THEITBIGNTOPBLAOESOLniERS*
Congress Is still pottering, every now and !
then, over the question of paying black sol
diers; being In deadly fear lest they should
receive—not the fair amount they may be
worth—but as much as tbo white soldiers of
the same tank and sendee.. If the white men
get ten dollars per'month, the black may *
have seven; bat If whites -receive sixteen,
the blocks arc allowed thirteen.* * A late law
reported to the House from .the Senate cquaj :
Izcs the pay, as the dispatch leaves us to in
fer,' but tacks on a provision, that‘three dol
lars of the. black man's wages, shall be re
served torhls family or dependent relatives.
Now, What .earthly reason, cau, any man
show for any such provision? 'Why not re
serve three dollars of the other men's wages
for a like purpose? Have white men-no
wives and children; or mothers and grand
mothers f - Or do all the wives and children
of white men take'.care of themselves; dr
arc they taken-care of by husbands- and fa
thers? It is time this fooling with the black
man was done with. If he earns wages, why
not pay them to him? If be earns as much as
a man of any other color, why not pay him
as much? t , .
‘ There Is a reason for excluding black men
from the higher grade of military offices, at
least as a general role; because such officers
need an amount of education which the
blacks have been forbidden to obtain.. The
presumption therefore Is—and the presump
tion is sustained by the facts—that he Is not
competent tor the higher grade of offices;
not- -on- account of- his color, but of
the Ignorance, which . has been. fas
tened upon him by reason of- it. “Yet
if competency be shown for command,
in any particular cose, there Is no reason why
command should not bo conferred. Robert
Small exhibited his ability to command the
steamboat Planter; and we have never heird •
of any evil resulting from bestowing it upon,
him. ’
But does this inability to read operate in'
the same way in regard to private soldiers?!
If It does, we ought to apply it in all coses:
where 'it exists.. We all know" that largej
bodies of our most active votera’make their!
mark instead of writing their names; but it ;
has never-been' heard of in Congress, os a
reason for reducing their wages, as soldiers
or sailors. - The testimony on the other band
is that it is no disqualification whatever; bat
the blacks perform all their duties,'
lighting included, as well as the average of
white men; and that as artillerymen in par
ticular they are very superior. The last dis
patch from Washington , says that the black
brigade of Burnside's army “marched better
than the white ones." The last paper re
ceived from Richmond contains the rebel
opinion, that the blacks will prove <4 as good
soldiers as the riff-raff of Ireland and Ger
many."
The real truth Is we have got so In the
habit of estimating the black man from the
standpoint of slavery, that we are Incapable
ol doing anything else,
TbU extreme of opinion on that side has
begotten an opposite one on the other. Ne-*
grophobia has produced a few cases of No
grophllism. As the first makes him a great
deal worse or inferior than others, on account
of his color, the last mokes him a great deal
better, and hence may insist that you have
either got to bate the block man outright as
a loathsome reptile, or to. love him as a
superior being. You must enslave and
whip him, or you must many, with
his race. And these two extremes
of opinion materially support each other.
But the truth L we are in no danger of
doing cither. We will neither marry the ne
gro nor abuse him. All that is wanted is,, to.
Jet him alone, os we do any other man. We
• are to treat him, so far as we have relations
with btm, as we treat, others to
his intelligence, and according to his politi
cal, social, and moral value. There never
was a greater humbug embodied In any
aphorism, than that the negro “must betaken
care*of.*.’ - - ;
The truth is there is no man in the nation
of his grade of intelligence, that can take
tetter care of himself than he. This is
shown by an abundance of testimony from
all quarters. A .small list of blocks peti
tioned thc President, of late, fortherigbt to
Tote in Louisiana, on the 'ground that they
owned together, fifteen millions of property;
and this property had beengained in a Slave
State, where all the prejudice and
disability - possible was heaped upon
them. Those who have to do with the
statistics of crime and poverty in
our cities know well that the blacks come in
lor a smaller share of attention on these ac
counts than some other nationalities. The
Government is well aware that the contra
bands about ‘Washington have. not been a
public expense, but have actually made mon
eyforthe Government, when any thing like a
fair chance has been. offered them. Why,
then, continue to reserve wages In this lu
cutting way? Pay the black troops fair
wages— and pay them —pud you will not need
to look after their mode oC expending them.
Bo them simple justice and they will seldom
need your charity. ~
BAKEOG IS PART OF THE WAR :
01AK1NG POWER.
Banking implies two elements, both of :
'rcbicb arc almost' indispensable, and always
valuable to any government in time or war,
viz: a loan from the people, and a currency .
lor tie people. In all considerable wars
gold disappears as a medium ol currency and
exchange, and the paper of the war-making
power must supply Us place, for no govern
ment can pay the expenses of a heavy war as
they are incurred. Hence the power to ran
banks of Issue and to create a paper currency
is ol necessity one of the. attributes of the
■war-making power. Indeed this U the main
origin of banks of issue and deposit The
necessities of the governments engaged in
the wars of the Crusades, gave rise to the
Bank of Venice, the first bank in Europe;
founded In U7L The necessities of the En
glish government during tbcrelgn of William
and Mary,' and the extreme difficulty it expe-, -
rienec'din raising thuds for conducting the
war with France, then pending,- gave rise in
like manner to the Bank of England, estab
lished in ICO4, the capital of which consists
mainly of a permanent loan, now amounting
to about £12,000,000, by the people through
the bank to .the government, represented by
certificates of stock (consols in part) and by
bills of the Bank of .England. "The restric
tions on the other ancient banka, of issue,
and against all new once, are such as sub
stantially to limit to tho Bank -of England,
i. e., to the English government the privi
lege of taxing, the people, by furnishing the
realm with a paper currency.
