Selected Miscellany. THE OLD KEEPER'S STORY. IT was a quaint room in which I fat, with the firelight, flashing into each cor ner, and the Muffed birds, foxes and pole cats looking life-like in the leaping blaze. A quaint cottage room, but the essence of comfort As I pulled at the stiff glass of water and whisky and puffed my meer schaum, I felt excessively comfortable. I was in no hurry to get my wet water boots dried, which lay steaming on the ample hearth. ' My temporary host sat opposite; a fine, athletic old man, with snow-white hair and whiskers. The cut of his coat and the wary look on his weather-beaten, honest face sufficiently told the ex-gamekeeper, had not the retriever pnp at his feet and the gun behind him added evi dence.' A fine specimen of his class, he waa well-knit even at eighty years of age, with a frank, cheery look in his eye that told of straight forward truth and worth, i, I had been snipe shooting on some marshes I rented of the lady of the manor, and . having got soaked in a deep rivulet from a fall, had sought shelter in the keeper's cottage. To be a sportsman was, to be sure, a pa3sport to his favor, added to which his grandson, Tom, was my in variable attendant and bag carrier. The old man I had seen but once, when on my renting the shooting from Lady Linwood, he, as her head keeper, had shown me the boundaries. The great hall was closed, for Lady Linwood, a childless widow, lived permanently at Nice, and her fair estates were all let. She was the1 widow of a poor Lieutenant Colonel,, knighted for gallant service, and had succeeded to the property in lacs of direct heirs. . Seamen, my host, was something more than head keeper. Evidently he had been one of those ancient trusted servants to whom the honor and welfare of a family are dear as to its own members. . And by the sad look on his fnce whenever he spoke of the squires of Linwood I fancied 'some portion of the family history was mournful and unhappy. " Do you see much of Lady Linwood ?" I asked. . . . ' "Never, sir. She1 always is' abroad. And there's never beon a Linwood here since the last squire died." , " I hat was long ago ? " Yes, sir, long ago. Five and forty years agono, sir," said he, musingly, his eyes fixed on the fire. " Five and forty years agono and like yesterday." I was interested. The keeper's manner, action and expression were all unlike his class, and J. felt a curiosity, as we all do when something tells us of a hidden his--tory. , ." I suppose the last squire had a good stock of game?" said I. .."Yes, sir. Hundreds of pheasants he turned out I was a younster then un derkecper and I used to fetch all the sacks of barley to feed cm." ' ,.j " And was he much of a sportsman f " . " Yes, sir. "With the gun, rod and horse he was unequaled all the country round. He was a tall, fine man, with coal-black hair and whiskers, pleasant and kind to the tenants, but with a fearful temper,- if anything should go wrong. He'd rave, and swear; and smash all around him in the room when he was in one of his storms. The only person who managed him was Miss. Dora." Here the keeper became silent, and a look of deep sadness came over his rugged face. " You'll have to stay a longish time, sir, for your things aro soaked. 1 So, if you like to hear it, I'll tell you the story. I sup pose I'm lik old ' men, sir, and like to maunder," he added, with a smile of natu ral . dignity and courtesy, which might have befitted a prince. "Mr. George Linwood,. five and forty years ago, was the squire. He lived with his - mother, a gentle lady.' She was al ways on i her sofa, and never well, but kind as an angel to the poor. Miss Dora Maitlarid.'her niece, came to stay up at the Hall with them. Her parents were very poor, and she'd six sisters; so they. were glad-Miss1 Dora's parents, I mean when Mrs. Linwnsid'saki she'd adont her as a daughter. I heard this, you know, from the lady's maid at the Hall, who was af terward mv wife. She died vears ago. And the old "maa -sighed, and glanced at an empty cnair near his own. " Well sir.'! he resumed : " Miss Dora came, and Mrs. Linwood was very fond of her. ho was everybody, lor she was so sweet and gentle, and her voice waa likei-ar.blaokblrd's.'. Everybody about the estate knew Miss . Dora, and she used to go about in her' broad at and carol her. srmg, for all the world like a a blackbird in the holly. The cottagers uecdi to know her, Tor whenever any one was ill there Miss Dora was, petting and rnftfletinir them. " So, sir,". 