"NVc, tho Liberal Republicans of tho
United States In Convention assembled nt
Cincinnati, proclaim tho following princl
pies as essential to Just government:
DEAD ISalTEN BL'HIKD.
1. We recognlzo tho equality of nil
men beforo tho law, nnd hold that it is
the duty of tho government in its dealings
with the people to mete out EQUAL AN D
EXACT JUSTICE TO ALL. OF
WU ATE VE It NATIONALITY, HACK,
COLOR Oil PERSUASION, RELI
GIOUS OR POLITICAL.
2. WE PLEDGE OURSELVES TO
MAINTAIN THE UNION OF THESE
STATES, EMANCIPATION AND EN
FRANCHISES! ENT, AND TO OP
POSE ANY REOPENING OF THE
QUESTIONS SETTLED BY THE
THIRTEENTH, FOURTEENTH AND
FIFTKENTU AMENDMENTS OF
3. Wo demand tho immediato and ab
solute removal of all disabilities imposed
on account of tho rebellion which was
finally subdued seven years ago, Lelieving
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 the
rights of all citizens more securely than
any centralized power. The people nnd
tho public welfare require tho SUPRE
MACY OF THE CIVIL OVER THE
MILITARY AUTHORITY and
FREEDOM OF PERSON UNDER
THE PROTECTION OF THE HA
BEAS CORPUS. Wo demand for 0m
individu.il the largest liberty consistent
with public order, for tho stuto self-government,
and for the nation a return to
the methods of pnaco nnd tho constitu
tional limitations of power.
"TRUE AN I'REACIIINO."
6. The civil service of tho government
has become a mere instrument of partisan
tyranny and personal ambition, and un
object of selfish greed. It is ii scandal
and reproach upon free Institutions, nnd
breeds a demoralization dangerous to tho
perpetuity of republican government.
THEREFORE A WINE DEMAND.
6. We therefore regard n THOROUGH
REFORM OF THE CIVIL SERVICE
u one of tho most pressing necessities of
the hour; thai honesty, capacity and fidel
ity conslituto the only valid claims to pub
lic employment; that the offices of tho
government cease to bo a matter of arbi
trary favoritism and patronage, and that
public station become again tbo post of
honor. TO THIS END IT IS IMPER
ATIVELY REQUIRED THAT NO
PRESIDENT SHALL BECOME A
CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION.
TARIFF QCENTION HIIOVEO AH IDE.
7. Wo demand a system of federal tax
ation which shall not unnecessarily Inter
fere with tho industry of the people, and
which shall provide the means necessary
to pay tho expensos of tho government,
economically administered tlio pensions,
the interest on tbo public dobt and a mod
erate annual reduction of tho principal
thereof, and recognize that there are In
our midst honest but irreconcilable dif
ferences of opinion with regard to tho re
spective systems of protection and free

Carbondnale. June 8, S12.
Editor Cairo Mailt UutLttm t
Deau Sin: By tho kindness of somo
ono, doubtless of your office, I to-day re
ceived n copy of The Bulletin, dated
tho 2d Instant, containing a letter from
this place, In which tho wrltor, with fiend
ish mallco manifested in each paragraph,
proclaims, evidently with much soil-grot-illation,
tho nows that I had been indicted
by tho grand jury of Jackson county for
larceny of tho city seal of Carbondalo.
I writo this to thank you for tho kindly
editoriat accompanying tho publicotion of
said letter, and fur tho paper, (which I do
not tnko nnd very seldom sec) containing
That n bill charging mo with folonlously
taking tho city seal, ono key and two
books, tho property of tbo city, was pre
ferred by tho grand Jury of this county,
on tho last day of lis session, to wit, tho
29th of May ull., is truo. It is nlso true
that said bill was found upon tho testi
mony of a poor, pitiful, insignificant and
weak-minded specimen of degenerate and
corrupt humanity, who, like tho contempt
Iblo mnligner of private charactor, who
wroto tho letter you published, which ho
know at tho tlmo was promulgating
slander that had no foundation in
trulh, is n most propor nnd fitting
tool or tho post otfico cliquo in this town,
whoso mission seems to bo to defamo and
slander, crush out and destroy (not being
particular as to means used, or stopping
at perjury on occasion) any man who
dares bo independent in expressing his
views of tho doings of tho " Ring. " It is
truo further more, that on tho morning
succeeding tho finding of said bill, I de
manded of tho court then In session on
immediato trial; that Judgo Crawford
granted my request ; that on tho trial held
May 31st I provpd, and that too by tho
pliant tool of tho cllqin, (who had sworn
sufficiently strong beforo tho grand jury,
unconfronted, to effect tho object of his
mastors,) that at tho tlmo of tho pretended
stealing, I was tho duly appointed clork of
tho city council, sworn into offico by the
witness who had been tha previous clerk,
and who himself pointed out to mo tho
aforesaid seal, key and books, as being tho
property of tho city, which tho city coun
cil had authorized nnd ordered ma to
take possession of. Tho enclosed copy of
tho proceedings of a meeting held by tho
bar in attendance at our circuit court al
tho timo of the trial, will show you in
what light tho caso was viewod by honor
able attorneys Irrespective of political feol
ing. It would bo, it seems, but fair to me,
that this paper shall find a place in your
dally, so that tbo effect of tho venomous
Icttor you published may bo in somo
mcasuro ccuntcracted by this antidoto

(From tli I'eorla Hevlcw.)
It is believed thnt tho mystery which,
.'or noarly a year, has surrounded tho
murder of Hon. Sharon Tyndalo, Ex
Secretary of state, is nbout to be dispelled.
Ever sinco Mr. Tyndalo's tragic death
experienced dotcctlves havo been at work
using all tho nrts and devices known to
fraternity to obtain n cluo to tho perpe
trators of that horrible crime. Sometimo
sinco that was believed to bo a traco to tho
guilty parties was dlscovorcd, ond now It
is thought ovidenco has been accumulstcd
sufficient to convict said parties of tho
crlmo. Tho menacalnst whom this ovi

siderable sum of money in this city, nbout
