EETTER FROM SEN. CRIMES.
The Otiumwa Couriir publiihes the

Wapello county. Iowa:
I-cr.LiNGTi.-i, Sept. 1-1, 186-S.
My Dlar tfin; I am astonished
to learn, as I do by: your ttt r of the
12th inst., that any one ha asserted or
believed for one moment that I do not
fully, freely, and as enthusiastically as
I am capable of doing it, support the
entire Republican ticket in the coming
canvass. You say the report i that
I am indifferent to the result "on ac
count uf the uncalled for and unwise
action of the Union Conreution on the
suffrage question." I certainly did re
gard that action as uncalled for and
impolitic, and had I been a member of
that convention I would have opposed
the introduction into the platform of any
new is.-ue upon any new subject, how
ever just I might believe the principle
to be. I would have opposed it because
I believe that there Las been no time
during the la.t four years when it was
more necessary that the Union party
of the nation should present an unbrok
en front and stand as a unit, than at the
present moment, and I would have done
nothing, consented to nothing that would
have a tendency to repel a single voter
from a support of the Union party,
which is a support of the Union itself.
I believe every v:te withdrawn at this
time from thy support of the Union
ticket, withdraws just that much moral
support from the Administration, and

The very fact thru in my view the

issue into the canvass when the minds

We-all know that the Democratic
parly desire and intend to coalesce with
the returned rebels from the South. By
that means, if they can succeed in dis
tracting the supporters of the Govern

they hope to obtain control of the Gov
ernment, and then will follow the as
sumption of the rebel debt, the restora
tion of slavery under a less odious
name, and the return of the leaders of
the rebellion to power. It was to this
end that the farce was enacted a few
weeks ago at Des Moines cf nominat

But of this folly it is hardly worth

make the actors in it ridiculous, and its
only final result will be to add one dis

No, my dear sir, there never was a

citizen to support the Union ticket, what,

THE STEAMBOAT Utli.MlItS.
Wm. Murphy, one of the persons
accused of conspiring to burn steam
boats on the western rivers, has been
brought to trial before a military com
mission in St. Louis. The following
extract we take from the proceedings
of the 21st inst.:
The accused was then arraigned and
pleaded not gtiilty to the several charges
The accused then requested the Com
mission to order the Judge Advocate to
give subpoenas commanding the attend
ance of Jefferson Davis, late President
cf the so-called Confederates States of
America; James A. Seddon, late Sec
retary cf War, C. S. A.; James L.
Trenholm, late Secretary of Treasury,
C. S. A., and Stephen R. Mallory, late
Secretary of the Navy, C. S. A., as
witnesses for the defense.
The Judge Advocate declined to
summon the above named witnesses un
til it could be shown that they were
Defendant then filed an affidavit, of
which the following is the substance:
" Defendant also states that he is
charged with conspiracy to burn and
destroy steamboats and oilier property
belonging to or in the service of the
United States, with intent to aid' the
rebellion against the United States, and
in the specification to said charge the
names of parties are set forth with
whom the conspiracy 13 alleged to have
been made. Defendant states that he
can prove Ly the testimony of said
Davis, Mailory, SodJon and Trenholm
that the parties named in said specifica-
. jitions did not conspire as alleged to
nd destroy boats and other prop-
erty, but that the burning and ces.ruc
tion stt forlll was a ,nilitary measure
of lhe rebel rjovernment at Richmond,
Vat conceived and ordered, by said
(Jovemment, and curried out, so far a
it was carriea QM, by persons in th;
...in.arv anj naVal service of said Gov-
eminent. He furtlu-r states that by
the testimony of said Davis, Trenholm,
Mallory and Seddon he can prove that
the late rebel Government is alone re
sponsible for the conception and execu
tion cf the military measure of turning
and destroying boats and other proper
ty, and that he, the said defendant, was
not one of the persons ordered or em
ployed by them to "burn and destroy
steamboats aod other properly belong
ing to or in the service of the United
States," as set forth in the charge. And
he is instructed by his counsel and ver
ily believes that said Davis, Seddon,
Trenholm and Mallory are- material
witnesses in his case."
?5j "Soldiers, duriog the war. the
Copperheads laughed at your wounds;
they sneered at your scars; they mocked
the corpses of your comrades; they
prophesied your defeat, they hoped for
your disgrace; they prayed for your
overthrow and death; they despised the
! cause for which you were battling; they
were the allies of your murderers.
'Now you have reached home cov
ered with glory; 3ou are welcomed by
the true people of the North; yorj are
radiant with success, and the very men
of whom I have been speaking, crowd
around you and say thty are your
friends. Beware of them all ! They

