". ' ., : ., Complaints are reported that flowers, ', and more especially that vases and other receptacles of ; floral tributes, cannot be ; left in our cemetery with any thins more than a chance that tliey will remain un disturbed. Some means ought certainly to be taken to prevent such outrages. In A one instance, at least, we know the re ports to be true, ami presume that they may be so in others. 'The vandaL who is so far regardless of all decency as to ' carry the cowardly erlme of i sneak- tliieving within the sacred resting place of the dead, and despoil the offerings placed oyer the graves of departed friends, deserves the severest penalty that can be . inflicted under the law. . Somr offences are -so- despicable in their cowardly meanness as to show" that by comparison, there are degrees of respectability even iu crimes. Sel ling liquor is low enough even when conducted within tlie hounds of law, but . when avarice leads a dealer to -vend the poison to boys of less than a dozen years of age, the human is so far , lost hi the , brute as to deprive the ruffian of even the commonest consideration.,. But, incred ible as it seeuis, there are men heaven save the mark wlm do tbis eveu here in our highly moral village. Those whose business calls them upon the streets at a late hour of the night are met with rceliug proofs of the truth of this asser tion. Only this week was seen the piti able spectacle of a boy,less than ten years old, lying in the Public Park In broad daylight dead . drunk ! If we had only been able to loarn the name of the beast that sold the liquor we should have been pleased to have given him such publicity as would have enabled the public to have shown their appreciation of the act al though the same apathy which per mitted the boy to lie there until he became sober might, perhaps, have prevented the meting out of fit punishment. M S1IAV AJIlSEJIESTIt. ; In cities and towns the orthodox. Sab- - bath dullness too frequently is a mate-. rial aid to tho success of the temptations Of the 'Devil. Legitimate ' relaxation being practically ! forbidden, in that it is left entirely unprovided for, ; the broad and pleasant paths of vice ud many - walking therein who might easily be re claimed Were proper attention paid to ' the subject of necessary recreation. . ' The . operative, the clerk, the business man - to whom the Sabbath must needs be the 'only day of rest in -all the seven are left to seek the amusement, which na ture' and inclination alike demand, amid the, snares and . pitfalls so attractively spread that their harvest is Legion. . Moral aphorisms are - abstractly good, ' but facts are terribly stubborn and, as a A result, practical Christianity must deal ,. with what is, and not confine their works : within the visionary .bounds of what ought to be, if they expect or hope to win the battle for the - salvation of their fellow-men.' ... .In regard to this, the American peo : pie are undoubtedly learning j most use ful lesson. Many of the peculiar ideas descended from oui1 Puritan ancestors are being modified,, "or are fading al together, before the broad beams of Ad vancement and Progress, and the prob lem of Sunday amusements has already received at least a partial solution. ; Rec ognizing tlie fact that the Sabbath is the only day in which a large proportion of . the dwellers in cities can leave behind them the cares and' anxieties of every day labor realizing the truth that many temptations which iuevitably. result in i vicious ruin are . consequently endowed . with double power on that day and be- lieving that the substitution of inno cent pleasures and attractive places of resort whose influences may bo for good instead of evil, various churches, and as- , a relations have set to work to battle vice - -with its own weapons. ' In New York the Academy of Design and a number of the public libraries have, for some time past, opened their doors on Sundays, and the result has been not only a constantly increased at tendanca. but a marked improvement in the manners and interest of those who avail themselves of the privilege. And lately the Y. M. C A. has followed tlieir example, keeping, of course, within the limitations imposed by the very nature of such an institution. Its parlors, re ception room and library are thrown open from two.o'clock to half past seven, and the service of song in association Hall is supplemented by a cheerful cup of tea in the parlors. ,'. Can it be doubted but that this substitution of retlniug in fluences in place of those tht tend to debauchery, or familiarity with crime aud vice this opening of rpiiet, cheerful places of innocent recreation to receive the weary worker who is seeking for rest for mind and hotly with the hope that they may destroy the glittering power of the haunts of sin will be fol lowed by the liest of results? And the subject is one of interest to us even here. In this place there is quite a numerous class of young men whose Sundays a-e passed in idleness and in ef forts to find a place where they may ob tain the recreation w hich they ei a ve, and which becomes vicious through ab sence of restraining influences. There is a Y. M. C. A. iu this phiee, owning a a good library and pleasant rooms. Mteht not much good I done if these were opened on Sunday and even the great innovation of refreshments per mitted? The experiment Jitis been suc cessfully tried elsewhere, and certainly it could not but be commended by all, if through its means even a single young man were induced to forego the Snnday rides, with their accompany! ur drink ing and carousing, that are all too com mon now. Wayside iuns migbtbe shorn of portion of their profit, but publio morality and decency would be largely the gainers. . ; M - mmm - m mi'i.'PHTlwi mm MTW i' It is doubtful whether the Convention j of Uberal Kepuhlicjitis could have made anr iiomlMttons niownnlookWl r by Wjf the country; at large than were those off, !

