THE CINCINNATI CONVENTION.

quest km, M What will the Cincinnati
Convention amount to 7 " .We hare
invariably answered that its chief re
sults will be witnessed ia the number
of those whose political doom wll be
sealed by contact with it. If it were
an independent and sincere bolt Irom
the Republican ranks upon any ques
tion of vital interest, and if the leaders
of it proposed to plant themselves
upon a platform based upon the dii
ference of opinion existing between
themselves and ths Republican party,
it would, without doubt, be fraught
with danger to the success of that
party. But it is no such thing.
Scaroelr anr two who aspire to a
leadership in the movement have sinv
ilar ideas upon any question of na
tional importance. It is a negative
movement, made np of those who are
habitual party grumblers, and who
would not be satisfied with the safest
seat in the next world if the govern'
ment was not carried on in accord
ance with their own peculiar ideas of
political economy That there is not
one single affirmative principle involv
ed in any controversy this handful
of malcontents may have with the Re
publican party is evidenced by, the
ict that the principles which will be
set forth as the basis of the movement,
and even the part which the Conven
tion and its candidates are to perform
in the coining campaign, are involved
in the deepest mystery even to those
who indicated the movement. The
convention will simply be potter's
clay to be moulded into whatever
shape may seem best; and those who
refuse to be moulded, will have
neither the pride of past party tradi
tion nor the hope ot future success
to bind them to the new born political
prodigy which may result from the
labors of the Convention.
This Convention, so far ss it will
affect the Republican party, will not
be so formidable as the' Cleveland
bolt in 1864. for the reason that the
Cleveland farce was an independent
Republican movement, and maintain
ed its identity as such, while the main
object of the Cincinnati movement
seems to be to find a purchaser. The
Democratic party is perfectly willing
to invest, but are not in haste to buy
a "pig in the poke,' and prefer to
act the part of Mr. Mioawber, and
see what turns np.
As an independent party move
ment. the Cincinnati Convention is
utterly insignificant, and any coalition
with the Democracy will be followed
by a falling off from both the con
trading parties which will render the
fusion a less formidable opponent than
would be the Democracy

