The history ol the French Revolution
during the palmiest days of the Reign of
Terror, when God was voted to bo a corpse
religion a nuisance, and virtue a crime
against the .people; when blasphemy was
upon every Jacobin’s tongue, and murder
Jo every Jacobin’s heart—can scarcely
show us, in all the vast and bloody proces
sion of Hie crimes whichlt celebrates, any
depravity more complete and appalling,
any action more cruel and fiendish, than
were exhibited in New York city daring
the three days of the late dreadful riots.
Bray post brings us fresh details of the
honors that were perpetrated during that
most disgraceful and terrible outrage upon
law and civilization. There is nothing like
it on the records ol this country. It
stands alone in its atrocity and infamy—a
damning, irradicable stain upon the es,
entchion of the Republic,
And this is precisely what the Copper
head traitors, who instigated this upheaval
of the living crime, and filth of
New York for the destruction of thatcity,
intended it to he. Maddened at the suc
cess of the Federal arms over the rebels
and seeing that the. Confederate cause
was tottering to its fall, and that the safe
ty and integrity ol the Republic would
soon be vindicated before all the unbeliev
ing world unless tremendous efforts were
made to thwart it, they resolved to bring
dishonor upon the name of freedom, and
discredit upon popular government, by fo
menting at the very .crisis -of triumphf a
scries of bloody insurrections in all the
large cities of the Union.
As we said in a previous article, the draft
had nothing to do with these riots, in the
minds of the scoundrels who caused them!
They made use of it, it is true, bat it wag
merely as a spur wherewith to raise and
goad the mob tothe deeds of crime and
violence which it commuted. Their real
motives were sympathy with the rebels,
snd hatred of the Administration, and of
free institutions; their design, to terrify the
Administration into a withdrawal of the
draft, not n New York only, bnt every
where,. that the cause of the Republic
might perish through lack of men to fill
- up the decimated ranks of the Federal ar
my. They thought to discourage the friends
of human liberty, and to confirm the des
pots of Europe in .the belief that the peo
ple of this country cannot govern them
selves, by setting before them these exhib
its of insurrection and brutal deeds, per
formed by the free citizens and voters ot
the Republic!
If our in competency could not be dem
onstrated in one way, they
that it should be proven in another; and
in any case, they were well aware that
these lesser civil wars in the loyal States
could not fail to inflict a deadly injury,
both at home and abroad, upon the Ad
ministration and the Republic. A country
which could not execute its own laws,
which, wkh supreme indifference, allowed
traitors openly to proclaim their adhesion
to the rebels, openly to advocate resistance
to the authority of the Government, and
‘openly to instigate mobs to destroy the
property of loyal citizens could no£ as
they very cogently reasoned, have much
claim to the sympathy of foreign govern
ments and peoples. They calculated upon
the fears of the Cabinet, the strength of
their own party, and the terror which
these mobs inspired, to save them from the
consequences of their enormous crimes and
But the question for us to consider Is
this: slmll these infamous wretches, no
matter what their rank and condition in
life, whether they be Governors of States,
creditors of newspapers—shall they be
permitted to ride rough shod, with impu
nity, oyer the law and the government, the
Jives, properties and estates pt the loyal
citizens? Shall they create riots at their
pleasure, to serve the purposes of party,
faction' and treason ? If so, the sooner we
have a military dictator at the head of the
nation the better. Any posable govern
ment is better than a mob government
The people might better live under the
Tale of the ex-Kang of Naples, whose
crimes are the horror of all the world,
than submit to the dictation of a brutal,
savage and ferocious mob. "We see by the
3\ew York riots, what we might expect
tom a mob it it riionld ever get the upper
Jiand in Chicago, and it is high time that
cur citizens were thoroughly prepared for
a contingency of this sort* If Copper
heads are to bread these murder gangs
amongst us, and turn them loose at their
pleasure, without punishment; if violence
is to take the place of law, and there is no
power either civil or military, available—
t.nd there is not —for our protection, it is
time that we thought of protecting our
selves. There are union men enough even
in this city to crush all the Copperhead
mobs, which the Copperhead press and
leaders, can marshal • against them. But
there is no time to lose before the prepara
tion is made. Clubs for protection ought
to be organized at once; and we areglad to
see that our German brothers are alive to
the importance of this movement; that they
Jihve boldly proclaimed their loyalty to
the Government; and their resolution to
meet any mob, armed against the peace of
the city, with bullets. It is cheering to
£nd such brave and noble loyalty in these
days of errant disaffection, and treason;
nnd we sincerely hope that all good
citizens whether of native or alien birth,
will follow the courageous example of
these noble Germans.
There may, or there may not, he danger
ofa repetition of the scenes ofNew Yojk in
this city—hut if there be, let ns-at least, he
ready for it • and when it comes let there
he no firing of“ blank cartridges,” no play
at suppression, hat a merciless sweeping
down of the brutal mob with grape shot,
and cannister. This in the end, would be
the most merciful thing that could befall
Our deferred dispatches from 'VV&shing

issue, portray a most ludicrous panic in
Charleston as Gen. Gilmore and the Moni

Natives of that city of the Palmetto, where
in is concentrated all the valor, chivalry
and heroism of the South; wherein all
those mythical last ditches of the South
ern Confederacy take their rise. The peo
ple are beside themselves with tear, and
the journals of that delectable den add
to the general confusion by solemn notes
of warning issued between chattering,
teeth. They appeal in affectionate terms
to the aged, and the females, and the chil

and in the same breath urge, as a Tnnttpr
of safety, the absence of everybody else.

the slow hut terrible and sure march of

Things hare changed since that April
Sunday, two years ago, when the high

Charleston rode down tothe promenades
and beaches to witness a grey-haired trai
tor, whose name lacked but a letter to
make him a ruffian, fire the first gun at
Sumter. It was fine gala day sport for two
days to witness the bombardment of the
brave little garrison. But now the Neme

