The obstacles in the wav of Republican suc
cess in the Presidential election are acknowl
edged on all bauds to be reduced to a mini
mum. When on one side there is a declara
tion of principles that are unmistakably right,
and on the other a declaration of principles
that are clearly wrong, an issue is made up
.for the action of the people which in a civil
ized community can be decided only in one
The pleasant nature of the prospect is cloud
ed in only one respect, and that a most singu
lar one. There is no reason for ignoring the
fact that certain prominent Republicans have
left the platlorm of their own party, and taken
their stand upon that of the Democracy, so
far as financial questions are concerned. This
is most lamentable and would ultimately
work great injury to the Republican cause
were it not that the passage of a funding bill
is likely to render unimportant the question
of tlie currency in wbieb tlie debt shall be
This is the one question on wbieli tlie great
est catholicity of feeling will not endure a
difference of opinion. Its aspect as a question
of right and wrong is clearly and sharply de
fined. Senates cannot change the axioms of
morals. Individuals, however eminent, can
not make even plausablc excuses for a breach
of public faith. The government promised to
pay six per cent, interest on the five-twenties.
It promised through its authorized agents and
by failing to intimate any departure from its
immemorial usage to pay the principal in
gold. The Chicago platform, by the unani
mous assent of the Convention, declares that
the bonds must be paid in accordance not only
with their letter but with their spirit. The
man who does not abide by that platform
lacks both courage and political sagacity. The
strength a righteous principle gives to a party
is worth more in votes—if one chooses to take
that view of the question—-than can he gained
by pandering to the baser instincts of the
hordes of rascaldom.
This being the case it is simply exasperating
to see the very strongest of the Republican
resolutions utterly repudiated by a Representa
tive from Massachusetts, one from Pennsylva
nia, one from Maine and several Western
members of Congress.
It is no use to compete with Democracy in
the direction of political immortality, for they
are on their own ground Whoever supposes
that the ground of right and justice and pub
lic faith is not stronger and better, lias less
faith than we have in humanity.
Thad. Stevens as a Democrat —A touch
of iuiamy secures the instant adoption of a
man into the Democratic fold. For liis devo
tion to liberty and equal rights Mr. Stevens
lias been denounced by tlie Democracy with a
fervor never before equalled. Friday, during
the debate in the House on the funding bill,
Mr. Stevens suddenly broke out in his intem
perate way with a declaration of bis well
known views on the greenback question, da
elaring that if be did not believe that the Re
publican platform meant payment of the five
twenties in greenbacks lie would vote for Sey
mour and Blair. Thereupon Mr. Ross, an Il
linois Democrat, rose and said: “Tlie Demo
cratic doors are still open and the gentleman
can be taken in."
It is hardly probable that this arrangement
will be consummated, for Mr. Stevens has not
so iar taken leave of decency as lo endorse
revolution and tlie proscription of tlie laboring
classes in the South, hut it is curious to note
how the cropping out o! depravily in a single
direction will instantly reconcile Democracy
to a liie-time of labor in a cause which they

The Radical papers in the Third Wisconsin

The poet Whittier, writing of Schuyler
Colfax, on his nomination for Vice-Tresident,
Warned by previous mistakes, from the last
and greatest of which the country is now suf
fering, the Convention at Chicago placed
alongside of the eminent man whose wisdom,
courage, and patient persistence crushed out
the life of the rebellion, one of whose fidelity
and patriotism there can boro question—a
mau universally esteemed and beloved, and
whom we all feel may be trusted to the utter
most. In fact,the most unscrupulous detainer
of Republican men and measures, when called
upon to traduce Schuyler Colfax, like Balaam
upon Zophim, and their intended curses chang
ed into blessings.
A United States Minister to one of tbe prin
cipal Powers of Europe writes the following
to a friend in Washington:
The resolutions of the Chicago Convention,
in favor of maintaining the honor and credit
of the Government, and in denunciation of re
pudiation, direct or indirect, reflect great
credit upon that body. It has gained for the
nomination of Gen. Grant the respect and con
fidence of all who on this side of the water are
jealous of the reputation of tbe United States.
The election of Gen. Grant to the Presidency
seems to be universally admitted in Europe as
a fixed fact. His good sense, < quanimity, and
generosity of nature are well known and ap
preciated in the Old World, and they give as
surance of an administration that iviil increase
the power and influence of the United Stares
abroad and promote their prosperity and
peaceful .progress at home.
It has come to light that Democrats are a
good deal troubled because the President as
yet declines to give any sort of endorsement
of the nomination of Seymour and Blair.
Some of them have formally waited upon him
to get it, but were unsuccessful to such a de
gree that they report a very cold reception.
This being the case, more influential parties

