COLUMBIA, S. C.
Tuesday >Homine:. May 7,1872.
B Tbe Situation.
It was not within the bounds of rea?
sonable hope that the aotion of the Cin?
cinnati Convention would be entirely
satisfactory to all the anti-Grant ele?
ments throughout the country. It has
not proved so, but there seems to be a
muoh more unanimous acceptance of the
platform and candidates than might
' have been expected. Tbero were in the
Convention, and doubtless equally io to
rested and honest in the movement for
reform, strong advocates of free trade,
on the one hand, and warm devotees of a
proteo ti vo tariff, on the other. It was
impossible that the extremists of either
of these opposing views of political
economy could hs entirely satisfied.
Judges Hoadley, Brinkerhoff, Mat?
thewa and other pitra free traders, are
accordingly very bitter in their denun
. dation of -the nomination of Mr. Gree?
ley, a life long protectionist, and they
threaten, in the first flash of their dis?
appointment, to bolt the ticket, call an?
other.cphf?ntidn, or endeavor to carry
out their peculiar views at Philadelphia
or at St. Louis, where it is thought the
Demooratio National Convention will
meet, if it meet st all.
While we hare these slight signs of
disaffection among the liberal Republi?
cans themselves, there are also indica?
tions that the nomination baa not boen
in all respeots just what some of the
Democrats desire. This ia not in the
least surprising, for it mattered not
what candidates the liberal Republicans
had pat forward, there wocld inevitably
be found some Democrats to whom they
would be objectionable.
The New York World pressed strongly
the claims of Charles Franois Adams, as
abont the only Republican whom the
Democrats would cheerfully and unani?
mously support, and also opposed the
nomination of Jadgo Davis. The Wash?
ington Patriot favored Judge Davis.
The Atlanta Sun bitterly upbraided the
World for its advocacy of Mr. Adams,
and other Demooratio papers urged other
names, and so on. It was, therefore, a
practical impossibility to have named
any set of candidates that would have
en i ted tho poe aliar views of all. Ac?
cordingly we find the World, the Patriot
and the Baltimore Gazette disapproving
the nominations with more or lesa expli?
citness. How far the influence of these
journals may extend, and hpw far in
their opposition they express the senti?
ments of the Demooraoy around them,
it is impossible to judge correctly. This
we do know, however, that, so far as we
have had opportunity to see, every De?
mocratic paper South of Maryland
favors the nomination, and advises, as we
have done, its earnest support by the
Demooraoy. Theil Southern Democrats,
if there be no regular Democratic candi?
dates in the field, will, we are firmly per?
suaded, vote en masse for Greeley and
Brown on the Cincinnati platform; and
even should the Demooratio party be
rash enough to make a separate nomina?
tion, a heavy vote will be given the Cin?
cinnati nominees any way.
It is true that, ten or twelve years ago,
there was no man more cordially and
generally hated at the South than Ho?
race Greeley, the abolitionist; but it is
equally true that there is no Republicen
at the North that bas s-> commended him?
self to our grateful regard within the
past few years. Horaoe Greeley has
shown that while he was a friend to the
black he was no foe to the white man of
the South. He did not assume the garb
of a fanatic philanthopist to conceal sec?
tional hate, like thousands of other Re?
publicans. Those latter we find, though
the Union, for whioh alone they pro?
fessed to be battling, has been restored;
though the slaves have been ?rood and
vested with the foll rights of American
citizenship, are just as bitter, just as
vindictive, jost ss unrelenting in their
uiuboiiual Ln?E?u ol th? S?uiu, Ss during
the fiercest! days of tu0 war. They
hated with the envenomed malice ot
jealous envy and of conscious inferiority
that knows no abatement nor remission.
They hate us for the high integrity of
oar statesmen, the culturo and courtli?
ness of our gentlemen, the purity and
refinement of our women. It was low,
sordid, base envy like this that sought
to vent its spleen nnder the false cry of
freedom and the Union. Their conduct
since tho war, in heaping wrong after
wrong, and humiliation after humilition,
upon ns, proves this beyond all question.
They even bato ns more now for/ the
dignified and manly fortitude with whioh
we show our contempt for their petty
Not so with Horaoe Greeley ond
the liberal Republicans associated with
him in the reform movement. To
reotify the wrongs of the South is the
prime motive in their breaking from the
Grant fao'ion. Tba war over, the slaveB
freed, the Union preserved, their .oppo?
sition to tho South bas ceased, and
through .them, in our judgment, wo
must look for a full restoration to our
rights in the Union and relief " from
oarpet-bag misrule, with more hope than
even from the Domocratio party, should
it be hoisted into power by the disseoaion
now in the Republican ranks.
