Chicago tribune*
The nation has escaped two great perils,
End it ishard to say which was the greater.
1 1st The capture of Washington and Bal
timore and the occupation of Jlaiyland
end Southern Pennsylvania, by the rebel
army. 2d. Therecall of the “ Grave-digger
of the Chickahominy ” to the head of the
snny. The latter may safely he considered
Jhe greater, as it included the former as one
of its results,
XI the President had yielded to Copper
head pressure and clamor after Lee entered
Pennsylvania, and had placed General
McClellan in command, his first step would
have been to tall back behind the Sosqne
h anna/go to digging entrenchments and
calling, for reinforcements. Washington
and Baltimore would have been aban
doned, to the rebels as indefensible, and
Maiyhmd would have been evacuated.
On the north side of the Susquehanna
he would have begun calling for more in
fimtry,’artillery, cavalry- and baggage—
•particularly baggage, and it is doubtful
Whether he would have moved, forward a
step before winter set in. One thing is
certain, he would no more have thought
of marching in search of the enemy with
in three days of his appointment, with
the fragments of thearmy of the Potomac,
and giving battle at Gettysburg, than of
walking into his camp tires and deliberate
ly rousting himself to death.
Out readers recollect that when he was
recalled, eleven'months ago, to replace
Gen. Pope, that he advised the evacuation
of Washington and its surrender to the
rebels-; that with an army one-third larger
than the rebel force, be consumed twelve
days in crawling up the Potomac twenty
eight miles, and that after he had languidly,
fought the battle of Antictam, he refused
lo follow up the rebel retreat, refused after
wards to pursue them, and lay on the north
. ride of .the Potomac with an army of 140,000
jnen for two months of magnificent cam
paign weather,di >ing nothing but disobeying
orders, consuming rations, mtfitiplymgbag
gage, and cuffing for more reinforcements.
TU6 reason of the Copperhead clamor
for his appointment to the head of the
anny,is as transparent as a pane of glass.
Jt was because it was known thathe would
mot boldly and vigorously attack the rebels,
Gmt every Copperhead sheet and leader
yalsed a simultaneous call, for his re
placement at the head of the army. They
believed that our troops once withdrawn
to the north ride ol the Susquehanna,
with the National Capitol in the hands of
the rebels, and southern Pennsylvania and
Maryland abandoned to their arms, that
our Government would be driven to con-.
eluding a disunion peace with the Confed
erates. That was the reason they cried
ontwilh one voice for the “ Grave-digger of
the Chickahominy” to be placed in com
mand of our troops. Thank heaven, the
country has escaped that fearful periL Let
Copperheads gnash their teeth, the Admin
istration is not ready to adopt the Susque
hanna -as the Bouthe-astem boundary ot
the Union.
If the Copperheads and rebel sympa
thisers were treated to alitUe of the land
of medicine the rebels Tisit upon loyal
Union men at the South, we should hare
less blatant treason among ns. The mere
expression of Union sentiments has cost the
lives of thousands of liberty loving pa
triots at the Booth. And jet these cut
throats are the special pets of oar Copper
head fraternity. AH succeeding ages will
aghast at the horrid crimes of this
rebellion, when once its history is folly
*We have before ns a record of the pro
ceedings before H. 6. Downing, Justice of
the Peace in the county of Benton, Arkan
sas, in which the main points of the testi
mony against Franklin Snuffer are given.
The document, dated Kov. 80,1801, was
Idndly sent us by Major James Grant 'Wil
son. It was captured, among other papers,
nt Haines’ Bluff, and bears the most in
dubitable evidence of its authenticity.
Win. Bingham swears:
In -wheat harvest. J was working .with
Tnmklin Snuffer on H. M Sharp’s farm, when
In conversation, Snuffer said that when be got
■ his wheat out, tf Lincoln’s men came in here
he wanted to make them a big dinner, and
from the nm of his conversation, 1 believe he
spoke htsFCptlmenta.
S. XL TTiHiamson swears:
In fodder-palling time, F, Snuffer Bald, if
the Northern army came through here he had
xite smart of com and wheat, and they , were
welcome to it. He would he d—d if ho would
ever fight for the South.
Several other witnesses testify in substance
to the facts that Snuffer talked against and
declared that he would not fight for the South.
Ifrom. what had transpired there can
he no doubt that lor thus expressing
hla opinions, poor Snuffer lost all his
property. and most likely his life.
Tried by the same standard, how would
the Hoh. , TTal>a«7i C. Goody, and Hon.- M.
' Tfo&eaft Fuller, usually called the little, and the
Chicago Times fare? Rebel ‘justice if meted
' out to them, "would put them in a far -worse
position than Vallandlghani. While no sane
' man at the North would wish to copy the dia
bolism of the South, a little wholesome sev
erity, and certainly a stronger and more ont
‘ cpbkcn patriotic sentiment would do oar
,' home traitors good.
/When Gen. Hoeecrans with his army
set out from Murfreesboro, ’every one ex-
■_ pected to bear of the utter annihilation of
Bragg. - The army of the latter was on the
" retreat It bad been weakened by drafts
v to icinfoice Johnston and Lee, and seemed
an easy prey to our advancing forces. On
v the other hand, the army pf the Comber
. land had completely recovered from the
tfects.of.the Murfreesboro fight The long
mouths of rest had been improved in thor
ough organization. The corps were
strengthened, and the cavaliy rendered
more efficient, by the active and well
-directed labors of the gallant Turchin.
; The men were in fine spirits, eager and
longing for the fray. The expectant hour
; . Arrived. Bragg’s army commenced a re
treat, and Bosecrans 1 army, like an impa-
Ttient hound, slipped its leish and dashed
onwards, confident *of being in at
■ the death. But Bragg slips away from
. them, and now interposes the breastworks
of-Chattanooga between himself and our
v advancing columns. Two parts of Bose
crans' design were accomplished—the
possession of the gaps which separate the
Talleys of Stone and Duck Rivers, and the
turning of the enemy’s line of fortifica
tions along the latter stream and his pos
ition at fihelbyville.
But there was a third step of vital impor-
tance, and that was the occupation of Tnl
-lahomawhile Bragg was still atShdby
\ille. This tailed, and the correspondent
' of the Cincinnati Gazette assigns some
most excellent reasons. Ist. The delay of
Ciittepden in bringing up his corps to
Manchester. 2d. The precipitancy of slo
<Cook in driving the enemy through Lib
f city Gap on the Wartrace road, when he
should have possessedhimself of the north
ern month of the passage and made the
'enemy believe there was our main point of
attack. .
The rebels then concentrating at the other
month ot-the gap would not have fallen hack
on Bhdbyville stall, and notwithstanding the
sluggish movements of Crittenden on the left,
wc might still have time to possess ourselves
. ofTullahoma previous to Bragg’s arrival
there.., V® might have succeeded, notwith

