FROM OUR EVENING EDITION
Departure of Gkn. Sherman. ~The United
States steamer Russia, with Gen. Sherman
and staff, left Savannah yesterday afternoon
for Hilton Head.
Tried to Rain. —Last evening a few drops,
and only a few, of rain descended on our
city, though hopes had been entertained that
a plentiful shower would come. The gar
dens near the city present earnest appeals
for a little rain.
Tub Weather.?— lnstead of pleasant
showers in the latter days of April and the
commencement of May, we experienced sul
try weather; on this, the 3d day of May,
1365, before dawn, blankets and everything
that could impart warmth and make the
•leepcr comfortable were in requisition.
Not a single city of ten thousand inbaßi
tants now remains to the Confederacy.—
Petersburg, Richmond, Mobile and Augusta,
were the last to be regained by the Federal
Government. But they are now fallen, as
are also Montgomery, the capital of Alabama,
Columbus and Macon.

tracted to the Theatre last evening by the
“Six Degrees of Crime” with the entire com

Messengers of Peace and Plenty. —The
Government of the United States, as it makes
acquisitions of rebellious States, is making
strenuous efforts to relieve the wauts of those
old but new found frends, who have by the
acts of a few been deprived of the protec
tion of a good govern nient. Three steamers,
loaded with rations, have departed from
Savannah for Augusta, messengers of peace,

The Condition of Mr, Seward.— The gen
eral tyish for the recovery of Mr. Sewrrd may
be father to the impression that his condi
tion is not so critical as really is the case.
Although the telegrams in the latest papers
received, announce his continued improve
ment, it should be borne in mind that his in
juries bate been moat frightful, and, with a
persou of his age an unfavorable turn is at
any time possible. Private letters received
in New York at the last dates were to such
(fleet ms to create no little uneasiness among
his friends there.
TJie Indictment of the Traitors.
To the Editors of' the Evening Post :
I notice that in some of your late issues
you call upou the Attorney-General of the
United States to procure the arrest of cer
tain of the rebel leaders upon the charge of
treason. Would it not be as well to call tbe
attention of tbe United States District Attor
ney for the district in which the battle of
Gettysburg was fought, that he may act iu
th« matter, and bring the subject before the
Circuit Court of tha United States for that
Or, perhapa, a fair trial might be had in
the district composed partly of the State of
I presume the necessary proofs could be
Yery easily made in Pennsylvania showing
Robert E Lee guilty of the act of actually
levying war against the United States within
that district j and ao also, in regard to any
or all of the officers, who acted under the
order# of that rebel chief. And the same
remarks apply to each and every one of the
officers who accompanied the rebel Morgan
in his raid through or into the Stale of Ohio.
I see no good reason why Davis, or Ben j -
am in, or Breckinridge, or any other of the
rebel chiefs, should not be Indicted, and tried
and convicted, and punished too, quite as
well in Pennsylvania or Ohio, as in the Dis
trict of Columbia or any other of the semi
In Swartwout’s case (4 Cranch, 126,)
Cbiet Justice Marshall, in his opinion, says,
speaking of the necessity of tfel in the dis
tricts within which the crime to aa alleged to
have been committed : “It hfnot the inten
tion or the Court to Bay that no individual
can be guilty of this crime who has not ap
peared in anus against his country. On the
contrary, if war be actually levied, that is,
if a body of tueo be actually assembled for
the purpose of effecting a purp<«e, all those
who perform any part, however minute, or
however remote from the scene of action,
and who are actually leagued in the general
conspiracy, are to be considered as traitors.”
Then why not TndtCt' ahd try these arch
traitors, in the loyal State of Pennsylvania
or in Ohio ? or even in Vermont, since Davis
avowed that the acts of the raiders in that
State were done under his orders, and as acts
of war against the United States, and #ot as
acts of pillage and trespass against individu
I hope you will not suffer this subject to
rest until A beginning, at least,shall be made,
looking toward the punishment of some of
these arch traitors. I think an indictment
against Davis, Benjamin, Lee and a few
others, in the good old loyal commonwealth
of Pennsylvania, would be a good beginning.

