Uerleld, of Ohio, had tn aharue : never paid R dollar; received :12V, which, afar the investigation began, he waa aniioua to have oonei.lered aa R loan from Mr. Oakee Amee to blmielf. Well, tha wlckedneai of all of it le that tbaie men betrayed the truet of the people, deceived tuelr Miiitituenu and by eveilon. and laiieboodi oonfeeaed tbe traaeachon w oe dligraclul. From th. New York Tribune, Feb. 10, 1973.1 Mr. Amee eilabliabee very clearly the point that be waa not alone i. thii offenie. 0' r lo bt txpclltil or on'bfry, lAe men uko leer oWbrol Aoeiu oo arifA Aim. Rcador, remember tbo Timet' re- murk : "Mr. Cur field presents a most distressing figure" And tbe Tribune! James A. (iai field, of Ohio, bad ten allures ; nevor paid a dollar," and, "If Ames ia to bo expelled for bribery, tho mon who were bribed should go with him." Congresa did not heed tho re marks. Ames was expelled, and it killed him. Hut Garfield, Kelly & Co, still hold scats in Congress, and tho former bus tho impudenco to ark tbe honest voters of Una country to elect him President. Woll, that won't bap pen. Good Authority. A few thin skin cd peojilo claim that Gcnorul Hancock is not lawyer enough to bo mnUe Pros idont. On this point wa rctor the reader to the opinion of one of tho ablest Senators, who is personally ac quainted with both nominocs. We allude to Senator Katon, of Connecti cut, who said at a Democratic meeting tho other evening: "Gen. Hancock was nominated because bo is like Jef ferson and Madison and Jackson, a Democrat from Ibo crndlo. I tell you here tonight with a good deal of knowlcdgo of the man of a pcrsonol acquaintance with the man that be ia a better constitutional lawyer than tbe nominee of tho Republican party." Thoso, thereforo, who nro looking around for a lawyer for President, should givo this subject some thought. Wo know Garfield it a high-priced law yer, having charged Do Golycr (5,000 for an opinion, but in a common sonso light ho is tho cheapest lawyer over nominated for President, whilo bo is tho proprietor of one nf tho dirtiest record n over offered to the American votor. We Cannot Comply. Thoro seems to bo a universal run for "Hancock at Gettysburg," tho title of an article wo published on tho 17th ot March last. Ono writer says: "George, send mo ten copies of tbe Reitulican duled March 17th." Another, "Send mo fivo copios," and it third, "thrco copies." Wo cannot comply with cither request, our edition being entirely exhausted except our own file. From the in quiry raised about this document we will agreo to re publish it within the next two weeks, so that all may have an opportunity to read il from a stand point after tbe nomination of the Pa triot, Hero and Statesman to whom it refers. Wo do not think that wo can givo our readers any better matorial to peruse on this occasion than to re peat "Hancock ut Gettysburg." Aliunde Joe. Tbo New York Sun in alluding lo tho miserable figure eight, now occupying a soat in tho Supreme Bench by accident, says : "It appoara that Joseph P. Hradlcy, of Electoral Commission notoriety, is still alive, Ilia namo figured in the list of hotel arrivalsyealorday. Wherevor he goes ho carries with him tbo consciousness of his own infamy and Ibo incffacoablo mark that years only wear tbe deopor. Gone. Hon. Joseph it. Chandler, ono of Philadelphia's most oslcomod and worthy citir.ens, died on Saturday lost, aged 88 years. Ho was for many yeara chief editor of tho JVorfA Amcr tci7N. Ho was a grand old noble lio roan. So far as wo know bo leaves no successor. He was "no kin" to the Chandlers of Michigan or New Hamp shire. Ho was a true American Stalcsmnn. A Radical exchango says: "Mr. C. C. Coffin, better known aa 'Carloton,' is writing a lifo of General Garfield. It will bo published by Jamos 11. Karlo of Boston." Wo hope tho author will not overlook tho report of the Poland Committco, and tbe Congressional Record, fuels in Iho lifetime of the aforesaid. Thieves.

