Chicago, January 10,ISfll To the Editor of the Chicago Tribune: Your Boston correspondent has, either through Ignorance or wilful falsehood, so grossly misrepresented the late difficulty In-, the High School In Worcester, Mass-, that It is but justice to the (principal, a former i teacher at the West, and who has many friends In the West, to state the facts. In the first place, "Revere” states the dif ficulty to "be similar to the Cambridge wblpplnc On the contrary. It la as totally unlike It as possible, as In Worces ter there has not been a single case of pun ishment of any kind, either boy or girl, since the present Principal took charge of the school. Again he represents the difficulty to be be tween the scholars and Principal, which Is totally false, as Is shown by the fact that no scholar has beta withdrawn on account of the difficulty, and by an almost unanimous rote of the scholars to intrust the entire management of their annual re-gathering to the Principal, and to request all unwilling i to do so, to remain away, showing that the pleasantest feelings exist between the Princi pal and scholars. . Again he says: "It was the result of the Principal being a disciple of the old sys tem,” &c. On the contrary, the Principal Is well known In Massachusetts to be an advo cate of the new evslem Introduced into the Boston schools within the last year. The whole difficulty was simply that an old maid teacher, not being petted as much as she thought she ongbt to be, obstructed the Principal’s government, and, after long forbearance with her, on her refusing to com- Sly with some simple requisitions, the School oard, by adecldcd vole, proptly dUmUsed her. Some of her relations, thinking to make political capital, got up a meeting in tended io rebnke the committee, but the peo ple, at the meeting, on hearing the facts, chanced It Into one of hearty endorsement, as was shown by the election on the following Monday, when six of the eight new members elect of the Board *cre found to approve the action of the Principal, and the other two are certainly not hostile to him. This Is the whole In a nnt shell. Revere saysr " so the straggle goes on.” The people of Worcester are not aware of any such strug gle now going on.

This rail fence, In time, cave place to one of more pretending look and a more effective barrier to the incursions of the cattle accustomed to disport themsc’vcs within. In 1306 this fence was alto taken down, giving place to a sub stantial Iron railing, tne erection of which was quite an event at the time. Prior to the first cndoslng of the spare a portion of the northeast cod had been used as a burying ground for negroes, b*-nd and free, as It was then a desolate spot, such only as could be devoted to the burial uses of tbo then proscribed race.

THE NIAGARA SHIP CANAL. A n Argument Against tlie Proposed Im provement—A Question of Monopoly —General Dlrney In Explanation of the morris convention. Mourns, 111., January 151 To the Editor of the Chicago Tribune: Tour article headed 11 Niagara Ship Canal ” presents with force and plausibility the arguments In favor of the bill now pend* log before the United States Senate. Ton would regard th| defeat of that bill, yon say, “as a national calamity and as post poning Indefinitely, If not forever, any hope of a free canal ajonnd the Falls of Niagara.'* On the other band, the Morris Convention of anll-monopollsts request the Senate to re* Jeet the bill. Here is a clear Issue made up belw een tlie friends of a free Niagara Ship Canal. Yoar vigorous attack on the Morris resolution, end reference to trie, as chairman of the committee that re* ported It, ■will excuse my coming forward In explanation and defence o.' the request to reject. As to the last clause of the resolution, beginning with the words “ or. In case of Its adoption," It was added as an amendment. I neither reported nor voted for It, and do not propose to defend It. The reason assigned by the Convention for its request is, that the hill "creates a monopoly on one of the national highways of commerce." The fact alleged you do not deny; the hUI docs create a monopoly. How, then, could an anti-monopolist Con vention sustain it ? Tour reasons for advo cating this monopoly may satisfy you, may, indeed, be sound ; but, holding such views, you could not, with propriety or consistency, have taken a scat In a Convention assembled under a call addressed to anti-monopo lists exclusively. And the'-sham cen sure von address to us would nave bcenlog ical, if it had becu because of the principles we profess and not because we denounce a pirllcular monopoly. The resolution of the Morris Convention is consistent not only with its avowed prin ciples, but with the action of similar Con ventions. There has been a singular nnanlm- Ity in the demands of the friends of the Niagara tsbip Canal that that national work should be constructed by the National Gov ernment. Indeed, it Is surprising that the cdrporatioo-mongers have never been able to get up any apncarance of public senti ment to sustain tb'c action of their friends in Congress, who have devised a bill to suit railroad attorneys and tfaclr clients, but no body else. The resolution passed by the Detroit Commercial Convention of 1565, composed of delegates from nearly all the Boards of Trade In the loyal States, Javor the completion of the canal “by the^ General Governmentand the same view' was generally taken by the numerous Con ventions on the subject, held In all parts of the United States, in the autumn of 1805 and the following winter. So far os my memory serves me. there was but one exception to the prevailing opinion that Congress should make an open thoroughfare for-navigation between Lakes Eric and the principle of the ordinance of 1757, which provides that “the navigable waters leading into the Mississippi and St. Lawrence shall be common highways and forever free * * * without tax. Impost or duty.