The fort bciu,( closfl y invented, and perfectly untenable. General Forrest made formal de mand for the surrender, adding that h want ed to avoid the unoec'xsary shedding of blood, and that in the event of a surrender, all its garrison should be protected and treat ed aa prisoners of war. See Rebellion Records, Document viii, page 24. After an unuuual delay, au answer was received, bearing the signature of Major Booth, com manding, asking an boar more for consulta tion witn the guuboaU. To this General Forrest replied that be had not demanded a urrerider of any gunboat, but only of the fort and garrison, and repeating his original demand, giving twenty minjtm for a reply. Bear in mind, us was afterward plainly shown, all this time was being consumed by the Fed erals in getting the gunboats into position, thus perpetrating a greut military lraud. He sides, it is matter of history that pending the negotiations for a surrender, steamers were aeun ascending the river, one of them crowd ed with troops, and bearing directly for the beleaguered fortress. Up to this point, on which side does the 'bad faith' appear? After aeveral hours of vexatious quibbling, we re ceived a positive reluial to capitulate. Then followed the assault and the carrying of the works all of which, from th-? bugie signal to the firing of the last gun, did not occupy ortr tirenty minutes, according to my impres sion, while General Forrest held that it uas tiot over fifteen minutcm." Reporter You mean from the first shot till the surrender? General Cialraers As I said befoie, there teas no surrender hence the low meanness of the persifltnt charge of "murder alter the surrender." The proof is clear that Major Bradford, in anticipation cf his woiks being carried, had arranged with Captain Marshall, of tho gunboat, that the garrison should drop down under the bank where the gunboat could shelter thi.m, or, in the language cf Captain Marshall himself, "give the rebels cauixter." To show yau that this is na "rebel lie," see C.ipUin Marshall's testimony taken before the Federal congressional committee. Kibel records, doc. 8, page 58. Importer It does look that way, sure enough, to an impartial spectator. Indeed, tho charge of massacre of "surrendered sol diers" begins to meitiuto very thin air. General Chalmers Sii lar irora taere be ing any surrender, thi garrisoa evidan'ly thought they wire leading us ty that holo caust of cannier whub. Mjj jr Bradford and Captain .Marshall had prepared tor them. "When we charged over tbeir works they (the Federal sold.ers) received their pre-arranged signal, and tit masse, white and black, with guns ia hand, broke for the place of refuge, tearing their lag still flying. It never came down at all until General Forrest, with bis own hand, cut the halyards! During thi3 time, tcith their 1 lag ttill flying, the garri son seeking shelt' r of the gunboat, to whose feast of canister thy were leading the rebels, and repeatedly returning the firs (this is Federal testimony!) quite a number were killed and wounded. What else could have bien expected ? But hour in mind that with all the advantage of position and cumbers on the Confederate side, witl the marked weak ness of tho Foieral works, with all the murder of prisoners alter their surrender, what will an nubiased put!is think when in formed that the losses of the two sides were about equal? I place our killed and wounded at two hundred ani twenty-five; the Feder al loss, all told, three hundred and thirty and this includts those who were dfuwnrd in their effort to escape a number which must have exceeded one hundred men. That the prisocers captured at Fort I'lllow were put in my charge, and that they leceived kind attention and prompt and t fticient med ical aid, see K b. Itec. Doc. 1, pages 1 to 80. I carried off two hundred and nineteen prisoners. For a foi tress carried by storm, all genuine soldiers will testily that the Fed eral loss at Fort Pillow teas unusually light. If you will refer to the Keuel Records, above quoted, you will find that Lieutenant Lera iog, one of the garrioo. testified that "we kept them (the Confederates) back for sev eral minutes, and that at the time the colored troops gave way they did not have an cfiicer left,' thus showing the heavy casualtjjthat must have occurred before the Confederates got inside the work?.

