THE following is the letter address
ed to Hon. Wm. 11. English by the
committee of the National Convention,
informing iiiui of his nomination, mid
the reply of Mr. English :
To HON. W. 11. ENGLISH : Dear Sir.-
By direction of the Democratic Nation
al Convention, which assembled at Cin
cinnati, June 2'J, last, it becomes our
pleasant duty to notify you that you
were selected by that body for the ofiice
of Vice President of the United States.
Your large experience in the affairs of
our government, your able discharge of
many trusts committed to your hands,
your steadfast devotion to Democratic
principles, and the uprightness of your
private character, give assurance to the
Democracy that you are worthy and
well qualified to perform the duties of
that high position and commended you
to them for the nomination which
they conferred. While your personal
qualities and your public services merit
ed this honor, the action, of course,
was no doubt designed not only to vin
dicate their appreciation of yourself,
but as well to testify their profound
respect for the Democracy of Indiana,
your native State, with whose many
struggles you have been so iong iden
tified and in whose glorious achieve
ments you have shared, The Conven
tion act forth its views upon the leading
political issues which are now before the
people in a series of resolutions, a copy j
of which we have the honor to present
to you, and to which your attention is
respectfully requested. It is our earn
est hope that these views may meet
with your approbation, and that you
will accept the nomination which is {
now tendered you.
With sentiments of high esteem, we
are, respectfully,
President of the Convention.
NICHOLAS M. BELL, Secretary.
After a few minutes of handshaking,
Stockton turned to English and in a
few words notified him of his nomina
tion, to which the latter replied as fol
lows :
Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of the
committee : As a practical business man
not accustomed to indirection of action
or circumlocution of speech, I will sny
plainly and in a few words that 1 accept
the high trust which you have tendered
me with feelings of profound gratitude,
and that I will at an early date formal
ly and in writing make the acceptance
which I am informed ia usual on such
occasions. In doing this I fully realize
the great responsibility of the situation,
the care, turmoil, anxiety, misrepresen
tation and abuse, which are certain to
follow, and 1 understand thoroughly
that all the resources and power of pol
itical foes from all parts of the land
will be concentrated against us. In In
diana, my native State, where the first
grand battle ia to be fought and proba
bly the most important of all. But these
are great occasions when the dis
charge of high patriotic duties is to he
considered above all present considera
tions, and I shall not disregard the
unanimous voice of the representatives
of the majority of American people
which you speak here taday. (Ap
plause. | I am profoundly grateful for
the high honor which has been confer
red and I have an abiding faith that
with the favor of God and of the people
we shall succeed in this contest.
Garfield at llnme.
In 1876, the anti-Gmrfield Republi
cans of his own district
resolved as follows:
"Seventh —Resolved, That we further
arraign and denounce James A. Gar
field for hia corrupt connection with the
Credit Mobilier, for his false denials
thereof before his constituents, for his
perjured denial thereof before a com
mittee of his peers in Congress, for
fraud upon bis constituents in circulat
ing among them a pamphlet purport
ing to set forth the finding of said com
mittee and the evidence against him,
when in fact material portions thereof
were omitted and garbled.
"Etghth —Resolved, That we further
arraign and charge him with corrupt
bribery in selling his official influence
as chairman of the committee on appro
priations for $5,000 to the De Gotyer
pavement ring to aid them in procuring
a oontract from the Board of Publlo
Works of the District of Columbia;
selling his influence to aid said ring in
imposing upon the people of said dis
trict a pavement which is almost worth
less at a price three times its cost, as
sworn to by one of tho contractors;
selling his influence to aid said ring in
procuring a contract, to procure wbick
it corruptly paid $07,000 'for influence;'
selling bis influence in a matter that in
volved no question of law, upon the
shallow pretext that he was acting as a
lawyer." •

A Sample Straw.
Tho following communication, un
der tho head of "A Samplo Straw,"
appeared in the Philadelphia Record,
of last Saturday, and it clearly indi
cates the popularity of Hancock with
the business and conservative masses
of the country:
Editor of the Record:
1 have no recollection of a national
campaign in which the tide of popular
sentiment set so decidedly, so visibly
and so entirely without check, in one di
rection, as at present. There have been
campaigns in which many voters aban
doned their political associates and sup
ported tho nominees of the rival party.
Hut those changes on the eve of elec
tions were rarely confined to one party.
