For President of the United States.
HORACE GHEELEY. of New York.
li. ?KATZ BROWN, or Mlnourl.
The Political Outlook.
The Presidential campaign may now
bo considered as fairly opened, and the
opposing parties, BO far as prominent
and influential men are concerned, are
pretty well made up. So far, everything
has worked well for the Liberal party,
and their prospects grow brighter and
moro encouraging every day. The Demo?
cratic press and the leading men of tho
party have accepted the aotion of tho
Baltimore Convention with a unanimity
and a hearty cordiality that exceeds the
anticipations of even the most sanguine.
There is no doubt now about the Demo?
cracy. Greeley and Brown will receive
fally as strong a Democratic vote BB
oonld Hancock, Church, or any party
candidato who oonld have been named.
They will probably reoeive a much
stronger vote than any straight ticket of
tho party, for there is far greater proba?
bility of their being elected. For them,
every Democrat will feel that his single
vote moy count, and he will take the
trouble to go to the polls and cast it;
whereas, if the campaign of 1868 were
repeated, as wonld be virtually the case
with a Democratic tioket in the field,
thousands of conservative men wo old
take no interest in the canvass, and
wonld not even vote, from sheer de?
spondency. In Pennsylvania, where the
Democracy has been considered the most
uncompromising, and were slowest in
expressing their willingness to support
the Liberal Bapnblioan nominations,
there is nota single Democratic paper in
the State which is not earnestly advocat?
ing the cause of Greeley and Brown,
Bin oe the Baltimore Convention declared
such to be the best policy for the party
and the country. We have this npon the
au th o? i ty of the Press, a Grant organ,
edited by Forney, who expresses his un?
bounded astonishment at the unexpected
The accounts of the accessions to the
Liberal movement from the Badical
ranks are also moat gratifying and hope?
ful. Assertions are made by reliable
Republicans of great political experi?
ence and the best advantages for ob?
servation, made, too, with the greatest
confidence and without qualification,
that Illinois, Minnesota, Kansas, and
some say even Iowa, all of which have
been hitherto regarded as absolutely
certain for Grant, will give their electora
vote to Greeley and Brown. In Massa
ohusotts, the Liberal tioket has disco
vered wonderful Republican strength
despite the popularity of Wilson. In
deed, in every seotion of the North
there is found a strong feeling amone
the moderate Republicans to snstaii
Mr. Greeley, and we have every reasoi
to hope that this feeling will continue ti
grow every day of the canvass. Sinei
the great lights, the brains, the oharao
ter and the representatives of the tm?
principles of Republicanism-Greeley
Sumner, Trumbull, Sohurz, Tipton
Gratz Brown, and others of their kind
have broken away from the Graut fao
tion, there is nothing to support tin
latter except the power of a great orga
The Grautites represent the ultr
Northern party, the party of seotiona
hate and jealousy, and which prefer
rather to koop the ir'on th forced into th
Union by the mailed hand of militar
power, than that she nhould bo restore
willingly and cheerfully, with her fu
independence and equality. They n
longer represent the Union Rep?blica
pvty, but only the extremists of thr
organization. The Liberals are tL
party of genuine re union and rooono
liation, and to them will turn all the me
of the North whe fought in the late we
honestly to preserve the Union, and nc
from hatred of the South-men of OOH
prehensive and patriotio views, wh
wish to eeo not only a part but every se
tion of the Union peaceful, prospero!
and contented, in the enjoyment <
good, honest and economical goven
ment. We believe their ideas will pr
vail, for they ought to prevail. Eve;
motive of intelligent self-interest at
patriotism leads the people, both Norl
and Sooth, to seek the reestablishme
of fraternal feelings among the States
the Union. This is the only ration
bond of onion among freemen. Tl
Sooth by its prompt, yea, eager suppo
of Horace Greeley and the Liberal R
