WASHINGTON, D.C., July 29, 1872.
GENTLEMEN AND FELLOW-CITIZENS: * *
I am touched by tho appeal you make. It ie
true that I am the friend of your race, and 1
am glad to be aaBured that in your opinion 1
havo hold a conaiatent courae in the Senate
and elsewhere as tho Bpocial advocate of youi
rights. That course, by tho blessing of God,
I mean to hold so long au lifo lasts. I know
your infinite wrongB, aud feel them as for ms
own. You only do mo simple juatico wbei;
you add a boliof that my counsel, at this criti?
cal juncture of your citizenship, would be free
from pereonal feelings and partisan prejndico.
In answering your inquiries, I can havo nc
feeling except for your good, which I niOBl
anxiously acck; nor can any prejudice of um
kind bo allowed to interfere. The occaaion it
too aolemn. Especially is thero no room foi
personal fooling or for partiaan prejudico
No man or party can expect power except foi
the general welfare; therefore, they muat bi
brought to the etandard of truth, that tho}
may bo soon in lifo and act. You are right ii
saying that tho dioico for tho Presidency ii
now uarrowod down to Preuidcnt Grant oi
Horaco Greeley. Ono of thcao ia to be taken
and, aeauming my acquaintance with both
and my observation of their lives, you in vit*
my judgment between them, asking mo eape
cially which of tho two, judging from theil
antecedents, aa well as preaent position
would enforco the Conatitution and lawa, BC
curing your civil and political righte, with th?
moat heartfelt aympathy and tho greatea
vigor. Hero I remark that, in this inquiry
you naturally put yonr rights in the foro
ground. So do I-believing moat sincerely
that the boet interests of the whole country
are associated with the completest recognitioi
of your rights,so thattho two races shall liv<
together in unbroken harmony. I also re
mark that yon call attention to two things
the "antecedents" of the two candidates; am
secondly, thiir "present posit ion." You wisl
to know from theBe which gives assurance o
the moat heartfelt sympathy and greatea
vigor in tho maintenance of jour rights; ii
other words, which, judging by tho paat, wil
bpyour truest frienu.
Tho communication with which you hav
honored me is not alone. Colored fcllow-citi
zens in other parts of the oountry, I may ea.
in nearly every State of the Union, have mad
a similar request, and some complain that
have thus far kept silent. lam notinsensibl
to this appeal. But if my opinion is given, i
must be candidly, acoording to my conscience
In this spirit I answer your inquiries; begin
ning with the antecedents of the candidates.
1. Horace Greeley waa born to poverty am
educated himself in a printing office. Presi
dent Grant, fortunate in early patronage, be
came a cadet at West Point, and was educat
ed at the public expense. One started witl
nothing but industry and character; tb
other started with a military commission
One was trained as a civilian; the other ae
soldier. Horace Greeley stood forth as a re
former and Abolitionist. President Grant en
listed as a pro-slavery Democrat, and, at th
election of James Buchanan, fortified by hi
vote all the pretensions of slavery, includin
the Dred Scott" decision. Horace Groelo
from early life was earnest and constan
against slavery, full of sympathy with th
colored race, and always foremost in th
great battlo for their rights. Presiden
Grant, oxcept as a soldier, summoned by th
terrible accident of war, ncvor did anythin
against slavery, nor has ho at any tim
shown any apmpathy with the colored race
Horace Greeley earnestly desired that colore
citizens should vote and ably championed in
partial suffrage: but President Grant was o
theotberside. Beyond thcao contrasts, whic
aro marked, it cannot be forgotten that llorac
Greeley is a person of largo heart and larg
understanding, trained to tho support c
human rights, always beneficent with th
poor, always ready for any good cause, an
never deterred by opposition or reproach, a
when for loDg years ho befriended your pee
plo. Add to these qualities, conapicuoua i
his life, untiring industry, which leaves n
moment without its fruit-abundanlpolitioi
knowledge-acquaintance with history-th
instinct and grasp of statesmanship-a
amiable nature-a magnanimous soul, ant
abovo nil, an honesty which no suspicion ha
touched, and you have a brief portraitur
of what are the antecedents of Horace Grce
loy. Fow of thoso things appear in tho Pre
aident. His groat success in war. and th
honors ho has won, cannotfehango tho recur
of his conduct toward your people, feapociull
in contrast with tho Ufe-timo fidelity of hi
competitor, while thero aro unhappy "anti
codenta" showing that in tho prosecution c
his plans he cares nothing for tho coluro
race. The story is painful,but it must bo told
I refer to tho outrage he perpetrated upoi
Hayti, with its 800,000 blacks, engaged ii
the great experiment ot self-government
Hero is a most instructive "antecedent," re
vealing boyond question his true nature, an.