4resurh)d the old man after a pause, ,1' by-and-by Mr. George became fond of Miss Dora. He used to follow her about and watch all her wishes. He broke in a chestnut filly himself, and used to ride with her. But she seemed shy to him. His temper was so shifty, and she heard his curses, once when ho was bitterly angry, though he didn't know she was in hearing s and she seemed to shrink from him. She was such a beauty golden . hair, and eyes, sir, just like tho sky on a clear day, such a deep, clear blue, while her complexion the village girls used to call roses and lillies. I've heard it said that a great portrait painter came down to paint her toce, and showed it in London as the greatest beauty he had seen any where, s " Mrs. Linwood, sir, the servants could all see was very anxious about air. ueorge, She'd murmuro herself for hour about him. and he was alwavs looking at turn and Bora so wistful like, as if sue didn't dare to say what was on her tongue. Bo things went on, till one day a company of soldier marched into the village. The ortjeer in command was invited by Mr. Linwood: to dine, and he did so, but he did'nt sea Mrs. Linwood nor Miss Dora, for they were both in with colds, and they stayed up stairs. The ofticer was a hand some young man, with keen gray eyes and a quiet saauicr, and a look or real honesty about him, sir. Mr. Linwood asked him to come when he could get leave and shoot. , , ..... V Well, by and by he came Captain Calton was his name, and he wore the Waterloo medal, for he'd been in tho heat of that ; and he came la late one night after dressing, into the drawing room. There were 'Mrs. Linwood and Mlsa Dora. The Squire introduced him ; when sudden ly thq captain grew very agitated and Miss Dora gave a littleahiieki aid then looked so charming that half nr eye might see, Polly, my wife said, where her heart was. " The 'Squire didn't see this, and fortu nately too, for only the day before he'd asked Mi4,,I)irU tOTiarry him, and she, crying bitterly, had refused. ThaiJSliife went off wild duek shoot ing with me, but he laid his gun down the punt, and kept staring sternly In the air, and muttericg to himself. i ou may guess, sir, that I held my tongue,, . "Well! .eVJatJiSnnet thUg noactt was said, for Caotain Calton seemed very a lent, and, q Miss Dora. ' The 'Squire drank a tool deal, and Ukod about the ' snootier, Im Bf sen Uaro flocked' at couniii wMh nu-ti i' wild, taper look that wad aiw-blush like a rose whoever caught her eve., " After dinner, when Polly was putting Win 1 1?' . .... . ii , .

PEttttYSBURG, WOOD CO., OHIO, FRIDAY, OCTOBER D,18G8. 2.00 IN ADVANCE. in , tig he some embroidery away In the cabinet at the end of the drawing room, she htard Miss Dora tell Mrs. Linwood enough to find out that Captain Calton was her old lover whom she'd met at Bath with her parents, and that they were to bo married when he got rich enough. Polly could not help hearing it, sir ; all women are curious about lovers," continued the old man, smiling ; "but she loved Miss Dora with all her heart, and wouldn't have said a word about It for the world. " Several days went on, and the Squire and the Captain went out shooting, and Dick Smith, the head keeper, used to go with them. " One day Miss Dora came down In the little pony carriage with the luncheon. The Squire was Just finishing the beat of a copse, but Captain Calton was outside. When Miss Dora canto up he took her hand and kissed it But I saw it, though I wasn't such a booby as to show myself. , What was worse, sir, the Squire saw it through the hazel bushes, and her pretty face blushing and looking happv. "I heard him grind his teeth where I stood, and whisper a curse. Did you ever hear one whispered, Bir. It makes a man creep all over. "Presently he came out with a very olly air, and after lunch ho drank Miss Dora's health and then the Captain's. 1 was carrying the bag, and the Squire spoke in a bluff sort of a way, so I heard all : " 'My cousin is a pretty girl,' said he. " ' Yes,' said Captain Calton, nervously like, and I could sec his hand tremble. . " 'Ah, well,' said the Squire, heartily, 'I used to bo jealous ; for I always admired Dora, that I did. But what's the uso now ? Never mind, old fellow, I wish you joy of ner; you must excusu my icuiiji;!, s a devilish bad one.' " That was truer than he thought," mut tered tho old man musingly. " Captain Calton answered him in a very friendly way, and the matter seemed all right. " Tho Squire was in a dreadful temper the next morning with Dick and me be cause we hadn't' killed some stray, dogs that had been driving tho woods. ' " He was very savage against poachers, and swore he'd have the spring-guns set for their dogs in the open runs ot tne copses. ' "8o matters went on till just about Christmas, when a large party of the neio-hbors of the Squire came over to shoot under the rjheasant covers. " That day we had no peaco. All the ftnrincr cuns were taken up ; damaged raisins put in the runs to loll the pheasants there, and the woods were watched every niirht. On the night before we met the Squire, wno gave us a curse or iwo ior running against him as he came round the Copse, ile