IIORITIO SEYMOUR'S CAREER.
TVhy Ills Present Nomination is Be
C , s ninnded.
From tit New York Sun.
Is it necessary that a man should be
a candidate in, order to be nominated
for the Presidency? Has the office
Bunk so low that no roan is to be con
eidcred available for it unless he has
pot a machine in operation to capture
it?,,, ijoratio .Seymour was never a
candidate for anything. Every office
he has held came to him unsought. As
far back as 1845, he was talked of for
speaker of the assembly. Silas Wright
was Governor. Mr. Seymour went to
aim and said: "ily name has been
mentioned for speaker. If it will em
barrass your administration in the slight
est degree to have me occupy that
place, or if for any reason you prefer
that another candidate should be clio-.
gen, just say the word and I will retire
from the field.". But Wright did uot
say the word and Seymour was elected
In 1&50, hea the two hostile wings of
theDemocracy came together iu the
State, Seymour was nominated for
Governor. But he was not a candidate
then. In 1852 he was re-nominated
aud elected, bat without an effort on
his own part, and hardly with his own
consent. Iu 1854 he was very anxious
to retire, but was driven into running
again. The only time that he ever de
sirred,., an office (even if he did then)
was'iu 1862. He saw and appreciated
the ' necessity of leading the party in
the right direction on, the war Lwue
He was a Union man, and he was re
solved that the democracy of New
York should be a Union party, what
ever it cost. He ran willingly and was
elected. But iu 18C4 he unqualifiedly
refuses & re-nomination. It was only
when. McCltllan's freinds peremptorily
demanded that he should sacrifice al
persoual considerations to the good of
. i . ..... . ' ' . . .
the cause,, tnat lie consented to , stand,
Nowninn whojollowed the course of
events in. 1 63 needs to be told that
Uov.beymour was not then a caud
date "for, the Presidency, The nomi
nation was forced upon him in a way
that admitted of no honorable with
drawal, and he consented to run. II
will r!ot now engage in scramble for the
Presidential" nomination. If' others
want the place, they can have
for him. He meets all overtures
with the frank and truthful statement
that he U uot a candidate. But if the
convention nominates him, he will not
decline. That is his position, as defin
cd by Senator Kenmn and others whose
relations with nun are most intimate
and who have never yet been mistak
en in regard to his true position. He
is indisputably the strongest man iu
the party, lor thirty years he was
the friend and associate of Tilden. There
has never been a difference between
them on questions of public policy,
lie suppurtede Tilden in his fight aginst
Tweed and in his war on the canal
ring. With the exception of a little
knot of personal followers, Tildeu's
friends are hw friends. Moreover, he
can lirilteln his support the entire dem-
ocratio party." His nomination would
bejso wise' that unless Mr. Tilden js
bent on sacrificing success to his griev
ance, it will come about in the natur
al order of events.' -
which has absolutely identified the
Monroe doctrine, in the minds and in
the passions of the American people,
with the assertion of our true national
position in the New World. The only
thing which led intelligent Americans
thirty years ago to tolerate the Clay ton
Bulwer convention was the plea made
for it by the American negotiators who
had blundered into the concessions out
of which it arose; that it involved a
recognition bj Great Britain of the
Monroe doctrine so far, at least, as con
cerned any attempt at extending the
colonial empire of Great Britain on the
shores of Central America. This plea
was blown to the winds within two
years by the conduct of the British
Government in regard to the . Buy
Islands, conduct which led Mr. Marcy,
in a dispatch to Mr. Dallas, dated May
24, 1856r to inform the British Minis
try through him that "the act of Her
Majesty's Government in establishing,
in apparent contradition to the express
letter of the convention of 1850, a col
ony at Bay Islands, has left a disagree
able impression on the minds of the
Government and the people of the
United States." This dispatch seems
to have escaped the attention of Mr.

in 1852 and 1856 will now be revived
with considerable emphasis by the tone
which the leading organs of British
opinion seem to be disposed to take in
commenting upon what one of them is
good enough to describe 89 "the haugh
ty and almost defiant resolution of the
A.merican Hause- of Representatives."
The people of the United States have
not claimed, and they do not as now
advised propose to cbum, an equal
voice with Great Britain in "securing
the freedom of the existing waterway
between the Red Sea and the Mediter
ranean." They are perfectly well aware
that Great Britain pretends to a special
and predominant share in the control
of that waterway in virtue of what she
regards as its vital importance to the
safety of her Easf Indian empire, and
they have at present no interest which
makes it worth while for them to ascer
tain whether this nretension of Great
Britain is or is not supported by "the Sll6 Of HOUSG SUM! L()t

' It is probably true, as the leading
journal of the Government party in
Great Britain says, that at the present
time any canal through the Isthmus of
Darien, "whatever route it may take
and by whomsoever it may be made,
will be used when complete more by
British shipping than by the vessels of
all other natious put together, not ex
cluding France and the United States."
This,ould not, however, have been
true liud such a canal been constructed
twenty years or so ago, when a Demo
cratic President of the United States,
contemplating the probability of ys
construction, gave I'almerston pretty
plainly to understand that the United
btates were even then in the mood to
put an end at onoe to the mischievous
and entangling Iiulwer-Clay ton con

ia not the intention of the people of the
United-Bute to acquiesce in the pet
niunenee of lhu conditions under which
we liive'sjnce' 18G0 permitted Great
Britaiu to recover all or more than al
of the ground lost by her before that
date, and it will bo well for those who
are charged jtjth .conducting the pub
luiJifltrfrTof Great Britain to bear this
in mind in dealing with the attitude
which has been deliberately assumed
by the President of the Unitied States
and by Congress upon this question of
the inter-occanio canal, nhen th
Ivuidnn Timfi declares tha ''Monroe
doctrina, even in its most restricted
hat, has never 'been admitted into

there is no possibility at al) that it can
be successfully contested, by any other

are hardly discreet and dignified, there
fore, when they hotly call upon the
British Government to "watch and if
necesnary to resist this claim."- The
oniy effect likely to be produced by
such language in this country will be
to lead Congress at once into co-opera

who has taken up his position with
equal precision and moderation, in se
