Ability and worth are qualities es sential to tbe position, and they are com bined in Mr. Orton." A careful estimate of the comparative value of oil this and last year, allowing for the difference in currency, shows an in crease in price this year of from three to five cents. The trade is daily acquiring more strength and ability, and the extra ordinary fluctuations of previous years will hereafter be as unlikely as undesirable. Guerrillas are becoming troublesome in South Carolina. A party of them recent ly committed depredations within six miles of Charleston. ' ... "I . By a law of the last Congress, a copy of every book,, map, musical composition, engraving, photograph, $tc, .which has been copy-righted must be sent, free of expense, to the Library of Congress at Washington. On Tuesday last, General Morris was ordered by the Secretary of War to release forthwith all political prisoners held in Fort McHeory, as also all prisoners 'of war, and those called, guerrillas. Many of those released were under sentence of imprisonment during the continuance of the war. The Missouri radicals are changing their minds and are going in for the adop tion of the new constitution. Senator Grata Brown and Representative Ben Loap, annouo("themse!ves in favor of it.

Gov. Pierpont left Washington on last Wednesday, to proceed to Richmond, to establish the State-Government. One by one the Southern States will be brought under civil authority. Gov. Magrath, of South Carolina, is rep resented as being still in a rebellious mood. He has ordered out the State militia, of which Wade Hampton is to take command. Gov. Magrath needs a little experience in the old capitol prison, and we presume he will not have to wait long for it. Gen. Magruder, in Texas, at last reports, was in a very warlike way. He was still defiant. He promised bis soldiers that be would never submit to "Yaukecdom." But his tune will change. E.e ljng he will bear from Sheridan. The rebel General Forrest has issued a farewell order to his troops, requesting tbem to return to their homes and become peaceful citizens unler lha "powers that be." The Campaign in Greene County. In the election this Fall, we believe Greene County has one Commissioner, a Treasurer, a Recorder, and a Representa tive to elect. . Tbe nominations, we sup pose, will be by primary election, which the Central Committee will probably order to take place about the first of Aug ust Of course we will have nothing bnt harmony, and good-feeling, among the members of the Union party during the campaign. The divisions and animosities of two years ago will not occur again. There is a disposition among the leading men of the County to let all by-gones be by-gones. Harmony an! good-will for the future I Let this be our motto I Some time during the summer a con vention will be held, probably at James town, to nominate a candidate for State Senator. Our Soldiers Coming Home. Now that the great reviews at Wash ington are over, we suppose that our sol diers will be mustered out of service- as speedily as possible, and we may expect that many of them will soon be in our midst again. Let them be received in a manner befitting the gloriotu deeds which they have wrought for the country. They will return to us, many of them at least, poor, and in want of employment. If we have any hands to hire, any situ ations to fill, any money to pay out for la bor; let us in all cases give the preference to discharged Union soldiers. Many of them left good situations to enter the field, to fight the battles of our country. They return to us out of employment, and they should receive every favor,in the way of employment,andotherwise,that we have it in our power to bestow. Tbey have a right to claim this much, not as a charity, but as a debt, an obligation, which, we owe them. If our farmers want laborers, let them hire, at good wages, the brave men who have lived the country in the field. If our Court-House officials want deputies or clerks, let them give the preference to returned soldiers. If our merchants want salesmen and clerks, let them give the preference to soldiers. If our editors want compositors, let them give the pref erence to returned soldiers. It is very nice, and very easy, to talk about our ob ligations to the soldiers. But talk does not effect the end in view. Talk is very cheap ; and, in this case, is almost equally worthless. We want something practical. Let every man feel,in his very heart, that he ovx something to the Nation's defen ders ; and let him resolve, so far as it is in his power, to discharge his debt in most ample and complete manner. Not theory but practice : not words but acts. For Governor. We presume Gov. Brough will be re nominated at Columbus, on June 21st; and, if so, we shall with great pleasure put his name at the head of our columns, and bear