The Alabama Claims and Canadian Question-Secretary , . Seward's - Temporizing with Eng- .. land-Affairs : on 'the . Continent, E(., EU?., Et., Et. Etc., Etc. By an arrival yesterday at New York we have European advices to the 12th lust. " ENGLAND. 1 ': The AlabMnn-Clalm Settlement. Tbe N. T. Hera'&s London corresponded writes on the 12th instant: Tbe rumors which have been floating about In diplomatic circles lor some lime past in regard to the Alabama claims have at length taken a definite tortn. A Liverpool paper announces, with some show of authority, that Mr. Beverdy Johnson has been instructed by Secretary Seward to settle the Alabama claims in his own way and npon any basis that may bo satisfactory to him self, and that all previous communications fron the American .Department of Siate are to be considered as cancelled. In order that there may be no misapprehension about this Impor tant matter. I quote the paragraph In full. It is from the Liverpool Mercury, and reads as follows' !We have great plea tore In bidding oar readers look or e speedy termination ot lUe AlaoamaditH.ulty. We are Inlurmtd thai Mr. Reverdy Jubnson, tbe new Knvoy from tbe Unittd Utates, bas received Instroo- tlone irom mr. nnw.iu m.. ii.dih uu uwuu menls hitherto Issued with repard to tbe Alabama aneetlon beve been cancelled by bis Government, in ib further authorised to make euoii terms with n. nn Unnrnment u be think! III. Tbe Bulrlt In wblch be will enter upon the undertaking was abundantly shown by his speech at BueOleld. Here you have the entire secret of tbe com plimentary reception of Mr. Beverdy Johnson 4 in England, tbe flatteries that Lave been lavished npon him since ho came here, and tbe simultaneous outburst of tbe London papers when Roebuck displayed Brit It, b. sentiment in its true colors at tbe Sheffield dloner. Minister Thornton, at Washington, had a hint of this before Mr. Beverdy Johnson left the United States; he communicated it to his Government In a despatch, carried by special messenger, and a hint from Lord Stauley gave the journals here the key-note for tbe chorus of laudations whlcn announced Mr. Johnson's appointment. Since then the same eame bas been played, and very well played; and Mnitter Johnson's speech at Sheffield shows, I am afraid, thai he has fallen Into the trap. . The Court Breeches Difficulty Ended. Minister Johnson has removed the United States Legation at London to No. Portland place a very fashionable location. lie had an lnterv ew with Lord Stanley immediately npon the return of tbe noble Lord irom Switzerland, and he is to present his credentials to the Queen on Monday next, her Majesty having arrived safely at Windsor from her loreign tour. He is to be received In plain evening dress, all the ordinary court regulations having been set aside for bis express accommodation, although Minis ter Adams never felt strong enough to infnuge them or to ask their suspension. All this means simplv the settlement ot tbe Alabama claims, and one Minister is treated differently from tbe other because Minister Adams was locked upon as the opponent of England, and Minister Johnson is regarded as England's Iriend. Secretary Seward Working Mischief. Secretary Seward is manoeuvring most danger onsly in this matter, as well as in his dealings with Canada, and unless the American public are aroused in time they will find tbe Alabama claims abandoned and tbe nation cheated out of lis just lights. Tbe errer of the Trent affair will be repeated, and repeated under much less favorable circumstances. The United States have tbe power, and I believe that the people have the will, to secure the payment by England of the A'abama damages in full; but under the manipulation of Secretary Seward and Minister Jobnfcon It is evident that England is going to get the beet of the birgain. aid that a settle ment will be made Dy watch all the American claims will be sacrificed. I have hinted at this Btflte ot ail airs Detorej but I no at assert it most dwinctly. Of course, it Is desirable that England and the United States should be on good terms; but tbe only acceptable bans of their amity ought to be mutual justice. The talk about a common origin and a common literature is all humbug mere dust that the English journals try to throw into the eves of the nation that England has robbed. The fellow who pioks your pocket o breaks into your house may have a common origin with yon, and may be Just as fonl of tbe English literature; but is that any reason why he should not be punished for his crime and forced to refund tbe property he has stolen f England occupies this criminal, this burglarious position, and her whining about a common origin cannot help her to escspe. But Secretary Seward and Minister Johnson can help her, and they are doing it. The Alabama claims ought never to be settled, except upon payment in hard cash on the part of the British Government. That