Nor were these colored men mere spectators. While they evinced a modesty and diffidence that deno ted their good sense and good breeding, they were by no means lacking in giving intelli gent expressions of their views ; and, when called upon to give utterance to their senti ments, did it intelligently and judiciously Those of them who were called forth by their white friends to address the Conven tion, astonished all by the ability and elo quence with which they presented their views. These speeches we earnestly com' mend to our readers as the best evidence we can give of the capacity of our colored fellow citizens for intelligently exercising all the riguu oi mo American citizen." CAVI.HO I Ol' A MIKK. 1XKINO AND DISArrEAIUNO OF A DWELLING WITH ITS CONTENTS. On Friday afternoon, 10th inst., a singular and startling accident happened near Gi rardville, at the foot of Mahanoy Plane about six miles from Mahacoy City, this county, it seems that at that point "breast" of the Boston and Mahanoy Coal Company s colliery, had been worked within about twenty feet of the surface of the earth, and that located just above it stood a two story frame building, occupied by Mr. Thomas T. Myers, a breaker-boss at the colliery, and bis family. He, also, had number of boarders whose clothing, etc., were in the house. About 3 o'clock on Friday afternoon, as Mrs. Morris Robinson of this Borough, wife of the Superintendent of the colliery, who was on a visit to tho bouse, and Mrs.- Myers, were in the kitchen, they felt the house moving and rushed in baste iuto the open air. Two minutes had hurdly elupsed after they left the house, before it sank with a - surging, swaying motion into a huge chasm, to the depth of about eighty feet. Large masses of earth and rock from tho sides of the chasm, immediately closed in upon the house, burying it almost completely from view. The crash when it went down, was tremendous. The complete entombment of the dwelling, which was about thirty feet long, may be imagined, when we state that the chasm formed by the sinking of the mine, would readily have admitted Penn sylvania Hall, a building over one hundred l'eet in length. The bouse contained seven beds and bed ding, four stoveb, bureaus and other furni ture, besides a considerable quantity of clothing, a Sunday School library and some money. There was fire in several of the stoves and shortly after the occurrence smoke was seen issuing from the earth which cov ered the roof, rendering it almost certain that the house hud been set on fire. Streams of water were directed into the chasm, and it was hoped that the house would not be entirely destroyed. The value of Mr. Myers's property in the house was about $2000, of which 200 was iu money; a gold watch valued at 100, and furniture and clothiug enough to make up the balance. A boarder, who is a car penter at the mine, had $50 in money and clothing in the house. Mr. W. Robinson, sou of Mr. M. Robinson, who was also, a Doarder, had clothing, a revolver, etc., in the house, valued at $150. Several other boarders also sustained losses iu clothing and oiuer article. Mr. Myers was a soldier of Company K. 67th Pennsylvania Regiment, during the Rebellion ; is an estimable workingman, and the loss fall with peculiar severity upon uim. Fortunately, the startling occurrence was not attended by loss of human life. Had it taken place at night ten lives might have been lost. But it took place at an hour when some of Mr. Myers's children bad gone to school, while the others were playing outside. Mrs. Myers bad timely warning and effected her escape uninjured. Among the incidents of the descent, was the disappearance with the house, of a cat and three kittens: an old hen with ber five chicks, and thirty -six other chickens of va rious sizes. The cut and hen worked their way out alive, but the kittens and chickens are among the things that were. The immediate cause of the caving in of the mine, was the heavy rains we have bad lately, saturating the earth, and rendering it mine uauiu to mil to so mrge an excavation as tue "breast ' ot a mine.

