Now, what we object to Is, that tho
editor of thc.otrnfl(, in publishing tho
loiter, omitted what wo havo put in
"caps." Among newspaper men this
is considered a very dirty trick, and
tho writer has tho right to cowhide an
oditor for such work provided ho has
tho nccossary muscle.
A TmtiLMNn Stout. Among tho
vory affecting stories told of tho early
lifo of Jimmy Garfield, going tho
rounds of the Republican prosa, is the
following, which we re-print, admon
islting our readers to prcparo to shed
whatever tears they may have to spare
for an emorgoncy liko this:
When SJ a youth h. t.ught aohool In Ohio, h.
sit a. poor that ba had only nna suit, and tbat ol
jean. Toward the aod or tb. term, the troweere
became vary tbia, and wbil. bending down one

will forget all about such little things as tbat."
Those of our rcadors who wont to
school about tho same lime will ro
member that tho method of correction
in uso was to draw the pupil across
the knee and apply the remedy to the
prominent part, and this doubtless ex
plains tho woakness of the tcachorV
trowsers in that particular point. It
indicates further that when a youh
committed a misdemeanor ho was not
allowed to "lot it go as a loan," but
suffered for it, which also may be pro
photic. And if James Abraham should
now go on tho stand and swear that
bo "never owned, received or agreed
to rccoivo," a pair of darned pants,
what would bo left of tho story, any
way f Lewistocn Sentinel.
Paoroi'ND Disoust! Yes, those aro
good words when uttorcd at tho right
time and in tho right place. Tho con
duct of the Conlodorato Brigadiers is
viewed with profound disgust bv tho
Radical brothron. When thoso "red-
handed rebels" insisted on voting some
830,000,000 of pension arrearages to
tho boys in bluo, tho Radical soul was
ponotrnted, permeated, perforated and
saturated with alarm. But now those
"traitors who Vtsvo captured the Capi
tol" bavo done a mora awful deed than
voting to tax themselves 18,000,000
for tho benefit of tho Northern sol
diors. They havo seized on ono of tho
boys in bluo, ono of the bravest men
bo fought them on the balllo-fields
of the war of the Rebellion, and arc
going to seat bim in tho White Houbo,
when tho present fraudulent incum

days for the Radical brothron.

William A. Wallace, United Slates
Senator from tho old Keystone State
of tho Federal arch.
Scrupulously honest in -all the rela

the great principals which underlie the
foundations of the Government, tho
purity of his public and private record
his untiring vigiluucu, his devotion to
and inatchli aa vindications of his party,
his advocacy of men of integrity, of
character and tried honesty to fill posi
tions ol trust, possessing tho mental
powers of a Cromwell and moving with
tho measured tread of corps of disci
plined infantry in the execution of his
matured plans,' have justly entitled him
to tho distinguished appellation of tho
Wellington of tho great Democratic
In bis urilliant services in tho united

phtyod such masterly ability in moot

and fewer still have achieved such
signal triumphs in tho adoption of
measures calculated to give reposo to
the institutions of tho oountry and re
store tho principles and confidence of
tho bettor days of tbo Republic. But
few men have struck tho enemy moro
stunning blows or accomplished more
in unearthing of such frauds aa have
shocked, nay, almost parulyzod the
patriotic sensibilities of every man who
has at heart the perpetuity, honor and
glory ot his country. But few men
have risen to tho snblimo height of

fatheis and heroes ol the revolution
who gave us tho power and splendor

It is bis success as a great organizer
where his unrivaled powers as a party
leader is best demonstrated and most
to bo admired. With tho profound
deliberation and foresight of i Carnot
are his plans arranged and matured
ana with equal precision ana skill aro
they put into execution.
In tho great fight at the Cincinnati
Convention, the crowning victory of
his life, when asked who was his second
choice, ho replied, "Hancock," and
when further interrogated as to who
would be his third choice, his reply
was equally significant, when he again
replied, "Hancock." It was a confi
donee in bis position, bis power to con
centrate- and hold his forces that gavo
him tho prestige of the first day's

