We. tho Liberal UeiMililieans of Ui

pica as essential to just government:

1. "Wo rccognizo tho equality of nil

Unally subdued loven years ago, believing
that UNIVERSAL AMNESTY WILL

4. LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT

individual tho largest liberty consistent
with public order, for the state self-government,
and for the nation a return to
tho methods of pnaco and tho constitu
tional limitations of power.
"TRUE AM PKEACI1IXU."
C. Tho civil service of tho government
has become a mcro instrument of partisan
tyranny and personal ambition, and nn
object of sclQsh greed. It is a scandal
and reproach upon free Institutions, nnd
breeds a demoralization dangerous to tlio
perpetuity of republican government.
THEREFORE A WISE DEMAND.
C. Wo theroforo regard a THOROUGH
REFORM OF THE CIVIL SERVICE
u one of tho most pressing necessities of
the hour; that honesty, capacity and fidel

lic employment; that tho offices of tho
government ccaso to bo a matter of arbi
trary favoritism and patronage, and that
public station become again tho post of
honor. TO, THIS END IT IS IMPER
ATIVELY REQUIRED THAT NO
PRESIDENT SHALL BECOME A
CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION.

J. We demand a system of federnl tax
ation which shall not unnecessarily inter
fere with the industry or the pcoplo, and
which shall provldo tho means necessary
to pay the expenses of tho government,

deal of merriment for tho president and
his friends nt tho white house. Grant's
smiles, it Is said, woro frequent. Grant Is
wlso to do his laughing now. The Joke
will bo all on tho other side shortly, nnd
then "Let thoso laugh who win."
Julian Davis Has Withihiawn as
tho presidential candidate of tho Labor
Reformers, and the men who nominated
and supported him as tlio candldato of.lho
worUlng-mon, are now freo to support

party must have hold ofllco or wanted to.
It is a pity that thoio who remain cannot

Advortisor ays is true, Grant would not
have a corporal's guard of supporters left
in that event.

Tiik National Democratic Commit
tee mot in Now York on Wednesday
and appointed tho Ninth day of July and
tho city of Baltimore) as tho timo nnd place
for the holding of tho National Democratic
Convention. This action of tho commit
tee will very generally surprisoand disap
point tlio democracy of tho country. It
has been generally bellovcd for somo timo
past that the convention would bo held in
St. Louis, but tho high sachoms of tho
party havo decided otherwise. It now re
mains for tho democracy to
work for tho country between this
nnd tho Ninth of July. Let
them rompmbor that every voto against
Grccloy is a voto for Grunt that a third
candidato in tlio field can havo but ono re
sult, that of continuing in power tho pres
ent corrupt administration, and instead of
waiting to be guided by tho action of tho
convention, the democratic press and peo
ple should bend every energy to shapo its
courpo in tho direction which will win
and this lies in the ratification of tliouoin
ination of Groolcy and lirown.
We rkmauk in many of our demo
cratic exchanges a strong disposition to
support Greeley and Brown, coupled with
an evident fear that a declaration of
their sentiments iu advance of tho
meeting ot tho national dem
ocratic convention would bo
premature. Wo think theso newspapers
a little too cautious. Tho democrats of
the country should speak through tho nn
tioual democratic convention and not de
pend ur.on that body to speak for
them. In order that tho national conven
tion may bu a fulr exponent of tho sontl-
menu of n majority of the
party, It Is necessary that
the democratic press and people should
glvo the fullest and freest expression
to their real opinions. Such ao
tion on tho part of tho democracy now
is demanded by tho exigomy of tlio times.
We believe that tho nomination of Groo
lcy ar.d lirown is becoming moro nnd
more acceptable to tho democracy. In
quarters where it was at first received with
an odd mlxturoof surprise und disappoint
ment, wo notice a growing feeling nf con
tent and satisfaction with It, and this in
many instances crops out apparently
against what 101110 democratic Journals
conceive to bo their wisest courso silence
in regard to lhoirconvlctionsns to tho lib
eral ticket. Although tho press doos not
create public sentiment, Its influence in
that direction is potent, and democratic
journals which boliove that the Interests
of the country would bosafe in tbo hinds
or lloruco'.Ureoloy, should not hcsltato to
declare themselves. Sincerity and hon
esty on tho part of tho democruoy at this
tlmo-a timo pregnant of good or ill to
tbojeountry may be and we believe wllj
be, its salvation.
Washington, D. C, Mar 7, 1872.
THK "WHAT IS IT" NOMINATION.
The nomination of lloraco Greeley has
been moro than a surprise, It ha upset all
tho political calculations. It was agreed
on nil hands, wbon tho nows first reached
hero, that thoso who had tnado tho nomin
ation had cast overboard all thought of a
coalition with the democracy; but such is
not the case, for thoy aro at work liko
beavers trying to impress upon tho demo
cratic senators and mombors tho necessity
of their party supporting Mr. Grooloynnd
thoy triumphantly point to tho numbor of
democratic journals who advocate tho on
dorscmont of the liboral republican nom
ination. A rumot1 was also going tho
rounds that Hon. Geo. H. Pondleton and
Ex-Senator Hendricks woro favorable to
Grcoley's endorsement by tho democratic
convention. From conversations with tho
frlonds of tho latter gontloman I am vory
much inclinod to doubt tho truth of tho
story. Although tho radicals affect to
laugh at Greeley's nomination, tho tono of
tho members of congress and ofllco holders
and their press is ono of groat doubt and
perplexity. Tho gonoral fooling among
tho domoeratlc members and senators is
for n democratic nomination, yet consider
able rcscrvo is manifested as though thoy
wcro not suro what might happen. What
ever may bo tho feeling In other sections
of tho country thoro is a sort of shakyncss
in political sentiment horo which is very
hard to detonr.lnc: A fow wcoks and the
sky will be entirely clear, all doubts will
bo resolved, tho great campaign ontored
upon nnd from present Indications I am
most hopeful of success.
HUMORS or THE CAMPAION.
Already has tho work of fun begun. In
lo-day's 'Republican' of this city, a letter
purporting to bo Orceloy's lottor of accspt
anco Is published. It drags in all of ll?r
oco's peculiarities, his profanity, tho inev
itable d n, infernal liar, villain, etc., tn
to Richmond, protection, tompornncc, etc.,
etc. It illustrates vory plainly that wUt
over party carries Horace Grcoley on ts
shoulders will havo to boar an amount f
ridiculo that in all probability woull
swamp any party no matter how strong (t
might be. . 1
chairman of tho Pennsylvania liberal h
publican statu committee, has publish (1
an address calling on tho liberals to orgai
izo immcdiato and systematic.
THE RADICAL NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COM
MITTEE met at tho capltol yestorday and consid
ered tho Cincinnati nominations. Ther
aro trying to keep their courage up by
whistling to tho ctt'oct that theso nomina
tions can bo beaten as well as any other.
It was also said that they felt suro that
tho democrats will put a ticket in the field.
Whether this wish is father to tho thought
or not I lcavo my readers to dctcrmlno.
LA1I0K REFORM CONVENTION IN PENN

