The recent Democratic Cor.vention, so-called,
which assembled here, hs-s borne fruit. Whether
it is of the Dead Sea order or hot, remains to be
tested. Upon the Republican platform, to the
extent of conceding qualified "suffrage to the
colored man, clubs have been organized in
many localities ia every one of-the twenty-four
districts represented in that convention, and
the' wort still .goes on. A-very considerable
number of-tho respectable colored men of Co?
lumbia have 'likewise formed a Democratic

localities.. . The members, know each other by
a peculiar sigh and password, and it is design?

ander, "a bonnie Scotchman," anda most esti?
mable citizen. It is believed that, notwith?
standing his services for the Confederacy dur?
ing the war, a majority of the Republicans will
sustain him. In like manner the Republicans
irill sustain Major D. B. Miller, the present
affieient clerk of the court. The tyranny of
[raidie opinion hounds him because he has al?
io wed hi s name to be used by "the niggers" as
i candidate. Yet Major Miller carried the first
company from Columbia into active service, and
(sa cripple for life from the wjunda received.
His record on the Southern side of the house
is as good as that of many of his fellows, while
in the Republican side it seems to have been
bis misfortune to have acted in such good
Saith towards the colored people as to secure
iheir respect and support. He is tabooed for
LUowing colored Republicans to vote for him,
?hile his enemies axe doing their best to get
bqually colored Democrats to vote for them?

Republicans will "go in and win."

THE mUM TIAL CONTEST-STRENGTH OF THE
CHICAGO NOMINATIONS-THE DEMOCRATIC CAN?
DIDATES-SPECULATIONS-CHIEF JUSTICE CHASE
-GENERAL GRANT AND THE POLITICAL CAM?
PAIGN-SHE GENERALSHIP OF THE ARMIES.
The Washington correspondent of the Balti?
more Sun writes, under date of Sunday night:
The Chicago nominations and the platform
attached thereto have, during the past forty
eight hours, been discussed by the leading
representative men assembled in this city, and
already laid aside, for tho time being, to can?
vass the merits of proposed nominees bf the
Democrats and Conservatives.
The general verdict as to the Grant and Col?
fax nominations is that they are the strongest
that could have been selected from among the
candidates. As, however, General Grant was
the only candidate for President, the judgment
dose not amount to much as applied to the
head of the ticket; but the verdict is fairly ap?
plicable to Mr. Colfax, who has the faculty of
cohesion, of making and keeping friends,whilst
his mest formidable' competitor, Vf ade, is re?
pellent, and succeeds in making some of the
most uncompromising enemies.
Speculation to-night is rife with regard to
the probable nominees of the convention to
meet in New York on the 4th of July. The
leaders of the Pendleton interest have been
here, during the past ten days, taking a view
of the situation, and the friends of General
Hancock, in considerable force, have been up?
on the ground to compare notes and look over
the field from a national standpoint. Ardent
admirers of Seymour, Hendricks and Adams
have also been amongst us, but not in such or?
From a thorough interchange of opinions
between the gentlemen representing or sup?
porting the above-named proposed nomm?es,
it is found that there is entire unanimity upo.i
one proposition, namely : That in order to se?
cure the nomination to the person who may be
generally conceded to be the most popular
among the entire Conservative masses (Demo?
cratic and Republican ), the special interests of
each particular candidate, and the preferences
for them, shall give way, and all shall cheer?
fully unite to secure the most available candi?
' One of th e prominent candidates has himself
written a letter to a friend in this city, in
which he takes this ground, and adds that if it
shall be found that in the Convention some
other candidate is the preference, even by one
vote, he desires that his friends promptly sup?
port that preferred man.
in this comparison of views another fact is
discovered, namely, that Chief Justice Chase
would receive the hearty support of all these
factions, and is always mentioned os their
second choice at least, and among the most in?
fluential Conservative men- here there has
started up quite a formidable party in favor or
the nomination of ; Chase and Seymour, or the
latter refusing to permit his name to go before
the Convention, then that George English be
nominated for the Vice-Presidency. This ticket
to-night seems to be the accepted available
combination, and beside the various arguments
presented in its favor, it is urged that Judge
Chase could carry seventy electoral votes from
the South ; that he would receive the entire
Democratic vote, and would command more
conservative. Republicans and disaffected Radi?
cals than any other person that could be nomi?

