[From the New South, of November 25th.)
the ioth of August last, Privates
JamcslGripiKO, Cos. F, 101 U. a. C. TANARUS., and
Beu Redding of the same regimeut (colored),
together with a gaug of colored soldiers, for

the persons of Mrs. E. Mew, Miss Florence
Jletv Mrs. Mary E. McTier and Miss Heape,
witli’tbe assistance of several ot the gaug pf
soldiers who were with them, and stealing
everything that was of value.
Ben. Redding struck Mrs. Mew with his
gun and threatened to take her life. He
then attacked, struck aud bound Dr. Wa Q.
Huzle and Mr H. C. Morgan, and attempted
to kill Dr. H. by thrusting at him with bis
bayonet. Redding was also present and as

Before noon, on Monday, quite a number
o! little companies of people were seeu com
ing into town and banging about the differ

execution. When the time arrived there were
tome two thousand spectators gathered
together, a large majority of whom were col

aud quiet throughout the entire time occupied
in carrying into effect the execution of these
uuiortunate men- All the military were
At twenty minutes betorc three o'clock, tne
condemned men, with their arms securely
emerged from the prison, the clergy
man on one side, and the jailor ou the other ;
two soldiers in front and two in the rear,
with the officer in advance. At this moment
tne baud oi the 6th infantry struck up the
“Dead M ireb,” aud the party moved slowly
and solemnly toward the scaffold. Grippen,
the youngest of the two, and quite an intel
ligent look'mg youth, stepped forward tirmlv;
lire other, Reiidiug, was so weak, from ner
vous excitement, that two soldiers were ob
liged to support him. Ejaculations for mercy
fell from the lips of both as they ueared the
scaffold. At the foot of the stairs the cortege
halted, and, Lieut, Richards, asceuding tbe
scaffold first, motioned tbe others to follow
Grippen moved up tbe steps without
hesftntioti, followed by Redding and his as
sistants. The man’s nerves seemed com
pletely prostrated—entirely uselesss. The
clergyman then proceeded to offer up a
prayer, whioh was attentively listened to by
both men. He then left the scaffold, and
Lieut. Richards, drawing forth a paper, read
iu a clear, slow and distinct voice ttio finding
of the Court, the sentence, the appoval *f
the General commanding, and the orders.
Lt. H. M. Jones,Act. Asst. Prov. Marshal,
who had been charged with the conduct of
the execution, having positively refused to
pertorm the duties assigned him, was placed
under arrest, and Lt. Chas. F. Richards sub
stituted in his place.
During the ten minutes which was occu
pied in reading the above orders, the feet of
the condemned men had been bound se
curely together. The officer now asked
Grippen it he had any thing to say ; If he
bad, he would repeat it for him to the as

guilt, and warned all those present, more
particularly the colored troops, aud his own
company, which were present, “not to be
led away by strange men, but to do right,
aud they would not lie wturehe now was.’’
Re also wislied them all good-bye. Red
ding. although nearly exhausted, desired the
officer to warn all “to be good,” and bid
them all “good-bye.”
The officer then drew the black caps over

