Tappan, who leavei immediately for New Mexico. Geni. Sherman and Sheridan go thither alio. Thery will join Tappaa at Denver. Upon arriving here the peace party fonnd awaiting them a promiscuous crowd of Cheyenneg, who escorted them to the Ford Eons, and the Rolling Hotel, where "Sheridan and Spotted-Tail were called ont by the crowd. They responded to the call, Sheridan making a ihort speech, and Spotted-Tail remaining mnte. . ' Mr. Tnrner and the ladies from St. Louis, in company with the Commission ers, went out on the railroad to the sum mit of the Black Hills. Tbay return here to-night, and leave for St. Louis to-morrow. Gen. Sheridan reviewed the troops at the post yesterday, and in the evening attended a grand ball given by the di cers in honor of the Commission. Great excitement was prevailing here on the day of our arrival in consequence of tb vigilance committee; one man purporting to be such, having gone in the dead hour of night and shot a man in his own house, his wife being a witness of the deed. The alleged cause of the brutal outrage is, that the victim owed one of the party a sum of money, which he re fused to pay. .The murderers were all masked as vigilants, against whom a strong feeling of condemnation exists. Speeches were made in the course of the day, denouncing their conduct, and it was resolved to support the civil officers in the performance of their duty, if ne cessary. L&rge patches of enow are seen in the hollows; and our train passed through a snow-drift, through which a cutting bad been made twelve feet shigh and about half a mile in extent The city contains swarms of people, half of whom have no employment. They fill the hotels and gambling-houses. Large numbers oome here to work on the road, paying out half fare to the company, on condition that they offer themselves for work. " e Outrageous Order from Receiver Innn. From th Nashville Union and Dispatch, 14th. J - One of the most outrageous orders ever issued by a petty officer came from the office of the Nashville and Northwestern railroad yesterday. The order was sent out by Receiver Innes, and suspends the running of all irains beyond Union City, the border town that marks the Tennessee and Kentucky State line, and at which the Mobile and Ohio railroad forms a junction with the Nortwestern road. This cnts off the Kentuckians from two of the most important thoroughfares in all Ten nessee, and is aimply done in mean spirit of revenge for the action taken by the city of Hickman in filing an applica tion tor injunction to prevent the issuance of the State bonds to the bogus and irre sponsible directors in whose hands the road has been placed. The order cuts off eighteen miles of road, which had been graded before the portion of the road traversing West Ten nessee was built, and to the completion of which the city of Hickman subscribed fifty thousand dollars. The feeling aroused by the wholesale usurpation already in vogue is intense-, and it is even doubtful that Gov. Brown low, notwithstanding hit alterations for the Tice Presidency of the United States, tad the necessity of pulling every Radi cal string to that end, will longer sustain the otw A rectory. It it asserted that he will not order the issuance of a tingle dollar in bon is until the count act, and the only crumb of comfort which the aew coacern hat to pick at it their confident belief that Judge Trigg, at Kaoxville, at no jurisdiction, and cannot grant the injunction asked for bylhe Ktntockiant. the Hlgaott Poiat.

