Tbe personal feuds, resulting from the tyran
nical use of Ibdrpstronsge, led directly to tbe
final disruption of the Democratic, patty lo the
conventions of 1860, at CbarUslon and Balil
In respect to the present Administration,
there has been no design to create either per
sonal or sectional & unties, and there Ii abun
dant evidence that Its original purpose was to
conform (o approved precedents In the dis
tribution cf patronage. We do not believe that
there bas been any conscious deviation from
that purpose to the present time. In polat of
laot, however, that power ol the Government
which we denominate "loflaence," Is now large
ly used against the working men and cherished
principles ol the Republican party, anil it Is lo
this perversion of the pnblio patronsge, thai
wc may sifely attribute no small share of tbe
shortcomings of this war, and of tbat degree
ol disintegration In Ihe Republican patty
which has been manifested In the rent elec
tions. Theso constuuences are not less de
plorable, because they may have arisen from a
cours i of events which Ihe President anrl Cab
ioet could cot easily control, even If Ihetr at
tention could be exclusively given to it, which
Is manifestly Impossible amid the multiplied
aSiits of tbe preeent extraordinary times.
The election of I860 substituted Mr. Lincoln
for Ur. Buchanan In the Presidential offlcejbut
a President, howover active and decisive, Is
only a small part of the Government. Upon
our vloicus system of life offices In tbe army
aud navy, and tbe still more vicious system of
intrusting the civil administrations of the army
aud navy toregularcuicers In those controlling
brauchea uf the publlo service, our Government
bas become, in (act, ane of bureaus, practi
cally independent ol the chiefs of the Admin
btratloa lor the timo being.
It has happened in this way, and especially
because tbe outbreak cf a glg.nllc war bas
thrown such an enormous disproportion of pa
tronage into military and naval channels, that
the old Democratic dynabty la almost as sub
stantially In power to day, so far as conttol ol
Government lefluence Is concerned, and the
Republlcau parly Is about ae substantially os
tracised, as It was two years ago. The Govern
dent machine Is running now, In most par
tlculars, as It did then, and In the hands cf
tbe same men. H Is the appolaleesof the lead
ers cl secession, who still control patronsge
which dwarfs that of even the President him
seif Into Insignificance, and while they control
It ir. many lestances advereely to tbe polloy cf
tie Administration, members of tbe Cabinet are
re-trained (torn interference by the tpprebeo
sio, Uudable lu llself, but dreadfully raischlev
ous in ils ccDsf qiiencff, tbat the purity of their
motives may be brcught Into question.
This power of patronage, which has thus re
mained in the hands of tbe old Democratic
oabal, by Ibo ceurso of events led by the In
attention of the Administration, has been and
Is beicg nwl to keep la our military and rlvil
scrvico an Innumeritble host or the splee and

refusal to examine and adopt the Improvements

down this semi barbaric rebellion.
It la easier to point out evils than lo point
out their remedies. But tbe evil In this case Is

