Chicago, Monday, May 14, 'CO.
Since our last visit to this city, many,
and almost nnparralleled changes have
taken place: Palatial residences have
taken place of less imposing bouses, and
hetels that were then the pride or the city,
have been torn down, and in their stead
are to b erected nsagnifieent marble struc
tures. Bricks have given way te stone
and asarble, and there are, t-day, ia the
city of Chicago, some ef the most pld
public and private buildings to be found
a the continent. Like an exhalation from
the ground has this queenly little city
sprung into its present dimensions. It
seems almost fabulous, when we reflect,
that all this baa been done even in our
recollection. That these extended streets,
those marble faced private residences,
tkaia Immtma businesa houses. tie
chequered net work of rail roads, thia hum
ofbusy life that is every where preseut, have
II been created sprung into reality
within the last twenty-five or thirty years
Itia wonderful, gloriously wonderful, and
illustrates not ealy tbe energy, the will
and the determination of this Anglo-Amer
ieaa race, but the advantages of free insti
A writer who wss in attendance st lb
Charleston Convention, said that be saw
tboughout that Southern city, no eviden
ees of improvement except in one place-
that there was one house being built, and
that in its erection negroes were carrying
lhe bricks and mortar ia half barrels on
their Leads, to the workmen. That
throughout tha whole city the sound of tb
trowel, or the noise of tho hammer, was
scarcely heard. How uolike this picture
ie the one bow presented to my view.
Hundreds and thousands of houses are in
course of erection everywhere The stir o
active life surrounds me on all aides, and
very thing, aad every person, seem te be
wideawake. Is not this grest difference
between tha Southern and this Northern
city to be attributed to the difference in
their "domestic Institutions?" Tbe one i
a city of free men, where labor is respects
Lis the other a city In the very heart of
slavery, where labor make tha white man
only cocqusl to the negro. The one is the
full personifications otfree institutions, the
other of the "peculiar Institution."
Up to the present writing, it is almost
impossible to guess what will bo the ac
tion of the Republican Convention.
f rest many of the delegates aro here and
taany distinguished men, among whom we
totice Tburlow Weed, Tom Corwin snd
Mach speculation is indulged in none
howefir, as regards the platform of prio
ciples upon which the coming campaign Is
lobe fought, for an inflexible hostility to
the extension of slavery Is tie untversA
feeling; but in relation te the proper man
tote the standard bearer in the approach
leg fight, there is some differences.
Mr. Bewsrd bse aiany friends. His emi
neat ability and superior autesmsnship
have drawn around hl tu a host of adsul
ring and warm friends, but it is our settled
convictloe, thst he will not be the noiulooe
of the Cooveotioo. Lincoln, Bstcs, Me
Lesn, Wade and Careoron are protnlueut
and we would not be surprised if either of
these gentlemen should be thu fa vol ill o
the Convention, or thst twu of them should
be plsced on the san e ticket. Lincoln for
President, aod Cameron for Vice President

ia both Peonsylvsnla aod the West.
The delegates from New York aro fur
Seward, but there aie a great uiauy "out
eiders" from that sauie State, who are nut
for LIsu. His friends make sn srguiatu
in Lis faver, lhat no Itepublicau can as

but this ia answered by a declaration re

While Mr. Lincoln is the Jirtt choice ol
Illinois, a part of Indiana, a part of Iowa
and a scattering vote in maoy other of the
States; for tteond choice he is decidedly
the most popular man. Beiog thus fur mi
dable, after favorites ard is posed of, w
aheuld not bo surprised if he would be the
nominee of the Convention. This, howcv
er, is bssed more upon the present sur

be able to write with more certainty about

The political elements aro iu terrible
commotion to-day. The friends of the

active, industrious, determined. Tho

At the urgent request of many of my
friends, I am induced te offer myself to you
as a candidate for the office of Sheriff with
the approval of tbe Convention that op
poses the Democracy.
I know not that I have any claima over
the many good men that have offered them
selves, for I regard them all as worthy of
your kind considerations, and should Jre
ceive a due share of your wishes for their
prosperity. And while I award to them
all that they cau claim from me for their
advancement, I cannot but think that you
will place me in the same category. I have
resided among you some sixteen yeara
without asking for an office, and natter my-
self mat l have become intelligent enough
iu your manners and customs, to fill this
position to your satisfaction, and ask of
you, through this medium, your support.
Some of you may think that I might come
among you and ask the faver. But I will
ask, would it elevate me in your estima
tion were I to kneel at your feet the hum
ble suppliant for efiice. I have loo high an
opinion cf your intelligence to entertain
tue inougui lor a moment. I know this
custom has prevailed from time immemo
rial. But is the time never to arriye, when
the aspirant for efiice must abandon the
erroneous idea that you have not intelli
gence to judge of his capability and char-
acter without bis condescending te aslon
ish you with the fact that he is the most
fair aad upright the moat qualified, and
not the leaat of all, the moat honorable and
worthy, and if you are not satisfied wilh
