Washington, May 25.—Several weeks since Bsn Butler bought a largo tract of land just outside tho northern limits of the city. Tho tract consisted of 300 acres, tho price paid being about SI,OOO per acre. Land in that vicinity be ing In no great demand, It was generally conald sred that Butler had made n bad investment. It now transpires that the Commission appointed br Congress to select a site for tho now Presi dential mansion have determined to recommend the purchase of tho identical tract.

Washington, May 26.—1t is Ascertained, from -those having- the best means of Information, ‘that, the action of the Oivil-Sorvico Advisory ' Board, at tho present session, will encourage the growth, and thus render more efficient the con templated reform. They believe, after their con sultation with tho President and members of the 'Cabinet on Saturday, that tho Administration is determined, to give tho support which is needed. It was generally agreed that some modifications aro demanded as tho re sults of experience, but while the changes In details will bo slight, the main features and scope of the system will not only remain unim paired, but be invigorated. Tho Board will in a few days complete its work of revision, when tho changoswillbemadopuhlio. Assurance is given that they will contain nothing from which the true friends of reform will dissent, while it ' Is believed the greatest need is a bettor in structed and more discriminating public opinion upon the snbj cot.

An Impartial and Competent Tribunal De< mantled. To the Editor of The Chicago 3Vf6«n« Sib ; There is not an intelligent man in this city who is not interested in the solution of this Court-House question* It la a matter of im mense importance, as every one of honest pur pose desires that this building shall bo an archi tectural model, to instruct and elevate our people. Standing in the heart of a peculiar and won* dorfol city, it should be an edifice free, bo far as it can bo made, from blunders and stupidities marring its beauty. Are we to put millions of dollars into such a building? Is the old Court-House disgrace to •be repeated ? From present indications it looks as If such might be the case. lam not a judge, and do not assume the rank of critic, but write simply as a citizen, deeply interested in every thing calculated to promote the welfare and beauty of this city. Upon one point the public are agreed: the 1 selection must bo a fair one. The present Com mittee is too largo, too little acquainted with the rules and principles of the highest architecture, to come to any conclusion tuat will bo satis factory to the tax-payors and the people. This fact maybe doomed as already estab lished. The judgment, and knowledge, and taste of the various members of the Committee are so discordant that nothing liko unity can over bo reached. This voting on plans does not decide anything. The opinion of one groat disinterest ed architect is worth more than that of a thou sand'merchants, and lawyers, and doctors, on a complicated and difficult question of art. Every man of sense will admit this. 1 entertain high respect for the present Com mittee, and would not write or say a disrespect ful word of them, But lam thoroughly con vinced that they are incompetent to decide which of the forty-nine plans submitted to them is the best one for the now Court-House. Nor, should they vote for forty years, is it likely that t’hey would arrive at a unanimous verdict. And, even should they finally be able to decide upon one plan, It is highly improbable that it would bo the best plan. Architects of genius and experience, who de termine the real value, and settle, in the end, Iho reputation of all great works of art, might pronounce thoirverdict that our boasted Court- House was one of the most imperfect and ex pensive follies of tbo ago. Wo cannot afford to run so gigantic a risk. It is said by some that architects arc not good critics. On the other hand, it may bo affirmed with certainty that no one can ho a true art-critic who is ignorant of the rules, principles, and lima of art. Can a man who can scarcely distinguish ono musical note from another be transformed Into a musical critic, by on election to tho office of Al derman or Board of Public Works ? Can men who know not ouo star from another determine the mysteries of astronomical science ? Such Illustrations can he carried to any extent, and they prove irresistibly that a body of men unac quainted with architecture or criticism arc abso lutely inadequate to settle this Court-House dif ficulty without recourse to mon who have made the subject a study, and who are thoroughly familiar with its principles and details. For the public health, wo employ physicians. For the decision of legal questions, a competent lawyer is employed. But, for the building of an edifice that will cost an immense sum, and which will stand for centuries, a monument of our taste or folly, wo deem it sufficient to take tlio decision of mon of inexperience, and allow the greatest number of iguoraut votes to settle tho question. It seems strange that argument should bo re quired in a case whore common souse so clearly points out tho way. , , ~ Wo must have a “ change of venue.” Justice to tho architects, to tho tax-payors, and the peo ple, requires that everything connected with this Court-House business should bo as clear and present Committee may he, they are breathing an impure atmosphere,—a moral atmosphere filled with temptation