" America is a nallcn, not n league,"
whllo tho democracy conlent themselves
limply with "re-afllnnlng their fnith in tho
" permanency of tho federal Union." In
oilier words, Ihe republicans dcclitro that
the United Stttca is a nation, whllo tho de
mocracy only ncccpt of it as a compact or
confedctatlon of tUtcs. Tho cna accepts
It as a government of tho people, by the
people, for tho people, whllo tho other sim
ply takes It as a loaguo of (t iles, not a
government of tho people. Tho Idea that
tho United States Is n naticn, curies with
it tho Idea of Indissolubility, of tho right
ofoilf preservation. The idea of a con
fedcracy, concedes that thotio which binds
the federal Union together may ba snapped
at tho will ot tho majority of any ono state,
and whllo It may not concede tho nlnoluto
right of secession, yet it precludes tho Idea
of tho tight of tho government of tho
whole, or of n majority of tho states, coer

That this was the position of tho demo

of tho outbreak of tho war it plainly stated
by President lluchanan m his annual mcj.

in, after stating that a state has no "inherent

It has tho inherent "right of resistance,"

Tho Times finds on Inquiry in tho proper
piaitor that Mr. Tilden, whoso voluntary
contributions to the support of the na'lon's
llfo do not nppear whero thoso ot eithers
nro found, alio took caro not to contribute
his duo share of tho Involuntary contribu

ways to pay just ai liltlo a3 was possible nf
tho tax duo from him on tho great wealth
ho was acquiring dining tho ten jcxrs or
moro that a tlx was imposed upon in

August, lHG 1 , and Imposed n lax upon tho
incomes ot Mint jeir lo lie collected to tho
Bpring of 1802. Amendments wero mado
in July, 1802, and at various later periods,
as is well known. Every ono wa rcepilrcd

but alter that ho pcems to hnvcromo to tho
conclusion that it was cheaper for hitn to
malic no return, nut t leave tno assessor
to gunes at his Incomo, and then to pay a
tax upon tho Bum so guessed nt, with tie
penalty of fifty per ccr.t added, which the
law imposed tor falluro to make a return.
THE INCOME TAX DODOKD rOU NINE VEA11S,
And so Mr. Tilden mado no return of Ms
incomo after that of 1803 for all tho years
during which that tax continued, which
was down to 1872. We presume no ono
will suggest that year nfter rar ho submit
ted to pay a penalty for not making a re
turn nud to pay besides Ids jmtfhmcof
tho tax. The inevitable oncluMou h that
ho found it cheaper not to do ai an hotest
citizen, ns a smcerc upholder of tho gov-
crnment would have done, viz., make out
a correct return ot his Income nnd pay the
tax: upon it.
If anv one has any llntrerini: doubt unon

them that during tLe entire! petiod of the
Imposition of tho income tax Mr. Tilden,

It was during those years that S. J. Til

which alons he admits under ca'h that he
received in ono year $20,000 In cash nud
large amount of bonds ; that ho was a part

Galena and Chicago rallrcal company in
Illinois; that ho wa3 appropriating to him

If the laws wero enforced against our
