The Nominee of the Charleston Convention.
A tmr are aware tlie Demo-
rratii;,Nationa1 Convention will assemble
at Charleston one week from next Mon
itor. Every Tenon is anxious to know
who hat tlie inside track for tlic nomina
lion. A majority of the Democracy of
thii county are for Senator Docdla, while
llfSTT.n, CRACKlNniDOF, LANRail'l PlKtiCK
all have friend. Tho Democracy of this
rwinty, we believe without an exception,
are ready to give a vigorous cuppoi t to
the nominee, whoever he rimy he.
We cannot venture a prediction a to
who will secure tho nomination. We
have long since paid that Senator Doto
I ah would go into the convention with
about a hundred vote, and that no ma
terial additions could he got to thnt num
ber, and we have had no reason to change
that opinion. Id short we look upon
his nomination as out of tho question.
So far as tho other candidates are con
cerned wo are inclined to the belief that
Gen. Lank is the utrongost man could be
nominated. We do not doubt that with
liiiu as the nominee the enthusiasm of the
Democracy throughout tho L'uiou would
very soon reach a height that it has nev
er heretofore Bttained. We think, how
ever, that at present Honator IIuntf.r, of
Va., has a better show for tlio nomina
tion than any other man. lie is an un
exceptionable man, but we would prefer
old Jo. Lank.
The Republican and the Methodists
Our neighbor of tho Republican got
himself into troublo by bis lying about
the Demcrats making war upon the Meth
udist church, ami ho is compelled to tell
a dozen more "libs" to get out of it.
Our neighbor has made the thing redicn
lous, so milch so it is not worthy of seri
ous attention, but we propose to bold up
a pretty little mirror to him so that he
may see just where he does stand. Let

day, most of whom took an active part
in their own behalf; nil whom are exhon

If the opposi.ion can rejoice over a bare
escape from annihilation in Connecticut,
by fhould not the Democrats rejoice
over the redeption of a Slate that has
een in the hand of tho opposition since
1852. The Democrats have a fair work-
majority in the legislature. The vote

Paridlefunl, Kcpubllcmt, . .
Tho vote is the largest ever polled in,
tho State. Uhode Island con be set down '
certain for the nominee of the Charles- j
ton Convention. The woik of revolution is
has .begun in tho Northrcn States that '
will sweep ltlack Republicanism from ex
stance in November.
The Great "Mill."
The great, am! we may add disgrace
ful, fight between lleenan and Shyers is
to come off on Monday next. We will
hear the result about the first of May. We
are of tho opinion that lleenan will be
whipped. We would, however, prefer a
n met em. result, ,mi oiny on me ground ;
that wo don't want an Englishman to get
the belter of ono of our own country men.
We regard the affair as demoralizing and
disgraceful, nnd aside from national pride
we don't cure a "cuss" if both are whip
ped. All cx biilige 'liys the "Rcliieia
Roy" is certainly in fine condition. Mr.
Wilkes writes that in his I. oxing exercise
the American Sampson hail just dislocat
ed Ciisick'i, jaw, while a red bump upon
the forehead of Jack McDonald, which
he brought into London, was attributed
to an unintentional but playful left hand
ed tap from tho tians-Atlantic giant.
These gentlemen aru his "trainers," and
probably tho more they get battered the
greater is their pride in their pupil.
The Legislature did not repeal the law
which provides for ths publication of the
general laws. They disemtsed it until ihe
discussion cast lie people more than the
publication of the laws would cost, and
then let it slide. Wo are asked almost
every hour why the iho liiwsarenol pub
lished. This wo aro unable to delinilely
answer but we give it as our opinion that
it is because thero is tint one cent of money
in the Stato Treasury. Under the man
agement of the I Hark Republicans the
great Stato of Ohio is "dead strapped."
Fine stato of affairs.
Fillibusters in Trouble.
Two of I he subordinate officers of the
Knights of (ho Golden Circle, at New
Orleans, publish n card denouncing a
General Riikley, tho commander-in-chief
as an imposter. About l,f00 men were
enrolled at New Orleans, under tho mis
representation that plenty of money would
bo furnished lo assist them to join Juarez
in Mexico, where, for their aid, land
grants were promised, This induced
many to join, but there is no evidence vol
of any actual movements.
The Reason Why.
Some Rlack Republicans are profuse in
their praise of the Ohio Lcgblatuio for
adjourning a few days earlier than usual.
This, at liist sight, seems to have liccn n
commendable a t on the pint of thai au
gust assemblage, but. when we consider
that they remained as long as there was a
dollar in the Treasury, and when it was
empty broke for home, we think they are
deserving of little credit for an early ad-
pm turnout. Ruts adjoin n horn a lurmerV
crib when the corn gives out.

