j .ie Friends of Governor Hoffman, o
New York, have certainly behaved verj
handsomely in withdrawing his name ai
a candidate for the Democratic nomi?
nation for the Presidency in 1872. Tbt
New Yo.k World, the New York Tele
gram, and other New York papers tuoal
emphatically endorse the action of tin
sachems of the Tammany Society, whe
have deelared through their organ, th?
New York leader, that Governor Hoff?
man is not a candidate, and that New
York desires the candidate to come from
the West; which appears tobe, bj com
mot, consent, the wish of the party,
'judging from the D?mocratie member*,
of Congress and others who visit the
! Capitol. The leader goes further and
j most warmly proclaims ex-senator lien
dricks, of Inc ians, as its choie* for the
nomination. This action on the part
of New York or Tammany, which po?
lis ?cally ia New York, virtually settles
(bat the Democratic candidate for tba

more reconstruction, as the only means
of keeping the ."outh fro? throwing
their vote solidly for the D?mocratie

Tolumes of kuklux ?ad rebel atrocities

of the President, has prepared a Hst of j
all the murders and outrages committed

well to have a list of all 'be murders

during that period. I opine the differ?

case would reconstruction be the remedy
for the North ? The worse the condi?
tion of thiogs at the Sou'h, the plainer j
it is that reconstruction is a failure, or
it would produce a better condition of j
affairs. Reconstruction has sei ved to

but I am not sure that they will re en?
act that game ; the recent elections is a
