Excitement jy Jicw York.
Washington, Oct. IS. There is the
best authority for saying that President
Johnson has neither approved the propo
sition to withdraw Seymour's name, nor
intimated his wish to lie nominated, or
willingness to accept such a nomination,
hut oQjtlie contrary, he has looked upon
the proposition for a change of candi
dates as injurious and ill-timed.
Utica, Oct IS. A conference took
placo yesterday between Gov. Seymour
and certain members of the National
Democratic Executive Committee in re
lation to some important measure to bo
adopted in the present canvass. During
the conference Gov. Seymour alluded to
tlio suggestions in some quarters as to a
change in tho Presidential ticket He
said any change which shonld bo made
should include his withdrawal ; that he
was nominated against his wishes, and it
would be a relief to hira if any other
man were substituted for him. The
eoramittco replied that no change had
been contemplated by any of them, and
fi.nf ;n Hioir imhnnent nothing could bo
;n;,inniitn thn Democratic cause as a
change of candidates, and they refused
to ontertnin anv such question.
New YoRk.Oct K The excitement
among the Democrats contiuues, though
it is less livclv than yesterday. Seymour
and lllair telegraphed to the Executive
Committee that they will act for tho best
interests of tho party; but, from present
indicators, they will have no occasion to
resign.' Democrats are betting five to
.mjo thoro will bo no change of candi
dates ot platlonn. Several Demacrats,
nmongtKem Sweeney, Tweed and Har
vey C. Murphy, succest a republication
of1" tho Droudliead letter, and a denial or
revolutionary intentions on the part of
General lllair. There is said to be a
movement 011 fot for compromising mat-,
tors between the two parties in this State,
,and securing the votos of conservative
Republicans fur Hoffman.

Wapuinoton, Oct. 19. It has been
made known to the War Department that
the arms recently captured on the Miss
issippi tiver, were privately purchased by
I he Governor of Arkansis. and Senator
McDonald. They expected the legislature
would appropriate necessary money to buy

P.TEKsrit, Va., Oct. 1". In a con

was on hi way home, he said the Southern
people were as loyal as any people in the
Norlh. The two races he found friendly
.Unuu,l inward each other, and the ne
groes were peaceable in all cases except
where they were incited or influenced by
carpct-baggerx. Nothing was calculated to
do cu-iter harm than the disfranchisement
of the whites, which was more extensive,
lhan he had any idea of, and if the people
of the North i-niild seethe condition of the
Sooth an he has, leconetruction would soon

South despotically, but that could not last,

Wm. H. Hodges, Arkansas Penitentiary
Contractor, and one of the most infamous
carpet-baggers of that State. It is also a
matter of notoriety that the pretense of tho
arms having been ordered by .the Stale
government of Arkansas, is a falsehood, it
being a matter of record that no appropria
tion has been mtidefor that purpose. It is
equally well-known that the Secretary of
War has refused to distribute any of the
arms appropriated by Congress to the
Southern States. And it is equally well
known that Hodges, who accompanied
these arm3 lo Memphis, is the agent of the
Radical Executive Committee at Little
Rock, and a prominent leader in the Loyal
Leagues.
One after another, tho commanders of the
White and Arkansas river packets refused
to be the mediums of introducing into Ar
kansas arms and ammunition, to be placed
in the hands of ignorant negroes for use
against the white people of the State, and
the inauguration of a reign of terror. It
was simply impossible to Eecure their
transportation ; eo the Memphis and Little
Rock Radical leaders counseled together
as to the most effectual method of turning
the afiair into capital against Southern
white men, and for use in behalf of Radi
calism North. The little steamer Hesper,
a worthless, unseaworthy tub, about as
large as an old fashioned cooking stove,
was provided with a Radical captain and
Radical crew at Little Rock, and sent here
for the arms. The commander a noto
rious bloviating Radical named Houston
no sooner reached the Memphis wharf
than, in accordance with the programme,
he regaled every crowd surrounding him
with a recital of what he intended to do.

