A pugnacious Omaha paper wants to see some newspaper man knock out Sullivax and Killex as the reporter in San Francisco did Paddy Ryan. It might be dangerous for the champions to visit Omaha. While the president is trying to find chances for the civil- service, he might extend it over the census bureau. There are 50,000 or more holes for pegs there, and it is very desirable that only capa ble men should be entrusted with the work. It is estimated that the ratio for a congressman under the census to be taken next year will not range far from 200.000. That will give the Twin Cities, and perhaps the suburban attachments they now have, three representatives in congress. About all the babies of the right per suasion the past few weeks have been named George Washington. It is pretty safe to use a man's name after he lias been dead seventy-five or a hundred years. It is noted that the parental de mand for Benjamin Harrison has about played out. —mm- St. Louis last week had a case of burial alive averted by the merest acci dent. The doctor certified that the lady was dead, and the funeral was under way when the husband detected a sign of life and the party was restored to health.' Cremation •; seems to have an advantage in this respect. The legislature of Pennsylvania, which is about to adjourn, is commonly spoken of by the papers of the state as Quay's legislature. It has but few Democrats, and the Republicans seem entirely subservient to the great man ager. The parties he aided to put In power in Washington are not quite as grateful and docile. TnE conundrum of the Chicago paper, "Where was Chicago 100 years ago?" is only an exhibition of the conceit prev alent there. Less flattering, however, would be the natural response to the in quiry as to where most the Chicago people. will be a century later. Sympa thy and good taste repress the Saintly City foreshadowing. -___* Ben Butler displayed a new phase of his remarkable versatility in the modest role he assigned himself at the New Orleans passage of twenty-seven years ago. His picture of the gallant Farragut was vivid and faithful, but it was not a happy reference to Porter. Better let any little clouds of that sort be lost in the bright light of other heroic and dashing eras. There are but 5,300 clerks in the rail way mail service, and since the 4th of March it is claimed that 2,500 of them have been given release from official duty. It is the most remarkable feat in the history of the service, and is effected to "rectify the incumbency," as it is called, lt must have been an aggrava tion to the patriotic management that the president refused to push'; the civil service blanket off a few clays longer, so that the last Democrat could be eliminated. Some people do not realize the full strain upon men of great enter prise. __■ There is nothing in which the field for the display of sagacity is so palpable as in knowing when to live. Had Gen. Grant been born twenty-five years later, it would have never been sus pected that he was a great military genius. George Washington couldn't have got the nomination for president even from the Prohibition party of these times, for he took his toddy regular every morning. Edison wouldn't have been allowed fo discover things three or four centuries earlier. The trouble with most people is that they blunder into the world at the wrong time. -«»- The impression that Boston culture is indigenous and spontaneous finds trouble in the reports of the superin tendent of the public schools there that there have been an average of 18,000 cases of corporal punishment each year for several years past. In more be nighted regions theories have prevailed that brains and esthetic development could be quickened or fostered by the rod but the conceit was cherished that the modern Athens was less gross and material, and that a softer and more spiritual regime was on duty there. But beans are a very material diet. The Xew York Herald of recent date lias an interesting report from a corre spondent in Maine of the operation of the prohibition law there. He finds that at Bangor, a town of 20,000 popula tion, there are 151 saloons, all public and unrestrained. The liquor -dealers con trol the Republican party, and will allow no man to be elected who will hot pledge himself not to .enforce the law. The Democrats are a small minority and can do nothing. The investigator found that a similar condition prevailed throughout the state. The liquor, in terest deals with the Republican party, which is the personal property of Mr. BLAINE. The latter, of course, doesn't leave any letters on . the subject un burned, but allows the party to be run in the interest of the saloon. This is the ptohibitory operation in the state that took out the first patent. .