*’ The exception I refer to was a concession by a single Convention that tolls enough : might be collected to keep the wogks in re pair. This was probably made because the Portland Canal, at Louisville, the only one owned by the National Government, is managed on that principle, and It seemed fair that botb canals should be managed alike. In the light of the facts cited, the request to reject, made by the Morris Convention, Is but tbc simple application to the pending , bill of the principles always heretofore as* 1 sorted bv.the friends of the ship canal. To have acted In the contrary sense woujjl have I been an unpardonable weakness, and might have been regarded as treachery by many i men whose respect is worth retaining; while It would have gratified none but railroad i corporations andlhclr attorneys. Congress I men who make It a good business to vole for., charters, and the friends of the Erie and Wcl* | land Canals, and ccrtMu other competing ca nals, still on paper and likely to remain I there, unless the Niagara Ship Canal can he 1 hardened with heavy tolls by putting It iuto I the hands of a monopoly. That the Morris Convention does not stand | alone In its view of the hill beforo the Bun* | ate Is evident flora the opinions expressed i by Senators In the debate of July last. Son- I star Sherman, of Ohio, whoso constituents , ere deeply interested In the construction of I the ship canal, and who la himself Us earnest, friend, said: ! **llol tL»qnr«tloo with me Is whether wc should comtnmcoii-r ennitsncUon of that work by giving I to a e. rpnratlon of citizens, over wbom«n»boll have no control, who will only he controlled by i thdrotvQ interest*, a monopoly of tnU work.

Senator Vcssendcu said: "1 bare been opposed always to pnttlng ns ■lonal woiLs Info lie hands of corporations; mid flnce the vote ws* taken on that anbloct, my ob jection has lx en groMng stronger and stronger, every day, for u is gtlilug to be the case under the legislation of Coi.grcsa, in my judgment, Mat the country Is to bf controlled by strut corpora rions, and car legislation Is to Decontrolled by (hem, so that wo are no longer really to bare any power left In relation to such subjects," Senator Grimes, of lowa, said : •• Believing that we can do the work onrsolves and coub of It for ourselves and os we see fit, I am wholly unwilling that Congress ehonld devolve thu power npon a private cor* poratlon. authorize them to go within the State of New York to construct a canal, and, when It is constrnc'ed, to enjoy tbc benefit of all tbe immense water power that will be created, and establish just such lolls as ihey may see fit fop tbc transportation of agricultural and mechani cal productions through that canal. This is the gretL objection that I have to the bill. If we have xhe power, let us do rt onrsclvcs. Whv do we wantute interposition of acompany? * * * Bet tt strikes my mind (hat this is one of the grandest privileges, and will result In being one of tbe most tremendous monopolies that ever was devised npon this continent. * * * I am not disposed to pot tbc agricultural interests of my section of the country into the keeping of any such corporation as Is proposed to be created br this bill. • • * -*Wb have various outlets now to tbc East, and wehavqbeeu looking with longing eyes to a piece of unoccupied ground, where we have been ln,the hope that there would be a national work that would not be within the control of a private corporation.

This ts putting It beyond our power to have any free communica tion between tbc Atlantic and the lakes." Senator Stewart said: “ily own opinion is that the work should be contracted by the Government lleclt” These quotations arc enough to show that there are-men la Congress „ who have not betrayed the North* west through weakness or a worse motive, and who faithfully represent its wishes as expressed by its public Convcn* tions. ‘Would Übe hither honorable or wise for tbe Northwest to lorsako them while lu the breach and follow the lead of others who haye cither betrayed It to corporations, tram pled with sovereign disdain upon Us wishes, or yielded to Us enemies through weakness or corruption? There Is one objection to placing this great route of commerce In tbe binds of a private corporation which, in consistency, should have been insisted npon by the Tribune. T refer to the Imminent danger that the corpo • ration would either combine with the New York Central Railroad Company, or fall into ita hands.

