HOW TO OBTAIN THE HERALD REG
We often have complaints from residents of Savan
nah and Hilton Head tb-t they are not able always to
obtain the Ftaatn. The demand Is sometimes so
great aa to et aacst an Edition very soon after its issue,
and those who wish tc have the n«Ai.» regnlarlv.
ah. aid snWibe for it. We have fa.thful carriers in
Savannah rd at Hilton Head, aad through them we
always serve regular snbserioers first.
BUSINESS DIRECTORY OF SAVANNAH.
we are now publishing a colntnttaad more of brief
business announcements, carefully classified, under
the general head of ’’Ssvannali Business Directory."
It includes some forty leading buslneas men and
*rma of Savannah. We propose to retain this as a
regular feature of the Hbraxd. The expense of in
•citing Sards tn thla department of rbe paper is very
email, and we believe the advertisers will receive
tnore than a proportionate benefit. Part.** wishing
to have their cat da Included in this Directory, can do
bo tty sending them to our counting room, or hand
ing them to Mr. M. J. Divine, who is authorised to
receive them. Prepayment will be invariably re

Os the many improvements that have been
devised In this country within the past quar
ter of a century for the expansion of com
merce and for the convenience of the public,
none are entitled to more favorable consid
eration than the popular system of special
transit by express.
This mode of speedy and safe conveyance
of articles of value between the most remotc
and inaccessible points of the country, has
become to be regarded by tbc American pub
lic as an .institution of almost equal import

Its immense operations, conducted under
the faithful and skillful supervision of the
numerous corps of employes, who may be
found at every important point from the St.
Lawrence to the Rio Grande, have not failed
to attract the attention of all classes of our
people, as attested by the immense patronage
that has so liberally compensated tbe pro
prietors of the various lines now in success
The leading organization in this peculiar
branch of commercial intercourse is that so
universally known as “Adams’Express.”
The sudden outbreak of the war disturbed

prising company. But, on the restoration
ait peace, and, indeed, before this event had
fuliy transpired, its agents were following in
the wake of the vlctorl >uj Federal armies
through the Southern Stan s, re-establishing
■with astonishing succe s their facilities of
communication with the South.
The prompt occupation of the City of Sa
vannah by Gen. Sherman, on the 21st oi
December last, and the no less prompt re
occupation of its o’d quarters by this com

days thereafter, is fa incident in point, illus
trative of the vigilance aud activity of its
A mere casual observance of the current
amount, of transportation accomplished
through this channel conveys to ihe mind no
accurate conception of its magnitude.
Immediately on the resumption of busi
ness in the city, the then available means of
the cpmpany for sending articles forward
were severely (axed, and the pressure has
continued, with occasional intervals of re
laxation, to the present time.
Sensible of the many benefits rendered to
the public by tbe liberal and accommoda.
ting agents of tbe company resident in this
city, and not unmindful of favors received at
their hands in times past, wc welcome their
reappearance in our midst, and wish them
the most satisfactory suscess in tbe prosecu

Field, Tcbf and Farsi.— We are indebt
ed to Mr. C. A- Barstow, Purser of the
eteamer Nevada, for the first number of
anew weekly entitled “Field, Turf and
Farm, Tbe Sportsman’s Oracle aud Coun
try Gentleman’s Newspaper,’ published at 62
Liberty street, New York, by S. D. & B. G.
Bruce, Editors and Proprietors Since the
euspension ot Porter's Spirit of the Times,
the want of a well conducted journal, exclu
sively devoted to the dissemination of infor
mation on subjects connected with the field,
turf and farm, has been very generally ac
knowledged. The sheet before us is hand
eomely primed, and its sixteen ample pages
■well filled with instructive, entertaining aud
amusing reading. A. glance at its contents
has impressed us favorably, and we do not
hesitate to recommend it to Southern read
ers, especially to those who feel an interest
in the sports of the field and turf, and kin
dred subjects. The subscription price is five
dollars a year in advance.
The Port Royal New South.—The spicy
little New South, published at Port Royal,
6. C., combs to us regularly, and U a wel

of all important events at Hilton Head, 1
Beaufort, Charleston, in Florida, aud in the 1
South Atlantic Squadron. J. H. Sears, Esq.,
its proprietor and Editor, is an honorable,
generous, public spirited man, esteemed by
all who have his acquaintance, and we are
glad to hear his paper is flourishing.
The Norfolk (Va.) Day Book is one of
tbe revived Southern journals, which has late
ly been added to our exchange list.
New Paper hi Charleston —Messrs. Cath
cart, McMillan & Norton announce that in a
few days they will commence the publica
tion of the Charleston Daily News.
Noblh Bequest —Mr. Ephraim M. Bay
nard, a highly esteemed and noble hearted
citizen, one ol the oldest and most successful
planners on Edisto Island, died very recently,
leaving the generous and magnificent be
qoeet of one hundred and 6ixty-six thousand
dollars, in City six per cent, stock, for the
benefit of the Charleston College.
Paid Up.—The Washington Republican
says that the former Postmaster of oue of the
principal cities of . eorgia, has just settled
with the Post Office Department, and paid
for every stump he had on hood fit tUt Cot&*

