Hurrah for the wooden nutmeg 8tate, rich in clocks, notions, Yankee peddlers, school marms and Democratic Voters. Hurrah I done over to Andy, and down on the long Congress positively ' the first State at the North to defy the Jaco bins and exhibit a white speck In the Cimmerian darkness ycf New .England. Brave Connecticut! gallant State of re deemed Yankees and indomitable pluck 1 The Conservatives, the decent people of all sections, sond greetings to you, and wish that you may live a thousand years, green in vigor, strong in limb, free in Sentiment, and deathless in fame. "We can forgive your'nutmegs, keep 4ime to your clocks, look at ourselves in your tin pansj and creak from year to year in your pegged shoes. You have asserted and maintained for yourself the dootrine that tyrants may.be successfully re sisted. Without fearT but- full -6 hope and pluck, you met them, and drove them from" in a ' field." Yob "have shamed the great, West, and tanght .it a lessen it will not easily forget With the South, you have little direct inter.coarse, but you have come to.jti rescue.:. The West, that expects to find in the South a market for her products, and thus grow rich on Southern trade, dootns'our peo ple to military chains and deals with theui as with so many brigands. . Cincin nati, a city that has been built op and sustained in great part by the trade of the South, and is now enjoying it in an extraordinary degree, gives a majority of five thousand votes to her enemies. But Connecticut, upon whose soil the foot of a Southern man is rarely planted, and whose prosperity is little affected by Southern trade, comes gallantly to her aid in the dnrk hour when, looking in any direction, she could detect no friendly glance and hear the voice of no earthly sympathy. Again, and thrice again, we say, from - the- fulness of a grateful soul, hurrah for Connecticntl CHICAGO-ABSEHIC. The city of Chicago has long had the reputation of being the meanest place in the world. All over the South, such characters as " Chicago thieves," are well known. Its production and expor tation of this commodity free gratis for nothing, render it famous. But . it can boast something additional. "' It" can boast the most heartless public men that ever disgraced public affairs. They re fute to give .one cent to save the lives of those who are starving in the South. Even Boston, loaded as it is with tons of isms and acres of beartleisncss, has not been insensible to the cry that issues from a land of famine. The little town of Sl Paul has given a thousand dollars. Uut neither publicly nor privately, will the great, rich city of Chicago give one cent. When asked to contribute, due of its public men coolly proposes to send arsenic. And yet the inhabitants of this place, as the Times says, " pretend to worihip the God of mercy and love. They believe, or pretend to believe, in the divinity of the scriptures. They recognize the duty of Christians to ob serve the commandments f the iicca logae. They preach unto others the Christian duties of meekness and mercy and charity and love. They enjoin upon all who are unrighteous the obli gation of loving'their neighbors as them selves. They pray, one day in seven, " Lord, give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our wrongs as" we forgive those who do wrong to us." During the other seven days, they occupy them selves in money-getting, and ieed not the cries of children starving for bread, or if their cries are heard, propose, instead of giving them bread, to stop their mouths with arsenic!" Did any city ever before make such a record ? If there is anything in' a popular theory that curses and calamities pursue the un Godly, Chicago is in dangf-r. HOW IT IS. . A newspaper wants to know "how is it that United Slates ten forties, yielding five per cent, principal and interest pay able in gold and free from government taxation, rate lower in the market than Massaghusetta five per cent bonds, prin cipal acd interest payable in gold, but subject to government taxation T " An other newspaper answers thus : " We suppose the reasoa is that Massachu getts, founded on Plymouth rock, taxing tbe whole country to support its manu-fnr-turvrs, and, in time of war, ranking monrj ty fat contracts, instead of losing its nun and mcney by lighting, is a much more safe debtor than the Federal Government" " "llOOIH'fl CHAMPION. The diary kept by Wilkes Booth is ex citing a good deal of discussion tti the Northern It was not known to tlio public pti-viuus to the trial' of Mrs. Surmttthat any such document was in exigence. As for Butler's attempt to usu the invsUrj ol'tha diary to gi t up suspicion that Andrew Johnson was con federated, w.lh Booth to procure tJio saasinntiim of Abraham Liuculu, th New York Time mules the followin severe and deserved commentary : "Gsn, Builwv who thus makes himself Mhe speciul champion of the assassin, pre tends that the production of hi diRry would1 have shown the country ' who was in ttrti fit bv the assassination, who would ; succeed to -Mr, Liucolu in the event of bis murder ; and 'who, there fore, .pursuaded. Booth to chunga.lis original purpose, .wliicii was. to. rapture aud abduct Mr. Lincoln, into one ol murder. Thisii'. aimply infamous. Butler does not believe that diary would show any thing of the sort ' He knows tha't it could not snow it He pretends to have road it; he quotes other passages from it; he does not and dare not assert that it contains a single Jiue which . war rants the inference he would lead Others to draw. If there had been any thing of the kind in the record, be is notthe man to have been contented with insinua tions. . ; Oen, Butler is a man who f tjls in the dark. In the war he bung oue man, who was unarmed, defenseless and wholly ip bis power, without a trial or semblance of one. Ue imprisoned ana tortured, nnder false retf-xlsy an array chaplaincfor notinveB ting,. or asserting when he had invented for him, a false statement about brother officer. And he now seeks ts infuse into the public mind, by cowardly insinuations, an in famous calumny- against thePresident of the United States.