The Times' editorial says:?"We bare the ^unpleasant duty to inform our readers of our tn'iug deceived respecting President Grant's Alessage to Congress. Out aim is to trust as little as possible to sources of information outside of our own control, yet we tlmuyht it Inconsistent with our duty to withhold from our readers knowledge which seemed properly authenticated. But it now appears thut tho ft gout of Baron Beuter deceived liim, and, through him, all Europe. Instead of the bellicose language regarding Cuba attributed 4o the President the New York papers just received show a gross misrepresentation, which, unless decisive steps are taken to justify in the future a confidence which has been misplaced, will make it impossible to put trust in the intelligence which may be received hereafter from the same quarter. Not one word of our report of the 7th iust. was sent to Congress. The text of the Presi dent's Message, now reproduced in our col umns, shows the complete substitution of a fabricated statement for the real account." CONTRITION AND REPENTANCE. Beuter' u agency has issued a card on behalf of Baron Beuter, promising to not again vio late public confidence. WHAT PRESIDENT GRANT DID SAT.

The I Insurrection continues, but Spain has gained no superiority. Slx years ol strt'e give the insur- , recilon a significance which cannot be denied. Its duration and the tenacity of its adherence, to gether with the absence of manifested power of ! suppression on the part of Spain, cannot be con- 1 troverted, and may make sonic positive steps on the part of other Powers a matter 01 seil-neoes Stty.

Iu>r two \ears we have been in vain appealing to the President ana Congress for relief from injuatlee, appreaaion and robbery, from the usurping of toe state government over us by the private order oi a drunken United Stains Judgc, written in his chumher and sustained l>> I luted states iroors brought here beforehand lor that purpose, This Governor. ineligible under our constitution, and defeated at the polls by 9,t>U) maorlty. ami by sucli means i installed and iiiainutinod in power, lias | been tinnble, alter nearly two years' misrule, to gain the Klinhti .it looihidj in the contlilence or respertoi the people, and as soon as ihe federal troops were with drawn within ail hour his -how of authority anil force molten into air i> lore tile calui duterminalion of an oul ratted people, and lie sought reiuge in the sanctuary of tne United ntaies t ustoiu llouse. Immediately upon ih.? ' command ol the President all thenuitsoi llie brilliant j victory achieved by our citizens, with the State House, ] public huildniKS and archives, were surrendered to an officer ol the t lilted stales Army, who skewered Kellogg to his gubernatorial seat. fror several wreks before the election, on '.he 2d of November. lh7l, the whole State, and especially the democratic parishes, were harried by the I'nitcd suites Army, and leading citizens were arrested on trumped-up charges, made by irresponsible tools of the radical party, lor the purpose of Intimidating the whites and carry lug Ihe election against the will of the majority. Notwithstanding this our people, knowing thai their continued existence in this state depeuil? upon their driving the government of plun derers from power, knowing that by misgov crnmont and exorbitant taxation imposed ny ignorant and corrupt legislators who had no Interest In the State, the valuu ol p. operty ha I been destroyed, ami, iuslead of being a blessing, had become a burden : knowing that ih<' fountains ol law and justice had been corrup'od aim that the government, whose end should be protection, had been converted into an engine ot oppression and ex tortion, ouiy limited by its Imbecility. Alter recltinir the various outrages perpetrated by the party iu power tne committee go on to say that, in the coullucucc that a virtuous public sen timent may compel unprincipled men who are preying ou the vitals 01 the Mate to let go their hold, we hope it may react upon the Ex ecutive and Congress and compel them to grant us that relief which neither their sense or justice nor regard for the fundamental institu tions of the country has been able to effect. We make this appeal in advance of the final consnm piatlon or u great wrong about being perpetrated upon the people, as we are positively assured of the Intention of tije returning officers to defraud the people of the fruits of tneir political victory as if tne act had been already consummated. We are not clamor ing, for party purposes, that one set of men should be substituted for another as publlo officials. At a meeting held this evening this address was unanimously adopted. BOSTON'S AMBITION. THE SCHEME OF A NEW BATT.ROAD TO THE WEST? MEETING OF CAPITALISTS. Boston, Mass., Dec. 22, 1S74. The meeting to-day In the Board of Trade rooms of the friends of the proposed new route to the West via Potlghiteepsie developed an unusual in. terest in the enterprise on the part, not only of the leading men of this city, but prominent per sons In New England and New York. A large delegation of the friends of the Hartford and Erie Railroad was present, and when the meeting was called to order tUe rooms were crowded by business men and capitalists of all classes. Alderman John T. Clark was chosen chairman and Introduced Mayor Eastman, of Poughkeepsle, first commending the project in strong terms, if it were feasible. Mayor Eastman, In an address or some length, stated the great advantages or the near route, the comparatively smbll amount necessary to perfect ] it?$auo,uoo neing all that was required.

Beyond Hartford there would be a different road, now open to through trains as far as Pongnkeepsie.

It was mainly from mechanics and farm* ! ers that the Pilgrims sprung. These men, standing on Plymouth Rock, began a career | of truth which will never end. and which, he hoped, would take possession or all the nations of the earth, as It has so largely in this nation.

This cannot b? done, but It can and will be done, nay it is being done, In part. Laying aside the inquiry who snail profit by an untold traffic, the matter ol cneap transportation touches the prosperity of the West; and whatever touches tne prosperity oi anv section or Stute or the Union touches the prosperity ol New York.