CITY POINT —LIFE AND ANIMATION.
At City Point the ex-Coufederatc begins
to feel that he is in a different atmosphere.
Railroad cars running every hour; steamers
and vessels arriviug and deponing; teams
passing to and fro; soldiers, black and white,
hurry backwards and forwards, and tbe bus
tle and confusion incident to what appears
to be quite a business place are seen and
beard on every hand. Immeuse warehouses
md wharves have been constructed along
the bank of the river, which are principally
used for Governmeut purposes. Enterpris
ing Yankees have built quite a respectable
town on the bluff, which is reached by long
flights of stairs. Quite a commodious’ hotel
has beeu erected, which is occupied almost
exclusively by officers, but where a civi iau
can get a fine meal, a capital julip, aud a
good night’s rest.
Two lines of steameis now run from Rich
mond, via City Point and Fortress Mquroe,
'o Baltimore. The “New Line,’’ as it is call
ed, composed of the steamers City Point and
Dictator, for Fortres* Monroe, and tlie Geo.
Leary and George T. Brady, are the favorites,
and are generally thronged with passengers.
The tare and accommodation* are excellent.
The Leary is regarded as one of the fastest
-teamers afloat, and makes tbe trip to Balti- j
more in two hours less time than either of >
IMPROVEMENTS—TUB RAILROAD AOAIN.
And now for Baltimore, and theuce to
Philadelphia and New York.' An accommo
datiou train leaves the Monumental City at
8 o'clock, followed by the express at 9 a. in.
the former due in Philadelphia at 1 p. m.,
the latter in New York at 4 p. m — Quirk
trip, you mar well say. The road bed has
hfen changed in several places ; tbe change
or ears at the Susquchannali, at Haver-de-
Grace, has been obviated—the entire train
being carried over on an immense boat—aud
you ruu through to New York without
change of cars. A ralimad bridge is being
built over the Susquehannah.
CHANGE —THINOS AS THEY ABE NOW.
To one who has been shut up in the Con
federacy for five years, numerous changes,
trivial, perhaps, in themselves, are apparent
a few of which we mention.
MATTERS AND THINGS IN PHILADELPHIA.
Stages, (or omnibuses as we term them,)
have entirely disappeared from the streets of
Philadelphia—horse cars have taken their
place. All the principal streets have rails laid
A large park, in imitation of the great New
York Central, has been laid out near tlm
Schuylkill Water Works.
The New Jersey Central and the Camden
and Ain boy Railroad Companies hare been
merged into one concern.
A GOOD IDEA.
Postoffice boxes are attached to the lamp
posts, where letters can be dropped, and they
are prouiply delivered. »
TO YOItKVILLE AND HARLEM,
As we made our headquarters with a rela
tive in Harlem, and consequently rode up
and down every day, a good opportunity
was afforded of observing the improvements
and extension of the city. The Third Ave
nue Railroad Company run cars through to
Yorkville and Ilarlem—a distance of eigi t
miles from the City Hall—for the low price
of seven cents. Some idea may be formed
ot tbe business done by this horse car insti
tution when it is known-that cars leave tbe
City Hall and tbe stables in Cist street from
daylight until 12 p. m., every three minutes,
and from that hour to daylight against every
fifteen minutes, and they are always lull.
The Ist and 2d avenue railroads have n»at
and extra wide cars, called dummies, with a
small engine in one cud, which are run on
the route from (Ist street out.* These cars
present a singular appearauoe at a short dis
tance, as little or no smoke is vfsiblc.
HOUSE CANS VS. OMNIUOBSES.
Cars are driving omnibusses out in
New York, there being very few except tbe
Broadway lines. The numerous railway
routes ia the adjacent streets have dimin
ished the pressure aud crush in Broad way to
a great extent. No railroad has yet beeu
laid on that great thoroughfare below 25th
street, although frequent efforts have been
made to do so.
street sweepi.no machines.
Broadway and some of the other principal
streets arc now swept by a machine iu the
shape of a wagon, with a revolving fan,
which takes up the dust aud dirt tborovghly.
A NEW STYLE OF ADVXRTISINO.
Barnuui 'and bis Museum (this of course
was written before the burning of the muse
um,) are still “up aud doing.” Mr. B. al
ways keeping an eye on the dollars and cents,
has converted the drop curtain in the “lec
ture room” into an immense advertising
sheet, where the extraordinary virtues or
“Hudbell’s Goldeu Bitters,” the maguificent
tone of certain piauos, etc., are expatiated
This “two hundred acres of vanity," as it
is irreverently termed, is being rapidly filled
up, and another piece of “new ground" wi 1
soon have to be added. Miss Cauda’s Itaud
some “affair," which cost the modest sum of
$25,000, and for years has been considered
the principal attraction of the cemetery, has
been completely thrown in the shade—in
price, afleast, $50,000 rjid even $75,000 be
ing no uncommon price for the oruatneuts
tion of a grave. Several of this class have
lately beeu erected—a vault somewhat re
sembling a Turkish mosque is now the
“lion" of the place.
Wm. E. Burton, the comedian, generally
known as the “inimitable Billy," lies interred
in Greenwood, with only a wooden head and
foot board to mark the spot.
The vault of the “Old Sea Captain” has
received its occupant at last—the old mau
having given up the ghost during the month
of October, 1864. On bis last voyage across
tbe ocean he brought with him a skillful
artist in stone and a block of marble of his
own selection, for the purpose ol having a
sac simile of himself “ worked out,” to adorn
his grave. Tbe work was completed, and
sioce then it is stated that tbc old captain
paid a visit to the place several times a
month—amusing himself by keeping tbe
shrubbery, &c., in order.
FASHIONS FOR THE LADIES.
The fashions for ladies strike one very
agreeably. Imagine a nicely fitting colored
gaiter, or “ Balmoral" shoe—laced above the
ankle, with a small silk tassel appended; a
neat and very pretty “Balmoral" shirt—ot a
grave or gay color, according to the taste of
the wearer, extending a little below the top
ot the gaiter; the skirt of the dress booked
or drawn up by a cord, so as to show three
or four niches of the aforesaid Balmorals ; a
broad belt, with a large buckle; a tasty bon
net, without a crown; an imitation Scotch
cap, or a regular boy’s cap, with a feather or
bunch of feathers on one side; the front
hair tucked up iu little ridges; the back hair
arranged so as to full gracefully down on the
shoulders, in & sort of ball—termed a water
tall—completes a very elegant and attractive

