After the masteily retreat of the

day night, there wore some further
bellicose demonstrations by the loyal,
which, however, ended without blood
shed, and a state of peace having been
restored, his Excellency was permit
tod to resume the brief review of the
hi6tory of "My Administration,"
which had been so frequently and
naughtily interrupted. We learn
that he took occasion to say that no
circumbtances of any nature whatever
could possibly induce him to be a
candidate for the gubernatorial
chair again, which may have
had the effect of obtaining for him a
hearing. Ilis Excellency was follow.

Impression at WashIngton.
We make the following extract
from a letter we have received front
Washington from an acute observer :
The Grantites laughed derisively
at firot. Now-only part of a week
later-they cannot conceal their
Democratic newspapers all over
the country have endorsed Greeley
and the Tribune of to-day is full of
those endorsements. All this must be
provisional upon the Democrats mak
ing no nomination.
Wo have to keep in mind two
points : 1. That the Democrats make
a nomination-Davis, Pendleton,
Ilendrix, or Chase ; and 2d, that the
Philadelphia Convention may not
nominato Grant, and in fact may nom.
As public opinion stands here just
now the friends of the South will
support (,recloy, if Grant only be in
the field against him. That is, both
the anti-Grantites and the Southern
Democrats are willing to sacrifice
everything to boat Grant. Greeley
unites these two.
If either Grant be nominated or aii
out-and-out Democrat be, there will
be a huge muss ; and the South will
not lose in any event.
Rimnoredi Withdrawal of lirant Os a
The Charleston News publishes the
following telegram from WVashington,
under date of May 10th. Of this it
may be said, "implortant, if true."
"It is understood that the adminis

a definite solution of their troubles.

Wednesday Morning, May 15, 1872.
In the light of recent events, we
are amongst those who deprecate not t
only a Democratic nomination for the 0
Presidency, but even the calling of the 0
National Democratic Convention, and t
we give to the public our reasons
The impracticability of a Demo- e
cratio nomination, from our stand. 1
point, springs from the improbability
of success, the chances being strongly
against the possibility of uniting the
Democracy, owing to a differenoe
of opinion as to the policy to be
pursued in the next campaign. As. 9
suming that the Democratic party can U
be induced to support a Democratic F
nominee, we wiii have then three
tickets in the field, Democratio, Lib- t
eral Republican, and Radical Iepub- I
lican, each in itself with a sufficient t
number of followers to make it ex.
ceeding doubtful whether or not eith
er candidate would receive a majority
of all the votes in the Electoral Col
lege, in ublih case the choio of a
President would ret with Congress,
and that body is certain to elect a
RadiVal Republican, s there is every
probability that a majority of its
members will be of the Radicalstripo.
W~hat thon can be gained by run
ning a straight party ticket, except to
be again humiliated by defeat, and f
doubtless suffer a worse denioraliza- l
tion than ever before encountered. 1
Inasmuch as the Demoorney cannoti
hope to win a victory singlc-banded, e
it would be supreme folly to make a
nomination simply for .form's sake,
anid where then the propriety or ne- I
cimity of a Convention, without r
work for it to perform ?
WVe arc firmly convinced that the t
most judicious thing that Democratic o
loaders could do would be to leave t
the mass of Democrats untrammeled
by party dietation, to vote according n
to their honest judgment, and only in v
the interest of a common country and h
Pople. We desire it understood si
that if the National Convention meets li
and makes a nomination, ether than tl
endorsing Greolcy and Brown, we c.
propose to' kick out of the traces. 11
We do tiot wish to appear uidioulous il
by becoming a party to a national fol- ni
ly. We claim to ho engaged in the a
causo of reform and constitutional ib
government, ard it is our purpose to p
pursue that course that will most n
surely bring about the success of that c
cause. Nor do we intend to be led by C
blind fanatics, who seem disposed to tI
butt their heads against a stone wall G
all their lives, and strive after some- ti
thing that can never be reached. Our ns
sole aim politically is to free our coun i
try from Radical misrule and oppres- ir
sion, and to effect that end, w', have w
enlisted our humble services in behalf i
of the Liberal Republicans, headed c
by Horace Greoley and Oratz Brown'.
