It was a "sense of duty," says a recent Washington dispatch, that camed Presideut Grant to nomiDate Vice-Admiral Poktkb to be Admiral. That effeotually disposes of the "magoanimi'y" dodge. If uot, tho same dispatch intinteB that the President ia not in favor of Porter's oor.firmntion. Tht is the Senate'a "duty" not bis. Mu. Dkake, of Missouri, having resigned his seat in the U. ö. Senate, to accept the position of Chief-Justice of tho Court of Cluiinp, Gov. McCi.uua hns appoiuted Hon. T. D. Jkwett, of St. Louis, as his suoecwr.
