Grant could be beaten.
In conventions not run by machinery,

llAYAUD'S PEACE SI'EECII.
Since the name of Thomas F. Bayard has
been prominently mentioned as a Democrat
ic candidatetfor the Presidency, his enemies
have been seeking to find somctbiog in his
record that would weaken his chances, and
have finally hit upon a speech delivered by
him at Dover, Delaware, on June 27, 1801,
at a Peace Convention. In this speech he
"Take tho proposition of war of horrid,
civil war, my countrymen! Grant to the
Northern arms complete success. Suppose
that c?ery Southern city be reduced; to
ghastly ruin, every Southern home desolated
and every Southern man slain or made cap
tive. This is the evident completcst realiza
tion of that dream of conquest so horribly
satisfactory to those minds who control the
Northe'rn press. But what then? Will a
union with slaves and the possession of a
desert satisfy ? You do not and cannot
expect love and aid in times of your neces
lity from those States you have so cruelly
subdued. It is too plain, therefore, that
your success in such a war would ,be tnosl
fatal injury to yourselves.
And is such a war a iiecessity for the
peace and happiness of the United States ?
For half a century we have lived at peace
with Great Britain, with her Canadian pos
sessions upon our northern border. Upon
the South, Mexico holds her government
with no threats of trouble to our citizens.
Why. then, may not two American confed
eracies exist side by side without conflict,
each emulatine the other in tho progress of
civilization? The coterminous kingdoms ol

I be a ve with the ate Senator Douglas,
who has before been quoted to-day, that 'a
war is disunion, certain, final, inevitable.
und, so believing, I oppose it.' "
His address was an earnest plea for
peace because he honestly believed that the
result ofa civil war would be ruinous to the
whole country. He expressed no sentiments
but those of a patriot whose dearest wish
was the Bafety of bis nation. If he was
mistaken, so were thousands of others whose
loyalty was never questioned.
The Philadelphia Chronicle-Jferalda&jai
"If Mr. Bayard was distrustful, bo was
the great body of the American people.
Right here in Philadelphia, which afterward
went so heartily into the war, the coufllct
was denounced as a cruel venture for which
there was no necessity, and In obedience to
Mayor Henry's call the people pledged Phil
adelphla to do what she could to make the
Union comfortable to the South. There
was also in New York and New Jersey a
strong oppesition to the war, as indeed
there was generally uutll we had got well
into the din and smoke of it. Nowhere was
there a stronger anti-war feeling than
among the best men iu Washington.
If we were to go further in this line we
could fill our pages for a month with utter
ances quite as peaceful as those of Mr.
Bayard, and from men who subsequently
took high offico under the Republican party,
In view of these facts it Is as mean as It
will bo futile to try to damago Senator Bay.

