J. SYLYANUS CLAIR,
Chairman County Committee.
We have determined not to insist upon
the strict letter of our terms until after
the August ev,prt, and therefore give these
who are still in arrears to us fur sul,serip-
tion, until that time to pay up at the rate
of $2.00 per year. We want everybody
to have the JOURNAL at $2.00, so avail
yourselves of Court to bring in or send in
your cash. Send along your money, or
you must pay $2.50, and at the end of the
Year $3.00. It is only $2.00, and anybody
who takes our paper can raise that much
money. Don'Lwait until you are two or
three years in arrears and then get out of
humor because your bill is so large. Pay
up ! Pay up !
"NO DIVISION !N OUR RANKS."
If we properly discern the signs of the times there is no
truth more apparent than that the Republicans of Juni
nta county, are heartily tired of the dissensions and feuds
which have unfortunately divided and distracted them
heretofore; and that they are determined hereafter to let
bygones be bygone., and unite earnestly and energetically
for the success of our ticket this fall. On account of the
wrangling and quarreling among oursel. ee we are now
represented both in the House and In the Senate by Dem
ocrats, and we arc placed in Democratic Senatorial and
Representative Districts. This, merely, if anything could,
ought to teach us the importance of unity, and we believe
the lesson will not be disregarded. The Democratic Inas
jority in the District is not so large but what it can I.e
overcome, if we but will it We were pleased tonotice the
unanimity with which the Standing Committee acted on
last Saturday, and it certainly augurs well for the success
of the party in the future. Notwithstanding effort. were
made to distract them, they calmly proceeded to the die
charge of their duties, and by a tote apprmaching una
nimity, adopted the resolutions as found la their procees--
legs published to-day. This clearly shows that any man,
no matter who be be, who hereafter places himself in the
say of the unity and success of the party, in order to gouts
ify personal animosity, will be treated as he should be, as
an enemy of the party, and as more desirous of securing
hie own aggrandizement than the success of the party.
The above article we take bodily from
the Mifflintown (Juniata county) Repub
lican. This we regard as the true policy;
the correct position. This is the state of
affairs we have labored hard, as the accept
ed organ of the Republican Party, without
any reference to ftctions or wings, to bring
about since we have controlled these col
mnns, and we intend to bring — Them about.
If there are those within the ranks of the
Party who are determined not to work in
harmony with it they must get out of it.
The lines shall be closed square up. There
shall be no lagging, no double-dealing, no
buying and selling, no trading off to ac
commodate Democrats, if Party drill can
prevent it. We believe in the scriptural
injunction : "He that is not for us is
We are firmly convinced of the correct
ness of the position of the writer in the
above article: "That any man, no nut
ter who he lc, who hereafter places himself
in the way of the unity and success of the
Party, in order to gratify personal animos
ity, will be treated, as he should be, as an
enemy of it, and as more desirous of se
curing his own aggrandizement than the
success of the Party." We believe that
the Republican Party of Huntingdon coun
ty is prepared to fully endorse this posi
tion, and to forever eschew strife and con
tention- and to dismiss from its ranks "any
man, no matter who he be," who will
insist upon "his own aggrandizement," by
refusing to act in harmony with the great
majority of the honest and sincere men
who compose the party, in preference to
that of the common good.
Having been compelled, during the last
few weeks, to step aside from our usual
course, and to administer a severe castiga
tion, to a dissatisfied element which has '
fastened itself upon the Republican Party,
in this county, for the purpose of showing
that element, that the Party is not to be
trifled with in the future, we now desire to
show to the public the provocation which
induced us to do this.
The Globe, edited by Wm. Lewis, Esq.,
and claiming to be Republican, of the 27th
of June last, contained the following item
"We want Andy Curtin to come home.
Ile is the only man to RALLY TIIE PEOPLE
AND SAVE TUE STATE PROM GOING
OVER TO THE DEMOCRACY. The
hearts of the people arc not with Cameron
or any of his dogs."
