"TRUE AN PIIEACM1XU."
0. Tlio civil sorvico of tho government
has bocomo a mero instrument of partisan
tyranny and personal ambition, and tin
object of selfish greed. It Is a scandal
and reproach upon free institutions, and

ATIVELY REQUIRED THAT NO

VooniiEKs cannot forglvo Orcclcy bo-

ho can forgive, as Greoley has long for
given, tho men of tho south who rendered
tho march "On to Richmond I" necessary.
The malicious chargo that cx-Prcsldcnt
Androw Johnson had seduced and driven
to insanity and suicldo the postmistress of
Greenville, Tennessee, has been disproved.
And thus Johnson is preserved to ut in all
his Innoccnco and chastity.
It (is said that Horatio Seymour de
nies ho haa declared for Horaco Greeley
Hon.S. 8. Cox reported that Seymour had
so declared; but no person will bo tur-
prlted at tho contradiction. Seymour is
one of tho timid men of tho democratic
party, and ovcrybody expected ho would
bo dumb as an oyster. If ho has declared
for II. G. wo shall mark down tho fact as
ono of tho wonders of tho campaign.

JOHN NOBLE, OF
If thero It a gentleman moro devoted to
'principlo" than bluff John Noble, once
of tho Paducah 'Herald,' wo should liko to
look at him, and, if tbo schemo wero feas
ible, secure him as tho chlof ornament In u
cabinet of quaint and curious old-fashioned
things, played out long since, which we
havo now in course of preparation. Even
tho Honorable Alexandor Henry Stephens
and tho Uonorablo Daniel Whangdoudle
Voorhoes, although unrivalled in their
way, being politicians of the most highly
fossilized kind, palo thoir unoQ'ectual Ares
when they hold up their tapers of princi
plo in contrast with that of Noble, which
burns with a light equalled by fow and ox-
celled by nono. In short, It blazes.
Wo mako theso remarks with prido. If
thero is anything wo admire it it devotion
to Democratic principles, and John in
this regard suits us to a T. Thore aro
somo men changefuller than tho sleek pur
ple of a pigeon's wing, but John is as
changeless as the etornul hills. What he
onco believed ho now boliuves, and what
ho now believes ho will always bolluvc.
Somebody has said that tho divine institu
tion cf slavery has been destroyed, but
Noble"knows this to bo a baso Abolition
falsehood, gotten up for tho ostciiBlblu pur
poso of defeating tho Unterriflcd Democ
racy in old Kentucky and other Domo-
cratic strongholds. Tho man who
was ' onco a Republican is In his
estimation a continued enemy of tho
South. Repentance can do him no good.
Salt cannot savo him. Ho is us good as
damned. John will swear to you on tho
slightest provocation that John C. Cal
houn's reputation Is moro honorable than
Washington's and that John Wilkes
Booth is a saint, now soated closo to the
throno. He hat no doubt that one South
erner can wallop tlvo or a dozen Yankees,
and that tho Southern Confederacy will
yet achlevo Its tndopondenco and tako its
place among tho oatlont of tho earth. Of
courtc, John is jutt now in ocstacics ovor
tho foolish utterances of Voorhees, and it
attempting to Imitate that wishwashy
statesman's effort to obtain notoriety.
Therefore, John has rushed into print,
and through the Paducah ' Nows ' bus
proclaimed hit eternal hostility to Greo
ley, Good heavens! how tho noblo Noblo
slashes nboutl Ho goes into H. G. at
Bill Nyo wont into tho Heathon Chlnoo,
and denounces him to tho top of his bent.
Easy, John, easy ; don't bo rash. Apply

to bo reasonable. At ull ovotits, be calm I

Everybody who cats broad in America
hat hcaid of Cyrus II, McCormlck, tho
great reaper and mower Inventor; and
everybody who hm paid attention to tlio
political events of the country knows that
this samo McCormlck has been ono of
tho warmest friends or the South. During
tho war ho was a target at which tho
ultra loyal flung thrcatt and insults, Hnd
oftor tho war ho stepped forward and
with 11 liberality that challenged univers