andoorruption. A disinterested tribunal must bo sought for 5 It cannot bo found in this city. It is truedhat wo have Homo artists of talent. But nearly the same objections would apply to them as to the present Committee. Besides, it would be hard to call upon a jury of our own architects to judge their fellow-architects. In terest, envy, jealousy, might, and undoubtedly would, affoot their judgment. The forty-nine plans show clearly enough the laate and talent of our architects. We have reason to feel proud of them. What Is wanted Is a competent judge or judges to decide be tween their plans, and disinterestedly select from the entire number tho oue that has tho hlizhost merit. This nan only be dOUO by artlflU ttlio have no special Interests In iblo city, and who ore unacquainted with tho competing archi tects. . ' , In this way. wo shall surely arrive at a just conclusion.—just as tho United States and Eng land recently did, In a matter of far. grontor im portance, by referring tho questions in dispute to tho judgment of impartial powers. This is always the best policy, and tho only policy by which a clear and entirely disinterested verdict can bo obtained i and I am sure Hint not a stono will bo permitted to be laid, as the foundation for tho now Court-House, until tho public are satisfied that justice has boon done* Either refer tho question to three Lantern ar chitects, from different cities, or to tho Board of Trustees of tho American Institute of Arcnl* toots, in Now York City, or to somo other pro porly-qualitlod body of artists. Several of our most prominent citizens might bo allowed to co ojicraw, ns representatives of Chicago and Its P Lot such a comfblttoo, sinking all Individual preferences, consult some Eastern tribunal of architects, and lam certain the result would bo of such a character as would Helve the Court- House question, to the satisfaction of all. Yours truly, J. Esaias Warren. tub Billiard kino. flow Ho Spent 111* First Snbbalh lii Chicago—TUroo Matches Made w'Uli Xtosaungor. Mens. Uhassy, the great French bllllardlst, played a quiet game with Henry Rhinos at Fo ley’s Hall yesterday afternoon in tho presence of a small audience. Tho game was of tho tbroo-ball description, 800 points up, and was won by tho visitor by 78 points. Übassy’s play was not remarkable, but hie general stylo was sufficient to convince tlio spectators that ho is unquestionably tho greatest player of French billiards in tho world. Toward the close of tho game ho mndo a ran of 60, during which ho did but little nursing or rouad-tho-tablo play. His object appears to bo not to collect tho balls, but to havo them in favorable positions for plain, long shots. For a man who scarcely over handles a cue, Rhinos played well. His score and average wore very creditable. At tho con clusion of tho gome, übassy, Foley, and Laoou . mo, called on Bossungor, and succeeded in making throe splendid matches for $260 a side each. Tho first ono will bo played on Thursday even ing next, and will bo a game of 400 points French, Uoesungor receiving tho odds of a discount. Tho second game will occur on Mon day evening - next, when Übassy will play COO points to Bcssungor's 400. Tho third match will !>o contested on Thursday evening week, the number of points to bo 800, and Bcssungor’s odds a discount. The games will bo played in the Amphitheatre, if it can be secured, and tho audiences will undoubtedly bo tho largest that havo over attended a billiard match In this country. The contests aro sure to bo close, as Bossungor is nobody’s fool at tho French gamo. A groat many people loqk upon him os tho equal of oithor of the Dions when playing with throb balls. SUBURBAN. HYDE PARR. A regular mooting of tho Hyde Park Trustees was bold on Saturday aftomoon. Tho five bills of John McCaffrey, approved at lost mooting, bad to bo reconsidered, in order that warrants might bo ordered out of tbo proper accounts.

License as eewor-buildor was granted to An drew Wright. It was ordered that tho prico of. sewer-license bo fixed at $10; that they shall ex pire April 15 next, and bond bo required in tho sum of $5,000. The petition for a twelve-inch sower on Madison avonuo, from Fiftieth to Fifty-first street, received favorable report, with instructions to the Attorney to prepare an ordi nance, but woe then laid over, at the request of tho President, in order that a proper system may bo adopted, as to size, for all connections with sold sower. License was granted John Maag to keep a sa loon. Tho Committee mode favorable report for Fraatz & Krokor, at Holland Settlement, and Palmer «t Arnold, at Grand Crossing, but, objec tion being mode in tho interest of tlio remon strants,.both had to lie over. Tho petition for an additional policeman in the Second District mot with a recommendation to appoint Michael Kennedy, and was thou laid over one week. Ofay’s Addition to Cornell was approved. President Cady, Richard S. Thompson, and George M. Rogue woro appointed to audit tho Treasurer’s books and open tho accounts, ac cording to tho new regulations under village or ganization. SOUTH CHICAGO. It is announced by Col. Gaston that South Chicago harbor is nearly ready for a formal opening, worthy of tho groat work which has cost tho United States already $120,000. It was ordered that it bo inaugurated on tbo 7th of Juno by railway and steamer excursions, and Gilmore’s Rand. President Cody and his four assistants ore to make the arrangements. EVANSTON.

