Mills have got William R. pretty bad Wrsi Union, Mr. Allisoo followed in a speech of two hours, during which ho repeated the usual stale slanders against the democratic party, and uttered more falsehoods and made more misrepresentations than any ublic speaker I ever heard for the same length of time. During Mr. Mills' speech he al luded to the extravagance of the rum pern and mentioned among others the item paid for the expenses of the committee sent to Kentucky to investigate the "loyalty'' of her members elect to Congress. Mr Alii son declared the statement false, and offered Mr. Mills Jiffy dollars if he could produce it in i.ny newspaper pub lished in the country. Mr. Miiift, when he came to reply, read from the Cincinnati Catnmtrciul the statement exactly as he had given it, and informed Mr.'Allison that he expected the money, whiili would be only a small portion of that he received for Eciling whisky frauds against the government, if all accounts were true, This brought Mr. Allison to his feet in a moment, and having strin-k an attitude, with one hand lifted to Heaven and the other on his heart, he solemnly declared that he had never! no, never! taken one cent directly or indirectly for settling any whisky case in which the government was interested, and that that was ^j!"81'audience'ICD aV- the Jii ft lime he had ever heard such a charge ago in ft him come from respectable sottrccs. Mr. Mills replied that it was tho common report, and that Joe Rhomberg himself told him that he paid Mr. Allison £700 for that kind of business and was ready to go into court and testify to it. This settled Allison. lie had no more to say. During the half hour allotted to Mr. Mids to close, he poured red hot shot with such effect into Allison and his party that he was greeted with perfect storms of ap plause, and when he closed, almost the ave W i entire rose to thi lr feet and ti,rce roU(ling cheers for Seymour and liliiir and threo lor Mill*.

Allison said, In his discus* 6ion with lion. It. Noble that the legisla ture of Iowa memoralized the Congress of the United States to change the route originally intended for the Sioux City branch of the Pacific railroad. At the meeting of the Legislature in 1804, that body did memorialize congress in the fol lowing language: Hesohed by the General Assembly of the Slttte of Iowa, That our Senators in Con gress be instructed and our Reprcscnot tives requested to us*e their best endeavors to secure a modification of the said Pacific Railroad Law in the following particulars to-wit: 1st, so as to allow said branch to run from Sioui City westwardly, to unite with the main trunk by the nearest and most practicable route—the point of inter section to be approved by the President of the United States. 2d, the said branch to be constructed to the point of intersection with the main trunk by some independent company, incorporated or to be incorpor ated by the Legislature of Nebraska— said Company to be also approved by the President. 3d, that ail the obligations, rights and privileges contained in said law anu amendments thereto, shall apply to and be enjoyed by the company construc ting said Sioux City branch equally, and to the same extent as they are enjoyed and exercised by the companies constructing other portions of said road and branches. A sad accident occurred in Davenport, Iowa, on the 3d insf., which resulted in the death of Mrs. Mitchell, wife of P. L. Mitchell, Esq., president of tho First National Bank of that city, and the severe injury of Mrs. Grenell," wife of A B. Grenell, agent of the Rock Island Railroad at that place. Five ladies—Mr*. Mitchell, Mrs. W. C. Wadsworth.Mrs. 11. C. Wads worte, Mrs. Mitchell, Mrs. Grenell—were being driven in a carriage, and when at the railroad crossing, corner of Fifth and Hroadway streets, the horses became frightened at a passing locomotive, and, suddenly turning, broke the tcngue, upset the carriage, and thew the occupants «ut —Mrs. Mitchell and Mrs. Grenell striking on their heads and shoulders. .Mrs. Mitchell expired in a few hours, her skull being fractured. Mrs. Grenell is still uuconscioui, but hopes are entertained of her recovery. The other three were somewhat injured. Ono of the horses was so badly injured by coming in contact with a dray that he dropped dead after running a short distance.

