?ood deal of hard lying as Fremont and bis

It is not olien that enotliocr.of high grade
loses his seat because of his want ot citizen-
ship. The most notable iaslanco we can ro-
call is the caso of Mr. Albert Gallatin whose
seat in the sonato was vacated by a resolution
in 17113 because this eminent statesman bad
not been a citizen of tho United Slates for
tbo timo required by tbe constitution.
If Mr. Arthur is rjected his place will havo
to be tilled by the pre.'ideul pro tern of the
senate. As Ju.liro Tburman retires a new
one must bo elected. Thoy are already can-
vasing the suh)o:t. The un-ce-tuuty
of the position of certain
leiinters rondors it ditlicult to dotermine
wtucu party would be seuiossful in such a
contest. Tho majority too would be smallor
than on ordinary questions sinco the nom-
inee would hardly vole for himself. Porhnps
they might take to Judge Davis or O.neral
Mabone in order to securo him to one side or
tho other. Tbe democrats Boom disposed
to give it to a southern man and talk of
liaard Lamar and Garland. Thoy would
talk of Beck also but be too is a foreignor.
Tbe oflice as it sh mid seem is not a vory
diisirablo tne. The vice-president is always
regarded at Wasniagton as a ugum-nead lo
he tired at by senatorial oratory when in the
chair and be treated with senatorial indif-
ferenco when out of it. Nor does the pros-
dwnt pro tent succeed permanently to the
presidency of the Uuitd Slate in case of
death or resignation. In that event he holds
only until a new election can be held.
Uenco nobody cures to hold it IWe do not