a uceniooKingatier iuo xaisius, he said, for he was a good nana at seeing his orders carried out. " The next day all the party went trom the Hall to the woods, only the Captain ; be loitered to have a few words with Miss Dora. He drew' her back into the hall and kissed her ; and I shall never forget the way she clasped hia hands and looked Into his eyes, saying a word or two. The Squire saw it, and I saw his face. It was dreadful to see, for he had bitten his lower lip in two. He pretended not to soe tnem and walked on after the party, The Sauire was ver" particular In nis shootiner parties about every one going just as ho wanted them to. So now he gave everyoony tneir msiruuuuua ucry to go. And Captain Calton he told to take a ride, which was narrow and through hollies, but a good one for woodcocks. He himself went into the middle of tho copse, with me, and Dick Smith headed tne beat era at the end.' .,; ' ' ' ' . ' " Well, sir, the beating began,, and tho rjheasants srot up well, and there were seve ral shots fired. 'Twas odd to me that the Squire never shot at anything, though, for all that, several birds went by him. didn't dare to speak, though, for he looked so stern. ' ' " By and by he turned and saw Captain Calton in another part. . He swore, but that I took no notice ot. " ' We'll beat this wood again betore lunch.' he said : so of courso we all came out after an hour or two, during which the Sauire missed everything. We all went hack to the wood afjain. Here the old keeper paused, ana arew a deep breath. i "What's coming, .sir?" he saia, "nas never been out of my mind since, day or night, for fifty years, I assure you; " We came back to the copse, and were all put In our old position, and the Squire told the Captain to . take the holly ride again. . " ' I suppose Dora will be here soon with the luncheon' he said with a laugh. '" Soon enough soon enough, said the Squire, with a dreadful sort of laugh, and ms Diacn eyes gleaming m i-utua. " The shooting went on, and suddenly khot sounded from near the holly ride. "'What's that?' 6aid the bquire, sud denly. " ' Captain shot a cock, sir, outside the copse,' and Dick Smith, quietly winking at me, knew how savage the Squire was men changing positions. " ' Here comes Miss Dora.' said I, 1 she'i troinc throueh the holly ride.' . - "'What' screamed the Squire, as he wheeled round and saw, her. 'Dora Dora! not there! Back J for heaven'i eolra ViasV f' K " But she didn't hear him, for the spaniels were in full cry, and the beaters' voices drowned the Bquire s. - "'Dora!' he creamed, sir yes, that' the word '.stoo I You're ' " Before he cot the word out there was a little report like a pistol a wreath blue smoke curled upwara trom Miss juau land's feet, and she fell fell, with her pretty white dress all streaked on the OUBOIU Willi U1UOU. "Ah, sir." said the old man. shuddering, "it makes my heart cold even to think ft it I "I ran ud and lifted her; she moaned nce when we raise her. Her sweet face was all white and pinched with pain. "But Captain Calton came up, like man struck dumb. He knelt down and drew her, poor girl, on his breast ; and laid ner poor ncaa mere as u sue waa tired child. "The surgeon of tho village was out with us. He came up, sir, as wo stood round, rough fellows as wo were, all sob bing; he knelt down and looked at the wound, and then, sir, shook his head. - " Meanwhile tne 'bquire was Dcwg new by two men, cursing, swearing, ana tear ing the grass, curaipg himself and his birth, ana calling on somebody to blow hia brains out, ana they dragged him into the bashes to as not to be heard by the dying girL '.: , " She looked no at h Wr nnm. and her sweet bluo eys were all dim. , Do you know the glazlxig. filmy look that creens fiy&e one dying from yunshot wounds?

'"Poor, poor Freddy!' she murmured, and put her little hand on hia heart. - "'My darliair!' he said, and then- guv such a sob that seemed o tear very heart up, sir. ; "Klss me, bit own,' she 'sM, as beautiful, dimming eyes, with their look of love, were turned to his. ' I can see lti all dark, but 1 in on yonr bosom, Freddy, dear on your bosom love.' "Theia word isho murmured one one ; and then she gave a long sigh ; and it was all over. He took her nt. sir. with such an awful look of crlef on his face that he seemed turned to stone. He'd let no ono inch her. and he carried her in his arms home. . i She said she was on my bosom,' he said, in a voice that you wouldn't have nown for his ; and then he walked on like a man In Borne dream.' " Well. sir. there is to more to tell. The Squire only lived two years, and died in a mad house. " He had set a spring gun da the ride. meaning it for the Captain. As for the Captain, ho went to the East Indies, I heard, and died. That's my story, sir." unce a n . , m w Speech Robert M., Son of Stephen A.