There were acquisitions in both purties
in compensation for defections, gains
and losses, of which the balance could
not be drawn until the votes were couut
ed. In the present contest, from the
day, from the hour, of the nomination
of General Hancock at Cincinnati, the
current has been running continuously
in his favor, many prominent Republi
cans heartily supporting him, while
there have been no counterbalancing
changes from the pnrty that nominated
and supports bin*. An incident occur
red a few days ago illustrative and char
acteristic of the party politics of to-day.
A number of gentlemen, Democrats
and Republicans, met casually at a ho
tel on Fourth street, in this city, and
were exchanging some good-tempered
banter on politics. One of the party, a
Democrat, alluded to the peculiarity of
the present contest in the particular to
which I have referred. He proceeded
to name more than a score of hitherto
active, prominent, influential Republi
cans, merchants, manufacturers, known
to all who were present, who were open
ly supporting General Hancock. A Re
publican remarked, in reply : "Oh, that
amounts to nothing ; there are changes
at every election, Hancock will no
doubt lose as many as he will gain, and
in the end the swaps and changes will
be about even." "Do you know the
Republicans I have named ?" inquired
the Democrat. "I know them all,' 1 was
the reply. "Are they avowedly and
actively for Hancock?" "Well—yes!"
"Can you name me Democrat who will
vote for Garfield ?" The one Democrat
was not named.
Itehold Ills Record.
ClrarfleM K<'i'ullunn.
There is nothing that so hcassly dis
counts the public career of the Radical
nominee for President as the testimony
of his own party friends and organs.
We call to the witness stand the editors
of the New York Timet and the Tribune.
the two lending Radical organs, and all
that we ask ttie reader to take in is
what they said about tho Credit Mobil
ier fraud at the time the crime was be
ing inve-ligated by Congress, a body
composed of two-thirds Republicans.
We are particular in giving the dates
when the organs in question uttered
the naked truth. <*f course, the edi
tors at that time never dreamed that
Garfield would be nominated for Presi
dent. Read what they then said about
their present nominee. The statements
below are not Democratic lies, but Rad
ical truths, uttered when the hearts of
the writers possessed the fncts, nnd
gave impartial utterance:
From the New York Time*, February 19, I*7-1.
Messrs. lv-'lly and Garfield present a
most distressing figure. Their participa
tion in the Credit Mobilier affair is compli
cated by the most untortunutc contradic
tions of testimony.
From lie- N.w Y.>rk Tlmv, FLmarjf 20,1*73.
The character of the Credit Mobilier
was no secret. The source of its profits
was very well known at the time Congress
man bought it. Though Oakes Ames may
have succeeded in concealing hi* own mo
tive, which was to bribe Congressmen,
their acceptance of the stock was not on
that account innocent. The dishonor of
the act, as a participation in an obvious
fraud, still remains.
Some of thein have indulged in testmony
with reference to the matter which has
I been contradiets-sl. The committee die
\ tine.tli/ rejce.lt the tettimrmy of teveral oj the
i member. The* can only be. done on the
j ground that it it untrue. Hut untrue tet
! iimony given undrr oath it morally, \J not
legally, perjury.
It is thsi clear duty of Congress to visit
with punishment all who took Creslit Mo
bilier stock from Oakes Anna.
From the New York Tribune, F*i. I*7ll.
Jame* A. Garfield, of Ohio, had ton
shares ; never paid a dollar; received $829,
which, afts-r the investigation began, he
was anxious to have considered as a loan
from Mr. Oakes Ames to himself.
Well, the wickedness of all of It Is that
these men betraycsl the trust of the people,
deceived their constituents and, by evasions
and falsehosids, confessed the transaction
to be disgraceful.
From ths N.w York Tribune, Feb. jr., IHT.'L
Mr. Ames establishes very clear!v the
point that ho was not alone in this otfonso.
If he it to be erpelted for bribery, the men
toho icere bribed thould go uritb him.
Reader, remember the 7WP remark :
"Mr. Garfield presents a most distress
ing figure." And the Tribune: "James
A. Garfield of Ohio, had ten shares ;
never paid a dollar," and, "If Ames is
to be expelled for bribery, the men who
were bribed should go with him," Con
gress did not heed the remarks. Aines
was expelled, and it killed him. But
Garfield, Kelley A Co. still hold seats in
Congress, and the former has the impu
dence to ask the honest voters of this
country to elect him President. Well,
that won't happen.
