DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
PREAMBLE,
We, tho Liberal Republicans of tho
United States in Convention assembled at
Cincinnati, proclaim tlio following princi
ples ns essential to Just government:
DEAD IMl'EN HURIKD.
1. Wo recognizo tho equality of all
men beforo tho law, and bold that It is
the duty of the government in its dealings
with tho people to mete out EQUAL AN D
EXACT JUSTICE TO ALL, OF
WHATEVER NATIONALITY, RACE,
COLOR OR PERSUASION, RELI
GIOUS OR POLITICAL.
2. WE PLEDGE OURSELVES TO
MAINTAIN THE UN ION OP THESE
STATES, EMANCIPATION AND EN
FRANCHISEMENT, AND TO OP-
POSE ANY REOPENING OF THE
QUESTIONS SETTLED RY THE
THIRTEENTH, FOURTEENTH AND
FIFTEENTH AMENDMENTS OF
THE CONSTITUTION.
II.NIVEUNAI, AM.NKNTV
3. Wo demand tho immediate and ab
solute removal of all disabilities imposed
on account of the rebellion which was
finally subdued seven years ago, believing
that UNIVERSAL AMNESTY WILL
RESULT IN THE COMPLETE PAC
IFICATION IN ALL SECTIONS OF
THE COUXTHY-
DEMOCRATIC TO THE CORE.
4. LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
with impartial suffrage, will guard tho
rights of all citizens mora securely than
any centralized power. Tho pcoplo and
tho public wclfaro require the SUPRE
MACY OF THE CIVIL OVER THE
MILITARY AUTHORITY and
FREEDOM OF PERSON UNDER
TOE PROTECTION OF THE HA
BEAS CORPUS. Wo demand for the
individual tho largest liberty consistent
with publio order, for tho state self-government,
and for tho nation a return to
tho methods of ponce and the constitu
tional limitations of power.
"TRUE AH PREAV1IIM1."
0. Tho civil service of tho government
has become a mere instrument of partisun
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 tho
perpetuity of republican government.
THEREFORE A WINE DEMAND.
C. Wo therefore regard u THOROUGH
REFORM OF THE CIVIL SERVICE
as ono of the most pressing necessities of
the hour; that honesty, capacity and fldel
ity constitute the only valid claims to pub
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
TARIFF SIUBNTIOM HIIOVED AH1DE.
7. Wo demand a systom of federal tax
ation which shall not unnecessarily inter
fere with tho industry of the people, and
which shall provMo tho means necessary
to pay tho expenses of the government,
economically administered the pensions,
iuu interest on wio puuuc auul anu a mod
erate annual reduction of the principal
thereof, and recognizo that thoro aro in

i!mM"m1 Patriot celt tens, with
'Sgmm to. previous political affiliation
A colored voter of Cincinnati, who
draws a comparison between Grant and
Greeley, In tho 'Commercial,' says that as
between tho two, ho and many of his
colored brethren will support Grocley.
Ho puts his reason for so doing in this
way :
"Whlln I regard General Grant for
fosterlnc our riihta and bolieva ho has
endeavored to administer thu covornment
In such a mannor as to promoto tho best
interests of tho people, yet it wero ungrate
ful for me, whllo Jrlnklnc from the
streams of liberty, to forget tho fountains
irom wucneo tiioso streams liavo come.
When I recall the part and look over tho
list of thoso noblo heroes who dared to
assort tho truth and defend tho right nnd
plead tho bond-man's cause, I II nd the
namoof Horace Greeley there; but tho
name of Grant is missing.
GUESS THEREON, WHOLLY
E OF EXECUTIVE INTEllFER.
B AND DICTATION.
Much comment on this tido tho water
has been excited by the transatlantic
journey of tho son and daughter of tho
president. It cannot be denied that Grant
has a right to send his children abroad If
ho wants to, but tho circuinstnucvs under
which both have visited foreign shores, ap
pear to havo impressed tho Amorican pco
plo with a strong senso of tho want of
tact and dolicacy shown by Oon. Grant.
