tice. Tho position or judge is thai to which most
lawyers aspire after years of servico nt the
bar. It is not often that they aro seen tie
seendinj; from the bench to voluntarily under
Jake the drudgery of a less dignified posi
tion. Judge Thayer Is au exception. It can
not be urged in his behalf that bo accepted
this nomination for district attorney of Phila
delphia from a disinterested desiro to serve
tho public, since tho efficiency of his compet
itor cannot bo called in question. In fact Mr.
Hagert has tho decided advantage of him in
experience, in activity, and In capacity to en
dare the labors of the position. Nor can it be
said that the nomination came to Judge Thay
er unsought, for ho was an avowed candidato
long before the meeting of tho convention,
though ho did not secure a solitary delegate.
Since the position of judge is more dignified
than that of district attorney and since there
can bo no claim of zeal for the public inter
ests, the motive of Judge Thayer in seeking
this nomination must be sought elsewhere. It
is easily found. Tho salary of a judge in
Philadelphia is seven thousand a year. That
of district attorney is fifteen thousand. The
greed of Judge Thayer is confessed. lie de
scends from the bench and accepts this office
because it offers him more pay. It is not
possible that the majority of the people of
Philadelphia will put a premium upon cupid
ity by electing Judge Tbayer to the office
which he covets merely because of its value
to biin in dollars and cents. Patriot,
An Astounding Discovery.
TibuTa Carolina's quantity of arms for
TORTY yeaes furnished to the
Ki ,Gov. Hampton went away from this city
without being able to secure any Government
arms for his State militia. The critics who
cried out at Hampton's coming to secure arms
for what they pleased to call tho White
"League, will have to change their tone. When
-'Hampton made application it was thought
-that his State was entitled to a large num
ber of arms. The militia companies in his
State are not able to arm themselves ; hence
the application. On examination at the War
Department the astounding discovery was
made that South Carolina has already receiv
ed an advance of all arms to which it is en
titled for forty years to come. Jt was also
discovered that this extraordinary issue of
arms came through Don Cameron, who at the
instance of Honest John Patterson, ran this
load of arms into South Carolina for the use
of tbe negroes only. This was done last fall
Srhen the Camerons and Chandlers were cry
ing ont so loudly at the dangers arising from
"the presence of the White Leaguers in South
'Carolina. This when the negroes bad twenty
stand of arms to one for the whites. Beside
this great issue of arms, it will be remember
ed that a largo body of troops was ordered
into South Carolina. Everything was dono
that could be done here to precipitate a color
line fight, but tho patience and coolness of
Gov. Hampton and his people frustrated this
well laid plan. Gov. Hampton goes back
without any arms for his State, but he is sat
isfied with the reason, as it will help explain
to tho publio the extreme means adopted last
fall by the Administration people toward tho
South. Washington Paper,
COMPLIMENTS OF JUDGE BREWSTER TO
J. DONALD UAMEKON.
In speaking of tho Republican nominations
in Philadelphia, Benjamin Harris Brewster,
one of the ablest lawyers in the State says :
Tho time has now come to establish tho
Government in all its details, general and lo
cal in the hands of those who represent the
people, and not cabals, and who possess their
. offices only to perform their duties with agili
ty and fidelity. This State has been, and is,
at tho mercy of the worst men in it. They
have plundered and abused it, its resources.
jand ifito all offices of dignity and profit they
havo degraded its public life by intruding
fwieq that could bo found, taking tho obscure,
?pQious, lawless and ignorant, and cxclud
iag 'tho pure, honest, simple-minded, and
well informed. They bavo dragged tho fumo
of the Commonwealth into tho filth of fac
tion. At Washington wo have not been rep
resented except-by their instruments, who
,haye made us there, and throughout tho
jvhole country, the subjects of reproach and
ipdiam. Last winter our people were shocked
with the election of J. Donald Cameron,
the irresponsible son of tho Senator , of whom
I will not pealc, because he and his acta
have becomo a part of publio history, and
,aust be measured with more deliberation than
can bo given in a casual talk like this a son
that has neither mind, attainments, dignity
of character, knowledge of public affairs, par

I regard and appreciate this action of the
representative men assembled at Harrisburg
on tho 10 Inst, as a compliment and an honor;
but am not prepared to sever nil connection
with the party with which I have hitherte
Having full faith in the ability and dis
position of that party to effect all needed
reforms, as well in behalf of the laboring
classes as of all others, I cannot consent to
become a standard bearer of any new party
organization. In fact I have not desired
to imvo my name placed before the public
this fall by any party, but on tbe contrary,
to every inquiry whether I would consent
to be a caudidate, have given a negative
answer. Under these circumstances it would
be indelicate in me to discuss either approv
ingly or disapprovingly the principles of
This much however I may be allowed to
say, that I claim to be a working man, al
ways ready to favor and support every leg
islative or other governmental reform which
may tend to benefit the laboring classes
promote industrial pursuits and guard with
impartial judgment the rights and interests
of both capital and labor.
