on yesterday saw Gen. Blair, have now an

DEPARTURE OF GEN. F. P. BLAIR.
A MAGNIFICENT OVATION.
Successful Impromptu Affair.
The announcement yesterday of the
presence ot General F. P. Blair, next Vice
President, in our city, aroused the entire
Democracy to the necessity of exhlbitlng
to the distinguished soldier their admira
atlon for his hefoie deeds on the battle Held
and noble defense of the Union since the
war, as well as for the high position to
which he Is soon to be elected. The affair
ot course, was an impromptu one, General
Blair having arrived hereon Sunday even
ing at 5 o'clock, and designing to leave on
the noon train yesterday. There was no
time for a verjr elaborate display, but the
vast crowd which gathered at the west
front ot the State House testified in their
presence their anxiety to see the hero they
are so shortly to honor still lurther.
About ten o'clock a large - crowd
gathered in front of the Neil House, where
Gen. Blair was stopping, and at about the
same hour the gun squad of the White
Boys in Blue, with their little peice, opened
out in the State House square, making the
city ring with thunders for Seymour and
Blair. : As the roar of the gun was heard
la the remotest part of the city, the De
mocracy came in crowds to tbe State House.
A detat hment of the White Boys in Blue,
as an escort of honor, with banners flying,
and led by Hemmersbach's band, marched
up High street and created considerable
enthusiasm as they marched into the State
House square. -. .
Gen. Blair, escorted by Hon.E. F. Bing
ham, Chairman State Executive Commit
tee, John G Thompson, Chairman County
Executive Committee, Col. I. H. Marrow,
Commanding White Boys in Blue, Dr.
Trevittand other citizens, appeared on the
steps of the State House and was received
with the cheers of the multitude.
The General's speech was received with
lusty shouts, and he was conducted to a
barouche wating at the Neil House, from
where, accompanied by a large concourse
of citizens, he was escorted by the White
Boys in Blue to the depot.
At the depot he was compelled again to
speak a few words to the vast crowd there.
He playfully excused himself from any .
extended remarks, and introduced General
Joe Geiger, who made a most effective ten
minutes'" speech. With songs irom the
White Boys in Blue Glee Club, and greet
ings and band shakings, the time pissed
nntii the train arrived which carried the
next Vice President from our city, follow
ed by the huzzas and good wishes of the
First -Ohio Cavalry -Re-Union. The
surviving members of the First Ohio Cav
alry hold their first re-UDion In this city
city to-day. for the purpose of reviving old
associations and friendships and forming
an association which shall annually hereaf
ter meet at such point as may be designated.
This regiment was organized during the
latter part of 1861. and was mustered into
the service on the 6tb day oi October, 1861,
under command of Col. Owen P.Ransom,
and was the nucleus of that host of cavalry
which, under the. leadership of Stanley,
Crook, Mitchell, McCook, Kllpatrick, Gar-
rard,Long,Minty and Wilson achieved such
triumphs for the country and fame for
themselves. Col. Minor Milliken was its
second Colonel. He was killed at Stone
River. B. B. Eggleston succeeded to the
command, and was, we believe, mustered
out with the regiment. A braver set of
men never crossed sabres with the foe.
Upon their colors are inscribed the battles
of Corinth, Decatur, Triune, Stone River,
Tullahoma, Trenton, Ga., Chickamauga,
Washington, Tenn., Paint Rock, Cleveland,
Conrtland, Ala., Kenesaw, Patterson, Jones
Valley, Ebenezer Church, Selma, Mont
gomeiry,Macon and a hundred engagements
of lesser note. In its career it had met and
whipped the commands of Roddy, Mor
gan, Wharton and Forest, tbe best cavalry
men of the Confederate service. It was
mustered out and discharged in this city
on the 2Sth day of Sept. 1865. We welcome
the brave ' boys of the First calalry to our
city to-day. May the occasion that calls
them together prove a pleasant one, and
may the survivors long live and often meet
to "fight their battles o'er again in song
The Card from a "White Boy in Blde."
In reply to a card published in the Jour
nal of yesterday, signed by a man who
calls himself a White Bay in Blue, we have
but this to say in reply: The man's name
never was put on the rolls of the active
members of tbe organization, because he
was so enfeebled by disease contracted in
the service as to be unfit for active duty.
He attended two meetings, and at his re
quest Col". Marrow procured transportation
tor him to the Soldiers' Home at Dayton.
On his arrival there he found he could not
obtain admission without first renouncing
kls supposed connection with all Demo-'
cratic organizations, and while at Dayton,
in order to be admitted to .tbe Home, he
wrote the note published in the Journal, un
der the dictation of those in charge at the
Home. He was merely tolerated by the
members ot the White boys in Blue, be
cause of his lnfirmltles,and was never solic
ited to enlist with them and was never mus
tered in. Left to himself, common gratitude
would have compelled him not to snap at
the hand from which he had received only
kindness because be was a disabled soldier.
The facts here set forth will be verified un
der oath if need be. By the publication of
tbe letter, the Journal has showu to the
world the mean practices prevailing at the
Soldiers' Home, In Dayton, where a man
will not be admitted unless be votes to suit
those in authority.

SALEM, MASS., Oct. 5.
The anti-Butler Convention was well at
tended and enthusiastic. A. A. Abbott,
of Peabody, was President,-and in his
opening speech paid his respects to Gen.
Butler as follows : '
When a candidate for public office so tor
gets the decencies of life as to call honest '
men traitors, it was time that the truth is
told. The opposition to General Butler is
not baked entirely on his previous political
opinions, but upon the following grounds,
which the speaker read : -
Because he is self-willed, arrogant,
headstrong, domineering,of violent tem
per and bitter hatred, intractable, implaca
ble, Inconciliatory. His great governing
passion seems to be either to rule or to
ruin ; a friend if you submit, an enemy u
you resist. He is persisting, unyielding,
bold, bent upon his own way at all haz
ards, artful, adroit: in private life not with
out generous qualities, but in public life .
Knowing no scruples; ot great anilities; .
not troubled with modest; devoid ot
moral sensibilities; of keen wit, but abus
ive and violent in speech and diction, with ,
his faculties all sharpened and acute. Such,
he said, was the man in whom the Repub
lican leaders all over the country do not
confide. Such was the man in whom they,
as independent electors ot the Fifth Dis
trict, would not and could not con ad e.
Mr. Abbott's remarks were received with .
Mr. Dana, in accepting the nomination
for Congress, spoke at considerable length, -reviewing
the position assumed by General
Butler on the financial question, and stig
matizing him as the Ishmael of the Repub
lican party. It is claimed by Butler that
he is the regular candidate, and therefore
should be elected. The sneaker thought
this did not follow. The great contests of
liberty have been fouzht. not bv the rezu-
lars, but by tbe volunteers and the mili
tia, and : with them, in these
contest, be (Dana) cast his lot Great ap-
piause.j tie continued with some criticism
upon the caucus management, which he-
declared the weakest point in our political
system, aud said that this in connection
with tbe right party discipline of the
Democratic party, which General Butler
now proposes to engraft upon the Republi
can organization, was the reason of that de
gradation or the Democratic party which
General Butler so much deplores.
