London, October 20. Tho Tines has an editorial on tho. rumored withdrawal of tho Democratic candidates for the Presidency. It says the Democrats will doubtless think jt best to fight .the battle to the end and lose; if it must be, with Governor Seymour at their head, than at so lato an hour take Chase as leader, al though power will be brought into tho bands of the Radicals. General Grant is likely to act with more discrimination than the rest of the party. He has ovinccd a kindly feeling for tho Southern people, and if the Radical policy is to be pressed, it could not be executed under moro favorable conditions than with Grant as head executive.

The battery on tbe Paraguayan river has been dismounted, the cannon having been thrown into the river. Lopez is said to have gone to Sierro Leon, a strongly fortiGed place below Ascension, destroying the railroad. The allies were en route from Tebequirary for Velela, gunboats accompanying them on the river. Lopez is said to liaye about 20.000 men, and being in the interior, the allies' opera tions will be at a disadvantage, they having lost some nine hundred men in transport ing supplies to Tebequirary. The Brazilian squadron has gone to Ascension and two Monitors has gone to Matlo Urasso, the latter place being abandoned by the Paraguayans. Tho American gunboat Wasp has gone to Ascension. A loan of thirty million dollars has been opened by the Brazilian government.

NEW YORK. Tbo World Wauls General Blair to Besljru Riot lu Brooklyn- Tbe Prlzo FlL'bt, etc. New York, Oct. 20. The World editorially says the vies of Governor.Sey mour, and not those attributed to General Blair, should be regarded as the basis of the campaign. General Blair has already expressed his willingness to withdraw if the good people of the. party requires it. We think rejection will convince him that ticket would be stronger if some other name were substituted for his. Three police officers arrested one John Mattuson on Atlantic street, Brooklyn, for disorderly .conduct, and while conveying him to tbe station were assaulted by a mob of some two hundred men and women with bricks, stones and other missiles. Two of the officers were severely injured, but held on to their prisoner. An accidental discharge of one of their revolvers caused tbe crowd to scatter, leaving Daniel Con Ian, said to be one of the raiders, in the hands of the police. John Callarey, policeman, was fined $100 yesterday for striking a woman with his club while taking her to the station house, causing serious damage to her. The stake-holder between O'Baldwiq and Wormaldfthe pugilists, declined yesterday to nav over the stake to either party, and stated he would fix the time and place for the fight within ten days, ouside of the State.

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. The Chase Movement A Circular front Southerners on tbo .Subject The Whisky law-Pardon of (Jen. lre - ton. Special to the Louisville. Courier. Washington, 1). C. Oct l'J. The changes of front movement, contrary to public expectation, so far from being abandoned, to-day seems to have greater force. What at first was tho expression of a singlo journal has found a response from a large part of tho Democratic Pajty- . .Montgomery titair uses tnem to treat the idea as absurd, and evon gave his opinion, iu terms more emphatic than re fined. While denouncing the movement, he does not regard it as improbable, and if our friends now in consultation in .New York decide to mako a chango ho would give the new ticket nis nearly support. And such is the position of Gen. Blair. Ho has written a letter to the Executive Committee, in which ho says whatever may bo its action will meat his approval Gen. Rcsecrans, also, who has boon rep. resented as opposing a change, is in favor of it Ho left for ew York to-night to give his aid in that respect i numDer oi uisunguisiieu oouuiurn era likewise have added the weight of their names, and in a circular just issued propose the names of Chase and General Franklin, and urging Seymour and ISlai to withdraw. They say for our leaders to stand in the wav of this would bo cruel to the South and a great crime against tho welfare of this nation, which political wire-pullers might forgive, but which tho peoplo would in the nature of things terribly punish. With their candidates and this platform they would feel warranted in appealing to the magnanimity of tho peoplo north and west, and especially to the Union sol diers of tho country, and imploring them to take tho heel of power from the neck of a crushed, impoverished and prostrate people, and givo that peaco so necessary to the South so essential to tho future welfare of the whole nation, and so cer tain to insuro the lasting gratitude of j tho9e who ask that Tolief. Having such convictions, they appeal to tlieir friends at the north and west lor prompt and decisivo action. tVnother point urged by the friends of the movement is that Lhaso s namo will aid in securing the election of a number of Congressmen sufficient to prevent the Radicals carrying through their high handed measures. A lew hours time will definitely settle matter. Tho President lias granted a pardon to Major General William Preston, of Kom tucky, formerly of