Terrible Explosion*
Saturday evening, as the engine and tender

Joseph A- Slocomb, engineer, and S. Goodell,
fireman, were in the cabs, Cartright, Oliver
and Scott were sitting on the cross beam in
front, when the accident occurred. • Slocomb,
together with most of the cab, was* thrown
over the telegraph pole, and at least one hundred

ing any serious damage. No blame can bo
attached to Mr. Slocomb’, who Is a very care*
fill and experienced engineer.

burned. Immediately after they gave chase,
with their prize in tow, and ran a nameless
schooner ashore and burned her. The second
day after this, three more vessels laden with
corn and cotton were taken.

and forty-two years of age. He was educated
iii the Ohio University at Athens, which insti
tution he left in 1839, having received a mld
t-hipman’s warrant. At the breaking out of
tne Mexican war, he made a cruise in the gulf
and participated In sftue naval engagements.
In 1853 he was promoted to«L!entenancy. In
1855 be was dropped by the Betlring Board
most unjustly but subsequently was restored

in saving Fort Pickens from the rebels. He

The IV. IT. Slot and the Catho
lic Churches.
There were various sermons preached in
the Catholic Churches in New York on Sun
day, bearing upon the terrible scenes of the
week. That preached at St. Mary*s is thus
alluded to:
At the first and second in gt. Mary’s
Church, Father Daly made excellent dis
courses, and, jbj direction of tbe Bishop,
counseled the congregation to abstain in fu
ture from street gathering, and .endeavor to
keep the peace. He spoke with much feeling
oi the outrages that have been committed on
the colored people, and appealed to the
audience to protect these helpless people
whenever possible.
At high mass a crowded assemblage listen
ed to Father O’Fallen, who, after opening his
discourse, alluded to the dreadful disturb
ances of the past week, and of tbe numbers
who had been swept down by the iron hail la
the streets, whether right or wrong. He de
nounced revolution as subversive of human
ity, Christianity, and tho church, and against
God. History, he said, famishes no instance
where revolution has proved beneficial to the
church or humanity, and the head of the
church has been frequently threatened by re
volution, against which tbe church has now
firmly set i s face.. The law, he said, will be
- He denounced the expression of a celebra
ted Irish hero, who claimed to be a Catholic,
and has said, “ H the altar stand in the way
oi revolution, then perish the altar!” and de
clared that no Catholic could join in a mob.
He denied that any of those who had iaki»n
part in plundering apd destroying property
were Catholics, and-said that tho chnrcu
should not be aspersed for their deeds.
He solemly proclaimed from the sacred al
tar that none who were in the mob could re
ceive tbe sacrament of tbe church, nor even
at death could they receive absolution of the
church, until repentance; nor vffiuld repent
ance be accejftable until fall restoration to
the last cent should be made lor any property
wrongfully taken from others. To sol those
who did not make complete restitution, as well
as confession, the gates of Heaven would be
forever closed. He would warn the riotously
disposed to look well to themselves lest the
next bullet should deprive them of the soci
ety of the blest forever.
Dr. Hassle, of England, and
Yesterday memorable and interesting ser
vices were held in Dr. Sunderland’s church.
Dr. Hassle, the representative of four thous
and evangelical ministers of Great Britain,
and of five hundred Protestant ministers ol
Trance, preached iu the morning, to a veiy
full bouse, a discourse which enrfiAinfd the
audience by its simple and masterly enmuni
tion and illustration of the cardinal and cath
olic principles and doctrines of Christianity
by the eminently Christian spirit with
whldi it was uttered. His prayer for the
President, the country, the army, the bereav
ed families of soldiers, and ihe oppressed,
was a touching expression of patriotism anti
piety, and melted many hearts by its tender
nest and power. '
% In the evening, before a full house, he read
the address of the several thousand ministers
of Great Britain and France, to the ministers
ofthe United States, on the crisis of our coon
try and the subject ol slavery, which was re
sponded to by Dr. Sunderland iu a short, pat
riotic. fraternal, and Christian address. The
mitsion of Dr. Mas file is one of great interest
and importance, and has commended itself to
tbe ministers of all denominations in New
Tork and elsewhere, and will do much to cul
tivate and strengthen a cordial sympathy be
tween ministers and the Christian public in
this country and in England: Dr. iLissie had
a long interview with the Prcsldentyesterday,
who, we understand, expressed to him his en
tire approbation and sympathy with the ob
jects of his mission. It was tbe ardent wish
‘•f Dr. Music to bear back to England, and on
his misslbn through this country, a hearty and
unanimous response from the ministers of
Washington, as the capital ef the Eepublic,
but from some cause but few of our pastors
were present. Certainly, the object of this
accredited delegate, who comes with the high
ott testimonials, is worthy ofthe sanction and
sympathy of every Christian and patriot. He
made a most favorable impression on all who
heard him in Dr. Sunderland’s Church, and
bears from this city the cordial good'will ol
very many of iU citizens.— Washington Chron

