Th e Proposed Nicaragua Canal, On the 28th tilt, a treaty -was conoludec at Washington between the United Stat and the State 6f Nicaragua, Centri America, and was last week transmitted the United States Senate for its appro or rejeotion, which is far reaching in il character, and may prove far reaching its results. It will awaken a lively di cussion on both sides of the Atlantic, be- cause it will afiect the interest of all com- mercial nations, particularly England an Prance, and because it practically abro gates the terms of a treaty already existini between this country and England. By the terms of this treaty the Unitec States Is pledged to build, with all pos. sible despatch, a ship canal suitable for the demands and requirements of com- morce, to begin at the port of San Jua do Nioaragua or Grey ton and to interseo the San Juan river above the Bio Colorado and thence by the river San Juan to Lab Nioaragua and across that Lake to th< mouth of the river Delmadio, and thence to tho Eaoifie ocean at the harbor of Brito. In consideration of this undertaking o the part of the United States the Bepublii of Nicaragua is to cede and convey to th< United States of America right of wa through her territory, along and across the water highways thereof, and in ad- dition thereto, in perpetuity, a strip land three miles wide on each side of Hie said canal, together with the ports an harbors of San Juan de Nioaragua or Grey- ton and Brito, respectively on the Atlanti and Pacific coasts. The absolute owner- ship, control and management of the oanal.is to be in and and exercised by the United States. If this project could be successfully and peacefully carried out it would be an in- calculable advantage to the United States, as it would give ua absolute control of great waterway and perhaps the only waterway between the Atlantic and [Pa- oiflo oceans, giving us great advantage in time of peace and still greater in case of war. Two great powers will object to this. First, France, because she has already be- gun a ship oanal across the Isthmus of Panama, which would be ruined if the Nioaragua canal were made a euooess. It Is beginning to be doubted whether De Lesseps' Panama project oan be made to succeed. More than seventy millions of dollars have been expended, and it i s not one tenth completed. Probably three hundred millions would be a reasonable estimate of its cost. The highest total es- timate of the Nicaragua oanal is one hun- dred millions. Great Britain's objection oomes in a dif- ferent form. Somo thirty or more years ago we entered into an agreement with England, known as the Olayton-Bulwer treaty, that neither Great Britain nor the United States shall obtain or maintain exolusive control over any inter-ooeanio oanal in Central America. The treaty has always beea considered by many as in con- vict with the principles of the Monroe doctrine, and there has always been a grow- ing hostility toward it. * * It in claimed that Great Britain long since violated the spirit of the Olayton- Bulwer treaty in its relations with our government, and nearly two years since Secretary Frelinghuysen gave a formal notification .to Great Britain that this gov- ernment no longer considered the provis- ions of the treaty binding upon it. T£e discussion of this treaty and its bearing upon our foreign relations will be a fruitful topic for months if not years to come. It is not likely that the Senate will take any hasty action on a question involv- ing suoh great interests, although it is high time that the world is given to understand -that the Unfed States will act independ- ently of ail foreign powers in its inter- course with the independent governments of this continent. Evarts for Senator. In a letter elsewhere published, Hon. Wm. M. Evarts announoes his willingness to become a candidate far United States Senator. The letter is commendable for its ingen- uousness. He has nothing to disguise. He would like to represent the Republican party in the United States Senate, and it is for the Republicans of our Legislature to accept or reject him. Tbe simple question is whether another gentleman could be found in the State who would represent our party more ably or more acceptably. Wo think not, and we sincerely hope, that our Members and Senators will go straight for- ward and elect him. Washington Topics. —The joint commission iu charge of tbe Washington monument reports tbe cost of the monument at $1,187,000. —The present session of congress prom- ises to be an uprofltable one for the lobby- ists. So far no fat schemes Lave been broached. —A street oar in Washington in which were a number of congressmen collided with another, badly bruising some of tbe occupants. —The bill appropriating $50,000 for the purpose of erecting a statue to the memory In the Hands of the Philistines! \Publish it not Gath, tell it not Askelon, lest the daughters of the Philistines re- joice.\ How often history repeats itself. When the ancient Israelites came up out of Egypt, mixed multitudes came with them, and they were beset by that troublesome nation, the Philistines, who often caused Israel to sin. • The Republican party, whioh had its birth with the nation, descending from the Federalists, then merged into the old Re- publican party, then into the Whig, and again into Republican, has brought the country up out of bondage. But it has ever been beset with the Philistines, at whose hands it has suffered defeat. But what a grand history the Republican party has made f«r itself. It was stirred by the spirit of the old Revolution in the late war, and went forth to battle inspired by the consciousness of right, and by the prayers and labors of its mothers and sisters, singing our nation- al songs, seeking direction from the Most High, till crowned with success. And was there ever such magnanimity shown to a fallen foe as was shown by this party—conferring blessings upon those who sought its life that they had never enjoyed before, establishing schools and ohurohes, opening up the country to general im- provement, and taking the slaves as wards of the nation ? The Republican party has done much for Sa; tvermore, \When it commenced its oareer, there were not a dozen employments open to women; now there are nearly three hundred. Only one college open to them—Oberlin; now there are one hundred and fifty-three. Woman has full suffrage in three territories, and partial in twelve states. Tne medical, le- gal, and to a large extent the clerioal pro- fessions, are .open to them. So alBO is the lecture platform. They are serving in post offices, on boards of health, charity and prisons.