Murst under tho sun of Austorlitz, that
took the Convention curly in tho gen

thus Bocured bis choico and that of his
honored Commonwealth and gave to
tho country a hero, a patriot and states-
man, ono whoso name killed all divl

land with rejoicing hope of a now

When wo behold a man of such ad

It seems to he impossible for a Radi

delihorato falsities history:
"This party (tho Democratic) was
swept from power in 1HC0, because it
was unuor the control ol tbo South,
and tho country found tho predomi
nance of Southern sentiments,"
Nuw Bee bow plain a lulu will put
lllo falsehood down. Tho historical
fact is that the Democratic party de
feated itself in J8C0 by dividing into
two distinct factions. The joint vote
ot the peoplo for Douglas and Breck
inridge, the two Democratic candidutee
for President, was much greuler than
that given to Abraham Lincoln. .The
popular volo in 1SI10 stood thus:
A. Lincoln, reu u I.SnA.H&l vote.

was in a minority of 011,140 votes in

This is about tho shabbiest card that
ever came from a Stato Chamber, and
for an old rooster liko the aiiAM, Super
intendent, etc., to issue, is a sin. The
foregoing is an assumption tbat the
Stato Treistiry is bankrupt when it is
notorioua that thero is a balance of
nearly (W million of dollars in the
Treasury (be whole year round. Sup
poso a bisiness man were to adopt
such a shj-stering plan to defraud his
creditors, what would booome of his
good nane if his creditors would dis
cover tint bo had millions in the bank.
Such is the situation of the Stato Treas
ury, and why should a Statu ofiiciuf,
ot anybody "interested in tbe public
schools" or in the advancement of
sound morals, issuo such a card as tho
above. Thero is money enough in tbe
Stuto Treasury to pay overy School
Warrant when issued, and it is a crime
for any Stuto official to assume that
such is net the fact.
It is a Crime. A Democratic ex
change says: Gun. Garfield is enti
tled to a lull and sc-mploto correction of
tbo statement tliul Judge Swayne had
oflicially denounced his conduct in th
Do Golyer caeo. Tho languagoattrib
u ted to Judge Swayne was not his but
that of ox-Senator Doolittle'a brief,
who was counsel in tho case. Mr.
Doolittle, by tho way, is an old line
Republican, who is now supporting
Hancock, and the opinion ho expressed
of Garfield, though not aa significant
as it it bad come from tho judge in the
caso is forciblo and true, and as the
Now York World suggests, why do
not the Republican newspapers boldly
take up and deal with the much more
important question whether the re
ceipt ol a $5,000 bribe Irom contractors
of any sort, by a lawyer who is also a
Congressional Chairman of the Com
luitteo which must pass upon the claims
or bids of such contractors, is or is not.
in tho alleged lunguago of Judge
Swayne, "a sale of official influence
which no veil can covor."
LETTERS OF. ACCEPTANCE.
We police by our exchanges that
General Garfield bas two letters out
accepting tho Radical nomination for
President. Tho editor of the Journal
was kind enough to publish tho long
ono, and wo givo tho short ono as fol
GARFIELD S LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE AS
IT SHOULD HAVE IlEtN.
To the Hon. (Irorge lyisbie Hoar and
others, Committee oj the National tic
fublioan Convention t
Gentlemen: My nomination by
your tonvontion at Chicago was un
expected. 1 did not desire It ; 1 had
not even contemplated loo possibility
of its being made. A very distinct
recollection of events in my own pub
lic career left no room in my mind for
tho Supposition that the political par
ty with which I am acting could, un
der any circumstances, risk its suprem
acy upon my candidature. Aftor the
moment ol weakness in which 1
consented to allow my name to go bo-
tore the delegates, my first Itnpulso
was to withdraw. That Impulse has
recurred with augmented strength at
various times during the past five
woe an, b w Bint strong wtinin me.
. ever tboloss, it having been represent
ed to mo that withdrawal at this lime
is impossible, I have reluctantly doci
dod to accept a nomination that was
unsought and uncovcted, and to enter
into a canvass which my better judg
ment declares to be hopeless. In ac
cepting the nomination of the Repub
lican party to be President of the
Lnitud ntutcs, i exprossly disclaim re
