gassy soldiers, divided into small squads,

swaggering up and down the streets all

ag the most opprobrious epithets to Demo

?st extent, by certain citizens who openly
ceased their approval of what was said,
:suggested to them much more, accompa
i by dark hints as to the duty of United
:es soldiers under such circumstances, to
,that nothing was said against the adusinba

tinily given for that purpose. The Donro
0 moody paid no attention to them, neither 1

rough and through it in every direction.—
.e display of bayonets and sabres was, in a
isle while, quite imposing, and at last a man
is arrested in the outskirts of the crowd and
arched off by a file of soldiers. Mr, Veer

'rhich no soldier could penetrate far enough to
isture the general harmony of the meeting.
luring Mr. Voorhees' speech attempts were
lade to commence speaking upon the other
Sands, as it was found impossible for one-third
the vast multitude to hear the speeches from
e principal stand. The material provided
r the side stands was found in possession of
e military, who refused to surrender it be
muse they wished it for seats. Samuel R.
Huai], one of the secretaries of the convention,
owed a large box to be brought to the front
of the State House, from which he commenced
to address the convention. He spoke for about
fire minutes, but a party of soldiers and Abo
ailLo it Lnomatauelem:sidr.vorpotion near him made
hear him impossible. Finally the soldiers
commenced to roll the box over, and thus com
pelled him to desist from speaking, declaring
in the most insulting manner their

Other attempts were made in various portions
of the Capitol square to start side stands ; but
although there was an abundance of speakers,
and an auditory anxious to hear,
was not dense enough to protect the speak
ers, and the stands were all demolished, or
the speakers dragged from them by the soldiers.
Mr. Harrington, member elect of the next
Congress from the Third district, was forced
at the point of the bayonet from one of those
side stands. The address of Mr. Voorhees,
and the Increasing fervor of Mr. Merrick's
words, satisfied the military that the presence
of a few of their number in the outskirts of
the crowd, and the frowning muzzles of their
cannon would not overawe the speakers, and a
nprogramme was at once determined upon
a carried into effect. Large numbers ofin
tr ops, cavalry and infantry, marched by co
ies up the principal streets and around the
sq are, halting on the side opposite the con
we L ion, and eending detachments, headed by
Li ut. Langdon, of a cavalry regiment, who

nu ber of troops undertook an outrage like

t wo different times during Mr. Merrick's
d ress, both arrests being made within thirty
e= of the stand, and considerable excitement

t rs were leaving the crowd rather than have
sturbance follow. Mr. Merrick appealed
o he people to stand firm, and not yield either
o ilitary pressure or to fear. They were in
b discharge of a constitutional right, and no
u, , required of them to forego their purposes.

tibia twenty minutes, it being then about 3

Heldricks immediately gave way to the com

sion. Several arrests were made, but, although
the greatest excitement prevailed, no distur
bance resulted. It is said that this last raid
was made by order of Colonel Coburn, of the
33d Indiana infantry, a regiment lately eap_
tured by the Confederates in Tennessee. The
soldiers, at any rate, cheered for him. In
the midst of the excitement the soldiers were
seen to load their muskets."
The Indiana Journal (administration organ)
apeleglzes in the following terms for these un
paralleled and alarming outrages :
" The interruptions were as unfortunate as
they were unjustifiable. * * * But we
owe it to the public, as well as to Gen. Haman,
to say that the arrests were made without au
thority and contrary to orders. Pie gave orders
that the soldiers should stay away from the
State House entirely, and none were posted in
or near the yard on duty, except the guards
at the old arsenal. Those who attended the
meeting, armed or unarmed, were there con
trary to the General's orders. We are autho
rized by him to say this, and we pre glad to
be able to do it."
We don't believe a word of it. There was
no need of military on the ground—but being
there, he could have restrained the troops from
violence bad it been his pleasure to do so. The
object was plainly to provoke resistance to
military authority, and then massacre the peo
ple. Hascall is a liar as well as a tyrant—in
fact, the whole administration and the party
it represents is a huge, unparalleled falsehood,
upon the history of which, when impartially
written, the world will ponder with astonish
ment and disgust.
SOMETHING FOR THE PEOPLE TO
From the New York Daily News
PAPER ItesonacEs.—The condition of the
Federal Treasury is one which should excite
the liveliest solicitude of every citizen. But
amid the rush of paper speculations few bear
in mind the astounding fact that nearly one
half of the whole capital of the country has
been expended and appropriated in two years,
in which no approximation to peace has been
made. The following figures show the amounts
actually appropriated by the XXXVIIth Con
gress for three years up to July, 1864, and the
amount that the Secretary of the Treasury is
authorized to borrow to meet those appropria

