GREELEY IN LI?lt 01,.
On the 26th there was a Greeley meet
ing at Lincoln. Tipton, Mason, Doctor

Statesman calls it a large and entbuastic
meeting and the Journal, a respectable
turn out. We leave Piattsmouth to
judge for themselves, knowing the men
and the papers.
TIIE PARTY OF TIIE RIGHT
Tbe Party that have Left.
Loooking over a French telegram, the
other day. we noticed a beading "Tbe
party on the right, to the party on the
left." With the transposition of one
word it may well apply to the state of
our political world at present.
We have no partisan faction known as
the party of the right, nor yet one of
the left ; bat we have had a grand old
party that the people have very heartily
endorsed as the party in the right, and
a portion of that party, many of them
the loudest mouthed and most emphatic
in upholding this party's measures just
so long as they were run and managed
by their friends, have now become the
party of the left. Left, in more senses
than one. They have left a time hon
ored and hitherto faithful record behind
them; they have left the principles of
honor and truth in the rear and plunging
into a mad personal warfare on men
they have left the right way far, far be.
hind them, and earned the contempt and
scorn of their neighbors on the right.
Some of these left ones must blot out
hole years of their lives, whale pages
if their writings and teachings, and
iheir very every day walk and conversa
tion for some years, before they can
nake their friends on the right believe
(hat they are honest and sincere in their
nove to thp left. Left; It is a Fad
.-ord in English. It di-notcs an inferior
po-H-):; a turning towards the by-ways
i iife, rather than to the broad high
vays of position and fame.
"Keep to the right, boys," has be
come a proverb in our language how
then will this party of the left reconcile
their course now with their teachings,
foldings, even threats of former years?
Surely they are of the left now, and have
not "kept to the right" in this move;
It has another meaning to stop, to fal.
behind, to stay there ; all this it means
to be left and next November, unless
ths signs of the times go sadly awry,
this party of the left will be also the
party that is left.
MR. TIPTON'S SPEECH.
The gentleman who spoke last Thuisd y
has become famous on the page of lut
ter-day history, by his opposition to the
present administration, and his persist
ent efforts to disrupt the party th .t he
claims to have helped first see daylight
and strength, and which certainly made
him ail that he. is of a public man.
The Senator in some private remarks
very pleasantly said he supposed we
would have to ahuse him a little. We
hare to do no such thing ; on the con
trary, we shall eay some very good things
First and foremost his speech was not
& tirade of abuse. It was argumenta
tive rather than passionate, and strange
tt say, we heard very little, compara
tively, of either Grant or Greeley. It
was a fierce and hostile arraignment of
the Republican party, couched in decent
and temperate language for a public
speaker of to-day. Fitzgerald's Hall
was very comfortably firled to hear him.
We are led "to these remarks by our earn
est desire to see a better toue in our
public disputes than has generally pre
vailed, and next to the speaker that
uselessly and violently denounces every
body aud everything opposed to him as
vile, weak, false and hellish, is the Ed
itor who rushes off to his oanctum and
belittles himself, the intelligences of the
audience, and the dignity of the Press,
by stating that an opponent is no speak
er, a fool, a knave, there was naught but
empty benches to hear him, and so on.
We propose to make this )aper a
record of facts in such matters, so that
if- our best enemy tees a statement of
fact there, he will feel sure that it is true.
Seuator Tipton is a good speaker, an
able man, but we certainly never heard
him talk when we liked him less; and
he never was more unfortunate in his
choice of words and similes.
The charges that he makes have been
gone over times without number, and
have othtng'to da with the present issue
By his own account the Georgia
-ch'-me was defeated ; it has never in
jured the country. The terrible and
sublime heroism of the virtuous few
(Liberals) was all thrown away in the
matter of guarding our elections by
soldiers, out of which they claim so
much, for. by his own showing, there
were enough virtuous men left in that
Sodom of Representatives to squelch it
before it ever became a law. Every
sane man in Nebraska knows that we
have never had a soldier to guard our
polls, never had two men at five dollars a
day to watch us, nor did ever a Northern
State in the Union. "Suppose a few reck
less or thoughtless men did attempt to
get such a bill through, is that any rea
son for arraigning a whole party, damn
ing an innocent President, and throwing
the country into a spasm of useless and
aimless rage, because they could not and
did not pass it.
In f-hort, the Senator's whole argu
ment simply showed what we all know,
that the party has not been immaculatr,
but it does not, and he cannot show any
good reasons why Gen Grant should le
blamed for what corrupt Senators and
Congressmen desire to do. Nor does he
give any reasons why the country would
not be safer under Gen. Grant who has
earnestly desired to break up and purpe
out these nests of fraud rather than
under the wing of an impracticable and
foolish old man, who is surrounded bj
harpies and flatterers.
The Senator says he never asked a po
sition for his son, and he has not "sour
ed" on the Administration for refusing
him. We believe him. Opposition
newspapers state differently, but w
choose to believe the Senator, when he
states a fact, only asking for the sanit
courtesy, in return, and that the out
pouring of a mad and crazy journalist
against the President may not be
crammed down our throats nolens voleox.
If Gen. Grant could stand forth and
defend himself as Senator Tipton can,
and does, we make no doubt that his
administration would come out in bettar
and purer lights than we have yet heard
or dreamed it could.
Last night's audience was not a sym
pathetic crowd. It was not a Tipton
crowd, nor yet a Greeley crowd and,
pardon us, Senator and gentleman, ali,
nothing but the fact that we are re
markably bashful and retiring, prevent
us from telling the world that it was de
cidedly a Grant crowd.