The Covode Outrage upon the
President--Indignation Meeting last Evening--Denunciatory
Hon. Wm. S. Groesbeck and
A largo and enthusiastic meeting tin
der the auspices of the Young Men's
National Democratic Association, was
held in llannan'a Hall last evening
James J. Farnn in the chair to take
some action on tho Covnilo resolutions,
recently adopted in the House of Con
gress. The meeting was called to order
about half-past seven o'clock, when, on
motion of Mr. Gallnger, a committee of
live, consisting of Thomas J. Uallager,
Alexander Long, Lewis Sill'ord and Da
vid Snelbaker, was appointed by the
Chair to prepare resolutions expressive
uf the sense of the meeting.
During tho abscence of the committee
the meeting was addressed by Hon. Win.
G roes beck, who said he regieted the ex
traordinary and wonlon a-taaiilt that had
been made on the fflici'd character nt the
1'iesident. .There is no impunity from
ollicial or private crime, hut there is a
settled plan of proceedings provided in
all such cases to seen re a fair and satis
factory investigation, and protect char
acter from wanton and irresponsible def
amation. A grand jury that would
make and publish a report in any other
form, and so scandalize certain citizens
whom it might wish to injure, would not
bo safe in our midst. The House of Rep
resentatives of the United States is but
the grand jury of the nation, Biid if the
President has committed an impeachable
offense, he should bo impeached by the
House and tried by the Senate, All this
is plainly laid down in tho Constitution.
There is a legal way to proceed against
tho 1 resident as well as against a citizen,
'" " '" '-'' ways are illegal and return r-
aide. The obje. t in view was not to ini
peach tho President, but to investigate
"whether he has, by money, patronage,
or other improper means, sought to in
lluence tho passage of any law appertain
ing to the rights of any Stato or Territory
and also investigates whether any officer
has, by combination or otherwise, pre
vented, or attempted to prevent or defeat,
the execution ol umj law now upon the
statute hook; or whether the President has
failed or refused to compel tho execution
of any law thereof" If Mr. Covode is a
lawyer, and should say ho has been ac
customed to drawing what are termed in
chancery "iisiiiiig in us, wo cion l toler
ate such practico in this part of the coun
try, If some one has not tho courage lo
stand up in the House and make a specif
ic charge, such a resolution as that ol
Covode should not be tolerate I for a mo
incut. It was not the design to impeach
the President, but to servo a party pur
pose. The election is near, and the Dem
ocratic party must be wounded in the
erson of their President.
Mr. Groes'iack alluded to the resolu
tion of condemnation and censure passed
upon (Jen. Jackson, ami the zealous man

At iho conclusion of Mr. Oroesbeck's
remarks, which were warmly applauded,
Mr Gallagher from (he eoinniiltco on Res

Mr. Gallagher addressed tho meeting at
some length in support of ihe resolutions,
denouncing tho mean, sneaking attack of

General Lytle also spoke, in responso

adopted, and, on motion of Clmrles Rule,

Covode's Smelling Committee.
Tho dirty attempt of an obscure, bar
room politician of Pennsylvania, named
Jons Covoui:, to manufacture capital for
the coming Presidential contest by inti
mating charges against Mr. Hi (Hasan's
honesty is meeting with a just and with-
ering rebuke from honorable men of all
purties. The Clack Republicans aro great
on "Smelling Committees" which servo
the purpose of creating intimations and
suspicions where there aro no grounds for
charges. The Moston Courltr, an oppo
sition pa or, speaks of this ullitir in the
follow ing language:
THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
It is manifest, from this view of the
subject, that the President not only is
right in tho points presented by him, but
thai he discharges his simple (Inly as the
Executive head of tho nation in ollering
his remonstrance to tho insidious, and tut
parliiiineiitary, and dangerous method
adopted hy the I louse to investigate vague
charges against him. Such an investiga
tion we hold to ho altogether inconsistent
with the principles and provisions of the
Constitution, and in itself of the worst
possible example. If there is in posses
sion of members of tlio House serious
loundation for grave charges against the
conduct of the President, in the adminis
tration of his high ollico, this would con
stitute ground ol impeachment, which is
the only constitutional means provided
lor trying him. If there are such charges,
they are cither definite aad specific, or
they are not so. Jfnot, they should not
be countenanced by the Home, which
otherwise becomes a starchiimber, an in
quisition, or grand jury for inquiry, not
lor accusation. If they aro bo, then the
course of procedure is chilly pointed out
by iho law, in tlio way of impeachment.
Tlio President claims that this po ver of
impeachment is tlie only authority pos
sessed by the llou-e in the premises, and
lie is right, fit f.u l, the people cannot
legiird with too much in ligimiion the con
duct of tho House, ll it had any sense
of justice or candor, a matter of this sort,
it anything so lndeliuile were counten
anced at all, would have been referred to

