THE ISSUES ALL WITH US AND THE
ACCIDENTS NOT AGAINST US."
Hew Uarlleld Thinks Treachery te Ills
Country Fidelity te Ills Faction.
The following letter from tlie Hen. J.
S. Black, of Pcnnsylv.uila, sent in icply te
au invitation te attend the gicat New
Yerk Democratic mass meeting of Thurs
day evening, but net received in time te
be read that evening, will command the at
tention of thinking men of all shades of
BitecKiE, Yerk, Ta., Sept. 22, 1880.
Gentlemen : I cannot attend the meet
ing of the Democratic-Republicans at the
city of New Yerk en the 2M iust. But I
can assure you of iny concurrence in its
object, and if time and space pcimittcd, I
could give you icasen for the laith that is
with in me.
I trust we are approaching the cud of our
long struggle against the oppie.ssien and
fraud of the anti-constitutional patty. They
have sought the destruction of our gov
ernment by every possible means in their
teach. By our government I mean the
whole system of fundamental law under
which we live including the granted pow
ers of the fedcrai union, the neserved
rights of the states and the personal liber
ty of the citizcu. These three aic all vital
points of our political organization, and
the life of the nation depends as much
upon one as another. If you want te Jul 1
a mau it makes no diil'etcnce whether you
knock out his brains, stab him through
the hcait or tear open his bowels cither
way he is done for. Certainly an Amcii
can who forcibly tramples en civil Hbcity
or by vielence extinguishes the tights of
the states is net less a traitor te his country
than ene who resists the just authority of
the federal government.
I need net lciniud you with wli.it mani
fold treachery our opponents get posses
sion of the power which they have fiight
fully abused. At the beginning of the war
they solemnly pledged themselves te use
the forces put into their hands for the sole
purpose of defending the fcdctal govern
ment and maintaining the supremacy of
the constitution and laws, with all the
rights of the states and the people unim
paired ; and they premised that when this
was accomplished the war should instantly
cease. In consideration of this special
pledge, superadded tothcireaths, the men
and the money wcie put into their hands
which completely subdued the aimed op
position of the Seuth te the Union. But
when the conflict was ever they announced
that the victory instead of defending the
government had revolutionized and over
thrown it ; that the whole decliinc of state
rights was exploded and personal libeity
was consequently a thing of the past ; that
the military was above the civil aulheiity,
and through that instalment ality they
(the central oligarchy) might kidnap, im
prison and kill citizens without jiulge or
juty. The right of sulfi-igc had ceased te
exist except when it wasexcieiscd by their
pcrmisssen and in a way which suited their
purposes. Dcstieying all the election laws
of half the states of the Union, they tilled
the stale efliccs with notorious thieves and
etewded Cengicss with ledctnptienless
legucs who did net pictend te any title ex
cept what they get by feice and li.ntd, and
in all the states they claimed tiic tight te
be represented at state elections by the
bayonets of their standing army. Would
you have me enumerate the con upturns
generated by this infamous system?
Count the stai. if you can ; try te number
the sands en the seashore.
Their idea of a strong government was
fully developed. Six years after the war
fraud and feice had made it sf much
stronger than libctty, justice and law, that
the constitution had but seven fi ieuds in
the Senate and less thin a tliinl of the
members in the lower house. Bui the
principles of free and honest government
were net destined te be crushed out for
ever. The moral. influence of the Dem
ocracy was itself a power which abashed
the anti-constitutional leaders and be
numbed their faculty for evil-doing.
Thousands of true men, who in moments
of error or alarm had wandered from the
track of their piiuciplcs, "hastened te re
trace their steps and te icgaiu the read
which alene leads te peace, honor and
safety." Truth and justice gradually re
gained their natural ascendency in the
popular heart. First, the federal Heuse
of Representatives was redeemed ; then
the Senate, and in 18W an overwhelming
majority of the people attested their devo
tion te free principles by voting for a
Democratic president. This looked like a
successful vindication of free government,
but it was net. The anti-constitutional
party has an advantage which mete than
counterbalances thcsticugthef the people.
It can cheat at elections, il can falsify
the count, it can forge returns. "There's
the respect that makes calamity of se long
We are about te tepcat the experiment.
We may be swindled again, but there is
net any doubt that our honest majei ity is
greater than it was before. The issues ate
all with us and the accidents arc net
against us. Our candidate is net only un
exceptionable, but admirable, and has the
uubeunded confidence of the whe'e coun
try in his talents, integrity and patiietisin.
The impulses of personal fiicndship and
the duties of fair political opposition alike
require me te speak of General Gai field.
