Ignorance.?The Chicago Conven tion "explicitly declares" in its platform that tbs wards a failure, and that we must resort to other means thao warlikejones to settle tbe differences between tbe people of tbe United States and <b? friends and adherents of Jeff. Davis. Now it is only natural tbat tbe men of tbe Chicago Convention ehonld have studied very cloeely and very intensely tbo history of that part of the war tbat was carried on and conducted by General McClellan, tbo favorite hero and leadar of the Chicagi patriots. Un questionably tbey, like sensible men, Ulk of tbo things they know moat about, and when tbey speak of tbe war tbey mean General IfcCleltan's pari of it We can, therefore, agree with tbo Ohieago Convention on this point. There is no doubt that the war, as carried on by ihe nominee of tbat convention, waa a moot deoided failure. But tbo Chisago Convention ought lo know tbat MoCleUeu bas km mpereedad, art that then has been another general aiaoe Ms tine who has oonduoted the war dlffbroatly, aad with wore suocses. General MoCUUan, we are aware, haa never heard of General Great?at leaat we are led to Infer that from hie omlaaioa of Grant's name from the namher of the na ! tional beroee whom be pvaiaed ee graoefuUy In bin speech at Orange?bat we had not supposed that the Chicago Convention waa made np en tirely of political Rip Van Wink lee. Gan it be possible that that convoatipn known nothing of that part of the war that is honombie to the national arms. Haa it never heard of General Grant? la that convention alee, like its nomi nee, ignorant of that great man's achievements, and even of his name? The Coming flaaaclel Storm-fa* CieeS la She Wast. Financial storias and mrial storms have pretty mneh the same characteristics. A northeast storm rises in the southwest, and whirls rapidly around, sweeping everything from its path. 80 oar financial storms often begin in the very opposite quarter to that from which they were expeotod. TM financial storm of 1837 commenced et New Orleans, and came northward like n tornado. The financial storm of 1857 first made its appearance at St Louis and the Southwest, and raged over the country like a northeaster. The financial storm of 1864-65-whieh we have long pre dicted as the result of the inflation of the past few years?haa displayed itself at Chica go, and will be coming this way presently with tenfold Airy. Those merchants and speculators who bsve taken our advice and are prepared for it may thank the Hkiui.d and their lucky stars. The reports from Chicago inform us that seve ral banks had failed and others refused (0 pay heavy checks. This caused a panic amongst all classes, and the email produce doalers went under. Flour, wheat, corn, oats, rye and whiskey foil heavily, and everything else in proportion. Then a mob attacked one of the banks, and proposed to bang oue of the direc tors; bat the military were called oat and the director rescued. Ilere are all the indications of a fearful tlnanoial storm, and onr produce merchants an 1 flour speculators and bank di rectors may see what they have to expect. How long will it be before we have a mob and are obliged to oall oat our military? These things are contagious, like the disease which President Lincoln proposed to give to every one who called on bim. A man may as oend a ladder for a very long time; but sooner or later be will get to the top, and then he must either climb down or fall dowa. Our speculators have reached the top of their lad der. We have tried to induce tbem to descend while there was yet time for repentance; but they have persistently refused. Now there is nothing left tor them but a tumble. We must have a fall in gold, a fall in provisions a talk in dry goods, a fall in coal, a fall in clothing, a fall in the butcher's bills, a fall in rents, a fall in board, a (all in every necessity, comfort and luxury of life. There is no help for it, and there need be no useless grumbling about it We must all (all down together, and may Heaven help those who are undermost. We find a most convincing evidence ot the utterly wrong principles upon which business has been conducted during tb:a war in the fact that our victories will ruin our merchants. By some strange legerdemain our commercial and manufacturing interests bsve been placed in a hostile position towards our national interests, j Those who bsve played this triok will now be caught in their own trap. Wbeu any set of men array themselves against the country they must snffer. It is in vain that we have warned our capitalists of this faot. Tbey saw that the triumphs of our gallant -armies injured their business, and that they made money out of our defeats, and yet they bad not sense enough to perceive that a business policy which had such results must be wrong, and should be changed. The trntb is that all onr merchants have turned specula tors. Every business thoroughfare has become a Wall street. There bas been as much specu lation in calico as in stocks, io kid gloves as in mining shares, in coal as in coal oil, in segars as in? railroads, in provisions m in gold. From the brokers to the papermakere, every body has been gambling. Stewart's store bas been like an exchange, with daily bulletins of the rise or fall of prices, and eager crowds around buying for the rise, or selling at whole sale for the fall., At the theatres the actors speculated for a rise tn salaries, and tbe mana gers speculated in tickets, and the audience rushed out between the sets to ask the price of gold, and send messages to their brokers. There here been open boards and cloee boards, and morning boards and afternoon boards, and evening boards and midnight boards, and dran-town boards and np-town boards, and stWn exohanges and produce exohnnges, and provision exchanges and mining exchanges, and petroleum exchanges and dry goods ex dmnges, io order to accommodate the specula tors, who rushed from the one to tbe other in a flurry of exoitemeat. The aatusal result of all this is a terrible finaaotal storm, which Grant's victories are hastening, and for which the ma jority of the orazy speculators are totally nn prepared. When the tempest bursts upon us tbe poli | tlcians will suffer with the speculators, limy, too, hsve arrayed their interests against those of tbe people. Instead of nominating the great men who are aow saring tbe country from de struction, tbey have passed by Grant, ShermaiC Sheridan, Hancock aad Farragnt, spd have allied themselves with military aod political failures. From tbe turn events are taking we should not bo surprised if thqee political speculators caught a fall. This is tbo fall seasan, aod there is no reason why they should escape. Already tbe Cleveland platfocm bas tumbled down, and those