Accepting: Uic Republican IVomlna
tiou for Vice -X'resi dent.
General Logan, Republican candidate for
Vice-President, has writen a letter accepting
the nomination "with a grateful heart and
deep sense of its responsibilities." General
Logan then enters into a discussion of
the auestion of nrotection to American
labor, of which he says
vious no'icv of our
protect both capital and labor by a proper
itmrcitinn nf rintfps. 1 his protection should
extend to every article of American produc
tion which goes to build up the general pros
perity of our people'
He thn discusses "our monetary system."
His remarks on this subject are summarized
in the following sentences: "Our system of
curmirr is n:ot admirable in construction.
While all the conveniences of a bill circula
tion attach to it, every dollar of paper repre
sents a dollar of the world's money standards,
and as long as the just and wise policy of the
Republican party is continued, there" can be
no impairment of thn national credit There-foiv-
under present laws relating thereto, it
will be impossible for any man to'lose a pemry
in the bonds or bills of the United States or hi
the bills of the national banks.'
Inter-state, foreign commerce and foreign
relations arc next considered. He thinks
'that there is mucli to be desired in the way
of equitable rates and facilities of transporta
tion ilia1, commerce mav ll w freely between
the States themselves, diversity of "industries
and employments be promt t.nf in all sections
of our country, and that the great granaries
and manufacturing establishments of the in
terior may be enabled tj send their products
to the senboard for shipment 10 foreign coun
tries relieved of vexatious restrictions aud
discriminations in matters of which it may
emphatically be said 'time is money,' and
albo of unjust charges upon articles des
tinel to meet close competition from the
prtxluctsof other parts of the world."
"With reference to the South American re
public he says: ''Politically we should be
bound to the republics of our continent by the
eldest ties, aud communication by ships and
railroads should be encouraged to the fullest
jKissible extent consistent with a wise and con
i arvati ve public iolic v. Above all, we should
ie upen such terms of friendship as to pre
ilude the possibility of national misunder
I a 1 liu: between ourselves and any of the
mruuVrs of the American republican family.
The be.--t neihod to promote uninterrupted
peace between one and all would lie in tho
meeting of a general conference or congress,
wher'lv an agreement to submit all interna
tional differences to the jwaceful decision of
frien.JIy arbitration might be reached.
He' devote a paragraph to the subject of
our foreign relations, in which he says: "The
great morrl force of our country is so univer
sally recognized as to render an appeal to
arms by u, either in protection of our citi
Wiiis abroad or in recognition of any just in
ternational right, quite improbable, "What
we mori need m this direction is a firm aud
vigorous assertion of every right and privi
lege belonging to our government or its citi
zens, a well as an equally linn assertion
of the r.ghts and privileges belonging to the
general 1 aun'y of American republics situated
upm this continent, when opposed, if ever
they shi ull he, by the different systems of
government up n another continent"'
The question of equal rights of citizenship
next claims hi attention. On this point hesays
that while, theoretically, we are hi the enjoy
ment of a government of the whole people,
pra tically we are almost as far from it as
wo were" in the ante-bellum days of the
rejMibli". There are but a few leading and
in Imputable fa"ts whHi cover the whole
statement of the case, in many of the South
ern States tho colored population is in large
excess of the wlute. The colored eople are
Republicans, as are also a considerable portion
of the white people. The remaining portion
of the latter are Democrats. In face of this
incontestible tnith thee States invariably
return Democratic ma joritis. In other States
of the South the colored people, although not
p. majoritv, form a very considerable body of
the population, and with the white Republi
cans are numerically in excess of the Demo
crats, yet precisely the same olitieal results
obtain tho Democratic party invariably
carrying the elections '
Ot foreign emigration the letter says:
""While it 'is the policy of the Republican
party to encourage the oppressed of other
nations and offer them facilities for becoming
useful and intelligent citizens in the legal
definition of the t2rm, the part' has never
contemplated the admission of a class of ser
vile people, who are not only unable to com
prehend our institutions, but indisposed to
become a part of our national family, or to
enbrace an- higher civilization than
their own.'' Concerning civil service he
says: "I am in favor of the highest standard
of excellence in the administration of the
civil service, and will lend mj best efforts to
the accomplishment of the greatest attainable
perfection in this branch of our service.'
Mormonism, the letter asserts, should be
willed out, official dishonest)' promptly
punished, "our obligations to the defenders
of our country should never be forgotten,1'
the eight-hour law should be enforced, our
navv increased, the public lands be reserved
for free homes, and our present Indian policy
be continued and improved upon as our ex
perienee iu its administration may from
time to time suggest

