. If oppositlou to incompetent or dis
honest candidates is tole held as treason
to political principle, bow are personal
fraud and corruption to be ever removed
from the places of power to which they
may have attained ?
- Tbk adjournment of our Legislature
ha been definitely fixed for the 29th
Inst., bo that but little over a week now
remains la which to carry through the
uccesifully Accomplish tlii requires un
remitting labor", -and it Is to be hoped
that we have seen the eud of those ex
hibitions that have so frequently dis
graced the assembly during the past
winter. Fully enough of the people's
time and" the people's money have been
squandered to gratify personal ambition
or personal spite, and common justiee
would now require that some , attempt,
at least, should be made to accomplish
work, which the publie weal . requires.
And it is but fair to nay that since the
resolution, for adjournment was adopted,
there has been a marked improvement
hi the disposition of the members to
take up' and consider those measures of
tublic iuiDoi tance which have hitherto
been suffered to lie neglected. Ten
days of hard labor can accomplish much
and. jvelmst that the 29th will see most
of the matters finished, without that in
considerate unh which too often Char
acterize!! the closing days of a 'Legisla

The great political meeting which was
held at. Cooper Institute, iaN'ev York,
on Friday evening last, was one of the
largest gatherings ever witnessed in that
city'. 'At an early hour ever seat and all
available ..standing room was packed
withi a.;densc mass, of people, while
vrowds .were forced to go away, unable
to gain admission.
' So far. as we are able to judge, the an-

intelligent class, whose sympathies aud

abuses and enforce the' honest, efficient
and able administration of the .Govern

curiosity, but the enthusiastic applause
which: was so -frequently, during the
evening' accorded ' to' '" the speakers.
proved that a majority," at least, of those
nresent received, with favor thestate-
, merits anil argument advanced by . Sen
ators Trumbull and Schurtz, !
The speeches -were both of them able
and clear statements of the charges made
by the ' so-called liberal . HfepublieaH3
against the present administration.' They
were forcible and to tlie point and, what
ever may be the result of the new move
ment, these expressions have at all events
placed the possibility of misconception
as to its views and position, entirely out
of the question. -
There were speeches also made by
Horace Greeley and others, while letters
were read from a number pfdistinguished
statesmen, whose duties elsewhere rcn
dercd their attendance impossible. These
were all unanimouf in their condemna
tion' of the present administration, and
enthusiastic in their support and adhe
rence to the newmovement of which this
meeting waa the first organized expres-
eio'rt." ' -

What should be the political course of
France Is apparent to every thought
ful observer. What will be the policy
adopted by that brilliant, unstable na
tion is not by any means equally plain
With a debt of twenty thousand million
of. francs and a neighbor who can, in
tw6nty days, put in motion a military
forcq of from six to seven hundred thou-
and men, it would seem as if they ougl
to recognize the necessity of self-control
of adherence to the present form of gov
erumen't and' of the repression of that
peculiar characteristic of ; instability
which has. so often before ' wrought dis
aster to that country. But the lesson
one that appears impossible for them. ever
to learn, ' Thosc extremi3ts'who will ac
knowledge no. necessity, however imper
ative or manifest it may: be, are alway
able to jflnd' enough followers, among
that fickle, thoughtless people, to render
any scheme of rational government ex
tremely problematical.
Clearly the first and most imperativ
duty, to which every energylof body and
mind should be bent, is' to pay off the
national liabilities and obtain the evacu
ation of those provinces now held by the
Prussians. j'To accomplish this requires
firm -patient : support of the present
form pf government. The Republic is
an actual fact; it: exists as the power
which obtained terms ot peace from , the
Germans; it is the organization , whose
faith has been taken as a guarantee for
the payment of the war-indemnity; it
the authority upon whose existence de
pends lhe observance of the terms of the
treaty on the part of Prussia. " Once dis-
turbed or destroyed aud the Cabinet of
Berlfh-really' uneasy 'or : accepting 'flic
opportunity . to preteud to be so would
demand .additional guarantees for the
payment of the indemnity, the natnre of
which no one can foresee. ' "!," "
But all these facts are overlooked or
ignored by those schemers w ho flatter
themselves that if they , can overthrow
that which now exists they will be able
ioflnd places for ' themselves under a
new regime. The consequence is that
plots and counterplots,- distrust and sus
picion mark the present state- of affairs
In France. Late advices tell us that ex
pressions of disapproval of the present
administration are becoming common,
and that strong Bonapartist manifesta
tions have been given by the people in
various parts of the country. Were
France other than she is,these might pass
for mere nothing, but as made by a peo
ple the most peculiar of any in Europe,
they possess a deeper significance. "
While it may be doubted whether Na
poleon- will ever again become the arbi
trator of the destinies of France, it is
still more a matter of doubt whether the
present Republic has that hold upon the
public which will ensure its permanence
AT THE CAFTAN'S OFFICE.
. During rue past wcefc mauy ot our
subscribers, who receive their papers
through the mail, have been favored with
a circular letter, dated at the Postoffice
In this place and signed by Geo. E.
Paine as Postmaster. Concerning this,
one word of explanation :
'- For some time in fact, ever since the
commencement of the publication of the
JouBMAii we have experienced, great dif
ficulty in securing its prompt aud regu
lar transmission through the mails. Ya-
riou-s and continued complaints have
come to lis and have been by us, in turn,
laid before the ' Postmaster here, but
w Ithout t effecting ,any lessening of the
annoyance. . . Finally, finding that noth
ing Tould be accomplished by mere local
means wc laid the matter before the De
partment at Washington, with a retpiest

