The Oamiomiai.e $kw Kka' says that
Colonel Crebs may very consistently sup
port tho nominees of tho Cincinnati con
vention, "as lio Is not counted among tho
'straight-out democrats." "Ills old
friends," adds tlio 'Now Era,' "consider
1 him. somowhat unreliable, politically.
'Tho Colonol, then, mny bo counted on to
'lead tho forlorn liopo In this part of tho
state." This is nows to us. V'o have
never heard Colonel Urcbs' uumocrncy
questioned. Ho lias boon, if fault must bo
found with him, too decidedly In favor of
tho novcr-advnnco-a-sten democrncy to
suit us j but, it is probable, that ho now
stands with thoso who hnvo hoped nnd
still hope that out of tho liberal move
ment will como tho regeneration of tho

silly stuff. If ho wcro within tho reach of
our correcting hand, wo should glvo him
such chastisement as ho doervos put
him across our metaphorical kneo and
spank him. Mark this Talmadgcan stuff:
It is astonishing how easy it is for n
good soul to enter heaven. A prominent
business man in rliilndclplilu went homo
one afternoon, lay down on the loungo,
and said, "It is timo for mo to go." Ho
was very aced. His dnimhtor said to
him, "Aroyou sick?" Ho said, "No;
but It is time for mo to no. Havo John

and would tend to rWo a patriotic and

4. LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
with impartial suffrage, will guard tho
rights of all citizens mora securely than
any centralized power. Tho pooplo and
the public welfare require tho SUPRE
MACY OF THE CIVIL OVER THE
MILITARY AUTHORITY and
FREEDOM OF PERSON UNDER
THE PROTECTION OF THE HA
BEAS CORPUS. We demand for the
individual the largest liberty consistent
with public order, for tho stato self-government,
and for the nation n return to
the methods of peaco and tho constitu
tional limitations of power.
"TBCE AS PBEACIIIXU."
C. Tho civil servlco of tho government
has become a mere instrument of partisan
tyranny and personal ambition, and an
object of solfisb greed. It is a scandal
and reproach upon free Institutions, and
breeds a demoralization dangerous to the
perpetuity of republican government.
TBTKBEFOBEA WIME DEMAND,

REFORM OF THE. CIVIL SERVICE
as one ot the most pressing necessities of
the hour; that honesty, capacity and fidel
ity constitute the only valid claims to pub
lic employment; that the offices of the
government cease to bo a matter of arbt
trary favoritism and patronage, and that
public station become again tho post of
honor. TO THIS END IT IS IMPER
ATIVELY REQUIRED THAT Hp
PRESIDENT SHALL BECOME
CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION

THE COMING MEN OF THE TIMES
ADDRESS OF THE COMMITTEE ON
A POWERFUL INDICTMENT
Uoraco Greeley was bom nt Amhorst,
N.H.. on February 3, 1811. His father.
Z-tccheus Grcclev, wns a farmer, nnd tho
.family Is of Scotch-Irish origin. Uoraco
is thu oldest survivor oi seven vniiurcn.
All his ancestors, as far as thera exists any
rcmcmbrnnco. woro farmers. Ho displayed
from early childhood an cngor thirst niter
knowledge, and beforo ho was ten years of
airono had notonly rend his lather s slender
stock of books, but had alto borrowed and
perused ncurlv every work within ton
miles of his home. Many of theso books
he studied by tho llcht of nino knots. So
great was his craving for Information that
he resolved early In llfo to follow tho pro
fession of a printer. Although his family
removed to west Haven, 't., in 1821. unci
young Horace had to usist his father for
live years In farming, ho nt tho samo time
studied constantly nnd carefully, nnd in
tho spring of 1826 entered ns nn apprentice
tho otllco of tho 'Northern Spectator,' a
wceKiy paper, published in j-.nst rouitney,
Rutland county, Vt. In tlio office lie
labored diligently to learn tlio urt of print
ing, and soon became an assistant editor.
In June. 1830. ilr. Grecluv's apprentice
ship was brought to a sudden clojo by tho
suspension of tho 'Spectator.' His family,
meantime, had removed to Erio county I'ii.,
anu alter spending n lew weeks with them
he worked lor a snort timo as journeyman
printer in Jamestown, also in Lodl, N. Y.,
and subsequently for a long period in Erie,
i'a. ills Knowledge oi stututics and oi
party movements and leaders was oven
then so cxtensivo nnd uccurato that ho
soon became regarded as n high authority
upon thoso points.
During August. 1831, Mr. Greeley camo
to Now York city. His whole worldly
gear upon his arrival consisted of u suit of
uiuo cotton jeans, two orown stuns, a chip
hat. n pair of brogues and less. than llvo
dollars In monov. Ho SDCodilv secured
employment ns u journeyman printer, and
continued working at his trade in vnriuus
offices till January 1. 1833, when ho com
menced business tor himself, entering Into
partnership with sir. Francis istory.
Greeley and Story wcro thoprintera of Dr.
Sbcppard's 'Morning Post,' the first poimy
daily paper over published in New York.
Tha journal however, fulled in three
weeks, and aftoran existencoof six months
Mr. Greeley's nascent partnership was dis
solved by tho death of tho junior member
of the firm. Tho Now Yorker,' a weekly
journal, devoted to politics and literature,
was commenced oniuc --uoi jiurcu, invj,
with Mr. Greeley ns editor. Its circula
tion was very largo for that period; still,
owinir to some tieicci in us business man
agement, tho paper baroly supported itself
and .Mr. tirccley was obliged to udd to tho
slender liicomy derived irom that souruo
by engaging in other labors of a similar
character. Ho suppl'ed tho ' Dully Whig '
with leaders for somo months, and for a
year, fn 1838-9, edited tho ' Jell'crsoniah, u
weekly pupcr published in Albany and
devoted to tho interests of the Whig party

