REJOICE WITH THOSE WHO REJOICE. The telegraph brings us the news that * Horace Greeley has been unanimously nominated by the Baltimore Convention as its candidate for the Presidency. As we write, the boom of artillery resounds from tho State House Square, voicing the enthusiastic favor with which this announcment is received by the Democratic masses in Richmond. We rejoice with those who rejoice, thus loudly ; we arc happy. First. Because we admire and love Horace Greeley as a noble American man, who, by the energies of a strong head, and a t warm heart has made himself a high place r among his fellow men, who has used the influence thereby gained, generally, upon ■ the side of truth and justice, and for tho 0 elevation of our common humanity.

All those in need of assistance hasten to meet the returning hunter at the landing, and sit down silently by tho shore. This is a sign that they ask for aid; only the infirm or orphans sends persons to represent them, and the hunter divided his prize without expecting thanks or restitution, lie rarely receives other thanks than tho expressive __*_■' of tho recipient.
