JcOen«B Maria. humors from Washington are rife that the man whose name is placed above this article, will, within a reasonably short time, be dis charged from custody upou his own recogniz ance to answer the charges that may be brought against him. It is but a few days since Mr. Wilson, of Mass., presented in the Senate a preamble reciting the capture Ac., ol Mr. Davis, followed by a concurrent resolu tion to the effect that “longer confinement of the said Jeff. Davis without a trial or assign ment of a specified time for trial, is not in ac cordance with the demands of justice, the spirit of the laws and the requirments of the Constitution, and that common justice, sound public policy and national honor unite in recommending that said Jeff. Davis be brought to a speedy and public trial, or that he be released from confinement on bail on his own recognizance.” Perhaps some of the readers of the Press may think Mr. Wilson very wrong in submit ting such a resolution, hut at the risk of being thought unsound on this matter we feel oblig ed to differ from them, and to think the ac tion ot the Mass. Senator creditable alike to his head, his heart and his statesmanship.— The 6th article of the amendments to the Constitution of the United States provides, that, “ip all criminal prosecutions, ed shall eojoy the right to a speedy and pub lic trial, by an impartial jury of tie State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed.” Nearly two years have elapsed since Mr. Davis was arrested and placed In safe custody at Fortress Monroe. During all this time the country has been, practically, at peace; at least, rebellion was disarmed before his incar ceration. Charged with the double crime of treason and complicity in the assassin ati™ 0f President Lincoln, he was a firing subject for trial before a civil court for the former, or a military court for the latter offense. But nearly two years have passed and he is appar ently no nearer a trial than at first. That he was complicated in the assassination is very doubtful, and probably if brought to trial on that charge no proof would be found that would convict him before any court compe tent to try him. On the charge of treason who believes that in any Southern State, or any Northern State even, twelve men can be selected, as jurors are usually selected, who would agree in a verdict of guilty? Every Democrat would hold back from such a verdict, and under the manipulations and arguments of such coun sel as the prisoner would have, who can doubt that many Republicans of undoubted loyalty, would also hesitate at such a verdict ? We have heard intelligent Republicans argue that, while no doubt could exist as to tbe treason ol the rebels before the U, S. govern ment treated and thus practically recognized them as belligerents, after that recognition they ceased to be traitors and became simply public enemies, to be treated in accordance with the rules of civilized warfare and the law of nations. Of course we pretend to no legal knowledge on this question, and only state the argument to show the reasons we have lor thinking that even Republicans might de mur at a verdict of guilty under an indict ment for treason. At any rate, we do not be lieve, nor do we believe any body else believes, that Davis ever will be or ever can be convicted by a jury, if brought to trial. The whole thing would prove to be a solemn farce, like the trial of Burr, and many other trials known to history. At the time Jeff. Davis was arrested the general feeling of the loyal part of the country wrs in favor of a speedy trial, a prompt con viction, and a righteous execution of the ex treme penalty for treason. So much seemed necessary to vindicate the majesty of the law and to render treason odious. It seemed fitting that a gigantic treason should be pun ished in its executive head, inasmuch as the traitors were too numerous to punish each one, or even a large portion of the leaders — But this whole thing strikes the popular mind differently at the present time. All other ar rested persons have been released. The majesty of the law has been vindicated by the acts of the law-making power. Justice has been and is doing a nobler work than that of shedding blood. Worse men than Davis have been let off by scores. He, alone, a broken spirited, feeble old man, remains tat the fast clutches of this all-powerful government, while bis confreres, and equals ir not superi ors in treason, are pardoned and promoted I To our mind, to still continue him in prison, under a'l the circumstances, looks amazingly unworthy the power cf the government It narrows down to a personal thing. It looks too much like things we have read of in con nection with the Tower in London and the Bastile in Paris. Our government cannot af ford to stain its record by a continuance of this thing. It can afford to say to Davis, as Uncle Toby said to the fly—“Go, poor devil, get thee gone; why should I hurt thee ? This world surely is wide enough to hold both thee and me.” We say the government can afford to say this, because Davis can’t hurt it; his power is gone and the power of a thousand like him. It can afford to show that it is no more afraid of him at large than in custody in Mississippi than in Fortress Monroe—ou his travels than confined in his St Helena.