The Xational Republican Conven
tion has bei'ii held, and its work well
done. It has given us a ticket worthy
of support, and certain of success.
General Grant is known of all men
and his good works speak forth his
praises. His grand success as a
great military leader and a wise
statesman is written on the pages of
his country's history. He has been
tested, tried and approved as a safe,
ruler and a good mau, and he cannot
fail of an eh'ction, despite all oppo
sition. Henry Wilson, of Massachusetts,
is almost as equally as well known
and esteemed by the nation at large,
as is Ulvsses S. Grant, and his
nomination is every where hailed with
intense satisfaction. He sprang from
the ranks of lowliest poverty, and by
bis unaided efforts has earned a name
and station second to that of no
stntesman in the nation. A true rep
resentative of lalor and home indus
try, and a Republican without blem
ish, be adds great strength to the
ticket on w hich he has been placed.
We print the following brief sketch
of his career, taken from th Pitts
Henrv Wilson was born at Farni
ington, X. IL. February IC, 1812.
His parents leing extremely poor, he
w as apprenticed at ten years of age
to a farmer in his native town, with
whom be continued eleven years,
during w hich iieriod he was seut to
school at irregular intervals, amount
ing in all to twelve months. He
early formed a taste for reading, and
from a private library in the neigh
lorhood borrowed and read on Sun
day and in the cveuing by firelight
and moonlight, in the course of his
apprenticeship, nearly one thousand
volumes, chiefly of history and biog
raphy. On attainfng bis majority be
quitted Farmington, and with all bis
possessions in 4 pack on bis back,
walked to Xatick Mass., where he
hired himself to a shoemaker until be
learned bis trade, at w hich he work
ed for two years, when, having accu
mulated some money, he returned to
New Hampshire and studied for a
w bile in the academies at Stafford,
WolMorougb and Concord. His
plan of education was cut short by
the insolvency of the person toVhom
be bad entrusted bis savings, and be
returned to Xatick and resumed work
as a shoemaker in 1838. Ia 1840 be
took an active part in the Presiden
tial canvass, and made upward of
sixty sjHH'cbes in favor of General
Harrison, the Whig candidate, in
the next five years be was three
times elected a representative from
Xatic to the Legislature, and twice
to the Senate from Middlesex county.
In the Legislature he was soon known
as an active and zealous opponent of
slavery, and in 1845 be was selected
in conjunction with the oet Wbitti
T, to t arry to Washington the great
anti-slavery jntition from Massachu
setts against the annexation of Tex
as. In the same year he introduced
in the Legislature a resolution de
claring the unalterable hostility of
Massachusetts to the further exten
sion and longer continuance of sla
very in America, and her fixed deter
mination to use all constitutional and
legal means forits extinction. He
supported this resolution iu a speech,
which was pronounced by the lead
ing anti-slavery journals to le the
fullest and most comprehensive on
the slavery question that bad yet
leen made in any legislative body in
the country, and Jjt w as adopted in
the House by uiuety-tbw majority.
He was delegate to the Whig Xation
al ConTcntion of 1848, and on the re
jection of anti-slavery rsoIutions by
the Convention, be withdrew from it
and took a prominent part iu organ
izing the free-soil party. II- pur
chased at this time the Boston Repub
lican, a daily newspaper, which be
edited for tw:o years. In 1849 be was
chosen chairman of the Free Soil
State Committee of Massachusetts, a
jKt which be actively filled for four
years. In 1850 and again in 1851
be was chosen a State Senator, and
during both terms was President of
the Senate. In 1852 1m wan made
President of the Free Soil Xational
Convention at Pittsburgh, and Chair
man of the Xational CommitUe of
the party. In the same year be was
the Free Soil candidate for Congress
in tlc Eighth district of Massachu
setts, wbero the majority against the
Free Soilcrs exceeded 7,500, and
failed of an flection by only ninety
three votes. He was elected to the
Xational Convention of 1853, not
only by his own town of Xatick, but
iiv the town or Ji rim. ami took a i
prominent part iu '.he deliberation uf i
that hodv. In the kame vear be vi
the Free Soil candidate for Governor,
and was defeated. In 1 8 "5 be wa
elected t succeed Edward Everett
iu the United States Senate, and
shortly after taking bis seat made a
riM'h advocating the repeal of the
fugitive slave law and the abolition of
slavery in the District of Columbia
and the territories. He has ever
since been conspicuous in the Senate
as an earnest advocate of anti-slavery
measure. For a brief period in
1855 be was associated with the
American party; but on the adop
tion of a pro-slavery platform by the