la the only way: to settle them in Minister Johnson's way la injurious and disgraceful to Americans. I ask prompt attention to this subject on the part of the American people, and I warn them that Secretary, Seward's policy is an amicable and disastrous compromise. . .. . London Opinion of Xapoleon'e Plans'. The London Saturday Review observes' that the French imperial statecraft has been ot that over.clever sort which bas left the nation with out a Iriend in Europe. It is not merely, it gays, that the French Government, In spite of its unselfish professions, consults nothing but its own interests that perhaps is a fault which is shared by most European powers It is that the interests of the Government are not iden tical with those of the coun'ry, and that, consequently, they do not admit of being cal culated upon by ouUiders. We can estimate, wit h some approach to accuracy, the course which Austria, or' Italy,' or Prussia, or even Busiia, is likely to follow under given circum stances. So far are we from being in a similar position with regard to France that, with the' history of tbe last fifteen years open before us, it is impossible to give any intelligible ex planation ot much that the Emperor has done. BELGIUM. Tbo International Labor Congress The Bruf sels correspondent ol the N. T. Herald tavs, on the 10th instant: The acticn of tbe Congress in relation to the resolutions concerning war aud standing armies has already been telegraphed.' Tbe majority seemed to ieel that they bad as little power to decide anything relating to that question as to fix the courses of tbe stars, and so, much to the relief of all Draclical men, the matter was speedily dropped. Next came tbe question of strikes and courts of arbitration, ana upon mis aty working man Is certainly capable of form in and rvnreusinir an ODlnlon.

The following letter from General W. T. Sherman, dated St. Louis, September 6, and addressed to O. T. B. Williams, Cheyenne, Wyoming, appears in the Cheyenne Start-' 1 Lear Sir: la my hurried departure from Fort Sanders I was unable to stop long enough to see you aid talk over matters. I was a member of the Peace Commission concurred with it in some respects, but differed with it In others; and vet. bv an executive order, was required to conform my military action to its decisions'. There were some members of that Commission from civilians, and -then army omcers. we nat orally regarded the questions which arose from our respective standpoints, but in our conclusions were generally of one opinion. i Prom the very origin oi our government mo Indians have been held to possess a certain title to the lands held by them, for the surrender of which the general Government has always treated and made compensation. We found the Cheyennes, arapahoes, Klowaa, and Sioux in possession of tbe plains traversed by our great highways, and we proceeded to treat with them all In detail, and made with them treaties by which tbey agreed to surrender to us substan tially the vast region now embraced in Ne braska. Kansas. Colorado, and Wyoming. and to remove and permanently occupy reserva tions. North and Soutb, described lu my General Orders No. 4. To accomplish their removal Congress has placed in my hands certain moneys which 1 shall disburse for that sole purpose, and when Indians have failed to act in good faith they shall receive nothing from me. All Indiaus are lawfully under the control ot the In terior Department, by and through civil agents, !)ut that department Is extremely jealous of aoy uterlerence by tbe military, so that our officers and soldiers have no right to anticipate Indian hostilities, but can only act against ludians after the commission of hostile acts. In all the treaties by the Indian Peace Commissions was a clause of doubtful wisdom, viz., leaving the Plains iDdiaoa the right to hunt buifalocs as long as they lasted, outside their reservations. Without this condition it was contended no peace could be concluded, and though the mem bers varied In opinion, this confession was made by a decided maority and tried on, as long as the Indians maintain peace. Bat as they have broken the peace I have ordered the military lo renew their efforts to remove to their proper reseivations all Indians who have not been drawn into war, and to kill, destroy, and cap ture all who have been concerned in lbs rouent acts of hostility. Nearly all the people ou the plains, even the Govertors of tbe Sta'ea aud Territories, who ought to know better, seem to have an Idea that I have a right to make war and peace at pleasure a right to call oat vol unteers and pay them, and 'to do more in this connection than any monarch of a constitu tional klugdom. I possess none of these- powers. The regular army is provided by Congress, and but a small portion ot it is assigned to my com mand. With this small force I am required to protect the two rail real", the Missouri