Bets aro being made in New York that
Kelly, the Tammany bolter, will not re
ceive 10,000 Democratic votes. Unfortu
nately for the Democracy of New York, it
is not in a condition to spare half that num
ber, Tu ere is no truth whatever in the story
that the Treasury refuses to receive the
standard silver dollar in certain cases. This
is ft matter over which the Treasury has no
control. The silver dollar is by law a legal
tender for all purposes.
A good deal of comment has been made
upon the wonderful achievements of Blaine
and Conkling in the management of their
party; and doubtless events have lifted
them into new prominence as presidential
candidates. Mr, Blaine would seem to
have the inside track from the ability with
which he has led his party to victory in

Tub New " Orleans Times 6ays: "It
has been calculated that if a single grain of
wheat produces fifty grains in ono year's
growth, and these and succeeding crops be
planted and yield proportionately, tho pro
duct of twelve years would suffice to supply
all the inhabitants of the earth for a life
time. In twelve years the single grain wil
have multiplied itnelf 244,140,055,000,000
times." The total given indicates only tho
one-millionth part of the product, at tho
end of twelve years. Tho true figures are
244,140,625,000,000,006,000 grains-a bulk

The action of the New York Democrat!:
convention causea a good deal of exciting
conversation and interesting speculation
among Democrats everywhere. While a

clear the decks for letter action next year.

where the interest comes in. It was quite
generally supposed that the large vote
which the Greenback candidates received
would set them up permanently in business,
but more careful inqurics lead to another
conviction. The Greenback party as a
mere party of finance never had much
hold in any Eastern State, and probably not
ono-half of these who voted the Greenback
ticket believe m Grecnbackism. They took
tho course they did from general dissatifac-
tion with affairs, or what is called sore-head-
cdne&s. The leaders went out from both
parties, and denounced lwth, but a large
part of the followers were Democrats who
were willing to vote for anything to beat
the Republicans. Hereafter they will voto
the old ticket, and the contest will once
morobe between the Democrats and Republi
cans. In other words the Greenback party
is demolished because it had no cause for I
existence, aud next year it will fall away
and finally die, its members drifting back
to their old party allegiance or trying to or
ganize a new party. The Greenback party
in Maine was little else but a party of re
pudiation, of communism and of wild no
tions that could not withstand one defeat.
It is a collapsed bubble, and will never be
heard of again as a dangerous force in po1
itics. The Republicans claim that the will
ingness of the Democrats to coalesce with it
damaged that party a good deal, but time
alone can tell as to that. Doubtless the
Democrats confidently hoped for a different
rult or they would have taken a different
and more independent course and many of
them feel that it would have been better to
hive preserved their independence entirely.

From our regular correspondenv
The gubernatorial nominations b tho
'Vmvrti fVinvfntinn rpfpntlv held at
Syracuse have, of course, been the topic of
the day, and considerable feeling is mani
ifestcd all through the city against the do.
ings, or misdoings of "Tammany" on that
occasion. But as your readers are already
familiar with the result, I shall leave them
to form their own opinion as to the proba
ble effect the famous "bolt" will have on
national politics, and proceed to the discus
sion of the next inont important event in
New York, viz: the coming great interna
tional walking match at the Madison
Square Garden for the famous Astley Belt
which Weston brought home from London.
Mr. Atkinson, tho representative of Sir
John Astley, is expected to arrive here in a
few days. Shortly after his arrival there
will be a meeting of those persons interested
in the next match for the Astley belt. A
strong effort will be made to exclude every
body from the match who has not already
made a record in a six-dity match,- and this
effort, if successful, will keep out of the
match a majority of the "American party,"
as it is culled, composed mostly of short
distance walkers. Rowell and "Blower"
Brown are exorcising at the Manhattan Ath
letic grounds and at the Park Reservcir,
Haziel is taking to the country roads, McrJ
ritt is doing most of his work at Grcenpoiat
and Panchot is at Bath, L. I. The other
men arc tucked away in odd nooks and
corners and taking walks out in the country,
and all are doing well except Panchot and
Dutchner, the former having injured his
foot and the latter been lax in his trailing.
Talking of match.. (not friction), there
arc two others on the tapis, vi.; a swim
ming match for tho championship of
America is promised to take place to-morrow
off Bath Long Island. Tho entries
are Captain Webb, of England; G. H.
Wade, of Brooklyn; G.Wcrham, of New
York; W. II. Daily, of 1 California, and
Ernest Von Schoening. And in tho billiard
world, preparations aro quietly being madu
for tho Collendcr Combination Billiard
tournument, which was abandoned last
April, it being deemed impracticable to
hold it at that season, as' it was then
unlikely to arouse that public interest In
tho game which it was specially designed
to awaken. Tho games will bo arranged
on a larger scale than in any previous
tournament in America. The Combination
tournament, as its name indicates, will com

Mr. Christian Bors, tho Twedish Consul,
yesterday took the sworn statement of
Captain Larsen and his crew in relation to
the sinking of the bark Cojumbia off tho
banks of Newfoundland on September 4th.
The Captain said he did not doubt that it
was a whale which struck his ship. He al
so acknowledged his indebtedness to Captain
Deddess, of tho steamship P. Caland, who
rescued them from their boati, for many
kindnesses rendered himself and men. The
