FROM OUR EVENING EDITION
Arrest of G. B. Lamar. —Mr. G. B. La
mar left Savannah this morn in? on the U. S.
Revenue steamer Nemaha, under arrest, lie
was in charge of Brig. Gen. Jefferies, and
will be taken directfto New York by steamer
Lamar was formerly a prominent citizen
ofNew York city, and is said to have beta
the boon companion and political associate
of Ben and Fernando Wood. He was for a
long time President of the Bank of the Re
public ofNew York, and left that position to
take the presidency of the Bank of Commerce
of this city, about a year before the breaking
out of the Rebellion.
Arrived in Savaunah he played a promi
nent part in the efforts then making to bring
about the Rebellion, and took a leading pos
ition among the principal secessionists of
this State. Lamar at one time filled the
office of Paymaster of Georgia troops, and
was ever a conspicuous agent of the Confed
eracy and an active enemy of the National
• He is the owner of a large amount of
property iu cotton and real estate in this 'city
and in Augusta, Macou, and throughout the
State, a great portion of his wealth having
been acquired in the blockade-running trade,
and is an eminently proper object lor the
notice of the authorities.
Mr. Weir’s Benefit.— -The following note
from Mr. Thomas Weir, in response to the
letter tendering him a complimentary bene
fit, published yesterday, has been handed to
ub for publication:
Savannah, April 29, 1865.
Li. Col. Robt. P. York, and others:
Gentlemen Permit me to return to you
my sincere thanks for your consideration and
kindness in tendering me a Complimentary
Benefit. It gives me pleasure to be able to
announce Monday evening, ay the Savannah
Theatre, as the time and place for my Benefit.
I remain, Gentlemen,
Very truly, your ob’t servant.
Ora House, the public will be rejoiced l/'
learn, is to be opened next week, not only
with all its former excellence of accomoda
tion and entertainment, but with many im
provements added. Meals will be served up
at. all hours, and a superior stock of ales,
wines and segars kept constantly on
band. Mr. Ilersey and his popular estab
lishment are too well known to need recom
mendation in this city.
Narrow Escape of Gen. Granger.—A
correspondent of the Boston Advertiser, de
scribing the movements against Mobile
Wbil& reconnoitcring the enemy’s position
this afternoon, General Granger, accompani
ed by his staff and your correspondent, rode
along the turnpike leading toward the bay;
a bridge was crossed by the entire party, on
either side of which, It afterwards appeared,
a number of torpedoes had been buried in the
sand, just where a horse or wagon would be
likely to run over and explode them. Not
more thau tweuty minutes after we had
crossed a single horseman attempted to cross,
and almost in our very footsteps, exploded
one of those terrible and invisible engines
of destruction. Bursting with a report like a
cannon,it killed the horse and threw the rider
some distance, but fortunately not' injuring
him seriously. A few moments after, how
ever,one of the-men belonging to Gen. Grang
er’s escort was riding along some eighty or one
hundred yards from the scene of the last
explosion, when another was struck by
his horse’s hoofs, and exploded, tearing the
horse fearfully, and wounding the ricler in
the, ankle; aud more singular yet, General
Granger and the entire party accompanying
him returned across this bridge, and while
yet but a few yards across on the other side,
the soldiers discovered and hauled out of the
ground another, and another, and another,
almost under the very hoofs of the horses of
the General and his Staff, Is it not almost a
miracle that the General was not killed ?
Hormcb Poisoned.— On Thursday, Friday
and Saturday of last week, Messi-3. C. W.
Dennis &Cos., of Merchants’Row. lost three
fine draught horses. The mysterious manner
in which, they died leads to the belief that
they were poisoned, but by whom or for
what purpose cannot be conjectured. They
were worth, together, a thousand or two of
dollars, as it Is extremely difficult to get good
horses here. The matter will be fully inves
tigated and we sincerely hope the cruel ras
cal who did the deed may be brought to
condign punishment.— Port Royal New South
Mr. Edwin Booth. —Edwin Booth, the
brother of the alleged assassin, is a devotedly
loyal man. A few weekssince he saved the life
ot the President’s son Robert, who, but for
mm would have lalleu beneath the cal's while
in motion. In some Way the incident came
to t.ie knowledge of Lieut. Gen. Grant, who
at once wrote a civil letter to Mr. Edwin
Booth, and said if he could serve him at any
time he would be glad to do so. Mr. Booth
replied, playtully, that when he (Grant) was
m Ricumond, he would like to play for him
there. &prtng*itld Rr/mbtictin, April lß.
j The interview between Generali Grant and
Lee was marked by great urbanity, the two
chiefs being as gentlemanly as were Michael
uad Satan, when, as the political reporter of
their meeting states,
••Between his Darkness and his Brightness
There passed a mutual glance of great politeness."
