R. E. FISK, - - Editor. THURSDAY, JULY 1, 1880. REPUBLICAN NATIONAL NOMINATIONS—1880. FOR PRESIDENT. JAMES A. GARFIELD, OF OHIO. FOR VICE PRESIDENT. CHESTER A. ARTHUR, OF NEW YORK. (■ENT. WINFIELD SCOTT HANCOCK. At the second ballot at 11 o'clock this morning, by a stampede of the delegates which left Mr. Tilden, 6$ votes, Mr. Bayard, 113, Mr. Thurman, 50, and the other states men equally behind in the race, General Hancock, a man wholly without experience in civil affairs, was nominated as the Demo cratic candidate for the Presidency. Gen. Hancock is wholly unfamiliar with the duties of civil life or with executive duties, if we except the fact that it was he who hung Mrs. Surratt, and the assassins of Mr. Lin coln. We do not recall his backing as a can didate, except, we believe Louisiana instruct ed her delegates for him. When Gen. Grant was beaten at Chicago, such men as Sey mour and Tilden, concluding that the Re publican candidate would be elected, with drew from the controversy, and it is left for Gen. Hancock tç wear for a time as did Mc Clellan in 1804, tho honors of a single politi cal campaign. The truth is the people have wearied of Presidents whose experience and merit are confined to military affairs. No man could present stronger claims of this charac ter than did Gen. Grant, but for a states man's duties, a statesman's study and ex perience are required. Nothing better illus trates the capacity of the Democrats to blun der than this nomination. Of the entire list Mr. Tilden stood pre-eminently strong in his party. He had a great State which was doubtful behind him, and he had civic abili ty of a high order. But whether strong or weak, a single duty, solemn and imperative, remained to the Democracy, and that was to nominate him. If, a9 they have for three years asserted and re-asserted, he was fairly elected President in 1876, it was the duty of the Democrats, and the Republicans, too, for that matter, to see that he was elected and in stalled. Setting him aside is a confession that this claim of "fraud" is, and has been, a pretense and a sham, used in the weak hope that some could believe it and that it would excite pity and sympathy. If it had been true, the dictate of duty and the unerring instinct of the people would have been to nominate him, and if beaten to go down with the sky radiant with Tilden banners, and to nominate him next time, and again and again until the sober sense of the people righted the flagrant wrong. Such a course would have been becoming, would have been courageous, would have been a solemn and lofty duty, and if the story were true , it would assuredly have won. That it is notoriously untrue the nomination of Gen. Hancock is an open, honest, unambiguous confession. Mr. Bayard, too, has been pretermitted. He comes of a long line of illustrious ances try—next to the Adams family—the most illustrious in our annals. His own name is worthy to stand in the line of statesmen given the country by little Delaware. With a civic history which tells what manner of man he is, he counts for nothing beside the record of Hancock, and the country is invi ted by the. Cincinnati Convention to embark on a four years' voyage of experiment, trust ing to luck rather than trained statesmanship, to military traditions and methods rather than civic renown, to inexperience instead of a wide observation and a thorough knowledge of all the complex questions which our sys tem of government involves. Thurman, Hendricks, Field, Davis and others, men with a history and with opinions of governmental policies, are all pushed aside and a man nominated who, so far as the pub lic knows, has his opinions now to make, or what is more likely, to take some already made for him. Will some enthusiastic Han cock man tell us how he stands on the civil service, on the complex questions of finance, on any and all the great questions which con cern our civil administration, and tell us fur ther from what source they get their informa tion and to whom that source is accessible It were idle to deny General Hancock great merit in his chosen profession. That merit is in the keeping of the Republican party, and it will not permit it to be impugned. As it has through its own heated controversy, just closed, defended and protected General Grant's soldiery nobility, so it will Hancock's, •but the stern logic of events, as well as the philosophy of history, forbids us to be de luded by such abilities into the weak belief that it is the only essential knowledge or ex perience required for the high and solemn duties of civil and State affairs. General Hancock was born in Montgomery county, Pennsylvania, February 14, 1834, and is seven years older than General Gar field, and graduated at West Point in the class of 1844. He served in the war with Mexico, and in Florida in 1855 against the so ! to old in so it in its has he party dates to dates cipate this states Demo Gen. duties we Mrs. Lin can Grant Sey Re with for Mc have and man ex illus blun in was or to of for in a and to and the a a it is of a