An Extraordinary Escape, A Scotch paper—the Haddington Courier— has an extraordinary story of tbe escape of -a miner who fell down tbe shaft ofa coal-pit : ear Tranent. An old shall was made use 01 to open np a communication with a new pit recently sunk. About half way down tbe shaft, which was 27C feet deep,.a wooden staging, composed of strong two-inch planks, was built, completely Intersecting the down shaft, to afford a firm, looting to the minors entering the side shaft. At the bottom of tbe dors shaft was a considerable accumulation of water, as is usual in pits which have not been worked for some time. On the occasion in Question, a young man named ilylne, rather than wait for the com paratively tedious process of being lowered down by the windlass, said he would slide' down the rope. - Disregarding tbe j advice of bis companions, be got upon the rope, and they were in another moment horrified to tec that he had lost hold of it. The crash of bis body against the wooden staging was heard, and they were making preparations to descend for the mangled remains, when a cry for assistance was beard coming np from the very bottom of the pit. The rapidity of Tils descent of 170 feet had propelled him through the two inch boards as neatly as if his liody had been a rille bullet, and with about m little injury.- for not a bone was bro ktnand,excopt a small scratch on the chin,his jiereon did not. bear tbe slightest mark of coming In contact with anything during the descent. Falling into the water at the boi-. tom, he had, on coming to the surface, prov-. idcntlally thrown his arms oversome wooden frame-work which happened to be there and - had thus been saved. The was found here, and was conveyed home quite con scious, and under medical care was soon able to go out of doors. The 6Tory has certainly the appearance of a fable; jef If It is possible to shoot a candle through an inch board, why cannot a man be shot through a two-inch plank? Tbe narrative is at least amusing, and anybody who chooses can have the liberty of doubl ing that it is well authenticated. «A tsoa of abe People.’) A journal of Lecnago cites a curious-scene dt improvisation ol which Garibaldi ,lwa bttnlhc hero in that town-.

TOL. XX. RECONSTRUCTION. Opinions of Generals Lee and Beauregard, Another Letter Prom Governor Patton, of Alabama. [Correspondence of the New York Herald.] Lxzzsqtok, Ya., March SI. After a tardy and disagreeable ride over tbe most miry road, ffomthe Naturalßridgi to this place, that it has ever been my mis fortune to witness, I arrived here this cveniEg, having accomplished a distance of fourteen miles in seven hours, which will give a faint idea of the horrible state of the roads In this country. Having a letter of Introduction to General Lee, I called at his residence late this even ing and was received by himself in a kind but courtly and dignified manner. I found him to be all that has been said of him as a gentleman, at-d very shortly felt completely ut ease lu I:s presence. Hu was affable and very agreesblu. and seemed to be well in- Termed upon mutters in his .immediate lo cality and tbe ctmdlilou ol the State general- Iv, in which ho takes the deepest interest, the welfare of the people' being evidently most at heart. He ; discussed without any reserve whatever all subjects on this head. ' The General said bo believed the people in this section were probably in a better con dition than those in almost any other part of the State, rone of them being tn actual want of the necessaries ot life. Some cases of ex treme destitution had recently been brought to his notice by letter, in the southern portion of the State, and he mentioned one family of distinction who were suffering. He also re nted, with some feeling, tbe cose of a lady m Alabama, who had written to her sou, then at his college, to come home immedi ately, as she.could no longer afford to pay his fees, and stating that of all the negroes they had had, every one had de -1 eerttd her save one, even those whom she before considered - most faith ful. -This was on the line of some railroad, by which the negroes in its vicinity had nearly all emigrated to other States. Speak ing of the colored population, to whom he is strongly attached, their propensity to congregate in towns and clues was to be deplored, rather than to work steadily on farmß'Where their labor was at the present time so essential, and where they would be amply remunerated. A great many healthy, able-bodied men In this town were living on tbe earnings of their wives, who washed for the students at college, while they conld ob tain plenty of wprk, in the country. The General also remarked that a letter he had received from Genera! Hampton had men tiuned that a great deal of destitution ex isted in both S"Utb Carolina and Mississippi. I remarked, “General Hampton has been giving some sensible advice to tbe negroes hi Columbia.” To which he replied, “So I have hcaid. Tbcv will soon, doubtless, be able to judge for themselves, and should be educated to such a standard.” Kaowingbls reticence with regard to matters politic, I al luded as delicately as possible to the reports that have recently been promulgated in the newspapers purporting to give tils views as to the course the Southern people should pursue under the present' circumstances, when be eaid, “You must excuse me, sir, from expressing myself upon that sub ject. My position Is a verv peculiar one. I am a parollcd prisoner, ; and have no right to speak upon political mat ters. and anything! may have said has only been amotg my immediate circle of friends, from whom it doubtless escaped nnlnten- 1 tonally* and reached the newspapers.” I then remarked, *‘The reports alluded to have been published io the cutlrc press of the country, and in this way will have a de cided effect with the Southern people,” which elicited the following: “I wish tne Southern people to take such measures as will most speedily restore them to their prosperity, with that view I was in favor ol a convention to accept the terms of the Military Bill, bnt now 1 learn that the Sup plementary BUI places that