HANCOCK. PEltejONALCIIARACTEaiHTirS OFTI1EWIFE OK THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE. Mrs. Huucock, tbo wilo of tbo Gen eral, is a lew years his junior in ago, and aa a woman, is as Imposing in ap pearance as ho is a man. 'fall and well proportioned, with tbo most win some smile, a niuiiiiui' I hut puts you at your ease at once, and a pair ol eyes that animate every line of a handsome face, alio is still a beauty, although her hair, is becoming slrcakcd.wilh gray. Nho was married when tho General waa but a young lieutenant doing duty in tbo fur West It wus entirely a lovo match, and neithor of tbcm have since regrutod It In fact, their home is one of the happiest imaginable. Mrs, Hancock has always beon opposed to her husband becoming a candidate for tho Presidency, and f he now is oven above tho weakness of wishing lo bo tlio mistress of the White Honso. She dreads Iho worry of tho canvass, and if her husband is elected sho thinks Ibo honor which the position brings will bo deurly purchased by the rontin cialion of all domestic lifo for four yeara lo como and of bis position as senior Major General and his chances of soon becoming chief ot the army. While sho prefers her homo exlstonce, however, thoro is no ono better quali fied to play tho hostess on a grand settle than alio. A society belle, oven after her marriugo, sho bas all tho .elf confidence and resources noeded to en tertain tho most varied company Thoro is nothing in Iho range of con. versution about which sh does not know something. Her greatest charm, howovor, is and it is tho General's also the art of making every individ ual atom feel as if ho were tho sole ob ject of her attentions. H. Y. Graphic. Queeu. Gen. Hunoock is in favor of tariff for revenue Gon. Garfield is a momber of tho Eree Trade Leagno. Vet, his party organ the Jotiri,i last woek had tho audacity lo assail our nominee on tbo tariff question after tbia manner: "Hancock is running for President as a Pennsylvania man and in hope of carrying Pennsylvania on a platform of a tariff tor rovenue only.' If be can carry it on that platform, then good bye to protection for ever. Even Dallas, in 1st f, could not carry Pennsylvania excopt by professing (falsely as it turned out) to bo in favor ot tho tariff ot '42." Well, sinco you have sounded tho alarm bell on "pro tection," what would become of our poor Commonwealth if Garfield oould be elected 7 Would not tbo "good bye" be Blill longer. More : Six your, ago when Garfield was the Radical nomi nee for Speaker, thrco Pennsylvania members refused to voto for him bo- causo of bis Eree Trado views. Please toll your readers tbo truth about your own candidato and quit lying about ours. Hkkdio to THE SURFACE. Wo no tice by tho Williamsport Sun that Pe ter Herdic has invented a now style passongcr coach, capablo of seating eight persons and to bo drawn with ono horse. Tho principal points about this coach, giving it siiperionty over any other, is in the fact of its having very largo wheels, thus passing more easily over tbo rouirh pavements and allowing ono horse lo draw about aa much as two with smaller whoels. The axles are in a single piece of cast ing, with a drop nf eighteen inches from tbo spindles, allowing tbe coach to sot nour tho ground. There aro olher points of exoollenco which com mend Ihemsolves at onco. Mr. Hordic has organized a company, with a capi tal of $1,000,000 at Philadelphia, where they intend lo nianufacluro theso coachos on a large scalo and expect to supply ovcry city in the United Slates. A Good Tiiinii Puck's campaign pictures aro good. Last week Gonoral Hancock is represented as standing erect and laiiltlcss, while a scoro or so of Republican editors are hunting through his pockets, trunks, dusks, and drawers, searching for something derogatory lo him. Ono fellow went so fur as to poko his noso into a spit loon, while another one nearly broko his nock peeping up tbo chim ney. Rut it was no go; llioir efforts wero fruitions, and despair Is pictur ed on their faces, while their hair stood eroct liko porcupine quills, Our nominee never engaged in grabs, stocks, big fees, and other disreputable jobs. His life has boon exactly tbe rovcrsoof that of his rival, Garfield, who, it seems, if tho Congressional Rec ord is truo, engaged in every disreputa ble job that came along. Off mi Track. Leonard W. Jo romo, a prominent and wealthy Re publican of Now York city, has come out for Hancock. Mr. Joromo usually contributes 125,000 to a Presidential campaign. This takes an influential man and a nice sum of money away from Garfield. Hon. Job Stovonaon, for many years a Radical Congressman from Cincin nati, aays: "In jnatico to the party, it should be slated that if Iho candidacy of