for three years 43,779,132,000 $2,779,000
LOS/13 authorized by Congress
for three years 3,094,000,000 3,000,000
The power to borrow and expend this money
is in addition to the customs duties, and the
internal revenues. Now, the census of 1860,
page 194, gives the whole amount of personal
property in the northern States at $2.678,400,-
000, or about the sum which the XXXVIIth
Congress has appropriated for three years war.
That sum is now in process of expenditure as'
rapidly as the Secretary can get hold of it.
But by the plan he has adopted, he wastes and
destroys one half to obtain the other. The
existing debt is $1.000,000,000, and it has been
increased during the past year $500,000,000,

$500,000,000. On the 28th of May, last year,
the Secretary published his debt, and he has
now semi-officially done so again. We shall
compare those two statements, as follows

Total $186,175,915 1,002,656,938 517,201,421
The only loans that the Secretary has ob
tained in the whole year are on 20,000,000 of
7 3-10 bonds at par, and on 578,000,000 of
5-20 s ; of which 50,000,000 have been obtained
since April 1, apparently by conversion, but at
what price really no one knows, except those
with whom the private arrangement was made.
The Secretary is authorized to negotiate 500,-
000,000 of those stocks, and he required Con
gress to remove the restriction that they should
not be sold for less than market value, for the
reason that it prevented him from selling the
bonds privately to capitalists at rates less than
the public would be required to pay. That
arrangement has been tarried out amid a sys
tem of puffery, and the amount so obtained, it
appears, nearly suffices to pay the $47,000,000
of 1-year certificates that have fallen due in
the last sixty days. The fact, then, is, that
of the 517,000,000 obtained during the year,
over 400,000,000 has been from paper money
and temporary loans, and in the same time the
value of the paper has fallen to 67 cents on the
dollar. At the same time a long step has been
taken toward repudiation, since much of the
paper issued and authorized was originally
payable in gold, but is now paid in paper only.
We may enumerate :
Demand Note!! In gold. Paper.
One-year certificates In gold, Paper.
Depoelte . . In gold. Paper.
400,000,001 Loan.... Paper.
Postage Stamps .For duties. Not for duties
In addition to this a the law of the last ses
sion allows the Secretary to issue to the hold
ers of coupons, payable in guld, a certificate
that they have the gold in the Treasury, when,
in fact, the gold is not there at all. The paper
that the Secretary may now issue may be enu
merated as follows:
5-20 Banda, 6 ver cent Coin. $420,000,000
10-40 Bonds, 6 per cent Coin. 600 000 000
1 Year Certificates, 6, per ct.. Paper. 500,000,000
Legal Certificates, 8 per ct... Paper. 400 00,000
Legal Tenser Notes. 300 000.000
Lewd Tender Fractions. 26,000 000•
Bank Notes 300,000,000
Total to iHNIO 2,426,000,000
These are the amounts that may come on
the market without further legislation. In fact
the one-year certificates have.no limit. The
400,000,000 of short bonds may be legal tender
themselves, or-convertible into legal tender at
the will of the Secretary. It is obvious that
with each a mass of paper money over the
market, that the capitalist must be pretty bold
who would take the first lots at par. If, in the
past year, there have been comparati vely no
investments in stocks, there is little prospect
that increase of investments will take place this
year, when the capital of the country has been
so much &mislabel. The fact that 400,000,000
of three-year bonds, with interest in paper,
were made legal tender, and supported by
300 000,000 of legal tender, without interest,
and 300.000.000 of irredeemable bank paper
makes 1,000,000,000 of paper money was au
thorized, shows pretty clearly that the Secre
tary had no faith in large loans. He h as
repeatedly threatened to offer for a loan, but
has not had the courage to do so ; since, if the
loan failed, credit would fall with it The
public must, therefore, make up its mind that
the expenses of the government are to be met
by paper money. at the rate of two dollars for
one. At this moment all government supplies
cost at the rate of three dollars for two. Every

