Sho stood below me~where the vines Half hid the face so wodrous fair; The glanciug sunbeam left a ray Of glory on her golden hair! Her aweet brown eyes looked up to mine With a child's simplicity; Yet in their depths I fain had read More than a passing thought for me 1 The tiny hands and soft white arms Closely the trellis-work entwined; The rosy liiw held richer feast. Thun atiiuer clusters from the vine ! I stood and whispered, soft aud low. So sacred seemed the words to me. ' Kiss me!" I shook with sudden fear, And then 1 waited trustfully! Quick, like the glow of early morn, The blushes spread o'er etieek ami brow; She bends that fair and graceful head— Those browuest eyes are dewy now ! And then she raised to mine the lips That should la- mine for evermore! Aud all the earth, and air and sky Was glorious as ne'er before! Till hushed in silence of the grave, My lips with glad delight will feel The first warm kiss my darling gave 1 BULL RUN. After the Battle—Why the Confederates Did Not March on Washington. < It having been intimated in Hon. A. II. Stephens' new volume that Jeff. Davis "Wits responsible for the failure of the Con federate troops to advance after the victory of Manassas," it writer in the Jackson (Miss.) Clarion prints what he claims to be correct copies of original letters in his pos session in relation to that matter .is fol lows: Richmond. Va.. November 3, 1861. General J. E. Johnston, Commanding Department of tlie Potomac; Sir —Reports have l>ecn, aud are being, widely circulated to the effect that I pre vented General Beauregard from pursuing the enemy after the battle of Muuassas, and had subsequently restrained him from ad vancing upon Washington City. Though such statements may have been made merely for my injury, and iu that view their notice might be postponed to a more conve nient season, they have acquired impor tance from the fact that they have served to create distrust, to exeite embarrassment, and must embarrass the administration in its further efforts to reinforce the armies of the Potomac, and generally to provide for the public defense. For these public considerations I call upon you. as the commanding General, and as a party to all the conferences held by me on the twenty-first aud twenty-second of July, to say whether I obstructed the pur suit of the enemy after the victory at Mauasses. or have ever objected to an ad vance or other ivetive operation which it was feasible for the army to undertake. Yerv respectfully yours, etc., JEFFERSON DAVIS. IlEADqrAKTKRS, ('KNTRKVILI.K. November 10, 1361. To His Excellency the Presiileut: Sir—I have had the honor to receive your letter of the third instaut, in which' you call upon me, "as the commanding general, and as a party to all the conferences held by you on the twenty-first and twenty-second of July," to say: Whether you obstructed the pursuit after the victory of Manassas J " Or have ever objected to an advauce or other active operation which it was feasible for the army to undertake ?" To the first question I reply, no. The pur suit was "obstructed" by the enemy's troops at Centreville, as I have stated in my official report. Iu that report I have also said why no advance was made upon the enemy's capital (for reasons) as follows: The apparent freshness of the United States troops at Centerville, which checked our pursuit: the strong forces occupying the works near Georgetown, Arlington and Alexandria: the certainty, too, that General Patterson, if needed, would reach Washing ton with his army of more than 30.000 sooner than we could: and the condition and inadequate means of the army in am munition, provisions aud transportation, prevented any serious thoughts ot advanc ing against the capital. To the second question I reply that it has never been feasible for the army to advance further than it has done—to the line of Fairfax Courthouse, with its advanced posts at Upton's. Munson's aud Mason's Hills. After a conference at Fail-fax Courthouse with the three senior general officers, you announced it to he impracticable to give this army the strength which those officers onsidered necessary to enable it to assume the offensive. Upon which I drew it back to its present position. Most respectfully, votir obedient servant, ' J. E. JOHNSTON. A true copy: G. W. C. Lee, Colonel aud Aid de-camp. To the President. Look Out. Bovs !