^SPECIAL DESPATCH TO THE HERALD BY CABLE.]
London, Dec. '22, 1874.
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 President , in his Message to Congress, de- ;
ttvered on Monday, the 7th lnst., made use of the ,
following words In referring to the national rela
tions with Spain:?"The deplorable strife in Cuba >
continues without any marked onange In the reia- >
tive advantages ol the contending loroes. 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.
OUR relations WITH SVAIN.
"I had couttdentlv hoped at nils time to an
nouiice the arrangement ol some of the important ;
questions between this government, and that of
bpaln, but the negotiations have been protracted. I
The unnappy intestine dissenslous 01 Spain com
mand our profound sympathy, and must ue ac
cepted as perhaps a cause 01 some delay. An early
settlement, in part at least, 01 ttie questions oe- 1
tween the governments Is hoped tor. In the
(neautime, awaiting the results of immediately
pending negotiations, l defer a mriher and inller
communication un the subject 01 the relations of
this country and Spain."

Berlin. Dec. 22, 1874.
Tbe North Qerwav Gazette publishes the follow
ing details of another plot against the life of
Bismarck:?
In September. 1873, a French Archbishop re
ceived an anonymous letter, the author of which
offered to kill Bismarck lor $12,ooo. In a second
letter the writer enclosed a photograph and gave
his name and address as lollowa:? "Duchesne
Poacelet, Rue Leopold, Seraing."
The Archbishop communicated these letters to
the French government, whicti informed Bismarck
of the affair. Poacelet, who was roand and identi
fied as a workman, was watched. It was ascer
tained that he was preparing to go to Germany;
but, becoming aware of the police surveillance, he
relinquished tils intention.

says the streets presented an animated and bril
liant appearance. The nignt was bright and fine, :
though somewhat chilly, and nothing marred the

enter the lists with the Pacific Mall Steamship
Company on that particular route, and that to

that, in the coullucucc that a virtuous public sen

grant us that relief which neither their sense or
justice nor regard for the fundamental institu

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

should be substituted for another as publlo

At a meeting held this evening this address was

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. His ;
speech embraced all the previous arguments made
public in tavor of the scheme.
Mr. C. P. Cook, oneoi the Trustees or the Bos
ton, Hartlord and Erie, pointed out on tne map
the route ny which Mayor Eastman came irom
Poughkeepsie, and which differs from the line
wbicn he proposes to open next July, in this con
templated business cue route will be the same
ironi Boston to Hartford, viz., the New York and
New t-.nglanu Railroad. Beyond Hartford there
would be a different road, now open to through
trains as far as Pongnkeepsie. But with no out
let west irom Poughkeepsie the road would have
to depend upon the local traffic or mat city.
Hon. Josian Qulncy said he would gladly aid in
any enterprises whic:i would give the peopl&of
Boston cheap coal aud cheap food, ano enable imn
to travel west of New York without riding in a
stage coach through that city. He hoped that
every eudeavor would be made to secure this new
line to tne interior 01 the country, and if only ]
$600,000 was needed ne thought It could be raised. ;
On motion ol Mr. John B. Bartlett ttie lollowlng j
gentlemen were apDOintea a committee to investi
gate the proposed railroad route and report at
some itiuire day:?John Cumming-, A. ti. luce, F.

Puritans ol England were singularly lortunate in ;
betnu born at the time they were, In au age of |
the world that was grrutly distinguished, and the I
distinction that these Puritans achieved
was not the woric of any one man. !
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.
SENATOR CONKMNO'S SPEKl'D.
Senator Con Kiln k m responding to'The state
of New York," referred to ihe question or cheap
cosmopolitan rnpid transit and the currcncy, aoout
which he said:?rue vame ol propertytu tins coun
try is not in wnrit It is, but in where it is. tiring
the cereals ol the West Into the port of New
York without cost in moving them, and the
national debt would be like dust in the
scales. 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.
Mayor Vance responded to the toast "lbe Cltr
or New York."
A number ot other appropriate toasts were pro
posed and responded to, and the distinguished

committees oi the Boards Aldermen uud Assistant
Aldermen was Ueld in the ofllea of .the Clerk oi the
Common Council This committee consists of the
following:?Aldermen MoC'ftfferty, Oilon. Otten.
dorier, Kocti Bnd Falconer, and Assistant Aider
men Keating. Kreps, Kehoe, Brucks and Keenan.
There were awo present Mr. Odell, official repre
sentative of the Hawaiian Islands in this city, and
Mr. William N. Armstrong, a lormer schoolmate of
the Kmtf.
The subject of an appropriate programme of en
tertainmout was discussed at length. Mr. Arm
strong stated that tins mutter depended n good
deal upon the health of the King, lie could not
Indulge in any outdoor entertainment. He was
particularly anxious to visit galleries of paintings.

prominent citizens will be invitea.
PREPARATIONS AT TJ1K WINDSOR.
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

}ork, and of ton mated that it had
been always a favorite project with litut
to visit our modern liahyion. 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
