Chicago Ills., May 19, 1868.
Dear Republican: The "Like
City" is agog this morning. Politics
run high and the amount of caucusing
and thimble-rigging going on is un
told, and will be, outside the many
different "rings." But, let us not get
on politics, as there will be enough of
that hereafter. I will toll you how I
came here, and the way-side impress
ions. A rloomv, disagreeable morning
was an unfortunate time to leave
"Waynesburg. The road to Rice's
Landing was shortened, however, by
tho company of our townsmen Flcnni
kcnaml Campbell, Esq., both of whom
are at present in this city. Once at
the Landing, tho button-holers of the
Old Line of Steamers wished to trans
port us and our luggage immediately
on board the "Klisha Bennett," which
kind wish met with no favor in the
party, having 'concluded before-hand
to go down on the splendid steamer
of the New Line. They tried their
Calliope on as, bnt it would'nt do.
Its hideous noUc is enough to drive
all tho birds out of the woods along
the Monongahcla. On the "Chieftain"
it was dull, perhaps, caused by the
weather, and tho scarcity of people
traveling, so I sought my state-room
and forgot surroundings until aroused
for supper. Six o'clock, the furnaces
and fires of the Iron City glared across
the water, and a comfortable bed and
room in that best of Hotels the Moir-
ongahela terminated tho "first day
The following d;y at 3 J o'clock our
party left on tho Tan Handle Route
for Chicago via Columbus and Rich
mond. I was never on this Pan Han
dle road but once before and then I
Lad no reason to wish seeing it again.
This time the star of our luck went
down with the jumping off the track
of two cars just ahead of us, in the
Pittsburgh tunnel. Fairly on our
way wo sped right merrily along
through a good country and by pic
turesque landscapes. Sunset, the iron
bridge, the river and city of Steuben
ville, grouped by the eye in one gor
geous picture from the eastern shore,
will gladden the heart of any lover of
the grand in nature and art. Night
came down on us soon after entering
Ohio and by tho time we passed Den
nison and had our supper it was time
to seek rest. Alas ! for us there was
none. It was our fate to change cars
at Columbus at 12 o'clock, 'and noth
ing remained but to brave it out. In
vain I wooed the "sweet restorer."
The multiplication tabic would be ex
hausted in an attempt to calculate the
numerous attitudes struck to win her.
Too tired to talk, I tried cigars. Feet
up and head down and vioe versa. It
mu no use,soIstiffened back inmy seat
and gave attention only to the chang
ing sky, the clank of the train and the
erio-coruie growls and grunts of fel
low miierabUe,, 12 o'clock, we reach
ed Columbus, the .ley clear and the
air cold. Here we changed for the
through train to Chicago. During
the few moments we stopped I observ
ed they had no vwy elegant depot
for a plaoe of its typuUd tit and im
portance; but of the city proper, ay
view wm limited to a long line of gilt
terlng street lamps tntaking right
and left.
Away walbtfled and until morning
dawned were oblivious to everything
excepting the noise of the train. With
the gray streaks of dawn betokening
the retnrn of light, I brightened up to
catch what I could of the kind and
and quality of the country, nf the in
habitant) and their peculiarities, Ncar
ing the western boundaries of Ohio by
this route I was surprised to find tho
land so level, It resomblea much the
esstem part of Virginia, the soil only
being black loam instead of sand. It
looks poor, and if I may judge from
what I saw it is as poor as it looks.
So in tho eastern part of Indiana, until
you come to Lognnsport on the Wa
bash, omitting some few elegant scopes
and one or two flourishing "Western
towns." Strctchins away from Io-
gansport to tho north-west is tho real
prairie land, dotted at intervals by
snug-looking farm houses, rank with
psturage ami covered with grazing
herd. To the eye unfamiliarized by
acquaintance, it presents a degree of
sublimity. The streams are deep and
sluggish and tortnous in their wind
ings. Throughout the length and
breadth of our vision, cultivation
seemed mot prosperous as, indeed, it
does along tho whole route. Sundav
afternoon, tho steeple of Chicago
loomed up on tho plain ahead liko tho
royals of a fleet of men-of-wars-mcn.
Rounding to on the west side of town,
we came up alongside the depot plat
form and set our feet down in Chicaco
the famous, renowned Chicago!
Soon wo were snugly ensconced in
good quarters ready to "do" the city,
nominate candidates for the Republi
can party, or make ourselves useful in
anv wav.
