Below will bo found what is deemed a
proper text from which to preach the
funeral sermon of Ben Butler : From
Jeremiah.iiL, 19 : "And tho basins, and
the firepans, and the bowls, and the caul

spoons and tho cups ; that which was of
cold, in gold, and that which was of sil

took away."
The exQueen of Spain left behind her
p70 carriages, several splendid Arab and
English horses, as well aB the finest col
lection of mules extant in the coach
houses and stables of her royal palace at
Madrid. One vehicle, that which annu
ally conveyed her Most Catholic Majesty
to the opening ol the Cortes, is a marvel
ous specimen of gilding and carving, and
gorgeous aro the trappings belonging
thereto. More curious as a historic relic
is the quaintly-sculptured vehicle in
which Jane, Charles V's insano daughter,
traveled with the body of her dead hus
band, Phillip the Handsome.
The New York critics, in the absence
of something better to do, are finding
fault with tho size of Miss Kellog's
jiamer, uid the angle ot her Grecian

of life abroad have been unfavorable to
that charming simplicity of manner
which characterized her efforts before
going to Europe. French flattery, Eng
lish toadyism, and othor causes are
alleged to have made sad inroads upon
the natural freshness of her acting. One
or two are harsh enough to assert that
she has become affected, while another
cautions tho young ladies of Brooklyn
who are especially susceptible of her
example, to guard against adopting the

Special to tho JiOuiville Courier.
Washington, Now.2 The statement of a
New York journal that Seward had cable
advices that a mixed commission of sixteen
persons'had been agreed on for adjustment
of the Alabama claims by England is un
founded. The President regards the idea
as an absurdity. He thinks that a number
of persons would never agree on any one
question, and before they concluded their
labors a score or more new claims would
be brought up before them.
llie removal of Gen. Keynolds, for his
audacious interference with the judiciary

Radicals have brought quite a pressure to
bear to induce the authoritiej to hold it
back until after the election, as they
claimed that the Democrats would en
deavor to make capital out of the increase
it is likely to show. The total receipts of

