The announcement of yesterday's
work /at Baltimore will kindle an
enthusiasm throughout the country
the like of which has not been seen
in our political contests for more
than a quarter of a century. The
people will now take up these can
didates and elect tliem, as earnestly
as they secured their nomination at
Baltimore. They took it up ill op
position to the protest of many lead
ing politicians, and to-day it goes
before countty with such an indorse
ment as no Presidential ticket ever
received. It is eminently tho work
of the people.
the DEMOCRACY IDENTIFIED WITH THE
CAUSE OF TIIE PEOPLE.
Trum the Clliittanoogii Times.
By this action, tho party that has
heretofore, with much show of rea
son, been known as the reactionary
party, has thrown aside tho weights
and clogs that have incumbered it,
and has fairly and squarely identi
fied itself with tho cause of the peo
ple. The restoration of friendly re
lations between tho States ; harmo
ny, peace, equality before the law for
black man and white, and its watch
words henceforth. Tho supporters
of Greeley and Brown and heart
and soul for tho Constitution as it is,
administered in the spirit of liberal
ity and kindness.
REFORM, REUNION, AN1> RECONCILIATION.
From the Columbia South Carolinian.
In view of tho great popular sen
timent which has been developed in
the country, it will not be denied
that the Baltimore Convention has
faithfully carried out the views of
tho people whom it represents. Be
fore it assembled, the Democratic
decree had gone forth ; and when it
met it promptly registered that de
cree and formally sanctioned it. It
has lifted itself above the piano of
mere partyism and exhibited a lofty
patriotism. May its action be crown
ed with success, and thus a triumph
be secured to the cause of reform,
reunion, and reconciliation.
AN HONEST ADMINISTRATION.
Fr.im the U':;i»sti;u (Va.) tiiizettc.
Horace is now our candidate for
the Presidency. He is the chosen
candidate of a Convention in which
the South had a voice. He is kindly
disposed toward us. Ile has declar
ed that, if elected, he will know no
party and no section, and no past
differnces or sectional questions, in
the administration of tho Govern
ment. From him we may at least
expect something like an honest ad
ministration of tho monetary affilies
of the country ; for whatever he
may be, we cannot charge him with
theft, nor venality, nor avarice.
THE WAVE OF 1'OrULAl! SENTIMENT.
From the Augusta, ((Ja.) Constitutionalist.
The overwhelming majority for
the Cincinnati ticket on the first bal
lot, in the Convention, shows the di
rection of tho wave of popular sen
timent throughout tho Union, and is
an augury of tho triumphant suc
cess of tho nominees cf the Liberal
Republicans and tho Democrats.
Now that Greeley and Brown are
before tho country as tho standard
bearers of tho two great parties who
have joined hands in order to throw
from power tho present corrupt Ad
ministration, we trust that all lovers
of honest government, all who do
siro to be rid of Grant and his usur
pations will give their cheerful sup
port to the ticket and do everything
in their power to secure its success
greeley before grant always.
From the Lyuclibiu'g Vii'Riniuu.
The lines are now clearly drawn,
all the moderate Conservative ele
ments of the country being enlisted
under one banner—that upheld by
Horace Greeley—while the Radical
destructionits follow tho flag of U.
S. Grant, and go wherever his per
sonal fortunes may lead. There will
be no other candidates who can com
mand a respectacle number of fol
lowers ; and so we are shut up to
tho choice of Greeley and Grant.—
One or tho other of these candidates
will bo the next President of the
United States ; and, wo feel quite
sure, a majority of tho people do not
believe it should be Graut. It is only
necessary therefore for all who are
opposed to tho present corrupt rule

From the Sehiiu (Alii.KTime».
The die is cast ! The Baltimore
Convention, the mouth-piece of the
Democracy of tho Union, has spoken
and placed our standard in the pen
ding Presidential contest in the
hands of Horace Greeley. Such ac
tion by the Convention was antici
pated and expected by the Democ
racy, and desired by all who sincere
ly wish to see tho Federal Govern
ment rescued from the crew that has
control of it. The country demands
a change, and tho belief is well nigh
universal that tho only chance of se
curing that change is in a union on
Mr. Greeley of all the elements op
posed to the Grant ring.

From the l 'ichmond Whig.
Wo need not say that, in our
judgment, this result, in tho present
condition of parties and tho country,
is the very best that could bo effect
ed. We have long believed that the
best salve for the wounds of a coun
try lacerated by a terrible civil war
just such a combination as this, em
bracing the most patriotic and un
selfish men of both the great par
ties. It was a union which required
the highest and the most benignant
atatesmansiiip and most self-denying
patriotism, and happily for the cc«r
try, that statesmanship and patriot
ism were not wanting. Success un
der such a banner opens no now
wounds and heals the old. That is
its distinguishing and pre-eminent
a CLOSE and cordial coalition.
From the Xorlollc (Va.) Journal.
The adoption of the Liberal Re
publican platform and the nomina
tion of the Liberal Republican can
didates for the Presidency and Vice
Presidency of the United States by
the Democratic-Conservative Con
vention at Baltimore, yesterday, es
tablishes the fact of a close and cor
dial coalition between the opponents
of Grant, his policy and his party,
without reference to present preju
dices or past associations. The Lib
oral Movement, initiated aud inau
gurated in Virginia, assumed such
shape in Missouri as to mako it na