river, the various stage routes, amounting In tbe aggregate to over eight thousand miles ot travelled road, besides tbe incidental protection ot tens of thousand of miles of frontier settle ments. Each of these settlements exaggerates its own Importance and appeals for help, from ilinne'ota to Arkansas, and Irom Mon'.ana to V Mexico, Wcx I to iraat tea n;a There a hundred are called for onr little army would be eo CHitered as to be of little or no use. With this small force In the last two years I have done as much as any reasonable man could hope for, and if aoy man be tucredulous, let him enlist in my company, and he will soon And out if he dont earn his pay. as to the frontier settlements, I have again and again warned the Governors and the people that until this Indian matter was finally con eluded their people should not spread out so much. Their Isolated farms, with horses and cattle, are too tempting to hungry and savage bands of Indians. If, however, they will not be restrained by roo'lves of prudence, tbe peoplo should, as they used to do In Ohio, Kentucky, Iowa, and Missouri, make their settlements in groups, with b'ock-houres and a sod fort, so that when tbe savage comes they may rally and de fend themselves and their stock. It is a physical impossibility for the small army we all know kind Congress maintains with yearly threats of further reductions, to guard the exposed settlements of Kansas. Nebraska, Dacotah, Mormon, Wyoming, Colorado, aud New Mexico. . These States and Territories must, by organizing their people into a sort of militia, be prepared to defend Iheir exposed settlements, aud to tollow up and destroy the bands of marauding Indians and horse thieves, both red and white, that now infest them, and carry on a profitable business. The army cannot do u any more than we can catch all the pickpockets and thieves in our cities. Clamor on this subject against me or G neral Augur or General Sheridan is simply folly. We do onr duty according to our meant, and account to our superlois, aad not to the people who neglect our advice and counsel. If you think this will be ct anv service to the border people, I have no objection to its use. W. X. SHERMAN, 'Yours, truly, Lieutenant-General. GENERAL BIX. He Supports General Grant and Do i nounces Meymotir. . General Dlx, the American Minister to Paris, has sent the following letter to a friend in New York. It was not written for publication, but tbe gentleman to whom it was addressed has consented to give it to tbe public: IPiris, Sept. 4, 18G8-My Dear Sir:-It was my hope that my distance from home would have saved me from all participation in the political excitement prevailing there. But I notice in one ot the newspapers that I am heatt and band with Mr. Seymour. I am not aware of aoy thing la the prebent or the past which could rightfully subject me to such aa imputation. 1 1 have been acquainted with Mr. Seymour more than a quarter of a century. He is an amiable gentleman, of unexceptionable private character, and respectable talents. But yon know as well as I that he has not a single qualification for the successful execution ot the high official trust to which he has been nomi nated, and he is especially dedcient in that firmness of purpose which, in critical emergen cies, Is the only safeguard against public disorder and calamity. He has been twice" at different times Governor of the State of New York, and he has in neither case had the talent or the tact to keep the Democratic party of the fcta'.e together more than two years. I should regard his election at this juncture, wben steadiness of purpose, decision and self-control are so much needed, as one of the greatest calamities that could befall the country. Moreover, he has been put in nomination by a Convention which has openly declared the purpose of those it represents to pay tbe greater pnrt of the public debt, con tracted to preserve the Union, In depreciated Saper. Such a measure would. In my judgment, e a palpable violation . of the public faith, pledged under circumstances which should have been binding on all honorable men. Mr. Sey mour bas made nnblte sneache toettow that it la our duty to pay the debt iu specie. In accepting bis nomination to the Presidency he adopts the declaration that it ought to be paid in paper. I know nothing bo humiliating in the history of American politics as this tergiversation. It was, perhaps, not unfit that Mr. Seymour, after presiding, in 1864, over the Chicago Convention, which declared tbe war a failure, should preside over the Convention of 1808, in which a propo sition to discredit the debt contracted to carry on the war was received with "tremendous cheering," and that be should be tbe chosen instrument to execute this act of national turDitude. 