the Confederate armyj General Preston came under tho third exception of the amnesty proclamation. The pardon is recommended by ex- Attornev Gen. Snecd. Montgomery Blair and others, and will be issued to morrow. The fourth section of the whisky law which has been working so oppressively to distillers through tho improper con struction placed on it by an underling of theRevenueDepartment, who apparently has been in the interest of certain specuo lators, will undoubtedly bo modified by tbo Commissioner. That decision con strues doubling -as redistillation, or rec tification, or both, which this subordinate officer says is prohibited. Goneral Schenck, who mainly framed the law, had ah interviow with Commis sioner Rollins to-day on tho subject. He showed conclusively that while the tax was attached to the distilled spirits from its first distillation, nothing prohibited the manufacturer from doubling or re distilling, so as to perfect his liquor, the amount of tax being determined by the character and proof of tho whisky when it outers tho receiving cistern. The Com missioner intimated that he would take this view of tho law, which will allow distilleries to make copper whisky. NAlsflVILLE, " TENNESSEE, BEWlY, OCTOBER 21, 1868.

Sir: I most respect fully decline to cive up mv office of l.'hief of Police of the city of Jefferson, or turn over my force to any preteded authority, which 1 hold by a unanimous election of the Council of the city of Jefferson. il you really believe you are trulv and justly entitled to the above office, you may appeal ior renei lo the proper tribunal in the course of law. Very respectfully, M. Lkthidque. Chief of Police of the City of Jeflerson. City oe Jefferson. Oct. 14. 18G8. To the Honorable the President and Members of the Board of Metropolitan Police: Gentlemen The undersigned, Mayor and a majority of the Board of Aldermen of she city of Jefferson, respectfully protest against the putting in operation of the Metropolitan folice bill' in this city, as they believo the act to be unconstitutional. and that the threatened manner of en forcing it in the city of Jeflerson is not warranted by the act itself. They are Willing to Bnbmit to any order eminating in a proper manner from proper judicial authority. They are very desirous of. avoiding a collision with any officials act ing under your authority, and woulu therefore, respectfully suggest that you take measures to lest the validity of the act, and procure the necessary process from the courts ot the country belore you en deavor to put the act in operation by foice. We have the honor to remain your obe dient servants, Ibigned by the Mayor and a raaionty of the Board of Aldermen. The Times adds : Subsequently the Mayor and several of the Aldermen held a meeting, and a pro test was prepared and sent to the Board of Police Commissioners. They sustained the action of .the Chief of Police in not giving up mi omce, and deprecated tbe conduct of the Metropolitan force in at tempting to obtain by violence what was wholly within the jurisdiction of the courts. When we left Jefferson last evening the corners in the immediate vicinity of the Chiefs office were thronged with men, and all the streets for some little distance were picketed in anticipation of another demon stration. Should it come during the night, the responsibility must rest where it prop erly belongs. Neither J. J. Williamson, nor J. J. any-body-else. has a right to at tempt a decision with brute force that can easily be settled by a 9110 warranto. The chances are if he does, 'twill be bitterly re gretted during tha remainder of J. J. Wil liamson a existence. 8 o'clock y. m. The colored population still remain ..in groupea on the corners of the Btreets. The different churches are thronged with negroes. The citizens re main calm they do not desire a disturb ance, but if it is forced upon them they will meet it with proper resolution. Too much praise cannot be given to Mr. M. lielhicque for the manner in which he has acieu; nis ueierraination and urmness nas prevented a bloody anair in Jeflerson City. The Picayune of tho 17th lias the folow- mg: Ex-Mavor Woodruff, theiecentappoinUe of the Metropolitan Board as Chief of Police for Jeflerson City, made another de mand for the office this morning, this time being backed by a Btrong force of armed policemen, with an armed negro reserve. The present Chief calmly bnt firmly re fused to vacate, and referred Woodruff to the courts for redress. The presence of an armed body of men, and the purpose of their coming, very naturally created in tense alarm and excitement among the fiopnlation of Jefferson, who assembled in arge numbers in the vicinity of the court house. Gen. Rousseau has been informed of the existing difficulties, and doubtless will prevent a conflict " With regard to Woodrun, we would state-that he is personally obnoxious lo the citizens of Jeflerson, and his appoint ment by;tbe Metropolitan Hoard ot folic e is deemed an insult. No citizen ol Jeffer son would consider his life or his property safe if this man, who has no pretensions to decency, much less honesty, were permit ted to exercise the rights of Chief of Po lice in theirtown. His appointment should at once be revoked.

