GEN. LEE'S APPLICATION FOR PAR?
DON.-The Richmond Whig, referring
to the varions published statements
concerning Gen. Lee's application for
His application for pardon, if we
are not mistaken, had been prepared,
and was about to be transmitted to
Washington, when a super-serviceable
Judge, holding'a Federal Court at
Norfolk, caused an indictment to be
found against him, with a number of
other distinguished gentlemen, for
treason. Thereupon Gen. Lee, in?
stead of f?rwa^fing his application to
Washington,- enclosed it to General
Grant, with a note calling Iiis atten?
tion to what had been done at Nor?
folk, and remarking that, if according
to his (Gen. Grant's) understanding
of the articles of capitulation, h? (Gen.
Lee) was liable to indictment a*nd
prosecution for treason, then he did
not feel at liberty to make th? appli?
cation fonpardon. But if Cxon-'Grant.'s
understanding w:is the re?rse, then
Gen. Lee would be obliged to him if he
would forward the petition to the'
President, Gen. Grant, if we have
not boen misinformed, responded to
GerrjwLee'%note promptly, und in the
most* complimentary and friendly
terms, enelo^ng a letter he had ad?
dressed to Washington in forwarding
the petition, taking the ground that,
under the terms .of the surren?
der, t?fce proceeding at Norfolk was
whoUytfiKnadmissable. This, brought
to a sudden close thc plan of
Judge Underwood to make his-gunine
immortal by associating it with a
trial in which Robert E\ Lee oc?
cupied the prisoner's dock, and at
the same time brought Gen. Lee's
petition before the President in*the
mode most agreeable to himself and
most honorable to his successful an?
ANOTHER OUTRAGE.-We learn from
his son, the particulars of an outrage
upon Mr. Monroe, of the house of
Bulger, Hukill & Co. It seems that
about 8 'i> o'clock, last night, while on
his "v**?y hom*, when in the sandy
lane below the old depot of the Ala?
bama ?i?nd Florida Railroad,- two
guards stepped out from a thicket
and halted him. They demanded his
pass to ke but at that hour. Mr.
; . Monroe then called to his son, who
was in a buggy behind, to light a
. match that he might find the paper
demanded, when one of the guard
raised b%i gun to shoot Mr. Monroe's
son, but desisted at the instance of
Mr.* Munroe. His son was ordered
tofo on home, and Mr.'Monroe waf
taken into the thicket about 150
yards from the road, whau they tied
his hands behind him and robbed
him of his purse, containing about
twenty-five dollars. They further at?
tempted to shoot him, which he pre?
vented by throwing up the gun with
. one of his arms, by which the arm re?
ceived a severe . bruise. They ?lise
stuck a bayonet in* his forehead and
Shocking him senseless, left him foi
ead. Mr. Monroe, when he eanie
to, crawled as near as lie could to the
Stonewall Hospital, when Jie cri?e;
"mnreier," which brought some sol
die? from tho "Hospital,'' one o
whom being a Mason, ami recogniz
ing a Masonic pin in Mr. Monroe'!
shirt bosom, procured a hack and line
him carried to fi is home.

Some laelies in London have starte?
a periodical called the Attempt.
THE DEVIL- ON TOP.-Under this
heading,,yind in support of the state?
ment involved, a Northern paper
gives a list s of recent outrageous
crimes. We extract cjne^rom ? num
ber'bf tile same character, which cer?
tainly constitutes an important link
in the chain of proof. Under dote of
the 10th it says' " 9
Early Monday morning1, at day?
break, the hopse of Mrs. Sarah Ket
chum, a respectable widow lady living
at seve#y-seven West Fortieth street,
New York, was entered by ruffians,
who got into her bed-room, with the
uvoVefl purpose of oittraging her
daughter, a young^ladyo? remarkable
beauty, who slept ^?th her mother.
The daughter succeeded in escaping'
in nor night clothes, arid sought refuge
at a neighbor's, while the baffled
scoundrels seized the motlier, choked
her nearly to death, and committed
an atrocious outrage. Afterwards,
by threats of murder ' if she revealed
it, they so intimidated her that upon
the case coming np in coftrt she did
not testify. Her friends', however,
will endeavor to obtain a new trial, as
some-of the rogues are known.
Sandwich Island (?tes of August 16
give thirty as the total number of
whaling vessels known to have been
captured by the rebel pirate Shenan?
doah in the North Pacific and Arctic
Oceans up to the latest dates received,.
No later captures, however, than those
whose names we have already pulfe
fished, are reported. Of theHhirty;
