WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18.1363.
THE NEWS.
Our dispatches hint at far more than
they reveal of the movements in Virginia.
The people will be quite willing to be dis
appointed, and need no preparation to re
ceive good news from Meade and Ms gal
lant army, whose toilsome campaign may
be happily crowned with a splendid vic
tory. From Charleston, nothing new. The
firing is still kept up, and without marked
change. The part played by the present
bombardment is doubtless to keep the en
emy from extending and increasing their
works, and shortly wo may expect the
grand general attack in wMch the fire
shells arc to have their share. The advices
from Chattanooga to yesterday, report the
situation unchanged, and the contending
forces In such close proximity that a shell
from a rebel battery killed Rev. Mr. San
ders, Chaplain of the Illinois 125 th regi
ment, In their camp across the Tennessee.
A Minnesota battery fell at work and si
lenced the rebels.
The decision of Judge Underwood at
Alexandria gives a construction to the con
fiscation law it has not before received,
and which will create a flattering among
rebels It maintains that the confiscation
Is in fee simple, and complete, and not for
Die only as has been previously held. It
will have a wonderfully stimulating effect
on sales of confiscated property if the rule
be made general.
The Radical triumph in Missouri is a
terrible blow to conservatism, and raps se
verely the knuckles of high Cabinet officers,
as how our Washington dispatch shows in
one striking instance. The Attorney Gen
eral might have been in a better crowd and
In better business and may not yet be too
old to Icam. The little episode of Mr. Ed
wards is a most instructive one.
Our dispatches and news columns give
Intelligence of serious recent disasters to
our lake marine- The fine propeller Wa
ter Witch lias gone down with all on
board. Painful rumors are rife os to other
Vessels, both sail and steam.
The card from Hon. D, Y. Bell, Special
Post Office Agent, is worthy the heeding
of all who indulge in the common practice
of defrauding the Post Office Department
by conveying or sending mailable matter
through other than mail channels. It is
illegal, and may prove cosily to violators.
The completion of a new through rail
road route from the West to the seaboard,
is appropriately marked by the great Cleve
land celebration to-day. Any doubt that
another was necessary, and that this, and
all, must yet double their capacity, can be
solved by a little investigation into the ills
experienced by the trade and business of
the West, from an overpressure on present
facilities. Ask merchants with goods six
weeks on the way from tide water. The
country is filling np so rapidly, and all Us
sources of wealth are so strongly expand
ing, that it is not chimerical to expect not
only other great through lines, but all of
them double-track, with facilities for trans
portation only the most wide-awake rail
road men yet appreciate as necessary.
No decision has yet been reached in the
Wabash (Horse) Railroad case now before
the Supreme Court of this State, at Mt.
Ycmon. Indeed it is more than likely
that announcement will not be immediate
ly made.
A highly important circular from Pro
vost Marshal General Fry will commend
itself to the intelligent and patriotic as
instituting a good method of getting all
intending sneaks into line, against the
draft comes. A list is to be exposed for
public inspection both for the insertion o£
names omitted, and the erasure of names
.of those legally exempt In the face of
such open publication, the Government
will stand a chance of getting out the
entire available military force of the peo
ple, and that, too, without draining the
ranks of loyalty, leaving the Copperheads
snug at home to do the voting. The time
is near at hand when all this is to be done.
And all the people will say Amen.
We are beginning to do these things
better. There is a sound discipline enforced
by serious examples, that is having its salu
tary effect upon our army, both officers and
men- This will largely diminish military
•offenses, and bring up the general tone of
the service, heightening its efficiency, and
removing evils under which it has suffered.

