For President of the United 8tate$.
JiOR&OR GRBBLBT. or New York.
B. GRATZ BROWN, of Mlsiourt.
Gaard tb? Polia.
South Carolinians, TenneBseeans and
Virginians, of the Connties bordering
on North Carolina, it is y oar daty to aid
your brethren of the old North State, in
this their hoar of trial. Yon can render
great assistance by attending the polls
on the day of election, uud guard them
against imported voters. Many schemes
are on foot to carry the State by the Ad?
ministration party, the most outrageous
of which yon can frustrate. Attend the
polls, all who can, on the day of elec?
tion, and spot the voters who will be im?
ported for the occasion.
The Grant organs are exhuming politi?
cal sentiments, bnried a quarter, or the
half of a century since, with a view to
show that Democrats are inconsistent in
supporting Greeley, and that Greeley is
inconsistent -with bia previous utterances.
This is ajl.very obildich and Billy on the
part of those m um my-hunters. They
forget that with the revolution of nges
there is also a revolution of oiroum
etanoes; and that the man who professes
now the same sentiments which he pro?
fessed twenty-five years ago would, in
many oases, be looked npon as a fool.
Many of these very men who are now
.sneering at others for changing their
?sentiment-now friends of the abolition
?of slavery-were, twenty-five years ago,
the most bitter opponents of the aboli?
tion of slavery in the land. Many of
them who were then friends of the
United States Bank are now the moBt
violent opponents of that system; and
many who hounded down foreigners and
* Catholics are anything bat what they
were when they knew nothing! And it ie
by suoh virtuous and consistent critics aa
these that the Democrats of the United
States, who are striving to get rid oi
Grant and his large family of office?
holders, are sneered at for inconsistency
ia their support of Greeley. They for?
get that the prime objeot of all true pa?
triots and tax-payers is to gat rid ol
Grant, nepotism and gift-taking; and
that once rid of these encumbrances al!
other things will come right.
As to the pitiful expedient of exhum?
ing extinct extracts from the writings ol
Mr. Greeley and others-applicable tc
other times and a totally different condi?
tion of things-we have little or nothing
to say. The whole thing is absurd npoi
its own face, and shows only too plainly
the desperate shifts to which the sup
porters of Grant are driven, in ordei
that they may hold on. to their offioei
and the flesh-pots thereunto attached
The whole practice is too simple anc
Billy for discussion. These sly politioiani
forget that their present Radioai Preei
dent was, np to the time of his eleotion
a Democrat. They forget that Hour
Clay, who died the great leader of tin
Anti-Demooratio party, commenced lift
as one of the leaders of the Domooracy
and was chosen Speaker of the House o
Representatives by the Democratic part]
of the United States. They forget tba
Ben. Butler, who is now the chief bourn
in pursuit of what he calls rebels, vote?
over and again for Jeff. Davis, au th
Democratic candidate for President o
the United States.
These men also forgot that, in otho:
oouutries besides our own, enlightenei
men change their views and sentiment
with the obanges of times and of oil
oumstanoes. They forget that one o
the most illustrions rulers of the Briticj
empire-the late Sir Robert Pee!-oom
menood his political career as a high prc
teotlonist, and died-lamented by th
people of that empire, as a free trader
They forget that the present illnstrion
head of that illimitable power-Rigb
Hon. Wm. E. Gladstone-commence
his career in political life as a Tory, an
is now the revered head of the liben
party of Great Britain. So it will b
with Greeley, notwithstanding all the
he may have eaid against Democrats
and all that Democrats may have cai
against him. Words, when they ceas
to have application, are merely wordi
and it is only children who dabble i
auch toys-not knowing their import c
meaning. The British people now kno<
what Gladstone meant; and the Amer
can people will folly know, on the ?th c
Marah next, what Greeley means.
The unasoal oiroacosUnoe of a Cathe
lie priest morning to private life has ot
curred at Prague, in Austria. His nam
is Konrad Syha, and be has published
long lettes in the Deutsche VoOcszeitum
of tho lit instant, giving his reasons fe
Parta is blessed with a new exeoutioi
er? He hes "the face ot a corpse," ant
his name is Rook-which doubtless sya
bolizes his heart.
PoiitTiOAii DoTXiNoa.-Grant's Ka
Klax are again at work in Indianapolis.
