We hed last night a ratification meeting at
the Corners wick started out gloriously but
didn't end so happily ez it might. I hed
gone to a good deal uv trouble about it and

The blessid. Deacon, McPelter and Issaker
Gavitt, who expect respectively to hold the
posiehens uv Assessor, Collector, and Whisky
Inspector for this district, came down hand
somely with the funds, enuff to enable me to
dekorate the post offis with flags and trans
parencies, and myself with a pare uv ready

I wuz economikle in my expenditoors, or

ez the populace saw these, and listened to
Captain McPelter, ez he red em to em wuz
overiclowerin. How they cheered ez the
words flasht out into the nite, "Southern
Rites, Southern Men, and a Southern Govern

"Down with the gorilla Linken !" "Jeff

unfurled, ther arose }itch cheers for the nomi

_never heerd before, nor expect to agin.
At this time,jeat ez everything wuz a gittin
Ted-hot,the trouble commenced. Pennibacker,
wich runs our biggest and best distillery,

and perposed three cheers for Seymore and
Greenbax and three groans for the bloated

"Its difficult to say wat he is to-day, but
I'll aware to it he wuz three years ago, but
it makes no difference. I swore four years
ago to lick any man who hurrahed for any

And this infooriated wretch pounced onto
Issaker, and they rolled off the stand to join
Bascom and Pennibacker, who hedn't settled
their onpkasantnis yet.

At this pint the fite became general. Some
uv the people sided with Bascom, some uv
em with Pennibacker, (akkordin ez they
bought whisky by the barl, or by the drink,)
and the balance uv em assisted Bigler and

Democratic Judgmtent or Grant.
(From the N. Y. World. 4prll IL 11365.3
General Grant's history shciuld teach us to dis
criminate better than we Americans are apt. to
do between glitter and solid work. Our prone
neSs to run after sponters and demagogues may
find a wholesome corrective in the study of such
a character as his. The qualities by which great
things are accomplished aro here seen to have no
necessary connection with showy and superficial
accomplishments. When the mass of men look
upon such a character, they may learn a truer
respect for thernsolves and for each other; they
are taught by it that high qualities and great
abilities are consistent with the simplicity of
taste, contempt for parade and plainness of man
ners with which direct and earnest men have
a strong natural sympathy. Ulysses S.
Grant, the tanner, Ulysses B. Grant, the name
ressful applicant for tip post of City Surveyor of
St. Louis, Ulysses S. Grant, the driver into that
city of his two-horse team with a load of wood
to sell, had written in him every manly quality
which will cause the name of Lieut.-Gen. Grant
to live forever in history His career is a lesson
in practical democracy; it is a quiet satire onihe
dandyism, the puppyism and the shallow affecta
tion of our fashionable exquisites, as well as
upon the swagger of our plausible, glib-tongued
demagogues. Not, by any means that great
qualities are inconsistent with cultivated man
ners and a fluent elocution; but that such
superficial, accomplishments aro no measure
of worth or ability. General Grant's last
brilliant campaign sets the final seal upon
his reputation. It stamps him as the
superior of his able antagonist, as well as of all
the commanders who have served with or under
him IMthe great campans of the last year. It
is not necessary to sacrifice any part of their well
earned reputation to his. Sherman and Sheridan
deserve all that has ever been said in their praise;
but there has never been a time since Grant was
made Lieutenant-General, when anybody but
Sherman, on onrside, could have been classed
with him. Since Sherman's bold march through
Georgia, and his capture of Savannah and Char
lene/Ir, there have been many who, in their strong
admiration of his great achiefements, inclined to
rank him as the greater general .of the two.
That Judgment, we take it, is now
reversed by the court of final appeal—not by
dwarfing the reputation of Sherman, which suf
fers no j st abatement4t. by the•expansion
into grader proportions - of that of Grant.
Grant stands pre-eminent among all the generals
who have led our armies in the late war, in that
ho has exhibited the utmost strength of will of
which the highest type of manhood is capable.
The defences of Vicksburg and the defences of
Richmond were both deemed impregnable, and
were defended with a proportionable confidence
and obstinacy; but they both yielded, at last,
to Grant's matchless persistence and un
equalled strategy. If anybody is so ob
tuse or so wrong headed as to see no
thing great in General Grant beyond - his mar
velous tenacity of will, lot that doubter explain,
if he can, how it has happened that, since Grant
rose to high command, this quality has always
been exerted in conspicuous energy precisely at

clear-sighted and a very comprehensive mind
that could always thus have laid the whole em
phasis of an indomitable soul so precisely on the
emphatie place. Apply to Gen. Grant what
test you will ; measure him by the magnitude of
the obstacles he has surmounted, by the value of
the positions he has gained, by the frame of the
antagonist over whom he has triumphed, by the
achievements of his most illustrious co-workers,
by the sureness with which he directs his in
domitable energy to the vital point - which is the
key of a vast field of operations, or by that
supreme teat of consummate ability, the absolute
completeness of his results and he vindicates his
claim to stand next after. Napoleon and Welling

