The Philadelphia luC'rd, an as sistant Democratic journal, tbi.s speaks of the result of the Democratic Convention in Ohb : The nomination of Kwiag as the Democratic candidate for Governor of Ohio makes the Gnancial question the issue of the campaign, and puts tne Democratic party distinctly on the wrong side of it. The resolu tions are nothing; the candidate is the platform. Every conservative man in the country will regard the election or Foster, the Republican nominee, as every way desirable. Republicans will have reason to re joice in the success of their candidate, and level-headed Democrats will see in such a result a failure which has less peril in it than success.

Tha Deao- Tiie State Legislature adjourned jocratic members of tho llonse and t noon on Friday la-t. whereat. uual, there is apparent rejoicing among our rural brethren cf press. It has become customary with that clafs of journalists to tL6Dk God! for Legislative adjournment,. Why or wherefore, we cannot con jecture, unless like tha child's prayer, it is learned by rote to bs repeated on stated occasions. The fecsdijn of that budy jut ad journed, was protected, and the number of necessary laws euacted, few ; but it must be remembered that theee enactments were culied, and formed and shaped from an immense mass of crudities annually poured into tbe legislative hopper, by tbe grasping, the selfish, the discontent- ed. and the aoirintr members ol the community, each and all of whom r t has a purely personal motive to bo ; aitai&ed, by or through legir.Ialive j action.

Tbe Legislature just adjjurued was composed of the average materi al, fretted its brief hour upon tbe stage without lare profit, but with no di risive result materially birie ful to tbe State. lis svi-hou was much protracted by reason of ibe Riot claim bill, and its consequent influence upon and procrabtinaii on of other business, and the mist gratify ing result of its lab.r is to be kuad in the evidence Gaaby vj.iu.red, of tbe eteriing worth end honesty of a large majority of its merubers. Its iacan Bciaeotial effort to ferret cut and pun ish the corrupt creatures who d s graced it, is much to bs regretted, but is measurably compensated by the evidence elicited, of tbe tried aod approved integrity of the large mass of its members. Viewing it from a partisan stand point, Republicans can feel well con tent with the general results of the session, and from a local point of view, rest thoroughly satisfied that our own county and people were well and ably represented by men who ployed no inconsiderable pari, and whose action can be thoroughly en dorsed by their constituents. Is its State Convention oa Wednes day last, tbe Ohio Democracy mist thoroughly gave itself away, :n nom inating General "Tom Ewing" for Governor. Ewing has been the most blatant cf Greenbackers, and by his (nomination the Democrats thought to catch the vote of that party, but they, being assembled in Convention at the same place, (Columbus), re fused to swallow the bait, and placed in nomination a candidate of their 00. Tne net result of the tvo con ventions is tbif: Tna Democrats threw overboard their present Gov ernor Hishop who was evidently tbe strongest candidate before ibe convention. He and his friendi, in turn, helped to beat Rice, who was the candidate of the Tburman wing of tbe party, and tbe result was the nomination of Ewing, not as a 'com promise candidate, but as an acci dent, the man on whom the vengeful partisans of the ether two candidates threw off, intent primarily on beating each other, but each faction hopeful of catching the greenback vote, for this the most pronounced greenbacker among the Democratic candida.es. In this tbey were doomed to be dis appointed however, as the Green-j back Convention, notwithstanding tbe eager manipulation of its Demo cratic element, insisted upon putting ; its own candidate in tbe Geld, where upon tbe Eaing element bolted and at once called another convention. The suaiaiary cf the event as sporting men say :a as loiiows Tburman, who based his hopes of the Presidency on maintaining bis man Rice and carrying tbe State is flat tened out. Bishop, tbe present G v ernor, who hoped to be nominated and carry tbe Slate in tbe interests of Tilden, is badly whipped, and con sequently "Sammy" will not open a new barrel to carry for bim a doubt ful State. Ewing who also has Presi dential aspirations, based oa being elected Governor, has Tburman in his wool, Bishop pegging Lim ia the midriff, Tilden scouting bis soft money vagaries, and viciously kicking his shins as in bis road, and tue Green backers swearing they will not be used aa a tail to the Democratic kite for any man professing their creed, but steadily training wi;b another organi zation. And iu this shape the "hap py family" enter a campaign against "Charley Foster," ibe Republican nominee, one of tbe ablest aod best organizers in tbe State, a man conceded ability, and of large and growing personal popularity.