J , , , . . should be so "rtuntcd as to do away with I the" necessity, for (lie repetition of the old excuse of 'being imposed upon by di bonest nien.V' But innead of thi they have presented a man who iias been for years mixed iip w-iili the politicians of Xevy- York than which nothing w orse cau. be said of them whose supporters at Cincinnati were, in part at least, poli ticians of the trashiest kind and whose j nomination was undoubtedly efl'ecled by a political tnck,quite as barefaced as any that has occurred for years, and- perpe trated by men whose chief reputation consists of being professioual wirepul lers.. Another source of weakness is the doubt which exists as to the acceptance of the ticket by the Democracy. , To ex pect a true Democrat to endorse and sup port Horace Greeley is to expect a great deal, and but little Importance must be attached to the adhesion which some of the Democratic papers have already given to the ticket, so long as there is no candidate of their own in the field. ' Al though the party as such has given no sigu as to it course, therein lie scarcely a-dottbt but that hey will make a nomi nation, for the temptation to take ad vantage of the situation I almost too strong to be resisted. But despite these considerations, it must not be supposed that the nomina tions are, without strength and will not command a strong support. Against Mr. Greeley, himself, there is bur little that can be said. He is one of the most widely known men in the country, and that Ids personal honesty is' above sus picion, no one doubts, whose, doubt is worth consideration. He is thoroughly familiar with the principles of our gov ernment and with the constitution of American society. .While lie may not be an ideal statesman, yet there are tew who can look back upon their political career with more honest pride, lie is a man of intellect and education and, despite some mistakes, has . continually grown in the resjiect and confidence of the American people, during the past twenty years. Throughout ' the South ern States he will command an almost undivided support and the very general belief that in case of election he will do much to purify the Presidential office of the corruption and fraud that have so long clustered around it cannot fall to attract many adherents in otlier sections. The platform, which we give ill full in another column, is excellent both in matter and manner, and is one to which every true Reformer, whether Republi can or Democrat can readily give sup port.' In it the question of tariff is rele gated for decision in the congressional districts, where undoubtedly it properly belongs, for, of necessity, it must ever be a sectional rather than a party problem. Iu connection with the present political outlook one other question naturally presents itself for1 consideration.'' In case a uomiuatiou is made by the Demo-' eratic party it cannot he denied that self- preservation would compel the Republi cans to reunite upon some candidate who would be acceptable to both branches of the partyj and it is comparatively safe to assume that this candidate cannot be General Grant. . Whether it would be Mr. Greeley would also - be of almost equal doubt. This necessity is already beginning to be recognized and eveu ad ministration papers admit that it would not now be the difficult task to abandon Mr. Grant that it would have been two weeks since. To be sure the delegates have already been chosen for the Phila delplua Convention, and are understood to be committed for Grant, but it is quite certain that if they were to be elected to morrow they would not be bound by any pledges whatever. Their paramount duty is undoubtedly to the Republican party rather than to General Grant, and their support of any candidate to be looked for only so far as it may be consid ered necessary for the preservation or existence of the party. In speaking of this the New York Evening Port, in a re cent editorial says : - ' ' ' : ' ' ' ' It is evident that the Republican party is drifting, into dangerous waters, and needs steadier pilots than thote who have seized tho helm since the last national election. If the ritiirs which seek to con trol it will not tolerate criticism, they must at least regard facts. If no candi date had been forced upon the party as a test of alleiiance, and no obnoxious rings had usxirne'd Us management, the llepuhlteant would have been united, with the assurance j of an ovenehelminn victum next November. - a What the Kepuhlieaa. party should do is to demand the abandonment of idol and rinns. and nu onen contest for can didates who are nut embarrassed by doubtful associations. It they succeed in this effort. and restore the liberal and enlightened principles which directed them four years ao to their platform, they can govern the , country for an indefinite period. , ,( . As to t he reception of the ticket by the press, it has been so varied as idmost to defy any criticism. Endorsed by some, it has been made the text for congratu lations by others, and in not a few has led to exhibitions of half-contemptuous ridicule. Taken altogether it has per haps been received with more favor than disfavor, although a good many of tlie " Independent papers" are still M on the ' fence." " ... ; ; ; . ' So far as regards fair and impartial criticism, we have to say , as we have of; ten said before, that it is, not only what apublic man must expect, .but what he ought to receive. With regard, how ever, to the attempts to laugh Horace Greeley out of the campaign, we are not so certain that it will be attended with the success that some would seem to ex pect. During his whole life Mr; Gree ley has been ' pretty thoroughly-. 'sub jected, to the test of ridicule and still he has not been extinguished. In fact we j are not sure but that this very ridiculo has been a help rather than a hindrance. Whether a person may feel inclined to vote for him or not, there is certainly more weight in argument and sober, sensible reasoning than in caricatures or epithets of " idiot" and lunatic,"'' and every candid man must condera u the pub lication of articles such as for instance appeared iu a late number of Harper's Weekly and which, if not libellous, is cartaiuly scandalous. tceiniar ot ttisapijointmeut. anions uic -i"'""""; " .

