AUGUSTA.
FRIDAY MORNING, OCT. 14.1870.
GEN. ROBERT E. LEE.
The death of General Robert E. Lee,
announced in the papers, is the dec ease of
the ablest man in a military point of view
which the attempt to establish a Southern
Confederacy developed among the rebels.
The stubbornness and success with which
he maintained his ground between Rich
mond and Washington against all op
posers until the final campaign of 18Go,
are admitted by his opponents, and are
evidence of military genius of a high order.
Looking back upon the days when the
Union army was baffled in all its efforts to
reach Richmond, we sec no figure that
rises up so prominently in opposition, or
inspired so much fear and desire for his
“taking off" throughout the North, as that
of General Lee. While he stood before
Richmond we almost came to believe that
the city could not be taken, and when it
did fall it was never questioned that he
had made an able deience, the best which
any one could make with the means at his
command.
General Lee was a native of Virginia,
born of the best stock in the State, anil
was educated by favor of the L nited States
Government at West Point. In the Mexi
can war he gained a high reputation for
courage and intrepidity, and at the time oi
the secession of Virginia was in command
of the 2nd United States Cavalry Regi
ment, stationed in Texas. He was, how
ever, then temporarily in Washington, and
on the next day after President Lincoln is
sued his proclamation for the suppression
of the Insurrection against the Government,
he sent a letter to General Scott resiging
his command in the army, and in a few
days was appointed Commander-in-Chief,
with the rank of Major General, of all the
military forces of the State ot ^ irginia.
In accepting this office in convention his
remarks indicate the idea upon which he
acted. “I devote myself," said he, “to
the service of my native State, in whose
behalf alone will I ever again draw my
sword." It was the pernicious idea upon
which secession was founded, that the
State had a claim to his allegiance prior
and superior to that of the general govern
ment. On this rock General Lee sunk his
fortunes. It is useless now to argue how
he could have honestly seeu things in this
light, and not as Anderson, Farragut and
other southern men did. It remains as a
matter of record that he drew liis sword
against his country, against the govern
ment which had nurtured and educated
him, and for four years was the chief pil
lar of the rebellion. The false teaching
of the slaveholders, employed to sustain
the institution of Slavery, made him a
traitor and rebel and causeil him to put to
use his splendid talents in an ignoble as
well as lost cause. In personal appear
ance he was a gentleman. His soldiers
and officers were remarkably attached to
him, and in this partly lay the secret of
his strength. They obeyed him with alac
rity and trusted in him implicitly. If the
Confederacy had abler men within its lim
its, it had none that made a larger mark
or did so much to sustain secession as Lee.
While he was thus the most powerful
enemy the North had in the war, it is no
ticeable that his name is not mentioned
with so much bitterness among Union men
and soldiers as the names of other promi
nent rebels. He was not considered in
human or barbarous, anil his success anil
ability as a general gained him respect.
But for his turning rebel the death of
Robert E. Lee might have been lamented
by the nation and gone down to posterity
in honor.
The nomination of Mr. John Quincy
Adams by the democrats of Massachusetts
as a candidate for Governor is not at all
to the liking of those democrats led by the
Boston Post, who a few weeks ago an
nounced that he would not be a candidate,
and bowed him off the stage. They will
not shout the battle-cry of last year,
"Liberty and Adams,” with so good a will
as then, but the Young Democracy hold
the reins and the elder brethren must sub
mit. If the duplicate "of his illustrious
grandfather” gets as many votes as in 1869,
there will be much disappoint incut in one
wing of the democracy in Massachusetts.
From the returns it appears that General
Schenck is defeated by a small majority,
than whom the republicans could better
have spared some other man. Also the
independent candidate in the Second Dis
trict of Pennsylvania is elected over Mc
Neil, the regular. To offset these some
democratic districts have been carried,
but the result is not yet dear enough to al
low a definite calculation to be made. Ap
pearance* are that the republicans will be
as strong in the next Congress as at pres
ent, which is strong enough as everbody
knows.
POLITICAL.
The New York World is urging the demo
crat* to pay no attention to the recent laws to
promote fair elections.
