Tho follow ing letter from Ueneral M'Cieilan to a friend in New York will appear in the New York papers of to-morrow morn ing: Coaoco, Canada, August , 1S7?. My Deab Sib Your verv kind letter of the tenth has reached me, and I quite wucur wuu you jjicpiy impressed by the gravity of the iiBats involve i in this appioichiog Presidential election, ana Deileving tnat the honor of the cWiatry l. II .1 . . . auu iuu vteu-uting oi too peop;e uepena in no small degree ipon the zftssit, I feel compelled to depart from rao reserve that hasbacsme habitual to me. and ex- prt-sa the earnest convictions that press upyu me, unaer a cors ltutionat gov ernment the formation of political par tiea is a necessary conseaaenca of tha dl versity of human minds and interests. A. t t . uuiiiueuiaiisM ia tneir ciosots may urtuui oi an lueai reonmie. an or wiioim ciuzsos are perrecuy wise, virtuous, and - r i . . . cousequaniiy unanimous: but such aream cau never bo reallEsd on thl earth, and we mu3t recogaiie tl o fast iuat pojiucai naruos are not on v nciM. sary but beneficial, acting, as tcev do, risnca has shown in all nnnsii n tlonal cognttiee, that when any f.arty possesses uninterrupted power far a very long time, especially trhfin thn mi is too weak to Interpose anv efficient juecK upon tno actions of ths meJoritv. the tetdanoy ia that tha leaded become careiess ana Kcxierc, lorget that there is a-y power to wnicn tney are rcspousl blf, took upon tfiljo as a porsanal pos session and reward, rather than armbiift tru3t, and learn to regard their tenure as permanent. a, too, the legislative bouies become inclined to a system of extravaganoe, which engender corrup tion, ficilitatea the formation cf rings and flaa'iy dtsstrftjS the prosperity of the people. The only euro remedy in such a caeo Is that the people shall, through the ballot-bnx, plaoa the former opposition in power. That our country is now in the condition just described is proved by the universal and peremptory demand for complete reform by the peo ple, without regard to party. Among Demoerals there is no doubt as to tho banner In whlftb the change ehould be accomplished. With many Republicans the question is whether they can trust the professions of their party, or whether they mut take the disagreeable step o.' breaking away from old political associ ations, by leaving' the party uader whose administration all the evils of which they complain have grown up, and aot with the Damucrata, who, from the force of circumstances, must necessarily be reformers. I have the highest respect for the psrsonal character and Intelli gence of the RspUblioan Candidate for the Presidency, and balieve him to be an uptight gentleman; but it seems to ma quite impossible that he can change the organic jtion and policy of his party. Tho leaders who control and shape Its pnlicy wo'u'd bs the same alter his elec tion aa no7j and It is idle to hope for any change in them or under them. It 'is now abundantly evident that had not a Democratic bouse been elected in 1874, it vould have bosn impossible to unearth the varlcuj instances of maladministra tion that have come to Hghr,, and it is tqaaiiy clear that until the government passes into the bands of the Democrats we Ehall never know the whole truth, whatever it may be; and we need to know the truth aa to the past, that it m&y serve to guida us in the future. Be lieving, aa I firmly do, that every con eiderationof honesty and eoundetites manBhip, every tiUi natural acd indi vidual interest, demands the prompt inauguration of a policy which shall, in the briefest practical time, reduce every governmental expenditure to the lowest point commensurate with honor and efficiency; regarding the reform of the civil service in iia broad est tense, and with it the enforce ment upon ofUee-holdera of tha convic tion that their only business is to per form their public duties, and not to manipulate party politics, as an inher ent part of this reform; eatitfltd that it must be accomplished by financial measures steadily directed toward the resumption of specie paymen's within the shortest possible perioJ, I cannot for a moment doubt that these all-important ends will be bcst.Jand in fact only, attained by the election of the candi dates of the Democratic party. But questions of finance and reform are not tno only ones which affect our present and future. The recent war settled for ever certain vexed questions; for ex ample, the asserted right of secession bas disappeared in a Eea of bloody slav ery has been abolished, never to re appear; to the negro haa been given the rights of citizenship and suffrage. We have nothing more to do wilh the re sults, save to accept them frankly, and watch they remain intact. After many trials and tribulations, the States not longssince arrayed in rms against the genlri3sgovernment have re-established their relations with the Union, and re gained their autonomy. Generous cour tesy toward a fallen, but most gallant foe, and neltish policy, alike demand that we should leave no juit thing un done that will Tasters peace and wdl being to the south, re-establish fraternal feelings in the hearts of all our people, and cause cf onrrecent enemies to be prcud of and love the govern ment of the Union and ita flag. The welfare of the north is insep arable from that of ths eoutlr, and our country can never attain its