REVIEW OK THE WEEK.
Much news of importance has reached us
from the North dating the past, week, not
the least important of which was the official
report of the evidence taken at an early stage
of the trial of the assassins and suppressed
by the Government. It seems that some !
/oalons newspaper correspondent having
given it to the world in a garbled form, it j
became necessary for the government to
publish it entire. In this manner the public
has possessed itself of the most startling dis
closures concerning the plots of the Canada
cabal through whose agency the assassina
nation of President Lincoln was accomplish
ed. This vile murder it would appear was
but a minor part of an extensive scheme, in
cluding a wholesale destruction of property
and shedding of innocent Mood throughout
the North. We doubt if the annals of authen
tic history can furnish, a parallel to this hor
rible plot as it is now developed before us in
all its immense wickedness anJ inhumanity.
It is needless to say that the publication in
this city of the news replete as it was with
the most damming evidence of the compli
city and guilt of the Richmond government,
caused a profound sensation.
The depredations of the forestallers at the
market reached a climax at the end of last
week, and on Monday, the schedule of prices
was again enforced in the market by orders
of Gen. Woodford, much to the relief of the
citizens so long imposed upon by the extor
tionate forestallers. The market is now
again well supplied, and cleared of specula
The steamer Standisb arrived from up the
River on Sunday last with the gratifying in
telligence that the obstructions which have
so seriously impeded navigation are removed.
The last piles have been taken up so that
the largest of our .river boats, the Amazon
can now pass with two flats abreast, up or
down without, difficulty.

The vicinity of the market was the scene
of about half a dozen street rows ou Satur
day last. Nothing serious resulted, how
ever, as the disturbances were summarily
quelled by our United States city police.
Our market is now well supplied with 9um
mer vegetables. Tomatoes, okra, apples,
melons, etc., are selling at reasonable rates.
The first watermelon of the season was made
a present of to Major Geu. Birge, by Nicholas
Geil, market gardener, and the first musk
melon to the Herald, wherein we modestly
opine that we got the best of the General.
Reports reached us with the Northern
news published on Thursday, that the Geor
gia delegation at Washington recommended
to the President, Isaac Scott, of Macon, lor
Provisional Governor of Georgia. Mr. Scott
is well known in this State, anti, indeed, lias
a European reputation as a banker and
financier. There is no doubt that his ap
pointment would meet with the hearty ap
proval of the people of Georgia.
Several persons have been brought before
the Second Provost Court during the past
week, and fined for violation of the regula
tions of tlie Street-Commissioner concerning
garbage and house-offal. We learn that the
dechive action of Capt. Stearns iu this mat
ter has given rise to some little feeling.—
Nothing it would seem, could be more un
reasonable. The requirements of the Street
Commissioner are tew aud easily complied
with : and it people will violate and disre
gard them it is his manifest duty as guardian
of the comfort and health to call them to ac
count. We should be thankful that we have
so faithiul and zealous an officer in the im
portant position of Street Commissioner.

Governor Picrpmst’s Advice to the Color*

You ask if I have any advice to offer you
and your co-laborers m this great w r ©rk. I
answer by counselling you to impress upon
all with whom you come in contact, the es
sential lessons of industry, frugality and
subordination to the laws.
Industry is essential to his moral as well
as Iris material welfare.
By frugality alone can be hope to reap, and
maintain the lull aud permanent reward of
By subordination to the laws lie will win
the respect of his fellow-men, and the right
1o enjoy in peace the fruits of his labor.
The law is a terror to evil-doers, and a
praise to him that doth well. He who does
not violate the law need not tear the law.
Teach him what the law is—tlie first and
comprehensive lesson of which is laid down
in the ten commandments of the Bible.
If he is taught to understand and faithfully
to observe them, I will undertake to stand
between him and the magistrate.
If these simple precepts are inculcated,
and the freedman can be led to rule his con
duct thereby, we may flatter ourselves that,
his future issured, and that his nation will
faithfully, and successfully discharge the
trust which has bceu confided to it by Divine

