- \Vasiiinotox, May 17.?A New York
correspondent has) this to say of lilaiuo and
the Independent movement In Pennsrl
|? vania:
uc Senator 'Mitchell*, declares lusintenHon
to tight Cameron and all liis ways. When
id- told that by so doing he will tight the Adig
ministration and I030 its favor, Ins reply is:
"So be it." The power behind Mitchell is
' Blaine. It is Blaine's light.' There was
bound to be n row in Pennsylvania, whatill
ever the convention did. A ti^ht there
ig this fall is a necessary part of the Blaine
' scheme. . . ^ \. ..-r .
ll|? The ex-secretary's plan is to show-himsi
self in the autumn elections everywhere,
la Blaine may or may not conclude to be a
ey Presidential candidate himself. That
^ question he may not'have deteuiined iii his
ea own mind. But he has determined that
*e, Arthur shall not bo nominated if he can
iio prevent it.
Whoever tliiuks Blaine is to let things
^ slido and retire on the receding wave, de,2*
ceives himself. . If he' cannot realize his
;h, ambition* as to the Presidency, he can at
L. lea-st have something important to say
about others. He. intends to dictate, who
. shall go-to the rear.,. If it 'bo' true [he is
01 there, he intends to'have company,
od He begins -in Pennsylvania because the
Is- convention there emn<? eiirlu'HL~~~ITn )???
Qt ull the more relish for that light because lie
n has a tangible foe there, and because, if lie
?? succeeds there, the result will go :i good
e- way. Cameron may as well understand
ild that it is Blaine he is contendimr with, and
,ar not Mitchell, nor Wayne MacVeagh, nor
' the Committee of One Hundred solely. He
ls will be opposed by ;all the,enginery which
id Blaine is able to put in ^motion tnrougb
>el them.
Ttiis explains Mitchell's unexpected hos.
tility. Maine took him up on the moun110
tain and showed him many things. He
ns has taken the trip with others, and not in
on Pennsylvania aloiie^i;:,
Ie Already Blaine rs'Heginnihg to 1)e felt in
. Virginia, where Mr. Dezendorf manifests
the courage and purpDse usual after having
ng come down from the mountain. i.hiine
to has had Ilia finger in the Virginia pie ail
ja the time, and Mr. Mahono is able to say
with what effect.. Ih'.Ohio the ex-secretary
11,1 is working his plans. FWVhen conventions
er begin to. bo UeUlftt will be discovered how
no he is doing it:* Aftei^Pennsylvaniaf-Ohio
,C(j is the special field of his operation. Jle
has particular objects to achievo there, and

said to contain numerous documents and u

as follows: "The committor on foreign
affairs is directed by tlio Hoiwe to'demand

company , or to induce the United States

Tho committee then went into executive
session. ,,,After about .ten minutes tho door
wa-ireopenod and it was learned that tho
oommHtee had' agreed to Inform the torgeant-at?arms
that it had' no further net d

he might be discharged .uutil further notification.

Blair. Blaine occupied tho entire se^si n
in addressing thetcommittee, and j devote* l
consldjrable portion'of that addresi to the
creation of a cloud of apparent issues, nil
new, and supported by prima facio evidence,
intended to-discreuit me as a witness
and to destroy'the force of such testimony
IW T hflil n Iron lit' '
BlalPs recollection differed from mine 6u
a point^ hich Blaine and his friends deem
important. While Blaine's testimony, so
far as ittended to coutradict and discredit
me, was grossly incompetent ahd'mnph'of
it irrelevant, but by permission of the committee
it has gone.into the oflicial record
and out,to tlie Country as proper'evidence,
and an infinite wrong . has been done in
consequence, not only to ilie personally,
but to the very large interests I represent.
On the 12th. inst.y L was Iregularly .subpa-naed
to appear before tho committee, at
11a. m., this day, and to bring with me
copies of all correspondence between myself
and any person or "persons whatsoever,
and all papers and other evidence" in my
possession,.tending to show what I did or
attempted to do to enforce the.claim of
the Pernvian company, or to induce' tho
United States to enforce this claim. In
obedience to that subjuena I presented
myself , at the appointed hour, at the pluco
appointed, and was nskedby you. whether
i wits now prepared to comply literally,
with the total demand above recited.
I bud no choice but . to
answer in the negative, I .: was
then peremptorily dismissed, .being asked
no other question and being allowed to
make no statement and no explanation. I
now beg to ^notify the committee, through
you, that I am prepared to supply, in oiled,
although r cannot literally, ull the evidence
called for. I further state that the evidence
includes an important letter from the President
of the United States rocuully discovered,
correspondence with oJJicial and unofficial
representatives of Peru " and
with the Department of State through
my counsel. Whether ' this evidence
may or , may notj , be of
value to () ?> f'Aminiiiiui it
neither my province nor my ciiro
to inquire. I have "completed
my duty in the- < promises, ... in
bringing it as commanded, hat this
documentary evidences with, much more
which IJrieed not here specify,'enables mo
absolutely to disprove every imputation
upon/ my verneily ; and lithe consequent
vulue of my testimony, whjch, by assertion
or suggestion has been piitiuto record when

tho premises, iny personal right as an assailed
witness, isentitlod to consideration.

upon the committee, assuming s'6 gravo a
responsibility, an obsolute duty of hearing
a reply, as explicit os -tho premises' may
warrant. I ask no favor. I made no: suggestion
as to the testimony to bo taken or
rejected,, but Xd6!aubmitthat the committee,

Had it not been /or. the unfortunate und
dreadful occurrence of Saturday week L
am confident this;, would, havo been
achieved this reason. .Fuithermore, the
government would have been enabled to
abandon coercion nnd would have returned
