Wopubllih eleuwlierou vail for a demo cratic convention in this, tho eighteenth congroisionnl district. County contral commlttoes will plcnto take notice. Grave queitlons aro brought up by thli announcement, for imniodiato coniidur ntiori. Chief among tbcio, lithi.: How can the element! of Opposition in this dli trlct, tho Democrats and lluformen, be so united as to insure tho defeat of tho Jud ical candidate? Tho purposes of those two elements aro identical, and their principles aro so nearly so that a common platform can easily lo constructed. Why, then, may not the Democratic contral committee already formed, and tho ro- rotm central commutes in process oi formation; moot for conference, and de tormlnolf tbo obstacles in tbo way of a consolidation of forces, (which will arise chiefly in the (election of a candUate) may not bo romovod? Place a good man in tha field, ono who is accepliblo alike to Democrats and Koformors, and Isaac Clo menu will bs loft at home by a majority of 4,000 votes. If such a result is worth contending for let tho two central com mltteos no mod take tho Initial steps at onco, and then judicious effort will bring It about. We agree with tho Gazette Tho great question in this distriot is: "How can the elements of Opposition bo con solidated so as to insuro tho defeat of the Hadical candidato ?" It surely can not bo done by tho Domocratio Con gressional Coiumiltco refusing to act in harmony with the Liberals and the In dependent Ilcformors by calliugDem ocrats to assemble iu convention and shuttingatho doors of tbo convention iu tho faco of tho other elements of op position. Hut the committee has called a Democratic convention, without in viting the co-oporution of either tho Liborals or Independent lleformers. That mistako has already been made. It tbo convention, following in tho footsteps of tbo committee, should ro fuse to solicit tho support of tho "other elements ol Opposition" in this dis trict, and nominate n man who can rally, not only tho Democrats, but tho Liberals and the Independent Reform ers, then good-byo to all hope of suc cess. The moment the eon vontion makes tbo mistako we have indicatcd,that mo ment will the Clements political gooso bo observed to hang high, while every thing on the Radical side of tho house will becomo lovely. rnivATK lioAKDiNO.

As soon as this state of tbincs was discovered, it was determined upon to send the girl out of UrJoklyn,as a protection to lieochor. She was tent to a boarding-school. Deecbor paid hor expontos through Moulton, This might havo amounted to some $2,000. Several gontlnmen contributed to the supporS of tho Goldea Ago, and Beecber, he said, might have boon among tho num ber, but Moulton oould account for that. THAT SERVXhT QXBL STORY.

"Hccauso I trusted her as If sho wero 'a child. I never quite trusted him, but be lieved that her religious nature was in vincible.

About this tlmo Mr Tiltnn, who had boon cool and fluent, stoppod and closed his lips hard, and in Id to mo, with evident feeling: "George do you think all this oxpesuro and uproar with ruin Kllzabetb 1 ' Said I : "Inevitably, kut that will not prevent you from doing your duty as you seo it. Tho first right of man is tho pur suit of happiness. You lako tbo conscqu onces if you dlsacrou with the public, but you have taken the worst alroady. A. man who can reconcile a wife who has bolmvnd llko yours, has nothing to sutler from tho public taunt." Said Mr Tilton, with his eyes on tbo floor: "I do not seo how we can over rn. sumo our relations after tlio'o cruel revela tions as to mo, false and disgraceful, mid put In her mouth by lleecher's lawyers, llut I wish I could see away to miiko mankind think leniently of ber.

On tbo card Inclosed bo also wrote; "Boeder's apology was mttdo six months before T. T. evor saw Mrs. Woodhull."
