Breckinridge died at his residence In Lexington, Kentucky, on Monday evening last. He had been very low for some time, and his death was not unexpected. The deceased was a noted man and his name will occupy a conspicuous place in the pages of future American historians. Breckinridge was born near the town la which he died, January 21, 1821. He was educated at Center College, Danville, studied law at Transylvania Institute and settled in Lexington. He served as a Major iv the Third Regimeut Kentucky Volunteers dur ing the Mexican war, but had little opportunity for active service. After the close of the war he was elected to the State Legislature. In 1851 he was elected to Congress, and in 1853 a vio lent campaign closed with his re-elec tion. During the first session of the thirty-third Congress the discussion of the Kansas - Nebraska bill involved !)itn in a controversy with CUTTING of New York, and » duel was agreed upon though it went no farther than the arrangement of the preliminaries. During the administration of President Pierce he was offered tbe Ministry to Spain, but did not accept it. In 1856 he was elected Vice-President on the Buchanan ticket. In 1850 he was uominated for President by one faction of the Democratic party and received the electoral votes ot all the Southern States except Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Missouri. During the uame year he was elected to the United States Senate from Kentucky. He afterward went South, entered the Southern army and rose to the rank of Major-General. In 1865 he was ap pointed Secretary of War under Jeff. Davis, and after the surrender of Lee he went to Europe, whence he re turned in 1868 to his old home in Ken tucky, where he remained until his death. Ida Greeley's Husband. So much has been said about Col. Nicholas Smith, who married Miss Ida Greeley, that we feel impelled to venture our opinion on this society episode. Col. Smith claims to be from Kentucky, but the following from a Chicago Tribune correspondent shows just where he belontrs: Leavenworth, May sth.—So many news paper correspondents are penning sketches ol Col. Nicholas smith, and so many ol them are writing from hearsay, that I am tempted for the sake of truth itself, to tell you some thing about our Kansas bridegroom. As Col. Smith's neighbor and friendly acquaintance of five or six years' standing, I can speak of him with some knowledge oi his merits as a man und bis worth as a writer Like all men, he lias his faults; and his conspicuous, overshadow-!ng weakness Is vanily of his personal beauty. In form and beauiy. In form and fea.uie he is the hand somest man I ever saw. He neglected noth ing calculated to enhance the effect of his handsome dgurc. His teeth are two rows ol superb pearls, without blemish. In riding, walking or standing, lie studies the grace of attitude — always displaying his elegaplly moulded form to the best, advantage. His beauty Is of the Edwin Booth tppe, if thai may be called a type of its own. He is of pie dium stature, perhaps slightly above, and I Judge about forly years of age. I ought not o neglect to say that be adopts the Brooklyn style of long hair. When I add tbat his ey.-s are large, dark and cxi resslve, your readers may be able to form a correct picture of Miss Greeley's husband, from Kansas." It woultl seem from this that Leav enworth, Kansas, has furnished an other newspaper item. Leavenworth is, perhaps, the most beautiful city in the West, but has had its prosperity ruined by local feuds, desperate politi cians and railroad thieves. Lately she has furnished more scandals, shooting scrapes and frauds than any city on the Missouri river. She has had thieves, assassins, dead-beats and grasshoppers, but the biggest toad in the puddle is this veritable Col.(?) Nicholas Smith, of Kentucky (?), the widower who married Tda Gree ley. He came to Leavenworth from Kentucky in the early history of the town and his name is Nicholas Verres Smith, but the practical Kansans call him "Very Ridiculous :iMiTH." Having a little education, he was selected by Jim Lane as his private secretary, and when Jim was giving his characteristic "Great God" speeches, Nicholas would be posiug in classic attitude against one of the Cottonwood posts of the platform; or when Jim wanted an illustration from ancient mythology, his good-looking secretary furnished it. Nicholas is about six feet high, well built, with flowing locks and a face a cross be tween Tilton's and Joaquin Mil ler's, disdains to work and covers his face and hands with corn meal at night to keep them well bleached. He is a lawyer without practice, and boasts that he has never labored for a living. He is poor in everything but looks, and for years has been a pensioner on his sister, Mrs. Johnson,the widow of Col. H. P. Johson, of Kansas, who was killed early in the war. Early in the late war he received a commission in the regular army, and was sent to Louisville, Ky., on re cruiting service, where in two years he recruited