The tales will continue until the number of animals is reduced in proportion to the reduction of the armies, now going on rapidly. There are in the armies of the Potomac, of the Tennessee, and of Georgia, probably FOUR THOUSAND OF THE FINEST SIX-MULE TEAMS IN THE WORLD. Many of them were bought in the beginning of the war, as young mules, accompanied the armies in all their marches and camps, and are thorough y brokeu, hardened by exercise, gentle aud familiar, from being bo long surrounded by the soldiers. The whole South is stripped of firming stock, nnd ti e North also has suffered from the drain of animals, taken to supply the aruies. These animals are sold at public auction; THEY WILL NOT BRING ANYTHING LIKE THEIR TRUE VALUE, and such opportunities for farmers to get working animals to stock their farms, and for drovers and dealers in stock to make good speculations hy purchasing them and disposing of them in tho Sooth, will never occur sgain.

To the Editor of the Chronicle : Among the numerous misapprehensions exist ing In reference to the restored government of Virginia, and requiring correction, is the one much adverted to—that, at the late election, dis loyal men were allowed to vote, and that their votes elected disloyal men. This is a clear mistake, at least so far as my knowledge -extends. In the counties of Eliza I'dh City, York, Warwick, James City, and the city of Williamsburg, elections for county oflieers were held on the 7th Instant, and no one was al lowed to vote who had not taken the oath of •al legiance to the United States, and who did not, at the time he oil'crcd to vote, take the oath pre scribed by the amended Constitution of the 8tate. That oath not only swears the party taking it to the supremacy of the Federal Union and its laws over the State Constitution and laws, but that he has not, since the first day of January, 1864, voluntarily given aid and comfort to those in rebellion against the United Slates. This oath was not only taken in the counties already named, but, I am informed, on the East ern Shore, in Norfolk, Portsmouth and Alexan dria city and county. In Norfolk city the com missioners, as I learn from one of the members direct from that city, went still further, and would not allow any to vole who had not taken the oath of allegiance to the United .States before the first of January, 1864. Then, as only loyal men voted, it cannot be that disloyal men were elected, unless it be that loyal men preferred disloyal representatives to loyal ones, or that those that took the exacting oaths prescribed committed deliberate perjury— both of which suppositious are wholly iiratioual and inadmissible. if there* has been a disloyal man thus far elect ed, I do not know him. And so of Governor Peirpoint’s appointments. He has not only adopted a high standard of mo ral and intellectual fitness, but all his appointees are, I believe, without exception, pre-eminently loyal. Mayor Mayo was not an original appoint ment of his, and if the Governor tie but allowed to go quietly on with the work of organization and reconstruction he has so auspiciously begun, no loyal man need fear the result. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, 1, Jos. Seoab. * TRIAL OF JEFFERSON DAVIS-A PLEA FOB THE EX-PRESIDENT. From the London Times, June 6. For the next few weeks public attention In America will probably be concentrated on the proceedings fo lie takrn against the captive lead ers of the Confederate secession. The murder of President Lincoln has roused in the Northern breast a feeling more akin to implacability than has existed at any period of the war. It is strange, that in the crisis of the struggle, at a time when the most sanguine were inclined to despair of conquering tiio South, there was comparatively little animosity toward the men who hod apparently overthrown the Union. Not only were the military geuius of General I.ce and the heroism of Jackson, the subjects of Northern l.n( il.a tw.IDI.Mil of II. ft. vis, hi* firmness anil courage, and the mastery he had gained over the section of the American people which foil'> wed him, were duly ac knowledged. But the spirit of revenge, which could not be excited by disaster, ha* now fol lowed indignation produced by an odious deed. The declaration of President Johnson, that trea son should be puuisbed, has been received with general approbation thsougkout the North; and there are uot wanting those who interpret the President’s words to mean that the Confederate leaders shall expiate their offence by death, and who maintain that it is just and expedient that thia should be the end. Wo cling, however, to the Lellef that when the horror excited by the act of Booth has been somewhat mitigated by time, wiser and mom generoasfcouDaels will pre vail. There are, indeed, already signs that the ominous threat* of the President and the savage clamors of some of the Republican politicians excite apprehension in a respectable section of the community. The arguments of those who say that the Southern leaders have caused tho deaths of thou sands. and that as the man who murders oue vic tim suffers death, so the mau who murders a mul titude ought not to escape, arc as fallacious as they are cruel. There can be no comparison be tween private ctime committed for gain or re venge, and a political act which has the sanction of several millions of people, and is supported by their lives and fortunes. Mr. Davis aud the other confederate politicians were merely the representatives of a great community, which formerly believed it had a right to dissolve a political league, and to defend the South by force of arms against those who would compel it to return to a Federal