TWO aavaDMBta,
Captain Ingalls, of the schooner Chal
. ctdony, baa let slip an opportunity to
aoake a amall fortune, and at the same
time' settle the long vexed duertion as to
the reality of the elusive and possibly
mythical sea serpent. His story as told
in the Argut, of Portland, Maine, June
t, runs as follows:
"Last Saturday, about one o'olook in
the afternoon, we were slowly sailing
past Monhegan, there being but very
little wind, about twenty miles southwest
of the island, when we caught sight of
what looked like a large schooner, bot
tom up. As the object lay almost dead
ahead, we made directly for it, but be
fore we got very close a Cape Ann
schooner lay to and sent a boat crew to
inspect what plainly now appeared to
oe a monstrous carcass 01 some species
or other.' We finally hove to, about a
. ship's length- off and took a leisurely
a. af
survey of the thing. It was dead, and
Aoated on the water with its belly, a
dirty brown color, up. Its head was at
least twenty feet long, and about ten
fset thrOUffh the thickest nnint. Ahnnt
laid way of the body, which was, I should
guess, about foity feet long, were two
fins, of a very clear white, each about
twelve feet in length. The body seemed
to taper from the back of the head down
to the size of a small log, distinct from
the whale tribe, as the end had nothing
that looked like a fluke. The shape of
the creature's head was more like a tierce
than anything I can liken it to. I have
teen almost all kinds o shapes that can
be found in these waters, but never saw
the like of this before.
a wo years ago, on Beguin, 1 saw
shooting through the water a thing
which resembled this creature considera
bly, but I didn't get close enough to say
for certain The men from the Cape
Ana schooner got on this dead creature,
and one of the boys cut a double shuffle
on his belly, which for all the world
looked like the bottom of a schooner
covered with barnacles and scawed by
the weather. We would have towed the
thing to Portland had thore been any
wind, hut as there- wasn't, we steered
way and left it What sort of a sea
monster this was I can't say for sure,
but iu my opinion, it was the original
'sea serpent' which has been seen once
in a while for years past, and which,
when alive, was too swift a swimmer for
any satying vessel to get along side of."
The report of the captain of the
"Cape Ann schooner" will be in order

We invite the attention of our read
ers to the following extract from the
New Yerk Herald, a paper of an - inde
pendent type, which h, however, never
been accusal tf any partial leanines
toward t'ae Democracy. When such a
paper, with Republican affinities, comes
out boldly and squarely, stating that the
charges against Garfield are damaging
unless disproved, and even goes so far
editorially as to invite him to use its
columns and welcome, for that purpose.
The New York Timet, the great leading-
Republican paper of the United States,
speaking of Garfield in .some of his
transactions a few years agu said
"Messrs. Kelly and Garfield present i
very distressing figure. Their partici
pation in rae ureait Bloomer anair is
complicated by the toost unfortunate con
traductions of testimony." .
That was before Garfield was a candi
date for President, and when there was
no special motive in disguising facts.
The New York Tribune says about them:
"Well, the wickedness of all of it is that
these men betrayed the trust of the peo
ple, deceived their constituents, and by
evasions and falsehood confessed the
transaction to be disgraceful." Now, in
the face of such statements as these,
from such sources, does it not require
'sublime cheek" to call these investiga
tions, and charges of fraud, "Democrat
ic infamy V The charges were made by
Republicans, and the verdict rendered
by the same. Now, let us look at the
attitude of our leading political papers
at Portland, the Standard and Oregon
tan. The former has made eight separ
ate and distinct charges against Garfield,
proving them irem the Congrettional
Record and from leading Republican
papers. It has challenged the Oregonian
to "confute even the most inconsiderable
of them," and as yet, that well-informed
journal has ignomimouely ailed! That
carries its own comment:
We hare no doubt that the Republi
cans will discover faults enough in the
ticket chosen at Cincinnati yesterday,
and we may presently try our own hands
at picking it to pieces. But we will con
tent ourselves for the moment with sug
gesting certain general observious bear
ings, upon the country and upon both
parties, of the action of the Democrats.
In the first place, it is an undoubted
and very great benefit to the country
that the nomination of General Hancock
makes impossible what, in the common
political slang is called a. "bloody shirt
campaign." . The Southern question, so
called, has been for years not merely a
sterile, but a mischievous issue in our
politics. It has been assiduously kept
alive by designing leaders in the Republi
can party, not entirely because it was a
convenient way for them to "fire the
Northern hearts" and secure votes by.
alarming the prejudices of the voters,
but quite as much because it enabled the
Republican leaders year after year to put
aside, til real quustions, all needed re
forms, all actions on subjects of general
interests and importance, on the pretext
that it was once more necessary to "save
the country" or to "strike for liberty and
equal rights.
We have no doubt that even now
ejSort ,wil be made to drig the South'
into the convaas, but it will not succeed.