This we understood as being due notice
that that journal was going over to the
Democracy. This was the interpretation
of every man to whom we spoke upon the
subject. No other interpretation can be
placed upon it. These few lines covecgd
the first six lines of edtorial ; and if this
was not the meaning it bore what was its
meaning ? It was copied broadcast through
out the State, by the Democratic press,
in which it is still to be found, showing,
that the editors on that side of the house,
understood it as we did. And in addi
tion to this, this same paper contained an
attack upon Hon. John Scott headed thus :
"Senator John Scott again attempts to
Disorganize and Defeat the Republican
This article covered two mortal columns
and made as many misrepresentaions as
could be crowded into so much space. The
JOURNAL claims to be the organ of the
Republican Party of this County, and the
Globe concedes this, because it asserts that
at is a "free and independent paper"—"re-
cognizing no authority above our own"—
ja its language. Then, occupying the pc
sition that we do, it is our duty to vindi
cate any Republican who is unjustly
assailed, and especially so when the paper
in which it is done claims to be Republi
can. Ilad the Globe done W. H. Woods,
Esq., a like injustice it would have been
our duty to have, to the best of our ability,
removed any false or erroneous impressions
and we would have done
The Globe, after two week's reflection, and
after it had learned that it had done Mr.
Scott grcst injustice, refused to make the
amend honorable, but on the contrary added
fuel to the flame. This persistence is the
strongest evidence in the world that the
Committee business was a mere pretext
and that an effort was to be made to keep
up strife. We know, by indisputable
evidence in our p>ssession, that further
strife was decided upon. Under such cir
cumstances what was the JOURNAL to do ?
Was it to fold its hands, listlessly, and say
go on and tear the Republican Party to
pieces, we have decided upon peace ? WaS
it to say we can't help it if you will keep
up strife, but it is our province to keep
peace, and we have done all we could, and
can do no more ? No! It was our duty
to show up this perfidy to every true Re
publican and we have clone so, and we
shall not fail to do so in the future with
any man wag is guilty of such infamous
The Globe again on the 18th of July
said : "The Republican party in this coun
ty can't expect anything fair and honor
able from Mr. Scott or anybody under his
influence, and until be is kicked overboard .
THERE IS NO CERTAINTY OF A REPUBLI
CAN TICKET BEING ELECTED. TuE PAST
CANNOT AND WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN.'
Now, mark : Hon. John Scott must be
kicked overboard, and until he is, these
fellows do not intend, if they can help it,
to allow a Republican ticket to be elected!
Here is coolness for you! lion. John
Scott, who, in the short space of two or
three sessions of Congress, has won a lead
ing position in the nation, and who is at
this time Chairman of a Congressional
Committee that has fur its principal object
the vindication of the course of the Re
publican party towards the States which
have lately been in rebellion, and upon
his successful vindication of the Party
its future depends, to a great ex
tent, is to be kicked overboard ! Yes,
KICKED OVERBOARD ! . And when we
have undertaken to defend this outrage
upon a United States Senator we are char
ged with being fictional ! we. here deny
any such intention, and assert that we stand
by the party ! But we desire to add a
word or two more and we have done.
It is charged that Hon. John Scott
has refused t i appoint those who have not
stood by him to offi,o. ?Ir. Scott is the
best judge of his own business, but if we
were in his place, we would stand by oar
friends, and the way for these men to sat
isfy hint that they are his friends is to
shake off his enemies and to come up to
the mark like men and support the Party.
Last Fall, when an honorable compromise
was made, apparently satisfactory to all
parties, the same men who now complain,
secretly and stealthily, determined to elect
a Democratic Congressman, and did so.
What is to be accomplished by concessions
to ouch wen ? Mon once betrayed di.ord
their betrayers. Burnt children dread
the fire. Then the only way for these men to
redeem themselves is to come up fairly and
squarely to the support of the Party, or
make a "new departure" and go over to
the Democrats. Better this a thousand
times than to have them constantly taking
advantage of their position in the Repub
lican Party to demoralize it.
'We have-done with this subject, and we
here assure the Globe that any capital it
eau make out of its efforts to stow that
this paper does cot represent the Republi
e,m, Party, is a party, but a faction, it is
at liberty to make.
m. Republicans, can the 12th inst.,
you are called upon to elect delegates to a
County Convention to assemble on Tues
day following. See that the best men in
your respective districts are elected. Men
who will discharge their duties fearless
and without being the cats'-paws of any
body. Let every man who feels an inter
est in the welfare of the party in flouting
don county, do his best for the cause
without any reference to persons who
think that the party was only made for
them. The man who wants to run the
party for his sole aggrandizement, for his
sole benefit, is an incubus that should be
shaken off at once.
