Mr. TUmsey introduced a bill to facilitate postal Intercourse with foreign countries, which was referred to th Committee on Post Offices and Post Boads.

The Garbled Uoeoneili. Mr. Boss forwarded to the Clerk and had read statements contained In a Washington newspaper of this morning, intimating that certain correspondence in connection with the sale of the Black bob Shawnee lands, of which he ( Mr. Koss) bad charge, had been garbled in its publication in consequence of material omissions. lie said it was true Hie documents referred to bad bceu prepared under bis direction, but that he had embraced in it only such matters as lie considered essential to a proiwr understanding of tiie facts by the Somite, his object being to save unnecessary expense in printing, and facilitate an intelligent presentation of the case. A letter addressed by him to the Secretary of the Interior, and rccit 1113 these facts, was also read by request of Mr. Kuss. An Indian Treaty. Mr. Wilson p resented the memorial of Committee appointed by a convention of colored people residing 111 the Choctaw and Chickasaw country, representing that a recent treaty violated their rights as to lands owned by them, and was in many respects outrageous, deferred te the Commutee on ludian Affairs. The Gear;!. BI1L At one o'clock the Georgia bill was taken op, the gaueries neing wronged, in anticipation 01 a speech by Mr. Revels, the colored Senator from Mississippi, who bad been announced to speak on Uie subject. Mr. Mouton. who was entitled to the floor, said he would yield it iu favor of the Senator from Mis sissippi. Mr. Kevels then commenced bis remarks, which, durine their entire delivery, were listened to wait the closest attention by the Senate and the audience, wnicn aeuseiy uiiea me galleries, SWMof Bevels Rubra nil Flrat Address. Mr. Reveij spoke as follows: Mr. President: I rise at this Dartlcular Innctnra in the discussion of the Georgia bill with feelings wnicn perhaps uerer be:ore entered into tne experience of any member at this body. I rise, too, with ir.isgivings as to the propriety of lifting my voice at this early period after my admission into the Senate. Peruana it were wiser for me. so in experienced iu the details of Senatorial duties, to remain a passive listener to tne progress 01 this debate. But when I remember that my term is short, and that the issues with which this bill is fraught are momentous in their present and future Influence noon the well-being: of my race. I would seem imlicerent to the importance of the hour and recreant to the high trust Imposed upon me, if I hesitated to lend my voioe on behalf of the loyal people of the South. I therefore waive all thought as to the propriety Of entering into this discussion. Breaking through a generally understood etiquette of this body, whan questions arise winch bear upon the safely and vretectina of the loyal white and colored popula tion of those States lately in rebellion. I cannot alluw any thought as to mere propriety to enter Into my consideration of dutv. The responsibilities 01 veins me exponent 01 sucu a constituency as 1 have the liour to represent, are fnlly appreciated by me. 1 bear about me daily the keenest sense of their weight, and that feeling prompts me now to nit my voice tor the nrst time in this council chamber of the natiou : and. sir. I s and to-dav on this floor to appeal for protection from the strong arm of the Government for her toval children. Irrespective of color and -ace. who are citizens of tin southern Mates, aud particularly of thegrea! State of Oreorsia. 1 am well aware, sir, that the Idea is abroad that an antagonism exists between the whites and ixacKs: mat that race which the natiou raised from the degradation of slavery and endowed with the full and unqualified rights aud privileges of citizenship are intent upon power at whatever price it can be gained. It has been the well considered purpose and aim of a class not confined to the South to spread this charge ever the land, and their erforts are as vigorous to-day to educate the people of this nation into that belief as they were at tiie close of the war. It was not uncommon to find this same class, even during the Rebellion, prognosticating a servile war. It may have been that "the wish was fattier to the thought." Aud. sir, as the recognized representative of my down-trodden people, I deny the cliai ge, and hurl it back into the teeth of those Who make it. and who. 1 believe, have not a true and conscientious desire to further the interests of the w hole South. Certainly no one possessing any personal knowledge of the colored population of my own or other Mates, need be reminded of the noble conduct of tliat people under the most uying circumstances in tne History 01 tne late war. When they were beyond the protection of the feuerai forces, whiie tiie Confederate irnr pressed into its ranks every