This morning the House has presented quite an animated appearance. A large number of resolutions have beeu introduced relating prin cipally to financial questions and to investiga tion into Executive couduct. One of the most interesting incidents of the session, was the reading of an autograph letter from the Emperor Alexander of Russia in res ponse to Joint Resolutions adopted at the last session, congratulating the author of Russian Emancipation on his escape from assassination. That cougflffulatiou was adopted, it will be re membered, with hut one dissenting voice, Syd enham E. Aucona, a Copperhead from Penn sylvania. He will pass into history as an in dorser of assassination when directed against Emancipators. When the Clerk read the title of the Execu tive coiniuuuicatiou containing the letter, Mr. Maynard of Tenn., always impressive and nev er failing to secure attention, rose and asked for its readiug. The Clerk proceeded to read in the chop-stick style common to them, which rushes out the first part of a senteuce with all the force of vigorous lungs, and then suddenly chops it off towards the end. It is very dis agreeable. The letter will be sent by telegraph. When the reading of the friendly sentences was concluded, a hearty round of applause re sponded thereto. PERSECUTION Ot SOUTHERN UNIONISTS. Mr. Dawes of Mass, offered a resolution di recting that Mr. Pike’s special Committee to inquire iuto the release of the South Carolina murderers of certain Maine soldiers, l>e also directed to inquire iuto the case of Henry Mill er, now confined at Waterborough, S. C., un der sentence of death as a deserter and spy from the rebels, it appears Henry Miller is a German Unionist who was residing iu the Palmetto State when the rebellion begun. To escape draft he liid himself, but was discovered and forced into the rebel army. When Sher man marched from the sea through the Caro liuas, Miller deserted. He gave information of the concealment of arms, ammunition, horses, etc., and piloted a detachment to their capture. Gen. Sherman seut the family north. They remained with a brother in Saugus, N. Y., till the war closed, when the wife returned South and the husband followed soon after. A few months ago, Miller was arrested as a deserter and spy, and put in prison. The indictment was changed to highway robbery, upon which he was convicted and sentenced to death. Mr. Dawes stated he called on the President on Sat urday and presented the facts. Mr. Johnson telegraphed Gen. Sickles and his reply con veyed information as to the nature of the charge. Horace Maynard asked Mr. Dawes to amend so that the Committee might investigate other cases and report such legislation as may be necessary to prevent these persecutions of Un ionists. He said such eases as Miller was but part of a system existing in the unrepresented states, and cited an indictment found iu North Carolina against a Mr. Nelsou of Tenn., sou of a former representative iu Congress. The ac cusation is murder, the fact that Nelson shot a rebel while with his command on a raid iu North Carolina, ft is reported that Worth has made a requisition on Brownlow tor the body of Nelson. Of course ho will not get him.— That iH. not the way the Parson-Governor does business. On Saturday last 1 had a long interview with a Northern man who has just escaped from out the “mouth of Hell”— i. e., South Carolina.— I used the word “escaped” because it expresses the fact exactly. Mr. Davis, (that is the name of my informant) was a member of the New York Legislature in 18ti'1, a Democrat, he was, however, loyal. After Lee and Johnston sur rendered he went to Georgia, where at Augus ta he made a speech in favor of “My Policy’’ as then developed. Then he went to South Car olina, opening a store iu the Barnwell District, about 90 miles back of Charleston. He soon became disgusted with the “reconstructed” aud grew to sympathize with aud be recogniz ed by the Ireed people. Last spring he leased a plantation, stocked it, and hired sufficient of the best bands iu the district to run it. This fact, the wages he paid, aud the work be ob tained, infuriated the planters, and from the the first week of his occupancy a terrible sys tem of persecution commenced. Davis is not of the stuti that lives quietly under such treat ment, so be retaliates. When bis fences were set fire his neighbors for miles around were sure to Ire seen blazing ere night fell. When his stock was run off, the neighbor's somehow got astray also. When he was tired at, as was ofteu the case in riding through the woods, some one else known to be connected with such actions was sure to soon hear a bullet whistliug near him. Of course this sort of thing could uotbe long carried on. Davis con cluded to leave temporarily and to that end made an arraugemi nt with a partner he had to run the plantation. After this was done, be concluded that his associate was treacherous, aud with the aid of a Union Dimly Davis made a cabin on an Island iu a swamp aud liv ed there for nearly two months, watching his plantation and keeping in communication with his hands. His fears were realized, the £artner was preparing to sell him out, when •avis again made bis appearance and took charge. After this the notorious outlaws known as “Regulators” were brought from the vicinity of Edgefield. They were set on his track. Davis finding that he would be killed, sold his lease, growing crop and stock for two thousand dollars, taking a note payable in Oc tober last, and made his way out of the State. Iu October he went back with a couple of friends to collect the amount. He tried to keep his presence a secret, but was betrayed.— The Regulators were again set upon him, and this time he was nearly caught, being shot at and then regularly hunted by bloodhounds.