Another Account of tlie Capture of Jeff.
/ ' Davie.
The Detroit Free Press has received from
3 ajor Hudson of that city, who commanded
tl L> squad of the Fourth Michigan cavaly who
e ptured Davis, the following story of the
si me. which contains some new’ points.
‘•To Major Hudson was given the duty of
ei rroundiug the tent of the rebel chief. He
p 'ked fifteen of his best, men and proceeded
t< execute the order, which was done with
ci nsummate skill, and to the entire satisfae
ti nos his superior officer. The place of
Ci ptuic was about one hundred and tweuty
; fi e miles south of Macon, in the woods
a Joining the small town of lnvinsville.—
A ter the order had been properly executed
of surrounding the tent, the Major proceeded

Mrs. Davis, somewhat en dishabille. She in

ijtpearanco of an antiquated grand dame
pressed with a lady's water-proof cloak and
shawl, minus the inevitable hoop-skirt, how

dirl, bringing a small bucket, emerged from
the tent, apparently for the purpose of going
tb the spring for a bucket of water. This

er husband through the lines. The ruse

“On their way up to Fortress Monroe Mr.

tiopsof meetieg old lriends in Washington,
inquiring about old associates, and evidently
expecting to be lionized and feted upon ar
riving at the capital Davis had attempted in*
vain for lonr years to destroy. The details
iof placing Davis in the casefnats of Fortress
Monroe we will not repeat, as they are the
same substantially as have already been
given to the public. Aftei being confined

chief pretested by a vigorous resistance,
which required four men to overcome. The

der from Secretary Stanton-to forward the
garments worn by Davis at the time of his
capture, Major Hudson was sent for them.
He called upon Mr. Davis. Mrs. Davis was
very indignant. She accused him and his
party of taking her jewelry and her money,
which of course, was a feminine falsehood, as
that distinguished lady retained some $.0,000
in gold, and all the valuables and money that
she had in her possession. After a good deal
of parleying, the Madame consented to give
up the cloak and shawl, against which Mrs.
Clay most violently protested, calling Ma
jor Hudson all sorts of naughty names,
insisting he should furnish her with anoth
er shawl. Asa compromise, there
being no particular humiliation in compro
mising, a respectable garment of this kind
was obtained. But it didn’t suit the wife of
the ‘President.’ Shepiotested that it was no
better than a negro’s blanket. -She was,
however, obliged to accept of the ex