Great excitement prevailed last evening at the Windsor House, Forty-sixth und Forty-sevcntU streets and Filth avenue, when it was announced [or a certainty that King Kalakaua, oi Hawaii, was to be a gnest there, und particularly were the ladles in tue hotel iu a flutter. They were at last to see a real, live King. Shaaespeare alludes to a divinity that hedged about a king, but it is evi dent that the wreat poet was Ignorant of New York, or he would have made the word plural; for, Judging from the experiences of blood royal which has visited this great metropolis, King Kala kaua will, when he arrives at the hotel to-day, be hedged about by more divinities than he ever feasted his royal eyes upon beiore. Whatever the attentions he may have been shown in other cities he has visited in this country or those that may be hereaiter shown him, he can never leave New York without being able to truthfully say that whatever was kingly in the city was ireely offered to him. Mr. Wilkinson and the other gentle man of the Windsor Home seemed possessed of the restless energy ot Michael Scott's imp last night to make ready lor their august guest, and the best upholstering ability of the city was taxed to its utmost capacity to pre pare suitable apartments tor Uls Majesty and suite, and truly they are grand. THE ROYAL QUARTERS. For the King's private use parlors Nos. 112 and 113 on tne second floor have been set apart. The first of tnese is magnificently trimmed with crim son satin. It fronts on Fifth avenue and the win dows are draped with elegant lace curtains surouded with crimson satin, with lambrequins of the same material. There are elegant dlvana, sleepy hollow chairs, rocking and arm chairs, also oi crimson satin; Ottomans, whose Bolt and luxu rious cushions might invite a Cleopatra to repose; an etagere oi marble and maple and ol the most exquisite workmanship adorns one side of the room, while in the centre of the parlor stands a mosaic table of Eastern splendor. No. 113 Is a lar ger parlor, and is trimmed In blue saiiB, with, If possible, more elegance than No. 112, aud It Is easy to perceive that the tuste and delicate hands of woman have been busy to add refinement in the arrangement oi all this splendor. The curtains are of fine lace, looking as if they might have been woven by fairy looms, while the satin in its lustre, lalrly dazzles the eye. Here, as in the other parlor, are scattered, luxurious as the Ingenuity oi man could make mem and inviting to repose In every mature, divans ottomans and chairs of every description. The floors are covered with new and beautif il Au busson carpets, Into which the loot sinks with tne soit tread of a cat. A magnificent enony taoie, beautilully inlaid, adorus the centre of the room, while au etagere of the most exquisite desigu occupies one of the corners. A magnificent piano will oe added to-day that all may be complete. No luo has been assigned to the King for a bed chamber, being, as it is, convenient to bathroom* and closets.

One might almost think the hand of a magician had something to do wltn the surround ings. or that the fairies had fitted it np lor the bridal chamber oi Titania. No. 118 Isihedining room set apart, lor the use of the King ami iiu suite. It is elegant in every respect. The side boards glisteu with the array of gold and silver plate that will serve to hold the viands lor the royal party, anil the beholder is almost tempted to think that the Orient had been robbed of some or its priceless jewels to enhance the beauty of tnis apartment now to be n?ed by a mortal king. The pictnies that hang on tne walls are seemingly, clioseij lor their luscious beauty that thev may not only please the eye but produce au appetite ana give zest 10 the banqueters. ?o much ior the King's apart. ents; NOW KOR His St'tTE.

At last Ids dream in realized, ana for tiie uext week be will i be the centre ol attraction in New Vork society. ! It is possibly a happy laet for the >andwirti Islands | that ilie visit of iiieir monarch 10 the I'liti-d Mate# has been postponed until rtie present i moment. None of the King's predecessors, with j the exception of Kamehameha IV. (the husband ol Queen ktiuiia) would have reflected much credit ! upon the lit tie lusuiar kingdom. The ;ate King | l.unaliio, kuown fanilll.irly as ??Prince Bin," was a 1 gt uilemun of roval lineage aud high culture, tint ' a slave to drink, and totally unmanageable when nnder its Influence. Lunall'o's predecessor, ! Kainetiaraeiia V., visited ttfis country when simply I ?'I'riute Lot," but was ho mortUUd , by iil? tjectment from a New \ork i street car on tue iftound 01 Ills being presumably | of Alrican ancestry that ne never repeated his visit when he succeeded to the unique leather j robe that murks Hawaiian royalty. It was no loss to tins country aud a possible gain to rtie Hawaiian people that this monarch concluded to stay at home. He was a gross sensualist, without any re deeming traits, and In appearance aud manner extremely repulsive. He WM a professed Chris tian, tiut ancient superstition always sw.iyed nini. and an old woman who pro(c?se 1 to be rue inherit ress or the secrets of Hawaiian mythology had over him an unbounded influence, which frequently worked to the detriment oi uls state policy. As may oe supposed, from the fact of Ills weighing three hundred pounds and being tuimod"rately Intemperate, r>oth in eating and drinking, an apo plectic lit carried lnui ott and released the islauds irom an Intolerable obstacle io progress. It Is to be retrretted that King David has not brought with mm souie samples oi Island beauty j 01 the gentler sex. New York oelles may be as- i sured that mere is plenty of beauty of the most I classic type to be found in His Majesty's dnuiin- ; ions. The King's own sisters, both married to I foreigners, would compete successfully with any \ lady ol the land tor grace and social ease, while j there is a young generation growing up of mixed ! American and native blood that any country 1 might be proud oi both for force of Intellect and physical excellence. The two prominent , otllcors who accompany the King in his tour are Governor John o. Domlnis ana Governor John M. Kapeoa, the lormer an American by descent, and tne latter of unmixed native blood. Kapena is a very remarkable tuan, aud would be prominent wnerever ins lot might be east. A warm personal friend of the King, and the prince oi good fellows In hlmseli, he Is destined to play an impor tant part in the islands unless annexation occurs sooner than Is now anticipated, hvery i American who has visited Honolulu will remem- i ber Governor Domlnis and nls extensive hospi.
