Tho Spirit with its usual regard for the truth saya in its last issue, that the numborof men furnished by New York city for the war (110,000) is almost as large as the entire number furnished by New Etiglaud. ihe faots of tho case are that New England furnished 000,945 men, more that three times tho number furnished by New York city. Rhode Island sent more troops in pro portion to her population than any other Btatc in the Union, except Kansas. Mie statistics show that the New England states responded as fully in proportion to their population, to the calls for men, as their sisters. They did it too without fraud, rioting and bloodshed, and without the presence of United States troops to compel them to their duty,as was the case in New York city. The character also of the men sent was mora rel.uble as eol diers than those furnished by New York city. Tho records of the Frovost Mar shal's Office in this place, shows that of the deserters from Sheridan's army last fall aud winter who were arrested herc at the rate ot 90 to 100 per month, fuur- Cfths of them were New York soldiers. — many of them with their bounty money still in their pockets. \Y e admit howev er, that the Spirit has stated one fact, ''New York city is a copperhead hole." — Chamhersbur<j iujiository. According to the late clectiong for members of the British House of Parlia ment, liberalism is fast gettiug the upper hand. The latest returns showed a ma jority for the government of eighty two. 'This majority would probably be reduced when the county elections had taken place but it was confidently anticipated that Lord Palmcrston would secure a larger majority in the new Parliament than ho lmd in the old. Among the most notable men elected were J. Stuart Mill, the dis tinguished philosopher, whose views on are so extended that ho favors woman suffrage, and Mr. Hughs, the au thor of "Tom Brown," who, next to John Bright, ranks as the ablest friends of America in England. Lord A. Paget,of the Admiralty, and Mr. Fred. Peel, son of tbo first Sir llobcrt Peel, and one of the Lords of the Treasury, had been re jected by their constituents. The Appointment of 11. 11. Helper to the Assessorship of the Third District, N.C., has given great offence to the Cop perheads of the North. Mr. Helper is a Southern man, and many years ago com piled a book from official facts and figures to show the rottennncss of slavery and tho expense it was to all Jic States to main tain the institution. For this labor Hel per invoked the anger of Northern Dem ocrats because it endangered the source of their political power, and the hatred of Southern traitors, because it exposed the atrocity of the effort to destroy the Amer ican L'nion. One of the Funny Facts in connection with the collapse of the slave-holders re bellion is that in connection with the pay ment of all prominent lebel State and Confederate officers. By receipt books which have come into the possession of tho authorities, it is shown that rebel officers were extremely auiious to have their pay in gold. These knaves never trusted in their own cause, because they refused to receive its currency. The rebel Gen. Kirby Smith with a force of-8,000 to 10,000 rebel troops,with four pieces of artillery an 1 seventy-live wagons of am munition and provisions, were captured by the Governor ol'Saltillo, of the Liberal Government iu Mexico. — It is reported they wore going tu join Maximilian. Tlio officers and men were paroled. Collax iho Speaker of the House of Jlepreseutatives during the last it ia conceded will be elected to the same position at the opening of the ncxtsoesiou.

