'The New Teh Kl Moumefit at Demis' Ue glbte-A New stary of Arlnold' Trea *poa, the Prult of the Ingratitude ot HI f/euntry. ilSpotedl CrrIoNilpmde' N. 1. De.mocerat.I Naw Yonlt, 8ept. 24, 1877. I presume you have already remarked the extreme and, during my recollection, UNPIRF'EDENITEID TAMII'NEHH OF THE I'OLITI ('AL CAMPAIGNS which are waging In several of the States this fall. The great trouble which besets our po litical managers this fall seems to be the dif ficulty in finding an isPue. There Is, indeed, no lack of material from which to fabricate platforms. But the platitudes of a platform are one thing, and a good, reliable issue, which disturbs the equilibrium of the honest voter and affords raw material upon which the regulation stump orator may expend his lung power, is quite another. Great things had been expected from TIH. "FRAUD" IUSUlI by the Democracy hereabouts, but so far as one may judge of the futurb by what has transpired to dlate, "fraud first triumphant in our hiltory," notwithstanding it bears the stamp of a Massachusetts Adams, will fall to start any serious tidal wave of reaction. I have enjoyed the felicity of complete non-In torcourse with the tribe of "managing politi elans" during the last three months, but I have seen a good deal of the "average voter;" and never have I found the latter in so uni form a state of Indifference or so numb with apathy as he is now. I should say that It would be as easy to cultivate a sentiment of honor in the genus carpet-bagger as to arouse a genuine 'political enthusiasm among the voting masses of the North with respect to any question now before the public. The politicians up here are just beginning to realize how much they lost when Louisiana and South Carolina were abandoned by the Federal government to the tender mercies of their own citizens. What a gap is left where THE "SOUTHERN QUINTION" used to be In the polities of the North ! It is an aching void, and I don't know but It is about equally painful to both parties; for the Itepublicans, when caught stealing, were were wont to set up a hue and cry of "out rage" and "intimidatiop at the South;" whereas the Democrats, on the other hand, when surprised with their hands full of Tweed plunder had an easy and convenient refuge in making a din about carpet-baggery. It did not matter that what the Republicans howled about "intimidation" and outrage was not one,-quarter true, nor that what the Democrats shouted of carpet-baggery was not one-quarter of the truth; each had its effect upon the class of minds at which it was aimed, and the effect of both was not far from equal in their re spective directions. But now the Southern Issue, with all its direct, indirect and inci dental bearings upon those deep-lying consti tutional questions which form the basis of all pollolcal contention, is "out of politics" and the Democrats of the North miss it almost as keenly as the Radicals do. The consequence is the tameness of which I spoke at the outset. In Ohio the campaign fairly drizzles along. In Iowa, I am told, the honest farmers consult their Tribune Alma nacs to find out whether there is to be any election this year. IN PENNSYLNANIA the Radicals are waiting for the Democrats to lead off, and the Democrats have concluded not to begin their canvass until they see how Ohio goes in October. Then, if Ohio goes Re publican they think it won't be of any use for them to make a canvass; whereas, if Ohio goes Democratic they think there won't be any need of a canvass ! In New York there is no party fight to speak of, except that a lively internccine row is going on Inside of each organization. There is very little differenoe as to volume and vio lence between THlS CONKLINO HOW In the Radical camp, And the John Kelly-Til den squabble In the Democratic fold. In either case, whichever faction carries the State convention of its party will have all the work of the campaign to do, and will get for it the curses of the other faction. The natu ral conclusion would be that the situation is flat, and THE TRADE OF POLITIUS DEMORALIZED. Heavens and earth! Suppose politics should definitively play out as a trade I What would become of the vast supply of professional Statesmen and skilled Reformers now on hand? One does not like the picture. TIH NEW YOUR MOUMENtr r. Let us change the subject. Not long ago I had occasion to inspect the deelgn of the mon umnent which the Empire State is about to erect in commemoration of the defeat and capture of Burgoyne. I had been not a little curious to know what disposition would be made of the real hero of the occasion. The point was one of great delicacy, for it would hardly do to perpetuate the burly figure of Benedict Arnold in American and patriotic bronze, while any monument on the field of Stillwater that ignored him entirely would be a sham in the eyes of every reader of history. That Arnold was the life, soul and