Grant and Butler.
Gen. Butler addressed the citizens of Glou
cester, MUM, Saturday evening, on political mat
te s. The results of the legislation of the first ses
sion of the 40th Congress were reviewed at length,
and the platforms of the respective parties corn
p., red, the speaker closing with matters of a per
sonal character. He said :
My enemies, your enemies, and the enemies of
the country, as a means of sowing dissensions
in the Republican ranks, have told you that,
b( cause of personal differences upon military
qtu stions heretofore existing between the Gen
eral of the Army, whom you selected as your
candidate for President, and myself, that I should
wcrve from the path of loyalty to the country
which I had marked out for myself at the be
ginning of this contest seven years ago,
and refuse to support that party in
the coming election, or at least one of its nomi
nees. These slanderers mistake their
shall go as I begun. When the first hostile gun
was fired at the flag of the Union in '6l, I
marched among the earliest at the head of the
men of Essex and Massachusetts for the sup
pression of the rebellion, and until the country
is restored to that peace and prosperous tran
quillity which it is her destiny to enjoy, I shall
bull march on with the men of Essex and Massa
chusetts fighting the enemies of my country
whenever and wherever found.
"Not content, however, with their slanders,
finding that I had never wavered in my support
of the principles of the Republican party, they
next maligned both General Grant and myself by
asserting that to achieve some supposed personal
advantage to each, an improper and unworthy
agreement as to personal difficulties, some bar
gain such as they would have made had they
been in our places, had been patched up between
us, alike disgraceful to us both.
"I take pleasure in declaring to you, fellow
citizens, as well in behalf of General Grant us
myself, that nothing of the kind has taken place.
A difference in social life, merely, arising from
misunderstanding, has been the subject of mutual
satisfactory explanation. No more, nor less. I
EL all advocate the election of General Grant as
the man selected by my.party, whose patriotism,
energy and success at the head of the armies of
the l lilted States, in destroying the rebellion in
arms, give satisfactory assurance that he will bo
able, at the head of the government, to crush this
new phase of the rebellion as applied to civil life;
and his administration, devoted to such patriotic
work,shall have the same cordial and hearty sup
port horn me that it would have were he my
dearest personal friend.
"Another of the many-headed rumors circulated
to injure me in your good opinion, fellow-citi
zens, is that in the event of General Grant's being
elected to the administration of the government,
as I have no single doubt ho will be, your repre
sentative will not receive that just and proper
recognition from the administration which be
longs to his position in the Republican party.
Of that I have neither doubt nor fear. I shall
receive from a Republican administration all and
more than all that distinction I may personally
deserve, and all that consideration which should
be accorded to your representative if I shall be
so fortunate as to be so greatly honored by your

—At a Seymour and Blair ratification meeting
at, Atlanta, ;Georgia, one of the speakers de
nounced the constitutional amendment as "pre
pared" principally for the purpose of keeping
out of office such gentlemen and true patriots as
Howell Cobb, A. H. Stephens, Robert Toombs,
B. H. Hill, John C. Breckinridge, and Jefferson
Davis! As the speaker named each of the patri
ots in the above list there was a storm of cheers ;
but when he mentioned the name of Jeff Davis
the hall was at once the scene of a wild and tu
multuous uproar. Both delegates and spectators
jumped to their feet as if in excitement uncon
trollable. Hats and handkerchiefs were waved
and shaken fiercely above their heads and yells
and shouts 'and cheers and wild stamping for the
space of several minutes shook the hall. It was
the "old rebel yell."

