If anything of tnoro than ordinary im
portance has transpired in thli city since
tho dato of my last Jottor, I havo failed to
hoar of it ; nnd consequently I will be
compelled to mako "much out of a llttlo,"
In this, my second letter from the "Gar
den City."
THE CONVENTIONS.
On Saturday last both the democratic
and liberal republican conventions met in
this city, for tho purpose of lelccttng delo
Springfield on the 26th. Both were well at
to tho conventions to bo hold at
tended, and among thoso prcsont were to
bo aeon many of tho most ronowncd and
influential men of both parties in this city
The democratic county convention, in
point of numbors and intolloct, was far
above any convention hold for tho samo
purposo in this city for many
voars.. It was a convention of
tho peoplo. and its action may
bo taken as a fair oxprosslon of tho will of
the masses on the political questions of tbo
day.
And the samo may.bo said of tho lib
oral ronublican convention. That tho
liberals are stoadlly gaining strength in
this portion of tho stato, no fair-minded
person will deny.
Of tho fact, that tbero are thousands of
honest republicans now standing aloof,
saying nothing, awaiting the action of tho
Baliitnoro convention, tbero can bo no
doubt. Onco that convention has en
dorsed the Cincinnati ticket and noml
noes, as it surely will one-fifth of the
men now looked upon as "straight re
publicans, " will bo found in full follow
ship with tho reform movement.
As for those democrats who
refute to support Greeloy and
Brown, they nro only helping
to re-elect Grant, and givo tho party now
in power another four years lease of tho
reins of tho government.
THE OILUIRT-roST LIBEL SUIT,
to which I referred in my last lottor, did
not tormlnntn a was anticipated it would.
Tho jury could not agree, there being five
for conviction and sovon for acquital.
So you sco wo are to bo regaled with an
other "hitch" botweon Miss Gilbert and
the 'Post.'
. DOLLT VARDEN.
Undor the abovo head a new paper
made its appearanco in this city last week.
It is a neatly printed twenty-four column
sheet, and is devoted to tbo exposition of
thloves, gamblers, bawdy house, etc.
n short it is a weak imitation of tbo New
York 'Police Gazette,' that used to bo-
only that it does not evince as much abil
ity oJltorially, or in any other way. A
hort.time sinco a paper called tho'Town
Talk' made its appearanco in this city,
but owing to its vulgarity and general ob
scenity, was promptly suppressed by tho
police authorities, and anyono caught offer-
ng it for sale was fined and imprisoned.
The 'Dolly Varden' is nothing moro or
less than the 'Town Talk1 under, a new
namo.
DOLLY VARDEN TLAYED OCT.
While speaking nbout "Dolly Vardon"
let mo say that "Dolly" has near about
run her race, and will soon bo considered
"among tho things that woro." It is a
fact that but few respectable ladies are to
bo seen upon our streets wearing anything
that partakes of the Dolly Varden stamp
of goods. Whenever a woman makes her
appearance on the street dressod in this
sort of apparel sho may rest assured that
sbo is tho observed of all observers, aud
could she but hear the remarks mado
about her, I feel confident that her Dolly
v arocn dress or polonaise(?) or whatever
you may choose to call it, would find its
way to tho rag-bag in double-quick order.
Do not understand mo to say that re.
spectable peoplo do not wear this sort of
goods, for I know better ; but I do say
that Dolly Vardcns aro fast Leim? laid
aside by respectable ladies, and tbo time Is
not far distant when to see a woman
dressed in this sort of goods will be a suf
ficient evidence that she is one of that class
or women whom 1 uo not deslro hero to
name.
THE FOURTH.
Just now the dealers in flro works in
this city uro in a high state of excitement
over tho fact that tho city council havo
adopted a resolution forbidding tho firing
or flrecruckors, pistols, etc., within tho
city limits on tho Fourth. Most of the
establishments that deal in this kind of
stock having laid in largo supplies befuro
too resolution roferred to was passod, will
bo heavy looser if tbo city-fathers do not
" let up, " and permit thoir uso within tho
city on that day. A meeting has been
called and a committoo will bo appointed
to confur with tho city authorities for tho
purposo of scoing what may be done in re
gard to tho matter.
HORDE I1ACEH.
The ruces at Doxtor Park will com
mence on tho 3d and continuo for tnreo
days. A number of notod horses have al
ready arrived and othors aro oxpected, to
arrive in time to tako nart In tho races.
A big timo Is anticipated.
