A New Small-Pox Theory.
A German physician has
lately started the theory that
the tearful disease known as

excess or aiuuimnous maicer iu
the blood, and that this is to

tration of common Bait. The
habits of children in indnlcing

considers one great cause or

for tho promotion of personal

to the detriment of thopublio in

of partisan nnd personal influ

and lucrative offices mon who had

Ho has shown himself deplorably

0S8tiry investigations nnd. indis
pensable reforms, prctendim; that
no serious -fault could be found
with tho present administration
of public affairs, thus . socking to
blind the eyes ot tlio peoplo.
They havo kept alive tlio -passions
nnd iTsontmoiits of tho

their own advantage They liavo
resorted to arbitrary rnousures
and direct conflict with tho or
ganic law, instead of appealing
to tho bettor instincts nnd Intent
patriotism of tho Southern pooplo
by restoring tothein thoso rights,
tho enjoyment of which is indis
ponsablo for a successful ndmin
istration of their local affairs, and
would tend to rcstoro n patriotic

graded themselves and tho namo

to the confidence uf tlio nationl
by a baso sycophancy to tho dis
penser of Exectitivo power and
patronage unworthy of Republi
can freemen. They havo sought
to silonco tho voico of just criti

discipline; thoy nro striving to
maintain themselves in authority
for scflsh ends by an unscrupu
lous, uso of tho power which
rightfully belongs to tho pcoplo,
and should bo employed only in

Believing thnt no organization thus

to make an indopondont appeal,
to tho sober judgment, conscionco
and patriotism of tho American
Ye, the Liberal Republicans of the
United States, in National Conven
Hon assembled at Cincinnati, pro
claim the following principles as
essential to just government :
1. We rocognizo tho equality of
all boforo tho law, and hold that it
is the duly of Government, in its
doalinzs with th6 pooplo to moto
out equal and exact justice to all of
wuntever nativity, rucu, cuiur ur
persuasion, religious or political.
2. We plodgo ourselves to main
tain tho Union of tho Statos, eman
cipation and enfranchisement, and
oppose any roopeuing of tho ques
tions sottlod by tho Thirtoonth,
Fourtoonth and Fiftoonth Auaond
monts of tho CoriBtitution.
3. We domand .immediate: and
and absolulo removal of nil disabil

than nntf centralized power. Tho
publio wolfaro roquiros tho eupronv
ncv of tho civil over tho military au
thority, and thofreodom of person
under tho protection of tlio habeas

with the public drder, for tho State
self-government, and for thoNation

tho constitutional limitations of

ernment has become & moro instru
ment of partisan tyranny and per
sonal ambition, and an pbjoct of
selfish greod. It n a scandal and
reproach upon free Institutions, and
breeds a demoralization dangerous
to the prosperity .of .Republican
6. Wo thcreforo regard a :thor
ough roform of tho civil Borvico ns
one of tho most prossing necessities
of tho hour; that honesty, capacitv
and fidelity constitute the only val
id claims; to publio omptovm'ont:
that the offices of. tho Government

favoritism and patronago, and that
publio Btations become ajmin a post
or honor. To this end it is impera
tively required that no Trosidcnt
shall bo a candidato for ro-oloction.
7. Wo demand a system of Federal taxation
which shall not unnecessarily Interfere with the
industry of tho pcoplo, and shall provido sulll
clent means to pny tho expenses of the Govern
ment, economically administered, pensions, and
the interest on the public debt, nnd a inwiornto
annual reduction of tho principal thoroof; but
rucognl.ing tho existence iu our midst of hon
est but Irreconcilable differences of opinion up
on tho merits of tho respective systems of pro
lection and frco trade, wo remit tho discussion
of the subject to tho pcoplo hi tholr Congress

thereon, wholly frco from Executivo interfer

8. The public, credit must be sacredly main
tained, nnd wo denounce ropiuliuiiou iu every
form and guiso.
9. A speedy return to specio payment Is le-
niuuded alike liy tlio highest considerations Of
commercial morality and honejl government.
10. Wo remember with gratitude, tho heroism
nnd sacrifices of tho soldiers and sailors of tho
liepublic, and no act of ours shall ever detract
from their Justly earned fame or tho full rewards
of their pat riotisin.
11. We aro opposed to nil further grants of

public domain should bo held sacred to actual

Two of Edward S. Stokes'
Counsel Positively Withdrawn
from His Defence.
' When Stokes was arrested
for the murder of James Fisk
J r., he prepared himself for
trial by engaging the leagal
services of Messrs. John Grit
ham, Elbridge. T. Gerry and
William 0. Bartlett. Theso
gentlmen , in undertaking tho
defence of Stokes, began by
interrogating their client in the
most searching manner. What
ever , statement the . prisoner
may have ina'do to hi3 counsel,
they, of course, kept to them
sel ves,- and at the same timet
took the precaution to enforce
silence upon their client by,
threatenittg- to " abandon his
case if the seal of secrecy was
During the preliminary pro
ceedings before the grand jury
and their trial, Stokes frequent
ly manifested a desire to make
a statement, but his fear of los
ing the counso who were de
fending him kept him silent.
Yet he was not satisfied, and
became more and more restless
in his cell. He complaiued of
the rigor of his confinement
the manner his case was being
treated by the public journals,
and at length broke silence by
making the rambling appeal to
the public, which was publish
ed iu last Monday's Times.
This appeal being made, as he)
stated it was, wholly without
ihe knowledge of his counsel,
has cost him their services, for
both Mr. Graham and Mr.
Gerry have abandoned his de
feuce. It is also understood
that Win. O. Bartlett has fol
lowed tlie example of his asso-'
ciates. It will thus be seen
that Stokes has done himself a, .
great injury, for it was the tab
cnt and experience of the leads
ing . counsel that formed the
hopes of his friends. Had
those gentlemen" continued in
the case, Stokes would have
enjoyed every facility and dc
lay that the law permitted, for
they had so far proved eminent'
ly successful in the line adopt
ed by them.
It is understood that the
prisoner is much dejected by
the action of his counsel, and
the fact of their withdrawal
from his defence was the topic
of much discussion in the courts
and other places yesterday.
Indeed, it seemed to be tho

mittee of the House has decid
ed that tho cost of the public
buildings to be erected at Cin
cinnati must not cost to ex
ceed two millions. The de
sign for the Government build

pleted, and is considered at the
architect' office to be tho
finest ever produced there.
As 60on as Mr. Greeley
heard that he was nominated
at Cincinnati he wrote an edi
toral and headed it: "On to

"to the manner born," got hold
of it, and translated the caption
thus : "Old clothes wont stand

dent was so disgusted that ho
suppressed the article, and de
cided to write a letter accept
