With characteristic sophistry, bo siys that 'our debt is not due until fifteen years from litis tima.' Therefor bo iajB its present discussion is useless it is nCt a practical question. How (also.

Horatio Seymour is tho very antipodes of Pendleton, and of tho Pendleton doc trine, lie is the man who has most ably and assiduously spoken and written against tho greenback dodge, nnd ho never was ony believer in State ltights.

Iu lS(iI, nt Chicago, be helped nominate Gen. McClellau lor whom ho mado fpccchcs, and ho had Mr. Long' motion to add tho 1st Kentucky to the platform tranglcd. Ho 's not a man who has cither the body, or tho mind or tho il.aractcr, to tally tho Democratic mascs even of New York City and State in theso evil ,day!, The burden of his, speeches is that wo must augment tho public credit, and by all means raieo the v;.!u6 of rcc:: hicks to p.,, Sou tT.tr., with cent per cent pay the public creditor. Ho will eonscut to tax eoutrury to tho uct of Congress; but not to scale nor repudiate the deb. Indeed, in ever? wav with thfl cmbasis of indignation, ho n'lTum thoj fuicrcd obligation to pay the debt, dollar for dollar; and resists cither partial or to- j tal repudiation. There is no real differ-' enco in regard to this mighty matter be- j twKMi Jlorutio Seymour nnd General Grnt.t. They uro both in favor cf taxing tli'i farmers and businc.-s of tho pi oducing States, down to tho bare nibsi' tciiCO for tho eitir.'ns, in order to keep on- paying tho inkiest, nnd ultimately tho wholo Hpeeio face of the bonds. Wo think that tho time has como to eperik of our own distress. We havo dwelt long ond heartily on tho odious abomi nations called "reeon: truetiou ' by Andy Johnson and a Congress representing Iho war Statin, pi!.et!4i'd Upon tho South. 'Iho South has been (dain, but if wo nc quiesco in tho Seymour policy wo shall bo slain, nnd neither West nor South can us 'ut tbo other.

Tho MiVi-ippi Vallny Movement should be set on loot. Wo bavo no interest iu these capitalists and ccntrali?.ationists.

Wo ought to raise- tho cry of Liberty nn;l the Constitu tion, Wo should speak out liko men tig:iir,st despotism at tho South ond against roobery nt too West. Wo idiouhl regard the men who d uo to utand in favor of our servitude to tho Last nnd North, whether Democrats or lb-publicans', OS the COllltnon enemy. Wo should do something nt onto worthy of our bi;h Jincagc, and of our dcfpcrato condition. Wo aro iu favor of tho Interior policy, and of making tho di rect issuo of nonpayment with tho bond bolder. We mo in favor of tho most prompt and public announcement of our most extreme Stato Sovereignty opinions, ineLrling iho remedies as well us tho rights cf States,' Wo. nro decidedly for co-operating- iu this perilous and momen tous crisis, with all truo Democrats in every part of tho Union. Finally, wo nro now ns wo have ever been, for finding j without any long delay a representative man irom too ranks or itio people, and placing our glorious standard iu l is hand. Jt has como to an i.suo of lifo and death; of liberty and si -ivory and instead of nc qu'rosving In a fraudulent platform, nnd perishing'tis a Democracy between politi ciann nearly identical, nnd both inimical, w e call on the good, tho W'iso ami bravo lo i u-iito with us in one universal Western If wo bad fought in committee like j heroes for u Western city as tho place, wo should have bad M r. Pendleton for the ; oandi l ite and no worso a platform, j When wc agree I to tako him to New York by giving up really everything the J committee could di-qso of, and accepted a transparent cheat of tho rct, wo invited a total defeat. Tho West and South has allowed the utmost limit of discussion about candidates but it has adhered to its section and tho interest of its ection, and whilo warning Mr. Pendleton against bad advisers and evil communications, it statod that ho was the best candidate wo could got out of the New York Convention, and that we would support bim against General Grant, unless a representative man of onr Stato 'Sovereignty, Hard Money and Freo Trade doctrino could bo found, of which we then saw no prospect. The moral of tho defeat is in two words: we must not tend any more such delegates OS we bid in the ro-cnlled National Com mitteo to compete with New Y'ork tacticians and strategists. . . . . What can be more transparent (o any body after tho event than that we were overmatched and out generated from tho very commencement. Tho West and South has twenty times said, when the candidaio came to be scleo ted, he would ba Horatio Seymour, the favorite son of New Y'ork. Wc havo taken tho occasion of every ono of his lettcw and speeches declining to bo a candidate, to fay that it meant the contrary. We bad an instinct, as well as a logical con viction, that tho opprcheuded result would and ought to ovcrtako us, because of the? inferior ngents by whom our business has been effectually done. Wo sent a parcel of delegates, nono of whom lint any right to be beard for livo minute in so vast an assemblage of the Union's ability. Thoy came themselves, after the meeting, when it was too late, to that conviction, and the iucapables abdicated, to let in others who bavo abilities, but no preparation. ,Val lnndigham had no sort of call to bo at New York. His antipodes is Seymour, who antagonises to bim utterly, aud yet his lovo of notoriety led him not only to men, who pressed the apparently rejuet ant Seymour not to decline. When bo gives advice hereafter, or ask any favor, ho will open bis eyes on w hat ho has done, llcfchould havo allowed that constitutional cnrplot, Mr. McCuok, to nonopolizo the shamo of volunteering to boot and cpur a New York copitalircr, and bondholder' favorite, for tbo saddle which bo is expec ted to fetiide until nil tho producers of tho Wc.t drcp from exhaustion. VIKVV3 OF THE DETROIT Fit 11 Titles. It is unnecessary to eulogize or deccribo Horatio Seymour. Ne man in tho Demo cratio party is politically better known.