Cleveland leader: The news of the death of Minister TaU ir yesterday was received with feeling of great sorrow in this city, where he has many intimate friends and a large number of admirers. Knowing that Colonel John Hay had been for many years on terms of the most iutimate pnonal friend ship with the great author and statesman, a Leader reporter, late last evening, failed at his residence on Euclid avenue to obtain, if possible, some reminiscences such as only a personal friend can Kive. Colonel Hay had not heard of Mr. Taylor's death, and was much astonished and tfrk'Ted at the an nouncement. He had read ia the morning papers that the minister's condition was tnore hopeful. He had looked for further in formation in the evening paptr, but had tailed to see anything. After a moment's pause, the question was asked in regard to bow long Mr. Taylor was connected with the Tribune. "Oh, a great many yars -J think twenly- Eve, at leant." said Colonel Iay. "lie was city editor, in the day of small things, for many years. I have heard him tell of how he workl in those days. He was city editor, wrote editorial matter, book reviews and everything else, almost. He was worked al most Li Jeatb. but always kept fresh by a simple sacO'od of always writing or reading sonifthin new and solid before going to ted." "Mr. Taylor got hU first name as a trav eler, dki be not ?" "Ha was a gr'at traveler, and yet La yas not. He ceve.-,'ied to be called a traveler, tor be was more Uiin this! He never went f jr the simple pu -pce of pausing away time, as the majority of people He always had a purpose in all his trips, and Ubt purpose V4 to write for the Tribune. His books of rav all appeared tirnt in the form of letters n the Triune. The Vieirs Afoot gave ban bis first natoM reputation, no eld stock in the Tribune, and retained it at , the dsy of bis leatb.-v "His iepuUtu?n for perform rxnCremariaMe literary achieveuueau has oiu-n t,tuZ re marked upon." "And ine remarks are troa. He could do more, I think, i-i a short spac of time than any ether man I ever knew. He woald. if require', wrie u whole page of the Tribune in a gle day. ili review of Dr. Schl.e oiann's nr.t bock, written from advance heet. was remwkably full, and gave such a od idea of the work that it was almost un necessary to read the btc ;!elf. He bad a THE peculiar gift of condensing matter and still retaining every point which the xuthor made. I'erhaps his created feat in this lino was achieved on Victor Hugo's poenn. They ar rived in New York on a ce ita.n morning, and next morning he published nearly a page re view of the work, with several columns of metrical translation, done bo finely that all the oritrinul vior and spirit was retained. In the 'Kcho Ciub' papers, which were pub lished a few years ago in the Atlantic Month ly, the beat idea of bis powjors as an authcr is teen. In thee he prO'1n:5 with remark ab'e hdolity imitations of the poems of the leading authors ot th-; country, which were so close to the oriiinal that without the least thing to indiouto who w.-w being imitnted, any one intiiu.ite with literature could rot t.i'l t) recognize them. These were not parodies: they were imitations writ ten on entirely different subjects, Luton such subjts as the di:l'--rnt authors would be likely to choose. Besides the element of im itation there was a blight vein of caricature running through them. The review ot tha Inn Album, by Robert Browning, was writ ten in the same style as the Echo Club, to a certain extent. Taylor gave it a long review in blank Terse, in Browning's own aty!e. It was supremely ridiculous, to be s ire, and ev erybody biugbed. The secret of Browning's style had been discovered." "Can you tell me something about the trip to tne Icelandic millennial celebration V" "Ch, a party of Americans chartered a ves sel in England and went to the celebration. 1 ay lor went for the Tribune, Cyrm W. Field weut for the fun of it, and Murat Halatead, who also went along, did so on his own ac count and that of ttie Commercial. Just be fore landing it was sugeested that Taylor ought to write a poem on the occasion. So, seating bimself, surrounded as he was by the company, he produced that gem, Iceland's Thousand Years. This was read at the cele bration and immediately translated in the native language and sung in English and Icelandic, lie was named 'Scald,' or poet, in honor of this production." "Where did he marry his wife?" "He married his present wife during bis long stay in Gotha in I3o0. She is the daughter of Hansen, the astronomer. Sir is very accomplished, and in his later work has been of great assistance to hi-n." "Can you tell anything about the progress that has been made upon his work, The Life of Gottlur' "He has devoted ail these years to the work of collection of material, and will leave the work entirely unfinished. The collec tions which he has made