abstemiouS , frUgal, ~ and , unostenta

been soidolizeilfor Valor ntid success in
the field without being puffed up and
spoiled. 'Phis, lone, marks him as a

. He is one of the
very few public en who have passed
through the temptOtio»s of metropeli
tan life unscathed. i:s\ he mass of float
ing scandal which con. Mutes the su
perfices of 'life in Washin ton, we nev
er heard aught which affechid Schuyler
Colfax. He has borne for may years,
among men of all parties, the e 'viable
repute of a pure and fair-minded, igh
toned ChriStian gentleman. It iTs
never been necessary for bitn to stoop
to employ the questionable arts of the
politician to maintain his position in
public life, since he has from the first
been the choice of the Republicans of his
District. Our faith in him is so great that
we do not believe it . pbssible to corrupt
him. As the presiding officer of the
House for six years he enjoys the envia
ble reputation of having discharged the
dfficult and delicate duties of the posi
tion with such impartialitias to elicit
the unqualified praise gall parties.—
Like Gen. Grant he is abstemious, fru-
gal and unostentatious. A man whom
often preferment has not spoiled. '
- The Chicago Convention has done,
wisely and well in presenting these
k en for the suffrage of the people.
And we predict that the people will
show their appreciation of the wisdom
of the. Convention by endorsing the
nomination by an overwhelming ma
jority next November.
—This through and by virtue of vigi
lance, and unceasing labor. For the
victory cannot be won by the prestige
of our candidates. Republicans, or
ganization is our first duty; and we
shall soon know who are and who are
not in earnest, by the alacrity with
which active Republicans take up and
carry on the work.
We i by no means give up the coni c- tion of Andrew Johnson, though he is
acquitted on the 11th Article. The
charges in that Article are, that An
drew Johnson did, on a' certain occas
ion, declare Qougress to be a fragmen
tary body, thereby intending to deny
the validity of its laws; that ho at
tempted to prevent Secretary Stanton
from discharging the duties of the War
Office, in contempt of the Senate which
had reinstated him ; that Mr. Johnson
attempted to defeat the execution of
the apOropriation bill of 1867, and the
act for the more efficient government
of the rebel States. And upon these
charges the Senate, by a majority of
one, acquitted the President.
There are ten remaining Articles of
Impeachment, and the guilt of the
President of the charges therein pre
ferred is, on two or three eounts,-Unde-
Med. Unwilling to believe that the
Senate will stultify itself, and reqlse to
stand between the people and an usurp,
er, we shall light andiall back, if nec

The National Republican Party. of

al Convention in the City of ChiCago ' on,
the 20th day. f May, 1868,, do make the
following declaration of • principles: ,
,l. We congratulate the country on
the assured sticeess,of the RecOnstruc-
Ition policy . of Congress, as evinced- by
the Eidoption,: in •the majority of . the
States lately in„rebellion, of ~Constitiit
ions securing 6:N41;0101 and •political

was ,dernanded by every, , consideration
ofpublic . safety, of gratitude, end of
justice, and must be maintained ; . while
the question of suffrage in , all, the loyal
Stateslproperlyhelongs to thp people of
,those States.. , [Cheers.]
3., We denounce all forms of repUdia
tion„as a national crime [prolonged
cheers; ] and the national honor requires
the payment of the public indebtedness
in the uttermost good faith to all credi
,itors at home , and abroad, not • only , ac
cording to , the letter but the spirit' of
the laws under which it was contracted.
, 4. It is due to the, labor of ;the nation
that taxation should be equalized, and
reduced as rapidly as the natione:faith
; will permit. • • • '. •
5. The Natiqual debt contrasted, as it
has been, for I the preservation of the
Union 'for all time to come, .should be
extended over a fair period for redemp
tion;, and it is the duty of Congress to
reduce the rate -of interest thereon,
whenever it can be, honestly done.
6. That thp best policy td diminish
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 continue to pay,
so long as repudiation, partial or ~total,
'open or covert, is threatened or suspect
ed. .
7. The government ,of the United
•States should be administered with the'
strictest economy, and-the corruptions
which have been so shamefully .nursed
andlostered by Andrew Johnson Call
loudly for radical reform.
8. 'We profoundly deplore the un
tiniely and tragic death of Abraham
Lincoln., and regret the accession, of.
Andrew Johnson to the Presidency,
who has acted treacherously to the peo
ple who, elected nim, and the •cause he
was pledged to support ; who has warp
ed high legislative anil .judicial func
tions ; who has used his high office to
induce other officers to ignore and .vio r !
late the laws ; who hal' employed big
executive powers to render insecure the
propeity, the peace, liberty and life• of
the citizen ; who. has abused the pard
oning power • who has denounced the
National Ledisleture,as unconstitution
al ; who has persistently and corruptly
resisted, by every measure in his pow
er, every proper attempt at- the ,recon
struction or the States lately in rebell
ion'; who has perverted the public pat
ronage into an engine of Wholesale:eor
ineanors, and properly pronounced gull
tY-thereof by the vote of 35 Senators.
f) The doctrine of Great Britain and
other Etlropean powers, that because a
man is once a subject he is always so,
'must be resisted at every hazard by the
United States r as a relic of the feudal
times; not authorized by the law of na
tions„ and at war with our national
honor and independence. Naturalized
citizens are entitled to be protected in
all their rights of citizenship as though
they were native born, and -no citizen
of the United States, native or natural
ized, must be liable to arrest and im
prisonment by any foreign power for
acts done or words spoken In this coun
try ; and if so arrested and imprisoned,
it is the duty of the Government to lin=
terfere in his behalf. .
