J* B. W. Hanna, Esq., a law partner of the
lion. D. W. Voorhces, recently made a '
speech in Louisville, Kv? upon the war |
and the questions growing out of it, which j
is remarkable for its frankness and manlu
ness. Mr. Ilanna is a Senator from the
Torre Haute district in the Legislature of t
Indiana. When a gentleman living in the |
bosom of a far northern community, and, I
moreover, a representative in a delibera- !
tive assembly of a northern State, utters
such plain truths, we need not despair of
having a full hearing in course of time, and
| of having justice done to the motives and
reasons of the south in regions where it
has been moat egregiously wronged and
We copy a few extracts from this inde
pendent oration.
Mr. Ilanna says that the issue at this
time is " between a pure and noble Caucas
sian destiny and the blighted, withered,
and ruined condition that must follow a
violation of the stern and immutable laws
of our nature." lie continues:
The President of the United States so;
understands it, and I believe lie is right.
He has taken his stand? has taken his
stand upon the Constitution, and all the
combined powers of fanaticism and hell
cannot drive him from it. {Here the wild
est NJithusiasm prevailed throughout tin
whole of the vast audience.]
This very hour, with grip of iron, he i
hangs to the lacerated and bleeding throat
of the Puritan Apollyon. [Tremendous
Viewing the means resorted to by the !
Radicals to thwart the President's policy ?
their turning out of legally-elected mem
bers from their seats? their outrages of
tiic Constitution? their measures for de.
I grading the south ? their degradation o(
Congress from its high character when
Madison, and Randolph, and Webster, and
Clay, figured in its halls, Mr. Ilanna con
, eludes :
We have been in the midst of gloom and
horrors. The last six years have been an
almost unbroken season of deptession and
despair. The face of the land has been so
covered over with the deep waters of trou
ble that there has scarcely been so much
as an Ararat where the fainting bird of
hope could rest his weary wing. But, after
all this, the Radicals are not yet satisfied.
They say they must have more blood
that there must be more destruction, more
widows, more orphans, and more heart
burnings. They cannot be sajtistied. Ag
gression is their motto, revolution their
purpose; audit is now for the people to
^ay how far they shall succeed. They can
be overthrown, ami 1 believe and trust in
God they will be. [Great applause.]
Mr. Ilanna reviews the history of the
election of Lincoln, the issues of the day ?
especially the dogma that the '-Govern
ment could not endure part slave and part
free"? and of the efforts at compromise? I
all of them contemptuously rejected by
the Republicans, lie dwells with emphasis
upon tlv prolonged efforts of Virginia to
restore harmony and save the Lnion ? upon
the obstinate refusal of the Republicans to
entertain the compromise urged upon
them by the celebrated convention gotten
up by Virginia, lie quotes very appropri- J
atclv the remarks of Senator Douglas upon
the compromise recommended by the C otn
mitteeof Thirteen, of which Mr. Davis and
Mr. Toombs, of Georgia, were members. Mr.
1 \, \i 1 #*1 <1 <1 Cli.l .
" I believe this to l?e a fair and amicable
adjustment. If you of the Republican
side are not willing t? ? accept this, nor the i
proposition of the Senator from Kentucky,
pray tell me what you are willing to do *
1 address this inquiry to the Republicans
alone for the reason that, in the Committee
of Thirteen, a few days ago, every member
from the south, including Messrs, Toombs
and Davis, expressed their willingness to j
accept the proposition of my venerable i
friend from Kentucky (Mr. Crittenden) as
a linal settlement of the controversy, if,
tendered and sustained by the Republican
members, llence the sole responsibility of
our disagreement, und the only difficulty in
the way of an amicable adjustment is with
the Republican party." [Cheers. J
Mr. Ilanna then said :
Ah, Mr. Chairman, the past is a terrible
and inexorable tribunal. Its judgments
are conclusive and final ? its records live
forever, and cannot be changed. Let the
Steve uses, the Simmers, and the Chand
lers go there and try their case by that tri
bunal if they dare. They were offered
compromise upon compromise, but they
preferred disruption and vengeance; the
hand bearing the beautiful olive branch of
peace was stretched forth to them in Chris
tian faith; but, maddened with jealousy
and thirsting fur revenge, they chose the
miseries of war and the sorrows of death.
History makes convicts of them all. They
have sacrificed more than a million of
valuable lives upon the blood J* altars of
the Moloch they have worshipped. The
manes of their victims come forth from
the tombs of more than a thousand battle
fields and testify against them; the blood
| which cries from the ground of Gettysburg
and Chickamauga, of Fredericksburg and
Murfreesboro', condemns them ; the bones
which sleep by the waters of the Missis
J sippi, and where the Rappahannock mur
murs her melancholy dirge as she sweeps
along by the sunken graves of Chanccllors
villc, rise up in judgment against them.
