olute removal of all disabilities imposed
on account of tho rebellion which was
finally subdual seven years ngo, believing
that UNIVERSAL AMNESTY WILL

IFICATION IN ALL SECTIONS OF

4. LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
with impartial suffrage, will guard tho
rights of all cltiznns moro securely than
any centralized power. The people and
tho publicwelfare require tlio SUPRE
MACY OF THE CIVIL OVER THE
MILITARY AUTHORITY nnd
FREEDOM OF PERSON UNDER
THE PROTECTION OF THE HA

individual tho largest liberty consistent
with public order, for tho state self-government,
and for tho nation a return to
the methods of pnaco and tho constitu
tional limitations of power.
"TIlL'i: AS I'KEAt'lII.MJ."
6. The civil se:vico of tho government
has become a mere instrument of partisan
tyranny and personal ambition, and nn
object of selfish greed. It is a scandal
and reproach upon free institution!, and
breeds a demoralization dangerous to the
perpetuity of republican government.

REFORM OF THE CIVIL SERVICE

V. Darling were olectcd. Throo of theso

and old Dan tho scheme was
concocted, that tho election for
mayor should bo prevented, and that
Mr. Brydun should bo chosen by tho
council ns acting mayor. Accordingly,
tho Saturday previous to tho election for
mayor, these gentlemen rganized them
selves into it council and elected Brydcn
acting mayor nnd old Dan clerk and at
torney. This wns dane, mark you, beforo
tho outgoing board had tl.ilshcd their bus

Now, n word regarding Daniel's perse
cution. Beforo your time, Mr. Bui.lkti.v,
but yet not so long since, but that
it is fresh in tlio minds of many
in this community, Brush was prosecuted
by Judgo Jinkins for slander. Thnt
Julgo Jenkins was ono of tho greatest
and best men Illinois over produced, fow
will deny; but. yet ho was compolled to
take refugo behind the law from Brush's
filthy tonguo nnd pen. Again, tho Grand
Jury room bus been usod by Dan. Brush
to gratify personal mulice at almost every
term of court, for ten, perhaps twentv
ears past. But a littlo over u year ago,
ho tried to havo Judgo Lemma indicted for
mulfeasatico in office sending into tho
ury two legnl cap pages of law and in
ductions, but never whispering a word of
tlio law under which Mr. Lcuima win
lucted and held his office. Wns this un
honorable, high-minded wav to treat a
oung brother uttorney? Again, but a
short timo ago, ho went before the gland
ury and caused eight indictments to bo
found against Billy Greenwood, a coloied
man, for periury. Billv's ollenco was
simply signing affidavits of citizenship for
unregiMereu voters. Mr. Henry Bucklos,
a neighboring fanner, was also indicted
ror the sumo offence. When these indict
menu wcro brought into court, thov were
kicked out by thu Judge in an unceromo
nluus manner. AV,IS it Christinn-liko and
high-toned to endeavor to send a pour col
"red man to jail for months V Yet, that
was honest Dan. ilrut,h s object, as Billv's

OUR ST. LOUIS LETTER.

St. lA)iii June nth, IS72,
Tho past wook has been n gaico ono for
St. Louis. Never within tlio history of
tho city or its oldest InhabitcnU hns it
been so decorated with flags, banners,
evergreens, festoons, wreaths, mottoes &c,
Tho National Saongcrfest has proved un
immonso succes, nnd St. Louis hns been
awarded tho palm over all tho proceeding
festivals. Tho procession on Wcdnesdny
was immense. Imngino a compact mass o
human beings on the move, marching
never less thun four abreast, nnd from that
to full pluttoons, by tho military, nnd
reaching from the Htono Depot to Mound
City and you hnvo somo idea of its mngnl
lude. From whero wo witnessed tho pro
cession it wns precisely two hours nnd ten
minutos in passing, wo counted no less
than twenty-six bands of music in addi
tion to which nt intorvnls some of tho
societies would break out with tho
" Wntch on tho Rhino " accompanied by
their bands, tlio effect of which was very
fine. Thu route was about seven miles in
length, nnd tho entiro distance was crowded
with spectators, not only tho streets, but
tho windows, trees, nnd oven housetops.
No American in tlio city but what will
understand tho word " Willkommon
which greets you at every tuno while
every street nnd nearly every houso nlong
tho whole seven miles was profusely
decorated with American and German
flags, evergreens nnd mottoes. The
Southern hotel looked magnificently, tho
flags, Prussinn and German being sus
pended from each window around the en
tiro building. On the balconies wcro hung
chineso lanterns whicb, when lighted at
night, gavo a gay appearanco to tlio
place. Tho Slngor Sowing Machlno Co.,
had a largo nnd unique banner stretched
across tho slreot with tho words "Tbo
Singer wolcomes tho Sacnger, " which

passed boncnth it. Last evening wo at

persons were present. Tho opening over

dred nnd sixty instruments gnvo us n
forctasto of what was to follow.
Soon the chorus roso from their soats
fifteen hundred men good and true. Tbo
conductor struck tho chords on the piano,
then left it, mounted his stand, took his
"baton" and gave tho signal to com
mence. The effect can bo Imagined but
not easily described. The chorus large as
it was, was under complcto control, and
tho singing was grand. At tbo conclusion
a roundof deafening applause which could
be heard squares away, brought the cho
rus again to their feet und tho " Freedom
of Song" was given with even moro pow
erful effect than before. Wo then enjoy

Thu Master Cnr Buildors' Association of
tho United Stutes havo been holding their
annual session bore during '.the week.
They number over ono hundred, and havo
received many attentions from tho hands
of our citizens. Their next meeting will

Tho public schools havo all held their
nnnual examinations during tho week, and
tho 'JO.000 schoolchildren after to-day will
be as free us tho birds of tho air for tho
next two months.
Tho warm woathor fur the nast few davs
has hud tho efluet to hasten tho dopnrturo
of many of our citizens, who, with their
families, will, during the hot term, hlo to

the brilliant summary of its platform to

very presence of those mon wus nlon
significant of victories already achieved

distance which tho nation had traveled be
twecn tho years 1856 and 1872,
But crnnd as has been its record, tho He
publican party rests not on its past alone,
It looks to tho futuro nnd grupplcs with
its problems of duty and danger. It pro
poses, ns tho objects ot its inimcdiato uc
complishment, complcto liberty uud oxact

also placed on rccoed tbo opinion and pur
poses of tho party in favor of umnesty,
against all forms of repudiation, and en
dorsed the humane and peaceful policy of
the administration In repurd to tho In
dians. But whilo clearly defining and distinctly

party on these questions of practical
legislation una administration, tlio con
vention did not ignoro the grent social
problems whicli aro pressing their claims

careful study and wiso consideration.
Foremost stands tho labor question. Con
cerning the relations of capital und labor,
tho republican party accepts tho duty of
so shaping legislation un to secure full
protection and the amplest field for capital
und tho labor, thu creation of capital, tlio
largest opportunities and just sliaro of
mutual profits of these two great sorvants
ot civilization. To women, too, and her
now demands, it extends thu hand of grate
ful recognition, und proffers its most
respectful inquiry. It recognizes her
noblo dovotion to tho country and frco
dom; welcomes her admission to wider
Holds of usefulness, and commends her de
mands for additional rights to tho cnlm nnd
careful consideration of the nation. To
guard well what has already been secured,
to work out faithfully und wisely what is
now in hand, und to consider questions
whico uro looming up to vlow but

party Is to-dny what it wns in tho
