TEXT OF THE MUCH TALKED
ABOUT LETTER ON THE
THE ARMY IN TUB CHIHIM OP Irilll.
A TIIOruHTFUL D1BCCBHIO.N OF THE DUTY
OF BOLDIKH8 UNDER THE LAW.
Tho fulluwinir lullcr waa written in
reply to two luttura on tbo situation
rcccircil from Genorul Shormun :
Cabondei.et P . O . , St . Louis, )
Deoraber 28 , 1870. j
Mil Dear General : Your favor of
the 4th itiHt. , reached mo in New York
on the 5ttt, tho day beforo X left for
tin Went. I intended to reply to it
before leaving, but cares incident to
my departure interfered. Thon arain,
since my arrival hero I have been bo
occupied with personal allium of a
biihiin'ss nature that 1 bavo deforrcd
writing from day to day until this
moment, find now I lind mynolf in
debt to you another lettor in acknowl
edgement ol your favor of tho 17th ,
received a lew days since. I have
concluded to leave here on tho 2'Jlh
(to morrow) aflornoon, no that I may
be expected in New York on the Slot
iiist. It baa been cold and dreary
since my arrival bore. I bavo worked
" liko a Turk " (I prcsumo that means
hard work) in tho country in mak
ing fences, cutting down troes, repair
ing buildings, etc. , etc. , and am at
least ablo to say that St. Louis is the
coldest place in the Winter as it is the
hottest place in the bummer of any
that I bavo encountered in a temper
ate zone. 1 have known St. Louis in
December to have genial weather
throughout tho month ; this December
has been Ingiu and tho river nas been
frozen more solid than I have cvor
When I heard tho rumor thut I was
ordered to the l'aciflo coast 1 thought
it probably tiuo, consitlering tbo past
discussion on that subject. The possi
bilities seemed to mo lo point that way.
11 uu it been true, 1 should, ot course,
have presented no compluint nor made
resisiuuco of any kind. 1 would bavo
gone quickly, if not prepared to go
promptly. 1 certainly would have
been relieved from the responsibilities
and anxieties concerning Presidential
matters, which may full to those near
the throne or in authority within tho
next four months, as well as from
other incidents or matters which 1
could not control and tho action con
cerning which 1 might not appiovo.
I was not exactly prepared lo go to
the Pacific, however, and I therefore
Iclt relieved when I received your note
iniorming mo that there was no truth
in the rumors. Then I did not wish
to appear to be escaping from respon
sibilities, and possible dangors which
may cluster around military command
era in tho Kast, especially in tho crit
ical period last approucbinjr. All's
woll that ends well.
'The whole matter of the Presidency
seems to Do simple and to admit of
peaceful solution. Tho machinery for
such a contingency as threatens to
present itself has been carefully pro
pared. It only requires lubrication,
owing to disuse. Tbo army should
bavo nothing to do with tho selection
or inauguration of Presidents. The
peoplo elect the President. Tho Con
gress declares in a joint Bossion who
he is I We of the army have only to
oDey bis mandates, and are protected
in so doing only so far at tbey may be
lawiui. uur commissions express that.
I like JefTurson'i way of inauguration ;
it suits our system. lie rodo nlono on
horseback to the Capitol (I tear it
was the " old Capitol ") , tied his borso
to a rail fence, entcrod and was duly
sworn , then rodo to the Executive
Mansion and took possession. Ho in
augurated himself simply by taking
the oath of office. Theri is no other
legal inauguration in oursystom. Tho
people or politicians many instituto
parades in Honor ot tbo event and
public officials may add to the pageant
ny assembling troops and bannors, but
all that only comes proporly alter tho
inauguration not before, and it is not
part ot it. Uur system does not pro
vide mat one 1'resident Bbould inaULT.
rate another. Tboro might be danger
in that and it was Btudiously left out
oi tne cnartor.