and forward the desired statement to
our energetic Postmaster. ThVpeculiar
and slightly arrogant phraseology of the

characteristic mod of- expression, -ttd

from them we bespeak a consideration
that will lead them to overlook it. . ,' "'
The publication of our letter to the De-
partment is so much a matter of good
taste that we should not refer to It except
for the mauuer. in which it' was ot-
tined. Failing to procure a copy from
the. Department at Washington., . Mr.
aine asked us if we bad any objection
to furnish one to him, as he desired it for
tus own private use. n uiiug to oonge,
we at once placed our letter-book at bis
disposal, but with no idea that he in
tended to bring the communication be
fore the public. As we had not the slight
est objection to its publication, and as
we would have furnished a copy for
that purpose as quickly as for any other,
we oniy Vegret, for Mr. Paine's sake,
that he considered it necessary to de
scend to any subterfuge. "
But now that Mr. Paine has actually
taken the matter in hand, we feel confi
dent in assuring our readers that beyond
a doubt we shall be able to secure for!
them the benefits of a certain and regu
lar reception of their uaiiers. And we
feel the more positive that otir anticipa
tions in this respect w ill be realized, from
the merited reputation, which Mr. 'Paine
enjoys as successful business man.
With, his well-known energy, persever
ance,, and . indomitable 'tick-to-ative-
ness,"it is of course impossible for'him
to fail in remedying the an'noyauces to
which we have been subjected. Wheth
er as a projector of railroads, a promoter 1
of manutacturing interests, ujuiaiingcr of
patriotic military movement-J, a statisti
cian, a politician, or a Postmaster, Mr.
Paine has always carried every plan
through to so successful a completion,
that we feel the fullest confidence, in his
ability to do the same in the present in
stance. ".':.'u Utenrltn. ..
The, AldUe, for May has just arrived
giving further proot of the wonderlul
progressive power of its -conductors,both
in the art and literary departments! It
is, indeed,' a triumph for America that
its youthful civilization has given to the
art - world -u publication so unique .in
conception - and ho excellent in its de
velopment as the Aldine. At the dinner
receutly eivcu Dy trie publisher to the
artists and literati of the country, Prof.
Cattell, President of Lafayette College,
spoke as follows ; : "The success of t he.
UUine, lite the growing power and in
fluence of the great colleges, is oue of
the-uiost hopeful signs for the future of
our eouutry. Kvery American is proud
to know thst we have now great schools
both for liberal culture and applied
science equal to those abroad where the
past generation were compelled to send
their sons;.ana witn equal pride we
point to such publications as the Ahliue,
in which the scholarship, and the. ele
gant and varied culture of our age is
presented in a style of typography equal
to that of the oldest and best publishing
house in the world. Iteterenee has oeen
made to the great excellence of its en
gravings." This feature of the magazine
had impressed the speaker equally with
the elevating and instructive character
of its reading matter. : Our busy .practi
cal people need such an education to
wards the appreciation of the beautiful.
The Aldine has entered upon a mission
field, where the prospects w ere not very
encouraging, and it is certainly a great
triumph of its able and. enterprising
publishers that they have already wou
for it such a great success. From the
start thev made great claims for it, and
the subscription list shows that the pub
lic responses are quickly setup' in the
emphatic style known as 'double caps.'
And the increasing circulation of the
Aldine is something not onlv for the
publishers to be cheerful about: It
show?, that, after all, there is somewhere
among our people an appreciation of
what is first-class in art as well as in
literature. Let us cultivate this and it
will bear abundant and goodly fruit
With the accession to the management
of the Aldine of our learned and accom
plished friend, honored iu all the re
public of letters,-the increased circula
tion ot the magazine anu its large emci
encv in: promoting a love for the true
aud beautiful Is not so much a prophecv
as the statement of an accomplished
fact." - ..,

