The Value of Oak Bark.
I visited several of the most promi.

of this city to learn the commeroial
value and importance of our Suthern
Black Oak Bark as a Dye Stuff, and
also the best manner of preparing it
for market. We found, on enquiry
that Southern Black Oak Bark makes
one of the most useful and important
Dye Stuffs in use, for giving the
ground colors to the finest and most
costly fabrics made in colors in Euro
pean print works. The most expen
sive colors are produced from flarirn.

black oak bark of the South. This

I learned from Messrs. Johnson &
Bone, of Astoria, Long Island, who1
manufacture the fiarim, as well as the
*applianoes for making it, (whose works
we visited), that one ton of ground
quer citron bark will yield one hun
d red and fifty pounds of fiarim, which
commands a ready sale at one dollar
per pound. We also learned from
those gentlemen, an we did from the
Druggiste generally In the city, that a

The editor of the Washington Star
writing from Salt Lake City, undei
date of July 20, says :
We had some curiosity to ascertair
how the Mormons stood on the negrc
question, and the following was th<
result of the inquiries propounded :

you will wait a moment, I will relate
a little incident,'showing our modo of
dealing with the Indians. When our
band of 143 pioneers came out to lo
cate a place here for settlement, when
we came to the Pawnee conntry, thro'
which the immigrant travel passed,
the Indians undertook to levy tribute
upon us, according to their practice
among emigrants. We had but lit

could spare. The Indians were dis.
satisfied and demanded more. No
word was spoken, but the signal was
given to each captain, and in a me.

mont. That has been our policy over
since in dealing with the Indians ; to
treat them kindly, but to dictate to
them instead of being dictated to by
them, and to let them know that we
think a little better of ourselves than
we do of them."
The vima with which Brigham gave
utterance to the views of the Indian
question, and his rantankerous ex
pression of countenance at the same
time, indicated that lie is a good deal
of a muscular Christian, and has no
faith in Quaker commissioners.
CHINEsE IMMsGRATION.-An emi'
grant from E~urope is, to our idea,
far more desirable than an emigrant
from Asia. Indeed, in this Chinese
movement, under the present state of
public opinion in regard to the equali.

A Washington letter, of Tuesday,
to the B.ltimore Gazette, says:
Although it was very o lear from
the start that the Conservatives in the
unreconstructed States (if they really
placed any reliance upon the assur
anoes of the President) were doomed
to bitter disappointment, still the
Democratic newspapers north of the
Potomac very generally refrained from
expresbing a word of discouragement
after it had become evident that a vast
majority of the people. of that unfor..
tunate section of the country had do.
termined upon the desperate experi
ment of trusting to Punic honor. Nor
have the ill-natured fings of such
newspapers as the Richinond Whig,
oven after it had beil made manifest
that Grant had deceived those who
had confided In him, been sufficient to
induce the real frieud of the South
to remind that people that Il1 told

by any of his assurances. The chief
reason why I desire the return of ex
President . Johnson to the Senate Is,
that this significant chapter in our
national history may be ventilated
officially and in detail, If not in the
emphatic language in which it was re
lated to me. I can, however, vouch
for an illustrative incident, not tet
down in the bills of confidential reve
lations. I saw with my own eyes this

one in this vast assembly, gave more
decided nods of approbation to the

general of all the armies of the Uni

not, or he may, know (but whether or
not the fact can be proven by unques

The Virginia and other Southern
newspapers, who are in the habit of
copying the letters, and yet are sotte
times puzzled to see how it can be
known here to a bwurn enemy to the
administration what tho head of it
will do in a given contingency, may
herein have an inkling of the ground
of the suspicion which was at the first
entertained in respect to the final ao
tion of his Excellency after his cele
bratedlinterview with Messrs. Baldwin,
Stewart & Co.
A gentleman just here from Rich
mond, who is no fool, and being deep
ly and largely interested in telling the
truth in this matter, is no liar (al
though a Radical,) tells a plain story :
Grant has given Cnnby a carte
blanche; but this military upstart is
deficient in the higher regions of po
litical metaphysics. His panacea was
the simple rejection of the neembers
of the Legislature who "couldn't