The State Temperance Committee
have reconsidered the call for a State Con
vention, so that the folly of putting a tem
twee ticket in the field will not be en
acted. Let temperance men stick to their
principles and accomplish their work in
the existing parties. What can a handful_
of men accomplish in an organization of
their own when they must appear as a
mere grain of said in comparison with the
mountains around them ? No, no, gentle
men, stick to your places, and fight for
your principles where partisans will not
be afraid to show their hands and will wish
you God speed.

Statement of P. M. Lytle, Esq., in
Reply to Dr. Thompson.
HUNTINGDON, PA., July 27th, 1871
P. IL LYTLE, Esq., Dear Sir :—I find the fol
lowing in the statement of Dr. Thompson,
published in the last JOURNAL:
"Within three days after the adjournment of the Con
ventioti our Representative delegate went to Harrisburg
for the express purpose of having my name placed upon
the Committee, and it was accordingly dem.. Prior to this
I was not aware whew°, lobe the member, nor was I think
ing about it, until Mr. Lytle gave me this information, 118
well as a history of the whole proceedings, with instruc
tions not to say anything about it. as Mr. Woods thought
that Dr. Brown was on the Committee."
As the above does not agree with the state
ment made by Dr. Thompson before the Com
mittee at Altoona, I desire you to give a full
statement of the facts. Yours, &c.
IluNrooDos, July 28, 1871.
WIL LEWIS, Esq. :—Your letter of yesterday,
calling my attention to the communication of
Dr. Thompson published in the JOURNAL of the
25th inst., is before me. Of course I saw the
Doctor's statement immediately after its pub
lication, and my first impulse was to reply to
it, but upon refiectioa, I concluded that itTn
volved only a private controversy, and was not
the subject of public interest. More than this,
I am sure that the party is disgusted with the
newspaper bickerings, which for several years
past have been instrumental in bringing noth
ingbut defeat, and in establishingpersonal en
mities which unfortunately exist to the present
time, For these, and other reasons, I conclu
ded not to disturb the Doctor's communication,
and I would have maintained my decision, bad
it not been for your letter. I have not the
slightest hesitation in giving to you whatever
information I possess as to the means by which
the Dr. became a member of the State Central
Committee—not however, for the purpose of
contradicting him, because you already know,
(as intimated in your letter to me) that his
printed statement is not at all in consonance
with his assertions to the Committee, to you,
and to others at Altoona on the 22d lilt. Then
he said he did not know bow, or by whom he
was appointed. Now, he claims that when he
made thi. statement, he knew that it was not
true. How is this 7 _ .
Look at another aspect of the Doctor's posi
tion. If I went to Harrisburg for the express
purpose of favoring him, and if.ta accomplish
'H&J repudiated the appointment of Dr. Brown,
and deceiving others, placed him in the posi
tion which he now so heartily appreciates, is
he not, to speak mildly, very ungratful, in be
ing the first man to blow ?
But the facts are these: when I went to liar
risburg as a delegate to the State Convention
I had not decided whom 1 would name as the
member of the State Central Committee forour
county. I met Dr. Brown there, and upon his
personal application, seconded by a number of
prominent Republican, he was placed upon the
Committee in accordance with the resolution
passed by the Convention. Before naming him,
however, I mentioned my intention to several
gentlemen who were in attendance, and they
suggested that I would promote the interest of
the party by the selection of a man who was
known to be a practical adherent to party prin.
civics—informing me, for the first time, that
Dr. Brown was suspected of having voted for
an opposition candidate at a recent election. I
was somewhat impressed with the suggestion,
and I immediately began to cast around for a
man of such political purity, but my search
was in vain, although Dr. Thompson was by no
means overlooked. I took counsel of the
friends that bad advised me, and after mature
deliberation, we unanimously concluded that
since 1869 no such man had lived in the . Re
publican household of Huntingdon county, and.
that as only one fall was imputed to Dr. BrOwn;
he was perhaps the best party man we had,
and therefore best fitted for the appointment.