ed an immense circulation through
the free States. In January of the
same year the Massachusetts Legis
lature re-elected him to the Senate by
nearly a unanimous vote. On the as
sembling of the Senate in March,
18(J1, be w as made Chairman of the
Committee on Military Affairs, a post
which the civil war rendered one of
unprecedented labor and responsibil
ity. In this capacity he introduced
and carried through Congress, dur
ing the extra session of 18Cl,the acts
to authorize the employment of 500,-
000 volunteers, to increase the regu
lar army, to croriranize the mili
tary establishment, and various
others of nearly enual importance. It
was said by Gen. Scott that he did
more work in that abort session than
all the chairmen of the military com
mittees bad done for twenty years;
and in a published letter dated Janu
ary 27, 1862, Mr. Cameron, the Sec
retary of War, says of him: "No
man,' in my opinion, in the whole
country, has done more to aid the
War Department in preparing the
mighty army now under amis." In
the reirular session of 1801 "2, Mr.
Wilson introduced a bill abolishing
slavery in the District of Columbia,
and also the measure for abolishing
the "black code."
His career in the Senate during all
the subseoucnt years has added to
the wealth of the foregoing record,
and, take his indigent and obscure or
igin, his youthful energy and persist
ence in enriching his mind with use
ful knowledge, his untiring diligence,
his wonderful attainments, his signal
and rapid wocrress, his bold on the
public admiaation and confidence, bis
continued onward and upward w av
as a representative statesman. All
are but so many steps by which he
bar earned and reachad his present
distinction. Who will not say that
he has not well earned it? Who will
uuestion the wisdom of the Conven
tion in nominating him to the second
office in the nation, or that the voting
niasse will ratify and confirm the
choice in Xovember next ?
The Pittsburgh GazetU announces,
as w ill Ik seen by reference to its ar
ticle in another column, the deter
mination of Mr. Hugbart to retire
from the Presidency of the Pitts
burgh & Connellsville Railroad. We
had beard some time sinee of this
purposed retirement of Mr. Hlohabt,
but hoped that he might influenced to
change bis views.
By bis voluntary relinquishment of
the position, the road w ill sustain an
almost irreperable loss, and the bud-
dinreiitcrnnses aloner its line a se-
vere blow. His w as not the jiolicy
that wrings the last farthing from
local tonnage.cripples new enterprises
and frightens away capital by
its exactions. On the contrary, he
fostered every new source of trade
and traffic, lending it a helping hand,
and laboring to build up for it a re
munerative market, -well knowing
that increasing prosperity for it in
sured increased and remunerative
transportation over the line of his road,
and the present immense carrying
trade on the western division of the
line, testifies to his personal sagacitj'
and the wisdom of his policy. By
Ids withdrawal, the road will lose its
best, truest and most devoted friend;
and the citizens along the line will
miss and regret the ever genial, always
obliging, energetic and sympathetic
sharer of theii hopes and fast friend
of their interests. The labors and
sacrifices of Mr. Huohart in behalf
of this road are known throughout
the State, and his voluntary retire
ment at the moment when, through
his Herculean labors, it has lieeu
launched en a career of prosjcrity,
will strike the public, jiot ouly with
regret, but with surprise.
We accept his own declaration,that
impaired health has driven hirn to
this course, and the more regret his
loss, because suierii)duced by such a
cause. We have never known any
one occupying a similar position, so
confided in, so trusted and relied uj
on, so universally esteemed; and bis
successor, be be w hom he may, will
discover, that to fill, in public estima
tion, the position carved out and oc
cupied fir years by William Open

