THE OTTUMWA COURIER. I.W.IOBRH, Editor. THURSDAY April 7, 18R4 The €«pp- rhfn4 Wmr. The Copperhead war in Illinois, seems to be over. Some of the reptiles Me under •rrest and Notaries are busy collecting evi dence to eoninci them. This cowardly attack on the soldiers W*M made on the fir*t day ©f Coirrt at Charleston. The Copperheads had concerted it before hand, and came numbering some 150. with arms concealed in wagons. The soldiers belonged to the 64th Illinois, and ware on their way to llattoon to be sworn in as Veteran*. A aoldier named Sallee put his hand, playfully on the shoulder of one of the Copperheads, named Wells, asking him if there were any Copperheads in town. Wells replied, yea, G—d d—m von, I am one. This was the *rjrnal for commencing. The Copperheads ran for their arms, and commenced firing at the soldier* who were scattered around.— Several were phot dead, including Maj. Vork a prominent Union man. Col. Mitchell w*s wounded. The soldiers rallied and with pistols and such arms as they could lay hands on, ad*d ht the loral citizen*, mad* so gallant a fight that the cowardly snakes in a short time, conrluded that the* had better take care of their carcasses, and skedaddled in all directions. Reinforce ments soon arrived, and parties were sent in pursuit, with the result labove stated— ibe capture of about 40, with the prospect ef the number beinc greatly increased.— The prisoners w'll be delivered to the civil authorities, and it is to be devoutly hoped will, on conviction of thU hellish attempt to inaugiu^f}(t,civil war in the North, be tang. ______ IATEST HEW*.

It is anticipated that this wiil be the great est Fair, in the extent and brilliancy of tbe exhibition, and in the amount of money that will be realized, that has ever been held on this Continent and what is the moi-e gratifying about the matter is the fact that it is all for the benefit of our sick and wounded patriot soldiers. The Chicago Pout a Democratic paper, publishes the following: MATTOOW, April 1. Most of the dispatches concerning the Charleston insurrection are grossly untrue. There was not the slightest provocation. Three days now spent in taking testimony, the'*how* PUn to murder all the soldiers in Charleston. The leaders were John H. O'Hair, Nelson Wells, John Fracer and others. About one hundred are implicated thirty-seven of whom are now nnder arrest The ringleaders escaped.

