PITTSBURG, June 23.—The venera
ble William Wilkins died this morn
ing at his residence, at Homewood
Station, at the ripe age of eighty-six
years. Mr. Wilkins has filled many
important positions. Ile was a Sen
ator in Congress from 1831 to 1834,
Minister to Russia in 1834, Secretary
of War while John C. Calhoun was
Secretary of State, and was on board
the Princeton when the "Peace
maker" exploded and Secretary Up
shiur was killed. Mr. Wilkins also
filled the office of Judge of the United
States District Court for Western
sm.. There are some mean people
in this world, in high places as well
as in low. The Republican newspa
per press has made a great ado for
the last week or ten days, about evi
dence given before the star-chamber
military commission sitting in Wash•
ington, in regard to a $25,000 check
received from Canada, last fall, by
the Hon. Benjamin Wood, of New
York. They have twisted it and
turned it so as to make it appear that
Mr. Wood received the money from
the rebel agents in Canada, and that
it was used for electioneering pur
poses by the Democrats. Although
the fact of the money having been re
ceived was known at the commence
ment of the trial, no attempt to
bring it officially before the commis
sion was made, (unless it was in secret
session,) until the very last day,
when the scandal was given in evi
dence, and the reception of testimo
my immediately closed thereafter,
thus debarring reply or explanation.
Mr. Wood immediately telegraphed
to Stanton that if he wax wanted he
would immediately proceed to Wash-
ington. But no reply from Stanton.
He then telegraphed to Hunter, the
President of the commission, who
was also kind enough not to .reply,
such is the eharaqer of the men now
sitting and deciding on the life or
death of their fellow men at Wash
ington. The money that Mr. Wood
received was merely a business trans
action with Candada, such as takes
place every day between wealthy
and enterprising men, and had noth
ing at all to do with politics or the
rebellion, and Stanton, Hunter and
their clique knew it, but the chance
was too good to injure a political op
ponent not to take advantage of it.—
They did, and meanly enough too.
A party that requires such bolster
ing and trickstering to keep it up
should speedily go to the bow-vows,
as it is going just now.

A GRAND JURY INSTRUCTED AS TO I
DIU THE MEMBERS OF MILITARY
Judge Bond, of Baltimore, at the
opening of the usual Criminal Court
of the city, which is now in session
there, thus charged the Grand
Jury in relation to usurpations of pow
er by the military tribunals which
hold their session in that city :
call your attention also, gentle
men, to Article 21, of the Declaration
of Rights of Maryland,in these words:
"That in all criminal prosecutions

the witnesses for and against him on
oath ; and to speedy trial by an im
partial jury, without whose unani
mous consent he ought not be found
guilty ;" and to state that it has come
to my knowledge that • here, where
the United States Court presided over
by Chief Justice Chase, has always
been unimpeded, and where the Mar
shal of the United States, appointed
by the President, selects the jurors,
irresponsible and unlawfill military
commissions attempt to criminal ju
risdiction over citizens of this State,
not in the military or naval service of
the United States nor in the militia,
who are charged with offences not
known to the law, o; with crime for
which the ririode of trial and punish
ments are provided by statue in the
courts of the land.
That this is not done by the para
mount authority of the United States,
your attention is directed to article
V. of the Constitution of the United
States, which says : "No persons
shall be held to answer for a capital
or otherwise infamous crime unless
on a presentment or indictment of a
Grand Jury except in cases arising
in the land or naval forces or in the
militia when in actual service in time
of war or public danger.
Such persons exercising such un
lawful jurisdiction are liable to indict
ment ,by you, as wet! as responsible
in civil actions to the parties injured.
Judge Bond has put the case most
admirably, and there is no man of
candor - and sense who will not admit
the correctness of his positions. The
manner in which he proposes to ap-
ply the remedy is the pt-oper one.—
Let some of these officials be regular
ly indicted and put upon trial for
a violation of the law and we shall
see whether the Supreme Court of
the United States has any decency
or dignity left. If it has, it cannot
help but sustain the State Courts in
their efforts to save the fundamental
law of the land from further open
and shameless violation..

