DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
PREAMBLE.
We, the Liberal Republicans of the
United States in Convention assembled at
Cincinnati, proclaim the following princi
ples as essential to just government:
DEAD I MrE? Bl'BIKO.
1. We recognize the equality of all
men before the law, and hold that it is
the duty of the government in its dealings
with the people to mete out EQUAL AN D
EXACT JUSTICE TO ALL, OF
WHATEVER NATIONALITY, RACE,
COLOR OR PERSUASION, RELI
GIOUS OR POLITICAL.
Z. WE PLEDGE OURSELVES TO 4
MAINTAIN THE UNION OF THESE
STATES. EMANCIPATION AN DEN
FRANCH1SEMENT, AND TO OP
POSE ANY REOPENING OF THE
QUESTIONS SETTLED BY THE
THIRTEENTH, FOURTEENTH AND
FIFTEENTH AMENDMENTS OF
THE CONSTITUTION.
CXIYEMAI. AXXKHTT.
3. We demand the immcdiato and ab
solute removal of all disabilities imposed
on account of the rebellion which was
finally subdued seven yoars ago, believing
that UNIVERSAL AMNESTY WILL
RESULT IN THE COMPLETE PAC
IFICATION IN ALL SECTIONS OF
THE COUNTRY-
BKHOCBATIC TO THE CO BE.
4. LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
with impartial suffrs.ee, will cuard the
rights of all citizens more securely than
any centralized power. The people and
th tinMle welfare reauire the SUPRE
MACY OF THE CIVIL OVER THE
MILITARY AUTHORITY and
FREEDOM OF PERSON UNDER
THE PROTECTION OF THE UA
BEAS CORPUS. Wo demand for the
individual the largest liberty consistent
with Dublic order, for tbe slate seir-gov
rnment, and for the nation a return to
tbe methods or peace ana tne comma
tional limitations or power.
"TBCE AS PBEACUIXO."
6. Tho civil service of the government
has become a mere instrument or partisan
tvrannv and personal ambition, and an
object of selfish greed. It is a scandal
and reproach upon free institutions, and
breeds a demoralisation dangerous to tbe
perpetuity of republican government.
THEBEFSBE A WISE DEMASD.
6. We therefore regard a THOROUGH
REFORM OF THE CIVIL SERVICE
as one ot the most pressing necessities of
the hour: that honesty, capacity and fidel
ity constitute the only valid claims to pub
lic employment; that tbe offices of tho
government ceaso to bo a matter of arbi
trary favoritism and patronage, and that
Eubflc station become again tho post of
onor. TO THIS END IT IS IMPER
ATIVELY REQUIRED THAT NO
PRESIDENT SHALL BECOME A
CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION.
TAMirr SfCKNTlON MIIUVED ABIDE.
7. Wo demand a system of federal tax
ation which shall not unnecessarily inter
fere with the industry of tbo people, and
which sball provide tbo means necossary
10 pay me expenses 01 tno government,
economically administered tho pensions,
tbe interest on tho public debt and a mod
erate annual reduction of tbo principal
thereof, and recognize that thoro are in
our midst honost but Irreconcilable dif
ferences of opinion with regurd to tbo re
spective systems of protection find freo
trade. WE REMIT THE DISCUS
SION OF THEM TO THE PEOPLE
IN THEIR CONGRESSIONAL DIS
TRICTS, AND THE DECISION OF
CONGRESS THEREON, WHOLLY
FREE OF EXECUTIVE INTERFER
ENCE AND DICTATION
KO REPUDIATION.
8. Tbe public credit must bo sacredly
maintained, and wo DENOUNCE RE
PUDIATION in every form and Kuiso.
BIMU Or TIIK THVE METAI..
V. A BfiiKDX RETURN TO

mercial morality and honest government
A WORD rOB THE NOEDIEH IIUYN
10. We remember with gratltudo tbo
sacrifices of tho soldiers and sailors of tho
republic, and no act of ours shall ever
detract from their justly earnod fame, or
sua iuii rewnruk 01 lucir patriotism.