Garfiold bad boon proclaimed for a woek only a week before Ibe Con? vontlon met, he never would liavo bson nominated." And he throws ont a very broad hint that ho will not go Garfield in Novembor, because of the notorious shortcomings of the candi dato in a moral point of view. Wur NoTf The Williamsport Ban ner romarks: "Why notongage Schity ley Colfax, Gon. Belknap, and the rest of tbo 'soiled characters' that were laid aside by the dovelopmenU of Con gressional peculations a few yeara ago, to stump tho States of the North for Garfield. Thoy are all ready to swear that his record it at white at mow, and that he is as innocent as they were of any Intended crime, when he invested in Credit Mobilier Blocks, or took money for political influonco in favor ol Congressional schemes ol a dishon orable character." L . Radical Troubles. Somo of the Republican newspapers which affect great horror at tho prospect of the Confederate Rrigadicrs gotting into power, have no answer to make to the tartling comparison that, of the two great opposing corps commanders on the field of Gettysburg, lhj rebel Long street baa roconlly been appointed by a Republican administration Minister to Turkey, whilo tbo I'nion Gonoral, Haiwauk, Is the Democratic candidate for President. 'SALARY GRAR." Tbia is tbe ghost that now disturbs Ibo Gin fielders. Ho bus tbo swig in his pocket, and tbo West Chester RiC ord, tho local orgiin of Judgo llutler and tbo Htute Treasurer, in alluding to tho "grub," goes on in Ibis way : - 8u far ai Ibe Republican! are eonoerned, It makaa little odds what falaehoode, or bow many ol litem, Ibe Democrelio newiaiera print oon cerning Urn. Oarfield, but even the rea-lere of Dtnaocratie newfiepere are entitled to have some thing besides lies. A story wbiob is now persist ently adhered 10 la tbe sheets designated is that llrdoral Uerfleld is "a salary grabber." We find tbie untruth in n number of our Dcaooralie as ebangea, among them tbe following! The Uumtm, M iluiugton, Dataware. Tbe frelieef, Keslon, 1'eon'e. Tbe Jtrmoernt, West Cbssler, Penn'n. Tbe HaruauCAR, (Wallace's orgenl Claarfl.ld, Penn'a. Now It Is next to impoeslbte that these news paper, ah.uld lot b. perfectly well nwar. that the charge of salary grabbing as applied to Uea era! Uarleld le uujust and nutrua. They eanuut well be igoorent .1 this, for th. facts baye be.n fully etated in leeding Journals tiiat ho voted chains! the salary grab in the House, and turned th. amount which it gar. blm Into tbe lulled States Treasury, io full. That ths newspapers niuied choose deliberate ly to enroll lueuisrlvea In Ibe li.t of ootnmnn li belers and fel.lflt.ra will clearly appear If Ibey continue printing th. falsehood we reler to. Per haps tbey may, thougb it is to be hoped, for tbe credit of tbe parly to wblt-h tbey belong, that they will prefer not to persist in re-asserting what tbey know lo b. false, e e Tbo way to settle iho veracity in this cnio between Garfield and bis backers and the United Stales Treas ury, is to get Socrclury Sberniuii'a affidavit on tins point. Garfield's neighbors truo Ohio Iliickcyes toll us ho did luko the "grab," and tbe Record man knows thai lie is lying about it. "Government" Remarks. An ex change remarks : "Tbo very good opinion some individuals hold oi' them selves usually escapes when they aro unexpectedly culled on for a speech. Tho other day in New England, when Mr. Uuycs was addressing somo stu dents, he made a remark of no conse quence, adding, 'I say this with em phasis; it is well to say things with emphasis as it shows you have decision of character.' Ho could not moro clearly havo said, '1, Ruddy Hayes, have, decision ol character ; behold a pattern.' Gen. Grunt, usually modest, was not to be outdone by his fraudu lont sncocssor. A few days Inter, speaking at Kansas City, ho said, 'I am not awuro of having committed an act in my lifo or saying a word which has injured my own standing ono way or tbo other.' Ho points bis forefinger at bis breast and exclaims, Heboid tho perfect man. flitch remarks as these, oomiug from such men, show the pro gress of American impudenco under tbo lostering raro of tbe Republican pary" Remold tux Hypocrite l'or bold ness, tbo Itcynoldsvillo Paper has few equals. In caps tbo oditorof tbo same rooords, via : "In politic, our paper Is unbiased." Rut at the head of the noxt column wo find tho following: "Hancock, tho man, is not objoctiona blo ; but Hancock, tbo Democrat nom inee, is seriously objectionable. Vote for Uarfleld, bocause ho represents policy, principle, issue. Tbo oounlry is prosperous. A chango of Adiniiiia trntinn would be attended with more orlessdanger. If you are sulisfled with tho times, do not moddlo or trifle with thorn. Do not vote for Hancock