The subjoined is bub s partial list of the more prominent Republican leaders who have baited frota th main body of their party since it resol ved itJielf into a mere office holding, public blundering, rule-or-ruin factiou, orgaursed solely for the parposa ot continuing Graut io power and them selves io possesioej of the spoil of office, and of the privilege of plunder ing the people at will. Iking made out hastily, the iisl is necessarily incomplete. In addition tottlie names given, there are scores of bcal sad State politicians, of standing artd influence iu their retentive "l.aili. i - , uAwca r v vaunu, vu ijc mstnur, recall : Horace Greeley, the father and founder of the Republican party Sen ator Carl Sehnrz, Lyman Trumbull, Thomas W.Tipton, Reuben E. Fenton and Charles Sumner, th most potent of all the New E upland leaders ; Judge David Davis, of the Supreme (.urt of the United States ; Hon. B. Gratz Brown, Governor of Missouri, H. C. Warnioth, Governor of Louisiana; Wendell Phillip, the gra Abolition ojiitator and leader ol u-iaieal opinion throughout the Xorth ; Judge Stanley Matthews, of Ohio, and Chief Justice Briukerhoff and some thirty or forty p.ninincnt Republican rolitieians of tlio same State--known as Liberals ; Gencr?l Stephen G. Burbndo, Gen. B. V. Ruiikle Judge Waiden, aud Cols Ruukln and Johusou, accompanied by a nuii.ber of leading colored Repub licans and Sumuerites, said to repre sent some twenty or thirty thousand votes all, of Kentucky; Gen. Jud-oti Kilpatrick, of New Jersey, the celep rated cavalry officer, who is open mou thed in his hostility to Grant; Geu. James Longstreet, of Louisiana ; Hon Mr. Bruoks, of Missouri ; and a host of others in the same, as well as all the other States tf the Union. We should not omit fioni thi list the names of the five chief and most widely circulated Republican jouruaU in iho whole Union, namely: The New York Tribune, the New York mj, the Chicago Tribune, the Cincinnati Commercial and tbe Springfield (Mas" ) Republican, with their combined corps ol able and distinguished editors, writers and reporters. Thj last named journal the Spiitu fk- d Republican is by all odds the in s: infiuental poll tical journal, on t: ; side, iu all New England Like aii the o her trreat Republican new.-pap: rs, it opposes the rei.-lection of Gen. Grant. That jobbing, gilt takii g, reckless, and iudecorous Chief Magistrate has forfeited the ; respect, and incurred the vigorous i-ppo-it ion of journu's aud public men, without whose aid and support he co ii i a not have Deen elected in iooa The four ablot and most independent ' II j'ublicdn jour n ils is existence iu 1S6S j wtie the New Y-. rk 'Jribuue the j t.'iticiuuaii Commercial, the Chicago I 7V6Neaiid tlie .Spritiiifield Republican Ihey were all warm admirers of Graut for some time after thp leot thei. jiowei :u! assistui.ee to tkvale him to an office for which he has since proveq hiu sell wholly unfit They can afford to oppose him uow, becau-e their merit as newspapers and their linancial suc cess make them iudepeudeot ol admi nistration lavois, and embolden them to speak their teal sentiments. Thus, it will be seen, that President Gniit who, it is generally conceded, is to be the nominee of the I'hili di-Iphia Conveuliou has a'ienated many of the most eminent sn.tesuieu aud influential politicians of his party, as will a its most important journals. Very lew ol the old trusted Republican leaders continue to stand by him Charles Francis Adam, Chief Justice Chase. ChariesSuuiuer, Ljuian Trum bull, David Davis, Carl Schui z, Giatz Hrown, Horace Greeley, and. iudetd, all the emineut Kei ublicau leaders who had the confidence and admi ration ot the party ten years ao with the hardly possible exception of Wm. II. Seward deprecate the reelection of Grmitas a great nutioual calamity. Graut s most strenuous pre sent supporters are tainted mtn like Cameroii, Sickles and Ilorton. He is deserted by nearly all too old Repub lican leaders who contributed most to lotiud and build up the party. Never a Republican h.msel! till he was bribed by the hope of tho Presidency, aud diserted siuce his election by the old Republican chiefs, with his mdi ary prestige worn out and his iack of civil capacity shamefully demonstrated, there would be none so poor to do him reverence il he did not control the overcrow, n eoortaous patronage of the Fedeial Governoieut.