The skirmish toon is past.
These words, are mild and very few.
But then she ha the last.
Wo do not say vote early and vote
often, but vote once and vote right. That
is the main thing, and no'inan who can
read, and think for himself, and who
is not trammeled by gross party preju
dices, can help tut vote for the true aitd
tried General ; the quiet and unassum
ing citizen ; the safe fiuancier ; the real
advocate of reform (because he and te
alone of all our Presidents proposed to
lo away with the patronage system,
while be was yet in oOcc, in power), and
the practical Statesman who does not
make speeches, but nevertheless im
presses foreign nations with our power
and majesty, so that justice, to the tune
of three millions and over its granted us,
and all our rights arc respected. This is
the man to vote for, and his name is
Ultsses S. Grant.
Readers, and friends, the time is close
upon us, when you wiil be called on to
decide the future of this country, for the
next four years, at all event''. If 3 0U
. think that the great Republican party
has managed the affairs of the country
well, if our taxes have been reduced,
and our finances well and truly taken
care of, then it is your duty te turn out
and vote for the nominee of that party.
That all this has been done, and more ;
that 00 the whole we never had more
eause for rojoicing, nor more security for
prosperous future, should the same
line of policy be continued, no thinking,
reading man can deny. - '

that in no other way can you influence
or affect the laws of your country, either
for good or for evil, but by the ballot.
Let us see one and all, then, anxious

It would be useless at this stage of the
game to call yosr attention to the candi
dates for whom you are to vote on next
Tuesday. Their qualities and their ca

through a long and acrimonious cam

vote. & a solemn duty, for the candi

to the light he has in him.
1 remising that ail honest men, e
those truly interested in reform will
agree with as, that the first great desid-
eratum for reform must be an honest in
tention to reform. This the followers'of
Mr. Greeley cannot claim with aoy show
of fustice. because the fact is too well
established that tho real part' of reform,
the men who mciat to curb some evils
ot our present system, and of the Re
publican party were sold out and over
ruled by this faction that hoped by the
aid of Democratic votes to gain the pow
er and the patronage of this Govern
ment. Thii is and was the sole object
of the Greeley movement. The men
who inaugurated, and have carried it
through, are marked, they will never
appear above the surface in American

