Well In Allegheny.
[Special Correspondence Cleveland LEADER.]
FRANKLIN, PA, May. 10. 1865.
We have a report to-day of a large well
being struck npoa Logan Creek, a short
distance above the lakry and ' nearly six
miles above Cooporstown. Tie report,
which is doubtless largely exaggerated, U
that the well commenced to Sow oil and
water ont of the conductor before being
tubed, at the rate of six hundred barrel,
per day. Of course we do not believe this
atory in all its amplitude, but if we even
take off five hundred barrel and that is
considerable for a "come down" the
well will be quite enough to excite
a ret awed interest , in cug&r creek
territory, which already stands high, and
attracts buyers from all parts ol the oil
section. There is much good territory on
the Lake Branch of Sugar Creek between
the Lake and Coopers town, and as I
wrote yen some time ago, there are
many wells going down, some of which
irill undoubtedly turn ont narjusomeiy.
As to this new big well I can give yon
definite information in a day or two from
pergonal inspection.
The telegraphic dispatch as to good sil
ver and lead having been discovered in
digging a cellar at Oonperstown, is taken
with many grains ol allowance, cut oi
this, too, X can tell you more . shortly.
Whether this story is true or lalse, it is a
fact that Sugar Creek territory promises
excellently well and is in very good re
pute abroad,
(several French Creek walls which are
being put down, give very Cue shows of oil.
This ttct, ana me iunner one mat a wen

ten miles nortb-enst of Miadville, and near

A new hotel, which is to be lirge ana

now in proses ol erection or contemplated,

side of tbe mountain lor a lone distance.
A new veil is reported upon the rloover
Farm, on the Alleghany, some two miles
below this place. It ia owned principally

State Congregational Conference of
Ohio.
This body held its annual meeting, last
week, in Mailt field. Tbe place and time
added interest to the gathering ; for it was
in the same bouse (the Congregational
Church,) that the State Conference was
formed, out of formerly variant elements,
from different parts of the Statu, from
lake to river. The attendance wag large
and tbe treelings harmonious, and the
tone if spirit enthusiastic Every one
felt happy over the endii g of the war, and
the rleiith of slavery. Dr." WoWtt, the
late Moderator, retired with a strong ser
nian, on Wednesday evening, and Dr.
Jloigan, of Oberlin, was elected Modera
tor for the year. ' - - -1
In the devotional meetings held every
morning from eight to nine o'clock, and at
a social reunion on Thursday evening,
pleising recollections were rehearsed con
cerning the organization of the Confer
ence, and running back even thirty years
to the first meeting cf-th Stat ABti

thirty years of eventful import in the
World's history, and crowned with signal
triumphs of freedom. J ,

ot tne jonieaerate troupe was lolly 4 that
the cause was lcs and thai every lue sac
rificed after the surrender of Lees army
was the highest possible crimo. . .. ,
Johnston admitted - th it the terms con
ceded to General L?e were magnaniiauus-
and ali lie could ak, but wanted some con-,
cessions that would enable him to allay the
natural fears and anxiety of his followers,
and enable him to maintain his control
over them until they could be get back to
their homes.
He also wanted to embrace in the nme,
general proposition th fatnof all tbe Con
federate armies that remained in existence.
I never made any concession as to bi. own
army, or assumed to djal finally and au
thoritatively in regard to any other, but it
did seem to me that there was presented a
chance for peace which might be deemed
at that time, valuable to Uie Gjvaraui jnl

I returned to Rileigh and conferred
freely with all my General offi"ers, every
one of whom urged me to conclude terms
attar a fugitive and dissolving army back
towards Ueorgis, almost ovtr the very
country wnere we bar! tolled so long.
There was but one opinion expressed,
and if contrary ones were entertained they
were withheld, or indulged in only by that
class who shun tbe fight and the march,
but are loudest, bravest and fiercest when
danger is put.
I again mot General Johnston on the

He satiflsd me then of his power to dis
band the tebel armies in Alabama, JI seis-

instances led to the commission of crimes
of the most malignant character until law.
Iessnes seems to have culminated in the
sssnsfination of Mr. Lincoln, and the at
tempted assassination of Mr. fceward. For
those atrocious acts, so repugnont to the
instincts pf the American heart, and so
much opposed to the principles regulating
our social life, you reel, I am sure, in com
mon wkh the whole people of this State,
the proHjtmdeat feelings of detestation.

