VTe, tho Liberal Republicans of tho
United States in Convention nsjcmbled at
Cincinnati, proclaim tho following princi
ple as essential to just government:
DEAD IHhVES Bl'HIKD.
1. "Wo rocognlzo tho equality of all
men beforo tho law, and hold that it is
the duty of tho government in its dealings
with tho people to mete out EQUAL AN D

solute removal of all disabilities imposod
on account of tho rebellion which was
finally subdued seven years ago, believing
that UNIVERSAL AMNESTY WILL
RESULT IN THE COMPLETE PAC
IFICATION IN ALL SECTIONS OF
DEMOCRATIC TO THE CORE.
4. LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
with impartial suffrage, will guard tho
rights of all citizens tnoro securely than
any centralized power. Tho people and
the public welfare require tho SUPRt

FREEDOM OF PERSON UNDER
THE PROTECTION OF THE HA
BEAS CORPUS. Wo demand for tho
individual tho largest liberty consistont
with public order, for tho stato self-gov
ernment, and for tho nation a return
tho methods of peaco and tho constitu
tional limitations of power.
"TRUE AH PREACIII.NU."
6. Tho civil service of tho government
hat 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, und
breeds a demoralization dangerous to tho
perpetuity of republican government.
THEREFORE A WINE DEMAND.
0. Wo therefore regard a THOROUGH
REFORM OF THE CIVIL SERVICE
at one ot tho most pressing necessities of
the hour: that honesty, capacity and fldul
ity constitute tho only valid claims to pub
lie employment j that tho offices of tho
government ccaso to bo n matter of arbi
trary favoritism and patronace, and that
public station becomo again tho post of
Honor. TO THIS END IT IS IMPER
ATIVELY REQUIRED THAT NO
PRESIDENT SHALL BECOME A
CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION.

which the Col. expressed his gratitude.

preparations for safety tho schemers havo
been comnelled. in a detrrco. to bo honest.
and all their caution has not sufficed to
koop thoir secrets from tho man they aro
plotting to defraud of tho nomination.
Tho argument they confidentially adduce
in support of their unmistuKauio, tnougu
disguised, troachory is that tho party owes
nothing to Grant but its salvation in 1868:
that for such sorviccs as his name and
famo thon rendered ho has been amply
rewarded by four yoars of power, which
ho has used moro as n personal omolumcnt
than for tbo good of tho party, and that
if as now seems urobablo ho shall turn

crow from tossing him overboard to
