43 WEST KING STREET
SATURDAY EVENING, FEB. 14, 1880.
A very temperate and admirable address
te the Republican state convention of
Pennsylvania was issued just before that
body assembled, signed by nearly 200 Re
publicans, whose names, se far as we rec
ognize them, are of great weight, and
represent many ether hundieds and thou
sands of Republicans. The signers believe
that the Republican party '-represents in
great part the intelligence, the cin-cicr.ce.
and the thrift of the American people,"' and
precisely for these reasons, they say, it is
full of these who will net support candi
dates whom they distrust, or mcasutcs
which they de net approve. They held
that the last election in Xew Yerk shows
what can be accomplished by "the united
action of these who care less for paity su
premacy than for the gieat ends for
which party organizations aie but a
means,"' They are of opinion that this
experiment will be repeated upon a greater
scale at the presidential election, " if the
Chicago convention shall present a candi
date lacking in the essentials which can
alone command the confidence of the in
dependent voter." The address proceeds
te state that the signers have no candidate
te suggest, but it says plainly that
" the number of Republicans is very large
who cannot be relied upon te suppeit one
whose candidacy would violate a tradition
which has become pait of the unwiittcn
law el the nation ; nor one who regards the
.skilful use of patronage for personal ends
as the highest functions of a statesman ;
nor one whose past inability te resist temp
tation would put his supporters en the
defensive throughout the campaign ; nor
one whose personal ambition may lead
him te regard the public service as a mere
iustiunientality for furthering his own ends.
The lengths te which party leaders are
prepared te go in the ellbrt te advance
their political fortunes are viewed with
alarm, and the cause of danger is found in
the low standards of many political leadeis,
and the unworthy methods by which the
scramble for power is conducted."
This is an exceedingly important, as it
is a most moderate andleicible, document.
It is one of the declarations which aie
events, and it is full of the conviction and
courage from which the Republican party
sprang. But we observe that Mr. Bout Beut
wcll, in a recent interview, just
before the address was issued, expressed
great impatience with such action as the
attempted "dictation" of dilletantes,
scratchcrs, belters and Germans ; anil he is
stated te have said that "if we lese the
next election by these elements sloughing
oil", we shall have a. strong, healthy party,
that will "iew up te power in " four vcais
by its own strength, and by the general
' cussednc&s ' of ihe Democrats." This is
a plain expression of the feeling of many
professional Republican politicians who
have net the experience nor the standing
of Mr. Boutwell. Rut although Mr. Bout Beut
well gives it the sanction of his name, it is
only the talk of the professional politician,
net of the American citizen who properly
undei .stands the Ameiieau principle and
popular irevcrument. We should like te
ask Mr. I'uutwcll whether scratchcrs, bolt belt
el s, Germans, dilettantes, the .signers of
the Pennsylvania addicts, or any ether
class of citizens, being honest and intelli
gent persons, are net quite as reputable
and useful people as professional politi
cians. Are the opinions of quiet men who
aic net elliee-seekers less important, or
their votes less valuable te these who seek
ellice, than the opinions and votes of men
who trade in patronage and live by poli
Assuming Mr. Boutwell te be correctly
reported, he must permit us te ask
whether an expicssien of preference re
garding candidates upon the part of an
American who is net an olfice-lielder or
professional politician is any mere " dic
tation" than a similarcxpiessionfiem one
who is. Te the general mind it really
seems that gentlemen like Mr. Cameren
and his followers in Pennsylvania, and
Mr. Colliding and his henchmen in New
Yerk, " dictate " te the Republican paity
quite as much as aeratcheis orbelteisor
Germans ; and Mr. Boutwell will observe
that the least expression of dissent from
the opinions and decision of these gentle
men is instantly stigmatized by their ad
herents as the attempted dictation of a
handful of " sere-headed " scratchcrs and
belters, who arc " tee geed for this
world." But while they live in this world
and arc legal voters in this part of it, and
arc, moreover, intelligent and industrious
members of society, can Mr. Boutwell or
any ether gentleman offer a geed reason
why the expression of their opinions and
professions is "dictation," any mere than
the similar expressions of Mr. Boutwell,
for instance, or of Mr. Themas C. Piatt,
or of Mr. Timethy O. Howe, or of any
ether respectable citizen who announces
his views upon the subject ? This kind of
talk, as Mr. Boutwell is probably aware, is
merely a familiar form of "blackguard
ing the plaintiffs attorney." But he
would, perhaps, reply that the "dictation "
becomes such only when it was used as a
threat. It is a declaration, he would say,
of these scratching, beltinjr, and German
persons that if they can net have their
own way they will leave the party.
