HANCOCK AND ENGLISH OFFICIALLY NOTIFIED.'
■ New York, July 13th.— The officers of the
Cincinnati Convention have written a letter
notifying General ■ Hancock (of J his nomina
tion. They invite his attention to the reso
lutions adopted by the Convention, the prin
cipal points of the same, dwelling chiefly on
the "fraud" issue." They say his nomina- !
tion was not :■ made alone on account of his
conspicuous , military services, but because
of his services after the war was over in re
storing union and harmony, his : fidelity to
Democratic principles, which the writers are !
assured .will control his administration, and
protect alike the rights of each .State and the
United States, subordinate military to civil
power and do away with sectional agitation
or malice. They close with congratulations
at the bright promise for the future of the
country, and assure General Hancock of their
personal confidence and esteem.; '
A" similar fetter was addressed- to Mr.
Engli.-b, notifying him of his nomination for
Vice-President. It is most complimentary
in tone, both to English and the Democrats
DEATH— VISIT TO GOVERNOR'S ISLAND.
New York. July 13th. — General Han
cock's grandson ' died this ; morning i from
cholera infantum. This depressed the Gen
eral, and the visit of the committee of the
National Convention to tender tbe nomina
tion is in consequence purely informal.
I j English reached Governor's Island at noon,
and was heartily greeted by Hancock. . The
Hancock committee left the New York Hotel
in a body, and with members of the National
Committee and other visitors are now on the
OFFICIAL NOTIFICATION. f
New York, July 13th.— The committee to
notify the candidates arrived at Governor's
Island on a special boat. " They were met by
General Hancock in the parlor of his house,
and* John S. Stockton presented the Chair
man, who read the official notification. Gen
eral Hancock replied briefly, and said he
would shortly write a letter of acceptance.
English was alio notified, ' and made a
similar reply. . , -
•; STOCKTON'S -_____:
New York, July 13th.— General : Stock
ton, on behalf of the committee of the Dem
ocratic National Convention, in presenting
Governor Stevenson, its Chairman, to Gen
eral Hancock this morning, said :
One of the ablest and wisest bodies of your
countrymen ever assembled have given you this
nomination : with perfect unanimity. Since that
Convention has adjourned, we of that committee
have been o'our homes and have seen our con
stituent*. -We have seen the Democratic ma se*
and the conservative |ieople of this country, and '
with one accord they ratify the action of that Con- !
vention. So we are bound to believe, as we do, * hat
your elec:. is au accomplished bet, I have the
honor to hand the Secretary a communication in
writing, informing you '.(-dally of ,ur nomination.
So saying, Stockton handed the Secretary'
of tne committee, Mr. Bell, an address signed
by the committee, after which it was handed
to General Hancock.
In raply the latter said :
Mr. Chairman and tientlemen of the Committee :
1 appreciate the honor conferred upon me by the
Democratic National Convention, lately assembled
at Cincinnati, and I thank you for your courtesy in
making that known to me as soon as the importance
of the matter permit.. I will soon prepare an 1 send
to you the forma' acceptance of my nomination for
the office of President of the United States.
Those present were . then introduced -: to
Hancock in turn, who had a few words of
welcome for each.
Stockton .then, turning to William H. En
glish, who occupied the same position in the
room . where General Hancock . had lately
Stood, said :
The Cincinnati Convention, with a unanimity un
paralleled, appointed us as a committee to wait
upon you at such time and place as wouid be most
agreeable to you, and inform you in |ierson and in
writing of your nomination. I now have the honor
to congratulate ourselves on the event, and to pre
sent loy.-u, on the part of ihe committee, and in
the name of the Convention of the National Demo
cratic party, the official announcement of your nom
ination, which will be read to you by the Secretary.
The Secretary then read the address, after
which English spoke.
REMARKS Off ENGLISH. _ ;.
- Yf. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Committee :
As a practical business man, not much accustomed
to indirection of action or circumlocution of speech,
1 will say plainly and in a few words that I accept
the high trust which you have tendered |me with
feelings of profound grati'mlc, and that I will at an
early date formally and in writing make public the
acceptance which I am informed is usual on juch
occasions. : In doing this I fully realize the great
responsibility of the situation— lhe care, turmoil,
atixiej', misrepresentations and abuse; which are
certain to follow, ami I understand thoroughly that
all the resources and lower of our political foes
from all parts of ■. the land will be concentrated
against us in Indiana, my native Stale, where the
first grand battle is to be fought, and probably the
most important of all ; j but these are great occa
sions, where the discharge of high, patriotic duties
are to be considered above all personal consider*
lions, and I shall not d 82race the unanimous voice
of the representatives of the majority of the Ameri
can people for which you speak here to-day. V Ap
plause } 1 am profoundly grateful for the high
honor which has been conferred, and I have an
abiding faith thai with the favor of God and of the
people we shall succeed in the contest. •
The speaker was applauded at the close of
his remarks, and then followed another hand
shaking between the two nominees on one
hand and those assembled in the parlor. ...
■ Shortly after this the committee and their
accompanying f friends : again i boarded ' the
Fletcher and left the island.