Bubpwoaa were issued .Saturday and
are now being served on witnesses in
the case of George 8. Smith, of Phila
delphia, and Christian ]x>ng and K. J.
MoCune, of Hhippensburg, charged with
corrupt solicitation of members of the
Legislature, An effort will be made
to have these cases tried at the October
term of court.
General Garfield's Defense.
From I'lillstlelplil* Tltn.
A campaign life of General Garfield,
written by Colonel Russell H. Connell,
of Massachusetts, gives General Gar
field's defense of his Credit Mobilier
business. Colonel Connell spent some
days at General Garfield's residence
gathering data for bis campaign life of
the Republican candidate for President,
and as the statement given about the
Credit Mobilier transactions is in the
first person it mAy be accepted as Gen.
Garfield's official answer to the grave
accusations which have con fronted him
in his national contest.
We copy elsewhere the circumstantial
statement made b> General Garfield,
and there will bo very common regret
among fair-minded men of all parties
that he has attempted any explanation
if ho could not ofler one more satisfac
tory than that given through Colonel
Connell. It is plausible as far as it
goes, hut its fatal defect is in the fact
that it omits the two most vital features
of the charges he assumed to expluin.
He is entirely silent on the only docu
mentary evidence that appear* to sus
tain Mr. Ames and condemn General
Garfield, and that is a memorandum,
presented to the committee by Mr.
Ames, purporting to be in General Gar
field's own handwriting, claiming much
more than he had received on his Credit
Mobilier stock. If that memorandum
was in General Garfield's handwriting,
there is no escnpe for him from either
the charge of purchasing the stock or
the more serious charge of deliberately
falsifying to exculpate himself from his
error. The testimony of Mr, Ames on
this point was given on the 291h of
Januury, 1873, as follows :
Q. You may state whether, in conversa
tion with you, Mr. Garfield claim*, as he
claimed before us, that the only transaction
between you was borrowing S3OO. A. No,
sir ; he did not claim thst with inc.
tj. State all that occurred in conversa
tion between you. A. 1 have had two or
three interviews with Mr. Garfield., lie
wants to put it on the basis of a loan.
(j. Did he claim that it was in fact a
loan ? A. No, he did not.
ij. State all you know in reference to it.
A. I told him ho knew very well that
that was a dividend. 1 made out a state
ment and showed it to him at the time. Iu
one conversation he admitted it, and said,
a* noar as I can remember, there was $2,400
due in stock and bonds. Ho made a little
memorandum of SI,OOO and 1,400, and, as
I recollect, there was SI,OOO of Union
Pacific Railroad stock, SI,OOO of Credit
Mobilier stock, and S4OO of stock or bonds,
I do not recollect what.
Ij. When wa* that memorandum made?
A. It was made In my room. It was since
this investigation commenced.
1.1 Have you the memorandum that Mr.
Garfield made ? A. 1 have the figures
that he made.
[Paper shown to the committee contain
ing figures, as follows :]
You snv these figure* wcro made bv
Mr. Garfield"? A. Yes, sir.
(2- That was his idea of w hat was com
ing to him ? A. Yes, sir.
tj How did you happen to retain that
little stray memorandum ? A. I do not
know. I did not pay any attention to ft
at the time, until I found there was to be
conflict of testimony, and I thought it
might be worth preserving.
General Garfield never appeared he
fore the committee after the foregoing
testimony had been given hy Mr. Ames,
thu* leaving the aworn statement that
the memorandum wit* in his own hand
writing uncontradicted. He subsequent
ly issued an address to hi* constituent*,
many of whom had revolted against hi*
re election, in which he denied that he
had purchased or agreed to purchase
the stock, hut he did not allude to the
damaging memorandum, and now his
formal defense presented for the Presi
dential campaign, is also silent on the
point. Until General Garfield can deny
the genuineness of the memorandum,
which as yet i* undisputed, all attempU
at explanation of the Credit Mobilier
transaction must be worse than failures.
Another strange omission in hi* de
fense is his failure to take any note of
the unanimous finding of the Republi
can committee that reported to the
House February 18, 1873, through -Tudge
Poland, a* follow*:
The fact* in regard to Mr. Garfield, a*
found hy the committee, are that be agreed
with Mr. Ames to take ten shares of
Credit Mobilier stock, but did not pay for
tho same. Mr. Atnes received the eighty
per cent, dividend in bonds and sold them
for ninety-seven percent., and also received
I the sixty per cent, cash dividend, which,
together with tho price of the stock and
Interest, left a balance of $329. This turn
wa* paid over to Mr. Garfield by a check
on the Sergeant-at-Arms, and Mr. Garfield
then understood tbi* sum wa* the balance
of dividends after paying lor the stock.