who creeled it are ballad beneath Its rains. They cry aloud, as in Fremont's Utter; but tbeir voices are but echoes without bodies. Tbe Chicago platform came down with a great crash, and Pendleton seems to have fallen with It; for nothing hes been heard of him sinoe, and all onr inquiries In regard to hie loiter of acceptance ere unanswered. MoCleltan, more fortanate thao Pendleton, jumped off the plat* form just before It fell, and Is now performing theacrobatio feat of standing upon himself. Whether er not this Is a shaky pi atfarm the future most determine. The Baltimore plat form, Ilka the derkey upon wham It rests, is very unoertala. Lincoln hes only one leg upon It, and the other leg la said to bo supported by Uroeley, Chare. Wade aad Gempaoy, who are piled upon eaeb other for a stepping etoae to the Presidency ?vldeutly, then, Old Abe* foothold is oot wry reliable, sat we asy s*? pect to im him loppls over st uy moment sad oerry the whole shoddy eoaosra along with hia The republicaa party was bora in Chicago, aad the democratic platform was framed in Cbioego; but the latest news from Chicago Is not favor able to either the republicans or the demo crats. Close upon our flaaaeiai storm will come s political storm, and It is singular that they should both originate In the same place. If the luaacial storm be delayed until after the election, wall and good; but If it should occur before the election we would uot he surprised to see both Lincoln aad MoClellan set aside for those men who have saved the aatloa in war, and who can best govern it in peace. Crrr Mfmhhus or Conursss.?The political eanvaaa in this Stats in 1862, which was con ducted by the democracy on a war issue, but in opposition to tha.emancipation abolition policy of the administration, resulted io the election of the following persons to represent this oity in Congress:?Ben end Fernando Wood, J. W. Chsnler, Elijah Ward, James Brooks aad Anson Herricfc. Most of these gentlemen, en taking their seats in Congress, voted in opposition to the measures brought up for the prosecution of the war. The record of u majority showed throughout a sympathy for the rebels. It is true that Ben Wood left a very slim reoord; for he wss seldom there to rote on any question, and was sure to be absent when anything im portant was before Congress affecting the inter ests of this city. As to Fernsudo Wood, it is well known that he never failed to manifest sympathy for the South in all his votes, even if be did have to immediately call on Old Abe or Secretary Chase and prove to Lbetn that his vote would help the republican party; whilst Chanler was never -able to decide him self bow he should vote, and relied upou Wood to tell him, thus becoming a complete toot of Fernando. Brooks was. too busy looking after the dirty linen of the Cabinet to occupy himself with anything one way or the other. Herrlck always lost bis way among the halls and side rooms of the Capitol, and no person could tell where bestood. They were all entirely useless as far as this city was concerned, neither comprehending the position of New York and its identity of interests with every section of the Union nor ks importance as the commer cial and financial centre of the country. The people of this oity are sic . and tired of being represented by such men in the balls of the national legislature. They want no sccesh sympathisers; nor do they want any af the abolition dieunionists; for they are just as great a disgrace. Their doctrines lead to the saiue result, namely, the division of the country and a destruction of the industrial and commer cial interests which feed and support this great metropolis. Tammany Hall now is In a position to relieve us from any such disaster in the future. The people are looking to that organiR-ition Io prevent either of those classes misrepro-u'utiug them again. Tammany being now the rcooguized representative of the democ racy of the city, standing on a war and Union platform, rallying its forces around the naineof Mo'Jiellao?who, every person admits, will carry this city by an unprecede nted majority?it holds the key to the situation, and c m redeem the city if its managers fewlentdy do their duty. They must repudiate in Mo ail connection with such rebel sympathisers as the Woods, Chanler, Cuuther, McKeou and the balance of the secesb crew of the outside organisations. as well aa the disunion aboli tionists on the other side They must throw ovorboard all those men who have proven false in the present delegation, and select men whose character, ability and known Union sentiments will be a guarantee that they will truly and faithfully represent this city, with all its in terests. There is no reason why the members from this oity should not be the leading men and the guiding minds a our national legisla ture. This city has more at stake than any other section of the country, and, with good men in Congress, her voice will be all potent at Washington, as It sbonld be. What are the managers of Tammany doing to eeonre this result? Upon them rests the responsibility. Will they, at the nominating convention to be held this week, take to their embrace the Woods, Chanters nnd Gunthers, or reject them, and show that they appreciate the trusts im posed upon them; or will they take those semi nccussionints to their embrace, to the disgrace of themselves and the city? We wait for a re p4y from the convention. Upon that rests the condition of the support of our citizens of the Tammany Congressional ticket. Surntcwiow 9r Newspapers.?We see that the government has not yet learned the folly of its policy of suppressing newspapers. We learn that a paper called the Evenbtg Post has just been suppressed in Baltimore, by order of Geo. Wallace, for placarding somothing on Us bul letin board. Recently another journal was shut up out West by military authority. Noth ing could be more absurd tuan such a course. It only gives notoriety to obsoure things, and does no possible good to the government. We have some experience in newspapers; but we never heard of the Baltimore Evening Post be fore, and perhaps nobody else evdr heard of the obscure Western paper. This policy origi nated with Mr. Seward, who suppressed some papers and arrested some editors that people knew little or nothing about; and it is only small men, " dressed in a little brief authority," like 8eward and BurnBlde and Wallace, who would adopt suoh small measures. Mr. Lin coln should put a stop to them, if be does not want to damage hia chance of re-eleetion. Just now be has as good a chance as his rival, or any one else, considering the circumstances; but he must not permit his subordinates te do suoh foolish thiogs if be desires to stand well with the public. Is thi How.
