The Boliers' Caucus.
- The Teculta of the meeting at Lyman'i
Ball last night arc most encouraging to all
who desire the triumph of the entire Union
ticket at the coming election; for they
demonstrate the utter insignificance of the
effort which is being made to diride
the Union party and give the vic
tory to the Vallandigham Democracy.
The entire movoment is one of
the weakest ever attempted, and its
almoet pitiable feebleness was strikingly
demonstrated last night. Of the "two
hundred" signers of the call who had been
induced to affix their signatures to the
call, some from personal feeling, some be
cause the Union Convention had not
nominated them or their friends, scms on
one pretext and soma on another lets
than fifty were present, while of the Union
voters of Cleveland, who accept the nomi
nations made by the County Convention,
and -"are willing to support them
with unanimity and ' heartiness, there
were six times that number. It is worthy
of remark, as an illustration of the tendency
of all bolting movements, that these Union
meo,eomprising an overwhelming majority
el those present, were excluded from speak
ing and voting in the caucus by a most un
justifiable decision oi its chairman, while a
man who declared that he was not a mem
ber of the Union party and that he voted
for HoClellan at the last election, took an
active part in it. This is in perfect accord
with the whole character of the move
ment, which can have no other tendency
than the election of Ike Vallandigham
candidates. The decision, however, proved
of no avail, for the majority immediately
seceded and held another meeting, at which
the Union county ticket was endorsed with
emphatic unanimity.
We predict that not one hundred votes
will be alienated from the Union ticket to
the support of the candidate nominated
last night. The attempt to divide the Un
ion party, and thus throw the election into
the hands of the Vallandigham Democ
racy, will meet with a more decided rebuke
from the people than any similar move,
ment that has ever been attempted in this
county. The only result will be to heighten
the excitement ot the election, draw out a
larger vote, and increase the majority for
the entire Union ticket. The only men
who will have cause to regret the move
ment will be those who have repudiated
the Union party of this county, and at
tempted to set up a counter nomination.

CLEVELAND, September 29, 1865.
Ebitob Lzadbr: In your is issues of the
28th and 29lh insL, you devote a leading
article to "The Fenian Movement in Ire

you views, permit jne, on the part cf our
organization in this city, to tender you, and

cured from English sources, and hence
partial, illoeical and unsound. What are
we contending; far?- We are contending

Travel throoeh the Island, what do you

the peasant starving, and all this in a land
favored by nature above all others, teeming
with all the resources that make a nation
wealthy. Consider for a moment the des

The Fresbvterian and Catholic are
obliged to contribute to the support of the
Episcopal church, whose worship they
never attend, whose tenets they do not be
lieve in and the Presbyterian or Catholic
student is debarred by lata from aspiring
the rank of scholar in our Dublin Uni
versity, though he was as learned as a
Newton or a Melancthon. With these
incontrovertible facts before them, what
wondor that the people of Ireland should
be determined to shake off the incubus
that has pressed them to the earth and
kept them there. From the tone of your
articles one would be led to believe that
opposition to British rule has been confined
to the ignorant peasant. You have read
history to very liwie account, men ; yuu
forget there were such men as Lucas, Mol
lyneaux, Swift, Grattan, Currau, Burke,
Flood, Jbarlemont, vne r rotes taut oimup

the enjoyment of liberty is that we are
ready to peril our lives in order to obtain
it. Soma such slavish advice was given
before the Convention of Delegates ol the
savaral Counties and Corporations of Vir
ginia on the 23d of March, 1775. And I
will take the liberty of quoting the reply
of Patrick Henry as suitable to our case,
as t was then to that of America.
Sir. we have done everything that
could be done to avert the storm that