\ Even Mary Miller i3 cap- tain of a steamboat 1 Ail this has come about through Republican influence. Whatever gain has been made in tem- perance legislation, and it is not small - has been the work of Republicans.\ All this should have been crowned by electing James G. Blaine to .the Presiden- tial chair, f man of whom the nation might well be proud, and against whose public oareer of twenty yesCrs, nothing could be said. Even the Mulligan letters prove nothing, and to impartial minds they but add to his un&ullied fame. His opponents had to descend to his private matters to make capital for themselves. But these Philistines t bat came up, as of old, are here Btill, and %ere here in our last war, when in their convention they declared the war a failure; and in the re- construction of states, threw all manner of obstacles in the way of this party. Had we not had a Stunner, a Stephens, a Wilson, they might have even led the hosts back ETABTS FOR SENATOB. A Letter to Senator Arkell Announcini His Candidacy. H e Enters the Race in Responi Requests from all Paris, of tlie !.__ —Hts Position UII the Issues of IJh Situation. Special to the Albany Evening Journal. OANAJOHAEZB, Difo. 22 —The followin) letter wan received to-day by Senato James Arkell in reply to a request tha the Hon. Wm. M. Evarts would allow th< use of his name as a senatorial candidate to Egypt. Mr. Blaine is a strong man, strong for tbe right; nerved by the brightest intel- lects of the land in his own family, its very atmosphere is redolent with progress. These lying Philistines were at work while Israel slept. The Philistines did not fight the battles of Israel; they revolted against the government while Israel was fighting, and made themselves gods, and gloried in their shame, and drew many of Grod's people in with them. So now, how many so-called Independents have gone >ver to the enemy, and aided in the elec- tion of one of the Philistines to be the head of this nation, which is an insult to all virtuous womanhood. I have lived through seventeen Presiden- tial campaigns, and never have I seen a candidate so maligned, so abused, as James Gk Blaine. As of old, when Israel sinned, they were punished by an inferior nation, (which mad a it more humiliating), till they put Sin away from among them, so it is now. This land is guilty of taking bribes till all parties have become corrupt. As in the days of Samuel, ' 'whose sons walked not after his ways* but took bribes,\ the people seeing there was no justice, chose them- selves a king. And what has been will be igain. Is not this nation drifting towards k monarchy ?\ A LOOKEB-ON FOB MOBE THAN HALF A CENTTTBY. of General Senate. Lafayette ban passed the A Grand Scheme for Canada. In a speech at Toronto last week Sir John Mncdoiiftld favored an imperial alli- ance between England, Canada and Aus- tralia with Canada reserving the right to manage her own affairs, but the alliance to be sort of a confederation to keep tho peace of the worJd and to league together for offense or defense in time of danger. Such a confederacy he said would bo the most powerful in the world. Ho was opposed to independence. We could not keep it up. As for annexation we would be lost in the neighboring union, where as it was only by there being more than one power in North America by competition in the gov- ernment that we could pre ent boooming like China. t the contin- Polltieai Topics. —Gen. N. M. Curtis has the support for >r the speakership of the Republican raem- sr in the Beoond St. Lawrence district and the two Jefferson members, thus giving ax four out of the five members in the mgressional district in whioh he and Mr. rwin reside. —The New York Tribune makes a fresh calculation of the vote for President, dis- buting the Butler vote in the^ several tates where there was a fusion ticket as courately as may be, and makes a plural- ;y for Mr. Blaine in the whole country of ,876. It says that if there could have en a free and fair vote and an honest ount in all the States the vote of the coun- ty would have about like this,—Blaine ,000,000; Cleveland 4,900,000; all others 50,000. —The Utica Herald thinks Mr. Eyarts' lection as United States Senator from New York \neither impossible nor improbable,\ although he will make no canvass. \There is not a Republican in the State,\ says the Herald, \who will deny that Mr. Evarts, beyond and above everybody else, would most honor the Empire State in the Feder- al Senate. More than that, if Mr. Evarts should be eleoted, there is not a Republi- can in the State, nor in the nation either, for that matter, who would mot be proud of the fact and prompt to admit that this empire commonwealth bad, by his election, honored herself and benefitted the nation to the largest degree of her power.\ —A conference of several of the Repub- lican Assemblymen of the Fourth Judicial district was held at Oanajoharie on the 18th, to talk over the U. S. Senatorship. Among those present were Wesley Humes, of Essex county, Gen. N. M. Curtis, of St. Lawrence, and Messrs. Briggs and Giiffen, of Saratoga. All accept Mr. Briggs said they would not give a pledge to vote for any candidate for Senator or Speaker until they reached Albany. Mr. Briggs said he was pledged to Mr. Erwin for Speaker, and was inclined to Mr. Morton for Senator. Information was received from Mr. Palmer, of Clinton, and O'Neil, of Franklin, also declining to pledge themselves until they arrive at Al- bany. Another Explosion. Attempt to Blo w Up a n English Kail- wa y Station. A fire occurred in the railway station at Windsor Saturday afternoon and was ex- tinguished in the ordinary course without having caused alarm. It was found in putting things to rights, however, that the fire had originated in the explosion of a machine which was packed in a box sup- posed to contain merchandise, and some braes wheels and bottles containing explos- ive material were discovered in the debris. It is believed that the plan was to blow up the parcel office, but that the force of ma- terial used was overestimated. A Methodist Clergyman Missing. Rev . Ittr.

