A•CCIRCN&R'S Hst.r —On account of the in. ,
seciirity of life, in NeW York, a , correspondent
of the goninzercial Adreqker sukkests that all
citizens should have their clothes marked with
their names and residence, that they may be
identified if Murde'red.. In' view, however, of
the fact - that they strip bodr.s there of their
clothing, and pitch , thim into the river,. with
their necks tied, to barrels-Of pitches sinkers;
the Louisville ..Tonitia/ thinks •it 'Advisable to
have the name tatimed,o the-breast dr.:some
place that , can't easily .he torn - off. As to
markink•the place*Of residence, that. would be
impossible, for Ne . w :Yorkers all 'move every
May day, so. that a full . grown n.ari or woman
would look like aprinted directory. - t.
The .National Union convention, finished its.
labors . oh Thut4day by placing Hon. EuwAso
EvErtivTE in nomination for the Vice Preside&
Not .a weft]. Can be'said in diiparagement
of the platiorar adopted by the Cenve . ution,..or
the personal. character of the men who..haVe
beep selected. But it is idle to SuPpose that,
in the present excited state of the public 'mind
on'pokitiCal topics, such a ticket can command
a huge - vote. It possible Bell May carry
Tennessee, and be will be supported vigorously
in' Maryland : billet - Aside of these States, the .
ticket cannot show much strength... The 'pee

toed platforms.... '
