FOR VICE PRESIDENT, -
B. GRATZ BROWN,
We, tho Liberal Ilcpublicans of the
United States In Convention assembled ul
Cincinnati, proclaim tho following princi
ple at essential to just government:
DEAD IHftUKN IiVKIKD.
1. We recognlzo tho equality of nil
men before tho law, and hold thnt It is
the duty of tho government in Its dealings
with the people to mete out EQUAL AND
EXACT JUSTICE TO ALL, OF
COLOR OR PERSUASION, RELI
GIOUS OK POLITICAL.
2. WE PLEDGE OURSELVES TO
MAINTAIN THE UNION OF THESE
STATES, EMANCIPATION AND EN
FRANCHISEMENT, AND TO OP
POSE ANY REOPENING OF THE
QUESTIONS SETTLED II Y THE
THIRTEENTH, FOURTEENTH AND
FIFTRENTH AMENDMENTS OF
3. Wo demand tho immediate and fib
solute removal of all disabilities imposed
on account of tho rebellion which wus
finally subdued seven years ugo, believing
that UNIVERSAL AMNESTY WILL
RESULT IN THE COMPLETE PAC
IFICATION IN ALL SECTIONS OF
DEMOCRATIC TO TIIK COKE.
4. LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
with impartial suflrngo, will guard tlio
rights of all citizens mora securely tlimi
any centralized power. The pcoplo und
the public welfare require the SUPRE
MACY OF THE CIVIL OVER THE
MILITARY AUTHORITY and
FREEDOM OF PERSON UNDER
THE PROTECTION OF THE HA
BEAS CORPUS. Wo domand for the
individual tho largest liberty consistent
with public order, for tho stile self-government,
and for tho nation a return to
the methods of pnuco und tho constitu
tional limitations of power.
"TUl'i: AN I'KEACIIINM."
C. Tho civil 6orvico of tho government
has become a mere instrument of partisan
tyranny and personal ambition, and un
object of selflsh greed. It Is u scundal
and reproach upon free Institutions, and
breeds a demoralization dangerous to tlio
perpetuity of republican government.
TIIEREFOHEA WINE DEMAND.
C. Wo theroforo regard it THOROUGH
REFORM OF THE CIVIL SERVICE
as ono ot the most pressing necessities of
the hour; that honesty, capacity and fldol
ity constituto the only valid claims to pub
lic employment; UiuV tlio oiUecs of the
government cense to bo a matter of urbl
trary favoritism and pnlromigu, and that
public station become again tho post of
honor. TO THIS END IT IS 1MPER
ATIVELY REQUIRED THAT NO
PRESIDENT SHALL BECOME A
CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION.
TARIFF QUESTION 8IIOVED AMIDE.
7. Wo demand a system of federal tax
ation which shall not unnecessarily inter
fere with tho industry of tho people, and
wblcb shall provide tho means necessary
to pay the expenses of tho government,
economically administered tho pensions.
the interest on tho public debt and n mod
erate annual reduction ol the principal
thereof, and recognize that thero aru in

ferences of opinion with regard to tlio re

IN THEIR CONGRESSIONAL DIS
TRICTS. AND THE DECISION OF
CONGRESS THEREON, WHOLLY
FREE OF EXECUTIVE INTERFER

8. The public credit mutt be sncredly
maintained, and we DENOUNCE RE

A WORD FOR TUB NOI.DIKIt IUIYN
10. We remember with gratitude the
sacrifices of the soldiers und sudors of the
republic, and no act of ours shall ever
.detract from thoir justly earned lame, or
tne lull rewards or their patriotism.
A VAUNT, LAND HOnilEKN I
11. We are opposed to all further grunts
of Und to railroads or other corporations.
THE PUBLIC DOMAIN SHOULD HE
HELD SACKED TO ACTUAL SET
TLERS. LIBERAL f-OHEItiN POLICY.
12. We hold that it is tlio duty of the
government in its intercourse with foreign
nations to cultivate friendships of peace
by treating with all on fair and equal
terms, regarding it aliku dishonorable
either to demand what is not right or sub
mit to what Is wrong.

WM Ptlnclples'and the support of
the candidates nomluated by this conven
tion, we invite and cordially welcome tho
cooperation of all putriotlc citizens, with

A FAVORITE argument with radical
papers, and ono which has bcon used until

been such as would have retained for
Grant tho kindly sentiments of the
Massachusetts senator. But If every word
uttered by him ngalnsl the president had
its foundation in personal hatred, nnd
were still truo and unanswerable, Its force
remains the samo nnd It should and will

