Special DUpalcfi to Vie Ttilmne. epßmorißLD, 111., May 33.—Although this Is Hie day before the meeting of the Convention, and the clash of arms, the crowd of delegates, alternates, candidates and their friends, and the office-holders and their allies which gorges the hallways of the Lclond and overflows Into the street a, after peering into tho narrow room at one end of tho passageway where Beveridge holds court, in tho double*bcddcd chamber at the other end of the building where Callom occasionally manifests himself, Is greater than that usually present on tho day of the Conven tion Itself. There is a greater collection now than there was four years ago when Ogles by and Beveridge were selected, or than two years before when Oglesby and Logan waged unequal war for the Senatorial prize. Nearly half of the delegates and all the candi date save one arc hero. That honorable excep tion Is Andrew Simmon. There Is A LOCUST SWARM OP CANDIDATES which has descended upon SprlngficH. There are enough office-seekers to furnish one for each table at the hotel, and there they make them selves useful by passing around milk, sugar, and butter to delegates. After meals, each one posts himself In the lobby, bogs all who meet him not to believe the rumor that he has resigned, ex plaining that It Is a yarn started by his opponent, who to reality Is simply the fence or stall for some other fellow. At this moment the Gubernatorial situation Is apparently clear. It is CULLOU AND BONE OTI^ER. Wlicd Washburn* withdrew, oil Ms friends con centrated on Cullom, and the latter nursed his luck with wonderful skill, and lost evening seemed to have It all his own way, with Beveridge nowhere and lildgway like a sinking ship in the dim distance. This morning, however, the situation changed, Beveridge’s warriors returned from points where they have been on duty. The Penitentiary, Canal, Railroad, and Insane AsyluintCommlssioners came marching in, accompanied by all of the household troops, and nt once began cheering one another with exaggerated reports as to Beveridge’s actual strength. Then the attempt was mado to divert the outi-Beveridge vote from Cullom to some unknown candidal#— to some new man. It was claimed (hat the so-called Reform element In Cook and else where would much sooner take Milton flay, or some each man, and that la the general melee llovcrldgi might MAKE A DAROAIW WITH RIDOWAY and slip In. By afternoon, however, It was found that tins was Impracticable, The light was too sharp and too Individual for any eoch division of forces, and therefore, unless some sudden and un expected ualbreak occurs, Cullom la the man. Beveridge is unmoved, however, and is deter mined not to say die till the Secretary of the Con vention reads the roll-call which will be his epi taph. Re, like other Slate-House men, have de serted the building, and are shaking hands pro*, finely at the huteL It Is a contest conducted on temperance principle*, with no refreshments. Uidgway Is disappointed. He has a few dele gates whom ho looked on us bis stock in trade. lie h*ped to hold tire balance of power and to trade them off to Cullom or Beveridge for the Audltorship or Secretaryship, but now his eggs ore spoilt, and, while be la still seeking to trade, nobody cares to buy bis damaged goods. Uo la ready to negotiate with any one on PRETTY MUCH ANT TERMS, but there are no offers for Lieutenant-Governor, on the assumption that, If Culiom|ls nominated, there are two prominent candidates,—Shuman of the Journal, and Jones of Jo Davlosa. The latter la bors under the great disadvantage of having been the bitter and unrelenting enemy of river Improve ments, and, went ho by any accident to become Governor, would assuredly veto any bill on the subject. Tbereloro Canal Commissioner Brainard and a few Cook Comity men have spent the fore noon in placidly sticking knives into Jones, and In consolidating all the river counties against Mm. That element, and Ms recent antagonism to Wash burnt, ought to make short work of Jonua, AD FOR SHUMAN, if bo Is slain, tt will be tn the boom of hla friends, lie stalls off with the special