with $r0,0G0. It will astonish no person
who knows how unselfish Is Mr. McCor
mlck's sympathy with the south, and how
practically he goes to work in his efforts
to relieve tho states of that section from
the curse of Radicalism, to learn that ho
is now ono of the most zealous among
tho Democratic friends of Mr. Greoley,
A letter under his signature, published
this morning in unother column of tho
Bulletjh, will bo read with Interest, and
prove conclusively that Mr. McCormlck
Is a sagacious politician as well at an un
tblflih philanthropist nnd patriot. Ho
Unable to longer in tllenco abido the
peltingt of tho pitiless storm which Lis
foolish speech in tho House brought down
upon his head, Hon. D. W. Voorhees hur
ried to Terra Haute last week, and on
Saturday night, beforo a largo company of
friends, attempted to vindicate his covert
allianco with Gen. Grant's clique. But
his effort was a failure a flat failure.
Ills arguments In favor of a regular
nomination at Baltimore aro briefly as
1. Tho division in the Republican
party makes a Democratic triumph in No
vember certain. Mr. Voorhees does not
believe this assertion to bo true, or else
is not the sagacious politician ho is re
puted to bo. Ho must know, that a Dem
ocratic nomination, If it threatened to
command tbo united support of the party,
would shatter tho Liberal organization
and render it poworlctt ; but no nomina
tion tho Dcmocraticconvcntlon could make
would unlto tho Democratic party. There
aro thoutandt of Democrats indeed, in
our opinion, a majority of tho party, who
would not now voto for nny Democratic
candidate in preferenco to Greeley.
2. "Mr. Greoley hat, In times past,
'abused tho Democratic party, and called
'such mon as Horatio Soymour liars and
' traitors," exclaims Mr. Voorhees. Vory
well; so ho has; but doos Mr. Voorhees
proposo lo never forget this fact? Will
he drivo out of Democratic fellowship all
men who havo abused tho Democratic
party ? Has bo forgotton that tho Demo
cratic party has bcon a minority party
during twelvo years that a majority of
tho American pooplo havo been abusing
the Democratic party and traducing its
leaders? Will he now, in pique, refuso
to assoclato with thoso old-time polit
ical enemies ? Docs ho prefer Radical sue
cess to u substantial Democratic victory,
won by alliunco with old-timo truducors ?
If to, ho is a very foolish man, and his ad
vice should have no weight with nny sen
3. "Tho Democrats cannot support
Greeloy becauso bo is iu favor of negro
equality," protests Mr. Voorhees. Well,
tho reply to tills is : wo havo fought that
phantom too long already. Tho Demo
crats havo, wo believe, arrived at that
stago of development where n white man
docs not fear social equality. This worn
out cry will havo no effect. If tho Radi
cals aro ever driven from powor, thoro
must bo no attempt on tho part of tho
Democrats to refuso to att with olectnrs
who have voted and labored to sccuro tho
equality of all men beroro tho law. Mr.
Voorheo must sock a moro dangerous
weapon than this with which to belabor
4. " Mr. Greeloy is in favor of central
ization, and tho system of reconstruction
which has wrought ruin to tho south," it

Voorhoes to tho Liberal candidate In

groat injustice. Mr. Greeloy has, wo know,
entertained incendiary ideas of govern
ment, and in his enthusiasm has advocated
doctrines dangerous nnd not to bo en

ley responsible for all political doctrines
which havo been advocated by his
'Trlbuno,' nnd we should look rather to
what ho now professes than to what ho

publishing tho accompanying snori 11010,
just received from Horace Greeley;
Niw Tom rmtivr )
Niw Yuaa.Msy 13.1STJ. )
My Dear Sir: I thank vou for your
kind note of the 10th. "
I know that the Cincinnati movement af
fords a basis for a genuine and hearty re
union of our whole neotilo. How long I
have labored, and what sacrifice.'' I have
made for that end, vou partlv know. If It
fails now, I hopo not to bo hlameJ. With
kind regard', etc., yours, truly,
Hon. C. H. McCormick .
The sentiments brietlv cxnrceJ in this
private note, presents in my judgment,
the htti-nott to the dtmotraey in ibis pru
dential content: "a genuine and hearty re
union of our xehole people. ' With this
from Horace Greeley, on tho platform
adopted by the Cincinnati convention,
what better, I submit, can the democratic
party de're, on any compromise bails, be
twee'n them and the liberal lepublicans
for defeating the present party in power,
than the success of the Cincinnati ticket.
On the day of tho anmsuncemetit of th
Cincinnati nominations, n prominent re
publican of this city, (friendly to Mr.
Greeley's election, though a free trade
man), remarked to me that he thought .Mr.
Greeley might yet hold the righCto the
exercUo of tho veto power, a president,
on all questions. Mr Greeley's words
have since settled, us 1 then thought,' the
reverse of this, lie U, by tho platform so
far proposed by himself, fairly pledged to
non-interference on his part, "with tne ta
riff quettion. Now, I ropent, ns no objec
tor bus yet questioned the honi'Sty of Mr.
Greeley as u politician, why bhouid demo
crats longer hesitate to make, in his elec
tion, a certain succcsi.
At the democratic convention in Now
York, four vcars airo. it was stated by
many delegates from Illinois, that Judgo
Chute could not receive the democratic
voto of tho Wctt, if nominated.
This action ot western ueinocratx, 1 be
lieve, prevented tho nomination and elec
tion of Chase, and caused tho retirement
of General Grant from Ills military posi
tion at tlio head ot the government, where
ho should havo remained. 11 was true
that Chase's election then would not have
been made certain by tho democratic noin
nation. It is new certain that tho indorsement
of Greeloy by the Baltirnoro convention
will elect him. Cha'e's election iu 18G8
would havo secured all that could reasona
bly iu tho then situation have been ex
pcctcJ of n conservative president. G roe
ley's election cannot fail totccuru as much
now. Let us not, then, under such cir
cumstances, risk another suicide.
Somo democratic papers say that every
man ha tho right to discuss freely any
nominee for a public ofllce; and the demo
crats must not bo expected to support nny
man for tho presidency without his boing
subject to just political criticism, as woll
as a nomination by tho Baltimore demo
cratic convention. But tho difference bo-
tweon theso papers nnd somo other demo
cratic journals, 111 tlio proaoni political
situation, unncars to bo that while they
say they will support tho Cincinnati tiekot,
should it bo adopted by tho Baltimore
convention, thoy exoit themselves iu the
meantime toprovontlho Cincinnati nom
inees from receiving that nomination, re-
s'ntiiui to thn extent of their ability, ull
efforts to secure for them tho nomination,
through tlio most important and potent
instrumentality by which that is to bo se
cured, viz : tlio press 01 the country.
Ono word further, with reference to tho
sentiment in Mr. Greeley's lottor : " How
lone: 1 havo labored, and what sacrifices I
have niudo for that end, you partly know."
I can honestly say that, with some oppor
tunity for judging uncompromisingly
with Mr. Greeley in his genoral political
creed, I have long been satisfied of his
earnest desire, sinco the settlement by tho
war of the now dead political issues, that tho
whole people of tho country should again
bo united, us thoro seemed to bo no good
reason now why that should not bo so; and
that he has not only desired, but bus la
bored much for the promotion of this groat
end. To my mind, tho vory best evi
dence of m sacrifices ho has made in that
cause, is 10 bo lounu in 1110 maniy, noin
and oven defiant manner In which every
body knows ho has ehown bis readiness, In
this respect, to provo his faith by his
works. Vory respectfully vours,
Cyrus H. McCormick.

