Monday ffif Zr. August 19, 1873. A Troy ©a that the Barnard trial Las resulted* o - conviction of the Judge on nearly aE charges brought against him. * It is propL_ y the Liberal Republicans 2nd Democrats of Massaohnsetts to make Charles Francis Adams their candidate for Governor. The Bourbons are having bad luck at the r ntset with their nominees. All but three of Ihe gentlemen honored hy the True-Blue Convention at Wayne, Michigan, last week, decline to train with that crowd. Senator Scljurz has returned to St. Louis, ■Where he will remain quiet for a week or ten days for recuperation. He will then speak at several points in Northern Indiana, and Afterwards visit Ohio. President Grant, it is now said, has concluded that, in the event of a re-election, he can allow his present Cabinet officers, with cne exception, to retire to private life. Thin announcement will hardly save him from defeat. The President’s letter, declining to avail himself of the invitation extended hy the Chattanooga people, is published elsewhere, it is a well-written paper, considering His Excellency’s want of practice in inditing ictters of that claas.|— It is said that the crppet-hag fraternity aie becoming somewhat unpopular in Texas, Governor Davis being decidedly so on account of his bare-faced violation of State Jaws. The Legislature of that State will probably impeach him when it assembles this fall. The religions disturbances at Belfast, Ireland, continued on Saturday and throughout Saturday night. The populace is divided Into hostile Catholic and Protestant mobs, snd whenever they come into contact a fight as sure to ensue. A large number had been bounded up to last accounts, but no deaths Lad been reported. There are now six ships with Sellow fever on board at anchor in New. i T ork Bay, within twenty miles of the city, The Health Officer claims that no new case Las appeared on any of these vessels since their arrival. Every precaution is taken to prevent articles from being thrown into the harbor, even the ashes of an infected steam* er being carried thirty miles and dumped Into the sea. Our colored citizens in some parts of the country seem to take naturally to the Ku- Klux business. Tabba Gross, tbe popular colored speaker of Arkansas, has made arrangements to speak on political topics in Covington, Ky., to night. Mr. Gross, who is Stopping in Cincinnati, was roused from bis Led at 2 o’clock yesterday morning, and informed by a delegation of colored men that he would consult bis safety by quitting tbe town at tbe earliest possible moment. He T*as also informed in Covington that be ■»s ould not be allowed to speak. Tbe colored :en may possibly be ignorant of tbe rights bat belong to a free American citizen.

They send documents throughout the North and West, showing up IMr. Greeley as an original S eceseionist, land life-long Pro-Slavery man, While for Southern digestion they send clown loads of documents representing the Liberal candidate for the Presidency as the original Abolitionist who always hated slaveholders, and who prought on the war for the purpose of destroying slavery. In Free Trade localities, Sir. Greeley is painted as a Protectionist of the most uncompromising kind, while the Pennsylvanians are told that he is a radical Free-Trader. What if some of these documents should be misdirected. The Simon Pure Democrats held what they ■are pleased to call a mass convention, at Fort Tnd., on Saturday. The mass was ", twenty-five persona, collected rparts of Madison County.

The immaculate twenty-five adopted a set of resolutions in which they repudiate the action of the Baltimore Convention, acquiesce in, and at the same time condemn, the Constitutional Amendments, and favor the nomination of A. P. Edgertou, of Indians, by the Louisville Convention for yice President. Peruvian advices furnish a detailed account of the recent short-lived hnt bloody revolution in that country* Gniterrez, who, with the army* seized the reins of Government, and declared himself Dictator, commenced hy imprisoning Balta, the lawful president. This act was succeeded hy a reign of terror both at Lima and Callao* Soldiers filled the streets and fired indiscriminately upon the inhabitants. The troops, soon tiring of their bloody work, began to forsake the usurper, and he was finally left without a supporter. He made a desperate attempt to escape, Jant was caught, executed, and his body liung to a lamp-post. Guiterrez’s brother, iiearing of the Pretender’s death, stole into the prison where President Balta was conjoined, and murdered the latter in his bed. IThe murderer had barely quitted the prison Jjefore he was seized hy the populace, murdered, and every indignity offered to the corpse. Yet another of the Gniterrez brothers was murdered, and the bodies of tbe three were immersed in kerosene and burned In the plaza.