I obey your call. This is probably the first time in our nation's history thata young man nas nad the opportunity ot ap pearing before a popular gathering as the advocate of a truly national party a party that is governed by no sectional interests or puxiisan prejudices ; uui wnose mono is our wholo country, whose eternal prln cinlcs are enunl richta and en mil laws. T do not look upon this as a canvass which win decide tne manner in wuicn the gov ernment of tho country shall be adminis tered ; but as an issue on which will de pend tue Vital question, "shall we have a country?" Sincerely believing In this, I shall not attempt to deal with minor questions of do mestic policy, but shall come at onco to the main issues, Union or Disunion, Peaco or war. What satisfaction docs the true patriot derive from tho adoption of his dearest theories o: government it, in the adop tion of those theories, begins tho ruin of the land he fondly hoped they would lead to greatness? I.aws tourded even upon Divine inspiration, would be uso less if there were no country for them to govern. What theatre is there for tho display of tne energies ot a young ana aspiring citi zen just entering upon the important du ties of life, in a country torn by civil strife ? Wen nas an emtnent American statesman remarked : " There is no path of ambition open to me in a divided and distracted country. To prove that the real issue is pence or war, we have only to refer to Frank P. Blair's letter, .written with a view to his nomination, and subsequently indorsed by tno very tact ot his nomination by tne .Na tional Democratic convention. ; Blair in his letter says : " There is but one way to restore the Government and the Constitution, and that is ' for the President elect to declare those acts null and void, compel the army to undo its Usurpations at the South, dis perse the carpet-bag State Governments, allow tho white peoplo to reorganize their own governments, and elect' Senators and Representatives.". u i; i.. in i - .i i Of course, any attempt to Subvert tho Government of these Southern States by force, would lead to war, as the Governor and all other State officers, civil and mili tary,' are' sworn to obey, support and de fend the Constitution of the State of North Carolina ; and wo will defend it Further down Blair says : " We must restore the Constitution be fore wo can restore tho finances, and to do this we must have a President who will execute the will of the people by tramp ling into dust tho usurpation of Congress, known as the reconstruction acts. I wish to stand before the Convention Upon this issue, but it is one which embraces every thing else that is of value in its large and comprehensive results. It is tho one thing that includes - all that is worth a contest, and without it there is- nothing that gives dignity, honor, or value to the struggle." On this issue ho was nominated.' ; any- further proofs were needed to show the revolutionary spirit of the Conserva tive party, it could easily bo found in tho violent harangues we daily near around ua, their bitter persecutions of Union men, and their unrelenting hatred of the North ana us loyal people. This bitterness toward Northern men, who prove true to their principles, and who do not bow in slavish submission to the opinions of these haughty aristocrats, sell-constituted fudges ot honor and mo rality, I know from nersonal experience. Though descended from one of the oldest families or this ctato. ana born and par tially raised in Rockingham county, upon my return nearly two years ago to my native place, I was denounced as a Yan kee, and generally received with all the coldness and distrust due to one of that detested race. Notwithstanding my own nativity, and the position of my mother's iamiiy, iney couia never lorget tne run tan birth of my father, whose native State, Vermont, with her 80,000 majority, so nobly leads the van ; and I may add, could never forgive his dying efforts in defense or his country. Speaking of him, and feeling that what ever importance any words of mine may have, is derived from the name I bear, and the affection many still fsel toward one who through life proved himself the peo ple's friend, a few words concerning my father mar not be inappropriate. It was with feeling of surprise, and I must acid, of indignation, that I saw his name in- ( scribed upon one of the transparencies ! born in the late uonscrvative procession. I thought that common decency at least would nave prevented tnem irom drag- from the tomb the name of a man" whom they had betrayed and denounced through life, and after his death, whose orphan children they had persecuted. While gazing upon that name I remem bered the time when these same men de clared him a traitor to every principle honor because ho prelerred nis country his party, and bitterly denounced him for his efforts to rally the people of tho West for the defense of the Union. I remember all these when I am de clared a degenerate son; and for every quotation they give me from his speeches 1 will give tuera a uozen. w nen tne tain Unt parades a sentence concerning white man's government I will remind mem oi ma uyiug wurua. bent over the scarce breathing form of the expiring statesman, and asked if he had no message tq send to his children, " Tell mem, saiu ne, 10 voice touuea-u biuium inaudible by the near approach of death, " to obey and support the Constitution and . . 