However th" pending contro? versy .-.any n-nilt, it is ecrtainly clear that Mr. Suiihy i? ajj oliclii'iit and energetic reporter, and that ?he llnaltl, in funding him out and Buppoifinir him, acted with a princely eirt?r pr_e and lil.iT.ility.

If will bo di?icult to get enough Dem?crata together to make a ?show, and it would hanlly b." effective to ex? hibit tlie auxiliary Grant men. Bnt, of course, some sort of a meetint; will be held, and afterward, notwithstanding Mr. Duncan's plea of poverty, th?re will be money enough fur? nished by the Grant Committees to (tat up an apparent organization in roost of the State?. This dishonest procee?ling will probably over? reach itaelf. The few Democrats who will bolt fioin Mr. Greeley would, in default of a third ticket, vote for Gen. Grant.^ There is no possible objection to the Grant i?e?p)e> pay? ing the expense? of keeping this vote away from them. The difflcultie? of Messrs. Gco. Wm. Curtis dt Co. in explaining the progress backwards wliich their Civil ?Service It?form makes und? r tbe advirable management of the President, is furtker increased by tlie revelations in our Washington dispatches to-day. Ail disguises, It seems, have been dropped, and tin Graut Committee send peremptory r<sq.nitj?ents to the Government employ?s for cont.'.bntions *'iot use ui the orenaiatioQ and circulation of i " information on political and economic stib "j?'cta." Those who pay aro retained; those who do not pay, good or bad. are to lose their places. We do not care for tho-, B.vro political capital to bo made out of this. We prefer seriously to ask the gentlemen of tho Civil Service Commission whether, as honor Batta men, they can oontinue to profess to the country that this ?r the Reform entertainment to which they invited us. That Senator Cameron should travel from Phihuh'lpliia to Washington to consult the PNB?bat alkoiit the alarming exigencies of the Pennsylvania canvas?, only to lind that the President had left things to take care of themselves and had gone to Long Branch, is of trifling consixpicnce. The Washington dispati'h, however, which narrates this small nft'air addl something of more moment in the st.itcment that Cameron, in his rage, confess??! his certainty that Gov. Curtin would oppose Hartranft mid support Greeley and Brown, Bod thereupon proceeded to abuse that gen? tleman to his heart's content. The remark? able need for an increase of the force in the Philadelphia Navy-Yard is also ono of the ?ignilii-ant signs of the time*, to which our Liberal Republican friends in Philadelphia cannot give too earnest attention. Il is very singular, and wholly unaccountable, ttiia Midden and startling need for more men i:i ?M Navy-Yarils, ?like in Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and Portsmouth. What a bad way our navy must be in! ? i Mr. Jame? O'Brien is a politician of . is city, supposed to deserve respect in cons?? quence of his Irish birth and alleged influent* over Irish voicrs. He has ?laiined to control the Apollo Hall organization, and now pur? poses to send it to Grant via Louisville. To that end he has placed Judge A. HnaMlBI at its head. What will Irishmen BB]f to the tail that this person, who trades on his boaatosj ability 10 control their votes, has thai put at the head of the organization which is to direct and rcpnsi'iit then BB eld and B-tOtiOM Know-Nothing 1 Juilge Sp.ild inks' w;i.-s nominated as the Hindoo and Knosv Nothing candidate for .lodge of the Court of Common Plea? in ltO.!, against John R. Brady, who was Democratic candidate of both Hard and Soft-Shell factions, ?nul ugaiust Cambridge Livingstone, the WUg candidate. In 1856 this same present leader of Mr. TBBt.fl O'Brien's Irish ton i s ran as the American or Know-Noth? ing candidate for memher of Assembly in the Nth Assembly District, then the Xilth Ward. In 18.?7 he ran B-gaia m the American or Kn??w Nuthing candidate for Recorder, having also fie Republican indorsement, and being op l -. d by George G. Barnard, Democrat. Mr. .'.inns 0*Biicn now puts this man forward as th?' proper person to had the Irish Democrats of Apollo Hall to tho ?upport of President Grant. _ TLRHONT. The Green Mountain State holds her ?lec? tion next Tuesday, and, as the hist in which a BtBM lit kit was expressly nominated and sup? ported on the Liberal platform, the result will be regarded with lively interest. The Demo? cratic vote of Vermont is about twelve thou? sand ; we believe the Liberal vote will considerably exce?'d twenty thousand. 1 ho, there can be no reasonable doubt as to the PrB_de__al cpnte.