    Hr. Greeley and' the South. "
yft print a commtinic&tiony more re
markable for Jteal than courtesy, from
Mr. John M. Harrell, member of the
Democratic National Committee from
Arkansas, reprobating the opposition
of The World to the indorsement of Mr.
Greeley by the Democratic party. We
understand the intolerable oppression
and wholesale robbery under which
the South suffers, and make allowance
for the asperity and unreflecting haste
with which an impulsive Southern
man resents any Northern opposition
to a ticket which, in his estimation,
rives promise of relief. If it were
possible to admit that the Indorsement
SfMr. Greeley by the Democratic
National Convention- would free .'the
Southern States from Federal tyranny,
a Southern citixen would be Justly In
censed at opposition to Mr. Greeley by
a Northern journal which has made
steady professions of friendship for the
South. But we think Harrell miscon
ceives the whole situation. He has a
ridiculous overestimate of the impor
tance and influence of Mr. Greeley. He
does not seem to understand that Mr.
Greeley has thrown away the great
ascendancy he once had over the Re
publican party. His peace mission to
Niagara, his advice to President Lin
coln to offer $400,000,000 as a compensa
tion to the Boutnern siave-noiaers, ana
his subsequent signing the bail-bond of
Jefferson Davis, estranged so many of
Mr. Greeley's Republican friends that
which they Are so grievously oppressed.
He has done more than any other man
to fasten the yoke upon them, and un
less he recants and apologizes, we do
not see how those who complain of the
measures can expect relief from their
chief instigator and advocate. New-
York World, Democratic.
Democratic Support of Mr Gree-
' i . ' ... ley.' ,
Mr. Greelev concludes an artic
his "prospects" in yesterday's Tribune
ina wav which indicates a derreeof
distrust and wavering .which the ad
mirers who put him in the field ought
to regret and resent. He gives a pretty
clear Intimation that, unless he Is in
dorsed by the Democratic party, he
will retire from the tsinvass; for this
sentence will hardly , bear any other
interpretation : .
For these and kindred reasons, we are
morally certain that the Liberal Republi
cans will maintain and extend the organi
zation, npbold their banner, and support
their candidates to the end, unless the Demo
crats shall see fit to drive them off the course
which they are not likely to do.
This undignified bid for Democratic
support has but a small apron of fig
leaves to cover its nakedness. If Mr.
Greeley does not mean that he will
withdraw from the canvass unless the
locratic party adopts him as its can
didate, his language has no intelligible
meaning. We submit that this U treat-
his hold on the party is . reduced to t"

Attention Old tiNsNvnia3-A
great deal of sympathyjs attempted to
be worked up from the old line Whigs
of the South now for the Greeley tick
et', MThe fact is that the old line Whigs
were always - moderate men, and the
present occasion is the one of all others
which' should f cause' them to vote for
Grant, in order to avoid the extremes
of Locofoceism or Tarn many ism, on the
one hand, and Greeley radicalism on
the other hand. Grant is a moderate
man a fair man and has administer
ed the laws In as mild a manner as pos
sible to the Southern people. He has
been just; generous," humane and firm,
apd this is all that reasonable people
could expect of him. LThe South has
no reasonable! complaint to make of
him; and we think their common
sense would dictate to them that where
they might only possibly get one that
would suit them better under the pres
ent state of affairs, they are likely to
get a dozen who would suit their ideas
a good deal less. It seems to lis that
the old. line Whigs with their moderate
Ideas could not do better than discard
both radical factions and fall in with
the Republican party in the support of
General Grant. JSorjouc uay jsook.

Greeley has thrown away his Republi

counter to the prevailing sentiment of
the party. Most Republicans would as
soon vote for an out-and-out copper
head" Democrat as for the foremost
signer of Jefferson Davis's bail-bond.
The politicians who speculate on the
Republican following of Mr. Greeley
misappreciate his recent standing in
the Republican party. Since the Union
Leasrue Club forbore to turn him out
after his signature of Mr. Da vis's bond,
' he has been rather tolerated than fol
lowed by his former political associates.

suppose that he has any considerable

To be sure, Mr. Greeley is the editor
of what has been a powerful party
journal. But his present . position as a
solicitor of Democratic votes win es-
equivalent to telling the Liberal - Re
publicans that he considers them of lit
tle account, except as jackal to the
Democratic lion. It 111 becomes. Mf.
Greeley to thus belittle the importance
of his Liberal Republican supporters.
What he really says is, that their nom
ination is not worth his . acceptance,
and that he is waiting to see whether
he gets that of the Democratic fcarty
before he fully makes up his mind to
stand as a candidate. Considering hew
cavalierly the Cincinnati Convention
disregarded Democratic wishes, it is
odd enough to see their candidate thus
earlv hanc out a flacr of distress arid de
clare that ne must sink without Demo
cratic support, j ,.:
Does Mr. Greeley intend to accept, or
to decline, the Cincinnati nomination?
We suppose that by this time he must
have received the official notification,