But this does net mend the matter.
A political party is an association for cer
tain purposes. It is the purpose, net the
conviction, which is important, and there
fore when the purpose disappears, the asso
ciation is valueless te sensible and patriotic
men. Every individual must decide for
himself when a party is no longer te be
supported ; but it is net a threat, it is only
geed manners, if a considerable number of
such persons communicate their decision
te these who are counting upon their
votes. Under our political methods, un
doubtedly, " the great majority of the
party will shape its course." But Mr.
Boutwell will admit that its course can be
shaped wisely only upon careful consider
ation of the circumstances. lie would net,
as a practical politician, think it wise in a
doubtful state te take a course which
would probably cost the party thousands of
votes, nor, unless he has lest his sagacity
as a politician, would he define as due at
tention te the probabilities of the situation
as yielding te "dictation," and defeat as
the "sloughing off " of elements that pre
vents the Republicans from being a strong
and healthy party. There was a great deal
of this Republican "sloughing off' in 187G.
Was it an advantage te the party '? Would
it be a gain te the party new te lese the
character, the principle, the ability, the
energy, the intelligence, and the conscience
which Mr. Boutwell describes as scratch
crs, belters, Germans and dilettantes ?
In 1852, Mr. Boutwell, who was then a
Democrat, was elected governor of Massa
chusetts by a coalition of Democrats and
Conscience Whigs, which also elected
Charles Sumner senator. That coalition
which made Mr. Boutwell governor was a
"sloughing off' from both of the existing
parties. The Republican party in New
Yerk, in forming which Mr. Seward came
from the Whigs, and Mr. Preston King
from the Democrats, was also a " slough
off' from the two old parties. Did the
" sloughing off' strengthen either the
Whig or the Democratic party in Massa
chusetts or Xew Yerk ? The " sloughing
oil'," of which Mr. Boutwell was a part,
was stigmatized, he will remember, as a
fanatical and disreputable bargain. But
we de net believe that he has any doubt
that it took with it from betli parties quite
as much patriotism, integrity and intel
ligence as it left behind, and that
it produced quite as " strong and
healthy a paity as either the moribund
Whig or Democratic. We shall be slew te
believe that Mr. Boutwell really supposes
that the " sloughing off" from the Repub
lican party of all the elements of strength
and principle represented by scratchers,
belters, Germans, dilettantes, and inde
pendents, and the retention by it of the
whisky thieves, parasites, bummers,
' bosses," and trading politicians, who in
fest every great party, would make the
Republican organization healthier and
stronger. In the national convention of
1800, at Chicago, Jeshua R. Giddings was
withdrawing from the convention because
it declined te adept in its platform some
words from the Declaration of Inde
pendencc. He was but one man ; but the
convention, seeing him going, reconsidered
and adopted the words he proposed.
Would the Republican party have been
'healthier and stronger ler the "slough
ing off" of Mr. Giddings and all that he
represented ? Was his withdrawal " dic
tation ? " Would it have been better te be
beaten without Mr. Giddings and his con
victions than te succeed with them, trust
ing that less resolute and independent men
would make a stronger party ? The con
vention thought net, ami the Republican
paity was net less earnest and patriotic
then than it is new.
tjuiiie Happy Recollections et Country Life.
