GRANT ANJO THE O OLD RING. A Pleasant Assurance from the Presi? dent of thc Republic. Mr. Robert Bonnor, of New York, recently wrote to General Grant asking him to make a '.brief denial over his<*wn signature of all fore? knowledge of thc gold combination, in onler to relieve himself entirely from all responsi? bility for thc acts of others." Mr. Bonner added that those who know General Grant personally required no disclaimer; bat thc public, whose minds were liable to be warped by the determined and persistent efforts to Injure him, would be at once sat ?siled and quieted by such a statement. The President replied In the following letter: WA. .INOTON, D. C.. October 13. Robert Ronner, Es'?: DEAR SIR-Your favor of tho 11th instant ls received. I have never thought of contradict? ing statements or insinuations made against me by irresponsible parties, as those.as alluded to in your letter; but as you have written to rae on the subject, in so kind a spirit, L, will say that I had no more to do with the latOgold excitement in New York City than yourself, or any other Innocent party, except that I ordered the sale of gold to break the ring en? gaged, as I thoueht, in a most disreputable transaction. If the speculators had been suc? cessful you would never have heard of any one connected with the administration as being connected with thc transaction. Yours, truly, U. S. GRANT. P. S.-I have written this in great haste, and without exercising judgment as to the nro priety of writing it, but I submit lt to your judgment. U. S. G. -Dr. A. W. Hall, in a lecture last week be? fore the Polytechnic branch of the American Institute, on the cause of auroral lights, took issue with Professor Loomis and other scient? ists who attribute these phenomena to electri? cal action. Dr. Hall's theory ls that the boreal display is produced by the rays of the sun, which are reflected from clouds surrounding the pole to the ice and snow of the Arct.c re? gions, and thence again reflected to the clouds, and so back and forth until it comes within our range of vision. The glancing and flashing of the columns of light, he nolds, are caused by the motion of the clouds, an exact correspondence being traceable, the Doctor contends, between the movements of the light and those of the clouds. In confirmation of Iiis llieory the speaker cited the cases of similar displays of auroral light in the east just before sunrise, and in the west just after sunset, when there are banks of clouds visible from which the 6un's rays are evidently reflect! fl. The arches or bows often seen in the north are also easily explained according to this hypothesis, while by the electrical theory they are inexplicable. The deflection of the needle and other mag? netic effects, sometimes observed during an auroral display, are attributed by Dr. Hall to the fact that the state of the atmosphere most favorable for these successive reflections of sunlight from the pole ls also favorable for the action of the electrical forces which produce the magnetic disturbances. -The procession at Louisville on Thursday last in honor of the convention was on a more extensive scale than any ever before witnessed in Louisville, if not in the West. All the va? rious branches of mercantile and manufacturing trades of the city were represented. It is es? timated that the expense incurred by this graud display was not less than $75,000. There were 1280 horses and about 500 wagons lu the procession. It was lu motion two hours, and passed over a distance of six or seven miles. The only parade of the sort at all comparable to it was that in honor ol' General Harrison at Dayton, Ohio, in the memorable year 1840; even that great political outpouring was in? ferior in all respects to the vast display In Louisville. Prominent in the linc was what is said to have been the largest and the finest ombibus in the world, furnished by the Louis? ville Transfer Company, and drawn by ten horses, each steed accompanied bv a colored footman, iu Turkish costume. On the top of the omnibus was a temple of liberty, within which sat Miss Mary Glass, attired as the God? dess of Liberty. She was supported on either side by lads representing the ?univ and navy. Within the omnibus were over lotty young misses, all dressed in white, with wreaths of lresh flowers aud badges bearing the mums o:' the States and Territories. THE YERGER CASE. Thc Principle? In vol vc d-Thc C Threatened-What President Grai Told will be his Duty in a Cer Contingency. [FROM AN OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT. WASHINGTON, October The leading topic of interest in the capita now is the case ex parte Yergcr, which has been argued before thc Supreme Court-a familiar to the people of the South, and tc whole country, inasmuch as it involves thc p of the Federal Government to authorize, cv< law, the trial of a civilian by