Thursday Morning, October 17. ?872.
For President of the Unitea\8tates,
HORACE UllEKLEY, of New York.
n. o a ATZ DUO WM, or nmoan.
There is no nae to deny the faot that
the Liberal movement baa met a eerioua
eheok in Pennsylvania. We had strong
hopes of carrying the State, and with
Buckalow against suoh a man as Hart?
raa ft, wo ought to have carried it. Its
loss is a heavy rebuff undoubtedly, bat
Still there is no causo for despondonoy.
Wo have Indiana, end with that State,
Greeley bas plainly the inside track for
the Presidency. In Ohio, the most
astounding gains were made by the Libe?
rals, for the Radical majority whioh in
1868 footed np 41,000, has been reduoed
to 10,000, a falling off of 31,000. ?U
we need how is to heep oar lines un?
broken and the spirits of the people
from flagging. We are glad to note
that the tone of the Conservativo presa
is invariably encouraging. Not one that
we have yet coen has turned tail, bat,
like good soldiers, they seem but the
more determined in their efforts by their
The Liberal movement, founded in
justice and right, is alone capable of
gratifying the crowning desire of the
country-whioh is reconciliation-and
must finally prevail. Sectionalism on
either Bide, North and South, is being
looked upon with increasing disfavor
from day to day. It ie bound, eventu?
ally, to give way before the more patri?
otic, more politic and better principle of
genuine reunion and friendship. The
South made a grand step .forward in the
acceptance Of'Horace Greeley, and the.
hearty, universal endorsement our peo?
ple have given bim Bhows, bow earnest
and. sincere, they, are in their desire to
shake hands-to _ let .by-genes be by?
gones, and to join with i good men from
all parta of the country in': ptoinoting
our common intereatsy.and preserving,
in their purity, our republican institu?
tions. Thia overture of para cannot fail
to evoke a reciprocal foaling at the North.
The"] antipathy of certain of the North?
eastern States cannot bp .very readily
moderated, but in the West, and in those
communities whoro the population is
somewhat cosmopolitan, and not made
np entirely of puritanical New England?
ers, who nan never forgive us for the in?
juries they have heaped upon ns, we are
bound to meet with friendly sympathy.
As matters now stand, with 123 South?
ern votes nearly certain for Greeley, and
with the great States of New York in
the North and Indiana and Missouri in
the West on our side, we have u firm
basis for oar hope of ultimate BUCOOS?.
Grant could not but Greeley oan afford
to lose Pennsylvania. The greatest da?
mage it will do the oauee of reunion and
reconciliation is the discouragement to
the rank and file of the Liberals and De?
mocrat. If we present a bold front
and "keep the cow-hide dry" until the
5th of November, and then throw for?
ward our forces in solid phalanx, the
day ia ours, the South is redeemed, and
the country reunited.
MOUE RADICAL SLANDERS.-The Geor?
gia scalawags and carpet-baggers still
ontinue their howls to Grant for martial
law and military rule in this State.
Gen. Grant's organ, the New York
Times, publishes daily its column ol
"Ku Klux- outrages" and "rebel mur?
ders" from Georgia. The slander mill,
whioh two years ago was run in Atlanta
by Bullock's Private Secretary, Eugene
Davis, now seems, to be in operation all
over the State, and the telegraph wire?
bond beneath their daily bardens ol
falsehoods. In the Times, of the 8th
instant, we find a letter from Savannah,
a column in length, whioh gives a har?
rowing account of rebel atrocities all
over the State. The writer begs that o
regiment of United States soldiers be
sent here for the Presidential election.
He says in one portion of his letter:
"This whole State is nuder the con?
trol of the Kn Klux organization. Only
a day or two ago, in Emanuel County, a
Ko Klux Who had been apprehended by
She United, States.Marshal was rescued
from his' custody -chile waiting at Sta?
tion No. 9>?,<Central Railroad, by a band
of about fifty m?u.
"It is most important thatsomo meana
for protection be provided to ' aid us in
carrying on thia unequal fight, for our
lives almost. ..' . ..,,,
Tho. D?mocratie papers in Savannah
have proven the falsity of the charges
made against the good men of that aity.
We are convinced that the statement
about Emanuel County ia equally un*
true. Neither in Augusta or Savannah
botn in daily. railway communication
with that point-has anything been
heard of this terrible engagement at No.
9J?, between an United States Marshal
and a "band of fifty mon." But thc
Radicals caro not how monstrous the un?
truth, if it answers their purpose. Wbal
they wish is, to have the State over?
awed by Grant's bayoneta next Novem?
ber, at?o to accomplish this, they cart
not bow many slanders they publish tc

WASHINGTON, October 14, 1872.