The Democratic candidate ''waiji soldier
of the Union one of - tW most xIoVs,
tincoapromiaing and brilliant generals of
the war for the Union; he is a Northern
with purely Northern ideas; he
fought under General Grant in theblood-
iest and most desperately contested series
of battles in the war; he was always
placed by Grant in the fore-front of the
battle. It would be ridiculous for any
one to pretend to doubt the loyalty to
the Union and to liberty of the general
whose gallant and brilliant conduct in
the Wilderness, at Spottsyl vaniav Cold
Harbor and in all the fierce battles .which
followed, made him 'a trusted efiicer-of
General Grant, and won4- for him the
plaudits of thw-whole country. If any
Republican stump orator shall pretend
that the Government cannot . safely be
trusted to Goners! Hancock, he will sure
ly be laughed at.
Nor can it be said that Hancock would
be a nose of wax in the hands of other
men. He is a man of his own mind. It
will be said, of course, that he is a mili
tary man; but the reply may well be
made that it is surely a good Bign that
Democrats of all sections united cordial-;
ly in his nomination; it is surely a happy
omen that the Southern men, the "rebel
brigadiers," as it is the mean partisan
fashion to call them, were among the
earliest to rally to bis support in the
Convention, thus showing that they are
not at all animated by that hatred of
Union men with which it has been the
custom to charge them. It was the
boast of the third termers that the South
was ready and anxious to rally around
General Grant. Well, they have gathered
very zealously about one ot General
Grant's most distinguished and trusted
lieutenants, and if it was a sign of merit
in them in one case it can scarcely be less
so in the other.
The nomination of General Hancock
is of impotanee to the country, therefore, '
because it perforce eliminates-the- old
sectional issue from our politics, and
places them for the first time in many
years on a broad and national plane. It
enables the country to choose withpu
prejudice, without sectional alarm, and
to ehoose for itself between two lines of
policy clearly marked out, very decidedly
difiereing one from the other, and on
which men may reasonably and sensibly
disagree. The Republican party stands
for centralization, for a larger concentra
tion of power, in the bands of the Feder.
al uovernment, tor wbat is called "pater
nal system," and a considerable part of
the country agrees with them in this view
which is fairly presented by their candi
date. The Democrats stand for decen
tralization, fo.r local self-government, for
a strict limitation of the Federal power
according to the Constitution ; and a con
siderable pai-t of the country agrees with
them. General Hancock's civil record
makes him one of the most distinguished
representatives of this Democratic policy.
His constant deference to civil law and
to civil officer during his military com
mand in Louisiana and Texas after the
war shows that he is much more than a
mere soldier; that he has clear and well
defined views on the most important
points of national policy, views' which
are honorble to him and which-give him
a deserved and high rank among states
men. Between General Garfield and
General Hancock the voters may choose
freely and safely according to their views
of what is the best policy, and with no
fear that the Union or any man's rights
in the country will be endangered by the
election of either.
It is another advantage for the- coun
try that, being Able thus to choose with
out prejudice or alarm, the voters will
be able to consider the bearing of the
two nominations on those material inter
ests of the country which are, after all,
its real interests. It has been widely
felt, for example, even by many Repub
licans, that it is not well to' keep one
party in power too long. It is often
said by thoughtful Republicans that it
would be well for their party if it could
pass into the minority for a season. . But
the Democratio nominations in previous
years have not been such as to inspire
confidence in this independent class of
voters. With the present Democratic
picket this oijection doesnot lie. If any
irdter thjaka it mil for the country to
save a- change of parties he need not
fear to aet upon his thought Every in
terest will be as safe with General Han
cock as with General Garfield; both are
devoted Union soldiers; both are loyal
citizens, both are men incapable of suffer
ing harm to the Republic; in the hands
of either, the honor of the flag, the safe
ty of our: institutions, the rights of all
men in every part of the country will be
safe. It ia a , great happiness for the
country that no demagogue can, in this
canvass, frighten the voters bythe pre
tence f danger to the country or to any
legitimate interest in it, from the success,
of one or the other party. " '

. The plan to furnish Rochester, New
York, with power for manufacturing and
for running street cars through the utili
zation ot the falls of the Genesee in
compressing air, was described some
weeks ago. All the power of the lower
falls, save what is needed to run two
wheels ior factories already in operation
has been purchased by the ih venter of
the system, and a promising beginning
has been made. According to the Roch
ester Union, a large gang ot men are at
work building the crib just below the
falls on the oast side of the river in a
cove which seems to have been made
natural for this purpose. This founda
tion is 100 feet long by 75 feet wide,
and will have an average depth of 13
feet. It Js being constructed of logs of
solid oak timber, bolted together, and
the center will be filled with atone. . On
top of the stone will be erected the der
rick, 125 feet high, and the -water will
pour into it f rem the top of the falls
through the bulkhead at one end of the
dam. . The stand pipes will run from the
top of the derrick to the cylinders on the
crib, which will be in ts neighborhood
of 500 feet long. The whole machinery
will be roofed in. The difficulty in the
way of getting the materials to the place,
they all having to be lowered over the
falls, makes the work of construction
somewhat slow.; It is expected, how-
i ever that the application of the system
to the propulsion of street cars will be
possible in September next Scientific
