GRAPHIC AN1> OTHER MATTER.
A COST RAPT.
The remarkable eoutrast between U? an
nual message of President Lincoln and that
of Jeff Davis, will attract attention every
where. While tbe showing by President Lin
coln of the condition of the loyal State# aud
the people thereof, will be a subject of con
gratulation by all tite loyal, Jeff's frank ad
missions ot the military mishaps which have
overtaken the cause of the treason of the times
la almost every quarter, and hit. exposition of
the pressing necessity for a more rigorous en
forcement of their policy of conscriptlou, to
the extent of holding ery substitute in their
service and forcing into it all who have pro
cured substitutes at auv enormous sacrifice,
sad also of# taking all available means of
everybody who can be reached by forced
loans?taxation?will spread dismay through
ont hi? dominions.
If the message and proclamation of amnesty
ct President Lincoln shall find its way among
the people of tbe South, they must have the
effect of greatly increasing tae discontent of the
non-slaveholders in the rebe'llous Stater, with
tie additional sacriflcee of life and property
they are now be>ng called on tomake; in order
to give the despotism over them a la^t chance
for penna nency. Aa far as they are concerned,
the Pre&idcnt's amnesty grants them entire and
absolute pardon or condonenient it they will
hereafter stand by the Government in its ef
forts to restore them to all the rights and proper
ty thfy ever enjeyed as cit'zens of the United
States. That they will com? forward to accept
these terma, by thousands, whenever they cun
hope that the Government's protection can be
extended to them as offered, we feel very sure;
knowing as we do trom a hundred different in
formants lat?ly from their midst, the depth and
earnestness of their iudignation against those
over them for the time being who have brought
them ir.to their present condition.
PRISONERS.
The following prisoners, sent in by the Pro
\*el Marshal General of the defenses south of
the Potomac, were committed to the Old Cap
itol yesterday t?y order of C-pt. Todd:?Wm
Rolls, sent to Alexandria trom Fairfax Court
House, ha? never taken the or.th, and is regarded
:is a dangerous person. Thos. R. Alexander,
sent In as above, also disloyal and dangerous,
and reported to be one of the br.nd who recently
captured men and mules at Devereaux Station.
Alexander was recently released irom the Old
Capitol prison.

Gkovkk's Bvsra it.?We ar?glad to have to
-ay thft the l^neti: complimentary to Mr.I^e?u
urd Orover last evening was a benefit indeed
Ths> house was not only crowded, but the au
dience-was perhaps the most distinguished ever
gathered witbiu the walls of a theater. Amon*
the distinguished peifconages present were Mr.
Seward, Secretary of State; I,ord Lyons, Baron
Gerolt, Mr. Ta.sara, M. Stoeckel, aud the en
tire Russian Legation, tho Russian Ad*n,r .'
and bome twenty officers of the fleet. In com
pliment to this distinguished representation of
diplomats, the private boxes m which they sat
were dreped with their respective natlttaai
dags. Their presence together i indicative of
?he tnUn.lt crrain/r existiug among the diplo
matic corps.
The personal compliment rhn* paid to Mr
Orover by his distinguished visitors is a high
one, and the presence al-o of the .-lite of Wash
ington in such nuin>>er5 was e jrally compli
mertary to hint as a manager and a? a gentle,
man who has deserved well ot the community
in which he resides.
MAJOR liETI'l. IIILLCi K ? REPORT.
This able and interesting document gives a
nummary ot military operations dnring the
past year. Referring to Leo's invasion of
Maryland and Pennsylvania, he says, "To
General Meade belongs the houor of a well
earned vie tory in one of the greatest and b*st
:ought battles of the war." When the rebel
;:rmy was about to move on those States; Gen'l
l?ix sent all his available force from Norfolk
and Fortress Monro* tip York river for the
purpose of cutting off Lee's commnuication3
with Richmond, and of attacking the |)Uu?,
which was known to ba at that time defended
by enly a handful of militia. The expedition
tai'ort to accomplish the singlf o hject tor which
it bad been fitted out. The ai lure resulted, it
i" a>nged, from tbe inefficiency of one of the :
jvreral* commanding.
in spertking of the attack on Fort Sura.er on j
the '.th of April, says: " It being unsuccessful,
l.rtliing apparently remained to be done bv the
land lorot-s. A si<?pe of Charleston and its d?
;i'PC< i by lend ha'l never been cc>u:?uii>lutsd,
m.d therefore v/as no pari of the plan.
Interring to the events in con-iectlou with
Viek burg, he s*ys: "No more brilliant oil
?>U it -ban that or Gen. Grant can bc? found in
i ilitary history."
It having been alleged and ex'ensively pub- 1
listed that Gen. Gran: bad disobeyed the or- I
d?-rs< f hie superiors, Gen. HalleeU says the ;

