The correspondent ttory of how Grant
acquired nu urst cuttago ut Long Jlrau:h
runs thus: It has been said Unit certain
owners of real estate at tho West Heiid,
among whom woro Thomas Murphy,
John ilocy, and John Chatnbwrlin, made
up a ring for tho advancement of thu
price ot real estato in that part of tho vil
lage, and in tho beilef that it would tend
to raise tho prico of the surrounding nron-
erty, thoy made up a purse,,in and partly
or wholly paid for General Grant's and
ueneral I'orter's estate to luduco them to
loeato there. Of course they wouldn't
be fools enough to leave nny such transac
tion susceptible of proof." Somo of tho
politicians wont so tar as to allege that
there Was somo connection between the
president's acquisition of his first cottage
and tho appointment of 'ihomns Murphy
as collector. On tho other hand, the pres
ident s friends cImIui that he bought and
puid for the property in the usual Way;
but the county records at Freehold show
u state of tilings altogether out of tho
usual course of legitimate truffle in real es
tate. The records show that Howard
Potter deeded tho first cottage to the prus-'
ident on tne4th day of January, 1870, for
S3J,0U0. 'J ho ded wus recordod
February 1, 18 TO. The deed was
sent from Washington to a
distinguished lawyer of Freehold by
Ueneral I'orter, with a note stullngthat he
ent It by direction of tho president, und
requited the lawyer to have It recorded.
The luwyer took ibe note and deed to the
county clerk, and the deed Was recorded.
Under that deed tho president held thu
property until March. 1872. when It wus
accidentally discovered by Mr. Holmes

Washington, Juno 18. Ono of tho

made an estimato of tho strength of Mr,
Grcoloy boforo tho Baltimore convention.
Notice is taken of tho fact hero becauso
the o 111 cor Is ono of tho shrowdest observ

ment as to tho future is received with ro
snect everywhere Ho says that ho has

the several states 317 nro favorable to
Grccloy and only thirteen against him.
theso being from Oregon, Delaware, and
ono from West Virginia. Ho also says
that thoro Is a powerful effort making on
tho part of some of the old hunkers of tho
democracy to defeat Greeley beforo tho
convention by a coup f etat, and that let
ters nnd cireulnrs in great numbers havo
been confidentially circulated for the pur
pose. Tho scheme, as developed, Is to se
cure the states of Arkansas, Georgia, Ohio,
Illinois, Texas, and Jew Jcrsoy, which, it
is hold, would do much toward controll
ing tho convention. Thu ofllcpr. however.
unhesitatingly admits that Greeley will
bo nominated, and that tho content In No
vember will bo a very close one.
a letter received at the ureeley and
Brown headquarters, to-day, from one of
tho loading .Democrats ol Indian, dated
Terro Haute, Juno II, says that Judge
JJowlinL' was selected at Delccate-at-Larue
for the State, beating Dan Voorhecs by a
vote of 13-1 to 37. Tho letter also savs
that tho latter gentleman failed to rcccivo
rococnizutlon. and that his vnultir.e
ambition o'erleapod itself, and. Indeed, that
he has got no followers. Thirty dolegatcs
havo.been chosen from that Mate, and they
aro a unit for Greeley. Preparations are
maKing lor a moaster mass-meeting, in
favor of Greeley and Brown, at Warrenton,
Vs., on Weduesdoy, tho 26th inst. A spe
cial train will be run from hero and Alex
anileria, and it ir expected the meeting
will bo one of the largest ever held In the
State. Warrenton being tho home of Gen
oral Mosby, the latter will bo invited to
speak at tho meeting in behalf of Grant,
nnd say nil the good; he can dovise of Cse

to hear Mosby expluin the reason for bis

In 18Cs. General Grant received 221

theso, it Is conceded, beyond all contro

eregato ascertained electoral voto for
Greeley of 1C0. Ho will requiro but 34

So far from tho chances being about even
between Greeley nnd Grant at Baltimore,
for that Is the real Isuo there, tho
chances for Grant In tho country havo
ceased to bo any wuv equal. It Is almost
possible, even nt this time, to indicato a
clear majority of tho electoral college for
Greeley, and, as tho campaign progresses,
tho popular revolution will' steadily gain

Old Gentleman" Aro thorn any hous

Young Lady " No sir. There is a new
house being built for Mr. Smith, but it Is
the carpenters who aro building."
Gentleman "True; I sit " corrected.
To be building 1 cortainly a different
thing from to be being built. And how
long has Mr. Smith's house been being
built?" 6
Lady (looks puzzled n moment, nnd
then answers rather abruptly) "Nearly
a year."
Gentlemnn " How much longer do you
think It will bo dulng built?"
Lady (explosively) "Don't know.'
Gentleman" I should think Mr.
Smith would bo annoyed by its being so
long being built, for tho house he now occu
