Amor; 8F111,4:411m*.,, of Massachu setts, clotb.ed.with all the diplomatic powers with which the R•rother .of the Sun. can in vest him; , the other is the effort put forth by a wing oftbe grea t Democratic party to make Ft/Limos P.. CHASE, 'an unchanged chief of the abolitionparty, their candidate for the Presidency. In both cases extremes have' met..,, , A. very few; years . ago outside bar barians, like Mr. BIIRLINGAHE had no rights, which thetrien of - CliknaNipre bound to respect; and at a period quite as recent; the Democracy loudly:tund bitterly denOunced Mr. CHASE as an incendiary and a wretch 4eservivig of nothing-hut. a halter.' But the Outside barbarians have not changed—they are what they always w ere; and so is Mr. CHASE. The change „ . is on the ,other,side. Both the Chinese - and the Democracy have been so effectUally pummelled of late that they are glad to creep under the skirts of those whom they once despised. 'Bien the poor negro, who'naturally and properlyll feels grateful tq Mr. CHASE, IS to:be Date- 1 ly invited to enter the Democratic fold and be received into full fellowship as it man and a brother. But this last v thing is not likely to work smoothly. The Chinese empire is not, like our Deniociacy, a many -headed monster; therefore there is no difficulty , in the case:of= the Yankee embassador; but to foibid Dem. ocratie spouters to pour out maledictions again -Abolitionists and "niggers"—which would have to be done if Mr. Cass - is to. . . -be the candidate, audit' the votes of. colored 1 men are to be begged in his support—would be to strike them dumb. ,They have no other ideas and they have learned , no other language. TO stick to the party and hate "niggeis" or "nagers t ", as the word is vs pottilikittinotinted. lit the paitY, constitute the - simi total of the principles for which the great ass of its voters"nhave for years con -1 teidedl , To ask such men as these to fsne about; and vote ftir a man who Was a rank Abolitionist in the. palmy days of tnobs and brick-bats, and to frtiternizewith"dirkies," and draw them int 9.,, the party ranks by flat teries, and walk arm in arm with them to the polls, is to ask too much. Those fel ' lows Will stampede by thousands rather than do anything of the kind. That the most potential leaders of the part3 t jliad everything arranged foi bringing Mr: irxsz Out is beyond question, and it is a very signicant fact. Even Isatan RYND , ERS, the leader of the "subterranean" band of New York roughs, had thrown his weight, -which is not a little—into that scale; but there is a stiff-necked generation outside of that very democratic metropolis who would as soon give up their right to vote as to give up the luxury of cursing and, abasing colored people; and those leaders are now trembling and hesitating as they hearl loud growls from that quarter. They are in dilemma They are determined not to take PENDLETON; they are afraid to take CirAsn, and now it looks as if they would be constrained to ,compromise by milting upon ANDREW Jonnsox. which will be the end' of that thing to which many well .. .meaning men still fondly cling 'as the Democratic party Of course they have no love for him, and can place no reliance in hint. All his antecedents—his' forme; tieree . : and loud denunciations "of . their rebel friends, his subsequent abandonment of the principles upon which he was elected by the 'leans, his indefensible moral charac r intemperance and his follies—are as to render it imPoisible either• bq sr ; ,respect ,him. No, enthusiasm can ted in his behalf, -except among the makers of contraband whisky. The party will feel that he is not one of theinselves— that he is doubly, a renegade, having left them to becOtne" a fierce' raateal, then be-. trayed the-Men :who'olevated him to office, and was then, for the lack of a bettei• man, set up to be their national standard-bearer, without even' pretending to have returned to the Demneratic fold. ' Everything must be inverted if JOHNSON is to be the candidate. Instead of the party 1 giving, him a 'platform to , stand npon,_ht, will give one to the party. His "policy," must be taken as the principles of the party. Negroes, and national bonds, and green baeks are all to be left lying about loose. Denacicratate" be Sure, will be left free to curse the negrO as heartily as they please, and denounce the bond-holder for 'demand: ing gold. But the bond-holder will be left equally free to pocket his gold;, for the votes of the Democraer'fai ' ANDREW 'JORNSON will not affeettlim; and the negroes of the reconstructed Stet& will vote on as if no thing had happened, even should thetandi ffato of the Democracy triumph. If the party in opposition to the Repub licans should liclobfiged to; take M. JOHN sotc as their standard-bearer there will from that moment be no Democratic , party.' It; ; will be the JOIINSON party, the whisky par: ty, or, posSibly; they iney dub it the Con aervative party, a word which in this coun try means opposition to progress of every kind. Jortaliox has been a plague and.a nuisance to our party; but he will' be the death of that one if they take him as their Presidential'andidate. Of course lie will be overwhelmingly beaten; but that will not make the surrenderbf the party to him any the less fatal. ' ' - 11111111- 'ATHLETIC THIMBLE RIGS.

