Ho could not bo pluycd upon by political tricksters, and he failoU to encourage tho i'rcnidential aspiratious of his chief, bonce his aduiiuistration was short-lived. J. Kuasell Young, a clever dis- ciple of Forney's from the Philadelphia was the uext to assist Mr. Oreeley, he did to his outivs1 satisfaction. s career was brief but brilliant. His abrupt retirement IVom the 'I'rilr.ii'.e resulted from his owu duplii it.v. Ho began by seiz- ing every pretext that olfered for the dis- missal of tho ohl staff, and every vacancy brought another of Forney's disciples from I'hiladelphia. Bureaus were ostablishod in different quarters of tho globe for thoso who could not ho dismissed, and the veterans were ordered, in true military style, t j pro- ceed to their lav oil' destinations without de- lay. To tho remonstrances of his associates regarding his lieutonaut's course, Mr. Oreo- ley was deaf. Ho discouraged attaclirueuts ot every kind, and udvWed decapitated editors to ''go West." Young fjooa estab- lished an editoiial ring, and like his veteran patron, ntteiuppd to run two papers (both daily) the T> iirunc and the i'biiadelphia Post, of which lie was principal owner, which proved his rum. Tho Post, wliiuh was known by tho "ring" as the took nourishment from tile '.'.'riimne. Its squeals disturbed tho Associa- ted Press and they demanded Vouug'-, scalp.

Thoir meeting was like two TUoaias caiaon a gardon wall. Young's an- tiftciiy od not a match forKeid's mon- Uacitv; besides, Reid had, while in Wash- IngtiAi, "put money in his purse.'' Reid, while correspondent for the Cincinnati Ga- zette, together with Horace Wkite, who then tho bauio duty for tho Chicago Tribune, did. with unerring audacity, pro- phesy as to the intentions of tho Ways and Means Committee regarding the taxation on whisky. Whether tho information was immediately communicated to their respec- tive is not known; but ceitain it is, that Horace White noon became editor and part proprietor of the Chicago Tribune, How natural that Keid should bo impelled by emnlat ion, ITrhili Ueep was never more obsequious than was ixiw Mr. Oreeloy's now lieutenant. The Tribune founder still mourned for Young, whose ways ivcro so clever. His absence made him morose and sullen, yot wont on as usual. It, however, was not long before tho prin- cipal stockholders discovered that theie was iv baneful influence suirouuding Mr. Oreoley, more subtle, butnot less potent, than before. Mr. Groeloy's over-weouing desire for otlii-o alarmed his friouds. His proprietary inter- est in the paper was anitill, yet his will was absolute. Had his life-long associates had but the courage of their opinions, how easily they could hiivo rescued thoir chief from" tho toils of tho guahiug professor of the new school ofjourualism. Uut fa to decreed otherwise. Tho two men who conceived the plot were actuated by fde most selfish of motives. With one it was oavy; with the other it was avarice. Uofh, in any oront, wero bound to win, as tho sequel w'll prove. They playuil into each other's nauda -with a cleverness that ohftltongesi admiration. Each thorough- ly comprehended the predominant weakness of their victim, and they played their re- spective games successively tt> tho end. Tho tlon, ho visited Judge Piorrcpont at hi residence at Oarrisoiis oil tho Hudson, and while there made n personal request o Mr. Roberts that ho would withuraw it favor of Mr. Grcclcy, which he did a fov days following in a letter published in th Now York llrrul I. At tho opening o tho Com ention everything looked favorable Cornell, Murphy, Judge Hunt and other considered the- nomination of Mr. Greeley a foregone conclusion. But watching his o[ poiiuuity, Charles S. Spencer broke the slat by naming George W. Curtis. This action was in return for tho denunciation of him while counsel for MeFarlaud, win shot Kiohlmlson of tho Tribune. Greoley could novor bo tuado to believe that the leaders hail kept faith -with him, and ho di ohi red war on Murphy and Cornell, wero entirely iiiuocont. Gen. Walbridge however, pacified Mr. Greeloy by pronounc ing his failure to receive tho nomination i blrasing in disguise. Tho General immedi atoly consulted with prominent .Republican. of ashing ton regard' Air. Greeloy's po .liticalprosptscts. He atrongly urged his iiom ination for Vice President. Everywhere ii political circles in Washington the proposi tion wns favorably ontertamed. Cfen. Wai bmlgo being a continued invalid, ho eonh not give the mat tor his Tiersonal supervision and it was now that Gen. Watbridgo begai looking around him for soiuo person in political diplomacy who could 'fix things. It was at this juncture- of affairs that Jflor neo Greeley was brought into eontiiot with the person who was to play an import an1 part in fii.s destiip-. Charles A. Lamont hat come into possession of a patent for the dose icctit ion of eggs, and was attempting, HID organization of u company undei tho name of tho United Sitatea Egg Desiccating Company. The compain never succeeded in getting into operation and never has to this day.