I have accounted for my conduct at the Con
v - ention and I now reach the Doctor's state
ment, wherein he says that "within three days
after adjournment of the Convention, our Repre
sentative Delegate went to Harrisburg for the ez
press purpose of having my name placed upon
the Committee, and it was accordingly done."
I may just say here that I was at Harris
burg on the day of the Democratic Convention,
just one week after the Republican Convention
had adjourned. I went there on business of
a private character, and attended to none
other. It is true that whilst there I was told
that Dr. Thompson had been placed on the
Committee in the stead of Dr. Brown. This I
mentioned to several persons when I came
home, but as they were inclined to be incred
ulous I gave no further attention to the mat
ter. Un the 22d day of June, I met Dr. Thomp
son at Altoona, claiming a seat as a member
of the State Central Committee. I told him
that you were alto there claiming to represent
our county in that capacity, and that you
might fight it out between yourselves, as I felt
that you were both inclined to assist me in
my little aspiration, whereupon he informed
me that I had no claim upon him, that r had
opposed him at the Senatorial Conference held
.sountime previous at Huntingdon, and that
be would be obliged to retaliate. I replied
that if he felt as he stated, my first duty
would he to prevent him from getting on the
Committee, if possible. He defied me, and we
separated, but in a little while, from some
cause which is unexplained, returned to as
sure me that be was very energetic in my be
half, and couldn't cousistantly be otherwise.
Under these circumstances, you know what
did at Altoora.
In his statement the Doctor refers' to a let
written by me and endorsed by the Senato
rial delegate, recommending you as a suitable I
person to fill the vacancy occasioned by the
death of Dr. Brown. Ile alleges that this let
ter was retained by me, end showed to him and
others. The fact is I kept a copy of the letter
with its endorsement and this I may have
shown, but I am sure that the Doctor never
saw it unless it was shown to him at Altoona.
No one saw the original, and I do not enter
tain the slightest idea that either Mr. Woods
or yourself believes that it was smuggled as I
has been imagined.
To the witty and insulting part of the Dec
tor's letter I have no answer. A personal con
troversy with him would be extremely unpleas;.'
ant and unprofitable. If we are to be ventila
ted for public entertainment and amusement,
I would suggest to him, that, for our mutual
beneli t, we allow the facts to be gathered ana
compiled by some one who known less about
us than we know about each other. A :per
sonal attack upon the Doctbr, such as he has
made upon me, would be entirely uninteresh
ing to the general public, but the Feats, Foi-
toles and Eancies of a Country Physician would
doubtless be immensely relished by the read.
ers of Mr. Beadle. The work, however, shall
never appear unless we be whipped into its
. . _
If the Doctor had taken the advice of Lis
friends, who told hint that his statement, as it
is termed, was unfit for publication, all con
troversy concerning the subject upon which
he writes would be at an end. Although his
statement was written on the Gth inst., he was
not able to procure its Roblication until the
26t4, nor would it have appeared then had he
not directed a friend of his in Huntingdon to
hare it printed regardless of coat : Uf coarse
printers will insert anything under such in
ducement. I have no doubt the Doctor has
discovered that writing public letters is not
his forte and am sure he will not undertake it
- We have plenty to do in our county between
this and the election, aqd the time is too short
and valuable to be spent in erimination and
recrimination. Let us quit our foolish and
groundless dissensions, unite as Republicans,
nominate a good county tickel,_and...then-ae-t.-
C 410 ouc cuou, ulluett to give it such
a majority as we used to give when the wise
men of the party knew how to behave them=
selves. Yours, &c. P. 31. LYTLE.
[We have no desire to make any com
ment upon the above save to say that we
hope Mr. ICwis is satisfied with the clear,
pointed and unequivocal statement of Mr.'
Lytle, and to correct the latters statement
in regard to Dr, Thompson's inability to
secure the publication of his letter, which,
we repeat, was nut published for reasons
given iu our last. We believed that no
gentleman, and especially a newspaper
man, w,ulcl do an act of injustice, with out
making repArati.m when the injustice. was
diseivered,.lf this nod been done, as we

CM OF GLASGOW, Scotland,
July 13, 1871.
Dear Journal:—After a pleasant voyage over
the Atlantic, I again write you from this city.
We left New York on Saturday noon, July Ist,
having on board the steamer eighty cabin and
sixty deck passengers, and a crew of eighty,
making in all two hundred and twenty souls.
