?UK judge by the candidates, una they bold that Mr.
rtlden'e twvi are more docided tbau tboee of Uor
smor Haves. The nomination of Mr. Hendricks m
generally acknowledged to very greatly strengthen the
iemocratio ticket and give Uiat aide a chance 01 carry
lag Indiana.
It cauuot be aald that Mr. Tilden'* nomination haa
?TOi.Oi groat enthusiasm. Many democrat* were m
sliund to make the Ught lor Wei-tern Stales, aud those
oow say ttiat 'the ticket substantially surreuders the
ITest aud stakes the issue oa New York, which had long
bocu regarded oy politicians as a very uncertain State.
"To loae it now would be latitl to us," said a
Southern dem<?rat. "and it was hardly wiao to set so
much upon a single -late; but, H is, alter all, a strong
ticket, and fur my part, if we can elect Mr. Tilden, 1
would rather have him li.an any other man."
One thing gives general aatislactlon to the re >1 dem
ocrats. "Tilden is a democrat Ilo uevcr was 'iiiytbiag
else. He was raised In th.il camp, ami 11 we can wiu
with hla wo shall have a democratic party on democratic
principles once more. Our party has been cursed oy
the ruio ol old whigs. Now there is a chance oi getting
away iron thero."
So spoke a genuito democrat to-day. In this aspect
the nomination ol Mr. Tit<>en gives real s;>t<siuctlon to
that Urge number ol men who would have accepted
Jaage Davis or General Hancock. II either ol these had
been nominated, with a sort of despair at not, alter all,
being allowed to make the fight under their own ban.
ner. These now feel and say that even il they are
beaten tbey will have a real democratic party and not
a mixture.
It is a Uttlo carious that among Southern republi
cans the tan* thins Is said, bui with a d ff. rem view.
Theae men are in the main whigs, and tbey know tho
strength of the old whig leellng and tradition* in the
Booth. They are glad that the St. Louis Convention
nominated an oat and out democrat, for they believe that
in such Stales as Virginia, North Carolina, Louisiana
and, perhaps, Arkansas, it will now be easier than be
fore to draw away the whig vote Irom tne democratic
ranks, and to divide the white vote of those aud olhor
States. This matter is not yet openly discussed, but it Is
tfe*suh)<JCtof a good deal 01 private coaversatioo, and II
tha republican leaders know how to take advautagH of
tha old whig prejudice in the Southern States against
the name, principles and traditiona or the democratic
party, they mar bo able to effect a split down there,
abieh, even if it did not materially help iheru in this
election, would be of great service to tho eouulry
Colonel Mosby U ui.dcrstood to say that in Virginia
(he old whigs can be brought into the support of Hayes
and Wheeler, and ho means himsoll to stump ihe
Stale for that ticket. North Caro.inu Is awhigSiato,
and it is already said here that it will be carried by the
whigs Tor Hayes. In l/Oulslana, Warmouth, it Is as
lorted will be able, If he is nominated, tooarry at least
10.000 white voters to the republican side. At the last
election less tbau 5,000 votod that ticket. It would be
!in odd, but also a happy c>rcuinstance, If the nomina
tions now made, Tilden a very decided democrat, and
Hayes Just as decided a whig, should result in a re
irrangemcnt of parties upon the old and true basis,
the one struggling for non-lutcrfereuoe by the govern
ment, the other holding, as whigs, to internal Improvo
3i tits and a g nerally parental system.

than thev have been. In such a rolmsion, II it ,

Ml Louisiana, which desires protection tor her sugar
srop, and the States which domand large appropriations
from the general government lor their levees. At the
Cincinnati Convention it warf commonly said by dele
gates and others irom the Lower Mississippi Stales,
"We must nomtnate a man we can elect, because
the democrats, if they get in, will never
give us any lovee appropriations."
A law words spokt-n by Governor Hayes at the
Itheus Univer.-l'y Commencement, the other day, are
pleasantly appreciated here, and especially by Southern
democrats. He urged that the canvass should be car
ried on in a kind and candid spirit and without bluer

bead of tho party, lead to the hope that there will be

"He had gool helpers at St. Louis, as John Kelly

abrawd of the old man to quarrel with Tamir.any as he

The representative of tbe Hkkald callcd upon Gov
ernor Seymour to-day at his rusideuco in the country
toa-klus views on Uie St. Louis nominations. Mr.
Seymour wan lound (uttering Iroiu a low lover which
baj conllued him iohi<> place lor the last ten day a. His
physicians prescribe rest and object to his rending or
writing or any physical exertion. In answer to in
quiries about tho action of the -St. Louis Convention
he said he knew less than most men, for during its
sessions and lor some days beioro he bad been cut off
from intercourse with others uu I the usuul sources or
intelligence. Of coarse lie knew less about other
Stales than those who had met their de.egates at
Si. Louis. A? regard* tbe State of New York, irom his
futiiil arny with its poil.leal attairs, be could repeat
w.mt be bad said at all times that it is
and ready to support tho ucuuus oi tho flt. Louli Con
?ventiou; that it wouiu give its electoral vote to any
one presented by that houy. He said that previous to
eucb oi tbo two late Conventions the Iriends ol cundi
datas in their exoiiemenl liad mauo claims lor their
favorit"s or had raised olijucilous to those to whom they
were oppos'd w hich were somewhat exuberated. It
was uuiust to all ol the eminent men umiej at Su
Louis or tlie office ol President to say that certain in
dividual^ only could carry the State oi New York, as
that rai.-ed an umouuded dnuot a- to the ability ul any
democrat to coaimand its vote. A* to tbe excitements
which now exist it must be homo iu mind thut tney
die away a- all the State and local candidutrs are
brvugut into the tield. lu this State, w.th its 6,000.000
ol people and its great cities,
does not cxcitu aK much murest witu we mass ol the

county, city and town nominations wilt, alter a little
time, ab-orb tbe reeltugs wilh regard to tbo Prostdeu

