The Herald Deserte Grant and Flops
Over to Greeley.
[From the New Tori Herald.]
Can General Grant see the Importance of
the Ci D ci ? nai 1 movement ? He ought to learn
from that how much his popularity has been
and is waning. He, undoubtedly, is honest,
and means to do the best for the country; but
he has truBted to others who have misted bim
and brought bis administration into public
disfavor. The people are weary and disgusted
with the Washington Treaty muddle, the
disgraceful and pain lui condition of affairs In
the Southern States, the tendency of the gov-1
ernment to mllltary^t-arbltrary assumption of
power, and other evils%hic!r have been forci?
bly exposed at Cincinnati, have made the
administration unpopular. Outside of the
office-holders, there ls no enthusiasm or
affection for it. For General Grant, per?
sonally, the people still have much
respect, but little or none for his
administration. Unless he changes his course
and the cabinet he will run a great risk ot
being defeated next November. Finding his
popularity declining, the Philadelphia Con?
vention even might consider the propriety of
Bettine him asi ie, and either accept, the Cin?
cinnati nominees or enter into aa agreement
with t$em to take up new men acceptable to
all Republicans. Politicians do not stick long
to a sinking cause.
. The' Man to Wm.
[Prom the New York Su - day News.]
We do not endorse the Cincinnati platform.
We do not ask. nor do we desire that the
Democratic Convention shall endorse lt. We
even hope that Mr. Greeley will be slow to
commit bimsell to some of its declarations,
which we believe to have been hastily and in?
advertently made; but we do endorse his nom?
ination, and shall urge the Demucratlc Con?
vent lon to do so-not that be is exactly the
candidate that we would preter, bu*, because
we believe that we can elect him.
A Voice from a Weitera Organ.
[From the SE. Loots Republican.]
Democrats are American citizens and Amer?
ican patriots, and because they are such lt is
bot.i their right and their duly to lake part la
the struggle now beglnoing. What will that
part be ? They will not hail the division In
the Republican party as a mere party oppor?
tunity and obtrude a new ticket of their own
between the contending factions. That would
forfeit the popular good will and moral power
which their patrol lc self-denial of the last
three montbB bas given them, it would be?
numb the country with a chill of a cruel dis?
appointment, revive at the North , all the
former war bitterness against Democracy,
and disable them to profit in local contests by '
Republican schism: nay, lt would do more,.lt
would destroy the very opportunity that they
seek to advantage; lt would crush the Liberal
vote, break its line of battle, disperse its ad?
herents and Insure the re-election of Grant.
The Democratic party cannot commit this
enormoiflf folly. It bas made many mistakes
and blunders, but it cannot, with Its eyes wide
open, forfeit its magnificent future by making
BO moment ns a blunder as this.
Plsln Talk from the Old Dominion.
.V ' [From the Richmond Dispatch.]
Let ihbe understood that the South ls tired
of nghffbg hopeless battles, and will in no
case go with the Democrats should they be so
wayward and Impracticable as to nominate a
That a ticket so nominated, with the cer?
tainty that it would secure the triumph of the
dominant party, would be regarded as antag?
onistic to the South and against the peace ot
the Union, and therefore to'be treated as lt
lt had been gotten up in the interest ol
That the country demands peace, which
can be assured in no earthly way save by the
breaking ur ol the war party and the form?
ing of an e J ti rely new party, freed from the
hates and au^quated crotchets of old parties
that would only vex and complicate public
affairs, and continue Irritation and restless- -
ness in the public mind.
That If lt were possible to elect a Demo
crallc|Pre8tdent he would be situated very
much like President Johnson, having the
name of President, but being se tied and
manacled BB to (je able to do nothing. He
would be a mere fly in the spider's nest, eu
veloped in a web and not even able to lift a
wing or move a leg.
That If Horace Greeley ls elected he will,
more than, probably, be able to combine a
majority of Congress to support his measures;
and thus we shall have an efficient and har?
monious government-^ne laboring to main?
tain the power and glory of the nation and
the harmony and contentment of the people.
That with these convictions which are en?
tertained, we believe, by the whole South,
no third Presidential ticket will meet with
favor here. Any movement to form such a
ticket will be looked upon as hostile to our
And, finally, the two hobbies of Mr. Greeley
delng disposed of: 'abolition by expiration,
and protection by making it optional with the
congressional districts-and he being liberal
and l'ailr towards the South, and ardently de?
siring the peace of the Union, the S .rath will
support him. The race is considered to be
made up, the horses saddled, the riders are In
their seats, and no new entry is to be thought
of. T' e South cannot, with justice to itself or
to the Union, think ol another.
These are things that should be well under?
Horace Greeley'* Strength Among the
[From the Cincinnati Commercial ]
Among the things that are hkely to be ob?
jectionable in the candidacy of Mr. Greeley,
a want of popular strength will not, in our
opliMon, be numbered. We have no doubt of
the immediate and thorough co-operation of
the Democratic party in the Greeley move?
ment. Under these conditions the strength
of Mr. Greeley In the South will be over?
whelming. The colored people have much
confidence in him, and the old Confederates,
will remember x his magnanimity in ball?
ing their chief, and the generous measure
of amnesty with which it bas beeen hli
wish to soften the rudeness of their calamity.
The general result ie that Mr. Greeley 1B BO
popular in the South, and 'tho conditions of
the canvass are likely to be such, that he will
carry every State south of the Potomac, the
Ohio and the Missouri Rivers. There will be
a flood In that land that will not leave a dry
spot sticking out from tiie Chesapeake to the
Rio Grande. The undoubted protective doc?
trines of Mr. Greeley will give him immense
strength in Pennsylvania, which, confronted
by the weakness ot the Republican State Ring
ticket, gives him a bond for that S at>*. New
York may be counted certain for Greeley by
an enormous majority, and, indeed, if the
Democracy will not make a nomination, and
the Philadelphia Convention nominates Grant,
it will be difficult to na&e a State as certain
for the official and regular Republican candi?
Greeley and the Negroes.
[Ft om the Harrisburg (Pa.) Patriot.]
In the Sooth the name of Horace Greeley
will prove a tower of strength. The humane
and generous appeals which he addressed to
the victorious North In favor of the people of
the Sooth have gained him a place In the
hearts of the people of that section which no
other Northern man possesses Had bis ad?
vice been accepted in the wise and philan?
thropic spirit In which it was tendered, the
evils which carpet-bag rule under military
protection has inflicted would never have
taken root. This Is one of his highest claims
to rank as a statesman. While he possesses
the confidence and affection of the educated
white men of the South, his nomination will
draw the greater portion of the negro vote
from Grant There is not the remotest negro
cabin on the Nueces or the Arkansas in which
the name of Massa Greeley is not pronounced.
Grant Can't Beat Ulm.
[From the Springfleld Repub.lcas. j
It is hardly tco much to say th?t Horace
Greeley is as widely liked as known. Those
who laugh at him oftenest and loudest gene?
rally have a warm spot, for him in their hearts.
Years have brought to him something of the
philosophic mind. He bas got out of the nar?
row rut of partisanship. And all the while that
he has been growing away from his old ene?
mies, and prejudices, and "crotchets." he has
been growing into the respect and affection of
bis countrymen. Mr. Greeley's popularity ls
no myth. He is as strong with the ex-slave?
holders as with the ex-slaves; with the irish
laborers as with the native born farmers who

A most heartrending accident occurre
twelve miles southeast of this pince b'aturda

seventeen years of age, the daughter of Mi

for the amnesty bill for the purpose ot giving

however, that there was very little chance ol
an amnesty bill passing the Senate until the

on the civil rights bill.
