Mr. Blaine’s Explanation. Whm the Ncwnpapei» Say of ll. [From the Portland Advertiser.] The-tury aouu Mr Biaiue aud the Union Pacific railroad, as first nublisheri aiieg d that lie had received $64 0O0 for 475 (100 in worth less hoods of (be Little R>ck a d Fort Smith railroat Mr. E. H. Boinna, treasurer ol (he Uuiou Pacific cumpauv. was named as author- . iiv for the siaiemeut, but promptly disavowed I. saying he was sure rhat. no money bad ever been pa'd liy the compaoy ‘in any way or to nny person” in which Mr. Blaine was interest i din any manner whatever. Then it was said i hat the payment was made ostensibly to Mor ton, Bliss & Co., but for Mr. Blaine's benefit; but they immediately eleclared that nothing had been paid by them "in any form or at any time, to any person or to any corporation” in which he was known, believed -or supposed to have any interest. Then Col. Tom Scott, pres ident of the Union Pacific company, was said to have received the bonds from Mr. Blaine, ad vancing the money which finally came out of the company’s treasury; aud tow Col. Scott says the bonds ‘‘were not purchased or received fiom Mr. Blaine, directly or indirectly,” and not a dollar of the avails went to him, “or to any person for him, or for his benefit in any form.” No denial coaid be more explicit, and nil that remains is for Mr. Harrison to explaiu the insinuations for which he has allowed hlm Belf to become responsible, and for Mr. Scott or Mr. Beilins to say who did get 864,000 cash in 1871 lor 875,000 in Little Back & Fort Smith bands. Mr. Blaine’s account of his investment in the Little Bock bonds appears to be entirely frank and truthful, and is not only consistent with with all the facts which are known, but is cor roborated by the circumstances of the case. Mr. Blaine in 1861 bought some mining proper ty in Pennsylvania, which was sold under the liammer and which he happened to know was very valuable. He paid about $23,000 tor this property, which is now worth half a million, aud has for a number of years paid him an an nual income of $18,000. This transaction is well known in Maine. There are gentlemen hero who were invited to join in the purchase bnt declined, and have since regretted their de cision. It is known how and where he obtain ed the money to pay for the purchase, which was then beyond his own means, and it is not surprising to anybody who knows these circum stances that eight or ten years afterwards Mr. Blaine should have had money to invest, or that his judgment concerning an investment should have been regarded with much respect by his neighbors. In 1862 Mr. Blaine was elected to the 38th Congress. ln|1869 he was elected Speaker. In six years he had attained the highest position in the gift of the House of Representatives. He was still young; he was ambitious; he knew well and had often said, that a public inao who has anything to conceal is a fool, for nothing can be concealed from the jealous scru tiny of the host of enemies who pursue the footsteps of a successful politician. To com plete the statement it must be remembered that a id nao anuauj ntauujj unu uuu uu lumjnatiuu to mortgage bis future. It wa9 at this time that Mr. Blaine became interested in tbe Little Rock securities. Two explanations of his ownership of these securi ties are offered. One is tbe plain and natural Statement, that having mony to invest, and em boldened by the success of former speculations, Mr. Blaine, like other people, bought some stocks which turned out badly, and not only carried his own load but assumed the burdens of some of his constituents, who had invested their money on his too sanguine representa tions. The other is tbe violent assumption, that without any pressure of need, and with a clear and vivid apprehension of the folly he was committing, Mr. Blaine deliberately sold his birthright of preferment for a lot of devil's money, which turned to waste paper in his pockets. Of these two explanations we are bound to hay that the first is reasonable and credible, while the second is extravagant and preposter ous. Mr, Blaine’s political methods and asso ciations are not to oar liking. He employs means and agents which, as employed by him, and by worse politicians, have doue much to bring the public service into disorder and disre pute. But bis bitterest enemies have never ac cused him of folly; his warmest admirers have ►ometimes regretted the cautions prudence with which be takes his public positions; it is not to lie believed that this quality deserted him at a moment when when he had more to lose and less to gain by accepting a bribe than at aDy other time in his life. [From the N. Y. Times.] - Blaine’a defence is far more specific and complete than the charges brought against him, aud is entitled to proportionate weight on that account. It is, moreover, a defence for which lie assumes the responsibility, while there is no one to father the charges. On the present showing, Blaine must be held acquitted. [From the N. Y. Tribune.] Blaine’s speech regarding the $04,000 is i traightforward aud lucid, aud if his statement regarding his investment in the Fort Smith railroad is accepted, there will be little or noth ing left to support the scandal in any of its present forms. [From the N. Y. World-Dem.] Though the contradiction to the stories to which he replied was flat and peremptory, and supported by explicit letters from persons ia, positions to know whereof they affirmed, it