To TUB EDITOK OF THE PHCENIX: Ever
since tho State eleotioos wbiob esme off
ou the 8t\x inst., I have availed myself
of every opportunity to learn the opi?
nions of the leading men of both par?
ties on the "situation," and moro espe?
cially to eliseo vor the probable tao tica of
the Grantites daring the remaining few
weeks of the campaign.
As regards the supporters of Greeley
and Brown, I find that the more intelli?
gent and better informed they are, the
less discouraged they also are. The very
best and wisest men of the Democratic
party-those who" have sustained the
Cincinnati and Baltimore nominations
most ably and- beartily by voice, pea and
money-telegraph and write encourag?
ingly to tho Congressional Committeo
from all parts of the country, counseling
increased activity, and ezpressiug confi?
dence ia the election of Horace Greeley
in November. And so do the lending
Liberal Republicans. Oa the other
hand, the Grant loaders are mighty se?
rious when they get together in secret
oonolave, although they have agreed to
assume, complacently and as a matter of
course, that the late eleotioos have vir?
tually settled the Presidential qaestion,
and that the vote in No vornbor will be a
mere matter of form. This, ot coarse,
for the treble purpose of encouraging
their own rank and file, discouraging
the Liberals,, and entioing to the stand?
ard of the party of hate, wveng?faud
general discord, the timid, the wavering,
the ignorant," and every unprincipled
scoundrel in the land, who, regardless of
his own convictions,- if he have any,
makes a point of always voting for the
most probably successful candidate.
Let me relate a little incident which
will serve to il lastrate the critical posi?
tion of the Grantites, as viewed and de?
tailed by one of their strongest men:
Ooo day lust week, aa I wua'aitting writ?
ing all alone Tri ? ??mi-priyate parlor of
a hotel, some. ats. or seven: men sauntered
in, one after ^he other, at short inter?
vals, all of who m I recognized aa leading
Administration men and personal friends
of Grunt-men who originate campaign
measures for the success of their party,
superintend their ^exooation,. raiao and
distribute fonds, &o.,.&c. Their meet?
ing .was i purely, accidental ; but - : as they
all know each other, a convoMtition soon
sprang Up on the all-engrossing topic of
tho day-the political "situation."
Shortly, they begun to speak unre?
servedly, so that I was o on li dent they
took it for granted I was in sympathy
with thom) each thinking, I pr?same,
that ono or r?qre of thia o tuera knew mo.
Liasaur? y on I reit 'somewhat ill at ease,
but as; I bad neither forced myself
among them nor stolen in-they having
rather intruded on mo-and as it so hap?
pened that my positron in tho room, was
such that I. could .not leave it without
attracting general attention, I concluded
to remain and take the few notes, from
which I condense the following opinion
of a leading Grant .mau on Greeley's
"Now, gentlemen," said the speaker,
who had been mach deferred to during a
running desultory interchange of views
of some twenty minutes, and was now
asked to give the coterie his real opipion,
as among friends, and without any re?
serve whatever, on the respective pros?
pects of the two candidates for the Pro
sidoney-"Now, gentlemen," said he,
"let us look at what I conceive to be a
few undeniable facts, which it will not be
wise for Republicans to ignore, in decid?
ing upon the strategy to be pursued by
the party during the remainder of the
campaign. Listen to the figures, aud I
think you will arrive, however reluctant?
ly, at the conclusions to which I have
been forced by them-that we can't
afford to lose a single point io the game.
If we do, we're gone. Wo must not re?
lax an effort. We must work up to the
very last hoar. Oar men must be made
to understand that. In our efforts to
discourage the Greeley men by assuming
to be invincible, we must cause some of
them to desert their standard and take
no further part in the contest, and a fow
of them to join oar ranks; but there is
reason to believe that these defections
will be inconsiderable. Let us not rely
upon them. Xiet ns rather take care that
this bragging of ours doe? not have the
effect of making the Republican masses
I over-confident, and, consequently, less
aotive and watchful than they have hith
I erto been, and still ought to be. Gen?
tlemen, let us henceforth base bar hopes
and oar vaticinations upon calculations
deduced from a calm .survey of the
"We Republicans appear to forgot
j entirely that Greeley is morally oertain
, of the electoral votes of all tho States

two-South Carolina and Mississippi.