*** ~ «ntbs success, bod Crittenden's corps

rains, and well nigh impassable roads,
absolutely precluded rapidity of advance,
and it is almost a miracle that they did
not meet with a Bed Bea overwhelming.
tVas McCook to blame? His victoiy at
the Gap was certainly an important one,
even though it may have defeated the
general plan; hat censure in this case most
be withheld until we know whether he
obeyed instructions. Until the enact or
ders of Gen. Bosecrans are known, Mc-
Cook at least stands before the conntiy
the hero of a victoiy which, we fear,
stood in the way of a still greater victoiy.
" pr The centre of Gen. Meade’s army at
the great battle of Gettysburg, was in the*
cemetery belonging to the place. Every
effort of the rebels to break the centre was
repelled with terrible slaughter. During
one of the attacks the rebel columns sud
denly found themselves exposed to an enfi
lading or cross fire, from both
Their only escape from certain death was
by throwing down their arms, and rushing
forward, Shouting “"We surrender.” Lee
might well exclaim, “Hark from the tombs
a doleful sound I”
|3g*lt is enough to take away the breath
of a loyal man, to think of the narrow es
cape of the country from the replacement
of the “Grave-digger , of the Chickahom
iny” over the gallant army of the Potomac.
That would have been a sad day for the
Xlie Ulnc Lights of 1803*
Bays the Cincinnati Gazette: The parallels
of history areveiy striking. No men ever
did anything so foolish or insane bat some
body in another generation was foolish enough
to follow their example. In the midst of the
war with Great Britain, the peace part of the
old Federal party called the Hartford Con
vention, to denounce the Administration, and
about the same time other members of the
party hung out blue lights along the rocks of
Stonington and New London to guide the
British ships. The example Is now followed
by a port of the Democratic party, and unless
the parallels of history with the same
motives, to be attended with the same sac
cess. The peace party of 1814 were drea^foi
ly horrified with the atrocities of a war car
,ried on against onr brethren. An unholy,
unjust, unrighteous war was the theme upon
which Caleb Strong and his compeers de
lighted to dwell. See the parallel in Wood’s
New York Convention—an unjust war against
our brethren I Ohio has no ocean on which
to hang out blue lights to rebel ships, so the
Peace Forty Democracy did the next best
thing—they hung ont the blue lights of a
rebel nomination. See the nomination of
Vrilandigham, who had been previously nom
inated in the rebel camp. Here the parallel
fails, for no Federalist was silly enough to
confirm a British nomination or to applaud a
convict. That was on improvement reserved
for onr day and onr State. Convicted by a
court martial; convicted by the United States
Court; convicted by the people; confined In
the South, Clement VaUandigham is the con
vict candidate for Governor of Ohio! Can
any man get over this fact? If any man with
a character for sense or decency votes for
him, can be ever shake off that fact ? The
poisoned shirt will stick to him forever, and
be pointed at and hooted at by the boys of
other generations.
Copperhead* Cleaned. Out at
Hit. lemon, lowa.
The Muscatine (Iowa) Journal says there
was an exciting time at the anniversary exer
cises of Cornell College, at ilt. Vernon, on
the 20th ult. It seems that about a dozen
persons from Marion appeared in the crowd
with Copperhead pins. Abont two thousand
persons were present, the exercises being beld
in a grove. On the appearance of the secesh
emblems, business was suspended by the
tumult, and every Copperhead badge was
hastily taken from its owner and he forced to
hurrah for the Union. A gray-headed traitor,
who has long been blatant for the Southern
Confederacy, declared that he would not hur
rah for the Union, hut a little choking
brought him to terms. One young woman
had on the Southern badge, which was tom
from her breast, clothes and all, by another
young woman. The latter had her bonnet
destroyed in capturing the pin, and some
young men raised eight or ten dollars iruianUr
to replace the bonnet. The Copperhead pins
being all “cleaned out, 1 * the exercises were
resumed, and passed off very satisfactorily.