At that time, an informal meeting was
held, when a dispatch was roud from tho
(New YorlcC'3rresiondeiice CIiIchko Tribune.
Tho story or Tommy Nast's artistic ca
reer Is a little peculiar. His father was a
professional musician, nnd when 1 first
knew Tommy, the old ucntleman was
blowing thut extension brass, phovo-out-
and-pull-bnck-lorcc-pump son ot old-lash
ioned horn thoy used to havo In bands (a
friend says it is called a trombone), in tho
orchestra of Wnllack's old theater, corner
of Broom nnd uroadway, ut Slu a week
Nast senior, wanted Tommy lo becomo a
musician, and, to that end used to thrash
him with ii leather strap most enthusiast!
cully and faithfully, in urder to mako him
learn the scales on tho violin. Thomas,
however, had a genius for drawing and
knew it. Ho used to bet; his father to
permit him to becomo an artist, to all of
which tho conscientious old Merman (now
many years doad) would reply with add!
tionul doses of strap.
Atlast, young Thomas becamo acquaint
ed with Mr. Berghaus, now, and for moro
than ndozen years, one ot j-runK Leslie s
chief artists; and to Berghaus, who was
ulsd a German, ho confided all his woes
Ho showed his drawings to Bvrghaus, and
to Sol. Eytmge, who is one ot our most
delicate and taiicllul draughtsmen, und
who wus at thut tlmo with Leslie; and
tlicv. seeini; there wus really somuthini: in
tho boy, then 11 years old, advised lnm to
continue In bis eiiorts to convince ins
father that he could cam moro money as
an artist than as n musician.
Tommy went homo that night, and to
the Uerman parent, having come homo ul
vi m. (midnight), he mus remarked :
"Father, I must bo ap artist. If you let
mo go und learn to drnw, in a year or two
I can earn $'10 a week ; und, in u few
years after that, I can bring in from 530
to $70 every wcex; n you rnaKO mo icurn
music, 1 may slave nil my life, and I
shull very likely find myself ut DO years
old just where you aro now, playing for
ten poor dollars u week in somebody's
bund, liable to a discharge any minute, and
out of an engagement a quarter of tho
year, oven when things are at their best.
Whether it was tho argument or tho
determination of young Nast to learu to
draw in spito ol tho paternal
forbidding that carried the point,
1 know not; certain it is,
however, that, tho next day, Tommy Nast
entered Frank Leslie's employ, nnd was as
signed a desk between Berghaus and
tytinge, which two thorough artists and
amiable gentlemen gave Nast all tho reg
ulur instruction ho has ever had.
Tiinvoune- nrtlst more than Kent his
word; In less than a year ho could earn,
not $20, but thrico that, on Leslie's paper
alone, besides making as much more on
outside work. His father lived to see that
his son was right, und to see that son
bringing home his hundred dollars In gold
every Saturday night, whilo he was humbly
toiling away for tho samo old hardly eurned
Nast's mother is u thorough German, n
most estimable woman, I am told, und
excellent mother, -but flio cannot speak,
or could not when I saw her tint and last,
a dozen words of English.
Several years ago Nast was introduced
to an English family, consisting ot tho
father, mother, son, and three daughters.
The mother is n lino specimen of the
thoroughbred English lady, and her
daughters aro like unto her. Tho mother
is an aunt of James 1'urton, tho biogra
pher ho who has written the lives of An
drew Jackson, Aaron Burr, Horace Gree
ley, etc. Tho eldest daughter, Sullie, of
th'is lady, (Mrs. Edwards), Mr. Thomas
Nast married somo nino years ago, They
have had three children ; all, I think,
now living. So, you see, if the caricatur
ist dies ho leaves abundant material for a

MENT AND WILL SUri'OKT THE TICKET.
A member of tho stun" of tho New Or
leans 'Republican' recently questioned
General Longstreet concerning his views
on the pending Issues. The general re
viewed his own action In resigning from
tho surveyorship and explained why ho
could not consistently, us a republican,
sustain tho party represented by General
Grant. In his opinion the Cincinnati
nominees are tho truo republicans, and us
such should receive the suffrages of the re
publican party. Traversing tho outrages
perpetrated by tho administration party
In Louisiana, tho gcnoral said :
"Louisiana, ono of tho states recon
structed under republican legislation, und
having tho samo government that she hud
when received into tlio community of
states, with co-equal privileges and im
munities, must havo beon republican in
her government when the federal officers
essayed, In January last, to overthrow her
civil authority. Now, tho reconstruction
measures huvlng been ratified by tho
people, they should rcccivo tho respect
and observance of ul I who claim to bo truo
republicans. Then, ifthoro uro any truo
republicans in Louisiana, thoy must be
found among thoso who, at tho hazard of
their lives, maintained tho law und repub
lican institutions. While, on the other
hand, it appears that tho federalists who
conspired together for tho purposo of sup-
piunting mo statu government subverted
tho reconstruction laws, scttlni; un a new
und unauthorized government, are riot re
publicans In spirit."

A GORGEOUS EDITOR.
From the Washington IlepuUiciD
-Mr. Whltelaw Held, -Mr. Urcelcy's
young man, was in tlio citvlust week. He
stopped at the Arlington Hotel, and at
tracted universal attention by tho beauty
of his person and tho gorgeousness of his
apparel, llo woro a mugiiltlceut maroon
colored velvet coat, a while satin Vest
trimmed with ruflles and point lace, a blue
neck-lle, an immense gold chain, which
went twico around his neck und Tell cracc.
fully over his snow-while shirt-bosom,
resplendent with three precious stones ot
enormous vniuo, namely, and emerald, o
diamond cluster and a inacniflcont ruby,
His pantaloons-n delicnte shade of ashes
of roses were cut In tho latest Parisian
style, and strapped tightly over putent
leather shoes, stiched with yellow silk
thread. Ho woro a white silk hat a com
pliment to his distinguished chief gloves
to match his pantaloons, and a slender
enno with a handleof ivory and gold. Mr.
Rcid was the observed of all observers on
the avenue; thousands of admiring eyes
followed him wherover no went, lie made
an immense sensation at tho capitol.
Doors flow open at his approach, and tho
crowds of lobbyists, congressmen and
other vulgar people who lounge around
tho halls and corridors instinctively mudo
way for hirn as he approached. Wherever
ho passed tho air was filled with a sweet
fragranco and pcrfumo; an angelic smile
played around his classic mouth, disclos
ing a set of pearl v teeth; his hair was
dressed a la Pompnduur, frizzed at the sides
and curled and parted behind. Washing
ton has rarely i-een so much loveliness
and beauty and perfection as Mr. Reid in
his person and attire exhibited last week.
