Niles, Mich., May 31. —The Republican delegation selected at the recent State Conven tion at Grand Rapids lu the Cincinnati Conven tion was regarded as a unit for Blaine. But on a recent trip, somewhat extended, through Southern mid Central Michigan, I discovered a strong Bristow sentiment, and 1 liave it on good authority that there Ist likely to be a division of the delegation when it comes tucast lt« vote. Blaine, of course, will get the Bonn share of tho twenty-two votes—«»y IK. But, in the event there should be a break on Blaine. Bristow will be the second choice. Had the State Convention been delayed until now. Bristow would l*j Urn strong to allow Blaine to get a full delegation.

Peoria, May 20.—1 n your Issue of the 27th Inst, you designate the Republican platform adopted by the Springfield Convention as •‘monstrous.” Iking one of the memliers of the Committee on Resolutions, and knowing the views of » large number of the gentlemen composing that Committee, I desire to em phatically protest against what I toiow to 1m a wrong construction by you of Its principles. The matters In the second resolution, refer- Ing to the Southern States, were believed to bo warranted by the aetlon of those States elnco the almost universal amnesty granted to tho Confederate leaders by the Republican party; their action In endeavoring to turn the South- n States over to the Confederate Democracy.— in driving out by the ballet those whom they could not control by the ballot,—should be met by some counter-declaration. equally strong, by tho friends of tho Union men of the South; and certainly thin resolution Is none too strong for that purpose. If the Republican party, in their dcsiro to cover up tho “bloody shirt,” leave the Union men, both black am) white. In tho Southern Staten, without guarantee of protection, we would, in my opinion, be recreant to our duty as good citleens, and false to every pledge of protection which tho Republican party bait made to them. The fifth resolution, referring to the credit of the Government, designated bn the financial part of tho platform, declare “that it in the duty of tho United States to redeem every promise It has mado in absolute good faith.” Now, as 1 understand It, and an others like mo understood It, the United Mates Government has. by a positive law, fixed up on a lime for the resumption of specie-payments. If there Is any “rug-lmby” In tIUH part of that resolution, or that which follows, lam unable to sec it. It was considered by the Committee that It was the policy of the Republican party to return to specie-payment ns noon sh It could practically be clone' without detriment to the public In* lorcHi*; and. in proof of that fact, I will dtate that u resolution thought to bo tending in that direction was almost unanimously voted down. There were gentlemen on the Committee who supported my views, that the great Stale of 1111* Hide ought to declare specifically and positively her po'itlon upon the question of finance; and, lead lb nut been thought bent on the whole to refer this question to the National Convention, some such resolution would undoubtedly have been passed, or presented to the Convention for it* action. Tho Idea advanced by you. that It la a “rag-baby” platform, wan never entertained by the Committee; nod I do not believe that the language of tho reso lution will Justify any such construction. Hod this not been the year for a National Convention and the formation of a national platform, there would have been a necessity for some more pro nounced declaration on questions of revenue and reform. The Committee—believing that i re * tumid not A tire In a national contest one ut of principles for Illinois and another for Pennsylvania, or some other Slate, but a broad national platform, covering every question of fl nance. revenue, am! reform, upon which the Ro* of all the States could unite—referred s question to the National Convention to solve and to settle, and lam content to abide the wisdom of their policy. t , To the sixth resolution there Is, in my mind, some objection. I destrvd to amend it by giving some more emphatic declaration of our fudoije ment of Secretary Bristow, believing that he, more than any other man, U entitled to the credit of saving the Republican party, if it should bo wired, from defeat; and In this 1 was seconded by other gentlemen of tho Committee; but, with amuf amendment, the resolution, though not fully satisfactory to me. was finally adopted, if there Is n failure in the platform, it is upon thin point. Without any disparagement to Mr. Blaine or other honored unrt distinguished candidates who have done valuable service to the HepuhUc, and who are moat worthy of a Presidential Domination, tho Republican parly cannot hope to succeed unices it places Itself fully In accord with, and carries out tho policy pursued by bccrelary Bristow in bit efforts to break down the most un hallowed conspiracy against the public welfare and tbe honor and Integrity of onr Government, except the late Rebellion, that has ever existed; and, If this conspiracy la broken up, to Hecretary Bristow belongs the praise; and I sincerely hope that tho Cincinnati Convention will find It to be to the host Interests of tho people of this country, and to the welfare of tho Republican parly, to fully recognize his distinguished services to the nation and to the party, by placing him in nomination for tho Presi dency. lie U a platform about which there can bo no question, aim no two constructions. Tuero Is ono resolution, tho seventh, condemn ing tho policy of the Confederate nomocracy In Congress in their wanton removal of the maimed and crippled soldiers from tbo position* of honor and trust In which they had been placed by lbs Re publican party for their fidelity and devotion to tin Government In Us hour of need, and replac ing them by men wbo fought for * u „‘H ß , #w A ut .‘I 0, If Bit* resolution Is a ‘•monstrosity; If Ul ° Ift* publican party can stand quietly by and sec Ibis Llsplaceinent and disgrace visited upon the truest anJ the bravest of her sons; If she cannot resent an insult of so monstrous a character, then Indeed ill,! days of our pride and glory numbered.
