BOSTON, June 23.-The Grant Central
Campaign Club held a ratification meet?
ing last night. Hon. Alexander Bice
presided. General Butler was seated on
the rostrum. Jadge Hoar was the first
person intioduoed, and lauded the can?
didates for their well-earned distinction
in the lines of war and politics. In his
allusion to Sumner, the audience was
disposed to hiss, but were oheoked by
the speaker before his sentence was com?
pleted. His expression waa only one ol
regret at the course his friend had taken,
and that he woald Boon realize his false
position. General Butler followed, and
said that this was only the continuation
of the campaign begun on the 19th ol
April, 1861. The old Democratic part}
was done gone dead. Greeley's success
depends upon his nomination at Balti

was united and unbroken. Hones1

article, as amended by the Senate, thi
the British Government could not olear!

vague, and if it should be negotiated i
the form of a treaty, another treal
would have to be made hereafter to d

mont was not disposed to alter tb
amended article, considering that Gre
Britain hesitated at a more phraseology
and that her objection was more teche
oal than real. During the correapon

acted as if her dictation were to rule tl

object to Great Britain giving an a

The June report of the statistician of
the Department of Agriculture, now in
press, is exhaustive in its treatment of
wheat statistics. It is based upon re?
ports from 903 Counties, of which 199
indicate an average condition; 270 higher
than an average, and 434 a low condi?
tion; ranging from 100, the standard of
a medium prospect, down to 10, and in
a few oases down to an entire failure.
The State averages are calculated not
simply from the number of Connties re?
ported, but from the comparative pro?
duction of the several Counties. These
903 reports iuolude a very large propor?
tion of the wheat area of the country.
The summary of the returns of area
shows a reduction of two per cent, from
that of 1871.
The aereage of spring wheat, in those
States which grow that variety mainly,
is represented as follows: Maine, 108;
New Hampshire. 100; Vermont, 102;
Massachusetts, 95; Wisconsin, 98; Min?
nesota, 101; Iowa, 106; Nebraska, 113;
Oregon, 107; California, where the dis?
tribution of spring and winter is soarcely
known, reporta spring, 120; winter, 130;
Illinois, where winter wheat constitutes
two-thirdB of the crop, gives 101 for
winter, and 75 for spring; Kansas, where
spring wheat predominates, returns 140
for spring and 62' for winter.
The States growing winter wheat are
Connecticut, 95; New York, 98; New
Jersey, 98; Pennsylvania, 90; Delaware,
96; Maryland, 100; Virginia, 98; North
Carolina, 101; South Carolina, 96; Geor?

103; West Virginia, 100; Kentucky, 92;
Ohio, 88; Michigan, 92; Indiana, 94;
Illinois, 101; Missouri, 92.
The condition of the predominate va?
riety in eaoh State is thus stated: Maine,

Wisconsin, 104; Minnesota, 106; Iowa,
111; Missouri, winter, 58; Kansas, 108;
winter, 46; California, 99; Oregon 95.
The general average of condition for
the entire orop is 94. The department
estimate for the crop of 1871 was 230,
000,000 bushels, at bushels per
acre. Considering 12 bushels an average
yield, the area and condition of the
present orop on the first week in Jane
pointed to a product of 220,000,000
bushels in 1872. The orop of 1869,
which was 16 per cent, above an average,
the largest recorded in ten years, was
287,000,000 bushels, us returned by the
A SUDDEN DEATH UNDER PECULIAR
CIRCUMSTANCES.-The following we olip
from a Frederick County, Va., paper:
"We had quite a sudden death here
at the faotory yesterday. You know
where the old meeting house is at the
factory. While the Sunday School was
assembled there, old Mr. Bioe Levi
stepped in, accompanied by some other
gentlemen, and made an address, in
whioh he used rather improper language,
arguing on soma passages of Scriptures.
Mr. Hensel (probably tho superintend?
ent of the Sunday School) maintained
the veraoity of the Bible, whioh the
former entirely rejected, saying he did
not believe in the Bible at all; that
it was a book brought together by the
illusions of the prophets, and without
speaking another word, took bis hat and
left the ohuroh. Trying to bitch his
horse, bo dropped down, and the horse
trampled upon him. They pioked him
up, carried him back into the ohuroh,
where attempts at restoration were made
withont success; then they took him to
Mr. Colbert's house, where, in the course
of an hour, he expired. He was speech?
less from the moment he left the ohuroh
till his death."

