Nomination of Mr. Cattell-How it Is Received-The People Incensed Against Scovel His Con , tinued Harlequin ade, Etc. Etc. Special Correspondence of The Evening Telegraph. Trenton, N. J., April 3, 18G6. Harlequin Scorers Erratic Conduct. Tbe singularly ill-timed and inappropriate speech of President Scovel, in the New Jersey 8enate yesterday morning, is the subject of uni versal remark here. A simple statement of his views and a moderate explanation of the posi tion which lie occupies would not have been out of place, but a savape onslaught upon the per sonal character of Mr. Cattell was so mal apropos that eyen the Democracy are slow to justify it. llr. Scovel, in a highly dramatic and sophotnori cal style, thanked God that his family had never proRpertd during the continuance ot a civil war, nor bad he ever owed his wealth and position to the influence of a Corn Exchange. The charge generally made against Mr. Scovel is that he owes his position as State Senator mainly to the influence, and perhaps to the means, of the very man that he is not only opposing, but actually maligning. Ills oppo nents are bound into an organized opposition to him, which is strengthened by a belief tbat his present position is one of base ingratitude. It is not within the range of possibility that tb Republicans can come over to the support of any one suggested by Scovel. The general re mark is that Scovel's man must be as bud as Scovel himself, aud liis suggesting a name is, in tbe present temper of the Seuate, equivalent to his defeat. Doubtless any of the men he mentions would be satisfactory to the party if Scovel would withdraw his patronage and support; but with that dead weight attached, they never can keep their heads above water. An intimation that any individual is satisfactory to him is his poli tical death-warrant. It is perfectly manifest that the Democracy, aided by Scovel, who is professedly a rampant radical, only hope to cause delay. They have no actual power to act, but they are so situated that they can keep others from doing anything. The sharp praciice of yesterday afternoon, when the Senate ad journed for want of a quorum before the clock had struck three, is proof of their intention to make time by fair means or by foul. Mr. Scovel, in answer to an objection tbat it was not quite three P. M., stated that it was after three by It is watch, a phenomenon that can easily bo accounted for on philosophical principles. It is scarcely possible to conceive the feeling in regard to Scovel's course throughout the State. Great numbers of the prominent Repub licans are here in tonslant consultation, and their verdict is unanimous in regard to the course of'the President of the Senate, The fol lowing series of resolutions, which were freely distributed in the Senate Chamber yesterday morning, will Indicate the feeling in other parts of the State:- At a regular meeting of the "Old North Coun cil, Newark, N. J., held on the evening of March 30, 18C6, the following resolutions were unani mously adopted: Resolved, 1. That we view with deep regret the action of James .VI. Scovel in attempting to control the Legislature iu relation to the choice of United (states Senator by refusing to fro into a joint meet ing unless some person be nominated agreeable to him. Uttolved, 2 That by the course the Senator is pursuing ho torloits the osteem and oonudenee he may have won by his servioes in tho Kepuohcan Union rants, and if he persists thoreiu, be should bo luaiguanuy exponea irotn tne party. Itmolvid.S. That rattier than submit to his dicta tion the Locislature would bo justified in adjourning without making an appointment, and thereby re buking bis iusuHorable arroganao. Ht Halved, 4. i'uat tho loreoing resolutions be printed, and that a copy be forthwith dolivored to eaoh Union member ot the Legislature, and to James M. covel. J. W. Force, Presldont. ' William McBeth, Vioe-President. 