A great deal has been laid concerning
tae retirement of Governor Bsymond
from tha Times, and tha incoming of
Thurlow Wood u manager-in chief.

gone and intend remaining abroad for a
year. Mr. Weed' only connection with
the Timed is that of an editorial writer or
occasional contributor over hia own signa

tha managing editor since Mr. 'Wilson's
departure, has resigned, and is succeeded
by Mr. Morrison, one of tha ablest writers
on the newspaper press. Governor Bay
mond rettins the active management of
the pa pen and will not permit his Con
gressional duties to interfere with it.
Since Mr. Dana's reeicnation a leaven of
discontent has worked divisions in the old
Tribune office, and changes innumerable
have been made, while the most important
are yet to be made. Tbe chief conspirators
at the time of Mr. Gay's accession to pow
er were Oliver J ohoton, of the Anti-Slavery
Standard, Tbeodare Tilton, of the Indepen
dent, and & U. Gay. Mr. Gy had b ard ly
domesticated himself when he developed
any amount of annovibg fuseinees, and
quarrelled with every body in the office.
One by one the workers left him. Frank
O'Harson resigned, and is now night editor
in the Timet ; Mr. Webb, the librarian and
index-keeper, resigned, anl now occupies a
use position on tbe timet: iiuneay the
fancy writer and descriptiveist, was per
mitted to retire and has gone weet : Mr.
Bogland, for years the city editor, couldn't

Oliver Johnson, finding the Standard a
source of neither profit nor power, has left
and is casting about for a place. lie
and Tilton have put their heads together,
ana witn sundry oiners nave succeeded in
forming a combination who will turn Mr.
Gay into the cold at the next annual meet
ing, while Mr. Johnson, one of the weak
est of the weak, will take his place.
Whether Tilton is hoping to h.ve the po
sition at fome future lime for himself its a
matter of question, as his present field, the
Independent, affords him ample scope.
Tbe Herald jogs along in its accustomed
path. 11 Young Jim" doesn't develop
newspaper talent, but his "Flay Bill,''

lways opposed Davis' harsh treatment of
Union men in Bast Tennessee, and volun
teered to defend Brownlow and others.
It is understood that Governor Pierpont
of Virginia, declines to sign any more rec
ommendations for pardon, as he says that
proper attention has not been accorded to
the recommendations he has already
made. He has recommended the pardon
men like Mr. Anderson, of the Trede
gar Iron Works, who have made large
fortunes out ef tho rebellion during the
war, and who now desire a pardon that
they may enjoy the fruits ot their labors

son does not realize the benefit to the Union
cause to bederivdd from a promiscuous re
