WASHINGTON, August 2-10 P. M.
Full retorna from the North Carolina elec?
tions have not yet been received here, bul the
best authorities on both sides agree that the
State bas gon ; Democratic by between 6000 J
and 10,000 majority for Governor; that the
Legislature ls nearly two-thirds Democratic,
and that six D?mocratie Congressmen are
elected. The result creates a decided sensa?
tion here, and rumors that Dawes, Hooper,
Burlington, Forney, Kelley and other promi?
nent Republicans will soon follow the example
set by Sumner and Banks, make the political
situation as viewed from the Grant standpoint
anything but agreeable.
A number of the most Intelligent colored
men here are openly joining the Liberal Re?
publicans, and the stampede from the Radi?
cal ranks threaten to overwhelm the Northern
Democracy with a host ol new con vert B to the
laltb. The Radical managers, who believed
their organization to be irresistible, are utter?
ly dismayed at the Budden demoralization
that threatens their very existence as a party.
They no longer attempt to deny that the
Greeley movement ls a grand popular up?
rising for peace. PALMETTO.

WASHINGTON, August 2-11.30 P. M.
The dispatches from North Carolina still
continue to be somewhat confused and .contra?
dictory. Settle in a telegram to the postmas?

dications at this hour, from the most trust
. worthy accounts, are that Merri mon Is elected
governor by abont 10,000 majority, and that
the Liberals have eleoted seven out of the
eight Congressmen. A dispatch irom Greens?

Careful and Trustworthy Statements.
[SPECIAL TELEGRAMS TO CHE NEWS.]
RALEIGH, N. C., August 2.
The returns come In slow. Some forty
counties have been heard irom, with Conser?
vative gains ahead of Republican gains, thus
lar. The rem ai Ding co un tien are Conserva?
tive, and will doubtless give an increased
Democratic majority. It is conceded that
Merrimdn has been elected by from 4000 to
8000 majority. The returns from the west are
most cheering, gains having been obtained
In almost every county. Rogers, the Con?
servative candidate for Congress, In
the Fourth District, has been defeated
by Smith, Republican, by some four hundred
votes. Smith ran ahead of his ticket nearly
Ave hundred votes. We have carried the
Third, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Ninth Con?
gressional Districts. The Republicans the First
and Second. The Cobb District ls doubtful.
The Legislature will be largely Conservative.
The Era, the Radical organ here, this evening
conceded the State as having gone Conserva?
tive. The Republicans generally acknow?
ledge defeat, although some of the office?
holders still affect to hopo. With all
the1* lights before us, we consider it
simply Impossible for tho Radicals to
have carried the State, as, ia the ?remaining
counties to hear irom they will have to ever
come a majority of some six thousand. The
. Conservatives, are jubilant, but the most in?
tense excitement ls still manifested. No
demonstrations have been made as yet, as
every-one desires to be certain ol success; but
you may expect to hear a tremendous shout
from the Old North Slate as soon as the re?
turns shall be definitely known. S.
CHARLOTTE, August 2.
The election ol Judge Merri mon, the Con?
servative candidate tor governor, and the en?
tire State ticket, ls now assured beyond a
doubts The only question now is as to the
size ol the majority, and this cannot be iess
than five thousand. Treasurer Jenkins, ol
the Radical party, was in the city to-day, and
gives up the election. Sam Phillips, a promi
iaent Radical of Raleigh, also concedes the
total defeat ol his parly. Prominent Radicals
ol Charlotte and other parts ol the Slate have,
since the election, declared for Greeley, and a
Liberal .victory In November by twenty thou?
sand majority ls now certain. Many colored
Totes were changed by Sumner's letter.
The Latest Returns.
CHABLOTTE, August 2-Noon.
A dispatch just received from Hon. D. M.
Barringer- chairman of tho State central ex?
ecutive committee, says: "Twenty-seven
representative counties have been heard from,
which give a Conservative gain on Sbipp's
vote ol two thousand and twenty-seven. The
Radical gain, In their strongest strongholds,
so far, has only been four hundred and eighty
five. The Conservatives are certain ol six
out vof the eight Congressmen, and probably
seven. The Legislature ls Democratic by a
two-thirds majority on Joint ballot. The Stale
goes Conservative by eight thousand majority
certain, and lt may reach twelve thousand."
Several prominent Caldwell (Administration)
Republicans have this morning declared for
Greeley, among whom ls Colonel William R.
