We have seen in our day a good deal of party jugg ery and a good many devices concocted by partisan leaders to deceive the masses of the people, but we have witness ed nothing that surpasses the anxiety, the labor and devices of the JOHNSON organs and leaders to deceive each other, and the public, in regard to the standing of the President with the union voters of the na tion. In one place it is asserted that all the people are for JOHNSON and " my poli cy." In another "nearlyall." In the third, " with few exceptions," and in the last place it is held "that a few may be found who oppose the restoration measures of JOHNSON," and thus the sentiments of the people in the four cardenal points ol the country, are held to be devotedly, nay en thusiastically, attached to the President. That, however, which is a little marvellous about this busiuess, is the lact, that while this boasting is going on among the ad herents of "my policy,"—and this is con fined to the office-expectants and democrats —there are many grave charges about Congress misleading the honest voters. If all the people are supporting JOHNSON, how can they be under theinfiuence ol Congress? Why too, if the patriotic masses are siding with the President, is there such an anxie ty to get up meetings in his favor, and so many, and such bold falsehoods in respect to their size and enthusiasm ? If the peo ple are all for JOHNSON, for whose eyes are these immense and spirited meetings her alded forth in glowing capitals ? Some body is to be influenced by them, and pray who is it, if the people are all right al ready ? AL, Messrs, Democrats and Com pany, "your zeal o'erleaps your discretion,' and the weakness of your cause is plainly seen through the flimsy gause behind which you act. It will not do. The people are not caught in that way ; and it has been tried tin hundredth time, and the hundredth time it has disappointed the knaves who It is a wonder too, that sooid a politician as JOHNSON is, should rely 011 such shallow devices. He must know their entire worth lessuess : or, is he blinded by the infatua tion that he is the greatest man living, or his rage ? He is following, as near as the circumstances of the case will admit, in the footsteps of JOHN TYLER, the worst used up man that ever left the Presidency of the United States, except JAMES BUCHANAN ; and how did JOHN TYLER ruin himself so com pletely ? By taking counsel from demo crats, and making war on those who had elected him to the position he held. lie vetoed the party measures just as JOHNSON IS doing. lie quarreled with the leaders of his party in Congress. He used his patron age to defeat the measures ot the party, and injure its leaders. He called around him those who had opposed his election and abused him without stint. He subsidised with the government patronage the " con servatives and their papers"—and they were as numerous then as now—and these bought-up interests, lavished abuse without incisure on CLAY, BUTTS, and others of that class, whom the President could not control. All this while the democratic press was profuse, lavish of its fulsome adulations of JOHN TYLER for his manly independence of those who made him what he was, just as the same press is now doing with JOHNSON. They made him believe he would be re-elec ed, aud the greatest of all the Presidents ; and when they had done using him, and got fr 111 him all they could, they dropt him like a hot potato, and laughed at him for his folly. This same game is being played with poor JOHNSON, to the country's injury, ! and his own disgrace. History is repeating j itself, and instead of one, the country is to have two Presidents who defeated the measures on which they were elected, earn ing for themselves infamy by their base be trayal. THE REIGN OF TERROR IN THE SOUTH.—Com mercial men traveling in the South, write to their friends in various parts ol the North, that the condition of business is at a dis cotiraging ebb, and that every dollar now owed by merchants in the late rebel States, ! will be repudiated until its election is forced i by the military authority of the National j Government. In Tennessee, Alabama,Mis | sisippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas,the magistrates and police forces in every town- I ship and city, are composed entirely of ex rebels or those who sympathized with the rebellion. With the local authority thus in the hands of the men who have engaged in an armed conflict with the National Gov ernment, citizens who were Union men are treated as traitors. In fact, in the regions named there are 110 traitors except those who would not participate in the fight for the Confederacy. Andrew Johnson is busy par doning rebels, but we have yet to learn of a rebel in the South who has pardoned a Southern Union man. The rebels who were lately in arms openly nurse their hate of the North, boldly declare that no man can live in peace in the South who refused to fight for the Confederacy. This feeling now renders life and property insecure in every Soutlieru State, while the security afforded by the army is beiug weakened by the re moval of officers who believe in making treason odious. Without the authority of law Presi dent Johnson, among his earliest acts of reconstruction, ordered the sale of Govern ment railroads and railroad runuing stock, iron and materials to au enormous amount to Southern men, on credit; he directed the (Quartermasters in charge to turn over the property, and take the purchasers' notes, payable monthly, up to two years ; the val ue of the property thus nominally sold, but in reality given away, was probably $200,- 000,000. Of course the notes, as they fell due, were not paid, and it was never inten-1 ded I hey should be paid. They are under' protest here to