The fat contributor is about to start
a newspaper in Cincinnati. He says:
"It is not unusual lor people about to I
start newspapers, to inform the public I
in a semi-apologetic way, that they have
discovered a 'void' in newspaperdom
which they propose to fill. They leave I
it to be inferred that they would not1
thus madly prance into tho uncertain
field of journalism did they not distinctly
see this void, and had they not unbound
: ed confidence in their ability to fill the
j yawning chasm. And they fill it, too,
not anfrequently, and we hear no more
of them or the void either. We do not
profess to have discovered one of those
voids. In faot, we don't care whether
there is a void or not. Instead of hunt?
ing up we intend to go to work and make
a place for a newspaper, and strive to
establish it there on the basis of public
confidenoe and appreciation."
The editor of the Paris (Ey.) Citizen
baa interviewed Hon. James B. Beck,
who returned from Washington a day or
two since, upon the political situation,
and is entirely satisfied with his views.
"He regards any other course than the
support of the nominees of the Cincin?
nati Convention as out of the question
and the height of politioal folly." There
is hardly a Democrat of any prominence
whatsoever in Kentucky, who does not
hold the same opinion as does Mr. Beck.

THE RADICAL PLATFORM -The Balti?
more Gazette takes up the platform
adopted at Philadelphia, and in pioking
it to pieoes, deulares that a more "inge?
niously self-stultifying piece of work?
manship was never put together." The
Gazette goes on to say, and we adopt its
language: It olaimit much, covers the
widest possible field, and is fall of those
specious promises that the same deceit?
ful party hos so often made to the ear,
and so deliberately and scandalously
broken to the hope. It required no less
than seventeen planks to sot forth what
the party has done, what its claims to
public approval are, and how patrioti?
cally, and wisely, and scrupulously, and
honestly, it intends to act in the future.
Itoommences with a solemn laudation of
"the grand oourage" with whioh for the
paBt eleven years the party has accepted
the duties of the time; of its patriotism
in war, its magnanimity (?) in peace, its
humane policy toward thc Indians, its
generous distribution of publia lands to
settlers, its reduotion of the pnblio debt,
(by means of enormous taxation,) and
j its honorable-and would any one be
I lieve it?-its admirable foreign policy.
The uegroes are told what great things
I have been done for them. The enforcu
i ment of the constitutional amendment is
i declared to be a duty; also, to protect
|our citizens abroad und to sympathize
with foreigo revolutionists. Tho present
| mode of appointing to offico is acknow?
ledged to be so "fatally demoralizing as
to make a reform of tho civil service im?
How Morton and tho special partisans
of Geo. Grant must have laughed in
their sleeves wheu this plank of the plat?
form was read, and wu can imagine the
sly winks aud nudges that will pass be?
tween Pomeroy, and Harbin, and Bam
say, aud the whole herd of Senatorial
aud Congressional laud-grabbers, when
they learn that the factiou to which they
belong "is opposed to further grants of
publio lauds to corporations and mono
polios, and demands that the national
domain"-what is left of it-"shall bo
sot spurt for freo homos of tho people."
Tho protective tariff plank comes next
in ordor, and this asserts that all iuternal
taxes, except those on spirits and tobac?
co, ought to be taken off, and the reve?
nue raised by duties on imports. Next
follows a bid for the soldiers' and sailors'
votes, iu the shape of a pledge to favor
such additional legislation as will extend
existing bounties to everybody who can
claim be was disabled iu the late war,
"without regard to length of service or
the cause of his discharge." The next
farcical propositiou, knowing how
strenuously the Radicals havo resisted it,
is that "tho franking privilege ought to
be abolished." Then follows a bid for
tho Labor Reform vote, in the shape of
a declaration that "labor, beiug the crea?
tor of capital, should enjoy a just share
of the mutual profits of these two great
elements of civilization"-a deceptive
o?anse so vaguely expressed as to mean
anything-or nothing. For the Ku
Klux Aet and the bayonet election Act,
it is claimed that Congress, in passing
these measures, and Gen. Grant, in en?
forcing them, "are entitled to the thanks
of tbs nation." Repudiation of the
publio debt, whioh nobody dreams of;
is denounced as a "national crime," and
I the hope is expressed that, some day or
other, there will be a return to specie
payments. Nor are the women forgotten
i in this all embracing platform. Their
admission to a wider field of usefulness
I is viewed with satisfaction, and they are
told evasively that "the honest demand
of any class of citizens, for additional
rights, should be treated with respectful
consideration." A canting approval of
amnesty follows, in the face of the fact
that the bitterest opponents of amnesty,
in its true and general sense, have been
the partisans of Grant ia Congress.
But the boldest hypocrisy crops out iu
the sixteenth plank, which declares that
I "the Bepublican party proposes to re
speot the reserved rights of the States as
carefully as the powers delegated by the
States to tho Federal Government," and
that "it disapproves of tho resort to un?
constitutional laws for tho purpose of
removing evils by interference with the
rights not surrendered by the people to
either the State or National Govern?
ment." The loss of our commerce, and
the fact that the enormous duties im?
posed by the Radioals npou all materials
that eater into the building of ships
have destroyed that branoh of industry,
is glossed over with the declaration that
"it is the duty of the General Govern?
ment to adopt snob measures as will tend
to encoorage American commerce and
Finally, and to crown all, the belief is
expresse! that "the earnest purpose, the
sound judgment, the practical wisdom,
the incorruptible integrity, and the
illustrious services of Ulysses S. Grant,
have commended him to the hearts of
the people." And thus shameless hypo?
crisy and slavish adulation combine to
make the platform of tho Grant faction
the thing we started out with dedaring
it to be.

