SMITH, Secretary, Portland, May 4,1876. Decoration Day. It is a matter of congratulation that Deco ration Day or Memorial Day has come to b generally recognized and observed. It woul be an act of the basest ingratitude to forget the men whose patriotism, self-denial and sacrifice saved the Republic aud the blessings which we as a nation enjoy. The government “of the people by the people, and for the peo ple” which our fathers transmitted to us was a priceless legacy. Its preservation by the patriotism, valor and sacrifice of hundreds cf thousands of men of our own generation, should makeit yetmore sacred, and they justly merit every tribute we can offer. To-day hundreds, in words of eloquence, will do homage to the nation’s dead—the saviors of fatherland. Hundreds of thousands will show their regard for the nation’s dead by partici pating in the imposing and suggestive services to which the day is set apart. Hundreds of thousands will shed the silent tear above the graves of those who 'are regarded as the martyrs to a great and just cause. It is well thus to do. We can never repay the debt we owe the men who forfeited life for national existence and universal freedom. The heroic dead, the memory of whom we refresh to-day, have justly earned the largest praise which living men can give. But our homage will be but bitter mockery if it is all to end with the public services of this day—with eloquent words of tribute and the strewing of the graves of the dead with flowers which will be withered to-morrow. Our highest homage must be rendered in deeds. We can best show our appreciation of their faithful and unselfish service by striv ing to make the state they saved worthy of their martyrdom, and the people to which it was bequeathed worthy of the great sacrifice. To save the country from another civil war and the vice and crime which always attend ignorant masses, tho nation must secure a more general system of public instruction. To realize that which makes a Republic worth the martyrdom of thousands of good men, there must be a higher and truer civilization based upon a higher intelligence, a broader sense of private and public integrity, a no bler code of public and private honor and a more active private and public conscience. To make the country worth what it has cost in blood alone, it must be something more than a state whose people regulate duty and conscience by the statutes, and the decisions of the courts; something more than a terri tory where material prosperity is the only measure of greatness and an arena where ‘UWUVJ ouiuuiuu UJ TV UK.U uuaiacici ao well as property is measured, and one man or class of men may become opulent at the price of the wretchedness and ruin of others. Great reforms are demanded in a general way, but the demand will be futile until all that we desire in the administration of public affairs prevails on the street, the farm, in the mart, the workshop, and wherever man comes in business and social contact with his fellows. Above all it is essential to maintain the difference which existed between the men who died for the Republic and those who fell in attempting its overthrow. While as men we should be above the resentments of the late war, this sentiment should not lead us to render the same homage to the rebel as to the patriot. To do so is to inculcate the lowest notions of patriotism and sacrifice for prin ciple. That they were brave men and true men all will generously admit. But they were brave and true to a wickbd cause. On the other hand, the soldier of the Republic, appreciated the great principle at slake and dared and suffered death to maintain the right. They belonged to the great army of heroes who, in all ages, have given their lives for human rights. They are martyrs of he roic mould. For them we have garlands, honor and tears. For those who fought to destroy our fair heritage, we have tears and pity and for their present sufferings, aid. But between the patriot who becomes a martyr and the bravest man who dies in an endeavor to destroy a blood fought country there is a gulf as wide and impassable as that which separates heaven and hell. Our patriot dead Deioug 10 tnat innumerable company ol he roic men who, in all ages, have (lied on the battle-field, the scaffold aud in the dungeon for human liberty. Let us not do violence to their memory by putting them on the level of gladiators or even of brave men who faced death without a holy cause, Rather than do this it i3 better to forget them, since to be forgotten is better than to be insulted. If we will bat hear, these dead we honor speak as the living cannot. Let us while standing about the graves of the patriot dead—these altars of sacrifice—dedicate our selves anew to the higher