Some misapprehension seems to exist as to
the increase of the regular army proposed by
Senator Wilson. His bill provides for fifty-
eight regiments, each regiment to be com
posed of ten companies of sixty-four men m
each, or about thirty-seven thousand infan
try. The twenty cavalry and artillery regi
ments would swell it to a minimum strength
of fifty-seven thousand. Geu. Grant is un
derstood to favor the ten company regi
Various newspapers have given an impres
sion that Senator Wilson's bill for remodel
ing the regular army will produce a standing
force of ninety thousand men. According to
the terms of the bill there are less than eighty
regiments, all told, provided for, and by
company organization of sixty-four meu,
ranK and file, these regiments cannot be
more than seven hundred strong, thus giving
an army of about fifty-five thousand.

PRESIDENT CALLED UPON FOR MORE INFOR
A Washington letter of the 12th inst., says
Mr. Raymond stole a march upon the Presi
dent s enemies to-day very neatly. He sent
jin a resolution calling upon the President
for all information tending to throw light on
f the political condition of the States lately iu
11 rebellion, such as proclamations from Pro-
I visional Governors, election returns, reports
of government agents, and the like. The
House at first refused to receive this by
operating in technicalities, but subsequently
agreed to it, when offered by Mr. Divis. of
tbeOuondago district of New York,to whom
Raymond turned it over for presentation.—
The effect intended by Raymond is the frus
tration of a scheme tbe radicals have for
-ending a sub-reconstruction committee down
South to make a report to suit them. 1 he
President is in possession of all tbe unbiased
teotimomy neeeded in this mattter ; but the
radicals, bent on throwing every obstacle in
the way of reconstruction, refuse to re
ceive it as reliable, backed as it is by news
paper reports and the tales of commercial
travellers in tbe conquered land. Mr. ttay-
mond'.s resolution gives tbe President a caance
to produce information which will prove ex
haustive of the subject. If afterward tbe
L radicals are shamefaced enough to insist on
’ a special spy committee, the country vvill
icadily observe that the Reconstruction
1 Committee is really bent on obstruction.

as constitutionally present wilh'allthe insur
gents who prosecuted hostilities and made
raids upon the northern and southern bor
ders of the loyal States. This doctrine of
constructive presence, carried out to its log
ical consequences would make all who had
been connected with the rebel armies liable
to trial in any Stale and district into which
any portion of those armies had made J.he
slightest incursion. N ' ‘
the correctness of that — ^
ing the doctrine mentioned as a doubtful con
stilutionality, I have thought it not proper to
advise you to cause criminal proceedings to
be instituted against Jefferson Davis or any
other insurgent in States or districts in which
they were not actually present during the
prosecution of hostilities. Some prom
inent rebels were personally present at
the invasion of Maryland and Penn
sylvania, but all, or nearly all of them
received military paroles upon the surrender i
of the rebel armies. While I think that those j
parties have no ultimate protection lor prose- j
cutions for high treason, I have thought that
it would be a violation of the paroles to pro
secute those persons for ■crime before the po
litical power of the Government has pro
claimed that the rebellion has been sup
pressed. It follows, from what I have said,
that 1 am of the opinion that Jefferson Davis
and others of the insurgents ought tq. be tried
in some one of the States or districts in which
they, in person, especially committed crimes
with which they may be charged. Though
active hostilities and flagrant war have not
for sometime existed between the United
States and the insurgents, peaceful relations
between the Government and the people in

