The River Clear or Torpedoes.—The Sa
vannah river is now completely cleared of
torpedo®, the steamer Standish having been
engaged in taking up and destroying them.
The work of destroying them was, in some
cases, very laborious, it being necessary to
bore the torpedoes with augers as they lay, in
order to let in water to destroy the powder
before it was safe to raise them. Three tor
pedoes were raised and Jfive destroyed by the
Standish, and the river is now clear for travel
from Savannah to Augusta.
“Abolition” Socikty in Stain —‘There is an
establishment in Madrid of an association for
the abolition of slavery in tbe Spanish colo

The first “abolition” meeting which has ever
been held in Spain was convened at Madrid
on the 2d of April. The meeting was crowd

CAPTURE OF JEFFERSON DAVIS
Two Detachments of Our Troops Fire upon
cacj ether In the Darkness.
Davis Attempts to Escape in the
PRITCHARD'S BOYS “ DO.VT SEE IT."
Foil Particulars, Etc.
Immediately upon the receipt of the order
of President Johnston offering a reward for
the apprehension and delivery of Jefferson
Davis, the late Confederate President, Gen.
Wilson broke up bis command into uumerous
detachments for the purpose of scouring the
country and securing the fugitives. Among
the parties who were thus engaged was one
composed of a detachment of the 4th Michi
gan cavalry, under the command of Lieut.
Col. D. B. Pritchard, numbering ajjout 128
persons all told, officers and men.
Col. Pritchard swept through the district
of country designated as his field of opera
tions for three days without success, but on
the afternoon of Wednesday, the 9th instapt,
came into possession of such evidence as
made him sure that he was at last upon the
track of Jeff Davis. , *
He now pushed lorward, under the di
rection of trustworthy and well-informed
guides, with renewed enthusiasm, and at a
late hour of the same night came upon the
camp of the fugitive party at a spot about
one mile outside of Irvinsville and not far
from Abbey ville, in this State.
Davis and hi 9 companions, j including his
wife aud wife’s sister, a few officers and a
body-guard, all heavily armed, traveled with
two ambulances and two or three arrnv
Coming up to this camp, Col. Pritchard
noiselessly disposed his men around it, so as
to cut off all chance of egress, though he was
ndt then aware whom he had captured. The
doomed fugitives were all abed, not dreaming
of their danger. At this moment, before any
further movement was made, another scout
ing party came up, which afterward proved
to be a detachment of tbe First Wiscon9iu
Cavalry. The Wisconsin boys did not stop
to make inquiries, bnt seeing a camp sur
rounded by cavalry, f*r defence as they sup
posed, made an impetuous charge uponJt.
The mistake was mutual, and a serious fight
ensued, which lasted for full fifteen minutes.
Four men were killed out of the Michigan
Cavalry and several wounded. Os tbe Wis
consin boys, several were severely, and it is
feared, mortally wounded. The discovery
was. at length rnadu however that both parties
were “boys in blue,” the fighting ceased, and
the most uproarious cheers, aud cntbuaiaom
beyond description Followed.
The fugitives were of course aroused by
the first noise of the fighting, and started
from their beds in utter panic, knowing not
which way to turn.
Davis, however, had the self-possession to
make a most desperate attempt to escape.—
It appears that, during the fighting, Mrs.
Davis had arrayed her husband in her own
divas.. put_. on .him her hood and tied her
about his head so as to conceal his face
completely. When thus disguised the late
President of the Confederacy bore a dece?
tive resemblance to an old woman. Mrs.
Davis took one of his arms aud Mrs. D.’s sis
ter the other, and thus apparently support
ing the tottering steps of the old lady, at
tempted to make away from the scene of
conflict into a neighboring swamp. ’
Four of Pritchard's meu stopped the trio,
however, when a piteous appeal was made
to them by the pseudo-daughters to allow
them to conduct their poor old mother out
of the range of the bullets. One of the
soldiers promptly replied that he “couldn't
see it—that they were after Jeff. Davis, he
was here somewhere, and they meant to have
him.” Dismounting, he took off the hood,
and instead of an old lady, found the well
known features of Jefl'. Davis beneath it.
The officers and other members of the
fleeing party were easily secured.
Before daylight the forces started on their
return to Macon, where, ou his arrival, Col.
Pritchard dispatched the news of his glori
ous success to Gen. Wilson. He was imme
diately ordered to Augusta with his captures.
From Augusta he was ordered to conduct
hia prisoners forthwith to Washington. He
accordingly embarked on board steamer
Standish, Sunday night, reaching this city at
an early hour this morning. Here Colonel
Pritchard’s party was transferred to the Ein
ilie, which immediately started for Hilton
Head. At Fort Pulaski the Emilie was met
by the W. W. Cbit with Gen. Giilmore, Judge
Chase and others, who went on board the
We are told by those who saw Jeff Davis,
that his appearance is but little altered from
what it was/our years ago. He seemed to
be in good health and little cast down in
spirits. When the prisoners were; transfer
ed from the Standish to the Euiilie, he re
marked, with a smile, as he stepped upon
the gang-plank connecting the two steamers,