— He had agai n to leave aud without the money due him. The especial animosity displayed against him was owing not only to his obstinate resistance ot them, hut because be exposed to the military authorities their plunder of the freed people. Among other things Davis projected a sub division of his plantation among the hands, leaving tracts of 20 and 40 acres to them. On this ho was actually charged before the mili tary authority with inciting insurrection. Since, he has been indicted for this in the Courts, and is now liable to process. There is no doubt of the substantial truth of Mr. Davis’ story, at it is confirmed in many particulars by official papers. RE-EBTABLI3HMBNT OF SLAVERY. Gob. St ilt'd k introduced a resolution relat ing to the sale iuto slavery of freed people un der pretence of crime. The particular case on which the resolution was based, is that of a man now advertised to be sold at the Court House of Frederick County. The introduc tion of this brought out a little speech from Mr. Stevens who recited the case of seven persons sold for a term of years in Florida, and declar ed that a system of actual slavery was growing up under the permitting of “servitude lor the punishment of crime?’ A number of cases were hrjught out, during the brief debate. Mr Stevens’ characterization ot Maryland was of the bitterest and most pungent style. His de nunciation is verified by the statements ot Gen. Howard in liis report just given to the public. The able head of the ireedwen’s bureau thus recounts some ol the Maryland evasions of emancipation. “The legal disabilities offreedmeu in that part of Maryland embraced in this district are still practically great. Apprenticeship—There are many complaints ot abuses under the apprenticeship law. Col ored children have generally been bound with out the consent ot their parents. A report from the Bureau agent regarding Calvert and Anne Arundel counties says that within a few days alter the emancipation constitution went into effect, it was the practice to take the chil dren on a farm before the orphans’ court and have them apprenticed to the former own er. Instances are mentioned where the chil dren were hired out, the former owner receiv ing the wages. In auother case the children after being brought into court on habeas corpus and delivered to their parents, were hired out by the parents, thus clearly ahowiug that they were not likelv to become a coun ty charge; but they were afterwards repleviucd l>> the master, thus diverting their earnings from their parents to him. The re port turther estimates that there are six hun dred cases of unjust apprenticing in Calvert county, and almost as many more ill Anne Arundel, and the same practice has prevailed to some extent iu other counties. The agents of this bureau have given atten tention to this subject, and some apprentices have been released by habeas corpus. But each case of uulawtul apprenticeship must be brought separately before the court, uo decis ion haying yet been made, or State larv enact ed, which operates generally tor the release of parties uujustly and illegally apprenticed.— No children are kuowu to have been thus ap prenticed since the euactment of the civil rights law.” There is little doubt that some stringent leg islation will be presented which will reach the cases at issue. Mr. Stevens thinks that a bill for the establishment of a republican govern ment in Maryland should be ottered. ANOTHER ILLUSTRATION OF “MY POLICY.” The President has caused the issuing to sev eral of the unrepresented States of scrip for the Lind, donated by Congress for the establish ment of Agricultural Colleges. Last session the law was amended so as to give three years more in which to accept said lands. Mr. John son has acted in this, as in other things, as if iie alone was the power to decide upon the full restoration of the States in rebellion. There has already been issued and delivered scrip for 270,000 acres to North Carolina, anil this scrip is already^ in the market. Scrip has been is sued and is now ready for delivery to Virginia, Mississippi ami Georgia. The Land Office is preparing the scrip for others of these unrepre sented States. The temper of the House was well illustrat ed when Mr. Julian, Chairman of the Commit tee on Public Lands, introduced a Joint Reso lution forbidding the issuiug or recognition of this scrip, A suspension of the rules was call ed for and promptly passed. The resolution was theu adopted. THE GRAND INQUEST CALLED FOR. Gen. Ashley of Ohio offered, as the telegraph will inform you, a resolution looking toimpeSch ment. That resolution was framed in just the manner in which it appears by the advice of Mr. Stevens, Gov. Boutwell, Shellaharger, Kcl ley, ami other leading radicals. The resolu tion was introduced, a motion to suspend the rules will passed, and the motion adopted.— (leu. Ashley will her of course Chairman of the Committee ofseveu to be appointed. UKNKBAL ITEMS. General Uutler lias returned to Massachu setts. The distinguished radical has announc ed himself a candidate tor the Presideucy-iu An effort has been made, unsuccessmlly 1 believe, to purchase the Republican here, in his interest. A new evening Journal is to he started here. It is to be radical in politics, hut devoted espe cially to the interests of the District. The colored people are already actively mov ing in the work of political organization. They iutend U> make a vigorous light for the control with their white couferrees, of the city govern ments here. It is not certain yet that they have force enough to accomplish their redemption. Mr. Lynch is about to offer resolutions that it is the duty of Congress to immediately es tablish republican governments within the un represented States, which he will press to a di rect vote. There is little doubt of their pas sage. Spectatok. Till'. illAKKm. T'BLEU ft APRIL! REPORTS. Fiuanciul.
