BEING so much “Poor Coal” hi the market, the undersigned would beg leavAo call the atten tion of theettizeas ot Portland 11 I tie above named Coal. 1» is free from impurities, and when used with rea sonabie care burns entirely to ashes, which are of the deepest r« • of any Coal • nown. An equal quantity ignited will yield at least onc third more heat dum any other coal. It ;* more quickly ignited than any other anthracite (thus sav ing expense in kindlings); while after ignition, with a proper reduction ot draft, it will outlast all other coal, and remain longer on lire. A much less quantity of this coal can be kindled and will retain its lire, than can bo possibly used ot white ash, this tact will result in large savings in spring and tail, and ui such times as require only a moderate degree ot heat. In sho»r, ir is the most economical coal known and needs but a trial to give it Ihe preference over all others. We would also call your attention to our other su perior Coals, such a.- Lehigh, Johns. Grisccna, and olher White and Red Ash Coals, suitable for Furnaces, Parlor Stores, Ranges, tic. Also on hand HARD and SOFT WOOD, all oi which will be sold at the lowest prices for cash. JBVANH Si.

The (op|ierbeaiU have seized upon the klea that the uses of adversity are sweet and lliat toad-like, it has a jewel as a compensa tory fixture. They have the next thing to scripture as an authority lor the conceit, and it excites not onr special wonder to see them searching lor the batracbiaii jewel that shall reconcile them to the wolnl adversity that betel them when <»en. Ulysses 8b Grant was nominated lor the Presidency by the Repub lican party. A metropolitan journal was the first to cry eureka! Mr. Manton Marble ol the New York World, a man who seems to enjoy a monopoly of brains among Democratic edi tors as complete as Vanderbilt's monopoly of stock among railroad meu, thought he had hit upon it at the very outset, and thereupon sot up a mad cachinuation in which he still persists. His idea was that by a constaut dwelling upon the fact—the discovery ol which was due to the concentration ol the rays of his genius upon the biographical sketches written by the elder Grant tor the Ledger—lliat the Christian name by which the Republican candidate is commonly known differs trom his baptismal name and Irotu that by which he was registered at West Point, and that, to the still further complica tion ot the nutter, he once had a nickname, all the popular effect of his gi "at deeds and the splendor ol his public services would be completely neutralized. There was a certain deceptive plausibility about the idea that quite turned poor Marble’s head. For what can he more edifying to the profound student ot atiairs of state and the workings of the machinery of a great government than to1 observe the queer combinations that may be made ol the Christian names, Ulysses, Hi ram and Simpson, and the nickname, Sam? Charades, anagrams, rebusses and such stale trivialties are mere vanity relatively. But it must be confessed that even Marble's pretty efforts to please become in time the reverse ot amusing. To the surprise of every one it has been found that sucli is the inherent de pravity ot the human heart that at the tenth repetition even the tremendous force of the grand combination “Hiram Ulysses Simpson Sam” is measurably exhausted, and that a nation’s gratitude to its principal defender cannot be appreciably weakened by that for mula of words. But there be other geniuses in the country than Mr. Manton Marble, though of less emi- 1 nence; ami besides, political as well as relig ious truth is sometimes hidden from the wise and prudent and revealed unto babes. It was unto a babe, probably, that it was reveal ed that the weak point in the Republican ticket is the fact that Grant is unable to make a speech. It escaped the recollection of tbe political suckling who first proclaimed the truth, that Giant was not singular in his reticence, and that Washington and other men of like historical importance were as speechless as he. Poor baby, he hadn’t found the jewel, alter all. The people don’t care a fig tor speeches, but show them a man that will act, honestly, bravely, wisely, and you shall see how they will take him to their hearts and thrust upon him honor and power. And so the search went on. The Knights ol the Golden Circle were all out as eager as the Round Table braves for the Holy Grael’ Cmlebs for a wife, Japliet