I must acknowledge my first im
pression of the place not good. My
opinion is that it is the best advertised
city in the United States, and from
that fact it derives its prestige, llicrc
is nothing at all remarkable in the ap
pearance of tho city, on the contrary
it is common-place. The suburbs pre
sent no attractions whatever. The
houses are frame, the land low and
wet, and at this time, streets not paved
are hub deep in black mud. True,
the business part of the city is well
built, but nothing extra. Fine resi
dences arc scarce in comparison with
cities approximating it in population.
But I am not here to run the city
down, these are only nvj convictions.
Many of tho citizens are thorough-bred
Yankees, and any one acquainted with
their style know them to be energetic
and go-ahead-a-tive, but most con
founded "blowers." That's what they
arc "on" in Chicagfi.
As first intimated in this letter pol
itics arc high, rampant. The city is
filling up fiist and among them arc
many Greene countians, some direct
from Pennsylvania, others residents ot
these parts. Of the former are the
partv I am with, Maj. J. J?. Morris,
Capt. Bent. Donley, Dr. A. B. Miller,
of tho latter I have met Mr. Robt.
Adams, (of Elijah,) Mr. Wm. Lindsey,
B. K. Iliginbotham, J. T. Ham
mers, and othera hern on business and
as delegates to the different Conven
tions. And of all these there are none
who by Rome hook or crook will not get
tickets for the great Convention by
the way, rare exotics in this latitudcas
not one in a thomand of the strangers
in this citv will get in. You sec
"Greene county" is able to take care of
itself at "all times and under all cir
cumstances." The weather is most
propitious for the work ahead.
May 21. I detained this letter
beyond anticipation and by way of
prerogative will add, that you already
know, who are favored with daily
mails and telegraphs, The National
Republican Convention of 'G8 has
passed into history. Grant and Col
fax arc the nominees amid the wildest
As I write heavy guns are thunder-
dering on the square and the shouts of
the people minglo with the hoarse
notes of rejoicing. This is a proud
day for onr country. Of tho Soldiers
and Sailors and tho National C'onven-
vention, I'll write anon. J. E. 6.
We publish elsewhere the proceed
ings of tho Chicago Convention as
complete as our columns will permit.
The Convention was perhaps the
largest ever assembled for a like pur
pose. Its entire proceedings were dig
nified, wise and most earnest and en
thusiastic. But the distinguising and
crowning feature was its perfect har
They did their work deliberately
and did it woll. They gave us Ulys-
E3 S. Gkaxt for President, which is
in accordance with the universal de
mand of the loyal masses, every
where; and for Vice President Schcy-
Leb Colfax than whom no better se
lection could have been made. Suf
floe it for the present to say that both
are well known to every school boy in
the country, and to every news reader
in the civilized world, the one as a
conquering hero, and the other as a
typo of the most exalted American
Statesmanship. The Platform is a
reiteration of the time honored princi
ples of the party, which are principles
of eternal truth and justice. The cause
we espouse, at set forth in the Resolu
tions of the Convention is the cause of
country, right and humanity, and hav
ing choatn oar leader let oa pot onr

it out on that line." Qbajtt, Colfax,

Chicago, May 20. At 12.30 p. m.
Oov. Ward, Chairman of the National
Republican Committee, called the Con
vention to order. In a brief address
ho urged the delegates to take no steps
backward, to demonstranstrate that the
war was no fiilure, and an emancipa
ted raco lifted from slavery to-day
uuites with the Republican party to
lu iintain Republican liberty. Neith
er armed treason nor political treach
ery arrest tho triumph of tHir
cause. Applause. If you desig
nate as leader tho great captain of tho
age, the nation will greet it as a pre
cursor of victory to our cause and
peace to the public. Applause.
Prayer by Bishop Simpson.
On motion of Mr. Wnrd, General
Carl Schurz, of Missouri, was made
temporary Chairman, and was conduc
ted to the chair amid applause.
General Schurz delivered a brief
address, in which he returned thanks,
and sketched the history of tho Repub
lican party, and its triumphs in sup
port of liberty, union, humanity and
equal rights. The problem of the fu
ture is to secure tho fruits of the past,
and adapt the country to the new or
der of tilings. This required the
greatest prudence and firmness. In
referring to Lincoln, ho said we meas
ure our loss through his death by what
ho left behind him. (Laughter anil
applause.) With good counsel and
moral courage victory will be true to
the Republican party so long as the
Republican party is true to itself. Let
not persons carry us bevondthe bounds
of wisdom and self-respect. (Ap
plause.) He counselled wisdom, jus
tice to the soldier, to the Southern
Union men; to the colorod race and to
the National creditors. This senti
ment excited great enthusiasm. Lot
us be just inside of the party as well
as out of it.