millions. The Government holds chat '" mortgages on property, all in Rebel hand ; that has been consumed in large part ; in part has changed bauds : and the balance of which is used in defiant disregard of the contract of purchase. The l'resideut refuses to permit proceedings to compel payment, or to recover possession of any portion of this immense amount of the public property. THE MEMPHIS RIOTS. —The Secretary o! War has sent to the House, in compliance with a resolution of that body, the report of General Stoneman relative to the recent Memphis riots. The latter says that upon investigation by the commission,it appears there were killed out-right twenty-four ne groes, eight of whom were discharged sol diers. The 3d colored artillery had been stationed at Memphis since its organization and consequently were not under the best jof discipline. Large numbers of the men had what they call families living in South Memphis, contiguous to the fort in which the soldiers were stationed. These soldiers had been used as the in strumeuts to execute the orders of Govern. ment agents, such as provost marshals, bu reau agents, etc., and consequently had been more or less brought directly in con. tact with the law-breaking port ion of the community, and the police, which is far from being compo ted of the best class of resi dents here, but principally of Irishmen,who consider the negro as his competitor and his natural enemy. Many negro soldiers have,from time to time,been arrested by the police, and many whites, including some of j the police, have been arrested by the negro soldiers, and in both cases those arrested ; have not unfrequently been treated with a harshness altogether unnecessary. After giving the particulars of the riot, General Stoneman concludes by saying : ''The rioters were composed of the police, firemen and rabble, and .eg ro-haters in general, with a sprinkling of Yankee ha" tors, all led on and encouraged by dema ' gogttes and office-hunters,and most of them under the influence id whisky." It appears in evidence before the commission that (hf glc ii. r .••infer of tin- city, made a | speech to the rioters, in w vrii he said : | ''We are not prepared, but. let its pupate 1 to clear every negro s—of a It—out of town." Very few paroled confederates were mixed up with the rioters on Tues day and Wednesday, the large portion be i ing registered voters. Who commenced j the iucendarism on Wednesday night re | mains to be developed. EUROPEAN EXCITEMENT Late foreign dispatches show the old | world is in great trouble. A fiiuyieial.pan ! ic has suddenly sprung up in England not I exceeding in intensity by any that has pre i vailed since 1825. The causes are not ful ly obvious, for foreign news of the week previous, though recording an increased stringency in the money market, seemed to anticipate no such serious results us have followed. But probably the steady depre ciation in the prices of most commodities for the last four or five months, with heavy losses in particular branches, and the in creasing perplexities in continental afi'airs, have been chiefly influential in bringing on the panic, which is said —as is always said of such crises—to have "no solid founda tion." But the end had not been reached at the date of the last, advices, though the crisis in London was fought to have been passed. With this uncertainty as to the precise nature and extent of the panic in England it is impossible to say what its effect will be here The rise in gold which has alrc-ady occurred was, of course, inevitable. The preliminary state of alfairs had tended to that, for specie has for some time been so urgently caked for by foreign bankers to strengthen their position, that nearly nine millions of gold were shipped from New Yoik last week. It was thought that this would give adequate relief abroad ; but now the prospect is uncertain. But with our present information we have no reason to regard the English panic, or its effects here, otherwise than temporary and of lim ited extent. The homeward current of our live-twenties is also liable to be still furth er checked by the disposition of the holders of other securities in Europe to resort to these, which cannot he affected by the hos tilities now likely at any moment to break out. In regard to this latter source of Euro pean trouble, it can only be said that tin prospect grows more gloomy every day.— Prussia, Austria and Italy have entered up on a course of mutual irritation,from which they seem to have but little ability or dis position to recede. The whole future ap parently depends upon the restraining in fluence of England, France and Russia,that is, when narrowed down to the actual facts of the case, upon the course of Louis Na poleon. This man is the arbiter of Europe. Ilis recently avowed detestation of the treaties of 1815 has not a very soothing sound ; but if, in consequence of it, he can bring about his long-cherished project of a European Congress, peace will probably be preserved; if not,the chances are heavily in favor of war. The following deserved tribute to our Member of Congress we fiud in the Montour American : " Among the most faithful of the Penn sylvania members, in adherence to the po litical policy of his party, and to the wish es of his constituents, and attention to the minutia- which make up the duties of a member of Congress, stands the member from your District—Hon. U. MERCUR. Be ing a thorough and discriminating lawyer, whose ability has passed sufficient tests, by his elevation to, and administration of the President Judgeship of his Judicial District, to entitle him to the commanding position and influence which he enjoys here ; he is at once classed among the leading and most influential members of the present Congress, prudent, he