'Letter froth. Peter Cooper
,To Horatio Seymour.
• NEW Yofix, Aug. 13, 1868
To Iron _Horatio' Seymour :
MY DEAR SIR—In the last letter I
had the honor to address to you, I had
the pleasu re to thank yon for the prompt
answer to aformer letter, and for, the
assurance I received:that "we agreed
in the end to bo realized, namely, the
restoration of the Union and the pre
servation of the Constitution." You
will recollect that I then stated I was
so deeply impressed with the absolute
necessity of maintaining the Union and
the Constitution that I desired to see
all the powers that God and nature
had given to us brought into requisi
tion to save our country from being
dissevered and made the sport of for
eign and domestic Saracens.
I feared then, as I fear now, the
danger of our being drawn into
by men who have no faith in a real
democratic form of gbvernment. In
that letter I stated that I was then,
and I have still continued, to the 78th
year of my ego, to be a firm believer in
a truly democratic republican form of
government—l mean a government
founded on these eternal principles of
•truth and justice which our fathers
declared were self evident, namely
"That all men are created equal; that
they are endowed by their Creator
with certain inalienable rights; that
among these are life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness; that to secure
these rights, governments are institu
ted among men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the gov
In the very first words of the Con
stitution, formed by our fathers, it is
declared that ''We, the peoplo of the
United States, in order to form a more
perfect union, establish justice, insure
domestic tranquility, provide for the
common defence, promote the general
welfare, and secure the blessings of lib
erty to ourselves and our posterity, do
ordain and establish this Constitution
for the United States of America.".
Our fathers, in forming for us this
Constitution, believed that they had
embodied in the forms of law, the
highest wisdom, virtue and 'intelli
gence of a whole people. They meant
to make the wisdom, the virtue, and
the intelligence of the people the means
to insure all the blessings required to
make us a nation with all the powers
necessary "to establish justice," and
"to promote the general welfare." To
enable the people to do this in the
most convenient manner, they declared
in the first article of the Constitution,
that , "All legislative powers herein
granted shall be - vested in a Congress
of the United States, which shall con
sist of a Senate and House of Repre
They then describe the mode and
manner by which the people's_ repre
sentatives shall be chosen, who are to
make all laws which shall be necessary
and proper for carrying into execution
the powers of Congress, and all other
powers* vested by the Constitution in
the Government of the United States,.
or in any Department thereof. Among
these powers there is nothing plainer
than the intention' of the' framers of
the Constitution fo vest in the people's
representatives the right to suspend
the writ of habeas corpus whenever in
their judgment "the public safety may
require it," to suppress rebellion or re
I have been led to address this letter
to you; as standing at' the head of the

I continued to act so long as I believed
it was laboring to promote the gieat

when I became convinced that the
Democratic party, with which 1 had
been so long connected, was lending
its power and influence to sustain men
and measures that had so, far pervert
ed the Constitution of our country as
to deny the rights of mannood: to four
millions of.human beings—and when
I saw that I was acting with a party
which was lending , its influence to
mon and 'measures that were raising up
in our country the vilest form of •an
aristocracy—an aristocracy that claim
ed it as a, right that "property should
own labor," and claimed the right to
mix their blood with the black race,
and then sell their children to bo en
slaved with all their posterity, then I
consider it my . duty to ray country to
abandon a party that bad abandoned
the groat principles of truth and jus

horrors of a system that allowed a fa

had seven-eighths of white blood in his

the commencement of the war with
England to its close, feel that I have a
right to plead with my countrymen of

