Chicago, Aug. 80.— Tlie Tribune's Wash- j \ TJNITEL STATES. ington special says Hon. Eliliu li.

Still while all this is true lie adds that it it should happen at any time that the Republican party should need him for any pm pose lie would not fail to respond. The Tribune in an editorial founded on this iufor niation and on pr e v ious a u thenticated state incuts by Rear Admiral Ammen declaring. substantially the same Thing and a dinning that General Grant has expressed a willing ness to accept the the presidency of the Inter Ocean Canal Co., says this decision of Gen. Grant not to re-enter public life is not surpris ing. He is now the "Great Undefeated." A campaign for a third term might hand his name down lo posterity as tlie " Great De feated." It, is no reflection upon his past services to say that this positive declination relieves tlie next presidential campaign <>f a serious embarrassment. His name was a dis turbing element and was destined to produce party discord and bis withdrawal leaves a clear fluid for the most promising candidate.

Walker, Superintendent of the Census, is hard at work, surrounded by a dozen or more cletks, making t reparations for l iking the census of 1880. '.'he census year began on the 1st of July last, and will end on the 30t.li of June next, ami ibis year will ne devoted to preparation, until June 1st next, when the actual work of enumerating tlie number of inhabitants will commence. Professor Walker wants as accurate a photograph of the coun try's population on that dav as can be ob tained, and tlie work of rite enumerators will lie as nearly simultaneous as possible, so that nobody «liai I escape being counted as a citi zen of. this glorious Republic. In tlie cities, where the people are moving, the men will work rapidly, and the districts w ill lie made so small that they may be completed in a very few days, but in tiie country, where the population is regular in its movements, two or three weeks will be allowed to a district. When Congress meets in September the President will submit to the Senate a list of !50 supervisors of tiie census, who are to be chosen by Professor Walker for their especial fitness, and who are to have charge of tlie 150 districts into which tlie United States are to be divided. New York is to have eleven of the 150; Pennsylvania, ten ; Old" and Illinois eight each. Professor Walker is now engaged in dividing the country in this way, and is in com ni ii ideation with Governors of Stqtes, Congressmen, Mayors of cities, and others, with a view if obtaining information. As soon as the district boundaries are settled up on, tiie work ot selecting tlie supervisors will commence, which will lié one of importance, as tlie duties, to he performed properly, will require not. only a man ot executive ability, but one who has general information, per sonal acquaintance with the manufacturing j anil productions of bis section, and familiar ity with statistics. The selection of enumer ators will then be taken up, and men be ap pointed to look alter the particular industries who are most familiar with those industries. Experts will ho obtained as far as possible. Pamphlets of instructions to tlie enumerators are now being prepared, so as to be ready at the time of the appointment of tlie supervis ors. F. II. Wines, of the Illinois State Board of Charities, will have charge of tlie inquiries respecting charitable and reformatory insti tutions. Some prominent physician will be selected to direct the investigation into mor tality and hygienic statistics. And tlie inqui ries into agriculture and manufacture will be conducted by experts in these subjects. Large mnnheis of applications are coming in for employment, but Professor Walker says lie shall seek men lbr these positions» anil not regard applications in any way what ever. New York.

San Francisco, Sept. 2. —Geo.

Has- j kell approached tlie counter and enquired for j Schwartz and as the latter came forward Haskell said: "Yon called me a son of a - last night; will you retract it?" Schwartz denied tlie statement, roughly, when Ha-kell drew a pistol and Hied one -hut which, missed.

Lon'don, Sept. 2. —The Times in reviewing tlie fishery question says: "The opinion expressed in the United States that tlie whole question should he settled between tlie State Department and the Foreign Office without tlie North American Colonies having a voice ill tlie matter, betokens misapprehensions of tlie polity of the British Empire which ae eprqs to its self-governing colonies freedom of lèqlion which is limited only by Imperial considerations, it is somewhat surprising that tiie United States, which owe their ex istence as a nation to I lie v ry principle that a colony must have a voice in any negotia tions which affect its interests, should not understand the same principle when asserted on behalf of Canada, it looks as it the fishing privileges granted by Um treaty of Washington were of greater value than tli • people of the United Slates have been liithe - to willing to allow. It is satisfactory to find overtime lit at Washington repudi ates all intention of asking any reconsidera tion of the Halifax award on the grounds of subsequent ill treatment of fishermen."

It is a very remarkable fact that one of the four pre-eminent generals of all time should have nearly reached middle age before lie ever commanded an army, or even witnessed a régulai - battle. Alexander, Hannibal, and Napoleon were students of war 1 rout childhood, and were prominent actors and leaders in it while still mere youths. But Julius Ccesar, their equal uud sole equal in military ability and fame, saw only some trifling combats in his early days, and then waited for iiis thirty-ninth year before lie beaded legions in Spain, ami for iiis forty-third year before lie commenced iiis astonishing career in Gaul. To many Ro mans of that day it must iiave been a great surprise to learn Unit this lated scholar in a most difficult art had gained decisive victories over tlie dashing Lusitauiaiis and the stubborn Helvetians. It is still a marvel. Very few cases at all like it are recorded in history. Cromwell, indeed, w as forty-three years old when lie indeed, w as forty-three years old when lie became a soldier; and Marlborough was fifty two w lieu lie first commanded a large army. But Cromwell was three years in growing up to leadership, and never once had to w restle with areally able captain; while Marlbor ough was aided in Iiis opening campaigns bv tlie abundant experience and brilliant talents of Prince Eugene. Here, moreover, our list of parallels with Ctesar in this particular must end. All other eminent generals have seen much military service in early life, and the majority of tlie most eminent have come early lo command. Yet here is a novice in watfare, well on toward uupliable and cautions middle age, wlio exhibits every military quality, llow could it lie so? Of course he had drawn some soldierly education, both moral and in-j tellccluul, from tin* circumstances ot Iiis time and race. Tlie human breed of which he sprang w s eminently martial in history and character. Nearly every young Roman felt bouiid to lie more or less a soldier, and nearly every young gentU-in;.n of Rome sought to fit himself tor an officer. < icsar, like Lu. ui lus, had no doubt studied tlie campaigns of great eonon imlets, amt liait also, no doubt, learned something from Iiis intimacy with military leaders. But for all 'bat, w lieu be entered upon Ins life as a general lie was lit tle more Ilian a civilian. Pillow at Fort Dimelson and Butler at Furl Fisher laid seen at least as much of war as the greatest of Romans when lie set. forth n> arrest the Hel vetic avalanche.