AN ELOQUENT AND -DESER FED TRE-
On retiring from service and sending north
some non-commissioned officers and . privates of
the 81st United States infantry—mho were
shamefully surrendered by their officers while
serving in Texas, in the early part of the re
bellion, and recently exchanged—Oen. Bitiike
issued the following eloquent order, the highest
tribute he could pay to the brave and loyal
men who, for two years, had restated all offers •
and entreaties to desert the flag of their coun
try, under which they had enlisted :
lIKADQIIARTERS DEPARDISST OF TRH DULY, ?
19FR ARMY CORPS, OPRLOUSAS, April 26,1868.
Sergeants Brady, Stapleton, M'Cormick,
Reinhardt, Sheble, Neal, Harris, Darken, and
two hundred and sixty-nine men of the Eighth
Infantry of the Regular Army of the United
States, having been exchanged by the rebel
government, whose 'prisoners they were, ar
rived at New Orleans on the 25th of February.
1863, and a portion of them, under command
of Lieutenant Copley Amory, Fourth cavalry,
reached this poet on the 23d instant, to share
with us the honors of this campaign. It has
been deemed but an act of ! justice to these gal
lant men to relieve them from the service, and
to expedite their return to the North. They
separate from the command this day. In honor
of their departure from Opelousas, the Com
manding General has ordered a national salute,
and a similar honor will be paid them upon
their departure from New Orleans. Captain
Bainbridge, at Opelousas, and Brigadier (ken
, eral Sherman, at New Orleans, are charged
with the execution of this order.
These gallant men of the army of the Unite d
States in Texas were shamefully and uncondi
tionally surrendered to the rebel authorities by
their superior &fumes on the 9th May, 1861.
Separated from their officers, divided into
squads and . removed to different posts on the
frontier of Texas, deprived of pay for more
than two years, they were subjected to degra
ding labors, supplied with scanty food and
clothing, and sometimes chained to the ground,
or made to suffer ether severe military pun

bounties to desert their flag. Notwithstanding
the false reports of the overthrow of their
government, which seduced so many men of
higher pretensions and position, unsustained
by counsel with each other, with few exceptions
they repelled the bribes and avoided the trea
son. Those who chose a different course did
it to escape their prison.
No government has ever been more faith.-
fully served than by these men. Officers of
the army and navy, to whom they have a right
t. turn for conned and example—who had
been educated by the government, and never
received a month's pay that was not drawn

every branch of the government within their

sought to blacken the name of Ai/20Am and
Americans by fastening upon her the greatest
crime or human history—that of destroying
the best government ever framed, and annihi
lating the well-founded hopes of humanity in
republican liberty. Thank God ! the officers

Not a soldier of the army, nor a sailor of the

TRH GROWING CROPS. —The accounts which
reach us from all parts 'Of the country agree in
predicting that the cording crop of cereals,
vegetables, and fruit will, in all probability,
be the largest ever grown in this country.
Notwithstanding the war and the high price
of farm labor, an immensely increased area of
land has been placed under cultivation. There
seems to have been a conviction on the part
of the western farmers that the coming year
would witness war in Europe, and as a con
sequence that there would be an unusual de
mand for cereals and provisions. In addition
to the increased number of acres put into
wheat, tobacco, Sax, hemp, and sorghum are
being very extensively grown ; the three first
on account of the enhanced price they have
borne during the past year, and the sorghum
to supply a substitute for the sugar and mo
lasses which have been held at rates that puts
them out of the means of farmers to use. The
West will this year prodece all the sugar and
moistens it can use, and will, in addition, be
able to sell large quantities to the East.
- All this is cheering. nation that has an
assurance of an abundfince of food, and the
means of transporting it from where grown to
wherever required, is in fact rich, and can
afford to view the future confidently. The
war, happily for us, is not waged upon our
soil, and the husbandman is sure that he can
gather what he sows. There is now a hope in
the West that the Mississippi will be opened to
New Orleans, in which case breadetuffs and
provisions will have an Outlet they have not
had for two years past.
SCARCITY OF LABOR.—The Detroit PM? says

laborers is severely felt. The war has effect.

unprecedented figure. When the harvest sea