pnblioan platform, manifests, beyond i
question, that its paramount wish is
seonre for itself an honorable and se
respecting position in the Union, to fe
give and forget the war, to shake han
cordially with the North, and to uni
sincerely in a common effort to perfc
and perpetuate our great Republio. T
proffer first oame from the Nortb,
through tho Liberal Republicans at Cin?
cinnati, and we believe that its unani?
mous and enthusiastic acceptance here
will have again a reactionary effeot npon
the good people of the North, and that
by the time the day of election comes,
Liberal Republicanism will have swept
the country from North to South aud
Eabt to West.
How to Get Immigrants.
Mr. Boutwell, Grant's Secretary of the
Treasury, leaving his official duties in
Washington to attend to themselves, is
down in North Carolina, stumping for
his chioftain, Grant. He made an elab??
rete speech nt Greensboro, some days
ago, in the course of which he offered a
novel suggestion on the subject of immi?
gration. The way to secure immigrants
in the South, says Mr. Secretary Bout
well, is for the States to support tho
Republican ticket. Some fools might
possibly be induced to try Mr. Bout
well's odd plan, if they had no expe?
rience in thc matter; but, unfortunately,
the good people of North Carolina have
already tested the beneficent effeots of a
Republican government, without any
very satisfactory results, Moreover, if
they think Republicanism has not re?
ceived a fair test in North Carolina, they
havo the living example of our noble
Palmetto State, which has been over?
whelmingly Republican for four years.
Immigrants have not flocked here to any
great extent, nor has the Republican
government manifested the least desire
that they should. A rapid influx of in?
telligent immigrants is about the last
thing under the sun that they would
care to see. No, no, Mr. Boutwell; you
cannot make even the credulous darkies
believe that publio plundering, piling up
publio debts, heavy taxation and whole?
sale corruption, which has characterized
the Republicanism of every State in the
South, will induce immigration to any
thrilling to that most sensitive chord in
our people, the pocket nerve, must be
the constant statements which the Grant
party workers so industriously spread
through the press about the reduotion of
the debt. But when we look into tho
stupid facts and dogged figures of the
oase, we can find little to encourage the
hope that Mr. Grant's Mr. Boutwell will
descend to posterity surrounded by a
brilliant halo of financiering. The end
of the fisoal year shows $200,000,000
changed from B?X to five per oent., but it
also shows the completo failure of the
four per oent. bonds, promised to Con?
gress, and that in exchanging the six per
oents the expenses of the negotiation
ate up all the savings we shall make for
some time to come. This is not the en?
tertainment to which the people were in- j
vited. There is also an unexpected fall?
ing off in the Treasury bullion. Only
856,000,000 of the gold now in the Trea?
sury belongs to the Government, and as j
it is, no moro can be spared before the
1st of Hep tomber. The reported Go?
vernment gold was $109,000,000 in May,
891,000,000 in Juno, and $88,000,000 in
July, less the gold certificates. The fall?
ing off has been steady andbegius to at?
GEORGE CRUIKSHANK.-A correspond?
ent of one of the daily papers, writing
from London, gossips pleasantly about
George Cruikshank. We confess that
we thought he was dead. He seems even
now, as we read about him, a relic of the
past that has hardly any business with
this modern world. All those who
appear to us his contemporaries have
departed-Dickens, Thackeray, Murk
Lemon and othors among the writers,
Orowqnil, (Forrester,) Doyle, Leech,
among the artists. And evon an older
generation than these has Georgo Cruik?
shank seen. He illustrated the first
books of Diokens, and still, in spite of
many editions and signal ability in tho
illustrations, the favorite works of the
great novelist are those in which the
queer figures of Cruikshank, odd, gro?
tesque and such as only he oould draw,
are profusely scattered over the pages.