Who, think yon. would own the stock of the new company? Whose interest would It be to boy up most of the shares and control the router Manifestly the New York Central would lose no time in securing the complete control of the corporation by bnylngnp most of its shares. Directly or Indirectly, the hand of the New York Central would gov ern the new company for Us own Interest; the tolls, would oc whatever it might suit* that company to charge. Think yon that If the Erie Canal should be sold by the State of New York, it would not be bought by that gigantic monopoly? Nothing but the own ership of tbe Niagara Canal by the United States could prevent U from falling into the * same hands. Do not the railroad companies all over the country make it a point In their systematic policy to buy up every com* petlng route that refuses to combine with them ? Examples are numerous enough to occur to any reader. lam Informed and believe that the pending hill wbs drawn up hr a New Yorker, received in the House the active support of the member who la reputed to be the special representative of the New York Central, and also the support of near- | Iv If not quite, all the other railroad attor* i ney* In that body. The.ldea of tbwe gentle* men probably Is that the stock of the new corporation would be chiefly owned by the New York Central, that the Niagara Ship Canal would then be managed for the pur* nose of lessening the. transportation on the ! trie Canal, and making that property so nn* profitable that the people of “New York would compel the State to sell it t that the New York Central would boy It and thus be sole owner of the leading waters to tbc East, Including the only possible one for cheap water transportation. How would the farmers of the Northwest fight this gigantic monopoly ? Have they been so brilliantly successful in fighting the monopolies of tnclr own States that they wish, in lusty recklessness, to grapple wiiK a monster ten times as large and stromr? Will they let the Bon into the fold b order to sc whether they can get him out again? That this danger is a real one occurred tq members of Congress. Senator Harris re* carded the success of the Niagara Ship Canal as leading surely to the sale of tne Erie Canal by uie Stale of New York and added : - WclLilr there la bat one buyer, there tan be bntmaMwr* : that borer will bo the New York cS,wl U.Sr^dTlmi.ol they «1U cot control ox uui corporation around Niagara fall*, for ttat would bo a very simple process • and when (hay got (be enure control and make a monopoly of me carry* Sjtmc, l think It wtll be the darkest day foe the CHICAGO.

On the same point, Mr. Grimes said: “ Now, I hare the fear* which the Senator frtm New York ha* expressed, that If we prsss lh' B hilt for tbo benefit of a cotapaay, (ho time is not far distant when the company to which yon grant this subsidy will sell oat lu franchise to too par ties that own ihe lines of transportation across the State of New York.

They have been attempting to seeare the Erie Cana).'* It Is not probable that the new corpora tion would make a formal sale of its fran- chise, but its slock would be put upon the market and would then be bought up by the same parties who own a majority ot the shares of the New York Central. Enough has been said, 1 trust, to relieve the gentlemen of the Morris Convention from the Imputation of playing into tnc hands of the ( *do nothings’* or of being “impractica bles.” It remains to answer some of vonr special reasons why the anti-monopolists should waive their principles in favor of this monopoly. Tou say: “ The tolls are limited. .Xhebfil fixes a maximum Yale, beyond which they caniio: go, and we oft as sdred tbal rate is sot an eiuava grant one.” Now, what Is that rate? The tolls cannot exceed those charged by the Welland Canal In 186£ Bnt the Welland Canal Is twenty eight miles long, while the longest route proposed for the Niagara Ship Canal is only about halfthat distance, and the shortest is less than seven miles. Taking distance as the basis of tolls, and that Is the only one In the absence of official estimates of cost, the ex- cess of charges allowed to oar monopoly would be from one hundred to four hundred per cent, more than on the Welland! The tolls on the Illinois Canal are moderate for a canal a hundred miles long, bat would tbey be moderate if charged on a canal seven miles long? If the Welland Canal, charging those tolls, had done a heavy business, had attracted into the Ontario all the Lake Erie vessels under 400 tons burthen, had become a great thoroughfare of lake- transportation, we might infer that the Niagara Ship Canal, charging the same tolls, would also do well. But the fact is that the Welland Canal has done comparatively a very small business. Tbc tolls may not be extravagant in theory, but their practical effect is that the enrrent of the Iske trade has not been sensibly diver ted from Buffalo. If the Niagara Ship Canal cannot do better than the Welland, it would hardly be worth while to dig the ditch at all. It might remain a monument ot our national lolly as the Caledonian is of the British; that ship canal, the finest In Europe, was placed lu the bands of a corporation and under tolls, and is now abandoned by commerce. It is incorrect to say that the “maximum Is/hcrd.” The twcnty-lhlrd section of the bill provides for the alteration and revision ot the rates of toll by a Board of live Commis sioners, one to be appointed by the mouopo ly and one by the state ol New York, alias the owner of the Erie Canal Company. With two members of the Board secured, a third coaid be bought, and the monopoly could always get whatever tolls they might ask for. A similar Board of eight L* provi ded for, If dcmamledfcUhcr by the monopoly or persons aggrieved. And Congress may re vise and regulate the rates ol tolls—u power it has frequently reserved, but never has ex cised, andmever will. When wc can get our own State*Legislature to regulate tolls on our railroads, we may hope for some such action In Congress. The tight between a rich monopoly, represented ny able attor neys in ana out of Congress, and the people, represented by nobody, can have but one result. Parties urc not formed on questions of toll. . As to the reserved right of the United States to bny. It amounts to nothing prac tically, except a convenient shelter for tbc authors of the bill from the wrath of the people. It Is convenient to say to one's constituents, “ If yon don't like the corpora

