ill some correspondent kindly info rm Onelsen Demócrata, as to what has become of Judge Grangur ? Mora tliun two months ago ho gave consent for his Oholsea admirera to publidy ohallenge HoflG G. V N. Loturop i'or a discussion of politica! issues beiora the people of ühelsea; but so soon as Mr. Lotiirop pohtuly accepted the challenge, forthwith Gkanuer backed out, and left his Chelnea JRepublican frionds to stand out in the cold. They, however, consoled thcmselves by afterwards pablisbing a modest cali to the Democracy for a ''joint meoting" of Messrs. Lotaroh and G-bakobr and stated that tho friends of both n-ould come out to hcar them. The Douglas Club of Ohelsea, thankful for email iavors, responded immudiatoly witb n reepoctful invitation to the Judgo, to be present at the proposed "joint meoting," and advocate his own ólaitna to office. But when tho day arrived, Gkangbr shovved the " white feather." and again backed out; siucwiwhich time nothinhas been heard of either Ghanoer, chailengas. or joint meetings. Is Mr. Qrahoxr engaged in writing a history of tho rise and fall of KnowNothingism in Manchester, or in writing hia own uatobiograpny or have repeated back outs proved fatal to hiin ?