In declining to accept Ibis nomination, I
tender to tho members of this Convention,
through you, my thanks for tho honor con
ferred and confidenco expressed by its ac
tion, and to yourself and Frederick Turner,
Esq., the Secrctary,for tho kind terms of your
Our attention was called to the following
article in the Timet. Col. McClure doubtless
iutends to be facetious, but we give the article
as it appears without comment :
General Davis, of the Doylcstown Democrat
returns thanks to the Timet "for its kind men
tion"of the editorial statesmen who were before
the (Democratic State convsntionas aspirants
for the nomination for Auditor General, and
takes tho opportunity to say that every ono of
them is satisfied with the result of tbe conven
tion. They will give the ticket a hearty sup
port. Tho General would say, however and
it wont do to pretend not to hear him "that
in the near future tho politicians of Pennsyl
vania will have to rccognizo the claims of tho
press, a pretty formidable body of men when
their strength is tested. They have been en
gaged almost from timo immemorial, in mak
ing a great statesman out of small materia,
and tho fraternity begin to think they should
have some reward for their services that is
if making greatmen out of nothing ought to
bo rewarded. But if this view of the ques
tion involves political ethics wo will leave its
settlement to others. Now as a pretty full
ticket is to bo nominated next fall, let a repre
sentative man of the country press bo placed
upon the ticket." This is a very fair propo
sition, and it might bo well to begin the cam
paign in season, and make up the ticket now
with General Davis at tho bead for Governor,
Colonel Neiman of tho Easton Sentinel, for
Lieutenant Governor, and Capt. Brookway,
of tho Bloomsburg Columbian, for Secretary
of Internal Affairs. Tbe Democrats couldn't
have a better ticket, and it would cover a very
important section of the Stato which was left
out in the cold at the late convention, Gov
ernor Davis could select Colonel Tally for
Attorney General, make a Secretary of the
Commonwealth, out of Dr. Stable, of the
Gettysburg Compiler, anil a Superintendent
of Publio Instructions out of Mr. Acker, of
tho Norristown Gazette. As a matter of fra
ternal pride the limet could this ticket a hear

The British riflemen probably never shot bet

considered before this match exceptionally
fine scores. But tho American riflemen bavo
far surpassed oven that fine shooting, and
have won their victory not through tho indi

Judge Black's Letter to the Editor ot tho Pittsburg
York, Pa., Sept. 3, 1877.
James P. Barr, Esq Mi Dear Sir:
It Is quito out of tho question, with my
present engagements, to write fully on
the labor question, or even to give,
requested, n few thoughts which
nriq from A superficial look nt tho
situation, I have barely run over the nr
tide of Col. Scott, which Is characterized by
his rcmarkablo ability ns n practical man
Ho means business, no doubt. I should like
much to hear from Jlr. Gowen. Ho.lins
all tf Scott's fidelity to the interests of tho
corporation ho leads, Is his equal Iu energy
anil forcoof character,whilo ho looks through
all human dealings with n more learned
spirit. Besides, tlicro are others who ought
to enlighten the public mind. Have you
read the articles entitled "Fair Wages," by
a "Striker," in the last number of the Worth
American Becieio t Ho makes some sugges
tions that ought to bo considered nnd thought
of before they nro altogether rejected. Of
course I have no conception who tho writer
is, but judging him by his production I ex
pect to see him n power.
It cannot bo necessary to tell you or any
other sensible man that this country will
never consent to bo governed by a standing
army until the people make up their minds
to nbandon republican institutions utterly,
and submit without murmuring to an abso
lute depotism. The enemies of liberty on
both sides of tho wnter have oflered many
excuses for maintaining largo armies in time
of peace, but never anything so weak ns
that they set up now. Hundreds of thou
sands of laborers find themselves unablo to
protect themselves and their families from
starvation, and they becomo turbulent, as
every other people has done under the samo
circumstances. To maintain a standing
army for the purpose of keeping them in
order is the worst remedy that could bo de
vised for the evil. This reduces tho work
ingman to a state of mero slavery, where
the bullet and tho bayonet of the soldier
come in place of the overseer's lash. If
they submit, they will be fit instruments to
make slaves of us all. If they resist, civil
war will becomo the chronic condition of the
The United States have no right to inter
meddle with this business except in certain
contingencies, well defined and carefully
provided for in the Constitution. Tbe old
excus) that these limits ought to bo disre
garded became they confine the powers of
certain persons within limits inconveniently
narrow, is not one which ought to find ac
ceptance in the judgment of a free people.
