eld man bad well recovered the use of
his eyes. When he had, however, he
merely glanced up at the sky, saw that
it still stormed, shook his head, hailed a
passing cab, and jumped in, saying :
To the Perfect cf Police, in haste,"
and away he went
We will now follow the cab containing
the masked stranger, which at once car
ried hirn back from whence he started
and hastily alighting he entered, but, in
stead cf proceeding to the chamber of
death, as before, he now opened the door
of a room situated cn the first floor in
which he found seated three persons of
distinguished appearance ; they were
quitly-pa?4aking.of winebfjyde a table.
All is well," said he, doffing the
maik, and revealing a face anything but
handsome, though of a somewhat stern
and forbidding expression.
But do you think the priest will keep
a stilftongue in his head !' inquired" one
who, by his dress denoted tha physician.
Undoubtedly ; he is one of us, and,
further, I well nigh scared him out of
his skin ; so there is nothing to fear irom
him. Dut I dread this work."
"Be cautious, count don't waver but
remember our oath. It must be done.
Already our President and cine mem
bers are in the clutches of the police and
were it for naught else but revenge. I
-would kill her." exclaimed one of the
tliree, with all the veherr.er.ee and impel
uosity ot a trenenman.

.. With which all three left the room,
leaving the count looking sad and deject
ed enough, for be it known, he did really
leve that is, as far as he was capable of
loving his fair kinswoman, and had
actually proffered her hand in marriage;
in doing which, however, he had more
than one object first, of course, he de
sired to gratify his passion, and this was
most apparent; but under all was tne
secret purpose of (as she had justly sus
pected) securing to himseli ner weaitn,
into the possession of which, it should he

was once confiscated1) permanently rein

remembered, adopted this delicate policy
to ingratiate himself into the good gra
ces of the nobility, whom he was anxious
to have reccirnize him as Emperor, if
not King, of France, hence the wealth
of our heroine of which we speak, and
which, failing to gain by marriage, the
count hoped now to secure by her death,
and with this pleasing prospect he now
consoled himself, while the others pro
ceeded to the chamber of death, into
which we find them assembled, all
masked, for they dreaded the gaze of
She seemed perfectly calm when they
entered, and apparently engaged in
prayer, which they seemed loth to inter
rupt, 60 they, in silence, stood by, wail
ing for her to finish her devotion.
Very near half an hour had elapsed
since the priest had left her presence,
and it was with increasing hope that
each moment now passed ; till presently
the physician became impatient, jingled
his probe and -scalpel together, and at
length actually bade her haste. She
pleaded, and was again permitted to go
on until again interrupted, and again
ehe pleaded a moment more ; but he
protested and presently bade his assis
tants advance with the basin, which was
placed beside the bed. Then directing
each to lay hold of her frame on either
side he seized her arm, and was in the
Tery act of reopening the wound, when
suddenly the door opened, and in walked
not the count as they supposed but a
rery gentlemanly sort of a person, all
smiles and graces, who excused himself
for this intrusion, 8nd then drawing from
his pockets three handcuffs, two of which
he laid upon the table, the other of
which he quietly slipped ;pcntve dumb

their custody. They r.il knew their fate,
as they submitted without a murmur.
As they were led down the hall, they
met their friend the priest, who politely
recognized the count with a bow, and
then passJ on to the chamber.
Here he found the young creature he
had thus marvellously rescued from cer
tain death. But she was insensible,
through a combination of terror, exhaus
tion and joy. He as not long, however,
in restoring her; and then well, we
shall not pause here to describe the
cene that ensued, or recapitulate the
msny words of thanks and gratitude she
poured out upon the worthy priest, who
wis, to tell the truth, as happy as she.
Suffice it then to say, they parted very
good friends, and in a short time after,
he officiated at a marriage, where, it
was reported by the crowds of Republi
cans who so delighted to level all distinc
tion, that a sous lieutenant was wedded
to a countess of great wealth, and that
report, it is unnecessary to say, was true.
The count and his companions were
incarcerated in the jail, and that is the
last that was ever known of them.
Hence it will be seen how rapid and
eure were the French police, who with
no other clue than a bit of blood stained
bandage in the door-way of a house
somewhere within the limits of Paris,
succeeded in the short space of half an
hoar, in ferreting out and bringing the
offenders of the law to its tribunal.