Sit as pur? and high-toned as General Grant
ve been compelled to endure invidious re?
marks by the public press before to-day, and
now that General Grant has voluntarily con?
sented to mix in the muddy pool of politics, he
cannot complain if his garments become soil?
ed. The fact that he bas determined to take
no formal part in the canvass cannot alter bis
position as a candidate for the suffrages of the
people, and. of course, his merits and claims
io the position to which he now aspires will be
discussed as freely and unreservedly as those
of any other candidate.
; Some of the Norther a Democratic papers
have commenced calling on him to resign his
position as the commander of the armies, hold?
ing that it is manifestly improper for him to
retain it in view of the cir cums tances now sur?
rounding him. General Grant has, however,
determined, in accordance with his own feel?
ings and the ad vic? of hie friends,' to do no?
thing of the kind. He will follow the example
of Gen, Scott, and will not surrender his com?
mission until after the November election, nor
then if he shall not be the successful candidate
for President. As an evidence of the high re?
gard entertained for him, bis friends in Con?
gress have not only counselled him to this
course, but have promised to keep the place
of "General" warm for him until airer he has
served out bis Presidential term, when he will
peacefully step back into his old shoes. This
nice little arrangement is predicated upon the
supposition that the party HOW in power is to
have a perpetual lease on the government.
Tgy. STAB CHAMBER INVESTIGATION.
The New York Herald, of Saturday, in its
Washington corresponde ace, has the follow?
ing statement in relation to the Pomeroy dis?
closures before Butler's inquisition. Alluding
to the letter mentioned in Colonel Cooper's
testimony, and which Butler admitted was in
his possession, and also to Pomeroy's denial of
the authenticity of this letter, the Herald's
correspondent says :
This evening Pomeroy was asked for an ex?
planation, but had none to give beyond the
mere derna! of not having written such a letter
as Cooper had sworn to. Cooper's charge was
very explicit, and receives strong color of sup?
port from a document which will very soon be
made public, of anterior date to the letter
in question, signed with the genuine auto?
graph of S. C. Pomeroy, and promising in
case a certain office was placed at the dis
?osal of a certain friend of Pomeroy's,
3 at he would support the administration, vote
for all nominations, and vote against impeach?
ment if it ever came up before the Senate.
Either the story must be true that he tried to
exchange his opposition to the President for
certain executive favors, or that he conspired
with Stanton and Butler to draw the President's
friends into a trap, in the hope of drawing tho
President after them. The denial he makes of
never having written the letter is a very safe
one, for the reason that Gaylord, to whom he
gave it to show to Cooper, never allowed it out
of his hands, and, having failed to accomplish
its object, was m all likelihood torn up, thus
destroying all trace of the transaction. Batter,
if he was redly sincere in advancing Radical
interests, should never have put such a ques?
tion to Cooper as to draw forth the damaging
answer it did. Thad. Stevens was very much
annoyed, and said this morning that aU their
work was undone by this course of examina?
tion; that none but a tyro in law would pro?
pound such a question to a witness, and no
Copperhead could wish for a better answer
than what was recorded.
GRANT'S LITTLE SPEECH-THE TRUE VERSION.
The Washington correspondent of the Bal?
timore Gazette says:
There is an evident disposition on the part
of enme public tourna ists to criticise the
speech made b General Grant when serenad?
ed oa Friday evening. This is unk nd towards
the agent of the Associated Press h re, who
revised and remo oiled the speech beiore
sending it over the wires, it b-lng the first
and only speech which the Radical candidate
for the Presidency ha-, ever made, it was due
to the co m try that it should ba faithfully re?
ported. The speech, as d-livered, was as fol?
fc':G*ntlemen, being entirely unaccustomed
as I am to public speaking, I not baring cul?
tivated that grace, all I can say is that in
whatever place you assign me I will endeavor
to discharge the duties devolving on me im?
partially and to the beat of my ability. [Im?
mense cheering". I can only refer you to the
record I have left." At the close of these
words General Grant returned to the parlor,
remarking-"I made a speech, bnt don't know
whether they heard it." A comparison will
show tho difference between the speech of
General Grant as really delivered and the
speech which was telegraphed to the press of
the country. The immense crowd which heard
it was composed of a hundred and fifty or two
hundred men and boys. The latter part of
Mr. Colfax's speech is pronounced by his own
friends here as in wretched taste. Grant says
Colfax is the most popular man in America,
and Colfax says he had sooner be second on
Grant's ticket than be President. .
m TTtrpy.AnrrHTvr HUMOUS.
