NSW Tors, Mav 10.—Tho Independent No form Conference in this city finished its deliber ations to-day, and adjourned without day. It eft os the result of Its work an Executive Com mittee having Carl flehurz as its head and com posed of tho Business Committee of the Con ference, together wlth'reprcscntativo men to be selected from different States of tho Unions also, Alt ADDRBSS TOTIIB AMERICAN PEOPLE, calling upon patriots to support tho reform movement and old ln.sccurlng a reform Presi dent. Resolutions taking a strong position for Civil Service reform were unanimously adopted. Carl Sclmrz snd T. W. Hlggtnson discussed the best way of giving tho movement weight with the country. Sidney Thomas offered a resolution putting forward Charles Fronds Adams as a candidate, but It was rejected, the sentiment of tho Con ference being In favor of naming no man, but of looking first to the Republican Convention for a candidate,’ second to the Democratic Con vention, and, 17 DOTH TAILED to giro tho country a reform candidate, then to nominate an Independent Reform ticket. The day was marked by even greater interest and enthusiasm than tbo session on Monday. Tba approval of the work of Carl Sctmrz and bis colleagues on tho Business Committee in forming tbo address to tho people was shown by the manner with which it was received. The utmost quiet reigned, broken only by the warm applause which greeted every strong point and happy phrase. The frequency' of these outbursts showed that tho Conference welcomed the address as a production honoring alike the men who drafted it and the Conference which demanded it. The significance of tho Cen tennial epoch in politics woo forcibly expressed, and mingled with thoughts of what this Republic once was, what It was intended to be. and what It now la. Tho Conference applauded tho assertions that the people are sound ana strong at the core; that national obligations must bo fulfilled and tho curse of an irredeemable paper currency removed; that the time bos como when it is a question of life and death; that a corrupt monarch may live by the rule of force, but a corrupt republic cannot en dure; that too will of tho people baa been subju gated to the ends of political mercenaries through (be cultivation of a tyrannical party spirit TUB KBBN WOBD3 which wore used to point oat tho men whom tho Reformers would not support for the Presidency awakenodnrolongcd applause and shouts of appro bation. The hope expressed that tho Reform ers weald not be obliged by tho two old parties to Start a third and independent movement was re ceived with evident satisfaction. Tho unanimous adoption of the address followed as a matter of course. In tho discussion that followed Carl Bchurz said that the weight ond breadth of the movement did not depend entirely upon the names appended to tho address. The virtue of the cause was in tho cause Itself. CHARLES FRANCIS ADAMS. JR.. km loudly called for, and responded in a brief speech, which was so forcible and outspoken that It made a strong Impression on the Conference. Ho wanted an honest Government and honest money. He bad come to tell the Republican party that, if It desired the support of the independents, It could set that support by tho nomination of Secretary Bristow. Mach applause followed this somewhat Bncxpccted declaration of the son of Charles Fran* di Adams, and somebody exclaimed: “Wouldn’t Charles Francis Adams do as wullT" If the lie* publicans passed by Bristow, Mr. Adams said ho would act with the Democratic party if it supported Tildcn; if these alternatives tailed, ho would ad* vacate an Independent reform ticket, which ut least would give them tho satisfaction of a con science-vote. PARKE GODWIN believed that a new reform party might be the only conscience party of this campaign, but it would be the victorious party of another campaign. It would be better first to look to other parties. If they did not offer the country an honest man, tho reformers would bo wise and strong enough to getsucb a man for themselves. DORMAN D. BATON stirred op much enthusiasm on Civil Service re form, and Introduced strong resolutions on tho subject, which were adopted. ■ ■ HENRY RANDALL WAITS laid: “Wo do not want Mortons, Conkllngs, and Pendletons in politics. Wo want mon like Charles Francis Adams." The loudest cheering of tho session followed this mention of tho name of Mr. Adams. It began in tho New England side of tho sail, and spread quickly.