It is alleged that the immediate parties

among them Jeff. Davis and Jacob Thomp

pelled by Governor Clark on account of

the evidence justifies the charge their names

President "Wendell Phillips, Chairman

tion declaring that it is tbe opinion cf the
convention that the re-Constructlorj of the

practical surrender to the ConfeJeracy,
and will make the anti-slavery psoclamaof
the late President, and even the Consti
tutional Amendment, utterly ineffectual
for the freedom and protection of the ne
groes. ) - . -'
Mr. Phillips aupportel the resolution
a vigorous speech. He contended that
slavery was abolished, and the reconstruc
tion policy of the administration, as
forth in the proclamation for the recon
struction of North Carolina,' was
absolute surrender of the, helm
the Union into the hands of Alexander
H. Stephens and his co-workers. .- Recon
struction on that basis is a practical fraud
on the North. Every life and every dollar
they had spent had been stolen from them.
There was but one way m which the peo
pie could still hold the hlm of affairs, and
that wss by declaring the repudiation
the entire war debt .
Such a party would have his vote.
would oppose every stop of reconstruction
that did not place the negro upon an abso
lute equality and level with the white
man. Every man who supported
North Carolina proclamation was a Davis

to General Grant:
Hiaeq'rs. Mn. Dry. oi the Miss, 1
"' " KalbiOH, N. OL, April 28, 1865.
-? Gekzbax: Since you Witt me yesterday
I have seen the New York Times of the
24th, containing a budget of military news
authenticated by tbe signature of the Sec
retary of War, which is grouped in such
a way as to give very erroneous impres
sions. It embraces a copy of the batus of
tbe agreement betweea myself and General
Johnston, tf April 10th, with comentaries
which it will be time enough to discuss
t wo or three years hence, after the Govern
ment has experimented a litlie more in the
machinery by which power it reaches the
scattered people cf the vast area of country
known as the- South. But in the mean
time i do taink my rank, if not my past
service, entitled ma, at least, to the respect
pf keeping secret what was known to none
but the Cabinet until further erquiry could
have been made instead of giving publici
ty to a document I never , aud draw
ing inferences wide from the truth. I never
saw, or had furnished me, a copy of Presi
dent Lincoln's disp itch to you of the 5th
of March until at"er tbe agreement, nor
did Mr. Stanton, or any human being, ever
convey to me its substance or anything
like ik But on the contrary I had sea
General "Weltzal's invitation to the Vir
ginia Legislature, made in Mr. Lincoln's
presence, and had failed to discover any
other official notice of a plan of recon
struction, or any idea calculated to allay
the fears of the p ple of the South that af
ter the destruction of the armies and civil
authorities they would be left witheut any
Government at alL . We should not drive
a people in anarchy, and it ia simply im
possible for our military power to reach all
the resources of their unhappy country. X
confess I did not wish to Dreak General
Johnstons army into bands of armed men,
moving about without purpose, and capa
ble of infinite mischief, but you siw on
your arrival that I had my army so dis
posed that his escape was only possible in
a disorganized shape and as you did not
choose toduect military operations in this
quarter I infer you were satisfied with the
military situation. At all events the in
stant 1 learned what was properly enough
the disapproval of the President 1 acted in
such a manner as to compel the surrender
of General Johnston's wnole army on the
same terms you prescribed to General
Lee's army wneo. yon had it surrendered
and in yout absolute power.
Mr. btanton, in stating that my orders
to General Stoneman were liaely to result
in the escape of Mr. Davis to Mexico or
Europe, is in deep error7jstoneman was
not at Salisbury then, but ad gone back
to States villa. Davis was beyond him ; by
turning toward me he was approaching
Davis, and, had he joined me as ordered,
1 would have had a mounted force greatly
needed for that and other services. But
even now I don't know that Mr. Stanton
was the cause of Davis being caught, and
as my official papers, deemed sacred, are
hastily published to the world, it will be
Imprudent for me to state what has been
dne in- that respect, as tbe editor oi tna
Times has. It may be logically and lauiy
drawn from this singular document.
As to the conclusion tnat 1 am msuDor

stand-points. For four years I have been
in camp, dealing with soldiers, and I can
assure you that the conclusion at w hich the

I Conferred rreeiy wnu xm east omcers in
