His name will again be presented to the next Demo cratic national convention for the first office in the gift ot the people, and as he forms one of the small group of re cognized Democratic statesmen, from whom the call is to lie made, the cen tral figure of which is Thomas A. Hendricks, wejbelieve the choice will fall upon him to take the helm of the government and bring the ship of state back to its Democratic moorings.

Dodge City, lias., Sept. 20.- Gov ernor St. John and stall' took charge of the presidential party at Kniporia last night, and put them aboard the .-peciai iraní provided i.r the purpose Cluikson IV. Potter. This gentleman, being a possible ciuidtdate for the vice presidency on the ticket with Mr. Hendrics, becomes an object of interest to the West, lie is thus, described by the Xew York lixpress: Hon. Chiikson X. I'otter was born bi Schenectady iu 1825. He is the son of JMshop Alonso Potter, and grand son of the famous Dr. J'diphalct Xott. of Union college. He Avas iirst a civil engin er, but altrwards studied law, and was admitted to practice in 18-17. and soon rose to the front rank of Iih profession. Inb"()8he was sent to Congress, and has fervi d four terms in ihe house with distinguished abili ty, but to the great regret of his nu merous friends declined a reuomina- tion at the last, election, it is unne cessary to refer to his able services as chairman of the committee which in vestigated the monstrous frauds by w hich Hayes was counted into oilice. lie is a splendid public speaker, a gen tleman in instincts and character and bearing, a man of culture and honor able tame, and above reproach. His name adds to the character and strength of the ticket, and commends it to public support. He was the gen eral dioico of the people and the dele gales to the convention in 1876, bul 'tilden succeeded by a trick in defeat ing his nomination and IVr.'-ini' Robin son on the parly'. He w:is t elect alnow by Tilden partly to add diai acier and strength to the ticket which llobinson's name had awakened, and partly as a compromise to prevent a bolt.