power In the hands' of the military commander.” •• I re marked such was the case, when lie said, *‘l hope that every citizen who can vote, will vote so as to secure the speedy restora tion and welfare of the country.” During our conversation the General said be disliked being paraded before the public in newspapers; but of euch importance and general interest to the publip are his opin ions at the present time, I feel it a duty to give latm so far as I succeeded in obtaining them in a fair and legitimate manner. lie coniines himself io his uwu sphere uf duties aid never even reads a newspaper, so that what he knows ot the situation is heard in conversation with others. Hercmarkedthat he beard the Legislature were to reassemble, but be thought if tbc business of the session was completed they would be more wise in staying at home —an opinion io which nn nitrons citizens of Virginia will concur. It is a mtewortby feet that while' at all previous sessions « the College and Insti late here quarrels and disturbances between the stndei ts aid cadets were of frequent oc currence, tut, such Is the Influence of Gene ral Lee’s presence, and so great is the re spect in which he Is held by all, that they will make any sacrifices rather than have a quarrel that might reach his ears, and now a spirit of emulation for good behavior Is en gendered between them. Views ot General Beauregard. New O bleaks, La.. March 28,1667. Wm. H. C.King, Editor or the Hew Orleans Timet, New Orleans, La.: - Dear Sib: ' Tou have done me the honor to call for my opinion relative to the ac tion of the South under the Military Bill. Having seldom taken any part in politics, X do not feel well qualified to advise on so momentous a question. Nevertheless, os the same desire to obtain my views has been manifested from various quarters, I shall not shrink from the responsibility of expressing them, in the hope that they may tend to quiet the public mind, so Justly alarmed’at this moment. -In my humble opinion, we have but one of two things to do—resist or sub mit. Tte first is inadmissible iu our pain lully exhausted condition. Fourjears ofa desperate war have taught us that theargu ment of the sword can no lougcrtbc resorted to by ua to redress our grievances. We must, therefore, . submit; but with that calm dignity becoming our zeonhoed and our , lost independence.. Having been overpowered In the late struggle we can submit to the harsh and ungenerous conditions of our conquerors- without dis honor, and wc must adopt the least of two evils; a futile resistance would only cause our rivets to be driven closer; wo must then acquiesce or leave the country. But wc love too dearly the land ourol birth to abandon it In itss everest hour of trial. We should avoid, also, bringing it, by Internal dissensions to the condition of poor Mexico, and tbe un fortunate South American Republics.: With regard to tbe suffrage of the Frecdmen, however objectionable it may he at present, it is an element of strength for tbe future. If properly handled and directed we shall de feat our adversaries with their own weapons. Tbe negro Is Southern bora; with a little education and some property qualifications, he can be made to take sufficient interest in tbe affairs and prosperity of tbe South to insure an vote on his part. In onr future political con tests with the North, on protective tariff, internal Improvements, &c., the frecdmen of the South will side with the whites of the South and of the West, and they will thus contribute to give us hack the influence we tonneriv uaa in tbe councils of the nation. Our people bhoold understand that the Radi cals can remain in power only so long as the public excitement is kept up; as with the • nrbid waters of , the Mississippi River, the •edimcntsry particles arc kept up at the sur face only so long os tbe waters are in motion ; tbe instout tbe current Is checked those par ticles fall to tbe bottom. Thus will it be with the Radicals when peace and quiet are restored to the coun try. The Conservatives will. then take the reins in their own hands, and the Constitutional laws of the land will once I more prevail. I remain yours respectfully, G. T. Beaubbgabd. LctterfrMii Governor Patton with ttegare to tbe Proposed Appeal to the Courts. .. Executive DEPAirnmKT, t Moktt.omkbt, Ala., MarcbS". J non. Albert Voorhles, Lieutenant Governor of Louisiana, New Orleans: A heavy press of business has prevented an cai lier reply to your favor of the 6th inst. You perhaps have seen in the public prints a letter which 1 wrote a short time since on the general political situation. I scut you a copy of the ilonlgomery Advertiser which contained the letter. •• It seems to me that it is the true feeling of the Southern people to contribute their best influence In favor of an early organiza tion oi their, respective States; in accord ance with the requirements of the recent re construction act. Congress claims the right to control this whole question. In my hum ble judgment it Is unwise to contend longer against its power, or to struggle further’ against its repeatedly expressed will. I T um clearly of the opinion that an appeal to the Courts would accomplish no good. • If a test case were bioughtbefore the judiciary, It wou’d open up a series of the most com plicated questions which perhaps ever en gaged the attention of any tribunal. Ques-, lions of such vast, magnitude could not speedily be disposed of. They would neces sarily require much time, and before a con clusion could be reached, the Southern States. In all probability, would bo roily reorganized, under the Congressional plan. Indeed the Supplemental hill provides specifically for a reorganization; and the onlv practical question is, who will partici pate in the work. . If the many donotco optiate in the movement and give It a proper, shape, the few will carry it to completion, and there is :no telling what discrimination may be mode against the non-actlonists. .. . Tory respectfully; 1 , /R. Mi Patton Base Balu—Those who take an Interest fn this inaplring game, will rejoice to ece the welcome tokensof returning summer.