The state elections just held demon strate clearly that a majority ot tne peo plo of the North are disgusted with and opposed to tho revolutionary measures which have been made distinctive features of tho policy of tho Republican party. It is also manifest that this majority has not yet beon entirely and practically consoli dated against the Radical candidates for the Presidency and Yicq Presidency. If such a consolidation can bo effected before the 3d of November, the doom of Radical ism will be scaled, the wholo country will bo relieved from the serious apprehen sions as to tho future by which it is now oppressed, the people everywhero will breathe more freely, and, confident of a speedy restoration of peace, Union, con stitutional gpvernraent, and public econo my, will address themselves heartily to a restoration of the prosperity which, until the deplorable outrages of tho Radi cal party in Congress, had blessed our whole nation. Tho spectacle iust now presented is anomalous. A, majority of the people are unquestionably opposed honestly to tho Radical party, and anxious to check its ruinous domination in our public affairs. A portion of that majority are deterred from active, hearty, and successful co operation with the rest, only because of the misrepresentations of tho doctrines and purposes of the Democratic leaders, persistently dinned into their cars by unscrupulous Radical presses and speak ers. They utter the falsehoods, but they never allow their readers or hearors to sco or hoar the oft-repcatcd corrections. Something moro than ordinary means must bo devised to reach tho minds of tho Conservative men still lingering ro luctantly in tho Republican ranks, and following, with heavy hearts and anxious (ears, the men who havo usurped their leadership. They must bo disabused of the belief instilled into them, that tho Democratic party intends or proposes to resort to any violent or revolutionary means to remedy existing evils, or to go one stop beyond the Constitution and the laws, in seeking to restoro the integrity and peaco of our dissoveied and distracted Union. They must be made to under stand and confidently believe that the party that is now organized in opposi tion to tho Radical factionists and their candidates is sincerely seeking only the restoration of real peace, constitutional government, a perfect government, a perfect Union, and that public economy which is indispensable to tho maintenance of the public credit and tho aversion of universal ruin. This conviction in the public mind of what is absolutely true is alono needed to insure the overwhelming defeat of revo lutionary Radicalism in the coming Pres idential election. We know that tho De mocratic party in this contest is earnestly and sincerely animated only by tho purest patriotic motives ; that its solo purpose is toroscuo the Govcrnmont from revolu tion, tho country from absolfito ruin, and tho peoplo from a tyranny more grinding and degrading than the African slavery that has recontly beon abolished. Wo know that it seeks honestly only a re storation of the Union, tho Constitution, and national prospotity. We believe that its leaders aro ablo to rise to tho full measure of tho greatness of the occa sion, and to do whatever may bo necos sary to effect all that remains 16 bo dono to attract the confidenco of the poople, and insuro tho success of tho Consorva- five majority in tho election now near at hand. QXIEEJT ISABELLA IX EXILE. Tho dethroned Queen of Spain was still at St. Sebastian at last accounts. The Bordoaux Gironde gives the follow" iug particulars of her sojourn there : " Secluded, almost in solitude, in hoc palace, through whoso saloons streams of courtiors and guests so lately passed, the Queen is reported to give vent to bit ter sarcasms in speaking of her lonely and deserted condition. Her intendant and lover, Marfol, who to everybody's indignation is seen atrutting-nbout the streets, appears to be her Majesty's only confidant Now that her reasons for postponing her departue, and resisting the wise advice of tho few faithful, friends remaining to her, are known, tha Queen, as a woman and mother, is re garded with supreme indifference. Tho inspector of the North of Spain railway is eontinually in attendance, awaiting her Majesty's pleasure to givo a fourth order of departure, the royal carriages still remaining in tho station." Mexico is represented by the friends of Juarez to bo in a mighty prosperous condition, but how would they make that appear when disaffected and revolution!, ary organizations exist in the Tople dis trict, iamaulipas, Guanajuato, Tlaxcala, revolutionists, Jallacp, and other States ? Apart from this, Mexico is overrun by rolt herd and murderers who outnumber hon est people. A few days ago, in Claiborne parish' Louisiana, two lads, sons respectively ef Frederick A. Jones anij Win.

