LETTER FROM JOHN M. BOTTS,
i '
How He .was Arrested and
Robbed by the Rebels.
TEE EVILS OF COSTEUEBiTE BILE.
WHAT HE THINKS OF THE WAR.
On.the 18th ultimo, John Minor Botts ad
dressed a letter to the Richmond Examiner, a
copy of which has since been obtained for
publication by the correspondent of the Asso
ciated Press with the Amy of the Potomac.
In this letter, dated at Auburn, Culpepper
county, Virginia, Mr. Botts enters an em
phatic protest against his arrest and the de
struction of bis property by the • rebels’, and
flatly denounces the evils of Confederaterule,
After some preliminary remarks, in contra
diction of fldsc reports. concerning
he says:
ROW THE ACCOUNT STANDS—MR. BOTTS*
WRONGS.
Let us see how the account stands. On
my port I have done nothing from first to
lasi uf which the Government can complain,
unless it be that I have not become demoral
ized aud have inadc no concessions to democ
racy, and have none to make' hereafter, and
because I have not chosen to follow blindly
wherever democracy might choose to lead.
“ On the other hand, of what have I to com
plain? First, the legislative ■power
Government has been especially directed
against me, while I-was leading the moat re
tired and secluded life, as was clearly admit
ted by Mr. Henry 8. Foote, at the following
session of Congress, when he . said he had
been induced to vote for the declaration of
martial law and suspension of the writ of
haU as rvrj/us upon a representation of . the
condition of things supposed to exist in the
ncljililtorbood of the city of Richmond, but
which turned out to .be entirely ground
less.
“Secondly, the.power of .the executive
branch of government has been exerted
against me when, under this detestable, .un
written, unknown code called martial law,
upon no charge preferred before the Court of
. Inquiry, they had me arrested in my had, be
tween the hours of 'midnight and daybreak,
hurried me off to a dirty, filthy negro jail,
where 1 was kept in solitary confine
ment for eight weeks, when, with all the vig
ilance and research of their numerous detec
tives,* they could find nothing upon which to
hinge a charge; and now comes a second
arrest, without a charge, whilst the army It
self has. been turned loose upon me to de
stroy my property, .by design, and by order
of officers in high command, which I can es
tablish if I can procure their arrest and trial
by. court martial: nnderwhicb ordermyyard,
garden and cornfieldsliaye been ruthlessly in
vaded, the fencing of each torn down to the
gonna, and all- converted into a general
under command of Captain Randolph, and
when Dr. Kidwell —with whom I had been
until ten o’clock, picking up and nursing the
wounded men of both parties, more than
twenty of whom were brought to my bouse
—remonstrated with them, they said It was
wrong, and should not have done it, bat they
were ordered to destroy * whatever they*
damn pleased ;* and upon this being repeated
by Dr. K. to Captain u. be neither affirmed
nor denied that such orders had been given.
“ From which scenes of violence, together
with the effects drodneed by my arrest on
the next day, one of my daughters has been
ill of nervous typhoid lever ever since; and
not only has my fencing been tom down and
and destroyed In every direction, bat some
twenty-five or thirty of my best hogs have
been shot down, and I bare not been left one
ear of my entire crop of com; all of which
could uot be used was carried off and de
stroyed. And now X challenge any and every
man of the Southern Confederacy to come
forward with any. charge that can be made
against me for anything said or done for
which their government or its army can just
ly Icomploin. And but for the protection
non oflered me by a guard from the head
quarters of Geni. K. E. Lee, none can tell to
what a condition I should have been reduced.
WHAT HE TRINES OF THE ORIGINATORS OF THE
WAR.
“Have I then, Mr. Editor, think you, had
much reason for attachment or devotion to a
Government by which I have been thus treat
ed? You complain of the treatment Mr.
Yallandigham has received at the hands of
his Government. He made many violent
speeches, in which he took active and strong
ground against his Government, and for this
he was sent among his friends, as they sup
posed.. But I have done nothing, taken no
part, but maintained firmly and consistently,
as I shall continue to do, my own private
opinions and the convictions of my best judg
ment, which has not been controlled' by any
considerations of selfishness, ambition, or
fear, as I wrote the Secretary of War whilst I
was confined in McDaniel’s negro jail, in the
Spring ofl8C2: and, because I cannot surren
der these convictions, am I thus •to be op
pressed and persecuted by the Government
and its army? I want no better vindication
for having withheld my approval of this war
than is to be found in the fact that there is
uot one of those who aided in bringing it on
that would do it, with their present expe
rience, it had to be gone over again, or If
they could have foreseen what has followed,
all of which I did foresee and did foretell;
and if any man with brains in his bead and a
heart in his bosom says be would, then I say
flatly I don’t believe him.

