    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.

and the capacity with which he lately
represented his country at a foreign
rr.nrt.hns not detracted from his dis
tinornished reoutation.
in faithful devotion to the doctrines
and in earnest, able
assertion of the correctness of the prin
cinles of the National Republican par
ty, he is, and has been second to Ifo one
in the State. His position in the Con
vention of 1867, at a time when far
more than ordinary courage was re
quisite to stand against .the storm of
scorn," hate ami vituperative malignity
of the " virtue and intelligence of the
State," entitles him to the highest con
sideration, and the earnest support of
his party. , ,
Besides, though he has already be
come distinjrushed, he is not yet in the
prime of manhood, and so, in the very
nature of things, is more intimately in
active and co-operative sympathy with
the young, working men of his party,
with those, who being more interested
in the permanent Supremacy of the
party, are more willing to labor for the
permanent establishment of its princi
ples." .With such an one fo lead us on, one
able, of large judgement in public af
fairs, of noble person, having no supe

and triumphantly march to victory.

nhinA .vet, invented. are here enumerated.

A ehild ten vears old. with
a few hours practice, can thoroughly com
ii-ehend and effectually use it. 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.

All that is asked for this GREAT LABOR
SAVER, is a fair trial. -We guarantee each
machine to do its work perfectly.
