An Example in l'olitics.
The following complimentary notice of
one of the ablest and purest men of the
empire state, is from the Biughaniton Jit
pvhh'ran. and we transfer it to our col
umns with more than ordinary pleasure,
because we know that what is said o
Mr. I'LATT is truthful anil more than mer
ited. The remarks are also applicable to !
many active politicians in this state, nota-1
ble among whom are (J. A. GKOW, and I
Secretary QUAY :
Tlnf selection of the Hon. T. C. Plattof j
Owego, as the representative of the Em
pire State on the National Republican
Committee and his selection by the
Chairman as a member of the Executive
Committee, must be very gratifying, not :
only to his many friends, but to all good j
Republicans in the Southern Tier. It is a j
lifting reeogeition of the best and most
active element in the Reprblican party,
and a worthy compliment to a worthy
But aside from this, the matter suggests
some comparisons which may be studied
with profit by would-be leaders in political
affairs. In almost every town and city,
there are men who aspire to be political
leaders and who resort to all manner of
deceptions and tricks to gain temporary
control. These melt seem to think that
success is valuable at any price, and some
of them, doubtless, wonder why they al
ways remain local politicians—why they
do not reach a notable place in politics.
To these men, t he success and preferment
of such a mun afford a profitable example.
Why is he influential in State and even
National affairs? Why is he a recogui/.ed
leader in his party throughout the State?
Is it because he has shown high quali
ties of statesmanship? Is it because he
is eloquent and persuasive in speech? Is
it not rather because he is as true, as pure,
as high-minded in political as in business
affairs—because men have found from long
experience that he is frank and manly
truthful in statement, and wholly free
from the small and sharp tricks that will
some times iuake a man successful as a
ward politician, but an absolute failure in
any higher and more honorable place?
These, as we interpret them, are the
main elements of Mr. Piatt's success; and
the same is true of almost, if not quite,
every other man who attains to high posi
tion in political matters. What a pity it
is, then that the small polilions, often
times men of much force and ability, can
not see and learn wisdom from such an
example as the political lifeofsueh a man
as Mr. Piatt supplies.
The lltica Herald (Rep,) has a very
strong article against General Grant as a
Presidential candidate, saying that "the
signs are unmistakable that General
Grant can never receive another Presi
dential nomination at the hands of a Re
publican convention without first encoun
tering an organized and determined oppo-;
sition which would be fatal to his cordial j
and united support by the masses of the |
party in 1880." Of Grant's supporters j
and their aims it remarks :
"Two classes of people are still clam
orous for Grant. One class includes the
traders in politics who hope to see in his !
return to the White House a return of
their day of harvest, so rudely interrupt
ed. The other and larger class includes
the army of moral cowards, the timid i
folk who are still oppressed by the night
mare of the civil war, and think that j
Grant is needed at Washington to repel!
some new imaginary attack upon the cap
ital, which only he can conquer. It will
be a sad day for the United States when
a combination of these two classes can
boast that it has dictated the government
of the nation."
