The necesslonof so experienced nutl pow

I)r, (iIieei.ev has nlwnys cherished n ro

too far In thn prognimmu ho now lajs

with which bo proposts to treat all parties
and nil political iiiuvcmcutt, Implies 11 de
sign to stnnd with entire Impartiality or
uven liidtfforeuco toward them, oxprescing
no more si mpatliy with one than with tho

Iloit.un (InEELEV. Ho was not mado to

is no analogy between tho function of 11
uowpl'Vr editor and that of u Judge. A

The public Is also informed in this cart!
that ns a Journalist Dr. Oueei.ky will here

As those nro subjects for which bo has

Itlea of Increased attention to them Is just
now very grntef ill to his lulud : Indeed, It
is rather his custom when ho is beaten in
an election; but we are conlltlent that he

Moth nnturiinud hnbit mnko him n polemic

no important political light will tako place

Dr. Oiilki.i'.v dually goes on to declare
that ho "will never again bo 11 eaiidltlale

bo provoked to tho Indulgence in those
bitter personalities which nro tho recog

Is sincere In both those undertakings; but
lie is tv good a patriot to ndliero Irrevoca

It has been a oommon practice among
tho Httlon In frontlar Htntea to oontraot wht
srs called Indian marriiitfss. Ttist Is, Indian
traders nnd others would select wlm among
tho Inillins, whom thojr would wed according
to tho Indian custom, or otherwise, as tho rue
might be, not always restricting tliciuieltes to
a ilnjle nlfo, Tho question has now been
hrutighl boforo tlio Mlaaourl courts wbothcr the
listieof unli marriages can Inherit prnpcrtjras
legitimate heirs. This Is a question of great In
terest In the West, ns In illisotirl, Arkansas,
Texas, Iowa anil nearly all the Territories tlitie
aro great numbers of persons who are the
offrirlng of such Irtegular marriage. Tlie caie
whli h has opened this novel question of legltl
inurjr Is ono of peculiar Interest. Mr. W I I.I.I AM
Utl.Mss, one of tho Oral aettlors of Kansas City,
and Its limit wealthy citizen at the thao of his
death, some time ago tiled a bachelor, as every
ono upptibcd, leuviiu hl property to his niece,
a Mrs, Tiioost, nho altvrwnrtl alio illeil, leaving
a will in w blrli vtcro bequests for the erection
n f nn opera house, a church, and n seminary,
and for the establishment of a park and other
public Improvements In Kanias City. Mr. (Iti
l.lps, it apprars, In rally life had been on Indian
trailer nnd had contracted an Indian marriage.
Ills half-breed chlldron havo contested the will
of Mrs. Tiioost, on thn ground that they were
tho legal heirs of niLLlss.and the cae has been
tried before a Jury In the Circuit Court, who de
rided In favor of tho Indian heirs, thus setting
aside the will. Of course an appeal was taken
frt m this dorlilon, and the caie will be carried
before tlie Fupreme Court, when the question
will he definitely settled nliothvr a marriage
contracted according to Indian customs con
stitute! inch a marriage as the laws of the
country can take cognlzancs of and enforce as
local and binding In all respects.
Inn ease recently heard before tho S11
prmne Coartof Maine a (lardlucr firm sued the
Western Cnlnn Telegraph Company for IjO
damages resulting from an error In tho trans
mission f a message Tho Srm had sent an
order to Chicago for 10,00) bushels of corn. The
message as delivered reduced the order to 1,1X0
buthels. before the mistake was corrected
corn had adranred ten cents huhrl, and the
firm claimed damages to the amount of tbo In
creased cost of the grain. At the close of the
testimony the Judge Intimated that ho should
Instruct the Jury' that the telegraph nmipany
vans liable fur damages, notwithstanding thn
terms nt the contract set forth hi the printed
blanks provided by the company ; whereupon, by
consent of conn Jul, the cose was withdrawn and
referred back to the lower court for decision
upon qtietliins of law and the assessment of