1 do not believe that the wishes or opinions ot tbe great body of the Democratic party are fairly expressed in these proceedings. They have nothing . in common with the statesmanlike views of policy and the high sense of national honor which guided tbe party wben Martin Van Buren, William L. Mnrcy, Silas Wright, Lewis Cass, and Stephen A. Douglas were among Its most conspicuous members. I see but one source of safety for the country under existing circumstances, and that is tbe election of Genera Grant. - In bis decision of character, good sense, moderation, and disinterested patriotism, I be lieve the South will have a far better hope of regaining tbe position In the Union to which it is entitled, than under a man whose political career has been in nothing more conspicuous marked than in an utter infirmity of purpose. . Independently of all these considerations, I should be greatly surprised if the people of the United States were to elect as their Chief Magis trate a man who was making, at the Academy of Music, on the 4th of July, 1863, a speech ded cient in all the characteristics of an elevated love of country, at the very hour when General Grant was carrying the victorious arms of the Union into Vicksburg, and when thousands of our fallen countrymen were pouring out their blood on the plains of Gettysburg, in defense ot tbelr bomes and the Government, which Mr. Pes mour was doing all in his power to embar rass and discredit. I am quite willing that yon should show this letter to any friends who may take an interest in my opinion in regard to the coming election, and I am particularly desirous of removing the impression, if it exists, that I am in favor of Mr. Seymour, or the repudiation of any portion of the public debt. I am, dear sir, very truly jours, John A. Dix. THE TURF. Tbe IToaton florae, John Stewart, Trota Twenty Allies luslda of On lloar. Yesterday one of the most Important trotting matches against time ever attempted on the American turf came off ou the Fashion Course, L. I. Tbe match in question was made at the recent Nan agansett race meeting, when a well known sporting man of Boston, lor a wager ot 92000 to $1000, backed bis gelding John Stewart to trot twenty miles, to waon, within the hour. This feat bad never be'ore been accomplished, for although Flora Temple and General Butler both essayed to do it, they failed In the attempt. Tioiting twenty miles in harness within tbe hour had been done on lour occasions by Trustee, by Lady Fulton, by Captain McGowan, and still more recently by the horse that now essayed the more difficult task to wagon, )ohn Stewart. It was considered, taking into con sideration the disadvantages of going to wagon as compared with going in harness, a leal almost Impossible of achievement: hence the odds of 20tio to $1000 that the backer of time, Mr. John Chambers, propriet or of the Fashion Couise, laid agalust the horse's success when he mado tbe match. Aner the horse, who was driven by young Tliram Woodruff, had gone a few miles, odds of $100 to $80 were bet on him.

BRAZIL. " -' ' i- jk Season ot Excitement The IMfnenlty netwees Minister Webb and tbe Zacfcf itrlns Government, The New York TimeiP correspondent writes on the 26th nit. of the difficulty between Minis ter Webb and the Zackarias officials: ' It appears that General Webb has been gra dually wiping out the old claims against Brazil by compromise, when it was posslole, on the ground that all such claims of long standing are sure to lead to difficulty. He has settled tbree of fifteen, slxteen.and twenty years' stand ing, respectively, but. as it now appears, the last, which was settled in November, was not accomplished without a threat of suspending diplomatic relations. The world,' however, knew nothing of all this, and his colleagues of tbe diplomatic corps were not a little surprised to learn that to much, had been accomplished without anything being known on the subject. At the commencement of every session the different Departments of Government have printed and laid upon the tables of members tbelr annual reports or 'Telatorios." That of tbe Foreign Otlice contained a letter from the Minister respecting the claim for damages in the case of the Caroline, of twenty year' standiug, ater aa offer to pay in part" had conceded the justice of the claim. General Webb wrote a sharp despatch In response, charging the Gov ernment with having acted uniustly and offen sively toward him and his Government aud threatened to suspend diplomatic relations with Brazil till be could bear from Washington, unless the claim was paid. Then followed a letter from the Minister, rescinding bis lormer decision and aercelng to p y. The opposition very naturally and Justly lld hold of this to assail the Ministers, and they did it to effectually that tbe Ministry tnrned upon General Webb, and abused him roundly for having coeroed them into payment. And in the midst ot tbe excitement Zackarias, the Premier, who Is an open hater of the United Slates, de scribed it as "a Government of bowie knives and