The bill to protect all persons in the United Suites in their civil richts, and to furnish the means for their education, has passjed both houses of Congress, the Senate hav ing voted on it to-day, and it only re quires the signature of the President to make it a law. As a eood muny antici pated a vote on tbe act, its important provisions are herewith given : The 1st section is as follows: All persons born in the United States, and not soliject to any foreign power, excluding Indiana, not taxed, are hereby declared to be cUizent of the United States, and such citizens of every race aad color, without regard to any previous condition of slavery or involuntary servi tude, except as a punishment for crime, whereof the party shall have been duly E IP MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, MONDAY EVENING, 3IARCII 19, convicted, shall have the same right in every State and Territory of the United States to make and enforce contracts, to sue and be parties to suits, and give evi dence, to inherit, purchase, lease or sell, hold and convev real and oersonal prop erty, and to the full and equal benefit of all laws and proceedings tor the security of person and property as is enjoyed by white citizens, and shall be subject to like punishment. ' pains and penalties, and to none other. Any law, statute, ordinance, regulation or custom to the contrary notwithstanding. The seconds section is as follows: Thkt any person who, under color of any law, security, ordinance, regulation or cus tom shall subject, or cause to be subjec ted, any inhabitant of any State or Ter ritory to the deprivation of any right secured or prohibited by this act, or to different punishment, pains, or penally on account of such person having at any time been held in a condition of slavery or involuntary servitude, except as a punishmentfor crime, whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, or by reason of his color or race than is pre scribed for the punishment of such per sons who shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction shall be punished by fine and imprisonment not exceeding one year, or both, at the discretion of the Commissioner. The 3d section gives the U. S. Courts exclusive jurisdiction of the cases arising under this act, and also currently with the Circuit Courts of the United States of all causes, civil and criminal, afford ing persons who are denied or cannot enforce in the Courts or judicial tribunals of the distric t or locality where they may be, any of the rights secured to them by the first section of this act; and if any suit or prosecution, civil or criminal, has been or shall be commenced in any State Court against any person for any cause whatsoever, or against an? officer, civil or military, or other person, for arrest or imDriaooment. trespass or wrongs done or commit ed by notice or under ad mission of authority derived from this act, or the act establishing a bureau for the relief of freedmen and refugees, and all acts amending them, or for refusing to do any act upon the ground that it would be inconsistent with this act, such defend ant shall have the right to remove such cause for trial to the. proper District or Circuit Court, in the manner prescribed by the act relating to habeas corpus and regulating judicial proceedings in certain cases. The United States Marshals and District Attorneys, and agents of the Freedmen's Bureau, are empowered to prosecute cases under this bill, severe penalties are provided for all persons who may in any way hinder the opera tions of it The First Blood. , The London correspondent of the Cin' cinnati Gazette thus write? of Fenian affairs :' On Saturday, the 17th ult, the day on which the act suspending the habeas cor pus was passed, a party of three police men called at the house of a farmer named Jamo, Ryan, residing at a place called Glenbane, in the county Tippe- rarv. near the borders of Limerick. A they approached the house they heard the Bounds as ot men arming wnn guns revolvers and other arms. The consta bles knocked and demanded admittance. and Ryan opened the door, but seeing them load their pieces he put out all the lichts, and then his drill party fired at the police, wounding one so badly that both lees bad to be amputated. The second was wounded slightly in the shoul der, and tbe otherescaped. The Fenians then rushed out and yelled and hurruhed for free Ireland, etc., and fled to the mountains. ' A second and stronger party of police returned soon after to the house and arrested Ryan and two other per sons, ana seized a six-barreled revolver. three barrels of which were still loaded which the tleeinu party had left behind. It is said that a new commission will be appointed for the trial of the Fenians. Troops still continue to pour into Ire land, and every little town and hamlet throughout the country was being gar risoned. The Cold Stream Guards and a body of sappers and miners were ordered off on the day the steamer sailed from Liverpool (21st). As many ot there nians arrested nave occn sent to tne Model Prison at Pentonville, all subordi nate officers of that institution, of Irish birth, were transferred to other Govern ment prisons. It was stated, but atter- ward denied, that a guard of the mail van had been fired at during their passage from the Dublin postolfice to the Great Southern Railway, oil hiinduy morning 18th ult 1 hree regiments have receivet orders to sail for Canada as soon as pos sible. Tbe statement was also made and correeted, that Mrs. Stopbens, Mrs. Luby and Mrs. O Donovan hud been arrested. The Government it is said, does not in tend to interfere with them. A New Game, Tbe Petersburg ( Va. ) Index has been favored with tbe diagram and explana tion of a new game, lately invented by CoL Charles Richardson, formerly the commander of a veteran battalion ot ar tillery in General Lee s army. The Imlex savs of it : It is somewhat similar to the beautiful and intricate Chess, but even more nearly allied in its strategy and combinations to real war than the pastime of 1'hilidor and Kassim. War-chess, or the Game of Battle, is played by two persons with pieces repre senting soldiers, (cavalry, artillery and infuntrv.) forming two antagonistic armies operating on a board. The board represents a comparatively level country traversed by river, passable at three points only, viz : the bridge and two fords. On one