Tho new sower at this suburb, which extends from the west ridge to tho lake, has just boon completed, and is working finely. The removal of Calvary Cemetery is being agi tated, and tho Catholics and Protestants both are said to bo in favor of the idea. Tho Bishop has lately secured a largo tract of land on tho Wisconsin Division of tho Chicago <t North western Boad, and it la thought would make the ohaugo if the proper influences wore brought to boar. If this could bo offoctodit would opou for residence some of tho most desirable locations between. Evanston and Chicago. COAL-TROUBLES AT BRAIDWOOD. Brxidwood, WIU Co., 111,, May 23,1878. To the Editor of The Chicaoo Tribune: Bin: A question of considerable importance to the coal-consumora of Chicago is now being agitated at this place, a dispute having arisen between tho ooal-miuors hero and thoir employ ers, tho Chicago & Wilmington Coal Company. Braidwoodis situated fifty-four miles from Chi cago, on the Chicago, Alton «b Bt. Louis Bailroad. At this place is mined all tho coal known as Wilmington coal. Tho principal mine-owners hero are the Chicago, Wilmington & Vermilion Coal Company. They employ about 800 minors, who are paid $1.25 per ton. Tho employers have demanded, during tho past four years, that tne minors should sign a contract in which they promised to continue at work at tho price stated, for and during the year after the day of signing. This contract has heretofore been signed on or about the Ist day of May in oaoh year. Tho minors have signed it every year during the last four, but refuse to sign It this year. Hence thoro is a suspension of work at tho mines of tho 0., W. & V. Coal Com pany, as the Company will not allow the miners to go to work until they, sign tho contract fob tho coming year. Why, you may auk, do not tho minors sign end go to work? Tho reason la this i Tho minors have resolved to work only eight hours each day; and tho Company have demanded, hr their contract, that tho minora shall work ton hours. each day. Tho minors claim that, as they are paid only for what they produce, tlio Company ImvA no right to dictate to thorn how long thoy shall iako to produce it. Tho Company, on tho other hand, contend that, as the mlnoo aro tholr property, thoy havo tho right to say who thoy shall employ, and how long thoy shall work. . . The result of all this is. that wo havo a goOnly number of workmen idle In Braldwood, and coal-consumers may look for an advance in prices if this matter is not soon settled. I see a supply of coal Is being brought from tho Slroator mines, In LaSalle County, to make up for tho deficiency in tho Chicago market caused by tho falling off of iho Braldwood supply. Btreator coal is In ferior in quality when compared to Wilmington coni, but iho necessities of Chicago folks will compel thorn to pay tho samo price for it. . An Observed ATTEMPTED VILLAINY. A hold attempt to outrage an unsuspecting girl was frustrated by Officer Laughlin, yester day morning at 3 o’clock. About the hour named tho officer hoard a woman screaming. Thinking It something very unusual at that hour, ho proceeded to tho cor ner of Clinton and Monroe streets, from whooco tho cries seemed to come. There ho found a carriage standing in iho middle of Clinton street, and a woman who was inside seemed to bo struggling to got away from a man. Tho officer crept slowly up to the carriage from tho rear, and becoming satisfied that something was wrong, ho commanded the man to come out. At first ho refused, hut the officer resolutely told him that ho must obey. Tho follow camo out, and proved to bo a man nomod Charles free, a bar-tender at tho Pacific Varieties, on West Madison street. Ho was taken with tho girl to the Union Street Station. Tho latter told a pitiful story. She Bald that about midnight eho was returning un accompanied from a ball on tho North Side to her homo on West Washington street. She be came lost, and WQudorodJttDout unill she got to tho corner of Washington and Clinton streets. Hero she was accosted by Free, who asked her whore she was going. Not suspecting but that ho was a proper character, she Told him whore her homo was, and, when •ho offered to take her there in a closed carnage, she consented to