Wretched despoilers, who have done so
much crime in the name of liberty and
Christianity ? who have been willing t<? see
the nation scourged with sword of Maine
and hoof of lire ? who have rejoiced,
in their wicked orgies, to see her
i rivers run red and thick with fra
ternal blood? who have plotted the ruin
of more than twenty-five millions of their
own race, to raise to an unnatural eleva
tion four or five millions of negroes? who
would have sundered every tic, burned the
last house, and beggared every child in the
laud, to do under the guise of war what
thev knew they could never accomplish
inside the Constitution of our fathers !
Accursed scoffers and raving infidels, who
would have levelled Calvary itself for a
place to celebrate their impious und
j drunken feasts! Let them talk no more
; of liberty, no more ofChristianity ; for their
liberty and their Christianity will forever be
a hissing and a mockery where virtue pre
vails and truth resides ! [Great applause.]
Who would not have preferred any honora.

suming war from which we have just
emerged t Answer me Pennsylvania and
Virginia, Indiana and Mississippi, Ohio and

I of the la btttle-fttbcri and Bother*,
whoso parting with the last beardless boy
has so prematurely ripened the bloom of |
eternity upon your sunken and throbbing
temples ? which would you prefer could
you roll back the tide of time and make
the choice again ? The answer leaps from
every heart and bursts from every lip. I
would not sacrifice one such noble "spirit as
McPherson's, or one such brilliant and intre
pid soldier as Stonewall Jackson, for Thad.
dens Stevens, Charles Sumner, Henry
Wilson, Zachariah Chandler, and all the
hell brood of the vicious fanatics, bigots,
and traitors they represent to-day. [Tre
mendous and long continued cheering.]
TIIK authors, of secession and nullifica
Mr. Hanna chargcs upon New England
the authorship of both nullification and
secession. He says :
Nullification was born on the very soil of
the .same New England States whose pul
pits are now so prolific of anathemas
against secessionists, and whose men and
women daily supplicate Almighty God
fur the sweet privilege of washing their
hands in the blood of Jefferson Davis.
[Voices? " That's so, that's so," and
cheers.] The history of the country bears
me out in this statement, and no man can
successfully deny it. Let us turn over a
few pages and see how it is.
I hold in my hand the address published
by the famous convention held at Hartford,
Connecticut, on the fifteenth day of Janu.
ary, l*l.r>. Massachusetts, New Hamp
shire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and
Vermont were all represented in that
convention. Among the names of those
who represented Massachusetts 1 see the (
name of one Samuel Sumner, who most
likely ;it the same time transmitted his
name and his treason to Charles Sumner, j
the present Senator of that State. [Laugh
ter and applause.] But that was doubtless :
before the Sumner family had resolved to
" make treason odious." [Great laughter.]
If you will indulge ine, sir, I will read a.
single extract from that address:
44 Events may prove that the causes of
our calamities are deep and permanent.
They may be found to proceed not merely j
from the blindness of prejudice, pride of
opinion, violence of party spirit, or the
confusion of the times, but they may be
traced to implacable combinations of indi
viduals, or to States, to monopolize power
and office, and to trample without remorse
upon the rights and interests of commer
cial sections of the Union. Whenever it
shall appear that these causes are radical |
and permanent, a separation by equitable I
arrangement will br preferable to an alii
ance by constraint, among nominal friends j
but real enemies, inflamed by mutual ha
tred and jealousy, and inviting, by intes
tine divisions, contempt and aggressions
from abroad."
Here, sir, the right of a State to secede ?
from the Federal Union was promulgated
in New England as much as fifty ycarsago.
Mr. Hanna, following up this view,
quotes from laws of the New England ;
States nullifying the fugitive slave law,
which Mr. Webster said was as binding as
the Constitution itself upon every officer
of every State government. Mr. Ilanna
says :
A portion of the southern States, it is
true, did put aside the Constitution, and
set at naught the powers of the Federal j
Government. Now, New England says in
doing this they committed a crime which
can only be expiated by the hetaeombs of
a thousand victims, sacrificed upon a thou
sand smoking altars! How many victims
does she bring to the same altars, to he
offered up by the same priests, iu atone
ment for the* same crimes ? [Applause.] j
How many does she bring, sir* ]\c want ?
to hear n<? more lectures from that quarter
about constitutional obedience so long as
Charles Sumner lives to spread the toils of
their patent mischief; no more of turpi
tude and gibbets, while they themselves
make a mockery of civilization by their
adulations of the crested criminals they
nourish in their midst ? so long as Banks ,
is tolerated, and Butler runs at large.