The Latent New lark Murder.
The New A ork papers of Friday contain
accounts of a most shocking murder com
mitted in Brooklyn on Wednesday night last.
The victim was a wealthy Cubau theatrical
manager, named Jose Garcia Otero, who
came to this country a short time ago on
business connected with his prolession. He
left his temporary stoppiug place, tbe Barce
lona Hotel, in Great Jones street, between
six and seven o’clock on Wednesday of last
week, in company with a’friend named Jose
Gonzales. Senor Otero bad, it is thought,
from eight to ten thousand dollars on bis
person. It is supposed that after leaving bis
botel be was joined by other parties, tbe
whole proceeding to Brooklyn, where, at ten
o’clock the same evening, Otero was found
murdered, but his body was not then cold
A dagger aud two razors were found near
him, which at first gave rise to the idea that
be had committed suicide ; but closer inves
tigation revealed the fact that he was brutal
ly murdered by one or more persons. Tbe
matter was given into the hands of the de
tective police, and late yesterday afternoon
they arrested a Cubau, named Theodore Mar
tinez Bellecer, on board tbe steamship Man
hattan, lying at pier No. 4 North river, as
she was about to depart for Havana and Vera
Cruz. The person of the prisoner was ex
amined, when jt was discovered that his
hands were cut in several places, as if with a
sharp instrument. A pair of gloves, cut and
soiled with plood, were also tound, and his
clothing was thickly soiled with fresh blood.
He was handcuffed and taken to Brooklyn,
and was subsequently taken to view the body
of the murdered man, when be exhibited
great nervousness and shook his head, but
said nothing. He is now in close custody
awaiting the result of an inquest, which is iu
progress. Jose Gonzales, the man with
whom Senor Otero left his hotel, had not
been found on Saturday, but no efforts are
being spared by the authorities to discover
him, as well as others on whom suspicion
St ill Later from Mexico.
The steamship Corsica, which arrived at
New Y ork Irons Havana on Friday last,
brought advices from the city of Mexico to
the Btb, and from Vera Cruz to the 13th inst. :
“Several additional small victories over the
republicans are claimed by the imperialists
in the Slates of Oajaca and Michoacan. It is
said tli AI the latter has becu nearly cleared of
republicans and guerillas, a force of six hun
dred of them having, according to the re
ports, recently met with a severe defeat
there. In the State of Guanajuato, General
Guzman and a party under him are reported
to have been completely annihilated, which
means, we suppose, that those who were
made prisoners were immediately shot, iu
accordance with Maximilian’s decree. No
alluatlou is made to au intention of with
drawing the imperial troops from their
frontier positions, ol which we have hereto
fore had reports, nor is any reference made
to the rumored impe.ial evacuation in the
Northern Mexican States, it being asserted
that in Sonora aud Sinaloa the condition of
affairs remain unchanged. It is added that
un imperial force, supposed to be intended to
operate against the republicans in the latter
State, is assembling at Acapulco. The Em
press Charlotte left the capital on the Cth
iust. on her long projected visit to Yncatan.
Ex-Prei ident Zuloago has been exiled by
Maximilian’s government, and has arrived at
Havana on bis way to France. The ex rebel
General Magruder has beeu appointed im
perial Surveyor General of Colony Lands.”
Accounts of tbe 15th ipst from tbe Rio
Grande frontier of Mexico, states that “Gen-
Mejia, the imperUlJ commander,' still held
Matamoras, and the republican army was
encamped wilbin about eight miles, confi
dent of soon having possession ot it, as well
as of Bagdad, at the mouth of the river.—
Mejia had issued orders forbidding any one
crossing tbe river to or from Matamoras.—
Tbe imperial gunboats and batteries there
opened a furious fire on tbe 14tU on some
flatboals discovered floating down the stream
which were believed to be republican rams,
and a Matamoras paper says that during the
attack many republicans were killed, wound
ed and drowned. Another account, however,
states that the supposed infernal fleet was
merely a collection of American flatboats
loaded with wood, on the way to Brazos. It
is said that a swift vessel is to be immediate
ly despatched to France for imperial rein

Thos. Pope, oi New York, bound for Mon
rovia, Africa, cleared at our Custom House
this afternoon, having on board seven mis
sionaries as passengers, and twenty-nine
thousand gallons of New England rum as
part of her cargo.” New Eugland has cer
tainly done a great deal toward civilizing
and christianizing the African race, hut we
doubt if much good will result trom tbe ex
pedition ot the Thomas Pope. Rum is tbe
greatest enemy that religion aud euiighlea
meut have to contend_ with. It debases and
imbrutes tbe jieople of every civilized na
tion, and, as we see from tbeyibove extract,
it follows tlie bumble missionary into tbe
far-off land of the beatbeu to undo the good
work that be may accomplish. The philan
thropists of New England should understand
that rum is not at all promotlve of “negro
elevation,” particularly when the accompa
nying proportion of missionaries is so plainly
inadequate. If they must seud their famous
beveragu to tbe heathen, they should make
tbe proportion not less than one missionary
to a barrel of rum, and even in that caso we
fear the rum would come out ahead.—.V. Y.