The Irrrraairllithlea. About tbe darkest blot on the rep utation of Americans for popular in telligence is the existence of ibe Greenback party, and the fact that not even tbe logic of eveu s can clear eome men's brains of the soft-money cobweb that has been spnn therein. Immediately after ibe passage of the Resumption act in 1 875 they com menced their evil predictions that we never could get back to specie payments, or that if we did, it ould not be maintained, and tbey rung an infinite variety of changes en this theme. Bat in spite of tbe false prephets resumption was perfected at tbe appointed date; the paper dollar in tbe workinguian's pocket was made equal to tbe gold dollar in the bank vaults ; all kinds of legitimate busi ness and industry grew better, and now, six months after resumption, we have proved that it can be up held. Most men, when they find that tbey have been utterly mistaken as to any matter of policy and prac tice, and that things have turned ont exactly opposite to what tbey antici pated, have the modesty to acknowl edge their error, and to refrain from attempting to teach where they bave only blundered. Tbe inflatiosists, however, are a brilliant exception to this rule of common-sense. The proof that tbey were all wrong bs simply made the mass of them more blantant than ever. In the Demo cratic party and tbe Greenback or ganization they still cry oat for bas tard money, based on nothing, de manding that the government shall set the treasury printing presses to work, and turn out fictitious dollars until tbe land is strewn with worth less paper currency. It seems al most as if they were infected with tbe obstinacy and ignorance of half-civ-ilzed people. Of course, it is as useless to talk to theee perverted folks as to attempt to argue with a phonograph. Nobody can pretend to anacretand the details of what tbey want, for tbey are not exactly lucid in their own ideas, and are quarreling among themselves But tbe one central feature of all their schemes whether contained in an Ohio Democratic or a Maine Green back platform is tbe issue by tbe government of an unlimited amount of irredeemable paper, regulated by what tbey are pleased to call the de mands of business. As Congress would gauge the sum, its stupendous knowledge of what busioess requires wonld inevitably come into play. It is more than ridiculous that while both wings of tbe Ohio Greenbackers are in unison on this delectable plan, tbe seceders from the convention of Wednesday broke away because tbey could not "conscientiously" sustain that plank in the platform which calls for the payment of tbe government bonds ia greenbacks. Here is split ting a hair 'twixt south and south west sides with a vengeance If we are to bave an nnaamned flood of paper money that represents nothing and is never to be redeemed, it would make no difference what the bonds were promised to be paid in ; long befcre they fell due the country theu would be swept clean of any hooest money, and tbe holders might as well throw them into the fire. As for issu ing a sufficient volume of greenbacks to pay off the interest-bearing debt, that wonld call for a mere two thou sand millions of dollars, and bow near to nothing tbey would be worth it is impossible to say. Tbe thing is about as broad as it is long, and there is no occasion for the straight out Greenbackers to divide their bonse on this question ; nor, indeed, to buciv fiu luipaeBBUlo gull UCIWCCD either of them and the Democrats, who are filling themselves with tbe wind of the precious Ohio idea. The one pleasiog circumstance about their faction squabbles is that they bring oat into bald relief ibe fanatical and dangerous designs of ice extremists, and so impel to return to the cause of good money thousands ol voters whose jadgment was over come by tbe earlier fallacies of tbe inflationists, but who are not disposed to follow them to tbe end cf the path tney are warning ont. mere are many men who last year were Green- backers in the belief tbat resumption ' could iii h u?ou?!