Cin cinnati, proclaim the following princi ple a.i essential to just government: -First We recognize the equality of alt men before the law, and hold that it i the duty of Government- in its deal ings with tlie people to mete out eqnal and esact justice to all. of whatever na tivity, race, color or persuasion religious or political. Seconil we plefljreonrseives to main tain the Union of the States, Emancipa tion and Franehisement, and to oppose any reopening of the question settled by the l;lth, I4tn ana Jatn amendments 01 the Constitution. - ' Third We demand the immediate and absolute removal oT all disabilities im posed on account of the rebellion which was finally-subdued seven years ago. believing that' universal amnesty will result in complete pacification in all sections of the country. Fourth Local self-soverniuent with impartial suffrage will guard the rights 1 of all citizens more securely than any t centralized power. The public welfare I requires the supremacy of the civil over I the military authority and freedom of j person under the protection of the ha- i beas corpus. We demaud for the in-j dividual the largest liberty consistent with public order; for the State, self-1 government, and for the nation areturn to the method of peace and the consti tutional limitations of power, ' ' Fifth The civil service of the govern ment has become a mere instrument, of parttzan tyranny and personal ambition, and an object of selfish greed. - It is a scandal and reproach upon free institu tions, and breeds a demoralization dan gerous to the perpetuity of republican government. 1 Sixth We therefore regard a "thor ough reform of the civil service a.' one of the most pressing necessities of the hour: that honesty, capacity and fidel ity constitut the' only valid claims to public employment; that the officers of the government cease to lie a matter of arbitrary favoritism and patronage; and that public station lK-conie again a post of honor.1 To this end it is imperative ly required that no President shall be a candidate for re-election ' ' Seventli We demand u system of gen eral taxation which, shall not unnecessa rily interfere with the industry of the oeonle. and 1 which -shall provide tlie means necessary to pay the expenses of the government, economically adminis tered, the pensions, the interest on the public debt and a moderately annual re duction ot the principal tncreoi, nuo, roerwroy.tno ilinr tbere nre iiv our midst honest but Irreconcilable ''differences off opinion with regard to the respective systems of protection and free trade, we remit the discussion of the subject to the people in their congressional districts, and the decision of -eougress thereon, wholly free of executive interference or dictation.