Oinaha,Jan. 20lh, 1863.
Admitting for argument sake that the
Miliiary Governments established in and
for the Southern States, are as tyranous
as the President, the Democrats, and the
Rebels represent them to be, still we
have no sympathy for the unrepented
rebels, whose conduct has made such
ffovernment necessary. onsrress is
willing, and more than anxious that the
men ot tne Doutn may nave uovern
ments of their own formation, eo they
are republican in form, and give prom
ise, ever so slightly of remaining loyal
to the union. We then say that if the
present government in the rebel States
is obnoxious, galling, or intolerant, the
conditions on which the citizens of the
South may change it for cne more suita
ble, are so wisa, lenient, and just, that if
they will not comply therewith, will not
"look and live will not accept the sit
uation ; or will not come back into the
Union upon terms of loyalty to the Gov
ernment, and injustice to none of its
subjects; in other words, if they are
determined not to be reconstructed, un-
ess upon their own terras, then we most
pmphatically say that their appeals to the
national Congress to save them from the
'dominion of an alien and inferior race"
will not reach the Republican heart.
Democrats may rain tears of sorrow
sorrow, not because they are badly gov
erned, but because the present milita
ry Governments, and because any re
constructed governments likely to be ac
ceptable to the country, would be alike
unavailable for the trusts and uses of
the Democratic party. Men true to the
Union, to the Government, and to the fu
ture good and prosperity of the country,
are not likely to care whether the Dem
ocratic policy is sustained or ruined, so
that the best interest and good faith of
the nation is cared for, and untarnished
in the reconstruction of the country".
The Republicans are men who are
above mere party considerations. Men
who left the ranks of the Democracy,
the Whig, the Abolitionists, and have
united on a common platform for the
country's good. They are statesmen.
who have no party interest to subserve,
so that the beloved country is at peace,
prosperous, united and happy. So long
as such men have the controlling power
in the land, the nation will rest content
ed, it is only the fear that they may be
undermined and their power usurped by
the active and zealous place hunters and
demagogues of the counliy, that renders
the affairs of the government unstable
or uncertain. It then behooves every
true lover of his country, every well
wisher of his country's good, to be ac
tive, walchful, and vigilant, to see that
the power of the Republican party is un
trammelled by irreligious, dissipated, and
unprincipled leader. To purify the
stream at the foundation head, and to
eee that it is uncorrupted, evea to the
Delta surrounding the While House.

RrowiiTllIc City Election.
,The Republican Club of this city have
called for a Republican Convention to
meet at the office of Messrs. Tipton,
Hewett & Church, on the evening of
March 26th, for the purpose of nomi
nating candidates for ihe various corpo
ration offices of this city.
The County Central Committee at
their last meeting, also recommended
the nomination and election of Republi
can candidates for every office in the
gift of the people.-; . .. :
We hope every Republican within the
corporation will attend the Convention,
and not only attend, but express his
views with regard to the policy to be
pursued, and if the Convention decides
to make nominations, let each man state
his preferences for the men to be selec
ted. The Convention should present a
good ticket. Do not sit quietly and see
bad nomination made, either through
modesty, or the fear of hurting some
body's feelings. No man should be cho
sen merely because somebody presents
his name. Each nomination should be
well considered. The selection of good
officers is very important. Experience
for ten or twelve years past, has shown
our citizens that it is sometimes difficult
to procure suitable persons to fill teveral
of the offices especially marshall and
mayor. No city office is now so trivial,
a3 to render it immaterial who fills it.
It is difficult to say which office will not
during, the year become the most impor
tant. The interests of Rrownville are be
coming of more and -more . importance
every year. The future of our city may
be vastly affected by the policy of our
City Council, hence the importance cf
selecting men of energy, experience
and ability cautious and economical, yet
free from timid old fogyism. Even the
prosperity and business f Brownville
the coming summer may be much influ
enced by the action of the Council
far more than most people imagine.
It is more important this season than
usual that Republicans, where they are
in the majority, should carry their mu

