A tetuatkable ease of :the literal fulfill
ment of a dream has recently been• made
public. Mr. J. C. Clytnfto, of Vienna, Ili.,
in a letter to lion. Horatio •King, of Wash
ington, I). U., with whom he had long been
in correspondence, mentioned incidentally
that he had tlyearned for four consecutive
nights of being murdered. This was in the
month of March last. A few days after the
receipt of that letter by Mr. King a Chicago
dispatch appeared in the papers announcing
that J C Clymer bad been murdered near
Vienna on Friday evening, March 29th. The,
similarity of the names, the 'identity of the
initials, and the locality mentioned, at once
,attracted Kingis attention, and led him
eo believe that thelonan rcferted to was his
correspondent. But all doubt upon that
bubject was soon removed by two letters re
ceived by Mr. King from the postmaster of
Vienna. That gentleman wrote that Mr. J.
C. Clymore went from his home on the mor
ning of March 29th, expecting to return
at night, but was last seen in a &solute pint
of the country late in the evening. The

whose notions of " ReVenue Reform" are as
wide us the poles are asunder, joining hands
in its support, and warning all Democrats
that it was and is tolernain a movement en
tirely within the ranks of the Republican
party. At the same time iheyliave seen the

copper from top to bottom—earnestly plead
ing for some iceognltion by that convention,
and for the surrender of at least the. Vice
Presidency to the party which must furnish
the bulk of the voters to place the new
fledged party in power. They have seen
men calling themselves Liberal Republicans
here in Pennsylvania putting forth the dec
laration that " all tages imposed should be
with a view to revenue, and _so adjusted as
to protect the industrial interests of the
whole country"—whichtheans free trade if
it means anything-'--and coollyignoring Mr.
Greeley's " Great Principle." Noting all
these diverse utterances and cross-purposes
of the apostles of the new political dispen

why the movement was ever started, 'and
whither it tends. .
But there is, after all, a unity Of
and harmony of sentiment running through
ei'ery utterance of all these men, whether
"Reformers" like lif'Clure, whose pledges

like Storey of the Chicago Times. They are
all agreed in one thing, and that is hatred of

ed a Russian you would find a Cossack Un
derneath; and it is equally true that if you
scratch a Cincinnati Conventionisr to -day
you will find 'n hater of Grant beneath the
thin cuticle of Liheial Republicanism. The
refrain of all their doleful ditties is Grant,
Grant and his nepotism; Grant and hismil

Grant and his cigar; Grant and Tom Mur

are all the substantial arguments at present

they will prove , potent enougktoipduce, the