A recognized leader of many years standing, ho can not, even by his oppo nents, be criticised, except for Jiis Demo cracy. It wns for that Democracy that ho lias been nominated. It is through that Democracy that bo will be elected. Tho only question that should bo asked nro whether ho will u.o all of his power and influence, if elected, to carry out tho prin ciples and tho policy laid down by tho Comcntion in tho platform. Is tbero a man, Democrat or opposition, who doubts it? . Tho nomination for Yico President was received some hours later, nnd tho name of Francis P. lllair Jr., was received with tho same manifestation of MtUfaction. Mr. lllair was at onco recogized s a prominent representative of tho West both iu Congress and in tho nimy a tried htntesman and a gallant soldier, educated in tho school of the Jackson Democracy, nnd un energetic opponent of tho rovolu tionnry extremists who buck to ruin tho country, WHAT 1 1 1 1!

The defeat of Mr. Pendleton will be Mnocrely regretted by tho masses of the people, ull over tho country, nnd more particularly throughout tlio West nnd Northwest. Though refusing tho West its rlnnW, tho Convention was not inscn uiblo of tho responsibility resting upon it und of tho great expectations of tho peo ple. Ileneo the country has been grati fied with tho nomination of ono of tho first statesmen of tho world, nnd tho second only to Gcorgo II.