The Republican campaign yvas inaugurated
in Rockland Friday night by the raising of a
large campaign flag in front of the Grant Club
room, the appearance of which was greeted
with enthusiastic cheers by a large crowd, mu
sic by the Rockland band, ringing of church
bells and a salute of thirteeu guns. A spirit
ed meeting was subsequently held in Atlantic
Hall. The Democrats also ran out a large
campaign flag over their club room, but there
was no demonstration.
The Chicago hatters are now engaged in fill

Chief-Justice Chase is coining to New Eng

heated term?
At least seven-eights of the towns in Massa

The Springfield Republican says: “The
senseless declaration of Thad Stevens in the
debate on the funding hill, yesterday, adds a
new element of contusion to the mixed condi
tion of things in regard to that question. If
Messrs. Butler and Stevens hail made a vow
to do all the mischief possible, they could not
behave worse. Probably Mr. Stevens does not
expect to be re-elected, but Butler does, and
we warn him that lie will have to pitch his
tent somewhere out of Massachusetts, if he
expects to go back to Co„gr„SSi uuIe8a he stops

Forney’s Press contains a very probable sto
ry to the effect that Congressman Morrissev
lately hail an old-fashioned set-to with another
pugilist named Rockey, and that the Congress
man’s eyes assumed the conventional pugilis
tic black as a consequence. The same paper
contains an improbable story that Morrissey
refuses to support Seymour and Blair and bets
his money on Grant.
In the first Minnesota district Wilkinson has
been nominated for Congress by the Republi
cans. Mark II. Dunnell, formerly of this
State, who was a candidate for the nomination,
withdrew alter the thirty-seventh ballot.
Mrs. Harris Again.—We uotice with pleas
ure the reappearauce of “Mrs. Harris” in the
columns of our Democratic neighbor, this time
iu the shape of a disaffected Republican whose
discontent is probably accouuted for by the
fact that the party does not afford sufficient
scope for dishonesty, since he wants to tax
United States bonds and pay them in green
backs until greenbacks are equivalent to gold.
It being a matter ot common knowledge that
every issue of greenbacks is followed necessa
rily and immediately by a depreciation iu the
value of the paper currency, pc hap* “Mrs.
Harris” will be kind enough to enter into a lit
tle computation as to the time that will proba
bly elapse before a return to specie payments
will be reached in he way she proposes.
The next article iu the Argus’ columns is
not from “Mr.*. Harris’s” pen, but we
wish it were, lor it would relieve our neighbor
Irom the responsibility of making very awk
ward statements. The article is a labored ref
utation of “Burleigh’s” statement in a letter to
the Boston Journal, in regard to a gentleman
who was in the Tribune office when it was be
leagnred by Gov. Seymour’s “friends” and
who covered the Governor with bis rifle as he
stood speaking to the mob in front ol City Hall.
It is a matter of history that Seymour made a
speech to the mob in the place indicated. Yet
our neighbor sa\s that Seymour never in his
lile made a speech within sight of a window' of
the Tribune office! Again the Argus says that
“Seymour never made a speech to any mob.”
The persons w'ere “citizens hastily called to
gether for consultation.” Worthy “citizens,*
these friends of the Governor! A few minutes
before he addressed them they had only been
prevented from sacking the Tribune office by
the police. At one time they bail set the Trib
une office on fire. During the four days of the
riot they burned an Orphan Asylum which
cost >200,000 dollars and afforded shelter for
200 friendless negro children. They hung sev
eral uegroes who were perfectly inoffensive
one of whom they burned. They chased negro
children through the streets with murderous
intent. They sacked the habitations of poor
negro women, and stole the furniture. During
the four days of terror raftroad communication
with New York was cut off and property for
which the city had to pay $2,000,000 was de
stroyed. These were “citizens” who were “has
tily called together for consultation” from the
grogshops and bagnios of the metropolis and
whom Seymour addressed as his “Iriecds.”
Bet Mrs. Harris bo responsible for all your fibs,
Mr. Argus, and save yourself the humiliation
of self-stultification.
“Nothing to llofuin Congress.”
A Washington dispatch says that beyond
the appropriation bills and the funding bill,
there is “no legislation of importance to de
tain Congress.” This is a mistake; there are
many things of importance to detain that
body. First, Congress ought to remain in
session till all practicable measures are taken
to restore the three Strtes of Virginia. Texas
and Mississippi to the Union and to represen
tation in the electoral college. Second, Mr.
Jenokes’ civil service bill ought to he passed.
In this case there is a direct antagonism be
tween the interests of Congressmen and their