advantage of not be ing on the ground, of not being a solicitor for office, which Is ouch a duaelbig contrast to sumo of tl»e others as to win Mm support. All of the out side candidates for Auditor, Treasurer, etc., want to give the Lk-utenant-Goromship to Cook, so that no geographical ghosts may arise to plaguu them. itutz is an enthusiast fur Shaman, Needle* praises Mm, and Liiuilncott docs Mm reverence. Nut that they love Bauman. hut that they want to eliminate that important factor. Cook County, from the contest. Bat then comes that protean Urentauo. ex-editor of the Uloais-ZeUung and ex-Consul to Drsaduu. who at 10 wanted tube Secretary of State, at 12 dreamed of being Treasurer, and at 2 was willing to be Lieutenant- Governor. lie Is backed by the North Side Gor mans, including William Vocka, and by Elios Shipman, the man In whom Hchm did nut have confidence, —that ho boa been so long out of the country as to bo uukuowa outside of German cir cle*. DR. T. J. ULCTHARDT wants to be Treasurer or someUiiug, and Is backed by Ur. Master, who Is opposed to Bhumen, apart from his advocacy of the Doctor, and also by a ■mall following of West Bide Germans. County Treasurer Hack Is for Shuman. From present ap pearance, ho will pull through, unless bis oppo nents in the Cook County delegation can unite. Uutthle Is unlikely, fur If there Is to bo a Gor man, ItaU seems to be the strongest. As for Secretary of Slut*, Scruggs has made a brilliant campaign, and is ahead. Harlow has fought well, out lias egninst him a feeling that there ought to be a now deal all around, Many delegates bnvo cumo hero as if to u slaughtering house, and they want to sou blood dow. LII'IMNCOTT woks up to-day to a realising eenee of (be foci that there was danger ahead, and bos been labor ing zealously. MsJ. Uruckway, of Cook, has gone forth aiming hie brethren as a missionary in Lip nincolt'a behalf, bearing with him boxes of cigars, the contents of which be distributes among dele gates. All tills la accompanied with lunges at litiveridge whenever possible. It may bo that the desire for a now deal will cease when Harlow dies, but. If U does not then. Needles, of Wash ington, seems to have the lead. The chief objec tion to him is that ho antagonizes Uuu, who cornea from the neighboring County of 81. flair, but it la insisted .that that should not stand in his way. Needles has canvassed hard, and. from present up peaninccs, will carry the bulk of the Cook County delegates, to whom be ha« been making promiscu ous love for a week. DH. POWBLL, OV ntCUbANU, Is looked upon as a Joke of a candidate. He hu stopped singing Icltuious songs, end evoke to be CHICAGO, WEDNESDAY. MAY 24, 1876, counted among Chow who take tcrioue views of life, but It In too late In thr day, Hampton doc# not teem to have mnch strength. For Treasurer, RuU, who wm Rldgway’a pre decessor, la abend, ilia previous term la used agalnat him, built It claimed that til tho money he was paid was pal into a house. Now he mud have money to live In It. Mr. English, a banker of Danville, haa the support of Vermillion and ad joining connllea, bnt RuU load, him heavily. Aa for Cook County aspirants, they have been then* tloncd elsewhere. Foil ATTORNBT-GRNEnALj Edsall has almost undisputed lead. Ilia good for* tune In railroad-tax stills has created n strong senll menl in hlsfavor, which not oven tho hardest kind of work can easily overcome. HenalorCanDeld, of Aurora, would like the place, but la not making a good showing. As far as Inc Presidential question Is concerned. It is plain that a majority of the Convention is fur Ulnlnc, and this majority Is so evenly distributed as to Insure him every dfslrictercepUhalcoinpowd of Macoupin, Madison, <3l. Clair, and Monroe, and possibly tho Eighteenth. Ulnlne’s friends claim that even these will give way when they sec the unanimity of other sections. The result Is doc to the fact that all tho regular politicians wboaro in the Convention are FOR PLAINS OUTRIGHT, and the Bristow cltmcnt from Cook, at. Clair, end other counties Is swamped by them. Add to this (bate. 11. Harwell has been here for Blaine, using