graphed throughout the North as a "Ku

few sensational lies were alone necessary to
put the matter in shape for the Northern
Radical press. It might not be without ef.
feet in November.
Thursday afternoon the Hesper left with
the arms, and on the same night she was
liniroVn and stripped of her careo. The
programme was carried out to the letter,
and if the masks had been removed rpra
the faces of the hundred men who pitched
the guns overboard, more than one Radical
leader would doubtless have been recog
nized. Many were reported missing from
the city between 4 r. M. Thursday and snn
ri3e yesterday.
For two or three days certain leading
Radicals, who were known to b5 interest
ing themselves in" the matter of these arms,
had scarcely been able to restrain them
selves. Their faces beamed with satisfaci
lion, and one could almost read therein:
"What a big thing we could tell you if we
wanted to." It was evident that something
was "in the wind," as it is now a fact that
a "big thing" occurred. Throughout yes
terdayeven before the news of the cap
ture arrived Radicalism was all smiles
and smirks. Little - groups met in door
ways, and in the rain, under lamp-posts,
pressed each other's hands knowingly,
poked each other in the ribs festively, and
chuckled and whispered and winked at
each other as merrily asbrigands gloating
over a prize of diamonds and rubies. The
fate of Hotlgeo' consignment could he plain

saw them required any further light on the

high officials rubbed their hands gleefully,
shrugged their shoulders knowingly, and

needed, and this explains the whole matter.
The following particulars of the seizure
were obtained, in substance, from Captain
John Ford, of the impressed tng Nettie
Jones :
About five o'clock Thursday afternoon,
the tug Nettie Jones, Captain John Ford,
left the wharf for Fort Pickering, having
a barge in tow, and intending to return
with lumber. The tug reached its destina
tion, and landed at about half-past five
o'clock. No one was in sight, but the
nn l.-.l Q-irK' been "made fast" be
fore the spot was covered with men, all so
securely masked as to be unrecognizable.
They were prfibably a hundred in num
ber, and had evidently been concealed for
some time under the niuii. nau mcj
sprung out of the earth their appearance
before the startled crew conld hardly have
been more sudden. Without epeaking a
word, they quickly boaided the tug, took
possession of the pilot-honae and engine
room, and ordered Captain Ford to imme
diately start down the river, adding, by
way of an incentive to promptness, that
somebody might be hurt in the event of a
refusal.
As soon as Captain Ford could suffi
ciently recover from his fright to decide
whether his unbidden guests were a hun
dred or a thousand in number, and whether
the height ol ordinary men or iau n
church steeples, he comprehended tint re
sistance was out of the question. Ac
cordingly he ordered one of the crew lo
cast ofl the line, and in a few moments the
tiig was rapidly steaming for President's
Island chute. Upon taking possesion,
the new commanders kept a vigilant eye
on the crew, not allowing any onu of them
to leave his post for a moment. The en
gineer was not permitted to oil his ma-i.:..-,t

dently fearing he might suddenly put it out
of repair.
The head of the lug was held steadily
down the river until approaching Cat
Island, twenty-five miles below, near the
Atkansis shore. This was between 7 J and
S o'clock, and. Captain Ford was oidered
to run his tug alongside the little steamer
Hesper, which left the city dnring the af-
ernoon with the cargo of Radical arms
Ifor Arkansas, and was lied up, wooding.

While the demolition was progressing

intervals throughout the night from the

The Hesper, after picking up her fugi
tive Captain and his brother, turned up
stream, and arrived at the city wharf yes
terday afternoon. The facts of the board
ing being known, her appearance attracted
considerable attention, and the officers and
crew were greeted with numerous questions,
mainly of a humorous character. Some ef
the questioners wanted to know what had
become of "them arms ;" and the Captain
was afforded several opportunities to giv
a list of the names of the new "steyedores"
who had S3 rapidly discharged his cargo.
Captain Houston and the crew answered
some of the questions good naturedly, and
were evidently in a good humor. Their
faces wore a self-satisfied air, unlike that of
men supposed to bo the victims of an out
rage. Tho boat was placed in charge of the

St. Louis, Oct. 16, 1863. The city haa
been in a state of great excitement all day
over the rnmored resignation of Seymour
and Blair. Blair's friends openly reported
that the General, who arrived last night,
had assured them that bis rciignation was
in the hands of the General Committee.
As soon as it was known that Blair had
visited the Evening Diipatelt office, the edi
tor of which Is his personal friend and
counselor, the appearance of the paper was
looked for with great interest. The editorial
upon the subject contained the following
sentence :
