THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 8, 1880.
The Press and Courts A Brilliant Perora
tion. Hen. F. E. Beltzlioever's Gettysburg Speech.
In 1CC4 Sir E. Decriug was expelled
from Parliament and confined in the tower
for printing his speeches. Jeffreys, when
he get en the bench, pursued the peer
printers with the direst whip of judicial
scorpions. The venerable Richard Baxter
was imprisoned and lined for printing his
holy works. Richard Steele was expelled
from Parliament and imprisoned and lined
for printing the most harmless and beauti
ful thoughts. ItilOSO Chief Justice Screggs
declared that by the law of England no
person whatever could expose te the pub
lic knowledge anything that concerned the
allaiis of the public without license from
the king. The harmless book of speits
was solemnly burned by the public hang
man. Leng acts of Parliament were passed
te shut the mouths and silence the pens of
men. The Star Chamber perpetrated its
most disgraceful acts of tyranny and crime
in its efforts te subdue the press
and prohibit printed thought. Fines, im
prisonment, the pillory, the branding iron,
the rack, the hangman's fire atSmithville,
and all the inventions of despotic cruelty
and ingenuity and wickedness in the power
of the state were brought with unrelenting
liendishness te punish the printers. But
all the acts of Parliament, all the judg
ments of corrupt courts, all the royal proc
lamations, all the old Bailey trials, all the
atrocious Tyburn executions did net sub
jugate the press. The lives of heroic men
were found for sacrifice until the demon of
persecution was appeased, and the day be
gan te dawn. These who died for the lib
erty of the press, in these long and bloody
years, challenge the fame of the martyrs of
all times. The holy men who laid down
their Jives for the sake of their religion
died with the glowing hope of immortali
ty in heaven before their enchanted vision
and cheering them at the stake. They died
in the firm and unfaltering belief that
thereby they secured an eternity of bliss.
The martyrs for the liberty of the press
died with the sublime and god-like belief
that by their death humanity might be
ushered into light and freedom. Theirs
were the most unselfish and pure and
matchless motives which ever inspired anil
impelled men te dare and die.
It the press is the strongest supporter
of the integrity of the law and thesuicst
security for the purity of its administra
tion. A foreigner, visiting the court, said
te Mansfield that he was surprised te find
se few people there. "Ne matter," said
the chief justice, " we sit every day in the
newspapers." The newspaper secures
that publicity te all the actions of the court
which is the chief source of their purity,
and the most certain assurance of the care
fulness and wisdom of their decrees. It
will be a sad day for public justice and the
purity of the law when the petty tyranny
of an indifferent or corrupt judge can,
with impunity, arbitrarily punish the
newspaper that criticises his action. There
is no incense or sanctified influence en the
judicial ermine in a republic which can
ever defy the watchfulness of the press.
It will forever fellow malfeasance and ig
norance and turpitude and tyranny in the
courts, as everywhere else, with a vigi
lance as omniscient and sleepless and
scathing as the ubiquity of that Ciesar
against whose imperial pursuit DcQitiucy
said the pathless deserts of the Reman
empire were but a transient and futile se
curity. c- -.:
On the reef of Agamemnon's palace, in
Arges, a watchman sat from year te year
waiting and watching the north for the
great signal of fire which should bring the
glad tidings of the fall of Trey. Leng
years had elapsed and le ! as it drew near
morning there was a light in the sky ami
the watchman cried aloud and messengers
ran abroad throughout Arges bidding men
te burn th.tnk offerings and incense en the
The old men of the city aiid the chief t
counsellers gathered together, and while
they were talking the Queen came forth
and proclaimed that the Greeks had taken
the great city of Trey. When they doubted
hew she had heard the news se speedily
she-said : "They made a great lire en
Mount Ida which is ever Trey ; and from j
Ida the light passed te Lcnines, and from i
Lcmnes te the mountain of Athes ; Athes !
sent it en southward across the sea, en a
path of geld, like the sunshine, te Makis
tus, in Euboca;andMakistusteMcssapius
and Messapius, kindling a great pile of
heath, sent it bright as is the moon, across
the plain of Asepus te the cliffs of Cithae Cithae
ren ; from Cithacren it traveled brighter
than before by Lake Gorgepis te the hill
of Aegiplanctus, which loeketh down upon
the Sarenic gulf, and licncc te Arachneus
which is hard by the city. Thus," said
the Queen, "hath the King sent the tid
ings te me."
