To Work at Once!
The friends of GREELEY
and REFORM should at once
commeuce work of organiza

are arrayed against us, but all

are Jnow terrified, surprised,
and astonished, will make a
determined and vigorous effort
to continue their lease of power.

The almost unanimous nom

for President by the National

one, except those in the interest
of the corrupt ring now gnaw
in"1 at the very vitals of our

representatives of the great
Democratic , party, and labor
earnestly for the success of the
ticket led by Greeley and
Brown. Let all abide the tie
cision of the Convention with
no vain regrets nor reserva
tions. There perhaps nevci
was a party ticket made, and
it is not likely that one ever
will be made to which many
of 1hose whose support was
essential to success, had not
personal objections. Yet it
wonderful how, for great pur
noses, and the love of what
they think sound principles,
men will adhere to their organ
izations despite private pique
and personal grievances or en
mities. And when, us in the
case of this corrupt Grant Par
ty, the Addition, Division and
Silence Party we mean the
party that is only organized to
add sp, divide, and to keep si
lent, about the huge sums sto
len from the Government (it
has no other name that will
truly indicate its object,) we
find nearly half the voters of
the country held together only
that the few shall be enabled
to commit acts of tyranny,
and to plunder- the pockets of
the people, it is not surprising
to find, men with forced and
time-tested principles, sticking
together by the force of true
and honest purposes only. The
combination formed by the
Conventions at Baltimore and
at Cincinnati is by no means
without example in the history
of parties. Now, for any hon
est man to even speak of. vo
ting for Grant is a sin against
his "Country, his God, and
Truth," and even to think in
his secret soul of doing such a
thing, is a thought that he
should, and most assuredly
will, repent of with' bitterness
and sorrow and in sack-cloth
and ashes.
These nominations having
been 'made, we trust that all
will abide the loud voice of
the ' National J)emocracy.
This course will be most grati
fying to every opposer of the
present corrupt Administra
tion, and distasteful only to the
adherents of Grantism. Let
us close up the ranks and pre

When the vote of Delaware
was cast unanimously in the
negative there was a good deal
of hissing and confusion in the
hall, whereupon tho President
said: I appeal to the Conven
tion, as a deliberative body, to
let each State vote its own
opinion without demonstration
either for or against. (Cries
of "good, good.". It is disre
respectful to make such dem
onstrations when the vote of a
State is declared.
A delegate stated that the
demonstration came from, the
galleries and not from the del
egates. The President said :
Let the gajlerie understand
that while voting is proceed
ing in this body they have no
voice whatever and should
make no demonstrations until
our proceedings ore closed;

We call this a full ticket, but
it iei evidently partial and - in
completete, for we have not,
been iibe to trace through all
the dci;ivesof propiiKuiitv and
blood the number of. relatives
that Grunt .has. billeted upon
the Public Treasury. There
are doubtless a great many
more, Tlie re-election of Grant
ineans the reappointment of all
these members' of his family,
and with a still wider circuit of
relationship. The question
h.i.s been brought up in this
canviias and Undecided in fa
vor of Grant, he may well
consider that hi policy of nm
Uiiii? nil i he ottices of the coun
try hi-1 pei ioii .ti perquisites has
been improved bv the, people.
It is maiiiiuiiied by his friends
1 1 1 m t it is (i proof of bis kind-
nefj.5 h-'Uit and generosity
that he l't ioeuibershis relations
and them out for pub
lic ho.'i'H", preferment and emol
ument, It ia not, therefore,
Mmply re-electing Grant, buc
re-electiiig all hU family down
to the 1 west degree, of rela
tionship, which is the question
presented. In this connection
we have heard a good story
which is wu,th telling- Grant
has a cousin who is a widow, in
Clermont county, with three
sons. He appointed two of
the son to profitable places,
ami as soon Jas the youngest
had acquired age he sent on
an appointment for him. To
this the widow very modestly
demurred, urging that . she
might, be allowed to retain at
lea-it one of the children at
home. Whether the Presi
dent gratified the request ha
not transpired, Our obje.ct in
presenting this ticket has-ben
to vindicate ' the Grant family
(other than Ulyse) from the
slander to which they would
seoin to be consigned by the
Grant organs. It is well to.
know for whom we are to vote.
We are not giving our suffrage
for one. man, but to the most
numerous family of whom his
tory has any record, which
rises or sinks together. , To
give the Grant ticket simply
with the name of Ulysses S.
Grant for President is only the
commencement of a ' long and
interesting story.

Everv vear increnses the noDulari-
ty of this valuable Hair Preparation ;
which ii duo to merit alone.. Wo
can assure our old patrons that it ia
kept fully up to its high standard;
and it is tho only reliable and perfect
ed preparation for restoring Gray
ob Faded IIaib to its youthful color,
making it soft, lustrous, and silken.
Tho scalp, by its use, becomes white
and- clean. It removes all eruptions
and dandruff, and, by its tonic prop
erties, prevents tho hair from falling
out, as it stimulates and nourishes
the hair-glands. By its use, the hair
grows thicker and stronger. In
baldness, it restores tho capillary
glands to their normal vigor, and
will create a new growth, except in
extreme old ago. It is tho most eco
nomical IIaib Dressing ever used,
as it' requires fewer applications,
and gives tho hair a splendid, glossy
appearance. A. A. Hayes, M.D.,
State Assayer of Massachusetts, says,
"The constituents are pure, and care
fully selected for excellent quality
and I consider it tho Best Prepa
eatiox for its intended purposes.'1

neither rub nor wash off.. Sold by
