THE LIBERAL CONVENTION.
Ae 6tated last week, ihe Liberal
Convention at Davenport, waß a
weak affair. Niueteeu counties onl>
were represented. B. Gratz Brown
*of Mo., J. B. Grinnell, Fitz Henry
Warren, Jake Butler, and other
sore-heads run the concern. T.he
sotumif.ee on plaltorm, (Dr. J. P.
Gruwell of this city being a member)
reported the following which was
adopted:
“We the Republican* of lowa, believe that the
present administration and the office bolder*
throughout the country have assumed unconsti
tutional authority, and are endeavoring to sub
vert the Republican party to their own personal
interests, and the retention of themselves, tneir
relative* and personal friend* in office, and maae
the best interest* of the country secondary and
eubservient to party ; and believing that the p -
ple of the country are on the eve ° f h ?
an honest goverrment, and i)mp»tliltiDK
the Liberal movement throughout the countrj
M-nomlnalioti oIU.
8. Urant to the Presidency and will ouno account
give him in our cordial support.
h That we will support any one of the many good
and able men of the party of the first place in the
gift of the people, nominated upon a platiorm of
honesty, economy, universal amnesty, thorough
genuine reform and the one-term principle for the
presidency.”
Read the first line again: “We
the Republicans of lowa.” This
is rather broad ground considering
that only nineteen counties had any
representation at all, and mauy ol
those were self-appointed delega
tions without the sanction ol the Con
vention. But just to think that “we
the Republicans of lowa,” meau
mg Porter Clay Welch, Pcto Ball
ingall, H. E. J. Boardman, Geo. W.
Stevers, G. W. Cleveland, P. F. Bar
tie, and many more of the leading
spirits who never voted a Republican
ticket or felt one throb of sympathy
for the Republican cause ; and Col.
Mackey, hoD. Jno. Ball, ol Jefter
son, Fitz Henry Warren, and
many others left the party years
ago because they could not get
office: Now calling them selves
“we tie Republicans of lowa.”
That i 6 a joke. In March a Repub
lican Convention was called at Des
Moines to elect delegates to the
Philadelphia Convention, at which
over 600 delegates w* ro present,
representing every county in the State.
Yet here in April we find a niat>a
Convention, composed of less than
100 delegates, mostly trom Scott
county at that, representing 19 coun
ties call themselves, “we, the Re
publicans of lowa.” Such cool im
pudence would be retresbing about
mid-summer. The Davenport Ga
zette says : “If any one can tell just
what ‘Liberal Republicanism’ means
in lowa, or just what its professors
propose to do, or would desire to see
accomplished in relation to National
politics, except to defeat Grant on
strictly personal grounds, he will
have learned more than did or could
the most attentive of those who were
present at the convention from the
beginning to its close. The silence
of the platform as to any direct issue
with the Republican party, or any
one principle or measure, well illus
trates the character of the conven
tion in all of its proceedings and in
every utterance of its members. No
one of the speakers, not even “the
lather of the reform movement,”
Governor 11. Gratz Brown, so much
as attempted to set forth the princi
ples in behalf of which the “Lib
eral movement,’ is professedly
prosecuted. The question ol
revenue, of tariff, of taxation
*fcc., were entirely ignored. Civil
reform was only incidentally re
ferred to, and whichout the slightest
attempt to define what sort of reform
is desired or how sought to be ac- j
complished. Amnesty was dwelt j
upon by Gov. Brown only, and by
him only to run a wholly imagina
ry parallel between North Carolina
under a proscriptive policy” and
Missouri under the “policy ol Liber
alism.” But here the Governor’s
sophistry was so patent to any one
at all acquainted with the history ol
the respective States named, that
his efforts proved a signal failure.
In a single particular, however,
the convention did demonstrate facts
not before quite apparant. It did
prove that while in lowa the “Liber
als” are compelled to sail under Re
publican colors, some of the would
be leaders have not well learned
their parts; and hence, as did Mr.
Grinnell, must let out their old-time
ideas of the “out at elbows, out at
knee.- 4 , and out ai toes ’ Democi a
cy. It proved, also, that a feu
heretofore Davenport Democrats ar«
quite ready to swallow, or to i>»
s in any political organize
ti >i that promises hostility to the
re4ular Republican nominees. In
all else, and in poverty of ideas even
m »re than in sparseness of numbers,
t te much-heralded convention was a
p liable fiasco. No wonder Govern
or Brown incontinently fled from tbe
scene, and could not be induced to
hold forth in the evening. No won
der even J. B. Grinnell was glad to
hasten to look after his Poweshiek
county lambs. No wonder the Bur
tis Opera House, shrouded in dark
ness, was substituted for the “grand
rally” advertised for last night as
the closing triumph of the Liberals
in Iowa!”
