A Lnnatle may Destroy the most
MagnlflceBt KdlAc) bat It can only b
Rebuilt by the most Skilful Artist."
From the New Orleans Timet, S)th.
It is with much gratification we publish the
following intereHting correnpondeuce between
the most eminent jurist, one of the Bonndest
and most logical minds in the South, and the
general and soldier who was regarded by
General Robert E. Lee as his most reliable and
able lieutenant throughout the memorable
campaigns in Virginia. The writers are Judge
John A. Campbell, who was regarded as
second only to Chiof Justice Taney on the
Supreme Bench of the United States before
the war, and General James Longstreet, the
conimander of the famous Longntreet Corps
f the Army of Northern Virginia. Their letters
are full of wisdom and eound counsel. They
emanate from men who have given the very
highest evidences of their firmness and devo
tion to the South, and whose present position
of disfranchisement by the Military bills
excludes all idea of interested views in the
counsel which they give. The Southern
pe pie may safely follow the lead and guidance
oi such men:
Hew Ori.kans, April . To the Editor of the New
Orleans Timet: Mncu your publication oi iny letter
many questions have reached me at to the prospects
of our political future, ana our duties mi this crisis.
My lorruer letter was Intended to meet nil questions,
and was as much In detail as a mere soldier should
venture. In a held entirely new to 111 m. I have no In
clination, however, to avoid duties or responsibilities,
whatever may be the form lu which they are pre
sented. But to attempt, at this time, a general discussion of
the merits and demerits of all matter that is thought
to be material to the subject which absorbs our In
terest would require more tune and labor than are at
my disposal, Besides, such discusalou would leave us
Juki where our armies surrendered. I must ask,
therefore, that .those who are Inclined to consider my
Views will excuse the "hlunlness of a soldier."
The rurrender ot the Confederate armies In 1865
1. The surrender of the claim to the right ot se
cession. 2. The surrender ot the former political relations
Ol the neirro.
8. The surrender of the Southern Confederacy,
These lmueo ex plied upon I lie ile'.UB lust occupied
by the Confederate armies. There tuey should have
been burled. The soldier preiers to have the sod that
receives him when lie tails cover his remains. The
political questions of the war should have been buried
upon the fields that marked their end. Our most
cherished objects of this earth, blood ot our blood,
lite ot our Hie, if not duly deposited as ordained bv
an All-wise Providence, become ollensive. Ho must
it be with this dead matter. It the last funeral
rites of the Southern Coniederacy have nut been per
formed, let us, with due solemnity, proceed to tiie
discharge of that painful duty, and let us deposit lu
the same grave the agony of our grief, that we may
Hie belter prepare ourselves lor a return to the
duties of this lite.
It may be well to remark that our efforts at recon
struction will be vain unless we embark In the enter
prise with tbe sincerity of purpose which will com
mand success. Great deeds are not accomplished by
the cold support of Indltl'erent approval; they must be
built of "sterner stuff." We must- apply ourselves
with diligence, and with united resolution, It we hope
to lilt the darkness that threatens our future, and
secure a cowloriable Issue from the diUlculties that
