'.,'���������"  THE LAST NEW AMERICAN MINISTER  v    ;       TO GREAT BRITAIN.    -*-" '  Uncle Sam seems to find it a hard job to  jret a Minister to; the Court of St. James who  will suit the ideas .of American politicians'.  ' Exp or! e rice sh o ws th at tbbu gh antic d wi th  desperate jnstvn ctions on starting;, living in  London for a short time has a decidedly Anglicising: 'effect -        K-v .-:..  * The Sacramento Union describes the latest  ���������-. appointed gentleman as follows:  Oliver P. Morton, the newly appointed Minister to succeed Motley at the British Court, is  n native of Indiana, in the prime of life, being  but forty-seven, and of Western Statesmen in  the 'Senate a prominent'leader .for the last  three years.   It is generally understood that  upon the Alabama question he ts of Sumner a  opinion, and indorses the great speech of the  Massachusetts Senator, in .which Englnpd is  hold to moral responsibility for tbe acts of  the-private^esse!s she.permitted to bo fitted  out in her ports against American commerce.  At all events he will move for an immediate  settlement of the question -in dispute, and not  allow it to drag at the pleasure of the ������������������British  Foreign Office as Motley has'done, nor sanction a p ro to col w ho 1 ly d ictated b y Engl i sh -  men, as was done by-Reverdy Johnson.   The  New York papers all speak of tho fitness of  :the appointment, and of the breadth of Mor-  ���������ton's statesmanship as qualifying him for such  a mission.   The Hera ��������� d says :  " 0ur conn try  does;not possess a man of larger views or  more finely cultivated intellect, of greater  fo ree ��������� of char ac te r an d re fined dig ni fey."   It  'thinks him pre-eminently the man for the  present crisis in European affairs."   The Tribune pays him similar compliments ; and the  'Chicago' Tribune, which "ia well qualified to  pronounce upon the merits of the appoint-  ���������merit, thus all tides to it:       .   '  ���������' fn selecting a Minister to Great Britain  ���������the president lias been <m ore than usually prudent.   He has notlield the office to bestow it  in any sense  as a mere compliment or������as a  rewardfor political.services.   He has sought  the best men in the country in order to obtain  a suitable person for the grave responsibilities  of the post.   Fortunately Senator Morton has  made the sacriGee which others declined, and  has accepted the -responsibility -which he is so  ��������� competent to meet.   There are few men in  public life his equal in .ability ������&<! vigor of  ..*>������4silccL' The Ainericius ,W lias.&rjuii e|05������rl  for over five years, and our affairs with Great  Britain,'growing out of, that war, renvaln. unadjusted. During the.present year, Great  Britain h as re vised her iieu trality 1 aws, ani  has provided stringent regulations governing  the buiiding and fitting out of. ships of waiter belligerents. In fact, the new code is a  confession that she was grossly derelict in  duty, and clearly responsible in law, for the  departure of tho'Alabama and other AnglO-  rebei corsairs, and for their subsequent ravages on our commerce. It is time that a new  effort be made to:bring that case to a closed  Let ns have a plain demand, for settlement,  and, if England so elects, a plain refusal to  pay. ' Governor Morton will go to London  bearing with him the views of the administra ���������  tion and of the country> demanding a speedy  settlement of the Alabama and other claims,  and we believe that he, will be.able to accomplish such a result in a manner satisfactory,  at least, to his own government. The appointment; will fee.acceptable to the whole country. For a mission so important at this time,  it was advisable to have ability, experience,  coolness, and thorough.. knowledge of the  matters. involved, and in these particulars  Senator Morton ranks among the. highest of  our public men/'  "This is. Morton's first diplomatic, office.  He has never had a seat in any Cabinet.  His 'pub lie p osi tions have beeu,! fi rs t, ' Lieu t.-  Governor, and then Governor of Indiana for  two terms, and then .United* States.;Senator,  in'which last office, he soon took a leading  position in all the prominent; questions of the-  day ; as Governor of Indiana,:in the critical  times of the civir#atsand in"that capacity  did good service to the Union cause. In 1865  he suffered from paralysis, caused by the arduous labors of his gubernatorial office, but  is now rapidly recovering, his health; He  will leave m December for London. :���������  doings. No impediment was ^thrown in the  way of their invading Canada at ditferent  p o i o ts. o tie a t a n i n te r va 1 o f som ed ays after  the other, mid it was only after they were  driven back and their enterprise was evidently  hopeless, that any alacrity was shown in scattering them. Had they boon, victorious on  Canadian soil, the opposition from the Araer-  i can aul h o ri ties wottkt n o t pro bn bly have  been so active as the support of their friends.  Aud now the small measure of fidelity to international comity ,which was shown in convicting and sentencing a very few of them, is  nullified by the President on the eve of tho  fall elections in order to secure Fenian votes.  ���������[Montreal Witness.  MISCELLANEOUS.  Amono the many scenes on the battle field  which are now cropping up in every newspaper, the following, from Figaro, is worth  reacling : ������.* 0u the morrow of the battle o f  Gravel otte a decapitated countryman was  found by the side of the body of a Zouave  offic er. It was only b y atten ti ve"! y, exaini ui n g  the position of tlie two corpses that an explanation of this singular, discovery was elicited.  The countryman, it was found,; was a marauder, as a lantern by his side corroborated.  Not bein^ able to undo the belt of the officer,  which contained a round sum in gold, the  marauder attempted to cut it, and in so doing  stuck the knife into the officerV stomach',-���������  Now,"' the Zouave, it would appear, was not  yet dead ���������/[ he. had only fainted. Suddenly  'jumping tip; he must have seized the thief by  the-head, and with one blow of his 'sabre:  ���������beheaded him." ,..'������������������������������������'.  ...  THE PARDON OF THE FENIAN  RAIPERS.  The pardon by the President of the Fenian  Raiders, after an imprisonment of some four  months, is announced, Jbeing only what most  anticipated, and what these raiders have probably been assured of from the first According to this news, the crime of organizing upon  American soil to irivado a peaceful and  friendly country wilh fire and sword, ia sufficiently punished, in the President's opinion,  by letting all the subordinates go free and imposing a nominal fine and three souths? imprisonment1 on a few of the leaders. If Great  Britain gives equally homoeopathic satisfaction for. the Alabama claims, what will Americans say ? And yet who could rightly blame  her for treating the matter of tho Alabama's  escape fro m her Jurisdiction quite as lightly ?  America i nsists on an apology from Britain  for recogi lising tho belligerent rights of tbe  South, after tho Confederation had possessed  an organised government, and. levied war  for months, and after the North itself had recognised those rights ; but it appears to us  that an a>oology is much more urgently required for allowing the sworn and openly  avowed enemies of Britain and Canada to organise loir years on American soil aud invade  Canada twice.'  A former Fenian invasion, which had resulted in the murder of some of Canada's best  son.B, was neither hindered nor punished by  the  American authorities, and yet after that I  experience the raiders of 1870 were in no way  iniemrp ted whon co 11 ecti n g their munitions  o f w ar al I al on g in e  fro n tier, n o r Inn d <* re d I  front* mustering aud organising thi������n\nlthmijrh !  the- -whole 0nIU&aI was ringing with their ���������  \ASDDLtitE; Cour aglimine speech of the  Fieri ch ��������� Minister o a the o ccasio n of the b u rial  of the Sisters of Mercy waselbquent and moving.