Mr. 8eymour concluded by adding, emphatically:?
"You nmy bay 1 ili uk we are going to carry the
State of New York, because it is naturally a demo

Mr. Seymour says that by and by. wben ho has re

The nominitlon ol Hendricks lor second place on the
St. Louiii ticket had done much to rcmova the had
feeling that existed last night among tho democrats
here, and it Is now likely that the ticket will receive
about the usual vote, unless, perhaps, in some of the
mining districts, where the ultra Inflation Idea pre
vails. While the republican* concede that tho ticket
has been somewhat strengthened hy the addition of
Hendricks. ye> tha Hepnblican State Committee to*

Comptroller Groen, la conversation with a repre
tentative of the Hkrald last night expressed his un
alloyed sitl?lnotion with tho St. Louis nominations.
Governor Tililen he had known long and well and ha
believed bun to bo a thoroughly honest nnd capable
man. "Mr. Tlken," said he, "has had a long and ollk
clent training In publlo afT.iirii. From his youth he
has been a studont or financial and politico economic
questions, and I believe ho stands to-day on* of the
loremoKt statesmen of the lima. No one I think will
question his litucss lor tho position of Chief Magistrate,
anil thoro is not ino slightest doubt tn my mind thut
?i?- will he triumphantly elected to it. If he were to be
del>'atod it would be a blow struck nt r form In our
politics No stronger m?u could have been placed on
the ticket Irom Maine to Callfocnia."
[it rop'y to a question us to whether Mr. Tilden's
tieint' a bachelor'would alloct his ntianceii,while wouien
cannot vote, the Comptroller laughed and replied. "1
don't leol at liberty to nuswer that, cor am I compo- I
toni to do so, being In the snrao bo.it tnyseli. Perhaps
It will scare lor him the support or tn.iny eligible sin
gle Inoies wbo would in ease ol his ole tion have a
chance to marry a President of the United Stales."
said there was no occasion for lengthened remarks
concerning tho nomination ol Samuel J. Tilden for tho
l'rosidencv. lor it was enough to say. positively, tnat
he was unfitted for the position, anJ that lor far mora
than one exceedingly definite reason.
Mr. James O'Brien said:?"I think there Is so
choice could be made which would more strongly ap>
peal to the svmpathies of tne peoplo than that of the
St. Louts Convention."

Malum, Juno 39, 1876.
Hon. W. A. Wheeler returned to Maione thia mom?
ing. He was welcomed at tho depot by cheers of ban*
dreds of his toinsmen, by musio and firing oleannon.
A procession was lormed, headed by a band, and fee
was escorted to his home.
He spoke briefly, under great excitement, with M
much of pathos as to claim the attention of tho vaal
crowd present, and to bring tears to many eyes.
Ho said lite honor of tho nomination belonged not to
bim, but to tho people ol Maione. Ho was eftosen
Town Clerk by them white yet ta bis mtuoriijr, and
when the emolument* of tho place, thirty dollars a
year, were of more value to him than tho thousands
tie has possessed.
He bun t ela.ned the confidence of tho people steadily
since, and has been the recipient of r-Deateit honor*
from them. He owes to their ateadUst adherence,
their warm support and tholr efforts what
ever ol success he has aobicvad. Personally
he would have preferred to remain where he Ie, lor
what is the honor to him, standing in tho thtttow of
lilt desolate home t I'o the young meu, so w?ny of
whom were present before him that be had the right
to spook to them, be would say he knew

storm* and snow* ol winter to his tirst district school
in an adjoining town, in the log house* of
the neighborhood, through the shrunken roofs
ol the hum''ie fsrmers' houses. he had
at in-lit, literally been a star gazer:
but in bis wildest dreams and highest building of castles
in the oir, so complete a eSSeese in life, so great an
achievement hud never occurred to bim. Thla result
Shows that in this beneficent country every man of
character wne the equal of every ether msn. Ho ehould
inane no political speech that morning; the addrem
w?s hut a family talk, but whatever may be tho result
in November it should bo accepted as htueaN good
and loyal citizens. Political feeling would aeeert itself
delta* tho campaign, out lie ho|>?>i the personal rela
tion* existing between them would remain nnobaaged,
as his .'roatc.-l desire was to retain ibe eateem and re.
spe. i of Ijtf. immediate fr enda and neighbors.
Mr. Whewler retired amid hearty applause. Re wag
deeply a itemed as be referred to the desolation which
had come noon hi* home and in the sympathy shewn
l?y the audience might he reed the ostiout and love in
which bo was held.
