INGTON.-We select extracta from two ?cry reliable Washington correspon? dents, which indicate some serious movements in Washington: It is currently talked of among in? telligent men here, and believed, that the advent of Congress will be pre? ceded by the collection hereof 25,000 ".'volunteers," black and white, (part of the "Grand Army of the Repub? lic.") The purpose is to enforce the usurpations of that body of lawless men at the point of the bayonet The ridiculous charge of an intended ?meute on the part of the President, waa intended to cover this infamous design.- Washington Letter Baltimore Gazette. The radical leaders now here are boasting confidentially among their friends of the completeness of their pl..o foi uib ?URU1C J.hey t?ay vjren. Butler has already prepared a Joint resolution, dedaring that any officers against, whom articles of impeach? ment shall be preferred, shall be sus? pended from office during trial upon the oh argos preferred, immediately following the passing of this resolu? tion, articles of impeachment will be rushed through the House under a call for the previous question, ?nd Mr. Wade will be sworn into office as acting President of the United States. Your correspondent inquired of one of these gentlemen how they proposed securing to Mr. Wade tho Presidential chair after he had been sworn in at the capitol ? On that point he said there was some doubt, as General Grant had given them no assurances as to which of the two Presidents he would recognize; but in the event of a refusal on his part to espouse their cause, they had the militia of tho Northern States to fall back upon, as well as their own powerful organization, the Grand Army of the Republic, a large portion of which will be found in Washing? ton. I suggested that the success of the conservatives in the- fall elections would probably cause a change in their programme. He replied: "No; it will only necessitate the greater firmness and quicker action." He also remarked that it was believed Mr. Johnson would resist; but that the little power of resistance which had been left him by Congress would not be difficult to overcome. Such is the desperate programme of the re? volutionists, and I have a positive assurance from those who know, that it will be strictly carried out. - Wash? ington Cor. Boston Post, October 2. THE COMING TROUBLES.-There is serious apprehension that the radicals intend to seize the Government by force of arms npou the assembling of Congress. The letter of Speaker Colfax and an editorial i# the Chro? nicle of this morning, have created some alarm. Under the frivolous pretext that your State has an or? ganized militia force, a scheme has been devised to assemble at Wash? ington "Tho Grand Army of the Republic," a secret military organi? zation, and forcibly eject the Presi? dent and place Wade at the head of afFair* _ Washington Leiter ir. Balli? more Giiixen. A ' despatch from St. Louis states that the funeral pf General Price was an imposing affair. The hearse woe drawn by ?ix black horses, and is the same that iras used in celebrating the obsequies of President Lincoln. Four hundred ex-Con fed erato of? ficers and soldiers participated in the procession. A daughter-in-law of the General was buried at thc samo time. His life was insured for 810.000. The' remains were interred in Belle fontaine Cemetery. He leaves four sons and a daughter. ANOTHER REMARKABLE DISCOVERY. In our issue ot Saturday last, we al? luded briefly to the fact that Profes? sor Holme-}, of the College of Charles? ton, the farno , of whose labors is as wide spread in Europe as in America, had discovered in the post-pleiocene beds of St. Andrew's Parish, large col? lections of fossils and relics, such as the bones of extinct mastodon, me? gatherium, mylodon and taper; also of . the American deer, raccoon, beaver, &c, and hatchets of stone, arrow heads, and other articles, all of which conduced to the belief that a race of men and animals inhabited this continent at a period perhaps as remote as the Noachian flood. Un? fortunately, however, no traces of man, other than those we have men? tioned, had been, until yesterday, discovered; when, strange to relate, in a manner almost accidental, we might say, providential, Prof. Kerr, now State Geologist of North Carolina, who visited these beds at the invitation of Professor Holmes, found amongst deposits of a similar character to those already enumerated, the femur (thigh-bone) and tibia (shin-bone) of a man, the former being sixteen inches in length. These* interesting relics were brought to the city lost night by Professor Kerr, who was ac? companied in his explorations only by Dr. N. A. Pratt, the chemist, and presented to Professor Holmes, who kindly brought them to this office for our inspection. They are perfectly formed and in a partial state of petri? faction.-Charleston Courier. ELECTION FARCE IN LOUISIANA. An electoral farce was performed throughout Louisiana, yesterday, in accordance with instructions given by the hero of two rides, while he was still radical stage munager of the Fifth Military District. As a general thing, we do not object to farces, especially if they have telling points aud are I oroduotive onlv of harrnliwo ?r>erri ! ment. Such, however, was not the ?character of yesterday. It was a seirions, delusive, wicked farce; per [formed in defiance of public opinion and at the expense of the intelligent tax-payers of the State. The newly enfranchised Black Republicans and the red radicals of the "itching palm" had the affair- all to themselves, for the white men saw clearly enough how the political * blacklegs had j stocked the cards, and they deter? mined to have no band or part in so treacherous a game. When a majority of the tax-payers have been disfranchised by sectional and fanatical partisans-when the descendants of revolutionary fathers have been humiliated by the forced elevation of their former slaves above them-when, in the name of liberty, all the true principles of liberty and law have been violated-then, an electoral cheat, intended to serve as the sanction and consecration of such misdeeds, becomes not only a farce, but an absolute desecration of the highest and holiest privilege of citi? zenship.-Nero Orleans Time?. - + ? ? The oldest man in Alleghany Coun? ty, Md., doubtless, is Mr. Henry Lewis, living in Accident District. Mr. Lewis was born in Hanover, on the 22d of August, ?765, and is now 102 years of age. His father lived to the age of IOU years and six months, and his mother to the age of 109 years. He came to this country in 1822; he has never been siok a day in his life; has no gray hairs, except a few scattered through his beard, and performs a full day's work each day in clearing his farm, being still strong and hearty. To cap the climax, the old gentleman, on the 21st of lost Angust, just the day previous to bis 102d birth-day, took to himself his second wife, ibo happy bride being Mrs. Burkhart, aged fifty-five year*. Edward Cooper, of Tennessee, who was defeated for Congress in the late election held in that State, by a radical, is iu Washington, and is to be appointed a private Secretary to President Johnson. Colonel Cooper temporarily discharged the duties of private secretary last year, while awaiting admission to his seat in Congress, bat will now occupy the position permanently; io the plp.ee of Colonel Robert Johnson, the Pre? sident's son, who is now absent. The marine losses of American vessels during September, by fire, wreck, collision ana similar disasters, were twenty-three-of which two were ships, four barks, five brigs and twelve schooners. The aggregate value of theftc vessels was $831,000. The total loase* by marine disasters, for the nine moths of 1867 that have passed, have been 888 vessels, valued at $16,270,100, as compared with 889 vessels, valued at- 819,682,800, during the same period Issi year. SPECIAL NOTICES. ?ANOEnODS SEASON- An almost unparalleled quantity of rain baa fallen daring the bummer. Vegetation has been wonderfully thiok and rank, and, aa it de? cays, an unusual amount of sickness may be expected unless proper means are taken to provont it. Fever and aguo and bilious remittents already prevail to an alarming extent, and aa the fall advances, and tho malarious night fogs become beaver, the sick list is likely to increase, both in tl.o city and tbe country. It is, therefore, only an act of common prudence to keep the vital forces iu foll vigor, so that thoy may resiat tho unhealthy influences of tho season.