alliance which was no longer suited to its in terests. Fiom their position in the Union as it existed before secession, they were called upon to bear office, and were, ia fact elected to it by universal suffrage. Such au act differs very far even from the treasons which have been common io Kuropc, when some ill-disposed persons have excited a partial and hopeless rising. A commu nity which has carried on war for four years, and has been treated as a belligerent, not only by its own adversary, but by all civilized countries, is entitled to be placed in a position different from that of a riotous county, and may well cover the acts of those who administered it* affairs. We may hope, then, that the United State* Gov ernment will deal in a generous spirit with those fallen ]H)litieians. The chief men ot the Confed eracy are now in its power. Jefferson Davii, Vice-l’resident Stephens, and several of the Gov ernors of the Southern Hutes, are in the prisons of the North. The military leaders are on pa role. and are. we presume, protected by the terms of tbeir capitulations though it seems there is a report that General Fee is to be arrested and brought to trial. But if the Government prose cute the Confederate President and one or two of liis chief colleagues, it will probably be euougli to satisfy whatever of vindictive feeling exist* in the minds of Americans. The grand jury in Washington lias found a tine bill for treason against Mr. Davis, and the arrests still continue. But wo may trust that these measures will not l*e followed by acts of vengeance, which can add nothing to the strength of the Government, and must envenom still further the animosities which the war has produced. Prom the Cincinnati Enquirer, June lGtli, THE CLERGY AT LOGGERHEADS. A very pretty tight, as the thing stand*, has got itself up between the Right Rev. Protestant Episcopal Bishop Mcllvalne, of Ohio, and White house. of Illinois, over one Rev. Cracraft, a Pres byter of the Ohio Diocese, once resident in this city, but,of late, preaching politics at Galesburg, in the .State and Diocese of Illinois. Neglecting to report himself to the Bishop of the latter— who, it seems, does not favor party harangues from the pulpit of hits church—and thereby, while within his territorial, keeping freo from his official jurisdiction, the Uev. Cracraft had a good time, and succeeded in splitting the body of Christ at Galesburg into factious, which were considerably more lively individually than they were collectively conducive to Christian unity.— Complaint, by a part or the Galesburg congrega tion, to the Bishop of Illinois, necessarily led to a reference or the matter to the Bishop of Ohio, upon two seta of specific ttions framed by the former, to wit: for political preaching; and for officiating beyond the canonical period without taking the preseilbed measures to place himself under the jurisdiction of the local hierarch. As party religion is in vogne in the diocese of Ohio, the convenient standing committee here, to which the case was referred, found no diffi culty in ignoring the political preaching branch of the complaint. In respect to the other branch, the defendant plead guilty, and received a cen sure so mild that it read* like a commendation; which was followed up by a private letter in which his style of political preaching was pretty warmly approved. In the meantime, the Bishop of Illinois peremptorily forbade the Rev. Cra craft to officiate at Galesburg, and all parties took to writing epistles, which are very apostoli cal in phraseology, but not without considerable pungency in spirit. The Bishep of Illinois pro poses to re try the case, which the Bishop of Ohio forbids, on the ground that, os one trial has been irad, it is illegal to put the defendant in jeopardy again upon the same charge and in this he Is sustained by the canons. The Rev. Cracraft has given notice that lie will go on preaching, and the Bishop of Illinois has refused to recognise him as of hie diocese; and here the thing stands, tne parties casting anything bat fraternal regards upon each other. The Bishop of Ohio is evidently the best shys ter, but the worst gentleman. Technically he lias kept the law on his side, and has screened an of fender in a foreign diocese by a process which ex hibits a good deal more of the cunning of the attorney than of the honorable delicacy looked for in a dignified Christian prelate. The corres pondence has found its way into the profanw newspapers, and the intestinal friction of the ec clesiastical machinery is lahl bare to the vulgar curiosity. More sedulous to preserve the unity of ills Church than acute in canonical technicali ties. the Bishop of Illinois lout allowed his rever end brother of Ohio to get hint on the hip; and we should feel a little vain of the capacity of our UtshoD for what the lawyers call “sharp prac tice," but for the recollection that sharp practice and the three Christian graces are seldom found In the same individual. Comparing our reverend brethren with their great apostolical predecessors, we feel compelled to say that the Bishop of Illinois has shown a Petrine hastiness of temper, which bis not been to his advantage in the dispute; while the Bishop of Ohio has made hfmsell equally conspicuous for a Pauline subtlety of tactics, which lias kept him on the shady side of the canon, while doing an act of manifest injustice and usurpation. By virtue of his immocerate loyalty, the latter pre late seems to look upon himself as something more than a mere local Bishop: and. reading his arrogant and insincere letter to one officially his equal, it is difficult to decide which predominates In them, the Pope or the pettifogger.
