It ti certainly a thing both interesting and instructive, at this particular time, when the air begins to grow thick with the shadow of the coming conflict, to note the sudden in terest manifested by tbe opposition journals in the claims of the several candidates for the approaching Union nomination. One after another they fling out their colors for this or that prominent adherent of the loyal cause; and the tone of well-simulated frankness and fairness with which they support their selec . • _a .1, n *f.u.lmiwalinn of oil ,1’lut uuiw, mv»•» — appreciate High Art. One leading journal is greatly exercised lest tbe Republican party should disgrace itself by ungratefully ignor ing the eminent services of General Fremont. Another talks glowingly of the financial abil ities of Mr. Chase, every one of whose meas ures, by the way, whether wise or unwise, it has never failed to abuse. A third, in a still higher strain of generosity and self-abnega tion, recommends General Grant as the candi date most sure of success by the popular vote. All this is very delightful, and calculated to enhance our appreciation of the unselfishness of human nature in general, and the opposi tion party in particular. Still, cautious people will be likely to suspect the existence of some kind of a fiat under ipeh a surprising quantity of meal, i'fiej »*nr - -rr naturally ask what ulterior purpose is to be served by uus «77n den assumption of interest in tbe aflairs of their opponent*. Can it he that, grown des perate with the lailure of many plans, per ceiving their fast waning power, they seek, by sowing dissensions in the ranks of loyal men, to escape their otherwise inevitable de feat? It must be admitted that that is very much what the whole thing looks like. They know the value of the maxim, “ Divide and conquer.” They are wholly reckless of con * sequences, for, like their friends and allies, the secessionists, they have adopted the principle of “ rule or ruin.” They cannot hope of their own strength to break through that phalanx of loyal Demo crats and Republicans which, compelled to contend on the one hand with open, on the other With secret traitors, still stands the sure bulwark of liberty and law. Rut if they could see it divided in its aims and its spirit, then, indeed, their hopes would rise; and hence this sudden interest in the matter ol Union nominations. We cannot feel any great degree of auxicty on account of the direct effect of all this special pleading. The recommendations of these gentry are not of sufficient weight to carry with them any dangerous intiuence.— Rut they do contain a lesson which should be heeded. Tbe fact that the enemies of Lhe government labor so hard to sow dissension, should he a warning to its fritnd* of the dan gers which dissension must bring. Aud we fear that this danger is not sufficiently felt.— There are indications that loo many of the sincere lriends of the loyal cause do not ade quately feel the necessity of union among themselves. They earnestly desire the good §t the country, the triumph ol the govern ment, and the suppression of the rebellion; * but they want these objects achieved in their own way. Personal preferences, and that partizan spirit which has too often been tbe bane of re publics, are]obviousiy allowed to have an un due influence. Men, the sincerity of whose patriotism is a thing beyond question, are in danger of throwing away their influence by subserving to partizau cuds. Let every man take heed that he is not thus made the instru ment of tbe selfish and ambitious. The les son of laid, and the tale of the once almost om nipotent Democratic party, should not he for gotten. Whcu dissension entered its rauks the sceptre passed from iu hand. The party of the Union will do well to heed the warn We do not propose to discuss t?io merits ol different candidates for this undesirable hon or. The financier aud the diplomatist, the general who has done much, and the general who has had no chance to do anything, we let them all pass. Individually we are free to confess that if we have a preference, it is for the one mau who, since this struggle began, has never considered himself before his coun try. The man who, if lie has displayed no brilliant originality of genius, has shown him self the embodiment of the plain common sense of the common people; who has never flinched from a painful responsibility wln-u it had grown to he a duty, yet who never, from vanity, or t4e desire to shine, has been eager to risk in hasty measures the precious inter ests confided to his care, but who, treading steadily and cautiously the path of the golden mean, has received from the radicals of both extremes such an equal measure of abuse that It may be deemed the best tribute to the wis dom of his course. But the main object is not who shall he the standard-bearer in the coming conflict. It is that whoever he be, he may receive a cordial and undivided support; that there be uuion among the friends of the loyal cause. The fate of that sacred cause depends on them. Let them, forgetting minor dill'ereuces, stand firmly, shoulder to shoulder, aud they are invlucible. But if they divide, there is before them a miserable failure which shall make them the scofi' of all the world, aud postpone to a far remoter future the return of peace to our bleeding land. Epsilo.n, jy The proposition to put a duty on for eign wool that will be almost prohibitory, will be looked upon favorably the wool-growers pf our State. Boot and Shoe Mnnutacturing. The boot and shoe