Washington, D. C.j June 5, 1876
IIot weather has commenced in good ear
nest and if w are to judge by the past what
to expect in the future we may make up our
minds either to be melted or burnt iuto cin
dors in July and August, they having eeer
been considered io this locality the hottest
mobiLs ot the year. It is a remarkable fact
that notwithstanding our broad aud aliv
streets and elevated location, the mercury
has indicated by several decrees a warmer
temperature here than it has ever doue Bt
This is decoration day for those who fell
ia obedience to a sense of right "on the oth
er side," and a pleasing feuture in the ob
servance of the occasion is the presence of
quite a large number of Massachusetts sol
diers who have courteously proQured their
services to assist io decorating the graves of
the Confederate deod at Arlington. There
will be no speech, only religious services and
decoration of the graves.
The prominent topio of conversation is
the bluine investigation, and us the case now
stands it has cast a stuio upon Mr. lilaine's
hitherto unblemished reputation as a high
minded and bouorable gentleman. What
the result of the investigation may be time
alone can determine. The present status of
the case is this : Two gentlemen, Messrs.
Fisher and Mulligan, the latter at present
treasurer of the Globe Theatre, Bostuu. hav
ing been summoned before the Committee
on the Judiciary, now investigating Mr
Blaine's connection with the Fort Smith Si
Little Rock railroad bond nutter, had in
their possession some fifteen letters of Mr
Bluiue's to Mr. Fisher, who was at the time
they were written the pioprietor of a Urge
sugar refinery in Boston, Mulligun being his
chief bookkeeper, and having with Fisher's
consent the letters in his possession These
letters, it seems, if exposed, would be very
duinaging to Blaine, not only iu relation to
the mutter now under iuvestigutiou, but
bearing very unfavorably in reference to the
Spencer rifle contract. Mr. Blaine hearing
that these gentlemen wereiu towu called up
on them at the Rigs House, where ffany
were staying, aud alter some informal con
versation asked for the letters. Mulligan
said be would permit Mr. Blaine to reuil
them if he would promise to return them to
bun immediately This Blaine promised,
and ufter having read them be urged'Mulli
guu to permit hm to retain them. Using ev
ery argument he could think of. This Mul
ligau posMvcly refused. Blaine then ask
ed to be permuted to read the let tert again,
and huving got thorn into his possession re
fused to give tbem ut. Mulligan reported
the facts to the committee, and on its assem
bling yesterday morning Mr, Hunton, the
chuirmau, rennwed the request that the li
ters taken from the witness Mulligan be pro
duced. Bluine replied that when first asked
by the committee to produce the letters he
had said before doing so be would consult
counsel, and in fulfillment of tbut promise hn
had consulted Messrs. Jere Black aud Mutt.
H. Carpenter, who bad advised him not to
produce the letters, on the ground that to
compel hi in to do so would be un;usl ami
tyrunical. They also hold ufter reading the
letters (Gfteen in number) ihut they huve no
relevancy to the question at issue. Alter
Blaine had tefused to produce the letters
Mulligan was questioned concerning that
one in which be says Blaine acknowledged
the $64,000 transaction. He proceeded to
tell all he knew about it.
Mr. Kerr has received a friendly letter
from B. F. Butler, baying that not a decent
man, woman or child in the United States
believes one word of the charges against him

it to the least to annoy him. He character
izes it as an infamous conspiracy, and the

TUB ELECTION-ITS LESSON,
From the Mercury.
The election just past, as well as
the two preceding ones, aro fruitful
in lessons which the Doruoeracy of
this State will do well to heed for
their guidance in tho futuro. The
lesson taught is the importance ot
adhering to the party organization
and the danger of going outside ot
that organization and entering new
ones for the purpose of effecting a
reformation in the administration of
governmental affairs. For two or
three years past the telegraph and
the public press all over the land has
been teeming with revolutions of tlie
malfeasance of Radical officials, until
the public sense of justice has become
dulled and the p iblio stomach has
become nauseated and its conscience
hardened to such an extent that ras
calities which a few years ago would
have aroused universal indignation,
now pali on the public sense. This
state of affairs caused the conserva
tive element of the Republican party
to make an effort at reform. Thi-ir
political prejudices prevented them
from giving in their adhesion to the
Democratic party in its endeavors to
accomplish the same ends ; but they
must needs organize a new pa. ty and
raise a cry for reform, charzing fraud
and corruption against all political
parties. This had the effect to draw
off unthinking and well meaning Dem
ocrats from their owu organization
and eaus-ed them to give in their ad
hesion to the new party movement.
The effects of this movement upon
the two old parties, in this Slate, has
been marked and important. In
1871 the movement was partially
successful and the inroad it made
Oon ib Republican and DemcK-ratie
Darli'-H a a uat eiiua'u Dal in ih-
olppt'nn J -i -t ri.r.!t a inai's.eil rhan've
has taken place. Tho. uew party
- t. t
marked than before. It has resulted
in defeating and disrupting the Dem
ocratio party in many of the Demo
cratio counties, while those which
were Republican before, are Republi
can still. In Jackson, Josephine,
Douglas, Lane, Benton, and Polk,
nitnerto classed as Uemocratic coun
ties, tho Radicals have in whole or in
part been successful, leaving tho Dem
ocrats defeated and demoralized. This
indicates that the Republican reform
element has gone back on the new
party movement and gravitated back
into.their old party affiliations ajain.
This action on their part has boon
brought about, partially by their
strong political prejudices and par
tially from that deadened sense of
the public conscience caused by its
lanuiiarity with tho prevailing cor
ruptions existing among the high ofH
rials of tho Radical party. TlU'se
lessons should be heeded by Demo
crats in the future and serve to guide
their acts to a closer adherence to
their own party organization. The
fatal defect, to Democrats, in tho
new party movement is that it was
started and carried out by its origina
tors for the purposo of forming a
new Republican party. Failing in
which, the originators have fallen
back iuto the old party lines again,
leaving their Democratic adherents
in tho lurch. In their misguided ef
forts to effect reform they "took to
the woods" only to find themselves
deserted and betrayed by their false
J, here is but one possible way in
which reforms can be effected, and
that is through a united Democratic
party. Another important election
is rabidly approaching; at which
time a Congressman from this State
is to be elected and a candidate for
Preside! tpf tho United States voted
for. In view of the important bear
ing the action of this State may have
upon the political attairs ot the Na
tion, it behooves every Democrat in
tho State to work consistently lor his
party. All personal jealousies and
bickerings should be laid asido and
each individual assist, so far as he
may be able, in the thorough organi
zation of his party. Let no false
beacons or special pleadings allure
you from the organization of your
owu party. Remember tho lessons of
the past Let the experience gamed
by them inlltience your political ac
tion in the future I