SOtTHfcHX OPENINGS FOR KORTHERN
The Seaboard Cities.
(From the New York Evening Poet.)
The commercial history of the leading sea
board cities of the South—Charleston, Sa
vannah, Mobile, and especially New Or
leans—shows that the great merchants, fac
tors, brokers and bankers who have acquired
the most extended reputation and the largest
fortunes, have generally been foreign or
northerners. It is true of almost every
branch of city enterprise. The proprietors
of those famous houses, the St. Charles aud
St. Loui9 of New Orleans, which won a
world-wide fame as American hotels long
befoie the days of the New York saints—St.
Nicholas and St. James—were nothemers.
The projectors, proprietors, and generally
the editors of the most enterprising and best
known southern journals w e re from the
north or from abroad. The steamship lines
to Charleston, Savannah aud New Orleans
have been.mainly owned and wholly con
trolled in thi9 city. Indeed, every enterprise
requiring unusual tact and energy seems, for
the past tiiirty years, to have been aban
doned by the southerners, who claim to be
capable ol doing anything, it is no rest *c
tl n upon the North to say that the largest
fortunes accumulated in tnis country was ac
quired by a German; and that the largest
individual war tax was paid by a Scotch
man ; and that many of our most eminent
merchants camo to this city, penhiless for
tune-seekers, from New England villages
and towns. It is not a reflection—it is sim
ply a fact.
the south's dependence upon foreign aid.
The rebellion, however, has demonstratt and
beyond question that the great busiuess of
southern cities had not been done by south
ern men. The struggle for independence has
shown the South how utterly depeudeut it
was, for ships and supplies, upon foreign aid.
A darling dream, lor years, has been the es
tablishment of short and direct trans-Atlan
tic steamship lines from Charleston and Sa
vannah to Liverpool and Southampton. The
year 1851 would seem to have afforded a fa
vorabie opening. But the South had no
ships. The blockade busiuess to and from
ail the Atlantic and Gulf ports from Wilming
ton to Galveston, and to Brownsville (or
Mataruoras) on the Rio Grande, has been iu
the hands ot foreigners. Avery considerable
amount of the cotton captured at bavannah
and Charleston was “claimed” by English
ky factors and agents representing
British houses. The large stocks of ail sorts
oi merchandise sold lately, and uovv selling
at ruinous Muetion prices, in Southern port?,
are offered by British merchants and agents,
who are willing, nay auxious, to “shut up
aud go home. Their places are to be
□lied. Ihe restoration ot the Union implies
a restoration ot ail the legitimate enterprises
wjncli have made the wealth of the South,
iho situation of the southern seaboard cities
is such that they will always be great de
pots ot export and import. New Orleans
the queen city of them all, will yet be, in all
respects, to the South what New York is to
Important to the Human Family.—With
out attempting to combat or endorse the
theory set forth in an extract from a report
of the Committee of tbe Michigan Legisla
ture, if it be not true, it is about as clever
an advertising dodge as has been played upon
a legislative body. If it is an established
fact, then Mackinaw trout will boou become
as precious as gold fish. The report says:
The fisheries ot Michigan are but* yet in
their infancy, and yet the total annual pro
ceeds amount to over a million of dollars.
They afford a highly prized luxury for im
mediate consumption, aud form one of our
leading articles of export, and are very justly
regarded as constituting oue of our greatest
interests. It is also a matter worthy of se
rious consideration that the profusion with
which finny tribes (especially Mackinaw
trout,_ so called) propagate their species is a
peculiarity said to be imparted to those who
partake freely and regularly of them lor
food—a supposition that would seem to be
strongly supported by facts, as fishermen are
proverbial for the number of their depend
ants. Many of the inhabitants ot the north
ern fishing districts of our State are the hap
py fathers of ten, or over a score of children.
\ ery numerous cases can be cited as striking
proof in support of this theory. Thousands
ol the wealthier classes from the most civil
ized portions of the Union, especially since
the breaking out ot the war, become con
verts to this theory (through patriotic mo
tives undoubtedly), and go annually to the
fish-yielding rivers and lakes of the North.
Bisuop is in our
cours'e of misquotation again: “Westward
the star of empire,” &e. Berkeley, who
bad, as his infallible friend Pope declared,
“every virtue under heaven,” had among
his virtues the virtue of correctness, and he
wrote, “Westward the course of empire,”
&c. We give the lines as Berkeley wrote
them, and as they are printed iu Volume IV
of the Collections of the Rhode Island His
torical Society, which contains a notice of
Bishop Berkeley, prepared by that distin
guished scholar, Prof. Elton. They form
tne sixth aud last verse of a poem “On the
prospect of planting Arts and Learning in
America,” and were written while their
author resided at Newport —31,)-
“Westward the count oT empire takes Its wav •
The /our first acts already part, y ’
A fifth shall close the drama of the day;
plme'ii noblest offspring is the 4a t,”
It will be observed that the Bishop whose
authority in all that relates to literature is of
the highest, say “four first acts,” and not
“first tour acta,’ though the latter form is
held by most writecs to be correct, and the
other form not on y incorrect, but involving
a positive contradiction. “IIow,” it ie
asked, “can thdbc be ‘four first acts’ to a
drama, and they followed by a filth act?”
We suppose that the reason that Berkeley's
line is go generally misquoted is because
Bancroft lias misquoted it on the back of
the volumes of his long continued and uev
er-to-be-ended history. He ought trt be au
thority on all that relates to America, but
but he is not on this point.— Bostou Traveller.
