LOGICAL PROOFS OF
Conversion of tho Democratic Party
False Pretenses of the so-called
A careful perusal of current politi
cal literature furnished by the Liberal
Kepubliean and Democratic journals
must convince every candid reader that
they are attempting to practice a gigan
tic fraud on the people. We have
been inspired by tho belief thut there
is a marked difloreuco between the
Kepubliean and Democratic parties, a
difference of principles inducing a dif
ference in measures alluding the per
manent welfare of the nation. We havo
been honest in tho conviction that tho
principles and policy of the Republi
can party were sound nnd just and wise,
and have given our opponents credit
fur equal candor in tho expression of
me uenci mat tno adoption ot their
pcinciples and theory of government
wouiu nest promote the public welfare.
In the pending Presidential canvass
we witness a patent effort on tho part
of the enemies of tho Kepubliean par
ty to cover up or to obseuro these dis
tiuctions, and to convince the people
that there is no longer any practical
uuicrence oeiween tno two great par
ties, and consequently Republicans
can vote lor uemocrattc nominees, and
Democrats for Republican candidates,
without a sacrifice of either principle
or consistency ; that tho l'restacntial
race is only a contest between the
friends of two Republican Candi
dati-3 for the Chief Executive office.
It may be well to exnmino this hy
pothesis fur the purpose of testing its
All will admit that there ims at one
tune a marked diflbrenco between the
two parties ; a did'ercneo that was be
lieved to be fundamental. If there is
?iotu no such existing difference when
did it disappear? Not under the admin
istration ot James Ruchanan, Abra
ham Lincoln, or Andrew Johnsou. Dur
ing these twelve years tho party war-
iare was earnest, constant; nud some
tunes virulent. All leading measures
of Mr. Buchanan's administration
were sustained by tho Democracy and
deuouneed bv tho Republicans; all
tho leading metisures of Mr. Lincoln's
administration were sustained by Ike
Republican party and denounced by
the Democratic party; and after Mr.
Johnson s animation with the Democra
cy and his denunciation of a Republi
can congress, tno Democratic partv
sustained the views of the President
and the Republican party tho views
and measures adopted bv Contrress.
And for three years nnd more of t he
administration of President Grant the
political warfare was continued. In
lact, tins strile betwen the two great
parties was not abated in the country
up to the closing hours of the last
session of Congress. It is clear that
this party diflerence continued with
out abatement from the summer of
18o4 to tho summer of 1872, a period
of eighteen years. It was supposed to
grow out ot an honest diflerence of
opiuion on important nriuciolcs con
tiding legislation and administration.
Was this all a sham a mere pretense f
Were the leading statesmen of either
side only hypocrites of heroic proposi
tions? Rut if not, if they were candid
and honest in their professions, when
and how was this apparent radical dif
lerence between the two parties termi
nated? How did this conflict of prin
DID A CONVEliSION CF EITHER PARTY
OOCC'll AT CINCINNATI.
Did this difference disappear nt Cin
cinnati? And if so, in what way was
it manifested ? Certainly not by the
conversion of the Democratic- put ty at
that time and place, fur they had no
authorized representatives in that con
vention. And the Republican party
was not converted to the Democratic
faith at that time and place, for their
masses had no authorized representa
tives in attendance. It was composed
of a few hundred of self-appointed
gentlemen who had personal griev
ances to redress.
But admitting all that they claimed
for themselves, that they were reliable
representatives of the Republican par
ty, does uot relievo the advocates of
conversion from embarrassment, for
tho convention was called as a Repub
lican convention, for the purptso of
adopting a Republican platform, and
nominating Republican candidates for
President und Vice President. And
they still insist that they abandoned
not one iota of principle. And their
candidate for the Presidency still
clu'nns that ho is as much a Republi
can as he ever was; and his Liberal
Republican supporters all insist that
he is a Republican of the first water,
and exhort all Republicans to vote
for 'iim instead of General Grant, on
tho grouud that ho is a better Repub
lican than Grant. If, then, the prin
ciples which had previously divided
tho two parties wero not a myth, if
they had foundation in facts and a
real existence, and were not abandon
ed at Cincinnati, and havo not since
been abandoned by tho nominees und
their Liberal Republican supporters,
when and where and how did these
causes of political controversy disap
pear. WAS EITHER TARTY CONVERTED AT
THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CON
VENTION AT BALTIMORE?
Surely tho regular Republican par
ty was not converted to the Democrat
ic faith at the Democratic convention
at Baltimore. There was no author
ized representative of the Republicans
in that convention. And the Liberal
Republicans were not supposed to be
in attendance. If any conversion took
place at that time and place it must
have been a conversion of the Demo
WAS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY CONVERT
ED AT BALTIMORE?
This is an important inquiry. Did
"the representatives of three millions
of Democratic voters" abandon the
principles of their party and become
Republicans? If so, there is to-day
no Democratic party, and the reputed
"three millions of Democratic voters"
are bound by no party allegiance as
Democrats, and may honorably attach
themselves to the personal fortunes of
any political aspirant fur a notional
or local office. This is the attitude in
which they are placed by the former of
ilr. bumner s recent letters. He justi
fies his abandonment of the regular
Republican organization and his at
tachment to his new found -friends on
the grounds that the wholo Democratic
party has become Republican.
THE TESTIMONY OF OR EE LEY AMI THE
But Mr. Greeley, more sagacious
and tender to the feeling of his Demo
cratic allies, is careful not to shock
their sensibilities by a premature an
nouncement of their conversion.
When informed of his nomination by
the Baltimore Convention he told the
committee that brought him the wel
come tidings that he was "as much a
Republican ns he ever was," aud that
they "were, if possible, more Demo
cratic than before." The cheers which
greeted this announcement demonstrat
ed that these leaders of the Democrat
ic party and the official organ of their
national convention understood that
they had not surrendered might of
their political faith. We have the
supporting testimony of the recognized
standard-bearers of the Democratic
party throughout the country. Such
men as Senator Thurinan, "of Ohio,
Senator Hendricks, of Indiana, Sena
tor Buckalew, of Pennsylvania, Gov
Whyte, of Maryland," declare that
they have not abandoned eilher their
pnrty organization or its principles.
Thoy do not admit that their party is
cither dead or converted to Republi
canism. They, 0n the contrary, ex
cuse their support of Mr. Greeley on
the ground that he is the nominee of
their purty, whose commands they must
obey. The Democratic press is equally
tenacious in maintaining the identity
of tho party; and equally earnest in
exhortations addressed to the Demo
crtic masses for votes for the reason
that Mr. Greeley is tho Democratic
nominee. We witness also tho complete
organization of the Democratic party
in the several States where they sup
pose themselves to have a Democratic
majority they nominate straight Dem
ocratic tickets. And where they are
confessedly in tho minority they keep
up the party organization, aud only
uuito with the bolting Republicans for
a division ot spoils. With this array
of Democratic testimony no candid
man, with unclouded judgment, can
bel ieve that the Democratic party is
either dead or converted to Republi
canism. If it is in fact dead, to adopt
the pertinent language of auother, it
is a very lively corpse, and if convert
ed it is bo stupid as to bo uneoucious
of the miraculous renovation. We
have not yet heard from Democratic
lips the confession of tho converted,
"The tilings nhich wo once loved W6
now hate, aud the things which we
once hated wo now love."
THE COUNTER TESTIMONY OF LIBERAL
On the other hand wo have lioltinr
and discarded Republicans only testi
fying to the death or conversion of the
Democratic party. Mr. Sumner thinks
it has been converted because it agrees
with him in his one idea of opposition
to General Grant. With him this op
position has become a mania. His
hatred of tho President has so engross
ed his whole intellectual and moral
nature as to overshadow every other
consideration. Willi turn partv pnn-
iplo dwindles into insignificance in
tho heat of his rago agiiiust tho man
whom he cannot control. He is ap
parently laboring under tho hallucina
tion that the United States are not
large enough to hold two such nieu as
himself and tho President. Liko t lie
old Roman Senator, who camo to the
forum every day with the exclama
tion, "Cartluigo mut be destroyed,"
Sumner makes the welkin ring with his
diurnal wail fur the destruction of
J rant. Grant is his Moruecai, bittintr
at the palaeo gato refusing to do him
reverence. Like Hainan, ho has built a
gallows for his enemy fifty cubits nigh.
liiko Unman, who, being unable to
secure an edict against Murdecui, re
solved on a grander vengeance, involv
ing his destruction with the whole Jew
ish race. Sumner determines to de
stroy Grant by the destruction of tho
whole Republican party. In his cloud
