Richmond Dispatch. SATURDAY JULY 7, 1866. Shall Underwood Try Mr. Davis? Of all the men that have ever lived upon the face of the earth, the Radicals in the present Congress seem to be the most unscrupulous in the prosecution of their purposes. It has for some time been apparent that Chief Justice Chase is as anxious to avoid sitting upon the trial of Mr. Davis as Underwood is to engage in that agreeable occupation. After endeavoring in every imaginable way to shirk his duty, and finding that the President is determined that he shall perform it, Mr. Chase has had the good fortune to secure the assistance of his party friends in Congress. We learn from the New York Herald that the House Judiciary Committee have decided by a vote of five to four to report a bill at the earliest practicable moment for the reorganization of the courts of the United States. The first section provides for the abolition of the Circuit Courts of the United States on September 1, 1866, and gives to the District Courts and District Judges original jurisdiction of all actions at law and suits in equity commenced on or after that date to the same extent in all respects as now possessed by the Circuit Courts and the Circuit Judges for said districts respectively. The second section provides for the removal of all actions and prosecutions from the Circuit to the District Courts. In other words, the second section provides that the trial of Mr.Davis may take place before Judge Underwood sitting alone ! As the law now stands, he cannot be tried in the absence of the Chief Justice, the District Court not having jurisdiction in treason cases. We shall await further developments in the matter with much interest.

" Murder as a Political Art." Under this caption the Cincinnati Gazette, a Radical sheet, publishes a long article designed to show that HARRISON, TAYLOR, and LINCOLN, were all murdered at the instigation of the politicians of the South, and that the same class made an unsuccessful attempt upon the life of Mr. BUCHANAN. We suppose there are old grannies in Cincinnati who will believe this story, and hold up their hands in holy horror at the supposed wickedness of our people. But that any man having three grains of common sense should believe it, is incredible. The editor of the Gazette is either a knave or a fanatical fool. Either he gives currency to this base slander for political purposes, well knowing it to be false in every particular, or else he is totally unfit for the position he holds. No one in the South will argue such a question. We feel nothing but pity for the folly which could credit such stories, and nothing but contempt for the vile slanderers who originnte them. The War in Europe-The Situation in Germany. The first movements have now been made in the war between Austria and her Germanic allies on the one side, and Prussia and Italy on the other; and hostilities may be said to have actually commenced. When the Prussian forces entered Holstein, compelling the Austrians to retreat before them, they consolidated Prussian power in the north. The Elbe Duchies were firmly bound to Austria ; Hamburg, Lubeck, and Bremen were isolated from any support of the confederation ; and the two Mecklenburgs were left no alternative but a close alliance or an actual incorporation with Prussia. In the west and south Prussia has acted with equal vigor, and with as great apparent success. As soon as the Diet voted the mobilization of the Federal army, Prussia made known her determination to consider all the States that vote in favor of that proposition as her enemies unless they would, without delay, declare a strict neutrality and refuse to arm. None of the Powers acceded to this peremptory demand, and on the 16th ultimo the Prussian army entered Hanover, Hesse, and Saxony. This was a most important and | politic step on the part of Prussia. Between the eastern section of Prussia and Westphalia and the Rhenish provinces, her western dependencies, lie the kingdom of Hanover and Electoral and Ducal Hesse, which stretch north and southf rom the North sea to near Frankfort-oun-the-Maine. The adhesion of these Powers to the Diet broke the continuity of the Prussian line, isolated her possessions on the Rhine, exposed her to attack from the armies of the Confederation on the lower Elbe, aud threatened to cut her off from Holstein, and thus nullify all the benefits she had obtained from its occupation. Prussia moved without giving the Diet time for resistance, and as a result of two days' campaign, has sole possession and control of Northern Germany from the Belgian to the Russian frontier, presenting un unbroken line to her adversaries as far south as her armies have advanced. While, then, the occupation of Hanover and the Hesses was essentially defensive in its character, the march on Dresden, the other great Prussian advance, is principally offensive. It is defensive so far as it prevents the Austrians from holding Dresden and Leipsic, and thence threatening Magdeburg and Berlin on the one side, aud Breslau aud Posen on the other; but it was doubtless chiefly intended to give a base from which to operate against the Austrian line from Karlsbad to Pardubitz, in Bohemia. The Austrian cantonments are said to extend along the Bohemian and Silesian frontier, reaching up to Cracow, on the southern frontier of Poland, the left. wing of General Benedek's army resting upon the Elbe. Should he be defeated in that position, his left might be driven in upon his center and right, and the whole shattered army be forced back into Moravia and Austrian Silesia, breaking his communication with Bavaria, and compelling him to leave an open road into the heart of Austria. A Prussian diversion in Silesia or Austrian Poland might also be at tempted, to prevent reinforcements being sent to the relief of Benedek's left, in Bohemia. The advantages of the Austrian position must not, however, be overlooked. From Coblentz, on the Rhine, through Saxony and Silesia to Oderberg, the Prussian line extends across the whole of Germany. The line would be an admirable one if it could be maintained, but it is indubitably too long for either offensive or defensive

