EVER since his nomination, General
Hancock has l>ceu receiving congrat
ulatory letters from the soldiers of the
Second Corps pledging their fidelity to
him in the Presidential campaign.
The following is a copy of a letter he
received last week, and is only a sam
ple of the hundreds brought by every
"SrßixariELD, 0., June 29, 1880.
''Major-General If. S. Hancock.
"DEAR SIR : I take the liberty of
writing to you, as I am one of the old sol
diers belonging to your Second Army
Corps, Second Division, Third Brigade,
Fourth Ohio Volunteers (Carrol's). I
think I have a right to address you. My
first vote I cast when in your command
in front of Petersburg, Va. I voted
for Abraham Lincoln. 1 have voted for
every Republican candidate from that
day to this. 1 have had your photo
graph in my album for sixteen years,
and as soon as you received the nomina
tion I said I would..never go back on
my old commander. 1 will support you
with all my heart, hoping you may nutl
through, as you often did in the days
of 1863 and 1864, and that you may do
as well as we did on the morning of May
12, 1864, at Bpottsylvania Court-House.
'Carry the works.' Yours respectfully,
"CIIARI.ES A. SMITH."
THE Philadelphia Time* was charit
able enough to believe that Garfield
might set himself right in his letter of
acceptance. It said : "He may choose
that instrument as the means of strik
ing his calumniators dumb with a
new and satisfactory explanation of
all the charges that are piled up
against him. It may be shown that
his relations with De Golyer were
thune of a Christian brother, and that
he went into the Credit Mobilier bufu
ness simply to find our how such
tilings were done and then to expose
the rascality. Or it may be shown
that both De Golyer and Oukcs Ames
are myths of partisan manufacture.
In either event the vindication of this
jiersecutod man wonld become the su
preme duty of the American people,
and what a glorious rallying cry 'vin
dication' would make!" 'Hie Time*
was sadly mistaken. Garfield's letter
has appeared but the expected expla
nation is missing. He has not one
word to say about Credit Mobilier,
(takes Ames, or the I)e Golyer bribe.
These blotches therefore remain upon
his character as unsightly as ever.
IF General Garfield, remarks the
Boston Olobe, had consulted General
Butler regarding his Credit Mobilier
sjieeulatiou be would have fared bet
ter than lie did. He would have at
least escaped the charge of perjury
which now troubles him and his party
so much. Biugharu asked Gen. But
ler what he should do, and the answer
was, "admit the truth of your connec
tion with Ames." Bingham has been
forgotteu in the matter since, because
he did It be was advised. (Jolfax and
Garfield had not the moral courage

Gen, WiJliapj J I. Irwin, formerly of
Mifitin county, and previous to the
war a Republican candidate for Con
gress in the district composed of Mif
flin, Centre, Clinton and Lycoming
counties, is at present a resideut of
the State of Dmisiami, and the nom
ination of Gou. Hancock has called
forth a letter from him which appears
in the Louisville Courier-Journal of
lnte date. It was under the command
of General Irwin that the gallant old
Pennsylvania 4!) th went into the ser
vice in 1801, and under hiiu it acquired
that proficiency and steady discipline
that made it throughout the war one
of the fiucst regiments that Pennsyl
vania had in the field. The General
writes of Hancock as follows :
"I had the honor to command one of
the regiments of " Hancock's Brigade"
—tho Forty-ninth Pennsylvania—until
the Maryland campaign of 1862, during
which, and in the battle of Antietam,
1 commanded the third brigade of
Smith's division of Franklin's corps,
General W. S. Hancock commanding
the first and General Brooks the second
brigade. After the war 1 did not re
sume the practice of law, but was en
gaged in extensive mining operations in
ihe Juniata Valley, l'a., when, in 1867,
Major General Winiield Scott Hancock,
United States Army, commanding the
Fifth Military district, Texas and Louis
iana, offered me, and I accepted, the
importunt and confidential position of
attorney at his headquarters in New
Orleans. When I reported for duty in
December, 1807, cases of nearly every
description, and some very serious ones,
arose in tho wide territory under Gen.
Hancock's command. The evidence in
regard to these was collated under his
immediate eye and was then sent to my
office for examination, and, a written
opinion being prepared, was, with the
evidence, transmitted to Gen. Hancock
tor his final decision. I was thus con
stantly brought into close official rela
tions with General Hancock ; I saw the
minute and rigid investigation which
public business received from him,
heard his views on local and national
government, the wants of the impover
ished .South, the true principles of con
stitutional liberty, the superiority of the
civil over military power, the sacred
writ of habeas corpus, the vital necessity
of the union of the States and the cul
tivation of fraternal kindness among
the people of all sections, and it gives
me the highest satisfaction to declare
that they were the views of a man of
the purest honor, great intelligence and
courage, a patriot and a statesman.
They were above all party, all sectional,