are very rich, how ever, and the loss to the literary world, which will result from his leaving it thus un finished, will be inestimable." "What was the nature of his disease?" "It was dropsy of a very deadly nature. He has had two operations performed upon him. At the last fifteen pints of water were drawn away. He had been so robust all his life that he almost refused to give up. He could not have it so." ' After a pause Colonel liny took from his desk a letter, and handed it to the reporter. It was dated in New York, and was written in'a marvellously clear hand, "lhat was written just after the news of ni.s appointment came to him: You will see bow much he was elated over it. That appointment wa3 the crowning glory and honor of his life and cause of his death. It was such a radical change in every way for him be was unable to endure it. His whole habit of life was altered." Upon the reporter remarking upon the beautiful handwriting in the sote, Colonel Hay said: "Ves, he always wrote jut liko that. The compositors on tho Atlantic usd toeay that his wis the best writing they ever had to handle, lie usually prepared his copy for the press on narrow e!ips;of paper, and it couid a La ay a be read with the distinctness of print."

A Conspiracy that Threaten! every Throne in Karope tsUartlins IMs eluHBrra "lade In tho IiTeiKtl satioa ot Socialist I'lotv. London, December 16, What purports to be an accurate and comprehensive suuiiuary of the reports made t th governments of Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, Switzer land, Austria, Spain and Russia, by the cbitla of police of these administrations respecting the six attempts at political assassination that have been made in Europe w.tnin the last few months, has been received here. These re ports were intended to be kept secret, but it is understood that the summary of them was obtained in the following manner: The in vestigations of the pulice in seven of the eight countries named led to the conclusion that there existed an international conspiracy for the assassination of sovereigns; that refugees and exiles of these seven countries were en gaged in it, and that the directing head of the organ zation was to be found iu Switzer land, either at Geneva or Berne, although be not unfrequentiy made visits to J,-ndon. Copies of the reports leading to this conclu sion were sent from Berlin, Rome, Paris, Brussels, Vienna, Madrid end St. Peters burg to the resident of the federal council at Geneva, in order that the Swiss authorities might fully understand the situation, nnd be prepared tor the demand which was to be made upon them for the arrest and incar ceration of this arch-conspirator, and of the co&imitteo which he had gathered around him, These copies, on reaching Geneva, were laid before the council, aad then iven to the clerks for certification. One of these clerks took the opportunity of making a copy or summary ot the contents of each, and this summary is what is understood to have reached London. It is hinted that the clerk is himself a member ot the International committee, but this is uncertain. The sum mary makes evident the fact that the two affairs in Kuatia, the two in Germany, the One in Spain, and the one in Italy, were all instigated, if not directly planned, by the committee in Switzerland. Of tne six assas sins one has been executed, ens died of self ntlicted wounds, or was killed by the sur geons who attended him, two are in prison awaiting death, and two are at liberty. The plans of the committee arei repre sented cj bei2r well conceived and skill fully carried out. T men or women chosen to strike the fatal blows are not aware in every instance cf the power which uses them as its tools. Vera Sas sulitch and Dr. Nobiling were the well in formed and trji'ing instruments of the com mittee, as were also the hsPa.sin or the Rus sian chief of police; but Hoedel, Moncasi and I'essanante were ignorant instrument?. The assassination of the kings and emperors, in the plan of the committee, is only a means to an end; the end being ths complete over turning of the existing order of things, and ie setting up of an universal European re public, based upon the most radical com munistic pnuipiea. t is jn Italy that the revolution is intended to te KrJt effected. The captured correspondence cf the conspir ators in Italy is of a very alarming nature; it leads to the fear that the army has been tampered with, and that if the second at tempt upon the life of King Humbert, which is probably soon fj be made, is successful, a republic will be proclaimed, fhe organiza tion, although calling itself International, has nothing whatever to do with the Inter national socket? of workingmen. That asso ciation no longer extsu. The present one, moreover, is composed, not of workmen, but of literary men, professors, scholars, students and politicians. of Vhocoirraph.