Nearly the whole of this great sum has been wrung out and collected from the toiling poor men of this country, while the capi talists,—the rich bondholders—by repub lican policy haye been txemptcd from pay ing any portion of the same. I have al ways been a republican, aod helped to ele vate that party into power but I cannot see any reason for longer continuing in power a party that can adopt and carry out a financial policy so disastrous to tho laboring poor men of our land and calcu lated to involve our country in bankruptcy and ruin.

New York informs us by telegraph that "For tho present, all mails for the Pacific 'states ami territories, and for British Co lumbia, China, Japan, and the Sandwich 'islands, will be sent bv overland mail, by 'way of Chicago." New York might have gone further still, if she had been inclined to give the whole truth. The mails for California, China, and Japan will be sent by way of Chicago not only "for the pres ent," but, in all human probability, for all tim« to come. Not on!v w ill the mails be sent this wnv, but ail freights and all traf ie of the most valuable and impoitant kind will traverse the same route.

It confirms the previous ac counts of the unprovoked and atrocious character of the massacre at Camilla, giv ing many new particulars of-the bloody scene which characterize the massacre and the ferocious pursuit. It remains to be seen whether those papers which have ac cused Gen.

V'it the Duliuque Tlmci. Letter from Grn. Vmutcver. Mr. Editor :—I am constrained to ask your indulgence for the correction of au error that appears in Mr. Plati Smith's letter, published in yesterday morning's Times. Mr. Smith says "Ton thousand dollars of stock was transferred by me to Mr. i Vandever, who held it for several month?, but for some reason declined to pay, and tho stock was transferred to somebody else." In reply I have to say that I never saw any of the stock of the Siotix City Pacific Railroad Company, nor did a dol lar of it ever touch my fingers. The true statement of the case is, that about t'.vo years ago, I cannot fix the time accurately, Mr. Smith disclosed to me, as lie did to many others, a scheme for building the Sioux City branch. Up to that time 1 had never read the provisions of the law respecting it. The wholo matter was represented in a llatter'ng light, and Mr. least compensation for my relinquishment. I presume such is the history of the eon neciion of many others with this railroad scheme. The ninth section of the amended Pa cific Railroad act of 18G4, removes the restriction which required the Sioux City branch to connect east of the lOOtii meridian and allows that, and all other branches to connect with the main line at any point they may select west of that meridian or initial point. This change in the law opened the way for a short and easy connection of the railroads &f northern Iowa and Minnesota with the main line of the I. nion Pacific, in a westerly direction, and if carried out would have secured us a competing branch entirely disconnected from the Cedar Rapids ar.d Omaha road, and would al$o have given us the entire upper Missouri liver trade. My investiga tions satisfied mc that the construction of the Sioux City and Pacific railroad down the Missouri river bottom,so as to connect with the Cedar Rapids road, would be a diversion of the Sioux City branch in contravention of law, calculated to work incalculable injur}' to the material interests of all northern Iowa. The connection so much talked of, diwn the Maple Valley to Onawa, does not remedy the evil in tfie least, but only aggravates it. Under these cireuuistancos, and inas much as it was desirable to have none connected with the scheme who were not in lull sympathy with its objects, it became expedient for 1110 to retire. If, in mention ing my name in connection with the affairs of tho Sioux City & Pacific railroad company, Mf. Smith elesigns it as a reproach, how- much greater in the estima tion of an impartial public, must be the condemnation of those who have plundged in so deeply, in utter disregard of any interest but their own. Mr. Smith in his letter refers to "nu merous other individuals in Dubuque and northern Iowa," who having stock assigned to them, failed to pay. lie says "it is unnccersary to mention their nam-s." Pray do, Mr. Smith? Let the public know who these numerous individuals are. Add to the list also, if you please, tho names of all the parties interested here or elsewhere in private or public life. In my past communications on railroael matters, I have not alluded to Mr. Smith, for whom 1 have always entertained a high degreo