Of the four Republican (ldiles published
in New Vork, only ono-t he Terne-.in in i
-favor of Chase, and even Aht one will drop
him and take usp Grant, if tho latter oans be
got to commit, himself eVen half vray to tho
Republican policy. Oreeley is onily waiting
for Grant to deline his position to either' I
carry himi) Into the canvass or to thr'ow him'
off for good. T1hio Times, Post andl Commercial

do anyt hing of the sort, The Heriald willc

for Bonnet was (ho first to hoist his name, I
and Iho says ho will stand by him on his *
personal merits. It is noW uniderstood that, a
JDana's paiper, which is oxpeoted to come I
out about the tirut of Pecimber, will ta'ko I
Grant Oin its Ishou(lders at, once, though the 1
fiest intention of its projectors was to mako (I
it a Chase organ'. All the clamor for Grant
springs solely from the linowlcd'go that, the
people will not support a mani of extremei
views like Chase. With thie eeplion of a|
few like Thuirlow Wood, the loadors would1

is well known, as soon as that date arri,
red, Congress, in strong and elaborate
acts, whiclr have remained ever sinc( iii

language of one of the principals of those
acts is: "Shall impoft or bing tn'y ne