Hut you aro nlacod In an oxcontion
ally important position in connection
with coming events. The Capitol is
in my jurisdiction also, but 1 am
subordinate and not on the spot, and
if I wero, so also would be my supe
rior in auinority, lor there is the sta
tion of the General in-Chief. On tho
principlo that a regularly-elected Pres
ident's term ol olllce oxpirea with the
3d of March ( of which 1 have not the
slightest doubt ) and which the laws
bearing on the subject uniformly rco
ognize, and in consideration of the
lawfully-oloctod Prosident may not
appear until tbo 5lh of March, a groat
deal of responsibility may neccBnrily
fall upon you. You bold over. You
will have powor and prestige to support
you. a oe oeoroiary oi war, too, prob
ably holds over ; but if no 1 resident
appears ho may not bo able to exorcise
functions in tbo name of a President,
for hit proper acts are those of a
known superior a lawful President
You act on your own responsibility
and by virtuo of a commission only
rtmnuieu Dy tne law. 1 tie secretary

dent You are not. J f neithor candi
date bu a constitutional majority of
inn r.iecvorai VOiiogo, or the Senito and
House on the occasion of the count do
not nnite in doclaring tome person
legally elected by the peoplo, there it
a lawful machinery already provided
to moot that contingency and decide
the question peacefully. It has not
boon recently used, no occasion ore-
tenting itsolf, bat our forefathers pro
vided it. It baa boon exercised and
has boon recognized and submitted to
as lawful on every band.
That machinery would nrobablv
elect Mr. Tildon Prosidont and Mr.
Wheolor Vice Prosident. That would
be right enough, for the law provides
that in a failure to elect duly by tho
peoplo of the House shall imme.Jir.telv
olect tho Prosident and the Senate the
V ico Prosident. 8ome tribunal mutt
decido whether tho peoplo have duly
electod a President. 1 presume, of
course, that it is in th joint affirma
tive action of the Sonate and House.
or why are they proscnt to witness
me count it not lo see that it is fair
and just T If a failure to agree arisen
between the two bodies there can be
no lawful affirmative decision that the
poople have elected a Proaidont, and
the Uouae mast then proceed lo act,
not the Sonate. The Senate elects
Vice Presidents, not President.
Doublloaa, in case of a failure by the
House to elect a President by the 4th
of March, the Proaidont of the Sonate
(if there be one) wonld be tho legiti
mate person to exercise Presidential
authority for the timo being, or until
the appcaranco of a lawful Prosident,
or for tho time laid down in tbo Con
stitution. Such courses would bo
peaceful and I bavo a firm belief,
I have no doubt Govomor Hayes
would mako an excellent President.
I have mot bim and know of bini.
For a brief period heBcrvcd under my
command, but as tho matter stands I
can't see any likelihood of hit being
declared elected by tbo people unless
the Senate and House coma to be in
accord as to that fact, and tbo llonso
would, of course, not otherwise elect
him. What tho peoplo want is a
peaceful determination of this matter,
us fair a determination as possible and
a lawful ono. No other determination
could stand the test, Tho country, if
not plunged into revolution, would
become poorer day by day; business
would languish, and our bonds would
como homo to Una a depreciated
I was not in favor ot tho military
action in South Carolina recently, and
if General Rugor bad tolographcd to
mo, or asked tor advice, 1 would have
advised him not under any circumstan
ces to allow himself or his troops to
determine who wore the lawful mem
bers of tbo Stato Legislature. I could
out have given him better advicothan
to refer him to the spouial messngo of
the President in the caso ol Louisiana
some time beforo. But in South Caro
lina be bad the question settlod b' a
decision of the Supremo Court of the
State the highest tribunal which had
acted on the question so that his line
ol duty seemed even to ho clearer than
in the action in the Louisiana rase.