white male capable of iwaiiug arms, in roomers, wives, daughters and Sisters of the Southern soldiers were left defenseless and in the power of the blacks, upon whom the chains of slavery were still riveted, aud to biud those chains Hit closer was the real issue for which so much life aud property were sacrificed ; and now, sir, 1 ask bow did that race act? bid tiiev iu those days of Confederate weakness and imno- teuce eviuce the malignancy of which we bear so Biuchf Granting, for the sake of argument, that they were ignorant aua ucsoiieu wnicn 1 00 oot oe-tieve vet with all their supposed ignorance and credulity, they, in their way, understood as fully as you or 1 the awful import of the contest They knew that if the gallant corps of soldiers were beaten back and their nag trauea in tne oust, that it was the prestige of still heavier bondage. Tbev loneed. tno. as their fathers before them. for the advent of that epoch, over which was shed the hallowed light of inspiration itself. They desired, too, with their fathers, to welcome the feet of the stranger shod with the peaceful pieparation of good news. Wearv vears of bond age had told their tale of sorrow to the court of iieaven. In the councils of the great Father of all they knew the adjudication of their ease. albeit uelayed for years, iu which patient suffering had nearly exliaustcd itself, would In the end briiur to them tiie boon for which they sighed (iod's most oirru fin t his creatures, tne inestimanie coon of liberty. 'i-hev waited, and tlwv waited iwawiitiv. ln the absence of their masters t hey protected tiie vti mm aMicuMMiy 01 oeienseiess women. lniliK, sir. far a moment, what the condition f this laud would be to day if the slave population had risen to servrie insurrection against the who mouth by mouth were fighting to perpetuate that institution which brought to theaiall the evils of which tbev complained. V, here would have been the security for property, female chastity aud childhood's Innocence j the bloody counterpart of such a story of cruelty aud wrong which would have been paratWres only in rhote chapters of Jewisii history as recorded by Josephua, er la the sull later atrocities of that reign of terror which sent the unfortunate Louis the Sixteenth and Marie Antoinette to the scafu-ld. nay, tne deeds in that drama of cold-Mooned butchery would have out-Heroded the most diabolical acts of Herod himself. j Mr. President, I maintain that the past record of my race is a true liuiex of the feelim-, which tn. day animate them. They bear toward their former masters no revengeful thoughts, no hatred, no animosities. They aim not to elevate themselves by sacrificing one single interest of their white fellow-citizens. They auk but the rights which are theirs by God's universal law, and which are the natural outcrowth. the Wicn.1 aenuence. of the condition in which the legislative enactments of tins uauon nas placed them, l hey appear to you and to me to see that they receive that protection which alone wiU enable them to pursue their daily avocations with success, and eniov the liberties of citizenship on the same footing with their white ueignoors ana 11 lends. I do not desire simply to defend my own race from unjust and unmerited charges, but I also desire to place upon record an expression ol my full and entire confidence in the integrity of purpose with which 1 believe the President, Congress and the Republican party will meet these questions, se Prolific of weal or woe not only to my own people, but to the whole South. They have oeen, so lar as 1 can reaa tue nistory 01 tne tunes, iniluenced by no spirit of petty tyranny. The poet has well said that "It is excellent ; i To have a giant s strength, but It is tyrannous to iiua it liba a (riant " And how have they used that power lodged In them by the people? In acts of cruelty aud oppression toward those who sought to rend iu twain tills goodly fabric of our fathers the price less Heritage 01 so nuicn hardship ana endurance iu Revolutionary times Let the reconstruction enactments answer the interrogation. fco poor woras 01 mine are needed to attend tne wise ana be lie lice nt legislation which has been extended alike to white aud colored citizens. The Republican party is not inflamed, as some would fain have the country believe, against the white population of the South. Its borders are wide enough for all truly loyal men to Hud within them peaee and repose from the dm and discord of angry faction. And, be that loyal man while or black, that great party of our Republic will, if consistent with the record it bat already made for posterity, throw around him the same impartial security iu his pursuit of liberty and happiness. If a certain class at the South had accepted In good faith the benevolent overtures which were offered to them with no niggard hand to-day would not find our land still bauassed