constituents. The former would be glad to re
tain the power to reward their friends, and
they hold on with a death-like grasp to the
immense patronage that'they now control.
On the other hand, the people want the civil
service administered by ueu who have some
qualification for office beside their services in
ward caucuses. Third, the people demand
the passage of Senator Patterson’s hill for the
regulation of the foreign service on the plan
suggested by Mr. Jenckes for the civil service,
and on the same grounds. Fourth, the inter
nal revenue Jaws need a complete and system
atic revision, instead of the “short bill” in re
lation to the whiskey and tobacco tax that has
just passed both Houses. The “short hill” is
very well, but the long bill reported from the
proper committee on the same subject, or some
wise modification of it, ought to be passed.
Fifth, either Mr. Lynch’s bill tor the gradual
resumption of specie payments, or a better one
if it can be framed, ought to be passed instead
of letting the subject go over (ill December, as
if now proposed.
We have examined with great care all the
reasons that have been put forward to excuse
the failure of Congress to act on each of these
subjects. One word is all that is urged in ex
tenuation—it is hot. No doubt it is, but men
during ail last week, whose lives are certainly
as valuable as those of John Morrissey and
(fames Brooks, were laboring in the open air
for a very much less per diem compensation
tbat is received by those gentlemen.
AViio is “Cornelia?”—The Bethel corres
pondent of the Argus, we uieau, and not the
chaste and dignified Roman matron who had
the double distinction of being the daughter of
Seipio Atricanus and the mother of the Grac
chi. Her communication commences with this
Fouieroyau sentence: “Saturday, the 4th of
July, the Mongrelitus of this town and vicini
ty took a vomit.” Thus Cornelia throughout.
She says that the meeting was a perfect fizzle,
that the flag used ou the occasion was stolen
from the Democrats, that Col. Luce, the orator
of the day, “did not get a decent cheer,” and
that the ctowd refused to hurrah for Grant
and Colfax, when requested to do so by A. S
Twitchell, Esq., ol Gorham, N. H. Since the
publication of this letter, which will hardly
place Cornelia by the side of Mary WortIcy
Montagu as an epistolary writer, we have re
ceived two long communications from Bethel
and Gorham which are too long for publica
tion, stating in effect that Cornelia is another
of tint Argus’ “Mrs. Harris” corps, that “there
isn’t no such woman,” and that each of the
material statements in tile humbug letter are
as false as false can ho. Cornelia is a man iu
the same apparel with which Jeff. Davis cloth
ed himself when attempt!', g to elude the Union
soldiers, and in which so many of his North
ern friends crossed the Canadian frontier dur
ing the war. In giving his communication a
place iu its columns the Argus no doubt acted
in pursuance of its declared purpose not to
make this“a campaign of personal detraction.’’
The lllnirs.
The fallowing interesting sketch of the
Blair family we find in the Providence Jour
nal. Senator Anthony is the proprietor of
this paper, and the facts about “Silver
Springs” are no doubt within his personal
This family which lias so long reigned as the
Coburgs ol political society in Washington, is
now again, by the nomination of the younger
member of the house to the vice-presidency,
brought more prominently before the public.
The hospitable seat of the elder Blair is at
“Silver Spring,” a charming place a few miles
out of Washington, in the District of Colum
bia. There every prominent politician who
has visited Washington, who had the disposi
tion and power, or in whom it was thought to
be practicable to inculcate a disposition to pro
mote the influence of the family, lias been in
vited to spend Sunday, and such Sundays, too,
as were nowhere else to be found in the Dis
trict of Columbia. The whole family have
studied and become adepts iu the art of mak
ing such occasions agreeable. No one ever
lelt Silver Spring but with a desire to return.
The charm of the hospitalities of that place is
exceedingly fascinating. The only perplexity
which enters the mind as one leaves the place
is to know which of the aged couple that pre
side there is the greater adept in the art ol en
tertaining. Each anticipates all ot our wish
es, and nur pleasures. Each is equally full of
entertaining reminiscences. Each appears to
know what it would he most pleasing to us to
hear, with the most proper time, and to exact
ly appreciate the manner iu which it would
be most agreeable to us to bear it.
To say that this family are like a knot of
snakes, trying to charm every bird that comes
within the reach of their influence, to contrib
ute something lo their voracious appetites,
would be a harsh illustration; yet it would nut
be entirely inapt. The father loves influence.
He aspires to be the power behind the throne,
llie sons love office. They are not quite alike.

