Attest AARON KIMBALL. Clerk of the Board. The Grand Army. The New York Tribune thus pays its respects to the Graod "Anny of the Republic. We find a sentiment in the West that has expression in a few misera ble, jobbing newspapers—a kind of Thenadier feeling. A number of office beggars and politicians, call ing themselves the Grand Army of of the Republic, and meeting in out of-the-way places with grips and pass-words, are passing resolutions demanding confiscation and forms. This is either knavery or madness People who want farms work for them. Tho only class wo know that takes other people's property because they want it is largely rep resented at Sing Sing. The people of this country do not want Sing Sing and Mexican banditti princi ples introduced into their states manship. We cansmever reconstruct America by the gallows and the Deputy Sheriff, and wo trust that the Kpirit of kindnes will prevail especially because this contest in not made by the Southern people. "Not Qualified. When John Brown, D. D., had settled in Haddington, the people of his parish gave him a warm and en thusiastic reception only one of the members of that large church stood out in opposition to him. The rev erend doctor tried all means in his power to convert tbe solitary dissen ter to unity of feeling whicli pervaded the whole body, but all his efforts to obtain an interview proved abor tive. As Providence directed, how ever, they happened one day to meet in the Btreet, when the doctor held out his hand, saying, "My brother, I understand you arc op posed to my settling at Iladding ton." "Yes, 6ir," replied the parisioner. "Well, and if it be a fair ques tion, on what grounds do you object to me?" "Because, sir," says he, "I don't think you are qualified to fill so im portant a post." "That is my opinion," replied the doctor "but what, sir, is the use of you and I setting up our opinion in opposition to tho whole parish?" "The brother smiled, and their friendship was sealed forever. How very true-and forcibe God's word: 'A^soft answerturnethaway wrath.' A waggish editor says that the streets of one of the Western citics arc to be lighted with red headed girls. We like to hug the lamp pOBtfe. #1 50 PER ANNUM. The Mongrel Platform. Below We publish the platform adopted by the State Convention that assembled at Des Moines on the 19th ult, and which culminated in the nomination of that incorrupti ble patriot Samuel Merrill for Governor. As the 4th resolution of the series alludes to '"economy" and "a fRithful and rigidly honest administration of public 'affairs," we deem it not inoportune to intro duce the Editor of the Mac-a Cheek, (0.) Press as tending to show how they managed during the late lamented administration of our Martyr President. Permit us to add that the press ranks as one of the ablest and shtunchest. republi can papers of Ohio, its Editor hav ing held a position under Mr. Lincoln at Washington. And as Mr. Lincoln is their type of an hon est man wc presume they in that resolution mean nothing more than a further exemplification of the hon est virtues portrayed in hi? admin istration by what the Press savs. "It was almost impossible to lay hands on an official and not tuuidi a man not made rich through his position. This was especially the oase with 'the moneyed offices. Honest men stood aghast at the impunity with which stealing went on. All cries of shame and out rage seemed unavailing. All oppo sition was thrown away. Theives were turned out to be succeeded by theives, and cMlossal: fortunes were mada in an hour. The amiable old president cracked jokes over the rascality, and safd'in his appoint ments lie had totun his hand into a saek of snakes to find ONE KEL. Among the later .ets of congress that preceded his dc&th, 'was an in vestig.'ition'of the cotton frauds, and out of a great number of permits to steal three-fourths of them were signed by the president." RESOLrTfONS. Wc, tho representatives of the republican voters of the state of Iowa, in convention assembled, an nounce the following as the.platform of our principles cla"m it as'a cardinal principle of our political faith, that all men are equal before tbe law, and wo arc in favor of such amendment to the constitution of the state of Iowa as will secure the right of the ballot, the protection of the law and eqtia/ justice to all men, irrespective of color, race or religion. Resolved, That we approve of the military reconstruction acts passed by the thirty-ninth and for tieth congresses, but as the liberal construction by unfriendly officials deprives those acts of their energy and vitality, wc demand that con gress assembles 1 out, by additional enactment, the true and original intent of said act. tho reconstruction of the rebel states upon a sure and loyal basis. Resolved, That we are in favor of the strictest economy in the ex penditure of public money, ami we demand at the bands of all our offi cials, both state and national, a rigidly honest administration of pnb lic affairs. Resolved, That the republican members of the Coagress of the United States are entitle^ to the thanks of the nation for their firm ness in resisting the conspiracy to turn over the control of the govern ment to the hands of traitors and their allies, aud in defeating the purposes of a corrupt executive, and thus sustttining the honor rnd integ rity of the nation, and protecting tho interests of liberty in a great and dangerdrtis crisis of Wr history. How the Indians Telegraph A Denver letter in the New York TRIBUNB, in relation to the at titude of the Indian tribes in the Platto Valley towards the whites, describes the peculiar methods they possess of telegraphing to each oth er the movements of the military. They can see every train, and every military movement in the val ley without exposing themselves even to discovery. The unbroken range of bluffs which skirt tho val ley of the «outh, command a com plete view of the entire riatte re gion. Their spies occupy the bluffs constantly, and as they have good field-glassesi which th»y purchaa from the traders^ they can distin guish every movement for twei miles. It seems impossib,. t" Eastern readers that they cm readily ascertain every moveai.Jit. but when it is considered, .tha* 'i •train can be seen distinctly or. the Iplain ten miles distant vilh U:e. naked eye, it need's no .argumer.i to hold that the Indjans, with fitlld-glassess, knew ever military movement as soon as it is'common'* ed. During all last week they were !signalling from the Southern Bluffs southward toward the Kcpubiic.?ti They signal easily for'tv emy mile* with a lighted arrow, which th'oy shoot into the air, and they *an jgive any communication JTrom bluff to bluff in that way. During the I day they signal by varions methods. Sometimes they do so by a pocket looking-glass. The.y get the focus of the sun, make the 'reflection visi I blc for five miles and tbtts diroct the movements of parties to suoh •points as they may wish.

Pleasant, is th-o largest in the United States, being just one inch larger each way than the asylum in Massachusetts. It is a close pull between Iowa and Massachusetts, but Iowa is an inch ahead. Perhaps radical politics in these states may render necessary a correspondingly large ar'.ominodationiii asylum* for the insane.—Bubivqwc Herald. 9 Resolved, That the prompt trial and punishment, according to law, of the chief of the late rebellion for his infamous crimes, is imperative ly demanded for the vindication of the constitution and the daw and i for the proper .punishment of the highest crime. It is demanded by justice, honor, and a proper regard for the duties of American citizen ship. and by a due regard for the welfare and future safety of the re public, and it is due not only to the dignity of the nation, but in justice to the loyal people who have been so heroic in their devotion to the cause of the constitution, tho Union, and liberty, and to the (soldiers of the Union who survive, aud to the army of the heroic dead.