•' m — '■ THE PIONEER JURIST. Among the many interesting occur rences of yesterday in connection with the ceremonies in celebration of the opening of the new court house, the most notable incident was the presence of (.Jen. Sibley and his remarks to the bar association. It was notable because Gen. Sibley is the oldest and most illustrious of the few surviving pioneers. But it was especially notable because Gen. Sibley was the first person to hold a judicial office west of the Missis sippi river. At the time of his appointment to a judicial station his jurisdiction extended from Prairie dv Chien to the British line, embracing a territory as large as the French empire. His judicial office also invested him with the power of a monarch, for his word was law, and there was no appeal from his decisions. He had no written code for his guide, but in his judicial administration de pended alone on his natural sense of what was right between man and man, and upon a judicial disposition inher ited from his father, Hon. SOLOMON SIBLEY, chief justice of the supreme court of the territory of Michigan. . Gen. Sibley was likewise the first foreman of the first grand jury ever im paneled west of the Mississippi. Wonderful man! And what wonder ful events have been crowded into the space of his lifetime. PERPLEXED DEMOCRATS. The Democratic leaders find them selves suddenly confronted with a ques tion almost as perplexing as the con duct of a national campaign. It is the question of who shall be chosen to suc ceed Mr. Barn m as chairman of the national committee, for upon the choice depends very largely the chances of Democratic success in 1592. In the last election the national Democracy had the misfortune to be under the leadership and management of men who did not believe in its principles and policies, and the wonder is that it came any where within sight of victory.' If the party makes the same mistake next time it doesn't need a wide stretch of prophetic vision to tell what the result will be. Zeal is worth a great deal in apolitical campaign, lt is difficult to see how a man, or a set of men, imbued with pro tection ideas, can be zealous in the cause of tariff reform. That was the trouble the Democrats had in the last election. Brice, Barnum and Gor man, the three prominent leaders, were all identified with the mining and manufacturing interests, and were con sequently in favor of protection. The Democratic party stood squarely on the Cleveland platform for a low tariff, and yet trusted its destiny into the hands of men who were opposed to its policy. Surely, no such mistake ought to be made a second time, and yet there is a possibility that it will. It is under stood that Senator Gorman and Mr. Randall are plotting to capture the Democratic organization, with the ex pectation of reversing the party's posi tion on the tariff, apparently unmindful of the fact that the tariff is the only live question in our national politics. President Harrison is conscious of the fact, and with singular fidelity to his convictions and to the interests of his party he is giving office only to protec tionists. He is carefui . that his party shall not make the mistake the Demo crats did under the Cleveland admin istration. If the Democrats possess the wisdom of the Republicans in the management of party affairs, they will remove from the national committee every member who is not in full sympathy with the low tariff movement, and fill their places with men who will he zealous in the cause and will not be using their positions to play the Judas Iscariot in politics. If a protectionist is chosen to succeed Mr. Baknim, it will be poor encourage ment for the tariff reformers in the party to persevere in their effort to overthrow the monopolists. The dis couraging effect of : such a folly would be apparent in the next election, and as the Democrats have no margin for risks, the wise thing to do is to close up their lines and complete their organization on the only issue that will be available. —mm- : THE SIOUX COMMISSION. The Sioux commission met at Wash ington yesterday to receive instructions and probably learn something as to who the people are with whom they are to negotiate, and what commissary stores will be needed for their sojourn in the district, where first-class hotels are not numerous. There are no indications of the haste in this work shown in putting the postal department in a state of effi ciency by the expulsion of the off-color people in politics. It is to be hoped that the patience of the residents of the country about the • reservation will not be needlessly tried further. The map prepared for the commission leaves 13, --474,627 acres for the Indians in the six new reservations of Standing Rock, Cheyenne, Crow Creek, Lower Brule, Rosebud and Pine Ridge. This will be not far from an average of 2,500 acres to each family, on which most white peo ple could manage to live without being fed by the government. Upwards of 10,000,000 acres will be opened to the whites for settlement. A COSMOPOLITAN DISEASE. Diphtheria is one of the cosmopolitan diseases. It cares little for climate or geography, and will get in its work al 1 most anywhere that it can find the taint ed elements upon which it feeds. No season or atmospheric condition dis courages its pernicious activity, nor is any age or sex exempt, It is fostered by bad air, filth, and dampness, but easily extends its ravages among those who seem to have the most saluborious surroundings. It is perhaps "more fre quent in cities, but its most fatal work is at times done in the country. The Boston board of health recently issued a circular containing useful informa tion in regard to the disease, . its favor ing conditions, and the means of dis infection. It is pronounced contagious and infectious. It may be communi cated by kissing, coughing, sneezing, or the use of infected articles,' r . as towels," napkins, etc- ; A- recent; report gives the deaths, from this disease hi one week as . 