Nothing definite yet from Louis
ville.. It was supposed that Bayard
of New Jersey would be the Per
manent chairman. O'Conor, it is
reported j' will not accept the nomin
ation if proffered him. New York,
Pennsylvania, and New Jersey are
well represented by delegates.
The cry of the Democratic party
is "Anything to beat .Grant." It
was the'same during the war.
Did anybody ever hear these same
men "enthuse" under the cry of
"Anvthinsr to beat Jeff Davis?" If
the Democratic party had exhibited
as much.zealto put down the rebel
lion and Jeff Davis as they now do
to beat Grant, the war would not
have lasted one-third of the time it
did, and the party would then have
made a record which they would
not to day ask the nation to bury
The greatest gathering of this
year will be the Soldiers and Sailors'
Convention at Pittsburgh, on the
17th,of September. Great prepara
tions are being made in all the East
ern and Western cities, organizing
the soldiers into regiments and
brigades to attend the Convention.
.The' citizens of Pittsburgh are mak
ing every preparation possible to
entertain the vast assemblage, and
when the hotels are filled the citi
zens will throw open their doors for
the entertainment of the soldiers;
and every soldier who had occasion
to pass through Pittsburgh during
the war, knows both the ability and
willinmess of Pittsburgucrs to en-
tertain -them. The railroads will
carry passengers to this meeting at
rfdiieed rates. Quite a number
the soldiers here contemplate going,
and we should be pleased to see
Holmes county largely represented.
The Democrats are figuring on
i?nnh1fcnn losses in the coming
Maine election, September 9th. The
majority for Grant in 18G8 was 20,-
403; and that for Pcrham, lor Uo
ernor in 1871, was 10,031. The
arithmetician of, the New York
World figures out from these data
that "if the Republicans should car-
ry'Maine by a majority of less than
12000i and they should lose in the
same ratio throughont the country,
Mr. Greeley's election is secure.
Here are two big if ''much virtue
in an if." Both the World's hypo
timcps are as improbable as the
coming, after date, of Plantamour's
comet" Maine 'will go Republican
hv over 12,000; and if it does not,
the rest of the country will lake care
.of. tUelC and of Grant too. JNever
theless; the elections of the Sd inst.
an Vermost, and of the 9th inst, in
JIainc, will serve as important indi
cations of the drfft of public opinion
and feeling on the Presidential question.
GRANT'S ELECTION ESSENTIAL TO
Finding it impossible to ignore
the palpable fact that nearly all the
iteady-going men who control the
permanent business enterprise of
the country, and who stand at the
head of the various interests upon
which its solid prosperity is so
largely based,-are-nneqmvocally in
favor of the election of the Repub
lican Presidential ticket the Gree
ley organs are trying to create a
false impression concerning it, and
to, arouse the prejudice of the work
ing classes of the country, upon the
alleged ground that the interests of
the capitalists and of the working
men are squarely opposed to each
other, and that what tends to bene
fit the former must necessarily in
sure to the corresponding disadvan
tage of the latter. This sophism is
altogether too shallow. Fortunately
for the whole people we don't have
any superior or inferior classes in
this country at least we have not
had any since the Republican party
wiped out of existence the collossal
oligarchy of the peculiar institution,
and removed from Jhe honest brows
of labor the stigma which slavery
had affixed there. Our rich men to
day were our poor men of yesterday.
and the capitalists of to-morrow is
fully as likel- to be drawn from the
factory or forge of to day as from
any other quarter. Moreover, the
business condition of the country
affects the poor man perhaps even
more directly and vitally than the
rich. If the commercial, financial
and manufacturing classes cannot
afford to intrust the policy of the
government into the hands of reck
less and unsafe theorists like Gree
ley-, neither can the millions of
workers who, with their families,are
dependent on the continued exist
ence and progression of these vari
ous agencies and activities of na
tional growth and power, afford to
do so either. The prosperity or ru
in of the one class is the prosperity
or ruin of the other, and the hum
blest worker in the ranks of toil has
as profound an interest, as vital
stake, in averting the" general firian
cial convulsion and industrial col
lapse which would follow the' elec
tion of Horace Greeley, as the man
who counts his money .by the mill
ion. The Republican party .may be
the rich man's safety it certainly
is the poor man's only hope.

