'J'hin surrender virtually achieved American
independence. It was the most brilliant
and elfcctive event of the war. Washington
allowed his great qualities an a military
man more in that capture than in
any occurrence of the war. It was a blow
well conceived and Huceftsfully struck at a

with the grandeur and importance of

he proHtituted bin office to political purls^es;
that he appointed 520 deputy marshals

marshals were in fact political agents and

Mclronftld expects to rally all the Democratic

Democrats are embittered against Dudley,

and faithful clerks from the Pension
Bureau simply because tliuy were Democrats.
This fight will probably become a
party question, and if itdoes Dudley's continuation

the vote of Mr. Davis, of Illinois. Dudley's

Sr. Lons, October 17.?The alley between
Market ami Walnut ami Eighth ami
Ninth is densely populated by colored
folks and one or two white families. The
alley seems doomed to be a scene of tribulation,
und at times of wailing and weeping,
among the highly excitable denizens.
By night may be heard the gtihh of uproarious
laughter and singing, indicating lightheadedness
and the utter absence of larking
care und earthly troubles.
But the principal cause of commotion
which has disturbed the equanimity of the
colored colony duriug the past summer has
been the occasional raid of the dog-catchers,
who seem to take a delight in pouncing upon
ami making away with any unhappy
dog which may happen to Ik* astray, taking
his morning walk in the alley, without a I
license collar around his neck. The dog

carried off by a man, which story was repeated
to a reporter by the boy yesterday
in the presence of his father ami mother,
the latter remarking that "Johnny tells
nothing but the truth." The boy's* story,
though a little lame in its geography, when
connected together was about us follows:
He said he was on his way to school, when
he saw a man with a wagon and a yoke of
oxen standing in front of a saloon. He
did not know the name of the saloon. The
man asked him to stand by the wagon until
he went in ami got a drink. He then came
out ami asked Johnny to get into the wagon
and take a ride. He passed over the big
hridtre. and when Johmiv wanted to iret
out the man Killed him by placing Itis
liuud over hin mouth. After crossing the
bridge the man left the wagon and took
Johnny down along the bank of the river
a niece, when he made him get into a boat,
which wits more like a raft than a skill'.
There were two women and another man
on board the raft. They Htruck out into
the river and went down stream. Johnny
but tho people on the boat wouldn't let
him. lit* screamed out and they told him
o Stop.
They floated down till they uot to an- j
other river and went up that. He heard
the name of it called the Merameo. Hut he I
thought it wan the Ohio, and that he wan
near Cairo. At night he slept in the weeds
and thought he was bitten by a Hiiake. I le
shown four Htuall scare on his left hand,
which look like big mosquito bites.
Johnny said he made un his mind to
escape j and he got away from these bad
people. He wandered along and came to
a river. It was a narrow stream. He prevailed
on a man to take him acrosM the
river in about.
The man wwn hunter and had several
wild geese with him, which he had shot.
They had hardly got into the stream when
an Indian squaw came up to the shore
thev bad just left. She was decked out
with ear rings that hung down her shoulders,
and she had a belt around her waist
from which dangled a scalping knife and a
number of hatchets. Sho gave a whoop,

