How Softly on the Bruised Heart.
How softly on the bruised heart
A word of kindness falls.
And to the dry and parched soul
The moistening tear-drop calls;
Oh, if they knew who walked the earth
'Mid sorrow, grief and pain,
The power a word of kindnosj hath,
'Twcra paradise agr.in.
The weakest and the poorest may
The simple pittance give,
And bid delight to withered hearts,
Return again and lire ;
Oh, what is life if love be lost ?
If man's unkind to man,
Oh, what the h'javen that waits beyond,
This brief nfcd mortal span r
As stars upon the tranquil sea
In mimio glory thine,
So words of kindness in the heart
reflect the source divine ;
Oh. then be kind whoe'er thcu art,
That breathest mortal breath,
And it shall brighten all thy life,
Aud sweeten even death.

clares its faith, appeals to its history, and
announces its position upon the questions
before the coun'ry
During eleven years of supremacy it
has accepted with grand courage the sol
emn duties of the times. It suppressed
a gigantic rebellion, emancipated four
millions of slaves, decreed the equal citi
zenship tf all, and established universal
suffrage. Exhibiting unparalleled mag
nanimity, it ciiiniiihlly punished no man
for pulitic.il cdenes. and warmly wtl
eomed all who proved loyal by obeying
the laws aud dealing justly with their
neighbors. It has steadily decreated
with firm hand the resultant disoiders of
a great war, aud initiated a wise and hn 4
mane policy towards the India-is. The
l'acifiu Railroad, and similar vast enter
prises, have been generally aided and
t freely given to actual settlers ; imiuigra

Z':us' lights secured from European
powers. A uniform national currency
has been provided, repudiation frowned
down, the national credit sustained uuder
most extraordinary burdens, and new
bonds negotiated at lower rates. The
revenues have been carefully collected
and honestly applied ; despite annual
largo reductions of the rates of taxation,
the public ilebt has beeu reduced during
(Jeneral Grant's Presidency at the rate
of a hundred millions a year ; great fioati

the duty of our Government to guard
with jealous care the rights of adopted

10. Among the questions which press
for attention is that which- concerns tha
relations between capital and labor, and
the Republican party recognize the duty
of so ehaping legislation as to seenre full
protection and the amplest field for capi

of mutual profits of these two great ser

of its obligations to the loyal women of
America for their noble devotion to the
cause of freedom. Their admission to'

satisfaction, and the honest demands of

Congress in extending amnesty to those
lately in rebellion, and rejoice in the
growth of peace and fraternal feeling
throughout the land.
15 The Republican paity proposes to'
respect the rights reserved by '.he peoplo
to themselves as carefully as the powers
delegated by thcu lo the Btate and to""
the Federal Government. It disapproves
of the resort to unconstitutional laws for
the purpose of removing evils, by inter

the people to either the State orNationa!