Temporary Vice Presidents and Sec
retaries were appointed.
It was then ordered that the Secre
taries call the roll of States, and that
each delegation respectively shall name
one gentleman, that those thus named
shnll constitute a Committee on Cre
dentials. After a lengthy controversy over
the propriety of calling the unrecon
structed States and the Territories, the
motion was agreed to.
In like manner, Committees on per
manent organization, on resolutions,
and.ordcr of business, were appointed.
On motion it was
Resolved, That all resolutions offer
ed be referred without debato to the
Committee on Resolutions.
On motion of Gen. Sickles, the
Convention took a recess until five
The Convention re-assembled, pur
suant to adjournment, at 5 o'clock.
The Committee on Credentials not
being ready to report, Hamilton Har
ris, Chairman of the Committee on
permanent organization, reported the
name of Joseph R. Ilawlcy, of Conn.,
for permanent President of the Con
vention. This announcement was re
ceived with tremendous applause. The
President was conducted to tho chair
by Ex-Governor Solomen of Wiscon
sin, and Ex -Governor Brown of Geor
gia, amid great cheering for Hawley,
Brown and tho retiring Chairman,
(Jen. Schurz. When the latter pre
sented the permanent Chairman, the
Convention received him with the
heartiest outburst of enthusiasm yet
Mr. Hawley addressed the Conven
tion as follows:
Gentlemen of the. Convention : I ten
der yon my most grateful thanks for
the high honor you have conferred
upon mo. Deeply impressed by a
sense of the responsibilities of tho po
sition, I earnestly solicit your indul
gence and your aid. We come togeth
er charged with the momentous duty
of selecting the chief rulers of the great
nation which leads the world in the
promotion of freddom and equd rights.
(Applause.) The indications of your
purposes and spirit already given as
sure us that you will maintain the no
ble character of the republican party.
We unavoidably recall at this time the
Convention of 1860 with its profound
anxieties. Its fresh, pure and glow
ing devotion to libcity, and its enthu
siastic acceptance of the wager of bat
tle tendered by slavery and secession.
(Applause.) It now seems clear to
us that God then ruled our counsels.
He made our declaration of principles
manly and sincere. He gave us Abra
ham Lincoln for President. (Tremen
dous cheering.) God send us like
wisdom and success to-day. Ap
plause He tested us in that moment
and to an extent which the liveliest
imagination could not have anticipa
ted. Posterity, we hope, will decide
that we met that test with the spirit
worthy of a free people. Countless
treasure and three hundred thousand
lives offered were the evidence that
we were solemnly in earnest. We of
fered our lives and our property, but
it was not enough.. We laid our pre
judices of race and class upon the al
tar, and the consciousness that we at
least deserved success redoubled our
nerve. The same high resolve rules
to-day, and the honest men of this
country are ready for equal and even
greater, sacrifices, if they be indispen
sable, to the dedication of this Conti
nent to liberty and equal rights. Ap
plause. We learned the first lesson
when we found that we must make all
men free and call them to the battle
field. -We learned the fwfond lesson
when we found that we must still
moye and give impartially to all men
a share in the Government we were en
dearoring to restore. Great applause.
With a clear and fearless expression
on the essential and important ques

tion at issue, which the people all un
derstand, and no ingenious device, no
wordp can obscure of avoid, passing
by all personal nid temporary contro
versies, working in fVrfect confidence,
that the American people mean to
do right and will do it, iu the end we
may teel sure of trjumph. The pow
er of a nation of forty millions must be
behind the just claims of tho poorest
working man, of whatever race, to re
cover even just wages. Its majesty
must bo felt wherever tho humblest
loyal man appeals against jwrson
al violence and oppression. Cheers.
Every dollar of tho national debt tho
blood of a soldier in ploged for. En
thusiastic cheering. Every bond, in
letter niul in spirit must be as sacred
as a soldier's grave, renewed cheers.
Wo must win. gentlemen, and we shall
win. It is 'tlio old fight of liberty,
equality and fraternity against op
pression, caste and aristocracy. It is
tho old fight tn make the world better,
"with malice toward none and with
charity for all." Loud applause.
