' The 'writer- who possesses the most copious vocabulary of slang and vituperative epithetsuts will command the highest pay, and it Is rea sonably to be : feared that iu the place where most of nil it is needed, Reform will be most seldom met with. Public opinion could do much to put down this ruffainly practice but after all. it will be Impossible to ever eradicate it until po litical managers and newspaper writers . themselves are brought to sce.not only its foolishness but the evil effects that inevi tably follow. -.-"-' PRECAUTION NECESSARY : I '.Tlic anxiety which existed last fall, when it was known that the cholera was approaching our shores, is again ex cited by the well-known fact that cold weather does not destroy the poison .but merely holds it iu abeyance, and by the .statement in a recent number of the British Medical Journal that in all prob ability the disease which was sporadic lasCycju- will become epidemio during 1 the present season. Late reports from the East, whence the terrible pest inva riably starts, show thatalready its rav ages have commenced and give rise to the strong probability that the localities which escaped its visitation last year will not be equafly 'fortunate this year. A very pertinent question, therefore, at the present time is, " What Is being sed before the Geneva board. 'We 1 have always believed and" have frequently said that England could hot afford to enforce her views iu regard to tho treaty by an appeal to arms and that some' other solution of . the difliculty must bo devised. . -Event have proven this correct. But few foresaw that the dead' lock, would be brought loan end bv one of the most perfect evasions on the part of our government, to pSe found in diplomatic history.,.,- -.. , , .:,... The Treaty of Washington was looked upon by the entire country with favor, as solving a . most difficult international problem, and the responsibility of either its entire failure or of such management under its provisions as to bring dis credit upon tlie country, cannot fall to be brought home to where it may" bo long. .-: " ' ' ( , ; j-. : :. A Colm., Iu accordance with the resolution adopted; some weeks 6ince,.tho Legisla ttire'udjourned on MondaV last.'5 ' Iu ring 'the session there has undoubtedly beeu a , great . deal of time wasted and many disgraceful - exhibitions- given of personal malice and political clap-trap, but after all it may fairly be claimed that it is better to pay for no legislation at all than for positively bad or injuri ous action. , On this ground, the. Legis lature can claim some degree of praise, for niitil Within the two weeks jnst past, there has not been, as much business ac complished as ought to have been ' done In as many days as they have occupied months. . But during the ten days imme diately ' preceeding adjournment, both branches settled down to work with an earnestness that has enabled them to get through with a much larger amount of legislative labor than most of us had any idea would be possible. ' Among other thlng3, by far the most important "was the passage, of,- the, redisricting bill While there are undoubtedly objections to the present law it, has at least the negative merit of being the best that was offered.' Under the new apportionment the State is divided Into twenty districts of which number the Fifth, Seventh, Thirteenth and Fourteenth are Demo cratic by majorities varying from five thousand and oversown to less than one thousand. Among the remainder there are a few, such as the First and Tenth for instauce, when the balance Is so close as to give mere local Issues the power to turn the scale. In another column will be found a table giving the counties com prising each district, their aggregate population, and the vote of both parties in the Gubernatorial election In 1871. A careful examination of it will show the leading points and principal changes in the new apportionment better than any explanation. ' Ltterarfana?

' In a long and somewhat labored edi torial. the Cleveland Leader., lately Vat- tempted to show that Senator Schurz was guilty of manifest absurdity in appear ing as an advocate of Civil servlee reform. and that his present position' was simply a case of political "hypocrisy Starting with the aphorism that any person hold ing "Such f tews shbuld,for consistency's sake at ieast have, an official record so pure 'as to challenge criticism',' the writ er of the article inferred to then seeks to show that - 'itr'. Schurz does not possess such a record,: and Is therefore ilndescrv Ing of confidence in his advocacy of the Reform movement. 4 In support of this statement there are three instances adduced. ; The first ind therefore probably the most important in the opinion of the writer is in. refer ence to Mr.. Schurz's accounts with the Government, and in substance is to the effect that in 1861, while United Rates Minister to Spain Mr. Schurz returned to this country and remained here for six months, during Which time he regu larly drew his salary, amounting in the aggregate to six thousand dollars, and thatsince that time,although "repeatedly and urgently requested" to render his account to the Government he has neg lected or refused to do. so. Tlie. other two are, that in 1369. be recommended Mr. Jussen, a brother-in-law, to the posi tion of collector of Chicago, and that I the same year he recommended by letter a man bv the name of John Doffin for the United States consulate at .Nurem burg. : Even admitting the truth of all the charges it may well be doubted whether there is. any Senator against whom much larger list could not be gathered and it is rather difficult to appreciate the reasoning which claims to fasten fraud and nepotism upon a public man whose whole record presents but three vulner able Vioints. But investigation shows that even the slight grounds, that would exist were the assertions true, are de- uied in the instances brought forward A few days since Mr. Schurz, having heard the report above alluded to, "culled upon the fifth auditor and found that his account, like many others, ' was kept open because the last six months of bis salary had not been receipted for, and email item of contingent expenses had not been certified by he Legation in the usual form, and that instead of being in ('fault to the government a balance was still due him trom the government." As to the : recommendatious given to Mr, Jussen and Mi PofRn, both these gen tlemen have distinctly denfed the trnth of the statements made.. A.T HOME. Counties. , Hamilton, .

On Friday after some miscellaneous busi ness local legislation again occupied the time until the time of adjournment. On Saturday the following Senate bills were passed; Senate bill providing that justi ces of the peace may exercise the funct ions of police judges n citjes apd vjlr lages having no police judge. Senate bill allowing mileage to county com missioners for twelve sessions annually, and necessary expenses while traveling outside of the county on official business and tho business thus transacted must be certified and approved by the court.

