CoL A. II. Bowman, of the U. S. Corps
of Engineers, died at his residence in
Wilkesbarre, Pa., on Nov. 10th. He was
well known to army circles, was formerly
superintendent at West Point,had charge of
the construction of Fort Sumter, and at
the time of his death was president of the
commission of engineers for remodelling the
coast fortifications. .
lion. Jacob Collamer, United States Sen
ator, died in Woodstock, Vermont, on the
evening of the 9th of November. Mr. C. ,
though not a brilliant man, possessed many
statesman-like qualities, added to great in
dustry and perfect integrity. In his death,
the United States Senate has lost one ot its
ablest and oldest members.
It is said that the three daughters of the
late Chief Justice Taney are left in a condi
tion of poverty, and that one or two of them
have been sewing for a living. Judge Ta
ney died a poor man, and left three daugh
ters. Their secession friends havenot cared
for them as they should have done.
The Indians on th e plains are again becom
ing troublesome. On the 6ththey attacked the
whites at Pool Creek, captured a mail, am
bulance, mules, and some Government hor
ses. Gen. Heath is reported to have recent
ly had a battle with the Indians killing 29
of them.
Com. Murray took possession of the rebel
ram Stonewall, now laying at IIavana,on Oc
tober the 2d, by simply raising the Ameri
can flag at the mast-head. He is empow
ered to return to the Spanish Government
tbe $16,000 advanced to pay the crew of the
ram. -
John C. Breckinridge, is reported as hav
ing gone to San Antonia, Texas, from Can
ada where he proposes to reside,providing
the President will pardon him. He de
serves the fate of Wirr.
Among tha pardon-seekers, who visited
the White IIoue, on the 10th, were Long
street, Albert Pike and Extra-Billy Smith.
The Georgia State Convention has de
clared by a unanimous vote that slavery is
forever abolished within the State.
The debt of Tennessee is $16,211,000.
Gov. Brownlow recommends the issue of
bond to pay the interest thereon.
The Late Elections.
The result of the recent electionsfootsup,
in round numbers, as follows :
Pennsylvania, Union maj. 21,000
Vermont, Union maj. 20,000
Maine, Union maj. 22,000
Ohio, Union maj. 30.000
Iowa, Union maj. 20,000
few York, Union maj. 2S,000
New Jersey, Union maj. 3,600
Nevada, Union maj. 1,000
Several other States have held elections
this fall but we have not the figures.
- In New Jersey the Union majority in the
Senate is two, and in House 1 5.
In New York the Senate stands 27 Union
to 5 Cops, the House 94 Union to 34 Cops.
The next Congress will stand Senate,
Union 38, Cops 11; House, Union 144,
Cops 40.
- The Union party has swept everything
before it not leaving a single State to the
Cops. This is surely a most glorious tri
umph. British Neutrality Precedents.
A petition has been circulated in commer
cial circles in Boston, which has been numer
ously signed by the shipownersand merchauts
asking Secretary Seward to refrain from
pressing the demands of our Government a
gainst England for compensation for depre
dations committed upon our commerce by
jthe Alabama and other British pirates.
Tbe petitioners take the solid ground that it
would be a great injury to the United States
to weaken the prospective value of the pre
cedents set by the British Government, as
the day must sooner or later arrive when we
will have the opportunity to follow in their
footsteps, and, imitating the example of her
merchants, mechanics and ship-builders,
profit by her misfortunes. This is teaching
he bloody instructions in the bitter letter.

Pittsburgh Chronicle.
This highly popular Pittsburg Daily, ad
ded some $U columns to its dimensions last
week, on account of its largely increasing
advertising patronage. This fact freaks
volumes in favor of the growing prosperity
and influence of Pittsburgh enterprise. The
Chronicle is independent in ' polities, and
discusses all national topics with fairness
ability, but its chief aim is to advance the
business interests of Pittsburg and its sur
roundings and hence, is specially worthy
the encouragement and support of the busi
ness menof the "smoky city." JJay it re
ceive th increasing patronage it merits.
The Forthcoming Message of President
Johnson and the Departmental Eeports.
