The To. Parly celob rated in tho nnnals
ot history and heralded in the melodies of
long, occurred in tbe town of Boston ono
hundred years ago to-day. That scene
eventuated in tho union of colonies and
the warof Independence. It was the key
note, of our present grandeur and gloryi
and to ado It Boston what alio she still
professes and strives to bo "tho Hub" of
political progress and the boast of Amor
lea. Then, lor tho first time, the English
lion trembled at tbe scroam of the Amor
lean eagle, whilo the dauntless bird peeked
him In the face. Tho earnest men of that
Iowa dared to contemplate and :1ml
Isnge tht possibilities of a conflict wiib
the British government, and tho remem
brance of their courago and determina
tion continues to be retained in tho minds
and heart of the ions and daughters of
our matchless republic This centennial
of that great tea party will I o colobrated
la nearly all the pnnoipal cities of the
United States by public meetings; and it
will be eelebrated in several million fam
ilial, by appropriate remarks and ploas
ant reflations ovor tables that con
tain everything oxcoptthecupof tea. And
the angel of peace shall hold up her olive
branch, and tho angel of war shall lay
Mid bii sword; and there shall
ba an angelic saluto f the Hps,
in token of tho abundant pros
parity and joy that tbe tea party
ha secured to the spirit of liberty and
republicanism throughout the world.
The bKef limits of this nrticlo do not
admit a detail of ail tbe influences and
cats that conjoined to a focus in the
town of Boston one hundred years ago to
day. Tea wti duty.feo In England; but
tat British Parliament authorized a II
tenia tor and collection of duty upon tea
in America, not only without tho consent,
tat against the solemn protest of Ameri
can!. That body affirmed the right to
tax tbe provinces without their consent
and established an odioua monopoly of
trade to tbe British East India Tea com
company. That company was furnished
a license to export tea to Araorica,
and the duty on thht nrticlo was
atudlously collected. Any tea that cotnw
to America through an unlicensed com
pany wai liable to be sicied and conns
catad by actof Parliament, and an attempt
was mad to force tho colonies into sub
million. The calm and steady historian
record! that every ship owner was fur
bidden to importj.or bring as freight any
Ua from Great Britain, till the act by
whUhltwa taxed should b repealed,
The Amerloan regarded tho duty as un
eonillutional, and io notified the British
Government. Th Boitonlans were
rouied to indignation and wrath, and
-maayof tbein rowed on the peril of thoir
ilftsvthat no tea tubject to a duty should

The engagement warnot" kept, ana tno
people becamo furious as tno twemy uj
vereedltoward their expiration, notcn saw
the danger, and asHoit me coiieciur

till It should ho discharged of the
teas. Tho ctoaranw refusal.
At ten o'clock on Dece'tiiler ICtb, K?,
seven thousand people of Boston and
from the country MJStnbled in tho Old
South Church, demanding -Katcli to ftp-
ply to tho governor for ft pftSSj ami lun
ths tea vessels back to London tbtt very
Apv. Itntch had to scols tho governor
bis' country house at Milton. At a quarter
before fix ho returned with tho report
that tho govornor had refused the pass, as
tbe ships wcro not propsrly clsaroi. In
an Instant k shout was beard ; tlm war-
whoon was re-cchoeJ, 1'ifty men dls
eulied as Indians passcd'lhe door, repaired
to Grinin's wharf.postevi guards where they
pleased, boarded the threo tea-ships that
lay in the harbor, and breaking open tho
threo hundred and forty chests ot tea
omutied their contents into tho bay tak.
ing caro to do no material injury to any
other proporty. They know that n tew
hour dolay would have plocod that ta
under tho protection of the admiral at
tbe castle, and having sworn that the tea
should not bo landd, Ihey performed tho
feat of putting that tea into the water.
Their acts do" not nocl the vin
iticitlon and sanction of our fee
tlo pen. They wero rncn who enred
moro for principle than for safety ot life,
and wo should emulate their glorious ex
ample. Tbo Boston tun-party has boen
hued-all-ovor with tho glamour nnd
brightness of Araorican enterprise and
bravery. Without that party, Boston
would not hato been the hub of the wheel
of colonial victory over tho armies of the
mother country. Brother Jonathan made
John Bull respect him for his talent hnd