go. She relates that thoy had not driven far when ho began to take improper liberties with her. She says ho was under the influence of liquor. Ho finally became brutal in his treatment, striking her in tho face with his fist because she stilt resisted his Improper ad vances. She cried for some time before she was hoard. Tho hackmau gave no hood to her cries, and was, doubtless, ready to assist tho brute who had hired him in accomplishing tho poor girl’s ruin. Yesterday afternoon Free was boiled out of priuou, and soon after the girl, who hrd boon detained as a witness, was lot out, also, some one having made a deposit of $25 for hor appearance iboforo "Justice {Scully this morning. It is believed, however, that tho deposit was made in the interest of the villain, and that the girl will bo prevented from appear ing against him. THEY KEPT THEIR PROMISE. All the lager-boor saloons on Clark street, north of Chicago avenue, woro wide open yester day, and did a flourishing business. They have never boon actually closed since tbo Sunday law wont into effect, but they woro conducted in an orderly manner, and gave no particular offense to any person. Yesterday, however, there was no attempt ot concealment. Boorwas dispensed before tho eyes of tho police force and tho rest of tho world, and tho saloons woro filled with jolly crowds. Thio seems to bo tho object of tbo organisation known as tho Saloon-Keepers* Union, and now that tho members thereof nave snapped their lingers in tho faces of the authori ties. perhaps Cadi Kauffman, of tho North Bide Follco Court, will vindicate tho law by fining them with a severe reprimand. .$3,106.28 “RISKS" VS. “THE VICTIMS.” To the Editor The Chicago Tribune ; Bin « In Tins Tuiuokb of yesterday it woe stated that the audiences at Hooloy’s on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, when my comedy “Risks” was presented for tho seventeenth and eighteenth time, wore not equal to those on “tho off nights’* when “Tbo Victims” wos given. This statmont is incorrect. “Risks’* drew more money than did “Tho Victims,” and during tho first two weeks of Its run tho receipts woro many hundreds of dollars larger than any other two consecutive weeks of tho present prosperous season. Yours very respectfully, Chicago, May 25,1879. Bartley Campbell. THE CITY IN BRIEF. Paine and Tinker, tho Eastern shots, loft for tholr homos lost evening,' wiser and poorer men. Richard Ur own. tho man who was crushed be tween two freight cars at tho Eighteenth street depot on Saturday, died yesterday afternoon at Ilia late residence, No. G32 South Union street. The Coroner will hold an inquest to-day. ■William Pinkerton, tho detective, arrived in tho city yesterday, after several months’ab sence iii Europe, whither he went on criminal business of importance. It was mainly duo to his skill that the Rank of England forgers woro arrested. There woro seven violators of tbo 11 o’clock ordinance arrested on the North Side last night. During tho day there was a general disoboyanco of the Sunday law, and in Cnpt. Gund’s district twenty-five saloon-keepers ore summoned to op pear next Saturday. A respectable Gorman named Edward Oloson almost ulod to death, from the nose, last night, at the Union Street Police Station. Ho was found by an offices in an almost lifeless condi tion, on Union street near Lake. Dr. Flemming, whoso office is at tho corner of Washington and Dosplainea streets, was called in, and after a time stopped tho flow of blood. Oloson, how over, was unable to go homo, and was kept in tho station during tho night. Yesterday tho saloon of Frank Sohwohen, under the Globe Theatre, was kept open during tho entire day. At 11 o’olook last night Officer Laughlin wont in to arrest Bchwchon. Ho seemed to labor under tbo mistaken supposition that tho penalty was the same whether ho of fended tho Sunday law or the U o’clock ordi nance, and at first resisted arrest. A orowd of men in the saloon gathered around the officer aud began to taunt and revile him for transcend ing, as they supposed, his authority. Rounds man Simmons, having anticipated some trouble there, arrived with three men soon after, and tho saloon-keeper and all his customers wore arrested. PERSONAL. Lleut.-Qov.