Chinese soldiers, according to the popu
lar hiss, are a comical set of barbarians armed
Art tb antiquated matchlocks and Impracticable
swords, who gu to battle under tho aliade of
huge umbrellas and depend for suecrss against
an enemy principally on the unearthly sounds
tbey contrive to produce from their lungs and
various Instruments of ear torture, such as tho
rung and similar products of Mongolian Inge
nuity. The truth Is, however, that within tho
past few years (hlna has made wonderful Im
provements In her military affairs, and at the
presunt moment has a fnrcn of at leant MUi)
men arineil with I'.nflHil und lteinlngtnn rifles,
who havo been thoroughly drilled In L11
rupeaji tactics by UumixJi) oOlcers, s.ip
plemeiited by thirty Ueld and mountain
batteries. Armories havo been established
laaeveral of the principal cities fur tho ui.iiiu
fucture of guns, rifles, and ponder, where, un
der foreign superintendence, tho work of tup
plying troops with aims of tho moat Impnveil
models for soiiio time has been actively carried
on. llxteiislve dork yards have alto been con
structed, and China now pnsstniea quite an Im

Kurnpeau skilled mechanics, aro ablo to build
and tit up three steamers a year. Flvo men-of-war
have been launched from thu dock yard at
Shanghai -not Junks, but vessels of European
models, with all the modern Improvements
and a large frigate and two Iron despatch boats
are on the stocks at the same place, where an
Iron sWamer of 1,000 tons Is also about to bu
built. Tho eoaU defences have recently been
remodelled anil rebuilt, and rlOed caution o(
foreign manufacture take the place of the harm
less old smooth-bores of native make which
were formerly depended on to repel Invaders,
These military reforms, how over, appear to have,
been confined to the neighborhood of the prin
cipal poru and I'ekhi. Elsewhere In China, and
especially In thtt northwestern provinces, the
troops are armed and drilled after tho manner
of their forefathers, and are so badly organized
under the management of dishonest and Incom
petent officials that of numerous battailous 10

that there Is nothing la tho Constitution to

The Oreekit have degoneruteil sadly since
thu tlaji of Ani:sil.vus, The people are con

.Mrs. Wlnlerburn'o Concert,
Those who were nt tho Academy of
Music last evening heard a very excellent con
cert. It was given by Mrs. Charlotte V. Winter
burn (late Miss Hatchings), and wo suppose was
Intended to mark the progress that this lady has
of lato made In her art, she having become,
first as pupil and now a teacher, tht ex
ponent of the results of Dr. Streeter's system
for the mechanical formation of tho voice.
Mrs Wlnterbtirnhad the assistance of Theodore
Thomas's orchestra, as well as of Mr. Myron W.
Whitney and llerr Hrnno Walter, n violinist.
The appearance of Mr. Whitney In our concert
rooms Is n matter on which wo may sincerely
congratulate ourselves, There Is no American
bass singer who has hit gifts or acquirements to
an equal degree. He has long been Identified
with the Handel and Haydn Society of llostmi
taking an honored part both lu their concerts
and festivals. In ICugland lately he acquitted
himself greatly to the crcdlCof his country. Ho
has a volco of One quality, and needs only more
fervor to be almost a great artist. There Is loo
much repose In all that ho does.
llerr llenno Waller l an artist entirely new to
our public. He was announced upon the pro
gramme as TlolnUt to the King of Havarla. and
and this was his first appear an 00 In America.
He I quite a young man, and one who lias a One
future before blm In his profession. Ho played
Spohr's concerto In I) minor, nnd exhibited all
the qualities of a violinist possessed of reined
feeling, a correct Intonation, and much repoaa
and dignity of style. Ills execution Is not an
iirtt as that nf some of the older players, and
he Is mora formal and has less spontaneity than
Sarasate for example, being of the classical
order of players, but he Is a man to bo llitcned
to with attention, resect, and pleasure. A
narked feature of this concerto was the part
that the orchestra took In the accompaniment.
Never, wo venture to say, has any orchestra In
the Academy of Music accompanied a roncrrfo
w ith such a fine sympathy of ieellng, such ex
quisite, delicacy of coloring, and, lu tlio piano
passages, with such gentleness and forbcirunee.
Ihe unity of tho players was remarkable, the
bows were drawn as by u single arm, and tho
reeds were blown as by one breath. It Is a su

