The unanimity with .which GOD. Grant
was chosen as the Radical nominee at Chi
cago is of 00 essential value, except as it may
show the skill with which the party leaders
had manipulated public opinion to subserre
the purpose they wished to ace,mtplish. In

there is a prestige attached to his position

The bPleCtioll of Mr. Colfax Mt the Vice
Presidency; like that of Grant, came more
from than an honest ilk-4re to place
hint in that position. Mr. Wade was the
tirAt choice of two-tbinh, of the members, but
prudence dictated that a man he taken who
is more in accord with the sympathies of
the tnaisci; Neither of the other names pre-
”ented s6emed to afford the required charac
teristics, and the Convention, after four in
effi,etual balloting~, hastily turned to Mr.
Colfax as the forlorn hope who might or
might not be the man for the emergency.
The Radical leaders sing hosannalis of
praise over the invincibility of their ticket
and strive to make their follower; believe it
has met with the most enthusiastic favor in
parts of the country. The best criterion
by which to Judge of these allegations is the
reception of the nomination in our immedi
ate section. Aside from the feu• managing
men of the party, no person appeared to be
especially interested in the tidings, and even
the soldiers who were expected to - receive
the annouuentent of Grant's name with wlld
expressions uf delight, preserve lite voolest
and most provoking indifference. And as it
is here, so it is in all inifty of dw country.
The manifeAtations of enthusiasm have been
few and Ihr between, stub the most of these
were of a foleed nature. With all the ex-

The testimony of General Grant before the
Impeachment Committee moreover indicates
that he approved :'f the programme of
Messrs. Lincoln and Johnson; and his cele
brates' report upon the condition of the
Southern people, made shortly after. the close
of the war, exhibits a feeling of kindness for
them which is utterly irrecomileable with a
support of the emm.,resainual scheme of De.
The question arises, in slew of these

Grant has deserted the President in his hour
of extremity, and given Lis adhesion to the
abominable plan of Negro Construction ?

reckon upon his deserting them as soon as he

Senate was in attendance, and the galleries
were crowde4l with an anxious audience.
The extreme Radicals made several attempts
to postpone the vote, but the motions were
declared out Or order by the Chief Justice,
and his decision sustained by a majority of
the Senate. A ballot was then taken on the
second article, with the sante result as nPnn
the eleventh-3.1 for conviction to 10 against.
The third article met a similar fate, and the
impeachers, seeing themselves foiled at every

IL The guaranty by Congress of Equal
Suffrage to all loyal men at the South was

be maintained ; while the • question of Suf

The National Debt, cuntracual, as it has
been, for the preservation of the Union for
all time to come, should he extended over a

of Congress to reduce the rate of interest
thereon, whenever it can be honestly done.

burden of debt is to so improve our credit
that capitalists will seek to loan us . money at
lower rates of interest than we now pay, and

or suspected.

usurped high legislative and judicial
functions ; who has refused to execute the
laws; who has used his high office to induce
other officers to ignore and violate the laws ;
who has employed his executive powers to
render insecure the property, the peace, lib

the pardoning power; who has denounced
the National Legislature as unconstitutional;
who has persistently and corruptly resisted,
by every tucans in his power, every proper
attempt at the reconstruction of the States
lately in rebellion; who has perverted the
public patronage - into an engine of wkolesale
corruption; and who has been justly
impeached for high crimes and misdemean
ors, and properly pronounced guilty thereof
by the vote of thirty-five Senators.
IX. The doctrine of Great Britain and
other European powers that, because a man
lis once a subject he is always so, must be re
sisted at every hazard by the United States,
as a relic of feudal times, not authorized by
I the laws of nations, and at .war with our

were native-born ; and no citizen of the

not gucceeded in hunting up any thing that
impn m• ,the integrity of the Senators who

athwart something which requires a little
explanation ttorn Mr. Pomemy of Kansas, a
leading impeacher. Colonel Edmund Coop
er, Assh.tant S , ...Ncrentry of the Treasury, being
called us a witness, stated that u person had
approached him during the trial, and proposed,
in the name of S. C. Pomeroy, United States
Senator from Kans.ts, that if the President's
friends would raise $40,000, Pomeroy would
control four Hatfield votes in the Senate
against impeachment. Upon Mr. Cooper
questioning his authority to speak for Pome

follows :

POOR Wade! Repudiated at home, his
State elected n Democratic Legislature which
has chosen Judge Thurman to fill the place
soon to 1w vacated by hiM in the Senate.
Looking to the honors of the Presidency
through the
. infattious avenue of Impeach
ment he fails again, and now his party have
refused him the worthleg. boon 'of the second
place upon their ticket, and left hint and his
nothing ambition to a futurc; political ‘,l).
THE first real life in the Chicago Conven
tion showed itself when the vote nominn•
ting grant was announced. The moment
that the announcement was made a dove,
with feathers painted in red, white and blue,
was thrown out from the galleries and flew
around the hall for some five minutes, when
it strnek the lights in the rear part of the
stage and wits so badly burned that further
flight MO impossible. The dove fa to the
floor somewhat singed, and was in Its col
lapsed condition an omen of the singeing"
that will be zityn the ticket In November.
Am. the able men who in'the palmy du)
of the Republican party were its trusted
leaders - -Seward, Chase, Fremont, Fesseuden,
Trumbull, Charles. Francis Atlanta, Andrew
Johnson—have become ro alienated that they
will probably never act with the party again
A party whirl' has thus lost its brains ha s
outlived its influence. It will for a little
while' exhibit the spasmodic energy of en
epiden.ic fit ; it will be convulsed, it will foam
at tlie mouth, it will dash its head against the
Pavement ; but such activity is tOrmitiable
only to itself, and tends to shorten its days.
ME apparent unanimity of the nomina
tion of General Grant is of no politieal signifi
cance. Clay- wa.s nominated by acclamation,
and with the .same unanimity by the Whig
Convention in SU, while the- Democratic
Convention of the same year came together
with as much doubt as to a candidate it mail
mark the opening proceedings of the
vention this year. • Yet when Polk was
nominated the party was thoroughly and
enthnsiastically in accord, and the candidate
was triumphantly elected. Fur a later in
stance, it was hardly passible for any Con
vention to assemble with more candidates be
fore it than the Democratic Convßition of
Itt.W. But when Pierce was nominated
against Scott, the conqueror of Mexice,stritere
was "unanimity" enough to enable him to
carry every Statu in the Union, excepting
IT im admitted tin alr !lands that the Chica
go Convention was a ntost corrupt body, and
that delegates to h sold their votes as a Inst.-
ketable connuodity. The Chicago corres
pondent of the Cincinnati Commercial, a Re
publican paper, thus speaks of it :
"There never was such direct and undis
guised bargain and sale of votes in a conven
tion as is going on here to-night in the inter
estof Governor Fenton. As much as $5OO
is openly offered for influential votes in the
Sonthern delegations. Fenton 'has already
bought up Louisiana, and is bidding for Vir
ginia, Alabama, South earnliun and Georgia.
The Louisiana delegation cost $1,500. In
reply to a charge of corrupt use of money,
one Of Fenton's friends said, to-nlilit, that
the Southern delegates were poor men, and
the money was given to them, not to pay for
their votes, but to reimburse them for their
traveling expenses. The fight seems to be
between Fentuit's money, and Wade's promi 7
