THE VICE PRESIDENCY.
The Philadelphia Press is out in
favor of Colfax for Vice President,
and lay that "as to Pennsylvania, we
do not think there is a doubt that
people prefer Vice President Colfax.
Aa It stands 110 delegates are in
structed for Colfax, and we believe
he vill have enough more in the un-
instrncted delegations to make his
vote 230 on the first ballot."
On the contrary the Philadelphia
North America urges the nomina
tion of Fennavlvainan, regarding
such a nomination as absolutely nec
essary to carry we Mate, it eaya :
"Colfax has served faithfully and
efficiently, and would doubtless lion
or the second term equally. Mr,
Blaine or Senator Wilson would car
ry into the new sphere the same
excellent capacities whech distin
guished them now, bnt none of these
gentlemen meet what we believe to
bathe abaoJnte requirement or the
jnoment, and this is the proper and
distinguished recognition of the great
State of Pennsylvania. We look for
such a broad view oi the matter as
will lead delegates from every State
to discard their, purely personal pref
erence and examine with the utmost
care the requirements of the politi
cal situation. It is idle to sneer at
disaffection which, though they
spring from personal causes, tnay
produce the most unfortunate gener
al results, and it is reckless feebleness
to conduct the campaign in which is
staked the life of a great political
parry as if it were but a struggle for
the aggrandizement of an individual.
Among Pennsylvanians, at home or
abroad, let there be an end of con
eidering the prospects of any other
State for the vice-presidency, and let
the unanimous voice of our people
be for Grant and a Pennsylvania.''
Ths Ohio Siate Journal says that
it seems that Gratz Brown, who is at
the antipodes of Greeley on the tariff
nestion, is also as far as the East is
om the West on the question of Am
nesty. Gratz as appears from speeches
and writings which are now coming
to surface again, not only demanded
that the right to hold office bnt the
right to vote should be denied to all
rebels. He demanded "retaliation."
In 18C5 he wrote a letter to J. R.
Winchell, of Hannibal, in which he
explains a "remark about eternalizing
our hostilities." He says oaths will
not be sufficient "if the constitution
of Missouri intends hereafter to
rely upon oaths alone, it would be a
failure." lie then proceeds in the
strongest language to express his be
lief that "the loyal and disloyal can

Is the National Woman Suffrage
Association Meeting held at New
York, on the 8th insL, Mrs. Stanton
is reported as "calling upon all wo
men to work against Greeley.'' A
Mrs. Done way of Oregon, proposed to
pardon the white hatted philosopher
if he would promise repentance, while
Mrs. Hooker "wouldn't trust him if
he were on his knees and would
promise reform." There are quite a
number of men who rejoice that Mrs.
Hooker bob tains neither relation of
wife, mother or sister to them, if this
is a specimen of her vindictive
ness Mrs. Done way took the floor
the second, third and fourth time
once to say that "Grant had
bone but no brain?, and Greeley all
the brains but no back-bone,' which
was a naughty comparison for the
Oregomaness to use, and to notify
the convention that she had a young
Oregonian at home "two and a half
years old, weighing forty-two ponnds.'!
Why the youngster wasn't nominated I
for the Presidency does not appear I
from the reports. Miss Kate Stanton I

be confounded with the Woodhuljof

men alone, and the' decorum and
speeches were very far abov the av
erage of political meetings in Coium
bus. We cannot close this chapter with
out giving just one more resolution.
It was passed by the colored people
of Columbus, at a meeting held a
few evenings sin?e, and is the last
of a series of resolutions endorsing
Grsnt and Denn'uon :
Resolved, That we are opposed to
the elevation ct Mr, Greeley to the
Presidency, because whatever the ue
signs of those originating the Liberal
movement, its effect will be the res
toration of the Demccra-.c party to
power; furthermore, such a return
from good to bad would result in the
epeal of Congressional legislation
nnon which the enforcement of the
14th and 15lh amendments depends
With regard lo the tariff Mr. Wrceley
has already dtolurel that, in the
event of his elcctior, he would sign
all bills presented by Congress,
whether he approved of t!em or not ;
and as Mr. Greeley a high tariff no
tions are clear to him, and ante date
the birth of his devotions to the lib
erties of the colored man. be would
not scruple to sign bills directly an
tagOListic to our most cherished
rights. Judging Mr. Greeley by pub
lished declarations, and regarding
him as altogether too whimsical to
fill the executive chair of the nation,

T. BUCHANAN READ.
We find theloil jHing brief sketch
of Mr. Read, in tho Xew York Eve
ning Post, of a recent date. Mr.
Read died at tho Aster House, in
NewYoik,on Saturday May 11, in
his fifty fiith yer.
Variously gifted, ho held an envia
ble rank both among the poets and
the paiuters of his time. Of Lis pic
tures, "The Lost PleaiJ,"and "Un
dine,'' were perhaps the best. His
painting of "Sheridan and his Horse,"
has, howtter, attained a mti':h higher
popularity, while one of his earlier
painting, in which tin fairies are rep
resented as coniinir upon a human
skull, ha been ht night of altogether,
Aotbing could oe more daintily con
ceived or more gracefully cxecnled
than Puck, wearing a morning glory
tor a cap, looking in wonderment at
his ghastly relic ot mortality. In life
nature, Mr. Read's "New Immoral
was his longest poem, and the btory ol
the removal of a Pensylvanian family
to the prairies of tin West, with all
its episodes of Christinas tide and
Harvest-home and Fourth of July,
was well told; but it wa in tender
lyrics that he excelled The expiisite
"Theinaiil thai bimisthc waarior'ssash,"
and the mubic.il stanzas in which he
describes the "Ve&uvian Hay," enti
tled 'Drifting," have bec-n learned by
rote by many who are ignorant ot
their authorship. Hut in poetry, aa
in painting, his most popular effoit
was not his best. The song of "Sher
idan's Ride," struck a chord in the
bosom of the nation, and gave him in
a day a wider reputation than he had
previously won by years of consistent
and conscientious devotion to art.
Years azo. when he lived in Flor
ence, and more recently in Home, hia
house was the nathorinr point of the

Tue Xew York World gets off the
following in regard to the political
status of Theodore Tilton :
A painful rumor is current ia our
neighboring city of Brooklyn to the
eacct that a personal difficulty of a
grave character has amen between
the spirit of Demosthenes and tbe ac
complished editor of the Golden Ass.
It appears that upon the nomination
to the presidency of Mrs. Victoria
Woodhull by the Convention for giv
ing everyDodv everything;, Demos
thenes callec npon Mr. Tilton to fulfil
me expectations of tbe spirit would
aroused by his interesting biography
of that gifted woman and "come out''
in her support. To this Mr. Tilton
replied that he hed already "gone in'
for Ilorcce Greeley, in sign whereof
be invited the attention or the illus
trious orator to a bran new white hat
which he was at the moment wearing.
lhe enraged Greek without another
word, raised the right hand which
had essayed to shake the Macedonian
throne, end knocked the white hat
over tne wearer's eyes. A high joint
commission, consisting ef btephen
rcarl Andrews, Uiigham loung and
the ghost of Fanny Wright, is now
sitting cn tbe case, which it is hoped
may be settled without blooc'shcd.