manufacturing business is gradually becoming one of the most impor tant branches in our city. A few years ago tbe extent of the boot and shoe business was to manufacture to measure, for the people of the city and immediate vicinity, with two or three wholesale stoies and a limited number of establishments where boots and shoes could be found, ready made. Thirty years ago a dealer whose sales reached $8,000 a year hardly dared to mention the amount aloud for fear his word would he doubted. Then sheep skins were sent to Massachu setts to be dressed, the shoes were there cut out and returned to this state to be sewed and made up, then sent back to Lynn or some other Massachusetts town to receive their finishing touches and boxed for the market, au 1 then came hack to this slate to he worn, the consumer being charged, in the price he must pay for them, four freights, in addition to the cost of slock and manufacturing. Now the skins can he tanned aud dressed and the shoes manufactured in this state, not only for our own people hut for the people of other states. Those who have a curiosity to sec some thing of what is done in the shoe business in this city, should stand on the corner of Middle and Union streets some pleasant day and watch the movements in front of Smith's Block, on Union St., or rather Shoe Manu facturers’ Block, as it should he called, and notice the dray loads of leather going and coming; and the large number of boxes of shoes and boots that are constantly being re ceived and delivered. The North store is occupied by Messrs. Breed A- Tukey, where will lie found ail the v&riouB articles used in manufacturing kid, morocco, cloth aud other kinds of hoots aud siloes. Four or five men are constantly em ployed in tilling orders lor slock aud receiv ing the manufactured goods. These shoes are manufactured in diil'erent parts of thu slate, and a demand for them is found in nearly all our large towns and cities. Their sales can < not fall short of a quarter of a million dol lars annually. They also have a morocco manufactory oil Portland street where ton or iweive uicu arc coiiHiiuu) ciii^ki^cu. The South store is occupied by Messrs. C. J. Walker dc Co., who are also exteusively engaged iu tbe boot, shoe aud leather trade, together with sucli articles as are required in the shoe manufacturing business. For several years they manufactured their shoes iu the building, but more recently they supply man ufacturers with tbe stock aud icceive ol them in return their shoes aud boots. Their stock of leather, as well as of bools aud shoes, is generally large, embracing every variety. Their upper leather is tnaiuly obtained in this state, while the most of their sole leather is purchased iu New York. Their sales will exceed two hundred thousand dollars a year, their busiuess each year steadily increas ing. A portion of the second and third stories over the store of the Messrs. Walker <V Co.‘ is now occupied by Messrs. H. L. Morse A <V>. They commenced busiuess iu tbiB city about l<Ar yeois »n,l have been gradually iucreasiug until their sales in this city smt Kentucky, where they have a wholesale aud retail store, will amount to $50,000 or $00,000, a year. Their busiuess is uow done by selling the stock aud taking the shoes iu return, in stead of manufacturing iu the building they occupy, enabling them to do a large business witii less care aud perplexity. Mr. Morse is a practical shoe manufacturer aud under stands thoroughly every department of the business. The second story over Messrs. Breed <fc Tukey’s store, is occupied by Messrs. Wal den & Caldwell, who are engaged iu manu facturing principally ladies’, misses' aud chil dren's cloth, morocco aud kid hoots and shoes. They are industrious, enterprising men,attending personally to their busiuess, aud have secured an extensive trade. Their sales amouut to some $40,000 a year. In the third story are Messrs. M. & G. H. Walden, who are engaged in making shoes aud boots of every description. They have one of Blake's patent cole sewing inachiues, with the aid of which 15 men can get out 250 pairs of heavy sewed shoes iu a day. It is contended that if the work Is carefully done it is no more liable to rip than if the sewiug were done by baud. This machine, which costs about $500, must eventually lessen the expense of manulacturing shoes, as it will do the work of four meu. A l»oot or shoe can be sewed by a skilful operator in M0 seconds. A pair of heavy double-soled Balmorals, cau he made from the rough by one man, in an hour, a large proportiou of the work formerly doue by hand, being uow done by machinery. This enterprizing firm is prepared to do any part of the boot and shoe making iu the best manner, and at tbe lowest rates. Tbe business now dune in that block is not far trom $750,000 annually, giving employ ment to 200 or MOO persons. The bats Gen* Wudsuorlh. Gen. Wadsworth, recently killed in Virgin ia, was oue of the most estimable men of his State. Possessed of great wealth, he was nevertheless a true man, aud never more hap py than when contributing to tbe comfort of 111050 around nun. lie nad a reputation in the army tor the excellent care he took of those under his command, lie would not let them suffer if thoughtfulness, providence and ingenuity could prevent it. A writer iu the Evening Post, who saw him at his headquarters only a few days before his melancholy death, when preparation for the advance had already commenced, gives some interesting incidents of the war, which show his intrinsic goodness