SATURDAY, KOV. 19, 1870.?
; If; we can place dependance on the latest
telegraphic intelligence, the curtain has fallen
on the first act of the great sensational drama
which has set all Europe in convulsions.
: Ah armistice has been proclaimed���an in-:
ietiudo!between the acts ��� arid when the curtain rises again what' will be the first scene ?
Tragedy or comedy���peace or war ?   Will
: Bismarck and Favre, Trochu and.VonMoltke,
King William ^and  Thiers,  be discovered
���quietly sipping their wine and cracking their
Walnuts after dinner,'or will it open with the
thundering roar 'and glaring flashes of Teutonic cannon pouring their iron bail upon the
devoted forte encircling Paris, gallantly and
fiercely responded to by the artillery ,of tbe
Mill iiinconquered Gaul ���? . .
'Such isthe rapid course of events in the
present age of progress that even with all the
information we have now to guide us it is b'e-
joud human ken to prognosticate the result
We have nought inaucieut or modern warfare
to guide us. -The science of human-destruction has steadily advanced towards completion
.from the time when Tubal Cain first fashioned the sword and apear till the present
as^e, .when Mitrailleuse and needle-gun and
���Chassepot belch forth their deadly contents
with murderous speed ' and accuracy. We;
.read ot even in modern times a thirty years7,
war, with its accompanying campaigns, bat-;
ties, sieges and blockades, but a single cam-;
paign now is equivalent to a war of the last;
century.' Four months ago the 'summer sun
���shone brightly on.the dancing waves of the
blue Moselle and the mojestic Rhine ; the
:goldeu fields of waving grain and tho trellisedj
-vines, with their incipient clusters of ripening5
fruit, gave promise. of peace, happiness and;
plenty ; but now let us look at the samel
eceoe, and where gaiety and contentment then!
reigned wo sec misery and ruin ; the black-':
sited walls of- villages and farmhouses, the
trampled down fields, the-uprooted vineyards,:
point out where in so brief a time  has been
waged the fiercest and most majestic struggle,
.for supremacy which Europe has .witnessed*
' *mce the days when Goth and Hun poured
their barbarian hordes over the fertile plains
of France and Italy.   Pride and ambition
gave the signal;  the sword was rashly u a-!
fjheathed ;  and what have been the results?
Step by..step the indomitab! e T euto n < has
fought his way from the banks of the Rhine
���to the walls of Paris,   Brave but unavailing
has been the resistance,of '��� the Gaul.- Town
after town and fortress after fortress.haye siic-
<5Uinbed. . The famous Strasbourg,:- the' supposed impregnable Metz,: have fallen \ t\yo
���mighty Varmies, comprising nearly a quarter
of a mijlioh of .men, have laid down their
arms; and the :anginai;or~QftallHini'tnGB^y