THE WAR IN VIRGINIA.
It is not impossible that the people may be
deceived by the apparent Inactivity of the
Army of the Potomac. «
MEXICAN AZ7AIBS.
Semi-official advices from the Juarez Gov
ernment have been received here up to the
2Gth of October, from the city of Mexico,
and to the 22d of October from San Luis
Potoei, which say that no farther battles have
been fought, and but few skirmishes, which
latter, however, severally have resulted favor
ably to the Mexicans. The French are pre
paring an expedition to the interior, and the
Mexicans are getting ready to meet them.
General Comonioct, Secretary of War, has
left San Quaretero, where he will
assume common (Tin chief. ’General Uragua,
Governor cf the State of Micholocan, is sec
ond in command. The Mexican army in Ad
vance of Quare'.ero is about ninety thousand
strong.
General Diaz had left Mafutero with three
thousand men, to obtain relief from the
Eastern States of Mexico, and to commence
active operations against the French in that
direction, with a view to cut their line of
communication between Vera Cruz and
Pccbla. Bazin, Forey's successor in com
mand, who is said to possess liberal opinions.
Is opposed to tAkinyr the church property,
and always opposed Forey's policy. The
cause of Forey's recall is supposed to be on
account of Ms having unnecessarily precipi
tated matters.
MISSOURI POLITICS.
The following is the latest development in
the Missouri imbroglio. It is proper to explain
that it 'was written before the recent election,
which, according to latest advices here, gives
Missouri to the Kadi cols by about 4,000
majority, Mr. Edwards thus dismissed from
office for conduct contrary to the views of
the Administration and the State government
of Missouri, is simply a Radical, He was
one cl the Missouri delegates here, and has
been an intimate friend, if not also a law
student, of the Attorney-General.

W. W. Edwards, Esq., St. Charles, Mo.:
Slit:—Tour recent active participation in po
litical enterprise hostile to the known views and
wishes of the Executive Government of both the
Nation and the State, rendered it unfit in my
opinion, for yon to contiuneto bold the office of
United States Attorney for toe Eastern District of
Missouri. Such being my opinion, the President,
at my request, has ceased your office to be
vacated. Edward Bates, Attorney General.
A HERALD CANARD.
The New York Herald publishes a para
graph purporting to be a special Washington
dispatch, which contradicts the statement
onginsHy published in the Washington cor
respondence of the Cincinnati con
cerning the interview between CoL Forney
and the President, at which Montgomery
Blair was present, and In which he was very
plainly told the effect of his Rockville
speech. The paragraph is simply a Herald
forgery, macnitctured In New York, and not
transmitted from Washington at all. Of
course, therefore, it requires so notice; but
as it probably appears at the Instigation of
Postmaster General Blair, it Is proper to say,
that if he wDI father It, unquestionable proofs
of its utter falsity w&i be immediately pro
duced.
IMPORTANT INDIAN TREATIES,
Among the treaties to come before the Sen
ate for ratification, is one made last summer
by the Commissioner of Indian affairs, with
the Chiefs of the Creeks, by which those who
joined withthe rebels are permitted to return
to their allegiance, but are to be forever dis
qualified from holding offices of honor,
emolument or trust, among the Indians, and
the treaty engages to abolish slavery, as the
Cherokecs have done already, and to colonize
the freedmen on land belonging to the
Creeks.
TREASURY MATTERS.
Mr. Chase drew, last night, for five more
millions of the hank loan. There are
only seven and a halt more to he drawn.
Reid, the Florida Commissioner, has resigned,

THE Witß in VIRGINIA*
The firing heard yesterday was at Somer
ville Ford, and was occasioned by a recon
nolsaance to the river by a detachment of
cavalry. The Ist Vermont and Oth Michigan
cavalry were ordered to advance in dlrec-
tlun to develop the poiition of the enemy.
Dismounting, they poshed forward, and on
befog discovered, were fired upon by the
rebels from a battery on the heights. Taking
a favorable position, a battery of the 2d Uni*

artillery, their shot being effective and their
shells bunting amongst tie rebel gonners,
whose flrirg was very wild. The enemy were

Chattanooga, Nov. 17.—The rebel Look
out battery was quite vigorously worked yes
terday, alternately on Hooker's camps,

Shells were occasionally thrown into the
town, but their plunging fire was neither
accurate nor effective. No casualties are
reported here. Our Moccasin batteries have
splendid range on the camps in Chattaooo
ta Talley, on the east side of Lookout. The
Indications were that a battle would be
made on Hooker's position by a large force
of rebels ere long, but its strength and ad
vantageous position has led to an abandon
ment. ■
Latest information from scouts, contra
dicting former reports, states that the Wes >
em and Atlantic road is worked to its fall
capacity, bringing reinforcements to Bragg,
and the. road from Cblckamauga Station,
eight miles south, is lined with camps.