two men at an expense of $6,000 to the Government. Here he became acquainted with his first wife, a beautiful and accomplished lady, daughter of a wealthy Kentuckian, who refused to marry him unless he resigned his commission. The gallant Captain finally wasted several pages of official note telling President Lin coln that he had had a severe strug gle between his patriotism and bis love, but at last his love had tri umphed, and soon received a brief reply on bis own communication, "Accepted. A. Lincoln." It was only a short time afterwards that his impecuniosity drove him back to Lane's bounty, and the latter ob tained for him the appointment of Minister to Greece, but before his eon !ir.nation he gave Senator SUMNER a piece of his mind and the latter, who was Chairman of Foreign affairs, had the position stricken from the diplo matic list. After this little rebuff Captain Smith appeared very seldom ln public, though he used to call on President Lincoln, and the inter views were always an intense amuse ment to the old rail-splitter. Smith imagined that Lincoln greatly ad mired him, and relates that on one oc casion Lincoln placed his paternal hands on his cheeks and said: "Capt. Smith, you are a pretty man; you ought to have been a woman." Several years ago Smith's wife and child died and he was inconsolable, taking every occasion to tear his po etic locks, disarrange his flowing cra vat.and wring dramatic tears from his eyes, when he had an admiring audi ence; but it is said of him that he never took this dangerous exercise until he had looked in a mirror and seen that his back hair was just right and his moustache nicely waxed. He cursed the Almighty for his cruelty, aud then ordered a portrait of his de ceased wife, before which, while the artist was painting it, he used to pose and stroke his moustache, giving vent to his heart-breaking grief in such re marks as: "My wife was a pretty wo man, but not so handsome as I am." In New York he may be Col. Nich olas Verres Smith, but in Kansas he is and always will be Very Ridic ulous Smith. Ida Greeley, the daughter of the self-made statesman, has married a self-made egotist aud a nature-made idiot. The Master Cometh. There is bound to be trouble in the Republican camp. The fates have willed it and the cunning of the lead ers cannot turn aside the edict of the sisters. About eight years ago a young man of great versatility of tal ent and fertility of resource, named George C. Gorham went into the Republican State Convention, and unaided alone so fluttered the dove cote that to this day the truly loyal there assembled have not recovered their equanimity. The Voices had not a greater dread of the sword of Coriolani's than the Republican managers have of the cunning diplo macy of the affable and energetic George. They know that with only the trifling and unimportant assist ance of the Central Pacific Railroad Company he routed the sage of Chico and drove his forces into the arms of the enemy, where they received such a squeezing that they have never since fully inflateil their wind apparatus. Alone he did it. They hate George as his .Satanic Majesty does holy water. Like Sinbad's Old Man of the Mountains, he maintains his posi tion about the neck of the party and they cannot get rid of him. Unlike the Old Man, the callabash of foment ed wine has no charms for George, and so the prospect for shaking him off and braining him with a bit of curbstone is anything but encourag ing. Another campaign is coming, and so is George. He wants to pull the wires that shall make the Repub lican Punch and Judy hop, skip, jump and finally fall down, and the old managers say he shall not, well know ing all the time that he will. Since the announcement that Gorham had left Washington for the purpose of managing the Republican campaign in California there has been a terrible fluttering among the doves. Several of the journals have called upon the party to stand firm and refuse him admittance within the ranks, urging that he wrecked them eight years ago and protesting that he will do it again if permitted to take the lead. But it won't do. The fates have spoken, and what is to be will be. George con trols through little Aaron A. Sar gent, the Quaker Hill Statesman, the Federal patronage of the Pacific Coast, and therefore no Federal office holder dare say him nay. The rank and file, the mudsills, the great un washed portion of the party—those who do not hold office and have no aspirations that way—may fume and fret, stew aud sweat, tear and swear until the air of San Frnucisco is as full of curses as that of Sacramento is of mosquitos, but George will run the Republican party as far into the ground as he sees fit. Hence we say there is bound to be trouble in the camp of that organization. Military Appointments for Arizona. Washington, May 17th. — Major Michael P.

New York, May 17th.—It is ru mored that negotiations are pending for compromise of suit of German bondholders against the California Pacific railroad.
