TNTER?.STISG VISIT OF THE ENGLISH CA PITAIiTTS TO THE PRESIDENT. WASHINGTON, October 17.-The En? glish capitalists arrived this morning, in a special traia^ over the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. At ll o'clock, the party, accompanied by Hon. Ro? bert J. Walker, visited the Executive Mansion, and were presented to the President by Mr. Walker. The President greeted each one sepa- j, and the interview soon be? ean most pleasant and social one. Mr. Johnson, in conversation with Sir Morton Peto, Member of Parlia? ment, gave his views on the immense resources of this country, and the ad? vantages which they presented to capi? talists everywhere- His" allusion to Tennessee attracted.the attention of the entire party. He dwell, elabo? rately upon the great natural attrac? tions for capital and enterprise which every portion of that State, presents. The President gave them some im? portant information in that respect. He then alluded to the general con? dition of the country, and the pros? pect of the thorough and early resto? ration of the Union, and the successful workings of the civil powers so soon on the heels -of ti gigantic conflict. He adverted to the rapid spirits of enterprise and improvement abroad, and through the land, and to the har? monious relations exiting between this and the mother country. The delegation were very much im? pressed with the President's conver? sational powers, and gratified- at the informal democratic interview they received. In conversation they ex? pressed themselves in approval of his policy as leading to permanent peace through the perpetuation of the Union. The delegation left for Bal? timore t >nigh, . after having "visited the objects of interest about the city. To-morrow they make a trip over the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, in spe? cial train, to Harper's Ferry, Mono oacy and Martinsburg, visiting at the same time some of the battle-fields in tho 'vicinity of those places. THU COTTON ROBBERIES IN THE SOUTH. Information continues to be received here of frauds and injustice connected with the seizure of cotton in the South? ern States. Much of that> article has been confiscated, on the ground that it wa? Confederate property, as distin? guished from that of individuals, whether they were or wore not volun? tarily engaged in the rebellion. The only remedy for those aggrieved, pro? vided they were'loyal citizens, is be? fore the United States Court of ('hums, which will be crowded with cases of this kind. Tho administration is seeking to prevent further spoliations, and it is not improbable that some plan will soon bo officially promul? gated as a remedy. THE STATI S OF KENTUCKY. Tho. withdrawal of martial law from Kentucky leaves her in'cxaeth |lio Hame, condition as other designated loyal Stab s. Tho suspension of the ? writ ot' Imbeles corpus still applies to all ot them in eases arising out of the anny and navy, as to deserters, spies, and other, classes of offenders. NO ACTION IN THE CASE OF i ?EN. PALMER. No definite action Juts yet boon taken in relation to the application for the removal of General Palmer. THE SOUTH TO BE SOON FREED FROM WTT.TTA-RV RULE. It has been determined to withdraw th*' colored troops from Kentucky. Troops, of whatever character, will also be withdrawn from ?di the South? ern States, with the exception of the few which may be required for fortifi? cations, as soon as tlu-public safety will admit, or immediately after tho restoration of civil government. CNAUTHORIZED PROPERTY SEIZURES IN TUE SOUTH. It has come to th??uiowledgeof the authorities that persons wno had taken no voluntary part in. the rebel? lion have had their .property seized by officers who supposed that the be? ing worth over twenty thousand do] lars was of itself a sufficient ground for the proceeding. It does not seem to bc generally understood that the exceptional clauses in the President's proclamation applies only to certain clu ses of offenders, who are required to make special application for par? don. All, saving the excepted classes, can without difficulty obtain the bene? fit of the amnesty. Owing to the prevalent ignorance concerning this fact, the purchase and sale of real and mixed property are prevented, in apprehension of litigation. In cases where parties receive pardon, they have "restoration of all rights of property, except as to slaves, and ex? cept in cases where legal proceedings under the laws of the United States providing for the confiscation of pro? perty of persons engaged in rebellion have been instituted, according to the terms of the proclamation of fte 20th of May last.-Cor. New York World. BitOWNXOW AKT) THU COLOKEH SOL? DIERS.-JParson Brownlow, it secms, has been in collision with soldiers rt the colored persuasion, and don't like it. The following is a description of the affair, from the Governor's own pen : One-half of all the colored soldiers in uniforms in East Tennessee have no respect for that uniform, and do not appreciate its dignity and impoi tance. Two of them in full uniform some time since, upon a narrow side? walk in this city, knocked the writer of this article into the gutter, throw? ing him upon his hands and knees. He was trying to get out #of the way, and" they saw it, but being feeble, and leaning upon a staff, lie moved too slowly for thqir ideas of progress. I made no complaint, but concluded that tftese colored ruffians ha?1 r >t "learned to respect the uniforr o? inc army," and v ent my way -no; rejoic? ing- but feeling in ti' nee that I w as worsted in the enc ,iter, which I-hod not brought ab< mt sought to prevent. K-ldier. und officers wearing the Feuc-alumf rmougb'' .ii to be gentlem. ii, no matter what their color, but t1. only wo col veil sol? diers I ever tered did not prove to be of th- . snipe. I have no wish to try thor'. gain-I migl alight upon others less refined, who would run me through with a bayonet. Being de? nied a white man's choice, I only ask a negro's privilege of getting out of the way.