Among the passengers were three Baptist, one
United Presbyterian, one Methodist and one
Episcopal-minister, and one Catholic priest.—
Wc also had on beard President Mitchell. of the
New York Caledonia Club, and out of respect
to him the Club accompanied the steamer down
the bay as far as Sandy Book, some 20 miles,
with a steamboat, having on board some five
hundred ladies and gentlemen, a fine brass
band, and several small cannon, from whic.h
salutes were fired occasionally. At Sandy
Hook the Club, with their party, bid us fare
well, amidst the firing-of cannon, playing of
the band and the waving of some five hundred
handkerchiefs which, to me, was solemn; hut
grand. We shortly then launched out on the
broad Atlantic, when we took the last look,
for some time, of the United States. We met
a strong south-eastern breeze, and the sea be
came heavy, and a goodly number of the pas
sengers were laid aside for the night.
July 2d. Sabbath, was clear and pleasant,
and all on board appeared cheerful. Captain
Craig is a christian gentleman, of the old Scoth
Presbyterian stamp, who sits at the head
of the table and invokes a blessing as we gath
er around the same. The table is of the very
choicest, and plenty of it. We only have five
meals a day. Porridge at 7A. at., breakfast at
81, lunch at 12, dinner at 4, and tea at 7 P. M.
So you see we live to eat. As is customary,
the Captain made the necessary arrangements
for the religious services for the day, which
were conducted as follows: Singing the 100th
Psalm, rending part of the Bth chapter of Ro
mans and prayer by the Rev. John Erskine,
Presbyterian, of Orange county, N. Y., and ,
preaching by the Rev. Dr. A. K. Bell, Baptist,
of Hollidaysburg, Pa.,
from the 14th verse of
the Bth chapter of Romans. Friday at 12
o'clock we are in latitude 41° 3V North, lon
gitude 64° 15' West; made 246 knot', and out
that distance from New York, July 3d, weath
er is very fine ; nothing special. The weather
became intensely foggy, so much so that the
pilot had to blow the whistle every ten min
utes for fear of coming in contact with other
vessels. This day in lat. 42° 32' North, long.
63° 15 , West, made 273 knots and out 519.
July 4th. Weather fine. Spout the 4.11 of
July on steamer Anglia. Her Majesty's flag
was hauled down and the stars and stripes
were run up to the top of the mast-head, nod
a salute from the guns of the steamer and
three hearty cheers were given fur the dear
old flag. In lat. 44° 20f North, long. 58°
West ; mercury 05°, and we made to-day 248
knots, out 707 knots, This evening, for the
first, we saw the sun set or disappear in the
ocean in all its splendor.
July sth, This morning we were surround
ed with ducks and Mother Carey's chickens,
and had the pleasure of seeing the dolphins
playing, and two whales appearing and spout
ing the water up into thaair. About noon we
passed Cape of Pines, and in the afternoon
rounded Cape Race, sailing within three quar
ters of a mile of the Light House off the point
of New Foundland. Received a salute from
the British flag and responded to the same.—
This was the most interesting day since we left
our Domes. We came in sight of fourieehergs,
the largest ofwhich we saw when some thirty
mitts :,11; and passed within a mile -of it. It
was at least lOU feet bight andlooked as large
as the State Capitol of your own State, grand
and imposing in appearance, having the form
of columns and fine architectural work, and
as white as chalk. 'We are now Fusing over
the banks of New Foundland. We sawn large
fleet of fishing sail-boats fishing for mackerel
and codfish. This ground is one of the ques
tions in dispute between her Majesty and the
United States. We are now in let. 46° 32 ,

side the steamer, except the broad ocean.
Sabbath, July 9th. In lat. 54° 52 , North,
long. 29° 30' West. You see, Mr. Editor, we
are still going further north, hence the cold
ness of the climate and length of the days.—
Last night when the sun set it was about 9
o'clock, and the day did not cut rely disappear
till about 10 o'clock. This line of steamers
keeps the most northern route. This day we
had our regular religious services. Preaching
in the morning by the Rev. John Erskine,
Presbyterian, from the text: "How shall we
escape if we neglect so great a salvation." At
2 o'clock, preaching by Rev. J. W. Evans, Bap
tist, from your county, from the 25th, 26th and
27th verses of the sth chapter of Ephesians.