If the Federal Court had intorfercd
and overruled the decision of the State
Court there might have been a doubt
certainly, but the federal Court only
iutorlored to complicate, not to decido
Anyhow, it is no business of tho
army to entor upon such questions,
and oven if it miirht be so in any event
if the civil authority is supremo, as tbo
Constitution declares it to bo, tbo South
Carolina caso was ono in which the
army had a plain duty. Had General
linger asked mo for advico, and if 1
bad given, it I should ol course havo
uoiiiieuyou oi my ueiion immeuiuioiy,
so that it could have been promptly
overruled if it should havo been
deemed advisablo by you or other
superior in authority, (ienernl Rugcr
did not ask tor my advico and 1 interr
ed from that and other facts that be
did not desire it, or thut being in di
rect communication with my military
superiors at tbo seat of Government
who wero nearer to bim in timo and
distance that I was bo deemed it
unnecessary. As Genoral Rugor had
tbo ullimato responsibility of action,
and had really tho greater danger to
confront in the final action in the
matter I did not venture to embar
rass him by suggestions. He was a
department commandor and tbo law
ful bead of the military administration
within the limits of the department ;
but, besides, I know that he had boon
called to Washington for consultation
before taking command, and was prob
ably awaro of the views of the Ad.
ministration as to the civil affairs in
hia command. 1 know that ho was in
direct communication with my supo
riora in authority in relcrcnce to tho
delicate euhjoclH ptesentod for consid
eration, or had ideas of his own which
he bolievcd to bo sufficiently in accord
with tho views of our common superi
ors to enablo him to act intelligently
according to his own judgment and
without suggestions from those not
on the spot and not as fully acquainted
with tho facts as himself. He desired,
too, to be froe to act, as he had the
eventual greater responsibility, and bo
the matter wan governed as between
him and myself.
As I have boon writing tbua freely
to you I may still furlhor unbosom
mysolf by stating that I havo not
thought it lawful or wiso to use Fed
eral troops in such mattors as have
transpired east of tho Mississippi with
in tbo last few month, save so far as
thoy may bo brought into action undor
tho article ol tho Constitution which
contemplates meeting armed resistance
or invasion of a State more powerful
than tbo Stato authorities can subdue
by the ordinary processes, and then
only when requested by the Legisla
ture, or, if it could not be convenod in
session, by tho Governor, and whon
the Prosidont of tho United States in.
torvenes in that manner it is a stato ol
of war not peace. The army ia la
boring under disadvantages and haa
boen used unlawfully at times in the
judgment of the people (in mino, cer
tainly) and we have lost a great deal
of the kindly fooling which tho com
munity at largo felt for us.
It is time to stop and unload. Offi
cers in command of troops often find
it difficult to act wisely and saloly
whon superiors in authority havo dif
ferent views of the law from theirs
and when legislation hsn sanctioned
action socmingly in conflict with the
fundamental law, and thoy gonerally
defer to tho known judgment of their
superiors. Yet the superior officers of
tho army aro to regarded in such great
crises and are held to such responsi
bility, especially those at or near tho
head of it, that it is nocossary on such
momentous occasions to dare te deter
mine for thomsolvcs what it lawful
and what is not lawful nndor our sys
tem. If tho military authorities should
be invoked, as might possibly be the
case in such exceptional times when
there existed such divergent views as
to tho correct result, the army will
stifle r from its past action if it has act
ed wrongfully. Our regular army has
little hold upon tho affections of tho
people to day, and its sunorior oflleora
should certainly, as far as Hon in their
power, legally and with righteous In
tent aim to defend the right, which to
an is the Law and the institution
which thoy represent. It is a well
meaning institution, and it would bo
woll if it should havo an opportunity to
be rocop-nized as a bulwark in support
of the rights ol Ihe ponplo and of the
law. i am truly yours,

HANCOCK'S LOUISIANA ORDERS
THE "SPOKEN ACT" OF
A SOLDIER WHO
If H'aalilnirfoii Had Iter nil
Place Ha Would Have foue Vt tiat
Paris. Jnlv IStb. IBRD.
To the Editor of the IIV.
