This is u resolution paused by the
House of liepreselitutives on tho I .'nil
day ot December, lHT.'i. ltwasofl'ered
by Mr. Springer, of Illinois, alter con
sultation with leading lriends of the

received the support and approbation
! of all parties. Men who quarreled bit
I terry upon all other political subjects
were ot one heart ami ono mind when
'it came to lie a question whether tho
custom established hy Washinton and
i other Presidents, of retiring after
; their second term, ought to be respec
! ted or could bo nul'oly departed from.
And now hero, lo wit, in the pages
f this JteritvK, comes Mr. Howe, of I
Wisconsin, and the part of Gen. Grant, j
for whom ho appears, denounces the
resolution aforesaid, impugns tbo doc-
trine embodied in it, and assails tho
integrity of its supporters in the most
violent manner. I am asked, "I'ndor
whioli king, JJoaoniao io i Rio iu
my concurionco f If not, what grounds
of oposition can I presumo to stand on?
Believing in the resolution of the Rep.
rescntatives, and dissenting from Mr.
Howes article, the readers of the
Jiecinc shall havo the why and whoro-
not becauso my individual opin
ions aro worth a rush, but becauso, on
a subject so important, truth ia entitled
to overy man's detenco; because this
I faith is shared, in our time, by the
most respectable citizens of all classes,
and because it is delivered to us from
a past generation strongly stamped
with the approbation of the best men
that have lived in all the ages,
A Presidont of the L nited Stales
may legully be elceted and re-elected
for an indefinite nnmher of terms;
there is nothing in tho Constitution to
forbid it; but thu two-term precedent
sot by Washington, followed by his
successors, consecrated by time, and
approved by all the public men of
the country, ripened . intu a rule
us cfliciont iu its operation as if it had
been a part of tho organic law. A
distinguished and very able Senator of
the liranl party, who uaU carcluily
inquired into thu state of popular felo
ing told mo in 1875 that tbe sentiment
which opposed a third term was strong
er than a constitutional interdict ; the
people would more readily assent to a
brcaidi of positive law textually in
serted into the Constitution than to
any disturbance of an unwritten rule
which they regarded as so aucrcd.
Certainly it was adhered to'by all
nartios, with a fidelity which some of
them did not show to tho Constitution
itself, down to 1HT5, when tho first at
tempt waa made to contravene it by
putting tip Gen. Grant for a third elec
tion. This was everywhere rccoived
by the runk and tilo with mutteriugs
of mutiny, and the most devoted par
tisans responded with curses which if
not loud were deep. 1 lie movement,
as Mr. Howe tells us, was mot by
solemn warnings from tho newspaper
pross, by strong protests from political
conventions, and finally by the resolu
tion quoted at the head ol this article,
which was a rebuke so overwhelming
that thn supporters of tho third term
candidate fled from him in tear, do
sorted him utterly, and left him without
a singlo voto in the nominating con
vention of bis own party.
Mr. Howe has no doubt that this
resolution was the solo causa of Grunt's
defeat in 1870. llo is equally certain
that it was all wrong.
However that may be, tho presont
intent of Mr, Howe is to rally the
routed third termers, and restore the
courage of the recreants by tbo assur
ance that the jobs and offices aro sale,
I'opulur veneration for tho men w ho
bniltupour institutions is the strongest
support for tbe institutions themselves.
It is not only a great good intrinsically,
but also the motive priuciplo to other
virtues which aro indispensable iu a
Government like ours. Anything,
thoreforo, which unjustly detracts
from their reputations ts a grevions
publio injury. This applies most espe
jiocially to Washington, who is ac
knowledged, not only by as, but by
every nation, tongue and kindred and
heaven, to havo beon incomparably the
greatest man that any country ever
produced. An indocent criticism npon
bim shocks and shames ns like blas
phemy. Nevertheless, we -would not
abridge the liberty of speech. A rag
ing third termer has as good a right to
sneer at tba Father of bia Country aa
an independent Hottentot baa to beat
Jefferson 'also cornea nnder review.
Ilia precedent, wbolber (rood or avil.
is at least "to the purpose." I n letters
addressed to the Legislatives oi Ver
mont, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania,
dated on the 10th of December, 1X07,
and printed in tho Avmra at Philadel
phia on the 19th of the same month.
b solemnly and publicly announced to
the country thai be would not disre
gard the precodont of his illustrious
predecessor hy accepting another elec
tion. His reasons are brief, simple
and clear, like all the production- ot
that master band, ana expressed in
language no transparently truthful and
dignified that no man of rightly con
stituted mind can read the paper with
out being stirred by the strongest
emotions of respect and admiration for
ita author. It compresses into a few
sentences all that needs to bo said in
liiror of tbe two term limitation, and
is at the same time a perfect answer
to all objections. Mr. llowe is fair
enough to tuke a passago 1rom it and
incorporated with his article ; it shines
there lilto a piece ot solid gold set in a
shnpclefls mass of lead. In these times,
when the subject ia up for renowod
consideration, this letter should be read
again and again ; every citiaen ought
to hare It by heart and teach it to bia
children, write it on the lintels of bis
door, bind it aa the frontlet between
bia eyes, and make it the subject of his
meditation day and night: '
"Dec. 10, 1S07.
" To the LrtjisltiOirf of Vermont :
"1 received in due season the address
nf the Legislature of Vormont, bearing
date thu 5th of XoTombor, 180(1, in
which, with their approbation of the
general course of my administration,!
tbey were so good a to express their
desire tout 1 would consent to ue pro