In the time that intervenes between now
and the session of Congress, next month
when the President's message and the re
ports ot the heads of departments will le
given to the public, we shall doubtless be
favored with abundance of information from
the "knowing ones" as to the contents of
these forthcoming documents, and their
recommendation upon important points or
measures of policy. We have generally
had such advance information in previous
years, and the fact that it has nearly, always
subsequently proved to be all bosh, is not
likely to make it less greedily received this
year. How easy it would be, for exanible,
for O. P. Q. or X. Y. Z. to telegraph from
"i oshington to some of our sensational jour
nals that "President Johnson, in his forth
coming message, will take decided ground
in favor of a peremptory enforcement of our
claims for damages upon England ;" and
what a nice sensation it would be for Wall
street and for the Fenians ! How cheap it
would be to forward a telegram that the
"Secretary of State had just sent on his re
port to the printer, and it contains his very
latest despatches, will exhibit to a startled
country the extremely critical condition of
our relations with France ;" or a despatch
that the Secretary of War would, in his re
port favor the maintenance of our army at
a strength of two hundred thousand, as it
was necessarily to overawe the still rebellious
spirit of the South. In fact, we are already
beginning to have such alleged foreshadow
ings of departmental reports.
A New York contemporary, has a Wash
ington despatch announcing the highly im
portant news that the Secretary of the Treas
ury, in his forthcoming report, will advo
cate the abolition ot the present Internal
Revenue system, and the substitution for it
of a tax upon sales. Now, this would be
highly important if true. But we think it
would be safe to add to the announcement
that its author did not k am the news by
reading it in Secretary McCulloch's forth
coming report, or from any one who had
read said report, or from Secretarj' McCul
loch himself, or from any one to whom the
Secretary told it, He probably either "saw
a man" who told it to him, or found it
among the sediment in the depths of his
own consciousness. In either case it is
neither important nor true, and should have
been "suppressed before it was published,"
as it is calculated only to do harm.
In a few weeks we shall have the Presi
dent's message and accompanying docu
ments ; and it would be as well not to give
credit to, or speculate upon, anything alleg
ed to be in them, until it can be read in the
documents themselves.
The Eoman Problem.
The situation of Pope Pics the Ninth at
Rome is beginnig to be interesting. Noti
fied long ago that the French troops would
be gradually withdrawn from the Eternal
City, he refused to take the hint, as it was
meant that he should, and has preferred
tern poiizat ion toaction. He must be some
what startled by the notice given him, that
the evacuation would commence on the first
of November, which it is said that Count Sar
tiues, the French Minister, has delivered.
It is further stated that two French frigates
had left Toulon on the 28th ult, to take
home a portion of the soldiers which were
st itioned at Rome. The evacuation, accor
ding to previous notice, is to be gradual.
This is the first warning. His Holiness has
hitherto acted upon the policy of "Micaw
ber," and hoped that"something would turn
up." But nothing has turned up, and now
the French evacuation of Rome has com
menced. What will he do? Either he must
be prepared to evacuate with the soldiers,
or he must make terms with Victor Eman
CEL. Hitherto he has obstinate!' refused
to enter into negotiations with him, except
upon such terms as were inadmissible. Ei
ther he must reconsider his determination,
and submit to necessity, or he must prepare
to move. The Italian Ministry,it is stated,
will again propose the opening of negotia
tions as soon a the elections in Italy are o
ver. The Pope will be given another op
portunity, and there is no doubt that it is
the intention of France to spur him up to
decidedaction by the course which she has
The Revolt in Jamaica.
An arrival from Port Antonio brings news
from Jamaica to the 16th of October. The
revolt of the negroes had then been going on
and gaining strength for nine days. The
rebels were in full force in Port Moranet,
and were committing fearful excesses. It
this is to be a war of races in that island, it
will be fearful. There is but a small milita
ry force within reach for the protection of
the whites. On the coast such gunboats
as can be called from near places may pro
tect the few who are fortunate enough to
get under the shelter of their guns ; but in
the interior there is no sort of refuge. The
proportions ot the two races would seem to
preclude any chance of self-defence, for
of the 400,000 inhabitants of the Island,
0,?ly about 10,000 are whites. There are
75,Ot?0 mulattoes, and the remainder, more
than thi'ee hundred thousand, are pure
blacks. -' " . -'r- ' - '
Alex. II. Stephens, has been urged to
run for Congress,in Georgia, but he declines
the use of his name for that position. Can't
take the path, eh?
The Democratic journals, which talk seven
day3 in the week about the dangers of con
solidation and centralization, arc making a
concerted effort to force upon one subordi
nate officer of the Government a larger po
litical power than was ever wielded by a
President. Their purpose" is to settle all
questions ot reconstruction by persuading
Edward McPherson, Clerk of the last House
of Representatives, to put on the roll of the
next House the names of persons sent to
Washington from the Rebellious States.