ed mental vision lie is no longer able
to perceive any material difference be
tween the principles of the Democrat
ic party, and the party ho helped to
create, and professes himself willing
to turn over the guardianship of four
millions of frecdmen from the party
that liberated them to their old masters.
Seluirz, and Trumbull, and Fenton,
and four-fifths of their leading Liber
al Republican associates have person
sonal grievances to redress, and per
sonal ambitions to gratify, in the do
feat of Grant. To cover the odium
which attaches to deserters, they try
to persuade themselves that they have
not joined tho Democratic party, but
have converted it to Republicanism.
This gossamer veil is too flimsy to pi ci
ted them from the arrows which truth
draws from her ready quiver and hurls
at her presumptuous foes.
Mr. Greeley, in his carefully-prepared
letter of acceptance, flies to their
rescue with one his master-pieces of
impotent sophistry. Hear him on the
question of tho conversion of tho
Democratic party :
"But that your convention saw fit,
iu adopting tho Cincinnati ticket to
reaffirm tho Cincinnati platform, is
to me a source of the profoundest sat
isfaction. That body was constrained
to take this important step by no par
ty necessity, real or supposed. It
might have accepted the candidates
of tho Liberal Republicans upon
grounds entirely its own, or it might
have presented them (as the first Whig
National Convention did Harrison
nnd Tyler) without adopting any plat
form whatever. That it chose to plunt
itself deliberately, by a vote nearly
unanimous, upon the fullest and clear
est, enunciation of principles which
aro at once incontestably Republican
aud emphatically Democratic gives
trustworthy assurance that a new and
more auspicious era is dawning upon
our long-distracted country."
lie then congratulates himself on
his having lived until there is no par
ty in tho country in favor of the re-es-tablishmeul
of slavery, denounces the
Senate for failing to admit Zobulou B.
Vanoo to a scat as Senator from North
Carolina, and adds :
"Gentlemen, your platform, which
is also mine, assures 1110 that Democ
racy is not henceforth to stand for one
thing and Republicanism for another,
but those terms are to mean iu politics,
as they mean in tho dictionary, sub
stantially one and the same tiling
namely, equal rights, regardless of
creed, or clime, or color. I hail this
as a genuine new departure from out
worn feuds, and meaningless conten
tious in the direction of progress nnd
Mr. Greeley is careful not to ail
uotince tho abandonment of any of its
old tenets by tho Democratic party,
tho support of slavery excepted, or its
conversion to the Republican faith.
When stripped of snrpluesage ho as
serts only "that it chose to plant itself
deliberately, by a voto nearly unani
mous, upon the fullest and clearest
enunciation of principles which are at
once incontestably Republican nnd
eminently Democratic." Analyze
this assertion, weigh its words, and tell
us it air. Oreeley intends to assert
that the Democratic party had been
converted to tho Republican faith.
Does it not mean, when stripped of a
useless cloud of words, only that
the fi amers of the Cincinnati platform
carenuiy excluded lrum it nnv dccla
ration of principle on the points which
nerctotoro divided the two parties, nnd
confined themselves to an expression
of faith iu doctrines which both par
ties havo always heretofoie proclaimed,
with tho exception of tho question of
slavery, which they declared to bo a
dead issue. And his after statement
that the adoption of tho Cincinnati
platform by the Baltimore. Convention
"assures hi in 'that Democracy is not
henceforth to stand for one thing and
Republicanism ior another, but that
these terms are to mean in politics, as
they always have meant in the dic
tionary, substantially one and the
same thing, namely, equal rights, re
gardless of creed, or clime, or color,"
brings no support to those who insist
that the Democratic party has been
converted to Republicanism. Mr.
Greeley is not sufficiently heedless of
the truth to say that henceforth tho
Democratic party and tho Republican
party will advocate the same doctrines,
but asserts only that the "terms
Democrat and Depublican will hence
forth mean substantially tho same
thing on one puint, "namely, equal
rights, regardless of creed, or clime,
or color." In all tilings elso tho two
parties aro to dilllr hereafter as wide
ly as they havo hotctofure differed.
And even on this point of political
negro equality Mr. Greeley announces
no conversion of tho Democratic par
ty, but merely tho recognition by that
party of tin accomplished fact.
Tho Republican party has secured
tho abolition of slavery, and tho equal
right of all to vote, to testify, to sit
on juries, und to hold office, over tho
united opposition of tho Democratic
party North and South. Tho Repub
