The witness on the stand, an Indiana cavalry man, named George W. Gray, had been testifying to some outrages on the part of Wirz that had not been put in evidence before. He stated that the party of prisoners in whose company he arrived at Anderson ville were ordered to place their blankets, haversacks and knapsacks, etc., in one 1 place, when an officer mounted on a I gray horse rode up, aud told the Con federate soldiers to help themselves, and let the prisoners have the remainder. I The Confederates helped themselves. and there was nothing left. He was noi certain whether the mounted officer was Captain Wirz or not. In June or July, 1864, the witness and a young fellow named Underwood of the Seventeenth Indiana Cavalry (his own regiment) went to the sutler's tent. Wirz was there. Underwood asked for 1 something to rub his wound with. The sutler said he would give it, When Wirz said, "No, he cannot have it unless he pays me a dollar." Underwood gave Wirz his only money, which was a ten dollar bill, and when he asked for the change Wirz kicked him out ofthe door. Tlie witness waa put in the stocks four days for attempting to escape. He knew a man to die in the stocks in August or September, 1884. The negroes took him out of the stocks after tie wus dead, threw htß body into a wagon,and baulen I it off. He knew Wirz to shoot a young I fellow named William Stewart, belong ing to the Ninth Minnesota Infantry.— He and the witness had gone out of the stockade with a dead body which they I had begged, when they met Capt. Wirz. I He rode up to them after they had leli I 1 the body in the deadhmise, and asked 1 them by what authority they were out there. Stewart replied that they were there by proper authority. Wirz said | ! no more, but drew his revolver aud shot - him. , , ' After he was killed the guards took , from his body twenty or thirty dollars. . Wirz took the money from the guards, ' antl rode off, telling them to carry the ' witness to prison. It was the witness s determination to escape it he could, and for that reason he had gone out, but he • was not attempting to do so at the time.

The prisoner here mode an effort to contradict the witness, uttering some in coherent expressions about not having been seen by the witness with Lieuten ant Davis. He was with difficulty re strained and silenced by the officer In charge, Lieut. Murphy. The Judge Advocate, apparently h ot satisfied with the opportunity which thY witness had for identification, asked the prisoner to rise. Gathering up as well as he could his loose ill-jointed frame, which appeared an if it might fall to pieces, the prisoner tottered to his feet, and was supported in that attitude by the officer of the guard. His eyes had a wild expression, and it was hard to re press sympathy with the unfortunate man. Again the Judge Advocate repeated his question to the witness. The wit ness reply thia time was more hesitat ing, and was, "I think that is the man." Another wild and fruitless at tempt at contradiction was made by ~\\ r in, when he was partly drawn and pa.-tly sank on the lounge, where, by. ord'T of Gen.

The expedition will sail from this city on the 30tlr instant, aud it is probable that Governor Andrew will be present and make a speech before the lines are cast off. The Continental is loaned for this purpose by the govern ment who wish to send her to the Pa cific to take her place therein govern ment transportation, i-he goes out, therefore, loaded with female emigrants nstead of naval stores. The voyage is expected to be made in from sixty to eighty days. Mr. Mercer pays all the bills and It roks to the future for his reim bursement, If he gets it all Some of the ladies pay apart of the rdtosage mo ney Of the whole number, three hun dred are orphan daughters of dead sol diers. Niarly all arei orphans, and all are accustomed to work. Most of them are women of flue intelligence. They go out to find homes in the Territory, and, of course, to be married there. Mr. Mercer is a native of Illinois, who, after being educated at an Ohio college, went to Washiiigthn Territory six years ago. Reaching there without funds, his first work was in digginga cellar for the new university. When the college was completed he was made its president, an office he still holds. He may be said to have been Identified with that institu tion from its foundation. Last year he came to the States ami took out twelve female