The 1-okt WmrriKit, who christened

tho Ualtlmoro convention for any such at

nominated at Ualtlmoro. Theso onc-sldcd
statements of tho rulo-or-ruln democratic
journals, and of the penny-dog nowspapors
which follow In their tracki, will not do.
Some Remarks wo mado in this papor
last week havo aroused tho furious nngor
of tho Chicago 'Tlmos.' Wo said a few
things about tho 'Times,' and a stato poli
tician or two, nnd tho presidential candl
dacyof JudgoDnvIs, which from tho way tho
'Times' ranls,ovidontly hit hard. It calls the
Bullkti.v n "democratic nowspapor con
cern at Cairo." Uy tho way, wo havo nl
ways noticed that tho ucfortunato journal
which incurs tho censuro of tho Chicago
'Times,' Is Invariably dubbed by that with
ering sheet as " it nowspapor concern."
Tho 'Times' should look up n now nick
name. It would glvo variety and vim to
its abuso of newspapors which disagree
with It. However, wo quota from tho
'Times!1
"Tho democrats in this part of tho stato"
says the Cairo concern, "aro substantially
a unit in their determination not to bo
' led without protosfand n fight Into new
political defeats." the Times would lio
glad to know what reason they havo for
thinking that, in committing theiiHclvcs
to tho Cliitlipumia sage, without respect to
tho action of tho democracy gonornliv. and
witnout knowing or taxing tlio troublo to
find out what strength tlio philoopher can
bring from tho republican party, they are
not precipitating tncmseives into a new
political defeat, morn disastrous than nnv
othor thny havo oxporionccd.
Before tho Cincinnati convention, the
Chicago 'Times' was lavish in its ndvlco
to tho democracy to accept tho doctrine of
passivcism. It was for cramming tho
doso down tho throat of democrats nt
all hazards, and was fierce In its denuncia
tion of domocrats and democratic journnls
which doubted tho wisdom of taking-tlio
mcdlcino. It preached dally sermons on
tho duty of tlio democracy to forego party
names, and by some small sacrifices of
opinion nnd pro-concoived ideas of party
loalty, to stop forwurd, join tho liberal
movement and savo tho country. Tho lib
eral convention met nnd nominated Hor
ace Greeley, nnd now, tho reason tho
democrats of this part of tho stato havo
for committing themselves in his favor Is,
Hint in common with tho pcoplo all over
the country, they havo cut loose from
their allegiance to politicians and party
leaders. They aro doing exactly what tho
Chicago 'Times,' beforo tho Cincinnati
convention, advised thorn to do thoy aro
sacrificing party for tho country's sake,
and it is no uso now fur tho Chicago
Times,' ono of tlio papers
which cut tho democratic dikes in
ordor that tho tido of public opin
ion might run in this direction, to en
deavor to stop tho flow. Tho democratic
masses know little differonco between
Horaco Greeley arid Judge Davis, as re
publicans, and not having, as tho 'Times'
gives tho public reason to believe it had,
any interested motives why thoy should
havo boon particularly for Judgo Davis,
they havo thrown themselves freely and
fully into tho movement for Horaco Gree
ley, who appears to havo touched tho pop
ular heart moro than it is possible Judge
Davis, or any other of tho candidates be
fore tlio Cincinnati convention, could havo
done.

THE POPULAR WAVE.
The kollowi.no is tho testimony of
Judge Sandford E. Church, ofNew York,
tho New York ' World's' nominee for tho
Ualtimoro convention :
I am free to say that when I first re
ceived tlio intelligence of tlio nomiiintion
of Mr. Grccloy by tho liberal republicans
nt Cincinnati, it struck me us a mistake al
most equal to destroying tho liberal move
ment, whiclt had sta'rtcd oil' so uusplcious
ly. i have had no pursonal acquaintance
with Mr. Greeley, but from tho position
which ho has occupied beforo the public,
and his life long antugonism to the demo
cratic party, I could not for a momoiit be
liuvo that tlio democracy could ever bu in
duced to htipport him for tho highest office
in tho gift of tlio people. Since then I
havo had leisure and timo to reflect upon
tho subject; havo been homo and havo
taken somo pains to ascertain tho feelings
of tho people, and to obtain its drift of
ptlbllu sentiment. To secure tills I havo
gono among tho common people- nnd the
men who uro not seeking office, and who
voto from conscientious duty. 1 never go
to what aro called tho political leaders,
nor tho politicians nor offico-soekors, when
I dcslro to know tho public sentiment or
drift of opinion, but to tho Intelligent
mechanic, tho farmer, and tho laboring
mnn. It is there tho chango in public
opinion and its drift is first discovered nnd
can bo ascertained moro correctly than
from any other source. I havo tak'en the
troublo to talk to this class of men, draw
ing thorn out without oxpressing any
views of my own. In all that I have
talked with, I have only mot with one
man who says ho will not voto for Grcc
loy. In many cases democratic farmers
havo sold: "it seems queer for us to go
for Greeley, and at first was a bitter pill;
but if it is nccossary to defeat Grant then
wo will chocrfully go fur him," Others un
hesitatingly declared in favor of tho demo.
cratlo convention indorsing Jlr. Greeley.
It Is my opinion that tho mass of the dem
ocrats aro roitdy to go for Greeloy, and to
my surprise I found tho Irish voters al
most unanimous for mm.

