measures and charac ter of the National

ties, and to the gravity of theso issues,
?our thoughtful consideration is invoked,
u the present juncture it behooves the
ltepubliean party not t forget its origin,
nor its history. Ami 1 the difficulties
that beset it, ami the responsibilities and

so recon lire and complex, in an organi
zation ambraciiig so many men of larire
intelligence, trained to habits of inde
pendent thought, expression, and modes
of action, are inevitable. They are, in
deed, to be expected and desired, for
from such freedom of discussion, truth
is elicited and proper modes of action are
deduced. The men, therefore, who
stood so firmly while in a minority, amid
the denunciations, arrogance, and scorn
ot power; tne men who met. the stern
bill is an important financial measure,
which contemplates the saving of inter
ost upon the public debt by the exchange
of outstanding six per cent, bonds for
those of a lower rate of interest, to the
amount of S2o,"00,0) a year. While
a reduction of taxes transfers the bur
den of the. debt from one year to anoth
er, from one ccnoration to another, a re
duction in the rate of interest is an aet
uiil saving to the country, not only for
the nresent generation, but for all time.

ORIGIN OF THE PARTY.
Recurring to their origin. Republicans
will remember, when the land was the
theater of a stern and irrepressible con
flict between the demons of slavery and
caste and the spirit of liberty and
equality, when the slave power held great
interests and powerful organizations in
its grasp, and ruled the nation with im
perial sway, that the founders of the
party, instructed by passing events, with
convictions deepened and z.al quickened
by the teachings of history and of Holy
'Writ, and inspired by the deathless
words of the patriots, statesmen and he
roes of our earlier time, ro-e to the exi
genciesof tin hour, opposed the haughty
ambitions the maddening jci-sions, the
cruel prejudices and the disortrnaiziicr
itheories of the dominating majority, and,
although long overborne by nuiabursT
still fctrug-jUid on -am fd jeers, insults.
jnehtf, blows ami assassinations, till, un
Jer the lead of Abraham Lincoln, they
achieved success and grasped the scepter
fi political power.
THE SECOND ERA.
Entering upon its second era, appal
ling responsibilities at once arose. The
slave masters, in tne pride ami arrogance
of power, instantly plunjred the nation
into the fire and blood of civil war. Rut
the Republican party rose with the crisis.
It raised money in unstinted measure,
.organized vast armies, created powerful
navies, fought bloody battles, crushed
the most gigantic rebellion of all re
corded history, and saved the nation's
Jife. It was then, amid the clash o
arms, that the Republican party saw
that slavery was the relentless and un
;appeased foe of the country, was the in
spiration, the heart and soul of that
civil war, and that its death would be
,the annihilation of the rebellion, the
.unity of the Republic, and the develop
ment of free institutions. Against cow
ardly fears, selfish instincts, and unreas
oning passion? and prejudices it pro
nounced the doom of that hideous and
horrid system of human bondage, though
it was upheld by the aggregated inte
rests of three thousand million dollars,

WORK TO BE ACCOMPLISIIF.H.
Patriotism, principle, the continued
existence, reputation and renown of the
Republican party, and a duo sense of
selt-respect and pride of character de
mand that Republicans now, as in the
past, should have faith in their capacity
to carry forward to completion reforms
so auspiciously begun. It came into be
ing as an organization of reform and
progress, and should lie ever ready to
accept t he living issues ol t he hour and
march abreast with the spirit of the age.
Unaided it has fought t lie battles of re
form wit h constancy an 1 courage. Nor
in the work still before it can it hope for
aid from those who still chliS to thi tra
ditions of jhe past', pride thrm
eje!FC3 ort" their conservatism, and who,
during the conflicts of the past twenty
years, have resisted all reform, and
mourned over every effete, ; and hateful
abuse as it felL If there are Republi
cans who are weary of the ascendancy of
a party which h:is achieved sush crown
ing victories, who are tired of the re
sponsibilities of power, and would relin
quish it to other hands, they shoul ro
mcniber that there are none worthy to
accept it. Tor surely they cannot fail to
see that the Democratic party, by its
policy during its closing year:s of its
power, and by its blind and unrelenting
opposition to reformatory measures while
out. of power, even now, as if smitten by
judicial blinddess, refusing to accept the
Constitutional amendments as fixed and
final, has demonstrated its utter incapaci
ty for such a trust.
PRESIDENT GRANT'S ADMINISTRATION.
Accustomed to success even against
fearful odds, and underrating, perhaps,
the intrinsic dilficulties of the pending
issues, many Republicans looked to Gen.
Grant's administration with high raised
expectations. Of courso they have been
impatient, ami not always satisfied with
results. But while their expectations
have not been fully realized in the action
of either the President or of Congress,
much has been achieved, enough, at anv.
rate, to satisfy them that the ditlic i't I -rjir,,

The war ended, the rebellion subdued,
i-Ui bondmen emancipated, the Republi
can party entered upon the third era of;
its eventful history. Th-vigh eomjuered
b arms the rebels did not accept the
just, humane, and generous ideas of the
victors, nor did thv return to their
proper allegiance and ioyaity to the Gov
ernment, but still bemoaning the ''lost
cause," they remained unsubdued in
will and unrepentant in spirit and pur
pose. Though made free, tho bondmen
were homeless, without property, with
out employment, subject to the cruel
laws against free people of color, which
had always disgraced Southern legisla
tion, and in tho midst f a people exas
perated by defeat and maddened by
their loss of power still longer to hold
and oppress. Property was swept away,
industry disorganized, society disinte
grated, and States were without lawful

Ry the combined action of ihe President,