There i* talk of nominating the lion. Hor
ace Greeley for Congress in the Sixth New
York District by the Republicans, against the
Hon. S. S. Cox, the Democratic nominee and
present incumbent. Such a nomination, ac
cording to the Standard, would give life and
enthusiasm to the contest in Xew York.
The New York Nation makes one of the
most effective political hits of the season, in
saying that in their platform “the Democrats
desire the establishment of a republic in Ire
land on the model of that of Nc# York city,
which is the first Irish republic ever estab
lished, and possesses many novel government
contrivance*.”
An active canvas* is already going on in
« for the United States Scnatorsliip
in pis™ of Jacob M. Howard. iTIie legisla
ture to be elected in November will eelect bis
successor, and the qustion enters largely into
the nominations for the body. Mr. Howard
is a candidate for re-election, and he is op
posed by Governor Blair, of Jackson county,
and William Howard, who was a representa
tire in Congress during the war.
WAR SVLISTERS.
The war enthusiasm among the German op
eratic singers is intense. Lucca, whose hus
band has been reported wounded and dead,
passes her spare time in picking lint; Nie
mann. the celebrated tenor, has joined the
Knights of St. John ; while Beck, at the head
of a party of musical confreres, boarded the
refreshment trains going to the front, and
went in person to dispense good cheer among
the soldiers.
A Wurtemburg officer writes to the Darm
stadt Military Gazette:—“It is remarkable
how the French mode of fighting has altered
in this war. They employ cavalry, especial
ly cuirassiers, for the attack, while the intan
try generally awaits the attack in strong posi
tions behind earthworks and rifle pits. This
is the cause of the enormous Prussian losses,
and of an order by the King that strong po
sitions should never be assaulted in front.
In the battle of Sedan the artillery did the
most service. The Prussian losses are not
very considerable, but the French much more
so. Mitrailleuses were not so largely em
ployed as at Woerth. Their effect at one
thousand or twelvo hundred yards is often
really fearful. It is remarkable tlint so many
mounted officers tall.
A correspondent says :—“Prominent among
others Count Bismarck is to he seen riding,
lie is a great rider. I have several times come
across him mounted on a fine charger, and
recognizable afar by his right royal appear
ance. He goes along saluting everybody,
from the peasant to the King, the picture of
royalty in himself. Yonder he conics, walk
ing his horse through the shady alleys of the
garden. There is a general clearance of the
way. “Present arms” is the cry that goes.
On this occasion he is dressed in a military
suit, in it a fine specimen of manhood, al
though one is hardly reconciled to the great
diplomat appearing in the toggery ot war.
His weapon is the pen, and not the sword.
There is every reason to believe that the three
guiding minds of the Germans are Bismarck,
Motke and the King.”
The passion with which the French soldier
respects his flag is vividly revealed in a story
of Sedan. At the moment of capitulation, a
captain, a lieutenant of Zouaves, and a brave
sergeant, resolved that the flag which had
been left in their keeping should not fall into
the hands of the Prussians. So they took the
emblem of France to pieces, one concealing
the banner under his uniform, the other put
ting the balls into his pocket, and the third
keeping the eagle. After the capitulation, it
was agreed that all the relics should be con
fided to the care of the sergeant, who, being
an Alsacian, could speak German. The
brave sergeant then managed to escape from
his captors, to don the guise of a peasant, and
to obtain a basket, in which he placed the me
morials of French glory. He then covered
the precious relics with a mass of tobacco,
which he had got from the willing peasants,
and, thus guarded against detection, he man
aged to pass through all the German lines,
and to reach Paris.

The Land Agent, Mr. Burleigh, publishes
the following article which we find in the
Bangor Whig, in reply to suggestions in some
quarters that the State is doing more for the
Swedes in Aroostook than for its own citi
zens.