Tho Bavclt Down.
It is now Tory generally believed-for
it is semi-officially confessed at Wash?
ington-that Grant nas concluded to
oonoede to the British Government a
virtual withdrawal of tho American
claim for indirect damages. After all
Grant's bluster ?nd the attitude of ap?
parent determination and dignity which
he had assumed in declaring his purpose
to eua tain the "case" as presented, his
knuckling now to John Bull intensifies
the humiliation ?Dd shame pf the ridicu?
lous and dishonorable position in which
he had placed himself and,the Govern?
ment of the United States. It is a vir?
tual acknowledgment that the incorpo?
ration of the claim for inferential
damages in tho American case was not
prompted by an honest conviction of
their propriety and justice, but was sug?
gested by a spirit of pettifogging chi?
canery, which sought to create capital for
Grant's re-election, at the risk of that
shame and dishonor that has oome upon
the country. If England could have
been induced, through fear of a war
with the United States, to submit quietly
to be mulotcd in the sum of hundreds of
millions of dollars, under the claim for
consequential damages, it would have
been a>great feather in Grant's cap. His
foreign polioy would then have been
considered scarcely less brilliant than
his military record, for, with their eyes
gloating upon English gold, the Ameri?
can people would not have been over?
scrupulous in determining the justice of
tho demand upon which it was paid, es?
pecially when the defendants themselves
made no serious objections. But Grant
oounted without his host. England,
though averse to war, is not more so
than the people of the United States.
She has courteously, but none the less
firmly and manfully, protested against
Grant's chicanery, and expressed her
unalterable determination not to conti?
nue the arbitration, unless the prepos?
terous claims be withdrawn.
Grant stood ont for awhile, and gave
out the impression that he wonld up?
hold the American oase as presented
at all hazards. His reputation for bull?
dog tenacity persuaded many that he
would be as good as his word, and "Ugh!
it out on this line, if it takes all sum
mer." But England was not to b(
bullied, and Grant has been obliged ti
succumb. It is very authoritatively re
ported now that Grant has proposed no
to prosecute the claim for oonsequentia
d????g??, ?? the notuiuai condition thai
England pledges herself not to presen
claims of a similar character against vin
United States, should the position o
the two Governments be reversed. Ai
England has all along deolared that th?
claims were preposterous and unreason
able, there is no doubt but that she wil
accept the condition, which has baen in
sorted merely to ease Grant's fall a little
Whether England will be satisfied
though, with the simplo understand^
that the claims are not to be prosecuted
or will demand their absolute withdrawn
from the American case, is not so cer
tain. Judging from the hopeful ant
self-satisfied tone in which the matter i
now spoken of by the English authori
ties, we feel pretty safe in asserting tba
the difficulty has been arranged, or wi!
Boon be arranged, in a mannor vor
satisfactory to England and the rovers

Address and Resolution* Adopted at
Mr. Horuoe White, from the Commit?
tee ou Phitforta,? reported resolutions
unanimously adopted by tho committee.
Tho reaolutioba are prefaoed by the fol?
lowing address: .
Tbs administration now in power has
rendered itself guilty of wanton disre?
gard of the laws of the land, and. of
usurpation of powers not granted by the
Constitution. It has acted as if the
laws had binding force only for those
who are governed* and not for thoau who
govern. It has. thus struck a blow at
tba fondamental principles of constitu?
tional government and tho liberties of
aitizons. The President of ibo United
States bas openly used the powers and
opportunities of his high office for tbe
promotion of personul ends. He has
kept notoriously oorrnpt and nu worthy
men in plaoes of powor and responsi?
bility, tu tho detriment of the public
int crests. He has used the public service
of the Government ns machinery of
partisan and personal influence, and in?
terfered with tyrannical arrogance in tbe
political affairs of States and municipali?
ties. He has rewarded with influential
aud lucrative offices men who had ac?
quired his favor by valuable presents,
thus stimulating demoralization of our
political lifo by his conspicuous example.
