No man; since Washington, has been soidolizeilfor Valor ntid success in the field without being puffed up and spoiled.

He is one of the very few public en who have passed through the temptOtio»s of metropeli t\ tan life unscathed. i:s\ he mass of float ing scandal which con. Mutes the su perfices of 'life in Washin ton, we nev er heard aught which affechid Schuyler Colfax. He has borne for may years, among men of all parties, the e 'viable repute of a pure and fair-minded, igh toned ChriStian gentleman. It iTs never been necessary for bitn to stoop to employ the questionable arts of the politician to maintain his position in public life, since he has from the first been the choice of the Republicans of his District. Our faith in him is so great that we do not believe it . pbssible to corrupt him. As the presiding officer of the House for six years he enjoys the envia ble reputation of having discharged the dfficult and delicate duties of the posi tion with such impartialitias to elicit the unqualified praise gall parties.— Like Gen. Grant he is abstemious, fru- gal and unostentatious. A man whom often preferment has not spoiled. ' - The Chicago Convention has done, wisely and well in presenting these k en for the suffrage of the people. And we predict that the people will show their appreciation of the wisdom of the. Convention by endorsing the nomination by an overwhelming ma jority next November. —This through and by virtue of vigi lance, and unceasing labor. For the victory cannot be won by the prestige of our candidates. Republicans, or ganization is our first duty; and we shall soon know who are and who are not in earnest, by the alacrity with which active Republicans take up and carry on the work. We i by no means give up the coni c- tion of Andrew Johnson, though he is acquitted on the 11th Article. The charges in that Article are, that An drew Johnson did, on a' certain occas ion, declare Qougress to be a fragmen tary body, thereby intending to deny the validity of its laws; that ho at tempted to prevent Secretary Stanton from discharging the duties of the War Office, in contempt of the Senate which had reinstated him ; that Mr. Johnson attempted to defeat the execution of the apOropriation bill of 1867, and the act for the more efficient government of the rebel States. And upon these charges the Senate, by a majority of one, acquitted the President. There are ten remaining Articles of Impeachment, and the guilt of the President of the charges therein pre ferred is, on two or three eounts,-Unde- Med. Unwilling to believe that the Senate will stultify itself, and reqlse to stand between the people and an usurp, er, we shall light andiall back, if nec essary, from Article to Article, until the entire series shall be exhausted. -When . . . . rnieed to believe lix_totardepravity,pri#l. ~ , . ably_ we sbalt.believe, and aiiipleine: in OW situation i ) " : z• •fit.titorsislefitenden; 4 ,Trpgmbpl , l4.;, , F; full aifikoveitli)Wiiik: ROJO- of high or low degree; eYeryPupperhead,. fanged or toothless, • iv - a Shed and un:- Washed,- , --is patting th4se stern states men on the Shoulder in a pattotilitng way.

The Natiqual debt contrasted, as it has been, for I the preservation of the Union 'for all time to come, .should be extended over a fair period for redemp tion;, and it is the duty of Congress to reduce the rate -of interest thereon, whenever it can be, honestly done. 6. That thp best policy td diminish our 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 must continue to pay, so long as repudiation, partial or ~total, 'open or covert, is threatened or suspect ed. . democrats' 7.
