WEDNESDAY, AUGUST '2, 1876. __
Until the message sent to the Senate, yester
day, by'General Grant, his greatest enemies
labored under the impression that he ooosidoi
ed himselt the President of the United States,
and that from self-interest alone?for nobody
ever thought there was any patriotism about
him?now that there was nothing to be ma le
in the direction of a third term, he would like
to leave the position he has filled, only to di>
graee, at least with the country in as quiet and
peaceable condition as possible. But even they
have been disappointed, tor if there ever was
an incendiary attempt, and that, too, based up
on prejudiced, interested and ex parte evidence,
it is the message alluded to, and a portion of
which is us follows:
"These enclosures einbraco all the information
in my pos^e-sion t; uching the l?.te disgraceful
and brutal slaughter of unoffending men at the
town of Hamburg. My letter to Governor
Chamberlain contains all the comments i wish
to mako on the subject. An allusion iB made in
that letter to the condition of other Stutes, and
particularly to Louisiana and Mississippi. 1
have added to tho enclosure letters and testimo
ny in regard to the lawless condition of a portion
oi the people of the latter State. In regard to
.Louisiana ntfairs, murders and massacres of in
nocent men for opinion's sake, or on account of
color, have been of too frequent occurrence to
r( quire recapitulation or testimony hero. Ah
an- familiar with tho horrible datmls, tho only
wonder being that so many justify them or
apologize f< r them. Hut rr centlya committee
oi the Senate of the United States visited the
Stat" of Mississippi to taice testimony on tho
subject of frauds and violence in croetions
Their report, has not yet been made public, but
1 await its forthcoming with a feeling of conti
dence that it will fully sustain all in it 1 have
stated relating to fraud and violence in the State
of Mississippi."
In his letter (dated July 2G, 1870,) to Governor
Chamberlain the President says he fully concurs
in the views he (Gov. C ) expresses as to tho du
ly he owes to bis oath of office and to thecilizons
t<> secure to all their civil rights, including tho
right to vote according to the dictates of their
own consciences, and the further duty of the
executive of tho nation to give all needful aid
when properly called on to do so. lie further
6ays : "The scene at Hamburg, as cruol, biood
thirty, wanton and unprovoked a3 it was, is only
a repetition of the course that has Deen pursued
in other Southern States within the last two
years?notab'y in Mississippi and Louisiana.
Mississippi is governed to-day by otfieors choson
thn-u^h fraud and violence sucn us would
scarcely be accredited to savages, much loss to a
civilized and vhrittian people. How long these j
things are to continue, or what is to be tho liaal
remedy, the Great Kuler of the uuiverse only
knows. But I have an abiding laith that the
remedy will come, and come speedily, and earn
estly hope that it will come peaceably. There

to humiliate the Soulh?nothing is claimed for
one .State that is not irooly accorded to all the
others, unless it may b * to kill negroes and lie
publicans without fear ->f punishment, aud with
out loss of caste or reputation.. This has seemed
to be a privilege claimed br a fow States.
I xepeat again that 1 fully agree with you as
to the measure of your duties in the present
emergency, and as to my duties. Go on, and
lot every Governor, where the same danger
threatens the p'.ace of nis State, go on in the
conscientious performance of his duties to the
humblest as well as the proudest citizen, and 1
will give every uid for which I can tind law or
constitutional powor. Government that cannot
give protection to the life, property and all
guaranteed civil rights (in this country thegrcat
est is an uritrameled bailot) to the citizen is, so
far, a 'ailure, and every energy of tho oppressed
sh u d be exerted (always within the law and
by constitutional means) to re gain lost privileges
or protection. Too lonfc' denial o! guarrnteed
rights is sure to lead to revolution, bloody revo
lution, wnere sutl'ering must fall upou theguilty
as well as the innocent. Expressing the hope
that the better judgment and co-operation of the
citizens of the State over which you havo pre
sided so ably, may enable you to secure a fair
trial and punishment of all utlenders, without
distinction of 'race, color, or previous condition
of servitude," and without aid from the Federal
Government, but with-the promise of such aid
on tho conditions named in tho foregoing.
The following, taken from a inoroiug ex
change, will show the averag.- radical idea of
official integrity :
"As we had anticipated, Gcd. Belknap was
acquitted yesterday by the High Court of im
peachment upoo all the articles presented. The
case i* an extreme illustration of wbut partisan
bitterness may accomplish through the means
of ex parte aud hearsay t<s:imon\, extracted
through the Star Chamber process. A happy
family has boen throwu into the deepest sor
row and humiliation and an honorable officer
deposed from huh official position tor the grati
fication of the personal spite of an envious wo
man, and tho insaoe aid diabolical desire to
make political capital."
Now, there were thirty-s:x votes for guilty to
twenty five for not guilty, aud of the twenty
five all but two were so cast upon the technical
ground of want of jurisdiction?because Bel
knap, after he had acknowledged his guilt, was
cunning enough to resign, and tho President
became a )>urficci>.< crimijiis by making ao ex
ception iu ins ease aud accepting the resigna
lion on the instant. People who coDsidcr Bel
knap ao "honorable officer," upon suel) an ae
quittal as the Senate gave him yesterday, are
not t?ucii, we should suppose, as the country
would like to manage its affairs any longer; nor
do we believe that rnauy upright and consjien
C!<Us men, who have heretofore voted with the
republican party, will continue to support that
whose leaders, as acknowledged by the votes of
the twenty three, are such finished quibblers
Virginia independents fare badly not only in
the State they attempt to disgrace, but are
everywhere else treated as they deserve to be.
A letter in the Bal itnore Gazette this morn
ing says: *
"The on!? independent candidate who has
thus far had the hardihood to off r himself is
Juige John Criiclier, of Westmoreland, who
judging very correctly that his longing for of
lice could not be gntified through the ngular
chaonel of a nominating convention, nas imag
ined that if not elected himself his persona!
spleen might be gratified by jeopardizing the
success of the regular nominee. The only re
sult of his contuw icy and of the absurd card
lately published by him, in which he makes ao
affecting appeal to the old lioe whigs, will be
to damn forever his owu political prospects,
and to confirm the old whigs of the First dis
trict in the:r attachment to the con?e.vative
democratic party."
The Judge thought he would secure the rad
ical vote, but the radicals are not tvi'ling to
pay so much for such recruits, and Col. John i
W. Woltz has formally a .uouoced himself a .
candidate for Congrcs- in that district, subject i
to the action of the 1 a lical convention.
It is to be hoped that Coo^rress will refuse

