IT is now said that Horace Greeley
will not withdraw if ho is not nominated
at Baltimore. Well, suppose lie doe,sn't ;
Grant can stand it, if lie can. .
FxrTY Democratic memhers of Con

BRICK Pommtoy says that Boss Tweed
gave $lO,OOO toward effecting the nomi
nation of Mr. Greeley, and that the other
Tammany people added to this until

whether or not this is true, but Brick
used to be pretty good authority on the
doings of the Democratic leaders.

It controverts the position taken by the

THE Illinois Republican State Conven

large and enthusiastic gathering of the
Republicans of that State. lion. Richard
J. Oglesby. was unanimously nominated
for Governor, mni' r i•psolutions passed in

Pennsylvania DomoCracy, on the ques
tion of the PresidSucy. It will be aii"
occasion of much perplexity-'to the
leaders 'of that ancient and 'somow.h

many years they have seen' the nominees
of their 'conventions . spurned by. the
people, and their beat. laid plans for
political ascendency come to naught.,

that any change must bo an improve

the result of the campaign, bringing the
worst defeat they.. had experienced for
_years. Whether or. not they will be'
guilty of a similar folly this year, by
declaring for Greeley remains to beeeen.
' As to their candidates, there is noth
ing yet 'clear exceptthe nemination for

conferred on Chief Justice Thompson by
acclamation. Ho is old, able and a suf

favorite with the Democracy.
For Governor there will be a deter
mined effort to nominate Senator. Backe
low, in the hope, that his character,
long public service and-ability, may help
them in the State canvass. Buckalow's
nomination will be resisted. doubtless, by
the corporate interests; and also, by the
strong partizans in the bOnvention on the
grounds that he, is not a rabid enough
Politician and from those sources there
may ho opposition enough to prevent his
nomination. '
No. 22
It is intimated in many places that
the nomination fur Auditor General will
be tendered to Senator Billiugfelt, of
Lancasf6i4. Wo doubt this-very much,
and we would be greatly disappointed if
he should accei;t - it it it wore tendered.
It will more likely fall on some regular
old-fashioned Democrat, especially if
Mr. Buckalew be fiorninated for Gover
nor. It would . never do to nominate a
State ticket that .hadn't at least two
straight out uncompromising party men
on it. There is a fine chance to dispose
of surplus politicians this time, there
being fourteen delegates at large to the
Constitutional Convention, and three.
Congressmen At large to elect. It is
therefore possible for the State Conven
tion to fix up a largo number of gentle
men permanently this time. _
Tits Democratic journals throughout
the State delight in disparaging General
llartranft on every occasion, and often
make charges against him in connection
with his official duties as Auditor Gen
eral. The simple answer to all these'
allegations is the vote of the Senate on
the question of continuing General Ilart
ranft as Auditor Genefiel after the expi
ration of his term. This measure,
although entirely out of the usual prac
tice in similar cases, was supported by
the entire Democratic side of the Sen
ate and very many Democratic Senators
took occasion to speak in the , highest
tbrms of the personal worth and integ
rity of • General Hartranft, and to com
mend, in the strongest language, the
manner in which the financial af
fairs of the State had been con
ducted during his term of office.
These encomiums coming from gentle
men who wore politically opposed to
our candidate for Governor, many of
whom had been for years in a:position
which enabled them to scrutinize his
official . acts closely, are the best
evidence . ability and in
tegrity, and should at once silence
all clamor about any official shortcom
ings. FrOm the criticisms of the Demo
cratic papers, General liartranft may
turn to the endorsement he received
from the leaders of their party in the
Legislaturb, and on that and the splendid
record of his 'administration -of the
finances, may confidently count on the
hearty support of the people of this

In . the course of Judge Kelley's recent
able and interesting speech, in the United
States Congress, on the pending tariff
and tax bill, he guoted a full tabular
statement of the 'United States census of
the gross production of manufacturorsof
the States and Territories, that is quite
important, as showing the enormous pro
gress we have made in the last decade.
In 1850 the aggregate was $1,019,10(1,-
616 ; in 1800 it had risen to $1,885,861,-
600, and in 1870 it was $1,000,152,016,
au increase of 128 per cent in a decade of
war and devastation ! Nor does this tell
the whole story, for in the census of 1870
the products of mines and fisheries arc
excluded from the statement, while in
the two previous censuses they are in
cluded, so that the actual increase is
much greater than even this table shows.
(hie result of this exclusion of mining
from the table is to change the relative
rank of the St rtes. Pennsylvania, which
ought to stand at the head of the list,
gives nlace to New York, and t',ilifurnia,
which ought to have high rank, falls be
hind Rhode Island. We subjoin a state

It will be observed that in 1850 Penn

'Massachusetts; that in 18(10 she had
passed Massachusetts Vilna, in 1870 we
leave Massachusetts far in the ;rear, and

been so vast as to leave a great

It seems inevitable that every impor
tant enterprise must encounter in its
beginning not only tho natural ditlioub
ties of railroad, building, but also the
delays and vexatious confSequent up.n
the factious opposition of those' who
faincy their own interests injuriously
affected. Such opposition is equally
foolish and futile"; futile because no
really sound and well conceived project
was ever so cinched ; and foolish, be
cause it needs 'tut a glance at our brief
railroad history to see that every now
road' develops now and encourages old
industries, and creates for itself the
business which improves its neighbor
hood and enriches itself.
The Harrisburg and Potomac railroad
has encountered such opposition and-has
lived it down. Already fifteen miles of
the road - havo boon graded, and tho
officers in charge expect to have their
trains running from Harrisburg to Cloy
ersburg by the end 'Of the year. An
extraordinary impetus has been *given to