47 in New York, .26 in Chicago, 111 in St. . Louis, and 25 in London. — mam THE INSECT AGE. _ Some scientist who sees things in too somber colors finds that one of the grow ing problems the agriculturist of this country has to meet: is that of insect pests. His observation has probably been more particularly directed to the older regions ' when he concludes' that . one-third of the product of the farmer's toil is devoured by .the insects. ;' He j forebodes also that the earth is about to THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBS: TUESDAY . MORNING 7. 1889. pass through the age of insects, as it has already passed through the ages of , fishes and reptiles and is now in the age, of mammals. He does not suggest any more effective way of averting this peril than to cultivate birds aud attract the ; insects, to bonfires. The more rational : way would he to come West, where the insects are little known, and will DO. be likely to get in any very . serious ; work for a good while. Prophets of evil have always been blatant, and still the world wags on pretty comfortably. ■ _■> POTTER'S SERMON. It Is a noteworthy fact that all the brilliant oratory at the centennial cele- j bration lias been forgotten except one address. Mr. Depew's great speech, President Harrison's appropriate re marks, the responses to the banquet toasts, have all passed out of the public mind and yet everybody is talking about Bishop Potter's centennial ser mon. The bishop is not half so noted a man ;as the . president, nor is he one fourth part the orator that Mr. De pew is. The reason that his sermon is remem bered, and is so much talked about, is because he said something the people wanted to hear. And he spoke it, too, in plain old English language that everybody could understand. The very things that he talked about were upper most in the public mind, and the people were wondering if there would be any one in New York on that occasion who would have the manhood to speak the truth as it ought to be spokeu. Bishop Potter is the only one of the many eminent men assembled there to do reverence to Washington's mem ory that rose to the full dignity of the /occasion and completely filled the meas ure of public expectation. No matter if his remarks were offensive to those in high station, they were none the less truthful or timely. They were indeed words spoken in season. lt is a hopeful sign for the republic that the bishop's sermon has attracted such universal attention and elicited so much commendation. It is an evidence that, notwithstanding the corrupting influences of the times, the popular heart is still right. The masses are not worse than they were a hundred years ago. They are just as honest and as liberty-loving as they were in the days of Washington. The merchant able quality of modern politics is to be of short duration. The people have taken into their heads to reform the ballot system, and they are going to do it in spite of the powers that be. The evil that Bishop Potter rebuked is a national sin, but it does not imply a degeneracy of the people. mm LOTTERY INVESTMENTS. By some recent computations it is found that Chicago people yearly sink $1,500,000 in lottery schemes, the bulk of it going to that octopus in Louisiana operated under state auspices. The laws in Illinois prohibit the sale of tickets, as in most other states, but are constantly violated. A tax of $2 a head for the support of the sleek bene ficiaries in the distant state would not be paid very cheerfully in any locality, but there is hardly a city or town in the North that is not a large contributor to this purpose. Thousands of dollars go from St. Paul every month. Men of small means set apart a fixed sum each month for the lottery sharks, probably more than they pay the preacher. At tempts to prohibit the use of the mails in the matter meet little success, as they are easily evaded, and in fact most of the money is sent by express. There seems no way to effectually cure people of this folly, except by costly experi ence. BUTLER'S MALIGNITY. Ben _______ was a soldier brave, and used to war's alarms. And while a can non ball never got a chance to take off his legs or arms, it does seem a pity that some wayward shot did not cut a slice out of his slanderous tongue in order that the real heroes of the war might be protected in their reputations. His recent attempt to blacken the character of Admiral Porter by charging him with cowardice at New Orleans, when that city was captured by Farragut, comes with bad grace from a man whose military record consisted, as John A. Bingham once expressed it, of . living in a bottle and being fed with a spoon. Admiral Porter's subsequent service and promotion are a sufficient contra diction to the Butler story, even if it needed contradiction. Besides, the calumny is barred by limitation. THE REMOVAL RECORD. The removals in the postoffice depart ment last week only numbered 800. The week before 1,016 Democratic heads were lopped off. The falling off in the score last week was due to the fact that one day was a holiday, and the good Mr. Wanamaker was absent three days at ! the centennial celebration." He will be | at his desk all this week, and with the | Christian services of his active first as : sistant; it is expected that this week's : record will average 200 per day.