If put on the roll, "those persons would take
part in the election of Speaker, and proba
bly take their seats in the House. That
would dispose forever of the most import
ant questions touc hing the relations between
the Rebellion and the Government. Con
gress would have no voice whatever in de
ciding them, but would find that the Clerk
ot the House had saved them the trouble
of all legislation on matters clearly within
the scope of legislative authority. The la
test effort, therefore, of Democracy, accord
ing to The World, Herald, Chicago Times,
Cincinnati Inquirer, and the rest, is practi
cally to abolish Congress.
Unfortunately for the Democratic plot,
Mr. McPherson is not disposed to join it.
A statement was printed the other day by a
correspondent of The Evening Post, un
doubtedly well-informed on the point, that
Mr. McPherson had announced that be
would not place on the roll any person claim
ing to be elected from a State that has been
in Rebellion. A still more explicit and pre
cise piece of testimony exists. Mr. Mc
Pherson has stated his views at length in a
letter from which we copy as follows :
"In the several theoriesof reorganization,
the controlling power in the premises is va
riously suppoed ti be lodged sometimes in
the President, sometimes in Congress. The
latter is likely to incline to the latter view,
and In any event Is not likely to permit mem
bers to be forced into the House and Senate
until, In aicirdance with the constitutional
guaranty, those, bodies themselves have pass
ed upon the, claims of the applicants.
"But the law of the case is plain. It
provides in a resolution bunglingly worded,
but prepared and passed with direct lefer
ence to such a contingency as an erfort by a
tricky Clerk to flood tbe House with illegiti
mate members that the Clerk "sliull make
a roll, ard place thereon the names of all
persons, and of such persons only, whose
creden tails show that they ivere. regularly
elected, in ' accordance iclth the laics of their
States respectively, or the laics of the United
States." Stat, at Large, Vol. XII., p.
S04. .
"On this it is clear :
"First: That no "law of the United
States" authorizes the election of represen
tatives in any of the insurrectionary States.
"Second: Ti at no "law of any of. the
States" authorizes an election held at the
Call of a "I'roivisonal Governor," and from
which large numbers of legally recognized
voters the unsworn Rebels are excluded.
"How then can any names be placed on
the roll as from these States?"
Mr. McPherson adds in the Fame letter
that he believes "there can be no legal gov
ernment in any of the insurrectionary States
until Congress recognizes it. Without le
gal government there can, of course, be no
legal representatives to be placed on the
roll." This letter, as the reference to Pro
visional Governmentst'shows, was written
some time since. The recent declarations
of Mr. McPherson are in perfect conformity
with it. His determination not to recon
struct Congress by his individual act is ma
tured by long reflection, has been repeated
ly asserted, and cannot be " shaken by the
inflammatory appeals of journals that have
only just learned to counterfeit the accents
of layalty, and to lewd a tardy support to
the Administration. They are re-enfoiced
by Gov. Perry of South Carolina, who vol
unteers the valuable opinion that the per
sons chosen from his State in November
will have the same right to take their scats
as the regularly elected members from Mas
sachusetts. We don't know a Copperhead
anywhere who isn't of the same mind ; but
so long as the law is plain, and Mr. McPher
son pledged to obey it, the Copperheads are
welcome to their opinions. They will in
vain expect the Clerk to attempt, or the
House to tolerate, an act that would be
equally revolutionary and despotic, and that,
could produce nothing but confusion and
The Union Dead in the Sout&wast.
The same laudable and patriotic spirit which
induced the Government at Washington o
send com missisoners to Virginia, the Car
olinas and Georgia, to disinter the bodies of
Union soldiers and give them a proper buri
al,has caused another to be sent to the Chick
amauga battle-fie'd. Four hundred bodies
have been lifted tenderly from the loughly
made graves in which they were first placed,
and about three hundred of these have been
deposited in the National Cemetery at Chat
tanooga. The bat tie-fields of Lookout Moun
tain, Mission Ridge. Buzzard's Roost, Wau
hatchie and others in ihe Southwest will also
be visited, and the patriot dead removed to
the same cemetery. Watchful and careful
protectors of our soldiers while living,' our
national authorities do not fail to pay that
respect to them when dead which their val
orous deeds entitled them to receive. "

The plan is to work well. 1 :
. The execution of Henry Wirz attracted
crowds of spectators to the Old Capitol on
Friday morning, November 10th. Ac 9 o'
clock a strong military force "arrived, and
the streets in front and ' at the side of. the
building was cleared. Owners of tenements,
from the roofs or windows of which views of
the galiows.could.be had, admitted specta
tors at large prices, and quite a number of
women availed themselves of this opportu
nity to gratify their cariosity. Holders of
tickets were admitted into the prison, through
which they passed into the yard. A rough
gallows had been erected in one corner of
the yard, on the - platform of which stood
four sentries of the Veteran Reserve Corps,
while from the beam dangled the fatal rope
which was to prove a "dt;ad line" to the ty
rant of Andersonville.
