More Cow Sfealiso.—On Monday morning
last about an hour before day, a cow belonging to
Col. Cumming, chief marshal, was killed in a lot
adjoining his. The hind quarters were taken, and
one of them was traced to the store of a Mr. Taber,
near Findlay’s foundry. He gave bond to the
amount of $1000 to appear at tbe superior court in

Mr. M’Arthur’s cow was killed near Dr. Thomp

Soldiers’ and Sailors’ League.
Washington, Oct. 21.—The soldiers’ and
sailors’ league last night adopted resolutions
that the soldiers and sailors of the countrv
unite to press on the _ govemment their jus?
claims, and call a national convention to meet
on the 4th’ Monday in January next, for the
purpose of effecting a permanent organization
and urge on congress and the departments
the justice of giving the preference in employ
ment to men who have honorably served
their country as soldiers and sailors. It will
be recollected that one, perhaps both branch
es of congress, at their late session, passed
resolutions to support the above, but recently
the secretary of the treasury issued a circular,
clearly intimating, that applications from
those who have been disabled in military arid
naval service be investigated.

The President on Reconstruction.
New Yohk, Oct. 23.—The substance of
President Johnson’s remarks on tbe subject
of reconstruction in the Southern States, dur
ing a recent private interview with him, is
given, with the president’s approval, by Maj.
George L. Steams,' of Massachusetts.’ The
president, in reply to the remark that the
democrats claimed that he had gone over to
them, intimated that the democratic party
had discovered that he was in advance of it,
and that it was now trying to seem up’ to his
standard, and he hoped it would succeed in
so doing. He re-enunciated his doctrine,
that, notwithstanding the secession of certain
States, they were never out of the Union, but,
by their rebellious course, they had forfeited
their civil government, to reconstruct the
machinery of which, ad soon as possible, he
considers .the chief duty of the time. This,
he snys, cannot be done in a moment, but
such great and happy progress is being made,
in it; that the results sometimes appear to
him like a .dream,, lie did not expect to for
ever deprive of their former civil rights, even
a majority of those who were excluded in the
amnesty proclamation; but he intended that
they should sue for pardon, and thus realize
the enormity of their crimes.
He is in favor of allowing those negros who
served in the army, those wlio can read and
write, and those who 1 are possessed of certain
qualifications, to vote, but does not think it
politic, or that he has a right to force these
conditions on the white people of the South,
though lie believes they will, ere long, con
cede this privilege to the freedmen. The
President also favors basing representation
upon the number of qualified voters, instead
of the population, as at present.
Fenian Excitement in Canada.
New York, Oct. 23.—The Herald's Toron
to correspondent says, the members of the
Provincial government, and their supporters
in Canada, are in a state of great agitation in
regard to the Fenian movement. A Fenian
organization has been known to exist there
for years, but has occasioned but little con
cern until the occurrence of recent events.—
England, Ireland, and the Canadian govern
ment have, it is said, organized and .distribu
ted throughout the province a force of spies.
Great activity is reported to prevail in mili
tary affairs.; changes in the disposition of
troops are being made, garrisons strengthened
in regions where the Irish predominate, and
an investigation of the loyalty of the officers
and soldiers instituted. Arms are being
distributed for the use of citizens known to
oppose Fenian designs. Custom authorities
are nervous over the recent large importation
of ammunition, which is believed will ulti
mately find its way into the hands of the Fe
nians. The present movement in Ireland is
merely a ruse, and will be a grand design
when England has thrown into Ireland the
troops, the order in this country shall seize
Canada, and declare it an independent State,
and place it under protection of the United
The Earthquake in California.
New York, Oct. 23.—A dispatch from J.

Henry Ward Beecher’s Sermon on Public
New York, Oct. 23.—Henry Ward Beech
er yesterday delivered a sermon in which he
gave in his unqualified endorsement of Presi
dent Johnson and his reconstruction policy;
urged forbearance and kindness toward the
South; insisting they must regulate negro
suffrage for themselves; discountenanced any
interference; and claimed we must have con
fidence in the loyal professions of the South
erners and that their self-respect must not' be
offended. He also puts forth kind words for