Read, white men of the South, read the
infamous instructions sent out from Head
quarters at Washington city to the leaders
of every Union League iu the South.
Colored men read them. They tell you
the estimation put upon you by "the leaders
whom you have sworn to obev. You are
their "slaves"' they say it, "and you now
can reid for yoursclvn the damnable
means they have employed to make you
such. Will yon longer be duped? Shall
they incite riots and get you killed that
they may make political capital at the
North ? Shall they burn your cabins, "kill
your stock," and "destroy your crops" to
excite you against yournatural friends, the
Southern whites? Will you, can you be
longer led by these base men ?
Men of the North, of every shade of
political opinion, you can now see clearly
whence have come the murders, the arsons,
and the riots iu the South, out of which so
much political capital has been made with
you at the expense of the people of that
section, and the Democratic party can
you permit the party whose counsels, ad
vice, and instruction's lave led to such
fatal results, and who have gone so deep in
crime, longer to rule?
Washington, D. C, August 14, 1SC3.
Br.OTnER : It i3 with fselings of deep re
gret and alarm that the loyal body of the
U. L. and C. G. learn that the negroes of
the South are leaving the Republican
ranks, and indentifying themselves with
the Democrasic, and to kucIi an extent is
this dissatisfaction existing among tho
negroes in each and all the Southern
States, that it is now by only applying
severe remedies and by unceasing labor
that we will he enabled to control the elec
toral vote of the South.
The society has sent a copy of this cir
cular to each leader of the U. L. and C. G.
in each Congressional district throughout
the South, and it look to von for a faithful
performance of each of the following
suggestions :
You will make your usual reports, and
by the former channel, and state precisely
the slate of affairs in your district, and if
you continue to lose from your ranks, or
are gaining back the recreants.
Firstly. You must hold tri-weekly meet
ings of your league, and .n much oftener
as the interests of the party and the excite
ment of the negroes will admit. During the
session tell them of some outrage
(imaginary if uecessary) as having been
committed against their race by tbe Con
servatives, and in strong terms denounce
the guilty perpetrators. Then swear them
to secrecy, and by our usual methods
make an impression on their feeble minds
and convince them of your plan to place
them in power, and make them the masters
of tho South, etc Deplore their present
position and argue with them that it is
their fault alone they (Knit possess the
Secondly. Drill them like soldiere and
be prepared for any emergency. Control
the negroes like slaves. Keep them in
alarm and excitement all the time, and
have one a Bpy upon another.
Caution the backsliders of the vengeance
of the TT. L. & G. C. and by intimidation
and the love of power and freedom
threaten them with evil. Should indiffer
ence or apathy exist among them, you
must then appeal to their ignorance, charg
ing the Democracy with p Bcheme to re
enslaves them, and, in failing to do this,
they propose to kidnap them as soon as
Seymour and Blair are elected and sell
them in Cuba and Brazil.
Thirdly. You must promise them farms,
mules and bread for voting for Grant and
Colfax, and assure them that ihey would
have been supplied with them long since
had not Andrew Johnson and thp Democ
racy interfered. They are credulous
enough to believe this, and by such assur
ances you can work to a good advantage.
Fourthly. Promise ihem the majority
of all the offices as soon as Grant and Col
fax are elected, stating in excuse for in
quiry (delay?) that their Northern and
Southern friends demand them at present,
but they shall have their choice after the
election. You can calm their excited de-
minds with this, and. when once in power
we can act as we please.
Fifthly. Prejudice their minds against'
the fact that the native Southerners are
their friends, poison every friendly rela
tion existing between the two races, and
state that they only allow them to work
their farm3 for profit, and the fear that the
.uepubiican party would conbscate them
and give them to the. negroes. Impress
npon their minds that the lands rightly
neiong to them, .exhort them, however.
not to attemnt to ncssesa them at nresent.
hut never allow" them to lose sight of their
imaginary and assumed ownership.
nounce the Uonservalives, and convince
them that it is this cower alone that is
keeping them out of possession. They aro
avaricious and stupid enough to credit
Sixthly, You mu3t abuse the Democ
racy by calling them "Copperheads,"
"Rebels," "Secessionists," Traitois," "Slave-
holders," etc.. and educate the negroes to do
the same : and rather than arrest nnv ill.
jeeiing, irritate it and unite the negt oe3 on
the side of their race. You can thus be
instrumental in provoking a riot, and we
will make thamost of it in the campaign.
A riot now. ench aa wa3' inaugurated in

Under the protection of the Frcedmen's
Bureau and the teaching of the loyal
Fetish, the negroes of the South commit
more crime every week than the aggregate
crime among them during, the two hun
dred years of slavery. Rape, robbery
and murder are daily occurrence. Still,
amid all tlie outrages committed, there has
been a good deal of the ludicrous not un
worthy the Haversack.
hen the order came irom the iig Boss
of each of the "five districts" to put ne
groes on the jury, tho colored brethren
were not slow to learn that the pay was
two dollars per day. Many of them
walked ten and fifteen miles to town,
saying that they had come to "jine the
jury. Une ot these, who may bear tne
generic namo ot 1'ompey squash, did get
on tho jury. During the whole trial, he
sat meditating upon tho goodness ot the
Big Boss in letting him have a chance to
get his two dollars a day. He understood
not a word that was eaid by the witnesses
and lawyers, but his meditations were,
nevertheless, sweet upon the forthcoming
greenbracks. ''Do ole wooman shill git a
rael, shore nuff caliker frock, and shan't
go to mectin' in a copperas frock, liko de
white trash. ' In tho midstof these pleas
ant reflections, the Judgo gavo a solemn
charge to the jury, explaining the points
of law and enjoining them to discharge
their duty faithfully. The jury retired
to their room. "Did jou understand the
Judge's charge, Mr. Squash?" asked ono
of the jurors. Instantly Po mpcy's face
became a shade blacker, his eyes rolled
in his head, and the whites of -his eyes
looked like snow flakes on a coal pile
"Bles3 de Lord, i3 de Judge chargin' us ?
I tot we wos a gwine to git pay !"
We will conclude the anecdote. We
never liked the style, "the rest of this
thrilling story is to be found in onicr's
Ledger next week." Cloe got her "rael
caliker frock," and looks down, with
queenly contempt, on "de white trash."
Persons unaccustomed to drinking tea
are aware of the peculiar sleeplessness
which follows an indulgence in the bever
age. This effect is due to an alkaloid
which exists in tea, known to scientific
men by the name of " theine." A medical
student in Boston recently tried some ex
periments with this substance, the result of
which he describes as follows :
" I took myself theine gr. xii., at about
2 r. M., by the mouth, and about two hours
after there came on a state .of great physi
cal restlessness, and at the same time a
very uneasy Btate' of mind, which Leh
mann describes in this connection as a
'mental anguish.' Soon after, there was a
tremulousness, most marked in my hands
and arms. On attempting to write and con
trol the muscles of the hand, the hand
trembled so violently that it was impossible
to write with any regularity, nor .could it
be restrained for more than a few seconds.
My mind was also in an excessively un
comfortable and anxious state, which ad
mitted not the slightest rest, whether I sat
or lay or attempted reading. This lasted
perhaps two hours, when there were no
other phenomena, except sleeplessness,
until 2 A. 31., having gone to bed at 10.
Meanwhile, the mind wa3 in a state of
most active and persistent thinking, in
spile of all attempts at forgetfulnes?."
The same substance, injected under the
skin of toads, produced death in a very
Bhort time, and the experimenter came to
the conclusion that theine is to all intents
anr. purposes a poison. Still, tea-drinkers
will probably say, as the tobacco chewer
die. when told mat toDacco was a poison,
" If it be a poison, it is a very slow one."

