.streams of bleed peurinjj into the heter

hundred years ; and only one or two million
tin eats cut in that small war el the seces
sion. Great is Jacques, great Jeffersen.
The philosopher's dream bodied forth", en
velopes America, and men walk in it, and
believe it real. One son of this new time
said it was government of the people- bythc
pople, apd for the people. Se, in less
apt phrase. said French revolu
tionary philosophy and American consti
tution' makers at the beginning of it.
IJttt when the people of a third section
full third section, remember of this mar
velous republic said, 'Since government
may only exist by consent of governed,
we will withdraw mir consent and make a,
new government, same institutions, same
principles, same gospel of Jacques and
Jeffersen, only we will manage it alone,
without aid of ether two-thirds ' then
swords leaped, legions marched, and the
great republic did knit itself together with
ireu-and bleed cement, like any monarchy
net yet effete. And what old world' work
se wild and terrible as this of the young
republic, when its conquest is done, and
etie-tliiid lies pinned te the ether two
thirds with bayonets? Slaves turned
loose ; Cuifcc translated from the corn
row te the Legislature, and made states
man f, his master put under his bread
feet. They take the hoe from his hand
anil give him instead him prepertyless,
him signing with his mark the power of
taxation, and tell him te go en ;
Jacques and Jeli'ersen for the
nonce being of no moment,
and the viilue and intelligence
of the people, consent of governed,
school house and such like republican
ittbbish. quite forget until the republic
shall vindicate itself. Te Cuffee in the
Legislature, in chair of slate, and en bench
of justice comes the earpyt-bagger and
doth de his writing for him, and doth
teach him te tax, until all property lies
dead and profitless, and universal bank
ruptcy puts m end te the process. Mean
while Cuii'cc and the carpet-bagger de
swagger forth together, surrounded by the
bayonets of the gteat republic, and de oc
casionally amuse themselves with elec
tions, whereat bayonets are crossed ever
the ballet boxes, and disfranchised native
whites they who acted en that strange
theory of government by the people leek
en at' respectful distance. But great is
bankruptcy. Levelling up and levelling
down, bankruptcy put a liual end te spoli
ation, and Cuitcc retired te boetblacki'ng,
while bis friend, the carpet-bagger, took
himself oil te the place trem whence he
came. And se closed that remarkable
chapter in the history of Jacques self
government there. And yet net quite, for
there remains the linal leaf te write.
"They have every four years in that coun
try a grand national riot which they call n
canvass, and which ends in a proceeding
called election, whereby cheice is said te
be made of president. It proceeds upon
ene of the most beautiful theories ever
spun from .the head of a Rousseau or a
Jeffersen, namely, that every adult male,
whether lie hath aught else in this world
or net, hath at least a most enlightened
judgment concerning the conduct of pub
lic affairs, and will go about most wisely
te select a president for himself and some
forty million ethers. They open boxes,
and the citizens walk up and place therein
their ballets ballets ler the most part
unread, contents unknown, citizen most
frequently without change of shirt or
ether goods te speak of. The sum of the
ballets is the collective wisdom of the na
tion, Vex 1'epitli, Vex Dei. New this in
teresting process had been executed duly
in the year of our Lord 1870, when le ! Vex
repuli, Vex Dei, was found extremely dis
agreeable te some who held pewcr,and se it
was smothered forthwith, never get fur
ther than the box, but died there unheed
ed. Forged papers came forward and get
counted for votes by the representatives
of free America iu Congress assembled,
with shetted guns turned upon the eapitel
and camps of blue-coaled soldiers visible
from every window. Then a man in a
minority of a million of white voters and
a quarter of a million of all colors, takes
oath of office le prcsen c, protect and de
fend the constitution,' which makes spec
ial prevision for this business of the ballet
box, and the forger?, perjurers and thieves
seize and held all offices. This, then, it
seems te me, is the Anal leaf of the final
chapter, and the book, at least se far as
regards that election pretence aud ballet
box farce, may new be closed forever.
"Great AVasbingten, Father of this cu
rious country, sagely remarked, for the
benefit of posterity : Eternal vigilance is
the price of liberty.' Great Washington
did speak soberly aud truly in that obser
vation, which even at this distance of time
doth seem te have no great originality in
it ; and it is because vigilance is necessary
te the preservation of liberties that free
institutions have never been kept, except
under the guardianship of classes having
time and means te enable them te be vigi
lant in the care of public matters. But
hew shall a vast population, toiling and
moiling, each individual human being
struggling for that merely which will keep
peer body and soul together, exercise the
wary, constant, intense watchfulness
which this father of a country warned them
was necessary te preserve the complex
system which hopeful patriotism bad
devised for them ? l'ewcr is ever stealing
from the mauy te the lew, aud it steals
that way in America, as in all ether coun
tries, only with greater rapidity than wc
have seen elsewhere iu our time. The few
there are net nobles by royal or ether
legal patent, charged with certain weighty
rcspesibilfties in connection with "their
high privileges, but they arc the rich, the
mere rich, whose power is in the weight
of their cash. They owning great volumes
of capital, associated in a thousand ways,
driving by its use all industries, welding
se-called separate states together by iron
bands, holding national and state debts,
and controlling all fresh manipulation of
them, refundings and such like operations,
require voters te de their vill in
this business of the ballet box, and would
faiu have done with it altogether. When
te the voter is presented alternative of
bread or liberty, he docs most generally
and greatly prefer bread, aud defer liberty
te a mere convenient season. Four years
since, this class, standing apart with mere
or less distinctness, smothered Vex Pepuh
in the box there, or at least induced and
paid for the smothering thereof. But the
people have voted again, aud this time
there is no need te smother the voice of
them, for the previous smothering is con
doned, applauded, rcwaided. Plain new
that power is stealing, yea, has stelcu,
from the many te the few. The hands of