Tho defeat of Mr. Pendleton occasions great disappointment, i ; ; THE LOUlSVILLt COURIER. - A stronger ticket, one deserving and commanding more of tbo pcoplo's confid ence, could not bavo been formed. It is a representative ticket. Tbo choice was made with unanimity and enthusiaim by the dolegttcs from every district in the Union, after full and deliberato. confer ence, and nfter fairly testing the strength of a number of tbo tnost able and popular men of th nPti') ' Ni"je!cgato who per ferred another to cither of the p'entlemcn chosen can think, after all the balloting, that bis prcferotico was that ol tko ma jority. Un tho contrary, tho manner in which the nomination wa eUccted makes it probable that tbo nominees were the first choice of a majority aud tho second choico of all, A an adyocato of emancipation in Mis souri, ho (stood stubborn and almost alone for years, bat wus ever fearless and con sistent in the expression of his views. He always recognized the white . s tbo sop eriot race; always scouted negro suiTrsgc and negro equality, and was always reccg nized us a strict construction Democrat upon all points but his "free soil" iden. In Seymour ws have a man of rare cul tivation, of stainless character, of genial manners, imbued with thoroughly Döui ocratio instincts, animated by noble pur poses, trained from bis boy hood in the old Democratio school of constitutional liber ty, long experienced and thoroughly ver sed in tho practical administration of pub lie affairs, and for keen insight, power ful analysis nnd chaste eloquence, with out a rival in the discussion of public questions. It was as Governor of the great Stote of New York that Horatio Seymour de-, fied Mr. Seward to tinkle hi little bell on her soil, or daro to arrest tho humblest of her citizens; and, while power glutted its political vengeance in other State, tho littlo bell remained mufilcd in New York. As to General Francis P. Blair bis nom ination was a token of respect for the army, and especially tho vocuntcer army of the Union. His nomination was, more over, at the samo time a recognition of the Great. West, and a handsomo and de served recognition of tho llepublicans who have joined tho Democratio party since their former associates have enlisted for negro equality everywbero else, and for nogroHuprcmaoy in the South. General IWuir is tbo n i : t ricrlJcotHl candidate (hat was ever nominated by the Democra cy from beyond the "Father of Wajerb. THE INDIANAPOLIS SENTINEL. Tbo friends of Mr. Pendleton have great eauso for rejoicing over the result of tho Democratio National Convention. They mado tho platform it is tho work of their hands nnd they nominated the candid ate for the Prchidcncy! This is glory enough for them, even if they failed to sccuro tho nomination of Mr. Pendleton himself, tlss timo. Til E C01.UMHI S, OniO, STATESMAN. ' In common with our fellow Democrat of tbo West, we wcto most anxious that our gifted statesman, Gcorgo II. Pendleton, should receive the nomination, yet, fail ing in this, wo abide by tho decision cf Die majority, which, wo tako it, is good Democratio doctrino. Tho more especial ly can we do this, 03 tho successful gentle man is tho candTdato selected by Ohio her second choice In Horatio Seymour wo havo tho man for tho crinis, the pro foundebt statesman this country can boast to day. Clear-headed, and of great ex perience, his election will give peace to tho country and confidence and repose to trade.

He was Never a Chase ManHe .Com. pares Grant to Washington. To the'VJiloT ' ff thello$(i,n Da 11 Adctr titer: I left Brooklyn on Monday, Joly'C, but not before the World had publiihed that I had, on Suudsy morniog, in a political sermon, come out for Ch?e for the Presi dency, and against Grant; and I bav seen the story every dsy 'siuce racing through the piper. There is not a word of truth in it. The sermon was not polit ical, and it made do illation either to Gtont or to Chsse. The application of some of it paragraphs, in cither direction, waa the work, of .the reporter of tbo World, not mine. " " . I bate never been a ChosC man. I havo for years, as a leader in publio affair deemed bim, like bis greenbacks, as pro mising more on the face than they are worth in gold. While the New York In dependent was laudiog him ss a demigod, and tho New York Tribune ws ukitg bia name toobcure tho prospects of Grant, I heartily aud openly clissgrced with both of them, for I thoroughly liked Grant and thoroughly distrusted Chite. He is splendid man to look upon, but a poor man to lean upon. Ambition lift some men toward things noble and good; makes them Urge and generous. Other roen'a ambition blurs ihc sharp lines and distinc tions bctweeu right and wrong, and leaves them, in the eagerness of over-aelfish'de-sires, to become a picy of bad men. I have for years felt that Mr. Chase's ambi tion was consuming the better element of his nature. I have liked Grant f.ora the first. Sol id, unpretentious, straightforward, apt to succeed and not spoiled hy success, wise in discerning men, skillful in using them, with the rare gift (which Washington had in an eminent degree) of wisdom in get ting wisdom from other men' counsel I confidently anticipate that, great as his military success ha been, be will hereaf ter bo known even more favorably for the wisdom of hi civil administration. Tho seveo-fold humiliations and recan tations through which Chaso was required to co for a Democratio nomination, only to 'co tho smiling Seymour looking be nignly down upon his lost estate, has 00 f arallel except in tho immortal history of leiocke Fuch. There will now be do third csndidate between (irsnt a,nd Sey mour. It will bo a fair Gpht between rugged honesty and plausible craft. IIknrv Warh llEEcnia. Uoston, July 8th, 1SG3.
