DRATR OF fK W. WIATOK. At 10 o'clock Uilt forenoon our well, taown and universally beloved fallow, euuen William Winston Seaton died at his residence, In this city, in the eighty, second year of his age. Ills disease was cancer upon the ffcee, from which he was an intense sufteror in the bast year. He came to Washington and became the partner of his hrotTicr.in.law, the late Jo. soph Gales, Emi., in the proprietorship of the Xaiional lmellujfi\crr, in October, 1812, since which period, until increasing age and infirmities rendered him incapable of active business labors ? a year or two since ?he was more tl?o roughly identified with the progresK of the Federal metropolis than perhaps any other of Its leading citi. lens. As will be well remembered by thousands around us, his administration of Washington's municipal affairs while the j city's Mayor resulted in great and many j lasting benefits to the city's interest*. NotI withstanding his prominent position for ' nearly half a century in connection with national and municipal public affairs, he i lived as he died, literally without a single j enemy. No man ever spoke ill of him, for ; he never earned the ill-will of any man. No other citizen of Washington was so l?ul>lic-spirited throughout a career of such ureat length. None were kinder or more charitable to all, without regard to party, sect, or color ; and 110 one has died in this city more universally regretted than William Winston Seaton. ? Star, 1 6th. THE NKW TAX BILL. The Finance Committee have about finished the tax bill, and will probably report it on Monday. In a general way, it may l>e said that their views are not widely difli-rent from those held by the Ways and Means Committee. Consequently they have ftestorud the three per cent, duty on reapers, mowers, and threshing machines, and have struck woodenware, sorghum, machinery, and iron bridges from the free list. Printing paper is the only kind of paper left on the free list, a very slight duty being laid on other kinds. Sulphur and saltpetre have been added to the free list. General Schenck's cigar and cigarette clause lias been killed, and it is understood that but one or two classes will be made, with rates about midway between the views of the Ways and Means report and the Schcuck amendment. The income section has not been finally acted on, but there is a disposition to leave the law as it now stands. The cotton tax is reduced to two cents : the clothing duty is increased to two per cent.; the whisky tax is unchanged; the j salary of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue is fixed at six thousand dollars ; gas companies are to be allowed to add the i tax on gas to their customers' bills. ?

Taylor, of the Treasury Department, upon the following established facts : Mr. Weage bought ten $1,000 United States bonds, with consecutive numbers. Having no lire-proof safe, he cut off the coupons, as he asserts, for additional security against tire, burglary, etc. Four of the bonds were subsequently stolen from him, and all efforts to recover them have proved fruitless. He asked for a reissue of the I bonds. Mr. Taylor decided that for the ! bonds and coupons returned entire, though ! separated, new ones can be issued ; for I those stolen but not recovered, new bonds j cannot be issued. The law does not authorize the issue of new for lost or stolen I ones. The holder can collect the interest coupons as they mature, but nothing more

can oe aone. THE COUNTRY WILL SOON BE STARTLED by the avowal on the part of the leading Radicals in Congress that it will only require the votes of three-fourths of the States now represented in Congress- that is to say, the votes of nineteen States- to ratify the constitutional amendment. The Radicals have determined to insist upon this, and to declare the amendment ratified as soon as nineteen States have so voted. MR. HARRIS, OK MARYLAND, receives many felicitations to-day upon his speech of yesterday. Tho Radicals are greatly incensed at it, and would instantly 1 expel Mr. Harris if they did not know that he would be immediately re-elected by his devoted constituents, whom he so faithj fully represents. ? lb. | tiii: ROl'SHE a l'-U r i x n ell difficulty. In order.that your readers may not form ? erroneous ideas in relation to the whipping administered bv General Rousseau, of Kentuckv, to Mr. Grinnell, I will state that ! the provocation is regarded as being such i as no gentleman could overlook. Not only was General Rousseau insulted and slaudered in the grossest and most vituperative manner, and with the foulest language on the floor of the House by Grinnell, but the Speaker would not interfere to check Grinnell, but permitted him to go on uurebuked, and then gave as an excuse that lie could not check a member unless some one made a point against him. The punishment was laid on with a stout rattan, which was used must effectively till it broke. No one interfered or separated the parties outside of the Radicals who took Grinnell's part. Public opinion justifies General Rousseau. A resort to violence as a general thing is, of course, condemned ; but this was an exceptionable case, and the general vcrdict is that Grinnell deserved ail he got, but did not get all that he deserved. ? lb. NEW HAMPSHIRE SENATOR. Conservative politicians arc not sorrv for the defeat of Mr.Clarke as a candidate for reelection to the United States Senate from New Hampshire. Mr. Clarke has claimed political preferment on the ground of his extreme radicalism, as evidenced in his zeal for negro suffrage, and for the ejection of Mr. Stockton from his seat. That the claim was not recognized is a matter of surprise as well as of congratulation. Emory and Henry College.? At the recent commencement exercises of this institution there were ten contestants for the Robertson prize medal. It was awarded to Mr. Selden Langlev. The valedictory address by Mr. Vawter, and the address before the societies by Rev. Mr. Lacy, are highly spoken of. The Abingdon VirgL nian says : " Under all the circumstances, Emory and Henry is in a more prosperous condi. tion than its friends had lioped for it for a time. ^It had one hundred matriculates and a very full faculty.

