Des Moines, Iowa, Ang. 15. The known acceptance by Gen.Tuttle of the democratie uomiiiation for Goveruor gives the utmost Bntisfaction, aud creates the most unbounded entliusiasin aniong the democracy throughout the State. A private letter froru a prominent poüticiíin, who has visited General Tuttle since his return, and received thia morning, informa me that he has been literally besieged by republican and abolitiou comiuittccs, urging him to decline the nomination, and promising him everything or anything víhicli they suppose to be within the gift of. tho abolition party. It Í3 needlcss to say that Gen. TuUle spuroed all sueh offers, and stands fairly and squarely beforo the peoplu as the democratie standard-bearer, upon a platform similar to that upoa which Gov. Seymour was elected in New York. L5Lr We find in th8 week's íssno of Zions Jlerald the valedictory of Kev. E. O. Haven, D. 1)., for sevcn yeare editoiof that paper, he liaving been electcd President of the University of Michigan. Under hls management tho Utrald haa been ably edited, imd has uniformly shown an excellent spirit. He has also filled many important public positions, lias been a meniber of the Massachusetts Senate for two sessions, a member of tho State Board of Edueation, au active leader in the teinperance cause, and has secured the high esteem of the community by hia uniform courtesy, and his consistent and earnest course in defense of the right and truth, wherever found. We regret his departure from thïs vicinity, and wish him abundánt success and usefulness in his new field of labor. He is to be succeeded as editor of the Herald by Rer. N. E. Cob'eigh, D. D., now resident of McKendree College, 111. -
