The Conduct of Military Ofllcera
Statements made lo as yesterday, by
some ol the mo't respectable citizens of
Capitol Hill, concerning recent doings of
the military cflicera al Capitol Hill bar

excite tho disgust and indignation of every
man, woman aud child possessing a grain
ot common senso and a singlo Hpark of
humanity. Tho most prominent and dis
gusting of thescacts are said to have been
witn-sscd by a largo number of residents
in that vicinity on Saturday evening. Wo
give the stories as they aro told to us .
A Eoldier of Compmy II, Eighteenth
Vettran. Reserve Corps, (the regiment
stationed iu that barracks,) named Chris
topher Eldctbrand, visited the Twentieth
Corps for the purpose of scciug a friend,
became intoxicated, and did not return lo

Saturday evening Eldctbrand was sus
pended by the thumbs to a rcuud of a
ladder placed with oho end on the ground
and the other ajainst thocavos of tho buil
dings. IIu was kept suspou-lcd until fif
teen minutes to uino o'clock. After two
hours of fufaring, the cries cf Eldrr

Yesterday morning tho two citizens
whom we havo uiotitioueo above as having
made remarks concerning the punibhuicut
were before Col. John-on, the couimauder
of the regimm.t, ono ol them having boon
taken there under arrest. Col. Johusou
charged them with inciting the crowd to
riot, and ordered ono to report at a fixed
tiui", and tho other when notified.
The ouc, however, who was taken bo-
fore the unload under guard, yesterday,
oallod on S.cretary Stanton, aud laid thu
facts bofore him.
The Seoretary called in Gen. Fry, and
requested him to investigate tho caso.
The Socrelary thou dispatched a cour
ier with a'n order from Col. Johnson, re
quiring tho rolouso of tho gentleman who
called on him from arre.-t, wilh whioh or
der tho Colonel is said to have complied.
Wbilo in oonvorsatioti with tho Seore
tary of War, this gentleman also informed
him that a soldier had been confined in
tho guard houso of tho barra'eks for thrco
months, lacking a few days, aud had been
lying very ill for tho most part of the last
month of his confinement, having been
deprived of the services of a physician,
and, until within tho past few days,
still remnitiing iu tho guard-house. This,
tbo Secretary said, should bo nlso inves
tigated. The folks in tho neighborhood testify
that it is a general praotioo of theso offi
cers to plaoo men,for tho cligbtost offences,

peaks, and to compel them to carry it for
two hours at a time.

times voted for Democrats and somctimos

New York Journal of Commerce remarks
as follows :
"The career of this d'lEtingui-hcd officer
has endeared him not alone to his army,
but aleo to every soldier and to tho entire
American people. The enthusiasm with
which ho has been received in Washing
ton will be equaled in all the oountry,and
he will find himself already known in
every house whero a patriotio hoart beats

tho most remarkable incidents of tho
times in whioh wo live that tho attempt
should bo made to destroy tho reputation
of suoh a man. It was as iniposslb'e lo

Ono would think that a thrtitt like
this would penetrate tho rhinoceros skin
of tho hurley Secretary ; but it only had
tho effect of raising tho writer of it in
Stanton's estimation. Wo aooordingly
bavo it announced by telegraph that tho
friends of Gen Sherman and Seoretary
Stanton are endeavoring to reoonoile tho
former to tho latter. S it socais that tho
General has Stanton upon his knccs,shrink

spirit of ti whipped spaniel or a baflled
conspirator. But instead of the heroic
Boldicr hooding tho whining of Stanton's
messenger, begging pardon for their mas
tor, the daumloss soldier is mingling with
his heroic legions. Tho man whom Hal
lock oonspircd to disgrace, is now in tho
capital, tho admired of all admirers.
Speaking of the late reviow iho telegraph
igcnt gives Sherman tho post of honor ;
ho says :
"First camo the army of tho Teniies

them with deafening chocr. Tho Gen

was tromendou'. At least 40,000 peoplo
roso and gave him oheor after cheer, above
which could hardly bo heard tho sounds
of tho bands,"
The telegraph also iufornn us that when
Gen. Sherman walked ou iho platform,
on which sat the President, several mom
bers of his Cabinet, besides many othor.
distinguished personages, ho walked to
wards the President who shook him cor
dially by tho b .i ml. atauton next exten

and wheeling quickly upou his itecl took

The EjiPEiton Nicholas and the Ac

exhibts tho late Emperor of Russia in a
new character, as well as records ona of
tho most happy escapes from an awkward
position that wit and presence of mind
might afford. Some yars ago thero 3 was

awkward and dangerous position for tho
poor actor, who tolt ne mould get into