Icavllle, Ualncs' Mill and Malvern and It
nasl itz John Porter who commanded ll-o
corps In all thefo battles. It Is needless to
speak of them being among the most can-
gulnary of the war. It was tho Fifth Army
Corps who took possesion ot Malvern Hill
,) ,u,i t tlirougli hours that by friend
iH1j foe uavo i,,,, ,cemeJ among tho most
terrible lu the history of the war. A series
of attacks, ku5h as has not been witnessed
In any preceedlng battles, left Porter where
the enemy found him In possession of Mal
vern. When night fell upon the day of
carnago the slope of Malvern Hill ran red
with the blood of the battle. I have hcarJ
scores of solldrs, Federal and Conlederate,
.y,thatfrom the summit to baso tho hill-side
was covered with the dead and dying. Cer
tain it 1, sir,;it was Fllz John Porter's corps
that made that last and most terrible bat
tle of tho campaign of the peninsula. No won
der that his commanding general nked that
the highest position then vacant should le
liven to him I No wonder that !.o should
have said that if still higher positions
were known to tho public service ho would
recommend General Porter for all that tho
Government could give hlml Tho Fifth
Army Corps had among its commaudeis,
under Porter, men whose names are famil
iar to every American. McCall, Reynold,
Meade, Iluchauan, Morcll, n arren, Sjkes,
md liutterfield were the officers who held
command of its divisions and brigades. It
is quite probable that this narration of the
personal services of (ijner.il Porter, antece
lent to the time when he stood charged
with a foul crime against his comrades anil
his country, It is but the repetition ofa story
well remembered by intelligent men It
will not be forgotten that the men who
fought at Malvern, and the officer who com
manded them, were the same men aud the
same officer against, whom a few weeks la'
ter, was charged "shameful disobedience,"
"retreating Iromthe presence ol the enemy,'
being within sound of a raging battle,and,
believing that comrades were being driven
back and defeated, shamefully left them to
Tho Senator went on to speak of public
dlsappoinment and dissatisfaction which
greeted the finding of the court-martial.
When General Porter s conviction was an
nounced careful readers of the proceedings
in his trial stood confounded at the unex
peeled result. He had been charged with
the most Infamous crime known under the
laws of enllchtened governments. Stripped
of all surplusage, the charge that he a ood
confronted with was that of treason. Reck
oned by degrees, no grade of treasun could
have been more despicable in form ormalig
nant in character than that"on which he
was arraigned. To his own amazement,and
to thousands of loval men who knew the
evidence in his case, he was convicted ot
the monstrous crime with which he had
been charged. And then what 1 Adjudged
of this foul crime against himself, he was
8entence(1 And, sir, what was the sen
teuce? That he should die the death ofa
traitor? That he should be shot to death
by the cuns of his Boldiers men of the
corps wuose honor and reputation ne nau
betrayed J that by their hands he should be
pierced with all the bullets that could bo
fired into a traitors miserable body? No I
No such sentence. Although if the charges
had been true in part such a death or any
death that could have been measured cut by
ingenious cruelty would have been too
small s punishment for his offence ; this was
not thojudgemnt and sentence of the court!
The iudement that, beinc convicted of
treason, ho should simply be dismissed from
the Army of the United States. And so,
Mr. President, it came to pass when the
people of the country read that Fitz John
Porter, charged, ..tried and condemned of
treason, was sentenced only to dismissal
from the army of the United Slates, a ques
tion arose in the public mind, infinitely
more significant, all-pervading and persist
ent than anytliiui; that the ingenuity of
General Porter or his friends could have in
vented, aking: "Was ever finding so grave
with punishmentso totally inadequate?"
From the day the charges were first pub
lished, but one opinion possessed plain, lion
est minded people, and itwasthatjustico de
manded either his acquittal or his death,
Then followed his appeals to the Executive
not to have his sentence reversed aud an
nulled; not that he should be reinstated by
Executive order; not to blot out, at the in
stlgation of personal or political influence
by the Executive mandate, the record of his
alleged offense. No! through all these a
peals, some of them as touching as it is pos
sible for pen to write, there is but one cry
"simply to be heard!" simply "to
be heard!" Such was this brave man's con
fidence in the strength and justice of his
cause, and such his unbiased confident rli
ance in the unbiased judgment of his coun
trymen, that he asked no other favor, made
no other supplication than to be heard
That single cry, bravely answered at last

ates that tbt. Republican candidate for Pres
ident, though clearly and unquestionably
elected next November, will need to be a
"strong man," with the people at his back,
to enable him to take his seat. The cogen
cy of such logic is not entirely evident.