General Garfield was then, a* new, a
member of the house, but he made no
protest on the floor agAinst the judg
ment of his political friends who thus
condemn him. This report and the
testimony of Mr. Ames in regard to
General Garfield'* memorandum of
Credit Mobilier profits due to him are
the two apparently conclusive facts
against him, and they are the two points
which he passes in silence in offering
his defeuse to his countrymen.
Another strange omission in General
Garfield's defense must attract very
general attention. In his explanation
of the De Golyer fee of five thousand
dollars, paid him for presumed profes
sional services, he is strangely silent on
the solemn judicial decisions of two
courts distinctly condemning his fee as
corrupt and illegal. In a suit brought
in the Cook county Circuit Court of
Illinois, to recover the full amount of
the corruption fund for the Washington
paving contraots, of which General Gar
field's fee was a part, the defense de
murred on the ground that the money
claimed was promised to influence the
official action of General Garfield, chair
man of the Committee on Appropria
tions. through whose official tavor the
fraudulent contracts bad to be paid
by government appropriations. Judge
Farwell sustained the demurrer because
such contract with General Garfield
was corrupt and could not be legally
enforced. The trial was bad at Chirago
in May, 1875, and the case was appealed
to the Supreme Court of the United
NUtes, where Justice Nwayne delivered
the opinion of the court in fJctober,
1879, in the following language :
Tho agreement with General Oarflold, a
member of Congress, to pay him $6,000 as
a contingent fee for procuring a contract,
which was itself made to depend upon a
future appropriation hy Congress—which
appropriation could only cotne from u
commlttco of which he was chairman—
was a sale of ollicial influence, which no
veil enn cover againgt the plainest princi
ples of public policy. No counselor-at-law
while nolding high office (much less a
minister of tho Gospel, etc.) ha* a right to
put himself in a position of temptation,
and under prctoneoof making a legal argu
ment exort his ollicial influence upon pub
lic officer* dependent upon his future no
tion. Certainly tho courts of justice will
never lend themselves to enforce contracts
obtained by such influence.
General Garfield cannot be ignorant
of the fact that the judicial records of
our highest courts have stamped the
De Golyer fee with infamy, and if lie had
any explanation to oiler on the subject,
he should have met these fearful judi
cial deliverances against him—the most
important of which was given by a Re
publican Supreme-Judge from his own
Upon the whole, it would have been
better for General Garfield to bo silent
on all charges than to have attempted
to answer tbem and yet be silent on
the points which most conclusively
condemn him.
Hancock a Soldier, Statesman, and
Constitutional Lawyer.
In a speech delivered at Columbus,
< >hio, on tlie 26th ult., Senator Thurman
said :
"There is not a man in this audience,
there is not a boy in this audience, who
doeH not know that Wintield Scott Han
cock was ono of the brightest, the ab
lest and most daring and brave of all
the soldiers that went to the war to
maintain the Union. (Applause.) No
man wdio ever commanded an army
j ever displayed more courage, more he
roism, or ever displayed more skill than
Hancock displayed from the time tie
went into the war until it was closed in
triumph. Everybody knew that ; but
there is one tiling thnt everybody does
not know. Hancock has been in the
army nil his life, and therefore you
might not at once suspect what is liter
ally the truth, that Hancock is not only
a soldier, but he is a constitutional law
yer and it good American statesman.
(Cheers.) 1 call him an American
statesman, i call him a constitutional
lawyer, and I have warrant for what 1
ssy. For when, after the close of the
rebellion, be was placed iu> military
Governor of 1/tuisiana and Texas before
they were admitted to representation
in Congress and to exercise their rights
as States, be showed in great contrast
to what some other military Governors
showed. He showed he knew there
was such a thing a* a free republic;
that be knew that the true, essen
tial and vital doctrine of every free re
public, and every free government, is
thai the military must be subordinate
tothecivil power—(Cheers)—and hence,
although in-sieged by a ravenous horde
of carpet-baggers to lend the aid of the
military to their meditated wrongs and
oppression* he said, "No;" that ttial by
jury was the right of all American citi
zens— ( Applause.)—equal justice in the
courts is the right of the American citi
xen; freedom from unlawful arrest is
the right of an American citizen, and 1
will not use the American flag, or Am
erican sword, or American bayoliet, or
American soldier to deprive the people
of these rights. (Cheers.) I fought
them in the war, and no man harder.
