gOL. 9IILLER, Editor. WHITE CliOUD, KANSAS: Thnraday, ;;;:;; Atpril 18, 1872. Kansas Liberal Cavetla. Pursuant to long notice, and after an itamt nse mmnt ,f drnmniimr and tirenaratiou. the " Lib eral Rennhliean" iliu Convention came off at Topeka, on the 10th. By getting their whole force In the State together at Topeka, every man regis tering his name at ill the hotels, to swell the ap parent number or arrivals, and being reinforced by many who went to look on, ont of curiosity, they made a tolerable show. But those who were there, say there was no life or enthusiasm mani fested. It was as if a squad 01 ueou meu uuu . n to pass resolution! of condolence over their own demise. The Leaders of the movement, of course, were there Pabbott, the tonrist, in his bitteruef, sour against everybody who has been successful be cause be is played out; Sam. Wood, because he took a notion to train with that Prt.v this time; E. G. Boss, because Gbast declined to accept his invitation to go and see his future residence; Bv KOX Siierkv, because this is his regular year to oppose the Republican party; Sam. Crawfobd, to spite God Almighty ior m. K...UBu.u. ...., .-a h. il.i.,re of the shining lights of the party. The rank and tile were men scarcely ever heard of heretofore, and wen-just as likely to be demo crats as anj thing else-iu fact, some of them avowed themselves Democrats. The v made their speeches, passed their resolu tions, heard an address from B. Gbatz Brows, the great Squeegee of Liberalism, and appointed their nlt in the Cincinnati Convention. This last was an interesting operation. They wanted a big delegation, but there were not enough per sons present to fill the bill ; so they appointed men in different parts of the State, whom they suspect ed might be friendly to their movement, and many who are squarely opposed to it. The let ters of denial from this class of men, who will be anxious to rid themselves of the taint thus attached to them, w ill alone occupy much more space than the en tire proceedings of their Convention, including the speech of B. Gkatz. Such was the first outpouring of this party of disappointment and malice iu Kausas. It lias not strength enough in the State to change the result in a single County, if its entire vote combines with that of the Democrats. And it is now at the height of its strength. After the Cincinnati and Philadelphia Conventions, there will be scarcely enough Liberal Republicans left in Kansas to run salve on the sores of the galled political hacks who set the niachiue in motion. a ii TlIE JlATTElt WITH TlIEM.

They appointed, as Delegated to the Cincinnati Convention, every man who attended their meet ing, every man who was supposed to be favorable to their movent, and a good many who never gave them any reason so believe they were inclined that way, making n grand total of about one hun dred men; aud yet there is not the name of a sin pie Douiphan County man on their list. This speaks well for Douiphan Connty. r3r There was a conference between leading Liberal Republicans and Democrats, at Cincin nati, the other day, during which they tried hard to effect a coalition, hut without satisfactory re sults. Finally the Democrats told them that if they would nominate Judge Davis and Gov. Cuu TIX, the Democrats would go with them, but upon no other conditions. So that the Liberals must listen to" Democratic dictation, or the "quill busts." tSF The Liberals are boosting that Hexry Ward. Beecher spoke in favor of their movement, the other day. So he did in fa vor "of Axnv John son's Treason, but it didn't do him a hit of good.

