OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
DoUer nd Davis naileil for Inrerpool
11icUjr on th. temliii Wisconsin.
O'Imtj take Ins running mare, Thought,
with him. .ml it Is exoecterl th will take
pari in races in England. The pwlest riaiu
will I present at the contest for the Astljr
belt to take place at Agricultural Hall,
London, commencing Novemlier 1st. Dob
ler will take part in the contest.O'Leary I. as
entered him, and he expect, great things
of the Chicago bor. The entries hare boen
closed, and among the Americana who
have entered are Dobler, with a record of
531 miles; Howard, M6 miles, and I'egram,
(colored) .Ml. The Knglishnieu are, Row
ell, 530 miles; "blower" Iirowti, 553 mile.;
Corkef, 51 miles, and Haze, 500 miles.
Hart, goes as a siiectAtnr. Gtiyon will be
matched against Vaughn in a heel and toe
walk. Vaughn was second to O'Learj
when the latter won the Astir lie It in the
first contest in England. O'Leary say.
that Dobler is the best man we hare here
to send for the belt, and that the man who
wins it will have to walk for it. Kowell
has plenty ol money and wanta to marry
and settle down. It is his ambition to set
tle down as the owner of the belt, which
he can be if he wins it this tinie, as he
has already won it twice. Besides, he and
Brown ale bitter enemies, and the latter
will do his best to win the belt. The gate
money dues not amount to anything in
England, and the belt must be brought to
New York in order to innie anything like
enough to pAy expenses.
For some time I he horses of Sew York
and vicinity have been troubled with a
complaint rery similar to the epizootic of
1B73, only of a much milder character. A
general improvement bai been noted dur
ing the past week. In most cf the stables
nearly every horse has been more or less
afflicted by the sickness, but except in
comparatively few instances they have been
able to work, citable men are inclined to
believe that, with favorable weather, by
another week the affectum will have entire
ly dieappeared. The epizootic has made
its apiiearauce on Stalen Island, both in
Iiublic and private stables, but, as far as
mown, the horses on the farms in the in
terior of the island have not been attacked
yet with the disease. It is believed that
in most instances the sick horses contract
ed the disease in New York. William
Hose, the county veterinary surgeon, ves-
terday vis-ited the brewery stables of a large
concern at the Four Corners, in the center
of the Island, and found twelve horses sick,
but in all cases only a very mild type ap-
ears. it. is said thai any staoie may be
ent free from the disease bv simply hing
ing a large btig ot coaree charcoal where
the air can circulate freely. It is, at least.
an easy remedy to try.
lne x burnpean steamers which sailed
from the port of New York Saturday last
carried a total of 15,2-50 barrels of apples.
in addition to other freight. American ap
ples having become a luxury much sought
after in the old country.
ran witn us Brilliant timed leaves is
ith us, and every sunny afternoon ladies
and children throng th. parks of both
New lork and lirooklyn gathering all
within their reach. You who lire in the
country, or in beautiful villages, hare lit
tle idea with what avidity these full pro
ductions are sought after by your city
cousins. Indeed, it is safe to say that
there are 10,000 people in the city of New
York who have not seen a green leaf this
summer, and many children who never
saw a grove of trees in their lives.
t'hostnuts are plentiful this year, and
the average Brooklyn &y has only Pros
pect fark for his nutting ground. No
tices are conspicuously posted -on every
tree to the effect that nuts may be picked
from the ground, but no trees are to be
climbed or nuts beaten from the branches.
These rules are very hard lo enforce, for
the moment the backs of the park police
are turned the sticks and stones rattle
among the branches like hail. For every
nut striking the ground, there are three or
four boys ready to grab for it.
To give a slight idea ot the enormous
amount of labor and expense necessary to
keep the streets of New York in a fairly
clean condition, I give the following figures
for the mouth of bepteiuber. Number of
loads of dirt taken away, 20,932; loads of
ashes, 57,0(12, at a total cost of $48,045.
This is the first month in which an accu
rate table of street cleaning mutter, has
been compiled and laid before the public.

