At the Monthly meeting of the Historical
Society of Pennsylvania, James Ross Snow
den announced the death of Hon. Geo. M.
' Duliaa', and appropriate remarks on the
character and public services of the decease
I ed. He said that, in the list of oor eminent
and distinguished citizens, Mr. Dallas stood
in lh front rank. He was favored by na
tore with great abilities and the most grace
ful and attractive manners and deportment.
Having in his. youth the benefit of a home
which was the seat of refinement and learn
ing, and the examples and instructions of
his accomplished and distinguished father,
Hon. A.J. Dallas, u guide him, he was well
prepared'for the thorough education which
he received at Nassau Hall, where he was
graduateJ with the first honors ot his das
1810. His subsequent career was 'full of
honor and distinction. He was eminent at
the bar, wbsrtier in supporting the rights of
his private clients, or representing the Uni
ted States and the corrmon wealth of Penrj
sylvania, in the Federal and State Court.
He was eqnally distinguished as a Senator
of ".he United Slates, and Vice Pn.ideui ol
the United States. He represented our
Governments two of the rr.ost important
Courts in Europe. On hu return from the
Court of St. James in I'j61, he retired to pri
vate life, and on the last day of the year just
closed, he ended jis, useful- and honorable
career, in the reveoly-third year of his aye,

fir. Snowdeu closed his remarks by offer
tr.g the following preamble and resolutions,
which were seconded by H. G. Jones, Eq .
with some interesting and appropriate ob
servations, and were unanimou!y ad' p'ed.
Whtrea, since the last meeting of the

Resolved, That the private virtues and
pure morals and integrity, of the late Mr.
South Bre so anxiously waiting to be ac

peace is not far. off, but that it is in reach
and will soon be enjoyed. Now we are of
a different opinion. There is" no doubting
the fact that Jeff Davis ba9 yet a large ar

person suppose the rebel leaders are wil
ling and ready to abandon their cause, for
which they have struggled nearly four
years wi'h prospects, a: times, of 6uccess
almost equal to ours ?
We hesitate not in sayinz that peace will
come, eventually, bat the time has not, it
seems to us," yet arrived. We hope and
pray that it may soon come, and that this
country may again assme that higS posi
tion once held in the estimation of all na

with the ame respect, by those from abroaJ,
that we were a few years ago. We have

they make ihero iu this latitude, we thi.ik,
without consulting the almanac. It is true
the nights are longer, and one can make
the rounds of all the loafing places and still
have a long time to spend at home before
bedtime; but thote who have a given
amount of labor to perform find it difficult
to do so without the use of artificial light.
The breakfast aSrrn breaks our morning

sometimes inconvenient, are not without

The following case are reported as those
which met the visitors in every direction :
An old woman on Eleventh street was
found with the mei:ing snow dripping thro'

In another hovel near by was a mother

Military Execution of Two Boys in St. Louis.
On the 18th day of November 4ast, while
the troops that had been in pursuit of Gen.
Price were returning to St. Louis, two pri
vates of the 21si Missouri infantry, named
Ephriam Richardson and Abraham Purvis,
strayed from (heir regiment, and meeting a
citizen named Dominick Patton, shot him
down on the road and robbed him of his
msney. They were arrested, tried by a
Court Martial, and found guilty of the crime
of murder. On Friday morning last, the
boys, aged respectively sixteen and seven
teen, were executed in front of the jaiin
St. Louis. The boy Purvis first ascended
the gallows, accompanied by a Catholic
clergyman, Father Glerson, who knelt with
him a lew moments in prayer. They slow
ly aroe;' and the boy now took deliberate
measurement of his doom. His eyes were
titled and he took a quick feeble glance at f
the fatal nooe, and then his head was bow
ed, his frame quivered with weaknes, and
bis face showed that he had a heart sick
with excess of agony, and sinking in the
presence of death. Then there was mani
fest an inward struggle to submit his soul
to its trial ; and he walked upon the trap,
and before Lis head was placed in .the
noose, said ; "I am innocent, and die a
Christian, and am willing to die " The
rope was adjusted lo his neck and drawn
very light, and then the white cap wa3
drawn oer his face, the hammer was heard
unloosing the toil of a trap and the body
dropped with a dull, dead and sickening
sound. Unfortunately the Deck was not
quite broken, and life was not pronounced
extinct until the expiration of some twelve
Some moments elapsed before the re
moval of the body and until all things were
ready for the second execution. At a little
after eleven o'clock Ephriam Richardson
ascended the scaffold with ihe priest and

with a firmer tread than that of his com

any audible remark presented his head for
the adjustment ot the rope, and in a mo

