Napoleon is likely to undergo a severe litera
ry ordeal by entering the field of authorship.
He has ventured into a region of literature
that requires not only leisure and re
search, but the highest order of ability.
We have not seen any of the critiques on
his work, with the exception of one from
the London Literary Gazette, a periodical
sufficiently imbued with the prejudices
against every thing French.
It must be admitted, however, that the
moral courage of the French ruler has been
great, in venturing into a department of
composition adorned by some of the most
Illustrious names. The surprise on our part
is considerable, that the ruler of the French
•mpire whose affairs must require so large
a share of his attention should have found
time to make the researches required for
such a work.

SPECIAL DESPATCH TO TUX SAVAtfNAU DAILY UEBALD.J
Official advices, we are informed, have
been received in Washington of the surren
der by Gen. Dick Taylor of the Rebel Army
recently under his command, on the same
terms as those granted to Lee and Johnston.
Jeff. Davis an Assassin.
The evidence in possession of the Govern
ment in regard to the complicity in Presi
dent Lincoln’s assassination of Jeff. Davis and
the other persons named in President John
son’s proclamation, is said to be of such a
character that the foreigu government in
whose territory the fugitives may seek ref
uge, will not for a moment hesitate in giving
Davis Bf.arly Taken.
The War Department has received intelli
gence that Stoneman’s cavalry were very
recently close upon Jeff. Davis and his ac
companying rebels at Washington, Ga., and
it was believed that they cannot escape.
Telegraphic Communication with the
President Johnson’s Proclamation offering
a reward for Jeff' Davis’ arrest, has been
transmitted by telegraph through portions of
North and South Carolina aDd Georgia,where
there are no National Forces and where the
Rebels have entire control of wires. Tele
graphic communication now extends from
Washington, D. C. to Macon, Ga.
The trial of the Assassins.
The details for the Court to try the assas
sination conspirators have not yet been com
pleted, and the trial will probably not com
mence before the latter part qf this week.—
Notwithstanding the contrary reports which
have been circulated, we are assured that the
proceedings of the Court will be public.
Gen. Johnston’s Army.
The despatches of the N. Y. Herald’s cor
respondent in North Carolina give additional
and most interesting details of the proceed
ings connected with the pafdiing'of the rebel
Gen. Johnston's Army, and of conversations
which our representatives had with the of
ficers and other leading rebel military men.
Lawlessness off Johnston’s Troops.
When the negotiations for the surrender to
Gen. Sherman commenced, Johnston had al
together about 50,000 troops, but of these not
more than 30,000 wanted to be paroled, the
others departing without asking leave, steal
ing the horses of their officers and striking
off through the country in different directions
where many of them were soon engaged in
indiscriminate plunder and thieving. Gen.
Johnston declared that a3 soon as it was
knows by these men that they were to be
surrendred, his control over them was at an
end, and he was peifeetlv powerless to keep
them together for the purpose of completing
their parole or to prevent their acts of rob
Wheeler’s Cavalry with Davis.
It is supposed that Wade Hampton and
Wheeler, with the bulk of their cavalry have
gone off with Jeff Davis.
Surrender of War material.
About 110 pieces of artillery and 15,000
stanl of small arms comprised part of the
war material surrendered byJohnstoL.
Welcome of Our Troops.
The arrangement of the surrender was
left by Gen. Sherman in the hands of Gen.
Schofield. And when he, in company with a
number of officers and a detachment of
troops proceeded from Raleigh to Greens
boro for the purpose of superintending the de
i tails. The national defenders were everywhere
received by the inhabitants of the country
with the strongest manifestations of delight.
Sentiments of the Rebel Generals.
In the conversations which our correspon
dents had with Gens. Johns’c* and Hardee,
the former spoke very bitterly of Jeff. Davis,
attributing to bis administrative bungling ail
the rebel failures.
Hardee said he accepted the war as the
providence of God, as the means of forever
putting an end to Slavery, which he declared
was never a benefit to the South.