est, able man, w ho always labors for
the laboring man. I name Henry
Wilson, of Massachusetts.
Mr. Loring, of Massachusetts, se
conded the nomination of Mr. Wilson
in a few eloqent sentences, which re
cited his services and eulogized his
public and private character.
Mr. Ray.of Xew Hampshire, also se
eoned Mr. Wilson's nomination, be
cause be was a good and tried man, al
ways iu favor of the cople in every
Richard W. Tonipson, of Indiana,
was next received with great cheers.
In behalf of the entire Republican
party of Indiana, and by the unani
mous instructicu of its Convention, he
nominated Schuyler Colfax. Gerat
cheering. He did this with satisfac
tion, liecause it was a just reward for
dovoted public services. He is not
unknown to fame. Four years ago
the names of (Jrant and Colfax were
associated together. They were the
battle-cry which led to that great
triumph. They should not sepa
rated until we achieve another tri
umph, because the firm is not yet in
solvent, and the time not yet come in
which to divide its assets. He paid
a high compliment to Senator Wilson.
He and Colfax had both carved their
way to honor and distinction, but
Grant and Colfax, united iu one cry,
will again be the signal for victory.
Wm. A. Howard, of Michigan, se
conded the nomination of Colfax. He
said Michigan had first perfected a
Republican party organization, and
we still stand were w e stood then.
He proceeded with a graphic sketch
of Colfax's career from a printer's
boy to the scat of second officer in
this great government, and urged the
propriety of his renomination,
Mr, Lynch, colored, of Mississippi,
followed. It seemed to him as if tlie
spirit of Lincoln is here, and he re
membered what that patriot said on
one occasion that it was not a safe
time to swap horses. Applause.
He proceeded to urge the nomination
of Colfax. Loud cries of vote ! vote!
Gcrritt Smith urged the nomination
of Mr. Wilson.
Mr. Parker, of Xew Jersey, advo
cated Schuyler Colfax.
Mr, Quarles, colored, of Georgia,
favored Wilson, of Massachusetts.
Mr. Senor, of Virginia, nominated
John F. Lewis of that State.
A colored delegate from Texas sug
gested Gov. E. J. Davis, from that
Mr. Munn, of Tennessee, nominated
The nominations for Vice President
gave evidence at the outset that Mr.
Wilson would be chosen. Tje ap.
plause that grccied the presentation
or Schuyler Colfax's nime by Mr.
Thompson, of Indiana, came from
such parts of the hall as to show that
Mr. Wilson was uppermost
The chair announced that the Com
mittee on Resolutions was present,
and put the question whether the
Convention would now hear their re
port. He declared it carried. Mr.
Schofield, Chairman of the Committee
on Resolutions, annouccd that Gener
al Ha wly, Secretary of the Commit
tee, would read the resolutions. He
sii.l that the committee had but a
short time in which to consider so
large a umber of questions; so that
if the gentleman did not find in the
platform everything that they desired
he hoped they would rest assured
that it was not excluded from any in
disposition to take up and act upon all.
Gen. Hawley then read the platform.
The Republican party of the Uni
ted States, assembled in Xational Con
vention in the city of Philadelphia, on
the 5th and fith days of June, 1872,
again declares its faith, appeals to its
history and announces its position up
on questions before the country.
Fintt. During eleven years of Su-.
premaev it has accepted with grand
couragp thp d'it'o of tfip thqp,
it suppressed, a gigantic rebe.llioii,
emancipatod four millions of slave.,
decreed equal the citizenship of all,
and established universal suffrage.
In exhibition of unparalleled magna
nimity it criminally punished uo mau
for political offenses, and warmly wel
comed all who proved their loyalty
by obeying the laws and dealiug just
ly with their neighbors. It has stead
ily decreased with a firm hand the
resultant discords of war, and initiated
a wise policy towards the Indians.
The Pacific Railroad and similar vast
enterprises have been generally aided
and successfully conducted, the public
lauds freely given to actual settlers,
immigration protected and encouraged
and a full acknwludgcmanto of natur
alized eitizens' rights, secured from
European powers. A uniform nation
al currency has Wen provided, repu
diation frowned down, the national
credit sustained under the most ex
traordiany burdens, and new bonds
negotiated at lower rates. The reve
nues have Wen carefully collected and
honestly applied : despite the anuual
large reductions of the rates of taxa
tion, the public debt has been reduced
during Gen. Grant's presidency at tht
rate of one hundred million dollars a
year. , A great financial crisis has
lecn avoided, and peace and plenty
prevail throughout the land ; mena
cing foreign difficulties have lecn
peacefully and honorably compro
mised, and the honor and power of
the nation kept in high respect
! throughout the world. This glorious
j record of the past is the party's best
pledge for the future. We believe
i the people will not entrust the gov-
eminent to any party or combination
of men composed chiefly of those who
have resisted every step of this bene
Second. Complete lilierty and ex
act equality in the enjoyment of all
civil, political and public rights should
j lie established and effectually main
j tained throughout the Union by effi-
cient and appropriate State and Fed
I eral legislation. Xeither the law nor
its administration should admit of any
! discrimination in respect to citizens
by reason race, creed, color or previ
j ous condition of servitude.
I Third. The recent amendments to
the Xational Constitution should be
cordially sustained, because they are
right; not merely tolerated because
they are law, and should be carried
out aceordiufr to their fpirit bv appro
priate legislation, the enforcement of,
which can he safely trusted only to

