DR. BBATTON'S CASE.-Although the
excitement arising from the kidnapping
of Dr. Rufus Bratton has subsided, the
case is not yet ended. The British Lion,
noted for his tardiness, has not yet
growled out the stern demand on the
United States Government for the re?
lease of Dr. Bratton and the reparation
of the injury done him, which it wat
confidently expected would have been
made before this, and for the punish?
ment of Hester for his flagrant violation
of the extradition laws. Dr. Bratton,
although still under bond, lias returned
to Canada, and is safe from another ar?
rest, as by the provisions of the extradi?
tion treaty, no citizen of the United
States can be arrested in Canada for a
We are informed that a motion is now
pending in the Uuited States Court to
vacate tho bond which Dr. Bratton gave
after being kidnapped. We leam fur?
ther, that the British Government will
take no steps in the matter, unless the
Federal Court refuses to vacate thu bond.
Dr. Bratton having returned to Cana?
da, whence ho was forcibly abducted, it
is considered by the British Government
that the vacation of the bond is au
amend sufficient for the indignity of?
fered. This may be so, as British honor
is never drawn to a very fine point. But
wo fail tu see how this vacation of an
illegal bond, wrung from the victim
under such outrageous circumstances,
repairs in the least tho great wrong done
to Dr. Bratton. Nor can we see how it
repairs the insult to the British Govern
ment. The vacation of tho bond, we
presume, will end the case forever, unless
the in-coming Greeley administration
should take it into their heads to punish
Mr. Hester for his share in tho nefarious
plot.-Rock HUI Lantern.
A * 'MAGNIFICENT ECHO."-Up in the
Lehigh valley there is a hotel keeper who
has a mountain about a quarter of a
mile from his bouse, and it occurred to
him that it would bo a good idea if he
could fix things so that a magnificent,
echo could bo heard from the mountain
by persons who stood ut his hotel and
halloed. So he engaged a boy to secrete
himself behind a clump of trees, with
orders to repeat the words of any ono
talking on the roof of the hotel. After
practicing to make sure, the landlord an?
nounced one day his discovery of tho
echo, and took up a lot of people to en?
joy it. They called for half an hour, but
no echo responded. At lust, when the
landlord had become crimson with rage,
and was about to givo in, the echo came,
but not iu tho shape expected. It said:
"Bin down to tho spring for mother.
Fire away now. I'm all right." Tho
guests smiled, and mine host suddenly
disappeared. It is dangerous now to
mention the word "echo" ut that hotel.
Wo have received another version of
tho recent Pope County (Arkansas) mur?
ders. It appears that Dodaou and
Hickox began the shooting in which the
latter lost his life, and that tho Justice
Brawn, who was subsequently killed,
was one of the party of the Sheriff and
Clerk, and of course shared in tho odium
which their illegalities and crimes had
exoited in tho country. There is a high?
ly unwholesome condition of publio feel?
ing growing up in the State, whioh will
be greatly aggravated if the Governor
listens to the bad advice of Dodson and
his satellites, and declares martial law in
the denounoed Counties. Nothing but
the overthrow of the carpot-bag tyranny
seated at Little Rock aud sustained at
Washington can bring peace to tbo State.