duties of citizen ship. Thus may we be enabled at this cen tenuial time of the Republic to turn back to life’s duties with a nobler purpose to be worthy of the sacrifice made for us because we have scattered flowers upon the graves of the patriot dead and rendered true homage to their noble martyrdom. Of Governor Tilden’s “memorandum,” at tached to the veto of the Canal Deficiency bill, the New York Times very pointedly and justly says it “is uutrue and is intended to deceive.” It proceeds to review the paper at length, proving that the Governor has re sorted to “artful tricks” in the perversion of figures, and convicting him of misrepresent ing the “real economies,” for which he claims credit, to the extent of five millions. It is a very severe arraignment, but every point is demonstrated. The Indianapolis Sentinel, (Dem) refuses to publish a fulsome puff of Gov. Tilden sent on, in print, to be paid for as an adver tisement. The Georgia Chronicle (also Dem.) received a similar request and used it as a text for a scathing criticitm upon that mode of manufacturing public sentiment. The memorial address of the Rev. S. Tay lor Martin, in which he bitterly attacks the North and proclaims that the hope of South ern independence is not yet given up, is very generally condemned in the South, not be. cause of the nature but of the impolicy of the sentiments. Those who blame the ora tor take occasion to say that they believe in the truth of every word he uttered, and yet they think he wa3 unwise to speak as he did. Thoughts like his should have no expression until after the Presidential election. Barney Caulfield favors the nomina tion of Judge Davis, because the Judge “is in full accord with the leading principles of the Democratic party.” He certainly follows its practices, and hastens to affiliate with the leaders of every cheap movement, like infla tion and labor reform, in the land. Political News. Ex-Doorkeeper Eitzhugh is said to have received an offer to lecture at the North on Southern Democracy. Representative Ben Hill is a prominent candidate for the seat of Uuited States Sena tor Norwood of Georgia, whose term will end next year. The Republicans of the Seventh district of Iowa have nominated Col. H. J. B, Cum mings, an editor, for Congress. This is Mr. Kasson’s district. He was not a candidate. The Chicago Tribune learns that the Presi dent is said to have suggested the names of McCrary, of Iowa, and Senator Alcorn, of Mississippi, as the favorite candidates for the Vice Presidency. The New York World is engaged in prov ing that the resolutions of the recent Demo cratic convention in that state do not tram mel the delegates, who will therefore go to St. Louis unpledged. All of which is very sad for Tilden, whose presidential prospects seem to have flattened terribly. Gen. Sherman has put on record again his sensible determination to stay put where he can do the most good. In reply to an admir ing friend he says:—“I recognize the friendly motive of the communication, but am so hardened in my preference for my own pro fession over all others that nothing can shake my determination. I have no fears on the subject, but am sure that our country will nrodllAA An amnlu siinnlXT r\f rrnrwl oeiwll.lnfAn and that the people will choose from their number a good President.” [Boston Advertiser.1 Shall I, or Shall I Noll To the Editors of the Boston Daily Advertiser Will you allow a much bewildered man to attempt to explain the cause of his confusion and to ask your advice? I have been for years an earnest politician, by which term X mean that I have always voted and worked for prin ciples and men apparently worthy of support. I have been' a eteady and persistent Republi can, because in the snccess of that party alone could I see any prospect of tbe triumph of right principles. I voted for Fremont and Lincoln and Grant as the standard-bearers of a just cause. I bolted Bntler and Talbot and so on, two years ago, because it seemed pofwble to separate men from principles, and the men were not to my liking. But now lam in a quandary. I am solicited to join a Bristow club, and I am trying to see whether, on principle, I should do so or not. I ask first the cause of its existence, having a reluctance to join a club devoted solely to the advancement of one man. I remember that there were Tweed clubs in New Yors and Flynn clubs in our own city; and I do not exactly like the idea of a Bristow club, at least before he has become the nominee of either of tbe great parties. X am assured that this movement is in the in terest of Reform, and is a great uprising of the independent voters, and all that; but I find its supporters in this city are the Democratic Her ald and the nondescript Globe. I