Tho following extract from his in augural message will define his position: "Let us renew our faith to the Southern cause, and let us swear before high heaven, whatever else may be our fate we will never have political connection with such a God cursed race. Death will bo a heavenly boon compared with, the miseries of Yankee rule." He wns a member of the seeession conven tion, nnd in company with Mr. L.

Ho ordered the firing of the first gun on Fort Sumter, and on the sumo evening declared he would plant the rebel ting on Funiicil Hull in lloston. licnj. Fitzputrick, pardoned, and a prom inent candidate for the U.S. Semite, was a lawyer. He abandoned his scat in the Senate, together with C. C. Clay, (who is now ehaged with conspiracy) and indorsed the sentiments expressed in tlint memorable .farewell speech o( Clay's, in which he declared himself to be absolved (rom all obligations to support (lie Constitution of the I nited .States. Iwtziiatnek was also one of th.it caucus i'l which southern Senators agreed to, nnd did advise their States to secede. J. L. l'uah, recommended for pardon, and a candidate lor Congress, is a lawyer of con siderable noie. He also abandoned his seat in Congress, and udvised the Convention in Alabama to puss tno ordinance oi se.:ession.

Ho was, of course, one of the most violent seces sionists. Kdward S. Pargan, recommended for par don, is a prominent lawyer and secessionist. He wns formerly a member of the United States Congress, nnd Judge of the Supreme Court of Alabama; was a member of the se cession convention and rebel Congress. He was author of the proposition to rniso n mil lion dollars for tho war. Thaddeus Sanford, recommendtd for par don, was Collector of the Port of Mobile under Buchanan, and editor ot the Advertiser.

Gen. Cornelius Robinson, recommended tor nnrdon. was a Deputy to the rebel Congress made violent speeches in favor of secession, declaring that if Alabama did not secede bis county would, nnd if that did not, he would with his plantation. He favored vigilance committees nnd lynch lawB; declared his de sire for tho election, because, as he believed, that mould brin'i about disunion. Eli S. Shorter, pardoned, was one of the most extreme rebels in the t.outn, anu notcu fnr bis persecution of loyal men. Ho is an cx-mcmber both of tho United States nnd Coufederntc Congress was also a Colonel m the rebel army. .' . ! '. James M. Calhoun, nephew of tho jSullifier, is recommended for pardon. He is n .wealthy planter, lawyer and politician ; has been plot ting secession for nearly thirty years; was a Senator In tho rebel Stnte Legislature, and a bitter persecutor of Union men.

