Editor JeffersonUn: It having become apparent that it is the sentiment of the Demncracyof this district that there should be no contest for the nomination of a candidate for Congress, hot our action should be uni ted and harmonious, 1, therefore, imita ting the example of Hon. Henry Bohl, withdraw from the contest, believing that by so doing I raav be ape to contribute something toward tbe attainment of these desirable objects.

Samuel Jones Tilden the No blest Roman of Them All, Announce His Determination Retire From Politics, to HE KE VIEWS THE SITUATION. Bsrrf . . . . . And Prophesies Grand Things lor tbe Democratic Party. New York, June 11 The following communication from S tnu l J, Tilden has been given tbe Associated Pr.se : New York, June 10 To Daniel Manning, Chairman of the Demo oo ratio State Commi'tee of Mew York : I In my letter or June 18. 1880, ad. dressed to the delegates from lh S'ate of New York to tbe Democratic Nation al Convention I aaid, "Having now borne fai'hfully my full share of labur and care in tbe public service, and wear ing tbe marks ol its burdens, I desire nc thing so much as an honorable die charge. 1 wish to lay down tbe bonra and toils of even quasi party leadership, ard to seek the repo e of private, lite. In renonncing s re-nominstion for the Presidency I do so with no doubt in mv mind ss to tbe vote of the State of New York, or of tbe United States, bu be cause I believe that it is a renunciation of re-election to tbe Presiiency. To those who think mv renominstion snd re-election indispensable lb an effectual vindication of tbe right of the people to elect their rnlera, violated In my person, I hsvs accorded ss long s reserve of my decision ss possible. But I cannot over come my repugnance to entering into a new engagement which invojy.es four, years of ceaaeless toil. Tbe dignity ot the Presidential office is above Tnerely Personal Ambition. But it creates in me no illusion. Its vslue is ss a great power for good to tbe country. I ssid four years sgo, ia accepting nomination : "Knowinc as I do, therefore, from fresh experience, how great tbe difference is in gliding thiougb sn official routine and working ot a reform of ystems and policies, it ts impossible for me to contemplate whst needs to lie done in tbe Federal admin ist ration without an anxious sense of the difficulties of tbe ondertsking. It sum moned by the suffrages ol my coun try men to attempt this work, I ahall en endeavor with God's help to be the ef ficient instrument of their will." Such s work ot renovation after many Tears of Mlsrnle, such s reform o( systems and p-iiides to which I would cheerfully bsve sacrificed sll thst remained to me of health and life is now I fear bet ond my strength." My purpose to withdraw from further public service and ths grounds of it were st thst time well known to you snd to others, snd when st Cincinnati, though respecting mv wi-hes yourself, you com municated to me an sppesl from many valued friends to relinquish that purpose, "reiterated m? determination uncondi tionally. In the four years which bsve since elapsed nothing hss occurred to weaken, but everything to strengthen, tbe consideration which indiced my withdrawal from public life. To sll who bsve addressed me on the subject my in tention has been frankly communicated. Several of my most confidential friends, under the aanction of their own names, have publicly stated my determination to hi irreversible. That I hae occa sion now to consider the question is sn event for which I bsve no leeponsihility. The sppesl made to me by the Demo cratic masses with such apparent unani mity to serve them once more s enti tled to the most deferential consideration snd would inspire s disposition to do snvtbing desired of me, i it were con sistent with my judgment or duty. I believe thst there is no instrumentality In human society so potential in ita in fluence on mankind, for good or evil as the gov 'rnmeotsl machinery for adsinix- tering ,nstice an t maxing sua executing laws Not all tbe Eleemosynary Institutions of private renevtHence to which philan tbropbists may devote their lives, are s fruit's! in benefits as tbe rescue snd pre- ervation of this mscbinery from the pre versions that muke it tbe instrument of conspiracy, fraud and crime against the most sscred tig its snd interests of the people For fifty years ss a privste cit zen, never contemplating an official career, I have devoted st least ss much though snd effoit to the Doty ot Influencing aright tbe action of the govermntaI insti tutions of my country ss to sll other ob jects. I bsve never accepted official service except for s brief period for s special purpose snd only when the occa sion seemed to require from me thst sac rifice of private preferencea to the public welfare. I undertook tbe State sdmiais (rati. n of New York because it wsa sup posed that in that way only could the Executive power be arrayed on the side of tbe reforms to which as s private cltixen I had given three years of my life I accepted the nomination for the Presidency in 1876 because of the general con vie i a tbst my candidacy would present toe Issue ot Reform which the Democratic majority of tbe people deaired to have worked out in the Federal Government, as it bad been in that of tbe State ot New York. I be lieved that I had atrength enough tben to renovate the edminia ration of the government of tbe United States, snd st tbe close of my term to bsnd over tbe grest trust to s successor faithful to tbe same policy. Though anxious to seek the repose ot privste life, I nevertheless acted upon the ides thst every power is s trust, and involves s duty. In reply to address to the committee communiuat- it g my nomination I depicted the diffi culties of tbe undertek!og,snd likened my feelings in engaging in it to those of s soldier entering battle. But I did not withhold tbe entire conservation of my powers to the public service. Twenty years of continuous maladministration under the demoralising influences of in testine wsr sod ol bad finance, hsvs in fected the whole governmental system of the United States with the cancerous growths of false constructions snd cor rupt practices. Powerful classes have acquired pecuniary interests in official abuses and the Moral Standards of tbe people has been impaired. To redress these evils is s work of great difficulty snd labor, and cannot be ac complished without tbe most energetic and efficient personal action on the part of tbe Chief K ecutive of the Republic. Tbe canvass ana administration which it is desired thst I should undertake would embrace a period of nearly five year Nor can I admit any illusion as to their burdens. Three years of experience in tbe endeavor to reform the Municipal Government of tbe City of New York, ,lo tDe administration of the State of New York, have marie me familiar with the requirements of snob s work. At the present time tbe considerations which in dnced my action in 1880 have become Imperative. I ought not to assume s taik which Hiave not the Physical Strength to carry through To reiorin ths sd ministration of the Federal government, to realize say own ideal snd to fulfil ths just expectsttoDs of tbe people, would Indeed warrant, aa tbev could alone compensate, tbe sacrifices which the undertaking would involve. But in my condition of advancing years, and de clining strength, I feel no assurance of my ability to accomplish those objects. I am therefore constrained to say dell nitely that I cannot now assume tbe la bors of an adminiatration or of a can vass Undervsluing in no wise thst best git ot Heaven, the occasion snd the power ' sometimes bestowed upon a mere individual, to impart an impulse for good. Grateful beyond all words to my fellow countrymen, who wonld as sign such s heoificenl function to me, I am consoled by tbe reflection tbst nei ther the Democratic party, nor tbe Re public for whose future that party is the best guarantee, is now, or ever can be dependent on any one man for their successful progress in the path ot s no ble dee iny. Hsvius given to tbeir welfare what ever of health and strength I possessed, or could borrow from tbe future, sod bsving reached the term of mv capacity fWf such labors as tbeir welfare now de mands, I hot submit to the will of God in deeming my public career forever cloaed.

