Sam Mr's Latter
Senator Sumner has vritten the
promised letter, in reply to oue ad
dressed him by a large number of
colored poeple, who ask his advice
upon the present political situation.
The letter is rather lengthy, which
precludes us from publishing it.
The tone of it is just what we would
look for from Mr. Sumner, and is ia :
accord with his liib as regards the
colored people, and, of course, could
not hare beta otherwise as addressed
African element He pronounces fer
Greeley unequivocally, and proves
him deserving the support ef the col
ored population as their life-long
friend with him, when Gen. Grant
> was nobody, and unknown, and who
only espoused their cause since he
(.Grant) left the democratic party and
joined the radicals to be elected presi
dent Mr. Susanor goea on in thia line
of argument in the most powerful and
convincing strain, and hit letter will
have a tremendous effect with the col
ored voters, for whom alone it is in
tended. He sbowa up Grant's moral
character, his promt-taking, nepotism,
and also his otter incapacity for the
high office which he fills, his outrage
ous San Domingo job, and the many
other discreditable acts of which he
has been guilty.
Addressed to colored men, we re
peat, Mr. Sumner could not bare writ
tea differently, te influence that class
of people, and advise them as to the
stand it is proper for them to take
in the pending presidential campaign.
Under these circumstances DO demo-
crat will quibble at Mr. Sumner's let-
ter and find fault with it. The color
ed people will be guided more by
Charles Sumner's advice, than by that
of any other living man, and the tone
of bis letter could net have been dif
ferent if those people are to be gained
te the support of Greeley.
Nffrtk Carolina
The old North state has repudiated
the white-house smoker. The demo
crat* and liberals, eo Thursday let
iust, made a cleaa sweep of this State,
bj a majority which promisee to roll
up to 2000. Last year North Caroli
na west radical by 10,000 majority.
The democrats elect Mem man gov
ernor and seven eat of the eight con*
grcemen, with a legislative majority
0f73, which aeon res a conservative
U. 8. Senator. This is a glorious result,
and a deserved rebuke of the Grant
dynasty at Washington, showing that
the people are tired of nepotism and
plundering. Grant tried every thing,
fair and unfair, money and promises,
to keep North Carolina in line, but
her people gave him en emphatic re
North Carolina is good for 20,000
majority for Greeley. Let democrats
and liberal republicans take fresh
courage, and give the Graat corrup
tionists a dab in Pennsylvania in Oct
ober by the triumphant election of that
good man, Chas. R. Bockalew.
And this is the way the Tribune puts
it to Grant's besom friend,the affidavit
maker, Carpenter.
Mr. C. 8. Carpenter is the person
who made an affidavit that be had
seen a positive declaration in fsvor of
the payment of peneiens to Rebel sol
diers in a letter from Horace Greeley;
that he road the letter several times
over, and was perfectly positive that
this was its tree purport and intent—
and who next wrote over his signature
that be was net all clear ia his recol
lection about it, that on the whole
probably be had formed his opinion
from what other people told him
about the alleged letter iather than
from what he saw himself, and that
until further notice he withdrew the
statements in hie affidavit! Since
than, we believe, be has turned one or
two more somersaults, and the last we
heard of him he was writing a person
al letter to Mr. Greeley, demanding
of that gentleman an autograph ans
wer to toll whether what Mr. Carpen
ter had sworn to was true, or whether
Mr. Carpenter's retraction of what he
had sworn to was true, —the answer
to be promptly forwarded in time for
bis next imne, and nothing abort of a
foment to be exeeptod.
This foolish person a mistake.
He has no business with Mr. Greeley:
but ho has with the District Attorney.
The trouble with him ie a matter of
peijury. Either he lied in his affidav
it,or he lied in his retraction ; and he
ia altogether the meet wonderful per
son ever heard of in this or any coun
try, for proposing to suspend the oper
ation of his affidavit until the man he
slandered decides for him the locality
of the lie. This is a mess of your own
making, young man. You got into
it yourself. Now pet out f
The picture of Grant, which the
Lewiaburg Chronicle floats at its head,
is an awful terry and sour looking
concern, and the North Carolina elec
tion does not seem to have gladdened
it a bit. Take it down, neighbor, and
pttt it in a corn-field to scare crews.