New York, May 10.—The gentlemen who net .In tho Fifth Avenue Hotel yesterday to confer upon tho present political situation, with special regard to the Presidential campaign, re sumed their session this morning, the Rev. Dr. "Woolsey presiding. The President announced that the Committee on Address, appointed yes terday, was ready to report, and Immediately Carl Sehurt arose and read tin/following .. ADDRESS TO TUB AMERICAN PEOPLE.* Fxllow.Citizens: A conference of citizens as sembled In Now York, sincerely desiring to servo the beat interests of tho American people, beg leave to submit to your candid consideration the following appeal: A national election is approach ing under circumstances of peculiar significance. Never before in oar history bos the public mind been ao profoundly agitated by apprehensions of dangers arising from tho prevalence of corrupt tendencies and practices in our polllicsUife, and Sever has there been greater reason for U. Wo will not desphiy hero in detail the distressing cata logue of disclosures which for several years have followed one another in rapid succoeeion, and eeem to have left scarcely a single sphere of our political life untouched. The records of courts, of State Legislatures, and of tho National Congress speak with terrible plainness, and still they are adding to the scandalous exhibition. THEN AND NOW. WUU each a state of tilings would, under any . afcumstances, appear most deplorable, It la pe« tulUrJy so at the present moment. Wo are about |p celebrate the one.hundrcdtß birthday of our na jioaal existence. Wo have invited the nations of {ns earth on this great anniversary to visit our ana, and to witness the evidence of our material r l^ rCM » as well ■ as the working and effects of that republican Government which a century ago cur fathers founded. The most inspiring memo* res of our post history aru rising' up Jboforo os In M*w glow of life, forcing upon us a comparison •* what this Republic was once, what It was in tended to be,(and what It is now; and upon this wo aave challenged the Judgment of civilised man- with our own. There is much of ,wuicb every American cltlsen baa reason to be proud,—an energy and thrift, a power of thought ■hd action, a progressive spirit Which, In mugnlfl. oeace of result, have outstripped all precedent and anticipation. A history abounding In lllustra «Jons of herloe patriotism, fortitude, and wisdom, a greater freedom from foreign wars and revolutionary changes of Government anaa moet other nations can boast of, our llepub ne.-bat a century old, and Just Issued from the ••“7 Brest civil conflict we have bad to deplore, so •trong In resources snd organisation that it stands rathe foremost rank of the great powers of the aartbt and yet, with all these splendid leiulw on -, w . r ‘ 1 ' it cannot be denied that. at no pertou dur “a the century now behind us, have the American be«n Use satisfied with themselves. That etnteauW anniversary of the Declaration of Indu psnuvnce, being in so many respects to all Amcrl cans a day of sincerest pride and rejoicing, Is felt other respects not without seU-roprosch humiliation. Of this, the corruption revealed la ouruulitical life Is the cause. : /to tbs honor of the American people be it said. 2***7 patriotic citUea feels the burning shame of ** spectaci# preseated ia the centennial year there the mementoes end monuments of the vlr taet of the put, end here the ■ hocking evidences of the demoralization end corruption of the present; there the plowing eulogies prononnced nn the wisdom end purity of the fathers, end here in mocking contrast the verdicts of courts end records of legislative bodies, Illustrating the political mor* els of to-day, end this before ell manKlod solemnly summoned u e witness to the exhlhltonnnd a guest to the feast. Never was there cansu for keener mortification, and keenly does It strike every patri otic heart. TUB RBMBDT. Dow can wa avert such dangers and wipe off such abamot Dy proving that, although the Government machinery has become corrupt the great body of the people ore sound and strong at the core, and that they are honestly determined to reform the abuses of our political life, and to overthrow at any cost the agencies of evil that stand in tbo way. Only inch an effort, woll-dJrcotcd and sternly per severed In until success Is assured, will save the Sood name of the nation, prevent the prevailing Iscoso from becoming fatal, and restore to Its old strength tbo faith of oar own people in their Insti tutions, At the impending national election various ques tions of great Importance will bo submitted to our ladmncnt The settlement of thodvll War ns consti tutionally fixed must bo conscientiously maintained, and nt tbo tame time the Government strengthened In the general confidence by tho strict observ ance of constitutional principles, and tbo old brotherhood of tho people revived by a policy of mutnal justice and conciliation. Our solemn and often-repooted pledge, faithfully to discharge all national obligations, must bo fulfilled, not only by tbc payment of the principal and Interest of our bonucudobt when due, bat also tho removal, not later than the’ time provided by existing law, of tho cause of our redundant irredeemable paper currency, Which not only Impedes tho return of true prosperity, but has also largely contributed 1 6 the existing demoralization. WHAT 18 WAMTBD. These are grave questions, and there are more wo might touch, were It our purpose to lay down a