Thursday Afternoon, March 28, IS6I.
Auditor of the National Treasury.
We have incidentally heard that Col. W.
W. BROWN of the Centre Democrat is
likely to be appointed as third Auditor
of the Treasury under Secretary CHASE.
The election of Col. BROWN to this im
portant office is one of the best that could
possibly be made. We have known the
Col. porsonally and politically for a num
ber of years, and always found him bat
tling for the right. The Col. is located
in a strong hold of Lecofocoism and no
man has done more to revolutionize the
"Bigler district" on the stump or through
the columns of his excellent paper thaw
he has done. The Senatorial, Congres
sional' and Representative districts are all
at the present that represented by Repub
licans on the floor of their. respeetive
Houses, whilst he himself fills the respell
sible,post of County Treasurer. If the
administration rewards such• men, who
have spent their energies, time and mo
ney for the advancement of the Republi
can party, they will never have cause to
regret it and at the same time pay just
tribute for services already performed.
A Rogue at Large.
The ease of John B. Floyd presents
another sad fact that rogues in broad
cloth generally . escape the punishment
justly due them. Through his counsel he
has virtually admitted his guilt in regard
to the fraudulent character of the "accep
tances," by pleading the statute which
exempts witnesses before Congressional
ComMittees from trial before the courts
of law. It seems there, were two indict
ments against him. The first, in regard
to the bonds stolen from the Indian Trust
, Fund by Bailey, which he was charged
With aiding and abetting, was dismissed,
on the ground that no sufficient testimony
had been . addueed to implicate him, and,
accordingly, the District-Attorney enter
ed a ‘nolle prosegui. The other indict
ment, charging corruption and malfea
sance in office against Floyd, in the mat
ter of the "acceptances," was submitted
_ to the Court on a state of facts agreed to
between the proseeutiow and the coun
sel for the accused; and among the
"facts" agreed to was the important one
that the culprit had been examined be
fore - a Committee of Congress relative to
the same matter, and Carlisle, his shrewd
and able counsel, entered this "fact"
as a plea to the further prosecution of
the indictment. The counsel affected to
put this on his own motion, with Out con
sultation with the accused, but Floyd has
rested his case on this plea, and the
Court on Wednesday let hint off under it,
thus making it palpable to the world that
he is guilty and dare not come to trial.
This escape through the imperfection of
the jaw, or the unfaithfullness of those
whose duty it is to put the same in force,
will only serve to deepen and rivet the
verdict of public condemnation of the
criminal. He will henceforth stand con
fessed to the world a degraded, guilty
man, a public peculator, who escaped
condign punishment by availing himself
of a technical plea, which has ever been
regarded as the infallible sign of moral
POSITION OF Goy. HlcKs.---Gov.
Hicks, of Maryland, has written a letter
to Mr. Wm. Price, denying that he has
been or intends to be an applicant for of
fice under the new Administration ; that
he has indorsed no candidate, nor will he
do so unless his advice is asked by - the
appointing power; that he has never pre
pared, or begun to prepare, a proelama
tion to the people regarding the crisis,
consequently none could have been des
troyed, as was reported, and that had he
ever doubted the correctness of the stand
taken by , bim regarding the call of a Con
vention he should consider his course as
fully endorsed by the refusal of Delaware,
Kentucky, Tennessee and North Caroli
na to call conventions.
OUT OF THE UNION.—SOMO of the
journals in Texas are sorely lamenting
- the position of that State, in being rush
ed out of the Union by a few persons,
without time being allowed for any de
liberation. The Alamo Express, publish
ed at San Antonia, says :
"By a meagre vote of the people we are out
of the Union—the strong arm of the federal
government is being withdrawn, and the fron
tier lays bleeding at the hands of the merciless
savage ; the mail facilities will be stopped,
and the gaunt and hungry figure of direct tax
- ation will 'stalk in at our doors. This is the
prospect now ; b tif things do was to the worst,
we know there ill be change, as inevitably as
the darkness of very night has an end. The
people have so ght a remedy for existing evils
in secession ; ay they not seek a remedy of
coming evils n a return "to old landmarks?
Latest Reports about Sumter.
A 'Washington telegram says that all
statements alleging that the President has
issued or sent peremptory orders to Charles
ton by Surgeon Fox, Mr. Lamon, or any
body else, for the evacuation of Fort
Sumter, are fabricated, and wholly un
worthy attention. Ever since Major An•
derson made his report in detail to Mr.
Holt of the state of supplies in the Fort,
before this Administration came into pow
er, and Gen. Scott advised the withdrawal
of his command, it has been clearly evi
dent that it was a military neosskty, which
could not be avoided. The President has,
however, as already stated, determined to
satisfy himself by other means of informa
tion beside the official reports of all the
facts, and no decision can be made until it
is received. He has nothing to do with
Issuing orders for the withdrawal. Gener
al Scott did not choose to take the exclu
sive responsibility, and hence 'referred it
to the 'Cabinet more than two weeks ago,
when he was convinced that no other al
ternative was presented. From first to
last it has only been a question whether
the President would sanction the decision
of the highest military authorities in the
Government, and not one in any degree
involving his own individual or official ac
tion. This approval or rejection necessa
rily involves a certain degree of responsi
bility, under present circumstances, which
the President has endeavored to meet by
relieving his own mind of any misgiving
as to the necessity of evacuating Fort ;
Sumter. .In sending personal agents there
to make inquiries, and see for themselves,
he has not intended to reflect upon Major
Anderson or the officers around him, but
to assure himself with testimony which
will go far to convince the' country that
he is compelled to allow the withdrawal.
Col. Lames, the. President's: special
messenger to Fort Sumter; arrived at
Washington yesterday from Charleston,
and has ere this made his report as to the
exact condition of things in the fort.
From what has been learned, the evacua
tion will take place on Saturday next.
Sam. Houston Ready for Battle.
A special Washington telegram to the
New York Post says that stirring news
may soon be expected from Texas. Sam
Houston, although formally deposed from
the Governorship of the State by the
Rebel Convention, does not intend to
give up his place without a struggle.—
Despatches from him just recieved, draw
a gloomy picture of the condition of
affairs, and declare that civil war is inevi
table. He has the Convention and a host
of the rebels arrayed against him, but he
is not the “Old Sam" of former days if
he cannot find backers enough to show
fight. The latest information indicates
that he has studied his position, and taken
a firm stand against the seceders. He
expresses no fear of the ultimate result of
the conflict, which he seems to regard as
Official information of the machinations
of the secessionists in 'New Mexico has
been recieved. A few of the rebel lead
ers are known to be busily at work in that
territory trying to revolutionize it. The
territorial Governor is strongly suspected
of active complicity in the plot.
"THE SNEAKING TRAITORS OF THE
NORTH "—The New York _Atlas, one of
the ablest old line Democratic papers of
the North, has a strong article with the
foregoing heading, and though stronger
in language than we can approve, yet
doubtless, in its facts, substantially true.
It calls things by their right names, and
may be the only way to meet a "class of
persons, who, under a thin veneering of
pretended love for the Union, are . pro
foundly steeped in treason. They talk of
patriotism, and at the same time are chuck
ling at the humiliating position in which
the administration is .placed by being ob
liged to give up Fort Sumter, and to toler
ate other ants of the secessionists which
weaken our government at home and ren
der it contemptible abroad. These North
ern secessionists, in their disguise, are the
very men that the Southern secessionists
rely upon for encouragement and assistance
in their resistance to the general govern
ment. They are cunningly poisoning the
public mind, and are continually inforin
ing the people of the South that the North
will be divided in the case of a collision
between the secessionists and the general
