Call of Soldiers' Committee on Gen. Grant. A committee of the Soldiers' and Sailors' convention called on Gen. Grant on trie 29ih ult., and formally presented him with a copy of the platform of princ lples of their convention. After a lively hand-shaking, Col. Alleman, of Penn sylvania, delivered a few complimentary remarks. General Grant spoke in reply as fil ows : Gantlemen of the Sailors' con vention : 1 will say, while it was never a desire of mine to become a candidate for political office, it afords me great gratification to feel that I have the sup port of those who were with me in the war. If 1 did not feel that I had the confidence of those, I would feel less desirous of accepting the position. The acceptance of the office is not a matter of choice, but of duty. Having accepted the nomination, I will receive your aid till next November. I must thank you. gentlemen, for the honor you have con- erred upon me. The affair took place in the presence of the convention committee, with whom was Generals Gregg, Rawlins, Badeau, orter, Comstock, Dent and Babcock, and Colonels Parker, Webster and Lee of the General's staff". After a few moments conversation, General Grant extended a cordial invitation to the com mittee to be present" at his residence this evening, on the occasion of the for mal presentation of the nomination of the National convention. The committee then left the General's headquarters for the capilol, to offer their congratulations to Speaker Colfax. At two o'clock the committee were re ceived by Mr. Colfax in the Speaker's room of the capitoL After greeting the committee with his customary cor diality and listening to a few remarks by Colonel Allewam, Mr. Colfax respond ed briefly. He alluded in striking terms to the perils by land and sea which were endured by the soldiers and sailors of the Union in defense of the constitution and flag of their country. Great as were the obligations of the nation to those at home who stood by the govern ment in its hour of trial, greater still was the debt of gratitude it owed to those who leaving home and all at the risk of fe and limb to save the republic from destruction ; going forth from every por tion of the republic, some in the freshness ' their lives June and some in the ripe maturity of their lives Uctober. The land. South and North, is filled with the graves of the nation's patriot son3. Their memory-will ever be inscribed in all patriot hearts as long as time shall ast or the republic endure. Thanking the committee who repre sented the survivors of the heroic defend ers of the Union for this expression of their esteem and regard, he cfbsed with the assurance that if the ballot-box should ratify the nominations at Chicrgo his fidelity to principles and devotion to the Union would show that their confidence had been misplaced. A copy of the platform was presented to the Speaker The committee, after a few moments, retired, and the Speaker returned to his duties in the House of Representatives. The committee appointed by the Nati onal Union Republican.convention, with icsiuctions from that body to pre sent to General Grant and Schuyler Col fax arecord of its proceedings and to in form them of thier nomination performed that duty this evening between eight and nine o'clock, at the residence of General Grant. About two hundred persons were present including delegates to the convention, several members of Congress, Ceneral Grant's staff and the ladies of the families of Gram and Colfax. These two gentlemen stood side by side, and the spectators formed in a semi-circle in frcnt of them, thus affording a full view of the proceedings. General . Hawley, president of the convention, delivered the following ad dress: General The National Union Republican party assembled in the na tional convention on the 20th cf this month, and appointed us the officers of the coavenitoa to wait upon yon in obed ience to its instructions; we give you a copy of. the record' of its proceedings, you will perceive that it was governed bv the most patriotic motives, oarmoni ous. enthusiastic and determined. We mean, in vour own words, to save io peace what we won m war. We mean to make it a solemn practical reality in the United States that all men are creat ed equal, endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of hap piness. We intend that there shall never be cause or opportunity for a civil war in this nation, originated either by those who would enslave their fellow-men, or those who must fight to regain their free dom. We believe there can be no per manent peace save in justice and equal rights the equality of all men before the law. We hope to see our govern ment reaching to the remotest corner and to the humblest person, securing to him by. impartial and irresistatle power his personal safety, the right to the avails of his labor, and the right and the op portunity for physical and moral advance ment. 'The best guarantee for the continu ance of such a government is to give to all classes impartially a share in its mana gement. Wehear mu:h of forgiveness and fraternity, and we do most earnestly desire a speedy return of the policy and measures of peaceful times. None more anxions for a restored Union than those who sustained their government during the late dreadful war; but the dead men have left a trust in our hands. We long for peace and good will, but we have no friends who oppress their fellow men. We do not fdly and hopelessly ask for indemnity for the past ; we seek for security for the future. You will see that the convention be lieves that integrity, simplicity and econ omy in governmental affairs are the duties of good citizens and honorable men. It makes the strict fullhllment of the national obligation a point of honor never to be waived, while- the civilized world recognizes it a3 a full and final payment it is the only payment the Un ion Republican party will ever consent to tender. The equal nghra of adopted citizens are clearly asserted, and all the people who love ovr government are hospitably invited to ccmeind enjoy its benefits andcontribute to its strength. The convention spoke on nothing more warmly than in proffering a hearty wel come to all those who were lately in arras against the United States and are now rankly and honestly co-operating in re storing peace and establishing