all his Influence, and that Gen. Ilurlhut turned up this morning to do what ho could for hla own dla* trlct, 11 In questionable at thin moment whether It la intended to formally Instruct delegate* to Cincin nati to vole for Blame, or simply to elect Ulame men. and then pass resolutions expressive of the confidence of the Contention In him. Blaine has to-day been telegraphed by his friend* that cither otto or the other would be done. It Ib averted by some of bis supporters that tlie delegates would have been left utterly font-loose bad It not been for effort* to secure the election of Solicitor Uluforti Wilson and Supervisor A. C. Matthews an delegatcs-at-largc. This, soy the Blalnc-mcn, would have been taken as Dinner indohsement op aitiatow, and therefore had to be headed off by cither of the plana mentioned above. It Is certain that both Matthews and Wilson wonld like to go as delegates at-large, and It now seems unlikely that cither will be selected. Milton llsy ban also been sug gested os a pet bod against whom no objection could be raised, out be. too, sympathizes with Bristow. D. L. Phillips also wants to go a* a dele gnte-nt-large, and so does Jonathan Mcrrlam. On the other side, there Is talk of Senator Logan anil of Dr. Dobbin*, of (Quincy. If they am help U they do not Intend to let a Bristow man go. From the First Congressional District the men to be selected are J. 11. Clougb and Sidney Smith, and in the Third, C. B. Harwell and Frank Palmer, though some are In favor of County-Treasurer Hack, If they can be assured ho will stick to Blaine. In the Second District, 8. K. Dow la pretty sure. In tho Quincy District, If Dr. Bobbins is sent at large, the men are to be Dr. Davis, of (Jrccn County, and Col. Wood, of Quincy, formerly Special Mall Agent at Chicago, who la a devotee of Blaine. AS FOR THE PLATFORM, nothing is said and little thought concerning it. It Is a general desire to have it short, If possible, and some even speak of leaving it to the National Convention to do all the platform-making. There are no rabid ones here ou finance, and no trouble Is anticipated from that source. In order to avoid the trouole wliich has frequently been experienced In previous Conventions, Gollowny will oiler a resolution to allow the vote of Cook to b® taken by Senatorial Districts- In this way the delays and miscounts which have caused so mueb-.vaxa tlon In the past will be avoided. TEMPORARY OPPICBRS. Special Dispatch to The Tribune. Bmn*nrtKLJ). 111., Slay 23—10 p. m.—A meet* Inc of the State Central Committee was held this evening. It was decided that Gen. Green B. Uamn, of Pope County, should be temporary President, and John Summcrfleld, of Cook, and N. O. Burton, of Adama, temporary Secretaries. Gen. Hinakcr waa designated to oiler formal resolutions in rela tion to calling the roll of Congressional Districts for members of Committees. The Executive Committee then adjourned sloe die. THE SITUATION ON STATE OFFICERS* has but slightly changed. Cnlloin still has the lend, claiming for the tint ballot4oo out of the OH delegates. Thu Beveridge men still profess court dence, but give no reason for tbe faith that Uln them. The relative strength of the con testants Is beet shown by the crowds which pour Into Cullom's rooms, while Beveridge has to go out Into the lobby In search of persona with whom to shake bands. Shuman is also ahead Wilson Is here, but la taking no active part In Shuman 1 * be half. Jones is working, but is nut dreaded. Cook County now* pats In claims to twoolllcers, —Lieuten- ant-Governor and Treasurer.