has not weakened his influence by over much talk ; yet, his words in the right place, have done much in shaping the legi lation of the present session, and every evidence indicates that before the close of the present Congress, he will become one of the foremost leading men of the House." tesT Anton Probst, the murderer of the Deering family at Philadelphia, will be ex? ecuted in that city 011 Friday of the present week. It is said that 110 special change is noted in his demeanor. DEATH OF LIEUT. GEN. SOOTT- Lieut. Gen. WINKIEI.D SCOTT died i. West Point a little alter 11 o'clock Tuesd;-2 morn ing. Few Americans will hear without emotion the announcement of the death of one who in years past has deserved so well of his country ; although, infirm as he had been for a long while, the news does not come upon us with the shock of a surprise. \Vinfield Scott was horn in Petersburg, Ya., June 13, 1786, and consequently at the time of his death lacked only two weeks of the age of 80. He was the grand sou of an adherent of the Pretender, who llred to America from the field of Culloden, and the son of Captain William Scott, an officer of the army of the Revolution. He was educated at William and Mary College, and after having devoted a short time to legal studies, removed to Charleston, with the intention of practicing there as a law yer. But the war with Great Britain was then imminent, and when hostilities seem ed on the eve of breaking out, young Scott, who once before on a similar alarm had ridden 25 miles by night an soon as heard a cry for volunteers, and appeared on par ado the next morning in borrowed uniform in the ranks of a dragoon regiment, threw down his books and hastened to Washing ton to ask for a commission. In April, 1808, a bill passed Congress authorizing the increase of the Regular Army by the addition of eight new regiments, and on the 3d of the next month Scott was ap pointed a Captain in one of them—the light artilery. The war came at last, in 1812, and Capt. Scott was promoted to the rank of lieut. j colonel, and ordered to the Niagara fron tier. Here he witnessed his first battle— ; the affair of Queenstown Hights—where I he commanded on the field during the latter j part of the day, and greatly distinguished himself. In the Spring of 1813 he returned ! to the frontier, with the rank of colonel and | the position of chief of staff to Gen. Dear : born. He commanded the American forces j which captured Fort George, on the 27ih j. .f May, when he was severely wounded. He shared in the abortive frontier campaign of "That unprincipled imbecile" (as be used t<> call him, ) Wilkinson, and when that was over, was sent, with the rank of brigadier general, to command a camp of instruction jat Buffalo. The value of his labors in this : place was strikingly displayed at the battle !of Chippewa, July 4, 1814, when, after a long series of disasters, the American arms aincd a victory. sin.ill in itself, but most imp utant in its moral < fleet. In this en gagement, as well as in the well-fought buttle <>l Lundy's L ine, about three weeks afterward, Scott had a gallant and promi nent share. In the latter action he was twice \v mndetl. He was immediately hre \ i lb d M tjur-Gi la ral, and Congress ordered a gold medal to be presented to him in tes timony of their appreciation of his distin guished services, "and of his uniform gal lantry and good conduct in sustaining the reputation of the arms ol the I nited States." He was offered the post of Secretary of War, but declined it. The peace which soon ensued gave him an opportunity to visit Europe, where he saw Paris during the allied occupation, and made many dis tinguished acquaintances. With the ex ception of the publication of his "General Regulations for the Army" in 1825, undone or two personal quarrels with Gen. Jack son aud others, which fortunately did not lead to hostile meetings, lie did nothing to bring himself much before the public until the outbreak of the Black Hawk war in 1832, when he was sent to the West in command of an army, but had no opportun ity of fighting. During the nulification troubles he commanded in Charleston. The hostilities with the Seminole Indians in Florida began in 1835, and Scott was or dered to the theatre of war, but was soon recalled and sent to the Creek country. His campaign here too was brief, and was closed by a court of inquiry, which decided fully in his favor. He attributed the sum moning ol tins court to the personal enmity of Gen. Jackson. In 1841 he became General-in-C' ief, on the death ot General McC'ornb. The Mexican war opened in May, 1846, with the battles of Palo Alto and Resaca de la l'aUna, followed by those of Monterey and Buc-na Vista, in September and Febru ary- -all won by Gen. Taylor. It was evi dent after the storming of Monterey, that hostilities, to be effective, must be carried iuto the interior of Mexico, and a new line of operations chosen, having the capitol for its objective. Tii army for this task was was placed under the command of Gen. Scott, who landed at Vera Cruz with 12,- 000 men, March 0, 1847 ; captured the city af'cr a bombardment <>f fifteen days ; and on the Bth of April began his march toward Mexico. The heights of Cerro Gordo,where Santa Anna had thrown his army across the American's path, where stormed with magnificent gallantry on the 18th ; Jalapa was taken on the 19th, Perote on the 22d, and Puebla on May 15. Here Gen. Scott was compelled to halt, and wait for rein forcements until Aug. 7. At the beginning "f September operations were resumed on the S. \V. side of the city. The wooded heights of Chapultepec, with the Molino del Key and the Cusa Mata, were stormed by Worth, (Jnitman and Pillow, September 13, and the same night the San Costue and Beieii gates