The Bank of France, with its benches in
the principal towns, monopolises the bank
ing business ihFrance, :.s well of deposit and
of discount asofissne, and.has been'for a
century and a half part of the constitution of
the Government. Both the Bank of England
and the Bank ol France are elements of In
conceivable strength, stability and perma
nency to their respective Governments, nei
ther of which could afford for a moment to
part with these sconrccs of the sinews of
war.
The proprietory Interest of the people in
these Bonks os the holders of' stock depend*
tnt for Heroine upon the maintenance of
their rcepcctlveGovcrnmente, binds the peo
ple and Government together by the strong
ties which attach a creditor, to his debtor,
and Insures those powers dike against Inter
nal rebellion and foreign invasion. The/ may
• change dynasties, hut the nationality re
mains, and no attempt has ever been made
.vlo disrupt and divide them in such way as to
a repudiation of their national debt.
or currency.
A heavy war with either Great Britain or
France at any time daring the past fifty years
would have compelled ns to extemporize, a
National Banking system which would place
ns as nearly as possible hn a financial par
with them. It was for want of snch a sys
tem that the continental paper of onr Bevo
lationaty "War became worthless, almost rain
ing par cause. Before the close of the war,
however, on May 17,1781, a plan for a Na
tional Bank was brought before Congress by
the mostskiUfnl of our Revolutionary finan
ciers, Robert Morris of Pennsylvania, and
.adopted. u lt formed a most important a axil
laxy In aid of the finances of the government
to the final conclusion of the war.”
Notwithstanding that the earnest advocacy
- of Hamilton secured the adoption of a more
improved .System upon the
adoption of the constitution, and which the
financial sagacity of Gallatin would fain have
continued,-the, laxlfy of peace lessened the
apparenthecd.of. financial strength In the
-federal government, and the bank died in
1511 by the cacpiration of Ito charter, * - ,
The necessities of" Ihe war with‘Cheat
Britain, 1812-15,- again revived It, and it wait
• into operation with, signal advantage jtp, the
’ 'finances of: the country until 1836,.when.' the
tendency to abate from the 'powers of-the
f general government, natural, to a. time of
r ■ peace, caused it to he suffered, again'to ex
.. pite by. the terms of its charter; These facts 4
plainly illustrate that the banking power is
one of the elements of the war making pow- j
■ { er—an essential attribute of sovereignty and a
function of government. As such, par own
sud all government* have 'monopolized H as
the necessities of war demanded, or in time
of peace leasedfcnt its privileges to individu
als and corporations, as the necessities of
war became subordinate to tbo conveniences
of commerce.
■Nothing In political economy can be more
apparent, however, than that, in a great war
like the present, it Is the doty of the country
to invest thegoveftunent with all those flam
dal powers, which all modern governments,
including our own, have found necessary In
time of war, and which all except opr own,
have deemed essential even In times of peace.
Our failure as a people to comprehend this
fact is now prostrating our currency and
crippling the financial ability of the Govern
ment to conduct the war, by compelling it
to compete in the prerogative of providing
the country with a currency, with all the
banks. and. bankers who have the means to.
get banknotes engraved. '
FRANCE AND BIEXICO.*.
What the intentions of Napoleon with re
spect to Mexico may be, It does not yet fhlly
appear. It would not agree , with wha’t wo
know of the determination and persistence of
his character, to suppose that when Maximil
ian is "seated upon his throne, and the French
forces arc mostly withdrawn,'Mcxico is tbbe
leftto workout the problem of her destiny
solely nude?, the direction of the new Em
peror and her own people, without, any for
tber interference from Prance. Napoleon
has never yet been known to leave or forsake
any nation or people In whose welfare or af
fairs he has deemed it politic or benevolent
to Interfere. The French etlU occupy Rome,
and however lond and continual may be the
French Emperor's declarations that ho wish
es Italians to govern Italy, it Is plain to all
the world, that any changes or movements
which ore made and carried out in that King
dom, are more under his control than under
that of the Italian people. It will doubtless
prove to be the same in Mexico. - The new
Emperor Maximilian will recalvo the system
of policy which he is to maintain and enforce
from France; and Napoleon will not give up
his abiding and controlling supervision and
direction of Mexican affairs, so long as he
can exercise It Indeed bia published state
ments of his purposes; which he has never
modified or retracted, require that ho should
persevere in maintaining this paramount in
fluence over the politics of Mexico. He ex
plicitly avowed the objects of the Mexican
expedition to be to render Mexico forever
favorable to France through gratitude and.
