The Presidential Election.
Senator Sumner sailed from Boston on
Tuesday for Europe, in the steamship
Malta. Before leaving he confided to F.
W. Bird, Chairman of the Republican
State Committee, a speech which he in?
tended to deliver at Fanueil Hall on
Tuesday night, but was prevented by ill
health. Tbe address is very long, and is
entitled "The Presidential Election
Greeley or Grant."
Mr. Sumner says, while dealing with
the issue before us with perfect frank?
ness, he can say nothing wbioh is not
prompted by a sincere desire to serve the
country, and especially promote that era
of good will when the assent of all shall
be assured to the equal rights of all. By
tbe operation of tbe electoral system and
tho dictation of the national conventions,
tbe choice for President is narrowed ta
Grant or Greeley. No prof?re ace for
another could be made effective. Pre?
ferring Greeley, be states his reasons at
length for believing Grant unfit for Pre?
sident. His re-election would undoubt?
edly be regarded as an endorsement ol
abuses and unrepublican pretensions,
But his supporters, while admitting bis
fuilures, abuses and pretensions, so noto
rious in his civil life, commend his re
election as necessary to uphold the Re
publican party. The Senator's doubti
as to the proper course for him to pur
I sue were at once removed whou he suv
the Democratic party adopt the candi
date opposed to President Grant, wh<
was an original Republican, and airead;
nominated by a Republican Convention
und at the same time accept the Republi
eau platform on which he was nominated
An old party which had long stood ou
against the Republican cause now place,
itself on a Republican platform, the bes
ever adopted, with a Republican candi
date who was the most devoted Republi
can ever nominated, thus completely ac
cepting the results of the war and offei
ing the hand of reconciliation.
In considering the reasons which fi
vor Greeley, he finds two reasons, diffei
ing in character, but of chief impo:
ta nco: First, Greeley represents the r<
formed oivil service, with the one-ten
principle, without which this reform
a sham; secondly, he rt1 presen ts recono
liation, not only between sections, bi
between races, which is essential to tl
reposo of the country and tbe snfe-guai
of equal rights. To these must be addi
that be does not represent those person
pretensions so utterly inconsistent wil
republican government, which are no
known as Grantism. Mr. Sumuer thc
reiterates and amplifies his previo
charges of nepotism against Preside
Grant, condemns gift-taking, denouno
tbe San Domingo business, advocat
the one-term principle and civil servi
reform. He then speaks of reooncili
tion as follows:
"From the practical question of ci'
service reform, I pass to reconciliatio
being the most important issue ever pi
sented to the American people. Re?u
oiliation not only between two on
warring sections, but also between t'
races. This issue, so grand and beau
ful, was distinctly presented whon E
race Greeley, accepting the Republic
nomination at Cincinnati, wrote thi
" 'In this faith and with tho distil
understanding that, if elected, I shall
President not of a party, bot of a wh
people, I accept your nomination in t
confident trust that the masses of <
countrymen, North and South, are eai
to clasp hands across the blood? cha
which has too long divided them, f
getting that they have been enemies
the joyful consciousness that they
and must henceforth remain brethren
The issue was again presented, wh
after the Democratic party, in Natio
Convention, acting under an irreuisti
movement of the people, nominated
author of those words, the supporter:
the administration rejected the proffe
band. If not war, they would prese
at least the passions of war, and inst
of peace would scatter distrust and
fiance. For Sumner there was but
course. Had he failed to sympatl
with this endeavor ho would have b
false to tho record of his life, lie
viewed his record, devoting much sj
to extracts from his speeches, shovi
that peace and reconciliation were alv
his ultimate ideas. While insisting
the abolition of slavery, urging
frauchiuement, vindicating equal rij
of all, he has constantly declared tl
were for no purpose of vengeance
punishment, but for tho security of
citizen and the establishment of
Government on just foundations,
able to vote a second time for Gi
and confident that the choice of Gre
will tend to assuro the triumph of pc
knowing something of tho spirit in w
tho Democratic party has adopted
as u candidate, knowing something
of his eminent cbaraoter, I cannot d
that with his olection tbore will be a
order of things, and surviving irriti
will bo lost in concord. The wi
ended; thero must bo an ond also tc
ligereut passions, and the freedmei
sured in their rights, must enter nj