Father Do Smet, for the last half century one of the most prominent of Jesuit missionaries, died at a quarter past 2 o’clock yesterday morn ing, at tho Bt. Louis University, comer of Ninth and Groon streets. Not only were tho threads • of his life intimately lulerwovon with tho affairs of his church and society, but ho was closely connected with tho early history of this Stato and city. A brief sketch of the life of a man so remarkable will bo interesting to our readers, no matter what may bo thoir religious convictions. Father Do Bmlt was born in the year 1801, at Dandcrmondo, in Belgium. His parents were people of respectability among tbo bottrgeoise of the region, several of his relatives., having attained to tbo dignity of provincial Judges. His early years woro spout at homo, and at a preparatory Episcopal seminary at Mechlin, where bo studied tho hu manities. At school ho was noted as a good, although not a remarkable scholor, and as ono who entered Into all juvonitosports with extraor dinary zest and earnestness. While still a youth bo showed signs of great physical strength, which served him to good purpose in the severer experiences of bis mature years. His education was completed when bo was 20 years of ago. , , , About this time Father Norinokx, a mission ary, who bad labored principally in Kentucky, visited bis homo in Belgium. Mooting young Do Burnt, be induced him to return with him to America. They landed in Baltimore in October, 1821. Do Smot spent u year or two at White march University, in Maryland, perfecting him self in his work of spiritual preparation. In 1823' ho loft tho novitiate to come to Bb. Louis, which was at that early date situated in the midst of on almost pathless wilderness, and . bod a population not exceeding 8,000 or | 4,000 souls. The appliances of travel were then of a most primitive description. Tbo party, of which this young Jesuit was one, cross ed tho Allegheny Mountains with a train of two or throe huge wagons, tbo land-croft of tho period, bought a couple of flatboats at Pitts burgh, In which they descended tho Ohio as far as Suawuootown. Thoro they sold their boats, and took the usual overland route to St. Louis. Thoir arrival at this point was early in Juno. 1823, almost fifty years- ago. Father Do Smot continued his novitiate at Florissant, and while thoro made himself conspicuous by his manual energy in foiling trees and building log-houses, some of which monuments of his religious forco and zeal wore still standing not many years ago. It is said that ho could do more work in a day than any throe of hla comrades. In 1828 ho came to Bt. Louis, and assisted in founding tho College on Ninth and Washington avonuo, assisting with his own hands In quarrying rook for’ tbo foundation. Ho afterwards became a teacher in the school, and won tho love of all tho students by tho unremitting kindness and patience with which ho discharged tho duties of his office. In 1638 ho wont os a missionary to the Pottawatomics and Kickapoos, who wore liv ing near Council Bluffs. In 1841 ho was sent In tho same capacity to tho western slope of tho Rooky Mountains, among tho Fiatheads and tho Pondoriollos. a branch of tho samo tribe. Hero bo lived until five or six years ago, with tho ex ception of occasional visits to Europe, made for tho purposo of raising contributions to carry on tho missions. Once ho chartered a vessel, load ed it with tho gifts ho hod received, and return ed by way of Capo Horn to tho mouth of tho Columbia Rivor. Tho labors of Father Do Bmot among tho In dians wore attended with markodsuccoss. Ho never carried a weapon of any kind, novor at tempted violence, or offered resistance, and never Buffeted In any way from tho aggressive ness of tbo savages. His only moans or defense were love and gentleness. Ilis porsuoalve elo quence was once of groat benefit to tho Govern ment in dealing with a tribe that had shown signs of hostility. By invitation of tho authori ties, ho accompanied an expedition commanded by Gen. Harney, and, acting as an emissary, brought about a reconciliation, which became a permanent peace. It is alleged that none of the Indians with whom Father Do Bmot labored at any time over afterwards wore at wot with tho Government. Three, at least, of tho missions established by him ore still in existence in tho southern part of Oregon. Ho always claimed that his influence upon tho aoociginos was such as to ameliorate thoir manners, and redounded to thoir permanent good, when they woro not brought into contact with vicious whites. Although familiar with tho Indian tongues, ho was not himself tho author of any books printed in thoir language. Two In dians, however, educated under his supervi sion, turned their attention to that matter, and woro tho authors of several volumes for use among thoir fellows, tbo namos of which aro not known to tho writer. He had studied botany In hla youth, and porfeotod himsolf in tho science during his long residence in tho Rocky Moun tftlnai Tho College has had tho honor of being the permanent residence of Father DoSmot tor tho last six years.

When roturniug from ono of tboso voyages about a year aud a half ago, bo foil on shipboard, brooking several ribs, and suffering other serious physical injuries. Since that time bo has never boon in perfect health, and at dif ferent times within tho past four or live months death has seemed to bo imminent. A few days ago ho was taken with chills and lever, wtioh finished the fatal work begun bjvtho casualty on shipboard. Except for this accident, there seemed to be no reason why his lifo should not have boon prolonged another score of years, so groat was his natural vigor and so abundant his vitality. Not many months after his last return from Europe, Dr. Linton, who deceased himsolf soon afterward, told the friends of Father De Bmot that ho could not survive a year, and tho words proved prophetic.