for his lather, or, to revive a legend still Iresh in the memory of this generation, Douglas lor his mother in 1800. As bad luck would have it Donelsou, Vicksburg, Chattanooga and Appomattox allbrded a good answer to the allegation ot ‘‘Hiram Ulysses Simpson Sam,” ana the re joiueder of speechlecsness was promply and successlully met by the unanswerable sur-re joinder ol Grant’s eminently wise, efficient and economical administration of the War Department. But nevertheless the jewel is found. It happened in this way; Giant is now rusticat ing in the West, recruiting his health and strength lor the arduous duties which his country will require ol him for a term of at least four years Irom the 4th ot March, 1809. A select association of whiskey ringers in the guise ol newspaper correspondents follow him. The other day he visited Georgetown, Ohio, where the elder Grant formerly had a tannery, and to Georgetown went one of his escort. These fellows apply theirjournalistic microscopes to the minutest incidents of Grant’s tour, and fearfu ly rack their journal istic brains in the vain hope that something in the political capital way may he made of them. Anived at Georgetown, the enter prising young man bethought him that the paternal Grant had once clearly and palpably snubbed him. He at once determined to investigate the “old man.”. Peradventure here might be the jewel. He at once subjec ted all the old men and women in George town to a rigorous examination—and found tile prize I The fact is the Republicans have made a mistake in nominating the son, for according to the traditions of Georgetown senility the father used to have some enemies in that -obscure burgh. A living witness testi tied that Jesse had a bad habit ol writing lor the papers. The same deponent even went so far as to affirm that Jesse hail written po etry ! Another ancient citizen, whoso phra seology is of itself sufficient guaranty for his intelligence and veracity, said “he was the elussest old cus I ever see.” But the climax is yet to come; the last witness deposes as fol lows ."‘Wall, there was another fellow out here in the country. He’s dead now, but he could 'a told ye a heap about old Jess; hated him wass'n pizen, he did!” Dead!—and with all that information about “old Jess” buried with him in the tomb! Well, well, ’tisenough, without the cumulative testimony of the de ceased and lamented “other fellow.” We must give up Grant. —Mrs Elizabeth Cady Stanton, writing of the Woman’s Club in Now York, says it is pro posed to admit geutlemeu to the galleries to listen to the speeches, and to hear “the pale, thoughtful brow,” “the silken moustache,’’ “the flowing locks,’’“the tuauly gait and form,’’ toasted in prose and verse. Tbe New Oeelaraiiou of War. SPEECH OK SENATOR MORTON. When .Senator Morton ot Indiana makes a speech it is always worth listening to. Hei e Is what he said in the Senate upon the Dem ocratic nominations and platform: I have read the resolutions adopted bv that convention, the piat|onn ot principles i't has aid down, and up,,n which its candidates have been placed; and I wish to rail the at tention ol the Senate to the issue that is pre sented to the country by this platform and bv the character ol these candidates. Crenel al tyrant, in his letter of acceptance, said, "let us lmve peace; - but the Democratic party by their convention in New York have said,“let us have war; there shall be no peace.” They have declared in substance, I might sav perhaps in direct terms, that the re construction ot these States under tins sever al acts of Congress shall not be permitted U* stand, but shall be overturned by military lorce If they get the power. They have tut nounced that there shall be no with-meet of our troubles, except upon the condition of 'he triumph ot those who have been In the rebellion. Let me call your attention to a part of tbe ei htb resolution In regard to the very question. In speaking of the recon struction ol the States they goon In say that the |mwer ls> regniate onTrage eatats with each Mate, making no difference betwera kiy al .Stales that bare been at ps-as-y ami Mans that have Ires in rebsHHoa, putting them aM U|>m tbe same tooting. “Ami that any attempt by fungrem — any wlmirirr; ’ •to—s u i— .“-. p- if it ihi nnheiMi a. it ysm phase, ' to steps ive any (Hate 4 this right, or inter •err with its rss-retoe, is a flagrant uamjalnni 4 pawer s I cel, ran g*vd sn warrant In the ('-■nstcniHHi; and.