Myers. Colonel Myers Is one of the most pro
minent citizens of North Carolina. He has
always been a Union man. In ante-bellum
days he was an old Une Whig, then a Douglas
Democrat, and since the war has been a
paunch Republican. He ls among the wealth?
iest citizens of the State, and will wield an j
immense Inflnence and carry a verj large vote
RALEIGH. August 2-1 P. M.
The Republicans here concede tbe State 1
the Liberals. The only question remaining is
the extent o? the Liberal majority. This in
sures the election of a Liberal United States
senator In the place of John Pool. The elec?
tion was perfectly quiet and orderly through?
out, the Slate. The contest in the Fourth Dis?
trict is doubtful, with the chances In favor of
Rogers (Liberal.) The First District is; al BO in
doubt, but lt is probable that seven Liberal
Congressmen are elected.
RALEIGH, August 2-6 P. M,
Returns come in slowly, though It ls consid?
ered that Merrlmon is elected by about 8000
majority. The contest lu the Fourth Congres
slonal District ls very close, with about equal
chances of success for the opposing candi?
Leach, Ashe, Vance, Waddell and Rob?
bins, Democratic Congressional candidates,
are certainly elected. The Legislature will
have forty Liberal majority on Joint ballot.
WILMINGTON, August 2,
Liberal gains are reported in Carteret and
Rockingham Counties. The Republicans gain
In Caswell County. We are sure of six out of
eight Congressmen. Settle ls probably beaten
for Congress. In Lenoire County Merrlmon
gains sixty-two votes. There ls now no reason?
able doubt that Merrlmon Is elected by a de?
The News In New York.
NEW YORK, August 2-10 P. M.
Dispatches received at the Liberal Republi?
can and Democratic headquarters' here to-day
confirm the news of the Democratic gains In
North Carollnr,, and estimate Merrlmon's ma?
jority at 10,000. The gain of 300 in Rocking?
ham County secures the election of Leach
over Settle in the Fifth District.
The Herald to day says that after all lt is
possible that the negro counties may give the
State to the Republicans. The Tribune thinks
the returns don't warrant any positive state?
ment as to the result; that gains In the cities
may prove deceptive, being caused by the
return of negroes to their country places of
registry. The Times' special claims that the
State has gone Republican. The dispatches
Indicate a very quiet election everywhere.
The returns were awaited with much anxiety
here, and the headquarters ol the different
political parties were crowded.
Mr. Greeley goes to Rhode Island on Satur?
day, where he will remain a few days.

THE PRIZE RING
The Coming Mace and O'Baldwin Fight
A Washington letter o? the 28th Instant
sass: The sporting men here, and many
others also, are considerably Interested over
the expected ''mill" which will take place In
Virginia two weeks from Tuesday next be?
tween the Irish gi aa t, Ned O'Baldwlo, and Jem
Mace, the English pugilist. The contest am s
have been io training for some lime, and an
Interesting conflict i* expected, the former at
Atlantic City, New Jersey, and the latter in
New York State. Many nave serious doubts
that there will be a "meeting in the twenty
four feet square," which the members of tbe
prize ring uave denominated "the ring," being
of the opinion that It will prove a fiasco, the
excursion money being toe only funds that
will change hands. The laney are unusually
reticent about the exact location of the fight,
but lt ls generally supposed that lt will take
place near Point Lookout, Maryland, near the
place where previous encounters have taken
place. Johnny Clarke, well-known here, was
deputized about a month since by the backers
ol the men to select a place, but lt was re?
spectfully declined. Since then, however, a
spot has been determined upon and steamers
chartered to carry the excursionists from
Baltimore and Washington. Thousands ol
New York roughs will be In attendance, a
railroad excursion being arranged to carry
them to Frederickeburg, Va., and from there
tn ey are lo be carried In steamers to the battle?
ground. If the fight does take place, a kind
of nationality being attached to lt. money in
large quantities will undoubtedly change
hands. The utmost secrecy ls displayed, BO
as to prevent the authorities of Virginia from
learning of the whereabouts of tbe meeting
or any particular* in reference to it. Tbe
tickets for the "excursion" are now for sale In
this city, in the hands of careful men, wno can
tell who to sell and wno not to Bell them. The
fight ls for two thousand dollars and the
championship of the world.

A LEAF FROM HISTORY.
MORE DISCLOSURES FROM THE
t $76,000 CONFEDERATE ARCHIVES.
