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.

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

Tlla Views on our Indian Difficulties.
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.

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. From the sub
joined table It will be seen tbe horse won, with

-' ' 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 .

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.

: A Ban Franotsoo bootmaker has invented
the latest agony in the way of ladies' gaiters.
The heels, about two inobea in length, taper
down from the foot nntil they are no thicker
than a man's thumb, and then widen oat
again nntil a silver twenty-five oent pleoe,
which is sore wed on at the bottom of each,
Just covers it.
Tommy Iladden says "shanghaeing sailors
don't amonnt to mnoh," and he intends to
go into the mission business and set np a
borne that will aooommodate 600 persons.
He vigorously repels the insinuation that he
can't go to heaven if he tries, says his place
1b as clean and respectable as John Allen's,
and that he doesn't believe In sadden con
versions. There Is evidently a little Jealous
somewhere.

Returns to Madrid.
By Atlantio CubU.
MaDBin, Sept. 22. A royal decree has been
Issued accepting the resignation of the Minis
ters, and naming Jose Concha as President of
the Council. lie has not, however, as yet
formed a new Ministry. The Government has
formed three military divisions, comprising.
Catalonia, Castile, and Andalusia, under the
command of Pezuela, Manuel Concha, and
Novalisches. They have decided to attack the
insurgents. ' .
The Captain-General of Madrid has published
a notice, which he has posted on all the cor
ners of the streets, forbidding any assemblage
of the people. A provisional government has
been formed at Seville, which has declared
Espartero as President. The forces of the
Insurgents are estimated at fourteen thousand
soldiers and eleven ' eblps-of-war, with five
thousand seamen. The revolt makes progress.
The Queen left St. Sebastian at midnight for
Madrid.
FROM CHICAGO.
Urging: tbe Removal of Bishop Daggan
lilalr In tbo West Political Ilf
ferenee.
Special Detpateh lo The Evening Telegraph. .
Chicago, Sept. 23. Rev. Dr. McMullen, of
this city, left yesterday for Rome, to urge the
removal of Bishop Duggan from the Catholic
Diocese of Chicago. Rev. J. P. Roles, who was
deposed from the pastorate of the Church of the
Holy Name, has been reinstated in his ecclesias
tical functions, though he will be obliged to leave
the Diocese.
General Frank P. Blatr arrived In town yes
terday morning. The colored citizens of
Springfield, HI., and vicinity, bad an emancipa
tion celebration yesterday; Fred Douglass was
among the speakers. There is a prospect of a
compromise between the Donnelly and Hubbard
factions of the Republioaa party in Minnesota.
The question of submitting the regularity
of tbe nomination to the arbitrament
of four judges, each appointing two, has
been accepted by Donnelly. The result of the
decision will probably be that it will be sub
mitted to the Republican voters to decide who
is their choice. .
FROM BALTIMORE.
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. ' . .