A SOUTHWARD MOVEMENT.
A southward movement of our population
has been going on for tbe last four years, but
the emigrants have carried muskets aud can
nons, with the intention of returning after
doing a specific work. The people compos
ing the rebel armies have also been moving
very actively in a southward direction of
late—so many of them as hang together and
are n>»t “gobbled up.” The next southward
movement will be of a different character —
the emigrants will carry the arts and machin
ery of peaceful industry, and will go to make
homes in the fertile regions restored to the
Union and to law, and to iuvigorate the slip
shod society of the South with the spirit of
free and educated labor. It cannot be
doubted that annihilation of slavery in the
South, and the destruction of class privil
eges which rest upon it, will open the gates
of that great section of our country to the
flood. of emigration that has been pouring
with irresistible velocity into the new States
aud territories of the West. Heretofore the
stream of emigration, rising in Europe and'
reinforced in the populous Eastern States,
has swept along north of the Ohio, as though
the iioe between the free aud the slave States
were a solid and impassable wail of ada
mant, like that which, in Addison's oriental
.vision, divided the future abodes of the good
andQthe bad. There is no reason for
this except the conditions of law and so
ciety in the two sections. Cotton is a
more profitable crop than corn. There
are no physical barriers to divide the
country in that direction. The great rivers
and the great ranges of mountains run north
and south, and the emigrants have crossed
them to find homes in the heart of the con
tinent. Why is it that the Southern States
on the Atlantic coast and the Gulf, so ad
vantageously situated for the prosperity of
every interest, have not been filled up and
improved ? Virginia, the oldest of all, had in
1860 but eleven millions of acres of improved
lands, against nineteen millious unimproved,
giving only round numbers; North Carolina,
six millions against seventeen millions;
Georgia, feight millions against eighteen mil
lions ; Missouri, six millions. against thirteen
millions ; Arkansas, one million against seven
millions ; and so on to Texas, which had two
millions against twenty millions. Missouri,
a state larger than all New England, posses
sing almost unexampled resources in its soil
and situation, has less than eighteen inhabi
tants to the square mile, while the adjoining
state of Illinois, almost in the same latitude,
was three times as populous. The contrast
may be made even more striking by compar
ing New York with Virginia, Massachusetts
with South Carolina ; but it is not necessary.
We feel confident that the peace which will
soon crown our costly war will mark anew
era in the prosperity of the South. It has
tbe most fertile soil in the cuuutry ; it lias
navigable wateis for commerce, leaping
streams for manufactures, important staples
and mineral wealth, and these will attract
capital and labor when Freedom points the
way. —Boston Herald.
Clear'the Prisons !—On the accession of
anew monarch, it is a new custom ot the
Old World to show mercy to some of th e
luckless* inmates, Os political. prisons. We
entreat our President to consider soon aud
earnestly the propriety of imitating, and
even liberalising, this excellent cus
We have no donbt at all of the propriety,
nay, the necessity—of what are termed
“Arbitrary Arrests,” in a time of Civil Wur,
ia which traitors are found almost every
where. Knowing well that the power to
make such arrests will almost certainly be
abused, .we yet hold that it exists, and must
be exercised. Individuals may sutler injus
tice ; but let them suffer, if so only cau the
Republic be saved.
But this power to arrest at will is not only
an exceptional—it is a terrible power. It
ought not to be tolerated one day beyond
the continuance of the necessity that work
ed it. Under its 9way, private rights are
suspended ; our liberties are at the mercy of
an individual will. The wielder of such a
power be he a statesman, a saint and a sage;
yet beeaa hardly help abusing it,' at the
beck of dissembling hypocrisy and scheming
villainy. We canuol doubt that hundietls
have been caught up and caged- who were
innocent and loyal, and whose estates have
become they prey of the peijured villains
who prompted their, incarceration.
Had the wholesome safeguards of the act
of Congress authorizing a suspension of the
privilege of Habeas Corpus been uniformly
respected, the abuses of this power would
have bteen far fewer and less flagrant. We
do not understand why the provision enti
tling an arrested person to a hearing before
some proper tribunal after a few days incar
ceration should be so often disregarded.—
And it is quite notorious that some of the
arrested were never worth the cost of their
keeping, modeiate as that was or should
The Call tor Volunteers to Mexico, —
The following advertisement appears in a
Washington paper this morning (May sth):
MEXICO — TO ALL OTi'ICEKS AND SO LUX EES.

to Mexico, In accordance with the Mexican decree,

phia, and other cities.
Office hours at 258 Pennsylvania Avenue, between

Much excitement has been created in mili
tary circles by the above advertisement,
calling upon volunteers ior Mexico to enroll
themselves. Such a proceeding has not been
authorized by this government, and has hard
ly the sanction of that of the republic of
Mexico; but there is unquestionably a
scheme on foot by which all veteran officers
and soldiers who desire to sustain the Mou
roe doctrine will be enabled to draw their
swords in defence of republican principles,
without Involving, either themselves or the
government in any trouble whatever.
Recently we heard a good story of an oc
currence which took place in Newburvport,
Mass. A servant girl in that town went to
Dr. Spofford for advice, declaring her ail
ment to be a pain in the bowels. The doctor
gave her a cathartic, and requested her to
call again in a few days, which she did. He
asked her if she had taken the medicine, to
which she replied in the affirmative. He
then asked—“ Did anything pass you aftqr
taking it?” “Yes, sir,”, said she, “ahorse
and wagon, and a drove of pigs.” The
doctor collapsed, remarking: “T think you
must be better.”
On one occasion the Colonel was asked by
some ladies if it was not worse for the gen
tlemen to drink than for the ladies to use
snuff ? The Colonel replied that both were
very bad ; and that it" his wife should e?«r
take to suuff, he’d Uktr, certain.