General James Shields, late United States Senator from Missouri, died sudden ly in this city, at half-past ten o'clock last evening. On Sabbath day he appeared in his usual health, and ate a beany supper at six o'elcck. He wrote several letters during the even ing, but just before retiring complain ed of a pain in his chest, and soon tnereafter said to his niece that he was dying. Thirty minutes later be expired, sitting in his chair, remain ing conscious to the last. He lectur ed ia this city on Wednesday last, and had remained bere visiting rela tives. His remains will leave here for his home in Carrollton, Mo., at five o'clock this evening. General Shields was born in Ty rone county, Inland, in 1810, aod emigrated to the United Slates about 182C. He served in the Mexican war, and was elected a . lined States Senator by the Legislature of Illin ois in 184'.) In IS.) 7 be was tltcted aSeuator from the S:ate of Minnesota. At the breaking out of the war he entered the Union army and served with some distinction. His mutt notable exploit was ibe dtfrai of Stonewall Jackson, near Winchester, en March 2'ii, 1SG2 At the e!oe of the war be took op bi.-t residence in Carroll county, Missouri, where he lived in euch abject poverty tbat he was obliged to pawn bis sword voted to him by Congress many years ago. On tbe death of Senator Lewis Bogy he was elected to fill tbe unexpired term. His reappearance in tbe Sen ate was a matter of great iutercst, he having succesbively appeared in that chamber as the representative of three separate States. During his brief term he managed to bring on tbe exciting midnight debate over Jeff Davis by a proposition to pen-1 eion the veterans of ibe Mexican war. His record in tbe Mexican war was most creditable He was danger-, ously wouoded at Cerre Gordo, and was breveted Major General for his gallantry on that occasion. He was also severely wounded at the battle of Cbapultepec. The wound at Cer rn Gordo was from agrapesh t which went straight through his body, luDgs and all. and came out at tbe beck, aud ibe wound had to be clean ed by drawiog through it a xrs siltx handkerchief. General Shields was always a Democrat in politics Bold Ojjlictir. Kobbtrr. Chicaoo, June 7 At balf-pait two nYWk thia afternoon one of ' the boldest robberies ever committed iu Chicago was perpetrated near the iu tei section of Wabash avenue and Washington street. II U Henson, a stout colored boy, about twenty years old, bad been dispatched by the Illinois Central Treasurer with a package of money to the Merchants Loan and Trust Company's Bank Carl Wilson, tbe bank messenger, ac. companied him as a guard. The package contained between $9,000 and $10,000. Tbe exact amount is known, but the Treasurer refuses to give it for prudential reasons. When Uenson and Wilson reached the point above indicated, two men walked up to them at an ordinary brisk gait, separating as tbey approached, going on either side of the messengers. When they arrived withia reaching distance tbey threw tbe contents of a half-pound can of cayenne pepper full in the faces of Wilson and Henson, and subsequently dealr Henson ibree heavy blows with a sandbag, quick as tbonght seir.iog tbe package of greenbacks, which he carried in a small canvas bag under bis arm, then jamped into a covered bnggy, which stood by tbe sidewalk, and drove off at a furious rate south, down Wabash avenue. A considerable cumber of people wero on the thoroughfare at tbe time, and quite a number witnessed tbe bold proceeding, but none were able to interfere in time to prevent their es cape. The messenger 4 were nearly blind from the effects of the pepper, but as soon as possible reported the affair. The news was speedily flashed to all police stations, and most Vigo rous step3 were taken to capture tbe highwaymen. 1 bere is no very val uable clue to tbem, all descriptions being unsatisfactory, ibe rig has been found, and identified as oae hir ed at 11 o'clock this morning, at 517 State Street, by a stranger.

He bad just caused tbe arrest of a man nam ed Dunegan for illicit distilling. James Bryant, a brother in law of Dunegan, openly threatened tbat he woold kill Cotton. Little was thought of his threat. One day Bryant, while drank, told a man that be had killed Cotton and bidden bis body. Aa Bryant was a great braggart, bis story was not believed. Tbe disap pearance of Cotton had almost been forgotien, wLen, day btfere yes terday, Bryant, on bis death bed, confessed the deed fully and prayed for forgiveness. He said be tried to poison Cotton and failed. "x asper ated at this, be found bim in the woods one day and struck him a blow 6a the bead with a stick, break ing the skull. He buried Cotton's body near bis distillery. Yesterday persons searched tbe place Bryant bad indicated and found human re mains, with a skull terribly crashed. Near by was found a bottle of poison and a pistol. A Coroner's inquest was held, but failed to implicate any one but Bryant. Cotton was one of tbe most efficient men in tie revenue service.