—It seems to have dawned upon the boys of Algiers (big and little) that the New Orleans Republican is live newspaper, desirable to read. So the Republican cautions tlie little boys against their habit of swimming in the Mississippi river amidst currents, eddies, logs, loose timber and old wharf posts. Besides the intrinsic danger of going under, there is the extraneous and contingent danger of being arrested by tbe police and locked up in tbe tlaboose. This hapjienod. last Sunday, to five little hoys, who, at eleven o'eloek in the morning, wore caught by the officer on duty and marched to the dismal coal hole. There they remained till late at night before they were let out. Keep out of the river, boys. Remember wliat your book says: Fresh Beef from Texas.—B y a notice in our advertising columns, it will be seen that tbe steamship Fire Fly, belonging to the United States and West India Fresh Meat and Fruit Company, will arrive here to-morrow with a cargo of beef. Probably she may do as she did before, bring a lot of fish and sueh small deers. If the company owning the Fire Fly con tinue their enterprise, of which there can be no doubt, there will be a material im provement in the quality of provisions in New Orleans, accompanied by an essen tial reduction in prices. J. W. Coleman, Esq., agent of the Erie ■ailway in this city, received a telegram yesterday from W. A. Bates, Esq., Southern assenger agent of tlie road, to the effect that the New Orleans excursion party is now in New Y'ork. Mr. Bates was with them since they left Louisville. Last Sat urday they were taken to the Grand Opera House to see the "Twelve Temptations." and on Monday they were invited by the controller of the road, James Fisk, Jr., to a trip to Long Branch on the steamer Ply mouth Rock. Altogether, they seem to have a supremely pleasant time. It is reported that the physician of an eminent public person has said that he is liable to die at any moment. The same may be affirmed of all men, with the addi tional assurance that they must die at some time. Yesterday was so hot that every passen ger in the streets carried about with him a portable bath, consisting of saturated clothing. An ex-teacher of our public schools, it appears, has been guilty of selling his un paid salary to several different parties. THE COURT*. Eighth District Cant—Role far Contempt and a tonbpm Dncm Tecnm. Board of Metropolitan Police vs. 8. N. Burbank.—The following rule has been filed before* Judge Dibble. On motion of J. R. Beckwith, for plaintiff, and on suggesting to the court that the defendant in this cause is in contempt of this court. That the writ of injunction issued in this cause commanded said defendant, among other things, to de liver to the Sheriff of this parish, all war rants and moneys in his possession, belong ing to said plaintiffs; that in response to 'll rule for contempt heretofore taken against hint in this cause, said defendant has deliv ered to the Sheriff only the sum of $537,940 25 in full value in cheeks anil war rants; and in further suggesting to the court that it appears by the official report of Antoine Dubuolet, State Treasurer, that said defendant unlawfully received and should have in his pcssession property over which plaintiffs have lawful control,'to the full amount of at least $603,189 51, either in warrants or in cash and that there is still in possession of the lefendant a sum ex ceeding the sum of $6J,245 33, which he re tiiins in contempt of tie order and writ of this court, and that lis alleged prior com pliance with the writ ia this cause was aud is, in all respects, partial and evasive. Therefore, it is ordered that the said de fendant, S. N. Burlank, show cause on Thursday, the fourteenth of July, at ten o'clock A. M., why he should not be com mitted to the Parish P-ison for the ]ieriod of ten days, by reason iif his said contempt of this court iu the disobedience of this order. In this case, also, or motion of J. R. Beck with. attorney for plahtiff, and on suggest ing to tlie court that oi the trial of the rule for contempt herein, it is important and necessary that certaii papers and docu ments in the possessim of the State Treas urer should be produted. Now, therefore, it is ordered that Aniline Dubuclet, State Treasurer, do be and ajpear in this court on Thursday, the fourteeith of July, 1870. at ten o'clock A. M., aid that he bring with him and pr&luee in emit a full, true und complete transcript of ill and till manner of accounts and transactitns between the State Treasurer anti the city' of New Orleans, in any moneys relating to the Board of Metrojiolitun Police, or any money or bonds received from ' the city ot New Orleans, in alleged payment of any apportioumen' made by the said Boaril of Metropolitui Police, and that he also bring with him am produce in court all receipts, neknowlcdgenetats anil other doc uments in his iM>ssessiui,allowing any trans fer or delivery of anjfgnds or warrants, checks or other vouches, to S. N. Burbank, in an alleged eharacte: of treasurer of said Board of MetropolitanPolice. aud