The lntelligeneer has acoounts from Al
bany, which eleot Clark rather than Sey
mour, Governor of New York by a plurality
of 100 votes. The editor doubts their correct
ness, however.
The Union argues that the reoent elections
do not provo the unpopularity of the Admin
istration, showing that the Know Nothing ele
ment in the contest had no reference to the
measures or principles of the Administration
and that its assistance alone enabled the op
position to triumph. Again, the editor denies
that the Attorney General had any thing
whatever to do with the Central American
Land and Mining Company, and rates the
New York Tribune severely for repeating that
idle story.
The Ssnttnel discusses the news from Cali
fornia, the forgeries of Meigs, the battle be
tween the Russians and the allies, and the loss
of the Yankee Blade. By the by, does not
this aggregation of startling events on that
eoast show that the Pacific side is fast be
ooming something of a place ?
We have reeeived a circular from the direct
ors of the Ohio and Indiana Railroad, inviting

In length, connecting Baltimore with the
West. This railroad is now open from Crest
line, Ohio, to Lima?72 miles. It will be
opened on the 15th to Fort Wayne?131 miles

CP* We are indebted to Taylor A Maury for
Leonard Scott A Co.'s cheap and admirable
republication of the October (1864) number of |
the Edinburgh Beview, always so gladly wel
comed on our book table. Leonard Scott A
Co., are benefactors of their country, if but in
their conception of the idea of furnishing the
Amerioan reading public with the standard
English monthlies and quarterlies, so neces
sary to enable on? to " keep the run" of the
literature of the day, at a very oheap rate.
We should be lost, as it were, without them.
The New York Eleotion.
The New York Herald of yesterday, of the
late eleotion, says:
Our own table, carefully corrected and foot

Brouson 24,080

J.1*1* 119.535

in that city for Seymour and Clark are as fol
lows :

C Ihe election for Congressmen, Governor
an 1 members of the Legislature comes of to

weeks the different candidates for office under

and defamation of oharacter are common in
the political Journals of staid Boston during
this canvas. If this thing is continued it will
soon be impossible to get any deoent man to
eonsect to ba a candidate for office. In these
degenerate dftys if an angel were a candidate
for office, his opponents would paint him black
and then cry out 4 There goes the devil."

Interesting from Washington Territory.

