J8 Gov Wm. Bioleu, of this Stalo,
paid a visit to Washington a fow days
citico, and had a long interview with tho
President. Tho Governor and tho Pres
ident aro old friends, and wero Senators
together, and, as tho reoord proves, voted
together in favor of the Crittenden Com
promise and all other publio questions
lending to peaoe. Wo are glad to learn
that Gov. Biglor was cordially reoeived by
President Johnson, and that their riows
harmonized. This is a good omen.

Cheating the Soldiers.
From tbs Democratic Standard .
Less than six years ago, to havo tho
promise of money from "the government
oftho United Stales," was considered as
boing equivalent to tbo monoy itself.
Tho soldiers of tho regular army signed
their payrolls days and oven weeks before
receiving their money, and thoy did it
willingly,without tho least doubt that "the
Government' would deal honestly with
them, and pay them to tho uttermost
farthing ; and thoy wero not disappoint
ed. Bntsinco tho present War Department
has been in power, this rulo has been re
versed, and when a man now enlists as a
soldier, he must expect to be ohca'ed in
overy possiblo way.
Tho first thing dono in this lino by
Stanton 3 Co., was to rcfuso to givo to the
five-year regulars the warrants for tho
bounty lands to whioh tiiey wero entitled
For many years the rulo had been that
any soldier who had been in aotipn while
in the service of the United States, should
reocivo a warrant for 160 acres of land.
Bat when Stanton and his baokers, the
Abolition Congressmen, gave 8100 bounty
to throe year regulars, tboy made this act
an excuse for depriving all those regulars
who had enlisted prior to August, 1861, of
tho bounty lands whioh they were prom
bed at tho timo of their enlistment. The
five-yoar regulars, somo of whom havo
Bhed their blood upon ovory battle field of
,mportauoe during tho war, novcr received
aDy bounty, not even the carrison f p.,-,
DuriDg the last three years, tbo unfair,
dealing on the part of the War Depart
ment has beon so notorious as to create as
much dissatisfaction atuong.t the soldiers,"
and oauso many desertions. Men who
had been disabled by wounds or siokness,
with dependent, upon, thorn, wore put iDto
tho Invalid Corps against thoir will, and
not paid for a year or fourteen months ot
a time, whilo contractors and shoulder
strapped loafers about Washington obtain
ed their monoy without difficulty.
Tho latest cheating dodge is tho deduc
tion of part of the promised bounty of tho
one-year men. This caps tho climax of
meanness. For a War Doportment which
expended over 8300,000 during the first
year oftho war for those worse than use
less articles, brass Bhouldorsoales,and we
know not how much more for the equally
usoless loalher stooks, lo oommenoo re
trenobment now by depriving our gallant
soldiers of part their hardoarned money,
is an aot unworthy of any official pretend
ing to represent this great and generous
The man who took his life in his hand
and wcut forth to suffer, and starvo, and
toil, and face tho deadly bullets of the
fiercest fighters tho world ever saw, in do
fenso of our notional life, is worthy of all
that was ever promised to him, and as
much moro as a grateful nation can be
stow. It is arguod that these mon did not serve

Kltbmuiid Republic, May 16
During tho past week, about two hun
dred negroes, of all ages aud sexis, have
congregated on a lot near Baoon's Quarter
Uranoh. Fifty ot these aro ohildren, un
der twelve years of agj. They aro from
tho Counties of Gooohland, Fluvanna and
Lou'ua. They will soon learn that, hay
ing loft a cert.in livelihood at home, they
will havo to toil hard and constantly to
make a living in this now over-crowded
"city. Ooo of them a nearly grown man,
offored ycstcrday,lo hiro himself to a gen
tleman in that vicinity for tho moderate
sum of twclvo dollars per annum.
On Saturday night a negro woman and
four ohildren formerly the property of Dr
Skclton of Powhatan, reached the city
after a threo day', walk in search of ease,
plenty , and nothing to do,whieh,ljf course,
they did not Eod. After wandering abuut
during the night, they were, on Monday
morning fed by a relative of their former

The Negro's Paradise.
rtlsnbuig Daily Keaa, May 16.
For the last few days a tide of negro
women and ohildren, obviously from tbo
rural districts, has been pouring into town.
This is in the face of tho avowed polioy
of tho military authorities, who desire to
keep this population, as far a. practicable,
at home, it being the uniform experience
of tho Federal officers who bavo had to
administer civil rule that this class ia a
dead charge on tbo United States oommis
sariat, wherevor they aro allowed to con
gregate in towns. Persons who havo re
cently arrived thero by rail from Gold3
boro infoim na that the line of the roud U
.filled with them throughout ils whole ex
tent, all waiting to come to town it be
ing their most definite idea of Paradise
to visit a city.

The military authorities aro requiring
all negraoj to show passos from their em

that matters bo lorbiddcu to perlnit their

The Gen. replied, admitting the evil,
but reminded tbo officials that tho negroes
wore not properly vagrants ; that many
of them, if not all, wero freo, by being
the wives and ohildren of soldiers, or for
other reasons ; that recent events have

A Singular Present.
Tho negroos at Norfolk and Fortress
Monroo hovi purchased a sword, whioh
ia to be presented to Ben Butler. This is
an idea whioh could only have originated
under tho wool of a darkey. Presenting
Butler with a sword is about equal to mak
ing a pig a present of a pooket-haukcr-oheicf,for
one is about as likely to bo prop
erly used as the other.
It would bo much moro appropriate to
make Butler a prcsout of a sale, in whioh
to store the gold he stole at New Orleans.
If ho bad his deserts, ho would receive tho
present of a rope.as a reward for his "pa
triotio services" in filling his own pookets
by plundering friend and foe. If he should
ever fall into tho power of somo of tho
whito private soldiers who have suffered
from his tyranny, inoompotencs and cow
ardioe, he will bo mote likely to need a
pair of crutohes or a coffin than a sword,
which is an article that he has neither
courage enough to uso, nor sense enough
to let alone. Democratic SUuxdatd.