—and there are faint hopes of making such combinations os to secure this result on Shuman and Drcnlauo. The statement that the latter wanted to bo Lieutenant-Governor was Incorrect. Bluthnrdt has been given up by hla few friends, and Mr. Roster, who did not care to support Bren tano, will, it Is said, go up to-id *bt and not wait for the Convention. Buck noi all other Cook County Gormans arc UNITED ON BRENTANO, and ari trying to make arrangements with Scrogga 1 friends, who say they lack but twenty of a majority, to join hands and run both in. Still, Ruta la a strung man, and is far ahead, unless English, Hamburger, or some other candidate should hold tbe balance of power, and cause a hitch in tbe buelncstt. . .... Llpplncott is working ferociously, backed by a strong crowd of assistants from Cook and else where, and Is gaining ground. As things stand, his weakness will be Urn cry raised against a third term. A. M. Babcock, Joe Forrest, and others arc tooting for Lipplhcott, At 10 this morning he was beaten. Now be is on the verge of victory. For some reason all tbe old leaders are for him. Avery Wooro. of tbo West Side, has tamed up here as candidate for Auditor. It la boneless, and the only result of such a multiplicity of candidates will be to lose Cook everything. Presidential}}’, it is still The delegates wbo came In on tl:- evening trains but add to his strength. It is nuw uncertain whether be will carry the St. Clutr District. Rlnuker, of Macoupin, and others are deserting K now appears as If-nclthcr Matthews nor Wilson will go to Cincinnati at largo, or from any district. Tbo present slato fur delegalcs-at-large is: Sena tors Logon and Oglesby, Robert Ingorsoll, and James I. Martin or Dr. Robbins, of Quincy. It is expected that. In case of emergency, lugersoll will do some rpeecbifylnp that will carryall before it. Owing to the counsels of C. B. Furweß and other Blaine men. It ho* been decided neither to instruct for Blaine nor to Indorse him. This bolds good unless some such resolution k> sprung on the Con vention, when it will probably puis. It Is believed to bo sufficient If men known to favor Blaine are sent. Mr. Blolno boa been advised of the statu of nllalm. a. K. Dow telegraphs that he will be nnabte to come down, owing to tbo Munn trt.il, and it is not ho certain (hat bo will be sent from the West Side. The other name mentioned is that of L. IL Olsbce, wbo was Chairman of the lute County Convention. On the Sooth Hide the slate has been changed with the arrival of «w delegates, and now the men to be sdcetal *ro C. U. Kellogg, who is far Blaine first and then for Bristow, and George M. Doquo, who Is for Blaine, In tiis Will and LaSalle District, (he first-named county will send George It. Chittenden, who is half Bltloe, half Bristow. LaSalle lias not yet desig nated her man. In the Third District, the indica tions still point to F&rwull and Palmer. Any Una tow strength in the Eighteenth Ward is swamped by the solid Blaine vote in Lake County. There has boon an overestimating of Bristow's strength hero which hast caused soma perplexity to those wbo came here to represent ms dntercsta. They now pretty generally give it op; and ua for the platform. It la still tbo least considered subject of alb While some want none but l.i-St to be adopted at Cincinnati, others, and Die majority, bold that there must be ouo at all events, it will bo sound oa a rock on the financial question. LATK3T. Special Dispatch to The Tribune* SrnmariKLu, Ills., Way ita—l 11. m.—Some of Callom'a timid friends art: scored by rumors Uiat the Beveridge meu will spring a mine on them In the Convention to-morrow in the shape of affidavits concerning alleged whisky transactions of Cnllom, and also publish certain ugly tiling* which Morrlam saldabout Cullom during their Congressional squab bles, hut the story b rather Improbable, Borne stuff of tbb kind baa been telegraphed to other Chicago papers, but will have no effect on the Con vention. Deverldgu himself is growing shaky, aud Is unking delegates vbat ho hue dona that they should tuna treat him. He closed operations far the night by a private confab with CoL Matthews, In which he set forth bis wrongs. It b now decided that the resolutions, which have been substantially drawn up. shall not con tain any Indorsement of Beveridge's admluUlra- Uon. lUdgway Is still holding court tu his room, and Is still trying to negotiate. His last offer was made tollroutauo. It In not seriously considered. The arrival of Avery Moore and bis aspirations fur the Auditurship have given Cook County Inter ests something of a set-back. If there la any of fice » hich couutry delegates will not give to