S. property, was a General in the rebel army, conscript agent of the State, ko. ' - ' H. W. Hilliard, recommended for pardon, was a strong advocate of secession, a famous ecclesiastical oraor on the "rights of the South," commander of tho furaous Hilliard Legion, a la Caesar, and is now spending the days of his penitence in Washington, under the eye of his hoped-for restorer. T. B. Betlleit, pardoned, was an extreme secessionist, (Yancey school,) a member of the Montgomery Confederate League, &c. W. H. Fowler, pardoned, Was 'Secretary of the Alabama Secession Convention and after ward assumed command of n company called warrior unaras, witn wlneu to take posses sion of Fort Morgan before the Slate had se ceded. He is no in Washington acting as Pardon Agent1 ' On tho 4th of this month ho telegraphed from there to a certain gentle man in this city : "I paid nothing." lie teas made a special agent by Gov. 1'arsons to ad- minister the amnesty oatn, Washington M. Smith, pardoned, was Pres ident of the Selma Bank. At a time when it was thought guns would be scarce in the Con federacy, this gentleman distinguished him self by saying, "If wo eannot get guns, wo will tnko pikes; and if wo cannot get pikes, we will take shovels and hoes; and if we can not get tJ'em, i" W1'l use bnckbnts; and if we cannot set uricklvts, we wilt scratch lhe Ynn-1 kees' eyes out with our Ssgpc nails," Col. N. H. R. Dawson, pnrilpned, was tho first man who wore the South Carolina cock ade in this State; raised company of minule men; became officer in the rebel conscript bu reau; said the rich men would procure tho means, and thn poor men would do the hght iug; wns in f.-.vor of raising the black Hug, lie. Lehman & Bro's, rich Jews, and merchants in this city, were pardoned. They were block ade runners, nnd were spoken of by Governor V"iu' '" '''s message, as "having furnished, during i' ent'r0 wari valuable material for tho")jjllrneti Tyjvac' Micon, A. Kirk, nnd others comprising'the rnt of Burnett, Micon k Co., Montgomery, ore now, an-'1 wero before tho war, the owners and proprieU"' ' n0 Tallnsa Cotton Factory, located in Taii'o'." county, this state. This Company made us immense fortune during the war, having been favored contractors of the so called Confed erate Government. The Company was, nnd is now, composed of peisons most hostile to the Uuiled States. They were noted during tho war for their vigilance in punishing and persecuting union citizens. They even refused to lumish poor women nnd children of the State with a yard of cloth for any price, giving as a reason that thy "aloiip manufactured cloth for the soldiers of the Confederate army." At the close of the rebellion they were in possession of a largo amount of cotton, not less than 2,500 bales, with other property. Much of this colton bo longed to the Confederate Government, it hav ing been sent to this factory to be manufac tured into clothing for the army. This company coining within several sec tions of the President's amnesty proclamation, anil their factory being liable to confiscation under the acts of Congress, they cngnged the services of a prominent lawyer, named Sci bles (now dead,) und contracted with him to obtain pardon for the various members, he (Reibles) to receive forbis liorviecs one-third of the cotton. The petitions were prepared, recommended and forwarded to Washington, and in due time the pardons were granted. The company finding themselves pardoned, compromised with their attorney by paying him $00,000 This nffiiir being concluded, the next step was to present to the Secretary of the Treas ury a large claim for compensation, which is nt this time under consideration at Washing tun. The company above spoken of is the one which proposed lo scud JelF. Davis one hun dred nnd fifty negroes after the Confederate Congress hail passed an act to use slaves for military purposes; and when Davis had to dee from Hiehniond, this company offered and used their factory mid buildings as a deposit ory (or the property of the Richmond Govern ment. All rcconnncndi d for pardon by Gov. Pur sons! And 1 might extend the list to hundreds, ut it is needless to do so. Tho most violent secessionists, the most incorrigible rebels, the most relenlless pcrscculers of Union men of this State are already pardoned, and there is no reason to doubt that tho cart load ot peti tions gone up from this State, and yet to be considered by the i'resiuont, win oo grnmcri. About the middle of the last month it. be came cenerally known in this city that pard ons wero being bought, or rather that recom mendations were being secured by payment of certain sums to Mr. Garret, Gov. Parson's Secretary of State. James Q. Smith, U. S. District Attorney, having become assured that this wns the fact, went to the G jvnrnnr and showed him the evidence of it, nnd informed him that steps had better be taken to check such abuse. The Governor was astounded, nnd the result wns the rcsigmticn of Secreta ry Gar.ctt A committee wns appointed who investigated the matter, nnd reported tlint the Secretary only took pay for extra labor, which ho hud to perform in examining so many ap plications, the Governor having given it into liis hands to mnke out a brief of each case and u statement of the merits, in order to snvo time. Governor Parsons immediately telegraphed tho President to grant nopnrdons for this State until further orders, nnd you know what a flutter ws produced by it But a shower of dispatches cuinc down from Wash ington, and cooled the Governor's righteous indignn'ion t such an extent that the restric tion was soon removed, nnd tho pardon wheel is again running, though, perhaps, not as well "greased" as it was somo months ago. a -4. a sa Tho Xtidoiuil Finances! Policy of (secretary itics. uiiocu. ' . ,;, : CniCAfio, Oct 12. I am not one of those who seem to repudi ate coin as a measure of value, and to make a secured paper currency tho standnrd. On the contrary, I belong to that class of persons who, regarding an exclusive metallic currency as an impracticable thing among enterprising and commercial people, nevertheless look upon an irredeemable currency as an evil, which circumstances may for a time rauder a necessity, but which is never to be sustained as a policy. By the common consent of the nations, gold and silver are the ouly true measures ot value. 