Supplement to (The pattij Jerald. The Savannah Daily Herald The Freebie lit and the Parvlon-bei-krr ». 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 cess.” 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 country. 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 bard labor. 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 ginia. 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. Boston Punctilio.— The Boston Transcript says that the Boston Monday morning pa pers were not allowed to publish (reports of Sunday evening meetings, the State Consta ble having just decided that their prepara tion and printing are not works of necessity, mercy or charity.