full force and vigor uotii peace, .prosperity and kind feaiiog reign throughout ita broai domain. I believe that this end can b3 best reached by respecting the auto nomy of the individual States, so long as they respect the, obligations of the Federal compact. Allowed to govern themselves, public opinion, self-respect and.a regard for their own interests will certainly suffice to induce the southern States to place good men in effice and! to enforce the laws. Wbils of the opin ion tnat f ederal interference snoum never be resorted to, except in tho cases provided for iu the constitution, I also t'jink that, Jf any outrages are commit ted upon the rights, persona or property of any citizen, whatever his race, whethtr white or black, and the State authorities neglect or hesitate to do their duty, the general government" should urge and aid them in every legal way to enforce order and juitice, and should u?e all its legitimate influence in that diiec tion. But I have rutficient faith in the honor and ability of our southern breth ren to believe that, whea left to them selvep, they will well know how to en force just laws, and eecure the rights of tne humblest of their fel-loar-citizsne. In Mr. Tilden I am confident that we have a candi date possessing all the requisites that the exigencies of the times aemaud. In a long career be has given the surest proofs of ability and integrity. It Is a very easy thing to preach reform to an opponent, but a very difficult affair to carry it out in one's own party. This Mr Tilden has had the rare courage end ability to do. Against great obstacles lie commenced and carried through the Herculean task of fighting corruption and purcning tho plunderers in his own party, and it is almost superfluous to say that ch) courage, energy, untiring per eevtranco and acumen he displayed in these memorable contests, prove that he possesses, in a moat eminent degree, the qualities so much needed In our chief magistrate in the present crisis of our affairs. In regard to all questions of finance and reform, we have tho sure criterion of his past to enable ui to form positive convictions as to his future. Iu his hands may bo safely left the task of awatding liberal justice to the' south, while fealously iurd!ng the rights of tho north, And the issues decided by the steal htieleende j, I trust Suu ogiigw. forever. When elected I believe that he will enter unoa thodullss of his hieh of flea with the single purpoee of s jrving the oounuy ffttiniuny, ana with no lower asubltion than that cf demoting every faculty .to the glorias tak of rendering ire nation prosperoui at nome, aonorcu and respected abroad. I would like to appeal to those who in civil life have hone rad me with their friendship and support, and especially and most earn estly to thoee men to whom I have never appealed in vain my comrades of the war and to atk them to stand' once more with naa in our country's cause, In civil contest now, as formerly In a deadlier etruggle, and suppott to the uttermost the election of Mr. Tilden to the Presidency. I believe that the issues now at stake are similar to those for which vro fought-t!i8 honor and well being of the nation. I am very truly yours, geo b. m'clellan.

The great coal sale took place to-day at noon, at uauuici 4uuc, wxiiuu yvju cumpietsiy blocked wltrl coal speculators. Buyer i irum aii parts oi toe country were pres' entand Intense excitement rpigncd in tne neighborhood! tfagon trucks and windows wefe filled with spectators, while the actual buyers were congre gated in a dense mass around the auc tioneer's stand. The latter read the con ditions of the sale and announced that it was perfectly bona fide, and that no nsarvation was to be put on the goods offered for tale. He said that thero were fodr companies repr6jented.in tho, sale, but they werb not combined in any way and no effort would be put forth by them to keep the market up, and buyers could bid and rest assured that their own judg ment was all they had to contend with. The four companies selUnsr coal were: Delaware land Hudson caoal coal com pany; Dataware, Lackawanna and Western railroad company: Philadei- phiaad Blading railroad company, and tne Jfennnyivanta coal company. Dai- aware and liackawanna first offered one hundred and ten thousands tons coal. Five thousand tons steamer coal wis put up, and 1000 tons of it sold for $3; the price then fe 1 to 22 85. and then to $2 75. at which the balance was bought. ony tnousana tons were tuen put up, and the first pries offered was $3 50, at which over 15,000 tons were sold ; the remainder sold for $3 20 to speculators, who bought at the rate of 5000 tons bid: 25,000 tons of egg brought S3 25. and SI 121. There -was a decided manifesta tion on tne part of buyers to wait until some one made a purchase, and then beat the price down. Purchasers were evidently uncertain of how far the mar ket might break, and many held bacs;. expecting to get good btrgains. In many cases they wero tti'iceesful, as prices tumbhd during the sals and then recov ered to beyond the starting point as the supply became exhausted. Forty, thou sand tons or stove started at $3 80, at which 10,000 tons went off; it then ad vanced at a jump to $3 90, and was rap- ltiiy disposed or. Tnia nnisnea tne ue;a waro and Hu ison canal company ' ttoc&. The next offering was 110,000 tons of Delaware.