MORE THAN SOME OF THEM BAR
While tbe radical papers of tbe North
unite in insisting that the ratification of the
constitutional amendment abolishing slavery
by the States of the South shall be made a
condition precedent to their re-admisslon
into the Union, there is a difference of opin
ion amongst them as to the true force and
meaning of the clause of tbe amendment
wbich gives to Congress the power “to en
force this article from proper legislation."
The New Y ork Tribune and other journals
of its class claim that this grant of power
works a complete revolution in tbe theory
and practice of our political Institutions.—
Tbe Tribune in an article maintaining this
view says :
“Tbe Constitutional Amendment aims at
tbe absolute, unconditional abolition of
slavery throughout the United States ; but
it does not slop here. Hitherto the personal
liberty aud civil rights ol each citizen were
held and eujoyed under the protection of
the 'states respectively ; hereafter they are
to be upheld and guided by the nation.”
At this assumption of power the New
Y’ork Post, professing still to adhere to the
state rights doctrines of tbe old democractic
republican party, stands aghast. In an arti
cle vehemently protesting against such
a construction of the clause of tbe
constitutional amendment above quoted, tbe
editor says: “this wesay would be acomplete
radical, disastrous overturn of our whole
political system, ot everything that is pecu
liar to it, that is Valuable in it, that is vital
to its success. The originality and eminence
of tbe federal system ot government, devised
by our fathers after the maturesl and wisest
consideration of the subject that had ever
been given to it, and after ibe most careful
comparison of tbe experiences of all time,
consisted in tbe nice balance it maintained
between tbe central and local authorities. It
discriminated so cautiously between tbe
powers that properly belonged to the state,
representing a particular and local communi
ty, aud the Union, representing all these
communities together, that it has been able
to function with an unparalleled vigor and
harmony. Slavery alone, a hideous excres
cence and anomaly, was strangely permitted
to continue uutil it tried to destroy their
work. But otherwise the system has been
admirable in its completeness and beauty.
Tbe states with that exception, protected aud
defended the civil rights of every individual ;
the general government harmonized the
States and controlled foreigu relations ; and
in tbe happy co-operation of the two, society
was led forward with a degree of freedom,
prosi erity, general comfort, intelligence and
order that has never been approached in the
history of civilization.
Now, are we to change this symmetrical
and beueficeut plam which combines the
most diffusive self government with national
unity aud strength, for one of the old world
plans a hundred times tried aud a hundred
times defeated, oi mete national centraliza-
tion! But what form of ceutralizaiiou has
ever been more complete, more despotic,
than that which makes all the personal aud
civil rights of a community to depeud upon
a single central authority ? Have tbe abso
lutists of Europe, from tbe Czar to Louis
Napoleon, any other theory of government,
or any other purpose, than this? To con
centrate power, authority, contt oi, tbe initia
tion and the execution of laws in a single
source, is despotism, whether that power tie
exercised bv a single man, a single class, a
single representative assembly, or by a single
government of any sort.
Indeed, a government of that kind must of
necessity be a despotism. The power wbich
controls thirty, forty or fifty millions of men,
in all the variety and complication of their
interests, which attempts to oversee and
guard the rights of so immense a multitude*-
must necessarily be an energetic, condensed,
coherent, arbitrary power. For nothing but
force 9f the most decided peremptory kind
can regulate so unwieldy a body from a
single centre?. Witness the experiments at
revolution in France, where, wilbin a cen
tury, there have been two dozen different
dynasties or systems, all ending in despot
ism, because all began in centralism, from
wbicli no one ever departed. Should we
do better uuder tbe same congestive princi
ples and methods ? Not at all; but we
should only rush with tbe same fatality to
the same fatal # bourne.”
If tbe Tribune’s interpretation of the clause
is to be received, then certainly the Post and
its school of Republicans have got more than
they bargained for when they advocated its
