01 tne r mutational convention of the
Republican party.
Sixteen years ago, in the same city,
wag held the first meeting of the men
who, amid the darkness and doubts of
that hour of slave-holding ascendancy
and aggression, had assembled in
national convention to confer with each
other upon the exigencies into which
that fearful domination had brought
their country. .After full conference,
the highest point of resolve they could
- reach, the most they dared to recom
mend, was the avowed purpose to pro
hibit the existence of slavery in the
Territories. Last week the same party
met by its representatives from thirty
seven States and ten Territories, at the
same great center of wealth, intelli
gence, and power, to review the past.
take note of tho present, and indicate
its line of action for the future.
As typical facts, headlands of the
nation's recent history, ihere sat on its
pianorm, taxing prominent ana non-
orable part in its proceedings, admitted
on terms of perfect equality to the lead
ing noteis or tne city, not only.the col
ored representatives of the race which
were, ten years before, in abject slavery,
but one of the oldest and most promi
nent or tne once despised abolitionists,
to whom was accorded, as to no other,
the warmest demonstrations of popular
regard and esteem an ovation, not to
him alone, but to the cause he had so
ably, and tor so many yeare represented,
and to the men and women, living anil
dead, who had toiled through long
years of obloquy and self-sacrifice for
the glorious fruitions of that hour. It
hardly needed the brilliant summary
of its platform to set forth its illustrious
achievements. The very presence of
those men was alone significant of tho
victories already achieved, the progress
already made, and the great distance
which the nation had traveled between
the years I80G and 1872.
But grand as has been its record, the
Republican party rests not on its past
alone. It looks to the future, and grap
ples with its problems of duty and of
danger. It proposes as objects of its
immediate accomplishment "complete
liberty and exact equality" for all ; the
enforcement of "the recent amend
ments to the National Constitution
reform in the "civil service the "na
tional domain to be set apart for homes
to the people the adjustment of duties
on -imports so as to secure "remunerative-waes
to labor ;" the extension of
boundary to all soldiers and sailors
"who in the line of duty became disa
bled ;" the continual and careful encour
agementand protection of voluntary im
igration, and theguarding"with jealous
care the rights of adopted citizens the
abolition of the franking privilege, and
"the speedy reduction of the national
debt and the rates of interest," and "the
resumption of specie payments ;" the
encouragement of American commerce
and of shipbuilding ; the suppression
of violence, and "the protection of the
ballot-box." It also placed on record
the opinions and purposes of the party
in favor of amnesty against all forms of
repudiation, and indorsed the humane
and peaceful policy of the Administra
tion in regard to the Indians.
But while clearly defining and dis
tinctly announcing the policy of the
Republican party on these questions of
practical legislation and administration,
the Convention did not ignore the great
social problems which are pressing
their "claims for solution, ana which
demand the most careful study and
wise consideration. Foremost stands
the labor question. Concerning "the
relations of capital and labor" the lie-

enough; for their own iniquities are
terrible, and vastly overshadow any

In 1SG8, Judge Merrimon and his

ivhite children and the colored children
would be forced to attend the same
schools. Gov. Caldwell and friends
faenied this. The Constitution was
adopted. Who told the truth ?
Yes; Col. 'McAfee has been button-hole-
ing prominent Republicans, every hour
since his return, to effect that object, and he
doubtless thinks it very indiscreet in his
political friends to thus " go back on him,"

shaping legislation as to secure the full
protection and the amplest field for cap
ital, and for labor, the creator of capi
tal, the largest opportunities, and a
just share of the mutual profits of those J
two great servants of civilization."
The Democratic candidate for Gover
nor, Judge Merrimon, from the first,
both as a private citizen and profession
ally, has opposed the homestead. He
has used every endeavor, in every
walk of life, to defeat this wise and
beneficent provision of the constitution.
The Judges of the Supreme Court, a
majority of them, have sustained th$
homestead, even in its retrospective
action. I
The Supreme Court is composed of
five members; It is constantly liable
to changes. Some of them have already
tcen place, and if rumor is to be
credited, another one of the Judges
will soon resign, leaving a vacancy to
be filled by the Governor. One of the
Juxlges is more than seventy years of
age; another is nearly seventy. These
are not unlikely to die or become dis
abled by old age. Should vacancies
occur, the Governor will appoint the
new Judges. It is important to those
wno desire to retain their homesteads,
that the man who can appoint the
Judges should believe in the home
stead provision of the constitution, as
construed by the present Supreme
Court. They know where Gov. Cald
well stands and can rely on him. They
know also where Judge Merrimon
stands, and what he would do if he had
a chance. If elected Governor,! he
would, in case of vacancies in the Su
preme Court, appoint Judges hostile to
the homestead. The result would be,
Democratic lawyers would make up
caso3 for the new Democratic Jndges to
decide, and the decision of the Supremo
Court, sustaining the homestead, even
as against old debts, would be over
turned. Many Democrats have taken
advantage of the homestead, while
condemning the constitution and the
Court that secure it to them. " If they
cannot be reached in any other way.

New Postal Code. The Congress pass
ed a bill reducing into one act all the laws
relative to the postal system. We note some
of tho more important changes in the postal
arrangements of the country made by the
The most important is the authorization
of one-cent postal cards for correspondence
or for printed circulars similar to those
which were introduced into Great Britain
nearly two years ago, and are now in use
in nearly all European countries. The
House provided in the bill for a paper flap
to cover and conceal the writing. The Sen
ate changed this to an open card. In con
ference committee the style of the card was
left to the discretion of the Postmaster Gen
eral, who prefers the open card, and will
order that kind only to be manufactured.
The face of the card will bear a one-cent
stamp, and will bo provided with lines for
the address, and the back will be ruled for
the letter. Tho price of the card and stamp
will be only one cent. It will probably be
three or four weeks before they will be
ready for sale, as , the plates for printing
have yet to be prepared. ,
The law by which married women have
heretofore been Inhibited from being post
masters is repealed. 1
The act authorizes the establishment of
money-order offices at the branch post olH
ces of large cities ten such teing authorized
for New York and three for Boston. Until
now no branclr -office had power to issue
money orders. 'Assistant postmasters may
also be designated to sign money orders.
The act authorizes the Postmaster Gener
al to determine that between post offices not
three miles apart, as in the case of Washing
ton and Georgetown, New York and Brook
lyn, letters dropped in paid by stamps less
than a full rate, may be forwarded to their
destination and the additional postage re
quired on delivery.

A correspondent writes us as follows con
cerning the meeting : V -
"We had a very large meeting. Repub

Democrats, were present, and informed the
audience that they had severed their con

Lthe future wonld be found battling in the
ranks of the Republican party for Liberty,
Union, and Equality before the law.
! Mr. J. R. Sharp, our nominee for the Leg
islature, recently joined the Republican
party. He is a gentleman of considerable
ability ; belongs to one of the first families
of the State ; was an old Union Henry Clay

will win a triumphant victory."