1 1 II HM ". , I me Jaws oi tne ianu. mis nuienin in iunction I intend to obey, when 1 see myself personally abased by the Conser vtUlve press, on account of my po litioul sentiments, and called a traitor the State in w hichlwis born, I would recall to their recollection the time when I was called o ulion enemy. About year 1863, a bill waa filed summoning ThoiUaa Steele (now Associate Justice we eupreme uourt) and It A. Ellington to Qreensboro, to show why they should not surrender the property of Robert and Stephen A Donr'as, alien eneinee tbeConlcdcracy; and wheal an denounced asa .Yankoe ana carpet bagger, I would remind them of their efforts to drive an exile from my native State, and render me t it ranger W tie loli that gaye When the wife birth ; as, however, I have inherited my father's name, and his principle, It is nat ural that I should inherit their animosity. Nevertheless, it Is strange that these men, his bitterest enemies in life, should now claim to be the truest exponents pf his principles, but not more strange than that they should now assert themselves the best friends or the Constitution ot tne united States, and the infallible interpreters of Ms provisions, after they have sacrificed nundrcds ol thousands ot uvea, ana thousands' of millions of treasure to trampto Into the dust that sacred instru ment. . u - - ' Such is their consistency, and such it is throughout all their political principles. If a white Republican addresses a crowd of colored Wn, expressing his honest sen timents, instructing them in their rights and duties, and advising them as a friend, that action involves social equality, and Is disreputable. Hiffh-born conservatives, howevor, can mingle promiscuously among colored men at barbecues, eat from the same sheep, and drink from the same bottle, and they de serve the praise of thoir fellow-cltUens. If a colored man, following his honest con victions, votes tor the best interests or nis race, and as all his higher instincts prompt turn, he is totally unworthy or the ballot, and is even unfit to dig a bare subsistence from the bosom of the common earth. If, on the other hand, that colored man proves a traitor to hia race votes to con sign himself, his wife, and his children to a condition worse than slavery, for. they all say that the condition of an old free negro was worse than that ot a slave, ne is respectable, and his swarthy hand is worthy of grasping the sweetest flowers plucked by the snowy fingers of Carolina's fairest daughters. By reference to tho columns of the Standard you will learn that in the town of Chapel Hill, of classic fame, the ladies, to testify their admiration for the eloquence of a colored Conserva tive orator, presented him with an elegant bouquet of flowers. I have no objection to this, ino nowers were their own. ana they may give them to whom they please ; but I claim the right, as long as I observe the restraints of public decency, ot deciding Upon the propriety or impropriety of my own conduct. Tho time has gone by when one man was better than another because ho happened to bo born in inde pendent circumstances, and hcncciortn virtue and intoUlgcnee alone shall. be the criteria of merit Nothing more clear ly shows the utter hopelessness of the so- called uonscrvative cause, and tno politi cal degradation to which the party has de scended, than tne means employed lo- in sure succes : since they are atraid to leave the result , with the unbiased vote of the citizens of the State and country. Any man who, by refusing employment to all who will not swear to vote the Demo cratic ticket, and this to done openly all over tho State, attempts to starvo a' col ored man into voting against his deliber ate convictions and the best interests of his race, is lees worthy of the ballot than the negro whom he Influences. J 'c'" - - Consider, then, the difference between tho candidates, Seymour, former Governor of New York, and Grant, the conqueror of tho rebellion. . It, is true that Seymour may be tho moro fluent speaker, that is, may find more to talk about ; but when Gen. Grant has anything to say, he is pretty generally understood ; since, for instance, as his ' Immediate and uncondi tional surrender." The former I know by reputation, the latter personally. Gen. Grant has not the qualities requisite in a herq of-romance; but the very fact that his mind is so equally balanced that no ono trait predominates, except, perhaps, his invincible firmness and devotion to constitutional liberty, fits him to calm the domestic troubles of the country hisword has saved. But I have no fears of tho re-! suit. I have too rnuch confidence in the intelligence and patriotism of my fellow citizens of North Carolina, and of the en tire Union. With this implicit trust, look forward to the 4th of next March,' when Grant and Colfax will take their seats, as the inauguration of a new era, when peace and plenty will smile over the entire country, healing the breaches made by the late civil war ; while tho old nag will once more wave in triumph over a happy .and united land.'