The live men of tho country who
were dissatisfied with the Adminis

From the itnoxvillc (Tenu.) Press and lleraltl.
The patriotic instincts of a long'
suffering peoplo have taught politi
cians and party leaders a most whole
some lesson in tho art of popular
combination. In spito of all the sel
fishness and prejudice and intrigue
of party, tho peoplo by a common
impulse have come together, and,
yesterday, through the last and most
important Convention of tho cam
paign, completed the work of con
solidating their own strength against
tho corrupt personal Government at
Washington. The work of organ
izing aud harmonizing the opposi
tion, so auspiciously begun at Cin
cinnati, has been most gloriously
concluded at Baltimore. The as
surance being now given that Grec
ley is to lie the solo candidate against
Grant, the thousands of Republi
cans who prefer tho Republicanism
of Greeley to tho personalem of
Grant, no longer restrained by their
hcroditiiry fear uf the old Democratic
party, will hasten to avow their ad
herence to the Liberal cause.
the liberal movement tiie outgrowth
of popular desire.
From the Columbia (S. C.) i'liu -nix.
The nomination of Mr. Greeley,
which was at first a source of grave
apprehension to muuy, has proved
to be a most fortunate ovent. Ho
has developed immenso popularity,
aud seems to grow in favor as tho
hours increase. Every stop, indeed,
in tho Liberal movement from its
inauguration to the present time has
been a success, which proves at once
that it has been directed by saga
cious counsel, and that it is tho out
growth of a wide-spread popular de
sire. The people are tired of war,
war measures, war politics, and sec
tional hatred and strife, and arc anx
ious for a restoration of friendly aud
confidential relations between the
States, and to return to the ways of
peace, and order, and economy, and
civil law. If they are elcctcd, then
we may hope that the despondent
and oppressed South, whose candi
date Greeley especially is, will be re
stored to her full rights in tho Union
and South Carolina bo speedily re
lieved of her accursed carpet-bag
misrule, which the sympathy of
Grant's administration has alone
sustained thus far.
REUNION AT LAST.
From the Charleston (West Va.) Free Press.
In the nomination of Horace Gree
ley and Gratz Brown tho National
Democratic party has immortalized
itself. It has evinced a lofty patri
otism—a genuine lovo of country
which challenges the admiration of
mankind. It has made a sacrifice
oi' party-feeling for the good of the
nation unheai'd from in political his
tory. Tho gratitude of all parties si
due this noble body of men. From
the South, all crushed and trampled
on as she is, it will rise like the per
fume of a bruised flower, for her de
liverance from the military faction
which, forever brandishing the sword,
wishes to terrify her into a slavish
submission inconsistent with man
hood ; the North—longing to hold
out tho hand of reconciliation to her
smitten sisters of the South-laud,
but ever kept back by the cruel pol
icy of the present Administration—
will thank them for allowing her the
long-desired opportunity ; East and
West will resound with tho praises
and admiration of a united people.
TIIE DAWN OF TIIE DAYS OF PEACE.
Fsoni the Riehmond Dispatch.
The expectation of tho country
has been realized. Horace Greeley
and B. Gratz Brown aro tho Demo
cratic nominees for President and
Vice-President of the United States.
The work of tho Ciunciuuati Con
vention has been finished. They
who worked at Cincinnati " builded
better than they knew." It seems to
bo a fresh illustration of the adage
that " man proposes but God dis
poses." Is any friend of decentrali
zation apprehensive that Mr. Gree
ley will try to dwarf tho States ? Is
any Freo Trader afraid that ho will
use his influence to perpetuate the
Protective system ? Is any Demo
crat afraid that he will turn his back
upon the Democratic party when he
coines into power ? The answer is
that Greeley is au honest man, and
would not accept votes under false
pretenses. He vfill live up to tho
Cincinnati platform and his own
rendering of that platform. He will
restore good government to the conn
try, peace to the people, and frater
nity between tho North and the
South. Ho will allow the war is
sues to drop out of sight. Ho will
walk in tho ways of peace. His acts
will redound to the glory aud honor
of his coUlitry, and to tho perpetuity
of the union of the States.
broad and honest principles against
fraud and tyranny.
From the Charleston I'ourief.
The Liberal Republicans and the
Democrats being united iu principle,
both the ono and the other being
engaged in the struggle to rid tho
country of the corrupt Crcsarisin
which is destroying its liberty, it was
but natural that they should select
the same candidates. The result of
this selection will necessarily be, that
tho strength of neither party will be
wasted, and the power of both will
be concentrated on the conimou ob
ject. Now that the Convention lias
spoken, the contest is narrowed
down to two candidates. Either
Greeley or Grant will be the next
President of the United States.—
The ono stands on a platform cm
bracing broad an honest principles,
while tho platform of the other sanc
tions every fraud, every act of tyran
ny, every wasteful grant of tho pub
lic domain to gigantic corporations,
the imperalism at Washington, and
the supremacy of the sword over the
law. This is the real contest, and iu
voting for tho ono or tho other wc
indorse ono or the other set of prin
ciples. The enthusiasm for Mr.
Greeley camo first from the South,
and at the South he will receive a
support as earnest and as enthusi
astic as he will receive among his
warmest friends at home.

This is what the Shrevcport Daily
Times says of tho Laserc-Randolph

Grant under its present management

As it appears and as it stands, no

will have nothing to do with it. We
will go into no combination that

This was also the sentiment that
prompted tho action of the democrat

members of tho committee who have
acted in opposition to the prepared
policy of that convention and of the