purposes. A powerful Federal army around Frankfort already threatens the Prussian right, and the main Austrian army, massed in a comparatively amall area, can be readily directed en masse against any portion of the extended Prussian line. The Prussians cannot well advance unless they move their whole line, for they dare not uncover their flanks or give their enemies an opportunity, by a rapid flank movement, of endangering their communications and cutting them off from their supplies. A defeat to the Prussians, on their present line, would in all probability be decisive, as they would not be able to collect together a sufficient force to hold the victors in check, while of Austria it must be remembered that her history proves that although she may be defeated again and again, she never ceases to offer a stubborn and determined resistance. In one respect the policy of the Austrian commander is admirable. His movements and intentions are wrapt in entire secrecy, and his plans will only be known when they are carried into operation. The arrival of the next steamer will doubtless bring particulars of new movements, and perhaps of a general engagement ; and until then we can but speculate upon contingencies, and hope that whichever Power is in the right may for once be successful in war. A Word Well Put In. - the Senate, Thursday, while the bill for reannexing Alexandria to the District of Columbia was under consideration, Mr. Davis, of Kentucky, made a little speech. He said he was convinced that the State of West Virginia had no legal or constitutional existence, but as he thought the matter was one entirely for the courts, he should not vote to repeal the act admitting it as a State. Whereupon the bill was passed over for that day. This was a hard hit at Senator Wade, who had made an argument to prove that the retrocession of Alexandria to Virginia was an unconstitutional proceeding, but whose conscientious scruples had never been aroused by the palpably unconstitutional act recognizing West Virginia as a State. The First Convention.- The Winchester papers contain a call for a convention, to be held in the Alexandria district on the 27th of July, to appoint delegates to the Philadelphia Convention. The Petersburg papers are among the most highly valued on our list of exchanges when they reach us in time. A word, &c.

The Press on the National Conventlon. From the New York News, July 5. The National Union Convention.We publish in another column the address of the Democratic members of Congress " to the people of the United States," endorsing the call for the assembling of a National Convention at Philadelphia on the 14th of August. The style and temper of this address are admirable. It ignores the divisions which have heretofore existed amongst thoso who are opposed to the destructive principles and measures of the Radicals, and prepares the way for the earnest and hearty cooperation of all those who desire the perpetuation of the Union and the well-being of the States and of the people of this great country. This is in the true Democratic spirit, and as such we accept it, and give our voice to the proposed movement. From the New York World, July 5. It is clear, therefore, despite the representations of the Times, that this is a movement which all conservative men may safely encourage. In the countenance given it by the signers of the Democratic Address we have a guarantee of its honesty and good faith - a needed assurance that it is not the trick of crafty Republicans to rejuvenate the Republican party : and promote its perpetuity. In no view, therefore, can its success be a detriment to the Union cause. If, as seems probable, it shall win sufficient popular favor to render it a valuable ally, the Democratic party will cordially greet it as a sister organization, and be ready to confer with it, in a liberal spirit, as to the best means of restoring the Union - the great paramount object common to both. From Forney's Chronicle, July 6. The coalition will not embrace the loyalists of the South. They are to become pariahs and outcasts under the President's policy, while the rebels, whose first choice for President would be Robert E. Lee, their second Jefferson Davis, and their third Andrew Johnson, are to he accepted by the "National Union Convention " coalition as the true representatives of the South. Richmond or Charleston would be a much better place to hold a Johnson convention than Philadelphia. Another Bureau Order. General Howard is out in another order. Of course he has heard of more "out-: rages" upon his colored brethren - this time in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and " other late slave States." Why not name all of them ? He says: "This circular [in regard to freedmen's courts, we suppose,] has never been countermanded or modified, except with regard to the courts where the military tribunals have been suspended, or replaced by the civil and local courts in accordance with specific orders. And even in districts where this change has taken place, the officer or agent must still be the friend of the freedmen or refugee, to aid him in the prosecution of his case." But not of any white man. That would be against orders. State Confiscation Laws in West Virginia. - Judge Hall held a special term of the Circuit Court of Morgan county on the 3d of July to dispose of a large number of confiscation cases presented under the State laws of the 16th of November, 1863. The law involved in these cases had been elaborately argued at the May term last by Hon. Benjamin Stanton, of Ohio, for the State, and by the Hon. Charles J. Faulkner on behalf of the defendants. Mr. Faulkner took the ground that the State law was unconstitutional in assuming to punish offences solely coguizable in the courts of the United States, and besides, that the act was a war measure, incapable, by its own provisions, of being carried into execution in a period of peace. A consent order was entered, by which the cases were dismissed at the costs of the defendants. Fire In New York. - The Herald of yesterday says: "About three o'clock this morning a fire burst from the New Haven steamboat freight depot at Peck slip, and in a short time the whole of the buildings were in a sheet of flame. When we went to press they were nearly all consumed, and the shipping adjoining were in great danger. A man in Nottingham, N. H., has invented an alarm to be applied to banks, jails, and other places that ought to be made secure. The gratings and connections of the doors and windows are made hollow and filled with condensed air, which, by its escape on breaking or sawing the rod, must give the alarm without fail.