sponsibility for the rosult. If unfavora
ble to that party.
Having candidly defined my position
in regard to tho canvass, it becomes
proper lor mo to touch, with equal can
dor, upon tho loading issues that will
ongngo. tho atlontion of tho people dur
ing tho next few months.
In June, 1H68, as ia shown by the
record, and as ia declared by the re
port of the Republican investigating
committoo, known as tbe Poland Com
mittoo, 1 received from Mr. Oakea
Amos a check for three hundred and
twenty nine dollars, being a dividond
on stock bold by me in the Credit
Mobilier of America. J n the confusion
of a trying moment I swore that 1 bad
never owned such stock and novor re
ceived such dividend. Whon - it Was
shown. that the money in question had
neon naia mo, ncyond the poasiniuty
of a doubt, 1 rcntiestcd Mr. (lakes
Ames to consider it a loan. 1 aow
respectfully ask the voters ol th" Uni
ted States to take that viow of the
transaction, and lot it go as a loan,
.On tho LithofJulv. lHils-by an
interesting coincidence just eight years
ago to-day I received from a Arm of
contracture Interested in procuring an
appropriation by the t'ornmittoe of
hich I wus Chairman, a chock tor
$5,000. When this transaction wits
investigated, live years later, by a
Committoo of Congress, 1 swore that
the fj.UOii, was not a bnbo, but a lee.
The tact that 1 had never rendered to
this firm of contractors any services
of a legal nature is ono which, in my
opinion, it Is neither pist nor geuerous
lo bring ii D after ull litis lapse of
lime. 1 thereloru respectfully request
the voters of tho United Stales to
adopt my view of the live thousand
dollar transaction, and let it go as a fee.
In February and March, 1S73, 1 was
lurgely instrumental in effecting the
iiiino.io ol an appropiation of about
2,0011,000 for the back pay of Con
gressmen. 1 considered tbe amount
which thus came into my bunds a
welcome addition to my slender in
como; but when I found that the meas
ure waa odious to the country, and
likoly to affect the politicul futuro of
the Congressmen concerned in it, I
made haste to covor the ontiro sum
into the Treasury. I was ono of the
first half dozen to-refund. 1 now ro
spoctftilly ask the voters of the United
.States to take my view of that resto
ration of the people's money, and let
it go as a virtuous act.
There are no doubt other questions
unvoting my personal character wbicb
will come beforo tlvo oountry ; those
which 1 have specified lecm to mo to
be among tho most important. My
earnest desire is that, whatever course
political discussion may lake be
tween now and November, we may be
spared a campaign of calumny.
On the other band, if culture and
classical attainments are to havo any
weight in tho contest now opening
if, as has been recently suggested in
the spooch of a distinguished Massa
chusetts Senator, the schoolmaster is
to be given a bearing I can promise
that, like tho blind Tyrttcua at the
terriblo pass of Salamis, inspiring the
Athenian Old Guard by combing out
bis long locks in tho proBenco of the
Egyptian hosts, I shall bo found at the
Iront ot ttio Itopublican column, carry
ing confidence lo tho hearts of voters
by the ooolnojs with which, in the
hottest of the fight, I shall bring out
front time to time some ot the trcas
ures of a cultivated mind.
I remain, genllomon, your fellow-
Jaues A. Garfield.

out to, Duncan, (there were two men
in the wagon) whoro they disposed of
some fish, then returned to Cbeboy
gan, the second man was a big Indian
named Hen van Haul. During the at-
tornoon tney wore around town drink

who I took to be English made a re
mark that "five or six men triod to
got away with mo onco, but they
found ibey bad an all day's job of it."
1 looked for Pnquotto but could not

quotlo put on tho "cnfTs" bofore En
glish know what was going on. I was
at bis sitla to give a hand if necessary,
but the attack was so sudden that be
did not show fight at all. We took
him to tbo "lock up" and examinod
him and found a scar on tho calf of bis
leg the sizo of a pistol bullet, and one
on the left leg abovo tho knoo where
Dorsh said be was wounded, also a
scat on his hand. Ho gave his name
aa John Mnrkham, and says be comes
irom within soventocn miles of Buffalo.
After talking with him a few minntos
he left the by.word "By Jimminy
