The following complimentary notice of one of the ablest and purest men of the empire state, is from the Biughaniton Jit pvhh'ran. and we transfer it to our col umns with more than ordinary pleasure, because we know that what is said o Mr. I'LATT is truthful anil more than mer ited. The remarks are also applicable to ! many active politicians in this state, nota-1 ble among whom are (J. A. GKOW, and I Secretary QUAY : Tlnf selection of the Hon. T. C. Plattof j Owego, as the representative of the Em pire State on the National Republican Committee and his selection by the Chairman as a member of the Executive Committee, must be very gratifying, not : only to his many friends, but to all good j Republicans in the Southern Tier. It is a j lifting reeogeition of the best and most active element in the Reprblican party, and a worthy compliment to a worthy man. But aside from this, the matter suggests some comparisons which may be studied with profit by would-be leaders in political affairs. In almost every town and city, there are men who aspire to be political leaders and who resort to all manner of deceptions and tricks to gain temporary control. These melt seem to think that success is valuable at any price, and some of them, doubtless, wonder why they al ways remain local politicians—why they do not reach a notable place in politics. To these men, t he success and preferment of such a mun afford a profitable example. Why is he influential in State and even National affairs? Why is he a recogui/.ed leader in his party throughout the State? Is it because he has shown high quali ties of statesmanship? Is it because he is eloquent and persuasive in speech? Is it not rather because he is as true, as pure, as high-minded in political as in business affairs—because men have found from long experience that he is frank and manly truthful in statement, and wholly free from the small and sharp tricks that will some times iuake a man successful as a ward politician, but an absolute failure in any higher and more honorable place? These, as we interpret them, are the main elements of Mr. Piatt's success; and the same is true of almost, if not quite, every other man who attains to high posi tion in political matters. What a pity it is, then that the small polilions, often times men of much force and ability, can not see and learn wisdom from such an example as the political lifeofsueh a man as Mr. Piatt supplies. The lltica Herald (Rep,) has a very strong article against General Grant as a Presidential candidate, saying that "the signs are unmistakable that General Grant can never receive another Presi dential nomination at the hands of a Re publican convention without first encoun tering an organized and determined oppo-; sition which would be fatal to his cordial j and united support by the masses of the | party in 1880." Of Grant's supporters j and their aims it remarks : "Two classes of people are still clam orous for Grant. One class includes the traders in politics who hope to see in his ! return to the White House a return of their day of harvest, so rudely interrupt ed. The other and larger class includes the army of moral cowards, the timid i folk who are still oppressed by the night mare of the civil war, and think that j Grant is needed at Washington to repel! some new imaginary attack upon the cap ital, which only he can conquer. It will be a sad day for the United States when a combination of these two classes can boast that it has dictated the government of the nation." NO REVIEW TO-MORROW. CHRISTMAS, 187b. NEW YEARS, 1880.
