At last accounts the Baron had tin successfully intervened to save the life of Maximilian, and had incurred the hos tility of the Mexican leaders. No dis patches from him have been received for a long time, and nothing is known as to his condition. The government has taken measures to ascertain definitely whether the Juarez authorities have treated its Minister in a manner contrary to the law of nations. General James B. Stesdman, Collector of Internal Revenue for the first New Or leans District, haB reported to the Treasury Department, that immense frauds have been discovered in that office, paid frauds having been perpetrated during the ad ministration of General W. P. Benton, now deceased. General Benton was for merly a resident of Indiana. He was the first Colonel of the Eighth Indiana Volun teer?, and made a creditable record during the war, but after hia return home became dissipated ; waa appointed Collector of the first NeW Orleans District by Mr. Johnson. It is raid that he did not give his personal attention to the duties of his office, but that he left it entiroly to his subordinates. The amount of the frauds is not stated. A letter from Fort Gibson tells of the ravages of the cholera there a follows: "In one instance an entire family of ten persons died within the short space of forty-oight hours from the time the first one Was taken sick. TbeseCreeks have be come greatly demoralized through fear, and the moment any member of a house hold is attacked by cholera, the kinsfolk ueek their own safety by precipitate flight, and leave the sick one to meet the uncer tain issue single-handed and as befit he may. Thus, in several instances where death has intervened, the body has re- , nuinwl wifliMit burial for manv davfi. and on one occasion the bodies of two children who had died after desertion, wore eaten up or torn into pieces by partially wild hogs, which are abundant in all this region ef country." the BAJmnwr uw. Just after the passago of the bankrupt aot it seemed to bo the general impression that great numbers of our citizens would take advantoge of ite provisions. We heard a prominent lawyer of Rutherford Bay, he thought at least five hundred would file their applications in his coun ty. The numbor in this county was variously estimated at from five to fifteen hundred. It id now believed that, com paratively, vory few of tho people in this State will make application. Tho faot is, many who would doubtless npply un der the act, will be deterred from so do ing on account of the cashoutlay re quired on tho Sling or the petition for the seourily of costs. The petitioner must deposite fifty dollars with tho Registor, and oxooute in addition thereto a bond for one hundred dollars, to seoure the costs of his suitv insignificant as these suni9 may appear, they nevertheless pre sent an absoluto barrier to thousands whose only available means have been swept from thorn by the ravogea of wnr. Aside from this, the greater portion of our. people who would now be applicants, made trust assignments ( their property to seoure their dobtors, long before" the pasaageof the bankrupt act. MosVof the ' labor of the attorneys throughout tho .towns and poorer sections, of the State, in the two yoars succeeding the close of the war, was devoted to the drawing up of such instruments. Thore wore proba bly more deeds of trust made in thii State, in" the years 1SC5 and 18W, than in its whole past history. Thoro is n part of this law, a lear un derstanding of which is ncedni by many of our people, now laboring under a mis apprehension of ite provisions and which misapprehension is the cauet of a goo3 'deal of unoasiness. Wo refer to tho featuro known as "involuntary bank ruptcy." Many of our cltlsons think a debtor, owing a certain amount of delbi, is absolutely at themoroy ef nny creditor who may desire to force Mm into bank ruptcy. This is by no means the case. For tbe information, and to allay the fears of this class, we state broadly that, no Tlobtor can be forced into -bankruptcy, oxcopt for like causes as now justify an original attachment at law or in' Chan cery.

