The subjoined card speaks for it
self. It is to be regretted that the
legislative nominees of the highly
respectable Convention which nom
inated Mr. Magnln for the of lice of
Clerk, should have combined their
Influence against him on the ques
tion of irrimilarity of nomination.
He was nominated fairly and by a
lanre majority. The nominees for the
Legislature tacitly accepted noini
nation at the hands of a Convention
which they now denounce; indeed.
Mr. Harris, tho nominee for tht-
Senate, accepted in a secch.
It is to I? deplored that a man'
fortune "glosses over any faults with
which he may be charged" ; nay,
more, it is a sad commentary on
public virtue that such is a fact. We
feel that we have a right to speak
thus plainly, it having been agreed
to read the card at every precinct.

the following causes, viz : That the

for the various county oflices is be
ing exerted to its utmost extent
against me and in favor of Mr.
Hunting; and owing totneiurtner

with which he may be charged ;
while, on my side, I have not a dol

contest further would only result in
the election of the Democratic can

carry a larger vote than Bunting,
out witn me aoove nameu mnu-