The decorations within tbe District and at Arlington were iu charge of tbe Grand Army of tbe Republic. As early as 9 o'clock tbe people began their journey to General Lee's t. Id mansion acror the river ia Virginia ''Arlington" where some sixteen tbnusaud uai.;n dead ure buried. On their arrival at the city of lb dead, wbicb ia one of the most beautiful places in America, the assemblage scattered themselves throughout the grassy bills, sod from under the tow ering oaks they sat in groups chatting or making early raids on their dinner baskets. Whirl families came ; old soldiers bringing with tbeni their children born since tbe wai to inetili in their youthful minds the sacred du ty which will bo imposed on tbem when they are gone. There were plenty of Borers and decoration everywhere. Tbe tomb of the two thousand unloosen dead i was profusely decorated. My little buncb of evergreens was deposited there to remind their living souls of lbe presence of iheir comrade. Who knows but what some of cur brave couoiy boys lie under this monument ? Tbe Grand Army arrived shortly before twelve o'clock beaded by the Marine band in full dress uniform. The President and Mrs. : Haves ar rived shortly afterwards and after a National salute had beea i fired by a detaebmeut of tbe Signal Corp?, tbey inaugurated tbe ceremonies by plac ing wreaths on tbe tomb vT." tbe "un known." The procession beaded by tbe Marine Band and marines then formed in front of the mansion. Tbe flag on the pole there was at halt mast. The march was taken to the cemetery, a short stop being made at the tomb of tbe "unknown." Tbe band played a dirge while the tomb was further and profusely decorated with flowers. Reaching the cemetery the large procession ecattered in all directions and strewed flowers on the graves. Each grave had a small United States flag at its head. During these deco rations the bind played uolemn mu sic. Tne procession tbea reformed and marched to the amphitheatre where appropriate services were to beheld. Tbe amphitheatre was cov ered with new canvass; each of tbe posts which upheld the circular frame work bad tbe name of some hero of the war upon it above a victor's shield. Tbe old battle flags were there ia abnndance ; some with the torn shreds almost dropping from their staffs. The wood work below tbe speaker's stand was covered with bunting and evergreen wreathes. On a white background were tbe words "In Memoriam" ia box wood. Oa ibe stand besides tbe orator and tbe poet of the day and the officers of tbe Grand Army of tbe Republic there were Presideut and Mrs. Hayes, Webb Hayes, Secretary and General Sherman, (tbe latter in full General's uniform) Senators Bruce aod Win dom, General Meigs and othern. The assemblage was ciied r der by Deputy Commander Dingb-iu who said "eleven years ago the 30. h ot May was designated for the pur pose of sireaiog with flowers or oth erwise decorating the graves of com rades who died in defence of their country during tbe late rebellion.

"We also meet here each year not specially to rehearse deeds of valor for all admit that brave men were on both sides, but to glorify a principle for which each and every one of as fought, and which we trust, may gow brighter aod brighter as the years roll nn." Rev. A. F. Mason then offered a prayer and tbe Washington Sanger band sang a chorus entitled "The Lord's Own Day." 'Ibe original poem by Hon. R. M. Daggett, of Nevada, was then recit ed. It is entitled "The Watch on the Height. " It opens with ibe story of a Saxon King, whose subjects beaded by bis brother, rebelled, bat were conquered and then pardoned. Bat the spirit of treason did not sleep and they eudeavored again to overthrow tbe government, but their purposes failed.

After tbe reading of tba poom, which was quite long, the Marine Band feiBC 10-1 -hu1 tbo German iRftbun'i it.... i w r;r-. .1 was then ntroduced aod delivered tbe oration of tbe day. ! r-id(vd HOf'.at-r linwicjl tlMopeniotr remaras were sj.i"............ lo i fu!i ,u'' Comradks and Citizens : In view iT tbe capital etty I i.ur cutm try, iu sight t tiio mains of Freedom which surmounts the dome, i-f the oi lion's Capitol, on this summi . at tho foot of which rolls lh beauii ful Potomac, to be famtd in future years as tbe Thames, tbe Tiber, aod the Nile ; in sight of the spot where the immortal Lincoln, when ho bad just piloted our proud "Ship of Sta;e" through stormy eeas to a haven ef peace and safety, poured oa his heart's blood, a libation uoon bis country a altar, to mingle with that of tbe hun dreds of thousands who also paid the penalty of self sacrificing devotion to national unity and honor;: with Mount Vernon, which holds the tomb of Washington, just beyond the horo scope ot our vision ; within easy sound of tbe cannons' roar from many battle fields of tbe recent fierce war i by the side of tbe once proud home of she adopted eon of George Washing ton, and in later years ot General II.

