SAVANNAH. THURSDAY, APRIL 13, ISCS.
out DISTINGUISHED VISITORS.
The steamers Delaware and Nemaha yes
terday brought to our city another crowd of
distinguished guests, being the second party
who have taken Savannah in their way
while going the rounds of the captured cities
of the South, within a few weeks. We ap
pend in another column a full list of the pas
sengers by the Aragn, most of whom were
our invited guests who called at Savannnh
for a few hours yesterday.
It was a matter of much regret to very
litany that the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher
was not of the part}' who came on the
steamer yesterday to see this, the loveliest
city of the South. But the fatigue of his
recent work, the excitement of*the voyage,
and the absolute necessity of pre
paring for Lis oratorical effort of Friday next,
were three most potent reasons which de
trained him to remain quiet at Port Royal
lbr the day.
Though we have lost something in not see
ing him here, in our city, the whole country,
and we of course with it, have unquestiona
bly gained much more in the increased vigor
ot his to-morrow’s discourse, which, on so
grauckan occasion, we would not see enerva
ted or weakened iu the slightest degree by
any extraneous unnecessary exertion.
Neither did the Secretary of War make
liis appearance. He is jast at this time pro
bably too much occupied with his little ar
rangement for the taking, capturing, bag
ging, captivating, comprehending, securing,
smashing, or otherwise disposing effectually
of Lee’s Army to have leisure for aught
Those who did come, having but a short
time, at once took carriages and pro
ceeded, under the guardianship of certain of
our citizens, to visit such points of interest
in the city as offer special attractions to
The ladies of the party were, many of them,
present .'dwith beautiful bouquets culled from
the finest gvrdensof the city,and they express
el themselves t most delighted at seeing
Orange blossoms,C ameiias, Roses. Jessamine,
Labernum, Myrtle. Star of Bethlehem, Pride of
ndia,Flowering (honey,) Locust, Violets, Fleur
de Lis, Verbenas, etc, now in foil bloom in
the open air. while in the bleaker North
from which ihe_» have juss cctse. t&e vtry,
earliest flowers have but jmss ~ --q peep
above the frozen ground.
Many of the most beaatr'n ±mi varied
bouquets came h orn :he fine garden of Mrs.
Marshall, corner South Broad and West
Broad streets, whose gardener, Mr. Richard
Thomas, adds to the actual experience of
thirty years, as a practical worker, that
scientific knowledge of ali technicalities of
his business, and that generous courtesy
which are almost always to be found com
bined in the thorough floriculturist.
Our distinguished guests, several of whom
honored the Herald office with a visit, ex
pressed themselves delighted with their short
stay in Savannah, while the greatest regret
of our citizens and our humble selves was
that they did not stay long enough to let us
show what we really can do, iu the way of
Perhaps not the least noticeable feature of
the affair was the fact that the celebrated old
England abolitionist, George Thompson, and
the no less celebrated New England aboli
tionist, .V illiam Lloyd Garrison, were both
of the party.
The distinguished guests were greeted by
the stirring strains of the National airs from
the fine band of the Ninth Connecticut Red
meut. The band of the 12th Maine Regi
ment also lent their grateful musical aid to
give a welcome to our visitors. On their de
parture, they were again complimented with
music, while the guns of the war-steamer
pealed forth their thunderous salute to bid
the welcome visitors “God Speed" upon their
way. Every heart beat in earnest sympa
thy with the errand they have to do. to raise
again in triumph the striped and starry fla<*
oyer the spot, where, for the first, time in iis
history, it was desecrated, insulted and trail
ed to the earth.
The Northern Press was represented by the
following named gentlemen : Mr. Oscar G
Sawyer, New York Herald; Mr. H. J. Wiri
ser, New York Times ; Mr. Theodore Til
ton, New York Independent; T. J. Ellin
wojd. New York Independent; Mr. F. W.
Ballard, Boston Traveller; 11. W. Smith
New York Commercial Advertiser, and
others whose names, in the hurry of meet
ing old friends, we have forgotten.
How toe Folks Fooled Themselves
The general interest to see the Lev Henry
Ward Beecher yesterday, was so great, that
a rather sanctimonious looking correspondent
of a Northern paper, who came with the
other distinguished gentlemen on the steam
boat, was perpetually, wherever he went
during the few hours he staid here, mistaken
for Mr. Beecher. As it so chanced thiU the
Rev. gentleman did not come at ali our
pious-visaged friend took “all the honors ”
* IC will be breaking no confidence
if we state that the initals of his name are
Henry J.Winscr, and that his city abode is
In the New York Times 'office. We leave
him and Mr. Beecher to decide w hich is
either, has been insulted. Go in Beecher—
Hooray for Winser. We bet on both
Savannah TBtAT«i:.~The bill of last eve
ning comprised “The Drunkard,’” and “Na
ture and Philosophy.” Mr. Weir’s persona
tion of “Edward Middleton” was thrilling
and powerful, and made a deep impression.