They tell this good story about Oen. Joe
Hawley going to the war in 1801. He was
then an editor on the Hartford iVess.since
consolidated with the Courant. When the
news came of the firing on Sumter, and
the call for 75,000 men, Hawley having
tried several times to write on the subject,
laid down his pen with, "Boys, I'm going
to do tne fighting for this office; yon must
run the paper," and went outand enlisted.
He was the first volunteer from the State
of Connecticut. The Ire furnished from
its employees a large number of volunteers
first and last. It is related that on one oc
casion, after the Prtsi bad been unusually
patriotic in it. appeals, one of the com
positors announced that he had enlisted.
One of the editors congratulated him, and
remarked that perhaps the recent editorials
had been pretly euectlve. "liora, noi saiu

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
Toe inlroKt in th. election is .very day
growing more intense her. at the ()pita).
Slat associations are in session nightly,
and tons of Republican documents are I
ing sent to doubtful voters in every North
ern State. Thousands have left for their
homes to engage in th. work of the cam
paign. Money is raised to help voter, un
able lo pay Ihe expense of the reduced fare
given by nearly all railroads. The work
done by the National Republican Commit,
toe thus far has been four limes that of
any previous Presidential campaign. Every
Republican agency is energized by one
thought, a peaceful victory if possible over
the frauds of Ih. Solid South.
Letter writing, Hancock, "I" and brass
buttons seem strangely mixed on Govern
or's Island. The effusion of HanciK-k to
the representatives of the shipping inter,
ests was "gushy." Only 100 words, yet
"I," candidate, was shoved in ten times
His latest has 128 words, and "I" is saud-
"wiched in with brass buttons eleven times.
The brisk air of New York harbor, and
the coming 138 voles of she Solid South,
have an exhilerating influence upon this
The Democratic party stands convicted
before the world of attempting, in 1870,
to capture the government by buying elec
toral votes with "bar'ls" of money, sand
wiched with knives, shot-guns, assassina
tions and murders. Will loyal men trust
them in 1880 with their votes.
It is no wonder that the South is solid
for the ruliel Democracy. Armed men,
backed by ail the power of the government,
have, ever sine. Lee's surrender, been wag
ing a war for the suppression of illicit dis
tilling, in the interest of enforcing the
revenue law and the collection of the
whisky tax. When has any effort in like
manner been made by this magnanimous
government to suppress murders, night
riders, frauds, or to enforce the rights of
freedmen uuder the fourteenth and fif
teenth amendments. A distinguished
clergyman, widely known through the
South, a rebel during the war and for Han
cock now, admitted to your correspondent,
a few weeks bince, that he had known of
multitudes of colored men being killed
since the war by the white-?, but had never
kuown one punished for such killing. The
arena of strife changed at the surrender.
It was a struggle for four years, prior to
the sarceat Appomaitox.aguinst the Union
and from that date the battle has been
against th. Union men of the South.
With no protection from the government,
and many a conflict, these loyal men have
been forced to surrender. Tbe South is
solid of course.
What we may expect of Hancock wltti
his 138 solid votes may be guessed from a
slight scrutiny of the present Congress,
The following rebel officers, booted and
spurred, are chairman of committees in
the U. a. benate. Kead it, voters of the

A few facts are worthy of consideration
as showing how the Southern Republicans
have been bulldozed into a surrender tn
the Demooracy, who promise to cast 138
electoral votes for Hancock. The vot cast
at previous elections was as follows, viz. :
Let the ku-klux, night riders, rifle olubs,
and their ghostly, ghastly doings, tell
where the 602,248 Republicans voles are.
Ten of thousands of them have been
"fixed," just for fun, by the Southern
bloods to snake 138 solid votes for Han
oock. In the Sixth Mississispl District the vote
was as follows;

