SATURDAY AUGUST 25, 1866. Letter from John X. Bolts to ? The following letter from Mr. Botts neo<l? no comment, lie can find no fault with Uie platform, but be won't act with its supporters. It seems to be a private note. It was addressed to A. J. Stofer, ot the Culpeper Observer : Sin da y Moknixo, August 19,1366. Dear Stofer,?Comedown and eat your dinner with me. I am spoiling to hear some seccsh talk about your I hiladclphia Convention and platform; how the whole South, like whipped spaniel., ivcro made to take back seats, xeith mouths elated; not allowed fo speak a word; to oaf dt\rtjJ0 tialloic in the mire?44 to thank God that the Divine institution was destroyed;" "that the Union was more sacred than before the rebellion44 that there was no right in any State, or combination of States, to secedethat the rebel debt must be re. pudiated, and the national debt bo paid; ?? that tho Federal soldiers and sailors must be taken care of and rewarded for whipping tho Southand all this said and done, this humiliating self.stultilication submitted to, for a little " bread and but tor"?a mere crumb from the public crib. Oh, I ailVaahamcd of this southern mean ness ! 1 always gave your party credit for boldness and determination, though wholly destitute of either principle or honesty? but, alas, for poor, fallen human nature ! what will not "bread ami butter " do with hungry man ? I am glad of course to have you all on my side, to come to my platform, but it does not increase my respect for my nnr allies. Henceforward we stand on the samo platform of principles, though I can not consent to act in cooperation with them at the polls?not knowing how soon I may be betrayed for a larger supply of 41 bread and bulUr " ofl'ercd from some ether quarter; and the county of Culj>eper, too, yonr own immediate representative, select ed as a committeeman to wait upon the Pre sident for congratulation on tho absolute surrender, tho caving in, the giving vp?the cry of 44 enough," 44enough," from the whole "unterrifled" democracy of the i South. This last performance must have been intended as a personal compliment to me, as a citizen of Culpeper; I can put I no other interpretation uj?on it. I thank j the gentlemen for their kind coo-1 sideration; in return for which, 1 give way to Mr. Barbour; I take him in the futuro as my leader as fong as he J sticks to the track. Come down and con gratulate me on the great triumph of my j principles. The surrender of Lee ami | Johnston to Grant and Sherman (who could not help themselves) was as nothing in comparison with this voluntary, univer sal unanimous surrender of the Seeesli Democracy. Thanks to 44 Dooiittle !" he is "i)o Little" no longer! He has done morr than the armies of the United States were able to accomplish. What is to be come of the poor Union men tirst fright ened into this trouble and then betrayed ? We can't take than back; they never can be trusted again. It you come, bring with you some late Richmond papers; it not, send them by the bearer. I want to see how they take their humiliation. Yours fraternally hereafter, .1. M. Botts. Special dispatch to the Public Ledger. The l*rlMOii I.ifc of llavl<t. Richmond, August 22.?A near friend of Jefferson Davis coufirms the report current j some time since that lie objected to seve-1 ral of the passages in the recent work enti tled his Prison Life. lie, however, did not say that the pasfj sages were absolute falsehoods, but simply that they were highly colored, and in numerous instances objectionable, because given to his physician as confidential or merely social utterances. R. From the Famville Jourral. While there are features in these reso lutions to which southern men may well object, yet, taken as a whole, they areas un exceptionable as we bad any l ight to ex pect. They concede to the southern States the main points claimed by them?repre sentation in the National Legislature and the right to control the elective franchise for themselves; and conceding this much, we can well afford to overlook minor points of objection, and to give what aid wo can to the efforts of those who, adopting these resolutions as their political creed, are patriotically striving to restore the integrity 4 !><k IVtfAMnmnnt o vwl ? A P4> rwtnltllfill t llA of the Government and to reestablish the supremacy of the Constitution. From the Norfolk Virginian. Speaking of the principles laid down by the late National Convention, and the spi rit of the southern press in connection therewith, the Wilmington Dispatch says : "Other papers, such as the Richmond Dispatch, Goldsboro' Neves, Newborn Com mercial, and Norfolk Virginian, are willing to swallow the bitter pill without making even ono wry face." We have no earthly objection to being placed in the same catalogue with cither of the excellent journals mentioned in the same unjust couucction with ourselves ; but do insist most strenuously, that in fear less defence of the rights of the South we are in no whit behind any paper published in the limits of the late Confederacy. Never mind wry faces. We approve un qualifiedly of neither the resolutions^ nor the address adopted by the Convention ; but its aim was our salvation, and wc shall aeiae the rope thrown out without commit ting ourselves to any heresies of either P?rty. > From tlio New York Tribune, August tt. Philosopher Greeley ou Modern Pro* pbets. All enthusiastic and sincere men have a passion for prediction. Thus an es teemed correspondent writing to us the other day upon the subject oLcapital pun. ishment ventures to prophecy the certain abolition of the death-peualty. The Inqui sition has been swept out of existence; du elling has been prohibited; public hangings have been abolished?" next in course will follow capital punishment itself, the last of this barbarous, grim, and impious train." We are reminded by this of a-prediction made by a philanthropic English nobleman, Lord Nugent, who said, A. D. 1846; " The gibbet lias not fifteen years' life in it. If, in 18ti0, fifteen years hence, there shall be v*th!*PlVV*hmeilt existing, if we shall ?!? i 118 wor^ together, reproach me with being the falsest prophet, the veriest fool that ever presumed to talk of the ad vancing spirit of the times." To this, Cham. s Edinburgh Journal added: " We cor dially agree with Lord Nugent, aud under, take a share in the hazards to which lie here exposes himself." Nearly six years 1 *iQce tbe exP?ration of the pe riod fixed upon, and they hung a man only tbe other day In England. Unfortunately, groat reforms can never bo accomplisbod by predicting them. The destb.pennlty was* in such bad odor in Massachusetts twenty years ago that it was almost impossible to hang anybody ; uow they perform the work there with but little Kent from a few individuals. Tbe gal i, after the execution of Professor Web ster, experienced the benefit of a reaction, and the hanging has been prettv steady ever since. It is a matter in which very few people take any interest, because no body expects to be bung. ?