TUE WAR XEtVS.
Fiomthe Age of the ISlh inst
Fort Fisbrer, the work defending N?- In
let, North Carolina, has been captured. It
was taken on Sunday last, by a combin
ed land and naval expedition, under the
command of Brevet Major General Alfred
H.Terry, and Rear Admiral David R Por
ter When Butler returned from Fort Fish
er, after the previous attack, he brought his
troops to Fortress Monroe. Admiral Porter
took the fleet to Beaufort, North Carolina.
Here the vessels took coal and provisions
on board, and prepared for a second a'tack.
When Butler was removed from command,
General Terry was placed at the head of
the troops al Fortress Monroe, and under
orders, from Washington, he at once sailed
to Beaufort. At this port, on January 8th,
all the land troops and naval vessels were
assembled, prepared lor a second expedi
tion asainst Wilmington. The land forces
numbered about eight thousand men. The
fleet contained nearly one hundred and fifty
On January 9th the combined expedition
sailed from Beaufort. The weither was
cood and ihe sea smooth, and on January
ll'h, last Wednesday, the flaet had all ar
rived near Mason boro Inlet, on the Atlantic
coast, about thirty miles nor h east of Fort
Fisher. The ships were at once prepared
for battle, and the unfortunate experience,
of the previous attack made the movements
of the land and naval forces harinmious.
On Thursday the" first vessels of the fleet
appeared off New Inlet, and on Friday
morning fifty Federal vessels were in close
proximity to Forr-Fisher. At daylight the
iron-clads and frigates advanced to the at
tack, and at about eight o clock the bom
bardment was begun. The shelling rivalled
that of the former attack in intensity, and
was kept op all day. The fort seldom re
plied, the storm of shells being too heavy
for the men lo labor at their guns. About
noon, underthe protection of a fleet of gun
boats, preparations were made to land Gen.
Terry's troops. A strip of woods on the
beach, about three miles above Fort Fisher,
was sbeii'jd', to drive the Confederates off,
and the landing began almost in the same
spot where Butler debarked two weeks be
fore. The landing was unoppoed, and
during Friday and Friday night Terry suc
ceeded in geitiirg his entire lorce of eight
thousand men on thote.
During all this time the bombardment of
Fort Fither continued. It was renewed on
Saturday with equal force, and Terry began
bis preparations lor an assault. A line of
i earthworks was constructed across the
narrow beach, between the ocean anil Cape
j Fear River, and a portion of the Federal
troops placed in them. Thee works faced
towards the North, and were intended as a
protection against any asault wbich mijht
te'raade by the Coi.federates. from Wil
mington, npon the Federal rear during the
attack upon Fori Fisher. Gen. Terry no
began the construction of works toward
the south, to assist him while the as.-ault
was being made. During all this lime the
bombardment of Fort Fisher was kppl up,
and -crcely a gun was fired in reply. Be
ing thus uninterrupted, the Federal labor
ing parlies progressed rapidly, and by noon
on Saturday lat everything was ready for
the attack. An assaulting column of in
fantry was at oi ce sent far ward against the
nor.hwes'ern angle ol Fort Fisher. Anoth
er assaulting parly, composed of sailors
and marines, was advanced against the
northeastern angle. Al half pas't three the
ii.fantry reached the fort, and after a long
and bloody struggle mcceeded in effecting
a lodgment. The sailors and marines who
advanced against the otBer angle, were re
pulsed with heavy loss. They were accord
ingly withdrawn, and sent to assist the in
fantry column. -.
Having effected a lod'ment, the Federal
foops f.raduaily worked their way alrng
the ramparts, driving the Confederates from
one bomb-proof and traverse to another,
until, at ten o'clock in the evening, the en
tire for xas captured and the garrison driv
en out. General Whitney and Col. Lamb,
with the Confederate troops, retreated south
along Federal point, to New Inlet. They
con Id retreat no farther; had no defenses?
and were captured. Both Whitney and
Lamb were wom ded. All the works on
Federal Point -have been captured by the
Federal troops. Seventy two cannon and a
number of prisoners, variously estimated at
from one thousand to twenty five hundred,
have been captured. Wilmington is not
yet taken. It is thirty miles north of Fort
Fisher. The Cape Fear river is not closed
by this capture ; for it ha another entrance
south of New Inlet. By judicious maneuv
ering, however, if the Confederates have
no large force to oppoee him, Porter may
be able lo effectually close the entrance,
though two large forts have yet to be taken
before he can have undisputed possession
of the harbor. The Federal loss in tba as
sault opon Fort Fisher is reported at nine
hundred. The magazine of the fort was
blown up after it was captured, and two
hundred Federal soldiers were killed and
wounded. There is a report that the Tal
lahassee and the Chiekamauga are shut up
in Cape Fear river, but this is extremely
The removal of General Butler from com
mand has made various changes, necessary
i n General Grant's army. General Gibbon
has succeeded General Ord in command of
the Twenty-fourth corps. It s said that
General Hunter will be Butler's permanent
successor. If this be so, it will be scarcely
an improvement upon the previous condi
tion of things. Butler was in Washington
yesterday testifying before the War Com
mittee that it was impossible to capture
Fcrt Fisher. The only item ot intelligence
from Grant's camp is that the Cofederates
are labormg very hard upon a most formi
dable line of works on the north side of
the James, above Dutch Gap, which will
make the canal, if ever 'opened, perfectly
There are now eight thousand Federal
prisoners at Salisbury, North Carolina.
From the Age c the 19th ins!.
As we mentioned yesterday morning the
capture of Fort Fisher does sot close Cape
Fear river, nor does ii necetasrily secure
the fall of Wilmington. An immense
amount of labor m necessary before either
of these things can ba secured, and if stren
uously opposed by the Confederals, ihe
Federal troops will findha greatest difti-
cully n accomplihi ng their ol j-Jct. Of the
position tjie New York Ttibunt says.: "It is
well known here that the taking of Fort
Fisher does not stop blockade running into
Cape Fear river. Zeik'a Island commands
theoiher 'entrance The fire from "Fisher
across head would have to be two miles.
Fifiee n miles of the river is commanded by
other works. Wilmington itself is strongly
defended. It is between two creeks, both
fortified onlheir inner bank. A deep canal
has been cut between these creeks, and the
inner bank of the canal is fortified. The
whole country around is marhy.'' The
people of the North, therefore, must not
expect very speedy progress from the armies
in froni of Wilmington. . .
The la'est sensation derived fom refu
gees is, that forty-five miles of the. Rich
mond had Danville railroad, between Dan
ville and Greensboro, have been destroyed
by. freshets. Of coursethis may be true,
for refugees seldom equivocate ; but as the
Danville road does not run within thirty
miles of Greensboro, the refugees are, this
time, not very accurate in their facts.
On Tuesday and yesterday Butler was in
Washington testifying about the first Wil
mington attack, before the War Committee.
General Grant has been summoned as a

