It was not enough that twenty Senators were ex cluded, who, if fairly representing the oleel of their ten States, would be nam bered emonn his friends.

Henry I. lay on tae nscai ou uu rnmnr:;.-,r. bi!!s of 1842. was sat lained as earnestly in fail vetoei by the Democrati at Johmon hat been in thit impeachment trial He was doing their work and they etrengtbened bit bands. Ttfe re.ult was, in the triumph of Tyler, such a crippling of the Whig party tha', in 1844, with Henry Clay himself as itt standard-bearer, they were defeated by Polk, a Democratic obscurity from Ten nessee. Tyler, early in the field, was a candidate on the lookrot for the Democratic nomination. There waa, in fact, simultaneously with the gathering of the Democratic nomi nating convention in Baltimore, a convention hard by of the independent Tyler party by way of a fl ank movement ; but it was utterly ignored over the way, and it ended in the surrender of Tyler to the Democratic nomination oi rou. Tyler, in short, had so far identified him self with tbe Democratic cause that, next to his own nomination, he desired the de feat of the Whig candidate; and thit it now the attitude of Johnson towards the radicalised Republican party. The Democratic managers thoroughly under stand it, and to, without the remotest idea of nominating Mr. Johnson, tby are in any event, at against General Grant, confident of fait support Bennet, like an expert matchmaker, however, as usual, hat a new tiring to hii bow. He dropi Grant as a heavy and not very Taluable weight to carry, and just now thinks Chase it the coming man. Chase it sopposed to be honest eoongh to stand with Fewenden and Grimes, and to do what no passable county court judge could help doing with decency try the impeachment case ac ..nrdin to' tbe law and tbe testimony. So he ii tbe giant of the occasion of course, and must be nominated, if a bet ter man should not turn op before that happens. Besides Chaie it tbe wonder ful financier, whose head adorni every greenback, and whose parse wai better than Grant's iword in carrying on tbe war. Indeed, be hai come to be such Hercules, that, whether the President it acquitted or convicted, he will be elected at the people't man. Well, we ahall know more when we learn more. State CoaveatiWB. We noblish to-davthe call of the Dem ocratic Central Committee of Tennessee for a convention to be held at Nashville on the 9th of June- Delegate! ibould be chosen through county conventions, for which Durnose it will be necessary to hold primary meetings in the several counties at a day sufficiently early to assure rep resentation. Tnose opposed to the Kid ical policy are called upon to partici pate, and we doubt not all will do io freely. All old party lines are properly isnored. and every white man invited to the enjoyment of a political right, which none but the Radical party in this coun try ever before presumed to deny. We are equally pleased with the call of tbe committee, and with the character oi that call. Nor do we regard it as having been postponed too long. We have urged a convention heretofore, not ai an " exhibition of impatience" at (he delay, as suggested by tbe fJnioit and DUpatah, with reference to the' previous importunitis of some friends of the measure, but rather be cause of seeming opposition, to se proper a thing, became a doubt tad grown up whether tbe call would be made at all, and because we knew it would take all tbe time which hai thus far beea con sumed in paving the wsy to the accom- rjliahmenL The same reasons which led the committee to wait, advise, and " can vass the sentiment of tbe people, bad led us to doubt whether that "concur rent opinion" on which the Committee hai now acted really existed, as it should, or whether it must be the fruit of discoi eion. Hence, so far al we were con cerned, and without intending any cen sure of the committee, we bare advo cated what we thought right, and are pleased to know tbat onr fears and dis trust were unfounded. With reference to the announcement of the committee, the Futon and Vtipatch layi: The call it properly directed to all who oppose the party in power. It ii catho lic and comprehensive. It ignores tbe party divisions of former times, and dif ferences of opinion during the recent war. It is intended to embrace Whigs and Democrats alike, Union men and Confederates. The Convention ia ex pected to be composed entirely of white men, who will represent the political -;kl.

Mr. Henry Berg, President of the Society for the Preven tion of Cruelty to Animals, lectured in favor of horse flesh as food, before the former club, yesterday. On his retire ment, a resolution, recommending horse flesh for that purpose, was laid on the table, by an almost unanimous vote of tbe delegates.

Mr. Alexander advocated tbe view that, ai the blacks would not attain social equality in this country, the best thing they could do would be avail them selves of the advantage! presented by African colonization. The Hew Conspiracy. The devilish ingenuity of the Radical leaders parses human understanding. Tbe latest development of their diabolism it contained in tbe dispatch published yesterday from Washington, announcing tbat in the event of tbe conviction of the President immediate steps would be tken for tbe arrest and trial of Ribert E. Lee for treason. Tbe object of this movement, it is stated, is to involve Gen. Grant in difficulties on the subject of Gen. Lee't parole extended to bim by Gen. Grant in turrender, which wilt ope rate against him in the Chicago Conven tion, and perbapt prevent his nomina tion. It is known that Gen. Grant con siders bimseif in honor bound by tbe terms of that surrender, and that ai an officer and a gentleman he feeli that he must stand ai tbe protection of those with whom be made terms to procure the turrender. Thit, of course, is the view wbicb every honorable man must take of the tubject If wai provided in the terms of capitulation, tbat the Confederates who surrendered should retire to their respective home', and to long as they acted the part of peaceable and quiet citizens, they should be free from inter ruption and arrest Gen. Lee. hat done this. There baa not been a whisper against bit conduct tince the close of the war, and to arrest him now would be a groit violation of the termt npon which be surrendered, which Gen. Grant, if he has any regard for hit reputation as a soldier, will be bound to resent. This is what the conspirators hope and what they design. They wish to force him into tome expressions of favor toward Gen. Lee which they can use wilb the extreme Radicals to hit prejudice. That Gen. GranC"will resent tbe proceedings referred to if any such are inaugurated we do not doubt If he does not, he will be forever disgraced. But whether any capital will be manufactured against bim out of that faot remains of be sen. We have too rouoh oonfidence in the good sense of the Americon people to believe it Louisville Courier.
