Recent events have powerfully contributed to tifrite ltepublicans of various shades of opinion, in a common purpose. No reasonable doubt remains ot the election of General Grart by a major ity of thirty thousand. -It is reduced almost to an absolute certainty that the ltepubli cans will lose none of the Congressional dis tricts they carried tw6 years ago; and. fair prospect exist for their carrying one or two districts that they lost then., A majority in each branch of the Legislature' may confi dently be depended ofi-; so that the political complexion of the United States Senator to be chosen as 31 r. Cohan's successor, would seem not to admit 'rif debate. The omens are decidly good.

I would indeed be insensible to the commonest impulse? of humanity were I not filled with the warmest sentiment of gratitude for the friendly expressions and persona' regard that your letter contains, signed as it is by Re publicans and Democrats, whom I know to be staunch sopporters of the Government, and many who have risked their lives for the preservation ot thel mon. Such distinguished consideration overcomes every natural objection I may have for political honors, consequently I do accept of your Kinu invitation to allow my name io ue useu, uui with the understanding that I am not to be the standard-bearer of either political party (Repub licans or Democrats) but if nominated it must be by a I'eople s Convention, as 1 belong to tue peo pie.