SPECIAL NOTICE. A CARD TO THE PUBLIC. Richmong, July 4, 1866. There appears in the Richmond Examiner of today an exhibit of telegrams and communications from E. A. Pollard, over the signature of H. R. Pollard, which reads thus: A Card. - In explanation why my brother Mr. E. A. Pollard has not appeared here, and in justice to him, the following telegrams received from him are published at the advice and counsel of his friends : . Telegram No. 1. New York, June 17, 1866. H. R. Pollard, Examiner office, Richmond, Va.: The last pages of "Lost Cause" are passing through the press - requires my constant attention - impossible to leave. If James or any of his family want anything of me, they can find me at 654 Broadway. EDWARD A. POLLARD. Telegram No. 2. New York, June 28, 1866. H. Rives Pollard, Examiner: If James wants redress, it is his part to seek me. You can publish my telegraph communication and address: also last October letter inviting meeting in Baltimore. Can't leave my urgent business to hunt cowards: nevertheless, if he will insure satisfaction, I will be present where and when he may designate through his friend, which should be to equal convenience. E. A. POLLARD, 654 Broadway, N. Y. [This telegram was sent to Mr. Sam James on last Friday morning. ] Telegram No. 3. New York, July 3, 1866. H. R. Pollard: I have heard nothing of James. The whole thing is all farce and fiasco. E. A. POLLARD, No. 654 Broadway. In a private letter, received last evening, Mr. E. A. Pollard further writes: " As to avoiding any member of the James family, I have only to say that nearly EIGHT MONTHS ago, November 18th, 1865, I wrote as follows, from the city of New York, to James : ***** I do not wish to avoid any consequences or to escape any responsibility; and with this view I shall remain in Baltimore (at the house of Dr. _____ , corner of ___ and ___ streets) a sufficient number of days to learn and meet the issue, whatever it may be. " No one of the James family responded to the invitation of an interview. In the eight months subsequent, I have been in New York, Norfolk, Petersburg, and Richmond, without any of the Jameses having applied for an interview, by person or by letter. As to Sam James's cowardly fancy that I could not be found in New York, it is too ridiculous to notice. You can send him my address and telegrams, which are at his service. It would be useless for me to come to Richmond, where the police are on the alert for demonstrations. It could only make a harmless affair for James, and a bloodless scandal for myself. This explanation I shall consider for the present sufficient to give the lie, blunt and direct, to his vapours.'' With this I leave the public to judge who is "dodging" in the matter. H. RIVES POLLARD The quotation from the letter of E. A. Pollard to " James " (as above) was written to me, of which the following is a copy : New York, November 13, 1865. William James, Esq., Collector of Internal Revenue, Richmond, Va.: Sir, - I owe you a debt of candor. I have TRIED to do my duty to my wife; but I have been overpowered by my feelings for Mrs. ___, which being no longer able to suppress, disguise, or diminish, I am bound to acknowledge. Recollect that I have done her, too, a deep wrong, and stood between a reconciliation of her with her husband and children; and she has no protector, no family, no friends. Sir, I can no longer control the feelings which torture my heart, and, terrible as is the pain of seeking a divorce from my wife, it is best for her honor and happiness that the step on her part should be taken. I know you will break the news to her as kindly as possible ; the pain she may suffer is terrible agony to me - but better this than the unhappiness of a forced and ill-starred union. I am willing that all the penalty and shame of the step be concentrated on me. I do not wish to take it under any circumstances of concealment, or to avoid any consequences, or to escape any responsibility; and with this view I shall remain in Baltimore (at the house of Dr. Moore, corner of Hill and Hanover streets,) a sufficient number of days to learn and to meet the issue, whatever it may be. All efforts at reconciliation, or influences to that end, are now utterly in vain. It is impossible that I can ever live with my wife