anxiously turned towards Cook. county,
in,..which . Chicago is situated, as Illinois
was stipposedi,to settle the Presidential
question, and Cook county with its 92
delegates to the State Convention, was to
decide the complexion of that body, which
mts on the 19th inst. The Cook County
Convention met on Monday. The Br...s.rxE
and WASHBVRIC man were in a majority,
and as they proposed to deny the Gttarr
men any'repeesentation in the State Con
yentionilthe litter bolted, and held a
separate ?;onvention. The result is two
sets of delegates to the State Convention.

what the result will be, but from all ap

tion for him.
Jr may person imagines that TILDEN
does not intend to make add take the
Democratic nomination, or that he has
any plans which took to substituting any
friend for that honor, they will wake op
some day with the knowledge that they
have made a great mistake. The Triluae
is authority fat a reported conversation
which took tracb between Mr. TrumN
and a sell-known lawyer, sVliore relations
with the Gramercy Park statesman are
most confldetti4l,• which was communi
cated to another law 4 Yer not now .in any
political organization. Mr. TiLnot is
asserted to have said that be would be a
candidate before the Democratic Conven
tion, no 'matter who might be named at
Chicago by the Republican patty; tha
while he had not formerly intended to be
a candidate, except in the case of the
nomination otGeneral GRANT 4tChim g o,
be had resolved to be /mein any event.,
and that Mr. PAYEE, of Ohio, would be
' his choice for Vice-Presideut. Evidences
are overwhelming that Tr LtDEN intends to
force his nomination at Cincinnati and
the Democratic party cannot help itself.
THE Pret4 offers some very sensible ad
vice to the rnalcanterit l s and self-sufficient
gentlemen who recently met at St. Louis
to regul4te the affairs of the Republican
party. They are warned that "a disre
gard of the unwritten law becomes a
mere bagatelle when compared with
handing over the Government to a party
whose controlling spirits , have amply de 7
rnonstrated that when it suits their pur,
pume they will violate any law, written or
unwritten. In the important National
contest now opening there will no middle
ground. If the members of to day's con
vention allow their opposition to GRANT
is a candidate before the Republican con
vention to extend as GRANT as a candi
date before the peOple they will, citify en
roll themselves in the long list of Repub
lican deserters who, failing to control
their own party, have accepted political
obscurity in the ranks of the Democracy.',

