Halleck'a reoent threat, that " when the in is oror the heel or the army hall be naed to crash ont the sneaking traitors at the North," was no Idle menace, nor was It made on bis own aurhorlty. The men who compose Mr. Lin coln's Administration, and the men who are urging them on in their despotic coarse, will try to do that very thing ; meaning, by the sneaking traitors at the North, those Demo crats who have the couraee to exoose the vi olations of the Constitution perpetrated by the Republican party, and the total Bnbvotaloa of onr libertlos by those who have the temporary oontrol ol the Government. The Administra tion expect, when they get the conscription law enforced, to have a standing army of a million of men. And what orlme can they not neroa. trato with that cowerful engine at their dlsoo- sal Unless the peoplo are true to themselves. their liberties and their freedom will be stolen away some dark night, like a nurse or a triukai. Such a thing hat been done within the memo ry of the present generation. And what was done la r ranee may be dono In America. Wath. tor. Chicago Tmei, We have the authority of the Abolition gov ernment Of Illinois for statins' that a tout d'tlat was intended last September, by the "ruling powers" at Washington that it was the most imminent the Governor was aalinCed, and that the "ruling powers" contemplated a military despotism to suoceod the wipiug out of tho national Constitution. What deferred the blow last September has not yet transpired, but that il Is yet intended to be itruck, by a trea sonable cabal of Abolitionists, there oan be but little doubt. It is the incessant labor of this cabal to. tid the aruiy of every effioar aus- lieutBu ui uwapuruviug me AD0I1UO0 pojicy, and every effort ia made to so prejudice the oommon soldiery, by falsehood and miBreore- sontalion, as to impress them with the belief mat tne ponntry oan only be saved by the ore a lion of a military sovernment. to be sustained by their bayonets. Gov. Yates says such a movement was Imminent last September. Theiappersof the people's liberties are still at work. Professing a patilotiam superior to that of the majority of their countrymen, they are, at the same time, plotting the oveithrow of constitutional liberty, and the creition of a government with despotic poweis, backed by an enormons stanaing army. He who shuts bis eyes to this unmistakable tendency of thinea, under the present oorropt and imbecile national rule, is either a fool or unworthy the name and rights ol an American freeman. Springfield (.) Rtgitttr. ' . [From the Springfield (Ill.) Register, April 30.] The Chicago Municipal Election. The muniolpal eleotlon at Chioago was a most staggering blow to the Abolitionists. For two or three days they were perfeolly dazed, staring wildly and vacantly about them like men slope- Bed with opium. Mow that they are partially recovering from the first shook of their defeat. tbey resort to Ibe stale trick, as old as the bills, of crying "fraud," and even threaten to contest the election- The blow must have cracked their thick skulls, and partially destroyed Iboir memory. What! do tbey not lemember tbe factious conduct of the City Connoll, prevent. Ins a quorum for month?, and finally, when an absentee came back and a recreant Democrat had been bongbt, how they appointed Inapt oion Ol Election in every ward; ia some of them all Abolitionists, and in all others two Abolitionists to one Democrat, and that Democrat of their own seleotlon? Have they forgotten their own stupendous colonization of voters, Secure of sucoess because of Ibeir lull oontrol over the condnot of the election; to Bay nothing of their transparent fraud, so palpable as to deceive no one, ot calling an out and out Abolition t;oket " Union nominations'!" And now they cry " Stop thief," with the fruits of their robbery deteoted io their possession! We pray that the lunacy ot these Chicago Abolitionist; may soon degenerate into complete dementia Diamonds in War Time. Io ordinary times, dealers In trecious stones usually bave an ample supply ot these valua ble gems on band. It soems, however, that in time of war (this war, at least) this supply be comes very small oy aogrees, so great is the demand lor the "sparklers." At the commence ment of the rebellion diamonds were not only abundant but; were comparatively cheap. ' Io faint of value, ibese are only second to coin, f ol the first water, and free from defeot, a diamond of a particular size represents at all limes a certain equivalent In coin. At tbe present time these ooetly stones stand at a par value. The demand for them is very great. A new class Of purchasers have suddenly sprung iuto existence- People who two years ago could not tall tbe difference between a tiara of gems of tbe purest brilliancy and the spurious "sparks" that are- always in abundance, are now tbe best customers of tbe doalers in these luxuries. Having realized money In one way and another, tbey appear to be determined to Indulge in pnrohasing diamonds as extensively as the greatest millionaires in the conntry. A few days ago a man dressed in fine o1o:hes entered a well-known jewelry Btore in Philadel phia. His faoe was bronzed, bis bands boruy. His nose was an unmitigated pug, and h s teeth were indelibly stained by second class oaven dlsh. A tailor had clothed bim like a gentle man to the manor born, but his garments were an evident Incumbrance. "I want to look at some dlmons," be said, as be entered the doorway, A 'Junior cleik show ed bim to the "dimon" counter. He here re peated his request to a senior clerk. The latter took a quick glance at bis customer, and made np his mind that the man bad oome to tbe wrong place. ? ....... " Yon wish to see diamond lewelrj T " , "Ido.V 1 . . The olerk produoed a tray filled with imita tion gems, and submitted tbem for ioipeotioo. . Tbe man fingered several of the articles without speaking, and as silently laid tbem down, r Tbim Isn't what I'm afther. I want tbe rale kind. Show me somethln' wid the rale sparrlkle.' " . ' Thinking to get rid of a profitless customer the clerk produoed a velvet oase, In which re