Condition of Senator Cameron.

ator Cameron if Pennsylvania Went to the

from there that he was in very bad health.
A I private letter has just been received in
Washington from the Springs, representing
the Senate's condition as more serious than
anybody supposed. . This letter reads that
his health is completely shattered, and there
is danger that he will not recover. The
writer pn f jsses to have the Senator's physi

Dr. Tanner's Fa. "How Soon Will the j
nil Come?" ;
/•■ New York, July 14th— a. m. —At midnight j
Dr. Tanner, had fasted 15J days. In the
afternoon he was driven to Central Park, and |
was gone about two hours. He was very 1
quiet during the drive. During the day he
frequently munched broken ice. . He appears
weaker and is evidently failing. When he
retired for the night at 'J:3O his pulse was '.'\
temperature 98, and respiration 18.'
'.- Chicago, ? July; 14th— a. m.— The Inltr-
Ocean't special says :" How soon will the
end come," is the question that agitates the
physicians who watch Or. . Tanner. The
opinion is nearly unanimous that he has
almost reached the limits of his endurance,
wonderful as it is.' Up to Saturday there were
many who pronounced him in good condition,
and spoke with some confidence of his ability
to accomplish his task ; but his sudden vari
ations in temperature from burning heat to
icy chills, his increased feebleness and prefer
ence - fur . lying half-torpid and drowsing
on his . cot, his irritability . and
whimsicality, sometimes approaching in
coherency, .when ■ he is disturbed— all
these signs point in one direction. After the
first week of the ■ fast ; many eclectic physi
cians expressed some confidence in his ability
to accomplish his task. : It has been noticea
ble, however, during the last two days, espe
cially to-day, that the electics were giving
up their opinion and admitting that the doc
tor would soon fail. " " I think he is failing
rapidly,'.', said' Dr. : Reilly. ■ "Yea, ,•; and I
think he would ' rather die than take food,"
an^'v-i-'d Dr." .Work. He : has been more
sluggish to-day, and does not seem to know
his ■■■ own :- mind. :, Another bad ; symptom
appeared fi to-day. ' The Tf doctor's :.' hands
and ;' feet looked purple, and *.' appeared
congested. This ■ shows a . feeble * and
retarded circulation. His abstinence
from water is considered even more remark
able than his abstinence from food. .A man
living on an ordinary diet consumes from
fifteen to twenty-five ounces of w.ter daily
in his food,' and from sixty to seventy ounces
besides.'. Plenty of water, as well as salt, are
necessary for , the maintenance of the vital
functions, but " Dr. * Tanner receives water
only from rinsing his mouth, from his baths
and , from [ the wet towels and sponges with
which |be I washes his face and hands. | In
gargling his throat he retains on an average
nearly ia ' drachm ■,' of '.water, . which . has
been calculated . ' to - amount to two
ounces f during^ the - day. . > The amount
absorbed from his baths and sponges is rough
ly estimated at under eight ounces, although
an accurate calculation is impossible. Thus
the whole normal daily amount of water is 7.
to 95 ounces^ ; Dr. Tanner exists on ten. To
day, however,* he abandoned this policy, and
took water in considerable I quantities. The
fast has now reached a point . when methods
of resuscitation me daily discussed among the
physicians at the hall. .