In order to establish a first colony of tw en
ty-five families, it was deemed necessary to
render them some assistance, and to hold out
some extra inducements to them, by felling a
few trees and furnishing a shelter for them
'until they can have time sufficient to provide
for themselves. This assistance has, I think,
been very judiciously rendered under the di
rection of the Governor and Council. This
assistance is to be furnished for the first
colony of twenty-five families only. All
who join the colony hereafter will be
required to purchase their lands upon
the same terms and conditions as are
prescribed in Chapter 5 of the ltevised
Statutes. But in reality, these inducements
offered by the State, to this little colony,
which is intended to serve merely as a nuclein
tor peopling a portion of the wild lands of the
State, amount to but little more than those
offered under existing laws, to citizens of this
country; for this first colony must reside up
on and improve their lots of only one hun
dred acres each, for the term of five years be
fore they are entitled to a deed or title of the
lot assigned to them, and they must build their
own roads; while all other persons can have
a lot not exceeding two hundred acres each,
and receive a valid title within four years by
performing settling duties and “paying” as it
is called, fifty cents per acre, in building roads
for their own benefit. .
In answer to the inquiry “why the citizens
of Maine are not allowed the same privileges
as are allowed the Swedes,” I would say that
they are allowed precisely the same privileges,
with the exception of the twenty-five families
to which I have alluded. They could if they
would do so, purchase the land, as I have al
ready stated, at the nominal price of fifty
cents per acre, payable in making roads in the
township in which the land is situated. I he
settler is not required to make any cash pay
ment whatever. But still, strange as it may
seem, these very liberal terms have not in
duced our people to remain in the State and
the last census shows a decrease in population,
in nearly every part of the State, except in
some of the manufacturing towns.
In view of these facts, it seems to me that
the present movement to induce an intelligent
and industrious people like the Swedes, to im
migrate to, and settle on the wild lands in the
extreme Northerly portions of the State, is
wise and judicious and one that will result in
much benefit to the State.

The editor of "the Gardiner Home Journal
attended the West Gardiner Town Show and
Fair, which took place last Tuesday, and
says that he was very agreeably surprised.
Every nook and corner of the Town House,
was improved to display the rich lot of vege
tables, fruits and household manufactures on
exhibition. The show of apples he never saw
excelled, if equalled. There were 181 speci
mens ; and there was no one man who showed
over 17 varieties. Excellence rather than
quantity seemed to be the rule with the ex
hibitors. J. Emerson was awarded the
highest praise for 17 varieties, and I-rank
Wadsworth with 15 varieties came next. 1).
Fuller had 0 varieties of fine fruit and Mrs.
Currier 15. There were many other exhibi
tors, all with excellent specimens. |Two gent
lemen. whose names lie did not learn, exlii
ted ripe chestnuts; and Mrs. Currier had
ripe quinces, and one had some very nice
peaches. The butter, cheese, preserves &c.<
and the numberless specimens of ladies'
handicraft, showed that the farmers' wives
and daughters, though they may have more
accomplishments than their grandmothers, by
no means neglect the arts and habits that fit
them for heads of households. The West i
Gardiner folks claim that in the question of j
stock—especially oxen—they beat the Litch
field folks.

The Bath Daily Time* says Mr. Samuel
Jordan, residing at Xew Meadows near the
head of Great Island, discovered. Tuesday
morning, on his marsh, the body of a man,
which had been washed ashore at that place.
It bad the appearance of having been in the
water about two weeks or less and of having
been a person of about forty years of age.
The body was fully dressed excepting the
feet which were naked. The face was badly
bruised, and foul play was suspected. No
one lias been missed from that locality and it
is said that the location of the place where
the body was discovered is such as to preclude
the possibility of its having drifted in from
the ocean. The proper authorities of Bruns
u irk were notified and the body handed over
to thorn for identification.
The Whig says a farmer went to Bangor a
day or two since to obtain barrels in which to
preserve his cider, lie purchased a lot, and
upon getting them home, proceeded to rinse
them out. In one whiskey barrel, which lie
purchased at a notorious shop, something
rattled about which lie could not get out, so
taking out the head, lie investigated, finding
seventeen large plugs of tobacco, all soaked
in whiskey, which had evidently been placed
there to improve the flavor and “body" of the
liquor! Think of that, vc whiskey drinkers!
A shocking case oceasionedbv youthful de
pravity took place at Canton, Mass., a tew

died. The Coroner's jury have decided that
though she wasdiscased. her death was accel
erated by the attack of the hoys. Four of
the hoys have been arrested and sent to the
Reform School—punishment light enough for
so grievous a crime.
The Flsworth American says the tidiing
