Dear Sir: I have seen the letter
addrnse'l to me by you throu-h the
public prints, and I notico especially
that while animadverting upon my
suppoet of Horace Grecley you say
not one word in vindication of that
compound of pretentions known as
Grantism in contradistinction to Re.
publicanism which you would install
anew in the government. You are
greatly concerned about the company
I keep. and to quiet your solicitude,
I beg leave to say that in joining the
Republicans who brought forward an
origmnal abolitionist, I found myself
with so many ot hers devoted to "the
cause I have served that I had not
missed you until you hastened to re.
port absence; nor hadl I taken ac
count of the Southern secessionist,
who as you aver are now co-operating
with ine in supfort of this original
abolitioniet, exoept to rejoice that if
-a1n' former associates some like
yoursolf besitate, their places are sup.
plied in in unexpeeled quarter.
You entirely misunderstand me
when you introduce an incident of the
past, orid build on it an argument
why I should not support Iorace
Greeley. What has Pieston Brook,
to do with t'h3 Presidtnt.iaml election ?
Never, while a sufferer, did any one
hear trio speak of him in unkindne-s,
and now, after the lapse of more than
-half a generation, T will not unite
with you in dragging him 'from the
grave where he sleep.', to aggravate
the passivns of .politicai conflict and
nrrcst the longing fou concord ; and
here ii the essential difference be-.
tween you and mte at this jnn-ttAre.
I scizo the opportunity to iako .the
egud rights of all men through peace
and re conciliation, but this infinite
boon you wtould postpone.. Seven
years have paz.'ed since we laid aside
our arms, but unhappily, -during all
this period there has been a hostile
spiriL towards cach o'her, while the
rights of colored fellow citizens have
'been in perpetual question, Seven
years mark a natural period of
human life ; should not the ipirit be
changed with the bodys Can we not
after seven years commence a new
life, o.poeially when these once our
'foes repeat the sanlog, "Thy people
shall be my people and thy God my
God." I declare my preference for
an original abolitionist as President,
and y, u seek to create a divi.ion by
crying out that Democrats will sup'
Jirt h-i) -to which I reply eo much
the better. Their support Is the as
surance that the cause he has so cona
stantly guarded, whether of equal
rights or reconciliation, is accepted
by Democrats, and this is the judge of
a true niion beyond anything in our
history. It is a victory of ideas
without which all other victories must
fail. To intensify your allegation, you
insist that I am ranged with Jeff'erson
D~avis and Robt. Toomnbs, but pardon
mie, nobody knows bow the former
will vote, while Robert Tlonmbs Is
boistrous against [borace Grecley and
with him nre Stephens, WVise and
Mesby. This is all very poor, and
I monition it only to exhibit the chiar
actor of your attempt. In the same
spirit youi seek to avoid the real issue
by holding up the possibility of what
you call a Democratic Ad ministrn
tion, and you have the courage to
assert, as within my knowledge, that
by theO election of Ihorace G reeley,
Congress is banded over to the con
trol of thme party wvho have positively
den ied the rights of the black man.
You say that I know this. Mr.
Speaker I kowi no such thing, and
youi should be suflicietly thouimghtftul
not to assert it. I anm entirely satis
fied that a canivass like thme present,
whero the principles declared at Cin..
etunnati are opently necepted Otn one
sidle, and not contested on theo other,
must result in a larger number of
Congressiotnal Representatives sint
cerely devoted to the rights of the
colorod citizens than ever before.
The Democrats will be pledged as
never before to the ruling princlple
that all meni are eqnal before the law,
and also to thte threeo cnstitutional
amenidmtent., with the clause in eacht
empowering Congress to enforce the
same b~y approptlate legislation, lie.
sidles the l)emnocrats there will be
Liberal Republicans pledged likewise,
and also your pecutliar associates who,
I trust, will not betray thme cause.
Senators and Representatives, call
ing themselves Re publicans, have been
latterly ini a large majority in both
houses, but the final measure of civil
rights to which you refer though urg
ed by me almiost daily, has failed to
become a law, less I fear from Deo
era tio opposition than Republican
lukewarmness and the want of sup
pert in the P'resident.
T he great issue which the people are
e.,led to upon decide in November is
on the PrsMdn+, ardn.obodya. k,.m...
better than yourself that the House of
Repretentatives chosen at the same
time will naturally harmonize with
him, so it has been in our history.
Now hirmony with Horace Greeley
involves what I moet desire. With
such a President Congress will be
changed. For the flist time since the
war the equal rights of all will have a
declared representative at the head of
the government whose presence there
will be of a higher significance than
that of auy victor in war, being not
only a tebtimony but a constant mo.
