Our readers will remember that Gen eral Wise recently made application to General Terry for permission to return to his home in Princess Anne county, as under the terms of his parole. General Terry (through General Mann) refused, for specified reasons. Under date of September Ist, General Wise has written a letter to Genera Grant, forwarded through Gen. Terry, from which we make extracts. He re plies in succession to the points made in the letter of refusal, and after declaring that he never "abandoned his home," except in going to camp to defend it against invasion, with the full determi nation to return to it as soon as the chances of war should permit, he says, "I found no new home for my family ; they weresimply refugees from the old." He then writes as follows: If Gen. Terry was governed by earn est and honest convictions of duty, of right and authority in all he did—so was I. If he was a patriot—so was I. If he gave proof of his devotion—so did I. If he thought he had the shield of constitutional law and political sover eignty to protect him against the charge of rebellion and treason—so I thought 1 had. If he loved and cherished the Union of these States, I loved and cher ished it so cordially that I never from choice would have seceded from it, but Prepared to "fight in the Union;" and if c wondered ho w I now can truly declare these sentiments, after voting for seces sion and taking up arms against the acts of the Federal Executive and Congress, I must beg him to remember that he and I have been taught In different schools of politics, and that will account for our | differences of opinion, and ought to al low a large margin for charity, at least, if not toleration. If he was trained in the school of Hamilton and the elder Adams, I was in that of Jefferson and Madison; and he would boldly expose himself to the charge of bigotry and pre sumption, who would charge either school witli teacliintr rebellion and trea son. It is dangerous to either adopt the dogmas of treuson and rebellion against the other, alternating in domination as they liave done so often already in our history. Each might shoot and hang the other by turns iv the course of hall EL CGllturV" * If General Terry believed in consoli dation, I believed in States' rights and powers. If he believed that the Federal Executive, and Congress, and the ju diciary, possessed absolute, I believed they had only relative and delegated, sovereignty. If he believed that they were unchecked and unbalanced by other powers, I believed thut the whole system of the United States, State and Eederal, was composed of reciprocal checks and balances, and that the sove reign States were the basis, checks ami balances of the Federal Government. 1 was taught that the States were not WfHMt. but c piuribus unurn, and this many in one, one in many. When call ed a Rebel, I shall point to the of Virginia's buckler, und claim that my sovereign State is sole sponsor for the acts of her own citizens and subjects. 1 am no Rebel or traitor, and never was, and my State cannot be either. She has still a sovereignty by the Constitution ol the United States, and by the original authority before it ever existed, unless I she is now utterly demolished by subju gation, and unless that is destroyed by any force which has demolished her. These are still the tenets of my faith, and I believe these truths will perpetu ally revive and prevail to preserve the ?üblican freedom of the people of the , nited States. When the civil liberty for which I devoutly pray really comes again I can, without hindrance, fall on the bosom of my country and weep with her "for any wrongs we have done." I am now a prisoner on parole. I dare not now ask of her any favor, great or small. I claim only of her good laith, the precious privilege promised me by her highest agents, to go to my home and be at peace. * So far from my being opposed to tho name "freedmen," as indicating tho condition of slaves freed by the war, the chief consolation I have in the result of the war is that slavery is forever abolish ed ; that not only the slaves arc, in fact, at least freed from bondage, but that 1 am freed from them. Long before the war, indeed, I had definitely made up my mind actively to advocate emancipa tion throughout the South. I had de termined, if I could help it, my descend ants should never be subject to the hu miliation I have been subject to by the weakness, if not the wickedness, of slavery; and while I caunot as lawful and humane the violent and shocking mode in which it has been abolished, yet I accept the fact most heartily as an accomplished one, ana an determined not only to abide by it_ai.il acquiesce in it, but to strive by all the means in my power to make it benen eent to both races and a blessing espec ially to our country. I unfeigned!}' re joice at the fact, and am reconciled to many of the worst calamities of the war, because I am now convinced that the war was special providence of God, una voidable by the nations at either ex treme to tear loose from us a black idol from which we could never have been separated by any other means than those of Are aud blood, sword and sacrifice.