fatal hour when the stroke of- deem shall
" There is in America one man, looming
high above all ether men. Great com
mander, great killer, he, one who weic
out an enemy by attrition of numbers
hurled en him as Attila niL'lit have Hung
his human cattle upon immovable pikes,
without science, conduct, or twinge of liv
ing conscience, reddening the green earth
with the bleed of useless hecatombs from
Washington te Richmond. Loek iu that
stolid face. Mark the cold eye, the hard
jaw, the calm, cruel lip ; no light of
genius, no premise of sweet humor any
where in that coarse visage, lie is petted
of the few rich men, they who are weary
of government by ballet. They feast and
pamper him ; they give him houses, lands,
purses. lie shall be sent forth te
travel round the earth. He shall
see kings; he shall study strong
government; he shall prepare him
for the task that is before him. Shall net
the few defend their privileges? Have
they net made alliance with government ?
Are net their monopolies fixed in the laws
of the great republic ? in that monstrous
war tariff', for instance, whereby the rich
grew ever richer aud the peer ever poorer ?
There shall be no diveiec between ' busi
ness' aud government ; the marriage is
closer, the union mere intimate, than ever
was that of church aud state. When this
man with the cold eye attd the iirm jaw,
ascends the steps of the eapitel a third

saying : "If the city of NewA'erk had net

It is absurd, I think, te put the defeat
en the head of Jehn Kelly. The Demo
cratic less in majorities in this city was
relatively Jess than in Brooklyn where
Kelly is powerless and Tildcn is potential.
In the adjoining county of West Chester
we lest 2000 out of a usual majority of
2500. Ge te the ether end of the state. In
Central and Western and Northern Xcw
Yerk there was a large increase of the
Republican majority m nearly all the
counties. Everywhere, in the towns aud
cities especially, the tendencies of opinion
helped the Republican. Why then could
it be expected that this city the centre
of capital and the scat of commerce and of
enormous and increasing manufacturing
industry should have been untouched by
influences that alarmed the same interests
elsewhcre? Although we saved New
Jersey, the Democratic losses in that state
were se great that a similar less in New
Yerk would have given her vote te Gar
field by 50,000 majority.
It is true that there wcic certain causes
at work in this state that impaired our
strength ; if the battle could have been
fought under mere friendly auspices as re
spects organization, local leadership, pa
tronage, money, aud a mere perfect union
of our forces badly demoralized byhe
divisions of 1870 and the defeat of Tildcn
in 1880 for the nomination it is quite
certain wc would have saved the state, in
spite of the great difficulty always met iu
an attempt te put out a party that is in
power in prosperous times. The truth is
the Democratic party of Xcw Yerk never
was in a worse comlitien te make a suc
cessful canvass, aud it never had a mere
difficult canvass te conduct than in 1880.
Under all the circumstances I think
Hancock made a magnificent fight. AVhcn
you consider the lead English was te carry,
hewunsuitcd Barnum war. te manage a
canvass for anybody else than Tildcn a
consummate politician controlling his or
ganization and never guided by it, as Han
cock was forced te be, se unused himself
te this sort of thing ; when you consider
that we undertook one of the impossibili
ties of politics, te change partics'in geed
times, and all this tee in presence of the
fact, that the battle ground was te be Xcw
Yerk, a state in the enemy's possession
where our forces were disorganized aud