A MELAlicnoLv BREMC Dow - R.—There
aro lively break-downs that make 'an
audience laugh, and there are sad and
sorrowful break-downs that mike the,
kind4Marted grieve. To the latiCf class
belongs the enervation of body and mind
which is usually called general debil
ity," or "nervous weakness," and which,
When neglected, too aften•terminates in
atrophy and death. A wholesome medi-
cated stimulant is the one thing needed
in cases of this description, and science
and experience .unite in pointing to
Plantation Bitters as the tine specific.
The ° fact that it combines the properties
of an iuvigorant with those of a rug'ula
tor and alterative in'exactly the propor ;
tines necessary• to produce a radical
change in the tole .of the system, and
the action of the diestive and secretive
organs, is au unanswerable argument in
its s a general restorative.
—The Pittsburg,' , •(Pa.,) Leader has the
following:: ,„
One of the anomalies and curiosity of
•our-existing financial system is the fact
that • the notes of the broken national
banks' of :the United States aro worth
fouqper cent more than the \ notes
sound one's. The explanation 'is easily
found. - The government guarantees- the
circulation of all the national banks.
That keeps the notes of the poordst of
them, and oven of those which have
failed, up to par. The total circulation
of the' national banks of the United
States is limited to a fixed amount. But
whcn'a national hanic breaks, if another
bank can buy up its notes and offer the
same guarantees, it is allowed to succeed
to its privileges and franchises. OF if a
banking corporation buys up, sufficient
notes of various broken national. banks
to establish a now bank, the government
allows it to do 4his too. There are
numbers of peoPtil who would like to go
into the national banking business if
they had a chance. This gives them a
chance. If they watch the market and
buy . up enough of broken bank notes
'they have an opening to start a new
national bank in. It is the pressuro of
these outsiders who want to get in that
creates the demand for thes'e "busted"
bank notes which has raised them to the
premium we have alluded to, 'and made
the paradox that the notes of our rdtton
banks are better than those of our good
ones a sober truth.

DEAR HERALD i—To-day closed the
most interesting meeting of the Ameri
can Institute‘zaf Hommopathy ever hold.
Several huudred phytiiciaus were in at
tendance from all seetnids of the United
States. The meethlg was inaugurated
on Monday evening, May 20, by.a recep
tion given by Dr. and Mrs. T. S. Verdi,
at their residence, to the members and
their ladies, for the formation and
renewal of fraternal relations.
On Tuesday the general business ses—
sions of the society commenced in Lin
coln Ilan. -
On Wednesday morning the membeis
assembled in the parlors of the Arling
ton Hotel (which was the head-quarters
of the society,) and proceeded to the
White House, where, by special appoint
ment, they were received by his' Excel-,
lency, the President of the United States,
and cordially welconied to the Nation's
Capital. 'Under the administration of
President Grant the Honimpathic Low
of Cdre received its first National recog
nition;- by his, according to its practition
ears equal professional rights, which will
be, accepted as a step in the right direc
tion by all fair-minded people, as it is
claimed by a large class of citizens,
that this law of eureio a great advance in
the healing art ; aic ' d with considerable
show of right, as the report of Edwin
M. Kellogg, an eminent statistician,' will ,
show. Ho has spent several morithe4n
Classifying the deaths in Now York city,
for the years of 1870 and 1871, showing
that, the practitioners of the Hommo
pathie school of medicine, lose but 50
where the- " regular" or 'Allopathic
schoollose 100 cases by . death, these are
facts which the people can ponder, if
they cannot understand how medicines
act on the human system. As a fitting
7. tributo to the success of Homaiopathy, a
telegram was received on the third' day
of the session, from New Yiirk, stating
that Governor Hoffman bad just
signed the bill passed by„.the Legis
lature' of that - State for the endow
ment and establishment of a University,
in which the Homcoopatbic law of cure
is to be taught. And from Massachu
setts wo hear" that nearly ono hundred,
thousand dollars wore raised for a now
HHoniceopathic Hospital, by moans of a
fair held in Boston, within the short
space of a few weeks,. owing, to per
secutions meted out to Honiceop:thists
by the Allopathic branch of the profes
sion, and from all parts of the world we
hear of the same cheering progress.
The American Institute has taken ac
tion to invite and hold a world's Congress
of Homcoopathic Physicians in Philadel
phia, during tho Centennial Anniversary
of Independence in 187 G.
Many acts of courtesy and kindly
greeting were tendered' the members of
ttle Institute during their stay in Wash
ington. His Excellency Governor Cooke,
and his kind and accomplished lady,
gave a grand reception, and extended
the hospitalities OT their elegant mansion
on Georgetown Heights, to the members'
and the ladie,s accompanying them.
The'next meeting will be held in June,
1873, in the city. of Cleveland, Ohio.