Fair liberty, tbo beautiful U&on of re
publican birth, patted tho inlunt nation
on the back, and in two or three yenrr,
tho juvenile had grown so fast that he
could make a declaration of independence
and maintain bis fair instructor.
Let Boston bavo the glory and honor
of the land. Slio is and will remain ''tbo
bub." Thuro tbe greatest of all tca-partios
did occur. In memory whereof, on this
dy, let us abstain from lea.
l'rom the New York Evening Post.
For tho fourth or lifili tirno the charges
of mismanagement of thu j-iuedmuu's
Bureau aru brought ngalnst Gen. O. O.
Howard, tho late commissioner. The con
fidence reposed in Gen. Ilowurd, his ct-
ilcleucy as n soiaiur, ana tno vaguuneas ot
tho charges, bavo heretofore led tho pub
lic to tielieve tuai wuaievor uuil lliero
iniKht bavo been in tho conduct ot that
Bureau was through the Incompetence or
dishonesty of subordinates, ttnd did not
involve iho character of the chief. But
the lubjoct is now brwughl up in tuch
shape that serious consequences must fol
low Gon. Howard's failure to make a fuller
explanation of bis part in tlo traductions
than bo bas seen fit to give.
Secretary Belknap umclallj informs tho
Speaker of tb Hons of Ropreaontatlroi
that the latoFrcrduien'bareauIs charged
with nJefloiency in lt accounts ot noarjy
threo hundrod thousand dollars. Les
than fifty dollars of this amount is in con
sc'iuence of defalcations amoni; subordi
nates, and therefore cannot to attributed
to any fault of the commissioner, so lar as
is known. Of the rest, thore is what Is
called a retained bounty fund, received by
tho bureau, and wholly unaccounted for,
amounting to ono hundred and twenty
thousand dollars, and a large amount, more
than ono hundred thousand dollars which
appear! as having been paid for bounty
claims, but for which ao authentic receipts
aro on fil, whilo thu claims aro still
pressing. That somubody (Sommlttnd
frauds and appropriated the money for
private purposes there can bu no doubt.
"Wo bavo romarked beforo that pro
bably General Howard could not bo charg
ed with a conspiracy to rob tho colored
people and tho Treuiury, as this condition
of alfairs might Imply; but that his fault
was that of oxecutiro inefficiency. He
was undoubtedly incompetent, by lack of
business habits, to have charge of a depart
ment of tho nature of tbo Frocdmens
Bureau, and he confided its affair to good-for-nothing
office seekers, becanso they
wore needy. But it seem to us that be
hsi loo long remained quiet under the
charges against him ; and that mi uxpla
nation is required. In a caso like this,
uncertainty is almost as bad as conviction
i.ud Gen. Hotvard must defend himsolf.
A dispatch from Chicago on Thursday
said that Col, Charles II. Howard, a
brother of Gon. Howard, is nlto placed on
the dofensivo in another transaction in
volving corrupt mollvos. Mr. "William
Wolch, of the Indian commission, charges
that he lm conspired with tho Indian
Commissioner Smith to make a fraudu
lent contract on tho Indian pine lands of
"Wisconsin. This lubjoct, as well'a that
of the Frecdman's Bureau, will probably
be investigated by Congress.
THE RECENT DEATH FROM CHLO
ROFORM IN BOSTOJT.
The case has attracted much attention, not
unly from the attempt mado just after the
accident to pass tho death off as one from
ether, but alio, when it becamo evident
that it was due to chloroform, from anxiety
to teo what would be tbo conclusion of a
Boston jury. Tho verdict Is all that could
bo desired, as it expresses emphatically
tho feeling of the profession, and wo do
not find fault that Dr. Knitham was spar
ed the well-deserved censure which ho must
have expected. The misfortunes of tbo
fi&tt should be rememberod only a wani
ng for (tho future. The use of chloro
form is loast justifiable where etber is
ueu known; tuero is lest ux:uso lor IM
use in America than in Europe, and least
of all In this city. After this vordlct,
nothing but very exceptional circum
stances will warrant its administration.
It appears in tho evidence that reveral
dentuu aro in the habit of giving which
ever anaesthetic they seo fit, icgardless of
tbe request of tho patient. "Wo hope that
this custom is not gonerat, and would ad
vise any who may preiist in it not to ho
too sure that after another patient who
hall have asked for ether has been killed
by cloroforiu.tbo verdict aiav not contain.
