EXPECTED COUP D'ETAT AT WASH?
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?

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. Iie
inforced by the tonio operation of
HOBTETTER'S BTOMAOH BITTER8,
The system, however weak and suscepti?
ble, naturally will, in nine oases out of ten,
successfully combat every species of at?
mospheric poison by which epidemics aro
produced.
During the months of September. Oc?
tober and November, tho differ, nee in
temperature hntwoen diy ?2d sight is
very* great, and the chilling dews and mists
of the season are the prolific causes of in?
digestion, cholera morbus, diarrhoea and
dysentery. Bearing this in mind, remem?
ber, alao, that the BITTERS not only in?
vigorate the stomach and brace the nerves,
bat act specifically upon the bowels ana
the liver, imparting to those important
organs regularity and tone. It is not rea?
sonable to expect immunity from preva?
lent complaints if no precautions aro taken
to escape them.
HOSTETrER'S BITTERS aro at once
pleasaut to the taste, and the most, certain
of all safe-guards against febrile allanta.