have been silenced and th. hero of Fort

WHY I AM A REPUBLICAN?
WHY I AM A REPUBLICAN? Speech of General Grant at Warren, Ohio.
JjOilittani Oenltmrn, ho:f we may
bt able lo have quiet and order here. It is
not importnnt so far as anything that I
will h-ive to say to you is concerned, be
cause I shall not he able to make many of
you bear; but after me comes a speaker
whom I know you will all be glad to hear,
and you can do so by keeping quiet and
orderly. Not being accnstom.il to speak
ing publicly, I hav. drawn off a few words
whiob I will say in advance of the gentle
man who is to follow me.
Taking, roll of manuscript from his
pocket, the General read; "In view of the
known character and ability of the speaker
who is to address you to-day, and his long
public career and association with leading
statesmen of this country for the past
twenty years, it would not lie becoming in
me to detain you with many remarks ol my
own, but it may be proper for me to ac
count to you on the first occasion of my
presiding at political meetings for Ihe faith
that is in me, lama Republican, as the
two great political parties are now divided,
because the Republican party is the national
party, seeking th. greatest good far the
greatest number of its citizen.. There is
not a precinct in this vast nation where a
Democrat cannot east bis ballot and have
it counted as cast, no matter whi the nra.
dominance of the opposite party. He can
proclaim nis poiiticai opinions, even if he
is on. among thonsands, without fear and
itnout proscription on account of his
opinions. 1 her. are fourteen Stater, and
local ities in some others, where Republicans
have not this privilege. This isone reason
why I am a Republican. But I am a Repub.
lican for many reasons. The Republican
party assures protection to life, propertv,
public credit and the navment of lha riVLt
of the Government, State, county or mu
nicipal, so far as itcan control. The Dem
ocrat party does not promise this. If it
does, it has broken its promise tothe extent
of hundreds of millions, as many Northern
Democrats can testify to their sorrow.
I am a Republican as between existin"
parties, because it fosters the production o"f
the field and farm, and of manufactories;
and it encourages the general education of
the poor as well as the rich. Tb. Demo
cratic party discourages all these when in
absolute power. The Republican party is
the parly of progress and of liberality to
ward its opponents. It encourages the
poor to strive to better their condition, the
ignorant to educate their children to en
able them to compete successfully with
their more fortunate associates, and, in
fine, it secures an entire equality, before
the law, of every citizen. No matter what
nis race, nationality or previous condition,
it tolerates no privileged class; everyone
has an opportunity to make himself all he
is capable of. Ladies and gentlemen, do
you believe this can be truthfully said in
the greater part of fourteen of the states
of this Union to-day, which the Democrats
contrail absolutely? The Republican par
ty is a party of principles, the
same principles prevailing wherever it has
The Democratic partr is united in but
one thing, and that is in getting control of
tne government in an its branches. It is
for internal improvement so at theexnensn
of the government in one section, and
against them in another. It favors the re
pudiation of solemn obligations in one sec
tion, and the honest payment of its debts
in another where public opinion will not
tolerate any other view. It favors fiat
money in one place and good money in an
other. Finally it favors the pooling of all
issues not favored by the Republicans, to
the end that it may secure the one princi
ple upon which the party is a most harmo
ious unit, namely gaining oontroll of the
governnment in all its branches. I have
been in some parts of every state lately in
rebellion within last year. I was most
hospitably received at every place where I
stopped. My receptions were not by the
Union class alone, but by all classes with
out distinction. I had a free talk with
many who were against us in the war, and
who have been against the Republican
party .very since. They were in all in.
stances reasonable men, judged by what
thsy said. I believed then, and believe
now, that th.y sincerely want a break up
in this solid South, in its political condi
tion. Th.y sm that it is to their pecuni
ary interests, as well as to their happiness,
that there should be harmony aud confi
dence between all sections. They want to
break away from the slavery that binds
them to a party name; they want pretext
that enough of them can unite upon to
make it respectable. One. started, the sol
id South will go as Ku-Kluxism did before
and is so admirably told by Judge Tourjee
in bis "Fool's Errand." When the break
comes those who start it will be astonished
to find how many of their friends have
been in favor of it for a long time, and
nave only been awaiting to sea some one
take the lead. This desirable solution can
only be attained by tha defeat, and con
tinued defeat of the Democratio party, as