Lamont frequently dined with tho General at tho Astor ilouso where ho noon .succeeded in drawing into h; net several of tho friends. Plnusi hie and audacious, Lament reaped quite harvest. Lamont was recommended by tho General to Mr. Greeley, as a young man ot tact and judgment, and ouo who could man ago nuitt-rs in his interest at Washiiii'tou, Supplied with letK-s to distinguished ofli e'als, ho made frenueut tiips to tho Capital, General Walbiidge died hudduuly at tho Aster House iu this city, and Lament's sad visage and grave demeanor, as one of tho mourners, made him a conspicuous charac- ter ut tho funeral, which took place nt Washington, and was attended by distin- t-itJjicn-i of ovet'T-' whom were the President and h'-s Cabinet.

It was and General Grant thoir aoeoiid meeting, an invited Mr. Greeley to ride White Homo, whore they afterwards dined together. Mr, Grcoloy returned to New York the sauie- evening, but n few weeks following ho again visited Washington; and whilu there was tho guest of Senator Chand- ler. Tho Senator gave his distinguished guest a reception, which was attended by tho President, Vice President, members of tho Cabinet, and the prominent Senators and Congressmen. This was in February, and it was tacitly understood in ad- ministration circles that Mr. Greeley would bo the next candidate tor Vice President. This uuderstiiudiug was tho cause of Schuy- Colfax's early letter of declination, a lor fact never before staled. A trilliug circum- stance upset all tho plans of the political savants. Lamont, while niauoovcring in Mr. Greolcy's interest, was also attempting to secure tho appointment of one Ferguson for the position of United Stut'JS Supervising Inspector of Steamers for cho Eastern Dis- trict. Ferguson jwas tho son of Dr. Ferguson, of Chnppan.ua, an old J'riond of Chuppaqna, Mr. Greolev. Lamont persistent cli'orts wore matlo to en- ligiitcn Mr. O roc-ley as to tho truo situutinu of affairs. JCvery attempt was met with anger nud contempt. Flattery and diasimn- liuion held full sway and Horace Oreeley rushed headlong to his ruin, carrying with him his business associates, who, notwith- standing they luul no heart in the cause, wore willing to share the fortunes of their chief; and to-day, Mr. Orcoley's life-long partner, and onco principal owner of tho paper, who for a quarter of a century toiled him to build up tho Tribune, is bank- rupt, and without an occupation. True it was, when the great Publicist, bowed down by cruel disappointments, broken hopes, and crushed desires, suul I am ruined; the Tribune is ruined, iind 1 h ivc ruined my friends." The last two year.) of llor.ieo Ureoley's life wero passed in mi at mosphore of mys- tery and deceit. 'Iho writer, who from childhood know Mr. Oreeley intimately, and who for a score of years worked on tho Tribune, has been behind the scones, a spec- tator of the fared which ended so tragically. The truo causes which ted Jloraco Ureeley to desert the lit'publioun party have never beon usirruteti. The following ijioideuts, brietly stated, haro uo parallel for inon- ilacity anil knavery. In August, Greeley waa de- sirous of receiving tho nomination for Gov- ernor. His personal friend of thirty years' standing, tho tin.- Ueneral Hiram Walbridge, reviewed the political situation in an ablo letter, which was published in tho Tribune nud Herald of August 18TO. In that he strongly reconuuoiuletl his old .friend for the Oubernalorml nomination, ami General Grant for another term. About the same time the Committee of the Kepublican State Committee met at Saratoga, and appointed tho day of meeting for the State Convention, At that mooting ,tho strength of various persons was cau- yimsod, nud the Hon. A. 11. Cornell strongly pressed Horace Ureeley for tho coining cam- paign. Notwithstanding tho objections urged from the northern counties, it was fin- ally decided Horace Ureeley wiw tho strong- est man to run, and a committee, amoiig whom was Judge Ward limit, waited on Mr. Ureeley and urged his acceptance, to which in his peculiar manner ho assented. It was known that Marshall O. Roberts had strong claims on tho party for the nornma timi, but so desirous was" President Grant I that Mr. Orcolov should receive the nomiua- knew tho advantages to bo derivcil by con- tact with the manufacturers of lifn saving apparatus. The President directed tho ap- pointment sant iu but Ferguson was re- jected by tho Senato. Pereiuou kept Lu- mont iu funds peud'ng his confirmation. Lam out now presumed on his intimacy with the President, with whom ho had hud sev- eral interviews, ostensibly in tho interest of Greoloy. The President