True Courue of the Democracy In the
Pr?sent Cr?ela or the Country-The
Constitution aalt Ie-'A Letter from
John Qui it ey Adams.
The following letter from John Quincy
Adams, late the Democratic candidate
for Governor of Massachusetts, to a
citizen of Missouri, has been given to the
world through thc columns of tho St.
Louis Republican :
Qcixcr, May 6,1871.
A. Warren Kchry, Esq. :
DEAR SIR-I have the honor to ac
know ?edge thc receipt of a comtinnica
tion trout you enclosing two extracts
from newspapers upon which you request
juy criticism; and I infer from your let?
ter that you wi?h to learn mv opinion
upon the public questions discussed in
those articles. . .
You are quite welcome to know them,
if you arcj willing to accept them as
simply thc speculation of an individual.
I represent nobody,, and do not boast a
follower in the world; nor do I know
that my notions are shared by any con?
siderable portion of any part.
Thc people of thc United States feel
instinctively that they are going wrong,
but they are told that it will bc danger*
our to retrace their steps. Tiley know
that the path upon which they have
entered is beset with pitfalls; but even
a bad pass is better than the precipice.
The sweep ot reaction is stayed by :he
dread of revolution. The policy of
shrewd Democrats, and the duty of good
citizens, is to dispel this apprehension,
no matter how foolish it may seem to
them. Short of honor and good faith,
no sacrifice should be deemed severe
which would suffice to lay that haunt?
ing spectre. For that reason I deplore
thc halting, hesitating step with which
the Democracy is sneaking np to its in?
evitable position. For this cause I
share your regret at the studious
ambiguity which seems to search for
a saliyport through which to dodge its
destiny. And while I better like the
spirit, I equally condemn the polisy ot
those who only proclaimed their purpose
ol revolution. Such indications of
sentiment annoy me, simply becansc
they prolong a situation fraught with
great, danger to the dearest iotercsts of
us ali. The dominant party can retain
a pawer which has grown too great for
the public welfare only by an indefinite
exteustension of thc moral conditions
of the civil war. The Republican or
grinizition cao rally to uo cry buta
slogan and conquer under no srandard
but a spear. *Tiiu? party needs strife to
insure its succe-a but good feeling is
ncc*.- -?try for good government,
N i.v. the hostility to the fifteenth
nu;- v.'m^nt j? the stock in trade of the
ft.jyt ntcrs of strife; is it worth gratify
i ._: ..i the risk ol permaueut subjection?
"t : -. Sooth is gail* J to day nut by the
nee ?f that ..mcoduietit to the cons
titutioo, but by the utter ab-ttuco ol the
constitution ilevlf. They feel a Con?
gress which assaults theui, but they find
no on&itaiion to protect them. ls it
not silly, io squabble a?out an amend
mei;! which would cear.e to bc obnox?
ious if it was not detached fccUn its con?
It is quibbling upon a technicality of
law and relinquishing the subrtanee of
liberty. The constitution was struck
d'i\v:i by the assult opon .Sumter; and ali
constitutions must ocCcasarilfy fall be?
fore the lac? of the supreme arbitrament
ol war. lt eau never be lifted jp while
war is'flagrant. Th j people wi ii never
rc.-L-n thc attitude of hostile vigilance,
which is thc real significance of the
inscnt administration, uutil they know
that no one of their war trophies is
longer disputed. Then they will gladly
resume the habits which they love and
the good uature which they repress.
What, then, i? thc meaning of the gro?
tesque contortions ot tho.?? who profess
a fondness Lr camels and yet strain so
fantastically at this gnat'? fur the cs
fencc of all democracy is equal.ry
nothing but the equality oi all men
before the law- equal and exact yestice
to every man, and each to share in the
government of all. That is the only
genuine Democratic doctrine. But wno
dart? lacean intelligent people, with
that testimony upon his lips, amitle
nounce a measure which is too Demo?
cratic for Democrats, only because the
enfranchised are blacks? . Surely, the
Northers Demoe?af.y should not be
forced into f*&3$ stupidities by the coa
&ci< ntious " Stromes of their Southern
brethren. DrTefence is doubtless due
to their constitutional qualms, and yet
some leutty towards revolutionary pro?
'?5?*c- ut' amendment mightfte reason
y expected from ?supporter* of seces
sion. If we can condoue the fault, is it
too much to ask paroled prison ess of war
to pardon it?
.Nu ! You have givea oar ery "Uni?
versa"! amnesty ?nd universal suffrage."
I would only add. the constitutional
I'tinn of the Suica. For the old Con?
stitution ia just aa good as ever it was
fer South as well a* North, in spite of
thc marks of the mailed band which
must remain upon it fur a warning to;
those that come alter us. There is
nothing ie it now which ia not perfectly
compatible with the happiness, welfare
And liberty- of al! thc peopla of all the
States. lt Ls only the administration
that is at fault, it is ,he interpretation
which is violent. Do you imagine that'

