On Saturday last, a deputation of Vir ginians—"to thi manner bom," to a man we 6uppo.e, waited upon the Presi dent of the United States, Mr. Andrew Johnson, "tho .Hen," and petitioned him to alter the Amnesty Proclamation by striking out the 13th exception, (the $20,000 clause.) They represented that this clausj Interfered with Tbe develop ment of industry by binding up capital, nnd so oppressed the poor. How feeling, indeed. The deputation went on to as -urethe President tliat when they en deavored to borrow money in the North, era or Mi.idle States they were met at once with the objection tliat perhaps they had over $20,000, Rftft'Lf tliey had they could not lend it to them. So they were unable to assist to work the poor men that ef.lled upon them. Tho President reminded them (hat the Amnesty Proclamation did not cause this distrust. It was the commission of treason and the violation of law tliat did it. Tho Amnesty Proclamation left these men just where they were before. It did not add any disability to them; if they had committed treason they were amenable to the confiscation law which Congress had passed, and which he, as President, could not alter nor amend. In the Amnesty Proclamation he had offered pardon to some .persona, but that did not Injure any other persons. Would they like to have tlio Amnesty Procla mation removed altogether?' Would they feel any easier in that case? One of the deputation.—Xo. But it would us very much if you would extend the benefits of the Proclamation to persons worth over 820,000. The President replied that In making that exception he had acted on the nat tu-aljj-upposition that men had aided the rebellion according to the extent of their means. Did they not know this? One of the deputation.—Ko; he didn't know it. The President.— Why, yes you do; you know perfectly well it was the wealthy men of the South who dragoon ed the peoplo into secession. I lived in thf3 South, and I kuow how the thing was done. Your State was overwhelm ingly opposed to secession, but your rich men used the press and bullies and your little or-ny to force the State into eecesaij-. Take the 190,000 clause. Sup pose a man ia worth more than tliat, now the war is over, and the chances are ten to one that ne made it out of the rebellion by contracts, &c. We might as well talk plainly about this matter. I don't think tbat yoa are so very anxious about reliev ing the poor. You want this clause remov od so aa to enable you to make money, don't you? If you are very eager to help the poor, why don't you take the surplus over tho $20,000 ycu ownandgive it to them? In that way you'll help them, and bring yourselves within the beneii is of the pro clamation. lam free to say toyou that I think some of you ought to be taxed on all over 320,000 to help the poor. When I was Military Governor of Tennessee I assessed such taxi s on those who had been wealthy leaders of the rebellion, and. it had a good effect. One ofthe deputation.—"lt so hap pens that none of us were leaders.* We staid out as long as we could, and were the last to go in." How does the Rich mond Pep v': 'io like this speech ? Did a cringing alien, or a citizen, ever stoop so cringingly? The President.— Frequently those who went in last were among the worst after they got in. But be that as it may.— Understand me, gentlemen, Ido not say this personally. lam just speaking of the general working of the matter. 1 know there has been among some an ef fort to persuade the people that tlie Am nesty Proclamation whs injuring them by shutting up capital aud keeping work from the poor. It docs no such thing. If that is done at nil, it is done in con sequence of tlie violation of law and the commission of treason. The President said, finally, that he would look at the papers presented, but go far, he had seen no reason for remov ing the 13th exception. It sems to us that the proud natives of Richmond belittled themselves in at all presenting themselves before Mr. Johnson. He is not a Virginian! He ; is, according to the Richmond Hepub- j He, an alien, and, being an «"»«,»_. M I the grout fence which protects the Moth- , er of States.

It ia revolting to hang a man; but it ls of- „ ten necessary to do so. No sight could _ be so shocking, so revolting as tbe hang- I ing of a mother.

