Hon. Robert J. Walker ' has returned

kational 'Convention n hope of securing
the nomination of •Ge 'eral Hancock, lintl
does not conceal his 'dipappointment atthe
result, and especially ivith the repudiating.
resolution. ' l i
, Seymour is .reporm to say thai the
reason which prevent d his accepting the
nomination was his Pei, °nal promise,to Mr.
Chase that he would/ hot •be a candidate.
After the nomination iwas-made - Chase's
friends absolved him frem his promise and ,
left him free maceept. ; ChaSe sustains the
uction of his friends, an expresses himself
satisfied with the result of the Convention.
In answer to the - que bop, "How do the
New York nomination take?" Andrew
Johnson is reported to ave replied ; "Like
the small pox; d—ed get rid pf."
The, third party Movement receives but
little encduragement, except from the fol
lowers of Johnson, who, having committed
themselves against Grant and,Colfax, and
not being able to 'swallow Blair's revolu
tionary schemes, find themselves Without
1 a- representative iq the pending contest.
They say they would have been satisfied
With Chase and Hancock, or JOhnson and
some one else, but at present - they are
afloat. Quite. a number of this class have
given in their adherence to Grant, among
them it is rumored several members of the
present Cabinet, including' Seward and
Wm. P. White, who was appointed by
Gov. Swan, to the vacancy made in , the
Senate by Reverdy Johnson's resignation,
isot lawyer of Baltinnire. - ,
Some Western Democrats declare that
Seyniour had made a positive promise to
decline - afterreceiving a unanimous'. vote,
and enable them to make 4 speedy nomina
tion of another candidate; with the dele
gations united. . .
The National Convention .of the new
party will be held in 'Cincinnati in Sep
er, it is said, when Chase will be nom
inated fcr President and Gen. Tom Ewing, -
of Kansas, for Vice President. The move
ment is said to meet with the favor of the
President and.many distinguished and in-.'
Bnential persons throughout the coml.
' try. There is air 134 , some alarm evident
I among the Demo rats in consequence of
this move. . . ~ •
Mr. Burbridge, of 'Kentucky, is pushing
his claims for app intment as Commissioner
. .
of Internal Revenue. The President, will
not he likely te,appoint him. . •
About twelve hundred banks have sent
in their reports for the qtiarter ending Inet
month to' , the Comptroller of Currency.
They ail seem to be in a healthy condition.
The Conference Coinmittee on the tax bill
'expected to get through with their work
yesterday. The bank tax will be stricken
ant. but , the license tax on liquor dealers
will be retained.
The atimisszon of two more members of
the Dense, from North Carolina, makes
one hundred a quorum., It is barely possi

'nil pulatione of consequence a& (affecting
cur "relations with Chinn. It is a re
lwarsal of truisms, generally recognized as
existing by virtue of International law,
without treaty stipulations between first
class framers. An instance of this is the
section that the United States allay not
build railroads in 'Chinese territory with
out their consent, nor they in the United

in the fact that - it recognizes the Chinese
