It becomes a sad duty to chronic-e this morning the death of one more of the men who have given to the society of Wilmington its elevation and chat m. This estimable, high toned gentleman, of a type which is fast passing awav, died at his residence la this city on yenterday morning, after a lingering illness of loug duration. His remains will be interred this ruoruiDg, tbe fun eral to take place at 11 o'clock front Si. James' church, and thence to Oakdale Cemetery. The history of the family to .which the deceased belonged is intimately conneoted with the history of Wil mington for more thau three-quarters of a century. In the days when the' society of Wilmington was renowned for its hospitality aud refinement, when affluence and ease made life iu the ('ape Fear region as desirable as anywhere on the American conti nent, the family occupied its own distinct position and was o of the integers which gave to the whole its fame abroad. Col. Green was the worthy scion of a good stcck, carrying in his breast th spirit of chivalry, and in his dportmeut the polished manner, which were tle high characteristics of gentlemen of the old school. Courteous and polite to all. he was the soul of personal honor, and iuheritin r an open-handed generosity, the mystic power of bis presence drew around him a host of friends, wiio became knitted to him by the tenderest ties. Any written account of such a character is lame and nrrsatisfaetoryin comparison with tbe lasting and sweet impressions left on the minds of tu-m who knew him. Pictures of natural scenery and objects seldom afford satis faction to those who are familiar with the originals, and a man's own family mont readily discover blemishes in a likeness of himself. No power of art can impart to an image the beauty, or vividness, or interest of the living nubject: and to give a true outline, aud a faithful representation of the character of the deceased which shall awuken pleasing recollections, must fall to the duty of a hand more-capable of the task than ours. Death of Itev. A. Paul Kepiton, I. A telegraphic dispatch from Capt. R. W. Lamb to Col. Mcllhenney cou veyed the sad intelligence of the sudden death iu the city of Norfolk, of the llev. Dr. Kepiton, on yesterday evening.' The remains are expected to arrive in the city by the WelJon train on Mouday evening, and will be tak :n charge of by the Independant Older of Odd Fellows, who will inter them with the honors of that fraternity of which ha was at one time the highe:-t officer in North Carolina. Dr. Kepiton has made the city of Norfolk his home for the past rive or six years, but Wilmington was his residence for the greater part of his manhood life, having removed from the State of Virginia to this city in the year 1839. Ho v educated at Wil liam and Mary College, and by that in stitution the degree of Doctor of Di vinity was conferred upou him.

But finally pay day dawned somewhere and borrowed capital began to explode and the whole country has been going off like a crazy shotgun ever since.

A singular occurrence, indicting the curious characters of dreams, and how they sometimes come true, is re ported in the case of John White, a colored white-washer, residing on Fourth avenue. Like many of his race, he is an inveterate purchaser of lottery tickets, and speculates iu pol icy. And, like all gamblers, is trout superstitious in regard to dreams of numbers and omens of luck. At the recent drawing of the New Orleans lottery, White, like most of his fellows, was in ecstasy of excitement over the lottery, and contemplated an invest ment. The thing pervaded his sleepiug as well s his walking thoughts, so that it is not surprising that he dreamed of the lottery. One j night he dreamed that hi was present ; at. the drawing, and that two cap ital prizes, aggregating 150,000, fell to two numbers that . he distinctly saw 12,586 and 4. He was naturally impressed by his dream; still more impressed when for the next two nights it was repeated without modification in form. This, as any psychologist or studtnt of cerebral phenomena knows, was less remark able than it seems, but a singular coincidence, or rather series of coinci cidences, fodowed. That moring as he went; to his work, passing by tho Lake Shore depot, ho noticed tho i umbers of the 'engine aud baggago cai or the E'khart accommodation, and they were 258 and 641; the utim bers of his dream, though in a differ ent circle, and the two bouses where he was employed for the day hp jened to be 125 North Sangamon and 8G4 West Harrington streets. There is perhaps nothing really re mai-kubie or uuaccountuble about this, as a rational explanation would make the dreim the conse quence of a previous knowledge of aud reflection - upon these numbers. Ho saw the same train every morning on his way to work, an3 liad probably noticed the coincidence of the num bers of the houses where he was en gaged to work. This coincidence, through the process of unconscious cerebration, undoubtedly begat the dream, with all its harmony of detail. So possessed was he wth the idea of tiios! numbers proving the fortu nate ones that he collected Al the money he could scrape together, raised more on a chattel mortgage upou his scanty furniture, and bongUt two full tickets, costing -$100, in the lottery, securing, to his great joy, tlis numbers of his dream. The news speedily circulated, and there was in reaso excitement in Africa. Every body went to the policy shops and piayeu as nis numoers, ia, o, Oi lue evening of the drawing came at last; not au eye was closed in Ethiopia, and next morning by daybreak the whole population hud secured copies of this paper containing tho official report. "liead it out, Brndder Washing ton," exclaimed one anxious gam bler. "Hpit it out ! What's 12. 480? What's done become ob 1?"