lican party has secured these rights by
the adoption of constitutional amend
ments, which can not now be revoked
without the concurrence of two-thirds
of both branches of Gorgrcss nod
three-fourths of all the States. The
rights of the colored population in
these respects are, therefore, secured
beyond the power of tho Democracy
to overturn them. And tho Democra
cy bind themselves, Mr. Greeley tells
us, to lot that stand settled which they
no longer have the power to overthrow.
But Mr. Greeley is not good enough
to mention one other point of agree
ment between the two parties where
there has been heretofore a difference.
He knows what we all ki.ow, that in
everything else the Democratic party
stands where it stood during the war
in hostile array against all the doc
trines of tho Republican party in
pronounced opposition to nil the laws
enacted by Congress for tho enforce
ment of this and each of her amend
ments of the Constitution within tho
Tho Democratic party admit that
these constitutional amendments, hav
ing been declared as adopted by the
States, must stand until repealed in a
constitutioual mode; but they insist
that it is tho province of the States,
and not of the United States, to en
force these constitutional provisions.
And hence the alacity with which
they adopted the Cincinnati platform,
whose fourth article reiterates the old
John C. Calhoun doctrine of State
Rights. And in this respect, which is
fundamental, Mr. Greeley and his Re
publican adherents have gone over to
the Democracy. They join the De
mocracy in declaring that the people
should rely on the several States for
protection of their rights w ithin each
State, and not on the National Govern
ment. And yet Mr. Greeley knows
that the rights of colored people to
vote, to hold office, to testify in the
courts, to sit ns jurymen, to bparorms,
and to attend free schools in a Demo
cratic Southern State, if unsuppoi ted
by tho National Government, would
not be worth the blank paper on which
the Cincinnati platform was printed.
A BARGAIN AND SALE, AND NOT A CON
VERSION. It is, therefore, clear that the whole
Greeley movement is a carefully-prepared
plan to swindle enough" Repub
licans out of their votes to secure the
triumph of the Democratic party.
Enough has become public to couvico
any honest inquirer after truth that
negotiations commenced between lead
ing Democrats and bolting, 'dissatis
fied Republicans ns far back as
autumn. The Democrats conceded
their inability to elect a straight Dem
ocratic candidate for President over the
Republican nominee. They had been
beaten in three straight races in suc
cession, in 18(10, 1804, and 13G8. Their
success required an accession of n half
a million of voters properly distribut
ed, incy hoped to secure this ndiii
tionnl s' vngth from tho Republican
party. y made terms with Repub
lican a.- ants for tho Presidency who
despaired ot a nomination by their
own party over General Grant.
TERMS OF THE SALE.
ihey agreed, ns now appears, to
give these ambitious Republicans the
candidates lor President und Vice
President, and, if successful, a fair
share ot the federal offices. And, on
t!io other hand, wero promised Repub
lican help to elect Democrats to State
ofhces.nnd to seats in tho House of Rep
resentatives ami tno united stales
Senaio. A platform was ngreed on
which would raise no issues between
the two parties to this coalition. Tho
nssault was to be commenced iu tho
Senate on I'rcnidcnt Grant by tho lie.
publican parties to this bargain. The
Democrats wero to preserve silence.
so us ui secure, ll pos.-,!Uie, a spilt ill
tho Republican masses. It was ex
pected that the press and local puliti
ciaus throughout tho country would
join in tho wrangle. The Cincinnati
Convention was accordingly called,
met, r.nd performed its part ot the
51R. (il'.r.EI.EY ADMITS THE JiARdAIN
Mr. Greeley, in his letter id' accept
ance ot the Democratic nomination,
apparently by inadvertenco admits
that thi-i coalition had been prear
ranged, tie says: " 1 hut many ol you
originally prekrred that the Liberal
Republicans should present another
candidate lor President, and would
have more readily united with us in
tho support of Adams or Trumbull,
Davis or Lrow u, is well known. How
could it bo well known that many
out of the number iiiuned, all profess
ed Republicans, if it had not "origi
nally been the subject ot conference.
He then adds ; "I owe my adoption at
Baltimore wholly to tho fact that I
had been already nominated at Cin
cinnati." He admits that ho did not
owe his nomination by tho Democracy
in any degrco to any other considera
tion, but "wholly" to his victory over
Adams mid Trumbull, Davis aud
Brown, iu the Liberal Convention.
Ho thus virtually concedes the exist
ence of tho contract, and concludes his
confession by this humiliating declara
tion : "Gratified as I am at your con
currence in tho l.iiicinnati mm. na