I have no sort of sympathy with the
Republican party because of that act
and because it justified and sustained it.
After such an act 1 have no desire to
sustain the Republican party in any
way. I would not vote for a parly that
would carry through such a fraud. 1
think Mr. Hayes was elected by a fraud,
and 1 do not mean to have it afti<l that
at the next election 1 had forgotten it.
1 do not say that Mr. Hayes committed
the fraud, but it wax committed by liix
party. I have no enmity to Mr. Hayes,-
but after the fraud by which he became
president I could not vote for any per
son put up on the Republican side who
E did not disavow the fraud committed.
| I would not support any member of
i that party who had any sort of mixture
' with that fraud. I feel that the count
; ing out is just ax much a fraud now as
I at the time it was perpetrated.

I transcend belief, It baa now been dia
covered by the Tune* and Tribune that
he onoe actually allowed himself to be

belief that sqch an imputation can ever
be successfully put upon Oen. Garfield.

From tliv UITB Uulou-LesUt-r.
General A. L. Pearson, of Allegheny
county, ba baeu one of the leading and
most influential Republicans of Went
em Pennsylvania. lie was chairman
of the Republican city committee of
Pittsburg, member for Pennsylvania of
the Union Veteran National Commit
tee, and occupant of u number of other
positions of importance undor hi*
party, lie was a brigadier general
during the rebellion, has been District
Attorney of Pittsburg, to which office
he was chosen by the Republicans, and
in tiie prosecution of Uebublicun Slate
campaigns has been one of the most
trusted lieutenants of the chiefs of his
party. A telegram from Pittsburg dat
ed the 2d, announced that, " much to
the surprise of everybody," he had de
clared himself for Hancock and Eng
lish. That evening General Pearson
addressed an immense Hancock ratifi
cation meeting at Greensburg, West
moreland county. In the course of his
speech ho said:
" Probably we can even carry the Re
publican Htronghold of Allegheny coun
ty, for we have the lines of battle drawn
as Hancock had them drawn at the
battle of Gettysburg and somebody will
get hurt. The Republicans do not
always carry this State. It is but a few
years since we elected a Democrat for
lieutenant governor, John Latta, of
Greensburg. He waa a soldier, and 1
firmly believe another soldier will as
tonish you in November by carrying
tins State, and tbnt is General Hancock.
You may wonder why 1 am so enthusi
astic over General Hancock but no man
living can describe him. You must see
him us 1 have seen him on the field of
buttle. General Hancock is as pure a
man at heart us any man living. He is
honest, ho is capable, he is the beau
ideal of the soldier statesman."
General Pearson has resigned his
position as chairman of the City Repub
lican Committee of Pittsburg, and on
Saturday addressed the following letter
to < ieneral Grant:
"PITTS iiCRO, PA., July 3, 1880.
"To General V. S. Grant, Chairman Union
Veterans' National Committee.
'GENERAL: After seven years' connec
tion with the Union Veterans' National
Committee, over which you have the honor
to preside, I am compelled to tender my
resignation as the member from Pennsyl
vania. I have reluctantly come to the
conclusion that the influence of the great
historical party is ended Hnd ought to end,
that those who pretend to keep up its or
ganization are doing so for office and gain,
and that its encouragement of sectional
hate is a constant menace to the Union.
No permanent issues worthy of being call
ed national issues divide the two parties.
Free trade and protection are alike the in
cident of localities, and hence we find fi-ee
trade Republicans in the West and Fast
with protective Democrats in the Middle
•States. The entire issue that divides the
two op|>osing parties is the issue of hate
and usurpation on the side of the Republi
can party with military dictation at the
polls. Against this dangerous policy the
Democratic party has arrayed itself and
has chosen as its standard bearer the gal
lant (ieneral Wintield Scott Hancock, who
has placed himself squarely on that issue
by proclaiming that the right of trial by
the jury, the habeas corpus, the liberty of
the press, the freedom of speech, the natu
ral rights of persons and the rights of
properly must be preserved. In choosing
between these two parties I cannot see
how a patriot can blunder. Surely every
soldier, who fought with Hancock to con
quer peace will vote with him and for him
to make that peace effectual and perma
nent. Entertaining the highest reaped for
my fellow-committcemen and earnestly
hoping that they will view this important
matter in the hgbt that I do and come to
the same conclusion, viz: to vote for
Gen. Hancock, I am very respectfully,
your obedient servant,
"A. L. PEARSON."
Wo commend tbia admirable letter
to the careful perusal of every soldier
who fought for and every citizen who
loves the Union. It is an admirable
presentment of tbe only isiue of real
importance that awaila the immediate
arbitrament of the people. It re-echo*
sentiments frequently expressed in
these columns, sentiments that must
needs go home to large numbers of
voters who have not heretofore acted
with tbe Democratic party and impel
them to enrolment under Hancock and
English in November.
Heavy Importation of Iron.
THE 01-ERATOB* IIERE FBEDICT IMPROVE
RENT IN THE ACOI'ST SALES.
Prom 8nolaj'" Philadelphia Timet.
Although several months have elaps
ed since orders for foreign iron went
out from this country shipment* are
still arriving daily. This is due to the
fact that importations were made "on
future delivery" ami that at that time
it WAS impossible to find sufficient trans
porting facilities, owing to the tre
' mendous bulk of the orders. During
tbe past week or fen days especially the
receipts iu this city have aggregated
IfiO.OOO tons of bar, scrap and pig iron,
and it waa naturally supposed that it
would largely effect the trade, but in
quiries among operators yesterday
showed that tbia is not the case. It is
thought that tbe greatest bulk of the
importations is in and the receipts will
soon cease altogether. At present the
stock of foreign iron in Philadelphia is
estimated at an amount not exceeding
100,000 tons, a la r ge proportion of
which belongs to New York parties.
The atock here would be very much
i larger but for tbe fact that owners are
> distributing it all over the country and
storing for future sales. Tbe American
product is preferred by consumers and
many will not have the foreign iron,
and while prices have been shaded in
consequence of the latter the market
la not only stronger, with steady indi
cations for further improvement, but
there is a growing disposition to pur
chase on future delivery. The foreign
iron at present arriving had been lost
sight of by the general trade, owing to
the lapee of time ainoe it was ordered
' and the delay occasioned by shipmenta
r being made prinoipally in sailing vet
' sela, and frequently as ballast, but it
baa not oaoesioned alarm, as the scare
' came and went with the overstocked
market in Ike spring. The iron oper