Iu looking critically at these, one is remiaded still furtuar of the iaunent of the poet, when he sang that iu the be'ter days of Rome the reve nues of individuals were small, bat those of the State were ample. This uggests itself at once iu Washington as haviug once been true of this coun try, but now.it has been curiously re versed. The government, if we may be pardoned the phrase, is ''hard up:'' the olfiee holders take their portfolios, or their desks, poor meu, and sudden ly blaze out iu all the splendor of Jeemes de la Piusche himself.

If this should happen, the rr.o-.ev, after the deduction of tlie offi cial charges would be paid to Drexel, Morgan fe Co., in whose name the dia monds are consigned. The trouble is that Congress in authorizing Lieut. Fitch to receive the present to his wife, neglected to relieve htm from the pay ment of the duties. Tne necklace and earrings which compose the gift were first said to be worth $250,0000, but experts have since appraised them at $. 5,000. The duty on this amount would be about $40,000. God.

Neither the secre tary of the treasury, the collector nor any of his deputies are disposed to exercise their oower ol granting a xree nnrmit for the diamonds, and tho Turkish ambassador, who has the offi cial nrerocrative of receiving them in his name, will not ask for tbeir release because the Khedive is only recognized by his government as a vassal. .

The Secretary of the Navy defends his loans to the bankrupt- firm of Jay Cooke, McCnlloch Co., of Londou, on the grouud that it was done ul the requoHt of the Se-uetary of the Treas ury, and under authority aud with express assent of tho President. At the time of the disturbed condition of the financial world in 1873. and the possible complication of the foreign agents of the government to whom it was cecessary to entrust the fuuds ad vanced it was deemed advisable to meet the demands which were then falling due. The report of tho amounts advanced show that Jay Cooke. Mc Cultoch & Co. drew nearly two million dollars anuuly more than was entrusted to the house of Barring Brothers, and agreed to pay four per cent. per annum on the amount less one percent, on all disbursements. The fact substantially for transferring the agency was to sustain the tottering house cf Jay Cooke & Co.

I resolved, theref.re, to resign my office as Gov ernor of the State of Mississippi, but meanwhile articles of imperchment were instituted against me, aud of course I could not, and would not re tire from my position under the impu tation of any ciiarg aff ;cting my hooor or integrity for the reason indicated.

Calcraft, who recently ret red from hhe trying position of iiui.p'man in England, had an agreeable custom of always shaking hands with those upon whom he was about to carry out the senteuee of the law. But it has been observed that Marwood, his successor, never does this and speculation has beeu rife in certain quarters as to the cause of his departure from this pre cedent. i?reemasons will Do interested to iearu that the reason is "because he is a Free aud Accepted Mason, and dreads the condemned man giving him a Masonic grip in return." I iiud the above copied into several papers, aud am curio-it; to know the pos.-ituhties should the Masomo "grip meet the hand of the execu tioner. And, Qrt fc, is it allowa le for a Freemason to take the degraded ollice of haugmm? Second, would tho condemned man go through his trial and condemnation and give no sigu ?" Masonic signals,' understood where rer the institu tion is found, aud it is found the world over, have certainly stood men good service when driven to extremity. My grandfather was one of the early Ma sons of the State cf Maine, having organized a lodge in his own premises. At one time, while commanding his ship in the Caribbean Sea, he was as sailed by pirates. Having no ord nance on board and flight having proved unavailing, he was obliged to heave to and wait the result. Tbe buccaneers proved to bo Spaniards. Mv grandfather ordered his men be low, and placed himself, pistol in hand, upou the quarter-deck. I have heard him say that the captain was a hand some man, with gentlemanly manners, and elegantly equipped with sword, belt and pistols. As he approached the spot occupied by my relative, the latter bethought himseif to mike the Masonic sign appropriate for such an occasion, immediately me captain gave command for his men, who had swarmed the desk, to retire to their own craft, while the two officers retired to the cabin, and shortly after the pirate left and hoisted sail to depart. Now, here was a man engaged in a most nefarious business submitting to the laws of the Masonic Order. Would 1 a felon be likely to omit his opportuni ty for escape by a like means, before tbe necessity for the final "grip?" Would the Order interfere for an c knowledged felon? I think not. Would the executioner, shocked at receiving the Maspnic grip at such an extremity, be likely to act in accord ance with the laws of the Order, or would he act in accordance with the civil oath by virtue of which he holds his office? I will remark, incidentally, that when the men were ordered be low, the steward, impelled by an irre sistible curiosity, poked his head up to see how matters stood, when it was as cleanly shaved off by the murderous crew as if guillotined.

