Pen Pictures of the Flashy Negro, the Polished Negro, the Learned Negro and the Old Negro. Pinchback, the Well-Known Negro, and a Host of Other Sorts of Negroes Paintetfln Ink. S/*riai to the JUyi*t*r. Chicago^ June 7.—Now that the excite ment of ike Eighth Republican X^onal Convention Ls over, there is time to recall the pictures that flashed before the eye I of the spectator1. Brilliant, gloriously coloml pictures, many of them were. Others clouded by defeat and soiled by passion. None were more interesting thau the silhouettes presented by the one hundred colcred men who occupied seats as delegates in the convention. With these one hundred colored delegates came two huudred colored ,-pectators from the cotton fields and rice plantations of the South. They afforded a currious and instructive study. Generally they are good natural, jolly, affable fellows, who are not aware of th^ir color, and the better class of them are shrewd, sharp and not to be caught with chaff. They present as many variations in t\pe as any equal number of whites selected at random from a half score or more of States. All Sort*. The aged negro is here. So is the j» »jii|> oils, the imposing, the flashy, the ignorant anil the highly educated Kthiop. Fred | Douglas jtcrhaps better than any other man j of his race represents tin* learned uegro He is looked up to by the Sontheru negro with a certain degree of reference that hi Nortlurn brother does not feel for the living »|>ostle of miscegt-uation ' Senator llemoj. .» large, dignified appearing man, with the airs of a lord, is a true representative of the iii)|M>?iiig negro. Demos is a Louisiana man, who has the most unbounded faith in the |H>s.sibilitieK of each member of his race and particularly of his own The Thrifty N>j;ro. The South has sotue wealthy negroes. Men who control large plantations ami work numerous hands. Such a man is Harvey, of Mississippi. He owns a large cotton farm; is well educated and sell possessed. He talks well and delights to get a crowd around him. Like most intel ligent colored men he is unconscious of.his color ami any possible prejudice on account of it. There is not the slightest suggestion of deference to w hite opinion. He has his say, without obtrusiveness, is courteous, and well versed in social amenities. He is a well dressed man, but his attire is devoid of effort at display. The big diamond on his black hand is the oulv evidence of that per sonal vanity which often makes negroes so conspicuous and sometimes offen sive. Referring to the election of Mr. Lynch as temporary chairman he said. Uin v ry glad of the Lynch epi sode. I -•** no special political significance in it, but rather regarded it as a compli ment to our race, and it was a timely and graceful compliment. "He filled his trust with ability, did he not?' Mr Harvey asked with pride. The Nejjro lliulr. Men among the Harvey tv|>e hare great contempt for the dudes among the colored tuen, who make themselves so numerous. And they are numerous. The Grand Pacific and Sherman House have most of the colored dudes ou exhibition. They are generally eopjjcr colored, but often oue sees the genuine negro, decked out m the loudest of clothes, the shiniest of hats, a fancy cane and the regulation dude collar. These are of two classes—the smart lloston and the New York darkey, who at home is a boss barber, a chief cook, a head waiter, but al ways one who has hung upon the edges of society, and knows the ways of fashionable people und imitates them, and the flashy aarkev from the South who has all the iu stincts and love of display of his Northern brethren but without opportunity heretofore to indulge them Not to Blamr. A very intelligent colored man from Vir ginia, a contingent of the Mahonc delega tion in refcriiig to this love of display said that the yonng colons! man from the South was scarcely to blame. At home he is re stricted both as to means and opportunity. He enn't wear good clothes there, because they are not to be had, and he has no money to buy tbein if they were. He cymes up here; he finds he is treated at hotels, bars, iu railways and in all other things without prejudice. It is all novelty, lie enjoys it and is at once seized with a desire to become noticeable. He thinks flashy clothes and fashionable hats and nobby canes is the way to attract ^tention. He sees these fancy darkies froi^ New York, IJoston and Philadelphia, with their clothes of artistic cut, their general