TLEMEN: I have just had the honor to receive
your letter of July 14, in which yon request me
to name an occasion upon which I could meet
yourselves and such others of our fellow-citizens
as might be inclined to greet me after my long
absence. I find it difficult to say in adequate
language how deeply I am touched by this un
expected and cordial letter of welcome.
No manifestation of regard has ever grati
fied me so much as this which
I now receive from so large a number of ray fel
low-dtfie.ns,men whose names are most honored
in our Commonwealth, and many of whom I am
proud to count among my familiar and personal
mends. I assure you that the letter one the sig
natures which it bears will always be treasured
by me among my most valuable possessions; and
it is because I- so fully- appreciate-your kind ex
pressions of esteem that •trust you will not mis-
in erpre my mo ives nor in tme n any • egret)
- wanting in sensibility to your very flattering pro
position if I ask leave to decline the honor of a
public reception. The warm expression of
your wishes in this respect is a suffi
cient gratification to me, and I cannot
but feel that too long a period has
elapsed, owing to accidental circumstances, be
tween the abrupt conclusion of my term of public
service and my return to Boston, to permit my
giving you any recent details of political affairs
at my late place of dirty, It will be my good
fortune, I trust, to meet every one of those
esteemed friends and fellow-citizens who have
signed the letter, and to exchange with them the
friendly greetings, without any formality, which
are so grateful to one who has been so long
absent from his country. Seven years have
passed since I left the United States, and I
hardly think it extravagant to say that they
have been more important than any other
seven years in the annals of our race. The stride
which has been taken by the Republic in its on
ward and upward progress during thoSe event
ful years is without precedent or parallel. De
mocracy has been upon its trial, and irrevocably
has the Anierican people vindicated the right
and the capacity of the people to govern itself.
Self-government might have perished from the
earth s had the great republic fallen in its strug
gle with oligarchy, had our faith in the demo
cratic principle faltered during the awful con
flict to which we were doomed by the inexorable
logic of history. Perhaps you will not think it
out of place for me to say on this occasion
that in the country where I have so long been
officially residing, it was never my lot
to hear or to read any expressions of un
friendly feeling towards our country. Every
manifestation was courteous, kindly and sincere,
the Imperial Government throughout the war
maintaining its amicable relations unimpaired
with the Government of the United States. There
are many clouds hanging over the present and
he future of that ancient empire, but there is
light breaking above them, and no man that
has hopes of human progress bat must wish
God-speed to the efforts of the administration of
the present sovereign to advance the cause of
constitutional freedom and the emancipation of
the people from civil and sacerdotal thraldom. I
have written more than I intended, it may be
more than I ought, but it was impossible for me
not to respond with the utmost sympathy to
your congratulations on the abolition of slavery
and the successful issue of the civil war.
I am, gentlemen,
With sincere respect and regard,
Your friend and obedient servant,

Mr. Jefferson Davis and family, as we are in

there for the purpose of engaging in business, it
may be proper for us to state that while he goes
abroad mainly for his health, and for that recrea

seven years especially makes needful to him, he

series of his wonderful imitations, at Congress

earnest solicitations of a large number of our
citizens who are visiting Cape May, and who ap

contrives to crowd the hall whenever he appears.

Railway companies have . comp'lained of being
robbed by their conductors, and various plans
have been !suggested to check the evil. A Phila
delphia artist, who has studied the subject in its
different phases, has hit noon a plan which
seems to be the most feasible ono yet brought
forward. The conductor is to carry a small box,
constructed in a peculiar manner, and which will
be more of an ornament than an ineumbrance.
When a passenger gets into the car the conduc
tor waits upon him, takes his fare and furnishes
him with a check which ho (the passenger) de
posits in the box. The number of checks in the
box at the time the return is Made will,of course,
represent the amount of money received by the
conductor. This plan could be carried out with
little or no inconvenience to either the conduc
tors or passengers, and is worthy of the consid
eration of the ra ilway companies. A:patent has
been applied for by the inventor. The same
gentleman made another design to accomplish
the same object. This was to fasten boxes over
each of the windows and allow the passengers to
deposit their checks when taking their seats.
This idea was not considered as perfect as the
other, which was finally adopted by the inventor
when applying for a patent.
A NOVEL PROCESSION.—The Gambrinus Bene
ficinl Atsociation, composed of the employes of
the various lager beer breweries in the city, have
a picnic at Washington Retreat to-day. Pre
vious to starting for the scene of enjoyment, this
morning, the society made a parade through
the streets of the city. The procession
was very neatly formed, and as it was
somewhat of a novelty it attracted great
attention. The marshals, mounted, led
off, and were followed by a cavalcade, at the
head of which rode Ki ng Gambrinus, carrying
a large mug of beer. Then came the wagons
belonging to the different breweries. These were
all decorated with evergreen, arranged in such
a manner as to represent a pleasant grove. The
first wagon was occupied by a band of
music, another was filled with young ladies
and another by small boys. The
others were occupied by the men from the brew
eries. They were dressed in the same style as
when at work, and presented a neat appearance.
On some of the wagons were handsome banners,.
and others had representations of huge lager beer
kegs. All lied some different decoration, so as to
make the procession morn attractive.
