I'KIItAV. .j I'M' 6, it: IX HIS WAR PA I XT. We knew wc were right in 'ur suspicions: It was hi.i proxy, some hired counterfeit of Rutherford's who has been cuddling the Har vard. and weaving himself back int. the northeastern warp which gave the Whigs their complaining somnolency. In the Reno Journal, under date of Tuesday, July 3 (on the very brink of our natal day) and under the assumed name of Charles Dido, this most brazen of all possible frauds this base pur loiner of the poor but not nnrespectable specialties of Andy Johnson and Sergeant Bates puts forth the following : I have sent to the Chronicle to-day an offer to the sporting world of San Francisco to carry the Stars and Stripes on a 120 days' walk from San Francisco to New York City. If bets to the amount of 5,000 in my favor are made, of which I. am to receive $2,500. Anybody with half an eye can see that this is the real Hayes. That beggar who has just now been sunning himself under the River side trees is a tramp, merely. The real Whitehouser is waving the oriflammc of a sexless peace as he straddles across the ties of the overland railroad ! We do not hear of any proceedings upon the part of the ex ecutors of Johnson ; and Bates, being a mere sergeant, of course is quiescent. It is glory enough for him to have the Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy masquerading in this fashion. Also he knows that Boston is the only city in America out of which a man was dragged in chains back to a slavery which denied him motherhood and consigned his half-white danghters to debauchery and the auction block. So Bates keeps still; and as to Andy, they are illustrating that one Border State man has no rights that another Border State man is bound to respect. Also, we suppose Ins self respect shrinks from hav ing his name mixed up with His Vast Fn manlines. Now a word or two about "The (J rami Old Whig Party. " What did it ever do or pro fess? It professed to be for a Bank; and Jackson wouhl'nt have a Bank. Then it was for free trade; and then it wanted a Tariff. Now is there any human impulse under the notion of a Bank? Is there anything there to make the human heart feel more hopeful? What has any Bank ever done to make any home happy save the home of the Banker ? How much tender regard for any orphan is there in the conception of a Tariff ? England kicked her corn laws into the sea, and the tariff breeds custom-houses, only! No wonder South Carolina revolted! She revolted against her greedy sister, Massachusetts, where they bred Whigs who robbed the South of all but their slaves and who put Robert Rantoul in jail! And now a hippodroming President who 4ound the manhood of his party hand and foot and delivered them over to such whelps as Sam Bowles and Whitelaw Ried and Stanley Matthews, and that cow ardly malcontent, Schurz, goes on a mission to the gangrened and snobby conservatism of New England, prating of the past, renewing his allegiance to the "old line Whig party" and exhibiting his filthy treachery in the face of day! In the first place the fellow is not in any sense a gentleman. Had he been he never would have written his indecent letter of acceptance bidding for the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites. In the next place he is a short-stock Virginian. And that's what's the matter! These borderers are all false to both sections. Look at Kentucky's "armed neutrality" in 18G1. Look at that old wretch, Brownlow: One year writing a pamphlet to prove that slavery was dead and the next year, with a blasphemous tongue which should have been torn from his vile old mouth, blathering about the virtues of the Whig Party. Then he was a Union man because his Democratic neighbors were on the other side. And so with that malig nant plebian, Andy Johnson. The moment he got into power he showed his hand. With a blind sort of philosophy he somehow knew that there were sections and so he went with his own cuffed and snubbed as ho had been by the patricians there. And now Hayes "a poor white" as Phillips said he is cuddling with the shin bones of the buried mummies of New England snobbery and breathing the breath of death into the whitened notrils of decomposed Whiggery. They'd better watch him or he will flag a train to its destruction! A man who has robbed a party is liable to rob a mail bag. His assumed name is Dido and everybody knows what she did. Says the single-handed prevaricator of the Reveille: A woman went into a Main street store tin's morning and purchased a pick-handle. No questions were asked her, the polite clerk not even intimating a desire to know if she were going propecting; hut she volunteered the in formation that she intended to make her hus hand and that carrotv-headed old cat under stand that she was not dead yet, even if she uici nave a consumptive cough, a weeping eye, false teeth, a big bunion, and symptoms of the hip complaint. There is one man in this town who will hear the toccin of war sound pretty soon. The Virginia City Footlight has a war map which is as funny as its notion that the Morn ing Appeal is not a poet. Its typography is as abaured as its idea of the residence of the divine afflatus. We venture the assertion that the Fourth of July this year was more extensively celebrated than any of its predeces sors. The South, rejoicing in its regained freedom was in the humor to glorify ; and the Centennial awakened and renewed rather than exhausted the popular liking for its celebration. The memories of the day accumulate ; and now fifty millions rejoice over the work of three, while trovn ocean to ocean are reechoed the peans of liberty. In a hundred years a people have come together more numerous than the inhabitants of France; and moving on and on, seizing and possessing, they have come to occupy a Con tinent. Last year a freshman at the English University of Cambridge wrote a splendid poem on our Centennial Fourth. Following are the lines : Not ours the glories of the empires old, Of those old kingdoms, rich in legend fame Which ages mellow, as when moonbeams fall And glance round hoary keep, while battlement And stern gray tower are soft with silvery light. No old nobility to link these days To the dim past we claim, yet can we boast Hearts noble with a wealth of nature's dower, Rich in the manly grace of gentleness ; We boast no sacred minsters, old and gray, All clustered round by sacred memories Of saints of bygone days, as ivy leaves And mosses cling about the aging elm, Richer and fairer with the passing year. Rut prayer and praise as deep and true ascend From city and from solitude to heaven, From throng of worshippers, or where but one Sail solitary soul looks up to Ood, Deep in the forest neath the tall pine's shade, Or rocked upon the wave of some gray stream Fur from the sorrows and the joys of men. Let us hope that when the two hundredth anniversary shall have come it may find a people not less happy than these in the love and enjoyment of the liberties which the Fourth symbolizes and commemorates. ROBERT DALE OWEN'S DEATH. Robert Dale Owen died at his summer cot tage, at Peerless Point, Lake George, on Sun day last. He was the eldest son of an English social reformer, and was born in Glasgow in 18U1. His early years were spent in New Lanark. After three years at school in Switz erland, he accompanied his father to America in 18'2'A. He lived at New Harmony, Ind. , where his father was conducting a cuminunist society on the banks of the Wabash river. In 1828 Mr. Owen and Miss Frances Wright began the publication, in New York, of the Free Enquirer, which existed three years. Mr. Owen was afterward elected to the Indi ana Legislature for three terms, and, from 1840 to 1847. was a member of Congress, and known as a Democrat. He introduced the bill organizing the Smithsonian Institution, and was made a regent and chairman of its build ins committee. He was a member of the Constitutional Convention in 1850, and was the author of measures securing to the women of Indiana independent rights in property. He was United States Minister to Naples from 18.")5 to 185S. Mr. Owen was alw.-vys busy with his pen. In 1SP.0 he has a discussion on divorce with Horace Greeley, which, being published in pamphlet form, gained a circulation of 00, 000 copies. He was an industrious writer on slavery and political subjects during the war I of the rebellion. Fur most of his life he was conspicuous as a believer in Spiritual ism, and his most famous works are "Footfalls on the Houndary of Another World," and "The Debatable j Land," both treating of the phenomena and t evidences of Spiritualism. One work, inter- I esting at the time (1840'), was "Hints on Public Architecture." Besides works on metaphysical and practical subjects, Mr. Owen published "Pocahontas," a historical drama, in 18;?7, and "P.eyond the Breakers," a novel, in 1870. His last effort was in 1874, being twenty-seven years of autobiography under the title, "Threading My Way." For the last three 3-ears of his life Mr. Owen was in a weak condition, physically and mentally. At the exposure of Katie King, a medium on whom he had pinned his spiritual faith, his mind gave way. He was kept in an insane asylum in New Harmony for a short time, and, on recovering his reason, he married and lived on his wiles estate at Lake George until his death. His young wife was his constant nurse. N. Y Sun. HOW THEY LIKE HIM VAN I A. IX PEXNSY Li- Says a correspondent of ;;n Eastern ex change writing from Philadelphia under date of J tine 25 : Leading Republicans here do not conceal their contempt at the order of Hayes divorc ing officeholders from party politics. Among the most outspoken is W. 11. Kemble, the famous addition, division and silence man, who is one of the Pennsylvania Pin? masters. He savs the order is palpably insincere, and gives this revelation of the inside workings of nis party: oine time ago Air. bcliurz wrote out a tine speech which he agreed to deliver three times a week for S500 a week for us. and we took it in Pennsylvania to the extent of 1,500. We raised the money nartlv bv assessments on officials, and partly by con tributions from Republicans of means, but Mr. Schurz did'nt ston to inouire who naid the money. Hayes had everything at stake in carrying Ohio in October of last year. Had he lost that State there would have been a Tilden whirlwind in November that would have swept not only Ohio, but Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Nevada, Oregon and California, and Ohio was saved by President Hayes and his friends appealing to us for money to put into the contest. Secretary Sherman and Gov. Dennisen wrote the most importunate letters to us for money. The State that gives us a civil service President, a Cabinet officer, and a number of other officials practised civil service so far as not to pay their own money to the campaign, but they called upon Pennsylvania to do it for them, and Secretary Sherman then appealed to the men whom he knew had profited by the Government, re ceived money from them, and has since re warded the parties by profitable contracts. As to the President, his case is worse. We made assessments here in Philadelphia on officeholders, every dollar of which was sent to Ohio, in addition to other large amounts sent there, and some of which was sent di rectly to Gov. Hayes himself. It would not be uncharitable to say that the President used the money for political purposes, as any other use of it would be a breach of trust that would warrant the Pennsylvania pol iticians in calling upon him to render an ac count. In 1875, when President Hayes was dragged through Ohio by the ears, the same appeal was made upon us, the same measures employed to raise money to save him, and a liberal contributiori was made from this city just on the eve of the election that had much to do with his narrow escape from defeat.