SIRRATT. i As there have been somo manifcsta ' tions cr expressions of sympathy for Mrs Surratt, who has ignomiuiously paid the penalty of her crime in connection with tho assassination of President Lincoln, the following resume of tho evidence elicited on the trial against her will prove highly interesting: Mrs. Surratt on whom the principal | interest will concentrate, is a married woman, of about forty five years of age. •She lias occupied a good position in so ciety, and owns a tavern and farm at Surrattsville, thirteen miles from Wash i ' ington City. This tavern is now notori jous as tho rcsidenco of Lloyd, the prin cipal witness against Mrs. Surratt, and who was evidently a conspirator, and would probably have been tried, had it not been a necessity on tho part of tho Government to use him as a witness. For some time past Mrs. Sur ratt has resided on II street, Washington | City, in a respectable four story brick house, ller residence has been the ren ! devous for a select company of blockade runners of both sexes, one of whom was | her son, John li. Surratt, and who also was one of the principal actors, probably the financier, of the conspiracy which culminated in the assassination of the ! President. Mrs. Surratt's house was also the rendezvous of tho conspirators, ! of whom Eooth wa3 the loading spirit. ■ Payne lodged there on two separate occa sions. Atzcroth was proved to have I been there, and Booth was a frequent and always welcome visitor. llcr household consisted of herself, her • daughter, Miss Mary E. Surratt, Miss Ilonoria Fitzpatrick, Air. llolahan, and Louis Welchman. All of these individuals have appeared 'on the stand as witnesses, with the ex ception of Welchman, who has been con fined in the Old Capitol prison. None of them have been suspected of complicity in the plot, though they are known to have been ia sympathy with tho Rebel* lion. The authorities at Washington held Welchman as a prisoner, not beiug willing to believe that any man was per mitted to know so much of a conspiracy ;without being intrusted with the whole.: ; lie was called to the stand fuur times on the part of the Government, and sub-; iectcd each time to a rigid and lengthy cross examination by the defense; but notwithstanding all their efforts to prove . him a co-couspirator, from having been omyloyed by Booth, John 11. Surratt and Mrs. Surratt, it was shown, beyond: doubt, that they availed themselves of his good nature and obliging disposition, without ever entrusting him with the secrets of their scheme. It is hard to beliore that a woman, under the mask of a comely face and mild 1 demeanor, could ever he guilty of com plicity in a deed EO foul and hazardous as; j the capture or assassination of the Vresi- ! i dent and the heads ot the Government; ! but this woman's history furuishes, per haps, tho only instance in modern times, • 1 of a spirit as wickedly capable and toalig-j nant as Lady Macbeth. "We are ready, however, to believe, for humanity's sake,! that John 11. Surratt first determined: upon these terrible deeds, and that he availed himself of his mother's allectiou to draw her into complicity. That the plot of the 14th was not the : first attempt of these desperadoes, it is abundantly evident. Welehman testified that about the 20lb of March, while iu Mrs. Surratt's parlor, the manifested! great excitement, and wept bitterly that her son dohu had left the city never to return. That afternoon John "it. Surratt returned to the house in a state of great excitement, pacing the room more like a maniac than a sane man ; he flourished a ! | pistol, and swore that his prospects vvere blasted, and his hopes gone, that he would shoot any one who tame into the room; lie also was armed, and was laboring un-j der great excitement; ho was immedi ately followed by Booth, who, also, was EO much excited that he did not for some • time notice the presence of Welehman. Observing him, however, at a suggestion from Booth, these conspirators withdrew to an upper room, where they held a lengthened interview. It is evident that these parties left Mrs. Surrati's house that day intcut on some foul plot of as sassination ; but, from causes which have never bvou fully explained, tho scheme failed, and the guilty participators re turned, foiled, reckless and enraged. The principal witnesses against Mrs. Surratt wcro John M. Lloyd, the keeper of the Surrattsvillo tavern, and Louis Welehman. About bix weeks before the assassination, JJoyd testifies that llarohl, Atzcroth and John 11. Surratt came to Lloyd's tavern at Surrattsville, bringing with them two Spencer carbiucs, formid able seven shooting rifles, also ammuni tion and a rope. Surratt wished the wit ness to conceal these weapons, and he himself showed Lloyd where to conceal them, betwenu the joists aud the second floor. On Monday preceding the Friday of the murder, Weioliman was sent to Booth, to obtaiu from him the use of his horse aud buggy. Bootli bad sold the buggy, but gave Weichman tcu dollars, with which to hire one for Mrs. Surratt. He did so and drove her to Surrattsville, to Lloyd's tavern. What took place there 13 not fully known. On the afternoon of the 14th, the day of the assassination, Weichman again drove Mrs. Surratt to Lloyd's tavern, Booth having Lad a con ference with her a few minutes