Thc Niagara Peace Negotiations and
Horace Greeley's .Connection with
Tiltia-An Interesting Letter from a
The Northern papers publish the following
letter found among the "rebel archives"
bought lrom Pickett by the Grant Govern?
ment for $76,000:
Hon. J. P. Benjamin, Secretary of State, C.
SIR-I desire to submit to you, as the head
of the department to which I am directly re?
sponsible, and under whose control they
should, if possible, have been conducted, the
history of certain transactions In which I
was engaged whilst in Canada, but which
did not fall within the scope of the duties as?
signed me by the President, I will not here
repeat the reasons which have been commu?
nicated In previous reports for protracting
my stay in the British Provinces. During
the Interval of leisure which this delay
afforded me I was DM?fclcaliy associated by
my friends, Messrs. C ! ayah tl Thompson, wi tn
themselves lu the execution of their more
comprehensive and delicate mission. In antici?
pation of the arrival of these gentlemen at
Niagara, but, as I believe, without their pre?
vious knowledge or sanction, Mr. George N.
Sanders, then residing In that part of Canada,
Invited a number ot citizens of the United
States, supposed to be hostile to the existing
administration, to visit the Falls and Inter?
change opinions upon the condition of the
country and the great question ol peace with
prominent Confederate gentlemen who were
expected to spend a portion ot the summer at
that place. Such conferences being entirely
legitimate under (he construction which)
Messrs. Clay and Thompson (no doubt ver/
properly) placed upon their powers and
duties, I had no hesitation In meeting the pub?
lic men who came to ihe Falls and expressed
a detlre for my society.
That point being the most conveelent and
eligible for the transaction ol my own business.
I remained there during the whole period of
my stay In Canada, and thus had opportuni?
ties o? more frequent and extensive Inter?
course with these gentlemen than either of
my Irlends, one o? whom (HT. Clay) made his
headquarters at St. Catherine's, the other
(Mr. Thompson) at Toronto. Besides a crowd
ot less distinguished persons, I saw during the
course of the summer (in sumo Instances re?
peatedly) Governor Hunt, ot New York;
Messrs. Leigh Richmond and Benjamin
Wood, of the same State, Mr. Buckalow, Judge
Black and Mr. Van Dyke, ot Pennsylvania;
McLaln, of the Cincinnati Enquirer; Weller,
of California; Judge Bul.itt, of Kentucky, and
Colonel Waiker, of Indiana. We received
mes?ages trom other gentlemen, snch as
Voorbees, o? Indiana, and Pendleton, of Ohio.
Before Mr. Clay and myself bad reached
Niagara, Mr Thompson had seen Mr. Vailan
dlgham. The Impression which had been
made upon my mind by what I had learned
from these gentlemen, and lrom many other
sources of information, including interviews
with leading members ot " the Order ol the
Sons ot Liberty, as to the temper ol the Dem?
ocratic party, and especially the people o?
the Northwest, and the prospect o? any action
in that section favorable to our cause, I shall
sta'e in another part o? this report.
Certain editorials which appeared In the New
York Tribune early In June, connected with
Intimations from our friends lu New York, In?
duced a hope (which with me has ripened into
an abiding conviction) that the able editor ot'
that influential journal entertained opinions
upon the subject ol peace much more reason?
able and moderate than those of the Repub?
lican party in general. For this reason nei?
ther Mr. Clay nor myself, (Mr. Thompson be?
ing In Toronto, and tatting no part in these
conferences, except with one or two gentle?
men who visited bim In that city,) discour?
aged Mr. handers lrom sending such an invi?
tation through a third porann m Ur. Orazio?,
as he bad sent to others to come to the Fails
and see U9. Mr. Sanders soon reported that
this suggestion was most kindly received by
Mr. Greeley, bul that he expressed a pre?
ference for Washington as a place of meet
log, and deelred to knew lt we were willing
to go lhere. It did not occur to us, as
we bad no doubt from what had subsequently
transpired was ihe fact, that Mr. Greeley sup?
posed we held any quasi aiplomatlc position.
We had never written a line or uttered a
word to justify such an Inference. The anony?
mous publications attributing to us conversa?
tions in which various terms ol peace and re?
construction were suggested bad no shadow
of foundation In truth. This Impression ot
Mr. Greeley moBt probably aroB? from the
ignorance, folly, cr knavery of Colorado
dewitt, who was the medium ol communica?
tion between Mr. Bandera and hltnaelt. Noth?
ing could be further lrom the truth than the
statement of our ingenious friend. Dr.