We may hault for a moment, or change
direction, but tho good cause always
goes steadily forward. It is related,
and whether it be true or not, the in
cident is well invented, that in the
evening of that awful battle of the
wilderness, when tho legions of the
Union army had fought all day rather
by 'faith than by sight, in the wild
woods and tangled brush, that some
man asked General Grant to step back
ward a little and re-organize, and that
he replied: "We have done well, gen
tlemen; at half past three in the morn
ing wo move forward." Long con
tinued cheering. We accept his spirit
and his words. Perhaps I am not
anticipating in saying that wo shall
accept him in person again as our
leader. Loud cheering. Thanking
yon again, gentlemen, very heartily
for the honor conferred, I await the
further pleasure of tho Convention.
The remaining officers of the perma
nent organization were then announced.
The Chairman announced the Com
mittee to receive the delegation from
the Soldiers' and Sailors' Convention.
Tho delegation from the Soldiers'
nnd Sailors' Convention were conduct
ed to the front of tho platform and
were presented by General Cochrane,
in the following remarks:
Mr. President, I have the honor, in
behalf of the Committee recently ap
pointed by yourself, to announce that
they have discharged the duty to which
they were appointed. I introduce to
the Convention, through yourself, Gen
eral Fairchilds, of Wisconsin, chairman
of tho Committee to which I referred.
Prolonged cheers.
General Fairchilds Mr. President
and gentlemen of tho Convention, as
instructed by the members of the Sol
diers' and Sailors' Convention I appear
before you on their behalf to present to
you a resolution passed unanimously
by them yesterday afternoon as follows:
Resolved, That wo the soldiers and
sailors, steadiest now as ever to the
Union and flag, fully recognize the
claims of General Ulysses S. Grant to
tho confidence of tho American people,
nnd believing that the victories won
under his guidance in war will be illus
trated by him in peace by such mea
sures as will secure tho fruits of our
exertions and restore the Union upon
a loyal basis, we declare our deliberate
conviction that he is tho choice of the
soldiers and s:iilor3 of the Union for the
office of President of tho United States.
Loud Applause.
Gov. Fairchilds continued:
The soldiers of the United States
ask the nomination of General Grant
for President, because we love him,
and wo love him, sir, because he is
loyal to the Union, loyal to justice, loy
al to freedom and loyal to right, and
if you will give us our comrade as a
leader in the campaign of '68, we will
blow up the enemy's works as we did
in the field in '61. Applause
Ma. Cochrane moved that the res
olutions from the Soldiers' and Sailors'
Convention, as reported, be accepted,
entered upon the record, and made a
part of tho proceedings. Adopted.
While waiting for tho report of the
Committer on Credential, which it
was announced would soon be readv,
General Logan was called for a speecli,
but declined to respond at that time.
Gov. Brown of Georgia, a recon
structed rebel was called out and
proceeded to address the Convention
at length in a speech of great power,
at the close of which, Gen. Lee, of
Louisiana, Chairman of the Commit
tee on Credentials, reported the names
of several delegates from several States.
In regard to Pennsylvania, he said
there appeared fifty-nine delegates,
whereas that State was- entitled to only
fifty-two votes. The Committc rec
ommended that the fifty-nine dclejatcs
be admitted to seats upon tho floor of
the Convention, and that they bo
authorized to cast the fifty-two votes
to which the State is entitled, such
being the wish of the Pennsylvania
TheCommittee recommended allow
ing each of the delegations from the
several Territories the right to seats
upon the floor, and privilege of casting
each two votes. The same was ac
corded to the District of Columbia.
From Maryland the Committee rec
ommended the admission of the Cress
well delegation, but they accorded seats
on the floor to the contestants without
the right to vote.
From California they recommended
the admission of the regular delegates
headed by Cocy and Steveiis.
In response to a query by Mr.
Warner, of Pennsylvania, the Chair
man of the Committee said the dele
gates from the unreconstructed States
are included in this report as entitled
to seats and votes.
The report was then adopted.
Mr. Barker, N. Y., from the Com
mittee on Order of Business, reported
the following rules :
First Upon all subjects before the
Convention, the States shall be called

Mr. Van Zandt moved to strikeout
the words "Tho National Union Par
ty," and substitute in their stead
"National Republican Party." Cries
of "good."
Tho President In the call for this
Convention tho title is "National
Union Republican Party."
Mr. Logan of Illinois, suggested
that the name be the "National Union
Republican Party."