Fitz-Greene Hallack is on a visit to New
York, and Is as lively as a man of thirty. Re
is at 70 as choice a specimen of winter-green
as you could find amid the snows of life.
OSKKKAb BIItUMDE OX PRESIDENT
tFHRn the N. T. Sunday Herald.]
At thres o'clock on Saturday Gen. Burn
side was noticed by a large coucourse who
assembled in front of the Post Office, and he
was immediately surrounded and called 'on
for a speech. In response, the General ad
dressed the crowd from the steps of one
of the buildings. He said : “ I feel too much
grieved, my friends, to express any lengthy
remarks on this sad occasion. lam too
much overcome by my own feelings to do
justice to the memory of our late good and
talented President, and I will nor, attempt
the task. It is our duty ahd the duty of the
country now to support his successor, Andrew
Johnson—[applause I—and lam glad to be
able to say that he is worthy of the support
of the people. I have had abundant opportu
nities to know his character, for I have
been in consultation with him at all hours of
the day and night, w ben I had charge of
the Department of Ohio ; and I have been
enabled to discern his course minutely on all
matters which required his judgment and
atteution. Having had these opportunities,
I can say to you that he has acted at all
times with ability, zeal and discretion. I tell
you, geutlemeu, that I have never seen
him under its influence. If it were other
wise, I would have discovered it, loi I have
been continually with him. There
were moments when I could have, if
possible, read the thoughts of
his soul; and I can truly say, after having
enjoyed the most intimate relations with him,
that he is worthy of your confidence. I be
lieve the indiscretion with which he has
charged on the 4th of March can be explain
ed away. Let him who is without sin cast
a stone at him. Let the nation, then, sup
port him as their President. (Applause.)
That becomes the duty of all of us.’ Let
us staud by him, and strengthen his hands
and the hands of the Government. My
friends, conduct yourselves as becomes tite
da}'. Let not the wrong you and the nation
have suffered impel you to commit vio
lence of any kind on any oue. If
there are men living among us who are ene
mies to the Government, or who have proved
faithless in the hour when the country need
ed their sympathy, do not molest them; leave
them to the fate which will assuredly-follow
them when they commit acts of disloyalty.
The course before us all in this hour is plaiu.
Let us rally round our President—(cheers
for Johnson)—let us support him and do our
whole duty to the country by aiding the
Government in the great work before it.
We are called on to mourn the death
of our President. I think he had talent
and patriotism above any man of the age; I
know he deserves the sincere regret of every
man, and I can also say that in hi 9 untimely
end the South have lost, their best friend.
(Cries of “That’s so,” and applause.) Ido
not say, though, that you or the Govern
ment should change your policy or mode of
dealing with the South. We must all ask
God to guide us in the hour of tributation.
But our first duly is to support the Govern
ment and otir new President, Andrew John
The General then retired,’the crowd cheer
ing him for several minutes.
No Escape for Booth. —The apprehension
of J. Wilkes Booth, the of Presi
dent Lincoln, will take place sooner or later.
There is no hiding place for him on the face
of the broad earth ; and his only refuge will
be the grave. Thanks to the vanity of the
wretch, he has, in liis abortive effoiis to ac
quire fame, exhibited his somewhat striking
visage on every stage in America, aud has
had himself daguerreotyped and photograph
ed oftener than be has said his prayers". Pro
bably most policemen in this country have
seen him, aud every one in the two liemis
pheres will he furnished with an accurate
likeness, accompanied with the assurance of
an immense reward, in the event of his cap
ture. He has written a great tragedy in let
ters of blood, but the last act will be added
by the common hangman.
