The Brazil Emigration - Movement. —We
understand that the movement of organizing
a colony of refugees from the South for emi

assuming a definite shape. We learn that
over two thousand persons, comprising many
of the leading statesmen, clergymen and
families of the Southern States, have already
signified their intention of joining themselves
to the colony. A day or two since two gen
tlemen arrived in this city from Florida, on
their wav to New York ami Rio, Janeiro,
whose purpose it is to visit Brazil with the
powers of a committee, to hold a conference
with the Emperor of Brazil, and to select a
site for the settlement of the colony.

Captured Cotton Claims.
A great many persons from the South,
from whom cotton and other products of
insurrectionary soil have been captured by
tbe military arm of tbe Government as prize
of war, having filed with the Hon. Simeon
Draper, U. S. Cotton Agent, claims for this
property or its products, Mr. Draper ad
dressed the Secretary of the Treasury for in
structions in regard to tbe disposal of these
claims. On the 17th an answer was return
ed by Mr. McCulloch. The Attorney Gen
eral being of opinion that the Treasury De
partment has no power to adjudicate claims
for proceeds of property captured or turned
over to its agents by the military authorities,
the Secretary thinks that claimants had bet
ter withdraw their papers, and present them
to the Court of Claims as provided by the
act f>i Congress, approved March 12, 1863.
This seems to be the proper course. The
proceeds of this class of property are now
paid directly into the Treasury, *and funds
for reimbursing those entitled to reclamation
must first be appropriated for that purpose
by act ol Congress.
rather got ahead of things “down in Jersey”
and in and aronnd Philadelphia. The floodwas
quite severe,and many impromtu boating ex
cursions and swimming matches were found
to be a necessity. Along the Raritan river
great damage was done to fences and small
farms—the lower part of New - Brunswick
City was submerged ; portions of railroad
track were washed away, turnpikes were
demolished, and for once wate." -yvas supreme
in the home of what is known as “Jersey
Lightning.” However, it lasted only about
a day, when the clouds cleared and the sun
came out, the wet places soon after obeying
. the scriptural injunction to “dry up.”
Borne time since the committee on
the conduct of the war set about iuvestiga
ting the Chancellorsville affair, in which Gen.
Hooker failed so signally to hold the position
he had gained by one of the energetic move
ments so characteristic of that General. —
Among the causes attributed as the cause of
the failure, was the charge of intoxication
on the part of the - General. This charge the
committee examined thoroughly, taking the
testimony of every General in the army, and
it was emphatically refuted, notone of them,
under oath, iping able to swear they had
seen the General inebriated. Still the'com
mittee having learned Rev. Henry Ward
Sieecher had, while in Europe, iu a speech
elivered to a party of Englishmen friendly
to this country, denounced Gen. Hooker as
a drunkard, called on him to appear before
the committee and testily to what he knew
on the subject. Mr. Beecher paid no attention
whatever to the summons. The committee
met again and again, called on Mr. Beecher to
come forward like a man and tell what he
knew ; this time this holy man of truth and
morality wrote a letter to the committee in
which he said his charge was made in pri
vate to a private party, and in confidence,
with the understanding that it was not to be
made public. And he added: As to any
evidence, it was such as to produce moral
conviction but not to establish the fact legally,
that during the latter pifft of the battle of.
Chancellorville, Hooker was under the in
fluence of liquor. Ido not feel at liberty to
mention my informant until I can see him
and get his permission. The' committee
were so disgusted with this response that
they let it stand there, ‘Tor the public,’’
as they say “to decide upon.” Comment is
unnecessary? As to the failure at Chancel
lorsville it may be well to remark, the com
mittee report that Halleck, then General-in-
Chief, failed in his duty to support Hooker as
he should have done.
The Want# ot Society
are, indeed, many, and, as we are aIV aware,
must be supplied. All know that we all help
cue another—that, in fact, communities can
not dispense with bankers, merchants, pro
fessional men, artists, mechanics, farmers,
* laborers, peddlars, &c. An illustration occur
red in the editorial rooms of one of our lead
ing journals the other day. A pop-corn ped
dlar, a large, athletic fellow, entered with a
basket heaping full of the calcalerealised
chrystalliginous frothy luxury and offered it
to one of the editors, who, by the way, is a
great utilitariau, a man who cannot see any
thing go to waste, and especially physical
capacity. He surveyed the athletic pop-corn
peddlar from head to foot, and then said:
“My friend, this is no business for you to fol
low. A great strapping fellow' like you
ought to be out on a farm working.” The
peddlar looked down upon the editor with a
countenance which plainly showed that he
felt both pity and contempt for him. At.
length he drawled out: “What would the
people do for pop-oorn, then ?** The /editor
had no reply to make, but turned to his desk
and resumed bis work.
The Mary Harris Case
is having its effects throughout the country.
Since this case has been betore the*public
several others of a similar nature have oc
curred, all undoubtedly the growth ot a hasty
expression of sympathy for some poor, weak
minded and erring girl, who has been shame
fully treated by some heartless wretch. A
case occurred in Brooklyn on the 18th, in
which a policeman uarrowly escaped losing
his life, simply for discarding a girl agaiust
Whom there was damaging talk. Instead of
proving her innocence to her lover, or con
scious of her innocence, leaving her over
credulous lover to take his course, she re-
Bolved upon taking hi 9 life, and fired two in
effectual shots at him. That this girl deserves
punishment as much a9 any man who
uses deadly weapons, except in defence of
his life, no reasonable mind will deny ; yet
do doubt there will be found many who will
sympathise with the girl, simply because she
is a girl.
Burglars have attained in tbeir profession is
really astonishing. One of the latest per
formances of this class of scientific thieves
occurred in Brooklyn. A policeman observing
a light in a house late at night, suspected bur
glars were at work, and on going to the front
door found it opeu. He entered, and was im
mediately confronted by two men, one of
whom, without warning, tired a double-barrel
ed pistol at the orfleer, both shots taking effect
in his coat collar. They then ran, the officer
pursuing to the yard and over the fences.
Another officer joined in the pursuit, and
they were caught. 8o much to show the des
perate character of the thieves. They were
confined in separate cells in the Station
House, and iu the morning the cell of one
of them was found empty; a large hole
(also empty) was discovered in the wall
through which the burglar bad made his exit.
When the prisoner was put in the cell, he
was thoroughly searched and deprived of
everything that would enable him to escape,
and yet he found means to make a hole in
sold masonry capable of admitting his body
through it. His egress wts discovered so
soon that he had not yet got out of the build