Interest; to establish the influence of France
In the centre of America; to give new out
lets to French, commerce, andnewmarkets.
for its industry; and to restore to the Latin
race on this side ofthe ocean its prestige and
power. These objects are not consistent
' with any withdrawal of French force and in
fluence from Mexico; they rather require a
permanent possession .and paramount con
trol of the country and its affairs. And it
may not be doubted that Napoleon intends,
whatever may bo the appearance of things,
that France shall retain and secure a lasting
hold on Mexico,forwithont it thcproclaimcd
objects of the expedition cannot be accom
‘ pliehed.
This is directly in the face of the Monroe
doctrine, and will be regarded os more par
ticularly aimed at us, and more clearly an
affront, when wc state another object
which the French Emperor clearly avows he
.Intended to effect by seizing Mexico. That
was “to oppose to the too great expansion
“ of the Anglo-Saxon race In the New World
“an insurmountable barrier, by restoring
“ the Latin race in Mexico." Not only is the
Monroe doctrine directly repudiatedandvio-
lalcd by this attempt to Interfere with the no*
tional affaire of an independent people on
this continent, but the interference is boldly
declared to be made for the purpose of op
posing and limiting our power and Influence,
This being so, and we see ho rcason'for any
other conclusion, there are but two ways la
which a collision with France can be avoided.
If she should yield to onr remonstrances and
protests, listen to the reiteration of the Mon
roe doctrine, be persuaded of the. justice of
onr views, and abandon the scheme which
has hitherto been so persistently and is now
so strenuously carried forward, the conflict
may be avoided. Bat to suppose that Napo
leon w ill ever do this is to show an utter igno
rance of the character of the man; is to believe
that be will at this late day turn over a new'
leaf, and at the pame time abandon a well
weighed and long matured plan, with dearly
cherished hopes, and a strong ambitibn to cs
tabUsEFrench mts, arms and influence on
this continent. The only other chance of
escape from collision with France is that we
abandon the Monroe doctrine and permit the
entrance of European diplomacy, politics and
power into the affairs of this Continent; and'
that we submit to it when it comes in the
most open and defiant manner, shakes a
Bccptrc'in our very ficcs, draws a line from
'sea to sea, builds upon itan Insurmountable
barrier, and haughtily declares that thus far
we may come but no farther. It cannot be
supposed that the French Emperor does not
know folly the nature and extent of the gross
affront he has put npon the nation by this
Mexican business. Bnt he knew that we had
onr hands fall with the rebellion; and be
knows that to-day the rebels are his .fast
friends and allies, and look to him for recog
nition and triumph. Wo can only endure In
patience and bide onr time. *
WHO SAVED KENTUCKY?
It was reserved for a rebel and traitor to
pay involuntarily the highest tribute of
praise which has ever been awarded to the
much praised and greatly loved Henry -Clay.
Pollard, of Richmond, in his smart, reckless,
lying Southern History of tbe War, says;
» 4 The persistent adhesion of a Urge portion of
’ the Kentucky people to the Northern cause most
be attributed to permanent causes; and among
these were, fink, an essential unaonudnesa on the
slavery question, under the influences of the pecu
list philosophy of Henry vtsy, who, like every
yrest man. left on Impress upon hli State which It
remained for future even more than contemporary
generations to attest.”
Two points ore here clearly stated by tho
best writer In rchcldom, viz: that to favor
slavery 1b to favor the rebell'ou, and vice versa,
and tbat tbe great Clay, who declared that
he had rather his right arm should be severed
from bis body than that he should vote
slavery into territory previously free, did by
the timely power ho gave to that great idea,
.save bis State years afterhe fiad been gath
ered to his fathers, from the abyss of seces
sion. XVhat higher tribute could be paid to
Harry Clay and Liberty I
t3y~The~English~xnind is newly agitated
over a question of great gabs. Tho long ex
pected contest between the Whitworth and
Armstrong systems of artillery commenced
at Shoeburyness on the 4th Instant, and al
though the details of tbc trial ore kept se
cret at present, It is understood that-a mini
mum of three thousand rounds will be fired,
from each gun, and tbat the contest will bo
necessarily very tedious, extending over n
period o! two or three months, if not more.
Sir William Armstrong Is representedby three.
twelvc-poundcr breech-loaders and three
muzzle-loading shunt gnus of the same cali
bre, and Mr. Whitworth by three muzzle
loaders of the same size. These nine guns
ore already on the gronnd, and three seventy
pounder Armstrong breech-loaders, three
seventy-pounder Armstrong muzzle-loaders,
and threebeventy-pounder Whitworth muz
zle-loaders were on their way from Woolwich
to Shoeburyness at last advices. .
This grand course of experiments Is con
ducted under the direct' supervision of tbe
Special Committee of the Ordinance Board
which was appointed to examine into the
merits and defects of the two rival systems.
The progress and results of tbe trial will ho
regarded with nearly as much interest In the
United States as in England; for although
onr Hodmans and Parrotts are very deadly
and effective, there is probably room left for
improvement even in oar superior system of
artillery practice. '

tbe Presbytery of Elizabethtown, New Jer
sey, having become satisfied that one of their
number—Rev. James H. McNeill—had be
come a military officer in the ao-MUed Con
federate army, bis name has been struck from
their roll. He was formerly one of tbe Sec
retaries of the American Bible Society, and

FROM ST. LOUIS.