com- Filelo political platform; but grave as they are. still, n onr present situation, wo most os American citi zens, recognise It aa our most pressing duty to re establish tho moral character of our Government and to .elevate the tone of our political life. Honest government Is tho first con dition of enduring national prosperity, power, and freedom. Without the elementary virtues of po litical, as well as social life, decay will outstrip our progress. Onr discussions and struggles about other great questions and principles will appear like o mockery and farce If wo permit our public concerns to drift Into that rnlnous anarchy which corruption must necessarily bring In its train, be cause It destroys the confidence of people in their self-government the greatest calamity that can befall a republic. It la a simple question of life or death. A corrupt monarchy may last by tbo rule of force. A CORRUPT REPUBLIC CANNOT SNDURB. It is useless to console ourselves with the Idea that tho corruption among us must bo ascribed solely to tho immediate effects of the Civil War, and will, without an effort nt reform, soon pass away. There In another conso which is not transitory, but threatens to become permanent. It U tho system which has made tho offices of tho Gov* eminent the mere sport of party victory; tho sys* tem which distributes the places of trust and re sponsibility oa the reward of party service and tho bounty of favoritism; tho system which appeals to (ho mean Impulses of selfishness and greed as a controlling motive of political action; the system which degrades tho civil service to the level of a more party agency, and treating the officer as tho hired servant of tho party and taxing him for party support, stimulates corruption, and places It under party protection; the system which brings tho or ganisation of the parties nndor the control of tho most selfishly Interested, and therefore most active, element,— the place-holders and the place hunters.—thus tending to organise a standing army of political mercenaries, to bo paid out of the Treasury of the Government, who, by organized action, endeavor to subjugate tho will of the pen fla to their ends, through tho cultivation of a yrsnnlcal party spirit. fnit sport’s btstbm. Every etndent of our political history knows that since tuc spoils system was inaugurated corruption has steadily grown from year to year, and so long as this system lasts, with all Its seductions and de moralizing tendencies, corruption will continue to grow in extent and power, for patriotism ood true merit will more and more be crowded out of politi cal life by unscrupulous selfishness. Tho War has only given a sudden stimulus to this tendency, bat without thcwaritwouldhavcgrown up, and will not cease to grow as long os the hotbed of corruption,' the spalls system, lasts. Tbo skill in corrupt practices acquired by one gcncrafon of fpoil-men will only be Improved up on by tbo next. Tbo result wo know. Wo have already reaped so great a harvest of disaster and shame that, wo repeat. It has now become tbo first duty of the American people to re-establish the moral character of tho Government by thorough reform. HONE9TT TUB WATCHWOBO. What can wo do toward this end In tho Impend ing nations! election! In this respect, fellow-citi zens, we consider It our duty to speak very plain ly. Never were tho cause of good Government and the honor of tho American name more Imme diately dependent on the character, ability, and reputation of the men to be selected for the high est offices/ In view of tho grave circumstances at f resent surrounding us, wo declare that tbecoun* ry cannot now afford to have any man elected to the Presidency whoso very nemo Is not conclusive evidence of the most uncompromising determina tion of the American people to tnake this a pure Government once more. Our duty In this respect Is plain and Imperative. Tho worn out clap-trap of fair promises In party platforms will not satisfy It; neither will these 'line Srofeasions on tho part of candidates, ot more words are needed, but acta; not mere platforms but men; and wo therefore declare and call upon all good citizens to Join us, (hat at the coming Presidential election we shall support no candidate who, in public position, over counten anced corrupt practices or combinations, impeded their exposure or punishment, or opposed neces sary measures of reform, wo shall support no candidate who. while possessing official tnaoenco ond power, lias failed to use his opportunities In exposing and correcting abuses coming within the reach of bis observation, but for personal and party ends has permitted them to fester on; fur such men may bo counted on not to uncover and crash cor ruption, but far the party s*ke merely to conceal it more. thorough reform. Wo shall support no candidate, however con spiclous his position or brilliant his ability. In whom tho impulses of the party managers have shown themselves predominant over Chose of tho reformer, for ho will bo inclined to continue that fundamental abuse: tho employment of tho Gov ernment tervicu as e machinery far pcne-ftl or party ends. Wo shall support no candidate who, however favorably jndgedbybls nearest friends. Is not publicly known to possess those qualities of mind andcharacter which the ntern task of genu ine reform requires, for the American people can not now afford to risk the future of tho Republic in experiments.on .merely supposed virtue or ru mored ability, to bo trusted on tho