Titus Oates did "The P-l-a-a-t I"
Well,' after all, it Is found that in the
blundering deception of the Presi
dent, he, too, was grossly at fault. By
the utmost stretch of military power
the two objects aimed at cannot be
aconplIahed-namely, the "recon
att-notion" of the State upon Radical
principles, and the usurpation of all

riondish Outrage Near Macon, Ga.
We learn, says the Macon Journal
and Afessenger, of the 17th inst., from
a gentleman who is engaged in laying
out the railroad track on the new
Brunswick Road, that on Thursday
last two respectable young girls re
aiding near Station 14, upoi the den
tral Road, were on their way home
from school, when they were overtak
en by two stout negroes, who imme
diately seized them, and despite their
screams for aid committed a diaboli
cal 'outrage. Having effected this
brutal deed of violence, one of the
negroes, who had but one arm, shook
the mutilated stump of the other in
the face of the eldest of the two
girls, and exclaimed,. "I wants re
venge, and I intend to have it. When
I belonged to your father I ran away;
be followed me to the woods and shot
me, and I have to lose this arm, do
you see it? Now I'm bound to get
even with him," and drawing his
pocket knife he severed the arm en
tirely from her body, between the
wrist and elbow joint. The two seoun
arels then broke away and ran for the
woods. Very fortunately the girls
had presence of mind enough to tie
the mutilated arm tightly above the
elbow until medical aid coul1 be pro.
3ured, and it is barely possible that
the young sufferer's life may be spared.
The news of the deed of violence
ran like wildfire all through the neigh.
borhood, and in a short time a mount
Dd patrol was organized, who volun
teered to go in pursuit of the scoun
Irels. They soon found one of them
whom they questioned right sharply,
but somehow or other the negro got
lost somewhere in the swamp, and the
party returned home without him.
The other, and by far the worst of
the two, succeeded in escaping from
that neighborhood and made his way
toward %Iacon. We are informed that I

with a brilliant reception. He was

that brotherly love and fraternal feel

in Tennessee. He thought the cir

PRSIDENT GRANT.-From Grant
nobody expects any thing, and, as a
blockhead was never yet known to
choose wise counsellors, so nobody
expects any thing from the wretched
creatures that he bas gathered about
him. His Governmet seems permis
sive to all his creatures. He suffers
such a military despot as Oanby to
legislate for Virginia, in a matter of
something more than life and death i
a matter, which, by his treatnent-of
it, makes his exclamation, "Let us
have peace," the molt miserable, or
the most satirical mockery.
The usurpative tenor of Canby's
proceedings towards Virginia inaugu
rates the course which will doubtless
be taken with regard to Mississippi
and Texas. In other words, failing to
carry these States for Radicalism, the
action of the several peoples thereof
is to be repudiated, and this repudia
tion of the people is to be the work of
a military despot. It is not even
thought worth while to submit it to
Congress, possibly in order to relieve
that body of the odium in the busi
Here then is a new revolution to be
inaugurated, the issue of which is to
decide whether there shall be a Gov
ernment of the people, whether there
shall be a recognized people at all, or
whether we are doomed to pass,, by
natural transition, under the donina
tion of a licentious, brutal and vicious
soldiery, whose natural progress and
action recognizes usually no law, save
that of "force."
The stolid indifference with which
the people everywhere seem to regaid1
this progress towards military despo
tism, connected with the general bui- 1
ness of the social moral, would show
them prepared for it, would show them
willing to-surrender all of civil free
dom that was held so sacred but thir
ty years ago. Usurpation after usur
pation, tamely pernitted and even
welcomed, has completely underminedI
their love of liberty, and has prepared
them for the last of changes whichI
attend the downfall -of a nation.
The course of proceedings towards
Virginia, and doubtless, of the other I
Southern States, simply widens the
breach between the two sections, and
the gulf thus opened, can hardly be

GENERAL CANnY AND THE VInGINIA
LEGhLATUIr1. -WVY GENERAL GRANT
IS S]LENT.-The Walker anti-radioal
party of Virginia, in the late election
in that State, secured a large majority
of the members of both houses of the
Legislature, whereby this party have
been counting upon two United States
Senators. It appears, however, that
after deducting the Walker members
of the Legislature who cannot take
the iron-clad oath of loyalty the
Wells radicals will have a majority in
both houses. It further appears that
General Canby, military commander
of Virginia as the First Southern
Military District, In the exercise1
of his judgment has determined
to enforce the iron clad oath,
and that where the legislative mom
ber elect cannot meet this oath
tihe Commanding General intends
to recognize his loyal competitor
(radical) as duly elected. Ifnder this
process two radical United States Sen.
ators will be secured.
Now, comparing this course of
General (lanby in Virginia with his
policy in South Carolina, it would ap
pear that sauce for the goose is niot
sauce for the gander. Naturally
enough the Virglinia'Walker party are
lneensed against General Canby. We
understand that they have applied to
General Grant to reverse this military
ruling of the district eetsmander, but
that so far the President has declined
to Interfere. But if he should inter
fere and order 'the recognition of the
Walker members of the Logislature,
what would follow? The election of
two Walker liberals to the national
Senate. But what then ? The nation
al Senate (radicat), which is the final
judge of the elections and qualifica

upon the iron-clad oath, would doubt
