The State of North Carolina, which was at first considered car ried by toe Conservatives, is nosv uncertain, and will no doubt be changed for Grant under the manipulations of his managers. The Legislature is sure by eigh teen on joint ballot, and we bave five out of the eight Congressmen- It ia a victory notwith standing, and a crushing defeat of the Grant dynasty. The Meeting at Columbus. The Democratic and Liberal Republican mass meeting at Col- umbus on Wednesday of last week vvas large and enthusiastic. Speeches were made by Gov, B. Gratz Brown, ITon, Thomas Ew ing and others. Gen, Ewing and Augustus Thieme were selected as Electors' for President and Vice President of the State at large. The country Las been laboring under a sad delusion or some yeara. TVe had always supposed that Horace Greeley was a good Republican and a loyal man du ring the war. But it ia now in cinuated that he was in the con spiracy to burn up the Northern cities; and to prevent his election the Thompson report is published in full. We have always baliev ed the rebs hated Greeley worse than anybody else; and that his paper would have been onofthe first to be burned up by Jacob Thompson's emissaries. But the superior knowledge of the Regis ter and other papers causes us to hesitate in our opinion. Horace Greeley not a loyal man! What next? Come on with your shows! - The fate ot Grant and his cor rupt followers is sealed. The in digations from every part of the TJnion show that the ablest "men of the Republican par y are de serting the present taker. Nor is this "departure" confined to such men as Greeley, Sumner, Schurz, Trumbull, Logan, Gov. Palmer, of Illinois, and Brown. The defec tion ia widespread, and includes men of the greatest influence ar.d the most commanding abilities men who made Grant what he is, and who can as readily unmake . him. The office-holders at Wash ington and elsewhere are tremb ling in their boots, as they begin to realize that their tenure of of fice ia most precarious. The Louisville Convention, to change the flag, pay for.the eman cipated slaves and pension rebel soldiers, will meet on the 3rd of September. "YVe mention this matter siaiply to remind the Radi-cal.-, who are expected to be pre seut to swell the crowd and add to the enthusiasm, that they may uot fail to be preernt.