Live power ini this greatenuse. Oppo
sition, Whethet- open hostility or more
subtle treachery, will yield to the
steady influence of such a represeita
tive. Therefore in looking to the
President I look also to Congress
which will take its cbaracter in a c
large measure from him. l choosiig
Horace Greeley we do the best we can
for the government, not only in the
executive but in the legislative
branch, while we decline to support
nepoti.m, paymen't of personal gifts
by official patronage, seizure of the
war powers, indignity to the black re
jublic, also the various incapacities
xhiibited by the President and the
rings by which he governs, none of
wbich can you defend. You know
hmt the Rings are already condemned
by the American people. For my.
<elf, I say plainly and without besita- 1
Lion, that I prefer Horace Greeley, v
ivith any Congress possible on the li
C'ineinnati platform, to President I
Lrant, with his pretensions and his t
Rings, a vote for whoim involves the
mupport of all his pretensions with
prolonged power in all the Rings. i
Ibere must be another influence and E
mother example. The Administra. f
ion in all its parts is imprcssed by a
he li esident. Let his soul be enlurg- a
-d with the sentimnent of justice.and h
luickened by industry, not only tihe
'wo Houses of Congress, but the
vhule country, will feel the ir esistia
de authority overspreading, pervad.
ng and permeating everywhere. r
rherefore, in proportion as you are
arnest for the rights of the colored
-itizens and place them above all par
izan triumph, )ou will be glad to
upport the candidate whose heart lims
mdways throbbed for hunmnity. '[he
ountry needs such a motive power in
lie %VWhite House ; it needs it gonter
>usfountain there. In one word, it
aeeds somebody different from the
present incum bent, and nobody knows 'j
this botter than Speaker Blaine.
The personal imputation you make
ipon me, I repel with the indignation
>f an honest man. I was a fAithfuil
mtpporter of the President until sotle
what tardily awakened by his painful
onduct in the Island of San Domingot
involving neizure of the war power in
violation of the Constitution aind in.
Iignity to the black repu'lio in viola
ioni of the international law, and
wben I remonstrated against these in.
tolerable outrages, I was set upon by N
those acting in his behalf. Such is
the origin of my cpposition. I could
lot have done less without failure, in I
.hat duty which is with le the rule of
lifeI nor can I doubt that when par
Lisan sentiments ate less active, you
will regret the wrong you have done r

The North Caroliin Electioti-Is It a
The election in North Carolina ap
pears, fortunately, to have passed off
peacefully, so far at least as is known
ip to the present time. The result
is yet in doubt, although the indica.
tions point to an incrcased conserva
tive vote over that of 1870, when the
democratio candidate for Attorney
General was elected by nearly five
thousand majority. The counties
where the heaviest negro vote is poll
ed, and ishere facilities exist for
frauds such as have been charged as
in contemplation, have not yet bee t
heard from. At the same time, some (
of the strongest conservative counties
are still wanting, and with the meagre
returns at hand it is unsafe to hazard
a prediction as to the result. it I
seelus incredible that the administr -
tion republicans can have suffer d
defeat in a State where every advao
tage has been on their side 1 whore
they have concentrated gigantic efforts I
t> ensure success; where they hav'O
held majorities every since the close
of the war, with a single exception,
varjing from nine to twenty-thred r
thousaud. Yet, as we have said,
thero appears to ha.v3 been a steady t
increase thus far in the conservatives I
majorities over the vote of 1870, and
hence it is not improbable that the
State may have declared itself in ad- I
vance in favor of the reform move
ment in Noveml e -
If thisshould prove to be the case v
it will no doubt he regarded general- <
ly as settling the Presidential con <
test. Indeed. the republicans, by the
vigor and bitterness of their cenvasq,
have signifi.d their ecnviction that a
defeat in North Carolina at this time t
would render their ultimate success (
hopeless. Senator Wilson himself i
has admitted in his speeches that the 1
election of the republican State tick- t
et was essential to the cause of Presi- I
dent 0rant ; that wititout it there q
would be little hope for the adminis- t
tration. l.jdcr these cireumstanoes, I
and in view of the fact that the whole t
machinery of the election, the entire
foderal andstate patronage, the courts, I
the military, the police and the Uni- (
ted States mar.-hals were in the u
hando of the republicans, we cannot s
think that the administration has
been overthrown. To credit such a d
calamity would be to believe that the t
Presidential election is destined to m
be a deluge, sweeping away the exist. p
ing powes and mn ah1ing a complete r
revolution in the government. Ir, I
however, the result should be as fore. n
shadowed from the general tono of t
our dispatuhes, it will be due to the
unfortunate policy of the political in a
beeles who suirround and control '
President Gaant ; due to the refusal t
of the administration republicano in i
Congress t) allow the country to re- <
turn to peace ; due to their attempt
to crush the white citizens of the

the incendiary appeals of Boutwell