To the Editor of the Chicago -Tribune; in jour issue of Monday, the l&coi April, ap i eats a communication trom Joseph linras, v<hich grossly misrepresents me in tbe pa ll :ook in exposing the Ferris “ dark circle” h im oug. The following statement of facte will snfll • lently refnie bU assertions: On Frida; evening, March 15tb,1 attended a nance upon the solicitation of some friend*, and at tbe request of the Ferrises, who desired to c onvince me of my errors. At a certain stage of •bo proceedings 1 opened a dark lantern, expect ing to delect the ‘‘ controlling spirit' 1 In the act cf perpetrating a fraud. Mr etiort was a failure, tbe light not being instantaneous, and giving ibe spirit time to withdraw tbe cane,wblch was discovered near the bureau. Mr. Uocsa rep resents me as expressing mytelf satisfied that mere was no utekery, implying a conviction on my part that epiiiia were tbe operators. This is untrn". I Mated to answer to the questions put to me, that from w hat X had seen I believed the whole tiling lo be an Imposition. Having completed my investigation—tbe result' of which appeared in the TnnncKE—the following Monday, Mr. Lines?. supposing the paragraph was a n port of Friday evening’s periormance, called upon mo in reference to tbe matter. It appeared from onr conversation that he was referring to Friday eienti-g, while my communication tied reference to another night’s perfomance at which Mr. Unerawas not project, and when we detected Mrs. Forris with the gmtafem her hand. In the face of all this Mr. Llncse writes what ho Is pleased to term a refutation of tbe article in quetnion referring to the doings of. Friday and Monday evenli.gr, and then conanes himself entirely to an account of Friday evening’s per formance, for which I claimed nothing. To what miserable shifts arc the dark circle worshippers reduced in propping up their base impositions on tUC public. W. F. dAXIESON. Legal Metes. “ Justice Sutherland, of the Supreme Court of New York, has rendered a decision that practi cally reduces gold from a currency to a commod ity. At a time when gold wos the standard cur rency an agreement was made to pay a certain sum in gold. Alter the act declaring greenbacks to be legal tenders the amount was tendered, not in gold, according to the contract, but in national paper currency. Upon this tbe question arose, and the Justice decided the tender to be good.”— Exchange. The same question was decided a year since In the Superior Court, of Chicago, by Judge Gary. The suit was against a banker of Chicago to re cover on a certificate of deposit,of gold. The Court beld. among other matters, that as tbe judgment must be for dollars, and as it could not cxcced|lho amount oi the demand, the act of Congress having made greenbacks a legal tender, the judgment could be, therefore, satisfied b; tbe payment of the judgment in dollars of green backs.

There was considerable difficulty expe rienced by tbcaicamcrs In reaching the spot. The Tltawoith came to a stand-stlil in tbe mud on EUzle ftreet and before water could be thrown on the- fire -toe building was nearly destroyed. The vicinity was thickly studded with small cot tages,and only the most active exeitions of tbe firemen kept the flames from spreading.

By a process ot combustion !n retorts, & corpse of ordinary dimensions may be made to yield twenty-five cubic metres of Illumin ating..gas, which, at a cost of twenty-five centimes per cubic metre, would give a value of about eight francs for a deceased friend of about medium size.” -Bailroad Travel In Europe.