Mr. Thompson, of Grace Methodist Episcopal church, Brooklyn, left hid resi- dence oft the 7th inst, to visit a friend liv- ing a mile away. After staying a short time with the gentleman whom he called to see, he left the house suddenly and since that time he has not been seen by any member of hiB family. He came to New York and sent a telegram to his wife asking her not to let his absence occasion her any uneasi- ness as he was about to attend the Metho- dist centennial conference whioh was to be held in Baltimore on the following Friday. From the receipt of the telegram all trace of him has been lost. He was not present at the conference and as he was expected to have delivered nu address there his ab- sence was noted with surprise. Tho fact being made known to his friends they at once set about to discover his whereabouts, but all efforts in this direction have failed. Pinkerton'a detectives in Baltimore were employed on the case, but with'equally fruitless results. Senate Proceedings. NBWYOBK, Dec. 20, 1884.-To Arkell. MY DEAR SIB—In response many enquiries and requests made to m< from all parts of tli'e state, I take the lib erty, in thia form, of making public mj readiness and desire to be considered among the candidates for election by the Legislature, as a senator from this state. In asking the favor and support of Re publican senators and assemblymen fo this distinguished and responsible repn sentation of this great state in the Senat of the United States, I have no occasion t< qualify or restate the principles of the Be publican party or my o^n hearty accep tance and undoubtiug maintenance ol those principles. The Republican party, in its declaration of its opinions and pur- poses has never used lauguage obscure unoertain or framed iu double sense. li the laBt appeal of the great political par ties to the popular suffrage, especially th< political sentiments and cardinal objects of the Republican party have been pre- sented to the country without conceal- ment or dissimulation. In this last, as in every earlier struggle to maintain the su- premaoy of the Republican policy in thi government of the country, I have giver every aid in my power to the support oi the polioy, the doctrines and candidates ol the Republican party. Tha general sense of the Republicans o: this state looks upon the senatorship, now open to election, as of unusual importance. They regard this as important to the great political and material interests of this state. They regard it as Important to the whole body and array of the Republicans of the oountry, in the place and share that the senators of this state shall take and main- tain in the increasing warfare with the De- mocratic party, in Which every Republican is enlisted and which will be persisted iu until Republican polioy and Republican statesmen shall regain authority in congress l g and the presidency. In this critical juncture in the affairs of the oountry, and in the interests of the Re- publican party, I am desirous to fail in n o duty on m y part towards the welfare of the country and the prevalent authority of the Republican party in the national govern- ment, which I deem inseparable from that, welfare. I have no doubt the legislature will treat the duty before them with an en- tire devotion to the highest and best inter- ests involved in the election of the senator, and I submit to their judgment the ques- tion whether these interests can be better served by myself or by another. I am, very respeotfully, Your obedient servant, WM . M. EVABTS. N OTICE.—By order of David F. Doble, Sur- rogate of Clinton County, N.

Another Ice Structure in Montreal* Prom the Montreal (Canada) witness. An ice condora, or cairn, is about to erected under the auspices of the East End Winter Carnival Committee, on the Champ do Mars. The structure is round, tapering to a point, its base diameter measuring feet. Its height, without the colossal statue, is 75 feet, built in a series of seven stories, finished up with a crown, and is intendi to represent one of the old Egyptian cas- tles, which were named condoras. In thi construction of this cairn 12,000 blocks ice will be used, for whioh Mr. Henault, this city, has the contraot. On the top most block a colossal figure will be placed about 11 feet in height, dressed in thi costume of Le Trappeur Snow Shoe Club and holding in one hand a torch, the latte lighted at night by electricity. The electri light will also be used to illuminate thi cairn from the inside. At the inauguratioi it is the intention of the members of L< Trappeur Club to stand at stated distance! all over the outside of it on every available block of ice, each man having a lighted torch in his hand. Tho structure is flankec with eight turrets bearing the flags of vari ous nations. IT IS FOOLISH To send for the doctor every time you don' feel just right.