4iEon.UK W. Tompkins, Secretary. From present appearances it is not likely that a vote for Senator will he reached for several days. Both parties are obstinate, and are byno means disposed to compromise or in any way back out from their present position. Every 6pecies of political trickery is being resorted to; and as both parties consider the result of the utmost importance, we may feel assured that the end is not yet NEW JERSEY POLITICS. Tbe Dead-Lock Still Malntalned-Tho KeaoIatlOH to get Into Joint Meeting: Again Defeated Senator Seovel's) Speech Before the Senate Proceedings of tbe Kepnbllean Caucus I.at Night Mr. Cattell Nominated for United States Senator. Trenton, April 8. In the Senate, after the routine business was disposed of, s uioliou was made to go Into joint session lorthe purpose ol electing a Sena tor. Mr. Beovel lelt the President's chair, aud atter the reading of the resolutions, was recognized by the Prosident pro torn., aud spoke as follows ; . SENATOR SOOVBL'B BFKKCU. ' Tho plausible Jesuit who prosidos oyer tbe State Gazette has decorated me again with bis oensure. He is assisted bv the eminent gentleman who, with out my vote, would not now be secretary of the BoTJBtO.' " i Here Is tbe charge to which I make haste to an swer : "Ihe beginning and end of all acufenoss in this unprincipled movement of his (soovol) is contained either In his thirst for powes or money. We oonfoss that It is uncertain which ot these may influence bun. Ihe laot ot his sudden visit to Washington indicates the. latter; but the following front tbe 1'hiiadelpbia Evknimo Tklkobaph points to tbe former t " 'Did not Mr. James M. Scovel produce this morn ing, on the boat In which he crossed the Delaware river, a letter direct irom Andrew Johnson, signed by the Presldont, in which he (the President) pro mised to give Mcoyel any position nndor tbe Govern ment, provided be could secure the eleorion ot a con servative from Jersey, or prevent the cboioe ot a radical t Via not Scovel show the letter to a gentle man from Atlantlo City f " 'Does not this form an explanation or the strange conduct, or the 'eocentrio behavior,' of tbe honor able gentleman f We say emphatically that it does. That such a letter was exhibited, and tbat ilie solu tion ot Mr. Scovel's conduot appears probable In this light, we openly aaaert. We can prove what we announce. Bat we mast now leave the gentleman to his eontclvuve and his constituent,',' By tbe morning's mall I roceivtd the following letter irom which I quote s "Atlaktic City, Batordav, March 81. Hon. J. M. Beovel. Dear Mr: I see In Tint Tklkirapu some person has been good enough to imorm tho editor of something 1 said in the oiry atter I loft you. In defending yon, I said to a man that was coming down on yon pretty sharp, that 1 reckoned you knew what yen was at. It appear from the article in In rcLvoturH that the man I spoke to ent right to the editor and reported not what I to d him. fori did not say you showed me a letter from the Piesido t as staled in tho editorial of Tan Tklkurafh this evening, bat precisely as you told me, anu as above stated. I wa asked by another man that knows I and yon are particular irlends, whether I was your friend yet? I told him you knew better than I did what was tor the best. I say the editor cannot prove bv me what he said in his paper. What I said to that man referred to was aony in dolonding von, but has been construed against jou. I am, dear sir, very rospcottuily, year lnoud, Kobebt B. Leeds." This, Mr. President, settlos that point, and the little Jesuit would better try again. I would be silent under these charges ot corruption and venal ity, of meanness and soltlshnoss, wore tberoeot those to whom my reputation is dear, and who aro dear to me. Well, what has been my record? Was not all right, and did I shrink, in I860, 1861. 1662, or 18047 Was I not ever found, during tbe dark days of the Robolbon, on tbe sldo of my connirv, upholding the honor and dipnily ol her flagf Where, then, were those virtuous opponents, these noli contractors; these mill who, undi r special permit, granted by Sec retary Chae, were coining money on the Corn Exchange and out of contraots. wby no one knew, and tliey did not know themselves whloh side they were on. Now you ask me am I ready to go into joint session. Mr. President, let me but repeut what I have taid again and again. Wlienover tbe party will nume their man a man suitable for the posi tion end acceptable to tbe people of New Jersey 1 wi'l cheerfully go into joint session, but so nolo me Uod 1 will not go in bclore. (Applause and hisses.) Senator : Mr. President, I shall insist that the lobbies bo cleared if tbis interruption is made a second time. Ho Senator deserves to be thus inter rupted. Senator : I think tbe persons in the lobby have behaved veiy well. The matter has occurred but once. Mr. Beovel, resuming I notice that some of the pteple laugh at this. They aro the ones who claim tbat 1 am dictating to my peers. Wby, 