Mackey, in his letter to the London Times,
that we laid a trap to catch Mr. Lincoln. Had we
suspected any delusion as to our true character,
or the Informa! nature of the proposed confer?
ence, it would have been prompt ly dispelled.
In considering the propriety of accepting the
suggestion ot Mr. Greeley to visit Washington
we most deeply regretted that lt was Impossi?
ble to submit the question lo our own govern?
ment for its decision.
There seemed to us, however, upon reflec?
tion, no doubt ns to the line of conduct which
would advance the Interests ot our country.
Tne good io be accomplished by such a visit
would, In our judgment, have greatly over?
balanced any mischief that could result from
lr. The publicity of our presence In the
United States, with the sanction of Its gov?
ernment, must have Imparted a mighty Influ?
ence to the jiuse ol peace by the tree discus?
sion it would have authorized and Invited.
The opportunities of general and unre?
strained intercourse might have been Im?
proved so as io secure an iasight into the
temper and policy of the administration, the
spirit of the people anti the resources of tue
country. Under this conviction, we author?
ized Mr. Sanders to signify to Mr. Greeley our
willingness to proceed lo Washington upon
the tender of an absolute and uncon?
ditional safe-conduct from ihe President of
the United Slates. When Mr. Sanders submit?
ted the note to us, which appears first In the
printed correspondence, we found that he
had, moat unexpectedly, associated his name
with our own in the proposed visit. There
were serious objections to this association,
but believing Mr. Sanders to be a sincere and
zealous friend ot' the Confederacy, thinking
that on thia occasion his peculiar talents
might render him uselul in acquiring the in?
formation we deelred, and feeliug that If the
safe conduct was tendered hla wlBbes on this
subject would be eniltled to some considera?
tion, we permitted ihe note to be Bent with?
It is, however, Incumbent upon me to add
that, with all proper respect lor Mr. Sanders,
he was at no time taken into my confidence,
nor I believe Into that of Mr. Clay. Ia a lew
days we received a letter lrom Mr. Greeley
advising us ol his arrival at the International
Hotel, on the American side of the Falls, and
tendering us a safe conduct to Washington,
and his own escort, upon the hypothesis that
we were duly accredited from Richmond as
the bearers of propositions looking to the
establishment of peace, and desire??-**''visit
Washington in the fulfilment of ou- mission.
Mr. Cluy and myself were so deeply impress?
ed with the grave responsibility which would
attach to any action we might take on i his
communication, that we telegraphed to Colo?
nel Thompson to meet us at St. Catherine's
and unlt? In our deliberations. Whilst I can
only report the reasoning which led my own
mind to its conclusions, yet 1 may ada that the
response which was made to Greeley received
the approbation of Mr. Thompson aa well as of
Mr. Clay and myself. Our mo6t obvious course
waB to have Informed Mr. Greeley that he
labored under a strange delusion, both as to
our character and our wishes, and that we
could only meet him as private citizens and
tor an Informal Interchange of opinion. This
course, however, as I thought, would have
given io ihe party now in power in the United
States the means o? defending itself against the
charge which was used with most effect by its
Neither the present nor any other Republi?
can administration can secure the same degree
o? public support In the prosecution of the
wor on a policy of confiscation and emancipa?
tion as on a policy which looks simply to the
restoration ot the Union. Mr. Lincoln was
reproached with an unwillingness to make
peace on any terms short ol the subjugation
of the States of this Confederacy and the utter
overthrow ol their, peculiar [social system,
and a consequent In disposition to ascertain the
sentiments o? the Southern people, for fear
they might proteas a readlnesl to submit to
the authority of the United States on more
reasonable conditions. AUbo'^h no proposi?
tion for peace which did not concede our
absolute Independence would have been en?
tertained for a moment, it did Dot seem to be
wise to give our enemies the moral and mate?
rial benefit to be derived froma position they
were not honestly entitled to occupy
Had we returned the anBier which has
been suggested, the friends of President Lin?
coln could have appealed to the letter ol Mr
Greeley as a proof of his wlUngnsss to open
negotiations on the most liberal basis. That
letter wholly abandoned the attitude which
the Government of the United States had
maintained since the secession of South Caro?
lina, and to which, according to the declara?
tion of Mr. 8eward In his recent speech at
Auburn, lt has returned of "no negotiations
with rebels Jn arms." Ix expressed a readi?
ness to open negotiations anq attempt to set?
tle through diplomacy the iuestlons which
had been so long In vain submitted to the ar?
bitrament of war. It did not even announce
that the restoration of the Union was an in?
dispensable condition of peate, but proffered
a free and untrammelled conference. Had
tbe correspondence closed at that point, it
must have added strength to the administra?
tion of Mr. Lincoln, and this Increased Its
capacity to carry on the ww. Within our
own borders it would have nourished the de?
lusive and dangerous hope cf a compromise
with our enemy on terms consistent witb
liberty and sell-respect. A renewed pressure
would have been brought to bear on the Presi?
dent to send commissioners to Washington
with the view of opening negotiations at the
hazard of fresh Indignities to ihe Confed?
