The First Trial tor High Treason.
ThcKnoxville Whig, of December 20, says:
"An important trial came off last week in tha
Federal Court. John E. Gamble, ot Blount
county, was arraigned and tried tor high treason
strains t the United States, and after five days
trial, was acquitted by a ury. He was an en
rolling onicer uunng ine aays oi it e Dei ruie,
and enrolled the conscripts oi his civil district.
lie was also appointed agent to collect guns,
and i erformed acts under that agency.
"The defense was that there was no guilty
intent. It was admitted that he was an enroll
ing officer, and that he enrolled the conscript i
of his district, but It was denied that he did so
with the view of aid in e the Rebellion. On the
other hand, it was insisted by his counsel, O. P.
Temple, that he was a Union man, that he
accepted the office by the persuasion of Union
men, exercised it in such a way as to favor
Union men and protect them, and that, in fact,
he never seized a single gun, or put a single
conscript into the Rebel army. After the exami
nation of about thirty witnesses, and lengthy
arguments on behalf of the Government by u.
W. Hall, District Attorney of the United States,
and O. P. Temple on behalf of the defendant.
the iurv were chareed by Judire Trigg, and who.
after retiring and consulting, returned a verdict
of not guilty.
This caee was novel and important, because it
was tho first regular trial for treason against the
United States that had ever taken place m the
State, and the first that had taken place in the
United States since tbe commencement ot tae
late Rebellion, if not for the last forty years. It
was earnestly insisted by the counsel oi defend
ant that it be could be convicted, turee nunareu
known Union men in East Tennessee, who had
held this and similar offices dnring Rebel rule,
could lilewixe be convicted of nigh treason.
while the instigators and leaders of the Rebellion
were sheltered and protected by amnesties and
pardons. The defense was based on the broad
ground of not guilty in intent, and not on techni
cal points. The dclendant refused to apply for a
pardon, because he insisted that he was never
guilty ot any crime to do paraonen." t

G'eneral Sheridan, having been requested by
the Governor of Illinois to discharge all the Illi
nois troops now in service in his department
tnat coma De consistently sparea, reiurneu toe
following reply:
"Nothing would gratify me more than to be
able to discharge all the volunteer regiments

I fully appreciate the feelings of officers and men
of such of the regiments as we still retain in tho