The News says: "J. T. Mahorney, aoo
lored Greeley man, was assaulted, yester
day evening, by some roughs of hiB own
race, on aeooant of his political expr?s
sions of opinion. The colored voters,
ander the leadership of Dr. Elbert and
Bussell, are ruling with a high hand,
and a defection of one of their number,
because of a desire for free speech or
free thought, is severely punished."
In a conversation with an old friend,
Daniel Drew recently said: "I tell all my
friends that we have got to vote and
work for the old fellow. He is an honest
man, and the only one that can beat
Grant." He said tbat it was a mistaken
idea that the Wall street bankers and
brokers were not for Horace Greeley,
and assured bis friend that they were all
for Greeley and Brown. "Bet y oar
money on Horace," said the old finan?
cier, "if yon want to win."
Conkling's mendacity is equaled only
by his aadaoity. He defends Grant on
all the counts. He defends his nepotism.
He defends his gift-taking. He defends
his sea-side loitering. He admits every?
thing and endorses everything. It is
this bad tendenoy-this moral vicious?
ness-this open depravity-confessed
and extolled by Gonkling and Morton,
both of whom are men of the lowest
order of moral tone, and each of whom
is the fit tool and toady of the President
-whioh sliookB and disgusts the better
sense of the country with Grantism.
All advioes from Maine point to a
Greeley triumph in both the September
and November elections. Even the de?
feat of Speaker Blaine for Congress, in
the Augusta district, is hinted at; and
in the Eastern district, Halo's defeat is
certain. There is a prospect that ex
Governor Obamberlain will accept thc
Greeley nomination in the Portland dis?
trict, in whioh case he would surely
carry it. The Portland Argus, in a lead?
ing editorial, significantly and boldly re?
marks that Maine will cast its electoral
vote for Greeley, and adds: "A few
weeks will bring developments ? o make
this plain to all, as it is now to us."
Another prominent New York Repub?
lican politician, the Hon. E. B. Pottle,
of Ontario County, hos left the ranks of
the Grant party. Mr. Pottle has served
two terms in Congress, and was a mem?
ber of the last Grant State Convention
at Elmira. This form of "ooncomity"
in the renomination party is becoming
GENERAL LONQSTBKET.-One cf the
most serious defections that has yet
taken place from the Grant party is that
of the celebrated Confederate officer,
General Longstreet. General Long?
street was one of the bravest officers on
the Southern Bide daring the war, and
Gettysburg and many another hard
fought field bear testimony to his ability
ar>d gallantry. He was one uf the first
after the dose of the war to accept the
new regime and acknowledge the altered
state of affairs. In 1867 he was ap?
pointed, to office in New Orleans by
General Grant, and till within a few
weeks hai continued in the service of
the Government. On the 28th of May a
letter appeared with his signatnre, an?
nouncing his resignation of the position
of Surveyor of Customs in New Orleans.
He detailed at length. hiB reasons for
taking the step, bat said no word of
breaking with General Grant. Since
then, however, to the astonishment of
many of his friends, and to the conster?
nation of the Administration party, he
has come oat strongly for Greeley, and
renounced all allegiance to Grant.
The New York Tribune makes the fol?
lowing reply to the paragraph whioh
Mr. Greeley's enemies credit him with in
relation to beggaring thc Sooth at the
dose of the war:
1. That many bitter things were said
by all of as at that bitter time, jost after
the attack on Sumter and the Baltimore
massacre, whioh would not have been
said io November, 1860. 2. That the
words in question were part of an edito?
rial urging a stringent blockade fot.the
parp?se of shortening the war, and that
with their context they do not.seem
"savage" so mach ai extravagantly rhe?
torical. 8. That whatever they are, Mr.
Greeley did not write them, did not ap?
prove them, and never saw them nntil
after they were printed. 4. Tbat they
were written, as we have since ascer?
tained, by a gentleman who is now a
zealous as well as able supporter of Pre?
sident Grant, and a leading editor of the

STAMFORD, CONN., July 25, 1872.
J. A. Selby, Esq., Columbia, S. G.
DEAR SIB: It is refreshing to the lovers
of right and justice to read such an
article as appears in the PHONIX, of Joly
23d, headed "Indict the Thieves."
I notice also a report of the trial, so
far as it has gone, of the effort to force
the Greenville and Columbia Railroad
i ito bankruptcy. Why wasn't D. T.
