' 1 ho Tribune and itB Editors, (From Fackard's Monthly for Oclobcr.) We walk through the little gate la the counter, turn within the open doorway on oar left, climb a short, narrow flight of stairs and And ourselves in a small room ten by fifteen, furnished with a green carpet, a bed lounge, aa open book rack, a high desk, a writing desk, three arm chairs, a short legged table, and a small marble siok. Mr. Greeley's back Is towards as. He is seated at bis desk. His head is beat over his writing, and his roaad shoulders are Quito nrnmU/>?? ? . , .uuu?. iio ID , scribbling rapidly. A quire of foolscap, | occupying the only clear space on hts desk, is melting rapidly beneath his pen. A glance at biB manuscript re-, veals two dozen knotty figures. You may be sure of a leader on the National Debt to-morrow morning. The desk 1 itself is a heap of confusion. Here is Mr. Greeley's sttaw hat; there 1b his1 handkerchief. In front of him is a I Deck of newspaper clippings, not neatly rolled up, but loosely sprawled over the desk. At his left a rickety pair of scissors catches a hurried nap, and at his right a paste-pot and a half-broken box ol wafers appear to have had a rough and tumble tight. An odd looking paper holder is Just ready to tumble on the floor. An old-fashioned sand-box, looking like a dilapidated hour glass, is hair-hidden under a slashed copy of the Now York World. Mr. Greeley still Btlcks to wafers and sand, instead of using mucilage and blotting-paper. A small drawer, filled with postage stampB and bright steel pena, has crawled out on the desk. Packages of folded missives are tucked In the pigeon holes winking at ub lrotn the back of Iho - * * ??v ucott, auu duuica ui umi-openea letters, mixed with seedy brown enffelopes, flop lazily about the table. Old papers?the Charleston Mcrcury, the New Orleans Republican and Crescent, the St. Louis Democrat and Intelligencer, the Richmond Whiy and Inquirer, the Rocky Mountain News, the Albany Journal,the Philadelphia rost, the Sacramento Union, the London 'limes, the Portland Oregonian, the Free Trader's Journal, the Spectator. the Augusta Chronicle, the Cincinnati Commercial Qnd Gazette, the Chicago Post and Republican, the London Daily tfexvs, the Hawaiian Gazette, theAthenceutn, the Chicago Foal, the Mobile Register, the London Telegraph, the Boston Post, (Henry Wilson carried off the Advertiser), the New York Express, Fost, CommercialMail, und twenty other papers?lay gashed and mangled about his chair, the debris of a liter ary battlefield. A clean towel ba'ngs on ? rack to bis right. A bound copy'of The Tribune Almanac, from 1838 to 1868, swings from a small chain fastened to a staple screwed In the side of his deak, two other bound volumes stand on their feet in frout of his nose, and two more of the same kind are fast asleep on the book ruck in iho corner. Stray numbers of the Almanac peep from every nook. Xbe man who would carry off Greeley's bound pile of almanacs would deserve capital punishment. The Philosopher could belter nfford to lose one of his legs than to lose his almanacs. The room is kept scrupulously clean and neat. A waste-paper basket squats between Mr. Greeley's legs, but one half the torn envelopes and boshy communications flutter to the iloor instead of being tossed into the basket. The table at bis side is covered with a stray copy of the New York Ledger. Packard's Monthly and a dozen other magazines lay thereon. Bere is an iron garden rake wrapped up in an Independent. There hangs a. pair of handcuffs once worn by Old John Browu, and sent Mr. Greeley by an enthusiastic admirer of both Horace and John. A champagne basket, tilled with old scrap-books and pamphlets, occupies one corner. A dirty bust of Lincoln, half hidden in curiy plies oipeper, struggles 10 ueseen on tho top of bis desk. A pile or election tobies, dirty, ragged and torn, clipped from some unknown newspaper, look as if they bad hair a mifld to jump down on tbe "Old Man's" bald bead. A certificate of life uiemb^tsbip in some Tractor Abolition Society, and maps of the World, New York and New Jersey bang on tbe wall. A rare geological specimen of quartz rock, weighing about ten pounds, is ready to roll down a blgb desk to tbe floor on tbe first alarm. Dirty pamphlets are as plenty as cockroaches. Let us look at his office library. Here are 150 volumes. First we see tbe five large volumes of "Tbe Statesman's Manual," then six volumes of tbe"I?ife of Clay." Here are the Uvea of Lincoln, Franklin, Stephen A. Douglas, A. P. Dostie, Memoirs of Margaret Fuller, aud?uo, surely, It cannot be L?-tbo "Lite or Hor ace Oreeley!" "McPberson's Political Manual" aud a volume of "Mrs liemaos' Poems" are bugging each other. Lanman's "Dictionary of Congress" is edging away from Carey's "Social Science." Plato's "Immortality of the Soul" is nip and tuck with tbe "Transactions of tbe American Wool Association." Perry's "Elements or Political Cnnnnmn" la AnnrliniT TVmkpim' "Mn ? tual Friend." A volume of . ibe Speeches of Aloxander H. Stephens is making faces at Henry Wilson's "AntiSlavery Measures in Congress." An odd volume of Washington Irving's "Spanish Papers" is sandwiched between the "Handbook of Cotton Manufacture" and "Seaman's Progress of Nations." A "History of Londonderry" is studying the "Trial of Surrat."