July 10th. Wind from the north west, and
the waves larger than an. time since we sailed.

is the tenth day out. In lat. 54° 50' North,
long, 20° 54 , West; temperature Gl°, time
made 270 knots and out from New York 2353
knots. Our steamer is 250 horse-power with
full rig of sails, uses 45 tons of coal per day,
carries 2000 tons of freight, and her cargo con
sists chiefly of flour and wheat for Scotland.
Sea very heavy and rough.
July 11th. The sea calm, sun shining, and
' the most pleasant day we have had. The pas
sengers, expecting to see the land this evening
ou the coast of Ireland, are all bright and
cheerful. In lat. 53° 9 , North, long. 12° 86'
West; mercury 65°. At 2 o'clock, P. M., the
passengers held a meeting in the cabin and
passed resolutions complimentary to Captain
Craig and his officers, directing the same to
be published in the Glasgow and New York
papers, after which we all joined iu a hearty
song "Auld Lang Syne."
July 12th. This morning when we awoke,
about 3 o'clock, our ey,s, for the first time for
the last eight days, caught a glimpse of land,
which proved to be the Emerald Isle, the coun
ty of Derry on the northern coast. No lover
of Patrick ever saw Erin come to his view with
greater pleasure than wns that of your bumble
servant. Aftstsalling some thirty miles along
the coast we came to the place where, it is
said, the ill fated steamer "Cambria" was lost,
and all on board except one individual. Short
ly after leaving this point we came to the Bay
lof Louga Foyle. Our steamer sailed up it to
a town called Moville, at the month of Foyle
river, where the passengers for Londonderry
embarked on 11 steamboat, Our steamer then
returned and steamed up the coast, passing
the great Giant's Causeway, one of nature's
grandest curiosities. Here we saw a large
number of small vessels fishing for Irish her
ring. We shortly after passed the Island of
Itathlin, where Sir Robert Bruce took refuge
when defeated by the English. Since then we
I have passed the Irish or North Channel, and
the high lands of Scotland are in sight, We
here left the coast of Ireland and entered the
Firth of Clyde. On either side of the Firth or
Bay it is bluffy, with here and there glens
opening up with large flocks of sheep grazing.
We passed several Islands covered with stu
pendous cliffs of rocks. One of these Islands,
called the Isle of Craig, is perfectly round,
about one fourth of a mile in diameter at its
is over 100 feet high, and tapers up to a
peak, resembling a dome. The proprietor of
it keeps wild fowls of every variety snit, and
a man to prevent p rsons from shooting them.
-We na - s. several other Islands, one of con
siderabief.c only rsrand. After we
ascended the Firth some thirty miles the
country on both sides opens out beautifully,
gradually sloping back, with magnificent
buildings and improvements. The fields all
looking green, with either oats, barley, flax
or grass. There is very little wheat raised in
Scotland, antrno corn. Their harvest wont
be fit to cut till in August. We passed Sunda
Island, some twenty miles in length and from
ten to fifteen in breadth, owned by the Duke
of Hamilton, and well cultivated, highly im
proved, with his tenants settled thickly over
it. And still they say the Duke is in debt.—
We passed several large towns before we reach
ed the city of Greenock, having a population
of over 50,000, beautifully situated on the south
side of the bay. Here we saw one of Her Ma
jesty's largest Men of War, called the aßlack
Prince." From this city to Glasgow is 22
miles. In lat. 55° 42 , North, long. 10° 41 ,
West; mercury to-day 57° ; made 262 . knots
and out 2890 knots, or some 3300 miles from
the city of New York. Arrived at Glasgow
the 12th day, after a pleasant voyage, in the
evening. From the city of Greenock to Glas
gow, on the rivet' Clyde, the country, with its
fine buildings and palaces, is grand—better I
seen than described. We arrived here on the
evening of the 12t1f.- The scene at quay, in
landing the steamer, was stirring and interest
ing. Hundreds of ladies and gentlemen were
there in readiness to hail the majestic steamer
Anglia from the United States with our okl
flag floating at the top of the mast-head. We
took lodgings at the Royal Hotel.
