In placing at tho head of our columns
tho narao of thla tlUtlnculshutl contlo-
man as tho canulilato for Governor, wo
not only do what la oxpoctcd of us as
members of tho party which niacin!
him In nomination, but at tho satno
tlrao Rlvo oppression to tho most heart
fult satisfaction personally at tho result.
Tho selection) of Mr. Buckalow was
tho spontaneous and unsolicited action
of tho Boverelgn people. -From all parts
of. tho Commonwealth came lift ado-
mmid on tho convention nssemblcd at
lU-mllnir for a nomination vlilcli should
Klvouhopo Hrtd curnejtof reform In
ovury branch of tho government at
Hnrrlsburg; that should securo capacl
ty, honesty, and Indopondonco In the
administration; that should Ignoro
rings ana corporations as engines of po
litical power and dlspensors of political
patronagf, and rcstoro to tho pooplo of
mo Biuto tno respect, consideration and
protection they had and onjoyed In
inwo nays or political purity when SI
moii tfnyUer and Francis It, Shank lion-ot-d
tho olllco of Chtof Executive oftlio
The nomination was conspicuous by
tho absence of all tho usual appliances
and concomitants of such an event.
Not even Ida own county was Instruct
CHl .'orhlm, and but ono county In tho
State, wo bellove, had taken that pre
caution ; and yet when his namo was
mentioned lu convention tho Instanta
noous outburst of enthusiasm showed
tho beat of tho popular heart. From
tho beginning of tho balloting to tho
end or it thoro was a steady and lncreas
ing advance la tho number of his sup
porters till, on tho magic soventh, the
triumph, was complete.
Scarcely two weeks had gono by since
Mr. Buckalow had consented to permit
his namo to be mentioned in connection
with tho offlco of Governor ; but twen
ty years of a stainless public lira had
convinced tho peopio that ho was tho
man, perhaps tho only man, who could
and would stem tho torrent of corrup
tion which has-so long disgraced tho
State; and his competitors gracefully
gavo way beforo tho resistless will of
the people who, irrespective of provi
ous party ties, havo overywhoro spon
taneously announced their dctcrmlna-
lion to givo him their support.
Mr. Buckalow has never been a vlo-
lent partlzan. It Is not in his naturo to
be so. Though no man holds his opln
ions more tenaciously or upon a surer
foundation of argument and reaion, he
always treats an opponent with respect
and his oplniona with consideration.
The qualities of his bead and his heart
draw to him Irresistibly tho support of
all honest and moderate men overy-
Ho la a lawyer of distinguished ablli
ty, a public speaker of great power and
persuasiveness, a statesman of large
experience, a politician of clean hands,
of, pure heart, of uncorrupt mind, of an
ago when the firo of youth has been
tempered by observation and study,
and will make a Governor of whom
tho State may be proud, and in whom
tho peopio can have tho most unlimited
Sumner on Grant.
Ono of tho greatest political aensatlons
of the day, overtopping In interest oven
tho Philadelphia Convention, la tho re
cent masterly speech of Senator Sumner
reviewing Grant's political career, and
In which he os3erta that Grant Is moro
deserving of Impeachmentthan Andrew
Johnson. It cannotbosald that Sumner
Is a Democrat; ho is now and has al
ways been our bitterest apponont, and
his testimony Is that of a Badlcal wit
ness. Even Fornoy, who ha3 at last resolv
ed to support Grant (but declines to aid
Hartraoft) in commenting on his speech
alludes to him as "the great Senator
who never does anything in haste"
and as "my dear friend Sumner." He
"It would be folly to deny that hla
philippic is fierce and able. It would bo
weak to refuse to accept it as a bold and
dangerous demonstration. As such 1
propose to discuss It. Tho readers of
The Press havo not failed to notice
that I have nover concealed my attach
ment to Charles Sumner. I know him so
well, and havo known him solong.and I
confide so entirely in hl3 personal integ
rity, and so honor his acquirements and
his patriotism, that I could not help re-
Seated efforts to establish good relations
etweon him and President Grant. I
have ne vor conecalc 1 my belief that his
degradation from tho chairmanship of
the Sonato Commlttco. of Foreign Rela
tions was a mlstike, deoply aggravated
by It subsequent organization, and by
tho removal of Mr. Motley. He con
structed and led a great party, and
hung to his convictions with tho tena
city of a Cromwell, cantlvatlncr tho Son
ato and tho country, and extorting, by
nn tremenuous aDiuiies, tno warmest
praise from his sternest foes."
Ho knew Grant, becauso ho helped
mako him and, liko a prudent parent,
is no w chastising a bad child. Nor can it
bo said that Sumner Is a disappointed
offlco Becker. Ho is an Intense radical,
and represented an intensely radical
state, long beforo Orant voted for
Buchanan, or declared that "if tho war
was to bo for the liberation of tho nig
gera ho would re3ign." If Sumner,
Greely, Fenton, Schurz, Trumbull, and
McCIuro are not Republicans, both par
ties are vory much deceived.
It will now moro than over bo tho
duty of tho Democrats at Baltlmoro to
nomlnato a man of such ability and
statesmanship, as to throw in deop
contrast tho man whom his own party
chargo with nopotlsm, corruption, and
Tho contrast wa3 mado at Heading
and tho result will be tho Inevitable do
feat of tho Treasury Ring at Harrisburg,
whoso fostering corruption Is so noto
rious that It ia not oven denlod.
Gen. O. O. JJoward, of Freedman's
Bureau notoriety was recontly sent by
tho Government to pacify tho Apache
Indians. On hla arrival in Arizona he
requested Gen. Crook to temporarily
suapendlloatlle operations against these
Indiana until ho had an opportunity to
tost the efllcacy of moral suasion. Ho
now withdraws hla previous request for
a suspension of tho campaign, and ad
vises vigorous measures at onco to pun

