To gives the statement that in Tho matter of general Sickles the process of Federal. Court in North Carolina., to reviews to so be construction status and concludes As follows 1 All process of the Federal courts Are in the name of the president of the United states because Tho mandates of the court Call him to action As they do All to submission and he must execute them As Laws of it Sanctity with the whole Power of the nation if necessary. Is your excellency in a state of collision with the National judiciary if rot the whole executive Power is vested in you by organic Law and can be divested by nothing but a change of the state organic Law. During your incumbency it must follow that the collision of authority which is the subject Hereof is the Mere Misdemeanour of a contumacious and unfaithful executive agent. Bui Tho great responsibility which appears to me to arise on such an occasion where the physical Power of the offender is 8reat, is this that for the sole executive to suffer the judiciary to to overthrown in a Case would be overthrown himself and therefore i am solemnly impressed with the belief that unless the president promptly represses Contumacy thus disclosed to him he will be exposed to the just imputation of a culpable insensibility to the dignity and Paramount Sanc tit of the National department of contempt of Law indulged speedily grasps at the heart strings of Public order so teaches history.

Tho mount Cunis Tunnel. An. Official inspect amp a of the Tunnel through mount Cenis was made by the French Imperial and the italian Royal commissioners on the 24th and 25th of july when completed this work will be 12,220 metres in length equal to seven and a half Miles and 235 Yards. The excavations made from the commencement of the work in 1857 to the Date of inspection Are 7,109 metres. The excavations Are made from both sides and Ever since the commencement the Progress made on the French Side has been slower than that on the italian. A on the 30th of june the latter had Only to execute 1754 metres or about one mile and a Quot tenth to accomplish its half while on tlip., French there remains nearly two Miles and a tenth. If the Tunnel could be worked at the rate of three metres per Day the perforation could be accomplished in three years and three weeks but As not Moro than two metres per Day will be done it will require four years and thirty one weeks. Tho Tunnel will to lined with Stone quarried in the Vicinity of the Entrance and at Tho time of inspection Tho excavations were 1500 metres in Advance of the lining. Thus far the work has Cost it 11,000 francs per metre for excavation and lining but this rate will be increased As the work progresses. There will be twelve Miles of railway on Tho French Side to connect the Tunnel with st. Michel the present terminus of the railway system of France and this is through an exceedingly difficult because mountainous country. On Tho italian Side Twenty two and a half Miles of railway equally As difficult will be required to connect the Tunnel with Barde Eclie in the Vicinity of Susa. The time allowed for the completion of these two connections is four years and a half. The length of the railway via the Tunnel from st. Michel to Susa will forty two Miles or six Miles half Shorter than that now nearly finished on the outside of mount cents pass,.and which it is expected will to opened by september., it will not be possible for a Trian to go through the Tunnel in less than from thirty eight to forty minutes going South but going North the time will be from thirty to thirty two minutes the Grade being less. The outside line has a Concession for working Only until Tho Tunnel line is completed but As passengers will doubtless even then prefer the outside to the inside route the privileges May be extended. In that Case the enormous Cost of building the Tunnel amounting perhaps to $25,000,000 or $30,000,000�?will be almost thrown away.