cannot be said to have finally made an end either of Wilson or of the government director Harrison, both of whom, as we understaod it, are still “in contumacy” on the subject. [From the Herald.] We think the statement made by Mr. Blaine will be accepted as satisfactory by the candid men of both political parties. [From the Satanic Sun.] Blame made his promised speech yesterday. His subject was the $64,000 paid him by the Union Pacific company for worthless bohds. His explanation is not satisfactory and we be lieve he had tbe money. The Old Times vs. the Present —We cry out against political corruption, and justly fear for the moral foundations of tbe govermeut. I have seen a man in the lobby of the Legisla ture brandish bank bills, and openly boast, “That makes the the laws!” While I winced, I remembered that in the time of Walpole the British king bought men as he would haunches of meat. When foolish imagination sighs for the old time, it forgets that old time was cruel, superstitious and gross. The men of the old time hated personal, political and religious l.berty; they were times when men died fastei in the open country than in the dirtiest lane of cur city, tc-day. The whole progress of civil ization is in the emancipation from the theories and manners of tbe old time. We do not ex cuse our age, but when we sigh for a return of the past, let us remember that its greatest glory was the divine discontent with those times. One commanding aud supreme indica tion of tbe world’s progress is its higher and and better estimate of woman. The position of woman is always the test of society. To-day as I stand in the ample halls of some great school, filled with the hum of industrious and happy life, I remember that in the girl of the age of Pericles all scholastic diligence would have been accepted as evidence of evil design. —-George WiUiam Curtis. Insurrection in Barbadoes.—Respecting the insurrection in Barbadoes to which refer ence was made in our despatches of Monday, a private letter received by a firm in this city Bays that at present there is a good deal of ex citement there amongst the lower classes, chiefly owing to the agitation on the part ol the government to bring into operation a ■cheme of confederation with some of tbe neighboring islands. The measure is strongly opposed by everyone in the community oi any standing, and generally by the masses. Every Sort of means is being adopted to stir up class ■gainst class, and the consequence is that nearly everything is in a disorganized condi tion. Business, too, is] depressed in all de partments. Abont Women. A St. Louis girl who was married on Wednes day last made her husband give her previous to the ceremony, a written promise that he would take her to Philadelphia and reside there with her during'.the Centennial. Mrs. Sheridan thought a parrot might ■muse the baby, and said so, but when she ■aw an eighteen-pounder Parrot gun come trundling up to the house on a dray, she saw that Philip had misunderstood her.—Richmond Enquirer. From Fun: Mary. “I say, Mrs. McCarthy, this ’ere’s a very bad cabbage.” Mrs, M. “Shurt now, and is it, honey ? Then pick another. Bless yer, young cabbages is like sweethearts: you must thry half a dozen ’fore ye gets a gooc wan.” Under a new law allowing women to vote for school officers in Minnesota, about twc hundred and fifty of that sex went to the polls at a school election in Minneapolis last week They were very courteously treated by the men In attendance, and the ballot boxes were decor ated with flowers to celebrate the first exer cise of their new political privilege. In bis lecture on Women in the Old and New Times, George William Curtis said:—‘‘yester day is gone and to-day has come. The fretted •lave of the Greek household, and tbe idle toy and doll of the age of Chesterfield has given place to a better idea: and we go forward will God's help, to find the true woman in the free American homes.” An English lady was sitting on a lawn will her three young children playing around her when there came into tbe inclosure a rabid dog pursued by men who were determined to kill him. Instead of screeching and wildly grasp ing her children, the laJy rushed forward and ■iezed the dog’s head in the folds of her dress bolding him until relieved by ths men, and so all escaped unhurt. Col. Tom Scott, president of the Pennsyl vania Central Kail road, Senator Simon Cam cron, and other prominent Pennsylvanians, have extended to Mrs. James K. Polk at Nash ville, Tenn., an invitation to visit the centen nial. Should she conclude to accept the invi tation, a sleeping car will be sent to convej her to Philadelphia, where she will be treated with all tbe high consideration due the wife o a deceased President. BY TELEGRAM. I MATTERS IN MAINE. A Wi Miport Ncumau Arr< sli d. New York, April 25.—.lames E Wilsou, , mate of the schooner .1. W. Beasley of West- ■ port, Me., is under arrest for threatening to shoot a man Iasi uigh', who was tryiug 'o rescue another man Irom druwuiug. The affair was undoubtedly the result of a misunder standing, Wilson believing them to be dock thieves. Both were drunk. Accident on the Portland *' Ogdensbnrg Railroad. Woodville, N. H., April 25.—The Portland and Ogdenfburg train had a very narrow escape from being thrown down a bank this afternoon at Lunenburg, Vt.,the engine leav ing the rail, going over a frog, running about ten rods on ties, and bringing up in a ditch badly damaged.