Norlnl Customs Intemperance Among the I'cfuvlan Sen-jnu. Correspondence of the New York TimcX Lima, Peru, Sept. 23, 1863. The great sensation of the month has been the feast day of Santa Merced (just passed last Fri day). The name of Mercedes is a favorite one with the Peruvian Senoras, and nearly every umlly lias among its little girls one named after the favorite Saint. It has, therefore, become a universal custom for each family who have some member of it reioicing in that name to give a large or small party, according to their means and style of living. This is often done by several families uniting in one house, and dividing the expense, .these parties are all given on the feast-day of Santa Merced. Among the lower classes, where are to be found plenty of fat n egresses and Cholos and Zimbas named Mercedes, the party invariably begins with a drink of Chicha or Pisco (native brandy), and it is usual to bnd tbe entire company entirely oblivious of external things, and one and all of them beastly intoxicated by midnight. Every glass of liquor is drank to the health of Mercedes, and if she is the hostess, or invited guest, or indeed every female of that name, must not refuse to drink when ever her name, is mentioned. A very na tural consequence is that the lady mem bers 01 the party early in tbe evening totter into an adjoining room, (if there is one,) and lying down upon sofa or floor, fall asleep very speedily. This custom does not always confine itself to the lower classes on Saint Merced's Day. I am sorry to say, although the lamenian ladies are not given to liquors, and are, as a class, very temperate, yet the absurd custom of making it an insult to refuse to drink on Saint Merced, if your name is Mercedes, and in compliment lo the hostess, if she has that appellation, renders it almost a necessity to drink more than a lady wishes. Children are exempt from this foolish practice, however, and early in the evening the little Mercedes aro dismissed to bed after having stood up, made a pretty little speech, being presented with a bou quet of flowers, and kissed by every member of the company. I had the good fortune to be invited to one of these Saint Merced feast-day parties -where, several families having united, there were present eleven ladies and young ladies by the name of - Mercedes, Senora .Mercedes.j meaning Our Lady of all "Mercies.' I was greally amused at watching, not only these ladies, but all thefemales present, who endeavored to prevent the ill effects of the liquor being apparent by merely sipping a taste at every toast and compliment. But even the, officious gentlemen guests would not spare them this luxury, for the glare was in stantly filled with aquardiente, (brandy,) or Italia, (the wine of the native Italia grape, and very much like champagne,) as soon as one little sip had reduced its contents, until the dark eyes grew more brilliant and the clear cheeks glowed deeply, and, in' some instances, t he languid head sunk back against, the sofa.- or chair, and the .heavy, oh, how heavy, eyelids closed. Then 1 83W an old duenna, or Pemvian maiden aunt or grandmother, gently lead the sleepy damsels from tbe room, to refurn in an hour or so, bright and wakeful, and t6 enter with renewed zest into tbe closing dances. Similar scenes occur in every family counting a Mercedes among its female' members, on Friday, the patron feast-day of Santa Merced Tns announcement that' "Hon, Peleg B. Pilkins, who has for twenty years oc cupied a position in one of our leading institutions, has ccrae out for Grant and Colfax," created intenso Radical joy in Indiana, until it transpired that tbe PenV itontiary was the "institution" in which Pilkins had held a position for so long, and from which ha had just "como out' The average cost of 'living,at"fhefWork ing-women's Home in New York, of which mere are at present some eigui nunureu and thirty inmates, is said to be three dol lars and thirty cents, per week, ' including a hoard, lodging and washing. - .