1II.UE GRASS AND (IREELEY."
Wo moved along, tho passengers talk
ing politics to tho music of tho clattering
wheels.
Said nn old ISIuo Grass farmer, as hu
drew Inspiration from it plug of tobacco,
"Now, 1 can't seo it."
"Seo what?" asked nnothcr, not catch
ing tlio drift of tho old man's sentiments.
"Whv, tho uso of us democrats voting
for Grccloy. It's going ngln tlio very llrst
principle of our lives. It's turning around
in our track and following them back,
back, to well. I don' know whore, but its
going back on ourselves. I ask myself
every day, can 1 do it? and 1 liavu not
yet got an answer that I could. After it man
Inn swam down stream all his life, nnd
found it miirlitv pleasant, then to k him
to right about and swim up, when ho don't
know what lie 11 meet, is putting it to nun
pretty strong pretty strong,"
"You won't support Greeley, then ?''
"Unon mv honor as a life-long demo
crat, voting that ticket liko clock-work lor
forlv-odd years, 1 uon t soo how l can,
"flow doe Grant suit you ?"
"Grant I I'll not voto for him under any
consideration that could bo named.''
'Then if it Is narrowed down to Grant
or Greeloy, as it will be, what will1 you
do?"
"Do you really think its coming to
that r uskcu old uiue umw, in sorrouiui
tones.
"I do."
"Well, then, I hardly know what to
say; but if it comes to tlio pinch, I shan't
vote for Grant. As botweon Greeley and
Grant, give me old Grccloy all tho time,
but dou'l glvo mo cither if you can help
it."
Another democrat said ho had been
thinking over tho mnttor, nnd ho couldn't
see so much objection to Urceley, after
all. Tho nigger was all played out, and no
longer an issue Tho tnrltl was men
tloncd.
"Oh, wc, in tho south don't earn a cent
tor that one way-or tho other. .Mora Im
portnnt question bother us. Tho presi
dent enn I rcguluto tho tariil nny way.
Tho great question with thu south is how
to gel rid of Grunt aud'his gang of mili
tary hangers-on and carpet-baggers. If
Greeloy can oust him, then wo aro for
ureeloy."
"Can ho carry tho state
"Grcoley? yes, by a majority of fifty
thousand."
"Provided tho democrats make no nnm
inntion?
"Cortuinly; if they nominate at Ualtl

"Then I'm opposed to it nomination,1
said vencrublo UI'uu Gras, as tho deeper-

upon him; "give u Grcoley, old Sunnier,

put urunt on us nny more .
"You nro for Greeley then," naked tho

Yes, I'll como out flat-footed, and do mv
best for the old chap. I'll voto for him,
treat for him, but, boys, dou t ask mo to

'Pl.n.. I.,. ... .!!... C.. . llt-l... "
ho continued, as his memory ran back to
tlio good old democratic times "why, if a
leuow imu ioiu mo ten years ago that I
should ever voto for Horaco Greeley, I
wouiu nuvo nung myscu or him, one.
WHAT HK.VUY CLAY WOULII DO AllOL'T
" I'll tell you, boys," said another son of
uid Kentucky, " what makes me rather
take to Greeley. Of coun-u I'd rather voto
for a democrat; if I could put in a ballot
oncu for John C. Ureckiiirulge, it would
do my soul good; but I can't; thing havo
got all turned upside down, and every way.
Wo must look at mutter as they are, and
not ns wo would havo thorn. As I wa
saying, what makes mo Kinder take to
Greeley, was his life-long friendship for
itcnry tiay. i no two loved ono another,
und 1 know when Clay put confidence in
it man, that man was all right. If he
could speak from tho spirit-world to-day,
I'd bet lie would say ' (Jo in boys.' When
I think of tlicsu things I coiieludo that

"If Greeley remain in tho field." said
another, " I shall voto for him whether tlio
democrats run n man or not. I've been a