Sir: A cablo despatch; reached mo
at London, whonco 1 answered it
more briefly perhaps than you ex
pectod, but 1 thought intelligently
enough. Your later despatch which
cumo to me horo yesterday, 1 now re
ply to by mail.
I inferred from ynur'iTtoi i.vjutory
that some evil disposed persous hud
been attributing to mo tbo authorship
of the ortlers and letters issued by
General Hancock while ho commanded
in Louisiana and Texas. My denial
by tolegraph was intonded to cover tho
wholo ground. 1 neither wrote tboso
fnpers nor suggested a word of them ;
had no precognition of his views on
the subject to which they relate, and
beard nothing from bim about it until
bo bad tuken tho public into his con
fidence. Indeed, my personal acquaint
anco ith him was thou very slight,
and our relations not at all intimate.
The opinion that I would offer or ho
would require my aid in producing
an order as bis Jio. 40 is absurd. His
determination to stand by the Consti
tution and tho laws need no expression
but what ho could give it bolter than
any man alive. It was not an argu
ment, not an exposition of the law,
not tin essay on tho rights ot man that
was wanted at that critical timo. The
spoken act ot a patriotic soldier in high
command alono could save civil liberty
from tbo destruction with which it was
threatened. That was what Hancock
did, and it was tbo timeliest lilt that
tho great cause ever got from any
bund except that of Washington.
1 hope my admiration ot the order
in question and the gratitude I have
felt to him for issuing it can bo reason
ably accounted without supposing that
1 framed, or had any share in framing
it. Tho belief was general among tho
Irionds of constitutional liborty, and
oxpresscd by many othors as strongly
as by mo, that Genorul Hancock had
dono much, and dono it bravuly, to
roscutf tho Nation and savo it alivo,
first from secessionists, and afterwards
from the more dangerous and more un
principled obligarcby into whose hands
it fell alter tbo war. At the dato of
his service in Louisiana tbo beau ideal
of a "strong Government" was in full
operation at Washington, conducted
by men who claimed to be absolute
masters of the country. Stato rights,
and, as a necessary conscquonce, indi
vidual liberty, wore violently trodden
down, and tho Constitution which
should have mudo ns frco was habitu
ally overridden and insulted. What
those men called "tho Govornment"
was not only wondrous strong, but
corrupt beyond all example in modern
times, lietwoen its force and fraud
the people were powerless, and their
despair was aggravated by an indifina
blo dread that the wholo army might
at any moment bo used to sink tho
Nation into still further degradation,
if below tho lowest depth a lower
deep could bo reached. It was in
tboso circumstances that Hancock
spoko out those words of truth and
soberness which reassured the friends
ol free government and inspired them
with new hopo. All who wore near
enough to watch the current of that
unequal contest between absolutoisra
and law can remember how the ene
mies of tho Constitution were startled
and scared whon thoy found tho most
brilliantGonorrl of the Union officially
declared himself opposed to their
"savage policy." They could not go
upon him, nor Bond upon him, nor in
munner destroy him, for not only was
the law of the land on his sido.buttho
army was found to bo tull of sympathy
with its conspicuously gallant and faith
ful leader. So they wero fain tocontont
themselves with harmless sneers and
potty persecutions. Hut they removed
him from the place whore his devotion
to the Constitution was specially in
terfering with their schemes to subvert
it. When they mado up thoirtninds
to strangle tho liberties of a State,
to disperse a legal Legislature by brute
Ibrco, to inaugurate for Governor a
shameless adventurer, known to bavo
beon defeated at at the polls, or to pin
tho poople down with bayonets while
thoy were plundered by alien thieves
who claimed lo be their representa
tives and offlcors, somebody else was
employed to do tho Infumotia work.