the People Tolerate Thom—Political
natters—The Draft,etc,, etc.
[Special Correspondence Chicago Tribune.]
6t. Loon, April 27,1861.
A revival of bushwhacking dh a small scale
Is greatly feared In North Missouri. Colonel
Jackman, a notorious bushwhacker, recently
crossed tbo Missouri-river between Glasgow
and Brunswick, with two hundred men.
This report caused considerable alarm in the
town -'of- Glasgow.. Immediate measures
were taken to prevent an attack. The Gov
ernment property, mostly bcloging to the
State, in the place, was gathered together in
the middle of the public and the State
militia kept under arms for many hours, but
Jackman come net. He Is too well ac
quainted with the disloyal element ol the
strong slave-holding counties ol Howard and
Boone to attack Glasgow with two hundred
men, when in a week's time he conld hare in
his gang six hundred of tbo disloyal scoun
drels of those two counties who are io great
alarm just now in codbeqacnco ot the im
pending draft. This affair is the principal
guerilla movement litely agitated, but when
such a grong is reported in a disloyal vicinity,
It invariably. happens that the small fry take
the'cue and commit all sorts ol depredations
on their Individual account.
Tho certainly that u large proportion ofthe
so-called; conservatives In this State nip at
.heart rebel sympathizers la apparent from the
ability of such a notorious fellow aa Jackman
to exist in Howard county. These rebel
sympathisers are conservatives from necessi
ty. They are either too cowardly to Join the
rebels outright, or they have no opportunity.
Their toleration of guerillas Is a double folly,
for they not only commit themselves to the
charge of sympathy with rebels, bat expose
their own property to th<? danger of destruc
tion of onr cavalry in pursuit of guerillas.
There are many more such counties in North
Missouri. They stand in singular contrast to
the example of Greene county, in the south
west, though that county is not ono-qnarter
so populous as Howard and Boone. There
guerillas have no chance. The people turn
out and hnnt them, and for a year Greene has
not suffered so much from guerillas as How
ard. These conservative chaps arc the men*
who admire .McClellan—the men In short
who would vote for McClellan because they
cannot vote far Jeff. Davis.
The enrolled mDltla question is getting In
terresting in this vicinity. The £3O exemp
tion fee has been paid so freely during the
last few weeks, that since April Ist tbo State
has received over $70,000 from this source.
Any man who can pay the money had better
do ft than be subject to such peculiar mili
tary officers as those in command of the en
rolled militia. There is a report that on the
4th of July there Is to bo a grand encamp
ment ordered ol all the St* Louis regiments,
numbering some 13,000 men. The tact that
three-fourths of this number hare no mus
kets, and that their line officers in a majority
of cases arc incompetent to perform the sim
plest evolutions or the manual of arms, is
sufficient proof that the enrolled militia of
St. Louis, as a body Is a grand humbug.
Take out the 7th regiment, which la a volun
teer organization, and the balance maybe set
down as of no account for field word iu case
of a real attack.
Theconscrv*tivea hare been trying to raise
a fund of SIOO,OOO to publish a new anti-.
German paper, a special advocate of the over
throw ot German influence in politics. Tima
far they have not succeeded, and present ap
pearances indicate that the attempt will be a
complete fizzle. The owners of the Union
regard that paper os a pretty good anti-Ger
man paper, and will hardly back the at
tempt to establish a rival paper as a compli
ment. The Germans arc a unit in fiivor.ot
radical measures in this State. They are
dogged and obstinate on that point, and they
would go for Lincoln to a man if they were
satisfied that the President was at heart a
radical, bat they point to his coarse in Mis
souri affairs, to his persistent and unaccount
able friendship for Prank Blair. These mat
ters cemo nearest their hearts, and conse
quently they do not.bellero Mr. Lincoln oc
cupies such strong radical ground that they
can support him. Kow the friends of Mr.
Lincoln are believed to sympathize with the
Missouri radicals, and they con obtain the
support of that party only by placing him on
such unmistakable radical ground in princi
ple and action that there can be no question
about it hereafter. - The moment they do
tide, and tbe*Presldcnt assents to It by throw
ing off bis pretended friends In this city, the
unity of the Union party will be established.
The question of the draft is still pending.
It apueore that the city is behind in former
calls'some eighteen hundred men. The
southwest district, represented by CoL Boyd
in Congress, Is exempt, and have a surplus of
7to to be coanted in the next calL This sur-
plus was obtained by bringing in Union men
from Arkansas and enlisting them in Mis
souri— a sharp trick, but probably legitimate
under the circumstances. The pro-slavery
Congressional districts are largely in arrears
as it is, but they would be more so bat for
tbe human chattels they have sent into the
-field in colored regiments. The re-cnllst
ment of veterans has diminished the num
hcrof men required'to be'drafted in this
State, but there are yet enough to make
those liable to the draft quite uneasy*
The extraordinary speech of Gen. Blair,
coupled v Itb the President’s act in cancelling
the resignation of tbe General are regarded
with combined emotions of Indignation and
pain. Gen.'Blalris vote on the Long censure,
and again on the Flock resolution, were
enough to settle Ids complete affiliation with
tbe Copperheads. He has gone over com
pletely into the camp of the enemy, and it is
a strange circumstance that tbe decision of
his case by the Committee on Elections
'has been delayed so long. For les
sons in political trickery the. • Blair
family are notorious teachers. But
how a resignation once accepted and record
ed as the condition precedent to the bolding
of another office can he cancelled,- is a mys
tery which the Attorney General’s legal, loro
alone can fathom.