any and all warrants, documeits or authority by virtue of which said lelivery or transfer was made, and that he >e notified thereof, toecond Distiet Court. Succession of J. H. liuier —In this ease tho deceased left n lage estate, and Mrs. A. S. Bailer and Mrs. Vilhelm Eberlin, as his universal heirs, wen put in possession of his estate by a juilgmut of this court, on the ninth of July, 1868. On the sixth of July. 1861*, one Mareelino Pouplin presented to tli court a document purporting to lie the las will and testament of the deceased, and clduied the property, amounting to about $50,000. The elaimuiit is a colored woman, a:d alleges that she was the wife of deceden. The adverse par ties took the ground hat deceased never had a wife, and that b the laws of this State, no intermarriage could have been made between the elaimnt and deceased. The case has occupied he attention of the court for some time pastand Judge Duvig nead yesterday decided imt the wall under which Marceliue Pouplin laimsis a forgery. Cailloux Blues Festival. On Tuesday evening, fie Cailloux Blues had rather a cool and staumuble sort of a jollification—a water m-ltn and ice cream festival, at the Lutkcan Hall, ou Gravier street, between Howarcand Freret. There was a large and pleasar gathering of both sexes, and the upper ail lower rooms of the hall, as well as the speious yard, had not more than enough roontbr the company. Among the invited gests were Postmas ter Lowell, Statioumater A. E. Barbier, Hon. J. A. Gray. Dr. C'eamer, and Captain J. Lewis, Metropolitan blice, fifth precinct. In the course of tin evening addresses were made by Colonel lowell aud Captain Lewis, both of which verc received with great applause. Thej told their hearers that the laws which pve them the rights and duties of citizenaip, imposed upon them, likewise, all the utics and responsi bilities of the citizen That while they should avail tliemsQlvesof the first, equally should they be prompt > accept the others. That now. in the time o peace, it was the duty of men to cultiv.te friendship and harmony among all clascs, so that, if ever the time should come vlien tho safety of their country demanded , all classes could stand shoulder to skouler in defense of their country's rights. The addresses were iterspersed with music and other ainuseients. and it was far iuto the small hours bfore the assembly broke up. The Cailloux Blues, »r whose benefit this festival took place, i uow completely organized, numbering, rak aud file, ninety eight men. The followig is a list of the officers: R. H. Isabelle, cotain; J. H. Har rison, first lieutenant C. A. Allen, second lieutenant: II, Washington, or derly sergeant; WilliamHerbert, Mitcliel Benard, William Davis, icrgeants: Nelson Peyton, John Smith. Tomas Anderson, Robert Smith, corporals. The company was first rganized in 1863, at the time the seeessinist General Ma grutler threatened a denuistration .against New Orleans. It was cotmanded by Cap tain Isabelle, the present emmander, and the full complement of the empany was made up in twenty-four hours. 4t this time they enlisted for home defens for sixtv days, but were ninety days in tfe field. New Orleans is represened in all sorts of transactions, and in every >art of this coun try and all the rest of tht vorld. It seems that Ames New Orleau circus showed at Huntingdon. Tennessee on the sixth in stant, aud in the mornig there was a pa rade through the streets The royal Nubian lion, an animal of great s;e, which is carried chained to the top of me of the cages, attended by his keeper, ti occasion of these street displays, exhibite signs of anger while being led to liis eag after the proces ion had returned. At a unexpected mo ment, and when the ktper was off his guard, the huge I least sprng upou him and bore him to the ground wb frightful force, seizing him by the shoulor and arm. Al most instantly several of he byestanders rushed up, and seeing the prompt action was necessary, drew thei revolvers and shot the tieast dead. Thitrainer was res cued and is recovering, s reported by a correspondent of the Nashdle Banner. At the present rate of trogress, it will take hut a day or two longr to put up the remainder of the three hunred street letter boxes, which are admitted a l»e the greatest postal improvement New Oleana has lately had. ALEXANDER *to BONDS. Disposition Mode of them—Mrs. Burke to Receive the Bead*. The New York Tribune of Saturday re ports the end of the Alexander bond# case: The examination in the case of tho Gardi ner family before Surrogate Hutchings, to learn the disposition of bonds in possession of Captain Alexander just before This death, was continued and closed yesterday. Tlie first witness was