Of the 2C0.000 tons of the Pniladeiphia and U iadmg coal and iron company, 75,C03 to us only were deliverable at Williams burg by barge or boat, the remainder of the 125.000 tons at Port Bicbmbnd. Saventy five tons of fuel wa3 put up, and 5000 tons of egg went at $2 67J; 25,000 tons of the same went at S2 60, advanc ed to $2 621, then declined to $2 50, at which price the balance was bought up; 35,000 tons of stove then commenced at S3 20, went to S3 22, and advanced to $3 25; 10,000 tons of chestnut sold for S3 20; 10.000 tons of steamboat, de liverable at Port Richmond, sold at S2 25 to $2; 10 000 tons of broken, was started at $2 45, jumped to $2 70 and then to $2 85, ono lucky speculator buying 5001. tuns at $2 45; 35,000 tons of egg, on same conditions, were next onereu, ano tuuu tons went at $2 30; the price fell to S3 25, and finally to Si 17. atwmcQ luure tne lot. was closed out. Fifty-five thrusand tons of stove commenced at $2 571, aud fel1 to $2 621, at which price the remainder, 50,000 tons, was bought up. Fifteen thousand tons chestnut, all Philadelphia and Reading railroad company lot, sold at from $2 30 to $2 75, at which the bal ance was bought up. The next lot con sisted of 80,000 tons of the Pennsylvania coal company; zu uuu tons cf grate sold at $2 671 and $2 70; 5000 tons steamer at S2 721: 7000 tons egg at $2 85, closing at S2 90; 25,000 tons stove were put and 5000 bought at $3 bu, tne price lamng quicKly to $3 60, and the remainder was disposed of at that price. At the last eaie of the day, 8000 tons of chestnut, the bidding became brisk, and buyers were anxious, me nret sate was at $3 421, aD(i ih Price quickly ran up to $3 50, $3 60 and $3 70; the balance was disposed of at S3. This concluded the sale. The prices tumbled from $1 to S2 ner ton on all the grades. It is said that other gigantic coal sales will follow. Pottsv'.le, Pa, August 29. The pricf s realized by the auction sale of coal in New York were anxiously looked for by ail engsged ln the coat trade, much surprise and alarm was shown as the prices were bulletined, the general ex pectation being that the sale would ba adjourned if S3 50 per ton, as the lowest figure, could not be obtained. The coal operators cay the prices brought will compel them all to suspend operations, unless the tolls and labor can be reduced to a much lower figure than at present, with the chances against them even of &reat reductions. As the miners will hardly submit to lower prices than thesa now prevailing, the situation has a gloomy outlock for the fall and winter trade.

A Block of Dwellings, manufactories and a Hospital and Hotel Burned llown at ban Francisco. Ban Francibco, August 29. About eleven o'clock last night a fire broke out in a box factory on Brandon street, jn the southern portion of the city. The neighborhood is closely built up with frame dwellings, stores anl manufactur ing establishments, and before two o'clock in the morning the fire had almost completely a pt away the large block bounded by Brandon, Town send, Third and Fourth streets, the only buildings eaved being the fine offices of the Central Pacific railroad and a few frames of small vafue, the latter mostly batlly damaged. Over two hundred poor families were turned out of doors, and the loss will probably aggregate half a million dollars. Among the buddings destroyed was the German hospita", a large brick edifice, containing at tbe time about seventy patients. Owing to the rapid spread of the flames the in mates were, for awhile, in a critical position, but were eventually removed without accident. The fire at one placa crossed to the north side of Brennan street, and the railroad hotel, a large three-story frame, was completely de stroyed. The treets for blocks in the neighborhood were littered with house hold goods and packed with dense crowds, while all the numerous emi nences of the city were covered with spectatots. At one time th6ie was im minent danger that the fire would cross Third street and sweep that portion 0 the city down to the Pacific Mail dock, but tbe fire brigade made a stand on that street and checked the flames there. Some of tbe dwellings destroyed were of superior character. Besides these, tbe principal loss is in the destruction of the hospital, the railroad hotel and the bor, sash and blind manufactories. During tbe .conflagration a fireman named Steward fell from a ladder on Brennan street and was instantly killed, his neck being broken. A number of minor ac cidents are reported, but few of a saiioua nature. Steamship Accident. Liverpool, August 29.

HwAral fnmllloa in (Via vicini y have come to this place for asidij, ano appeals nave been made to volunteer companies here for assist ance. No cause can be im agined for this outrage, which has thrown the whole parish into intenso excitement and spread terror among whole families of this section, where the g'reatest qfliet has hitherto prevailed. It is thought that this trouble is in con- SCdaenca of a distlirhanm nimirinr lnat Saturday at a Repub'.ican barbecu?,. wutid ejKui ur teii wanes were present by invitation, and were rudely treated by the negroes, their lives threatened, and were forced to leavp the grounds to pacify tho infuriated blacks, who drew repeaters and otherwise exhibited tho ftrocity of desperadoes. Fortunately, firing at the houses didjao serious dam age, although the shot in eacn cite en tered the bed-rcom. Steps have been taken to pressrve peace and prevent a recurrence of similar outrages.