Intellectually heis iitst among Ihc politi
cians of his party net the shaipest or
strongest, but the most gifted and best
cultivated. His piivatc life is stainless,
and in everything unconnected w ith poli
tics his behavior is regulated by principles
of the soundest morality. But m public
affairs he does net act upon his convictions ;
when he passes into the domain of politics
his conscicnce loses its grip ; and for his
party he is willing te de any wrong which
will promote their interests, or play any
card hew false seever which will win them
power. This surrender of his meial and
mental integrity is the couditien upon
which he holds his high place in the all'cc all'cc all'cc
tionsef the party he belongs te. Treachery
te his country is fidelity te his faction. If
at any time in the last fifteen years he had
given way te Ins own sense of right, sup
ported the constitution and laws in a spirit
of pure justice, refused te defile himself
with election frauds, withheld his counte
nance fiem executive corruption, or de
nounced the feiciblc instilment of thieves
in state efliccs, he would have con vetted
himself into a Democrat and been expelled
from the communion of the anti-constitutional
This moral prostitution te bad political
purposes is far from being uncommon.
Men naturally geed have yielded te it in
all times and in alt countries where there
is a party unprincipled enough te demand
it and strong enough te reward it. But
Gen. Garfield's public career furnishes
mere striking examples of it than the his
tory of any individual I have known. Let
me give you a case : After theWar at the
time of perfect peace inthestate of In
diana, where no war had- ever been, cer
SEPTEMBER, 27, 1880
tain military officers, bciug instructed
from Washington that they were above
the civil authorities, had kidnapped and
were about te kill thtee citizens for no
ether offense defined by any law and with
out the pretence of a trial by court or jury.
If this could be done there was manifestly
no security lett for life or property. Plain
ly it could net be done without a Hat vie
latien of the constitution, which in ex
press terms feibadc it. But the men who
then ruled us with a rodef ireninsisted upon
it and we could net be certain that the
judges, state and national, might net be
subdued by their influence The hearing
of the cause before the supreme court was
a great crisis in the constitutional history
of our country. There was a place in the
argument which nobody could fill se well
as General Gat field, and I besought him te
help us in this desperate extremity te res
cue American libeity fiem the utter de
struction with which it was threatened.
He responded with noble alacrity, and
made a great argument in which he pievcd
net only the continued existence, but the
inestimable value of the constitution. He
demonstrated that the right of trial by
jury at all times and all places was inde
sttuctib'.e, and that any officer, civil or
military, would violate his oath if he at
tempted te put the military above the
civif authority. He affirmed the whele
Democratic deeliine en the subject and
showed it te be incentcstibly light. His
sincerity was undoubted, for, like the rest
of us, he engaged in the cause as a labor
of love, without fee or any rewaid except
the thanks of tt no men.
Such were his tiue convictions. But
when he came te deal with the same sub
ject in his political capacity he surrendered
everything te his paity. He voted for a
military despotism and a regular system
of kidnapping and murder in all the states
of the Seuth. In the same act wctc ether
ptoviniens which he ccttainly understood
te be in dhect conflict with every aiticle
and every section of the constitution. In
all this he did net transgiess, like ethers,
in ignorance or in passion ; he sinned
against light and knowledge and en a cold
calculation of p.tttisau policy. It K an in
finite pity that such a man should be net
onlyf.ilse te his country but false te him
self. What makes all this very much worse is
his denunciation of Geneial Hancock for
saying that the military was constitu
tionally subeidinalc te the civil power,
and that libci ty was still the inheiitance
of the American people; for these wcie
prepositions which he himself had asserted
and knew te be tine.
It might be expected thai the course of
a man se influenced would frequently de
fect from the straight path, and one gicat
a niatien we cannot but lemcmbcr.
Mr. Tilden was elected in 1S70. A f.ilse
leluin was the only lcsoutce against him.
I de net believe that General Garfield, if
let alone, would commit an election fraud
any mom than he would steal a heisc or a
sheep. But when the managers of his par
ty demanded his aid in a gteal swindle he
could net iedise. Under that coercion he
went down te Louisiana and Iheic found
it absolutely rataiu that the Tilden elec
tors had been "duly appointed" at a legal
and full poll, se peaceably conducted that
theie was net even a squabble about it in
Ihc whole stale. And Ihc appointment se
made was attested by and recorded upon
the ccitiiicalcs and the oaths of election
efiiceis adverse te the appointees,
in all their feeling-, and wishes.
The u) was no caithly excuse for deny
ing this ; no contradiction of it could he
honest. Te count the st.ite for Hayes was
a thing that could be done only by iinpu
dent and liumitiatcd fiaud. Fer a time
I hoped that Geneial Gai field's shaie in
that gicat crime had consisted in passive
acquiescence, and I am surprised by the
proels icccntly lueught feiwaid of his ac
tive assistance in its pci puliatien. His
judgment as a member of the elej'e.nl
remitus-sieu was a thing te be expected,
for he must long befete that have con
vinced himself that a fraud was as geed a
way as any ether of slcelinga piesidcnt.