How THE ADMINISTRATION ENGINEERS I
THE "STRAIGHT" ENTERPRISE.-It bas
been evident, since a very early day in
the campaign, that the administration
party, in its fear of defeat, was prepared
to resort to any munns of securing a re?
newed lease of power. Of course, it has
endeavored, iu tbe prosecution of its
most deeply-laid sobemos, to preserve tbe
utmost seoresy, and thus fur it has been
tolerably successful; so much so, that
while it has been rumored and more
than suspected that the whole machinery
of the so-culled "Louisville movement"
was being operated by tbo Administra?
tion for its own purposes, aud that the
petty local managess were tbe merest of
puppets io its bauds, the direct evidence
of tbeso facts was wanting. That evi?
dence, or a large portion of it, we are
now in a position to supply. We have
reoeutly been placed iu possession, from
a perfectly reliable source, of some facts
in relation to the secret workings of this
"movement," wbioh accord so well with
the external indications us to leave room
for no doubt whatever as to their genu?
ineness. The following are the facts
Witbiu a few days after the Baltimoro
Convention, and when it had become
apparent that some few Democrats were
dissatisfied with the nomination, it oc?
curred to a leading member of Grant's I
kitohen Cabinet that some capital might I
be made out of fostering and encourag?
ing snob opposition to Mr. Greeley as ?
might ba found among Democrats. The
idea, when communicated to his fellows,
found favor in their sight, aud it was
resolved to act npon it at once. In pur-!
suance of the resolution, instructions
were issued to several leading papers in
the Administration service to encourage
the feeling of disaffection among the
Democrats to tho best of their ability.
It became apparent, however, after a
short time, that this feeling of disaffec?
tion was dyiug out. A meeting of tho
kitchen Cabinet was called, this time not
more than 50? miles from Indianapolis,
and at this meeting it was insisttd that
all which was needed to make the move?
ment a partial success wore a candidate
and au orgau. It was resolved to have
recourse once more to the almighty dol?
lar, and after considerable discussion,
the following programme was agreed
Charles O'Couor, of New York, was to
receive a professional retainer of ?50,000
for allowing the uso of his name as a
candidate at Louisville, aud the Chicago
Times, which had already coquetted
somewhat with the movement, was to be
guaranteed au iudemnity against the
loss to its circulation which was sure to
accrue from the open advocacy of a third
Subsequent to this meeting, and dur?
ing Chandler's recent visit, a meeting
was held in this city, at which measures
were adopted in the interest of Grant for
pushing the movement in the Western
States. It was resolved to appropriate a
sum of money for use in each State, and
the amount allotted to Michigan was
$10,000-05,000 to be paid to the local
engineers, and the other $5,000 to ba
expended in procuring delegates aud
How far these arrangements have been
carried ont, wo leave tbo public to judge.
It is quite certain that Charles O'Conor
is beiug approached on tho subject of a
nomination at Louisville, and tho Chi?
cago Times bas all tho premonitory
symptoms of an entire readiness to bo
tho organ of the movement should tho
other part of tho agreement bo carried
out aud Mr. O'Conor accept the nomina?
tion. Confirmation of the agreement]
concerning Michigan is found in this
State. Tho letters recently published in
the Free Press, showing that mou have
been approached with oilers of a trip to
Louisville, with all expenses paid, if they
would go as delegates, self-appointed,
arc very siguiticaut, especially as the
offers emanate from ouo who, however
willing to devote a little timo to tba gra
tiiicatiou of private revenge, is well
known as one who would not spend his
own money in pulling Grant's chestnuts
from the lire.-Detroit Free Press.
A HUMILIATING SPECTACLE.-Thc Bos?
ton Post stigmatizes tno spectacle ex?
hibited by the Grant Cabinet as humili?
ating aud without a parallel in our
republican history. Robeson, Secretary
of the Navy, takes his carriage and
horses on a Government vessel to Ports?
mouth, whence he mukes electioneering
excursions into Maine, speakiug from
the stump and actively employing ull thc
arts of the consummate demagogue. He
is using tho people's money to obstruct
their free choice in the election. Cress?

A Novell IN ONB CHAPTER.-A roman?
tic marriage took place at the Garoo
House, Wyandotte City, on Saturday
last. The circumstances ur? these: A
Miss Moshier, living in Freeport, Ste?
venson Connty, III., became engaged to
a young man named Morrison, of the
aame place. Business being dull there
in 1865, the time our story commenoeB,
he concluded to try bis fortunes in Cali?
fornia. He departed, promising to write
regularly, and either come or send for
her as soon as fortune smiled upon him.
Two weary years rolled by, and she re?
ceived no letters from him, and nothing
was heard by his or her friends of his
whereabouts. A report about this time
was circulated by a young man named
Shipman, postmaster of Freeport, that
Morrison was married. Although hardly
oredited by Miss Moshier, still his long
silence, together with the report of his
marriage, made her corns to tho conclu?
sion that she was forgotten. Shipman
now beoame very assiduous in his atten?
tions to ber, and after a short courtship
asked her to beoome his wife. She,
stung with the treatment of her first
love, consented, and they wore married,
and oonoluded to make their homo oui

as be expected, she upbraided him fo:

last, and who is now six and a half feet
in height and well sized in proportion.
His growth is extraordinary but not Bud?
den. At three months he weighed fifty
pounds, and his increase in size and
weight has been steady ever since.
Should he continue to grow np to the
period of his majority, he will be, beyond
doubt, tho largest mau in the world, and
worth his weight in gold to such a maa