There is a good story of a lot of Conserva
tives here, wno raised a sum of money to he
cent to tbe New York Sanitary Fair, to pay
for dollar votes for Gen. McClellan. They
clubbed with some eastern Copperheads and
■ made a pnr&c ol SSOO, or five hundred votes
for Little Mac. Their chagrin nnd feeling
ibat Grant had beaten their favorite two to
one, may be imagined. It served them right
to see their money .thus fooled away.
A misapprehension must have existed
upon the part of a writer in the Tribune
lust Tuesday in stating that the Western San
itary Commission refused to help the Chicago
Sanitary Fair a single cent, &<u The Sanitary
Commission here has no fundsbut those given
to it to be applied directly by its own amenta
to help sick and wounded soldiers. That
Commission had no right to give acent to the
Chicago Fair, as tbe managers of your Fair
must have known. Bnt aside from this the
people of Illinois have a deep interest in the
MlFsissippl Volley Sanltaiy Fair, to be bold in
1 this city, for their records show that they have
been the means ot relieving more Illinois sol*
, diers than qpy other State, and that there are
always more Illinoisans and lowans in Its
keeping than Missourians. Illinois is doing
bravely-for our Fair, and for tbe sick and
wounded soldiers of her own State.
A military prison for this department is to
be established on one of the Islands in tbe
river between tbe Missouri and Illinois shore.

Execution of Slade the
,* ful Scenes at tbe Banzme.
(Correspondence of tho Denver News 1
Virginia. Crrr, L T., March 10.
On the morning ,of Tuesday last, the Bth
intt., the current report around town was, .
that the peace and harmony of a certain
house of prostitution bad been Intruded upon
by a lot of scamps who entered tho aforesaid
crib, without any just cause or provocation,
and literally demolished and devoured toe
contents of its interior. The proprietress
who Is known here by the name of “Moll
Fcatbcrlegs,” thinking she conld recover
damages, commenced a suit before his Hon
or Judge Paris, and a jury of twelve were
called to hear the testimony and render the
verdict accordingly. Tbe esse was prosecu
ted and defended by tbe best talent the conn-
Ky affords, and towards evening the jury re
red, intending to give In the verdict next
morning at nine a. m. Tbe decision of the
Court (miners ) I have not beard, bnt sap
pose the Widow Fcatbcrlegs will recover
some damages.
On tho same evening the “chehang” of
Annie Skcggs. Lib Cunningham, «&Co., was
broken into, by Naylor, Thompson. Harden,
Slade and others. The contents of this re
sort were likewise materially defaced. Mrs.
Skcggß says they completely bunted her up
in business, and she had nothing left. .
J. A. Slade lias been a terror to this com
munity. He has been keeping & ranch on
the Madison branch of tho Missouri river,'
about ten miles from here, bnt spent two
thirds of his time in town, and while here
he wae always drank. He bad with him at
all times a gang of desperadoes, who feared
nothing end never observed law, order, or
the conned of any one. He frequently slop
ed law-abiding citizens in the face, and threat
• cued to 44 bore them through,” if his wish,
whatever it might be, was not gratified. The
citizens and vigilance committee sent him
word when be was sober, tbat law and order
should and wonld be preserved, and if he did
not abide by this rale, which is considered
imperative by them, ho would soon snffer the
consequences. Early this morning, Slade
and company were drank—not dead drank,
bnt crazy drank, and abased-every one, call
lug them opprobrious names, and daring
any one to take it up. Papers were issued
lor his arrest, and while he was being arrest
ed the warrants for himself and others were
tom up, and vengeance threatened against
.the court. Before other warrants could be
Issued, he went to the office of the Judge and
called him a eon of a b—h: and said some
people's days were numbered, and thus
abused the most .respectable altizen
among ns. At lortv minutes past three
p. zn„ a company of abonfc thiee hundred
men all armed, marched from some place un
known to myself, up through Jackson street
and halted directly in front of the place In
which Slade was. A guard was pat around
the town, and also tho building that-Slade
was then In. Business waa , suspended:
crowds gathered, tbe street* were full; old
i mngteta and rifles glistened, and still no ex
i citement prevailed. Gangs of men conld be
eecn In every direction, bnt hardly a word
was spoken. Nine-tenths of the people knew
nothing of this affair, or what the men .were
about to do.' The question would bs asked
‘ in every group of men, “ what Is tho fnsa f'
i “who is dead, &c, n At half-past four Slide
. was arrested and conducted to a ravine at the
edge of the street, where, lo and behold;
there stood before him and ns a newly erect
ed gallows, for this special, occasion. Tbe
» hills and streets, house-tops and every va
- cant spot in sight was covered with men,
women and children. Tbe ‘crowd con-'
' ducted him before - the scaffold and asked him
if he bad any thing to say before
be wonld snffer death. AH wae quiet
1 and still as death. Not a word could
* be heard from any one, except the
cravings of tho prisoner to see bis
wife. About an boor previous to this a mes
sage bad been dispatched* to bis ranch
for Mrs. Blade, bat this was not know
to tbe committee, and therefore bis
request was cot granted. Bo was made to
mount the stand and given-ten minutes to
say what bo pleased.. He cried for Judge
Davis, lawyer .Banders node others. Judge
Davis come forward and was asked,ln the
most entreating language, by tbe prisoner to
-plead with the people for an Innocent m in.
