• The struggle for the Governor's chair of
the old Bay State has been one of concern
to thoughtful men of all patties in widely
separated portions of the country. The
contest posseSsed no little personal interest,
for it was between men of national
tion—between men who may lig justly re :
garded as the best exemplars of two antago
nistic schools of polities. IVhile both can
didates Were of one party, the one repre•
sented that large class of politicians who be
lieve in nothing so much as success—who
arc without sincere convictions, without
faith in public virtue or private integrity,
and without principles Which they do no
hold at less value than the breath of popu
far fayor; while the other stood for tha
smaller class of Men whose political belief
i 4 held unfalteringly twill° end because it is
groumled in their moral convictions. }Yo
believe Ven. Butler to he the best living
specimen of the mere politician—a man of
infinite inefitnl resources, ot" unblushing n
dacity,,ofi Unlimited political ambition and
personal selfishness, and of untiring tenacity
in pushing his own political fortunes. That
he is Personally dishonest in the common
acceptation of the tern' we do not believe,
but that he is without a particle of, political
morality is only too evident. When, a few
years ago, he proposed the repudiation of
he public debt, lie proclaimed at once his
low estimate of the honesty, of the Ameri
can people and his own moral nakedness.—
Happily for the national honor that tempta-,
thin was spurned, Aid unfortunately the'
tempter was not eghttled from all pabliC
office. He was returned Co Congress, where
he fittingly distinguished himself as the
thief advocate and apologist for the Credit
Mobilier ring and the efficient manager of
the back-pay grab.,
That this man, with these political istains
flesh upon his bands, should seek to grasp
the Governorship of IlhissaChuseits e*cites
no special wonder only because lie is known
to be without shame, as he is without politi
cal morality. That he has been ticketed in
that{ attempt is as creditable to the old Conti
monwealth as it is advantageous to the coun
try at large. And the Republicans of Mas
sachusetts are entitled to credit not only for
the defeat of this brilliant bad man, but for
the manner in which they have admlnister
ed their rebuke to men of his dud., Re
publicans everywhere may be justly proud
of the thousand and more delegates 'ho
sembled at Worcester last Wednesday, for
their action was a strong proof of the power
of the party to correct its Own evils and to
drive ?Yom places of trust and honor the
demagogues who naturally flock to the
strongest battalions. Those who believe,
as multitudes of Republicans do, that the
purification of our Polities is to be attained
leithin the Rept►blican party rather than by
trading coalitions with hungry and despd-
rate Democrats will find their faith greatly,
confirmed by the action of tb:it•Convention.l

' lock. At a time when niew silly sensation
dal journals are pratin g of " eivsarism,"
thoughtful men reali4 that it is indeed true
that the fears of-the - early founders Svere
spent in the wrong direction; the peril to
the purity of the Government lies not in
high - ;ambition, but in low, dishonesties; it
comes not from men who think of doing
great things.foiVory, Nit from men who
think of doing mean things for profit." And
not . less true is it that 4 : l thelife of a republican
government is in i ts adm inist ration according
to virtue," and that we initir iilaugurate an
era of "persistent insistence for official sin-
gleness and purity of m j ery inns eOIIIMCICd
with the Government, high orlon•." These
words will round strange to the average pol
itician; but they are words of the highest
political wisdom, as they arc of the sound
est political morality.
That they were not "glittering generali
ties". to the Republicans 'of Massachusetts
is evident from the signal overthrow of the
chief of the demagogues as well as from
, the ilgorous and well-considered platform
which thp Convention put forth
the verVirst resolution of the series
"Raplayy/, That the Republicans of ,Alas•
sachusetts emphatically disapprove of and
uondenin. the action of those members of
the last Congress Republicans and Demo.
crate, who•availed themselves of the occa•
Won of an increase of the salary ot the
President, and of the Judges of the Su
preme Court, and of the members of the
Cabinet, supposed to be just and necessary
for the future, to secure to themselves a dis
proportionate and extravagant compensa
tion for past as well as future services."
=This is admirable, and the next is not less
so. Here it is:
'"Resohid, That while we recognize the
full ,right of every citizen to express and act
upon his convictions upon all questions of
public interest, no person holding public of
fice bas the right to seek to influence the
action of his subordinates by exciting their
fear of loss of place if their opinions and
actions shall differ from his own; and we
call upon'the President to remove all public
officers who have improperly interfered
with the independence of the Republicans
of Massachusetts In the management of
their local concerns, whenever 'the fact is
proved to his Satisfaction."

