OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
ECHOES FROM THE PISE TBT5E STATE HOW
THE XKWS WAS RECEIVED AND IS REGARD
ED IN WASHINGTON THE POLITICAL
C05CKDSUU OF THE NINETEENTH
' fENTURY -MORTIFICATION AUONO
THE MEMBER3 OF PRESIDENT
' SATES CHURCH GRANT TO
VISIT " WASHINGTON.
Washington, D. C, Sept.18, 1880.
Whatever it may turn out to be, the
mult of the election in Maine is a disap
pointment all round. A disappointment
to the Republicans because they had ex
pected a victory, and an agreeable disap
pointment to the Democrats because they
had conceded defect. It goes to show
that the judgement cf th v. isc-'.t politics;
leaders is not always infllibiv because
the calculations of tita shrewdest pur.
gr have been blowa to the foar via is.
The result demonstrates that, pekuca!
leaders have miscalciilated tho politic.!
atmosphere. Two wssks ago the r,aiionai
democratic committee give up the Sght
in Maine and stopped sending speakers
into the state. Now, in the light of
events this is explained by the apologists
that they were conducting a still hunt,
ana bad copes ail along or success. Une
very clever theory of the deeat is that
it will wake Senator Conkling up. He
has long had a personal grudge against
Senator Elaine, and now that the latter
has lost his own state, Conkling will be
especially solicitous to carry New York
for the Republicans, this to serve notice
on the Maine Senator, that after alltthe
Presidency can be carried without the
Pine Tree State. At the Interior and
Post OInce Departments, there is consid
erable gloom. But little public business
Las been transacted during the last three
days, most of the clerks being engaged
in discussing the political situation and
the prospec'.s of tne future. One strange
feature of the situation is that neither
Democrats nor Republicans can make
any satisfactory explanation as to what
contributed to sueh an unexpected result.
One thing is sure, that from this time on
(till the 2nd of November we shall have
nothing else but politics politics in the
morning with our breakfast, politics in
our business, at our luncheons, politics
at our dinners, and we shall no doubt
take politics to bed with U3. And then,
when 'tis done, will it be done? or will
it hang on all winter long, as it did in
'76, and nobody bo sure of anything 1
Whatever is the result let us pray that
it will bs eo decisive that no electoral
cemmissions will be necessary. Let us
have at least one quiet winter so that we
may know exactly what the harvest will
Ve in the spring trade, harvests don't
generally coiub in the spring, but politi
cal harvests come in the spring every
four years whether or no.
Some of the friends of the President,
who belong to the same church, are quite
scandalized over his proceedings during
his present term. Tl ey say that during
the President's stay in Washington he
conducts himself with the utmost propri
ety, permitting no beverage stronger thaa
Appolinaries to be placed on the White
JTouse table, conducting regularly Sab
bath evening prayer meetings at the Ex
ecutive Mansion, absenting himself from
balls and receptions, and invariably re
fusing the offers of private boxes at the
theatres, which were sc promptly accept
ed by Gen. Grant. As in n arked con
trast with this they point tu t; action
of the President ir. parricip v, :r;c: while
)n Salt lake City, i.i Svn.hy it? vit'.es
with the ungodly Mcrmcna, ;n h;:' oc-u-pying
a box at a theatre u tLe
eitv of San Francisco in full view of Li.-. !
whole audience, and rao.-t culpable of ail,
in his going to a dancing reception in
Monterey,' although, as we are informed
by the telegram, he did not dance him
self. If the President continues to fall
from grace in this style, it is not unlikelv
that he may be "disciplined."
Gen. Grant is soon to be in Washing
ton. He has promised his old friend
Ned Beale that he will be here by the
first of next month and stay a fortnight.
If only Itafe Ingalls and General Sher
man were here, what a good time they '
would have Grant is more familiar
with five Generals that I can name than
with anybody else in the world. Here
they are: General Beale, General Sher
man, General Ingalls, General Van Vleit
and General Macfeely. He uncorks
himself with them as it were and gets
over all his reticence. He feels free and
easy and at home. With them he will
play Boston all night long.