tion, you can buy Us property.” Put the Government could not buy except at an enormous figure. The stock of the company would be “watered” so as to make tho pur chase too costly to be thought 01. No Con crcssman would be bold enough to advocate it. The right to buy may be classed with the security of the Government by lint mortgage, (or Us advances. The company Jwould get Congress to subordinate its secu rity to all otbcf mortgages, just os the Pacific Railroad Company hasalrcady done, juggling the Government out o( rfnety-flve millions of dollars. Your article Implies that the speedy con* stmetion of canal will bo Insured by the passage of the bill now before the Senate. This I deny. Aa it now stands, reported by the Committee on Commerce and amended in the Senate, See* tlon 28 reads os follows: ••'1 Initials act shall nol take effect unless the legislature of the State of New York shall, wllhln two year* from the Cate hereof, give 111 assent thereto." This section makes the bill a farce. There Is no probability of the consent of New York cither In two or ten years. The two Sena* ton ftom that State, most of its Represento* lives and the Slate Senate, are nil against It. So tho bill, if patted, vllt have no tffect, ex erpt to path tM whole tubjeet out itf (Jorvjn** for Itco year*.

Wo have, no doubt, lost our cause tor this Congress. Let us maintain onr honor and try it again. Wo must tncceed. The com pletion of tho Pacific Railroads will so swell die like commerce that Congress cannot re fuse to open Us natural outlets to the East ern markets and tho ocean. The spirit of the age Is with ns. Imposts on the transit of the goods of commerce are being abolish* ed everywhere. IThc ZoUvercin Treed tho Interior of Germany from them. It Is • but a few years since duties were levied on the goods of all nations on the Elbq River: since tolls ‘were exacted at several points on the Danube, and, by Holland, on the Scheldt. Those duties and tolls have all been abolished. .Our own country has the honor of having borne the brunt of the fight for ‘Hhc right of free transit,” as President Pierce colled It, throogh*ihe Sound and the Belts into the Baltic. We carried that ques tion Into half tho courts ol Europe before we succeeded. Shall we blot our honorable record by fastening a monopoly upon the only route of water transportation nature ‘ has'provided from the lakes to the ocean, levying tolls forever upon the commerce of the Northwest! For one, 1 should regard the passage of the bill now pending before the Senate as a national calamity, and as 1 postponing lor two ycavs certainly the con* ! strnctlon of a free canal around tho Falls of Niogara.

Denial of aPUaaant Fiction—'The Plain Trnili Void of Ifomancc— Captain John 'tailth’s Veracity Impeached— Pocahontas a* She Was-Curloui In* cldenta of Colonial Life* (From the New York Evening Post.] * a An article on “Captain John Smith” in the new number of the jforth, American Review is the first popular presentation of a theory which has been held for a few years past by a class of oar historical students. It not only impeaches the veracity of the founder of Virginia, but it almost demonstrates that the celebrated elorv which tells how the he roic Pocahontas saved his lifts is but a pleas ant fiction at the best. The reviewer merely repeats the theory of Mr. Charles Deane, which daring the war has been hidden away In his reprints of “ Wingfield'S Discourse of Virginia,” and of Smith’s “True Relation.” It Is shown that Smith’s character was not unquestioned in his own-times. He had trouble with his colonists : •* It was proved to his face.” says Wingfield, “ that he begged In Ireland like a rogue without a license.” But such testimony, in snch times, and from such men—lor the' first families in Virginia were a motley crew—would hardly Injure bis reputation now, were it not for the lact that he has left several autobiographical records which will not adjust themselves on a critical examination to any theory that can vindicate bis character as a man of veracity. , , , Let as examine, for example, the legend of Pocahontas. Smith started on his trip of exploration (In the history of which Pocahohtas first ap pears as bis-deliverer fronj imnendlng death] on the 10th of December, 1607, and returned on the Bth of January, following. In the same vear Smith published his ‘‘True Re lation” of this adventure. In this report he makes no mention whatever of the heroic Pocahontas. In 1624 he published his Gen erali Historic,” which introduces Pocahon tas in the attitude best adapted lor winning the applause of a Bowery audience. In his “True Relation’’ be thus speaks 6f his introduction to Powhatan,* the lather of the renowned Pocahontas: From ceuce this kind king conducted me to a placecafiedTopahaaocke, a kingdom* aponia* other river northward.