will be necessary to appropriate double that

News from the Polaris
The Secretary of the Navy received the
following dispatch last Wednesday,:
" U. S. Ship JUNIATA, ?.
Sr. JOHN'S, (N. F.,) Sept. 10, 1873.
" The Hon. George M. Robeson, Secreta
ry of the Navy, Washington :—The Juniata
arrived to-day. Met the Tigress at Upper.
navik and coaled her. She sailed August
11th for Littleton Island. The Tigress met
the Juniata's steam-launch, Lieut. I.)e Long,
oft Tessuisak, who had been to Cape Yoik
in the launch and returned. At Disco met
the Tigress again and coaled her August
25th: Commander. Greer reports the camp
of the Polaris found August 14th off Little

73:40 west. The crew of the Polaris were
all well. Had. gong south two months be

There were no signs. Stopped at all - the

The abeve dispatch was received froth
Commander Braine, of the Juniata. Lit
tleton Island referred to is about sixty miles
north of Northumberland Island, where the
party rescued from the Polaris supposed
they had left her. It is a little south of the
Life Boat Depot of Dr. Kane in 1853. The
probability is that the Tyson party were
mistaken as to the locality.of their—separa

.Another news dispatch from the Juniata,
dated St. John's, N. F., Sept. 10th, says:
' " The Tigress, which we left on the 25th

at Littleton Island the Tigress came upon,
the remains of a camp, and learned that in
June Capt. Buddington and his companions
had abandoned the ship and

structed. The Polaris afterward sank. The
men were all well at - the time of their de

Paying the Piper.
The $15,500,000 awarded the United States
GoVernment by 'the arbitrators at tieneva
was paid into the Treasury last Tuesday by
Secretary Fish in one certifiCate of deposit,
reading as follows:
-Act of March .3d, 1873. It is hereby
certified that fifteen millions five hundred
thousand dollars have been deposited with
the Treasurer of the United States,Lpayable
in gold at hisi office to Drexel, ?organ &
Co., Morton, Bliss & Co., and Jay Cooke &
Co., or their order.

JOHN ALLISON, Iteg'r of Trea'y.
"F. E. SPINNER, Treas'r of U. S.
" WM. A. RICITARDSON, Sec. Tre'y."
The certificate had the figures $15,500,-
000 in the upper right and left , band cor
ners, and was numbered about the center
on each side with the figure 1. The back
of the certificate was indorsed as follows:
..:Pay to the • joint order or H. P. M. Minister as