A New York Administration paper hav

that city, but lhat "for purposes of public
welfare no reve lations of the facts in the
case will be made until after Ihe war," ibm
Boston Courier' rattier mildly observes :
"This is certainly an amazing disclosure, and
if ih statement be true, nothing can be
more clear than that ihe fires were not
kindled by Southern emisaries Ojr readers
can draw iheir own conclusions as to lha
class of persons engaged in this atrociously
criminal act, and perhaps can readily inter
the reason why, after so much ' apparent
preparation for a'general conflagration, o

The Democracy of the Nrrth will com
mit a fatal error if they accent the result of
the lat Presidential election as an indica
tion from Ihe hand of Destiny lo relax
iheir political action until the opening of
the next campaign. The future welfare of
the republic depends upon ihe political
zeal Hnd nrlivity of ihe DerrTocracy during
the year 1865.
The Kmull majority of the popular vote
lhat elected Ihe Black Republican candi
da'es, Vonxidered in view of Ihe extraordi
nary resources of lb Admiiintr'ation for
corruption and cpmpulsion, atfis that the
power of Ihe Dnmrn-rscy, on a fair fhld, is

that lingered in grief whil in oar political

Democracy has fulfi.led it" miiori of dis
orsanization, and lik any other pestilenr-e
will be remembered only for ihe evil it
has done. '

States' Rights Journal in the land. We
have no excuses to invent for rrirulifir a?ion
tf sentiment, nor have we lo pU I ''ex
pediency" in pslliaiion of inconsistency.
Our path has been'straight forward. Our
columns are before the people, not a line
in them that we would cancel nor senti
ment we would recall, not an assertion
that requires an explana' ion, not a word
thai we regret io have ufered, not a prin
ciple advecafnd that we have not stood by
and will stand by to the lai. &uch has
been our pat-t record, so will be our future.
We do not, however, ask the Democracy
to sustain ua in our mission as a reward
for the service we have done, but in con
aidcraiion of the good work that we pro
pose lo do. Th3 Nw Yotk News for 1865
will rot merely imitate its predecessors, it
will excel them. It shall be. not only the
truest exponent cf Democratic principle,
but the best ncicfpaper in the country.
Heretofore it has had no superior a-? a ve
hicle of news, hereafter it shall have no
eual. In every -department of "journalism
we have arranged lhat the News shall dis
tance competition. It is tbe only Demo
cratic newspaper in Ihe metropolis that has
the advantage of publishing a daily issue
with the full dispatches of the Associated
Pres-s, anil therefore its machinery for fur

more perfeci t"t i'mt of any of i:s Datno