— We shall, therefore, not regret to seethe poor, miserable old rebel treated like his fellow reb els—released on his own recognizance, for we feel quite sure that, as the giving up of Mason and Slidell reduced a couple of quite formida ble lions to a brace of very small puppies, so the release of Davis will take from him tbe crown of martyrdom which thousands are trying to make appear upon his head, and place thereon instead only the poor hadge of the leader of a “lost cause”—the used-up and no longer feared representative of a collapsed rebellion. For these views we ask no one to feel re sponsible ; we ask no one to endorse them, or, because they appear in this paper to feel in the slightest degree compromised by them.— They are simply oar own—the expression of the feelings of our own individual heart. But one thing is sure; if Davis is to be tried at all it should be done soon. The Con stitution is violated by delay, and the reputa tion of the government is tarnished by such procrastination. If he is not to be tried, then release him, as Mr. Wilson proposes. Bohemian*. The San Francisco Californian is responsi ble for the following, which it credits to an in sane contributor: A very young friend of mine, just gradu ated from a country school, who is now in the city negotiating an engagement as editor, desired me toinlormhim how the word“Bohe mian” came to be applied to the better clusx of literary men. I promised to investigate the subject, and communicate the result of my researches to your invaluable paper. I find that the facts are these : In the seventeenth centDry the wits and authors of London used to meet on stated evenings at a popular res taurant known as Will’s Coffee House. They were pious and sober men, and on these social occasions indulged in tea, which one of them has celebrated as “the cup that cheers but not inebriates,” and another in some Anacreontic verses as “the poet's friend'' Their favorite brand was Bohea, and this cir cumstance gave rise to a witicism of Addi sen's who one evening, on the company or dering a fourth cup all around, remarked that “they were all Bohemians.” At first the par ty couldn't see it, and sat silent and gloomy until Mr. Addison, who had acquired some knowledge of geography when a boy, ex plained; whereupon Mr. Dryden graciously remarked that “it was a very pleasant jest,” and the company laughed heartily. Since then writers of decided genius have been known as ‘‘Bohemians.”_ —The editor of the Savannah (Ga.) Republi can dates his leaden from the “editorial room, Chatham County Jail.” He was sentenced, for a libel upon one Cohem, to a fine of eight hundred dollars and one hour’s imprisonment ia the county jail. Apparently he is imitating the plucky example of Mr. Pickwick, and de lines to “pay the costs.” Iriah laWlliM., n,“U.t °n* En8lkhman ever 8at on the throne ?v m * Vl,‘ En8',slirnau,Pope Adrian IV., in the year ll.ffi, issued a bull grantli.e to the English King Henry I(.,c„mp^au thority over Ireland. The subjugation of the island was completed, with but little difficulty in 1171. Among the adventurers who took part in the conquest, if conquest it can be called, were two kuights from South Wales, Kobeit Eitz Stephens and Maurice Fitz Uer ald, whose descendants have been plotting almost ever siuce to undo the work their an cestors accomplished so easily. Among the native princes, Roderick O'Connor, King of Connaught, was the most considerable, and next to him the kings of Munster, Leinster and Ulster. These four kingdoms liecame and remain provinces of the British Empire. An English seneschal or governor was appoint ed ; the native princes were lelt in |>ossession of the greater part of their ancient terri'o ries; such lands as were taken from them were bestowed upon the followers of the new Sovereign; and so the annexation of Ireland was complete. *• The papal authority served to reconcile the Irish to the revolution which had thus taken place. The authority of England was hardly .more than nominal. Pope Adrian had re quired the homage of the Irish chieftains to he paid to their royal ueighbor, and why not comply ? For seven huudred years the Irish had been a Christian people. The labors of at. Patrick, the piety and learning of his suc cessors, were famous not only in Ireland but ill all Europe. Then as now, the Irish peo ple were proud of their Church and devotedly loyal to it. When in 1534, Ilenry VIII. quar relled with the scrupulous Pone who refused to sanction bis first divorce, when the British Parliament in the same year declared the king “the only supreme head in earth of the Church of England,” that church ceased to be Catholic. In 1538 a papal bull publicly de livered over Henry’s soul to the devil and his dominions to the iirst invader. The disaffec tion of the Catholic Irish began then, and from year to year has only grown more pro found. Tbe first considerable rebellion broke out in 1598, when Hugh O’Neale, Earl of Tyrone, de feated tbe English at Ulackwater. The mal content Irish were then acting