-.t, siuce a similar result in other States would give the Liberal Party about five millions of votes in the Union, enabling it to choose more than two-thirds of the Electors. The Liberals of Vermont have made this canvass under most discouraging auspices. All tho Federal and State offices are filled with their active, envenomed foes. Postmasters, Custom-house officers, Internal Revenue ditto, Senators and Representatives in Congress, with State functionaries of all grades, are leagued to crush out. the New Departure. Tear? ing a majority intolerant and prosi'riptivc, the weaker bri'thren succumb to the terror* of power, and suppress their convictions that they may escape bullying. What? ver the Liberal voto may be, it will fall ?short by thousands of the voters who wish well to the cause, and will heartily rejoice in its success. "But" (they Bay) "since we cannot carry the " State, why subject ourselves to scowls and " curses from tho wealthy and powerful to "no purpose Tn This sort of truckling will deprive the Liberal tii'ket of support to which it is entitled ; and yet we look confidently for a result which will inspirit and assure the advocates of Rccomilintion and Reform from one end of the Union to the other. /. USACY THE A TMENT. The narrative of Tut Tkihune reporter who was confined in Bloomingdale Insane Asylum is continued in other columns of this issue of The TiuiirxE. All candid readers will admit that the story is told dispassionately. In fact, so impressed has the writer lieeu with his instructions to set ?lown nothing he cfinnot establish on oath, and to divest himself of any feeling of prejuilice or animosity toward the physicians or keepers, that he appears to err on the other side and to have lost something of the natural feeling of sympathy lot the helpless creatures his mis? sion was devised to aid by giving voice to those whom nature and man combine to si? lence as though entouibetl. In spite of a tume ness which this conscientious precaution has given the narrative, it is nevertheless not wanting in the elements which make it ab? sorbing reading, and the combined narratives form a powerful argument in favor of that reformation in the legal and medical treat? ment of insanity which must grow out of the agitation thus begun in this State. Th?' two narratives now publish?-?! establish, beyond any sort of doubt, that greater facili? ta - are oili-n-d for g?-tting a sane man into an Insane Asylum than out of it. The whole medical profession is at the beck and call of all who can pay to aid in the commitment. The sane man, once eoini;iiit?'d, has only the medical skill of a single physician to call to his succor ; and that physician is already pr?-ju?liced again ?t him, for divers reasons. It is bis interest,?to put the baaer motive first and dismiss it soonest?to keep the paying boarder as long as bia friends pay his kc< ping. Then the indorsement of his* infirmity \m two reputable pro le sai? ?nal breth? ren leails the Asylum physician to hesitate at reversing their sworn diction. It, is not merely a thing that paBBM to luck proiessionnl courtesy, but a d?licat?; one ; if a mistak?- be made it is damaging to the reputation of himself or asso? ciates, and in any ?vent is tlerofrutory to a |(aa_a_BB in which the in?_bJm_B take unusual pnd?'. Thai prejudiced, il is natural that there should l>e hesitation on the part of Asylum physicians, and a disposition to toiture a patient's protest of sanity and appeals for release into evidences of idiocy, enn -luiutoiy ol' tho certificate of commitment. Additional proof of another sort, BhowinK diflieulty of pit ting out of an asylum like Bit iugd_le, is iuruiahed by our reporter. " " Lodge* for Dangerous fjUttW. in whic wan ?rat confined at Blooniingdalo, is a tl more secluded prison than the Tomb? or Sing. Crimiuals are leas ?ecurely guarded Unfortunate-. And it is aa diflicult for a syr thising friend to penetrate it to aid a pat as for the patient himself to encajie. doctors visit the halls onco a day to hear complaint? and applications, ai Rcore of patients in each ward are expect?. tell their stories in the two or three inin ?Hotted to each. ?All this If simply crim and has no excuse in the pitiful plea ol curity. It is mismanagement unworthy public prison for Correction or Detention, more severe upon the patiants than the cipline of the worst Prison for Put nient in the State of New York. No perfect or proper Asylum or Htt| for the treatment of special diseases, particularly of insanity, can exist wit! strict adh?rence to a well considered syi of classification. The rej.