Jb the Editor o f The Chicago 7 ribunc : Atlanta. 111., May L— Now that it is conceded by both Republicans and Democrats that Tilden. of Now York will bo tho Democratic candidate for President,—tho strongest man they havo,— it is necessary for the Republicans lo tako a lesson, and also to take warning from tbem, and nominate tho atrongost man in our party; and it seems to me that tho strongest man wo can nominate, and tbo only man wo con elect, Is Bristow, and in fact ho is considered so by the Democrats, and they fear him more than any other ipan, as is shown by tho way they persist in trying to connect or catch him in some cor ruption. His record is being thoroughly sifted, aud ho comes out of the investigation without even a jmaplcion, and. every investigation is making bim stronger with the people. They (tho Confederate Committees) aro oven calling to their aid the Whlaky Ring, as la clearly shown by the Manr Morrilt investigation. The Southern Democrats assort boldly that they want their candidates for President and Vice-Pjesldont from tho North, knowing that with a Southern man as thoir candidate for cither onloo they will bo defeated. They want and will nominate thoir strongest man, a man that can carry enough Northern States, with tbo help of the South, to win. Thus they reason, and it is a sensible conclusion, showing that jhoy intend to make a desperate fight. I hopo tho Republicans will learn and profit 1 hereby from thoir opponents, and nominate tho bent mon for all of our offices. Honjo Repub lican papers aro doing moro harm than good by tho claims of such men as Morten and Conkling, and doing all thoy can to defeat Bristow, by asserting that ho is too far HoutU, and that ho may Johnsonlzo us. When (if a mao is no; too much prejudiced) thoy read bis record, Uiey will find it is os sound ns any man’s Ho not only showed his patriotism by making speeches, but ho wout and fought, and risked his life for his country ; weut as they say “from tho Hontli," where it tried a man’s patriotism. Morton’s record on tho financial question kills him, as wo must havo a haid-monoy man to carry Ohio and Now York, and wo must nave 0110 of thoso States, If not both. Tho split in tho party in Now York in reference to Coukilng’s candida ture shows very plainly that ho caunoc carry that Slate, and. if tho party in his own Htato is uot in favor of him, lie nor his friends cannot expect much strength from other States. Jflaino is my first choice,—has boon from tho first,— Inti think Bristow will niako tho strongest can- . hdato. Therefore, if no is. Uo ought to bo our aoininoo, as wo must nominate our strongest neb for all of one ollices. With Bristow at the icad, wo arc suro of u victory. Ho will draw into our ranks tho liberals, tbo independent rotor, and every other man that Is m favor of reform and an honest Administration. In rcfoicnco to our Htato candidates, I think Culiom will bo tho nominee for Governor. I£o is tho strongest man of tho throe miming end ho will make us a good Govornor. Dr. Powell ono of our candidates for State Auditor, visited us this week, lio reports his chances good. Ho is a gentleman of fiqo appearance, aud X hopo ho will receive tho nomination, as Lippmoutt has bad tbo olfico Jong enough ; and, as lie prom ifted Powell ho would not bo a candidate, ho ought to bo defeated. In our Congressional District tilings aro pretty Uvoiy, and I expect it will bo pretty bot before tho Convention meets. Evorvcouuty in tlio dis trict Ims a candidate, aud it edema 10 bo tho feol inrr throughout ibe district—outside of McLean County—that aomo otliorcnuutj should bavo tlio honor of tho iteptosoutaUvo, as McLean County baa bad that honor over fmiee 'ibo district has been formed.

An then* has rinuyn been a spilt in the party in that ouimtv, would it not bo bolter and would it not unite ti e parly raoro, and could wo not work topotlior i>oro jit harmony, by pivini' tbo nomination to «'»nio man outeldo DlcLuan County?

Then wo can work together harmoniously (which wo must do to »in), aud redeem tbo district.