Washington Evening Star , has been indicted

tay The London correspondent of the Kew
York limes says that the operations of Gen.
Giant on the Lower Mississippi, have extort

A CorrzHHEAD Squelched bt a Woman.
A correspondent of the Res Moines (Iowa)
Register, writes a ludicrous account of a set
to between a copperhead bully and a Union
lady in Calhoun county, in which Hr. Bully
had a copperhead pin taken from his shirt
bosom in spite of defiant assertions that such
a thing could not be done by 41 all the Union
men Sh Calhoun county.” The strong arm
of an earnest woman and a red hot fire shovel
did the work handsomely.

Chandler and Sumner, to Washing
[Special Correspondence of the Gin. Garotte,}
Washington, June 30. —The time has come
when there is no longer any impropriety in
revealing certain facts connected with the
late and the present campaigns that intimate
ly concern oar Judgment of both. The bur
den of these facts is, that neither General
Booker nor the “war men” ot the adminis
tration (as they have come to be known) are
in any wise responsible fur the policy that has
rendered the present rebel Invasion possible.
It will he remembered that alter the reverse
at Cbanceliorsville, much attention was di
rected by the journals in the interest of the
toiy democracy to the presence in Washing
ton of Senators Wade, Wilson, Sumner and
Chandler; and the “abolition junta” was de
scribed as at once bewildered by the “defeat
of their favorite,** and .“industrious
in schemes to prevent the return of"—
the Inevitable McClellan.
The Senators were occupied about much
more Important and practical business. They
foresaw clearly what the certain resnlt of in
action would be, and collectively pressed up
on the Administration the warning that unless
the army of the Potomac were speedily rein
forced and placed on the offensive again, the
rebelswould undertake another campaign of
invasion. It was in less than ten days after
the Cbanceliorsville reverse that this impress
ive warningwos~gtven, and again and again
The Administration seemed to be convinced
but replied that it was impossibleto reinforce
Hooker. But it Is not impossible, argued the
Senators. Take our troops from Yorktown,
Fortress Monroe, and North Carolina; if need
be from South Carolina even; leaving only
garrisons sufficient to hold the fortified points.
Scattered as they are, these troops are useless;
concentrated upon Lee’s exhausted army at
once, they may be able to drive it pell-mell
through Richmond; and in any event they
con keep it on the defensive.
General Hooker was of course eager forthis
course. . Anxious to fight again, with or with
out reinforcements, it was natural that he
should seek as much numerical assurance of
success as possible. He had bis plans for a
new movement; they were discussed with
the Senators, who visited him to see if hostil
ities could not he Immediately resumed; and
finally, through their agency,|General Hooker
came to Washington, and held long consulta

and Gen. Halleck.
The result of these consultations was a de
cisive and successful opposition on the part
of Gen. Halleck to every plm proposed.
Then followed the triumph of the Halleck
policy, long weeks of inaction, the depletion
of the army by the expiration of enlistments,
the scantiest reinforcements, continued dis
persion of troops, and, finally, and by the
legitimate reference, the meddlesome Senators
had pointed out, rebel invasion.
It is too early, perhaps, to pass any judg
ment'on all tins; fortunately, it is not too
late to fix the facts; and justice alike to Geu.
Booker, the . Senators, and the war members
ot the Cabinet, requires their statement now.
Had the counsel of these gentlemen pre
vailed, it is not certain that we would- have
won perfect success; but it is certain we