Still more carefully did thoy avoid his
presouce when tho wholo Nation was
to bo swindled at a Presidential elec
tion. It was for such reasons that the
heart of tho country warmed to Gen
oral Hancock as its predestined de
liverer. It has often happened that the best
things of tho greatest men are attribu
ted to others who are wholly incapa
blo of thorn. The opinion was indus
triously propagated and accepted as
true thut Hamilton wrote the Fare
well Address of Washington, but the
evidence is conclusive which shows
that every word of that Immortal pro
duction camo from Washington him
aelf; and Hamilton could not have
writton it any moro than he oould
have mado a world. Some of Jack
son's most characteristic papors, bear
ing the full impress of bin own mind,
wore habitually credited to porsons of
far inferior ability. When it was
charged against Jefferson that ho
wroto Logan's speech, he solemnly de
clared that lie was unequal to such a
composition. I am not affecting
modesty whon 1 claim credence of my
present denial for a similar reason. 1
could not havo written Hancock's No.
40 not bocnuso 1 pretend to bo dumb
or altogether unskilled in the use of
English words, but because if I had
undertaken to write it the chancet are
ninety-nlno in a hundred that my
argumentation would havo marred its
majostio simplicity and greatly dimin
ished its power. When a publio man,
especially a military man, meota a
grave responsibility, saying no more
nor loss than the thing ho ought, but
saying it with unequivocal clearness,
you may be snro he ia tho Interpreter
of his own thoughts. At any rate,
the attempt is unjust to bastardizo No.
40 by assaigning lo it an origin totally
difforont from the true one.
Why should my opinion be askod or
voluntcored on General Hancock as a
civilian f Anybody olto who has
watched his lifo is at good a judge as
I, and there are thousanda who know
him much bottor. Rut since the ques
tion it propounded I will answer, tub-
jcot to fair correction, that be hat in
bim the highest and best qualities of
a Republican ruler. I think hit fldolity
to sonnd principles, coupled with his
sound judgment, will ontitlo him to
rank woll with tho great Presidents ot
former times. .1 do not compare bim
with Washington, for tho grandonr of
that character Is and will remain for
ever unapproachable, but I do say that
Washington, if placed in his situation,
would have acted precisely as ho did.
Ilia patriotism has not tho impulsive
ardor of Jackson's, but bis fidelity to
the truth, his love of truth, his love of
justice and his scorn ot wrong, are
quite as unmistakable. He is not a
doctrinaire liko Jefferson, for his busy
life has left him no time to study the
abstract philosophy of politics, but bis
practical good sonso knows the right
intuitively and always catches the
nearest way to do it. If ho be eloctod,
the ability of his administration will
inspire universal respect, and his mod
eration and magnanimity will con
ciliate evou bis enemies'. 1 have the
fullest faith that ho will not only koup
bis oath to preserve, protoot and de
fend the Constitution, but will so carry
out its provisions that tho great ob
jects of its framers as expressed in the
preamble will bo fully accomplished
"To form a moro porfect Union, to
establish justice, to insure domestic
tranquillity, to provide for the com
mon defense, to promoto tbo genorul
welfare, and to secure tho blessings ol
liborty tooursolvos and our posterity."

EXGLJSI1 'S A CCEPTAXCE.
WHY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY SHOULD
OIVE WAY TO Till DEMOCRATS.
Indianapolis, July 30. Hon. Wm.
II. English tiansmitted the following
letter of acceptance of hia nomination
as candidato for Vice President to tho
Commiltooot Notification to-day:
Indianapolis, Ind., July 30, '80.
To Hon. John IP. Stevenson, President
of the Convention : Hon. J. P. Stock
ton, Chairman, and other members of
the Committee of Notification:
Gentlemen: 1 havo now tbo honor
to reply to your letter of the llilh
instant, informing mo that I wus unan
imously nominated for tho office of
Vice President of the United States
by the lute Democratic National Con
vention which assembled at Cincinnati,
As foreshadowed in tbo verbal remarks
mudo by me at tho timo of tho delivery
of your letter, 1 havo now to say that
I accept tho high trust with a realiz
ing senso of its responsibility, and am
profoundly grateful for tho honor con
ferred. I accept tho nomination upon
tho platlbrm ol principles udopted by
tbo Convention, which 1 cordially ap
prove, and 1 accopt it quite as much
because of my faith in the wisdom and
patriotism of the great statesman and
soldier nominated on the sumo ticket
for President of tho United States.