The following dispatches were received too
late for insertion In our last issue:
WasmsoTOX, July 2t, 1883.
The Charleston Courier ol the 14th inst says:
We may expect the enemy to be severely pun
ished if he persists in his present under
taking, but we may be disappointed. Oar
'hopes may prove a delusion. The capture ol
«>ur city may perchance delight the enemy’s
base and corrupt heart, in case that frightful
Ca b i mlly fall upon ua. They who remain
here must suffer grievous evils. The woes
•hey will have poured out upon them will be
far heavier than those under whicAthe citi
zens of New Orleans, Nashville and Memphis
have groaned, for the vile foe hates the peo
ple ot this State with a ten fold more biter
hatred than he entertains for the Inhabitants
of any other section, and he will not spare us*
I when he comes as conqueror. On the snppo
; s tlon of the foe’s success, it is our dnt • to
avoid incurring his fiendish cruelty. AH who
can he of no service In the work of defence
should betake themselves to places of shelter
and it were well not to defer removal to a late
day. We may he compelled to remain, or £f
we make good pur escape, circumstances may
oblige us to leave all our personal effects be
hind. We should also consider that our city
is going to make a fierce and determined re
sistance. If the enemy get it, he will have to
t.kc it. No flag of truce will meet him mid
way between the wharves and Fort Sumter
in order to effect a surrender—we are goiag
to fight until we are driven from street to
street, and continue to fight while we are re
treating. So determined a resistance involves
immense injury to our fair city at the hands
of the enemy. It will be little better
than a heap oPrnlns. Even though the work
of destruction is not insured by military or
der, we repeat that we are of opinion that the
present attack will result as the other attacks
have done, and even more disastrously to the
mean and wicked foe, bulls it not proper to
prepare for the foe, for the worst, if we are
forced to defend our city alter the manner we
have resolved lodefcndit The women and
children, and aged men, who tarry too long
would suffer miseries Infinitely greater than
they will have lo bear during the temporary
exile. It behooves us to give the subject se
rious and profound consideration. If the en
emy Is forced to abandon the effort he is inak- /
ing to gain possession of our city, we can re
turn to our homes in a short lime. If he is
successful, which God forbid, we will have
avoided privations and woes of which we can
how form no adequate conception. Let us
take counsel of prudence.
The Augusta of the same date says:
The Yankees have agreat opinion of Geo. Gil
more, who is now in command of the forces
that are engaged against Charleston, lie is
considered a very dangerous man where forts
or other works are to be reduced by artillery.
He is a native of Ohio, and in 1844 graduated
at West Feint at the head of bis class. At
Fort Pulaski he for the first time brought his
tkill to the tert of actual experience. Pa
la«ki was considered next to Sumter in im
pregnability. Gilmore getting his guns to
within GOO yards, knocked it to pieces as he
might have cone a bouse of cards.
The Richmond Enquirer of the Bth says:
If the heroic city of Charle»ton should fall
now, it will be solely because Beauregard has
not force enough to defend its line of. lorad
The editor of the Savannah wri
ting to his paj>er from Charleston, says the
disaster on Morris Island is attributable to
bad engineering, for which some one should
be held responsible. The lower battery was a
shocking affair, and onr men left it only when
the carriages of the guns hod been shattered
topieyes. The battle, in the attack on Fort
Wagner, was the bloodiest and zno>t destruc
tive of the war. He was willing to do justice
to a brave foe. It may be added that a more
daring and gallant assault has not been made
on either side since the commencement of the
The Bichmond gives fall details of
the New York riots, and says:
The great riot in New York, of which we
give accounts to day. Is very significant, and
an important sign of opposition to the con
scription. Lincoln has been compelled to
suspend the draft, and Gov. Seymour was con
strained to promise this.
The Rfcumoud Enquirer s»ys of the6e*mobs:
We have but to persevere In our determin
ed resistance and gird ourselves to rhe task-ot
* ccuring our independence more sternly than
ever. Yet a little while and we shall see the
giant but hollow bulk of the Yankee nation
bursting into fragments and rushing down
iato perdition in names of blood.
Concerning Lee’s retreat, the Richmond
Examiner of the 17thsays:
The abandonment of the Invasion gives
sensible relief to the majority of our people,
as the Potomac is no longer between the
army and its base bf supplies.
Dispatch makes similar remarks. The
Sentinel considers the movement as a matter
of general gratification, In view of the swol
len condition of the river and the constant
rains, which suspend all millitaiy operations.
The T Vldg that, politically, the move is
a good one, as it takes from Lincoln all excuse
for conscription. In a military point of view.
It Is no less so, since Gen. Lee made it.

St. Louis, July 12.15C3.
The war against the radicals now waged bj
ibe Copperhead conservative'politicians, led
on by Got. Gamble, John B. Henderson &
Co., is growing interesting. The power of
Ibe civil and military is iu their hands, and
the poor radicals arc catching it wherever the
smallest chance is offered to strike them a
blow. It is deemed high treason in the in*
terior to say anything disrespectful of the Gov
ernor and to intimaican unwillingness to help
along the conservative scheme for prolonging
slavery, is a grievous offense, for which sev
erslarbitrory arrests.must be made.
In this city the radicals are not troubled, on
account of their ffumerical superiority,
though the conservative Copperhead lea
ders would be delighted to shut np the Daw*
crat and the German papers, if not to im
prison a few of the representative men of the
radical party. The ten days parole allowed
Mr. McKee, of the Democrat , expires to-day,
and Gen. Schofield most speedily determine
■ what he will do, as Mr. McKee adheres to his
refusal t® state how or where he obtained the
famous Llncoln-Schofield letter for publica
tion. -The President,it is said, has signified
his dissent to the arrest of Mr. McKee, and
bis wish that the proceedings may be dropped.
No harth dealing with the senior proprietor
of the Democrat will be countenanced by the
President. - Of that ample guarantees have
been given, and in the end the Commanding
General will be certainly discomfited.
A big ratification meeting will beheld—ac
cording to the present advertisement—on
Monday evening to ratify the so-called Eman
cipation Ordinance. The meeting has been
twice postponed, and it Is whispered among
the knowing ones, that the reason of the de
lay is the expected, arrival of Gen. Frank P.
Blair, Jr., who is going to regulate political
matters in this State, in veryshort order. As
the General was off at the head of his Divis
ion in Sherman’s corps, after Joe Johnston,
it is possible his friends here may be disap
pointed about his arrival this time. The calls
for ratification meetings in the interior, are
designed to bring together in political fellow
ship, all the Claj banks and Copperheads who
desire the defeat of the Radicals, preliminary
to 9 joint caucus for the election of two
United States Senators on the'rcassembling of
the Legislature. * The signs In the political
horizon indicate a combined effort to elect
John B. Henderson and John 8. Phelps to the
Senate by the Cl&ybank Copperhead vote
—Henderson living in the Northeast and
Phelps in the Southwest. It is presumed the
ticket will command a strong support. Ills
pimple truth to say the Radicals fekr the suc
cess of the programme.
While these political jars are in progress
the guerillas arc making more or lees head
way, though suffering some severe losses.'
Three more of the leaders have lately been
killed. Todd, who was present in person in
command of the batchers who killed the Bam
Gaty negroes; Joe Hart who led a gang into
Andrew county and produced such horrible
.■‘cores, and Ben. Livmgfttoa, who led a gang
’ recently but unsucceaetnlly against Stockton
iu Cedar county, all have been killed within
ten days and their bodies left in our hands.
The fall of the leaders is usually followed by
the breaking to pieces of the troublesome
gangs, and the killing of Todd, Hart and Llv
ingetoiPfonn no exception to the rule. Guer
illa operations have subsided and hopes are
iow entertained that since the fall of Vicks
burg and*the success ol the Union armies
elsewhere seems to render the Confederate
cense hopeless, bushwhacking will entire

