Tho most prominent and dis gusting of thescacts are said to have been witn-sscd by a largo number of residents in that vicinity on Saturday evening. Wo give the stories as they aro told to us . A Eoldier of Compmy II, Eighteenth Vettran. Reserve Corps, (the regiment stationed iu that barracks,) named Chris topher Eldctbrand, visited the Twentieth Corps for the purpose of scciug a friend, became intoxicated, and did not return lo the barracks iu si ason to auswer to roll o a 11 . Const quetitly, at ix o'clock on Saturday evening Eldctbrand was sus pended by the thumbs to a rcuud of a ladder placed with oho end on the ground and the other ajainst thocavos of tho buil dings. IIu was kept suspou-lcd until fif teen minutes to uino o'clock. After two hours of fufaring, the cries cf Eldrr brand (who is ab.ut seventy years of age) wcro bo loud- and lieart-reuu ng tti.it a gag was placed in his mouth to suppress the noijio. Tho erica of tho sufferer sxoitud the wife of a lieutenant in the barracks to such a degree thai Ax threatened f.o cut the niau dowu herself if no other person would. Tnoso who were present and saw Elder- brand taiiuii down say that the blood is sued from both Ids uoio and mouth Yesterday morning tho two citizens whom we havo uiotitioueo above as having made remarks concerning the punibhuicut were before Col. John-on, the couimauder of the regimm.t, ono ol them having boon taken there under arrest. Col. Johusou charged them with inciting the crowd to riot, and ordered ono to report at a fixed tiui", and tho other when notified. The ouc, however, who was taken bo- fore the unload under guard, yesterday, oallod on S.cretary Stanton, aud laid thu facts bofore him. The Seoretary called in Gen. Fry, and requested him to investigate tho caso. The Socrelary thou dispatched a cour ier with a'n order from Col. Johnson, re quiring tho rolouso of tho gentleman who called on him from arre.-t, wilh whioh or der tho Colonel is said to have complied. Wbilo in oonvorsatioti with tho Seore tary of War, this gentleman also informed him that a soldier had been confined in tho guard houso of tho barra'eks for thrco months, lacking a few days, aud had been lying very ill for tho most part of the last month of his confinement, having been deprived of the services of a physician, and, until within tho past few days, still remnitiing iu tho guard-house. This, tbo Secretary said, should bo nlso inves tigated.

Ho is believed to havo been educated a Vhig,and sitioa'tho break ing up of that organization, bus not de fined his position politically ,but has some times voted for Democrats and somctimos for Republicans. Upon this subject the New York Journal of Commerce remarks as follows : "The career of this d'lEtingui-hcd officer has endeared him not alone to his army, but aleo to every soldier and to tho entire American people. The enthusiasm with which ho has been received in Washing ton will be equaled in all the oountry,and he will find himself already known in every house whero a patriotio hoart beats for tho soldier ol tho Union. It is ono of tho most remarkable incidents of tho times in whioh wo live that tho attempt should bo made to destroy tho reputation of suoh a man. It was as iniposslb'e lo effect this as it has proved in other at tempts ou other officers Tho peoplo of this coutitry havo a strong appreciation of the meritfl of the soldiers who have be n protniuent in the war.

Sherman In his reply to Halleok calls him and Stautou dssasssina j here aro his words : "I ihink I understand both tbo circum stances and men sufficiently woll lo ap preciate tbo motives of your despatch. Both you and Mr. Stanton sent mo warn ing to betvaro of assassins. I did not know then that tho authors of tho warn ing were themselves ths assassins I tad to fear." Ono would think that a thrtitt like this would penetrate tho rhinoceros skin of tho hurley Secretary ; but it only had tho effect of raising tho writer of it in Stanton's estimation. Wo aooordingly bavo it announced by telegraph that tho friends of Gen Sherman and Seoretary Stanton are endeavoring to reoonoile tho former to tho latter. S it socais that tho General has Stanton upon his knccs,shrink tig further ch istiseniont. This is tho truo spirit of ti whipped spaniel or a baflled conspirator. But instead of the heroic Boldicr hooding tho whining of Stanton's messenger, begging pardon for their mas tor, the daumloss soldier is mingling with his heroic legions. Tho man whom Hal lock oonspircd to disgrace, is now in tho capital, tho admired of all admirers. Speaking of the late reviow iho telegraph igcnt gives Sherman tho post of honor ; ho says : "First camo the army of tho Teniies soo, with M,ijor-General Fhernian sur rounded by a brilliant slaff, All along tho Aveuuo from pavement to tho bouse top, the thousands of spectators greeted them with deafening chocr. Tho Gen eral rode on, neither looking to tho right nor tho left When he roaehsd tho Pres ident and Gen Grant's stand the ovation was tromendou'. At least 40,000 peoplo roso and gave him oheor after cheer, above which could hardly bo heard tho sounds of tho bands," The telegraph also iufornn us that when Gen. Sherman walked ou iho platform, on which sat the President, several mom bers of his Cabinet, besides many othor. distinguished personages, ho walked to wards the President who shook him cor dially by tho b .i ml. atauton next exten ded his hand towards Sherman, when that ofiicer looked at hint contemptuously, and wheeling quickly upou his itecl took a seat along side Gen Grant.

LiUrary Companion. The EjiPEiton Nicholas and the Ac tor. Tho following anecdote is now, and exhibts tho late Emperor of Russia in a new character, as well as records ona of tho most happy escapes from an awkward position that wit and presence of mind might afford. Some yars ago thero 3 was a very celebrated oomio notor at .St. Petersburg na,mcd Martioff. Ho had most extraordinary powers of Imitation and was a great' favorito with tho publio as some times to venture interpolations of hu own instead of following tho advice of Hamlet to players to "speak no moro than is set down for thorn." Tho Emperor at tho samo timo had a high chamberlain, or personage filling a similar office, named Poloff.-ky. Whether lor fun or malioo MartiofTJ while porforming, contrived to let Ily aomo puns Bgaintt this great tnau, which wero warmly received b the audience. Tho consequence was, ris soon as4he pity wu over, tho actor found himself in tbo cus tody of a guard of soldiers, who took bim to prison, where He was told no was to be confined for a fortuight. Not conten ted with this, Poloffsky either told the Emperor himsclfjOr contrived that itiho'd oomo to his cars, ihas tho player bad ac tually had tho presumption to indulge in imitations of His Imperial Majesty. Ou his liberation, Martioff, wont to Court to pay his ro-pceta as usual and tho Emperor told him of his accusation, whiob ho denied. "Well," said tho Emperor, "if you never did so, let mo havo an im itation of myself now. We know you ean do so if you choose." This was an awkward and dangerous position for tho poor actor, who tolt ne mould get into trouble for cither falling short of or over doing tho character. Still the autocrat was determined ; there was no osoap'e. Suddenly a bright thought struck tho player, aud drawing himsolf up, be as sumed the oxaot bearing and manner of the Emperor, and in a voioo so liko that it mado every ono preseut stnrt.said, "Po loffsky, giro Martioff (himself) a thousand silver roubles !" f 'Stop," said tho Erapo. ror, "I havo heard qu.to enough. Tho i mitation is admirablo but the entertain moot promises to bo too expensive. Givd bim the rouble?, Poloffsky ; and now mind, sir, let this bo (be last time you cvor thro to mimto mo hero or olscwhero." It is of courso, unnecessary so say Martioff was too glad to pocket tbj monoy and escape so well, ittt?"