•THE VIEWS OF A CORRESPONDENT.
[Correspondence of the Cincinnati Gazetted
Chattanooga, Nov. 8,1863.
Interesting movements, though not a great
tattle, may be expected soon. Each day
makes it apparent that the enemy does not
intend to remain la our front la making a
close optical reconnolss&uce to day, I was
convinced that large numbers ol the tents
which a few days since were strung along oq
the top and at the foot oi Missionary Ridge,
have disappeared. This con be explained in
port cn the ground that troops have been
sent away, as was stated by rebels, to oppose
Burnside—a story which is strengthened by
statements in late rebel papers. But this
will not account for it aIL
Washington. Nov. 17.—0n Sunday morn
the cavalrv division of Gen. Ellpilnct, un
der the command of Gen. Basted, made a
reconcoheance along the Rapidan to Rac
coon Ford, to ascertain the troth or falsity of
the report that the rebels were falling back
on Gordoneville, When our cavalry ap
proached they were met by a few gnna from
the rebel entrenchments, bat our guns soon
silenced them. , ,
A small number of rebel sharpshooters
were seen In the lower rifle pits, and soon
afterwords a small body was discovered.
The river was too much s woolen by the storm
Saturday night to jnetify crossing, and so the
cavalry returned.
The report on Thursday that a rebel force
had crossed the Rappahannock and attacked
Kilpatrick’s forces is untrue.
Seven! English officers ore visiting at Gen,
Meade’s headquarters.
Information through a reliable channel from
Washington, is to the effect that two of the
divisions of Gen. Hill’s (rebel) corps had left
the Rapidan and gone southward, whether to
Tennessee or Fredericksburg, or to demon
strate cn the left flank of the army of the Po
tomac, it does not yet appear.
Washing ton, Nov. 17. —Rumors reached
here last night of cavalry fighting yesterday
cn the Rapidan. Firing was heard on Sun
day in the direction of Stevensburg, and again
yesterday in the same direction. Tho rebels
capturedawagon train yesterday near Stevens
bnrg. The cause of the firing yesterday Is
notknown up to this hour.
Generals Meade, Griffin and Kilpatrick went
to the front yesterday. It is evident that the
army Is not going into winter quarters at
present. •

The argument in the case of the People of
Illinois, cx rd., Charles N. Keyes vs. the Au
ditor of the State, is concluded, and the argu
ment of the People of Illinois, ex rd„ Harless
vs, the Secretary of State, has just commen

Allister will follow Fuller, and Beckwith will
follow McAllister, both-for the defense, and
Arrington will close for the relator, the Wa

and no opinion can at present bo formed as to
what that decision will be.
FROM ST. PAUL.
[gpcclalDlfcpatCh to tbcChicagoTribune.]
Sr. Paul, Nov 17,1863.
Official returns from the leading counties,
ond unofficial reports from nearly all the
counties in the State, give Miller G,530 ma
jority.
Full returns will probably increase this
majority to 7,000. This is a gain of 8,000
ever last year, but still it does not show what
the Union strength Is.
The vote -was very light, except in a few
localitier, where there was a contest in local
officers. Everyone knew that the copper
heads would be overwhelmed, and conae
qnentlr the campaign was too mild to bring
out the votes.
Set Minnesota down for 12,000, when a full
vote is polled.

jf lection of B« Gratz Brown and John
B. HeuderMta-Tlie Combination,
and- its Beaulta—Clayl»%nk Defeat—