New York is rapidly being built up

- THE CASINOES.
The mania for musical drinking bouses is
very great; and there is scarcely a block in
Broadway but has one or two—somewhat on

The theatres —six or seven in number—be

theatre in this city twenty years ago, is play
ing second second-rate characters at Wal
lack s. With the exception of Wallack, Da
venport, Mrs. John Wood, with a lew others,
the theatrical companies are composed of
new names. Miss Jeau Hoamer, a young
American actress, is playing a successtnl en
gagement of several weeks at the “Winter
Garden.” Site is of tbe Charlotte Cushman
order—in size, at least; aud we have the as
surance of old play goers that, although
somewhat faulty—and who is it that the the
atrical public regard as perfect ? Miss Jean
bids fair to take her place by the side of the
“terrible Charlotte." Os pleasing address,
fine form, handsome face and professional
merits of an uncommon order, it is no won
der that this lady lias been drawing full
houses even during the “heated term. °
i The prices of all articles, from a mint julep
| to a silk dress, have advaueed to about
: double the rates previous to tbe war; and
the merchants state that prices are low now
j tn what they were a few months ago, when
; gold was over 200.
THE CENTRAL PARK.
| The CeDtral Park draws thousands of visi
| lots daily—in carriages, bretts, pbaitnns, so
ciables, solitaites, and half a dozen other
styles of vehicles ; persons on horseback aud
on loot. Saturday afternoon is the fashion
able lime for visitors—there being music on
the . mall by Dodworth’s celebrated band.
Miniature lakes, lountaius, bridges, delightful
drives, cool retreats, shady nooks, u tine col
lection of wild animals comprise some of
tbe attractions of this renowned park.
PAINFUL REFLECTIONS. ,
The contrast between tbc appearance of
tbiugs iu the Northern cities and those of
our own State is painful iu the extreme ; but
it is hoped aud believed that iu a few years
they will all be able to rise again, and be
ouce more occupied by a thriving popula
HOMEWARD BOUND—BURIAL AT SEA.
In turning our steps homeward wo were
rather undecided whether trf take the cheap
er but more tiresome mute by laud, or the
expensive but delightful trip by sea to
Charleston. At tbe last minute we deeided
on the latter, and took passage on the pro
peller “Grenada,” CapL Baxter. Tbe boat
is in excellent condition, and, with pleasant
weather, the best of fare and good company,
the time passed veiy agreeably. During the
passage, one of the firemen became over
heated, aud in the course of a lew hours
died. At daylight tbc next morning, tbe
body was sewed up in a blanket, with some
weights attached to the feet, and thrown
overboard. The passengers expressed re
gret at the summary burial, and on enquiry
we found that the pool fellow was a stranger
—having only come aboard the afternoon the
steamer sailed. No oue evtn knew his name
or from whence ho came.
In coming into Charleston harbor, we pass
ed close under the walls—no, the debris—ol
poor old Sumter. Unless the information
was given, no oue would ever suspect, from
’its present appearauce, that it had ouee been
a formidable work. But its glory has not
departed The old fort, noxloubt, will be
rebuilt, and again take its place as oue of the
guardians of the Queeu City.
THE LAST SCENE OF ALL.
A railroad ride to Orangeburg, aud theu a
wagon ride of forty-three miles, brought us
home, where we hope to remain at anchor
for a length of time.
Wise Southern Advice. —The Mobile Reg
ister, before the Rebellion, was tbe leadiug
paper in the Gulf States, outside of New
Orleans, and was probably tbe most influen
tial of all. I’Sstheu editor, Hon. John For
syth, has returned to his post, aud is now
writing with iiis accustomed vigor in favor
of reorganization ou the go vein meat basis.
In a lute editorial he says : >.
Iu respect to the emancipation oath, we
give the counsel to our readers ou which we
have acted ourselves. Whether the act of
emancipation has been legally and constitu
tioually completed or uot, slavery is as dead
as Julius CiEsar. No human power can re
surrect it, and we candidly admit that if that
power rested in our single haud, we would
uot, under present circumstances, exert it.—
A nd we cau say this much without changing
a siDgle oue of our life-long opinions ou the
beneficence of the institution as the very
best lorm of organized labor, for mankiud at
large, and for the well-being of tbe slave in
particular. But what are our opinions worth
against tbe fixed and unalterable sentiments
ot the civilized aud semi-civilized world ?
What do they avail when the sword lias just
declared against them ? The iucxorable fact
is that the iustitntiou of slavery is uprooted
in the laud, and if we had the power to re
establish it, iftwvonld be Uirougi such a pio
ccss of cooflict and turmoil as to make the
game not worth the candle. It is the part
of good sense to accept facts, that the death
of African slavery at the South is one of
those unchangeable; and unchallengecble
facts we accept without a moment’s hesita
tion. The deed is done; let us make the
best of it, and shape our course upon it as
as a stem fait accompli. Now, the deed be
ing virtually done aud beyond recall, let it be
constitutionally done, aud let every Southern
State iu convention at once endorse the de

sword, and the voiee of the nations of the
earth seem to have united iu promulgating.

