Dublin, Oct. 13.—Apprehensions of another Fenian landing are subsiding. War vessels are to be withdrawn from the southern and eastern coast of Ireland, except one or two ironclads. Florence, Oct. 15.—The revolutionary bands which invaded the Roman Territory, concentrated at Frozone, under the leadership of Menotti Garibaldi. Later—Evening—A battle was fought near Frozone between the Garibaldians and the Pa pal troops. The former were victorious Strong detachments of Papal troops were seni' last week to prevent a junction of the bodies of revolutionists, but were unsuccessful, and were obliged to meet the united forces of the insurgents, under the personal leadership of Menotti. A desperate fight occurred outside ThePapalists were badly beaten, losing heavily in killed and wounded. The Garibaldians lost 5 killed and 15 wounded. Paris, Oct. 15.—It is reported that if the condition of affairs in Rome becomes critical, the Pope will take refuge in Bavaria. Cincinnati, Oct 13.—The Democrats held a meeting yesterday at Hamilton, Butler coun ty, and nominated Vallandighain for Senator. Vallandigham responded in a vigorous speech, expressing his determination to run, and is confident in the belief that he would be elected. New York, Oct. 15.—Advices from Gen. Mower state that the Convention of Louisiana is called by 10,000 majority The Herald's Richmond special says, the split in the Republican jjprty bas resulted in nominating two Republican tickets. The Con vention, perhaps will also have a Democratic ticket. Thad. Stevens declares his intention to in troduce a bill in Congress defining im peachable offenses, declaring that no officer impeached shall exercise power during trial ; also oue under authority of the Constitution, upon the principles of the Declaration of In dependence, that no State shall have the power to prohibit any citizen of the United States, whatever their race, color or religion, from voting for President and members of Congress. Leading Republicans think Congress will sus tain Stevens. The Philadelphia Post figures the House, Republibans, 54 ; Democrats, 46. Senate, Re publicans, 20 ; Democrats, 13. The Post's special says, the President author ized tho publication of the following statement: "Whoever shall be appointed Secretary of War will be appointed outright, rice Stanton removed, the President holding the Tenure Office bill unconstitutional, in which opinion Stanton concurred, himself preparing a por tion of the veto message denying the power ot Congress to pa a such an act by which the re moval of Stanton was adopted." The Presi dent will simply send a message nominating his successor, and should the Senate reject the nomination and endeavor to reinstate Stanton, the latter will be compelled to seek a legal remedy by a mandamus being served. The question of the constitutionality of the Tenure Office bill is before the Supreme Court. The suspension of Stanton was adopted—the first instance out of abundant caution, in order to bring the act within the terras of the Tenure Office hill, but the Puesident from the first in tended to make the removal absolute. The Times' special 6ays, several influential Democrats are urging the President in more direct accord with the Democrats, who alone can sustain him, annd suggest almost an entire change in the Cabinet. While Johnson listens to these propositions, no positive assurance of changes are made, except in the War Depart ment, though he may yield to the pressure and relieve three or four members before the meet ing of Congress. The President has summoned all the Dis trict Commanders to Washington. Schofield has not been gone. Pope and Ord are expect ed. Orders have not been sent through Grant, as required by law. Southern journals are unanimous in the opinion that the reconstruction policy will be modified, in consequence of the late election, and that negro suffrage will be left out. Sheridan has been granted two months leave of absence. Washington, Oct. 15.—At a Cabinet meet ing to discuss the appointment ot a permanent Secretary of War, Gen. Grant strongly urged Gen. Rawlings, his Chief of Staff, for the place The Republican special says Congressman Boutvvell is determined to prosecute impeach ment to the end. Other members of the Im peachment Committee express the same views. Florence, Oct. 15.—Midhight—Garibaldi issued another address from Cuprera, earnest ly urging the Italian people to arms. It is be lieved that Lamara, who is in command on the frontier, will occupy Pontifical territory and march on Rome. Turin, Oct. 15.—Mazzini issued a manifes to, exhorting the Irish patriots to rise aud pro claim the Republic. IiONDON, Oct. 15.—Wild rumors are afloat that the Fenians are plnnuing to seize the per son of Queen Victoria at Balmoral. Little .credence is given to the report, but precau tionary measures have been taken. The Bal moral household guard had been doubled. Florence, Oct. 16.—Latest advices say that the Papal forces are falling back to Rome. London, Oct. 16*-—Evening—The Fenian alarm is spreading. The government is in re ceipt of maiqi dispatches, announcing the pos sible plans of the Brotherhood. Troops and gunboats-are dispatched to Ireland. Extraor dinary vigilance is us-d in guarding the west era coast of England. Boston, Oct. 16.