It will also, be seen that Russia and Prussia accommodate the working classes at the cheapest rite, while the tariff of Great Britain and Ireland is the highest of all for first, second and third-class carriages and express trains. It must, however, be home In mind that in those foreign conLtries where tbe rail ways do not belong to the State the share holders receive considerable Government ns sistance in consideration of tbeir being oblig ed to adopt a low tariff. The rates per mile on these roads, reduced to our currency, will not bring travel to as low a standard as in this country; unless we take their third class carriages. ' 1 On tbeir first-class and express trains the average is from four cents per mile to six and a half cents per mile ; on,the second and third from two and a quarter to three and llu ee-quarter vents per mile: Fatal Accident to a Citizen of Detroit* [From the Detroit Union, April 5.J At an early boar yesterday, Messrs. Wm. IT. Burk, of the Commercial Advertiser, and George Slocum, of the . firm of Slocum ,& Thompson, ticket agents and bankers, Trent to the vicinity of the River Rouse'on a duck-hunting expedition. Arriving there, tbCT took a row-boat and went out a distance of two or three miles on the river, where they put out their decoys and commenced operations. Nothing occurred to mar the pleasure of the day’s sport until about 'live o’clock Id the afternoon. Mr. Burk’s gun was deposited in the bottom of the boat, in close proximity to Mr. Slocum’s leg, and thefoiraerwas at the oars while thelatter wes engaged In pulling In one of the decoys. One ot the wires attached to the apparatus accidentally caught the hammer of the pm, and discharged it. The entire charge look effect ib Mr, Slocum’s' leg, jnst below the knee, shattering It In a frightful manner, and breaking the none. Air. Burk at this juncture saw that nothing could be done, for ibo suffering man until • bo reached, the shore, except to tightly bandage his leg above i he wound, and thus stop tho flow of bleed, which was very profuse. This he did with a handkerchief that ho had in his pos session, and with all the speed: possiolo, rowed to the shore, a distance 1 of two and a half miles, arriving there about seven o’clock. The Band BUI Hotel hclngthc nearest house, Mri Bark landed, and with assistance; the wounded man was carried there and cared for. A physician was called from :Fort Wayne, who rendered all the assistance in his power, but to no avail. From the loss of blood and prostration, Mr. Slocum died at half-poet nine o'clock. A Bloody Tragedy. [From the Bruwi.bville(xcxas)Kancnero.March 15.1 The tragedy enacted night before last, re aulting In the killing of John P. Hinds, and the drowning of the murderer W. B. Jack son, would have created an excitement; any where else but on the Rio Grande. Here such things arc taken as a matter of cbnrsc, acd they pass by as commonplace a flairs. Indeed such things arc commonplace; quite too common to be cither creditable or bene ficial to our city. John P. Hinds was a man some sixty years old ; a peaceable, well disposed old man. Jackson, the mnrdercr, was abont'thirty, and apneared the very pink of gentility and perfection. Hinds was “in hls caps/’ and Jackson was two drinks started. Hinds was not only old but weak; Jackson was not only young, but athletic. ' Hinds was:a na tive of New York ; he leaves a family who are in Washington City, a son abd a daugh ter being clerks in some of the departments.. Jackson Is from Baltimore ; beyond which wc know nothing cf him. • , On the night of the murder the pair were great bobashcclics; and as Jackson was so ber, appeared to have the old man under hls protection. At about nine o’clock they went together to the house of. a colored woman of “highrespectability.” Jackson, after they had been there gassing for a short time; In sisted upon seeing the old min ’home!; and assumed a sort of guardianship over him. The old man at once flew in a pet; declaring that he needed no protection; /was 1 not a bigger, and commenced to strike Jackson. The latter drew hls little pocket pistol and Ured, but evidently with the Intention; of frightening the old half-crazy, unarmed man This, however, only rendered the olp man mere furious. - Jackson, then Bred a second fchet which entered the old man’s heart, pf(P duebg death without a groan, struggle or quiver. ; | • ;■; After striking a light to assure himself that the old man was quite dead, of i course Jackeon fled. All murderers flee. lie took to the river, and in his attempt to swim to the land of God and Liberty, was drowned. He called for help when near the steamboat Matamoras; Captain Sam Dalzell went to his assistance just in time: to . sec him sink. Thus the murdered and murderer took their flight heavenward together. And thus ended a tragedv which would have created a sensation anywhere but on this border. Present Condition of the Slave Trade. The committee of the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society have addressed Lord Stanley, the Secretary of Foreicn [Affairs, letting forth the present state of the African glare trade. The officers of the cruising equadron.rcport .au almost entire cessation of the export from the west coast of Africa and from Congo; owing, it is believed, to the vigorous efforts of General Dolce, the late Governor-General of Cuba, to break ■ up the trade on the Island. The new Governor- General is represented ’to he favorable to the slave franc, and already several cargoes have been landed on the island, numbering at least six thousand slaves. The commit tee deplore the increase of the slave traffic from the Portuguese possessions on the east' coast. The creator number of the captives would appear to bo carried off to the Como ro Islands and some narts of Madagascar, to Zanzibar and other convenient resorts, to be thence transferred, after sale, to ports In Ihe Bed Sea, whence many find their way into Nubia and Upper Egypt, and also into Arabia. 1 fHasontr isoticga. \TABOFIC--Tiicre will be a Regular iJIX CooTocaiion ol Lafayette Chapter No. 3.