Address to the People of the State of
[Fmin the Jacksonville (Fla.) Union.)
The civil authorities in this State haying
engaged in an organized rebellion agamst
the Government ol the United States, have,
with the overthrow of the rebellion, ceased
to exist, and the State, though in the Union,
is without a civil government.
The Constitution of the United States de
clares that the United sjates 6liall guarantee
to every State in the union a republican
form of governmeut, and shall protect each
of them against invasion, insurrection and
In order to fulfil this guarantee, and for
tbe purpose of enabling the loyal people of
this State to organize a State governmeut,
whereby justice m«y be established, domestic
tranquility insured, aud loyal citizens pro
tected iu all their rights ot li!e ; liberty and
property, tbe President of the L'uited States
lias appoiuted me Provisional Governor ot
the State, and made it my duty, at the ear
liest practicable moment, to prescribe such
rules and regulations as may be necessary
and proper for convening a convent ion, com
posed of delegates to be chosen by tbat por
tion of the people of the Stale who are loyal
to the Uuited States, and no others, for the
purpose of altering or amending the consti
tution of the State, and with authority to
exercise within the limits of the Slate all the
powers necessary aud proper to euable the
loyal people of the Slate to restore it to its
constitutional relations to the Federal Gov
ernment, and to present such a republican
form of State Government as will entitle the
State to the guarantee of the United States
therefor, and its people to protection by tbe
Uoited Stales against invasion, insurrection
and domestic violence.
In the performance of the duty thus en
joined upon me, by the President. I shall, as
soon as the people of Ihe Stale have had the
opportunity to quality themselves to become
voters, appoint an eiectiou, to be held in the
different counties in the Stute, of delegates
to a Stute couvcmion to be convened ut a
time and place to be hereinafter named.
The persons qualified to vote at such elec
tion of delegates and the persons eligible as
members of such convention, will be such
persons as shall have previously taken and
subscribed the oath of amnesty as set forth
in the Presideut’s Proclamation of May 29th,
A. D. 1865, and as are also qualified as pre
scribed by the constitution and laws of ihe
Statu in force immediately before tbe lltb
day of January, 1861, tbe dute of tbe so
called ordinance of secession. Where the
person is excepted from the benefits of the
amnesty proclamation, he must also have
been previously specially pardoned by the
President before he cau become a qualified
voter or eligible as a member of tbe conven
tion. This interpretation of the two procla
mations of the President I received trom
himself in person, aud also from the Attor
The oath referred to may be administered
by aud taken aud subscribed before any
commissioned officer, civil, military, or na
val ,in tbe service of tbe Uuited Stalesqor any
civil or military officer of a loyal Slate or
Territory, who by the laws thereof is quali
fied to administer oaths. The officer admin
istering the oath is authorized and required,
on request, to give to the person taking it,
certified copies thereof.
Iu order to give to the well disposed peo
ple of this State time and opportunity to
qualify themselves to be voters for delegates
to tbe convention, tbe eiectiou will not be
held uutil a reasonable time has elapsed for
them to take and subscribe the oath lequired,
and to procure the special pardon, where
such pardon is a pre-requisite qualification.
The election wil y.e held immediately there
after, and no allowance will be made for un
reasonable delays in apply ing for pardota.
Applications tor pardon should be iu writ
ing, aud addressed to tbe President of the
Uuited States, and state tbe ground on which
a special pardon is considered as uecessary.
Tbe application should have attached to it
tbe original oatli or affirmation contained iu
the proclamation ot amnesty. Inmost cases,