mitted, and indeed, produced this invasion. ’
Seven Devils Cast Oat—"War In the
[Correspondence of tbe Evening Pojt]
There was quite a remarkable and scriptur
al casting out of devijs in one of the Presby
terian churches here a short time since. A
clergymen named Thorn, from Brooklyn, New
York, preached an upright and downright loy
al sermon, whereat some of the “pillars”
left their pews and rudely withdrew, thereby
ehowiug their own hands to be morally red
with the blood oi the loyal sons and brothers
of other members of the church.who had gone
to the field and not returned. The spectacle
was most unbecoming, nngcntlemanly,
and insulting to the whole congregation,
but the “pillars” have gained a dis
tinction by it, which, If I mistake not, will
stick to them for a long while. Unfortunate
ly for them, they were just seven in number,
and the mot was cleverly circulated that Hr.
Thorn had “cast out seven devils.” Where
they ran to, or whether they spoiled any of
their neighbors 1 pork, is not Known. You
might say to Mr. Thorn, who, I suspect, U a
Beech-cr Thom, that he stuck those eevenpU
lare against tbc city walls, and th it many are
they who read and laugh at the placard.
There has been war in the churches here all
along, since the rebellion broke out. The
Rev. Mr. Wiswnll, Presbyterian, is a loyal
regiment in himself A number of his purse
proud members foolishly thought that their
withdrawal and emigration to another church,
would break him down. Bat it stiffened his
back, and sharpened the pluck of his congre
gation generally, in a remarkable degree. Dae
of the first Things the emigrants bad to listen
to in the church where they took refuge, was
a prayer that God will bices the President of
the United States. Bishop Lee, of the Epis
copal Church, is another loyal, traeaad faith
ful preacher- I -attended his service on Sun
day, at the hospital, and never listened to a'
more appropriate and winning discourse than
he addressed to the soldiers.
Return ol Captains Spcko and Grant.
Captains Speke and Grant, the African ex
plorers, arrived at Southampton, England, on
the 17th inst., from Alexandria. They were
welcomed by tho Mayorof Southampton, who
proffered them an invitation to a public bou
quet. The London Tima says:
Captains Speke and Grant both warmly ex
pressed their feelings of gratl'odc at the kind
and cordial manner in which they had been
received, and the very gratifying words which
bad been addressed to them by the Mayor in
•he name «f the inhabitants of Southampton.
They regretted, however, that their engage
ments with the Royal Geographical Society,
and others in London, would prevent their
acceptance of the hospitable Invitation which
had been so generously tendered to them.
Hie gallant travelers then gave a few details of
their Jonrney,which extended over three thou
sand miles, and showed to the deputation pho
tographic andotherviews which had been taken
illustrative of certain points of their travels.
Captain Speke, in a former expedition, dis
covered the great lake Nyanza Victoria, which
lies on the equator (four degrees south and
on# degree north,) in the interior of Africa.
He left Zanzibar with Captain Grant on a
second expedition, and in circumnavigating
the lake Nyanza found a river issuing from it
to the north, which river they followed until
they reached the old Nile and arrived in
Egypt, It had thus been satisfactorily and
finally settled that from this lake the main
stream of the White Nile takes its source.
When they started from Zanzibar they were
accompanied by a guard of about 120 natives,
of which number only twenty-four remained
when they reached Cairo, all the rest having
dropped off by deaths, desertions and other
causes. Many travellers from Egypt have
heretofore ascended the Nile, trying in. vain
in that way to discover its source, but no one
bnn ever before descended the Nile from its
After again thanking the deputation for
the kindness of their reception, tbo interview
terminated, and Captains Speke ondGrontleft
by the half-past eleven a. m. train lor London.
It will be pleasing to their numerous
friends and admirers to know that both the
distinguished and enterprising travelers ap
peared to be in the enjoj meat ot the best of
health and spirits, albeit their bronzed and
somewhat weather-beaten countenances un
mistakably indicated the severity of travel
which they had undergone in their ever mem
orable expedition.
Official Circular Regarding tlio
Exchange of Prisoners of
Was Depahixent, Adj’t Geseiial’s Oppiob, 1
Washington, July 8,1863. f
L The attention of all persons in the mill-,
tary service of the United States Is colled to
article 7of the cartel agreed upon July 22,
18C2, and published In General Orders No.
142, September 25, 18G2. According to tho
terms of this cartel all captures must be re
duced to actual possession, and all prisoners
of war must bo delivered at the places desig
nated, there to be exchanged; or paroled until
exchange can be effected. The only excep
tion allowed is In the case of commanders of
two opposing armies, who were authorized
to exchange prisoners, or to release them on
parole at other points mutuallyagrecdupon
by said commanders.
IT. It is understood that captured officers
and men have been paroled and released in
the field by others than commanders of op
posing armies, and that the sick and wound
ed in hospitals have been so paroled and re
leased in order to avoid guarding and remov
ing them, which in many cases would have
been Impossible. Such paroles are in viola
tion of general orders and the stipulations of
the cartel, and are null and void. They are
not regarded by the enemy, and
will not be respected by the armies of
the United States. Any officer or soldier who
gives such parole will be returned to daty
without exchange, and, moreover, will be
punished for disobedience of orders. It is
the doty of the captor to guard Ms prisoners,
and if, through necessity of choice, he falls
to do this, it Is the duty of the prisoner to re
turn to the service of his Government. He
cannot avoid this duty by giving on unauthor
ized military parole.
in. A military parole not to serve till ex
changed must not be confounded with a pa
role of honor to do or not to do a particular
thing not Inconsistent with the dntyofa sol
dier; thus a prisoner of war actually held by
the enemy may, in order to obtain exemption
from & close guard or confinement, pledge his
parole of honor that he will make no attempt
to escape. .Such pledges are binding upon the
individuals giving them: but they should sel
dom be given or received, for it is the duty of
a prisoner to escape, if able to do so. Any
pledge or parole of honor extorted from a
prisoner by ill usage or cruelty isuotbludlng.
IV, The obligations imposed by the gener
al laws and usages of war upon the combatant
inhabitants of a section of country passed
over by an invading army' closes when the
military occupation ceases, and any pledge or
parole given by such persons, in regard to fu
ture service, is noli and of no effect.