" These passages show that the episode of Pocahontas was an afterthought, rfot only does be make no mention of nor In his first narrative, hot his account of the treatment lie received from her father precludes the possibility of the action IDr which she is now renowned. He was treated with the utmost kindness and speedily' released. There are other additions ic the later narrative and several exaggerations. When he waa first captured (according to his “True Bela* Hon") he waa guarded by eight men, who In creased (in his nistory) to thirty or forty tali fellows; ms four guides from Powhatan in 1008 become twelve in 1C24; Smith, on his re* turn. In ICO6, is grateful that the arrival of Captain Newport frustrated the design of his enemies, whowero preparing to depose him, whereas, in 1824, he states that ne “laid them by tbe heels.” **Now, In Janeatowne they were all in combes* don, the atrongest preparing once more to me away with tbe Fiimace; which with the hazrard of hU life, with Sabre lalcoa and musket shot, Stolth forced now the third time to stay or stake.

According to the story, written a few months after the event, a people is described, savage, it is true, bat neltaet cruel nor bloodthirsty ; reckless, perhaps, of life in battle, but kind, and even magnanimous, toward their captive. It is expressly stated that no such demonstration was made against Smith as that which, in 1G34, .is affirmed to have taken place within an hour after his capture. Only a few days after he was taken prisoner, he represents himself as giving orders to Opechankanough to take him to Powhatan, and even at this time be knew that he was to be allowed to go to Jamestown. To him 1 told I must go, and so return to Paspabegh.” The reviewer con tinues : “Powbafatf received him with the greatest cor diality, and, having sought to content him with all tbe kiodsesa he could devise, did actually aend him with a guard ol honor back to hla mends. II the ‘True Kelailou’ Is really tme. the behavior of these naked barbarians towards Smith wa* far more humane than that which ho would have rc ccludutlhe hands of any civilized nation on tbe faced tbeeartb. There is not a trace othis bar ing felt any Immediate fear for his life, except (rum a savage whose eon he had killed, and from whom Opeehankanougb protected him. There does, indied, occur ono line to the oili-ct that they fed him bo At as to make him much doubt they meant to sacrifice bun; and this paragraph fur nishes the most striking evidence of tbe kindness ol the Inmans, and of tbe (act that be believed hlmeclf to have been mistaken m having enter tained the suspicion. Yet, Initial, we learn that all this long time of hla imprisonment he was still expecting every hour to oopultoone death or another." ’ These wide variations in Captain Smith’s versions compel us either to resist further inquiry or to reject the touching story of the lonian maiden as a fable. There is other evidence to show that the new theory Is correct. Wingfield’s “ Dis course of Virginia,” the earliest written rec ord ol the Virginia colony mentions Smith’s trip; bis advcnUiTea; the conspiracy to de pose and execute him on his return. But he is silent about Pocahontas. _ Smith'failed os a colonizer. He was do posed and sent to England under articles of complaint in ICO9. The Virginia Company refused all hla applications to bo employed again. As late as 1012 the story of Pocahontas had not been given to fhe public. |n that year Captain Smith puollshcd his “Map of Vir ginia,” with a description of the country, people, government and religion. In this little volume he still makes no mention of his brave Indian girl, although ho describes a custom which would have u&tnrally led him to do so. Uo tells ns that Jn the executions of criminals their heads were placed upon an altar, whllo “ one with clubbes beats out their brains.” lie adds that ho saw an la dlait beaten In his presence till he fell sense less without a cry or complaint. “Hero,” says the reviewer. “ wo have the whole Idea of tho story widen Uoattorwards made public. It may bo 101 l to practiced lawyers to decide whether under the ordi nary rules of evidence the passages docs not amount to a practical assertion that he had himself not occo plact d In tho position de scribed, and It may perhaps bo posslblodbr lutvro students to explain why Smith should have suppressed bis own story, supposing It to have been true.” There Is other testimony of a similar na ture. Stracbcy’s “Historic of Travailo Into Virginia,” (1015), contains a full account of Smith, and has some curloas rofctcncc* to I’ocohontas, but there Is no hint of her agen cy lu saving the hold Captain’s life. In 1014 Raphe liainor, “UleSecrctarlo of tho Colo, ulu,” published a volume lu which there was an elaborate description of the capture and christening of Pocahontas. It contains a let tor from John Rolfe, Pocahontas’* husband. No mention is made by either writer of her celebrated girlish exploit. Stiachcy gives this curious peep at Poca hontas, before she sprang, clad (n a shining robe, Into the pages of our colonial history. “ Pocahnctas, a well-featured bat wantoa yoog girlr, Powhatan's daughter, sometymes resorting moor fori, o( the ace then of eleven or twelve yeares, would got the bojes forth with her Into tie marketf-plsco, and make them wheels, falling on tbeir bands, laming np their beelci upwards, whome she would followc and wheele so her sell, naked os she woo, all the fort over. 1 * After the seizure of Pocahontas as a hos tage, and her conversion to the faith, she be *camc a personage qj note.