Gov. Brown told the Daven
port Convention to look at Missouri
as an example of his rule, (he did
not take it until thoroughly recon
structed) and then at North Caro
lina under the.rule of the administra
tion, and see the difference. Almost
as he spoke, a mob in Cass county,
Mo., stopped the train on the Missou
ri, Kansas & Texas road and mur
dered three passengers in cold blood,
and now having swelled their num
bers to 1500 men bid defiance to law
and order, and propose to murder
not only all whom they designate as
‘ bond swindlers,” but any person
who sympathizes with them, or de
crys the deed of blood. Brown has
proclaimed against them, and will
enforce the law.
Jak.b Butler told the Liberals
at Davenport, that he hoped the
Germans and Democrats of that Dis
trict would unite and defeat the Re
publican nominee for Congress. This
is as good evidence as we need that
Jake is still hankering after that flesh
pot and will be found on the track
for Congressional nomination With
the mongrel., ». be he. ulw.y. been
with the Republics*. Poor Jehtf.

CAPITAL CORRESPONDENCE.
The Last for a Season.
The closing hours of the General As
sembly were as usual fraught with
much business, though I believe but
little of the hasty legislation so often
disastrous, was done.
A resolution was adopted which
provided that the Board of New
Capitol Commissioners should have
power to modify, or, with consent of
the contractors, cancel the contract
with Tuttle & Robertson for the re
mainder of the stone required for
the completion of the foundation and
cellar walls of the new capitol build
ing, upon such terms as the Board
should deem just, and lor the best
interests of the State, but that such
contract should not be modified or al
tered so as to release said contract
ors from any damages sustained by
reason of the poor material hereto
fore provided.
The ‘gentleman from over the sea,’
“Barnacle Hasson,” made one more
thrust at the papers and the people,
in the closing hours of the session,
by recommending a bill from Com
mittee on Ways and Means, provi
ding for the publication of 50,000
slips containing the laws, for general
distribution; tbe people would never
see one in one hundred. It is a
gratification to know, that notwith
standing the extraordinary labors of
that gent and his friends, the law
was not changed at all, so the thou
sands and thousands of dollars of
time they expended “barnacling,”
was lost to the State, and worse
than lost to them.
A joint resolution was adopted
providing for a change in the State
Constitution so that County Attorn
eys should be elected in place of
District Attorneys.
Our friend “economical” (?1 Cald
well got his foot in it in the House
badly. When the appropriation bill
came in, he opposed some parts of it
with all the vim in him, declaring
that under no circumstances would
he vote for it: that he would rather
see the whole thing fail; that he
would go home without his pay be
fore he would consent to it, etc.
Just then Ainsworth introduced a
resolution, which passed, asking the
Treasurer to give a statement of all
members who had drawn money,
with the amounts so drawn ; twenty
minutes after the report was present
ed by the Treasurer, and then it
was found that friend Caldwell had
drawn every cent he waß entitled to
for the whole session, and hence his
speech about his pay was all bun
combe. He couldn’t stand the pres
ure, and left that night for Dome,
and came back no more, as they ad
journed next day. The last hours ot
the session were marked by some
pleasing events, suggestive of the
gord will felt for the officers. The
Senate bought a beautiful tea set,
costing 8150, for presentation to Lt.
Gov. Bulis; and as he had been
called away a day or two before by
the sickness ot his sou, it was sent
him by express. Speaker Wilson
was presented with a gold-headed
cane and a handsome gold chain, val
ued at 8125. Assistant Secretaries of
the Senate presented Capt. Hull,
Seev, with a handsome copy of
Shakespeare, elegantly bound. At
11 o'clock precisely the gavel fell in
both Houses, and the Legislature
stood adjourned until *the third
Wednesday in January next.
1 have not attempted to particula
rize the last lew days session, for
the reason that the results will be
found in your columns “published by
authority,” and the gas you have
no particular interest in. The Reg
ister pays the assembly the follow
ing compliment :
“While there are those—of whom the number i*
ma ny—who have been writing thi* Legislature
dowu at one of the poorest the State ha* had, and
have been giving it credit for very little that i*
fjood. no person who honestly searches for the
cause for such opinion cau find reason for making
the censure general and the praise an exception.
We admit it i* a body which has had many par
ticular feature*, some not creditable—aud that lt
has not been tree from legislature queer. It ba*
been a fighting body. There ha* beeu not only
more sharp encounter* between member* in de
bate. than ha* been witnessed during any other
session, perhaps, but there ha* been more active,
determined, and exciting struggles of measures.
