THE MORRISTOWN WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 1880. 'Twas the field, against Grant . and the fiehi won I by Gar. . , Grant's third term sun has eet to rise no more. Conklins's goose is cooked so far a9 Grant is concerned. The candidate for Vice President cannot be called the Arthur of his own fortunes. Conkling made him what he i. There ts one place that will eyer be imbedded deep in the memory of Grant, Conkling and Camerouit is C-h-i-c-a-g-o ! Congress will no doubt adjourn to-day. In the House, ou last Wed nesday, the Senate amendments to the legislative, executive and judi cial appropriation bill were concur red in. By a TOie of 10C to 72 the House concurred in the Senate reso lution for finaj adjournment June 16. ' Garfield and Arthur." That is the Radical ticket. It is the old tiliPt over again. An Ohio briga dier at the head and a New York hummer at the tail. Tilden beat that combination in 1876 and some Ttinn aa pood as he is will do it in 1880. The delegates from the several counties at the State Convention thought it proper to suggest the ap pointment of county electors, and the name of Col. O. C. King was re commended for Hamblen county. Mr. King is an able lawyer, a fine orator, and a Democrat who has yet to shirk work upon the stump when the interests of his party demands it. The following names were sug gested for the other counties f the district: Cocke, W. J. McSween ; Hawkins, L. G. Valker ; Hancock, II. Clay Jarvis ; Claiborne, W. Carr ; Grainger, John K. Shields ; Wash ington, C. E. Dosser; Sullivan, It. Burrow; Unicoi,. W. G.y Anderson; Carter, II. M. Folsom ; Johnson, J. II. Wagner. The selection by the State Con vention of Col. Charles R. Vance, of Sullivan county.as Presidential Elec tor for the First Congressional Dis trict, Is a choice that will give gen eral satisfaction to the Democratic voters of the District. He is well known to the people, i3 in the vigor of manhood, and is a gentleman of fine ability, unquestioned morals and integrity. In honoring him the Con. vention honored the people of the district and the Democracy of the State. We congratulate our friends that Col. Vance heads the list, be lieving that he has the ability to bear with credit the banner of his party through the canvass, no matter who hi9 competitor may be nor how heat ed the contest. THE CHICAGO NOMINEES. Gen. James A. Garfield, of Men tor, was born in Orange, Cuyahoga county, Ohio, November 19, 1831; graduated at William College, Mas sachuetts, in 1856; was President of a literary institution fr several years; studied and practiced law ; was a member of the State Senate of Ohio in 1859-60; entered the Union Army in 1861 as Colonel of the Forty-second Ohio Volunteers; was promoted to the rank of Briga dier General January 19, 1862; was appointed Chief of Staff of the Army of the Cumberland, and was promot ed to the rank of Major General September 20th, 1863; was elected to the Thirty.eighth, Thirty-ninth, Fortieth, Forty first, Forty-second, Forty-third and Forty-fourth Con gresses, and was re-elected, to the Forty-fifth Congress as a Republi- can, receiving 20,012 votes against 11,349 votes for Casern, Indepen- dent Republican. ttfin.

There is, in the action of the .Re publican party by their convention at Chicago, much food for reflection. much upon which the country may congratulate itself. There is in it a strange result. If we look critical ly to the history of parties in this country, during recent years, we find between them not more than two well defined issues. One of those may be defined thus : The Republi can party has seemed determined to brce upon the country a strong gov ernment determined to practically, if not actually, obliterate State ines to make the military an effi cient integral part of civil govern ment. : This idea had its impersona tion in Grantism Grantism rather than third termism. Gen. Grant was the favorite of a very large wing of the Republican party not because of his statesmanship, for he is no states man not because of his availabilty and popularity, because his availa bility for a third term has never been less Lhau doubtful -but because of his arbitrary disposition and the ca pacity he ha9 shown to utterly dis regard all restr&int and limitation To this feature of Republicanism the Democratic Dartv has stood V - k w through all the years diametrically oDDOsed. This ha9 been one issue The other is of kin to this one The Republican party has shown dogged determination to place the elections of the country under Fed eral suoervision. Out of this deter mination on the part of that party and the opposition to it on the part of the Democracy, has grown the long bitter contest between the ma jority in Congress, on the one band, and the stalwart minority and Mr. Haves on the other band. It was an effort to keep party ascendency by the use of party machinery wrought by executive power, on the one hand an effort to enable the people to ex- ill at. the hallot box l cao VUVll ww a a W "f r- - without restraint on the other. At Chicago, after the fiercest strule ever waged iu the Republi- can party, Grantism has sunk into a in lei. na hone eternal niarht. It o - tr went down showing in the very "ago- nies of. its . death the same dogged persistence and insolent self will which has alw&ys phjjracterized it, and which is a distinguishing char- acteristic of tyrants everywhere, But shall there be hereafter Federal supervision of elections in a way to enable the executive to control them? This i9 the only remaining issue. In regard to Ibis the action at Chicago is most significant. Upon W this issue party lines have been very sharply drawn. Democrats in Con- gress all, without exception, said no! by their votes. Republicans in Con- gress, with a single remarkable epcep- tion have said yes! by their votes, That single remarkable exception is Gen- James A. Garfield, the nomi- nee of the Chicago convention ! It was bis band that wrote the vetoed bill, which if enacted into a law would render Federal supervision non-partizan and insure, fair elec- tionsl Thus one issue has been crushed out by the action of the majority ot the covention in '"defeating Grant, And the other has been distinctly surrendered by the party io nomin- ating Gen. Garfield. Upon what, therefore, is the campaign to be fought? Politically it will be Dem- ocralic on both sides. Qn the one) side, however, will be official spoils find bloody . shirts. On the other, the triumphing principles of self government. Can the result be doubtful? In the Circuit Court at Knoxville, last nvn, tc ui tsacw RliaUU TO, tilt ' I East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia railroad company, was concluded by a verdict for Staub for $9,400 damages. Staub was an engineer for the above road and was permanently injured in a collision in 1874. He brought suit for $10,000. On a former trial he obtained a verdict for $750. but he took a new trial on account of the sum being too small. " Counsel for the company enter- i . ed a motion for a new trial in this in- stance.

Th NOUS VERRONS. Since1 it has teen understood that 1 the Hon.R. R.Butler has withdrawn from the canvass for the Republican nomination for Congress in the First District, public opinion seems ; to have settled down upon the idea that Maj. Pettibone will receive the nom ination beyond the possibility of a doubt. Judge Randolph it is true has been busy canvassing the dis trict and has perhaps visited every county in it, but he has so far as is known met with very little encour agement. The truth is the leaders of the Republican party are not for Randolph and he knows it. His strength is with the masses of the people, the yeomanry of the country. and this class the Judge cannot reach in a preliminary caovasa for the nomination. The Judge failed in the outset to organise the proper kind of a machine;' he failed to employ active agents in the differ ent counties and in all the civil dis tricts. whose business it was to work up a Randolph boom and to get an expression ot the opiniou of the common people as to their prefer ence between himself and Maj. Pet tibone ; and the consequence is just upon the eve of holding the noini naling convention the Judge finds himself without any powerful organ ization in his favor. Maj. Petti bone's friends and supporters are thoroughly organized throughou the district ready at any time to move forward in a compact body and to confer the nomination upon him without a struggle. Judge Randolph has some ele ments ot strength not possessed by any other gentleman of hi9 party in this district. Once fairly before the people he would be hard to de feat. But of late the "machine' manages all the preliminaries; the delegates to nominating conventions are invariably named by the town cliques and district bosses. The - Judge has little or no strength with these gentlemen and consequently his chances of receiving the nomina tion are exceedingly slim, if indeed he has any chance at all. As an I old-fashioned East Tennessee pol tician he would be a formidable man in the Greeneville conyention, be cause in those old days the dele gates were in the habit of enquiiing around amog the voters, finding out their preferences and then when the convention met making an hon est effort to confer the nomination upon that candicjalp whp was found to be the choice of the greatest nura ber of the common people. Modern I "ring masters" have changed thi plan of proceeding in both politica parties money is not unfrequently used to procure the attendanee of delegates and so it happens that nominating conventions are now, four times out of five, packed bodies of partial partisans gathered up for the express purpose of putting for- ward the favorite of the ring9, whether that favorite is the choice of the people or not. It is barely possible that the Judge has in the last few weeks sue 'ceeded in organizing a Randolph party in the upper counties. If he has done so he will go into the con vention with some strength after all. He will get some votes from Clai borne county, some from Grainger and will in all probability carry his own county solid. But from pres ent appearances we are inclined to think Maj, Pettibone has a dead sure thing of the Greeneville nomi- nation. Randolph has kept his Mex- ican dollars too closely confined in his eel-skin pouch. If he wanted the nomination bad he ought to have 8CaUered the Mexicans around .

