In Mississippi the Democrats have nominated their ticket, headed by Hon. W. C. Hemingway, for State Treasurer. The platform adopted is mainly confined to state matters, recognizes to the fullest extent the civil and political equality of all men, and asks the aid and assistance of the voters of all parties o f both races, in the establishment of good government. The color line is wholly ignored. TRUE AS GOSPER l a a recen t sp e e c h a t R o m e , IT. Y ., that heroic champioa of Eeform, Walter B.

Men of his class who are pre­ pared to accept the burdens of office are few, and none will be found who will discharge its duties with a higher degree of efficiency and conscientious­ ness. He has never obtruded his per­ sonality upon the public, but has de­ voted himself with entire self-forget- fuluGSs, to the interests of the State. Attentive, honest, conciliatory, intel­ ligent, approachable and unostenta­ tious, he is marked with peculiar em. phasis for the conspicuous and respons­ ible office which he has held, and more especially at a time when there has grown up a national distrust of men in prominent places. No man has ever questioned the integrity of his purpose or of his action. T h e r e w a s n e v e r a tim e w h e n W i l - lers, and men like him were more needed in | l 11 the offices of the State. Of the cogency of his reasons for de­ c lin in g to be a can d id a te th is fa ll, when neither himself or any. of Ilia partisans can doubt his re-election, fio one can j udge so well as himself.

From the Albany Artrus. - The Prohibitionists of Montgom- |g r Pennsylvania democratic con­ gressmen, who have been .actively supporting the candidacy of the Hon. Samuel J. Randall for the speakership of the house of representatives, confirm the statement recently made by the Philadelphia correspondent of the ITew York Tribune as to his strength. They say that they regard the contest as -yirtually decided already, and that Mr. Randall can count on very near­ ly one hundred votes on the first bal­ lo t in cau c u s . A s th e w h o le number of democratic votes is one hundred and seventy-five, this would give him a. c lea r majority an d nearly a dozen votes to spare. T h e D e m o c r a t s o f O r e g o n h a v e n o m in a t e d L a P a y e t t e L a n e , a y o u n g law y e r , and son of Gen. Joseph Xiane, for Congresi They adopted an ex­ cellent platform, one ihat has a good old Democratic ring. It contains provisions in favor of State rights, the payment of the public debt, re­ sumption of specie payments, and leg­ islative control of railroad fares and freights, demands reform in all de­ partments, opposes a protective tariff, paper currency, National Banks, Chinese immigration, fraud and cor­ ruption in office. We believe the Democracy of that state must succeed] with such a popular platform. We publish this week the elec­ tio n n o t ice. T h e r e are to be elected this year a secretary of state, comp­ troller, state treasurer, attorney gen. eral, state engineer and surveyor, canal commissioner in place of Stroud, in­ spector of state prisons in place of Graves, a justice of the supreme court in the place o f Hon. LeRoy Morgan, & state senator, member of assembly, two school commissioners, a county treasurer in p la c e o f A . D . M a r s h a ll, two justices of sessions in place of Lam- berson and Snell. The election takes place on the 2d of November. T h e new census ©f N e w Y o r k city is y et incomplete, but enough is known to make safe the estimate that the population is about a million and a quarter, and that of Brooklyn bait a million.

