When we first m t Gen. Cunningham,
at Inco!n, two years ago, and were in
troduced to him as the President of the
Senate, we thought hi to a quiet little
man of not much force. When he dis.
played some con-iderable parliamentary
knowledge and skill in that position we
thought, ' well ho i a good presiding
officer, that's all." We begin to suspect
he must b of more strength than we
give him credit for. He must be a man
of some power when it takes the united
abilities of the four leading Democratic
papers of this State to write him down.
Keep at it, gentlemen. The public like
such talk just when impor ant national

AFFIDAVIT OF DR IRELAND.
LouiiE Irehiiid, of Unadilia. Otsego
eo'.uny, iSew lork, hemg urnrn, says
that Lewis ( at iniehael. aisoof Loadilla.
whom he has known for six years, has
frequently been in deponent's office in
Unadilla, ami has.-nownd -ponent letters
from lloraee Gn-tley, of New York.-five
or siix in number; and one letter of Ho
ratio Seymour; that deponent did not
readily read Greeley's letters, except the
heading and signature Carmichael be
ing addres-cd as "friend Carmiehael,
in one or more of them whieh letters
deponent held in his han 1. Their con
tents related to matters understood be
tween 'armichael ami Greeley, some of
the letters pas-nig on as thoush con
nected with previous busin-ss ; and one
of the letters inrtfeil. Carmichael to go
to Cincinnati. These letters were shown
to deponent in the last of March or first
of April, 1872. ('armichael then said
to deponent that (wteelry tcoula he nomt
nateil at (Cincinnati, atid the Democrats
irouhl adopt him : that the nnlv point
there was, that Greeley shouhl gel the.
(sincinnati nonitnatmn. Deponent ne
rused Horatio S -ymour's letter, which
he read easily, an i recognized th hand
writing according to bis previous knowl
e,l2'i ot it, as .Vyuiour s. ihe subjects
ot th it letter w-re as follows: It men
tim-d an interview of Carmi;hael ami
Seymour, and an tuten iew of Carmi
chael ami Gree'ey . saying he Sey

ha a prqtsetl, so as to unite persons of
dirlerent views in the coalition movement;
siifve-ded that if Greeley favored this.
it Would tniMtth the wati to the end. De
ponent s strong impression is that Gree
ley's candidacy was mentioned ; but of
that f. does not say positively. J he
time when this letter was read by de
ponent was about the last of March or
first of April. 1872-
The subject had previously been
brought to deponent s attention by I .nr-
michael: but when the letters were
fhown. particularly Greeley's letters,
deponent thought the matter too absurd
to notice ; but after the Cincinnati nomi
natiou he understood their importance.
and endeavored to procure copies. He
would have exposed the matter, except
that he had hopes of procuring the let
ters or conies ot them.
Deponent was informed in December,
LS7I, from the statement of Carmijhael,
that Greeley had promised (.'armichael
the tone of the Ti Hume would b changed
about the fir-t of the year 1872; and
the deponent, on noticing, aw thv change
which statement of laruiiehael depo
nent can prove on competent testimony
of a public officer.
Deponent further remembers that in
one ot Greeley s letter s, Lhase was men
tionej as now feeble and broken down.
Deponent makes this statement on his
honor as a citizen, and because he be
lieves the facts he has mentioned should
be exposed. L. E. IRELAND.

A SECOND CHALLENGE.
We had intended to make a review of
the case we present to-day, but lime and
space do not admit or it. H e think al
doubtless will concede that the case
speaks for it-cT.
The responsibility for disproof is now
placed. Suia 1 talk and hall-way denial
are no Ioniser in order. If Mr. Greeley,
or Seymour, or Hutchins, vs misrepre
sented, we invite him to appeal to the
courts. Lt him sue us for libel, or
slander. We will undertake to prove as
touch better case than we now present
tt" tho rae we hare made t better than
wo promised. Dare they answer this
challenge. W e propose that they try.
The following paragraph from the
Tribune ot yesterday, which we had
missed in our daily glance at that paper,
is called to our attention as we go to
1 he Ringhanipton liepubl'can has for
some weeks endeavored to ordain a no
tice from this journal by a series of fa'
ricwiions which have not even the small
"niieiit of plausibility. It has from day
to dav pretended that it would support
its charces bv letters which it has re
pea ted ly threatened to produce but still
withholds. In vain has its ally, the Even
inn Fast, urged it to produce its evidence
or confess itself mistaken Print your
letter", or acknowledge your slanders!
1 his lournal has been "noticed very
often bv Mr. Greeley, in the Tribune,
during the year pa.-t; and the lesser
trills of that paper, in assuming to
notice" us, are guilty of an imperti
nence, lhey are iikewi-e '.mty or a
deception, u e asked them to deny, by
lu'liontv. of Mr Greeley, or Seymour,
or Hutchins; and they have not been
able to do it. The Tribune is "not an
organ," and does not of course, speak
foi Mr. Greeley. Let us now see what
it will sav if it can sav anything, for it-
elf. We have pointed Mr. Greeley to
Ids remedr. And the mere word of Mr.
Greeley is not henceforth current with
the American people.

In view of Mr. Greeley's revolting
purpose of favoring the payment of pen
sions to rebel soldiers, should he be
elected to the presidency, what guaranry
have the people that he would not also
recommend the payment of foui hundred
millions of dollars to the ex-slavo hold
ers, as compensation for the loss of their
laves, in accordance with the proposi
tion he made in 1S64 ? This is a matter
which deserves to be carefully pondered.
Greeleyism, installed in the Executive