W hy the South Should not be Punish
ed.— Gerritt Smith, well-known for his ac
tive connection with all the radical reform \
movements of the day, recently delivered a
discourse at the Cooper Institute, New Y ork,
which from the originality of the views ex
pressed ha 9 attracted much attention.—
With reference to the much agitated question
of t lie punishment of the South, he said :
All over tlie North there is a clamor for the
blood of the rebels, whom we have capt ured,
and those whom we hope yet to capture. I
have no sympathy with this clamor. The
South having fully surrendered, let all blood
shed cease and alt punishment. (Applause.)
Os course I make no reference to the
asssassination of our President, or to
the starving or murdering of * our
prisoners. Jjet all merited punishmeut
fall on those who are guilty of tjiese iniam
ous crimes. (Applause.) My position is,
simply, that the South shall not be punished
for the rebellion, or, to use another word,
tiiat the South shall not be punished for
treason. I don’t say this because I think the
South does not merit it. I don't say this lie
cause the safety of the North requires no
more suffering in the South. I don’t say
this because I think there arc any valuable
interests in the North to be made moie
secure by more suffering in tlie South.
I don't say it because others have
not been guilty of treason, but I say
they should not be puriTshed for treason,
because we have agreed that they shall not
be. When we entered upon this war we
agreed—somewhat reluctantly I admit—to
conduct the war according to tlie rules of
war. Now I hold that our making this
agreement was an entire surrender of all right
to punish the South for treason. We came
to ibis agreement to conduct this war accord
ing to tlie rules of war, the fact is undispu
tafile, for we accorded to the South beliger
eut lights. The Supreme Court has ack
nowledged these rights: We have acted on
this agreement, by treating their soldiers who
fell into our bauds as prisoners of war;
as enemies in war. Then from time to
time we have exchanged their prisoners for
those the enemy had takeu from us. There
have been truce held between the enem
and ourselves, for burial and other purposes.
There. has been formal as well as uuformai
negotiations, during the war, between the
North and the South. By these negotiations
we recognized their de facto nationality, aud
by the selection of the President himself, of
blessed memory, as a Commissioner, and also
the Secretary of State. And these gentle
men did not wait until tlie Southern Com
missioners came to them, but honored the
Commissioners of the South by going more
than half way to meet them. [Applause.]—
Now all this, and much more, goes to show
that we agreed with the enemy to
conduct this war according to the
international laws of . war. And such
an agreement is a perpetual agreement, and
we must uow treat our prisoners as enemies
in war. Now, how was it we consented to
conduct this war according to the rules of
war? In the first place, we came to do so
because the laws of war required it. Let
me read some authorities on the question.
The speaker then quoted at length from
Yaltel and Hallam, Macauley, and a Ger
man writer named Welkin, to sustain his
position, and said, that of two parties to
a civil conflict, the numbers on each side be
ing so numerous the vauquished.party cannot
be treated as traitors, or in the language of
Edmund Burke—‘‘l don’t knowhow to frame
an indictment against a whole people.”—
(Cheers.) They are too numerous to treat,
like anything else but prisoners of war. Tlie
next thing I would speak of is in regard to
the pardoning ot these men. To pardon
them, I think, is a disgrace to human nature.
I, for one, am not willing that it should go
down to all ages that millions of my country
men were pardoned traitors (Great applause.)
Another reason why this civil war should be
conducted according to the rules of war, was
this; Where great masses of people take very
momentous and responsible positions, it is
not only probable, but it is generally conclu
ded, that they had a sincere and deep belief
in the wisdom and righteousness of their
cause. And one thing more: It is probable,
also, that they had, in fact, no little season
for taken such steps. Wheie such great
numbers of men carry on a war, we may well
believe there has been suffering enough in it
—especially to the defeated party—without
adding punishment, at the close of it, for
Reason. [Hisses, and cheers— renewed
several times, the cheers prevailing.] At
the close of such a war, God speaks to the
Destroying Angel, as He spoke in icgard to
the destruction and punishment of the Jews
—“lt is enough; stay thine'hand.” [Ap
Curious Coincidence. —Washington was
born February 22, 1782, inaugurated 1789:
his term of service expired in the 6Gth year
of his age.
John Adams wrs born October 19, 1735,
inaugurated 1797; term of service expired
in tbe GGth year ot bis age.
Jefferson born April 2, 1743, inaugurated
1801 ; term of sen-ice expired in the GGth
year of his age.
Madison born March 5, 1751, inaugurated
1800; term of service expired in tbe GGth
year of his age.
Monroe born April 2, 1759, inaugurated
1817; term of service expired in the G6th
year of his age-
The above is a list of five of the Presi
dents of the United States, (all men of tlie
Revolution,) who ended their term of ser
vice in the GGth year of their age.
—Last week Thomas Nicholson, residing
at Marblehead, Mass.pbommitted suicide in
a singular manner by stretching himself out
upon his lace in a stream of water about six
inches deep, which ran beneath the flooring
of the cellar of his house. When found, it
was supposed that he might have fallen in a
fit, but as lie had no clothing but his night
shirt, and a plank in the floor had been taken
up as if for the express purpose, it became
evident that he bad committed suicide. He
was sevChty years of age.
