learn, it appears flint Mr. pollard, about 3
o'clock P. M. yesterday, discovered Hip
Kins in a carriage in company with the fe
male referred to, and approaching him,
ordered him to alight ; Hipkins did ho, and
Mr. Pollard entered the coach, but after
driving a .short distance, alighted, and, it is
alleged, agreed to min t the female at 4 P.
M. ?he failed to nppcar ; hence the scarch
for her, resulting in her discovery at the
Fountain flotel, as stated. The affair pro
duced considerable excitement, and was
the subject of general conversation up to a
late hour last night.

As t ti?> Johnson Departmental Club is
much magnified by telegraph, it is but jus.
tire to t !>?* clerks in the department* at
Washington to say that they number over
5.0(H) ; tli.it they have all been wen and in
formal that their places will mainly de
pend <>ii their joining that club ; and that
\e! but 103 out of the f>, 01)0 have Wcotne
members, ami when the club marched to
meet the President, on his return, their
numbers, all told, were seventy-lour.
The Commissioner of Internal Kevenue
having been asked " if carriage-makers are
allowed, under the present law, to deduct
from their returns of sales the value of
Mich articles entering intothc manufacture
or carriages as iuuy have already pai<l the
manufacturers' tax," has replied as follows:
The new law exempts spokes, hubs,
bows and felloes, poles, shafts, arms and
?heels not ironed or finished ; springs and
wire made of steel ; axles made of iron or
steel, rivets, nuts, washers, and bolts used
iu the manufacture of vehicles or carriages,
and also paints. Hut the iron and steel
from which many of these articles are
made are subject to an ini|M>st or excise
duty, also the leather, cloth, and trim
mings. And tiie finished carriage is liable
to a duty of five percent, ad valorem, with
out any deductions whatever of articles
?or materials, taxed or untaxed, which
enter into the construction of the car
riage. If any assessor has allowed de
ductions of any kind from the value of the
tinished carriage before assessing the tax,
lie has done it on his own responsibility
and w ithout authority of law, and measures
will be taken immediately to correct the
erroneous assessment.
One of the delegates to the Pittsburg
Convention, who was refused leave of ab

No surprise is manifested at t ho remarks
? cul<?iri"iic of lint it It reported to have been
| made recently at Bedford, Pa., in this city,
I where *urh things as cheering for Booth
|uiul havis, ami otters of money to erect a
I monument to the memory of the former,
I are daily occurrences. Since the Presi
dent's open sympathy with the enemies of
I'ninn, ex-rebel* and rebel sympathizers in
this riiy have carried their heads high, ami
art- beginning in talk holdly.

There is a painful feeling abroad, irre
sistible by reason of many corroborative
? ircnm>tances, that the President's mind
, is more or less atleeted by the cares of of
! lit-e: that be has been in a morbid condi
tion fur months past- is the belief of many.
This is realized more particularly by those
who are in almost daily intercourse with
him, and it i> thus his best friends account
for his many vagaries and inconsistencies.
A close observer could not have failed to
notice when the President returned from
his recent trip West that his countenance
indicated great mental tribulation : his
smile was forced and unnatural, and it evi
dently required an elfort to appear at ease.
The li ar of impeachment, a lingering doubt 1
aN t<> the success of his policy, and hence a
failure to be reelected ? an event upon
which his heart is unquestionably set ? and
ab< ve all, the dread of assassination, are
constantly before his mind's eye. On the
'other hand, there arc those with good op
portunities lor observation who scout the
prevalent rumor and profess to believe the
President as sound in miml as at any time
i during the last live years. Without at
tempting to decide between these two opi
nion-, 1 give the l iets as 1 li ltd them.

