Tb? Politisai Outlook.
Day by day the political field becomes
better defined, and we are enabled to
judge with greater acouraoy and cer?
tainty what form the contest will as?
sume, and how the canvass will be con?
ducted. The Cincinnati platform and
nominees have been before the people,
and bean discussed, criticised, endorsed,
abused or sustained, as the humor,
judgment or party zeal of different com?
mentators saggeBted, for six weeks. The
Grantites have held their little dresB
parade, and agreeably to orders from
army headquarters, at Washington,
named Ulysses as their first choice,
"with singular unanimity." Mr. Colfax
was thrown oat, smiling still, and the
Natiok oobbler thrown in, the which
swapping of horses, it is thought, is
chiefly attributable to the terrible on?
slaught of Sumner upon Grunt, which,
it was feared, might lose Massachusetts
to the military party. All the hopes of
the anti-Grant Republicans of a more
acceptable nomintoe than Grant, by the
regalar party convention, are ended;
and we believe the great balk of them
will tarn, and give Uncle Horace their
There is bat one more preliminary
movement to be made, whioh can change
the nature of the campaign. This is
the action of. the General Democratic
Convention, which meets in leas than a
month at Baltimore. Will Baltimore
join haiiJa with Oiooinnati in the patri?
otic effort to overthrow the one-man
power sad resoae Republican institu?
tions from the maelstrom of centralization
to which they are rapidly verging ander
military rule? We are happy to say that
this is scarcely now a question. In
every Demooratio Convention of whioh
we have had any aooount, in Iowa,
Kansan, Tennessee, Indiana, New York,
Missouri, California, Maryland, Pennsyl?
vania, Florida, our own State and else?
where, with the single exception of
Delaware, there has been shown an in?
clination, more or less clearly marked,
to suppog^ the Liberal Republican nomi?
nees and platform. Greeley and Brown
have grown rapidly in strength every
day sinoe their nomination, and we can
discover no possible reason to apprehend
that the current of popular feeling can
be turned against them before the Con?
vention meets at Baltimore. The New
York World is evidently weakening in
ita attaoks upon Mr. Greeley, being pro?
bably convinced, by this timo, that it is
running oounter to Democratic senti?
ment, undertaking a useless task and
proving at once a suicidal and a suspi?
Terre Haute, Mr. Yoorhees' own dis?
trict, has declared against him in favor
of Greeley and Brown, and he himself
has softened down so much as to say
that he will support the nominations at
Baltimore, whatever they may be. All
these indications, therefore, render us
quite sanguino that Greeley and Brown
will receive tho overwhelming, if not en?
tirely unanimous, support of the dele?
gates at Baltimore. If they do, and the
Demooratio masses support the tioket at
the polls with anything like unanimity
and wu are convinced that they will do
it-then the tanner and the sorry shoe?
maker who rides behind him may as well
take time by the forelock, and go hunt
a joint job at Galena, or somewhere else,
for they will have no further opportuni?
ty to pursue such avocations at Washing?
As New York and Pennsylvania, so
will go the election. As to New York,
with a joint Demooratio and Liberal Re?
publican vote for Greeley, we have
scarcely more doubt of how it will go
than we have of Kentucky or Tennessee.
Seymour carried the State in 1868, and
Horace Greeley will get Seymour's vote
and thousands of Republican ballots be?
sides. The farmer of Uhappaqaa, honest,
good and sterling man that he is, is
more popular in his own State, where he
is best known, than elsewhere; even
more popular, perhaps, than any other
publio man in it; and the Empire State
will doubtless roll np a majority for him
more handsome than sho has ever given
a Presidential candidate.
Ia Pennsylvania, the signs are alu. oat
equally cheering. Hartranft, the Re?
publican candidate for Governor, is re?
pudiated by a large portion of bis party,
and by many of the Republican journals
in tbs State. He is the ring candidate,
and is believed to have been deeply im?
plicated with one Evans in defrauding
the State of several hundred thousand
dollars, ia manipulating the war olaims
which Pennsylvania held against the
General Government. He is a man of
no influence, bat little respected, and is
conceded to be a dead weight to the
party. Mr. Buckalow, on the other
hand, who is the Democratic candidate
for Governor, ta the very strongest man
the party could possibly pat forward. 1
He is a gentleman of unsullied reputa- ]
tion, a statesman, conservative in his j
views, and respected and esteemed by 1
the good men of both parties. The 1
ohanoes are strongly in hta favor, even if
the oonteBt were to be a square one be?
tween him and Hartranft, as Democrat :
and Republican, and no consideration
whatever taken of the inoreased strength
which Horace Greeley will give the
former. As it is, we have every reason
confidently to hope that the Democrats
and Liberal Republicans combined will
sweep the State by 10,000 or 15,000 ma?