Mr. William Lockwood, called for the plaintiff by Mr. Redfield. Mr. Lockwood testified that he does business at Third avenue and One Hundred and Twen ty-seventh street, and has known Mr. Gar diner about two years; last summer he came to witness and asked him if he knew any one who wanted a note or mortgage cashed and at another time wished to purchase a house; in the latter part of summer or early in the fall he entered witness's office anil stated Captain Alexander had died at his house and had on his person bonds, and that his wife had cut the bug containing tbe bonds from his neek and handed them to Dr. Brockway: witness asked how much the hag contained, and he said about $7000 or $9000, and that Captain Alexander was speechless when Mrs. Gardiner was cutting the bag off his his neck, and beckoned her to put it back: witness said nothing at the time, but when Mr. Gardiner afterward came to his ofliee said that he hail got into trouble, and that Captain Alexander's daughter was suing him for the bonds, witness said to him, "There can be no trouble—if you have auy bonds belonging to Captain Alexander's daughter, yon had better give them up. Gardiner then said that Captain Alexander promised that he would give them some thing, hut did not say how much: when Mr. Gardiner first told witness of the cut ting of the bonds from Captain Alexander's neck, witness thought Captain Alexander had no relatives, but the second time ad vised him to give them up; and Gardiner replied that Captain Alexander had promised to give them something, aud that was the only reason he gave; previous to that he had come to witness and wanted to buy a bouse, aud when told of one that would cost $4500. he said it was too small witness* supposed he wanted to live in the house, aud dul not want it for speculation. On one occasion Gardiner said he was going to make a man of his son-in-law. James W7 Graff: witness iiail not known the Graffs be fore Captain Alexander's death, and sup posed Gardiner whs going to help Graff pe cuniarlv: about one month after witness had testified before the Coroner. Gardiner eame to his office and wanted to explain some thing, and that what he, Gardiner, intended to say was that if he got this monev he wanted to buy the house; witness said he did not wish to discuss the subject, and would not hear anything about It. Mr. Gardiner said that very onen in the even ing Captain Alexander and himself would have several mugs of ale, some cheese, and other things, anil then the Captain would speak of giving him something, and when he. Gardner, asked why not give him some thing now, Captain Alexander would reply, "There is plenty of time." William P. draff, recalled and examined by ex-Judge Fullerton, testified that he had it consultation with liis brother at which his brothers write was present; he supposed the subject of the consultation was the bonds. [The witness here wished to explain his po sition tis counsel, anil, as the legal adviser of his brother, refused to answer questions put to him by counsel.] The bonds, witness thought, had been brought to liis office by his brother after the death of Captain Alexander, were never directly in his pos session, but had been put in liis* safe by liis brother, who afterw'ards took them away: witness might have taken them from his brother's hands, and seen the backs, but bail never seen tbe faces, aud did not know whether they were coupon bonds or not; witness believed there were four bonds, but never saw them after, nor any other bonds, nor was he consulted respecting other bonds: his brother George hud never consulted with him regarding any bonds, nor did he believe that he knew anything of auy bonds except what had been' testified to on this trial: witness had never sold disposed of any bonds for any of his brothers, but understood that' the bonds hud been deposited with his brother Adrian, who lives ui New Bruns wick: nothing had been said about the pro priety of removing the bonds from the State: his brother James had said nothing about removing them, and if any sueh sug gestion was made it came from witness, as he did not care to be their custodian in case any trouble might arise: he remembered no suggestion, although there might have been sueh idea in witness' mind, hut he recalled no words to that effect: he had never com municated with his brother Adrian in rela tion to the bonds, aud no other person hut his brother and his brother's wile had ever consulted him with regard to these bonds: witness had never bought real estate, made investments nor received deposits from any of his brothers. Mr. C. R. Thompson, a clerk in the em ploy of the Union Trust Company, recog nized a document shown him as court cer tificates, anil given by the Union Trust Company for bonds deposited with it in a civil suit; the bonds deposited were as fol lows : ® Virginia State bonds, each...... ............