The statement published in ilie radical pa

Wreck I so a "Bank."?Virginia City,

letter from Virginia City says :
The largest winning reported so far this year
was made by a teamster, who got aw^y with

A neat plot was hatched Free drinks are a
feature of every gambling room. A waiter takes
the order? from the plajers and brii gi in the
liquors and cigars on a tray. The waiter of t he
game which this wrecked gambler and his c om
panion had resolved to victimize was heavily
bribed to join the scheme. JJrinks were called
for, the dealer among the rest aski' g for re
ireshment The unfaithful waiter pa-sed ihe
trny to the dealer in such a manner t- ? to cover
the cards, and the g imbler deftly removed the
box and substituted another with a cold deck in
it under cover of the tray.
In about ten minutes the conspirators won"
$1,400, knowing what cards would come up
After about two thirds of the deck had been
dealt the dealer smiled and said :
"W'-U, boys, you may as well hand over my
box; I see you've got me this time."
There was neither anger nor hard words.
"Anything to boat the game" is cersiderod al
lowable, and the gamblers walk off with their
spoils in peace.

not "a scene from home."
Yesteriayl visited the village of White
Post, made mem liable by tho church coop
erated (by Bishop Johns July 13, 1875.) to the
memory of B shop Meade. A:- mai.y of our
people contributed liberahy to this object, a
description of it doubtless wiii be reau with
pleasure by many of your reader.-: The chuich
is built ol brick, iu Gothic style, and is hc;.u ilu:
iu its proportions. As y<_>u approach it it sets
back from tne street a disuiuce of half of one
of our squares, with a substantial enclosure,
the entrauoe gate large enough io admit car
riages. The first thing that me-ts the eye is
a square of marbie set in the wal. on the right
hand, on which is inscribed, "Mvade Memutial
Church, ]S73.' Ou the arch !?adtng into the
vestibule are the letters, "P. 10. C.," and my
kind escort uttered th^* pious j culation, "May
it always continue to be the Protestant Episco
pal Church." The iauer walls are r ugh ca-t
and tiuisbed in imitation of stone. A spacious
gallery and vestry room complete the wlioie.
Opposite the frout door over the ch:mo--l i- a
large double stained glass memorial win low
with opeu Bible aod crown, (.resented by the
ladies ol the congregation. Ov<. r the do >r and
gallery are two .smaller ones ol the same kind.
The side windows are of ground glass, capped
with siained. The furniture of the chancel is
ol waluut, ueat but handsome, the gift of Mr-,
liamney, nee Morrill, whose praise is in nil she
churches. The three uiscs arc ueatly carpeted,
and the vestry room also suitably furnished.
On the right of the chancel is ihe tablet, the
gift of Robert B tiling, of Fauquier, of white
marole, suirn uuied by a wreath encircling tne
cross and crown, bearing the following inscrip
tion :

That of which h? was the restorer, the noble
defender, and t he laLoriou- servnut to tis life's
end. "He rests Irom his labors, and his works

