My Dear Mr. Fisher I thank
you for tho article) from Mr. Lewis,
it is good in itself and will do good.
Ho writes like a niun of intflligcnco
and cotnprohpntjion. Your offer to
admit mo to a participation in the new
railroad enterprise in in every reapvet
a, generous as I could expert or desire.
I thank you very sinoi rely for it, and
in this connection I wixh to make a sug
Ration of a Romeuhnt selfish character.
You spoko of Mr. Caldwell disponing
of a tdiarn of Im interest to me. If he
really designs to do ho, I wish ho would
mako (ho proposition di linite, so that I
would know just what to depend on.
Perhaps if he waits until tho full devel
opment of the enterprise, ho might
grow reluctant topartwithhiaslnrejand
1 do not feci that I shall prove a dead
head in the enterprise if I emWk in
it. I see various channels in which I
know I can he useful. Very hastily
and sincerely, your friend,
J. O. Dlaixk.
Mr. Fish eh, India street, lloston.
Augusta, July 2, 1808.
My Dear Mr. Firmer. You ask
me if I am satisfied with the ofTer you
made of a share in your new railroad
enterprise. Of courso, I ap more than
satisfied with thn terms of the oiler. I
think it a most liheral proposition If
I hesitated at iU, it is from consider
tion in noway connected wiih the char
acter of tho oiler. Your libera! mode
of dealin; with me in all our business
transactions of the past eight years, has
not passed without my full apprecia
tion. What I wrote you on tho 29th
was intended to bring Caldwell to a
dftlnite proposition, that wusall. I go
to Huston by the same train that car
ries this, and will call at your oflie to
morrow at 12 in. If you don't happen
to tin in no matter. Don't put your
self to any trouble about it. Yours,
J. G. 15.
W. FisiiKn, Jr.
My Dear Sir. I spoke to you a
short timo ago about a point of inter
est to your railroad compav.y that had
occurred at the last session of Con
gross. It was on the last night of the
session when tho bill renewing the land
grunt to the Statu of Arkansas for the
Little Itock road was reached, and
Julian of Indiana, chairman of the pub
lic lunds committee, and by right en
titled to the floor, attempted to put up
on the bill, as an amendment, the Fre
mont El Paso scheme a scheme pro
bably will known to Mr. Caldwell.
Tho Houso was thin, and tho Fremcnt
interest had the thing all set up, and
Julian's amendment was likely to pre
vail if brought to a vote. Hoots and
the other members from Arkansas,
who were doing their best for their
own bill (to which their seemed to bo
no objection), wero in no despair, for it
was well known that the Senate was
hostile to the Fremont scheme, and if
the Arkansas bill had gone back to the
Senate with Julian's amendment, the
whole thing would have gone to the
table and slept the sleep of death. In
this dilemma Hoots came to me to know
what on earth Im could do under the
rules, for he said it was vital to his
constituents that the bill should pass.
I told him that Julians amendment
was entirely out of order, because not
germane; but ho had not Buflicient con
fidence in his knowledge to make the
point, but he said Gen. Logan was op
posed to tho Freinon: scheme and would
probably make the point. I sent my
page to (Jen. Logan with the sugges
tion, and he at once made the point
1 could not no otherwise than sustain
it, and Bo the bill was freed from the
mischevirus amendment moved by
Julian, and at once passed without oh
jection. At that time 1 had never een
Mr. Coldwell.but yoa can tell him that,
without knowing it, I did him a great
favor. Sincerely yours,
J. G. Blaine.
W. Fibiier, Jr.,Esq., 24 India street,
Augusta, Oct. 4, 18C9.
My Dear Mr. Fib u eh. Find on
closed contracts to parties named in my
letter yesterday, ihe remaining con
tracts will be completed as rapidly as
possible, as circumstances wnl permit
I inclose you part of the Congressional
Globe of April 9th,containing the point
to which I referred at some length in
my previous letter of to-day. You will
find it of interest to read it over and
see what a narrow escape your bill had
on the last night of tho session. Of
course it was my plain duty to make
the ruling when the point was once
raised. If the Arkansas men had not,
however, happened to come to m when
at their wits end in despair the bill
would undoubtedly have Wn lost or
t lecat postponed for a year. I
thought the point would intenst 1pth
you and Caldwell, though occuring b
foro either of you engaged in the enter
prise. I beg you to understand that I
thoroughly appreciate the courtesy with
which you have treatrd me in this rail
road matter, but your conduct toward
me in business matters has always been
marked by unbounded liberality in past
years, and of course I havo naturally
come to expect the same of you now.
You urge me to make as much as I
fairly can out of the arrangement into
which we have entered. It is natural
that I should do my utmost to this end.
I am Whored by only one thing, and
that is the indefinite arrangement with
Mr. Caldwell. I am anxious to acquire
the interest he has promised rue, but I
Ho not get a definite understanding
with him as I have with you. I shall
be in Boston in a few days and shall
then have an opportunity to talk mat
ters over fully with you. I am dis
posed to think that whatever I do with
Mr. Caldwell must really be done
through you. Kind regards to Mrs.
J. G. Blaine.

The following is a New York dis
patch to the Chicago papers, which has
failed to reach Oregon by the "impar
tial" and "reliable" Associated Press,
or by the specials to our Republican
New York, Aug 11. The Star this
morning is authority for the statement
that Maria Halpin is in that city, a
prisoner in the hands of defectives
employed by the Republican State
Committee. She is said to he held to
prevent the publication of the state
ments and ahidavits refuting the scan
dalous statement of the, man Ball, the
reverend agent of the Republicans in
the propagat ion of tho scandal regard
ing Gov. Cleveland. Notwithstanding
she is a prisoner, it is loarned from a
well-informed source that the state

by affidavits is in Democratic hands,

Tell tho Truth.
Boston Poat, August 1.
"Tell the truth," was the reply that
G rover Cleveland telegraphed to an in
timate friend who sent to him for
adyico as to what action should be
taken in regard to the "woman scrape"
scandal. Had Blaine been tho accused
he probably would have telegraphed:
"See parties at once. Rhinoceros de
posited." Grover Cleveland's prompt
reply gives a clue to his character and
suggests some of the reasons of his
pnpulailty among men of sterling
worth in all the walks of life tnd in
both the great political parties.
''He flat Taken Bribes."
N. Y. Tribune, June 2, 1872.
The startling exposure of Speaker
Blaine's venality in connection ' with
the Union PaciGo road, Eastern Di
vision, entirely destroys, of course,
whatever credit some people may have
given to his evasive donial of the
Oukes Ames bribery, and puts the
whole case of the Credit Mobilier upon
a different basis. Now it ia
shown that Speaker Blaine never de
served his good reputation. lie had
taken brilies in another case.
A dispatch received from the City of
Mexico states that Chas Hamilton, who
was implicated in the murder of J. N.
Brow n at Currio Bradley's lagnio in

the company to which the soldier mur
dered by Hamilton belonged, to act as
executioners. He died game, seating
himself on his coffin and refusing to
have his eyes bandaged. Six of the
