We are Stuisied fromtl Infurnation

1lntiinations of State c1Ucra made at
the State Convention in .June.--T'here

The Kiigstree Star say :
'Ihe friends of General Ilaugood want
n0 notnintion for their choice, snap
ed from a hurried conventiot or
based on prejudice against any ther
gentletumi lwhoso fiends press him1 I
for.vard for the nomination. They
fPel assured that when the people o'
the Suato have calhly looked over the
ground and compared candidates they
will settle upon IIgood as the best
man-~not imply beciuse he has fewer s
f tults but, because he has more virtues
and superior mloeitil.
''he Star is right, in desiring a do
liberate selection for governor. It
woul 1 he uijitt to General Iagood
or Gr'rnl Gary or anybody else who
may be Ithe choice of time people, to
ilo:uinate hi in June and allow his
elneies to say that he would have

The Third-Term Fraud.
Indepantdent and anti-Grant Repub
licams profess to see a decided weak
eniig of the third term boomit, and the
reasons they give are not witlhotn
weig'1t. Tie programme of the third
teriers was to capture New York,
Pennsylvauiu, Indiana and Illinois in
the early spring, before opposition
could crystallize, and then to scoop in
the solid South. Coukling and Cameron
put their job through with hard work,
but IllinoiL halted, and Itdi:una kicked
right out of the traces. N,>w the re