strength of private recommendation. In one word, at present, no candidate should bo held entitled to tho support of patriotic citizens of whom the ■ question may fairly bo ashed, “Is ho really too man to carry through a thorough-going reform of the Government! Can ho with certainty be depended upon to possess the moral courage and sturdy reso lution to grapple with abuses which have acquired the strength of established custom, and to this end firmly ruaist the »prcsuro, oven of his party friends?" Whenever there Is room for such ques tion, and doubt ns to the onswer, the candidate should bo considered unfit for this emergency. This is no Umo for so-called availability spring ing from distinction gained on fields of action for eign to the duties of Goveynment, nor for that far maro dangerous sort of availability which consists in this—that the candidate bo neither so bud as to repel good clUzoni, nor so good as to discourage the bad ones. Passive virtue in tho highest place bos too often been known to permit tho growth of active vice bcluw. The man to bo intrusted with tho Presidency this year must have deserved nut only the confidence of honest men, but also TUB FEAR AND UATHEO OF TUB THIEVES. Uo who manages to conciliate the thieves cannot bo thu candidate, Byery American citizen, who has the future of the Republic and the national honor slnccrly at heart, should solemnly resolve that the country mast now have a President whose numo Is already a watchword‘of reform: whose capacity and courage for the work are matters of record rather than of promise; who will restore tho simplicity, independence, and rectitude of the early Administrations, ind whose lifu will boa guarantee of his fidelity and fitness—a mao at tho mere sound of whoso name, even, the most dis heartened willtako now courage, and alt mankind will say the Americans are indeed in. earnest to restore tho ancient purity of their Government. THEREFORE, Pcilow-citlzens, the undersigned in addressing you, are not animated by the ambition to former load a now party. Moat of ns have long been, and still are, warmly attached to their party associa tions. It would be most gratifying to us to see. by party action, candidates put forward whose char acter and record answer these requirements, which present circumstances render imperative. We earnestly hope and trust it will bo ao. We shall n follow such a lead, and make every effort ’ power to render it successful. But while wo are ready to accept any and every good result of puny action, wo atnria that the moral reform of ofar public concerns is infinitely superior In lm- Krtance to the Interests of *uy poiltletl party, ad to promote that reform through party action, wo shall insist upon it at all events. Should parly action faiT experience teaches us that the habitual submission of gop«j (itlzens to choice of evils pre sented to them by party organisations is one of the most prolific causes of cwfyupßuuin our poli tics. Tho acceptance by the people .of the argu ment that one party may be bad and •till entitled to tho support of good men because the other party is stilt worse, will Induce each to consider bow bad it muy safely be. it will strengthen in each the most unscrupulous elements and subject the will of the people to the subtile tyranny of organiza tions wielded by those who live by politics. To break that tyranny by a stern refusal to sub mit to such a choice of evils la the first beginning In tho reform of our political life. Without this all other steps will prove unavailing, We shall sincerely rejoice to see the necessity of ipdo- Bandent action avoided. We earnestly hope that i« efforts to this end, being made by (befriends of reform within parly limn, will he crowned with success, and that the just expectations of the peo* Sle may not bo doomed to disappointment. In eed -wo aro confident that If all times of our fellow citizens who in their hearts agree with what we have said, will only take tho courage openly to proclaim their convictions and purposes, such a manifestation alone would produce an effect sufficient to secure nominations, aud an election inaugurating a better order of tillage. m VIiUL AI'PBAL.

Another gentleman asked the conundrum whether Forrest and Itlcbardsonwcrc Republicans. Mr. King defended the men, asserting that as a whole they were as good as could be expected. Mr. Nickerson was of the opinion tbata majority of them were bummers, and, what was more, they were Beveridge men. Mr. Dore thought they ought not to be so par ticular at this time. liarmnny was necessary If the Republicans meant to win. The Chairman, while not at all satisfied with the names presented by the other Club, yet favored their being accepted, as otherwise the bummer* would select all the ten delegates, while iu this In stance they can gut but three, as two of the names were quite respectable. After considerable more discussion, which at tiroes was rather heated, and which showed that Mr. S. W. King was *the only Beveridge man present. It was decided to appoint a committee to propose ten names from whom to choose five additional delegates to those nronoacd by the other Club. One gentleman wanted to know whom the gentle men proposed would sujiporl for Governor. All but Mr. King said they would not support Bever idge. After the Committee had proposed ten names the following five delegates were chosen by ballot: L. L. Coburn, Leonard Swell, Ur. J. U. Jordan, Abner Taylor. andlL F. Lewis. The meeting then adjourned.