This talented actor takes a benefit on Friday
evening, and the lovers of good acting will
not fail to turn out in full numbers. The
farce ot “The Youth who never saw a
Woman,” concluded the bill, and the genius of
the accomplished actresses Miss La Fond
and Mrs. Berrell, sufficed to make the piece
pass off agreeably, despite the great disad
vantages under which they evidently labored.
To-night the “Six Degrees of Crime,” iu
which Mr. A. H. Davenpoit repeats his great
personation of “Julio Dormilly,’ s and the
glorious farce of the “Rendezvons.”
Sweatnam’s Varieties.— Last evening the
entertainment at this house was of a rather
unusual character, for the reason that a lead
ing male character was personated by one
ot the ladies of the Company; who, by way
of displaying her unquestioned versatility,
appeared afterward in a Fancy Dance, and
it! a song; which song, by the way, was
more of a dramatic inteilude than a mere
song, as it is sung in full characteristic dress,
and is accompanied with appropriate pan
The lady we refer to is “La Belle Louise,”
who, iu the ‘‘Seven Clerks,” enacted the part
of the young lover “Adolph de Briancourt, ’’
and who after captivating her audience by
iter graceful excellence in a fancy dance,
once again came forth as “The Dashing
AN bite Sergeant,” a pautomimico-dramatieo
ntusico sort of semi-song-henri recitation,
and wholly funny performance, which we
can characterize in no more appropriate
manner, but which was entirely enjoyable.
Ihe other performers w r ere as excellent as
we have learned to see them, and all their
efforts were received by the audience with
much laughter, and with applause.

MATTERS IN RICHMOND.
Another interesting despatch from our cor
respondent in Richmond appears in this
morning’s Herald- Two lately prominent
rebels Judge Campbell and* Mr. Myers
have been admitted to audiences by Presi
dent Lincoln for the purpose, as supposed
°t, laying before him propositions tor the
submission ot the rebel chiefs; bqt the re
public inferences cannot yet be made
The President’s second visit to Richmond
was received with wild enthusiasm both by
the white and black population. It is stated
that the evacuation of the city by the rebels
regarding which the citizens were Winded bv
|l» being died merely a “remoS," ,'lj
betas gome on for a month previous in "iVe
tmal abandonment. The specie ol' the Rich
mond banks, as well as that of the Louisiana
banks, which was also stored there, was not
removed till last Sunday mornining, when it
was hurriedly sent off on the Danville rai’.
All immense number of rebel liond* regis
tered anu signed, were thrown into the
streets after the grand scramble of the
conspirators on Sunday afternoon to
escape Irom the wrath to come” and were
left lying there for any one to pick no who
thought them worth the trouble. The Rich
mondites are bewildered by the astonished
good fortune which has befallen them in
plentiful supplies of provisions and marvel

HENRY WARD BEECHER PLEADS PARDOV
FOR THE REBELS AYD JEFF DAVIS.
He Is Opposed to Expatriation, Disfranchise*
ment and the Sonr Apple Tree.
THE HUSSION TO FT. SUMTER.
The Rev. Henry Ward Beecher’s valedic
tory to his congregation at Plymouth church
ou Wednesday evening, prior' to his depart
ure for Fort Sumter, w'as a remarkable ad
dress, and must have been received with
astonishment by some of his fiock.
He commenced his discourse by stating
that in the Book of Judges there was a most
interesting and instructive narrativeAu
old Levite, w’hile travelling, found on rising
in the morning that his wife had been beaten
to death. Taking her bleeding corpse to his
dwelling, he cut it into twelve pieces, and
sent one to every tribe in Israel. Asking the
meaning of this insult, the Israelites were
told that iu the tribe of Benjamin dwelt the
murderers. The tribe w r as asked to give up
the culprits, -but impudently refused. Then
the other tribes, ordered by the Lord, fell
upon them and destroyed them almost entire
ly, save only a thousand, who fled and hid
in the caves. The point to which
I wish to call attention is to the situation
presented by the tribe of Beujam
when cut off by the vengeance of their breth
ren. They were so "despoiled and impoverish
ed. and so pitiable in their distress, as to ex
cite the compassion of their destroyers. The
people then went up to the house of the
Lord and asked why it w’as that one tribe yet
was wanting to the house of Israel; then
went they to the men who had fled, and gave
them wives, that they might raise up seed to
the restored tribe. The offence was as great
a one as could have been committed, and
was punished in after expatriation. The
tribes of Israel obeyed the Lord and destroy
ed the tribe of Benjamin, all but one thou
sand men ; and then grief overtook them aud
they prayed as above. They, felt that the
tribal allotment was a holy one, and they
felt that without Benjamin, Israel was not as
it was of old. AVe have come together in
circumstances like it in our time. AVc lament
and moan before God that a tribe should be
so near extinguishment. So long as it was
necessai y, our leaders had this one paramount
duty before them—to maintain the supremacy
of the government* But from the moment
ot victory anew feeling came upon them and
they yearned for their brethren. It is some
time since I have felt troubled concerning
the government, For over a year—ever since
Grant, and Sherman took command—it has
seemed but a question of time. There have
been days and weeks of doubt, but they were
exceptions. No one i9 now so faint-hearted
as to doubt that the end is near. The fall of
‘Petersburg and Richmond, the position of
Grant, -and the flight of Lee settle the ques
tion beyond a doubt. The day of bulletins
is passed. The cruel,- broad, dreadful war
