The Grant- vassal organs ere rfull of extracts from the N. Y. Tribune of years ago abusive oi the Democracy. : These extracts seem to be "about their only stock Hn trade, and the hope is, of Mcoarse, that these will sicken Democrats with. Horace Greeley ;and make them fall in love with Ulysses S.Grant of Long Branch. 'These cullings, it genuine, which nve presume the mostol them are, 'to be folly understood should be presented with all the circumstan ces in order to be fully and fairly understood and appreciated. No doubt Horace Greeley, chrough the Tribune, said some harsh things against ns and we did our best to pay him back in coin. We therefore are perfectly satis fied tq cry quits on that score and lharbor no malice. Brother Democrat are you do ing your duty, your wholo duty? Have you talked with your Re publican neighbor and shown him t be error of his ways? If not, re member hat the time is short, and tbe opportunity for doing good at this election. will soon be past. Tell your neighbor that un equal taxation is wrong, that the bonded system is wrong that ev ery man should pay tax in propor tion to the value of his property that Grant who represents the Republican party, is a bond-hol der; a friend of monopoly, an en emy of the highest interests of la bor and that, therefore duty to themselves and the country at large as well as their own self in terest should compel them to vote against him. Greeley means e qual taxation to all, and universal amnesty. Bro. Democrats we a- gaiii urge you to do your whole duty. Your exertions may save tbe State. Freemeu to the rescued The Grant organs are in great trouble over the present political situation. Ihey are bothered by two fears, one is that the old De mocratic party may die, and the other that Grant may be defeat ed. We can only say, that while his country remains a Republic, the first eau never bey the second is not ouly. possible, and proba ble but a fixed fact. ' If, : as the Grant organs declare, Greeley is going to be so easily defeated, : why in the deuce are they so badly frightened? That's what we would like to know. The Grant leaders are muchly troubled at the idea that the De mocratic party dies "by going in to the Greeley, business." The villains have been telling their followers for years that the De mocratic party was dead. Liars should .have good memories. Hon. Daniel; W. Vorhees was re-omicated for Congress by the Democratic Con ven iou at Terre Haute. He made an able speech in which be declared his intention to- labor for the election of Grea ley over tbe present incumbent of the White House. He gave satisfactory and able reasons for bis course.. j Grants Economy. It is usserted that timing the firt year of Grant's administra tion, some eighty seven millions of dollars of the public debt lias "been paid. This is not true; but for the sake of argument, let us, for the present, admit the can cellation of this amount of debt. The question the people are in lercsred in the question thej' want ansuered is this how much money was paid into the Trensu y during the first year of Grunt's administration? It is veryeasy for a man to pay his debts when his income far exceeds his neces sary expenses. We learn, then, -from official documents, that dur ing the "one year ot Grant' -from March, 18G9, to March, 1870 the income of the Govern ment was nearly four hundred MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, as follows: From customs, $170,056,743 85 " Revenue, 175,457,141 04 " other sources, 39,535.213 93 Grand total, $304,959,038,8.2 Of this amount, according to tlie Radical organs atid the itib lished account of the Secretary of the Treasury, only $87,134, 782 3i was applied to the pay ment o the national debt, show ing that the enormous sum of THREE HUNDRED AND SEV EN MILLION, EIGHT HUN DRED AND TWENT-FOOR THOUSAND, THREE HUN DRED AND SIXTEEN DOL LARS AND TaJIRTY-FOUR CTS., have been squandered by the administration of 1 resident Grant in one year, in a time of peace, and uud-ef pledges of economy and retrenchment-! Thus, to run the Government ' foir one year. rnder the blunderer Grant, costs the people $307,824,316 34 !! , The grand indebtedness on the 1st of March, 1869, when the present administration came into power, and on the 1st of March, 1870,. after a year of reduction?, both statements including the bonds issued to the Pacific rail road companies, as follows: Total debt, less assets in Trea- . sury, March 1, 1870,$2,O14,302,T)16 63 Total uebt, less assets m Trea sury, March 1, 1860, $2,569,190,433 42 Increase sinceMarch 1,'69, $52,172,183,24 Now, what we have stated are J1 acts facts that will not, cannot be controverted. It is evident, then, that I'one year of Grant has not been a profitable year to the country. Again, the Radicals, in their attempt to eulogise the poor non entity Grant, always refer to the administration of Johnson, as having been