11. We ore opposod to all furtbor grants
of land to railroads or other corporations.

HELL) HACKED TO ACTUAL SET
TLERS. LIBERAL rOREIUN POLICY.
12. We hold that it is tho duty of tbe
government in its intercourse with foreign
nations to cultivato friendships of peace
by treating with all on fair and oqual
terms, regarding it aliko dishonorable
either to demandV what is not right or sub
mlt to what is wrong,
"EVERYBODY INVITED."
IS. For tbe Dromotlnn
TiV PnnciV es, and tbe support of
Ittadldate nominated by this conven
we invite and cordially welcome the
wm pysraiiiwi 01 u patriotic citizens, with
t rtffrt to previous political affiliation.
The Benton 'Standard,' slnco tho liora
ination of Greoley, has becomo as silent
as an oyster on the subject of politics, and
proposes to dovoto its attention hereafter
to religion, in the hopo of obtaining that
strength which is of endurance born.
We uro an admirer of the oratorical
ability of Mr. B. Gratz Brown, but wo
would not shed many tears if that gentle
man should never again deliver another
nddrcss like that in which ho indulged
at New Haven lately. Four years ago,
Mr. F. Blair, then tho Democratic candi
date for Vlco-President, " hung on the
vergo" of making an ass ol himself by a
speech he delivered at Indianapolis, and
B. Gratz might profit by his example.
The Democratic party stands to-day in
a formidable position, from which it can
not be dislodged. Its final triumph is as
sured. It is truo that it may yet exper
ienco temporary reverses, but it cannot
bo defeated. Its weapons are now those
of truth not that truth which croons over
the past, forgetful of the future, but tbe
truth of vital issues tbe essence of those
principles in the triumph of which tbe
country will becomo prosperous, its gov
ernment honest and its liberties consolidated.
The foreign demand for wheat from
this country tbe present year is expected
to be unusually large. In various parts
of Europe the wheat crop has been almost
entirely destroyed through different causes.
In Hungary, some times called tho "gran-
'ary of the world," it is.cstim&ted four mil
lion acres of land are now under water.
In Bohemia the same misfortune has
overtaken the crop prospects, and tbe
inhabitants are compelled to look toward
America for their supply of wheat.
When Mr. Greeley informed tho com-
mitteo of the Baltimore convention he
was not much in the habit of receiving
nominations for tbe presidency, tbe mem
bers of that committee, all of whom (with
the exception of tbo chairman) have a
high appreciation of subtile wit, laughed
loudly and boisterously ; and whon the
next president added: "I am conse-
1 qucntly unablo to reply as readily and
1 fluently as others might," the wit-loving
committee engaged in "renewed laugh
ter." That committee have procured our
intense admiration.
OUR PRESENT POSITION
During twelve years tho domocracy
havo boon led, canvass after canvass, Into
mistakes by loaders whoso sagacity was
limited, whoso prejudices wcro in full
bloom and whoso appreciation of tho needs
of tho country was limited by tho knowl-
edgo of their own personal wants and am
bitions. In 1860 they shattorcd tho Dem
ocratic organization and olected Lincoln ;
in 1864 thoy placed n soldier on n plat
iorm which was, to sny tho least of it, as
ambiguous as tho prophecies and visions
of Revolatlons ; In 1868 thoy went into a
frenzy on a foolish issue, and then throw
up thoir hats for a man who spat upon
their hobby, at a later period, when tho
results of tho war had been declared, thoy
insisted that tho Democracy should con
tinue to blow the ram's horn of dissent until
tbe walls of tho Jericho of accomplished
events should fall prone; and, In short,
insisted that tho lamp of common senso
should not be allowed to glimmer in the
council chamber of tho party, and that old-
time prejudices should bo allowed to con
trol. The morally brave men who met
tho foolish outgivings of these foolish lead
crs with words of wisdom, and insisted
that the Domocracy should march to the
van of events and cast off the corpse of
dead issues, were hooted, and the high
priests of Bourbonism, with strange invo
cations to the bones of Jefferson and Jack
son, read them out of the party. But at
last these leaders lost their power. Tbe
Democratic people asserted their iade-
pendence, and compelled the party to ad
vance with the times. The leaders, except
a few crack-brained and absolutely insane
man followed tbe masses, and with
the meekness of lambs or tho
enthusiasm of new converts ac
cepted the principles of tbe
Cincinnati platform as Democratic princi
ples, and with smack of tbo Hps that
said with distinctness: '-This is n dish wo
relish,' swallowed Honest Horace Greeley
and Missouri's B. Gratz Brown 1 Our mil
lenium is near at hand. Its dawn will be
announced bv the election of Greelev and
Brown, by Democratic votes, on a plattorrr.