"Our Convention of Tax payers has

that, bad as our affairs are, they are not

Mr. Editor.-What, does all of this
hair? halloo about the Intendant mean ?
Tc an outsider it would seem that a j
"Tat Payer" would make people believe j
that our Intendant had appropriated,
other people's funds to his own private
aggrandisement. Yet this looks like a
strange thing to make people believe.
It is the Treasurer who* keeps the funds,
not the Intendant-and he (the Treas? j
urer) has published a statement of all ;
the receipts and disbursements, and if
any thing was wrong, any body, much,
less the astute "Tax Payer," could easily
sho'w it from th? figures. But it is the
Intendant they are aftet, not the funds
or the Treasurer. Poor. Intendant, he
has given his services gratuituosly for j
low these many years, and DOW he is to
get no thanks, if "Tax Payer" is to have
his way. It really does not look as if j
he has ased much funds from any j
source. So far as we know, be has paid
all of his just debts and never kept any of j
his creditors or friends out of their dues ;
not even by taking the bankrupt act and
settling with them all at 15 cents in the
dollar, or by a "polite little notice"
which his of late become very familiar ]
to some of our people. And notwith?
standing he seems to do such a large]
business, and is a mao of so much
business fcaet and energy, still it seems
to take all he can make to clothe and feed
himself and little family and that barely
decently. He has made no splurge out
aa some others have. He rides in and
owns no :8ft carriages or buggies-has
neither built nor bought any fine house.
Surely if he had been using other
people's funds, he would or might have
followed suit in these evidences of]
extraordinary thrift. But wc find him
the same hard working, modest and
poor man to day that we saw him years
ago. Such a man been squandering
other people's money ? We cant believe
it-who can ?
A LOOKER OX.
WHAT'S THE ROW f
What's all this fuss about ? Somebody
is Intendant, and the town is entitled to
an Intendant, so where's the hr.rm, and
what's the racket ? is the new street
laid off in the wrong direction, or does
it carry trade wbere some folks don't
get it, or ia a lone Irishman walking the
street, with a modest bit sf a shilialy,
and behaving himself like a gintleinao,
as he is, enough to stir the bile of
Cassius and excite thc pent up wrath of
Caesar ? Cease firing, Trieuds, and in?
dulge freely in soda. The weather ia
horribly bot and the town is horribly
dull, but we dont want a fuis about,
nothing at all, at all. The Ku Klux ?
may show at Mauuieg and in upper |
Sumter, but if they bear the sound of
this battle, they may visit this place,
and soon decide "who'll be Kins" in
Sumter. So stop thc fuss at once, and
stop the press long enough to get thin
in, for the

certificate of several gentlemen as to the
fidelity of his statements, and the
dishonorable nature of the transaction,
and offered to reship the ."tock as "ut?
terly worthless," in the words of these
gentlemen, they have, as in other in?
stances, maintained silence. Various
charges of a similar character have been
tuade against them in tho Agricultural
Journals in reference to which thc
editor of the Rural Carolinian for-Oct.,
1870, says : '"For the credit of thc press
we should be glad to believe them (tho
