11)0 Executive Mansion was again besieged to day by
laryc crowd of visitors, one-tbird Of tbem women.
Tbc President. opened his office to all of them at the
came time, and paid attention to their respective mills
on business, aided by bis private secretary. Tbe moil
importunate of the throng presented matters of the
t least Importance, some of tbem having previously been
unsuccessful with heads of departments. Several exmembers
of the United States Congress who have been
prominent in the rebel service waited in the ante-room
in order to obtain a private interview with the President

Thursday being set apart in the State Department for

Tbe Attorney Genera^ in response to an Inquiry of
^re^Idcnt Johnson whether the persons charged with the
ofience of having amaasinated the late President should
be tried before a military tribunal or a civil court, gave
a wriite^opinlon sustaining the former nvodo of trial.
This opinion ha* been printed. It maintain* that a
military tribune exists under and according to
tbe constitution In timo of war; tbat tbe law
of nations constitutes a part of the .law of
tbe load, and that tbe laws of war constitute
Mm floater part of tbe law of nations. Tbe lawn

process, or that legal process contemplated by those
provisions In the constitution relied upon to show
that military Judicial tribunals are unconstitutional.
The Isw of nations, which Is the result of the experience
and wisdom of ages, has decided that Jay hawkers, banditti,
Ac., are offenders against the law of nations and
of war, and as such amenable to the military. Our constitution
baa made those laws a part of the law of the land
Obedience to the constitution and to law, then, requires
that the military abould do their whole duty. They must
not only meet and light the enemies of the country in
open battle, but they must kill or take the secret enemies
of the country, and try and execute them according
to the law. The civil tribunals of the country cannot
rightfully interfere with the military in the
performance of their high, arduous and perilous,
but lawful duties. The Attorney General
characterizes Booth and bis associates as secret, active,
public enemies; and be concludes with the opinion, that
44 the persons who are charged with the assassination of
tbe President oommitted the deed as public enemies,
s I believe they did; and whether they did or not is a
question to be derided by the tribunal before which they
re tried. They not only can but ought to bo tried bo
fore a military tribunal. If tbe persons charged have
offended against the laws of war, it would be palpably
wrong for the military to hand them over to the civil
courts; as It woukl be wrong In a civil court to convict a
man of murder who had in time of war killed another in

at the corner of Rent avenue and Taylor street. Willamsburg.
The Ore spread with great rapidity. and, notwithstanding
that the firemen froai both districts were

progress of the dames, and the factory, with its contents,
was entirely destroyed.
The Ore having spread to the bottling department of

building was toon also enveloped in flamos, and, notwithstanding
the efforts of tlie Qremen, It was also, with its

The morocco factory was a frame building, and, with

During the prograaa Of the (Ire at the Empire Works
three firemen ascended the roof of the building with a
stream of wat?r, and persisted in| remaining there, contrary
to the advice of Captain Woglom, who warned them
of their danger. A few minutes only elapsed after this
warning wh?n the roof fell in with a loud craab, carrying
with it the three men. Two of them, however (Daniel
McOrath and John McKenna, of Engine Company No. 6,
E. D.), managed to eitrlcate themselves with slight injuries.
The othar man (George Stewart, of Eugine Company

Our State then had a population of 904,201 soul*, of

4-15,080 were slaves. We had 6,462.987 acres of improved

producing 32.701,104 bushels of corn, 1,222.4x7
bushels of wheat, 70,1/12 bushels of rye, 221,284 bushels

We had seven hundred ami forty-three miles of railroad

of the State, and $8,200 000 invested in manufactures,

The Stale owed a sterling bond debt, payable in London,
of $1,336,000. and a decimal bond debt, payable in
New York, of $2,109,000. It also owed what is culled
the funded debt of the State, consisting of the sixteenth
section and the University fund, on which the Interest
only can be paid, the Stale having assumed this In perpetuity,
amounting to $120,000. To meet this the State

There is no longer a slave in Alahnma. It is thus made
manifest to the world that the right of secession for the
purpose of establishing a separate confederacy, based on
the idea of African slavory, has been fully and effectually
tried, and is a failure.

Shall we not heed their advice? In the hope, the be