Corbin put upon the stand and inquired
of-from whom'did yori re?oive'.your re?
tainer in this case? The toilers in ini
auity also carno to the surface in the
ontinentul Telegraph charter forgery
and swindle. Two-thirds of the Conti?
nental Telegraph charter belong to me
and my son. No legal assignment has
ever been made; no consideration bas
been paid, unless lying be a considera?
tion; und if I have a trae copy of what
purports to be an assignment of tho
charter, which names $387,500in second
mortgage bonds of tho Greenville and
Columbia Railroad Company as a consi?
deration, I denounce it a forgery in its
entirety, and whoever perpetrated it
must answer in the courts, as I will not
allow my name used for any purpose
without my knowledge or ooosont, sud
especially made the busis of a damnable
You are quite right in again raising
the cry, "To the courts." There is your
only hope. There is the only place your
people, the bond-holders and the public
can ever know the amount and extent of
the swindle. The registry gag will never
do it, and if the Financial Agent of South
Carolina means honesty, he will come to
the front, bring his books with him, and
it would not be amiss, perhaps, to bring
E. IL Willard's along at the same time.
In the event of a failure of both to
make a satisfactory showing, I will volun?
teer to exhibit some figures and facts
which they, in the hurry of business,
have possibly omitted to put down on
paper. At all events, I am confident of
being able to illuminate the dark places,
should we chance to fall upon any in the
course of the examination. To the
courts, then, if you would right your
wrongs, and your own peopie must take
the initiatory steps; and if they will, I
think you will find not only sympathy,
but substantial aid, from this quarter.
At all events, your chances are more than
even to make Nebuchadnezzars ont of
the Ishmuelites who are permitted by
President Grant to prey upon you. Truly
yours, WM. M. HALL,
Merchants' and Underwriters' Ag't,
SOUTH CAROLINA TO ELECT CALDWELL.
An influential citizen of Sumter, South
Carolina, writes us a private letter, in
which he states that numbers of negroes
will be transported into this State from

"A gentleman was in our office a few
days ago on professional business, and
in the course of conversation on general
topics, said that his employees at a steam
saw mill, on the line of tho Wilmington,
Columbia and Augusta Railroad, had
asked permission to go to Wilmington
on the first of August. He also said
that only a few of these negroes were
from North Carolina, the rest hoing from
South Carolina. I have no doubt that
every railroad running into your State
will be worked to ite full capacity to fur?
nish votes for the Radicals on the first
Such is the programme. Yon know
what to expect. Prepare! This sort of
thing mnst not be tolerated. Guard the
registration books and the polls with a
vigilant eye. Challenge every man that
comes from South Carolina. Don't let
us be cheated out of our rights. It is
time for this old Radical trick to be so
folly exposed as to cease to do injury.
Watch the polls. Keep ont all the ille?
gal votes you eau. - Wilmington Star.
ANDERSON, THE ALLEGED BANK SWIN?
DLE?.-The Savannah News is in posses?
sion of information that reveals an
amount of "financial ability" on tho part
of J. M. Anderson, the alleged bunk
swindler, who was arrested in Maoon,
that is rather astonishing. The Govern?
or-General of the Dominion of Canada
has made a requisition on President
Grant for the person of this individual.
Despatches were sent to Macon to retain
him at all hazards, but reached there
after he had been discharged. He is
charged with forgeries on the Bank of
British America to the amount of ?28,000
sterling, equivalent to $158,000.
The Macon Telegraph and Messenger
learns that, in all probability, a reward
of at least $1,000 will be offered for An?
derson's apprehension. It says:
"To those who wish to aid in ridding
the State of an impostor, and at the
same time gain a handsome reward, the
following description will be of assist?
"Anderson is slightly over six feet in
height, rather round shoulders, speaks
slowly and in a low tone, brown hair,
rather bald, reoeding forehead, peculiar
expression of the eye, wears a mous?
tache and heavy side whiskers, grey,

Mr. Boutwell does not believe in shak?
ing hands across the bloody chasm. Not
he. The South must be governed into
subjection, and their willingness to be
governed by Gen. Grant's oarpet-baggers
ia the sole proof of their fitness to go?
vern themselves. It is said that the
more yon whip a spaniel the more he
will love you. Seoretary Boutwell evi?
dently thinks that the South is peopled
with spaniels, and proposes to win their
love by a liberal dispensation of the lash.