An important action ia nn triit in ii
Supreme Court (Circuit) of Brooklyn New
j.ors, ueiore juuge uimert, in which near
ly one hundred dry goods merchants of
New York are interested. The action wa3
hroaght against the merchants by Mr.
Leonard G. Klinck, who claims 30,000
damages for false imprisonment and mali
cious prosecution. It appears, as shown in
the complaint, that Mr. Klinck was arres

seventy-five others who charged him with

injuring ms goou name and bringing him
into public disgrace ; that they combined
together to prosecnto him, caused him to
be hrought before Justice Hegan and im
prisoned for six days; that he had to give
bail in S500 for his appearabce. On the
12th of February, 18C7, he was held to ap
pear at the Court of Special Sessions. He
was tried there on the 2Gth of February,

It appears the trouble crew out of the
alleged failure of the dry goods firm of

the plaintiff Klinck was in with them
caused his arrest with others. Klinck kept

Last night the Sheriff of St. Bernard,
Antoine Challaire, brought to the Parish
Prison, in this city, eleven prisoners from
his parish, accused of being participants in
the recent riots there. Two of them are
white men, both of whom are Justices of
the Peace, named William Gattschalk and
Frank Gleason ; the rest are negroes.
It appears that these two white men, to
gether with their colored associates, Cyp
rian Joseph, Nathaniel Taylor, William
Gufney, William Simms, Thomas Drew,
Isaac Dunbar, John Bajerre, Pitt Ellis and
Adam Laire, are the leaders of the Radical
element in that locality, and have been
Bince the riot industriously employed in
stirring up dissension and inciting the ne-
negroes to renewed and repeated acts of
outrage against the planters.
A few nights ago they went to a gentle
man's house, ordering him to leave ; an
other man they attempted to kill. The two
white men are the worst characters in the
parish, and the Sheriffs say are more deeply
responsible than any other in bringing
about the troubles there. Our reporter
visited the prison this morning, and
f through the kindne33 of Mr. Emile Ruez,
the officer in charge, was permiiieu 10 see