Vw^Mn AmmwMjt. \ Fnm Saturiay's BaUlaow 0?k?tt?. | A meeting of the Fourth PresbyteriAn Chnrch, at Franklin Square, took pl#"e last night at tho request of the pasto.% Rev. Dr. J. A. Lefevre. The congregate was Urge, and Dr. Lefevre spoke of tht action of the General Assembly of the Church fVom 1846 up to the late session. | In 1845, he said, the Assembly passed resolutions declnring that those who taught abolitionism taught a doctrine opposed to the Bible, and up to 1861 that sentiment prevailed. At the laid named date the body took up political subjects. A protest was then made by about one-fourth of the Assembly, and among the signers of that protest were Kev. Drs. John C. Backus and Cyrus Dickson, of this city. lie read the protest to the congregation. In 18f>2 and 18(13 that action was aftirmed, and slavery was made a test of member, ship. But the crowning net was that of the late session, which requires every pastor to examine persons from the seceded States applying for membership, and if such shall not declare their love for the Government of the United States, they must be excluded from the communion of the Church. That action was unconstj^ tutional and opposed to the spirit of the Old School Presbyterian Church, and he would rather obey G<h1 than man. For ten years he had endeavored to teach his people the doctrine of the Bible, and now lie could teach no other. He had been tempted to leave them by the offer of a pleasant and profitable charge, but if they accorded with him, he would love to remain with them. lie should, however, shortly dissolve his connection with the General Assembly, and hoped on Wednesday night next to hear the decision of the congre. gat ion. There seemed to be but one feeling among those present, and that was in accord with those of the pastor. On Wednesday night next there will be another meeting, when the Church will decide whether to hold to the General Assembly or go with Dr. Lefevre. Heavy Receipt* of drain. Buffalo, June 14. ?

About a dozen of the clergymen in attendance upou the Lutheran Syi nod in session at Lancaster paid their I respects to ex-President Buchanan at Wheatland on Thursday, and were most cordially received by that gentleman. A ! neat speech of introduction was made by ' Rev. C. F. Schaeffer, D. I)., of Philadelphia, who in the course of his remarks ? said that though many of the present ? generation were denouncing the ex-Presi-dent in unmeasured terms, he had no doubt that posterity would do ample jus. . tiee to his lame and the patriotic motives . which governed his administration. The ' ex-President replied in a brief but feeling and eloquent manner to Dr. Schaeffer's remarks, and the remainder of the visit was devoted to social conversation. The reverend gentlemen left highly pleased with the courteous manners and dignified bearing of the venerable ex- President. ? Jjancaater Intelligencer.