-Coumota (to) Sun . The negroes. Radicals and Brindle tails all ridicule this opposition to Grant and will do all they can to break it down. Suicides in France. If a i'l euci mau is a success in any thing he undoubte ly is in Buieides He is all the time finding out a new way to put him self out. Tho Freueh woman, when tired of this deceitful world is content to take her departure by means of a pan of charcoal and a cl- se room, but the man must have a more novel and aud exciting death. The ground has been so thoronwhiy Kous o.er' that it is hard now indeed has iong been hard to make ooe, final exit without making it exae'ly as some other wearied one has mac it before There is a way tried, once, it is true, but more novel than any other we know of. A Frenchman loug t ":- unlit of suicide; he was determined uLoo it but bovp to do it cicely and wi'b dart v. lie OTMBER 17. was th j problem. Ho solved it. After a rnonth 6r tw? of exercise be became a fair gymnast, and promisi&g to do most wonderful on i tmri railed feats was engaged at one of the main theatres lhe piace was thronged, for wc ttortals do so like to see' others peril their lives for onr gratification.-While the man Vas on a trapeze : hith up above the heads of the congregated thousands, he fating down by his knees and holding a pistol to his head blew out all the brains ha had. The tbiog was a grand success. W need hardly add the inani mate body descended rcpidly to the pcopKs below, but it is cot reked ih it it sect aty of them after its late owner. A jOTing Swr?s in Paris, who had lived there long enough to become French, has just "Fuicided," or attem pted to suicide, as the uord makers call it, after a . roaactic lashicr. IJe was" a " rodzef ra a 'fur bf shed 'lious The landlord become bankrupt, the furniture was sold, but when the pur chasers come to remove it the Swis bolted his door and swore he would uever leave. He had become derper ately in love with a woman ou the same landing tf the htairs, who?e door was immediately opposite his She was o.d enough tj bo his mother, lie could not bring himself to think he might never see her ugaio, Tbey sent .or the police, who broke open the door and extricated the fellow with his baggage. Two hours afterwards the janitor h:id occasion to go up stair. What was Lis horror to see the Corpse oi the Swiss hanging lrotu the btair bauuiste:c, and just in Irout of the door where his love lives. Examination discovered the rope around his ueck to be the bell rope of her door. How touching that ' The l'olico Commissi oner wjs sent for, who ordered the body to pe earned to the Morgue. It my on the form all uiht. Tiie foK lowing mbru'bg the attendant turned the cock aud let water spray fall on the corp e. This is done to keep the bodies from putreUctiou as long as ; possiulc. The attendant thought he detected a wry lace made by the corpse when the spray first fell. He shut off the water, then turned it on; there was another wry lace. Ho ox u mined the body aod found it to be still warm. The physician came and declared the man to be (still alive, but iu a leihargy tuperiuduced by a eon gestiou ot the braiu, which was caused I Ov the. crpHt. tennion of the vertebral column, which had not peen prokeu by the banging. The doctor added tuat the man would soou awake, and ordered the body to be carried to u house. Iu two hours hj recovered li's senses, after a lethargy of Jor-y eight hours. Mark Twain as Editor-in-Chief. Mark Twain, in his new volume, "Uouh.ug It," fjives his experience as local editor of the Virginia City (Xevadi) Daily Enterprise and incideii tally credits the "leading writer" of a d til f journal in a u-.atmer as rare as it usually is deserved. Iu the c: sc men tioned, M irk had tired of his labor as iocal editor. He ta s : I wmted variety of some kind. It come. Mr. Go dmau went away for a week, and left me the post of chiet editor.