But if the general Government must settle
the controversies between tbe railroad corpo
rations and laborers, let Its interference take
any shape but that of a standing army ; for
that would be not only cruel and dangerous,
but the most cumiva that cidld be adopt
ed. I believo nono of these corporations
think that less than a hundred thousand
men would serve their purpose ; and that is
a gross miscalculation, for three times the
number would scarcely be sufficient. It
would be much better, easier and cheaper
to take out of tbe Federal Treasury as much
money as will pay the railroad employees
fair wages and let the corporations havo the
fruits of their labors as clear gain. Of course
I don't say that we ought to be taxed to free
the railroad companies from the burden of
paying for tbe labor they employ, so that
they may increase their profits or be saved
from losses, but we had better do that than

Wade Hampton on South Carolina Frauds.
CATALOGUE OF THE CRIMES OF THE RAS
Governor Hampton was Interviewed at
Chicago on Wednesday. In reply to a re
porter he said :
"I see by tho papers to-day that Miles C.
Parker has made confession touching tho
Iniquities of the Chamberlain administra
tion. They are nil confessing now. Parker
ti.ed to bo stato treasurer. Ho was once nr-
rested, tried and convicted, but escaped from
tho stato. By tho way, you know, secret In
vestigation is being in nil o Into tho crimes
committed by ex-ofiico holders In tho stato
of South Carolina. Somo of tho papers nro
striving to create the Impression that this in
quiry amounts to n systematic persecution of
Innocent parties. This is great Injustlco to
the people of our state nnd to tho admin
istration of which I nm tho bend.
"Now let mo give you tho facts," said tho
governor. A committee was appointed by
tho legislature to ascertain whether any
funds had been misappropriated by officials
or the credit of tho stato Improperly em
ployed. The resolution for the appointment
of tho committee was offered by a republi
can A majority of tho committee itself
nro republicans. Tho fraud jury, beforo
whom the facts are being laid, nro nearly
nil republicans, if I am not mistaken. The
inquiry, in Bhort, Is essentially a republican
measure, nnd when all tho evideuce against
tho ringsters is brought out there is not n
republican in tho stato who will not sustain
the committee and tbe grand jury.
'The crimes of which theso !fellows
have been guilty embraco bribery, forg
ery, thievery, and I tell you, sir, tho official
corruption aud roguery of Tammany or of
Tweedism were not conceived on a more lib
eral or magnificent scalo than that which
characterized the republican administration
In South Carolina. Why, sir, just look at
some of the ovidenco brought out by this
'investigation!' Before the war It cost about
$100,000 a year to run tho machinery of our
state government. AVhen these bad men
came into power thoy had the legislature,
which tbey manipulated at pleasure. In
the legislature one session there were ninety
negroes who bad been originally field bands
and who could neither read nor writo. This
body appropriated $350,000 to pay for public
printing for one session. That was nearly
as much as it had formerly cost to run tbo
wholo state government. This $350,000 was
put into tho hands of a ring styled 'The Ite
publican Printing Company,' which kept
two complete sets of books ono set designed
to deceive tho public, nnd tho others show
ing just where the stealings went
"The investigating committee have dis-
covered that of this $350,000 the sum of
$122,000 was paid out in bribes to procuro
the passage of a bill for the appropriation
I hayo recently been shown a list of thirty
or forty legislators who had accepted bribes,
Opposite each name was tho amount asked
by the bribe taker and also tbe sum paid
him. Under the singlo head of legislative
expenses over $6,000 were disbursed in the
interest of corruption. There is plenty of
evidence that faces of warrants wero tamp
ered with. For example, one warrant is
sued by the state called for 11,000 ; tho first
two figures wero deftly converted to 44,
swelling the amount to four times the orig
inal sum. A fellow named B. F. Whitmore,
who you will recollect, was expelbjd from
congress for trading In cadetships, was one
of the Ieaderiof this gang of plunderers,
and this man Parker, who now comes out
with n confession, was in all the rings and
can, if he will, let out somo hideous secrets.
A good many of tho robbers are turning
states evidence. One chap, who was clerk
of the senate, and kept a complete diary of
all the thieving transactions, is telling nil be
knows, and be will probably be the means
of making large restitution to tho state
"Hayeyou reason to think, governor.that
Chamberlain shared in theso stealings 1"
"I can t say to what extent Chamberlain
realized on these spoils. Ho was connected,
I know, with nearly all tho boards, but he
says himself that he was ignorant of the
villainies that were perpetrated on the peo-
pie. Again I say it does us great injustice
to ascribe this investigation and prosecution
to political antagonism. It furnishes the
highest justification of tho government
which our people inaugurated last full the
government founded in a popular determin
ation to break up tbe rings and overthrow a
corrupt government, which was oppressing
and at the same time robbing them.
