HURRA FOR HORACE GREEDEY FOR PRESIDENT.

“They will sustain Horace Greeley, whose presence on the ticket should be a guarantee to
the country of the dignity and power of the reform movement; he would, they argue, carry an
overwhelming Republican vote, and render the work of the Philadelphia gathering useless. They
are equally frank in their repugnance to Charles Francis Adams, whose letter is regarded as
frivolous and undignified. He is accused of courting Administration bounty by his careless, or,
as they term it, slighting allusion to the Liberal Convention.”—N. Y. Tribune, April 27.