- 2. '. : ... . : . - Carpet-Baggers. of a One of the most rineine speeches of the campaign was that of General Sickles to the Boys in Blue on the anniversary of the battle of Antietam. He gave the fol lowing admirable historical survey of carpet-baggers : - - - " My mends, there are several kinds or carpet-baggers we have seen in tills coun- try within the past few years. The rebels sent a few of their sort of carpet-baggers here to New York during tho war. Laughter. They came mysteriously, with their black bags, containing a very small amount of clean linen, ana a very large quantity of combustible material, and with this latter they undertook to fire our hotels and burn our city. Well, there are some very distinguished rebel carpet baggers sojourning abroad. John Slidell is one, in Paris, Benjamin is another, and he carries, I believe, a green carpet-bag now. I Laughter.l Brick Pomeroy is carpet-bagger. Applause and laughter. The Chairman or the National Democratic Committee, Mr. Belmont, is a carpet-bag ger from the Rhine. Laughter and ap plause. Corporation uounsei u uorman is a very fair specimen of the carpet baggers from old Ireland, who have taken possession , of the City Government laughter, and if O'Oorman's carpet-bag Is not full yet, it must be a very big one, or else he has failed to profit by his oppor tunities, which no one suspects. Renewed laughter and applause. And then there is ueorge banders, the carpet-bagger oi the rebellon, who wanders over Kurope with or without a carpet-bag, according to circumstances. Great laughter.l But our Northern carpet-baggers belong to somewhat different race. The whole West was peopled by a race of carpet-baggers. William 'enn was a carpet-bagger oi tne right sort Daniel Boone, of Kentucky, Lewis Cass, of Michigan, Stephen A. Douglas applausel, of Illinois ; they were all carpet-baggers.! And yon find that our country, North, East, and West has been peopled by an emigration of carpet, bagger. . Applause. The May Flfwe brought a colony of carpet-baggers ap plause! and landed them on the shores Hew England. William tha Uopqusror took some Norman carpet-baggers over to tngianu, aaa captarea it (applause), ana founded a nation that has sent its carpet baggers forth all over the world, most which thev own. or propose to own. 1 1 Laughter.

Wan.E the unreconstructed Democrats and late rebels of the South are appealing to the war rewrd of Governor Seymour, showing him to have been tho true friend of the Confederacy before it becamo de funct, the party in tho North are attempt ing to show the number of troops which the State placed in the field, under his ad ministration, and the loyalty of his course, by the same record. The attempt to blend such antagonistlcal views Is tho most ri diculous exhibition of the age. The bril liancy of his " war record," from the Gen. Forrest stand-point was such that the more timid and fearful of the Northern managers of the party were forced to de mand an entire change in (he character of Southern speecnes and eauonais, ior tne few loyal Democrats who were inclined to support Seymour and Blair were getting frightened. The record of Seymour during the war was black enough to suit the most apostate of all tho rebel clan. It is for that reason that they all support him, from Jeff. Davis downward. Jetf. is out of the country, it is true t but his sympathies and w ishes are with Seymour and Blair. They are his candidates, as they are the candidates of his former civil and military subordi nates. The whole rank and fife of them are bellowing lustily for the success of the Democratic ticket and its repudiating plat form. Clement L. Vallandigham had the honor or nominating Air. Neymour. we have already stated that Vallandigham owed Seymour a debt of honor which ho was bound to pay. The bitter and malignant course or this same Vallandigham, who acted as spy and traitor within our lines, while our boys were fighting desperately to preserve the Government, led to his military arrest by Major General Burnslde, and his being passed through our lines under military guard, to the bosom of his friends, the rebels. Horatio Seymour, of New York, did everything that was pos sible for him to do, and brought all the force of his personal and official influence to save hiB brother Democrat, first, from having such a scntencepronounccd against him, aud second, from having .that sen tence execnted after it had -been pro nounced and approved. . Ihit tame lloratio Seymour had several interviews with General liurnnule, tr)rretly for thejiurpone of prevmtting th exileof hia friend and fellow Jhmocrat, Vallandigham. If our Democratic friends want our au thority for the statement, and want a de scription of the interviews, and a showing of the spirit which actuated this in tensely loyal (!) Seymour, wo most re spectfully refer them to the present Gov ernor of tills State, Ambrose E. BurnBide, and his .accomplished Adjutant at the time, Colonel Lewis Richmond. Gov ernor Burnsido, in a pertinent speech uiado before the citizens of Bristol, last evening, made the statement frankly, and it was indorsed by Colonel Richmond, who was present at one or more of tho inter views between Seymour and his chief, on this same Vallandigham business.