be cause bo Ib a good man and a soldier, but voto for Garfield because it is bet ter to let well onough alone." Reader, what do you think of tbo editor who thus boldly and brazenly prevaricates, and assumes that you aro too stupid o soo Ibo deception. The Democrat who will dance a jig to that luno'is easily fooled. The Fitness of Tiiincis. The Bridgeport (Conn.) Farmer, published at tho homo of Marshal Jewell, Ibo Chairman of tho Radical National Com mittee, Boys : Tho managers of tho Iio- pulican Presidential campaign seem to havo been very appropriately chosen. Messrs. Jewoll and Dorsoy, as Chair man and Secretary of the National Committee, respectively, nro not likely to bo troubled by any scruples m work ing for Garfield and Arthur. The former has achieved an unpleasant no toriety in this State through his skill ii dirty, underground political work, and cx-SoiMttor Dorsey has been con nected with pavement frauds in Wash ington and ban a very unsavory record in otbor matters. Tbo two men, with Garfield and Arthur, make a picture upon which tbo popular eye is likely to linger long but not lovingly. A Family Fuss. There is a teapot tempest raging in tho bosom of. lion. H. H. McCormiek.of Allegheny oounty. IIo was Vnitod States District At torney lor the Western district of Penn sylvania, and bo is not. His term having expired, Hityes named in his stead William A. Stone, Esq. Mr. Me Cormick was a Grant Republican, and ho declares that the Administration is trying to defeat Garfiold in Pennsylva nia by snubbing the Grant mon. It is probable that tho w hole trouble finds its solution in the fact that the authorities at Washington havo not bo high an opinion of McCormick as McCormick has of himself. A Cheap Candidate. Tho Now York Sun plugs the Radical nominee for President In this matter of fact way: "Tho fco of 15,000 which Mr. James A. Garfield, Chairman of tho nouse Committee on Appropriations, roccived from Do Golyer A MeClollan for 'casually speaking lo Gov. Shep herd' in favor of a quick-rotting wood en pavement, equalled Mr. Garfield's salary as Congressman for a whole year. It was just fifteen limes as much as the bribe by which Oakos Ames bought him for tho Credit Mo bilicr." A Jonnrx Htii.l. "Men aro known by the company they koep, und par tics by tho men to whoo bauds tbey confide tbeir interests," says Iho Now York Tribune, and straightway en dorses the Republican National Com mitteo for selecting Dorsey for Secre tary, whom il denouncod somo years ago as a jobbor. Garfiold boing a no torious jobber and swagger, it is but proper that Dorsey should be a mem ber of tho same family. "Birds of a feather will always flock togcthor," is an old Baying. Afflicted People. This seems to be a very sickly poriod for our Radi cal friends. Senator Don Cameron was too tick to take the Chairmanship of the National Committee. Conk nj is suffering with nausea, Logan is in bad health, Arthur's legs are rheu matic and bo will run very poorly, whilo Garfield feels every hour as H he ought lo throw np. Poor fellows I HOW THEY VOTED. Many porsons, in our bearing, have expressed a desire to know how tho Pennsylvania Delegation voted on tho Presidential question in Ibo Cincinnati Convention, and we havo taken tho trouble to ascertain tbo vole and annex il.

Uarfleld went to tho army In 1 SCI as Colonel of an Ohio regiment. lie quickly sought and ob tained a position as stuff officer and at onco became a candidato for a Con gressional nomination, which ho ob tained in a slrcng abolition district in Ohio. lie wai elected in 18C2, and that was the last of his record as a warrior. While Hancock was fighting at Fredericksburg, Second Bull Run, Gettysburg, Williamsburg, in the great buttles of tbo Wilderness, In front of Richmond, &o., lo tho ond of tho war, winning victory by his great ability, energy and bravery on a hundred bat tle fields, Garfield was lolling in bis cushioned Congressional chair, and smirching his record with heavy fees from contractors, stock speculations and Biliary grabs I Be Honest poiiOsce. Not tho least of tbe ludicrous absurdities of the Re publican campaign is tbe cry which tbo organs and orators keep up in re lation to the election laws, and the al leged necessity ol their maintenance. Tho ready and suflli ient answer lo all this is tbo fuel that ibo Radical candi date, Gen. James A. Garfield, put on record bis omphalic condemnation of these laws, and Irankly conceded, in a spocch in Congress, that tbo Democ racy bad just cause of complaint against the partisan character of those enactments. If the Republicans wero not hard pressed for campaign capital thoy would not directly and positively antagonise tho recent and. solemn ut tcrunces of their standard bearer. Votes the