An Open Letter from Moulton to Beecher, Francis B. Moulton, in an open letter to Henry Ward Beecher, submits the following proposition: “I will so amend my complaint that the issue shall he, if it is not so offered now, that by your perjury you caused me to be indicted for libel tor' saying that you were an adulterer, you then well knowing that what I said was true. Waiving all formalities, I will go to trial upon this issue alone, aod I will agree that all wit nesses shall be beard without techiual objec tion, who know anything of any fact tending to prove that issue, either of their own knowl edge or by statements of either concerned in the double crime, or any other testimony the tribunal before which the trial is had shall choose to bear. As I do not desire to get any money from you by my suit, which would perhaps be paid from the funds of the church, which ought to be devoted to a better use than indemnifying you against the consequences of your crimes, I will ask no damages whatever save the nominal sum of one dollar if the issue is found to be in my favor.” Moulton offers to submit this issue to a jury summoned in the ordinary mode, or by ex irreoiueiHi wuuwejr ut vuuc^i ur uy Deacon Geo. C. Robinson of Plymouth church, or by a jury half selected by Thos. G. Shear man and Edward Beecher, and the other half by himself, the verdict of the. majority to be accepted as the final decision. Atlantic Sc Pacific Railroad—An Exten sion from Rye Reach to Portland. The directors or the Atlantic & Pacific Tele graph Co., at a meeting this afternoon, agreed to run a line from New Orleans to Vicksburg, Natcbez, Louisville, and another from Cinciu cinnati to Indianapolis, Terre Haute and St. Louis, An extension from Albany to Spring field and^xreenfield will be run, and ope from Rye Beach to Portland, and from Fall River to New Bedford. WASHINGTON. The Winslow Extradition. Washington, April 25.—The strong protest by Secretary Fish against the position of the British government in the Winslow matter has now reached England, and it is believed to have been read to Lord Derby by our Charge d’Affaires at London, although theDepartment of State is not so officially advised. The protest being of an unnsually grave character and the question at issue between the two countries so important and involving good faith in carrying out the treaty stipulations it is not doubted that the British government will bestow on the protest the full consideration it deserves and therefore some days must elapse belore our government will be informed whether that of Great Britain adheres to the former determin ation, Pendmg the negotiation the Secretary of State will not communicate to the House the correspondence. The Emma Mine Investigation. House Committee on Foreign Affairs today received from England certain documents from the office of the Emma Mining Co , including those about which Mr. McDougall telegraphed several weeks ago as affecting Gen. Schenck, Gen. Schenck may again be heard by tbe com mittee. Clymer Denies Relknap’s Statement. Mr. Clymer denies the statement in Bel knap’s rejoinder that he promised Belknap immunity from impeachment on consideration that he resign. All he said to Montgomery Blair, Belknap’s counsel, was "if Belknap has not resigned by tomorrow noon I shall move for his impeachment,” but he never gave tbe assurance alleged in the rejoinder. Belknap’s assertion that he offered to confess if his wife’s name was left out of the record is admitted to be true by the committee, but they declined the offer. District Attorney Wells’ Removal De manded. Columbus Alexander and some fifty other citizens are preparing a memorial asking for the removal of District Attorney Wells in view of the approaching trial of Babcock. They say Wells is intimately concerned with the ring and did his utmost to defeat Babcock’s indict ment. John Dolan’s Contract. John Dolan testified today that he had an in • terest in the Hammond surveying contract, and that Col. John Newman was his partner, Delano only furnishing the money. He re ceived over $895 from Merriman, and not over $3000 from Hayes and all his surveying con tracts. He did not recollect any talk with the President about the matter. The Quartermaster’s Department Gen. Ingalls testified today that the quar termaster’s department was not moved until the sanction was received of the War Depart ment and as be understood with the