lumber. Upon examination, it was found

FIRE AT GEORGETOWN.
iHeavy Logs for Savannah Men hunU
The Macon Telegraph of the 17th has tne
We learn that a fire occurred in a ware
house at Georgetown, on the South Western
railroad, yesterday, destroying from 1800 to
2000 bales of cotton. Our townsmen, Messrs.
Ros 9 <fc Seymour, we are told, were heavy
losers by the tire. It is said to have origina
ted from the attempt of a negro to smoke out
a wasp nest. «
P. S. Since writing the above we have re
ceived the following:
Edfaula, July 17, 1865.
Mr. Editor: Morris’ warehouse, in
Georgetown, opposite here, was burned on
last Saturday, and fifteen hundred bales of
cotton consumed. The fire originated in the
carelessness of a negro who carried fire on
the lot tor the purpose of destroying a nest
The loss falls very heavy in . Savannah, as
much of the cotton, it is said, was owned by
her citizens. The Eastern Bank of Ala
bama was also a considerable loser—no insu
rance. The flames spread with such rapid
ity that not a bale was saved.
The Treatment of Confederate Soldier#
by the Government.
A letter from Atlanta to the Macon Tele
graph has the following:
But before I close, I can’t help but remark
that it must be a matter of gratitude as well
as surprise, lor our people to see a govern
ment which was lately flghtiug us with fire,
3word and shot, now generously feeding our
poor and distressed. In the immense crowds
which throng the distributing house, Ino
tice the mothers and fathers and widows and
orphans ot our Boldiers, who fought nobly—
and how sadly—too often to the death of our
loved South. Again, the Confederate soldier
with one leg or one arm,.the crippled, maim
ed and broken, and the worn and destitute
men, who fought bravely their enemies then,
their benefactors now, have their sacks filled
and are fed.
There is much in this that takes away the
bitter sting and sorrow of the past. There is
more than humanity in it, on the Dart of the
provider, and the generous conduct will go
farther to heal the wounds of the nation, than
all the diplomacy and political policy of
tricksters aud office seekers during centuries
As the expressions of a soldier who has
fought the battles of the Confederacy during
its ephemeral existence, your readers and
my friends will receive these particulars in
the spirit they have been conceived and ut
tered, a spirit which means that to become a
faithful citizen of thie country, to which we
owe trno and proper allegiance at this mo
ment, is our great and lawful duty.