ICditor New York Tribune: In your issue of the 18th instant you have n dispatch from New Orleans, upon which you commented editorially, stating substantially that 44 King, of the New Orleans Times, hns written to his friends in New Orleans that he was present when General Sheridan's dispatches were re ceived by the President, and that they were thrown under his table." I left Washington before General Sheri dan was known to have returned to New Orleans, and read his dispatch to General Grant in the country many hundreds of miles from the capital. The President did not receive a dispatch from General Sheridan while I was in Washington, that 1 am aware of ; and I made no statement in any manner of the character attributed to me. 1 did not write to any person in New Orleans on any*subject from the time of my leaving home until the night of the 17th, the day the libellous dispatch is dated in New Orleans; and I will pay five thousand dollars in gold upon the pro duction of any letter or dispatch written or sent by me containing in any shape the statement said to have been made by me. You will please do me the justice to publish this correspondence. [Signed] W. II. C. Kino, Editor New Orleans Times. IIoRitiBf.K Suicide?A Man Hides his Head after Cutting it off.?Our coroner yesterday morning held an inquest on the body?we insist on this word?on the body?of an unknown man found dead in a room of a house on a street of a suburb of this city. The unfortunate victim had, a few days ago, hired a suit of rooms, and not having been seen since lie entered them, the in telligent frcedwoman who plays landlady over the premises, suspecting something wrong, sent for the police, when, the door being forced open, a horrible spectacle was discovered. The headless body of the man was lying in state on his own bed! A suspicion of murder at once arose in the minds of the spectators, and the coroner | was at once sent for, who, notwithstanding the appearances, at once expressed his opinion that the death was not the result of a murder?but of suicide ! and while looking over the body, a letter was found in the hands of the victim fully justifying the coroner's provisions. The letter ran thus: " J have put an end to my own life?1 was tired of existence in this ungrateful land?and I left it of my own free will. There is money in my drawer sufficient to pay my funeral expenses. As to my name, try not to discover it. To prevent indica tions, ] have hidden my own head wheiryou never willjind it." This whole transaction is thus destined to remain shrouded in eternal mystery !? Mobile Times, Ath. MySTERIOCS DlSAIM'EAKAXCK?SlTPOSED Cask ok Suicide.?Yesterday Mrs. Hen rietta Tucker left lier home, and the last seen other by any of her friendsor acquaint ances was about 1 o'clock, when she was walking up Seventh street. Nothing was thought of Iter leaving her home until seve ral hours afterwards; but about sundown n note was found on the mantel, which was directed to her niccf, who lives with her, in which she said : 14 For years past I have been tried in the furnace of affliction, and believe that tin re is no rest for Me on this earth, but in my grave beside my husband, and I am determined to seek it. I com mend my two little girls to your care." And she further directs the niece to invest the money coming to the daughters for their benefit, and closes by saying: 44My will, which J w ill have written and signed to. day, will be found somewhere.? Washing ton Star, Virginians in the Peruvian Navy.? Many of our readers will be glad to bear that Captain D. I'. McCorkle, late of the Confederate States navy, is now in com mand of a fine frigate, one of the fleet commanded by Hear Admiral John H. Tucker, of the Peruvian navy. When last heard from, Captain McCorkle's ship was on its way to join the fleet, then ren dezvousing in the harbor of Valparaiso. These gentlemen, Captain McCorkle and Admiral Tucker, are both Virginians, in whom we feel much pride. They were uniong the brightest lights of the old navy, and deserve well of the Peruvians.?Neic York Knca. Factories in* Georgia and Alabama.? The Louisville Courier says: 14 An intelli gent gentleman, a resident of Goorgia, furnishes us the information, which we must confess surprises us much, that there arc at this time in process of erection in that State seventy-two mills for the manu facture of cotton and woolen goods ; some i)f them for calicoes." The Selma (Ala.) Messenger says: 44We hear of factories springing up all over the country. At Camden, Wilcox county, a wealthy company have taken the initiatory steps to erect a large building and fill it with the most approved machinery. At Carrollton, Miss., a factory is now in ope ration which in