in concert with the Spanish, but when in 1802 it became clear that the Spaniards would accomplish nothing against England, Tyrone surrender ed his file and fortunes unconditionally to Queen Elizabeth. The terrible rebellion of 1041 was led by another -Tyrone, Sir Plielhii O’Nealc. It is variously estimated that from 40,000 to 200,000 English colonists, of both sexes and all agc3 and conditions, perished by the sword, by hunger and cold, with circum stances of inhuman barbarity. Charles i. and bis Parliament were at odds, and the rebels had their own way with but little op position, till 1049, when Parliament effected a permament settlement by beheading the king. Then came Cromwell and chastised Ireland with a rod of iron. The Irish emigration began at this epoch; 40,000 fighting men went into voluntary exile, taking service in ihe armies of Europe, wherever there was a prospect of meeting the English. In 1090 the Irish were Jacobites, and King James, suppor ted by his French allies, remained master of Ireland tor more than a year and a hall alter bis flight from Englaud. The famous battle of the Boyne in 1090, decided bis late. The liap parees were driven imo their holes the next year, and Ireland was once more pacified. The independence of the United States was recognized by England in 1782. The French revolution broke out in 1789, and war was de clared between Fiance and England in 1793. The Irish rebellion of 1798 was the natural result of these great revolutions and of the opportunity all'oided by a foreign war. The society of United Irishmen was tunned by YVolfc Tone in 1791. The plan of an insur rection took form gradually. One of the principal leaders was Lord Edward Fitzger ald, a brother of the Duke of Leinster; Ar thur O’Connor and Thomas Emmet were also active in the business. All these men were arrested, however, in 1798, and though the rising took place it was without order or dis tinct purpose, blazing up here and there but easily trampled out. In 1SU0, the union of England and Ireland was decreed by au act abolishing the Irish Parliament and admitting 100 Irish members so the English House of Commons and 32 peers to the House of Lords. In 1803 Robert Emmett made his unfortu nate attempt to stir up a revolt against the Union. In 1824 Daniel O’Counell begun to agitate lor the admission of Catholics to Par liament. The bill passed five years later, aud O’Connell next demanded a repeal of the Union. The agitation on this topic waxed in intensity, till in 1843 O’Connell was arrest edand found guilty of conspiracy and sedition. The judgment of the court was afterwards re versed by the House of Lords, but O’Connell died a few years later. Smith O’Brien's re bellion in the famine year, 1848, the natural outgrowth of the violent agitation of the twenty years preceding. John Mitchell and D’Arcy McGee were among O’Brien’s sup porters m this affair. The Fenian rebellion closes the list for the present. It is plain from the preceding ac count that ever since the rule of England be gan to be felt, the Irish have been ready, at anybody's signal, to rise in revolt. They have failed again and again, but failure does not check the ardor of their desire for independence. Those who look upon the Fenian movement as a gigantic “swindle'’ are mistaken, so far as the great majority of its participants are con cerned. The men who were in Smith O’Bri en’s plans in 1848 are the men who iiave or ganized tliis new movement. The name is taken from the ancient title oi the Irish mili tia, Fianna JCrinn, a name long since extinct since the body itself was broken up in the third century of our era. The Feniau scheme rested upon three assumptions: 1. That the Irishmen in the English army would revolt.— 2. That England could not laud in Ireland within three months more than 50,000 troops. 3. That 75,000 Fenians could be put in tbe field at once, with a reserve of 200,000 more. In the first and third of these particulars the scheme has broken down, and the second is therefore of no account. It is curious to no tice how the old names reappear. Timothy Connell has been arrested. J. J. O’Connor was the Kerry leader. James Stephens may be a descendant of Robert Fitz Stephens him self. Who knows? Gfwral Blair at Harlfard. Frank P. Blair, tharccently rejected appointee to the Austrian mission, was invited the other night 1o address the copperheads of Hartford, but he was hooted from the stage. The audience refused to hoar hint.—[Portland Press. Gen. Blair was too gallant a soldier during the war to receive respectful treatment now from the radicals who oilier from him iu opin ion. Hence the above fabrication. Gelt. Blair was invited to address the Democracy of Hart fort on Monday evening last and did .-o. Allyn Hall was packed with voters, says the Times, to listen to him, and he spoke ably lor an hour and a quarter. U was a great meeting. Gen. Wm. B. Franklin was one of the Vice Prcsi denta.