The Liberal MoreEt Again. " Last week we Indulged in some spec ulations on the so-called liberal or Rs form movement, ia which we came to the conclusion that the call of the Cin cinnati Convention did not necessarily rnrpbode a snlit in the Bepublican 4,of. if nnder the truldanco of nnd ludicious counsels might re- sultin makine the party stronger;than ever before. There is still a possibility hat Mich may be the case. There are certainly some leading men connected with it who are utterly opposed to any schism and sepearate organization, and there is some reason to hope that they will be able to control the deliberations at Cincinnati. In this connection we print the following article from Tlie New York Evening Post, ona of the earliest and ablest Bepublican journals that embarked in the movement, as an AvJnpnrfi of what we have heretofore said on this subject, and as a part o the history-of the times: The convention called by the J Lib orui TtPTuihlicans" of Missouri to mee in Cincinnati en the first Wednesday in Mnv has now come to be regarded as the key to the national canvass hia vpr The call for this meeti ts-na noromnanifid with a. pretty ful etnVmpnt of the Drinciples on which if onthnro wish the government to be inducted, The Dlatform aTdheres to he fundamental doctrines heretofore adopted by the" Republican party, in eluding emancipation, the equality o all races in their civil right?, univcrsa suffrage and amnesty, anu goes on a rpform in the tarift, by t nhniitinn of nrotentive duties, a thor ougn reform in tne civn bcruiu abolition of "patronage," the restric tion f the national government to its proper ends, and a stop to its encroach ments n the states. It is only the Republicans who desire the reforms et forth " who are invited to meet in " National Mass Convention? in May, to take such action as our convictions of dutv and public exigencies may re ouire ' This "call was certainly drawn with remarkable ability, and expressed, in the main, the views of many able, In dependent and patriotic Republicans in other states as well as in Missouri. Some of the language in the resolutions was evidently selected for the purpose of casting reproach upon the present Republican administration, but in most of the points suggested the reproach was or at least had been just; and there was certainly nothing in them which set the liberal Republicans or the proposed Cincinnati meeting in op position to the Republican party of the nation. In fact the call was fairly in terpreted as an invitation to members of tho party who wish it to keep abreast of the times to meet and confer. Why should not Republicans who want to keep up their jparty life, and to meet every new question as it arises, in ac cordance with their old principles of equality and justice, consult together on the proper means of keeping the whole organization in the way of pro gress? Let all the Republicaps of the country who agree in substance with the call for the Cincinnati meeting come together there in person, or be represented by their strongest men, and there is no doubt that the Phila delphia convention will bo powerfully influenced by its deliberations and wishes. - . - But new importance has been given to the Cincinnati movement by politi cal managers. Seeing in it an impor tant centre of pow,er, they are attempt ing in many ways to obtain control of it and to use it for their own purposes. Instead of permitting it to be a council of independent and thoughtful Repub licans, desirous of improving the posi tion of their own party, it has been treated as a direct schism in the party, designed to break it to pieces. Demo crats have conspired to direct its action, and have approached its promoters, in the hope Ljnducing it to make nomi nations for national officers in advance of, the party convention; so that the democrats themselves might then eith er get the control of the Cincinnati 'machine," and run it as their own; or else, having used it to break down tho Republican strength, might be able to elect candidates of their own. Re publican politicians, too, who have no single bond of union with the "liberal Republicans," except their dissatisfac tion with the present administration, have offered to join the movement, and are even now negotiating for a place on the Cincinnati ticket, to be given to the most conspicuous enemy A. TT r i. (t,n inimn' t t ltt Now It is of the highest importance to the country, a3 well as to the Repub lican party, that the Cincinnati gath ering be confined to its proper work and form. Being a popular meeting, and not a convention of delegates rep resenting any party, it has nothing to do with naming candidates. Its busi ness is to consult as to the real issues of the canvass; to inquire, and by free discussion to ascertain, what the actual work which the people will demand of the next administration is to be; and then to declare what, in the judgment of the soundest minds in the Republi can party, are the true principles on which that work ought to be condcutcd. Let it declare in advance, as the fresh and imperative voice of the intelligent , people, what the Philadelphia Conven tion is bound to present afterwards as the formal expression of the will of the party. We venture to say that, if con ducted with wisdom, its moral power might yet so largely counterbalance the mere office-holders' influence at Philadelphia as to prevent the sanction there of anv false policy hitherto fa vored in Washington; ajjd to compel the adoption of a truly progressive platform looking to a general reform. Let it be understood, then, that he who joins the liberal Republicans at Cincinnati for a conference onthe duty of -the Republican party 'IT simply showing his devotion to the highest in terests of that party, and by .no means declares war against ii or abandons it. Aroint, pvprv Renublican who is in fvor of the continued ascendency of Republican principles in the nation and of the advancement of our stand ard in the direction of still further re form, especially in the civil service and in the revenue laws, go to Cincinnati, and help to keep the convention strict ly to its required purpose, and thus In u. r,r?t irmatKt nower : and save it, above all, from Perversions and bar gainings, from 'exchanging1 its princl Scs ferlhe support of factions, from, wangling aUiknces with the demo SKlheoId enemies of RepuWican Sm on the one side, and -with the foeaof true rtfonrj,'on tho other. t. , mm ;i 11 ' 1 l- An artesian well in Texas spouts toda water.

There is no nrlinstinfr. no screws to annoy, no delay in ndnntincr! It is always ready for use! is a i3erl'ect little wonder ! It is a miniature o-innt: doine-" more work and of a better mialitv. than the mst elaborate and costly. One' half of the labor is fully saved by its use, and the clothes will last one-half longer than by the old plan of the rub board. It will wash the larirest blanket. Three shirts at a time, washing thoroughly ! In a word, the ablution of any fabric, from a Quilt to a Lace Curtain or Cambric' Handkerchief, are equally within the capacity of this LITTLE GEM ! It can lie fastened to any tub and taken off at will. " . " ; - STo matter how deep rooted a prejudice may exist against Washing Machines, the moment this little' machine is seen to per form its wonders, all doubts of its cleansing efficacy : and utility are banished, and the doubter and detractor at once become the fast friends of the machine. We have testimonials without end, setting forth its numerous advantages over all oth ers, and from hundreds who" have thrown aside the unwieldy, useless machines, which have signally failed to accomplish the ob jectpromised in prominent and loud sound ing advertisements. It is as perfect for washing as a wringer is for wringing. The price another paramount inducement to purchasers, has been placed so low that it is within the , reach of every housekeeper, and fliere is no article of do mestic economy that will, repay the small investment so soon. : . $5.50. All that is asked for this GREAT LABOR SAVER, is a fair trial. -We guarantee each machine to do its work perfectly. Sole Agents for tiie Limited States, A. II.
