For President of the United Slates.
HORACE! OUEELKT, of Ntvr York.
B. GRATZ BKOWN, of Missouri.
Tbe World on Mr. Greeley.
It is diffloult to understand tbe real
position of tho New York TForW. Its
course has been marked by rt series of
inconsistencies and self-contradictions
for the past four or five months. It is
an able journal, beyond all question
perhaps the ablest edited of any political
paper in the United States. We have
always admired it and attached great im?
portance to its well-digested views. But
our admiration is being fast provoked
out of us by ita present absurd attitude.
At tho inception of the Liberal move?
ment, there was no more earnest advo?
cate of its principles than the World,
and we doubt if there was any moro
powerful instrumentality to its primitive
success. The World was regarded as
thephief standard-bearer of the Demo?
cracy, and the bold leaders of Liberalism
on the Republican side were encouraged
to believe that what it so promptly aud
heartily endorsed would bo supported
by the party which at that time it cer?
tainly represented. Tho World con?
tinued to encourage and to hold out
promises, indirectly, it is true, but none
the less binding on that account, that
it would sustain the movement up to tho
very moment of the Cincinnati nomi?
nation. No sooner were Greeley and
Brown nominated, than this paper, to
tbe astonishment of all its readers, faced
about, and instead of pushing forward
the good work which it had so com?
mendably helped to inaugurate, teemed
day by day with tho most bitter and
virulent attack? upon Mr, Greeley. It
did not desist fr >m this injurious and
inconsistent course even after it acknow?
ledged that the nomination of Mr. Gree?
ley at Baltimore was a foregone conclu?
sion, thus showing that the motives of
its action was not simply to defeat Mr.
Greeley's endorsement by the Demo?
cracy, bot that it waa impeded either by
envy, or else that it is acting a treacher?
ous part in the interests of Grant But
one might have forgiven all this, attri?
buting the World's vagaries to a tempo?
rary aberration of its usually sound
judgment, had the paper abided in good
faith the action of the Baltimore Con?
vention, which it waB pledged to do be?
fore that body convened, and whioh it
bas deliberately expressed its purpose to
Instead, however, of supporting man?
fully the Baltimore nomination, we fiud
the World indulging in lengthy diatribes
against the Tribune, and endeavoring,
in a sort of covert, sneaking way, to
array the Liberal Republicans aud the
Democrats against one another, by dwell?
ing upon tho mighty obligations which
the latter have oonferred upon Mr. Gree?
ley. The World manifests very plainly
that the loaves.and fishes of office, or, at
any rate, simple party aggrandizement,
is the chief consideration it has in view.
The World appears, for instance,, far
more desirous that the Democracy should
"put a hook through Mr. Greeley's
nose," or that the party should have the
lion's share of the Cabinet appoint?
ments, than of the election of the Libe?
ral ticket and the salvation of the coun?
Wk The Herald, thongh it favors Grant
> ''-' personally, is, by its unbiased criticism
of the faults of his administration, and
its candid acknowledgment of the patri?
otic spirit which underlies the Liberal
movement, and of the honesty and
worth of Mr. Greeley, a far better Libe?
ral paper than the World has yet shown
itself to be. The very first idea of the
Liberal movement is, that in relation to
the two existing political parties, the
Democratic and the Republican, it shall
be non-partisan. It cannot be oalled
either a D?mocratie or a Repnblioan
party, as those parties now exist. It is
to occupy a middle position, forming a
new party; whioh, will embrace thc
healthful pr in oipl es of both the old par?
ties, harmonized and cemented together
with th? new and nobie principio of re
conciliation between the sections of the
Union, it expunges from Democracy
all the dead issues whioh have sprung
from slavery and nltra views on the sub?
ject of States rights. It lops off from
Radicalism its military, despotic and
centralizing tendencies. It is a protest,
indeed, against party tyranny and part?
corruption on all sides, brought about
by the people, supported by the people,
and intended for their relief.
They who, like the World, would ham?
per Mr. Greeley's success by forcing in
mero partisan considerations, either do
not ap p reo i at o the true nature of the
Liberal movement, or else are wittingly
endeavoring to injure and belittle it.
Mr. Greeley, if eleoted, will go into
office hampered by obligations to no po?
litical patty, and will make bis appoint?
ments solely with the view of beat eon
nerving tho pnblio interests. Democrat
or Republican should be, and we believe
will bo, to bim, a question of no oonsi
sideration in filling the public offices.
Nor will he be expected, in tho distribu?
tion of tho publio patrouage, to confine
himself to thoso who may have support?
ed his oleotion. That false doctrine, in?
augurated by Andrew Jucksou, that "to
the victors belong the spoils," has been
moro potent for evil iu corruptiug the
civil service than anything else, and ull
good men will hail with delight the day
when it shall bo repudiated and over?
turned. We Bay to tho World, that it is
on the wrong page again, when it speaks
of Mr. Greeley being constrained to do
this or that for the Democratic party.
He is a reform candidate, and his only
dut}* as President will be to his country.
If bo performs that faithfully aud well,
ns we feel assured that he will do, uine
teuths of those who elect bim will be
satisfied, and will not complain, even
though his Gabinot be made up.more of
Republicans than Democrats.