Hmall as the Cincinnati movement seemed in its beginning, it has rapidly developed nto tne most important anair or tne kind that ever occurred in American politics. The famous Buffalo Conven tion in 1848, and the Cleveland Conven tion in 1864, were nothing in compari son. Account tor it as we may, cerrain It is that the Cincinnati movement extanded to a magnitude which most sanguine among its original pro moters could not have anticipated. Xo National Convention of any party has ever attracted more attention, or excited a deeper interest. As early as Satur day last, delegations from every part of the country began to come in and Con vention wees openeu wuu uiumsiana ble signs of being one of the most ex citing in the history of the city. From every State came crowds, among which were men ot hign rank ana weu-xnown ability, "until by Tuesday night there was not a State in the "Union but had its eDresentatives there. The long looked for day for the assemblhig-of the Con vention came in with lowering skies. At times during the morning, there was a dashing rain which somewhat inter fered with out-door movements. " The trainsof the night preceding and the early morning had brought many rein forcements, so that the well-filled city of the evening before nau lew places at ine hotels where the freshly arrived could find comfortable rooms, it nas propa- blv seldom occurred ,lir the history of the country that so many newspaper men have been attracted - to a given place. There Js scarcely a prominent paper iu - tne country, oi cuner rartjV,' that has not ; a represen tative here, ana in some cases, two or three persons from same offices. The ball in whicli the Liberal Convention met Is doubtless one ot the best suited for the purpose of such an assemblage of any-that exists in "the United States. It is the mam nan oi tne iiitiusinai r-si' sition, which consists of a succession of arches,' seventv feet in height, forming a building 250 feet in length, and with the aisles 125 feet wide. It is seated to accommodate five thousand persons, but will comfortably hold more than twice that number. The capacious stage is six feet above the main floor, and extends into the hall so as to enable all persons who : are seated to hear the speaker if food order is maintained.- On the stage are one hundred aud twenty-five chairs While below chairs are provided tor seven hundred delegates. ' Immediately below, on a circular platform two ' feet above the main floor, are the tables for the newspaper reporters, over one hun dred in number. .The Associated Press is provided for on the stage, where it will oc near tne onicers oi uie conven tion. Immediately in 'the rear of the platform , . the national colors are handsomely displayed, with lilieral festoons ot evergreens, jinn above mis is the oehestra, which is also tastefully provided for. The entire hall is decora ted ' with national flags, interspersed with coats of arms of all .the States. The floors are covered with sawdust or tan-bark, so as to avoid distbrbanee. The following is the official document providing for the organization of the Liberal Convention: '-The Executive Committee appointed by the Missouri State Convention, by which the Liberal Republican JfatiopaJ Convention was called, having met in consultation with representatives of the delegations from the different States, announces the fol lowing plan of organization, which has been unanimously agreed upon by that Committee, and the representatives con sulted ( The National Committee will be called to order In Exposition Hall, at noon on Wednesday . After electing a temporary organization, it will then be adjourned at once, and the members from tlie several States will proceed to as semble in State Convention to elect dele gates. : Each State shall be entitled to representation upon the basis of four delegates at large, and two lor each mem ber of Congress alloted to it under the new apportionment, and these states are recommended to select delegates from the Congressional Districts, as far as possible, in case any State shall not be represented by a number of per sons equal to that which it shall be en titled to under the foregoiug rule, then those present shall be entitled to cast the full vote of the State. By the time of meeting the body of tlie Hall was filled with delegates, while the k"alleries were rapidly filling with citizeps and specta tors, itlliuug w iiumi i iiieiuupu ii guoujy share of ladies, and at twelve o'clock the great gathering that " is to shape to a considerable extent the future destinies of the country had assembled. , Twenty five hundred people being present. It was called to order by- William Grosven or of St.' ' Louis. He made a speech, which was loudly applauded, closing bv naming Hon, Stanley Matthews of Cin- einnati, tor leiujiuriiry eii.iirucin, coin ing whatever was done in way of busi ness beyond mt re organization, and the Convention adjourned atter lialt an hour session till ten o'clock the next dav Thursday. . At that tune the convention was again called to order, and after the announcement of the various commit tees necessary for eflecting a prominent organization an adjournment was again voted until three o'clock in the after noon. Tlie Convention reassembled at three o'clock, Judge Matthews in the' chair. The large hall was densely crowded with people, in every portion, large numbers of ladies lending interest to the scene by their presence in the galle ries' The report of the Committee on Permanent Organization was presented by Judge Spalding . of Ohio, the name of (senator- Sehnrs as permanent presi dent being received 'with a storm of cheers ami applause. The report was unanimously adopted. Senator Schurz was conducted to the platform. Ids ap pearance there being greeted with ap plause, and tumultuous and long con tinued cheering, numerous delegates rising from their seats and waving their hats. His reception was in the highest degree complimentary, being little less than ovation. He was pvesonted to tlie convention by Judge Matthews, and de livering a short sprecli which was fre quently interrupted by applause. An adjournment until 7 iu tlie evening re sulted principally iu still another until 11 o'clock this (Friday) morning, a re port of which has not yet reached us. From the mass of reports that come pvcrtlje wires it is almost impossible to popdeijse -ipyth,lngikc a jinpelnct and intelligablc account of tlje proceedings of the vast mass of delegates and outside attendants now at work in Cincinnati.