Mere than three thousand years have
rolled away since this grand and rugged
and stalwart telegraphic line of light lit
up the mountain-tops of the world ever
lauds and seas, te carry the tidings of
great national victory and joy. What a
sublime and prophetic picture of the future
did that old majestic king of men paint en
the sky en that eventful night, as he sent
the war news Hashing en golden pinions of
lire from Mount Ida te the Sarenic sea.
The great signal fires have long gene out
en Ida and Athes, and the cliffs of Cithac Cithac
eon are silent and dark, but the immortal
spirit of injury and the insatiable thirst for
for knowledge cannot die. In all ages
it has dared the terrors of unknown and
savage seas, and invaded the wilds of
untredden lands and filled the world
with the imperishable monuments of
its unceasing search for knowledge. It
has seized the speed and power of steam
and bridled the lightning te bear its
winged words from land te land. Its con
quests achieved under the genius of liberty
have girdled the earth with fires of intelli
gence which burn perennial in their bright
ness. But net alone te the lightning nor
te the steam, nor te the press, nor te all
the handiwork of human cunning and hu
man skill de we ewe the victories which
they have wen, but te this immortal
longing after knowledge the eternal
spirit of the chainlcss mind, which
Ged breathed into man with the breath of
life and which will go with him en beyond
the goal of conquest here. It lest Eden te
the race. It chained Prometheus te the
rock. It burned the martyrs of the press
at Tyburn and Smithfield. It was the si
lent pillar of cloud by day and of fire by
nijlht which led the heroes of humanity
through the long, dark, despotic years of
the past up te freedom. Ihere arc no
mere naniinj: swords te bar the way of man
knowledge. There is no tyrannical Jupiter
te impale the impious mortal who dares te
seize the belts of thought. There arc no
stakes and racks and tortures for the fol
lowers of peer old Jehn Twyn. It is new
the greatest glory of life te think and the
grandest liberty te utter, and lie -who
highest dares te scale the mountainous,
craggy steeps of thought or dives the
deepest into the eternal abyss of unsolved
doubt stands as the world's real here.
There are no bounds te the universe of
time and space, and no pent-up Utica re
strains the endless realm of thought. It
expands like the outward-going wave for
ever, and its pioneer in the future, as in
the past, must be that silent gleaner of the
world dropping its aggregated gathering
of ideas daily, from year te year and from
age te age, into the eager ear of humanity
"ever enlightening, always confirming
grand truths, ever baptizing infant peoples
and alwavs new. "

Senater Conkling is understood te bear
ranging his business with a view te pass
ing the summer and early autumn in Eu
rope. Cameren will make the round of
the watering places.
A letter has been received from Senater
McDonald, of Indiana, in which he ex
pi esses perfect confidence that the Demo
crats will carry Indiana at the October

charge of the trust reposed in him will

It was Luke P. Pelaud, new claimed te
be a supporter of Garfield, who, as chair
man of the Credit Mebilicr investigating
committee reported : " The facts in re
gard te Mr. Garfield as found by the com
mittee arc identical with the case of Mr.
Kelley te the point of reception of the
check for $320. This sum icas paid eccr te
Mr. Gurjicld by a check en the sergeant-at-nrmst,
and Mr. Garfield then understood this
sum was the balance of dicidends after pay
ing for the stock. "
The somewhat well-known authoress of
a work en life in St. Petersburg, which
was published a year or se age at Brussels
and suppressed by the police in Paris, has
prepared for publication an account of the
conuectien.of Mr. Jewell while minister in
Russia with the tee celebrated affair of the
Grand Duke Nicholas and the empress's
jewels which will be read with great inter
est at the present time. The archives of
the state department contain some curious
information en the same subject which
may see the light before the close of the
Mr. Weaver and his friends expect,
they say, te poll the full Greenback vote
in Wisconsin for .their electoral ticket.
This is pretty close en te thirty thousand,
and much mere than twe-tfiirds of it
comes from the Republicans. Hancock, it
is claimed, will poll very nearly the full
Democratic vote, and net mere than five
thousand will, it is thought, vote with the
Greenbackers. This calculation would
give the state te the Hancock electors, and
prominent Wisconsin Republicans new
freely admit that the situation is net at all
encouraging for their side.
The Springfield Republican, of strong
Republic.ui inclinations says : " It is net
judgment of Garfield te say that he is
'spotted,' 'tainted,' 'seriously compro
mised,' etc., for these are historic facts.