extravagant, but they omit to state that Mr. John son was not permitted to dismiss notoriously incompetent and cor rupt officials, who were retained in office, in spite of his remon strance, by the tenure-of-ofiice law. He was not permitted, as Grant is, to sell ships, arms and muuitious of war at his pleasure, and to retrench expenditures by the wholesale dismissal of super fluous government employees. The income of the government was nearly $27,000,000 a. ve.tr less Under President Johnson thau it is under President Grant. Bear that in mid4 Oh, ye people, look at these things. Is it possible for you longer to be deceived? Do you not see that the corrupt imbe ciles in power are squandering your means, and using them for party purposes? We'have node- sire to misrepresent no de ire to over color our statements. We are dealing in facts, and we appeal to men of sense, of all parties, to in vestia;ate for them selves, and they will find, as we have found, that the "first year of. Grant and all others with the immense revenues of the country flowing Lito the Trea sury, and the burthensome taxes on the people have been years of profligacy and blundering. Geseral Grant is reported to be mourning over the fact that Congress did not extend the Ku Klux act aiufgivo them the pow er to suspend the habeas corpus in the South, so that he couid set tie the North Carolina election by arresting, under the (charge o' being member of the Ku Klux organ'zation, all who oppnpd the Administration State ticket With that law he could have made its success a sure thing. Hon. D.W. Vooruees and Hon. P. Van Trump will now suppor! the nominations of Greeley aud Brown. The movement for Greeley against Grant is the protest and rtb. llion of the educated and cul tivated classes of the country against longer bein ruled by a coarse, ignorant and brutal sol dier. They demand that we shall have in the Presidential chair a scholac.and a gentleman-a man of thought and ideas, which he can express in good English, ei ther by the pen or upon the hus tings. It is really scandalous that the brains of this country sviould so long have submitted to the do mination of such raediocrisy as is manifest -in Grant. Great Britain has the Bcholariy Gladstone at the head of her affairs: France has the veteran historian and lit erary Thiers, and Germany has the able and accomplished Bis mark. We in the United States have Grant, who in a Presidential message makes a mistake as to the geographical identity of Sau Domingo; who don't know .that Brooklyn is on Long Island, and who boasted to Frank Blair that he never read a book in his life. Tins is the kind ot man that the intelligence of the United States has had for the last four years as its ruler. It is a.6 wonder that there is a revoU against it. An administration paper sets up, as against the charges of ex travagance preferred against the party in power, the fact that the debt has been largely reduced. This is a mere subterfuge. That the debt has been reduced merely proves that the amount drawn from the people by taxation has been large enough, after a .large porportion has been squandered, to leave a balance with which to pay off the debt. The charge of extravagance is proved by the amount spent, exclusive of debt principal and interest. That a mount is greater than ever before in time of peace, and it is greater because the administration is wasteful and is surrounded by corrnptionists and plunders who feed upon the treasury. The Administration party, un der the generalship of Morton and Conkling, propose to carry North Carolina "if it costs half a million dollars!' Theie is some thing in this dogged declaration that reminds one of "fight it out on this line if it takes all sum mer!'' The principles of either campaign are the same, and the hope of success based upon over whelming odds, and the operation of the known force of attrition. " We can lose three men for one," said Grant; we can Bpend three dollars and more to their one," reason tho Grantites, and with good cause, as they hold the purso ftrings of the National Treasury. It is worthy of special notice that all the Grant speakers sent to North Carolina are office-hoi ders. They go to plead for a con: tinuation of their bread and but ter, uot to discuss great questions as intelligent freemen would do before their countrymen. With such leaders, and - $200;000 ab stracted from the United States Treasury, Grant hopes to carry North Carolina in August, and also in November. We find the following in the Cincinnati Enquirer, relative to Hon. L. D. Campbell'3 position in the present canvass- We are pleased to learn that the health of Hon. Lewis D. Campbell, ot Butler, is improv ing. Mr. Campbell has faith fully and judicijusly represent ed the Third District, aud his friends and constituents will find as much gratification as we do in the announcement that he is himself again. Mr. Campbell, thougli at first inclined to reject the nomination of Mr, Greeley, has about conceded that t hero is hut one thing to be done by those who would be rid of Grant, ad there is every reason to believe that the "Butler Pony" will be heard from during the canvass. The man who throttled Schenuk iu his own stronghold w'll be none the less effective in the lew District. The Germans of Cleveland, O, headed by the Republican Ger man Daily of that city, are al- m, "st unanimously opposed to Grant.