[From Our Special Correspondent.]
St. Louis, Nov. 16,1853.
The leading event cf the past week Is the
Senatorial election. The first ballot was taken
on Thursday, when B. Gratz Brown gained
ten on his highest vote at tho previous ses
sion. From this moment the proposed coall •
tion between the Claybanks and copperheads
was broken up, inasmuch as the probability
of such a fusion had taken off several cUy
banks who were Union men at heart, and
because the furtherattempt to prosecute such
a fusion would have inevitably driven other .
Claybanks Into the ranks of the Radicals.
Tno absence of several members on both
sides reduced the number of votes requited
to elect, and the secret of the real strength
of the Radicals was wisely kept until the bal
lot began, Worn fear of illUbusterlnz parlia '
metlary tactics on the pirt of the Cuybinks
te prevent an election. The result was a sur
prise to the Claybanks and copperheads, but
t was then too late to do any mischief Toe
election of B. Gratz Bro m is a glorious trl
umpb, and added to the success of our ticket
at the late election, places Missouri right on
the record. It seals the downfall of the Gam
ble-Blair Schofield policy, and must snecdily
alter the President's view of the Missouri
question.
The selection of John B. Henderson as the
second Senator (for tho long term,)—the col
league of Mr. Brown, has excited consider
able notice. The Missouri Republican aud
the Claybanks’ claim him as an ardent Con
servative, which view ot his politics is
strengthened by the open discontent mani
fested by the Gorman Radical papers over his
election. It is simple truth to say that Mr.
Henderson Is not now, nor has he ever been,
the choice of the Radical party; but the
Sues tion oi Jefferson City was Henderson and
rown or Broadhead mid .Phelps. A mere
boll-dog tenacity holding out for the two
men of the Gratz Brown stripe, might have
been creditable in one point of view, but
in many others the election of Henderson
must meet with the approbation of loyal men.
John B. Henderson professed the most radi
cal sentiments. Personally he has no respect
forthe Gamble government and he is now in
good company. He has sufficient political sa
gacity to see the popular current, and will
not attempt to breast the tide. The late elec
tion has opened his eyes wonderfully, aud
backed by Gratz Brown, and such able Con
gressional representatives as Blow, Boyd,
Lean and HcClnrg, Mr. Henderson, it Is con
fidently believed, will vote right. He is In
favor of another convention to consider
the Emancipation question, and will earn
his election by voting to reject the nomina
tion of Schofield ae a Major General.
The verdict of the people, in favor of the.
Radicals, seems settled beyond dispute. The
Democrat's figures on the home vote are as
follows: Badical, 27,990; Conservative,
34,585—Conservative majority, 6,595. The
Republican's figures are a little different, be •
ing as follows; Radical, 26,270; Conserve-,
live, 83,188— majority 6.860. The soldiers’
vote is ignored by the Eepufilican but the
Democrat publishes the vote in detail. It
foots up as follows: Radical, 7,773; Con
servative, 585. If added to the home vote,
according to the Democrat, it gives a majori
ty of 593 for the Radical; or according to
the HepuUiean, a radical majority of 843.
There are about twelve hundred soldiers’
votes, which will be nearly all Radical, to be
added, and the final result cannot be
less than from fifteen hundred to two thou
sand in our favor, leaving a wide margin for
illegal or Informal returns thrown out by the
canvassers. It is quite urob&ble an effort,
will be made to throw out a largo portion of
the xnilitarv vote, but such on operation will,
if tried, raise a terrific storm about the heads
of the Conservatives. The question cannot
be taken into the Supremo Court, as all the
Judges are personally interested in the de
cision.
: Gen. Schofield is considered doomed to re
moval. 'With Gratz Brown and Henderson