EUjhth. We hold in undying hon
or the soldiers and sailors whose valor
saved the L'nion ; their pensions are
a sacred debt of the nation, and the
widows and orphans of those who
died for their country are entitled to
the care of a generous and grateful
people. We favor such additional
legislation as will extend the govern
ment to all our soldiers and sailors
who were honorbly discharged, and
who in the line of duty became disa
bled, without regard to length of sir
vice or cause of such discharge.
Ninth. The doctrine of Great
Britain and other Eurojiean powers
concerning allegiance once a sub
ject always a subject having at last
through the efforts of the Republican
party been abandoned and the Amer
ican idea of an individnal's right to
transfer his allegiance having been
accepted by European nations, it is
the duty of our government to guard
with jealous care the rights of ad
opted citizens against the assumption
of unauthorized claims by former gov
ernments, and we urge continual and
careful encouragement and protection
to voluntary immigration.
Tenth. Tho franking privilege
ought to bo abolished, and the way

which press for attention is that which
concerns the relations of capital and

the amplest field for capital, am:

the mutual prolits of these two great
servants of civilization.
Twelfth. We hold that Congress
and the President have only fulfilled
an imperative duty in their measures
for the suppression of violent and
treasonable organizations in certain
lately rebellious regions, and for the
protection of the ballott-box, and
therefore they are entitled to the
thanks of the nation,
Thirteenth. We denounce repudia
tion of the public debt in any form
or disguise as a national crime, wit-,
ness w ith pride the reduction of the
public debt and of the rates of inter
est upon the balance, and confidently
expect that our excellent currency
will lie perfected by th speedy res
umption of specie payment
Fourteenth. The Republican par
ty is mindful of its obligations to the
loyal women of America for their no
ble devotion to the cause of freedom.
Their admission to wider fields of
usefulness is received with satisfaction
and the honest demands of any class
of citizens for additional rights should
be treated with respectful considera
tion. Fifteenth. We heartily approve
the action of Congress in extending
amnesty to those lately in rebellion,
and rejoice in the grow th of jwaceand
national feeling throughout the land.
Sixteenth. The Republican party
propose to respect the rights reserved
by the people to themselves as care
fully as the powers delegated by them
to the State ami Federal Government
It disapproves of resort to unconsti

Eighteenth. We lelicvo that the
modest patriotism, the earnest pur
pose, sound judgment, practical wis
dom; incorruptible integrity and illus
trious services of L'lisses S. Grant
have commended him to the heart of
the American people, and w ith him
at our head wc start.to-day on a new
march to victory.
Mr. Burns then moved the ado

When the roll was called, the vote
stood 3C4J for Wilson, 321 j for Col

When the excitement had subsid

and Wilson as the nominees of the
The Convention then adjourned by
singing " Auld Lang Syne" and
amidst the playing of bands and fir

The Gentile delegation from Utah,

Convention to-day, instead of the
Mormon delegates, sustained their
application iu a strong pacr present

"We cannot see how the Xational
Republican Convention could recog
nize polygamy by the admission to
seats of Smith and Fuller, with self
stultification, without placing a pre

the loyal people of Utah, and outrag
ing sense of decency as well as that '
of the true Republicans of the entire

THE PHILADELPHIA CONVENTION.
All accounts-eoncur that the Con-
ventiou is an assemblage or the rep-!
intelligent and solid assemblage has
rarely gathered in the United States.
Considering that the nomination of
Grant was a foregone conclusion there
is very considerable enthusiasm man
ifested. The speech of Gerrett Smith was
not only effective in itself, butTemark
able as coming from a veteran iu the
abolition cause and one who had long
retired from partisan coufliets.

This morning while walking up the

ANOTHER PRESIDENTIAL CONVENTION.
The Free Trade men who lost the
control of the Cincinnati Convention
by the maneuvers of (iratz Brown and
the Greeley strikers are determined
not to submit to the swindle. It is un
derstood that another Convention
will tie called to meet at Cincinnati
on the fourth of J uly for tho purpose
of nominating candidates and present

Convention for its acceptance. Thus

Earnest efforts are being made
here by the friends of education to in
duce the territorial Legislature to es
tablish four additional primary
schools in which the new method ' of
objective teaching known as the Kin
dergarten system will bo introduced 1
There are in this city one hundred
and twenty-three private schools and
about one hundred and thirty public
schools. The existence of so" large a
number of schools notwithstanding the
fact that parents are taxed for the
support of the pnblie schools, is evi
dence that the latter are not conduct
ed as efficiently and successfully as
they ought to "be. . "
The Kindergarten method has made
great progress both in Germany and
in the United States. It has already
been adopted as part of the public
school system in Boston, and it is to
be hoped that it may yet lie intro
duced throughout the Union.
