Kn ow Eton, , AN ISSUE BETWEEN THE PORT LAND ADVERTISER AND OUR SELVES AS TO A MATTER OF FACT. We have been studying for several days past whether it were worth while to take any farther notice of the Portland Adver tiser's continued and causeless assaults on Speaker Blaine. After our exposure of its utter misrepresentations of Air. Blaine’s course on President Johnson’s vetoes of the Freedmcn’s Bureau and Civil Bights hills, we were prepared for its silence and did not of course expect thmnagna nimity of a retraction or an amende, hut we confess ourselves surprised that even the Advertiser should venture to say that the “ records of the 0lobe are not in accord ance with the Journal's statements." In order to vindicate our own statements we propose to see precisely what those records arc. In volume 67 of the Globe, page 1720. under date of April 2, 1800, General Schenek, then chairman of the military committee, made the following statement to the House in regard to the army hiU, ° * j and we now quote the paragraph entire, having previously only given so much as relates to the question of absence. “Xow sir, it may relieve gentlemen to know ! that the committee liave had a sub-committee at work on this subject, that they are prepar ed to report a bill, but that the gentleman j from Maine (Mr. lllaine) who is on the sub- ] committee which has had the- subject in i charge lias been called away suddenly by the deatli of a near connection in Boston; he is thcr.- now, and the committee would prefer to wait tor a pi riod of about eight days,"during ; which, ns 1 understand by letter and tele- ! graph from him, he may be detained there, before making their report.” President Johnson’s veto of the Civil Rights Bill was sent to the Senate .Match j 27th, aud was under discussion in that i body at the time of Gen. Schenek's state-! incut—not being voted on there till the Gth day of April, it was entirely impossible to anticipate the time when it might be voted ou in the House. On the Ctli of April the contested elec tion case of Dodge vs. Brooks was decided iti tbe House. At the conclusion of the roll call Mr. Hice of Maine, said, (see Globe, vol. 67, page 1819:) . “I am paired on this question with my col- i league (Mr. Blaine.) If lit were lure lie would vote tor the sitting member and I should 1 vote against him.” Oil the 10th of April, the motion to re- ■ consider the vote by which the House had . rejected the Bankrupt Bill some time before, was called up and decided by yeas and nays. At the conclusion of the roll call, Mr. Bike of Maine, said(, sec Globe, vol. b7, page 1673:) “Upon this question I am paired with my colleague, Mr. Blaine. If he were lure, he ! w ould vote against the reconsideration and I would vote for it.” Now be it remembered that the veto of j the Civil Bights Bill was acted on in the House on the 'Jth day of April—and yet the Portland Advertiser persists in its statement that Mr. Blaine was present and “sat silent during the debate and at the roll eatl." The Globe shows that Mr. Blaine re sumed his seat in the House on the 13th of! April, and the Army Bill was immediately I taken up on motion of General Schenck. So much for the absence of Mr. Blaine when the veto ol the Civil Bights Bill was disposed of in the House. The evidence in the Globe a» to his absence from sick ness when the Preedmeu’s Bureau veto was disposed of is equally conclusive, i That veto was voted upon in tile House July lOtli. The files of the Kennebec Journal! show that Mr. Blaine arrived at home in ill health on lb - bth of July. Not recov ering Ins health sufficiently to return t<> Washington during the hot weather, the Globe of July 10th, volume .7J, page 3711, lias the following record : "Tuc .Si-*.*iu.u. The chair lias been re quested by the gentleman from Maine (Mr. ! Blame) to a»k leave of absence for him for the rnnnuidc/' of the session on account uf in dtsaosition. Leave was granted.” Six days after this record, the vote on the veto was taken iu the House, and the Portland Advertiser persists in its state ment that 31r. Blaine w as present “and scit si!: n! during the debate and at the roll call." “What, your Honor,” said a prosecuting atttomev, “can be done with a man who ‘ swears falsely and sticks to it. “Let him lie'' responded the Judge “and pick up the I next witness!" i Thus much we have said to vindicate our own accuracy of statement and to convict the Portland Advertiser of a wan ton and perverse misstatement with the verv evidence of the truth in the hands of it' editor. As far as Mr. Blaine is con cerned tiiere was indeed no necessity of a word of defence from the beginning. Hav ing voted for the vetoed bills at every stage of their enactment his record was complete—and as to his avoiding a con lliet with the President we would be glad to have the Advertiser