>ort which we pul to-day is conclusive proof that there i such system pursued at Blooiningdale. proof is not in the assertions of the wri it lies in tho fact that he, feigning noth appearing a quiet person, without even centricities, daily visited by an " exp physician, nnd constantly watched by " " fessional" keepers, was kept four days in excited wards, surrounded by dangci maniacs, without suggestion of renie And during all this time the ward never once viaited by the Chief 1 sician or Superintendent, Dr. Brown. The Bloomingdale Asylum is a private stitution, owned and conducted by persi enterprise. It is evident, also, that it a speculative institution, and that it is mi tained at a profit at the abuse and expens the unfortunate boarders. The lowest i per week charged is $*%% Now it is i.iil from the plain, brief, and careful statem? of the reporter, that the accommoda'ions not better than can be had in any IBM eltiss boarding-house in this city for m ven t lurs a week, room and meals iiuludnl. As the other conditions, the food is not particuh nutritious, the supply of the cosllit-r mater is small and grudgingly given, the food is clean, nor is it well cooked, and the attet anee at table is simply beastly. The conv sat ion of the keepers wliilo serving at ta is not fairly reported, but it is because tl disgusting language cannot be expressed print, and it is impossible to des? rib?; Uttered in a public bar-room, some of words reported to us by tho reporter a? pe.ttedly spoken by the attendants wl serving at table in the Asylum, would In subjected the speaker to summary and viol? ejection at the hands of the most besotted proprietors. The constant punishment of an imber youth by forcing him to perform tlie duties a menial ; the violent huilin- of a hartnl idiot half across a room for the offense of i knowing which way to turn ; the brutal be ing of an old and blind idiot for pi?te?!i against rudo treatment ; the toasting of a p? boy naked in tho suu wliilo confined in wl is nothing other than an iron cage ??these ; among the instances of cruelty which the : porter cites as having been witnessed by hi self. Others aro also named, but none are such a painful nature as those etiuinei.it above. Wcjhavo vainly endeavored to imngi a plausible excuso for these acts of violer which wo have not the heart to recite in i taii. They appear to have been wanton a? dono in moments of passion by the kecpci and were not necessary apparently to t maintenance of any system of discipline, ? discipline and classification alike seem to ha no part in the Bloomingdale managt niei But we are less disposed to hold the keepi morally responsible for tuese acts cruelty than to condemn Dr. Burr and tho Governors for their frequent re?u rene?; for it || always sure to lie the case these large institutions that the man will in t?te the master, and the keeper.? in the Lod? aro apt followers of Dr. Burrill. It mi appear invidious to name Dr. Burrill as tl responsible physician to the exclusion of li superior, Dr. Brown ; but it must not 1 forgotten as ono of the explanations, and tl priuiiiry cause, in fact, of the dcmor.iliz; tion in the management of Blooiningdal that Dr. Brown for years past has been ki| by the Governors lobbying at Albany and els< where in the interest of tho Asylum. ?We have still more to tell of the manngi ment of this Aysluiu, and the worst feat un oi tho case have not ull been related. Th physical labor of writing up the story, part ici larly where few notes were used save thof mad under painful circumstance-, renders impossible that the reporter should complet the whole in time for a single issue. Hi week's residence in the ward for quiet pat ientr undetected under the very eyes of Di Burrill, still remains to be told. We hav further to announce that we have obtained a insight into the management of another insti tution as large as that of Bloomingdale, am hope to be able, during the coming week, t furnish facts which will compel its reto, ma tion. From all parts of the country encou;rag ing letters and assistance reach us, and th cordial suptnirt of the great majority of th respectable journals of all partie? (for extract; from which we ?