FOn VICE PRESIDENT,
B. GRATZ BROWN,
We, the Liberal Republicans of tho
United S tit tcs in Convention assembled at
Cincinnati, proclaim tho following princi
ple! as essential to Just government:
DEAD IHSVKH Bl'BIBD.
1. We rccogtiteo tho equality (of nil
men before tbe law, and hold that it is
the duty of the government in its dealings
with tbe people to mote out EQUAL AN D
JCXACT JUSTICE TO ALL, OF
COLOR OR PERSUASION, RELI
GIOUS OK POLITICAL.
:. WE PLEDGE OURSELVES TO
MAINTAIN THE UNION OF THESE
STATES, EMANCIPATION AND EN
FRiVNOlIlSEM ENT, AND TO OP
POSE ANY REOPENING OF THE
QUESTIONS SETTLED BY THE
THIRTEENTH, FOURTEENTH AND
FIFTEENTH AMENDMENTS OF
I'M VF.llNAl. AMKKNTY.
3. We demwd tho immedlato and ah
solute removal of all disabilities imposed
on account of tbe rebellion which wns
finally subdued seven years ago, believing
that UNIVERSAL AMNESTY "WILL
RESULT IN THE COMPLETE PAC
IFICATION IN ALL SECTIONS OF
DEMOCRATIC TO THE COKE.
4. LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
with impartial suffrage, will guard tho
rights of all citizens more securely than
ny centralized power. Tho pcoplo and
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. We demand for thu
individual the largest liberty consistent
with public order, for the stato K-lf-gov-eminent,
and for tho nation a return tit
the methods nf pnaco and tho constitu
tional limitations of power.
"TRUE AS l'UKAClllM;.'
6. Thu civil service oi the government
has become a mere instrument of partisun
tyranny and personal ambition, and an
object of sclfhh greed. It is a scandal
nd reproach upon free institutions, and
breeds a demoralization dangerous to thu
perpetuity of republican government.
THE H l.'1'O H E A WISE DKJIA.M).
6. We therefore regard a THOROUGH
R2F0RM OF THE CIVIL SERVICE
as one of the most pressing necessities of
the hour; thai honesty, capacity and fidel
ity constitute the only valid claims to pub
lic employment; that the offices of tho
government ceaso to bo u matter of arbi
trary favoritlim and patromiee. and that

"Lato in 183U, or early in 1833, Mr.
Lincoln wont to board at n tavern In Now

Ann Rutlcdge, tho third daughter of this
family, was at that timo about nineteen,
and was probably tho most rctlncd woman
with whom Mr. Lincoln had then over
conversed a modes t, dolicato creature, fas

with tho rude people by whom both wero
surrounded. All witnesses unito in praising
her. Mrs. Hardin Bale, a woman of thu
neighborhood who knew her well, said:
"She had auburn hair, blue eyes, fair com

tho love seems to havo cooled with his
long absence; and at length sho responded
to tho passionate nnd impetuous attach

sho must not marry until she could obtain a
roleaso from McNamar. Shu wrote to him
in vain, as she had waited in vain for his
coming; and in 183B sho died, ns some say
of brain fover, induced by her anxiety of
mind. In her cravo Lincoln was wont to

Sho seems to have taken captive tho futuro

Mr, Lincoln was a rising politician,
fresh from tho people and possessed of

tho eight hour movement is beginning to
put ou arrests attention and excites alarm.
Threats ot burning down factories and
shutting oil gas so as to bury tho city m
drirkucts and givu thieves thuir opportun
ity, shows that tho alarm Is not 111 founded.
Tho 'Herald' says: "Wo cannot afford
to havo trade riots in Now York, and wo
must not havo them. Wo call upon tho
authorities to bo upon their guard, to be
ready to act if action Is ncccssury. Tho
strikers in this city aro falling into tho
worst habits which havo disgraced tho so-
called labor movement of tho old world.
Tho history of strikes, in England particu
larly, is a history of fearful crime. Al

days, thero havo been shameful attempts
at intimidation and violence. If intimi
dation and violence are resorted to, tho
law must bo put Into operation, and tho
interests of the workingman must inevita

savs: "Oan tallsts and employers wno
submit to tho new order of things, do so
upon compulsion. One half of them, wo
aro assured, will stop business as soon as
they closu their contracts. Employers
have ceased to opposo trades-unions or
trado combinations for high wages, and
will, when interest, duty, profit or necess

either stop business, chango their business

whether ho did this by invitation of tho
stranger, or of his own volition, no ono

from his pocket, two balls from which wero
discharged, ono of them en

other tho body of Kacsbach In the region
of tho heart, producing death instantly.
Aftor having accomplished this bloodv

to a post in front of tho saloon, and rode
on ui a not vory rapid pace, meanwhile
addresving a gentleman who was standing
by and calling him bv name. It is further

which would chango tbe nomes from
discomfort to comfort and health. And,
strange to say, these two, which aro por

on separate continent', but in tho same
street, and often under tho same roof."
What a mistaken prldo it is which keeps
girls in poverty or plunges them into