His reputation never can be as clean as it
would have been but for these things;
never can stand with that of Edmunds,
for instance, or that of Hancock. This
may be terrible, it may be ttnjust ; but it
is the injustice of that nemesis which
every public life must confront, and which,
in obedience te the law of human nature,
ranks the suspected and the accused below
the unsuspected and the stainless."
Hartranft fears that if he accepts the
office of collector of customs at Philadel
phia while congress is net in session he
may have trouble when he attempts te
draw his salary, and he is in doubt what
course te take. He needs his salary mere
than he does tjie honor, and is net iu 4
position te disfigure one feature of his face
te spite another. As much as he would
like te be collector te get the best of Sena Sena
eor Den Cameren, who pigeon-holed his
nomination in the senate, he is forced te
pause ere he leaps out of the postmaster
ship with a geed salary into the collector
ship with no salary at all, especially as
there is some doubt as te what Cameren
will de about it next winter.
New Yerk Werld: "Seme of our Repub
lican contemporaries seem te be strangely
anxious te get it understood that during
the closing months of 187G or the earlier
months of 1877 Gen. Hancock notified one
of his superior officers that he considered
Mr. Tildcn te have been duly elected Pres
ident of the United States, adding of
course that if Congress declared Mr. Tilden
te have been se elected, and if Mr. Tilden
should take the oath of office as president,
Gen. Hancock would obey his orders en
and after the 4th of March, 1877. It is te
be hoped the Republicans may succeed in
previug this, because if they should suc
ceed in proving it they would greatly
strengthen Gen. Hancock'sclaimsupen tli
confidence of his countrymen."
A warm personal friend of General Gar
field, a native of Ohie, but new a resident
of Jersey City, wrote a private letter un
der date of June leth, as fellows : " Per
haps you would like te knew hew political
matters leek here in Jersey. Frem a very
careful observation, which I have taken
great pains te make as thorough as I knew
hew, I am convinced that the nomination
of Garfield for whom, you knew, I have
always had a very warm side personally
was a very unfortunate one for the Repub
licans and falls net only as one, but as a
dozen wet blankets upon them. They re
ceive it in a very contemptuous manner
and there is no heart in the support they
propose te offer te the ticket. The expo
sure, again repeated, of the jobs in which
the nominee has been engaged arc proving
damaging in the extreme. Arthur is ex
ceedingly unpopular here in Jersey City."
Senater Beck, of Kentucky, will go into
the campaign with his coat off. He says :
' The ticket means certain victory. The
contest en the part of the Democracy is,
as Senater Bayard terms it, one of re
union, whereas en the part of the Republi
cans it is waged for the distinction of con
stitutional liberty. Frem every part of the
country the people are speaking out. The
Seuth has perfect confidence in him, and
there he is irresistible. Indiana while in
dorsing him feels a double interest iu the
success of a ticket where her esteemed
and illustrious son, English, holds an hon
ored place. The work of the Cincinnati
convention healed all dissensions net
alone in New Yerk, but all ever the coun
try. There are no jealousies between the
illustrious men whose names were before
that convention, all is perfect harmony, and
this is supplemented by the strong sup
pert of these who knew him as a soldier.
I anticipate for him in Pennsylvania se
grand a victory that it will paralyze the
Republican party ami pave the way te its
A strong pressure has been brought te
bear upon the administration te effect the
removal of all clerks and employees in
Washington suspected of Democratic affil
iatiens. A very respectable proportion of
the othcebelders are known te nava JJerao JJerae
ctatic sympathies, and new, since the elec
tion of Hancock is considered by every
one as a foregone conclusion, many ethers
who have held still tengnes and have
always been looked upon as Republicans
are whispering that it is time for a change,
and that the people want it and intend
te have it. Consequently the ire of
the extreme wing of the radical party
has been wrought up te an intense
pitch, and the demand is that an ex
ample be made of all who cannot
prove themselves te be hide-bound parti
sans of the Republican party. Several
clerks were discharged from the war de
partment en the first of the month for no
ether reason than that they were Demo
crats, and it is said mere are te fellow.
Recently a lady was discharged from the
treasury department because she had ex
pressed her belief that Tilden was fairly
elected in 1876, and although an array of
powerful influence, including a personal
request from General Garfield himself, was
exerted te secure her reinstatement, Sec
retary Sherman positively refused te rein
state her, andj intimated that no Demo
crats could expect any favors iu his de
partment. J EIVJZUlIIS.
