THE LATE RIOT IN CARLISLE, PA.
Investigation Over the Remain of the
Citizen Death of Sergeant Bergmann
from hie Wounds-? he NewCltjr Conn.
rll and the Military Authorlttea The
Affair Heported at Washington.
Cabliblb, Pr March 23. The excitement
consequent on the riot which took place in this
town on toe 15th March 1a last declining, and
the subject is now spoken ot more dispassion
ately by sjnitmthlzers on either side, and the
action intended to be taken bv the newly elected
city authorities In confanctLm with the mili
tary promises to effectually prevent any chance
of a repetition ot such a diwuracelul row.
There is no doubt that the recruits from the
garrison have been very disorderly on several
occasions, and caused great annoyance and
anxiety to the peaceably disposed citizecs. On
the other bund, however, many rowdies in .the
town have been hitherto allowed to have their
own way completely, and generally to do as
they plcatad, irrespective of all law and order;
and had a stopbr-en put to their proceedings on
election day, the riot would have never taken
place, and twro strong young men, Hamll and
Berg maun, would have' been alive to-day, who
are now, unhappily, the occupants of uumarke i
graves, as unexpected as undeserving ou either
side, from the petty differences arising out of
what should have been a qu'et country town
An investigation has been h'.'M by the Coro
ner into the causes which led to the death of
the citizen Haniill, but no new facts were eli
cited beyond tiiose whl -n have been
already published. Several of the soldiers
were present by lequisition ot the city authori
ties, but none of them, however, were iJentided
as beiner the patties who tired the shot that did
such deadly execution. Many ot the officers
also gave their testimouy.and altera lengthened
examination the investigation wag concluded
without having arrived at any definite conclu
sion to warrant the Coroner holding any of the
soldiers as prisoners.
(Sergeant Bergmann, of the permanent troops,
who was shot ou the occasion, died this niorn
ine from the effects of li is wounds. The Coroner
will be notified to hold au inquest, and it is
asserted that the militiiry are in possession of
evidence that will point to I'ikey Gilmore, now
a priBonerln the towu iail, as beiu the person
who killed the sergeant. The lutter was a fine
young lellow, a (ierman, and is spoken of by
Lis officers as having been a well-couducted
man and a eood soldier.
The Washington authorities have called on
General drier for a lull report of this occur
rence, and that officer has in reply lor warded a
voluminous amount of testimony the sworn
depositions ot the officers and several of the
men. At first it was supposed an inquiry would
have been ordered by the War Department, but
the probability of such is now very dubious, as
the report forwarded by the commandant is so
extensive as to furnish a sufficiently compre
hensive account of the origin and results of the
A new Bureess and Town Council were in
ducted into office on Thursday, when the Chief
Burgess gave notice of his iutention to apply
lor a stronger and more efficient police force,
the present body consisting of only tea or a
dozen men, being totally inadequate to preserve
. order in a town of seven tlioimud mnabitaots,
and fituate in close proximity to a garrison
where are generally quartered upwards of four
hundred cavalry recruits by no means the
most peaceable or best behaved of the com
munity at times. The Burgess has also come to
an understanding with. General Grier, whereby
it has been decided on that both parties sDa.11
act together harmoniously towards preserving
public order, and guardiutf against a recurreuce
of an event that has caused so much trouble
and grief as the late unhapty difficulty.
It is also distinctly understood that no sol
diers will be allowed in the town at uiuht,
unless on exceptional duty, and that the Bur
gees or his officers shall have power to arrest
those recruits found in ihe city at night who
cannot produce a pass explanatory of the cause
of their presence during the forbidden hours.
Unless some very conclusive evidence be
brought against Gilinore, it is probable that we
have now heart the last ot the affair, as the
citizens seem anxious to let the matter drop,
and for the future to deal firmly with all per
' fobs, military or civil, found rioting in or by
any means threateninp to disturb the peace and
tranquillity of Carlisl .