Geo. Davidson's cavalry division was in the
vicinity of Bloomfield when last heard from.
An absurd report was sent here by telegraph
from Southeast.Missouri a few days ago, ihat
Price was once more advancing on Bloomfield.
A passenger who came from Fredericktown
ttaled that he heard there that Davidson was
actually fortifying Bloomfield to resist Price's
advance—a lie as It turned out subsequently.
The Information concerning the rebel move
ments near Jacksonport is very_meagre. A
fear prevails in some of the counties near the
line, that the rebels may attempt another raid
into the heart of Missouri, to obtain supplies
nnd forage, or to commit mischief generally.
Ample preparations have been made to meet
t-uch a contingency.
The steamer Hiawatha, newly painted and
looking as pretty os a new toy,. stuck up a

the boat for hew Orleans, but on Saturday
was loaded on Governmentaccount for Vicks

cent soldiers, about joining their regiments
in General Grant’s army. A strong desire
prevails here, to re open commerce with New
Orleans, immediately. General Grant is un
derstood to be opposed to this proceeding
but it is not improbable, a strong pressure of
tbe united cfforts*of Memphis, Cincinnati
Louisville, Chicago and St Louis merchants
upon the President, may induce that function
ary to allow trading with some restrictions
all along the river, below Memphis and He

scribed district One thing may be set down
os a certainty, if trade Is re-opened; no mat
ter how stringent are the restrictions, valuable
goods will be smuggled through our lines to

One of the most striking examples of the
pressure on the sanitary and medical depart
ments of the army in the East, caused by the
late battles, is illustrated bj tbe inability of
the department to famish tbe medical par*

armies with bandages. The medical purveyor
<. n Saturday, was compelled to refuse every
requisition from surgeon*, but during the day
ordered 73,000 bandages to be prepared at the
shortest notice to fill the order from post and
general hospitals. .As these simple articles

tragedy at Hj de Park, on tbe 4th of July,' oa
some of tbe German soldiers of the 2d Mis

Through the kindness of Major W. B. Row

have the following copy of a rebel letter tatfeu
from the person of a Confederate mail carrier,
named Hooke, lately upon trial before a mili

Dr. F. McFarland:
Dear Father Tours of the Ist was re
ceived yesterday, and it revived me wonder
fully. Major Bocey called to see me, but
would only star with me one night. 1 would
have been glad if be could have remained with
me longer. He stated that yon were
but could not tell by wbat means. Under the
circumstances, I was very glad to hear that
ou bad taken the oath, knowing that you
would only do so when compelled. My only
regret is, that you have those indignities to
submit to. We can only say, “ Quosque tan
6um, almtere nostra palicntia," —and be very
thankful when we get our bands oat of the
Ron's mouth.
The boys speak often of you in the highest
terms, and say if eveir one luyi acted as you

The news from Vicksburg Is encouraging,
but wc are prepared to hear of its fall at any
time. My own opinion of the situation Is
this: Vicksburg cannot be taken by assault—
a .protracted siege alone can do the work.
That unde;taking is now In progress. Grant
Is so situated that, while he is carrying on
offensive operations against the place, be can
also protect himself from any attack ofJohn

and swiftly executed. This'is our only hope.
If he waits for reinforcements, Grant, on ac
count of bis superior facilities, can daily in
crease the odds; for we have but one railroad
—via Meridian—with which to reinforce John-
Mon. After sending the troops to Jackson,
they have no transportation to carry them
farther. This is what has delayed Johnston
so lorg.

to wear the clothes. X have got on, already,
about as many as can be worn comfortably at

