Stealisg Cattle Beyond the Lines.—
On Saturday night last, the pen of J. W.
Sherman, in Effingham county, was broken
into and four head of cattle stolen. The
crime was committed by three negroes, who
also robbed other fanners as they drove to
the city. These negroes are granted passes
to go buyoud the lines to purchase and drive
in cattle to supply the market, but instead of
paying for the property, as they are suppos
ed to do, they rob, steal and plunder the
poor farmers. ,

The Meeting of Citizens To-Day.— The
nass-meeting to-day, to express the senti
ments of the people of Savannah, in regard !
the recent sad events in Wellington, was \
1 sensible gatlievimr. It was not an occasion '
ror rhetorical liarangues, but for merely a
solemn and sincere delaration of disapproval
of the wicked deeds which have disgraced its
authors, whoever they may be, in the eyes
of all civilization. The Mayor's remarks
were brief, but to the point, the resolutions
were weli-toned and all the better for their
conciseness and absence of verbiage. We shall
publish to-morrow morning a full report of
the speech and resolutions.

The following is a digest of the war news

New York, April 15, 1865.
The Herald’s Goldsboro’ says
Sherman’s array commenced its advance on
the 9th, moving in three columns, under
Howard, Slocum and Schofield. During the
rejoicings over the news from Richmond,
Gen. Sherman was called out by his troops,
and he addressed a few words to them say
ing lie was informed that Richmond had
been captured, and Lee was flying in dismay.
He said Grant wrote to him that he was pur
suing Lee, and he hoped he, (Sherman)
would press Johnston, which said Sherman
I think we ll do. The soldiers cried “we
will—we will.” Sherman told the soldiers
that he did not mean to let Johnstou have
any rest. Johnson has evacuated Raleigh,
moving west, and leaving the town in pos
session of Hampton’s Cavalry. On the even
ing of the 16th, a small force of Howard s
Mounted Infantry were attacked by some
Rebel Cavalry, who, however, were soon dis
persed, with a loss of one hundred men, and
two pieces of artillery.
A Rebel despatch, dated Augusta, April
sth, indicates that Alabama is overrun by
Union cavalry under Wilson and other com
manders, all moving toward Mobile. Gen.
McCook’s force is reported to have burnt
Red Mountain Iron Works and the village of
Eloton, and tapped the telegraph at various
places, sending despatches to Rebel officers.
Two columns of Yankees were also reported
advancing upon Columbus, Mississippi.—
The same despatch says the ‘ Rebel steamer
Gertrude, with a cargo valued at two mil
lions dollars, was sunk in Spanish river, near
Mobile, on the 31st, by a collision with the

sacked and fired by a mob of the town

A Nevj;g ILLIAKD Star.—From the follow

York Times, it appears that anew French
gentleman has come over to astound us by a
repetition, or by even an eclipse of the won
derful feats pei formed by M. Berger, three
Yesterday afternoon, at the Billiard manu
factory of Messrs. Phelan & Collender, Mons
Pierre Carme, the great French billiard
player, whose arrival was announced in the
Times of Tuesday, gave an exhibition of his
woudrous skill, in the presence of a select
audience, including representatives from the
principal daily and weekly newspapers, aud
several of our most influential citizens.
The hour announced for opening the ex
hibition was 4 o’olock; but, at the urgent
solicitation of gentlemen who, in their an
xiety to witness his performance, had arriv
ed before tbe proper hour, M. Carme com
menced at about 3 o'clock. The feature of.
the entertainment was the execution of the
different varieties of the masse, and the bold
ness, brilliancy and originality of the artist
was a theme of unbounded praise. During
the first hour, particularly, M. Carme’s efforts
surpassed even expectation, and the accu
racy with which he consummated the most
i difficult problems, drew forth the most flat
j tering encomiums from such of the speeta
| tors as, having seen that other wonderful
player, M. Claudius Berger, had come pre
pared to measure the new comer by that
! high staudard. Although the exhibition was
j an impromptu affair, conceived and carried
out in a few hours, and notwithstanding,
also, that M. Carme played upou a table of
inferior size to that with which lie is fami
liar, and in a building where the movement
of machinery was a source of continual jar
ring, it gave eminent satisfaction to all who
participated in it, and conclusive proof that
the Erench expert is all that bad previously
been claimed for him—a player daring in
conception, and brilliant and accurate in
execution. He exhibited, altogether, about
thirty differed strokes, the majority of w hich
were novel and striking in the extreme It
; is his intention to give a moderate number
of exhibitions in several of the piominent
j cities : the first two of which will take place
at the Hall of the Cooper Union on the even
ings of Tuesday und Wednesday, the Uth
and 12th of April. Daring the ’succeeding
week he will appear in Boston.