THE ALABAMA CLAIMS.
THE ALABAMA CLAIMS. The Counter Case of Great Britain.
A London dispatch gives the fol
lowing synopsis of the counter case
of Great Britain as presented to the
Geneva Board of Arbitrators :
Part 1 begins by announcing that
to the American imputations of bos
tile motives and insincere neutrality
no reply whatever will be offered.
England distinctly re'uses to enter
into a discussion of those msinu
ations, because it would be inconsist
ent with her self-respect, irrevelant
to the main issue, and tecc to inflame
a controversy. England's governing
desire is to fulfil, even exceed her
international duties. Nor will any
reference be made to the claims for
indirect damages, as a correspon
dence with regard to them is pending
between England and the United
States. England assumes that the
cliirag are limited to losses occasioned
hy the Florida, Alabama, Georgia.
and Shenandoah, but does not object
to the introduction or the names of
nine other rebel cruisers added to
t e list by the American case. She
calls attention to the fact that none
of these vessels had previously been
men ioncd. No award is possible for
tbe depredations of the Boston and
Sallie, wLica are in the list, but are
not mentioned elsewhere in the case
of the United States, and were protv
ably inadvertently included. The
Board of Arbitration is reminded
that its conclusions must be formed
on proofs, not allegations, aad tbe
evidence must be sifted. The tt ate
ments of American Consuls are cred
ible, when made with regard to facta
within their personal knowledge, but
they are unreliable when dealing with
rumors. The Consuls of tbe Ameri
can Government, zealous toindiscre
tion, shared the irritability generated
b the war, and enoieous views
throughout the struggle colored their
reitort Kngland rJcl aa evi
dence tbe papers captured on the
Richmond, their authors being un
known Part 2 deals with the American
argument. It disputes the proposi
tion that a neutral power is bound at
the request of a belligerent to enforce
its municipal laws, snd add to them
if they are insufficient It admits
that reparation is due for an appreci
able injury resulting from a clear
violation of international duty, but ia
unable to attach a distinct meaning
to some of the twelve propositions of
the American case, and demurs to
the exceptionally rigorous applica
tion made of these propositions to
England. It urges that at the time
of the Confederate war the mere sale
and delivery of a vessel adapted for
war to a belligerent was not a viola
tion of neutrality. Nevertheless, on
this point it accepts tbe rules of the
treaty of Washington, not with the
overstrained construction put on them
by the Government of the United
Slates, but according to their obvious
support It regrets that tbe United
States should 6e fit tt strain the
interpretation ct these tules to tbe
uttermost instead of accepting them
in a fair and reasonable sense. It
argues that England was hound to
receive tbe Alabama ss she would
the vessel of war of any sovereign
State, and concludes by quoting from
Ortolan, the eminent French authori
ty on international law, to show that
tbe principles for which tbe United
States contend were never heretofore
seriously asserted or recognized in
Europe or America.
Part ? treats cf the precedents
adduced in tbe American case, and
replies thereto with others such as
the filibustering attacks of Lopez on
Cub, and Walker on Mexico and
Central America, and tbe Fenian
raids on Canada. Tbe history on
this subject is the history of unlawful
enterprises originating in Amencs
and with American citizens. Ameri
can privateers have from time to time
harassed Kogland, Spain, Portugal,
Mexico, Central America, Cuba, and
fart 4 considers the various com
plaints made of trslllc made of muni
tions of war with the South, blockade
running hy British shipping, &c.
Part ft gives a history cf the
cruisers Simpler unJ Nashville, and
complains ot being required to meet
demands m regard to which the sole
difficulty is to treat them as serious.
Part b gives an account of the
Florida and Alabama, with the details
of their escape. It seeks to show
that the lime which elapsed between
Mr. Adams' application and the
Alabama's departure was too short to
justify the charge of negligence, and
claims that in tb s respect Kogland
can not ba charged with any failure
Part 7 ia devoted to a history of
tun anenendoati and Georgia.
Part 8 relates to other vessels, and
repudiates the responsibility of Great
II n tain for their depredations.
Part 9 treats of the reoeplion of
rebel cruisers in British ports, and
seeks to defend the conduct of Great
Britain by comparing it with that of
Part 10, after recapitulating the
facts and arguments of the previous
parts, declares the claims for interest
on damages awarded from July 1,
1304, untenable. The losses which
the arbitrators msy take into account
are, at tbe utmost, those directly
art.-ing from the capture and destruc
tion or ships and property.

Fernando Wood, of New York has

RAILWAY MATTERS. Lake Erie & Louisville.
A large meeting was held at the
Court House last Manday evening,
in the interest ot this road, which was
addreseel bv Hon. Cans.' tester,
C. S. Brice Esq., and others. The
report of the committee showed that
135,000 of tbe $50,000 stock- allotted
toFindlay had been taken a little
over 17,000 of which had been sub
scribed upon condition that the entire
quota of $50,000 should be raised.
After some discussion, the Commit
tee assured Messrs. Foster and Brice
that the remainder of Findlay's quota
would be forthcoming. We learn
also that subscriptions are progress
ing favorably on other parts of the
line, between here and Lima. The
company are prepared to go on with
the work as soon us the subscriptions
are raised, and are anxious for the
completion oi tbe wotk. The Lima
Gazette of last week ssys that the
completion of this, road would save
$25, 000 annually, in freight, to that
city, and urges the people to take
held of the matter at ence and ener
getically. There was a meeting at
that place lait Wednesday evening,
but e have not learned the result
of it A meeting of the Committee
was held Tuesday morning, and the
territory to be canvassed assigned to
tbe different members of the commit
tee. There is a fixed determination
to raise the amount necessary to fill
Find lay's quits for tl-e completion of
this road, and it will be done While
we mutt not lose sight ot tha Toledo
and Columbus lilt,ewiiee the
road fairly under way before we em

can give no more or better aid to the
Toledo & Columbus project than to

for untill that is placed on a sure
road to success, there is no hope for
success ia any other direction.

gathering. He stated that tbe Col

in the Road, bad even greater inter

of Perry and Hancock counties, for
which tbey were seeking the most

as such, would not undertake tbe
work, those owning most of the stock
in it were settled npon tbe purpose
to push through tbe line to Toledo,
