He iufurms us that Hale pitched into the Hickman Courier pretty roughly, complaiuing that we had accused him of having "wool iu his teeth but didn't grin broad enough to show it," and charging that we had learned our democracy from the Louisville Courier Journal and that wasn't much democracy. Our reference to Major Ilalc's "hav ing wool iu his teeth," etc., was an inno cent illustration of his liberal views as a man aud his extreme position as a politi cian, and we shall be sorry if he con- strues it otherwise Not to give the Major too hard a les son, involving somewhat of the . funda mental ba.-i.s of the .

Therefore, its agitatiou is beyond coutrol, until ex isting facts arc changed. .. Our view offers peace, victory, and re stored constitutional liberty, while thc opposite offers only strife, discord, bittcr ucse, aud finally must culminate iu revo lution and war. Of course, we know that Major Hale is as far from desiring such a result as Capt. Clark or oursclf, but in our judgment, the legitimale re sult of this coutinucd fauuing of thc prejudices on thc negro question aud deep rooted opposition to established law, is war with all its bloody' horrors.

After this division of spoils Stone re sail ed for Europe immediately, and is uow in St. Petersburg. "In his first efforts to raise money Stone communicated a portion of his plans to two or three parties from whom he attempted to borrow. These individ uals, from fear or morality, declined to go in, but kept an eye on Stons. ''The information received from Stone was quietly imported to one or two par ties iu ttrictcst confidence. The conti deuce was so strict that it reached the ear rf Col. Thompson, then chief of tl.c revenue detectives. He immediately told the whole story to Gen. l'leasanton, and asked his advice as to what to do. l'leas anton advised him to go to Secretary Boutwell aud lay thc matter before him, as such matters were not within the ju risdiction of the Internal Hevcnue Bureau.

Thia committee reported that there was not a single conutt-ifeit bond among thc seventy million exam ined.