Glasgow, the commercial capital of Scot
land, is finely situated on the river Clyde, at
the head of navigation. It is the most popu
lous city in Scotland, and the second in popu
lation and commerce, in the Empire. It con
tains over 500,000 inhabitants. The chief por
tion of the city lies on the north bank of the
Clyde, which is crossed by five fine bridges,
and lined with magnificent quays. I was in
formed that before our Revolution, in 1776,
that tobacco was the great trade. At present
the iron lords rule supreme, as a trip down the
Clyde will convince every one. Hundreds of
iron vessels, in all stages of advancement, sur
round you on every side. lam told one mil
lion tons of iron are used annually. It is here
the first steamer in Europe was launched, in
1812, Henry Bell being the projector. A novel
institution has lately been established in this
city—a cooking depot—the object of which is
to provide cheap food for the working classes.
This depot, with its branches, supply good
breafast for three pence, (6 cents) dinner, con
sisting of soup, meat, potatoes, and pudding,
for 9 cents, and tea for 6 cents. Here is a city,
importing food from America and supplying it
to the working men for 21 cents per day. The
cathedral is one of the finest churches in the
city. It was erected in the 12th century. It
is in the form of a Latin cross of Gothic style.
The nave is 156 feet long and G 2 feet wide.—
Glasgow possesses a University of high repute
as a seat of learning, but thq Royal Exchange,
situated in Exchange Square, is perhaps the
finest building in the city. It is built in the
Corinthian order of architecture. I, front of
the Exchange stands an equestrian statue of
the Duke of Wellington, which is one of the
finest monumental statues in Glasgow. You
shall hear from me again from London.

THE NAVAL FIGHT
THE COREAN FIGHT.
The following special account of the Cor
ean fight was received by the America from
Shanghai, having been brought by the
Palos, which left Corea June 3d, to get
stores and bring up some eight inch guns
from Shualot. The fleet arrived at Je
rome Gulf on May 20, and report ten days
in surveying the channel between the va
rious islands, coming to anchor at a point
designated on the French charts, Ife
Boise. Fur three days the surveying
party was away. In that time they met
some natives who sent off a communica
tion asking where we were from and ho
pine we were well. Monday, this week, a
number of the Coreans of the third and
fifth ranks came aboard. Governor
Lowe's interpreters received them, they
were not of rank to be received by the
Admiral or Ministei. They were shown
about the Colorado and distinctly told
that we meant to send a surveying party
up the river and that our mission was
peaceful and that we should nut attack or
molest them unless they first assaulted us.
They expressed themselves as non-commit
tal and glad to know that our mission was
peaceful, and as I believed that they were
satisfied, on Thursday the Monocacy and
Palos with four steam launches, two from
the Colorado and the others from the Al
aska and Benecia, left the ship about half
post ten A. M., to go up and pass Kanghoa
Island, at• the mouth of the river Salee,
and survey. The party from the Monoca
cy under Captain McCrea numbered 170,
from the Peals under Colonel Rockwel 150.