The struggle was commenced in a storm, and it
has never got to be peace. Rut one good result of
the stirring contest is to be noted In tbe lact that
in the strile the better men in the body have fl
nuily come to he recognized as it* master minds
md leaders Who will take the trouble to look
over the proceening* of the early part of the see
.■ion, and to compare them with the pr» ceed
ings of the latter part, will sec the men of
noise, who were then always on the floor, and in
► isting on being leaders, have since been gradu
-IHy setliug to their natuial level, and in tbe last
week have gone well nigh out of sght. As we
h «rd it , x ressed. yesterday, in the vernacular
of the farm, in the passage along the rough roads
i .er which the Legislature has passed, the small
;> taioes have all been shaken *0 tne bottom.
Tin men who made so mauy speeches on wind at
h< start have bad to give way to the better uten
who kept still till came the time for talk and ac
(ton:
Another noticeable thing, in thin connection, is
ha-, an ha* always been the cane, the men who
came to their neat* talking moat loudly of reform,
economy and the like, have been the poorest la
oi im in i hat direction They fed early, and fell
w;iboui fighting. There are two or three con
“pictoua m-tances of thin kind, which will long
r< main to monument the career and end of the
geutleim n in question, and not only that, but also
to point the certaiu way in which all men, who
tdiail hereafter claim to be more honest than all
other meu merely by pretending to be more
houest, will surely go.
As to the personal composition, and the quality
of the composition, of the gentlemen composing
the body, there has been much underrating or
misunderstanding. It has been widely asserted
that it has been the weakest company of men the
State has evet had gathered In the Legislative de
paitment. This is, on all sides of it, a mistake
For all that are acquainted w ith this, that, while
there may be in it more men of the class rated
as of the weak weakly than there was in the last
Legislature, there are more really strong men
than have ever before been in any one Legislature
in the State. It has been the misfortune of the
body, that it has allowed itself to be drawn into
unseemly and long protracted wrangles over pet
ty things—and by the actions on these small mat
ters, often unreasonable and sometimes ridicu
lous. it has been and will be judged more than by
its general course in matters pertaining to legiti
mate and dignified legislation. Its half dozen
demagogues, of glib tongues, restless purpose,
auo unappeasable thirst Tor the booty of notorie
ty, have been to the whole body very expensive
luxuries."
The Register reviewing the situa- j
tion at Cincinnati winds up as fol
lows : “Meantime, in the country at
large, now that the truth is well
known, that Cincinnati is merely a
swapping ground on which to meet
the Democratic party, the ranks of
Republicanism are closing up and the
b.ave old party mustering its legions
in ail the magnificence of its strength.
With Charles Sumner at a halt,,
aud with him many of those who
were looked upon as the very lead
ers of the movement, the Liberals
themselves feel a weakening loss
they cannot mend, while the Repub
lican party gathering its energies,
aud marshaling its forces, is moving
up to the battle with the same tri
umphaut tread as it moved forward
in the darker days than these, when
it lost the Sewards, the Chases, the
Henri J. Raymonds, the Cowans,
the Doolittles, and their many thou
sands of followers. It moves against
a power, whose cry was the war
slogan of the dead Confederacy,
“Forward against Grant,” and,
moving again, it moves now, as then,
with Grant at its bead and Victory
desoendiog upon its banners.”
In speaking ol the Davenport Con
vention, that excellent paper, tbe
Chioago Journal says: “Those
fellows got together yesterday at
Davenport. That ancient politician
dead-beat, Fitz Henry Warren, came
to the Iront first, but J. B. Grinnell,
who has been troubled with “grub in
the head” six years, managed to be
the most conspicuous man there. The
gathering was a mass meeting, and
had been very thoroughly advertised.
The result of all the drumming was
an attendance of less than a hundred.
A more beggarly showing was nev
er made. Even the Johnson move
ment, headed by this same Fitz Hen
ry Warren, was not such a perfect
fizzle and flat-out.”
The Chicago Journal after careful
ly canvassing the situation of affairs
in Illinois says: “ The Republican
party of Illinois is stronger to-day
than any time in its history , and with
Grant for President , Oglesby for
Governor , and a State ticket of good
and true men , its majority in Novem
ber will be larger than at any pre
vious election. This opinion is
based upon reliable assurances from
every part of the State, given by
men in whose judgment we have
the most complete confidence. Re-
sults will ratify its correctness in
due time.”
Gov. Palmer of Illinois, in a re
cent speech said : “The true Sepub
liean doctrine was that all restric
tions and all inequalities before the
law, and political disabilities, should
be removed, aud that all the peo
ple of the South should he in every
respect equal to those in any part of
the country.” It the speaker read
the President’s Message last winter
he will remember he urged this same
thiug; and the probability is that
but for Sumner, one of the anti-
Grants, it would now be in force.