of silver. His habits are of tbe worst
possible kind, and his associates of

so well satisfied as when in company
with horse jockeys, smoking cigars,
drinking whiskey, and "talking hone."
Demoralization and corruption are
the order of the day in all sections of
the country, and these have their
origin Jin the White House and at
Long Branch. Examples set there
are followed by their parasites until
their influence has ramified every

Greeley will end this in a trice.

The Globe, the old radical organ of
Huntingdon, Pa., last week took down
the Grant <fc Wilson flag, and now
goes for Greeley. These things oc
cur all over the Union, and the old
white hat will take the white-house.
The stampede to Greeley is becom
ing so great that it is thought Grant
will be the next one heard from as di
claring for Greeley.
The liberal republicans and demo
crats, of Ohio, last week, united upon
one electoral ticket. This will knock
the lights out of the Grant concern in
the Buckeye state.
Spotted Tail, the Indian chief, is

notorious rebel guerilla leader.
The Clinton Republican mentions
that Wm. M'Kibben, of Porter twp.,

When in the city of New York a

huge system of frauds on the public

formost Democrats, as Tilden and O'

1). C. Forney Explains
The New York Herald of Monday,
contains a loug and severe review of
the political character and personal ca-j
reer of Senator Cameron from the pen
of I). C. Forney, the publishsr of the
Washington Sunday ( hrotiicle. Thie
article ia provoked by Senator Came
ron's allusions to the Forneys in a ic
cent interview with n Herald reporter.
I). C. Forney's loiter conclude* ns fol
lows :
When I was iu Harrhburg, a few
weeks ago, General Cumerou followed
inv brother, Wien Forney, and myself
to the railroad depot, while we were
on our way to I-aucaater city, declar
ing that ho wanted to see us both, and
iusisting that we call upon him. We
consented to do this, and when we
went wo fouud him in his library en
gaged in conclave with suiue of the
lowest and worst political characters
of Harrisburg—of the old Fagin school
Bill Sykee and Artftil Dodgers—in
stead of, as a statesmen should have
been engaged, and particularly the
chairman of the committee on foreign
relations, with his books, with Vattel's
law of Natious. At this solicited
meeting on the nart of General Came
ron, he proposed to roc to get Colonel
Forney to change his course of epposi
tiou, but I declined to interfere, re
minding Cameron of bow often I had
tried to make peace for him in that
quarter> and how repeatedly he had
violated its honorable compacts. 1
called to his recollection his conduct
at a private diuoer given by Colonel
Forney, just before tne republican na
tional convention, at which he, Sena
tore Chandler, Anthony, Speaker
Blaine, Secretary Kobeson, and others
were present, when he, Cameron, re
slied5 lied to a proposition to make An
rew G. Curtiu the caudidato for vice
president, that "if that were doue he
would knock hell into both Grant and
Curtin." 1 repeated, in reply to Cam
eron's urgent solicitude, my unwilling
ness to interfere between him and Col
onel Forney, while he cenfcaoed that
the Press was a power in Pennsylva
nia ; that John W. Forney oould have
anything he deeired if he only slopped
lighting Hartranft ; that they would
take Alleu off the ticket, and allow
Forney to name a successor "ludeed,"
said the wily old trickster, "we had
almost frightened Allen into declining
but he has been stiffened by some
body, and is now resolved to stick on
the ticket." To all this I merely re
plied that Colonel Forney knew his
own business, and could conduct his
own fights; but that so fsr as I was
concerned, I intended to stand by ray
own blood in all their honorable strug
gles far right and justice.
At this same dinner referred to his
abuse of Curtin and every other inde
pendent man in the state was so in
sulting to the hospitality of Colonel
Forney that even Cameron's personal
friends who were present protested,
and expressed surprise at his arro
gance and dictation. He even went
so far as to stats —backing it up with
a strong adjective—that no man should
be recognised politically in his state
without his consent; that he had con
trolled it so far, and could, if he de
sired, transmit the same power to his
I have made this communication al
ready too long, but give me room for
a few mors words.
The republican party is sure to be
' defeated in Pennsylvania in October,
. | and Simon Cameron's personal rule
■ jand political prostitutions are the caus
■ oe which will produce the disaster. It
. f is the only way for the people to g'
I rid of him and break up the vile com
| biuation which he calculates to fasten
on the state after he [descends to his
* grave. It is the only escape from his
Eollutions and the plunderiogt of tbooe
! e has trained as his followers. It is
the only way to light up the dark pla
' ces in the financial aflkirt of Pennsyl
vania ; to cleanse its auditing office;
j to fix proper guards around its traasu
. I ry, and prevent its chief magistrate
, from being made a vassal of the clan
. Cameron. A republican defeat at this
, | time, I admit, is a fearful venture, but
r | the tremeodous influences demanding'
, it in Pennsylvania are like the knife of
J the surgeon, which cuts deep into a rot
, | ten part to save an entire body frem
II festering corruptien and death. I re
joice to feel, therefore, that the people
of Pennsylvania are moved by such a
spirit, and the people of the whole
country will be glad when this oorrupt
ring is sent to the grave of Tammany.