-Nullo tull Intelligencer. , AN IMPORTANT OKDER RELATIVE TO ARTILLERY AND CAVALRY REGIMENTS. A general order, dated October ii, and issued by "Lieut. Gen.' Grant, announces an important -distribution of troops, both regular and volunteer. All volunteer cavalry East of the Mis? sissippi River will be at once mus? tered out of service. All sea-coast forts South of Forts Monroe, except Forts Taylor a?id Jefferson, Florida, will be garrisoned by colored troops. The. requisite number of regiments I having been selected for this purpose, all other colored troops will be mus? tered out of service. The 3d Regular Artillery will garrison the forts of Maine, New Hampshire and Massa? chusetts. The 1st Regular Artillery ' will be stationed in New York harbor, j The 4th Regular Artillery at Forts j McHenry, Delaware, Washington and Foote. The 5th at loris Monroe. I Taylor und Jefferson. The."Jd Lfegu I lar Artillery is assigned to the Pacific j coast. Slie 2d Cavalry is ordered to j report to < len. Sherman, and the 6th ! Regular Cavalry is ordered to Gen. j Sheridan's command. The 4th Regi? ment of Regular Infantry is assigned to duty on the Canadian frontier. Only two companies of thc -fih Artil I lory are assigned to Fort McHenry, i two to Fort Delaware, one to li?-t Washington, and one to Fort. Foot.-. The bark Anderson, from Mobile, arrived at Now York on the20th, willi one passenger und three of the crew of the steamship Atlanta, which was wrecked on the 15th, on her passage from New Orleans to New York. Tho i remainder of her crew aud passengers j are supposed to have perishe d THE LOUISIANA DEMOCRATIC CON? VENTION.-The Mobile Tribune has a letter, dat?d ?^ew Orleans, the 5tli, giving* a detailed account of the Democratic Convention held in that city. The writer says the platform adopted was the 1 Lgh-toned, nanly Southern doctrine of State rights, repudiating the bogus Constitution of 1802, and maintaining the right of petition for compensation for the loss of slaves. The utmost hwmony pre? vailed until the adjournment sine die took place at the close of the Conven? tion. Mr. Overall, a member of the Committee on the Platform, intro? duced a resolution requesting Presi? dent Johnson to release Jeff. Davis and restore him to citizenship. Mr. Overall commenced speaking from his place on the door of the hall, but the Convention soon got wind of his object, and crios, "Get on the platform," "We can't hear you," were shouted over the house. Mounting the platform, the speaker continued his speech, amid tl. mdering applause. The members rose from their seats and came forward. The wildest ex ci' >ent was apparent, anJ the pre a. ible and resolutions were passed with thundering unaniniit$\ i . ager was tly3 Convention to pass the reso? lution that it would not listen toa few remarks from agentleman who arose to second the me?sure, and so good words for Mr. Davis closed, the pro? ceedings of one of the finest bodies of men I have ever seen assembled in convention. THE COTTON MARKET. -The ruling spirit of the commercial world seems to have regained the ascendancy, and liverpool and Manchester, the aris? tocratic and potent, have at last ad? mitted the fact. A re*. > our latest advices repress dvanee in that in dispensaoi .... nd, for our part, we cannot soo ho., .nj- man of any commercial knowledge could have ex? pected otherwise. ?The stubborn per? manency of prices lu retofore has been caused bv"*he supposition* that there was a I- ... ..mut bf cotton in Sont1 talcs. The English mer? chant a: . tlmir agents have discov red ae fact that the estimates have been sadly erroneous, and that Eng? lish laborers in cotton mills may re? peat thefriots of a year past, making the news of a steamer present the Lamp of Aladdin, or else the ghost of a Banquo, and they are preparing against the charge, saying thou canst not say I did it to the turned off and perishing laborer. ' The coming crop has already had its fate decided, and we regret that much suffering must ensue from the ! necessity of those employed in its j fabrication, and to the consumer, whose wages per diem, it seems, will not be able to buy him one yard of the cloth of which daily he makes twenty-while present advices indi? cate a further advance, cotton jester- J i daj*, in New York, being 62 to 65 j cents. - Memphis Bulletin, i The Cincinnati Times says, from | reliable information from various sec- j I tions of the State, it has been ascer I fained that the growing crop of to- ? ; bacco will be far loss than that of last. ' j year, both in quality and quantity. | i In the moro Southern portions of the ' ! State, and Tennessee, what is denomi? nated as O.irkesville leaf is equally i j short, the impression prevailing .that ; ! tho yield will not much exceed half | ? thc usual average. A letter from Todd j I County, Ky., from aa intelligent ob- 1 \ server, who is not a tobacco grower I or buyer, states as the results of his I investigation, thai?, ringer the most | ? favorable eircunistanci ?, a two-thirds ? crop, as compared with last year, will J ; not be grown this year in that whole I region. With late planting and the j hazards of carly frosts, that .estimate '. is * cry liable to fall shirt.