there were two or three petitions rela

bills introduced. There were also six
bills for local relief ou local control

interment of the dead, and keeping a
proper record of deaths and burials, and
guarding against the spread of infectious
diseases, and which was passed. On
Thursday there were seven new bills in
troduced and oue. passed. Mr. Stevens'
redistrieting bill came up but was finally
referred for amendment, without any ac
tion being taken. On Friday six peti

extraordinary mistake or oversight no
new bills were introduced. During the
day eight bills were passed among which
were Mr. Brinsmade's Senate bill to so
amend the act concerning divorce and
alimony as to authorize the court to also
grant an allowance for sustenaneo of mi

the following conclusions : First f hat
the act of Congress of the 20th of July,
186S, authorizing the sale of unsuitable
arms, gave, by a lair interpretation ot
its letter aud spirit, full. authority to the
Secretary of War to sell aud dispose of
tlie arms aud ordnance stores in ques
tion, aud that iu doiug .so he violated
neither the letter uor the spirit of the
law. . Second That the proceeds of the
sales were promptly paid into the treas

to any known agent of either of the bel
ligerent governments, and that no act
was done by .the Secretary ot War, or auy
of his subordinates, that was calculated
to impair or violate any international
obligation. Fourth That no official of
the United States Government was pecu

sjuch sales. Fifth that the only party
benefitted was the L nited States, in hav

The estimated reduction on the dutv
received in 1871 is on tea $3,626,710, cof-
lee$y,070,4S0.' Iu addition to-these re
ductions, the committee endeavored to
throw saleguards around the adminis
tration of tlie Custom House, and has
greatly simplified the laws pertaining
to internal revenue, it hits consolidated
into an equivclent tax of .65 cen;s
nearly all of the several taxes on whis
ky. It has removed many annoying and
restrictive provisions ot the existing
law obstructing the business of the dis
tiller, and harrassing commerce in that
article. It has provided, instead ot six
cents for smoking tobacco, and thirty
two cents for chewing tobacco,, a uni
form tax of twenty cents per pound on
all kiuds of tobacco, aud has, at the
same time, provided a safe method for
exporting tobacco, a well as spir
its, directly from the manufacturer,
without tin; cumbersome and unsatisfac
tory drawbacks of tlie existing law, and
it has been its endeavor, while reducing
taxation, to make more efficient, and if
possible at the same time less burden
some and annoying laws, that shall en
force the duties and taxes which re
main. At the conclusion of Mr. Dawe's
remarks, Mr. Maynard asked and ob
tained leave to introduce the bill on
which himself and Mr. Kelley, as a mi
nority of the committee, hadagreed. It
is entitled " A bill for further reduction
of taxes and promotion of commerce."
It puts internal taxes first. It makes
tea and coffee free, with other additions
to the free list. It- adopts the ten per
cent, reduction-provision of the Senate
bill as to many of the articles embraced
in it. It puts the rate of tobacco at six
teen cents per pound uniform, , aud it
permits the Secretary of. the- Treasury,
under such regulations as he may pre
scribe, to maintain tobacco ware-houses.
It also provides a consolidated tax of
s'rxty-five cents on spirits, but abolishes
the tax on sales of spirits, but abol
ishes about half the stamps included iu
schedule B. The measure makes a re
duction of $30,000,000 from two sources
of rcveuue, and provides for-diminution
of the force of the internal revenue
service to the extent of half the num
ber of employes and expenses.