air of luxury, and he wants to pet right into their ranks. He goes off, sells his tickets, or raises money in any other way ho can aud the next day you will see him in exaggerated elegance and all the more exaggerated be cause you can see he is unused to it. and the style ill becomes him." Bruce and Ptnchbnck. Bruce is one of the most intelligent men on tiie ground, and eminently respectable. So is Pinchback, of Louisiana. The latter is bi tter known than any of the ue<rro dele | pates, perhaps. Ilis name is K 15. S i j Pinchback. Percy Bysshe Shelly Pin •h j back is wh»' the Sew "York Sun made the name out years ago and hangs to it, but I that is d— nonsense, said Ham Carter, of Yicksburg, yesterday. "Pinchhack's nime is Pinekney Benton Stuart Pinchl»ck ' «J want you to know that be derives his name j from a line of statesmen—not a line of poets, not much—and the Honoraide "Ham" leaned harder agatnst his post. "Statesmen sir, riot poets." 'Pinekney" J came from C. C. Pinekney. an old time , Southern statesman. "Bentou" is from Tom Benton. "Stunrt" is the family name of old Major Pinchhack's wife, and Piuck nev Benton Stuart Pinchback is a son of old Major Pinchback, of Holmes county, Mississipi, a white planter of wealth sin 1 in fluence, and one of the best men that ever breathed." A Peculiarity. The Southern negro is very sensitive a> j to his name. He allows no reference to it j whatever. The possessor of au historic or | even a popular name ignores the feet that any one but himself ever possessed it. and ! and it is neither pleasant or safe to refer to it A case in point: At a saloon last ; night I>uff Green, a Virgiuia negro, array ed like Solomon in all his glory, was lean ing over the mahogany liar, toying play- | fully with his "ice water.' I'm from Vir giuny. sah, an' my name's Green. Duff Green and don' yer forgit it," he replied to an inquiry from a bystander. At the same counter, a lank cadaverous creature, whose eyes wvre poems of sadness and his face an rpic of baaness intetrolated "|any relation of old Ihiff Green, of Tennessee.'' Imme diately there was trouble, and th6 colored delegate was in for a 6ght. We did not "propose to be insulted by any man. white or black." he explained to a friend who asked tl# cause of the trouble. Ben i ton Clay, of Kentucky, a noa-delegate, bat I with the shiniest of hats, pretended not to see a parallel between Blaine and Henry Clay, for he affected not to kuow who the latter was. • Other Men. But these are mere special types of the uegro character in convention. The ma jority of them are sensible men. Many are men of prominence. Take that class and they do not recognize that they are handi capped by even the most ardent of the white politicians of ihe North. It is impos sible to get up a discussion of the subject, for they cannot realize that they are ig I nored. They attribute disappointments of that kind to the logic of political event? and not to race prejudice. You cannot make a man like Harvey, of Mississippi, Lynch, of the same State, Demos, of Louisiana, little Wright, of Alabama, or Jere Haralson, of the same State, understand that the color of their skin figures at all. They are all intelligent—some have wealth—many ar® orators born aud bred,' and mere race jioli tics never enters into their heads. A <iood Word for Democrats. Perhaps one of the most sensible colored men on the ground is Senator Drmos, of l/ouisiana. He is another who believes that the colored mau should not ask noc accept anything on account of race. He believes that any man born on the soil should !>e re garded as an American pirre and simple aud the color of his skin ignored. ' We do not believe in the sentiment,' said the Sena tor. that we are a uew race of people pro jetted into American politics by the war or by the efforts of the Republican party. We fought for our freedom and enfranchisement; we were not dejtend ent upon anybody but ourselves, for that. You cannot make an intelligent colored man at the South more angry,except to call him a "nigger," than by assuming as a fact in his presence that he owes his freedom to the Republican party per se. We owe our freedom to the fate of war—the war was forced by our own people, and the great tnople of the North fought it out and we iclped them. 1 have inanv Democratic friends who fought as hard for the cause which resulted in our freedom as did the Republicans, and I want theui to have their share of credit."