Here is a spceimen of literalism with
a witness :
In the year A. D. 1S55 one James
Orchard, who had obtained from the
United States a land warrant for his
services as a 6oldier in the Mexican war,
came to Lucas County, Iowa, for tbe
purpose of locating the same ; and after
traveling over the -county found a tract
which exactly suited him. Getting off
his horse he took from his pocket his
land warrant for 1C0 acres, opened and
laid it upon the ground, at the same
time.gaying, "In the name of the United
States'! lay my land warrant npou this

J THAI. EARLY" LETTER. -
This note Southern leader is out with
u letter against Greeley, and tells some
truths that might be pondered on by
others than Democrats. After telling
of his exile and the hardships he en
dared, he says:
If it Fhould ever be your fate to go
through such an experience, Mr. Editor,
which I trust may never be the case,
then you will understand the fallacy of
your conjecture, and the implacability
and impracticability which you are
pleased to attribute to me ; and you will
also understand how it is that I am sus
picious of all compromises with any of
the authors of our, wrongs and sufferings,
nd that if it were possible I would
make greater sacrifices and go to much
f irther lengths to "crush the htted foe "
than you would now be willing to sanc
tion You would also understand my
reluctance to take as a leader one of the
main authors of all our woes, and I
think you "would then be willing to ex
elaim with me, in the oft quoted lan
guage of the Lat n poet, 'Timeo Danaos
rt dona f rentes !" As you have made
some refeience totacticsand flank move
ments, I must say that if you had fol
lowed the immortal Jackson in one of
his great flunking operations, you would
have learned the necessity of a compact,
firm, self-reliant organization, aud a so
of a leader in whom the most implicit
confidence could be placed ; and
you would understand the madness
of disbanding in the face of the enemy
and going over pell-mell to the first de
serter from the ranks of the enemy who
should ware his old white hat as a snare
and a delusion.
Here is a piece of information which
could not be obtained at any price except
from a Paris paper : "Miss Grant is one
of the most highly educated women in
Europe. She speaka with facilty Eng
lish, German, French, and Italian. She
has contributed nnder the veil of anony

Gen. John M. Tuater was then se

Hon. John Gillespie called attention
to the fact that an appropriation of can
non for monumental purposes had been
voted to Nebraska, and some action
ought to be taken on the matter.
Senator Tipton suggested that the
next Re-union would be the proper
time, and if it was so announced, a lar
ger attendance would be given, and a
more satisfactory disposal of the busi
ness arrived at.
Gen. Cunningham moved that a
committee be appointed to attend to
this matter, especially. This debate led
to the passage of the second resolution,
to which we call especial attention.

"Don't think we havo " replied the
young gentldioan, facetiously; "but

prompt retort, leaving the interrogator
rather at a loss to produce ths article.

That "The Pen is mighter than the

follow that an expert of the one is bet

representative of the other.
The President of this nation should
be distinguished for executive force for
those qualities of heart and mind neces

dence and firmness.
By his pen Mr. Greeley has exerted a
moulding power upon his party and the
nation. His genuine sympathy for hu
manity and his zealous advocacy of
equal rights for all, have gained for him
the esteem and adoiiriiticn of ranny.
His honesty and power in the use of
language are undoubted. " Beyond this

Though "confirmations strongas proofs

to prove that Dr. Pierce, the proprietor
of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy, is in ear

which he cannot cure, yet there would
be some skeptics and fogies who would
continue to shout, "Humbugl" "Hum
bug! 1" "It cannot be, because Dr.
Homespun says Catarrh cannot be cured.'
Now, this Dr. Homespun is the identical,
good-natured old fellow who honestly be
lieves and persists in declaring that this
earth is not round or spherical, but flat
as a "slap jack," and does not turn over,
otherwise the water would all be spilled
out of DeaconBascom's mill pond. But
astronomical science has positivelv dem
onstrated and proven that Dr. Home

be flat and sattionary, aud medical sci