* * + The Radical party is in
favor of the disfranchisement of eleven
great State*, and of the utter political ex
tinction of millions of American citizens.
The President and the entire conservative
element of the country are against it? [ap
plause] against it, sir, because such a policy
is antagonistic to the genius ol the age
against it, because it would be unjust,
vindictive, despotic, cruel, and disastrous.
[Cheers.] As I would spear the wolf that
delights to sweeten his tooth with human
blood, so I would hunt from the land the
worse than wild beast of that fanaticism
which has no pleasure above its savage j
rapacity, and no office above the offices oi
cruelty and of death. [Great applause.]
Away with it, with its hates, its persecutions,
its rancor, and its miseries ? away with it
forever, sir. Then a new dayspring from
on high shall visit us? then the lost days of
our prosperity shall be restored then the
windows of Heaven shall once more be
opened, and the long exiled minister of
peace, shedding from his white wings the
ambrosial dews o! hope and joy upon out
famished and fruitless earth, shall descend
to us again and dwell with us in the midst
of increased confidence and happiness.
I speak fur the people of the great north
west. The people, sir, are humane and
just. This cry of terror does not proceed
from them. They want peace and resto
ration. [Cheers.] They are weary of the
burdens and the taxes of a war brought on !
by fanaticism, and which they would have
prevented by sound reason and timely
conciliation ; they are weary of the vast
expenditure of public moneys for the sup- 1
port of worthless negro troops in States ,
where they are not wanted, not needed,
and where honest labor invites them back
to the rich fields which they have deserted ;
they are weary of the prodigality, the im- |
positions, the extortions, and the usurpa
tions of the Freedmen's Bureau, together j
with all the d??gs, wolves, and jackals that
ever follow upon its scent for prey. [Tre
mendous applause.] They are sick and
weary with the whole of it. They intend
to put a stop to it. [Renewed applause.)
They have the power to do it, and they
will do it.
Conservative principles have success
fully conducted the affairs of this Govern
ment for more than seventy years. I think
they can be trusted again. Once restored j
to their ancient power, and we will again i
have peace, prosperity, and concord. \\"c
will then cut down all the gibbets, burst
open the prison doors, unfetter the cap- j
tives, and call home the exiles. Then the
people shall once more wake the slumber
ing harps of joy ; then shall they swell
again the anthems of their Te Dnmi lau- '
damus, and they shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes, and there shall be no more
! death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither
| shall there be any more pain ; for the for
mer things shall have passed away. (Long
eontiued applause. J

Persoxai. Difficulty Between* Mr. II. '
Rives Pollard and Mr. Samuel James.? I
At about 7 o'clock on yesterday evening, j
Mr. Samuel James, the brother of the
wife of Mr. E. A. Pollard, went to the J
private rooms of Mr. II. Hives Pollard, on j
Main street, between Seventh and Eighth
streets. The relations between Mr. Pol- j
lard and the family of his brother's wife j
had always been of a friendly character, ;
and Mr. James was at once admitted. At
the time of his entrance, Mr. Pollard, who
had been unwell and was in an enfeebled ,
condition, was lying upon a lounge. After
some preliminary conversation, Mr. James
asked where was Mr. E. A. Pollard. To j
this Mr. Pollard replied that he was in New
York. Mr. J. then said that he had thought
that Mr. E. A. Pollard was in New York, :
but t hut he had avoided and dodged hity.
Mr. Pollard immediately asked whether j
Mr. James intended to charge his brother
with cowardice, saying that if he did so he
would make it a personal matter, as the j
whole imputation would be a dowuright <
lie. lie states that he then offered to have i
Mr. E. A. Pollard in Richmond in thirty,
six hours to meet Mr. James, and said |
that ho would write to his brother inline- ?