These were Captain Crozier and a steward of one of the lost vessels, who died near Southamntnir Island while endeavoring to "make their way to that place, in the belief that the would there -find a whaling vessel which would carry them home. Dr. Hall is con fident of the identity of Captain Crozier, with one of his men so described to have perished, and has in his possession several articles that belonged to him.

STUMP ORATORY. llow It U cot up-Tom Corwln anil Judge Chase. This mode, of political instruction U of late date, naving grown up in the South weei wuuui me last nan ceninrr. it m now spread over the entire conntrr. ami f- I fords one of the liveliest features of a can- vass A native born American thinks aloud the moment he finds his legs and can stand alone. More's the pity. We run to talk, and being without inspiration and without study, the talk is neither pleadant nor pro- e 1 mi , . . iounu. ine larger amount 01 stump ora tory is made' up of newspaper articles, and there is a fearful sameness in them. Since the general introduction of short hand re porting, we have columns upon columns from the stump that hat already appeared in the journals. The editors, therefore, in spire tbe orators, but it is a poor sort of in spiration at best. The American world lacks lime for thought. More's the pity. The prince of stum tiers was the late Tom Corwin. Never profound, he was vjwaTS original and persuasive. No man, probably, ever lived who had such a sym pathetic control of his audience. A superb actor, Iie never seemed to be acting, and carried his crowd from laughter to tears, or from tears to langhter, with an ease really wonderful. His pathos was genuine and his humor real humor. It was good humor ; there was not a particle of malice in it His opponents laughed, and the vic tim mmseii, when iieid up 10 ridicule, was forced to enjoy the fun. Poor Corwin! He lived to learn that the man who amuses is the man to be sadly underrated. "Quit that," he said to a youngfriendonce; "you mustnotmake them laugh. If you want to succeed, you must be as solemn as an ass. The world con founds the satirists of genius with the clown, and looks down on both alike. Be solemn solemn as an aa and you'll be respected living, and mourned when dead. All the great monuments are erected to solemn assee." It was a sad commentary on his own life. Corwin, as we have said, had no bitterness in his nature. The nearest approach to ugly sarcasm we ever new was in his retort to Salmon P. Chase. The contest for Gov ernor in this State, between Chase and Medill was exceedingly close, and the Southern counties went largely for Medill. Mr. Chase, jumping to the conclusion that his opponent was elected, broke out in great bitterness on the old Whigs for di Berting him. Mr. E. P. Norton, always about when eminent men appeared, was exceedingly shocked at this irreverent treatment of old Whigs, and so expressed himself to Mr. Corwin' 1 "Ob, never mind that, Norton," said the groat humorist "Chase was drunk. He, came round all right so soon as we got his bottle from him." Poor Norton, who never had a joke in him, and could not get one in, save through' a surgical operation, took this as a fact, and' so reported. In time it came to Governor' Chase's ears, and talking with Corwin, he' said, laughingly : "I didn't mind your telling poor Norlont of my inebriated condition, but you did make a remark, about that time, that in choosing bstween me and Medill, you ha to select between a skunk and a rattle-, snake." "Ah 1 Chase," responded Corwin, with that humorous twinkle of his eye, "the1 first, (o Norton, was the best excuse I could make for you and the second was the best I could make for myself." But we are getting away from the stump. The first preparation the young beginner makes is to secure a scrap book, and paste in it certain articles from the press. These' are the documents that are read, from