-The country will treat it and him as both deserve.". . ;-- -7" ' HIDEOUS GHOSTS. .! .Bingham .and Jlutler. are .provoking keen and cutting comments from the press., iney-nave- toia on eaun oiner and turned the eyes of the people back to contemplota transactions of.' the war which, like the poetical ghost, will not down. A Radical paper of the W est sees visions, and screams out: Fort Fisher is- history'; Mrs.'"Surratl rests, wny summons up inese niaeous ghosts when more maternal matters de mand attention ? Have done with such grim play, gentleman 1 , f . Ohot "Have done with such grim play " indeed I There are ghosts about, are -.there, -Bitting here and there, one taking the form of a wo man with a broken neck, and eyes wild and unshut on her murderers and their accessories forever; the other, that of a man, torn from tbe world, and, with out crime for which the law had provided punishment, and without trial, exe cuted in cold blood I Butler and Mum ford; Bingham and Surrattt names that ill walk down the stairway of history together. "There be other ghosts, if there be ghosts at alt . Stricken consciences, fascinated by, and hovering about tbe battle-fiolds of the South, can see elouJs of them rising out of the earth. But a collossal ghost is soon to appear the ghost of murdered liberty. The thirty ninth Congress will behold it, and may its awful form haunt them forever. May it face them when waking and sleeping, eating and drinking, and torture them uo- I tbe hour in which they shall become ghosts themselves. BTEIKIHG CONTRAST. The largest thing since the surrender of Lee, and the German war. is the Rus- an treaty lately made at Washington, by which Russia, for a consideration of seven million dollars, cedes her American-possessions to the United States. This document has been sent to the Sen ate for ratification. The dismay it caused in that body, and in the Jacobin ranks generally, may be imagined. As flank movement on the part'of the President, it is difficult ts overrate its importance. The contrast to which it di rects the minds of the people, is striking. While Congress was growling and snarl ing over the impeachment scheme, and devising ways and means to turn the President out of office, be was engaged n the grand work of absorbing into the mits of the United States territory large enough for an empire. Never did contrast exhibit a meaner spectacle itn that exhibited by Congress. We oubt if it can survive so disgusting a position-. . its enorts aro for miserable arty ends. How proudly the President appears in ibis singular picture I Lofty n his conduct, expansive in his views, nd national in his aspirations, he com mands the admiration of those whose ntercst it is to hate and denounce him. GETS HIS DESERTS. Saturday night last, says a Missouri paper, the tiDted Joe Wood, one ot letcber a militia, went into tbe saloon of Joe Geimer, an inoffensive citizen of Sedalia, Mo., and commenced knocking n persons. Geimer asked him to de sist or leave tbe saloon. Wood left, but shortly after returned, and shot Geimer in the back, killing him almost immedi ately. He then wr-nt to Lett's Hotel, and defied arrest The people assembled, took him, put a rope around his neck, dragged him through tbe streets cf Se dalia, and then hung Liin uutil life was extinct, and the bodies of the murderer and murdered ware buried at tbe same time. ACCESSORY. The South, says the Ciarksville Chron icle, is accessory to all tbe Radical crimes against the Constitution, justice and luraaniiy. Cotton sustains the credit of the country to no small extent, and tbe Ions of one year's production would produce such a financial crisis as would overwhelm the Radicals, and pro duce such a reaction against the m, in th ! North, that tbey wculd never be beard f . 1 ! gm xepta ev.l g-an who once in-j fratej and cursed the country. .-j ' ' ' liii' HIM, 1IAKD. It wilT be recollected that old Thnd Steveiia was so ill that he could not read bis spiM-ch on the confiscation bill, and be sent it up to the clerk to be rend. Iu it occurred the following qaotations: He commanded tlio men and the women to borrow from their eunjiding nenjhbort jewels ot silver and Jewels ol cold, and that lliey did so, and spoiled the Kgyptiuns, and vent J'vrih full- haniicii. The Baltimore American says that while this sentence was being read, every eye was turned "on Butler, ' whose chulky fuca assumed all the colors of the rainbow, It was thought the quota tion was niudo by Stevens for the espe cial purpose of hitting Butler.- - ' . ftir The. Hon. A. G.

