A PLAIN BTAt'EMENT OF A PLUS CAVE.
TO TH10 AMKKIc>N PUBLIC.
Menem. K. I*. Blair, senior and junior, have published
in the New York Tribune of the 2!Uh of .VLiy, and in
other |iapent. a letter which 1 pronounced in the outstart,
in the Trihune and iu the New York Evening Tost, and
now again pronounce to be a lilwi on the life and cluuv
acter and 1 ought to have added, and do now mid. on
the liuath-licd?of the lately-deceased statesman, Tuny ?s
li. ltmnuM. The p<milieu and antooadents of the elder
Mr. Blair, and some special circumstances counis-ted
herewith, make it iui:uiul>eut on rue that I should
separate this letter of the Messrs. Blair from tire general
current of scandal and uiisrcpresentation that Colonel
Hetiton's name, as every n.uue that reaches to public
i ..nstderalhm. is subject to, ami to take notice of it.
The letter of the Messrs. Blair is entitled, "C'U. Brnlou'$
.yxiuu/i></ tJu iuliiuiiinlr-iUon -?A rrjilt) lu Mr. Wat. Curry Juurr.''
This title conveys?what shall I call it .' It intimates
what iit not the fact -namely, that I have undertaken to
jjiyo t'ol. Benton's "opinions." I did no such thing.
The <-?tnuiuniratiou to which tike Messrs Blair adibresa.
their "reply" waaconfliitsl, first, to preseut. at the request
is many of Col. Benton's friends, anil to correct idle and
emswous re|s?rt?, aotnu of his last writing in his own
wonts, with the circumstances under wuieli they were
written ; xami, to contimliet a statement of tltc New
York Tribune of 8th April, so ein 'iiinstauiially made as
to In; calculatMi to give it credence, and to which 1 hy
name was called as a witness, and which in essential particulars
was not true.
The letter of the Messrs. Blair, therefore, in its very
caption, eoiitaius a misrepresentation which, if not inteiitiouul,
shows a remarkable facility for blunder ; and the
same misrepresentatio.i runs til1 ouglt tha whole letter.
The htter of tae Messrs Blair holds out the idea, and
sts-ius to he based imi it, that i had endeavored to make
the iiupremioii that the daeMMMtl statesman favored what
the rant of tire ilay called "faMompton. '' I said no such
thing. I said, and now say, that he was "too much absorbed
in his actual labors ami with graver affairs to lie
excited on temporary questions." sncli as t.: it that was
then "vexing Congress and the count./." This is misrepresentation
No. i of the joint lett sr.
Mr. If. P. Blair, junior, avows himself to hare l?v?
the informant of the writer in the Tribune, Init acknowledges
that he was not present at what ho undertakes to
describe, and that the interview that lie reported was
with fat Jfatktr, and nut with any "old and intimate Missouri
friend" of the deceased, as In the report itself he
twice states that it was. Mr V P. Blair, junior, is theteiore
ilisiuiwwd on his own showing.
Mr. K. P. Biair, senior, tries to escape the ilileuima hy
saving:
Mr June-', as is evident I'rotu his cord, was aware that tho inter
view 1 ascribed was with '.to. an-1 the mba-iko ofthe Tribune's ism
r. sisuideut was mem laOssmcs. from my relations with Oul. Uonlon,
Ihwt 1 wss sa '.<U ami intimate Jhuuwrt friend ' "
i did know that the report of the interview must have
cows originally from Mr. Blair, senior. But (though I
could not. in my mind, excuse his going into the streets
at all to retail acoouuts of such an interview) 1 was reluctant
to use his name, and determined not to do so tfuli-ss
on compulsion ; and wus willing to believe that wi at
was false in the report was the exaggeration and invention
of third or fourth pickers-up, tutd not his. But I was
nut aware that the designation "old and intimate Missouri
friend" was applied to Mr. Blair, senior, hy "mere Inference."
1 am aware of the contrary ; that it is not |n*c
sitile tliata Washington correspondent of any newspaper
-certainly not he of the New York Tribune, and
chosen, too, as tire organ lor the occasion?-could lie so
icnoraut of the anteceileiils and for forty years whereiil?iitta
of the eltler Blair, as so to mislocate him. 'The
matter is clear enough. Putting the report on an "old
and intimate Missouri friend '' was a device ; and tlie
no iet of tliat device, and of Ukc whole origiiuil relation in
the Tribune, and of the letter on which I am now commenting,
is solved in Ave words of the senior Blair?"my
sex " tub wssouni cwxvass."
Tlio parts of the article hi the Tribune of Kth April,
which the elder Blair step* forward to make his own. that

Mr. Blair. senior, let me invite you. ah a man of at least
induction auil logic, to compare the diili-rent statements