UNDERWOOD'S FEARS OF ASSASSINATION We can imagine nothing more ludicrous than Underwood's fears of assassination, and the consequent rumors growing out of his weakness in this respect. His fears, or those of his friends, have even designated the assassin, namely, Dr. Maddux, of this city. " The thief sees an officcr in every hush," and the guilty Underwood sees an avenger of wrongs in every Confederate. We might undertake to quiet his apprehensions, for we are sure that he is safe from harm. He is looked upon with contempt, not with hatred. No one values his opinions or wishes, or even so much as holds him responsible for his silly twaddle upon the bench. He reminds us of a demented man we saw in Washington years ago who constantly labored under the idea that Louis Napoleon and the Emperor of Russia were anxiously searching the world over to find him. When these potentates catch and hang the Washington lunatic, the Alexandria booby may begin to tremble. The Cumberland Gap Railroad Company. ? Francis B. Deane, Esq., of Lynchburg, in a letter to B. R. Floyd, Esq., sets forth the importance of constructing the Cumberland Gap railroad, showing that is the shortest route to the Atlantic from l the west, and preferable for various reai sons. -v THE MOBILE SCHOOLMARM WHO MARRIED A NEGRO.- A great excitement was created among the adherents of the negro bureau in Mobile a few days ago by the marriage in that city of a former slave of General Beauregard's to a white woman by the name of Jones, and a teacher of the freedmen. The couple have left for the home of the woman's parents in the north, where there will doubtless be a great jubilee over this manifestation of civil rights when the pair arrive. As the unfortuuate female's parents were doubtless abolitionists, and are now in the Radical faith, they cannot but be rejoiced at the progress that has been made by their docile offspring. But, seriously, this case presents the light of a public affront, and comes under the laws of Alabama that declare miscegenation a penitentiary offence. -New York News. 16th The Prairies Becoming Forests.? 1 Western papers assert that what were vast 1 treeless prairies in Illinois twelve years ago are now covered with a dense growth j of thrifty young forest trees, comprising I various, species of oaks, hickory, cotton- j wood, ash, &c.

The Dally Xeirs savs the appearances in. dicate that a declaration of war, or manii festo equivalent to it, will proceed from | Erussia. The Prussian Government had issued a ' 1 circular note to the neutral Powers, | charging Austria with a flagrant breach of i the treaties by referring the Holstein to I the Diet. Prussia also sent a protest to J Austria, declaring that the measures announced by Austria in the Diet violate the treaty of Gastien, cause a suspension of the Duchies, and restore the Powers to positions accorded by the treaty of Vienna. An Austrian circular declares that Austria will observe the Gastien Convention i until a definite settlement of the question 1 of the Duchies is effected. Her only object in referring the matter to the Diet was to effect such settlements. Military preparations are reported from all quarters. After another long debate on the reform bill, Hoyter's amendment in favor of postponement was withdrawn, and the bill was ultimately referred to the committee with- ! out a division. The impression was abroad that the measure would be withdrawn ; but the Government gives no indication of such a step. Spain increases her army to eighty-five thousand men. LATEST VIA Qt'EEXSTOWX.

The Prussian army consists of four hundred and fifty-two battalions of infantry, three hundred and twenty squadrons of cavalry, and one thousand and eighty-six field pieces.

Maximilian most be Voted Out or the Monroe Doctrine i Abandoned? Our Government being Flush, mailt* to Lend the Liberal* a ' Good Deal. Washington, June 16.? The Senate was | not in session to-day. In the House, Mr. I Stevens gave notice of his intention to offer the following resolution : Resolved , That the Committee on Foreign | Affairs he instructed to inquire into the j propriety of loaning to the Republic of! Mexico, on proper security, twenty millions of dollars, to enable said Republic to j prevent the overthrow of its government and the establishment of a monarchical government on the continent of North America. He addressed the House in favor of the ' proposition. Mr. Stevens said : The time has arrived when we should determine whether the Monroe doctrine was a practical idea or a mere bravado, i Three years ago the measure now proposed might have been cause for war with France. Then to have loaned money to either belligerent would have been a breach of neutrality. So, now to loan money to the Republic may be justly considered a cause for war by Maximilian, for though he he a usurper, he is a belligerent. But France can have no cause of complaint, according to the strictest rule of international law. Without being i aggressive, it is the duty of this nation to make its moral power felt by other nations. Diplomatic essays, smoothly written, which yield everything and command nothing, add nothing to the force of a nation, but rather invito insult and scorn. Why do we allow our avowed principles to be disregarded by any power ? It needs only the flat of this great republic to decide the fate of Maximilian. What a blunder. What a crime to be content with a promise to withdraw the invading for ?es in eighteen months. Before that time m aided Mexico will be ground to atoms, and republicanism in that beautiful country be among the tilings that were. If it is not intended to "ndicate the Monroe doctrine with energy, ' it be abandoned with dignity. In my 'ginent, it was wise to declare that no :< >cign nation should establish a throne on this continent against the consent of the people. Without foreigu aid it is clear that republicanism will bo crushed out in Mexico. Money is required to sustain Juarez's army, and twenty million dollars could be advanced by the United States with a mortgage on Lower California, , Sonora, and other States, which would : make it safe. If Maximilian wants war, it wont alarm us, but give us an opportunity to vindicate our honor, which has become dim under the Micawber policy of our Foreign Secretary. I hope some decided steps will be taken.

