the others departing without asking leave,
stealing the horses of their officers, and
striking off through the country indifferent
directions, where many oi them were soon
engaged in indiscriminate plunder and

MMACrioX IS THE WEST.
A large public meeting was held in Mem
phis Monday of last wees,consisting chiefly of
citizens who had actively sustained the ‘Con
federacy’ in Tennessee, Mississippi and Ar
kansas. Lion. J. T. Swayne, a distinguished
Jndge in that portion of the Stste ; B. I).
.Sabers, a- conspicuous secession orator in
18til; and Colonel Grace, who drew the re
solutions for the secession of Arkansas,
•* were present and addressed the meeting.
These gentlemen eloquently and earnestly
counselled the people to renew their allegi
ance to the Union in good faith, to forget
the hatreds and prejudices of the past, and
to tco-operate .with the Government in se
curing the complete restoration of civil au
thority. They regard the war as at an end,
and the power of the Federal Government
as fully vindicated. As to the slavery ques
tion, they expressed the view that it had
been decided bytbe war itself, and that the
peoples throughout the 2jouth should adapt
themselves i^s quickly as possible to the
condition of universal freedom. The
speeches delivered by these prominent and
* influential gentlemen, and the resolutions
adopted <>n the occasion, breathed the spirit
of sincere loyalty to the Government of tlie
United States.
( DA VIS VAV.UliY £W*WT.
A letter from Ksleigh says that the cav
alry escort, under Wade llampton. which
* accompanied Jefferson Davis on his flight,
. arw deserting rapidly and coming into our
liana, aad surrendering themselves prison
ers of war.
They state that of the tifteen hundred men
who were picked out on account of their
supposed fldelil) and trustworthiness to act
as a guard to Davis and his party, most of
them are dissatisfied with Hampton's refusal
to surrender aloug with the main body ot
Jsinston’s army. The same dissatisfaction
eciet* among the officers, a number of whom
•have also abandoned the enterprise, fearing
ileat if tb»y are captured they will be treated
4s outlawsr These deserters predict that
Davis will not have more than a corporal’s
guard left by the time he reaches the Mis.
sisaippi, if he succeeds in getting that far.
FRENCH COMMERCE ENDANGERED.
A special Washington telegram to the
New York Times says that “it has been
vaguely reported heretofore that President
Juarez, of the Mexican Republic, had issued
letters of marque lor reprisals against
French commerce. This is now an estab
lished fact. 1 have the anthooity for so sta
ting ot a gentleman who saw four of these
documents a month ago, intended tor the
Pacific waters; and it was stated at the same
time that sim.lar letters lor the Atlantic
waters had been issued.”
T II E ASSASSINATION-—SECRETARY
STANTON TO MINISTER ADAMS.
The Cork Herald publishes an official tele
gram from Secretary Stautoa to the United
States Legation at London, detailing the in
cidents of the assassination, and adding :
The murderer of t e President has beeu
discovered, and evidence obtained that these
horrible crimes were committed in execu
tion of a conspiracy deliberately planned
and set on foot by Rebels, under pretense of
avenging the South and aiding the R-bel
cause; but it is expect*d that the immediate
perpetrators will be caught. The levliug oc
cas oted by these atrocious crime is so gn a',
a .dden, and overwhelming, that 1 cannot at
present do more than communicate them to
you. At the earliest moment yesterday the
President ca Ld a Cabiuct meeting, i»t which
Gen. Grant was present. Ho was more
cheerful and haj>py than 1 had * ver set n him.
He rejoiced at the near prospect of a firm
an 1 durable pi ace at home and abr ad, wl ich
manifested in a marked degree the soundoi ss
and honesty of hi dispositou, and 1 he tender
aud torgi'iug spirit that so emiuintly dist n
guished him. Public notice had luen giveu
that he aud Gen. Grant woull be present
at the theatre, aud the opportunity of ad
ding the Lieutenant-General to the number
of victims to be murdered was no doubt
seized tor the fitting occasion of executing
the p ans which appear to have been in pre
paration tor some weeks; but Gen. Grant
was compelled to lie absent, and thus es
caped tho designs upon him.