That we, in the name of the colored peo

vention, held at Columbus, Ohio; also
the Convention of Liberal Republicans,
called for the first of May, at Cincinnati.
Referred to the Committee on resolu
tions. Mr. Harolson said that there
were but two political parties in this
county, the Republican and the Demo
cratic. The Cincinnati Convention was
a Democratic convention-. Lieutenant
Governor Pinchback opposed the pas
sage ot the resolution, as it carried on
its face the eoiidcmdation of Charles
Sumner. He (Pinchback) would re
main here iu convention a long time
before his voice should be raised to con
demn Sumner.

when the war began we heard this was
a white man's government and a white
man's war. Xo negro should have a
hand in it. Even Abraham Lincoln at
first denied us, but at last he was with
us. His object was to save the Union,
and when the fight became severe he
learned wisdom. Not until the armies
were swept away, not until they saw
the Star Spangled Banner1 trampled in
dust aud blood by victorious rebels did
they call on us. Thus the preservation
of the Union was through us in part. I
do not say we saved the. Republic, , but
we had a hand in it, and so deserve our
freedom. ..He stated he had been denied
hotel accommodations since lie left
Washington, and advised the use of
moral and political powers to bring
about- a speedy change in this respect.
We are more indebted to the federal
government., than to the fcjtate for what
rights we have, and so we should sup
port it. He stated that the party led by
Trumbiill aud Schurz favored State
rights.. Iu that parly he had no confi
dence. But the Republican party must
come up higher. .Though General
Grant is an honorable man, and one for
whom I expect to vote cheers? yet tlie
'Republican party has now a imui at

uud is a minority in himself a man at

man is Charles Sumner. .Applause..' I

But Sumner is steady. He is no flicker

worked for the Republieau party, and 1
hope I may cease forever if I cease to
give all honor to Charles Stunner. On