teachers. These met the wants of the people, and are now all well mar ried—a blissful augury of the success of his present enterprise. Mr. Mercer has his wholeheart in this project, aud regards it as a great means of improving, advancingand settling the Territory. The country has men, but no women, and the farmersand lumber men—good, thrifty, energetic Eastern men—want wives. Verily, they shall have them out of this party, iv all the " continuous woods where rolls the Ore gon," and which, havingfora long time head no sound "saveitsown dashings,' shall henceforth hear the sweet prattle of childhood and the music of rockers. Happy Oregon! Since the hunt for the Golden I leece or the voyage of Cleopatra's barge, no such expedition as tills has ever crossed the seas.and Washington Territory opens wide its arms in welcome to the adven turous travellers who aeek a "local habi tation" and a change of name in these untried regions. The Territory, after this arrival, will he even more anxious to take its place in the Union than now. Mr. Mercer will also take out to Ore gon a dozen shoemakers by way of look ing after the soles of the population. Personal. — The Washington Re publican states that Mr. I. W. Butts ol the Norfolk press, is at the National Hotel in that city. The correspondent of tlie New York Herald telegraphs o)i Thursday night, that " Mr. C.W. Butts, the present nominee of one ofthe wint;s or the administration party from the 1 Congressional district of Norfolk, \ a., 1 arrived in town this morning, ami hud an interview witli the President. It is I authoritatively stated since his arrival \ that he has decided to withdraw from ' 1 the canvass, with a published call to his adherents to give their support to L. H.

Mr. Butts j believes that by offering two names for the support of "the administration party In tbatdistrict, thceloction ofthe candi date of the opposition would thereby be insured. Hence he takes the initiative in withdrawing from the contest and ! counselling a general consolidation of strength upon the election of Mr. Chandler." Had Mr. Butts remained '. 1 in the field he would, his friends think, I have been elected to Congress. Mr. J Butts is a leading lawyer here, a read. .

The VRlue of precious stones consid ered as investments requires two quali fications. The very large stones have become in course of time comparatively valueless for want of purchasers. The Saucy was sold the other day to a Par see for £20,000, but (here are very few private individuals left in the world who will pay £l,oon a year for the pleas ure of being known its possessors of one of the historic diamonds. Even crownttt heads dislike tt) appear so foolishly ex travagant; and it may, we think, be laid down ai an axiom that no stone whatever is worth £.!5,000 sterling, i.e. that no stone could be sold on a pinch for any such figure. Captain Negroni'* glorious sapphire, which he estimated at some ttIW.OOO. will scarcely find a purchaser out of Turkey at a tenth of that amount, and even in it ministers would remonstrate if the Sultan gave much more. Then the owners of smal ler stones are exposed to one very lmn 1$ nent danger. Tlie discovery of the Ba liia mines sent the price of diamonds down one half; and as the Americans extend their authority into the gold anil silver producing regioiissuch discoveries may be repeated. The Burmese monop oly, again, cannot endure for ever, and whenever it is broken up the price of rubies will at least for a time diminish. We may have emeralds also yet both from America and Siberia, science hav ing done exceedingly little to forward the careful search which is certain ontt day to be made, and which ought, IR Siberia, at all events, to produce note worthy result*. The dearest stone ia the niby, which, always assuming that it is of'true pigeon's blood red, purity, and spread, sells thus :—A ruby ot one carat weight is worth £14 to £20; If I rata *26 to £35; two .arats, £70 to 0 three carats, *SOO to £250; four rats t KM) to £150. Below one carat UMtue sold at from £2to£B per carat, ■i above four they become tancy arU m to which price can scarcely be lixed A retvifv splendid ruby ring, ltH>rfoi?taWfi toneof tW ° Carat,, will therefore cost £85. . . .. The next dearest is the dialßOud, thu price, lie it remeruliered, referring Otliv to "brilliants," (. jt. diamonds thick enough to admit of proper cutting. A diamond ring, therefore, with a siu gle magnificent