"The colored people are heartily in sym
pathy with these efforts to uncover frauds
and bring tbo official plunderers to jus
The governor was here asked If thero was
any political excitement among the masses
in his state at this time ; especially if the
whites were antagonizing the negroes.
"There isn't a particle of excitement down
there," was the governor's reply. "Only
one negro," he continued, "has been mur
dered by a white man sinco election time,
and tbe murderer in this case will be punish
ed to the utmost limit of the law. The ne
groes have their own militia companies and
are not interfered with in the slightest de
gree, iney nave ueeu organizing new
companies, and I havo promised to supply
them with arms as Boon as I can. The ne
groes are placed practically on tho same
footing as tho whites. There is a good state
of feeling coming about, and I think the
color line will disappear altogether at tbo
next election." In conclusion the governor
said the peoplo of his state nt present were
Ignoring local and natioual politics and de
voting themselves to making peace and

Washington, V. O., Sept. 18, 1877,
It is strange that now reports of Democrat
ic support for Hayes bhould be revived just
now when thero is a certainty that beforo
long, with or without Hayes, tho Democratio
party will have control of both houses of Con'
gress. But both North and South there is a
renewed effort to create an impression that
this or that Democrat will assist the adminis
tration in this or that way wheu Congress
meets. Tho Democrats of Muiuo nominated
for Governor a Ilcpublicau gentleman, who.
in his letter of acceptance, gavo more space
to an argument in support of Hayes' title to
the Presidency than to any other subject,
Various professedly Democratio journals are
surpassingly anxious on that subject. It
seems to me that tho duty of Democrats at
this timo is not to bunt up a valid title for
auy Republican officer. Tho Democratic par
ty is not, indeed, in power, but its advent to
power is not far off, and it cannot afford to
dishonor itscll by attempting to secure by in
direction what tbo common senso of tho peo
no has ulready decreed that it shall hayo.
Tli3 shameful and unnecessary defeat iu
Maine may be called the first result of such
bargaining. What the people want it a
change from BepublioanUm to Democracy, as
will be known al sight. Tho meeting of Con
gress, and the solid Democratio vote iu Houso
and Senate, will dispel tho many illusions of
half-heated Democrats and over confident Re
publicans, The good faith of tho Mexican Govern
ment in its promises to punish its subjects
who commit outrages in Texas, seems now to
bo conceded by our Government. Tho pres
ervation of pcaco between tho two Republics
would render valueless somo hundrods of mil
lions of dollars' worth of claims asainst Mox
ico held by parties hero and elsewhere, and
who expect tho United States, in event of
a war, to enforco payment. Their voico is
still for war, but probably common senso will
Jlr. Smith, dropped ns Commissioner of
Indian Affairs, goes abroad, it i? said, to a
good place. Mr. S. has an excellent reputa
tion among thoso who know him. Another
Ohio man is expected to succeed him ns Com
missioner. Thero is a great deal of mystery about Sen
ator Coukling's position. Blaine's friends
from timo to timo get good offices, as for in
stanco John L Stevens, who is given a for
eign mission; butConkling's particular friends
liko Cornell, Arthur, Sharpe, &c, aro notified
of their coining removal from office. This
must bo based on what tho Administration
knows of tbo Senator's intentions, though so
far ho has given no publio notice of the course
ho intcuds to pursue.
Colored people in some sections of tho
South nro carried away by tho Liberlan em
igration schemes. It is impossible that any
great number of these should go, and It
would bo n serious disaster not only to them
but to the employing class of the South if
there should be created among them, as
seems likely, a general excitement on tbe
It seems that somo idiot had a fear that
Governor Kemper, of Virginia, would not
bestow tho proper attention upon Mr. Hayes
and his Cabinet on their return, by tho way
of Richmond, from their Western trip. The
Governor promptly says that "nothing will
be omitted by him that Is duo by courtesy
or custom." Tho city government of Co
lumbia, South Carolina, has sent a cordial
invitation to Mr. Hayes to visit that city,
and thero is n report that ho will do so dur
ing the coming winter.
Thero is no longer any expectation that
Senator Morton will be present nt tho extra
session in October. This was from the first
the opinion of his Washington physician,
who, however, hopes the Senator can bo hero
during the winter.
AU things in Washington nre fast falling
into the lino of readiness for tbo assembling
of Congress next month. Real, active work
will not begin for twenty days yet, but pre
liminary steps are being taken in all direc
tions. Tho great commencement contest
will tako place over tho much vexed question
of the Speakership, and tho battle waged
over that coveted oflico will bo but the inau
guration of a series of like struggles for tho
coming session is to be a right stormy one,