Reporter. Will tlio southern delegates
to tho Baltimore convention support his
General Pryor. They aro pledged lo
do that. My idea is and I know it is
shared very generally by tho Southern
people that tho democratic party cannot
consistently und in honor nominaiu tin in
dependent candidate, becauso, by every
form of manifestation, they declared nnd
pledged themselves, iuforo tho meeting of
the Cincinnati convention, that if the lib
eral republicans would organize and nom
inate an Independent ticket, tho demo
cratic party would not nominate any
ticket, but would support tho candidates
of tho liberal republicans. Tho nomina
tion of Horace Greeley is acceptable to the
democracy. Not a tingle democratic Jour
nal or representative democrat, north or
south, has even Intimated that they would
not support Greeley. It is idle to say,
"Wo won't support Mr. Greeloy, becauso
his principles uro not exclusively
democratic. Wo knew, of curie,
that the liberal republicans would
not nominate n man whoso pre
cise political opinions were uuts.
Wu supposed that the liberal republicans
would nominated republican. Now, Mr.
Greeley Is us acceptable to u as any man
Reporter. Then you bcllevo the South,
as well as every other portion of thu
country, has good reason to support Mr.
General Pryor. Certalnlv. Hccauso
he is iu favor of universal nmncv and
against any further proscription of South
ern meu. I have reason lo know, having
trawled there, that the feeling of the
South Is overwhelmingly iu favor of Mr.
Greeley's nomination. I have heard,
however, that a few Democratic politi
cian are in (avor of putting u straight
ticket in the Arid.
Ri-porter. If a straight Democratic
ticket should be nominated, what do you
think would be the result?
General l'rvor. A straight ticket would
l.e nominated only in thu intere'ts of
Grant, because It would servo no other
end. Thu leaders of the Democratic party
and thu Southern people know that well.
Mr. Greelev, no doubt, accepted the nom
ination with the understanding that all
classes opposed to thu Administration
would go for him.
Reporter. Arothoroany influences at

tion from accepting M r. Greeley's nomi
General Pryor. Tho old leaders tho
moro Bourbons of thn Democratic purtv
aro at work very industriously to accom
plish that object.
Kcporter. Uan you name nny of them?
General Pryor. I can name "one.
Reporter. Who is he?
General Pryor. Mr. August Belmont.
He is oppoed to Greeley, because all his
(lielmont's) Interests are with thu Ad
ministration, lielmout represents tho
syndicate Ho has large dealings with
the treasury department, bonce ho will
not go aga'inst Grant, but will do his best
to aid him, by advocating tho nomination
of 11 straight ticket.
Reporter. Do you think ho will suc
Gon. Pryor. I do not. I feel assured
that not only the southern, but nearly all
thn delegates to tho Baltimore convention
will go for Creole. Mr. Belmont bus
not an impulse nor u conviction In sympu
thy with tho democratic party. As for
tho couth, they will go solid "lor Horace
Greeley, because, unliko Grant, ho recog
nizor the war ub over, and all its issues as
settled becauso ho is willing to ignoro
the past, und tako a new departure on tlio
basis ot a united and pacillc country.
Tho election of Grant means proscription
and class legislation the election of Gree
