A coRRKsrosDBXT of the radtieali

the meeting were Secretary of Mate
Harlow, Col. Lyman Bridges, f3. W.
King, (Jen. Reynolds, Judge Bane, A.
C. Ilesing, Judge Brad well, and a number
of other well known political leader.
While the meeting was called lor the
purpose of considering the giibjeet of
merging the two leagues Into one, the
opportunity for Bporeh making was too
good to be lost, and a number of those
present took occasion to express their
sentiments on Hayes' Southern policy.
There was considerable diversity ,ol
opinion among the gentlemen present
Mr. King and others taking strong
grounds against tlio president, and as
serting their belief that if he presisted in
his present course he would wreck the
Kepublican party. Judge Brad well. A.
C. Ilesing and other saw tncy were
willing to give the president's policy a
lair trial, and II it did not work, the in
jury done to the party would be easily
repaired. The scope ot the discussion is
only a further proof ot the fact that the
Kepublican party Is much divided on me
Southern question, and that unless
lomething Is done to rcuuito it the party
must go to pieces.

The printing steal was perhaps the
most glaring in its raids on the

as the "Kepublican Printing Company,"
and the principal men in the company
were the clerk of the house and the clerk

$2,X'0.00Q ot the public money lor print

convention and nominate anotther candi
date; that after Lincoln was elected the
late ex-Chief Justice Chae called upon
him one day, when Lincoln asked him it he
knew of any arrangement having been i
suggested by Wade for calling a new
convention, whereupon Chase admitted
he did. and pulled Irom his pocket cor