His eminent services to his country;
his fidelity to tho Constitution, tbo Un
ion and tho lows; his clear perception
of tho correct principles of government
us taught by Jefferson; his scrupulous
care to keop tho military in strict sub
ordination to tbo civil authorities; his
high regard for civil liberty, porsonal
rights and tho right of property ; bis
acknowledged ability in civil as well
as military affairs and his pure and
blameless life all point to him as a man
worthy of tbo confidence of the pco
plo. Not only a bravo soldier, a groat
commander, u wiso statesman and a
pure patriot, but a prudent, painstak
ing, practical man of unquestioned
honesty, trusted oltcu with important
public duties, faithful to every trust
and in the lull meridian ot ripe and
vigorous manhood, ho is, in my judg
ment, eminently fitted for tho highest
olllce on earth the J resident ol the
A CUANUE DEMANDED.
Not only it bo the right man for tho
placo, but the timo has como whon tbo
best interests of tbo country require
that tho parly which has monopolised
the executive department of the Gen
eral Government lor the last twenty
years should bo retired. The continu
ance of that party in power four years
longer would Dot bo beneficial to tho
public nor in accordance with tho spirit
of our Republican institutions. Laws
of entail havo not been favored in our
system of government Tbo porpotu
ation of property or place in one fami
ly or sot ot men has nevor been en
couraged in this country, and tho great
and good rflcn who formed our Repub
lican government and its traditions
wisely limited tbo tenure of offico and
in many ways showed thoir disapproval
of long leases of power. Twonty years
of continuous power is long enough,
and has already led to irregularities
and corruptions which aro not likely
to bo proporly exposed under tho same
party that porpotratcd thorn.
FRAUD MUST NOT BE CONDONED.
Besides it should not bo forgotten
that tho lour last years of power held
by that party wore procured by dis
creditable meant and held in defiance
of tbo wishes ot the majority of the
peoplo. It was a grevious wrong to
every voter and to our sytcm of self
goverment which should never bo tor.
gotten or forgiven. Many of tho men
now in office were put there because
of corrupt partisan services in thus do
foaling tho fairly and legally-expressed
will of tbo majority, and the hy
pocrisy ol the professions of that party
in lavor of civil servico reform was
shown by placing Biich men in oflloc
and turning tho wholo brood of Fed
oral office-holders loose to influence tho
oloctions. Tho monoy ot the people
taken out of tho publio Treasury by
theso men lor services oltcn poorly
icrformod or not performed at all is
leing used in vast sums, with tho
knowledge and presumed sanction ol
tho administration, to control tho elec
tions, and oven tbo members of the
Cabinet aro strolling about the coun
try making partisan speeches instead
of being in thoir departments at Wash
ington discharging the publio duties
for which thoy aro paid by tbo peoplo.
But with all their clevornoss and abili
ty, a discriminating publio will no
doubt read between the linos of their
speeches that their paramount hopo
and aim is to koop themselves or thoir
satellilica four years longer in offico.
That perpetuating powor of chronic
Foderal office holders four years longer
will not benefit the millions of men
and women who hold no office, but
earn thoir daily bread by honest in
dustry, is what tbo same discerning
publio will no doubt fully understand,
as thoy will, also, that it is becauno of
thoir own industry and oconomy and
God's bountiful harvests that tho coun
try is comparatively prosperous, and
not becauso of anything dono by theso
Foderal office-holders. Tho country is
comparatively prosperous, not becauso
ot them, but in spite of thorn.
Tilt PEOPLE AND THE orFICE nnMlIRS.