Tbe prisoner said It they would allow him*
to leave the country ho wonld immediately:
do so and go anywhere directed. Jadgo
Davis told him it was not in bis power to do
anything to save him. Again and -again be
wonld ask time fbr bis beloved wife to ar
rive. He said be had business matters to ex
plain to her, and ashed them for God’s sake
to grant Li m time for her arrival _His legs
‘now trembled,-his'f«ce'was pole, and
hla whole . frame was nervous.
He was now certain bis - time, bad
come. The rope was placed about his neck
and bis arms bound,, and again be cried
“for God Almighty’s sake, let me sec my own
beloved wife!” Cries of “let him see his
wife,” from every quarter coaid be heard,
and a rush to tbe gallows was looked for.
Excitement now prevailed, jmd a general
fight was now anticipated. In an instant
about three hundred guns were .leveled on
tbe crowd, and in an instant more everything
was as still fis tbe hush of middigbt. The.
prisoner was still begging for mercy bnt all
to no ‘purpose. Bang him they would, and
bang him they did. while be was still asking
for a few minutes longer; and witbont bis
being blindfolded, the trap was sprung. Tbe
fall was thirteen Inches, and his hoot toes
touched the ground. After hanging for thir
ty-one minutes the rope was cat and tbe
body conveyed to the Virginia hotel,
i Tbe crowd still remained in the street, but
not a word was said except bribe aforemen
tioned Naylor Thomson, who swore ven
sconce against tbe perpetrators of this deed.
A dozen or morobf the guards went alter
him end marched him to the gallows,* where
they were about to deal it onrto him, bat by
the Interference of some men be was let
loose. He will probably be banished. At
six o’clock, and before the corpse was laid
oat, Mrs. Slade arrived. She Is a lady who
bears on excellent character here, and Is
thought much of by all her acquaintances.
When ehe rode in front of tbe Virginia Hotel,
she alighted and was conducted to the room
in which her dead husband lay, yet ignorant
of the fret that be was dead. As soon as she
saw the body, sbe cried oat that God might
punish tbe murderers of her husband. Her
feelings can be better imagined than describ
ed, and tbe sympathy of this community Is
with her. “ She asked a friend of Slade’s why
do did not poll out a pistol and shoot him.
. before be was hanged.
Of tbe propriety or justice of this dreadful
tragedy ih&ve nothing to say. I give facts,
and leave you to comment Slade will be
buried to-morrow, on the mountain opposite,
and as soon as a metallic case can be brought
here tbe l}ody will be taken to Illinois. Thus
endetb tbe life of one who might have been a
useful member of society, and who might
have been beloved by this and other commu
nities.
Tbe names of the other .victims, who Buf
fered death in like manner, in December and
January last, yon have probably beard before

them again. Suffice it to say that the whole

[From the N, T. World.]
The extraordinary proceedings going on in
the usually petcelbl precincts of the Cooper
Union, ot wiiich a fall and exclusive account
was given in yesterday’s Worlds are creating
increased excitement, and tbe Institute was
last evening completely filled.
SELECTING TEC COMMITTEE.
Mr. Lacey, tho ngent for the Davenport
Brothers, alter making a |fcw introductory
remarks, at 8 o’clock requested, as usual,
that the audience would select a committee
of two gentlemen well known to them.
Two names bad been handed to him; one of
them was Mr. H. Barney.
A voice—ls it Hiram?
Mr. Lacey—There is simply the letter H.
A voice—There la a mistake—it Is N. Bar*
ney.
ilr. Lacey asked pardon for the mistake*
and inquired If Hr. Barney was well known
to the audience.
Cries—“ No* no.*’
The vote being put* Mr. Barney was re
jected as a committee man.
The next name was Daniel Sickles, cousin
of tbo General.
A vote on the name of D. Sickles, cousin
of the General, resulted In hls'belng chosen.
A Voice—l nominate Judge Whitney. (Ap
plause.
Mr. Lacy—What Is the name?
•Voice —W-h-i-t-n-o-y. (Laughter)
A Tote being taken Judge Whitney was
chosen for the secoud committee man. A
man with a very loud voice voted “ no."
The committee then examined the press or
closet placed on the stage on foar-lcggcd
stools, in which the Davenport Brothcrsper
form their feats, and pronounced It entirely
devoid of deception.
The brothers then came upon the stage.
