Leetor Nre Mr. Duke. We publish the following letter, because we are always willing to hear both sides, and to give everybody exact justice and fair play. The reason we made the state ment complained of was, that the Court, Judge Ohumasero and Meeers. Sanders and Thoroughman unequivocally stated that they had refused permission to the witness to go, and that he had went on his own responsi bility; wbhich fact evidently created an un favorable impression on the minds of the Jury, against Mr. Duke. We feel bound, however, to say that so far as direct, delib erate and unequivocal testimony was con cerned, no better witness ever answered a lawyer; but the faeet is as we gave it, nev ertheless. HUxmma, Jul 2d, 1865. ED. PoST:-I noticed in your issue of June 24th, in referring to the McCausland trial, you state that I"sought permissi n of the Court and the attorneys to leave town, which was refused"-thatl finally started in the face of express prohibition; which fact had the effect of greatly weakening my tes timony. So far as the testimony is concerned I do not doubt but that it was considered weak, as I think evidence in the prosecution in such cases is always considered weak. As for my leaving Virginia without permis sion, I must say it is as false as h-I I. do not think you are to blame for the mistake, as I have no doubt that you were misin formed. I did seek permission to leave from the Court, and from the attorneys on both sides, which I considered granted; but to make the case more clear I will state how I got that permission. I first went to Mr. Sanders, and told him that I wished to go home, as I did not think I was needed any longer. He replied to me that he did not know that they needed me any longer; that it was Thoroughman who contended that I must stay; that if Thoroughman was willing for me to go, that he was. I then went to Judge Chumasero. He said that he was through with me; that he had nothing to do with me; but he did not give me leave to go. I then went to Judge Hosmer and asked him by what right they kept me there. He answered that he did not keep me; that I was at liberty to go; but that I was liable to be attached and brought back. 1 told him I was aware of that fact; but was sat isfied that there would be no attachment sent after me, as I thought that there was no need of me there any longer. He told me that I had better see Mr. Thoroughman; so I went to him, and he informed me that if Sanders was willing for me to go, he was; and the last word he said to me was to go. These are facts which I think these parties will not deny. It was not my wish to have said any thing about this unfortunate affair, but when I see such falsehoods published, on top of all the abuse that I have had. I think it my duty to say a few words i, my own defense. 1 It was my misfortune to be mn the store of Geo. Howe when the fatal occurrence took place; for which it seems, if I am rightfully informed, that I am accused by a great many of being connected with Kinna in a plot to 1 murder McCausland and rob the store. These aceusations are as base and false as the black hearts from which they emanated; but those whom the story suits can believe it, if it suits them. After the shooting took place, and McCausland and Kinna had both left the store, if I had been on the rob, I had a splendid opportunity, as the house was left in my possession, and was locked up by me, and the key given to Mr. Johnson by me, about one hour afterwards. I was told by a gentleman, while in Virginia, that I had a great many enemies there. Be that as it may, it matters not to me; I have never wronged any man there, and if I have ene mies there, I cannot help it; nor do I pro pose to try to help it. One word about the two gentlemen, principals in this sad affair, and I have done. I had known Kinna, the deceased for nearly four years; had never known anything bad of him; had had deal ings with him; had always been treated as a gentleman by him, and consequently had no fault to find with him. I had known McCansland three or four months; was introduced to him by Kinna; was always treated well by him, and always regarded him as a gentleman, and do yet. I did think on the night of the shooting that McCausland was wrong; but after I learned the particu lars of the case, I changed my opinion. When I was called to the stand to testify against him, I could only tell the truth, as I had no interest in the matter, and could only have told the truth if I had been inter ested.

S. B. Bukner, with 13,000 prisoners, 8,000 horses, about S,0X0 stand of arms, 48 fieldpieces, 17 heavy guns, and other military stores. At Vicksburg, July 4th, 1863, he captured Lieut.-Gen. Pemberton, with 20 general eB cers, 4,000 commissioned officers and 19,000 men--total about 24,000. He also captured 128 pieces of feld artillery, and 90 siep guns, besides 83 pieces previously taken total 301. Of small arms,45,000, with arm and munitions of war for 60,000 men, with a vast quantity of steamboats, looomotives, cotton, etc., and more important then all, the Mississippi. As Vicksburg involvedthe surre0der of Port Hudson, we have to credit to Grant the fruits there gatbed-6,8Q0 prisoners, 61 guns, 44,800 pounds of o r, 15,000 rounds of ammunition, 5,000 ste of arms, two steamers and other stores. Arksas Post, eaptured by a detachment from his command, adds 5,000 prisoners and 40 guns. At Chattanooga, besides the brilliant fea of rescuing ourbeleaguered sad endangered army and driving the enemy from a vastly superior position, he captured 6,000 priso ners and 40 guns. A detashment of his immediate command, under Weitsel, esp tured 3,000 prisoners and 180 guns at FPot Fisher and Wilmington. In the crowing campaign against Richmond, he destroyed a rebel army of 60,000 men, all of whom were either killed or wounded, dispersed er captured. In the final surrender atpp mattox C. H., April 9th, 1865, 26,000 peo ners, 16,000 stand of arms 160 cannon, TO ag, 1,000 wagons, and 4,00 hore were all that remained; but at Rishmoad Wedmel had previously reported the epptare of 800 guns, and a considerable number must hew. been captured at Petersburg. This surrender involved the subequeaM surrender of Johnson with 25.000 prisoers and 90 guns, and was followed by the ser render of the armies of Dick Taj]or, preob bly 12,000, and Kirby Smith and Magder. estimated at 25,000. It would be safe to say that, including the captured not above enumerated, 20,000)g. and 2,000 guns have been captured by Gen. Grant? and as the immediate results of his victories. His grand total of captnres is at least twice as great as the forces ander his command at any one time. When we add to these figures the rebel killed sad wounded at Donalson, at the battles befoe Vicksburg, at Chattanooga and at the Wilderness, the last of which is estimated to have amounted to 60,000, and it will appear that General Grant has put hers do combat not less than 350.000 rebels in sap. tured, killed, wounded and dispersed.