The Twenty Thousand Dollar Clause. ; A delegation representing tlie twenty | thousand dollar citizens of Richmond is i in Washington for the purpose of sug ! gestiug to the President some modiflca ' tion of the Amnesty Proclamation, es '. pecially as to the property exception.— The President being ill, these delegates ' did not succeed in getting an interview • witli him on Monday, but they were , sent to, and were some hours in consul - tation witli the Attorney We learn from good authority that 1 there will be soon issued by the F.esi -1 dent a new Proclamation modifying tliat » of tho 29th May. In this Proclamation ■ it will be provided tbat in Virginia, es » pe.ially, and probably in nil the States - South/the 520.000 exception be abolish - ed in cases where proceedings against * the property of individuals have been 0 instituted, or where la-ids have been or • aro now occupied by the Federal author e ities, under the act concerning abandon t ed lands. It is found that notwithstand - ing tlie several good reasons which » moved the President to the adoption of r the twenty thousand dollar exception. c there are as many equally potent why d that clause in the Proclamation should _ be abolished. One, especially convinc e ing, is found in the fact that it paraly. es • the property men in the matter of com i mercial credit. They can neither sell 1 their property nor borrow- money upon it until a parilon has been granted, llie s necessary delay in examining and pass e ing upon the applications of nearly a i, quarter of a million of petitioners efl'ec f tually preclude any immediate relief to these suffering men, who almost univer sally are out of money, and though pro -1 periy holders, are absolutely in want of a the necessaries of life. * As an illustration, not exaggerated, of i the helplessness ol the Southern pro f perty men, we may mention tlie case of • one whose income before the war was * over eighty thousand dollars per month, * and who for the past three months has " been living solely upon the proceeds of '. the sale of his family carriage, the latter fund being now about exhausted. Galveston Undei: th k Union.- The i reports of reviving business at the South i under the old flag, are very encouraging, i I Interrupted trade is feaping into vlgor ■ ous life again, and at Galveston, the last i to come back, arc the signs most fnvor ■ able.

The railroad makes three regu- . far trips per week, and also brings many passengers and freight. The amount of cotton received at this point the past two weeks we judge to be about 2.000 bales. Many of our returned Galveston mer- ' chants and others have opened offices, I or are preparing to do so at an early day. i Mechanics, especially carpenters, are in 1 demand, as there Is hardly a building < that does not sadly need repairs. «(>unds of the hammer and saw are heard I Fn all directions.

If all Galvestonians return, t and strangers continue to arrive tor the purpose of making -Galveston their a home, as during the past two weeks, it a will be necessary to repair the injured _ and build new houses.

Her crime consisted of snatching a bonnet and ret icule from a lady, on-*«ne of the streets leading from Fort Hill. She was indict ed for highway robbery, was convicted, and suffered tlie extreme penalty of thi law. A correspondent of the Boston Post, writing from Richmond says: Butler's Dutch (lap Canal is becoming renowned for a passage. Quite a num ber of vessels and steamers go through every day, which lessens the distance seven miles. I wish we had a Grant, Meade, ami McClellan Gap; we could make the passage to Fortress Monroe in oiie-lialf the time it now takes, and the expense of cutting would be but a trifle. In coming up or going down the river we pass Purler's observatory (or other wise called the Crow's Nest)tliree times, on account of the river being so crook ed. I make it a point to come in contact with the different classes of this State to get their Ideas of the future. To look at the present prospect you would not believe we had been fighting against one another for tho past four years.— Not a word hardly is uttered in reference to it, business is progressing rapidly, all classes are grasping for the "green backs." The last four or five years has put Richmond in the back ground In regard to the times and style, &c , but the citizens will soon make up for lost time, if they continue the course they have adopted. They are in constant dread of military authority, and. North erner though I am, so am I. All we ask is our State rights and everything will go smoothly. • mm In perusing the Northern papers, I observe quite a number of paragraphs that are most absurd about the ways and habits of our people.

There Is neither one nor monument to denote the spot, and the place where the re lic buried is an unfrequented lo ality, or comparatively so. A short ime before his death Mr. Lincoln wrote le ter expressing his intention to visit lie grave this summer, and cause a suit ble monument to be erected; and in ' his letter, (to an old friend) he express- * d the regret that the business cares of c is life had so long compelled him to n ctpo-ethisduty.

SVe are of the opinion if the record of some members of all the delegations from the South now at Washington were overhauled from the beginning of the war to its close, but precious little Unionism would be found developed in many of their character-—on the con trary, we think deeds and professions would be brought to light which would prove that until quite recently they were active supporters and upholders ol secession doctrines.