Jewelers Organize. About twenty-five of the retail jewel ers of Minnesota met at the Ryan last evening to organize an association. Their object is to combine against what is termed illegitimate selling by jobbers who go to the retailers' customers and undersell them. The opinion seemed to be unanimous that too much of this sort of thing has been going on, and the only way to put a stop to it was - to com bine. ,The association will be of the nature of a mutual protective society, and meetings will take place period ically. A meeting will be held at the YV est hotel,. Minneapolis, on May 20, when permanent organization will be effected and officers elected. -__*« " — Practically Over. Special to the Globe.

BLAINE'S_A_BUGABOO. At Any Rate Mr. Harrison Starts When Jim's Name Is Spoken, And Frequently Shows His Fear of the Cunning Sec retary. Adam E. King: Will Probably Be Made Consul General at Paris. Important Work Mapped Out by the Fish Com mission. Special to the Globe. i Washington, May 6.— There : Is " a thick streak of harmony one hundred and fifty feet long and about forty-five feet in* diameter between the White house and the . department of state. This harmony is generated wholly by the man who wears George Washing ton's seat and his . grandpa's coronet. Honor bright, Ben Harrison is not a small man intellectually, but he is not a big man. He has more than ordinary ability. He could not have lifted him self to eminence and power by the straps of his boots, the boots of Tippe canoe. Yet, after all, he is a small man. I always admired him when he was in the senate, and • would respect him now if he would permit it; but he won't. He is jealous and fearful of Blame, and he is small enough to show ; that feeling '-. to the very teeth of the great ./fan from the Pine Tree state. That is a small trait in a president. James G. Blame is made to feel, more and more, that he is merely an executive clerk te Harrison, just as Prudeu and the other fellows of the clerical force at the White house are. Harrison is mak ing Blame a candidate in 1892, in spite i of Blame's earnest and honest desire to let all ambitions of that kind bury themselves with the dead past. SE<S_U_TA_BY WIN DOM . has been smiling under the castigation of the critics. He is an old friend of Senator Gorman's, and would do all things in reason for bis friend. But the partisans are "pitching into him" for his reappointment of Gorman's brother. Windom is not the only Re publican who will stand by a Demo cratic friend if he can. Sawyer, of Wisconsin, and Stewart, of Nevada, stood by Lamar, and compelled his con firmation. Last week a resignation was called for in Kansas. Tlie Democratic official was a personal friend of Sena tor Plumb's, and he will not need to resign. There is not any need of howl ing, down Windom— not yet. He will make greater mistakes, probably, later on, and then will be the time to pound him. No man can be secretary of the treasury four years without making mistakes. HONOR AND PROFIT. Adam E. Kins to Be Consul Gen eral at Paris. Washington, May 6.— Gen. Adam E. King, of Baltimore, formerly naval offi cer at that port, has, it is said, been de cided upon at the state department for consul general at Paris. The appoint ment is attributed to the close personal and political friendship existing be tween Gen. King and Secretary Blame. Gen. King's name was mentioned early for collector of the port of Baltimore, and the influence of Mr. Blame would perhaps have secured the appointment, but for the decision of the cabinet offi cers at their first meeting not to inter fere with matters in other departments than their own. Gen. King, it instated, has' had the Paris appointment under : consideration for some time, hesitating to go abroad on account of business in terests requiring his presence in Balti more. It is understood in Washington, however, that he will conclude to ac cept the consul generalship, which is both an honor and a profitable position. FINN Jf FOOD. Summer Plans of the National Fish Commission. Washington, May 6.