The Fabian pollcvseems to be the one most In favor
among us; familiarly termed the nysiem of "masterly
inactivity." Till policy has achieved a great noto
riety from tbe fact that a distinguished Roman Gene
ral (Fablus Maxlruus) at the liead of a well-disci-
fulned army, by his superior strategy and tactics, de
ayed the progress of the inurjli nf the Carlhageuiaos,
and saved Home. That wecun assume to be In a con
dition to employ "masterly Inactivity" without the
organization of a political club, is bevond my unner
stunding. We might better be likened unto the bird
that conceals lis head In the sand, aud at once begins
to grieve at the danger to Its purcuers, who are now
lull ulone in the vast desert.
Beiore we undertake to chance the course of im
pending dangers, we should endeavor to remove all
obstacles that may be likely to Impede our progress
in the work of reconstruction. Tbe chiet ot thee is
the opinion that prevuils to some extent among our
people thai we cannot do wrong, and that the North
erners cannot do right. I have no doubt but ihe same
feelings, with regard to thehiselve, may bo lound
amongst the Northern people. B ith are laboring
under misapprehensions which they should strive to
correct. Both are sublect to the frailties of human
nature, and each should extend charily if they ex
pect It in return, Let us. then, beuiu to dispel the
delusion, and see if we can establish our claim to
it Is now too late to go back to look after nur rlghls
under the law ana tne lonsuiuuou. iiib or no prac
tical Importance lor us to kuow whether we have
been deprived of these rights by lawful or unlawful
process. We know ihut they are gone, and that the
only available law Is uiurliul law, and the only right,
power. , The more we seek lor law when thore is no
law, the greater will be our confusion. Law at besl is
a slow process by which to recover lost possessions: to
attempt to recover them under doubtful laws and
agaiust power. Is futile.
home think that the question of resistance Is admis
sible In deieadmg our course ol action. But this is a
grave error, even It we had the power to resist and a
reasonable hope of succeeislul resistance. For when a
people resort to the violence of war they should be
prepared It show to the world Just cause ol wur. What
cause can we claim unless we say that we did not
know what we were lighting lor in the war Just endud?
Our duly resolves itself into two very simple propo
sitions, viz i-Relieve ourselves lroni our present em
barrassments by returning to our allegiance, in good
faith, to the General Government under the process
laid down by Congress, or seek protection under some
, foreign Government. Those who determine to re
I main should speed the work ot reconstruction, and
put our people in condition to make their own laws
and rboose their own ofllcers for their execution.
I am one of the particularly disfranchised, fori have
been informed from the highest authority that I am
one ol those who will be the last to receive amnesty.
I reeard this ss one of the results that belong to the
hazards of revolution, aud I have no better cause of
complaint man those wno wave tost tneir slaves.
It is irequenlly said, oow-a-days, that constitutional
govenmeut Is a failure, hut the cause and effect are
not appreciated. If there Is a failure, the fault Is with
the people, not with the Movernuiunt, A luuullo may
destroy the most magnificent edillce, but it can only
be rebuilt by the most skillui artist.