finally fathomed Lainont's chat-actor, nud denied him further audience. Mr. Greeley bolieved Lamout a uiau of property with 'large business inter- ests. General died in tho same belief. Lamont freqnoutly referred tj tho fact that his business demairled his indi- vidual attention. Mr. Greeloy's admiration for tho youthful diplomat was such gouorous devotion ho had novor before experienced. Mr. Greoley hid docidcil on a trip to Texas, ostensibly to leoluro before an agricultural society, but really to feel the Southern pulso on nig return trip. It was now that liumout began to instill tho poison into Mr. Greeley's ear. Chagrined at the frustration of his schemes nt the Capitol, ho began by inueudoes and hints to create doubts iu Mr. Groolo.y's mind regarding his political prospects. It was in May, 1871, that Mr. Groeloy, never iinspccHug THE TnEVCIICliV OF IUS EMISSAHV, gave manifestations of his discontent ith tho administration. Tho entire proifrnnuno of his trip was altered. General Merrott, who had been but recently removed from the Naval otlico, and who was Senator Fen- ton's right hand mini, was chosen as his traveling companion. Mr. Greeley's im- maeulate lieutznniit played his part to per- fection, lie never attempted to penetrate thu veil of deception in which his chief was wrapped, but persistently fed the ll.imo ('Id readers of tho Tribune wero astonished to read such sentences in the lending edito- rials on the political situation, ns tho follow- ing: ''Shall wo sail on or drift in tho light moaning tho campaign. "It ia one thing to suppoit tho administration and another to support, tho President." Wo support tho administration." "Be it under- stood, then, throughout tho Republican party, our imfricndlinoss to General Grant is, at all events, not concealed." Mr. Greo- ley wont to Texas and what transpired oil tho route homo everybody knows. It was now decided that Mr. Greeley must have a private headquarters. His emissary rented a furnished resdeneo in Twenty- fourth stivot, and he and Mr. Greoley wont (hero to residj. Hero wero hatched Iho conspiracies that pro- duced tho sheet-iron thunder for tho liberal organ, lloro Lindsay, of Custom House and Ludlow street juil notoriety, plotted with Larnont and Keid, and tlio Cooper Institute- meeting was tho result of their labors, and their slogan wna "For- ward to Cincinnati. Itrcruiting the iorward movement was tho next act in tho comedy. Forney, Sain Bowles, Murat Halstead, Horace. White, Wattcraou and Knapp were reported all right. Tho only break in tho editorial circuit that was feared was Manton Marble and Wilbur F. Storey. Marble came in at the last hour, but Storey would not have it. TKRKIULK T ILLS wore now reported from Washington. Tho Professor iu tho Tribune shouted ''corrup- and hia confederate told of tho wicked scenes ho had witnessed in and around tho White House and tho "Arlington." Charles A. Dana, in a spirit of bitter irony, placed at the head of the Suit, "for Projidout, Greeloy." Everj-tldng was now nt tho flood, and to cap tho climax, tho Blair fam- ily held a meeting at Washington, whoro tho was made out that scaled Iho fato ot Horace Greeloy. At that moot- ing wero Blair senior and junior, brother Montgomery, Sunset Cox, Ethan Allen nud a few others. ICthnu Allen was there to urge Horace Grcoley's claim, lil.iir, senior, scut words of good cheer to Mr. Grceloy, and Allen returned to tho city overjoyed. Then en mo tlio Fifth Aveuuo Hotel Conference, where the famous editor- ial trio, Held, White and Wnttcrson rallied tho Liberal host and laughed to scorn tho croakers. How they did chuckle, when SDtnotimo after midnight they hopped into a coach at tho front of hotel and directed cabby to bounce them. Jaic was along, also, the brilliant man of the Now Vork Tribune. Tho two'Tribunes had settled the destinies of Iho nation. The most ridic- ulous scene iu the Liberal movement was enacted at Cincinnati. Not a half doi'im men understood the actual situation tho evening following tho first day's proceed- ings. After midnight arrived from St. Louis Senator Frank Blair and his oousin, Governor H. Gratis Browu. Brown's pres- ence iu town kept a secret. Tho ar- rrtngenioiil was that on thorfollowing morn- ing a carriago was to convoy him to tho rear ot this Ai'iiue-mv, and on tho announcement ot HID lu-st ballot, he was to suddenly ap- pear on the platform nud carry tho Conven- tion tor Groole.y. It is only "tiiuo unfolds what plighted cunning hides, honce tho saddest part of tho narrative remains to be told. The last two years of Horace Give Ivy's life wore passed iu nil tttmoaphoro of mystery and deceit. Encompassed as ho was by confidence men, is it to be wondered at that he was ruined I Lear waa never more mighty hi big wrath than Mr. Greeloy at nay reflection on his judgment of men; and jet mutual friends of President Grant and uimself endeavorac to harinon'zo matters by cxpos.'