TothtEMercfTht Chteaoo 2y»6«rw», Minooka, 111,, May 6.—Wo think it U our turn now to present a candidate for tho ofQoo of Treasurer from the northern part of the State. Tho southern and central portion has long mo nopollzod.lhat office, and will not certainly ob ject “to a now deal." Wo would offer as a can didate Daniel Ferguson, ox-Troasurer of Orun dy County. Mr. Forguaon has boon a resident of Illinois twontydhreo years. Ho enlisted in tbo army In 18C2, and while in the active service of his country lost a tog. Ho baa always been a staunch Republican, and was elected on (hat ticket by a rousing majority seven years ago for County Treasurer, and could have boon re-elect ed, but, being a Arm advocate of rotation in of fice, declined to servo a second term. Yon can judge of his popularity in this eocUon by tho fact that ho received tho entire vote of hla township for County Treasurer. Hois aScotch raan filio Scotch always vote the Republican ticket), a successful merchant and baukor, and well qualified in every reaped to fill tbo office of State Treasurer. Lotus nominate him as a token of our appreciation of hie services on tho baltlo-fiold, and simple Justice to our part of tho State. Grundy. SECRETARY or STATE. Special liitpaleh to Tht Chisago Tribunt. Pontiac, May s.— Goorge Hcroggs, of tho Champaign Gazette, candidate for Secretary of State, spent yesterday aud this morning in this city fooling tho political pulse. Tbs War and homo record of Mr. Hcroggs ia such that our citizens became quite enthusiastic over him, and our county (Livingston) wilt undoubtedly be instructed for him. Wo cannot support Har low, his record would bo a dead weight upon tbo tickst; white Mr. Hcroggs would odd strength to it throughout tho Htato. IOWA. NATIONAL AND STATE POLITICS. Srtfial Cnrrttvcnilenee n/Tht Cheano TVibune. Des Moines, May 4.—llia political movements of tbo various Btatoa has mote than an ordinary significance In ibis Contoanial Proßidontal cnm- I'aign. la tbo very outset ovary other political > consideration of local character mast yield to tbo important ono as to vrbo is tbo first cbolco of tbo State for President; then who are tbo mon to repioaont that choice at the Cincinnati Na tional Convention. From present indicatiqnß, bo far oa lam able to learn from tho proas ana persons from tbo various sections of tho State, James Q. Blaine Booms to bo tbo first cboico of tbo Itopublicao parly. To sav tbo least, lowa Is for an able, true, and clean-handed Republican far President. If it should prove that Mr. lilainc docs not possess tho latter requisite, lowa wilt look farther dowu the hsc fur tbo best man. Secretary Bristow has a good many friends in tbo State, and will marshal soma strength,— doubtless will bo lowa’s second cboico. Ho Bourns to boos free from political scandal ns any in tbo list of I'ruuidoiutal aspirants. Gen. Sherman also has friends in this State. Conk hug ucea not look for support boro. lowa has no groat admiration for curly locks, silk stock* iugu, and patent-leather shoos. Morton would far outreach him, because ho is Western In uptnt and education, mid muro Republican. CONKUNO WOULD MAKE AN EXCELLENT EUPBROR, but not so good a President for our Republic as any of the other gentlemen named, not except ing Charles Francis Adams. So, upon tho whole, lowa may be plabod in tbo lint for Blaine first, and, second, divided for Bristow. Morton, and tihorraun. It makes but very little difference in lowa who the Democracy support for any office. A heir action is merely formal. But without doubt tho Democracy of this State will send a irlden delegation to tit. Louis. Among the many gentlemen anxious to repro* resent lowa at Cincinnati os Republican dele gates at largo, I might namo the Ugu. Hiram i’nco, ox-Jjombor of Congress, of Davenport • tho Hon. John Van Valkonburg, of Fort Madison ; 001. S. F. Cooper, of QnunoiT; JudgeC. C.C'olo, of Dos Monica; and Alexander Clark (colored), of Muscatine. Giber nanus, quite likely, will also bo prenontod at the State Couvontrou, ou tbo <Ust rust. For Electors, there is no lack of aspirants. Hero in where tire ‘‘obligation” comes in, and you may sot it down ao a rule that those who seek to get ou the ticket as Presidential Electors have in viow a rrcaulomiii appointment for themselves or friends. This, 0 t comae, does not apply to Uioeo whom the people nook for tbo position. Among those already umutlpned for < Electors at largo. I notice the narmw of iho Hon. James P. Wilson, of Fainlold» M. M. Walden, of Appanoon County; Judge N. M. liubhnr.i. of Cottar Rapids; George D. Woodio, cl SirutU'uoy; aua.s**Oov. W. M.