- They won't go for the man who sold arms'to the French to kill their relatives with. No true Democrat can Ion"- hesitate to support Greeley, since he or Grant will be the next President. POLITICAL NOTES. Solomon L. lloge, a South Carolina carpel-bag Judge is tel ling the negroes that "Horace Greeley, if elected will sell therti back into slavery.'' The Cleveland Plain Dealer says: "There are at least 2,500 German Republicans in Cuyaho ga County who will vote against Gtant, and Ohio is about as sure for Greeley as is New York, which will give him a large ma jority. JiKfge "ieorgo W. Cate, who has been on the Wisconsin Bench since 1854, and who has voted tho Republican ticket, beginning with Fieuiont's candidacy, has announced lis preference for Horace Greeley over Grant for President. Ex-Governor Blair, of Michi gan, an anti-Grant Republican member of Congres., in his i een t speech at Jackson Michigan, suit! that'-thi Administration is Sim ply damnable, and no other words can describe it!" And Governor Blair knows whereof ho affirms. Allen iVavden, Of Darlington, Wisconsin, who was a Lincoln President in 1 Elector in 1864, and a Grant Presidential Elector in 1868, in an oration at Argyle, Wisconsin, on the 4th of July, severed himself from theAdmin istration party and. announced himself a supporter of Horace Greeley. The Kenton Democrat (Harden county Ohi(t) published last week a call for a ratification meet ing to bo held last Saturday evening, which is signed by forty-two Republicans- who declare their intention to vote for Gree ley. It is not an uncommon thieg to hear a Liberal Republi can or two about these days. All the Administration papers say: "There are-few' or no Gree ley men here-aboufs," and yet all the Administration papers manifest the utmost fear of the Greeley ticket. The last advices from Illinois agree in estimating that more than one-third -of the Republi cans in that Stale are Liberals already; and it is four months to election time! One ot Mr. Sumner's friends in Wisconsin writes him that, after traveling all over the State, he is convinced that at least oiie-fit'tl. of the Republican vote will be cast ior Greeley. The Grant newspapers are en gaged now iu hunting up Demo crats who are sworn not to vote for Greeley. It's the only corn tort they enjoy. V . The Long Branch leaders and organs are reading bolters out of their party. The Long Branch family swear fearfully. The Prohibitionists of Mtchi gan have nominated Henry Fish for Governor. Jt is natural for fish to take to coid Water-, but this is the first. instance .in which the cold water has taken to a Fish. Eighty Republicans of llones- dale, Pa., have signed a call for a meeting lor the purpose of for ming a Greeley and Brown club It is reported that uot' a Republi can vote will be cast for Grant in Bethany, Pa., which has always given decided Republican majori ties. The Iowa Stadia Zeilung, the Radical uopnbliean German pa per in Pubuque, came out Satur day with the Greeley-Brown lick et at the mast head, advocating, in a long and able editorial, their claims to the suffrages of its rca ders. Long John Wentworth in a re cent spee'di delivered atChiciigu, lJI.,upon the issues ot the cam paign, -said: When I see Gen. G rant getting into bed with Gen. Longstreet, and I see the great guerilla Mos by come. out and indorse him, it is useless to tiilk to us Republicans, about our associating with Demo crats. (Laughter and applause.) 1 tell you it a man is honest, he is good enough for me to work for. General v.iraut bus said,"Ltt ns have peace, but the Apostle said, 'First pure, then peaceuble." The Chicago Tribune has been formally repudiated by the Be- publican Central Committee of Illinois leear se of its opposition to- Grant's re-election. The com mittee is composed of three inter nal revenue collectors, three as sessors, three postmasters, two de positaries, the partner of a whis ky supervisor, a Radical member of Congress, and four county offi cers. The Boston Post says: "The rapid formation of Greeley cluos, by Liberal Republicans, indicates the tone of public sentiment. In all the New England towns these associations are' being organized, and with a zeal that astouishes Uncle Horace's opponents. Thos. Jefferson Randolph, who was temporary chairman of the National Democratic Convention at Baltimore, is -i grand-son of homas detlerson. OUR BOOK TABLE. A liAHEOlTOHTUXITY FOR AGENTS.