In iramlng our reply to the letter of Mr.
Greeley, we endeavored to shape lt so as to
compel such new developments from Mr. Lin?
coln as would disclose the trae policy ol his
administration, or such an adherence to the
position assumed In that letter as would ena?
ble our government to act upon it with safety.
This purpose was fully accomplished In call?
ing foi th the celebrated document addressed
"To whom IL may concern." No paper proba?
bly ever produced so great a' revolution of
public sentiment in tbe same ?pace of time.
Although a gross delusion as to the extent of
their recent military successes has Induced a
reaction and secured the re-election of Mr. Lin?
e?lo, lt IB destined to exercise an enduring
lull nen ce for good. It has permanently weak?
ened and distracted the war par y of the
North, and there is much reason to hope that
before many months Intervene lt will wholly
deprive lt of Democratic support. However
this may be, lt bas united and animated our
own people more than any polit leal action of
our adversaries since the commencement of
It has been suggested that the effect of this
correspondence, oy renderlog probable the
defeat ol Mr. Lincoln at the poll?, WAB un?
favorable in the Northwest by repressing a
trowing tendency to revolution In that quar?
ter. This was, no doubt, to some extent, Its
temporary effect; but lt has worked no In?
jury to our cause. The revolutionary ele
ment bas been hitherto too frcble to be em?
ployed In ot'- service with any advantage.
Belo re this Ul respon dence took place our
sanguine lt lends in that region nacl fixed
upon various periods of revolutionary out?
break, but they were deferred at their own
Instance irom time to time, as ihe conviction
gradually dawned upon their own minds of
me extent to which they had exaggerated
their strength. From all tbe developments
which have since been made, I am satisfied
that no explosion could have taken place
previous to the election which would not
have resulted In permanent Injury to our
cause. The Northwest ls not now, and
without the systematic and possibly long
continued application of the agencies which
control tbe popular mind may never be, ripe
for revolution. But lt is fermenting with
the passions cut of which revolution have
been created. Io Illinois, Indiana and possi?
bly Ohio, a majority of the population are hos?
tile to the present ai minis, ration.
The recent alum lon fbHaUk^d an -A*??- J
K? ut? wuuurj, fur, Wim a large body of the
peace p?rty, McClellan was held lu as much J
odium as Lincoln himself. The bitterness be?
tween these hostile ?actions Is Intense. The ;
one has received irom the other every outrage
which the strong can penetrate on tbe weak.
It would be a fatal mistake, in my opinion, to
abandon all effort to separate this section from
the United States, because no results have yet
been achieved commensurate with our expec?
tations. The hope of closing tbe war by nego?
tiation bas been extinguished. Our resources
are diminishing more rapidly, for obvious
reasons, than those of our enemy. To keep
alive such a degree ot apprehension as will
lead to the concentration of large bodies ol
troops to repress Insurrection within tbeir own
limits will, of Itself, be an important diversion
In our favor. We should employ money and
talent without stint to give this brooding re?

CATERPILLARS IN OEOROIA.
[Prom the Macon Telegraph.]
We received letters irom Wilkinson and
Crawford yesterday, dated the 29th ultimo,
which Bay thal the cotton caterpillar are in
those counties and doing mischief. A letter
from Mr. L. R Parker says: "The caterpillar
ls playing smoke with the cotton here. In
company wii h several farmers I visited the
plantation of Mr. J. T. Parker,' and I call lils
cotton crop ruined. Mr. Smith told me that
he heard from Baldwin County yesterday, and
the caterpillar M In the cotton crop ot' that
county." Mr. James I. Morris, of Hickory
Grove, Crawford County, also writes us on
the same day: "I saw the caterpillar yester?
day In the crop of Mr. John R. Reeves, near
this place. I counted as many as twenty
worms on one stalk. They have just made
their appearance In this neighborhood for the
first time since 1868, and as they come so
early in the season may serve ns as badly as
they did then, and in that case, farewell col?
ton with us " Of tbe general condition of the
crops lu lils region, Mr. Morris writes that
they are suffering for rain ugaln. Early cot?
ton, especially ou gray landB, looks well as to
the weed, but there is scarcely any fruit on lt.