\ lowing:
LlBBY PKI0OW, /
Richmond, Va., December t,1W3. {
| Captain C. McRca Stlph, A. A. and 1. General :
Sib: In answer to your communication of
this date referring to statements that have been
made in regard to the distribution of clothing
and rations sent to Richmond by the United
States Government for Federal prisonera of
war, the committee in charge of the distribution
of clothing desire to submit the following state
ment
When the committee entered on their duties,
November K'th, only a email supply of cloth
ing had been received at Richmond To secure
an equitable distribution of this to tho^e who
were most needy, and to ascertain what futur*
i^onsigrmeuts would b?* required for their com
fort, it wa<* deemed advisable to make an in
spection of the clothing of ali the prisoners. A
careful inspection was therefore made of all
the prisoners ot war at Belle Isle and iu Rich
mond, aud a record made of the condition of
each article of their clothing.
While this inspection was in progress is-U'-s
of blankets and such clothing as had been re
ceived, were made to those who were mo*t
needy.
Since the arrival of the last shipment of
clothing. November 22d, two members of the
committee had been constantly engaged in the
distribution, which is now almost complete.
The committee is unable to prepare a state
ment of the amount of clothing Issued, In time
for this communication.
Statements in detail will be prepared, how
ever, as soon as possible of the amount of
clothing received aud issued, and to whom
issued, and the amount required to fnlly supply
the wants of the prisonera now here; a copy of
which we respectfully request may b? for
warded by flag of truce to the proper U. S
military authorities.
A shipment of clothing is now being made to
Danville sufficient to supply the wants ef the
prisoners of war in that plac*.
The Committee take pleasure In sitting tha1
every facility for the inspection of the prisons
and the distribution of the clothing has been
afforded thom by the Confederate military
authorities.
The duties of the Committee wer? limited by
the order putting them on duty, exclusively to
the distribution of clothing.
The fact that rations provided by the United
States Government aud by aid societies in the
North, were being issued to pn.souers of war
on Belle Isle and in the prisons in Rlchnioud,
has however, frequently come under the ob
servation of the members ot the committee
while in the discharge of tho duty assignod
them.
Very respectfully, your obedient servants,

The visitors to the Russian fleet went down

The Ella bad about 250 Congressmen and
ethers. aud tbvir ladies on board?the ladies