It was urged in argument that the act of Congress doet not authorize the pro ceedings instituted in the Circuit Conrt. The answer to this proposition must be determined by the construction of the act . The first section provides that property n.a.1 iwt o.i1 -ftVia rnhollirvn. with consent of the owner, shall be the ' lawful subject of prize and capture wnerever jounu, nd -...a. itiViAcliitv nf the President to cause it " to be seized, confiscated and condemned. The second section provides that such 11 n.iva. mnA A.ntnra ahall ha onndemned in the District or Circuit Court of the United States having jurisdiction ot tne mnnni n, in ailmtraltv. in anv district in which the same may be seized, or into which the tame may be taken and pro ceedings commenced." The third section provides tnai me Attorney General, or any district attor nv nf tha United States, in which said property may at the time be, may insti tute the proceedings ot condemnation, . . . .t L. I 1 1 and in sucn cases mev Bnati oe wuunv n tha fcon.fi r nf tha TTnited States : or any person may file an information with sucn attorney, in wnicn case me pro- A.a1in-a .lto.ll lia fnr t.tlA MA fif flUch informer and the United States in equal parts. 1 Tt ia anffiniantlv nhvinilA ibftt tb.0 gene ral object of this enactment was to pro mote auppression ot reoeiuon Dy subject ing property employed in aid of it with the owner's consent to confiscation. It extended to all descriptions of property, real or personal, on land or on water. All alilra var. mada anhientA of vtrize and capture, and, under direction of the President, of seizure, confiscation ana condemnation. The act must be construed with refer ence to this general purpose. , In ordi nary nse the words . !' prizes and cap ture refer, doubtless, to captures 00 water as maritime prize; but in tbia lection they plainly refer to property taken on land at well at on water, and the duties prescribed to the President include the taking ot wis property oj .t;i n,aaa., aa avail ai hv nAval nr mili tary force, and sanction proceedings for confiscation ana conaemnauon in oivu course without regard to the mode of seizure. The second and third sections pre scribe the action to be taken in the courts. This action is described, gener ally, in the third section, as '-proceed- ings tor condemnation, to oe insiuuieu by the Attorney General, or aay district attorney. And jurisdiction of these "proceedings is given to tne uistnoi or Pirciill flnnrr. hnvintr tnriadiction of the amount, Or in admiralty, in any district where the property is seized or into which it may be taken. ' This language, is certainly not clear Rntwa think that the construction which. at we understand, has been generally in tha diatrint and circuit COnrtS in cases of proceedings for the condem nation ot real estate or property on inu, 1. .nkatantiBll .nrP.Al.

Such proceedings do not necessarily onstitute a cause in admiralty. When instituted for condemnation of property on land, they have relation exclusively to matters which, in their nature, are not of admiralty cognizance. But Congress J-kl. iri-a in-iadintinn nf anch ui.j, uuuw.ioaa, Pt' J ' jroceeding to the circuit aa well as to the district courts, ana niaj suhuum exercise of thit ttatutory jurisdiction in tbe forms and modet analogous to those used in admiralty. Aod thit, we think, was the purpose of tbe act. The difficulty of coostracticn arises from the termt in which jurisdiction ii .ranted " to any district or circuit court having jurisdiction of tha amount or in admiralty, in any district where the property it found." It it said that tht disjunctive "or" rettrictsthe jurisdiction in admiralty to the district courts. And the view it certainly not without tome warrant in the phraieoloey of the act. But when we look beyond the merewordt to th obviout intent we cannot help tee fngthat the word "or" mut be taken conjanctively ; and that the tense of the law is that both the circuit and the dn trict conrtt shall have Jnn.dicnoa ac cording to tha amoBnl," .

' That this contraction carries into effect the trot Intention of Congress tufficiently appeara on referenct to tha act of July 17, 1862,t in which it it pro vided expressly tbat proceedings for confiscation shall conform at nearly at mar be to proeeedingi in admiralty or revenue cases. ' Wa think, therefore, that tha circuit court bad jurisdiction of tbt cause. . It remains to be considered whether the decree of the conrt can be reviewed here on appeal No appeal is expressly provided by the act of 18GI. The Con stitution, however, gives to thit court appellate jurisdiction in all cases of which tha inferior courtt of tha United States have eriginal jurisdiction, subject to such exceptioni and regulations as Congress shall make; and the act of 1803,. providei generally for appeal, from decisions in admiralty. Soma of thejud.es think it a reasonable construc tion of the act that it was not intended to except decrees under it from tht ap pellate jurisdiction of thit court; but that it was intended to apply to them the general regulations of admiralty pro ceedings in respect to appellate at well at to original juritdiction ; while