The eyes of tho country are now
turued upon North Carolina, where the
first State election sinco the Presidential
nominations will take place, on the 1st of
August. The Radicals have placed the
State among tho Hst of those certain for
Qrant, and their defeat, they well know,
would bo tba death-knell of Grantism.
If the olection is a fair ono, and there is
no great fraud, bribery or military in?
terference by the Government, we feel
very sure that our sister State will do her
duty, and roll np a handsome majority
of from ten to fifteen thousand votes in
favor of the Liberal candidates. But
the powers that bo at Washington aro
putting forth extraordinary exertion.1',
and it seems are scrupling at no corrupt
moans to effect their purposes. It is
openly announced by Congressman Beck,
of Kentucky, that ho finds from a per?
sonal examination of the books at Wash?
ington, that $223,000 has beeu sent iuto
North Carolina during the past year,
ostensibly to defray judicial expenses.
But, as Mr. Book remarks, when it is
known that $5,000 per annum is the or?
dinary expenditure for such purposes, it
is clear that this enormous amount of
$223,000-waB not intended far any legiti?
mate use. Ia addition to this, it is cur?
rently reported in the Northern prest
that the Grant Central Executive Com?
mittee has sent down a fund of $100,00C
to aid ia the campaign. There is t
pretty heavy majority of whites ia Nortfc
Carolina; but in the Westera portion ol

The Grant papers arc now telling us
what a very bad mau Mr. Greeley is
how unsafe und unreliable. If thut is
so, remarks tho Cincinnati Enquirer,
they ure particeps criminis. They have
been politically acting with Mr. Greeley
for tho last twenty years, and never
found the least fault with him. On the
contrary, they extolled bim in high
terms. Now, after they huvu led us into
believing him to bo both a good and

Uii that he is jest thu reverse, and that
they have always known it. Mow, ac?
cording to their own .showing, what a
set of scamps they must bo. Tte mun
who will conceal another's errors and
faults for twenty years, when it is neces?

says: "Also we bear of more Greeley
Republicans in this State than would be
imagined by the readers of the Times."
And further: "From New Hampshire,
also, we hear news of Republican disaf?
fection and Republican apathy. " Coming
from a Graut organ, this is decidedly
cold aomfort for its own sido of the
house, but the Nation, it is to b j pre?

an article of trade with the Grant peo?

made, the less will be their effect.

ferry boat, which plies between the
bridge and tbe other Bide of the river,
and had made several trips, when he
slipped off his clothing, and said he
would take a bath. He jumped into the
water, in the presence of several by?

and did not interest themselves particu?

in the water, he rose twice and then dis?
appeared. His body was recovered by

MIKE O'Coxxou's SPEECH -The New
York papers speak highly of the speech
of the Hon. M. P. O'Counor. The
Mr. O'Counor, of Charleston, made a
flaming speech, full of real Irish elo?
quence, in favor of the Cincinnati plat?
form and nominees. Ho presented the
Southeru viow of the question OD all
sides so glowingly that the Convention
yelled again. The desperate condition
of the South, her sufferings nuder the
present Administration, her despair of
any hope or aid, save through the pre?
sent coalition-this was the theme elabo?
rated by Mr. O'Connor. His speech was
a spicy preparation for the vote on the
The Tribune says:
Mr. O'Connor, having straightened
oat every point on which opposition had
arisen, closed with a most pathetic ap?
peal to the Couvention not to stop at
mere words, but to lay aside unimportant
differences of opinion and come to the
rescue of the down-trodden and Afflicted
South. Strong and earnest as Senator
Bayard was, had there been any consider?
able division in tho Convention, it would
hive disappeared after this remarkably
eloquent and effective reply.
The Herald says:
A South Carolina Irishman, by the
name of O'Connor, was nt once recog?
nized by Doolittle, and he came forward
und took the stand for about twenty mi?
nutes, and made a speech such us few
members of tho Cincinnati Convention
would have had thu pluck to do. He
said, relative to the blacks io the State
from which he came, that nobody was
anxious to take their hard-earned and
hard-wou ballot from them; and nt
these sentences, to tho surprise of the
whole Couvention, the galleries rose up
and gave one of the loudest yells yet
raised iu the Presidential nomination.

