To the Editor of tho Utica Obeerver : I have not feit that a fow complinientary notices have placed me in the list of thoae acrioualy thought of as candidatesforthe Presidency. Wbile, therefore, I have conatantly answereá to all thoso who have spoken to me on the subject that I could not accept a nomination even in the improbable event that one should be tendered, I Uftve not thoiifjlit that theie waa onough in the suggeation of my name to make it a matter of good taate tcujay anything over my signature, but an article in yesterday'a Utica Heratd may embarraaa others and place them in false poeitiona. It assntaea that certain delegates tbat it ñames aro in favor of my nomination and against that of Mr. Tilden. I know that many of them are his earnest supporters. While some oí them would not bo iu my favor if I was a candidato, I feelthatit)adue to the delégate mimeci, many of whom are wann peraonal f rieuds, to save Uiem the embarrassment of denying the statement that tlioy go to the National Democratie convention with any view of bringing forward my name or opposing the tion of Mr. Tilden. 1 am, trnlv yours, eto., (Signed) Hoiutio Seymoub.