" THE CALIFORNIA HOY."
vill soon mako another attemnt at tho
wonderful feat of riding two hundred
miles in twelvo consecutive
hours. He undertook tho task on tho i8th
of last month, and aftor riding one bun
dred and seventy-thrco miles, and being
somo lew minutes ahead of time, ho
mounted a blind pony : and after colne
onco uround tbo ring, thepony fell, throw-
Ing bis rider, and injuring him so merely
that ho was compellod to givo up the at-
tompt to mako tho remaining twenty-seven
miles within the time allotted.
THIEVES.
Ui late thero has boon a number of the
boldest nnd most bare faced robberies
committed in different parts of the citv,
A few nights ago, a gentleman a rosldont
of tbo west sldo, returning home at a la to
hour, when within a few steps of his own
house, was he accosted by tbreo men and
politely requested to stand and deliver
which he did, handing over a fine gold
watch and a considerable mm of money.
This is but one instance of tho many that
hare occurred in thli city within a few
woeki. The police seem to be utterly
powerloit to bring the guilty parties to
justice.
But enough, for this time. Anon.
WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENCDE-
WAsamBTOH, D. 0., June, SSth, 1)72.
A POLITICAL CALU.
Thero it quite a lull In political excite
ment the put two day. Prior to the
meeting of the Fifth Arenuo hotel con
ference there was a slight ripple made on
the political turface, growing out of what
its action might be. The Radical were
especially hopeful that the conference
would chooso a candidate and thus destroy
Greeloy before the Balllmoro convention,
but, alas I thoy now givo up all hope and
freoly admit that tbo democracy will
endose him; 'this is alio tbo case with
those democrats who deslrod an out-and-out
democrat nomination but who now
seeing that tho endorsement of the Cin
cinnati nominees is virtually settled, speak
with no uncortatn sound of their intention
to work for, and vote for them, if nomi
nated. Even tho New York 'World,' bit
ter and outspoken as it has boon, is gradu
ally preparing to bow to tho wishes of the
democratic masses.
The Norfolk 'Journal,' one of the live
liest, most sprightly, go-ahead, and ably
conductod newspapers in the country, has
been and is yet, one of tho most earnest
opponents of Horace Greeley's endorse
ment by the democracy, and says, speaking
of the Now York conference fizzle : " Wo
aro not now so sanguine as wo wore that
Mr. Greeley's nomination will not be rati
fied by the Baltimore convention. We
shall bo rejoiced if Horace Greeley is re
pudiated at Baltimore; but if he shall be
acceptod thero, wo mean to advocate his
election as cordially as we have opposed,
and, as wo still oppose his nomination. We
hope to have a third candidate; but if that
be impossible, let tho whole power of our
party, in all tho effectiveness of its organ
zatlon, bo brought to bear in favor of
Greoley against Grant."
This is an honest, out-spoken opposition
with regard to a candidate. But when the
great democratic Sanhedrim, in all its
mighty power and wisdom decides finally
on tho question of standard bearer then,
as in this case all opposition should, and,
no doubt, will cease, and such words as
spoken by tho 1 Journal' aro "apples of
gold set in pictures of silver."
GOOD NEWS FOR GREELEY AND DR0WX
in the shape of letters from all parts of
tho country, predicting tho success of tho
liberal ticket, not only at Baltimore, but
its ultimate triumph in November, are be
ing received daily by tho hundreds by tho
committee in charge ot the movement
here, whose headquarters aro at the St.
Jiarc hotol.;
WILL NOT ACCEPT.
The frionds of Mr. Groesbeck hero de
clare that he will not permit himself to
bo used in any way that will embarrass
tho Baltimore convention. They say that
ho will hardly tbankjiis injudicious friends
for the empty and somewhat doubtful
compliment of being nominated president
of the United Slates by 10 bolters from a
conference, and all of the bolters being
residents of Cincinnati.
THE CAMPAIGN SLOGAN.
The radicals havo determined on tbelr
campaign shout. It is to be ku-klux, reb
els, payment of the war debts of the South
copperheads, intimidation of tho negro
voters, etc., otc. In a word, thoy will
make it appear that the war is still go
ing on. Every issue and question present
ed will bo ignored, and the cry of rebel
and tho copperheads will have the changes
rung on them, as it was during the last
campaign. There is no longer any music
in the words; they were effective in their
day, but have out-lived their former use.
The Grant .organs hero the 'Chronicle'
and 'Republican' give the key note and
soundthe timbrel pretty loud on that tunet
ana mo rest oi me musicians will join in
tbo chorus. Red Handed Dick, the buc
caneer of the Spanish main, or any of the
raw head and bloody bones dlmo novels
will not begin to equal tho Grant Journal
during the presidential campaign, in tho
bloody, thrilling and sensational. Those
who delight in having their blood curdle
in tbelr veins and their hair stand on end,
should givo over N(d Buntlino's novels
and subscribe to Grant's own the'Chron
iclo,' of this city, until after tho election.