OF WAR AND ATTORNEY
The President, on the 10th, transmitted to
the Senate a message in reply to a resolution
calling upon him to inform that body upon
what charges Jefferson Davis is confined,
and why he is not brought to trial. The
President incloses reports from the Secretary
of War and the Attorney General, and atthe
same time invites the attention of the Senate
to that portion of bi9 annual message which
refers to Congress the question connected
with the holding of Circuit Courts of the
United States within the districts where their
authority has been interrupted.
LETTER FROM THE SECRETARY OF WAR.
War Department, Jan. 4, 1866.
Sir—In tbe annexed Senate resolution,
passed December 21, 1865, referred to me by
you for report, I have the honor to slate:
First—That Jefferson Davis was captured
by United States troops in the State of Geor
gia, on or about the 10th day of May, 1865,
and by order of this Department has been,
and now is, confined in Fortress Monroe, to
abide such action as may be taken by the
proper authorities of the United States Gov
ernment. , . ,
Second—That he has not been arraigned
upon any indictment or formal charge, but
has been indicted for tbe crime of high trea
son by the Grand Jury of the District of
Columbia, which indictment is now pending
in tbe Supreme Court ot the District. He is
also charged with the crime ol inciting the
assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and with
the murder of Union prisoners of war by
starvation and other barbarous and cruel
treatment toward them.
Third—The President deeming it expe
dient that Jefferson Davis should first be put
upon his trial betore a competent court and
jury for the crime of treason, he was advised
by the law officer of the Government that
the most proper place for such trial was in
the State of Virginia. That State is within
the judicial circuit assigned to tbe Chief Jus
tice of the Supreme Court, who has held no
court there since the apprehension of Davis,
and who declines, for an indefinite period, to
hold aoy court there. The matters above
stated are, so far as I am informed, the rea
sons for holding Jefferson Davis in confine
ment, and why he has not been brought to
^Fourth—Beside Jefferson Davis,the follow
ing persons, who acted as officers of the
rebel government, are imprisoned, to-wit:
Clement C. Clay at Fortress Monroe, charged
amoDg other things,with treason, with com
plicity in the murder of Mr. Lincoln, and
with organizing bands of pirates, robbers and
murderers in Canada, to burn the cities and
ravage the commerce and coasts of the loyal
States on the British frontier D. L Yulee,
at Fort Pulaski, charged with treason while
bolding a ‘eat in tbe Senate ot tbe Lulled
States, and with plotting to capture the forts
and arsenals of the United States, and with
iuciting war against the Government. S. R.
Mallory, at Fort Lafayette, charged with
treason, and with organizing and setting on
foot piratical expeditions against the united
States commerce and marine on the high
seas. Other officers of the so-called Con
federate Government, arrested and imprisoned
have been released on parole to abide the
action of the Government in reference to
their prosecution and trial for alleged of
fenses on their applications for amnesty and
pardon. Among these are G. A. Trenholm,
Secretary of the Treasury; John A. Camp
bell, Assistant Secretary of War; James A.
Seddon, Secretary of War; John H. Rea
gan, Postmaster General; R. M. T. Hunter,
Senator ; Alexander H. Stephens, Vica Pre
sident; and sundry other persons of less note.

actual hostilities ceased. When the Courts
are open and all laws can be peacefully ad-
ministered and enforced in those States whose
people rebelled agaiust the Government;
when thus peace shall have come in fact and
in law, the persons now held in mili
tary custody as prisoners of war, and who
may not have been tried and convicted for
offenses against the laws of war, should be
transferred into the custody of tbe civil au
thorities of the proper districts to be tried for
such high crimes and misdemeanors as may
be alleged against them. I think that it is
the plain duty ot the President to cause
criminal prosecutions to be instituted before
the proper tribunals, and at all proper times,
against some of those who were mainly in
strumental in inaugurating, and most con
spicuous in conducting the late hostilities. I
should regard it as a direful calamity if many
whom the’sword has spared, the law should
spare also, but I would deem it a more dire
ful calamity still, if the Executive, in per
forming bis constitutional duly ot. bringing
those persons before the bar ol justice to an
swer fgw their crimes, should violate the plain
raeanitkjj of the Constitution or infringe in the
lea9t particular the living spirit of that in
strument. I have the honor to be, most re

The Evans Gift Book Stork in Philadel
phia—The following is lrom the Philadel
phia correspondence of the Round Table :
Some years ago Evans' Gift Book Store
was accepted as one of the institutions ol thi9
city, and was conducted with a great deal of
firmness. After a prosperous reign of seven
or eight years, Mr. Evans came to grief, as
tbe saying is. He had been robbed on all
sides—plundered to a vast extent. One of
his employees, his confidential clerk, built
half a street with money which,he eventually
confessed, he had abstracted from letiters
addressed to Mr. Evans, and received by
mail. Mr. Evans eould have stood this, but
tbe war obliged him to close seven ot his
branch offices in the South, by which he was
a heavy loser. .
“Mr. Evans has manfully struggled since
his business eclipse; latterly as agent for
the Florence Sewing Machines. He' has just
re-commenced his old gift book business,
advertising liberally (which was the secret
of his former success), and is likely to make
a fortune again.”
Mr. Evans advertises books at very low
prices, with a gift, worth at the least 25
cents and liable to be worth $100. Cata
logues will be furnished by addressing him-
at 628 Chesnut street, Philadelphia. •

wounded on the 2d of January 1777, iu tbe