THE DISEASE INCREASING ITS RAVAGES—TOOK HUNDRED PERSONS CARRIED OFF EVKItY DAY HOW THE DEAD ARE BURIED—FLIGHT OFTHF POPULATION TO THE MOUNTAINS-WIIOLESALK DESOLATION OF THE LABORING CLASSES HEART-RENDINO SCENES. [Special Corresponiienoe of Ihe Wash!Ußton Chroniclr. The cholera has greatly Increased in violence since my last, und for the two «t weeks it has beeu carrying off about persons daily, exclusive of the army [ navy, from which we have no accu rate reports. It is impossible to obtain a full list of the deaths, and I think it is safer to assume that the average iiuni ber of deaths for the above period has heen 400 daily. Home 5,000 person havi probably died of the disease since it tirsl broke out here.. It still continues it. ravuges, the official reports for the last few days being about 280 deaths daily. It has returned to the Christian quar ter of Pera, where it had ceased for a time, in consequence of the greater number of interments inthe Mussulman cemeteries, and which are made but about a foot below the surface of the earth. Strange to say most of these in terments were made directly parallel with one of the most frequented prome nades In the heart of Pera. Being in sufficiently covered with lime, the ex halations from them aro spreading a pestilential atmosphere through the most populous section of the city, and where the foreign embassies are located. Unless proper sanitary measures are soon adopted to correct this source of disease, we shall have tho Oriental plague again upon us in its worst form. The overcrowded cemeteries, and the careless manner in which the dead have been buried, I fear will, at all-events, be the cause of a great deal of typhus and similarooinplaintsintheconiingautunin and winter. The cholera seems to be more malig nant in fine, pure, dry weather than iv any other. Such weather has prevailed here during almost tho whole period ot I its exißteuee. During this klud ot I weather there is an insufficient propor- I tion of ozone in the atmosphere, as' has I heen found by repeated tests, and it is I only when this element of the atmos phere is restored by storms and rain that we may look for the cessation of the epi demic. Elevated sites having more o it, it is for this reason that the summit! of hills and mountain ranges are tilt safest places of refuge during cholera reasons. Indeed, great heights may be said to be almost out of reach of the cholera. The population of the Capital and neighboring villages have tied in ail » directions, aud the mountains are coy lered with encampments of fugitive fam ilies. The Turkish Government, in order to diminish the number of victims, pro vided steamers for the transport of the laboring classes to their homes on the coasts of the Empire, and nearly 90,000 liave thus been carried away from tht city free of charge. Constantinople lia lost one-third of its population In thl way and by flight. In the village o Uayahdere, where I have been passing the slimmer, ai least two-thirds of th people, panic-struck at the fearful mor I tality around them, have fled into th opeii country. The mortality has been increased b the vegetable diet to which the grea majority of the population is condemnet by their extreme poverty. Meat is th staple article of food in cholera seasons and those who live chiefly ou it, ab staining genelully from vegetables, ar the most exempt from the disease Meat being dear here, it is out of reac of the poorer classes. To provide thei with this necessary article of food, sub scriptions have been started, and larg sums of money have been raised, but o course they are inadequate to supply th demand. Since the Crimean war, Con. stantinople has, in truth, become an enormously dear place, and it is no ex aggeration to say that it is now the dear est Capital In the world. The distress existing here in conse quence of the devastation in families by the cholera, is heart-rending. Many art left without any means of sustenances and they wander about the streets in helpless, despairing misery. The sights as witnessed in Constantinople now, with the unattended tumbrils loaded with coffins passing on continuously to the cemeteries, day and night, are hor rible in the extreme, and can never be effaced from the memory. Sensation in a New York City Car- A very extraordinary scene occurred the other day, in car No. 12, of tho Third Avenue line. While the car was going down town, with the usual miscellan eous car-go, a well dressed gentleman got in near the corner of bixtecnth street, but owing to the crowded condi tion of the vehicle, he was «W«"«»*° remain standing on the platform. He had scarcely been there five minutes, when a most extraordidary. hubbub arose inside, one gentleman exclaiming that his watch was gone another com plaining of the loss of his pocket-book, While an old Irish