military con sion In time of peace, and in a State and d? where civil courts are open. It is unnecessary to go into the details of case. Suffice it to say that Mr. Verger was by a military commission at Jackson, MLssls.? for an offence against the laws of that i found guilty, ant) sentenced to suffer death, counsel, however, brought the case before Chief Justice of thc United States, on a mot io; a luabeas corpus, several months ago, whet stipulation between them and the Attorney-G ral or the United States, it was agreed thai motion should be argued at the present ter the court, and in the meantime the sentenct posed by the military commission should be pended. Mr. Verger, however, ls still in prl and his case Is upou the docket or thc highes dicta] tribunal in the country, where the po wi the law-making department or the governn to authorize thc trial of civilians tn any other than that pointed out by the constitution, is t finally, and, 1 hope, forever determined. It will be remembered that the power cia! in this Instance ls found In i.neormoreol numerous "Reconstruction"' acts, so-cal which have been passed by Congress since close of the war, and as those acts rest upon assumed authority on the part of the Fed Government, to render the civil power lu South subordinate and inferior to 'tie minti the opinion of the court in this case will be of most vital Importance in Judicially detennin so great a question. If it shall he adjudged that Congress ha; power to establish military government and n tary law, in any State or States or thc Union, time or peace, thc bottom will be knocked ou the "reconstruction"" tub; and sooner or la every act of that body, relating to thc govt ment of the Southern States, will share the sa fate, and The c'ountry will again be restorer Its former system of free government, sustali and strengthened by a constitaglonal recognlt of the reserved rights of the several States. It requires no argument to show the Illegal and unconstitutionality or the trial or cl villi by military tribunals in places where civil con are open. The Constitution of the United Sta is so clear and explicit on this subject, thal hew would attempt to controvert it must either be down as a knave or a fool. It may, however, be intere&ting to your reade in forming an opinion as to the probable result the case referred to above, to mention a Bimi and a very' celebrated case which ls still fresh the minds of the people, and which, on accot of the great principle Involved, may with tn be styled the most important case ever det mined by thc Supreme Court of the United Stat LamlMlin I*. Milligan, a citizen of thc Unit States, and a resideut and citizen of the State Indiana, was arrested on the 3d day of Octob 1864, at his home in said State, by order of l?rei Major-General Hovey. military commander of t District of Indiana, and by the same anthon confined in a military prison at or near Indiai polls, the capital of thc State. On the 21st d of the same month, he was placed on trial befe a "military commission" convened at ludianai lis, by order of the said general, upon the folio lng charges preferred by Major liurnett. Jud Advocate of the Northwestern Military Hepa; meut, namely: 1. Conspiracy against thc Government of tl United States. .2. Affording aid and comfort to Hie relit against Hie authority of the United States. 3. Inciting Insurrection. 4. Disloyal practices/hnd, 5. Violation or Ute laws of war. Without reciting thc details of this trial, lt sufficient to say that Milligan was found guili on all thc" charges, and sentenced to suffer dent by hanging, and this sentence having been ai proved, he was ordered to be executed on Frida; the 19th or May, 1800. On Hie lath of that same May, 1865, Milliga Hied his petition for a habr?s corpus In the Cf cult Court of thc United States for the Distrk of Indiana. After setting forth the facts cot nected with his arrest and trial by "militar commission," thc findings, sentence, approvt thereof, 4c, he then set forth the additional fat that while he was held and detained, as airead mentioned, in military custody, (and more Uta twenty days after his arrest,) a grand Jory fo the Circuit Court of the United States fur th District of Indiana, was convened nt Indianapc Us, his said place of confinement, and duly em fianelled, charged and sworn for said district held its sittings, and finally adjourned wiihou having found any bill of Indictment, or made an; presentment whatever against him; that at n time had he been in the military service of th Unite* States, orin anyway connected with th land, or naval force, or the militia In actual ser vice, Ac At the hearing of the petition in the Circu? Court the opinions or the Judges were divided ot thc following questions, namely: I. " On thc facts stated lu thc petition anc\ ex hibits ought thc writ of habeas corpus to bc ls sued