Worcester county in 1819, was a farmer,

Wkston’s Walk against Time -Time Wins.
The match for E. P. Weston to walk 50 miles
in eleven hours came off on Saturday al For
est City Driving Park. Weston commenced his
walk at five minutes pastS o’clock in the morn
ing, and after walking four hours was twenty
five minutes ahead of time. Afterwards he fell
off a little, but seemed confident he should win
and, indeed, such was the appearance of the
pedestrian that those present, or the large ma
jority of them, were of opinion that he would
do it, especially after he had made 45 miles,
and had an hour and five minutes in which to
perform the remaining five miles.
He performed the 50 miles, but was six min
utes and a half behind time. The distance
was accomplished in eleven hours six and a
half minutes, and his backer has thus lost.
This is pretty tall walking, to say the least of
it. A horse could not easily perform that dis
tance in the same time. Weston says it was
by his own indiscretion that he lost the raee>
in eating a quantity of crackers lor bis dinuei*
from the effect of which he did not get over
until he had walked twenty miles. Ho ap
peared as bright and fresh after the walk as he
did in the morning.
There were but few people present on the
course in the forenoon. But in the afternoon,
and as the time for the completion of the walk
approached, there was a very large number
present. There was no betting of any conse
quence that we learn of. The only bet that we
have hoard of was one of $100, offered about 5
o’clock, that Weston would do it, which was
immediately taken up. Weston thinks the
track is more than half a mile in length, aud
it is to be accurately measured.
Mr. Weston was present at the Tom Thumb
levee in City Hall Saturday evening, and being
called upon for a speech, said that he should
have succeeded in accomplishing his fifty miles
in eleven hours bad it had not been for a piece
of folly of which he was guilty on the 44th
mile. The exact nature of the folly was not
very clearly stated. Mr. Weston said, how
ever, that if the citizens of Portland would
make up a purse of $250, he would stake the
same sum that he could accomplish the feat
attempted on Sa'urday; if he succeeded he
would give the stakes to the poor of tho city,
and if ho lailed he would give $200 for the
same purpose. He made the additional state
ment that if it should prove upon an accurate
measurement of the track over which he
walked Saturday that it is more than half a
milf, and that he actually accompli-lied what
he undertook, he would give $500 to the poor
of the city. We are not of those who believe
that “the poor of the city” have any reason to
allow pleasant anticipations to he excited by
Weston’s propositions.
Grand Excursion to Portland.—On Wed
nesday next there will be a grand excursion of
Odd Fellows to this city, comprising the fol