Sir : I have the honor to submit here with a copy of the entries contained in the memorandum book found on the person of J. Wilkes Booth, at the time of his capture, certified by General Holt, Judge Advocate General, who has possession of The book, together with his report in relation thereto. The memorandum book was the first seen by me about the 26th day of April, 1805, Bhortly after Booth's capture, and a few hours belbro his remains reached Washing ton. It was brought to my bouso by Pro vost Marshal Baker and another person, who was, I thick, Lieutenant Colonel Con ger. Tho book was then examined by me in presence of Gen. Eckert, Assistant Secre tary ot War, and was found to contuin only the entries certified by General Holt ; also some photographs of females. Immediately preceding the entries some pages appeared to have been cut out, but there was noining indicating what had been written thereon, or whether anything had been written, nor when or by whom they had been cutout, Immediately alter careful examination ot the book and its contents, it was placed in the hands of General Eckert in the sume condition as when I first saw it to be rleliv ered by the Judge Advocate General, in whose possession, after its delivery to him by Gen. Eckert, I am informed and believe it has continued until the present time. Th last tirao I saw the book was some time lust winter. It was then before tho Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives, and was in all respects in exactly-the same condition as when I saw it first, without any change or alteration, so for as I could discover, in its contents. General Eckert reported to me that npon receiving the me moradura book from me he sealed it up, and locked it up in his safe, and it continued in his possession until he delivered it to the Judge Advocate General, and that it was then in the same condition as when it was brought to my house by Baker. Very respectfully, your obedient Bervant, Edwin il. Stanton, Secretary oi ar. To the President. Tho following is a copy of tho writin which was in pencil found in tho diary tuken from the body of J. likes Booth : Official copy. J. Holt, Judge Advocate General "Tiamo," April 13th, 14th. Friday the Ides. Until to-day nothing was ever thought of sacrificing to our country's wrongs. For six months we had worked to capture, but our cause beins almost lost, something de cisive and great must be done. But its fail ure was owing to others who did not strike lor their country with a heart. 1 struc boldly and not as the papers say. I walked with a firm step through a thousand of his tricnds and was stopped, but pushed on colonel was at his side. I shouted "Sic sem per" before I tired. In jumping I broke my leg. I passed all his pickets, and rode ou miles that night with the bone of my leg tearing the flesh at every jump. I can never repent it, though we hated to kill. Our country owed ail her trouble to him, and God simply made me the instrument of his punishment. X lie country la not what it was. The forced Unicn is not what I have loved. I care not what becomes of me. I have no desire to outlive my country. This night, "before the deed," I wrote a long ar ticle and left -it for one of tho editors of the Rational Intelligeneer, in which I fully set forth our reasons for our proceedings, lie or the Government FniDAV, 21. After being hunted like a dog through swamps, woods, and last night being chased by gunboats till 1 was lorced to return wet, cold, and starving, with every mau's hand against me. I am here in de spair, and why i For doing what lirutus was honored lor, what made 1 ell a hero, and yet I, for striking down a greater tyrant than they ever knew, am looked upon as a common cut-throat. My action was purer than either of theirs. One hoped to be great, the other had not only his country's, but his own wrongs to avenge. I hoped for no gain. I knew no private wrong. 1 struck lor my country, and that alone a country that groaned beneath this tyranny and prayed for this end, aud yet now behold the cold hand tucy extend to me. God cannot par don me if I have done wrong; yet I cannot see my wrong, except in serving a degenerate people. The little, the very little 1 leit be hind to clear my name, the Government will not allow to be printed, bo ends all. f or my country I have given up all that makes life sweet and hcly, brought misery on my family, and am sure there is no pardon in tho Heaven ior me, since man condemns me so. I have only heard of what has been done, except what I did myself, and it fills me with horror. God, try and forgive me, and bless my mother. To night I will once more try the river, with the iutent to cross, though i ubvo grrnier uesire anu almost a iniuu 10 return to Washington, and in a measure clear my name, which I fuel I can do. I do not repent the blow I struck. I may before my God, but not to man. I think I have done well, though I am abandoned, with the curse of Cain upon me, when, if the world knew my heart, that one blow would have made me great, though I did not desire ? greatness. To night I try to escape these iloodhounds once more. Who, who, can read his fate t God's will be done. I have too great a soul to die like a crimiual. Oh 1 may He, may He spare me that, and let me die bravely. I bless the entire world. Have nevei hated or wronged any one. This last was not a wrong, unless God deems it so ; and it is with Uim to damn or bless me. And for this brave boy with me, who often prays yes, before and since with a true and sincere heart Was it crime in hi m I If so, why can he pray the samet I do not wish to shed a drop of blood, but I must fight the course. 'Tis all that's left mo. Upon piece of paper found in the diary, and supposed to have been torn from it, it written the following : "My Dea (Pieoe torn out.) Forgive me, but I have tome little pride. I cannot blame you for want of hospitality. You know your own alfairs. 1 was tick, tired, with a broken limb and in need of medical advice, and I could not have turned a dog from my door in such a plight.