It has found it necessary, in order
to secure hnrmonious Democratic sup

of this disgraceful bargain. It asks

Our readers must agree with U3, we
think, that this attempted coalition of
the Democratic party nnd the Liberal
Republicans, instead of being a con
version of the Democracy in a body to
Republicanism, is a simple bargain
and sale, and nothing more. The Dem
ocratic leaders have agreed to bring to
tho support of Greeley and Brown
three millions of Democratic votes if
the leaders of the Liberal Republicans
will bring to tho 3tipport of the Dem
ocratic nominees iu the closely-contested
States, like. Pennsylvania, Indi
ana, and New York, enough Republi
can votes to secure tho election of the
Democratic State tickets, and the
needed help in closely contested con
gressional districts, so as to sccuro a
Democratic majority in tho House,
and augment their strength in tho
Senate. Ho who does not believe this,
as it appears to us, must be willfully
Now, whom do these sagacious man
agers expect to deceive by pretending
that there is no longer any Democrat
ic party; that it has been converted
in a body, and admitted to tho Repub

cratic leaders to keep iu the Demo
cratic harness. But they do expect to
deceive a few thousands of honest
Republican voters, and- make them
contribute to tho triumph of the Dem

for instance, Horace Greeley now
looks, his own words confront him and
put him to shame' In nn article pub
lished in tho New York Independent
a few weeks before the October elec
tions of 18ti8, ho called attention to
some of the dangers against which the
Republican party ought to guard.
Among these, wero tho counterfeiting
of naturalization papers by the Demo
cratic managers, the naturalization of
persons not yet entitled to citizenship,
and tho polling of illegal votes.
Speaking of Pennsylvania, he said :
" Wo wero heavily cheated thero
last October ; wo are likely to bo
worse cheated now. Her election laws
tiro tolerably good ; but tho judges in
strong Democratic districts set them
at defiance, taking all tho votes that
aro offered especially ull tho bad
ones. They will cheat "Us nt least ten.

them still, if every Republican vote is
nulled. But will they bo? Will Al

0,000, nnd others iu proportion ? Will
Berks, Northampton, Monroe, Colum

" Now let us suppose that tho ene

Shall wo not seo the very men who
now shirk effort on tho plea that Grant
cannot be beaten, lying down in inac

ready beaten and cannot possibly bo
elected? How swift will bo their
transition from blind presumption to
cowardly despair ?"
J.very syllablo of this stirriujr ad
monition is exactly applicable to tho
circumstances and conditions of tho
present struggle. It is as true of the
situation to-day as in the hour in
which it was written. The Democratic
managers havo now, as they had then,
a regular manufactory of counterfeit
naturalization papers at work. In tho
Democratic strongholds of tho State