revolvers." This was in a general debate npon liberty, and tbe accountability of all Gov ernments to the people, in which the United States was unnecessarily dragged In by Zackarias exclaiming! "What does the member wantf Would he have us change the Government of Brazil so as to resemble that of the North a Government of bowie-knives and revolvers?" This was on tbe 27th of May; but Zackarias did not report his speech nntil the 4th ot June, and then so emasculated it that it simply charged that questions were settled in the United States Dy tbe "revolver," leaving it questionable whether he referred to the Govern ment or individuals. It was known that General Webb had publicly sent to tbe editor of the Jhario for a report of the Premier's speech, and the slory was rile that he had been challenged, etc On the 8th of July General Webb made a pub lication in the Braxi'ian Times which com pletely vindicated his Government, and put an end to the excitement which the Ministry had succeeded in raising, to secure themselves from censure. That publicotion I enclose, and it gave universal satisfaction, damaging the Ministry fearfully. Then came the intelligence that the Marqnis ot Caxlas, the Commander-in-Chief of the allied forces in Paraguay, had, after detaining the United States steamerWasp atCurapalty, refused to let her pass his lines ot blockade to go to Asuncion for Minister Washburn, by direction of the United 8tates Government. This made matters look squally. General Webb demanded that she should be permitted to pass as a right, there being no other mode by which his Gov ernment could reach their diplomatic agent in Asuncion. The Government decided at once that she should not pass; but they refused to give your Minister auy reply until the 9th of July, after the sailing of the steamer South- amptuu. - General Webb, on the 15th, reiterated his demand, and gave them eight days to determine whether they would permit the Wasp to go up, or whether they would send him his passport to return to the United States I They were not prepared for this. It left them no alternative but to reverse the decision they had so promptly mftde and osten tatiously proclaimed, quarrel with tbe United States, or resign. They sent in their resignations on the evening of the 13tb, and then pretended to tbe Chambers that they bad resigned because the Emptror had exercised his constitutional prerogative and selected as Senator tor life a Confervative instead of a Liberal 1 . TUB MAINE ELECTION.- Betarns from 417 Towns Recnpltula i tlon of tbe Vote by Couutiea. from the Portland Press of Sept. 2L ' We give this morning returns from 417 cities, towns, and plantations, of the vote for Governor on the 14th Instant. These returns are largely compiled from those made by- the respective town clerks to the Secretary ot State.. Tbe vote thrown is an enormous one the largest by nearly seven thousand ever given in this State. The heaviest vote ever before thrown in this State was that ot 1860, when it counted up to 124,000. This year it will be near 181,000. The aggregate vote of the 417 towns f;lven this morning, excluding the few scatter og votes, is 129,830, of which Governor Cham berlala has 74,809, and Mr. Pillsbury 66,021: giving a majority for Governor Chamberlain of 19,788, which will be Increased to 20,060 by the few remaining returns to come in. Tbe majo rity for Governor Chamberlain, in our opinion, will not vary Ave hundred either way from twenty thousand. : At the election in 1860, when the largest vote was thrown that has been known in tbe State, excepting that of this year, the Republican majority was 16,625. In that year nearly every voter was out, and while the Republican threw 70 030 votes, there were 64,106 thrown against them. Compared with the vote of last year In tbe towns given, the Republican gain Is 7772. This Is glory enough for the campaign thus far, but we shall do belter for Grant ana Colfax by thousands.

An Impending Breach In the Democratic Kauhs-Republican Primary Meeting. Special Despatch to The Evening Telegraph. Baltuiobb, Sept. 23. The Democrats of West ern Maryland, In the Fourth Congressional dis trict, are greatly at loggerheads, and indicate chances of a defeat. The Ignoring yesterday of Colonel Maulsby, conservative; J. Phyilp Ro man, old Whig, and A. K. Syester, moderate Democrat, who were candidates, and the nomi nation of Patrick Hani mill, has created terrible diasati faction. . Hammill is a ."dyed-in-the-wool" Democrat and secession sympathizer. This offends the conservatives and other mode rate men, and will likely result in the Republi cans electing their candidate in that district. The Republican primary meetings last night indicate that John L. Elisor, late State's Attor ney, of Baltimore county, will be nominated for Congress by that party in the Second district, and General A. E. King in the Third district, to oppose Swann. ' . .
