Republicans fighting among themselves.

--A correspondent in Addison, Steuben co., N. Y., writes that the Republicans in that section are fighting among themselves like cats and dogs, over the anticipated spoils. They had agreed to meet at the village Engine House on the 2d inst., and vote for a candidate for Postmaster, the nomination of the successful man to be pressed upon the new Postmaster General. When the time came to vote, radicals discovered that the conservatives were out voting them two to one at least, and accordingly an adjournment was declared taken to a little lawyers office that could not hold half the voters. The conservatives insisted that the motion was not carried, whereupon the firemen, who voted with the radicals, manned their engine, and washed all the conservatives out of the Engine House. This put an end to the voting for the day, and it is understood that the whole of the proceedings were arranged beforehand, in view of the possible contingency that occurred.