tho whole is attested by documentary evi
deuce. Conceiving thc idea of annexing Do
minie?, which ls the Spaniah part el tin
island, and shrinking at nothing, he begai
by seizing the war powers of the Govern
mont, in flagrant violation ot the Conatitu
tion, and thou, at great expenditure o
money, Bent several armed ships of the navy
including monitors, to maintain the usurpe
Baez in powor, that through him he migh
obtain tho coveted prize. Not content will
this audacious dictatorship, he proceeded t
strike at tho independence of tho blaok re
public by open monaco of war, and all with
out the sanction of Congress, to which i
committed tho war>inakiug power. Bailiu
into tho harbor of Port-au-Prince with ou
moat powerful monitor, tho Dictator, proper
ly named for thiB service, also tho frigate Sc
voru as consort and other monitors in t hoi
train, the Admiral, acting under instruction
from Washington, proceoded to tho executiv
mansion, accompanied by ofllcors of hi
equadron, and then, pointing to tho grea
war ships in sight (rom the windows, deal
his menace of war, threatening to sink o
capturo liaytion tsbipe. Tho President wa
black, not whito. Tho Admiral would hav
dono no such thing to any whito ruler, no
would our country havo tolerated such mt
naco from any Government in tho work
Hore wa? indiguity not only to tho black rc
public, with ita population of 800,000, but t
tho African race everywhere, and especial!
in our own couutry. Nor did it end her?
For months tho navy of tho United State
was hovering on tho coast, keeping that ir
suited people in constant anxiuty, while Pn
sident (.?rant was to thom liko a hawk sailin
in tho air, and ready to swoop upon his pre}
This heartless, cruol proceoding found a vii
tim among our whito fellow-citizens. Au ci
collent merchant of Connecticut, praiaoa h
all who know him, was plunged into priso
by Bae-z, where ho was immured because :
wan feared ho would writo against thc treat
of annexion, and this captivity was prolonge
with the counivanco of two agents of tho Pn
sident, ono of whom finds constant favc
with him, and is part of tho military ring in
mediately about him. That such an outrap
could go unpunished shows tho little regar
of tho President for human rights, whetht
in whito or black.
I confess my trials, as I was called to wi
noes theso things. Always a supporter of tl)
Administration, and sincerely desiring t
labor with it, I had never uttered a word wit
regard to it except in kindness. My carly o]
position to tho treaty of annexation was r<
served, so that for aomo timo my opinioi
wero unknown, lt was only when I saw tl
breach of all law, human and divine, that
was aroused, and then began tho angerof tl
President and of his ringo, military and ecm
torial. Devoted to tho African raco, I felt f<
them, besides being humbled that tho grei
republic, acting through its President, cou!
set such an example, whero tho Nation
Constitution, international law and humauil
were all sacrificed. Especially was I move
, when I saw tho indignity to the colored rai
I which waa accomplished by trampling upon
fundamental principle of international lai
c'eclariug thc equality of nations, as our D
claration of Independence declares the equu
ity of men. This terriblo transaction, wbic
nobody can defend, is among tho "antee
dents" of President Grant, from which yr
i can judgo how much tho colored race can re
. upon his "heartfelt sympathies." Nor can
'? be forgotten, that ehortly afterward, on tl
i return of tho commission from thia islam
' Hon. Frederick Douglass, tho colored oralo
i accomplished in manners as in eloquence, wi
' thrust away from tho company of tho con
' missioners ut the common tablo of tho mu
i packet on the Potomac, almost within sight <
? tho Executive Mansion, aimply on account i
? his color; but tho President, at whose invit:
i tion ho had joined tho commission, never u
> tered a word in condemnation of this exalt
i sion, and when entertaining tho returnc
' commisBiont-rs at dinner, carefully umittc
i Slr. Douglass, who was in Washington ut tl
" time, and thus repeated the indignity. Otb?