state what .Mr. Blaine's course was during the ensuing State campaign of lSOtv. He not only con ducted it with his usual activity ns chair man of the State committee, but especially represented Gov. Chamberlain in a series of public discussions with the democratic candidate -Mr. l’iilsbury, in which diseus hous the very points involved in these vetoes were the main points of contro versy. But we forbear further remark. If the Advertiser thinks its course towards Mr. Blaine in this matter has been decent, ; becoming and fair, we leave it to the free enjoyment which such a conclusion must j inspire. TIIE ME FA 11L A SO—RICH A111) SOS CASE. The verdict of acquittal in the McFar ! land cast! is no surprise to the public; its [justice, however, is a question upon which i I opinions will differ. How far Mrs. Mc Farland had good cause morally to sepa rate herself from her husband, how much (hat separation was due to improper in ilucnce by Richardson and others, and j how far the separation was legal, are i questions not settled by the trial and re I suits. While with the question of fact before the jury—whether McFarland was guilty of the murder of Richardson—they were supposed to have no weight, never theless they will have much to do with public opinion as to the justiliablcncss of the verdict. Upon the point of the in sanity of McFarland caused by jealousy and hatred of Richardson, the hinge upon which the verdict is supposed to liavt tuna d, there is also the broadest ground for disagreement. We are not aecus- j tomed to see a jealous husband bottle up ■ his insanity for so long a time as MeFar- i land appears to have done, to have been sane enough to all common and partieu- [ lar observers in everyday affairs, and ! to be able to bear the constant sight , of and intercourse with the man who ! he bclived had injured him, and all at '• once burst into insanity over his wrongs. This is not the way in which jealousy usually operates. The first pang is the 1 maddening one. We can readily believe that at such a moment a man may become bereft of reason, and tired with sudden passion seek vengeance in the blood of his wronger, as Sickles and Cole did and others have done, but we have the very gravest doubts of this long suffering in sanity urged in justification of McFarland. It may be so but it looks unlikely; we do not believe the jury founded their verdict upon that theory, nor that it will be ac cepted as even plausible by the public. MRS. RICHARDSOS'S STATE ME XT. The following is an abstract of Mrs. Rich ardson's statement published in the Tribune yesterday: * \.vuw, unci i iia»c w iuiru in puuciice lor a verdict of the newspapers, of the public, and of ii New York Court and jury, I have decided that I will speak the first and last words I shall ever speak for myself. And this Is what 1 mean to do; To write as exactly as I can the whole and simple truth to the minutest detail, reserving nothing and extenuating nothing. In doing this I neither ask nor expect sym pathy or justice from the press or the public. 1 married Daniel McFarland in 1857. I was a girl of IS), born in Massachusetts, and edu cated in New England schools. 1 had been a teacher, and was just beginning to write a lit tle for the press. Daniel McFarland was an Irishman of 37 or 38, who had received a par tial course at Dartmouth College, and had. seven years before I knew him, been admit ted to the Massachusetts bar. When 1 mar- j l ied him, he represented himself to he a mem- j her of the bur in Madison, Wis., with a ! flourishing law practice, brilliant political prospects, and possessed of property to the amount of from $20,000 to $30,000. He also professed to be a man of temperate habits, of the puri st morals, and. previous to my mar riage, appeared neither intemperate, nor bru tal, nor profane. After marriage we went fir>t to Madison, Wis., being detained till Mr. McFarland could borrow money to continue his ; journey. We returned to New York in Feb- I ruary, 1858, Mr. McFarland leaving his watch and chain in pawn at a Rochester hotel to pay , bis board bill ” In less than three months after their marriage, Mrs. McFarland went ! home and for fourteen days did not hear from her husband, whom she left in New York. In answer to a telegram lie came to Mr. Sage’s, in New Hampshire, and then, for the first time, she had a suspicion that he might be in- j temperate. During the summer of 1857 Mfs. McFarland remained at her father’s, and in j the fall returned to Brooklyn, living with her : husband in two or three hired rooms, and he 1 here first began to come home intoxicated. • lie would come home sober, bringing with him bottles called Scheidam Schnapps, con taining a quart or so of the vile liquor, and he would put them by his bedside and drink mmetimufc the whole before morning. When [ begged him not