The penuy-a-liners at Washington hav- j ing .started a ruinor that the stalwart leaders of Pennsylvania had held a caucus iu Washington and determined to make Gen Beaver a candidate for Governor next j full, the Philadelphia Press remarks: Gen. James A. Beaver is a gallant sol dier, a sturdy Republican, and a stainless citizen. For some time past his name lias been prominently associated in the | public mind with the next nomination for Governor, and he possesses many strong atributes as a popular standard bearer, if he were to enter the canvas on his own merits, he would certainly be a formida ble candidate; and it might easily be that with a fair and just spirit, he could readi ly unite all elements of the party both in the nomination and in the campaign. The one thing that would be disastrous to the movement iu his behalf would be the popular belief that the bosses had un dertaken to make him the candidate with out regard to public sentiment, and had "set up" his nomination by machine methods. Such an impression would be well-nigh fatal. And with this wide spread hostility to autocratic rule, the story published the other day t.iat the machine managers had held a little cau cus of their own and assumed to determ ine that he should be Governor has stir red a deep public feeling. The people are in no mood for such usuapations of their own prerogative. They accept leaders, but not dictators; they want organiza tion, but not servility. Especially when it comes to the head of the Common wealth, they want a Governor of the peo ple and for tho peopld, and not a Gover nor by the bosses and for the bosses. Such a story was calculated to prejudice, and injure General Beaver. We are at a loss to see why Gen. Bea ver's " strong atributes " should be dis regarded simply because certain men fa vor Ills nomination, and without whose I aid his election would be uncertain to say the least, li will be observed the I'ress says Gen. Beaver's name' " has been prominently associated in the public mind" in connection with the Gubernato rial nomination, for some time prior to the reported stalwart caucus. It would seem to us that if Mr Cameron and his co leaders have declared for Beaver under such circumstances, that the fact is a gratifying evidence that they submit to the public will in the matter and have no policy of their own in opposition to pop ular sentiment. We have no particular love for Mr. Cameron, but it is simple justice to him that he be allowed to ex press his preferences for candidates, es pecially when it is known that lie will be called upon to take an active part in the election of the ticket whoever may be the standard bearer. The suggestion of the names of Beaver and Grow should meet the approbation of the best element of the republican party, no matter who puts them forward. President Arthur's children will remain in New York for the present. General Simon Cameron is going to spend the winter in the city of Mexico, and will leave home iu a few weeks. The young Duke of Portland, one of the wealthiest of English noblemen, is said to have an income of about .$1)50,OOU a year; and his predecessor, the eccentric Duke, left liini $7,250,000 in cash. Secretary Blaine has ordered a beauti ful silver cup for his little namesake. Blaine VouSteuben, and has, by cable, sent his thanks to Baron Steuben for the new honor conferred upon him. The late Senator Burnside's household goods were sold in Washington on Mon day. The prices obtained were small.

During the year 1882 THE TRIBUNE hopes to em ploy with increasing success the work nnd the methods which have won for it so large a measure of popular approval. Jt has attained, and means never to lose the high standard of success which was aimed at by its founder the largest circulation among the best people. So large a circulation and one . o widely distributed over the entire territory of the Nation has never been attained by any other newspaper in the United States. We accept this fact as the verdict of the American people upon the conduct and character of the TRIBUNE. The po sition it occupies could never have been gained nor retained but by pre-eminent merits as a newspaper as an organ of sound opinion and an advocate of just public measures. In short the TRIBUNE will as heretofore continue to be the medium of the best thought and the voice of the best conscience of the time ; will keep abreast of the highest progress,favor the freest discussion, hear all sides, appeal always to the most enlighten ed intelligence and the purest morality, and refuse peremptorily to cater to the tastes of the vile or the prcjud.ccs of the ignorant. The well-known special features of the TRIBUNE will be carefully maintained, its Agricultural De partment will remain as it is, tho fullest and best. The Household and Young Folks' Departments,the literary, scientific and religious features, the stand ard market reports will all be kept up and extend ed as opportunity may seuve.