THE PRIZE RING.
A Prlie-Flght at Chicago The Arrange
ments Suddenly Made and Soon Einded
The Contest Decided by One Round.
Caicaoo, March 23. A prlze-3ght was fought
in the southern part of this city yesterday, be
tween Thomas Hurley, a brawuy six-looter,
well known in the prize-ring, and a Canadian
named Morley. The two principals met in a
saloon early yesterday morning by chance, and,
both parties priding themelvosou their muscle,
a mutual challenge, was given to tlrht within
twelve hours for $100 a side. Edward Murray
acrecd to act as second for Hurley, and a boxer
known by the name of Liverpool for Morley.
As but four hours were ta elapse before the
fk'ht was to take place, the few initiated set
busily at work to initiate others, but only on
consideration of secrecy, and when the tituo
arrived for starting nearly two hundred of the
fancy took the horse cars and other means of
conveyai.ee lor ttie region of Camp Douglas.
Shortly belore 12 o'clock both principals
bewail to strip. Hurley stood fully six feet in
his stockings, is well proportioned, and has the
outward appearance of great strength and
activity. Morley is not so large, nor does he
impress one as possessing pugilistic qualities to
any pi eat degree. The contest proved that he
is in no way a route a tor his tall and wiry
At precisely 12 o'clock the men announced
themselves as ready, and entered the ring.
When each had taken position in his corner.
Hurley asked his opponent how ho wanted to
fight whether rourh and tumble, or a square
stand i. p. Morley replied this way, at the tame
time squaring off. Both parties then advanced,
and when within striking distance, Morley
launched out his right, whicu was met aud par
ried by Hurley's left, and at the fame time the
latter landed a powerful blow on Morley's face,
which laid him stiff upon the ground. When
limewas called, he heard it not. The sponge
flew up from his corner, and Hurley was de
clared winner in one round.
Home time elapsed before Morley was able to
appreciate the situation, aud when he did so he
declared himself as cntu ely satisfied. "No more
such fighting tor me," expressed the state of bis
mind. ' Meanwhile the police had become in
formed ot the contemplated fieht, and about 2
o'clock large force from the armory, rein
forced by an additional number from the
Twenty-secoud street sub-station, hurried to
wards the scene of the supposed conflict. But
they came too late. The fight was over more
than two hours before. But the principals were
arrested to-day, and will be held for trial.
GENERAL LQNGSTREET ON RECONSTRUCTION.
lie Advises the South to Accept the Terms
Offered by Congress.
The ey-Eebel General James Longstreet has
written the following letter to the N ew Orleans
Times on the political situation:
New Orleans, March 18. In vour Diper of

the views ot several gentlemen upon the politi
cal condition ol the country. 1 find my name
mentioned among the list, and proceed without
hesitation to respond. As I hive never applied
myself to politics, 1 cannot claim to speak to
the wise statesmen oi the country who are de
voting their energies to the solution of the pro

ody speak the plain, honest convictions of a
It can hardly be necessary, at this late day, to
enter into a discussion of matters that are
usually brought up in arguing upon the pro
posed plan lor recoostiuctiug tne government.
Indeed, I think that many of them aie not per
tinent to the question, xne sirimng leature,
and the one that our people should keep in view,
is that we are a conquered people, uecngntzing
this fact fairly and squarely, there is but one
course left for wise men to pursue, and that is
to accept the terms that are now offered us by
the conquerors. There can be no discredit to a
conquered people tor accepting the conditions
offered by their conquerors, nor is there any
occasion for a feeling of humiliation. We made
an honest, and I hope I may say a creditable
fight, but we have lost. Let us come forward,
then, and accept the ends involved in the
Our people earnestly desire that the constitu
tional GoverLiuent shall be re-established, and
the only means to accomplish this is to comply
with the requirements ot the recent Congres
sional legislation. It is said by some that Con
gress will not receive us even after we have
complied with tbelr conditions, but I can find
no sufficient reason for entertaining this propo
sition for a moment. I cannot admit that the
representative men of a great nation could make
such a pledge in bad faith. Admitting, bow
ever, that there is such a mental reservation,
can that be any excuse for us in failing to dis
charge our duty ? Let us accept the'terms, as
we are tu duty bound to do, aud if there Is a
lack of trood faith, let it be upon others. Very
respectfully, jour obedient servant,
A NEW VERSION OF SNOWBOUND.
Two Hundred Methodist Ministers
From the Leavenworth Commercial, Wh.
During last Wednesday night three trains
arrived at Junction City, which were blockaded
twentv-four hours in a snow bank, six miles
east of Wamego. The train, which had on
board the two hundred Methodist ministers, we
understand, was so located as not to admit of
any egress whereby they might obtain some
thing to eat, nnd there was nothing aboard the
train but a hog and seventy dozen eggs. A
wicked wag suggests that, in devouring the
eegs, they were getting as near chickens as was
llev. H. Fisher, writing to a Lawrence paper,
says- Beans, pork without salt, aud eggs were
tne only diet we bad for the whole party. A
colored girl became cook, with one skillet aui
a shovel for pane. We commenced to prepare
for supper, which was discussed with much
less criticism than if served at home. The
passengers appeared to enjoy the situation, by
various pleasant recitals of incldentrlind anec
dotes, among others the following:
General Fisher stated that alter his return
from the exploration of White river, he was
reading some letters lrom home, when a soldier
stepped up and requested the General to read