Another Thilling Chapter of Aro
Dispatches received by the secretary of the
navy and General Hazen at Washington from
Lieutenant Greely and Commander Schley
announced the safo arrival of tho Greely Re
lief expedition at St. Johns, N. F.
The expedition had been successful, but the
sueccss was marred by sorrow, as eighteen
out of tlie twenty-five men who formed the
Gresry party had perished from hunger and
exposure beforo the relieving party reached
When rescued, on June 22, the survivors
were in a most deplorable condition, many
having been frost-bitten, and all dying of
hunger. In forty-eight hours more all would
have been dead. Sergeant Ellison had both
hands and feet so badly frozen that they had
to b? amputated, but he did not long survive
the operation, and he die! on July 6. The
others are rapidly improving in health.
The vessels that composed the relieving ex
Ied.ton were the Thetis, commanded by
Coniman ler Schley; the Bear, in command
of Lieutenant Emory, aud the Alert, com
manded by Commander Coffin.
Both expeditious are regarded, from a scien
tific standpoiut, as tlie most successful tliat
have ever beeii made into the frozen regions
of the North, and as all of the records of cb
servatious bearing on the researches of Lieu
tenant Greyly have been preserved,tho impor
tance of his intelligent efforts cannot be over
estimated. For the first time in a period oi
three centuries America can claim the proud
distinction of having penetrated to a point
nearer the pole than an)- other country on the
globe. The fii-st announcement of tlie safety
of Lieutenant Greely was made in the follow
ing dispatch from Commander Schley to Sec
retary Chandler, "dated at St Johns:

Eighteen of the twenty-tivo persons com
posing this expelition perished by starvatiou
at the I'fOint where found. One was drowned
while sealing to procure food. Twelve bodies

now on board be placed in metallic cases here
for safer and better trau-portation in a seawa'.
Tin appears to me imperative. Greely aban
doned Fort Conger August 9,lSS2,and reached
Baird Inlet September 29, following, with
the entire party well. He abandoned all
his boats and was adrift for thirty days on
an ice floe in Smith's sound: His perma
nent camp was established October 21, 1SS3,
at a point where he was found. During nine
months his party had to live upon a scant
allowance of "food brought from Fort
Conger, that cached at Payer Harbor and Cape
tsal e 1 1 by Sir George Nares iu 1675, but foun I
much damaged by lape of time; that cached
by B-'ebe at Cape Sabine in lS'SJ and a small
amount saved from the wreck of the Proteus
in IVsJ. and landed by Lieuts. Garlington and
Colw ell ou the beach where Greely's party was
found camped. When these provisions were
consumed tho party was forced to live upon
boiled sealskin strips from their sealskiu
clothing, lichens anil shrimps preserved in
good weather, when they were strong
enough to make exertion. As 1,300 shrimps
were required to fill a gallon measure the
labor was too exhausting to depend upon
them to sustain li e entirely. The channel
between CajH) Sabine and Littleton island did
not close, on acc 'lint of the "violent gales all
winter, so that 240 rations at the latter point
could not be reached. All of Greely's records
and all instruments brought by him from
Fort Conger are recovered and are on board.
From Hare Island to Smith's sound I had a
constant aud furious struggle with ice in im
passable llotis. Solid barriers of ice weip
overcome by watchfulness and patience. No
opportunity to advance a nule escaped me,
and for several miles the ships were forced to
ram their way through ice varying in thick
ness from t'arej to six fet, andwhen rafted
much greater. The Thetis and Bear reached
Cape ork June IS. after a passage of twenty
one days in Melville Baj with tho two ad
vance ships of the Dundee whaling fleet, and
continued to Capo Sabine. Returning seven
days later, we fell in with seven others of the
fleet oil Wostenholme Island, and announced
Greely's rescue to them in order that they
might not bo delayed from their fishing
grounds or be tc motel into the dangers of
Smith's So'md in view of the reward of $25,
000 offered by Congress.
Returning across Melville bay we fell in
with the Alert and Lock Garry off Devil's
Thumb, struggling through tho ice. Com
mander Cottln did admirably to get along so
far with the transport so early in the season
befcre an opening hud occurred. Lieutenant
Emory, with the Pear, has supported me
hroughoat with great skillfulness and un
flinching readiness in accomplishing the great
dut3' of relieving Gre.dy. I would ask in
struction ab nt the Look" Garr", as the char

since their rescue, but were critical in the ex
treme when found and for several days after.
Forty-eight hours delay in roachhig them
would have been fatal to" all now living. The
H'flsiin north is late and the closest for years.
Smiths snmd wa not open when! left
Cape Sabine. Tne whiter about Melville bay

This great result is entirely" due to the un
wearied energy of yourself and the secretar"
o" war in fitting out this ( x Kxlition for the
work it has had the honor 1 3 accomplish.

orightly, but bitterly cold.
After considerable trouble we steamed

were, and a horrible sight met our eyes.
Lieutenant Greely. Brainard, Fredericks,

The party ou the ice looked as if they could
not live five hours, they looked s: feeble, not-
"withstanding the almost superhuman strength
they had shown when we reached them. Slow
ly, ono by one, seventeen of tho party had
yielded up their lives to the demon Starvation.
One of them, the strongest, had gone sea!
hunting. Ho never returned. He wai
drowned while trying to get to a seal before il
reached tlie edge of a floo upon which they
were. He missed his footing, fell into v seam
in the ice and was seen no more.
We encountered a gale day before yester
day which was so furious that the Alert
separated from us in it. Greely, in his report
to me, said that on August 0, 1SS3, he aban
doned Fort Conger. They traveled northerly,
and, after considerable privation and suffer
ing from the cold, reached Baird Inlet od

four aud one-third ounces meat, seven oi

shown in the number of survivors. The last