HOVBRNOR BROWN’S VIEWS.
[From the Augusta Chrouicle aud Sentinel.]
The Governor’s opposition to the pojicy of
Mr. Davis may be better understood from his
message to the Georgia Legislature. He
therein urges the repeal of the conscript law,
and opposes the enlistment of negro soldiers.
The former law he regarded as an admitted
failure, and the latter as a most hazardous
experiment. And yet, while he disapproved
of the conscript law, he acquiesced in its en
forcement, and facilitated its execution ac
cording to the letter and spirit of the con
gressional enactment. As regards the negro
soldier questiou, who is wise enough to fore
see with certainly its practical results, and
who cun confidently assert that it will not
prove the grave of our liberty aud the ruin
of our independence. But he has also de
nouuced the suspension of the writ of habeas
corpus as a needless infringment of the liber
ty of the people. For this offence he is ac
cused of tavoring sedition, and conniving at
treason. Queer logic this, as though it was
compatible with his sworn obligations to sit
still and tamely suffer the dearest right of
freemen to be wrested front them, lest he
might be accused of disaffection to the cause
of the country.
Another portion of tj]£ message which has
given great offence, is that which relates to
the iailure of peace negotiations and the
calling of a Sovereign Convention for mutual
consultation on the affairs of the nation. He
does not believe that an honest effort has yet
been made for the adjustment of our difficul
ties aud differences with the North, and that
which he believes he has the boldness to
speak. He thinks, too, that the time has ar
rived when the aid of diplomacy must be in
voked to second the efforts of the sword and
bayonet. Statesmanship, no less than gen
eralship, has a part to play in this bloody
drama. Despairing of any settlement that
will be honorable and permanent without the
intervention of the States, he desires to en
gage them in an effort to restore quietness to
Gov. Brown is of the opinion, as he states
in his special message—which is explanatory
of liis general message on this point—that a
convention will be demanded by the people,
and he deemed the present time a most fa
vorable period for such an assemblage. If
no other good was attainable, it would at
least unite the people and remove those
canses of dissension which were known to
exist. Mr. Hill, however, is afraid to en
trust the people with the keeping of their
own honor and the direction of their own
destiny; and accordingly sees in the proposed
convention nothing less than re-construction.
He is evidently haunted by the ghost of the
old Union, and no measure he thinks will ap
pease its manes and lay it quietly to rest in
the “tomb of the Capulets ’ hut the immola
tion of Tombs and Stevens, and the hanging
and quartering of Joe Brown according to
the law of treason as expounded by a drum
head court martial.
Gov. Brown has devoted his political life
to the maintenance of the identical princi
pals on which our Government is founded.
He may therefore be safely trusted at all
times. And as anciently a Roman citizen,
who had been thrice honored with the Con
sulate, was looked upon as above reproach,
with the Chief Magistracy of his own State
as Gov. Brown, may safely despise the co
lumnies and criticisms of such an enemy as
Benjamin H. Hill, although he may be
clothed with Senatorial robes.
A person asking a wit if the tolling of the
bell did not remind him of his latter end, wag
answered, “No; but the rope puts me in
mind of yonrs.’’
In a prison in Paris the juvenile vagrants
and young thieves are organized on a mili
tary plan, the well-behaved being raised to
the rank of corporals and sergeants. They
are also taught a trade, and recently tjip
study of music hShoeefo introduced. ■
