PREAMBLE.
We, tlio Liberal Itopiiblicftns of tho
United States In Convention assembled nt
Cincinnati, proclaim tboYollowIng princi
ples m essential to just government:
DKAIt IftftVEN Bl'BIKD.
j, recognizo tho equality of nil
men before tho law, and hold that It is
the duty of the government in its dealings
with the peoplo to mete out KQU AL AND
EXACT JUSTICE TO ALL, OF
"WHATEYKlt NATIONALITY, KACE,
COLOR OH PEKSUASION, II ELI -OIOUS
OR POLITICAL.
2. WE PLEDGE OURSELVES TO
MAINTAIN THE UNION OF THESE
STATES, EMANCIPATION AND EN
FRANCHISEMENT, AND TO OP
POSE ANY REOPENING OF THE
QUESTIONS SETTLED BY THE
THIRTEENTH, FOURTEENTH AND
FIFTEENTH AMENDMENTS OF
THE CONSTITUTION.
VNIVKRAAL AMNKNTT.
3. Wo demand tho Immodiato and Ab
solute removal of all disabilities imposed
on account of the rebellion which was
finally subdued seven years ago, bolieving
that UNIVERSAL AMNESTY WILL
RESULT IN THE COMPLETK PAC
1FICATION IN ALL SECTIONS OF
THE COUNTRY-
BEHGCBATIC TO THE CURE.
4. LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
with Impartial suffrage, will guard the
rights of all citizens more securely than
any centralized power. Tho people and
the public welfaro require the SUPRE
MACY OF TnE CIVIL OVER TUB
MILITARY AUTHORITY and
FREEDOM OF PERSON UNDER
THE PROTECTION OF THE HA
BEAS CORPUS. Wc demand for tho
Individual the largest liberty consistent
with public order, for tho stato self-gov
ernment, and for tho nation a return to
the methods of pnaco and tho constitu
tional limitations of power.
"TRUE AN PKEACIII.NU."
6. The civil service of tho government
b&s become a mere instrument of partisan
tyranny and personal ambition, and an
object of selfish greed. It is a scandal
and reproach upon free Institutions, and
breeds a demoralization dangerous to the
perpetuity of republican government.
THEREFORE A WINK DEMAND.
0. We tboreforo regard a THOROUGH
REFORM OF THE CIVIL SERVICE
as one of 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 iirbl
trary favoritism and patronage, nnd thut
public station become again tho pout of
honor. TO THIS END IT IS IMPEH
ATIVELY REQUIRED THAT NO
PRESIDENT SHALL DECOME A
CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION.

7. We demand a system of federal tux
allon which shall not unnecessarily inter

the Democratic papers have taken posi

JfDor. Skiknxh, of Qulncy, tho l?st
lawyer In Illinois nnd one of tho most In
telligent Democrats in tho country, has
declared In unequivocal terms for Greeley
and Brown.
Richard Yatks, from n drunken bed,