There Is still more evidence tending to es tablish the theory that Pocahontas did not save the life of Captain John Smith, for tho good and sufficient reason that It was never In any danger. Pocahontas was In her grave before the legend has made her memory illustrious'was flwt published. What was Smith’s motive (p Inventing this story If it was not ••historically true? We quote again trom the Jievieio: “Ibe examination of Smith’s works has shown that his final narrative was the result of gradual additions. The influence exercised by Pocahon tas on the aflair* of the Colony, according to the accounts gtvep in 1(503, was very slight. Heresp ture and her marriage to Rolfe first gave her Im portance. Her vis»t to England, however, made her beyond question the most conspicuous figure In Virginia to the public mind, and It became In-• evitable that rctnauUc Incidents in her life would be created. If they did not already exist, by the mere exercise «i the popular imagination, at tractedby a vivid picture of savage life. ♦•The history of the Emperor’s daughter be came, as we are led by Smith to suppose, a sub ject for the stage. Nothing was more natural or more probable. It is uol even mccjw to> sup pose that smith himself Invented the additions to hl« original story. He may bare merely ac cepted them after they had obtained a strong and general bold on the minds of hU conlempo ra-» in the meanwhile Smith's own career bad turned out a failure, and his ventures ended dis astrously, while In most cases ha failed to obtain the employment which he continued to Beck with utre’axed energy. In 16*2, however, a great dis aster occurred tn Ntrglnla. which wose the great t st Interest and sympathy In EngHnd fortte colo- gave occasion for renewed efiprts m their behalf. Tne Indians rose against the English, and in the month of Hay a terrible massacre took place around Jamestown. The opportunity was not one to be loet by a man who, like Smith, with endless will to set, was atill smarting under what he considered undeserved neglect, and he at once hastened to offer hi* services to the company, with a plan far restoring peace: but bit Plan wjd his offer of services were again declined. SUIU be had the resource left of which he hid, already made such frequent use, and by publishing the Generali Historic he made a direct appeal to the public more ambitions than any be had templed. In this work he embodied every*** that conld tend to the Increase of his own repu tation, and drew material from every source which conld illustrate the history of Eng lish colonUation. Pocahontas was made to ap pear In It as a kind of stage d dry on Cic*occaslon. and bis own share la the aiftlre of «he colony is magnified at the expense ofsllhls companions. Hone-of those whose reputations he nested with so much harshness appeared to vindicate their characters, far less toassert the tacts tn regard to Pocahontas. The effort. Indeed, tailed of Us object, for he remained unemployed and without mark of distinction, and died quietly in bis bed, tn London, tn June, 1611; but in the ah-ecce of criticism, due, perhaps, to the polit ical excitement ot the times, bis book survived to become the standard authority on Virginian his tory, The readiness with which U was received is scarcely so remarkable aa the credulity which (has -leftIt unquestioned atmpst to the present day." ' |( A Conference Invited. Anauw, Michigan, January, 1967. - We believe that the mission of the Wes leyan Methodist Connection of America, has been grandly successful. Twenty-five years sgo the perverted reli gions sentiment of tola nation had consti tuted the churches generally the bulwark of Anerican slavery. Crushed millions groaned hcpclctsly. Theenemles of hissed scornfully. The friends of humanity, and tbs lovers of God sighed and cried for dellv* crince. , Then It was, that this connection was or ganized by men who went out not knowing whither thet went. Their free will Offerings of friendship, reputation, and personal means, for the sake of Christ, and his poor* firmed a breakwater against tne flood ofln filclUy. Tor they proved that Christ still llres In the hearts of men, and that Chris tianity Is Divine. The fact of their organization; the founda tion principles on wtuch It was