It seems that Custer's greatest sin
is not his evidence showing that ho
made known the traffic in post trader
snip to the government four years
ago. That to bo sure was bad
enough, and his making known the
faot alter Belknap's detection was
worsot His exposure ol the politico-
military scoundrel Meirill was also a
sin in the eyes ot all good Kepntili
cans; but in his last number of "War
Memoirs" in the Galaxy" ho has done
the unutterable thing, lie has delib
erately gone to work and praised
General McClellan for the organiza
tion and discipline ot the army of the
Potomac, and furthermore stated it
as his opinion that McClellan was a
soldier "whose mo ual abilities were
of a higher order, aud whose military
qualifications and knowledge were su
perior to those possessed by any ofh
cer who subsequently led the army of
the Potoraao to battle.
Taking into account that Grant
was one of those who subsequently
led that army to battle, it is plain
that Custer considers the man who
emerged Irorn the war as its hero, in
ferior to him who has been held up
as its great military tailure. His
opinion on that piut will not be
deemed so singular aa it would have
been several years ago. People are
beuiumug to take a comprehensive
view of the evenn of the war, and
Grant's campaign against Richmond,
will his immense force, bis absolute
power, and the hearty co operation ot
the administration, though finally suc
cessful, will hardly stand comparison
with McClellan's campaign iu 18G2.
Custer says that although McClellan
lacked experience in large commands,
which those who followed him pos
sessed, yet he was so nobly endowed
by nature and education as a leader,
that be would have put down the re
bellion without difficulty, if nothing
had opposed him but the Coolederate
armies in front. Speaking on his
honor as a leader the writer bluntly
adds - - - -
"The defeat of McClellan was not
the result of combinations made
either in the Confederate capital or in
the camp ot the Confederate army,
but in Washington. It was the re
salt of an opposition whose birth and
outgrowth could be traced to the de
nominating spirits who, at lime, were
largely in control of the Federal
GovernraenL It was not the open
onuosition of cnemiea in his front,
bnt the half hidden interference of
in Lis rer. that succeeded in
1 marring the complete success of Mo-
movement nas resulted in almost a
total failure, but its effects are no less
General Custer gives instances
from his own experience to prove the
truth of this statement, and in recall
ing tho intrigues of that time many
will be inclined to put faith in his
facts and the inferences he draws
from thorn. It is stranco at this day
to hear one ot the popular soldiors of
tne war re echo so clearly the bittor
charge which McClellan himself made
from Savage's Stition fourteen years
ago, to Stanton : "If I save this aimy
now, I tell you plainly that I owe no
thanks to you, or to any other per
sons in Washington. You have dono
your best to sacrifice this array."
Alter we have attained success wo
aro apt to be content with tho grand
result. - and seldom stop to reckon
what it has cost us,' or whether it
might not have been attained by
wiser aud cheapor methods. There
wore many crimes and errors commit
ted in tho couduol of tho war, but at
a lime when tho peoplo aro suffering
from its financial burdens, and begin
to realize that tho departmout of the
Government which was thought to
have been most ably conducted
adopted a policy which threatens us
with ruin, Lusters assertion that
things might have been better if Mo
Clellan had not been overthrown,
will be read with keen intorest.
"Equally well satisfied am I that ho
could have suppressed the rebellion,
restored peace to tne country and
brought back the seceding States in
such lime and manner as would have
shortened the struggle, saved to the
country, both north and south, the
blood ot thousands of its best and
bravest citizens, 'and spared the na
tion a largo, if not tho greater por
tion of tho heavy debt now borne as
one ot the inheritances of the war."
But it McClellan had succcooded in
putting down tho rebellion he would
have been elected 1 resident, as his
enemies well knew, and the Republi
can party would have gone to de
struction, and wo should have no
carpet baggers, no Credit Mobilior,