Washington Star: The "daft" people who find their way into the President' room geuerally look Bane enough; but some let their mental weakness be known by their queer questions and btranga actions. Ihey are maneuvered out as soon as possible, but often causo considerable trouble. When a person calls at the Executive Mansion who is so insane as t bi helpless or dangerous he is turned over to the police aDd sent to the in sane asylum or his home. From clues fur nished ly themselves the place fiora which ttey hail is otten discovered, and they tire given transportation thereto at government expense. There are such a number that hare to be sect to the insane asylum that it has been suggested that a special appropriation be made for taking them home, aa it cotts more to maintain them at the government ex pense in tho atylum. Some harmless luna'ica have a method in their madness. At stated periods they pay the White House a visit. THEIK PACKS HAVE BECOME FAMILIAR. Among these is an old gentleman who lives a short distance out in the country, near Bladensburg. He wears a large soft hat, salt and pepper pants, and a snort black coat. His eyes are blu-j and mild, with nothing wild al'Out them, and his hair is gray. He calls regularly once in every two aaonths. II a ccmes in solemnly. Being asked what ha wants, he replies: "1 have come to take my frftat." He tflls then how he has been regularly elected President, and would have come to enter upon his duties sooner, but the work on his farm prevented his leaving home. The ushers talk to him seriously about the matter, and, aa a general thing, he socn leaves perfectly satisfied. The last time he called he was somewhat persistent in de manding "the Presidential chair," iu order "to take his lawful seat." Being expostu lated with, he explained to the ushers that (hey need have no far;. faedid not intend to ibake many cbaagte, and would keep them all in oihee. He didn't know, come to think of it, that he would make any removals at all. He might, however, put Secretary Schurz out of the cabinet. He was asked if he had a wife. He replied, "No." He was then told that no man unmarried could be President. He left immediately, with the expressed determination to marry as soon as he got home, and then come back and "taxe his seat." THE FENUSVIVANIA VISITOR. A man come3 down here from Pennsylva nia about five times a year. He ia about thirty-five year3 old, and dresses neatly and comfortably. He demands to fee the Presi dent. The treasury and the White House have been deeded to him, and he wants the possession of both. The last time he called he wore a pair of badly used-up shoes and got slightly noisy. When put outside the door he Baid: "I will submit this time, aa I do not wish to make Hayes houseless; but the next time I come I want no foolishness. I want him to move out promptly. I hate to be so harsh, but my shoes are wearing out and I must have my rights. Just tell him how the case stands." ANOTHER FROM MAINE. A woman from Maine walked in one day in a dress like that of a Quaker ess. She (talked into the east room, and, spreading a large bible which she car ried uno'er her arm on one of the win dow seats, announced her text and be gan in a loud voice to hold forth on the ne cessity of beirg born again. Sergeant Dins more told her she must not make a noise. She calmly told him that her mission was to convert President Hayes, and she had come to fuliill it. An "fibre being made to escort her to the door she again became loud and quoted verse after veise from the bible. Af ter much noise, but no active resistance, she was gotten out on the porch and the door was closed, Sha left announcing her deter mination to convert Mr. Hayes, and repeat ing scriptural texL all the way down the con crete walk to the gate. Ohio's representatives. A man lrom Ohio called a few days ago. He had a theory that the world was coming to an end in a few days if he was not made superintendent of tlie naval observatory, in view that he might, by his knowledge of astronomy, avert the impending collision of tho earth wilh ail the planets. He was promised the position and left satisfied. Ohio, by the by, furnishes quite a number of sut jocts. A woman from that State, about forty years old, with a g'ay hat, a light woolen cloak, handsome brown eyes and reg ular features, came quietly in last week. She said that there was one thousand dollars up that she had been elected governor of Penn sylvania on the Greenback ficket. She had only the week before, gone to that State to see about