Who is there who has net in some recess
of the memory a dear old skating plate,
some sleeping pond radiant with ic ic
tlectiens of the scenes of early life ?
Thither in these winter days wc came, our
numbers swelled from right and left with
eager volunteers for the game, till at last
almost a hundred strong we rally en the
smooth black ice. The opposing leaders
cheese their sides, and with loud hurrahs
we penetrate the thickets at the water's
edge, each te cut his special choice of
stick that festive cudgel, with curved and
club-shaped end, known te the boy as a
'shinny stick, " but te the calm recollec
tion of after-life principally as an instru
ment of torture, indiscriminately premis
cueus in its playful moments.
Hew clearly and distinctly I recall these
toughening, rollicking sports en the old
mill-pond ! I sec the two opposing forces
en the field of ice, the wooden ball placed
ready for the fray. The starter lifts his
stick. I hear a whizzing sweep. Then
comes that liquid, twittering ditty of the
hard-weed ball skimming ever the ice,
that quick succession of bird-like notes,
first distinct and clear, new fainter and
mere blended, new fainter still, until at
last it melts into a whispered quivered
whistle, and dies away 'midst the scraping
sound of the close-pursuing skates. With a
sharp crack I see the ball returned singing
ever the polished surface, and met half way
by the advance-guard of the leading side.
New conies the tug of war. Strange fun !
What a spectacle ! The would-be striker,
with stick uplifted, jammed in the centre
of a boisterous throng ; the hill sides echo
with ringing shouts, and an anxious circle
with ready sticks, forms about the sway
ing, gcstlcuLitiug mob. Meanwhile the
ball is beating leund beneath their feet,
their skates arc clashing steel en steel. I
hear the shuffling kicks, the battling
strokes of clubs, the husky in titterings of
passion half suppressed ; I hear the pant
ing bieath and the impetuous whisperings
between the teeth, as they push and
wicstle and jam. A lucky hit new sends
the ball a few feet from the fray. A ready
hand improves the chance ; but as he lifts
his stick a youngster's nose gets in the
way and spoils his stroke ; he slips, and
falls upon the ball ; another and another
plunge headlong ever him. The crowd
surround the prostrate pile and punch
among them for the ball. When found,
the same riotous scene ensues ; another
falls, and all are trampled under feet by
the enthusiastic crowd. Ye gods !
will any one come out alive ? I hear the
old familiar sounds vibrating en the air ;
whack ! whack ! "Ouch !" " Get out of
the way, then !" " New I've get it !"
"Shinny en ycr own side !" and new a
heavy thud ! which means a sudden dam
per en some one's wild enthusiasm. And
se it gees until the game is wen. The mob
disperses, and the riotous spectacle gives
place te uproarious jollity.
The Weeds In Winter.
Ne one ever sees the full charm of the
forest who turns his back upon it in win
ter. Loek at the exquisite lines of that
drooping birch, the intricate interlacing
tracery of the minute branching twigs !
could anj thing mere graceful or mere
chaste ? could any covering of leaves en
hance its beauty? and se the apple tree by
the old stone wall hew different its vari
ous angles ! individual in its character !
hew beautiful its silhouette against the
sky ! thus every separate tree will afford a
perfect study, of infinite design. Sec that
mottled " beech trunk yonder. What !
never noticed it befeie ? that was because
its drooping leaf-clad branches concealed
its beauty ; but new net only docs it
emerge from its wonted obscurity, but the
whiteness of the snowy ground beyond
gives added value te every subtle tint upon
its dappled surface. Step nearer. With
what variety of exquisite tender
grays has nature painted the e!ean
smooth bark ! see these marbled
variegations, .each spot with a distinct tint
of its own, aiid each tint composed of a
multitude of microscopic points of color.
Here wejjsce a fimbriated blotch of darkelive
mess, spreading ;its intertwining rootlets
in all directions, and further up a spongy
tuft of rich brown lichen tipped with
snow. Who could pass by unnoticed such
a refined and exquisite bit of painting as
this ? And yet they abound en every side.
