Frem Horatio Seymour's Speech at Utiea.
Turn from Mr. Garfield's letter of accep
tance te that of Gen. Hancock. He bows
te the decrees of the constitution. He ac
cepts its teachings ; he is imbued with its
faith ; its terms te him arc sacred ; his
earnestness shines out in every line, and
when he swears te supjtert the constitu
tion in its letter and spirit we knew he
means te de se. These who formed it net
only chose fitting words te tell its mean
ing, but patriotism, like religion, has its
symbols. Ne flag which lleats in the
wind of heaven tells se much as ours of
the history and character of the govern
ment it represents. Its stripes recall the
names of the states which fought the bat
tles which gave us liberty, and which
crowned their glorious work by forming
our Union. The states arc numbered by
the stars which glitter upon its blue field.
He who would strike ene star from its
place, or who would blend or blur these
symbols se they would tell only of obscure
nationalism, has latent treason in his

There is net a color upon its folds, there
is net a stripe upon its emblazenry, there
is net a star upon its azure ground that
has net been made sacred te him. The ap
peal which drew him and his fellow
soldiers from their homes te the battle
field was te rally round the stars and
stripes and te upheld the Union. They
will never make our Hag an unmeaning
thing ; they will sec te it that it remains :i
true emblem of the spirit of our constitu
tion. By the people's vote General Han
cock will bear this standard en te victory
in this contest, as he has heretofore done
en the bloody fields of battle. He has
learned from it the grand purposes of the
constitution by teachings amid all the
solemn lessens of war, by the inspira
tions of the battle field, by the. sad and
solemn aspects of the bleed-stained
earth and the dying groans of men
when the struggle has ended, lie
has learned the great lessens of statesman
ship net amid scenes of party strife, net in
an atmosphere tarnished by personal am
bition or schemes of plunder, but where
Washington and Jcflcrsen learned the les les
eon of duty te their country and of obedi
ence te its Laws and constitution. It is
new charged by our opponents that wcarc
inconsistent when we place a soldier at the
head of the government. The propriety
of doing this depends upon the character
of the man and the nature of the scrvice
upon which he has been engaged. The
general who has fought only for victory
or conquest, or has been engaged only
te promote schemes of ambition or gratify
feelings of hate, has been taught upon the
battle field only lessens of force and vio
lence. But these who have dated the
perils of war te free their country of op
pression, te ga'n for it an independent
government, te resist hostile invasions or
te upheld it against resistance te its right
fill authority, have their minds filled with
objects instructive, ennobling and patri
otic. With intellects qtticked by all the dan
gers and excitements of the strife they see
mere clearly than ether men the value of
obedience te laws and the duty of sacrific
ing all things for their country's geed. It
was in this school that Washington learn-
J ed the grand duty of laying down the
sword and retiring te private Iile when tuc
world thought hcfweuld receive a crown as
his reward. This act, se constantly rcfcircd
te in ether lands as well as our own, gives
him his immortality.
It was in the same school, under like in

He who has learned te obey rightful au

which fits him te exercise authority. He
who reverences the laws of his country is
the right 'man te administer them. He
who has proved his devotion te its inter

A Trnc American Story.
Hew Anether Peer Mey Areso te Lead the
Party or a State In an Important
Hen. Frank Jenes, who was en Wed
nesday nominated by the New Hampshire
Democrats for governor, lias an interesting
history. His career has been that of the
typical American. With rare business
abilities he has worked his way te be one
of the wealthiest men in the state. He
was born in Barringteu, N. II., en Sept.
13, 1832, just forty eight years age, the
honor being paid him en the anniversary
of his birth. His father was a charcoal
burner, living in the weeds at Barrington.
He helped his father pile weed in the shape
of cones and covered it with sod, and
after the fires were lighted he watched
the smoking cones until the weed was
properly charged. Then the piles were
uncovered and the charcoal was pitched
into long-covered carts. His first entry
into Portsmouth, the Dearest business
city, was en one of these charcoal carts.