Day, well known as one of the earliest and staunchest adherents of the Lalior party movement, and vice-president of the asso ciation, has addressed a note to the secretary, in which he totally rrpndiates the nominee for the Presidency, as unsound in sentiment and unwor thy of the support of the body which named him asitslesder. After quoting the telegraphic dis- Jateb which has recently appeared, stating that mice Davis denies having soucht nomination. 'and laying down the terms on which the Judge IS willing IO accept nomination, jir. ua says: If he is the author, or if he allows another to make that statement for him, then I say Judge Davis is an artful dodger, and I say, further, the whole thing is a foul. This statement, under the circumstances, is a gross insult to every man in the labor ranks ; he must think us boys or fools. We must now make Davis show his teeth, orsknlk away like a dog who dare not defend his bone. Look at it a moment; over thirty-five days have elapsed, sufficient to have more than this little nothing at all to have been said, and I hold it self-evident that this is not the only way of meet ing the compliment thrust upon him by so ear nest a body of men holding such positive princi ples as ours, which are not only the bono and sinew of the nation, but the base and foundation of the republic. To some of our mends he makes such rep resentation of bis principles to induce them to trust him, and they in turn ask our party to be satisfied; while to the great public the nation he proclaims that he declines to "enter into any arrangement concerning the nomination," and has not. He then declares what are his views. Who can beor bis "friends" liopeto mislead f Is it the Cincinnati Convention, whom the Camden Democrat (edited by one of the two New Jersey delegates), tells us he expects or hopes, or his friends hope, to capture, or the great Democratic fiarty, without which he would have no hope f f he is true to these expected friends, he must be false to us. Not one word on the all-important financial question ; not n word, indeed, in resiect to a sigle plank in the platform of the National Lalior Union, except that of generous amnesty to the South. Well, every party is on this plauk. Ours, however, is the only one which means what it says. All this is, 'in my judgment, foul play, wholly unworthy the arties concerned; and if this is Davis' position he has not accepted either our platform or our nomination, hut refuses' it, and this is the whole case. Though not designated by the convention, Mr. Day informed Judge Davis and Governor Parker that they had been nominated. He says: Davis never answered that letter. Parker did, and cleared his skirts of all cause for criticism so far as I am concerned. Parker answered that when notice was officially made lie would imme diately "answer in writing." Well here We are with over a mouth passed. Not oue ratification meeting, and good reasons to snppose politicians plowing with our men. The masses, impatient and more and more determined not to be hitched to the tail of party kites. Under these circum stances our movement to form an Independent Workingmen's party, which came in with such bright prospects, is being looked upon with con tempt; and this the more so because Davis him self has treated us, to say the least, with practical contempt. His manifesto does not notice us as of the least consequence. If this statement is hi and I can see for him no way ont of it he has not accepted the platform, and holds himself at iilxr ty be everybody's candidate anil nobody's, if he so elects; while he coolly tells the people if they desire him to represent them as a cendidate, his principles are summed up in the three or four generalities, the significance of which gives the lie to the openingdeclaratibn, and,f.iiliugthroiigh this appeal to the South to obtain the coveted nomination, he of course is at liberty to retire at his pleasure, leaving us practically sold out to Grant, Davis still enjoying his fat office for life. New comers into our Labor Reform movement mav be satisfied. So also tradinir politicians ac customed to every fonl thing for office and spoil. It was to uproot the entire system of fraud and under cover of mere trading politicians that we started to form n workingmen's party. Judge Davis is proving most conclusively his unfitness to represent any class of real reformers, much less to help reformers in the crisis now so near npnn lis. I propose for one to be no party in the giving to any man the power to pi in with the w hip iu handto lash and scourge those who put him in power. Arte Fort Standard. Anniversary Days la April. Many secular anniversarsaries, ancient and modem, occur iu the month of April; some of world-wide interest; others of national impor tance. We. ran allude to only a very few of them. It was on the 4th of April, ieVTi, that Richmond fell into the hands of the federal government, after so many long and desperate struggles. On the 9th-Gen. Lee surrendered his forces, and the confederacy collapsed; eeuts which were among the many momentous ones of our grapple with the great reliellioii. And the first shot at Fort Sumter, which opened the "dance of death" for ns, occurred on the 13th of April, 1SC1. The 14th of April, 1667, was the day of doom to our great and good Lincoln, through the bullet of the assassin llootb. The 15th was the day of hisdeath. Fntiiregencrations will take more heed of this anniversary than tho one which was privileged to know the man him self. Especially will that race, in w hose freedom the mighty struggle resulted, love to remember and honor the day wherein that noble martyr to to their cause yielded un his life. On the 17th of I April, 1790, Benjamin Franklin, now world known ami wuriu-respevieu, uepaneu luis me, jaticn with years and honors. The 19th f.f April 1773, oiiened the drama of the revolutionary war by the battle of Lexington. Lord Byron died atMis solonghi, iu Italy, the 18th of April, 1AM ; his fiery but erratic Kenning finally quenched while aiding the Greeks in their struggle for indepen dence. The 23d of April, 181(1, will .alnajs lie memorable as the one which closed 'the mortal existence of the rarest and most brilliant iniud which the annals of poesy can boast iu any agi that of William Shakspeare. On the 30th of April, 1793,. George Washington was inaugurated the first President of the non great aud prosperous republic, having conducted to a triiimphaut termination the revolutionary conflict, as nnr last oue has done that of the "great rebellion." iai Soldiers' Homesteads. Tlie provisions of the Soldiers' Homestead Bill, which lixs just passed Congress and received the signature of the Presi dent, are as follows : Every officer, soldier, sai lor, or marine who served in the war for a period exceeding ninety days may, in settling upon the public lands under the homestead laws, count the period of his service as a part of the five years' residence required to obtain a patent to one hun dred and sixty acres. Theactnal residence on the land must lie at least oue year. Six months are allowed after the location of the laud before the residence upon it must commence. Persons dis charged for wounds or disability may have their whole period of enlistment counted. In case of the death of a person who would be entitle,! to the privileges of the act, his widow, if unmarried, or minor children, if the widow be married or dead, are entitled to its Iienefits. Any person to whom the bill gives the right to acquire land may have the same entered and the required settlement and residence made by an agent. This is the most important feature of the hill, for a comparatively small number of soldiers will themselves become homestead settlers. The right to transfer their priviliges to an agent will doubtless be of considerable value to them. A River Crop.