fact that there is nothing to criticise or

'era! Grant, because no committee, no
combination, no bureau, .no patron
age, no money has been enlisted for
him, but all these have been arrayed
against hitn, with a systematized and
arranged combination of many news
papers besides. The sole support
General Grant has received has Come
from spontaneous judginent - and
action. The ex immon sense of men ,
with no purpose Save the success of
the Republican party and the safety
of the country has espoused General
Grant. If anything else t 1.112 support
ed him Ido not know It. Many per
sona write me to know where they
can get a Grant document. . Sure'
enough, where are they? Not a dom..'
meat or circular has ever been sent
out, or printed for Grant that ` I have
herd of; not a clerk has been em
ploj•ed even to write a letter fur him.
Any other candidate would hake been
buried out of sight by thm time.
The strength of General Grant and
his hold on the regard and confi
dence of the country has never shown
more conspicuously than in the fact
that, pummelled and buffetted om
every side, not only by the wholo.
Democratic press, but by the unheard
of instrumentalities which have been
resorted to for his competitors, yet,
without organized effort for him, he
distances thehole field. No other !
c ti
man in either party could have sur
vived such ' a nstant concentrated '
fire..A few mo hs ago no man could
wink so hard. as of to see that at a
national convention of Republicans
held then no other name would be
seriously canvassed.
So far as any change has been pro
duced, what has caused it and what
does it show ? The condition of the
country ,and the perils of the future
are all the same. General Grant is the
same, his competitors are the same.
What, then, has caused any doubt or
Avidion of sentiment now which did
not exist then ? Nothing but the
enormous activities and persuasions,
conibinations ? maAinery, and push
whieh has been put work to get up
counter sentiment:, Had every can
didate done only what General Grant
has one and left. the office to seek
hini, do you think be would care to
ask tally Tan what the Chicago con
vention would probably do ? 'Why,
the question 'void be settled now as
clearly as it will after the convention
adjourns. The whole question, if any
question remains, is whether official
power and patronage, electioneering
politicians and money can prevail.
,against the conviction and conscience
of an overwhelming majority of
thoughtful earnest Republicans; The
prevailing ideabf the canvass against
General Grant is most extraordinary.
It is little less than a menace not to
support him- if a majdrity see fit to
nominate him. The party which ,
allows itself , to be bullied by a
minority deserves the fate of a Gov
ernment which allows itself to , be
bullied by a mob. Neither deserves
to live and peither will live.
Can 64zieral Grant carry New,
York? Irilmy belief, without a doubt,
and by a larger majority than any
other man - could obtain. Can he,
carry any Southern State? I believe
he can, and my advises on this point
are the greatest marvel of the can
vase. After the South was made
solid and the Republicans there aban
doned:and trampled - upon, it seemed
iMpossible for any Republican to re
ceive a majority or to have it count
ed in anyt Southern State, but men
not. likibr to be deceived in at least
four. Southern States now describe a
condition of things there which gives
me great confidence that General
Grant will receive-,a
,majority vote
and a Vote backed 'by a &termina
-1 Lion which will make it hard to choke
or vitiate the count in several South
ern States."
P/111-ADLLPDIA, May 10.
The great political event of the past
week, has been the pretended "revolt"
as it is called, of the Pennsylvania delega
tion to Chicago. If it was intended to
"point .a moral," this flurry would fur
nish an excellent illustration of the unre-
liability of newspaper reports. Your
readers will do well not to pin their faith
upon all the statements. made in the city
journals. When the enterpising reporter
isn't inves'.ig.tting facts he is manufaitur
ing canards. Tho life of a reporter isn't
a happy one—he must bring some 'grist
to the mill, or his occupation's_ gone. So
the invention of I.ensational items is a ne
cessity, and wboi desperate he draws
upon his iina;4inatinn for his facts. The
reporters have been, in their element the
last wet k. They started the , story of a
revolt ,in the Philadelphia delegation
against Grant, and the newsy apeis havo
been _full of pretenod interviews which
never took place; and of declarations on
the,part of delegates which were never
uttered. It's no use trying to "shako f '
one of these interviewers. The safest way
is to disclose all your opinions and frank:
ly tell your intentions. Because, if
you persistently refuse to say anything;
'they will put words iu your mouth, and
.astonisli you with a colunin of your reve-
'The opening races of the Spring , Trot
ting Circuit commenced at the new Hunt
ing Park, near this city, on Tuesday of
list week. Bradford County was well
represented, the entries being L.
Kingsbury's brown gelding Riptou, and
M. Stephens black mare, Josephine. The
newspaper reports say that the_tir-t day's
programme included two races, the . :30
and '2:37 races. For the first event there
were six entries, but at the call of the
judges only four appeared at the., score.
ltipton. a clever-gaited brown gelding,
nine years old, handled by the veteran,
tem.Kingsbury, of Towanda, was made
the favorite in the pools at the odds of
$lO against sli for the field. The 'favor
ite drew the pole, but Price , went away H
with a rush,,iind at the first turn drew to
the inside, Ripton leavibg his feet in bad
style. At the quarter p4e Pike bad
opened a gap of five lengths, Caprice the
same distance in front (!of Harry G., Rip-.
ton being two lengths fourth. Before the
half mile waa reached Riptonhad hecome
well settled, but ho waFt only enabled to
take the second position, Price finally
winning the heat by one and a half
lengths, in 2:40 ; Caprice and Harry G.
distanced. This left but two horses to
settle the dispute, and notwithstandilg
Ripton's showing in the 'first beat ho still
ruled a great favorite. The confidence
was not Misplaced, for ho won the suc
ceeding three heats and' the race in 2:301.
Riptou also won the race on the third
day, the best time beini 2:341.
. .
Josephine did not coins off with such
flying colors, being the sixth in the race
of the second day, and distanced in the
fourth days' race.
At the opening races at Suffolk Park,
l the Bradford County horses did not, win
any heats, and consequently gained no
laurels nor purses. In the first race Rip
ton was second iu the second heat, but
fell behind in the other treats, while Jo
sepuine was distanced. In the second
race, John 0. Ward's Larkin, was fourth
in the first heat. Perhaps they are "lay
ing low" for-heavier purses.
