(ii.Mi.i.Mi:: In reply to jrour (Hcia communication "t' Jape 17. by which I am informed of my nomination lor the Omce of Pres ident1 of the United States by the Iiepnblican National Convention at Cincinnati. I accept tin- uoml nnt ion with xwtH ude, honing that under Proi iueriee, I shall lie able if elected, to execute the duties of the liiiili office a- m trust to Lhe benefit oi' all the people. 1 Jo not deem it necessary to enter upon any extended examination of the declaration of principles made by the convention The resolutions are in accord with oiy views and I heartily concur in the principles they announce. In sev eral of the resolutions, however, questions are considered which are of such importance thai I deem it proper to briefly express my convictions in regard to them. Till-: crVTLSEBVICB. The fifth resolution adopted by the convention is of paramount interest. More than forty ye aw ago a system oi maKltyg appoint ments to office grew up, bo i d upon the maxim, "To the victor.-, belong the spoils," The old nile, 'the true rule," that honesty, ca pacity, andfldelity constitute the only real qualifications for office, and' that there is no other claim, gave place to the idea that party services were to be chiefly cbnsiu eicd. All parties, in puaciice: have adopted this system. It has boen essentially modified since its first introduction. Ithas not, however, been improved. At first (lie President, either direct ly or through the heads oi depart- appoint the ap- i.l pjoteeUnii e tree (lliov ments, made all the meuts. But gradually confipMoe and biuiQevs, and te ri,tum.oyroHrity. Tin- anrer taint V i-nu lie ilnl.il in lil ollli way. "the n RUQiptioa ol ppecie payments," but the longer ti e in stability connected with our pre ent money tein is permitted to ( (iiitiiiue, the greater will be the injury inflicted upon our econotlh i ul interests, and all rfaMefl of mi eietv. If elected, I shall approve every appropriate measure to sic coiniilisli the desired end, and shall Oppose anv -i i f backward. The resolution with respect to TIIK PUBLIC II BOOt IVNTBM, is one which should reeeive the hearty suppoi i of too American people.

The resolution of the eonven- 1 lotrOfl the BUbjecl of the pcriiia- nent pacification of the conntrv and the cojnpleii all its citizens in the ment of all their constitutional rights is timely and of great im portance. Till: COXMTIOX OF Till; SOITHKKN BTTRS attracts the attention anil ( oni mands the sympathy of the peo ple of the w hole Union. In their progressive recovery from the af reets of the war their first neces sity is an intelligent ami honest administration el government which will protect all classes ol citizens in their political air! pri vate rights, what the South most needs is peace. Blld peace depends upon the supremacy of the law. There eau be no endu ring peace if the constitutional rights of an portion of the peo ple are habitually disregarded. A division of political parties, rest ing merely upon distinctions of race, or upon sectional lines, is al ways unfortunate, and may be disastrous. The welfare oi' the .-iouth, alike with that ol' every other part of the country, depends upon the attractions it can ofrer to labor, to immigration, and to capital. Hut laborers will not go, and capital will not be ventured, where the constitution and laws are set at deliance, and distrac tion, apprehension, and alarm lake the place of peace loving and law abiding ocia life. All parts of the constitution are sa cred, and must be sacredly ob served "the parts that are new no less than the part thai are old."

The ollioes in Chese cases have become not merely rewards for party servi ces, bin rewards for services to party leaders.. This system de stroys the independence ol' (he separate depart menls of the gov ernment. It tends directly to ex travagance and official incapacity. It is a temtationto dislipnesty; it binders and impairs that careful supervision and accountability by which alone faithful and efficient public service can be secured, h obstructs the prompt removal and sure punishment of the un worthy. In every way it degrad es the ciivl service and the char actor ol' the government. It is felt. I am confident, by a large majority of the members of Con gress, to be an intolerable burden and an unwarrantable hindrance to the proper discharge of their, duties, li ought to be abolished.. The reform should be thorough, radical, and complete. We should return to the principles and prac tice of the founders of the gov ernment, supplying by legislation when needed thai which was for merly established by custom. They nei I her expected nor desired Irom the public oflicer and parti san service; theV meant that pul lie officers should own their whole serv ice to the government and to tjio people: they meant that the officers should be secured in lys tenure as long as his personal character remained untarnished, and;the performance of his duties satisfactory, if elected, I Bliall aonducl ( lie administration of the government upon these principle and all constitutional ovvcrs ves ted in the executive will be cm ployed to establish lids reform. Tin: l'ttiisiniATiAi. TERM. The declaration of principles by t be Cincinnati 'onveul ion makes iio.anounceinenl in favor o( a sin fj;lo Presidential term. 1 do not assume to add to that declaration; hut believing that the restoration of the civil serv ice to the system established by Washington mid fallowed iy die early Presidents can be best accomplished by an executive whp is under no temta tion to use the patronage of his oHice to promote his own re elec tion' I desire to perform vv tint 1 regard as ;i duly, in Mating now my Inflexible purpose, if elected qol to be a candidate for election to a second term. 111 rut: euiutKM v QUESTION, i have frequently sxpressi tl my . iews in public, and D -.land by mv reooitl on this subject, I regard all lhe laws of the United Slates re lating to i he paj ment of i he pub lie indebtedness, the legal tender notes Included fit constituting ;i pledge and moral obligation of the government, which must n l 000 faith be kept. It is m' con victioa that the feeling of uncer tain tv in-en.nable from an irre .I. mabl paper currency, with its fluctuations of values, is one of the gre obstacle I to a i.-viv.:l of can be most eflectuallv advanced by a hearty and generous recog nition of the rights oi' all, by all; a recognition without reserve or exception." With such a recog nition fully accorded, it will be practicable to promote, by the in iiuence o'f all legitimate agencies of the General Government, the efforts of the people of those States to obtain for themselves the blessings of honest and capa ble local government. If elected, f 'l.11 .1 ?A A 1 i snan consider u nor oniy my duty, but my ardent desire, to la bor for the attainment of this end. Let me assure my countrymen oi the Southern States that if 1 shall be charged with the duty ol or ganising an administration, it will be one which will regard and cherish t heir truest interests, the interests of the white and the col ored peeple both and equally, and which will put forth its best ef forts in behalf of a civil policy which will wipe out forever the distinction between North and South in our common county. Wilhiucivil service organized upon a system which will secure purity, experience, efficiency, and economy, a strict regard for the public welfare solely in appoint ments, and the speedy, thorough, and unsparing prosecution of all public officers who betray official trusts with a sound currency, with education unsectarion and free to all, with simplicity and frugality in public and private af fairs, and with a fraternal spirit ol harmony prevading the people of all sections and classes, Ave may reasonably hope thai the second Century of our e xistence as a na tion will, bv the blessing of God, be pre eiuinen feeling," and a prosperity and Very repect fu voui as "an era of good ieriod of progress ninoines.-.