in this uniquo mnnnor contradicts tlio as

noenncy, "well-known in this community
1 thnt Mr. Hntflold is not n lloraco Greeley
mnn. Mr. Hntflold U a democrat."
There, now.
Gns. Grant ha sutfered considerably
in tho suspicions of tho public by tho
mysterious disappearance from tbo war
department of tho papers containing tho
result of tho inquiry into tho military re
cord of General Bucl during tho wnr.
Whether tho finding of Ihe pnpars would
confirm pio suspicions of tho peoplo or
clear them away altogether, aro questions
which will probably nevor bo nnsworcd.
Victobia Woodhull was formally
nominated for tho presidency by tho cen
vehtion of multifarious reformers which
met in Now York city last weok. As tbo
female woman suffragists, howevor en
thusiastic they may bo for their nominee,
cannot vote, Mr. Woodhull is not suro of
ranro than three votes in tho wholo coun
try Stephen Pearl Andrews', herremnin-
ng husband, Col. Blood's, and Theodore
Tilton's. And even Theodore is placed in
rather an embarrassing position. He can't
very well go back on Horace Greeloy, and
yet how can ho fall to endorse Mrs. Wood-
hull?
Ho remarked also that ho hid reason for
the faith that wat In him when ho said,
the Grant men who think tho democracy
re going to tun a ttrMght ticket aro
sadly mistaken. And thus ran on the Old
Bourbon Colonel, wisely, forcibly, and
volubly, making, as tho Qulncy 'Herald'
says, ono of tho most forcible speeches
over dellvored In that city of good talkers.
A WORD ABOUT VOORHEES.
D. W. Voorhees has been called by his
admirers "Indiana's favorite son," nnd
Jus been, In fact, n democrat much followed
after, not only In Indiana, but also in nil
the other states of tho Union. Ho hns
written rovcral essays, which ho has miss
named speeches, nnd thoso hnvo been
widely rend nnd considerably admired.
His stylo is florid if not gorgeous, nnd his
slinllics nro not much tho worso from tho
constant wenr to which ho subjects them.
As a democrnt, ho ranks with tho tough
knots that cannot be put to any particu
lar use, and yet Inck any of tho qualities of
tho ornamental. He began before tho Into
war to insist that tho negro wns not enti
tled to and should never exercise tho right
of suffrage ; thnt tho doctrine of non-coercion
wns tho truo doitrino of tho constitu
tion and that tho south could not be co
erced to stay in tho Union; that slavery
was n divine institution; that republicanism
was tho sum of all villainies, and that
Hon. D. W. Voorhees was Infallible To
this day Mr. Voorhees holds to the opinion
that ho is the know-all iftid tho diroct-all
of tho Domocracy, and .lately has allowed
this very Insolent and rather insulting
characteristic to crop, out in hi Grant
speech of yesterday, and in a telegram in
which he says : " Tho Democratic party
will moot in National Convention, and
nomlnato its candidates," etc. Who nu,
tbori.cd Mr. Voorhees to use tho word will
In .this connection? Is ho Sir Ornclo?
Tho Democratic party may do tho foolish
thing ho Indicates, and will if tho advico
of Democrats of hit kind is heeded Dem
ocrats who como up with snail-like paco in
tho rear ot avontt, protesting that what
has been shall not be, nnd Inviting ovils
thoy deprccato by refusing to sllflo tholr
prejudices and net with men with whom
thoy bavo differed in the past. If tho
pooplo of the Republic are to bo led out
of captivity, Voorhcos must botheAaion
if not tho Moses of tho deliverance; and
if ho cannot bo, the bonds must bo
strengthened rather than wcakoncd. Light
that does not flow from his taper is worse
than darkness. IIo it one of tho selfish
prophets of Democracy, who cry : " Wo,
w) f and smito tho hand of tho stranger
who would lead tho country they profess
to lovo into a happier era.
tfaf" The 'World' wants to know II
Grant will bo forced "out of tbo canvass.
If the democrats In their natlonnl con
vention resolve to bo foolish and nomlnato
fossils nnd revolutionists for candidates,
ns thoy have been In tho habit of doing
when llioy got oxcllod by n prospect of
success, General Grnnt will not only be
forced out of tho canvass, but ho will bo
rcolccWd. But if tho democrats liavo