A German Composer. A recent popular
concert -in London introduced a specimen of
the works of a German composer, Johannes
Urahma, who has been much talked of in
Germany, but who is scarcely known else
where. Brahms is a disciple of the modern
German school, xhich disregards musical
forms and jiroportions, and has been extrava

critics are very severe on him. ,

CONDEMNATION OP E. DE OIRARDIN.
On the 7th, M. Emile de Girardin was con
demned to pay a fine of 5000 francs, without
imprisonment, for his article entitled "Des
Destinees Nouvelles," but which the Govern
ment organs altered into "Des Destineea Meil
leures." Up to the time of the judgment
being given the Liberie continued to comment
freely on political affairs, but on the 9th it ap
peared without its usual editorials, and in their
palace, and filling four columns, was a critique
of a new Medieval comedy, entitled Galileo.
The Libertd refused even to publish the report
of the judgment until it could take it from an
official source. In reply to questions at the
trial, Girardin said he was UI years of age.
The President said: "You are accused of hav
ing excited to hatred and contempt of the Em
peror's Government in an article of the Liberty.
l)o you admit being the author of the article?"
Girardin replied, "I do." He said he was in
the gallery when M. Rouher delivered the
speech which provoked it, and which he
answered in his journal on the spur of the
moment. Had he not heard it with his own
ears it was possible it would have been less
vehement. Girardin made a good, spicy
speech, which was received with laughter and
COMFTjAINT against thk cnited states. j
The Spanish newspapers are talking very
loudly and pompously about the conduct of

she is destined to act against Spanish com

DISCOVERY OF A CONSPIRACY.
Tho loosen Zeilwtg, a semi-official paper, inti
mates that a conspiracy has been discovered
in Russia. The conspirators, being dissatis
fied with the reforms of the present reign, are
said to be aiming at the life of Alexander II.
This intelligence (writes a Berlin correspon
dent) is scarcely credible in the peaceful con
dition of the Empire, and, but for a striking
ukase issued the other day, would deserve to
l entirely ignored.
It has just been announced at Moscow
that any hotel-keeper who should omit to send
in the name of a guest to the police within a
certain number of hours, will be transported
to the eastern provinces of the realm. This
Draconio edict emanates from the Emperor
himself, and, though only referring to Mos
cow, fiom the discrepancy between offense and
punishment, seems to rest upon some specific
cause. The Sevastopol dinner, annually
celebrated by those officers who shared in the
campaign, has just come off at St. Petersburg.
General Menkoff, who delivered the speech of
the evening, remarked, among other things,
that the events now preparing in the East
were a harbinger of the good times coming,
in which both Sebastopol and Black Sea fleet
would bo reconstructed.

Washington, March 26.
The President has recently been urged by
Congressmen of the Republican persuasion
and other influential citizens, to release Jeff.
Davis from imprisonment upon bail or upon
his own recognizance, inasmuch as there is
now less probability than heretofore that
Chie Justice Chase can be induced to pre
side at a session of the United States
Circuit Court in Virginia within a reasonable
time. Judge Chase has heretofore refused to
hold Court in the District in which Davis must
le tried, upon the ground that it would not be
in keeping with the dignity of a Judge of the
Supreme Court to preside in a District in which
the civil authority was not fully restored, and
where the military arm of the Government is
required to sustain the law and direct and con
trol the actions of the citizens. He has said
repeatedly that not until the civil authority
shall be acknowledged and established beyond
cavil, will he tako his seat upon the bench.
In view of all the circumstances the President
is asked to release Mr. Davis from confinement
on bail or on his own recognizance; and there
is good reason for saying that, within the
next ten days or two weeks, Mr. Davis will be
discharged from custody upon his own recogj
nizance to answer the charges that may be
brought against him.
THE "MOLLY MAGUIRES."
Another Outrage in Schuylkill County
The Burglars Fulled-One Man Killed
and One Wounded.
SPECIAL DESPATCH TO THE EVSNINO TELEGRAPH.
Mahanoy Plains, Schuylkill County, March
25. The proprietor of the Burrell Tavern,
near this place, had his house surrounded by
a party of six or eight of the refractory miners
known as "Molly Maguires," on Friday night,
lie was ordered to surrender all his valuables
to the men, but refused to accede to the
demand of the burglars.
Hastily seizing his fowling-piece, he loaded
it and fired twice into the party. By these
shots one of the thieves was killed and one
wounded. The wounded man was arrested,
but could not be induced to divulge anything
relating to the secret society of criminals of
which he is a member, called the "Ancient
Order of Molly Maguires."
The body of the wretch who was killed was
carried off by the burglars, who obtained
nothing of value by their raid. When the
villains left they made threats of vengeance
against the residents of this place, j. t. c.