Tribune, repudiated by the Republican
party, has sunk to the position of a
' more personal organ, and is more teebie
and Inane tnan ordinary personal or
gans', inasmuch as the editor is pre
cluded, by the proprieties of his posi
tion, from the out-and-out advocacy
characteristic of that class of journals.
'The Tribune has deprived itselt of all
freedom of expression and comment in
this Presidential campaign ; it has cut
loose from and alienated the Re
publican party; and having thus sever
ed its political connections, and put a
gag in its mouth by the acceptance of
its editor of a nomination for the Presi
dency, it has sunk into the position of
a mere news-gatherer in the most in
teresting crisis which has ever arisen
In our politics. Having lost the confi
dence of -Republicans, and not gained
the confidence of Democrats; having
deprived itself of the freedom of ex
pressing independent opinions, it is a
nonentity in politics till this Presiden
tial election is decided ; and if its editor
should not be elected, he will be the
most signal example in the history of
journalism of a powerful editor falling:
between two stools. Even if he should
be elected, he will have sacrificed The
Tribune. The Republicans will not
tolerate it after it has deserted their
party, and the Democrats will regard
it with no favor while it advocates
ideas and principles which they have
always repudiated. The influence of a
great journal has been sacrificed to the
personal amoiuon or its cmer. t

opinion as to Mr. Greeley's hold on the

Greeley have in the South as a Demo
cratic candidate? As a Democratic
candidate pure and simple, no man in
the country could have a weaker hold
en the party, i II he can draw off neither
negroes nor white Republicans, what
advantage can there be. in adopting
him as the Democratic candidate? The
indorsements he has thus-far received
In the North are not Republican but
Democratic indorsements; but - it is
preposterous for Democrats to indorse
him except on the supposition that he
will bring an accession of strength to
the party.
Assuming that the negro vote will be
given to Grant, we cannot imagine
what would be gained by a Democratic
indorsement i of Mr. Greeley. To be
sure, he favors universal amnesty ; but
a President can do nothing to promote
amnesty except through the pardoning
power. . President Johnson, in his last

Mr. Harrell virtually admits, while
he finds fault with our statement, that

the XlVth amendment would be a
trivial matter in comparison with relief
from the other evils endured by the
South, andrntailed hy the legislation of
Congress. lie seems to forget that ail
this unrighteous legislation was advo
cated by Mr. Greeley with the trucu
lent vehemence he has always shown
in such matters. Before Southern citi
zens come to the strange conclusion
that their salvation depends on Mr.
Greeley's election, they had better ask
him whether lie repents of his strenu

an act of indelicacy toward the Demo
cratic Convention whose nomination
it would put him in the attitude Of so-
. liciting, and of offering to aecept before
it was tendered him. We cannot see
how it could accord with honor or pro-
. ; a x i. i is a
pneiy w uius euuoruiiiaie a nomina
ton offered by his friends to one which
he desires from his political opponents.
irne accepts the Cincinnati nomina
tion, he will thereby bind himself to
remain in the field to -the end of the
canvass, whether the Democratic party
inddrses him or not. If he declines the
Cincinnati nomination, he -forfeits all
hope of a Democratic indorsement. If
he waits and vacilates, making no an
swer to the Cincinnati notification until
ho can eatiefy himself what the Demo
cratic party will do, he will be acting a
more time-serving and undignified part
than"ought to be expected from aj man
of his political standing. He is bound
to ccept the Cincinnati nomination
unequivocally, or else to decline it un
equivocally; and in either case, to
stand inflexibly by his decision.) He
cannot play his card and still keep it
in his hand. He must put it down
when his turn comes and take the risk
of its being trumped.
His article yesterday seems tOj be a
notification to the Democratic party
that he will not remain in a position
to divide the Republican vote, unless
it will inure to his - personal advance
ment. This "heads I win, tails' ou
lose" game will not answer. Mr. Gree
ley must either decline 'the Cincinnati
nomination and with it all hopes of a
Democratic indorsement, or he must ac
cept it without - Democratic pledges,
leaving the Democratic party free to
act according to its sense of the public
food without any entanglements. When
e virtually threatens to fall bajck into
the ranks of Grant's supporters unless
the Democratic party will nominate
him, he puts himself into a position in
which no judicious friend -.would pwish
to see him. Does he still feel bound by
the declaration put forth in The Trfbune
of April 10? That declaration was in
the following language:
1. If there shall be Democratic candidates
for President and Vice-President in the field,
we purpose to support that Republican ticket
which seems most likely to succeed.
2. If the main issue in the canvass shall
be Protection against Free Trade, we; shall
(no matter as to the candidates) be found on
the side of Protection.
3. But if (as we hope and expect) there
shall be two Republican tickets, and none
other, presented with any hope of success,
we shall favor that one whose election will
be, in our judgment, most likely to pro
mote economy in public expenditure, puri
ty in legislation and in administration,' sub
stantial unanimity in upholding for all cit
izens a complete equality of rights under
the law, and hasten the return of fraternal
concord and mutual good will between
those who were arrayed against each other
in sanguinary strife throughout onr -great
ci?n war. , ' - : -
If Mr. Greeley still adheres to the
purpose then expressed, he has bound
himself to support Grant if the Demo
cratic party nominates a ticket. He
thus stands in the unenviable position
of soliciting Democratic votes against
Grant, and at the same time threaten
ing to. support Grant himself unless
those Democratic votes are given to
Mm. It is due to himself and to; all
parties that Mr. Greeley should une
quivocally define his position. He must
make it clear that he will not supbort
Grant in any event, before self-respect
ing jemocrais can even consider the
fed to appear to show cause why condemnation
fchould not be decreed, and to intervene for their
interest. I