with feuds aud contentions. I remarked. Mr. President, that I arose to Dlead for protection for the defenseless race who now send their delegation to the seat of Government to sue for that which this Congress aloue can secure to tliem. and here let me say further that the people of the North owe to the colored race a deep obligation which It is no easy matter t fulfill. When the f ederal armies were thinued by death and disaster and sombre clouds overhung the length and breadth of the Republic, and the very air was pregnant with the rumors of foreign inter- lerence, iu tnose uara aays 01 aeieat, wnose memories even yet haunt us as an ugly dream, from what source did our nation in iu seeming death throes gain addition and new-fouud powerf It was the sable sons of the South that valiantly rushed to the rescue, and. but for their intrepidity and ardent daring, many a Northern fireside would miss 10-aay paternal counsels or a oroiuers love. - fir, 1 repeat the fact, that tne colored race saved to the noble women of Kew England and the Mid dle States men 011 whom they lean to-day for se curity and safety. Many of my race, the repre sentatives 01 these men ou tue neia 01 battle, sleep in the countless graves of the South. If those qniet resting places of our honored dead should speak to day, what a mighty voice, like to the rushing of a mighty wind, would come up from those sepulchral homes. Could we resist the elo quent pleadings 01 their appeal! Ah, sir, I think that this question of immediate and ample protection for the loyal people of Georgia would lose its legal technicalities, and we would cease to hesi tate in our provisions for their instant relief. Again, I regret this delay on other grounds. The taunt is frequently Bung at us that a Nemesis more terrible than the Greek Deinonation of tiie aimer of the gods awaits her hour of direful retribution. We are tokl that at no distant day a great uprising 01 tne American people win demand uutt these reconstruction acts of Congress be undone and Diottea iorever irom tne anuais 01 legislative enactment. I inquire, sir. if thit delay tn affording protec tion to the loyalists of the State of Georgia does not lend an uncomfortable signillcancy to this boasting sneer with which we are so often nietl Delay is perilous at best, for it is as true in legislation as in physic, that the longer we procrastinate to apply the proper remedies, the more chronic be comes tne inaiaay mat we sees to neau The land wants such as dare with rigor execute the laws. Her festered members must be lanced aud tended. He's a bad surgeon that for pity spares The p u t corrupted till the gangrene spread s And all the body perish, lie that is merciful Unto the bad is cruel to the good." Mr. Revels then reviewed the history of affairs Id Georgia, stating that at the electiou in Move tuber, 1867, for members to a State Convention, thirty thousand while and eighty thousand colored votes were poneu, aua a number 01 colored dele gates elected. A Constitution was framed aud rauneo, anu tne legislature eicctea unuer it was convened. After all this, supposing they had passed beyond Congressional control, the rebel element iu the Legislature asserted itself, and many 01 tnose wnose disabilities had Depu removed iy tne state convention, wnicn comprised a number of colored members, joined in tiie declaration which was made bv that Legislature that a man having more than an eigiitn of African blood in his veius was ineligible to office. 1 These very men. te whom the Republican party extended all the rights and privileges of citizenship, v( which they bad deprived themselves, denied political equality to a large majority of their fellow-citizens.. Twenty-eight members were expelled. On December 22, Ms), an act of Congress was passed requiring tne reassembling 01 the persons declared elected by the military commander. the restoration of the expelled members, aud the rejection of others who weredisqualilied. All conditions bad been now complied with, and having rati nea tne rourteeutn ana ruieentn constitutional amendments, Georgia presented herself for recognition. me wngnam amendment proposed to legalize the organization of 18Ui, and would legalize the act of the Legislature in appointing tne judges who had decided in favor of class distinction in the State. As a rueaus of future protection for loyal Georgians, he desired these terms should commence from the date of the present legisla tion, lie asKea tins in tue name 01 one Hundred thousand white and colored citizens of of the State, aud reminded the Senate that be who permitted oppression shared the crime. upon uie conclusion 01 111s remarks Mr. iteveis received the congratulations of many Republican Senators aud others, aud the immense audieuce iu the galleries, which included many persons of color, slowly dispersed. - Mr. MoitTON, in complimenting Mr. Revels on