SATURDAY JULY 7, 1866.
Shall Underwood Try Mr. Davis?
Of all the men that have ever lived upon
Um? face of the earth, the Radical* in the
present Congress seem to l?c the most un
scrupulous in the prosecution of their
purposes. It has for some time heon ap
parent that Chief Justice Ciiask is as anx
ious to avoid sitting upou the trial of Mr.
Davis as Uxdkkwood is to engage in flint
agreeable occupation. After endeavoring
in every imaginable way to shirk his duty,
and finding that the President is deter
mined that he shall perform it, Mr. Ciiask
has had the good fortune to secure the
assistance of his party friends in Congress.
We learn tVom the New York Herald
that the House Judiciary Committee have
decided by a vote of five to four to re|>ort
a bill at the earliest practicable moment
for the reorganization of tho courts of the
United States. The first section pro
vides for the uladition of the Circuit Courts
of the United States on September 1,18GG,
and gives to the District Courts and Dis
trict Judges original jurisdiction of all
actions at law and suits iu equity com
menced on or after that date to the same
extent in all respects as now possessed by
the Circuit Courts and the Circuit Judges
lor said districts rcs|>ectively. The second
section provides for the removal of nil ac
tions and prosecutions /rum the Circuit to the
District Courts. In other words, tho second
section provides that the trial of Mr.Davis
may take place before Jndgc Underwood
sitting alone ! As the law now stands, he
cannot be tried in the absence of the Chief
Justice, tho District Court not having juris
diction in treason cases. We shall await
further developments in tho matter with
much iuterest.
" Murder as a Political Art."
L'nder this caption the Cincinnati 0*/
? ette, a Radical sheet, publishes a long arti
?:!? designed to show that IIakkison, Tay
i.ok, and Lincoln, were all murdered at
the instigation of the i>oliticians of the
South, and that the same class made an
unsuccessful attempt upon the life of Mr.
lifCHANAX. We suppose '.here are old
grannies in Cincinnati who will believe this
story, and hold up their hands i? holy hor
ror at the supposed w ickedness of our peo- ;
pic. But that any man having three grains j
of common sense should believe it, is in. ;
credible. The editor of the (jhizelte is'
cither a knave or a fanatical fool. Either j
lie gives currency to this base slander for I
political purposes, well knowing it to be j
false in every particular, or else he is j
totally unlit for the position he holds. No
one in the South will argue such a ques
tion. We feci nothing but pity for the
folly which could credit such stories, and
nothing but contempt tor the vile slander
ers who'originnte them.
The War in Europe-The Situation in
Germany.
The first movements liuvc now been made
in the war between Austria and her Germa
nic allies on the one side, and Prussia and
Italy on the other; and hostilities may be
said to have actually commenced.
When the Prussian forces entered IIol- 1
?toin, compelling the Austriuns to retreat
before them, they consolidated Prussian
power in the north. The Elbe Duchies
were tiruilv bound to Austria ; Hamburg,
Lubcck, and Bremen were isolated from
;i?y support of the confederation ; and the
two Mccklcnburgs were left 110 alternative
but a close alliance or an actual incorpo
ration with Prussia.
In the west and south Prussia has acted
with equal vigor, and with as great appa
rent success. As soon as the Diet voted
the mobilization of the Federal army,
Prussia made known her determination to
consider all the States that voteiPin favor
? >f that projiosition as her enemies unless
tlu y would, without delay, declare a strict J1
neutrality and refuse to arm. None of1
the Powers acceded to this peremptory J
demand, and ou the lGth ultimo the Prus- j,
sian army entered llanovcr, Hesse, and!]
Saxony. This was a most important and |
politic step on the part of Prussia. Be- j1
t ween the eastern section of Prussia und
Westphalia and the Rhenish provinces, her 11
western dependencies, lie the kingdom of j|
Hanover and Electoral and Ducal llessc,
which stretch north and southfrom the North
sea to near Frunkfort-ou-the-Mainu. The
adhesion of these Powers to the Diet broke
the continuity of the Prussian line, isolated
her possessions on the Rhine, exposed her
to attack from the armies of the Confede
ration on the lower Elbe, aud threatened
to cut her off from Holstciti, and tints nul
lify all the benefits she bad obtained from
its occupation. Prussia moved without J
giving the Diet time for resistance, and as t
a result of two days' campaign, lias sole j
possession and control of Northern Ger
many front the Belgian to the Russian
frontier, presenting un unbroken line to
her adversaries as tar soutli as her armies J
have advanced.