Hon. John A. Campbell. He kindly nermlts me to

General James Tongstreet. .
Christian Bosellus on the Situation.
The following letter from a gentleman who is
regarded as the Nestor of the bar of Louisiana,
on the proper course to be pursued by our
people in their present circumstances, will
command the attention and careful perusal of
our readers. Mr. Roselius Is well known as
the earliest and firmest friend of the Union at
the commencement of the secession agitation
in this State, and his opinions ought to have
great weight and influence over the conduct
and sentiments of the people:
New Ori.ians. April ((.Gentlemen: In reply to
your kind letter of the 26th ult., requesting me and
others to state our views of the course to be pursued
by the people of Louisiana In the present anomalous
condition of our ttlale Government, I would respect
1. That not the shadow of a doubt can he entertained
by any Intelligent and honest mind of the utter un
ronetitulloniiliiy ot the law of Congress called the
Military bill: and that the Supreme Court ot the
United States will so decide whenever the question Is
brought before It In a Judicial form, is eoiinllyjclear.
Nor is there any difficulty in bringing the question
beiore that Court by a writ of error,
2. From tbe temper of the majority or tbe present
Congress, It Is not likely that the legislative branoh of
the Government will pay any more regard to the ex-
Sositloii of the Constitution on this subject by the
upreme Court than they have done to the unanswer
able argument of the President in his veto rue -sage.
8. Under tliis unfortunate condition ot tilings, the
embarrassing and dlilicult question arises, what Is to
be done to get rid of the stern military government to
which we at e now subjected, and to re-establish once
more in its place the benign dominion of tbe Consti
tution and the laws ol the land ?
There is no other method of accomplishing this de
sirable end than that pointed out by Congress, to
whose physical power we must submit with tbe best
grace we can. And tbe sooner this Is d jne the better.
In the meantime we have the consolation of know
ing that the Commanding General who has been
assigned to this District is distinguished not only for
his achievements In the field, but also for Ills desire
and determination of protecting our rights so far as
the law aud orders under which be nets will permit
him to do. Nor should we forget that the deplorable
political situation lu which we find ourselves placed
Is, in a measure, the result of the attempt to over
throw the Government of the United btittes. It is
true that two wrongs can never make a right; but it
is un Invariable law, both in the material, as well as
In tbe moral world, that every wrong action pro
duces a reaction of tbe same kind, In the opposite

