TO THE EPITOB OF THE ENQUIIIKB:
In your next weekly issue
please answer the..' following
questions: ' '. . ! :
1. What is the differnce be
tween, amnesty , as advocated
by the Cincinnati Convention,
and amnesty as advocated, by
the Convention'' at Philadel
phia?' . '; '"
2.. In What instance has Gen
oral Grant been influenced in
the appointment of persons to
persons' to cflice. under'' the
Go vemuient by th'6 rec'e'iptllof
!"'...' i i ...i.
unufs or presenisr or-1 wnom
has he appointed to office that
have. given him presents? -
3. How many relations' has
he occupying lucrative posi
tions under the Government?
4 In what instance has Gener
al Grant been supp osed to con
nive at frand or corruption,
autside of the present-taking
and nepotism? .'
We are nearly all Greeley
men here.. ; "Old Honesty" . is
the coining man. Let us hear
from you in the next issue.
To the first question of our
correspondent we reply that
the amnesty of the Cincinati
Convention is universal am
nesty, while that of the Phila
delphi Convention is only an
approval of the action of Con
gress on that subject,' which
except several hundred per-
sous from amuesty; and they
the leading men in the South.
2. To the next ciuerv we re
ply General Grant appointed
Mr. Fish Secretary of State.
Mr. Stewart Secretary of the
Treasury, Mr. Borie, Secretary
pi tne navy, Mr. Uoar Attor-ney-GenSral,
Mr. Murphy Col-
1 i. -.. .BUT - XT I 1 nr
icuior or JM ew xorK, ana lui .
lirinnell Colleotor at that port
before Murphy; all of whom
naa been liberal subscribers to
brant funds. These are the
principal cases that now occur
to us, but there are other mi
nor appointments whose names
we do not at present recall.
8, To the third query, we
respond that Grant's brother,
in-law, Corbin, was in the cele
brated gold speculation of Jim
Fisk and others, in September,
1869, and professed to his col
leagues to represent Grant.
That the speculation could not
be carried out unless the Gov
ernment gave the conspirators
assurance that it would not
sell the one huncrec millions
of golcl in the Treasury, and
that Grant did crlve that as
surance in a public letter ad
T .11 .
vising uoutweil not to sell,
which letter wa9 published.
Fisk, Gould & Co. always
maintained that Crraot' was a
partner Then we have ',' his
San Domincra Oornar-lnfc atwn.
ftti' ftnflll Shecft iandstone

4. We are asked how many
relations he has appointed to
office. Taking all the branch
es of the family there . are' no
less than forty, : -
. Every paper brings . to us
the most gratifying news! ; The
grand uprising extends all over
the land. The signs' in this
Congressional District are very
favorable. The Grantites and
Bundyites are alarmed. Won
der it the Gift-taker, at present
at Long Branch.thinks there is
any rain in me iinciuiiau
cloud now? " North Carolina,
has been heard from.
T hose who prefer truth to
deceit, and who wish to . see
the hot-beds of corruption
at Washington City thorough
ly purified, will vote for Gree
ley for President, and for Nash

Col. T. P. Spencer, Cleveland, Ohio:
My Dear Sir: -I assure
you that it is not for want i of
.respect that I have not written
tc you sooner. Your letter of
May 18th was duly received,
but as you did not ask for a
reply, Ithought that you would
not feel hurt at my si
lence. I should have written
to you, however, but for .the
fo)loincopsideration : I have

chance of success in the elec
tion next fall,- the movement
indicating the policy aud the
man must come from the peo
ple, and not from the politi
cians; and especially, that the
Democratic members of Con
gress should abstain from en
tering into any coalition, and
from everything that might
look like dictating the course
of the party. And this was
the view generally taken by
the members. Individually,'!
preferred fighting under the
Democratic banner, with a
straight Democratic ticket :
but I could not shut my eyes
to the fact that a great many
good Democrats were of a dif
ferent opinion. And to me.it
seemed clear that any course
that did not emanate from the
masses of the party, would sure
ly fail. Acting on this princi
ple,"!'! 'have " not. answered a
single one of the ,many letters
that I have received upon the
subject. Not that I was un
willing to express my opinions,
or to take my share of the re
sponsibility ; but because, od-
enpying the position that I do,
i inougnc it tne pan ui wiauom
and patriotism not to interfere

opinion that could be barely
followed by the opponents of
the Radical party. I condemn
no man who took a different
view of his duty, but I think
that time and events have
shown that mine wa8 ' correct.
The nomination of Greeley and
Brown, by the Baltimore Con
vention, was the "work of the
people". The politicians had
very little or nothing to do
with it. It was a tidal wave
that swallowed up everything
in its way. , The true explana
tion of iY that the people
mean to have a cnange ot Ad
ministration; and they, will
not let pride or. perjudice stand
in the way, of success. Not
that the .Democratic party
abandons its principles; tor it
does nothing of the sort. , On
the contrary alleging as it
truly doe's that the course of
the Radical leaders, in the
White House and in Congress.

ernmentit is bound by its
principles to seek the over
throw of those loaders, And
if it panoQt overthrow them in
precisely tne moae u wouia

to take the next' best mode.
Therefore; although I would
have beeu better pleased had
our party unanimously resolved
to make a straight , Democratic
fight,-1 am now (since the pap
ty has.ao willed it, and believ
ing that the welfare and liberty
of the country require the de
feat of the present administra
tion,) firmly resolved to work
with earnestness and zeal .for
the election of Greeley and
Brown. . What else can a
Democrat do, whoj believes
what he has been saying for
years, that the continuance in
power of Grant and the Rad
ical majority in Congress would
endanger the very existence of
What if Greeley has opposed
the Democratic party is it not
better to elect a man who ' has
frankly and openly opposed us
in times past, but who now, in
many things, agrees with us,
than to elect a renegade Dem
ocrat like Grant, who was once
with us, but is now opposed to
us in everything? We have to
choose between those two men,
or throw, away our franchise
by refusing to vote. But who
is there willing . to throw - his
franchise away? ! . Who is there
who places so little value upon
it that he wjll not exercise it?
Who is there . ready to ac
knowledge that he is so weak .
that he can not make up his
mind, and therefore will not
vote at all? " I trust that no
Democrat will be found in any
such category. , Let every man
who hesitates to reflect that
any c!(mng.6f - administration
s likely to. be for the-.t better :
and that it certainly can't be
for the worse.
I am yourl friend truly,
A. G. THURMAN.

the habitual abnegation of the

by President Grant, in favor of
the sensual pleasures of ,'the

"'" The truth is Gen. Grant nev

as a trust. He has never con