spirit of that campaign is at last familiar to every schoolboy, despite the efforts of the earlier historians to hide his brilliant infamy under the respectable imbecility of Gates or the solemn nineoumpoopery of Schuyler. And, by the way, this subborn vitality of ARNOLD'S FAME is a curious incident of the irrefraglbility of truth in history. Like murder in romance, so truth in history "will out." Well, THE DESIGN OF '~1II MONUMENT is uniquely ingenious. Four niches are to be out in the pedestal block. Three of them are to be filled with statues of Schuyler, Gates, and rude Daniel Morgan--the division cornm mander who used to get his private soldiers to read his dispatches. The fourth niche is to be left empty, and at the bottom of it the name of Benedict Arnold is tq be inscribed within a border of deep mourning, which I understand is to be enameled upon the granite. This I should say would be about the only appropriate thing that could be done in the premises. But to make the legend complete an inscription should be added something like this: "Died of the ingratitude of his country." To illustrate what I mean I must relate A BIT OF HiBTORY, which has thus far had its existence as a Samily tradition: Grove Buell, a brother of my great-grand .hL=er, was a lieuteaant of Dutchese oounty militia, (afterwards merged in the Second New York Line,) and, being htigaded with troops raised just across the 1inb in Connec cut, got into Arnold's division and was at headquarters as an aide during the battles of Bemis' Heights. He stated long after the Revolution that, immediately subsequent to the first battle Gates determined to fall back to the Mohawk, that a stormy interview occurred between Gates and Arnold, in which the latter threatened to put Gates under arrest if he attempted to i.sue such an order, and declared that he would assume the command of the army him self and fight Burgoyne again on that same ground "If he had to do it with a rope around his neck." Gates consulted some of his inti mates and ascortained that the temper of the army would not tolerate an order to retreat, that Morgan and Winslow would both side with Arnold in case of such an emergency, and that he would incur great danger of as sassination if he attempted to fall back. Gates thereupon changed his programme, gave the orders that led to TH ecMOND BA'rrLfl OF BxM1s' JI[IOHTs, and contented himself with relieving Arnold from his command upon a pretext, the flimsi ness of which has been most ably exposed by Headley. The battle was fought. Gates kept his tent. Arnold, as soon as he heard the rattle of the musketry, ignored the order relieving him' Ilew to the f*id, took command of his division and, In the light of the best data that are ac cessible, gained the day as incontestibly as Napoleon gained Marengo. The surrender of Burgoyne followed; but the official report of Gates had no mention of Arnold. And from that moment, said my great-great-uncle, Ar nold was subjected to persecution at the bhands of the cabal which surrounded Gen. Washington sufficient to drive a much less tempestuous soul than his to madness, sui cide or treason. That Arnold chose the latter was due probably to the fact that his mind was too strong to be wrecked and his bosom too brave for self-murder. But his treason may safely be charged up to the joint account of THE IMMEABUiABLE M.EANESS OF OATES, and the solemn, punctilious weakness of Washington, both of which combined to con fer odium and obscurity upon Arnold as a re ward for forcing Burgoyne to surrender. Thus it seems that in order to most fully con serve the equities of history, Gates' niche ought to be left empty too--a suggestion which I presume will find echo in the South for the memory of Camden oATHS WAS A FRAUD. Between Arnold at Saratoga and De Kalb at Camden, he managed to steal considerable reputation. It Is high time he was stripped of the fruits of his larcenies and set down in history where he belongs-as the general who never won a battle except in his tent, and who never wrote an official report that was not a lie. The men who serve under a com mander are the best judges of his worth as a man and soldier. Who ever heard a revolu tionary veteran speak affectionately of Gates? But, spite of all Arnold's treason and infamy, the men of his old division, gray haired and tottering away along Into the present century, used to speak of him with the reverence of trembling voices and tearful eyes. My great great-uncle lived to a rare old age, and when he got so feeble that he had to be protected from excitement, the subject of Arnold was tabooed in his presence by those who took care of him; because, if anybody said any thing derogatory to his old commander in his presence, the veteran of Bemis' Heights would defend Arnold and assail Gates with such vehemence as to prostrate his nerves for days thereafter. Such facts tell their own story. A. C. B.