He started from home seen after mid
night and arrived at the outskirts of the
city as the sun rose out of the ocean, ne
stepped by the roadside, pulled out a par
cel from under the seat, and, sitting en a
stone wall, ate there his breakfast. Driv
ing through the streets before many per
sons were astir, he halted en the public
square in front of the stores and waited for
a customer. His cart was black with char
coal dust, and there were traces of it en
his hands and face. A widow lady en the
way te market stepped en the square,
looked at the charcoal and asked the price
of the lead. In these days a cart lead
brought only a few dollars. The young
driver named the price and the widow told
him te drive te her house. Before neon
the lead was transferred te the customer's
bin. and after the lad had washed his face
and hands the widow invited him te take
a scat at her dinner table. He said, many
years aitcrward, that it was the best meal
be had ever eaten. He drove home that
afternoon, and when he handed te his
father the money received for the lead the
latter said : "Frank, that was a geed
bargain." But city life had attractions
for him, and when he was 17 years
of age he went te Portsmouth and
was employed by his brother, a
dealer in hardware. In four years
he was a partner in the busi
ness. Four years later he sold his interest
te his brother and entered the firm of Jehn
Swiudcls & Ce., brewers. One year after
ward he purchased the interest of his part
ners and assumed control of the establish
ment. Gradually the business increased,
and the small brick brewery was enlarged
by additional buildings. At that time he
lived in a small two-story frame house near
the brewery. He took great interest in
the affairs of -the city, and in 1SC8 he was
elected mayor, and was re-elected in the
following year. His administration was
marked by economy, and he suggested
ami started many public improvements.
After his two terms as mayor, as already,
stated, he gave his salary te trustees as a
subscription toward a fund for supporting
a public library. Again called te the
front, he was elected a representative te
the Forty-feuith Congress, receiving 1!!,
007 votes against 1.1,0:11 votes for Charles
S. AVhitehensc, and 3:(5 scattering ; and
was re-elected te the Forty-fifth Congress
reciving 13,925 votes against 13,885 votes
for Gen. Gilmati Marsten. During both
terms he served en the committee en na
val affairs, and his knowledge of the man
agement of the Kittcr navy yard opposite
Portsmouth aided him in suggesting re
form. His prosperity being assured, he pur
chased a large farm, within a few reds of
where he stepped te cat his breakfast be
side his charcoal cart, and built a large
country scat. His flower garden is the
pride of the city, and en holidays it is
visited by hundreds of persons. It is
tastefully laid out and is ornamented with
statuary, pagodas and airy summer houses.
In the winter time he lives in the Rock Reck
inghr.m house, a hotel that he purchased,
enlarged and made the best in the state.
Last summer, also, he purchased the
Wcntwerth, a large seaside lioitse at New
Castle, three miles from Portsmouth,
which he fitted up at an expense that his
neighbors thought was ruinous. But he
said that he meant te make it an honor te
the city, even if it proved a pecuniary less
te him. The venture, however, proved a
success from the start. In the city he
owns several of the principal blocks,
and this year he erected the National
Bleck, a large building, with amusement
halls. He is a director of the Portsmouth
trust and guarantee company, a banking
institution. At each state convention since
returning from Congress he has been men
tioned for the nomination for governor,
but he always declined. He was mention
ed for months past as the best man te run
in the coming election, but he. asked his
friends net te put htm in the race. 'Fer
twelve years," he said, "I have net had a
day's vacation. I think I have earned one
and I want it." He intended te take a trip
te Europe. He is slightly above the medium
height, with a massive fiamc, brown
hair and beard, mixed with gray. His
generosity, integiiry and energy arc appre
ciated beyond his own state, and he was
known in Congrefs as an henestuntiring
A Blast at BIaiit:.
Rriucry at the ll:llit-Di.
Whatever Mr. Blaine may think or im
ply, a state is net corrupted in a day.
Voters arc net bought like pigs in a pen
by fifties and a hundred for the first lime.
The corruption of a New Kngland tatc is
a matter of slew growth. The guile of
corrupting it is shared no less by the men
who iiave made corruption possible than
by the men who have made it successful.
