New York Continent: It is sad and
stranse that, while the country was ex
pecting to hear at any moment of the
death of its greatest soldier, its most
famous sailor should have been so sud
denly stricken down. In David Dixon
Porter there passes away another of the
foremost commanders of the war between
North and South, in which he won a
naval renown second only to that of
Xew York Press: David Dixon Por
ter was the Sheridan of the navy. In
deed, he combined some of the strongest
traits of both Sherman and Sheridan, fcr
to the former's quick perception of pro
babilities, intelligent urasp and general
energy, he added the latter a supreme
dash and the special audacity that dic
tates daring surprises in pursuit of what
is known as the "fighting chance." The
aggressive and the active, rather than
he deliberate and logical temperament,
does not always achieve the success at
which it a ms, because human foresight
is imperfect; bat its very audacity is not
infrequently an element that turns the
scale from failure to success. And all the
wurld love a tight r who takes ricks
when good results are possible, while it
wearies of him who waits for a sure
thing before he moves and acts. It is
said that Admiral Pi.rter nevrr punished
a man for excess of ardor or zeal, eyen

than that which separates Sherman from
Grant. Farragut was made of sterner
stuff than his associate, and was cost in a
stronger mo jlu, yet none, not even he,
surpassed Porter in courage, in ener-rv,
iti resolution, in resource, or in a certain
breezy alerrncs that seems to belong to
the true sailor as the deep blue belongs

Cor,. Foksytiie has been vindicate. i
by the president for the blunder at
Wounded Knee, notwithstanding Geh
Miles' charges of incompetence, overcon
tidence av.d blundering responsibility for
t;ie death of many soldier and killing
f defenceless squaws. There maybe
politics in that decision, but it could
hardly be called good sense. Jour
The foregoing fr.m the pen of our
bombastic neighbor furnishes a pretty
fair estimate of the democratic editors'
ignorance and dishonesty. Col.Forsythe
was vindicated by the court of inquiry
General Miles named to humiliate him.
I nat report was in due course of time,
forwarded to the major general in com
mand of all' the armies of the United
States, General Schofielc!, a strong demo
crat, whose opinion was published in full
in the Associated Press dispatches, that
the Journal man reads and from which
he learned that General Schofield had
vigorously- commented on the 'evidence
of the Wounded Knee fight and had com
pletely vindicated Colonel Forsythe.
Theso findings of the commanding gen
eral of our armies wm approved by Mr.
Proctor, secretary of war,5 arid that is all
the politic there was in it.' It only re
mained for a reckless, brass mounted
peny-a-liner in charge of a democratic
heet to inject politic and President
Harrison into the affair.