He is now on the point of bringing it to a close and committing it to one of his secretaries, to be reserved for ten years after his death and then published. That it is not to be printed sooner is particularly enjoined by a codicil to his will. The book will contain correspond ence of great interest with Victor Emanuel, Napoleon III, and Cavour. -Gen. Le Due, Commissioner of Agricul ture, after making inquiries into the capacity of the soil and climate of California, is firm in the conviction that tea and sugar can be profi tably raised along the Pacific slope. This he deems a solution of the California Chinese question, by offering employment to Chinese labor in the cultivation of these products, and thus withdraw their competition. from other departments of labor in California. -According to the French papers in Canada a wonderful miracle occurred at La Bonne St. Ann's on Sunday, when a French-Cana dian woman in Quebec, who has been lame for years and had to use crutches, was, im mediately after partaking of communion, cured of her lameness, and returned home without her crutches. A French-Canadian who fifteen years ago joined the Baptist Church, was, on witnessing this, reconverted to the Catholic faith. -A band of riotous workingmen recently had a skirmish with the Swiss police in the streeW of Berne, and surrendered at disore tion. Their rhetoric in the court-room was even more peculiar than Barney J. Dona hue's. One of them struck -an attitude and assured the magistrates that the social ques tion could only be solved by violence and blood. Another Internationalist predicted that the day would come "when you, gentle men, who are judges to-day, may have your skulls smashed on these very walls." -A line of steamers has been established between Marseilles (France) and the River Plate (South America), to convey fresh meat from the latter locality in a frozen condition. On one of the steamers the Pellier process is used for producing cold, by the volatilization of other; on the other the Carre process is employed; a temperature being obtained by the evaporation of ammonia, which is said to be so low as to sheet the meat with ice. The second vessel of the line started from Mar seilles while the first was coming into port with a cargo. The church pronounced a bene diction on the outgoing vessel; a procedure 'which seems somewhat in advance of young Benjamin Franklin's proposition to have his father say grace over the pork In thlbarrel. -Mr. Alfred Simpson has given an enter taining' account of the manners and customs of the Zaporal of Ecuador. The mode of courtship presents some suggestive features. The enamored swain goes to the woods and hunts game; when he has procured it, he presents it to the malden of his choice. This constitutes the proposal; if she accepts, she cooks the meat. Hence, before entering upon the bonds of matrimony, the Zapora suitor has the great advantage over civilized wonrs of being assured as the lady's capacity for preparing a square meal; and doubtless there is a diminished probability that afterward the fat will be in the fire. On the other hand the Zaporiness is favored with some fore knowledge as to her spouse's ability to keep the larder supplied. [(ommni unicalted.] FAMILIAR SPIRITS. Among the poems of that famous author, M. Goose, is to be found the following ex travagan za: "There was a mad man. an 1 I had a madrl wife'. And the children we're mta hlele: HMo on a mad horse they all of them git. And madly away did ride." The maltreated animal on whom the poet has thus conferred an anonymous immortall ty, naturally suggests the over-driven hobby of the present day.--4piritualism. Strange it Is, that while life is so full of riddles, so much speculation should be expended in the vain attempt to unravel the great enigma of death; an enigma of which, as poor Tom Hood truly observes, the only solution is dissolution. The few travelers who ever came back from the un discovered country, returned thither centuries upon centuries ago, and we may as well ex pect the other miracles of Scripture to be re peated for our benefit as to be permitted to hold intercourse with those "Who have got out of the habit Of living like you and me." In truth, do we really care to hold inter course with them ? Such is:our mortal terror of Death that the fooling extends itself to those whom lie has clahimed as his own, and, though we go yearly to scatter autumn flowers over the resting places of those who cIre "taking their ease under the graveyard grasses," if we were there to meet their spiritual bodies the greet ing would surely have in it more of awe than of delight. 14 But humanity loves ghost stories, and when it feels constrained to put them away along with other childish things, it endeavors to find a substitute in Spiritualism; hence the Interest excited by the vague revelations of those pale, bandaged impostors who appear at their darkened windows to tell us of the spirit land. Did we really believe them our terror would be as great as that of the war rior king when the ghost of Israel's seer de manded of him, Why hest thou disquieted me to bring me up? And why should we seek to disquiet them ? There can be no real fellowship between the dead and the living. Whether the departed ones lie in " cold obstruction's apathy;" whether they be expiating their sins in the purgatory of the Ioumanist; whether they be shut up In the prison vaguely alluded to by the apostle and here the question may be asked of Protestant orthodoxy, if our Savior preached unto spirits in prison why may not thosespirits be prayed for ?); whether they be gone (as some doctrines teach) directly to their reward or punishment, without waiting for the final judgment, they can, henceforth, be to us only a memory. Life without them may be the dreariest of blanks, but they hear not our loudest lamentation, or if they hear, they make no sign. They may not come back to us even for a momient to whisper that all is well with them. Let us. then, be conmtent with the hope that scripture has given us, that their love for us is unchanged, and go on living our dull lives reslignedly, instead of tugging at that dtark, mysterlous curtain which the Witch of Endor was the only mor tal ever permitted to draw aside, and that only to punish the rebellious son of Klsh by giving him the fearful foreknowledge of his doom: To-morrow thou and thy oeas shell be with m'. Summary was the punishment of offenders In those Old Testament days, and Saul had not only neglected to execute ven geance on Amalk, but he hadi turned unto such as had familiar spirits, and the Lord set his face against him to cut him off from hit poo.le. Of course the modern counterfeits of that awful seance do not come under the ban even of the Jewish law. The mediums of the pres ent day are no more deserving of punishment than the stage witches In Macbeth. They are not so good at sleight-of-hand as are sonem avowed jugglers, but many of their perform ances are quite wonderful. What we ask of them is not to overtask hu man credulity. We are required to believe that the extremes of heat and cold produco similar effects; that a hyperbolic curve may continually approach a straight line without touching it; that excess of light will produce darkness, etc. Let us be spared this super fluous marvel. Our dead are hallowed. Let no sacrile gious medium bring us counterfeit communi cations from them. The love where Death hath set his seal must ever remain un changed; but until death do us unite, we and our dead are separated by "the jc g er saha-dutha of the tomb." We shall not pass over It to go unto them, and they shall not pass over it to come unto us. CLABA MARSHALL. Pearl toaplna. Ask for Soaspna and you will get thebest soap.