" Pay to the order of Ron. W. A. Richardson, Sec
retary of the Treastiry.
" ItAmivrox Frou,i Secretary of State."
Upon receiving frond Minister Thornton
and Consul General .Archibald the fifteen
million and a half certificate of deposit and
receipting to them therefor, Secretary Fish,
in company with Assistant Secretary .Davis;
called upon Secretary Richardson, who is
sued a single five per cent. registered, bond
for- the 'whole amount in the Usual form,
with the additional clause: " The United
States of America are indebted to , Hon.
Hamilton Fish, Segretary of State, in trust,
to bo held subject to future disposition of
Congress, as provided by act approVed 3d
March, 1873," etc.
The bond was skillfully printed with a
pen, being--a fij'c-thnik of the printed form,
and is the work , of Mr. E. B. Magroty,
clerk in the loan branch of the Treasury.—
Upon being duly executed' it' was photo
graphed, and then sent to Secretary Fish,
.who is its-present custodian. The certifi
'cote of deposit was of course retained by
the Secretary of the Treasury. when the
bond was issued. It will be framed and
preserved among the archives of the Gov
ernment as a memorial of an amicable set
tlement of difficulties between two coun
tries without a resort to arms.
, In the whole of this important transac
tion with regard to the payment of money
the Secretary of State declined to have any
thhig whateve to do with the bankers em
ployed by thdritish Government, his com
munication ing alone with Sir Edward
Thornton, th' British Minister, and the only
transactions t 43 Sedretary of he Treasury
had with the bankers was to receive their
certificates of 'deposit and issue in lieu there
of one for the whole amount, the bankers
receiving nothing from the Treasury as a
compensation for the negotiation, the ex
pense having been paid by the British Gov
Democratic "hinciples."
The Dembcratic leaders of Ohio early in
the season concocted "a platform" which
has since been adopted, With no material al
teration or addition, in Pennsylvania, Mas
csachusetts; and Maine. It is, on the whole,
a shrewd production. *•
Yet, to a candid man, who fairly under
takes to balance in his mind the - advantages
•iind the disadvantages of allowing the pres
ent Democratic leaders to. gain control of
the Government, the platform is not likely
to amount to much. It is very barren. The
Absence of the usual glitter and .bombast,
creditable as it is; brine out more'clearly
the cynical indifference l to principle and the
cool, dispassionate 'political , selfishness of
the men who at present'guidb the Democra
cy. "The Democratic party" - sags the
platform maker, bowing blandly to his au
(Bence and adjusting his mask, "seeks to
, revive »o . dead issues,;' it "stands by its
principles, which are suited to anilines and
circumstances;" it "supports the Pederal
Government in all constitutional authority."
How polished and smooth these words are:
'But they are fatal, if the hearer stops - to
Why does the Democratic party, seek to
:revive no settled issues? Because its atti
tude on those the people have recently set
at rest was' inexpressibly odious. It not
only would not revive, it. would,gladly bury
forever the memory of its cruel warfare in
defense of the slave power, of its Syrimathy
with the rebel, of its obstimite struggle to
prevent the- enfranchisetnefit Of the freed
men, of its heartless comiEtting with the re
actionary and discontented feeling of the
South; and of - its shameful part in the coa
lition of '72. What does the
' party mean
by supporting " constitutional authority?"
That is What it professed to do when it was
protesting against the war, seeking in break
down Mr. Lincoln's administration, and try
ing to divide the army by means of, the sla
very question. The " principles' it is prat
tling about itwould gladly have forgotten;
-it does not dare to define them; it equally
does not dare to ignore them; it can only
cover them, up with vague generalities and
betake itself to accusations against the Re
publiean party. •

party s seen. There is nothing the Demo- .

Lynch Law in ,Nissonri.
• The St. Louis Democrat seems discouraged
by the outrages committed by vigilante in,
Missouri. It says: "In every, county,,q,
our State we have secret police organize-
Lions controlled by Judge Lynch. We have
been sadly made aware of late that these.
organizations do not at all - fulfill the purpo
ses for which they were instituted.' They
are utterly insufficient to preVent the terri
ble crimes committed in our, vast agricultu
ral districts, and exhibit hdrrible injustice
where they assume to punish crimes. They
hang horse thieves sentenced to the Peni
tentiary, and kill officers of the law taking
these thieves to the Penitentiary . , and at the
same time they permit murderers to' strut
about in public places unmolested, and.rob
hers and thieves to carry out their vocation
in open daylight. - In one word, Judge
Lynch is a failure in every respect, and, a
coward and 'cruel scoundrel besides. -Un
der these circumstances, would it , not be
well for the State to organize.a public State.
police in every township and county of the
State? Such a police would make the mob
organizations, now so shamefully usurping