piaylngfora commlssiou to be issued to in
quire, into the habitual drunkenness of her
husband, which was accord I ok lv Issued, and so
proceeded in, that on June 29, 1 861, the inquisi
tion was filed, finding him an habitual diun
knrd; which, as modified, was confirmed by the
Court on the l!)th of September, and on the 7th
November, 1801, O. P. Corninun, Esq., was ap
pointed the Committee.
The bill In equity was prosecuted by the Com
mittee, and after taking a large amount of tes
timony on both sloes, bofore au examiner, and
a lull hearing by the Court on the 3lst of Octo
ber, 1802, the Court dismissed the bill.
On November 23, I860, the Committee, la the
name ofbis ward, appealed from this decree to
the Supreme Court, and on February 12, 1801, It
whs ordered that this cause be referred to the
Hon. Qarrlck Mallery. to examine the evidence,
and make report thereon, and on April 21,
1G4, the death of the plaintiff was suggested,
and a rule was taken to show cause why the
widow should not be substituted, which, on
waving, was discharged at the cost of the party
It appears the decedent made a will on the
15th ol October, 1801, constituting his wife his
executrix, which was proved ou May 13, 18B4,
aud Letters Testlmentury Issued July 1, in the
same year. The plaintiff commenced a suit In
the Supreme Court ou December 8, 1864 to Jan
uary, 1805, "No. 129, ngainst Mrs. Vansyckel, ex
ecutrix of E. A. Vansyckel, deceased, and ob
twined a verdict of 879 j. 2.5, on which Judgment
wits entered April 28, 1505.
Thlsjudgment was for professional services
rendered the decedent principally in the bill in
equity, to set aside and annul the deed of trust.
Under the thirty-fourth section of the act of
2Jth of February, 1834, In order to charge the
real estate of the decedent with the payment of
his debts, tbe plaintiff Issued this icire facias
against the widow and the four minor heirs,
and their guardian, to show why the said Judg
ment against the executrix should not be levied
aud paid out of the real estate of which the said
E. A, Vansyckel died seized.
The defense on the part of the widow and
heirs did not allege that the original debt was
not due by the decedent or his estate, and the
defendants showed the plaintiff's receipt for
$108-27, on account of thlsjudgment, paid from
Sir. Vunsyckel's personal property. But they
ollered to show that the decedent did not die
seized of any real estate, and also offered iu
evidence the facts we have already stated, to
show that all the real estate ot tne decedent
had passed by the trust deed and was covered
by Its trusts, and that no leal estate descended
to them as his heirs upon his death.
The Court rejected these offers, and charged
the Jury to find a verdict for the plaiutlDT with
interest, which they did accordingly.
In this we can perceive no error, for clearly
the plalntitT Is entitled to a judgment which
will enable him to reach descended lands, if
there be any. We cannot decide in this oollate
ri.l way tbe title to real estate which one party
claims cannot be reached by execution, and
1 1, e other party says It is liable to. If the real
i-tnte to be levied upon Is that conveyed by the
deed of 29th March. 1858, still the plaintiff has
it right to try his hand upon it, although all he
may be able to effect will be to embarrass the
tiileof the minors. Judgment affirmed.
Court of Quarter Seaelone Judge Brew
ster. l'atrick Costlgan wus charged with being
drunk and disorderly, and carrying concealed
deadly weapons. It was aliened that Costlgan
went into a saloon at Seventh and Shlppen
streets, was drunk and unruly, and pulled from
his pocket a pistol, saying that ho would whip
unybody iu the house. Patrick showed for him
self by a number of witnesses a previous good
character, butofTered no evidence lu explana
tion or his having with him the pistol. The
jury rendered a verdict of guilty. Seuteuced to
County Prison for one month.
William K. Wager was churged with the em
bezzlement of JlOOO.the property of his employer,
K. P. Smith, the former proprietor of the Turf
House, in Eighth street, before closlug this
tavern, Mr. Smith told Wager that ho was dis
charged, and attempted to have a settlement
with him. -Wager hod boeu engnged to keep
the books and superintend the business. When
the books were looked into. he was found toowe
the proprietor $1000. as Smith testified.
He said he had loaned 500 to a friend, but
could recover ;it any day. Up to this time he
has not paid any of it. The evidence as to the
epeclflo charge in the bill of iudlotment was
that on a certain day tho defendant said he had
taken in fifty dollars, nnd aooounted forouly
forty dollars. On trial.