? j "Youatt on the Horse" and Helper's "Nojoque" laugh at each other over a "History of the Whig Party." Three "Gospel Liturgies lay next to a halfdozen "Reports on the Conducc of the War.'.' A work on "Botsnical Repons" kisses a copy of "The Federalist." "AUibone's History of Authors" is nearly smothered under a pile of "Census Reports."_ Volumes of Diplomatic Correspondence, State and Con* ! vention Manuals, Agricultural Reports, and scores of books on the National Debt and the Tariff, hold their own on various shelves. Pen, ink, paper, scissors and envelopes are in unfailing demand. The cry, "Mr. Greeley wants writing paper !" creates commotion in the counting room, and Mr. Greeley gets paper quicker than a hungry fisherman could skin an eel. Mr. Greeley can lay Virginia worm fences in ink faster than any other editor in New York city. Houses a fountain pen, a present from some friend. He thinks a great deal of it, but during an experience of three years, has failed to learn the simple principle or suction without gettinglhls month full ot ink, and he generally U8e8 u wun an 0mpiy receiver. He makes a dub at the ink Bottle every twenty seconds, places the third finger and thumb of his left hand on bis paper, and soratches away at bis worm fence like one possessed. He writes marvelonsly fast. Frequently the point of bis pen pricks through bis sheet, for be writes a heavy band, and a snap followe, spreading inky spots over the psper, resembling a wood-cat portraying the sparks from a blacksmith's hammer. Blots like mashed spiders or oroshed huckleberries occasionally intervene, bat the old veteran daahe? them with sand, leaving a swearing compositor to scratch oa the soil and dlR out the words underneath Mr. Greeley's manuscript, when neet for the first time, resembles anintri cale mass of lunatlo hieroglyphics, o: the tracks of a spider BatTering fron delirium tremens. Bat, by those acous tomed to hia writing, a remarkable ex actnesa la observed. The spelling punctuation, accented letters, and capl tallzing are perfect. The old-type-set ters of the office prefer his manuscrip above that of any other editor, for lb simple reason that he writes his articl aa bo wishes It to appear, and rarely ir ever, cats or elasbee a proof-abeel And this punctuality Is, in a urea , measure, a feature of his life. He 1 always on time, and never waits to anybody. He employs no private aecre I tary, and when Jib receives a lette answers It on the Instant. No matte bow trivial the request, the next onl -^ hnnnii of his autographs, If he tbinKS mn answer necessary. He knows we have entered his room, yet he continues his writing. The only sound ;we hear within his Banotam Is the scratch of hfipen. He has the power of concentrating ail the atrength of his mind on the subject of his editorial, and will pay no attention to any question, however important, until he finishes his sentence. If the cry of Fire!" should resound through the building. Greeley would finish his sentence and ring his bell before he wonld leave his room. The sentence complete, he places the forefinger of of his right hand at the end of the word last written, seizes the handle of his pen in his teeth, and looks his tormentor full In the face. It is a frlnr.no -? ~ n??" -? ui1uuj'i auu mo qaeaiioner, intuitively conscious of this fact, repeats bis interrogation. Mr. Greeley divines tbe question before it is finish- ; ed, and answers it pitbly and quickly. The pen ia then snatched from his [ mouth, dexterously dipped into, bis inkstand, and bis lingers again travel across his transverse sheet of foolscap like a "daddy-long legs" caught in a Storm. If his questioner la importunate, and inaiata on wasting bis time, he continues his writing, ne^er looking up, and either answers absent-mindly, or in a low, impatient tone, tinged with a peculiar boyish nervousness. If his visitor is ungentlemanly enough to s^l continue hia teasing importunities, a *torm breaks forth, ana the uncourI sous person will trot ont of the 8ancium with an answer ringing in his ears that should -bring a flush to his cheek. To Mr. Greeley time is more valuable than money or even friendship. When busy, he ia no respecter of persons. President or hod-carrier, general or boot-black, clergyman or expressdriver, authoress or apple-woman?all are treated alike. .Eminent men have lefc bis room under the imoreRHinn thnfc they had been deliberately Blighted, while Horace still slashed away at his Inky pickets, totally unconscious of any neglect.