The "Diary" purports to be one for 1864, and the leaves cut or torn from it probably contained entries of that year, and were thus destroyed by Booth himself. It Is absolute ly certain that the diary is in all respect as it was when it came into my hands, and Col. Conger, who Was prominent in the pur suit and capture of Booth, after having carefully examined it in my presence on yesterday, declared its condition to be now precisely the same as when he took it from Booth's body after be had been shot, the writing in it being the same and all which then contained. Col. Conger was ex amined before the Judiciary Committee of the Uouee ol Rcpresetatives to-day. J. HOLT. Judge Advocate General. From .Mexico. By the arrival of the steamer Raleigh, Capt. Marsh man, from Havana on the 20th, we are in receipt of highly important newt iroin Mexico. Senor Don Joso Ramirez, son of Maxl milian's late Secretary of State, left the City of Mexico on the 28th of April for Havana. He reports that when he left Mexico I'ornrio Diaz had his batteries planted for the siege of the capital. there were nineteen pieces playing on the Peral-villo gate and that of San Cosine was being attacked. The main points of defense that Marqucz had were the gates. lie has 45,000 men to defend the capital. I he executions at rnebla were ordered by General Diego. Alverez, at the moment, was assaulting a fortification, and when General Diego heard ot it he ordered it to be stopped and on the following day allowed his prisou era to go and choose a place ot refuge. Gen. xsovlega, the commander ot the troops that surrendered at Puebla, is now living in quiet at Jalapa, which is occupied by Republican troops. I.Ti:ST I'KO.II MEXICO. New York, May 15. The steamer Colunv bus has arrived with Havana dates of 11th Imperial reports from Vera Cruz sny that the Liberals have been repulsed at Querata ro and were being driven towards San Luis rotosi by Miramon, who had sent three thousand men to relieve the city of Mexico. 1 he wounding and death ot Miramon is positively denied. Maximilian again proposes a congress to confirm him or appoint a chief to whom ho will resign tho power. The Havana Dinrio has a letter stating that Maximilian arrived in the city of Mex ico at the head of 8,000 men. On the ar rival of Maximilian battle was given to Diaz and he was completely defeated, taking all his artillery and fifteen hundred prisoners, who were immediately incorporated into tho Imperial army. General Alvarez, owing to the execution of the Imperial prisonets at Puebla, with drew his command from Vera Cruz by the steamer bringing them from Diuz, and will disband them. Passengers from Vera Cruz by the steamer bringing this news pronounce it all false, except that Miramon has not been killed. A gentleman wto' left the City of Mexico on the 21st of April, is certain that no one left for Vera Cruz after that date ; that Mar quez had about seven thousand troops, and , was closely besieged by Diaz, with eleven thousand cavalry ; and that no battle had been fought for some time ; that Marquez had abandoned Tncubaya and Chapultepec; that the aqueducts supplying the City of Mexico with water were cut, and that no lood entered the city. Mhe city was sup plied with water from artesian wells. On the 28th Querctaro was more closely besieged than ever, and the garrison having no cannon shot were firing stones. The diary of the siege of Vera Cruz, published by the newspapers, has been stopped by order of the Imperial authorities.

Juarez had levied contributions to the amount of two millions dollars. Immediately after the receipt of Secretary Seward's letter, he issued an order in refer ence to the treatment of Maximilian, saying that his life should be spared. It was feared Lscobado would have the unfortunate Prince assassinated, notwithstanding orders to the contrary. That General was sent to com mand an expedition against Canales, who had rebelled in the north.