On Tho evening of the 9th ult., the new postal treaty with the United states reducing Tho rates of postage Between this country and great Britain was. Submitted to the House of lords. A a fic neral Secl tics. It would seem that Sickles Doe Saioc. Feel disposed to recognize Tho fact that to has Superior officer. He abrogates to himself the right to Sot aside the authority of him who is made his commander in chief by Tho Constitution of Tho United states. In spite of Tho instructions of general Grant emanating from the president directing him not to interfere with the process of the United states courts he persists in his Contumacy and has again directed his subordinates at Wilmington colonel Frank to prevent the execution of Tho process of the court. Perhaps this is no Moro than was to to looked for. A Man Juho would undertake. To give his will Moro than the Force of a legislative enact meet As in the Case of order no. 10, and who has so Little respect for Thoj highest civil tribunal in Tho land As to disregard its authority May be expected to condemn the orders of Liis Superior. It is about Timo that general Sickles was made to understand that though he has lost a leg in Tho War for Tho Union to is not the autocrat of Tho Carolines and that though a commanding general to must still respect the a authority of the supremo judicature of the country and of his commander in chief. Military orders May to invaluable in time of War but in Timo of peace they must be subordinate to Tho courts of Justice and though the president is commander in chief he is so by virtue of the fact that he is Clinef magistrate of Tho nation and must hold the sword subject tif Tho sacred Mii Jesty of the intelligencer. General Tho anticipated removal of general Howard has Given Rise to various rumours concerning his administration of the affairs of Tho freedmen a Bureau the. Latest and most prominent of which was published in an evening paper yesterday to tbs effect that part of Tho Purchase Motiey of the Howard University estate was taken from the funds accruing from the unclaimed Bounty Aryl Back pay of coloured soldiers from Virginia and North Carolina. This As Well As the state non that he had made a Largo amount of Money by the Purchase of his estate is utterly unfounded in fact. The facts Aro simply As follows some time Sinco a fund was started by subscription from parties at the North to establish a University for Tho Benefit of the freedmen. A Board of trustees was duly or a Gaui Zed of which general Howard was made president. The estate in question was purchased and a Large share of it not being required for the purpose intended. Was offered for Sale. In order to facilitate Tho disposal of this surplus general Howard was induced to Purchase a few lots which to acquired on precisely Tho same terms As any other purchaser. Our contemporary Lias doubtless been imposed upon by the parties from whom its statements were derived and All statements calculated to damage general Howard should at this time to received wit i great caution. The. Reason is obvious. There Aro reasons of policy which have determined the president to remove general Howard. He is an obstacle to the presidents plan of reconstruction. But it would scarcely be prudent to allege this is Tho cause for the removal of so populai1 an officer and in order to diminish Tho odium of Tho measure it will be necessary to prepare the Public mind by undermining his reputation a favorite plan of attack with the supporters of a a my policy a but Ono so much used of late that the Public Are becoming familiar with it and its efficiency is thus happily chronicle. It. Salmon p. philae Elijhia inquirer publishes the following extract of a letter from chief Justice Chase in reply to the lies now in circulation against him the article in the world of new York is in an excellent spirit nud not far from Correct. But i done to want to be represented As particularly poor or particularly disinterested i think i am Worth How about one Hundred thousand dollars i should at any rate to quite willing to take that sum in 5-20s, and make a Clear conveyance of All i have in the world to anybody who will pay my debts. I would willingly to Worth a great Deal More if i knew of an honest Way to get Worth More. All that the people Are interested in knowing is that i Haven to a cent which of right belongs to them. I did no to serve them to make Money out of them but to save Money for them and i really feel that Tho rascals who Are slandering to ought to to. Der bounced and this mean attempt to injure me in the Public esteem exposed. It is much More important to Tho people than it is to me that those who have served them faithfully shall be fully and generously sustained a otherwise Rasca Lity will boat a Premium and those who Are trying to Malco them suspect me iii. Run their arms to the shoulders i their Money bags. Now and Norfolk Day Boot is rejoicing Over the fact that the Price of Bakers bread has just been reduced in that City from eight to six cents per loaf. It remarks the loaves furnished Are nearly As Tegeti its the anti Bellum five cent loaf and it is a matter of Public congratulation that Tho staff of life has come Down so near to old prices. Apropos of this grateful change we Aro reminded of the War prices in Richmond then i we paid two dollars a loaf which was served through Tho key Hole. Quot Tho diminutive size was in some respects an inconvenience it is a True but it was so convenient to he Baker came along Early in Tho morning and without disturbing the family or without loss. Of time consequent upon arousing Tho sleeping inmates pitched his loaves through the key Hole and thus parsed rapidly from House to House serving his customers without Torii. Bio to any one. This however was the Only recommendation that Tho War style possessed. Co operation in years ago some of Tho workingmen of Charlestown mass., started a cd operative store in a Humble Way with a capital of eight Hundred dollars. This has been increased to seven thousand five Hundred dollars while dividends Havo Boon paid to the amount of Over eight thousand dollars. Recently it was voted to increase the capital Stock five thousand Dol a Lars and to establish a Branch store. In two weeks six Hundred and fifty shares of five Hundred dollars each were taken up nearly All by the old stockholders. The Success of this Enterprise is another proof of Tho advantages of co operation. A dangerous counterfeit five on the a ional currency has appeared at detroit.,