Tho contest is, in fact, bolwoen the
people, endeavoring to regain tho po
litical powor which rightf ully bolongs
to thorn, and to restore the pure, sim
plo, economical, constitutional govern
ment of our fathers, on the ono sido,
and a hundred thousand Fedoral office
holders and their backers, pampered
with placo and powor and determined
to retain them at all hazards, on the
other. Hence the constant assump
tion of now and dangerous powers by
the General Government under tho
rule of the Republican party. The
effort to build up what they call a
strong government: the interference
with home rulo and with the adminis
tration of Justico in the Courts ol tho
several States ; the Interference with
the elections through tho medium ot
paid partisan Foderal offioe-holden in
terested in keeping their party in
powor and caring more for that than
fairness in tho elections; In fact the
constant encroachments which have
boon made by that party upon the
clearly reserved rights ol tho poople
and the Slates will, il not chocked,
subvert Ihe liberties of the people and
mo government ol limited powers cre
ated by the fathers and end in a
great consolidated central government,
strong indeed for evil and the over
throw ot Republican institutions. Tho
wiso men wnoiramcoouri;onsiiiuiion
know tho evils of a strong government
and tho long continuance of political
power in the sumo hands. They knew
there v ns u tendency in this direction
in nil governments and consequent dan
ger to Republican institutions from
thut cause, ami look pains to guard
aguinstit. The machinery of a strong
centralized General Government can be
used lo perpetuate tho same But of men
in power from term to term until it
ceases to be a Republic or is such only
in name, ana me tendency oi tne par
ty now in power in that direction, as
shown in various ways besides the will
ingness recently manifested by a largo
number ol thut party to elect a 1 resi
dent an unlimited number of terms, is
quito apparent and must satisfy think
ing peoplo that tho lime bas come
when it will bo safest and best tor that
party to bo retired.
IN FAVOR OF THE CONSTITUTION.
But in resisting the encroachments
of the General Government upon the
reserved rights of tho peoplo and the
States, I wish to bo distinctly under
stood as favoring tho proper exercise
by tbo Gonerar Government of tho
powors rightfully bolonging to it and
under the Constitution. Kncroach
ments on the constitutional rights of
tho General Government, or intorfer
enco with tho propor exorcise of its
powers, must be curefully avoided.
Tho union ol tho States under the Con
stitution must be maintained, and it is
well known tbat this has always been
tho position of both the candidates on
tho Democratic Presidential ticket. It
is acquiesced in ovorywhero now, and
finally and forever settled as one of
tbo results ot tbo war. It is certain
beyond all question that tbo lee-itimato
results of the war for the Union will
not bo overthrown or impaired should
tho Democratic ticket bo elected.
WBAT THE DEMOCRATS WILL DO.
In that evont proper protection will
be given in every legitimate way to
every citizen, nutivo or adopted, in
ovory section ot tho Republic, in tho
enjoyment of all the rights guaranteed
by tho Constitution and its amend
ments. A sonnd currency of honest
money, of a value and purchasing
power corrospondingsubstantially with
tho standard recognized by tbo com
mercial world and consisting of cold
and silver and paper, convertible into
coin, will bo maintained. Tbo labor
and manufacturing, commercial and
business interests ol tho country will
bo favored and encouraged In every
legitimate way. The toiling millions
ol our own people will bo protected
from the destructive competition of
the muicsc, anu to that end tbcir ira
migration to our shores will bo prop,
erly rostrictod. '
Tbo publio credit will be scrupu
lously maintained and strengthened by
rigid noonomy in pyblio nxpaDdttuma
and tho liberties ol the people and tho
proporly oi tuo peoplo will be pro
tectod by a govornment of law and
order, adtninistoied strictly in the In
terests of all the peoplo, and not of
corporations and privileged classes.
1 do not doubt the discriminating
justice of tho pooplo and their capacity
tor intelligent self-government, and
therefore do not doubt tho success of tho
Democratic ticket lis success would
bury, beyond resurrection, tho sectional
jealousies and hatreds which bavo so
long been tho chief stock in trade of
pestiferous demagogues, and in no
other way can this be to effectually
accomplished. It would restore har
mony and good fooling between all tho
sections and mako us in tact, as well
as in name, one people.