according to the prayer of said petitioner?" II. " On the facts stated in the petition ami ex hibits ought the said Milligan to be discharge! from custody, as in said petitiou prayed?" III. " Whether upon the facts stated In thc pe titlon and exhibits thc military commission hat Jurisdiction, legally, to try and sentence said Mil ligan in manner and form as lu said petition am exhibit ls stated V On the division of opinion mentioned above these questions were certilled to the Supreme Court of the United States aud argued at the De? cember term, 1S65. The opinion of the Conn thereon was delivered the following term, ami may bc fountl In 4th Wallace, commencing ai page 107. The opinion ls a very elaborate and exhaustive one, reviewing the whole case, and emphatically declaring that Congress has no power to author? ize the trial of civilians by military commissions in places where civil tribunals are open, and where they might be regularly and fairly tried according to the constitution anti laws of the United States and of thc State wherein the al? leged offence was committed. In proceeding, thc court said: "Every trial involves the exercise of judicial power; and fruin what source did the military commission that tried him (Milligan) derive their authority? Certainly no part or the judicial power of the country was conferred on them, because thc constitution expressly vests it 'in one Supreme Court and such inferior courts as Congress may from time to time ordain and establish;' and it is not pretend? ed that the commission was a court ordained and established by Congress. They cannot justify on the mandate of the President, because he ls con? trolled hy law, and has his appropriate sphere of duty, which is to execute, not to make, the laws; and there is nc unwritten criminal code to which resort can be had as a source of jurisdiction." Again: "Martial rule can never exist where the courts are open and in the proper und unobstructed ex? ercise of their jurisdiction.'' "So sensitive were our Revolutionary fathers on this subject, although P.oston was almost in a state of siege, when General Gage issued his proc? lamation of martial law, they spoke or it as un 'attempt to supercede the course or the common law, and Instead thereor to publish ami order the use of martial law."' What th* court said of martial law, established by order of the President or of a military com? mander, is equally applicable in Hie case of Ver ger. lt is to bc noted that the recent discussion of thc case was confined, by order Of the Judges, lo the quefctio:i of jurisdiction. Should this mat .er be decided favorably for the petitioner, the next question to come up will be on the merits, which must necessarily involve the validity of the Reconstruction acts, partially at least. With the very' organization of the court at the mercy of Congress, there ls a well-grounded fear perhaps that the case will be disposed of upon some tech? nical point. The executive and legislative branches of the government being in manifest and unchecked conspiracy against the vital prin? ciples or the constitution, it would perhaps be ex? pecting too much, in the opinion of some, to con? clude that the other utterly powerless branch would enter Into a contest which would probably end In Its own "reconstructI*n," according to cur? rent Radical usurpations. Yet there are signs In? dicating that a majority of that august tribunal will do their full duty, irrespective of Its personal bearing. In apprehension that the writ will not only be granted, but the petitioner tnrned over to the courts upon grounds touching the powers of Congress, Forney's Chronicle, thc recognized organ of the administration here, thus threat? ens : "If, asys now apprehended, the majority of the judges should assume, in granting this writ, to declare the acta of reconstruction unconstitution? al, a grave duty will devolve upon the Executive." The same paper has heretofore declared it. to be not only the "duty," but one 'that rei ll be clwrrfully performed by the President. lu other words, If the court shall decide, (what lt has ul. ready. In fact, decided in the Milligan case,) that a military upstart and his shabb/^taff cannot, lu this country, string up or shoot down at random citizens, guilty or not guilty, % thc midst of a peaceful people amenable to civil legal courts confessedly open, and Where justice, according to the constitution and laws of thc United States, can bc and constantly is administered, and shall further order tiiat the present culprit shall be turned over to the proper legal tribunal for trial, that in that case his Excellency will Issue military orders to lils military satrap, that the mandate of the court shall be contemptuously disobeyetl. The Radicals have been guilty of many abomina? tions, bat have never yet essayed so glaring and impudent un assumption as this.