thrown into the Senate, to increase the for
mer Radical majority in that body,lt is difficult
' to contemplate BUChapoeßlbUtyasSchofiald’s
confirmation. Grata Brown will thoroughly
espoeethe course of the Commanding Gen*
era! of this Department,and give a good and
square vote against him In Executive Session.
Senators Wilson, Trumbull, Grimes, Wade,
Chandler and Sumner have given their atten
tion to the matter, and thoroughly under
stand the merits of the case. The order pro
hibiting Jnrlonghs to members of the Mis
souri Legislature to attend the session which
vas so quickly and emphatically repudiated
by the War Department, might have elected
CoL Broadbead, IheProvoat Marshal General,
to the Senate by keeping away Radical mem
beis, IflthadhowcouldGeuSehofieldeacape
the odinm ot conapirisg to effect a politic *1
trick? Why should he be relieved of the
odium because the trick failed. This affair
ought to be • sufficient in itself to secure
Schofield's overthrow, and his consequent re
moval from the Department, the only eveat
now wanting to give Radicalism a free swing
In the' State. 1
These various political matters have folly
absorbed* the interest of the public'. The
military situation of the State may bo de
scribed as quiet Rebels and rebel sympa
tbiz*» are swarming in the interior, and ma
ny of them are doubtless slipping through
this city to the interior every week, but they
discreetly refrain from violent outbreaks, and
manage to retain an existence. In Lafayette
county, early last week, it was reported that
a squad of-six or seven bushwackers ffiad
committed various outrages, but as no Hres
were taken, the details are without interest.
There are other bnehwackers in Pettis; Sa
line, and Lafayette counties, though the cop
perheads have hit upon the plan of calling
them Jayhawkcrs, or “menfrom Kansas,”
hoping thereby to deceive the authorities.
There are also a fow guerillas in . the South
west, bnt they find a scanty substance to
prey upon in that region, ana will disappear
as the season grows colder. Ah a rule, the
guerillas are powerless for serious hormyand
simply need to he warned tube kept harm
less. ••
Gen. Schofield has issued s long 1 general order
Id relation to the enlistment of negro sokllera
lathis State. Blare and free negroes of col
or are to be enlisted indiscriminately. *Re
celptsoreto be given to all loyal persons
whose slaves are enlisted. There will he a
rendezvous for such troops in St. Louts, and
Col. Wm. A. Pile, of the 33d Missouri. Vol
unteers, is appointed to command them: The
bad featnre of this order Is, that the enlist
ments oro to be made nnder the direction of
the Provost Marshal General and his assist
ants. That officer has no hcait for enlisting
negro troops at all, and it is dubious wheth
er ne roll smooth over the obstacles or build
np new ones. The business will need watch
irg.or the fruits may be bitter.
«Ttic quota aligned to this State under the
last call is 13 510, and the number hat been
divided off according to the Congres
sional Districts.- It is announced ‘Semi
officially that unless this number Is taUed by
. the sth,of January, that the draft will bo en
forced.' The draft will have to proceed, U
that is the only contingency. Volunteer
ing in this State, under the auspices of the
Gamble government, is not a popular Insti
tution. No steps have Men taken to rouse
toe people, and the population has been so
reduced In many districts by the calamities
cf war, that bat few loyal men are left,
.An incident on the Pacific railroid hxs ex
cited the ire of the Conservative press. Some
Minnesota soldiers stationed near OtMrville,
stopped a train and carried off three negroes
in spite of the commands of an officer on the
train, who claimed to be their superior. Tde
merits of the ca*c are to be Investigated,
when it will probablj* bo found that kidnap
ping is at the bottom of tho whole affair.
The day far mourning over the loss of slaves