it through the campaign, in the full belief that he will be triumphantly re-elected, and that he will be a good Gov ernor in peace as he has been in war. Af ter Gov. Morton, he has probably been the best Governor in the United States during the war. To his unwearied efforts Ohio is much 'indebted for the proud and glorious record she has made in the great struggle just past. He has served us well, served us nobly,and we owe it to him,and to ourselves, to renominate and rs-elect him. Brough and Victory 1 Trial of Jeff. Davis. Mr. "Jeff. Davis, the chief of the great rebellion, is in the hands of our authori ties. We suppose he will soon be brought to trial, and, after conviction, to punish ment. But as the end to be attained is to vindicate justice, and show to the peo ple of the United States the enorminity of the crime of treason, and the sure pen alty that follows it, we hope this trial will be in a civil Court, where the full dignity and majesty of the late can be asserted. Let Jeff. Davis be arraigned for treason; and,- if he is to be punished at all, let him be punished for treason. Then justice ill be satisfied, and the people will have set before tbem an example for the maj esty of the law which will be beneficial to our country duriDg all it fur-ture. The Grand Review. The grand review of the Armies com menced iu Washington on last Tuesday. On that day the scene was brilliaut iu the extreme. Tbe Potomac Army, number ing seventy-five thousand men, led by Gen. Meade, passed in review before the White House, and down Pennsylvania Avenue. On Wednesday, Gen. Sherman's Army, numbering over one hundred thousand men, passed over the same route. President Johnson, with his Cabinet, Gen. Grant, and many other distinguished of ficers, occupied an elevated platform at a favorable poiut for observation. If we believe the accounts given by the corres pondents, tbe scene was a grand one in deed. Such an exhibition will probably never sgain bo seen on this Continent. It was a perfect ova tion to our returning lie roes, such aj tbe Old Romans gave -their victorious legions as tbey marched home from glorious conquest. Gen. Custar Las been assigned to the command of t'.ie Department of Arkausas and Missouri. Chief Justice Chase and the Colored People. A colored gentleman of Xenia declared in our office the other day, with great en thusiasm,. that "Chief Justice Chase is the best man in the Nation I " The particu lar subject of conversation, just then, was the speech made by Judge Chase, recent ly, in Charleston, South Carolina, in which the doctrine of negro suffrage was ably advocatea. But our colored friends need not suppose that Judge Chase is the only man in the Nation who is willing for ne groes to vote. Gen. Butler, though a warm pro-slavery man before the war, has, since the breaking out of the rebel lion, been the firm friend of the colored race, and the uncompromising advocate of negro suffrage. Similar sentiments are entertained by great numbers of the prom inent public men of the day. There seems to be some doubt in the public mind as to the views of President John son on this subject, but we trust he will be found ready, at tbe proper time, to take a position consistent with the enlightened views of the day. It is pretty well understood, that rebels who have been for four years fighting to destroy the Government, are soon to be entrusted with all the 'rights and privi ledges of citizenship. This may be well enough ; but it would; be most cruel, most unjust, most impolitic, to deny the rights of citizenship to those colored men in the South who through the long yeais of this struggle have stood up manfully for the flag of our country. Many of theso have been regularly enlisted in our army, and have bravely participated in some of the most Lard-fought battles of tbe war. Shall such men be denied the right of vo ting ? Now that the war is over, shall we basely endeavor to sink the negro to an inferior position 7 Shall, we deny bim the rights of manhood in free America ? Shall we make an invidious distinction, before the law, between whites and .blacks? Shall we establish a system of slavery, whereby one race shall rule, and the other submit? The answer of good men every where is emphatically, No I Europe and America. The news from Europe, for a few weeks past, has been amusing as well as gratify iog. The assassination of President Lin coln has been U3ed as the theme for cal ling out expressions friendly to tbe United States. As soon as the news of tbe dire event reached London, the British Parlia ment was assembled, and an address of sympathy was sent to Minister Adams. And it is somewhat remarkable, that this address contained also marks of great re spect toward the United States, and a de sire that this country may be prosperous in the future. The Times, the great