It is all right for Miss Nollie Grant to bo
prosentcd to tho queen of England, and
for Llout. Fred to dlno with the sultan of
Turkey, but there is somothlng oil'ensivo
to democratic tastes in tho former being
spoken of by English nowspaporsas "tho
' lady of highest rank in America " and
"n royal porsonago" and in Llout. Grant
being trcatod as a young prlnco by (ho
Turkish sultan, while Gen. Sherman,
was patronized as a sort of head
traveling attendant of tho royal young
man. uen. Grant mtrjnt have chosen
a more auspicious timo for tho foreign
travels of tho young members of his fain-ily.
SitntiTLT avtkh tho Cincinnati conven
tion, it is said that Mr. Greeley character
istically remarked of Mr. Bowles, of tho
Springfield, (Mass.,) 'Republican,' that he
(Greeley) wished that ho (Uowlos) wculd
"stop that lying." Wo feel strongly in
clined to borrow Mr. Greeley's language,
and to toll the Chicago 'Times' to "stop
that lying." In tho issuo of that paper of
Wednesday morning we Und this:
That half the democrats in Southern
Illinois would not voto for Greeloy, in case
he should bo tho candidato against Grant,
is not improbable. The tenor of all
trustworthy advices from Eirvnt. certainly
is mat mere exists a very pronounced Hos
tility among democrats In that portion of
mo siaio against tno philosopher, while
iiaruiy n rcpuincan who favors lilm can
bo found in that region.
Wo tako tho liberty of asking tho
'Times if It has ever heard of William J.
Allen, ono of tho most prominent of tho
democratic lawyers of Southern Illinois
and an ox-member of congress? Has it over
heard of Hon. H. Watson Webb, another
democratic lawyer of Egypt and present
representative of Alexandor county in the
Illinois legislature? Has it uver heard of
John Q. Harman, circuit clork of Alexan
der county for sixteen years, and who was
scctetary of the late constitutional convoa-
lion of tho stato? Of S. Staats Taylor, co
trustee of tho Cairo Property Company
president of tho Cairo and St. Louis rail
road company, and a gentleman, who, in
wealth and social standing, is not below
any in tho stato? Of Captain Hambleton,
of Mound City, n gontloman of largo in
fluence In his-section, or f N. R. Cuaey,
also of Mound City, ox-member of the leg
islature? Of Captain llulliduy, and
A. 11. Sailor,. Vi.. of this
"I i-I "
oity? Of Col. Winston, of
Judge Bros, of Judge William n. Orcon,
and hosts or others, all and each of whom,
although the Chicago 'Times' may bo una
ware of tho fact, the poplu 0f Kgypt
know to bo Influential duinocrat'.c gentle
men, every ono or whom Is ontuutlastlcully
In favor of Horace Greeley? 1 the
'Times' awaro that every couuty In
Egypt has a democratic organ, and some

pers, almost without exception, ad-
vocato thoeloclionof Greeloy and Brown?
Of tho liberal republicans of this section,
wo may mention, out of a countless rami
ber, Dr. D. Arter, ono of tho pillars of tho
republican party in tho pant, Col. Lowe,
Messrs. N. L. Wlckwire, P. O. Schtih, II.

OREKLKY STOCK IK CONGRESS.
Waiwinotos, I). C, Msy 21, 187J.
The speech dclivored last week In tho
house by Hon. D. W. Voorhccs, in pppo
sltlon to tho nomination of Horaco Grco-
loy by tho Rallimoro convention, was In
tended to roll back tho Greeley wavo
which, In swooping from Cincinnati to
Baltimore, was carrying tho democratic
members of congress with it. I find that
it has not had tho desired cflcct; instead,
it has made tho south nil tho moro earnest
for Mr. Greeley's nomination. Tho dis
cussion Mr. Voorheos' speech has
evoked, has not boon at nil damaging to
tho candidato of tho liberal republicans.