Onr Utcs and
The fearful consequences to result from
negro supremacy are aptly illustrated by
the course of the lately enfranchised ne
groes in this city. -Every demonstration
they make is attended by outrages all the
more shameful because utterly unprovoked.
Whenever they parade, every squad is of
ficered by a negro armed with a drawn
sword: while it is safe to presume that
nearly every one ol these new-made voters
carries concealed weapons.
It i3 but a short time ago that they held
a meeting at the City Hall at which a full
cimpany of armed and uniformed Zouaves
were present. At the conclusion of their
proceedings they sacked stores, carried off
their contents and destroyed the furniture
and fixtures. Another time they serenaded
Mayor Bowen, and after his addre3 they
ouuku a mu; eiurc, nmuuiDg ninuowsanu
bottles, and indulged in manv similar
amusements alongthe line of march. Their
recent terrible outrages are fresh in the
memories of oar readers. An aged and
honored citizen, a high ofEcerof the Grand
Lodge of Free Masons, while peaceably
proceeding from the hall to his home, was
brutally assaulted by a band of negroes
who had been parading flie streets seeking
to create a riot, and was cruelly beaten
with clubs for no offence whatever. Police
officers were assaulted and almost killed.
White women were insulted and brutally
beaten. Stores were sacked and windows
smashed all along the route. Another
time an inoffensive spectator was struck
with a razor and killed.
But our space will not permit uj to par
ticularize further. The negroes have,
since these outrages, openly proclaimed
their purpose the next ime they paraded
to clean out establishments " where they
couiu get, sometning," and their full in
tention to .do so cannot be doubted. Hear
ing that a demonstration was to bo made
last night, the police visited stores alone
Pennsylvania avenue and besought the
ownera to close their establishment?, as
they would no doubt be attacked, and they
(the police) were powerless to protect
them !
What a featful commentary is this on
the Radical policy of exalting the negro
above the white ! Here, in the very eye
of the government, in the very face of the
Bupreme authority of the nation, ihe lives
and the property of our citizens are openly
threatened, and the authorities proclaim
themselves powerlesa to defend ns 1 Des
pite all these robberies and murders, not a
negro ha3 been brought to justice, and
while Radical rulecontinues probably none
ever will.
The people of the North do not hear of
these things, and when they do they think
them exaggerated. The Radical papers
carefully exclude all reports of them, and
denounce the accounts in Conservative
journals as "Rebel lies," at the same time
thcirown columns are crowded with manu
factured reports of " Rebel " outrages.
Could the Northern people but witness for
themselves the condition to which the negro-ruled
South is reduced by the outra
geous legislation of a Radical Congress,
the last vestige of Radicalism would be
speedily swept from the land. Still, we
are not without strong confidence in the
intelligence and patriotism of the people,
and their firm -purpose to atulaia their

Mr. Bacon, to whom Capt. Folles appeals
as having a knowledge of his course as an
officer of the Frcedmen's Bureau, desires
us to say, that Capt. F., during his entire
residence in Algiers, has demeaned him-sc-If
to be a faithful guardian of the rights
and interests of the freedmen. During
periods of great mortality among them,
and when many times their interests came
in conflict with those of white people, he
manifested a fidelity and courage in caring
for them which won him universal re
spect. The Iosj of his right arm in the service
of the United States has incapacitated him
for many of the labors of life, and should
have given him more generous treatment
from those who served with him. As to
his breaking up Republican meeting! in
Algiers, the fact that none such have been,
broken up is sufficient explanation. If he
has no right to be a Democrat in this free
country, what right has Geo. Hatch to he
a Republican ?

ing Assistant Adjutant General, Brevet
Major B. Hutchins, who informed me that
I was charged with breaking np Republi
can meeting", threatening freedmen with
discharges if they did not vote with the
Democratic party, and that I used my
office and position in favor of the Demo
cratic party. I replied that I was a Demo
crat, but denied the charges, and demanded
an investigation. The same was not
granted ; but I was discharged October 22,
by order of General Hatch, for no other
reason than I was not a Radical. I have
been in the United States service since
1801 ; have discharged my duties honestly
and faithfully, and lost my right arm in
the United States service. And I call
upon General Hatch and all officers con
nected with headquarters of the bureau to
make publicly known through the press
any crime or neglect of duty that I have
committed while I was Assistant Sub