Seminole Indians. In 1861 he was promoted by Mr. Lincoln from a Captain to the rank of a Brigadier General, and served under General Franklin in McClellan's Peninsular campaign, greatly distinguishing himself at Williamsburg and elsewhere. He was much commended for brilliant service pt 8outh Mountain, Antietam, and commanded a divis ion of Sumner's corps at Fredericksburg and Chancellorville. in June, 1863, he was assigned to the com mand of the second army corps, and was at Gettysburg, where he did valiant service and was severely wounded. He was appointed Major General of Volunteers November 29, 1863. His command did good service in the battles of the Wilderness, Spottsylvania, North Anna, Cold Harbor and around Peters burg. He also fought bravely at Deep Bot tom, Reams Station and elsewhere in Vir ginia during the closing battles of the rebel lion. He was appointed by President John son, Major General, July 26, 1866. His life has been spent in military labors, and his re nown, which is not inconsiderable, has been wholly and fairly won on the battle field. He commanded the Department of Dakota in 1870-4, where he was an efficient officer. He visited Helena and was the object of much attention from our people in July, 1869. Gen erals ,-Holabird and Baird, of his military staff, accompanied him, and a banquet and reception were tendered him by our citizens. The moral which all Americans will draw from the political events of the month, will be make a pilgrimage to Montana. Our next President possesses that one supreme qualifi cation, whether his name be Garfield or Han cock. significance of the nomination. In some respects we fec-1 a satisfaction over the Democratic nominations and must con sider them exceptionally good. But when we come to inquire why Hancock is a good nom inee, there is really nothing to be said for him except that he is a good soldier and an able commander. He has been a soldier all his life, is a soldier to-day, and when you take away from him his military record what is left? Enthusiastic friends may claim him for a statesman, but as every one must know 7 we have hundreds, and thousands, and hun dreds of thousands in the rank and file of both parties who know more of statesmanship than Hancock ever gave indications of pos sessing. He has the negative advantage of having no public political record to criticise. His public utterances, whether by word of mouth or through the pen and press, are so few that he is not in much danger of being confronted by many unwelcome ghosts of follies of this class, that have proved to so many a torment and destruction. Turning to his military record, it was not much before the civil war, and during that war he won all his laurels fighting for a cause which nine-tenths of those who nominated and expect to vote for him were fighting against. We will suppose that General Han cock understood and appreciated the merits of that great controversy, and was not merely a soldier of fortune, indifferent to the princi ples involved in that most eventful and mo mentous war ever fr light on this earth. He must have believed in the principle of na tionality as opposed to that of States rights and a loose confederation during good pleas ure and convenience. He was not a merce nary fighting for pay, but, as we must believe, chose his side because it was the cause of jus tice, right, truth, freedom. How comes it, then, that this brave Union General stands to day at the head of the Confederate Briga diers ! Has be gone to them or have they come to him ? The solid South would not admit that Hancock was any braver than those who championed the lost cause. He is chosen, then, not because of his bravery and skill, but because these qualities were success fully devoted to preserye the cause they sought to overthrow. If this view is correct and the Democracy has become so thoroughly converted from tüe errors of their old ways that they cannot otherwise typify and express this change of heart except oy choosiDg for a leader a staunch and conspicuous Union General, the country is to be congratulated and everybody in it. It is a greater victory than any won in arms and during the war. The Presidency itself is very little by the side of the achievement and glory already won. If this were the first occasion of the kind we should not doubt the sincerity of this con version, but as we look back a lew years we discover that the same thing has been tried before. In 1864 it was Gen. McClellan ; then four years later, finding the Union and mili tary bait was not attractive to the voter, they went back to their own fold and took Sey mour. But the popular verdict was so deci sive against them that the next time they took Horace Greeley, who had said more severe things against the Democrats than any man in the country, an original abolitionist, an ex treme Republican whom Lincoln could not satisfy, a life-long advocate of a protective tariff ; in fine the most conspicuQus opponent of every distinctive Democratic doctrine in the whole country. Even this extreme bid for