It seems to mo, judging by tho facts
around mc, that tho democratic masses
have determined to get rid of tho present
administration, and when tho names of
Charles Francis Adams, Judgo Davis and
other conservative republicans, wero
talkod of ns tho probable candidates on a
coalition ticket, tho democracy, leaders
and rank and file, cheerfully accepted the
situation ; nnd none moro willingly than
tho pooplo of tho south, who thought they
saw a path out of tholr difllcu1tic. Tho
nomination of Horace Greeley was so tin
looked for that everyone hero was at sea!
but the masses having gone so far out of
the well trodden domociatlc path as to dc
slro a conservative republican, for r
special ana patriotic purpose, aro
now, in my judgment, willing to accept
ono who has heretofore boon n republican
but who on a republican platform which
Joro Black, tho distinguished statesman
says, is "broad, fair nnd democratic with
nothing passive in it,'' promises to carry
out the great object of coalltion-tho end
Ing of military usurpation and rule, cor
ruption, nnd a rest for tho south, througl
amnesty nnd freedom from negro and car
pet-bagger domlnntion in that section
Thoy being m6st aggrieved under this con
dltion of things, now demand thul tho
democracy glvo them tho means of salva
lion by indorsing Horaco Greeley at Bal
timore News roccived hero from all sec
tlons, proves conclusively that thero is a
most romarkablo rovulslon In domocrntlc
sontimcnt. Judgo Mason, of Iowa, writes
hero that half tho republicans of that stato
will voto for Groeloy, and if ho is nomi
nated at Baltimore all tho domocrats will
support him. Hon. 11. D. McIIonry, of
Kentucky, returned hero to-day from
home, nnd says that thoro is a porfect fit'
roro among old democrats thero for Groo
ley, nnd that that stato will givo 60,000
majority for Grcoley. Tho condition of
affairs politically is slmplymarvoloun, and
for a solution of It ono nocds must look tin
dor the surface. Thoso things, and I speak
of both the political partio, aro not
brought about by political leaders or tho
press, thoy being merely tho moulh-picccs
ol public sentimont which tuoyjeannot, If
they so desired, control.
HON. I. W. VOOIUIKKS.
There Is a very general feeling of re
gret expressed horo that some of tho dem
ocratic press of tho country, who Tavor
Mr. Grceloy's nomination, should havo
pormltted thomsclvos to echo tho assuults
mado upon Mr. Voorhees by Mcrs. Sher
wood, Spoar and Roosovolt, for oxerclsing
an undoubted right" in his opprnlng Mr.
Grooloy's nomination. Mr. Voorhees'
democracy is too well known to need de
fense, and such unjust personalities will
not result in good, nnd will not hell) Mr.
Greeley's chances at Baltimore.
SENATOR ALCORN ON THE KUKI.U.Y HILL,
Last evening Sonator Alcorn, of Missis
sippi, spoke on tho Kuklux bill. Ho most
ably, earnestly und eloquently opposed tho
monstrosity. Ho referred moro particu
larly to tho Stato of Mississippi, of which
ho was Governor when tho bill was pro
posed, and most clearly exposod tho falsity
of tho charges brought against that pooplo
by Ben. Butler's son-in-law, Senator Ames,
who misrepresents Mississippi in the Sen
ate This fallow finds it to bo his interest
to sorvo Grant and his henchmen by de
liberately lying about tho pooplo from
whom ho expects nothing in tho futuro,
and ho whines out stale and exploded cal
umnies couchod in tho choice langungo of
"Old Strabismus," hIs"fathor-in-law, from
whom no doubt, he receives his inspira
tions, .ilr. Alcorn proved by n recent
statemontof tho Governor or Mississippi,
that poaco roignod in that Stato, and that
thoro was no necosslty fr.r any such law.
What is truo of that stato is truo of all.
Butler's protogo lost his temper, inter
rupted Mr. Alcorn and grow quite por.
sonal, but got a good sot bick by tho cool,
solf-possossod and polished Alcorn, giving
a history of tho carpot-bag senator's Mis
sissippi career. Tho effort of last ovenlng
shows Mr. Alcorn to bo a ready dobator us
well as abrllliant orator. His unflinching
advocacy of univorsal nmnosty, his able
report in favor of a systom of lovees for
the Mississippi river, and his forciblo and
eloquent protest against thu Morrill
amendment limiting tho Jurisdiction of
tho court of claims to only thn " trooly
loll'' nil go to verify tho prediction of the
Philadelphia 'Mercury', an able demo
cratic Journal, that ho will tako tho high
position of tho great representative- man
of the South in tho United States Senate.