A Voice—lt has been asserted that these
gentlemen bare artificial hands in their pock*
cts. Will the committee satisfy themselves
upon that point ? ' • *
Mr. Lacy—You will find nothing there ex
cept, perhaps, some greenbacks. The whole
person of the young men was examined, from
the collar to the hoots, and pronounced free
from machinery or any artificial appli oicca.
They were then tied securely to
the seats on cadi side ot the
press, and 'while Judge Whitney True
shutting the doors n hand passed by, as he
eisld, and grazed his face. The doors were
then shut, the rousted Instruments being put
Id, and in a moment out flew the trumpet
from the aperture in the middle door. The
doors were opened quickly, and the young
men were sitting tied us before. The trum
pet and tamborine were placed in several po
sitions indicated by a disbelieving audience—
once being placed directly under the feet of
one of the brothers, and in an Instant they
were tossed out of the aperture.
A Voice—** l*nt the trumpet outside, and
see If the spirits can throw it in.” [Laugh
ter.]
INCIDEKTS AKD REMARKS.
The audience were inclined to bo Jolt; and
skeptical. The most jsllly tests were pro
posed, the folly of which would have been
seen by the proposer if he had been in the
place of the committee. Mr. Sickles climbed
to the top of the closet, but found nothing
peculiar there, * One time, when he was try
ing to shut the doors, he was prevented by
what seemed to bo a hand. The doors being
shot, there came the sound of tuning the In
struments, and finally of a tune from the
closet that seemed to be pl.iycdon the violin,
guitar, and tamborluo; and, while the tune
was going on, a hand appeared repeatedly at
the aperture, and sometimes shook a bell.
A quadrille tunc was beiug played, when, at
the proper place, a man in the audience
shouted, “Forward two!”. Finally, tho
doors were opened, and all the Instruments
were tumbled out on the platform in full
sight of the audience, by some unseen force.
judge Whitney came fpraard to speak.
A Voice—Soy, Cap,’can’t yon speak loud
er!
judge Whitney—l would merely say that
ho young sun ore tied as securely as ever.
The doors were again shut, and there came
heavy rapping from inside.
A cry—Kobody’e at home.
After other curious manifestations similar
to those described yesterday, among which
were tbe quick untying and os rapid tying of
the men, Judge WbStnev was Invited to get
intd the box, many of tbe audience request
ing IL hands were tied to tbe hands of
the two brothers.
Cries. “Qet in Judge,” “Give him thirty
clnjs!”
“The doors being shot, the tuning of In
struments, and a great racket was beard.
Voice- “flowarcyoujudge?” (Laughter.*)
When the door was opened Judge Whitney
had the tambourine on bis head, and the
guitar, violin, and trumpet laid across his
back.
He related to the audience thathc felt hands
moving over his face and body; be was pat
ted by fingers on the forehead, tbe lustra
meats passed around his bead, and It all took
place independent of those two gentlemen,
as he had his bauds upon both of their hands
all the time. It was something he could not
explain, and rather a subject of awe than of
doubt or rivalry. He was never in a box of
this kind before, and never s»w the young
men before. _
Voice—Are you a medium ?
t Judge ,'WbUney—Howl am, 1 never was
before. (Laughter.) 1
Af aln the doors were shut, and a bare arm
was thrust out to the elbow. The music
played much; bard knocking beard, and
finally the tamborino and bell thrown oat of
the aperture. •
'When tbe doors were opened Judge Whit-
ney reported..

'Advice to Jeff. D»vta-C»wl« from

[From the Richmond Enquirer.]'
To His Excellency the President of the Confeder
ate States: „ .
8m: a. wise and magnanimous Chief Mag
istrate wiU not turn ft deaf car to the well
meant suggestions of the humblest citizen;
and, therefore, I address these lines directly
tor on. that yon mayJndße, yourself, free
from the Intimation of any one elae what-,
ever.
I will not speculate upon the probable re
sults of the loss of Richmond and East Ten
nessee. and Northern, Eastern and Western
North Carolina: bntl think I can see very
clearly how Richmond and Virginia maybe
defended and held by onr armies, and I look
forward to the happiest results from such a
consummation.- . .. t * « . . *
We have arms and ammunition In abund
ance, andmen enough, and there is food
enough in the country. In.my. If
this be so, and the whole world most sooner
or later know it—if It be really so—then If
Richmond and Virginia be not successfully
defended, on awfnl responslblllty.inuat rest
somewhere. ' '■ '1 ‘
I believe that wc have not only food suffi
cient for the men and horses, but. that there
Is ample railroad transportation to place it
In Virginia, where It la moat needed.. I hare
seen two thousand heavy packages of. goods
exposed for sale at a single auction; lawns
seulng nt flay dollars per yard tint were not
worth fifty cents, and, studying the subject,
I found the secret of the scarcity and high
prices ol provisions. I found that no< Gov
ernment could compete with banded specu
lators, walking such profits. They can af
ford to pay express companies and railroad
companies ten times the freight paid by Gov
ernment. Every dav 1 see express wagons
filled with htovy packages of provisions at
the doors of the departments and bureaus in
this city: and I inter that the favored officers
Son-combating) have plenty, even if the sol
era, wading through fire and blood, are
kept for months on short rations.
These things arc seen and known by the
soldiers, who are still patient and patriotic.