A Woman Drowns the Child of a Neigh

bor Thrown Into the Vault of an Outhouse.
From the diicago Times, 10t.
Twenty-first street, between State and Rum-
side streets, was the scene of a series of Inhu
man outrages yesterday afternoon, for muuy
months past, a woman calling herself Mary
Brannagan - has been residing In a small frame
cottage in the locality Indicated. She repre
sented herself as a married woman, but rumors
reflecting upon her character have been cur
rent, connecting her name with that of a negro
In the neighborhood, consequently she has
been shunned by her former neighbors. This
woman has always been an eye-sore to the
entire neighborhood, and the female portion of
this community have even stood In dread for
the safety of their lives, as her threats of mur
der were both loud and frequent. During those
brawls she had rrf queniiy threatened tue uvea
of the children living In the neighborhood.
The family of Michael Kavauugh, residing
at Ho. lol xweniy-nrsi street, iier uexi uuur
neighbor, has been in me naoit. oi receiving
soiueihiug more than their snare of heraui-
moBlty.and inese people nave ueon iuuy awure
ol the slate of her feelings towards them. Yes
terday afternoon their little girl, about four
years ol age. had been auowea to piay in tne
yard, and lor a lew minutes the attention of
both purenis was directed from their offspring
by tjemg caneu to tue irout oi tue uuituiug. uu
returning to uie rear oi tue uouse, iu niun uuur
the snlely of their child, which for the moment
had been negleuted.lt could nownere be dis
covered, instant search was instituted aoout
the house and yard. In the course of these re
searches, which were participated In by a num
ber of persons, Including two pollcetneu, some
one advanced to the vicinity of an outhouse
M united iu the yard, and beheld a little girl
crawl from beneath the shed-like covering,
which had been raised on posts a Utile
above the ordinary level of the ground. It
proved to be the duugliter of Mr. Kavauugh's
next-door neighbor, named Patrick Pldgeon, a
child about five years of age. At first it was
unable to speak and, of course, could give no
reason for having been In such a fearful predi
cament, but when it gained suUloleut con
sciousness and breath to articulate, the child
Instantly accused Mrs, Brannagan with the
commission with tbe evident lntentto commit
murder. When Mr. and Mrs. Kavauugh heard
this recital their fears Increased even ten-fold,
and the search for their own child was prose
cuted witti redoubled energy. Adjoining the
low fence separating the yards from the inclo
sure of Mrs. Branuugan stood a barrel three
fourths lullot water, while on tne top there was
floating a large cake of Ice. More for the
reason that the search should be tuorougii
than under any expectation of flndlug
the body In that locality, the Ice was lifted out
of the water, and there, to the horror of the by
standers the body of a child came to the sur
face. Itwas the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Hchorler, and life was not quite extiuct. But
Us condition was such that no medical skill
could save It. and It died within a few mo
ments. Tbe body bears evident marks of great
violence done to It, and the neck Is almost
black from efforts at strangulation. The fear
f ul newB spread like wild-tire about the nelirh
borbood. Among all theise people there was
not even a doubt expressed as to who could be
the perpetrator of this seoond outrage. The
author of tbe first was unanimously accused
of tliis, and this feeling became, only more
decided when n was known that she bad en
deavored during the afternoon to coax several
other children within her yard. Crowds of ex
cited rjeople began to uather about the nre-
niises. Kverybody living within a block or two
was there, with the exception of the alleged
criminal. Bhe barricaded every avenue of In
gress to her dwelling, and then placing herself
at a window, witn a uayouet ior a weupon, she
threatened Instant death should anv one uos-
sess tbe hardihood to oome near her person. A
strict surveillance was Instituted over the pre
mises. Evidently for the purpoueof making ber
escape, being under the Impression that the
nnllce had abandoned the vicinity, she mude
her appearance in tbe yard, and was Instantly
securod byOmcer M. K. Barrett. But not with
out a severe slrueglo was she at last confined
within the walls of the Twenty-seoond street
sub-station. Although in charge of two ofllcers,
this tlemou fought aud resisted all the way to
the station, and the air was tilled with her voice
as she uttered fearful oaths and blasphemies
against both the living and tbdead. This In
human creature Is about fifty years of age, and
represents In every respeot the most fearful
tvneof low, degraded womanhood. Tne little
girl whose life was saved byiuolhlng less than a
inlracle, is most positive In ber story. She states
tfcftt paving bea coaxed by Mis. JJrauogfta Into
her yarrl.she was suddenly seized by this woman,
and while her cries for help were stifled, s ie
was enst Into the vault, With remarkable
piexeuce ol mind, perceiving a small opening
at the rear, she struggled her way towards the
aperlure, and at last succeeded In extricating
herself altoaether. Although she was enabled
to move her limbs she had apparently lost all
control of ber voice, and hence, during all her
fearful struggle she was unable to give a single
outcry to attract attention. The popular ex
citement In the vicinity where these outrages
occurred Is fearful, and almost beyond the con
trol of the police. The Coroner has been notl
fled, and an Inquest over the remains of the
little girl will be held to-dav, when still addi
tional and interesting facts will no doubt be