before she left. Weichman testifies that, on that occasion, she took with her two parcels. Lloyd testifies that those parcles contained a licit! glufij aud tWO buttles of wbLkCy and that in her conference with him, she desired to have ''those shooting irons ready for parties who would call that night." It was afterwards known in Washing ton that other facts had come to light as conclusive as any which came out upon the stand, implicating Mrs. Surratt in these deeds of death. During the ride to Surrattsville, on the afternoon of the 14th, she inquired of a person wh'o lived on the road, if the pickets remained out all night, and ou being told that they were cniicd in at eight o'clock, replied that she was glad to know it. On the evening of the 14th of April she was pacing her sitting room, counting her beads, iu a state of highly nervous excite ment: A torchlight procession was pa rading the city, in celebration of the national victories) she inquired of Wcich rnan the direction the procession was taking, remarking that sho had great interest in that precession. Sho desired Welchman and her daughter, Miss Sur ratt, also Miss Fitzpatrick, to "pray for her intentions." These young people were making some noise with their talk ing and laughter and she excitedly bade all of them to leave the roorn. Before this, some one came to the house and rang the bell. Mrs. Surratt answered at the door. It was aferwards known that the person who called was J. Wilkes Booth, who doubtless came to inquire the result of her visit to Lloyd's tavern, and to as certain if the arrangements made were such that lie might rely upon them. The fact that Lloyd had the "shooting irons" ready,in obedience to Mrs.Surratt's instructions, and that Booth and Harold, in their flight after tho guilty deed, did call at Lloyd's tavern, and obtained oue of the two carbines, Booth confessing his inability from his wound to carry the ether, leaves no question as to Mrs. Sur ratt's guilty knowledge of and participa tion in the conspiracy. Another proof of the guilt of this wo man is circumstantially furnished in the return of Payne to her house, as to a place of refuge, after three days and nights of skulking before tho pursuing officers of justice. The Surratt house ■ was ou Monday night taken possession of by a military guard. They had not occupied it an hour when a ring at the door was heard. It was answered by an oflicer. A man stood at the door,having; dirty hands and soiled garments, a pick j upon his shoulder, and upon Lis head, for j a cap, what afteiwards proved to he a! sleeve cut from his woolen shirt. liuding himself entrapped, lie pro fessed to account for his visit at so un seasonable an hour, by stating tbat be had come to dig a drain for Mrs. ourratt. In answer to other inquiries, be said be was a laboring man ; tbat lie bad no money; and accounted for bis dirty appearance by saying that he had to sleep in the trenches round Washington. The dis covery of a twenty dollar bill, a tooth brush, a pocket compass, ajar of pomade, a pocket dictionary, and other items which laboring men do not usually carry, was deemed sufficiently suspicious to detain him. Mrs. Surratt was asked if she knew him, and she solemnly appealed to her God that she had Dover seen him before. This man was Lewis I'ayue ; the assassin of Secretary Seward. The Gettysburg Momunint The Philadelphia Inquirer says : "The design of the Gettysbdrg monu-j ment is adapted for execution cither in. marble or in granite and bronze, as may; be deemed expedient, the material being ; of course controlled entirely by the amount appropriated. 'The wholo rcn-j ucring of the design is intended to be purely historical, telliug its own story ; with such simplicity that any discerning' mind will readily comprchcud its mean ing and purpose. "The superstructure is sixty feet high, and consists of a massive pedestal sixty five feet square at the base, and i 3 crown ed with a collosal statue representing the Genius 01 Liberty. Standing upon a tLreo quarter globe, she raises with her right hand the victor's wreath of laurel, while with her left she gathers up the folds of our nationrl flag uudur which the victory has been won. "Projecting from the angles of the pedestal are lour buttresses, supporting an equal number of allegorical statues, representing respectively, War, History, Peace and Plenty. ''War is personified by a statuo of the American soldier, who, rcstiug from the conflict, relates to fliatory the story of the battle which this mouumeut is in tended to commemorate. "ILietory, Lu listening attitude, records with stylus and tablet, achievments of the field, aud the names of the honored dead. "Peace 13 symbolized by a statue of the American mechanic, characterized by appropriate accessories. "Plenty is represented by a female Ggure, with a sheaf of wheat and fruits of the earth typifying peace and abun dance as the soldiers crowning triumph. "The panels of the ruain die between the statues arc to have inscribed upon them such inscriptions as may hereafter be determined "The main die of the pedestal ia octa gonal in form, panelled upon each face. The cornice and plinth above are also octagonal, and are heavily moulded Upon this plinth rests an octagoual moulded base bearing upou its face, iu high relief, the oationa! arms.