The difference between spending money
te buy votes and getting tee lew and
spending money for the same purpose and
getting a majority is ene of degree net
ene of kind; both parties are guilty. Prob
ably no well-informed man expected a
close election in Maine would be wen by
the Republicans without a lavish expendi
ture in purchasing voters. The presump
tion was a hateful one, but it was forced.
Nearly all the impartial predictions of Bc
publican success turned partly en the be
lief that the Fusieuists had a small elec
tion fund and the Republicans a large one.
Other influences were believed te be at
work in favor of the Republican party,
but the corrupt use of money was also te
be considered. A clese vete en a large
scale appears te breed corruption. There
arc cases in which bribery appears te be
mere free and mere successful in a rural
community than in a large city.
Nothing is te be gained by treating this
evil as confined te one party or the ether.
It is net. The only rule which a geed citi
zen can adept is te vote against the party
which succeeds through the employment
of money ; a rule which raakes a vote
against a Democratic candidate almost
always safe in Connecticut. The political
conscience of Maine is dormant or drugged ;
but if it was awake, its effect would be
shown in burying out of sight in Novem
ber the party which succeeded by bribery
in September. The law and the courts
have been powerless in dealing with this
evil. Proof is difficult, and where it is
possible, prosecution is apt te be danger
ous te politicians en both sides. The elec
tion which has just closed in Manic was
for congressmen. The stringent prevision
of the federal law covers it. The entire
machinery for their enforcement is in
Republican hands under laws of their own
making ; but there is small expectation of
the indictment or punishment of Fusionist
bribery. Every politician knows that it
would be a dangerous experiment. Trials
lead te awkward disclosures. Wise mana
gers, like the astute Mr. Blaine, shout fraud
en the housetop, and in charging its flv
grant presence, take 50,000,000 fellow
citizens into their confidence ; but they
avoid the grand jury room, and they are
wary of extending the same confidence te
district-attorneys. This is no isolated
The contestants in an English parlia
mentary election de net spend 83,000,000
publicly and as much mere in private for
honest purposes. The ballet has brought
no change for the better in England. "It
tempts many a man," said an English
election judge a mouth age, "te commit
the compound offense of bribery, false
hood and fraud." "This blot en our
electoral system," says the Londen Times,
"no change in the law has as yet been
able te remove." la England, as here,
there is apparent the same collusion be
tween the two parties te prevent inquiry,
the same anxiety te curb investigation for
the mutual benefit of election agents, and
the same rcsolute determination te avoid
criminal prosecutions. The Liberal ad
ministration of England is honest, but it
has pointedly refused te prosecute crimi
nally men at whose doers the evidence
taken in election contests had laid the
guilt of profiting by bribery. The solitary
difference betwecu the situation here and
in England is that there in large cities,
where the voters are many, bribery is rare.
This experience unfortunately is net shared
here, but it is the case that in the larger
states direct bribery plays a less important
part in popular elections than m some
smaller commonwealths, in and out of New
England. The organization of the intelli
gent moral sense of the country for its
suppression may seme day crush bribery,
as it may also reform the civil service and
tolerate the black vete at the Seuth.
Free Speech in the Seuth.
Kciiable Testimony Frem a Democratic
Reme, Ga., Courier.
The efforts of Northern radicals te keep
hatred of the Seuth active in the hearts of
the average Northern voter would be a
subject of little consequence te the coun
try at large if it was net that votes are
made for the Radical party at the expense
of truth by their efforts. If a Northern
born man comes Seuth and is met by the
people with open hand and given a wel
come, these Northern haters et the Seuth
very rarely are willing te give facts as do de
tailed by the Northern men a place in
their journals. But if some busybody
comes Seuth, and in proclaiming his ad ad
herence te the doctrine of eternal hate to
wards the Southern people is met by the
opposition which his own course engen
ders, and writes back home highly colored
stories of the inhospitable treatment he
receives, or manufactures and sends back
campaign lies and slanders out of the
whole cloth, the pack, including Tray,
Blanche and Sweetheart, all take up the
howl, and all the Radical papers, from
the little penny-whistle sheets, te these of
some character, send forth these slanders
te their readers.
A fair illustration of the course of the
Radicals is seen in the treatment bestowed
upon a gentleman who came te Reme last
spring from Lancaster, Pa. we mean Mr.