GREENVILLE, C. H., S. G.,
MONDAY EVENING, July 15, 1872.
AD assemblage of tbe GraDt wing of
the Radical party convened in the Court
Houso, to-night, to listen to a speech
from A. S. Wallace, said to be a member
of Congress from this District. (After
some reflection, we remember that thc
Uuited States House of Representatives
placed him in tho seat to which I. G.
McKissiok was elected by the people.)
Ho stated that he was prospecting or
nosing around to see tho chances for re?
election. Ho "greased tho fut sow," by
sacrilegiously comparing Grant to tho
immortal Washington, us tho first in
war, first in peace, etc.; declared Grunt
thu friend of all the iiutious and peo?
ples of the earth iu their down-trodden
condition, (except, perhaps, the negroes
of Uayti and SUD Domingo and the pa?
triots of Cuba. It Mr. Wallace, M. C.,
would find bis way into tho Albany Peni?
tentiary, be would find some suffering
mortals, unfortunately covered with u
white skin, upon whom bc and his mas?
ter Grunt might opeu their bowels of
compassion. Wallace glorified Grant
for paying so ranch of the national
debt and reducing all the taxes and
tariffs, and furnishing tho people free
Ina und coffee mid sugar. (Wv viii take
sugar in ours,) but hope Wallace will ex?
plain how it is that we, and other
niggers, have to pay live ceuls more por
pound for coffee now than before the
tariff \* rn taken off. After a sickening
laudation o? his friend, Jus. L. Orr, his
rt o lomon tad o was brought to a close.
Mr. James M. Allen, being called for,
appeared, un 1, after tho usual eulogy on
Grant, went for thu State Government;
coufessed that rascality had been ram?
pant; placed the State debt at exactly
$15,000,000-the larger portion of which
was created before tho war, to keep the
niggers iu slavery, and the lesser portion
after the war, to keep them out ol'
slavery; uud thou very conveniently
undertook to throw the whole burdeu of
the State debt on the shoulders of the
Democratic party of tho Stute, and then
boldly announced tho intention of re?
pudiating the whole debt.
Thus you sec, Mr. Editor, the key
note sounded to take our "colored
friends." As ire hold no bonds, let
those who have foudled the tiger now
feel its claws. When such balderdash is
put forth us argument, it is proof con?
clusive of a sinking cause. A few more
such meetings will send our "colored
friends" liead-loug into thc arms of

Tsaug is the name of a Chinese waiter
in a coneert hall in the Champs Elysees
of Paris, whose bizarre story serves to
interest the patrons of the place. He
dresses after the European fashion, with
the familiar jacket and apron of the pro?
fessional waiter, and wears his cue rolled
around his head. He speaks French
with sufficient fluency to be understood.
This is the little story that be has to tell:
He was formerly in the service of the
Empress of China, who had confided to
bim the charge of a certain fan, repre?
senting the imperial dragon, worked in
green upon a yellow field. This fan was
a sacred affair, and desoended from the
late Emperor, and the Empress intended
to deliver it to ber son upon the day of
his marriage. Unhappily, Tsang, one
day, broke the fun, and was condemned,
in consequence, to decapitation. Being
a person of ingeuuity, however, Tsaug
managed to extricate himself from his
dilemma by seizing the throat of his in?
tended executioner, before that func?
tionary had drawn bis sword, and thus
strangled bim. As there was no witness
to this affair, he dressed himself in the
extinct executioner's attire, escaped
without suspicion, and embarked upon a
French steamer which was abont leaving
port. And thus is it that, after having
worked for two years with a tea mer?
chant of Marseilles, Tsaug may now be
heard ervine out every evening in tbe
