Severe on Beecher.

--Rev. H. W. Beecher, of the Independent, in indulging in a philanthropic howl at the Irish emigrants in this country, indulged in a coarse fling at McMaster, of the New York Freeman's Journal. Mr. McMaster thus replies:

‘ "It is news that American freedom, as distinguished from European, means equality for negroes with the white man. Let us, however, remark to the writer in the Independent, that he must be a very late importation from 'Down East,' or he would have been aware that our grandfather was fighting for American liberty against the stories and Indians beyond the Alleghenies, at the time that his grandfather was driving cattle through New England to sell to the British on Long island Sound.--That accounts in part for political differences between their grandsons."