Fortrkss Monkok, September 25. ? Ex
aminations made by the banks, and at the
Gosport navy -yard, where Mr. Flint, the
alleged defaulter, held the position of chief
accountant, have discovered the aggregate
of the forgeries distributed among the vic
timized institutions to be as follows: Ex- j
change National Bank about $ti,000; First
National Bank, $3, GOO ; Insurance Trust I
Company, $t),20l) ? total, $15,800. Tho j
forgeries were mostly upon Government
bills and vouchers. In some instances
these bills were fabrications, and in some j
instances duplicates. The Exchange Na
tional Bank will lose nothing, as it holds a
deed of trust conveying the Old Dominion I
newspaper oflice proj?erty to the bank.
The position of .Mr. Flint in the navy -yard ;
was that of chief accountant, whose duty
it is to examine and certify toall accounts,
with a view to the prevention of frauds.
The present whereabouts of Mr. Flint are
merely conjectures, many imagiuing that
he has already left tho country.

said :
u ' Emancipation itself would not satisfy j

j would be to raise the negroes to a social
and political equality with the whites, and
j that being effected, we should find the pre
sent condition of the two races reversed.
I They and their northern masters would be
the masters, and we the slaves; the
condition of the white race in the British
West India islands, as bad as it is, would
be happiness to ours ; there the mother
country is interested in sustaining the su.
premacy of the European race.'

there is no reason why Kussia should be bound
by the Paris treaty of 1K.V5 ; that the Black

binding. The writer expresses an opinion
that the Eastern question will be re opened,

The Hndlrnl Convention nt I'letelniul.
T'ittsuck'I, September 27 ? The proceedings
of the Convention yesterday were animated.
Several amusing songs ridiculing the Presi
[ dent were listened to with fivor. Resolutions
| were passed hostile to the President. General
Uutler made a characteristic speech, and Ge
neral Willich denounced th? Cleveland Con
i vention as made up from the stragglers from
the army. A dispatch was received from Ge
neral Fremont, which elicited three cheers for
him. General Uutler was the lion of the Con
vention. Among the resolutions presented by
Colonel Straight was one asking ? 'ougress to
i direct the President to remove from the late
! rebel States all arms and ammunitions of war
not needed for present use there, which was
adopted, with ono vote in the negative; the
first and only one of the character cast iu the
Convention, and which created a sensation,
j The resolutions also endorse the constitu
tional amendment, and assert that its propo
sitions are the mildest terms ever granted to
'subdued rebels; that tho President has no
riplit to a policy as against the legislative de
partment of the Government, and that his
acts have converted conquered rebels into im- |
pudent claimants of rights which they have
forfeited, and to places which they have dese
I crated ; that the right of the conqueror to
j legislate for ihe conquered is the public law of
i all civilized nations.
| General Ilutler, in his remarks, said : 41 As
soon as these communities have shown a de
sire to be received back in an humble? mark
j the word? in an humble thankfulness for the
I clemency meted out to them? because it is for
men who have erred to be humble when they
I acknowledge their mistako? they should be re
ceived back; but not until then. Air. Davis
is ]>erhaps by no means the worst man
j in the Southern Confederacy ; but ho chose
to have the place of a representative man,
he played for an empire, and staked his life on
! the result, and let him pay the forfeit, [ap
j plause] as an example for all time that no man
shall plot (reason in the halls of Congress of
the United States. [Applause.] General
Lee left the army of the I'nited State* and
went into Virgiuia, and was at the head of the
rebel forces of Virginia before his State sece
ded, and carried her out at the point of the
bayotet. Now, gentlemen, we had an Arnold,
and he escaped punishmeut, but he did not re
main here. We have, as it seems tome, an
equally guilty traitor, and the question to be
decided in this country is whether his surren
der as a prisoner of war when he was captured
shall avail him against the desertion of his Hag
to take service in the armies of the enemies of
, his country. [Criesof " no, no."] 1 therefore
again say that 1 would make an example of
I this man, so that no soldier hereafter should
ever be found to desert the flag of his country,
i [" Good," and cheers ]
Now, then, fellow-soldiers, what shall be
done with the soldier who deserts his flag and
takes with him the secret of his commander ??
[cries of " Hang him " and " Shooting is too
good for him."]? who desert* for the purpose
of takiug a command, bribed by a higher com
mand in the armies of the enemies of his
country ?