I helped to put down the rebellion—no
man did more according to his ability
and bis occasion—but now that the re
iiellion is put down, that is peace
all over the land ; now that the Consti
tution is obeyed in every nook and cor
ner ; now that not a hostile hand is
rai.ed against the Government of the
United Suites, I will be no party to op
pressing the people by unconstitutional
measures. That is what in efl'ecl Gen.
Hancock aaid."
What Hus the Credit Mohillerl
This question is frequently aked.
The New York Journal of 1 'ommerer in
anwer, says. "The original Credit Mo
bilier was a joint stock company found-
I ed in Paris on November 18, 1862, to do
a banking business, to facilitate the
construction of public works, and to de
velop national industry. It was called
by Mr. Berryer 'the greatest gambling
house the world bas ever seen.' It
dealt in everything, it 'promoted' every
thing. it divided as hich as 41 per ceut.
per annum to iu stockholder*, it made
all iu managers enormously rich, but it
came to grief, and in 1867 went into
liquidation. The Credit Mobilier of
America was organized in 1863, with a
capital of two and a half millions. In
January, 1873, the charter was pur
chased by a company authorized to con
struct the Union Pacific railroad, and
the stock was increased to $3,760,0tX).
This rose to great value (the profits
being made chiefly out of the construc
tion of that thoroughfare) and enor
mous dividends were declared. In
1872 in the course of some legal pro
ceedings in Pennsylvania it came out
that certain members of Congress and
the Vice President were either secretly
or openly connected with it as stock
holders. Congress investigated the scan
dal. The Senate committee made a re
port reoommending the expulsion of
an implicated Senator, and censuring
others, but aa his term expired in five
days no action wan taken on it. In the
House resolutions oensuriog two mem
bers were passed."
Several prominent persons were im
plicated in the dishonorable work of
bribing Congressmen, and ,Senator Pat
terson, Speaker Colfax, Congressman
Kelly, and JAMES A.GARFIELD were
all proven guilty of receiving stock as a
conjugation for political faoort. For proof
of thia aasertion examine the retard* of
Ooagrtu and filtt of the New York 7Vi
bunt and Time*.

business portion of Gibsonville, Sierra

Senator McDonald on Indlumi.
Interview In N>w Turk
"I haven't a doubt that wo shall car
ry Indiana by 10,000 majority," aaid the
" What? in October?"
" In October."
The writer expressed surprise at the
anticipation of HO decisive a result.
"There in no mystery about it," aaid
Senator Mcl>onald. "The Democracy
of the Slate are united more absolute
ly perhaps than they could have been
on any other ticket, save, of course, one
headed by Mr. Hendricks. Hancock,
though an Eastern man, is absolutely
unobjectionable, and the compliment
paid to Indiana in the nomination of
Mr. English is another strong reason for
unanimity there. Mr. English is highly
respected hy our people and deservedly
popular. Besides, he has been 'out of
politics,' HH the phrase is, for many
years. That is to say, he has not been
a candidate for any ofiice. Nevertheless
he has not ceased to take a lively inter
est in political affairs. So thai, while
he has not been identified with any of
the recent party feuds, local or othei
wise, which might have created against
him personal heartburning or party
jealousy, the people huve always known
"where to find him.' "
"Mr. English's nomination is satisfac
tory to Mr. Hendricks?"
"Reports have been directly to the
"I have already said that Governor
Hendricks is heartily committed to him.
So am I. So, undoubtedly, is Senator
Voorhees. In fact, there is but one sen
timent among Democrats throughout
the State—a sentiment cordially indors
ing the whole ticket as one which the
party everywhere will be certain to vote
for victoriously in November.
Our Orphan Schools.

The old war Governor, Andrew G*
Curtin, as he stood with us last week at
the reunion of the I'ennsylvania Re
serves, called to mind the sympathetic
incident thut was the inception of our
Soldier Orphan Schools, i >ll the night
of November 20, 18G3, two soldier nr
phans came to the doors of the Kieou
live Mansion and asked for bread. The
Governor's wile took them in, fed them,
and car.-d for them for the night, and
told her husband of the incident. From
this came the institution of Soldier or

could not care for themselves, and
Pennsylvania, through her Governor,
never instituted a nobler institution.