Wirz was in his cell, attended by Fathers
Boyle and Wiggott, of the Roman Catholic
C hurch. On Thursday night he ate a hear
ty oyster supper, and then went to sleep at
10 o'clock, reposing quietly until he awoke
at three o'clock on Friday morning. He
then wrote his farewell to his wife, and
made some statements about his connection
with the rebellion, avowing that he had mal
treated prisoners in accordance with orders
from superior officers, but solemnly asserted
that ha had never killed any one, or perpe
trated the cruel acts ascribert to him. Af
ter the sentence was read to him in prison,
Wirz said: "I'm d d if thy Yankee eagle
has not turned out to be what I expected
a d d turkey buzzard." He then desired
that Father Boyle, and his counsel Mr.'
Schade, be sent for, who had a long conver
sation with him.
During the morning Father Boyle admin
istered the sacrament to Wirz, and Father
Wiggett then placed upon the prisoner a
black cambric robe, remarking, as he did so,
"I hope the robe will be turned into a white
oue iti the other world." Wirz, it is sid,
was an inSJel, but of late professed repen
tence, and one of his re'iiom advisers is of
the opinion that he was sincere, and that he
truly repented. Just before the appointed
hour for execution, a young Massachusetts
ofLcial at the prison handed Wirz an auto
graph album, in which be wrote! in a clear,
steady hand, "Old Capitol prison, Novem
ber 10th, 1865, Henry Wirz, Capt. and A.
A. G., C. S. A" 'There," said he, "is
my last signature."
At 10:20 the prisoner accompanied by
Provost Marshal !tuseli and other officers,
and Fathers Boyle and Wiggett, came from
the cell and passed between the line of
guards to the scaffold, where the prisoner
was seated. Amid profound silence Provost
Maashal Russell proceeded to read the order
of the War' Department founded on the
verdict of the Millitary Commission which
tried the prisoner. He wa3 charged and
convicted , , .

that djy and the 10th day of April, 1865, to
the end that the armies of the United States
might be weakened and impaired, and that

the United States might be aided and com
forted." "" Sentence. And the Court do therefore
sentence him (Henry Wirz) to be hanged '
by the neck till he be dead, at such time

States may direct, two-thirds of tbe mem
bers of the court concurring herein ; and
the court also find the prisoner, Henry Wirz,
guilty of having caused the death, in the
manner alleged in specifications 11 to charge

war in his custody, nnd soldiers of the Uni
ted States one occurring, on or about the
15th day of May, 1864 ; another occurring
on or h1kiU- the 11th day ot July, 1S64 ; but
which finding, as here expressed, has not
and did not enter into the sentence of tbe
court as before given." .
The proceedings, finding and sentence of
the court were approved by the proper au
thorities, and Friday, Nov. 10th, designed
as the day of execution. ,- .,- '--
After the reading of the order jras conclu
ded, Wirz conversed with those on the plat
form with seeming calmness and self-possession,
and, it is said, with smiling counte
nance. To his spiritual advisers he said:.
"I am innocent I have to die but lean
die like a man I hope in. the future I
have nothing more to sav." The Priir.
then bade him farewell and those on the
J i latfoMii retired to the railing leaving the
j doomed man in the centre of the structure.
His legs and hands were then tied, the
rope passed round his neck, and the black
cap placed over, hi head. ; He stood erect
without faltering, evidently having nerved
j himself for the solemn event After a tew
! moments of profound silence the drop, at a
preconcerted signal, fell. He.v as consider:
ably convulsed in his legs but the agony was
8nover. A subsequent examination show
. ed his neck was broken by the fall
1 As the sound, occasioned by the fall of the
drop, reached the ears of the crowd on the
outside of the wall, Buouts of approbation
were heard. The body was permitted to
hang about fifteen minutes, when jt was cut
down and carried into the dead room, where
it was placed in a coffin and given in care of
Father Boyle, who, it is said, will have it de
posited in the ; vault of the Catholic Cenje
tery, until the wishes of Mrs." Wirt concern
ing it can be known.
Such has been the termination of the
earthly career of another of the sanguinary
agents of the late slaveholders' rebellion.
