The best in formed politicians have regarded General Siuiiui Cameron as the commanding Benins of tlie situat mi. inasmuch as General Grant has al VI0BpaMheed M hi.-* counsel. General Cameron has b.vn lure forsivcial day* and lias regarded the triumph of his MM at Washington with supremo satisfaction; and while ho has not taken pains to appear in public with General Grant, be IiM been i-i MMMtM with him. His son's wi.>. moreover, has been Mrs. Gram's com pani-n at nil the receptions and puldic exhibitions. It cannot tie donated that the inllu MM of this dominant family in l'< nn>\! vania polities is exerted strongly and dn-idcdly in favor of the rcnomiuatioii of Gciie.al Grant. General Cameron does not ntteu.pt to eoneeal the faet, and Ins son is quoted to-day us saying that i'cniisyl v.i nit wants (iraut ami will have him. The vet.01 i left bis hotel this morniiiK apparently well satisfied with the political -t nation. After i lie Cat MI?M have eo;ue the Administra? tion.

IVsident Hayes biinself will be beu> during the e<mini; week, having accepted Mr. OMiMra hospitality in oider to meet the city's diutingiiished guest. At ti e same time new groups of p diiiemns are forming in the eoridors of the lmt< K, there being a fresh artival for every depar tiiic. MM msSATlSFAClION'. While there is a buzz of third term talk at the Union league and in the hotels.it is not to be as? sumed that the current is running in one direction. AB experienced politician, who knows Pennsylva? nia politics if anybody does remarked to me t<? day that there was a large and iullueutial ho ly of Kepubltcaus in the ntv and the ."state who regarded with dismay the political tendencieR of the recep? tion of General Grant. They want as a leader, lie added, either Mr. blame or Mr. Slier man, and they regret that the friends ol those rivals did not combine to defeat Senator Cameron in tho National Committee, t-o long as (ieneral Grant is the guest of the city, and the programme of w hat was intended to be a ?tiictly non-partisun demonstration is being carried out in detail'this class ut republicans shrug their abouldcrs and remain silent. TDK CANAL ENTERPRISE The canal episode is still a disputed question. Ad? miral Aminen and Seftor Franco, the Nicaragua)! Minister to Italy, contend that they have accom? plished all that they sought to do in Philadelphia, and (hat General Graut is co-operating with them, and has virtually agreed to accept the presidency of the canal company. 1 asked MtMat Franco, to-day. whether the Admiral and he had made any progress within twenty-four hours. He replied that the Ad? miral had called ii|M>n the General to-day and gone over the ground again, and that them was no trouble about it. 1 Inquired if tin (ieneral had committed himself iu writing or by word of mouth ho unquestionably that they could u e his name with capitalists as the president of the company. This ho admitted tho (ieneral had not done. "Hut how could heT" he asked. "There is no company organized. We cannot elicet him pres? ident until we organize, and we cannot organize nntil we have conferred win capitalists here, and iu Ni?-\ork." I then asked him if they could raise the money needed for tho enterprise without having a positive assurance that the (ieneral would be the president of the organization. He admitted that General Grant's name was essential to the success of tue project. "He is just the man we want." he ?aid. "He is known abroad, where we must get a good share of the capital; he has the engineering ?kill mid character that ore required; and, moreover, ho is a representative citizen and can interest Americans in the work." Ho theu explained that lie found that Americans were back? ward about engaging in an undertaking involving J'lOO.OOO.OOO. and that while ho had received en? couragement in New-York and eisen here, there wer?' a great manv conflicting inteinsts, HO that they n quired the prestige of (ieneral Grant's name. A WLEMMA AltlsINU. fjy a singular coincidence both Admiral Aminen ami the personal friend* of General Grant have fol? lowed the same cue today. They are arguing that the Nicaragua Canal scheme and the third t**rn? ?re not conflicting nitci vr.ts. ti.-ucral Cruut, they ?ttinii. cuii accept the presidency of the company and resign if >\ believer he likes. Even if hi* re nom? ination be regarded as a foregone conclusion, he will Law. they say, a year or more to devote to this in? ternational work; and even it tie lie elected the two offices may not prove incompatible. 1 asked in-fior Franco what was his view ot the matter, and while he averted that political consid? erations did not concern him, he admitted that (ien? eral Urant could not serve tho company and the country also. " How can you use the General's name and induco capitalists to take stock, unless jou have uuequivoeal assurances Iroin him that he will become and remain the president of the com panvP To this question Sefior Frutico returned ?nswer that ii a company were, formed the condi? tions under which the office would be tendered to and accepted by (ieiicra! Grant would require him to devote his time acd eei vioea to the canal for a period of at least ten tears. The truth is that the projMMfl of the Intero ceanic Canal cannot make headway without (ien? eral Grant. He knows it aud they know it. Ho told them that he favors this route, aud assured them that he would be willing to accept the presi? dency if they could assure MM that the capital Would be forthcoming. But iu order to raise the ?mney they must have the unqualified use of his name as the presiding gen us of the enterprise. There ia no difficulty about aecuring the coaoes ?iou?;but while Genetal Grant's relations to the eiiWpriwt are as ambiguous as they now are noth? ing can bo done. HjiIi Admiral Amman and his <olU*a?-iie from Nicaragua profess to Ik- satisfied with the results of their iidsxioii to this city, and iusiattuat General Grant has gone as fur as be could iu committiug himself to their enterprise. But it is luauifcst that they ha\e uot secured an uncondi? tional acceptance of their terms. "Gopot money In your pur-..''he virtually tells them, - and I'll think of it." lint he must think of it first, and lend tueai his name, or they will find it huid to get the money. Meanwhile there is time fur him to look about aud allow bis trieuds to count the chance* of a third term. A ( oNl'ITioNaL TllfKD ill M. Now that I have x< tnrued to the subject of the third term, a eugaestion made by one of the most prominent Republicans now Iu the cjty is worth re? peating. He favors a third term, hut inaisls that In his letter of acceptance General (iraut must ex Mecsly decline a fourth term. The difficulty of making tli*? nomination conditional upon the letter of acceptance in almost aa insurmountable ns that of guaranteeing the capital without having the means of securing it. This lias heen a very disagreeable day outside, but the reception programme hui been carried out with animation and enthusiasm The public recep? tion at the Commercial Kxchange was v< ry cordial and hearty. The hall was handsomely decorated with bunting and flowers, and the attendance of merchants ? ?< very large. The iMfM of welcome was delivered liy President Baily at 11 o'clock. Mi General Grant's reply was received with many tokens of favor, It was quite long, and was more sic festive t!ian his impromptu addresses usually are: M i hnnoi am> ootumu or m Oawnout ucnAHOi : Y..?ir pvNtdwi hi Um wd. owing nditicss he U.tf )u'i drdwrci uoo* me a iciest deal more liouor thai' I feel to lie my ?ton t, hut It 1? only la koafttu with Ti.?- i .-i ?it It.a tli.it I h Hf itreiveil .it I tie haiitls of I'll;! adt-Iphia n*ot ab clash's, the nmnnW iImm, solders, i x-soldlcis and ftUtaaotUfteftft.