INDIAN AFFAIRS. -TORONTO, Joly 25. -
Tho following advices have been received
from Fort Garry, Manitoba: Tbe Indian
Commissioner, Mr. Simpson, returned
to-day from Fort Francis, where he had
been attempting to make a treaty with
the Indians. His efforts were entirely
unsuccessful; for thirteen days he was
surrounded by about 2,500 savages, who
would neither entertain nor make propo?
sitions in regard to a treaty. The gold
developments in the Shebondawin coun?
try have filled the Iudians with ideas too
lofty for-au approach. Mr. Simpson is
confident that unless a military foroe is
provided there will be serious trouble.
The Iudians told him that they proposed
to stop mining operations.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 25.-Letters from
Camp McDowell, Arizona, state that de?
legations from the Tonto, Final and
Cayetero Apaches, and Apacho Mojaves
Indians, came into that place professing
peace, but aa they represented only a
portion of tribes numbering over 1,000
warriors, they were evidently impelled
by the movements of troops under Gen.
Crook. They were informed that they
must all come in and surrender their
arms and agree to remain on the reserva?
tion. They were also informed that they
could not show the white flag, retaining
their arms and drawing their rations,
and then return to the war-path when
the pursuit of the troops ceased.
CHICAGO, July 25.-The St. Paul
Dispatch says that despatches were re?
ceived late last night by Gov. Austin,
from Brainard, Minnesota, stating that
the town was filled with Chippewa In?
dians who were threatening trouble.
They had been ordered to leuve but re?
fused, and tbe Governor was culled upon
for troops. Three companies of the 1st
Regiment were ordered to leave on a
special train this morning, and they will
be joined on the route by other compa?
nies of tbe regiment. The cause ol the
trouble is supposed to be the banging,
by a mob, of the two murderers of Miss
The New York Herald says: "It is re?
ported that President Grant intends
eoon to make a trip down the St. Law?
rence to see the charms of its thousand
islands, and experience the excitement
of passing through its rushing rapids.
Judging by the reports from North Ca
roliua, it would appear that bo might
find enough of excitement and suspenso
in the tumultuous current of its near
election. Wisdom should urge him to
devoto his present attention to the
mighty flood of public sentiment whioh
is now settling the question of his re?
election in November, or such a defeat
as will allow him plenty of leisure io the
future to become acquainted with Cana?
dian geography. Rocks and quicksands
threaten the life of his political fortunes
in the shape of improper and unfit Cabi?
net ministers and officers in high sta?
tion, in whom honest men have no con?
fidence. Their removal should have
more interest to the chief executive than
a pleasure excursion. His first task
should be to rescue himself from the
hands of politicians and carpet baggers,
and take bis proper place as the leader
of the people."
It is reported that the President and
Secretary Boutwell, during the conside?
ration of the question as to what super?
visors should be retained, had a discus?
sion which was botb leng and acrid.
The President desired to retain for the
Missouri and Arkansas District an old
personal friend, General McDonald.
Secretary Boutwell desired to retain Dr.
Presbury of tho Virginia District.
Presbury was obnoxious to Senator
Lewis, on acocunt of the former insist?
ing upon conducting his office and mak?
ing his own appointments, or at least re?
fusing to make those demanded by the
Senator. Lewis wanted Presbury de?
posed, but Boutwell said he was a faith?
ful, capable and honest man, and bis
services were needed. The discussion,
it is said, was resumed this morning.
The result is, that both Presbury and
McDonald are dropped from the lists.
It is represented here publicly, and by
responsible persons, that tbe board of
publia works have discharged workmen
who were in favor of Greeley's election,
and made it known that none but Grunt
men would be employed.
A heavy land slide occurred in Pitts?
burg, on the hill-side immediately oppo?
site the H'?S works, on Second avenue, on
Thursday, and demolished four new
brick houses in course of construction.
Tbe slide started at tho top of the hill,
and as it moved down, gathered in quan?
tity, until it assumed the proportions of
an avalanche. The heavy mass of earth
struck the buildings with such violence,
that in an instant they were reduced to a
pile of rubbish. The kitchen of ono of
tbe houses fronting on the avenue waa
also crushed in, but the family, who
were eating dinner at the time, escaped