tbe application for pardon will* not be acted
upon by the President, until it has received
the recommendation of the Piovisioual Gov
ernor. It will save time, therefore, to seek
his recommendation in the first instance. The
application should then be sent to the office
of tbe Attorney General.
I have been informed by the military au
thorities, that a considerable number of posts
have already been established in the State,
and others soon will be, with officers attach
ed, authorized to administer the oath requir
ed, and to give certified copies thereof, so as
thereby to give every' facility lot taking the
oath, with little or no inconvenience or ex
pense to the applicant.
In * l n; meantime, and uutil the re-estab
lishment of a State government, it is left to
the military authorities to preserve peace and
order, and protect the rights o(•persons and
Au understanding has been had with the
commander of the department, whereby per
sons occupying the offices of judges of pro
bate may continue to take proof of wills,
and issue letters testamentary and of admin
istration, and clerks of circuit courts may
take the proof or acknowledgment ot deeds
and mortgages, and record the same, as here
tofore, and all persons occupying ministerial
offices may continue to perform such duties
and offices us are essential and convenient to
the transaction of business. If any doubt
should hereafter arise concerning the validity
of their acts, such doubt ean be removed by
a legislative act of confirmation.
By the operations rind results of the war slavery has
ceased to exist in this State. It cannot be revived.—
Every voter for delegates to the convention, in taking
the amnesty oath, takes a solemn oath to snpport the
freedom of ihe former slave. Tile freedom intended,
is the fu'i. ampl* and complete freedom of a citizen of
the United States. This does not necessarily Include
the privilege of voting. But it does Include the idea
of full constitutional guarantees of. future possession
and quid enjoyment. The question of his voting Is sn
open question—a proper subject for discussion—and is
to be decided as a question of soaud policy by the cuu
ventlou to be called.
Upon the establishment of a republican fonn of
State government, under a constltn'ion which guar
aulees and secures liberty to all the inhabitants alike,
without distinction of color, there will no louger exist
any Impediment in the way of restoring tlis State to
its proper constitutional relations to the government
of the United States, whereby its people will be euti.
tied to protection by the United States against inva
sion, iusurrtctou, and domestic violence.
Dated at Jacksouvl lie, Fla., this 3d day of August,
Hooker, Sickles and De Trobriakd—The
New Military Commander of the Cana
dian Frontier. —A correspondent of the
New York Herald writing from Canada
It is noticed, as every point of the kind
is canvassed here just now, that the courteous
and amiable General Dix lias been relieved
of bis command, and a bevy of most brilliant
and belligerent soldiers of the war placed in
charge or Ids department. As this comprises
the Canudiau frontier, it is held to have the
signification, at least, of a change of am
bassadors. Dix was educated at Montreal,
extensively acquainted here, known to be a
reciprocity man and generally friendly.—
Hooker's name has always been synonymous
with “ tight," and the adreut of ’’ Fighting
Joe" on this border is somewhat omiuous.
The gallant Sickles, I see, is associated in
the command. He has the reputation of
being the best organiser of voluuteer troops
duriug the late war. He has also been the
favorite General of the tribes of the Fenians.
This, too, is rather noticeable. But if noth
ing is really meant by these changes, why
associate the name of De Trobriana at this
time with these generals in the frontier com
maud. Is there any purpose to advance the
name of the gallant Marquis for tbe honor of
succeeding Montcalm and Do Salaberry in
tbe hearts of tbe French Canadians?
When it is realized that the largest muster
which cau be raised here of British and Ca