1 uey ore uie nccessury regulators of trade. I haTe myself no more doubt that these metals were prepared by the Almighty for this very purpose than I have that iron and coal were prepared for the pur poses in which they arc being used. I favor a well secured convertible paper curreucy. No other can to any extent bo a proper sub stitute for coin. Of course it js not expected that there shall bo a dollar in'coiu in reserve for every dollar of paper in circulation. This is not necessary. For all ordinary home transaction a paper currency is sufficient, but there nro constantly occurring periods when the balances between countries, and in the United States between its different sections must be settled in coin. These balances are insignificant in amount in comparison with tho transactions out of which they arj(i and iwlien a vicious svstoiri' of credit does not too long postpone settlements, they are arranged without disturbing the niovemonU of coin. IVhonover specie is needed fbthis rmrnos'o. or for any other purpose, the paper' currency of. the conntry should be convertible into it, nud a circulation not so convertible will 'not be, and ought ilot. to bo long tolerated by the people. The present inconvertible currency of the United States Was a necessity of tho war, but now that the war has censed, and the Government ought not to be longer a bor rower, this currency should be brought tip to the specie standard; and 1 see no way of doing this but by withdrawipo) a portion of It' from circulation, t hniOjfie' faith hi a prosperity which is he-ffaH j dop""l onrrbney, nor can 1 see any snfi path for us to trend but that which leads to specie payment The extreme high prices which now prevail in the United States arc an unerring indicn tion that the business of the country is in an unhealthy condition. We nro measuring val ues by a false standnrd. We have a cirjuln ting medium altogether larger Ihnn is needed for legitimate business. The excess in used a speculations. : lhe United States nro to day t!iC best n nrket in the world for foreign ers lo sell iii, !nd among the poorest to buy in. Tho consenuence i that Europe is sell- ing us more tnnn sue ouys oi us, inciuuing our securities, which ought not to go nbro:id ; and there is n debt rolling up against us that must bo settled in port, at least, with coin. The longer the inflation continues, the more difficult will it be for us to get back to the solid ground of specie payment, to which we must return sooner or Inter., " It Congress shall early in the approaching session authorize the funding of the legal ten ders, and the work of a reduction is com menced and carried pn resolutely, but care fully and prudently, we shall reach it proba- 'uv c'thout serious cnibarrnssmrot to Injiti nmte L'.'suss. If not, we shall have ft brief period of iijllo !nd seiluctivc prosperity, re sulting iii wide V.'''l bankruptcy and disaster. There nro other ,ibtions to the present inllatation. It is, I fear, "orrtipting the. .pub lic morals; it is converting business ot the country into gambling, nnd sir'""")v mmishing the labor ot the country.,, Jk.s t. always the oiled of excessive circulation.---The "kind of gambling which it produces is not confined to the stock and produce boards, wfhel'e the very terms which nro used by the operators indicate the nature ot the transac tions, but it is spreading through our towns, und inti the rural districts. Men lire an parently getting rich, while morality languish es, and the productive industry of the country i being diminished. Good morals in busi ness, and sale, persevering industry, if not.nt a discount, lire considered too old liigyish for the present times. But I feel that this is not the occasion for croaking, and perhaps I ought to apologize for the train of remarks into which I have been led, but I feehiiixious about thttjircsent inflntjpu and its effects upon the business hii3"""Biora1s of "the country. I urn hopeful that by wise legislation, we shall escape u financial collapse, and I am confi dent that a grand futuro is before the United States. 1 mil hopeful that the currency may ho brought up to the specie standard, without j those financial troubles which have, in all countries followed protracted and expensive wars. . By tho experience of ibo Inst four years we are led to the conclusion that our people have a latent power that always manifests itself when required, and is equal to nny emergency. I have fuith in that as we have, to tho aston ishment of the world, raised immense armies, larger 1 apprehend than any single nation ever brouglit into the field, nnd met the enor mous expenses of the war without borrowing from other nations, wo shall also be nble, without ft financial crisis, to fund our surplus currency, and interest bearing notes ; bring buck business to a specie standard, and place the credit of the country on the most satisfac tory basis. If wo do this, wn shall accom plish what the soundest thinkers in Europe have considered nn impossibility, nnd what no other people but the free and enterprising people of the United States, occupying the grandest country in the world, could accom plish. But should wo be disappointed in these hopeful expectations ; should no enrly check be put upon the issues of paper money ; Rhould prices still further iidvuucc, and speculation bo still further stimulated, and tno result thereof bo extensive bankruptcy, depression and hard times; the grand destiny of this country and this government will not bo af fected. The United States occupy tho best portion of the temperate zone of a continent, stretch ing out its arms to 1-uropo on tne one snle and Asia on the other, and producing nil ar ticles necessary for the subsistence and com fort of the ra'ce. If cotton be king, ho is, thank God, enthroned again. If bread bo king, where should his capital be but in this freitt valley ot the Mississippi; mis nniion as within itself everything that is needed to make it the greatest among the family of na tions. Coal and iron are in juxtaposition nn.i in incxhuustiblo --supply; mountains nnd val leys rich enough in gold nnd silver to furnish the world for nil time with what nwv bo need ed for circulation ond other uses; copper and lead, and other minerals in no less abundance; a soil of wonderful fertility; a climate salu brious nnd diversified, nnd, above all, repub lican institutions, and nn energetic nnd culti vate I people. Wo hnve, it is trne, difficult questions growing out of the war yet to be settled, but i have an abiding confidence that they will bo settled as they comonp for settle ment, in such n manner nswill strengthen the Union nnd add to our national renown. The labor question nt the South is onc of tnoso questions, uiu u mure e no uumiue in terference it will not, I apprehend, be a very difficult one. On the contrary it is quite like?, ly to be n self-iuljnsting one. Tho plnr.ter needs the labor of his former slaves, nod the hie-li price which Southern products will com mand for years to come will enable him to pay liberally for it The colored people will soon lenrn thot freedom from slavery docs not mean frcedo n iroui work. The interests of the two races will .not long be antagonistic The whites will need the labor of tho blacks, and lhe blacks will uecd employment There is as much danger to be apprehended from the unwillingness of the latter to lubor for a support, us from nn indisposition to pay fair waires. Like all other economical onestions, it will bo settled by the necessities and inter ests of the parties. . Fortunately for the solu tion of this question ond the well being of la boring men generally, capital is hot supreme in the United States. It does not as in most other countries, hold labor under its control, and dolo out to it just su.-.h remuneration only as will make it most productive. ' Labor is a power in this free country, with its &sp. funds, which are within the reach of all in duatrinus men. and dictates terms to capital There is no part of tha world where labor is more needed than in the southern stntes.i Xo where will it soon, command hnt.fpr nrinau This labor question at the South will, I doubt not; be satisfactorily arranged in due time for the best interests of all concerned. . - Union Members) of the Flfty-Mev-, entlt Ucncral AsNeinbly of Ohio A Two-Thirds Majority lu Both IIoaHCM. , CNIOX KRNATOKS Kt.KCT. 1st District Hamilton, S.