WHAT IS BEING DONE WITH THOSE REBEL ARCHIVEB-HOW CHANDLER'S BLACKBALLING COMMITTEE IS GETTING ONWHY SENATOR HARLAN BECAME AN EDITOR. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. Washington, Aug. 18.—When it was stated in these despatches, at the time of the purchase of the Confederate archives by the Administration, that the principal object in obtaining them was to fire the Northern heart with stories from the darkest days of the rebellion, and with especial view to give a one-sided history of Greeley’s peace negotiations at Niagara, the Administration organs were swift to deny thefcharge, and still more positive to assert that these documents were only bought with a vfew to protect the Treasury from fraudulent claimants. Nevertheless, when, in overhauling these documents, which work was done by the Administration Campaign Committee, at the Capitol, one was found which, It was thought would have the least bearing upon the present campaign, either in creating prejudice against the Liberal candidate, or in reviving threadbare sensations of the rebellion, It was immediately placed in the hands of reliable partisan correspondents and telegraph* ed hence to all parts of the country, and It is now certain that the Administration purposes to continue to fight Bit out on this line of misrepresentation and calumny. The Republican Congressional campaign rooms at the Capitol. are lull of circulars, ingeniously gotten up and selected with especial view to the geographical sections of the country. One set of circulars, which go North and West, make Greeley out an original secessionist, still in favor of disunion, and of paying the Rebel war debt, and pensioning the ex-Confederate disabled soldiers. Still another set Is sent South, wherein Greeley is . not only one of the earliest and fiercest of Abolitionists, upon whom especially rests the responsibility for tne whole war, but who also at the present time is one of the most bitter and unrelenting enemies of the section; and there are appeals to the financial and commercial classes intended for those whose politics are limited to their business interests, wherein Greeley’s financial heresies are exposed, and all his utterances for the last thirty years on any of these topics are tortured and fixed up to suit the occasion. He Is made to be a Protectionist In Free Trade districts, and in Pennsylvania is declared to have sold out to the Free Traders. But all the above business is honorably compared to an undertaking lu which the Campaign Committee is now engaged. Several of its industrious detectives are now engaged, under official permits, in hunting up the records of prominent Republicans who are now supporting Greeley. The departments were scoured, while General Kilpatrick was stumping the State of Maine, to find something that would tell to that officer’s discredit either in the army or as Minister to Obill; but in this instance nothing could be found. Now there has been trumped up a number of scandalous stories which have found their way to the State Department, while Cassius M. Clay was Minister to Russia, and these will be sent out as soon as they can be placed in the proper stage. It is also contemplated in the same manner to make up a military record for Banks, as has already been intimated by one of the Administration organs here. What other names are to blackballed does not transpire, as the capacity of the Zaok Chandler Committee for this kind of work is only limited by the time between now and the election. General Banks having been informed that in case he took the stump for Greeley that this record would bo published on him, has oaused it to be understood that he has no objections to having any part of either his military or civil record made public. Just exactly why Senator Harlan went into the newspaper business has always been more or lees of a puzzle to everybody. It is now stated that Harlan has political aspirations, and not only has an eye on, but has been given to understand that, in the event of Grant’s re election, and a consequent reorganization of the Cabinet, he may possibly have the portfolio which Secretary Fish has been so long anxious to resign. As a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, the defeated lowa Senator has been in lull accord with the San Domingo project, and it will be remembered that, with the exception of Morton, he was the only member of that Committee who sought to excuse Grant's interference with the domestic affairs of that island. THE LIBERAL MOVEMENT IN WISCONSINTHE GERMANS ALMOST A UNIT FOR GREELEY AND BROWN-SENATOR TEUMBALL AT MILWAUKEE. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. Milwaukee, Wls., Aug 17.—Senator Trumbull arrived here at half past 1 to-day, and was met at thej depot by Hon. G. H. Paul, Chairman of the liberal State Committee, Emile Wallber, Esq. Secretary, Messrs Larkin, Weil, Fink, Rindskoph, Palmer, and many other prominent citizens. The German Turners were also on hand with their band, which played** Hall Columbia.” The Senator proceeded to the Flanklnton House. whe>ehe passed the afternoon in receiving nnmer ous calls from prominent Liberals, many of whom wereleadingmeninthe late Republican party, but who have no sympathy with the monarchists, commonly known as the Grant party. Men having leng acquaintance with the politics of this State, and who arb noted for their caution, exnresed great hopes of carrying Wisconsin for Greeley. Grant’s majority was over twentyfour thousand, and, until recently, the Grantites have felt themselves impregnable, but recent developments have rendered them exceedingly nervous. They feel that they have been sawing the limb off betwixt themselves and the tree, when they find opposed to them such staunch old Republicans as Hon. Wilson Graham, General F. H.WesfiPresident of the Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Coleman,'of the Daily Herald, Colonel Amos Sawyer, and the larger part of the German Republicans, not only in Milwaukee, bat throughout the State. An estimate of the German Republicans, based upon a partial canvass of the city, places about three-fourths of them lor Greeley now, with a strong tendency that way, so that in November he will probably receive tbe bulk of the German vote in Milwaukee. The change In the German vote alone will be sufficient to carry Wisconsin, and there is also a great defection in the Scandinavian vote, as well as among the old Abolitionists, and that class of men generally who are independent and think for themselves. There are three German papers here, all of which are for Greeley and Brown, and about one thousand German Republicans have openly declared themaelves in the same way. Notwithstanding an unpleasant evening, the Academy of Music, in which the meeting was held, was filled to repletion. Not leas than 3.000 voters were present, and many could not get in. Colonel Vila*, of Madison, led off in au eloquent speech, in which he showed the absurdity of supporting Grant’s relatives and bummer companions in idleness and luxury simply because Grant was a successful General Senator Trumbull followed in one of his most powerful efforts. He compared the Cincinnati and Philadelphia platforms, showing the first to he in the interest of the people and the last in the interest of Grant. He made the point that tbe Philadelphia platform claimed that the country was saved by the Republican party, while Grant, Sherman, and Thomas were all that time Democrats, and the country was really saved by the loyal people of the whole country. He closed with an eloquent peroration, advising all independent men, whatever might have been their antecedents, to vote for Greeley and Brown. During the speeches the platform was occupied by many of the most prominent men in the State, about half of whom have heretofore been prominent Republicans. Both the speeches were frequently interrupted by outbursts of applause, and the meeting closed amid the mostenthuelaslo excitement, Tula county la expected by shrewd judges taglve Greeley about 7,000 majority. MEETING OF THE TRUE-BLUE DEMOCRATS AT FORT WAYNE—A QUEER MIXTURE OF POLITICAL ODDB AND ENDS. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. Fort Watne, Ind., August 18.