Xirrongh our special correspondence we have been able to contribute something to the stock of information.

No Cou federate has been regarded as a trust 1.1 '1 i a wortuy peuneui uniess ne at once alued himself to the republican party. Mr. Yeates of North Carolina, in the. House, the other day, spoke with some litterness of the fervor of affection with which Gen. Lougstreet had beeu welcomed back to the Union fold; aud ne also alluded to the deference shown to Gov. Holdei, "for twenty-odd years the 'leading secessionist . of North Carolina." To the tpeech of M . Yeates we desire to call ' attention, as it exhibits the present sentiments of lit h ast one Confederate, and as he declares, of his constituents. Mr. Yeates said: "Though I dispise the contemptible manner in which we have been treated uud insulted here, thank God I can say to-day that I love the government of the UniWd States, and shall jftnnd by it as long as I live. You cannot diive me ever again to go against this government It will bo'- tue last lesson as well as the first that. we will teach our boys, to stand by the old nag. Wnen a man in Mr Yeates's position says this, at the same time complaining ot the treatment to which a class at the South has been suojet reu, it is m aua polite tnat we should fully comprehend the ground and cause-i o his complaint. To this simple justice he and his associates aro clearly entitled. First Mr. Yeates says : "They kept us out iu the cold ; they would not pardou us ; they tried to starve us into submission to their party, and now they raise the howl that we are rebels be cause they cannot buy ns. Again, according to Mr. Yeates, they have un dertaken "to bribe aGd demoralizoour people. They have broken down the puritv of the ballot-box. Vhe i tnev found that they could not g!-t our votes they turned the colored people loose and let them vote." This was not all. Mr. Yeates complains that, offices were multiplied and filled with carpet baggers. He quotes Mr. Bruce, the colored Senator from Mississippi, as saying that "the miud3 of the colored people were poisoned." The country was reduced "to a howling waste aud wilderness. Lioerty was destroyed m L misiana and South Caroiiua. and in all the States where the Adminis-ra- ion had the power to do it." "Spies." Mr. Yeates slso complains of, and a systematic robbery of the Southern people. "They taxed us upon stamps; they taxed our laud; they taxed us upon everything. They threatened us and arrested us and carried us before the Federal courts.'' "Why, gentle men," r.aid Mr. Yeates, I tell yon there was a periect re gn ot terror; aud tney left our country desolate." - We quote these statements, ieaviDg much nuextracted, beciuse we have here set forth the injuries to which, in the opinion of many of her most intel ligent aud mod rate citizens, the South has been subjected. There may be some feeling and some exaggeration iu them; it would be strange if there wer i not: but suppose we ree-ird as true only what republican Represent atives know to be true! Suppose we take into account onlv admitt 'd, in vestigated and indisputable wrongs ! Are carpet-baggers, for instance, mere myths ? Have there been no political wrongs in Louisiana and South Caro lina ? No false imprisonment ? No onerous taxation ? No employment cf .he negro vote to secure the election of unworthy candidates? Have the revenue laws been honestly adminis tered ? "Stealing," said Mr. Yeates, "has been the order of the day." Does anybody doubt this ! Will the most ar dent republican assert that the men in power for the last three or four years at the South, kept go either by the ap pointment or influence or bayonets of the general government, have been wise, honest, politic ra'ers, adapted by character to meet this enormous emergency? The shames and criaios which have made a portion cf thi South discontet ted and unreconciled, are known to everybody. They have been reported by committees of inves tigation. They have been debated in Congress. They have passed into history.

