was a subject of general remark,
even among our political opponents,
last year, that oar County Convention,
in numbers and intelligence of the del
egates oompoeirjg it, had never been
surpassed in the county. To this fact
may be attributed, in a great measure,
the success that crowned our efforts
in the election that followed. In the
coming election we have more impor
tant offioes to fill, as will be seen by
the above call for a Convention ; and
then we have the result to contend
for which shall give us prestige and
strength in the Presidential contest
which follows one month later.
It is needless to enlarge upon the
importance of united, earnest work in
the present campaign. Every thought
ful Republican will comprehend it at
glance, and should prepare to act ac
oordingly. We most not underesti
mate the strength and vigilance of our
opponents. Bound together in this
county by the "cohesive power of pub
lie plunder they will leave no stone
unturned to accomplish their purposes,
The Republicans in every township
should make it a point to attend the
primary meetings, Monday evening,
August 19th, and send a full delega
tion of clear-headed Republicans, who
will select a strong ticket. With such
a ticket the result cannot be doubtful.
Let us see to it, then, that the Con
vention is a foil one. Let every mem
ber of the party work earnestly from
this time until the Convention meets
to bring this about.

a party which has always been on tbe
aide of right, on the eide of freedom,
and free institutions, the party which
destroyed the cause of slavery, the
party which emancipated four millions
of human beings and elevated them
to the rank of citizens, the party
which brought the country safely
through one of the most stupendous
rebellions, ever recorded, the party
which baa been enabled as to gradually
pay off our national debt, and yet at

tbe government shall now pass into

hands of those who attempted to
destroy it for no other reason than
that the people refused longer to
trust them, in their wild schemes.
A party who declared the war for the
restitution of the Unioa, a failure.
The party who sympathises with the
enemies of tbe country, and who now
denounce all laws for the protection

The colored voters were driven
from the polls by some of Greeley's
reformers at Athens. Three of the
negroes were shot, one receiving a
shot in the thigh, producing a serious
wound. Thus is the "bloody chasm''
widened over which the Democracy
propose to "clasp hands."
Such is the sobriquet bestowed up
on the NationalRepublican Democratic
Liberal-DoD y-Vara" en combination
candidate, by all Democratic papers,
from the New York Tribune, "which
is not an organ down to such de
lectable national organs as the Courier.
In just what Horace's superior hon
esty consists, no one has seen proper
to inform the waiting public. It does
seem strange to the readers of news
papers now-a-days, that the transition
from one extreme to the other, in pol
itics, especially, can be so easily made.
No one denies the bitterness with
which Honest Horace has followed the
Democratic party for more than thirty
years, denouncing every public man
and measure it supported, pointing
out with startling emphasis every in
discretion of which the party was
guilty, applying to the members of
that party such pretty names as
"thieves," "liars," "glum," "Copper
heads," "rebels,'' and the like. Now,
if all this vituperation and abuse be
true, how must the Democratic party
the party who boast that for more
than sixty years they had control of
this Government, feel humiliated and
self abased, to now acknowledge that
"Honest Horace' but told the tr"hi,
when he charged upon all the
crimes ltnow'"S civilization. But
ayaMrj"I)emocratio friend, "we have
not changed." If that be true is Hor
ace now honest in asserting that you
have. Was Horace honest when he
asserted that his paper, the Tribune,
would not be "an organ' during this
campaign, when the truth is that to
day the Tribune is more a political
paper, and more the organ of one
party than it ever has been before.
Honest Horace, through the columns
of the Tribune, parades the defalca
tions under the present administration.
Singular is it not, that his long stand
ing honesty, did not prompt his virtu
ous mind to publish that list long ago.
So long as he hoped for influence and
position under the administration, he
carefully concealed these facts, if facts
they be; but now in order to promote
his own ambitious views, he parades
them with a great flourish.
honesty f Any attempt to deceive
the people by this cry of Honest Hor
ace, only excites the contempt of the
American people. Greeley's honesty
is of no treat er dimensions than is
that of thousands of other pubUc men,
whom the Tribune and
denounce as rogues.
1m the New Tork Tribune of Septem
ber 15, 1868, H. G., in commenting
upon the Maine election,and in repre
senting a voter of Maine, said ; "He

The premature jubilation of the
Democracy over their supposed suc
cess in North Carolina is of benefit to
the country in one respect The
Bourbon leaders who so suddenly
changed front for Greeley were con
strained, in the exuberance of their
feelings to blurt out their real de
signs and purposes. The good Dem
ocratic people or the vicinity were
holding a barbecue the other day,
when they received news of a vietory
in North Carolina, where upon such
patriots as Breckenridge, Beck, and
Hodge, spoke out their real sent..
ments. Here is a report of it as taken

They took the ground that the sup
port of Greeley by the Democracy
was simply a matter of expediencey
and policy; that hitherto that party
had been unable of ltselr to triumph
in national affairs, and now the op

to gain possession of the government
They believed the present movement
was certain to enure to the benefit of
the Democratic party. Should Gree

Congress, that was certain to be chos

render his efforts harmless ; and that

WASHINGTON, August 2,1872.
The following letter was handed to
Senator Sumner today :

