the noutn was demamm by every
consideration of Dublic safety, of grat

In all the loyal States properly belongs
to tho peoplo of those States.
Third That wo denounce all forms
of repudiation as a national crime and
national honor requires the payment
of public indebtedness in the utmost
good faith to all creditors at home and
abroad, not only according to the let
ter but the spirit of tbe laws under
which it was contracted. ,
Fourth It is due to the Ikuorof the
nation that taxation uhoukt "be equal
ized aiid reduced as rapidly as the na
tional faith will permit.
Fifth The national debt, contract
ed as it has been, for the preservation
of the Union for all time to come,
should be extended over a fair period
for redemption ; and it is the duty of
Congress to reduce the rate of interest
thereorvwhenever it can honestly be
Sixth That the best policy to di
minish our burden of debt is to so im
prove our credit that capitalists will
seek to loan us money at lower rates
of interest than we now pay and must
continue to pay as long as repudia
tion, partial or total, open or covert,
is threatened or suspected.
Seventh The government or the
United States should be administered
with the strictest economy the cor
ruptions which have been so shame
fully nursed and fostered by Andrew
Johnson call loudly forradical reform.
Eigth We profoundly deplore the
untimely and tragic death of Abra
ham Lincoln, and regret the accession
of Andrew Johnson to the Presidency,
who has acted treacherously to the
eople who elected him, and the cause
le was pledged to support, usurped
highlegislativeand Judicial mnctlons,
has refused to execute the laws, has
used his hiirh ofllce to induce other
officers to ignore and violate the laws,
has employed his executive powers to
render insecure the property, peace,
liberty, and life of tho citizens; has
abused the pardoning power ; has de
nounced the national legislature as
unconstitutional ; has persistently re
sisted by every measure in his power
every proper attempt at the recon
struction of tho States lately in rebel
lion ; has perverted the public patron
age Into an engino of wholesale cor
ruption ; and has been justly im
peached for nigu crimes ana misae
meailnrs, and properly pronounced
guilty thereof by the votes of thlrty-
Ninth The doctrine of great Brit
ain and other European powers, that
because a man is once a sunject lie is
always so, must be resisted at every
hazard as a relic or tne rcuaai times,
not authorized by the law of nations,
and at war with our national honor
and independence. Naturalized citi
zens ought to be protected in all their
rights of citizenship, as though they
were native born, and no citizen of
the United States, native or natural
ized, must be Hume to arrest and im
prisonment by any foreign power for
acts dono or words spoken in this
country, and if so arrested and im
prisoned, it is the duty of the govern
ment to interfere In his behalf.
Tenth Of nil who were faithful in
the trials of the late war, there were
none entitled to more especial honor
than the brave soldiers ana seamen
who endured the hardships of the
campaign and cruise, and imperiled
their lives in the service of tho coun
try. The iHHinties and pensions pro
vided by law for those brave defend

AN EXCITIXG SCENE.
A temperance meeting; some years
churxh, where the speakers were,
r j 'j i i. '
ago was to be held one evening in
as uhuhi, to oe remruieu uruiiKni.
An estimable woman, whom we will
call Alice, was Induced to attend.
When the meeting was somewhat

affected, and then added in a final
vice, "something must be said of my

"Your speaker once stood among
the respected members of the bar.
Pnay, more than that, ho occupied a
ill vullglvm nil I yj vl'.ip&mnmi.'ll-
al periods. And more than that," he
continued, his voice sinking Into a
tono expressive of deep emotion, "he1
once had a tenderly loved wife and
two sweet children, liut an these
blessings, have departed from him.
He was unworthy to retain them: his
constituents threw him off because he
had debased himself and disgraced
them. And more than all, she who
had loved him devotedly, the mother
of his two balics, was forced to
abandon him and seek an asylum in
in her father's house. And why?
Could I become so changed In so few
short years ? What power was there
to sodeoase me tnat my leiiow-oeings
spurned, and even the wife of my
bosom turned away, neart-stricKeu
from me ? Alas, my friends, it was a
mad Indulgence in intoxicating
drinks. ItuI for this, I were an hon
orable and useful representative In the
hall of legislatioii, and blessed with
home and wife and children.
"liut I have not told you all. After
my wife was separated from me, 1
I sank rapidly. A state of sobriety