While, then, the occupation of Hanover
and the llosscs was essentially defensive
in us character, the march on Dresden,*|
the other great Prussian advance, is prin
cipally offensive. It is defensive so far as
it prevents the Austrians from holding
I besdeu and Leipsic, and thence threaten
ing Magdeburg and Berlin on the one side,
aud Breslauaud Posen on the other; but it
was doubtless chiefly intended to give a
base from which to operate against the
Austrian line from Karlsbad to Pardubitz,
in Bohemia. The Austrian cantonments
are said to extend along the Bobemiunaud
Kilesiau frontier, reaching up to Cracow, on
the southern frontier of Poland, the left.:
wing of General Bknldkk's army resting j
upon the Elbe. Should ho be defeated iu !
that posiliou, his left might be driveu iu !
upon his ccutrc and right, and the whole !
shattered army be forced back into Mora
\ ia and Austrian Silesia, breaking his com. |
luuiiicatton with Bavaria, aud compelling \
m him to leave an oi*n road into tho heart
f ?>f Austria. A Prussian diversion in Silesia
or Austrian Poland might also l?c at
tempted, to prevent reinforcements being
-cut to the relief of Bknkdkk'h left, in Bo
hemia.
A > 2
T.V* advantages of the Austrian position
must not, however, be overlooked. From
Cohlont/, on tho Rhine, through Saxony
and Silesia to Oderbcig, the Prussian line
extends across the whole of Germany.
The line would be an admirable one if it
< ou Id be maintained, hut ft is indubitably
too long lor either offensive or defensive
purposes. A powerful Federal army arottnd
Frankfort already threalesn the frrusaian
right, and the main Austrian army, massed
in a comparatively amall area, can be rea
dily directed en md/Utt against any portion
of the extended Prussian line. The Prus
sians cannot well advance unless they
move their whole line, fbr they dare not
mwwer their flanks or give their enemies
an opportunity, by a rapid flank movement,
of endangering their communications and
cutting them off fVom their supplies. A
defeat to the Prussians, on their present
line, would in all probability be decisive,
as they would not be able to collect to
gether a sufficient force to hold the victors
in check, while of Austria it must be re
mcmbered that her history proves that al
though she may be defeated again and
again, she never ceases to offer a stubborn
and determined resistance. In one respect
the policy of the Austrian commander is
admirable. His movements and intentions
are wrapt in entire secrecy, and his plans
will only be known when they are carried
into operation.
The arrival of the next steamer will
doubtless bring particulars of new move
ments, and perhaps of a general engage
ment ; and until then we can hut speculate
upon contingencies, and^liope that which
ever Power is in the right may for once
he successful in war.
A Word wem. pit in.?In the Senate,
Thursday, while the bill for reanncxing
Alexandria to the District of Columbia
was under consideration, Mr. Davis, of
Kentucky, made a little s{>eech. lie said
he was convinced that the State of West
Virginia had no legal or constitutional
existence, hut as he thought the matter
was one entirely for the courts, he should
not vote to repeal the act admitting it us
a State. Whereupon the bill was passed j
ovei for that day. This was a hard hit at j
Senator Wade, who had made an argu-!
nient to prove that the retrocession of Al- j
exandria to Virginia was an unconstitu- j
tional proceeding, hut whose conscientious
scruples had never been aroused by the
palpably unconstitutional act recognizing j
West Virginia as a State.
The First Convention.?The Winches- j
tcr papers contain a call for a convention, j
to be held in the Alexandria district on j
the 27tli of July, to appoint delegates to |
the Philadelphia Convention.
The Petersburg papers arc among the
most highly valued on our list of ex
changes when tlicy reach us in time.
A word, &c.
The l*re?M on the National 1'onven- j
tlon.
Fmni thy Sew York Xow?, July 5.
The National Uxiox Convention.'? i
We publish in another column the address |
of the Democratic members of Gongress j
" to the people of the United States," en-1
dorsing the call for the assembling of a j
National Convention at Philadelphia on the i
11th of August. The style and temper of ;
this address are admirable. It ignores the j
divisions which have heretofore existed j
amongst thoso who are opposed to the dc-;
structive principles and measures of the
Radicals, and prepares the way for the ;
earnest and hearty cooperation of all those j
who desire the perpetuation of the Union
and the well-being of the States and of the j
people of this great country. This is in I
the true Democratic spirit, and as such we |
accept it, and give our voice to the pro.
posed movement.