He has shown himself deplorably une?
qual to thc tasks imposed upon him by
the necessities of the country, and culpa
bry oareless of tho responsibilities of his
The partisans of tho Administration,
assuming to be the Republican party,
and controlling its organization, have
attempted to justify such wrongs und
palliate such abuses, to the end of main?
taining partisan ascendancy. They have
stood in tho way of necessary investiga?
tions and indispensable reforms, pre?
tending that no serious fault could bc
found with the present administration of
publio affairs, thus seeking to blind tho
eyes of the people. They havo kept
alive the passions and resentments of
the late civil war, to use them to their
own advantage. They havo resorted to
arbitrary measures in direot conflict with
the organic law, instead of appeuling to
the better instincts and latent patriotism
of the Southern people, by restoring to
them those rights, the enjoyment of
whioh is indispensable to a successful
administration of their local affairs, and
would tend to promote a patriotic and
hopeful national feeling. They have de?
graded themselves and the name of their
party, once justly entitled to the confi?
dence of the nation, by a base syco?
phancy to the dispenser of executive
powor and patronage, unworthy of re?
publican freemen. The; have sought to
stifle the voice of just oritioism, to stifle
the moral sense of the people, aud to
subjugate public opinion, by tyrannical
party discipline. They are striving to
maintain themselves ju authority for
selfish ends, by an unscrupulous use of
power whioh rightfully belongs to the
people, and should be omployed only in
the service of the country. Believing
that au organization thus led and con?
trolled eau no longer be of service to the
best interests of the republic, we have
resolved to make an independent appeal
to the sober judgment, conscience und
patriotism of tbe American people.
The following are tho resolutions in
We, the liberal Republicans of the
United States, in national convention
assembled at Cincinnati, proclaim the
following principles as essential to a just
First. We recognize the equality of ull
men before the law, and hold that it is
tho duty of the Government, in its deal?
ings with the people, to mete out equal
and exact justice to all, of whatever na?
tivity, race, color or persuasion, reli?
gions or political.
Second. We pledge ourselves to main?
tain the union of these States, emanci?
pation and enfranchisement, and to op?
pose any re-opening of the questions
settled by the thirteenth, fourteenth and
fifteenth amendments of the Constitu?
Third. We demand the immediate and
absolute removal of all disabilities im?
posed on account of the rebellion, which
was Anally subdued seven years ago, be?
lieving that universal amnesty will re?
sult iu the complete pacification of all
sections of the country.
Fourth. Local self-government, with
impartial suffruge, will guard the rights
of all citizens moro securely than any
centralized power. The publio welfare
requires the supremacy of the civil over
tho military authority, and the freedom
of person under the protection of tho
habeas corpus. We demand for tho in?
dividual the largest liberty consistent
with publio order, for the States self
government, and for the nation a return
to the methods of peace and the consti?
tutional limitation of power.
Fifth. The oivil service of the Govern?
ment has become a mere instrument of
partisan tyranny and personal ambition,
and an object of selfish greed. It is a
scandal and reproach upon our free in?
stitutions, and breeds a demoralization
dangerous to the perpetuitj of republi?
can government. We, therefore, regard
a thorough reform of the civil service as
one of the most pressing necessities of
the hour; that honesty, oapaoity and
fidelity constitute the only valid claims
to publio employment; that the offices
of the Government oease to be a matter
of arbitrary favoritism and patronage,
and that publio stations become again
posts of honor. To this end, it is impe
ritatively required that no President
shall be a candidato for ra-eleotion.
Sixth. We demand a system of Federal
taxation whioh shall not unnecessarily
interfere with the industry of the people,
and whioh shall provide means neces?
sary to pay the expenses of the Govern?
ment, economically administered, pen?
sions, the interest on the publio debt,
and a moderate reduction, annually, of
the principal thereof, and recognizing
that there are in our midst.honest but
irreoonoible differences of opinion with
regard to the respective systems of pro?
tection and free trade, we remit discus?
sion of the subject to tbe people in their
Congressional Districts, and to the deci- <
sion of Congress thereon, wholly free of
executive interforenoe or dictation.
Seventh. The pnblio credit must be i
sacredly maintained, and we denounce i
repudiation in every form and guise.
Eighth. A speedy return to specie pay?
ments is demanded alike by the highest
considerations of commercial morality
?nd honest government.