Was Horatio Seymour the confidant Vallandigham and his fellow-rebels in the North during the war? Did ho exer cise himself and use his office to prevent the just punishment of others besides the exiled Vallandigham? Will our home orators tell our " Boys in Blue," and their own party friends and supporters, tho exact standing of Mr. Seymour during the war ? Shall Wade Hampton be invited to come and enlighten our people, and - shall ho bring Vallandigham with him? Prov idence Prets. - . - Important Letter from General Dix. From the Galena Gazette. A letter from General Dix waa re ceived in this city yesterday, giving his views about the two candidates for the Presidency. We copy it entire, omitting only the opening paragraph : 1 " "PARS, Sept. 8. a a I have taken pains to the statement in some of the newspapers, that I am in flavor of Seymonr's election to the Chief Magistracy of the Union. If I were at home, I should oppose him by all fair and honorable means. I know him well and it is my sincere belief that his want of firmness would renew the dissensions which have brought so mnch evil on onr country. Indeed, I do not think he has any ot the qualifications which are indis pensable to maintain the public tranquil ity at this Juncture. ' I have great confi dence in General Grant's honesty, good sense, sonnd Judgment moderation, stead iness of purpose and disinterested patriot ism ; and I believe the speedy restoration of the Union to its constitutional and har monious action depends very largely on his success. ' - - " It is hardly necessary to add that I am in favor of paying in specie the debt con tracted to save the Union, and that the reso lution of the Fourth of July Convention to pay the larger portion of it in paper, constitutes in my mind an Insuperable ob jection to the candidates nominated carry out what I regard as a palpable violation of the public faith. .," I am, dear sir, truly yours, "JOHN A. Dix." of In order to fully appreciate General Dix's patriotism, it should be known that he intends returning to this conntry the spring, no matter how the election re sults; his advocacy of General Grant therefore originate in no desire to retain his position abroad. His family havo already returned - ' ' '' What perhaps Is still more to "the credit of the illustrious patriot who has atrved the country o long in affaira of. State, well as ia the field. Is, that in January last, when his own name was prominently mentioned in connection with the Demo-' cratio nomination,. And when the ground that the Demacatie Convention would take was still uncertain, General Dix wrote to another friend in the, United State follows; . , .., "Paris, Jan. ia.,1868. at I.nj i to a " I have thought for a year that Grant should be President Tho prestige of name will enable bim to do more than any other man to heal the national dissensions. which seem to me, at' this distance, to aa far from any satisfactory volution ever.

In pursuance of their conspiracy to get him out of the conntry, he was to be sent to Mexico as a kind of tall to Lew Camp bell's kite, but our hero flatly refused to go. But aavs the Chronicle, a day or two after this refusal, the President returned to the subject, and urged tho embassy on Grant, saying be had sent for Sherman to take his place. In the meaatime Congress was about to assemble, and tho air was full of rumors that the President would refuse to acknowledge the validity of Congress, and attempt to disperse it by arms. Mr. Johnson had recently seemed to have pe culiar deahrns . In regard to Maryland. Grant remembered all this, and again de clined to leave the country, tuts time in writing. After this he was summoned to a'fnll Cabinet meeting, where his detailed instructions were read out by the Secretary of. State, as If the objection and refusals had been of no account. They wero de termined to make him go, whether he would or not to drive him out of tho country which ho had saved. Grant waa now aroused, and, before the whole Cahl net declared his unwillinttncss to leave Whereupon the President not answering Grant turned to the Attorney-General, and asfced him whether there was any reason why Grant should not obey this order whether he was ineligible to the position in any way. Grant at once started to his feet and exclaimed : " I can answer that question, Mr. President, with out appealing to tho Attorney-General. I am an American citizen, have been guilty of no treason or other crime, and am elig ible to any civil office to which any other American is eligible. But this is a purely civil duty, to which you would assign me, and I cannot be compelled to undertake it Any legal military order you give mo 1 will obey ; but this is civil, not military, and I declino tho duty. No power on earth can force mo to it." The President and his . Ministers were astounded and silent, and Grant left the Cabinet chamber. General Grant in Church. : ; Tnit writer, on yesterday, whilo walk ing along Wabash avenue, looked up Bnd saw General Grant jUBt before him, going in the same direction, lie was the least conspicuous-looking of the two individuals who were at his side. Dressed in a plain black broadcloth suit, but in rather marked contempt of tho present style ; of only medium height, with a plain, low crowned, sou hat, not entirely tree irom dust, covering a head that had evidently been in tho hands of a country barber, General Grant, naturally enough, did not attract tho attention of the hundreds whom he met, unconscious that they wore passing one of the world's notabilities, the greatest of living Generals. Scores of people, most exquisitely garbed, were rolling in their carriages t different places of worship, while this unpretend ing republican Goncral, the next Presl dent of the United States, was trudging along, unrecognized by the thousands on the avenues, who, had they known of his presence, would have halted and gazed with eager