At last she arose' from her knees, put out her candle, and lay down in bed; but did not sleep. After a few minutes had elapsed, she was conscious the man was stnnding by her bed-side. Ho addressed her, and begged her not to be alarmed. "I came here,", said he. "to roh vou: but after the wnfilu lnr Ifflyieai-.J nTf .1 . tittered, no power on earth could induce me to hurt you, or to touch a thing in your housi?.

He then went to the window, opened it, and whistled softlv. Re turning to the lady's side, (who hud not spoke or moved,) he said : "Now I am going. Your prayer has been heard, and no disaster will befall you." He left the room, and soon all wns quiet, and the lady fell asleep, still upheld liv that rill in nnd Iipnntlfnl V,tl ...,,1 trust. When the morning dawned, she awoke, and wo may feel suro that she poured out her thanksgivings and praise to Him who had "defended her under "his wings," and "kept" her "safe under his feathers," so that she was not afraid of any terror at night The man proved true to his word, nnd not a thing in tho house had been taken. Oh ! shall wo not hopo that his heart was changed from that day forth, and that he forsook his evil courses, and cried to that Savior, "who came to seek and save that which was lost," nnd even on the cross did not reject the penitent thief! , From this true story let 113 learn to put our whole trust and confidence in God. This lady's courairo was indeed wonderful ; but "the Lord wns her defense upon her right hand," and with him all things urc possible. We have received 1111 extract from a lelter fully c inoborating tho rcmarknblo anecdote of the "Lady and the Robber," in our October number, nud adding some lacls that enhance J the mercy nnd wonder of her escape. We quote the words ot tho letter: "In tho lirst place, the robber told her, if she hud given tl,n cll.rlilnal- nlfii-m iv tiznrt nf vnwlwtiinfo tin was full y determined to murder her; so that it was really God's good guidance that told her to follow the course sho did. Then, bo fore he went away, ho said : "I never heard such words before ; must have the book you end out of, and carried oil her Bible, will ingly enough given, you may bo Euro. This happened many yours ago, mid only compar atively recently did the lady hear any more from him. She was attending a regular meeting in Yorkshire, where, after several noted clergymen and others had spoken, a man arose, saying that he was employed as 0:10 ot tho book-hawkers ot the society, anu told the story of the midnight adventure, ns the wonderful power of the Word of God.

WhntlSaMuIc? . This great question, which has probably been asked by every inquiring mind in coun tries inhabited by mules, is answered as fol lows by u correspondent of the Gormantown Telegraph; "After so much has been said about mules, it will be deemed folly, by some, to ask tho question, 'What is a mule? The answer will, in nine time out ot ten, be a 'a hybrid between tho horse and the ass.' Yet this is not exactly correct, for a hybrid betwefn tho horse nnd the ass will produce two destinct races of animals, as different from one ano ther as a horso is different froin a mule. One of these, tho offspring of the male horse or stallion and the female ass, is the hinny. This animal is characteristic of the horSCj whieli ho closely resembles in many respects;, but he also inherits the hardy constitution and activity of bis mother, the ass. Ono distin guishing feature of the hinny is that ho neighs like the horsej, and his cars arc .mailer and his feet larger than the mule proper. In every respect ho partakes more of the charac ter of the horse than tho ass. Tho eecond hybrid between the male nss or jack and the female horse or mure, is the mule. This hy brid takes after the sire, as in the case of the former hybrid. I have never had mv experi ence with tho hinny, but have heard it said they were preferable to tha mule for pleasure travelling but not for drought." ';; A Lawyer Outwitted.