In all probability the present revolution will succeed in the final overthrow of Baea'a government. Arrival of the If? and Pitayi*. Nrw York, June 17.? The steamers Hanaa, from Southampton 6th, and PaL. myra, from Liverpool 6th, have arrived. The news baa been generally anticipated.

Nrw York, Jane IT.? Thfe Importa 'afj the put week exefced seren mflUoti* #1 dollars, of which there were four mflllotis of dollars of sugar, ten, and coffbe. The excitement in the gold room baa been interna for several days past. Four or Ave of the heaviest stock speculators have 1 lost fbrtuncs in that time by (browing their money And influence against the rise. A London letter to a banking firm here says the specie arrivals are an immenee thing for American credit. The amount sent from America is everywhere admitted to have saved general bankruptcy in England. The letters to other bankinghouses in this city are very mnch to the same effect. Important Salt. Harkihbi ro, Pa., June 17.?The Pelro* leum Bank at Titnsville, and the Venango Bank at Franklin, have instituted an action against ex- Auditor-General Isaac Henker, and through him against the State of Penn. sylvania, for the recovery of $1,125,000 United States securities deposited by the Auditor-General as security for (he circn. lating medium of those banks. The facts as stated are these : The Arm of Culver, Penn & Co. were in the habit of j taking the notes of the Venango and Petroleum banks for cancellation at the Au-ditor-General's office, where they received a like amount of bonds for that which they presented in notes. It is alleged that the parties thus receiving these bonds were neither agents nor officers of the banks, and that the bonds, instead of being sent to the officers of said banks, were taken to New York and hypothecated by Culver, Penn & Co. It is further alleged that this was done without the authority of the banks, and that it was embezzlement, for which the Auditor-General is responsible. Warrants have been issued, and officers are now in Venango to arrest the parties implicated in the traitaction. The condition of these banks is now in course of official investigation. Dntrnftlvc Fire. New York, June 16. ? A large portion of the village of Carysville, Genessee county, was burned last night. Loss, two hundred thousand dollars. FYXAN<'IAfj AND COXSEKl'IAL. Richmond, June 16, 1?66. RICHMOND TOBACCO EXCHANGE. There were thirteen hogsheads opened on Saturday. Sixteen hogsheads and two boxes were offered. The boxes sold : 1 at 896, and 1 at $51. Ten hogsheads were taken in. Six were sold as follows : 1 at $16, 1 at $16.50, 2 at $5.10, and 2 at $5.Gt>. This market enjoyed its usual quiet today ; but business men sought the bulletins of the newspapers and the telegraph offices frequently, the foreign news and the evidence of financial agitation in New York exciting a good deal of interest. Gold here was regulated by the rapid advance in New York. NEW YORK. The news by the City of Paris, with dates to the 5th, from London, liad a great effect on the New York market Saturday. Gobi rose at once more than eleven per cent.: from 147 J8' on Friday to 149, tg. Thi news tliat war is inevitable was the chiel cause of ihe advance, as there seems to be no great agitation of a financial character in London, and only one failure, which, it was announced, would result in no loss to creditors. It is probable that American securities | came back a little freely; but we conjecture that the apprehended effects of war had a good deal to do with the excitement on Saturday in Wall street. We see no reason to hope for peace; but we antici. pate that as soon as war ii begun, jteople i will settle down to it ; and so far from injury flowiug from it to this nation, it will f probably be benefited, and receive a new ! stimulant to prosperity. This will cer- 1 tainly be the case if the Uuited States, bonds have the credit in Europe which we have been led to believe they have. In that case people will seek them as an investment preferable to the bonds of the belligerent governments.