his speech, expressed Uie opinion that In the exchange which had been made, by which that geu-tlewaa occupied the place of Jefferson Davis, the Senate had lost notliiug in intelligence, while it had gained much in patriotism aud loyalty. He proceeded to argue that the Government of Georgia was provisional, and would so coutiuue until actually represented in Congress. He claimed that iu the reconstruction legislation Congress simply exercised the power of guaranteeing a republican form of government, but bad never assumed to give a particular construction to the Constitution of a State, as did the Bingham amendment iu declaring the length of the terms of the present Suite 0 dicers. He also argued that Uie substantial reason for the report of the Judiciary Committee in 1869 against tue admission of Mr. Hill as a Senator from Georgia was that tiie organization of the Legislature was Told from the beginning. Mr. Thurman Inquired whether. In that event, the action of the Legislature iu ratifying the Fourteenth Amendment would hold good. Mr. Mokton replied that he concurred in the opinion set forth in a former report of Uie Judiciary Committee, that that action wax not valid because the defects in the organization went to a violation of the fundamental law that created the body. Mr. Morton went on to review the whole question, and to controvert the positions assumed by Mr. Trumbull, particularly with reference; to the the validity of the composition of the Georgia Legislature. The proposed Bingham amendment, be said, was to-day a source of exultation to the extreme or Southern wing of the Democratic parly, and he opposed it as a violation of Justice aud of human rights. Mr. Howard then took tiie floor, but yielded to amotion by Mr. Williams to go into executive session, which, after an inefteciual effort by Mr. Trumbull to prolong the session so as to dispose of the bill, was agreed to. The Senate then, at 3'3r, went Into executive sessiou, and subsequently adjourned. BOUSE OF BEPBESEXTATirES. Meveriaroraery'B ft word. Mr. Petbrs presented papers from the State Department relative to the sword of General Mont gomery, now In possession of J, T. Hanover, In Us city et Washington, who Is willing to dispose of it Referred to the Committee on Library. , Tfca "Oneida." V Mr. Bcbk offered a resolution calling on the Sec retary of the Navy for Information relative to the Oneida and Bombay collision. Adopted. Contested Election Ciue. Mr. Stevenson, from the Committee on Elec tions, made a report In the Louisiana contested election case of Hunt against Sheldon, declaring Mr. Sheldon entitlted te the seat, and gave notice that he would call It up next Wednesday. Government Expenditure. Mr. Beamaji. a member of the Committee on Appropriations, addressed th rlrnm In reolv to a denial of the statements made by Mr. Beck last Friday, in regard to tiie expenditures of the Government, which Mr. Keck alleged would reach nearly four hundred miHtons. The entire amount estimated for expenditure for the current year was oniy wmumzj. He (Mr. ilea men) pronosea to ascertain, it possible, the expenditures of the fiscal years ending June 30, 1863, and June 30, 1S69, and tne prooaiite expenditures of the current nscai year. The expenditures for 18K, exclusive of interest and principal of the public debt and premiums paid on Treasury notes, amounted to tS2'.l.- 915,088. The expeuditures for 1IW9, with like ex ceptions, amounted to 190,iy6.254. The expenditures of the first bait of the current fiscal year, ending December 31, 1869, with like exceptions, amounted to iS7.216,969. The expenditures lor the remainder of the year would be still less, but assumins thein to be the same, the entire expenditures for the year would amount to only $174,339,380. From this sum should be deducted the amount of repayments, exclusive of repayments on account of interest by disbursing officers, estimated at $8,31)1.559, being t63,78li,7o9 less than those of 1868, aud $21,353,9,6 less than tnose oi lsbu. He thought that the gentleman from Kentucky had entirelv mistaken tiie character of the Secre tary's statement in executive document 155, The Secretary did not say in that document that all the balances would be expended during the current year, but did say that be transmitted tne amounts estimated as necessary to complete the service of tue currant nscai year, estimated ana actual 01s-bursemeut were very different things. The statement of the Secretary, fairly construed simnly meant that tliese balances should not be carried to Uie surplus fund. In tiiis case, be had merely followed the practice of the departments. He (Mr. Beanuirs) did not defeud the practice, but the Departments and bureaus had ever been disposed to hold on to unexpended balances to be used in cases of exigencies, aud bad ever been uu-williug to bare tneut transferred to the surplus fund. The Secretary