-an lind no room to-day) indi cates a deep and widespread interest in tbi reformatory and humanitarian movement. HESRY WILSON COS lit TUD. It is with unfeigned regret that WC havi read the linal letter of Mr. F. W. Bird, ii which he makes an end of Mr. Henry Wilson'i denial of the fact that he ever was a Know Nothing. Mr. Bird has a relentless niemo:\ and never n .kes mistakes. Mr. Wilson was very foolish to deny any of his statements, The result is just what might have been ex? pected. Mr. .Bird proves, point by point, every assertion he has made, with a full? ness of detail which leaves nothing to lie said. As a supererogatory confirmation of Mr. Bird's letter comes a dispatch from Washing? ton stating that Gen. Pike can show by his own and twenty other aftidavits that Mr. Wilson was a delegate to the Kuow-Notlnng i Convention in Philadelphia in June, 1835. Both gentlemen express their ama_ement at his recent letter denying this, which both ol them considered a forgery until it was printed by the Grant papers in Boston. To our deep regret, therefore, and the regret of all who have in former time? given their supjiort and e.iiiii.l. n..- to Mr. WiUoii, these two fact? re? sult, as absolutely and conclusively proved: 1. That Mr. Wilson did belong to the Kuow-N'othiug or American Order, and 2. That he Kays he never did belong to it. This, we must hold, is a very serious mat? ter. We do not attack Mr. Wilson upon his lormor record. Tu_ Tumu?_ uov ? ?hu? cd in the Kti.iw-Nothiihf di-lusion, but constantly op? posed and defied it. But we ?lo not forget that some pure and able men were influenced by it, who have h?ucii done important servioo to tin? country, who have worked with us in many fields of social and political reform. We hav?' not declared ?uch an error a dishonoring or disqualifying one. We think this whole business of the ?___t__M_t of ?bad political utterances rather trivial. We did not b?'gin it, ami would be glad to so?> it ended. But this charge having be?-n made against Mr. Wilson, he was free t?> admit it and avow his changed opinions, or to take refuge in Bilcnre and ignore it. Instead, he ?????meil struck with a fatal short-sightedmm, and began to evade the question by platitudes inlende?! to deceive, and at last, driven into a corner by accumulating accusations, he shut his eyes, like a baited bull, and flatly denied what lifty thousand people kn?w to be true. As well might Gen. Dix d?ny that he attended tin? Phihwlelphia Johnson Convention. We will not lie misrepresented upon this point. We are not assailing the nnteci'dents of Mr. Wilson. Wo think he committed an error in joining the Kuow-Nothings, but we are not here tliscussing that matter. The question is one of far gr?>ater importance. He is a candidate for the second ottioo in dignity in the nation. He is supported by thousands of men on the ground of his hon? esty and his Christian principle. He assumes a high moral tone whenever he addresses a public nmeting. He pretends to mako his political course purely a matter of conscience. Yet the ugly fact stamls against him that, for the purpose of saving a few votes, he deliberately writes and signs his name to a statement which ho knows to bo untrue, and which a cloud of reputable witnesses instantly prove to be untrue. We record the fact with inexpressible sadness, for we all lose something in a lapse like this of a BBBB who has held such exalted position and possessed so fully the confidence of a gnat, party. But the fact? are before us. To save ;i pii.-s-.ilib? loss of votes, he blindly denie-, in? cid? nts of pul)li<! notoriety in his own career. Is su -h a man tit for Vice-President?DOB* libly President ? Can any one who believes that" the first rrqin-i'e-i of high hta'ion are* liouor aud conscience vote tor such a man? SUMM1N0 OF. One who has attentively read the ?ponchos and ?'ditoiials of (he B__aBB___0___ for the l.i-i tun months IBJM up their propositions as follows : 1. Greeh-y always was a Secessionist and a Belie). 2. Greeley has turned his back on himself, and, in his ma?l quest of the Problems, i now going against all that ho has prob-sscd and advoi-at?)! up to last year. 3. Greeley has turn?-?! Democrat and accepted t_t very principles which he has always bit? terly opposed. 4. The Baltimore Convention sold out the Democratic, party, turning it over to its bit tere.-t, most implacable ci>??tny. 5. There were no Lilx-ral Republicans repre? sented at Cincinnati?only a f?'W "sore-heads'' and disappointed aflea aatiketi. 6. The Liberal l.epiiMicans have discovered that they were sold out at Cincinnati, and are returning to (?rant in crowds.; 7. Tens of thousands of Democrats, ?li??gustoil with Grethy's nomination, have como out for Grant. 8. The Straight Democratic ('Bourbon) move? ment will draw vote.-? from Greeley, but none from Grant. 9. Greeley is the weakest candidate that could have been pitted against Grant. 10. Though Grant alone could not beat Greeley, yet with a Bourbon running in his iiiicicat he will lx- aille tu do it. CLE US. Tlte Xcir-Ytirk JVorld published a few ?lays iU'ii a copy of the document.