of regard* I have purposely avoided bringing Iris name into the con troversy and I do not now wish to be understood as impunging his motives. As a private citizen I10 has an undoubted right to connect himself with any laudable enterprise, and I don't know that he is to be condemned for being a stockholder in the Sioux Citjr fc Pacific railroad company, even though the interests of that enterprise may be adverse to the line of roads that he advocated in his Pacific railroad pain phleteof 1050. The point I have endeav ored to make heretofore, is not against the construction of any railroad in iowa, but against the diversion of government subsidy, designed for tho Pacific railroad nnd its branches, to a p'ug of the Cedar Rapids road. As to the letters published in the IIek ai.u, to which Mr. Smith referred, I can only say tly^it I am in 110 way responsib'e for their publication, nor can I tell whether they are authentic or not. Mr. Smith's failure to deny their authenticity raises the presumption that they are genuine. Wm, Vanbevek. The Two PLATFORMS. Diiiioe.'itatic :—The same kind of tuonej for all chissea of People. Radical:—Gold for Allison was said to be in it. The value of political thought. We have read nothing the land grant and the subsidy was esti mated at seventy Ore thousand dollars per' mile, while the cost of construction was estimated at not to exceed sixteen thousand elollars per mile. If my recollection serves me right, a statement of Mr. Blair to that effect was produced. Mr. Smith repre sented that he had one hundred thousand dollars of an interest in tho enterprise, that Mr. Allison lu.d the same, and that they were authorized to distribute a limit ed portion to such persons in northern Iowa as desired to become interested. Judge Hubbard, of Sioux City, and the Hon. James F. Wilson were also repre sented as interested. Tho understanding was that little or no money would be re quired to perfect the enterprise. I agreed to come ir. on these terms. Ten thousand dollsrs of an interest was assigned me, and a memorandum to that effect made, which Mr. Smith retained. Not the scratch of a pen was given mc, nor any thing else, to show that I was interested. 1 now, for tho first time, went to work to look up the law, and examine th« sub ject. I soon became satisfied that the Sioux City & Pacific railroad connection with the Ced ir Rapids road, would effec tually destroy the chauce of uniting the railroads of northern Iowa, with the main line of the Union Pacific in a westerly direction, and so expressed myself strongly to Mr. Smith and also to Mr. Allison upon his return from Washington. After this there were heavy assessments made upon the interest assigned to mc, which I could not pay, and an opportunity being offered I gladly relinquished. The whole amount of assessments that 1 was called upon to pay, was between three and four thousand Bondholder* and greenbacks for everybody else. Fellow Citizens, you can have no difficulty in choosing a platform that will subserve your inte-reats.

Ihe people llockcd in from the country, a large majority of whom were democrats, and wore much disappointed when it was announced that the discussion would not take place till evening. Many, however, remained. At a late hour it was announced that for sonic unexplained reason Mr. Hcnnctt would not be here. Porte Welch, of Osknloosa, came in by the evening train and proposed to supply Mr. Bennett's place. Mr. Young, by the ael vice t/1 his radical friends, declined to meet him. Notwithstanding the disappointment, the democracy determined to have a inc'et ing, and, at an hour's notice, a long pro cession, composed of'WbiteBoysin Blue," '•Cadet.-," etc., with torchcs and music, were parading the streets. A meeting, one of the largest and most enthu Masic of the campaign, was organized in front of the democratic headquarters, and wasaddrossed by Mr. Welch, Mr. Steele, and others. Tlie radicals were bewildered by this sudden outpouring of the demociacy, and at a late hour managed to get together a very tinall crowd in front of their head eju.irters, which was addressed by Young, and others. It was a lifeless aifair., Tbe democracy were well satisfied with the e\cuiii -'h work. Patriot Generals. In a late grant turn-out of Democratic ex-soldiers and civilians at Indianapolis there were thousands of that equals White it. I'oys in Blue. Many eminent Democratic heroes were unable to attend. Their letters in reply to invitations wcro rcceivivi and read. Rosecrans, Rosseau, McClernand and many other officers wrote letters deserving publication in types of gold. Wc give below the admirable letter of Gen. Bucl. The English language con tains nothing excelling it. Read it and then read it again put it in your scrap book teach it to your children. It is a history, a platform of principles, the ex hortation of a patriot, the production of a scbdlar—it is everything that is grand, and massive in language, rich and noble in AiRDrtii, Ky., Sept. 15. 