The present political move j mer;t is not so much a partisan c unlit ion as a Popular Revolution. It is the uprising ot an indignant auu v.' i t .4 m auiVJ it i o biJ2 r UiL V of the masses against a man whose chosen associates are mun whom (ew ot our beet citizens would, invite to their tabids, t Grant has billeted his personal ! relatives and favorites upon the country by appointing them to j offices for vhich they nve notor- j iously unfit He has used the I vast patror.age ot the govern- mailt n a tliniwtt t n'npi iiiih nf rh perquisites of his position, with out regard lo tiie public service or wellare, pledging every appoin tee to labor for his re-election. He has accepted presents from at! eorts of persons, and rcwaided the givers by official honors. He has filled the southern States with his creatures, and enforced their extortions, with the military tow er until one-third of the Union a'ands to-day on the verge of ruin and anarchy. He has bullied Congress into the support of his pet measures, winked at corrup . tion and fraud, retained infamous' officers long after their unfitnes was demonstrated, surrounded himself by a staft' of military tools in violation of the Constituting, lowered the standard of our pub lic services abroad, compromised the national houor in his dealiugs with Englan J, insulted honorable and patriotic public servants who have opposed his Mild or wilful schemes, and finally divided the Republican party by insisting up on his own renomination, and us ing all the power and patronage of the Government to secure it. Nothing he has ever said or done gives the impression that he knows or cares anything about either tho letter or the spirit of tbo Constitution, the genius of oar institutions, the great priuci pies on which the welfare of the Republic rests, or the iolicy of a sound, consistent administration of public affairs. His govern ment is a complete failure iu every respect, and its failure would have been disastrous but that the country has been at peace. It is such a President, whose unfitness for the Chief Magistracy of the nation is striking and notorious, whose re-election wo oppose on every ground of national policy and honor. Now it is not every man who understands the moral mean i n g of the great upheavals of the mas sea amoug whom he "lives ami moves and has his being.'' Nor is it every participant in the Liberal Reform movemeut who compre hends its full or chief purpose the logic of its own argument. ' It means honesty in the gov ernment. It means civil service reform It means the civil law exalted over the military. It means an emphatic protest against nepotism. It means State Rights against federal interference. It means the subordination of the military power during peace. It means that the President shall not portion out his offices among his brothers in-law and cousius and uncles and wife's re lations. ' , It means the re-uniting of the sundered North and South, the cessation of past hatreds, the o! livion of old revenges, the clasp ing of once hostile bunds in the spirit of uuity and the bond ot peace. It means the grafting of the red rose and the white on one and the same stem. It means the healing of the wounds of the rebellion the re storation of fraternity and broth erly kindness between Montague aud Capulet theknitting togeth er of the dissevered sections into a common country. It means Universal Amuesty which is the application ofthe Christian religion to civil govern ment. It means the restoration of bus iness relations between the Lakes and the Gulf. It means the end of war, the be ginning of peace. It means that we must beat the gift-taker. In fine, It mean "THE ERA OF GOOD FEELING." The movement, therefore, has the primal ruerP of being right and just, and now takes to itself the added advantage of being popular and powerful. With our whole heart we shall labor for it, and with unblenclung faith we i nrrinriAfiV itn xrocw nnnriit "Clasping Hands Across the Bloody Chasm." The Democratic and Libal Republican. Congressional Conventions! UNITE IN A JOINT UNION CONVENTION. An Enthusiastic Gathering AND NOMINATION OF A MAN TO BEAT GUNCKEL. The Democratic Convention of the Fourth Congressional Dis trict, composed of the counties of Parke,. Preble, Montgomery and Greene, assembled in Beckel Opera House on Monday morn ing, Aug. 5ih, and temporarily organized by electing Judge 'iil more, as President, who came forward and thanked the Con vention in a neat and happy speech. At this stage of the procedings Mr. A. A. Thomas, at the head of a Committee from the .Liberal Convention, walked iuto the hall, and as soon as their presence was discovered by the delegates, aud an intimation of their purpose givet, they were greeted wit! loud aud long continued shouts of applause. Mr. Thomas, after the cheers had subsided, presented the fol lowing resolution from the Liber al Republican Convention: Whereas, the Democratic Dia trict Convention is row assem bled -tor the purpose -of nomina ting a candidate for Congress, and a Presidential Elector; and Whereas, we recognize a com mon purpose in this campaign .resolved, that we hereby pro pose to -the Democratic Conven tion that we meet in Union Con vention at 2 p. m. for the purpose of making nominations on the fol lowing basis: The Democrats to cast the votes apportioned to their beveraliounties by their Ex ecutive Committee, and the Lib eral Republicans to cast 10 votes for Montgomery County, and two additional f-om the Soldier's Homf, 5 votes from Greene Co i and 5 vots from Darke Co. JResoloed, That a committee of three be appointed to bear thi resolution to the Democratic Convention. No sootier had Mr. Thomas read the com-nunication than the Conven'ion greeted it with re- newed shouts of satisfaction, and Mr. J. D. Kenney, of Montgome ry, moved that the Communica tion be received and the terms proposed therein accepted, which was carried without a single dis senting voice. A committee of three was ap pointed to convey forthwith to the Liberal Republican Conven tion the acceptance, by this Con vention of their proposition. The Committee consisted of Charles Darlington, ot Greene; John Bettelor., of Montgomery, Charles Anderson, of Darke, and L. G. Gould, of Preble. The Convention agreed to take a rectss until 10 o'clock which then assembled and was called to order, and the Chairman of the Committee on permanent organ ization reported the following: For President, Hon. W. Gil more, of Preble. For Vice Presidents, Abner Dunlap, of Preble; A. J. Christo pher, of Greene; Hon. John Bet talon, of Montgomery; Captain Clias. G. Matchett, of Darke. For Secretary, Johu Baggett, of Montgomery. For Assistant SecretarieR,Chaa. Andersou, of Darke; L. G.Gould, of Preble; Robt. Miskelley, of Montgomery; George Noville, ot Greene. Pending the nominations of candidates, the following report on resolutions was read: 1. That we indorse and ap prove of the action ot the' Liber al Republican Convention at Cin cinnati, as ratified by the Balti more Convention. 2. We cordially invite all con servative men of all parties to vote for Greeley and Brown, and the candidate of this Convention; that the honor of our country may be maintained, and that fraud and corruption may no longer permeate every part of the Government. 3. Resolved, That we cordi ally indorse the principles enun ciated in the Cincinnati Conven tion that the question of tariff ought to be remitted to the peo ple of each Congressional district; and, in view of that principle and action, we the representatives of the 4th Congressional District, declare ourselves in favor of a tariff for revenue only.