Thoy arc willing enough to con fer upon the negro the right of suffrage but they are unwilling that that right should bo exereisad so as to interfere vrtth their monopoly of the emoluments of oftee. The colored man, however, we see, begins to appreciate the mnnifesta turn Of selfishness on the part, of the "mean whites," and we are not surprised, therefore, that they should ba taking the proper, ineasur to counteract it. The colored gontlfiuian, Mr. J. J. Wright, who got up in the igftuth Carolina Radical Conventkgthef1, lav an insisted upon namingl&ne of his race as a proper candidatrfbr'theiVice Presidency of the United States, liau au intelligent percep tion of tho, necessities of the situation. f v ,4 . , a. Add that Inhor, colored gentleman who is running julIJSlinettodom as a candidate for Congress, must be animated by the true spirit of progress, and a commend' able solicitude for tho true interests of his race. And the same may be said of the equally enterprising Africans who are getting themselros placed on the police, and in other civil ofHcos, at Richmond, Savannah, New Orleans, etc. To weaken the moral effect of these tendencies, we soe, the Radical wire-pullers, are causing to be published letters purporting to be from colorod men liere and there, dis avowing nny desire to hold office, and! calline upon thoir colored brethren to Stfstafn iroin givipgtdlirambiiiiQn fthfit The Express is right The nation has had n complication of disorders for some vears. The disease has now assumed the form of the black plague or the Tennessee grip, and is approaching its critical stage. Tho patient is not "do ing ns well nB he might," but nevertheless has an immense vitality, and, will, when the foul humors aro pureed away, rise like "a giiint refreshed with-new Wine." A CONFLICT THAT MAY RE IKItE- PKESSI11I.E. The Rational Intelligencer learns from various portions of the Southern States that many intelligent, influential and substan tial old citizens decline all participation in the work of organization and reconstruc tion as protected by lx)ncresa. to- im most part they remain passive, having spontaneously adopted the policy recom mended by A. H. Stephens. They will either vote against a convention, or not vote at all, even shAilil they consent to the registration of their names. They do not consider that they have anything to do with the future government of their respective States, as that has passed from the hands of the people of those States to Congress. They have the privi lege oi remaining on me son, suojeci 10 the future division of the same between them and the freedmen. But their State governments have been destroyed by Con gress, and no modification of this form can be tolerated by Radicals, no matter how absurd and unjust it may be. When the State governments pass from the hands of the military thev will devolve upon Ike fnedmen and their few whiie Jtadical alliet, uho will, f course, enqross for them- selves all Federal and Staie authority, and consult only their own interests as a clan and as a party. Even remonstrances from respect able citizens against theoppressions of this sort of government would be unheed ed by Congress, and perhaps provote puni tive legislation. It is not at all strange that a very Jarce portion of the most use ful and intelligent citizens of the South should act on Mr. A. II. Stephens' theory, that they cannot improve tneir situation and prospects either by resisting or by promoting the Congress plan of recon struction. That the government of the ten States now being mangled in tho "reconstruc tion"mill, will emerge in the hands of the blacks and "a few white Radical allies," there is little doubt, and in the light of the recont axporience in Tennessee, a State now in tho third year of that spe cies of tribulation, tho whito people will aot wisely if they pursue the policy of non-participation. They may and should indicate acquioscence, for any other course would be as futile, as it certainly would be hurtful. But with the prospect of being condemned to indefinite disfran-. chiaemont and political vassalago to their farmer slaves arid tho white adventurers who .manipulate their votes, there is nei ther sense nor need of their becoming partios to thoir own degradation, and giving sanction and legitimacy to the unhallowed work. Let them pass through thetvalley of tho shadow of "reconstruc tion," passive and non-resistant In Tennesseo, on the 1st of August, the few white men loft enfranchised, with the concurrence of tho vast majority of the disfranchised, gave the Radical system of reconstructing States, a full and fair test. They proposed to ratify and guarantee to the colored race tho full measure of civil freedom conferred on them in the Federal statutos.nnd all tho political rights granted by the Legislature of Tennessee. Thoy asked in return that the blacks should vote the enfranchisement of the whitos. This proposition was refused. It was dono after all the deliberation that tho race is capable of giving so simple, fair, and just a proposition. Ihe issue was patiently, laboriously, and sincerely argued to thorn. Remonstrance and so licitation woro rosortod to. All were in vain. Tho nogroes, knowing that they held the decision in their hands, declared against tho oqual rights of the white man. In extenuation, it cannot be pleaded that they aeted in unadvised ignorance. If the reaent canvass made by the Con servative party had not occurred, there might ba justifieation for oxcusi.g tho negro lor the responsibility for this mon strous outrage. But as tho case stands, he mt assume it, and all tho conso quenMS of the issue that ha haa permit ted tbr white Hadieals to lead him to. Tho negro in Tennessee has rejected the frank, manly and magnanimous proffer of universal suffrage, and narrowed the question of the political mastery of this State and tho whole of the former slave soctien of tho country, to one of brains and xausele, moral power and physical onduraneo between himself and the whito man.

The Northern people don't want it, and the leaders know it But they should be forced to. have it, and the only pity is that the colored people are not among them in numbers sufficient to control their politics. If thare is such heaving and gagging over a few negroes, what would that people do if two-thirds of the whites were disfranchised and the negroes were In heavy majorities in each State. Roll on the ball, Fred. Douglass, Jno. M. Langston and othera The physic is drastic and powerful, but the patienf needs it THE DISTRICT ATTORNEYSHIP. This important office for the Middle District of this State has been vacant since the resignation of Judge Harrison last snrinit. It will bo recollected that tho President appointed E. H. East, Esq., to tho position, and the appointment was a " duly confirmed by the Senato. The ap pointee promptly declined, however, and thereupon the President sent in the name of Maj. L D. Walker of this city, an ex officer of the Federal army and a gen tleman pronounced by the bar of this city to be every way competent. For political reasons, Maj. Walker being a Conservative, objection was jnade by Senator Fowler, as we are informed, and under a rule of tho Senate in Executive session, the case went over to the next session of Congress. Thus the petty partisan spite of the Radical Senator pf Tennessee, who is supposed to be as liberal and large heart ed as ho is intellectually great, has de prived this people of an .officer whoso publiciservices aro in constant requisi tion. It is said that an ancient King employed a servant to notify him every morning that he was mortal. Mr. Fowler should hire one of the Senatorial pages . to tell him daily that he is a Senator. It is so incredible that he needs to be con stantly reminded in order to believe it himself. The charge of Judge Fisher to the jury in the Surratt case might have aervd as a brief for the prosecuting nltorneys, or as a summing up of the argument in that behalf. It reminds one of Scraggs and Jeffereys. TIIE ELECTION. Below we give the vote for Governor as far as received.

The Intelll gencer says the statement that the Brest dent has ordered no further communica tions, to be held with 3Ir. Stanton, is inac cufale. So long a3 he is permitted to f e main in office, official relations must exist, It does not follow, however; that he will attend Cabinet consultations. These are not held in virtue of law. but are purely discretionary with the President, who is neither obliged to confer with his Secreta ries in general meetings, nor is he restrict ed to the heads of departments in seeking advice upon public affairs. We learn from unadvisedly informed sources, that it w the purpose ot Mr. Johnson to let the whole matter rest in abeyance for a few days, giving time for reflection on the part of 1 a.:.i 1 1 . kjmuiun aim luniiw, Wliu auvise IllUi as IO the course he should pursue.

There is no indications of the Surratt jury coming down from their room into court, or of having agreed upon a verdict.