to do so he said, ‘His brain j a as on fire,’ and that this made him sleep. I bis is the first time that he began to tell me tbout *11 is brain being on fire,* which was a i favorite expression with him after he had | tieen drinking, and to which so many peopls have testified to his using on his recent trial lor his life. As this was two or three months before my first child was born, and as all my i senses were nervously aecute, and as I was, also, as I believe, a woman of refined taste and feeling, his breath and whole body steam ing with the vile liquor which he drank during these nights while I lay awake beside him made him very obnoxious to me, so that be fore 1 had been married to him a year my affection for him was very much chilled—1 might say nearly destroyed. ” Mrs. Richardson then recites at length the story of her husband's increasing brutality and the poverty of their roving life umorig New York boarding houses and lodging rooms, her narrow and straightened circumstances, feeble health, and utterly deplorable condi tion. The narrative covers the time from 1850 to 18(50, and the following are among the 1 most striking incidents: “At Christmas, 1802, I was so anxious to have Percy with me, ami I lelt so hopeful "t doing well during the winter w ith the dramat ic readings which I had la-gun. that 1 sent Mr. McFarland on to New Hampshire to get Percy, who had been all this time at my lath er**. On this occasion Mr. McFarland took with him all the little stock of jewels I pos sessed—my rings, brooches, w atch and chain —which had by this time been so frequently pawned and repawned that 1 did not care for them—and sold them all in Poston. 1 hese were the last jewels I ever possessed except a plain gold ring, which is the wedding ring placed on my hand by my dead husband. Mr. McFarland was unspeakably cruel to me the fall arj^l winter of 1802 and 18(53 while we boarded at 58 Varick street. We occupied the only sleeping apartments on the parlor floor and he could give full scope to his fu ries without fear of being overheard. He would lock hiltiself into the room with me and give way to such terrible fury that only the extremest pride and self-control prevented me from making my misery known. ll« brought home what he professed was prussic acid, and threatened to take it and to force me to take it also. He would snatch my scissors from my work basket, and laying open his breast, he would brandish them about, swearing that ‘he would let out his heart’s blood’ before me. lie told me then, a shrink ing girl, that lie kept loaded pistols, with which lie would at any moment shoot me. He left one evening, declaring that he would shoot a gentleman, because lie had been invited .to join himself, his wife and anoth er lady in a party to some public picture gallery, although I had, at the most, a gener al acquaintance with the party, and refused the imitation as soon as made, (hie morn ing during this winter which I am now de scribing. alter Mr. McFarland had been out nearly all night in a drunken orgie, and had risen from bed in one of his worse tempers, I approached him as he stood by the mirror finishing his toilet, and began to say some thing soothing to prevent the outburst of his ill temper, which I feared was soon coming, when he turned and struck me a Mow across my face, which male me reel backward. From that I took an entirely different course with him. When in one of these furies I had shed a great many tears under bis cruelty.and bad tried to reason with him, and had tried entreaties and persusion ; after this, whenever lie was in one of his paroxisms, as he himself called them. I never moved nor spoke, but keeping peructiy sen-eomroiieu. as in as 1 could, 1 got quiet, always keeping my eye on him, because 1 always fancied as the longer 1 looked steadily at him he would not do me any mortal violence. And I believe now* as I believed then, that my life was saved by this silence and self-control. lie lias sometimes approached me with his hands extended, and fingers bent like claws as if he were about to clutch my throat, and cried, ‘How I should like to strangle you,’ or, ’Your life is hound some time to end in trag edy/or, ‘Your blood will be on your own head,’ and has, as I think, been restrained be cause I simply looker! at him. without raiding a word. In these furies he would often seize and break anything which was at hand—lamps, glasses, mirrors and sometimes the heavier furniture of the room. Often he would rise from bed in these uncontrollable fits of pas sion, tearing away all the bed clothing, tear ing in shreds his own night clothes, throwing anything he could find which was breakable, crashing about the unlighted room till it seemed to me there could he no pandemonium worse than that in which 1 lived; and all this he would do w ithout explanation or even a pre text for complaint against me, and when I knew no more what excited him than a babe unborn. He would sometimes keep up this conduct and this abuse for hours, without a syllable or a motion being made on my part, and he would then burst into tears, begging my pardon, say I was the best woman that ever lived, and then go to sleep exhausted. Sometimes he said, ‘Your —— silence irrita tes me more than if you talked.’ In the win ter of 1803 and *04 we were'at Mr. Sinclair’s, our neighbors. One night while there Mr. McFarland came home so bruised and bleed ing from some street brawl (a common occur rence on his part ), that I was obliged to call on Mr. Sinclair for aid in getting him to bed. It was only two or three w'eeks before the death of my youngest child, or I should not have done so. This event kept Mr. McFar land in his room for more than a week. 1 carried his meals to him myself, that his dis grace might not be seen and commented on by the boarders.” Mrs. Kichardson also narrates her efforts to support herself and her children by writing for papers and magazines ; the greater part of her earnings being appropriated by McFar land. She declined aid from the Sinclairs from motives which could not allow her to re ceive charity, and mentions McFarland’s pro curing a thousand dollars in January, 18(><>, by blackmailing an oil land owner of Penn sylvania. threatening to expose irregularities . in his income returns if he did not give him money. In the winter of 18(50 she first met | Mrs. Calhoun, and January lid. 18*57, after unusually harsh and inhuman treatment from her husband, wrote her the letter giving the statement of her wrongs, and appealing for sympathy and advice, which Airs. Calhoun answered in the letters which were read on the trial. In this Mrs. Kichardson says: “Dear—I try to write these things coldly and mechanically. 1 want to do so, so as not to be unjust, hut I must write you. I feel , that I must let you know something of my in ner life, and of the struggles that no one can see, or I shall die. 1 don't know what to do, or what course to take. 1 want to be advised. I have written these wild words incoherently. I know writing is not my natural method of expression to get some of this weight off of me, and 1 have tried to write justly. I know 1 must in some way protect myself from Mr. : McFarland’s mode of revenging any careless words upon me. I have half made up my j mind to-day to tell the Sinclairs 1 feel the en croachments of his habits, I dread my future so much, and I have my babies to think of In - side. Yesterday he drew two weeks of my salary at the theatre and paid the week’s hoard bill, and, I fear, will spend a good deal of the money, which we need so much, in liquor. Don’t come to me after reading this. I fear I shall repent writing it. Yours always. (Signed) A1111Y.” “On the evening of February 20, 1807.*’ says Mrs. Richardson, “before going to tin* theatre, I secreted his razors, his pocket knife, my scissors, and all articles I consider ed dangerous, as 1 frequently did on such oc casions, and left hiui; hut when I came home he was still raging. He frequently had made threats of committing suicide, going out of doors with that avowed purpose. On this oc casion, about midnight, he hade me an unusu ally solemn ‘eternal farewell,’ and told me that tins time he was certainly going out to destroy himself, lie had done this so many times that 1 said nothing and made no effort to detain him. At the door he hesitated, and asked if I had nothing to say in their last parting. I suid, *1 can only say that 1 am hopelessly sorry for you.* He went out and in a few moments returned, as I knew he would, cooled and sobered by the cold night air, and then, it being nearly morning, as mildly and firmly as 1 possibly could, I began to talk with him. 1 told him decidedly that 1 should leave him forever; that I had home with patience for many years great outrages from him; that he had made my life mis erable, and had often put me in great dread of my life; that 1 could not endure j it any longer; that by his outrageous conduct for the two days past, and by the language he had used when he had found me at Mr. Rich ardson's door, he had added the last drop to my cup of endurance, and that 1 should go away from him at once. On this he groveled at my feet in the most abject penitence, lie wept, sobbed, and begged me to forgive him. He confessed that he had wronged me, and that no woman would have borne with him as 1 had, and about daylight went to sleep ex hausted. The next morning 1 did not allude to my purpose, hut after seeing him leave the house for Mr. McHrarth’s office, 1 went to Mr Sinclair’s and placed myself under the pro tection of hi- roof, sind never afterward saw Mr. McFarland, except once or twice in the presence of others.” Mrs. Richardson then passes to a statement of her acquaintance with Richardson, which, before his coming to room at the same house in Amity street, had been very light and form al. “There was never,” she says, “prior to my leaving McFarland, a word, or even a look, passed between us which I should not be glad. now. ifall the world had -cell and heard.” The day that Mr. and Mrs. McFarland sepa rated, Riehard.