Wasiiiwgton, March 13.
Early this morning Washington as
sumed that active, excited appearance
for wrhich it was so noted during the re
cent war, when the city was hourly an
ticipating an attack from the rtbel hosts.
Notwithstanding the fact was well known
that no person would be admitted to the
Senate without a ticket, it served not to
keep multitudes from hastening there
with very faint hopes of obtaining an en
trance. The doors of the Senate wing of
the Capitol were thrown open at eleven
o'clock, and throngs of people hastened
through the halls, corridors and galleries.
The police arrangements were excellent
and the scene was not marked with those
violent demonstrations so often witnessed
at the Capitol.
At 13 o'clock, when the Senata was
called to order, not twenty Senators were
at their desks, while the galleries were
clmost entirely filled, with the excepiion
of the diplomatic gallery. It was notice
able that no colored people were admitt
ed into the galleries, and two thirds of
the others present were lacjies, but few
gentlemen being fortunate enough to ob
tain tickets, At one o clock senator
Wade vacated the President's chair and
Chief Justice Chase, entering by a rear
door, ascended the steps and took posses
sion. After the SergeanNat-Arms had
made proclamation, Mr. Howard moved
the House of Representaives be notified
that the trial was about to commence.
The Journal was then read by the Sec
retary of the Senate. The chamber be
came very still, and the scene was solemn
and impressive, the occupants cf the
galleries leaning forward to catch every
At a few minutes past one the front
door of the Senate Chamber was opened,
and the Board cf Managers, with the ex-
ception of Messrs. Butler, entered
slowly and took their teats around the
table to the left of the Chif Justice set
aside for them. Then came the House
of Representives, who likewise took seats
to the rear of the Senators.
By direction of the Chief Justice the
roll was then called, and those Senator;
who were absent on the organization of
the Court were sworn in, including Gen.
Vickers, of Maryland. After all the
Senators had taken tha oath, the Sergent-
at-Arms, by direction, called in a loud
voice "Andrew Johnson," the accused,
three times without any response, how
ever, being given.
On motion, his counsel were then noti
fied to appsar, and tbey did so, being
Henry Stanberry, Judge Nelson, of Ten

"Mr. Nelson followed, enlarging on the
same views as his colleague.
Mr. Stanberry expressed great surp
rise at this claim put forward by tha
Managers, saying there seemed to be a
disposition to hurry thro1 this momentous
trial a3 if it were a case before a police
court; he argued from the working of the
other rules that the appearance day was
not intended to be the day for answering
and trial day. He said two of the Pres
ident's counsel were not present; that no
apportunity had been offered for the
preparations of a defense or call of
witnesses: and that in the worst days of
the Star Chamber such attempt to hurry
through a trial had never been made
He spuke very warmly, saying- there
seems to-have been a trap set for the
President and his counsel.
Mr. Batler asked to be heard on be
half of the managers, and asked why
railroad speed should not e used on this
trial. He contended that the rules and
precedents of ordinary courts were not
applicable to this trial. In ordinary trials
no dangers, resulted from deloyjin this case
the necessity for prompt action was pres
sing, and the respondent at the Bar con
trolled the power of the nation, and might
in any moment of passion, prejudice or
wrong, use it for the injury and ruin of
the country. The business of the War
Department would stop until the result
of this trial was reached. The pulse of
the ration beats in perturbation while
this trial goes on; he claimed an early
day should be fixed on for the defendant's
appearance, and if then he can show
that he has not had lime to prepare,
grant him the indulgence of farther time.
We, on the part of the House of Rep
resentatives, which we are here repres

WAssiwcTOJf, March 16th.
It is positively known that spras of the
Presidents connsel were both greatly sur
prised and very much discouraged by the
temper of the Senate regarding the ap
plication for continuance. It appears
that Mr. Johnson and those immediately
around him had great confidence that
enough Republicans would go with the
Democrats to secure all the time that he
asked. Up to Friday evening he had
hopes of delay, but after the action of
the Senate was made known to him he
lost hope and became despondent. The
greatest possible effort will be made to