These two States will give Greeley and
Brown a handsome majority in the elec?
toral college, such as to cover every pos?
sibility of losing several smaller States.
Grant's fate is in tho hands of the De?
mocrats. They can make or unmake
him. They are daily becoming more
convinced of this, and we have now bot
little doubt that they will manfully and
unanimously pursue the only course left
open to them, whereby they may pre?
servo constitutional liberty to our great
Helenic of Captain Trcxtvant.
A private telegram from Charleston,
yesterday, brought the glad news to the
family and friends of Captain Wm. H.
Trezevant that he had been uncondi?
tionally discharged by Jadge Bryan, be?
fore whom he was taken nuder a writ of
habeas corpus. The Badioal officials,
though they have had ample time to
precuro ali possible testimony, were
utterly unable to make out even the
semblance of a case agaiust him.
We were informed some time sinoe of
the circumstances of Captain Trezovaut'a
arrest; the perjured testimony upon
which it was founded; the illegal man?
ner in whioh the warrant was served,
and the private and vindictive malice
whioh actuated the proceeding against
him from the beginning; but we forebore
comment until the court had taken action
in the premises.
We have reason to believe that oar
inimitable Governor, in conjunction
with a certain individual scarcely less
disreputable, bat more obscure than
himself, were the prime movers in this
outrageous prosecution of Captain Treze?
vant. It was the connection of the high
functionary above named with the case,
we presume, which caused our Ka Klux
martyr aoross the way to gloat, with
fiendish delight, over the arrest and im?
prisonment of an innocent man, and in?
duced him, furthermore, to misrepre?
sent Captain Trezevant'e refusal to give
bail before Boozer as a failure to secure
Capt. Trezevant refused to give bail
because conscious of his innocence, and
of the baseless charge whioh a perjured
witness had been purchased to make
against him; he was determined to de?
mand an unconditional discharge. If he
had consented to be bound over to appear
at court for trial, there would doubtless
have been enough perjured witnesses
brought together by August next to have
sent him to the penitentiary; especially
when he would have to plead before a

THE ?DJOTJBNMKNT OF GONOBBSB.-Tho
icoond session of the forty-second Con?
gress ended last evening, at 9 o'clock,
ifter a session of 188 days. The session
aaa been distinguished more for the
rariety of its "investigations" and the
dexterity of their management than for
the passage of any measure of great im
portanco, except perhaps the tariff and
tax reduction bills, the partial amnesty,
and a remarkable ryder to the sundry
civil appropriation bill affecting the
supervision of elections, being in faot a
modification of the Senate's supplemen?
tary enforcement election bill. The at?
tempts of the Senate majority to force
apon the House the supplementary oivil
or social rights measure, and the propo?
sition to continue the power in the
bands of the President, suspending the
writ of habeas corpus in the South, were
tinnily of no avail, by reason of tbe re?
quisite two-thirds vote not being ob?
tainable to* suspend the rules iu the
House. The measure wbicb gave tbe
greatest trouble, however, in the last
days and hours of the session, was tho
supplemental election ryder to the sun?
dry appropriation bill.
This measure, in ita most objectiona?
ble form, passed the Senate on Friday
night last, and the notion of the Senate:
in thus jeopardizing ;.u important ap?
propriation bill at the heel of the session
of Cungross, ia violation of its own
pledged, aroused universal indignation,
aot only among Liberal and Democratic
journals, but iu tbe Republican press.
The supplement, in its original form,
provided for extending the provision
Tor Federal inspectors and supervisors
of election in towns of not less than
20,000 inhabitants to all towns and
sities of the country, with authority to
sall in the aid of the United States
torces, should the marsbals deem it ne?
cessary, thus over-riding the State au?
thorities in tho matter of elections. The
Philadelphia Inquirer (Republican) call?
ed it the bayonet bili, und denounced its
abject of "putting the polls ia Novem?
ber under military control." The In?
quirer warned the Senate that "the
sountry will not submit to military rule
in times of absolute peace," and said
that if the Senate insisted in its mad
s?beme, "the favor in whioh General
Brunt now stands will be taken from
The New York Herald, independent,
declared that "there is no more necessi?
ty for extending military law over tbe
Southern State? than over the New
Eugluud States," though they propose to
bring both under the samo law, fearing,
as the Herald says, "it may beoomo ne?
cessary, in case of Greeley's endorse?
ment by the Demooruts, to carry the
South at the point of Federal bayonets."