the clothes; everything fits finely.
When 1 opened the parcel, some of the

The Father of Homeopathy*
Editors Chicago Tribune
I find the following paragraph going the
rounds of thepressfanditis time tho*ridlcu
lons story had received its quietus:
Death of Tins Father of Homeopatttt.—
The death of Count S. G, 8. M. Dei Gaidi, is
reported at Lyons. The Count was In his
biih year, and was the father of Homeopa
thy, having in 1828 converted Hahnemann
from allopathy. Count Dei Guidl had pre
viously been a Neapolitan conspirator against
Queen Caroline (In 1799), a prisoner, exile
professor of mathematics, inspector of the
Cnivqpsity of Grenoble, a doctor of medi
cine, and finally of anti-medicine, and has
died a chevalier of the Legion oi Honor.—
To show the* absurdity of the above state
ment, it will only be necessary.to state a few
facte, recorded by Dudgeon, Bering, Peters,
and others of Hahnemann’s biographers, who
were well acquainted with him tmd all the in
cidents of his life.
Hahnemann was a physician of the domi
nant school until 1790, when, while engaged
in the translation of “ Cullen’s Materia Med
ics,” he was dissatisfied with the explanation
of the manner in which Peruvian, bark cured
intermittent fever. He then determined to
experiment upon himself, while in good
health, with Peruvian hark, In order to com
pare it* effects in health with its effects in
disease.' He soon discovered that “bark
given in large doses to sensitive, yet healthy,
individuals, produces a true attack of fever,
very similar to the intermittent fever.” This
discovery was to him what the filling apple
was to Newton—it led him directly to the
discovery of a scientific' law of cure. From
this time Hahnemann was a homeopathist,
and the Count Dei Gold! could have been
only twenty-one years old. It was more
than nine years before the Count was en
gaged in the “Neapolitan conspiracy.” In
the paragraph above quoted, it states that tbe
“ Count,” in 1828, “ converted Hahnemann
from allopathy.” In 1828 Hahnemann was In
the full tide oi his career, at Coethen, tfnd had
published all his works but hl» “.Chronic
Diseases,” then just Issuing from the press.
How such a journal as Ocdignani could gather
up such a tissue of absurd falsehoods, Is sur
prising. The “Count” mentioned may have
lived, hut certain it is that neither Hahne
mann, or any of his mention

A. Copperhead Lie Exposed.
Because General Grant was a Democrat
when the war broke out, the Democrats have
the impudence to claim him as one of their
sort of men, placing him In the same cata
logue with Copperheads like Baell, Porter,
McCldlan, McKinstry, Harney, Shields and
Franklin. Tbe Galena Advertiser disposes of
this slanderous imputation as follows:
It is alike unpatriotic and ungracious to be
higgling as to what may have been the poli
tics of any of our brave Generals in tbe Arid,
who have been nobly lighting for the Repub

it makes no difference as to what party a
soldier may have belonged to before the

Government and ills country, risking his
life on the battle-field, be challenges the re
spect and gratitude of the good citizen.
Y<£we find that*certain copperhead news
papers, that preach peace and denounce the
war, have the unparoileUed audacity to claim
certain eucccessfulGenerals as “Democrats,”
using tbe term in their own sense. Some pa
pers sympathising with the rebels, having
claimed our fellow-citizen, Maj. Gen. Grant aa
a ‘‘Democrat,” it may be proper for ua to say
a word toucbingbls politics, speaking by the
best authority. IJeing in the army up to with
in a few years before tbe war broke out, and
being a military man, he never cast a vote in
his life. In 1800, he was friendly to the suc

often expressed himself as having great confi
dfrceintbe honesty and patriotism of Mr.
Lincoln. His father, tbe venerable Jesse
R. Grant, now residing in Covington,
Kentucky, is a staunch Republican, and voted
for Lincoln and Hamlin. His brother, Mr.
O. H. Grant, now in charge of the business
bouse in this city in which the General was
engaged before' entering the service, is one of
our moat active and efficient Republicans, and
Union men. Tbe General himself is now a
thorough and devoted supporter of the Ad

qualification or evasion. In 1862, be was one

The following is an extrarr, of a letter from
8. G, Colbey, United States Agent for In
dians, dated Fort Lyon, Colorado, Juno'SOtb,
Sir: On my return from Washington I
found the Caddoe and other tribes of refugee
Itdians, under my charge, encamped at«tho
month of Walnut Creek, about thirty miles
•south of Fort Lamed. They had selected a
beautiful grove for their encampment, built
themselves huts, thatched with grass, dug
wells, &c,, and were anxiously waiting the ar
rival of their goods and' provisions. They
were destitute of both clothing and provis
ions, having been robbed of every thlngJiy the
rebel* before leaving Texas, and bad it not
been for tbe abundance of buffalo, many must
have died from starvation. Their goods and
provisions, purchased by me, (under your in
ttructior *,) arrived on'the 13th of this month,
and were immediately distributed among
them. . ,
They seemed highly delighted and perfociy
(ailfrllcd, and wished me to inform thelrGreat
Father at Washington that they would always
remain loyal to the Government of tbe Uni
ted State*.
They were very anxious to know when the
Fourth of July arrived, that they might cele
brate it as they bad been accustomed to in
tbeir own country. »
Ibcy rei resent that some SOO more are
about to leave Texas to join them. About

arrived there; these represent the condition
of those remaining behind aa truly deplora

that they possessed, bad been taken from
them io feed the troops In the Confederate