1 do not wish to dictate. But I would ask, are we so poor in great men, in wealth, in territory, that we can find but one tit to go to the United Status Senate? Are we, am I, as a Senator of this state, to oi dictated to by a man who happens to have made money out of contracts, while I have mado none? I don't want tbe position. I would ten thou sand times rather see Mr. Fie!d or Mr. tiro gory there than to go myself, and the party has only to indicate tho name of some of these true and honest men to prove the sincerity of my declaration, I think I occupy a moral position here, aud not the rook of Uibraltar Is more strong than I. My family, thank God, never flourished during a time of civil war, if otbtrs did; but, thank Uod, 1 hud the opportunity in tho Lower House and in this honorable body to prove by my vote and my words on what side was ever to be found the ropresont itive from Camden county. I have bent to tbe party yoke In years gone by, I have done it here, and during this session, but I will not do it now. 11 my conduct bore drives me into political retire ment 1 shall wolcome therest and ihe peace of my home. I have tried, Sir, for years to proserve tbat chastity ot honor which feels a stain like a wound ; and If now, Sir, I should yield to the bribes of my friends, as much despised as the bribes of an enemy , I woold trample on my tell respect, and more than tills, I would stain tho honor of itepublicamsm In Aew Jersey ar.d belore the world. If I go down in this fight, it will be aa thetCumbertand went down, with honor untarnished. Mr. Scovel then took his seat at the President's desk, and the vote was taken and lost by a vote of 10 ayes to 9 nays eieven ayes being necessary. The lobbi.s were crowded with spectators eajjer tor the fun, the gallery was thronged with ladies who encour aged the bold orator Or their smiles, and for a few moments after the announcement ot the vote tbe most intense exeltemeut prevailed. Business was then re sumed, and nothii.g further wa done nntil a similar motion was put and lost with the same vote. The Senate adjourned at 11'80, and many of'the workers went to flnlade.pnitt for instructions. Tbe claims ot Mr. Gregory are actively urged, and his iriends are sanguine of getting Cat ell out of the way. This, in my mind, helps the matter not a bit, for it is evident that Mr. Scovel is bound to go to the Senate himself, if it is within the range of possi bility. There are many hore who atfbct to neer at him and ridioulo his strength; but it eoms undeniable to me that be has the power to keep his opponent out, and it Is by no moans certain that be wont be able to put himself in. As the evening wears on new developments may be expocted, aud if any ot them are of the least im portance I will sond them. At presont, men aud measures are exactly whore they were last night, aud tbe death of Senator Wright will only precipi tate matters. As stated before, his resignation is ready at any moment, so it will make but little dll tetence in the caucus in what form tne vacancy comes, 'I bknton, N. J., Tuesday, April 8, 8 15 o'o'ock P. M. ihe Senate, in pursuance of adjournment, assembled at three o'clock, but on motion ot Mr. ftobin., Democrat, adjourned till to-morrow morn ing at nine and a half o'clock. The object or this adjournment was to hoad off a resolution which the Baoicals propnoed to offer, by which a majority of a quorum, instead ot a majority of a full House, would be sufficient to concur iu the resolution of the Assem bly to hold a Joint so.-sion. Senator. Kennedy and Little were still ab-eni then absence actually giving the Kauicals a majority of the quorum present. 'To morrow, if these Senators snomd then be absent, tho resolution, it is expeolod, will be presented to the House. Tbemton, Tuesday, April 8, 9 P. M Tho only event that ha transpired to night of any importance in regard to the Senatorsbip is the result of a oauous held by tbe Republicans at the capital, thirty-nine Assemblymen and Senator) being prose nt and 6 ab sent. Atter considerable talk and some engineer ing a vote was taken which resulted aa follows: Cattell, 82 votes; John Ten Evck, 6; Dayton, 2. Mr. Cattell was accordingly nominated to bo tbe candi date oi the Republicans, f but result puts a Joint session off for an Indefinite period, porbaps for the term. There are all soits of schemes rumored about, nearly every Senator or ABsemblymnn seeming to havea special plan on the tapii of