That Wirz deserved the penalty which has
been inflicted upon him, there seems to be
little doubt ; yet he, and others who may
suffer a like penalty, are rather to be pitied,
cn account of their being the mere tools of
designing men, or human fiends. Had the
leaders in the rebellion suffered the death
penalty instead of such deluded men as Wirz,
the ends of justice would have been fully es
tablished ; but until the leading actor of the
la!e bloody rebellion receive the merited
punish went for hjs crimes, tlio climax of
justice "'iil be unsatisfied. Bat va, presume,
the. chief rebel will not escape ; for, simulta
neous with the announcement of the execu
tion of Henry Wirz, comes the intelligence
from President Johnson that Jefferson Da
vis is soon to be legally tried for treason a
purpose always entert iined and never for a
moment yielded. The same nerve that saw
the instrument executed will not flinch at
trying the prina'paL The law that estab
lishes Treason as crime, will neither be hard
to find or difficult to construe.
All the Country's woe3 "Democratic."
From the New York Tribune. .
The Rebellion was Democratic. It I roke
out in Democratic States. It was confined
to Democratic States. It was hatched by
Southern Democrats. If was fostered by
Northern Democrats. Democrats officered
the Rebel armyJ Democrats made up its
rank and file. Democrats filled every office
in the Confederate Government, from the
Presidency down to the clerkships and the
messengerships. There wasn't a Republi
can with a shoulder-strap, or a musket, or a
"place," in the whole devilish concern. In
the Democratic City of Washington, under
the Democratic Administration of Buchan
an, the Rebellion was conspired and prepar
ed. A Democratic member of ti at Demo
cratic Administration stripped the North of
arms, and smuggled them over to the South,
and sent the army where it would be una
vailable, or could easily be captured. A
Democratic "member of that same Democrat
ic Administration scattered the navy over
the world so that it could not boused on
the Rebel seaboard. A Democratic Secre
tary of the Treasury plundered his trust to
supply the Rebellion with money. . A Dem
ocratic President, entreated to do something
to save the Nation, refused, declaring and
arguing that the Government could not Con
stitutionally defend itself, and that it was
unlawful to coerce Rebels, and he sat sul
lenly down, like the Democrat and traitor
that he was, and allowed the Nation's arse
nals to be plundered, and the Nation's ships,
navy-yards and fortresses to be seized, and
the rebel armies to be organized, : without
lifting a finger to prevent. Democrats
throughout every , Northern and Western
State applauded the conduct of their Demo
cratic President adopted and defended his
Democratic doctrine, that the Government
had no right to apply force to suppress a Re
bellion and, from the word "Go," politi
cally and personally opposed every legisla
tive, financial, military and moral measure
taken to speedily and successfully prosecnte
the war, and save the Nation's life. The
Democratic all and every of them, with
out one solitary exception. This truth, as
of the GospeL was thus uttered by a Wes
tern orator : ' .
"Let Democratic journals and oiators
howl over the debt and taxes their war has
brought. They but magnify their own sins.
Every dollar of debt is a Democratic legacy.
Every tax is a Democratic gift. Every Gov
ernment stamp 'i a Democratic stick in
plaster. Every person in the United State
drinks in lX-moc;ra"y iu his tea, hii :ffe! and
his whiskey, i i-i the sugar wherewith he
sweetens theru. Each ingredient pays its
quota lor the cost of Democracy to the coun
try. ' The smoker inhales Democracy. The
sick man is physicked with Democracy.
The laboring man gives about one hour's la
bor every day to pay for Democracy. The
capitalist pays one-tenth of his income for
the cost of the Democratic party. Every
transfer of property is saddled with the
Democratic bnrden. Before he is begotten,
the child is subject to the Democratic tax.
From the cradle to the grave he never is
free from it 1 The funeral mourniu? must
first pay the penalty ot Democratic rule, and
a portion of that which he leaves behind
must go into this Democratic vortex. Gen
eration after generation will carry this Dem
ocratic burden from birth to death. But
tor the D 'mocratic party, our people would
hardly have known the nature of taxation.
But for the Democratic party, the hundreds
of thousands of young men whose bones are

lupines iiuw uesoiate. o one can attempt
to deny this indictment. No one can pre

cause for rebellion. Vet it ha the effronte
ry to cry over the burdens of taxation. As
the father ot the Democn tic party, when
he had stripped Job of family and posse
sions charged it to his own Ma, and sought
to draw him from his integrity, so his Dem
ocratic sous now cine forward with equal
effrontery and charge their doings ujKn the