look in vain, Mr. Editor, in your columns for advice, and I have decided to ask you for it, point blank. It had really seemed to me that the object of a National Convention was to select a candi date; that there were several very suitable and fit persons in the Republican ranks whose names would be before that convention, and that I might well wait the result of tbe meet ing at Cincinnati before X prcclaimed my own choice. Suppose X shout for Bristow as the only pure and upright man left, and sneer at Conkling, abuse Morton an d decry Blaine; and then suppose that Bristow is not nominated; what shall I do? I can’t rttract, I can’t recent and to bolt I am ashamed. This, indeed, gives me pause. But again, when tbe Bristow movement be gan, I said to myself. “Morton I know, and a-eiuiuu a. niJUTf, UUb WUU 13 UIIHUW . Ot 1081 I knew Dotting of him literally, for J. presume I know as much as nine-tenths of the gentle men composing the club; their meetings seem ing to be held maiDly to enable ore or two gen tlemen to explain that they personally know the Secretary. But in the sense of knowing how the man would act in office, I repeat I know nothing, and I lack courage to take aDy more untried men. I remember Mr. Editor, the late lamented Andrew Johnson. He also was a Southerner, and a Urnon mao, and I be lieve he did good service in his sphere. But he became President and then-. To be impar tial, I recall that Grant was an able general, bnt untried in high office; we made him Presi dent, and—we shall not renominate him. Now, when any man has been in Congress lor years, when he has had to speak and vote on important public questions, we all make up our minds as to what he will do in future af fairs. I may not like Cox, or Randall, or Banks, or Morton, or Blaine, or ConkliDg, bnt X think I know what they will do in regard to matters of finance, or tariffs, or education, or State rights. But as to this estimable Bristow, what do I know? He is large, he is upright, be is a fair lawyer, he cut off the gas and wa ter at the Boston Post Office, be does not seek office, he has not made any mark as a financier he has prosecuted the whisky rings, be is taci turn. These are the very heterogeneous bricks from which I am to erect a platform, or, rather the only materials out of which I am to con struct the statesman of the future. And again, Mr. Editor, I should not feel at home in a Bristow club in Boston. I was an anti-slavery man in the old times, and I be lieve that Republicanism means a holding fast to what we gained by the war. But X recognize amoDg| the movers a very different element. Xtsee therein the men who opposed Governor Andrew and Charles Sumner trougliout, and who would to-day say that they fought to up hold the Constitution, but not to tree the slave. Now they have a right, to their beliefs and opinions, but. if these are different from mine, bow can I join bands with them and oppose the nomination of an old aDti-slavery man per haps? Besides, I feel a half impression that Jby try w nuc jiicicicutca Ul new XaUglUUU 1 am contributing to a deplorable result 1 had supposed that Blaine fairly represented New England Republicanism, aud if not a saint be was at least, like our friend Judge Russell, “a very sweet sinner”. United New England may have a great influence at Cincinnati, but with a divided delegation can she do much? 1 admire Reform. I like to Rpeil it with a large R and resolve that it is essential aud all that But if the time be not ripe for it, and instead of Reform I aid in a fizzle, with a very small f, shall I be able to look oack to my Bristow club-work with complaceocy? Can X or any two hundred gentlemen of leisure so in stantaneously change the American voter tlirougbt the land, as to make him forego bis desire to shout and vote for some man be has heard of and to persuade him to take np my pet candidate whom l admire chiefly for being cultured and quiet and gentlemanly? And it 1 do not, am I not giving a victory to some fierce aud terrible Democrat who won’t be wise and may be dishonest? Can X explain to my self why 1 pass over Charles Francis Adams, who has a national reputation aud is my high est type of a statesniao, to take up Bristow, who may prove to be a similar man after he has had the twenty years pnblio training which he now lacks? Really, Mr. Editor, as you see, these ques tions are troublesome. I want Reform, 1 per haps wish to be a reformer. It would be a sweot thought after electiou that X had joioed the uoble kuot of humble citizens, unknown to public fame, who bad broken in pieces the cor rupt ring of office holders. How grand to be the little David to slay this Goliah! But sup posing that Goliah not only kills David, but does it without effort, will