Tbe Kingdom of Acadia— Shall the Cana
da! be Farmed into u Constitutional
In my private conversation with Canadians
at Detroit, I was struck with the matter-of
fact way in which they alluded to the “King
dom of Acadia." Pursuing this clue, I have
found that the tory faction in all the prov
inces look forward to tbe erection of a con
stitutional or limited monarchy, under the
title of the “Kingdom of Acaaia,” as a fixed
fact. It is only a question of time, they as
sert ; the foundations are laid, and this
structure of anew nationality is already well
progressed. But this proved to be a mere
outside view, and the inside movers of the
scheme have had their sanguine anticipations
terribly shaken by tbe unexpected collapse
of the rebellibu iu our adjoining domains. To
understand the exact condition of the
scheme, however, it is necessary to allude in
detail to its origin and progress.
In the darkest hour of the late troubles in
the United States, the iufamous mischief
making correspondent of the London Times,
Bull Run Russell, had his abode in private
chambers at tbe New Yoik Hotel. He des
cribes his position us one of imminent dan
ger; shunned and detested even by his fel
low lodgers, he was in constant terror of
being mobbed and hanged. Under the im
pulse of these fears, and in bitter hatred of
the people he had so malignantly traduced,
he suddenly abandoned his quarters and took
passage on the train tor Niagara Falls and
the British possessions on their northern
It was upon his arrival in the Canadian
cities—especially at Kingston, Ottawa and
Montreal—that the signal was given for the
practical inception ofthis kingdom of Acadia.
He describes iu his book ou the subject his
buisy effortß in this scheme and the lieurty
co-operation with which it was organized
The first step was necessarily a consolidation
of the divided provinces, and hence the
scheme of a confederation. Tiie delegates
engaged iu this plan have since been to
England aud returned. They will report
progress to the Canadian Parliament on the
Bth day of August next. When Russell and
his associates initiated the project McClellan
was beaten in Virgiuia and the ruin of the
United States was proclaimed abroad. It
was upon the site of this ruin that the British
aristocracy and tlicir tools, the Canadian
rnjyilists, designed to erect the kingdom of
Acadia, with one of the young scions of Vic
toria for a king. But this vast intrigue of
the British aristocracy and the Britisli capi
talists for the destruction of the North Ameri
can republic has failed. The expected 20
years of war and intestine division sought to
be fomented by these deliberate and insidious
plots, and by all the hundreds of millions of
British gold advanced to the Southern Con
federacy and its dupes, have ended in pre
senting the Uuited States in an attitude ol'
strength, temper and menace which puts the
proposed Canadian Confederacy and its tail
of an Acadian kingdom in a verv dubious
predicament.— Cor. Neto York Herald.
A Physician Shot for Killing his Patient.
[From the Grand Rapids (ulch.) Eagle.)
A terrible tragedy took place iu Leighton,
Allegan County, on the night of the 19th
inst., resulting in the death of a citizen of
that township. It appears from the informa
tion we have been able to gather of the
melancholy occurrence that tbc rash act was
caused, without any real foundation, by the
promptings of that green-eyed monster
called jealousy. John Bright, a Union sol
dier, returnee! from the set vice on Monday
last, with the determination, as evinced, to
kill Dr. Colburn of that place, whose
motal reputation was not good, sot insulting
his wife, which insult is said to be no more
or less than that the Doctor was seen, when
upon a professional call upon Mrs. Bright,
some time since, to kiss her, which liberty
was resented by his wife, and the physician
discharged. Hearing of this affair from
some communicative friend, before and after
liis returned, Mr. Bright resolved on slioot
iug the offender. Meeting the Doctor iu the
road on the afternoon of the fatal day, the
affair was talked ovetand an amicable settle
m*nt agreed upon, by which tbe Doctor
was to call at Bright's house the next morn
ing, talk the matter over, and make the
amende honorable as far as possible before aud
to Mrs. Bright.
Here the parties turned from each
other to their respective homes, and they had
gone but a few steps when Bright, stopping,
turned suddenly around and, in a vio
lent manner said to the doctor : “We will
settle the matter right here, this evening.”—
Accompanying the words with tbe action, he
drew a revolver from his pocket and shot
the doctor when nolover six paces irom him.
tbe ball striking him in the side and passing
eutirelv through his body. The doctor then
started on a run toward a marsh close by,
and the assassin, thinking he had not killed
him, fired at him without effect twice more,
and snapped his pistol a third time. His
weapon foiling to fire on the fourth attempt
to discharge it, he threw it away as being
Brigiit, seeing the doctor still alive and
cared for by the citizens, who had gathered
on the alarm, said that be was sorry he had
not killed him. The dot tor lived until next
morning, when death relieved him of his
sufferings. Bright stayed at his home until
the Dext day, saying that he would stand all
trials, when, doubtless, becoming frightened
in view of the result ol the case, he left, and
has uot since beeu heard from by the author
ities or the people in that locality.
Bee Funeral— A correspondent of an
English paper transmits the following:
Ou Sunday morning lust I had the pleas
ure of witnessing a most interesting cere
mony, which I desire to record for the bene
fit of your readers, and if Dr. Cummings,
the Times' bee master, happens to be one of
them I would particularly commend it to his
uotice. Whilst walking with a friend iu a
garden near Falkirk, we observed two bees
issuing from one of the hives, bearing be
tween them the body nf a defunct comrade,
with which they flew for a distance of ten
yards. We followed them closely, and no
ted tbe care with which they (elected a con
venient hole at the side of tin? gravel walk —
the tcuderness with which they committed
the body, head downward, to the earth—and
the solicitude with whioh they afterward
pushed against it two little stones, doubtless
“in memoriam.” Their task being ended,
they paused for about a minute, perhaps to
drop over the grave of their ffieud a sympa
thizing tear, when they flew away, and, as
John Bunyan says in his dream, “I saw them
no more. ”