From the Now York World, July 5.
It is clear, then-fore, despite the repre
sentations of the Times*, that this is a move
ment which all conservative men may
safely encourage. In the countenance
given it by the signers of the Democratic
Address we have a guarantee of its ho
nesty and good faith?a needed assurance '
that it is not the trick of crafty Repuhli- !
cans to rejuvenate the Republican party :
and promote its perpetuity. In no view, j
therefore, can its success be a detriment i
to the Union cause. If, as seems probable, :
it shall win sufticicnt popular favor to
render it a valuable ally, the Democratic
party will cordially greet it as a sister
organization, and he ready to confer with
t, in a liberal spirit, as to the best means
?f restoring the Union?the great para,
nount object common to both.
From Forru-y's Chronicle, Juiy 6.
The coalition will not embrace the loy
distsof the South. They are to become
uiriahs and outcasts under the President's
>olicy, while the rebels, whose first choice
or President* would be Robert E. Lee,
heir second Jefferson Davis, and their
hird Andrew Johnson, arc to he accepted
?y the "National Union Convention " coa
ition as the true representatives of the
south. Richmond or Charleston would be
i much better place to hold a Johnson con
rcntion than Philadelphia.
Another Bureau Order.
General Howard is out in another order. !
}f course he has heard of more 44 out-:
?ages" upon his colored brethren?this
time in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Geor
gia, and 44 other late slave States." AVhy
not name all of them ? lie says:
44 This circular [in regard to frcedmen's !
courts, we sup)K>sc,] lias never been coun
termanded or modified, except with regard
to the courts where the military tribunals
have been suspended, or replaced by the
civil ami local courts in accordance with
specific orders. And even in districts
where this change has taken place, the
oflicer or agent must still be the friend of
l lie l'rccdmeu or refugee, to aid him in the
prosecution of bis case."
But not of any white man. That would
he against orders.
State Confiscation Laws in West
'iKuixiA.?Judge Hall held a special term
f the Circuit Court of Morgan county on
lie dd of July to dispose of a large num.
er of confiscation cases presented under
lie State laws of the J6th of November, ?
SUJ. The law involved in tlice cases had
ecu elaborately argued at the May term
ist by lion. Benjamin Stanton, of Ohio,'
?r the State, and by the Hon. Charles J.]
aulkner on liehalf of the defendants. Mr. ,
aulkncr took the ground that the State
iw was unconstitutional in assuming to
uuish offences solely coguizable in the i
ourts of the United States, and besides, j
tuit the act was a war measure, incapable, i
y its own provisions, of being carried into
xecution in a period of peace. A consent j
rdcr was entered, by which the cases j
I'ere dismissed at the costs of the defend. I
nts.

E. A. PoLi.ARD, No. ?5? Broadway.
In a private letter, received last evening, Mr. E.
A. Pollard further writes:
" As to avoiding any member of the James fami
ly, 1 have only to say that nenrly kioiit mokths
ago, November PHh, 1885, I wrote as follows, from
the city of New York, lo James :
#*##?? I do not wish to avoid any cons?
quences or to escape any responsibility; and with
this view I shall remain in Baltimore (at the
house of Br. , corner of and streets) a
sufficient number of days to learn and meet the
issue, whatever it may be.
" No one <>f the James family responded t<? the
invitation of an interview. In the eight months
subsequent, I have been in N?*w York, Norfolk,
Petersburg, and Klrhrnond, without any of the
Jameses having applied for an interview, by per
son or by letter. As to Fam James's cowardly
fancy that I could not be found In New York, it is
too ridiculous to notice. You can send him my ad
dress and telegrams, which are at liis service. It
would be Useles- for me to come to Richmond,
where the police are on the alert for demonstra
tions. It could only make a harmless affair for
James, and a bloodless scandal for myself. This
explanation I shall consider for the present suf
ficient to give the lie, blunt and direct, to his va
pours.''
With this I leave the public to judge who is

The quotation from the letter of E. A. Pollard to
" James " (as above) was written to me, of which
the following is a copy :
Nkw York, November 13, l?o.?.
William Joint*, K*ff ?, (\>lln1or oj Inltrnal Re
venue, Richmond, I:
Sir,?I owe you a debt of candor. I have
triei* to do my duty to iny wife; but I have been
overi?owerc(l by my feelings for Mr-. ?- , which
being no longer able to suppress, disguise, or di
miulsh, I am bouud to acknowledge.