J. J. Sprcngcr. He has been writing an
occasional letter te the Lancaster New Era,
a Republican paper published in his old
home. In these letters he has spoken
truthfully of the Seuth and of the senti
ments of the Southern people. This does
net suit the ideas of certain bloody-shirt
Radicals up there, and one under the nom
de plume of J. D. attacks Mr. Sprenger,
charging that Mr. Sprcngerdecs net knew
of what he writes ; that he has net been
Seuth long enough, etc.
O no, it will never de te give credence te
the truthful report of a Northern gentle
man who has been six months in a com
munity, and who is free enough from prej
udice te be satisfied with his reception and
treatment by the community iu which he
is living ; but the slander of peripatetic
politicians and the apostles of the doctrine
of hate must be received as a truth. This
serves our party, say the Radicals, and the
ether serves truth, and in this as in all
ether matters, our party first.
It is net likely that a man hestile te a
whole section can pass through it pro
claiming his hostility te its people, and
whose journey is hastened by the lash of a
righteous public indignation, and acceler
ated by the beet-toe of public self-respect,
would form a very high opinion of the
hospitality or the " loyalty " of the peo
A Novelist's Shadow
Twe Writers Who Used the Same Name and
1'eth Known as the Auther or
A dispatch from St. Paul, Minn., lately
announced the violent death of a lady of
means who claimed te be Mrs. S. S. Harris
the author of "Rutlcdgc" and ether well
known novels. She had been in St. Paul
for a few weeks only, and said that her
home had been in New Yerk. She was
intelligent and sprightly and her so
cial standing was really excellent. She
was fend of spirited horses. On Sunday
with three female friends she went en a
pleasure ride behind spirited horses. The
animals ran away, Mrs. Harris was thrown
out of the carriage and picked up insensi
ble. A few hours afterward she died
from concussion of the brain. Her three
companions refused te divulge their names
A relative of the author of "Rutlcdgc."
visited the hotel, but did net recognize the
lady. Strangely, however, among the
lady's effects was a manuscript of an un
finished novel, and it was apparently in
handwriting of the author of " Rutlcdgc."'
An undisputed photograph of the son of
the author of that work was also among
the papers of Mrs. Harris.
Mr. Gee. W. Carleton, of the well-known
firm that published "Rutlcdgc" about
ten years age, said yesterday that the
authorship of that novel was kept secret
for seme years. Many guesses were made
as te the authorship, and all were wrong.
It finally came out that a young lady, a
native of New Yerk, Miss Miriam CeIcf,
wrote the work. Soen after this fact be
came generally known, he heard that an
author was writing serial stories for
"story papers" in Chicago and ether West
ern cities, and signing the name Miriam
Celes te the articles. They were
written with ability, and in the
style of the gennine Miriam Celes
Miss Celes was exceedingly annoyed,
of course, and her sensitive temperament
made her fret ever the matter. Mr. Carle Carle
ten made many efforts te learn who the
author of the stories was. but he never suc
ceeded. The unknown writer made no at
tempt te deprive the genuine Miriam Celes
of her literary honors, and thcrcfore could
net be reached by the law. Eventually
Miss Celes married Mr. Sidney S. Harris, a
lawyer of New Yerk. She continued te
write novels for Carleton te publish under
her name of Miriam Celes Harris. Almest
immediately the unknown writer in the
West also changed the signature te her
stories from Miriam Celes te Miriam Celes
Harris. It was learnedlbat she traveled
about between Omaha, Chicago, Lacresse
and Hudsen, Wis.
In August last Mr. Carleton received a
litter from the western writer asking that
"Rutlcdgc" and all the series of Mrs.
Harris's writings down te "Missy," the
latest, should be sent te her C. O. D. They
were net sent. Mrs. Miriam Celes Harris is
new in Southampton, L. I., with her hus
band, at their summer residence. Mr. Carle
ton added that Mary J. Helmes lias a simi
lar shadow, who fellows or precedes
Ler in her travels, and who represents
herself as the author of Mary J. Helmes's
works. This person has Mary J. Helmes'
name en her visiting cards, and nnder the
