REPORTED SPECIALLY FOR THE HERALD BF
WESTERN DNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

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

all competition, and Plantation Bitters is to-day the
most popular Tonic on either side of the Atlantic.