Among the rumors last night it was reported
that the special friends of. General Grant are
d?sirons to have impeachment done with,
on the theory that to keep it alive only breeds
trouble and division in the Radical camp. This
view of the case doea not suit the vain-glori?
ous Stevenses, Butlers and WUliamees. Mr.
Stevens has concocted several new articles,
and so we hear has Mr. Manager Wilhams,
and on this new hue they propose to fight it
out all the summer. Mr. Butler win not light?
ly relinquish the honors of his investi Ration,
and will affirm probably that the key to suc?
cess in the coming campaign hes not so much
in Mr. Boutwell's "hole in the sky" as in the
keyhole on earth. But if the friends of Gen.
Grant shall determine that prudence requires
this troublesome business to be disposed of,
they will be able to suppress the ultra impeach?
ers in both' Houses of Congtes?, and Messrs.
Butler and Stevens will cry ''Never say die" to
an unbeheving generation.
FEELING AMONO TEE DEM0CBATS.
The Democratic party here are enthusiastic.
I have not conversed with' a single man he
longing to it. since Grant's nomination, who is
not confident of victory in November-whoever
our candidate may be. The question of expe?
diency in the choice is no longer mooted.
MOVEMENT TO INDUCE GENERAL GBANT TO HE
A strong pressure is being brought to bear
upon General Grant to induce him to resign
his commission, and it is hinted that the move?
ment is countenanced at the White House.
This pressure is not shared in by the Republi?
cans, who desire that Grant shall remain at the
head of the army until the last moment, and
they advise him to withhold bis resignation
until the first week in November next.
RADICALS DISSATISFIED WITH THE CHICAGO FLAT?
A good many of the Radicals here are ex?
pressing dissatisfaction with the Chicago plat?
form, particularly with the plank relating to
negro sunrage. They say a great deal more
danger to the integrity of the party is to be
apprehended from half way trimming measures
than a bold announcement of a determination
to press universal suffrage to its' legitimate
conclusion, and embrace S?rth and South at
the same tune. The extreme men say they are
sick of a party that has not courage enough to
hurl Johnson cul of 'the White House and
make a straightforward avowal of the principle
of equal rights, which is the very life essence
of the party.
REPORTED SEIZURE OF THE BRITISH MINISTER'S
It is said that among the telegraphic dis
Ktehee seized by the Board of Impeachment
magers were several cable dispatches sent
by the British Minister to his government. It
is further stated that the announcement that
Ben. Butler had taken possession of all private
telegrams sent from this city since>Zthe Friday
evening preceding the vote on the eleventh
article, called to the recollection of Mr. Thorn?
ton that included in the number of dispatches
so seized might perhaps be certain messages
sent by him to the British Government, and,
on making inquiry, this was found to be the
case. Rumor has it that an incipient imbrog?
lio ia plainly discerned by those who have had
an opportunity of learning all that has trans?
pired in the matter.
THE GBAED NATIONAL SHOOTING FESTIVAL.
The arrangements for this fest are rapidly be?
ing completed. At a meeting of the commit?
tees last week reports were made, from which
the'following facts appear:
The procession which is to take place on
the third day of the festival will be the grand?
est and most imposing ever witnessed in this
city. The Ninety-sixth, Eleventh, Sixth, and
Fifth Regiments have signified their intention
to participate. There will march in this pr. -
cession'nearly every shooting singing, and
benevolent society in this and neighboring
cities, and the Turners and Veteran Societies
will join it : eight music bands and five drum
corps have been engaged, besides the bands of
the ""HH?- The. procession will parade in
seven divisions, of which the second and
third are to be of an allegorical character. The
second division will illustrate the "history of
shooting," from its earliest beginning, to the
present day, representing every stage of shoot?
ing firearms, from the arrow of the indian to
the breechloader ot Bismarck. In this division
will march (by representation) the monk,
Barthold Schwarz, the inventor of gunpowder.
