Final Conclusions The " Union " and Its Editor in the Case A Great Victory "Enthusiastic Ebullition,-" etc. Sacramento (Cal.), August 26. Before finally malting a start over land, and what with other matters, I concluded to stop over here and wit ness one of the representative meet ings of the present political canvass for State officers, and now rapidly nearing a close the election coming off September 6th. It is safe to say that the affair of last evening, in the waj of the vanity and vexations in politics, was a gor geous success. 1 have expressed a dislike to these things, and a doubt as to their absolute necessity ; but if they must be, why the bigger and louder the crowd and noise the better. In view of the facilities afforded by tele graph and type, for reading and di gesting in quiet all that is fresh on the political tapis, the average statesman, when he struts into the business of platform enunciation, isn't much less than a public nuisance abatable by law. Privately, he should be tied to his stump and the whole set on fire. The thousands of men, women and children that were justled about in the streets last night, losing the usual rest required, was illustrative of the point. It was not uninteresting, how ever, to listen to the whistles of the coming trains from the Sierras, from Marysville, from Yallejo, Stockton and Shingle Springs, and the recep tion they met in the way of artillery flying about from one depot to an other, the music and Ithe shouting. Then the tramp, tramp of the pro cession, with torches, transparencies, etc. Then the herding into the street corral to receive with mouths Avide open, the mess of rechewed feed and wind; the women and misses, with heads and feet exposed from hundreds of windows and balconies lending for the time a life-like appearance to the architecture surrounding, in bold re lief. Then the slobbering about the saloons, and after midnight, the re forming necessary to the return home. It was the occasion of Newton Booth's speech, with others, at his old home. Owing to the great crowd, there was nothing to all this except a great dis play and confused noise. Booth is not a great man at all, but is a much abler one than his opponent Henry H. Haight, the present gubernatorial incumbent and the 'probabilities arc, as before stated, that the Republican standard bearer will be elected by from 3,000 to 5,000 majority. Now, a word here about these men who brought them thus before the public, and why. The agony of the day is the anti-subsidy policy or re fusal to grant further aid and comfort to all monopolies, but particularly railroads that has been manufac tured almost single-handed by The Sacramento Union, Avhose " thunder ing " emanates from the brain and pen of Samuel Seabough, and has been heard unceasingly and until it is heard all round the sky. In fact, it has become political infamy if not death to all who attempt the roll of Ajax and defy. ,the blinding flash of this newspaper chain-lightning. I have watched the. thing boil for the past three years, and it has not been an in significant study in State politics. In short, The Union's attacks on the Cen tral Pacific Eailroad Company have really seized, upon the nation itself. This paper has walked over the track with a great war-club, as it were, mashing one head after another in either party, until it has nearly com pleted its mission on this score ; for I repeat that a reaction will follow all this, and I think soon after the com ing election in this State, though it is not probable the corporations will ever again have so open a field as in the past. But to the point. The Union deliberately defeated the Re publican ticket in 1867, and elected Haight. It has as deliberately re nominated Haight, in the face of every Democratic opposition, and then came out in a loud " leader " entitled " Vic tory Number One." It then took up Booth, and in spite of all Republican opposition, nominated him, and fol lowed with its " thunderer "of " Vic tory Number Two." Now, it firmly believes it will have the pleasure, of announcing a fortnight hence, in still louder tones " Victory Number Three!" Who is this man behind the scenes, more powerful than thi mass of the popular talent of the State, with the great accumulated wealth combined? Samuel Seabough, a native of Penn sylvania, and one of the most agreea ble conversationalists and pleasant gentlemen to meet in California ; the " heaviest " political writer, and one who can do the most of it and enjoy it. His smooth-shaven, intelligent face, bright eye, and generally prepos sessing person, with human weak nesses and his own worst enemy, are the chief characteristics of his outline in every day life. The slight lisp in his speech seems to set it off in a fas cinating way rather than otherwise. Liberal to a fault, and a pleasant good word for whoever, high or low, may have ought to say to him. He has the world's affairs philosophized down to a scratch, and when his pen drops from the harness, he will turn the final corner of it all with a joke, and the obituary and his reward will all be summed up under the caption (per chance "small-cap" head) of "A Prominent Journalist Gone." But the work of such men never die, though their bodies may have often suffered for the common necessaries, and the dirty world they instructed or amused, may refuse them decent sepulchre. It is curious to contemplate the life of an able and well fixed newspaper. Last week several . hundred men of means in