REPORTED SPECIALLY FOR THE HERALD BF WESTERN DNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY. UNITED STATES. New York, May 21.—The following ia the reply to the officiul notice to Horace Greeley of his nomination by the Liberal Republican Convention at Cincinnati : New York, May 20, 1872. Gentlemen :—I have chosen not to acknowl edge your letter of the 8d inst. until I could lcam how the work of your convention was received in all parts of our great countrv, and judge whether that work was approved and ratified by the mass of our fellow-citizens. Their response has from day to day reached me through telegrams, letters, and comments of journalists, independent of official patron age ami indifferent to the smiles or frowns of power. The number and character of these unconstrained, unpurchased, unsolicited ut terances, satisfy me that the movement which found expression at Cincinnati, has received the stamp of public approval and been hailed bv a majority of our countrymen as the har binger of a better day for the Republic. I do not misinterpret this approval as especially yself, sociating mine. X receive and welcome it as a spontaneous and deserved tribute to that admirable platform of principles wherein your convention so tersely, so lucidly, so forcibly set forth the convictions which im pelled and the purposes which guided its course ; a platform, which, casting behind it the wreck and rubbish of work out of con tentions and by-gone feuds, embodies in fit and few words the needs and aspirations of to-day. Though thousands stand ready to condemn your every act, hardly a syllable of criticism or cavil lias been aimed at your platform, of which the substance may be en tirely epitomized, as follows 1st. All political rights and franchises which have been acquired through our late bloody convulsion, must and shall be guaran teed, maintained, enjoyed, and respected for evermore. 2d. All political rights and franchises which liave been lost through that convulsion, should and must be promptly restored and re-established, so that there shall be hence forth no prescribed class, and no disfran chised caste within the limits of our Union, whose long estranged people shall reunite and fraternize upon the broad basis of universal amnesty, with impartial suffrage. 3d. That subject to our solemn Constitu tional obligation to maintain the equal rights of all citizens, our policy should aim at local self-government and not at centralization; that the civil authority should be supreme over the military; that the writ of nahem corpus should be jealously upheld, as a safe guard to personal freedom ; that the individ ual citizen should enjoy the largest liberty consistent with public order ; and that there shall be no Federal subversion of the internal policy of the several States and municipali ties, but that each shall be left free to enforce the rights and promote the well-being of its inhabitants by such means as the judgment of its own people shall prescribe. 4th. There shall be real and not merely simulated reform in the civil service of the Republic, to which end it is indispensable that the chief dispenser of its official patron age shall be shielded from the main tempta tion to use his power selfishly, by a rule in exorable, forbidding and precludu election. 5th. That in raising revenue, whether by tariff or otherwise, shall be recognized and treated as the people's Immediate business, to be shaped and directed by them through their Representatives ia Congress, whose action therein the President must neither overrule by his veto, attempt to dictate, nor presume to punish, by bestowing office only on those who agree with him, or withdrawing it from those who do not. 6th. That the public lands must sacredly be reserved for occupation and acquisition by cultivators, and not recklessly squandered on mg his re the the of Y. W. of or E rejectors of railroads, for which our people avH no present meed, the premature con. struction of which is annually plunging us into the deeper and deeper abyss of foreign indebtedness. 7th. By the achievement of these grand purposes, universal benefits are expected and sought at the hands of all who approve them, irrespective of past affiliations. 8th. That the public faith must at all hnz ards be maintained, and the national credit preserved. 9th. That the patriotic devotedness and inestimable services of our fellow-citizens, who as soldiers or sailors, upheld the flag and maintained the unity of the Republic, shall ever be gratefully remembered and honorably requited. These propositions, so ably and forcibly S resented in the platform of your convention, ave already fixed the attention and com manded the assent of a large majority of our countrymen, who joyfully adopt them, as I do, as the basis of a true and benlficent na tional reconstruction—of a new departure from the jealous strifes and hates which have no longer an adequate motive, or even a plausible pretext, dissolve into an atmosphere of peace, fraternity, and mutual good will. In vain do the drill-sergeants of the decaying organizations flourish menacingly t heir trunch eons, and angrily insist that the files shall be closed and straightened. In vain do the whip per-in of the parties once vital, protest against straggling and bolting ; and denounce men, now their inferiors in position, as traitors and renegades, and threaten them with infamy and ruin. I am confident the American r pie have made your cause their own, ana arc fully resolved that their brave hearts and strong arms shall bear it on in triumph. In this faith, and with the distinct understanding that if elected I shall be President, not of a party, but of the whole people. I accept your nomination in confidence, and trust that the masses of our countrymen, north and south, are eager to clasp hands across the bloody chasm which has too long divided them, forgetting that they have been enemies in the joyful consciousness that they are, and must henceforth remain, brethern. Your*, Gratefully, HORACE GREELEY. To Hon. Cal l Schurz, President, Hon. Goo. W. Julian, Vice-President. Wm. E. McLean, Jno. G. Davidson, J. H.

The medical revolution which commenced years ago with the gradual disuse of blood-letting, salivation, drastic purgatives, and powerful opiates, goes bravely and gloriously on. Every dsy the sick grow wiser. They are no longer willing to open their mouths, shut their eyes, and take whatever the doctors are pleased to prescribe without injury. They want to know the nature of the medicines they are required to swallow, and demand to have the misterious Latin lingo of the profession translated into plain English. The Invalid world understand at last that vigor is the great antagonist of disease. The feeble decline to be utterly prostrated by depleting pills and potions, an taming from snch meadtesments with loathing, judi ciously place their trust In a remedy which combines with the properties of an alterative those of a pure and wholesome toute and Restorative. It is now about twelve yearn since this grand desideratum was intro duced under the name of PLANTATION BITTERS, and from that time to the present its progress has been without a parallel lu the history t of proprietary medicines. With the spirit of the sugar cane—the most nutricions of all stimulants—for its basis, and medicated solely with the juices and extracts of rare vegetable specifics, such as Callsaya Bark, the best known Tonic that the world produces, and which makes it by all odds the most unobjectionable invigor ant. corrective and general alterative that has eve been placed by science within the reach of the sick, the suffering and the despondent. Hence It has overleaped all competition, and Plantation Bitters is to-day the most popular Tonic on either side of the Atlantic. Mein Mastai Liniment, FOB MAN AND BEAST.

Fellow COifiou;— I learn from personal and political friends at home, that my enemies are industriously circulating a report throughout the Territory—that I am coming back to run as an Independent candidate for Congress." I brand this statement by whomsoever uttered, a MONSTROUS FALSEHOOD, « so tar as It relates to any " Independent " candidacy on my part I have never for one moment thought of pursuing any such course. That I will return home at as earlv a day as uosslble, is certain. And that I shall be a candidate for the nomination for Delegate to the 43d Congress, is equally certain— subject, however, TO THE DECISION OF THE DEMOCRATIC TERRITORIAL CONVENTION. In thus announcing myself a candidate, I appeal directly to the democratic voters of the Territory. I appeal, fellow Democrats, to yon to attend the Primarie» In your several precincts, and to see to it, particularly, that the delegates to your County and Territorial Convention* are composed of men who can be neither bnllled nor purchased Into a betrayrj of the important trusts confided to them—delegates that will faithfully cany out the wishes of the constituencies they represent Every Democrat In the Territory Is perfectly familiar with the means resorted to—at the last Convention—to accomplish my defeat, and thwart tho expressed desires of a large majority of the Democracy of Montana. And I merely ask at your hands, that the " wrong " then done be "righted" now. To the people, and the people only, do I make this appeal for a reversal of the action of last year's Con vention.