The governments of Europe- are be?

emigration movement. Sweden, a coun?
try not too densely inhabited, ia fast
losing its hardy rural population, and
the Government has offered a prize for
an essay on tho best means of putting a
stop to the exodus. No plan to stop
emigration from Europe is likely to suc?
ceed as long as the emigrants are pro?
perly received and treated on this side
of the Atlantic The persecution of tho
Chinese in California has proved very
effectual in diminishing the voluntary
and involuntary importation to the
United States of natives of the Flowery
Land, and nothing has done so much to
encourage European emigration as the
attention paid to the wants of arriving
emigrants by the State authorities of
New York. The Swedes and all other
nations of Europe are welcome; and
while America offers them a free Govern?
ment, a free soil and equal rights, they
are not likely to stop coming, no matter
how many essays may be written to per?
suade them to stay at home.
PENDLETON.-George H. Pendleton is
not now taking much part in politics.
His law business, which is very large,
absorbs all his time. He has, however,
been consulted by the Democratic lead?
ers of Ohio, over whom he wields great
influence, and Mr. Pendleton is under?
stood to have advised them to send a
delegation to Baltimore that will endorse
Greeley and Brown. He thinks Mr.
Greeley rather an ill-favored pill for the
Democracy to swallow, but believes that
his endorsement is the best thing that
can be done under the circumstances.
As to a split at Baltimore, Mr. Pendle?
ton does not believe that there will be
any. Such an occurrence would be
sheer folly. I have ascertained from a
source not to be discredited that Mr.
Pendleton will shortly sail for Europe to
join his family, which is now traveling
on the continent, and that it is not pro?
bable he will return in timo to partici?
pate in the Presidential campaign.