— The Bourbon Democrats of the Ninth Congressional District met here in mass convention yesterday. About 2 o’clock a procession was formed, nnmberlng’jnst twenty-four men. Tbe Keintz Band, paid for byJQrantlfces, was on band, and after parading the streets assembled at VOLUME 26. THE CAMPAIGN. consin. bama. Ideas of Free Speech. Hamilton's Hall. A political dead-beat present employed on a Grant organ in tlie southern part of the district, named “Worcester, was called to the Chair, and the farce of appointing Secretaries and Committees, andfiadoptlng resolutions, was [ «one through with. The Bourbons, Grantites, and Greeleymen, then in the hall, about 100, were addressed by one W. 0. Moreau, of Madison County. This man is said, by those who know him, to be in the pay of the Grantites. His was rented, his bills printed, and thoroughly circulated, and his puffing done at their expense. , His speech was coldly received. Hla abuse of Governor Hendricks and the Democratic State ticket bad the effect to determine many honest and sincere, but reluctant, men to support Greeley. It convinced them that this move on the part of its leaders was utterly Insincere, dishonest and corrupt; and has no higher motive than to seive Grant and to re-eleot Morton to the ■ Senate. • Morean again spoke in the same hall at night to an andienoe (drawn there by music) of about three hundred, mostly Liberals. The Radical leaders here having discovered the bad effect of his reckless and incautious speech in the after* toon, required him at night to speak with more reserve concerning the State ticket. The audience btrhaved respectfully, but they could not I resist the temptation of giving hearty cheers whtn Gieeley’s name was referred to as the Democratic candidate for President. After the meeting had adjourned and dispersed to the street, the Greeley men, after repeated and hearty cheering for Hendricks end Greeley, called loudly and persistently for Bon. M. O Kerr, candidate for Congressman-at- Large on the Liberal ticket, who was present to address them. Mr. Kerr did so briefly. He said that he cherished both respect and kindly feelings towards all sincere and honest Democrats, who. In their reluctance to suoport Greeley, are honest with themselves and their neighbors, and controlled by convictions of duty; but for the corrupt men of all parties, who make merchandise of honor, principles, and influence, and became the hired and base Instruments of others, as bad as themselves, he had no respect whatever. He earnestly appealed to all good and patriotic Democrats and Bepubllcaus to watch well the conduct of all snob vile men and deceivers of the people, and expose their unmanly attempts to mislead, under the false pretence that they are better Democrats and purer patriots than others. He then sprke of their baseless and shallow objections to the Cincinnati platform, and the action of the Democracy at Baltimore.. He expressed great gratification on account of the fact that so very few of the Democrats of old Allen preferred to seek counsel and sympathy from defenders of the present corrupt Administration rather than to take advice from their own State and National Conventions, and from the three millions of fellow-Demoorats throughout the country. BThe whole affair of the Convention was one grand lizzie, and it is the opinion of the best men here that this political scheme and farce will do the Democrats and Liberal Eepublicaua more good than barm. • The following resolutions were adopted by the True-Blues: Resolved, By the Democratic party of Indiana, that we repudiate with scorn and indignation the corrupt bargain at Baltimore, whereby the Democratic party was handed over to a handful of dleaffeoted Radicals, headed by Horace Greeley. 2. That while as law-abiding citizens we accept the amendments added to the Constitution by the party in power, we still condemn and hold as infamous the Illegal manner by which their adoption was secured, and will not join hands today with the authors of that infamy in a paltry scramble for office. 3 That we favor a tariff forreveune only; that we regard as vicious and oppressive the whole theory of protection, and therefore cannot support for President the moat violent advocate of that theory, 4. That the delegates to the National Democratic Convention at Louisville, are hereby instructed to oast their votes for Hon. A. P. Edgerton, of Indiana, for Vice President, 6 That Samuel Clem, of Allen County, and J. Worcester, of Delaware, be appointed to the Louisville National Convention, and as many of the Democrats of the Ninth Congressional Dls- ] trlot as can attend and aot as contingents. 1 THE POLITICAL OUTLOOK IN ALABAMA— J THE STATE SAFE FOR THE LIBERAL t CANDIDATES. 1 Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. • New Tobk, Aug. 18.