Mr. Sn mu or proceeds to givo ext
from leading Democrats, aud argu
prove tho adhesion of tho Deann
party to Greeley's nomination, expi
tbe beliof that tho Democracy will
tho faith they covenanted at Baltii
and demonstrates that their int?r?t
in so doing, and that interest is o
tho most powerful laws of huma
turo. Of former rebels, ho says
under tho influence of uncontro
passions and for the sake of sic
they went into tho rebellion; but
that tho passion has abated und si
j ceased, they eeo that nothing is g
by prolonging tho animosities it e
dered. Peace bas become their al
ing interest. So obvious is tho a
tage from its assured possession, t
is unreasonable to suppose them
forent when it is within reach,
absurd to suppose them professing
as a cover for war-war in whicl
know they mast fail. And has uot the
time arrived when in sincerity we shou'd
accept the olive branch? Is it not time
f jr the pen to take the place of the
sword? Is it not time for the executive
mansion to be changed from a barrack
cesspool to a life-giviug fountain? Is it
not time for a President who will show
by example tho importance of reform,
and teach the duty of subordinating per?
sonal objects to the public service? Is
it not time for the head of the Nationul
Government to represent the idea of
peace and reconoiliatiou rather than that
of battle and strife? Is it not time for
that new ora, wbeu ancient euemies, for?
getting the past, shall "clasp bands" in
true unity with tho principles of the
Declaration of Independence as tho su?
preme law? Deploring tho fate of Po?
land and of Ireland, I seize the earliest
moment to escape from similar possi?
bility here. Mindful that the memories
of tho past can only yield to a happy
present, something would I do to pro?
mote this end. Anxious for tho equal
! rights of all, and knowing well that no
text of law or constitution is adequate
without a supporting sentiment behind,
I cannot miss the opportunity afforded
by the present election of obtniuing this
strength for our great guarantees.
Reconstruction is now complete.

A UNITED STATES COURT HOUSE, POST
OFFICE AND JAIL REQUIRED AT GREEN?
VILLE.-Tho grand jury of the United
States District Court, now sitting at
Greenville, have just made a present?
ment to the court, in which, after repre?
senting tho preaeut wretched oondition
of the Uuited States prisoners in the
County jail, they make the following
timely aud sensible suggestions:
The grand jory respectfully present,
that there is no jail or penitentiary witb
iu tbe limits of this State at all proper
for the confinement of prisoners of the
United States, sentenced to long terms
of imprisonment. Such prisousrs have
now to be transported, at great expense,
1,000 miles to the Albany penitentiary,
without tho limits of the State, aud be?
yond tho reach of their friends, thereby
greatly increasing tho privations of their
imprisonment. The grand jury would
respectfully request that this matter be
brought to the attention of the Congress
of the United States, together with the
advantages possessed by Greenville for
such an institution, on account of its
central situation, healthfulness of cli?
mate aud cbenpness cf living.
The grand jury would further recom?
mend that the application heretofore
mude to Congress for an appropriation
for tho erection of a building for a
Uuited States court house and post
office bo renewed. The court being
without a suitable building for its ac?
commodation, and the po.st oQice, from
its nature and surrounding, beiHg at uny
time liable to be destroyed by tire and
tbe mails entirely lost. Tho Oity Coun?
cil of Greenville still hold themselves
ready to furnish the site.
It was ordered by Judge Bryan that
copies of the above portion of the pre?
sentment be furnished by the clerk to
the Senators in Congress from this State,
and to the Representatives in Congress
from tbe Fourth Congressional District
of this State, and also to the Secretury of

stanceB tho most extraordinary. Two of

a few weeks ago. The cause of Mrs.
Gardner's death was a congestive chill,
and after she bad been considered dead
for six boars, and wus beiug prepared
for the grave, she returned to conscious?

that she bad been to the better land and
had seen both of her departed sisters
and other friends; that it was a most

She said that she bad permission to re?

THE BALTIMORE ROHHLRY demonstrates
the oft told tale that cheap safes, old-fa
shioned safes, safas not np to the times, are
the temptations to burglary. Bankers may
pr?vido watchmen, and may use other safe?
guards, but they will not put their money in
thc watchman's pocket, or trust in a tin or
wooden box, no mutter how many guards are
used. The safe, after all, is tho last recepta -
clo. No amount of watching or guarding
will ever make a poor old-style safe trust?
worthy. This is the citadel, and should be
tho best that can be made. TUEBE IS DCT ONE