ADJOURNMENT.
Tho Houso yostorday, by an overwhelm
ing vote, passed tho Sonata resolution to
udjoum on tho 2'Jth of May, contemptu
ously throwing tho request of that body for'
h recall under tho table. This gives tho
Houso control of the tlmo for adjourn
ment nnd as tho Sunato can scarcely got
through tho neccssury legislation by that
time, thoy will probably vorv meekly ask
for a llttlo longer time, which tho Houso
will grant, provided they agroo to civo
over kuklux bills and "sich."
TARIFF.
The Houso settlod tho question of tarllV
yostorday In very short order. Under a
suspension of tho rules the tax and tariff
bills were passod without further amend
ment or dobato. Tho veto was nearly threo
to ono, which would indicato a very gen
oral satisfaction with it. It is just as it
was finlshod in tho committee of tho whole
with a horizontal roductloii of ten por
cent, which will raako a reduction of fifty
millions of dollars. Tho ttenalo will no
doubt accopt It as it camo from tho llousui:
any chango will not bo material, Tho I
como lax, tho tax on Illuminating gfti,
stamps on bank checks and drafts n'rtf
abolished.
THE M1MINO RECORDS.
Tho military committee hnvo ordorcd
Mr. Ucn. Pitman, who reported tho pro
ceedings of tho Buell Court of Inquiry, to
rcplaco tno records Irom his notes which
nro full nnd porfect. When this work is
dono, tho country will know in whoso In
terest these records disappeared. Lommnn
rumor has it that the "mess" and General
Grant will suffer when copies of tho stol
en records nppcar.
MORE SENATORIAL HIONITY.
A reporter for tho associated press, Mr.
"A. Dovinc, pronounced a statemontof Sen
ator Conkling's In tho Boston 'Daily Ad
vertiser' as fillip, said paper publishing
both statements. This so milled tho dig
nity of tho old muff from Maine Hnm
lln that ho offered a resolution of expul
sion against Dcvlnc. It was not nttod on.
It is a pity that when Senators deliberately
Ho, samo ns other folk do, that thero should
not bo n law passed making it treaon
to mention it. "Old Hundred" Hnmlin
had better tako a rest.

To I'M win Morton, Km., Ho. ton:
Dear Silt Thy nolo to-day is just re
ceived. In replying to it, I must premii-o
thut 1 have no intention nt this timo ol
entering into tho question of tho presidency,
further thuu to say that tho recent com
plications of this. question may ho largely
attributed to an at empt to forbid tho
right of choice of candidates to republicans
in advance of tho nominating convention,
and to tho dullborato insult to thu friends
of freedom in thu treatment of Senator
Sumner. Ah regards tho subject of thy
iniiuiry, 1 huvo no hesitation in saying
that 1 place a very high estimate upon
tho character, moral and Intellectual, of
Horaco Urceley. Ho Is u man of whom
his countrymen, irrcspcctlvo of politics,
muy well bo proud. Ho lias built up in
his sixty years a noblo reputation. Tho
poor attempts to ridicule him nnd touudor-
rate ins eminent nuintv nt tho present
time, on thu part of somo or our republi
can papers, aro beat answered by tho
culoglums bestowed upon him in their
own columns heretofore. Ho can well
alio id to smilo at tho feeble arrows of
surcasm which aro expended on his "white
great-coat," nnd rail to reach tho man be
neath it. rorsonally uu is tho most
popular man in thu United States. It is
very po.slolo tnero may be cooU reasons
why hu should not bo president, but thoy
itru not to be found in his moral character,
his intellect, ills principles, his purpose,
his knowledgo of thu inturcsts und re
sources of thu country. I havo no with,
as I havo no reason, to withhold my good
opinion of an old friend, nt n timo when
so many republicans doom it advisable, ns
a party expedient, to assail him personally
as woll as politically.
I am, very truly, thy friend,
John G. Wuittier.