Chica go It Is the Auditurship, and the whole tiling helps Llpplncolt and Intuits Shuman aud Brentano. II now appears as If Shuman was losing ground, owing to defections In tho Cook County delegation and private hostility of some believed to support him. Junes has workers in the Cook delegation. Blulhardt refuses tu give up, though his candidacy only injures others. BrcuUmo has gained, U any thing. The last proposition to the Cook County delega tion U to lot bhumau go aud concentrate on Bren (auo, bat they fear to accent It, lest they give up something reasonably certain and dnd themselves told out. Lippincott still gains. But little has been said of tha electoral ticket For the First Congressional District George Ar mour bal been suggested. The delegates to Cincinnati from tho Sangamon District will probably be Andrew blmpsou, of Christian, aua U. B. Uransou, of Ueatrd. The former la known to be for Blaine and the latter la believed to be ao. . , Gen. Baum, temporary presiding officer, ta for Rldgway first, but Is expected to go for Cullom on Ihs second ballot, If there be one. Wesley M. Bralnard, Canal Commissioner, la to be elector In the Third District. TUIIITBESTII ILLINOIS CONORBSSIONAL DIB- epfdn l fXtpatc/t to The Tribune. Lincoln. 111., May 23.—Th* following contains full particulars of the Republican Congressional Convention hnld in tills city to-day: The meeting was coiled to order at 10 a. m. in Olllett's Rail, to nominate a candidate to represent this district In Congress, and to nominate a ep.ndl date for member of the finite Board of Equalize- Hun.

They then adjourned at about 2 o'clock, and tbe entire Convention left here at 4 o'clock for Springfield. THE DEMOCRACY. Trbktok, N. J., May 23.—The Democratic State Convention met to-Oay, and resolutions favoring Uio nomination of Joel Parker /or President were received with great applause. The resolutions declare for hard money.

The theory of those who take the Conkltng view of the Cabinet change Is that It evidently means to secure to Mr. Conkllng at the opening of the Cincinnati Convention tho votes of New York, Pennsylvania, and all, or nearly all, of ths Southern States. The expectation proba bly is to secure all except Kentucky, which will go to Ur. Bristow, and Delaware, which has but six votes. If this plan ta successful, Mr. Coukling will thus have U 34 to begin with, beside* the scat tering velcs from other fatales, and there would be little doubt of bis nomination. Of course tbeeu votes would not appear on the first ballot, as prob ably a considerable part of the South will want to give Ur. Morton and Blaine a complimentary vote.

Sptelai QamspcnJence of Ths Tribune. Washington, D. C., May 3t—There la much talk here about thu disclosure* made by the In- Tuatlgatlug Committee*, the reduction of sala ries, the circulation of silver 6ulu, Impeachment, and other Congressional topics; but the subject of subjects, par excellence, Is the approaching Presidential election. As Aaron’s rod, trans formed Into a serpent, swallowed up tho ser pents transformed from the rods of the wiao men and sorcerers of Egypt, so this Presidential question swallows np all other questions here. In twenty-four weeks hence, the election will take place, and, before six weeks have passed away, we shall know who arc to bo the standard bearers of the opposing hosts. It Is natural, therefore, that great Interest should be token in the approaching struggle here, where a large majority of the promlncntly-talkcd-of candi dates are so well known. BENJAMIN HELM BRISTOW has more warm friends and more bitter foes among tbe Republicans, and excites more appre hensions among the Democrats, than any one else. The proceedings of the recently-held Kentucky Stale Convention bave the true ring of tbe glorious old Chicago Wigwam in I 860; and tho certainty that Bristow, should he be nominated, can carry Union principles Southward again by en abling tbe Republican* to carry Kentucky, sorely troubles tho old Bourbon Democratic leaders, who want to make ekln-color the only political distinc tion among Southern gentlemen. Ue Is equally haled by