Washington, November 20, 1878.
Gen. H. V. Boynton, one of the best
known and most reliable of Washington
arrespondcntfl. and one who does not often
let his political opinions interfere with the
accuracy of his statements, has just had
suit entered against him in the sum of $r0,.
000, for slander. Gen. Boynton made state
ments now said to be lalse, concerning a
government detective. Moore, the detec
tive, was employed by Grant, or Grant's
friend', in an effort to discover what Bris
tow and other enemies of Grant's
second administration, were doing. I
mention the mutter because it is not un
likely the suit, if pressed, will disclose
much of the secret history of the last six
Congress meets on December 21, and the
liou.se w ill rind ready for its action several
of the appropriation bills. The department
estimates are generally based on last year's
appropriations, and so great is the desire on
all hands to have ti quiet session that
it is not believed the hoima
will insist on many reductions or that the
senate will insist ou increasing unreason
ably the amounts to be voted. As hereto
fore stated there is considerable- anxiety
felt as to the success of the effort to resume
specie payments, which will be Hindu under
tho law within a month of the meeting of
congress, and without regard to party nearly
all the members of both houses will en
deavor to aid in every way the effort. It is
impossible to say what proper or improper
bills may be introduced on the subject, but
it is certain that nono which are unfavor
able to resumption will have a chanco of
passage. Whether the result shall bo good
or bad, tho understanding is that the coun
try is committed to the attempt to resume
on January 1st just as much as it was to the
payment of the unjust fishery award, nnd
any interfereiicn bo generally deemed un
patriotic. If wo may judge by the tone oftho press,
both North and South the flurry of appar
ent anger which existed just previous to
the November elections has dis
appeared. Such things are not
wholly evil if they finally bring different
communities to a better understanding of
each other. I have never wondered that
many in the south felt extremely bitter
toward the north, after the conclusion of
the civil war, or that many iti the north
having confused Ideas of our government,
felt as if their section had a kind of pro
prietary right in tho southern states, and
was culled upon to net in tho capacity of
guardl.m. Such feelings were naturtl. As
It kueinud to bo for tho luterest of a few
southern politicians, and of a great party
in the north, that those feelings should con
tinue, It if) not perhaps strungo that they
bavo not entirely given place to Iwtter
ones. But all tho tendencies, especially in
tho south, are iu tho right direction. I
consider Gen. Gordon's unanimous election
to the senate, tho other day, a Mter prom
ise of future harmony, than almost any
thing ehm that could have occurred. There
are numerous othe indications there
that reason and patriotism are in contol.
That harmony will bo enduring. In the
early days of the next session of congress
there will come up in the senate at unfin
ished business from the last session, and for
final action, a proosition iu which the
whole country, but the south especially, is
interested and to which tho assent of the
patriotic north is asked. It is a measure
which justice-loving northern men can
unite in supporting. It is the giving of
government countenance to a southern rail
road to the Pacific. I am free to say that
if any Company in that or any other sec
tion should come before congress with the
extravagant demand made by those who
built the Union and Central roads, or those
who commenced the Northern Pacific all
in reality, northern roads I should wish
such company to be refused any aid or as
sistance. But the truth is that the only
really southern road asks for no government
bonds, and asks for no land, but proposes
to return to the United States ao,00(),000
acres of land. It asks, really, on a govern
ment guarantee of interest on a limited
amount of bonds, and pledges a completed
road for the security of the government. I
said that justice-loving northern men could
vote for this. It is all that the south has
asked. It is all that she will nsk against
the enormous subsidies heretofore given to
distinctly northern enterprises of the kind.
I go further and say that no northern man
who loves justice can vote against the

The grave question has been presented
to the Baptist ministers of New York, "Is
it right for a 'church member to bo book-
kueper in a wholesale liquor store J" One
reverend gentleman knew of a man who
was offered such position, nnd who, if hu
took it, would lie able to make larger
donations to his church and to missionary
objects. Still hu thought that to keep
books in a liquor house was to become a
yoke-fellow of the devil. Another doctor
of divinity thought that thu better the book
keeper the livelier the rum traffic. One broth
er from the tobacco fields of Connecticut
suggested doubts. If it is wrong to serve
in a wholesale liquor store, then is it not
wrong likewise, to go into a tobacco ware
house? And a large portion of the church
es of the Nutmeg state are supported on
the proceeds of tobacco sales. Tho brethren
dropped the subject as unportltable. These
great moral questions am continually
coming up. A young man living near Man

The theory ot Darwin, when regarded
in de-tail is very nmusing. We have al
ways had tho feeling that if he hunted
long enough he wouhbeease to resemble
the New York detectives, for he would
certainly find what he was after. And he
has found it, a Coolie child with a tail, and
is now occupied in waving the British flag
over it and shouting at the top of his lung-,
'I told you so," and Huxley and Tyndall
and their disciples gather alsmt the cradlt
and reverently add "Amen." There is only
one physiological difficulty, and that is
that up to tho latest moment when the
news could lie telegraphed tho poor baby
couldn't wag that tail as monkeys are won't
to do, or as the missing link, it was hoped
would be able to do. No, he can't wag
the tail, and this may after all throw shann
on tho theory of evolution, because accord
ing to that theory the power to wag is
exceedingly important. But there is another,
side even to this matter, and we ask with
tears, "If the baby monkey, or the monkey
baby or this long looked i'or missing liuk
ltetwcen a baby aud a monkey, can't wag
his, her or its tail do pray look again Mr.
Darwin and see if the tail can't wag tin
baby. Give us that consolation at least."
There must lie a wag somewhere, but, uud