stone of two carat*, ought to be purchasable for £70, or about 83 per cent of the value of a similar ring in ruby. The emerald, though it seems dearer, is not. so, thttvalue not increasing so rapidly; so that, although the price per carat "of a perfect specimen may vary from Xlio to £40, it does not rise in pro portion with its size 8o of the sapphire. "The value of the sapphire doeu not, like that of the ruby, increase so enor mously in proportion with its size. A fine perfect, evenly colored, spread sap phire, weighing «>iw «'arat, of a deep rich blue color by night as well as by day, is worth £20; whilst a sapphire wtuallv fine, of 100 carats, would not be worth" more than £2,000 or £3,000 A I ruby <>f the same size and perfection would )>e tbe most valuable gem in exls tooee, surpassing even that of the fluent diamond. Legacy duty lias been paid uiion a sapphire supposed to be worth £10,000, hut it is doubtful if ever the gent could be sold for that aiiioiinl. Pearls, when of large size, obtain taliey prices, ' but Mr. Emanuel believe.,' V 2*» " v ls J""" 1 tided in saying that perfect white pearl drops, of 80 to 100 grama, may be estima ted at from £7 to £11 per gram ; those of 50 to 80 grains, at from £4 to£7 per grain, and those of 80 to 60 at from £3 to £o jier grain. Ordinary pearls fetch lower prices. a pearl of one grain weight, 22a; ot eight grains, 90s. It will be remembered that all these values apply only to the best specimens, and if dealing with an un known seller the buyer should test the stones. He will find these general rules useful:—First, nothing that a rile will cut is a precious stone; secondly, that the file should be used on both sides, to avoid the trick, very common in Italy, of fastening a slice of the real article on to a false basis; thirdly, a atone cannot be genuine if of very much less than Its proper specific gravity. It Is also worth remembering that a sapphire will not scratch a diamond, and that the ancient test of the hammer is also absolutely worthless, very valuable stones breaking under it almost as readily as glass. As to color, the very best preparation for buying Is to educate your eyes by ob serving carefully good specimens, the sneciaiitiesof color being incommunica ble in any other way. It is possible, however, to ascertain by a simple rule, whether a stone has two shades—a very -vrumon fault. Hold it in clear water nt.. -v i nc h from the surface, and the about a.. "-s a,t once appareut, and the shades will Ox.. ••-»*» c»1M« into each points at which i v . . other. This observation must be extpmi ed to uncut jewels, which djflk?#s«Eit ...appearance from the c t»llZ e \\? anu sometimes look absolutely worth less. Ti!C. re »r~ sapphires, for example in Captain fHiSfom'u collection, which would, to an inexperienced eye, seem dirty pebbles. A fine, clear deep eo ored amethyst of the size of a floria ia worth from £10 to£l•*», and years ago was worth many times that amount, the value having been reduced by heavy mportations from Brazil. Oriental am ethysts, it must be remembered, are really sapphires, and of much greater value, though the stones sold under that name are usually so called from igno rance. Garnet's cut tM tufoochon are called carbuncles, and when of large size and free from spots are frequently worth £20, but no other garneta have much commercial value. Topazes, again, are worth very little— Spectator. Bwteaß "Where Did it Come From?—lt will be remembered that the Associated Press report of President Johnson's speech to the Southern delegation con tained the following seiitei.iv : " He did not believe the sensation let ter-writers and editors who were en deavoring to create the impression that there exists in the South disuflection and dissatisfaction, for the presence of so many eminent and distinguished gentle men, representing such a largeeonatitu ency, fully disapproved the fact and gave the lie to their pestilent and malignant, utterances." Now, neither the full report that was tent on the night of the address to thu \ew York Times, nor the report revised »,- the Ptesident himself, which has uce appeared in the Washington Chronicle, contain anything like tho above extract. Where, then,did itcouie from? The sentence above afforded . considerable gratification to the press la this and other cities who have been ill Eitby with the late rebellion, aud thor should be made known to Wheie did it come from*.
