.Altogether the best of our literary quarterlies
Is he North American Review. Indeed it Is the
only one that can be regarded as possessing that
kind of authority that is derived from age and
continued good management. Published now
by Ticknor 48:, Fields, and , edited by Professors
Lowell and Norton, the Itcriem ie better than it
ever was. Old habits and formalities have been
thrown off; popular topics are treated in popular
style; and In this time of freedom of thought, it
is something to be informed of the authorship of
the - va`rious articles, as has, been the
custom in recent tau fibers. The January
number of this year o pens with a Boston
article, written by a Bostonian, on "Boston.'
Mr. Charles Francis Adams. Jr., is the author,
and be does not scruple to expose some of the
weaknesses of "the Hub.' But, outside of .Bos.
ton, there are not many people that could be
much interested in the article. This is followed
by a very readable paper by Mr.V. D. Bowed*.
on the "Stornelli" of France:see) dell' Ungar°, a
poet who treats modern political events and ques
tions In Italy with a rare epigrammatic force. The
third article, on "Railroad Management, - makes
some good points, bet they refer chiefly to Bos
ton and Nlasf:achliketts, Mr. A. S. Hill, in the
fourth at tick, makes a clever - defence of Dean
Swift's charaeter against the bitter charges of
Thacheray and others. Rev. James Fran is re
port to the British Government, on the Common
Schools of America, Is the subject of a readahlp
article by Samuel Eliot. "Co-operation, - whin
has lately bean so much talked of as a philosophi- •
cal and economical system, has some of its fault s
exposed In an, article by E. L. Godkiu. But
the next article, by Professor Lowell himself,
on - Witchcraft," would redeem the poorest
and most provincial of magazines. It Is lull of
learning and research, of humor and satire, and
is wide/. -n in really excellent English. Sidney
G. Fisher. of Philadelphia, is the author
of , the next article, on "Nominating Con
ventions." It is, like everything of his, well con
sidered and well written, and we may refer again
to it and its topic, as related to this city and
State. The concluding article In the 1: , ;r1,141,4
an eloquent tribute to the memory of the late
Governor Andrew, by A. G. Browne, Jr. Under
the bead of "Oldest Notices" are ..xurte well
written and judicious articles on a number of
recent publicatrons.
The r.i.ita.ry for February is an excellent num
ber. "Steven Lawrence, Yeoman," is continued.
Professor Blot gives a valuable paper on Dinners,
and Mrs. Yelverton discusses, from a somewhat
personal point of view, "British Marriage Law
and Practice. Mark Twain has an amusing article
on "General Washington's Negro Servant."
"Popular Songs," by George Wake man: an ar
ticle on modern actors, which gives some very
good criticisms; "Reminiscences of Dr. Way
land," and several other papers are all interesting
and readable.
"Hours at How," for February has a capital
variety of articles, including an excellent paper
on modern trashy literature, by Greenwood, the
Lambeth "casual," called "Pen-Poison." Dr.
Bushnell continues his striking series of papers
on the "Moral uses of Dark Things," and Miss
Yonge's "Chaplet of 0 - scads" is also continued,
Thore are two interesting papers on Fitz-Greene
Halleek, and an unpublished poem by the same
poet. T. B. Pugh is the Philadelphia agent:for
this excellent monthly.
"T Jr, Lady'N Friend" for February gives its
usual varied store of light and pleasant maga
zine reading together with the latest fashion
plates, and \ patterns of all manner of pretty
things for ladies' gear. Deacon 6: Peterson an
uounce_three- novelets-Ifor-- the-present

"Our Young Folks" forVebrnary Is tilled with
unusual supply of good things. Dr. Hayes
continues his interesting "Cast Away in the
Cold." " The Old Life• Boat ;" " The Downfall of
die Saxon Gods;" "Wide-Ifouthed Kluhn ;',
"Blocked in the Snow," and several other lively
pieces are all excellent. T. B. Pugh, BULLETIN
BUILDING, is the agent.
Arthur's Hone Magazine continues to give a
variety of well-arranged contents in poetry and
prose, including its valuable housekeeping and
needle-work department. Mr. Arthur has com
menced a new series of temperance tales,
and his
coadjutor, Virginia F. Townsend, is writing a
pretty story called " The Rollands."
Mr. Arthur's "Children's Hour" has become a
great favorite with the little ones, and we are
glid, to hear that its circulation Is rapidly in
creitsing:, It is very judiciously edited, and its
iiinstrafiens and typography are equal to the
very best class of juvenile periodicals.
- _
"Thr Nursrry" Is a very pretty juvenile, of a
character kindred to the "Children:B Hour," pub
lished by J. L. Shorty, Boston. It is designed
for the very youngest readers, giving some of its
stories in extra large typo for the benefit of that
class. Its . illustrations are beautifully executed.
MONl;7llp*r rx PERti.—The Peruvian Govern
ment is about to erect a monument to commemo