St. Joseph, Mo., June 7.—The report of a desperate encounter which occurred on Pat lielvin'e farm, half a mile east of this city, yesterday, is brought toll» county offi cers this eveiling. John Hall's cattle broke into l>evine's raspbern patch and wen- de stroying the vines. The family set the dogs on the cattle, and Hall's hired man, John Swatnpley, shot one of the dogs. Divine then went over and became involved in a row with Swatnpley. A tight ensued, and L>evine's daughter, Mary, went to a <si>«t h<*r father. Strampley forced h^r into a room in the house, locked the door, and proceeded to choke her, whereupon Devine seized ai| ax, forced the door open, and with this weapon assaulted Swatnpley.

This is regarded as much lietter authority than Congressman Dorsheimer, of New York, who reported upon here Ray that Mr. Dana had called upon Mr. Tilden and learned that he had fully made up hi*inind to de cline to be a candidate. The value of Mr. Kandall a opinion in this matter lies in his known close relations with Mr. Tilden, and his statement was made to-day without ((ualification to several members of Congress.

Blaine, of Maine Receives the News of His Nomination at Chicago. The Factory Bells and Whistles of Augusta Sound In Honor of the Candidate. The Nominee Makes a Speech in Which He Says Some Very Pretty Compliments. Aiuista, Me., Juue 7.—When the new* of the nomination was brought Mr. Blaine, he was quietly swinging in hi.s hatnmoek miller a spreading apple tree and sitting abound him were Mrs, Blaine and two of f&r daughters, Miss Stanwood (Mrs. Blaine's sister), Miss Dodge, Mr. and Mrs. Herman, Miss Manley and Miss Johnson. •"I did not expect a definite result so soon," said Mr Blaine, "but the anxiety in regard to the nomination is over, at least" To Mr. Sprague, editor of his home paper, who at the moment put in an ap pearance, he said: "Well, the biggest liar in the country cannot say I schemed, or dictated, or traded or had anything to do with this nomination or con vention. I have asked no delegate to vote for me,have written to no man, not even Mr. Manly, or Mr. John L. Stevens, or Mr Bigelow. or my friend Herman here, to no one have I said one word in any way, man ner or shape that can, in any way, be con strued to he a bid or a move toward this nomination." The Klr»t. The first congratulatory dispatch receive! by Mr. Bluiue was from General Cullis, ot New York, and was sent before the finil vote was taken. It was as follows: To James G. Blaine: Allow me to congratulate vou on your nomination. Securities in Wall street ad vance in proportion as your vote increases. Turning to your correpondent Mr. Blaine said: "Tuis is good enough to scud Mr , Arthur." Mr. Blaine and his entire family seemed just as quiet and unconcerned as ever; but as the crowd cl' friends increased and the streets around began to be crowded with village folk, shouting their hu/.zahs and pushing to get the best view of the happy party on the lawn, the children began to Show signs of excitement. Then Miss Dodge caught sound of the church bells as .they began to ring. Shrieking WliUtle*. This was followed by shrieks of steam whistles from factories and steamers on the river. The noise, as it increased, began to relax the severe strain which the entire family have held over their feelings, and one by one they grew more animated. A brighter light came to the eye and the voices were raised a little high er. The air was filled with shouts of joy as tlio throngs grew thicker on the streets The guns and bells from Hallo well and Gardiner, two aud six miles down the river, joined in the general diu. News paper corres|jodent» began to make their way along to the party on the lawn, and Mr Blaine himself began to show the effeftf> of the tremendous excitement as v the crowd £rew ' larger ami the noise grew in volume. It >cemed as though every workshop aud store had emptied itself into the streets, and even hotly was excited and jubilant. The Democrats caught the excitement and wen inclined to fed that the selection of an Au gusta citizen was at least an honor, ami they were willing to join the glad celebra tion going on. Congratulatory dispatches i kept coming in as last as the facilities of the telegraph ofliee could receive them. Kxtrn Operator*. Kxtra operators aud a large force of mes sengers were put on. The local train from Gardiner and Hallowell brought in all that could stand on it. The 2 o'clock train also brought crowds. At fv.'JO n procession was formed in the square down town. Headed bv a brass band, they inarched over the city and to Blaine's house, where the)* began a celebration they kept up the remainder of the night. Among the dispatches received were the congratulations of President Arthur, Sen ator Logan and Senator llawley.