that the dead there were not indiscriminately
and heedlessly buried, as has been charged.
Mysterious Woman in New York.—
The New York World, in an article on the
Central Park, has the following:
Among the talk of the patrons on the turf
in the track is one upon the celebrated “ La
dy of the Dawn.” She is described as beta,
very beautiful, but of strange pallidness an!
silence. She enters the park at the earliest
hour of the morning, and rides rapidly up
the most secluded bndle-paths, never accom
panied by any one, and refusing to speak or
halt with anybody. She has always worn a
coal black hat, plume, and skirt, and dark
gloves, but she is without a riding whip.—
Aiter a half hour’s ride she emerges, and is
never seen to enter the park gates at any oth
er time of the day. Her countenance is very
melancholy; nobody seems to know her; she
is so much of a mystery that the policeman
only call her the “ Lady of the Dawn.”
MR. ST*PHE!«rtrf«iWW YORK.
It seems that Megans, Steji^ns and Reagan
were lionized in New York. The World of
the 19th, says; v ■ " :5 - ' - M '
The announcement in yesterday’s World of
the arrival of Alexander H. Stephens and
John C. Reagan had the effect of drawing
together at the Astor House, drying the day,
crowds of persons desirous of seeing them.
From as early an hour as 9' o’clock in the
morning till late in the evening, messengers
in attendance at the office of the hotel had
much to do to deliver all the cards of the
visitors to Mr. Stephens, and to answer the
various questions of tliq curious loiterers in
the hall. It wdiiltTbe' impossible to’convey
any idea of thq grqajydesire.inaiufested by. all
who came into the ante-rooms, and walked
to and fro into the corridors, to see the ex-
Confederate vice-president. (Those who had
read the World in the. morning, and whose
faculties for-remembering-'occurrences and
descriptions, were about as good as the gen
tleman who owes his tailor a small amount
but always manages-to forget it, remembered
that bis hair was white, and that he carried
a cane; and, of course, every man with hoary
locks and walking-stick that passed by was
certain to be pointed' but as being, in all
probability, Mr. Stephens. Indeed, the curi
osity tp see the latter gentleman bordered,'
in . some cases, bn the ridjeujous. T?qr
instance, in one of the ante-rooms,
the entrance to which afforded to
the occupant a favorable view“of all persons
passing through the corridors, an old gentle
man, who, to all appearances, was studiously
engaged in perusing the columns of the morn
ing newspaper, at every Step heard, sounding
on the marble floor of the hail would peer
over the top of his paper through a huge
pair of gold spectacles that were carefully
ensconsed upon a nasal organ of no mean
dimensions, and survey the passer-by with
tlie^ most intense scrutiny. This done, lie
►would then resmne^his^rcqding with an a ' r
that said plainfy* enough, ® You’re’-not the
man.” During the entire afternoon, the old
gent remained in,his quasi observatory posi;
tion, and the last our reporter.-sAw of him
was in one of the upper halls in search, as
he bruskly told one of the attendants, of
“ room No. 129,” and'there, no doubt, his
perseverance of the day was rewarded by
meeting the object of ids',admiration—Mr.
Stephens. '-'itillCbtitiJ ill lolLo-A
This instance will serve to show with what
perseverance some of the calif rs at the Astor
House waited yestefSay Hlhtirtlfej^hs’d been
successful in. obtaining*a sight of the ex-in
mate of, F.ort Warren. The-latter gentleman
—even though he may have'felt a certain de
gree of gratiflcatiori'at : being sd sought after
by those, by-gones being by-gohes, who saw
in his person the same man whoc-shod Such
lustre as a statesman in our national .sen
ate—must have found,ill molbgrecable task
to respond,to the proffered palms of so great
a crowd. Jfow he managed to stand it so
long as he did, is . a mystery, to many,
for from morning till evening the hinges of
tin- door^i his room would scarcely move to
offer egress to one individual, before two oth
ers would eiitet ill tiled hii j|)ftee. ; , At onfe
time during the day, however, he'-was ‘ob
liged to find a little peace and quiet by'flight,
and while numbers were impatiently-await
ing their turn to see him, he was enabled to
escape by a private entrapoe tp a carriage in
the street, and was thus relieved for,a.time
from the importunities .of the numerous host
of persons whom curiosity ni Admiration had
emboldened to call upon him. His return to
the hotel, however, was but a' return to the
ordeal he.souglijt to avoidjby a piecq of; strat-
1 egy which'held' good omy while it ’ lasted.
Up.to now about 200 gentlemen and several
ladies had btM renewed’ by Mr. Stephens,
among the more prominent of whom were
Senator Wils6h-'oFJMhys.y ! G<oi£&-.-T. Curfft,-
Esq., Hon. James Brooks, Leroy Wiley, Esq.,
and Hon.- Benjamili" Wood. 'Sir. Stephens;
evidently recovered bv. a good night’s, fesp
from the fatigues of his journey, fr'Ojn Boston,
was in the happiest of moods, and received
all who called upon him with that -graceful
courtesy and urbanity of tnhriner which come
so natural to him. Every ohe of the Visitors,
not,.excepting those, wlioiji, curiosity; solely
had prompted to call on him, and who may
not have entertained the!best ofifeeliiigs to
ward Mr. Stephens as a Southerner, left high
ly pleased with their visit, and no doubt wiser
in tbe knowledge that two men ean differ from
each,’other.in opinion‘without necessarily be
ing enemies. Sonjo of the gentlepigp, who
called on Mr. Stephens conversed very freely
on the questions tbatbhtsve arisen, nnd'that
will, as a natural edict of the poliev of the
administration, arise to fie settled between
the North and South before lasting peace and
harmony can be. considered as fully establish

would be certain to follow the present

as Mr. Reagan expressed it, doing all lie

as before the w ( sr. He had, he said, a diffi
cult task to perform, and if ncrwlies w*itH the