EtS" The "DiocTatic" Committee
of Connecticut has issued an address
to the ''party" in that State, calling up
on them to defeat the amendment strik
ing out llu! word "white" from the Con
stitution i-nd admitting blacks to the
suffrage. The reason given is "that
while meu must rule Connecticut." As
the blacks are about one in ninety of
the population, the inference that if the
ninety-firtt black man has a ballot he
will rule the ninety white men is vastly
complimentary to the negro. If the
claim that one negro can rule ninety
white men, if given equal rights, is not
negro worship, we should be glad to
learn whr.t is.

ble lo produce the paper outside the

and front its texture and finish lhe least

gtS-i A young orator having written
a speech which he intended to deliver
on a certain occasion, gave it to a friend
to read, and desired his opinion of it.
The friend, after some time, told the
author Le had read it over three times,
the first time it seemed very good, the
second ''ndifTerent, and the third quite
insipid. "That will do," said the au
thor, very coolly, "for I have only to
iepeat it once."

A SHOUT AXSWER.
When Gov. Stone, of Iowa, learned
that Brevet Brigadier General Thomas
Hart Benton, jr., had accepted the nom
ination for Governor, he sent the Gen
eral the following dispatch :
"September 1st, l56o.
'Hon. II. C. Ilenderssn, Marsballtown:
"Please say to Col. T. II. Benton,
Democratic candidate for Governor,
that I shall be gratified to have him
meet me at Boonsboro to-morrow, at
Toledo 5th, Vinton G.h, Waterloo 7th
inst., and other appointments, for joint
discussion of the issues of the day upon
"W. M. STONE,
"Union candidate for Governor.''
The reply was as follows:
"Marshalltown, Sept, 2, 1S65.
"Gov. W. M. Stone, Boonsboro:
"I am not the Democratic candidate
Titos. H. Benton, Jr."
This is sufficiently explicit and lacon
ic. As he denies tha soft impeachment,
the question now arises. Whose candi
date is he ?

EST It is said that the executioner
had much ditliculty in hanging Dr
Pritchard, because of his long hair and
complete beard. The Doctor' case
was the reverse of that of Absalom
whose long hair made his hanging
easy. But then, Absalom wasn't hang
ed by the neck, and might even have
been cut down and saved if Genera
Joab hadn't cut him up by sending
three dans through him. That was
the way in which secessionists were
treated in good old Bible times and
says the Boston Traveler, it wasn't a
bad way except for the sufferers.

A philosophical cibman in
Mobile, thus speaks of the section over
which his wheels make their tracks :
''If you run over a j'oungster down

'the folks don't say nothin' kase they
have got more children than whiles for
'em but you jist run over a goat, or a
kid, or a sow, or a pig, and blest if a
mob ain't arter you in two miniu!"

AX I.MrORTAIVT CORRECTION.
A verbal error, which has appeared
in some of the newspapers, has been
deemed of sufficient importance for
official correction. The Secretary of
State says the section in which it occurs
is as follows :
And be it further enacted, That all
persons now by law entitled to a less
pension than heretofore specified, who
shall have lost one foot and one hand
in the military service of the United
States, and in the line of his their
duty, shali be entitled to twenty dollars
This section, the Secretary says, is
printed in the pamphlet edition of the
laws of the last session of Congress
precisely according to the original roll,
with the exception thai the word "his"
is underscord, t. e., put in italics, and
the word ' their" placed in brackets, the
reason for which is obvious. The error
is that newspapers have printed the
word "or" instead of the word "and
between the words "foot" and "hand."
The Acting Commissioner of Pensions
says without this correction the busi
ness of the buseau will be uselessly in
creased without benefit to any one.

5fA capital , story is told of tha
French novelist, Alexandre Dumas. At
the Theater Ilistorique a rich tradesman
one of the shareholders of the theater
solicited the honor of an introduction
to him. On the favor being granted ho
thus addressed Dumas: You're a mulat

novelist, wondering what would cotno
next. "Then of courao your father was
a negro?" "Of course, he was," replied
Dumas, winking at those present. "Then

roars of laughter from the bystanders.
Valla.vdiguam for Senator. Tho
Cleveland Leader states that a part of
the Democratic programe of that Stateis
yet kept scrupulously secret, but never
theless fully resolved on by those "in tha
ring," is nothing less than the carrying
of the next Legislature and the election
of Clement L. Vallandigham as the next
U. S. Senator of Ohio. The Democracy
do not, of course, expect to carry the
State on the general ticket, nor will they
attempt it; but they will lend every effort,
by colonizing votes, by trading votes, by
spending special labor on every district
that can be possibly carried by a Demo
crat, to obtain control of the next Legis
lature and all to the end that they may
get Vallandigham, the dirtiest dog among
all the traitors and political scoundrels
of the country, into the U. S. Senate.
That is an ambition entirely worthy of
the Democratic party.
