After a terrible day the agitated
town wus restored to its wonii-J peece,
and the citizens slept es yoosual. The

unanimously (except Joe liigler and

Dear General : I hope you will
not think it out of place for me to ten
der you my most hearty congratulations
upon the action of the Chicago Conven
tion. The perfect unanimity and great
enthusiasm of your nomination were
certainly highly gratifying is being a
formal ratification of the popular in
dorsement.! of your public recoid.which
have heretofore been made throughout
the country. But your unanimous nom
ination was long predetermined, and
was but the fulfillment of universal ex
pectation. On the other hand when
the Convention met, there was ground
for apprehension that its action in oth
er respects might not be so wise. But
the apprehension has, at least in a great
degree, beeu dispelled. The judicious
selection of Mr. Colfax as second on
the ticket, and the genetal practical
wisdom displayed in framing the plat
form that is, in laying down practical
rules of action, based upon the neces
sities of the country, instead of abstract
political theories have greatly increas
ed the probabilities of success, and at
the same time made that success the
more to be desired. I have always
believed that the Union could be fuby
restored only by the men who put down
the Rebehbr, while I have not been
without serious apprehensions that, by
forcing upon the country extreme Rad
ical theories, the stability of the Gov
ernment might be endangered. Great
reforms require time for their full de
velopment time in which theories may
be anal zed. and that which is sound
and of practical Utility separated from
the unsound and chimerical. Wisdom
and moderation in Congress will now
eive the country restoration and peace.
Your election to the Presidency will be
the end of our political trouble?, as your
accession to the Coinmai d in Chief of
the Army was the end of the Southern

A droll lellow was asked by an old

"Last night yesterday morning,

old bought a big custard for a levy, and
threw it through a brick wall nine feel

into a dry null pund and was drowued.