.ng tho de ceptions which had been practiced. Gen. P II, Jones, postmaster, to whom Mr. Greeley was much attached, acquainted him with, convincing facts, but it was too lato; Presidential maggot had entered tho great brain. Benjamin F. Camp, ono of Mr G reeley'a many debtors, [approached a we! known staff officer cf General Grant's dur- ing tho war with a proposition that he shook induce the Poeaident to order the paymenl of an alleged claim of hia against ornment for or more, which would reconcile Mr. Qreeloy. No person who knew Mr. Greeley need bo told that this was ti fraud. 't'hifl gentleman, who is well known in this city, and ou whoso authority this statement is made, spurned tbo proposition; but there was un ex-postmaster of this city, whose estimate of the President and Mr. Qreeley waa so low that he actually did, upon tho representations of C'anip, goto Long Branch ii'id nmko tho proposition to tho President. OPlittATlNG IN KOO STOCK, Iu his ofiiee ho displayed ounce boios con- taining the article, which, when fresh, poss- essed a very Ofjgy" odor. Letters from Mr. Greeley were scattered about hia desk, the peculiar ohirograpby of which Lnmoiit would refer to. lion. Calvin H. Hurlburd, Superintendent of tho New York Postoftice, General Walbridge's representa- tions, invested General Pieasanton also thought it a good investment to tlio ex- tent of several thousands, besides several others. All this time Lamont hnd never said money to Mr, Greeley; but now there waa an immediate necessity tor machinery. Mr. Greeley assisted his friend to the extent of in cash. No.it Colonel Ethan Allen, Chairman of tho Liberal Na- tional Committee, was invited to call ou Mr. Greeley on the affairs of the compnign. Allen soon beoamo fascinated with the egg scheme. Finally, Lament remarked to Alleu that Mr. Griieloy hnd requested him to let Allen have a slice. Tho stock wa.s all taken, hut he would Jot him have worth of ilia stock, and should ho at any time desire to return it, ho would allow him seven per cent, for tho use- of his money. Fortunately for Allen, his eyes were opened by a friend, whoso teeth had been cut. Mr. Greoloy had never made such a request, aud whou ho at last became convinced ot tho hollownoss and treachery of tho man, ho managed by stialogy to brmg him into bis presence, where, with menaces and maledic- tions, ho demanded tho return of his money; but it was too late. It had gone "where the woodbine twiueth." Other victims are now clamoring for their money with no bettor Before referring to tho tnifiie ending of this conspiracy, it will be necessary to ox- plain other baneful influence which was now dest 'oyiiig Mr. Greeley. Previous to Prohident Lincoln's second' nomination ----41-. J...__ nioro positive knowledge of tho changes m the political undercurrent in Washington was communicated by his Washington 'sperm1." What was required was PLIABLE YOUTH, NOT OVER and one having access to tho various politi- ;nl centers. Such a one was not Samuel Wilkcion, then the Tribune but Whitelaw Keid. of tlio Cincinnati filled the bill, and ho was engaged >y a triond of Mr, Greeley's, at tho modest salary of twenty-five dollars per week, to render this secret service, lloid divided his illegianco between Secretary Chase and Horace Greeloy, but tho Secretary received ;ho lion's share of tho service. Keid did lis little utmost to defeat Lin- coln's renominntiou in tho interest of Chaso; but it was about as futile nu effort as his ibiifto of President Grant, As a recognition of his services, he was tho bearer of Mr. Jhaso's letter of declination to tho conveu- lu June, Mr. Greeley engaged Reid to assist his managing editor (Young) n running the "Tribune machine' during ho Presidential campaign of thnt year. ;lis coming was entirely xmknown to Young. The first week there was a little unplens- intnoss. Young's order for Reid's salary- was only half the amount agreed upon be- tween Mr. Greeley and Reid. This, how- ever, was remedied and honors made easy Jeid receiving tho same salary as Young. They both buried their hatphots, but loft 'he handles sticking out. This armed ncii- ralicy waa never suspected by Mr. Grecley, 10 being about as much of a stranger to ;ho Tribune editorial rooms as tho Sultan of 1'tirkoy. On an unlucky day a Tribune edi- or encountared a foster brother of Young's n Philadelphia, to