the plunderers and thieves that bang on the flanks of tbe Republican party, whose plotaand schemes he has boldly exposed. Yonng, stalwart, and active, Bristow's mind, as robust as bis body, pi' es him the physical courage to combat crime, no matter who may be the criminal. Of course, his discharge of duty has gained him the hatred of tho-u who hong about tbe White Rouse; and Sen ators who have exercised Imperial and imperious authority know well that he would, If President, exclude from office the horde of political Hessians who has brought so much disgrace open the present Administration. Mr. Bristow resembles, Id many respects, Gen. Jackson. lift never shirks responsibility, or ex cuses wrongdoing; and. if his warm and generous temper sometimes Cuds expression in positive words. Like sunshine broken in a rill. Though gone astray, 'Us sunshine atill. His ardent naturcncvercherisbes rceentnient; and. although he has hcun for some years exposed to the seductive influences of thin Metropolis, he seems to have preserved the original elements of his Kentucky nature in their primal strength. Those who are admitted to his unpretending home forget bis public achievements in the spotless char acter of his private character, his social wit and humor, his thorough khowledge of men and things, and his withering denunciations of all that is mean or ungenerous. While he has a Just solicitude fur his own character, he has steadily refused to be re garded as a candidate seeking the Cincinnati nomi nation, and whatever honest Republican may he selected there In preference to him will receive bis hearty support. TUB CONGRESSIONAL PRESIDENT-MAKERS of ail parties are opposed to Bristow; sod it Is one of the aboard pretensions of those who arc installed on tin- Copitohne 11111 that President-making is one of (heir * * privileges," which they regard as above the law of the land as sdtninlKtercd by Courts of Justice. The Senate hoa always been prolific In Presidential candidate*; and this ycor any one vis iting its reporters' gallery, up behind the chair of the presiding officer, sees before him, seated mid way up on ttic right and the left sides nf the main aisle, two Republicans whose names will be promi nent at Cincinnati.— the senior Senator* from New York and from Indiana. OLIVER P. MORTON, now In his 5-Id year, would anywhere attract otten tlon, as a man possessing great intellectual strength Heavily built, with o massive bead squarely set on bis shoulders, black hair, keen black eyes, and a firm uuder-Jaw, his features are expressive of a strong will that never wuvera, a combative dispo sition, and great reasoning powers. lie Is unfortu nately partially deprived of tho arc of bis legs, which obliges him to use two canes when be walks, and. when he stands op to speak, he leans with one band upon a temporary support. lie is a powerful debater,—reminding old stagers of Daniel Webster as tie throws down the gauntlet In defiance, and clearly defines his positions with consecutive and eulmiuative force. Especially is he aroused when the rights of the emancipated negroes are assailed, or those who sustain them at the Bouth arc de nounced. Then be appears like an angry Vulcan, forging and launching thunderbolts of oratorical power. Ills sentences ore round and fall; bis style of argument is vigorous, convincing, and consecutive; and bis voice thrills through the Sen ate-Chamber like tlie magnetic fluid along the electric wire. When War-Governor of Indiana, Senator Morton secured the devoted support of hundreds of devoted friends, who are always ready to respond to his call. United States Treas urer New Is his right-hand man; but, should he be nominated. Col. Foster, now Minister to Mexico, —u man of great executive political ability and ex perience,—will come here to run the campaign. ROSCOB COKKLINO la emphatically a handsome roan. In the prime of life,—he la 40 years of age,—whose tall, stalwart form, without an ounce of superfluous flesh, nolle* elegance with strength. lie is, since tbe death of Charles Sumner, the most faultlessly—not foppish* ly—dressed man in Congress. Much of hia