Funeral of Ex-Gov. Wells.—The remains
of Ex-Gov. Samuel W ells were brought to this
city, according to a request made by him be
fore his decease. The funeral took place Sat
urday morning, the services being had at High
Street Church, where be attended when he re
sided here. A large number of relatives aud
friends were present, and the members of the
Cumberland Bar attended in a body. The ser.
vices which were solem’n and impressive, were
conducted by the pastor of the Church, Rev.
William H. Fenn, who paid a glowing tribute
to the character and worth of the deceased,
and spoke of the loss sustained by tho com
munity in his death. After the services at the
church were over, the remains were taken to
Evergreen Cemetery for interment.
Gorham’s Corner.—We are glad to see tha
some improvement is to be made in this great
thoroughfare to the Boston and Kennebec de
pots, at the junction of Danforth and Pleas
ant streets, which place has been the worst in
the city ever since the great fire in ‘GO. The
city has purchased a portion of the “heater’’at
Danforth aud Pleasant streets, which will
be thrown into the square, which, with the
widening of Fore street at that point, will
make it very convenient.
Mr. Foley is making preparations to erect a
brick block on the remainder of his lot. It
will comprise two stores, with a dwelling house
over head.

As the General aud his suite cannot leave
for New Brunswick until 5 o’clock this after
noon, they will give another levee at City
Hall at 11 o’clock this morning. On this occa

Templars of Honor.—We are indebted to
Mr.M.L. Stevens lor a pamphlet containing
the proceedings of the second annual session
of the Grand Temple of Maine, in this city on
the fltli and 10th ult. We learn from a table
at the close of the pamphlet that the number
of subordinate temples in the State is nine,
Portland, Hallowell, Bangor, Brunswick,
Biddeford, Rockland, Augusta, Bucksportaud
Eastport each having one. These temples
have a total membership of 444. In the Coun
cil Department there are four Temples, having
a total membership of 75.
Not Bad.—During the walk of Weston at
Forest City Fal k on Saturday morning, Gen.
Tom Thumb and his party were present. Com
modore Nutt, in order to let people know that
he could walk some, took a position on the out
side of the track and walked half a mile in
five minutes and fifty-five seconds. This is
pretty good walking, as long legged persons
will discover if they try it.
According to the Press, “very good lithograph
presentments of Air. Warren” were seen yester
day. A lithograph presentment is indeed a cu