I can guarantoo at least one talo of blood.

Rev, Ex-Sec. of interior, Ex-Senator Jas.
Harlan, editor and past proprietor, and
chief organist for Grant & Co.
TRIALS OF SPEED.
Thoro will be two trials of speed this
summer. Tbo presidential race, and the
horso raco. The former will bo between
the old gray, H. Greeley, and the bay bob
tail, Ulysses G. Tho raco will be pretty
warmly contested, with the odds in favor
of tho old gray. Tho jockeys, in this race,
will transfer their quarters, from this city,
to baraioga, during the summer ; a largo
number of senators and members having
engaged rooms thero, where will be fixed
up and sot up, all tbo ossontial political
matters incident to a campaign. To givo
zest to tbo usual round of amusement the
colebratod raco-borsos "Harry 'Bassott"
and "Longfellow," aro to contend for the
supremacy of tho Amorican turf in their
gioat four milo raco. In accordance with
tho views of all tho interested parties theso
famous horses will not run at Long
Branch, in July, as originally Intondod ;
tho contest having been transferred to
Saratoga. Thero will bo tens of thousands
of-people from evory section of the couutry
to witness thts contest, as it will bo equal
to the palmiest days of Boston fashion
and Potomac. So between tho presiden.
tial and the horso-raco, Saratoga will be
quite lively.
OBANT BESrOMblULE,
Tho treaty of Washington ha been
saved by the withdrawal of the absurd
claim for indirect damages, but who can
withdraw us, as a nation, from tho public
gaze, and save us from the contempt
which we, through the action of our dunder
head Ulysses deserve ? Grant is pretty
well aware of ihe obloquy which ha at
tached to his stupidity and he was gene
ous enough to state that Secretary Fish
was not wholly responsible for the conse
quential claims, as they were In accord
upon the subject. Flfh, who Is a trlflo
thin-skinned, and did not care to bear the
whole burden of the dlsgraco, and so
Grant, whoso hide is as tough a tho
leather which he has tanned, shares the
burden with him. Thero was not much
generosity in this, as Grant cares no more
for public opinion than did Nero in his
day of power, and like him he will fall,
probably not by the sword as did his pro
totype, but lower undor tho contempt of
hit rellow cltlzons than an American ever
yot fell, and he will find that there is some
thing money cannot buy honesty's
respect.
0The following occurs In a report of
the New York Free Trado Conferences
Parke Godwin May I ask the gentleman
a question? Mr. Pillsburg Certainly.
Mr. Godwin I heartily agroo with all the
gentleman has said against centralization,
but I ask him If It is not truo that Mr.
Greeley has approved of all theso cen
tralizing measures? Mr. Pillsburg The
Ghristaln world never quotes from St.
Paul previous to his conversion."
Laughter and applause.
a9Ttiis is the way in which Professor
Fawcett, the famous liberal member of the
British parliament, became acquainted
with his wife, no was at a social gather
ing on the evening of the day wbon tho
telegram announced tbo death of President
Lincoln, and heard from a girl of elghtoen
the exclamation. "It would have been less
loss to tho world If every crowned hoad of
Europe had fallen 1" Ho askod to be in
troduced to this girl, who has been his
wife for flva years, and is the most popu
lar speaker and woman in England.
BtTho Now York 'Evening Post has
a most admirable editorial on tho election
of Col. Claflln. It says that no modest
woman would take such a position ; that
no white regiment would think of offering
it to an Immodest woman ; and that tho
Eighty-seventh by doing so, has disgraced
colored men everywhere, and strengthen
ed tho fast dying feeling of contempt for
the negro race. Colonel Fisk, who paid
for his election with balls and suppers and
excursions, ruined the reputation ot tho
Ninth regimont pretty thoroughly; but
Colonel Claftin buying her place by the
paltry brlbo of now uniforms, will destroy
that of the Eighty-seventh beyond re
demption.
You havo my best wishes in your en
deavors to rally for united action, all tho
elements of tho opposition to that system
of policy which is now controllng the gov
ernment and peoplo of this republic, and
wbleh not inappropriately has been called
"Grantlsm." It is time that the people of
the North and of tho South be onoe moro
bound togothor in tho Inspiring conscious
ness of a common nationality, of common
rights and of common duties, and to
this end it Is nocessary that traditional
barrlors bo brokon down, and that tho
policy of force by which tho mombors of
civil strife are assiduouily fanned, and tho
blttor feelings of past conflicts, nro kopt
alive for partisan advantage, give way to
those moral ngonciea of ron0tnou and
fraternal intercourse, without which our
republican system cannot long enduro.