Sec the shingly shagbark, with its mott mett
lings of pale green lichen and orange spots,
its jagged outline se perfectly relieved
against the snow, and. beyond, that group
of rock-maples, with its bold contrasts of
deep green mess, and striped tints of most
varied shades, from lightest drab te deep
est Drewn. And there is the yellow birch
with its tight-wound bark, fringed with
ra veilings of buff-colored satin. Heie we
come upeu a clump of chestnuts, their cool
tiunks set off in bold relief against a back
ground of dark hemlocks, whqsc outer
branches, clothed in snow like tufted mit
tens, hang low upon the ground.
The Old Barn.
Was ever perfume sweeter than tthat all
pervading fragrance of the sweet-scented
hay ? and was ever an interior se truly
picturesque, se full of quiet harmony?
The lefty haymows piled nearly te the
reef, the jagged axe-notched beams over
hung with cobwebs flecked with dust of
hay-seed, with perhaps a downy feather
here and there. The rude, quiet hen
boxes, with the lone nest-egg in little nooks
and corners. Hew vividly, hew lovingly,
I recall each one !
In these snow-bound days, when the
white flakes shut in the earth down deep
beneath, and the drifts obstructed the
highways, and we heard the noisy team
sters, with snap of whip and exciting
shouts, urge their straining oxen through
the solid barricade ; when all the fences
and stone walls were almost lest te sight
in the universal avalanche; and, best of
all, when the little district school house
upon the hill steed in an impassible sea of
snow then we assembled in the old barn
te play, sought out every hidden corner in
our game of hide-and-seek, or jumped and
frolicked in the hay, new stepping quietly
te listen te the tiny squeak of some rust
ling mouse near by, or it may be creeping
cautiously te the little hole up near the
eaves in search of the big-eyed owl we once
caught napping there. In a hundred ways
we passed the fleeting hours.
. The general features of New England
barns are all alike. The barn that we re
member is a garner full of treasure sweet
as new-mown hay. Yeu remember the
great bread double doers, which made
their sweeping circuit in the snow ; the
ruddy pumpkins, piled up in the corner
near the bins, and the wistful whinny of
the old farm horse as with pricked-up ears
and eager pull of chain he urged your
prompt attention te your chores ; the cows
tee in the manger stalls hew sweet the'r
perfumed breath ! Outside the corn-crib
stands, its golden stores gleaming through
the open laths, and the oxen, reaching with
lapping upturned tongues, yearning for
the tempting feast, "se near and yet se
far." The party-colored hens group them
selves in rich contrast against the sunny
beards of the weather-beaten shed, and the
ducks and geese, with rattling cieak and
husky hiss and quick vibrating tails (that
strange contagion), waddle across the
slushy snow, and sail out upon the barn
yard pond. Here is the pile of husks
from whose bleached and rustling sheaths
you picked the little ravellings of brown
for your corn-silk cigarettes. Did ever
" pure Havana " taste as sweet ?
Near by we see the barracks stored with
yellow sheaves of wheat. Soen we shall
hear the intermittent music of the beating
flail en the old barn fleer, new chinking
soft en the broken sheaf, new loud and
clear en the sounding beards. Upen the
reef above we sec the cooing doves, with
nodding heads and necks gleaming with
iridescent sheen. Turning, in another cor
ner we leek upon a miscellaneous group of
ploughs and rakes and all the farming
utensils, and harness hanging en the wood
en pegs. There, tee, is the little sleigh we
love se well. Could it but speak, hew
sweet a story it could tell of lovely drives
through romantic glens and moonlit weeds
of tender squeezes of the little hand beneath
the covering robe, of whispered vows, and
of the encircling arm a shelter from tl:
cold and cruel wind ! But no I'll say no
mere ; these are memories tee sacred for
the common ear. W. II. Gibsen, in Har
per's Magazine for March.
