Coleman Yellott (search for this): article 22
Messrs. Thos. J. McKay and Coleman Yellott, two of the Maryland Commissioners, arrived in this city yesterday, and are stopping at the Exchange Hotel.
Herald, shows a delightful state of harmony in the New York editorial camp: Massa Greeley in a Rage.--The Hon. Massa Greeley, though a small beer philanthropist, is a monstrous big liar when the truth is against him. We say big liar, because the qualification of this charge in dainty phraseology with Greeley would be like "casting pearls before swine." In holding up before the world the identity of his views for weeks and months on the question of secession, and the views of Rhett and Yancey, we have pinned our abolition contemporary to the wall. He wriggles and twists like an ugly worm on a bodkin; but there are philosophers who, even in this position, would stick to the truth. Not so with Philosopher Greeley. He flies into a rage, against the Herald, the Herald editor and the Herald office, he hangs a string of falsehoods together like a string of onions upon a wisp of straw. Having changed from a legal advocate of secession into a military defender of the Union, Massa Gre

Arrival of President Davis. --The public have been for several days past advised of the expected arrival of his Excellency, Hon. Jefferson Davis, President and Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the Confederate States of America. He made his advert into Richmond at 25 minutes past 7 o'clock yesterday morning, having arrived from Petersburg in an extra train, accompanied by Gov. Letcher and the members of the Advisory Council, members of the City Council, Mayor Mayo, Thos. H. Wynne, Esq., of the House of Delegates, and a number of other gentlemen, who had repaired to Petersburg to greet the distinguished representatives of Southern rights. Hon. Lewis T. Wigfall and lady, of Texas, Col. Jos. R. Davis, brother of the President, Col. Northorp, C. S. A., were among the President's suite. On the arrival of the cars at the depot in this city, the air resounded with the most deafening cheers, oft repeated, for Davis and the Southern Confederacy, from several thousand willing m
g been felt as a serious inconvenience, and a drawback on the profitable employment of convict labor. The recent addition to the aggregate of prisoners, caused by the return of the slave transports and free negroes that had been hired on the railroads, has caused the prison buildings to be more crowded than was either agreeable to the Superintendent or consonant with the profitable employment of the force under his command. We never could see the justice of the complaints raised against Ex-Gov. Wise for turning out of the Penitentiary some twenty or thirty of the unfortunate creatures during his four years of service as Chief Executive. We thought he did right, and would have been equally right, if not more so, if he had let out a few more than he did. Unless the Penitentiary buildings are enlarged at no distant day, (of which at present there seems not to be the slightest chance) the requirements of the occasion will be such as to demand a full and free use of the Executive preroga
ist that murdered Col. Ellsworth was James Jackson, keeper of the Marshall House. The name of the Zouave that shot Jackson is Brownell. He first blew his brains out with his rifle, and then bayonetted him. The body of Col. Ellsworth was brought over in charge of six Zouaves. The wildest grief is exhibited by the members of the regiment. Before wrapping the secession flag around his body Ellsworth had trampled it under foot. I called at the White House this morning, with Senator Wilson, of Massachusetts, to see the President on a pressing matter of public business, and as we entered the library we remarked the President standing before a window, looking out across the Potomac, running at foot of Presidential grounds. He did not move till we approached very closely, when he turned round abruptly, and advanced towards us, extending his hand: "Excuse me," he said, "but I cannot talk." We supposed that his voice had probably given way from some cause or other, and we were

Old Buckingham forever. --In the Bucking ham Institute Guard there are six Williamses--five sons and one grandson, of the same man. He has done his duty. There are three Levy brothers and three Ayres brothers, all in the same company. Whole families from Buckingham have come to the rescue, and while Buckingham has but 800 militia enrolled, the county will probably furnish 500 volunteers.
James P. Williams (search for this): article 18
Sad accident. --Yesterday afternoon, the little son of Mr. James P. Williams, of this city, aged five years, met with a shocking death. While playing with a little negro, in the kitchen, they obtained possession of a musket, which had been placed there to avoid accident, and by some means one or the other of them produced its discharge. The ball entered the right side, coming out through the back, causing death in about an hour. This melancholy event has not only spread sorrow over the hearts of the immediate family of the little one transferred, but an universal sympathy felt for the parents in this community.--Portsmouth Trans, 28th.
Arrests. --Captain Wilkinson arrested last night and caged a slave named Reuben, owned by Burwell Jones, for walking in the streets with an unlawful weapon. "The kind of weapon will be made known to-day before the Mayor.--Peter Allen, white, was caged for getting drunk, behaving disorderly, and assaulting Robert England in his own house.
