Tntiivkliiiilitv is a trait in human
development which all admire ; but
when that individuality is united
with sterling integrity in the same
person, the feeling of "admiration en-
larges into profound respect. De
cision being a necessary concomi
tant of individuality, the conclusions
of such an individual, if based upon
rectitude, become as strong to him
as proof of Holy Writ, and plant
ing himself upon them, lie awaits
their issue with confidence. Tn fact,
the opinious of such a man are the
torces which inspire his aims, and
then guide and control his actions.
The, too, he is positive as
well as conscientious. Conclusions
once formed become bedrocks iu his
mental and moral constitution.
Henceforward they become an
essential part of his character. The
knowledge that the opinions of an
individual of this character often
conflict with our own, docs not di
minish our respect. We honor them
because we believe them to be sin
cere ; we respect them because con
sistency marks their course. We
know where to place a person of
this stamp. If against us they are
against us ; if tor us they can surely
be relied npon. Conservatism, to
them, is moral cowardice ; and a
double-minded man, or time-server,
or demagogue, is a disgrace to his
species. Our country has furnished
many noble specimens of individu
ality of the type which we have en
deavored to indicate. Many such
are now living. They are found in
all of the pursuits. In politics, we
think President (.'rant is as fine a
specimen as can bo named . He is a
dear typo. He stands outdistinctive
ly as U. S. Grant. No other name
conveys a stronger idea of individ
uality than that. Unassuming,
terse, honest, firm. Slow, possibly,
but mire. A decision once reached,
no further proof is available. The
matter is then forever settled. He
is then ready to act. No sensible
man can sincerely doubt President
Grant's sincerity or his integrity
those are ascliaracteristic of him as is
reticence neither can be doubt his
unswerving determination to carry
cot bis convictions. Look at his
military life. Read his messages.
No parallel to the former docs the
world's history furnish, and the lat
ter, in tlicir comprehensive terseness
and clearness, are unsurpassed. In
deed, tho State papers of Gen. Grant
are as clearly marked by distinctive
ness as can well be conceived.
Grant's chief greatness, however,
consists in his fixedness of faith and
corresponding fearlessness of prac
tice. Unlike Gree'ey, lie is not car
ried away by every wind of doc
trine, lie is reliable. Strong, dis
tinctive, manly, virtuous traits of
character render him worthy of the
trust and confidence of his fellow
Governor Palmer, ot Illinois, in
a speech not long since, said that
Democrats must vote for Horace
Greeley. "We won't!" shouted a
voice from the crowd. "Very well,
then," said the Governor, as a
clincher, "vote for Grant." "We
will," shouted the crowd, with won
About six out of the fifty Dem
ocxatic papers in Ohio are in favor
ot a straight-out Democratic ticket.
Theodore Tilton says that Gree
ley wears his clothes, like his prin
ciples, without distinction of color.

place to adjust all such matters.
Elect the right kind of men to of

be secured. The people should ex.

lead to anarchy and destruction.