The Assembly Kailroad Commiltee finished at the rooms of the C hamber of Commerce yesterday its inquiry regarding the cost of the elevated rail? roads. The report of the investigation will be sub? mitted to the Legislature about January 15, ami will he supplemental t<> a general one on the great railways of the Htate. dames A. Cowing, treasurer of the New-York Elevated Kailroad since 1H72. gave a history of that road from the time it was begun by the departed Wot Side and Yonkers Kailroad Company, in 1870, till the present. In December, 1*77. he said, stock to the amount of !f-.01id,300 was issued; the sub? scribers paying par for their stock and Iii per cent on bonds to the amount of .*1,71H),00<>, wirh an agreement that they should pay the remainder when it was demanded. The demand had never been ?ad?. In May, 1878, stock to the amount of $1.0?:t,375 was issued, and a month later 9675*000 of stock. Since then the company had issued > 1 ."i'Mt.OOO in stock and $1,000*000 in bonds. The bond liabilit y of the company was now 06.B00.000. and the stock liability ,*t!..*oo,ii()(i. The structure of the double track to Harlem had cost 9400,000 a mile. I his portion of the road had been built ge> toic Iba company leased i's lines to the Manhattan Kail-Miy Company. Altogether the New-Yori. !.!? - vatcd Kailroad Company had built thirly-live miles Of tingle track. Tin' distance covered amounted to between sixteen and seventeen Billet. Most of this was built DT contract. Ponds had been sold at I dis? count : the loMOn them amounted to tboOSSndl of dollars.