Gov. Doty, of Utah Territory, and Super
intendent of Indian Affrirerin a communica
tion to Hon. Wm. P. Dote, Commissioner of
Indian Affairs, dated the2oth of June,atGrcat
Salt Lake City, says he had just returned
from bis Northern Expedition, Laving been
absent six weeks in the Indian country, and
traveled over 600 milesj Ho accompanied
Gen. Connor to Snake River Ferry, two hun
dred miles,, where they-eeparatedf-aad tbe
General proceeded with *hls cavalry up the
Rlacii foot River, and south across the divid
ing ridge to Soda Springe, at which place be
bis established a military post on the old
California and Oregon roads. Tbe General
met tbe Bantacks and Shoshones in small
bands, after conatclUog with them, be
was satbilcd they were disposed to be peace
able and friendly. ' The exhibition of acavolry
Jo red among them apparently convinced them
that they c*>uld bo reached by tbe power
of the .Government, and that they
would certainly be punished if they
committed depredations upon the white
nit n. There are, undoubtedly, as
they say, some bod men among them, who
will not be controlled by tbe chiefs; but ef
foi is are made by the peaceable Indians to re
strain them.' The only bands that appear de
termined to continue hostilities were those of
thePukatels, Sagowits aud Ssnpets, and with
these tbe Governor could obtain no commu
nication. They must, be says, bo left with
Gen. Conner’s troops. When at Snake River
Ferry, two expressmen arrived, bringing in
formation that a large body of Shoshones aud
Bantacks were assembling at Kvnusb Prairie,
a t out 100 miles further North, and on the
road used by emigrants to Qannack City, with
tbe intention to either fall upon tbe miners
ou Beaver Head and its branches, or upon the
emigrants along the road, between South
Foss atd Bridger. If this could be prevented
by an interview, the Governor felt it to be his
duty to make tbe attempt, and he therefore
pr« ecedcd with his interpreter to the place
indicated to meet them. At Kamash Prairie
he found but few Indians, those remaining
stating that those who had been there had
gone hi different directions to the mountains
to hunt, and that they were all friendly to the
whites, and disposed to be peaceable. They
complained of the white men at Bannock City
filing upon them in the streets of that place,
whtn they were there upon a friendly visit
and were molesting no one. The whlto
men, without provocation, killed their
chi if, Bhnag, and two others. They
said they did not intend to avenge
the wantop act, because it was committed by
drunken white men, and they thought that all
the people there were drunk at the time.
The Governor advised them not to go there
again, and to keep away from drunken white
men; to be kind and render good service to
the emigrants along the road, aud that they
would be generously rewarded. Ho gave
them a few presents of blankets, &c. How
ever, fearing that there might be trouble from
the gross attack upon the Indians, and that
other bands might feel disposed not to over
look it, the Governor determined, as there
was no Indian agent in that section of coun
try, to proceed to Bannack City, about eighty
miles distant, to ascertaiu the truth oftheir
statement, and to counsel with those who
might be along the road through the moun
tains. On entering the mountains, bo-en
countered a large band of Shoshones, who
manifested a friendly spirit, expressed a de
site to be at peace, and thankfully accepted
tbe few presents he was able to make them.
On arriving at Bannack the Governor learn
ed, with regret, that the statement made by
the Indians of the wanton murder oftheir peo
ple by the whites was true; that they were fir
ed upon as they were sitting quietly andpeoce
fully in the streeU by adozeiPWhite men: and
that their sole object in visiting the place was
to give up a child (which they aid) which had
been demanded of them on tbe supposition
that it was a stolen white child.
The Governor saw the child, and had no
doubt that it was a half breed, and was right
fi« lly in their possession.
mile at Bantiack he ascertained that hands
of Flatheads had passed on the road by which
be came in search of the Bannacks and Shos
hones, for the purpose of stealing their horses
and making war upon them.
All the Indians he met daring his absence
appeared to be desirous of forming a treaty
with the United States, and heioformed them
that when the Commissioners were ready to
n.eet them that he would send a messenger to
them and inform them of the time and place
for them to assemble.
From reliable sources the Indian Bureau is
advised that butforthe conduct of the unprin
cipled whites peace would prevail to a greater
extent than It now does among the Indian

We need not say how sorely we regret this
disaster. It comes, too, unexpectedly, for
we had just received such assurances of the
strength of Vicksburg as to have given us
considerable confidence- in its safety. We
certainly did not anticipate so early a redac
It is now manifest that the assurances we
have referred to, like too much of the news
that comes from that quarter, were without
foundation. Indeed, instead of the ample
■tores of food In Vicksburg of which we were
.told, we are informed through private sources,
that flour sold in the beleagnred city at four
hundred dollars per barrel, and com at three
dollars per ear. The probability Is that Gen,
Pemberton fought until there was no. food
left for his army and the citizens, and' des
pairing of relief from General Johnston,' lie
could do nothing but capitulate. The favor
able terms gtanted him, show how anxious
Grant was t"terminate the siege without
another fight. •
The people are asking, and the world will
ask, where was Gen. Johnston, and what part
did he perform in this grand tragedy, In an
' ewer it will be eald, that,"with an army larger
than won the first battle of Manassas, be
made not & motion, he struck not a blow, for
the relief of-Vicksburg. For nearly seven
weeks be sat down in sound of the conflict,
and he fired not a gun. He heard the con
fident declarations with which the besieged
animated their courage—“ Never mind!—
Jobmtcn is coming*!’* but Johnston never
c»met He did not so much os harass tbe ene
my, butlefc Grant to pursue the work with
out Interruption. If Mosby and bis little
band bad been there. Instead of Johnston and
hibarmy,.Graut would not have enjoyed such'
impunity. Johnston has been supposed to
have some profound plan, some brilliant
strategy, which at the proper time he would

to sit by and see Yickaburg fall, aud'send ua

In a book just published, under the title of

her meeting in Egypt with Mr. Buckle but a
few weeks before his death.
At Cairo we had the good fortune to fall lu
With one whose premature death a few weeks
later now makes tbe souvenir of the encoun
ter now doubly interesting. This was Buckle,
who. in bis researches for fresh materials for
his “History of Civilization,” was now on
bis way back from a journey up tbe Nile. He'
bud, on his arrival lu Egypt, brought letters
of introduction to tbe K.*a, so that, as they
were already acquainted, became almost im
mediately to call, and was asked to dinner on
an early day. I have known most of the cele

years back—of the time, lu a word, when
Sydney Smith rejoiced In his green, bright
old age, and Lutlrell and Rogers and Tommy
Moore were still capable of giving forth an
occasional llaih, and when the venerable Lord
Brougham, and yet more venerable Lord
Lyndburst, delighted in friendly and brilliant
sparring at dinner tables, whose hosts are
now in their half-forgotten graves, I have
known some brilliant talkers in Paris—Lam

the late Madame Emile de Glrardin. I knew
Douglass Jerrold; and T am still happy
enough to claim acquaintance with.certain