side of the river there is a pieee representing: a city which is to be de fended, and if captured the player of that side loses the game. On the other side is a figure represent ing a wagon the " supply train " of the army which must be carefully guarded, as its loss is the defeat of the player of the side to whieh it belong. Tne maneuvering at the beginning of the game is, of courje, on the part of the first to gain, and on that of tbe second player to prevent the passage of the river. The dispositions to be made, according to the arrangement of the board and the powers of the pieces, are in accordance with the arms of the ser vice which the figures represent And in the very opening of the play endless variety is obtainable as the three assail able points aflWd endless opportunity for connteT-movement, diversions, feints, etc Once across, there is again room for LARGEST CITY CIRCULATION. much contest, as the invaded party, by concentrating rapidly upon the force crossed, and still holding the remaining torus, may at any time, by an attack, gain me rear ot bis unguarded adver sary. Death Warrant ef Christ. The Courier det Etats UnU, of a late date, says: Chance has put into our hands the most imposing and interesting t'udicial document, to all Christians, that las ever been recorded in human an nals; that is, the identical death war rait ot our Lord Jesus Christ We transcribe tbe document from a copy of tbe trans lation : "sentence Kendered by Pontius rilate, acting Governor of Lower Galilee, that Jesus of Nazareth Shall Sutler Death on the Cross. " In the year seventeen of the Empirs of Tiberias CVsar, and the 4th of March, the city of tho holy Jerusalem : Aneas and Caiaphas being priests, sticrifieiitors of the people of God, I, Pontius Pilate, Governor of tbe pra-'lory, condemn Jesus ot riazareth to die on the cross between two thieves tbe great and notorious evi dence of the people saying 1. He is a seducer, 2. He is seditious. 3. He is the enemy of the law. 4. He calls himself, falsely, the son of Uod. -6. He calls himself King of Israel. 6. He entered into the temple, fol lowed by a multitude bearing palm branches in their hands. -Order the centurion, Quintius Corne lius, to lead him to the place of execution. Forbid any person, whomsoever, poor or rich, to oppose the death ot Jesus. ' The witnesses that signed the death of Jesus are : 1. Daniel Robani, a Pharisee. 2. Jannua Horobable. 3. Capet, a citizen. Jesus shall go out of the city by the gate streneous. The above sentences are engraved on a copper plate, on one side is written these words : "A similar plate is sent to each of these tribes." It was found in an antique vase of white marble, while excavating in the city of Aquilla, in the Kingdom of Naples, in the year 1825, and was dis covered by the Commissiarat of Arts attached to the French armies. At the expedition of Naples it was found en closed in a box of ebony, in the sacristy of CauHem. - Tbe French translation was made by the members of the Commission of Arts. Tbe children requested earnestly that the plate might not be taken away from tbem. Tbe request was granted as a reward for the army. Mr. Dennon, one of the savans, caused a plate to be made of the model, on which he had engraved the above sentence. At tbe sale of his collection of curiosities it was bought by Lord Howard for 5881 francs. Mormons in England. The divorce court in London on the 20th ult was occupied with a cose arising out of a Mormon marriage. A Mr. Hyde, who is now a dissenting minister and a country editor, went to Utah nnd married a Miss Hawkins, who hnd gone out to him for that purpose. Al.i-rw r ) he was sent on a mission to the Saiitit. Islands, and while there he was re-n-verted to Christianity. His wife, ho. ever, remained steadfast in her allegiance to Brigham Young, and married again. IJr. SDinks, who appeared lor the peti tioner, contended that a first marriage in Ltah must be regarded as a valid one, even in England ; but Sir James Wylde doubted whether the matrimonial con tract as it was understood in Christen dom, had beea entered into at all. How ever, his lordship took time to consider bis ludgment. Mr. r. I eri'V. a witness in the case. says : 1 once saw a man and cis lour wives living in a small room, containing three or four beds, separated by curtains only. I may add that this was a most heart-rending scene. Three of the wo men were sweetly pretty, accomplished Lnzlish girls, whom I had known here. Tbey were all married on the same day to their Mormon elder, (elder in a double sense), and. what is in'harmony with the discord, a butcher. The heavy ex pression of gravity and care on the old brst wile s luce 1 shnll never lorget, and tears come to my eyes now as I remem ber the hopelessness of tone with which one of the young ones said, in answer to a question of mine, ' Ah, we don't sing now. In bnglnncl they used to sing like a choir ot angels. Western Texas in 1860 and 18G8. We would rail attention to the pros peots ahead of us, by comparing the rela tive degree of prosperity which we en- red belore the late war and wliat we iiv reasonably expect within the lapse of the current year. In 100 the amount of cotton raised west of the Colorado river, which found its outlet through this bar. did not exceed in value f l.l'jO.OOO ; the value of wool and hides did not ex- reed $ 150.000 : and we sold abrond about 600,000 of beef cattle altogether two millions of dollars, lliis year we es4t mate that there will be 8000 bulcs of cot ton raised in the same territory as 1800, worth tl.600,000. The value of beef cat tle exported and sold above the home ensumption will be $1,000,000; of hides, will be $250,000; of wool, will be $1,000, 000 altogether three millions eight hun dred and fifty thousand dollars. India noa Timet. A Two-horse Performance. Tly practice of the Republicans indorsi ng both the I'residcni ana t-ongress, in order to carry an election and hold on to the loaves and fishes, is happily hit off by the Philadelphia Age thus: The Republicans of Connecticut ar? trying to ride two horses, they nave issued an address in which they praise the President; and, at the same time thev support General Uawley for Gov ernor, who is violently apposed to " the Government" They seem to be in favor of either Thaddeos Johnson or Andrew Stevens, it don't matter which, if they fan only keep oa the winning side.
