A difficulty occurred on Tuesday
evening last a short distance form town

with a knife in the hands of the latter.
The parties had a short time previously
left town in a state of intoxication, and
while riding peacefully along the man

his pocket knife, seemingly without any
provication whatever, and inflicted sev
eral severe wounds in the region of the
heart and other prts of the body. An

An Innocent Man Hcno bt a Mb.
The Dubuque Times tells of aninocent
man being hung by a vigilance com
mittee on Monday last at Janesville,
Bremer county. It says: "In the Times
of yesterday there was an account
of the hanging of a supposed horse thief
by a mob, or self-styled vigilance . com
mittee, between Janesville and Waverly.
Fuller particulars have since transpired
in regard to the affair, which places it
in an entirely different light, and reveals
the horrible fact that an innocent man
has suffered death at the hands of the
mob. It seems that two young, men,
partially intoxicated, took the hoises and
rode them down to Cedar Falls, and after
they got there turned them loose. Mc
Roberts was arrested at Janesville, as
the supposed thief, and hung in a man
ner already related. When the farmer
got home found his animals there.' It is
also stated that Mc Roberts was hung by
the mob at ten o'clock in the evening,
and left hanging by the mob until twelve
o'clock the next day. Warrants are
bow out for the arrest of the rinslead
ers, and it is to be hoped that the parlies
concerned in the outrage will be brought
to justice. We understand that one cf
the chief leaders cf tbe mob is the de
puty sheriff of the county. It is certain
ly a sickening affair, an no doubt remain
that an innocent man has been hung."

Chicago, as Candidate for Piesident of
ihe United States. '
The following is General Grant's
reply to the nomination of . the Chicago
Convention : .
. Washington, May 29, 68, General
Joseph R; Hawley, President of the Na
tional Union Republican convention . In
formally accepting the nomination of the
National Union Republican Convention
of the 21st of May, inst.. it seems proper
that some statement of my views, bayuud
ihe mere acceptance of the nomination,
should be expressed. The proceedin
of the Convention were marked with wis
dom, moderation and patriotism and I be
lieve, express the feelings of the great
mass of those who sustained ihe country
through its trials. I endorse iheir reso
lutions, and if elected to the office of
President of the United States.it will be
my endeavor to administer all the laws
in good faith a:.d economy, and with the
view of giving peace, quiet and protec
tion everywhere. In tunes like ihe pres
ent, it is impossible, cr at least eminently
improper to lay down a policy to be ad
hered to right or wrung, through an ad
ministration. New political issues, not
foreseen, are constantly arising. The
i i i i it
views or ine puoiic on me old ones are
constantly changing and a pure! admin
istrative officer should always be left free
to execute tue will of ihe people. I al
ways have respected that will, and always
shall. Peace, and universal prosperity, its
sequence with economy of administration
will lighten-iha burden of taxation, wail-s
it constantly reduces the national debt,
Let us have paace.
With great respect, your obedient ser
vant. U. S. GRANT.
The following is the reply of Speaker
Colfax to the committee announcing hi
nomination by the Chicago Convention :
Washington, May 30. To Hon. J.
R. Hawley, President of the Nationa
Union Convention Dear Sir: The
platform adopted by the patriotic conven
lion over which you presided, and the
resolutions which so happily supplement
it, entirely agrees with ray views of a
just and national policy, and my thanks
are due to the delegates as much for
their clear and auspicious declaration of
principals as for th8 nomination with
which I gratefully accept. When a
great rebellion which imperiled the na
tional existence was at !a3t overthrown,
the duly devolving on those entrusted
with the responsibilities - of legislation
evidently was to require that the revolted
States sliould be readmitted to participa
lion in the government against which
they had errtd, only on such a basis as 10
increase and fortify, not-to weaken and
end.aji.ger the strength and power of the
nation. Certainly no one ought to have
claimed that they should be re-admitted
uaer such rule that their organization
as States could ever again be used, as at
the opening of the war, to defy the na
tional authority or to destroy the national
uniiy. lnis principle has been the poiar
star of those who have inflexibly insisted
on the Congressional policy your conven
tion so cordially endorsed. Biflled by
executive opposition and by persistent
refusal to accept any plan of reconstruc
tion proposed by Congress, justice and
public safety at last combined to teach us
ihat only by an enlargement of suffrage
in those States could the desired end be
attained, and that it was even more safe
to give the ballot to those who loved the
Union, than to those who had sought in
effectually to destroy it. The assured suc
cess of this legislation is being written on
the adamant of history, and, will be our
triumphant vindication, more clearly,
too, than ever before does ihe nation now
recognize that the greatest glory of a
Republic is that it throws the shield of
protection over the humblest and weakest
of its people, and vindicates the rights of
the poor and powerful. I rejoice, too, in
this connection, to find in your platform
the frank and fearless avowal, that nat
uralized citizens must be protected abroad
at every hazard, as though they werena
tve born. Our whole people are foreign
ers. Our fathers etablished by arms their
right to be called a nation. It remains
for us to establish the right, and welcome
to our shores all who are willing, by oath
of allegiance, to become American citi
zens. Perpetual allegiance, as claimed
abroad, is only another name for perpet
ual bondage, and would make all slaves
to the soil where first they saw the light.
Our cemeteries prove how faithfully
these oaths of fidelity to their adopted
land have been sealed in the life blood
of thousands upon thousands. Should we
not then be faithless to the dead if we
did not protect their living brethren in;
the full enjoyment ot that nationality forj
which, side by side wiih the native born.j
our soldiers of foreign birth laid down
their lives? It was fitting, too, that the i
representatives of a parly which had pro
ved so true to the national duty in time
of war, should speak so clearly in time of
peace for the maintenance untarnished of
the national honor, credit and good faith
as regards the debt, the cost of our na
tional existence. I do not need to extend
this reply by further comment; the plat-
form. which has elicited such hearty ap
proval throughout the land, the debt of
gratitude it acknowledged to the brave
men who saved the Union trom destruct
ion, the frank approval of amnesty based
on repentance and loyalty, the demand
for the most rigid economy and honesty
in the Government, the sympathy of the
party of liberty we here enjoy, and the
recognition of the sublime principles of
the Declaration of Independence are
worthy of organization on whose banners
ihey are to be written in tho coming
contest. I ts past record cannot be blot
ted out or forgotten. If there had been
no Republican, partyslavery would to
day cast its baleful shadow over ihe Re
public. If there hnd leen no Republoan
party, a free press and free speech would
be as unknown from the Potomac to the
Rio Grande a3 ten years ago. If the
Republican party could have been strick
en from existence when the banner of
rebellion was unfurled, and when the
response, "no coerticn," was heard at
the North, we would have had no nation
to-day. But for the Republican parly
daring to risk the odium of tax and draft
laws our flag could not have been kept
flying in the field until the long hoped
for victory came. , Without a Republican
party, the Civil Rights bill the guaran
ty of equality under the law to the hum
ble aud the defenceless as well as to the
strong, would not be to-day upon our na
tional statute book. With such inspira
tions from the past, and following, the
example of the founders of the Republic
who called their victorious General of
revolution to presids over the land his
triumphs had saved from its enemies, I
cannot doubt that our labors will be
crowned with success, and it will be a
success that shall bring restored hope.
confidence, prosperity and progress South
as well as North, West as well as East,
and above all the blessings under provi
deuce of national concord and peace.