A srreat meeting was held in Xew York
Friday evening last to advocate to Lib
eral Republican policy of the approach
ing Cincinnati Convention. It was one
of' the largest in numbers and most im
posing in composition ever held in the
city. An hour before the commencement
of the meeting, Cooper Institute was
thronged to its"iitmost capacity and thou
sands clamored in vain for admission,
and failing to find it remained for hours
outside the building. Every seat was
occupied and the aisles from the plat
form upward were densely crowded. The
audience was an eminently -respectable
and representative one. The platform
was literally packed with men promi
nent in the political and social circles of
Xew York, among whom were Horace
Greeley, Sinclair Tousey, Moses II. Grin
nell, Hiram Barney, Marshall O. Rob
erts, George Wilkes, Frank Lislie, John
A. Dix and a large number of other
prominent men. About halt past seven
the densely crowded audience began to
manifest some impatience to witness the
opening proceedings. To meet this de
mand the list of Republican oflieers who
had signed the call for the Cincinnati
I Convention was read. Tlie names of
- ; many of them were received With loud
cheers. The meeting was then called to
order by Ethan Allen, who said : "Fel
low Citizens: As one of the committee
who signed the call for this immense
mass meeting, assembled in the interest
of this political partv and reform, I have
the honor to nominate as your President
Colonel Frederick A. Conkling." The
nomination was at once enthusiastically
indorsed. Colonel Conkling on coming
forward was greeted bv heartv cheers. !
He said: "Fellow Republicans: We
are honored by the presence to-night of
two of the most distinguished statesmen
of the Republic. Great applause. One
of thsm was born in Xew England,
and the other on the Rhine. Cheers.!
Both of them sire representatives of the
imperial west, which in all coming time
is to control tlie destiny of our common
country, Lyman Trumbull of Illinois and
Carl Schurz of Missouri. Prolonged
cheering. It is hardly necessary for
me to say that throughout tue lengtlrand
breadth of the land, the names of both
are associated with defense of constiiu
tional liberty, and of rights of local self
government with restriction of delegated
power, and with firm and unfaltering
advocacy of the rights of the masses.
Applause. In view of the near ap
proach of the Presidential election, they
have consented to leave places In the Sen
ate of the United States, for the purpose
of addressing us, not upon the dead is
sues of the past, but upon the living is
sues of the hour. Applause. Thank
ing yon for the honor of being selected
to preside over this vast assembly, I await
the further pleasure of the meeting."
The list of Vice Presidents and Secreta
ries were read and elected unanimously.
Among the former, Horace Greeley, Sin
clair Tousey, Michael Doherty," Isaac
Sherman, Waldo Hutchins, Moses H.
Grinnell, Hiram Barney, Charles A.
Dana, E. L. Godkin, Parke Godwin, Mar
shall O. Roberts, George W. Palmer,
Richard M. Blatchford, John K. Porter,
George Wilkes, Samuel Sinclair, Rufus
F. Andrews, Minthrone Tompkins, John
A. Dix, E. G. Squire and Alfred Pell.
The following declaration of principles
was read and indorsed with tremendous
cheers: ' "We believe that the political
action of individuals and conventions
should be left free from the influence of
political patronage. That business men
should not, under fear of unjust official
interference with affairs, be compelled
to pay tribute for political purposes. We
believe that public offices are or should
be created for public convenience, and
not as rewards for partisan services, nor
for personal aggrandizement. That acts
of oflicials should lie confined within the
strict letter of the laws creating such
officials. AVe believe that the triumph of
Republican principles is ot paramount
importance to the country, and that the
success ot these principles iu the ap
proaching national election does not de
pend on any one individual. V e believe
thai the prosperity of the country de
mands a thorough radical and immediate
reform in' all the departments of the pub
lic service, civil, military and naval, and
that the one term principle for the Pres
idential office will conduce more to that
end than any other measure." About a
quarter before eight o'clock Schurz and
Trumbull arrived and were received in
the most enthusiastic manner, which,
however, was surpassed by th enthusi
astic applause from all sides when Hor-.
ace Greeley appeared on the platform
and took a seat ou the speakers' stand.
Mr. Trumbull spoke with great enerev
and lire, and not only electrified but also
instructed his audience by his eloquence.
His assaults on the centralizing tenden
cies of the present administration were
hailed with indignant cheers, and he as
tonished his hearers oy showing tlicm
the despotism which threatens tlie safctv
of the republic. He upheld in unquali-
neu language the true Uemocrat ic doc
trine of State rights, and while de
nouncing tlio rebels as traitors he yet said
they were never thieves. He warned his
audience against the dangers of a cen
tralized authority, which lias already es
t iblished iu different States of the Union
tribi i nals for the adj udicat ion of property
and lives of the people subject to its own
control, and said that this power was ii
great clanger of abuse. At the conclu
sion oi Arumouii s speech a letter wa.
read from Senator Fmiton. Carl Schurz
then came forward and was received
with prolonged applause. He said he
came here to raise his voice against par-!
ties, the victory of which subordinates
public weal, personal and party interest
and to protest against slavish submission
to party dictation, ag-iiust the con ii nu
ance and maintenance of a power which
over-rules tlie laws of the land for sel
fish ends, against the growth of personal
government which threatens to convert
the public purse into personal property,
against frauds and deceptions being
practiced upon a confiding people to
make what is wrong appear right, and
patriotic that which is moan and selfish.
He 6aid ho had started in political life
in the Republican party and never de
sired to connect himself with any other.
He was proud of the achievements of
that party, but recognized the necessity
of thorough reform, and without unity
in this purpose it would not be held to
gether. Passing to the subject of mora
reform, he said the easy apd Iqose mor
als engendered by the war could most I
easily be remedied : first, that those in
high places should set an example of
scrupulous purity; second, that the rul
ing power should even more freely criti
cise its own members than those of Hi
opponents; aud third, that tho civil ser
vice should he ao reformed as to make
honesty, capacity, and fidelity to public
interest. Qualifications for theofllec rath
er than patriotism. At the conclusion of
Sohui'z's address, Greeley was Intro-
uueeit una made a brief speech. He
said he would jjo forward with the non
office holding Republicans to tho Cincin
nati convention and tako Its consequen
ces. The meeting tlteu adjourned .