—Governor R. B. Lindsay, c of Alabama, is here on business connected with railroad matters of that State. He says, regarding the political situation: " 1 firmly believe the Electoral votes of Alabama will be oast for y Greeley, but the struggle will be hard and close. The two parties, Demooratio and Radical, are very nearly balanced. Two years ago I was elected Governor by a majority of only about I 10,000 out of a poll of over 150,000 votes, and yet a I received. 8,000 more votes than h Horatio Seymour received for President e two years before. Siuoe my election \ many whites have emigrated to Texas, I and not a few negroes have emigrated into the 1: State from North Carolina and Virginia. Nev- . ertbeless, I believe Greeley and Brown will oarry the State by a larger majority than I did. ’ The stay-at-home voters who, in 1870, failed to i: vote, and wbo numbered over 16,0C0, were mostly * Democrats. This year most of them will vote. «. In the three counties that contain the largest \ number of white Radicals, Mobile, Madi- t ton, and Dallas, there are a goodly number of T Liberal Republicans. The Radicals have nom- * Inated a formidable State ticket. Not one of their i nominees for State officers is either a carpet-bagger or a negro. Perfectly sure of the carpet- ♦ bagger and negro vote, they have selected men of c long residenoelnthe State and of moderate views, ) in order to catch as many white votes as possible. \ The Democrats are going to support Greeley al- , most cn masse, believing this to be the best thing , they can do under existing circumstances, and f as the surest means of getting rid soon of unoon- ♦ etitutional Congressional interference in State r affaire. I know of but one Alabama Demooratof T prominence bent upon supporting a straight-out , . Democratic ticket for President (Major Robert- \ sou, of Huntsville). I very much question f whether a straight-out Electoral ticket will be i run in Alabama, even should the coming Louis- . ville Convention nominate lor President Charles J O'Conor. The Democrats of Alabama cannot ( afford to contribute to tbe re election of Grant by ( voting for candidates who have not a ghost of a , chance of election.” , ■ l GRAND LIBERAL MEETING AT WXLMING- * TON, ILL. j Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. 1 Wilmington, 111., Aug. 18.—The grandest po- i litlcal demonstration that has occurred during j the present campaign in this city took place on , Friday evening last. A torchlight procession of < 05 men, with music and beautiful transparencies, 1 paraded the principal streets in martial array, and halted, finally, on the corner of Jackson and Water streets, where a speakers' stand had been erected and appropriately decorated. A cannon . belched forth a National salute, and the people from the surrounding country came in from all sides and in every conceivable manner. At 8:S0 the President of the meeting, John 8. Jessup, Ebo., introduced our candidate for Cot gress, the Hon. G. D. A. Parks, of Joliet. His ] speech was what might have been expected, the , master-piece of a great master. Judge Parks was followed by Hon. J. L. Breckenridge In a 1 stiring appeal, touching the viral questions of l the hour. Major General O’Neill next appeared , amid deafening applause. He fired the hearts of his countrymen with zeal for Greeley and Brown in a manner that words fail to describe. In a word, the whole affair was a grand, enthusiastic success, notwithstanding the lying despatch in Saturday's Inter-Ocean. A few demoralized Grantites made several ineffectual attempts to disturb tbe gathering. The procession might have numbered many more had torches been provided. 16 is estimated that at least two thousand adnltfcersona listened to the speeches. Our Greeley and Brown organization is now perfected, and we propose to move immediately on the enemya works. THE LIBERAL MOVEMENT IN JACKSONVILLE. Special Despatch of The Chicago Tribune. .

New York, Aug. 18 —Mr. Greeley returned to 1 New York at half-past 7 this morning, and was at once driven to the residence of a friend, where he will remain in seclusion for several days.

The heart of the people is ours. The honest opinion of the people is with ns.

New Water Works—Fair Cronnde-Flne Accommodations. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. Mansfield, 0., Aug. 18.—The City Water Works are about completed, and several tests have been made. A number of pipes have burst, but have been replaced. The formal opening of the Water Works will not take place till after the State Fair, but there will be an abundant snpply of pure spring water throughout the city and Fair Grounds during the fair.