} Jibe popular impression ot Mr. Greeley^ personal appearance seems to be associated with a white hat and a white overcoat, and with one leg of his pantaloons hitched on the top of his bootleg. This is incorrect. He is clean in bis attire?never wears a dirty shirt or a dirty collar, has a straw bat, a thin black /rock coat, a white vest, and a pair of black doeskin pants drawn down over bis boot-tops. Sometimes be wears shoes, and he has been seen with leggings. In muddy weatber bis bootB and pants may bo covered with dirt, but in pleasant daystheyare clean far above the average. The only mark of slovenliness about him centers in bis black silk cravat, which will occa* aionally have a Qght with his collar, and blip out of sight. Sometimes the necktie will hold its own with the collar, but the knot will jump round to the side or bis chin alid give him u remarkable air of absentmindedness. The cause ol this irregularity is his warn 01 bkui id using pics. iney udou Qnd prick bis neck uulil ho is ?lad to droplhetn. Mr. Greoley is live feet leu und abalf Inches in height, and well proportioned. Lie is tifty-seven years old. He ia partly bald, bus white(oot gray) hair, a light complexion, small, sunken blue eyes, a well-bhaped mouth, and regular features. A white beard runs ovor bis throat and flanks his chlu, likotiny cheveaux defriac. His bands are small, and solt as those of a woman. His teelb are while and tegular, and in talking are always observable. His feet are largo aud ill-shaped. You can hardly say that he walks. He shuffles. Tbo head makes a motion forward, tLebody follows it, as if swung ou a pair of binges at the hips; the legs their move, and the feet straggle out as if undecided whether to walk or keep still. The fact of the business is, Horace never bad tfme to Jearn to walk. He weighs u man for what be is worth, and not what he appears to be worth. "Mr. Greeley, my friend, Mr. , who has called to pay his respects." Down goes the foretinger on bis manuscript. The paper-bolder quivering on the edge of his desk drops on the floor. You catcb the glow or his smiling fao?, a glance of bis small blue eyes, near his shrill treble voice roll off a fnm rvl no cunt ?vnrrta n nil ira r? rtanon H the Btairs to the counting room, leaving him to buck away at blighting humau wrongs and follies in his own peculiar manner. Once again in the counting room. It requires rare business ability and tact to run the publishing department of such a concern as this. The disbursements frequently reach $10,000 a day, and have exceeded $1,000,000 a year. There is paper to buy, advertisements are to be strewn over the country newspapers, two hundred and fifty editors, reporters, compositors, clerks, wrapper writers, pressmen, stereotypera, folders and carrieis are to be paid weekly, type and presses are to be purchased, contracts are to be made, and five hundred business ramifications to be closely watched. Sam. Sinclair isjhe lever which keeps all these things in perpetual motion. We find him In a little box fenced off in one corner of the counting room. He has a shrewd blue eye, quietly and pleasantly toned, long, heavy, curling chestnut hair, and a handsome chestnut beard and inouslHche, which he never cuts, lie takes your measure on the instant. lie is caretul and circumspect. Tho slouched black hat hides a head that understands its business. He tears open a note from the foreman of tho press room, inform ing him lhat "the forms came down late this morning, and a portion of the mails was missed by this tardiness.*'' A letter is written and sent to Mr. Young, the managing editor, immediately. This Sinclair Is emphatically a man of business. When printing paper is down be buys an immense stock; when paper ia up,paper manufacturers get none of the Tribune's money. When business is dull and money la scarce, Sinclair advertises the Tribune extensively through the country press, and sowb his posters, headed "Now is the time to subscribe!" throughout every State in the Union. During the past winter thero was hardly a post office in the United States but what was adorned with a colored Tribune poster. When business is brisk and money is plenty the Tribune eats its way into the affections of the people on its own merits without advertising. Mr. Greeley writes the most ot the Tribune advertisements, and especially those ringing double-leaded introductions to | 'The Terms of the Tribuneappearing on the editorial page. Such.sentences us "The Combat Deepens!" or "Friends " 1 ? hnmonlfcl" nnnna 0*1 UI riecuoui auu UUUJ?U.V. advertising argument in Mr. Greeley's beat vein. Sinclair Is, and should be, the best posted newspaper publisher in America. He knows the newspaper ropea. Entering the office a quarter ot a century ago, a book-keeper, cashier, and subscription "clerk, at a salary of nine dollars per week, he has plodded his way through faithful industry and unceasing vigilance to fortune. The clerk is now the largest stockholder in the TYibune, and his outside wealth would almost make him a millionaire. And still he is the self-same, bardworking clerk, with merely the title of publisher, quietly turning the Tribune grindstone, and. profiting by the suggestions of reporters or pressmen. He never seems to feel his oats a bit, but treats the veriest menial about the office with unassuming affability. This makes him the most popular man about thelestablisbment. Tbeproperty of the TYibune is divided into one hundred shares, originally valued at $1,000 per share, but they are now worth |6t600 each. There are twenty-four stockholders In number, nearly all of them being employed on the paper. It has been a rule of the Editor and Publisher to part with stock to valuable men who come to the Tribune td stay,. The foremen In each of the mechanical departments hive been stockholders for many years. Mr. Sin* nioii- Hnd Mr. Greeley own larger inter eats than any other two. And now for the editorial rooms.

