The gods, in presenting their gift
to Epimetheus, could have scarcely re
ceived more pleasure from the sight of
their present than the honest people
of the United State's this day do, in
the conviction that they, and not poli
cians, are represented in the sterling
cx ponents each moment arriving in this
city. For the first time in many years
the anomaly is presented of unselfish
ness in politics. This exeoptional case
of political heroism shows, I appre
bend, that patriotism has not died out
in the South, but that the same spirit
which has hitherto animated it, still
exists, and manifests its fruition in
.the forgetting of prejudices, and a
generous sacritiee of party predilec

with all parts of the Union. The
press of the count.y was reprenented
by over 180 reporters, who were com
fortably accomodated on; the rear of
the stage. Your corre,obdent,hota'
ever, was fortunate in securing a seat
in one of the commodious and elegant
opera box en, which besides being much
cooler, was especially desirable for
seeing and auditory purposes. The
large hous3 was crowded to suffoca'

Greeley fans were kept in constant
motion. Within the dais, I notice

Geo. 13aine, Rev. llenry Slicer, and
other distinguishcd gcntlemen.
While the preliminaries were beibg
arranged, a tall, stately woman walked
immediately in frent of the stage and
presented her credentials to one of the
committee. It was whispered among
the crowd that she was Mrs. Cady Stan.

continued till she took her position in
the rear among the reporters.

At the last National Conv tion on
4th July, 1868, lie predicted that the
election of Gen. Grant would result
in the gradual usurpation of all the
functions of the governanent by the
Exeoutive and by Congress, to be en
forced by the bayonets of a military
despotism. That the vast niajority of
the people ~of the United States has
witnessed with grief and sorrow the
correctness of that prediction, and
wit,h fear and - apprehension looked
forward to the great 4langer wh.ich
threatens if the present head of the
party ia re-elected, and the policy of
the patrty is continued.
Tihat, the thinking men of both par
ties have become alive to the fact that
a military despotism is overriding the
.civil authorities in many 8tates of
the Union, and that by a depraved
innjority in Congroas, the rights of
these States are infring'e4 and tram
pled upon, and t~Ca' .rism and

the American people. Gen. Grant's
war record was good, and he had been
generously rewarded. In accepting
the highest office from the people, his
intentions may have been good, but
he has most signally failud in the dis.
charge of the high trust iinposed upon
him. Ilo is at this moment the very
personification of the misrule which is
oppressing us, and his re-election is
fraught with the most deplorable con.
sequences dangerous to the liberties
of the people.