Eleveutli We are opposed to all fur ther grants of lauds to railroads or other corporations ; the public domain should be held sacred to actual settlers, - Twelfth We hold tbatit is the duty of the Government, in its intercourse with foreign nations, to cultivate the friends of peace by treating with all on fair and equal terms, regarding It alike dishon orable either to demand what Is pot right or to submit to what is wrong. Thirteenth For the promotion and success of these vital principles and the support of the candidates nominated by this Convention, we invite and cordially welcome the co-operation of all patriotic citizens, without regard to previous po litical affiliation.

The choice of candidates for President and Vice President was then taken up and a res olution adopted to proceed with the for mal nominations, the roll of States being called at once.

Thk Senate liexume for the week erul iny May 7th. On Wednesday after some miscellaneous business of no especial importance, the Senate took up the Na val Appropriation bill. Mr. Cragin, on behalf of the Committee on Naval Af fairs, moved an amendment appropria ting $40,000 to make experiments iu con verting smooth bore guns in the navy' into rifle guns. Upon this amendment 'a long discussion arose, iu the course of which Messrs. Trumbull and Stevenson charged , the Navy Department with extravagance and maladministration anu Messrs, Cragin, Freliiighuysen and Conkling defended the Department mid the Secretary of the Navy. The amend ment was finally rejected and the bill having passed, the Senate adjourned at eight o'clock. . All daj- Thursday was taken up in considering Ihe postal ap propriation bill and on Friday morning as soon as unfinished . business w as called up, its discussion was resumed. The leading question was on the amend ment increasing the Pacific Mail subsidy to one million dollars. The amendment was discussed at length, and amended so as to authorize the Postmaster General. iA i- . ..... i.-.. carrying an additional monthly mail for II ITUllll lt:i . till UIC lOMtJSli iJltlUn ...I ten years. from the first of Octolter, 1S72, at a compensation not to exceed the rate, per voyage now paid under existing' con tracts..:; ..'it .'was then adopted, and the Senate adjourned, On Saturday on mo tion of Mr. Sumner, tli e bill prohibiting distinction on account of race, color or previous condition of servitude, in the public schools of Georgetown aud Wash ington, was ; taken up.

On AVednesday the Senate amendment to the House bill abolishing duties on tea and coffee, mak ing the bill take effect on the first of July next, were incurred i n by a large major ity on a division tho yeas and nays be ing refused. The bill now goes to the President tor approval. The morning hour then commenoed, and bills were re ported from the Committee on Indian af fairs and acted on by the House. At the close of the morning hour the House went into Committee of the Whole on the tariff bill.

NEW TOP.K. A fire at Niblo's Theatre gained such headway before it was discovered that a general alarm was sounded, bringing out the entire fire department. A cor don of policemen wSi plaeed around the block bounded by Broadway, Crosby, Prince and Spring streets. The hook and ladder companies' commenced tear ing down the interior of the block but were soon driven out by the intense heat. The theatre was entirely destroyed. The rear of the Metropolitan Hotel caught fire, causing a stampede of guests and employees. The rear of llelmbold's store also caught fire, and was considerably damaged. While the fire was in pro gress au explosion of gas occurred in the Theatre, ami severely injured Cap tain Clinehy of the Fourteenth precinct police, and "nearly suffocated four lire men, who were rescued with difficulty. The Superintendent of the Metropolitan Hotel states that tlie hotel itself sus tained little or no damage. In the Methodist General Conference, Bishop Simpson presiding, a resolution was offered calling for a special Commit tee of one minister and one layman from each book district to take especial cogni zance of the alleged fraudsand mismaii-, agement in the New York Book Con cern. After a warm debate, the resolu tion was tabled. Amotion to reconsider tabling the vole was offered by Dr. Lan- ihan, who made a speech in which he i said if any one was specially interested iiiii.il, .. i.v iiKi'ii. i. ,-ijiiu ... i, nu." iv in speed v exam iuatiou.it. was him. or tour years he had been. held, up to the ; gaze, of his fellow churchmen as a sain- j pie of a scandalous agitator.