—[Arjus. We arc unwilling to believe our contempora ry intended to charge the Press with “fabricat ing a falsehood," and yet such is the purport of his language. He must have seen essentially the same statement in bis Boston exchanges, and known that they were our authority for the paragraph. Nor do we think our neighbor will stand by the implied allegation that the disrespectful treatment exhibited towards the “gallant soldier" at Hartford, was the work of “radical^who differ from him in opinion." The Hartford Press contains a long account ol what it styles “the Show at Allyn Hall,” from which wc learn that Oou. Blair was not “hooted from the stage,” but, though he talked on for an hsur and forty minutes, he was otten hooted, hissed, interrogated, told to “dry up,” &c. &c., and by those of his own party, and the chairman had to come to his relief and be seech the audience to “be so patient as to hear our gallant friend,” saying, “he does not deal in declamation, he deals only in argument.” We copy from the account in the Press: We question whether any other speaker in the State has succeeded so completely in cre ating a sensation, as did Frank P. Blair in Allyn Hall last evensug. Whether Mr. Blair spent a portion of the day iu huuting for the lost “Whiskey bill" of the Times, or whether he accepted too freely of the generous hospital ity of some of his democratic friends, or wheth er the water, of which he imbibed so tree I v while .peaking, affected hj. hram.the audience could not satisfactorily determine, hut ,t was certain that some disturbing element had en tered his composition. He had nut gone far when it was noticed Unit his repetitious were frequent, bis sentence) nth rly pointless and involved, and his pro nunciation of sucli tvords as “coushtooshnul’' quite peculiar. After ubout half an hour hi; audience began to grow impatient at his dull, tedious and meaningless repetitious, and to shuffle about as though anxious for a change. About three-quarters of an hour from the time oonon,meed, be was interrupted by a noisy, f’,,y f, *“* just in front of him, and a dispute ' >'ou re another"style followed, until the cbeerin ***i 9nf***d, *■*>« audience, meantime, auUlo:illiu{< to lUair to nit and soon th«,y U^*' Elair, however, weufc on, cheer* i>;_cjJ.,ne another Htorm of iuiiiul«‘<i that he would not dettlin .ie ‘“gi au,1‘c;nce wished to hear Mr. fetiche ^ op ; !% his dreary arguinentatiou 1 ° Soon the audience renewed their efforts for a relief from Blair, and with loud cries of sit down, go od, go on forever,” with scraping of feet and hisses were heard. Blair, undaunt ed, waited till cries had ceased, and’ thru be gan again his argument on negro loyally, and negro suffrage. The seedy patriot in front of him, roused ouce more at this, remarked in an energetic manner ‘'damn the uagnr—let us hear something else.” Hero was another chance for argument, which Blair would not pass by, and another discussion ensued be tween llie two philanthropists nil Hie expedi ency of talking about “the uagur.” Having settled this matter, the persistent talker re turned once more to tile discussion of “our eoustooshual rights.” This was too much for the audience. They aaised such a hubbub thateven Blair's obscured perceptions could not mistake its purport, and so after ail hour and forty minutes of stupid, meaningless, in sipid twaddle, this precious specimen of West ern Juliusonism, loftily waved an adieu, and ungracefully subsided, while the audience gave a sigh of relief, followed by one outburst of genuine applause. And tliis was the end of Blair. Iihs purpose we have hail iu view in giving the above extracts, is not to show up the un pleasant and unfortunate condition in which a public speaker appeared before an audience, or to convey the impression that because it was a Democratic meeting such an exhibition was iu keeping or to lie expected, or «»ven to vindicate the substantial truth of the para graph to which the Aryua has taken excep tions. None of these considerations have prompted this article, but it seemed a fitting opportunity to say a word upon another point, oi equal importance to Democrats and Re publicans. Gen. Blair undoubtedly had been betrayed by a weakness with which he is said to be afflicted, into an indulgence beiond his strength, which served to bewilder his mind and unfit him for the work he had undertaken. This is no new thing with men in high posi tion. Such misfortunes do not befall our Democratic trieudB alone. We think Repub licans have been chagrined in the same way. Probably it would not be necessary to go out of this city or further back than our last cam paign to find at least a partial parallel for the case of Gen. Blair, so far as the condition of his brain was concerned, ami yet we are not disposed to hurl vindictive thunderbolts at either of the gentlemen because, in an un guarded hour, they yielded to a too common temptation, and thus alb>wed themselves to take on a temporary condition less apparent to themselves than to those who saw and heard them. It Gen. Blair thought enough of the Demo crats of Connecticut ami their cause to make the journey from 81. Louis to address them, the Hartford committee should have had suf ficient regard tor him and his reputation to liohi him hack from public speaking when he was not in condition to do so. So much was due to him, aud though a delicate office to per form