As in duty bound, we feel the greatest pos

Report of the Filucatiout! Work of the
Portland Fi'CtdinniN Association.
Immediately after the Freed men’s Fair h ?ld
in City Hall in Febuary, 1866. the committee
on schools advertised for teachers to go into
the S mtbern States to engage in the work of
education. Out of a large number cf appli
cants, seven teachers were selected and sent
immediately into the South. Six of these sev
en teachers were residents of Portland. The
cost of each for salary, hoard and travelling
expenses was $500.
Besides these the Association voted to adopt
eight other teachers, who had already g.»ne in
to the field from o'her parts of the State and
whose salaries were in part paid by the
churches which had sent them out. The cost
to the association ot these was $260, for each
teacher. The Portland Freed me u’s Associa
tion. then, sustained either wholly or in part
fifteen teachers during the school year of 1865
and 1866. Our second year’s work commenced
on the 1st of September 1866. Fourteen teach
ers were sent out; most of them weie the same
who bad been employed during the previous
year and were sent to tbe same places. Dur
ing the past school year which closes June 30,
1868, nine teachers have been employed at a
cost of $4500.
The names of those teachers who have been
sent from Portland are as follows: Lizzie
Vara uni, and Hattie Webster, Almira L.
Jones, Isabelle Blanchard, Susan Dennis,
Carrie A. Hamblin. Charles A. Libby. Those
who have gone from other parts of the State
are Julia A. Lord, Helen M. Crocket, Mercie
Baker. Fannie A. Perkins. Harriet L. Harris,
Laura E. Osgood, Julia C Chase, Sarah H.
Haley, Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Don*. Besides
these, something has been paid toward tbe
support of Miss A. C. Peck ham, and Mr. A.
E. Newton, who went from other States, un
der the direction of the New York Aid Socie
We take this opportunity to bear testi
mony to tlie faithfulness^efficiency, and zeal
of these teachers, who have continued to labor
lor three years lor the elevatio.j and enlight
enment of the freed people, under many dis
couragements and privations that would have
disheartened them, had not their hearts been
wholly in their work.
The association has kept itself informed re
j-pecting the work of its teachers, by means ol
frequent correspondence with the officers of
the New York Freedmen’s Association to
which it has been auxiliary, and also through
a direct correspondence with the teachers
themselves. From most of them monthly re
ports of their schools have been sent to the
chairman of the committee on schools. Some
of the teachers have taught not only day but
evening schools for the convenience of those
who are obliged to work during the, day.
It is estimated from these »eports that over
1800 men, women and children have been
taught to read and write by the teachers that
Portland has seut to the South. It there were
time it would b • interesting to give copious ex
tracts from letters which have been seut us
both by the teachers and pupils. One or two
must suffice. One teacher writes from Staun
ton, Va., as follows: ‘T can see that our schol
ars are making good progress in their studies.
One morning la>t week I noticed a boy sitting
by the stove crying. Tasked him what ailed
him, and he replied that his feet ached; his
boots were mere apologies, his stockings full of
holes, and the poor child had frozen his toes.
It was a bitter cold morning, a light snow on
the ground, aud he had walked six miles. The
next day I sent him to the Bureau agent, who
gave him a nice pair of shoes. He is a good,
smart boy, and seems determined tohave some
learning. Every morniug, cold, stormy or
pleasant, we find him in his place, book in
hand. We asked him what time he started tor
school in the morning; he said, ‘ Well, about
sun-up.’ We take extra paius with him. We
thought if he wanted to come to school enough
to walk twelve miles every day, be was deserv
ing of it. One of our night scholars walks
four miles to his work in the morning,does his
day’s work, (he is a carpenter) aud returns at
Auother teacher writing from Uniontown,
D. C., says, “We have now four schools in suc
cessful operatioh, with an attendance of up
wards of 500 pupils. There is a usual degree
of interest manifested on the part of the par
ents and scholars, and at 'uo period in our
school history have our prospects been more
Auother writing from Elizabeth City, N. C.,
says: “Our average has been a little more than
ninety tor the month, and as a general thing
they are very punctual; some have to work
and cannot always get to school in time and
others have to stay out one or two days at a
time. But although the times are very severe,
the parents seem unwilling to keep their chil
dren out of school. They have paid $10 this
month lor tuition.”
But ihe association, while it has had tor its
main object the education of the Freedmen,
has not been unmindful of their physical
wants. One thousand dollars of its fuudswere
placed in the hands of the Ladies’ Freed men’s
Sewing Circle for the purchase of materials
tor clothing to be sent to our teachers for dis
tribution among the destitute and poorest
children and parents. These ladies have met
weekly in a room in the City Building for
three years, and bav* sent off a large number
of boxas of clothing. School and reading
books have in one or two instances been *ent,
when there seem-d to be a demand tor them.
By a special request from one of our
best teachers, a neat and appropriate
temperance banner was sent to an or
der of temperance cadets among the
Freedmen. And thus have the committee en
deavored, according to their best judgment, to
use the funds so generously contributed by the
citizens of Portland, to accomplish the great
ends for which they were given, the raising of
those ol our fellow creatures who had come out
ot bondage in a state of helplessness, poverty
and ignorance, into a condition ol intelligence,
manliness and comfort, to put them iu a way
to help themselves, to value and respect their
freedom. The citizens of Portlaud may well
be proud of having contributed to so great a
Our treasury is empty, but our work is not
yet thoroughly accomplished. We must con
tinue our work for another year. We must
renew our contributions. There is a call for
teachers in all the Southern States. There
are teachers ready to go. Our duty is as plain
as the Gospel. The words of Christ come to
us with a tone of authority, “Feed my lambs.”
Will the citizens ot Portland heed the call?