After a careful research tho sole busi
ness that we can Sad or hear of wherein
the Editor of the Omaha Herald told
the truth or where he ever was a true,
prophet, wa3 in hid estimate of Horace
Greeley. YVe give him credit for grout
penetration and a singular acutencis in
discerning the real character of this man
Greeley, when nearly all the rest of the
world supposed him at least booest,
thougit unsafe an J cnatic as a leader.
In Miller's Herald of June 1808 he
said Mr. Greeley was, "the Veteran
rascal." In an issue of Ang. 4th, same
year, he said he was a "xcare crow and a
scoundrel." At different times during
that year, and the succeeding one, he
told his readers that Mr. Greeley this
Horace Greeley he now tells you to vote
for was a putty-faced old rascal,' an
ambling old sinner, a hypocrite, an un
mitigated falsifier. False to friends,
false to truth, tricked brained and rotten.
That all this ha turned out truu to
tho letter any one can see by reading the
followiug extracts all from the Trilune
Greeley's own paper.
They prove him all that Miller called
him, and it is seldom that a man is con
victed so completely out of . his own
mouth. That he is lthc Veteran rascal"
his tobacco dealing?, and the bargain
and sale to the Democrats by which he
was nominated at Cincinnati conclusive
ly prove. No other American ever had
the hardihood and effrontery to offer
himself as a candidate to a party of
whom he had said the fuliowing :
"Point where you please to an elec
tion distriet which you will pronounce
morally rotten given up iu great part
to debauchery and vice and that dis
trict will be found at every election giv
ing a largo majority for that which styles
itself the Democratic party. Take
all the haunts of debauchery in the land,
and you will find nine-tenths of their
master spirits active participants of the
same Democracy. M5' it be
written on my grave that I never was a
follower, and lived and died in nothing
The scare crow we all know about as
well as Dr. Miller, whether that is a
crime, we are not so certain. The Doc
tor seemed to think it was and coupled
it with scoundrel.
"Putty faced old rascal" In a letter
dated. June 8, 1ST I, Horace Greeley
"That those who struggled and fought
for success generally believed that they
were right in so doing, I cannot doubt.
They propose to renew the fight,
but not with gun and saber. They ex
pect to regain, as Democrats, through
elections, the power thv;. lost as rebels
In a speech in Pittsburgh, September
19, 1S72, Horace Greeley said : -
"And now, to day, if the nation wa
lo hi imperilled, and there were just two
modes of saving it to trust to the
chances of civil war, or to the chances of
a free vote of the Southern people I
would very greatly prefer to take the
latter chance rather thau the former.'-
If that is not puttyfaced enough read
his Pittsburg speech and the one he
made a few days later taking it all back.
How well Milier must have known
him "Ambling old Sinner." '
In October 1SG7, he said :
fFrom the Tribune. Oct. 30, 1507.
This would amount to six in a bed,
exclusive of every other vermin, for ev
ery other Democratic couch in the
State of New York, including tlio.se of
Sing Sing and Auburn.
In Oct. 1S72 he advises us to turn the
government over to these Democrats
and becomes the candidate of these gen
tie men (?) from Sing Sing and Auburn.
"A Hypocrite" In KSG7 he told us
From the N. Y. Tribune. Oct. 25th, 1&57.
To smoke i3 a Democratic virtue; to
chew is that virtue intensified ; to drink
is that virtue in the superlative.
In Oct. 1S72 he is the candidate of a
large portion of our own people who but
lately met in convention and pledged
to vote for no "Temperance men" for
office in the U. S. and his friends arc
denying his anti-temperance and anti
tobacco record, without one word of re
proof from him.
"An unmitigated Falsifier" To say
nothing of the lies he told about Demo
crats, any man whose epithets on those
who have not agreed with him liave
passed into proverbs needs no further
condemnation in this respect. Miller
knew this !
"Fake to friends, false to truth"
For years he has been known as the
most radical of Republicans, as the most
ardent advocate of protection, as the
bitterest hater of Democrats, and yet
to-day, false to all this, false to the party
that made him, to the friends that
helped him, he is the candidate of a
Democratic Convention, is cursiog the
Republican party, and must be silent on
'Wicked brained and rotten!" In
1SC2 he said the Democratic party was
"which comprised all the most peiilous
elements in the country a party fo
which the dansrerous classes most natu
tally allotted them.-elves."
Read wh-t he has said at different
times of the men he is now associated
with and who are all supporting Horace
Greeley ad Reform :
"If apples are wormy this year, and
grapes mildew, and duck's egs addle,
and bladed corn be lodged, it may all be
asctibed to the unhallowed influence of
Mr. Tilton's Life of A ictoria Woodhull,
of which we give copious extracts in an
other place. It is certainly the mot ex
traordinary book ever written out ot
Red lam. Its nchiies of invention, its
naive ignorance, ana its innocent ini
morality cauc us to wonder whether the
vetran romancer, Paul de lvock, who
died lat week, did not amuse his fir.-t
leisure hours in the Spirit World by dic
tating this preposterous book to the ed
ltor of The Uohten, Aae." Tribune.

such language is ad dressed, it is th

That Patent Cat.
The inventor of the patent cat exter

appreciative of his iemaikable invention
We extract the following :
"We rave been using for a week past
a recent invention of a Cleveland me

sheet iron cat, with cylindrical attach

causes, at the same time, the patent cat
to emit all the noi.cs of which the hu

"I thiuk the convention would make
a fatal error iu nominating Greeley for
the Presidency. Instead of being the
strongest candidate that can be put for
ward, I regard him as the weakest. It
is not possible- for him to win the Ger-
uiau vote. He has been a Ujeioug lem

with the most uitra and unrea

The November Number of Harper's
Magazine closes the Forty-fifth Vol
ume a volume made up of contribu
tions from the ablest eoteinporary writers
of America and Kurope ; profusely il
lustrated, containing 450 engravings, or
an average of 75 engravings for each
Number; and including serials by Porte
Crayon, William Flagg, Emilo Castelar,
Anthony Trollope, Miss Thackeray, Chas.
Reade, and Wilkie Collins. Of a vol
ume so brilliant in all those features
which render a magazine attractive, the
November Number is a worthy conclu
sion. The Number opens with the sixth in

From this article, the reader will natu

from the inception of the Joint High

position of the Indirect Claims bv the
Arbitration Tribunal. It brings into the
strongest light the opprobrious conduct
of the Euglih pr o.-s ; shows how, from
the simple tolerance of the Indirect
Claims as a subject of arbitration, the
people aud the Government of England
were roused to tho point of a panic
stricken and indignant protest against
the submission of these claims to the
Tribunal ; and shows how our own Gov
ernment maintained throughout its dig

through the judgment ohe tribunal,
secured a Diplomatic triumph of greater
importance to the United states than
any pecuniary award could h-ive been,

Every one who has been in Salt Lake

what recklessness the gamblers there
seize upon every opportunity to play a
practical joke. No dignity of character
or official place deter these desperate