which they were drawing out, when something
like a solid body was encountered
"1 suppose It is a dog," said one ot the men.
"Yen. or a horse." reloined the other, and
they at once commenced pulling It out; but
when it reached tbe surface It was found to be
the remains of a man.

an Inquest was held.
APPEARANCE AND IDENTIFICATION,
At first no one knew whose remains were
before them; and considerable progress was
made in the investigation before any know
ledge was obtained as to who the deceased was.
But one thing was apparent, the body was that
of a murdered man. There were several severe
cuts in the face and contusions on the head;
nnd in addition the pockets of the deceased
were turned inside out a pretty clear evidence
that he had not only been murdered, but that
the crime had been Instigated by a desire
The discovery of the body drew quite a larre
crowd around It, and finally one man said that
he believed It to be the remalnsof John Martin,
who has been msssing from his home, in Fair

Marl in. his wife, was sent for. and she at

the day he was missing, and that time he
had acheck with him for $600, also S25 In money.
He was then In company with two men,
named Kelly and O'Brien, the latter having
worked with ray husband at the Globe shoe
maker shop on Broadway, near Klgtith street.
I saw Kelly afterwards, and he said he left my

I am doing." Keny then, according to his state

GREAT SPLIT IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
Opening of the Anti-Tammany Cam
paignThe Vnterrlfled Falling to
To the Democracu of the Cilsj of New York: By
your appointment we have demanded of the
llemocratic State Convention at Albany, in your
name, that you be allowed a representation lu
that body. Without any hearing of your case,
by tbe arbitrary powerof the previous question,
the subordinates of the Tammany ring were
admitted exclusively to seats in that Conven
tion from the clly of New York. To add
to the wrong thereby doue your magnani
mous support of Mayor Hoffman for Gov
ernor at the last State Convention, in spite
of his alleged subserviency to the corrupt ring
by which our city is at once plundered and dis
graced, and in spite of the wrong done to you
by your exclusion from the convention which
nominated him. was made the chief argument
for your continued proscription. It was thus
authoritatively proclaimed that so long as you
will submit to be robbed of the right of repre
sentation, so long you shall be denied any voice
in the selection of the candidates you are asked
to support at the polls, and that it you really
deslieto possess the inalienable right of free
men aud the especial heritage of Democrats,
you must strike down at the polls any candi
date whom a State Convention shall force upon
our great city without allowing the people to
participate In bis selection.
There was no member of the State Conven
tlon'wbo did not know, as every intelligent
politician in the State knows, that the men ad
mitted into that Convention from our city were
appointed by the pretended General Conven
tion at Tammany Hall, aud that that body wus
appointed by the preceding Committee, Even
more notorious than the fact that the unfortu
nate rule of radicalism in our Stale has been
maintained chiefly by the lmbeoiilty and Ineffi
ciency of tbe Detnocratio State Committee, is
the fact that the so-called organization at Tam
many Hall is merely a close corporation, per
petuating Itself from year to year, In which the
Democrats of New York bave no more voice or
control than they bave in the dolngsof the radi
cal cabal at Washington. But it is not so well
known that, close us is the rule at Tammanv
Hall, the General Committeelor this year whlcli
appointed the delegates who were admitted as
your pretended representatives has not yet
been formed. The men who hold the power at
Tammany Hall are so obnoxious that they dare
not trusi themselves for a hole year even to
a committee of their own st lection. They,
therefore, so arrange the matter that each
January more or less of the seats from the
several wards are left unfilled until September,
lu order that, at the time for making nomina
tions, they may fill up the places with men
who are then found to be most subvervlenl.
Such a skeleton of a committee selected the
represtntatlves sent by the Tammany ring to
the State Convention. How well they did their
work is shown In the fact that of those forty
two representatives all but three are oilloe
holders; and that by such a machinery the
whole power of the mighty Democracy of the
city of'ework in nominating the delegates
at large to the Constitutional Convention was
exercised by William M. Tweed, Charles G.
Cornell, and Mr. A. Oakey Hall.
By such a mere sham, fellow-Democrats, you
are'ruled.and your sull'eranoe of it creates the
delusion by which It Is perpetuated. You are
now told so In the most emphatic manner by
this Slate Convention. Keep the fact constantly
In your rolnd: let iisiiiKeueepmio your hearts,
and resolve, as you respect yourselves and love
your country, to act henceforth as becomes men
who "know their rights, aud knowing, dare
maintain them." The plan by which the dele
gates at large to tbeConstltutional Convention
are chosen transfers the power to elect from the
people to a packed convention; and as the time
previous to the election Is too short for a new
convention, you bave, In respect to tbe election
or those delegates, no alternative but submis
sion. Other elections, however, are to beheld
In the future, and if you have the. heart todare,
yon will then have the power to do. A firm
resolve never to vote for the nominee of a
Democratic State Convention from which you
are excluded wHl not only soon restore to you
your rights, but will alo restore to tbe 8tate a
Meanwhile, you can manifest yonr power by
electing Horn your several Senatorial dlstt lot
such persona only as delegates to the Con
stitutional Convention as are known to be
reso ulely hostile to the Tammauy imposture.
We desire to suggest that you should exercise
liberality towards all In making these nomina
tions, while you at the same time nominate no
one who Is n participant In nornoluatlng the
rule of the ring. Jn pursuance of the dutv im
posed upon us by tbe Detnocratio Union

