The LondoB Saturday Review, in an article on
American polities, says the selection of General
Grant as the candidate of the dominant party for
the pridency wa, on the part of the extreme
ectlon, a confession of weakness.
Ibe delegates to the Democratic national con
vention from Msesachusetts met at Boston and or
ganised. A resolution to cast the vote of the
dState as a unit for that presidential candidate who
was the preference of a majority of the delegation
was tabled. The action is favorable to Pendleton.
A Washington dispatch of the 11th says : he
programme of the radicals is to pase the freed
men's bureau, and other bills intended to carry
the South for Grant over the president'o veto, and
immediately on the passage of the fourteenth
amenomeut by the Southern legislatures, to order
Seward to proclaim its adoption. Senators and
representatives from these States are to be ad.
mitted befocre adjournment. They don't include
Virginia. as it is conceded she wuald vote Demo
In 1843. it seems, Gen. Grant wrote a letter to a
gentleman who had told him he could easily be
president, in which be said: " That is the last
thing in the world 1 desire. I would regard such
a consummation as being highly unfortunate for
myself, if not for the country. I certainly shall
never shape a sentiment, or the expreesion of a
thought, with a view of being a candidate for
office. I scarcely know the inducement that could
be held out to me to accept office, and unheattat
ingly say that I infinitely prefer my present posf
tion to that of any civil office within the gift of the
Vallsndlgham, in the Dayton Ledger, says:
" As to candidates, this paper is the partisan of
no man for the presidency. Our first choice
for we seek not only the best, but the strongest
man-sa the most decided and ultra ' peace Demo
crat,' being a statesman in the exalted sense of
that word, who can be found. In present clrcum
stances we prefer Mr. Pendleton. We are satis
fled that he is the choice of the Democratio
masses-a small matter, it is true, with the poll
ticians in these times. We believe that with a
sagacious, but bold and manly canvass, he can
surely be elected. Next to him, we are for any
o-_petent man of similar principles, record and
antecedents. As to Chief Justice Chase, we said
some two weeks ago, and now repeat, referring
to the suggestion of candidates from men not
identified with the Democratic party during the
war: No, gentlemen, excuse us. If so hard
pressed for material as to be forced outside of
tee Democratic party for a candilate, we are for
Chase. If there is to be a ' bargain,' let there be
a 'consideration.' If there is to be a 'sale,' let
us have 'value received '-even if paid in ' green
backs.' If, for lack of brains, we are compelled
to fall back on an ' outsider,' let us see to it that
we get brains. But if anything shall reconcile
positive Democrats to Chase, in any contingency,
it is the fact that he Is a statesman.and civilian,
and not a military man, nor yet identified per.
sonally with the exercise of violent arbitrar9
power in the States which adhered to the Union."

h, sing extract: "It is not to be sooposed that
it can have been a perfectly free choice in this
case. It is not to be supposed that in a Virginia
senatorlal district, comprising three large coun