He now asked that a committee be or- : dered, and the subject settled filially and j forever. He was prepared with a full 1 report, in which his defense and charges j should stand in full. J", Jhiekley also ' advocated a committee in a forcible siteecli, amid repeated interruptions. Mr. Queen of the New York Conference moyed the indefinite postponemert of the whole subject, which was carried 199. to 150. If a Judge can be obtained to preside at the Coiirp of Oyer aud Terminer, it is the intention of the District Attorney to' bring the case of Stokes to final issue during the present term. In the mean time the prisoner is extremely dejected over ihe desertion of his counsel, Messrs. Graham and Garry, and Is completely at sea with regard to the selection of their successors. It is estimated that ex-District Attorney Pierrepont will be associ ated with McKeon, Stoke' s remaining counsel. Tlie 1erald special says the report of the safety of Dr.; Livingstone was brought to Zanzibar by negroes from the interior. Livingstone according to this statement was at Ujiji in January last. The American, Stanley, was with him. Spain. A proclamation signed by Don Carlos has been circulated. In it the Pretender exclaims : "Thank God, I am once more permitted to kiss the sacred soil of my country and to be among Spaniards." He appeals to the people to rise in arms, and declares that he will deliver Spain or die in the attempt. Official reports say that no band of rebels remain in the province of Saragossa. Marshal Ser rano has commenced active operations in Navarre, setting out with a strong column of troops from Tafalla, twenty two miles from Pampeluna. : It is said that the King insists on taking actual command of the army.