In a political game he did net think that
anybody had moral sense enough te ab
stain from tin owing a die which he himself
had leaded te win the stake.
This liability le be lushed into evil
courses by his paity associates has In ought
upon him much odium which he does net
deserve in the transactions of the Credit
Mebilicr. The sleck distributed by Oakes
Ames was intended te influence the legis
lation of Cengicss corruptly. He and the
company who put it into his hands meant
business, and that business was bribery.
Undoubtedly these members who took it
knowing the natuie of the" thing wcie
great criminals and wholly unworthy In
ret tin their scats. But General Gatlield,
though he ccttainly agiecd te take the
stock and did actually takedividends upon
it, had no suspicion of is connection with
ihc Union Pacific railroad or of the con
flict which its p session might eicalc lc
twecu his private interests and his public
duty. He was as guiltless as the child un
born or any dishonest meaning about the
whole business. I believe this net meiely
because he told me se, but because it is
probable in itself and correboiatcd by
many circumstances. If he had stuck te
it he would have been credited by all men
as implicitly as he was by me. Fearing
that his political friends might influence
him te dcpait from it I wiote beseeching
him te stand fast upon the defense he hail
made tome. That he did net take this
advice is the bittctcst regret of his life.
But " the patty" would net let him take
it. The accusation struck at the highest
heads in the Heuse and Scuate. They had
but one answer, and that was a positive
denial of the fact that any stock had ever
been taken by them ; and en that line
they expected air. Ames te swear them
through. General Gai field, for the bene
fit of ethers and te his own great injury,
united in making this false defence. Their
witness failed them and they were all con
victed. After the lcpeit of the committee
I w role te air. Blaine the letter which has
been extensively published and which was
au effort te put General Garfield back upon
the true gieund which he never ought te
have abandoned. But it was tee late.
I rcgict sincciely that General Gai field
is a candidate or that he should be placed
in any position which calls for criticism en
his conduct as a public man. But I have
said nothing that will be new te him, for;
in many forms, at many tunes, m sundry
ways, publicly and privately, I have given
this same censti action of his acts and ex
horted him te come out fiem the evil and
corrupt fellowship which drags him down
while it pietcnds te elevate him.
I hope that en all the issues the fiiends
of liberty and justice and law and honest
government will make themselves hcaid
by the nation se cleat ly that at the next
election the popular condemnation of the
anti-constitutional faction will be over
whelming. In the meantime let us watch
as well as pray th.it Ihc ceuutry be net

General Butler referred iu his speech te
the distribution among the several states,
at the close of General Jacksen's adminis
tration, of a lanre amount of money then
in tlie fedcrai treasury, as evidence of
Democratic frugality ami wisdom m ad
ministration. We have had several in
quiries for particulars of this distribution,
which has faded from the minds of old
men and was a revelation te younger men,
especially the amount Pennsylvania re
ceived. The distribution was made, we
believe, in proportion te the representa
tion of the various states in Congress. A
letter addressed te Auditor General SchcU,
requesting particulars of the amount paid
Pennsylvania elicited this respense :

Hen. James P. UuuJkur Sir : In
reply te your several inquiries I have te
say, that the act of Congress authorizing
the deposit with the several states of the
surplus in the treasury above five millions
of dollars was passed en the 22d of June,
18e(J. This sum was estimated by Mr.
Levi Woodbury lobe between $33,000,000
and $38,000,000. It was closed at about
On the 4th January, 1837, the secretary
of the treasury wrote te 'the treasmcr of
the state of Pcnusylvenia that the amount
te be paid te the state of Pennsylvania
During the year 1837 Pennsylvania re
ceived the fust threo quarteily payments,
amounting te $2,807,514.78.
The boeksat the office of the tieasury
of the United States show that only this
amount was paid te the state en the account
By the act of the 20th of October, 1837
5 statutes, 201 the fourth installment of
said deposits with the states was postpon
ed until the 1st day or January, 1830. There
is no record in the said office, or in the
proper office in this state, that thelbuith
installment was ever paid.

When this distribution among the
states of the thirty-six or thiity-eight mil
lions of dollars in the treasury was eidered
by Congress, the public debt of the United
States had been viitually extinguished.
That is, it was tcpeitcd at the close of the
pieced ing fiscal year at only $37,513. It is
net likely within the next bundled years
te leach se low a liguie. Picvieus te this
extinguishment of the public debt under
General Jacksen's administration, its
highest figure was in 181G, at the clobe of
the war with Great Britain, when it
l cached $127,3:51,933. Between 18:13 and
1801 the maximum of the debt was in
1831, when it was lepeitcd at $08,304,796.
Then followed the civil war and war
settlement period, when the public debt
reached its highest notch, $2,773,230,173,
