Special to the Indianapolis Journal t ' , : . Richmond, Ibd., April IS. ' General Tom. Browne, the Republican can didate for Governor of Indiana, opened the campaign in a speech at Lyceum Hull, in this city, last night, to a large and enthusiastic audience. The General prefaced his remarks by stating thai he had but two days' notice of the desire of the Republicans of Richmond that he Bhould address them, anil consequent ly had not been able to make such prepare. tion as he desired.' He stid he wss not there to champion any man, but to pay an humble tribute to the party which has engraven , its enduring and exalted principles upon the policy of our American institutions. He iraced the history of the Republican party from the inauguration of the rebellion down to the present time, after which he briefly al luded to the amnesty, favoring amnesty to every person who was In good faith attached te the institutions of the country. He then reviewed the national debt, and the rapidity frith hioh itfwea being paid and vindicated the adminiatration from the charge of profligacy and corruption. He compared it with past Democratic adminiatrations, and established that its losses were less than any edminia tration for the peat forty years, paying per :icular attention to the record of the Demo cratic party of Indiana in this respect, show ing that D. C. Stover, a former Democratic Agent of the State, during Governor Wit lsrd's administration, forged two millions four hundred and forty thousand dollars of State bonds, and put them on the New Yorks market, and thisinm exceedei a!! the loase by Grant's appointees during the three and one-half rears ef his administration.

Ministers will permit, will even invi te, what other men would resent. The merchant in a city, the Butler that the advocates of civil service reform were the friends of the Cincinnati convention, and con sequently the enemies of the Presi dent. The impression this made upon the country is that tho Pres idenf, ia appointing the Civil Ser vice Commission, and In urging upon Congress the passage of a bill embodying the recommenda tions of the commissionerf?, was insincere, and that there was a tacit understanding that while be would seem to favor reform, Con gress would defeat it. This is tho ground taken by the organs of tho new departure Republicans, and the New Y.rk Tribune fiercely assails the President upon this point, while it has not a word to say against members of Congress who ure determined to defeat the measures recommended by the President, there is need of reform in the civil service. This is gen erally conceded. It is demau led by the people. Therefore it has been made a hobby of by the new departure Republican.. Before the Cincinnati convention was called however before it wa3 tven thought of Grant recommended reform, and measures were iaaugur ated to bring it about. These the President has steadily favored and still favors, and in his inter view with Messrs. Perry and i5ar ficld he gave evidence that he un derstands the subject thoroughly; that he sees clearly the abuses that exist and the cause, and that ho is sincerely anxious to correct the one and remove the ether.

He then discussed at some length the Ku-Klux legislation, and the charge that the government was becoming centralized. He said that this was becoming a familiar charge ; that during tbe war Lin coln was denounced as a tyrant, and the na tion as a military despotism ; that it was simply a resounding of the old rallyiug cry of tbe Klans that were opposed to any re storation of the Union that left treaaon out. He believed one ol the results of tbe storm and agooy of the revolution through which we hare passed, was to nationalize citixen ship, aud put the life and liberty of tbe weak est and humblest under the protection of the Government. He paid an eloquent tribute to the Union soldiers, and concluded by showing that their mission was not ended, but wae ex pected to accomplish much in tbe future, con cluding as follows: "And is something not due to ths child who gave up a father, to the wife who sacrificed a I patronage, and Senators husband, and to tho mother who bore and laid him, bleeding and mangled, on the altar of the country t Yes.

That's the way the New York Tribune proposes to dodge its responsibility on the tariff That belongs, it tells us, to the congressional districts. That is precisely where civil service re form now belongs. The President baa done his part. He has gone as far in pressing rciorm as tue Constitution authoi izes. More can not be expected of him . The res sponsible parties now are those members of Congress who, on Fri day, voted to recommit tho bill with authority to report at any time, which was equivalent to kill ing it, and tho intention of the vote was to kill it. If the opponents of Grant are honest if they are fair minded they will hereaiter cease at least to charge him with opposition to civil service Reform Cincinnati Ga zette and Representatives demand their share.

HOMESTEADS AT LAST. On Friday of last week the Senate of the United States per formed an act which will entitle it to the gratitude of soldiers for a'l coming time: and not to be lcit be hind, the House on Monday com pleted the work so far as lay in its power, and having received the signature cf the President, is now a law.

The resources of ingenuity are exhaustod in devisinr pleasant and playful metaphors to do scribe the presentation, and sometimes the statement is as formal and cricp as an advertisement. Donation parties are occasionally made the object of a little gentle satire ; but it is not because they are donation parties, but because the onations are not big enough ! "Ac cording to the ecclesiastical almanac," says a religious paper, "now is the time fcr ministers to look out for donation parties,' which, in the words of one of their uumber, -are cheerful gatherings. when a clergyman's flock overwhelm him with bead watch-pockets, and eat up about one nundred an I twelve dol lars worth of his winter provisions.