posed; in gorgeous emilgence, a bracelet, orcatt pin and eir-iinga In the finest diamonds, j ; " How do those snit you t " asked the olerk. The man looked at tbem. Ah! thing's the beau ties. W bat's the price o' tbim J V . : , j -, ' The aot is $7000," said the olerk, preparing to return tbem to Ibe case, not dreaming ol their nnrchase. V . Well, I'll take tbim," was tbe quiet and prompt reply. It was unnecessary to say that the clerk was aomewhat astoniabtd. In all his experience the purchase exceeded alt former precedent. Before leaving' the' itori. the) customer purchased a single stone diamond ring at $800, and gave bis cheoc In payment tor tne lot. tie was detain ed. In an inspection of other goods, while one of the clerks, went to the bank to test the value of the check,' who returned with Ibe money and the informatioo that if drawn for five times; tbe amount it wonld bave been as promptly honor ed. , Subsequent inquiry led to tbe discovery that tbe purchaser ot the diamonds in question had accumulated money following np the army and purchasing its offal lot1 soap manufacturing, at the samevtlma loaplog money lo officers at usurious rate and purchasing claims ot sol diers and other Against th Government. Th matt two year ago was foreman in lard and taiiow raotory. Pastor's Work. A clergyman was visiting a sick lady. She was a stranger to him, but her husband reco nizlng bira in the street, asked bim to visit bis dying wife. . He took the address, and present ed himself at the door of a stylish house. In side, tbe furniture, plotures, and ornaments were in keeping. , as be was admiring tbem tbe maid returned and Invited him up stairs. The ladv was alnklns fast: her flash was like alabaster. She rcoelved him with an artificial smile, and at once began talking about ber " luck" in being still alive, her kind servants, her capital doctors, her determination to be patient and courageous to the last. Miserable creature 1 The clergyman perceived with glance that she was without' God and wltbont hope. After an, appropriate remark to intro duce it. be inquired for her Bible, and simply enongh turned about expecting to see it; but mere was none: She colored and said tithe maid: "Fetch yours, Susan." ibe maid colored, and did not toink that she could. . Tbe clergyman gweised what that meaui. . ( Thea she said: "Brine mv keys: von will uaa my wedding Bible looked np lu the libra ry." "Stay," said the clergyman, " I have mine" producing his own from his Docket "where I can reach it ia a moment; onr Bibles should be as near our hearts as possible." Tbey retained their blushes and ho was glad oi it until be inn. When he paid his second visit, both of them were re my with their olco new liibies, even be fore he could unlock bis own; and now be no tices that they are well thumbed and turood down, and referred t) with ease; in other words, be trusts that they " are near their hearts now." But bow innocently did he convict tliem of that sin, that awfully common sin, a neglect ed Bible? A Beautiful City. Batavla, the capital city of the Island of Jua, acoording to the description of a newspaper cor respondent, is a briliant specimen of oriental splendor. The houses, which sre as white as snow, are plaoed one hundred feet back fnm tbe street, the intervening space being filled with trees, literally alive with birds, and every variety ol plants and flowers. Every bouse has a plazzi in Iront; and Is decorated with beauti ful picturei, elegant lamps, cages, etc., while rocking chairs, lounges and ottomans, ot the oicf at description, furnish luxurious accommoda tions for the family, who sit here mornings and evenings. At night the oity is one blaze of light from tbe lamps. Tbe hotels have ground ol eight and ten acres in extent around them, covered with fine shade trees, with fountains, flower gardens, etc. Indeed, so numerous are the trees, the oity almost resembles a forest The rooms are very high and spaolons, without carpets, and but few cui tains. Meals are served op about the same as at first class hotels in the United States, although the habit i of living are quite different. At daylight, coffee and tea are taken to the guest's room, and again at eight o'clock light refreshment. At twelve, break' fast is served, and at seven, dinner. : Coffee and tea are always ready, day and night. No bust, ness is done in the streets in the middle of the day, on aocount of tbe beat. The nights and mornings are cool and delightful; birds are sing ing all night. The thermometer stand about 82 degreei throughout the year. Tbe island abounds with tigers, leopards, anacondas, and poisonous insects of all kinds. The finest fruit s in the world are produced In great abundance, i A Sao Avfair Mr. Daniel Sbafer, axworthv and much respected citizen of our town, was drowned io the Muskingum river, it is supposed abont two o'clock on Thursday morning of last week. Very little Is known of the ciroumstantts connected with this distressing occurrence. It is known that tbe steamer Emma Graham passed this port on ber way np to Zincsville abont that time, and that Mr. Bhafer went to tbe boat with a snpply of bread, as it was bis custom to do at other times. The boat leaving tbe wbarf before be bad finished his business, he remained on her to Malta, after which noth ing more is positively known concerning the matter. His non-appearance at the usual time alarmed his family, who as soon as It was light set about searching for bim. It was soon dis covered that a small flat or boit nsed by the boys in floating on tbe river, was lying near the shore just above the Ferry Landing on this side ol tbe river, and In it was a lantern. This led to tbe suspicion that he had tried to crois the river and by some mishap, bad fallen over board and drowned. The search was continued and cbout ten o'clock he was found and convey' ed to bis late residence, and on tbe following day hi remains were borne to their long resting piaoe. Mr. sharer was a woitby oitizsn, an Indus trious young man, and an estimable bnsband and parent. HI family and friends bave the sympathy or all our citlzsns in this their sad bereavement.
