How the Ticket is iteeuvctl.
;.s a man of ability, and that Mr. UowAUP,
lor Attorney, is" au able man, and that
Mr. Gm:c.opv U a. gooi a man a his
oarty eonll have selected." With the
remainder of th ticket the L'lxpn'nr is
displeased, but. principally on account of
its being composed of renegade Democrats,
which is in fact one of its highest recom
mendations, for several rcasou. First,
it shows the Catholicity of the Republican

A few Thoughts upon the I'nnvnss.
The Republican party in Michigan have
now a ticket in the field, which could
have been put up for no other purpose
than tn be elected. It doserves to bo elec
ted and must be elected. Rut no matter
how great the prosperity of a party, no
ticket was ever yet nominated which wo'd
up and eotuolidate, even leycnd its pres-j
cut character, a powerful political party, !

A Very 'siy ltccord L.rMr. l)oit6la to face.
There are not u few Douglas men here -

Douglas is not only the inventor of the
self-government, but that lie enjoys the
exclusive use of the patent tj the com
plete impediment of ull gosling discover
ers and uneasy tinkers?. When he speaks
of it, it is "my plan," he speaks of
when he chances to call it a principle, he j crty.
never fails to call it " my principle." 3fr. H. II. Emmons, from the Commit
From this principle he most ostentatiously j tee on Resolutions, reported as follows,
deposes that he never deviated. Hat tho dU t!t4e rvV unanimously accepted,

appears, was the very man who lirst sug -

ti e statement is astounding, but it is none

thd attention of our readers to the follow

bull' s great speech v.t Chicago, on Satur
day week ago, which was fully reported
:a th' .Pit ami Tribune.
Let us follow this history along a Httlu
further. 2j process of time it was sup
ported that Kansas would wish to be ad
milted into "the Union as a State. Her
people, you Temember, had formed one !
con-itituti on, .known ns the ' lopeka Lon-stitu-jon,'
' establishing a free State. It
was iiccesi ar t to meet this with some-
thing, mul a bill was prepared in the Sen-

In Chicago, for instance, under Fillmore's
Administration in ltf;VJ there was collect
ed at the Custom House Slll,80S 80,
and six men who were paid 2,802 12
ruiploycd to collect it. For tho year end
in-' June o0. lolj, there was collected at
the saitie place 115,002 10, and .sixteen
j were employed to collect it, and paid
I fr their services SI 1 , 20 a cost of ten
! l,tr ?CI1t now, for what was done for four
j years ago for two per cent,
' Mr. Trumbull further .stated that there
were gome points where the expenditures
for collecting the revenue were much
worse thau Chicago, and he enumerated
the following instancei : At Wilmington,
Delewan , there was collected in 1857, 82,
OUl 05, and it took eight men, at an ex
pense of 15,818 :J8 to collect it. At
Annapolis, Md., there was collected the
same year ;7 1 25, and it took four men
at an expense of 08.' 12 to collect that
um. At Oeracoke, in .North Carolina, in
1857, 82 55 were collected. To perform
this great financial achievement seven men
were employed at an expense of 2,o0l,
Collected in 1857 was 15 2, thno men
were employed to collect it, and paid
for doing it 7,050 05. At H.-iTalo, there
was collected iu 1857, 10,140 5:1. To
collect thii ten men were employed, and
paid 10,800 51 for their services.