recoin mendation of Gen. Meigs. Ex-Attorney Oeneral Ackerman’s Testi mony. The committee reassembled at 2 o’clock and decided to require an answer of ex-Attorney General Ackerman to the question as to wheth er he consulted with the President before pay ing money over to Davenport. Mr. Ackerman put in a protest against answering, on the ground that it was illegal and prohibited by the statutes that such communication with the Executive be made public. Ackerman then went on to state that some time in 1871 while the President was at Long Branch and he (Ackerman) was in Washing ton, he received a letter written by Gen. T»_._• _J__1.1_ . L - r . i * vt vvi *u uvwiuuuw nmu vuv uucutivu vi tup President, stating that a Mr. Davenport was engaged in searching out frauds against natur alization and registration in New York and suggesting to him (Ackerman) that he could usefully employ a portion of the money given to him by Congress to suppress th9 election frauds in this New York ca9e. Witness was at that time engaged in investigating the lvu Klux (they were called) affairs in the South, and he replied to the President’s suggestion that he had already appropriated his money in that direction. He was told in a subsequent communication from the President that the funds could be used with as great advantage in New York as in the South. After a full ex planation he authorized the payment to Dav anport. These conversations with the President ex tended through the fall of 1870 and spring of 1871. The frauds in elections were matters of frequent consultation and witness recommend ed the employment of special counsel, and among others who were employed in the New York cases was Caleb Cushing. He could not state any specific case in which the frauds were connected, but he knew they were gener al. Mr. Cushing was paid for his services out of what was called the judiciary fund. Wit ness never thought the President was influ enced in his aetion by any partizau motive. He wanted to prevent the frauds and he did not care what party they affected. He could not recollect that any portion of this money was U9ed to detect frauds in Philadelphia. The latter was a Bepublican city and New York was Democratic, but that did not influ ence the President in his action. The frauds In New York seemed to be, systematic. That was the Hel l of Davenport's operations, and the President was of the opinion that if his system could be of advantage there it would be elsewhere. The President never for a moment thought he was acting in a partizan manner. - Committee adjourned until tomorrow. Belknap’s Line of Defence. It appears from the statements of the friends of Gen. Belknap that he claims that he will on his trial, if permitted, call every one of the 180 post-traders to refute the hearsay testimony that the purchase of such offices is universal It is also claimed that §330,000,000 passed through the War Department during his term of office without a penDy being unaccounted for; also that he has kept a strict account of bis housekeeping expenditures extending over about three years, and his books and hills month by month show that with possibly two exceptions his expenditures were less than his salary as Secretary. These statements serve to indicate the probable line of defence in the ap proaching trial. Various nailers. The sub-committee headed by Representa tive Willis of the House committee on naval affairs will on Monday next begin an investi gation into the management of the Brooklyn navy yard. The postoffice bill adopted by the House ap propriation committee provides that the free delivery system will not be introduced in cities of less than 40,000 inhabitants, adops the new system of compensation for mail service bv space instead of weight, and virtually cuts off the present fast mail trains. The maximum speed is fixed at 30 miles per hour. The judiciary committee have written to the president of the Union Pacifio Railroad asking him to submit within ten days a proposition for the creation of a sinking fund by the com pany to meet the government indebtedness. The House territorial committee will report favorably on the bill admitting New Mexico as a state. forlj •Fcurtli Cougress— First Session. Washington, April 25. SENATE Mr. Sherman from 'he Fiuante Cemmiltee, reported back with amendments a concurrent resolution to secure uuitoimiiy id gold coiu moneys and accounts betweeu the Unit'd States