Captain Painter, who has charge of the

[The following is a description of the
monument that will be dedicated to-morrow
The Yorktown .Monument, from the
point of view of sentiment, is intended to
convey, in architectural language, the idea
set forth in the dedicators inscription, that
by the victory of Yorktown the independence
of the I'nited States of America was
achieved, or brought to linal accomplishment.
The four sides of the base contain: First,
an inscription dedicating the monument as
a memorial of the victory; second, an inscription
presenting a succinct narrative
of tlie siege, prepared iu accordance with
the original archive*) in the Department
of State; third, the treaty of alliance with
the King of France ; ami fourth, the treaty
of peace with the Kingof Kngland. hi the
pediments over these four sides respectively
are presented carved in relief: First,
emblems of nationality; second, emblems
of war; third, emblems of the alliance;
and fourth, emblems of peace.
The base is thus devoted to the historical
statement; it explains the subsequent incidents
of the monumental composition,
which are intended solely to appeal to the
imagination. The immcdiato result of the
historical events written upon the base
was the happy establishment of a national
union of thirteen vouthful, free ami independent
States, l'o celebrate this joyful
union the sculptor has represented upon
the circular podium which arises from the
base a solemn dance of thirteen typical female
llimres hand in hand, encirclinir the
drum, which bears upon a licit beneath
their feet the words, "One country, oih?
constitution, one destiny." It in a symbol
I of the birth of freedom.
The column which spring* from this
podium may be accepted as the symbol of
the greatness and prosperity of the nation
after a century of varied experience, when
thirty-eight free andlndc|Hjndent State* are
shining together in mighty constellation. It
is the triumphant sign of the fulfillment of
the promise?an exnression of the strength
and beauty of the I nion; but the powerful
nation does not forget the remote begin*
ning of its pros]h>rity, and in the midst of
| its shining stars, beam aloft the shield of
Yorktown covering the branch of Peace.
As the existence of the nation is a proof
of the possibility of a government of the
people, the column thus adorned culminates
with liberty herself, star-crowned,
and welcoming the people of all nations to
share <*(|ua1ly with us the fruits of our pence
and prosperity.
The principal dimensions of the monument
are in height as follows: Base
ft. Hinchcs; jHxlium, 14 feet 4 inches; shaft,
Jlf? feet 1 inch; capital, fi feet 4 inches; pedestal
:i feet 1) inches; figure, 11 feet 4 inches,
making the total height from the liottoin of
the base, resting on the outface of the
ground, to the top of the figure, M5 feet 0
inches. The bottom of the base covers a
surface area of 014.50 feet. The area for
inscriptions on each side of the base is
15,(180 square Inches. The greaU?st diameter
of the ixidium is H feet !l inches, the

New Yoiik, October 17.?News from
China under date of September 11 in t<i the
following effect: The couMtruotion of the
telegraph line from Shanghai to Tientsin,
is progressing satisfactorily. The presence
of the government oflieials and the government
nUunp on the property law checked
whatever feelings of hostility the natives
may have felt forHtieh an innovation. The
line is expected to open for business by
the end of the year. The China Merchant*)'
and Navigation Company has invited a
subscription for a special purixwe. It is
presumed to be for the. completion of a
tramway system which is to curryj^coalj
from the Kaipiug mines to
reelio Medio. The hiiiii asked for is one
million taels, and is to be raised in one day.
The Kaiping collieries ure the first that
have been ordered to be worked in that locality
and are capable of supplying sufllcient
coal of good quality to meet tlie requirements
of parts of China from Tientsin
to Canton. An imperial edict Iuih been
published ordering Lieu Kun Yey. Viceroy
of the Tiang, to proceed to the Capital at
once. IVrg Yor Lieu, Superintendent of
Yangste defense*, will take his place. The
change is regarded with great satisfaction
as likely to tend to a development
of railways and other progress.
News from Peking states that the
health of the Western impress has been
speedily and miraculously restored by the
skill of a native doctor, who law been rewarded
with the red button patent of nobility.
The disasters to life and property wrought
inland by typhoons are very great. A village
named Ghettnsha, in Row district lias
oecii completely swept away wy noons, ana
all the inhabitants were drowned. A steam
launch was despatched to the locality, and
upwArih of two hundred bodies were recovered.

This report won shown to President
Arthur and the request for Tyner's immediate
removal based U|hiii it. It put
Tyncr ik? fore the 1'renident in a light of
having diHcovercd extensive evils in every

out the extravagance and favoritism in _
some of the very Star routes that have become
prominent in the accusation of tho
Postmaster Ocnorat against llmdy and

for tho resignation of Tyncr. Tlilv action
of the President in response to the rcouest

at the head of the Postotllec Department
until the conclusion of the War route
proHcention*. That he will only remain
until then is pretty evident from the fact of
