TIIK DKM0CIUT10 bTATK CONVENTION
of Tennesseo met nn Thursday in Nash
ville. It rc-iiomliinled Gov. llrown,
tbu present incumbent, by ivcclainntlon,
rami .passed resolutions declaring for
Greeley and llrown and expressing tlio
dusiro that tho national democrntio con-
vontlon at llnltimora muffo no nomina
tions. An i.vtkknatio.vai. lkctukku of tha
East objects to the I'rco love and social the
ory questions being tacked on to the labor
problem, scenting danger to tho interna
tional from the union of tho two, ''even in
' these ideas have rotted tho noblu move
ments of the female suffragists; for tliuir
infections are us ilevaling and malignant
'ns Hie deadly upas.'
.
"An Intelligent and observing gentle
man," says the St. Louis 'Time, "who
has been in Southern Illinois since th Cin
cinnati convention, reports that he found
tho Germans ot that suction unanimous
for Greeley and Rrown. They are not to
be led away from their duty to the conn-
tryjand themsolvcs,' byj any trifling side
'issiie'wliich is in no manner pertinent to
'tbu great campaign ahead. Tha intelll
'gont Germans do not fall to tee light
'through the dark clouds that now hang
1 over ih, and that light was kindled by
' the nomination of Greoloy and llrown
1 In all southern Illinois theie was found
'but one man to say a word against the
' honest candidate of the people, and that
'man was a postmaster.''
10" ''Madam,'' said n husband to Ills
young wife in a little altercation which
hwill spring up in the best regulated fami
lies, "when a man and his wife have quar
reled and each considers tho other at fault,
which of the two ought to advance toward
reconciliation ?'' "The hotter nalurcd and
wier of the two," said tho wile, putting
up her mouth for a kiss, which v.-ti given
with unction.
A Special Dispatch to tho Missouri
'Democrat' of Friday, from New JYorl:,
contain this ridiculous twaddle: "It is
'rumored that Tweed nud his. friends will
'urge tlint no democratic nomination bo
'made, on the ground tliHt they will bo
'more likely to v-capu punishment undor
' Greeley than under Grant." Tho wishes
of "Tweed and his friends" will havo about
as much to do with tiio nomination no tho
wishes of Grant and his friends, and uu
intelligent public would like to know what
Grant or Greeley either as president, will
havo to do with tlio punhhmtit of the
New York city officials.

tho question Is very easily solved.
Tho ' Times, has a right to tuo its col-

Your correspondent, a-, usual, attended
Rev. Dr. Nichols' Presbyterian Church,
corner of Sovonleenth and Locust, last
Sunday evening, and was witness to a
$19,000 collection. After the close of the
services, Dr. Nichols paid that after pro
nouncing tho benediction be wished the
congregation to remain seated for a few
minute"; at which lime ho explained that
thoro was a debt of ovor S18,000 duo by
tho church, and that he expected to raise
the whole amount at that lime. He than
went on to say that ho had mado cut u
list, as follows: Fivo to pay 1,000 each
throo S700, ten $500, and so on down to
$5 00. He then, after explaining his
plan, asked thtw) who would subscribo
$1,000 to raise thuir hand. In' less than
two minutes tho $1,000 libt was full, and
in the course of half tin hour $18,300 had
been raised. Dr. X. then stated that the
interest and other expenses amounted to
$700, which amount was immediately sub
scribed by D. Nicholson, Esq., tho well-
known inorchant, which (.mount mado tho
grand total of $l;000,tho largest sum over
takon at a .single church collection in St
Louis.
Tho city tho present week has been un

Montgomery Illulr has written tlie fol
lowing letter on the Cincinnati convention,
ami tun liituro course ot the. democratic
party. It is addressed, to a prominent
democrat in llalllinoro:
Witihlnxluii, .May Till, 1ST.'
Wo will have to tako Greoloy or
Grant, and wo will take Grooley, reluc
tantly, of course, but not the less cer
tainly. And ho will ho the more certaiiy
ui uii-uiioii, ucuitucu uiu wuiiiuui an uu iiui
wish to embrace at first. As for their run
ning a candidate of tholr own, that would
be both disastrous und disgraceful. Thoy
all give in their adhesion to tlie Cincin
nati convention, and tho most obstreper
ous of Greeley's opponents hud their can
didate before that convention, Mr. Voor
bees, fur example, was loud in hisadvocacy
of Judgo Davis; and the World
was earnost in pressing Adams.
Now thoro cortainly can be
be no groatcr departure from principle in
Biipportiug Greoloy tlinii thero would bo
in supporting Davis or Adams, or any
other radical. Thero can be, in fact, no
motive assigned for the support of ot.e of
these, men and the refusal to support
either of thu others, but meru personal
preference. This is not statesmanship ; it
I' mere caprice, if not hoinething worse,
which man cun indulge in without thu loss
of public confidence. Kor my own part,
1 go for tho movement initialed at Cincin
nati lo arrest tlio further progress of md-
Icalism. It is tho only practical way of
arresting. As for running in u straight
democratic ticket between Greeley and
Grant, that is a dodgo that will not bo al
lowed to succeed. That can ho done only
in Iko small field of locul politics",
whero the contest between the real
aspirants is personal, nnd hti.s be
como embittered. Rut the contest between
tho Republican and Dauiocraliu parties
lias always been a scctionnl contest, one
party representing tlio North and tho
other the South ; and whonover the con
test returns to that character, tlm Republi
can success is assured by tho consus, It is
only by dividing thu numerous North and
allying Itself with tho moro liberal divi
sion, that tho Democracy renrojontlnir the
South can hope for tho recovery of tho
rlL'Ut of soir-government lor its section.
The moment that tho Democracy stall
set up for itself, tho Nortlu will cloio its
ranks again ; nnd tho only effect would bo
to sacritlco tho loaders in tho Liberal party
who had attempted to help us. This would
disgrace us, und so help to defeat us, not
only now out uerouitor.
ur courso tbnro will bo some lioncsi
Dotnocrats who will not regard tho subject
In this light, and who will prefer to. stand
by their guns, etc.; but thonoisost follows
will be those who aro in tbe pay
of the administration Chandler ald
recently, I learn on good authority, that
there would be a straight Democratic
Dr. Greeley. Yes, 1 think it more
crcditablo to be nominated on tho sixth
than on tho first ballot. It Is an evidence
that our friends had bottom, and that
their bottoms (lain t lull out.

Reporter. You will probably carry tlio
soutn acu west, .Mr. ureeicy, anu .Massa
chusetts Dr. Greeley (quickly.) No, Massa
chusetts will go for Grant. I feel quito
sure of it.
Roportcr. Grant might decline tlio
Philadelphia nomination.
Dr. Greeley (smiling.) It is two Into.
Ho ought to have done it six weeks ago.
Now it is too late.
Reporter. If Grant declines, tho Phil
adelphia men might nomlnato say Colfax
for president and Wilson for vico-presi-dent.
Dr. Greeley (again smiling.) In that
caso tho campaign might bu a very Inter
esting campaign. Rut tho time has past
for such a ticket. It's too lato.