[Correspondence of the Erenlng'Post.]
Baltmobs, July 3,1888.
Baltimore is in a state of siege at last. Mil
itary power is now dominant, and with it has
come a sense of security hitherto unknown*
The people have yielded with grace to the
necessities of the hour—nay, have come up
manfully and cheerfully to the requirements
of military law. Even the rebels here are
quiet, and sneer no longer at the drawn sword
hanging over their heads.
Last evening at 6 o'clock the streets of the
city presented a deserted and desolate aspect.
ah the stores were closed at 5 o’clock punctu
ally. The loyal men had gone to the military
rendezvous, and the disloyal made themselves
scarce. The two nights since the alarm Vere
us quiet ns could be Imagined. The sense of
d»i ger imposes circumspection on every body,
friend as well as foe. If your city could be
made to experience the quieting and restrain
ing effect of martial law, it would not be will
ing to surrender it in a hurry. For the good
and loyal a state of siege has no horrors. It
is only to the had and disloyal -that it comes
as a sword.
A squad of one of the gallant Massachusetts
regiments, the 51st, I think, has just left my
door, haring come with a policeman to get
any arms in my house. The moment the po
liceman saw me, he apologized and said it was
a mistake. 1 bade them a cordial welcome,
and they went forth to my r£bel neighbors in
search of what they wanted.' The vrtiole city
ie now disarmed —at least the disloyal portion
of the population. This ought to. have been
done two years ago. The government will
find not less than eight thousand stand of
arms in rebel hands, if it uses the proper
means to ferret them oiit. There must bo no.
more halting in this matter.
This morning the government made short
work of sundry rebel scoffers who would con
gregate at street corners and abuse the gallant
and hard working colored men as they return
ed from the trenches, which this down-trod
den race are digging for our defence against
rebel enemies. -These evil-minded-follows
were sentenced to the trenches for ! two
mouths, on half-rations and without pay!
There must he some three thousand colored
men at work on the fortifications, which they
do with a will They return at nigat earning
the flag of their country and slngiugthe John
Brown song. The next step is to ■ give them
guns. A regiment is to be raised at once by a
well-known and gallant officer of our State.
The Pirates at Portland.
[From the Boston Journal, 2nd.]
These gentlemen are taking it very easy in
Fort Preble. As they have plenty of money,
they order whatever they think they lack,
and profess themselves tolerably contented,'
under the impression that they will be very
speedily exchanged. On the subject of their
responsibility to law, various opinions are
afloat; but the general idea is that they can
not be exonerated from the* charge of piracy.
Their vessel, the Archer, was not a privateer
—the Portland Courier says—in such legal
sense os to entitle them to leniency as prison
ers of war.
, The same paper says that the ready story
told by the pirates Ims led many to distrust
the truth 61 their narrative, and that there is
great reason to doubt that the logbook found
un boaid the Archer is a blind. The paper al
luded to further says that the aflair at Port
land may hare been a ruse resorted to by the
real commander of the Tacony to detach Read
and his crew from that vessel to the Archer,
aid send them along the shore to cutnp their
devilish pranks, and establish the belief that
the Tacony is destroyed, just to throw the
authorities off their guard, and prevent far
ther search, and to enable the commander
again to commit his piracy upon our com
merce, and that the croft reported os seen on
Saturday, supposed to be the Tacony, may
yet prove to be that identical vessel.
The Afyn* of Wednesday says that nine of
the crew of the cutter Caleb Cushing asked
and obtained* their discharge on the ground
that they did not wish to serve on the same
vessel with Blish and two or three others of
the cutter’s crew who. showed the white
feather when the cutter was captured. Blish
even went so far as to offer to take the oath of
allegiance! But he was told that his services
would not be required. The three others
showed cowardice, and these men refuse to
associate with them; but say they arc rerdy
to serve “Unde Bam” at any time and on
any occasion, as they always have been. They
blate that there was on board nluety-ihree
rounds of 32pound shot, and also some shells.
There was also a lot of 12-pound shot and
shell. All this was concealed in an apartment
underneath the cabin, between the ward room
and the cabin, and that they refused to in
form the rebels of the fact, although pressed
to do so. There was also shot in the wings
on both sides of the magazine.
■When the pirate, Lieut. Reed, stepped on
board the Forrest City, on Saturday, he gave
Lis carpet bag to Capt. Llscomb, who gave it
to his mate lor safe keeping, in the excite
ment of the moment it was -overlooked uatU
the boat returned from Boston on Tuesday,
when its contents were examined. Among
other documents, were found the instructions
from CommauderMoffitt of the Florida to
' Lieut Reed, a bond of 9150,000 taken from a
Boston ship; also the papers of the various
vessels destroyed, and other valuable papers.