'well-known,it were perhaps invidious now
to mention. But, for inexhaustibility, versa
tility, memory and self-confidence, I never
met any to compete with Buckle. Talking
was meat, drink and sleep to him; he lived
upon talk. • He could keep pace witn any
given number ot interiocniers on any given
number of subjects, from tbe abetrusest point
on the abstrnsest science, to the lightest ieu

quietly, “it was only the mind that was want

Victims brtlie Late IV. X. Biot*
[From the N. T. Tribune, 20th.]
The Coroners have thus far held inquests
upon tbe bodies of C 6 of tbe victims to the
riot, and are still busy, and will, be for some
days. Out of these 66,63 were white and 4
colored; 44 were natives of Ireland, Bof
Germany,' 8 of the United States, 1 of Eng
land, lof Denmark, and 4 unknown. Eight
were boya between the ages of 8 and 12 years,
who were shot during tne riots in' Second
avenue and Thirty-first street. All of them
had been throwing stones a£ the police and
military, end had been cautioned to keep
away. Four were Irish women, -Shot while
urging their husbands and friends to fire
upon the police and troops. Two or three
were small children, who were at upper story
windows when the troops, out of mercy,
fired over the-beads of the rioters. Nearly all
the rest were men who were lighting in the
streets. Five, however, lost their lives at the
homing of the armory, corner of Second

Henry Ward Bfecbcr, in tlie
Crystal Palace*
From Mr, Beecher’s third letterto theN. Y.
Independent, we gather tbe following admira
ble description of the Sydenham Crystal Pal
ace :
I hate just returned from spending a day at
Sydenham Crystal Palace, and tbat account*
for tbe foregoing strain. The day was glorl
oas. Everybody had sold, “You must goto
Sydenham I** I bad read descriptions of it.
Yet, the meaning of it never dawned upon
me till to day—this most wonderful of all
modem English achievements. Even after
basing been at Chats worth, one of the Duke
of Devonshire** seals, reputed, hitherto, to
be the finest in the world for landscape-gar
dening—Sydenham is still more wonderful.
This great Crystal Palace, vast bat not mass
ive, spring* into such huge proportions,
with such a fine and " almost etheriai
structure, that you can scarcely believe
U to be more than a picture; or if a
veritable building, cue which the winds will
blow away. It is the very antithesis of castles
mid cathedrals. These impress you by their
solidity. They are mountains of stone, and
seem to be durable aa the mountains from
which the stone was hewn. Against their
huge walla Las dashed battle and wege, almost
lu vain. Time itself, that never raises its
siege, seems In vain, with wind, and art, and
frobt, to have assailed many mighty medieval
structures. And when you look upon them,
you feel the solidity, the massiveness. Bat
this film upon the sky—the gossamer spaa
last night by fairies, this glittering, luminous,
transparent specter of a palace I Can It be
real, durable, tangible?
• The grounds on which this etheriai pile Is
erecica are worthy of tbe vast jewcll which
they hold upon their bosom. There is every
variation of hue and slope. The gras* is
shaven close amf is as green and velvety as
only English grass can be. Cut into its green
are Innumerable beds of gorgeous flowers of
every hue. You*' are dazed and dazzled at
the wealth of flowers, the clamps of rhodo
peedron?, the belts, beds, and ribbons of
color, tbe circles of roses. I have traveled in
tbe prairies of the Great West, and seen the
sheets and billows of flowers that stretch with
endless profusion there. There are no such
wild and extravagant abundance hero. It
was as if the flower angel had sounded the
trumpet, and a prairie ol flowers had rushed
to camp to be brigaded and marshaled; and
now, lu ranks ana squadrons, in files or com* :
panics, they carry their floral lances to this
innocuous war of beauty! Lakes, fountains,
and pools abound. The most gorgeous dream
of the Arabian nights would turn pale and
fade out in the presence of this substantial
glory of horticultural skill. If I had had
time, I should have been amazed at the litera
ture of color spread out here. •
These flowers 1 had seeu, all of them, grow
ing loose and disconnectedly. Here they
were gatbereu into artistic groups by similar
ities or contrasts. 1 had seen them a scatter
ed alphabet ot beauty, every letter by itself.
Deie they were composed into words and
sentences. My eye drank and was drunk with
color. I turned from the grounds to the
hull ding, and from it again to the grounds.
0 happy people, who can come hither so
■ easily! For, the immortal glory of this en
terprise is tins, that this palace and grounds,
that have no parallel or equal in the world,are
presented by the wealth of London to the
common people! Ido not believe that so ex
tiaordinarya combination ot rational pleas
ure tor every sense and sentiment of man was
ever before combined. Not for the Govern
ment, not for Mugs or nobles, nor fora rich
and refined class, but for tbe great common
people baa this miracle of beauty and use been
wrought I
Within la every variety of food for bodily
hunger, capitally served, aimple for those
who need or can afford little, and sumptous
for those who choose it. Every provision is
made for the incidental wants of throngs of
men, women and children. But .now comes
the marvels. You live in Egypt and walk in
the temples. You stand In Greek hails. You
ste the altars and statues, the Parthenon, the
friezes, the gods. You enter a Roman dwell
ing. All is reproduced as in the days, of
Auguries. You stand in th£ gorgeous Alham
bra, in a pompeiiau house, in the Byzantine
court, In the Norman, the early English, the
full Goihie buildings or courts. The illusion
is complete. Time is dead. The old has
come back, and is neW. Jhy, distance Is
«ndt-d. You seem to be ■rßfferent ages and
widely different countries'all at the very same
time. You loose your identity, whether yon
are ancient or modern—whether you are at
Athens, or Rome, or Byzantium, you cannot
telL Or is It agoigeous dream? Is thfr
some sorceress kaleidoscope, 'whose every
turn rattles the elements of various ages and
countries into strange conjunctions t -
The illusion Is increased by the unity of all
climates in the vegetable kingdom. Under this
glass hemisphere the temperate and torrid
zones dwelltogetherin peace. There is room
for everything. As yon stand at one end, you
look down through a crystal aisle more man
sixteen hundred leet, and over this long, lu
minous path there is no roof until you rise a
hundred and seventy-fourfeefrin the center,
and a hundred and ten on either side of it.
Along this vast track are gathered the rarest
vegetable productions of Tbc.globe, growing
in coil, or air, or water. Vines cover the iron
columns, and spread out their filmy branches
along the connecting rods. Huge pendant
baskets filled with trailing plants, swing in
tbe air at hights that bide their, support, abd
cause them to seem self supported. Marble
lined reservoirs of water, artificially
biated, ‘are covered with acquatic
lilies. From step to step, all the way down,
you come upon the most magnificently
grown shrubs and plants and' trees. They
line the whole long interior, so that you imv
gine yourself looking down an avenue of
gome extraordinary forest, filled with under
growth, shrubs, vines, and mosses. Out of
irese green mosses, at every step, jpeep the
most exquisite creations of art.* There arc
casta of almost every renowned or beautiful
statue in Europe, arranged in long sequence.
All the sculpture that you have ever seen la
engravings, read in books, heard- of in con
versation, meets you in this palace of mira
cßb Tbe treasures are eudlesa. You cannot
in a day even glance at them. 'You leave
more things unseen than you look upon.
Every step opens recesses full of wonders.
Pic’nre galleries flow along the side*
as if they would nearer end. The por
trait gallery presents you- with almost every
historic face. Do you need to read of these
things? Turn aside into the library with
thousands of volumes. Sit 'down in the
reading room, which, though several thou
sand people are threading the building, is a*
quiet-os if it were a lonesome bower in the
woods! Or are you tired in eye aed foot?
Sit down and listen to a very noble band that
yonder Is rendering classic music skillfully.
This marvellous variety gives you rest by
change. If sculpture falls, there is* archi
tecture; and of that variety ruunlog through
all the schools of time. Are you weary of
this? Try color on the canvas. Do yon
weary of this ? Will you tone a walk around
marble-bound lakes, or among palms and
gigantic ferns, or among clove and cinnamon,
pepper and ginger, tea and coffee plants ? Or
would you rid pourself of company?
Go ■ out Into the grounds. By some one
of the walks you can in a . moment be
hidden lu secluded, leafy covers, or you may
seek the lake and artificial island, and see tbe
geological periods represented in strata, and
the ante diluvian animals reproduced in form,
11 not in life. From some such stroll 1 return
ed and dined. I could not make up my mind
whether I was an Egyptian dining at Cairo
witlithe old Copts, ora Greek, or a Roman,
or Goth. I never once suspected that! was a
Yankee. eaUogstout English beef and pastry.
This duty done, we go now to tbe Rcoais
ranee Court to see'the statues by Michael An
gtlo! Hero are Day and Night, with Julius
de Medici sitting noble above and between
them. Opposite is Dawn and Twilight, with
Lorenzo de Medici sublimely thoughtful be
tween them. There is the slave, opposi'e to
it the Madonna and child, aFieta, a Christ, bat
most grand of all, tbe Moses! Theseareolthe
full size of tbe originals, andfill you with more
pleasure and wonder since they are gathered
Intoonegrand companyandflll the whole air
with the spirit of their artist-creator. While
thus walking and musing,the grand organ
in the cave is filling all the air with its sol
emn harmonies! Where else did any one ever
gaze upon Michael Angelo’s collected sculp
tures to the sound or grand organ music?
We never know to what proportions our joys
may rise until we have experienced them in
the midst of solemn music. *At such a dis
tance that all sense of the material instrument
is lost, solemn music seems to be a voice out
of the spirit world. It brings to us a call
from the Infinite, and connects ns with it.
Our joys seem no more mortal. They are re
lated to the etcrnaland spiritual, and partake
of their nature. They are preludes and pre
sciences of immortality. The soul takes as
surance that its most precious experiences are
not transient and perishing. However si
lesced for a time, joy shall come again, and
in the harmony ol a better sphere, and roll
forever in undisturbed and inseparable har