Hull, of Bloomfield; is also prommonUy named for the same position, and will marshal considerable strength. Ho has boon for several years Secretary of tbo Stato Senate, is well known, and would make a good oflicor doubtless. * For Auditor of State. B. B.

From tho Third District there is to boa change, the lion. L. L. Ainsworth declining a ro-« octlon, This is novel for a Democrat to dcollno re-oloclion to Congress. Out lie la lone some, being the only Democrat elected to Con gress from lowa since the organization of the Republican party. Senator D. N. Cooloy, tho Hou. J. K. Graves, and D. K.

Powers, of Waterloo, the pres ent District Attorney of tho Dubuque District, and from *CB to *7O State Senator from Dlaok Hawk County, is a candidate. Doth those gen tlemen aro able and trno men. and unfaltering Republicans, and aro politically strong in their district. In tbo Fifth, or lowa City District, there aro several candidates named. This district ie now represented by a Granger, tbo Hon. Jamoa Wil sou, of Toma County. Up to within a short timo ho was a candidate for a third term, but political circumstances have induced him to withdraw from the coulost. Tho hold Is now practically loft to tbo lion. Rush Clark, of lowa City, Maj. J. D. Yeung, of Marion, J. L. Williams, of Marshall, and Senator Rumple, of Marengo. There are Bovon counties in tho lowa City District, and nearly aa many candidates. Air. Rush Clark is an old aud ablo member of tho lona City Bar,— practicing lawyer for over twenty years, of marked ability and fine culture, well known over the State as such, and distinguished as a legis lator, having aorvod hla country throe tirnca in the General Assembly, tho second time—in 18C2 —an Speaker of tho House. Ho seems to-day to load In tho contest for the nomination. Maj. J. B. Young, of Linn .County, seems to bo tils atrongost competitor, and will go into tho Con vention with fair strength, although likely to re ceive a passive support only from his own county. Hols well moaning, has ability, and somo legislative experience 5 but ho la ho erratic, politically, that ho has, to Bamo extent, engendered distrust in his Hafoty, as a national legislator, among his politi cal friends. Tho candidates from Marshall Coun ty are not, by any moans, hopeful of success themselves, because of tho unfortunate Post- Olfico muddle into which they wore drawn by tho removal of Col. Schultz au Postmaster by Congressman Wilson. Tho aamo is also true of (louator Rumple, Ho will carry hla county,— lowa,—aud ahould the choice fall upon him it would fall-into competent end worthy bandu. In the Sixth District, there seems to bo no op position to Judge E. 8. Sampson, the present uoumbont. Ho is now serving his first term. In the SoTcuth. or DosMomes District, there uo, liko tho Fifth, numerous candidates who aro anxious to succeed tho Hou. Juhu A. Has son, tho present incumbent. Among those prominently named aro Goo. J. A. Williamson, of D«s Moines: Col. J. B. Commiuga, of Win tered; CoLW. 8. Dungan.of Chuntou. Mr. Koa hdd a long while siuco announced that ho would not again ho a candidate for ro-oloction. This brought to tho aurfaco then who aro desirous tp succeed him. But two years ago Mr. Hasson roado a similar announcement, yot ho whs In tho field at tho elovonth hour, and carried tho con test against tbo bitterest and most formidable opposition in Mb own party over mado against a candidate in this State. Mr. K. may agoin play tho “artful dodger,” and retire all tbo candidates for his scat until two years nonco. If Hasson turns -up at half-past tho eleventh hour, ho will win tho contest. If ho does not, it ia difficult to foreshadow tbo coming man. 0 Tho lion. J. W. McDill, of tho Eighth, or Council Bluffs District, declines a third totm. Col. W. F. Hupp, of Council Bluffs, and William Halo, of Glouwood, soora to bo tho only con testants for Judge McDill’a Beat. Both good amiable men. In tho Ninth, or Sioux Citv District, tho con test Is between tho Hou. Addison Oliver, pres ent iucumhont, aud tbo lion. Jackson Orr, of Boou, tho predecessor of Oliver. Tho contest iu till* district is animated, with tho chances, I am told, iu favor of Cayt. Orr. IN ULNKRAL. There aro no Dislriot Judges to oloot this year. However, there is ono vacancy to till by election,—that made vacant by tbo appointment of Judge RotbrocK to (botiupromo Bench. Gov Kirkwood appointed Col. John Uhano, of Bon tpn County, to till thin vacancy, and ho will be nominated for tho position ho now so satisfac torily tills. Ho was Senator from Bouton County at the time of bis appointment, and resigned to accept tho Judgeship. He is an able man, and is now receiving the hearty Indorsement of the Bar and people for bis good qualities as Judge ■ There aro fourteen Ciroaic Judges to ok/ot this fall, many of whom will ho nominate for ro-electiou, and some changed for bottu mute rial. Il ls quite likely that the BopnWinm dolcga tlou to Cincinnati will pnm-nt 0 mmte for Vice- President. Too indication m.<*'la that Uoorgo W.