sandy hair has been taken by 'rime, and ctcq tbe curled forelock, which tbo caricaturists have made famous, has lost much of Its original proportions. lie always cornea Into the Senate a little late, and la apparently absorbed, much of the lime, with bis correspondence, or the documents on bis desk; yet there la no more attentive listener to what transpires In tbe Senate. Ue seldom speaks; but, when he does take the floor, attitudes, manner. and gestures recall the historic bearing of Ileury Clay. Like that Great Commoner, bis voice gives no ’*uncertain sound," os It rings forth with a bugle-like clearness, or sarcastically hisses with coulerapU lie stands in denote as the Achilles of political warfare, haughty la bis confidence, and neither asking nor giving quarter. In his Presidential aspirations, Mr. Conkllng knows that be bos the sympathy and (be support of Simon Cameron, of the wealthy Sharon and Jones, of Frellngbayscn, and of a dozen other Senators, each a power In his respective State. Tbe wealth, the ability, and the b'hoys of Uiu Empire State will be repreaeuted at Cincinnati by hundreds of workers; and nothing that can help bis chances now Is left undone by L. S. Grunt. ALLEN a THHRMAN. Ouo of the back row of comic chairs, on tiro Democratic side of the Senate Chamber, is occu pied by that venerable sou of Virginia, Allen G. Thurman. Ue Is one of the oldest benders, having entered his (kid year, and has a “good old gray head " and beard, with a frank, jkwlUvu face, a manly bearing, und a bluff appearance in his suit of homespun, which would gain him admission Into any Lodge of Grangers. He is a believer in (he reserved rights of the States, yet be acknowl edges the delegated powers of the Federal Govern ment. and Is an especial champion of the rights of the citizen. A lawyer by profession, bo generally Sreases Lis views at great length, and with ter a dngm»tta,manner.—oecsstimally taking snuff, and using a red bandana handkerchief with stentorian cflooh. As a debater, bo has great power, dashing in Ilka a dragoon, and dealing heavy blows without stlul upon those Senators wbo op- Soso trim. He Is especially effective when he pours own withering showers of denunciation upon the Administration, withering some of bin adversaries urosnd him with bis ready wit, and blasting others with bis sarcasm. U was cruel to data pen the pros pects of each a man with 1 * roaring old Bill Allen, M Els undo. THOMAS FRANCIS DATAJtD, the remaining member of the Senatorial quartette of aspirants for nomination, occupies tbe next seat but one to Mr. Ttmnnaa, and U bis assistant as a lejulcrof the Democratic Senators. Us is a year older ttian Mr. Conkllng, but is in no way distin guished in personal appearance, except (bat bis eyes are very weak. Liu voice is rather monoto nous, sod bis gestures an not pleasing; hot ho is a finished scholar, a good reasuncr, and no im petuosity of declamation ever drives blm to the use of vulgar Invective or obloquy. Descended from on old Federal family, his political views are of tbe progressive Bourbon stomp, forgetting nothing, yel learning something as the world moves on.

DAVID DAVIS la not now on the Bench of (he Supreme CXmrt. ta the Judges of that high tribunal have dispersed to their respective Circuits; but he bae left on active following here, who urge hie nomination, either at Cincinnati or at St Louis. Prominent among thusu who checkmated Mr. Seward in the Chicago Convention of IKK), and secured the nomination of Abraham Lincoln, Judge Davis has since been an earnest aspirant for the vote of ouch and every Convention. He come near defecting Horace OtveUy at Cincinnati four yuan since; and now quite a respectable eunbe-r of Democrats proclaim him (he muet available man to receive their votes; while a few Republicans say, "Why lei the Dem ocrats have him I "—Just os John Woslcy had hymna ■ottosome popular uln belonging to driuktug Sungs, saying, 1 * Why should we let thu Devil have the tieat (linear* But 1 fear (hat Judge Davis will die, ae the late Chief-Justice Chase did. an earnest but disappointed aspirant for Presidential honor*.