The result is but • another lesson which should.. cure the , verdant of that unsuspecting confidence with whiCh they j fancy they are beating: their l money on the j beseman. Will such people never perceive the transparent truth that horse-races, boat races, prize-fights and all other "sports" of j that kind are no longer, as a general thing, I fair and honest triaLsof muscular eudurance and scientific training, but have become traps in whichthe sharps catchthe fiats and Irob them of their money? ..We do not make these observatiocs as espeeially appli cable to the case at Philadelphia yesterday, but as holding true, generally, of these "sporting events." • Why these things should thus have de generated, frOm the simple contests of muscle and training which they originally =were, and which they still delusively purport to be, into the disreputable exhibitions of humbug, deception and fraud which they are usually in fact, is a question much easier to explain than to account for the readiness with which thepublic more and more suffers.itself to be gulled. There have always been , sharpers, to.live 'by their wits, since society has been organized, and the buiinesi , becomes more profitablemith each revolving year ' , but we are at a loss to account for the increasing eagerness with which the public lends itself, swindle-after swindle, to the desiins of the Greeks, Who "put up" ihnse affairs. We do not piopose to accomplish _ a reform of these things, nor even to attempt it. That can only be effected by the folly working its 'own cure—when experiencellhall convince people that no "event" of this kind is ever permitted to come, in good faith, to an hon est decision, if it can be evaded by fraud or frustrated by violence, Then, when there aro no, more fools to be parted from their money in this way, the sharpers will be thrown upon their wits to invent new [ methods of fleecing those who are now credulous believers in the fairness of "sporting" athletes. , _ The failure of the Democratic party in its recent Convention to place in nomina tion candidates in opposition to the strong Republican ticket put forward, should prove no, incentive to the loyal voters of Allegheny county to drop into apathy and inertness. While the opposition are disorgan ized, uncertain how to think or what to do, void of opinion until some is manufactured for them at the forthcoming National Con vention, the Republicans should be cement ing in solid mass to crush -them theyery moment their heads are shown above the . sea of uncertainty into which the, leaders 1, have plunged them. Now is the golden time for organization. ' Duet wait and hes itate before taking action. Withorganiza- \ tion in every ward, borough and township , entered into at once'while the Democracy flounder and are bewildered, overwhelming 1 Lvictory cannot be- prevented in autumn. Let Grant clubs be formed at once; and let every voter, old and young, enrol his'narne 1 as a member, to do service' in the common . I cause of Freedom and, Justice. The oppo- I sition is weak and powerlew, and if the I present opporiunity is embraced by, the,Re publicans for active and effective organiza tion, and . solid- work, .. can' be kept so during the whole campaisn, and the pledge given at,Chicago for ten thousand majority in old Allegheny will be more than fully i , redeemed. ' - REPEAL must be the great watchword of the Dem ocratic party. Repeal of every unconstitutional act, oppressive upon the people, in every state where such oppresslun now reigns, and the abroga tion oral' forced Congressional. Constitutions. ' So much for the Pittsburgh Post, of yes terday. The quotation must be taken as a Correct statement of the opinions of the managers of that journal. We do not dare to say, since the Democracy of the county re pndiated our neighbor the other day, that it also expresses the opinions of the party. The inference is rather that it does not. The Boston Post, for example, a joninal which deservedly enjoys the highest contl •dence of its political friends, holds to a very different doctrine. 'lt l odenies that the pres ent reconstruction is to be distntbed by its patty ; It ridicules the, idea that • 1 / 4 1ead insti tutions CFI be revived by the, most powerful -party that ever had an existence, or that a nation ,likely to attempt to retrace steps which the law of prOgress declares impos sible." :The same 'journal proceeds As it regards reconstruction, that le, restoration theDemocraticparty is earnestly in favor of it, anl has beenfrotn the beginning.