The lainehes were manned with eleven
men each. Capt. Homer C. Blake was on
the Pella Accompanying the expedition
were Cowie, private secretary to Minister
Low on the Palos ; Messrs. J. McCaslin
and Ed. H. Julesburg, Paymaster Spauld
ing of the Palos were with Lieutenant
Mead's boat. The parties were armed
with cutlasses, pistols and Remington
rifles. The Benecia launch carried a
twenty-four pounder in the bow. The
others were provided with twelve poun
ders all having a good supply of shell, can
ister and grapnel!. Availing themselves
of the flood tide the launches went ahead
abreast up the Kongho river, sounding as
they proceeded, the Palos and Monocacy
following at a short distance. The boats
which were unmolested for some time
prosecuted their works regularly on the
river which is here a mile wide. The day
was bright, pleasant and all well. All ap
proached the narrow portion of the river
about ten miles from the Colorado. Here
a great turn out of white-coated Coreans
was noticed on a bluff of the left bank
with flags flying, presenting quite a mar
tial array. A nearer view indicated this
number about two thousand meu, clothed
in white mete not unlike the present Eu
ropean overcoats, white pajamas tied at
the ankle with socks and light summer
shoes such as the Chinese wear. There
were two red stone fbrts visible, one on
each bank, apparently armed with up
wards of sixty-nine eighteen pounders, and
guarding the narrow passage in the bend
of the river. The one on the right bank
was the smaller of the two, not noticed at
all during the fight except by a shot or
two to find cut if any were stirring there
in, but in the main fort on the left bank,
rising nearly a hundred feet from the
water's edge was evidently the stand-Oil:it
of the Coreans, and from which they ex
pected to intimidate or drive away in dis
may the foreigners. The launches kept on
at their buisness without heeding the
spectacle pre.ented on the bank. The
Benecia launch had meanwhile dropped
astern owing to a lead line fouling her
screw so that when the party come oppo
site the fort, she was nearly two miles off
Mr. Cowie took good observations of the
Coreans and counted more than thirty
six guns in position. Beside these were
seen a number of jingalls carried by two
men each, These last with bannered men
helped to swell the array, which formed
upon the side and top of the hill, behind
the stone wall. The turning point of the
river was almost reached, and when at a
distance of about one hundred and fifty
yards ftom the shore of the stream a fire
was poured from the large fort, followed in
moment by the discharge of the guns from
the fort ou the right bank. The launches
at once turned their bows on the fort and
the guns quickly replied, while the Palos
and Monocacy coming up on a five knot
tide rattled away over the heads of the
flotilla with their eight inch rifled guns.
Lieutenant Commander Rockwell with the
Palos made splendid practice with the
bow guns, while Captain McCrea who fol
lowed in the Monocacy gave the enemy
the benefit of his broadside on the battery
at close quarters, so close that the vessel
grazed some hidden rocks which formed a
reef' above the bend of the river. Not
withstanding this accident which displaced
her iron plate and caused her to leak, she
kept up a steady- fire till the forts were
silenced. During the action there was
little or no breeze, and the thsck smoke
from the river almost hid the combatants.
At intervals, however, it was noticed that
the mortar from the walls was flying off in
clouds as the shells burst in the works,
and in ten minutes from the commence
ment of the firing the Coreans were driven
back over the hill. Admiral Rodgers
had said before the surveying party left
his ship: "Don't fire unless you are fired
upon, but if you are fired upon don'ebe
first to stop firing." There were no or
ders given to land, so that after Captain
Blake had satisfied himself as to the dis
contfiture of the enemy, the gunboats and
launches were ordered to move around the
bend and anchor a short distance above the
scene of action. The only casualties re
ported were on the Alaska's launch. A
sailor was in the act of pointing a howit
zer when a ball struck him on the side of
the head and shoulders, another had two
fingers cut off by the recoil of a gun. It
seems strange that with hot, close firing on
the part of the Coreans such small damage
should be done, but it is believed that this
fortunate issue for our boats was owing to
the-larger guns on the forts being elevated
too much, for the gunboats and launches
were all more or less struck by balls, and
many narrow escapes took place, but for
tunately none were badly hit. After the
boats had rounded the paint the Coreans
returned to their guns and in time to open
fire upon the launch of Benecia which
was delayed and left behind. Master
Schroeder in charge of the launch did not
hesitate to force a passage against all odds
and join his companions and as soon as
fire from the fort was delivered, coolly re
turned the fire and pushed on up the
river at slack water. The boats headed
down the stream again, but before they
started on the return to the squadron a
few shells were thrown over the hill into
the f trt. This settled affairs for that day
the Coreans finding their fort of no use
even round a corner and out of sight, con
cluded to evacuate. They were seen
marching out of the works in single file
and makaing a short route to the woods in
the rear. The work of the suiveyißgzar
ty being concluded the vessels returned to
the squadron wiahout further molestation,
W. B. L.
YOKOITAMA., June is reported
that during the recent tight between the
gunboats Monocacy and Palos and the
Corean's forts, that a note, signed by the
Chief Counsellor of the King, was tent to
our boats by a messenger, which stated
the Coreaus refused to bold any inter
course whatever with foreign natives, and
that the crew cf the American ship Gen
eral Sherman were put to death under the
laws of the land because they were guilty
of piracy and murder after they had been
shipwrecked. Our vessels returned to their
anchorage alter receiving this letter, and
taking as near a survey of the forts as pos
sible. Admiral Rogers now awaits further
instructions from Washington.