October 6. as follows : ,

as there is no jail here or even in the Terri

A very Unanimous Community.?We have
yet to find the first citiaen cf Washington of
either or any political party, (oxsept, perhaps,
t e forty or fifty who are avowed Abolition
ists) who does not express gratification at Sey
mour's probable triumph over Clark. It being
clear that but for the Know Nothing element
in the contest, Clark would have triumphed
(as, otherwise, a lar?e wing of the Silver
Greys would have voted for C., as well as the
large wing of the liards who voted for Ullman
to defeat Seymour.) Some of the Democrats
are beginning to believa that Know Nothing
ism, after all, is not the terrible thing they
taok it for. So folks go at times, In political
affairs. However the new element may have
" Punished" the Democrats in Pennsylvania,
Maine, Ohio, Michigan, Wisooneinandlllinois,
it has punished Abolitionism, Maine Lawism,
Bloomerism, Ac. shockingly in New York, I
and bids fair to punish the Whig party proper
as awfully, to-day, in Massachusets. There, 1
i: has in most oases adopted persons of ultra
free soil tendencies for its Congressional can
didates, though itj candidate for Governor
was, up to his nomination, a Silver Grey Whig. I
Subsequently, however, he ha* come out!
against the Fugitive Slave law and for the
restoration of tho Missouri Compromise. I
Having done so, we think it highly probable
that a very large wing of the Whig party of
the State, not Know Nothings, will abandon
Governor Washburn and vote for Gardiner, in I
order to keep out Judge Charles Allen of
Woroester, the Free Soil nominee, as pestiferous
an Abolitionist as ever squeaked his hour on
the floor of the House of Representatives.
The Massacre of Lieut. Grattan and his
Command.?It will be remembered that np to
this time, though the sad occurrence took place
near Fort Laramie some months ago, no re
liable information concerning its details has!
been spread before the .American public. This!
has been occasioned by the fact that the
whole party were destroyed. The War De
partment, however, very recently received
dispatches from Lieut. Col. Steptoe, 2i artil
lery, who commands at Fort Laramie, where
in all the faots are set forth, which entirely
exonerate the memory of Lieut. Grattan from
the imputation of rashness, which has very
generally been charged on him in the absence
of satisfactory information ooncerning the
affair. j
VN e extract from the dispatohes in question I
as follows: I
"Hearing it whispered about that the diffi
culty was occasioned entirely by the rashness
of Liout Grattan, I think it due to the mem
ory of that young officer that you should be
thoroughly intormed aa to tho fact*, and, there
fore, take the liberty of extracting from a
private letter just received :
brt aathentioated acoount seems to be
that Mr. Grattan, expecting to get the Indian
murderer without any trouble, went into the
midst of the Irdjan tiUago with his men and
P.!eC.e,J coul<i not w#u voided this, as
the lodges covered a space of three miles. The
chief of the LuJeas. auiongst whom the offend
er was staying went with Mr. Grattan to the
man, and be refused to go, saying that he had
?two guM and plenty at arrews, and would
fight. About the bus that Grattan regained
his command this Indian fired; G. ,hen or
dered his musketry u lire Ihe Indians who
had gatnered about him to t*e nsmber of fif
wdr^' P^P* O. their faces
ajud the balls passed over tbem, as d d also
the whole charge of the pieees which were
fired immediately afterwards. The whole
party was theu destroyed bo&re either the
cannon or the maskots could be reloaded.
They were all killed with knives and arrows
Lieut G. had demounted, and given his horse
to one of the men, while ho worked as gunner
his p7"e ',Uad' Wh8f* fWi> bj th? gid? of
This statement shows that Lieut. Grattan
did not take the initiative, and it goes te con
firm the opinion that the attack upon the
troops was part of a deliberate plan.
Liability of the Government under Charter
Party and BUI of lading.-A Quartermaster
of the Army, acting for the Government, en
tered into a Charter party with the owners of
a ship at Boston, for the transportation of cer
tain army stores to San Diego, Cal.; the Uni
ted States to pay ? specified freight and pri
mage accustomed. The Bill of Lading, dated
we?k" ?Qhsequently, contained a clause
not found m the Charter party, that the goods
were to be delivered at the Government wharf
in San Die go, if there waa sufficient water for
the ship to lie safely at the same. There hap
pened to be no Government wharf there, and
the owners presented a claim for wharfage.
It was held that if the condition iu the Bill
of Lading, (which appeared, however, to have
been inserted for the benefit end convenience
of the Government end not of the owner*) had
been inelnded in the Charter Party, there
might hare been come question in regard to
the liability of the United States for wharfage,
on the ground that aoonstraotion mast be pat
apon saoh agreements, not inconsistent with
their terms, and affeoting the probable un
derstanding and expectation of both parties
when their oontraot was made. But a Bill of
Lading oannot be allowed to oontravene or alter
the terms of a sealed Charter party. It is, in
such a oase, only the evidence that the partic
ular stores or merchandise to be oonveyed in
pursuauoe of the contraot already made had
been shipped as stipulated; and the United
States having fulfilled on their part the condi
tions of the Charter party by the payment of
the agreed freight and oustomary primage, are
clearly not liable to the owners for anything

that before making arrangements with Red

already made terms with various publishing
firms in Europe, vis : London, Paris, Leipsic,
Madrid, Berlin, and Stockholm, for the right
to its publication, and had aotually furnished
them with manusoript oopios of the work as
far as written, without acquainting any one on
this side of the ocean with the fact. After
these arrangements were secured, he, for the

hia original treaty for the work, dispatched
letters to publishers in European cities for the
purpose of arranging for the copyright or fur

Leipsic, stating that another publisher in that
city had already received and accepted a sim

some five months before'. On being shown the