'Valley Clarion,' a sprightly
published at Chester, Ran
county, and earnestly devoted
A'Dr. Mitchell, who, it is supposed,
knows whereof he speaks, gives it as bis
well-weighed opinion, that the marriage
of cousins is not, as it is generally sup
posed to be, the causo of idiocy and in
sanity to tbo issue of such marriages. Dr.
Mitchell says that to measles, whooping
cough and scarlet fover, is due tbe devel
opement of such forms of bodily and men
tal affliction as are said to result from con
sangulnous marrlagos. Cousins who en
tertain'more than a cousinly affection for
each other, may take heart oi grace from
this opinion of Dr. Mitcholl and marry
without fear, provided thoy nurso their
children with good caro through tncaslosi
wboopUg cough, scarlet fever, and other
dangers incident to childhood.
The radicals of this ctto continue to
claim that tbo foreign voto will bo largely
in favor of tbo radical stato aud national
tickets. Tbe indications scarcoly justify
tho nseortion. It Is hardly possible that
tbo Gormans will voto against Koorner,
ono of thoir own countrymen, on tho stato
ticket, or in favor of Wilson, on tho na
tionnl tlckot, whoso opinion of Germans
ho expressed some years ago, in tho fol
lowing languagos "Some tell mo that
'many foroignors aro intelligent yes, In
' tolligont ! How in tbo naino of Almighty
' God can they say it? Look nt tho Dutch-
'man sucking his plpo, and if you soe a
'rny otlntelligonco In that dirty, idiotic
' looking fuco of his, show it to mo."
The "Valley ClarioT" is"lnformed

If tit all, " slurred at Mr. Hurtzol." The
Bulletin 1ms had little opportunity to
study that gentleman's strong points.

of tho 23d Inst, he will receivo tho hearty

who desires a nomination for congress,
placidly remarks : "If Cairo has organized
' a 'ring' for the purpose of imposing a
' congressional candldato upon this dls-
' trlct, it would be advisable to break it up
at once."
It is a habit Into which those counties of
this congressional district, in which there
arc "rings" tbo members of which are la
boring to secure offices to their own men,
havo fallen, to assert that Cairo has a
"ring" the members of which aro always
candidates for any vacant office. There
never was a more unjust charge than this
We have lived in Cairo now nearly a de
cade, and in all that time there has not
been nominated by tbo democratic party
of tbe congressional, senatorial or repre
sentative district a candidate for any of
fice, except Mr. Thomas Wilson, for
member of the State Board of Equalize
tion, and he could not have obtained that
nomination if tho other counties had not
boen certain that bis dofeat was an assured
fact. Mr. Allen, when ho was nominated
for congross, was considered a Williamson
county man, and Mr. Green, whon ho was
sonator, was n Massac county Democrat.
Cairo has received substantially nothing
from the party, and wants nothing now.
Tho only "ring" in Cairo, of which wo
havo had any cognizance, was a "ring" of
Democratic politicians whoso labors wcro