General Meade took his dinner at my tabic,
I hereby make it known to all whom it may

“ And now. let me’ inquire, has martial law
-been declared again ? and if not, when, where,
how, and from whom did General Stuart de
rive the authority to arrest me, or any other
citizen, for any offense whatever, and retain
me as a prisoner of State ? If any charge was
to be preferred against me for a civil offense,
where were the civil authorities? and why
was not complaint lodged with them upon
affidavit, as the law requires ? How camo% a
private, peaceable citizen, subject to the mil
itary authority of General Stuart ? and why
was I not allowed, if I thought proper, to ap
peal to his superior in Command-General Lee
—against this flagrant usurpation of power
and most inexcusable instance of fiUse im
prisonment?
“If I mistake not, Congress, by an express
vote, refused to grant these high prerogatives
of dictatorial power to Mr. Davis. Howls
it, then, that General Staart undertakes, first,
to establish a martial law for himself, ana
then virtually to suspend the writ of habeas
corpus by a denial of my right to appeal to his
superior in command?
_ “If such power can be exercised by Gen.
Stuart with impunity, , with whom and where
does the power stop I "To how low a grade of
military authority docs it descend ? -And I
may further ask, why, of all the gentlemen in
and around the court boose who entertained
Federal officers, was I alone to be selected
for the exercise of this military power, for
ibis indignity and outrage? These are all
questions of grave interest to the liberty of
every citizen, that cannot, and shall not, be
slurred over, if there is any Justice In the
military department of this government, or
independence to be found in the judiciary of
this State.

wrongs, injuries and indignities which have
been heaped npon me. But lam not a span

any master, nor to lick Die hand that smites
me, nor am I Christian enough when one

of persecution, and can find no protection
from the law, then will I protect myself;
this I cannot do against the government or
against the army: but I .can and will do it
when the law, military and civil, both fail
me, against any one man that this Confed
eracy can boast.
when I purchased my present.:home, it
was to seek retirement and obscurity, to get
ont of the way of the world and to follow lor

among kind and friendly neighbors, with
whom it has been my good fortune to secure
as large a share of respect and esteem as any
one who lias ever Uvea in the country, and in
this' condition of things it was that, in imita

HIS DETERMINATION. *
“And now, Mr. Editor, in conclusion, let
me say that the press may continue to . mis

and thrown into dungeons: my fencing may
be torn down and destroyed; my crops may

the responsibility that rests upon those who
have brought this whirlpool of desolation and ■