The committee on foreign relations were instructed to iuqnire whether any conflkst exists Iretweeu the United States and Great Britain in the con struction of the extradition treaty and what legislation is necessary. Knott, of the judiciary committee, presented articles of impeachment against Belknap. TLern are five arti cles. Toe "specifications are ail un known. They art confined cxclu-ively to th Fort Sill transactou. The discussion on the proposition to substitute silver for fractional curren cy occupied the day without result. Senate Ihe preliminary business was unimportant. lh" Mississippi resolution wa i re sumed, and Bayard spoke iu opposi tion. He urged that "we abstain tr ni uu po.icy oi inierieiencd WLn-u nas been so damaging, and let us have peace in all the State3." Uuring Bavard s speech Mr. Bout well, interrupting, called the attention of the Senator to his remark of tens of millions of dollars, and thought he would find that these facts would not bear out the assertion, and asserted that what raonev was epent then waa made necessary by tin acts of the party to which the Senator belonged oy ttieir oeeds ot vioieace tueir in timidation of the colored people and other such acts of violence. Mr. Bayard said the Senator had tak i advantage of his courtesy iu yielding for a question to interject a political tirade of a bitter kiud, and if lie had derived itny comfort from it he "was welcome to it. ' When Layard concluded Boutwell said that when he offeoded any one he generally wanted to explain or apolo gize. He thought the Senator from Delaware in quite an augry manner nad charged him with injecting a po;it:cal tirade into his speech that waa the inau tiers of men who had been brought up under theode of slavery. He Uoutwell) was not here a scholar or a tt .cher, and -he did not propose to by taught iii manners by the Senator from Delaware. It waa the naturil outgrowth of the svs em of slaverv, tnd men who were ra.sed u ider such influences could not be expect- d to maintain a proper coDs derHii.m for the rights of others. He further de nounced the slavery regime, and said that a! ter remaining iu the Union for nearly a century with their unjust de mauds then they withdrew from the Uuiou to further establish til-' ir in famous principles, and h-j Senator from Delaware wis among the first to come t tneir defence iu The te-nate. He did uot propose to take lesions from Mich men as that. Bayard replied that it did not ii . hi the head of any man to bay that lieha i oneanvthmg that was not faithful aud loyal to the Union. He bi..ured j to a family every drop of tiie blood hi vhose veins came from loyal peopie, aud r.i(i who charged differeut-y states in his throat a lie. The Senator fr.m Masi-achusets had, as he thought iu a very angry m me jr, inteij -eted a pj i tie tl tirade into his speech. H? suid tt, and he did not care to modify his language iu the least. Mortou followed, after whose speech Bruco obtained the floor for to-morrow. The condition of Representative Wilson has somewhat iiaproved. The President was unable to receive visitors to-day. I he chief of the bureau cf statistics is before the appropriation committee protesting against a reduction of tlie appropriation for that bureau from $70,000 to $10,000. Two hundred and fifty dollars have been subscribed in the Treasury Department for suffering employes of the printing aad engraving bureau.

The Navy Department will require no defioiency appropriation this year. Schenck's evidence to day consists in a scries of denials. Mr. Hewctt, a member of the committee, called the attention of the chairman to the fact that he had received this morning the following cablegram from London to the chairman of the committee ou foreign affaire: "In confirmation of Lyon's evidence I have the original draft of Schenck's letter of resignation in Park's handwriting, and respecting tho operations I have proof that Scheuck received a cable telegram it. Paris, December 13, 1S72, from Pirk ad vising sale on tho intended pat-sing of the dividends, and Scheuck sent Cheesborough . a telegram to sell ten thousand shares Lit him." Tiie dis patch was signed by McDougall, chair man of the Emma Mine Co. Gen. Schenck said he was confident that no such draft of the letter existed, and he was not advised to sell stock as stated in the telegram. He alo denied that he sent a telegram to Cheesbo rough iu relation to the fcubject. Federal prisoners hereafter from Maryland, Virginia and several other States will be sent to the We3t Vir ginia penit3ntiary instead oi Albany. The fgllowing is au extract from Custer's examination. Question. Had the Secretary of War been a man pure in purpose could these frauds have gone on? Answer. They could Lot possibly. They could not have beeu carried on without his consent aud connivance. It 13 strange that the morale of the army has not been affected when its head was so unworthy. I am proud to say, however, that I think you Will find that brass buttons have not beeu tarnished. Gen. Rice publishes a ci.rd in the Republican tunt if the Star's report of Gen. Custar's evidence is correct it is a lie. Gen.