The Fatal Accident on the Matterhorn.
The Journal de Geneve of Tuesday last
publishes the following letter from Randa
(Vailais) dated the 15th:
“In informing you yesterday by despatch
of the ascent of Mont Cervin (or Matterhorn),
I did uot expect it would be my duty to de
scribe to you a terrible accident. The infor
mation which I have received respecting this
catastrophe is as follows: Messrs. Edward
Whymper and Charles Hudson, members ot
the London Alpine Club, and Mr. Iladdo and
Lord Francis Douglas, members of the same
club, met at Zermatt, each desirous of con
quering the Cervin colossus, h'therto Inac
cessible. Mr. Hudson had brought from
London cables of iron wire to facilitate the
asceut, but finding Mr. Whymper ready to
leave be left them at the hotel, aud set off
with his unexpected comrades with-no other
object than to find out the best way. They
took witli them as guides Michel Croz of
Chamcutii, and Zum Taugwald of Zermatt,
with his sons. It was tbe 13th. No member
of the party expected to succeed that Jay ;
it was only proposed to find out the route
which would lead to the desired object. They
bad, in fact, left their instruments at Zer
matt, aud were only supplied with seveu
bottles of wine. Oue of the sous of Taug
wald left them and returned to the village
The tourists passed the night of the 13th on
the snow at the f <ot ot the Cervin. Lord
Francis Douglas, who was but nineteen years
of age, alone slept, overcome bv latigue ; the
others remained awake. At daybreak they
pursued their journey, and finding Ihe asceut
much easier than they expected, pushed on
and reached ‘die summit toward 2 o’clock in
the afternoon. At that time they were dis
tinctly seen from Zermatt, with the aid of a
telescope. They remained on the sum
mit until 3 o'clock, when they began to
descend. Michel Croz went first; after him
came the four tourists, Lord Douglas, and
Messrs. Haddo, Hudson and Whymber, in
succession. Tbe son of Taugwald aud the
father closed tbe liue. They were all tied
witli tbe same cord, and were descending,
rejoicing in their success, when Lord Douglas
suddenly slipped, and, giving a violent sbock
to tbe cord, threw down iu their turn Messrs.
Haddo, Hudson and all the band, who were
hurried with lrighttul rapidity to the brink
of t> precipice. Taugwald, Seuior, the last
of the chain, preserved his presence of mind.
He was happily able to pass iiis cord over
the ridge of a rock, and lor a moment he
thought lie had stopped a frightful tail; but
the cord broke between Messrs. Whymper
and Hudson, and the four unfortunate men,
Michel Groz, Lord Francis Douglas, and
Messrs. Haddo and Hudson, bounded from
rock to rock dowu a bight of nearly 4,000
feet. The three survivors returned to Zer
matt tliis morning at 10 o’clock, I leave you
to imagine in what condition. Twenty men
immediately left to discover the bodies,
which they thought they could see through
a glass lying iwo by two, the cord having, it
appeared, broken again- The whole village
aud the numerous tourists there are iu a
state of consternation.”
The Journal de Geneve remarks : “This
sad catastrophe, which will excite in every
part of our country the prot'oundusl syra
potby, will ever be associated with the first
ascent of Mont Cervin. It was the only sum
mit of the Monte Rosa croup which hnd re
sisted the efforts of man, the last virgin sum
mit of tiie environs of Zermatt, the Gable
horn, having been climbed on the 7th of
The bodies of the victims of the catastrophe
were recovered ou the 15th instatit. Tiie
Rev. Mr. Downdon, the Eugiish chaplain as
Geveua, has left that city for Zermatt.
Piety and Poverty—lCirby Smith and
A Texas correspondent of the New York
Tribune writes as follows:
As popular rumor, botli here and at the
North, has ascribed to these two gentlemen
the possession ot immense wealth, derived
from the Mexican cotton trade, simple jus