Mr. Springer having reported to the
House the views of tho majority of the com
mittee on elections, declaring In tho con
tested election case of ex-Governor Curtln
against Yocum, that the election was null
and void and ought to be sent back to the
people, the Greenbackers are making a des
perate effort to defeat the report of tho com
mittee and save Yocum. Tho minority re

a Republican. From present Indications It

The Parly r the Individual.
Unquestionably thcro is forco In the nrgu
ment that a candidate who was elected and
after the election deliberately swindled out
of tho office to which ho was fairly chosen
deserves tho sympathy of the peplo. Hut
It must be borne In mind that under our
republican system the office Is not tho prop
erty of the incumbent but Is simply n tem
porary trust delegated by tho people. The
President of the Unlltd States for Instance
does not hold his office for his own beutfit
nor In his own right but for the well belug
of his fellow cltlziiis and In trust for thuse
who elected him. Tho "dlvino rlclit of
kings" has no placo In our form of govern
ment. Tho President Is tho mere agent of
tho peopln for tho execution nf the federal
laws and therefore If ho Is unjustly deprived
of his offico the people rather than their
agent are the chief sufferers by the wrong,
Mr. Tllden some lime ago expressed this
view ol his own case In very clear and de
cided terms. If it wereotherle, If In or
der to vindicate the right It wero necessary
to Insist on a re-election of tho defrauded
agent.tho Democratic party would In justice
be obliced fust to renominate George 11.
McClellnn who was cheated out of the pres
Ideiicy in 1861 by fraudulent returns mirep
resenting tho vote of tho army, next to re
nominate Horatio Seymour, who in 1SGS
would certainly hive been chosen President
If the Southern Slates had not been ecu
trolled by military force, and lastly Samuel
J. Tllden who was the victim of the return
lug boards, and tho electoral commission
The same plea Is to be made in behalf of
each of these Illustrious men, hut their
grievances were borne alike by the people
and particularly by the party of whlcli.they
were the chosen representatives and expo
nents. The history of the Democratic party
since 1SC4 has been that ofa constant strug
gle agaiust tho usurpation of power and the
practice of fraud In elections by the
Republican party. The countin;-ln of
R. 1J, Hayes In 1870 was simply a
bold repetition of the chicane which was
successful in 1SG1 anddltrered only froutlio
fraud of 1SCS in the fact that It was accom
pllshed after the election while in the Sey
mour campaign military satraps used force
to prevent a fair election. Shall we then
undertake to redress the grievances nf the
several individuals formerly entrusted with
the standard of the party, or shall we rather
address ourselves to the vindication of the
wrongs of the party which ore also tho
wrjiies of the maioritv of the people? If
we could do both it would be a "consumma
tion nio.it devoutly to be wihed," Hut is it
not far better that tho party and the people
should be righted under a new standard-
bearer than that the cause of both the party
and the individual should bo lost by a blind
aud unreasmlng devotion to the person of
the swindled representative of the party in
former campaign? Our political allegi
ance lsde to the party rather than to any
individual. Our aim should be the success
ot the parly rather thjn to the personal ad
vancement of the personal interests of any
man. Our aspirants should be for the re-
B's,rtiim of democratic p.inciplei in the
administration of the government rather
than fur a mere revengeful redress of ihe
grievances of a former member of the party.

the potato alone Is the Irishman's sole and

Irishmen live on? On Indian meal. Well
the potato crops have filled here, have been
a complete failuro for the last four years;
but this year, of all, they were left undug,
as not being worth the labor nf turning ii

and Indian meal they havo no money to pro

Indian meal with the shopkeepers for the
last fotiryiars; but this year the shopkeepers
have refused to give them any, and hence
they arj starving. No cattle, no corn, no
potatoes to eat, no money to buy Indian
meal, no credit, so die they must. May
God help them, poor starving creatures! The

The report of the Auditor General for the
fi-cal year ending November 110, 1S79, was
made public on Tu- day. It is the most
thorough and comprehensive document of
the kind ever issued Ire in the auditing de
partment of the State government. It gives
full details of the revenues 71111! expendi
tures of the State for tho last fl-cal year,
with statements showing the asses-meiit of
State tax in the several counties, with the
population aud number of taxable inhabi
tants of each county, the several public
loans with rates of interest and when reim
bursable nnd payable, tho funded aud tin

