Tho Governor was anked what courHo should bo taken in case ttome compromite of principies might be necossary to secure his nomination. "Sacrifico your candidate," was hib prompt, alniont abrupt reply. The worda ahow wliat kiiuíof man is Got. Tilden. Uo knovn no such thing aa compromiso where principie is involvod. Ho eau be awerred neithor to the right nor to the left from what lic regard au his path of duty. Happilj neithcr tho compromiso of principie nor the candida toV sacriüce ha boen dema nded.