expiration ot my present lerm oi omce,
Entertaining us I do for tbe Legisla

Lain, nevertheless, they would approve
a delay which hud tor its object to
avoid a premature agitation of tho
public mind on a subject so interesting
as the election of a Chief Magistrate.
'That I should lay down my chargo
at a proper poriod is as much a duly
as to have borne it laithlully. If some
termination to tho services of tho thiol
Mugistiuie be not fixed by the Consti
tution, or supplied by practice, his of
fice, nominally for years will in fact
become for fife ; and history shows
how easily that degenerates into an
inheritance. Believing that a Repre
sentative tiovernmenl responsible at
short periods of election is that which
produces the greatest sum of happiness
to mankind, I loci it a duty to do no
uct which shall essentially impair that
principle ; und I should unwillingly be

"Truth also requires me to add that
I am sensible of that decline which ad
vancing years bring on, and, tooling
physically, 1 ought not to doubt their
mental effect, llappy if 1 am the first
to perceive and to obey tuis adinoni
tion of nature, and to solicit a retreat
from cares too great for the wearied

Similar expressions aro scattered all
through his correspondence as long as
be remained in oAlco, and after he re
tired to Montleollo ho continued to re
peat them. Jiii conviction deepened
as the years rolled on, that the princi
ple ot two terms was tbe only saloono,
and be constantly expressed his grati
tude for the universal approval nf his
conduct in adopting it.
But Madison also adopted the prin
ciple of his two predecessors, and .re
tired at tbe end of his second term.
Can nothing be urged against the
father of the Constitution to depreciate
bis authority or make his example
worthless? Was not ho also unpatri
otic and selfishly fond of bia farm ?
This could be as easily said, and is not
hardor to believe of him than of Wash
ington. And thero was Monroe, apparently
"so clear in his great oilleo" that rivalry
itself shrunk from his presence, and bo
was olectod a si-cmirl time without ef
fort, without opposition, without one
vote against him. Is it nothing lothe
purpose that he acknowledged the
value nf the Washington procedor.tr"
Concede that be, tho most popular of
Presidents, except tbe first omycould
not huve got a third term if be had
asked for it, then bis retirement proves
not only that the two-term practice
was right in his individual opinion, but
that the general jndgmonl ot tho na
tion was in its favor.
Gun. Jackson does not got oft easily.
We aro told that "there is ground for
believing that if Mr. Van Jiurcn bad
not secured the succession to General
Jackson the latter would havo been
retained for another term." This is
like tbe account we havo of Jefferson's
boom. It thero was any practice nf
Jackson's gront predecessors in which
be acquiesced with more doleronce
than another, ii was thoir voluntary
retirement after a proper poriod of
service. He was wholly opposed to
the indefinite continuance ot power in
the same bund, and ho expressed his
opinions on that, as on other subjects,
with an omphusis which left no chance
for misapprehension. The ground for
believing that "in a certain contin
gency be would have been retained
another term" ta not anything he ever
did or tbrebora to do nothing that he
ever wrote or spoke nothing that
ever was autboriied by him or by the
party which supported him, or by tho
representative of oithcr.
Such is the ontonme of Mr. Howe's
assault upon the line of great retiring
Presidents, Irom Washington to .lack
son inclusive. It must tie admitted
that, if the predetermined object of the
attack was to make himself ridiculous,
it is a marked guccoss ; but if it was
an effort in roal earnest to diminish
their fame, lower their standing, or
shake the confidence of tho country In
their virtue, then it is the flattest fail
ure in his essay and that ia saying a
1 think it may bo affirmed with some
confidence that Washington was not
unworthy of the profnnnd veneration
in which be is held in this country and
throughout the world ; that succeed
ing Presidents, when tbey followed his
(ootrtcps, not only acknoweldged hie
wisdom and patriotism, Lot showed
their own ; that the American people
of onr day, when they refused a third
term to a candidate who had already
served for two, wore not behaving like
cowards scared hy a aenaoleaa clamor,
but doing what a prudent regard lor
their true interests required ; that
when the Hons of Kopreacntatives, in
obodionce to tho anlversal sentiment nf

out distinction of party, put npon its
records and published to tbe world ita
solemn declaration that the example
of Washington must be adhered to in