GEN. GRANT AND THE DEATH OF
It would be iupossible to Jtcep up
with the'slanders, new and old, with
which the President's enemies have
determined to destroy his good
name. One of the last of these was
invented and used by Gen. Kilpat-
rick in Maine and elsewhere, to the
effect that when Gen Rawlins
lay on his deathbed he telegraphed
to Gen. Grant at Saratoga: "Gen
eral. I am dying; I must see you be
fore 1 die; come here!" Grant, said
Kilpatrick, refused to go, preferring
rather to attend a ball at baratoga.
Kilpatrick dwelt upon the theme,
contrasting the dying agonies
Rawlins with the ingratitude
Gen. Grant in refusing to hasten to
his bedside. The only grain
truth in this story, is the fact that the
President was in Saratoga during
Rawlins last illness. While there
ho received a dispatch from Gen
Sherman, merely saying 'Rawlins is
worse.' At this moment a special
train was in waiting, which was to
convey the General to Utica, where
he expected to meet a large con
course of citizens, lucre was no
entreating, in Sherman's dispatch
to Grant to hurry back to Washing
ton. He was simply informed,
"Rawlins is worse." Grant instan

P. T. Barnum lately endorsed the
moral character of Greeley. Gree

editorial puffing forBarnum's moral

Barnum's residence at Bridgeport
Connecticut, and wheu the pair take
aheir walks abroad together inno

which is the "Prince of Humbugs."
The payment of $400,000,000 to

In 1SG2 the rebel General Beaure
gard wrote as follows: "It, is high
time to proclaim the black flag: let
the execution of Abolitionist pris

he writes: "We must all unite un

banner has lately been raised at Cin

were immediately turned on but the
steam pumps after a few revolutions
broke down and could not be worked

hatches to be battened down,Koping
thereby to smother the fire, and at

Once more the Binghamton He-

The Republican asks for a direct

or are fictions created by political
enemies. Let me say to reassure
you that I have never-been a mem
ber of theKnow-A othina tjartu, ana
have never voted with it, but that I
have always exerted myself
to light against it detrt
mentalprinciplesfrom the beginning
of Us existence, both by word and
action, and' upon every occasion
From the subioined extracts ot my
speeches, which have appeared m
several German papers, you may
gather that I have always declared
treely and openly the principle uiai
adopted citizens of our Union ought
to enjoy the same rights as tne na
tives, and that whatever oppression
of any class of citizens exists be
cause they differ from some other
classes, and principally becau'sethey
are foreignborn, is in striking con-
tradicton to the principles of true
religion, Uie fear or Uod, and the
spirit of our enlightened age, and
that such warring against our
immigrated citizens is most unjust,
inhuman, and impolitic.
These utterances arc ,in pcricct
accord with the liberal views winch
I have alwaj-s entertained during
my long political career. On this
basis .rests the whole labric- oi our
powerful Republican, party - the
nartv of wrogress whose immova
ble pillars are lrcedom, equality and
fraternity. This now is, and will be
my watchword as long as 1 live and
labor. With greater - en ergy, there
fore, I must denounce such a cnlum
nious, slander, and declare it a con
temptible manceuver which, though
without success, has been used
against me several times, especially
in the years 18ao and. isas, uytue
opponents of the" Republican party.
As you, honored gentlemen, are well
able to distinguish truth from false
hood, you will, I hope, Sirs, favor
me with your kind confidence in the
future. In this agreeable expecta

ily for your frank letter, I subscribe
myself, with all due respect your
Greeley lends money to a crowd