power availed nothing, so the next time they swing bad to their old creed and take Tilden, the reform Democrat. It will be seen that it was the turn this time to select a Union man, and try to eke out a majority by putting up a Union General—one who has a better military record than McClellan and not so much of a political record as Greeley. It ! shows considerable shrewdness in attempting to escape the most prominent of past mis takes, but after all it is the old game a little modified. It is an attempt to engraft on the old Democratic stock the popularity of the Union cause. There is too much intelligence in the American people to be deceived by such transparent devices. It is only a revised edition of the old fable of the ass masque rading in the skin of the lion. How much consistency is there for a party so fearful of the army that it will not support it in strength sufficient to protect the fron tiers, and who are afraid of having a soldier in the country on election days, taking for its champion one who is nothing else than a soldier ! It wont work. Those who admire Hancock for his brilliant record as a Union soldier will after all prefer to vote for one who has always voted on the same side for which he fought. How does it happen, too, that a party that has been cheek by jowl with the Greenbacker8 for the past eight years has chosen two hard money men for their candi dates ? The inconsistencies are too apparent to deceive. Whatever is good in the candi dates is bad for Democracy. We may anti cipate the same result as followed the nomi nations of McClellan and Horace Greeley. ed PROCEEDINGS of the national DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION. Secoud Day—Afternoon Se&Hion. Cincinnati, June 23—It was 1:45 when Stevenson arrived and was presented to the convention as its president. Hoadley, in handing him the gavel as a symbol of author ity. said it could fall into no worthier hands. He accepted the chair with a high appreci ation of the honor and responsibility of the trust confided to him. He proceeded at some length to extol the Democratic party The thank9 of the convention were tender ed to the temporary chairman for the able and impartial discharge of his duties, which Hoadley briefly acknowledged. Breckenridge, of Kentucky moved that, a9 the committee on resolutions were not ready to report, the convention proceed with the business of the nominations. B-of Maryland moved a recess, which was voted down by a great majority. Breckenridge modified his motion so as to provide for a call of the roll of States for the presentation of candidates, and that each del egate may have ten minutes in which to pre sent his candidate. The motion to proceed to the call of States, as moved by Breckenridge wa9 adopted, and the roll of States was called accordingly for nominations. When California was called, McElrath, of its delegation took the platform, saying it was the high principle of this convention to name the next President of the United States, After some further remarks as to the purpose and policy of the Democratic party, he said he desired to present the name of one of her own sons, born in New England and devel oped in California, Stephen J. Field, who was appointed as a Democrat during the throes of the rebellion. He held the commis slon of Abraham Lincoln as an evidence of his loyalty to the Union. If nominated, he would sweep Calforriia like the winds which sweep through her Golden Gate. lie was a man without fear and without reproach, the very embodiment of the Democratic faith. Brown, of Colorado, seconded the nomi nation ot Field, but could not be heard, and was interrupted by cries of "Time, time. Let the secretary read it," until lie withdrew. The call of Delaware was greeted with tu multuous applause. George Gray, of that State, presented the name of Thomas Francis Bayard. Delaware was small in numbers, but was proud of her history and her position in the sisterhood of States. She was here to day to do her best in behalf of the common cause. Who will lead the best in the struggles for a constitutional government and popular rights they were here to-day to decide. [Cries of "Bayard, Bayard !"] When the speaker mentioned the full name of Thomas F. Bay ard, it was hailed w ith a spontaneous burst of applause. He "was no novice, but a man of experience and statesmanship. His name and record were known wherever our flag floated or the English tongue is spoken. With a private character as spotless as snow, a judgment clear as sunlight, as keen as a flash ing sabre and as honest, the people all hnow him, and need not be told who and what he is. In whom more than he will the business interests of the country find more trust ? Who better than he will truly represent the Demo cratic party, or give a higher direction to its aspirations, than he whose name i9 the very synonym of opposition to corruption in every form ? Who has contributed more to the present commanding strength of the Demo cratic party? Do not tell U9 who admire and honor him that he is unavailable. Tell