Tbo only rivalry then would be in
tuo race lor the developments oi ma.
torial prosperity, tbo elevation of Iubor,
the enlargement of human rights, the
promotion of education, morality, re
ligion, liborty, order, and all that would
tend to mako us tbo foremost Nation
of the earth In tho grand march of hu

SINIlINd Of THE INDIAN
Tho Barracks indicated have until
recently been used to educato "Flying

tablishment has been dedicated to tbo
civilzation and education ol young In

arics out of them, and in the future
utilize them on the plains in convert

lisle correspondent of tbo Harrisburg
Patriot in a recent issue of that journal
relates tho following :
Mr. EuiTon: Iu looking overyear
columns tho other day tho article
headed " Spotted Tail's Children "
caught my attention. In consequence
I writo you a few lines bearing some
what on the same subject Having
passed some timo recently in the vi
cinity of a camp of Indian boys, about
eighty in number, from the Carlisle
Barracks, 1 became tolerably woll ac
quainted with thoir manners and foot
ings. The boyt soom to enjoy thoir
temporary freedom from the school

donablo prido in the Knglish tbey have
acquired there and no dislike to its re
strictions. While under most excellent
discipline they appear porfoctly happy
and content. Somo of thoir number
speak Knglish very well and most of j
thorn untlorsland it; but Ihoy are very
shy and diffident about making use of
what they do know. Among the num
ber of thoso with whom 1 became
best acquainted, owing to their better
knowledgo of our languago, whore
Moses Norway, Klin or Laughing Boy
and Joe. The first of those is a boy
of about sixteen, a good naturod chap
and a general favorite with whito visi
tors. Through bim I obtained tbo an
lographa of some of tho boyt. Ho
also showed me letter from his fathor
in which the latter counsels him to
mako good oso of the advantages he
enjoys and learn all he ran, assuring
bim it ia for hit good. The discipline,

in the morning summons lo roll call
and breakfast alter which thoso not
detailed lo any work at tha camp at
which they lako turns, wandor on the
mountains or sit in their tents making
bows and arrows. In the ovoning
again just aflor tea the roll is oalled
and the guard lor the night assigned.
Alter this the boys are froe until bed
time and in this interval tho old habits
rosoms thoir sway and passing from
tent to tent yon may bps the boys
gathered in groups boating their kettles
and chanting tboirown poculiar songs.
At nine o'clock the bugle sounds and
from tbat time porfect silence reigns
until the same cull in the morning.
Several times during our stay In
thoir neighborhood the boys attracted
by our singing gathered round, but
could nevor bo persuaded to ting for
us. The lust night however, thoy came
and sat on one end of the porch and
as the sound of our voices died away
tbey took up tbo strain and sang in
thoir low, soil tones somo ol our hymns.
Imagino It if you can, tho uioon slowly
mounting over the top ol the moun
tains rising on all sides of us, cast its
still, clear lights over the tentt across
the road and tho dark figures moving
in una out over tne long low pinch at
one end of which we sat, while at the
other these poor little fellows were
gathered singing, "Yes Jesus Loves
mo, tho Biblo lolls mo so." We nut in
silence after tbey finished and the be
gan again and sang for us tbe old, old
story which came to us from them with
new meaning. Thoy ended with that
sweet little hymn "Ho shall Gather the
Gems for II is Kingdom." By tbe ti me

moved and tears wore in every eye,
tears both of joy and sadness. Sad to
think of the mock we often make of
our religion in our treatment ot these
peoplo no less "His loved and His
own" than ourselves, and joy to thifik
tbey two might now learn of Him and
be among the "Gems for His Crown."
This little experience has greatly in
fluenced my thoughts on this subject,
and I can only with those who may
not approve of tbe work being carried
on at tbe Barracks to go and Bee them

wishing it great future success.