formed; and tie vigorous assaults made therefrom on slaveholders as men-stealers; and on pro riavery churches, as partakers with the thieves, developed wonderftil results in a few years in the nation, and In the church. They InUlsted the movement which many others lollowcdln all denominations. Every man and every dollar withdrawn from the pro slavery churches was multiplied thus a thousand fold in power to compel the > prosQ&V asccudcacy o t astUlaycry scatlowat within thelr pale. And herein Is stated the argument of the Wesleyan Connection In justification of Ita denominational existence. We believe farther that tills Justification Is aolonger legitimate. Neither the claims of general Christianity nor personal obliga tions to our aaeoclates demand of us fur ther efforts to maintain a separate ecclesias tical body. Being persuaded that the Providence of God points us lo tbo Methodist EoAcopal Church as a home aud a field of labor whore we may more effectually prosecute the work of spreading Scripture holiuess over these lands, we now invite all brethren entertain ing like views to meet In conference at Adri an, Michigan, In the College chapel, on Wednesday, January 30th, ISut, at 10 o’clock a. m.

To Ihe Editor of the Chicago Trihnn* - Some articles have been written for tbc papers In this city,* and one In particular in the Register of last evening, which seems to require a word of comment and explanation. The precise persons, who are denominated in tbo Register “Interested wire-workers,” who labored to defeat the “ Champaign movement,” so-called, at the last session, and who are doing the same at this session, are the State Committee, acting under the renewed and reiterated positive instructions of the several State Societies and Conven- tions appointing and approving them; namefy, the State Agricultural Society, the* State Horticultural Society, the State Teach ers’ Association, and the State Industrial Convention hold at Bloomington, December !, 1805. This committee belong to all political par- lesandare scattered over the State in the various parts of it. Their names arc J. B. Turner, of Morgan, Chairman; G. W. Mlnicr, of Toycwcll; D. R .McMasters, of.Raodolph; Arthur Bryant, of Bureau; H. Tubbs, ol Warren; President Van Epps, of Lee; Secrc tary, J. P- Reynolds and President McCon nell, of Springfield; Jesse W. Fell, of Bloom ington, and B. 6. Roots, of Tamaroa. These gentlemen have acted for more than two years, both from their own positive convic tions, and also from repeated instructions of their several constituencies, Jlrtt, to keep the college fond entire, second; to throw its location open to fair and free competition by Commissioners or otherwise, eo that the State might realize the almost possible advantages from such location, both in funds and in all other respects. The bills and charter they prepared for the last session have been unan mously re-endorsed and approved by their several constituencies, and ordered to be re newed by them ibis session. The Cham paign people have also renewed theft* bill for iLeir exclusive claims, on the same gen eral grounds as at the last session. I know of no sluglgman on this committee who is now, or ever has been, opposed* to tbo loca tion of the University at Champaign, on the principle of free competition. They have, to a man, only contended that the location should be thrown open to all the counties alike, and for nothing else. This they have everywhere openly avowed, and. through every vicissitude of the struggle, to a man, urgently. insisted on. Thlals the sum total of their “political wire-working” for tho past two years, as is known to all intelligent people lu tho State. That every! single member of this committee woald not prefer to have the University In his own county, rather than in any other county, all other things being equal. I do not deny. Hence, after the close of the last session of the Legislature, they mutually and amlcaly agreed that each member of the committee should do tho* best bo could to so* cure the very highest bid for It possible, In his own locality or part of the State: os* Miming that the present Legislature would In some way open the chance for all alike, and that thus acting they would In the end secure the utmost advantages In behalf of the University that any community In the State could offer. To this end they sought to passajtcncral enabling act for the counties unu towns at the last session, and have ro* newtd the same effort at this session. But tints far the friend* or the Champaign move* ment havo been ablo to prevent tbo passage o| that act, and thus tbo counties have been kept locally powerless to more In the prom* lees. Tbo committee hare over boon, and arc still, of tbo opinion that It will makont least two hundred thousand dollars •differ* chco In tbo cash funds of the University, whether It Is located on tbo principle which they are instructed to maintain, or on