There is now a gentleman in atka who was in southern Illinois during the first years of the war when John A. Logan spent all his time and energy in his efFort to en roll men to take part with the Con federacy. He had already collected nearly a thousand when he was sum moned to Springfield, and his prin ciples were changed on receipt of a commission in the Federal army. The republicans embrace every op portunity to vilify Davis but t hey take Longstreet to their bosoms and deify Logan ! FOR Till: STATE CON VENTION'. The delegates from Putnam to the state convention go entirely lin Irammeled, and pr?!'erence for no candidate was made an issue on the floor. They are composed of some o our best citizens and were receiv ed by acc'amation on presentation by a committee. Statements said to have been made by (iov. Drew as to his opposition to IJloxham were denied by h's friends here on authority said to be good, and in case he is nomi raled (which is a far-fetched supposi tion) we hope the denial will hold live. For the candidate who goes before a convention with the asser tion that he is not bound by the ac tion of the convention, would be de feated in advance. It wi'l be a mis fo true to the party if any one is rominated who cannot command the unqualified support of both Drew and Iiloxham for each has a large following in Florida, and the work of democrats must not be confined to a simple vote if we would win in this state. Our best wishes will at tend the work of the convention, and our every energy will be. exert ed for the success of the ticket it shall put in nomination. THE STATE A X I ) N A T I ( X A 1 1 CAM I'AIGX. The nomination of lilaine and Lo gan will revive all the issues which the masses of our people, north and south, have been trying to forget. The national campaign will be one of battle cries, and through all the din of conflicting opinions will be heard the keen crack of the party lash. Have the republicans no men of pure lives and clean records that , they should select the sin-encrusted lilaine and the bitter Logan to bear the banner of a civil struggle in a peaceful war? Will the busy mass es allow the ghouls of past hatred to rake forever in the ashes of past bitterness that they may revive old discords and perpetuate forgotten differences? The issue is one to over-shadow all personal considera tions, and we must be prepared in Florida to contest the state with an opposition in full control of ample funds and every weapon suggested by long experience, brilliant intel lect, sound judgment and utler dis regard of any scruples as to means. In such a course we must see1oit that our own forces are thoroughly united, that our leader is above re proach and that all our engines of destruction may be concentrated on the enemy in front. Xo jars or bickerings among ourselves sho.ild be allowed to distract our attention from the one absorbing necessity of defeating the republicans. Even now our leader is being selected, and on the choice may depend the weal or woe of our state. Send good men who will be reasonable throughout i the exciting struggle at Pensacola, and leave them free to exercise a judgment improved by all the knowl edge to be gained on the immediate field of action. And the leader must be one whose influence will harmonize and consol idate as well as one fitted to com mand. Neither IJloxham nor Drew can be nominated without exciting feuds in our own ranks. Judge Mitchell has declined to accept the post of danger under any circum stances. We still have some half dozen others who would fill all the requirements, and among them Per ry and Pasco take front rank. Uoth are fully equal to the occasion and with either we could begin the cam paign with every assurance of sue- cess, in expressing our preierence for (len. Perry we arc swayed by no pei.sonal motive, but only by the conviction formed after careful thought that he would be strongest with our people, and most stern and unyielding in his devotion to our in terests. We must have a revision of our constitution or the democra cy will be committed by sufference to the defence of republican iniqui ty, and this Perry will give us. No compromise of principle will be tol erated in our ranks, and Florida has had enough of dictatorial rule. (Jive us Perry or Pasco; but above all in VH I S A NEW COXSTTTL'TIOX. COirNTY PAMPHLETS. We all remember that our board ot county commissioners was cen sured by many because it failed to find law or ireccdent for an appro priation towards the printing of a painohlet advertising Putnam coun ty. The publisher especially urged ! the action of Orange county but our commissioners gave money from their own pockets and refused to in vest the public funds in such an en terprise. We extract the following from the general presentment of the Or ange county grand jury: "Tn the matter of the so-called ( ) range County Pamphlet, we regard it as a very good advertisement of such sections of our county and such individuals as contributed funds for its publication, and as such we make no objection, but the payment of five hundred dollars by the board of county commissioners for its publi cation we consider unprecedented, without authority of law and with out consideration, and it is the sen t'ment of this grand jury that they should be severely censured for all such unlawful acts." ItliAIXE AMI CO.VKLING. Why They Have Not Spoken in Eigh teen Wars. Mr. Blaine's quarrel with Roscon Conk ling dates back to 1800. It originated with Senator Conkling's refusal to yield the floor to Mr. Blaine, Mr. Conkling re marking that he "did not wish to have anything to do with the member from Maine, not even to yield him the floor." Mr. Blaine replied with a promptness and vim which showed that he fully re turned Mr. Conkling's animosity. "As to the gentleman's cruel sarcasm," he said "I hope it will not be too severe. The contempt of that large-minded gen tleman is so wilting, his haughty disdain, his grandiloquent swell, his majestic, super-eminent, overpowering turkey Sob bler strut has lieen so crushing to myself and all the memlers of this house that I kno.w it was an act of the greatest temer rity for me to venture on a controversy with him. But, sir, I know who is re sponsible for this. I know that within the last five weeks, as memlers of the house will recollect, an extra strut has characterized the gentleman's learing. It is not his fault. It is the fault of an other. That gifted and satirical writer, Theodore Tilton, of the New York Inde jxmdent, sent some weeks recently in this city. His letters, published in that paper, embraced, with many serious statements, a little jocose satire, a part of which was that the mantle of the late Winter Davis had fallen upon the mem ber from New York. The gentleman took it seriously, and has given his strut an additional pomposity. The resem blance is great it is striking: Hyperion to a Satyr; Thersites to Hercules; mud to marble: dunghill to diamond: a singed cat to a Bengal tiger; a whining puppy to a roaring lion ! Shade of the mighty Davis, forgive the almost profanation of that jocose satire." Mr. Blaine and Mr. Conkling have not ppoken to one another since. Some Foolish Coincidences. New York World (Dem.). A coincidence hunter calls our undi vided attention to the fact that the name of "Blaine" is composed of six letters; that he was nominated on Friday (six letters), the sixth day of the week, the sixth day of the month and the sixth month of the year. Yes. and there are six letters in '"humbug," six in "defeat" and six in "change." F. C.

The Timks will enter upon the new year stronger and more prosperous than ever be. fore in its history more widely read and inioted, mon- heartily eonMH-uded, and more fiercely criticized, with u more eomplete or ganization, and an able skoIY of eoutributors and with the same independence avid fearless ness that has made it successful and powerful in the Oiist. The 1'imks lias no party to follow, no candi dates to advance, but will meet every issue, ns it has ever done, with consistent dwvotion to t he rijrht, to honest government, and the pub lie welfare. And, while maintaining its posi tion as t he lead intr journal of Philadelphia, i( will aim to in- continually in the advanc) in nit. that can add value to a newspaper. The value of it newspn ter is not in itsnijr.r display, but. in the intellitrence and caro, the conciseness and freshness with which it is edited. Thk Times sjiends lavishly f r newg from all parts of the world, but all its din patches are carefully edited ami condensed, in order to trive thi' complete news of the day in the most concise and att rneti vefchape, and with it a larpe ariety of entertaining and instruc tive readintr.