tho immediate friends of the deceased be able to think of his fate with complaceocy? May they not instead iuscribe u^on bis tomb some such epitaph as this: "To be a noble ox he lusted— But from excess of wind ho busted.” I believe the liberty party some elections ago, were able to defeat tbe Whigs,bat thereby gave the victory to tbe Democrats. Is that a good example to follow? In short, Mr. Editor, is not this Bristow movement in Massachusetts a misuse of energy and ability at the present time, and an exhibition ot an almost feminire impatience aud inability to await events? If a bad nomination be made at Cincinnati, there will be enough ready t) bol'; but until that convention is held why should any clique of Bostouiaus be so anxious to settle tbe decisions of the party, and if they aspire to do s j will they merit or receive any thanks? Our New York Letter. A Madden Whirl ia Trade,-Production and Connnplior.-Dearth orEnp'of “eni.-The Political Outlook New York, May 27,1870. \Ve witnessed this week one of those sadden whirls in trade, which is almost always the rebound from extreme and unnatural depres sion and inactivity. The agents of somo ex tensive mill owners, tired of holding large stocks of cotton goods for which there was no demand at any price, determined .to offer them at auction. Tbe consequence was that there was an eager throng of bidders, aod things went off with great spirit and success uDder the stimulus of active competition. Dealers appeared from every large city in tbe United States, and bought with an alacrity which demonstrated'that they bad only been waiting for some satisfactory test to assure them that prices had reached their minimum in order to gird on their strength for a fresh start in the race for proflts. Goods sold low of course. That was to be expected. But the number and character of the purchasers, the confidence with which they entered the lists, and tbe spirit of hopefulness which pervaded the assem blage were all auguries of better times. One of the encouraging features of this occa sion was the evidence it gave that while so many traders have been obliged to sucoumb to the pressure a goodly number of strong aod steadfast houses remained to contest for prizes in the great lottery of business. They are ready to profit by a reaction whenever it comes. There will be no instant appreciation of values perhaps, certainly no returning waveof san guine speculation, but something like an es tablished market, iu which people can buy and sell with the confidence inspired by tbe belief that tbe laws of supply and demand and the relations between producer and consumer are not entirely suspended. The sale was on four months credit, but the buyers were men of such high standing that the risk of selling them was very trifling. Many of them could cash their bills without tbe slightest incon venience at almost any time of year, aod par ticularly just now when tbe rate of interest ranges from two and a half to five per cent, per annum. It would be by no means safe to assume that the surplus stocks of dry goods have been suffi ciently reduced yet to bring production and consumption into healthful juxtaposition. And until that point Is reached the public may reel an easy assurance that they will not have to pay ewrbitant prices for the leading sta ples in that line. All the materials which con stitute the necessary clothing of men or women are at about half the price they averaged dur ing the decade preceding the panic. There are lines of goods—print cloths for example— that rule forty per cent lower than they did before the rebellion broke out, and when we were on a specie basis. The people can live cheaply now. What they need is employment. One of the most inevitable coosequenoes of a commercial revulsion is to compel a large num ber of changes of occupation. There are fewer shop keepers and middle men than there were. Producers and consumers are getting nearer together, and are not obliged to submit to so many exactions for intermediary services in exchanging their commodities. This all goes to help the masses, but it bears with peculiar severity upon the individuals who have hitherto derived their support from that source. In New York there always is an excess of applicants for situations over the requirements of business. The fascinat on of a pursuit in which there are possibilities of fortune, attract hitber ambitious youths from all parts of the country to increase the native supply which is never scanty. Consequently in the noon tide of prosperity clerks can always be hired for a pittance, and there is never room for all that are seeking places. Bnt after such a panic as we had in 1873—when so many mercantile houses were engulfed in hopeless