a ma jority of the court it of opinion that ap pellate jurisdiction may be taken of the cause, because the proceedings below, though in a case of common law jurisdio tion, were substantially according to the course in admiralty; but only for the purpose of reversing the decree of the circuit court as irregular, aad directing a new trial. We proceed then to the questions arising upon the merits. The case may be briefly stated, . A square of ground in New Orleans, with the buildings upon it was leased on the 17th of September, 1861, by one Leence Burthe to William C Cook and Francis L. Cook, who, in October or No v.mber, established on tbe premises a manufactory of arms fortherebel govern ment, and continued the business until the occupation of the city by the national forces in the spring of 18C2. 1 In October, 1861, the Union Insurance Company of New Orleans took a mort gage from Burthe upon three undivided twenty-fifths of the property to secure the payment of a note for thirty-five hun dred dollars due from him to the com pany, i Subsequently suit was instituted upon the mortgage, and in due course a decree of sale was rendered, under which the in surance company became purchasers of the mortgaged premises for fourteen hun dred dollars, and on the 26th of Febru ary, 1864, received the Sheriff i deed of the property. In April, 1864, the company obtained a judgment for twenty-seven hundred and thirty-Cve dollars, beingthe balance due on the note of Burthe, and was about to sell the residue of the property, when further proceeding was arrested by a military order. It appears further, from the evidence, that three minors of the Burthe family were legal ownert of four thirty-sixthl of the property on which tbe gun factory was established. By. the decree of the Circuit Court the whole property was condemned as for feited to the United States, except the four thirty-sixths, called in the decree four twenty-fifths, of the minors. An appeal was taken by the Union In surance Company and another claimant who hag abandoned the prosecution of his appeal, No appeal was taken by tha TTnited State, from that nart of the decree which exempted the interests of the minors from condemnation. There is no reasonable doubt that the Cooks established tbeir manufactory of arms on the ground leased by him to them with the full knowledge and con sent of Leonce Burthe. It thus became within the express terms of the act the lawful subject of prize aod capture from tha time nf that establishment. ' ! The evidence in respect to the rights of the insurance company is not so clear. To the extent of the interest created by the mortgnee, the company may, doubt less, be properly regarded as owner. But there is no direct proof of consent to the unlawful use; and, indeed, no. proof at all, except the fact of taking the mortgage, and it doet not appear that th Cooks had taken possession under their lease before the execution of the mortgnge. We do not think this evidence of con sent sufficient to support a forfeiture. ' The counsel for the company very nrorerlv abandoned tnv claim under tbe judgment recoveredTor the balance due on tbe mortgage note, tne ioneiuir was incurred when the Cooks went into actual nse of tbe premises under the lease, and tbe subsequent seizure for condemnation divested all intermediate liens. - ' The decree of the Circuit Court must be reversed as irregular, and the cause remanded for new trial in couformily with this opinion. The property seized having been real estate, the proceedings on the new trial most be conformed in roaneot to trial bv iarv. and the ex ceptions to evidence to the course of proceeding by information on tne com mon law side of the court incase of seiz ure npon land.

Ihe Sarah, Wbeat., 39L Radical Siot In St. Bernard Piriib.. Day before yesterday a seriout and shameful riot occurred in the parish of St Bernard. The facta we shall give were obtained from an eye-witness, aad may be relied upon at substantially correct Wo premise by saying a more unprovoked and wanton attack npon the rights and libertiea of the people wat never before made in thit country. For more than a week previous, netica had been given of a picaic aad barbecue, to take place at Mr. Marrero planta tion, svnten miles below tbe city, and which waa to dote a canvasning tour of tbe parish by Messrs. A- W. WAlker aad Anthony SAmSola, the first Democratic caadidata for Congreat in the fint Con gressional diitrict and the secend Dem ocratic presidential elector in the tame diimct The object of the meeting wat to promote amity and good fesling be tween tbe white and black populations, and mny gentlemen from tbt city were inviud too pre nt . In tbo meantime the Waraioih party d.viied a plaa to break ap the picnic With tbat orject io view tbey tailed a r optical meeting to be held at th. court o.ar, two bvi thit tide of Marrero LED i plantation. At ibtir meeting they sta tioned picket gnardt along the road, armed with mneketa and shot guoi, who stopped all tha colored men on I heir way to tha picu:c, aod in tome instance! even white citizens, whom they threatened with violence. They forcibly dragged one colored man from tht