ALMOST A TRAGEDY. Attempt to Kill Col. Johnston nt Fort I’ortcr, by Dr. John sf. Perkins. From the JlUJfalo Commercial, Hay 23. An affair took place at Fort Porter yesterday afternoon, tho effect of which has boon to create no Uttlo excitement and speculation. The re porters up to the present writing have boon unable to obtain fulf particulars, but such facts os could bo learned arc given below, Tho main features of tho affair are that Dr. John 8. Perkins attempted to kill, by shooting, Col. It. £. Johnston, commander of tho post. Dr. Porkini), a man about 80 years of ago, was, until somewhere about two months since, acting ns Hospital Steward at tho fort, and also, as wo understand, serving in the capacity of Assistant Burgeon, when tho city authorities determined to appoint Dis trict City Physicians, ho was named as ono of them, whereupon ho asked for and received his discharge from tho service. Slnco then lie has boon attending to his duties as District Physi cian, and practising bis profession in tho city. Between 4 and 6 o'clock yesterday afternoon, Dr. Perkins entered tho fort and proceeded to the quarters of Col. Johnston, whore that gentle man was seated alone. What transpired imme diately after tho two mot wo arc not informed; but tho Doctor handed tho Colonel a letter, asking him to peruse it. as it contained somthing of Interest io him (tho Colonel). WliUo tho latter was reading tho let ter, ho says, Dr. Perkins went behind him, drew a small revolver and flrod at him, but missed ; a second shot took offoot in the loft arm of the Colonel, near tho olbow. The officer then ran from his quarters out upon tho parade, pursued by his assailant, who fired throo more shots, one of which struck him in tho back, near the shoulder-blade. , , At this time Oapt. Tisdale —who hod beard tho firing from bis room, adjoining that of Col. Johnston—and Lieut. Armstrong appeared upon tho scene, when tho former presented a revolver at tho Doctor and compelled him to stop. It was found upon inspection that all the chambers in tho revolver of Dr. Perkins—a small weapon of Smith & Wesson’s make—hod been discharg ed, save ono, tho cortridgo in which missed fire. X)r. Perkins was convoyed to tho guard-house, whore ho was still confined this morning. Dr. Aldon, tho Surgeon of tho post, wns.ooDod to to dross tho wounds of Col. Johnston, which aro said not to ho serious. It is stated that tho lottor handed Opl. John ston by Dr. Perkins was an anonymous one, Riv ing tho lottor to understand that tho former hod made improper advances towards Ida wife, cto. Tboro wore other rumors in regard to tho affair, which it would not ho • proper to ■ publish at this time, or before an investigation is bad.. Tho re porters wore not allowed to see Dr. Perkins at tho. fort, and hence wo aro unable to give his version of tho matter. It was stated to our reporter this morning, by a member of tho police force, that in tho course of tho shooting Col, Johnston' hud ilrod two shots at Dr. Perkins. Col. Johnston was unablo to leave his quarters this morning, but sent for Deputy United States Marshal Tolas, and made a formal complaint. A warrant was procured, and Dr. Perkins will ho handed over to tho custody of tho Marshal, and taken before United States Commissioner Soroggs for ex amination this afternoon at 3 o'clock, on the charge of assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to kill. As the alleged offense was com mitted within grounds under tho exclusive juris diction of tho Government, tho case must of course como before tho United States Court. • LATER —A STATEMENT FROM DB. PERKINS, Since the above was written, wo have received a note from Dr. Perkins, written at tho fort guard-house this morning and handed ua by De tective Battel. After stating that ho wont to the fort for. tho purpose of upbraiding 001. John ston for having dishonored him,(Dr. P.) aa a hushaud, of winch ho claims to have tho most positive proof, Dr. Perkins says: “Tho moment that I made my errand known, bo attempted to draw bis plstoL Seeing that I likewise bad one, lie turned ana ran- After I had discharged my pistol, ho turned and flrod at mo, showing that his statement to the reporter of tho Uxprcss, that his pistol woa hanging in another room, is false.” There aro statements in tho note of Dr. Perkins, embodying serious charges against 001. Johnston, but those wo do not think is advisable to make public, at this time, at least. In justice to Col. Johnston it should bo stated that bo pronounces the accusation of improper intimacy with tho wife of Dr. Perkins utterly without foundation in truth. NEWS PARAGRAPHS. Tho Providence (B. I.)
