The scene when the rtiMilt of the sixth
ballet was announced to Mr. Greeler. is
thus described : 41 At five ruinates of three
o'clock the Hon. llenj. Wood entered the
Tribune counting: room. His fine face
was flashed with excitement. He passvd
behind the counter, and inquired for Dr.
Greeley. In breathless words he an
nounced the nomination to Sain Sinclair.
Before Mr. Wood conld be .nshered into
Dr. Greeley's presence, Tom Me Walters,
one of the Tribune's .ld office bovs, ran
lightly np the stairs into Dr. Grrelry'
office. The "Doctor had begnn a freh
editorial article. I lit gold pen was dan
cing over a broad sheet of foolscap with
lightning rapidity, lorn b.ir.dcd him a
dispatch. Dr. Greeley took hi pen cro?-
ways between Ins teeth, turned partly
aronnd in his easy chair, bent toward the
light, and read the following through bis
gold-bo wed glasses : ,
Cincinnati, May 3.
Horace Greeley, Tribune, N. Y.
You 7ere nominated on the Rixth ballot.
D. II. Wm. t Assox Stager.
Dr. Greeley threw the dispatch in his
waste basket and drew ff hip glaees.
Theshrewed boy Tom ftVnfd the dispatch
out of the waste basket and shoved it into
his vest pocket as a souvenir. In a se
cond Mr. Sinclair and ihc Hon. Ilmjiniin
Wood were in the room tbaking hands
with the noble vi loran, and warmly con
gratulating him. Dr. (jm-i ley aro?e. Ilia
face was wreathed in eni'lrs. He was
pleased, and honestly expressed his plea
sure, liut when the mail clerka, the re
porter?, the pressmen, ill compositors,
the ofhoe boys, the pterpoty pcrs, and
other employe of the Tribune rushed up
the stairs and over helmid htm with
genuine expressions of pleasure, the heart
of the good philoff pher waj touched with
honest pride. His countenance reminded
one of a summer morn in June. He re
peatedly shook hands, and thanked all
for their kind wi-hes
The Court sustained the conslitituonali

trated to the remotest streets ar d alleys
shouting out llu ir extras with the nonii
nttionof Hor-ice Greeley. Crowds sur
rounded the bulletins, and hearty cheers
rent the air. Men stopped each other on
the streets, and expressed their pleasure
at Dr. Greeley's nomination. Everybody
even Uie bootblacks spoke of him as
Horace," " Good old Horace," " Honest
old Horace." All acted as though their
warmest personal friend lud received the
nomination. In some instances woiking
men through threw their h its in the air on
n-cciving the news, and rolled out lusty
cheers. Irishmen, German, colored men,
Americans, all hailed the nomination with
iovftil eati.-fiction. The feelinff anions
the Democracy was ontspoKen. I ney
faiily gloried in the nomination. Many
well" known ward leadeis expiessed their
intention of sending delegates to the
Democratic State Convention instructed
to vote only for national delegates pledged
to sustainDr. Greeley's nomination. All
referred to Mr Greeley's undoubted hon
esty. " He won't steal, and that is enough
for me," shouted an ex State Senator,
"and he's the only man that has been
nominated for years, by either party, who
can't be induced to steal." This was the
BEN. BUTLER ON AMNESTY.
Ben Butler brings in, on the 3d instant
this bill :

This is, of conrse, election clap-trap,