us that he is not too good a man to command the suffrages of the Democratic party. Tell us that, a brave party i9 to be led by a brave man, who will never falter in any emergency. His nomination will be the presage of victory from the Gulf to the ocean. When Illinois was called, Tom. Marshall, after a somewhat tiresome general political speech, in which he wa9 interrupted by im patient calls of "time" and confusion, said the American people now demand as their leader a man worthy of the cause ; one who is a legislator, and finanally ©n behalf of unani mous Illinois, he named the gallant soldier, Wm. F. MorrisoD, of Illinois, The call for Indiana was the signal for the most enthusiastic cheering outside of the del egates' seats, which was renewed wildly as the banner of Thomas A. Hendricks was waved from the rear of the platform. Voorhees, of Indiana, desired to present the name of a distinguished citizen of In diana who was fit to be President. After a complimentary allusion to all the candidates already presented, all of whom he knew were worthy of every honor, he said there wa9 none, however, with more commendation in the works of his life than attached to Thomas A. Hendricks. Indiana had for twenty years been an important battle ground of the Dem ocratic party, and it had never faltered under Hendricks in the front. There were no di vided councils in Indiana ; there was no treachery there. They were unanimous and cordial in their presentation of the gentleman whom he had named. He was worthy of all support, and his administration, if nominated and elected, would be as pore as his adminis tration in every station he had filled in the past. To the South who had been more faith ful? To the North who has-been truer? In diana nailed his colors to the mast and would stand by them and go down with them in honor, if need be, but if Indiana's hopes were realized here it would be the prestige of a great victory. When Massachusetts was called Saltonstall took the platform to second the nomination of Bayard. They all desired a candidate who would elevate the station to which he would be called, and who would honor his office more than he would be honored by it. Such a man was Bayard. His nomination would excite throughout the land the greatest en thusiasm and attract hosts who have never heretofore voted the Democratic ticket. No act of his could be pointed at which admits of doubtful construction. In such a nomina tion the country would find relief. He had the courage to act according to his sense of right. The country was weary of merely available men. They wanted the best man, and the best would be the most available. Without a blot on his life, public or private ; like his great prototype, without fear and without reproach, he was a most fit candidate for President of the United States. New York being called, voices in the gal lery called "Tilden, Tilden !" and were greet with hisses. When Ohio was called McSweeney, of that State, took the platform and read a speech, in which he said that the Democrats of Ohio, in 8tate convention, with absolute unanimity bad determined to present the name of A. G. Thurman. He would forbear eulogy, for that need not be grateful to the man whose name he presented, nor wnnW he consume to the ing the ety the and and the and of and him the now Call ayes a rison, 8; and and the and Few only the organ with tions. at lor street. view. in the of given time in reciting a useless biography. All of knew his public life and services. Nevtrthe less he proceeded with an eulogistic reference to Thurman's record. The times demand a ticket that shall be clear, one around which no dirty scandals cling; aman whose name will be of itself the platform. Such a man was Thnrman. As all well knew, he had fought the good fight. H* has kept the faith Under him the rights of all, rich and poor capital and labor, would be protected, and the rights of sections also carefully preserved He denied that Ohio was a Republican State and argued that Garfield's nomination was an admission by the Chicago Convention that Ohio was not a Republican State. They had already a son of Ohio at Washington in Til den's chair, and yet they took another. The Speaker continued at considerable length with great rapidity and much humor, and was honored at his close with a hearty round of applause When Pennsylvania was called its chair man said that they had no candidate to pre sent, but one of their delegates desired to pre sent a name. Dan. Dougherty, of Philadelphia, then took the platform as he said to nominate one whose name would reconcile all factions and carry Pennsylvania, Indiana, Connecticut New Jersey, New York and Ohio. He pro posed the name ot a soldier whose name was as stainless as his sword—Winfield Scott Han cock. Thi9 gave occasion for the wildest burst of applause that had been witnessed either on the floor or in the galleries, many of the delegates rising to their feet. He said that if elected hie would take his seat. [Great applause.] When South Carolina was called, Wade Hampton