to beseech them by every consideration
that can move our manhood to consid
er carefully the dangers that threaten
us as a nation.
It has boon to me, for years, a source
of profound regret to find so many of
those, whom I have esteemed and hon
ored as friends, taking part with and
forming all kind of excuses for men
who have done all that was possible.to
destroy our Union ° of States.; and now
I regret to find those very friends call.
ing themselves Democrats; and : at the
same time, uniting with' those who
were leaders in the Rebellion, and stri
ving to aid them to build up what they
aro pleased to call "a White Man's go
vernment," by which they mean to
hold 4,000,000 . of human beings under
a ban or disqualification that will prove
as destructive to their happiness as the
slavery from which they have boon de
livered. I haie been at a loss to see
how a mind so elevated as yours could
for a moment consider it possible for a
democratic government to enact a
course of class legislation that would
make ono law for the white man and
another for the black man. John
Stuart Mill hss said with great propri
ety that "There is no true democracy
where large classes of a community are
denied equality of political rights."—
lie further declares that "Every Gov
ernment which permanently divides
the people into a governing part, and
a governed part, is an aristocratic Gov
ernment, by whatever name it may be
I find that the very mon who profess
so much concern for the preservation
of the Constitution, are now most ear
nestly laboring to make proselytes for
a white mates government, which can
only be had by legislating for a el:lasi--
thereby adopting a principle that is at
war with the very letter and spirit of
the Constitution which they profess so
much to revere. Such a course is as
inconsistent as the profession and prac
tice of President Johnson. Ile de
clared at one time that "treason
against the Government is the highest
crime that can bo committed," and
that those engaged in it "should suffer
all its penalties." "Treason," ho • said,
"must be made odious, and traitors
must be punished and impoverished."
flu went so far as to say, "They must
not only he punished, but their social
power must bo destroyed; if not, they
maintain an ascendancy, and may
again become numerous enough for
treason to become respectable. He
said, "After making treason odious,
every Union man should be remunera
ted out of the pockets of those who
have inflicted the great suffering on
Ile then said, "I hold it a solemn
obligation, in every one of these States,
where the Rebel armies have been beat
en back, or expelled, I care not how
small the number of Union men may
be, if enough to man the ship of State,
I hold it,to be a high duty to protect
and secure to them a republican form
of government until they gain strength.
They must not be smothered by,inches.
In reference to a Convention to re
store the States, he asked : "Who
shall restore them ? Shall the men who
gave all their influence and means to
destroy the Government? Aro they
to participate in the great work of
ro•organizing the Government, who
brought this misery. on the States ? If
this be so, • then it is said in truth that
all the precious blood of our brave sol
diers and officers will have been lost,
and all our battle-fields will have been
made memorable in vain." • . • •
He then asked, "Why all this car;,
nage P.' and said "it was that treason
might be put down and traitors'pun
ished." He said "traitors should take
a hack seat in the work of restoration.'"
He said "the traitor has ceased to be a
citizen, and in forming rebellion has
become a public enemy, and has lost
his right to vote with loyal men."
Lie said that the great plantations
of the traitors "must be seized and di
vided into small farms and .sold .to
honest, industrious men ;" also, "The
day for protecting the lands and ne
groos of these authors'of rebellion is
past." _ ,
To cap the - climax of inconsistency
with all that ho •has since done 4,nd
tried to accomplish, he said that he had
been deeply pained by some things
that had come under his observation.
Ho said, "We get men in command
who, under the influence of flattery,
fawning and caressing, grant protep•
'flop *to rich traitora, while the poor
Union man stands• out in the cold."
He went on and said that "traitors can
get ludrativa employment while loyal
men are pushed aside."
He said, in relation• to reconstruct
ing the Southern States, that "We
must not be in too much of a burry.
It is better to let them reconstruct
themselves, than to fore° them into it."-,

I am sorry to see iu your speeches
an effort to prejudice the laboring
population with the statetnentthat thp
Government is introducing a system
of unjust and unequal taxation.
It is certain that our Government
could never stand in the presence of
such laws as prevailed thronghopt the
Southern States before the Rebellion;
laws that made it a crime-to "unbind
the heavy burden, and let the captive
go free;" laws that made it a crime to
teach the poor helpless slave to read
and write, fearing that a knowledge of
the Declaration of Independence, that
declares the unalienable right of every,
man to his life, his liberty, and the pur
suit of happiness, would make him un
willing longer to remain a slave.
To talk of such a syete' and such
laws as have prevailed at the South
being democratic, is to talk of a living
body without an animating spirit.
The Cincinnati Catholic Telegraph,
the official organ of the Catholic church
in the West, has said, with great pm
priety, that "the interest of humanity
and the welfare of white labor, in par
ticular, aro involved in the question .
of slavery more than in any other, and
it is the duty of men to prepare theip
minds conscientiously that they may ,
as far as possible, maintain what
hest for the people. Every one ac
knowledges that slavery is an evil. No
man who is free would ever consent to
be a slave. It is abhorrent to his na
ture. No ono can allege any right to
reduce a human being to that misera
ble condition. It is detestabfe to mind
and heart. And moreover ho who re* :
duces a free man to slavery is excom
municated by the Catholic Chureb.—:

It has boon with more than ordinary
sorrow that I find among the errors Of
your late speech other grave ehargeq
against tho Republican party.'
You say it has adopted "a policy of
hate, of waste, and of military despot
ism," in all of which you are as much
in error as you are when you state
that the Republican party has expen :
ded.5500,000,000 of the taxes drawl}
from the people of this country "to up-.,
hold a despotic military authority, ado
to crush , out the life of the States;.!
The facts, as shown by Mr. Blaine
Congress, are that only a very arnal) .
part of the amount you name was ex
pended in maintaining the authority
of the Government over the 'Rebel.
States. Let , us unite to frown dowiit'
that spirit of rebellion .that, found en : ,-

sovereign capacity and deliberate with
men who were then in, active rebellion',
putting forth:all their efforts to eve :
throw the Governinent by force. •
You charge the Republican party
with "proposing to deprive the people
of the South of their right to vote . for
Presidential Elseters." You then-say
that "the first bold steps are taken
destroy the right of suffrage!' ;
This reasoning is unaccountable in
view of the fact that the Republican
party has been constantly making et
