The resolution of the convention on

and of great importance. The condition
of the Southern States attracts the atten

The robbers, from the various descrip

descriptions go, had any beard. They
were niodaratcly well dressed, chiefly in
jeans and stout country clothes, and
nearly all wore high cavalry boot with
the pants tucked in. Several had on
spurs. They made no t flort at disguis
ing their voices, but talked almost con
tinuously. To the people on the
train It seemed as if there were
a dozen in and along the train
and as many more on the banks shouting
and shooting. The trail, however, shows
a party of less than twelve. Tho train
was held just an hour and ten minutes.
As the robbers drew off they called at

short distance away and rode to the south.
As free as the robbers were in their speech
while about the train, it w hs noticed that
none of them called each other bv name.

Gentleukn : In reply to youroflleiul
communication ot Juno 17, by which I
am informed of my nomination for the
olllce of President of the United Suites,
by the republican National Convention
at Cincinnati, I accent me nomination
with eratitude. hojunir that under rrovi
dence 1 shall be able, it elected, to exe
cute tiie duties of the high office as a
trust tor the beuetit of all the people. I
do not deem it necessary to enter upon
any extended examination ol the declara
tion ol principles made uy the i onveu-
tion. The resolutious are in accord with
my views, and 1 heartily concur in the
principles they announce. In several ot
the resolutions, nowever, tjuesnons are
considered which are ol such importance
that I deem it proper to Dnetiy express
my convictions in regard to them.
The fifth resolution adopted by the
convention is or paramount interest
More than forty years ago a system of
makinff appointments to olllce grew up,
based upon the maxim "to the victors
belonir the trolls." The old rule, the
true rule, that honesty, capacity and tidel
ity constitute the only real qualifications
forotlke. and that there is no other
claim, gave place to the idea that party
services were to be chiefly considered.
All parties in practice have adopted this
system. It has been essentially modi
fied siuce 1U first introduction ; It has
not. however, been improved. At nmt
the president, either direclly or through
the heads oi ucpartmenis, niaae an ine
appointments, out gradually the ap
pointing power in many cases passeu m
to the control oi memoers oi cuuiiress
The offices in these cases have become
not merely rewards to party leaders
This system'destroys the independence
of the separate departments of
the government. It tends directly to ex
travagance and omciai incapacity, it is
a temptation to dibhonesty. It hinders
and impairs that careful suervisiou and
strict accountability oy whim aioue laitn
lul aud efficient public servloa can be se
cured, it obstructs the prompt removal
and sure puulshmeiit of the uu worthy in
every way. it degrades the civil service
and me character oi tiie government, it
is felt, I am conndeut, by a large major
ity of the members ot congress, to be an
intolerable burden and unwarrantable
hindrance to the proper discharge of their
legitimate uuties. ji ought to vi abol
ished. The reform should be thorough,
radical and complete. Ve should return
to the principles aua practice ol tne found
ers or the government, supplying py leg
laUiiion wiien neeueu luai wiucu was
formerly established by custom. They
neither expecteu or derived irom the pub
lic offices any partisan service. They
meant that public officers should owe this
whole service to the government and to
the people ; they meant that the officer
should be secure lu his tenure as long as
lils personal character remained untar
nished and the performance of his duties
satisfactory. It elected, I shall conduct
the administration ol the government
upon these principles, and all constitu
tional powers vested in tho executive will
be employed to establish this reform
The declaration ol principles by the Cin
clnnati convention makes ua amendment
in lavor or a singlu presidential term. J
do not assume lo add to that declaration.
bnt belieylDg that the restoration ot the
civil servloa to tho system established

presidents, can be best accomplished

the' people are habitually disregarded.
A division ot political parties resting
merely upon distinctions of race, or upou
sectional lines, is always unfortunate and
may be disastrous. The welfare of the
South, alike with that of any other part
ol the country depends on the attractions
it can offer to'labor, to immigration and
to capital; but laborers will not go and
capital will not be ventured where the
constitution and the laws are set at defi
ance, and destruction, apprehension and
alarm take the place of peace-loving and
law-abiding social lite. All parts of the
constitution are sacred and must be sa
credly observed the parts that are new
no les than the parts that are old. The
moral nnd material prosperity ot the
Southern States can be iftost
effectually advanced by hearty and
crenerous recognition of the
rights oi an oy an a recognition wuu-
out reserve or exception. With such a
recognition lully accorded, it win oe
practicable to piomote, by the influeuce
of all the legitimate agencies of the gen
eral government the efforts of the people
of those States to obtain for themselves
the blessings ot honest and capable local
government. If elected. I shall consider

When this address was issued the cry
went up in the whole country, that
means Bristow or Tilden! In the con
ference itself Adams said: First Btis

received with loud applause.
True to tliis prosrramine, and not ac
customed to change our course without
good reason, we hoist (without the inten
tion ot dictating to others and without
bitterness) the lla of "Tilden," whose

cials at once set about organizing for
pursuit. The sheriff of Pettis county
started out with a party before morning.
General Bacon Montgomary and a select
party took a special train at Sedalia a.:d
came down to Otterville and started in
pursuit. A message from Montgomery
reached the general offices on the Mis
souri Pacific railroad company yesterday
about uoon. It was to the effect that he
had struck the trail at Florence, ten
miles below Otterville. The robbers,
eight in number, bad gallojw-d through
Florence at 2 o'clock .in the morning,
going south. Montgomery followed the
trail, sending back word. to have fre.h
horses for his party at Warsaw, on the
Osage river. The railroad company also
started out parties from Clinton on the
Missouri, Kansas and Texas road, and
from Lebanon, on the Atlantic and Pa-
ciuc. lids programme put tin- pur
suers in the jKisition of converging from
three points with the robbers somew here
near the center and going south. By
good riding the robbers should have
reached the broken mountainous coun
try around Monegaw .springs last iiigm,
and, If this is the case, the pursuit w ill
have to Iks changed into a long and
dangerous scout in the brinli. witli poor
chances of success. Montgomery and
the Lebanon party are ex jM-etcd to form
a junction somewhere near Butlalo to-day,
in case they do not fall in with the rob
bers before that.

A tuile awty Irom the cut, at Lamine

him. lie lad been forced to join them,
taking big lantern in hand.
At the lower end of the cut they sta.
tioned the watchman, aud behind him
they piled heaps of ties. As the train
came Inside down the cut, they loosened
the watchman's arms, Ftationed them
selves on the hides of the cut, and bade
him signal a halt. Kesponsive to the
waving light, the engineer w histled dow n
brakes. With momentum largely over
come the engine struck the obstructions,
climbed upon the ties a foot or uiore.then