taxable corporations and limited partner
ships registered under act uf Juue 7, 187U,
etc. The report also stales that new corpo
ration dockets have been opened, with names
of corporations alphabetically arranged, and
that a system of book-keeping has been
adopted by which every dollar of the re'
ceipts and expenditures of public moneys

ment during the same period were $3,607,

A Clalarvoyant's Failure
The hamlet of Lackawaxen on the Dela
ware River, about thirty miles from Port
Jervls, was a scene of great excitement a
few days ago. On New Years Day, a young
man named Shannon, while at work on tho
aqueduct, of tho Delawaro nnd Hudson Ca
nal Company fell into the Delaware mver
n n i 1 w n i ! rn iv n cm 1 . All efforts to find the
body wero unavailing. As a last resort the
mothers of the young man opened correspondence-with
n clairvoyant in Pott Jervis,
and he Informed them that ho could find the
body; but they must send him some gar
ment which the young man had worn and
hlch had not been washed. An old hat
was rent. Iho clairvoyant then lnlormeu
tho brothers that tho body was lying one
hundred nnd icve nty-five yards below the
aqueduct, nnd fifteen fet from the shore,
It was supposed that the clairvoyant nau
never been to Lackawaxen and his descrip
tion ol the locality was thought to be so ac
curate that It was conceded by many that ho
was possessed of supernatural powers. A
.' .. .. . , ...
searc'i was made in mo river uui mo uuuj
was not found.
This did not seem to weaken the tallh of
Iho brothers In the ability of tho professor
to find the body. A few days ago,
hannon, one of the brothers visited Port
lervls, nud by appointment met the clalr-
votaut, and Ihe latter airrfid to tinn tne
body fir $60. This was agreed to. The next
lay iho clairvoyant nnd a companion went
lo Lackawnx -n, and were met by an im
mense crowd of people, who hud beni at
Ira'jted to the river by the report that a
clairvoyant was coming to fin I the body.
Tho "Professor" and his companion stepped
upon tho ice, ami soon the former was in
'condition to be in communication with the
uptrmitiiral. He told the crowd that the
body was 20 feet up tho river on a lino from
where ho sat, The distance was mea-ured,
tho ice cut, and search made In the water,
but no body was found,
Again ho went off into the land of drtnms
and while in this condition described the
scenes nt the drowning, haw the body had
been carried around by the eddy nnd that it
was finally lodged directly beneath where
they sat. The crowd gave way, the ice was
cut, the "Professor" ami others peered down
into the water, but no body could be seen
Another effort was made to discover the body
but without success. Just then a passenger
train was seen approaching the depot from
tne west. The two men started on a run for
it, and before the bewi'dered crowd could
recover from its surprise, the clairvoyant
and his companion were whirled PortJer-
visward by the fast moving train. A more
indignant crowd than that deluded one it
would be hard to find.

At the meeting of the American Insttute
of minim: engineers in New York the other
day, the President, Rckley II. Coxe, of this
county, congratulated the members upon
the nourishing condition of the industries
connected with their profession but regretted
the result of the prosperity that made
necessary tho absence of many prominent
members The first paper read was by E.
I I.oisenu on "the successful manufacture
of pressed fuel at Port Richmond, Philadel
phis." A huge fire In tho grate gave evi
dence of Iho qualities of this fuel, speci
mens of which In egg-shaped lumps were
examined with interest, Tho fire was
started without the use of kindling wood.
The paper explained tho process of maun
facture, tho difficulties encountered, aud
the measures adopted to obviate them.
The elements nf this fuel aro Ml per cent,
of coal dust, nnd 0 per cent, of pitch, the
latter being used to cement the dust, The
fuel lasts as long as ordinary anthracite,
and does not produce clinkers. Thirteen
tons of it are now produced each hour.
Reference was made to tho difficulty of
obtaining a supply of coal dust, as the coal
men were not inclined to supply the means
of making a fuel to compete with coal
I!nt confidence was expressed that it would
soon appear to the advantage of coal men
to erect machines for the manufacture of
pressed fuel and mako n a lending industry.