11 K PREFERS GREELEY TO GRANT.
TRIBUTE TO THE PHI I.O.SOPIIER'S
CHARACTER.
JUDGE DOO LITTLE'S LETTER.
Elsewhere, in this issuo of The Bulle
tin, we publish a letter from ex-Senator
J. R. Doollttle, of Wisconsin, in reply
to a note addressed him by tho editor of
this paper. In tho main, wo agree with
the sentiments of the Judgo's loiter, but
think he docs not go fur enough in tho
right direction. There is nn Implied com
pact between tho Democrats and Liberal
Republicans a contract in complinnco
with Ihuturiui of which tho Liborals have
abandoned tho republican party and step.
ped forward in lino with tho advance
guard of tho Democratic forces. If tho
Democrats fthould abandon those allios by
tho nomination of a ticket lit Baltimore,
thoy would provo to tho world their utter
baseness and deserve tlio contempt of overy
honest citizen of tho republic. They
would sacrifice the leadors of tho Liberal
revolt, and secure to tbo Radicals complclol
control of tho government for years to
come. No matter what tho action of tho
Philadelphia convention may bo, It is tho
moral and patriotic duty of the Domocrats
to Bland nhoulder to shoulder with tho
Liberal Republicans until the closo of tho
golls in Novomber next.
THE OLD WHEEL HORSE, DICK.
How tlitiob change and men ehango
with them I Col. W. A. Richardson, of
Qulncy, sometimes yclept "tho old wheel
horso of democracy" tho distinguished
gentloman who tomctlmo since denounced
all democrats who acquiesced in the XVth
Amendment, at enemies of tho party, and
who raited his voice In loud cries of disap
probation when the Now Departure be
came the fashion, has, at last, surrendered
at discretion to the dictate! of common
tcnte, and it a hearty Oreoley man. At
a late public meeting held at Quincy, the
Colonel stated that be knew tuocost was
only with Greeley, and did not propose to
threw away hit itreogtb lu the campaign,
Trom tho Harrlsburs Chronicle
A Number of democrats in this vicin
ity express themselves In this wiso : "Wo
prefer to select our own candidatn for tho
presidency, ana in caso wo aro denied that
privilege, wo would just ns soon, support
urum as ino disappointed, latill-unuing
republican the Cincinnati convention hns
selected for us."
Remarks. The Democrats who talk in
this mannor should make hasto to get into
tbo Grant party. Thoy aro not entitled
to a place among sonsiblo and practical
men. Tho Democrat who would as soon
support Grant ns Greeley is no truo Dem
ocrat, nnd tho Democrat who finds fault
with Greeley for finding fault with Grant,
with whom all Democrats havo found
fault for four years past, Is a fault finding
fool with whom wo deslro no longer to
fellowship in politics. Thoold slogan: '-I'm
a Domocrat and won't compromise," has
lost its powor, and many of tho old Bour
bon lenders who were lu tho habit of play
ing on this string have come down grace
fully, and with their accustomed impu
dence aro now stopping forward to lead
tho Progrosslvo Domocrats into the Lib
eral party. The spoctacle is to bo seen
hero in Southern Illinois, and wo havo no
doubt wo, of tho progressive school, who
onditred tho contumely, of theso men not
long since, will havo the pleasuro of hoar-
ing our reformed friends declare they do
servo tho thanks of tho office-giving voters
for leading in the successful attack upon
stubborn but yielding radicalism.

Hn. 3. U. DooitTTir,
Dear Sir: From a pocial telegram
to tho Chicago 'Times'- I learn it l bo
licved by somo that you will not support
tho candidates of tho Cincinnati conven
tion, but will use your intliionce to induco
tho National Democratic Convention to
nomlnato another ticket. I havo great
respect for your opinion on political sub
Jccts, nnd would liko to know If the infor
mntion contained In the 'Times' special
is correct.
If I am not "mistaken, a majority of
tho Democrats in this part of Illinois, bo
lievo it tlio duty of all pjtrotlc citizens to
support Greeley and Brown. The infor
mation they now huva teaches them to
not doubt that, in tlio defeat of tho Liber
al candidates the triumph of tho Radicnl
nominees would bo secured, tho cause o:
reform bo impeded, tho centralizing in
fluences of radicalism be mndo more
potont nnd tho manifest tendency of tho
republic towards imperialism bo greatly
accelerated. It is truo, Sir. Greeley has
been a bitter foe of tho Dcmocritic party,
but to-day ho stands upon n platform
overv patriot may npprove, and on which
you nnd other sagacious Democrats have
stood since the ratification of tho XVth
Amendment. AVith all Mr. Greeley's
faults, ho is an honest man, n good man,
wiso man nnd a patriot. Ho wns
not behind you in stopping forward after
tho wnr and saying " Let us havo peace,
with universal amnesty, with n return to
tho practices of constitutional govern
ment, with a discontinuance of tho pomp
and circumstanco of tho military estab
lishment, and with reformation of tho cor
ruptions vliich, as Iho war progressed, be
came flagrant nnd a crying shanio." For
thoso results the Democrats havo lone
been laboring. I hey may now sccuro
them. If thoy promptly rally to the sup
port of tho Liberal ticket, It will be elect
ed, and radicalism topple and fall prone