British political thunderer, which has used its mighty presses to disseminate doctrines favorable to the South even the Time came out with flattering words fur the United States, as well as with strong terms denouncing the assassination. Queen Vic toria indited a few sympathetic lines to Mrs. Lincoln ; but underneath all the con ventional phrases, was an expression of rood-will for the United States. The Ministers of her Majesty, were all profuse in their declarations tendering their "high est consideration and most profound es teem," for everything American. Napo leon was also moved to flattering expres sion. Aitogetner, Europe presented a most striking manifestation. After four years of cold neutrality, if not open hostil ity on her part toward us ; after her dec larations, made a thousand times, that she wished the South success in her efforts to establish a Confederacy ; after her often- expressed and well-known hatred for this country; after all these manifestations, it is somewhat remarkable and amusing, to say the least, to see the snobs and the aris tocrat's getting down on tbeir knees to ten der to us their ''highest consideration." In all these expressions of horror at the brutal murder of our - President, there evidently were a few grains of sincerity, of truth ; but that' the Parliament, and Earl Russel, and the Times, and Napoleon meant all they said in. their terms adulato ry of the United States, we do not for a moment believe. We are inclined to be lieve that those crowned heads, and their spokesmen, said what they did more for policy, more for. tle,ir own welfare, than for anything else. .If Jeff.-Davis bad been successful,-if tbe Confederacy had been permanently established as a first-class power, the assassination of President Lin coln would not have called out among the crowned heads of Europe anything more than a passing notice ; while if Jeff. Da vis bad been assassinated, all Europe would have shrieked, and Queen Victoria and the Emperor Napoleon would have sent letters of sweet condolcment to Mrs. Davis. In such a case as this, Messrs. Mason aod Slilell wonld have been over whelmed with addresses of sympathy, aod esteem, and flattery, and Messig. Adams and Bigclow, would have been "left out in tho cold." - Europe produces some good men, though tbey may cot be so numerous as we would have them. Lord Chatham was so great and so good that he coulfl be a friend of Cue ri-bt ; and in this, our last struggle, John Bright Las not hesitated to be our powerful friend. And so we might oite other instances of good men Europe has produced. But the nations of Europe With tbeir rulers, and aristocrats, have ever been, and are now, what we iu Amer ica would term essentially and emphatical a j ly mean. European nations, from fear and jealousy, have always hated the Uni ted States. When this great rebellion commenced, France and England arrayed themselves on its side espoused its cause, justified its doings, and maintained its principles. Napoleon sent an army to Mexico to take advantage of us, and the subjects of Queen Victoria built vessels of war for the use of rebel pirates. The English and the French aristocrats joined hands in near fellowship, and together prayed and worked for the success of the great hideous American rebellion. .Ta king these facts in view, we come to the conclusion, that the expressions called out by the assassination of President Lincoln were not sincere, and were not dictated by friendship for this country. Other causes than feelings of good-will called out those expressions. France and England do not consider moral questions. In their character as Nations, they care not a fig for right They act from motives of policy, or what tbey conceive to be pol icy. And one thing tbey always desire to do one thing they are always anxious to accomplish that is, to get on the tide of th victorwnu party, utterly regvdless and oblivious of all questions of principle, of all matters of merely moral guilt. When the great American rebellion aroused tbe world, Europe thought itwould be success ful, aod without asking any questions as to the right or wrong of the movement, she unhesitatingly placed herself on its side; aod labored, so far as she dared, to bring about its triumph. But she was doomed to disappointment The rebellion suddenly collapsed ; and the great Amer ican Republic arose stronger and more glorious tban ever before. Then the crowned heads of England and France grew dizzy, and the faces of aristocrats paled with fear, and all made indecent haste to get on the side of the victorious party. The Republic was victorious over its desperate foes, and the assassination of its Cbief Magistrate gave Europeans a favor able opportunity for getting on the side of the victor ; and their declarations of sympathy, thongh insincere, will tend to smooth