Mr. Van Zandt's amendment, as
thus modified, was carried and the re
port adopted.
It was moved that when tho Con
vention adjourn it adjourn to meet at
this placo to-morrow at ten o'clock.
Thereupon the Convention adjourn
ed till ten o'clock to-morning morning.
Chicago, May 21.
The Convention was called to order
at 10:15. Prayer was made by Rev.
Dr. Gulliver, of Chicago. The Pres
ident announced that the Committee
on Resolutions had just sent word they
would not be ready until eleven
After the transaction of some inci
dental business Mr. Hassarack of Ohio
was called out and delivered an able
and eloquent speech.
The President The Committee on
Resolutions is now ready to report.
lion. Richard W. Thompson, of
Indiana, Chairman of the Committee
on Resolutions, advanced to the plat
form and reported as follows:
The National Republican party of
the United States assembled in nation
al Convention in the City of Chicago
on the SWtli clay ot iuay, loop, mane
the following declaration of principles.
first We congratulate the country
on the assured success ot the recon
struction policy of Congress as evinced
by the adoption, in a majority of the
States lately in rebellion, of constitu
tions securing equal, civil and political
ritrbts to all. and resard it as the duty
of the Government to sustain those
institutions, and to prevent tho pcopJe
of such States from being remitted to
a state of anarchy. (Cheers.)
Second The guarantee by Congress
of equal suffrage to all loyal men at
ho South wna demanded by every
consideration of public safety, of grat-
t. i i . . .. i.
itude nnu ot justice, bhu iiiust ue
maintained, while the question of suf-r-.n

. foiirtA It is due to the labor of
the nation that taxation should be
equalized and reduced as ruptdly as
the national faith will permit.
Fifth The natural debt, contracted
as it has been for the preservation of
the Union tor all tune to come, should
be extended over a fair period for
redemption, and it is the duty of
Congress to reduce the rato ot interest
thereon wheuever it can honestly be
Sixth That the best policy to di
minish our burden of debt, is to so
improve our credit that capitalists will
seek to loan us money at lower rates
of interest than we now pay, and must
centinue to pay so long as repudiation,
partial or total, open or covert, is
threatened or suspected.
Seventh The Government of the
United States should be administered
with the strictest economy, and tho
corruptions, which have beeu soshame
fully nursed and fostered by Andrew
Johnson, call loudly for radical re
form. Eighth We profoundly deplore the
untimely and tragic death of Abraham
Lincoln nnd regret the accession of
Andrew Johnson to the Presidency,
who lias acted treacherously to the
peoplo who elected him and the cause
lie was pledged to support, lias usurped
high legislative nnd judicial functions,
has refused to execute tho laws, has
used his high oflico to induco other
ofiicers to ignore and violate the laws,
has employed his executive powers to
render insecure the property, fdice,
liberty and lifo of tho citizen, has
abused the pardoning power, has de
nounced the national legislature ns
unconstitutional, has persistently and
corruptly resisted, by' every measure
in his power, every proper attempt at
the reconstruction of tho Stites lately
in rebellion, has perverted the public
patronage into an engine of wholesale
corruption, nnd has been justly im
peached for high crimes and misde
meanors, and properly pronounced
guilty thereof by the vote of thirty
five Senators.
Ninth The doctrine of Great Bri
tain nnd other European powers, that,
because a man is once a subject, he is
always so, must he resisted at every
hazard by tho United States as a relic
ot the lcudal tunes, not authorized by
tho law of nations, and at war with
our national honor nnd independence
Naturalized citizens are entitled to be
protected in nil their rights of citizen
ship, as though they were native-born,
and no citizen of tho United States,
native or naturalized, must be liable
to arrest and imprisonment by any
foreign power for nets done or worth
spoken in this country, and, if so
arrested and imprisoned, it is the duty
of the government to interfere in his
Tenth Of all who were faithful in
the trials of the late war, there were
none entitled to more especial honor
than the bravo soldiers and seamen
who endured thehanUliips of the cam-i
paign and the cruise, and imperiled
their lives in the service of the country.
The bounties and pensions provided
by law for these brave defenders of
the nation are Jobligations never to be
forgotten. The widows and orphans
of tho gallant dead are in the minds
of the people a sacred legacy bequeathed
to the nation's protecting care.
Eleventh Foreign emigration which
in the past has added so much to the
wealth, development of resources and
increase of power to this nation, should
bo fostered and encouraged by a liberal