Late corn and peas promise well, but the early
corn will not produce more than hall a crop.
THE "PRECOGNIZED" PRELATES.
[From the Ballimore Sun.]
A dispatch from Rome on Monday stated
that "the Pope had precognized the Arch?
bishop ol' Ballimore and the Bishop of Rich?
mond." From this it would appear that the
Pontiff has made known to his consistory or
council the names of the future ArchblshoD of
Baltimore and the Bishop ol Richmond,'Ya.
Since the fact of .precognition has been an?
nounced, it ls somewhat remarkable that the
names ot' the appointees were not gleaned also,
but ut tbe same lime there appears to be but
little doubt In the minds ot the clergy but that
the appointments have been made. If no ob?
jection was made to the names by any mem?
ber of the consistory, the appointees, whoever

KOTES OF AK INTERVIEW WITH SEN?

i The Washington correspondent of the New
York Tribune says that on Tuesday Senator
Sumner's residence, always a place of popular
resort, was thronged wi iii people, black and
white, who visited him to learn the truth ol
the statement that he was about publicly and
finally to declare himself In favor of Greeley.
The writer says:
There have been so many stories to this
effect lately that popular Incredulity needed
assurances from the senator's own Hps that
there was any more foundation for this latter
rumor than its scores of predecessors. To all
such visitors aud Inquirers the Massachusetts
senator had but one reply to make. He said
that he had never balled or hesitated in his
sympathies In the present campaign, but only
as to the manner and propriety of giving
them expression. The letter which be was
about to make public was the result ol a care?
ful Invest Ration Into all the Issues entering
into the present campaign, and the sentiments
there put forth were the honest convictions
of his own conscience. In conversation with
the Tribune's corresi ondent he said that Ra
man could tell ihe pressure brought to bear
upon him lrom all quarters since the Ballimore
Convention to influence his political action.
In the first place, he said, were all those
members of the Grant administration wlih
whom he was still on the most friendly
terms. They came to him with their
specious plans and arguments, urging him
for the sake of consistency lo stand
by the nominee of the regular Republican
party, "as ll," observed the senator, with a
smile, "there could be any consistency
involved In my preferring to support a man
who had always been a Republican like Gree?
ley to one who had never voted the Republi?
can ticket, as Grant once boasted." There
would swoop down ou him a delegatlan of bis
old political friends, associates and neighbors
from Massachusetts, who, with hands up?
raised, would beseech bim not to abandon
tbe old Republican organization In which he
had won so many triumphs. And again he
would be pestered wlih a horde of sharp
negro politicians and carpet bageers, who
would fight the war all over again, and dis
cnaa the very issues which the Baltimore Con?
vention decided were buried forever." "There
bas been nothing like it," said the senator "in
my experience before; but I have kept steadi?
ly la view the principles involved In the pres?
ent struggle, and have not allowed myself to
be 8wa> ed by other Influences than my clear
convictions of my duty to my country and to
lie said that he had correspondence from
ihe principal men In all parts of the country,
and felt assured that mauy more Republicans
of equal prominence with himself, who had not
beeu outspoken, were In sympathy wlih ihe
Greeley movement and would lake au early
occasion to declare themselves lo that effect.
Aa to hts colored wardp, he says be now feels
no more solicitude on that score. He says he
has had assurances from the best Democrats
In the country-men high In reputation and
honor- men whose words are as good as their
bonds-men who went Into secession consci?
entious')-, and who fought gallantly, and who
resisted the new order of things so long as
resistance availed anything-that the negroes
should fare quite as well at ihe hands ot the
Democrat s as the Republicans, and that "equal
rights lof all men" is as much the watchword
tor either party as lt is a part of the respective
"If my letter, which ls given to the public
lu-OTj, aura -irut sufficiently define inv posi?
tion, and show wnere i oinuu, wuuuueu mr.
Sumner, "a reply which I sent lo Lieutenant
Governor Plncnback, of Louisiana, this morn?
ing, may be regarded lu tba light of a de?
cided committal. Plnchback telegraphed to
know whether I was going to support Greeley.
I replied Instantly aa follows: 'My watchword
for the pending campaign ls the unity ol the
Republic, with equal rights for all, and recon?
ciliation as represented by Horace Greeley.'"