The New York Sun, independent Re?
publican, asked, "Are they mad? have
they been struck with insanity," ?Siro.
Tbe New York Tribune said that the
Senate had seriously injured its charac?
ter, and the New York Post asked if it
was "mad, or what?"
After a determined struggle in tbe
FIouso, yesterday, the bill going back and
forth to different committees of confer?
ence, it was finally passed in a compro?
mised form, providing that there shall
be no more marshals than those already
authorized by law, and that on the re?
quest of ten citizens the Judge of a
United States Circuit Court may appoint
two citizens of different political partie*
as supervisors, who shall have no powei
to make arrests or to perform otbei
duties than to be present and witness all
the proceedings at elections, and to see
to the counting of the votes. All such
measures, however, are of especial ovi
omen when demanded by a party on thc
eve of a Presidential eleotion. By rea

A Ulan - HANDED OUTBADE.-The Lon?
don (Ganada) Herald and Prototype, of j
Juno 7, says:
About two weeks ago a gentleman, \
whose name we suppress for reasons that (
will be afterward explained, oame to tb in (
city from the Soutb. He was formerly ]
a resident of York County, S. O. Dur- f
ing the American war he servod BB a sur- ,
geon in tbe Confederate army. At its ,
oonolasion he returned to bia borne, do- t
termined to make the bost of existing ,
oircamstanceB. He still, however, re- ,
tuined bis belief in tho principles for |
which he had risked bis life, and bc ,
freely denounced tbe military despotism (
which Grant has established in the con?
quered States. ' His popularity and local
iufluenoe mado him particularly obuox- ,
ious to the oarpot-baggera, and when it (
w H s decided to suepond tho habeas cor- \
pus Aot, in order to carry the elections, i
his name wan marked down an one of the
victims. When ho learned this, bo im- |
mediately started for Canada, closely fol- ;
lowed by one S. B. Cornell, a Yankee
spy, in the pay of Grant's carpet-bagger*
in-chief, Gov. Robert K. Scott. The
fugitive reached British territory iu safe - ,
ty, and Cornell, seeing that Gov. Scott's
warraut wan no longer of any use, ap- <
plied to tho United S rates Secret Service
Department for UFsistance. They placed
a fellow named Joseph G. Hester ut his
service, and the two worthies lost no
time in ooming on to London to secure
their game. There is reason to believe
that they dogged him round the city for
som? days before they got un opportuni?
ty of carrying out their nefarious pro?
On Tuesday last, about 4 P. M., he
waa out fora walk on one of tho streets
in the Northern part of thu city, when
be observed two cubs approaching him
at fuii speed from opposite directions.
When opposite him they stopped, and
two men, jumping out of each cub,
rushed at him, und before he could give
uu alarm, he was seized by the thront
and ohoked until he was insensible. Die
was then thrown ioto one of the cabs,
the two detectives jumped io after him,
and both cabs drove off iu opposite
directions. Several persons witnessed
the occurrence, but presumed that the
men were acting under authority, aa no
one for a moment suspected that au out?
rage of this description would be at?
tempted in our city. When the men got
bim to Detroit they procured a warrant
and formally arrested him. Ho refused
to diaolose bis real name to the author?
ities there, and the warrant was mude
out in the name of James Simpson. Is
is this circumstance that has induced ut
to withhold his name for the present.
The first intelligence his friends here re?
ceived of his fate was in a telegram
whioh he sent them from Leavittsbnrg,
Ohio, in which he informed thom that
he had been conveyed to Detroit while
under the influence of chloroform. He
was well kuowu to a large number of
Southern gentlemen in the city, aad
they all unite io bearing the highest
testimony to his character.
A memorial bas been dispatched to?
day to the Dominion Government, pray?
ing for their action in the matter. We
trust to see it prompt and decis?r- No
ministry, however popular, coat afford
to ignore snob an outrage. We trust
that the matter will not lead to any in?
ternational difficulties, but whatever the
cost may be, our honor most be sus?
tained. If a criminal escapes to Canada,
we have extradition laws which will se?
cure bis punishment. Tho very fact that
the kidnappers made no attempt to ap?
peal to those laws fully explains the
nature of their mission. We understand
that one of oar County sub-offijials is
conoerned in the matter too, though to
what extent we are aa yet nuable to say.