$1000 4 Missouri Paeiiic Railroad bonds, each....... 1000 1 California State lwmd........................ 1000 1 Brooklyn Permanent Water Loan bond..... 1600 1 United States five-twenty bond.............. 100 The last coupons an the Virginia State bonds were Jttlv. 1858; ou the Missouri Pa cific Railroad. California. Brooklyn YVater Loan and Unit-oil States bonds, July, 1869; these bonds had been deposited Mu v 19, 1869. Documents were then presented to the court revoking and annulling the powers of Mr. Wheeler H. Peckham. as adminis trator of the State, and appointing in liis place Mrs Virginia C. Burke, who was called to tho staiul, and she testified that she was the executrix of her father's estate. She arrived in this city about a year ago last April, having received a telg'ram an nouncing the death of her father, the first and only information she had ever received, and two or three days after left home, anil arriving in New York, went with Mr. Wheeler H. Peekliam to the Gardiners, and saw Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner anil Mr. and Mrs. Graff, and asked for her father's ef fects; was conducted up stairs and shown her father's trunks, both of which had been broken open, and nothing left but some old things, sueli as boots, shoes, and and an old umbrella; she asked if tliut was all, and they said "yes;" witness then asked if Captain Alexander hud not something about his neck, and Mrs. Gardiner hesitated, when Mr. Peckham impatient-lv remarked it was not a piece of furniture; Mrs. Gardiner then said it was a bag—she didn't know what was in it. as she had taken it to Judge Beebe, and said nothing whatever about Dr. Brockway. Mr. Redfield, counsel for the plaintiff, an nounced that they rested their ease, and tinder the fifth amt sixth sections of the act thought they were entitled to relief. Surrogate Hutchings said that the case presented unusual features -of atrocity to ward Mrs. Burke, and if there was no order of the Superior Court directing these bonds to be placed in the Union Trust Company, he should order them to he tiu'ned over to the executrix on Monday. Mr. Andrews, counsel for the tlefense, wished to know if he was not to have an opportunity to be heard, as his argument uiight be hitch as would convince his Honor that it would be wrong to do so. The Surrogate replied in substance as be fore, at which the defense was by no means pleased. Throughout the trial Mrs. Burke prompted the counsel, instructing them to ask certain questions, and several times cotuisel applied caustic remarks to each other, making necessary the Surrogate's admonition to re store order. Very appropriate is the quaint device traced upon a herdsman's Bword, which has been in the museum at Salzburg, Austria: "Whoever finds anything ere it is lost, or buys ere it is for sale, dies ere ho falls sick!"

House .—A conference committee has been ordered on the army and civil appropriation bills. The conference committee reports on the tax and tariff bills were adopted, anil goes to tbe President for his approval. Tlie following calls indicate its char acter. Mr. Selienek said: "The Senate having accepted the report of the con ference committee, it now rested with the House whether the bill was to become a law. He said, that by a calculation based upon tbe receipts of last year, tho bill as it now stood would effect a reduction in the taxes of the country. He complained that the House, by concurring in the first amend ment of tbe Senate, which struck out one half of the bill, had put it out of the power of the committee to do anything in relation to a large class of taxes. By adopting that amendment the House have released the bankers nnd brokers from special taxes, and Wall street, from which millions of revenue could have Iteen col lected without iqjury to the material inter ests of the country, were by that action made free of tax. The lotteries and the atres were also made free by another por tion of the bill, which had been stricken out. The conference committee were pre vented from providing for any security in the printing and issuing of revenue stamp?, which amounts to $100,000,000 annually, aud for the embezzlement of which there was no responsibility. He felt thnt the House had acted hastily and injudiciously iu accepting that amendment. Mr. Brooks, of New York, addressed the House: claiming that while there has been a reduction of the duty on tea, sugar, coffee, spices and some other articles, the duty had been increased on a large number of articles, and was proceeding to