rose and was greeted with a tre menduous burst of applause. He went for ward on crutches and ascended the platform When order was restored, Hampton said : South Carolina had no preference, no candi date recognizing the enthusiasm with whieh Hancock's name had been received. He would say that the South would feel safe wjtb Hancock, for they had been under him when he wa 9 in power, and appreciate the ability of Thurman and the fitness of all the candidates who had been named. But South Carolina favored Bayard, because they believpd his the strongest name before the convention. The chairman of the Texas delegation stated that it was her desire to second the nomination of Hancock. Hubbard, of Texas, took the platform, as he said, to second the nomination of the soldier statesman Hancock He proceeded to extol Hancock's conduct in the South when in military command there after the war had closed, when he said the war was over and the constitution revived, and when he ordered the doors of the bastile to be opened and their inmates set free. He urged the good policy of nominating Hancock who, besides being eminently worthy of Democratic support, would unite the party, challenge the approval of the whole country and bring out the votes, and that was what they wanted, in God's name, whether of Dem ocrats, Republicans, or whoever else Stringfellow, of Virginia, took the plat form to second the nomination of Field. The confusion was too great to permit much of the speaker's remarks to be heard, nobody appearing to be listening and everybody talk ing with everybody else and no attempt to preserve order. Daniels, of Virginia, followed. He said the convention was embarrassed by the vari ety and brilliancy of names from which to choose their nominees. Complimenting all whose names had been presented, he still be lieved that the strongest nomination that could be made here would be that of Han cock, [great applause] not of Pennsylvania only, but of the whole United States. [Ap plause.] He was the first after the war to salute with his stainless sword the majesty of civil law. He combatted the argument that the country w as tired of the rule of the camp and ODposed to soldier candidates, citing the fact that Washington himself was the typical soldier, and yet the Civil Magistrate of this country without a peer. [Applause.] Han cock's nomination would mean instantaneous and instant aggression. It would say to all the land "We move on the enemy's works to-morrow. [Applause.] Nominate Hancock and they would hear the music of the cheers of the boys who wore the "Blue" minglign with those who wore the "Gray. " [Applause.] Goode, of Virginia, next took the platform and supported Thurman's nomination. Under him there would be no North, South, East or West, but one Union. [Cries of "Time, time!" in the face of which Goode closed.] The chair then announced the names that were placed in nomination for President of the United States. The names of Hendricks, Thurman and Hancock each received con siderable applause. Breckenridge moved that the convention now proceed to ballot, and urged the impor tance of proceeding with the business and getting through with it. Hoadley moved that the convention ad journ until to-morrow. [Great cries of "No." Call the roll."] A call of the roll resulted in ayes 317$ to noes 395$, so the motion to ad journ was lost. Hagget moved to proceed immediately with a ballot for the nominee for President of the United States. The roll was called and re sulted as follows : Official.—Field, 65; Bayard, 163$; Mor rison, 62; Hendricks, 49$; Thurman, 68$; Hancock, 171; Payne, 85; McDonald, 3; Loveland, 5 ; Seymour 8 ; McClellan 2 ; Jewett, 1 ; English, 1 ; Randall, 5; Lathrop, 8; Tilden, 38; Parker, 1 ; Black, 1. Breckenridge moved to adjourn until 10 o'clock to-morrow. Adopted, and at 6:40 the convention adjourned. Third Day. Cincinnati, June 24.— The sky is overcast and the temperature is hot and sultry. The doorkeepers are takiDg up all the platform and reporters' tickets. This indicates that the convention will nominate the candidates and finish business during to-day's session. Few delegates are yet seated and they are coming in very slowly. The galleries are only partly filled. President Stevenson arrived at 10:25, bat delegates' seats are only half filled. The organ and military bands occupy the audience with many admirably rendered musical selec tions. The chair called the convention to order 10:35. Prayer was offered again by Rev. Dr. Tay of the Methodist Episcopal church South street. He prayed for that unanimity and harmony in the convention so needful to ac complish the patriotic end which it had in view. Peckham (N. Y.) rose to make a statement behalf of the New York delegation, that delegation heard with great emotion cries "platform," and he took the desk. The delegation heard with great emotion the votes given yesterday for that honored statesman New York, 8. J. Tilden. [Great applause.j of All the ed but the the the was He until said man they ous place 11 ; Eq (The chair rebuked