nomination of Hon. Wm. McClelland, M.

This nomination would bo a very wise ono
as tbo domocratio convention ot Reading
would no doubt endorse this gallant soldier
and sterling democrat and thus socuro tho
Koystono stato beyond peradvonture to tho
from tho Philadelphia convention after
receiving a complimentary voto is still tho
subject of gossip but thoro aro fow green
enough to entertain so self-sacrificing nn
cstimato of Gen, Grant. My word for it
ho will "stick" and "fight it out on that
lino" if ho knew it would smash, as it
probably will, tbo radical party.
Tho debato on tbo amendment to the ap
propriation bill increasing tho subsidy to
tho Pacific mail steamship company be
tween San Francisco and China and Japan
was qulto interesting, embracing tlio re
vival of our commorco and tho incrcaso of
our navy, tlio training of American sea
men, tho rolativo merits of iron and
wooden vessels on tho Pacific, American
ship building, tho control of tho tradu
with tho east, and England s method of
fostering her commorco, which showed
that tho lines from Llvorpool to Hong-
Kong received moro than two nnd a half
million dollars per annum in gold from
tlm government. Tho advantages which
will accruo to us nationally and commer
cially by congress enabling this company
to double tho numbor of its ships and trips
wcro so clearly demonstrated by tho Cali
fornia senators, Cassorly and Cole, aidod
by Stockton, of Now York, and Corbctt, of
Oregon, that tho amondmont was passed
by a voto of 20 yeas to 18 nays. Senator
Colo stated that if wo do not put on this
additional sorvico wo will sco an English
lino on that precise rtmto within a hort
time. Tho loss to us should this happen
is shown by tho fact that In 1861! not a sin-
glo pound of tea was imported into Now
York by way of San Francisco, and In
1871, through this communication, tho
numbor of pounds was 17,8.1",928, while
the increased duties received by this com
pany wero $0,164,233 m gold. Tho house
will without doubt concur In tho senato
THE RADICAL I'OW.VYOW
ovor tho best means for Grant nnd his
rnodol cabinet to back do"n from tho con
sequential damages stand which thoy so
foolishly took, is very harshly commontod
on. Tho democratic members of the com-
mlttoo on foreign affairs claim that thoy
should have beon invited to tho confer
ence on thts question, it not boing a party
ono, and Hon. Fernando Wood denounced
this omission to so invito thorn in vory so
vcro terms on tho floor of tho houso yos
terday. Tho radicals squirmed under the
Inflection and trlod to explain matters,
but, as Mr. Wood had called tho attention
of tho country to tho matter, It was all ho
THK DRAKE AMENDMENT.
This odious amendment, which restricts
tho Jurisdiction of tho court of cIhIuh to
loyal claimants, barring oven a pnldon
tial pardon, was non-concurred In by tlio
houso yesterday. Tho houso being noaror
the people than tho senate, and moro di
rectly responsible to thorn, thoy hardly
daro enact a law so harsh, and ongendor

this ono. Tho voto in tbo senate was a

began shortly after two o'eloik. A mo
tion was made, but lost, that tho call for
the Democratic Convention sliould bo in
definitely postponed. Noxt canio the
question as to tho timo for holding tho
Democratic Convention. Great diversity
ot opinion prevailed on tins point. A
largo numbor of dologatos expressed their
opinion that tho Convention should bo held
on a day antorior to tho Philadelphia Con
vention, while others urged, that, in tho
present disorganized condition of tho Dem
ocratic party, tlio wisest plan would bo to
tlx a uato which would allow tiiu result of
tho Philadelphia Convention being known.
This opinion prevailed, and the Uth of Ju
Iv was determined on as tho dato on which
tlio convention should bo held.
Next camo tho question as to where tho
convention should bo held. Baltimore,
Cincinrnti, St. Louis nnd Louisville wero
tho contesting cities. Tho cholco wii car
ried in lavor or ilaltimoro by u voto or
thrco to one, tho principal ground urged
being that in that city lefs unduo outsido