Rkiht Ticket. When General Jerome, a leading Republican politician of New York, announced bis determination to support Hancock, be said all his family (a largo oonneclion) would follow. Tho Radical papors of Now York city soon published a letter from 1 homos Jerome, a brotbor, de claring continued adhesion to the Re publicans. Gen. Jerome replies that his brother Thomas is a very old man who years ago lost his mind and that ho would not know Iho meaning of tho letter bearing bis signature if read to him, and that thoretoro bo could neithor havo written nor authorised It. It is quite probubio, however, that a cra:y man might express a purposo lo adhere lo the Republican paily ! Bad Brains. Tho Washington 'gif chimes In on tbo Radical nomineo in this way : Tho claim that Garfield will bo elected because ho is "a man of brains" is not solidly founded. Tlio uso lo which brains aro put, not tho mere fuel of their possession, la tbe main thing in a mailer of this sort Wo look for Garfield's defeat for these reasons, among others : 1st. Tbe De mocracy havo a majority of voles, to pile up against him. 2d. He has made a bud uso of his admitted brain-power, Hud he boon loss strong in intollectnal resources be would bo moro excusable for tbo slips and crooks in his record- as that record exists in Iho archives of tho Capitol. A Thundering Tri tii. Tbo Spring Hold (Mass.) Republican, an organ ol 'tho loyal millions" of tbo Plymouth Rock persuasion, in alluding to the Presidential question, remarks: "Re publican papers, which aro working Ihemsolves up for lear tho Democratic party will boIzo tho Presidency Ibis timo, may as well remcmbor that tho only party which evor gavo up tho Prosidoncy when all its own mcmburs and many of the opposition thought its candidulo elected was Iho Demo orotic party, which is now charged by its opponents with intending to seize the Government, wkatover the result may bo." Uow is Hint for truth and veracity. One After Another. Tho venera ble Pclor Cooper, who was tho Green back candidato for President in 1870, called on General Hancock on Mon day week wilh tho Hon. Samnol Cary. In tendering him Iheir con gratulations they expressed the ot most confidence of his election. A Political Straw. Very signifi cant, indeed, is tho indorsement of Gon. Hancock by the society of the Cincin nati at Ibe meoling in Now Y'ork re cently, al the, same timo thst Hon. Hamilton Fish la re-elected President or tho Jss3f;ntion. Fish was Grant's Secretary of State. "OLD CHICK A MA VGA." Our opponent! baso all their hopes, in a military sense, on tbo part Gar field look in the battle of t'hicamauga. Ono of the chief heroes of that bloody field ia General Stecdman, of Toledo, Ohio, be is a brother In law of Judgo Barrett's, and during the w ar delivered a speech in this borough, and is theio- fore persiiiiully known to those of our citizens wbo were present, ami we hub peel that be will mako another speoch in our town before November, famil iarly known as " Old i'lviekainauga, " it it well known is the ruul buro of that bloody battle. At a Democratic meet ing in Toledo tho other evening, Gen. Stecdman mado a speech from which we extract tbe following : ' ll was evident from the first tbut Hunoock was tbo choice of tho people. From tho moment his name was men tioned the enthusiasm grow in his lit vor. Ii was in response to tbo demand of the people that he wus nominated, Genorul Huncock was a heroic soldier, anil, liko Andrew Jackson, when tbo wur ended ho showed biiusell to bo a great statohinan. Ho i.phcld the law and acknowledged the sovereignty of tho people. From thai lime be has been regurdod as one eminently quali fied to administer tbo affairs of this great nation. Hancock, liko Andrew Jackson, wus a great soldier, and liko Jackson bo is also a great statesman, and if elected he will give to the coun try such tin administration as Hint of Jackson. As lo Guiierul Garfiold, tbo General said ho bad not a wortl to say against him. He was a good volunteorsoldier, though early rosigning bis command in tho fluid lo lake a Beat in Congress. But as a soldier compared wilh Han cock, ho compared about like a tom tit compared with the American eagle. Vhcn Garfiold was at Chicago thoy culled him "Chickamauga," and its hero. Up to thul limo (icncrul Stecdman said he had had some idea ho himself was al that skirmish. So far as be know Garfield at that battle command, cd just two men himself and an or derly, Gonoral Garfiold was, he said, a bravo man, an honest man and a gallant soldier; but lo coinparo him as a soldier to Ilancoi li was loo ridicu lous. On every field upon which Han cock fought ho won imperishable re nown. Through his whole lifo ho never did a thing for which a friend should bhisb.