The Governor omits mention of the* Tenth

puisnlrgSfcelby.
The controvcsy in relation to tha restric
tions on river trade is still kept np by the
copperheads. Secretary Chase Ms ordered
the nioneypald on tho five per cent. chv*go
on fblpiDcnts down the river to be refunded,
whereupon the copperheads claim in sub
stance that they have forced him to this, and
then demand free trade entirely. Is it possi
ble that any real Union man can ba so blind
os not to see the uttter incompatibility of

military operations constantly near its

The Provost Marshal General remitted
the sentence of banishment against Mrs.
I'rusten Polk and family. The father, late a
Colonel on Price’s stiff, is now a prisoner on
Jolmron’e Island. The family Is said to be

CARD FROM
STEINWAY & SONS.
TO ALL WHO REID
Piano Advertisements
Desiring to protect a well-earned, and to us
most valuable reputation, no matter where or by
whom assailed, we call the attention of all inter
ested in Pianos to the following correspondence.
It would never have been pat In print by us, had
we not learned that our late agents in this city
had carried Into effect the Intention with which
they wrote their letter of Oct. 25th, by publishing
the first two letters given below, the publication
having been made in a monthly paper, issued by
'themselves, designed especially to be seen by the
trade and profession.
We give the correspondence without comment,
feeling that we can safely leave the decision to
that public who so liberally praise and purchase
oar instruments.
Very respectfully,
Stxihwat & Sosa, New York.
New York, October 20th, 1863.
Messus Root & Cadt:
. Gentlemen,—We ate very sorry to inform you
that onr Agency for Ooicago has bem transferred
from yourbonec to Mr. W. K. Nixon, of the firm
of Smuh& Uixon, Cincinnati, 0. We will hereby
give you a detailed explanation of ear reasons for
eo doing, showing that the step we bare taken
was fully Justified by the circumstances.
When, last year, you took the agency for Wor
ce*ter •» pianos, the Chicago papers were teeming
with long, flamlog advertisements and notices
written by yourselves, pnffiug these pianos to the
skies, while yon kept perfectly quiet about our in
strnmexts. This we would nut have cared any
thing about; bar when you published one notice,
which, after giving a grand puff for W. pianos,
said. “ Steinway had better look for their laurels.’’
It w as rather more itmn coold comfortably di
gest.
You will remember that, in December last, yon
put a W. piano in the Philharmonic Concert, wotle
onr came was pnt on the programme. We wrote
3 on about the matter, and strongly objected to
such proceeding. In reply, you wrote, (Dec 31,
'62,) amosget other offensive things, that “ you
thought you ought to apologize to Mr. Worcester
rather than to us.” This, gentlemen, wc consid
ered a gross insult ;’ond when, shortly after, a gen
tleman from LaSalle, 111., called upon us to bay a
piano, and exhibited to as a letter in your own
handwriting, (which was in answer to an applica
tion to yoa lor a Steiaway piano,) In which you
stated that you ** could scarcely recommend these
pianos, bnt that yon could sell him a fine 7-oct.
W. piano for $350. etc., etc.,’’ it settled the matter,
and we became firmly convinced that your heart
and good will was ro longer infavorofourpitnos,
but that yoa intended to make the W. piano your
leading instrument, and that, therefore, a change
in the agency was absolutely necessary for oar
interest.
Jufitabont this time Mr. Nixon called upon us,
stating that bo bad resolved to remove to Chicago
and open a music state and wareroom, and applied
for our agency. Believing ourselves foliy justified
by vonr actions, we promised It to him at that
time, feeling that you would not do justice to our
instruments any longer.
Although your dealings with us have been all
that could be desired since that time, we could not
break onr word and fhe mailer is settled and can
not le changed. We are, however, willing to do
cveiythiiig in our power, and will supply you with
all pianos at current wholesale prices, which you
may have sold unto the time of recleptof this
with promise to deliver them, and as an equivalent
to your extensive advertising of our pianos last
summer (which we regretted very much at the
time, but could not well prevent) wo will give you
the style 2 pit-no, sent October Ctb, price $lO7
at wholesale, without pay, and Immediately on
hearing from you shad order the draft at 80 days
for $307, Bent to Marc & Bertel for collection and
probably already accepted byyou, back here to us.
In conclusion we would say that we aro very
sorry on your account, as wo have no fault to find
with yon since last spring, bat that cannot make
your JOimer actions undone, and it is now out of
our power to alter the matter.
We remain, gentleman, yours respectfully.
Steixwat & Sosa.
Chicago, October 23,1363.
Messes. Sixikwat A Sons ;
GutTnsxzx: Yours of the SOth Inst., inform
ing ns of the transfer of yonr agency in this city
to air. Nixon, is at hand. Yen need feel no re
grets on onr account. The causes that wc have
hsd within the past year to be more or less dis
satisfied with you, your pianos, and your prices,
ana which are well known to you, entirely recon
cile us to-the trsnsfer.We have Cor some time past
seriously considered tho propriety of throwing
up your agency. Your action In the matter re
lieves na of au embarrassment. Some of your
complaints In the letter before ns (as for example
that relating to the Worcester piano In tee Phil
harmonic Concert) are too pitiful to be noticed,
ticcc you must know from the circumstances ex
plained to you at the time, that there was noth
ing in the slightest degree affecting our repeti