Tbe Gobblers Gobbled,
[Frotn the N. O. Era, 11th.]
On Saturday last a party of forty Texas cav
alry came up to our outposts on the other
side of the river under a flag of truce, escort
ing a number of onr paroled prisoners. It
seems they came right up to our lines with
the prisoners In a very unmilitary style, not
halting as is usual at a respectful distance and
sending tbe flag forward for a parley. The
prisoners were duly received by the officers
la command at the. outpost, and after, ex
change of courtesies, tbe rebel escort took its
departure. It rained that forenoon heavily.
About dork a dash was made by a detach
ment of the enemy’s cavalry upon the pickets
with the Intention of surprising and captur
ing them; but our boys were folly prepared
for the emergency, and succeeded in catting
off and capturing the entire party. When
brought in they were discovered to be the
same escort that had brought onr paroled
men in under the flag of .truce. They had
concealed .themselves in the neighborhood
during the da], after perfurmlpg their truce
duties,-and knowing the position of the pick
ets, congratulated themselves on an easy per
formance of sc brilliant an achievement as
tbdsurprise and capture of one of the Union
outposts. Bat they counted without tteie.
host.' Col. Davis’ Texas* cavaly, having sus
pected something of this kind, had bid their
jilons and formed a counterplot. The conse
quence was, the Union Texans captured the
rebel Texans—the gobblers were gobbled.—
and the entire truce party are now prisoners
in this city. We do not say they violated
their truce. Wit they might at least have re
turned to their camp before mibw any w.
tile demonstration.
Cheering: for McClellan and

■When the party gave the cheers-for Mc-
Clellan, in front ot Lis realdcnco, they also
gave cheers and a hip for Jeff Davis. ‘“Fer