The peopio of tliis Stato havo deter

tho present year, and that, so far as it
is necessary to meet tho exigencies of
tho times i)yiuuuamcntaicnani;c3, thoso
changes shall bo secured. But wo know
that something moro man tins is neces
sary; that constitutioual provisions
must bo uoneral and vacuo in character
at least to a certain extent, and that for
tho application and enforcement of
sound principles of government wo
must havo reliable men in public olllco
An old political motto and a favorite
one, which you havo often heard, is
this, "Principles and not mon." I bo
llovo tho Latin equivalent for this ex
pression was placed by Mr. Madison
upon his carriage, so that ho should be
contsantiy reminded of tho truth which
was supposed to bo contained in it.
Well now, gentlemen, I think under
tho experienco wo havo had lu rccout
times wo should amend this motto : wo
should say now, "Principles, and men
to support thoui." Look to your Gov
ernment in tho Stato, look to your Gov
ernment at Washington, and is it not
manifest that although good pnnclpk j
aro written in your fundamental laws.
and although tho peopio aro overywhoro
desirous that thoy shall bo applied, yot
thero is laiiuro becauso tno agents lor

twiiu appiauao.j auow mo ono addi
tional remark in this connection. Thero
has been too much disposition lu our
great Commonwealth among hor public
mon to pusn personal nviury a iituo too
far a littlo bayond tho limit of what
was becoming or oxpedlout.
Tlio result has been that our Stato hf.s
boon comparatively dwarfed In this
great Union of ours. Other States havo
been raoio potontial In tho Federal Gov
ernment, and havo had moro Inlluouco
upon Its action. Now York, Vlrglula,
and other Statos, although no moro
patriotic, no moro dosorvlng, have had
a little moro emlnoiico and distinction
lu tho Fcdoral Union than our nobio
and magnificent Stulo. It hasbeeu our
own fault, und tliorcmodyls In our own
hands. Let gontiemen In our Stato who
aro favorod with publlo approval, who
aro placed lu public station, lot thorn
cultlvato magnanimity and good will
with each other, and whon ability rises
In our Stato lot us cherish and encour
ago It. Whon u man appoata to rlso a