of iieart. All surplus baggage was ordered to the re®, but still the General, looking through the ex igencies likely to arise, was disposed to take along with him such articles ol comfort as could be Arried without seriously adding to the soldier's burdeus or materially impeding his movements. “Make out a requisition for extra shoes,” he said to one ol his brigadiers, “about one pair ol shoes for every two uieu. 1 think we can get them of the Quartermas ter, hut I will see to it that at auy rate they ate got. They will not be heavy to carry, and we shall tlud the value of them before we get through.'' We copy from the Post: “I remember,” the General added, “during the march through Maryland, before the bat tle ol South Mountain, we passed over a tract of country extremely rugged and stony, and I saw not ouly men hut officers waikiug aloug with bleeding leet. The men’s shoos gave out entirely, it hurt my feelings more than 1 can tell you, to Bee the good fellows trudge aloug so. We came to a town on the line mmarch, aud I, who was riding at the head ol the col umn, spurred ahead to see if there were not some shoe stores where 1 could purchase what were needed for the meu. All the shops were closed ; the first meu I saw were two sitting outside of a closed shop. “Are there any shoe stores in this town f” I asked. They replied, iu a gruff way,that they could not tell, there might he and there might not. I told them that 1 wanted to buy siloes for my troops, who were barelootcd. They replied that they guessed X would uot get many. “At that,” said the General, I got angry.— Said X, there are two pairs of shoes, at any rate, which I see on your leet. Take them off1 t instantly! I shouted to them. They were obliged to do it. 1 went through the town, and took the shoes off every man's feet 1 could see; aud thus I raised about two hundred pairs in all. One Hue old fellow, a miller, whom 1 me‘t, 1 did not deprive of his own pair; 1 rode up to him aud ashed if he had any shoes he could spare me, describing the pitiful condition of uiy meu. The old man said, "1 don’t know if there’s any shoes in the house or not, hut’—looking down at his leet, —‘here’s a pair you’re welcome to at any rate.’ I would not let him take them off, hut he gave me some from his house. All the rest I strip ped. Gen. Wadsworth was in his fifty-fourth year when first placed under lire, so that his age, at the time of his death, must have been about 55 years. lie was a gentleman, a man of high and noble aims, a true patriot; he did not count bis life procious—he held it cheap if by its sacrifice the cause of Uniou aud liberty could be bcuelilted. He expect ed much from the carnpaigu; and had a high opinion of the efficiency of the army and its lighting qualities, os well as of the capacities of Gens. Grant and Meade. He felt that af ter much tedious Vaiting the, time had come when there would be no more delays nor playing at war. And he had unwavering faith in the tiiumph of right principles and of liberty and Union. The State of New York, says the Post, has lost, iu him, one of her best citizens, one who did much good during his life to the cause of popular education; whose voice and purse were always at the service of the humble and oppressed; a true and devoted friend of free government, and of all that could advance the happiness, intelligence and prosperity of the whole people, and secure equal rights to all. He gave his life as freely as in other times he gave his money; and he left his splendid house aud undertook llie hardships of camp-life as readily as though he had been the poorest citizen of the State. It will be well if his example is not lost upon his fellows. His wealth did not make him less a patriot; whatever he hail was for his country’s use— for he was a true Democrat. Wounded Maine Soldiers. We are indebted to Mr. Fkedk Brackett, Quartermaster General’s Office, for the addi tional list of the Maine wounded, who came into hospital at Washington on Friday last.— We omit the names of the hospitals in which they are now stopping, but will preserve the original list so as to give information. We give the location of the wound in all eases in which we have information. Mr Brackett says: The wounded are all to be brought from Fredericksburg to this city. I will transmit additional lists of the Maine wounded as they arrive. Most ol the wounds are slight, thus lar, as not much artillery was used uutil Tues day or Wednesday. Many of tho men are wounded with buck-shot, which betokens a scarcity of ammunition among the rebels 3d 7/ep. —Elisha McIntosh, corp’l C II Bisseller, U it Avery. 4th Reg.—Corp’l Edward Hall, E McMahon.

The wide demand for our Cabinet Organ* kaf induced dealers iu some taset to advertise quite dif ferent in trumenu as Cabinet Ouuasi, and In others to represent to purchasers that harmoniuma aad other reed organs are the same thing. Tata ta hot Tatfi. The excellences of the Cabinet Or gans which have given them their high reputation, arise not merely from the superiority of their work manship. hut also iu large measure from bssbbtial lnvfKBUtca* ib constriction. which being pat ented by us, cannot be imitated by other makers. From these arise their better quality and volume of tone and capacity for expression. Every Cabinet Organ has upon its name board in full, the words, “MASON k 11 AMLIN CABINET ORGAN.” When a dealer represents any other Instrument aa a Cabinet Organ.is usually a mere attempt to •ell an Inferior lLstrnment on which he can make a larger profit.
