Stovcns will not support Greeley. Not
withstanding their opposition, tho lido hat
set In strongly In favor of Greeley, and It
is now nno of tho most probable of tho
probabilities of tbo future, that ho will bo
nominated at Baltimore. Tbo manoeuvres
of tho 'Timet,' Belmont nnd Stovcnt will
then bo as impotent to prevent his elec
tion, as thoy wcro to prevent hit nomination.
The radical i-ahty is endeavoring to
mako capital out of tho fact that Oreoloy
says ho will withdraw from tho presiden
tial contest in tbo event of a nomination
being made at Baltimore, and uro offering
tho democrats much superfluous advice
about preserving tholr self-respect, not be
ing made instruments to elect u rcpub
lican, etc. Greeley has tho sonse to fore-
too that without thorough co-operation be
tween the democrat and libcruls, neither
he nor any other opposition candidato to
Grant can be elected, and prefers, of
course, the abandonment of tho contest in
tho beginning, to going through n laborious
and anxious campaign only to bo defeated
at tho closo. We cannot regard Mr. Groe-
loy's intention to withdraw in caso nomi
nations aro made at Baltimore, in tho light
of r threat toward tho democracy. It it
a precautionary exercise of wisdom which
ho, or any othor candidato tlmllarly situ

A reformed DRUNKARD and gamblor
who flourishes somewhoro in tho cst,wbose
surname is Doo,and whoso christian name
is Robort, hat announced his intention, af
ter "careful and profound" deliberation, to
cast hit voto for Gen. Grant. "Mr. Doo,"
tayt tho radical paper which contains tho
interesting and important information,
"loves his follow-man nnd hopes to bo in
' strumcntal in tho hands of God in reform
ing the poor drunkard." What connec
tion the now-fledgod philanthropist, who
rejoices in tho name of Doo, tcci between
"reforming tho poor drunkard" nnd vot-
ng for Gen. Grant, wo are not told, but
Doo understands hlmsolf, of course, and
all good peoplo will wish him success in
hit reformatory labors. If Doo is to be nn
instrument in thohandt of God In reform-
Ing tho poor drunkard, let him voto for
Grant by all menus, and If Grccloy should
bo elected, Grant shouldn't disappoint
Doo't effort! by falling Into old habits.
Mr. Voouukeh bus supplemented his
late Indiscretion by a letter to an old
Terre Hauto friend, Judge llrlggs. Ho
reiterates hit hostility to Mr. Greeley, but
announce! thut he will under no clreum
stances support Grant. "I shall stand by
my tinccro and life-long principles," tayt
tho Sycumoro. "If for this course I urn to
be condemned," ho continues, "I am en
tlrely content. I would not take any
other for all the honors tho world hat to
give." This it highly dramatic and
sacrificial. It It a sad tight to teo a man
to wedded to principle that ho will not
yield a prejudice or two to save the
country. Wo can lay our hands on demo,

From the lloston AdTertiser
Tho laiiRuntfu of tho treaty it capnhlo of
a construction that wo rocede from a posi
tion In which, as Mr. Fish has shown, wo
wcro nuito within our richt. This wo havo
not done, nnd this wo ought not to do. It
it moro than England ought to ask, nnd it
is more than wo can honorably grunt. Wo

From t ! Plnlftilelphia Inquirer.
Wo aro asked to withdraw a claim that
was never lust, wiso nor cenerous, and
thnt never was in harmony with tho
treaty. Briofly, wo nro asked to do that
which It is right to do, and wo owo it to
our honor as n nation to do it. This is
not the time for tho censure of mon, nor
tho sticking to u point too nicoly. Tho
graver question, whether or not tho treaty
shall "bo saved, it beforo tho sonato. If
the president wcro wrong In permitting
tho claims for indirect damages to go Into
our "caso," he Is right now in asking that
they sball bo withdrawn, nnd every in
stinct of probity, and every material in
terest of tho couutiy demand that the sen
ate shall sink all loss important issues and