Try again.
The New York * Tribune has a
column of letters from various States,
endorsing the Liberal movement.
lowa is represented by one from
“Hamlin” county. As we never
had such a county in the State, we
come to the conclusion that H. G.,
wrote those letters himself, and his
geography being at fault he dated
his letter at a point that never ex
isted. Try again Horace, and then
write a book on, “What I know
about Geography.”
The Washington correspondent of
tbe Pella Blade says: “Hon. M.
M. Walden presented to the House,
last week, a petition signed hy
residents of his district, asking for
legislation to prevent rail roads from
oppressing the people by reason of
extravagant charges for transporta
tions of grain and produce. The
petitioners endorse the sentiments
so ahlv set forth by Alr. Walden in
his speech on this subject, delivered
in the House some time since.”
Mr. Grinnell made the assertion
to the Chicago Times reporter that
he would take the Germans of
lowa over to Liberalism, through the
assistance of Carl Sehutz ; at which,
men of that nationality in various
sections are repudiating him.
Among them are Theodore Guelieh,
of the Burlington Tribune; Leopold
Mader ot the Council Bluffs Post ,
John Bereshieui member ol the
House from Pottawattamie, and oth
ers.
Of the three hundred delegates
sent to the Republican Convention
at Philadelphia, only thirteen are
federal office-holders. Of the dele
gates to the Cincinnati Convention,
two-thirds are disappointed office
seekers, and desire nothing so much
as to become office-holders, hut they
will fail in the future as they have iu
the past.

To those Liberals who console
themselves with the idea that they
still are Republicans, notwithstand
ing their summersault, we would
quote the language used by Jake
Butler at the Davenport Convention.
Hestpd: “This Convention desires
to see, not only the Republican par
ty in the 2d District, but in lowa,
buried.” And we do not doubt that
those are the honest sentiments of
the leaders ; however the rank and
file may feel.”
Some idea of the prospect of the
Liberals may be had by remember
ing that they put lowa in the list of
States they are going to carry.
When grass grows with the roots
upward, water runs up hill, sun
shines at midnight, Democrats quit
drinking whisky, and their editors
learn to tell the truth, then there may
be the remotest possibility that
lowa will forget her war record,
strike hands with the rebels and vote
their ticket, but not before.
A prominent Liberal ot this city
claimed that one of the corrupt prac
tices of the Republican party was
furnishing money to defray the ex
penses of delegates to Conventions.
We desire to call his attention to
the fact that the. Democratic clubs
in the South are pouring out their
stamps to pack tbe Cincinnati
Convention with Davis delegates.
Of course this Liberal movement is
pure.
The Lexington (Ko) Caucasian ,
one ot the most prominent Liberal
papers, lays down its platform,
which they ask Cincinnati to adopt,
as follows :
i “The Liberal Reform ” “White Supremacy and
j Republicism.’' “This ie a White Man’s Govern
ment, made by white men, for YVhite men, and
their prosperity, forever.’’ “Down with The 15th
j Bedarnnedment." “ Total Repudiation of tbe Mon
strous Yanket War Debt! Tha* Accursed, Un
[ constitutional Burden, accumulated by an Un
constitutional Mob styling itself a Congress, iu
tbe prosecution of an Unconstitutional crusade
for the Accomplishment of an Unconstitutional
and Horrid Impose!” “Down with Bondhold
ers and taxation.” " Kauai taxation find the Right
ful Representation of all the States* or Another Re
\ hellion..'
London despatch, 26th lilt., says
Rumors of a terrible disaster near
Mount Vesuvius are current in that
city. The reports are that of the
number of persons whose curiosity
led them too near the volcano, sixty
were killed and wounded hy a show
er ot lava.
It is expected that the National
Democratic Convention will be held
at St. Louis, July 4 ; unless Cincin
nati should give them an unusually
favorable ticket.
The KuKluk in Jefferson, Arkansas, re
cently burned the jaU in which was con
fined a uegro prisoner, literally Toasting
him alive. Parties attempting his rescue
were fired upolt aud driven back
Spain is glorying in another revo
lution just now. It is said to he
quite formidable.
Five more miners burned in the
Scranton, Pa., mines.
John Jay Knox was appointed
Comptroller of Currency on the 24th.
The Springfield Journal publishes
a list of sixty-eight Republican news
papers in Illinois that denounce the
Cincinnati movement, w’hilst only
one favors it. Considering that our
S ate furnishes three candidates for
the Cincinnati nomination, this does
not look very encouraging. And
yet the list does not embrace nearly
all the Republican press of the State
that are trusted and true. Illinois
will he found amongst the foremost in
her fidelity to the Republican party.
