We publish elsewhere a letter which haa been banded us by Mr. James M. Scovel, in which he endeavors to justify his "eccentric behavior" a few days since, or rather, we should say, he utters a wild philippic against such persons as have been tngaglng In the field sport of hunting him "like a partridge to tho mountains." We have cheerfully opened our columns to the gentleman for his own defense. We know of no one who Is supposed to be more able to make an excuse than Scovsl, and we therefore give room to his own argu ment to the detriment of that of his new trlcnd, the New York World. That the writer has utterly and entirely failed to justify his conduct Is evident to any disinterested observer. Dis letter is a tissue of misrepre ; scntations, wild denunciation, and useless appeals to his own conscience. What ice appeal to is the enlightened intelligence of the citizens of his native State and the opi nions of ever) honorable man, we care not what may be his politics, and not to a moral monitor whose perceptions have been per verted by treachery and Ingratitude. Let us look, however, at what the honorable Senator says in extennation of his desertion of party and violation of promises. He goes back to the election of lion. Johit P. Stock ton, and examines the record la regard to the election bv a plurality rule in the joint convention. What may be his object in so doing is hidden from us. What had Mr. Scovel in February, 1808, to do with the original election of a gentleman : whom the United States Senate had declared not entitled to a seat on its f oor ? Who author ized Jamkb M. Scovel to sit as judge and releree on the action of the highest delibera tive body in the land and yet this State Senate ; or, inflated with conceit and intoxicated with vanity, presumes to say that Mr. Stocktoic was wrongly ousted by a majority of the upper house of our national Legislature! The audacious assurance thus evinced would do honor to Balzac. But passing by the impropriety, the irrevelance of tbe quota tion, let us eee what the writer says of tho Convention which elected Stocktok. He Bays, "It (the plurality rule) was passed by Republican votes in joint meeting, against my protest." lie thus endeavors to throw the blame of the illegal election of Mr. Stockton on the Republican party, totally ignoring the fact that in a joint convention which could ehct by a lurgc majority a Democratic Senator, the Democratic party, having the power, must be responsible for any law adopted. II the Re publican votes, without the aid of the omnipo tent Scovel, was able to pass the plurality law, then why was it that they were utterly unable to) elect their candidate? No, Mr. Scovel, the Democrats, who were friends of Mr. Stockton, used their influence to secure the plurality rule, and on them, and not on the Republicans, rests the responsibility. But while taking the trouble to set Mr. Scovel right, we cannot see that tho ques tion of the legality of the election lest year has anything to do with the present case. The Senate has unseated a member from New Jersey. It, and it alone, is judge of its actions, and all that the Legislature of oar neighbor has to do is to quietly proceed to 11 the vacanoy. So much lor the first part cf the letter. t "A man," says this modern Solon, "with an empty pocket, can defy the world, the flesh, and Jthe devil." This is curious. Such a statement reminds me of a little story we heard attributed to tho agent of the Camden and Amboy. A man applied for the position of a conductor. He was refused because he did not possess a watch. The next applied with the article and received the coveted post The agent shrewdly explained his : "If a man has a watch and all the paraphernalia oi a gentleman, then he will be satisfled with his salary; but if he lacks these ornaments, then the Company will be robbed in order that he may secure them." Go to the agent, Mr. Scovel; consider his ways and be wise ! A man with an empty pocket is the one who desires to have it filled. Tut money in thy purse" is a motto for hungry legislators. W would rather trust a rich man than a poor one in the possession of political trust. It is evident that Mr. Scovel has Inverted the order of his premises. But enough of this foolish saw invented by the Senator from Camden. "I require that the caucus should ; name the man before I agreed to go Into joint Con vention." A Dajuel come to Judgment. This dictator, this arbitrator of the fate of the Union party, is to sit quietly in his chair, to which he was elevated by his colleagues, and wait until the choice is made and sub mitted to him for ratification. Suppose he sees fit to veto their nomination, they are to go back and eelect another, and bo on until tbey choose one of the four men named by him. And who constituted him the Judge, the ruler, the king of the Union caucus ? This man was sent as a Senator one of a dozen. As a constituent part of the caucus he has his due share of power, and it M 9ftlj tbQ necessities, tug ttccldeatal arid un fortunate difficulties to which th party is subjected, that has enablad him to dare to ask such regal privileges. ' ' ' . ' ' . "I am right within the doors of my con science, and who dares to say that I will not to Into Joint convention for Felix, Van dyke, or Gbeoobt?" That is not the question. It Is your business to go for any one whom the caucus may select, and if the choice fall on any of the gentleman named, well and good if not, whoever may be the candidate. That is all we have to say on that point. If Mr. Scovel made any limitation be behaved with unwarranted Insolence, and deserves the worst epithets that even those who bunt mountain ( ?) partridges could heap upon him. By-the-by, who docs "hunt par tridges in the mountains ?" Long residence in. Jersey has made Mr. Scovel form vague ideas of mountains. Probably b refers to the mountains of his native State, for any ot greater altitude, strange to say, do not abound In that particu lar bill. The Senatoi's knowledge of political truth and hunting are about equal. The letter fails utterly to set Mr. Scovel right in the eyes of honest men. But now to something else. Did not Mr. James M. Scovel produce this morning, cn the boat in ichich he crossed the Delaware river, a letter direct from Andrew Johnson, signed by the President, in which he (the President) promised tf givl Scovel any position under the Government, provided he could secure the election of a conservative from Jersey, or prevent the choice of . a radical t Did not Scovel show the letter to a gentleman from Atlantic City ? Does not this form an explanation of the strange conduct, or the "eccentric behavior," of that honorable gentleman? We say em phatically that it does. That such a letter was exhibited, and that the solution of Mr. Scovel's conduct, appears probable in this light. We can prove what we assert. But we must now leave the gentleman to his con science and his constituents. The unanimity with which the Republican press ol both New Jersey and our own city have condemned his conduct must have shown by this time to him that his hopes of success in bis ambitious scheme are. ill-founded. Having broken his most solemn pledges to gratify his pr3onal vanity, who will trust hereafter a perjured, man? Having by bis conduct, at ones infamous and dastardly, sought to compel his own election, what party will hereafter receive this for swearerof promises Into its ranks? .When the day comes that the Republican party is willing to send as Senator such a man as James M. Scovel, may that day be the signal for its destruction. Within three days he has forfeited the respect of every honest man. He has turned his popularity into con tumely; he has excited a storm of indignation which will sweep befoie it this juvenile com pound of treachery and vanity. lie has per formed an action within the last three days which has placed him almost beyond the pale ot reconciliation. On Monday will be the crisis of his fate. If he retracts, if he apologizes, and gives an explanation1, the party may re ceive it as an excuse. If he changes his vote and casts it in favor of going into joint con vention, he may regain a place in the political ranks. If he does not, then good-night to Scovel. The scorn and contempt ofj every honorable man will follow him into the walks of private life, from which he will never more emerge. Of all foul political beings, may we be protected from contact with a renegade I Trus is a personal In vitation to the nodor to ex amine our new stvle-i ol JPK1NG CLOTHING.