. things might bo mentioned showing tho syn
' patines of tho President, but I cannot forgi
? tho civil rights bill, which* is the cap-stone- i
f tnat equality bofore the law to which all ai
i entitled, without distinction of color. Pre."
i dont Grant, who cculd lobby so assiduous
f for his St. Domingo scheme, full of wrong I
; tho colored race, could do nothing for th
. beneficent moasurc. During a long set-sit
) of Congress, it was discussed constantly, an
. tho colored peoplo everywhere hung upon tl
f debate, but ibero was no word of "ln-artfe
i synipathy"tfrom tho President. Atlast, just h
- foro tho nominatiug convention, ho uddreest
3 a letter to a meeting of colored tollow-citizei
t in Washington, called to advanco this cans
, whero ho avoided tho question, by dcclarin
- himself in favor of "tho exercise of thoi
T rights to which overy citizen should bo just
t entitled," lcavingit uncertain whether colore
i peoplo aro justly entitled to tho rights s
3 cured by tho pending bill. I understand thi
- Iloraco Greeley has already been assailed L
, an impracticable Democrat as friendly to th
1 bill, but nobody has lisped against Presidei
i Grant on this account.
f Among "antecedents," I deem it my dui
t to mention the little capacity or induit' v t
i 'the President in protecting colo, ed p- .?pl
1 and in assuring poaco at tho Soutn. Nomnl
can doubt that a small portionof the efloi
B aud earnest will, eveu withoutw< lobbyin
- so freely given to tho San DomTB^fc^chenn
J would have averted those Eu Klu\oatrag(
0 which wo deploro, so that thoro would hav

t raoter and tho drawback of his own conduo
After violating the Constitution and intern)
. tional law to insult the black republic, an

II. Passing from "antecedents," I com
- now to the "present position" of the two cai
- didates, which ia the subject of your next ii
ii quiry. If in any former particulars tho tn
o are on an equality, yet in all substantial r<
. speote the obvious advantage ie with Horse
a Greeley. Each waa nominated by a Bopubl
- can convention, one at Cincinnati and tb
i* other at Philadelphia, so that in thia reepec
e they may seem to bo on an equality. But :
s will not fail to be observed that the couvei
g tion at Cincinnati was composed of ablo au
y acknowledged ttepublicans, many of whoi
t have acted with tho party from its first foi
o mation, who, without previous organizatioi
o came together voluntarily for the sako of rt
d form and purity in tho Government; while, o
e tho other hand, thc convention at Philade
g phia was composed of delegates chose
o largely under tho influence of stockholder!
>. who assembled to sustain what is known a
d Grantiem, being the personal govi-rnmet
i- and personal pretensions of Gram, iuvolvin
n nepotism, repayment of gifts by official pa
h tronage, neglect of pnblic duty, abaentecisn
o military mle, disregard of constitution an
e law, with general unlit nen? and indignity t
>f the colored race-all of which is so uurepul
e Hean as to mako its support impossible tu
d truo Republicans. Therefore, tho convoi
B tion at Philadelphia, though calling ilse
>. Republican, was less Republican in realit
n than that at Cincinnati. The two pbttformi
o so far as concerns especially tho colored mei
d aro alike in subs tance, but that of Ciue-innai
e is expressed in terms most worthy of th
p equal rights it states and claims: "Wo recojj
I, nize tho equality of all men beloro tho lav
B and hold that it is tho duly of Government i
o its dealings with the people to mote out equi
>- and exact justice to all, of whatever nativity
>- race, color or persuasion, religious or polit
o cal." In other respects, tho platform or Cii
d cinnatiisthe moat Republican, inasmuch a
J iteetsitsolfagainetthoHounrepublican abuse
a which havo boen nursed by" tho Presiden
i- into pernicious activity.