I desire, however, to explain an set of the recent Legislature whieh may bo a matter of considerable inquiry in many parts of the State. I refer to the purchase of the Cap itol building—that is, the building hereto fore used in this city as the Crpitol. Tn 1855, a enmnany waa oriranised in this city, known as the Capitol Association, the ohject of which was to ereet a building in this city which would be naed by the State, after the location of the Capitol her*, for the purposes of a Caqitol. This Aasoci ation borrowed from James Eads, of the School Fund, the amn of $40,000, giving, as security therefor, mortgages on some city lota, both vacant and itnnroved. The building was erected, and rented to the State at the nominal sum of $1.00 per an nual. Tn the crash of 1S57, the oroperty mortgaged to the Sta*e became almost worth less. The question presented to the Legis lature was purely a financial Wis a ques tion of dollars and cents. The settlement and compromise sernre to the State the Capitol building, over eight hundred acres of land in Warren county, and some eighty in Polk, besides various ot« in the city, the whole estimated at $40,000. Had the State declined the ad justment and »rooe«ded to foreclose and collect, it is doubtful whether one-half this amount could have bean realized, as the company is hopaleaaly insolvent, aa well in dividually as collectively. The nine hun dred acres secured to the State was not morteaged. and is given to the State aa an inducement to a compromise. And now. this perplexing question is settled, and re moved from the halls of legislation, and, in my opinion. State is the gainer, finan cially. know that future General Assem blies should thaok this one for disposing of the subject. One other act of the Legislature also wivh to refer to. It was charged that the recent General Assembly was unfriendly to country newspapers. I am willing to ad mit that, in the defeat of one or two bills, 'he House, at least, subjected itself to the charge of unfriendliness to the country press, yet. tn the passage ot one aot,« exon erated and redeemed itself. The price al lowed by law for publishing the delinqutnt v I,**, at preswnt only ten cents a de scription, and there is now no law govern ng the price for other'legal advertisements. The law just paaaed increases the pay to twenty cents s description, and fixes the price of legal advertising at one dollar for the first, and fifty cents for each subsequent insertion. The great failure of this General Assem bly was in not effecting a settlement, a final permanent settlement, of the title difficulties in the Des Moines Vallev. These troubles and doubts have retarded the advancement of this valley more than all the financial re vnlsionsand civil wars the country has ever seen. There is no valley in the great West which presents greater inducements to aet tlement than this one. and yet the title to half the land above the Raccoon Fork is in controversy, either between the Des Moines Navigation Company and the railroads, or between the railroads and the settlers and. consequently, thou^anda ol braad and beau tiful acrea remain vacant and unproductive. The session closed at 4 o'clock in the morning, Tuesday, 29th, aod the members are now, many of them, at their distant homes. The parting was exceedingly at fecting. Many of the members give free vent to their feelings in copious floods of tears, whilst others left their Halle singing the "Battle Cry of Freedom." Every harsh word had been forgotten, and Heaven's i Thirty-Eighth Congrees. •otTsa. Washington, April a.—At tho expiration of the morning hour, the House went Wholi .nd" wimM '"he «iz«1 h»» consideration of the National Bank bill. Pendleton called up his motion to recon sider the vote by which the House disa ereed to t'-ie Senate's amendr.tent to the Montana Territory bill, and asking a Com mittee of Conference. lie said the Senate's amendment, striking out the word "white" was to give negroes the right to vote in the Territory. It was an amendment different from what had heretofore been incorporated in such bills, since the Republican party came into power. This party had ignored their precedents. His object was to give gentlemen an opportunity to determine Beaman, of Michigan, wwsM not argne the question, whether it was expedient that negroes should vote er not, but as the mat ter stood, tbe House has already refused to consant to the Senate's amendment, and ap poited a Committee of Conference on the subject. He moved to lay Mr. Pendletoa's motion to reconsider on the table. The motioa of Beams* waa agreed yeas 3 nays 4$. The House then resumed consideration of the Raritan Jfc Delaware Railroad bill. Sweat, from Maine, spoke against tbe bill, believing it had no warrant in the Constit ution er laws of the country. Harper, of Massachusetts, offered an amendment to the sixty-fourth tbe National Bank bill, providing that any bank or banking association now organized in pursuance of thelawa of any State, der articles of which prohibit Hooper said the New York Bank of Com merce'desired to come under this law. It had a capital of $19,000.000'and had done more to sustain the government tbsa any other institution. Daring the debate some gentTemefi reward ed Hooper's amendment as making an in\it dicious restriction, and argued that the pro viso of the bill should be applicable to sill banking institutions. Finally Hoopers amendment waa adopt ed 49 against 45. Wilson, of Iowa, i»ove«l to amend the section providing for the redemption of notes so is to confine it to Now York, Phil adelphia and Boston. This was rejected. Without concluding action on the hill the committee rose and tho House adjournal. Whereabevt* Forrmt, mu4 Wirt A4aa«, IfemphU, April $.

A MAGNIFICENT RAILWAY CAR­ RIAGE.—The director* of the Great Eastern Railway Company are con structing a specimen of railway car* riage, which, for luxury and beauty, can only he compared to Cleopatra's valley. Talk of "purple sails, and sails of silver, and pavilion of cloth of gold the carriage which is being built at Stratford for tbe use of the Prince and Prineess of Wales is quite as fine '*1 wish I was a Princess," the little lady plaintively says in the nursery story "then I could have su gar candy for breakfast."

A GBBAT CURIOSITY—A WHITE DEER.—About four years ago a pure white deer was seen near Rice Lakes, in Anoka couty. Last week another was seen near the same place and efforts made to secure it.

It is a pare milk-white, with pink eyes and hoofs, and has not a spot of any other color on its hide. It weighs seventy-five pounds, and is I perhaps a year old. Mr. Holgate intends to stulf it lor a cariosity, Which it is indeed. This deer is a lusos natura. There are no purely white deer in any part of tiie world, and this fawn is a mere freak of nature, tbe same as a white blackbird,'' or an albino.