Tho N. Y. Sun publishes a letter from General Hancock, as fol lows: . Governor's Island, New York Harbor, July (I. i am lato in respond ing to your kind notes and telegrams. My correspondence, personal and olll ciully, at all times heavy, has boon im mensely increased lately. I am not abloat present to ros pond promptly and fully to all of tho welcome greetings extended to mo. 1 hope unavoidable delay will not be mistaken tor indiffer ence or ncglor t. Tho truth is, I have not heretoioro realized how many there aro in Hie land who feci kindly toward mo personally and who cspouso the causo in which I havo been so conspic uously honored. In delay ol my acknowledgements 1 beg the forbear unco ot my friends, and of my most in tiniuto I venture to ask the most in this regard. Thanking you most heartily for your congratulations and for your kind letters, I am truly your friund, Winfield S. Hancock. Tnr True 1nwardnrss.-TIio Louis ville Courier-Journal docs not think that the Republican National Com mittee will undertake a serious can vass in tho South. It says : "Tho rea son they carefully refrain from stump ing tho Southern States is that tbey know, if thoy go thero and conduct a campaign, they will simply provo to the Northern Republicans that they have been lying about the Soulh. By pretending that thoy will be shot as soon as they stop on Sotithera soil tbey can koep np bitterness, and that la the soe aim of Ibo Republican loaders. Tho Courier-Journal is oply half right. A superior reason for tho neglect shown by the Republican party in nursing its Southern strength is to bo found in a hoped for solidity at tbe North. This hope is now nearly aban doned, and tho Republicans are detor mined to re establish their party in the South. Jt ia thoip true policy. But success there is utterly Impossible. No GomiiNii. A oontemporary re marks: Every word which the Re publican newspapers and campaign speakora utUr in oondomnotion of what thoy turm the "Dcmer ratio on- elaught on the safeguards of the ballot box" is a direct condemnation of Gon. Garfiold, who was the author of the alleged "onslaught," twice velood by Mr. Hayes. Mr. Garfield's speech on tho oloction laws out to be put into Re publican hands by Democratic mission arios, lor il Is studiously ignored by fbe Radical press, I THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE. Senator Wallace, as we have already said, duos not sook tho Chairmanship of iho National Domncrolic Committee. Ho does not desire a position thai would increase bis burdens. Bui al Iho samo time he.would not shrink from its responsibilities. He bad tho cause of tbo Democratic parly too much lo heart to decline the performance of uny duly tbut inuy be required ofhim in this con test. Tbero is, however, no dispute upon tho Chairmanship. Tbo only ob ject is lo secure the best Chairman un der all the circumstances, und this will bo dono without regard to personal wishes or predilections. The Cincin nati Inquirer exactly defines the situa tion thus : The National Democrat!. Commits., will meet oo. w.sk bene.. A Chairman of tbe Committee will be ehosen, and tb. .rr.ngeinnnls lor tb. ail duot or lb. campaign will ho begos. It Is grati fying to know tbat there la no ooftest for tbe Cba,irmenbip. There la no .agerue.a to grasp It on tba part or anyone. Tbare I. no unwill. iagness to take it on tbe perl or anyon.. There Is no bitterness. There Is no struggle. If Mr. Iiarouio Is chosen Chairman It will be without opposition. ;if benatar Wallace lecbosen Chair man it will be without opposition. What acouis t be best for the party will be dooe harmonious ly. Henalor Wallaoooaa havo;ihe Cbairman.blp If be .i.bea it, and bia eloaenees to lien, llan cook and his political experience and skill point lo bis .Ircllon. Tb. Chairmanship would be gracefully conceded to him if he desires il. If be prefrrs tocondu. bis atteotloa to Pennsylvania, or, for any reae-in, declines the place, tb. chair, uiaurhip will be readily given to Mr. Barnuin. Whether Mr. Wallace be made Chair man of tbo National Committco or not tbo suggestion of this name for tho position has evoked testimonials of personal esteem and confidence from some of tbo best Democrats in the land which are gratifying lo bis friends in Pennsylvania. Senator Bayard says We have a great many men wbo would III tbat uosiUun wilh ability and Real.

In an interview wilh Ibe New York World, tho Hon Milton Sayler, a di tinguished Democrat of Ohio, pays the following tribute to the ability and fit ness of Senator Wallace : If you will allow m. to mak. n suggestion, whil. talking about Pennsylvania, there ia one tfaing she can do, and in my judgment ought to do, and tbat is, furnish tb. very beat man In tb.