Tho following is the address ef the Cin
cinnnll Lonventlon to tho people a
statement of tho reasons which led to tho
Llboral Revolt. It rings with a truo
sound und cannot but meet tho undorso
mor.t of Democrats as well us Liberals :
The udmlnistrutlon now in power ha8
rendered Itself guilty of wanton disregard
of tho laws of tho land, and of powers net
granted by tbo constitution. It has actod
as if tho laws had binding force only for
those who aro governod, and not for thoso
who govern. It has struck a blow nt tho
fundamental principles of tho constitu
ilonul government und tho liborties of th
Tho president of tho United Statos lias
openly used tho powers and opportunities
of his high ollicu for tho promotion of per
sonal onds. Ho has kept notoriously cor
rupt and unworthy men in places of
power und responsibility, to tho detriment
of tho public Intorest. Ho lias used tho
public servlco of tho government as n ma
chinery of partisan and personal influence,
and interfered with tyrannical arroganco
n tho political affairs of htutes and munic-
iprditles. Ho has rewarded with influen
tial and lucralivo offices men who had ac
quired his favor by valuablo presents,
thus stimulating demoralization of our po
litical lifo by his conspicuous example.
Ho has shown himself deplorably unequal
to the thsks Imposod upon him by tho no
cessltles of tho country, nnd culpubly
cureiess oi mo responsibilities of his hlirh
opinion of this general assembly, bo dls
countenanced by tho pooplo of this state
Mt. Brown's denunciation vi w iiu-
Hon nnd tho pro-slavery party was n re
markable effort of eloquonce. As editor
ot tbo St. Louis ' Domocrat,' which ho cs
tnbllshcd in 1854, ho nnd Frank Ululr sub
sequently led tho Ronton democracy
through nil Its phases of frcciolllsm, and
finally expanded it Into tho republican
party of Missouri. When tho war broko
out ho volunteered and raised a rcglmont,
whloh assisted in tho enpturo ot Camp
Jackson, nnd which ho commanded during
its term of service. Ho subsequently com
manded u brigude of militia during an In
vasion of tho state. His efforts In bchoir
of freedom woro continued during tho
progress of tho rebellion, nnd ho was fore
most in organizing tho movement wh eh
resulted In tho ordinance of emancipation
lu 1804. Ho was elected a senator in con
gress from Missouri for tho term com
mencing in 1B03 and ending in 1807, serv
ing on tho committees on military
allulrs, Pacific railroad, Indian til
fairs, public buildings and grounds
and printing. John Urown, formerly a sen
ator from Kentucky was his grandfather.
Supported by bis former journa', tho ht.
Louis 'Democrat;' against tho cntiro coun
try pross of his purty and tho sluto and
national' administrations, he was elected
governor of Missouri In 1870, beating tho
regular nominee ol his party and breaking
down all the muniments of proscription in
-Missouri. Tho following personal de
scription of him when ho became member
of congress will glvo n fair idea of his
present appearance! Ho Is about the me
dium height, very slender In figure, with a
palo face and llery red hair and beard.
Thoso words do not exaggerate, and
scarcely convey nn adequate idea of tho
brilliant huo of bis abundant leeks. They
uro "real raving red," nor could his must
ardent admirer call them anything else.
If ho were a lady, this wealth of auburn
curls would be, In tho present fush
ion of that hue, n geent ornament;
but as it is, it makes him certainly
striking, though assuredly not hand
somo. His styleof dress is neat and quiet ;
his manner of spenking calm at first,
though rising afterward to warmth nnd
eurnestness. Ono cannot bo long In his
company without discovering much firm
ness and' resolution of character, combined
with an activity peculiar to men of his
complexion und lightly built frame." Ho
was tho acknowledged leader of tho largo
party of republicans In Missouri who re
voltedat tho attempt of President Grant
to intorfero with tho stato olectlon n
couple of years ago. His inaugural ad
dress ns Governor placed him in high
favor with tho democrats, h thoy regard
ed its views In keeping with tlio g'reni in
terests of tho 'West, politlcul and material.
With tho democrats and republicans of
tho West tho namo of llonjatnln Grata
Iirown, is considered u towor ot strength.
On October 4, 1871, his proclamation
against thq Ku Klux Klun was of tho
most stringent and emphatic kind.

Tho partisans of the administration, as-
suming to bo the republican party, und
controlling Its organization, have at
tempted to Justify such wrongs and pall!
ate its abusof, to the end of maintaining
partisan useenduuey. They havo stood In
tho way of necessary investigations and In
dispensable reforms, pretending thut no
serious reform could be found with tlm
present administration of public affairs,
uius seeking to blind tho eyes of tho peo
ple. They havo kopt allvo the passions

have resorted to arbitrary measures In dl

never committed nn error thut nprung

"l.em to Tirluu'H iii."
Ho was tho ovcr-zcalous purtWim of free

tho over-zealous partisan of protection.
Ho has habitually sncritleed himself to
good impulses, sometimes misdirected nnd
sometimes out of seuson, but always gen

He did not fear the slave powor when it
controlled the politics of tho whole coun
try. Ho did not fear tlio war-power when
ho boldly went to Canada to mako nn im
possible peaco. Ho did not fear tho power
of prejudice when hooboyed tho generous
suggestions of a nature, always overflow

feared nothing in n long llfo of striving
after both ideal nnd practical standard';,