I depart from the position I have taken of

adhere firmly and consistently to the opin
ions end principles that 1 have maintained for
thirty years, and if to prefer living as I did
before the war to living as I have done since
the war makes me a traitor, then a traitor’s
life let me live, or a traitor’s death let medic.
I am respectfully yours,
..*■ John M. Botts.
P. S.—Since the above was written a copy
of the Examiner has readied me containing
the following announcement:
“ The battle took place bn. the firm of John
Minor Botts. * . * • * Wc may here remark
that the property on the fium of this extraor?
dinary individual, of whom the Confederate
States stand in such fear, hadbecn religiously
respected by the Yankees: whereas the conn
try around was little better than a wilder
ness, his fences and. crops were,untouched.
Bat that night made a, change in its condi
tion. Three thousand Confederate' cavalry'
bivouacked- there after the battle, and fed
their horses, in his cornfield. The next mor-.
Ding there were very few fence rails and very
little com left. The men were heard to say
while building high their fires, ‘Pile on,
boys; they are n Gibing but damned old Un-:
ion rails,* ” \ ,
I am glad to avail myself of the testimony of
this “leaky vessel,*’ who fully confirms what
I have said abovel but although he docs not
state what is true in regard to the general de
struction of property In the neighborhood,’
for it gives me great pleasure to say that a.
guard was fbrmshed to every family that"
asked for it, all of whose property was amply 1
protected, as every bne'in the neighborhood
■will testily. Yet he certainly states what is
true in regard to the general destruction of
my property; and I must say that the achieve
ment of three thousand cavalry conquering
one man and a cornfield is one of which in
the fntnro they can take no great pride when
thi-ir prejudices and passions shall have sub
sided. I-.--.,-
Another article has also appeared in the
2>ifj>atch\ recommending ihy imprisonment or.
banishment, which is altogether unworthy of
notice.! I will only say that whatever i other;
difficulties I may labor under,! do not esteem
it a misfortune that I have no soldiers at my
command, to turn loose upon any cltizen,nor
aids at my elbow to bring them into discred
it with the people, thank God. ‘When there! a
a necessity for it, I can do my own fighting."

A BIG PLOT DISCOVERED.
, ‘ War Jb always fruitful of plota. The Yan
kees have discovered one in Canada, and onr
vigilant authorities think they have discover
cd one hero in Richmond, which will prove
an offset to the “marc’s nest” among the
lakes. In both instances the plotters had the
same object in view—the release of prisoners
-rand both were unsuccessful—nipped in the
.budding.
\ The .Yankee counter-plot to release the
prisoners held In Blchmond,and facilitate their
escape In. the-indiscriminate slaughter of
guards and populace, was brought premature
ly to light through intercepted correspon
dence, and its machinations involved the
prisoners at all the prisons, at the Libby and
‘its tributaries on Belle Isle, and at Castle
Thunder. On a night prearranged they were
to rise en mast* at the tolling of the midnight
hour, overpower the comparatively few
sentinels on duty, and possessing all the
arms within their reach,- more at a
gdouble-quick” in .the direction of WU
, liamsburgh and Yorktown, before reaching
winch they were to be mot and succored by a
large cavalry force of the enemy; also in the
secrets of the plot, and who, on the same
eventful night, were to moke a rapid raid in
the direction of Richmond and meet* their
friends half way. The besom of dcstrnctiou
was to mark the track of their, triumphal
march from ’bondage.-‘‘Richmond and the
prisons were to blaze at tbdr backs,.and the
darning homesteads that dot the WiUlams
burgh road were to form their girdle—“ a pil
lar of lire by night, a cloud by day.”
Thus journeying, like the fleeing Israelites
led by Moses ont Trom Egypt and the bond
age of Pharaoh, the Yankees were to reach
the promised land before and spoil their ene
mies behind. Neal Dow, it is said, was the
chosen Moses of the excursion, and that he
was seeking. to hasten the distribution of
Yonkeo clothing and rations to the prisoners,
in order that they might start out well shod
and clothed, and with foil bellies and haver
sacks for the journey.
What a pity that such a lively programme
should come to naught, and all through an
intercepted letter! .
Wo are informed that, as soon as the exist
ence of each a plot was mode apparent to the
authorities, they were fully alive to the exi
gencies of the honr, and equal to its emer
gencies. The guards around the prisons and
on Belle Isle were immediately donbled, tmd
the citizen militia, by order ot the Governor,
nightly paraded, and made a show of exceed
ing ’ strength in the vicinity of the prisons.
Additional pieces of cannon were planted on
the; heights overlooking Belle Isle, and the
fullest preparations made to blow the Yan
kees ont of existence upon the first symptom
of revolt The plot withered under these ex
traneous influences, the Yankees looked con
tented in their prison quarters, and Spears’
cavuliy did not dash out of WilliamsbnrglL
The. “ tempest” was “in a teapot,” and “all’s
well that, ends welt” •
The plot to liberate the prisoners, overpow
er or murder the guards, and bam as much
as possible of Richmond, which plot was ven
tilated. in these columns yesterday, it seems
was first disclosed to the authorities through
one of the Yankee prisoners; and an investi
gation immediately Instituted, disclosed the
startling fact that such a plan was really on
foot; and that Its timely discovery alone pre
vented the attempt being made.
Tiie first revelations'were made about the
27th, of October, and again about the 31st, ad
ditional and more positive evidence was
bronghtto light through various combina
tions early in november. .Soon after the plot
was deemed serious enough to squash before
it came to a heading, and it was accomplished
in such a manner as to indicate to the ten or
twelve thousand conspirators that their game
was in our hands, and that the authorities
were masters of the situation.
Thanks to a providential Interposition, the
tbo authorities forewarned ore forearmed, and
the day or night when such a revolt could
have been successful Is post.