The Happy Woman.—The happy woman in this our world—which is ap parently meant to be the road to perfec tion, never its goal-you will find too few specimens to be ever likely to mis take her. But you will recognize her presence the moment she crosses your path. Not by her extreme livlineas— lively people*nre rarely either happy or able to diffuse happiness—but by a sense of brightness aud cheerfulness that en ters with her, as an evening sunbeam across your parlor wall. Like the fairy order in the nursery tale, she takes up the tangled threads of your mind, and reduces them to regularity, till you dis tinguish a clear pattern through the ugly mate. She may be neither handsome, nor clever, nor entertaining; yet, some how, she makes you feel "comfortable," because she Is so comfortable herself. She shames you out of your complain ings, for she makes none. Yet, may hap,' since it is the Divine law that wo should all, like our Master, be "made perfect through suflering,'' you are ful ly aware that she has-had far more sor row than ever you had; tliat her dally path, had you to tread It, would be to you as gloomy and full of pitfalls as to "her it is safe and bright. She may have even less than the medium lot of earthly blessings, yet all she has she enjoys to the full; and it is so pleasant to see any one enjoy! For her sorrows she neither hypocritically denies,iiorproudly smoth ers tliem—she simply bears them; there fore thev'.ome toher, as sorrows were meant to come, naturally and hand- s somely, and passing over, leave her full of compassion for all who may have to do the same.— Home Journal. The following is told among other tilings as having occurred during the conference between Mr. Lincoln and t.cneral Sherman, when tlie latter visit ed the President anil Lieutenant Gener al, just before tlie last advance on Rich mond: * - , ,«r i .enernl Sherman says: "I asked Mr. Lincoln explicitly, when I went up to City Point, whether he wanted me to capture Jell". Davis, or let him escape, and in reply he told me a story." That "story" may now have a histori cal value, and I give il therefore as Gen eral Sherman said Mr. Lincoln told It only promising that it was a favorite story witli Mr. Lincoln, which he told many times, and in illustration of many points of public policy. "I'll tell you, General," Mr. Lincoln was said to have begun, "I'll tell you what! think about taking Jeff. Davis. Out in Sangamon county there was an old temperance lecturer who wus very .strict in tlie doctrine and practice of to tal abstinacy. One day after n long ride in the hoi sim, he stopped at tlie house of a friend who proposed making him a lemonade. As the mild beverage was % being mixed, the friend insinuatingly _sked if he would't like just the ieust drop of something stronger to brace up his nerves after the exhausting heat and ' exercise. "No,' replied the lecturer, '1 could't think of it; I'm opposed to it on principle. 'But,'he added, witli a lon- I ging glance at the black bottle that t atood conveniently at hand, 'If you could jf manage to pat in a drop unbeknownst c to me, I guess it would't hurt me much!"' c "Now, General," .Mr. Lincoln is saidr t to have concluded, "I'm hound to oppose s the escape of .led. Davis; but if you could v manage to let liiiiislip out unbeknownst n like, I guess it would'nt hurt me much!" c "And that," exclaimed Gen. Slier f, man, "is all 1 could get out of the Uov is eminent a.s to what its policy was con is earning the Rebel leaden, till Stanton i, assailed nic for Davis' escape!" i, An Appeal for Rebel Soi_diers.— •- Tlie Richmond Bulletin of tho 4th" iv '- stant contains a letter signed " A Rebel I Soldier," in which a strong appeal is made in behalf of his comrades. He irgues that the old politicians should ' stand aside and allow the maimed and • llie crippled—those who have done the ' lighting fer the confederacy—to hold the ■ Offices. He dislikes parlies and party ■ names, but if parties are to be liiaugu -1 rated he does not wish to sail under tlie 1 banner of the "People's Union Party." lie claims tliat the rank and file of tho army are better citizens than nny other class in theJState, and will make honest and felt-Ail cfllcers. He glories in tho name of "Lee's Virginians," and from the name they have given to tlio Stato he is decidedly of tlie opinion that they should be rewarded with the " loaves and fishes." ■»» Birth on tiie C_Jtt.—On Friday last, Mrs. Kays, v lady residing in North Carolina, while on the Danville cars gave birth to two children.