aod Great Britain. I’lac-d on the calender. A bill removing the political disabilities of J tinea E. Slaughter of Alabama, aud one for the re ief of Postmaster Seeley ol Great Bar rington, Mass., w-re passed. The chair announced McMntlan as a member of a special couiinitt-e to itiqure intotbecir cnmstauces aUendiug the late election m Mis sissippi in place of Oglesby, who was excused at his own request. Mr. Beutwell presented a petition of the Massachusetts Association of Classical and High School Teachers in lavor of the metric system of weights and measures. Referred to Committee on Finance. On motion of Mr. Morrill of Maine, the Sen ate insisted on its amendments to the deficiency appropriation bill and agreed to to the confer ence asked for by the House. Messrs. Morrill of Maine, Allison and Davis were appointed members of the conference. • The bill relating to the Japanese indemnity fund came up. Mr. Edmunds desired to speak but was phys ically unable, and it was laid over till to-mor row. By a vote of yeas 48, nays 41, it was refused to recede from the amendment of the Senate to ihe diplomatic appropriation bill, and on mo tion of Mr. Sargent it was ordered that the Senate insist on its amendments and for a com mittee of confereoce, and the chair appointed Messrs. Sargent, Frelinghuysen and Withers. The Senate then resumed the consideration of the bill to amend the law relating to the legal tender of silver coin, and Mr. Jones re sumed his argument. Mr. Logan announced that he wonld move to strike oat clause in the bill reported by the committee making it a legal tender to the amount of $20, aud leave it a legal tender for any amount. Mr. Bogy moved that the bill aud peudiug amendments be printed. It was so ordered. At the conclusion of Mr. Jones’ speech the Senate went into executive session and at five o’clock adjourned. HOUSE. The District tax bill providing for a tax of 1J per cent on all real and personal property was passed. Mr. Wbitthorne of Tenn., chairman of the Committee on Naval Affairs, asked leave to make a report of the testimony taken before that committee, and that it be printed and re committed. Mr. Hurlburt objected to the printing of a re port that was not read. It was thereupon withdrawn.

It embraces a discussion of the legal right of Congress to require this sinking fund, and the necessity and justice of it. It is a very full and elaborate report. Ordered print ed and recommitted. The House at oae o’clock went into Commit tee of tbe Whole on the executive appropria tion bill. A motion to amend by increasing tbe appro priation for the San Francisco mint caused quite a bitter tilt between Messrs. Piper of California and Randall of Pennsylvania. Tbe former called Philadelphia a mud village where they grabbed all they could and gave nothing for it, and said that the labor of casting metals at Philadelphia required only as much science as to cast bullets. Mr. Randall said that Philadelphi a contained more bouses than New York, Brooklyn and San Francisco combined. Mr. Kelley of Pa., said that the money paid to coin gold was wastage,and all the gold coined between 1819 and 1870, amounting to 8540,000, 000, had all gone abroad as merchandise. Mr. Piper—To pay the interest on the na tional debt. Mr. Kelley—It would have paid every dollar of the debt if it had gone as minted bars, for tbe reduction of bars to coin was wasting pari of the gold. Mr. Kelley continued aud held up a ten dollai gold piece in derision as a specimen ot San Francisco manufactures, saying, "God forbid that such work should ever come from Phila delphia.” The amendment to increase the appropriation for the San Francisco mint was rejected. The proposition to increase the appropria tions for the Carsoa City and Nevada mints was also lost. An item was inserted of 014,000 to carry on the assay office in tbe mint building at New Orleans; also 04000 for the mint at at Cbar lotte, N. O ; also 05000 for the assay office at Boise City. The consideration of the bill was interrupted to allow Mr. Lord of New York, chairman oi the impeachment managers, to present a re joinder to the demurrer by W. vV. Belknap. The paper was read and is to the effect that the House of Representatives, in the name of it self and of all the people of the United States, says the first replication to the plea of Belknap to the articles of impeachment and the matters therein contained are iD matter