Sanitary Commission, Dr. Bellows, has issued a farewell address to the branches and aid societies, notifying them that their labor iu collecting supplies for the Commission j now ends. Such supplies as are on hand are to be forwarded io the receiving de pots. In the Eastern department, the work of supply is substantially done, with the exception of a small service still required in the neighborhood of Wash ington. In tlio Western department it may continue, on a very diminished scale, a couple of months longer. In Texas and the Gulf possibly the supply service may last all summer. But by economy of the stores in hand, the Commission feci authorized to say that, after collect ing what is already in existence, they will be able to meet all just demands made upon them. The President speaks ; earnestly of tlio aid the ladies of the country havo given to this benevolent enterprise, and closes his address with ' the following words : "We have tried to do our duty impar | tially, dilligeutly, wisely. For the means of carrying ou this vital work, which has ' grown up in our hands, keeping pace i with the growing immensity of the war, and which wc arc now about to lay down, after giving the American public an account of our stewardship, wc arc chiefly indebted to the money created by the fairs which American women inaugurated and conducted, and to the supplies col lected by you under our organization iTo you, then, is finally due the largest; | part of whatever gratitude belongs to the j | Sanitary Commission. It is as it should be. Tho soldier will return to his home to thank his own wife, mother, sister, i daughter, for so tenderly looking after him in camp and field, in hospital and j prison ; and thus it will bo seeu that it is the homes of the country which have wrought out this great salvation, and that tho men and women of America have an equal part in its glory and its joy." WHY CAMERON RESIGNED. —The Chi cago Republican gives a statement made by General Cameron to a friend, explain ing tlio cause of his resignation of the Secretaryship of War and subsequent short stay iu Russia, which at the time were thought to indicate a waDt of confi dence in Lim on tho part of the Admin | istration. It appears, however, from the present account, that tho contrary was the Caso, and that his withdrawal from office was very creditablo to him. The disaster to our arms iu -1801 seemed to render necessary the calling of General 1 McClellan to the command of the army, and he being able to dictate the tcruis of Lis acceptance, did not fail to use his 1 ; power, lie stipulated that lie should pass upon all appointments and promo tions, and the President and Gen. Cam eron felt compelled, fur the sake of the country and its safety, to accede to them, j Things went on from bad to worse, and j Gen. Camcrou said that it was necessary to break the agrecmout with McClellan, | even at the saciifice of his (the Sccrcta | ry's) own interests. Mr. Lincoln agreed with him in his view of the case, but thought it impossible to retract the terms pledged to McClellan. General Cameron replied, "1 will resign, and you can ap point another to my position." The President objected that it would ruin General Cameron politically, but tbe latter insisted, and it was finally agreed that tho resignation should take place— General Cameron to be sent toßussia as a mark of the coulidcDce of the American nation, aiul Mr. Stanton be appointed his successor, who would bo sure to clip the wings of the "Young Napoleon" as soon as possible. General Cameron did not want the Russian appoiutment, but took it for the cause above assigned, on tbe condition that lie might resign as soon as he chose. Mr. Stanton succeeded him, and if the foregoing statement be true, wc have an explanation of the coolness which was apparent between Stanton and McClellan from the first. The difficulty of punishing Jeff. Davis without making a martyr of him has occurred to every one, and some aro very much annoyed by it. To secure the punishment, and yet avcid martyrdom, the New York correspondent of tho Lon don Spectator baa bit upon tbo following plan : "Mr. Davis rnurt bo condemned to death, but were I President Johnson, 1 would neither pardon him and send him into exile, nor allow him to be hangod. If he wcic pardoned on condition of exile, he would merely lead a comfortable, per haps a luxurious life abroad, receiving much attention from certain pcopie. 