I . S
Deab Sib : Tour letter published
in the papers of thii morning will cre
ate profound pain and regret among
your former political friends through
out New England. Your power to
injure Gen. Grant was exhausted in
your remarkable speech in the Senate.
Your power to injure yourself was not
fully exercised until you announced an
open alliance with Southern secession
ists in their efforts to destroy the Re
publican party of the Nation.
I nave but recently read with much
interest the circumstantial and minute
account given by you in the fourth
volume of your works of the manner
in which you were struck down in the
senate Chamber in 1856 tor defending
the rights of the negro. The Demo
cratic party throughout the South,
and according to your own showing,
to some extent in the North also, ap
proved that assault upon you. Mr.
Toombs, ot Georgia, openly announc
ed his approval ot it in the senate, and
Jefferson Davis, four months after its
occurrence, wrote a letter to South
Carolina in fulsome eulogy ot Brooks
for having so nearly taken your lite.
It is sale to say every man in the
South who rejoioed over the attempt
to murder you was afterward found in
the rebel army conspiring to murder
the nation. It is still safer to say that
every one of them who survives,

of Horace Greeley. In 1856 he would

with Horace Greeley Involves what I
most desire. With tuth a President
Congress would be changed for the
first time since the war ; the equal
rights of all will have been declared
by the representative at the head of
the government, whose presence
there will be ot higher significance
than that of any victor of war, being
not only testimony, but a constant
motive power in this great cause.
Opposition, whether open hostility or
more subtle treachery, will yield
to the steady influence of such a rep
resentative. Therefore, in looking
to the President, I look also to Con
gress, which will take its character in
a large measure from him. In choos
ing Horace Greeley, we do the best
we can for the whole government.
not only in the executive but in the
legislative branch. While we de
cline to support nepotism, repayment
for personal gifts by official patronage,
seizure of war powers, and indignity
to a black republic, and the various
incapacities exhibited by the Presi
dent and the rings by which he gov
erns, none of which can you defend.
You know well, that the rings are
already condemned by the American
people, for myself, 1 say plainly
and without hesitation, that I prefer
Horace Greeley with any Congress,
possi Me, on the Cincinnati platform,
to President Grant with pretensions
nd his rings, a vote for whom in
volves the support of all his preten
sions, with prolonged power in all the
rings. There must be another in
fluence and another example The
administration in all its parts 1b im
pressed by the President. Let his
soul be enlarged with a sentiment of
justice, quickened by industry, and
not only the two houses of Congress,
but the whole country will feel an
Irresistible authority, over spreading
pervading, permeating everywhere.
Therefore, in proportion as you are
earnest for the rights of the colored
citizens, and place them above all
partisan triumph, you will be glad to
support the candidate whose heart
hag always throbbed for humanity.
The country needs such a motive
power in the White House. It needs
a crenerous fountain there. In one
word, it needs somebody different
from the present incumbent, and no
body knows this better than Speaker

GEN. DIX ON GREELEY.
A Scathing Denunciation.
The Instability of the Democratic.
WESTHAMPTON, July 27.
Dsak Sia : Your letter of the 13th
ima., asking my aid to procure a
speaker lor a Greeley meeting at
Hancock, was sent to me while I was
in New England, and I have been
unable until now to acknowledge its
I do not understand on what
ground you considered yourself au
thorized to adiresa such a request to
me. If you had been familiar with
the course of my public life, and
equally so with Mr. Greeley's, you
could not have supposed me capable
of advocating his election to the of
fice of President of the United States
without imputing to me the utter
abandonment of all political princi
ples. 1 am opposed to Mr. Greeley.
1. Because I believe him to be as
''unstable as water," perpetually
floundering (to carry out the Scrip
tural figure) amid the surges of opin
ion, and dehcient in all requisites es
sential to a firm, steady, and consist
ent administration of the government
li. Because be haa usually been
found amopg the most extreme ul
traista on the great questions ot
political and social duty, which have
been brought under public discussion
during the last quarter of a century.
3. Because he has been the advo
cate (and in this instance persistent
ly) of that most unjust and unequal
commercial system which is destroy
ing our mercantile and shipping in
terests ami heaping up enormous ao-
"imi'la'.ioiis of wealth in the hands
u tlie protected classes to the oppres
biou and impoverishment ot all oth
4. Because he is associated in re
lations more or less intimate, with
some of the chief plunderers of the
city of New York, justly warranting
the apprehension that through this
complicity or his facile disposition,
the same system of fraud atuLjjorrup-