Said an old darkey, when Sherman was moving Southward, "I reckon he 1 will win. They always whip him, they say, but still he keepB a comn' and oomin'." It is pretty much so with these Democratic gains. They have gained ' every year since the Republican party ' was born, and still it'*keep?a cominV Bye and bye, no doubt, the rebels will "get us just where they want us," much as they UBed to do with Grant and Sherman. And then, probably, they will surrender at discietion! The Bridgeport, Connecticut, %tand? ai d says that if the Democrats propose to select any year they pleaae as a basis upon which to compute gains in Maine, it proposes to do likewise. It adds: "We find that President Polk's majority in Maine, in 1847, was 11,311. This the Republicans wiped^out at the late V.svituu, nuu novo m BUUIIIUU B majority now stated at about 23,000.

A dressing -which ,?frjlaV, is at once agreeable, Hp healthy, and effectual for preserving the mnair. J acted or gray hair is toon restored to iu original color wlh th? gloss and freshness of youth. Thin hair is thickened. -falling -hair?eheeked, and baldness often, though- not always, cured by its use. Nothing can restore tho hair where the follicles are destroyed, or the glands atrophied and decayed. But such 13 remain can be ^saved for usefulness by this application.* Instead of fouling tho liair with a pasty sediment. it will keep it dean and vigorous. Its occasional nsc will prevent tho hair from turning gray or falling off, and consequently prevent baldness. Free from those dcletorious substances which make some preparations dangerous and _ injurious to tho hair, the Vigor cau only benefit but not harm it. If wauteu merely for a HAIR DRESSING, nothing else can bo found so desirable. Containing neither oil nor dye, it does not soil white cambric, and yet lasts long on the hair, giving it a rich glossy lustre and a grateful perfume. Prepared by Dr. J. C.

Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, For Diseases of the Throat and Iiongs, such as Coughs, Colds, WHooping Cough, Bronchitis, Asthma, and Consumption. Probablv never "before in tho whole history of znetKrinc, has anything won BO widely and so deeply upon the confidence of mankind, as thL? exccLlout rcmedv for pulmonary complaints. Through a long series'or years, and among most of the races ot "inon it has risen higher ana higher in thoir estimation, as it has becomo better known. Its uniform character and power to' cure the various affectum* or the lungs and throat, have mads it known wareliable protector against them. While adapted to milder form* of disease and to young children, it is ut the same time the most effectual remedy that cau be given for incipient consumption, and the dangerous affections or the throat and lungs. As a pro- . vision against sudden attacks of Croup, it should be kept on hand In cverv family, and indeed as all are sometimes subject to eolds and coughs, all should be urovided with this antidote for them. Although settled Consumption in thought iucurable, still great numbers ot cases where the duca-e bcciuol fettled. have been completely cared, and the patient restored to sound health by the Cherry J'rctoral. So complcto is Its maatcry ovcr the disorders of the Luun and Throat, that the moM obstinate of them yield to it. When nettling else could reach them, under tho Cherry Pectoral they subside and disappear. singern and 1'ublie Speakers find great protcctiou from it. Asthma is always relieved and often wholly cured by it. Itronehitis is generally cured by taking the Cherry Veetoral in small and fYequcnt doses. So generally arc its virtue* known that wo ueed not publish tho certificates of them hare, or do more thau assure the public that its qualities are ftilly maintained. Ayer's Ague Cure, For Fever and Ague. Intermittent Fever. Chill Fever. Remittent Fever, Dumb Ague, Periodical or Bilious Fever, &c.. and indeed all tho affection* which anso from malarious, marsh, or miasmatic poisons. As Its name Implies.