were carried after heroic fight ing. The next morning the American army entered the city in triumph, and the war virtually at an end. The treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed March 2, 1848, and the troops soon afterwards evac uated the capital, having won the esteem of the citizens by their strict discipline and orderly conduct. The outbreak of the rebellion found Gen. Scott still at the head of the army, but in firm in health and no longer capable of di recting an active campaign. But he was frequently in consultation with the cabinet and military authorities at Washington. As early as October, 1860, he had urged President Buchanan to garrison the South ern forts, and he repeatedly begged leave to send such troops as he could reach to Charleston, Pensacola and Mobile harbors. Our readers will remember the controver sy on these matters which took place be tween him and ex-president Buchanan some time afterwards. On the 3d of March, 1861, he addressed a note to Mr. Seward a note of advice, in which he urged him, as the probable chief member of the new cabi net, to throw off the old designation of Re publicans and assume that of the Union party ; to adopt the Crittenden Compro mise, and to collect the import duties out side the ports of which the government had lost the command, or else to blockade them. He wanted no war in any case, and con cluded with these words : " Say to the seceded States—'Wayward sisters, depart in peace.'" On the 31st of October, 1861, having been a cripple aud unable to walk without assistance for three years, he retired from the army, President Lincoln and all the members of the cabinet waiting upon him to bid him farewell. By special act on congress he retained his full pay and air lowanceß. The general was a magnificent man physically, of almost gigantic stature, powerful aud well proportioned frame, and dignified aspect. His stately manners in clined now and then toward pomposity, and his acknowledged greatness in his own profession made him ofte i intolerent ; but lie was universally respected for his ster ling virtues no less than for his public ser vices. He spoke his mind so freely about people he disliked that he had enemies everywhere, but private frieuds will never be able to displace him from the exalted position he holds in the respect and grati tude of the American people. Gen. Scott was married in 1810 to Miss Mary Mayo, of Richmond, Va., who died in Rome in 1802. There were seven children by this marriage, of whom three daughters, we believe, are still living. FENIANH ! INVA SI O N OF CANA II A. BUFFALO, Friday, June 1, 1800. Notwithstanding the viligence ot the au thorities in this region, the United States steamer Michigan being under steam and having her ports open, and the fact that I the city is swarming with Canadian spies, j several regiments of Fenians crossed over J into Canada last night,including the troops from Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana, a regiment from Ohio, and a regiment from ! this city. At this point they crossed in canal-boats, ! drawn l y tugs, and when uearing the Can adiau side sent up wild Irish cheers, with the green Hag floating O'Neill, of the 13th Regiment, of Nashville, is in command at Fort Erie. A large number of persons are viewing ; the sight, from this shore. Col. O'Neil threatened to bayonet a man who attempted to appropriate to himself the use of a large woolen shawl found in a pub lic house. The Fenians say that no depredations j shall be permitted. The approach of a mounted Fenian cans- ; ed great terror and excitement among the | passengers and crew of the International j ferry-boat, to the merriment of lookers on , i upon the Buffalo side. All the telegraph wires to Canada are cut | on tho Canadian side except those via the Suspension Bridge. The agent of the Associated Press has left for the scene of operations. It is reported that the mail agent was fired upon this morning as he was crossing in a small boat. The Fenians are reported marching to ward the Suspension Bridge, 22 miles from here The latest accounts from the Fenian bat tle ground, given Saturday, left the con querors of Fort Eiie in a rather demora lized, because unfed and unreenforced, con dition. It appears, however, that at an early hour on Saturday morning, having burned the bridges at Frenchman's Creek and Miller's Point, the whole force was put in motion. They were pursued on the road-. toward Port Colborne bv a party of Regu lars, while another party of two companies ; occupied Fort Erie, and sent out skirmish ers in all directions. Seven miles up the ; lake,toward Port Colborne, near Ridgeway, the Regulars came up with the Fenians who were encamped in a bush. The col umn at once attacked them, the " (Queen's ! Own" firing the first shot. The fight now ■ became general, the Volunteers driving the Fenians. A number were killed on both sides. The volunteers behaved splendidly, rushing at the retreating Fenians with the | utmost gallantry. Of the forces engaged, there were about j 800 Canadian volunteers and toward 1,000 I Fenians. One authority state that two of the English troops were killed and a num ! her wounded,and that the Fenians suffered to a greater extent. At all events, there were about 00 taken prisoners nad carried to Fort Erie. Auother account says : "The Queen'B Own Company of volunteers came upon the Fenians this morning near Ridge way, a small station below here, and at tacked them at once. A general fight en sued, resulting in the withdrawl of the vol i unteers to await reenforcemeuts. A few | on both sides are reported to have fallen, hut there is trustworthy information of only one volunteer killed, viz : Ensign McEech ren. A few others are reported wounded." sTciu vlboertisemcnts.