A B aetimoee F eting M achine .— The Baltimore American says: A young gentleman of this city, unmind­ ful of th,6 fate of Icarus, has invented a flying machine, in which he pro­ poses ■ to cross the ocean during the present snmmer. The machine pears to be a combination of the 1 loon, the windmill and the steam- launch. The voyager rides in a boat containing' a small steam engine, w h ich i s u s e d for m o v in g th e “ w in g s ” of the balloon and steering it through the air. ®he boat is attached to the flying machine with a rope, and thus is drawn through the water. . A mer­ chant'of this city will furnish the in­ ventor, Mr. Schroeder, with the mon­ ey to build one of these dying ma­ chines, and the contract for the same has already been given out. IS r A correspondent o f the Boston Globe paid a visit to Thomas Carlyle, and gives the following description of how the distinguished Scotch thinker looks and talks: \ He was dressed in a long, gray, monkish-looking morn­ in g gow n , a n d w a s e v id e n t ly en g a g e d in reading, and I noticed that the t f o volumes befere him were Motley’s United Netherlands. Ho did not look so' old as I supposed, and thef ravages of time were principally no­ ticeable in the feeble shaking of his hands. JJis face, though/furrowed, Was fresh and rosy, his gray eye pierc­ ing and full of luster, and big head was covered with a strong crop of thick iron-gray hajr.” During the conversation American a^aira were touched upon, and Mr. Carlyle seem­ ed intensely amused and disgusted at all the men and brother agitation which had been going on in the United^ i^tates, about what he called the ■“ niggers.” f* A gentkmaa who had a cofiver- sktion with Andrew Johnson at his bouse in Teune^ee, s day or two be­ fore his death, represents Mr. John­ son as saying: “ I am winding up my personal affairs. J wish to be my own‘ executor. I have ha.d a had feeling in my head which makes me tear apoplexy, and' a man liable to that never knows how suddenly he may be cut off,” the entirs assurance that we have net over estimated either the character, the services, o f one of our best, most attentive, and reliable public men. O ffice of the S ec ’ y op S tate , } A l b a n y , N . Y., July 81,1875. J Edfitor o f the Poughkeepsie News: ■ D e a r S i b : In th e issu e o f you r p a ­ p e r o f th e 2 0 t h in s t ., y o u sp e a k of. m y discharge o f official duty in very kind­ ly terms, and advocate my re-nomina­ tion fer I Secretary of State by the Democratic party, in the ensuing po­ litical canvass, for which friendly es pression you have my sincere thanks. Of the success of the Democratic State ticket, by a large majority, at the, e lectio n to be h e ld th is fa ll, ( w ith a Democratic Legislature) I entertain no doubt. Not only the masses of the Democratic ident vote] irty, but many inde­ pendent voters, will, I believe, hearti­ ly endorse the present State adminis­ tration, and warmly sustain Governor Tilden in the work of reform which he has inaugurated. W hile I believe it to be the right, under our form of government, of any citizen to engage in an honorable can­ vass fo r ren o m in a tion to a p u b lic office, the duties of which he may be* lieve. himself competent to perform, and frankly avow ms candidacy, and use all honorable exertions to secure a. nomination---so, too, I believe it to be right and proper for any citizen in public or private station, to decline a nomination when he believes it to be his duty to do so. T h e d u ties o f m y office during^ m y term have been exceedingly laborious. The Secretary o f State (ia addition to the immediate dail}^ routine duties of b>s office, which are increasing from year to year, with the growth of the State in population and wealth, and the imposition of new duties by the Legislature), is a member of the Ca­ nal Board, of the Commissioners of the Land Office, a Commissioner of the Canal Fqnd, of the State Board of Equalization, of the State Board of Cfharjities,. of the Regents o f the Ijni- versity^and a number o f minor Boards. During the first year o f my term, the Bxecutive and Legislative depart- snts o f the government, were in the h a n d s o f th e p o litica l o p p o s ition — ^and the State officers chosen in 1873, by the Democrats and Liberals, had a bare majority in the Canal Board, which rendered very constant attend­ ance at Albany necessary. Besides, the submission and passage of the Constitutional Amendments, added quite tfiaterially to the many questions co.nstkntly submitted for e x ­ amination. Under the provisions o f our Consti­ tution and Laws, a State Census is tak­ en during the~present year—and the preparation of forms and blanks, the appointment of a larg'e number of. enumerators (about 2,700), with the. general oversight of so importaht a work, has devolved upon me arduous duties, which wUl continue during and beyond this year. With the close o f the present year I shall have terminated fourteen years of almost continuous employment in the service o f the ^tate, in the various gradations from clerk to the head of a department. I am admonished by physicians, that I .need rept and relaxation from the cares o f official duties so pressii ■ is,, tff jregtoreregtore myy whichhich hass becomeecome impaire.dpaire.d by con- and arduous tp j m w ha b im tinuoua apjplicfttion to business, I have recently suffered the loss, by death, o f my only brother, upon whom I was accustomed to greatly rely as an asristant and adviser.

These temperance men are at least perse­ vering, but then temperance and pol­ ities too often fail to affiliate. It appears that Jim” A. Fink, of Johnstown, has got into some tem­ porary difficulty. H e was recently an inmate of a State prison, and after serving hk term, he voted at an elec­ tion without having first been restored to citizenship. He is now being pros­ ecuted before United States Commis­ sioner Hess, of'Canajoharie, for the offense.

It appears that he was a farmer and a man of fine possessions, a very earnest member of the church and had always been regarded a man of unquestiona­ bly good character. But, unfortu­ nately, as it now seems, he lived in the anti-rent district where crime of a revolting character has been rampant during the past two years. He was not in accord with the anti-renters nor did he in any way manifest any an­ tagonism toward them. H e was a friend of Clark, the land owner, and no peraonoan be a friend of Clark and live with any degree o f safety in that district. It now seems from all that can be naiH ed upoD t h e sa b ject feom a reliable,quarter that the report of his attempting to commit the act up­ on the pempn of the . child was un­ founded : that the child was advised and commanded to verify the report to injure the ,good name and reputa­ tion of Link. The story of the crime was related wIUi such a measure of plausibility that eveuLiDk’B friends thought it. was. possibly true. No le­ gal action was taken against him and' in danger,of hk iife« which bad been tbreatensU, ,b© left the neighborhood and has not yet returned. It was cer­ tainly a desperate game, on the part of the incendiari^, etc., o f that district, to.ruin a good, man, and a correction of the report is deserved by Link and a few who dare to he hjs friends in that crimeTbeaieged locality. ■99* A wild boy was captured near Marcos, Tex., recently, who is an ex­ tremely in teregtifig piece o f humanity.