Judge John F. Dillon, Senator Wright, and others. lowa is to day pa strong in her faith in tbo Jlopublican party us over. In all tbo efforts'of discontented politicians in tbo Bepnblican ranks, aided by tho Democratic organization 0/ tho State, to create now political organizations, lowa has stood llrm, and declined to run after false goda. and tho shadow of things from which she could not gather greater strength in, not only her political, but her material aua educa tional development as well. lowa does not shield Belknap, nor others of her political public servants, when tlioy prove unfaithful to tboir trusto. The masses of our people are educated to a largo degree.—aro read ers, and comprehend, to as large extent as tho ncop «of any Mow England mate, tlio groat questions of tho day which outer into the gov- Oiumoutai policy of the mote aud nation. _ Cam, Oaducb.

BRISTOW. ADDRESS FROM TUB BOSTON BRISTOW CLOT. The Bristow Club had its origin in the de mand, so generally foil, that the reform move ment ought to bo organized. Everybody recognizes tbo need of reform. Tho state of our politics has novor boon so bad as it is now. Corrupt mon control to a danger ous extent the working of oar political parties, aud ovon tho highest administrative functions of tho Government aro seriously affected by tbo vices of tho age. A member of (bo Cabinet is now standing his trial by impeachment at tho bar of the Honaeo. “ Bings "of miserable, self seeking, groody politicians control moro than ono of our largo cities. Associations for cheating tho Government out of million* of taxes, to whoso schemes officials of tho Government lend thorn selves, havo become so formidable that thoy woll-nlgh defy even tho stroageat assaults. Nor ia this ail. The Federal office-holders aro train- od to work for thoir political chiefs, aud in every oloolion, State as wall as national, thoir well-drilled ranks aro a power which is hostile to tbo freedom of our inelituiioua. Obodiont to orders, sinking their own individual preferences, they aro always to bo found In full forco at tho primary-meeting* whoro they rob tbo citizen of his privilege of selecting hli candidates, and at tbo yolls, whoro thoir numbers tell, frequently with crushing offeot, id contests where, but for thorn, tho result would bo iu accordance with tho oulighteued opinion of the public. This state of things is intolerable, and mast bo HtoDpod. But tbo Bristow Club goes one step further. Wo bohove that thoro mast bo a loader in ev ery movement; and wo believe that In Secretary Bristow wo havo found tbo loader which this re form movement demands. Wo behove, at all events, that the timo to decide on a loader has cotno. Wo believe that tbo people should now indi cate thoir preference, in order that their dele gates at Cincinnati may ratify it, and pl»a« Jn nomination thoso men whom tl>» sentiment of tho American nation has approved. And tho timo is short, —barely six weeks. If it is for ths pooplo to select as Unit candidate for tho Presi dency a mao who is to lead this reform, tho man must be deeded on at once. Noir, men, wo boliavo that Benjamin Helm Bristow la ttio man to load this great movement. Wo point with pddo to his loyalty, bj couspicu oua during the War; to his courage both physi cal and moral, exhibited on the