tion for houoiable dealing.
Since wo commenced busslness in Chicago, un
til wltnln a y. ar, your dealings with us were fair
aid manly, and all the pianos vou seat us-were
ZD’gniflccat, and this, too, without an exception.
We were proud of them, and proud that wo had
intiodncad them to tho Northwest. Within the
past year, however, it has seemed to ns that Just
in proportion as otbermakera improved their pi
anos, tiH they become dangerous rivals of yours,
you bnvo so for presumed upon your splendid
repiitatloatlmt you have disregarded your obli
gations to us as yonr agents, cxhorbitaotly ad
vanced your prices, and, worst of nil, sent out
, pianos in several instances defective in work
manship and inferior in tone.
Allow us to refreshyour memories on one or
‘two of these points. During the past year you
•have often failed to send ns Instruments a* prom
;lscd, pleading your inability to keep up with your
orders, while at the same time you were freely re
tailing pianos to our customers here in Chicago,
—a coarse never before taken to our knowledge
by respectable manufacturers in any similar in
stance.
Whenever on examination your Instruments
were found to be defective, wo have had them
carefully repaired, often at considerable cost and
trouble, before offering them for sale. In one or
two cases yon have In accordance with your guar
anty refunded oar losses, bat in the case of lira.
C. £. Hovey. of Bloomington, 111., whoso piano
vas really defective, as we wrote you about the
first of September, and which we had previously
taken back at considerable expense to ourselves,
you found It osier to call in question the evi
dence of our senses than to share our losses. Since
wejgalaed this insight into what you meant bv.
“warranted for five years," we have not troubled
yon with similar cases, but have pocketed our
.lessee, determined that whatever course others
might pursue, our customers should know that
when we “guaranteed them, satisfaction” we
meant sometniog by It- Under these circum
stances, duty to our customers has compelled us
to tell them frankly in various instances that we
believed Haxelton Bros., Grape <2 Kindt’s, and
J. W- YWe’a pianos were better pianos for the
mency than Stclnway’s, and we have no apologies
to offer for It, for It is the truth; how unwelcome
to us may be Inferred from tbs well known fact
that we have expended ten dollars tn advertising
your pianos, where wc have one dollar In pushing
any other.
as an acknowledgment for advertising that mast
inure to the benefit of yourselves and agents, we
accept the last piano sent us. (which, by tao wayfis
a very fine onejand will feel obliged if you will re
call the draft as you propose.
We hereby cancel all unfilled orders for your In
struments. If wc cannot otherwise please our
cnstorcera we shall cheerfully refer them to you,
or to Mr. Nixon, when, he gets established here.
To save answering letters about your agency,
and asn matter ol Justice to all parties, wo shall
insert this final correspondence entire in some of
the leading! ournala thatbest reach our customers.
We remain, yours, truly.
Boot & Cadt.
New Yobk, November 3d, 1863.
Messrs. BotT&.CAsr:
Gentlemen'.— Tour.letter of the STthhas been
received. Its contentaaro highly amusing to ns,
reminding ns . strongly of the fox in the fable
who pronounced the grapes sour after finding that
be could not get at them.
The closing sentence, however, in which yon
say that “ wc shall .Insert this final correspond
ence in some of the leading Journals that heat
reachonr customers," explains everything, viz;
Your letter is written for the express purpose of
being published, andto serve as an advertisement,
but was directed tons to give the necessary im
portance to It By this you undoubtedly Intended
to he very smart, but after all it is but a clumsy
trick, and too transparent not to.be exposed very
easily, and we will hereby answer and refute your
statements point for point.
Ton begin by saying “youra.of theSOth Snst.,
icformlng.Bß.ol the transfer oiyour agency In this
city to Mr. Nixon, is at hand. You need foci no
. regrets on our account Thc.canses.that we have
: had within the past year to be more or less diasat
' iefied with you, your pianos and your prices, and
which are well known to. you, entirely reconcile
us to the transfer. We have for sometime post
seriously considered tho question of'throwing ap
your agency," etc., etc.
Now, gentlemen. Incurs’of the. SOthnlt, after
giving onr reasons fb»-thetrans£ir.of our agency
from you to Mr. Nixon, we informed yon. that
this decision was final, and would not be changed
YOU KNOW, THEREFORE, TSAI UNDER NO CUT*
CCXSTANCES, COULD YOU 081 ANT MC3B STBoT
wat pianos, and consequently, you. wrote this
letter, (intesued to he advertised! In which you
accuse ns of various things, and state that oar
pianos hadwitbln a year deter!(sated in tone and
workmanship; also that vre knew yon were dis.
satisfied wlth'cur pianos.
We will now prove with your own words and
actions that It Ii» false, for during tho past summer
tho Chicago papers have been teeming with long
flaming advertisements, in which yon pronounced
our instruments tho belt in tho world. This yon
did of your own free will and accord, and as we
statedin onr last letter, we regretted it very much
at the time, but could not very well prevent It,
You Advertised our pianos to such an extent that
we thought it hut fair to reimburse you for it by
glxing you the last piano we sent you . You have
written us a great many letters, at the same time
urging us to send pianos, and as late as September
21st, 1868, wrote ns a letter from which we extract
the following: "Wz last week sent a man
wrni one or tour pianos to attend the lowa

