WEDNESDAY, MAY 23, 1860.
OEM. STEADMAN was suddenly con
verted to "My Policy." Less than a year
ago he arrived in Washington from North
western Georgia, where he was then serv
ing, an ultra radical; advocating the taw
lute necessity of conferring the right of
sulfrage on the negroes of the entire South.
It would ho impossible to state more strong
ly than he was then wont to do the wisdom
and Justice of this great measure, or to ex
{dint more conclusively the error and
danger of reorganizing the political corn.
enmities of that section upon any other
basis than that they should be exclusively
contmlied by loyal men, white or black, as
Andrew Johnson once expressed it.
A TRAVELP,R, writing to tile Chicago
J”urnal , Rape,
"At Pittsburgh a splendid improve
ment has just been made in the shape of a
new depot, built by the Port Wayne and
PemusylVititia Central Railroad Compa
nies, for the use of those roads, Not, how
ever, for their benefit exclusively, but also
for the convenience of the traveling public.
For connected with, and forming part of
this mammoth depot area first-class hotel
nod a restaurant, where passengers can al
ways find such refreshments as may seem
needful during either a brief or a protracted
sojourn in the smoky city."
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company, in
this improvement, has set an example
which is deserving of Imitation at all
important railway eentres.
IN Wisconsin, a man who had served in
the rebel army got elected Justice of the
Peace. His predecessor refused to hand
over the hooks to him, and hence an
opinion on the ease was drawn flout the
Attorney General, lie said :
"Having served as a volunteer in the
late rebel army, you have forfeited all po
litical rights under the United States Gov
ernment, and that Government can alone
restore them: Having placed yourself in
the attitude of an alien enemy to the Uni
ted States Government, you cannot exer.
cise the rights and privileges now accorded
to aliens who are not enemies. Not hay
ing the right to vote, you cannot hold
THE President has met with poorer suc
cess in Pennsylvania than in any other
State. He has not had a single vote in the
House save what he got from the Demo
crats, and thus far has not received the
open support of a single known Republican
paper. He is of course much annoyed at
the barren prospect. The fact is, it ist ery
bard to make a party out of patronage
alone,. and the engineers of the President
in Pennsylvania find it so every hour they

IN the Presbyterian GenendANse.:lll,iics
at tit. Louis, the main opposition to re
union comes front aged members who have
curried their griefs along the journey of
life with the young. A. notable exception
is found in Dr. BIIECKIERIDOS. The
younger menhersof both branches strongly
incline to come together. "It isa consum
mation most devoutly to be wished."
A WANFIINGTON correspondent says that
there is, at the Capitol, growing distrust
of Secretary McCulloch. Ile is regarded
as one of the bitterest enemies or the loyal
majority In Congress in the Cabinet. Be

as to financial matters, while the general
conviction is, that the work is rather more
than the Secretary can stagger wider.
lx Washington it is reported and genet..
ally accredited, that contributions have been
made by wealthy rebels of Baltimore,
Washington and other Southern cities, of
large sums of money for the purpose of
corrupting members of Northern Legiala

U. S. Senate's who will support the Presi

thathe had notsucceeded. We gave some
of our reasons for that opinion. The fail

ALTHOUGH hundreds of thousands of
documents have been circulated among the
people to induce them to support "my
policy," daily intelligence from the States,
North and South, confirms the prediction
that the only * success that would crown
such efforts would he the successful expen

Hostetter's Stomach Bitters
Read the following letter from E. Bourn,
well known citizen of Pittsburgh, Pa.:
Prrrar non, May 10th, Iser,
Boetel ter Smith—Gentlemen: Der
Mg a visit in the west last fall, I contracted
chill, and fever which brought me to my bed
and filially terminated (n typhoid fever, and
confined me to my roots for several months,
during which time I amt physically so pros
trated that I almost despaired of ever recover
ing my health; having entirely lost my appe
tite fordays, not being able to eat a morsel,
added to which I was much distressed with a
reeling sensation in my head, and passed many
sleepless nights—all from debility caused by
my proetra to condition, brought about by the
fever. At this stage of my condition a friend
recommended me to use your celebrated sto
mach Bitters, but being morally opposed to
the use of stimulants In any. form, I at first de
clined, but afterwards yielded my preJudires
and, atter taking the medicine for several
weeks, us directed my appetite returned and
with it f am rapidly regaining my former
strength and vigor. My Bleep, (from the loss
of which I had mittens' much., has never been
hotter then It is now, and the reeling sensa
tion (before alluded to,) has entirely left me.
Irre bow la e r ls a r w e h nicohw

am glad to say that I feel myself a new man
and louder you this testimoniatof my appre
elation of your valuable preparation in order
that others suffering as I have may avail
teetuselves of its virtues, which proindice
prevented me fromealo t ang for so long
a period. I may shoo add tmy physician,
after seeing the beneficial effect your Bitters
lad on me, recommended that I use them reg
ularly. Yours, very respeetftilly,

