The Liberal Republican Platform.
Greeley's Letter of Acceptance.
By a special request we pub
lish the platform adopted at
the Cincinnati Convention, and
Horace Greeley's letter of . ac
ceptanc of thee nomination of
that Convention: t ' .; - t
We the Liberal Repuhlicans
oflhe United States, ! in Na
tional Convention Assembled
at-' Cinpinnati,' proclainvthe
tol lowing p'l'i ucjpJei iL,iijinual
to just'g'overnnient: ;';
1st. We'recognize the equal
ity of all men before the law,
and hold that it is the duty of
the Government in its dealings
with the people, to mete out
equal and exact justice to all,
of whatever nativity, race, col
or or persuasion, religious or
2d. We pledge ourselves to
maintain the Union of the
State, emancipation aad en
franchisement, and to oppose
any reopening of the questions
settled by the 13th', 14l,h and
15th amendments of the Con
stitution. . 3d. We demand the imme
diate and absolute removal of
all disabilities imposed on ac
count of the rebellion which
was finally subdued seven years
ago, believing that universal
amnesty will result in complete
pacification in all sections of
the country. ,
4th. Local self government
with impartial suffrage will
guard the rights of all citizens
more securely than any central
ized power; the public welfare
requires the supremacy of the
civil over the military author
ity, and the freedom of person
under the 4 protection, f of .the
habeas corpus we4eijiand.for
the individual the largest lib"
erty consistent with public or
der; for the State self-government,
add for the nation a re
turn to the methods of peace
And the constitutional limita
tions of power,
6th. The civil service of the
. 1 i
government nas oecome a mere
instrnment of partisan tyranny
and personal ambition and an
object of selfish greed; it is a
scandal and reproach ftq free
institutions, and breeds l de
moralisation dangerous to the
perpetuity of republican gov
ernment. 6th. We, therefore regard a
thorough reform of the civil
a t . a
service as one ot tne most
pressing necessities of the hour,
that linegty, capacity and
fidelity constitute the only va
d clajffls to public employment;
that tne officers of tne govern
ment cease to be a , matter of
arbitrary favorlM-m and p,
ronage, and that public- Sta
tion become again a post of
honor. To this end it ia im
peratively required ' xjiat ' no
)res;dbn8ha1 b a faqdjdate
or re-pleptj'qn. ; ; ,
fth. The public credit , must
be sacredly, maintained, and
we denounce repudiation in
every form and guise. (
' 8th. A speedy return
specie ;' payment ia nlapded
alike by the 'hipest cpqidera
tioha of cQinraerpial morality
and benest government. t . '
9th. We remember with
gratitude the heroism and Mao
ri flees of the soldiers and sail
ors of the republic, and no ' act
of ours hall eyer 4etWr frefm
their' 'justly' earned "fame or
the full rewards of their patri
otism. ' lOtb. We are op(6sed to all
further grants of lands to rail
roads or other corporations.!
The public d,Pinaifl should" bet
ljel sabred to, actual aettlers.
Uth, We hold that it is the
duty of the government, in its
intercourse with foreign nations
to cuiiivaie ine inenusuip or
peace by treating with a cnl
it alike dipn6rab,Ie either 6
fjemaqd, wha-s' not right or
to submit to whaf la wrong. :
. 12th. For the ' tromotiori
and success of" these vital prin
ciples, and the'siipffort of the
candidates nominated by this
Convention, we invite and cor
dially welcome the co-operation
of all patriotic citizens,'
without regard to previous
political affiliations. ,
MR. GREELEY'S LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE.
NEW YORK, May 20, 1872.
Gentlemen: I have cho
sen not to acknowledge your
letter of the 3d inst., until I
could learn how the work of
'your Convention 'was received
hi all parts of the country, anrj
judge wliethei-Uhat work Was
approved and ratified by .the
mass ot our lelloyv citizens.
Their response has from , day
to day reached me through
telegrams, letters and com
ments of journalists, independ
ent of official patronage and
indifferent to the smiles or
frowns'of power. The' num
ber and character of these un
restrained, unpurchased, unso
licited utterances satisfy me
that the movement' which
found expression at Cincinnati
has received the stamp of pub
lic approval, and has been hail
ed by a majority of our coun
trymen as the harbinger of a
better dny for the Republic.
I do not misinterpret this ap
proval as especially-complimentary
to myself nor even to the
chivalrous and justly esteemed
gentleman with whose name I
thank your convention for as
sociating mine. I receive and
welcome it as a spontaneous
and deserved tribute "to .that
admirable platform of princi
ples wherein your convention
so tersely, so lucidly, so forci
bly set forth the' convictions
which impelled and the purpo
ses which guided its course a
platform which, casting behind
it the wreck and rubbish of
worn out contentions ' and by
gone feuds, embodies, in fit and
few words the needs and aspi
rations of to-day, Though
thousands stand ready to con
demn your every act, hardly a
syllable of criticism or cavil
' n a -
nas aeen aimed at your plat
form, of which the substance
may be fairly epitomized as
First All political ' rights
and franchises whioh have been
acquired through our late
bloody con vulslou must and
shall be guaranteed, maintain
ed, enjoyed andrespected ever-
Second All nolitiesl iMD-hl a

and franchises which have been

that there shall be henceforth
no proscribed class and no dis
franchised caste 'within the
limits of our Union,' whose l ng
estranged people shall re-unite
and fraternize upon the broa,d
base 'of ' nlyertjal'.'. Amnesty
with Impartial Suffrage: "4 That,
subject to our solemn oonstitu
tiqqal obligations to' maintain
the equal rights of all 'citizens,
our policy should aim at , local

Please and will
A VETERAN SUBSCRIBER.
Mr. Greeley as an individu
al has always been in iavor of
a high protective-tariff, in that
particular occupying,., the
ground of the Old-line -'-Demot
crats of Pennsylvania "But as
candidate for .President he
has pledged hims.elf- to carry
out the Cincinnati -and Balti
more Platforms, 'vhicB remand
the whole question of-tiW tar
iff to the people ill"; tbediffer- .
ent Congressional- )istncts.
He says he will sigri ; any bill
on that subject . that Congress
may pass.. UndectheV Consti
tution, all bills for tbe. .."falsing f
of revenue must ' originate in
the House ' of Representatives
so this seems to be but a fair
and constitutional procedure.
Unless the opponents of a 'high
protective tariff have a major- '
ity in Congress they cannot re
peal the present tariff, and if
they have ;sttch a . majority
President Greeley will , co-op
erate with them by signing the
repeal bill. "
2. There is no duty at all on
tea and coffee. They are ad
mitted by a law passed at the.
last session of Congress duty
free. On sugar the duty va-i
ries from one to three cents a
pound according to the grade.
3. This is the difference be-
tween the Cincinnati and Phil
adelphia Platform on the sub
ject of Civil Service reform:)
. We therefore regard a thor
ough reform of the Civil Ser-
view ono uf tlio tuusC pi cas
ing necessities of the hour; that
honesty, capacity and fidelity
constitute the only valid claims
to public emnlovment: that the
offices of the Government cease
to be a matter of arbitrary
favoritism and . patronage,
and that public station be
come again the post of hon

tively reouired that no Presi

under which subordinate posi

considered rewards for mere
party zeal, are fatally demoraL
izing, and we therefore favor a
reform of the system by laws
which shall abolish the evils of