and although wo bad no voice in tholr se
lection.. Wo go for measures. As for
men, wo only Inquire, aro thoy honest
imd capable and truo to their principles?
".Oreat principles aroint stake, vlr.:
whothor local self government 'shnll bo
roslorcd to tho stales of tho South, nnd
tho rights of nil tho states, under the con
stitution bo secured ; whether tho federal
government shall be, onco more, limited
to tho powers which tho constitution gives
to it; nnd nil others shall bo reserved to
tlio stales nnd to tlio people. In these
tho Liberal Republicans and tho Demo
cratic Republicans nro ngrccd. Thoy nro
both alike opposed to centralization, to
military despotism, to federal corruption,
nnd they, both alike, nro in favor of grn
ulno civil service reform, from tlio presi
dent down.
If ngrced in these great things; If
agreed upon tho living issues of our times,
why disngroo upon mon? Why nllow
tho question of men, among men known
to be true, honest and rapnblo to
control their ncllon? .
If wo lived In ordinary times, If only
the question of a duty on tin, coffee, pig
iron, silk or French wine, were involved,
personal preferences might bo allowed to
control our action. I do not deny thnt I
mny hnvo prejudices ngninst .Mr. Grcoley.
In my youth, nnd until 1 8.1f.f I wns always
politically opposed lo him. From 1800
to 18C5, from tlio Kansas invasion, tho
prelude of our civil wnr to tho closo of
that war,T ncled with him. Since then
in somo things wo hnvo earnestly dllforcd.
Blows have been glvon, nnd blows re
turned. Hut ho is a man of high intelli
gence, and of undoubted integrity.- Ho
is truo to the main principle underlying
tho Liberal Republican movement, viz
tho duty of tho North to extend fcglving
and fraternal sentiments to the peoplo of
tho South, as tho best nnd only suro basis
of tho restoration of lovaltv to the
Union.
Instead of unforgiving hate, hn would
exhibit fraternal sympathy, and affection.
In him'tlf ho embodies thut idea. Here
is the secret of his strength. Ho oppenls
to tho henrt of tho South. A man of high
moral courage, ho whs among tho llrst to
raise ills voice for universal nmnc'tv. Ho
proved his sincerity when ho balled Jef

entored Into tho canvass for Greoloy und
Brown with much energy, nnd is doing
a good work in the good causo. In tho
last issuo of that paper, among other
"strong points," the following is to bo
found :
"Wo lose uatlonco when reading such
Democratic sheets as the Chicago 'rimes'
and 'News.; Thoy would sacrifice tlio bot
Interests of the country to save party, and
then aro so stupid thoy cannot sua what
tho interosts of tho party dumund."
This is ns truo as preaching;
"Tho Democratic party cannot now
turn back from tbo Liberal Republican
movement. Such n course would bo a
Drench of faith that would bring tho party
.into disgrace and contempt, and ruin it
loruver. it wouia uu an oxnimiion oi a
lack of honor nnd integrity thnt it never
could survive''
And this delicate hint may bo studied
with profit:
"Tho Imperial Grant ring embraces a
few professed Democrats whose solo aim
is to distract tho Democratic party, and
now thoy are particularly dnsirou to
break up the Liberal organization by
withdrawing from It the countenance and
support of the Democrats, Those treach
erous, mon led Democrats may have agents

still bald to tho suspicion. They should

Dear Sir: Your fuvor of tlio Otl
instant is duly received, and the statement
of tho press, to which you refer, viz: that
I will "not support tho nominees of tlio
Cincinnati convention, but will uso my
influence to induco tlio Nntioual Demo
erotic Convention to nomlnato another
ticket," is entirely unnuthnrizod.
My action nnd advico will depend upoti
future events. It is not certain that Gen
oral Grant will bo nominated at l'liilndol
phln. 'ft appears less certain than before
Mr. Grcoloy's nomination. That noinina
tion, with tho growing conviction that, n
botwoen him nnd Gonornl Grant, tho mast
of Domocrntlc Republlcons will support
Oreoley, may, by tho timo thnt convention
assembles, n month henco, malto Ills dec
tlon nppcar to probable that Grant will bo
withdrawn ; and somo othor person Mr
Colfax, Hlniuo, Adnms, or Gonornl Slier
mnn, oven, may Lo nominated in his place
What Mr. Grcoley would thon do it not
cortaln. Such an event would be no more
unexpected than his own nomination,
Events inovo so rapidly that a now nom'
nation nt Philadelphia, which Sunator
Sumner now ndvhc to mako peace among
Republicans, may put a now phaio upon
affairs. ,
But if wo assume, that Grant's nomina
tion is it thing already fixed, as it probably
is, thon a very gruve responsibility is
thrown upon tho Democratic Republican
party.
I bollovo the ro-olocUon of Grnnt, and
tho continuing for another torm of four
jears of tho same principles, policy nnd
practices in the loiloral administration
would endanger Republican liberty in thl
country; and, therefore, assuming, as 1
generally assumod, that Grant and Greeley
are to be the opposing candidates In th
presidential contest, instead of advising
tho Democratic 'Republicans convention
to oppose the Liboral Republican more-
tnent, or to put candidates In the field in
opposition to it, ray advice would be to
act .with It, although tbe candidates chosen
to letdU may not be our first or even our
second choke among Liberal Republicans,