down the asperities of feeling that have been engendered in the American mind during the war. Jeff Davis. We have this week further particulars of the capture of Jeff. Davis. Gen. Wil son had command of all the forces which operated to make the arrest. On the 10th inst. at daylight, a party of our forces came up with the rebel camp at Irwins- ville, Georgia. A movement was made immediately to surprise the rebel party, which was perfectly successful. Some of our soldiers went to the tent in which were the rebel President and his family. They were met at the door by Mrs. Davis, who said : "Please gentlemen, don't dis turb tbe privacy of ladies, before they have time to dress." "All right, Madame," said the corporal, -'we'll wait till you have on your duds." Presently there appeared at the tent door an ostensible old lady with a bucket on her arm, escorted by Mrs. Davis and her sister. "Please let myr old mother go to the spring for some water to wash in," said Mrs. Davis in a pleading tone. "It strikes me your mother wears very big boots," said the guard as he hoist ed the old lady's dress with his sabre and discovered a pair of number 13 calfskins, "and whiskers too," said the sergeant as he pulled the hood from her face, and lo ! Jeff. Davis in ail his littleness stood before them. A Spencer rifle was immediately pointed at his ears and he was marched back to his tent and placed in durance vile. According to the reports of the corres pondents, the rebel officials captured were all very sober and sullen. Davis remark- ed to Col. Pritchard, the officer in com mand of our forces, that, if they had not been surprised, they would not have sur rendered without a fight. After the cap ture our forces started towards Macon, Whjle on the road, a copy of President Johnson's proclamation, offering 8100,000 for the rebel President was received. Da vis read it, trembled, his hand dropped to his side, and, with a groan, . he dropped the paper. His wife picked it up, read it aloud, and the entire party burst into tears. Tbe cavalcade arrived at Macon on the 13tb, and soon after took a special train for Atlanta, and thence to Augusta. Stephens and Wheeler were captured by detachments of Gen. Upton's division, aod Clay and lady surrendered to Gen. Wilson, at Macon. General Banks. Gen. Banks has been removed from command at New Orleans. It seems to be settled at last that he is a military fail ure. The Red River expedition, of which he had command, was one of the great est disasters of the war. Tbe report of the Committee on the Conduct of the War, says of this expedition: "Itdid not seek to accomplish any definitely avowed military object, and as a military move ment it seems to have been conducted without capacity or discretion." This re port further says : " The political trans actions were shown by the holding of elections in tbe camps of the army while engaged in the expedition, with a view of recognizing tbe civil Government in Lou isiana. The attempt to do this was clearly usurpation on tho part of the military authorities, the execution of which was as wenk and inefficient as the attempt was improper and illegal." at Before the war, Geo. Banks was a pub lic man of excellent reputation. But it sems that he bas been exeeedingly unfor tunate as a General. Besides he is charg ed with trading in cotton contrary to law, and with other and various operations affecting his honesty as a . man, aod his patriotism as a citizen. . The Assassination Trial. The trial of the assassination conspir ators at Washington is still in progress, Some important evidence w-s brought out on Monday. It appears that a Lieuten -ant in the rebel army wrote a letter to President Davis, in which he proposed, with the assistance of the rebel Govern ment, " to rid his country of some of her deadliest enemies by striking at the very heart's blood of those who sought to en chain her." This individual evidently had reference to assassination; and Presi dent. Davis, instead of disapproving of the project, referred the letter to the Sec retary of War. This5 ehows that Davis had no objection to assassination ; in fact, that he rather liked, the idea. We are not informed a3 to whether evidence suf ficient has been adduced to make it cer tain that he was an accomplice of Booth ; but be this as it may, all honest men will believe that he was capable of participa ting fn just such a low grade of crime, for it is now a fact beyond dispute that he au-. thorized the attempts made to burn Nor thern cities last summer; and, more, that he authorized tbe raids from Canada, and the schemes to burn aod sink our vessels on various waters. The individual who could countenance and support all these infernal plans, could easily be an accom plice in assassination. . ZCsTZEW BOOKS That Aro New. ST. PHILIPS, By the author of Ratledge.