INDEPENDENCE OF THE UNITED STATES,
JULY 4, 1776
When, in the course of human events, it be
comes necessary for one people to dissolve the
political bands which have connected them with
another, and to assume, among the powers of the
earth, the separate and equal station to which
the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle
them, a decent respect to the opinions of man
kind requires that they should declare the causes
which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that
all men are created equal; that they are'endowed
by their Creator with certain unalienable rights;
that among these, are life, liberty, and the pur
suit of happiness. That, to secure these rights,
governments ate instituted among men, deriving
their just powers from the consent of the govern
ed; that, whenever any form of government
becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right
of the people to alter or abolish it, and to insti
a new government, laying its foundation on
such principles, and organizing its powers in
snob form, as to them shall 648111 most likely to
effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, in
deed, will dictate that governments long estab
lished, should not be changed for light and
transient causes; and accordingly, allexperience
bath shown, that mankind are more disposed to
suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right
themselves,by abolishing the forms to which
they are accustomed. But, when a long train of
abuses and - usurpations, pursuing invariably the
same object, evinces a design to reduce them
under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is
their duty, to throve off such government, and to
provide new guards for their future security.—

it is natural to question whether it is

time to come. It is marvellous that
men who pretend._ to deal in politics,

But is not this idea rather dubious ?
What is likely to be the influence
over negroes voting? Who that re
members old times in New York, can
forget that negriies are very apt to
vote with their masters. Men who
imagine that there is to be a negro
paradise at the South, where the ne
gro will be an independent voter, act
ing on high moral principle, unsway
ed by sordid and worldly influences,
are very foolish men. If the issues

machinery is strong and active, its
wily operators are• wide awake, its
spoil-seekers are as'Vi Heinously shrewd
as ever, its honest.men are as firm in
their adherence to old doctrines and
principles as they were in the days

party is a great element in the future
of the country.

in the future may be seen by a single
suggestion. We heard a converse.

THE GOLD OF THE RICHMOND BANKS.
PARTICULARS OF THE GREAT ROBBERY-
[From the Augusta (Ga.) Transcript,'
A few days since two of the officers
of the Richmond banks, whose assets
were removed from that, city upon
the evacuation in April, - reached
Washington, in this State. They
were empowered by the authorities
to remove their effects, consisting of
$326,000 specie, to the capital of Vir
ginia.. Procuring teams and a guard
of twelve men these gentlemen set
out upon their return home, intend
ing to take the railroad iat Cheater,
At We - ends ofilie first day's jour-
ney they, encamped on the grounds
of Mrs._lllorse, eighteen miles from
Washington, and three from the Sa
vannah river. The officers retired
.and the guard fell asleep. About
midnight, a party of twenty mounted
men, who were evidently aware of
the value of the train, suddenly.dash
ed upon it; and the guards surrended
without firing a gun or making the
slightest show of resistance. The
freebooters immediately went to
work bursting open the specie- kegs
and helping themselves to the glitter
ing contents. One fellow it is related
had a large leathern haversack,
which he filled, but just as he was
mounting his horse, the straps gave
way, and the precious metal fell
clinking to the ground. He eagerly .
scraped up the gold and sand, leaving
a number of pieces, and placing the
coin, in a, .bag, rode off.. The ~ next
morning a negro teamster found five
dollar pieces scattered in profusion
_all about the ground.
Some - two hundred thousand dol.
lars were , stelen, leaving about one
hundred and twenty thousand. • With
this amount the bank officers journey.
ed on, sadder, but wiser men. Upon'
reaching Abbeyville, South Carolina,
they offered a reward of twenty
thousand dollars for the recovery of
the property. The robbers are sup
posed to be paroled soldiers, who fol
lowed the train from Washington.—
It is singular that, in the present de
moralized state of the country, the
gentlemen in charge made no secret
of their. valuable possessions ;
did they use any extraordinary
measures of precaution to L preserVe
the property. . •
son shows excellent wisdom in ap.
pointing loyal Southern men to offi
cial positions in the South. Those
Northern citizens who think the safe
ty of the country depends on their
getting such pieces and enriching
themselves by speculation in cotton
and tobacco are naturally much
aggrieved, and will he among the
loudest howlers of the new radica
opposition. But the country is sat
isfied. Everybody aces that nothing
could tend more to perpetuate the
alienation of the Southern people
than to send a lot of greedy North