ADOPTED BT THE CINCINNATI CONVENTION.
The Democratic party of the United States
in convention assembled, declare:
Ffrst We pledge ourselves anew to t!e
constitutional doctrines and traditions of the
Democratic party as illustrated by the teach
ing and examples of a long line of Democrat
ic statesmen and patriots, and embodied
in the last national cenvention of the party.
Second Opposition to centralization and
that dangerous spirit of encroachment which
tends to consolidate the powers of all the de
partments in one, and thus to create, what
ever be the forms of government, a real dep-
otisni; no sumptuary laws; separation of
church and .State for the good of each; com
mon schools to be fostered aud protected.
Third Home rule, honest iuone3 th
strict maintenance of public faith, consisting
I gold, silver and paper convertible to coin
on demnnd; the strict maintenance of the
public faith, State aud national, and a tariff
i r revenue only.
Fourth tbe subordination of the military
to tho civil power, a:sd a general and thor
ough reforu. ot the civil service.
Fifth Eight to a free ballot as the right
preservative of ail rights, and must and shall
be maintained ia every part of the United
Sixth The existing ailnunistraton is repre
sentative ot conspiracy only, and its claims
of right to surround the ballot boxes with
troops and deputy marshals, to intimidate
and obstruct the elections, and by unprece
dented use of the vote to maintain its cor
rupt and despotic power, insults the people,
and imperils their institutions.
Seventh The groat fraud of 1876, by
which, upon a false count of the electoral
vote of two States, the candidate defeated at
the polls, was declared to be President, and
for the first time in American history, the
viJ of the people was set aside under the
threat of military violence, struck a deadly
blow at out system of representative govern
ment. The Democratic party, to preserve
the country from tho horrors of a civil war,
submitted for the time, ia the firm and pat
riotic faith that the people would punish this
crime in 18S0. This issue precedes and
dwarfs every other. It imposes more sacred
duty upon the people of the Union than was
ever addressed to the conscience of a nation
Eighth We execrate the course of thisad
ministration in making places for political
criminals, and demand a reform by statute
which shall make it forever impossible for a
defeated candidate to bribe his way to the
seat i;f a usurper by villainies upon the peo
ple. Ninth The resolution of Samuel J. Tilden
not again to be a candidate for election, the
exalted place to which he was elected by a
majority of hfs countrymen, and from which
he was excluded by the leaders cf the Re:
publican party, is received by th? Democrats
of the United States with sensibility, and
they declare their confidence in his wisdom
and patriotism and integrity, unsullied by
the assault of the common enemy, and they
further declare to him that'he is followed
into the retirement he has chosen for himself
by the sympathyand respect of his fellow-citizens,
who regard him as one who, .by ele
vating the standard of public morality and
adorning and purifying the public service,
merits the lasting gratitude of his conutry
and his party.
Tenth Free ships aud a living chance for
American commerce on the sea and on tbe
land, no discrimination in favor of transpor
tation lines, corporations or monopolies,
Eleventh Amendment of the Burlingame
Treaty; no more Chinese immigration excep
for travel, education and foreign commerce,
and therein carefully guarded.
TwelfthPublic money and public credit
for public purposes solely, and public lands
for actual settlers,
Thirteenth Tho Democratic party is the
fri- nd of labor and tho laboring man, and
pledges itself to protect him alike against
the cormorants and the commune.
Fourteenth We congratulate the country
upon the honesty and drift of th Democrat
ic Congress whiuh has reduced the public ex
r nditures to 840.000.000 a yeafj upon the
roitinuatioD of iTufperity at home and the
a- -lonor airmail, and above all, unnn
pr -i: of such a chonge in the adminis
tration ci tl.is government as shall insure its
genuine. : s.ing reform in every department of
the public service.