ha1 nowhere stated that these balances would all be used, and he (Mr. Beamaii) asserted that the facts and figures showed that they would not all be expend! during tiie pres ent fiscal year. The ainouut of appropriations lor tne current nscai year was iil,;a,'.Wi. me nuexpended balances were S103,3V4,U9, making the amount available, $21U24,(k. lio had already shown . that the expenditure for the year, ex clusive of payments growing out of the pubiio debt, could not exceed Slo6.132.37ti, aud that sum deducted from the amount available would leave to be used, of unexpended balances, the sum of (4,699,01)8. lie had made these statements and calculations without refereuce to the payment of a portion of the public debt and the interest and premiums thereon. That was evidently the ouly true rule lor testing tne economy or extravagance 01 an administration. Payment on the public debt was in 110 Just sense au expenditure of the Administration. It was but the disbursement of money in discharge of pre-existing obligations. - But even if the gentleman from Kentucky had Inteuded to include iu his statement of $4uu,00o.uU0 all moneys disbursed aud to be disbursed during the present fiscal year, he would be "holly unable to show expenditures to any such amount. He (Mr. beaman) had shown that the expeuditures exclusive of payments appertaining to the public debt could not exceed nR;,l:i2,3TS: add to that amount the sum of tLS.b90.b7b' appropriated for payment 01 interest, ana tne wnoie amount woutu only be S&H.i23,u54. He bad deemed it proper to make his statement in reply to the remarkable assertion of the gentleman from Kentucky. The advancement already made by the Administration In the work of retrenchment proved most conclu sively that the President was prompt to redeem his pledge made la oeliait ot economy, and he pre oicted with conndence that the work already commenced in which the people had so deep an inter. est, would be continued during President Grant's Administration. Mr. Bkck repeated his assertion made last Fri day, ami agaiu enumerated tne ugures wmcn warranted huu in putting the total expenditures for the current fiscal year at near t4ou,uou,uuu. The total amount appropriated was 2Sl,ooo,uuO. To that was to be added the amount of unexpended balances, llu2,uuu,uoo, less about $,0uo,uuo to De carried over to the surplus, say tf.n.ouu.ww, which, with sums siuce appropriated, would run the total amount up to between $3iiU,uuu,(M and $40u,ou0,uua Gentlemen were playing fast and loose 011 this questioa of economy. The Cuairman of the Committee on Appropriations (Mr. Dawes) bad stated the expenditures during the last year of Mr. Johnson's administration at $3ti8,buU,(MU, and tiie Chairman ot the Committee en banking and Currency (Mr. Garfield) bad stated them at $31.UU0,uu0. The latter gentleman had slated the expenditures of the current year at &VA0Uu,iX)Ul while the statement of the Secretary ot tue Treasury showed litem to be uearly l,uuu,0U0 more. Mr. (jakkiei u remarked that be had quoted absolutely from the Secretary's report. Mr. KficK Then the Secretary reports one thins one day ami another thmj another day. Mr. Waskbuhn (Wis.), explained that In the public service it was necessary to have liberal margins, aud that it would probably be louud tual the unexpended balances at tiie end of this fiscal year would equal those at the end of last jear. The matter then passed over, and the House took up aud passed uie Dellcieucy bill, -j Alr-Ltm Sailrond. ' The House then took up the bill for an air-line railroad between Mew York and Washington. Quite au amusing scene occurred between Mr. In-gersoll, who had charge of the bill, and various members who wanted the names of certain corporators struck out of the bill and names of others Inserted. Among the names inserted was that of Mr. Horace Greeley. The amendment by Mr. Lough ridge, last week, reserving to Congress Uie right to alter and ameud the act, was agreed to yeas, 97; nays, 67. The previous question was ordered on the pas sage of the bill, aud then the morniug hour having expired, it went over till tue next morning hour. Bills Introduced. Bills were Introduced and referred as follows: by Mr. Cullom. annulling certain oppression in Idaiio Territory. by Mr. Shki.dok (La.), for the sale of the Mint aud Marine Hospital at flew Orleans. By Mr. Houfbr, te promote international coinage. The bill pr oposes to carry out tiie views expressed in the report of Mr. Uuggies, American delegate to the International Coinage Congress. Mr. Scui'Makbr asked leav to oner a resolution reciting complaints made by New York merchants against regulations as to cartage ami storage made by the Collector of the Port, aud instructing the Committee on Commerce to inquire tulo them, lie slated that lie wished the resolution adopted now as the Collector was at present in Washington, but Mr. kELSET (ST.