The Reruha of the War MuM bo Edab

Boston, August I.—The rumors of
the defection of General Banks from
the support of Grant and Wilson are.
confirmed by the following letter :
Borrow, July 31.— Dear Sir : I|
have the honor to acknowledge by this
note, in addition to our conversation,
to address the citizens of Lynn onThurs
day morning in support of tha re-elec
tion of General Grant and the policy
of his administration. No invitation i
could have greater weight with me
from any part of the country, nor from
any portion of my follow citizens, and |
it gives me great pleasure to assure 1
you that nothing could be added to 1
your suggestions as a representative of !
the citizens of Lynn to induce me to ac- '
cede to the request. Their kindness to
memanyyears since is a continuing life \
remembrance, and nothing would i
give me greater satisfaction than to !
renew the associations with thsm, but i
I regret to say that I am not in ac- <
cord with them in regard to the presi- 1
dentin! canvass. Against my wishes •
and my personal interests I am oom- I
polled to believe and to say that per
petuation ef the present policy of the j
government is not for the advantage of)
the country and that it will not tend' 1
to establish its former good and *
prosperity nor to promote the inter- i
est* of any class of citizens. No per- '
sooal feeling of any form orjcbaracter \
enters into this judgment. is in r
view of general principles and public i
interests alone that I am led to this
conclusion. The uniting of the mass- r
as of the people of all parties, sections "
and races in support or the ground re
suits of the war is indispensible to the •
permanent establishment and general i
recognition of those results. It can J
be secured by no other means. We i
shall all be forced to this conolusion 1
sooner or later. This united action
upoa this basis has been the hope of '
my life. I fervently desired it dor- '
ing the war and in the reconstruction '
of the states after the war. I believe t
it is now tendered in good faith in the
Domination of Mr. Greeley, and for '
one I cannot reject it. It was what I
desired. Its consummation, although f
sudden and startling, does not alarm I 1
me. My duty to myself and my i
country require me to' give him my s
support. I cannot advocate before *
your friends a different course, when £
neither my judgment nor my heart 0
approves. It grieves me most deeply
to separate myself in thought or act £
from any one of those with whom I tl
have been so long associated, to whom f
lam BO greatly indebted ; but I be
lieve that the result wjlj justify my b
notion in giving to tbe country peace