Thia will givo him : Alabama, 10 electoral
votes; Arkansas, 6; Delaware, 3;Florida,
4; Georgin, ll; Kentucky, 12; Louisiana,
8; Maryland, 8; Missouri, 15; North Ca?
rolina, 10; Tennessee, 12; Texas, 8; Vir?
ginia, ll; West Virginia, 5; total (14
"If there over was any doubt of Gree?
ley's getting the votes of the above
Southern States, there can ba none noir.
The Georgia eleotion has settled that
question, ia my mind, beyond a doubt,
lt is no use to tell me we carried North
Carolina in August. We spent a large
amount of money there, and inundated
i the Stnto with speakers who cannot
again be spared to go there; and, after
. all, our majority was insignificant. Bo
sides, sinoe the August eleotion some ol
, the most active and influential mea in
the State, who were with us then, have
I gone over to the enemy with their per
, sonal friends and politioul adherents.
. Now, 123 votes from tho Sooth is a fear
j fal number for Greeley to start in upon
. against ns, when the more than possible
. chances of his getting the 61 additional
, votes necessary to elect him are con
"I think we may safely claim foi
Grant every State which I have not con?
ceded to Greeley, in the list I have just
read, except the seven following, whioh ]
are measurably doubtful:
"California, 6 electoral vote?; Connec?
tion!,- 6;, -Indiana, 15; Nevada, 8; New
Hampshire, '. 6; New Jersey, 9; New
York, 35;. total, 79.
"Now, gentlemen, I put it you can?
didly, whether Greeley'a chancea of get?
ting 61 of these 79 votes are not fair
are they not more than fair? Is he not
certain to get them, unless we work
even harder than we have hitherto
worked? New York and New Jersey
were generally conceded to hjm before
we got "intoxicated ovor 'the Pennsylva?
nia election! and I "im.assured that Hen?
dricks, who hasijuBt defeated us in Indi?
ana, is going -to stump his H ta to, and
throw the whole weight of his personal
iufluenoe, whioh hos been largely in?
creased by the prestige of his late suc?
cess, ia favor of Horace Greeley. New
York, New Jersey and Indiana would
give Greeley 59 of the Cl votes necessary
to elect him. For the other two votes,
he would have to rely upon California,
Connecticut, New Hampshire or Nevada.
I have not kept the ran of politics in
the latter State, but of the three others
I should say that. Conneotiout, judging
from the recent elections in that State,
will certainly go for Greeley in Novem*
ber, unless we leave off bragging and go
to work; and that California and New
Hampshire will each give its vote to the
party that works hardest to obtaiu it."
At this point, the speaker was inter?
rupted by the entrance of three or four j
Republican magnates who had just ar?
rived from the late battle-fields in Penn
sylvia; and, during the "noise and con?
fusion" which ensue j, I picked up my
noto book .and slipped away unobserved.

ADDRESS OF TUB NATIONAL DEMO
ORiTio COMMITTEE TO THE PEOPIIE OP THE
UNITED STATES.-The October elections
are over. They enable us to form a
tolerably aoourate idea of the true politi?
cal situation of the oountry.
lu Georgia, wo have to recount a vic?
tory for the Liberal ticket so unexam?
pled as to take her out of the list of
doubtful States, and practically to pro?
nounce in advance tho decision of at
least 125 votes in the electoral college.
To this number, it is only necessary to
add sixty votes to elect Greeley and
In Pennsylvania, tho distinguished
Chairman, of the Libera) Committee has
eloquently characterized'the methods by
which the .result of the election there
waa accomplished. We commend bis
statement to tho thoughtful attention of
In Ohio, despite most unprecedented
gains for the Liberal-Democratic ticket,
tho Grant managers have carried the
election by a reduced majority, having
brought to the polia their entire reserve
vote. Had oar Demooratio friends in
certain localities of that great common?
wealth shown the same earnestness and
activity, and enabled aa like our enemies
to record our entire strength, they
would now be exulting over a brilliant
victory. lu Indiana, the Democratic
and Liberal forces have achieved a most
important success over Pennsylvania
tactics moat unscrupulously employed
by the Administration and its allies,
showing thus that a free people, when
aroused, know their rights and dare
' maintain them. Indiana has fairly de?
monstrated that abe can neither be
"bought nor bullied." The moral of
those results ia that victory is still in
plain view of our national ticket, and
that energy and courage will assure it.
That victory mast be won. If we mean
to preserve free institntiobs on this con?
tinent, we must assure it.