It Is true, thousands of dollars are expended
in advertising that express agents wOf carry
food to the army—thanks to their patroniz
ing omnipotence. Bat the parents of the
soldiers will not send it unless they can be
present and deliver it themselves.
BnUhe remedy. I would humbly suggest
to y<w Excellency the necessity of ex ter
mmating speculation in food and raiment.
Let the Government take the entire surplus
ot these indispensable articles Into Its own
keeping, as It has taken the entire population
of certain ages. Then make everything give
wav to Government freight, and accumulate
In Virginia not only enough for the army,
but for the families of soldiers, «fcc. Nothing
could be easier or more simple. Let the sur
plus products be paid for at schedule prices,
ind sold at the same, the army being provid
ed for, and there will be no more specula
tion. Tour Excellency knows bow salt has
been supplied In Virginia; everything need
ful can be supplied In the same way, and
we could maintain the war for fifty yean.
I trust your Excellency will listen to a
word as to men. They are not to be supplied
bv a few clerks from the department. Indeed,
it would bo a cry in such as would
ascend in thunder to Heaven, to removesome
of them—those who have leftbouseand land,
| and forsaken all for the cause, having here
parents, little sisters and brokhers'dcpendlng
on their salaries, for a scanty subsistence.
No; remove only those who cannot make
affidavit that they have no other means of
supporting those dependent on them but their -
1 salaries, and this will reach a hrge per cent I
But loos narrowly to the non-commissioned
officers here, who ore patronized by the ex- !
presswogons; young men, red-faced, andro- 4
bust and rich, who go about boasting tbclr
ability to keep their clerks, in spite of law
and order—look for these in all the depart
ments and bureaus; are, even In the Con
scription Department itself, and the besom
need not be idle.
The comnmnity is disaffected by seeing
.these starred and striped gentry in “soft
places.” while those near and dear to them
are driven like sheep to the slaughter—Camp
Lee—And the officers and soldiers in the field
may grow discontented. Let even-handed
Justice be done. And, with God's blessing
(which we will have then, for we shall havo
deserved. it), the host of the invader will bo
broken and utterly dispersed. We have the
men and the means to end the war gloriously
in a year, and I know your Excellency is as
deeply interested In bringing about such & re
sult as any man in the Confederacy. It is in
the power of your Excellency.

“We have no space to continue mili

Vicksburg felt; and now, lastly, at Sabine

inadequate to the command of an army. Yet,

Batdedat Erxsraa, Aruix. so.—The receipts or
thepast week bear very favorable comparison with
the preceding weeks of the month, We And that
dating the week*, ending April 2, there were 1333 head
of Cattle in the market, and that the supply for the
subsequent-weeks have been gradually Increasing,
thus bringing na to the fact that the spring
trade for. Beef Cattle has fairly set Is.
Bnt not only has there been this contact growth In
the supply, for prices hare procreated In the same
direction, only at a morel while they hare
attained a mark that some few years since would hate
beer, declared fabnlona and impossible by the most
aangnine stockbreeder. In thisre«pectihepastwsok
hasecllpstdeaehofltspredeceasors. Dnrlnc the first
three days, with the usual limited supply of the
part of the week there was no change to note, and no*'
additional symotoms of any unusual demand. Albany
market on ,the 23d and 21th last- was rather
cheering to drovers, as indicating some firmness,
wl*h a trifling advance on the previous mark(t;bot
thin Sew Tork on Monday was dull and gloomy
enough, except for those who lore gloom and dark*
ness. Onr advices from New Tork since have not
shown much Improvement, and yet, with these Acts,
patent to all. no sooner had the weekly receipts Airly
•come la on Thursday, than the market exhibited an
amount of excitement rarely witnessed, except in
Wall street, which drove prices up wflh a Jump from
25c >o 60c, and even higher, v pcr 100 lbs. There,
were many extra class droves In the
market, which were first bonsht np t
when each as remained shared the same Ate,
many cf them at prices thoroughly ridiculous. . This
state of things cooled down considerably on Friday,
hut prices remained throughout the day firm and an*
clanged; and to-day with Its nsnsl quietness, owing
•to the weekly supply being tolerably exhausted, and
the absence of the,nsnsl speculators, there has been no
visible chat ge In tbe sales made. Whether ihs unfa*
vcrable accounts from Albany, this evening, which
will be fonad among oar special telegraphic
dispatches .on .the Aral page of thu lame*
'Will affect the market or not remains to be seen.

tbe supply, and caused a large number of Hogs to bo
sent to, intended either fora later, part of tbespring
or pei hap* for an early period of tbeftll. There has
been lets dUßcnlty during the past week la getting
rleofthe supply than In hnnrlng drorers « tbe ap
prehension ofthe full truth, that tbs market had fall
en down a long, long way; and to the ftct. tbat many
of them still do not see this clearly nlay bo attributed
tbe largo Quantity of stock leftover this evening. *
Tbe entered sales daring tbe day amount to 8,110
Bogs, at bnt mostly at j6.7s©Ufl. Owing
to two of our city packers baring recommenced ope
radons, there basbec* a little more activity In the
yards, ,but with no symptom of Improvement la
prices.
