' "',,' , As certainly as anything a. little out of course, or iudicstinR individual inde pptidence of opinion with reference U selecting candidates, is uttered by the Democratic press, so certainty it is taken op by the Radical party as having some very (Treat and remarkable significance. The Charleston Mercury, the Mobile Jttguier, the Avalanche, or any ether influential Democratic paper suggests its imprepsion that . Hancock or another would ba as acceptable as Pendleton, and at once it is announced that the Demo oratie party is split to pieces. Even the miserable Ku-Klux, Beaumont fol-derol was stretched to magnificent proportions, and the late Forrest letter is made mountain of. The wish of the purchased Radical press (jives paternity to false hoods innumerable. , , -. Not long since, in answer to an earn est call from a Northern Democratic journal, we expressed our hearty concur rence in its view that the chances of all candidates should bs rejpectcd, that the responsibility of the selection should rest with Northern Demccrats, and that no movement ehonld be made in this quar ter calculated to throw the South into the scales against the wishes pf the 'major part of the Democrats North. Ia that we were promptly indorsed by the Mo bile JVtoune, and since by other Demo cratic jonrnal. The immediate oca aion of the call alluded to was the supposition . that Col Forsythe, of jthe Mobile Etgitier, and ; others, had exposed the secret of a move ment for Ilanoock against Pendle ton. That there was no truth in the charge as to the lUgisterx bej ond an ex preatioa of an individual preference the common right of all, we were then,'' as in, well eatiafied. The Mobile Regit Ur states that- its . editor always " ex pressed lis admiration for Mr. Pendle ton, detiinatinf bim as his own first choice," bat at the earae time "noting the tendency of public sentiment at the North toward the choice of Gen. Han cock, expresses bis wilHnKness to accept bim, if considerations oi availa bility should render it expedient," It torn out precisely as wa expected. There is no division of opionions here, and there will not he. Southern votes will never he tbrowa in Convention againtt . r.Bd;,Ut the North would select if voting alone.

' ' la that contest Grant a name was not only freely used in behalr of the tta.ticai candidate, but his portrait appeared on the Radical tickets.

The most honest men boast rarely that they "do not awindlel The ' ablest men leave to the little the business of blowing their own trumpets. Great patriots trust the world to find oat their merit, and reward it. if at all. without agency of their own. We have heard of thieves outbellowing a thousand with the cry of "stop thief," that night watchmen and police know burglars by their being bet ter .dressed than, other meo, and that men ' wjjo ' all " their " lives before had been least trusted by their neighbors illuminated, bigger. and hung out more gaudy and costly figs than anybody else, in exhibition of their loyalty during the late war. Thus it is that mere daubs outstep the beauty of the landscape, and the counterfeit ap pears !n more gaudy " colors than the original and the true: We are not over much .'disturbed 'by-1 ' little things," and if any body want! to parade the streets with a feather in his 1 11 1 1 it cap, or tne piacaia icjai u. his back, or to stretch a flsg or two across Jefferson or other streets in proof of loyalty, they are welcbme. Perhaps it is the best proof which could be given by the poor fellow on that subject, and we would not grumble at any neighbor's erjoying the luxury, if it be such to him. i ij " all, ef matter of 'taste, 'ai'the old woman said ' wheh 'she kissed the cow," nd might be proof of loyalty in a loyal" league. If we hit any body we can only apologue by say- ng that is what we intended. And that case ' we, would . only sug gest, by way of compensation, that hen tbe snper loyal flag is bung out, the loaves and fishes should not be omitted from its flowing folds, because mere stars and stripes have no definite meaning to large class of patrons to t whom the loavea and fishes would Speak with a more expressive and comprehensible tongue. We hope we don t intrude. The Radical will wet Tield. It seems from the editorial corre spondence of the Mobile Regitter, that the possibility of the Radicals using force to retain their power in a certain event, s canvassed in Washington. A Demo crat from Indiana was sure of his State, if troops were cot .sent Jo shape the election." This, he, with many others, believed not very improbable. On the other hand, all Democrats avow their purpose to control the government if the "msjority of the legal votes of the peo ple"' gives thenf the right '' What are to be esteemed "legal votes" the writer does not indicate. He thinks it problem atical whether the time of counting tbe electoral vote can be, passed "without civil war," and that it will "depend wholly on the r.erve of the Radicals," who are "afraid to yield np power." He adds: . , . . ... In the event of a eouo d'etat to seize and fib Id tbe government by force, I do not believe the Radicals would have the active sympathy of the army, especially its rank .nd file. Anti-negro is a pow erful sentiment in the rank, of the army. The troops in this city, for example, who have been stationed here so long as to claim residence, are diagusted to be denied gnffraee, . which ia conceded to every son of Africa. Nor are Conserva tives and Democrats scarce among tbe officers. I was surprised at being told the nther day that every officer abont Gen. Grant's headquarters was a Demo crat or Conaervative, opposed to the congressional policy, and indeed that General Grant s owe private leanings are all that way, and in abort, that he only fell into the .Republican arms be cause he was not akilltullymanaged by the President, or courted by the Umocraey. All theae view, show bow inameoaely im portant is the November election, and ho neeessary It' is in tbe tntere.'s ot peace, that tbe Democratic majority should be o overwhelming as to frighten the Radical party from and leave them no excuse f.,r nr bope ia a etup dt furee- ( bu. autS Mia Bleedbewwd.