The Great Breach of Promise
a Decided Changed of Front.
vated it by borrowing money of hi ni on
several occasions. He became quito a
frequent visitor at her house, and she as
arrant sorts, promised to marry her. Of this
are to her wounded Affection, but with
the rellection that her whole life has been
scrutinized and sifted and analyzed ev
Union jery innocent flirtation, every gracious
smile bestowed upon a former admirer,
every act of thoughtlessness and impru-
Our probably remember that
dome months ago, a Miss Cat-slang, of St.
Louis, sued Mr. Shaw, a wealthy citizen
of the same place, for having broken his
promise to make her his wife. Tho jury
gave her the munificent verdict ol one
hundred thousand dollare damages. She
was contented, but Mr. Shaw was not; so
he moved for ancther trial, and obtained
it. It has just been brought to a close,
and Miss Carstang gets just nothing at
all. It will bo her turn now to apply for
new trinl, though tho experience of this
last one will probably not inspire her
with any very ardent desire far its repeti
tion. Miss Carstang, it seems, kept a board
ing house in St. Louis, and altar casually
making Mr. Shaw's acquaintance, culti
promise her sister was tho principal wit
ness. upon this second trial tier wnoie
life has been subjected lo a merciless scru
tiny, tho result of which was a conviction
on the part of the jury thnt her rocord
was not sufficiently spotless to entitle her
to damages. She leaves tho court, thero
fore, not only without any ricenniary sol
deuce weighed in the nicest balance otlo
gal criticism; thnt she herself has been
subject to the mortification of sitting day
after day and hearing tho unfavorable
comments of tho opposing counsel upon
her character, nm! to all sorts of insinua
tions and inuendoes, if not the direct
charges that she was a female adventuress
that she had ensnared the defendant in her
toils with the purpose of despoiling him
of his wealth, and that a paiulul notorie
ty will henceforth attach toher name.
Tlio experience of the law which Miss
ftlK,''K "l,K "ot "e without its
moral, mid it will allord no encourago-
moid to others of her sex, whoso affec
tions may have been trilled with, to carry
their griefs into court, imless they feel
e.itifidclit that there is no act of their past
life upon 'which an injurious construction
can be put, tind that they have been pat
terns of propriety ami miracles of pru
dence; mi l unless also they can divest
themselves of all sensitiveness of feeling,
and are willing to sacrifice the delicacy of
tho sex for a doubtful pecuniary compen
sation of nn injury which loses all its hold
upon our sympathies when offset by dol
lars and cents.
It was quite time that such a lesson was
given, for these breach of promise suits
have become disgustingly common
throughout the country. Half a dozen
heavy verdicts seem to have stimulated
scores of w omen, more or less young, in
various quarters, to similar prosecutions.
It was becoming absolutely dangerous for
a man ol wealth to be civil to an unmar
ried lady. We trust they will now breathe
somewhat more freely. X. V. Times.
The Democratic Sentiment on
the President's Protest.
Since the day Gen. Jackson sent his
celebrated Protest against iho action of
the United Stales Senate, we have never
seen a document more universally ap
proved by iho Democratic press of the
country, than the Message of President
linchanan protesting against the gross
and mi warrantable assumption of power
by the Covode Committee. Every Dem
ocratic exchange has published it with
editorials highly commending it, endors
ing Hot only its doctrines, but its tone and
temper, and uinong the whole Democrat
ic press of tho Stale, but ono single Edi
tor has dared so fur to outrage tho Dem
ocratic suntiment of tho country, as to de
nounce either the Message or its auth'or.