' JoT" Gen. Miramon has issued a proc lamation declaring ft war of extermina tion. The following is the closing para graph: ,. "Soldiers: the ' gauntlet-has been thrown to ns for a duel to death.

Wild and Fearful Scene---LoflS Two Million tJolIarsV One of the most remarkable events of this very, remarkable day, was .the de struction, by firei of -the new- and magn ificent Lindnll Hotel in St Louis. The origin of the fire is unknown, but it was rat discovered in the roof. Th liepub- Heart thus refers to the scene after the firemen 'abandoned all efforts to save the uilding; - .-.,;';-..-u. To any person who U unacqunloted with the size of the building and did not witness the conflagration, it is impossible to convey an arlequnte idea of the scene as the fire reaehed its -hight within the" broad spaces between the outer walls the antes roared litre a -storm." "ho astonish- n was- thuir fierceness, that it seemed as if they wete .burning Jj-om.ausea of oil. This was doubtless occasioned by the terrific drnnght canned by the heat which transformed tho, immense build- ng with its hundreds ot windows, as were, -into a huge blast turnace. So strong was the upward sweep of the flames that large burning fragments ere driven skywaid, as if projected from the mouth of a-crater. Some of these, khouub there was littlo wind, were car ried away and .fell on tha bouses of- di tant squares; others falling downward lowiy in the vicinity were again orougnt withiu the influence of the whirling vor tices of fire, and again tossed upward on the sheets of liame. smoke and sparks that streamed alott from between th walls of the burning building. The sky wore a frowning, lurid gare lor miles around, and people living away in the couutry-must have thought -the1 whole city was sinking in a sea of flame. The noises on the 'streets grew 'still, the vast multitudes ceased to murmur, all faces were turned toward the stately building consuming in fire. The flames first reached the ground floor near the southeast corner, and then passed from store to store along tbe Washington avenue front westward with fierce ra pidity. ' ' - About this titr.e several consecutive explosions occurred, in the basements under the stores, the precise nature of which it was diflk-uit to determine. - A deadened report would ) heard and then a vt vo ume of black smoke would be Le'.th-J forth from the cellar tJ be replaced in a mom-.-nt by a roaring column of flam'?. ' ' At abuut 11 o'clftk it became evident that Mjme of the wIIs could not itand much longer, and the police commenced clearing a wider t .ai-em all sides around the burning buioiing. , The crowds swayed ri-jwiy buck into the darker streets, and again prewtd on ibe liu s with upturned faces full of interest nd wonderment No and then, at the fail ing and crashing of a floor or ff'rca, numbers wreixd with a panic, and en deavored to rush away on a double q iick, but soon turned and their gie became again fastened in th eeoe with sort ot weird faeintion. V) rainids of fi ltriei shot up from the roof to a great htht i fiery tongues lapped around the crf aie. and volumes of devouring fire priund forth, from, every win Jo in the ToattUi ficei Tbe air was anil, and huge clouds of dark imolti (in whith hone millions i,f (narks, l.ke olden stars) hung over At very fciac" far,Ji ,V, t Lf ' D:ntei bT the rt 4 t ar At rvrry crali a colatna ol irara, soon to Lt Xh exci'menl m great, and V pecp'e wai:i with intense luterfsttle iMiimlilini' of tlni wulln. which nfi-med ilicvitiibln.

At leneth there was great crush iu the emtro near the main entrance. which filled tlie wbole street (Washington avenue) with fire and smoke. 1 hero was a cry that the walla were falling. 'The whole east end on Sixth s'reet. with a portion of the aslnngton avenue front, swayed reeled, toppled and tell with a tremen (Ion., crush, which shook the building all around. vTbia happened nliout 11 r'elok .