t of this city may t

GRATE BROWN IN NEW HAVEN.
The True Story of His Sickness Told
by One Who was There.
We have kept aloof from the discus
sion concerning Gratz Brown's per
formance during hia recent visit to
New Haven, intending to have some
thing to say on tbe supject when the
proper moment came. The narrative
we publish below contains nothing
which we have not known and, in
deed, our knowledge of it has been
shared by several others-for some
weeks, but we preferred not to give
it to the public till we could present
it in such a shape as must end con
troversy. That it must do so will,
we are sure, be admitted by all candid
readers. At all events uovernor
Brown's friends have now the oppor
tunity they ought to desire, it any of
them are sincere in asserting that his
condition while in New Haven was
auch aa becomes a candidate for a high
and responsible office. W ere ne not
a candidate for office, hia offense
against decency and public morality
miffht be passed over in alienee; be
inr a candidate it ia our duty to let
the people know what manner of man
ia soliciting their votes. Were he
the candidate of the Republican party
we should pursue precisely the same
course only in that event we ahould
also refuse to support mm, ana can
upon bim to resign his candidature.
We may add that probably the on
ly person who will be surprised at
the narrative to which we now invite
their attention, are those who
know leaat of the habits of Gratz
Brown. The name of our informant,
who is aa official at the hotel where
Gov. Brown stayed while in New
Haven, is at the service of any one
who may desire it. He says :
Mr. Brown came to tbe New Ha
yen house last Wepneadsy night,from
his clasa supper, and went to bed.
What time he got up I do not
knows but ha went out, I suppose to
the Yale commencement exercises.
When ha came back from there,
and before he went to the alumni din
ner, he went to hia room and sent
down for some brandy. I sent him
up,before he went away, three drinks
Cbrandy, for which I received pay.
"Vame back after the dinner, and
betwe-Stime when he made his
speech he sent 'SlJfcr three more
glasses of brandy, antflajjpt sure
but more. I know that I soT&Aim
six drinks of brandy, and I think thsV'
I sold him eight, and be paid me for
them. When he came down to the
office, before going to the boat, to
pay hia bill, I saw that he waa very
drunk. He paid hia bill however,
and then turning to the porter said :
"What in has this man done?"
(Here followed a conversation with
tbe porter, which was too vile and
profane to put in print, but which
the clerk can swear to ) A reporter
then stepped up to him, and asksd
him to look over the notes of the
speech and Brown replied, "I don't
care a u-d d-n tor any newspaper,
and other expressions of the same
sort. He then started for the side
door, where a hack was ia waiting
for him. He staggered as he went
along, but finally went away alone.
About fifteen minutea afier he had
gone, Gov. English came down stairs,
and I said, "Governor, Mr. Brown
was rather tight, wasn't he ?' 'Yes,"
replied the uovernor; "somewhat
set up." On being asked to state
again what Mr. Brown's condition
was, the reply waa, "He waa boozy
drunk. To be sure that nothing in
correct was taken down, our inform
ant listened to tbe reading of notes
of what he said as given above, and
responded that th.ey were all correct,
and that he was perfectly willing to
make an affidavit to the statement,

WHAT IT MEANS.
Senator Wilson, in his Indianopolia
uaaww. aawvaa, U aia,v..a,UViaVIW I a.
81ieech, gives the most truthful state.
ment of the meaning of the Greeley
movement. He said : . - -
Why they told us at first it was to
beat Grant- They did not want to
hurt anybody else only "anybody
but Grant !" "any thing to beat Grant!'
was the cry.
MEANING OF THE LIBERAL MOVEMENT.
But, gentleman, they do not mean
to beat Grant only. It means to beat
every Republican who is true to the
organisation. "That's so applause
It means to beat Gov. Morton. It
means to beat your candidate, Mr.
Brown, for the governorship of your I
State. It means to beat the Bepub-
bean party. It means to beat your I
RepubUain member, of Congress ; it '
r a u a -Ua. t ir & of

Indiana, to exterminate it and take
control of your State. That is what
it means. That is what's the matter.

of their own ; no issue cn which U,
dare go before the people, they seek
to destroy public confidence in the
integrity of the Administration by
false charges of corruption. Not
withstanding the incontestable fact
that more than $100,000,000 have
been taken from the annual burthena
of the people, by the Republican
party, since the Administration be
gan, while the national debt has been
reduced a like amount ; notwithstnd
ing that every investigation institut
ed by the opponents of the Adminis
tration haa resulted in exonerating it
from the charges, they have been
iterated and reiterated by reckless
To show the falsity of these charges,
wa propose to give a few statistics
from official sources. In answer to
letter of inquiry from E. H. Derby,
of Boston, the Commissioner of In
ternal Revenue reports that for the
three years from March 3, -1869, to
March 3, 1872, the amount of loss to
the Government in his department
was less than one fiftieth of one per
cent., or less than 82 in 910,000. Ia
the department ot Customs the loss
fiom April 1, 1869, to December 31,
1871, ia to one two-hundredth of one
per cent., a fraction lesa than to in
8100,000.. The Controller of the
Currency gives the ratio of annual
loss to the depositors through the in
solvency of national banks from
June 1. 1869. to June 1, 1872, aa t5
in 8100,000. The United States
Treasurer states that from June 30th,
1860, to January 9th, 1872, there
waa paid into the Treasury a little
more than $55,000,000,000, and that
the loss during these eleven years
waa but a little more than 855,000,
tbe loss being less than $1, in 81,000,.
The loss in collecting and disburs
ing the revenues of the General Gov
ernment than is witnessed in collect
ing disbursing State revenues ; less
than is experienced by large business
firms from the defalcation of collect