Hardee stated that he saw, two years ago,
that the rebel cause could not succeed, and
acknowledged that the Chivalry, distasteful
as it might be to them, would now be com
pelled to work lor their living. He considers
South Carolina the worst whipped State in
Where Sherman Is.
The two columns of Sherman’s army under
command of Ggns. Howard and Slocum,
consisting of the Fifteenth (17th) (14th) and
(20th) corps, wore expected to reach Rich
RECEPTION OF UNION SOLDIERS.
One of the New York Herald correspon
dents accompanying the movement, furnish
es an interesting description of the Jayous
Northward march of these veteran troops,
THE FPENCH TOBACCO.
Orders have been received at this port,
from the Secretary of the Treasury, for the
clearing in ballast of such vessels as may be
despatched by the Consul of France in this
city, as necessary to export from Richmond,
Va., the tobacco belonging to the French
Government, stored there.
Ships designed to be freighted with tobac
co, arrived in James River several months
ago, but for some unexplained reason they
were not then permitted to ascend to Rich
mond, It is supposed that some of this
French tobacco wa9 destroyed in the great
conflagration ignited by the rebels previous
to. abandoning the city.
The Court Martial, to try the charges against
Ex Congressman Harris, of Maryland, as
sembled in Washington yesterday, where the
accused presented a paper taking exceptions
to the jurisdiction of the tribunal over his
case, and also to the specifications of the ac
sation against him.
At his request this paper was placed on
the file; further proceedings in the case were
postponed until to-day; owing to the absence
of witnesses, who are to appear in Mr. Har
A New Treasury Ascnt.
Col. Alexander left this city yesterday
evening for Pensacola, Fla., and Mobile, Ala.,
to proceed thence by way of the Mississippi
river, having been appointed a Supervising
Speeial Agent of the Treasury Department.
It is understood that his station for some time
to come will be Mobile.
A Rebel General Shot.
Galveston papers of a late date announce
that Major Gen. Wharton, of the Rebel army,
had been shot by a Col. Baylor, of the same
service. This is Gen. John A. Wharton, of
Brazona county, Texas. Wharton entered the
rebel service in 1861 as a Captain in Terry’s
regiment of Texas Rangers, and as such
fought at Mumfordsville, Ky., on the ijpca
sion of Terry’s death. He was promoted
rapidly, and at Shiloh commanded the regi
ment as Colonel. He was promoted Briga
dier General at that time, and subsequently
in Nov. 10, 1863, was promoted Major Gene

Confession off the Assassin Payne—Letter
from Washington on the Condition off
the Sewards, and Confession of the VJl
lain Who Assailed Him.
The following letter, which confirms the
report of the confession of the assassin, Payne,
was received yesterday by Mr. Clarence A
Washington, May 7.
I founp your unele much better than I ex
pected ; his strength is rapidly returning. He
suffers but little pain, although the splint
which has been applied to sustain the jaw is
very annoying, and interferes much with his
regular sleep. He converses with 9ome diffi
culty, but a little time will improve that. He
hopes to take hold of Department business
somewhat daring this week. I drove out
with him two hours yesterday and to-day.
Frederick is doing vety well; he is entirely
conscious; and if the hemorrhage from his
wounds does not return in four or five days
more, Ids physicians think he will be out of
You will be glad to learn that» Payne, the
assassin, has fully confessed his crime, and
all the details respecting it, and the difficulty
he encountered. He confirms fully the
story of the colored lad who, let him into
the house, and also Major Seward’s ac
count. The details which he gives, are, for
obvious reasons, not made public at present,
he said, however, that all the plans of that
Friday night not being carried out, was the
greatest failure that ever was. He has not
made any revelation respecting hi 9 accom

JoflT. Davit, Cornered.
(Special Despatch to the Savannah Herald.) m
Washington, May 8.
Information has been received by the War
Department that a portion of Stoneman’s
Cavalry had got close on the trail of Jeff.
Davis and his fugacious Cabinet, and that
they had been cornered at a place called
Washington, in Georgia. Such disposition
of the forces bad been made, as it was be
lieved, would ensure their capture.