The Harrisburg correspondent of the N. Y.
Times relates the following incidents of the
rebel invasion:

collected in front of Ms house, and he came
out and made a little speech. He said, (so I
t>m informed from several sources,) that he
sympathized with them, that the rebellion
was Justified and the war unjust, that it was
all the Abolitionists, Ac., &c., &c., in the
usual style of the Copperheads. Whereupon
the rebels Immedla'cly proceeded to give him
a benefit. They took all his horses and cattle,

rebels have only served all Copperheads they
have come'.across in the same manner, the
loyal people will be grateful to them. There

BiographT of a IVolorions Ele
Among the most attractive features of Yon
Ambuigh &Co ’s Menage'ie is the celebrated
elephant. Hannibal, the largest animal ever
exhibited in this country or la Europe, and,
as the old fellow bos so frequently furnished
newspaper itemizers with material for spicy
Miragraphs that his name has become familiar
o almost every one. a brief sketch of his his
tory may be found of interest
Hannibal was brought to this country la
1824, from the East Indies, and was purchased
by a butcher In New York, who exhlbitedMui
for a time in a stable in that city. He shortly
afttrfell into the hands of his present owners,
who have retained him' ever since, and who
would not now sell him at any pride. He was
.Supposed to be about twenty-five years of age
when imported, which wouldmake him sixty
three jeare old at tbe present time. \
TTunnlhal first distinguished himseli at the
Zoological Institute ‘ln"the Bowery, New
York, in 1825, when he saved the life of his
keeper, Mr. Joseph Martin, who now resides
at Glmrd, in Erie county. A large tiger and
tigress had escaped from their cage audiosten
ed upon a llama, which was allowed to run
wild about the building. Mr, Martin, hearing
the noise,- entered the apartment, without
suspecting the. extent of the danger, when
the. tiger—immediately crouched • to spring
upon mm. Martin was entirely unarmed! and.
au resistance to the attack of the eniuria-
ted heast would have been useless. At this
juncture Hannibal rushed forward, seized bis
keeper, and raising him out of danger, hdd
him safely until assistance arrived, and v the
animals were secured.
The admirable disposition exhibited by
Hannibal in the incident Just narrated, gained
him great credit with the public-os a humane
and well disposed elephant, of good feelings
.and generous impulses; .but his subsequent
conduct, .we are sorry to say, has entirely des
troyed tnat favorable impression,;and taels
now regarded, and-not without reason, os a
morose and incorrigible old rascal, who can
only be kept within the bounds of decent be
havior by the constant .use of chains and fre
quent applications of condign punishment.
His breaches of the peace have been so nu
merous that it would be impossible to detail
them within the limits of a newspaper article,
hiit we will briefly allude to a few of his most
violent outbreaks.
In 1847 this city was the scene of ode of
his most violent* bursts of fury. The
menagerie was wintering in the warehouse of
Leech & Co., on the banks of the canal, where
the Cleveland and Pittsburgh freight depot
now stands. '“Queen Ann,” an elephantine
maid, for whom Hannibal had formed a tend
er attachment, was removed from his com
panionship, and ho Immediately fell into a
fearful state oi sulkiness and rage. For
twelve days he refused all food, and during
llmt time lost no_less than three thoueajid
pound* in weight, as was definitely ascertain
ed at the time by the scales. He endeavored
to drown his sorrows “ in the flowing bowl,”
refusicj&o drink unless the water given him
was stiffly infused with whisky, but this in
dulgence, by which it was sought to humor
him, only 'rendered him more frantic in the
end. His keeper, and a favorite dog, with
whom he had been upon the best of terms,
became the special objects of hi) animosity.
At the first symptoms ot insubordination
he had been loaded with chains, and so
firmly secured that it was thought
impossible for him to break loose.
Hay after day passed away without any dimi
nution of ill temper upon the part of the
large heast, until at last Ms unintermitting
“surgingß” resulted in tearing array his fas
tenings, and the infuriated elephant was at
large la the building. A scene of the wildest
tenor ensued. Thelions, tigers, leopards and
other animals commenced dashing against the
sides of the cages, while the air resounded
with their cries.ot fright; the people by
thousands gathered around the warehouse,
armed with rifles and every description of
fire-arms. Hannibal roamed through the
building, tearing down timbers, raising his
enormous bulk upon Ms bind legs and beat
ing the roof with Ms trunk, and threatening
every moment to make a complete wreck of
the whole structure. Bat the man
ager, of the menagerie had provided
for tMs. Long poles, with strong steel
hooks at the ends, were brought forward
and inserted in Ms flesh on every side;
these were attached to ropes and tackle,
manned by hundreds of men, and finally the
angry monster, the blood flowing from his
laceiated body in torrents, but still straggling
desperately and trumpeting fiercely, was
brought to the ground and so chained os to
render him - perfectly helpless. Spears and
pitchforks were then brought into requisi
tion, and he was punished, until, completely
exhausted, he announced in his usual manner
his complete submission and promise of bet
ter behavior, when he was released, a wiser,
and for a time, a better elephant. * His appe