il From tho two nominations and two plat
a forraB I como to tho supporters of tho candi
I. dates, aud hero I look, first, at those i m med
ii ately about them, and, secondly, at tho pepn
ii lar "support behind. Horace Greeley ba
a among his immcdiato supporters, in all part
>. of tho country, devoted and consistent Rc
d publicans, always earnest for reform and pu
- rity in Government, on whose lives there is n
- shadow of suspicion-being a contrast i;
character to those rings which play such a
part in the present Administration. Tho
country knows too well tbo military ring, the
senatorial ring, and the custom house ring,
through which the President acts. Such eup
Eor tors aro a very poor recommendation,
oohing at the popular support behind, the
advantage is still with Horace Greeley. Pre?
sident Grant has at his back tho divonsitiod
army of office-holders, drilled to oboy the
word of command. The speeches praising
him are by ofllce-holders and member* of
rings. Horace Greeley finds Hocking to his
support largo numbers of Republicana unwill?
ing to continue tho existing misrule, and au
allies with them a regenerated party which
comes forward to unite in this Liberal move?
ment. Democrats, in joining Horace Greeley,
havo changed rumply as President Grant
changed when ho joiued tho Republicans, ex?
cept that ho was rewarded at onco with high
ofiico. Tho change is open. Adopting the
Renubliean platform, which places tho equnl
rights of all under thu safeguard of irreversi?
ble guarantees, and at tlif same time accept?
ing thu nomination of alife-timo Abolitionist,
who represents pre-emiuently tho suntimcut
ot duty to the colored race, they have act their
corporate seal to the sacred covenant. They
may continue Democrats in name, but they
aro in reality Republicans, by thu tame title
that thoao who auatain Republican principles
aro Republicans, or rather they aro Demo?
crats, according to tho original sitrnification
ot that word, dodicatcd to tho rights of tho
people, lt ie idlo to fay that Horace Greeley
I and tho Republicana that nominated him are
any lesa Republicau because Democrats unite
with them in Buppoi t of cherished principles
and tho candidate who represent s them. Con?
version:! ure always welcome, ami not less BO
because tho chango is iu a multitude rather
than un individual. A political party cannot,
it it would, and should nut, if it could, shut
the door againat converts, whether couutcd
hythe score, tho hundred or tho thousand;
and eo we find that tho aupportcra of Presi?
dent Grant announce with partisan triumph
tho adhesion ot a single Democratic politician
or a single Democratic newspaper. Un equal
reason, and with higher pride, may the sup?
porters of Horace Greeley announce tho ad?
hesion of tho Democratic'party, which, turn?
ing from the things that are behind, presses
on to those that are bctoro.
It is also idlo to say that tho election of
noraco Grceloy aa President, with Gratz
Drown aa Vice-president, both unchangeable
Republicans, will bo thc return of tho Demo?
cratic party to power. On tho contrary, it
will ho tho inauguration of Republican prin?
ciples. under the safeguard of a Republican
President and Republican Vice-president,
with Democrats aa avowed aupportcra. In
thc organization of bia administration and
in the conduct of affaire, Horace Greeley will
naturally lean upon thoso who reprceent beat
tho great promisee made of equal rights and
reconciliation at Cincinnati. If Democrats
aro taken, it will bo aa Republicaus iu heart,
recognizing thc aaeociate terms of thc settle?
ment a? au irreversible Quality. Tho hardi?
hood of political falsehood reaches it? ex?
treme point, when it is asserted that under
Horace Greeley thc freedmen will be rc-en
elavcd, or that colored pooplo will in any way
suffer in their equal rights. On thc contrary,
they have in bia election not only tho pro
mises of tho platform, but also thu splendid
examplo for a full generation, during which
ho has never wavered in tho assertion of theil
rights. To suppose that Horace Greeley,
when placed where be can do them tho moat
good, will depart from the rule of his honest
life, ia au insult to reason. Therefore. I put
' aside tho partisan allegations that Horace
Greeley hus gone to the Democrats, or that
ho will be controlled by Democrats. Each ?t
without foundation or reason, accordiug ti
my judgment. They aro attempts to avoid
what you recognize a? tho true issue, heine,
tho question between the two candidates, or,
perhaps, they may bo considered aa scare
' crows, to deter the timid. Nobody who vote-i
for Horace Greeley will go to tho Democrats
nor do I bclicvo that when elected Horace
Greeley will be under any inllueuco except
1 thatenlightened conscience which will kee|
" him ever truo to the principies ho represents
' It ia none tho lesa idle to suppose that Demo
1 crate supporting Horace Greeley expect 01
1 dut-irn that ho should depart from thoso priu
1 ciplea which are tho glory of his character
1 They have accepted the Ciucinuatl plutforn
1 with ita two-Told promises, and intend ii
? good faith to maintain it. Democrats cannot
. turn back who, at tho Convention adopting
I this platform, sang Greeley songs to the tune
1 ot "Old John Brown, bia aoul ia marching
i on." Bocking especially the establishment
. of character in thc National Government
. they will expect their President to be always
' true to himself.