It Is Intimated ibat Plnchback himself, who
has been claimed as a strong Grant man, only
desired this avowal In order to place himself
under the Greeley banner. Being a colored
man himself, Plnchback's defection will have
an Important Influence on the colored element
lo his State. A rumor ls afloat on the streets
to-night that General Banks ls out In a letter
for Greeley In a Boston paper.
THE PRESS ON SUMNER'S LETTER.
Comments of the Liberal, the Inde?
pendent and the Grant Journals.
The letter of Senator Sumner lo the colored
people, for lt ls Intended tor ihem all, has had
the effect logically anticipated ot causing
much gratification among the friends of Mr.
Greeley, and awakening the ridicule, not un?
mixed with apprehension, ol the fi lends of
The New York Tribune, referring to the let?
ter, says that there have been lew utterances
during thia Presidential contest which have
so much significance and weight as the letter
of Senator Sumner to the colored men, and
that "the whole argument of tho letter is ad?
dressed to the colored people who sought the
advice and opinion of the senator. To ihem
his council is emphatic, kindly ana intelligent.
It ls difficult to see how these generous words
can be received with other than hearty con?
currence and consent. The colored fellow?
ed lzens who addressed Mr. Sumner acknowl?
edged the Tight which he had earned io give
them a watchword in the present Jnuci ure of
affairs. To them the time ls critical; for ihem,
pointing to the Liberal candidates and thu
platform so heartily adopted by ihe Democrat?
ic party, he utters this noble phrase: Tue
unity of ihe Republic, and the equal rights of
all, with reconciliation.' By thal sign we con?
The Herald says that the letter is a very
valuable aid to the Greeley cause, and that it
shows "that we are involved In ihe uncer?
tainties of a Presidential campaign whlcti is
without precedent lo American history."
Heretofore we have had some data lo guide
us In eslimuting the probable results of a
Presidential struggle, but now the conditions
ol the two conlenolng parties are essentially
changed and the result cannot easily be fore?
The World says that the letter or Mr. Sum?
ner is very able and cogent, and cannot fall
to make a deep Impression. His eulogy of
Mr. Greeley 1B perhaps overstrained; but his
arraignment ot General Grant ls as strictly
iruthlul as lt is terrible and scathing. Grant's
Incapacity, nepotism, absenteeism, defiance
of law, violation ot tne constitution, submis?
sion to military rings, alliance with corrupt
combinations, quarrelsome temper, contempt,
of official decencies, and assumptions of arbi?
trary power, are set forth by Mr. Sumner
with a loree and fidelity of statement which
ought to make this faithless President rtand
aghast at the hideousness ot his own portrait.
But whatever may bu the effect on the culprit,
lt cannot Jail to convince his judges who will
pass sentence on him In November.
The Times, Intensely administration, says
the whole letter is absnrd, and does not fairly

The Washington Republican says that Mr.
Sumner bas read himself out of the Republi?

to Hay ti and San Domingo, Hi at be knows
nothing about the subject he talks of, and has
been guilty of the grossest misrepresentation.
The Chronicle confesses to a "feeling o?
mortification, as a friend and admirer ol Mr.
Sumner, at the utter heartlessness with which
he alms a blow at the party that did him honor
when his name was covered with obloquy Joy

Mr. Greeley's purpose to abandon L?e recap-,

nooDS waa annoonced last week. -He held trie
last "Chappaqua matinee, " as the - reporters
call lr, on last Saxa rd ay, and, as usual, the
Times' spy was there, eneakiDg around'for
; material to throw ridicule on the host and' nTs
guests. The report duly appeared in Sunday's
Times and was quite In keeping; wita, the very
contemptible course of the Grant ofga'nunder
its present management. Mr. Greeters clothes
were described and abased,, the "teed" was
complained ot, and the invited guests were
depioted as "loafers at a free lunch." all this
from a.person who went and thrust himself
upon the private party uninvited. Such dis?

The rea nions, which have been. kept a p for
j many years,'are- over, and Mr. Greeley has
gone Into retirement .In Brooklyn, . He Is
working like a beaver en an encyclopedia
which hts friend Alvin Johnson is hurrying up
for the press. He stays at the house of Mr.
