The N. Y. Herald has some gossip as
to what may occur, or what may not
occur iu the next Presidential election,
from which wo quote tiie following:
The Republican calculation may be
thus stated: The south, it ls'supposeu,
will cast 138 electoral j votes lor thea
Democratic candidate; the number re
quired to elect is 185. To Carry New
York, Connecticut and New Jersey,
which have in all 14 votes, would give
the Democratic candidate' 182, and he
would look for the remainder from Or
egon or California. But to choose elec
tors by districts in New Y'ork would,
the Republicans calculate,! break this
combination. They have now iu the
House 24 members 'to 9 Democrats,
They would hope to maintain this ratio
next vear', and ifjso they would deprive
the Democrats of 2j of the 35 Presi
dential electors on which they are
counting. This would be, not indeed,
to make a Democratic vifctory'absotute
ly impossible, but very dillicult, with
the 138 votes of the south'. They would,
to succeed, have still to carry Conueeti
cut with six .votes,' New Jersey with
nine, Indiana with fifteen California
with six and Oregon with three in all
forty-eight votesT-and this would se
cure them only one more than a majori
ty; It is believed by sonic Republicans
that on this showing the south would,
before next lall,: lose all hopcotcarrys
ing a Democratic President, aud that
this would prccijdtatc a' disintegration
of the ruling party in many southern
states and bring several of thcyi over
to the llcpublicau side.
The Hcraf-l adds what is quite signili
cant: t - .
There is this much to be said br this
view, that it is frequently aud openly
said by southern meji that if the Dem
ocratic party loses next yeir they will
no longer' act with il. They arc tired
of being out iu the cold, and prefer
S'riendly relations with the ndniinistru
ion aud their share of what is going.
Hence some Republicans'. believe that
if the result cm be lixed fcefin baud,
as the' proposed change! in the New
York law would lix it, ii would only
hasten the coming political breakup
iu the southern staes, aud I hat promi
nent men in several of those states who
are well known to be .lukewarm Deuio.
crats would use the fact of a coming
and assured Democratic defeat to carry
their people over to the Republican

" HAMLIN ANI MA1K.
Some corresponde'it has interviewed
that veteran Senator and noble old