carriage of a white gentleman, and by threata and actual violence compelled all colored rn to join their political meetiag. Some oTibese colored men, however, sncceeded ia breaking through their lines and went on to tbe picnic In the meantime everything at the pio nio wat passing off with the utmost har mony and good feeling. Whit and black men, ail teemed to enjoy the occa sion, and whilst tbe repast wat being prepared and arranged, Col. W.M.Small wood was called upon to address tht meeting, and did to in a most appropri ate manner, urging tha whita people to cultivate and encourage tha most ami able feelinsi toward the blaeks. and the blacks to act in tha same spirit toward tbe whites. It waa the common interett, he argued, of white and black, that wa hould all be friendt, and labor to pro mote the happiness and prosperity of each other; and tbe man who sought to alienate the feeli ngs of the two racet wat the enemy of both. Let tha black man stand by the while man, be added, and the white man would then stand by him ; but if he attempted to compass tbe rnin of the white race, at many bad men had urged him to do, that course wonld only end in hit own rnin and be fatal to the peace of the country. The speech was well adapted to the time and tha occa sion, and wat received with hearty ap plause and satisfaction by everybody present. After Col. Smallwood had concluded, Dr. Knapp wat called uponWid pro ceeded to address tbe people in very much tbe tame ttrain ; but in the midst of his address drums were beard down the road in the direction of the Warmoth meeting. In the distance could be "dis tinctly seen the approaching column with flaps flying. On it came, and at the bead of it wat H. C. Warmoth, the Radical candidate lor Governor, accompanied by fol. J. H. Sypher, Radical candidate' for Congress,- Dr. Southworth, of tbe , Republican news paper, Gen. A. L. Lee, Major Copeland, Radical candidate for Stale Senate, and Mr. John Pardee and Thomas Ong. In passing, these individuals made a slight halt role nP to '00't -nt0 lne 'nc'0' sure where the Conservative pionio wat being held. They then moved on, and immediately after them came their black followers marching in column like sol diers, and all' nore or lest well armed, some with double-barreled shot-gunt, some with muskets, and tbe balance with' clubs and pistols'. Warmoth established himself at Ong'a residence, half a mile below, whilst the rioters proceeded to execute the programme that had evi dently been prearranged for them. In the meantime courier! were con stantly passing between those headquar ters and the negro rioters. After War moth had reached Ong't place, all the bands there were marshaled and pushed forward as a reinforcement to the rioters. As soon as the black column came op posite the picnic party they commenced firing their gum and shouting and yell ing like lavages. With loud impreca tions they declared their intention to murder certain Conservatives, particu Inry Grief Robinson, a colored Conserva tive orator ; and tbey sought every op portunity to do so, and would aio doubt have accomplished their purpose to wards him had he not been hurried off into the woods for security. Tbe rioters Lcontinued to move op and down the road, occasionally bring tbeir guns, and en deavoring to get at the Conservative col ored men. As was to be expected, when the rioters that presented themselves, the Conservatives kept themselves within the inclosure, but several colored men were dragged into tha road and terribly beaten. Two of tbera were wounded by gunshot one severely, perhaps mortally. Mr. Mannel Messa, a white man, received a shot through hit hat The colored man who was to severely wounded had pre viously been very badly beaten with a club, and at the time he wag shot was being taken home by his friends. The Radicals jumped up into the wagon, in which he was lying, to shoot him, and did shoot him as he lay in the bottom of the wagon. - Tha rioting wag kept up for more than two hours, and but for the courageous efforti of the conservative white men, would have proved a most bloody affair. It is a fact that should not escape remark, that the white radicals did not make the least effort to quell the disturbance, although fully cognizant of all that was taking place. Tbe first gun shot oc curred in the hearing of Warmoth, as it is impossible tbat he could have gotten more than two or three hundreds yards on his way to Ong't before it occurred. Besides, couriers were seen going to aod returning from hit headquarters during the riot. One of our cotemporaries says that the interval between the time that Warmoth passed and the arrival of the regular column waa about fifteen min utes." We are assured by a number of gentlemen who were present that the in terval did not exceed two or three min utes, and that when Warmoth passed, hit followers were not more than two hun dred yards behind him. It is the belief of every white man present at the picnic that the whole thing was planned and arranged at the Warmoth meeting before it adjourned, and wat a diabolical at tempt to get ap a riot between th whites and tha blarka Nem OrUnnn Orwnt- no i ton Texas.