Charles Storre, on the Heights, and sees very -
few visitors. While he is thus emplojing the
leisure permitted to him by hts candidacy In -
useful literary labor, his competitor (In of?
fice) ls on the wing to the St. Lawrence Blver
and the Thousand Islands where he la going
to have a week's fishing and ehooilng.. Tile

when he arris>s by the New York train, and :
be ls to feast with bis man, Conkling, who
lives there. He will not get back permanent?
ly to bu s i ness in Wasnlngton. before the . first
ol October, which is Just the time that Horace
Greeley bas an appointment'to deliver th? an?
nual address before the Queen's County Agri?
cultural Society. Comments are superfluous
Let me advert a moment to a matter rather
outside the scope ol New York correspond?
ence, but which ls of consequence enough to
be noticed at once wherever the pen ls em?
ployed. The Hon. James Lyons, ot" Rich?
mond, Va., bas Just prluted a letter giving his
reasons for hatiug Mr. Greeley, which ts likely
to be copied into the Southern papers, and tf
not exposed, calculated to inflame tbs feelings
or Southern while men against the Liberal
candidate for President Mr. Lyons quotes a -
mof-t atrocious passage imputing lufitmous
lives to the ladles ot the South and credits li
to Mr. Greeley. The Tribune notices the
charge this morning, bm treats it with ridi?
cule. Mr Whitelaw Held underrates the o an
ferous character of this accusation: .Ic should
e sternly branded as a falsehood before' it
gets currency in mer'South, tor the Uadloals
and their allies, like Mr. Lyons, will take care
to spread lt widely. The passage never ap?
peared In the Tribune, nor Jell from Mr. Gree?
ley 's Dps. It was primed In a pamphlet en?
titled "Miscegenation," a work which the Tri?
bune pointedly condemned when lt was pub?
I happen to know something about this
-famous literary squib. It was gotten up dnr- :
lng the closing yeaiB of the war by a parcel
bf wags, In a Democrat lo newspaper office In .
this div. It was an absurdly ingenious argu?
ment to prove that the amalgaurntlon of tho
tom In this country, lt would produce the
grandest race of beings the world ever ssw.
A word was coined-"miscegenation"-to re?
present this order ot things, and the new and
Improved beings were christened "miecegene."
To the surprise of the originators ot the bur?
lesque, a great many Abollilonlsis took lt as
serious, and some ot ihem actually endorsed
Hand Its doctrines. It bad a large sale, and,
where the Joke was not seen, was vigorously
denounced. As I said, the Tribune was one
ol' tbe foremost in condemning ihe work.
v It will be a part of the Radical campaign
tootles to give currency to pretended quota?
tions from the old files of the Tribune offen?
sive to Southerners and Democrats, and our
people would do well generally to question
their genuineness. It ls hardly poealuie that
so earnest a man as Mr, Greeley, alter thirty
! years labor on the editorial columns of "(he
Tribune, should not have said some hard things,
and some unjust things too, of bis political
opponents, but it should be remembered also
tnat though, theoretically, be waa responsible,
as editor, tor all that appeared there, ;.; was
physically Impossible for ulm to have written
everything, or even to have seen everything,
tor he bas been in the habit ol going away
from New York every few weeks for years tip
lecture or make speeches East and West.
I have noted, lrom time to lime, for the In?
terest of your readers, the progress of the
?realest of our local enterprises-toe bridge
?liding across the East Blver, to unite New
York sud Brooklyn, Taro massive stone tc??*
I ors are being erected .on the banks of the riv?
er, opposite to each other, and from these the
bridge of wire will be suspended, with no In?
tervening supports in the water. ' The Brook?
lyn tower bas now been completed to a height
ot one hundred a ad forty-six feet above the
river, and after ten feet more bf masonry' ts
laid lt will eave reached the road levei. On
the top of this three smaller towers will rise
to an additional height , of one . hundred and
twenty-two feet. Tuey will be used to hold
the supporting cables, and the entire height,
Itherefore, of the structure above : water level
will be two hundred and seventy-right, teat.
It ls expected that this work will be complet?
ed by next spring. In the meantime, the New
York tower Is beginning to show itself. IC
ls DOW seven leet above the water level, and
will be fl dished by next winter. .Then
the great work of laying the bridge ana
building the anchor piers will begin and ts ex?
pected io occupy ai lea?t four years more, so
that lt will be close on to the year 1679 before > -
people will be passing over the ships m^rja
oetween the two cities. Toe distance oetween
1 ibo two river towers will' be sixteen hundred
' feet, but the entire length ot the bridge, from
Brooklyn Heights to Chatham Square will be
j three thousand lour hundred ami eighty feet,
or two-thirds of a mlle. The road bed ot. the
bridge wi J be divided Into five passages, the
two outer lor vehicle* going east auo- west,
the two within these for hoi se cars, and the