Senate Various petitions werfi pre sented against a change in the taviff. The Mississippi investigation reso lution was resumed. Key of Tennes see was the only democrat who voted for the resolution. He said be was glad the late war was fought out and was over with;the South was not wholly to blame in the- war, the flames of which'existed many years ago and were protected by the constitution. He spoke highly of the colored people and their fidelity to the whites during tho war, and thought the people -of his State were willing to protect them and aid them. The South was poor and weak and wanted peace. It was time : to forget that there was a Soutn or a North. The war was over aud the consequences had a right to enjoy the result of their victory. He was willing to admit that the term- granted by the victors vi ere much more liberal and maTnanimous than he expected. He wus auxions to have the ooutn acqui esce in the result aud accept the Bitu iition: Could not the North be asked to bear with them and help them to overcome their past difficulties and ruake this a land of peace and pros perity. He should vote for the reso lu'iou even though he should b3 the only member of his party to do so. If this state cf affairs existed the par ties ought to be punished and he did not wish to have it said that he was' in favor of protectin g them, but he did not think the reports were true, yet he was willing to have the subject inves tigated. "The speech throughout was highly conciliatory and dispassionate. After further debate Chrsitiancy's substitute was adopted by a vote of 27 to 19.

Schenck's cross-examin itiou was j mereiv a repetition oi Ins direct evi dence. When Bruce concluded bis speech, which occupied ueariv an hour, he was congratulated by both the democratic ati.i republican members. His niaiu points were that the outrages i'i the State were the ork of the White League, a smsll minority of the dem ocrats, and that peace would certainly eoine when the uporo vote was divided.

J. f rojtor Knott had a long inter view with Pierrepon: before aud after the Cabinet meeting yesterday. It is believed a pardon for ex-Chief Dotec fve Whitley was placed at Knott's dis cretion, and. that all facts relative to the safe burglary will oj elicited as well as other matters. It is understood that Senators Sher mau and Jones and tlie treasury offi cials don't lise the silver bill as pasoed yesterday. The debt statement shows ?21,750 000 decrease.

The impeachment articles come up Monday immediately after the reading of the journal. The foreigu relation committtee cross-examined Joseph-E. Lyons, aud he said that since 1868 he had never been inside the Emma mine though he had often tried. He challenged Schenck to produce proof that he and Johnson were of bad character and "unworthy of belief. When Lyons swore that he lived by borrowing and had only fifty cents, he must have forgotten that ho owned one-third oi the Emma mine. He was doubtful until 1870 wheiher it was worth anything. Iu the War Department investigating examination the following occurred, District Attorney Dyer on the stand : Q You have read the testimony of Mr. Bell as printed in last" night's star. Is it correct ? A. Substantially; as far as I am concerned, it is. Bsll said when he cams to St. Louis ho met me at toy house; it was at F.aton'a bouse he wis our assistant council. Bell was not used as a witaass in St. Louis be cause Luckey was not put on the stand. The defeuse summoned both Luckey and Bradley, but did not put them on the stand, aud it was for this reason that Bell was not used in re butal. The House to-day proceeded to the consideration as a special order of the bill reported by Reagan of Texas from the oommittee on commerce to amend the laws concerning commerce ' and navigation and the regulation of steam vc-seis. After a three hours discus sion in regard to fog horns, steam cocks, valves, lights, larboard and starboard courses and other .matters," about which none of the members participating,. prof tsed to have much information, audnstherj was au equal lack of interest in the subject the further consideration of the bill was postponod till next Monday.

Washington, March 31 Night In the War Department investigation C. S. Bell of Jackson, Miss., testified that Belknap asked him if he could pay $2,000 a year for a post trader ship for which Bell made personal applica tion. He further stated that Rice was appointed a secret detective. His du ties were in St. Louis to look up pen sion xrauds. iie was employed by Lucky to look in District AtSorney Dyer's hand and see what evidence they had against Babcock. He took hold of it surruptitiously and reported to Lucky in November last; he told Lucky the evidence against Babcock was weak. He road over a great many papers in the case in Dyer's office. Dyer did not know he was Luckey's agent and subsequently I took measures to inform the President that Babcock was guilty because the Presi dent told me if Babcock was guilty he wanted to know it; he was then dis missed, A. C Bradly.who was in Bab cock's interest, told Bell to get the papers from Dyer's office and destroy them. Lucky had told me to act under Bradley's orders. I met Babcock and h'e told me to get all the papers, that part of them would do no good; he told me if I got the evidence I would bo rewarded. Bell was to be ap pointed special agent by the Attorney General and had a card from the Pres ident to Pierrepont saying: "This is the man of whom I spoke." I did not get the appointment. Dyer told Pier repont he would not allow me to work in his office because he had an idea what I was coming for. There was correspondence with Luckey in cipher. uaococK repeatedly said there were telegrams in existence which, if the prosecution got hold of, we could not explain. Bradly paid him sixty and Babcock one hundred dollars. He was not employed for any other pur pose than to prevent the conviction of Babcock. The President, however. did not so understand it. He told Bell iu the start that if Gen. Babcock was guilty he wanted to know it. Attor ney General Pierrepont was averse to his going to St. Louis for the purpose of playing spy on Dyer. The Presi dent wanted him to find out whether Babcock was guilty, but Lucky, Bab cock, Bradly and Storrs wanted him to destroy all the evidence he found of his guilt. C. A. Bradly is the brother-in-law of A. H. Sheppard. Secretary Chandler knew what Bell was to do be fore he started for St. Louis. NEW T0RK. New York, April 1. Night.