Abolitionists and anti-slavery n,en rree-soil-crs and Republicans accepted as a vital, "anima ting, and living faith, the creed of human equal ity. Accepting the doctrine that emancipation was the duty or the master -and the right or the slaves, and that it was the duty of the nation to prohibit and abolish slavery whenever it had the power, thev petitioned Congress to i performs that work iu the District of Columbia and in the Territories. They maintained, when assailed, the sacral right of petition and the freedom of speech. Thev opposed tho annexation of Texas, by which' it was sought to prevent the abolition of slavery there, and to strengthen it at home. They struggled to prohibit slavery in free ter ritory won from Mexico by war. They resisted with all their power tho opening of the free Territories of Utah and New Mexico to" slavery, and the snrrender of thousands of square miles of free soil to slaveholding Texas. Thev opiwsed'tbe enactment of the fugitive slave bill and the nnhulv compromises of 1650. Thev sternly resisted the repeal of the Missouri compromise, "which hsd secured hundreds of thousands of square miles to free labor, and for free laboring men. They denounced the bonier ruffian invaders of Kansas, their nnholy legislation establishing slavery, and their inhuman slave code. They pronounced the Lecompton Constitution "the product of fraud and violence." They denounced the Ded Scott dicta, by which it was proclaimed that "black men hail no rights white men were bound to respect. They exposed the delusions of sqnatter sov ereignty, and denied the right of slave masters to take their slaves into national territory aud be protected by national authority. They steadily and sternly rejected, when men aced by rebellion and civil war, tho Crittenden compromise, by which the nation, by irreiealable constitutional amendments, was to recognize sla very south of- the Missouri compromise line, al low slave masters to take their fettered bondmen into and through the free States, deprive men of African descent of citizenship and suffrage, and denv to Congress the right to abolish slavery iu the capital of the nation. When the Republican party came into power in 18G1 it inflexible adhered, at the risk of civil war, to the principles it had enunciated for impartial lilierty, and agaiiisttheaggrexsiveauddoininating influences of the slave masters. It made free slaves used by the rebels for mili tary pnrposes. It forbade officers to return to their masters fugitives coming withiu-the lines of the army to seek the protection of the national flag. It abolished slavery iuthe District of Columbia, and made the national rapital free. It annulled the inhuman, cruel, and degrading Black Code of the District, and provided that col ored men should lie tried aud punished in the same manner the white man was tried and pun ished. It gave its colored jieojile the right to testify in the courts of law. to ride in the public convey ances, to educate their children, to vote, and to be voted for. It prohibited slavery in the vast Territories of the I nitcd States, and saved them from its chains and whips, its auction blocks, and its blood hounds. It made free slaves captured by its armies, or who cauio within their advancing lines. It reiiealcd the cruel and humiliating Fugitive SlaeAct, and brought to a close its inhuman and dastardly slave hunts. It recognized the nationality of llayti and Li beria, hicli had been so long and so wickedly withheld by the slave ;ower. It enrolled black men, and wcnKincd their hands to tight the battles of their country. It gave freedom to the slaves who joined the armies of the Union. It made free the wife ami children of the black soldier. It struck the word white from the military laws, aud made black men a portion of the na tional militia. It prohibited the barbarous and barbarizing prartice of punishing offenses by whipping in the reconstructed States. It abolished aud forever prohibited the system of peonage in New Mexico. It entered into treaty stipulations with the British government for the final extirpation of the African slave trade. It made the coast-w isc slave traffic illegal. It gave black men the right tu testify in the courts of the Uuited States. It gave Huffmge to black men iu all the Terri tories of the republic. It sustained Abraham Lincoln's proclamation of emancipation that gave trceuoui to three anil a half millions of men, women and children. It forever abolished slavery throughout the laiid, by the adoption of the 13th Amendment. It created the Freedroen's Bureau for the pro tection mid education of the emuiiiipated bond men. It secured to black men the full and equal liene fit of all laws for the protection of life and pro perty by the civil rights act. It made colored men citizens of the Uuited States. It secured, by the adoption of the 14th Amend ment, equal protection to citizens in all the States. It steadily opposed and defeated the policy of President Johnson, which would have left colored men completely helpless a degraded caste of serfs at the mercy of