A SPKKOH BY JUDGE WRIGHT.-Asso?
ciate Justice J, J. Wright, the colored
member of the South Carolina Supreme
Court, made a two-hour speech at the
Colored Men's Convention, held in Bal
I timore last Wednesday. He advised his
hearers to demand a fuller recognition of
their civil rights and a larger share of
offices, advocated a constitutional amend?
ment to make a foreigner competent to
beoome President of the United States,
and pitohed into the Oinoinnati platform
extensively, especially the fourth article
providing for local self-government,
which he said was a revival of the doc?
trines of secession.

TheStato Convention will be held at

Sambo Sbarpshius went home from tho
lost Legislature to his cotton patch on
horseback-tho horse was bought with
money received for voting for somebody's
railroad bill-und evory darkey drops his
hoe and says he is a candidate for the
Legislature. Tho County Conventions,
however, straighten out this little diffi?
culty of a surplus of material, and the
fight will be made in tho Statu Conven?
tion. Tho present incumbent of tho
Gubernatorial chair (Scott) is what
might bo termed pretty well played out,
except in purse. This he will doubtless
use to got the nomination for Governor,
that be may bo the more sure nf beiug
elected Souator, a position he has loug
sought. Although ho has stated that ho
wus a candidato tor no office, his consti?
tuents remember that he made the samo
statement before his lust ro-elootion, and
this with a pretty accurate knowledge of
bis movements, which his unxiety pre?
vent.-) beiug kept ns secret ns ho desires,
causes no faith to bo put in any asser?
tion he may mako in this regard. Tho
Treasury is empty, and even now tho
Lunatic Asylum, Stute Penitentiary, and
other public institutions aro being run
on borrowed capital, and discounted
warrants; th0 quarantine fund of 32,500
is refused paymeut; the school fund of
3300,000 has not boen paid in any
amount, und the Superintendent of tho
Lunatic Asylum has mortgaged his own
private property to tho amount of
315,000, that tho iumatos may bo cared
for. At first glance it would naturally
appear that the Statu Administration is
accountable for all this-and much more
-the enormous debt. Well, it is, oithor
directly or indirectly. Tho only excuse
is, that tho opposition has been continu?
ally crying down her securities, and
therefore it took more bonds to raisa a
dollar, end all the money in tho Treasury
to pay the interest on them; but tho in?
terest is not paid; it is past due. The
next subterfuge is, that tho Legislature
was extravagant. This is true, but not
to that exteut represented, or to cover
tho largo deficiencies. It rests upon tho
shoulders of the present State Adminis?
tration, and the Republican party knows
it; and in November will inuko such a
swecpiug as will entitle it to the rank its
majority points toward. Scott cannot
by his gold again bo Governor, and he
is so well understood by his coustituouts
that tliey are disposed to throw bim
overboard as a political Jonah, who hus
brought them into disgrace.
LIBERAL REPCULICAN MEETING.-A

years. We are determined to furnish
our readers with the fullest and freshest

Union, as the campaign progresses, and
to this end will increase the nnmber of

PERSONAL INFLUENCE.-No person is
without influence. Some persons fall
discouraged, on the highway of life, be?
cause they cannot be this or that emi?
nent person. Why not be willing to be
themselves? No person who ever lived,
or who ever will live, is without influ?
ence. Why not make the most of it,
since you cannot grasp that which you
have let slip through your fingers? Nc
person in the world is exactly like you.
You have your own faults, but you have
your own excellencies, individual to
yourself. Give them air. Because you
are not a poet, why, then, should you
not be a good merchant? Because you
oonnot go to college, ahouid yod there?
fore forswear the alphabet? Because
you cannot build a palace, should you
not rejoice in your own hnmble room,
and that because it is your own? Will
not the sun also shine into your own
window, if you do not persist in shut?
ting it out? If you cannot have a whole
house full of flowers, may yon not have
one sweet rose?

rusty shot-gun with slugs and tied the
barrel to the stook with twine. No sane
man would have risked his life by using
such a blunder-buss. He fired at the
lad and killed him instantly. Mr.
Browne was one of the original owners
of the Cincinnati Ctommercic?, and as?
sisted in issuing the first number. It is
only a few weeks since we annonnoed by
telegraph that bis son, J. W. Browne,
had shot and killed a man in Memphis,
for seducing his daughter. Browne was
at the battle of New Orleans, and was
the hero of an oft-told story. He owned
some cotton, whioh Jackson took for
breastworks, nnd complained to "Old
Hickory," who thereupon gave him a
musket and made him do duty. It seems
a hard ending of life, after eighty-five
years, to go before one's Maker with
bands stained with a child's blood.
Two colored Liberal Republicans were
set upon by a nnmber of their Radical
brethren, also colored, in Raleigh, N. C.,
a few nights ago, at n ratification meet?
ing. Ono of them, Samuel G. Cross,
has not since been heard of, and as
threats were made against his life, it is
feared be bas been foully dealt with.