Tt Callao are published. The Peruvians had
nine batteries, mounted with thirty-two poun
der guns,• 300-pounder Annstrongs and io.
pounder Blakely rifles, besides the iromeleds
Leo and Virginia, and three Warden gun boats.
In less than half en hour the Villa do Madrid
had her motive power deranged, and was
towed out of the action. The Berengnell
moved out twenty minutes later, having re
ceived heavy rifled shot near the water line,
leaking badly, and was obliged to ca
reen to prevent sinking. At half mist two
the Blanca and litesolumon retired to repair
Injuries, but soon returned to their former
position, and with the rest of the fleet, except
the two first named, continued to fight to the
end of the action. Boon after the commence
ment of the battle, a Peruvian Indent, con
taining two thirty-pounder Annstrongs, was
blown tql, dltimantiLag the guns and killing
and wounding every one in the vicinity. in
another battery a lan-pounder Armstrong was
dismantled at the first fire. With this excep
tion the fire of the Peruvian batteries was
heavy and well directed, and every moment
became more fataliand destructive. Soon
after five o'clock the Spanlarda retired, the
batteries firing till they were out of range.
The last gun was fired by the Monitor Victoria.
The Peruvians are said - to have lost sixty
killed and one hundred and seventy wounded.
The shot disabling toe steamship of Villa de
Madrid killed eighteen and wounded twenty
one, and it was thought therefore, that the
total loss of the.Spanfah exceeded that of the
Peruviana. That vessel had eight stint holes
in her sides. The Blanca was struck forty
times, and others nearly as many. The Me
mancia, being iron clad, Mime off very well,
but one eight-Inch rile prOjectile pierced her
five and a half: inch iron plating and went
partly through the wooden bar-king. She was
fought seas to receive the fire at an angle,
hence her plating ceased. the shot to glance.
The officers of the Vanderbilt think the Span
ish are in no condition to renew the attack.
They bail only solid shot, so there was but lit
tle Injured.

A Bill and Written Report
W want:zeros, May 22.—Mr. Wilson, tram the
Committee on Military Affairs, and the Militia
to which was referred &Mate hill, So. 207, to
provide for the equalization of noun ties to the
soldiers In the late war of the rebellion, pre
sented a bill nada wiltten report. The report
says it has ever been the policy of the troy
ernment of the United States to keep a small
standing army in time of peace, and to rely
upon the patriotism of the citizens to all the
ranks of the military forces In time of war.
Tire experience of three quarters of a century
has amply vindicated the wisdom of this pol
icy. Every citizen of the United States liable
to do military duty, is Justly held to owe the
Government In time of public danger, in re
tarn for the protection given him, his blol
and If need be his life. W bile the citlzenflpuTfl,
military service to his eralatry the Mani ) ," In
return Is sacredly bound to recognize a
tly reward the military services rendeSh, by
the citizen.

Heavy Robbery—Tobacco Moro Cleaned
For some time past our city has enjoyed ojl

burglars, and we had been led to believe
that the thieves had either all been sent to
the penitentiary by the net criminal court, or
had quit the city for the city's good. It ap
pears, however, that we have a few burglars
at large, as a during and successful robbery
was committed at about one o'clock yesterday ]
morning, on Wylie street. Through the nave
int grating of the vault of the tobacco afore
occupied by George Metzner, some thieves ob..
tabled ingress into the cellar. They proceed

open a door leading into the store room. On
obtaining admittance they Immediately pro
ceeded to take stock according 1.0 their own
ideas. They helped themselves to several
hundred dollars , worth of tine cigars and
chewing tobacco, They next burst open
the money drawer, and obtained a
Igw dollar, in torn scr ip. The proprietor had
pasted upon the inside of his show cases some
twentyllollars In gold and sliver coins, which
the thieves approprlated. They unlocked is

their stolen plunder through aback alley. Mr.

ification be made in the subordinate stand
ards of the Church in regard to the matter of
Psalmody. It asks also that the Synod will
take immediate action In order to enter Into
organic union with other branches of the
Presbyterian Church. It complains of the in
adequacy of ministers' salaries to support
themselves and their families, and urges upon
synod the importance of giving a deliverance
on the subject.
That part of the report 'which touched on
the subject of Psalmody was referred to a
special committee consisting of one from each
Presbytery t. , to be elected by the delegates
eve understand that mostly all of the Pres.
byteries refer in some way or other to .the
se eject of Psalmody, sad It is likely to lead to
a sale range of discussion.