11c must be conspicuously punished, and yet not made a martyr cither by his impris onment or his death. ! herefore, upon his condemnation I would reprieve his sentence indefinitely, on coudition that he gave his parole never to leave the country and to report himself once a month to the judicial or military officer of the Kcpublic, nearest to his place of residence, and once a year to the Presi dent of the United States. lTom any position of public trust he is of course cut oil. If necessary he should be com fortably supported at the expense of the nation, liis only punishment should be that of owing his life to the clemency of the Government lie sought to destroy, and the becomiug humiliation of publicly acknowledging its authority once a month while he lived. And such an example would be more instructive than a hang i£. Thus would Ido with the chief civil and military leaders of the rebellion.' Tlie Ouiiderberg. New York, July 23. —At nine o'clock this niorniDg the great iron-clad ocean frigate Dunderberg was launched. Not less than fifteen thousand people witnessed the spectacle. No accident occurred. It was found when she was in water that she drew ouly fifteen feet aft, nineteen feet midship, and nine feet forward —a draft much less than expected by many. The Dunderburg is the largest frigate in the world, and in six mouths she will be ready to make fifteen kcot3 per hour,and bid defiance to tho world. The Dunder berg is the embodiment ideal of the famous ship builder Webb. Her plan is original aud novel. She will be a floal ing fortification, ller casement, which is roomy, being perforated for twenty-oue guns. The sides are three feet in thick ness, ana iron clad four and a half inches. The ram is not fastened to the bow, but is the bow of the vessel itself. The New Hampshire Superior Court has decided that an express company delivering a parcel marked with the cab alistic "U. O. 1)." —collect on delivery— may allow a person to whom it is con signed reasonable tftho to open the pack age and determine whether he will re ceive it or not. The rule heretofore has been that no examination could lake place —the receiver must take the pack age aud determine whether it contained what he had ordered or not. This de cision of the court is both legal aud sen hle, which latter cannot be said of all legal decisions. The duly of placing the manacles upon Mrs. Surratt, escorting her to the gallows, and supporting her until the trap fell, devolved upon Lieutenant Colonel W. 11. 11. M'Call, of Lcwisburg, Pa. When placing the irons upon her wrists, she told him ho was no gentleman or he would not do so. Col. M'C. told her that it was his unpleasant duty, in obedi ence to orders and not his choice. Her parting salute to him was, "You are a scoundrel!" which were about the last audible words she uttered. Tlic story of the murder of of a woman and tlirco children, by three men, near Lcndou, and the subsequent killing of the three men by the husband and father, is pronounced an unmitigated hoax by the Madison County Union, published within four miles of the alleged scene of tho tragedy. There are evidences of dumcstic bliss in the following dispatch, sent by a Wall street broker to his wife; "Send John. Also demijohn. Kiss Matty. Spauk Arthur. Don't fret." John Morrisscy, the prize fighter, re ports an income of §00,7U0 last year, On the 17th proximo the Union State Convention wiil meet at llarrisburg to nominate a State ticket to be supported at the election in October. At this period the future policy of the republic must be looked to with tho greatest care by all loyal men. Questions of the deepest in terest agitato the national mind, particu larly in reference to the reorganization of the South, and it becomes the citizens of a great State like Pennsylvania to express their views in so unmistakable a manner that the Federal authorities, as well as the late rebels, will understand exactly tho position Pennsylvania occupies.— Every district in the Commonwealth should bo represented by able and loyal men, so that the deliberations and final action of tho body will bo worthy of the time and of the grave questions submit ted for consideration. La Pullicite , a newspaper published in Marseilles, alluding to the strike of the drivers and coachmen, speaks of another strike, still more serious iu its estimation —the strike of the bachelors. According to the account there given, six thousand youug men, between twenty aud forty years of age, held a large meet ing at a place called La Bcllcdi Mai, aud took tho oath never ta marry until a change should take place in the manners of the ladies. According to tho resolu tions passed on that occasion, ladies must give up their costly and ruinous dresses, stop playing the coquette, cease to aspire to the part of great ladies, abandon costly idleness, and return to the primitive and simple manuers of housekeepers. They must possess habits of economy, be mod est and motbcrlikc, and have all the vir tues of thoir sex. Sucli arc the condi tions of the bachelors strike. Mercantile Appraisement.