enumerate some of them, when he was interrupted by Mr. Benjamin, of Missouri, who reminded him that the duty on hemp, an important product of his State, had been reduced thirty per cent. Mr. Brooks: Oh, well, hair pins are re tained. Mr. Benjamin: Yes, but hair pins do not grow in the soil of Wisconsin. Mr. Brooks reviewed tbe bill by items, aud claimed that it had been framed in the interest of the manufacturers, at the ex pense of the laboring classes. He gave no tice that the people would not submit to tbe bill, und that its speedy revision would lie demanded. Even the colored jieople of the South would soou be sufficiently educated to understand that they are taxed on their shovels, their hoes, anil even on their spool of cotton. A motion to suspend the rules, to take up the Texas and Pacific Railroad bill, failed by yeas 75, nays 103. A similar motion for tbe Federal amnesty bill, by a vote of 101 to 74. Tlie following is tbe tax bill as passed: fix ou copper of all kinds, 3 cents per pound ; teas of all kinds, 15 cents : molas ses, 5 cents per gallon; on tank bottom, syrup of sugar cane juice, melmlu, concen trated meluda and concentrated molasses, 1 Mi cents per pound; on all raw or nniseo ado sugar not above No. 7 Dutch standard in color, and on syrup of sugarcane, melada or concentrated melada and concentrated molasses, l : *i cents per pound; on aU raw or muscovado sugar above No. 7 Dutch standard in color, and not altove No. 7 dutch standard in color, 2 cents per pound; on all other sugar above No. 10 dutch stand ard in color, and not above No. 13 dutch standard in color, 2H cents jier pound; on all other sugars above No. 13 dutch standard in color, and not above No. 16 dutch stand ard in color, 2 3 5 cents per pound; on all sugar above No. 16 dutch standard in color, and not altove No. 20 dutch standard in color, 3F 4 cents per pound; on all sugar above No. 20 dutch standard in color, aud on all refined loaf, lump, crushed, powdered and granulated sugar, 4 cents per pound. Tlie bill provides that the Secretary of tlie Treasury shall, by the regulations, pre scribe and require that samples shall be taken by the inspectors from hogshead, box or other package iu such a manner as to present a true average of tlie contents of the package, and from a sufficient number of packages of the same murk in each and very invoice, so that tlie samples ou which the classification is made shall lie a fair average in quality of the sugar imported under that mark, the classification to be adjudged on tbe entire mark accordingly. The weights of sugar imported in casks or boxes shall be marked distinctly by the Customhouse weighers, by scoring' the 'lire.* indelibly on each package. Professor Roessler, of the General Land Office, who was sent to make a geological survey of Texas, reports on his return here that the copper deposits in Texas are very ich, showing sixty-two per cent of pure copper. A joint resolution suspending the use of meters at whisky distilleries passed. Senate —Twenty thousand adilitional copies of the fifteenth amendment enforce ment bill have been ordered printed. The report of the conference eowmijtee on the tax and tariff bill was adopted. A bill was introduced restoring Mqjor James Belger to bis rank in the army. Tbe bill aiding the New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Vicksburg Railroad passed. The Senate has gone into an executive session. The indications are strong that special legislation is over for this session. The impression is that the Georgia bill Mr. may pass in an equivocal shape, givin" Ackerman the construction. 0 The Indian Office to-day received a tele gram from Dakota stating that the chiefs who lately returned from Washington, are ports large numbers of Northern Sioux crossing Platte river, going south, intending to roam between the Platte and Republican, and that they mean mischief. The Senate, in executive session to-day, confirmed the following nominations: Hugh L. Bond, to be Circuit Judge of the Fourth Judical Circuit; J. H. Pearce, United States Marshal for the Northern District of Mis sissippi ; Commodore William Reynolds to be Chief of the Buriau of Equipment and Recruiting; Elizabeth Trask, Postmistress, Emporia. Kansas; Lorenzo M. Johnson, of Texas, to be Consul General at Beirut; Benjamin F. Potts, to be Governor of Mon tana Territorv, vice James M. Ashley, to be removed. The administration is using rts influence in favor of the admission of Georgia, and Attorney General Ackerman is understood to favor unequivocally an election this fall iu that State. The failure of the conference committee to agree excludes Mr. Butler under the rules from any new conference that may be ordered. NEW YORK.
