The newspapers as a rule, have poured out for years a torrent of abuse, against Butler of Massachusetts, but if i* be analyzed it will not contain any facts to warrant its use. Professional business has taken usiDto Mr. Butler vicinage fre quently within the past five years, and if popularity at home, is evidence of good character he has it—aod it rests upon his unfaltering championship of the poor. He was one of the few who bearded Stanton and his clique, by endeavoring to save Wm. Surrat from being judicially murder ed; he denounced the electoral commis sion fraud; and has performed yeoman ser vice as a member of the Potter committee. Our older Democrats must gratefully re member, his giant labors, in connection with Senator James A. B iyard, to nomi nate Breckemidge, and defeat Diuglass. It will not do to speak ol bis supported a mob as it is no' true. Mr. Tarbox of Lawrence one of them, is a lawyer of first rate standing at the Massachusetts bar, late member ol Congress for bis distric', a lifelong Democrat; he repiesented his town in the Lagislature, and is a man of most exalted personal character. Major McCatferty is perhaps as honest, and upright a man, as aay in the State, one also of courage culture, and ability. Mr. O'Byle Reilley is, or was Editor of the Boston Post, and is perhaps one of the most rising literary men, in the East; he is a gentleman of the most unspotted cfiarac as ter. W« speak of those we know, personally, and it is reasonably fair, to infer that tl e rest oj Mr. Butler's supporters are'equally fair, and good men. The State Central Committee attempted to usurp functions not given them; and they were beaten at their unlawful game, by the daring and tact of the Butler men. If the State Central Committee of this State, attempted to pass upon the qualification of the delegates to a State convention, what would we say? The Massachusetts committee tried to do when they found the people were ris ing against their domination. The truth is:—that of the Butler move ment in Massachusetts, were impartially written, and without passion, it would be found to be a moral rerolution of the people, against an oligarchy, which ruled, the Democracy, and divided its profits,and honor, to suit themselves. This was sew ing the whirlwind; and the storm is now being reaped. The Sun one of the most independent newspapers in the esuntry this the wonderful movement of 30 , says, Worcester is by no means a verdict on the r dative soundness of different men's De It is a reverberation of the mocracy. Maine earthquake. It is the voice of gee* eral discontent. It is a protest against the corruption and extravagance and fraud which have made taxes heavy and wages light. The day of fiction and of fustain and the men of presence and o/sham aw pawing away; the day of realities and of judgment at hand. No same man contemplates •' anything but peaceful measures, with the most acruyulous regard to the rights of property but thepeople are bent on reform, and the party of reform and economy and equal i'htswill prevail, whether by Democras cy or by any other name it maybe called. DID ttOT a WALLOW A CAM KL; The Gazette twite us with "swallowing the giving of the chief justiceship to. an op ponent of the Democratic party." This is mistake. We were open and outspoken, aa the files of the Adv«ktisib will show In jr advocacy of Judge Wootten for the office of chief justice, and have not changed our opinion from the matter, and never failed to expreae it when the subject was discussed. Let us have peace. The men who swallowed Greeley ought not to maka faces when Butler is gulped down. WASHINGTON LETTER. From our Special Correspondent.! Washington, D. C., Sept. 16,1878. What Macauley says of the causes which have strengthened and perpetuated one the great churches Is full of instruction to all who desire the success of any organi zation of men. He eloquently hells hpw those who, by tbe reason of their peculiari ties or weaknesses, would have been causes of dissension in any Other church;,' have by wise policy became the most zealous and able propagators'of the essential beliefs of this one. Perhaps the democrats of Mas sachusetts and not a few dtb^rStat profit by a careful 1 this time. Tbe all of ould ing of Macatney at port an t task 'before them, and before all lovers of Constitution al Government In this country, is to wrest from Radical control every place Of power the Congress, the State Governments, and the general government.. They should In sist on "unity" In this. They will hardly suffer from proclAImihg "charity" In all else. . This might even include amnesty to so great a sinner as Butler. Granted that he is a trading politician, an insincere, selfish politician, and that be and his followers held ldeae which, If they should control the future legislation of Congress, would be dangeroue. I don't believe be Is a whit more insincere than Blaine, Hayes or Sher man, and I don't believe any theory of fi nance or general legislation which he or his friends can invent, even If made to con trol the Government, could bring a surer or a deeper desolation than will the Radical parts If continued In power. Nothing could be woree than that. In the Republican party, recent events, Including the election in Maine, have pro duced great and general consternation. It Is said with an appearance of truth, that Hayes has undergone another ol those re markable changes of conviction on the flj n&ncial question, the first of which was made known a year or eo ago prior to an election then about to beheld. AH there Is here of the Republlcon party excepting Secretary Sherman, Is clalmlug that the party la tbe father of Greenbacks and their beet friend, and the Secretary's head Is not "level" on all financial questions. The National Republican loudly laments that the Radicals failed to proclaim in Malae their devotion to a currency Issued directly by the Government. Mr, Gorham, Secretary of the Republican Congressional Committee, of which the late Eugene Hals was chairman, regrets ig the Democrats dcanlze" the Gov, te all his time and that Instead of cha with attempting to " eminent, he did not d eloquence to proving that the Republicans were the original and only genuine Green backers. Up to yesterday tbe cash contributions ol Washington to the yellow fever sufferers had exceeded $20,000. The supplies of provisions had also been large. Hilton. LOCAL AFFAIRS.