. The most earnest and vehement of all Con

The United States and the European
Congress.
• The ‘Washioglon correspondent of the X.
Y. Tribune , under date of Nov. 25th, says:
The ground, of complaint which foreign
governments had, at one time, against ns on
account of the war, which so deeply affected
the working classes of Europe, and even
threatened them with political disturbances,
has censed to exist The sky Is on the other
side of the Atlantic, as bright and serene as
we may wish. - “We might then, as regards
our relations abroad, live with the assurance
that nothing contrary to the policy we pur*
sue win be. attempted against ns, had not the
European Congress—convened by the Empe
ror of thePrench, to settle European difficul
ties-—revived the drooping spirits of the reb
els; and gave rise'to a certain feeling of unea
siness among the friends of the North.
To fully: appreciate this, U is necessary, per
haps. that you should bo enlightened upon
:the Influences which men of high standing
say will govern the Imperial Congress, The
idea of] the Emperor, ft seems, Is to call be
fore that tribunal all questions which threaten
or interest the peace and prosperity of Eu
rope and of the world. In the estimation of
Ms friends, this Congress, in its capacity of rep
resentative of all the £reat national and inter
national questions, will; attempt to come to
on understanding upon points of policy rela
ting to the interests of all partlgs concerned,
and to arrive at a settlement oftfll difficulties,

upon -which this Congress is called to pro

they attach to their identity with the Euro

dence Tfhich they do not disguise. They
loudly proclaim that the pacification of North
America is, in a sense, as essential to the world
os the settlement of any other question; they
bring Southern statistics to the support of
their opinion—ln a word, they do all they can
to conciliate the commercial and industrial in
terests of Europe, especially among the Ger
mans, who have snflered perhaps more than
others from our civil strife. They are now
getting up, to be introduced before the Euro
pean Congress, a petition in which the history
of their straggle against the, North,
the heroism < of ' the Southerners, the
resources of the South, the political
necessity of a division of powers, and of an
equilibrium i of. governments in the New
World, will ho set forth with all the force and
eloquence "the desperate representatives of a

is supposed, wul take place in the month of

I need not tell you that—notwithstanding
English opposition and jealousy—the Imperial
Congress wOl be held. It will be held not so
much because of a wish of the Invited sover

AUhoughnotdispoecd to favor or recommend pat

sons why a man may not testify to the beneflta he be
lieves himself to have received from any simple pre
paration, In the Dope that he may thus contribute to
tho benefit of others.
I do this more readily In regard to Hoofland’s Ger
man Bitters, prepared by Dr. C. 51. Jackson, of this
city, because 1 was prejudiced against them for many
yean*, under the impression that they were chiefly an
alcoholic mixture. lam indebted to my friend Kobe

proper testa and for cnc •‘•tragement to tr*: them when
enfterlne from great nud louscontinucd debility. The -

of the present year, was followed by evident relief ana
