Tbe Washington correspondcn! of the
Philadelphia Inquirer tells these stories of
the seekers for pardon :
On Saturday not over thirty were present
at the White House, among whom was Wil
liam Porcber Miles, of South Carolina. Ap
proaching the President be said : “I come to
procure a pardon sir.” “Under what class
do you come?” asked the President. “I
left a seal in Congress to join my State, and
have only acted as thousands of others have
done. You have pardoned two of my col
leagues, Messrs. McQueen and Boyce; my
nanlh is W. Porcher Miles, aud I only ask
the same favor.” The President promptly
replied, “Your case must take its chance
with others, and in the regular way; 1 can
not take it up now-i. This was an evident
set-back, but Miles rallied and said: “Well,
sir, I would like to have a permit tb go to
work in some civil pursuit, either mercantile
or professional. I have lost everything, and
must do something." “Tha. is not necessa
ry,” answered the President; “there are no
such papers used." Not to be put off. Miles
continued, ‘ls there no mode by which I cau
expedite my pardon?’ ‘None at all, unless
you seethe Attorney Gen. and learn if there
are reasons why it should not be granted,’
and tbe chivalric Miles bowed hurriedly out.
As he left a seedy scion of another most no
ble family approached the President, and
sought pardon ancTthe restitution of his pro
perty. The same answer greeted him, that
be must wait his turn. ‘Well,’ said he,
‘When I get It, will Congress interfere with
me? for I hear pardons are of no account
unless Congress confirms them,’ quoth the
modest criminal, whose clothes indicated he
had long since flourished in the rank of a
brigadier general. ‘That, sir, is not my look
out. I cannot answer for the action of Con
gress,’said the President, abd the partially
reconstructed rebel left in grave dqpbt as to
whether his salvation would be very com
plete, even if he gets his parchment. The
rest of the pardon hunters had no better suc
A Telegraphic Fbat — Communication be
tween New Orleans and New York. —The
Memphis Bulletin of Nov. 26, says, last
night, for the first time in nearly ten years,
telegraphic communication was held be
tween New York and New Orleans. The
drst message transmitted from New York to
New Orleans was as follows : “Weather
clear and pleasant. Time 8:55." The au
wer returned was : “Weather clear and
001. Time, 7-50." Another dispatch from
New York was followed by tbirty-oue mes
ges from New Orleans .to New' 1 ork, oc
cupying about forty minutes, each message
averaging twenty words. This length of
line has been worked only once before, and
that was between San Francisco and New
Ti ork, a few months ago, the only success
attending which wag t|je transmission of a
few words. This leases the credit to the
stretch of line between New Orleans and
New York of being tbe longest over which
any business has ever been done in this
Arrest op Treasury Aoents. —Mr. Dex
ter, United States Treasury Agent, under
charges of malfeasance at Mobile, is held tor
trial by a militaryjeourt. On application for
tbe release of Dexter, Gen. Woods refused,
ou the ground that the writ of habeas corpus
is not restored in Alabama, whereupou the
District Judge granted an attachment against,
Gen. Woods, returnable in two weeks.
The special Treasury Agent lor Choctaw
County, Ala., charged with defrauding the
department, has been sentenced to pay a fine
of $9,000, hnd one year’s imprisonment at
A Speck of Rebellion.— Jefferson county,
Va., is inclined to rebel against annexation
to West Virginia. At a late meeting in
Charlestown, it was resolved that two per
sons from each magisterial district of the
county be appointed for the purpose of can
vassing their districts for signers to petitions
to Congress and the Legislature, and at the
same time to receive such contribution in
money as the citizens may be willing to make
toward defraying the expenses of defending
themselves against annexation to West Vir
Curious Mishap. —At a piano foite manu
factory in New York, last week, a weary
young workman got into a box containing
an upright piano, partly packed, and went
to sleep on the straw. He was missed, but
not discovered, aud the box cover was quiet
ly screwed on. The weary young man was
presently awakened by the rude shock occa
sioned by removing the box to the wagon in'
the street, and found himself staudiig upon
his bead. After the lapse of some moments
he made himself beard and was released, but
not until he was well-nigh suffocated.