.The returns from Keithley creek arrived at
Richfield on Sunday, showing a majority for
Carrall of three, and on Tuesday from Ques-

seven and six respectively for Booth. The
returning officer, Hon. H. M. Bali subsequently
gave notice that the official declaration of the
poll would be made at Richfield at 11 o'clock
yesterday, and the candidates, with a large
delegation of their friends from Barkerville,.
started to hear the result, but owing to a
difference in time between .the'* Barkerville
and Richfield oloeks, arrived about five minutes too late���the returning officer having
already declared in presence of five persons
that the-Hon. R. W. W, Carrall had. been duly
elected by a majority of 24���thus disappointing a good many who had gone to xRichfieJd
in expectation: of bearing a little eloquence
from both the successful and unsuccessful
candidates. The official return is as follows:' :: ���-,'*  "".

Incredible as it  may appear'to many, Republican America is  w on d er f u 11 y; affected. poll ti c al ly, by ev en ts:  becurririg in Monarchical Europe. A striking  instance of this fact has been obtained; in tlie,  county, and municipal' elections which have  lately taken p 1 ace. The repub 1 ican party, as  a body accepted the;Prussian situation as be-  in g th at of, the su p p osed p ar ty o f prog ress,  while ;the democratic party, which, is composed chiefly .of the sons of Erin, took a  French view of things., The soft heart of the  good-natured and easily-imposed-upon German was taken by storm by. the universal  sympathy of his political opponents, the republicans, causing bim thereby to immediately desert bis own beloved"{democratic  ranks and vote the other party?s ticket, the  natural sequence being that of a grand repub-  iican victory. Republican Jonathan congratulated Mein Herr. Fritz; on .the, brilliant stior  ; cess of the'Prussian arms in Europe and ��������� cm  the new alliance formed between him and the  repubiican: par{y in America, tippin<jLglasses  and drinking Mein Herds particularly, beloved beverage, lager.

The main object of this correapo������dence.at  first was to lake an imaginary trip  for the benefit of those of your readers who  intended visiting the Atlantic side this fall,  and not to recite anecdotes. I am afraid that  it; will, bo rather late now as the season is  pretty far advanced; however, ray leisure  has been so exceedingly limited lately that it  would have been impossible for me to have  done so sooner.  The total distance from this city to New  York by the shortest rail route is 3300 miles,  which is now traversed by express passenger  trains in six days and thirty hours. Emigrant  trains occupy eleven days in the transit. The  Central Pacific, the only line leaving San  Francisco, connects at Ogden, SSI miles distant, with the Union Pacitic, 1032 miles long,  running to Omaha, and with the Utah Central, 36 miles long, running to Salt Lake City.  O m ah a is the term i nus of teu r I i nes run ning  to Chicago and one lice���������-the only direct one  ���������running to St. Louis and all points east,  south-east and soulh of that city. The distance from Qwaiia to Chicyg^ dUO^-Ucs, M i  trolling more than. 5200 miles .of. rail...'.In trav-.  el ing on this line no changes are made; an 4  sixty .mires' travel also saved or' avoided,;  which makes it one of .the-most.popular fov  pverlanders. ��������� It passes through the centre ������f  Indiana, Ohio and Pen njyl v an ja, crosses tha.  Alleghrimes, and passes 'through a country of  varied scenery and unequalled ��������� grandeur.   It  is also the most direct an^, shortest:;route to-  Phiiadelphiai  Baltimore^   Harmburg,   and  Washington City. .   ./,...  ���������   The second line leaving Chicago is a com*  binatiori of the Michigan Southern arid- JJatoi  Shore to Buffalo and the Erie Rail way or New -.  York Central to New York, passing through  to - Toledo, O hio, Cle vel and, Buffal p and - Bl������ \  mira.   Those persons wishing to visit North*  cm Indiana, Southern Michigan or Central;  New; York will find this the most pleasant and;  convenient route for that purpose. .The other1  line which leaves Chicago is made up of thu������,  kichisan Central, Great Western,of Canada,  kjsjew York Central and1 Hudson .River Rail.  roacl.