wonder and curiosity. Soon the General reached tho church of the Messiah, the Rev. Robert L. Collier's, and quietly ' entering, seated hlmBelf with much modesty and humbleness as any ordinary stranger in the city availing him self of a courtesy could have exhibited. Neither minister nor congregation, if we may except a lew or the latter wno some way got wind of the fact, knew that such a distinguished worshiper was in the house The few referred to gave the sermon far less attention than did General Grant Had the pastor beon advised beforehand that he would - be listened to by the man who is to-day the most powerful indi vidual on this continent, he could not have prepared a sermon better suited to the oc casion. His text was taken from the third chapter of Epheslans, 14-21. The sermon was beautiful and striking, especially that portion in which all the races of man, " made of one blood," were spoken of as a great family. How broad and catholic this view ! how fitting to be taken in the presence of the great man who had fought the battles of equal rights, and won for them the most glori ous and decisive victory of the age I By the time the services were over it had become pretty generally known that Gen eral Grant was present, and quite a num ber of .persons pressed forward to shake his hand. He stopped at the door, how ever, but a few moments ; parted from one of his companions, understood to be his brother, and 'with the other, probably member of his staff, glided off quietly State street, where they took a street car, the. General standing np all the way Randolph street, unrecognized by a single person except the writer. At Randolph street he took another car, and soon was lost to us in the centre of the great city. Thus unobtrusively and unpompously does this foremost man of all the world move abont among his fellow-citizens. How unlike a European General and pro spective Chief Ruler of a great nation. Truly is he a republican. But it need not be supposed that General Grant does not appreciate the magnitude of the responsi bilities that rest upon him. No wonder that h.s shoulders are stooped in sympathy with his burdened spirit. No wonder that his brow wears an anxious, wearied look. Tho weight of a nation's welfare borne about by him, whether he moves silently and unknown among the crowd, or is the most observed of ail men at the National Capital. Cliitxigo Evening rout, Value of Detraction. in as as be as of a ad mit the The alue of personal detraction and abuse in a political canvass has been fully proved by the course which the Copper bead press has pursued toward General Grant We have been at some pains, looking over our exchanges, of which we have a large numbor.of the Copperhead persuasion, to note the varying' epithets which have been heaped upon our candi date's head. Wo began the record when the General was supposed to bo available 'for Copperhead uses, and wo have con tinued the litt down to the present time. Tho reader will note the change of time whoa ' the General's political fata was known to be proof against Copperhead se duction. We quote : " A great soldier." ... " An example of magnanimity "A great Captain." 1 "The stuff of which statesmen made." , 1 ' - " A leader of rare endowments." "The rnnn. whose ?ajqr saved the conn try. "The conqueror of the rebellion.' The nero oi many victories. ' 1 "The savior of our institutions." Dmihtfiil in his nolii-v." "Well enough but for nis associations."

"Cirrus-pony Grant" " Drunkard " Liar " " Sot." " Fool." And so on, ereteendo, wanting only new terms of opprobrium to make lilru fouler suit In face of tactics which invoked epi thets like the last twenty we have quoted epithets used most foully by the Cop perhead papers that claim tho most re spectability, General Grant's popularity among tho peoplo has been steadily ris ing ; and never did ho occupy so high a place in the affections of his countrymen as ho does to-day. This Incessant berat ing and belittling have turned tho atten tion of the people to the General's per sonal history, as now written, so that all men may read it ; and to know that is to know that he Is a man of singular purity of life; that his honesty cannot be im peached, that his modesty is beyond as sault, that his power overmen is unexam pled ; that his talent is of the highestorder ; that his habits aro emphatically temper ate ; that his patriotism is unquestionable ; and that ho ought to bo elected President ot tno united Mates! tmch good work has detraction dono.

Tns inhabitants of Tuyahualco, District of Chalco, in Mexico, while quarrying re cently came suddenly upon a mysterious town, sepulchred amid volcanic lava, within which were found the houses and corpses of its former denizens, perfectly mummied.

Every day, at ono of tho recorder' courts in New Orleans, la to be found an elderly lady, neatly, even elegantly dress ed, apparently watching with intense in terest each trial, as it is called, and when court has adjurned, quietly moving away with the crowd. She has a painful and singular history. Childless and alone in the world, she was once the centre of a happy family circle. Bute series of mis fortunes came and left her hopeless and aimless. The epidemic of 1853 deprived her of her husband and two of her chil dren. Of her two remaining sons, one was killed in the army, and the other, about a year since, was arraigned before this same court for murder. Before this awful shock the mother's reason reeled and left her a harmless maniac. Since then she each day imagines her son on trial, and watches there for his coming. Lay alter day sue prosecutes in the court room her tireless watch. Disappointment never affects her, for she thinks she will see bim to-morrow. Those who have charge of her gratify the harmless delu sion, and thus, morning and evening, she is found at her post, influenced by an af- fection that defies the flight and wreck of reason.