tite returned immediately and in a very short
space of time he had more than supplied his
extraordinary loss of flesh.
In 1854, when going .from Pawtucket to
Fall river, in Massachusetts, he had a misun
derstanding with his keeper, whom he com
pelled to fly for his life. Finding himself at
liberty, he started off at a furious pace, at
tacking even’ animate object that he found in
his path. He threw ahorse and wagon into
the air, smashing the vehicle all to pieces, and
then carried Hie mangled remains of
the horse a distance of fifty feet, to
a pond, into which ho threw the life
less- body. "Be next encountered an
other horse and wagon, and made kindling
woqd of the latter, the horse escaping by
flight. Coming to a third wagon, he smashed
up the whole establishment, threw the horse
thirty feet into an adjoining field, and then,
tearing down the fence, brought the body of
the horse bade and lain it down in the road.
Overtaking still another horse and wagon, be
demolished the vehicle, and, the horse escap
ing with the fore wheels, he pursued him for
eight miles, without able to overtake
the frightened steed. In inis race he traveled
& poitlon of the distance at the rate of a mile
in three minutes. Fortunately the occupants
of these vehicles sustained no very serious in
juries, and the proprietors'of the menagerie
effected a satisfactory settlement for the dam
ages with the parties interested. After kill
lag another horse, and doing other mischief
of a less serious character, he laid down ex
hausted in tbc bushes, where he was soon af
ter found and properly secured.
A few years since, while the menagerie was
at Williamsburg, H. Y., Hannibal suddenly
broke out in a furious fit, during the absence,
from the tent of his keeper, and after demol-'
isbing a wagon loaded with sawdust, turned
his attention to the cages of animals, which
he upset right and left, fortunately, however,
without seltlsg loose any of the dangerous
inhabitants, with the exception of a hyena or
two, which were soon captured. He then sal
lied forth into the street, dragging his chain
after him and trumpeting defiance. The of
tachca of the menagerie followed him and
drove him into a stone yard, where he was
kept until the long pikes and hooks of the
Young America Hook and Ladder Company
were brought upon the ground, when he was
surrounded and kept at hay until ropes were
thrown. around his legs and wound so he
could not move. He was then thrown, after
which he was speared and stabbed with pitch
forks until completely reduced to submission,
as he signified by “ begging” piteously, when
he was led back to his old quarters os docile as
a lamb. .. ..
Hla last fit of insubordination occurred in
Philadelphia, in February, 1801, and continued
for three weeks. -His owners know him so
well, now, that they can detect the approach
of one of these frenzies, and guard against its
unpleasant consequences. So, on tuis occa
sion, he was iso securely chained upon snow
ing the first symptoms of ill-temper, that he
was unable to do any mischief, except tearing
down an iron column which stood within his
reach, and throwing it with great violence
across the building. Since then he has con
ducted himself with great propriety, and Van
Amburgh & Co. are in hopes that he has re
formed, and will hereafter conduct himself as
a peaceable, respectable elephant should.
Still they watch, him with the utmost.vigU
’ance, add his.keeper is always ready for mm
in case he should manifest any disposition to
return to his old, disreputable tricks.
In 1659, while traveling In Mississippi,
Hannibal was ordered to swim the Black
Warrior River, which was then greatlv swol
len by a
ing as directed, he started on a voyage of dis
covery down stream, emerging suddenly on a
plantation some twelve miles below where he
entered. He came ashore' on the edge of a
cotton field, where d large number of darkies
were at work, and the effect produced among
them by the unexpected and terrific ap
petition may be imagined but cannot be
described.' The news spread, with all the
exaggerations which would naturally be given
to such an event, with incredible rapidity,
and resulted in a general stampede of the en
tire colored population of the county. It is
even said by some that a good many of the
darkies turned white with fright, and as a
proof of this numbers are pointed out in that
region who have not yet fully regained their
natural hue. It would hardly be fair, how
ever, to hold Hannibal responsible for all the
doubtful shades of complexion to be found
in that vicinity.
In 1856, a keeper, who had taken care ot
Hannibal for many years, fell from his horse
in & fit, near Zanesville, -Ohio. The huge
beast, instead of desertiughim. stood watch
ing over his senseless lorm nntll the train of
cages came up, and then suffered himself to
be chained and led away by-Mr. Thomas, his
present keeper, without making the slightest
resistance, although, had the other keeper
been well, each an attempt at authority on
the part of Thomas would have been resent
ed with friry. - '
Hannibal is temperate.and regular In his
habits, eating about four, hundred pounds
of hay and a couple of bushels of bats daily,
with such- allowance of apples, gingerbread,
&c., as the generosity of visitors may bestow
upon him, and an acre (more or less) of
clover, by way of. salad, wnen he can get it.
His only beverage'is water, ot which he con
rsumes a couple of barrels every day; His
weight is probably from 15,000 to 18,000
pounds. The lost attempt at weighing mm
was made some .five years since, when he
broke down the' scales at 14,000 pounds. lu

