Conscience?The recent political canvass in
New York has demonstrated past peradven
ture, the real value of that "conscience"
which our ootemporaries of the New York
Tribune have been vaunting for years past,
as fit to be put far above the Constitution and
law?, in the respect and obedience that should
be accorded to it. It is, in truth, the most
11 unconscionable" exactor of disreputable
and disgraceful shift3 from men with pretence
to personal character, ever permitted to have
influence in public affairs in a free country.
Thus, in iU service, in the two weeks prior to
the,election, the Tribune was made to tell
most infamously villainous falsehoods against
many of the gentlemen, personally, who were
candidates for high places in opposition to those
instanced by that journal. Messrs. Seymour,
W ood, Barker, Ullman, and a dozen others,
were accused by the Tribune boldly and with
detailed statements of time, place and circum
stance, of most henious crimes. Indeed, the
stranger, on reading that paper, would draw
the conclusion that in this country men were
universally seleoted' as candidates for high
office in the people's gift, for the possession of
personal characteristics which in any other
civilized land would surely consign them to
prison as malefactors.
We need hardly say that these accusations
were false?we may add willfully false; as
no sane man could read them, one and all,
without concluding that they were deliberate
ly c mcocted only to serve a partisan political
end. We saw it stated in a New York paper,
that the conductor of the Tribune, on being
appealed to to publish a refutation of one ot
these stories of his journal, admitted that the
refutation in question embraced the truth,
but bolded added that the truth was just what
he did not want to publish until after the
It is not wonderful, therefore, that honest
persons turn away in disgust at the pretence
that conscience is the guiding inducement for
politicians of the Tribune school, to justify
notorirus and willful violations of the Consti
tution and laws However, the people of New
York have rebuked this so-called "conscience"
in this election, in a maaner which bids fair
to check i s insolence and demagogism here
after, as well as to rescue the Whig party of
the North from the deep gulf ot isms in which
its temporary leaders have been plunging it
deej er and deeper in each succeeding canvass
fur the last five or six years This New Yoik
election shows that "conscience," after the
fashion of the Tribune's, fails to pay. So its
mercenary pretended devotees will, of course,
abandon it, like rats deserting a sinking ship.
A large wing of its honest followers, it seems
to us, must now realize that in' its service they
are but doing the work of and relying on the
'?lather of Lies" himself, if they are not so
deeply plunged into the most disgutting polit
ical Jesuitism ever resorted to to efFect a rep
rehensible politioal end. Otherwise they will
surely understand that that cause muBt be a
bad one, indeed, which is only to be sustained
by such wholesale and barefaced lying, and
mendacity in insisting upon lying statements
fur the truth, as has disgraoed the columns of
the Tribune in the last two weeks.
The Fourth of July Dinner in London.?We
Lave, up to this time, refrained from com
ment1 ng upon the recently published corres
pondence between Messrs. Sickles and Pea
body, relative to their almost-a-fracas over the
dinner given by the Utter to the Americans in
London upon the last anniversary of our na
tional independence. Our purpose has been
to obtain iuformation concerning the unwrit
ten facts involved, so that in what we may
publish on the subject, we may do exact jus
tice in the premised We have obtained it,
ind we do lo. find, we must candidly confess,
that it reflects credit on George PeaL?ody, Ejq.
The Americans in London had arranged to
have their annual Fourth of July dinner, mak.
ng it as usual, wholly an American affair.
Mr. Peabody, an Auiericaa by birth, of great
wealth, but notiriously Anglicised in ail his
interests and sympathies, desired, himself, to
?ive the entertainment, and by agreeing that
it should be in all respects an American pub
lic dinner in honor of the anniversary of our
uational independence, he prevailed on the
gentlemen connected with our Legation in
LoLdon, who were, of course, active in ar
ranging for the usual public celebration of
Lhe occasion, to give that up. and adopt his in
its stead. To that end, before consenting to
io so, they stipulated that seats should be pro
vided Ikj: all respectable Americans in Lon
ion, whether acquaintances of Mr. Peabody or
?ot. That the President of the United States
should be toasted before tie Queen, and that
.he -'Star Spungled Banner ' should bo sung
without mutilation. 'Ihat is, without omitting
the third verse, that might be offensive to
Englishmen wno were expected to be present.
Ihe acts of Mr. Peabody, in agreeing to these
requirements and .-ubsiituting the entertain
ment at his expense for that contemplated at
the expense of the Americans generally, who
were in London, made nis dinner essentially a
public one. As such, it was becoming thxt its
nain features should be wholly American
Mr P. was under every obligation that should
govern a gentlomun in such a c ise, not oy any
let of his to d.vert the entertainment from ihe
sxpress end the Americans present had, in
issembling at it. lie, however, chose to act
iifferently. lie had the Queen toasted before
the President of the United States; had our
national anthem mutilated for tear itb so dear
iy-cherished historical reminiscences might
jffend the ears of the .Englishmen around the
table, and made his speech a mere occasion
;or toadying the Queen, the royal family,
[iritain, her interests and prejudices.
Mr. Sickles, our Secretary of Legation, re
5arded these actsot Mr. Peabody as a breach
)f good faith on the latter s part, and as in
volving a deliberate insult to the Americans
present and the glorious occasion that had
sailed them together ; and, accordingly, in
iigcantly expressed himself to that effect lie
ubsequently v.rote these facts to the Boston
Po*t, which drew from Mr. Peabody a reply
n attempt to justify himselt; in which reply
le denied some of the allegati ms of the Secre
tary of Legation. This led to a conespond
>nce between them, in which it is made mani
eet that the allegations of Mr. Sickles were
rue to the letter, and that Mr. Peabody es
layed to escape their force by the silly expe
lient of playing highfalutin.
We (the senior editor of the Star) confess to
10 particular admiration for Mr. S. Yet in
his controversy he seems to us to have borne
limself not only with dignity and propriety as
i man, but aa all true hearted Americans
vould desire one in his position to act under
uon circumstances Ue may feel assured that
he sentiment of his countrymen is with him
rith great unanimity indeed in this matter,
de?pite the invidious efforts of those to ridi
oule him, whose sentiment of hatred to all
connected directly or indirectly with the pres
ent administration is so intense, as that they
are willing to decry their own nationality in
order to get an opportunity to make a fling at
an appointee cf the American powers in esse.
A Silly and Mischievous Story?The New
York Times of yesterday, in a letter from
Washington, starts a surmise of the loss of the
sloop-of-war Albany, on the ground that she
left Aspinwall on the 2Sth of September, for
New York, and has not since been heard
from. The truth is, on leaving Aspinwall, she
was directed to cruise around and among the
West India Islands, and if concluding her
cruise before the first of the present month, to
make for Portsmouth, N H. Otherwise, for
New York. No appiehension for her safety is
felt at the Department, as it was not expected
there that she would sail for the United States
mu;h, is any, before this time.

The ladies' fair, which for the last ten days

an auction sale of the articles remaining on

Marshall House under the auspices of the
