'Tuesday, May 28,1872. How a President is Elected.—Each of the United States is entitled to as many electors of President and Vice-President as it has Senators and Representatives in Congress. In each State the electors are chosen by a plurality vote. That is, if there are three sets of electors voted for, the set having the highest number of voters is chosen. But a candidate for President, in order to be successful, must have a majority of all the electors. The electoral college, as now constituted, consists of 317. Therefore 159 are necessary for a choice, If there be three candidates for President and neither of them receives a majority of the eleotoral college, then there is no choice, and the election goes to the House of Representatives. The House must confine their choice to the three highest candidates voted for by the electors. Tho Representatives vote by States, and each State has but one vote ; so that the power of Delaware is as great as that of New York. Each State has ...

SONNET—(With a Letter.) BY JOHN G. SAKE. I send this letter, Oh, my sweet! to tell The old, old story of my heart's deep wealth Of tenderness ; and of my body's health; And how in all things worldly I am well: Which thou wilt gladly hear. It holds not much Besides, to pleasure thee. It bears no word Of fond affection which thou hast not heard Leap from my living lips. Well—l will touch My mouth unto the leaves caressingly; And so wilt thou. Thus from these lips of mine My message will go kissingly to thine. With more than Fancy's load of luxury, And prove a true love letter, warm and sweet As ever yet a loving spouse did greet! Dunch for Humorists. A student defines flirtation to be "attention without intention." A man's politics are sometimes made known by the paper worn in his daughter's panier. "Come into the Varden, Maud," is the way in which musical mammas urge their daughters to try-on their new calico dresses. What I know about candidates, by Dr. G—. In May plant your candy, ...

Stanton[j^riator. Tuesday, June 4,1872. Special Telegram. The following special telegram was received last night at 8 o'clock : Washington, June 3d, 1872.—"Senator Lewis' amendment to the Bankrupt Jaw, giving exemptions of 1871, passed both houses." The Bayonet Act. The first time in the history of this country that the writ of habeas corpus was suspended was in 1863, during a state of actual war. That was intended to aid in suppressing the "rebellion." The suspension act of 1871, which Congress is now called upon to prolong, in order that the President may run it for his own benefit at the Presidential election, was found in a time of profound peace. The proper title of the act ought to be "An Act to re-elect Grant t»y putting the bayonet to the throats of enough Southern States to deprive them of suffrage and defeat the opposite candidate." — If this can be done at one election, it can at another, and thus the Grant dynasty be perpetuated. —! -—♦- A special telegram from London to...

THE VOICE I LOVE. So soft and low Like rippling flow Of murmuring stream, Where fairies dream, Each echoing tone, Sweet music's own, Falls deep and still, With holiest thrill, In spirit cells, ' Where ever dwells , The answering tone It wakes alone— The voice I[love! Like silver bells, Its echo tells, In gentlest strains, How still remains Beneath each peal The heart can feel A power more strong Than thrills in song, Or echoing swells From sounding bells— A power that lives On joys it gives— The voice I love! Each varied sound Within the bound Of "high" and "low," And "fall" and "flow," Of "sweet" and "strong " And "deep" and "long," Brings each a joy Without alloy; An answering thrill That echoes still; Where sweetly rolls And glad controls The voice I love! Like song of bird, Or wind-harp stirred By gentle breeze From murmuring seas, Or echoing note The soul hears float From angel choirs, When heaven inspires The dying saint, Till earthly plaint Blends deep and strong With angel's...

%twntan Tuesday, June 11, 1872. Grant's hope of election. The friends of the election of the Radical ticket—Grant and Wilson—now base their hopes of success upon the idea that the Baltimore Convention will nominate a third ticket. !JJhey feel assured of Grant's election, if the Baltimore Convention shall nominate a Democratic ticket, and they flatter themselves that the Democratic party will be guilty of that supreme folly—ay, criminal blunder. The Washington Correspondent, "Ariel," of the Richmond Whig, whom we know to be a man of character and talents, says that he "knows" that the friends of Grant's election are engaged in bribing Democrats to favor the nomination of a third ticket at Baltimore. The fact that the friends of Grant's election favor a Democratic nomination should be of itself sufficient to satisfy Democrats that it should not be done. The nomination of a third ticket at Baltimore, would not only be the proclamation in advance of Grant's election, but the death-knell...

Widder Sprigging' Daughter. Twas on a beauteous summer morn, When things were up and comin', And all among the punkin vines The bumble-bees were hummin'; I took an early half-mile walk, As every body orter. When in the cowpath 1 was met By Widder Spriggins' daughter. Her eyes were black as David's ink, Her cheeks were red as fury, And one smack of her luscious lips Would bribe a judge or jury. I bow'd—she curcheyed just the way Her nice old Mar had taught her ; She smiled—and oh ! my heart was gone To Widder Spriggiri's Daughter. Says I, "My dear, how do ye do?" Says she "I reckon finely;" Says I: "Of all the galls I Know, You look the most divinely" I snatched a kiss—she slapped my face, In fact, just as she'd orter! "Behave yourself, how dar you, sir I" Cried Widder Spriggins' Daughter. Just then an old rampageous sheep Who had been feeding near, sir, Squared off, and like a ton of bricks He took me with his head, sir, I landed in a pond, chuck full Of frogs and filthy water, And ...

"Tuesday, June 18, 1872. NEARLY ALL ONE WAY. So far as we have observed, all the Democratic State Conventions which have, up to this time, appointed delegates to the Baltimore National Democratic Convention, have appointed a majority of delegates in opposition to the nomination of a third ticket and in favor of supporting Greeley and Brown, with the exception of Little Delaware, which has three electoral votes. In reference to the action of that State, the Richmond Dispatch says:— "Little Dela. goes the Straight Dem. Ticket," in which she is "all aloney." She goes against the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments. While she was agoing, why didn't she go against flies and mosquitoes, or any ineradicable nuisance? She is not only plucky but facetious." Of those who oppose Grant an overwhelmingly majority are opposed to the nomination of a third ticket— all who favor Grant's re-elec-tion, favor a Democratic nomination; for they know that such a nomination would ensure Grant'...

The Whistle. "You have heard," said a youth to his sweetheart, who stood While he sat on a corn-sheaf at daylight's decline, "You have heard of the Danish boy's whistle of wood? I wish that that Danish boy's whistle were mine!" - "And what would you do with it? Tell me," she said, With an arch smile over her beautiful face. "I would blow it," he answered, "and my fair maid , „_ ~ . . . _ Would fly to my side, and would there take ncr place." "Is that all you wish for ? That may be yours Without any magic," the fair maiden cried; "A favor so slight one's good nature secures," And she playfully seated herself by his side. "I would blow it again," said the youth, "and the charm Would work so that not even modesty's check Would be able to keep from my neck her fair arm." She smiled and placed her fair arm' round his neck. "Yet once more would I blow, and the magic divine Would bring me a third time an exquisite bliss, You would lay your fair cheek to this brown one of mine, And your lip...