diately. Mr. James appears to assent to
this, and the letter was commenced. Before,
however, the first sentence had been com
pleted, Mr. Pollard again said that if he
(James) intended to impute any cowardice
to his brother, he would brand him as a
poltroon and coward, and would make it a
personal matter on the spot. As he said
this, he arose from his seat, and Mr. Jatnes,
who is a very powerful and athletic man,
immediately struck at him. A close light
then ensued. Mr. James grappled with
Mr. Pollard, and threw him upon the
lounge, where they lay struggling for some
time. At last both parties rose to their feet,
Pollard seized the tongs while Mr. James
took a chair as his weapon, and Mr. Pollard
was badly choked and beaten. Neither
party appears to have had any arms, ami j
they both tussled and tumbled without ar
riving at anv definite result. Soon some i
of Mr. Pollard's friends came in and
separated the parties, Mr. James hav- j
ing in the course of the struggle |
been forced from the room out on to the i
stair-case. Mr. James then went down stairs,
Mr. Pollard defying him as lie did so and
saving that he would meet him f,n the street
in a few minutes. Mr. Pollard then went j
down town, armed himself with a double
barrelled gun and pistol, and went to seek ,
Mr. James. In his progress up the street ;
with his weapons, he was followed by a i
crowd of negroes, big and little, old and
young, who seemed to think the whole pro
ceeding a jollv piece ol tun. It was ru
mored^ that Mr. James had gone to Ash
land, and Mr. Pollard determined at once
to publish his version of the affair, which |
is substantially the same as that given ,
above. In his card, Mr. Pollard narrates ;
the whole affair, and in conclusion posts
Mr. James as a "liar, poltroon, and
coward." , !
Since writing the foregoing, which is in
substance the statement made by Mr. Pol
lard himself, we have seen Mr. James, who '
gives an entirely different version of some
portions of the affair.
Mr. James states that when Mr. E. A.
Pollard was captured on a blockade-run
ner in 1863, he and his father o tiered him
everv pecuniary assistance that lie might
need". He also states that he lent money
to both E. A. and II. R. Pollard alter the
desertion of Mrs. E. A. Pollard by her hus
band, which tact was at the time of lending
the money unknown to Mr. James. 1
lie states that when he asked Mr. II. R. :
Pollard in his rooms where was Mr. E. A.
Pollard, and was told that lie was in New
York, he replied that he had not been able
to find him there. Mr. Pollard then asked
whether this was intended as an imputa
tion of cowardice upon the character of
his brother. Mr. James states that he was
perfectly cool, and did not wish to have a
difficulty. Mr. Pollard then thrust his fist
in his face, and he took hold of Mr. Pol.
lard and forced him into a chair. A Mr.
Payne, who was in the room all the time,
then seized Mr. James by the arm, and a
on*t<ant niwl nnntlinr tiiflTl also took hold of
Mr. James states that while he was tints
held he was struck on the head by Mr.
Pollard with the tongs, and his head se
verely cut. He was hustled out of the
room, and, in a confused condition, caused
by the blow which he had received, went
downstairs, lie states also that, in the
course of the struggle, Mr. Pollard called
repeatedly for his knife and pistol, and
that as he went out a basin and a variety
of other articles were thrown alter him.
Mr. James's arms and hands were badly
bruised in warding off the blows with the
tongs; which latter he is carrying with
him as a trophy of the occasion. This is
the statement of Mr. James as we under
stood it".
At this hour it is impossible to give any
fulh-r particulars than are contained in the
foregoing, and if any injustice has been
done to either party concerned, it will of
course bb corrected.
Whatever may be the result of the diffi
culty, it is still earnestly to be hoped that
it will not end in another shooting affray
upon the streets. As long as the south is
constituted as it now is, personal quarrels,
admitting of no amicable adjustment, will
arise, but they should not in any case be
allowed to be the cause of danger and
peril to the lives of disinterested parties.
There havd been too many street tights
already in this city, and there are many
other places which will be found tuore
quiet, more safe, and more convenient
upon any belligerent occasions.
Collision Between a White Man* and
a Negro. ? A spring- wagon driven by a
white man and a dray driven by a negro
came into collision on yesterday evening
on Main street, near the Old Market. The
wagon was injured, and its driver wanted
to have the negro arrested. A policeman
came up, but informed the complainant
that he could make no arrest without a
warrant, unless the white man or the negro
had a broken head or broken nose.

had some strong circumstantial ^idcnce,
such as "a severe wound or bloody i nose.
The plain and practical result of this order
will be to cause a number of offenders to g
scot free and unpunished. Suppose, -
1 ,i , . . f u knocked down and
stance that a citizen is KIWCK;U" ?_Pttnn
sends for a policeman to arrest the p ?rs
kho assaults him. The policeman ar
rives, but his hands are tied, and, accord
ing to Mayor Mayo, no arrest can be made
1 unless the citizen is so unfortunate as t
I have a "deep wound or a bloody nose.
