none there. In the evening, when the
k Associated Press bulletin dispute!*,
announcing simplv: "lildon nominated
on eecond ballot," was received,
it was *ent up to the Executive mans
idon. There were present with the
Governor, Comptroller Robinson,
H'n'o Engineer Van Union, and four
or flvo other friends. Mr. Newell
took tho dispatch and rend it aloud
to tho Governor. "Id that b> ?" he
inquiied in tho calmest tones, with
n<it oven a sn ile on bin countenance.
N Subsequently the following diapatch
wao reeoivod:
8'r. IjOuib, Juno 428.?Gov. Samuel
J. Tilden: I congratulate you on your
enthusiastic Humiliation. Kentucky
will moit heartily endoiso you with
her 40,000 majority.
Jous 0. Undrrwopd.
Lieut. Govornor of Kentucky.
This wan also read to the Govornor,
who then exhibited sings ot interest,
and inquired if any ono know what
v the vote was and what tho platform
contained, but no ono present did.
The Govornor then drew four or
five of thoso present about him, and,
ip a tone scarcely abovo a whisper,
nflid* UT Win toll vein voliat lioo linnn
dbno. Tliia nomination was not made
by tlio leaders of the party. It was
tlio people who made it. They want
reform. Tlioy lmvo wanted it a long
while, and, in looking abont, they
4 liavo bocomo convinced that it ie to
bo found hero (pointing at himself.)
Tboy want if; tljat is what tlioy are
after. They nro sick of tho corruptions
and maladministration of tlieir
affaire. Ttiey want a change, and
ono for tho hotter?a thorough reformation.
You will find thoro will ho
a larger Gorman vote pulled next fall
than over, and it will bo largely cast
lor tho Democratic ticket; I know
that.

ry oxcitod almost universal admira* (
tion for its display ot organizing pow- i
cr, tnct and ability. "Air. Tildon is (
undoubtedly tho best organizer in this ;
country," said Payne, of Ohio, to day, I
and that is tho common verdict, to f
which many add significantly that
this very ability ta ovgani/.e and to
avoid miatakos will bo groat power in
tho campaign. Conversation with Des
mocratic members from all over tho
country discloses everywhere eoufi- r
deuce of victory in November.
"Is tlio ticket acceptable to tbo
South?" wan asked of prominont South
orn Democrats lrom every State, and
tho answer invariably caioo back,?
"Why, of courso it is; just what wo
wanted, and tho voiy best that could
bo named." .Randolph Tucker dcclars

for Tildon from tho Lono Star Stato.
Singleton is exceedingly pleased with
tho nomination and says thoro Is not
tho elighcst doubt of tho Democrats
carrying Mississippi. In Alabama it
is tho sumo. Senator Gordon and
Representative Blount laugh at tho
idea of tho Republicans carrying that
Stato. Tho Republicans have intimated
that thoy would cany Florida,
and for their comfort Senator Jones
remarks that ho wishes he was as
certain of some other desirable things
in tho future as he is tWht Florida will
go Democratic in November. Yeatts
and tlx' North Carolinians aro as well
satisfied as the rest, and while they
say the light will be close there, feel
confident of victory. The Virginians!'
say tho Democrats may count on old I '
Virginia. Judgo Faulknor says that *
there will be no trouble in West V?.
Blackburn, enthusiastic an sanguine,
says at loa.st ;~>tjmajority lor Tils ,
don in Kentucky, and even Couscrva- t
live Boone says MO,000 majority Mire, ,
Missouri promises :}0,000 at least. ,
Oregon 51)0 to 2,1)00, and tho Calilornians
are confident. Some ot the
.Southern members lavorcd Hancock
bocauso thoy knew lLcndrieks would
take tho second placo with him and
(eared he would not tako it with Til- 1
den. Sincc ho has taken it they doclaro
almost to a man that tho ticket
is tho strongest possible, In the West t
the fooling is much bettor to day than i
it './as yesterday. Hendricks's nomU |
nation lor tho second place, and the (
knowledgo that tlio Cincinnati 10 n- |
qniror would light for tho party, al- (
though it does not liko tho candidate,
liavo groatly oncouragod the Democrats
in Indiana, Illinois and Michigan.
Hamilton, of'Indiana assorts that 1
his State will snroly clcct Williams 1
over Ortl. by 10,000 at leapt in October.
and It is evident confidence lma
greatly inspired others, Springer of
Illinois, in reply to questions, Haiti,
ho wonkl simply plodgo tho Illinois j
Democrats to do their best, but he
would say that they would poll tho (
heaviest Democratic vole ever cast ,
in JLIInois, and .somo even of tho Ohio
men aro declaring that they will at (
least keep (iov. Hayes to a very small
majority in his own Slate. Willard,
Republican, of Michigan said to day
that the nomination of Tilden and
Hendricks has made Michigan a
doubtful State, while his l'emocralic 1
colleague, Williams, gave it as his
opinion that the 1 >omocrut8 would car
ry Michigan. xno eastern Democrats i
aro fairly jubilant. '^Now .forsey is
oortain to givo Tildon 12,000 to 1
000 majority,' said an earnest workoi
for Governor Parker's nomination.?
Tho Now Yorkers from forty thousand
to sixty thousand, according to
cifcumslanccs. Connocticut Democrats
aro wreathed in smiles. Tho
Massachusetts .Democrats aro talking
hopefully of whooling tho old Hay
Stato into the Democratic line, and the
enthusiasts aro drcaminir of oven can*
luring Maine. Such is Llio foolito
day among representative) Democrats
from Maino to Texas and lrom KlorU
da to Oregon. The Republicans admit
sorrowfully that the Democrats
have not blundered this time, say thoy
havo nominated tlioir bos-man, and
ni*o ovldently frightonod. The action
of tho Cincinnati*! Enquirer in dctorni

