THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing o Company. POLITICS AT THE CAPITAL. The republican territorial convention has been called to meet at Helena on the 27th of September, two days after the democratic convention will have been held at Deer Lodge. Now that both conventions have been called and the primaries are soon to be held, there is a good deal of quiet talk going on as to who will be the standard bearer in the coming fight. No one seems to be laboring for the prize, but there are quite a number "in the hands of their triends," and ready to make the sacri fice if they are called on. Among re publicans there is a sanguine feeling, and many of them believe that if the nomination is a wise one the candidate named on the 27th will be the next delegate to congress. It is only fair to say, however, that the democrats talk in precisely the same manner, so that somebody is likely to be deceived in the premises. I learn from good authority that ...

The Scandal Denounced by Watterson. LoUIsvILLE, August 17.-Heurh tersbn returned from Virginia 1$e to day, and in answer to a question as to the Blaine scandal said that he long'ago discredited it and dismissed it from serious consideration. He had occasion some fifteen years ago to look into the matter, and had found nothing which could justify the impeachment of Mrs. Blaine's virtue. He had encountered at the time nothing but shadowy surmises and irresponsible gossip, possessing none of the qualities of proof, Shameful Outrage. AUGUSTA, Me., August 17.-The Ken nebec Journal says: It was discovered about tw o weeks ago that the date of the birth of the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Blaine, which died ip July, 1854, had been carefully chiselled from its monu ment.

Evidence of its bale ful presence in not less than five Jersey herds in this state are overwhelming, and great fears are expressed that the great infection has only dawned upon us. The fears were set on foot some two or three weeks ago by the bureau of ani mal industry ; now there is no room to doubt the unwelcome fact. The nature of the trouble was first suspected by Dr. Trumberer, of Sterling, who was in the employment of agriculture.