Mr. Looan, from tbe Committee on Military Affairs, on the eadetnhip investigation made a report in Uie case of Butler (Tenn.), statiug that the Committee had arrived at tiie following conclusions: First. That on Uie 7th of February, 18o9, Mr. Butler recommended the appointment of Augustus C. Tyler, sou of General Tyler, to the West Point Academy. Second. That Augustus C. Tyler was uot a resideut of the First Congressional District of Xennesiee. Third. That after the appointment was made, an agent or attorney of General Tyler had giveu to Mr. Butler nine hundred dollars, and Utat Mr. Butler bad received it with the avowed intention of using it for political purposes in Tennessee. The Committee expresses the opinion that the conduct ef Mr. HuUer in appointing a son-resident of Ins district, and subsequently accepting money from General Tyler, deserves the condemnation ot the House. Messrs. btuuthtoa, begiey, Packard and Asper. of the Committee, recommend tbe adoption of the following resolution: JiemAwi, That the House declares its condemnation of the action of Heu. K. K.

The House then, at nuarter D.tst two o'clock. P. M., went into Commutee of the Whole, Mr. Wheeler in the chair, on the Tariff bill, and was addressed by Mr. Blair in support of the bill. He approved it as a whole, and believed that its enactment would prove beneficial to the country. The tariff and revenue laws should be kept up to their present producing power, because tne ability to place a new loan at a lower rate of interest depended entirely 011 the amount of surplus revenue. There were pestilent little exactions iu the internal revenue law which be would like to see removed, and which, like the insects ot the summer n ight, annoyed more than they exhausted. Among these were the taxes on the gross receipts and sales of all the petty articles contained in schedule A. Mr. Wi.nans followed with a speech advocating tbe free trad e side of the question, and the Committee then rose, Mr. Sokenck giving notice that be would press to go into Committee early to-morrow, and also move for an evening session. Petitions were presented by Messrs. CAUCrsand BiKO against the Stale 1'ilot laws. The House then, at five o'clock, adjourned. LEGAL UrTEIXIGENCE. ITnlted State District CoartJndge Cad-wniader.

In the rase of certain real estate, situate In Mc- Clellan street, Dear Moyamensing avenue, aud claimed by John Barnet, which was proceeded against on the ground that an illicit distillery was carried on there, a verdict was rendered by agree ment, forfeiting to the Government that part of the premises which was actually used for the pur pose! of distilling, aud laving the residue to the claimants. .

Kail Hon w M rrancm W W Kdox wife, Pitt if W N, leaa Purchasing tbk Camden Water Works. Negotiations in one form or anottMl have been going on for several years past, with a view to induce the City Council to purchase the Camden Water Works. Various plans have been proposed, and various prices named, but tbe Council deemed the prices .too high, and so tbe affair went on from year to year, until tbe question to purchase was finally submitted to a vote of the people; and they, believing it would impose sn additional taxation on them, defeated it by about twelve hundred majority. At present, however, the proposition comes In a new and far better shape. The Company offer their works for tbe sum of i2U0,uo0, and will lake city water bonds at par sod at seven per cent. Interest said bonds to run for twenty years. - Tbe City Councils are disposed to take the works on the terms offered, but there was a legal impediment which bad to be overcome. Tbe old charter of the city prohibited that body from purchasing tbe works at any price beyond tbe par value of the stock, and the price ssked exceeded that by about (40,000. lience additional legislatiou was needed to remedy tbe defect. This was obtained last week, the Legislate! re having passed an enabling act. It now remains with the City Council to decide whether that body will or will not buy tbe works. Child Abandoned. A colored child, apparently sbout six weeks eld, wn found in an alley near Benson and Henry streets, Csmden, night before last, wiiere it had been abandoned by its heartless mother. It was taken to the police station and given in charge of the Overseer of the Poor of Middle Wsrd. ? The Rolunq Mills. In the United States District Court, at Trenton, en Tuesday, the ac tion of the creditors of tbo Csmden Rolling Mills Company, la selecting a trustee and a committee according to the provisions of the Bankrupt act, to settle up tne Dtisincss or that establishment, has been sustained. Tbe Trustee now has the matter in charge, and it is said tbst tbe mills will be put In operation sgain at an early day, and nnder more favorable auspices. They are in good order. - . Pocket Picked. A colored boy named John Marshall, while asleep in one of tbe cars at the foot of Bridge avenue, Camden, had his pocket cut, his portmonnaie containing some money and other articles stolen. A bootblack named Isaac Anderson was arrested charged with tne robbery. Tbe articles were found in his possession, and Mayor Cox committed him to answer. e : Additional TBAix.