It Is timo that the despotism of party
spirit be broken, which, in tho shapo of
fiersonal government, rule our national
egislaturcs and tho vast organization
of office holders, fostors corruption, dem
oralizes and corrupts publio opinion, and
stands in tho way of every true and
thorough reform; nnd to this end ills
necessary that tho embodiment of that
depotism, tho present administration bo
defeated in Its effort to continuo Its power,
and. that thus a freo flold bo opened for re
formatory movements, untramraolcd by
elfish partisan control.
Whether wo bo ablo to accomplish nil
we design or not, wo cortainly can ac
complish this, if, for that purpose, wo unito
in an energetic effort, and our success will
be a great atep In tho right direction,
Although I cannot bo with you to-morrow,
I hope to bo ablo to co-operato with
with you to that end in tbo course ef the
present campaign. Truly yours,

WEARING OF THE GREEN,
ANTICIPATING ANOTHER RIOT IN NEW YORK
A the Orangemen have determined to
parade as usual on tho 12th of July (battle
of the Boyne,) it is of some importance to
understand clearly the bearing of the law
passed by the last Legislature regulating
processions. Tho first section prohibit
any procession trom using any rail way
track or track as to impede the free pa
isge of cars, while the second prohits all
procession or parade occupying or march
ing upon any street of any city to the ex
clusion or interruption of other citizen in
their individual right of use therof (ex
cepting the National Guard and the Police
and Firo Departments,) unless written
notice of the object, time and route of such
procession or parade be given by the chief
officer thereof, not less than tlx hour
previous to its forming or marching, to
the police authorities, who have the powor
to designate how much of tho street, In
width, itcan occupy, also to provido a
sufficient escort to protect persons and
property, and maintain the public peace
and order.
The pollco commissioners, it will be
seen from this, therefore, have noitber the
powor to allow or forbid the Orange so
ciety to carry their banneis and to have
meir Dan us piay tunes which they consider
ospcclal proporty. Providing the six
hours' notice of the timo and route of the
procession is given, tho police authorities
are oouna to protect them in tho designa
ted line of march. This, we bave said, is
the law. It remains with the Orangemen
to say whether it is wise, after tho terrible
scenes of last 12th of July, to put it to tbo
test. Americans in foreign lands do not
celebrate in street parado tho battle of
Bunker Hill, or tho battle of Brandywino,
or the battle of New Orleans, or anv
other battle of glorious memory; why,
then, cannot our north of Ireland friends
try and imitate their example, for tho
sake of harmony, and good will, oven
among their own countrymen hero. In
other words, why not let the battle of
Boyne, as tho Yankees would say, "slldo?"
New York Exprtit.
It is tbo easlost thing In tho world to
work up another battle of tbo Boyne (12th
of July) street riot by injudicious newspa
per utterances, for or against. According
to the Now York 'Star:' "Somo six
thousand Orangomon aro determined to
parado on tho 12tb of July, and although
they are promised, before they ask it, the
protection of both polico and military, they
announce that they will carry arms for
thoir own defense.
The Orangemen are poor ignorant fan
atics, who think they serve God by Insult
ing Catholics. They havo announced
their determination to parado with armt.
They will display their insultltg bannors
and play their exciting music, and do all
in their power to provoke a broach of the
peaco. uo we want this sort oi thing in
America?"
Tho 'Herald 'says;
Last year the Orange procession nearly
produced a bloody riot in our streets, al
though on a mattor of principle the
Orangemen were protected in their right
to parade. The triumph was not tho tri
umph of tho Orangemen, but of tbo free
institutions of tho country. As
the law still authorizes such processions
as tbo Orangemen proposo under these
restrictions, they of course havo a right
to parado if they think propor. If thoy
do, we do not believe tboy will be inter
forod with by the Catholic portion of tbo
Irish-Amorlcan population. The latter
will have sense enough to mind their own
business. But wo boliovo tho procession,
and every demonstration of tho kind to ho
in bad taste and in bad spirit, unworthy of
uur iruu insmuiions ana unbecoming
adopted citizens ; and wo hope to soo tho
timo when Orange parades. St. Patrick's
parados, and every other importod parade
will bo voluntarily abandoned. Tho

with powder and ball and shell nnd sbot,
are all opposed to astraightout nomination
on impracticable issues In tho Presidential