It is needless for me ti say au\thing in
regatd to the influences which this atrocious
murder ot the President may exercise upon
tfteaiiairsof the country. Rut 1 will only
add that, though hornble and atrocious as
are the plans that have beeu resolved on by
the enemies of the country, they are not
likely, in any degree to impair the public
spirit, or postpone the complete and final
overthrow of the Rebellion.
In profound grief tor the events whirti It
has become my duty to communicate to yon,
1 have the honor to be, very respectfully,
your obedient servant,
Knwts M. Stsxtov.
THE NEW TENNESSEE SENATORS.
On Thursday last, Hon. Joseph S. Fowler,
and lion. David T. Patterson, were elected
United States Senators for the State o! Ten
neasee. The New Yoik Times gives the
following sketches of the now Senators :
Hon. Joseph S. Fowler is about 12 years
of age, a native of Steubenville, Ohio. He
went to Tennessee in 1*44, ami w as appointed
Professor ot Mathematics in Franklin Col
lege, near NashTillc, which position he til.'eJ
w.th eminent ability. He resigned his
portion in 1*4*. and afterward was called to
the Presicem-y of other institutions ot I 'arn
ing.
When the rebellion broke out 4 e proclaimed
himself an ardent supporter of the govern
ment, and was for putting down treason with
the bayonet. When Tennessee seceded from
the t'nion he left the State and went to
Springfield, III., to engage in the practice of
Uw. hating i|iialitied himself and determined
years before to pursue that profession, lie
remained there until March, 1*62, when G >v.
Johnson gave him the position of Comptroller
of the Treasury of Tennessee, after the reb
els had been driven out. He has always b.-en
anti-slavery, is a thorough radical, and is
one of the nrst scholars of the South. He
is a warm and intimate friend ot his col
league, Hon. Dav.d T. Patterson, and both
enjoy the fullest confidence of the President.
Hon. David T. Patterson is about 45 scars
of age, a citizen of Greene county, and an
able lawyer. He was for a number of years
Circuit Judge in East Tennessee, and was re
garded as one of the first jurists of the
State. He stood by the government in its
darkest hour, and in ali the trials and perils
of the people of Hast Tennessee he kept the
faith. He is radically Union in politics, und
is a son-in-law of President Johnson.
Dk Mount's Successor.—That desirable
and responsible position, the Presidency of
th? Corps Legislatif of France, vacant by
the death of the Duke de Horny, has been
lilleJ, not by the appointment of M. Thiers,
as was expected by some, but by the nomi.
nation of Count Walowski, who is generally
supposed to be a ion of Napoleon 1. by a
Polish lady, from whom the snrname is de
rived. _ __
The State ok Eutkt.—Every one is aware
that Egvpt is in au exceptional state just
now. in consequence ui me euioigeacies
of the great American war it has become a
vast cotton field, iustead of being, as in all
former tirais, the granary of the East.—
Ti.is sadden transformation is not uulikely
to bring va-t political changes with it. Mul
titudes of the leliabs and small holders of
land have been deprived of the present aud
previous Viceroys of their land on account
of its increased value as a cotton-producing
soil. Toey are, of course, discoutenten
with the Government, and not well-di-posed
towards tho Franks, tor whose sake they
know the cotton is grown. In addition to
this, the murrain among tho cattle has, du
ring the last two years, swept so many away
that distant parts require to be scoured in
order to provide meat for the Cairo market.