Sacramento protested pub licly by signature against the course of this paper toward the Central Pa cific people. The Union treated them with scorn, and already their effort is good as forgotten. It looks over the entire field for its sustenance, and will flourish when its founders as well as its enemies are all dead and gone, and forgotten. I like to meet Seabough when he has any leisure at all, and night be fore last I besieged him in his den. Talked over the Apache question, etc., and got his private opinion of the po litical mill here. He has always a dis tinctive way of expression can state a common subject in a new" light, the want of which qualification is so gener ally observed among even leading speakers in public. He said that this excitement about Booth was not worked up by money, but was a " spontaneous ebullition of enthusiasm," and there fore would do to bet on. This morn ing's paper comes outwith a " leader" using the words quoted, and in con nection with the monster meeting last night, it certainly has a significance not generally felt through these means. There is but little gambling on the result as yet, though s far as the papers show, the odds are offered by the Republicans, who are as united as ever they are, and working at least up to the ten-hour law system in this case, though both platforms are sub stantially similar on all questions. " Platform jugglery," as The Tribune calls it, is as broad in- the one as the as the other ; both parties stultifying their records in important features al together amusing, and more or less disgusting. But that is the old thing, to a certain extent. To recur to The Union again. I picked it up not an hour ago at break fast, and was completely sickened by the report or rumor (hope, it is such only) telegraphed up here, from Los Angeles, that General Crook had been killed ! Knowing bis style so well, of hunting and fishing, etc., at intervals, when every other man would be tired to death almost, I took occasion at Tucson to just give him " a talking to " on the subject, and I have watched with bated breath every word about him since. He has had such a long experience of frontier life exposing himself to all its dangers wherever or whenever duty in the least demanded, besides never letting a reasonable op portunity pass whereby he could a d this knowledge of wood craft, that he may have overstepped the mark at last. Still, I won't believe it till com pelled to. It is sad enough to go East on account of another death in the family, and this good man was once almost a father to me, and the con firmation or contradiction of his death must follow instead of accompany me. W. VINCENT COLYER REPORTS. The following telegraphic news reaches us via The San Diego Union, which by the way always contains the latest important news from all parts of the world. The report of Agent Piper is mainly true, and we suppose he meant to be truthful, but the run ners undoubtedly misrepresented some points to him : "Wasiungtojt, Sept. 4. Vincent Colyer has written a letter to the Sec retary of the Interior, dated Fort Craig, New Mexico, 22d August, in which he says he had several interviews with messengers from Cachise, but they gave no satisfaction, and chances of bringing that chief to "Washington are very slight. He appends the following to his lettter : Canada Alamoso, August 21. Nathaniol Pope, Esq. Dear Sir: Mr. Trijillo has just got in, without seeing Cachise. He says he very unexpectedly met General Crook, who ordered him back, and refused to rec ognize his authority to go to Cachise's camp, and threw his letter down in disdain, saying that the Superin tendent of Indian Affairs in New Mexico, or any of his agents, had no authority to send parties into Arizona ; that his instructions authorized him to capture any American or Mexican found in his route. He also says they attempted to arrest his Indians, but Lieutenant Ross knew Saco, and in terceded for him. Crook would not let him get his rations, which were some distance from where he met the party. The General said they were lucky to get back with there lives, without rations. If you return here, I think the affair should be investi gated further. Yours truly, C. F. PrrEit. "When we declare that no attempt was made to arrest said Indians, we declare what Ave know to be truth, and although Ave have no information on the matter about the rations, Ave feel justified in denying that part of the report. General Crook did inform those runners that he could taKe care of the hostile Indians in his Depart ment, and to so inform their employers. He Avould not permit them to be harmed, but did inform them if they returned to Arizona to interfere Avith his clearly defined duties, that he Avould not be responsible for their lives. "We are too avcII acquainted Avith General Grook to believe that intercession of any subordinate officer Avould change his purpose, because his purposes are always based upon a clear perception of duty and his OAvn high sense of justice. The reports about the rations are absurd and Ave have no hesitancy in pronouncing them false. As aAvhole, the report is a good ono to go before the country, and Vincent Colyer did right in making it. It Avill all the sooner bring to a close the bad policy of having the military or dered to punish hostile Indians, and the civil authorities ordered to make the task impossible, by calling in, feeding and protecting the blood thirsty savages Avhich the military are justly pursuing.