Special Corrvprmdenre e/ The Tribune. New Orleans, May 18.—“W1k> willbelbf next Governor of Louisiana! n Is now the que» tlon of all others most frequently ashed by thoei who take an interest In State politics In this dty. It Is a question much easier asked than answered It is surrounded by eo many contingencies and possibilities that, at the most, one can only com lecture os to the result. To state those couth* gcucles and possibilities, and leave the reader U do his own guessing, Is all that I shall attempi to do in this letter. THB REPUBLICANS hare called two Convention?,—one to meet fa this city on the 30th of Slay, for the purpose oi electing delegates to the National Republican Convention ut Cincinnati, and the other to mccl June 27, to nominate State and Congressional candidates, to be voted for next falL Tho delegates to the Conventions have nearly all been elected, and I believe that In no instance have they been instructed os to what candidates they shall vote for. The Conventions will be composed of at least three-fourths colored dele gates. The principal candidates in the Held for (ha Republican nomination for Governorarc ex-Oov. IL C. Warmoth,Marshals. U. Packard,and State Sen* alor Thomas C. Anderson. The principal candidates for Lieutenant-Governor arc C. C. Antoine, the pres* cot incumbent; cx-Gov. P. B. S. Pincbback, and James Lewis. ail colored. In addition to these, about half the other colored politicians in tha State, who have achieved either renown or noto riety. are candidates,—it having been settled by prccident, and la now tacitly agreed that the Re- ■ publican candidate for Governor being white, tha candidate for Lieutenant-Governor shall be col ored. Thus this State has bad sines Re construction a constant succession of colored Lieutenant-Governors, comprising Duns, Finch back, and Antoine. It mnst be admitted that they all presided over tho Senate with dignity and abill- ty. The question of who shall be Lieatenant-Oorem* or has necessarily, from the complexion of th« delegates, a strong bearing upon the question o? who shall bead the ticket; end this fact will bavo much to do with making WABMOTH BX.-OOV a formidable candidate before tbc Convention, through Pinchbeck, who is working, for Warraotb, end who will have the second place on the ticket If Wsrmulh La nominated. Plncbback la, without doubt, tbe strongest colored man la the State, nnd be Is on particularly bad terms with Marshal Pack* ard and nearly all the white leaden In the party. So bo has made a combination with Wonnoth, who, notwithstanding he went off with tbe Greeley inurement in 18TJ. la esteemed very highly by a large proportion of the Republicans in tbo State; and, If they are not successful In secur ing tbe nominations, they will certainly prove a rcry acrious obstacle In the way of the aspirations of other candidate.

It bos been stated that MARSHAL PACKARD is no longer a candidate for Governor, bat the statement must be taken with some grains of allow ance. 11 la known that Sir. Packard bos been talked of as a candidate for a year or two, and that, as Chairman of tbe State Central Committee, he has bad abundant opportunity to advance bis interests. In proof of the fact that ho has so advanced his interests, I can state that, in a irge number of parishes, presumably through the iflucuce of Mr. Packard, the Parish Central Com- mittee. whose duty it was to call Parish Conven tions to elect delegates to tbe State Convention, have instead •• elected," or rather appointed, tbo delegates themselves,—thus doing away with ovon the formality of giving “tbe •peoplo ,r a voice In the Government. Onu often bears of tbc farce of primary meetings, etc.; but Ido not remember to nave before beard of doing away entirely with such fundamental preliminaries to popular elections. This Idea of taking from the raok-and-Ale of Uio party the responsibility of choosing its representa tives Is so popular a one with the Chairman of tbo State Central Committee, and with soma other of tbe managers of tbe party, that It was seriously proposed that the Stale Cen tral Committee should appoint tho delegates to the Cincinnati Convention, instead of calling a State Convention for that purpose; and the plan was only lost lu the Committee by a very few votes. It will readily be seen that. In a Slate Convention largely made up in this way, Mr. Packard, having created It,ought to be able to control It; and. It bo wants to ba the Republican candidate for Govern or, there does not seem to be any sufficient reason why bo should not receive tbs nomination from his own Convention. In pus of Ur. Packard's nomi nation, James Lewis will probably be tbs nominee fur Lieutenant-Governor. THOMAS C.