How Is it possible tliat in the same breath (and almost his

to the same point. Only the day before the

Mr. Blair, senior, 1 again address you personally. How
is it tintt you -of all men yvu who had known Col. Bunton
so loug, and have had sueit relations with him, and
kuew hia entire self-abnegation -that lie never took office
himself aud ofteu refused it in tiie highest graiies; never
asked otlkse tor one of his family ; lias often declined it
for them when olfetrsd ; was opposed, as a rule, to their
accepting it; never in all his life swerved a hair's breadth

he hits a r1''wheator <sie that you tnay well denominate
as you do " delimit " ?a vimiiealor of a good name and ;
of dvin^ hours against your defuniations of them.
Mr. Illoir c uw?3u to use my name in tills connexion. i
The occasion is opportune to put the tnith on record, that i
no future Blair may oi-e me as an rxunpie to contradict '
the words of the uiau woo, after thirty eoutiauous years
of conspicuous and iutlueutial service m tite Senate, and
more tlwu forty years of public life, could say that "he I
never hail office or ooutract for himself or hi* blood.'' 1 I
have lust some employments under the federal govern- I
meut; I have also declined some that were offered to uie ;
hut, so far l'rotu Colonel Hen ton having solicited for me. (
he was not in any instance aware of the find till after it i
hail occurred ; and only in one instance was be in this
city at the time ; anil on that occasion neither he nor
myself hod knowledge of the appointment till the fact of
the nomination and coutiriuatiou was stated in tlie news
|Kt|>eni. The two hoitoralde gentlemen to whom I was
indebted for that unexpected and altogether unsolicited
Compliment are both gone hence ; hut I cannot refer to
the circumstance witliout gratefully mentioning their
names -I allude to President Taylor and Secretary of State
Clayton.
The only civil employment that, as far as I am aware,
has ever been in the Itaiuls of any other member of Col. i
Bi'iiton's family, was the appointment of Colonel Fas
host to he Commissioner for the Boundary Survey lie- I
twee it the United State* and Mexico, under the treaty of
1848. lite tacts touching that appointment are creditable j
and honorable to all concerned, and lutve historical in- i
forest. A lew weeks after the inauguration of General
Tayioh as President, Mr. Clayton sent for nu*, and told |
me that it was the desire of the President and Cabinet j
to offer some murk of respect to Colonel Fremont, and !
asked me if I thought tliat he would accept the place of |
Boundary (suumisskme:', for which he was pre-erai- ,
neatly qualified, and would be a continuation of the pursuits
he had been engaged in. 1 replied that the offer and I
the mauner of it I was certain would be grateful to Col. :
Fremont, ami that I thought the pluce itself would !
he acceptable ; hut I did not think he would like or consent
thai another should lie removed to make place for
him. Mr. Clayton said that at all events he would send
the commission, to signify the desires of the admiriistra
tion and its regard for Col. Fremont. Colonel Benton
was at that time in MifNouri, and knew nothing of these
circumstance*, nor of the appointment, till I communicated
them to him by letter. Colonel Fremont was in
California, and knew nothing and anticipated nothing of j
the appointment till he was surprised by the receipt ,,f
the commission. Tlie whole was gratifying, certainly,
to Colonel Benton, and to all tlie family ; for we regarded
it as a voluntary rebuke, on the pai t of tlie veteran
General?Commander iu Chief of the army hero ol' Palo
Alto, Monterey, and Bueua Vista?to tlie iniquitous pro
<ee<ungs una uii|iihi luugnieuioi toe military wint iiefore :
which Col. Fremont Inn I just previously been arraigned.
A further mention of the mum- of Col. Fronton t by
Mr 111 air the objei t of whii'h mention in plain gana|<b,
aiiiI malicious enough drawn to my recollection another
prominent iiiHhuiet: of tlie entire disregard of Col. Benton |
,iunl 1 may nay, at ooco, of alt bin tribei to ofHeial favor, i
in comparison of personal honor and iiidcjondeiice I
allude to the manner in which Col. Kreoiout refused the
Kit* olive pardon. against the judgment olaive spoken of,
offered liiin by President I'olk, with rank and prospectof
speedy alnaeHMOt the promptings of Col. Benton j
were given that in to say, his counsels were exactly cor
roeimmk'iit to the judgment and foregone ilei inion of the
two younger men who were iu the lutliit of hearing him:
and within ten minutes of the receipt of the official notification.
the writer of this was on his way to
the War Department with a note from Colonel Fre
moot, repudiating the judgment of the court, refusing
the proffered pan ion, and peremptorily resigning his
commission. 'l"he Adjutant Uenenil. to whom I ileliv
erod the letter, expostulated with me, and begged mo to
take it hack for consideration and counsel; and no, after
ward, dkl l'roaideut Polk and otiieia eounecteil with the
aihuiniatiation. The present President bf the United '
States, who was then Secretary of .State, expostulated
with Cal. Benton, ami deprecated, on the part of the ail- ;