Recollect that I have done her, too, a deep
wrong, and stood between a reconciliation ol ber
with her husband and children; and she has no
protector, no family, no friends. Sir, I can no
longer control the feelings which torture my
heart, and, terrible a> is the pain of seeking a di
vorce from my wife, it is best for her honor and
happiness that tlie slep on her pan slnmld be
taken. I know you wilt break the news to her as
kindly as possible ; the pain she may suffer is ter
rible agony to me?but better this than the unliap
piness of a forced and ill-*Uirre.l union.
I am willing that ail the penalty and shame of
the step be concentrated on me. I do not wish to
lake it under any circumstances of concealment,
or to avoid any consequences, or to escape any
responsibility; and with tills view I shall remain
in Baltimore (at the house of Dr. Moore, corner
of Hill and Hanover streets,) a sufficient number

If Pollard construes the quotation from the above
letter as a challenge to "James," as seems to he
indicated, 1, to whom that letter was addressed,
aui the person challenged, and not my son Samuel

This is an explanation, if one is necessary,
"why" no one of the "James" tamily ever
responded to the invitation of an interview ; of

CARD OF THANKS.?Having nearly re
vered from my late injuries received upon the
chiuond and Danville railroad, 1 avail myself of
e earliest opportunity, and have selected this
fdiuin, of returning my heartfelt thanks to the
microtis friends who so cheerfully, generously,
id nobly rendered mo assistance during my af
ctlon. To the superintendent and officers of the
ad who supplied me, not only with all the ar
?les necessary for my comfort, but all the luxu
js which the market afforded. To Doctors Ball,
?wniau, Hancock, Winston, Archer, and Pnl
iin, who were all attention. To the citizens
omul Coalfield (especially Messrs. Edward Cun
fe, Robert Marks, Barnes, and General R. L.
alker,) who did not stop to inquire who or what
vas, bu* tine promptly and cheerfully forward
relieve the sufferings of a fellow-being. To
rs. Ball, Archer, Scott, Barnes, Taylor, and
uuimall; Misses Ball, Powers, Porter, Cunliffe,
iiicock, Bruuimall, and Hughes, who cheered
a by their presence and lavished upon me the
ndest and most constant attention, and who I feel
?re ministering angels to me under a kind
?ovideiice in my affliction.
1 feel at Kreat loss for words to express the gratt
de ol mv heart. In (act, words are inadequate ;
it 1 can assure you 1 sincerely appreciate the
udness ; and while I may look upon it as one of
e saddest ereuts of my life, the recollection of
e kind friends who so nobly aided iuo will al
leys be associated with the event, and will in a
eat measure alleviate the sadness.

Wf THE MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE
COMPANY OP NEW YORK ASSET8, OVER
*lrt,ooo.ooo.?To meet the choice of each prevent or
future members a* tuay prefer to hare the amount
insured paid in instalments to their wldown or
bcim rather than in one turn, this Company Is
prepared to invert in its policies a clause agreeing
that in lien of the payment of tho policy and pro
fits in one nam, an equitable amount, to be deter*
mined by the Company, may be paid annually or
semi-annually for any specified number of years
(?.ay from fire to twenty-lire years).
Example.?Suppose a policy of ten thousand dol
lars, with additions amounting t< fire thousand
dollars more, should become payable by reason of
the death of the person insured, the Company, in
lieu of the payment of fifteen thousand dollars in
one sum, would ba able togire (assuming interest
as realized In the past) an annuity for t>*n years of
orer two thousand dollars per annum, or for
twenty years an annuity of orer one thousand
three hundced dollars per annum.
This form of annuity will remove the anxiety
which may exist in the minds of some policy-hold
ers lest the future provision they have made for
their families should be ineffectual or transitory
in its duration, either through unsafe investments,
unwise expenditure, or other uncertainties inci
dental to contingent trusts.
It is not only free from the ordinary dangers of
investment, but its punctual and full pavraent is
secured by the LARGE AND SOLID CASH RE
SOURCES and good faith <>f tills institution, which
thus, to a certain extent, becomes the GUARDIAN
or TRUSTEE of the survivors. Hence the provi
sion may he considered, humanly speaking, be
yond any adverse contingency.
Ail such deferred payments or annuities will
share equitably in the profits or dividends of the
Company.
This Company also issues SURVIVORSHIP AN
NUITIES, which provide for survivors during the
whole period of life, and DEFERRED ANNUI
TIES, by which Individuals may provide for them
selves in advanced age.