apple-vender de clared, in the richest Milesian tones, that the contents of her basket had dis appeared "intirely " and kept shower in.rher choicest epithets on the "mur therin spalpeen" who had takeu ad vantage of a "poor, lorn woman." Twoel derly New England spinsters also joined in the chorus, the one missing her band kerchief and the other herportmonnaie. Matters now assumed a setious aspect. The Conductor stopped the "machine" and started after a policeman', and a well known city merchant suggested the propriety of every one submitting to re searched, offering to set the example himself. The suggestion was unani mously adopted, and the operation com menced iv the presence of the police man, who just then made his appear ance with the conductor. The scene which ensued baffles description. The well-known down-town merchant's coat pocket-, to his v 11 in i«l likeable horror an. I astonishment, were found crammed with the old Irish woman's apples, which had also found their way into the poc kets of the gentleman who had been i robbed of his watch and in those of the complaining spinsters, while the mis- I sing poeket-bookand handkerchief were discovered on the person of tho MWsy s^»ri^2r«» watch £& st_adPng°" tf.e platform, but who ad taken advantage of the 'noise and confusion" to secure a seat inside, quiet ly picked up two apples from the floor, ana opening them, found the missing W»WU W ¥tt» Wis, the p«IW-WV__»W.U : TERMS OF ADVERTISING: THE NORFOLK POST Offers the best terras to Advertisers, aud Its price, will ilways con-pond with the general adrerti.ing ratMla .ther cities.

About this time, the stronger was recognized, by one of the passen gers, as Herrmann, the celebrated pres- Hdigitateur, who then explained that, feeling very tired of standing up, he thought lie might procure a sent by cre ating a slight commotion inside; and, having accomplished his object, now begged to apologize for the liberty he bud taken. Roars of laughter pro nounced him "not guilty ;" but the old Irish woman continued to grumble, and like Rachel, would not be comforted for tlie loss of her apples, many of which bad Buttered a total eclipse \tk (he con fusion of the moment. A two-and-a half gold piece, opportunely slipped into her hand by Herrmann, soon re conciled her, however, to the new state of things, and, alighting witb her empty basket, she went ou her way rejoicing. —Home Journal. -„,. _. laiuiO- of the Steamer Niagara.

Davis' brother-in-law at the Pulaski House, Savannah. W make the following extract: Oil the evening of the occurrence, as I was descending the stairs at the I'ulaski House, I saw v party at the foot, ingray clothes, some of them evidently under I the influence of liquor, who were talk ing loudly, disloyally, and in a manner especially offensive to any Yankee offi cer. After wuiting a moment for a friend, I passed them witli some diffi culty, and in doing so Mr. Howell re peated several offensive epithets—too profane and vulgar for publication— whicli were evidently intended for my ear. I replied "If you do not use a lit tle more respectful language in my pre sence I shall be forced to compel yon." He responded with a coarse personal insult to me, and I knocked hint down. As I was walking away Major Short ac costed me. I turned and said to hfni, "I don't want any conversation with you." He replied, "C—d d—n you, 1 don't want any conversation with you." I struck him ; and just then the guard, previously summoned by some party without my knowledge, came in and arrested Howell ami Short. I do not wish the impression to obtain that I am a pugilist and a rowdy, and have stated the facts to show what my provocation really was. I am, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, Geoßoe W.

A correspond ent of the Chicago Tribune gives theso details: RThe talented Edwin Booth ia soon to mear ou the stage. At the time of iad occurrence that drove him to •ate life, he announced his determl atioii never to come before the public airaiii. Of the most earnest and uncom promising loyalty, and possessing social iiualitiesthat had won liiminatiy friends, he received the hearty sympathy of the northern people. Before the close of April his admirers made preliminary ar rangements, unknown to Mr. Booth, to bring him upon the stage during the present autumn. He has now joined his brother-in-law, Mr. Clarke, of I'hila delphia, iv the management of the Arch Street Theatre of that city. He will not appear before the audiences of Philadel phia for the present, and it is probable that the design of a testimonial benefit in New York will be carried out. Be : yond question the best American actor i lv the standard drama, Edwin Booth will receive the rapturous applause ot the theatre-going public of this metropo lis whenever lie consents to appear at like lwulU__t* - '
