To-day the elector! ot this city art called upon to cut their vote for a mayor end mual clpal officsrs. The Bepubllcan ticket, which will be found la another column, ought to be, ad we truct will be choeen. MOet certainly It will If our frleode do tbetr whole duty. Of our candidate for mayor, S. J. Bo we o, we here spoken freely, and hare ah own ble ability to discharge the dalles of thli pciltlon, end hare stated the reasons that demand hli election atthle time. That Mr. Bo wen li a gentlemen or capacity, lotecrlty, end extcu tlr ability, and that he would make good mayor, none of hi political opponents here rentured to deny. That his Influence with Congress will be potential, and that hlselee. tlonwllldo more for the benefit of this city, ten fold, than can poaalbly be secured by the election of Mr. OlTen, Is admitted. To all we hare said upon this vlewof the subjeet the papers tn opposition ham made no reply They hare no arguments and no principles which they dare arow. They hare carried on the campaign by whole columns of personal abuse of Mr. Bo wen, and their sheets hare teemed with iUtribtt of slang brought foi ward against the party that supports Mr. Bowen. We hare left all these weapons of personal abuse In the bands of those Journal Ista whose trade In politics Is, as they think, promoted by these means. It Is enough for ue to know that Mr. Bowen will make a good Mayor, and that his success and the success of the party which has placed him ta nomination guarantees the building up and the Improve meat of this city. We want a change; we want Improvement) we want to see this city la a condition that shall reflect credit upon the country of which ltlsthecipltal. Elect the Republican ticket and we at once enter upon a career which will not atop till this city becomes what its found ers designed It to be. All these statements which we now reeeplt ulatethe opposition reply to with persona abuse of our candidate and such slang as this: "negro candidate," and "negro party." They are Improving, ho water. In their style. We congratulate them upon the acquirement of better manners. It used to be nljjfr, It la now negro. Br and by, when they experience morerererses, they will come to epeak of this class as our colored fellow-c It liens. Who knows! Impotent, If not ImpndoM. The World makes the following Impotent attempt to clear Itself of tire Inconsistency in which It la lorolred la cooeeaueaee of the articles which It wrote on Oca. Orant at the close of the war and those which It now pro duces. The course of the World Is contemptible, and this last dodge Is absolutely too peurlle to merit a serious reply. Why does not the World oppose (Jen, Orant on political grounds, and let alone his mili tary record) or, does that Journal feel that he Is as strongly fortified In his political position as he Is In his character as a great captain, andtbat It can better afford to eat Its owa words and assault his military record than to make an attempt to overthrow ble political atrongboldl At any rate there Is confession of weakness la the World position, and we propose to let our readers eee its self-atultlfi. cation. Here It la t "That we spoke of blm (Grant) In terms of feaerous, and eren lavish appreciation, at bat time (the aurrenderof Lee,) Is quite truet and It Is a circumstance for which we think we hare no occasion to blush. We shared the profound Joy of the country In the close of the war, and ferrent, overflowing gratitude Is notreryapt to measure Its Ian luare. In the contagious it low of feeling, we spoke of Qen. Orant ae alorer would sneak of his mistress, or rather as alt patriots hare spoken of elf $ucctnnl gttitra.lt In the hour of victory. A writer must be of a very churlish disposition who, on such an occasion, btttovt halting or niggardly pratit, or stands to welch with mueb eaactaesa his complimentary epi thets. But probably tuch tjfutiont art not tkt tourctt on which a historian would chiefly rely for a Just estimate of military commanders. Tbey neither estop the writer nor anybody else from eooler and more exact inquiry." Tbe Chinese Embsiiy. Hon.