THE MORRISTO WN FE1TALE IITCI1 SCHOOL. To Uie Editor of the Morristown Gaiette : The examination of cluwt at the Morrtetown Female High School wu begun on Wednmdey morning, Jnne 9. We did not have the pleasure of hearing any of the examinations until Wednesday afternoon; but Judging from what we heard, they mast hare been good. AETEBNOOX, - Classes were examined in Grammar, Arithmetic, Algebra, Philosophy, Familiar Science, Astronomy, ie. The examinations were very thorough, and the young ladies answered with a promptness and firmness which showed that they fully understood their books which they bad gone over . We were specially interested in the contest for the prise of fered by the assistant teacher. Miss Cornelia Car riger, to the most successful one in a small spU and very clearly evinced the fact that they had aU been working for that prize; but Miss Lillie Boss was the successful one . She certainly did exceed ingly well. The prize was presented to her, with the usual compliments, by O . McHenderson. WZDKERDAT WIOHT, the Methodist church was full to overflowing. This was the place where the exercises were to be conducted. The first thing on the programme wss devotional exercises afterwards, quite a number of recitations by the little girls, intersperced with most excellent n. nsic. The little girls did well, so reciting their pieces as to show great care on the part of their teacher in drilling them. Half-dozen or more essay were read by some of the larger girls, which were very good. OH THCBHDAT the examination was resumed. We have heard a great many examinations, both In academies and colleges, but we do not think that we ever heard one that equaled this one, taking it all in all. It was perfectly delightful to see the young ladies and little girls answer with such promptness. There was but very few questions missed during the whole of the examination . This is the place to test a school, and thi is the place to find out the worth of a teacher. ON THCHDAT MIOUT, very large audience assembled in the M. E. Church to witness the last of the exercises. The yonng ladies read their essavs, which w thought were exceedingly good. Among the best were Miss Jennie Rose, Miss Lillie D . Richardson, Miss Gammon, Miss Florence Mnrphey, Miss Hughes, Mis Margraves, and Miss Hicks. Then came the annual address by Rev. B. G. Mauard. Mr. Manard' subject was "Our Country, its Re sources, and it Future." He treated bis subject with singular ability, confining himself pridcipal lj to our own East Tennessee, at times rising to ucb a point of eloquence and enthusiasm as to suggest to.a spell-bound listener the sweet-tuned orator of which Homer, the Grecian poet, sung. He referred with a marked degree of pride to the great men who have gone out from our own be loved section, to the vast resources of our country, to the flattering prospects for the future, and when he had finished his able address, he took hi seat 'mid rounds Of long continued applause. The whole of the exercises has been a grand suc cess. .The school is certainly accomplishing pinch,.

Bean's Station, Tenn , June lf0, To the Editor of the MorrtV,va Gette ; At the tge&t request of my many friends, I wil announce through your paper my safe arrival to this beautiful, and picturesque valley, widely kmown a Bean Station. Being so very , feeble when I left home, my relatives aad fiends feared the trip would be o,a ftigulng, but throuKh the Uan attention of our noble-hearted conductor, Capt. Taylor, and the very cordial reception re ceived at the cozy little home of my god friend and relative, Jimmie Rice, I ws euuLkd next morning to redouble my eieriea, aud, with n;y iri )uojt,u y.n cy me wmsperings or that soul cheering liitle bird, Hope, to go on my way re joicing. Early next morning, (Saturday, 6th,) Hon. Wm. McFarland (the preMeut proprietor of the Bean Station property,) learned we wr in town and called around to ana through his kind, iae',.-',c,Kli I, iu company with my daughter, was soon pleasantly seated in Mr. Frank Cain's hack. We found Mr. Cain very accommodating, jovial and pleasant the hack in fine running or der, and "uncle Sam," the model driver, iu a good frame of mind to do his best work, thus rendering the ride as pleasant and comfortable a could lie to an invalid. Nothing transpire o mar our hap piness in the IcmI, tve a little argument on the subject of marriage between, federal soldiers and Southern girls, etc., etc.; some for and otherj against it the majority opposed . Cu arriving at the StaUon we fond this beautiful, ye lovely Placo, ail nicely fitted up, and everything in readi ness to receive us . We were ushered into a spa cious parlor, clean, cool and well ventilated, and after resting a coupl of hours and enjoying a good social chat with our estimable relative, (the landlady,) dinner was announced, which call was responded to without any relifntajice on, our purt. We found the ta,ljle. yell furnished with everything the toijntry affords, and, prepared in a style to sat isfy the tante of the. most fastidious. I hare thor oughly examined this large, commodious and well arranged building from cellar to garret, and i-au safely say that it is the c!ea.npst public building in the Stt,, .. at least it is by far the pure I air I ever breathed In one. I would attempt a duM-rip-tion of the various departments of this large ro mantic building, and the different methods that have been adapted to reuder the air pure and healthy, but fear I would U the patienee of the edjitor. The lnny varieties of water are fine, es pecially the black water. It is about a quarter of a mile to the springs, but we are well supplied with fresh water suited to the wants of different ones, and when we choose ran ride out and use it fresh from tte spring. We ,re. perfectly delighted with the surroundings, and happily situaUd in every respect, and hope to be greatly benefitted by the ose of the water. M. 8. Mc.