No mention is made in these despatches of
the eleven ambulances full of specie which
were said to have accompanied the fugitives
a portion of the way.
It is confidently believed the Arch Traitor
and Assassin will soon be a prisoner to the
Union f jrce9.
Jaff Davis nu Accomplice of the Assas
Washinoton, May 6, 1865.
The evidence in the Bureau of Military
Justice in reference to the complicity of Jeff.
Davis, and the others included in the procla
mation of the President, is authoritively
stated to be so conclusive, that no foreign
government will hesitate for a moment to di
vest them of all privileges as political refh
gees, and insure their immediate surrender,
as instigators Ltd accessories, of the miser
able tools who executed the felonies for
which they were paid by the eminent Ameri
cans of the Other side in our conflict.
Gold lias dropped still lower, and now
stands at about 139, wavering between 138
and 140, with very little speculation for
either margin. Bears and Bulls are alike
English dates to the 27th ult.,have been re
ceived, and very much indignation is natur
ally manifested at the cowardly murder of
It is more than intimated that if Davis
shall be unequivocally implicated in the as
sassination, by future disclosures, England
will be the leader in an immediate pursuit of
the outlaw which shall know no relaxation of
vigilance until the chivalric assassin be ren
dered up to the officers of Justice, to be tried
for the life he has a thousand times forfeited.
It is said that a memorial on the subject
has been specially addressed to the American
Minister, Mr. Charles Francis Adams, by the
English House of Commons. L.
English Sympathy with America—
Resolution of the House of Com*
mon3 Presented to Mr, Adams—
A Truly Stable Act,
The Steamship Hibernian from Liverpool,
April 27tli, amongst other intelligence,
brings the following ;
“On Wednesday there was only a day ses
sion of Parliament. The attendance was
very slim, only about sixty members being
present. They will assign the following ad
dress, which was presented the same even
ing to Mr. Adams :
We, the undersigned, members of the
House of Commons, have learned, with the
deepest regret and horror, that the President
of the United States has been deprived of
his life by an act of violence, and we desire
to express our sympathy at the sad event to
the American miniver now in London, as
well as to declare our hope and confidence
in the future of that great country, which we
trust will continue to be associated with
enlightened freedom, and peaceful relations
with this and every other country.
The Family Circle. —What a simple,
beautiful, powerful institution it is ! The
nursery and preparatory school of the affec
tions and moral sentiments *>f our nature—
what an incalculable influence it brings to
bear upon the development of our best capa
bilities ! Take, for example, the relation of
children to parents; submission to right au
thority ; trust in a higher wisdom and a
stronger power than their own; love answer
ing to love, meeting it sometimes as a moni
tor, sometimes as a playmate, and uncon
sciously becoming assimilated to it; is it
possible to conceive ah atmosphere more ex
quisitely adapted to quicken in young souls
the innate germs of that ffioral and spiritual
life which is destined to find its highest ob
ject in the disclosures to it of the fatherhood
ot God ? We often speak of the sanctities of
home. Literally, as well as figuratively, our
characterisation of it is true—for it is
there that those affections are first
elicited, exercised and expanded, which
in due time, and unless perverted
by evil, will be filled with the ful
ness that flows from the Uncreated Source,
and that will constitute our aublimer life when
the present initiatory one has passed away.
The family circle is a scenic representation
to young hearts of that higher world of rela
tionships wherein humanity is to reach its
perfection ; and the unquestioning obedience
we yield to earthly parents, our implicit trust
in them, our unreserved love of them, are, in
their first exercise, just those susceptibilities
of our nature which, at the last, will unite
us for ever with the “Parent Divine.” Our
training for immortality begins with our first
recognition of the right to command which
the tones of a father’s voice express, with the
first appreciation of the love which plays in a
mother’s smile. True, we may frustrate but
too effectually these simplest preparations for
what we shoOld be hereafter; but it is not the
less true that it is in the family circle we ac
quire those primary sentiments which consti
tute the very substratum of subjective reli