The election and II ( nlaatrophe.
From tht Albany Argui.
Tliere wero protnonltlons of tlio result of
the political contest very distinct and clear
before the day of election rams, Tlie returns
of Tuesday night did not, therefore, astonish
us. The tide roso higher thin tho limits we
awalgued Jt; but In any event. It was destined to
sweep away the old landmarks of constitutional
government. A majority of a few thousands
more or less, of a few Slates more or less, was
of llttlo Importance, so long aa It was evident
that the (I rant rule would be prolonged. Tho
poworof the Federal (lovanunsul haa become
so great, so far-reaching, and ao absolute, thai
any Adiulnlitrai.li.il wielding It can perpotnato
Its vunlrol over public affairs. The civil war has
accustomed the people to exhibitions of arbitra
ry power at which In former times) they would
have revolted. 'I lie lavish expenditure of the
Government haa built up Immense fortunes In
tho hands of a few men, and mado (he mass of
people suffering and dependent. The animosi
ties growing out of the civil conflict survive It,
and darken the Judgment of men. The spirit
of domination, which exists In all men, finds
f ratification In perking out victims and orush
ng them. Hut above nil tho special Interests
the organized capital In banks and railway
corporations. In factories and protected Indns
trles of all kinds -w hlch the Government special
ly nurtured and furthered during tbe war, have
survived It, nnd demand and receive Hie samn
protection now. They are handed together, and
If Interest mid Inclination did not lesd them to
support the Government, the central power was
ready to make them resllie their subserviency.
The same stale of affairs followed the close of
tho antl-Napoleonlo war In F.tiglaud. The na
tional debt roso annually by lis hundred thou
sand millions. Thero was an Issue of paper
money to rellove the hankers and brokers. '1 he
nobility, oompsratlvely oor In tho last century,
were enriched by offices, pensions, endowments,
and opportunities of Investment and specula
tion, l lio upper class of commoners realUed
untold wealth nnd hotight alliances with the
nobility. The corn laws kept the land owners
In sympathy with the Oovcrnmcnt. The coin
eaters starved. There was a prosperity among
the upper classes greater even than that of our
own now; but nuver was there more suffering
among tho poor, never so many crimes against
property and life. .
The Inequalities of the law and the Injustice
of Oovernment made Imperative the reform
movement. It was bold and honest, ana was
again and again repulsed by tho organized power
of Government, lint It drew the young men to
It. It won, step by aten, wlctorlea ; It conquered
public opinion faster than It did totes ; but at
sat It held control of both. It has governed
Knniand for fortv Tear, with occasional losses
ofKiwer, which were merely temporary. Hut
no measure of reform that It ever auooeeded In
establishing was ever overturned.
Bdch Is to be our history. The tote of Toes
day Is no measure of public opinion. We bam
access to the popular ear and heart. Tlie thin
partition that separates parties will be broken
In the next Impulsive movement of the people.
Our success Is postponed, but only for a brief
time. Napoleon was stronger than Grant, but
how long did It take to sweep him and his co
horts out of power! Tweed wielded aj large
a machinery of corruption ai Grant; yet his
daya are now pasted in asektug escape from
prison. . ., ,
We see nothing In the past to regret, nothing
In the future to fear, "(led Is patient," savs one
of the old saints, "because ho Is eternal." I110
people endure beyond the life of one or many
generations, aud they too can be patient and
wall. What is good will cotue, If w labor faith
fully and fearlessly for It.
From He VUca Courier.
The seatteritiK returns of Tuesday's
election come In from the State and country at
large. Indicating that (Irani Is reelected tothc
Protldency, and that Sew 'iork gives him hpr
electoral vote and chooses John A. DixtoUie
Executive cbalr. .... ,
lu the face of this disheartening result, we
seek the causes which lead us down to defeat.
And Oral of all we must give credit and honor to
tbo Liberal llepubllrans wbo were brave enough
to break the shackles of party discipline, and
earnrat and Jealous enough to fight out the
battle to the hitter end. lntho contests of the
future this class of citizens will stand faithfully
by us. It Is among Democrats that Indlfferonoe
pointing straight to disaster has existed. Uow
many have been seduced from the path of rec
titude and the line of duty by the corruption
fund of the enemy we neither know nor care to
Inquire. The number wbo were victims to old
prejudices appear to have been large. In the
hour of the republic's greate.it peril, men who
should have leen active and alert In overthrow
ing the Washington despotism, halted and hesi
tated or basely surrendered. It lay In the power
nf the nomocracy to redeem tho land from mis
rule, and, stumbling on the block of old preju
dices, It failed In the performance of that duty.
Now what does the futuro hold In ttoro for
us and for our country? It la a crime for a free
man to despair of liberty. Hut If the same spirit
which ho governed the Administration during
the last four years shall continue to control It
If avarice and personal ambition shall hold the
President lu thrall and proscription and cor
ruption shape his policy we shall paas tbrouuh
datk davs before the sunshine of freedom lights
our land ngalu. Wo cannot forget that half a
dozen dangerous measures proposed as Con
gressional enactments were laid over last spring
In de.'ercncc to the popular outcry against tlicm
One of these bills, which Itoscoo Coukllng