The Nashville (Tennessee) Union and American believes that "the Democracy will doubtless elect the Cincinnati -ticket.-"' aud publishes sketches of Horace Greeley and Gratz Brown, and' edito rially expresses the opinion that the ticket would have been stronger with Brown for President, but-it speaks kindly of Greeley. It says the ticket ean and will sweep the Northwest if seconded bv the national Democracy. - It adds, the election of the ticket depends solely upon the action of the Democracy. Whatever they shall conclude is best to be done for the' higher interest of the country will be done cheerfully. They will preserve their organization intact and as a body With the lights before us, we do not doubt that, when in national convention assembled, they will take such action as will lead to the defeat of Grant and the election of the ticket presented at Cin cinnati. As between Grant and Wilson, of Massachusetrs.nndGreeley and Brown, there can be for the Democracy but one choice. The Louisville (Kentucky) Ledger says : "The advice we have to give to Demo crats is to come to no hasty conclusions. Wait till our party shall, through its rep resentative men. meet in council and de termine as to the proper course to pur sue. If there is no other alternative, of course every Democrat in the conntry will prefer Greeley to Grant." The-Columbus '(Ohio) Statesmftn be lieves that -"the ticket will be endorsed the Democracy," and publishes the fol lowing: "This is a ticket that can be elected, and the men upon it in theirex eeurive capacity will respond to the highest aspirations of the true friends of popular government. It. does no par ticular violence to true Democratic leel- ! iugs; and will no doubt receive the in dorsement ot tlie Oeinoeratic National Convention." The Baltimore fio-tUe believes, on the contrary, that "Greeley ean never re- i . , -. ... -. ., ve tne supjiort oi tne woc';"';! id i"8"V f of Mr. Greeley places an impassable bar rier between the Liberal Republicans and the conservative masses of the coun try.' He can never receive the support of the Democratic party, or any respect able number of it members, Tlie men, or clique, in our ranks who would fool ishly endeavor to bring about such a consummation would be crushed to atoms. His record as a bold, vindictive and uncompromising Radical is loo fresh in the minds of tlie people to make him. in any sense, a popular candidate. The Brooklyn Kmjle holds that "the Democrats can support Greeley without discredit" and has the following reasons vchr : "The Democrats, tve believe, ca support bun without ctiscre.iit, tor ny !(eeil looking somewhat Eopef nil y to Ciii do.ng so they can bring to an end the dmiiUi b(t thcre js ,,0 u -ord of y,,",, veifn of venalitr and rorrnntion at ... ...,.. .i.r i. v 1'ivmi c Wnshingtou, restore once more to the States and to the people the powers of pelf-government,bring back the country to i lie ways and habits of peace, and render it possible for us iu the near fu ture to take up tlie consideration of these questions ot public concern, wnicli must rest-in obeyanee untiljthe cha.sni niadeby the civil war is tilled up; until the di visions it created are effaced ; until citiz enship of the republic gnnnantees tlie same rights, the same privileges, the safegariis, under flie fundamental law, hi South Corolina as in lassachusetts. The Philadelphia Age holds a little aloof from the commonly expressed opinion, saying that 'm Democratic can didate will be plaeed in the field," and supporting its beief as follows; "The significance of the nomination of Mr. Greeley is that eveu in the, ranks of Radicalism there is a strong desire for the restoration of free civil government, and a true and cordial union of tlie States When the minds of men are thus turning to Democratic principles, it imposes on the Democracy'the duty of consistent ad herenee to them. We have not cherished any doubt that the Demo cratic Convention would, in due time, place a Democratic- candidate in the field. Let him be one to meet the re quirements of the time, as plainly indi cated in the current of political events, and these will result, as they are eviden tly tending, to the ro-establishment of the principles of the Constitution, and in plating tlie administration of them in competent bands. iiieiiiriiorron. i, innes n.ei is "imiihint In ii-ml riivthn Ili.iiiivip4Mii I v-i.. vention'' s.'ivs : "We do not assume lo advNe the Democratic Convention, It j will probably meet in !t, Louis, and ' very likely as late as the 4th of July ' though the 23d of June would be a much t better time.

The Cincinnati Convention did not disturb the Rochester Union; it asserts that '-tlie Democratic party' will nomin ate and support its ow n candidates," as follows; "Of course tlie - Democratic j party will pursue the even, tenor of its way just as if the.

We quote tli fol lowing : Horace Greelev is presented to the American; people as a candidate for President who, if elected, will exe cute a needed reform and put an end to existing abuses. He enters tlie field not as the candidate of politicians, but as their persistent foe. His election will be a new era in the national riolii ies. To hissupport will rally every man of what ever party wuo really wants reform." The San Francisco Post unqualifiedly endorses the nomination and says that it is an impressive, popular 'protest against proscription, against eorrup- uou, i.ftiiiosi cuuruioiis expenses oi mil- nur esiaoiisiuuem m time-or peace; against party tyranny, and In favor of government for the people by the peo- -win O GliAXT REPCBIJCAV FDUOXS.

' i rom tne l niiadeipma Press we dip the following: "We do not conceal mil- gratification that tho first and most de serving inemner ot our profession has been placed in nomination for President and that he who lias helped to make so many great nu n is at last chosen as a candidate for the office that, ought al ways to go to the most worthy citizen ( the Republic. And yet Mr. Greeley can never in" our judgment, lie President.1. The Providence Journal has this para graph in one of itsleaders: "But of all the men whose names were prominently brought liefore the convention, Horace Greeley is regarded as the one least- hi-aIc ! to make a troublesome campaign for the menus ui r resiuciu urant.