a short time will employ one huudred and eighty spindles. In Marengo county they are making arrangements to manufacture on a large scale. At Cuba dation, Sumpter county, a factory is diortly to be in operation." Thk Needle-gun Checkmated.?John Mltcliel writes from Paris to the New York New: " The needle-gun has met its match?a bullet-proof clothing for soldiers. At the Belgian Tir National, or Volunteer Shoot ing Ground, the thing was exhibited for the first time by its inventor, a M. Ber nard, uud in the most satisfactory manner, namely: By standing fire himself nt a hun dred yards, having previously shown that he wore nothing under his cloak but a shirt and vest. A conical bullet struck him in the breast; it flattened itself and fell down at his feet; he picked it up and showed it to the spectators. But he would suffer nobody to examine the texture of] his new cloth, not having yet secured his pateut. His head and face were covered with a steel cap; and the cloak reached to the ground. Such is the story that comes to us in Belgian newspapers." William Morrison, claimed by the Mon treal papers to have been the discoverer of j the source of the Mississippi, died last' week at his residence, on Morrison's island, between Sorel and Berthier, in the eighty second year of his age. lie was born in Montreal, C. E., in 1785. In 1802 be com menced bis apprenticeship with the X. Y. Fur Company ai Fond du Lac, and was soon after admitted as a partner. Daring the years 1803 and 1815 he explored the entire region of the Northwest, and win tered at many important geographical poiuts. In 1816 he took charge of John J. Aster's business, and remained with him until 1826, when he retired and came to Canada, and has since lived &t Berthier.

RntarprUe, Aaguat ll. Abont half-past 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon a small black cloud passed over this city, and almost In an instant, with out the least warning, a terrific gale of wind swept over the city, with a sad and disastrous effect. The most sad effect of the storm was the entire demolition of the now brick block on the sooth side of Gene sec street and west of Jefferson. It was a three-story building, and the walls were complete, except the front, which was in process of construction. The wind, com ing from the northwest, struck quartering into the open front, and in an instant the whole was a mass of ruins. There were at work in tho building when it fell six men, all of whom were buried in the debris and more or less hurt, tarn est Stocks, a German laborer, was killed instantly. He lived dtNhcDeertleM r ad. and leaves a wife and one child. " Guess hart a leg and one arm broken, ana was otherwise badly bruised. He liesini a verv eritical state, and his rocoierj'seon sidered doubtful. Michael Gerrc t was badlv hurt about the head and shoulders. One eye appeared to be put out, as it pro traded from hi. head and was very n.ueb swollen. Herman Goechell, one of the proprietors of the middle store, had anar. }ow escape. He was jtuitlcaving thebuild ing as the shower of brick and timbers rained upon liirn. His injuries are not re carded as serious. Balcorab, an old Frenchman, had his head and face badly cut, but is in no danger, the K*ucr?J opinion being that lie is too tough for an ordinary killing. Two other m<jn slightly bruised, though not enough to pro vent them from walking home. The wind was followed by a sharp storm of rain and hail, lasting about thirty mi nutes, after which tho sun came out fair and very warm. As soon as possible after the building fell a largo force of citizens commenced the work of extricating the buried men. In less than an hour the ruins had been thoroughly overhauled and all the men extricated. Scrap* from the \Rtloiml Republican. Rev. Jeremiah Day, I).

They arriicdat Sisson's in due time, and commenced their arduous labor of ascending the mountain. They took what is called the eonib, which was clear of snow, but after it was passed they found the passage along the side of the mountain difficult. They struggled upward, and when they had made nearly two-thirds of the distance, they could only accomplish about two miles in five hours. At length, when they had about exhausted their breath and strength, they reached what is called the Red Banks, about ten thousand feet high. Fissures in the snow and the exhausted condition of some of the party prevented their attain ing the summit, some four thousand five hundred feet higher, and they commenced their return. On arriving at the base of the mountain they began to suffer much from bloodshot eyes and swollen faces, which rendered them nearly helpless for two or three days.?Sacramento Inion, August 1st. __ How Little was Terbt-fied. ?