New York, Aug. 18.—The Paris Figure publishes the following as a letter addressed by Prince Bltmarok to his wife, after the surrender at Sedan: VEHDREBSE, Sept. 3. Mv Dear Heart: Day before Yesterday, ere the break of day, I left these quarters. To-day I return. Yesterday morning at c o’clock, after having remained till 1 with H- de Moltke and the French Generals, deliberating on thefloonditlons of the capitulation, I was awakened by General Bellle, who came to me to say that Napoleon wished to speak to me. Without washing or breakfasting, X got upon horseback, rode towards Sedan, and met the Emperor, accompanied by three Aides-de-camp, in a cernage with six horses waiting in the road. I got off my horse, saluted as politely as at the Tuileries, and asked what were his orders. He said that he desired to see the King. 1 answered that His Majesty was three miles off. He asked me where he should go, and, as I did not know localities, I offered him my quarters at Donohery, a little village on the banka of the Meuse, at a short distance from Sedan. He accepted, and resumed his way with hla escort, conducted by myself and Charles, who had joined me in the morning, at a short distance from there. Iu expectation of an agglomeration of cations people, be asked me if he could alight at the little house of an artisan situated on the road. I had it visited by Charles, who reported that it was poor and unclean. “ Jj’iniporlc,” replied the Emperor, and we ascended tne narrow tottering staircase. The room was ten feet square, with a deal table and two straw chairs. We remained there an hour, the Emperor and me. The escort stopped below. What a striking contrast to our last interview in 1867, at the Tuileries. Our conversation was difficult, for I did not wish to speak of things which wonld painfully affect one who had been overthrown by the hand of the Almighty. I had sent to Sedan in quest of some officers, and to beg M. Moltke to come. We after: wards sent one of the officers to reconnoitre, and discovered, halt a league off, at Frccroie, a small I chateau with a park. I conducted the Emperor therewith an escort of Cuirassiers of the Guard, which I had sent for while waiting. It was there3thatwe concluded with General Wimpffenthe capitulation, in virtue of which from 40,000 to cy.oco Frenchmen, with all they possessed, became onr prisoners. It is a victory for which we should humbly thank God, which decides the war, even should we be obliged to continue it against France without an Emperor. All ate well. Yours, _ ?• On Aug. G the ex-Empresa Eugenie and the Prince Imperial, with a numerous party, started at 9 a. m. to make the ascent of Ben Nevis. The first part of the Journey, up to the lake, was accomplished by ponies, and tne rest of the ascent, 3,c00 feet, had to be done on foot. After inneheoh at a spring, half-way up, the arduous task was undertaken, and the highest peak of the mountain was safely reached at 4 o’clock. There the Empress, the Prince, Count Clary, and Lord Abinger dined, several other parties who had made the ascent along with them picnicking not far off. A splendid view was obtained, there being not a cloud in the sky. The whole party arrived at Banainle shortly before op.m, the Empress looking none the worse for her mountaineering exertions. _ Sottih and Central America. New York.

Memphis, Ang. 18.—Later advices from Bradley’s Landing are that, soon after the Helen Brooke atrived there with a trading boat, a man named James Trumbull wenc on board, and toeing drcslr, commenced, trifling with the machinery. Captain Fatt ordered him to desist, to which Trumbull replied with opprobrious epithets, and threatened to throw Patt overboard. Patt took np a shot gun and ordered him off the brat. Trumbull went before ’Squire Watt and swore out a warrant, aoouaing Pa tt with retailing liquor without tv license, and the latter was arrested by a colored Constable, and taken before the Magistrate. His wife, leaving her infant with two women on the boat, accompanied him. After waiting until nearly daik. Fall’s brother, fearing trouble, took the boat over to Island No. 40. and made fast to the shore. That night, Downing, the colored Constable, Trumbull, and a man, called Bans, took a skiff, pressing two negroes into service. ordering them to row across and land above the steamer, which being done, Ches Pote, one of the negroes, says that, on landing, Downing and party ordered theuLto remain quiet under penalty of death. Downing and party then crept cautiously toward the boat, which they boarded, and soon after a loud cry was heard, then several shots in quick succession. Ghea then saw them pursuing Captain Patt’s brother, who had jumped ashore, and firing on him. Whether he waa killed or not, he does not know. Paltwas the only one seen by Chee, and he thinks two other men, one of whom wae named Robinson, two women, and three children were killed and tbrow overboard. When Ches and his partner were called to the boat, they saw nb one but Downing, Trumbull and Hans, who broke into the bar, and the- entire party! got drunk. Ches rfmembera nothing more until the boat was landed by a fisherman as stated last night, when be Jumped ashore and made hie way back to Brady’s, where the wildest excitement prevailed, as nothing had been seen of Patt and his party, while Downing and his party had also disappeared, and from the fact that the boat has been plundered, it is feared the whole party have been murdered. _ Attempted Harder The Perpetrator Lynched.