—Charles F.Dana, a mem ber of the Governor's Council, died of throat disease. London, Oct. 1&—»Jim Mace, tho pugilist, was arrested is bed last night and put under bonds to keep the peace. He was about to fight the Irish giant for tho champior.s'Jp. It is asserted that the pugilists will ernss into France or Ireland and fight. »Some are of the opinion that Mace sold the fight and was pur posely arrested. High Tariff. —Senator Grimes has pub lished a letter in which he reiterates his dec laration to the Chairman of the State Central Committee of Iowa, as follows : *■ In that letter I did express the opinion which I now reiterate, that when the question shall be fairly presented to the people of this State, they will be found overwhelmingly—the Republican party will be found overwhelmingly —against an increase of the present tariff, one which is the highest ever known in a civilized country. I cannot believe that the intelligent people of Iowa are quite willing to destroy their revenue from imports by a prohibitory tariff, (and that is what the advocates of the new tariff avowedly sought last Winter,) only to impose new and additional taxes upon their own domestic products to supply the defi ciency." Iowa is the strongest Radical State in the West, being largely settled from Massachu setts—a circumstance which renders Senator Grimes' declaration more emphatic. The Radicals of the West, however, seem to hate the South so bitterly that, sooner than act fairly, honorably, aud magnanimously, to wards that oppressed people, they will allow New England to impose a most crushing tariff' and taxation upon them to enrich herself. A Prediction Verified. —Over forty years ago, that great and pure statesman, John C. Calhoun, predicted that, in- case the Aboli tionists obtained control ol the Government,, the very condition of things which now nearly prevail in the South would ensue. His words were exactly as follows : "The blacks and the profligate whites that might unite with them, would become the principal recipients of the-Federal offices and patronage, and would in consequence be raised above the whites of the South in the political and social scale. We would, in a word, change conditions with them, a degradation greater than has yet fallen to the lot of a free and en lightened people, and one from which we could not escape,, should emancipation take place (which it certainly will if not prevented,) but by fleeing the homes of ourselveR and our an cestors, and by abandoning our country to our former slaves, to become the permanent abode of disorder, anarchy, poverty, misery and wretchedness." The American Baruere.— Cruelty be came with him, first a habit, then a passion, at last a madness. * * * He tasted blood, and felt no loathing ; tasted it again and liked it well. * * - He had brought himself to look upon the de spair and misery of hi« fellow-creatures with a glee resembling that of the fiends whom Dante saw watching the pool of seething pitch. * # " * * * He had many associates in guilt, but he dis tinguished himself from them by the bacchan alian exultation which he seemed to feel iu tho work of death. Macauley wrote the above of the atrocious Barere, of the French revolution. The lan guage equally well fits Stanton, the chief butch er of America. Sour Grapes, —The Sacramento Union says : "Ger>. Bidwell is making vinegar of his grapes this year." Likely enough this is be cause the Radical Convention made sour grapes of his aspirations for tho Governorship, and the people soured them 6till more in de feating his chances for, the U. S. Senate. No doubt the General'has plenty of vinegar stuff about him now. The Leavenworth Commercial of Septem- ber 29th, thus discusses the suffrage question : Negro suffrage was rampant last night, on the corner of Fourth and Cherokee streets, in the shape of half a dozen dusky brethren and sistern having a "conversation wid their fists." And the colored troops fought nobly. --- Rich Poverty.— A New York City paper has the following item : ' Mrs. Abraham Lincoln, owing to the in- adequacy of her income, has been obliged to offer for sale some forty-five thousand dollars worth of jewels and dresses. Mr. M. H. Bra- dy, No. 609 Broadway, has the articles, for sale. ---- - »♦< - f, A characteristic anecdote is related of aa out-at-tho-efbow poet, who, by some freak of fortune, came into possession of a five dol lar bill. He called to a lad and said, "Bobby, my boy, take William and get him changed." " What do you mean by calling it William ? " inquired the wondering Had. "Why, Bobby," replied the poet, "I am not sufficiently familiar with it to take the liberty of calling it Bill.'' A Two-Headed Snake was captured near Bethlehem, Ky-, a few weeks ago. It was ten inches in length, and though the h?ads were distinct, there was but one vetebrae and one pelvis. There were two eyes in each head, and each mouth had the same appearance and size. Sometimes it would dart out one tongue and then the other, and at times both simulta neously. The heads each turned from the body at the same degree, which preveufced the snake from making much speed in tbo grass, a3 it would get between its heads. Some wag. in England hit off the salvage mania there a few years ago by issuing a pros pectus for a joint stock company to drain tho Red Sea, to recenser the valuables the Egyp tians lost when Pharoah and his host were overwhelmed by the waters in their pursuit of the Children of Israel.