■which has populated the dark region beyond
with the murdered and the slain is now end
ing. It is the agony of death now,
and we rejoice in it. Our work has just
begun. We have urged the people of the
North to stiffen theii backbone and to keep
up their moral tone, and we have done our
duty. That such a man should be elected
as has reassumed the Presidential chair is a
magnificent result. But now we have the
country, and the whole country, in our
hands. We have fought for it, and we are
responsible for it. I have taught you to be
lieve that the whole Union was indispensa
ble to the honor of the country. We did
not care to see the North prosperous and
great and wealthy, and the Soutli feeble aud
impoverished and weakened by excesses
We are bondsmen for the welfare and pros
perity of the countiy—not of New England
or any other section. The exigencies of our
country requires us to do a thousand fold
more than ever before; and first let us take
care that we do not fall into the east' sin of
vengeance under the plea of justice. Few
men can afford to be just until they first
learn how to love. I hear many men say
this war ought not to be ended until the
principal traitors are hung, and that a sour
apple tree should take the place of Hainan’s
gallows upon which should swing the arch
traitor Jeff. Davis. If Mr. Davis was fiiy
lawful prey to-night I would do by him as‘l
did with another wasp yesterday. * I saw the
fellow on my door in the country, an l was
just about to smash him, when I said
“AVhat s the use ? it’s on)y a wasp, and it’s
not at all probable that he and I will meet
again, so I’ll let him go.” Tjiat’s what I’d
do with Jeff. Davis. Let him go away where
he’ll be i>y himself, powerless to injure us
and of no particular account to anybody
else. Aud if I had my way after the close
of fighting I would not let one drop of blood
be spilled, and then I could say to the world
that this great civil war has been
ended as none other ever was. Ought
there not to be an exhibition of law
and justice?—ought there not tq be
a terrible spectacle of retribution ? say some
Iu mercy’s name lias there not been suffering
enough? Is not the penalty already paid?
God’s vengeance patent enough ? We don’t
want any more vengeance. 1 would not ex
patriate any leaders on the ground of ven
geance, for as they have once misled the
people they might do sp again. I W ould not
expatriate and. disfranchise them. I don’t
know as you will go with me or endorse me
in this view. I urn, however, consistent,
having never urged* the slightest shedding of
blood save when it was necessary to establish
the supremacy of the government. Aud
more: we wish now to show' the South their
total misapprehension of our former senti
ments. Their cunning politicians haye made
believe that we hate them; but wo
don’t- Tell me why a man living jn South
Carolina or Georgia should be more antago
nistic .than one in the AVest. It was tned
during the late election to stir up a feelin -of
distrust and jealousy; but it couldn’t be done.
Tkere are no antagonistic interests between
the North and the South. Religion, blood
business are the same; and if there are no
social or political reasons sos hatred, why
Should we not bp the bust of blends? But
next, we must qot undertake to re-establish
the South just as she was. A hundred years
will not put Virginia w'l;p*e she was. You
can repair property, but if you sweep off a
generation ol men you canqot replace that in
a generation. Westchester county has not
got pver the result of the Revolutionary war
U> this day, and it is even worse at the South.
Emigration cannot doit. I supposj there
are whole regions in the South where the en
tire male population is entirely cut off. Along
the seaboard we caa give essential relief, but
all along the route .of Sherman's -army
the description given by the nro
phet is eminently applicable: “Be*
f .re him was the garden of Eden, and
behind him w;as the desert. ’ f We can send
our sons and daughters—our wealth, our
prayers, and sympathies must go forth in
the missionary work of teaching and resusci
titing. We have a great field in our own
ueloved land, greater than any in Africa,
and we should enter in and begin to labor,
and as the church has had its proper share
in inspiring the times, the success, and the
army, so God calls us to go on with the
other part, so much more graceful to the
Christian. I trust it is in this spirit that you
send me away. I would go in no other. I
would be no man’s servant to be the man to
go down among them, aud when they are
burying their dead to taunt them ; and when
that shining old flag is again thrown forth,
God forbid that I should call their attention
to it as the standard of those who have con
quered them. It is the flag of their fathers ;
its glories are theirs and memories theiis,
and not henceforth the banner of their ene
mies. In that crumbling pulpit of Charles
ton harbor I am your minister, to say to
them there is nothing now between us and
you ; we are brethren and Christian breth
ren ; we love you, and desire your regard to
return ; on such a mission as that I will go
forth most cheerfully. The day on which
the old flag is to be raised is Good Friday,
on which occurred the resurrection of the
Saviour; and, as Christ was raised to bring
life and liberty into the world, so will that
flag cany renewed life and true liberty to
the South. And as Plymouth church has
been known as an anti-slavery church, let
your record be hereafter national fraternity
and national benevolence; and I know it
will be. Iu your future days you will go all
aiound the world in your Christian work, as
m your earlier days you devoted your time
aud efforts to the one special med of the
day and the country.