We are not to set np jiolitieul dog

authority of names, however greut,

But a fundamental doctrine, self-ovi-dcntly

tho hardest of all things to support by
affirmative argument. Wo cannot help
but sympathize with tho indignation
of Pitt when bo thundered out his re
fusal to look at books or listen to logic
in defence of English liberty.
In thu matter before us, it should be
plain to every "reasonable creature in

executive power in ono band is not only
perilous to freo institutions, but per
fectly certain to destroy them. Some
fixed time there ought to bo whon tho

a false return, and nay for it out of

soon perceive opposition to bo nscloss
and accept tho situation ; elections
would be as a mero matter of form as
thoy wore in Homo when such consuls
as Aero and Domitian were elected
regularly every year under the super

H these were no more than rcmoto
poeibililies, prudence should guard ua
against them. Hut tbey are near prob
abilities ; the signs of the times warn
us that the peril to our institutions is
imminent ; the danger is already on
the wing. It is vain to remind us that
the President swears to preserve, pro
tect and defend the Constitution and
see the laws faithfully executed. That
is true ; and It is also true thnt. it
thoro be no perjury in tho caso, the
Constitution, laws and libertios of the
country aro sale. B'Jtlholast twenty

It is true that this presupposes a
people much degenerated and a magis
trate animated mainly by the vulgar
love of power for its own sake ; but
exactly such a conjunction of things
bas always been feared with good
reason, and hence comes the desire to
putevory check on that tendency to
'strong governmont which m now
manifesting itself in many quarters.
What is the romodyr How shall
we avert the dire calamities which we
are threatened' Tho answer comes
from tb graves of our fathers : By the

If history dona not teach this, wo
have rend it all wrong. In tho re
publics of ancient and modorn times
the t hid Magistrate was entrusted
with only temixvrsry power, und
always went out of office at tho end
ot a short period, fixed and prescribed
by law or custom. It was this, indeed,
which made the .tubstantial distinction
betwoen them and tho monarchies
around them. An unpunished trans
gression of tho customary limitation
wasumlormlylollowed by destruction.
Everywhere and always it was tho
the fatal symptom of decay the sure
forerunner of ruin. When Civsar re
fused to lay down his consulship, as
his predecessor had done at tho end of
a year, and was re elected time alter
time with tho acquiescence of the
Sonata und tliopooplo, all that was real
in Jioman Irecdom ceused to exist.
Two republics in France were brought
to an end in tho sumo way. Napoleon

became emperor, with the powers of

Moreover, tho two-term principle
ought to be adhered to by us and by
those who come allor us (if thoro were
no othor reason), simply because it
was tho practico of those who wont
before us. It is to the traditions of
the fathers that wo owe onr civilr.a

to be received as a vindication of tbe
two term rule. 1 Nor Is It necessary.
All tho support it requires was long

Tba practical objoct ol Mr, Howe's
article is to maae lien, tn-ant i'rosi
dent for another term. It is not for
an abstraction that he denounces the
two-term precedent and vilifies tho
Springer resolution. Tho rulo might
stand if Grant could he electod without
breaking it down. But Mr. Howe
thinks that th superiority of bis can
didate Is so very great that all author)-

ties which oppose hire should be dis -
reguided, and ho supports this opinion
by assertions so CJitiuvuirunt that we
only wonder how any man in his sober

lhat bo will serve tho turn as well as
if not butter than another, will, I think,
be admitted by all who attend to tho
reasons now presenllyto beonunieialcd.
In tho first place, a new monarch
(that is, one who has no hereditary
claims) ought to be an approved good
soldier, with skill loonforeoobodiunco;
otherwise bis sway could not lust long
over peoplo disposed to be tuibulent.
All, or nearly all, tho founders of royal
lines havo been military men from
Ni in rod downward, it is vain to deny
that General Grant's reputation for
military talent is well founded. It is
more than doubtful if any officer ol
our army could havo subjugated tho
rsoulh so completely oven with all
Grant's ail vantages, or taken so many
detents and still won a complete vic
tory in llio end. It is not, however,
what ho has done, but what he has
shown himself callable of doing, that
gives him his leading qualification for