Why deck tho aolditr's tomb with the iresh, fragraut flower of spring? These garlands aud wreaths wo strew here to-day are beautiful and iragraut, but ibeir beuuty will fade, and their fragrance depart with the setting uu. This coronation of floral offerings is nothing to the dead; it is much to the living. Tbes oead baye no captivity but tbe grave, and they are beyond our reach fcr good or evil. If ibe spirit wbicb movert us to briug hither these offerings ia as per ishable aa ih; uow ornamental 11 w ers, ibe offering will prove of iittlu permanent value to the living or tbe dead. This soiemu aud beautiful ceremony will be a most hhameles, anion m ockery if our souls a'e n t tilled with that high and holy re solve which inspired tbem. These dead, with stoul hearts, oeat with patriotic zeal while ia lifo against their country's foes. We shall dishonor their memories if we prove faithless to their exam ple. While their lives ebbing oat ou the bloody field of war or if thev died more slowly of wounds, want, or disease in hospital . i ..i i. their country remained a great beacon-light ot liberty that last hope of freedom to tbe oppressed. We chant the story of their greatness by sioging to the world of deeds accom plished, lbe snccesst 8 gained, and re sults attained tbrongb ibeir personal sacrifices. But lor ibese sixteen thousand dead aod ibeir dead and living comrads, tbe government ot the people by the people aod for tbe people would bave perished from the earth. Next be d welt upon the evils the rebellion brought upon our land, and said: But for the rebellion, eivilizi tion and Christianity would have stood still ia at least one half of the territory of this Union. But for tbe overthrow of the rebellion and tbe triumph of the Uuioi arms this now united naiion would bave been dismembered two flags would have floa'.ed over the inhabitants of a divided country, and at least one uew o tiiou would have been iu being, having for us primal object lbe preservation and perpetuation of human slavery. Had lbe rebellion been a success, lbe bsuo full doctrine would have attained tbat our national organic act conferr ed no power not subject to be con trolled, withheld, or terminated bv state authority. Had the rebellion triumphed and the Confederacy be come an accomplished fact, instead of being a united, liberty-loving people, with singleness of purpose, with one flag and one destiny, and a govern, ment to be emulated by all other na tions of the earth, there would have been two feeble nationalities engaged in exhausting the resources and ener gies of each oiber io perpetual strife, unfearcd and unbonored. Truly tiay be said: Oaiit la vain oar Diartyri alarlieil AnJ not Id vain oar heroes dial." Next lbe orator paid a tribute to tbe bravery of the American soldiers. But he made a distinction between the bravery of soldiers in a good and those iu a bad cause. He said : Had tbe French Marshal Moreau fallen at Hohenlindea at tbe head of a French army, and not at Dresden, fighting with ibe combined despotism of bis country's enemies against France and for her dismemberment, bo would have had a nation of peo ple to honor and ad.rn his name and perpetuate his fame. . Had Arnold failed at Saratoga and been spand bis fall a. West Point, his bravery and renown would have been placed alongside of Warren and other dis tinguished patriot dead of tbe war tf lbe revolution. Had Jefferson Davis fallen at Bnena Vista he would have beea spared a traitor's fame and tbe humiliation ot Irwinsville, and his name would have been registered among the lovers of his couutry. Ud General Robert E Lee paid the pen alty of devotion to his country at Mexico's capital, be wonld have been remembered io future vears as one who never deserted his country's fl g ia tbe hour of her greatest peril. Having spokea of the dead com rades of tho late war the speaker call ed attention to tbe duty of theliviog. lie ciosea dj saying tbat tbe history of all nations teaches that frequent recurrences of tbe principles wbich anima'.ed their patriots in times of peril is essential to tbe preservation and perpetuation of the result of their grand achievements. Tbe living are called upon by tbe same high obliga tion to preserve and perpetuate the result of these echieveruents as were the dead ia their lime called upon for their accomplishments.