a truiy ree government. During the last three years countless ndications cf the people's choice for the next President have been converging ud- on yourself. Having made its state ment of principles and purposes, the convention deliberately and formally. State by State, territory by territory. records the will of its canstituents and unanimously nominated you for President of the United States, following the work by tumultuous and long continued man- testations of joy, pride ana confidence. We know you will b3 faithful to the constitution and laws to the sympathies and principles that you are called upon to represent. We know that you will not seek to enforce upon the umVil'jng representatives of the people any policy of your own devising ; for you have said that the will of the people is the law pi the land. The records of the war, and of your subsequent fidelity, afford evid ence that the nation can safely and wisely place you in the chair cf Washington L and Lincoln. In behalf cf the convention, we tender you its nomination for the Presidency, and solcit its acceptance. We can give you no higher proof of our gratitude for your past, or our confidence in your fu ture. We propose to elect you. After the applause with which the above speech was received had ceased, General Grant replied as follows : Mr. President and gentlemen of the National Union convention : I will en deavor in a very short time to write you a letter accepting the trust you have im posed upon meapplause3 and express ing my gratitude for the confidence you have placed in me. I will now say but little orally, and that is to thank yor for the unanimity with which you have se lected me a candidate for the Presid ential office. I can say in addition that I looked on during the proceedings at Chicago with a great deal of interest, and am gratified with the harmony and unamimity which seemed to have governed the delibera tions of the convention. If chosen to fill the high office for which you have select ed me, I will give to its duties the 6ame energy, the same spirit and the same will that I have given to the perform ance of all duties which have devolved on me heretofore. Whether I shall be able to perform these duties to your entire satisfaction time willdetermine.You have truly said in the course of your address that I shall have no policy of my own to interfere against the will of the people. As the General concluded his spaech there were long continued applause. Gen eral Hawley then addressed Speaker Colfax, saying: "You liave heard our declaration - of principles at. Chicago, and therefore I need not repeat them. You are aware that numerous candidates for the Vice Presidency were presented. They were all loved and respected, and your selection was brought about by the good wiil and friendship entertained for yourself. You arc known to the Amer ican people by fourteen years of public service. We know you come from the people, and without false pretense we may say you are.faithful to principle. The convention tenders you the nominatian of Vice Presidet and ask3 your accepta ce." TAppause. To this Mr. Coltax replied : Mr. Pres ident Hawley and gents History has already proclaimed mat the victories 0 the party you represent during the re cent war always gave increased hope and confidence to the nation, which its reveises and defeats increased the nat ional peril. It is no light tribute, there fore, to the millions of Republicans in the forty-two Slates and Territories, re presented in the Chicago convention, that our organixation has been so in separable interwoven with the best in terests of the Republic, that the triumphs and reverses of the one have been the triumphs and reverse of the other. Since the General of our armies, with his heroic followers, crushed the rebell ion, the key note of its policy, that loy alty should govern what loyalty preserv ed, has been worthvof its honored record in the war. uordiauy agreeing with the platform adopted y the National convention, and the resolutions thereto attached, I accept tho nomination with which I have been honored, the will hereafter communicate that acceptance to you in the more formal minnar that usag-e requires.

WHITHER. OBITUARY. KIT CARSOIT. Our despatch from St. Louis this mor- t uing announce that a letter, received there from Fort Lynn, Colorado, says that the renowed Kit Carson died at that post on the 23 inst. of a rupture of an ar tery in the neck. Kit Carson was one of the most noted of that intrepid race of mountaineers, trappers, and guides that have ever been the pioneers of civilization ia its advancement westward across the Western continent. He was born in Madison County, Kentucky, Dec. 24, 1S09, and while he was a mere infant, lis parents emigrated to what is now ioward County, Missouri, but what was then an almost unbroken wilderness. At the age of fifteen he was apprenticed to addler with whom he continued two years, after which he joined a hunting expedition and thus commenced the pur suit he followed during the remainder of his life. For eiht years he was on the plains leading the adventerou3 life of a trapper, which he relinquished only on receiving the appointment of hunter to Baut's Fort, where he continued eight years more. At the expiration of this time he paid a short visit to his family, and on his return met, for the first time, General, then Lieut. John C. Fremont, y jKom his experience in the backwoods w Ji was engaged as guide in his sub- .aent explorations. In this position he was eminently useful, and to him is prob ably due much of the success of those explorations. In 1S47, Carson was sent to Washington as bearer of dispatches, and was then appointed Lieutenant in the Rifle Corps of the United States army. In 1S53 he drove 6,000 slaeep over the mountains to California, a very hazardous undertaking at that time, and, on his return to Laos, was appointed In dian Agent in New-Mexico. Since this appointment he has been largely instru mental in bringing about the treaties be tween the United Stales and the Indians, and on a mission of this kind he visited Washington a few weeks ago in company with a deputation of the red men, and made a tour of several of the Northern and Eastern cities. New York Tribune. The Cakbolate or Lime. One of our subscribers in Arizona asks informa tion as to