iusolvency, and those that survived the storm reduced their expenses to the lowest possible figure, such a multitude of men were thrown out of employ ment that it is pitiful to witoess the eager strife with which they jostle each other in quest of any kind of a position. Even the humbler offices ia the federal, state and muni cipal service, which are wretchedly ill paid and of most uncertain tenure, are sought for with iotense avidity. On the occurrence of the re cent change in the bead of the Appraiser’s De partment in the New York Cnstom House, the new incumbent was besieged with importuni ties for appointments, notwithstanding the places were nlleU and the substitution was al together personal and in no sense political, in less than sixty days be bas received thirteen hundred applications, and there are but two hundred and ten posts at his disposal, so that if he were to turn out every man in his force, to make room for tbe besiegers, be would still be obliged to disappoint consid erably more than four-fifths of them. And yet, hopeless as this calculation of chances makes the effort, thisjarmy of expecunts follow up the escalade with a perseverance that ignores ob stacles and a pertinacity wb ch is terribly de structive of tbe peace and comfort of the gen tlemen who happen to be the object of their solicitations. - Bearing in mind that here is a ratio of eighty four per cent. of petitioners to sixteen per cent, of places, and that too of places which are neither vacant nor likely to be vacated, and which it is for the most part an utter waste of time to seek, you can form some idea of the numbers that have been reduced to penury and are suffering privation and misery in the grest metropolis because they can get nothing to do whereby they can earn bread. Years must elapse before business will revive to a sufficient extent to give them all an opportunity to gain a livelihood by their old calling even if their sad experience should deter others from enter, ing into the list of competition with them. The beet thing they can do for their own ad vantage and that of the community is to mi grate to regions where there are lands to be tilled and crops to be raised. The hardy inde pendence of the farmer is infinitely preferable to the toilsome, precarious and subordinate life of a clerk. An exodus of ten or twenty thousand of this class of onr citizens, woald diminish the burdens of New York and add something to tbe store of the country at large. The events of the week have lifted some of the clouds that obscured the political horizon. Leaving out of view the possibilities of tbe ap pearance while tbe tournament is at Its height ui iudi uijifwiiyus uuuueu Kugub, woo 18 ai read; foreshadowed under the title of the “Un known” and who is expected by some to bear off the prize—there ye but two competitors for the Republican nomination whose chsnoes are at this moment wotth considering. One of them hails from your State, the other from ours. No Repubticao, do citizen indeed,who is loyal to his country aud sincere in his desire for economy in administration, and fidelity in public trusts, can reasonably take exception to either of them. The attacks which have been made npon your Representative have certainly wrought him no harm w popular estimation. In fact it is not at all unlikely they have benefited him. There are iu all manly natures instincts which repel with scorn, imputations and asper sions that manifestly have their origin iu meannrtb and spite. And what could be more low and sneaking than the reviving ef old con versations, or the hunting up of obsolete cor respondence, snd the turning of either to po litical account? It is not very creditable to the press that such electioneering staff finds pub lishers. But it is acheeriDg sign ef an im proved public sense of decorum, that if it has any appreciable effect at all, it is favorable in stead of adverse to the assailed party. It seems entirely clear now that Mr. Bristow will have no considerable following In the Con vention uuless it be for the second place on the ticket. His canvass was worked np with great zeal in type and make a prodigious show con sidering bow little substance there was in it. His lieutenants, Generals Burnett and Wilson, deserve credit for doing all that could be done In his behalf. They invested the Union League Club, and a tenth of its members surrendered unconditionally. They organized a “Reform” Society, aud secured the prisoners they took at the siege of tho Club, as picket) t) man their outposts. They issued darning manifestoes passed volumes of resolutions, and did all the things which politicians without » party possi bly could do. But when ,it came to veritable business the performance could not go on for
