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
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

Speech Before the Senate Proceedings
of tbe Kepnbllean Caucus I.at Night
Mr. Cattell Nominated for United States
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 ; .
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
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
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

M. ihe Senate, in pursuance of adjournment,
assembled at three o'clock, but on motion ot Mr.

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

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

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
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
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.

Special Di spatch to tlte Evening Telegraph.
Trenton, April 4". Speaker Scovel took occa
sion at an early period oi the proceedings of the
Senate this morning to retract the words used
in hi speech yesterday in reference to' the
Secretary of tho Senate, Mr. E. It. Borden, who
was supposed to be the author of tho article re
flecting upon tho President of the Senute in tho
Trenton Stale Gazelle.
Mr. Beovel denied any intention of doing an
injustice to any innocent party. Ho expressed
his regret that he had used the expression re
ferred to. .
Mr. Bobbins, of Middlesex, rose to a question
of privilege, and stated that the charge that Mr.
Scovel. had prepared the resolution requiring
eleven votes to go into joint session was untrue,
he (Mr. Bobbins) being solely responsible for it.
Senator Buckley, ot Passaic, offered a resolu
tion that the Legislature adjourn on Friday
next. Adopted.
Mr. Buckley, of Passaic, introduced a resolu