When tbe supplies fail for several days, as
has been occasionally the case, meat is only
to be had at famine prices, and the scram
ble before the butchers’ shops is a sight
not to bo forgotten. In one of these scram
bles several children were crushed to death
in the crowd. In addition, it is a well-known
taet that over the whole Mahomedan world
just now there are floating rumors and pre
dictions of a coming ascendancy, during
which the Crescent is to stand above
the Cross, and the faith of the East
is to revive again. As the .gnorant
populace cannot reason or look to the
future, toey think the shortest way to ac
complish these desirable results is as in Sy
ria and Hindostau, to massacre the Chris
tian populations of the land. The late in
surre :tion in Upper Egypt was partly politi
eil for the reasons assigned above, and also
partly religious. The fellah joined with the
bedaure. Mioi«*h was tbe headquarters of
it. An English clergyman, a friend of the
writer, who was at Sioot, saw s earners with
soldiers come in only just in time to save
he bulk ol the Christian population of the
place. At tho same time that this was go
ing on in Upper Egypt the population of
Cairo were in a most excited state; K.COi
soldiers were suddenly but quietly intro
duced into the city, and as soon aa the intel
ligence came that the insurrection at Minieh
was put down, the mind of the people seem
ed to' tiow back into its usual sullen, apa
t ,etic cour»e again. But who can say bow
long this is to last, and would it not be ad
viaable that England should, as well as
France, increase a little her number of ships
of war at Alexander and Suez, and let the
rnling Powers here know that they would be
called strictly to an account for any fatal
consequences that might be the result of
want of due precaution on their part with
regard to the security of the Etr pean pop
ulation of the city ? _

The New York Herald says;
The sudden disappearance of the cause of the

Hotel, In the City of Kii hniond,
Va, and Fiunres attached there*
to, for Mule at Auctlon.-tt the icquest
of the owner, Mr. John P Ballard, we shall sell
at public auction, on the premiccs. on THURS
DAY, the 1st June, IH65, at i2 o’clock M., the
truly valuable property knowu as the Ballard
Hotel. This property is so well and favorably
known throughout tue United States that a mi
nute description of it is deemed unnecessary.—
The Hotel was partially completed bclore, but
finished since the war, and was built after the
most approved architecture, the material:! and
workmanship of the best order, the front being
uf granite and iron, and of modern style, having
all the conveniences incident to a first classes
tablishmmt, and regarded the best arranged one
in the South.
The premises arc in perfect preservation except
as to painting and cleaning, which are now in
progress; so that by the day of sale it can be
ready for occupancy. The Hotel contains lit
rooms is six stories high, with offices and stores
fronting on Franklin street A sketch of the lot
will be shown at the sale.
The H tei. until it was closed last year, enjoyed
a large and lucrative patronage; and when it
shall be r*opened under the present favorable
auspices, cannot fail to do a much larger and
more profitable business, for the reason, amongst
others, that the recent contiagration destroyed
quite a number ot hotels.
To capitalists it presents great inducements, os
there are a number of applicants to rent the pro
perty; and to hotel keejiers no better opportunity
to make money can be oflered. To those who
may be unacquiinieu wiiii tuu properly 11 may
not be amir-s 10 say. that it cost originally more
than 1150 (KiO, when building was cheaper than
It now is.
After the sale of the Hotel, the Fixtures and a
portion of the fuiniture will be sold, consisting
of 28 very large Mirrors, the Cornices. Chande
liers, Clocks, Iron Safe. C-unters and Desks,
Steam Boilers, Steam Engines. Steam Tables.
Washing Machines, and many other articles too
numerous to mention, and possession at once
(Tiven, so that the house can be opeued at an
early day. .
Terms for the real estate—One-quarter cath:
balance at one, two and three years, for bonds
bearing interest, the same payable half yearly,
secured by a trust deed, or all cash, at tho option
of the purchaser.
For the personal effects, cash. Tho taxes for

The exchange hotel, in the city of
Richmond, to be leased at auction, for
three yearafrom 1st July next, with the privilege
of renewal for two other years, on terms to Re fix
ed by competent persona, mutually chosen for the
purpose. Thla truly valuable Hotel will be lease
at anction, on the premises, on lUfcSDAY. the
16th May. 1866. at 12 o’clock. M. The Exchange
is not only first class, bnt ia among the l rgest
and best arranged hotels in the South, and has
heretofore enjoyed a large and lucrative patron
age. It contains more than one hundred rooms,
and is so favorably known to the traveling public
(North snd South.) that » further description is
deemed unnecessary. The recent conflagration,
bv which the principal business portion of onr
city waa destroyed, including several hotels, has
created a great demand for hotels, and conso
nuently it is believed that the present oilers
unusual advantages to persons to engage in that
branch of buslnes'. The hotel needs some re
pairs, but by the expenditure or a few thousand
dollar* it could in a short time be put in good
order, ao that It could p-otubly be opened hy 1st
July next. The lessee will be expected to keep
a first cla?s hotel, aud will bo required to put the
premises in repair and to pay the taxes thereon.