COURT OF COaf MON PLICAS-Jurttre Plerco.-The
following (interesting opiuionwas this morning de
livered by His Honor Judge Pierce:
fquire vs. Squire. A Ojurt of Acuity wilf protect the
rtiihts of an infant in ventre mere. The rifjIUs of uc
an infant un hi ir in the land of iU ancestor-
Pierce, J. William H. bquire, M. !., died, devising
his house In Oermaulown to his wile, the complalu
unt, and his father, the defendant, "in equal parts, to
he liy them divided, share aud share alike, and to
holu the same to them absolutely." The complainant
brought this hill on her own behalf, and as guardian
by nature of her unborn child, averring that she was
pregnant of an unborn child by her said husband, and
thai the said deleudant excluded her as widow or de
visee of her said husband, or as guardian by nature
of the rights and Interests of ber uuborn child, of pos
session or control of said house, and that he main
tained exclusive control, management, and possession
oi the same. And that the said house had been
greatly injured by the negligence of the deleudant,
and for two months had reniulned unoccupied aud
locked up. The bill prayed for a special injunction to
retrain the defendant from maluialnlng exclusive or
any control or possession of the premises until the
bnth ot her said child, aud perpetually thereafter;
aud lor a receiver to lake charge of aud
rent ihe said premises, aud alter payment of ex
penses, to reserve the balance tor the benefit
of the complainant and her child. At
the preliminary bearing the motion for a special
ii'juucilon was granted, and a receiver was appointed.
1 lie cause now comes up for tiual decision on bill,
answer, and proofs. The defendant, by bis answer,
denied that be had ever excluded the complainant
from any possession or control to which she was by
Imw entitled, aud that the premises had been Injured
by his negligence. Proof was made that the child, of
Inch the complainant was pregnant, was born June
8. lst6, and is lu lull life. There was no proof of injury
or damage to the premises, nor exclusion of the com
plainant by the defendant, except that through his
counsel he relused that the reutlng ot the house should
be committed to Mr. J. M, Uummey, who It was
proposed should pay the taxes and Interest on
li cumbrance, aud deposit the balance lu the Having
Fund to await llnal distribution: aud that he rented
the house to a tenant of his own selection, without, so
fur as appears from the answer and proofs, any con
sultation with the complainant, Kquity will protect
the rights ot an infant en vrntre a rwtr. It will grant
an Injunction to slay waste on behalf of such an infant.
Musgrave vs. Parry, 2 Veru. 71tl. ISucn children are
considered by the law as In being for a variety of pur
poses. They were considered asm being at the death
of an intestate In order to be entitled to lake under the
statute of distribution of an Intestate's estate: they
are capable of taking by desceut estates in fee simple
or In lee tall; may be devisees; and for all purposes for
their own benefit, considered as absolutely bound.
Swift vs. Dutlield, S 8. and H.'ii. An infant rnvntfrtta
nu re Is a life in being to prevent au estate being void
as a perpetuity, may be vouched, may be au execu
tor, may have an Injunctlou. and a guardian, Thel
hiHsou vs. Woodford, 4 Vesey , Jr., i--. ily our Penn
sylvania statutes. In caseot Intestacy, a posthumous
child takes as If It had been born la the lifetime of
the Intestate; and In case of a will, it takes as If the
deceased had actually died without any will, ' The
etlectot the birth or this child is to vest the whole
estate of the decedent In him, subject only to the
dower or thirds ror lile of the complainant. This in
junction, therelore, must be made perpetual.
There Is oue other question. By whom should tbe
costs In this case he paid? The bill was brought to
establish the existence ol the infant en venire u mere,
and to protect its rights; aud if the deleudant were lu
uodelault or wrong, he should not bo visited with
costs, lie appears to bave been so fur in wrong,
as to bave not concurred lu a reasouuble suggmtlou lor
the protection of the rights of the infant, aud to have
rented the property without the consent of or con
sultation with the complainant. Jlut as he had a
right to have the exlsteuce ot the posthumous child
established, he should not be visited with all the costs
oi the case, We will order, therefore, each party to
pay bis own costs: that Is the defendant to pay his
costs, and the complaluaut's coats to be paid out of the
estute of the infant.
COUltT OF QUAIITKB BESSIONB-Judge Brews

Morrlssev, chained with larceny as bailse, tried and
reported yesterday, the Jury rendered a verdict of
Habeas corpus cases and miscellaneous business
were before the Court to-day.
The commonwealth ex ret. Dlglglas vs. the Sheriff
A writ of haoeas corpus ror tbe possesslou of a child.
An Italian, named Lapatinl, brought the boy from
Italy, upon au agreement bv which be Is to pay kliu
flu per year, and at the end of four years Is to send
him back to Italy. Itwas alleged that Dlglglas took
the boy into bis house, he having come therewith
his sous, and relused to give him up. The relator
attempted to show that the respondent had Bo right
to the custody of the boy, and did not treat him as a
boy nf his age should be treated; aud also that the
relator Is doing everything for the boy that should
be done. This bond, alleged to have beeu given by
the res) londeut to the boy 's mother, was ngf autlisri
Heated, aud tliereiure wm of eg validity,
The Court said that all the points and evidence sub
mitted would be considered, and the boy at I1"'1'
should remain In the custody of Deglglas : still be
could nnt be too well trusted, since he had sent the
child aboutlhe streets and drinking saloons at all
hours; and further, the child would not bo sent to
Italy, for the mother, Irotn her conduct In submitting;
thechlld to tne custody ot a tusn who was going to a
strange land, was not tbe right kind of persou.
The araument upon tbe motion In arrest orltiflg
ment In the case of the Commonwealth vs. Alsop
et. al., was taken up, Knough has already ben said
concerning this lease, at the argument of the de
murrer and the trial of the ciise. The principal point
in this argument seems to be upon the staluie or
limitations, whether the law means that a bill ol in
dictment shall be lound and tried within two years
after the allrged commission of ihe ofense, or
whether the bill Is merely to be found within two
years, and allowed to lie over as circumstances may
require. cssidy aud Brlggs for defendants; Brooks