-, in the case of the naturalization of Henry Clews, the Treas? urer of the (?rant Committee, which showed that he allowed eh s en years to ?'lapse between his declaration, in tRti, of his intention to be BBBM an American citi/tii, and the consumma? tion of the process of naturalization in 18'?5. We publish this statement, as we do all manner of news, as we published Wil? son's Know -Nothing record, Gen. Grant's real ?state speculation in Chicago, 'ITie Times's at? tack on ?S nitor Doolittle, r? -serving ?>ur own judgment upon all of them until some reply should be made by the parti? s concerned. We t.ik?' the ?loloions ?ry in The Times of this morning to he a conb MBBB of all the facts el.urged in this ?ase. It f?'cls a mysterious sympathy with Mr. Clews, and pleads that it is no crime to be an Kuglishman and an alien. It certainly is not, unless you pretend to he homt thing ?-1st-. Take the case of this Mr. Clews for instance. Than is not a man in New-York more fussily aiid otl'eii-sivi'lr conspicuous in his advocacy of Mr. Grant's reelection. He goes to merchants ?)f the eminente of Mr. Stewart and tells them what th?y miirt do in the cama--?, lie rises in the Republican C'onvi niiou at Ulica and pledges the vile of Wall Street to the can? didate nomina;?'?! tlnre. lie manages lo have himself designated as the person through whose I and? th?' vast corruption fund of the Grant Committees is *.o pass. He has even succeeded in substituting liiiiisi-ll' as the banker of the 1'niu?! States in London in the nlaee of ?t house of world-wide credit anil unqucstione?l Bfobity? He his ?Ion?? all this solely by an affectation of trdent and peculiar loyalty. For ten years past his mouth has been as full of latriotism as his pockets were of greetilncltS. He is one of those men who could lot live except in a latul of republican privibges, nor ?lie happy unle-s wrapped in the American flag. And yet alter all these years of theatrical humbug, it appears that during the ensis of the nation's c_islence, from 1800 to '.St?5, this thrifty patriot declined to conplcto his naturalization. We all know what ft patriot ho was : his vim? ration for Bonds and Currency was even then religious in its fervor. But he care? fully stayed away.Pom the Clerk's Office w here his inchoate citiz?uship awaited liim. The niarcliiing men on tie border called over and over for companions. Neither call nor con? scription could touch him, umler the safe shelter of the Red Cross. The life of the na? tion, we all thought. somctiiues depended on a day's voting. Mr. Clews never voted while Lincoln was President. In this he exercis? d his undoubted right. He kept his shop and his simp kept him. But, consiilering his attitude in that historic epoch, would not a penny-worth of res?rve become him now? As soon as the war was ?nded, the iaaajBB over, thu credit of th?t country e?Ul> lished on a firm basis, he became a citizen. And to-day there is not a patriot on Manhat? tan Island, not a battered relic of 181-, not a ouo-leggeil veteran of Chattanooga or Getty s btirg, not even a bronze st.ituo of the Revo? lution so saturated with patriotism as this bii-ycui old tuueu. \\ hi n vou think of what ho was doing from i860 to MM, then hear hint denounce Schurz, and Ti bull, and Sunnier, and Greelcy, as false to Interests of free?lom, and give Tom Mur certificates of character, and pledge mom ved power of New-York to the sen of a political faction, the performance has much insolence iu it to be amusing, and much absurdity to excite anger. I IIA RTRASFT 1STERR00A TORIES. One of the most curious features of political conflict of this day of ours is that a local canvass in the neighboring State Pennsylvania, the press of New-York is st< ily and resolutely laboring in the cause of form, while the local Republican presa Pennsylvania's ca|?ital, with a single except has not a word to say. Yet even in this stinence there is a marked distinction. _ for example the Administration organ? Philadelphia. There is there, a? cvciywl; reputable and disreputable journalism. We course, have no idea of specifying, bnt assi this fact. Disreputable, tinintlueutial jour ism sustains Ifartninft and his accomplice all their deeds of wrong, and does it bol That portion of the press which is respect? professes what may be termed Federal I giiince, adhesion to the Administration, an disinclined to do anything which may s? to thwart its views; gives a shamefai half-hearted support to tho Hartranl't cai and, defending it on one really iiiimatt point, passes over all that is vulnerable, conceals the actual sore