Unworthy ot Republican Support. Boston, June 10 The Advertiser, Republican, ssys : "The events of tbe Isst few days hsve given us no answer to the objections so often urged in these columns against the nomination of Mr. Blaine and sgsins' tbe course of Mr. Blaine ss s public man, and have presented no contingency is which these objections could be waiv ed consistently with truth or political honor. We hsve, tben, nothing to re tract and nothing to modify. With un abated devotion to tbe grest purpose for which the Republican parly was orgsn ised and bas been maintained, we declare our inability to support the nomination, either in tbs present aspect of the polit icsl field, or in sny which now seems likely lo present itself."

To bim the country will turn to eee wbst tbe party honors snd what qualifications it holds to be essen tial for the highest trust. It would, we think, bsve been po-sihle to name a car did ate whose nomination, with tbe pres ent feeling of tbe country, would have been equivalent to an election, a candi date who would have aroused all tbe old republican enlbusiaara by appealing to tbe deaire of pure and progressive poli tics, which was tbe animating principle of tbe other republican campaigns Originally the republican party was a reform party, and having achieved the greatest of reforms in emancipation snd in sn smended constitution, freed r v ll taint of slavery, it is strongest wbea its young snd srrlent workers, the test "workers" of a parti-, feel tbst it is still esentislly s progressive end sggreesive reform organization, snd when tbe.t knew tbst it is led in s Presidential year by a candidate who ia in character and career s true snd fitting representative of political progress snd reform. The fact that a candidate is selected who Is not such a representative properly alarms them snd shakes their faith in the patty. A REPUBLICAN TRADITION. "It ia true that tbe republican paity is 'always strong in tbe weakness of tbe democratic opposition; but thst is a negative strength. Tbe d mocratic party really stands for nothing but opposition and a repulsive tradition. Tbe endeavor to Identify it with any definite pol cy -xcept that which .is known ss "general cussedness" fa la : but that is not an ar gument which can electa Preaident. The nomination of Mr. Blaine although it is doubtless sgreesble to the maj iritv of the party, aa shown st Chicago, be cause s large part of the apparent op- poaition, as in the Indiana and Illinois, and even in tbe Ohio delegation, was friendly to bis nomination ought to alarm boneat republicans as showing how dangerously Isr the republican standard has fallen. Tbe nominstions st Chicago, made against the most friendly republican remonstrance, have forced upon republicans tbe conviction tbst tbe grest objects of tbe republican psrty honest snd economical admini. tration. peaceful and honorable foreign relations, tbe progressive purification of the public service st bom' , wise reduc tion of tbe revenue, and that sense ot genersl scrutiny which springs from tbe moral elevation of the sdministrst on are not to be expected Irom republican success. TBK REPUBLICAN CONSCIENCE. To tots statement it ia no reply that less is to be expected from tbe demo, crate. Those who bsve sroosed the deep snd genersl protest of tbe repub lican conscience most bear tbe respon sibility of the result. Fidelity to re- publican principles requires indifference to present republican success, snd Har per's Weekly, which more then once has not hesitated, in the intsrest ol tbe pub lic morality and of party purification, to oppose other republican nominal iona, cannot sustain tbe significant one againat which it bus so est nest ly protested snd which is s practical abdication of repub- I can character snd purpose.