THE LONG-LOST.
HAS LIVINOSTONE MARRIED A PRINCESS
OF THE SUN?
World London Letter.
There is somo curious club talk in regard
to tbe great explorer whom vour man
Stanley found, but could not bring away
no more tban lie could pluck up drowned
honor bv the roots. It is conjectured that
Stanley did not tell all he knows, or else
tbat Livingstone did not permit him to
discover all there was to be found out. A
story is revived that was current torn
years since, but whlcb, when it came lo
lieht in a Cleveland paper on vour side the
Atlantic, was so vigorously pooh-poohed
tbat men fancied there was no foundation
for It. This story was to tbo effect tbat
the reason why Livingstone did not come
borne was that he was hannilr married in
Central Africa, and could neither bring
his dear princess with him nor tear himself
away from her fascinating embraces.
This story, it will bo remembered, was
said to have been brought down to Zanzi
bar by Arabs trading with Uzizi. It will
be remembered, morever, tbat long before
ivirk or anv ono claimed to bave lldincs
of Livingstone, either direct or indirect,
tbe late sir Roderick Jlurcbison was in
the habit of expressing himself as being as
sured of tao traveler s visibility, and boot
ing at tbe notion tbat there was any truth
in the report of his having been murdered.

patienceot civilization manifest by Living
stone on his former visit his "horror of
lionizinc, his disgust of book-craft and
quotes his declaration tbat it was easier to
explore Africa than to tell about it. TLoro
is talk or bis naturally nomadic disposition,
and the well-ascertained fact that habits
of life such as bo has followed for so manr
vears. joined to a roving spirit, become in
veterate and uncontrollable. Tbo quid
nuncs shake their beads and tell of Rajah
tirooke, Hester Stanbope, Lady Lllen-
borough, and many other English
women and men who, crazed with "form
sickness," havo broken bounds and (led to
savagery for life. Livingstone, tbcy( say,
expects to come back "some of these days,"
wben tbe U lysses spirit it is quilo worn out
ofbim, but he has nodetlnito intention
to return at any particular time, and bis
tiling two years as tne period ot time
necessary to complete his discoveries by
tbe exploration ot leo miles or river was a
mere subtertuge to get rid or Stanley. Jt
is further insinuated tbat this expatriation
of himself is an old plan ; tbat be himself