Since Reed's arrest upwards of fifty letters have been received and 'detain ed at the Postoffice, containing money di rected to the so-called "National Managing Committee." The resignation of Mr. Clark; Chief of the. Printing Bureau of the Treasury De partment, on Wednesday, was occasioned by the fact that the House Retrenchment Committee has lately been investigating matters in his Bureau, and found every— thingln a deplorable condition and affairs badly. mixed up. The Committee were not at all pleased that one of the most im portant bureaus of the Government should be managed so loosely, and , hence they commenced - framing a report to, be pre-'. seated to Congress, recommending ftinum- I ber of very radical changes. Mr. Clark, hearing of this, became alarmed, an d at once tendeM his resignation. 'His remov al has been urged for, a long time,, but for some unaccountablereason it -could not be effected. _ The liratiorial Intelligeneir had , another studied attack on Secretary McCulloch yes- , terday, urging the, President t,o remove him. The , article asserts that McCulloch beeame - somewhat alarmed at the prospect of his removal, and on Monday summoned Chief Justice Chase post haste from Rich mond, in order that his influence with the . Prealdent might: be used' to have him (Mc- Culloch) retained in office; that Chase re sponded at once, and on Tuesday. evening did call upori the President for that purpose. This 'article excites, considerable comment in political circles; principally from the fact that the Intelligencer has been recognized as the President's organ. In urging McCul loch's removal, the editorial, closes as fol-' lows: "We tell the President frankly and earnestly that in this matter for him to de. lay is to defy public sentiment. He cannot afford to do so, and expect either from the present or future generations the applause be might otherwise fairly claim. It was the presence and association of such.indl tiduals as McCulloch and Rollins about him which gave 'strength to the impeach ment movement it could never otherwise have commanded. It was the general dis gust with relation to these and other offi cials, whose names will readilyoccur to the public, which interrupted the warm dew of personal sympathy, the natural uprising of popular indignation at an unjust and in decent accusation, which, but for these3m-. pediinefits would„in a week, have crushed impeachment and its authors, to dust. Of this topic, we repeat, we have long health, ted_to speak, but if we, shall have by the ,President's , non-action to make our choice betWeeri a regardfor his feelings • and our duty.to convictions and demand of the con servative masses of the land, we shall not be long in making our selection.”. Col. Roberts, of. Pittsburgh, was before :the Senate Committee on Postal Affairs yesterday, and delivered an argument in , support of bridging the Ohio river with not less than five • hundred feet spans. The Committee have come to no conclusion in regard to the matter, but as a majority are interested in the leading Western rail roads, it is presumed that they will report adversely to "long spans." Senator Mor ton is confident, however, that the long span bill can be 'carried through the Sen ate, though the Committee should report against it. , The first business in the, r ouse was Mr. Binghanis ' motion to reconsider the vote by which the bill allowing clerks In 1 the different departments twenty per cent. additional salary was passed. This was agreed to, and was promptly followed up by another , motion from Mr. Bingham to layj the bill upon the table, and. ir was agreed to by a vote of sixty-eight ayes to sixty-four nays, the Democrats all voting in the negative.
