitted to enjoy tbe
privileges of the new insmutien.

report,were3« head; shipped, none. Tbe entered
sales were 1,101 bead, ol 'which about 460 were on Gov
ernin'ot account, x
Yesterday there was a very active demand, and
reaVyprimetteck stiffened up and adv.nced slightly
In price. Ordinary grades were more active, bit at
previous fljmei. There were a few Eastern shippers
In the market yesterday and Saturday,wbosoight
only the kcst stock; hence tbe s.lght adv.ncs in that
quality. To eay comparatively nothing Is doing at
the yard lor three reasons, viz.: There la very
little *te:k lor sale, and that of poor quality;
buyers are waiting to see the effect that the
surrender ol Geo. Lee la going to h ;ve apon the mar*
ket, some arguing that U will daptcclate the price
in consequence of stepping the ftamensa cox sump
tion which the Government has herctof re taken.
Then, again, tbe drovers and buyers werenxrstly aU
cut to rejoice with our citizens over the glorious
"victory Or»nt-ed to u* by the bravery k( our troope
aad tie blesslagot God >
To sues the matter up in brief, we should say that
yesterday, it w< a active, with a slight advance on
good stock, while today net enough baa been done
to show the tone of the market.

The Cereal Craps of 1894 In Great Brltaiw.
The London J fart Lane Express gives an esti
mate of the crops of 18H, based upon special re
turns from all parts of the country, as follows:
The averages of grain are assumed to be as fol
low?: Wheat, 4 qra.; barley, 5 qra.; and oat*, 6
qrs. per acre. In regard to potatoes, there Uno
standard to gnjde ua; but this la of lees Import
ance, aa not more than three or four of the re
turns mention the amount, merely naming “aver
age, 1 ’ and “over 1 ’ or “under," as the case may
be. The following la the table of the actual re
mits:
Under atersge. Over average.

In looking ov-r iheao figures, the wheat crop
stands m a much betterposnlon than might have
been expected in regard to yield, the number of
returns u under average " being nearly balanced
by the over while the tall “ average “ crops
form more than holt the total. On tne oticr band,
Ihe quality of the grain of the late harvest I? su
perior on the whole to that of the harvest of IS&J,
as the weight Is above tho average.
These facts are gathered not only from the gen
eral tenor of the returns, but from every country
miller consulted on the subject, many of whom
declare that the qna'lty hu never been surpassed.
The Barlty crop la belter than the Wheat, there
being 215 over to 123 under average, while the
foil averages amount to 329, making 4rf3 against
123 deficient. The quality, however, varies con
siderably, and as ft Strong proportion ql the Par
ley crop will not be fit for malting, it most bo
used for fattening, for which there will be a largo
demand. The low price of thl» grain lathe na
tural consequence of the proportion of inferior
Quality, the beat kinds atlll bearing a price pro
•oordonate to thfti of Wheat, although a large
amount of foreign Barley Is arriving almost
weekly. The Oat crop was much tho moat defi
cient of the whole harvest, there being 333 returns
under against 43 over average, and only 133 ave
rages. The drought of the last summer appear*
to have affected this grain much more than the
Barley.
The potatoes goffered to 3 considerable otffi&l
00 (be very Jfgftt lands from tee-drought, so far an
the ylrlrt was concerned ; bat, ott the Other band,
the quality of the tubers never wan surpassed hi,
goodness; and the disease was so slightly devel
oped as tobe ofvtry little consequence to ih« gow
eral rrrut- Tbeqnaiiiy of the crop will mnkn
some amends for the deficiency la the yield, al
though toe number of returns or fc trader average**
Is 217. against 44‘over;’ but, *n the other hand,
the foU “average*' amoan' to 283; *o that we hare
MS «t*inst 217, with a very imal! proportion of do*
fectivo tubers, tm the whole, although the present
prices are og dn*t the farmer, there Is *ome reason
to hope that the depression U yielding, and iha
when the stocks of forelgu Wheat arc worked'
off in Improvement win taae p’ace. Importation
has, for the present, ceased, and b not Uk#!***-
be resumed while prices In the United Kln«ttoa
remain at the nowjcccpted standard. One cause
ot the low pnre of wheat is the fine quality of the
potato, wlrch baa to a larqo extent transferred'
the consumption, flrom ivheatan bread to theg
edible, of which as nnnaoat bres'h Is believed to
have been planted last season. Bo ibi», howoter,
as It may. the present depression cannot last for
ever, as the next change mast be for the better,
and the market Tor wheat and other grain assume
such a petition as will remunerate the grower
without oppressing the consumer.”