ANTIOCH.
THE DECAUENCE 01" THE UNFORTUNATE
CITT.
The following sketch of tho once power
ful city of Antiocb, which received its
coup de grace by a recent earthquake
will be read with interest:
Antloch is a city of Syria, situated in
the northern part of tbatcountry,o7 miles
west of Aleppo, on tho left bank of tbo
river Orontes, about 'JO miles abovo its
mouth. The city is in 3" dog. north and
36 deg. cast longitude Its population is
estimated ut about 10,000, and the city is
surrounded by an ancient wall of from 20
to "0 feet In height. This wall Incloses an
urea of uneven ground several miles in
circumferonco, much of which is now
taken up by gardens. The houses are
built mostly oi slight or frngilo inntorials,
and differ widely from those of othor Ori
ental cities in baving sloping instead of
ilut roofs. It bus about a dozen mosques,
but in this singular town, wbero thodeeig
nation of Christians was first given to the
followers of Jesus Christ, and where Paul
preached so many famous sermons, tbero
is not at present, u single Christian church.
Baths nnd bazars of tho onstcrn typo uro
very numerous, and there iiro manufactor
ies ot coarso pottery, cotton stilus, and
leather, but culturo of silk Is tho chief
brnnch of industry. About 10,000,000
druchms of silk wore tho annual average
produce of silk in tho district in 1850, 1861
and 18CJ. Tbo annual export ot this
gross amount was about 7,000,000 drachms,
chiefly to Franco. Tho othor exports nro
goatsrwool, yollow berries and suited cols.
The city walls, ruined uquoduct, bridges,
and a portion of pavoment uro tho solo re
maining vestiges of ancient magnliconco.
Antloch was embellished and named by
Solueus Nicutor, boforo Christ 301, and,
though it suffered severely by successive
earthquakes, it muintained its importance
until captured by tho Saracens, in A. D.
038. Its ancient population during Its
most flourishing period was estimatod at
400,000 souls. Clirysostom computed the
population at 200,000, moro than ono-lmlf
of whom wcro Christians,
Antloch was tho capital of n Christian
principality from 1,01)8 to 1,200, slnco
which tlmo it has steadily iloclincd. Somo
ruins about olght milos southwostward, on
the south bank of tho Orontes, mark tho
sight of tho colobrated ancient grovo or
Duplino and toinplo of Apollo.
COLONEUtANDOLI'II,
Colonel Thomas Jcfl'orson Randolph,
tho temporary president of tho recent
democratic convention, is a Virginia gon
tloman of tho old school, an cxporlcncod
politician, who, while novor a candidate
lor public ofllec, has always been influen
tial and rospootod. Ills counsols and
opinions woro hold In high regard by tho
irginla Senators, Messrs, Mason and
Hunter, and on one or moro occasions ho
lias presided ovor tho consorVativo con
ventions of Virginia. Mr. Randolph
wmUio favorito grandson of tho great
iboiiias Jeflcrson.and was mado by him
tho executor of his will and tho depository
of his public and private papers, Tho for
mer wcro sola to tno f ederal uovcrnmcnt
nnd published by tho sanction of Congress.
Mr. Randolph is frank, simple, gonial,
hospitable, devoted to agricultural lifo and
tno nssciations ot ins lamiiy nnd irionus.
Ho resides nt Edgo Hill, near Charlotts
villo, Virginia. Though soventy-threo
years of ago ho Is halo ot body and mind,
and is ono of tho llncst-looklng men in
Virginia. Ho has been n warm and early
frlond of tho Libornl movement nnd of tho
Cincinnati nominees. Tho Virginia de
legation wcro about to adopt n resolution
to present Mr. Randolph's name, but Mr.
Randolph would not consent to do moro
than let his namo bo suggested to tho
National Committee. This whs dono,
n hen the committee met, by Mr. John
Goode, in n neat nnd h.tndsomo address.
Mr. Bato Tennessee thought Hint both
tho temporary nnd permanent President
ought to conic from tbo North. General
Ransom North Carolina said that no
distinction should be mado between
sections, and the Northern members ol
the convention all said that they must not
act on sectional considerations. Mr.
Randolph was then chosen without op
position. SLU-KR.
Or tho venerable Henry Sllcer, tho cler
gyman who opened the democratic
national convention with pravcr. a
correspondent says; "Ho is a singular
looking old man, 'wearing spectacle, with
a large Roman nose, a grim old-fashioned,
aggressive MothoJUt manner, and he Is
said to bcnn itinerant preacher, who hits
iecn atom nan n century in tbe linltimorc
Conference of tho Methodist Church.
Slicer has been in his times a great
controversialist arguing points of doctrine
with the Uaplisls and Episcopalians, and
he had been called "The War-horse of
Northern Methodism ' in the Monumental
City. Tbe old gentleman s style and
manner U-dy were quiet, individual and
quaint, nnd he literally appeared to bo
wrestling Jwith the Lord in favor of
conservative politics. His prayer was a
patriotic and effective one, and conveyed
tho Impression of great sincerity and
devotion, nnd the s.imo may be said to
have marked tho whole proceedings to-day.
Whether Mr- Greoley be elected Jor no't,
tho democrats havo destroyed their past
record and demonstrated themselves to bo
an entirely loyal, cheerful and national
political organization.''
AN INHUMAN 1IUTCUER.
From the Memphis Ledger, 13.
It seems incredible to bciicvo that n
man could bo found so inhuman as to de
liberately load an old musket and shoot
tho brains out of nn unfortunate youth
bathing in the river. Yet this infamous
and fiendish act was perpetrated last even
ing at tho foot of lie-ul street by John
Sturgeon, upon John Murphy, a boy aged
sixteen, because ho had a nurnbor of his
companions indulging in a bath near
Sturgeon's flat-boat. It was a most mel
ancholy sight to witness tho dead boy as
he lav upon the bank, tho pale moon shed.
ding a ghastly, lurid light upon his pale
iace, luai, even in ueatn, oxnressed tho
deepest agony. That n being in human
form, nnd professing to belong to tho hu
man family, could deliberated commit
suchn bloody deed is perfectly astounding.