I drunk more deeply, and was rarely,
if ever, free from the bewildering ef
fects or partial intoxication. At last
I became so abandoned that my wife,
urged by her friends, no doubt, filed
an application for a divorce, and as
cause could be readily shown why it
should lie granted, a separation was

nemoctatlc Overtiirea to Chief JosJ
So for as known the first positive
declaration of Chief Justlce Chase in
this mutter was on Thursday of last
week to acmmttteo from a Demo
cratic organisation in Philadelphia.
The committee consisted of John
Wclinh, last candidate against Judge
Kelley, and Assessor Fouler, a for
mer Republican, who went into the
Philadelphia convention, subsequent
ly swinging around the circle with
Johnson, and hus sine acted with
the Democrats. They arrived In the
city Wednesday, and next day ob
tained nn Interview with Mr. Chase,
when Frazler said :
'Mr. Chief Justice: Wo have
called umm you as members of the
use of your name as People's Conscr
yative candidate lor tho Presdency.
Wo believe, sir, that tho mass of
the American people are now looking
to you as the man who Is to lead us
out of the great difficulties we are
now In. I he American peoplo are
now Instinctively turning to you that
you may lead them to pence and pros
perity. We believe, Mfv Chief-Justice,
that with you as standard-bearer
of all the people now In opposition to
the radically revolutionary meastrres
of the Republican party, weean sweep
tbe country from ocean to ocean.
We hope, sir, you will give this mat
ter your favorable consideration, and
will soon como to see that you can
serve your country much more effi
ciently as President of tho United
States than in the office you now fill
wiin so much anility"
JUDGE CHASE'S REPLY.
To this the Chief-Justice replied
substantially as follows:
Gentlemen: I am personally
gratified to mcetyou and make your
iicuuiuniHiice. ior am i less grati
fied for the kind feeling you express
for me; but I must franklv say to
you, my position as Chief Justice of
the Supreme Court, forbids my onto'r
iuginto politics, and I am thus de
barred, and very properly so, from
mingling in the politics of the day.
But, Chief Justice as I nm, I fuel' I
am the servant of the people, aud
should they call me to preside for
four years over the destiny of our
country I would feel it my duty to
comply. Understand mo, I am no
candidate for the office an office that
at best, is anything but agreeable,
and one that, al present, is vexatious
THE COMMITTEE URGENT.
To this the Committee replied:
"But Mr. Chief Justice; although you
are not a candidate tor tne presidency.
and are doubtless averse to assuming
so great a responsibility, yet; air, if
the people turn to you, as they cer
tainly will, as their deliverer, do you
not fool that It would bo your duty to
help them? What we now want Is
peace and prosperity, a complete and
permanent reconstruction of the
South ; for) until we have the South
restored, wo can havo no peace un
til we have accomplished a complete
restoration of the States of the South,
the business interests of the country
will continue disorganized, and finan
cial ruin will soouer or later be our
The Chief Justice replied briefly
tnat he was in tne nanus or tne pco
pic, and although not desiring tho
i resiliency, yet. n me peonio cauen
him to serve them in u higher and
more arduous sphere, ho would doubt
less comply, lie felt, perhaps no
man more keenly, the deplorable con
dition of our country and if there was
anythiilg he could do to restore con
fidence to having peace witli all its
blessings and calm tho passions of
the peoplo, that lie would n-eely do.
The Chicago Timet, which took
this affair under Its direction from the
beginning, thus notices Its closing
scenes. It says:
"From opening to close, it has lsnen
emphatically u tamo aflitfr. It hus
failed to elicit any cordial response
from tho popular heart. Like the Hc
oidciitul hero placed in nomination
for an otllce for which ho is unfit by
nuture, by education, by experience,
and by lack of brains, it has been a
cold, dull, lifeless, upathctlo, strHid
expn-ssion of tin? begat ive side of hu
man nature. Tho heart of tho people'
is not In it.
"When it was announced that Gen
eral Grant had U-en unanimously
nominated as tho Republican candi
date for tho Presidency, perhaps
about a hhtidnd voicen raised three
cheers, but not more than that num
ber. Perceiving that tho announce
ment fell upon very passionless and
undemonstrative individuals, the Dr.
made a short speech, and woundup
by proposing three cheers for the 'Ga
lena Tanner,' which were given with
but little more rim than tho proceed
ing rounds. Satisfied, however, w 1th
his work, tlie Doctor stepped back a
pace from his stand, took afresh look
at tho audii-no, and said, 'Green
hides Is liz.' "
Thf. New York Jfrraltt, which has
olways been friendly to General
Grant, and which first nominated
him for President, now says:
"Tho Washington correspondents