' Let a man break into your house, or steal
vour horse, or palm off upon you a bund le
I of counterfeit notes, and make his
escape, although identified; and if >ou
meet that man upon the street and
recognize him, you cannot have him
arrested unless the identical policeman
you call on has witnessed the offence,
or unless the accused has the horse
or the counterfeit money in his hand ,
" unless one or the other of the par.
tios__it does not seem to matter which
hasthe aforesaid "sum owned or bloody
nose." Such orders as these are worse
than nonsense! In all the large cities of
this country and of Europe the police hay;
a discriminating, power, and make arrests
whenever in their opinion there is good
and sufficient cause. The men have their
professional standing at heart, and it sel
dom occurs that an arrest is maliciously or
improperly made. This is the plan that
should be adopted in this city; for if no
policeman is allowed to make an arrest un
less he lias the warrant in his pocket, or
saw the offence committed, the efficiency
of the police in protecting our lives and
properties must, in spite ot all their el
lbrts, soon be at an end. 4
In ncarlv every city of any size but Rich
mond the evidence of a policeman is, other
things being equal, always taken m prefer
ence to that of any one other person. It
is considered that he is the guardian of the
community, and the magistrates or ma} ors
support arid sustain him in all that he d >
in the legal execution of his duty. A
verv different state of things exists in this
city. No matter what his energy or tide
lit v, the policeman is frequent y snubbed
and slighted by the Mayor, and ? J ^
his evidence is considered of but little
value, if it is not disregarded altogt th?r.
lie mav spend days and weeks in working
up a case, only to have the melancholy
pleasure of finding the offender acquitted.
No matter what lie may do, no matter
what he may say, he receives no encou.
raeemcnt or support trom the Major, who
has, a officio, the control ot the city po.
K These facts cannot well come to the
public ear through private channels, and
it is but an act of justice to the police
force that the difficulties under which
the v labor should be known and appre
ciated. Every power that is granted to
anv policeman in any city in the north,
ma'v be safeiy given to the Richmond
nolice. The men who compose the torcc
are of no common order. They are not
the dregs of the population. The} are
educated, intelligent, fait hi ill men, , who
have the instincts and feelings ot gentle
men, and together form a police force ot
which Richmond has cause to be proud.
But these men, who have reduced t
citv from a condition ol riot aud dis
order to one of unexampled peace
and quiet, cannot continue to work
with the old enthusiasm if the Majcr
persists in his present polie\. He nia>
think that a word of praise or cn(j?"r^;
ment is of but little value, and tins ma>
possibly be true; but Major Claiborne and
his officers and men require to kuow that
l ev are supported by the Mayor, and that
? all their actions they have his hrm sup
port and cordial cooperation. Surel}
Mavor Mavo will now think ot the "npor
tance of the interests at stake. At t
timo of his election it was rum red that he
was opposed to the present police, and his
conduct seems to give some color to the
idea. Let him, then, change his
and he may be assured that, if he ?
hand in hand with our police, ? t Mil be bit

S ltd f.v Dkath of Dr. Robert Baylor
Lyxk. ? We regret to announce the sudden |
and unexpected death of Dr. K. B. Lyne, of
this city, which took place on yesterday
morning at his residence on Church Hill. :
Dr. Lyne was sitting on the porch, in appa
rently good health, when lie fell from his j
chair to the ground, and in a short time <
breathed his last.
Dr. Lyne was born in King and Queen
county, Va., on December 27th, 1804, ami
was therefore in the sixty-second year of
his age. Early in life, he mairied in King
William county, and commenced the prac
tice of his profession near the court-house of
that county. In 1S4.">, becoming wearied
of the arduous labors imposed upon him
by his extensive and rapidly increasing
practice, he removed to this city, entering
into a mercantile business on Main street,
near the Old Market, lie soon found, how
l ever, that the manner of life did not suit
his habits.and tastes, and purchased alarm
in Henrico from the late lion. Judge John
| C. Clopton. In llenrico, Dr. Lyne lived
and practiced his profession for about ten
years, during which time he also faithfully
' discharged the duties of justice of the
' peace.
About 1855 Dr. Lyne again removed to
Richmond, and entered into an agency bu
? sincsswith E.A.J. Clopton, Esq., which was
carried on until the commencement of the
1 war. After the evacuation in the
same business was recommenced, ami Dr.
Lyne continued in it until his death.
One of the most prominent traits in Dr.
i Lyne's character was his devotion to his
wife and children, and the quiet pleasures
of home. Even after he was seized with
the terrible attack which caused his death,
I ho begged his son, who had been sick for
, several days, but was endeavoring to help
. him, to return immediately to his room, tell
i ing him that he " wanted him to get well
j soon."
Dr. Lyne w5s one of the old school of
courteous, high-minded, and intelligent
Virginia gentlemen, and in his life has set
a bright example for our guidance and imi
tation. He embraced the Christian reli
I gion while still young, and up to the time
of his death was a consistent and promi
j nent member of the Disciples' Church.
