The Saratoga monument association, while it may not enjoy so long and honorable a lease of life as the Washington monument association, is yet becoming venerable in years, and at each annual meeting discuss the progress made in getting the materials ready for the completion of its monument. The chief work now remaining is the embellishment of the great pile with appropriate statues and bas-reliefs, illustrating scenes in that important and decisive battle of the revolution. Sixteen of the bronze bas-reliefs are cast and ready to be placed in the interior of the monument. on the exterior are four niches for statues of the generals engaged in the battle. Three of these will be filled by statues of Morgan, Schuyler and Gates, the fourth, devoted to Benedict Arnold, being left vacant as a silent comment on the treason which forever blasted the memory of his gallant conduct on this field. The wounding of Arnold is, however, commemorated on a bas-relief tablet in the interior. At the meting of the association, of which John S. Starin is president, it was requested that the United States government invite European nations to send representatives to the dedication, which is set down for September 19th, 1887. The gathering of representatives of France and England at such a celebration would be a somewhat peculiar spectacle, tho' time has long ago worn the edge from the old controversy. The prospect is good that the historic field of Saratoga will have a monument worthy of its fame. - Utica Herald.