The campaign in Northern Ohio will be
concluded by a grand mass meeting in this
city on Monday next, to be addressed by
General Cox and Senator Sherman. This
is sixteen meetings in six days in this sec
tion of the Slate alone. The Slate Union
Committee have done their part in pro
viding good speakers and plenty of them.
Now let county and township committees
do theirs, in preparing for the meetings,
and the people theirs in coming out en
masse, and we shall, wind up the campaign
with an enthusiasm which will confuse and
discourage our opponent, and will prove a
sure prelude and promise ol victory at the
Fenians Hoaxing the Irish Police.
The Irish papers give a sample of the
way the people play upon the avidity of
the police to pounce on the Fenians. On
recent Sunduy in Waterford, while two
parties of police, from different stations,
were at different Soman Catholic places of
worship, by- a preconcerted arrangement
communications of the most apparent laith
worthiness were conveyed to the constables
charge te batten to'Kilbarry box. The
communication set forth that a small
patrol of police who had been ordered in
that direction in , the morning had been
set npon by an . overwhelming number of
Fenians, that the life of one had been al
ready immolated, and that the three others
had fled to an adjoining cabin, where they
were besieged. One of the constables or
dered his men to turn out, to the great
alarm of the congregation, and hastened to
the spot indicated. The other, with more
prudence, lelt wit Bout taking nis men,
hastened to the station, and turned out the
Protestant members of the force who wore
home. On arriving where he expected
find his beleaguered brothers, he had
nomine to see except nis noaxea ieuow-
constable and party.
General Garfield has written a letter to
the Secretary of the State Union Execu
tive Committee, at Columbus, informing
him that in consequence of the severe
sprain which his foot received some time
since, he will not be able to fulfill the ap
pointments which" the oomnitteehas made
for him to addren Union mass-meetings.
Oil physician rajs that he canaot-uae the
foot within three weeks without running
the risk of permanent lameness. Hon.
Job E. Stevenson, one of the most able
and elcquent speaker of Southern Ohio,
will fill the General' appointments.
A letter from Lawrenceburg, Ind., un
der date of September 27, says :
Senator Sherman called tne General's
attention to an article in Harper's Monthly
for October, on "Fighting Joe Hooker,"

that one of the signatures was his own, and
was at once taken into custody. A private
soldier belonging to the same regiment was
also arrested. This caused groat excite

to a run on the Cork banks.

The Morning Poet editorially asserts that
the American government is strongly op
posed to the Fenians, and would do all in
its power to defeat them. It says Presi
dent Johnson and Mr. Seward are animated
by the most friendly sentiments toward
England, and the latter has communicated
the Fenian movements to the British Cab
inet, and neither the British public nor the
government will readily forget Mr. Sew
ard's honorable and amicable conduct.
The Daily News think the Fenian col
lapse is likely to settle, in a beneficial way,
the relations between the United States and
Ireland, and that the political relations be
tween England and Ireland aie likely to
be far better understood than they have
ever yet been.

The Herald says, a wonderful stimulus
has been imparted to e'gration from
Germany since the close of the war. A
Berlin correspondent says two new steam
ers are being built in Glasgow for the Bre
men Lloyd's line to New York, which will
make seven large steamers in the line.
The Hamburg and New York company in
the fmture will run one of their seven
steamers regularly each week. The com
petition between these German lines and
the Southampton steamers has resulted in
a considerable reduction of fare. From all
the projects now in contemplation .it ap
pear that the tonnage of steamer plying
between the United State and Europe will
soon amount to 1,000,000 ton.
The American steamers Fulton and

road seventy miles; the building of a
railroad bridge across the Niagara near
Buffalo, a structure that will cost some
$5,000,000; and, the extension of the
branches of the Atlantic and Great
Western Railway from all the principal
points where the main track is laid. These
enterprises will involve an expense of per
haps $100,000,000. But this is nothing
taking account of the real designs of these
Europeans, namely, shortening of the route
to the East Indie by a grand railroad
across the American continent

about the middle of last month General
Baker received information of a plot at

money k was known to contain. Tbe esse has

and placement in old capital jail of Brevet

at that post General Briscoe is an Irish- -man
by birth, and has been in command
of the post at Lynchburg since Lee's sur

Commissioner of New York, has been
Quartermaster at Lynchburg, and had in
his charge on the 21st of September $120,
000 in greenbacks beside a large amount of
captured gold coin, and bullion, which had
been placed in his charge for safe keeping.
Britcce approached Albergor through
Lockey, and proposed to him as the war
was about to dose, and none of them had
made money out of it they should make a
grand haul in eoncert and pocket $50,000
' Alberger kept the funds in a safe which
formerly belonged to a rebel officer, and
this fact was to give color to the charge
that the ex-rebel, having a duplicate key
to the safe, had robbed it
Briscoe was to arrest the Quartermaster,
his clerks and half the people of Lynch
burg to avert suspicion. The General
took an impression of the safe key in wax,
and sent Lackey to Philadelphia to get
the key made. Alberger, ostensibly in
the plot, informed the Secretary of War
and two or threeof General Bakers officers .
were sent down to Lynchburg to arrest the
guilty parties. Theee officers saw, through
holes in the ceiling of the office, General
Briscoe come in while the Quartermaster