It would be a lamentable mistake to kill
the villain at sight. He has no claim to an
easy death; but his agony should be “ long
drawn out,” through the process of trial,
conviction, sentence, and, after weeks of con
templation of the gallows, execution with
the assurance from the hangman that liis
body was be delivered to the surgeous for
dissection. He should have no sepulture.—
Whatever fearful circumstance which is com
patible with an execution among Christian
nations should be added iu order to heighten
the agony of expectation, and to bow his
proud and guilty spirit. No humane man
should object to applying such mental tor
tures to such a wretch, since they may be
necessary to bring him to a consciousness of
his guilt, and probably to a full confession.
Iu vain will Booth take refuge in any for
eign country. No nation of the earth would
be guilty oftheincivism of extending him as
a refugee its hospitality. He has the mark
of Cain upon his forehead, and wherever he
may go he will feel that he is surrounded
by spies. The magnitude of his crime will
turn the whole world into a police in his
imagination, aud the greatness of the re
ward offered tor his apprehension will cause
his accomplices to betray him. There need
be no fear that Booth will go unpunished.
His doom is sealed already. Jf he should
escape into the rebel lices, it will only serve
mm for a few months, and may lie the
means of of implicating Davis and' his Gov
ernment.— Wash. Chronicle.
Another Incident of the Assassination.—
Sergeant J. M. Dye, Battery C, Pennsyl
vania Independent Artillery, stationed at
Camp Berry, Washington City, in a private
letter of the 15th inst., to his father, 8. 8.
Dye, of No. 100 Broadway, gives the follow -
ing account of the conduct of Booth imme
diately before the assassination, which proves
that he had a confederate ou the ground, ac
tively co-operating in liis preparations for
the bloody work. It seems that they ex
pected the President to leave the house at
the close of the second act, and meant to
have assassinated him between the door and
Washington, D. C., April 16, 1855. Dear
Father: With sorrow 1 pen these lines. The
death of President Lincoln has deeply af
fected me. And why should’nt it, when I
might have saved his precious life ?
"I was standing iu front of the theatre
when the two assassins.were conversing. I
heard part of their conversation. It was not
sufficiently plain for an outsider to under
stand the true meaning of it. yet it apprised
Sergeant Cooper and myself that they were
anxious that the President should come out
to his carriage, which was standing just be
hind us. The second act would soon end,
and they expected he would come out then.
1 stood awhile between them and the car
rlage, with my revolver ready, for I began to
suspect them. The act ended, but the Presi
dent did not appear, 80 Booth went into a
restaurant and took a drink, then came out
and went into the alley where his horse was
then standing, though I did not know that
any horse wa9 there. He came back and
whispered to the other rascal, then stepped
into the theatre. There was at this time two
police officers standing by them. I was in
vited by my friend Cooper to have some oys
ters, and we went into a saloon around the
corner, and had just got seated when a man
came running in and said the President was
shot. This so startled us that we could
hardly realize it, but we stepped out and
were convinced. * * * *
I Your 9, J. M. Dye.”
A Tower of Skulls: —Lamartine, in his
“Pilgrimage to the Holy Land,” writes as
follows : When I was about a league from
Nise, the la9t Turkish town almost on the
frontier of Servia, I saw A large tower rising
up in the midst of the plain a9 white as Par
ian marble. I took the path that led to it. I
desired a Turkish lady who accompanied
me to hold my hor9e, and I sat down under
the shade of the tower to enjoy a few mo
ments, repose. No sooner was I seated, than
raising my eye to the monument, I discov
ered that the walls which I had supposed to
be built of marble, were regular rows of hu -
man • skulls, bleached by ruin and
sun, and cemented by a little sandand
lime,and that they formed entirely the trium
phal arch which now sheltered me from the
burning sun. There must be from fifteen to
twenty thousand. In some places portions
of hair are still hanging, aud waved like
lichen of moss with every breeze, which was
then blowing fresh, penetrating the innu
merable cavities of the skulls, sounded,
like a mournful and plaintive sigh. These
were skulls ot fifteen thousand Servians who
had been put to death by the Pacha in the
last insurrection of Servia. Servia,however,
is now tree, and this monument will teach
her children the value of Independence by
showing them the price at which their
forefathers purchased it.
Answering Advertisements.—A Boston
storekeeper the other day stuck upon his
door the laconic advertisement, “A boy
wanted.” The next morning, on opening the
store, he found a little week-old urchin in a
basket, labelled “Here hq is.”
