Chioago docs not illustrate the existence

lation to the Senatorial contest, in lndi-
a: ! .',''.,' ,'
"Governor Morton is io serious-troublo
about the United States Scnatorship.
Several influential Radical papers sre bit
terly opposing bis election, and tbe hos
tility to him seems to be on the increase.
Your Eastern readers will probably bs as
tenshed at this, tho Governor bsing
heretofore considered by far the most pop
ular man in the whole State. But that is
just the trouble. A good many ct our
prominent politicians are jealous or tne
Uovernor s popularity, ana giaoiy prom
by this occasion to stab bim. And then
Governor Morton committed the most un
pardonable crime of indorsing President
Johnson's policy in a speech dohvercd
some fourteon months ago at Richmond,
in this Stale. True, he took it all back
since that time, and he has denounoed
tho President in unmeasured tcrmB.
Still, the matter is brought up against
him, and may defeat bis eleotiqn. At tbe
same time Governor Morton has to s offer
through the hostility of some of the Rad
ioil members of the Legislature from the
Fifth ' Congressional District, lie is
charged with having favored the nomina
tion of-Uonscrvative men in ine various
counties of this district, and with having
opposed the ronomination of Julian for
Congress. Julian, for this very reasoo,
is a candidate for the Senate. He has
grt a sure thing on his scat in the lower
llouae for term of many years, and more
lv talks now of running for the Senate in
order to draw off votes from Morton.
We aro probably going to bavo a most
exciting Senatorial contest.

forever ruined and heart broken by a lio,
