Greeley in favor of A. H. Stephens for United States Senator.

--After announcing that Mr. Stephens has declined to be a candidate for United States Senator from Georgia, the New York Tribune adds:

‘ "We would far prefer the reformatory convictions and trustful foresight of Mr. Stephens to the merely negative qualities of Mr. Johnson, who, if not quite given over to the mulisliness which characterizes a few of his contemporaries, was never a decided or wholesome actor or thinker, and is unable to digest the present condition of affairs. Georgia has a real Union party, however small, who are the most chagrined sufferers by the ruling process of reconstruction; but there is no hope whatever that Georgia, more than any other late insurgent State, will select her architects from the class of tried Unionists."