the Hnltiiuuie nomination, in reply to
the letter of the committee eppointed
to notify htm thereof:
NWW YORK, July 18.— Ueulletucu :
Upen mature delilrtralion it aeema fit
that 1 ahould give to your letter ef the
10th iuet, tome further and fuller re
sponse than the batty unpremeditated
worda io which 1 acknowledged end
accepted your nomination at our
meeting on the 12tb. That your con
vention anw fit to accord ita higheat
honor to one who ha I been prominent
ly nod pointedly oppueed to your par
ty in lb* corneal and sometime* angry
courteveraiee of the leal forty*yeera te
essentially noteworthy.
That many of you origtanly believ
ed that the liberal renublicana ahould
preeent another candidate for Pram
dent, ami would mere readily have
united with ua in aupport of Adama,
Trumbull, IHi via or Brown, ia well
jtnowu. 1 owe ray adoption at Balti
more wholly to the fact that 1 had al
ready been nominated at Cincinnati,
and that a concentration of format on
auy new ticket had been proved im
Gratified aa 1 am at your concur
rence in the Cincinnati nominations,
certain aa I am that you would not
thua havo concurred had you uot
doomed me upright and capable, I find
nothing in the circumatance calculated
to inflame vanity *r nouriah aclf-cou
ceit. But that your convention aaw
fit in adopting the Cincinnati ticket,
to reaffirm tbe Cincinnati platform, ia
to me a to u roe of the pro found eat sat
isfaction. That body waa cooalrain
ed to take thia important atep by no
party necemity, real or aupnoaed. It
amy have acoepted the candidate* ef
the liberal republicana on ground* of
ita own, or it might have presented
them, aa the firat whig convention did
Harrison and Tyler, without adopting
anr platform whatever.
That it cbuae to plant itaelf deliber
ately by a vote nearly unanimous, up
on the fblleat and clearaat enunciation
of principle*, which area! once inooo
leatibly republican and amphatically
democratic, gives a truatworthy assur
ance thait a new and more auepicious
era ia drawing UJMQ our loug distract
ed country, some of the beat years
and beat iflhrt* of my life were devot
ed to a struggle against chattel sla
very, a struggle none the lees earnest
or arduous because respect for oouati
tutiooal obligations constrained me to
act for the moet part oa the defensive
in rebalance to (be diffusion ratlier
than in direct efforts fbr the ealiuUion
of human bondage.
Throughout moet of tboee years my
1 vision was uncheered aod my exertions
were rarely animated by even to much
j at a hope that I should live to tee my
country peopled by freemen alone.
The affirmation by roar ooavenuop of
| the Cincinnati plalii rm is a meet eon
elusive proof that not merely is sla
very abolished, but that its spirit is ex
tinct ; that, despite the protests of a re
| spectable but isolated few. there re
! mains among us no party and no form
' idable Interest which regrets the ever
; throw or desires the re eetablioament
of human bondage, whether in letter or
|in spirit. I am thereby (ratified in
my hope and trust thai the first cen
tury of American independence will
net cloee before the grand elemental
truths on which its rightfulness was
baaed by Jefferson and the continen
tal coogreas 0f1776, will be no longer
regarded at glittering generalities,
but will bavs become the universally
accepted and honored foundations of
our political fisbric. I demand the
prompt application of ikoee principles
to our existing condition. Haviog
done what I could for the complete
emancipation of the blacks, I now in
sist on the full enfranchisement of my
white countrymen.
Let me my that the ban has just
been removed from all but a few hun

gibility to office cam be of very little
consequence. My view contemplates
not the hundred* prescribed, but the
millions who art dromd the right to be
ruled and represented by men of ibeir
unfettered choice. Proecription would
be absurd if these did not wish to elect
the very men whom they are forbid
den to choooe. I have a profound re-
Erd for the people of that New Eng
id wherein I was bora and in whose
common achcob IFW taught. I rank