For the purpose of diverting the eJleollonof S

ordered to remain, nnd where the ojioral Ions of I
tbo enemy were very active, I ordered, 011 tlie 1
very day of the action of Jogueyos, that Llcut I
Col. Ilellsorto Gravu do Poraltn, with troops
of Holguln nnd Jlgtinnl, should attack the ono- I
toy's encampment at HI Corratlto.aiid that Major
J oak Maria Porta, also with forces of Jlguunl
and ilolgulti, should ftttuCk tho enemy's camp at
Mayor). Iloth attacks wero mado, the llrst on
the night of th nth, without any low on our
side, Although our forces acked and burned nut
only tho vitiligo of F.I Corrollto, but likewise por
tions of the villages of Ban Carina, Ouahlneyon, I
and Cuebltas. Tlio second attack was made 011
tho night nf the loth, without loss to our side.
We killed two of the enemy and took ono prts- !
oner and raptured flvo firearms, five full car
tridge boxes, a considerable quantity of per
cussion cape, a number of machetes, horvos,aml
cuttle ; tobacco, clothing, and other articles, bo

Under dato Mny HI, Col. Fco. Vnrona write
to me that on tho Oth of that month IJeat. M

and that ho returned without loss on tho 1-tli.:
that on the t'th the same Col, Varona engaged '
tho enemy at llio A halo: tln.t on thn Hth he do
stroted the telegraph between Ij Palmllla and

of them and only losing one man. Sergeant Car
menate, who received a sword cut ; and that on
the -Id he again cngagod them at Laa l'arrss,
without any loss on his side. On the 17th,
Lieut. Almagnel, accomoanled by forty men ,
of that line and by part of the forws of Major
Oen. Modesto Diaz, had a severe engagement
with the enomv at Iluena Ventura, In which the
enemy suffered severely, while we had only one)
wounded. On tills occasion the Spaniards left
In our hands many horses, with their accoutre- ,
ments. On the auth this same Lieut. Almagucl
approached close up to Manlabou, captured off
the garrisoned estvto Sunta Harbara seventy
head of cattle, and destroyed considerable quan
tity of growing crops. Major Morales was.
attacked on the Ilith and ISd at Li Ilartola. Thu
only casualty on hli side was ono wounded,

booty. They carried off a great number nt
wounded. Lieut. Joso Martinez del Castillo
and ten soldiers were taken prisoners, and after
atrial by court martial were shut on tbcDmii.
On our side we had twenty casualties, consist

subsequently driven back to their Intrench
insula lhro several times hy ihe gallant ami
daring Col, Maceo. whom I ordered to advance, ,
which ho did with his accustomed Intrepidity.
The enemy left upon tho field sixty dead
bodies. We captured Inside the encampment 1
over thirty prisoners. These were tried by coutt 1
martial and shut. We took ten carbines, over
Iwo hundred head of cattle, about 0110 hundred I
horses, a large quantity of tobacco, some cloth-

On our side we lost four killed, among whom '
were (.'apt. Juan de Mata Koitiiguez. and ton

(in the "th of this same month of July, at
about 10 A.M., tho enemy presented himself In
considerable strength, coming out of Holguln
before these headquarters, which I had Just
established at this place, Iis Pnsos. 1'or wmio
little time shots were exchanged between my
outposts at the village of Tasajoras and again
with the rear of invllno which lay on the llanos
road. Suspecting that the firing last referred to
wns upon our convoy which was retiring by that
road, I hastened there with my whole forco. I
had not been mistaken, and charging upon ti n
enemy, who at thut time held the Hones road,
etobo to Im Vegulta, I forced them after en '
hour's sharp fighting to withdraw toTssaJeras.

The work went on pretty well for soma time at

likely to baffle all attempts to penetrate it. The

hammered nway at It, and at length broke 1