11 o'clock, but the non-amvaj ot the visitor*
delayed the departure of the Klla wntil half,
rast 1?, and the Kirg Philip did not ret off
until hall an hour later.
The western States were better repreteoted
than the middle or eastern. Speaker Cot rax
and Mr. McPherson, Clerk of the House, and
their ladies, were among the party. There
were bat lew aaval officers among the party,
as thi <ee In the Yard could not be spared from
their duties. Paymaster Cunningham, of the
Yard, howerer, accompanied the visitors.
ConHDodore Harwood waa on hand, getting all
things arranged in proper order, and superin
tending the starting of the party.
! The party would no doubt hare been much
'< larger, but for the threatening aspect of the
I weather.
! About 2 o'clock, a a u perb entertainment, pro.
vided by the Russian Minister, Baron Stcecket,
was se t for; h for the guests. The table was bril
liantly decorated, and especially in the floral
war, the Russian Minister having giren cart'a
blanche to Mr. John Watt (well known as in
charge of the White Honse conservatories for 11
years)toexert his genius to theutmostin honor
ol' the occasion. Among the beautiful decora
tions provided by Watt were five mrt<piifloent
urns or vases, containing three hunured rare
japonicas with other flowers, mossed up with
growing iry, Ac., Ac. The larger vases occu
pied the center 01 the table, tapering off in each
direction with smaller ones; and their exquisite
fragrance lent a great charm to the banquet.
The banquet in elegance and profusion was
in accordance with the adornments, and was
worthy i'f the distinguished entertainer aid the
great cation represented.
Wo are unable, at this late hour, to give
further particulars of the interesting affair.
Tna Stami?*i?* at UiBHrtonu? Exciting
Scnes.?The stampede of the horses iu the
s ock yard at Tamp Stonemau ((Jiesboro
Point) night before last. Is described aa a very
exciting affair. It appears that the horses were
not fresh ones, but had been worn down at the
front and recruited and were sent to this camp
preparatory to again being sent to the front,
and that among them a large number had been
placed iu the enclosure on that evening. Th?
enclosure was a rail fence about five feet high,
ami was regarded as a strong one; but the
hors-s. when they got to frolicking and ca
vorting, crowded against it with such force as
to thiow it down. At the time?near eleven
0 clock?the watchmen were on duty, but the
hurtes breaking dowu the enclosure in two
places, ami bursting forth in such immense
force, they found it impossible to stop them.
Indeed- th? sttuttpede was made in such a mas:,
and with H11 ch violence that it was a foolhardy
experiment tor any numl>er ol men less than
art army to attempt to stop the frightened ani
mals. and away they went m two masses,
numbering over live tliousa altogether one
taking the road towards th- city, and the other
s down the conntry.
? The people li\ing alon? tbe road as well as
the cava'rv patrol hearing the racket, were ap
prised of the affair some minutes before they
saw the approaching host of hors e, and at
tempted tt lint to check thorn, but ineffectu
ally, and away they went, some as they became
exhaus'ed, taking to the field- aud woods.
Great consternation wasocta?ion-d,especially
along the Marlboro road, and we hear that
some person-! who came/?out Ln the road nar
rowly escaped with their lives. Three young
m?-ii who wi re on the way to the city, and met
the tii'ove, one man. wis^r than his comrades,
rode into a fence corner, leaving the others tu
con'irue '.heir way, when on came the drove,
makir.g a tr. mendoi'.s. dust, and the tramp
of their ffcet =ci;r?diug similar r.j 'hunder.
The traveler, were instantly engulphed, but
manfully kept their horses h aded towards
Wa*Mngtnn until th?y hau plunged three or
four lil?a deep in the rear of the advancing
column of horse flesh, wh- linding that it
w?o impossible to go fUr'Her and tliat their
live.- were m danger, ihoy, with difliculty
tnrnea their hordes headj, aud putting ppur^
tu th> m, ihey wre soon in tho front rauk, the
others closely pressing them for some miles,
w h. n they managed to escape, by a by-road
Seme of the pickets on the roa*ls in Prince
(.leorge s, it is ^ai.i. bearing the sound, thou -hf
that it was an advance of the rebels, and fired
their pieces and ran to the forts for refuge.
The most exciting scene, however, was at the
Navy Yard Bridge, where theguards attempted
to sto;? them, and in a shore time they had the
bridge blocked up, when those behind crowdiug
on and not gett ing through, di vided and jumped
into the branch, where a number were drowned,
others swimming the bruu?h in safety. A large
number attempted t?> swim the branch above
the bridge, and some were also drowned here.
A number ot citizei.* were soon out, aud tht>
boys went in and extricated many of the terror
stricken animals. I
Tber ? are still about six huudred of the
horses missing, over eleven hundred having
been picked up in tha c ity yesterday, a large
numb?-r at Bladeusburg, and a still larger num
ber at Marlboro" aud Port Tobaceo, which it is !
thought will be went to the depot to-day.
Lieut. Ball, who has charge of the depot, be- !
lleyes that the loss will be less than oae hun
dred horses, when the scattered ones ar? all
collected, but others are of the opinion that the
loss will prove to be nearer one thousand.