GENTI.EIEN OF TI;E CONVENTION
I thank you for this great honor,
words can hardly toll how mucb, but
you will allow me to pass at once
from what is personal to speak of the
great -occ. eion the duty and the pur
pose which bring us here. Two years
-bearly five years-after the bloody
period of the civil 'war had closed,
the Liberal Republicans of Missouri,
fanpplause] feeling keenly all the evil
of the prosoription, the test oath, the
hates and the strifes, and the passions
of the war which had been left- upon
thom long-afteri the war itself had
ceased, an1 feeling keenly the ex4ou
tive and federal power in their loyal
elections, determined to organize a
movement to restore equal rights to
all our citizens, [applause,] white as
well as black ; [applause,] to restore
local self-government, and to arrest
the further centrali2ation" of federal
power. [Applause]. They then said
this thing has gone far enough, if not
already too far. The timo has come
when honest and patriotic Republicans
must Say "halt!", and must .reassert
the vital doctrine of Fepubl,ican
government that, under the Constitu
tion, the powers of the Yederal Gov
ernment are defined and limited, [ap
plause, and ories of "Good !"
"Good!"] and that the people of the
States have the right to govern them
selves in their own 'donientie affairs,
upon the basis of the equality of all
the States before the higher law
before the Constitution-and the
equality of all. men bofore the law
[applause ;] loyalty, amnesty, suffrage
and peace ; taking no step backwatd
taking no right apd franchise which
had been secured to the blanks. Pledg
ing themselves to support them all
inetheir vigor they at the samotime
4emanded in the name of peace
in the name liberty in tile name
of R1o pl.lioan Governmont itself,
and gedom and equal a11tt
should be restored to th'e white peo
pl, [groat applause.] They organiz.
od nearly forty thousand strong and
called upon B. Gratt Brown [ap
plause,] to lead the movement ; they
placed h im in nomination for Gover
ndr; then what followed ? oighty thou
sand Democrats and Republicans,
(cheers) looking upon the success of
that movement as above any party
triumphs, (cheers,) resolved to sus
tain it with their whole strength.
Jove ^f country, love of Republican
liberty, love of the equal rights of ill
men, inspired that union and taught
men to a't rtogether who had been
politically opposed to each other all
their lives upon other questions and
in other times, and without violating
i'onor, logic, conscience or cnsistency
on either side. ' This patriotic union
was based upon highi- grounds:'than
ordinarilj control political nation.
[Great applause ] Even those who
had fought against each other in bat
tie, clasped hands -over the bloody
chasm, [renewed applause,] and side
by side, like brother,, with hearts
beating in unison-boating strong
with tho came high purpose-they
helped to bear its flag to a glorious
victory. That, gentlemen, is libe.
ral Republicanism, [enthuiasm,] and
that is Democratic Republicanism.
[Great enthusiasm.] The victory
which came from that union was the
end Of proscription and test oaths, of
pain and sttife, and of all disloyalty
in a' word, the real end of the civil
war caine swith that victory, and did
not eome until then in Missouri.
[Intense applause.] It redeemed
that State ; it gave the right of free
men to 70,000 men wh6 had been bound
aind fettered. Misouri 5i now a free
State in this Union, with all her
rights, dignity* and equality under
the Constitution, and not onie mur..
mur of disloyalty is anywhere heard.
By that union for freedom, federal die.
tation in Missouri, in her local elec
tions, was overthrown, and by th at
union, strife and hate have given place
to peace and to good will by that union
liberty, with equal rights, have given
to the State an unbounded prosperity
and to its people a ioy unspeakable.
So great was the joy and complete
their success that the Liberal Repube
lieans of that Stato were not without
making an e'fect to extend the same
union of Liberal and Democratic Ie,
publicans, and with it the same bless
ings of liberty, peace and fraternity
to all the other States. [Round of
applause.] Accordingly in State
Conventions on the 24th of Marel,
last, they resolved to invite the Libe
ral Republicans in all the States to
meet them in National Convention in
Cinoinnati on the 1st day of May.
The invitation was accepted ; tliere
was indeed a great response ; they
came by thousands in such vast num
bers that a delegation Convention
of the representativos of all the States
was formed, both from principle and
necessity, to give form to its proceed
iiqs. Many of the ablest men in the
country', latoly leaders in the Repub
lican party, were there and took part
in its 'deliberations ; they were as
sured that a largo number of Liberal
Republicans, in every State, and from
all portions of the country, stood be.
hind ready to sustain thom, ar.d they
were morally certain that if the niil..
lions at home we this day represenf
would only conic to their support, the
number of Liberal Republicans would,
reach half million or more. (Great
cheers.) That Convention presented
candidates to the country for Presi
dent, Horace a Greeley, (Long and
continued cheering,] and. for Vice.
President, B. Gratz Brown.. |More
enthusiasm,j and that Convention for
the promoting and success of the prin
ciples declared on that platform,.
there enunciated, and the support of
the candidates nominated ,by that
Convention, hav.e cordially welcomed
the co-operatio. of all patrictie citi
zens Without regard to previous po
litica: opinions-theso principles werd
clearly and concisely stated in that
platform itself, and rested on the let
4- -n-oeoptane of Ho race Greeley,
[more cheering,] and they are so well
known to you all, I will not reir.te.
them. For weeks that platform 'and
these candidates have been before the
country. Meanwhile the Convention
called to nominate General Grant,
[hisses], and to endorse and continue
the principles, practices, and policy
of his administration, has done its
work. [hisses.] As between the
Liberal Republicans and the follow..
ers of the Grant administration, the
issue is clearly up. It is Grant or
Greeley. [Immense enthusiasm, and
cries of "Creeley."] While these
events were transpiring, the Demo
cratic Republicans, whom we repre
sent, held their conventions in all the
States. The Liberal movement-the
example of Missouri-the. Cincinnati
Convention, its platform, its candi
dates, with their letteis of acceptance,
were before these Conventions, which
were very largely attended by their
ablest men, and the paramount ques
tions before these Conventions were,
shall we accept this invitation to co
operate with the Liberal Republicans?
Shall we adopt the platform ?
[Loud cries of yes, yes, and some
cries of never.] Shall wo nominat'
the same candidates? [Yes, yes.1
And shall we elect them ? ]Yes,
yes ; loud cheering.] Or shall we
co-operato and non;.inate other candi.
dates [no, no; Greeley, Greeley,] and
strive to elect them over both the
other tickets which are already in
the field. Gentlemen, these are the
questions which you are to decide,
and, here. That you will decide
thems wisely I cannot doubt, nor cnn
any one doubt, who looks over this
boa~ly of men, who, representing, as
they do, three millions of citizens,
and who feels as every one here must
feel, the high and patriotic purpose
which inspires you gentlemen. W hat
means this great movement which we
everywhere sec ? What means this
p reposed union of threeo~millions of
Demnora tie Republicans with a mil
lion, may be, of Liberal Republi
cans ? What means this union upon
a common platform, and this- pro.
