changes which had occurred without
recording the States in which they

yes, and therefore he was nominated

The Liberal Republican.
The Liberal Republican Conveu
tion which met at Cincinnati laei
week, adopted the following resolu
tions by acclamation :
We, the Liberal Republicans of the
United States, in National Conven
tion assembled, at Cincinnati, pro
claim the following principles as es
sential to lust government :
1st. We recognize the equality oi
all men before tne law, and bold
that it is the duty of the government,
in its dealings witn tt e people, to
mete out equal and exact justice to
all, of whatever nativity, race, color
or persuasion, religious or political
2d. We pledge ourselves to main
tain the Union of these States, the
emancipation and enfranchisement,
and to oppose any re-opening of the
questions settled by the thirteenth,
fourteenth and nflecntn amend
meats of the Constitution.
3d. We demand the, immediate and
absolute removal of all disabilities
iiujjubcu via attvuui Ul lUU ICUClUUUj
which was finally subdued several
tears ago, believing mat universal
amnesty will result in a complete
pacification in all sections ot thj
4tb. Local self-government, with
impartial suffrage, will guard the
rights of ail citizens more securely
than any centralized power. The
people, the public welfare requires
the supremacy of the civil over the
military authority, and the freedom
f persons under the protection of
ihe habeas corpus. We demand for
the individual the largest Mberty
onsistent with public order; for the
state self-government, and for the
i.ation a return to the methods of
peace and the constitutional limita
tion of power.
5th. The civil service of the Gov
ernment has become a mere instru
ment of partisan tyranny and person
h1 ambition, and an object of selfish
reed. 1 1 is a scandal and a reproach
upon free institutions, and breeds a
lemoralization dang rous to the per
petuity of republican government
Cth. We therefore regard a thor
ough reform of tbe civil service as
one of the most pressing necessities
of the hour; that bonesty and fideli
ly constitute the only valid claims to
public employment; that the offices
of tbe Government cease to be a mat
ter af arbitrary favoritism and pat
ronage; and that public station
should become again a post of honor,
To this end it is imperatively requir
ed that no President shall be a candi
date for re-election.
7th. We demand a system of Fed
eral taxation which shall not unne
cessarily interfere with the industry
of the people, and which shll pro
vide the means necessary to pay the
expenses of the uoverrnient econom
ically administered, the pensions, the
interest on tne public deDt, and a
moderate annual reduction of the
principal thereof. And recognizing
that there are in our midst honest but
irreconcilable differences of opinion
with regard to the respective sys
tems of protection and free trade, we
remit the discussion of the subject to
the people in their Congressional
Districts, aud the decision cf Con
ress thereon, wholly free of Execu
tive interference or dictation.
8th. The public credit must be sa
credly maintained, and we denounce
repudiation in every form and guise.
yth. A speedy return to specie pay
ments is demanded alike by the
highest considerations of commercial
morality and houest Government,
10th. We remember with gratitude
the heroism and sacrifices of the sol
diers and sailors of the republic, and
no act of ours shall ever detract from
thoir justly earned fame, or tho full
rewards of their patriotism.
11th. We are opposed to all fur
ther grants of lands to railroads and
other corporations. The public do
main should be held sacred to actual
12th. We bold that it is the duty
ofthe Government in its intercourse
to cultivate friendship and peace by
treating with all on lair and equal
terms, regarding it ante dishonors
ble either to demand what is not
right or to submit to what is wrong,
13th. For tbe protection and suc
cess of these vital principles, and the
support of the candidates nominated
by this convention, we invite and
cordially welcome the co-operation
of all patriotic citizens without re
gard to previous political affiliations.
ADDRESS TO TUE AMERICAN TEOrLE.
The following address f o the Amer
ican people, submitted by the Com
mittee on Resolutions, was adopted
The Administration now in power
has rendered itself guilty of a wan
ton disregard of the laws of the land,
aud of powers not granted by the
Constitution. It has acted as if tbe
laws had a binding force ouly for
those who are governed, and not for
those who govern. It has struck a
blow at the fundamental principles
of constitutional government, and
the liberties of the citizen. The
President of tbe United States has
openly used the powers and appoint
ments of his high office, for the pro
motion of personal ends, lie has
kept notoriously corrupt and un
worthy men in places of power and
responsibility, to the detriment of
tho public interest. He uses the
public service of the Government as
a machinery of partisan aud personal
influence, and interferes with techni
cal arrogance in the political affairs
of States and municipalities, he has
rewarded with influential and lucra
tive offices, men who had acquired
his favor by presents, thus st nutat
ing the demoralization of our politi
cal life by his conspicuous example.
He has shown himself deplorably
unequal to the tasks imposed upon
him by the necessities of the country,
and culpably careless of the respon
sibilities of his high office.
The partisans of the Administra
tion assuming to be the Republican
party, and controling its organiza-
tion have attempted to justify such
wrongs and palliate sucb anuses, to
tha end of maintaining a partisan
ascendency. They have stood in the
way of necessary Investigations and
indispensable reform of serious
faults which could be found within
the present Administration of public
affairs, thus seeking to blind the eyes
of the people, ihey have kept alive
the passions and resentments oi tne
late civil war. to use them for weir
own advantage. They have resorted
to arbitrary measures in direct con
flict with the organic law. instead of
appealing to the better instincts and
latent patriotism or the soumern
oeople bv restoring to tnem mose
rights, the eniovment of which is in
dispensable for a successful adminis
tration of their local affairs, and
would tend to move a patr otic and
honefnl national feelinsr. They have
uiue-ht to silence the voice of just
criticism, to stifle the moral sense of
the people, and subjugate puouc
opinion by tyrannical party discip
line. They are striving w maintain
themselves in authority for selnsn
ends, by an unscrupulous use of the
power which ngntiuny Deiongs to
the people, and should be employed
onlv in the service of the country.
Believinsr that an organization time
led and controlled can no longer be
ot service to the best interests of the
republic, we have resolved to make
au independent appeal to the sober
judgment, conscience and patriotism
f the American people.