The Virginia military institute is now a
heap of nuns. A correspondent of the New
York Hews says the trustees had made ar
rangements to resume the exercise of the
school on the 1st of October, prepared tem
porary buildings for the purpose, and filled
with suitable professora the chairs made va
cant by the fall of Stonewall Jackson, Gen.
Rodes, and Colonel Crutchfield (formerly
Jackson’s chief of artillery). There was a
prospect of a large number of cadets, when
suddenly an order comes from “headquarters,
department of Virginia,” abolishing the
military feature of the institute, which in
effect abolished the school itself.
A, Canadian paper says that orders have
been received by the Belgian for the purchase
of oats and barley in Canada, for the home
market. This is a new feature of the grain
trade, rendered, necessary by the short crops
this year in Europe and the United States;
and, in view of the probable abrogation of
the reciprocity treaty next March, is a pleas
ant feature. It is estimated that the differ
ence between the price of oats and barley in
England and Canada, at the present time, is
sufficiently large to make a trade between the
two countries profitable to the Canadian pro

i " The Cotton Region.
! A’ West Tennessee exchange, in the course
of some interesting, remarks on cotton culture,
; says that the older inhabitants of the Missis
sippi Valley agree that the center of the cot
ton region advances steadily up the Missis
sippi Tiver; that the productiveness of the
linds increase slowly but surely; that the
lands of West Tennessee, the comparatively
poor hills in the neighborhood of LaGrange,
increased 75 per cent. It expects (if cotton
continues to command present prices) to see
the prairiesof Central Illinois yet “whitened
.by the snowy staple.”
In'noticing the prediction, the Murfrees
boro’ Monitor says:
1 In confirmation of the idea advanced we
fan say-(and the -farmers of Rutherford and
statistics of the county will sustain the asser
tion) that the cotton crops of Rutherford, the
quantity produced per acre have, all things
equal, constantly increased. We recollect
.when six hundred pounds per ncre vvas con
sidered a very fair crop. How, unless from
eight to ten hundred is made, it is considered a
failure. An old friend, a cotton farmer, told
us to-day that he made on the few acres he
planted last year a bale to the acre, and that
he would make this year, notwithstanding the
drought, seven dr eight hundred-pounds. We
have, therefore, ascribed the increased pro
ductiveness of the land per acre to improved
modes of culture, but the principle stated in
tiio Argus leads us to doubt whether it can be
ascribed entirely to that cause.
Whatever the cause, it is a fact of import
ance, and deserves consideration at the hands
of those who propose to invest in Southern
lands, whether for culture or speculation.
We do not regard this as a matter of con
jecture at all. There is a great principle at
the bottom of it. So soon as free labor shall
be firmly established in the South, the mar
kets of the world will be supplied with a
better, more abundant, and more profitable
article of cotton than they ever had before.
The whole labor system of the South in for-
. mer times was a political, social, agricultural
and financial blunder: And there is nothing
which so quickly provokes a sensible man’s
temper as to read a rigmarole of lugubrious
predictions in some half-fledged, slave-ridden
Mississippi journal, on the collapse of the
cotton interest under the barbarizing influ.
ence of free labor. The old slave monopoly,
Consisting of some 300,000 members, has in
deed collapsed, but the genuine cotton in
terest, in an agricultural and commercial
point of view, is just taking a fresh, healthy
start in a career of prosperity which will be
safe and permanent As to the cotton region
traveling north, that is all moonshine, unless
the climate changes.—Hashville Press and

The Wandering Jew.—The legend of
the Jew ever wandering and never dying,
even from the crucifixion of Jesus to tho
present day; is spread over many European
countries. The accounts, however, as in all
fables; do not agree. One version is this:—
When Jesus was lead to death, oppressed,by
the weight of the cross, he wished to rest
near the house of Ahasucrus. This man,
however, rallied forth and thrust him away.
Jesus turned toward him, saying: “I shall
rest, but thou shalt move on till I return.”—
And from that time he has had no rest, and
i3 obliged incessantly to wander about. An
other version is that given by Matthew, of
Paris, a monk of the thirteenth century:—
When Jesus was lead from the tribunal of.
Pilate to death, the door-keeper, named Car-
taffiiouB pushed him from behind with bis
foot, saying, “walk on, Jesus, quickly, why
(lost thou tarry?” Jesus looked upon him,
and said, “ I walk on, hut thou shalt tarty till
I come.” And this man, still alive, wander*
from place to place in constant dread of the
wrath to come. A third legend adds that
this wanderer falls sick every hundred years,
but recovers and renews his strength; hence,
it is, that after so many centuries, he does
not look older than a septuagenarian. Thus
much for the legends. Not one of the an
cient writers mention this wanderer. The
first who reports such a thing is a monk of
the thirteenth century, when as it was known,
the world was full of pious frauds, even to
disgust. However, the story has spread far
and wide, so that it has become a proverb,
“ He runs about like a wandering Jew.”

Many years of jny past life have been expen

been spared to accomplish this salutary pur

public generally, at tho lowest possible , market
price, and in such quantities as might suit their
convenience, a truly genuine imported article.
Twenty-five years’ business transactions with
the largest and mostrcspectable exporting houses

unsurpassed facilities for supplying our home