their old masters. It removed unjust restrictions, and gave to colored men a common right iu the public do main, till then withheld. It gave suffrage to three qnartcrs of a million of black men by its measures of reconstruction. It gave, by the adoption of the 15th amendment and the laws to enforce it, suffrage to black men throughout the United States, It has given, by the law tu enforce the 14th amendment and its execution, some measure of protection to the colored race against the lawless and murderous Ku-Ivinx Klans. Each and all of these acts secure, or tend to se cure and guard, the personal liberty, the equal rights and the equal privileges of the African race. By this grand series of acts the Republican party has given personal freedom and equality to all the colored race, ami is seeking to secure law, order, peace, education, and general develop ment. Can a Republican forget this record of brilliant deeds and of glorious achievements,, which have won the approval of conscience and reason, and the admiration of lilieral, pngressie, and generous men the wide world over I Will not the men of the African race esjiecially cling with deathless tenacity to the organization which has achieved fur them results to compe hensive, far-reaching, and enduring 1 Cau colored citizens evcrhesitatein their choice between the Republican party with snrh a re cord of beneficent deeds, and the Democratic par ty that has, for forty years, with sneering and hostile contempt, opposed every generous, hn niane, and ennobling measure designed for their freedom, impiovement, and elevation f m oi The Washincton correspondent of the Boston Globe writes 'a gossipy letter about the proliable nominees of theCincmnati Convention.

Neither Sumner, Greeley nor Fentou are mentioned here. Not much expectation is had of Gratz Brown's nomination, though that in either place is what the Simon Pnres want. Charles Francis Adams is the favorite, being regarded as the most avail able man.

The Xew York HrrwM discusses Mr. Gbkelet and his ambitious pretenses in this way : "A little of his political history will serve to show that Mr. Greeley is not the man who forgets or forgives the neglect of his claims to promotion. It was on account of snch neglect en the port of his colleagues in the firm of Seward, Weed and Greeley that he broke up this firm in 1980.' It was becanse his claims were neglected in the division of tho Cabinet offices, foreifrn missions, and custom houses, by Lincoln, that Mr. Greeley opposed his rennminatiou; aud because Gen. Grant has been gnilty of the same blunder, Mr. Greeley is going to head him off at Cincinnati. The man of Chan- paqna is in earnest as a Presidential candidate.

Two well-known Massachusetts Bepnbli cans were in Washington four weeks after the inauguration of President Grant and called upon the Senator, who talked with them freely, and criticised the then recent appointments to office, and among other things said : " It is always bad policy in a Republican form of government to put into the Presidential chair a man whose only Qualification is his military record." And he ail ed, with a voice and manner peculiarly his own: " President Grant, in these few weeks that he has been President, has done more to demoralize and break un the Republican party than Andrew -Tntinann did his entim funr Vtani' iulniinitratifi,i erl As the gentlemen were leaving, one of them in quired if that conversation should lie rejieated in Massachusetts. "Yes," said the Senator, " pro claim it anywhere and everywhere." The gen tlemen left, but did not bear Mr. Sumner's mes sage to the people of this State, and only made it public when, a year or two later, the whole com munity had been made aware of his dislike of the President. Almnt the time of the visit of these gentlemen to Washiugtou,othergentIemen of this State became aware of Senator Sumner's feelings towanl President Grant. It is apparent from the fart that President Grant had at that time done but little besides ap mmt liis Cabinet and other officer, mid less of these than had been anticipated, that the Senator could have no othrr cause of complaint. His opio.sitiou to the President is tbnsclearlyand un mistakably shown to have had no other origin than this disregard of his advice in making appointments, and failure to consult him iu that matter. Congress had adjourned, and other Senators hail left the capital, but Mr. Sumner re mained liehind to lie the self-constituted extra constitutional adviser of the Militiral neophyte elevated to the Picsidenti.il chair. His advice was not songht, and like the belle who, among her scores of admirers, sees one person not at all moved by her charms, and determined to email bim if she cannot bring him to her feet as a suitor, the Seii.itor leci.me enraged, and has been nur sing his auger until the present time; and he is now ready to defeat his own frinds, aud endanger the future welfare of the country, to punish the man who not only committed the unpardonable sin of slighting him, but has aggravated the of fense by continuing impenitent.