whom Young had written numerous confidential letters in which ho had unfolded all his plans for the entiro Tribtine concern, .'hoy had quarrelled over some spoils, and ;he _ foster-brother wanted his scalp. tfeClintock camo on hore, but seemed loath o give tip tho letters' If ho Lad uny. qualms of conscience, they were removed iftor having hud a oluuaeatiiio mcotliifr with {old at his residence on Second avenue, Che letters wore finally published by Dana, md tho mandate of the Associated Press irdored Young's dismissal. The Tribune was obliged to obey, notwithstanding Mi'. Grooloy's remonstrances. Reid's complicity vith MeClintock was never suspected, oven o this day, paitioularly as he had extended lis sympathy to Young in his di- omraa. It was by such maneuvering that REID MOUNTED THETRIBUNE SADDLE. Never was tho influence of a great journal o shamefully prostituted ns under the management of this vain, stiff-necked, self- uflicieut prig. He originated ft now school if journalism, and in the capacity of [jre- roptor urged tho practice of the cardinal 'irtuos as essential to success in the profes- ion. How thoroughly ho exemplified hia loctrines and precepts was demonstrated Vom day to-day in the Tribune columns. For a time, he with others of advanced ocial views, was a frequent visitor of Vic- oria Woodhull at her palatial mansion on Murray Hill. She was flattered at his at- entiou, and sought to enlist his influence in idvnnepjg her peculiar doetrinaa. At one i'hia visits ho saw, in the vestibule, tho veil known hat and cloak of a prominent luunpion of woman's rights, who has since been prominently identified with her in- ereata. Tho evidence of tbo close prox- inity of this golden-haired Apollo prompted bo Professor to enthitse" ou tho ocial question. He became radical that ho was obliged to remonstrate with him iut nevertheless urged him to infuse some f his social warmth into the columns of the Tribune. Reid's ardor, however, cooled, nd n few days following thia flow of soul" o requested a friend to obtain from Mrs. rVoodhull a file of her paper. His motive was not apparent at tho time but in the Tribune of the 10th of May, 1871, Mrs. Voodhull was tho subject of ft two-column copious wiih extracts from Wood- nil Vlaflin's Weekly, the object of which rticlo was to allow that she waa in favor of irostitution. His reckless libels oil Senator Jauieron and Governor Hartraiift, during he Pennsylvania campaign, wore BO pul- iablo that they wero novor heeded. It was lot until Mr. Groeley reached Pittsburgh, in tho evening of tho 19th of September, hat tho scales fell from his eyes. Filty rbouuand people had filled tho streets >f that cily for two days prc- eding his arrival, viewing the proces- ion iu honor of the soldiers. Tho tainenoss >f his reception disheartened him, and iu his poerh he angrily discountenanced the uimitainiujT of the pride and pomp of war, lo returned to this city utterly despondent, o rind his invalid wife prostrated. Well might he have exclaimed "Hero is my journey's eml; hero in my rn', Ami very son-murk, of my utmost sail." Tho death of Mrs. Greeley was uu event vhioh her family had long been propnrc.il or. A fter lier death eamo IIOUACE OHEELET'S CBUSII1NG DE3TEAT, vnd it waa this, and this alone, that killed lim. For years a stranger to home com- ovts uud pleasures, there was now nothing o dispel the black and ugly mass of grief hat oppressed him. For years frauds of ivcry description, from the millionaire's outcast son to tho petty swindler, had it-eyed upon his purse, and ho wrote to a rioud of forty years' standing "Having lo.st, by indorsing, nearly all I yer made, aud being unable to ef- liciontlyas I onco could, I have i Irmly eaolveti hcueefarth to work for my own 'umily rather than others." But his work was done. Crushed iu mind, c died tho viotiui of inisropreaeutatiou and ruud, the enormity of which ho never roal- Tho most distinguished men of the nation ollowed tho deceased Publicist to his tomb, lore and there in tho cortege was an em- loyo who had known tho fouuiler of the fribuht; but standing under the shadow of 'rinity spire were a Knot of men who hud Missed tlio best part ot their lives on tho 'ribune. The pressure of tho hand, now Kissing them cold iu death, they had felt hue and time again, and no one knew better ban they the causes that led to this solemn cone. Each eould have said truthfully, Not on mo tho deep damnation of his aking off." Tho Tribune died with its ioun- but immediate efforts were made by Mr. Groeloy 'a old associates to so secure tho that tho paper could bo resusciated. Conctuilcil on Fourth THOS. T. TASKBH.