— To an Asso ciated Press "reporter to-day Col. Mc- Donald, tbe fish commissioner, set forth in detail the plans proposed for him for the summer. At the request of the Ohio fish commission tbe United States commission this spring added to its reg ular programme the distribution of pike perch, commonly called pickerel, eggs and fry collected and hatched at Sandusky. About 80,000,000 eggs were secured and these are now being planted in the waters of the Illinois, Ohio, and Western Pennsylvania. The trip of the distributing car to Illinois is reported to have been one of the most successful ever made. There are now being taken at the- Fort Washington station, ten miles down the Potomac river, about 20,000,000 shad. During the summer, the cars will be engaged in the collection and plant ing of indigenous fishes in the Missis sippi valley in the states of Nebraska, Kansas, Illinois. Ohio, Indiana, Mis souri and Michigan. The several steamers attached to the commission have their summer's work laid out for them, and it is of great importance. The Alabatross will leave San Francisco about June 1, going as far as the Priv ilow islands in Behring's sea, where a study will be made of the seal fisheries, in accordance with a resolu tion of congress adopted last session, as well as of the general fisheries along the Southern Alaska peninsula. On the way up, the Albatross will leave a party of investigators in Alaska, who will ex amine into the salmon fisheries there under the terms of another congres sional resolution. The new hatcheries are to be located at Put-in-Bay island, Lake Erie, which will be the largest fish hatchery in the world, having a ca pacity of 500,000,000,000 eggs a year. . VALUABLE WORK. Topographical Surveys to Be Con tinued This Surveys. Washington, May 6.— The continua tion of the work of making a topo graphic map of the United States will be carried on during the coming season by the geological survey. The work is under the immediate supervision of Henry Ganett, the chief of the di vision of geography. He has about 125 men in the office at Washington to whom he assigns yearly . the locality in which their field work is to be prosecut ed. The maps prepared as a result of these surveys are made on the scale of one inch to the mile in the northeastern section of the country ; on the scale of one inch to two miles in the southern portions of the country and the Missis sippi valley, and an inch to four miles in the thinly settled re gions, of the west. Counter lines indicating equal altitudes are shown, thus making it comparatively easy to detect the undulating, character of the country from the mountains to the sea. This work of the geological survey has been carried on during a number of years under the supervision of the several heads of the bureau since its organization. Through its medium about 600,000 square miles of the coun try have been' topographically "• sur veyed. : Besides this, there is a region .: of about 40,000 miles in the extreme northwestern section of the country, which was surveyed by the Northern' Pacific railroad company, and which is accepted by the government as a satisfactory survey. Thus there is over.: one-fifth ;of the entire area- of : 3,000,000 square miles included with the United States (exclusive of Alaska) • which has been brought to a state when an immediate ; glance at the map will Indicate the. altitude of the coun try - , with ' respect to the sea. An ! annual appropriation of $200,000 was made by, each session of the . last con- J gress for the purpose of continuing this line of work. ; In Colorado and New Mexico the, work : has been in progress all winter, and in : Kentucky and West Virginia field operations have just commenced. Another geographer is working in Arkansas. The force of topo graphers during the coming season will work in . the following ' states, in many of which work has been partly done: Maine, Virginia, West Virginia, Ken tucky, Georgia/Alabama, Michigan, Wisconsin, lowa, Kansas, Texas, Col orado, New Mexico, Nevada and Ar kansas. Mr. Gantiet hopes to be able to have at least 100,000 . square milds sur veyed before the cold winter arrives. Called to Time. Washington, May C— Attorney Gen eral Miller has called upon Marshals Jones and Needles for. an explanation of their conduct and that of their dep uties on the occasion of the opening of the Oklahoma territory. ' ■ _» . MUST NOT RECOGNIZE IT. Royalty Cannot Stand the French Show. London, May 6.— transpires that Lord Lytton, the British embassador to France, was really desirous of remain ing in Paris to witness the opening of the exposition, and plainly intimated his wish to the foreign office. The queen, however, commanded that his lordship should withdraw from the French capital, at the same time inform ing Lord Salisbury that it would never do for the minister of ; a royal house to participate in, or • even countenance a ceremony designed to commemorate the overthrow of royalty. The Tory press adopt a similar view in their comments upon the opening of the exhibition. They profess to forgive the revolution ists for their iebellious acts, but do not condone their excesses, nor do they admit the benefits of the republican form of government, which is the ulti mate result of that struggle. On the whole, the Conservative press can see no reason for the exposition, neither can they bring themselves to the belief that it will be otherwise than a misera ble failure. __ ** — VIGOROUSLY DENIED. The Catholic University Not a School of Monarchial Ideas. New York,' May 6.