field of hattio, and in the no loss trying aaeaulc upon fraud ami corruption oa,shown in the;** Whisky Jtiug*" to Inn conduct as a citizen, a profoeaioual man. aud an officer of tbo Oovoromeot alwava fjco from aelfieU aims, and marked by an unfaltering and ojuciont discharge of publio duty. We beliovo that be hoe the sort of character which wo wood in this emergency; that ho is not ouly a man upon whom tho deteriorating iutlaoncoa'of po litical hfo have had no effect, who baa paueod clonu and pure through the manifold temptations of a political ooroor; but that ho is moro than this and bettor than this,-that he is determined to nmko war upon tbo system which makes this political corruption possible, and to turn aaido from no difficulty, however formidable, to hcai tato at no task, borrovar pipantio, until tho work bo thoroughly accomplished. o l>ol s oVo . tbttt has the reform of tbo Civii-Snrvico tboroagbly at bomt, and that, wore bo oloclod President, ho, would carry it through. Wo. know that the boat friends of reform throughout tbo land are In accord with him. aud trust him. Wo botiovo that tbo pooplo are everywhere looklng.for euoh a man as bo is —. stroug, foarlcßß, incorruptible, active, ellicieut. fu of publio spirit, devoted to duly. And wo ocliovc, finally, that tbo people will rocoguizo in him tbo man they need. In ordor, tliwoforo, to give effect to our In tentions and opinions, wo have formed thoßria low Club, aud wo urge all who beliovo with ne not to bo contoot with ailont assent. but to or ganize similar bodies, to hold publio mootings, and to promulgate their opinions boldly aud zoalouHly, that those in possession and control of tbo iwpubiican party may recognize that the pooplo have spoken.

To the Editor of The Chicago Trihum: CmoAao, May 4.—Tho question of cheap aad pure modloluoa being onco agitated to yom paper, I think Tub-Tarauif* ought to sot tbi Issue fairly and squarely before tho public. Momentous as the King to defraud tho United States-Internal Revenue, widespread as’the cooKodncßs to rob the United Slates Treasury Is. tho crpokeduoas .in thei medical busings—the Ring between the druggists and the physicians public ftD(i of moro import to the lie who robe our Treasury, steals our wealth! ho who conspires to adulterate our medicines: ruins our health. The -treasury thieves can bo reached by law. and aro bandied pretty lively at present, whUo our health-fiends go about undisturbed, unless the-public assumes tho part of the avenger of law and justice.

It is said on good authori ty HOm ® d Wl Btß pay tho doctors as much mSO per pent, That seems to me is tho point the publio ought to find out before it patronizes either doctor or druggist. Aud what an amount of hypocrisy there sticks. to this Illng of •crooks. About a year ago some convention of druggists made up a code of‘ethics, according to which a respectable druggist was oven forbid den to send his prosoiiptiou blanks with the doctor a name and card opt to tho doctor’s office, Homo of tho most prominent druggists wore most prominent among the supporters of this rooUOD, and delivered emphatic, denouncing speeches on the question; * Tbusly they aotoci in the Convention, but thosa totv men acted diiroroutly and Hooded tha city with their cords attached to some doctor’s blank.
