, Political Prospects. . 1
The aspect of the canvass in Pennsylvania
is most prf?oiiraging. 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. 'Republicans! close up
your ranks and matth forward to the grand
consummation. 1 Yttsburyh ' Gazr.tt c. .;

The Richmond Enquirer is not pleased
with the doings at PhUadelphia. It thinks
Vallandighara should have been permitted
to enter ; and it isdisgusted with the "Hug
ping Scene" between Massachusetts, and
South Carolina. It has not had explained
to it that these things wero all for effect,
aud when it comes to understand this, the
Enqnirtr will think better of it.

Pa.: Your letter, proposing to run me for Con
gress, is received. 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. I he v are in v friends and patrons, and in
justice to them, composed as they are of all shades

ness aud interests which has been the height of
my ambition for twenty-five years.