The event in Pennsylvania, on Tues?
day last, when considered in its causea,
is the moat appalling political catastro?
phe that has ever taken place in this
country. Should the system throngh
whioh thia catastrophe was brought
about be condoned by the people and
foisted on the other States, it seals the
doom of freedom in America. A sad
contrast it ia, surely, that the city is
whioh our republic was born, amid the
anthems of a free people, should now be
tho first to toll the knell of its liberties.
It is for the free, unbought peoplo of all
tho States to calmly review the fearful
crime against suffrage in Pennsylvania,
and to decide whether it shall be repeat?
ed within their own borders.
For the first time the system of free
government and the sanctity of tho bal?
lot are really on trial in the United
States. From thia hour forward the
preservation of tho franchise in its in?
tegrity dwarfs all other issues.
Let our friends iu each of tho States
catch inspiration from the heroic con?
duct of our fellow-citizens in Georgia
and in Indiana; and from now till No?
vember let their struggle be manful and
unoeasiog for liberty and an untainted
ballot-box, for reform and an honest ad?
ministration of tho Government.

THE OHIO LID ER A LS UNDAUNTED.-The
Democratic State Executive Committee
ol Ohio bas issued the following address:
To THE DEMOCRACY OF OHIO: The re?
sult of last Tuesday's election shows
that Ohio was lost by'tho failure tp poll
the usual Democratic vote. Mortifying
as is the fact, justice to the Liberal Re?
publicans and aa earnest desire to re?
trieve the misfortune require us to
unite in our ohief towns. Tho Liberal
strength exceeded our most sanguine
estimate, and in tho country it fell short
pf the aggregate, vote of Liberals in the
city and- country who voted our State
ticket. Thisr addad to our Demooratio
vote of 1863,. would have ovoroome tho
Grant majority at that election and the
Democratic vote combined, nnd given us
the victory. Can wo repair the mischief?
Wo can. Four-fifths of the Democrats
who stayed at home last Tuesday can be
induced to vote for Greeley in Novem?
ber. Those who will absolutely refuse to
go to the polls will be counterbalanced
in numbers by those Republicans who
went against us last Tuesday, but will
voto for Greeley. We have only to poll
our usual Demooratio vote to snatch
from defeat a glorious victory. Liberals
stretch forth the hand; shall we refuse
to take it? Th? prostrate and plundered
South oriesoot for help; shall webe deaf
to their appeals? By Greeley's eleotion,
we can restore prosperity and good go?
vernment to the Soatb, kind feeling to
the now hostile sections, honor and
honesty to the civil service, respect for
the Constitution and laws to the Na?
tional Administration. Gould we expect
more with Grant in the Presidency?
Gould ff?re expect tho oo-operatiou in
Congress, whioh Greeley would com?
mand? Are patriotio Democrats willing
to lose all the beneficent results of a
victory, oat of personal hostility to
Greeley or disgraceful lethargy? Are
Ohio Democrats ready to let our great
and proud State become debauohed and
hopelessly subjugated, like Pennsylvania,
by hordes of mercenaries, paid by publio
plunder? Democrats, your union with
the Liberals in Ohio has not been fruit?
less. It bas given Hamilton County by
aear 6,000 majority, whioh secures tho
Constitutional Convention and the Le?
gislature, and a United States Senator.
Should both Ohio and Pennsylvania go
for Grant, the chances are still in favor
of Greeley's election. If Connecticut,
New York, New Jersey and Indiana are
added to those border and Southern
States which are certain for Greeley, this
will give him a clear majority. We have
already, by a glorious and aggressive
fight, foroed the Grant party to its knees,
und can conquer it in November. Fel?
low-Democrats, work till November,
heartily and hopefully. The Liberals
will take care of themselves. Let tho
Democratic County Committees get lists
of those Democrats in the cities and in
the townships who failed to vote last
Tuesday, and direct their efforts to them.

The Liberal Republican Committee
has issued the following address:
The smoke of Tuesday's battle has
cleared away, so that we are now able to
report fully results. We have met au
army of veterans, flushed with years ol
victory, and supplied to repletion with
all the weapons that a party in power
could furnish, with all the resources of
a great Government at command, and
yet in our first onset victory crowns out
banners. It has been conoeded upon all
hands that the IOBB to Grant in October
of either of the three great central
States then voting would be victory for
Greeley in November. Indiana is ours,
and Ohio can be made ours, and it only
remains now to galber promptly thc
fruits of viotory. Ohio has done nobly.

If you feel dull, despondent, drowsy,
debilitated, have frequent head-ache,
1 month tastes badly, poor appetite, and
tongue ooated, you are Buffering from
, torpid liver, or "Biliousness." Nothing