The following extraots from Macauley's assay
on Lord N agent's Memorials of Hampden ap
pear to prsssnt more than one point of resem
blance to matters which have transpired In our
own country) and the military errors of Essex
seem not unlike the errors of some of our gen
erals. Tho closing part, describing Rupert's preda
tory expedition, Is so nearly like the'late raid
of Stuart, as to strik the most casual ob
server: There was."lnfaot. for tome time, no great
and connected system of operations on either
side. Tbe war of the two parties was like the
war of Arlmanes and Ormaydea, neither of
whom, according to the lrutcrn theologians,
hies any exolusive domain, who are eauallv
omnipresent, wbo equally pervade all spsce,
who earry on their eternal strife within every
particle of matter.
There was a petty war In almost evory coun
ty. A town furnished troops to the Parliament,
wniio me manor ooaseor ine neigoDormg peer
was garrisoned for the King. The combatants
were rarely disposed to march far from their
own homes.
It was rsserved for Fairfax and Cromwell to
terminate tbls desultory warfare, by moving
one oreriMefmlnaorce euecssalvefy against all
the scattered fragments of the royal parly.
it is a remaraaoie circumstance, enai me
cftlcers who had studied tactlrs In what wore
considered the best shools under Vere In tbe
Netherlands, and under Quatavus Adolpbns In
Germany displayed far less skill than those
commanders whe bad been bred to peaceful
employments, ana wno never saw even a sxir.
mlsh till the civil war broke out.
An uolearned person might hence be inclined
to suspect that the military art la no very prq
found mrsterr: that Its principles are the nrln-
oiples of plain, good sense; and tbat a quick
eye, a cool head, and a stout heart will do more
to make a general than all the diagrams of
Jomlnl. This, however. Is certain, tbat Hamp
ton showed nlmselr a far better omoer than
Essex, and Cromwell than Lesley.
Tbe military errors of Essex were orobabty.
in some decree, produced by political timidity.
He was honestly, but not warmly, attached to
tbe cause of tbe Parliament; and, next to a
great acjeai, ne areaaea a great victor;.
Hampden, on the ether hand, was tor vigorous
and dsolalve measures. When he drew lbe
sword, as Clarendon has Well said, be threw
away the scabbard. He had shown that he
knew belter than any publlo man of his time
how to value and how to practice moderation.
But he knew that tbe essenoe of war is vln
lanoe, and that moderation lu war Is Irabo
o Illy.
Oo several occasions, particularly during Ito
operations In tbe neighborhood or Brentford,
he remonstrated earnestly with Eiscx. When
ever be commanded separately, tbe boldness
and rapidity of his movements presented a
striking oontraat to tbe sluggishness of his su
perior. In the earlv Dart of 1613. the shires ivlnir in
the neighborhood of London, whloh were de
voted lo the cause oi ine f aruament, were in
cessantlvvennoved by Rupert and his cavalrv.
Essex had extended his lines so far.tbat almost
every point waa vulnerable.
The vouog Drlnce.w ho. though not a great gen
oral, waa an active and enterprising partisan,
frequently surprised posts, burued villages,
swept away oatile, and was again at Oxford
before aoroe sufficient to encounter him oould
be assembled.
In the evening of the 17th of June. Rupeit
darted out cf Oxford with his cavulry on a pre
datory expedition At three In the morning of
ine following aay, ne attacgeu anu aispersea t
few parliamentary soldiers, who were quarter
ed at Pcstcombe. He then flaw to cnlnnor
burned the village, killed or took all Ihe troops
wno were posted mere, ana prep erea in nurry
back with his body and bUprlaonersloOxlorr.
.Hampden had on tbe preoeding day strongly
represented to Ksox the danger to whloh this
part or tbe line waa exposed. Aa won as he
received Intelligence of Runerl'a Incursions.

time, he resolved to set out with all the cavalrv
be could rauator, for the purpose of Impeding
toe marco oi ene enemy uu e.ssex coum lake
measures for cutting r u" ibefr retreat.
On the field of Uhalcrove be came un with
Rupert. A fierce skirmish ensued. In too Ant
oharge Hampden was struck In the shoulder
by two bullets, which broke the bone, and
lodged In bis body. Tbe trooDa of tbe Parlia
ment lost heart and gave way. Rupert, after
pursuing them for a short time, hastened lo

P, T. Ilarnnm to Use Public.
An old "dodge" among showmen, Indeed, also
amorg politicians and some other olasses, Is
f jr an obscure or low and degraded Individual to
attack and engage In a pnblio controversy some
person or party wooes position is soon mat ahy
reply will secure the object desired, vizi give
tbe assailant notoriety by attracting publlo cu
rlcslty towards him.. 'A wise sun usually re
frains from nolloing such notoriety hunteas,
especially If their antecedents are such as TO
romlnd him of the truth of the old adage, "von
cannot handle pitch without being denied.,''
aula consideration, ana inn aione, lea me in
mr former oard to say that I declined entering
into a newspaper warfare with James M. Nixon,
wao had already attacked me In sourrllous
nerscnal enlthsts. such as "humbug." "Yankee
clock speculator," Ac At tbe same time, one of
Ur. Nixon's writers was boasting that this was
done merely to get up an excitement and make
money I
But Mr. Nixon's attack of thu morning dis
closes such a depth of moral depravity, and Is
characterised with such virulence, tbat I feel
it my duty to the publlo to give some of the
reasons why I preferred not to aid him In his
strife for notoriety, while I shall at the same
time hope tbat a plain statement of a few facts
concerning him, will expose such a depth of
moral turpitude as to prevent his turning Ms
oirn degradation to a profitable notoriety I
I bear this man Nixon not the slightest Ill
will for suoh a man is beneath ountempt but
what I have to say is lor tbe jiuoiic oooei.

