A NEW CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESI?
DENCY.-Oakey Hall, the talented young
Mayor of New York, is becoming ex?
ceedingly popular with the people of
Gotham. Although Mr. Hall is u pro?
nouncer Democrat of the old style, John
Russell Young, editor of the New York
Standard, a Republican paper, advocates
bis claims for the Presidency. That pa?
per says: "Mayor Hall, the Disraeli of
the Democracy, is versatile, accom?
plished, witty, brilliant, energetic and
Tbo editor of the Standard is not the
only intelligent member of the radical
party who is casting about for a good
man for the next President. Neither is
be the only one by many thousauds who
feel convinced that the Democracy must
furnish the next Exeoutive of the Fede?
"THERE IS NO WAR AFTER DEATH."
Such was tho magnanimous reply of the
Prussiau Ambassador to an invitation to
attend the funeral of the French diplo?
matic representative in Washington yes?
terday. Tho sentiment was worthy of a
groat soul, and we honor the man that
uttered it. God grant that the inspira?
tion may strike home in some of the
baser American hearts about Washing
ton, which have delighted in pursuiug
tbe dead and heaping indignity on their
graves. We commend it especially to
the savage hoad of tho "Army of the
Republic," and bid him learn from this
stranger of a foreign land now engaged
in deadly strife, the sentiments and cus?
toms of a civilized ago. Baron Gorolt's
hnmanity can drop a sprig upon the
grave cf his country's enemy in the
midst of war; yet, five long years after
its din has been bushed in this profess?
edly christian land, a flower from thc
hand of kindred and friends is refused
to the rcBtiug place of the Confederate
dead 1 We thank the Baron for bis re?
buke, and commend the lesson to all.
, Some of our Southern friends, says the
New York Times, anticipates lowor prices
for ootton as one of tho results of the
war. English advices apeak of panic
and failures in the cotton market there,
arising, we must conclude, from tho
probable closing of the continental
markets both to the raw and tho manu?
factured products. Last year, this coun?
try sent ootton amounting in vnluo to
?13,500,000 to North Germany; and
though, for tho present, access to Ger?
many may bo had through Belgium ot
Holland, the trade will be very seriously
checked, while it will bo practically out
off should those oountries becomo in?
volved in tho contest.
In Now York city, since Sunday,* there
have been 137 cases of sun-stroko and 64

MEETING OF THE BJEFUBLIOAN Nom
NATINO CJONVKNTION.--Tbio body-con?

Governor,) Chairman of tho State Exec?
utive Committee, took the Chair, called
the meeting to order, and thofi delivered
a longthy address-laudatory of Gov.
Scott, and denouncing Judge Carpenter.
On motion of S. J. Leo, Assistant Ad?
jutant and Inspector-General B. B. Elli?
ott was called upon to act as tomporary
Chairman. Representativo Hogo's op?
ponent returned thanks for the unex?
pected honor, and expressed nn earnest
desire to faithfully perform bis official
duties. He was greeted with rounds of
applause-Speaker Moses leading tho
demonstration and energetically keeping
it up. The colored Beading Clerk of
tho House was appointed temporary
Secretary. The Chairman having an?
nounced the Convention ready to pro?
ceed to buiBiness, it was moved and se?
conded, that a committee of one from
each Congressional District and three at
large be appointed, to examino creden?
tials. As there are rival delegations
from several preoioctS) and the claimants
are very ouergetio. and emphatic in the
assertion of the cut?as, warm work js
anticipated. The com mitten consists of
Cadet-Brokor Wbittetnore, from tho 1st;
Bepresentative Whipper, from the 2d;
Assistant President.of the Senate Mont?
gomery, from the 3d; Comptroller Nea
gle, from the 4th; and Senator Nash,
Representative Mobley, and Senator
Bain ey, at large.
" It was then moved that the Conven?
tion take a recess until 3 o'olook-to
giro the committee time io make out
their report. EX-Uriitod: States1 Marshal
Epping thought 4 o'clock time enough,
as by that hour members would be able
to obtain their dinners, and consequent?
ly feel in better humor. This sensible
advice proved acceptable and was unani?
On the re-assembling of the Conven?
tion at 4 o'clock, t he temporury Chair?
man announced that, as the Committee
on Credentials was still out, he was ready
to hear what was the will of the Conven?
In accordance with a motion, carried
unanimously. Daddy Cain was conduct?
ed to the Chair and addressed tho Con?
vention. His remarks were continued
to some length. . Ho commenced by an?
nouncing that tho question at stake at
tho present time wus whether the Re?
publican party should continue to bold
its sway in this State, orwhethorit would
allow tue reform party to succeed iu its
.endeavor to obtain the control of the
Stabe afueres. He announced in flowing
terms Gov. R. K.: Scott for re-nomiuatiou.
This was received with npplauae. He
dwelt at some length on the charges ol
corruption that had been brought against
tho Republican party, bringing befort
his hearers in glowing colors tho change
in the finances of the State during tin
present administration. The charge
that be was to support Judge
Carpenter for Governor was alluded tc
and emphatically denied. Tho black
man's party, ho said, he did not favor
but he called attention to tho fact tba
while there were 87,000 negro votes,
there were only 63,000 white votes, ant
expressed tho opinion that tho tinto hail
now como to have a representation of col
or in proportion to these figures. Th??
would be a protection to white men a:
well as colored men.
Senator Hayne next called upon Col
Graham, of Marion, who made a thor
speech-tho burduuof which was astato
ment of the modus of his change fron
Democracy to Badicalism. Ho was i
true and blue Republican, although h
had held a high position in tho Demo
eratic party in 1868.

who delivered a dry and lengthy har
rungue on his favorite topic-the blacl

World points out tho curious fact that
all the leaders qt-the great anti-slavery
party of this nation, those at least who
held high executive stations, bare gone' '
ashore or beeu shipwrecked. Mr. Lin?

by a picturesque and horrible catastro?

Seward, the "oldT?m?raire," unlike the
hero whom Turner painted reposing in
the light of a cheerful sunset, is hogged
and broken-backed. Mr. Chase, washed
by a sort of gigantic "bore," an accident?

TnE Ernies OF TIMOTHY HURLEY.
The radicals held a County convention
in Blackville, on Tuesday last. One of
tho speakers at tho convention was Tim?
othy Hurley, the notorious lobby-ageut
of the South Carolina Legislature, who
demonstrated that it would bowell to re?
elect Governor Scott ou tho score of
economy, "as he hmd already made all
that he wanted to, and would not be ant/
longer necessitated to steal-whereas, his
successor would." This is of a piece
with the declarations of this same Hur?
ley, made again and again in the streets
of Charleston.-Charleston Neics.
A TERRIBLE MISTAKE.-During the

in the well, and that can bo got at when
the fire is over." A piercing shriek
immediately followed, for, looking down,
she found what she held in her arms was
only her plate, tied up in a handker?

hurry, she had thrown into the well her

companions arrived they found a pen
had been built for their accommodation,

Mr. Belmont is shortly to sever his