again. Respectfully, [Signed] EDWARD A. P'OLLARD. If Pollard construes the quotation from the above letter as a challenge to "James," as seems to be indicated, I, to whom that letter was addressed, aam the person challenged, and not my son Samuel R. James. This is an explanation, if one is necessary, "why" no one of the "James" family ever responded to the invitation of an interview ; of which the candid intelligence of the public will Judge. [Jy 7 - 1t*] WILLIAM JAMES. CARD OF THANKS. - Having nearly recovered from my late injuries received upon the Richmond and Danville railroad, 1 avail myself of the earliest opportunity, and have selected this medium, of returning my heartfelt thanks to the numerous friends who so cheerfully, generously, and nobly rendered me assistance during my affliction. To the superintendent and officers of the road who supplied me, not only with all the articles necessary for my comfort, but all the luxuries which the market afforded. To Doctors Ball, Newman, Hancock, Winston, Archer, and Pulliam, who were all attention. To the citizens around Coalfield (especially Messrs. Edward Cunliffe, Robert Marks, Barnes, and General R. L. Walker,) who did not stop to inquire who or what I was, but came promptly and cheerfully forward to relieve the sufferings of a fellow-being. To Mrs. Ball, Archer, Scott, Barnes, Taylor, and Brummall; Misses Ball, Powers, Porter, Cunliffe, Hancock, Brummall, and Hughes, who cheered me by their presence and lavished upon me the kindest and most constant attention, and who I feel are ministering angels to me under a kind Providence in my affliction. I feel at great loss for words to express the gratitude of my heart. In fact, words are inadquate; but I can assure you I sincerely appreciate the kindness; and while I may look upon it as one of the saddest events of my life, the recollection of the kind friends, who so nobly aided me will always be associated with the event, and will in a great measure alleviate the sadness.

A HINT TO BOTH SEXES - HOW TO GAIN AND RETAIN AFFECTION. - It has frequently been suggested that PLANTATION BITTERS are, in another form, the " elixir of love'' of the ancient. That they do much to quiet "family jars" and reconcile fretful wives to cross husbands we verily believe. When domestic quiet is restored and connubial felicity reigns supreme, " How great the charm, how sweet the bliss That finds expression in a kiss." A free and proper use of PLANTATION BITTERS will inspire the souls of both sexes with pure and high-toned sentiments of affection and a capacity for rare and exquisite enjoyment in each other's society. Remember, there is no place like home, and no passion like love - and nothing to link the two together, and you to both, like the great family blessing, PLANTATION BITTERS, jy 7 NOTICE. - In Chesterfield County Court, May 11, 1866: Ordered, That R.

Example.?Suppose a policy of ten thousand dollars, with additions amounting t< fire thousand dollars more, should become payable by reason of the death of the person insured, the Company, in lieu of the payment of fifteen thousand dollars in one sum, would ba able togire (assuming interest as realized In the past) an annuity for t>*n years of orer two thousand dollars per annum, or for twenty years an annuity of orer one thousand three hundced dollars per annum. This form of annuity will remove the anxiety which may exist in the minds of some policy-hold-ers lest the future provision they have made for their families should be ineffectual or transitory in its duration, either through unsafe investments, unwise expenditure, or other uncertainties incidental to contingent trusts. It is not only free from the ordinary dangers of investment, but its punctual and full pavraent is secured by the LARGE AND SOLID CASH RESOURCES and good faith <>f tills institution, which thus, to a certain extent, becomes the GUARDIAN or TRUSTEE of the survivors. Hence the provision may he considered, humanly speaking, beyond any adverse contingency. Ail such deferred payments or annuities will share equitably in the profits or dividends of the Company. This Company also issues SURVIVORSHIP ANNUITIES, which provide for survivors during the whole period of life, and DEFERRED ANNUITIES, by which Individuals may provide for themselves in advanced age.