Granite Hall, where the meeting was held, was not largo enough to hold all who wished to gain admittance. TtM meeting was called to order by Joseph A. Ho? rnau, who made a speech expressive of the senti? ments thai demanded the meeting. Ex-Governor CoBOdf was thru chosen roairuiaii. Several laaaflhM Wi re made, and resolutions were adopted condemna? tory ot tho action of the Governor and Council. I !:?? enthusiasm was intense. In response to loud calls for Senator Maine, that gent 1.-man look tho platform, and said : It is W"ll, Mr. I'll.in man. iu a meeting of tills kind, to understand with pracMloa the grievance, of which the (toi ;ilahi.

Oa the 8ih ilay of September last the voters of Maine, In pursuance of their organic Inw, proceeded to elect a liovcrnor aid Senators and Representatives lu the Leg? islature.

A HUI'DLL KM fRETENOB. strtA?To make some sort of aoverlng for tbe atrocious fruiii they bsvs committed, a crest effort hat been tna'.e to prove that tho Republicans carried the etoftton by bribery and corruption. This Is a factious aud lateal nietsnee got up to cover a case. Why ! don't they Indict somebody i They tried It In Pepfembcr hefere a Grand Jury, two-thirds of whose members ?? n Findoutst*. and they eame very near ludlctlng Democrat* Instead of Republicans. They have rot up a large numher of affi? davits from men of a certain clmracter, telling hew they had- been bought fur $1 or f'J, or aoiue trifling ?um. Muny of these affidavits hsvc been recall, d by parties who made counter-statement* declaring they bad made the flint affidavit when drunk on liquor which tbe Dem? ocratic agent r.ir :? .!. If a man will tell hi* vote for a ddtar. or any other sum. he la hardly tho wliueea to appear at the puM V prosecutor of a great parry. Tue whole MM to sustain the bribery charge has been attended with di? naeeful conduct by the men who Marled It and who ban' systematically bribed their witnesses to eoninilt perjury. These Democratic, and Orconback agent* bare really 'been guilty tbcm?e!vcs of bribery, of subornation of p-i(ury. aud of getiltig nieu drunk enough to lw ; a: ? Meipentfl in hofh crimes. S*rt*th?Home of the Democrats who chuckle in i-rl Tate over this infamy, and do not wish to come out In square approval of It, are in tbe habit of charging It off against taiutslana, where, tbey allege, the Kvpuhlt. aim cheated the Deinnrrats. Well, rertutuly Maine Republi? can* did not cheat Louisiana Democrat*, and even If somebody el?c had dune ?o, Maine Keoublleans ought not to be made a vicarious sacrifice. Hut there was mi cheat In Loul-i m i. | ii.

This was the law, whether wise or unwise Is not for us to determine. Rut It was the law, snd the enforcement of that law defeated Mr. Tilden und elected President Hayes. Rut wbeio on curth I? anal? ogy to sustain a fraud lu Mslue, unless you consider it good morals to steal my purse because you think an 'acquaintance of mine robbed your friend In Louisiana. Eighth?And now ue are asked, wiih the laarislN of tbe highwayman making off with ?tolen properly. What are we gcilng to do about It I We i.re pursued with the taunt that we cannot help ourselves, and lire boldly fold that tbe ?amc tribunal thut lias " done " tho country thl* yesr will be In n position next year to re? peat the game?and such, I have no doubt, Is the de' i? erate Intention. Sucres? always Inspire* courage, and If the people of Maine meekly submit now they will be called on for a still greater display of meekness iicre a'ter.

RFROLt'TIONS, Other speeches, indicative of the strong feeling that exists against the action of the Governor and Council, were made, after which a Ictier from ex-Goveruor Alison P. Morrill waa read.