Ninth. We remember with gratitude
tho heroism and sacrifices of the soldiers
and sailors of tho republic, and no act
of ours shall over detract from their
justly earned fame or the full reward of
Tenth. We are opposed to all further
grants of lands to railroads or other cor?
porations. The public domain should
be held sacred to actual settlors.
Eleventh. We hold that it is the duty
of the Qovernment in its intercourse
with foreign nations to cultivate the
friendship of peace by treating with all
on fair and equal terms, regarding it
alike dishonorable either to demand
what is not right or to submit to what is
Twelfth. For the promotion and BUO
cess of thane vital principien, and the
support of the candidates nominated by
thia Convention, wo invito and cordially
welcome the co-operation of all patriotic
citizens, without regard to previous poli?
Wo clip the following sketch of the
lifo of Horace Greeley from tho IV.cb
Horace Greeley was born in Amherst,
New Hampshire, on the 3d of February,
1811. In his youth he was remarkable
for lu's fondness for books, and it is said
that by the tenth year of his ugo ho had
read every book within seven miles of
bi.'? father's house; which is within the
range of credibility, as books wero then
very scarce. He is not spoken of as
either tho "good little boy," or "the
boy that never told a lie;" but ho was
irrepressibly mirions about all sorts of
things, und made his early essays in till?
ing cabbages, potatoes and corn, under
his father's pupilage.
At the age of fifteen, he entered the
printing office of the East Pontt ney (Vt.)
Northern Spectator, to learn the printing
business. In that establishment he
showed his aptitude and industry by
soon becoming tho best printer in the
office, and giving sometimes valuable
assistance in editing the paper. The
Spectator died in 1830, and tho next year
the then youthful philosopher made his
appearance in New York city to Beek
employment, with $10 in his pocket
not a very small capital for those day?.
He had before he left Vermont displayed
a talent for statistics and a knowledge of
parties and party men that astonished
the natives. In New York, he worked
as a journeyman printer in several of?
fices lintil he embarked in business for
himself, in partnership with Mr. Fran?
cis Story, who, Boon dying, the firm of
Greeley Sc Co. was continued with new
par tn ors, and tho New Yorker, a weekly
political and literary paper, with Mr.
Greeley as editor, was commenced. It
was a remarkably well arranged paper,
and gave Mr. Greeley his first distinc?
tion for accurate and wull-digofited poli?
For soma timo he was actively em?
ployed, not only in editing the New
Yorker, but in contributing for several
Whig papers; and in 18-11, April 10, he
commenced the Daily Tribune, which has
grown steadily until now it has reached
the condition of the first newspaper of
the country, familiar to people in all
parts of the Union. At the time of the
commencement of the Tribune, ho bad
established his reputation as a practiced
and forcible newspaper writer and an
unrivalled collator of political facts and
lu 1848 ho was elected to fill a vacancy
in a seat in Congress from the city of
New York, which expired in 1849, March
4. W h i lo in Congress he displayed great
zeal in his assaults upon the abuses of
tho mileage system. He has been au
author of books-publishing, after a trip
across the At lantic, "Glances at Europe;"
also, a "History of Slavery," a "History
of tho Late War," and u book on politi?
cal economy. He has been a lecturer on
many topics, and a zealous adv?calo of
manufactures and the interests of labor?
Of course Mr. Greeley ?B known the
world over for his opposition to slavery
and his support of tho doctrine of pro?
tection to home industry. His course
since the war has very much commended
him to the Southern people. At the
moment of the termination of the war
of blood be proposed an end of the war
of sectional prejudice and hate by gene?
ral amnesty. As a proof of his liberality
he became one o? ibo sureties uf Mr.
Davis, President of the late Confedera?
cy, and he has consistently urged upon
the Government the policy of olemenoy
and general amnesty.
No man has poured out suoh bitter and
soathing invectives upon the carpet-bag?
gers who have plundered the South as
Mr. Greeley has. Every Southern paper
has spread widely his denunciations of
these unworthy people.
A saddening rumor comes from Wash?
ington by way of the Cincinnati Com?
mercial, whos9 correspondent affirms
that Secretary Boutwell and the Presi?
dent have quarreled, and that the Secre?
tary will soon quit the Cabinet and take
an no ti ve. part in the opposition to Grant.
Another correspondent discussos the
chances of Grant's withdrawal, and
thinks that Colfax would be nominated
if Grant were not, and that Blaine oonld
not prevent it, however muoh he might
like to. The President's withdrawal,
however, is not looked for with lively