On Monday last we wero shown a phial
containing a living lizard, which, it is
supposed, had been in a woman's stomach
for nearly two years. Dr. Middleton, of
Elora, had been attending a married wo-,
man for about eighteen months. She was
troubled with a gnawing sensation in tho
stomach, and sometimes a jumping or
palpitating there, her appetite was ir
regular, at times totally gone. Tonics
and other medicines wero given but they
afforded no relief. On Sunday last a live
lizard passed away. It is needless to say
that the woman got immediate relief, and
is now ranidlv improvinz in health. The
lizard is about four inches long, nnd ex-.
actly like those seen in Canadian swamps,
beautifully spotted with black on an on
ango ground, and was active ana iiveiy.
THE COTjlOX crop.
A correspondent of tho New York
Serald, writing from Atlanta, Ga., gltes
what 13 evidently a carefully prepued
eslimato of the present cotlca crop. Wa
give the following summary of his view3
and speculations :
On tho whole a larger area of land was
planted in cotton this year than was last
year. Not in all the States, it ia tree, but
in Alabama, Mississippi, Texasj Arksnsa. ,
Tennessee, and probably Louisiana, this
was the case. If the boll worm and cater
pillar had not committed their ravages and
other sources ol injury had remained away,
"c crop mignt have touched two ma-ion
seven hundred and fifty thousand bi!.
He then,describe3 the injuries done by
bought, by the caterpillars, and by the dis
organized state of labor. He says :
To sum up the injury done to the crop
the following estimate will, I think, be
found tolerably correct. In Georgia thre -
eights of the cotton planted has been
. i . ... .
iruf-a; in Aiaoama me same; ia
Florida two-eights; ia Mississippi the
Bame; in South Carolina three-uig'ais ; in
Louisiana two-eighl3- in Arkansas tl
Tennessee the same; in Texas one-eighra.
In North Carolina and Virginia bat little
cotton is grown, and in those States the
damage has been trifling.

To form a fair estimate of the probable
yield this year, it will be neceary t-
take a glance at the last crop. The as
certained yield of 1S67-S wsw ai follows :

Ihe return for Louisiana embraces the
yield 01 Mississippi and part of Arkan-i-,
and for Tennessee parts of Mississippi, Ar
kansas and Alabama, whiia the yield re
ported for Virginia k probably 1 50,00..)
more bales than were grown in the Si it ,
they coming from North Carolina and Ten
nessee. The entire yield 01 the Saa:L
however, did not at the utmost exceed
600,000 bale?, and that tlie present cr .n
will fall short at least half a million, I lae
not the slightest doubt. Speculators nuv
endeavor to increase these figures, but the
actual receipts will prove my correclnesr.
As will be shown hereafter, the fact that a
much larger amount of cotton is heir:; car
ried to market at this time than wa! lajt
year, does not by any means indicate aa
increased yield. After obtaining all the
statistics possible, as well as gathering a
considerable amount of information from
numerous planters, I venture to giva the
ollowiog estimate :

When the present crop first appear 1 i

Twenty-five cents net will give th 1 f -profit,
and if they are wise ther w !! r f
to sell at less. Cotton can be'iucer.3?f.:;.
grown with free labor at fif.een cents V

money if cotton dees not go below twenty
five cents. And there k not the slihte3:
necessity for its doing so. The last crjp

In spite of the cable telegrams rj rul
ing the enormous yield in Egypt thij vc;r,
it i3 very evident that Europe" wiil re I z
many, if not more, bales from us tt.u -c it
son than the above figures ohow. iLa
crop of East India cottoa is partly a fig
ure, and is now well known. Beside, the
United States will require fully 1,(100,000
bales for home consumption, and probably
more. Looking fairly at the prospEc',
then, it becomes evident that there w;Il
le a demand for at leart 3,000,000 of fcalej
aud a supply of only 2:100,000, showm" a
deficit of 000,000. Under these clrc-a-stances
the planters are not to be cens ireJ
for refilling to sell at under twenty-Uve
cents per pound. The advice given ti
them to hold their crops at thirty rests tj
unwise, hut they can and ought to gci
what they now demand.
Of sea island cotton but little has been

But while the sea island crop ij a Iz
mentable failure, it is nevertheless trro
that the other descriptions of cotton arc
of an unusually fair description this year.
Tho long fine staple, which will tl .liy
bring thirty-five cents per pound, hai hen
more extensively grown than for eeveral
years past and will have the effect oC
greatly increasing the money value of tbe
crop. Had a little pains been taken by
tho planters in properly cultivating the
soil, tbe quality wopld not only have been
much hitter than the beat average year,
but the yield would have been considerably
augmented, in spite of caterpillars, boij
worms and the numerous other evils wh.cn
have attended the growth of the c Jtla.-i.