Ills WOUND IN THE TIIIKD HAV's ftOHT. 1
From tli* Haw Vk Han.
Dr. Alexander N. Dougherty, of New-
Rrk, was medical director of the Second
corps when it waa commanded by Gen.
Hancock. Jlu is a Republican, and wus
postmaster of Newark under Grant's
first administration. He will, however,
vote for Hunuock. He said yesterday :
" When Gen. Hancock succeeded Ueq.
Couch as commander of tbe old Second
corps, 1 became his medical director.
At the battle of Gettysburg be com
manded the First, Second and Third
corps, one-half of the army. In the
third day's fight at Gettysburg be was
wounded, and I was sent for. I found
hiin lying on tbe hill slope under a tree
and facing the enemy. There was a
deep, wide gash in his leg, near the
groin. In the wound were wood splint
ers and a ten-peny Mail. Gen. Hancock
wus anxious to know what the rebels
were using in their shells. He thought
he hud been wounded by splinters from
one of the enemy's shells. We put
him into an ambulance, and 1 lay down
beside biro. Then we drove through a
hot fire to my hospital. Afterward I
discovered that a bullet had penetrated
his saddle, and then lodged in his thigh,
currying with it the wood splinters and
the tenpenny nail.
"As he lay in the hospital in great
pain, I at his dictation, wrote his first
dispatch to Gen. Meade announcing
the victory won at' Gettysburg, adding
to the dispatch that the defeat would
be turned into a rout. He wus calm,
patient and heroic. He is equally
entitled with Meade to fbe honor of
tbe victory at Gettysburg, and Meade
would say so if he were alive, tin the
night of the second day's battle a coun
cil of war was held. It was proposed
to fall back and establish the line of
battle at l'ipe Creek, but Hancock
op|>osed it. lie argued that the army
should stay where it was. and he said
that the Army of the Potomac had
made its last retreat, and should fight
or die on the line where the buttle was
begun. Gen. Meade fiually coincided
with Hancock, aud the result was that
that great victory crippled the rebels so
that tbey never recovered from it.
Hancock will bo the next President.
Several of my Republican friends have
assured me tiiey w ill vote for him. We

' No controversies of personal loyalty
can be raised during the canvass. This
we regard as a great gain. It leaves the

determination. While *e may expect,

their rulers, and free from all personal
bitterness and animosity. A campaign
conducted in this way will be elevating