which be desiros to have nothing said in print, at least tor the present. The resignation of Senator William Wright Is said to have been fixed, and alto that it will bo brought before tbe Legislature to bo either aecopted or not at an early day. ' So soon as this is done an effort will be made to return Stockton to tbe United statei Senate, and to fill the portion occupied by Mr. Wright by electing Mr. Scovel, ueBoluiions approving of the Veaoo Proclamation of the Tresideut will be olleied in the Senate to morrow, and in the lower House jV. Y. Timet, Blowing Hot and Cold. From tin State Gazette, Trenton, N, J. Senator Seovol ba put himsull in a most unde sirable situation by his overweening ambition and luipuoenco. Having raised the storm, bo shows bis weaiuesn by hi utier inability to direct lis course, and by bis frantic efforts to make lair weatber lor himself. Somo person have givon him the credit ot originating a profound scheme lor tbe subversion of the Republican party and tbe aggraudizoment of himself. Apart irom tbe phrenological faot tbat persons with narrow heads never originate broad and com prebensive schemes wo think it clear that Mr Scovel's plant were the simplest and plainest .!" (rinable. 1'b.e key to this entire movement is lound in the success ot his perfidy at the opening of the legislative session. He was then allowed tooarry his points, and was made President of the Souate. There was no plan in the thing, nor any brilliant achievement accomplished. Ihe dullest uraiu In tho world could see that any peroou who chose to act in an unprincipled manner could accomplish all Scovel old. We have never heard it intimated tbat Nor cross was a man of brilliant parts, and vet he accom plished Just as much as James M Scovel. the in genuity of the scheme lay in voting for himeJ. A weak-minded person naturally thinks if by a certain means he is able to accomplish one thing, he can by the same means accomplish another.. Bo thought Boovtl. He had not tbe sharpness to ap preoiate the changes of circumstance which had taken place, and henoe thought his old game could be repeated. But perhaps ere this be has learned that sometimes "fools rush iu where angels tear to tread;" and it niiht be added, show their foolish ness thereby. , , .. Ibe beginning and end of all acuteneesin this un principled move meat of bis. la contained either in bis thirst for power or money. We eoules. that it la uncertain which of these ay influeucs him. Tbe fact ol his tinMcn vitt to Washington indicate the latter; but the following from The Pbii.adki.fhja tVkXMo Tklkorapb points to the former i ' Did not Mr James M. Scovel produce this morning, on the boat in which he crossed the Deia ware r,ver, a ener direct from Andrew Johnson, signed by the Presldont, In which he (the President) promised to giv. Scovel any position under tbe Gov ernn.ent, provided be could secure the eleetion of a constrvatve from Jersey, er trevent the choice ol a radical f Did not Scovel show the letter to a gentcman from At antte City T "Dees not this form an explanation of tbe stranre conduct, or the 'oeoentrlo benavlor,'ol the bonora' le gentleman? We say emphatically tbat It does That such a letter was exhibited, and that the solution of Mr. Scovel's conduct, appears probable in tuis light, we openly arsort. We can prove what we announce But we must now leave the gentleman to his eon science and his constituents." But to am ther proof. The utter weakness and wretched imbecility ot this pretender is further shown by the araxy replies mado te oar first stric tures, in a letter published in Thb Philadelphia Tkleouapb and Bulletin. His first deien.e Is that he was ''thirty-two years of ago on the 16th of Janaary last." What an astounding announce ment! Ye gods! we pale with affright! This re doubtable champion of Democracy and Republican ism this traducer and suppliant tool ot President Jobnsou this anti-Pro Monopolist was thirty two years ot age o the tixternth ol January last Why not the 16th or 17th f Really tbe 16ta ot January, and especially of last January, should be a national holiday, aud the redoubtable James tbe nrotor for the occasion for all New Jersey I "A plurality rule was off-red by a 'Republican in tbe joint meeting of tbe New Jersey Legislature which elected John Stockton senator." Iieallv, we were not aware before tbat Danlol lloisman was a Republican. Pirbaps the Hon. James means, that as good a Republican as ho "otlorod," eto. He.ts not going "to descend to notice tbe sinister allusions ot the Oazttte," and yet he splashes through a half colnmn in an effort to do this very thing! His final effort is as follows : "I am right within the doors of my own con science, and who dares to say then I will not go inte joint meeting for Field, Vandyke, or Gregory? Has any opportunity been offored me 7" We think tho doors ot bis conscience are opened and shut pretty oftea. But as to his proposition, wo hope it will not be offered him very soon. Let him go Into caucus and advocate the elaims of his candi date, and then abide the result like an honest man, or else betake himself te more congenial quarters ( bat let bim not seek to dictate to Union men . He also sent on Saturday a telegram to Washing ton, begging tbem not to distrust him, as all would be well in a lew days ! But perhaps the dearest evidence of his peculiar weakness may be seen in the lollowlng : "A meeting ot the Ropublican cit'zens of Camden county, Mow Jersey, was held at tbo Court Uoubo n Camden on Saturday evening. Tbe meeting was largo. Resolutions condemning the eourso of Sona tor Scovel and urging the eiootlon of Hon A. G. Cattell were passed unanimously, fho meeting wis not presided over by, nor were any of the officers politicians. 'Later in the evening Mr. Scovel was serenaded at his residence by Democrats, who were sabse quently entertained by him. Bio speeches were mado, but cht cts were given for President Johnson, Edgar Cowan and ex-Senator btookton." It is reported in another paper (we publtshod the account eUewhere), that Mr. Scovel employed this band-but ot the serenade and its accompaniments there can be no doubt. Mow, what of all this? It is evident, that no person ot well-balanced mind and evon ordinary aouteness would place himself in the situation of Senator Scovel. the petty arts employed to keep up a waning reputa tion, are ignob e. The bombast with which he seeks to floe the papers, indicate an unbalanced mina; and the palpably bogging spirit of his letters gives evidence ot puerility. In a word, the only manly course possible for this gentleman is to reconsidor his course, lay aside his ictatorial spirit, and co-operate with the Union party. Kveu tne men be nominates condemn his coarse. The good and true condemn bim; hence honesty and right are to him the better pelioy and the uioper course. Returning to his daty, there is some chance lor him but a traitor is trusted by none. A Few Words for Sir. Scovel. To the Editor of The Evening Telegraph. The eniire Republican or loyal press has been outspoken in reierence to that flighty, uuser lain, reousant representat ve of our friends over in the Camden district, "Jim Scovel," who begins to find out that, iiko every predecessor of his in the "vault ing ambition" game, he has flourished just long enongh to sharpen the instrument by wbicb moral and political suicide 1b effected, While we sympathise with our frionds, we are remlndod that they were fully advised as to tho known character of the man who csurted their em brace; and they were assured that they would dis cover, when too late, that they had nourishod and warmed into life a viper whose poisoned fangs would prove as fatal as that of the veriest Jersey Copperhead. Alter reading the telegrapbio accounts from Tron ton, as furnished by you yestorday, in respect to tbe death struggles ot the "Spread Eagle," we picked up that faithful mirror of human character Salo mon's edition and was, more than usual, impressed with the multitude of portraitures, so life-like, of tbat treacherousrepresentative( ?), as they appear in his relations to tbe party whom he does not represent. Just look at them : "Confidence in an unfaitbtul man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth and a foot out ot Joint.' "As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honor is not seemly for a fool." "As a dog returneth to his vom(t, so a fool re turneth to his folly." "Seeest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there Is more hope of a fool than of him." - "When he speaketh fair, believe him not; for there are seven abominations in his heart." "Though thou should'st brey a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not bis foolish ness depart irom bim." Iow lot James took at this one, and bo admon ished: "He that being oftcned reproved, hardenoth his neck, shall be suddonly destroyed, and tbat without remedy," That's so.