The cotton market was verv steady until the last half of the week, since which time prices for American descriptions have been somewhat lower, though quotations are unchanged. Some classes of Egyptian are higher. There has been only a moderate inquiry for Brazilian and prices are in favor of buyers. The trade demand has been smaller thau for the previous weeks of March, Speculators have also taken less but exporters have continued to purchase freely. Holders have sbowa more inclination to meet the views of buyers and esnecia'lv Thursday and Friday. They are, however, not dis posed to press sales, seeming to have confidence in present values. Some lots bought recently for speculation are reoffer-ing and much, of .the weak ness apparent Thursday and Friday is probably attributable to this cause.

From the Charlotte Observer : A negro at Swift Island fnri-w in Montgomery county, drank a quart of whisky at a draught and died of it. There was quite a large meeting of railroad men at the Central Hotel, on yesterday. The following roads were represented by the following gentle men: CoL J. H. Fisher and J. B.

Clark. of the Carolina Central, and J. J. Gormley of the Atlantic Tennessee & Ohio. It was a meeting of consulta tion, to interchange views on the subject of freights, but beyond this interchange nothing of interest was done. No changes were made in tariffs, and no business in which the public is interested, was transacted. F,rom the Asheviile Citizen: The "beautiful snow" has disap peared from our midst, and in its stead we are now having a warm rain. The snow remained on the ground quite ' wee a.

But we thought the latter individual was aspiring to be sacrificed upou his ' country's altar in connection with the Vice-Presidency ! Outrage by United States in arehale. About a year ago two or perhaps more negrose were ejected from the ladies' coach of a train on the Air Line Railroad, near Spartanburg, S. C. These negroes were ejected by the passengers, while the conductor, Capt. D. P. Chandler, was in another car. The conductor, however, was arrested by the United States authorities for a violation of the Civd Rights Bill, and about six months ago had his trial before Judgd Bond, in Columbia. Notwithstanding the bitterly partizan character of the Judge and jury, he was acquitted aud discharged and it was supposed that this was the end of the matter. But not so. When the Air Line train wtich an ived here yester day morning, reached Greei.vi 1.-, 8 C, on Thursday night, from the South. Capt Ch tidier ws eiz d t y two United Stat-s Marsha s. who told him that they nad a - war rant for him, and were going to take him to Charleston. Col. Peck, tho Master of Transportation, was on the train, and offered them any kind of security if they would release the conductor and allow him to bring hi? train on to Charlotte; but the officers obstinately refused, sayiug that they had come after him aud intended to take him. The prisoner asked to be allowed to go into his car to exchange his conductor's cap for a hat, and to get some clotbes.and even this poor re quest was denied. A colored train hand, who, it was charged, was equally guilty with the conductor in the eject ment of the negroes from the train, was also arrested, and when he asked to be allowed to change his greasy clothes for better ones which he had on the train, had a pistol drawn on him by one of the puppets, and was told to shut his mouth. Notwithstanding the representations of CoL Peck, that if Capt. Chandler was only allowed to run his train through to Charlotte, he should at once board the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta train and go to Charleston, and the further representation that hey were delaying an United States mail train, these miserable minions, "drest in a little brief authority," led their unresisting prisoners away, with curses and taunts, and the baggage master, Mr. J. T. LeGrand, brought the train on to Charlotte. It is not known by what stretch of authority this " conductor and train hand are re-arrested for an offence for which they have once been tried and acquitted, and the passengers and all others who bore witness to this out rage, are justly indignant. Charlotte Observer. So far from Mr. Chandler having paid back the $2,500, as required by Judge nudges, there is Republican authority for stating that he is draw ing about $9,500 for himself and his children from the government.