Six American shooters, carrying Sharp's rifle,
will conclude this division. The third division
will represent the purpose of the festival. Its
principle feature will consist of a gorgeous
carriage, drawn by six white horses. In this
carriage will be seated Columbia, welcoming
Germania, and Helvetia, surrounded by their
"maids of honor," all dressed in white and
adorned with their national colors. The
amount to be expended for these two divisions
will be very near $8000.
Tho prizes for the winners in the great con?
tests are mostly given by societies, and are
coming in rapidly. They amount already to
nearly $4000. '
The buildings necessary for the festival are
in course of erection. The large hall, which
will seat 6000 persons at dinner, is nearly com?
pleted.- New York Commerciai.
-General N.B. Forrest has published a let?
ter advising his late companions in arms, the
"rebB," to actively co-operate with their Dem?
ocratic friends in sending delegates to the
New York National Convention, to he held on
the 4th of July. He concludes as follows:
"The only hope of a restoration ot a good gov?
ernment in this country is in the success of
the National Democracy in the next Presiden?
tial campaign. I trust my late comrades will
not, from expediency or other motives, absent
themselves from a participation in the politi?
cal exercises which are to result in the choice
of standard-bearers, made with a view to so
patriotic and desirable an end. So far as I am

Letter from a well known citizen of Ohio. Mr. J.
Hm) RE TH, aged 68 years, Mansfield, 0.:
MANSFIELD, O., March 21,1868.
DR. RAD WAT: Enclosed find one dollar. Send by
mall SB many of your Regulating Pflls as you can
afford. I wish your Pills and Resolvent I like them
very much and recommend them to Others. Our
druggists have non?; they say the run ls so great
they have sold oat I am free to say, for myself, they
are the best medicine I ever found. I wish you
would inform me if there is any danger If they are
retained In the system fo ra length of time, by ta?
king one or m ore-eve ry evening for a length of time,
as therefSfW-many good medicines that arc injurious
to take for a length of time. * * * *
I have for several years been troubled with costive?
ness, so that even injections would not procure an
evacuation. I was ah the time in more or less pain
from the flatulency, with large discharges of wind.
At the same time I was afflicted with urinary diffi?
culties; at times it almost killed me to pass water,
very scanty and in drops, at other times large quan?
tities, almost amounting to diabetes. My age ls 68.
I tried everything I thought would do good; nothing
afforded relief. In short, I procured one box of RAD
WAT'S REGULATING TELLS, took six, free evacuations
followed-no sickness, no pain. Took two at bed?
time, this secured a stool each day; sometimes would
take three, at others four, each day-result, regular
for several days, without pills. All pam and trouble
from wind ceased. Got one bottle of R. R. RESOL?
VENT ; urine now all right I am well known, more
or less, all over this State, and not unfavorably for
truth and veracity. Send pills without delay.
(Signed) J. HTLDRETH.
ANSWER.-RADWAY'S PILLS are composed ex
elusively of vegetable extracta, and are dissolved in
the stomach, and the'r properties absorbed through
the circulation, acting on the blood, chyle, bile and
other fluids of the system, passing off through the
excretions, and not like mercury, calomel, corrosive
sublimate, antimony and the common drastic sub?
stances that form the basis of ordinary pills, accumu*
late m the sys tem and be come depo si ted in the bones,
Joints, cartlleges and glands of (he system, but they
communicate their curative Influence through the
blood, chyle, bile, sweat, urine, ic. ; correcting, regu
atlng, purifying, cleansing and purging from the
body all unhealthy humors, and restoring functional
harmony to the secreting vessels and orifices of every
gland and organ.
In all cases of Dyspepsia. Liver Complaint, Imper?
fect Digested Food their influence is wonderful, and
no matter how weak or paralyzed the bowels may
be, or how irregular or costive, in the aged or others,
one dose will ensure a discharge, and one or two en?
sure regular stools, at least once a day. All aged
gentlemen and Iadiea, who have used them, prefer
them to all others, and the young and vigorous find
them the most thorough regulator of the liver and
bo welp known. In cases where the bowels have been
paralyzed by lead, and other minerals, and from arti'
sana' diseases, these Pills have secured free passage,
where all other means failed. In bilious attacks, in
flammation of the bowels, erysipelas, fevers, Ac,
that causes ulceration of the lining of the bowels and
intestines, they are mild, sure and healing. Every
family should keep these Pills. They are the best
family physicians in the world, and only 25 centa per
box, or $1 20 for six boxes. Sent to any part of the
United States by mail.