ixon says did not sell, bnt which the pub
Usher will testify did sell to the number of
eignty-nve tnnusana. uverone nunarea thou
sand copies of the same book were sold InEng
land by three different publishers, and Urge
editions In Frenobj Herman and Dutob were
published and sold in Paris, Lelpslo and Am
sterdam. In that book Is the whole story of
"editorial Incarceration," aa well aa those of
tbe mermaid, woolly none, Ae., from whloh
Mr. N. la at liberty to draw for his future at
tacks. Every one of ordinary intelligence
knew full well tbat the woolly horse was adver
tised by my sgent as a curiosity, to be sure,
yet not altogether as such; for making it tbe
feature, as I onoo did, of my Museum, It was
moro Intended, as the intelligent publlo at the
time understood It, and as Mr. Nix n oould not,
as a way ui auveriiHiug tun oiaer, yei more
valuable attractions in rayoolleotion. This Is.
however, tbe first time that Iwaseverohargsa

Nixon always carries his writers with him,
nnd thev are here with him now. 'f he fooliflh
falsehood, tbat I did not pay tbe man whom I
sent to tturope ior jenny i.ina, is answerou by
the fact that I gave him for his Bervices ten
thousand dollars in oash and a servloe of plate,
ana noia ms reoeipe in mil, ana suusequenuy
loaned him fifteen hutidred dollars, fur whlob
I hold his noieB or band, and which I will sell
for twonty cents on the dollar. In fact, no
living being ever did or can say truly that 1
ever failed to pay In full every cent I oaed
him, except Inthe case of tbo " clock swindle,"
where, the Dubllo knows. I was fraudulentlv
drawn into a liability for more tban seven bun
dred thousand dollars, for which I never re
celvrd one farming, but lo pay which I gave
up to assignees every species of properly
ubioh I possessed on earth, and that it waa all
Mold and devoted lo cancel those utilnsl and
strictly illegal demands. But this man, Nixon,
IB n notorious onnKrupi, sua inaieqa (i paying
hla employees, as he pretends, be owes them,
and alwaja will, many thousands of dollars.
While writing my oard yesterday. K.la Z H'.tr.i.
the clrous rider, stood by my side, lend stiled
that bo (or Bbe) had come to Washington to
seek employment from me, and lhatNixon oa ed
blm lor ner,) ior services, mere man lieo tiou
sand dollars, of which, wllh a thorough knowl
edge or bis (Nixon's) character, he (or she)
had not Ibe slightest hope of gelling a dollar.
That, last spring, actuated by tbe hopo of get-line-
u email Dortion of his back Day. he under.
took to retrieve bis fallen fortunes at Nixon's
"Cremoroe" then known aa tbe "Palaoe
Gwdeu" and tbe result of this venture was,
that, after Inrre torrfcs' sernices, he secured
from Mr Nixon, tbe munificent sum of seven
dolmrs, and nothing more. This person, Ella
Zi.va.ra. Is tbe same wbo was oald. for hla
services In this olty last season, lira hundred
dollars per weea.
L,st week, tbe guardian of the Baltimore
dwarfs, now exhibiting by Nixon, stated lo me
nrf ftihsra that Nixon owed blm for their see

again to ftixon, ii wouia oe in ine nope or get

Mr. Nixon is now operatlrg upon varlnni

cumulated from the publlo of Washington It

says tn h'a advertisement, make " permanent"
an institution hurtful and obnoxious to all tbe

Now a word about Ibis moral man who telks
r,rihlngs"bjpocrtlloa."and "infamous," He
dlsolalma being an "adventurer" or an ltlne
rant, and saya he Uvea In New York. The
truth Is, his poor deserted teiii and children
live in New York. Ills wife bus been his
faithful, devoted, and honest, bard working
companion for years. But during tho phut
summer it has become a matter ol public i,o
toruty tbat he has forsaken hla wile and chil
dren, for a publlo danreuse, and I assert tbat It
Is only within tbe laat mouth tbat Nixon's poor
derertod wife sent to me a request to take bis

daughter is note engaged at my Museum.

ThcBe statements are due to tbe Washington
publlo, in order to Have them from a moat out
rageous and despicable Impnstuie, They are
truo tn the letter, und are made with n full
knowledge of my responsibility. I am ready
and anxious to verify them whenever Mr.
Nixon may dare hold up his head and deny
them. 1 regret to bo oailed upon to dlsoharge
this pnblio chili, and I do It only because driven
to it by the reckless attacks of a man for whom
I have no feelings, except thoso ofjuly.
This la but a small portion of Mr. Nlxou'a un
published history but I trust it is enough for
tbe present, to serve as an answer to his oal
umnlous attack upon me, by showing to what