his true friends should have faithfully performed it, and in his clear-headed moments Ue would thauk them for so doing. It is au in sult to au audience knowingly to introduce to them, as a public speaker, au incompetent per son, and it is a great wrong and unkind ness to the speaker to be thus introduced when he has, by over indulgence, unfitted himself for such a labor aud remains—as most men do under such circumstances— totally unconscious of his true condition. A stranger— a popular stump orator—if not bound to absolute total abstinence, and espec ially if be has strong social feelings, is almost unavoidably throwu iu the way of a great many invitations to indulge his appetite over a social glass, and men w ho drink but seldom will ask aud expect him to drink with them.— The result is, often, that, while if left to liiimclf he would remain perfectly soltcr aud clear headed, under the influences which surround him he drinks more than he cau War, and be fore he is aware of it other persons will discov er the cloud upou bis mind, aud the embarrass incut in his speech. The friends who have, iu mistaken kindness, beeu instrumental in bringing him into such a condition, should then of all time9, show their real friendship by keepin" him from a public exposure which may cost hiui days and months of bitter regret. This should have been done by Gen. Blair,— if the report from the Hartford paper does no bijusiice to bis condition and appearance,^-and this should have beeu done iu other cases, some of which have beeu as humiliating to Re publicans as the liar ford exhibition could pos sibly have beeu to Democrats.

The theory of Professor Darwin that all ani mal life has its origin in the primary cell, and that its variety only presents the diifeient stages of development, from the lowest orders to the most perlcct creation,man, lias Wen ap parently sustained by a startling example in this city which will he likely to engage in a high degree the attention of the scientific. During last fall, Mr. Charles Motzer, a tier man citizen residing on Bay street, put up a large quantity of his favorite article of diet known as saner kraut, in the preparation of which he tested the etlicaey of a receipt sug gested to him by a friend. The experiment 5roved a failure, as the introduction of some escriptiou ol alkali had the effect of reducing the cabbage into a mash and causing a strong fermentation, rendering the commodity entire ly unfit tor use as an article ofdiet. The mix ture was left standing in the cellar undisturb ed until Thursday last, when acuriouscircum- * stance led to an examination of the tubs in which it was deposited, resulting in a most wonderful discovery. On the day mentioned a cat emerged from the cellar into Mr. Motzer’*’ kitchen, having in custody a large reptile of the lizanl species, which wriggled viult ally and seemed extremely tenacious of life. Mr. Motzer at once proceeded to the cellar ami found some dozen or more ol tlio same descrip tion of r< utiles, which were exceedingly lively and sought to secrete themselves under hoards, etc., on the approach of a light. While prospecting about for the source of these strange creatures, the tubs in winch tlio sour kraut had Wen deposited were examined and presented a sight truly startling. The subitauce had liceu transformed into a mass of life and animation, and the curious reptiles were observed in every stage of development. The smallest specimens were about two inches in lenglh, and seemed to be acquiring the least degree of animation. Of these, the bodies were quite transparent, with a slight yellowish tinge, yml about the consistency of jellv. Specimens in a more advanced stage assumed a pink hue, wieb bodies more opaque. The fully developed reptiles measured from six to eight, and even ten inches in length, with bod ies hard anil tb-shy, of a brilliant crimson col or. Tile back deepens into a black line from the head to the tip of the tail, while tlio belly is of a delicate pink merging into white. Tlio form of the reptile is said {p W very similar to the chamelon,having lbnr legs, with indica tions of claws, and its movements are veyr lively. The eyes are sharp and serpent-like, and surrounded with a yellowish ling, merg ing into black. Several specimens have Wen secured by a medical geuilenian and are pre served in spirits. A microscopic examina tion shows a fine coating of scales, and serried formation ol the hack and tail. Mr. Motzer slill allows the tubs to remain undisturbed, and is watching the progress of the curious freak of nature, it Wing evident that the entire stock of the dainty commodity, which was intended to supply his table through the winter, will ul timately take to itself legs, it not ivings, and travel off on its own account, in which action the kingdom of reptalia is augmented by an other very interesting species, it the climate of Canada will permit its propagation. This re markable case presents a grave warning to consumers of saner kraut, to take great care that its preparation is not congenial to the generation of animal lile, else a malady more tearftil than the trivhina spiralis may lie en gendered.— Hnmilt>m (C.
