Cea. Lee Surrenders His Arnj.
' On Monday morning last the "hole conn
lr was electriflud with the cheering oewi
. of the surrender of .General Lee's army of
Northern Virginia. The ' surrender was
maJe near, the Appomatroi Court House,
otne eighty mHes west of Richmond, and
'. tboutTorty miles east of Lyncbbsrg. The
two armies seem Jo hare been on a com
plete race towards Lynchburg, and Lee see
ing he was abool to lose the race, surren
ders his army as prisoners of war, subject
to exchange. The officers gare individual
paroles, and the regimental officers gave
paroles for the men under their commands.
The rebel General made no special terms
. . for himself, bat shares the late of his army.
All the officers were allowed the privilege
of retaining their side-arms, beggnje, and
bones. The two Generals in command,
Grant and Lee, effected an interview on
- Sunday last, when tbey agreed opon terms
of surrender. The whole thing was arrang
d upon, a square business way about half
past four, o'clock on Sunday afternoon.
The arms, artillery, and poblio property,
' were to be parked, stacked aod torned over
to officers appointed by Grant to receive
them.. Alter this was done, each man was
followed to return to his home, cot to be dis
turbed by United States authority, so long
'as tbey observe their parole and the laws in
force were they may reside. In one ef
General Lee's notes to Grant he says : "1
did oot intend to propose the surrender of
thearmy of Northers Virginia, but to ak
the terms of your propositions. To be
frank, I do not think the emergency has
amen' to call for the surrender of-ibis ; bat
M the restoration of peace should be the
tola object of all, I desire lo know whether
your proposals' would tend to that end. I
cannot, therefore, meet you wiih a view to
surrender the army of -Northern Virginia;
but. aa far. as your proposition mny affect
the Confederate States forces under my
command, and tend to the restoration of
pence, I should be pleased to meet, you at
10 A- 11-, to-morrow, oo the oldeta,ze road
to Richmond, between tne picket lines of
. ue two-armies., Respectfully yours, &c."
.The surrender of General. Robert E- Lee
. .to General U. Su. Grant, in no way abridges
the fame of the leader of the Confederate
army. He perceived that he could not win
in the battle that was about - to be fought;
- and, with the hoble and soldierly spirit that
has always characterized him, 'be avoided
the conflict to avert the sacrifice of human
Jife believing at the same time, no dosbl,
that, through bis ac'ioo, a speedy and hon
orabte peace, so much desired by milUooe
of our countrymen, will be gained without
further loss of life or treasure. In this last
act we perceive in General Lee a man no
less a hero than when he confronted in the
hear of battle the valor of his foe. God
, grant that bis coarse may -lead to a speedy
peace, and that, wheo the people rejoice,
we may rejchee with them over thousands
nf lives saved to the country and mankind.

After a bloody and protracted struggle of.
four years, the fall of Richmond coul3 oot tail
to excite the most Intense interest in the pob

evinced a feeling of universal gratification
at the prospect of a speedy and honorable
termination of our National troubles. Min

the Provisions of the Act, Exemptions and
Penalties of the Law. It is entirely different
from the old Stamp Duties, and this card is

correspondent of the ' Boston Herald writes :
Executions are p'enty. John Nicholas, a
private oi the -69th New York, was hong a
day or two ago: He was a simple - looking
chsp, and, being lightly built, died pretty
hard. Next day I was called to witness
another execution,' that of James Kelly, ol
ihe67sh Penasylvania volunteers. He was
shot.- The rale is to shoot those who desert
to the-rear, and hang those who desert to
the rebels. Executions are only too plenty.
There is on hand a laree number of deert
ers, who have not yet been tried ; the ma
jority of them are foreigners, mostly Cana
dians, who are induced to desert b the
"general order" of General Lee, who prora
e to send them home under escort. Gen.
Grant has issued a similar order, which has
already influenced desertions."
. Shobtlt after nine -o'clock last evening
the intelligence, was received in this city of
the surrender of General Lee and his whole
army to GenemlGrant. .Swiftly, as if upon
the. wings of the wind, the tidings were
transmitted to all parts of the city. The
n'swi was not unexpected, and being fully
Confirmed by official . despatches, almost
our whole population, was aroused.. Men
and women thronged the streets; the fire
companies got oat their engines and pared

fares, tells were rung, and cannon fired and
every demonstration .of joy maJe. ..The
people rejoired at Gram's bloodless victory,
because they regarded it as the harbinger
of peace to our afflicted land. May God
give us a true-peace, and a Uuion ol hearts