the friends of our ablest leader dissatis
fied, I think it felly for the Democratic
party te feel discouraged about the future.
It bus new the best record it has made
since the war. It has shown that it holds
a majority of the people in its organization
notwithstanding the enormous disadvant
ages it has contended against in this ex
ceptionally difficult canvass; and we see
that a change of 14,000 votes would have
given it control of the government.
Se far as the state of Xew Yerk is con
cerned I held it te be te-day a Democratic
state in its popular vote, whenever our or
ganizatien and resources arc even half as
effective as these of the Republicans.
(Loek at our gains in members of Censrcss
and members of the Assembly.)
What nonsense it is for the Southern
press and politicians te talk of surrender
ing te Grant or Conkling for 1881. Dees
this mean that the Sonth has net recovered

Among the most remarkable sermons
delivered en Thanksgiving day at least
iu the sense that it has invited the most
attention was that preached by the Rev.
Dr. E. Grecnwald, pastor of the. Trinity
Lutheran church, of Lancaster. The rev
erend gentleman, iu the course of his re
marks was very severe upon Gov. Heyt for
changing the words of his Thanksgiving
proclamation iu designating the state of
Pennsylvania as a "Christian common
wealth, "te read " a commonwealth of free
men," en account of animadversions made
against the former phrase by some Israel
ites. The venerable divine, the eldest inLan
caster, after saying that he had felt se ag
grieved at the insult given by expunging
the word " Christian " from the procla
mation that he felt like disregarding the
comment te open his chnrch and postpone
thanksgiving until Christmas day, then te
give thauks te Ged for Christ and Christi
anity, as well as for bread and maat, ex
plained that he honored the day because it
had been set apart by the president of the
United States, the governor of the com
monwealth only seconding it. The speaker
argued that it was no mere an act of iu;
fringeiueut of freedom of censcience for
the governor te designate the state a
Ciiiistian commonwealth " thau it was for
him te put- at the bottom of his proclama
tion the words "iu the year of our Lord,"
at which Jews and infidels might take
equal offense. Frem the whole tenor of the
sermon it is greatly te be feared that the
reverend gcutlcman's zeal far outran his
discretion. Even assuming that all the
people living iu the state of Pennsylvania
are professing Christians, the application
of such a term te the commonwealth
might be seriously disputed from the fact
of the abounding extent of every form of
vice aud crime among the people. The
assumption that Hebrews arc net te be
called upon by the executive authorities
of the state te give thauks unto the Great
Creater of the universe equally with these
who have an abiding faith in the truths of
the revelations of the Xcw Testament is
le say the least, a narrow-minded and
illiberal view that borders closely upon
the pharisacal. This country is supposed
te be the home for all men, whatever
may be their opinions in regard te the
worship of the Deity, and their belief
about the mysteries of the great hereafter.
While it is fully within the scope of Chris
tian minsters te use all laudable means te
convert the world te a belief in the truth
of our holy religion, it is as certain as
anything can be that when the least op
pression aud persecution is brought te
bear against these who differ from us iu
religious convictions we antagonize them
and stir up a spirit that will net cenduce
te the advancement of freedom aud liberty
or the cause of Christianity.