The New Year's Reception1 of
the President.
Special to The Evening; Telearrnpb.
Washington. January 1.
By the advice of physicians, the Secretary of
State, accompanied by the Assistant Secretary,
Mr. Frederick W. Seward, Mrs. F. W. Seward,
and Miss Wharton, sister of Mrs. Seward, em
barked on Saturday afternoon on the United
States steamer De Soto, for the purpose of a trip
into milder latitudes. It Is uncertain what points
the party will probably stop it, possibly some in
the Gulf or in the West Indies. Their voyage
will occupy from ten to fifteen days.
Mr. Hunter, Chief Clerk of the State Depart
ment has been commissioned Acting Secretary
during Mr. Seward's absence.
A large crowd was present to-day at the first
public reception given by President Johnson.
Among the distinguished visitors were nearly
all the Foreign Ministers, who were presented to
the Trcsidcnt by Acting Secretary of Stato
Hunter. Mrs. Patterson and Mrs. Stover,
daughters of the President, assisted him in doing
the honors to the guests. Colonel Johnson, the
President's son, and Private Secretary, was ill
and unable to be present.
Piogrcaa in Turkey.
The National Intelligencer publishes an extract
from a letter received in this country relative to
recent improvements of a commercial character
in the interior of the Turkish empire:
"On the 6th of November last the Macadam
ized road which has been in construction tor two
years between Ghemlnk on the sea of Marmora
and the city of Brusa, in Asia, was formally
opened for travel. Brusa is about nine hours'
travel from Constantinople, five of which are by
steamers to Ghemlek. In the winter season this
important city, which contains a popalation of
seventy thousand Mo.3SVhnen, Greek, Ameri
can, Jews, and Franks lor want ot a good road
to the seaport, has been almost entirely cut off
from ccmmunication with the capital. It is the
scat of an extensive trade in raw silk, as well as
manufactured silk and woo;len goods, carpets,
velveta, sallroo, turpentine, wool, wine, etc.,
and possesses an extensive trade with the chief
towns of Northern Asia. The new road will
secure an easy and more economical means of
transportation of its rich and varied products,
and vtill be serviceable at all seasons o the year.
"A tew weeks since a railroad was completed
from Smyrna to the city of Magnesia (Manisa in
Turkish), about forty miles in length. This is a
flourishing city of thirty-five thousand inhabi
tants, about one-fourth of whom are Greeks and
Ameiicans, and has largely engaged in the manu
facture of cotton and silk Bluffs and goat's-hair
shawls, and is on the great road between Smyrna
and the most productive regions of Asia Minor.
It is also one of the most ancient cities of this
part of Turkey, and was a large and opulent city
to tbe latest period of ihe Roman empire. It is
intended to carry the road to Cassaba and Ala
Cheir, two important seats of trade further in
the interior.
"Tbe railroad which has been in operation for
more than a year from Smyrna to Ephesua, a dis
tance of fifty miles, will be finished to Aidcn,
some thirty miles tuither, in the coming spring.
Hitherto tbe wool, silk, carpets, tobacco, etc.,
have been transported at such heavy rates from
Smyrna as to greatly enhance their cost prices
the freight of a ton of tobacco costing about a
dollar between these two points. The completion
of this road to Aidcn, and of that to Magnesia,
will be the source of additional prosperity and
commeree to the thriving city of Smyrna,
"An active competition exists between Russia
and Turkev to secure the transit trade from
Russia to Turkey and Europe. The Russian
Government, taking advantage of the utter
absence of serviceable roads between Trebisond
and the Persian frontier, has recently com
menced, with its usual vigor, the construction
of a paved road from Poti, on the Black Sea, by
way of Tanris, Tiflis, etc., to the Persian fron
tier, and has built a port at' Poti. A portion of
this road is already in use, and has diverted
such a large amount of trade from the old
route between Trebisond and Erzerounl and
Persia, as to oblige the Turkish Government to
enter upon the construction of a ermunent
and well-built road from Trebisond to the Per
sian confines, about thirty-five days distant by
the existing route, and wnich is next to impassa
ble in winter. A corps of competent engineers
and a large working force are engaged upon this
road, the completion of which, some five years
hence, will be ot immense Importance to lioth
Turkey and Persia." ,

The Newark (N.. J ) Advertiser says:
"There ia just now a great demand for stores and
factories in this city, and as a result, rents are
advancing. Stores which have been rented for
six hundred and seven hundred dollars are now
eagerly taken at one thousand dollars, and even
hicrher rates could probably be obtained if in
sisted upon. There is also a great scarcity of
dwellings, but we do not. hear that rents are
likely to be increased.
A new English book, entitled "Drafts onniy
Memory: being Men I hrve Known, Things I
have Seen, Places 1 have Visited:" by Lord
William Pitt Lennox, is dismissed by a London
literary journal with the following bit of model
criticism: "The author, or compiler, for he is
as much one as the other, of this dreary book
was born in the last century, and has small ap
preciation of the taste and requirements of the
present one."
The total product of the fisheries of the
United States, according to the returns in the
new voiume Of the eensus, was upwards of thir
teen millions of dollars ($13,604,805). More
than oue-balf of the amount, or $7,749,300, was
the proceeds of whale fisheries, and $4,183,503
representing the value of cod, mackerel, ami

A piece of gossip is afloat in Paris to the
eflect that Madame de BoUsv, formerly the
Countess Guiccioli, has placed in the hands of
Lamartine the letters that passed between her
and Byron, with notes ol her reminiscences of
the author of "Childe Harold." It is said that
M. de Lamartine receives forty thousand francs
for the life of Byron, and that the proprietor of
the Cbnsri'rwionnrt agreed to give tne writer
thirty thousand francs for another work entitled
"Ma Mere," which has been in their bands tor
two years, but with the understanding that it
should not appear till that period, at3east hud
elapsed. .