and the advanced position that he hod attained in tiiait

REPORTED DEATH Oh' THE EMPEROR Of C/H VA.
Tits N?w York Christian Advocate of the ICtli publishes
the following intelligence from a gentleman whom
we suppose to he an American missionary ill China :
Kuh Ciiait, China, March 22, 1858.
It is currently re|strte?l that the toiperor ildwl. Tlie
Russian emhassv received letters from rckin, dated on
last Christmas day, stating tluit the If uperor then was
very sick ; that his lower liml* were entirely paralyzed, I
and that lie could not live much longer. The English
embassy received news via Cantou from Pckiu, dated iu
February, 1858, to the effect that the Emperor is dead.
This report, however, is uot credited hen*, 'lne report of
the Emperor's dangerous illness seems to 1st well authenticated
; and it is highly probable his death may soon
add a fresh complication to the present negotiations, and
furnish another link to the chain of gnmtavuute by which
Clod is opening up tliis mighty empire to the (hsipel of
his Son. R. S. MAOLAY.
SALE Of THE SOUTHER,V PACIFIC RAIL
ROAD.
From the Marshall i Texas) Flax of the 5th instant we \

belonging thereunto, together with the rights and frailchiles
appertaining to the old company. '1 ni' sale took
place on Tuesday. '2d instant, under tile deed of trust executed
sometime Inst summer ; and lifter some little bidding,
the whole of this vast, property, estimated by hundreds
of intelligent men to lie worth fully one hundred
millions of dollars, was knouked off to L)r. .1. M. finders,
of Harrison county, for the sum of forty thousand dollars
'
An iuiunction hud l>een ianted out against the purchases.
but as a bond of $500,0(10 was required to give it
force, and us that laind liad not tiecn given up to the
latest dates, it W'M not amount to much.
At a meeting of the purchasers, the following resolution
was punned :

an independent police ; until it should be done, they ,
never would have a proper and efficient police.
Mr Dosouo ?m unw|inintwi with the laniitbations 1
of these poiitionl aasor'ations, sod was epmewhat surprised '
at the remarks that were ius ie In relation to them.
Mr. Rums tin.unlit they might as well include the
"Masons," as it was the duty of thasa to protect their
fellows. __ i
Mr. Smith could not come to any cruel asion from what ;
he had heard. It seeine.i to him that the Mayor would '
have a hard duty to perforin if tie should attempt to up
point one hundred policemen of no political party, lie 1
thought, so many men of this description could not lie ?
found in the city, lie, however, coincided in the opinions
of others, that policemen shor'd not actively engage
in the pat.y polities ; but still he was not in favor
of depriving them of the right of expressing their opinions
ou tile ipiestions of the day.
The i'Hksi moer believed that the Mayor should be left
free to make his own appointments, since he was held reH|sinsil>lu
for tlie performance of their duties. Kor this
reason he should vote hi favor of the motion to strike
out.
Mr. Mooas did not believe the clause restrained the
powers of the Mayor It merely provided that the policemen
should not remain or become members of these
orgaui nations.
T|ie l'mcsiuEXT held a different |Mwition.
Mr. Smitii expressed the opinion that tlie Mayor, in
luakeig his apt>oiutiuciiU under tile bill, could not, witli
the aid of a "line-tooth comb," lind tifteeii men of no
political [sirty.
Mr. Min.uk insisted upon his construction of thu
clouce.
After further discussion, the ipiestion was token and
the amendment of Ilr. Misne was agreed to?yeas 7.
nays 5.
The munition recurring on the amendment of Mr.
Riggs,
Mr. Di amxoToN moved to amend the clause so that
its provisions would refer to illegal or disorderly political
organisation*. 1
Mr. Rums said ho would not press his amendment, if
that amend nent should lie r.Jopted.
Mr. SkiW would lie compelled to vote against tlie
am. idiucnt because he did not lielicve it meant any
thing.
lir. Dumxinoton thought its meaning was obvious for
the reason that an organization might tie illegal as well
as d'sorderly.
The ipiestioii lieiug taken, the amendment of Mr. Dunuington
prevailed yens 7, nays 5.
'lue question recurring ou the remainder of the
clause, *
Mr. Aabow W. v llrr moved to strike out the clause
as amended ; which motion was not agr ed to?yeas 4,
nays S.
Mr. limits moved to strike out tlie remainder of the
clause ; which motion was agreed to?yers 8, nays 3.
Tlie proviso, as amended, roads as fellows :

Several hours were then passed perfecting the Ull
Hut little discussion ensued, ami the amendments that
prcval'od related principally to the government of tlie
police when on duty. These regulations are wise, and
will, no doubt, imikje the police efficient and trustworthy.
After passing through the bill in this manner, it wiis
read the third time and passed.
And then the board adjourned till Monday next.
Oss or tux Oitraors wr brad or.?The Star of yesterday
afternoon handsomely admits that there was no trutli
in the statement made a few days since in Its columns
that a young lady had been stopped by a robber in broad
day light, on one of our public streets. Tlie improbable
story arose bom a family jest, a brot her taking his sis- F
ter's jtorte moniwit ns he met her, anil after opening it saying
: "Hero, hike your pari* mmuiair. hack?there's only
ten cents in it, and that's not worth taking." 'lTiis was
given to all tlie world and tlie rest of mankind ns a
F
daring attempt at highway robbery, and the Star was at j
first loth to retract. C
Now that the Star "takes back" this outrage, we
would inquire if it has not published other accounts