The liev. Joseph R. Jonos, by whose earn

The Iudiaii War.
J. S. Poland, captain of the (3th infantry,
writes from headquarters, military station,
Standing llock, Dakota Territory, uoder date
of July 24, to the Adjutant General, Depart
ment of the Minnesota, St. Paul, giving an Ln
diau account of thu battle of the Little B.g
Horn, June 20. The account does not differ
essentially from the reports already published.
It says, however, that Sitting Hull ws neither
killed nor personally engaged iu the ti^ht. He
remained in the council tent direction opera
tiuns. Crazy Horse, with a lar?e band, and
Black Moon were the principal leaders on the
25th of June. Kill a chief the lilack
feet, at the head of same twenty lodges, was at
this agency about the last of May. He wa
prominently engaged in the battle of June 2.0,
uud afterwards upbraidjd Sitting Bull for nut
taking an active personal part in the engage
ment. KillE;gle has sent me word that he
was forced iuto the tUht, and that he desire?
to return to the air^ucy, and that he wiil return
to the agency if he is kilhd for it..
The report concludes as follows :
"There is a general gathering iu the hostile
camps from ouch ol the agencies on the .Mis
Siuri river, R'd Cl-ui's and Spotted Tail's, as
also the Northern Cheyennes and Arrapalwcs.
They report, for the special benefit of their
relatives, that in three fights they had wi h
the whites they have captured <?? r 4()U stand
of arms?carbines, rifl s and revolvers not
couuted; ammunition without end, and som.
bread. They claim to have captured from the
whites this summer over 200 horses and mul- s.
L suppose this includes operations ajraiust the
soldiers, the Crow Indians and the Black Hills
miners. The general outline of this lodian re
port ooncurs with the published report. The
first attack of lleno began well on iu the day.
The Iudians report ab"!Ut 300 whites kill-id, and
do oot say how mi'uj li.diaus were killed. A
report from another source say>; the Indians
obtaiued from Cutter's cammand .O'J2 carbines
and revolvers. 1 have, since writing the above,
heard the foliowiutr from returnL-d hostiles:
They communicated as a secret to their parti
cular friends here iuformation that a larire par
ty of Sioux and Cheyennes were to leave Hose
bud Mountains, a hostile citnp, f ir this agency
to intimidate and compel the Indians here to
join Sitting Bull. If they refuse they are or
tiered to 'soldier' them and steal their pooi.'s,"

The ship Ge.twood, from Liverpool fur Mel
bourne, has been loat on the Au.-trahau- coast
with all on board. The rumored insuirection
of the Circassians in the Caucasus is contra
dicted. The proprietors ot the French journals
wtio were recently fioed for libels on the heads
of the Jesuit College have appealed from the
judgment of the Court. Ex Queen Isihella
has informed King Allonso thai she wiil take
no part 10 Spanish political affairs. A motion
introduced iu the House ol Commons yester
day by Mr. O'Connor Power, declaring that
the time bad arrived for granting amnesty to
Fenians, was rejected. The report that Mar
shal Baziiue had entered the Turkish set vice
is untrue; he is still in Spaiu. Ground has been
broken in the Champ de Mars lor the Freuch
Exhibition of 1S73.
.Fell from tiif. Third Story of a House]
IN his Sleep.?Mr. Walter Tyler wuh spend
ing Saturday uight with Mr. Veonie Barksdale,
j-onof CoP C. 11 Barksdale, at the Colonel's
residence on Frar-kliu street. The young geu
tlemen were sleeping in the third story. A.bout
2 o'clock in the night Tyler, feeling sick, went
to the window for fresh air. and while there fell
asleep and fell out ofthe window to thegrouud.
He lay theiv seosehs.- until a policeman picked
him up at 4 o'clock Suuday morning. Strange
to say Tyier was nor seriously hurt, his collar
bone only being slightly broken and his budy a
little bruised.?Rich. St<ite.
J5rr?5a' To THE I'oblic.?Aly attention having
been called to a published anonymous state
meut that I instigated and abetted the ioter
ruptions at the Radical meeting, at the post
office, on Thursday night last, I only have to
say that the said statement is a wilful, m tlici- ]
ous and uncalled-for falsehood, instigated, I
suppose, only by the most depraved animosity,
I fl itter myself that this denial if unnecessary
in this community, but newspapers contain ex
tract- from each other, and the statement al
luded to may In- r?<ad by people to whom I am
unkuiwij. Kespcct'u'ly,

Tlie Fewell Case.
Brksisyillit, Aug. 1, 1870.
To the alitor of the Alexandria Gazette :
JL maun in 3?^ur txwtict tr*m i n- Manassas

I immediately upon tho decision of th ? court and
br. ng'.t before Justice A. W. Sinclair, who sent
? him on fur tho action of the Krand jury nnd fixed
1 bis bail in the sum of S5HH; that Fewell whs un
I able to give bail and therefore committed to
ju.il. iJe was also arrested upon a peace warrant
I sued out by Mrs. Feweil. So far tho Manassas
! Gazette was correct in its roport. but fails in the
I sut-s^ q tent issue to inform tho public that a lew
1 davs .ifter Fewoll's recommitment the peace
j wnrrar.t whs dismissed because tho prosecutrix
' failed to up pear against hitu, and the matter for
which he was sent on to the grand jury was dis

. tuted thG proceedings in the primary stage of
J prosecution Hence his discharge. There are
now i!o proceedings of a criminal nature pend