-The West Jersey Railroad Company, on Monday, put an additional accommodation train on their road between Camden and Woodbnry, for persons wishing to visit the two cities. The ears leave Camden at 11-55 A.M. Returning, leave Woodbury at 2 o'clock P. M. This train will be a great advantage to a large class of people along the road. . Kobbbp.t. Some time during Monday night tbe store of Mr. Grant, on Market street, below Front, Camden, was broken into and robbed of quite a lot of goods. , Theft of a Boat. A boat was yesterday morning stolen from the yard of Messrs. Butcher & Collins, at Cooper's Point, aud no trace of it has siuce been bad. V ANOTHER HCRRCFf. ; : Af rooions Murder nt Woodvllle, Pa,. A Woman Miol and liiiled -fccape oi sue niuruerer. , : A fearful tragedy, in which an innocent woman was snatched from earth bv tbe hand of sn as sassin, was enacted at Woodville, a small hamlet or village sbout three miles west ef Mansfield, Pa., and nearly on a line of tbe Pittsburg. Cin cinnati and St. Louis Railway, between three and fonr o'clock, on Monday afternoon, the victim Doug sirs. Margaret iobio. , . . Tkellerder. The first newt of tbe murder reached Pittsburg through a brother of J tbe deceased, Charles Mc carty, who came to town on a train on tbe Pan Handle Kailrood, with a view of notifying the aiayor s ponce oi tue murder. Mr. McCarty stated that be was working a short distance from the hortse. His sister was washing and dressing one of tbo children, as he believed. and the little one becoming troublesome, she gave it a severe "spanking." Just then the brother beard one shot, then another inside the house, and hastening to the spot, he was horrified at seeing the form of his sister lying upon the floor of the down-statr reoin, tbe cleod streaming from a wound is her breast, and also one in her right arm. cue aien aunosi immediately, never speaking a word. The murderer bad escaped. No one appeared to nave been in tbe bouse at the time of j the sad occurrence, but it seems that tbe murderer, Thomas Heard on, gave as a reason to some one be ssw after the shooting, "that Mrs. Tobin had refused to let the little child look out of a window, aud had pulled it dowu and spanked it, aud then he bad come down from an up-stairs apartment aud shut her." mere were two wounds on the person of the deceased, oue iu the tlcshy part of the right arm, and tbe other through the heart. This latter wound produced dcatu. The wound in the arm was a trifling one. Mrs. Tobin was between 35 and 36 years of age; was born in Ireland, and bad been married about eighteen years. She bad eleven children, eight of them still riving. Tbe oldest is about 16, and the youngest 2. She has kept a boarding bouse for the post seventeen years, but has only been at Woodville since September, 1863. Tbe HardererV Thomas Reardon, is described as being a large, heavy set, red faced Irishman. lie was very shabbily dressed, and fled from the house immediately after firing the fatal shot. A short distance from the househe met sn acquaintance, and oa being questioned as to why be was in such a hurry answered that one of Mrs. Tobin's children bad been taken luddeoly in and be was on his way for a physician, lie was allowed to pass by, and this person with whom the murderer conversed, arriving at tbe bouse, stopped snd looked hi and there saw tbe deceased lying on the floor dead. By this time he was out of sight. Search for the) Barderer. News of the murder soon stretched from one end of the village to tbe other, and scouting parties were formed and despatched in every direction to, if possible, cut off the retreat of tbe coldblooded villain. At last accounts, however, he bad not been apprehended. lie bad boarded with Mrs. Tobin about four weeks, and worked with Mr. Tobin on tbe railroad. Mr. Tobin worked at what is called the "dump," and Reardon at the pit. For some unaccountable reason be did not go to work at all on Monday, else the horrible tragedy might not have occurred. When the mother of the deceased wss Informed of the tragedy her mind gave way, and it is feared she will become a confirmed lunatic.