tice to two gallant officers demand the refu
tation of a calumny (unfortunately for them?)
without the slightest foundation in fact.
Should they be arraigned for treason, neither
of them possesses enough to euable them to
retain the services of even a Tombs lawyer
for his defence. Those who know the char
acter and habits of the two men will need no
argument to convince them of this. General
Magruder is an improvident and impulsive
man, whose liberal ami profuse expenditures
were never restrained <by any thought for
the future. He is indebted to the generosity
of friends for the scant menus by wbiqb he
hopes, as a refugee in a foreign land; to be
able to escape persecution.
General Smith, on the other hand, is 9 gen
tleman of most exemplary life and spotless
private character. A pious aud humble
member of tbe Episcopal Church, in which
it was his highest ambition to be permitted
to take holy orders on the termination of the
war, his orderly habits and scrupulous adher
ence to a conscientious discharge of his du
ties, assure all reasoning men of the ground
lessness of tlds charge. Indeed, his lack of
Administrative capacity as a department
commander placed the possibility of suc
cessful peculation beyorni his reach had he
been so inclined.
The Instinct of Birds. —A parroquet and
a canary occupied separate cages in the same
room. The canary bird's cage was large and
roomy, while the parroquet's was small aud
One afternoon when several of the family
were present, "both birds being quite tame,
the room doo.-s were closed and both cages
opened. On coiniug out, the birds at first
amused themselves by hopping about on the
carpet and picking up crumbs. Gradually,
however, the parroquet advanced to the door
of his companion's cage, entered and took
possession by hopping on the perch. The
alarmed canary immediately flew to the res
cue and entered the cage, but not daring
to attack the parroquet. and uot liking his
company, it came out again* and endeavored
by much fluttering and angry talking on the
top of the cage to frighten’ away its more
powerful adversary. Not succeeding in
this, it made an expedition to the de
serted cage of the parroquet, and entered it
for a more particular examination. While
canary was thus engaged, tiie parroquet
came down from its perch and with its bill
closed the door aud made it fast.
The canary, not satisfied with the propos
ed exchange, returned aud took up its posi
tion on the top of its owu cage, appearing
very uneasy. One of the party theu opened
the door of tiie canary bird’s cage, in which
the intruder was sitting with the utmost com
posure. The canary then flew dowu, enter
ed and took up a position on the perch be
side the parroquet. Alter a little fluttering,
bnt no real fighting, fiodhig it, still uncom
fortable, the canary resigned its cage to the
parroquet, and took possession of the one
deserted. After this abaudomnent of the
contest the parroquet agaiu descended from
its perch aud attempted to shut the door as
before ; but this time the dpor was wide
open, aud more difficult to draw to than
when, as ia the former instance, it was half
open. Alter one or two ineffectual attempts
to close it, he hopped out of the cage, went
to the end furthest from the binges, drew it
half to, placed himself on tbe threshold, aud
finished the operation by closing it on the
inside, and fastening with his bill the wire
The birds passed the night in each other’s
cages, but on the morrow justice was done,
and each was restored to its own domicil.
Good Aijvice. —At a dinner to Gen. Sher
man, in St. Loub recently,Tie made a speech
closing, with this sentence : “Therefore, my
friend's, “now that the war is over, let us all
go to “work to do what seems most honest
and just to restore our country to its physi
cal prosperity, l repeat, to its physical
prosperity. As to its political prosperity, I
know nothing of it, and care about it far