Liberal Republican Win ans, 5. Greene County. Winans, 15 Democratic, and" 6 Liberal Re publicans. Montgomery Democratic dele gation Parrott, 41; Winans, 28. Liberal Republicans Parrott,12. .Preble County Democratic delegation Winans, 18. Liber al Republican Winans, 5. Col. Parrott moved that Judge Winans be nominated by accla mation, which was carried by loud cheers of assent. As eoon as order was restored Judge Winans came forward and tendered his earnest and sincere thanks for the honor conferred upon him. He cousideied it something more than an honor, aud after October I.e. hoped to have au opportunity to showhow he would discharge the duties thus put npon him. John L. VVinner.of Darke cor n ty, was chosen for Presidential Elector. We will jast add here that the Liberal Kepubncan Convention met in the Ooun House, and was organized by selecting our young fn-nd, J. G. McNutt, Eq., of this place as their Chairman. It was a very respectable meet'ng in number and intelligence. Every thing passed oft' in the b st of feeling, and everybody returned home satisfied of success. What Henry Wilson said in 1856. "In the heart of the foreigner beats not a single noble impulse. nut one single throb of patriotism! He is so brutal and degraded that he has no sympathy for anything but cabbage and luger beer, pota toes and butter milk, or some ot h er outlandish dish, fit only for hogs of the street or pen. All the oaths in the world can not bind them. "Some tell me that many for feigners are intelligent! How m the name of Almighty God can they aay it? Look at the Dutch man smoking hu pipe, and if you see a ray of intelligence in that dirty, idiotic-looking face of his, show it to nier vVe.iuo.it change the laws of the land at.d prevent these ' gno r.iiit, degraded paupers herefrom votiug and 'holding olhce.

They are interior in intellect and intelligence to the Americans, and they must be nd shall be put down and keep down if it has to be done at the point of the bayonet aud with powder and lead." Since the Presidential cam paign narrowed down to one be tween Greeley and Grant, Rev J. .& Mahtin, a prominent colored delegate from Louisiana to Phila delphia, has declared for Horace Greeley. So has anothc promi nent negro, Mr.. Saunders, nomi nated for Grant Elector in Marj-- land. So has still another, Mr, Smith, a graduate of Howard Un? ytrsity. The last two will take the stump in iSorth Carolina at once. Moreover, the resignation of Mr. M. W. Rockwell from the New York Grant Committee baa been followed by that of Mr. S.C Taber from the same Committee for the same adhesion to the Liberal fteform partv.

The spirit of 184) ft abroad in the land, and there is to be another revolution greater and grander than that which caught up Gen. Harrison and covered him with the mantle of Van Buren. The united Democrats ana Liberals of Illinois have selected a full electoral ticket. POLITICAL NOTES. The claim of the Bopporters of Grant that his Administration has been an ecconomical one is disproved by the report of its own Cabinet officers. These statistics show that in the class ot expendi tures incidental to all administra tions there is an increase of 20 per cent, under Grant, and this, too, without including the nnmerons defalcations and embezzlements. Joseph Brooks, the Liberal can didate Governor of Arkansas, makes this manly declaration ot principles: "My litVs energies hhall be consecrated to the ac complishment oft he great work of Reconciliation, upon the bacisui the Cincinnati and Little Rock platform-",."

Noth ing except Greeley's death can prevent thetu. Johu G. Saxe, politician and poet, is going to take the stump for Greeley. Ex-Con?re8smnn Sedrewjek, nf N.

Philadelphia Germans are or ganizing Greeley clubs. Fiehtinsr Joe Hooker has de clared for Greeley. Gen. Banks has declared for Greeley and Brown. In thi cour&e of a few weeks, Gov. Gratz Brown will begin u stumping campaign. He will visit New York in September, and HI deliver speeches through out the State. The Detroit Free Press obser vea that the Grant papers are be ginning to begin their articles thus: "In ; he event of Greeley's election."
