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. Personal. 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, Boston, 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. Fisher. Sincerely, J. G. Blaine. "V. Fisher, Jr. iudrin nalpltt a Prisoner. 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 contemporaries: 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 ment made by Mrs. Halpin and backed by affidavits is in Democratic hands, and will shortly la given to the coun try. 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 Portland, was shot according to sen tence. Twelvo men were detailed from 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 ritles wero loaded with ball catridgea and six with blank catridgea Six bul lets pierced the breast of Hamilton and ended the lifo of a murderous, black hearted man. Naws from San Francisco states that the lost bridge across the Sacramento on the California fe Oregon extension road was completed Aug. 16th. In the eirly part of next month the overlond trips to Portland, through the comple tion of the California il Oregon rail way to Delta, will be done ia about two days and a half from San Fran cisco. The fifth bridg", aUut 33 mil from Rxdiling, has bpen comploted, the. grading is finirhrd, and material is en hand for Mm completion of track !y ir.-'.