1 Thc Cleveland PLiindezler has been dis
. Capt. C. M. Makvillc Since our last
issue, we learn that Capt.-Manville has
been removed 'as Provost Marshal of this
District. I:' is also intimated that the cause
dl bis removal is the fact that the board fell
under the displeasure of the Provost Mar
shal General, because they did their duty
too faithfully to the citizens of this District.'
It is well known that many have censur
ed the board at-Troy, for a too rem and
rigid enforcement of the law; and a too
scrupulous performance of their doty ; but
the powers at Washington seem to bold the
opposiio. The truth is, they saw the gross
injustice of enforcing the draft on the basis
of the old enrollment, and tbey rn connec
tion with Judge Mercur, our Congressman,
took active measures to reduce our quota,
in accordance with ihe advised enrollment,
thus making ths draft much less and just
what it should be.. Unfortunately for Capt.
Manville, his fidelity to the principles of
right and justice to the people, has resulted
in his removal. This is wrong and highly
prejudicial to the Administration and the
country. The people in this portion of - the
district, have the strongest confidence, to
the ability and -integrity of Capt. Manville
and the entile board ; and with one voice
request the re-tnsTatement ol Capt. Man
ville. Their confidence in bim is unsha
ken, and we trust the authorities at Wash
ington will fully understand the fact, so evi
dent here, that the public sood demands his
re-instatement. Amid the frauds and cor
ruptions exposed in otLer districts, we are
justly proud of oor board ; for the man does
not live, who dartt to question its integrity.
Suectss of the 7 SO loan.
Our readers will notice that subscriptions
to the popnlar 7-30 Loan are still continued
in the most liberal manner. To the Old
World the success of these Peoples' Loans is
one of the wonders of a Republic. The
Government does not seek to borrow in for
eign markets ; it offers do premiums to tank
ers, but appeals directly to the people, and.
with what success is sufficiently shown by
tbe fact that datoJoity ihret days they sob
scribed and paid the cash down (or one hun
dred and ix!y one mi'.lion dollars ol the 7 30
Loan. There can be no stronger evidence
ol public confidence (n Government secu
rities. While nearly alt other stocks have
gone down from twenty to fifty, arid even a
greater per cent, within a few weeks, all
forms of U. S. bonds and stocks have re
mained firm except the slight fluctuations
tha'tre incident to all rapid changes in the
money market. Our readers will remember
that the aubrcriber to the 7-30 Loan receive
semi-annual interest - at the rate cf seven
and threetenths per cent, per annum in cur
rency, and at the end of three years from
June 15th, 1865, they will have the option
ot receiving payment in full, or converting
their notes into a 5 20 six per cent, gold in
terest bond. - The late great decline in the
premium on gold makes these notes more
desirable than ever as an investment, and it
should not be forgotten that their exemp
tion from state or municipal taxstion adds
largely to their valoe. There is no inter,
rnption in the receipt of subscription or the
delivery of the notes. All banks, bankers,
and othera acting as Loan Agents, will pay
subscribers the interest in advance from tbe
day of subscription nntil June 15th.
Si mom Draper's son charged $1P0 000 for
two weeks' labor at Savannah, markinc the
cotton which was seized there. A Y Ex.
It is our deliberate judgment that the
young Draper is a full believer in the doc
trine that "Modesty is a quality that highly
a.lorn a woman," but is nfit a component
part of the character of a gentleman and
patriot. SI80.000 for two weeks, is S360,
000 a month, or S4. 320,000 per annum. A
tolerably fat office for a yourg man amid
the pressure of hard times during f.ur great
civil war. Thit he ha at least a full ap
preciation of the valne of his service., we
hall not attempt lo deny. However, hav
ing displayed such aMonishinz ability for
churning, ' we suggest that he shall now join
the cavalry so that he rr ay charge to his
heart's content, and inflict his destructive
blows upon the enemy. - It is a sad thought
that the hnge grabber pendent at the ex
iremity of bis colloscal right arm. should be
devoted to tbe depletion of the Treasury ol
his own country. Patriotic young .man !
Has he shown himself ,cea8,er for the fray?"
I he maimed and battle scarred, that such
reward should be his? What nation, or set
of lunatics ever dreamed of giving su-h com.
pensaMon. for any manner of service! He
join the cavalry , draw his sabre and vent or
so much as to look upon the ansry enemy !
Not a bit of it. Not even a taste. If this
intensely loyal yonng Draper be really a
son .of Simon, he can have no stomach ior
anything of the sort, though he certainly
possesses the strength of a Sampson to
draw his enormous pay. Con Union,

Genaral Lee, in his retreat (rom Rich

General Grant, in bis pursuit, followed the
railroad from Pe ersbnrg towards Burkes

Amelia durt House, thirty-five mile south
west of Richmond, and seventeen miles
northeast el Burkesville. Grant, moving
along the lower railrrad from Petersburg,
was on the same day, at Notlaway Court
House, fifteen mites south of Amelia.. At
six o'clock ion Wednesday evening, Sheri