of two sculptors and two architects who have not

contestants. Three prizes will be accorded. For

Sr. Loris, Jan. 27.—The committee appointed

an address to the Republicans of Missouri,
which gives, among other reasons why
General Grant should be nominated by
the Republican National Contention for
President, ill- honesty, Le having proved himself
to be a patriot, because he is a man of the people,
=prang from their ranks, devoted to their inte
rests, and possessed of those rare qualites
necessary for a Chief Magistrate amidst
the present political complications, viz.:
oractical common sense, unflinching &termina
l:on of purpose, clear discrimination as to men
and measures, and will practice and enforce rigid
e, overtly in every department of the
Government. Because his views of
the qnt stion of Reconstruction are
in harmony with those of Congress, and he will
mete out ujual and exact justice without
reference to condition, color or nationality.
Because he is magnanimous, . and will ad
minister the government on the liberal,
progressive principles of the Republican party.
Because he can place the financial system on a
solid basis, and vitalize our commerce at home
and abroad. Because his election will give
weight to our nationality among the nations,
will settle up the Alabama claims, "and move im
mediately on the works of the enemy." Because
he will seet that our flag Is respected
by all nations. however powerful, and will pro
tect naturalized citizens whenever or wherever
their rights may be assailed or their liberty
abridged. Because Gen. Grant is the first choice
of an overwhelming majority of the people for
the next Chief Magistrate. The formation of
Grant Clubs 'in t very town of the State is
earnestly recommended.
ICLth CongrosAi--Second Session.
f Sh - , , ,cri—Coptlired from Third ytlitlon,J.
On notroi of Mr. Stewart (Nevada), the
Senate took up the bill to relieve the disabilities
of Robert M. Patton, of Alabama.
Mr. Stewart said the petition was signed by
Gen. Swayne and thirty-seven members of the
constitutional Convention, and read a letter
_ -
from Ctn. Pope to Gen. Grant, favoring the re
moval of the disabilities, saying he had rem;ercd
kood aseistanee in carrying out the Iteeonstrne
tion acts. Mr. Stewart stated that the Governor
had been a Union man, but engaged in the -m
-ix-Dion in a civil capacity, and could not take the
Mr. Pomeroy (Kan.) favored the bill, saving
there were many similar eases in the Southotihere
many persons were willing to comply with' the
Eteconstruction acts and ought to be relieved.
Mr. Howard (Mich.) took the same view. 'He
would support the bill because Gov. Patton had
-hown his faith by his walks, and that Congress
a thus increase its friends in the South.
Mr. Drake opposed the bill, on the ground that
the time had not yet come when they could judge.
of the repentance of rebels, nor will it until re
..onstruction is finished.
Mr. Buckalew spoke in opposition to special
legislation of this kind in individual cases. - They
should either repeal the disabling laws, or miti
gate them`if therdo not operate well. Such bills
as the present would operate unjustly in pre
'erring such men as Patton, who was no more
meritorious than many others.
Mr. Johnson said, while he would vote for the
bill, he would prefer a general amnesty law which I
be hoped would not be long deferred. n the
meantime he would vote for such applications.

The Negro Garrison Repulses Then!
sv ith Great Slaughter.
SAN ANTONIO, Texas, January 14, IR6B.—Des
patches just received hero state that a severe In
dian battle was fought at Camp Lancaster, on the
27th of December. Camp Lancaster is two hun
dred and forty miles northwest of this place, on
the Rio Pecos, and is garrisoned by a company
of colored cavalry belonging to the command of
General Batch.
The Indians, about one thousand strong, at
tacked the camp at .1 o'clock P. M., while the
companyawere watering their horses. In the
dash three men were killed, a number wounded,
and thirty horses captured; but the colored sol
diers retreated in good order to the post, where,
getting their Spencer carbines, they furiously
assaulted the savages, driving them into the old
post works near the camp, where the fight lasted
until late in the night. when the Indians gave
way in confusion.
On the night of the 28th the Indians renewed
the attack, but were repulsed with great
slaughter, leaving the ground strewn with bows,
arrows, guns, blaLkets, coats, pistols and
knives, but carrying off all their dead and
During the battle a number of white men were

troops have had with the Indians, and it is not

The negroes fought with a savage desperation
that astonished the red men, who, no doubt,
thought they could easily capture the poet and its
small garrison.
The garrison (Company B, Ninth United States

Freight Teams in our Streets.
To Me Editor of the Evening Bulletin your
excellent editorial' of Saturday on "Cruelty to
Animals," referring to the mule, teams on Market,
Broad and Willow streets, you say : "The rail
road and forwarding companies do not own
these teams, but the business of haulhig is farmed
out to the teamsters and their employers, so that
there is no direct control over them on the pad
of the owners of these teams."
This conveys the impression that the compa
nies are entirely innocent, that they have noth
ing to do with the motive power, and fastens all
odium on the poor,ignorant owners of the teams
and their underlings. To suppose that powerful•
corporations. whose influence and control is felt
in every county of the great State of Pommylva
nia, are utterly powerless to control the acts of a
ect of half-savage team-drivers directly under
their noses, and Indirectly employed by. them in
the transaction of their business, is simply ab
surd and an insult to common sense. Ample
power exists, but no inclination to exercise it.
A case came to my notice, where an officer of
one of those companies (who deny all jurisdic
tion!) stepped out into the street to remonstrate
with a driver, who was whipping his mules be
cause they could not start a train of care. The
precious specimen of, civilization, who did not
know who it was who presumed to interfere with
his favorite exercise, promptly turned on him
with the polite remark, Yon go to h—ll!"
Within thirty minutes thereaftdr, that man was
dismissed by telegraph. Whore was the control
in this instance ?
I fear it will be found that the owners of the
various freight trains in our streets permit (I
will not say encourage) the existence of the
present abominable system of transportation,
hoping thereby to drive public opinion, in sheer
disgust at it, to consent to the use of economical
steam power to do that which id now done at so
frightful an outlay of money and immorality.

A POETICAL ARCIIIIISItor.—The late Metropo
litan of Moscow was, it appears, a poet. When,
nearly forty years ago, the celebrated Pushkin
published some stanzas on the futility of human
aspirations, a reply appeared signed' An Anony
mous Poet." The reply was much read at the
time, and caused a deep sensation; but the secret
of _ha authorship was natidiNigedAttring Itut
author's lifetime. The other day, 40Wever, the
Moscow Gazette reprinted the poeni, and made
known for the first time that it was written by
Archbishop Philarete.