I do not mean to disparage othere wbo might have tbe claims and quail Ileal ione for tbe position. 1 only giv. my own Individual opinion tbat among in.m all wetlacia easily Bret. An Impreunaui.e Candidate. The New York Sun shines after tins lash- ion : "General Hancock, as an officer of Ibo army, has always been in public lifo, "in person bo is comparatively a giunt. Ho cannot movo about, or go anywhere, without attracting atlen lion. "In the avowal of sentiments he is remarkably outspoken. "Andyot, thus early In tho campaign, tho Republicans seem lo have becomo completely discouraged in Iheir efforts to find anything be has done or said, in all bis lifo, to find fuult with. "So now thoy full to liko a pack of disappointed and hungry hounds, and aro trying to tear him lo pieces for something which they say and imag ine he might, could, would, or should bare dono under other and different circumstances ! "They can make out nothing strong er against bim. "What a tribute to tho purity and wisdom of his life ! " OuuhttobeScalped. When Hayes was nominated for Congress in tbe Ohio district in 18C4, and requested to loave bis position as an army officer and come borne and make political speeches, be answered vary tartly: Yours received. Tbaaks. I beve other busi ness luat now. Any man who would leav. tb. army at tbie tim. tn .leelloneer for Congresa .r any Dinar piac. .ugnt u oe scalped. Yonre respectfully, H. B. Uarsi. General Garfield, whilo in tho army, was nominated for Congress and got a "leavo of absence on account of sickness," and camo home, mounted the Btump, and mado a vigorous cam paign, as Ibe old files of tho papers in his district will show. According to Hayes bo "ought to bo scalped '' He will be nexl Novomber. The Rkiht Tiiino Gon. Chalmers, of Mississippi, who was badly whip, ped by Hancock, at Gettysburg, in '03, suggests n mooting of the surviving officers of the Foderal and Confeder ate lines on tho old contested field. It will not bo surprising if the meeting of Union and Confederate veterans at Gettysburg, suggested by Gen. Chal mers should turnout a big thing. "Lot us shake hands on Cemetery Heights," says General Chalmers, "on the spot where Hancock fell, after bia gallant struggle bad turned the tide of batlle in fuvor of the cause ho loved." There are a good many old Second Corps men in Ibis region who would enjoy a visit to Gettysburg on such an errand. "Political Knaves." Tbe editor ol tho Boston Advertittr seems to have (good mad-on, and delivers bimsell as follows : "The Greenback candidacy is afiaudof iho moat transparent char acter. Tbe party ia made up of knaves and dupes. The knaves pro pose to soil out the dnpos, if they can, to any other party, no matter what, wbich will pay them a good price. Tho time has gone when any man can be a sincere Groonbacker with any protension to com mon sense. The party will not carry a single Congressional district in the country without help. It will not hare a singlo electoral vote." The editor is evidently mad at Ben Butlor A New Man. W. A.tilone. Hsa.. bas boon appointed U. 8.

We notice that some ol the liadioal organs are calling on Gon. Hancock to resign bis position in the army. Since Garfiold ia a mem ber of the House, and has been elected to the Senate, would it not be well for blm to Inaugurate tbo roalgnatlng movomont. More: Did Grant resign when bo was nominated f Wbt not Produce it. Tbat bril liant essay on wood pavements, for which Chairman Garfiold was paid 5,000 by De Golyer A Co., has never beon permitted to see tbo light. This is a great loss to oor curront political literature. i A WAR CLOUD. Tho Philadelphia Record romarks Thero is a whisper of war in tho latest advices Irom r.uslern I'.uropo. turkey rosenls the proposed Irmnsler ot a largo slice ol tho old liroeiun territory Irom her jurisdiction to tbo modern King dom of Grevco, and appears inclined to carry her protest aguinst the recom mendation of tbe Berlin Confurcnce to the extent of armed resistance. Tho Porte is already mtikiugaclive military preparations, oven going so fur us lo release malefactors Irom mo prisons oi Constantinople for scrvico in Thessuly and Kpirus. Turkish troops aro being concentrated within striking distance of the disputed territory. Greece, oil the otbor hand, ia putting herself in a dolensivo position, and enlistments are actively progressing wfih a view to the impending struggle. Taking these two nations by them selves there is an immense disparity In tbeir relutlve strength and resources. Tho population of Turkey when last ascertained was 9,573,00(1, while that ot Greece wus 1,4 57,8:1 1. J ho Turkish regular army numbers 157,CU7 men, but the uslimato of her war footing is 018,100. The Kingdom of Greece has a regular army of 12,3!i7, with u wur footing of 30,000, less than