which is so fo purulent. Take for example what may teimed tho leading business journal of Pli delpliia, 'Jhe North American, for which, fi long and friendly sympathy, we can say woid but of respect. In its columns all t fa refer? td to in defense is the relativ? ly | swindie of the Evans War Claim, but nol word about the Yerkes combination. _ Evans case, being yet involved in myst< admits of a timid advocacy, although the fac very patent that in it Hartranft refilled give up the vouchers out of which the fn greif (if fraud then? be) until by way of 1? he received from Evans some $7,000 $7,7)0, which was repaid. It has ugly look, but is not so very 1 that The North American cannot make so sort of apology for it. Not so the " Yerk " IIartranfi-Myers'; case. That is too bad | i too plain for sophistry, and Ik tice on this ! Noctli American, obeying its inbtincts ol i co:uni, i.? as r-Uent as the grave. It won't suit its respectable readers by a defence what is indefensible, and hence, on this Le: is dumb. Now it occurs to us that sin h abnegation of duty is hardly reconcilable wi either strict morality or with what is duo the great business interests which such ajoi nal justly claims to represent. Philadclpl cannot nflbrd to endure the tyranny of nol nously dishonest men at Harrisburg, with other compensation than the feeble rays of fa? which a Federal Administration is suppos to shed on it. We claim for our communi ? we moan our business community ? special moral preeminence, but it is too wist .?citish to fall into an error like this. Sure a wo that while it would be utterly imposai! that such a certified malfeasor as Ilartr.u. could be nominated as Governor of New-V.) by any party; yet if he wire, there would 1 universal revolt uniting the business men the Metropolis, and no newspaper, howev inlluontial or heretofore respectable, wou venturo to elude or defy it.

For facility of reference, w number the questions of our catechism. 1. Is th.- pr.ntico of the Myers-Hartranl Ping legit?malo of lending the cash MM _ ( the Tieasury?amounting to millions?to un known bankers and brokers, some of siti? are bankrupt, and one of whom is a convict 2. Do men of business?the faithful exect tors of public and private trusts?approve c the Auditor-General and State Treasurer pin c!ia?ing State securities at a depreciation an selling them to tho Sinking Fund at an ad vanee, ihey and their biok??r sharing the dif ference as their profit- ? 8. Did the State Treasurer, immediate! before his election the second time, borrow fo his private use from ono of the State deposi taries $-0,000, and afterward repay it by ; Treasury draft on the public funds! If yen is this approved of ? 4. Is it not a badge of fraud that all tin accounts between the broker (since convict and the financial officers of the State were kep either in fictitious names or, what is equiva lent, in reversed initials i 5. Is it consistent with the proper discharg? of duty for accounting ollicers with small sal aries to speculate to enormous amounts it stocks during their whole term of office Macki.v to the amount of $116,000 in tw< months, and Ilariranft of i'0.1,Out) in less thai two years ? ?J. Is it part of the function of a Controllc or Auditor-General to use official inforniatioi for ends of private gam?to claim taxation ot corpoiat" capital in order to dcoress the stock and, that failing, to speculate on a rise, g llartranlt did in the case of the Oil C ice Railroad ? 7. Was or was not the fraud on the Cttj Tieasury of which Mercer and Yerkes hav? been convicted facilitated, if not promoted, b) the countenance given by thu State autliori' ties? and did it not result in a deficit in tin. State Treasury which, if at all, wan made up from outside resources! H. Did not Myers and Hartranft recommend the nardon of Charles T. Yerkes, leaving th? victim Mercer without intercession T and ha.?' not the pardon been thus far refused, while assassins of Revenue Collectors have been dis? charged without stint Y 9. Is not the refusal of the Governor to par? don these parties a coucession to an urou?.ed public opinion, which condemns the whole transaction and all the parties to it?princi? p?is and accessories?those convicted and those at liberty I 10. Will not the election of John F. Hart? ranft as Governor of IVnnsylyauia be re? garded as an approval of these acts of wrong, and b.? palpably injurious to tlie ?redit and ?tinrai 1er ol the Mate t 11. In conclutlion, if in then question*, there is an assumption of any matter of i.ict winch either docH.iot ?Xi*! or is over-stain!, the respondent- ?re boned le point it out.