1808. My engagements will not permit me to-fonn'1 accept your invitation to attend the demo cratic mass convention to be held ut In dianapolis, on tho 23d inst. but I am interested in its object and shall rejoice in its.success. Eight years ago, tho republican and democratic purties contended for tho administration of the government in the election of a president. The first, organized solely upon sectional issues, apealed for support to passion and sectional prejudices. Its leaders taught that a dissolution of the union was preferable to conditions which the constitution had established, and pledged themselves to hold no intercourse in society, business, or politics, with the principal class of citizens in the opposite section,—an attitude which could mean nothing but disunion or sectional war. In its public demonstrations it initiated a military organization, and with threatening motives, beating drums, and warlike tread, it filled the air with the premonitory mutterings of a battle-field. Opposed to this revolutionary spirit stood the great democratic party, which for an almost entire period oi* (50 years had administered the government with a wisdom and fidelity which were attested by the general welfare. Unfortunately, the sectional passions which had been aroused disturbed its councils and divided its strength and its opponent, represent inga minority of the people, triumphed at the polls. War came. The north and south were arrayed in deadly conflict against each other but it was not among the mass of the democratic party that the idea of disolution was entertained, for, while more than one faltered of those in the opposite party who bad helped to stir up the strife, thousands of democrats instantly rushed to arms to preserve the union and maintain the laws. It would be useless to revivo these memories at this time, fertile purpose Of meting out in just prop^Rioa the re sponsibility of the conflict which ended four years ago but in tracing the causes and devising a remedy for the evils which now oppress the nation, they are full of fitness. To-day, these parties again stand opposed £o each other in a presidential canvass. The characteristics which dis tinguished th?m eight years ago are even more marked now. The one, arrogant, despotic, revolutionary reckless of con stitutional restrictions, of the respective prerogatives of the government, of the rights of the states and the liberties of the people still by profligacy and wrong augmenting a public debt already enor» mous, and increasing the burthens upoii industry and trade by unnecessary and unequal taxation the other, faithful sis always to the theory of our government and tho true interests of the people, stands forth to remove oppression and restore the cons itufion to its just authority. If there is anything in our past history wortli cheering if it is true that the liberties of a ople arc safer tinder inviolate consti tutional rules than under the arbitrary dictation of any government, still more under an unlimited power arrogated by ono brauch of it, then the people of this country cannot too soofi decree a change in the present management of its affairs. A return to the support of democratic principles, by those whom influences which it is unnecessary here to describe have reduced into an unn it«ral poll .ical association with the radical party, will efleet this gr»at object, in November and I trust that the strength and enthusiasm of your convention will add anotl.cr to the many encouraging indications that such w ill be tho result. With great respect, your obedient serv ant, p. c. BifiLf,. Jii^souri, aIlho(i£ch larirely i^cmoeratie, has becu e*ounted by the liadicals as j»ood to give thorn her eleven electoral votes, because under her infamous registration law, they supposed they had practically disfranchiser'. the Democracy. It appears, however, that (he Registers are not usurping the illegitimate power which it was supposed they wonl i that the Democrats arc registering more votes this year than ever before, and that the Radicals have given up the State. 'ihe Hannibal Courier Seymour vote by a majority larger than that but "it will do." "it will do." When Rec'd. MARKS. rtA yer*, .Tnrk^nnvlltn, Tnwa... Jan. w, mx April 2".isiil... Ma!is t)et. 11.