and form suffi cient in law for the House to maintain its arti cles of impeachment, and the Senate as a court of impeachment has jurisdiction to hear, try and determine tbe same, and that as Belknap has not answered such articles of impeachment or in any manner denied the same, the House of Representatives prays judgment thereon ac cording to law. As to the first and second sub divisions of the rejoinder to the second replica tion of the House to the plea of the defendant, wherein the defendant demands a trial accord ing to law, the House in behalf of itself and all the people of the United States does the like,*and as to tbe third, fourth and sixth sub divisions of the rejoinder, the House asserts that it ought not to be barred from having and maintaining articles of impeachment againsl defendant because it denies every argument in such rejoinder which denies or traverses the acts or intents charged against the defendant, aud it reaffirms the truth of the latter, and therefore the House of Representatives prays judgment according to law. The paper was approved by the House and the clerk was ordered to file it with tber secre tary of the Senate. The consideration of the legislative appro priation bill was resumed, the question beint on the amendment offered by Mr. Hurlbut o Illinois, to increase the compensation of terri torial judges from 02500 to 03000. No quorum voting it was agreed that the amendment be offered in the Bouse and voted on. Mr. Hoar of Mass., offered an amendment forbidding territorial judges accepting anj compensation except that provided by Con gress. The fact had been stated in the debate that the territorial Legislature of Utah made an appropiiation to increase the compensation of U. S. judges who acted there In a dual ca pacity, The amendment was agreed to. After disposing of six pages of the bill, pro gressing as far as the provisions for the Wat Department, the committee rose aud the House at 0 o’clock adjourned. MASSACHUSETTS.

Because the have not made this disease the study ot a life-time, as did old Dr. Racder, a dis tinguished German Professor, who has probably spent more time over this intricate complaint than any person on the globe. Reflect tor a moment, use yonr good sense, and remember tlicit the origin of Catarrh is in a tOAIUOY COLD Which one Box of the great remedy, RAIDER’S German Snuff’, Would have quickly cured. Now wbat are the spmptoms of Catarrh? They commence with a sense of irritation about the nasal organs which, if nol allayed with GERMAN SNUFF, altera short time extend to the throat. As you lie down at night, and tain would sleep and rest the wreary brain, HORRIBLE TO SAF, The Secretions of the Head PASS TO THE LUNGS, Causing these delicate organs to beeome impregnated with CATARRHAL POISON. In the morning you arise with a dull, heavy feel ing about the head and extreme nausea at the stom ach; you cau eat nothing with a relish, to work is n task, as you have that dull pain and sense of oppres sion which demonstrates the fact that CATARRH HAS SECURED A VICTIM. Now when you realize this fact, do not get frightened and run and pay five or ten dollars for worthies* advice, but invest just 35 cents in a box ot KJiUMS German Snuff, Use it according to directions, and a cure is war ranted. PEOPLE OF NEW ENGLAND, Beware of tbia bnne of ibe age; do not be cat dowa in Ibe prime of life and harried to the Brave. Remember Catarrh rnom Consumption, and by Ibe use of thin reme dy yon will certainly be cared. MEN AND WOMEN, we mean you who are troubled with these com plaints, alasl so common, such as Partial Paralysis, Neuralgia of the Head, Dim Yision, Loss of Energy, Loso no time to rid yourself of what in time will kill you, for alt of the above are the results of neglected Catarrh. MOTHERS! MOTHERS! We beg of you do not give your little ones Worm Medicine when they complain of being ‘‘stuffed up.” No, no! they have what is far worse and more dan gerous than a myriad of worms. They have INFANTILE CATARRH, Which, when neglected, and their bodies are placed in a horizontal position, leads very often to wnat h known as a SUDDEN CROUP, which in nine case! out of ten cannot he cured, and you behold youi loved one die before your eyes. Mothers, always keep on hand a box of R/EDER’S GERMAN SNUFF. nSrS?v.?rywhere:J>rlce on,y 35 cents. SMITH, DOOLTTTLh SMITH, 26 Tremont St., Boston, Agents for U« S. Uec7MW*&Ssn6ni TO THE LADIES !