Hott the Bebelfl Scoff at Cop
The rebel papers scout at the Peace men;
the Richmond papers ‘‘spit” at thb Woods
and Yallandighams, and the Pennsylvania Cop
perheads are reviled while they are used by
the enemy’s troops in their State. A
Harrisburg correspondent, narrating the ad
ventures of a Federal spy who visited the reb
els at Carlisle, says:
The information of the rebels Is very fall
and accurate. They showed my Informant a
complete map of the fortificailoos hero, and
told him of fords on the river. They know
as well as we do the number of men we have,
and ihelrcharacter. They say that our mili
tia won’t be able to stand two volleys of mus
ketry, and that they are not afraid of os many
as we can bring against them. There are
plenty of Copperheads who furnish them all
the information they want, and point out to
them the places where goods are hidden.
While they use these meß,-they despise them.
u There,” said a rebel officer to my informant, •
“do you see that man?” (pointing to one of
these sympathizers.) “Well, he’s a -rebel:
and if I were In the place of you people that
areloyal, I would hang.him as qoou as we
get away from here.” The individual alluded
to felt the force of the remark, and left. The
rebels concurred In saying they , honored an
open enejpy, but despised a sneak.!
Attempt to Mubdeb a Soldibb.— One of
he cavalry soldiers stationed here was last
night, while returning to the city from Pike
county, and while in Kinderhook in that
county, some thirteen miles from, this city,
shot at and severely wounded by a Copper
head guerilla concealed along the road. The
soldier was riding in advance of a party of
other soldiers, as we learn, and was alone.
The wound was inflicted by buck shot. HU
comrades left him at a house in the vicinity
until this morning, when they ; returned,
brought him to town in abujjgy, and arrested
a man whom circumstances indicate to be the
guilty party. The Provost Marshal Is absent
to-day, and we regret that we could not ol>
tain more particulars of the affair. —Quincy

with the FULSOME RIGMAROLE put into the mouth* ;
of MEN OF STRAW by unscrupulous eaptricssad ,
charlatans, whose double object Is to SELL both their i
trash and the PUBLIC.
Believing, however, that FACTS IMPORTANT t* t

It may be thought, perhaps, that a prepartflou like

Some of these are of immense interest to oonsaod* !

twelve months that this GREAT FACT 127 MEDICA- j

The Immense Increase In the sale of BOSTETTEIVS j

Ds. HosrrTTXA—Dear Sir: Being of a bilious tem

heretofore, I determined, when leaving New Orleans
fer New York. In Jane Inst, to try your celebrated
Stomach Bitters. Having msde the trip in the propel-j
IcrTrade Wind without tholeast Inconvenience, owing 1
to their preventive efficacy. I procured, on the JCth of J
July, a box of jour Bitters. Cor the use of my *el: and f
a few friends, on our contemplated voyage to Europe ■
in the Great Eastern. Alter getting to s«a I opened
the box, and, together with about ton of my fcuow
paasesg«ra,paxtookotttie Bitten. On the seconddty 1
some of the ladles on board Alt tea sick, but by taking s
half a wine glassful three times a day. they soon re- ;
covered. Dr. Goldaborow, the ship's physician, and
Capt,Pston. the Commander, together with a Urga
portion of tire passengers, subsequently expert mated j
-with tire Bitten, and uniformly with entire auetns.
They win certify to the fact tiratdurlng the wnoietrtp
not one person on board was sea sick after the second
day. Dr. G. having appropriated the last remaning
bottle, as an Infallible specific, I had none of the arti
cle on my return voyage, and suffered more than I caa
describe In consequents, 1 have orders for two b*xes
from two of my late fellow paesengen. now In Liver
pool. and shall send them out by the next steam*.