Scotland may well bo proud ot Lh?Jistinguished

liangs a little gem that tilled mo with
inexprosaiblo Badness; the millions
passed it by unnoticed, and yet it was
from the pencil of one whoso name is

jasel of Sir Edward Londseer. Thero
Aoro many pictures inoro pretentions,
jut not one i i tlio vast collection
noro truthful than this humble offerng
from 0110 ol England's greatost
.ainters. (Jo!d and silent now, bofond
the reach of the plaudits of tlie
.vhole world, I would remember the
?roat artist only as he 6tood in tho
nide of his manhood and the zenith
)t his lame. It filled me with grief
inuttoiablo to think that tho cun-?
)ing linger that guided his magic
)oncil should clutch at last tho in a?
liae's straw, and perish bohind tho
jars of a mad man's coll.
Albeit l'eerstadt is represented by
wo of the grandest tviurapLs ot his
ife?a view of the big trees of Mar~
posa, and his lnagnificont picturo of
iTo6oinite Valley. It is a grand conieption,
grandly worked out in the
lonest spirit ot a genuine artist; but
n another room liangs a Yosemito
Valley, by Tbos. Hill, of San Frisco,
>vlncli, to my thinking ia one ot tho
loblost picturoa in tho Exhibition. 1
iave been there; I have heard tho
nighty roar of its tremendous wateralls,
and sat boueath tho shadow ol
huso eloiuKi caching, granite hills
.hat look like the walla of heaven. 1
lave watched tho mist aa it rose
hrongh those wondorons aisles and
jcon rocked io sleep by the sighing
f tlie pines that sounded like an an?
jjel'a wail; and in all tho grand essen*
;iala that ?ro to make ud that wild
Mountain landscape; 110 artist, living

Next 111 merit comes his Donner
Lake, looking so calm and beautiful,
nestled away among tho mountains
and yet indis8olubly connected
with ono of tho saddest acts iu the
whole of onr American history, llore
perished forty emigrants in 1S4G, and
tor week? the fow that survived lived
on the bodies of the doad. Take
hear*, young artist, wherever you are
ns you look on the^e grand pictures,
worth thousands and thousands of
dollars, and romemberj no matter
bow poor you are, that ten years ago
this very July day, Thomas Hill was
pint as poor as you are. As an artist
iio was entirely unknown to fame,
find lie labored in his little studio on
Montgomery street, San Francisco,
tor hardly enough to keep body and
soul togethor. These were indeed
days of sutlering and probation. If
bib beart sometimee Hugged, bit artist
aoul was full of strongest pnrpoae,
and after years of toil to day, amidst
the collected genius of tho world, bis
works are almost without a rival.?
Here, too, aro some of tho ino6t glorious
Mosaics that over the oyo feast

a Jersey man on his way lo the Exhi

at the grounds to go to tho building
of your State and register your nntno
and addroef, ho that your friends can

tor the Jersey Stato building, and on
reaching it looked around at bin

very pardonable prido, and said,
what do you think of this? Tho

and my friend from Aroostook inquired
of a policeman tho wny to tho
Maine building. The polite official
immediately pointed to tho structure
which stands on tho right of tho gato
and faces Machinery Hall. Tho
Maine man brightened and g ?vo a
contemptuous look towards his Jersey
neighfc *r; but to mako sure, ho in
quired again of another ollieial at tho
door 'It this was tho Maine building'^
Tho ottieial blandly assured hitn it

grasping his Jersey triond by tho
