Algrer, wa9 a sample of wliat the party in that state wonld do for Gen. Harrison at the pnlls in November. Gen. Alger, like the true patriot and noble mun that he is, upon learning: the result, promptly sent the following dispatches: Detroit, June 25 Hon. Morris M. Ktee, chuirnian nattonal republican conventlon: Convey to the deleyate- who have 80 loyally RupporTd my candidacy my heartfelt lliankH. No Ríate or man will glve the iillant gentleman who has won theöglit hearlier support than Michigan aud niysulf. "e's all rlglit." R. A. A t.c Kit. Detroit, June 22. Qcn. Ben. Harrlson. Indlanapoll, Ind: Aocept my Incere cougralulatlons for your Buccess fairly won. lt. A. A loer. Although Michigan republicana cannot have the pleasure of voting for the brave soldier they presented to the convention, yet Gen. Harrlson, also a brave soldier, and ;randson of old "Tippacanoe," is ao well and favorably known to them that the dUappointment will be sliht. Hon. Levi P. Morton, the republican noniinee for vice-president, lias alwaj'9 been vcry charitable, but never allowetl liis charities to be advertlsed. In 1880, when congress, moved by the suftering in Ireland, placed the ship's 'Constillation" at the dUpoml of any one willing to send relief to that country, it was Levi P. Morton who stppped to the front and oflVred to give sufllcient money to paj for (inc-tourth of a cargo, but refused to allow the NV. Herald, and other lapers, to give his name to the public. He was IOOB joincd by three other men, and an entile car;o of food and clothing was sent to the distressed people of Ireland. This is only one of hnndreds of such Instances. He has always been considered one of tlie most liberal men in New York state. There will be do tally-sheet forgeries in Indiana thil time.
