When he dis. played some con-iderable parliamentary knowledge and skill in that position we thought, ' well ho i a good presiding officer, that's all." We begin to suspect he must b of more strength than we give him credit for. He must be a man of some power when it takes the united abilities of the four leading Democratic papers of this State to write him down. Keep at it, gentlemen.

Their con tents related to matters understood be tween 'armichael ami Greeley, some of the letters pas-nig on as thoush con nected with previous busin-ss ; and one of the letters inrtfeil.

De ponent s strong impression is that Gree ley's candidacy was mentioned ; but of that f. does not say positively. J he time when this letter was read by de ponent was about the last of March or first of April. 1872- The subject had previously been brought to deponent s attention by I .nr- michael: but when the letters were fhown. particularly Greeley's letters, deponent thought the matter too absurd to notice ; but after the Cincinnati nomi natiou he understood their importance. and endeavored to procure copies. He would have exposed the matter, except that he had hopes of procuring the let ters or conies ot them. Deponent was informed in December, LS7I, from the statement of Carmijhael, that Greeley had promised (.'armichael the tone of the Ti Hume would b changed about the fir-t of the year 1872; and the deponent, on noticing, aw thv change which statement of laruiiehael depo nent can prove on competent testimony of a public officer. Deponent further remembers that in one ot Greeley s letter s, Lhase was men tionej as now feeble and broken down. Deponent makes this statement on his honor as a citizen, and because he be lieves the facts he has mentioned should be exposed. L. E.

The following paragraph from the Tribune ot yesterday, which we had missed in our daily glance at that paper, is called to our attention as we go to press : 1 he Ringhanipton liepubl'can has for some weeks endeavored to ordain a no tice from this journal by a series of fa' ricwiions which have not even the small "niieiit of plausibility. It has from day to dav pretended that it would support its charces bv letters which it has re pea ted ly threatened to produce but still withholds. In vain has its ally, the Even inn Fast, urged it to produce its evidence or confess itself mistaken Print your letter", or acknowledge your slanders! 1 his lournal has been "noticed very often bv Mr. Greeley, in the Tribune, during the year pa.-t; and the lesser trills of that paper, in assuming to notice" us, are guilty of an imperti nence, lhey are iikewi-e '.mty or a deception, u e asked them to deny, by lu'liontv. of Mr Greeley, or Seymour, or Hutchins; and they have not been able to do it. The Tribune is "not an organ," and does not of course, speak foi Mr. Greeley. Let us now see what it will sav if it can sav anything, for it- elf. We have pointed Mr. Greeley to Ids remedr. And the mere word of Mr. Greeley is not henceforth current with the American people.