The use of the Sarsaparillian, or Renovating Re?
solvent, in your case, showed its importance in uri?
nary difficulties. The aged are more or less troubled
with these affections; weakness of the digestive or?
gans and imperfectly digested food being the cause;
thc insufficiency of chyle, or its unhealthy condition,
fails to dissolve the substances taken into the stom?
ach, so as to pass off through the alimentary
canal; it 16 (the food) converted into water and seeks
an escape through the kidneys, thus establishing a
foreign secretion of these glands, hence the urine
becou. es charged with foreign constituents, causing
deposits of gravel, brick-dust, lithic acid, albumen,
sugar, kc, irritating thc bladder, causing weakness,
paralysis, catarrh and pam to the canal of urethra in
in its passage out of the system. Hundreds of aged
persons suffer from this aa well os others. A few
doses of Rad way's Sarsaparillian Resolvent would re?
move these diffiulties, and with the aid of the pills
secure healthy and perfect digestion. Hundreds of
persons suffering from kidney and urinary disturb?
ances and diseases, may rest assured of this being
the true cause. Now, m such cases, Eur hu, Cubebs,
Juniper, Gin, kc, are dangerous, and will prolong
the cure and establish worse and new difficulties.
Cubebs are irritat'ng and makes the urine acrid,
causing pain, Itching, Ac, along its passage. Every
well informed medical man knows what I state is a
fact Let those who are troubled just try the Sarsa?
parillian Resolvent and Radway's PillB, you will find
almost immediate relief; it will do for you what it
has dono for Mr. Hildreth. This gentleman is a
stranger to us, we give his testimony as we received
it; or one fact rest assured, one bottle of the Sarsapa?
rillinn, or Renovating Resolvent, is worth all the
Buchu leaves that were ever gathered by the most
enlightened Hottentot, who, perhaps, knows aa much
about Buchu as the constitution, whether it be shat
terf d, wrecked, or pre- erved pure and entire.
3 he Parara Brava. Sarsaparillian, and other vege?
table substances, are gatherfd for Dr. Rodway by
persons of intelligence, who are acquainted with the
diOcrent varieties of each root, EO as not to make a
mistake. We do not trust the gathering ot our roots
to a lot of savage Hottentots, beoce the certainty of
securing the genuine roots.

OS" AVOID POISON.- -INVALID READER,
do you know what nine-tenths of the bitter com?
pounds you are solicited by the proprietors to accent
as universal panaceas are composed of? Give heed
for a moment They are manufactured from un pu?
rified alcohol, containing a considerable portion of
iusil oil-a poison almost as deadly as prussic acid.
The basis of the regular tinctures of the Muteria
Medicals the same. Noamountof "herbal extracts"
can overcome the bad tendency of this pernicious
element. The essence ol sound rye, thoroughly rec?
tified, is the only stimulant which can be safely used
as a component of a tonic, alterativo and anti-bilious
medicine, and HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS
is the onlymedical preparation in the world in which
this article is used cs an ingredient. Hence the ex?
traordinary effects of this great specific. It gives
strength without producing excitement. No other
tonic does this. All thc ordinary Bitters flush the
face and affect the brain. HOSTETTER'S BIT 1 EB 3
diffuses an agreeable calm through the nervous sys?
tem, promotes digestion aud produces sleep. No
other tonic so quickly revives the exhausted physical
energies, restores the appetite and removes the gloom
and depression which always accompanies weakness
of the bodi]v powers. It purges from the s j stem the
morbid humors which retard its natural functions,
and which bring paleness to thc cheek and suffering
to the brow. It banishes those clogs: upon pleasure,
restores the system to high health, and necessarily -
proves a valuable adjuuet to the digestive organs. A
trial is all that is needed to establish it iu the confi?
dence of the skept :. G May 23