the use of carbolate of lime to drive grasshoppers and insects from veg etables, &c, and its cost. In answerer, we would state that the carbolate of lime is a powder, and cost 25 cents a pound. It is sprinkled on the vegetables cr grass, like ashes, and then followed with a sprinkling of water to dampen it and prevent the wind from blowing it off. Whenever it disappears it should be re newed.' In dry weather it last3 several days, but rain washes it off. As long as it remains the grasshoppers and all insects keep away. Many of our citizens are using it successfully, and regard it aa very cheap. Omaha Republican. The Rev. Mr. McMulIen (Roman Catholic) has challenged Bishop Scott (Methodist) to a religious discussion, the former engaging to prove that Meth odism is no religion, and is anti-republican. Prof. MattesGn, of New Jersey, in behalf cf the Bishop, has accepted the challenge " with the understanding that the question shall be, "Is Romanisn a sannahs made the welkin ring, as the corrupt form of Christacity,- or is it no ston8 which the builders refused thus be Christianity ?" , came the headstone of tho corner. The World on Gen. Grant. From The World, May 21, laoS. It was possible for Grant, after his failure "to fight it out on one line," in his advance cf 1S64, upon Richmond, to lavish the lives of thousands cf Amer ican soldiers and to expend hundreds of thousands cf dollars cf. the nation's trea sure upon a new campaign, and so finally wear and worry down the strength of the rebellion which had already been mortally wounded by Meada at Gettys burg. From The World, April 11,1865. Gen. Grant's history should teach us to discriminate better than we Amer icans are apt to do between glitter and solid work. Our proneness to run after demagogues and spouters may find a wholesome corrective in the study of such a character, as his. The qualities by which great things are accomplished are here seen to have no necssary connection with showy and superficial accomplish ments, nhen the mas3 of men look upon such a character, they may learn a truer respect for themselves and each other; they are taught by it that high qualities and great abilities are consis tent with the simplicty of taste contempt for parade, and plainness of-manners with which direct and earnest men have a strong natural sympathy. Ulysses Grant, the tanner, Ulysses Grant, the unsuccessful applicant for the post of City Surveyor of St. Louis, Ulysses Grant, the driver into that city cf his two-horse team with a load of wood to sell, had within him every manly quality which will cause the name cf Lieutenant General Grant to live forever in history. His career is a lesson in practical demo cracy; it is a quiet satire on dandyism, the puppyism, and the shallow affecta tion of our fashionable exquisites a3 well as upon the swagger of our plausible, glib tongued demagogues. Not by any means that great qualities are inconsis tent with cultivated manners and a fluent elocution ; but that such superfical ac complishments are no measure of worth or ability. Gen. Grant s last brilliant campaign sets the final saal upon his reputation. It stamps him as the superior of his able antagonist as well as of all the commas ders who have served with cr under him in the great campaign cf the last year. It is this sureness cf judgment which see3 precisely where lies the turn ing point; which sees precisely what are th objects that justify the utmost streach of presistence ; it 13 this ability to take in the whole field of view in just prespective and due subordination o! parts, that is tho mark of a superior mind. Gen. Grant his taken out of the hands of all critics tho question whether it belongs to him. He has wan his greatest triumph orer the most j;kiliful and accomplished General on the other e; over a G?neral who foiled him long enough to prove hi3 great mastery of the art of war; and the completeness of whose defeat is a testimony to Grant's genius such as a victory over any other General of the Confederacy, or even an earlier victory over Lee himself, could not have given. Apply to Gen. Grant what test you will; measure him by the magnitude of the obstacle he has sur mounted, by the value of the positions he has gained, by the fame of the an tagonist over whom he has triumphed, by the achievements of his most illustri ous co-workers, by the sureness with which he directs his indomitable energy to the vital point which is the key of a vast field of operations, or by that su preme test of consummate ability, the absolute completeness of hi3 results, and he vindicates his claim to stand next after Napoleon and Wellington, among the great soldiers of lhi3 century, if not on a level with the latter. A Masonic Biblical Legend. The following is said to be the expla nation cf the text ; "The stcne which the builders refused, the same 53 become the head-stone of the corner." It is said that when Solomon's Temple was buil ding, all the stones were brought from the quarry- ready cut and fashioned, and there were marked on all the blocks the places where they were to be put. Among the stones was a very curious one; it seemed cf no desirable shape, it ap peared unfit for any portion of the buil ding. They tried it at this wall, but it would not fit; they tried it in another, but it could not be accommodated ; so, vexed and angry, they threw it away. The Temple was so many years building that the stone become covered wiih moss, and grass grew around it. Everybody passing by ianghed at the stone; they said Solomon was wise, and doubtless all the other stones ware right ; bat as for that block, they might as well send it back to the quarry, for they were qnite sure it was meant for nothing. Year after year rolled on, and the poor stone was still despised ; the builders constantly refused it. The eventful day came '.when the Temple was to be finish ed and opened, and the multitude was assembled to see the grand sight. The builders slid; "Where i3 the tcp stone? Where is the pinnical ?" They little thought where the crowning marble was, until some one said : "Perhaps that stcne which the builders refused is meant to be the top-stone." They then took it, and hoisted it to the top cf the house; and as it reached the summit they found it well adopted to the place. Lcud ho- Nasby Papers. Wasiiixgtc, May 19, 1503.