Him convention has catted upon the rebels of the South to regard tbcac government* or ganised hj authonlv ot art* of ('ongrem by the people of tboae Slates a* usurpations, un constitutional, and void, and lia* tbeteby inyu-d tbeui again to inautieriion and re bellion. That is irhat the resolution means. Hi at is where the Democratic party has placed itself and its candidate, that there shall be no acquiescence in the action of Congress, hut that continued resistance is and shall he llietr policy. They have replied to General Grant by sav ing, "there shall be no peace, but tbe war shall be reuewed.” There eau tie no other policy lor that party unless it acquiesces. If it does not accept these re construction acts, the re can be no policy but that of resistances and a renewal ol the war. They declare these reconstruction acts to be unconstitutional and void. Being void, no body is bound to regard them; they have no authority over any one to coerce or to punish; and may he resisted by any one with impun ity. That is not the language of this resolu tion, but it is the substance and tbe meaning ol it; ami in consequence of this it received the endorsement and the approbation of the hundreds ol rebels who were in that conven tion Irom the South, men who organized the rebel government, and organized and led the rebel armies in bathe. This, then, is the issue, a continuance of tbe war; a renewal of tlie rebellion; because it is either that, or it is submission and acquiescence to what has been done But, Mr. President, we are not left even to seek for it by inference. We have a letter of General Francis P. Blair, written, I believe less than one week ago, and this letter has been endorsed by that convention this after noon by his nomination as their candidate lor the Vice Presidency. After reading Blair’s letter which we have already published, Senator Morton continu ed. Mr. President, that is the Democratic platform. General Blair whatever yon may say fit him is a bold, out-spoken man, and bespoke the sentiments ol that convention. He says, "upon these sentiments I want to stand betore the convention;” and upon those sentiments he was nominated. There fore. I say that the language of the Dem ocratic convention at New York to the whole country is. war; resistance by toroe ol arms to Congressional legislation; the overthrow by force of arms of the governments that have beeu erected in the rebel States under the laws enacted by Congress; the continuance of this rebellion ; continuance or this strug gle, in a somewhat different lorm, but still the same struggle.contending tor the same principle, it is now announced formally, not at Montgomery, not at Richmond, but at Naw York. The country need not be at any loss to understand ihe character of the contest upon hich we are entering. It is not one of peace and acquiescence, of con solidation whereby the ravages of war may be repaired; but it is a new declaration of war, a new announcement of the rebellion uuder somewhat different circumstances, but Muder circumstances formidable, dangerous and solemn. Let the couutry look the strug gle in the lace. General Blair has said truly tiiat all that is said about greenbacks and bonds and ques tions ot b nance is mere nonsense. The great issue is the question of overturning the new State governments by force, the restoration of the power of rebels, er as they call it the white men’s government in those States; and all the rest is leather and prunella. We owe a debt ol gratitude to General Blair tor bis frankness. There need be no deception prac ticed now, and there can he none. There can be no other issue presented substantially to us but that of the future peace of this country. If Seymour shall be elected upon that piatlorm, he stands pledged to use the army of the United States tor the purpose of overturning the governments that have b* m established in the South by the voice ot the whole people, at d by tuat army to place tbe power back again into the hands of the rebels. They were there with him in that convention. They have given to them their counsel. They have endorsed Mr. Seymour, and the conven tion and all have endorsed General Francis P. Blair. The great issue underlying the whole con test, and we have the solemn declaration ot their candidate for Vice President to that effect, will be the renewal of the war, to overturn the State governments that have just been established uuder the acts of Congress. General Blair lias relieved the Republican party of a gaeat deal of labor. He lias unmasked the enemy with whom we have had to deal, and he has placed before the country the very issue, peace or war.