-on told the latter, “This is a matterin which I cannot advise you, but what ever you make up your mind to do, 1 shall be glad to help you in.” “'File evening after tin* separation took place Mr. Richardson called at Mr. Sinclair’s, and stayed an hour or two With the family. When lie arose to leave, l went to the door to say what I could not say before the othcis. that he bad been very, very good to me, that I could never repay him, but that God would surely bless ldm for it. At this. Mr. Richardson, still bolding my band, which I had given him to say good by. stooped down, and speaking in a lower tone, said these words: 'I wish you to remember, my child, that any responsibility you choose to give me in any possible future I shall he very glad to take.* I think those were his exact words, and with this he went away, without a single word being spoken by either of us.” Mrs. Richardson first heard of an inter cepted letter after the first shooting, and nev er saw the Utter or knew its contents till it appeared in joint. “ The letter was a mix ture of jest and sentiment, which any one who knew Richardson would readily under stand. I shall not go on to explain it point 1»v point, but the allusion to hi- love for me being the ‘growth of years’ was simply a sen timental expression a- to a jioint of fact. I had known him only a few months, and had been acquainted with him not more than a lew months.” I Ilf If null mo I n .»!

On Octoberol. 1>6‘J. she returned to her mother’s free, and on Thanksgiving Day met Hichardson. The statement briefly pas ses over the facts of the marriage at the As tor House, and concludes with a denial of nnv desire lor revenge on McFarland, “hop ing with ail my heart that he may escape the barbarous penalty of a barbarous law.” Richardson's letter to Junius H. Browne, which was offered on tlie trial ami excluded, evinces a full acquaintance with Mrs. Mc Farland's wrongs and -offerings, and express es his most earnest determination to make her his wife when site would he free. It i s It fuller and more confidential expression of his feelings and intentions than was contained in Richardson's card that was j ublBhcd in the Tribune shortly after the lir>t shooting. The Tribune will also contain the affidavit Charles \. Richardson, executor, that the Richardson property does not amount in value to more than $23,000 or S2J.000, and that Mrs. Hichardson lias steadily refused to re ceive the benefit from any. except so much as i> necessary to t locate Richardson's chil dren. I..1XD-GRABBERS DEFEA TED. • Washington. May o. The Senate began to-day with its u-ual de- i bate upon the order of business, the perilling I question being the resolution to adjourn on the 4th of July next. The morning hour cut this short, but the discussion was soon renew ed on the motion of Morrill to take up his ap propriation bill. Mr. Howe said candidly : “Everybody knows we will not adjourn until ! we have provided for our pay.” By 28 to 26 | the Senate refused to accommodate Mr. Mor rill, and took up the bill to provide for the sale of the reservation and trust lands of the Osage Indians. Mr. Rose discoursed coolly and skillfully in favor of his amendment to sell a large portion of these lands to the rail road companies at the nominal price of twenty cents per acre. Mr. Pomeroy followed in a brief, Oily-Gammon speech for the bill, and all seemed lovely for the Indian-land lobby. At this critical stage Mr. Morrill (of Maine) rose, and proceeded to expose the enormities and frauds of the bill with a vigor, clearness, and point that were perfectly overwhelming. Hardly since the session began has so sturdy a blow been struck at the corruptionists. The hits were keen and pitiless. The land-grab bers looked as if a bombshell had fallen in their midst. Senators came over from the other side of the chamber to hear the speech, Mr. Richard Yates, even, among the number. It appeared that after this seizure of trust lands in violation of treaty at a merely nominal price, the idea was to give the In dians a new home, but the price was to come out of the proceeds of the present lands, so that possibly the Osage nation would be brought in debt. Finally the bill was passed over by 26 to 18, an indication that the bill is dead. After this there was a fresh dis cussion upon the order of business, which ended in giving precedence to Mr. Morrill’s appropriation bill.—*V. V. World. GENERAL NEWS.