tbo principle contended for by. Champaign; »nd tbo State cannot afford to throw away that amount of ready funds. In proof of ibis fuel, a petition Is already before tbo ilouso from the citizens of Morgan County, praying for commissions of location and an enabling act, enabling them to contribute dvo hundred and twenty-five thousand dob are for ita location In that county, and specifying tbc items of cash, bonds aud real estate proffered In detail. ’McLean Is pro* paring a similar petition, and other counties and communities wUh for an equal chance. At the last session of the Legislature both the POMrs In this town stood firm and manfimyr for the charter and bills of this committee, now in the bands of Gen* end Fuller In the Senate, and Mr. Baldwin In tho House, and against tbo Champaign bills. Alibis session both of these papers at the Capital, for some unknown, and un* accountable reason, have changed entirely ronnd, and take tbo opposite side npon the tame Identical bills renewed this winter. This they had a right to do, either with or without a reason, if they saw fit. But when It comes to the unparalleled act of suppressing the publication of tho solemn unanimous resolves of onr State Board of Agriculture, here In the. Capital, on this Im* portant interest;’ so peculiarly their own, and persisting In that suppression day after day, In spite of the repeated remonstrances of our friends, and, Instead thereof, publish* mg such articles against neighboring coun ties and communities os appeared m the BsqUut last evening, similar in tono to the JowmaVt previous articles, the whole subject becomes quite unbearable. Some say that these strange movements are with the interests of Spring field In regard to the Capital; If so they are still more unwise. For I know not a man on this committee that is not willing, to say theleast, that the State Capital should re main in Springfield. Fearing that it might embarrass their interests, they forcbore even to ask the editors In Springfield to advocate their'cause again this winter. We were will ing to concede them a position of fair neu trality If they preferred it. Bnt If the great public Interests of the State cannot baft a film showing up. in the pah* lie press at the Capital, than all. this wonld seem to Indicate, X think this committee to a man would use their influence to have the capital removed to Dtfcatnr, or Bloomington, or Chicago, or Cairo, or any where else, where such Interest can have a full and fair discussion tiefpre the Legislature aud people of the State, In the public press. It should be noted that every single one of the Instltntlons at Jacksonville, of which the writer In the Batisier so bitterly complains, were located t-erc by the same power for which he contends In' bchalt of Cham paign, namely, by direct, act of the Legislature; while the county of. McLean and the city of Bloomington paid to the State over one hundred and forty-one thou sand dollars In cash for the location of the Normal, as the investigations before the Le gislature at the last cession clearly showed, ‘and ot which the sam#** writer also com plains. , _ Although lam a citizen of Morgan Co un tv lam not authorized to speak for her; nor am I en any of her committees but on this committee of the State. I shall make no de fence of her Interests, or of the great rets of the State entrusted to her care. I leave all tnat to her own legislators and her own committees ;-lf they cannot defend her, let her go undefended. Bnt I cannot per ceive what Interest Springfield, or any other town In the State, can have in smiting the great public Institutions at Jacksonville or at Normal thus rndelv and unjustly in the face. J. B. Tcrxeb. Chairman of the Committee. A, Strange War of Gening a Husband. A matrimonial commission agent was be fore the Judge of the Rochdale County Court. The agent, whose flame is Thomas Clegg, sued Charles Derrick, a moulder, upon the following bill of particulars: •• Charles Derrick, debtor to Thos. Clegg, for finding a husband, valued at £SO; comrajs stonjfper cent- per annum; amount, £2105.” Mr. Hartley, who appeared for the defend ant, remarked before any evidence was gone Into that the* law would not allow the plain tiff to recover.. The claim was for commis sion on £SO at 5 per cent., which amounted to £2 10b. The law on that point was that a contract to procure marriage between two ’parties for reward was void. The plaintiff sued for commission. The plaintiff said, “On the 20th of May this lady, then Ml*s Porter, contracted with me; while she was rocking In a chair, to*get her a husband. She said she was twenty-six years ol age. sud not married yet: and she added, 4 And I think, somehow, I shall never be married V «bc then agreed to pay me 5 per cent, on £SO per annum, it 1 would get her present husband, Charles Derrick,and I did.’’ The Judge hqld that It was an illegal claim, and. ‘alsrolsacjl the case.—London Paper.