the interference with the proceedings by outsiders, and promised that he would ask the convention to preserve order at any and all hazards.) Peckham re sumed : By telegraph he had received a let ter from Tilden which renounced himself as a candidate for the nomination. Knowing him to be honest in purpose and action they accept his letter as a renunciation of all claim as a candidate. He now presented the letter for such action as the convention desired, but the delegation have this morning agreed upon another candidate, and he named Speaker Randall. [Applause.] The chair asked if the convention would have Tilden's letter read. [Cries of "yes" and "no," but on a viva voce vote it was de cided "no." The roll was then called for a ballot for President, as follows : Alabama-Hancock, 11; Bayard, 5; Field, 4 Arkansas— Field, 12. California—Field, 5; Hancock, 5; Hen dricks, 1; Absent, 1. Colorado--Field, 6. Connecticut—Bayard, 1; English, 11. Delaware—Bayard, 6. Florida—Bayard, 8. Georgia—Hancock, 7; Field, 10; Bayard, 5. Illinois—Hancock, 42. [Immense cheers ] Indiana—Hendricks, 30.

Oregon—Field, 6. Pennsylvania—Passed. Rhode Island—Hancock, 6; Randall, 1; English, 1. South Carolina—Bayard, 14. Tennessee—Field, 2; Bayard, 8; Hancock. 14. [Cheers.] Texas— Bayard, 5; Hancock, 11. [Cheers ] Vermont—Hancock, 10. Virginia—Passed. West Virginia—Thurman, 2; Hancock, 7; Bayard, 1. Wisconsin—Bayard, 2; Thurman, 1; Field, 1; English, 1; Hancock, 10. [Cheers.] New Jersey was again called and voted Bayard, 4; Parker, 2; Jewett, 1; Hancock, 7; [Cheers.] Randall, 4. [Cheers] Ohio being called, Hall stated that in obe dience to instructions they cast 42 votes for Thurman. Another Ohio delegate denied his right to announce the vote, and said that the delega tion was now consulting as to how Ohio should vote. [Cheers.] Pennsylvania—Bayard, 1; Randall, 26; [Cheers and hisses.] Hancock, 31. [Great cheers.] Virginia—Hancock, 7; Bayard, 8; Field, 7. Ohio was again called and gave 44 for Thurman. Pennsylvania corrected her vote—Randall, 25: Hancock, 32. Before the official vote was announced, Wisconsin asked permission to change its vote. [Cries of "agreed" and some "noes."] Somebody raised the question of order, that the vote could not be changed. The conven tion agreed to it and Wisconsin cast 20 votes for Hancock. [Great cheers.] There was now a scene of great confusion. New Jersey changed to Hancock 16. [Immense cheering long continued, and great confusion, which the chair vainly tried for several minutes to suppress.] The chairman of the Pennsylva nia delegation rose finally, and said Pennsyl vania was proud of her sons, both of them, one a great soldier and the other an able statesman; they would gladly vote for either, and then changed her whole vote to Hancock. [Immense cheers and excitement, a great portion of the audience and convention ris ing, cheeiing, waving banners, fans and toss ing up hats.] Hanccck's banner was brought to the front of the platform amid great en thusiasm, the band playiDg "Hail to the Chief." The small banners of the States voting for Hancock were brought for ward to salute Hancock's large banner. The Virginia delegation flock to the front of the platform with the rush m with changes. Ne vada 6 to Hancock. Rhode Island solid for Hancock. (Before the official announcement of the result a motion was made and carried for a new call of the roll of States. ITie sergeant-at-arms announced that the chair had ordered no applause until the call was finished.) Alabama, California and Colorado voted solid for Hancock. [The announce ment of changes to Hancock from the Tilden States was greeted with hisses in the galler ies.] Each State follows suit with a solid vote for Hancock until Indiana, which votes for Hendricks solid. Iowa 21 for Hancock and 1 for Tilden. Maryland, Hancock 14 and Bayard 2. New York 70 for Hancock, which was received with cheers and hisses. All the remainder solid for Hancock. The audience and convention rise and cheer and the band plays "Hail Columbia. Mack, of Indiana, moved to make Han cock's nomination unanimous. He express the deep feeling of his State for Hendricks but that they were loyal to the Democratic party and would do their duty manfully. Speaker Randall was then presented on platform, and said he was there to second nomination of Hancock ; [cheers] to con gratulate the convention on the harmony which bad marked its proceedings, and upon nomination made, which was strong and would bring victory ; it would bring Penn sylvania back to the Democratic roll, and it one which would be satisfactory to the party and the American people, [cheers.] pledged his earnest and instant efforts until victory should crown the work in No vember. If the people should ratify their choice Hancock would be inaugurated, [ap plause.] Wallace, of Pennsylvania, followed. He the Democrats four years ago named a who was elected President, and to-day had named the next. He urged a vigor campaign. He pledged Pennsylvania to place herself in November next in the Dem ocratic column.
