President Grant has negotiated far
more favorably with England than pre
ceding administrations, and has intro
duced the principle of arbitration in
the settlement of differences between
Nations, which will inure to the inter
ests of peace and the happiness of the
world. It will establish a new epoch
of justice and comity among Nations.
Four-fifths of the cases of official de
linquency and nine-tenths of the loss
occasioned thereby, have been entailed
through the corruption of officials, the
responsibility for whose appointment
rested upon the previous Administra
tion, while the present Administration
has exposed their dishonesty, reinoved
them from office, and, as far as practic
able, punished their crimes.
Greeley was stronger the day after
the Baltimore Convention than he has
ever been. He has been losing ground
ever since. The fact is now quite clear
to all intelligent observers that the
adoption of a renegade Republican .as
a candidate for the 'Presidency by the
Democrat party has proved a barren
device. Greed of power, place and
plunder on one side, arid insane ambi
tion on the other, has molded the sem
blance of an organization into shape,
but it is cemented by no love of honor
able principle, and carries with it no
elements of strength. Its overwhel
ming, utter and ignominious defeat
can be safely predicted. j
Grant is the first President who ever
recommended and j inaugurated a sys
tem of .Civil Service Reform which
makes office dependent upon fairly con
ducted ?and competitive examinations;
which inakes dismission from the pub
lic service to depend upon misconduct,
which j leaves the attainment of office
open to all classes bf citizens alike, ir
respective of political opinions and re
ligiodjjcreeds, andwhich deprives the
National Executive of all benefits to be
derived from, clerical appointments.

A. Summary--What the Republi
can Party . Has Done is Proof of
What it Will Do. :
1st. Among the first acts of the Re
publican Congress, after some necessa
ry measures te resist the Democratic
rebellion, was the adoption : bf the
Homestead law under which the whole
mass of the publip domain is opened to
the 'possession and ownership of the la
boring man, upon the , coridition of set
tlement and cultivation, at the nomi
nal price of $10 for 1G0 acres. )
2d. Provision was made by which
this vast property is largely enhanced
in value, and ; rendered accessible to
men of limited means, over the lines of
the Trans-continental Railroad the
construction of which had been delay
ed under Democratic rule, by the fear
that free labor would possess this rich
inheritance, toi the exclusion of slave
labor.; 1 j'-V
3d. The whole system of servile -la
bor was abolished by the Republican
party, in spite o the United and per
sistent opposition of the Democracy in
Congress and on the battlefield

An account by one of, these victims
of Butler's order, related that she
witnessed these outrages day after: day
on the purest and best young girls she
had ever known, that as many as fifty,
brutes in succession would outrage ono
woman j and that some "actually died!
from exhaustion and pain, in the hands
of their lustful tormenters. .: . . , ,
Yet, Mr. Greeley defended this stato
of things, proclaiming . that Jt was
" most righteous, timely, and wise.11 "
-: The Southern people, however, deem
ed it so im-righteous, wn-timely and un
wise, that they authorized President
Davis ' to outlaw, lajor General Bi F.
Butler,1 in a proclamation wherein
Butler was characterized as an Van en
emy to ft is kind." '
The people of the South are now call
ed upon to endorse these outrages upon
their women, by voting for Greeley,
and so rebuke-ex President j Davis for
issuing his Butler proclamation. . As a
Southerner . and-a Confederate soldier
we beg to be excused.

For some reason Mr. F. B. McDowell,
candidate for elector on the hybrid
ticket, was not present. After Mr.
Ramsay had concluded, Mr. R. Z. Lin

by the people of that county for the
House of Representatives, without no

reply. At the conclusion of his speech

Mr. Greeley gives the Democratic par

ready do they begin to feel j that their,
"discoriafiture" is to be "signal and con-,
elusive." When Mr. Greeley penned