Henry Suber and Richard Simpson-escaped lrom the Jail In this place by sawing one of the Iron bars in two. and lot? ting themselves down by means of their blank? ets. The first three had been sentenced to Im? prisonment in the penitentiary; the last was awaiting trial, charged with larceny." Fatal Affray. The Laurensville Herald says: "A homicide was committed on last Saturday night in the neighborhood of Waterloo. It seems that Chas. King, Jr., wits returning from this place to his house, when he met with Thomas Patterson. Words were exchanged which led to an affray, in which King was killed. The Unding of the lurv of Inquest is, that King came to his death ov means of a rock in the bauds of Patterson. There was un old feud between the two. Pat? terson is still at large." Another Radical Outrage. The Augusta Constitutionalist says: "Our readers remember the killing of A. G. Ruffin, the Radical sheriff of this county, at the last State election, and that the perpetrator of the deed was unknown. Governor Bullock offer? ed a large reward for the arrest of the alleged murderer, but without securing his dis? covery. Yesterday, a couple of tools ol' Constable Hubbard, of South Carolina, ar? rested a quiet, peaceable citizen of Ham? burg, S. C., Mr. Robert Cunningham, on the charge of killing Ruffin ! The arrest was made ut the instance of Hubbard, who mad-.' affidavit to the effect that upon infor? mation received, he had reason to believe Cun? ningham committed the murder. The pimps of Hubbard, who made the arrest, went iuto Cunningham's store on Thursday, In a friendly way. Liking drinks there, and stating that the? would call again yesterday morning, which they did, arresting* Mr. Cunningham, placing hin? in irons, and taking him to Columbia. Thus has an Irresponsible, illegal, allen official assumed the right to deprive an inoffensive citizen of his liberties, for an offence of which everybody knows he ls not guilty, which was not committed In South Carolina, and when no affidavit was made from the place where the killing took place, and no requisition sent from tills State to the so-called Governor of'South Carolina."

It is en? tirely gray, except where it is snow-white. In? deed, the lady looks older than her mother. She talks energetically, clearly, and rather di? dactically, bul is extremely pleasant. Harry showed lier his pistol, and she said: lOh yes, I know, I carry one just like it,' and she pulled lt out of her pocket to show lt to us. As lt waa loaded, it frightened the family consider? ably to see lier manouver it In her off-hand way. After dinner she smoked her cigar like the other gentiemen of the party." -Americans who have visited the Cathe? dral of Notre Dame, at Paris, during thc Sun? day morning services, will recall the rather peculiar appearance of the "man in the serge gown," who, with a voice as remarkable as his person, bronglo, the people assembled lrom all parts of the capital to hear him. Above the middle height, broad-shouldered, with a stoop in the back as if he had some? thing concealed there beneath his clerical robes; a short, thick neck, that brings down his chin almost upon a level with his breast, giving him a mutlled look; a wide mouth, dominated by ai>?qui!ine nose, which, if size bo an indication of genius, must make this man a prodigy; clear, bright eyes, set well apart toward the temples; a broad massive forehead, retreating on each side with a won? derful development of the perceptive faculties; thin, brownish hair, never very carefully cared for, and generally suffered to take its own way, and shining from every part of this remarkable physiognomy, a spirit of deepest humility more marked from the look of reso lulion accompanying lt, serve to make up the fc>i(.' ensemble of the Pere Hyacinthe. i-rmcral Notices. ?Sr-TUE RELATIVES, FRIENDS AND acquaintances of Miss ELIZA SHERFESEE, Mr. L.

During that long interval HOSTET TER'S STOMACH BITTERS may be truly said to have enjoyed unrivalled popularity. Many prep? arations have been got up to compete with ll, but they have all fallen Into Its wake or sunk Into oblivion for lack or patronage. From the first, this now world-rcnownod Vegetable Tonic has been both medically and financially success? ful. Every year has added to the number of Its friends, and the demand tor it, based solely upon thc experimental proofs of Its excellence as a pre? ventive and curative, seems to have no assign? able limit. Thc medical profession sanction and approve its use, and lt ls now at the head of the class of medicines to which lt belongs, the ad? mitted, undisputed sovereign tonic of the age. The statistics of the United States Revenue De? partment will verify thc statement that it stands alone and unapproached In thc magnitude of its sales as compared with those of any otner pro? prietary remedy advertised on this side of the At? lantic. The explanation of this fact may be comprised In a few words. HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT? TERS ls at once the purest, the safest and the most potent of all vegetable tonics, and the best antidote to every variety of malarious disease. Hence lt ls especially adapted to the present sea? son of chilling dews and unwholesome vapors. OCtlS 6D*C Special Notices. &S3- NOTICE.-THE TIME FOR HAND?