' ' " r - . . - , Btokea sad the Aearree. We have heretofore alluded to the fact that our Bill was seemingly doing the Africans the great injustice of claiming paternity from them. The - Louisville Journal, understanding him in the same way, says Mr. Stokes, of Tennessee, said in bis speech onluesdayat Chicago: tarn hereto detend toe negro; J. owe my . mo to the race, and I cannot be ungrateful.' We are not sure that we know what Mr. S. means when he says that be owes his lifa tn the nesro race. Were negroes bis nrniranitors? Were they the cause of his advent upon the earth? Did he in herit from them bis breath and blood? Can he trace his genealogy back to Ham, hn aaw hid father's nakedness? In boasting of his colored ancestry, is he blowing his own trumpet ? . We may well wonder how this - man Stokes, who, after having taken actual service in the rebellipn and written as vehemently as he could in defense of it, made oatb at the doors of Congress that he had sever given it the slightest coun tenance, can have the aflrontery to show is face and open his mourn oeiore a public assemblage. He is a disgrace to his ancestry, whatever the color of their skins or the shape of their heels, shins, lips, and noses may nave been. " Cul Bono. The Chicago Tribune (Rep.) remon strated on the day before the Convention met against making impeachment a part of the platform, on the ground that im peachment is a failure, and that a failure is a bad basis for a political campaign. It warned its party that there may be a slip between, the ctp and the lip , as follows: We have a painful remembrance of an election held in Chicago three or four weeks ago. Tbe proper Republican ma jority of this goodly city is about three thousand. We mtde a jaux pat, ana the Copperheads carried the city by nine hundred majority. We presume that the National Convention will bear in mind tbe second fict to which we wish to draw their attention, that the two parties are very evenly balanced in this country, and that there are always enough men floating between tbe two to decide a city or a national election. To travel out of the way to furnish material and ammu nition to the enemy is not usually re garded wise policy in war. j . - - Trssbytsnan (0.8) Assembly. Ai.B4.kt. May 22. The Presbyterian (0 S.)

The Heralit Washington dispatch says if the Presi dent ia convicted Tuesday, a bill will be introduced for such a reconstruction of the Supreme Court as would get rid of Chief Justice Chase, and nndur the rule of Ben Wade, place Staoton at the head of the highest judiciary tribunal. ' ' Tbe same dispatch says Senator Fow ler, of ' Tennessee, bled his opinion upon the 11th Article of Impeachment yesterday. It is quite lengthy, covering about fifty pages of legal cap paper, half of which is devoted to the 1st Arti cle, and the argument against the 2d Article ocoupies eleven pages more. The paper ' is very ably prepared, and presents . an overwhelming . ar ray ot . the . most , powertut ar gument against every article of the list The filing of this opinion -leaves only Sooator Ross, of the seven Republicans required, to .defeat conviction, uncom mitted on the remaining ten articles. " The Conservatives of the Senate, on Monday, will call for a committee of. in vestigation to probe the charges of CoL Cooper'agaiost Senator Pomeroy. - - The witnesses examined yesterday by the impeachment' managers were : Col. Henderson, an Indian agent. Perry Ful ler, Sunset Cox, Sam. Ward, Treasurer Spinner and J. F. Leggett. Cox testified that be was at a , dinner given to the President's counsel by Mr. Wooley, but, so far as he knew,' nothing beyond some of Joe Miller's jokes, revamped by Cox, could be recollected by witness. Henderson, Fowler and.