— the Commer cial Advertiser to-day appears an article on Bishop Keane and the Catholic university, alleging that he has imported a foreign faculty with monarchial and reaction ary ideas to teach young Americans; that there is no Americanism in the university; that there is a feeling of dissatisfaction among the priests of New York at his course; that they will not meet with the approval val of most of the other bishops, etc. In an interview to-night Bishop Keane said : "This article is a monstrous ab surdity. I did not individually have the selec tion of the professors. Noth ing was done without consultation wtih the sixteen bishops ■ and archbishops. We have many able men among the bishops and priests of the United States, but they are engaged in their dioceses and seminaries and could not be spared for the particular kind of teach ing required in a university; a training which is certainly not to be had in the busy life of parish work. The only man so equipped here at pres ent is Manager Corcoran, of Philadel phia,and he was one of the first asked to join the faculty. He declined on account of his age and health. While we have drawn from abroad, it is the earnest . desire of the bishops, as well as of the pope,that we should use American brains entirely as soon as possible. The asser tion' that the professors were selected because of their monarch ial tendencies is a contemptible absurd ity. Every one who knows me knows that my opinions are the opposite of monarchical, that lam an out and out American, thoroughly imbued with the '. doctrines of our American democracy and the principles of popular sov ereignty established by our American constitution. Every cardinal in Rome, and the pope himself, is sure of it. There is no functionary in Rome, and least of all the pope that has the slightest wish that we should make a tendency to monarchical teaching, for he fully appreciates that the American constitution contains the highest form of government for our country. In all details and characteristics the universi ty will always be thoroughly Ameri can." ___ PRAIRIE-DOGS. What a Visitor to One of Their "Towns" Says of Them. The prairie-dog is no more like a dog than he is like an elephant. Instead of being a carnivorous canine, with danger in his eye and treachery in his mind, he is a prairie marmot, a chubby, fat paunched ground-squirrel, with a short, tail. He is the jolliest little rodent un der the sun ; he is as lively as a cricket, as watchful as a weasel, and, to all ap pearances, as happy as the day is long. While you are still some distance from the town you see the inhabitants run ning freely about, nibbling at roots and blades of grass, and foraging at quite a little distance from their respective dwellings; but as soon as you show your self within a hundred yards of the mun icipal suburbs, the alarm is quietly given and every dog scampers for his burrow as fast as his stumpy little legs can carry him. On reaching his open door, which is a six inch hole running down through the center of a little mound like a miniature volcano with a bottomless pit for a cra ter, he poises himself on the rim, stands up on his hind-feet so high and so straight that he looks uncommonly like a tent peg, and views the landscape o'er. When you get fairly into the town the holes are found to be as thick as apple trees in an orchard, and on each of the mounds, excepting the very near est, there will be a prairie-dog, yapping away at you as if his whole life de pended upon his bringing out a hundred and twenty yaps to the minute. Per haps twenty dogs will be barking in dustriously at you in concert, with twenty tails jerking spasmodically in unison and twenty pairs of eyes watch ing you with keen interest. As you slowly walk forward and cross the imaginary dead line that the near est dog has drawn around himself, he dives head foremost into the bowels of the earth, and his tail twinkles merrily from side to side as his hind feet dis appear. When you run forward and apply your ear to the hole you hear an indis tinct, shuffling sound, which grows fainter and fainter, until it finally ceases, and then you hear his jolly little bark, "Chit-tit-tit-tit!" come like a smothered laugh from the regions be low.—Youth's Companion. •-__■• MARINE ADVICES.