time to time, with great emphasis, no invari ably begins his speech by avowing that the, election then coming on is one of vital im portance. Tn bis estimation it is the most important election ever held. Then he, eulogizes the ballot and the intelligence1 and ' virtue, of the American people. He 'seeks to convey the impression that the! American people is the .greatest, best and! bravest peoplejn the world, and the ballot is the sheet anchor. This introduces the Ship of State. No Btump speech is perfect witheut the Ship of State, and that states-) man who at the right, moment takes the! rudder. , The winds blow, the waves .roll, and tho breakers are ahead ! Then at the right moment the great man appears. One accustomed to this sort of thing can' make affidavit that ho' 'can tell in a'dvanctj tbe line of argument; the illustration?; quotations and anecdotes. How audiences manage to stind this sort of thing, again and again, bothers the understanding, ''1 fAnetnnah Junqutrer. Simi'UME PAHTIE-S. What are now called surprise parlies becomo quite fashionable in England about the year 1800, when they wer called "pic-nic suppers." The bill of far was. prepared, each dish being'numbered, and tho subscribers to the entertainment drew lots, and each required to furnish tho dish marked against the number he drew. This may be useful as a hint t$ persons getting upsurpriseparties.'whick by tha way, are tho most sensible species of entertainment now in Togue, because the entertainer is' required to furnish onlf tho parlors, and is put to no trouble to prepare for tho guests, while the visitors mrnisn meir own sapper ana musio, anu thus equalize expenses. 1 n that way' the peoplo who livo in a pleasant house, but who cannot afford1 to prepare an enter tainment entirely at' their own cosf, may atill receive their friends occasionally and enjoy a social and festal evening.

"At various times during the past fif teen years a strange monster, believed to be a huge serpent,has been reported seen in Lake Utopia, in New Brunswick, just across the State line, but as theso rea ports in each instance rested upon tho testimony of but one or two individuals, they wore generally discredited. Latterly, noweyer, tne reports ana tne number ot witnesses had so increased as to take the story out of the realm of fiction. On Sunday, August 3, tho monster' was dis covered near the shore on tho west aila of Eastport Island, where PassaraaqHodJy Bay is connected with Lake Utopia by a marsh a quarter of a mile loni Beiug attacked by musketry, it struck for the marsh, and probably for the lake, which was undoubtedly its horao, and, before being rendered incapable of locomotion, it had worked its way with its fins and legs a' number of rods. The report of its presence at onco spread to tho town, at tracting a large number to the spot to aid in its destruction. It received socio sev enty musket-balls, and although attacked in the- forenoon, exhibited signs of lifts the following day. "Thus tho Northeastern point uf our State, with tho assistance of New Bruns wick, has the honor of prolacinir tbe -nearest approach to a veritable sen ser pent, which, is destined to make a popular sensation-wherevcr exhibited, it is to be at Portland during the forthcominr State Fair, and is thenco bound for Boston, New York and other principal cities. A SCAFFOLD 8CE.VE. A terrible scaffold scene recently took place at Tambow, in Russia. Young Goraki, a' pupil of the high school of that place, and eighteen years of age, waa t bo executed for having murdered a fam ily of seven persons. The young crimi nal was convoyed io the place of execu tion on a wagon which was escorted by a company oC dragoons. The gallows was surrounded by a crowd of ten thousand persons. Atter tho doomed lad bad alighted lrom the wagon, tho sentence ot death was read to him. He was deadly pale' and fainted before the warrant was read through.