The question, therefore, is simply reduced to
fl,la; YOUEITHER WZLPULLT BELIED THE PUBLIC
IN THESE ADVERTISEMENTS, CONTRARY TO TOUR

DO SO IK TOUR LETTER OP THE SfiXH ULT n AND

Any person with common eensq will see that
Jfra) Shcrrtisanntfa.
the latter Is the case, and that you now endeavor
to make the best of your position by writing na a
letter Intended for publication, In which you at
tempt to undo and take back what you have said
ai d done in favor of onr pianos heretofore, and
puff to our detriment the Instruments of three
makers which yon mean to sell hereafter.
You admit that for some time you endeavored
to sell to your customers pianos of other make
than ours. We knew that about a year ago yon
attempted to substitute for our pianos a make,
through the sale of which you thought you could
make larger profits, being a cheap article, bat as la
always the case with pianos, whose chief merit is
cheapness, they Called to take. Wa here admit
that wc would have deprived you of onr agency
then, had it not been for the fact of your being in
debted to ns for such a largo amount, that we
could not very well risk the transfer of Agency
then, but had to get onr money out of you first, as
best we could.
As regards your accusations that our pi
anos were dcfectivoln several instances, and that
we refused to make good our guaranty, so that you
had to pocket your losses, we defy fon to substan
tiate a single charge of the kind. April 25th, 1363
you informed ns that two-pianos bad arrived in a
damaged condition, they*having been injured on
the road by dampness. West once allowed you
the sum of S3O for repairing thorn, although we
were sot obliged to, the Railroad Company being
liable for damages.
Jane 27,1883, yon wrote to ns that a tuner had
found the piano of Mrs. C. 25. Hovey of Bloom
ingt on, Illinois, defective, that the soundboard had
cracked, etc. In onr reply to yon, dated July 1,
1883, we offered to forfeit the price of said piano,
if the soundboard was actually cracked, as we
knew It was not so. Yonr letter of July 20,15G3,
eays, that yon have shipped another piano to Mrs.
Hovey, and awaiting the coming back of the de
fective instrument from her. lix onr reply July
53,18C3, wc also offer to pay freight for tho said
piano both ways from N, Y. to Bloomington, 111.,
and back, u i/the soundboard is cracked." In your
letter of July 29,1863, you say “tho phmo from
Mrs. novey, has arrived, and we fail toflud any
radical defect in it, 1 * showing conclusively that we
were right and that the instrument was noi de
fective.
These arc to the beet of onr recollection the only
two instances you ever Informed ns of any defect
in a piano of our make, consequently your com
plaint, as to sot making good our guaranty, lacks
allfoundation and falls to the ground.
That, having lost our agency, youcooldnob be
expected to speak la favor of our instruments la
but natural, but that you could stoop to pursue
such a contemptible course as indicated In jour
letter of tho 2Cth u’.t., and which must sooner or
later recoil upon yourselves, is more than we
thought you capable of.
Under the circumstances we shall defer the ex
ecution of our intention to give you tho amount
of the last piano as an equivalent for your late ex
tensive advertising of our pianos, until joa justi
fy by your future behavior towards us such a vol
untary contribution on our part, and we shall
therefore not recall our draft.
You are of coarse welcome to publish your let
ter or anything, else in the Chicago papers, hut do
not forget that we shall in every instance pu&Us h
answers thereto and refute anytalso statements
which you may. make.
Yours, very respectfully,