Butler Says He Will Down Ad. miral Porter. _ ': Washington, May o.— Admiral : Por ter has been interviewed again on the charge of Gen. Butler that he ran away at the Battle of New Orleans. After quot ing letters from Secretary Welles and others, Admiral Porter said: "it is all nonsense to say that we forsook our duty for an hour. The forts surren dered to me, and Butler knows it. His position is untenable, and he never would have attacked me had he been sober. That speech of his was a drunken speech, you know. I'll give him enough of a reply, however. I'll fire it at him for the next three weeks, and then lie will let me alone for five years. I shall not hear any more from him during my life time, for I don't expect to live another five years. I suppose he was celebrat ing his capture of New Orleans. Ho claims it, I understand, although tho city was in the possession of the marina corps for fully three days before Butler and his troops got there. I know that because 1 towed them." ' GEN. BUTLER, fortified behind ponderous legal tomes and immured in huge piles of manu scripts, sat in his office on Capitol bill this afternoon, engaged in the prepara tion oi a reply to Admiral Porter re« garding the New Orleans episode dur ing the Rebellion. He has enlisted the assistance of .his law partner, O. D. Barrett; business wili be subordinated to the work which was inaugurated by the general's utterances at the recent banquet at Boston, Mass. When a re porter interrogated Gen. Butler as to the course he would pursue concerning Admiral Porter, he replied :"When Por ter will say that he did not go down thq river- with his fleet below the head o] the Passes on the day that Farragut passed the forts, 1 will prove he Res, He has not said that yet." Among the papers on Gen. Butler's desk, and which will be a prominent factor in the proposed answer, is a brief of the record in a case whicli was tried several years ago in the supreme court of the District of Columbia before Judge Humphrey. On the brief is inscribed: "Supreme court, District of Columbia,' in admiralty, No. 200. United States in behalf of the officers and men of the North Atlantic squadron versus the ironclad ram Texas and the Beaufort." "We will show up a transaction in which Admiral Porter was interested,** said Mr. Barrett, "and in which he claimed prize money aggregating $882,121.60 for the capture of these two vessels, when, as a matter of fact, they were in possession of the army. It was in, closing days of the Rebellion, and these two alleged men-of-war were on the point of destruction by the Confederates after the sur render of Lee. Admiral Porter put in a claim tor the amount of prize-money stated, but the case was thrown out ol court, and especially when it was shown that the two boats only brought 15.00(1 when they were disposed of. 1 think Admiral Porter will find it necessary to consume more than three weeks in set tling Gen. Butler, and the prize-money case is ONLY AN INSTANCE that we will cite against him in this con troversy. It is not upon hearsay evi dence that Gen. Butler has made the statement that Porter ran away from a floating dry dock and two small Confederate steamers. After Farragut went from the passes, and ran by the forts to New Orleans, Gen. Butler followed in his headquarters boat, and was thus between Porter and Farragut and able to see and judge what transpired. Had Gen. Butler acted upon the information given hira by Porter he would have aband oned Farragut and ceased operations against the forts, but he was better in formed than the commander of the flo tilla, who. the day after he had reported that the Confederates were in pursuit of and would destroy the fleet, retraced his steps when it was shown that there was no foundation for his scare. This controversy will not be settled by pooh-poohing on the part of Admiral Porter, as he will find out before we get through with it." "When that bird of ill omen." said Admiral Porter, "takes offense at any one, he 'bottles up' his venom until in one of his maudlin intervals, he expels it. On my first acquaintance with But ler at New Orleans he sent me an impertinent message, upon which 1 wrote to him that if he did not send me an ample apology I would take personal satisfaction. He had to make the apology after doing all he could to dodge the issue. Since then we have not been at all like Damon and Pythias. About once in every five years, after one of his drunken bouts, Butler makes a spasmodic rush at me like a mad bull, but I have always caught him on my horns and thrown him flat on his back. I wonder the public should notice what the old imbecile says, and except for the tun of laying him out again, I would not notice hira now. He is the only man 1 ever heard of who could outlive the contempt of the whole nation, could always run away in time of war and yet flourish. I came very near threshing "him while he was military governor of New Orleans, and am sorry 1 did not do it. The general is going to write a volume of 'Reminiscences.' If he will come to me I will give him a book full about himself which will enlighten the pub lic, who may have forgotten the time when he went by the name of 'Beast Butler' among the children in the streets."