The New Year. Tbe noise and btulle
incident to the observance ot the day com
menced at an early hour on Sunday evening.
Guns, pistols, etc., were fired off at intervals;
and the clatter, wnicn increased aDout li o'clock,
was kept up till daylight, much to the annoy
ance of thoso who desired to sleep in quiet.
Bands of hall-crown bovs. and "boys of larger1
growth," were strolling about till daylight, with
horns, kettles, and other noisy instruments
many ot them dressed as clowns, some of them
as negroes, with painted faces, and other foolish
decorations. They sought their homes drenched
inside and out, and with a fair prospect of patro
nizing the medical profession. To-day the snop
windows make a handsome display of articles
adapted to the holidays, drawiug crowds to the
windows ana counters. umDrcitas ana over
shoes find a ready sale in consequence. The
usual church ceremonies were observed, espe

where the "watch meetings" were kept up until
the hour ot twelve announced a new-born year.

Middle and South Camden especially. Tbe want
of an additional night boat has long been felt,
and we are glad to find Caotain Fia.ee so
prompt in conlormlng to the wishes of the peo
A Bold Bukqlabt. Some time durhlg
this morning a daring burglary was committed
at Ninth- and Chesnut streets, at the saloon
known as pelmonico's, of which Robert Fox, the
manager oi the New American Theatre, is tho
proprietor. The bartenders having it in charge
closed at 11 o'clock last night, and went home.
The mode of entrance adopted was ingenious
and skilful. The windows on Ninth street are
enclosed with blinds up to the middle of the win
dow, the upper part being simply stained glass.
The thieves cut ith a diamond a pane of glass in
this portion of the window large enough to admit
a man'B hand, ana by slipping a bolt succeeded
in lowering the upper section. The door was
then forced open flora the inside and the con
federates admitted. Fortunately there was only
some $10 or $15 in the till, which was all m postal
currency. This the thieves appropriated, toge
ther with about $150 worth ot fine brandy in
bottles, and a liberal 'supply of cigars and
tobacco. The noise and "iconfunon incident to
the incoming year rendered the act of robbery
one of small difficulty, but it indicates tbe bold
ness ot the knaves, that on our most public
street, and within call of tho two principal
hotels ot the city, so bold a burglary could be
committed. The block bounded by Eighth and
Ninth, Chesnnt and Walnut, has become the
stamping ground of thieves and scoundrels, and
we trust our new Mayor will pay particular at
tention to the dens of infamy with which that
locality abounds. The closing of a few of the
groggeries in that vicinity would add very much
to the profit of those resident there.
New i Feeht Faciijties The New
Steamer "Camden." Tho Camden and Philadel
phia Steam Ferry Boat Company have lust com
pleted another handsome and capacious steam
ferry boat, which has been christened the Cany
den. She is a consort of the Delxusare, and is
built irom the same model, but is ten feet
longer. The hull was t constructed by Taylor &
Mathias, of Camden; keel, 1U0 feet; length on
deck: 142 feet; breadth of beam, 2'. feet; extreme
width over decks, 49 feet; depth of hold, 9 feet.
She has superior engines made by Neatie & Levy,
ot Philadelphia; ber cylinder measures 32 inches,
with 9 feet stroke. The joiner work was done
by Thomas Jones, of Camden; and the painting
by James H. Denny, of Camden. The Camden.
made her trial trip on last Saturday afternoon,
having on board Messrs. Gatzmer, McKnight,
and Mark ley, Directors of the Company, with a
large number cf invited quests. The trial was
eminently successful. Alter partaking of re
freshments, speeches were made by several gen
tlemen amonc the most interesting of which
was that of William H. Catziuer, Esq., who gave
a history of the Delaware ferriage systems for
the past thirty years. The Company have erected
new slips; have two first-class boats on the line;
have arranged for running a night boat during
the new year, etc. They deserve great credit for
their endeavors to accommodate the publlo with
cheap aad comfortable ferriage, and will doubt
less receive a proper amount of patronage. The
whole ol the work alluded to was supervised by