It is easy to scribble ioal rubbish, with the facts all before you; it is eas to clip selec tions fro other papers; it is easy to string outa correspondence from, any locality: but is unspeakable hardship to wiite editorial. Subject ute the troub les the dreary lack of tLem, I mean. Every day it is a drag, drag, drag., think aud weary and suffer all the world is a dull blank, and yet the editorial column must be filled. Only s;ive the editor a subject, and his work is done it :s uo trouble to wr.te it up: but fancy how you would feel if you had to pu t p your brains dry every da) in the week,filty-two wteks in the year. It makes olo low-spirited simply to think of it. lhe matter that each editor of a daily paper in America writes iu the crurse of a year would till from four to eight bulky volumes like this book. Fancy what a iibrary an editor's work would make after twenty or thirty year's service. Y--t people often wouder that D.ckens, Scott, BaUer, Dumas &e., have been able to produce so many books. Ifthe-e authors hal wrought as voluminously as newspaper editors do the result would be something to marvel at in deed. ilow editors can continue this tre mendous labor, this exhausting con sumption of braiofibrc (for their work is creative, aod Dot a mere meci anical laving up of lao s, I ke reporting,) day after day and year alter year is lncom- nrehenmhle. Preachers take two months' holiday in roidsummer.for they find that, to produce two sermon- a week is wearing in the long run. In truth it must be so. nud it is so; and there fore, how an editor can take irom teu to twentv texts aod build upon tbeio Tho Tartoro ov.tlicriicr.

About Bridal Couples. A Bachelor's Remarks on their A pp- ar. ance and JZehacior. The Washington correspondent of tho Cinr-iiiaati Commercial islaeetiom over the bridal couples who flock to the Capital to eujoy their honeymoons, lie says: There must be some undiscovered magnet which brings bo many hnppy pairs to Washington, They floi'risti In such numbers in no other city, hut the secret has bc;u discovered. Vou meet them every where, and at all hours, do, not at all hours, unless you take your breakfast very late. It you o dowu to your breakfast at the hotel, say half-past 10 or 11, you - will pee a perfect school, or flock, or drove of them. There they sit, at the little round tables all over the room, an I i hey look very pretty I mean the brides of course, for the men, great shtepish fellows, are uot worth looks ing at. There they sit, in the proper est' kind of attitude; tfey would not. have you for the world think they wero at that very niomen the happiest girls on earth. Their dress is of t he prop erest kind- a subdued or neutral shad..-, trimmed with velvet and fringe or em broidery ; a daiiify little hat, with a bow or r.b'tK n, a patih ( I velvet, a plume, a shred of lace, and a bright flower trying to hide union a- them al1, even as she is trying to hide the l usht a that comaand go on her round cheek-. The little doves al ways come to break fast iu their hats, and carry their little coats and muff and gloves in their li' hands. This is the style, fair girls, if you have any such thing in view. She may go back to her room ana r?ad over the letters housed to write her all daylong, aod not go out of the hotel at all; but it is the style to go down with hat on and all things lCudy. It is very amusing to watch thps people at the hotel. They ccme to evtry meal breakfast, lunch, dinner aud supper. At breakfast they look very pretty, at lunch so-so, at. dinner they are resplendent, and at supper pale and tired. You see them at their best at dinner. It is there that thev shake out the wrinkles in their new drciSts. Yesterday the pretty lrir?e went to dinner ia black silk and Val enciennes; to-day she wore a Iilf blue silk, long train, tri nuifd with point applique; tMuorrow she will wear ashes oi-rose siik, whitf satin trimming aud fringe; the diy following, if shs stay so lon, she wi I wear a very hand-, some black silk walking su t, and the following morning voj will seo hor aft the early breakfast with her doinuro little traveling fuit on, for she is go ing in the morning train going back to begin her future but whether for good or ill depends largely ou herself.

Not the Longest Case Many of the newspapers referring to the li hbor .e cae -pea'c of it as tho 'o ig est trial on record, and cf the speech of the Attorney 'General in opposition to the c'aim int as the longest speech. As a matter of h s ory thi is not correct. The trial of Varrn II is ttni;s upon art clesof mpeachment for high cr'mes ang misdemean .rs. before the Rr.t sh Parliament, was much long er, and the address of Edmund iiu'ke upon presenting tho articles of im j eichmi-nt. is probably the longest le al argument on record.