it, aud, not getting much satisfac tion, bad come to the President to have the question finally settled. She exhibited what she calledjber "credentials." Toe important document was the ticket issued by the Green barkers in the recent eleetiona in Pennsyl vania nnd bad on them', of course, the names of all the nominees of that party. She was told that the President could do nothing for her, and was referred to Attorney-General Devens. A RAW-BOSED FELLOW from Maine is seen no more at the White House. He used to be a regular visitor. He would march in evtry morning, walk up to one of the usher3, and, with a military sa lute, hand him a letter. The letters were al ways addressed to "Hon. K. B. Hayea, from Ohio. President of the United States, U. S. of America, Weitern Continent, White. House, District of Columbia." These letters were always opened, but were such scrawls that no one could read them. This probably suited the man exactly, as all he seemed to want was to 'Ifcliver the letters promptly at nice o'clock every morning. Lafet summer a but ly lunatic raised a ro-v in the east room because he was tsld by Serjeant Dinsmore '.hat the President could not see him. He was put out. Dinsmore watched and saw that he went around back of the house. He stepped to the south end of t!;9 east room just in time to grab the big intruder as h was comiig through the window. The fellow looked crest-fallea, and said, apologetically, "I or.ly watted to see the Hon. Mr. Hayes." The "tioddess of liberty just stepped down lrom the dome of the capitol" came back the ether we&k, and being refused admittance te the President's room, threatened to bring down her "reserves." These cortsiatad, she said, of all the statues in tiie old hail of rep resentativeii, and that of Columbus in the east front of the capitol, and of the group of backwoodsman and Indian fighting. A HABD-LOOKINO MALE CUSTOMER, He was about forty years old came iu one morning, "i am the man," he said in a roar, "who closed tne rebellion. It is a matter of necessity that I should see the President." He was told that the President did not re ceive visitors Rt the White House. He saw every one thct called at 414 Tenth Btreet. This it the number of the police station on that street. The man went promptly to 414 Tenth street and took a seat. After sitting there a while the keeper asked what he wanted. "Oh!" he said, "I have just called to see the President." The keeper took in the situation at a glance, and, saying, "Step this way," conducted his visitor into one of the cells. A Dayton, Ohio, man came in one day witlj a big tin box full of pa pers. Ihis constituted the creed of a new religion which God had deputed him to make known to the world. What he wanted was the President to grant him a charter Und h,9 would then start on a business basis. He gave his name as Jacob Schaffer. His particular fear was newspaper men. He thoaght that some of the fraterni ty had conspiied to get the contents of his box and publish his creed before he secured the charter. For this reason he said no one should read his papers. His wife is evident ly also insane. The day Jacob Schaffer put in his appearance at the White House, Jane Sohiffer, at Djtca. telegraphed to the Ves ident as follow ; "Mr. President Jacob will be wilh yoa to-morrow to explain his grand mission. Treat him well." A Remarkable Phenomenon. A correspondent of the Pioneer writing from Mirzipore, calls attention to a phenomenon which he considers worth recording. Early one morning large quantities of fish of every description were sen coming to the surface along both backs of the river gasping and dying; all the crabs came out and hung ia clusters to ine clay, or lurked in the grass above the water level, and largo eels, leaving the water, lay like snakes along the edge. The next djy great numbers of fish, soiae of euormous sie, Heated past, and en. leavers were uade to induce tha natives to briDg some on shore for manure,- but as their fath ers had never employed fish for such a pur pose, they declined to make such an innova tion. The river was high, but not in full flood, and the water, probably on account ol tbe long drougbt, was intensely and abnor mal turbid. The death of the fish is attri buted to tn is peciiisrity, fof the particles of earth held in suspense appear to have itup,e nated the gills and stopped breathing, it La i r.it, however, been ascertained which cf the amuenta of the Ganges or Jumma had caused, tbe mischief, FUL1V3ER, BURTOM & C (SUCCESSORS TO SLEDGE, McKAY & CO.) -t .