one l en tielh ihul of Turkey. Greece hus but 21 naval vessels, manned by 052 men, while Turkey bas 170 vessels, with about 0,000 mon. Tbo war, howovor, If tbero is one, will not bo confined to tbo immediate parties to tbo struggle All Europewill lake a hand in the tight when it comes, and tho result is likely to bo very different from the issue of tho lamous war of the Crimea, it will not be this timo an ulliunco of France and Great Britain against Russiu for Hie maintenance ol lurkisn autonomy. Tbe aspect of the long and vexed Eastern question, which has more or less controlled European diplomacy for tbo greater part of the present coulurv, has undergone a noteworthy change of laio years. The "sick man of Kurope" lias been all along moro a puppet t bun anything elso in the bauds ol the great Christian nations seeking to preserve the bhlanco of power as against the presumed am. bilious designs of Russia. But for those necessities of statecraft the anomaly of Mussulman absolutism in Europo would havo long since tlisap pcared. It tbe Sultan now fatuously interposes force to defeat the solemnly declared willol tbe Powers that joined in the programme of tho Berlin Con ference tho days of bis power, on this side of tbo Bosphorus and thu Darda nelles al lenst, aro numbered. Tbe action of the Confuionco was u media tion rather than an arbitration, but in this case it is equivalent to a command. Tbe rehabilitation of Greece has been resolved upon, and it will be made good at any cost. Tbo friendly countenance which Christian Kurope gave to the Greeks when they rebelled sixty years ago aguinst the Mohammedan slavery of four centuries mado thoir bravo effort for freedom to a degree successful in the establishment of modern ti recce as an independent kingdom, and Olho, her first King, wus chosen by Russia, France and Great Britain as long ago as 1H32, Greece has beon over Binco practically under the protection of thoso two great nations. Tho reign ing Boveroign,George l,son ol Christian IX of Denmark, was elected with their approval in 18G3 ; and there is every reason to beliovo that the proposed ad ditions lo his domain, taken as they arc from tho torritoryof ancienlGreeco, and being in fact merely a restoration, will bo mado effectual by tho combined force of Christian Europo. effaTTs(Tafami L Y DISGRACE. A BROTHER SHOOTS 1118 BISTER FIVE TIMES. Danville, Va., July 9. Last night about midnight Thomas do Jarnctte entered a bagnio boro inquiring for Mollie de Jarnetto, an inmate thereof. She appeared, recognised him as her brother, and at his request wenl with him to a private room. A few minutes later repeated pistol shots were beard from the room. The polico wore called in and found the door fastened. Tbey broke il down and discovered tho girl lying on Iho floor weltering in her own blood, her brother standing by her, pistol in band. Ho immodiulely con fessed having done it to wash .out tbe disgrace of his family by bis sistor's conduct. He surrendered himself to the officers and bas beon committed to jail. IIo declares his willingness to accept the penalty or the law. Mod ical examination showed tbat the girl was shot in fire places, two at least necessarily fatal, and that she cannot survive. She protests that her brother waa right in taking her life, and begs that be be not punished. On their separation after tbo tragedy the broth er and sister embraced with mu tual torgivoooss and tears of grief. The girl is only 17 years old and wont wrong but a few months since. She is romarkablyintolligcntnnd fino looking. Her brother is about 20 and is a rail road agent and telegraph operator at Brown's Summit, N. C. Tho mother is the widow of Dr. James do Jarnetto, and lives in Caswell county, N.C., near Danville. Hendricks on Indiana. The Re publican papers havo boon very busy tbo last two weeks telling tho country tbat William U. English was over bo unpopular a man, ana that Indiana was sure to go for Garfield. Tbe way it will go for Garfield is thus confessed by no Icsb authority than the man who by right ought now lo be vice presi dent of the United Slates, a position to which bo was unquestionably elec ted in 1870 : Indianapolis, July, 1880. Cot. John Ferry, Mr Dear Sir: I was very glad to receive your.kind letter of the 28th ult. I very Bincorely thank you for it. As my friend, I want you to feel assured that I have no grievances growing out of the Cincin nati Convention. Tbo New York dele gation assurod the delegations from olher States that 1 could not carry that Slate, and tbat prevented my support Irom them. A State that doubled us ability to carry New Y'ork did well not to support mo. I want you to bo as sured also that I will most cheerfully and oarnestly do my part to secure success, as will all my friends in this Stole. We will curry the Stuto.