I Gentlemen, in thuB answering your two in
? quiries, I havo shown why you, as coloree:
'? tcllow-citizous,and also all who would uphoh:
: your righta and Bavo the colored race iron
1 indignity, should refuse to sanction the re

in Horace Greeley. I ought to add that witt
' him will ho aosociateel aa Vicc-Preaidenl
r Gratz Brown, whom I have known for years at
-' a moat determined Abolitionist. Tho two to
' gotherwill carry into the National Goveru

' not to be disturbed by partisan dictation oi
. sectional prejudice. Besides all thia, wbicl
I may fitly guide you in determining betwocr

r you that, aa citizona of the United States, ant
fiart of the country, your welfaro is indiaao
utily associated with that of tho whole conn

1 gainers. Therefore, while juatly careful oi
J your own righta, you cannot be indifferent te
. the blessings of good government. It ia foi

J dent Grant deserved impeachment for liigl
> cri ai ea and misdemeanors, rather thin a re
. nomination, and on tho trial it would havi
r been enough to exhibit his se izure of tho wai
- power and his in dig'ni ty to tho black republic
? with its population of '8U0.??0, in violation ol
y tho NationalCoiiatitution and of international
. law. Anil hero a contrast arises between him
i and Abraham Lincoln. Tho latter, in his tirai
> annual message, recommended the recogni
D tion of what be called the "independence and
- sovereignty of H ay ti," but it is at these thal
i President Grant has struck. Ono of Abra
1 ham Lincoln's first acta waa to put tho black
1 republic on an equality with tho other
i powers; one ol I'rei-ldent Grant's was te? de
- grade it.
I am so much ol a Republican that I wUh
a to soo in tho Presidential chair a life-time
? Abolitionist. I also wish a President sincerely
t devoted to civil Berrico reform, beginning
with i ho "one-term principle," w hich Presi
. dent Grant onco accepted, but now disowns.
. I also wish a President who selb thc example
- of industry and unselfish dedication to the
- public good. And I wish to soc a President
a through whom wo may expect peace and har
a ninny, instead of discord. Strangely, Pivsi
- dent Grant seems to delight in strife. If he
- linds no enemy, he (all* upon his friends, as
0 ?hen ho struck at the black republic,insulted
a ! Russia in his annual message, offended both
"rauco and Germany, and then, in persona
elations, quarreled generally. My own per
ona) experience teaches how futile ie th<
hargo, that bocanse Horaco Greeley receiyei
)emocratio votes, therefore he becomes i
)emocrat, or lapses under Democratic con
roi. I was first chosen tn tho Ronato by 1
oulltiou of Free Sobers and Democrats. De
uocratio votos helpod niako me Sonator fron
ilassachusettB, as they also helped make rn;
scellent friend. Mr. Chime, Sonator fron
)hio, and will help mako Horaco Greeley Fro
lident. But neither Mr. Ghaso nor mysel
vas on this account lesa faithful as Frei
soi lt rs, and, answering tor myself, I know tba
I never became a Democrat or lapsed undo
democratic control. I do not doubt that Ho
?ace Greeley will be equally consistent. Th
?barge to tho contrary, so vehemently repeat
;d, seems to reflect tho oharaotor of thosi
vho mako it, except that they may repeat i
>y rotc. There is a common Baying, "l'rmci
iles, not men," and on this ground an appea
s made for President Grant, feeling j net);
.hat, in any personal comparison with Llorac
jreelcy, ho must fail. But a better saying ie
'Principles and men." I am for tho priuci
[dos of the Republican party in contradicho]
LO Qrantiem. ana I am for the man who trul;
represents thom. By theso principios I shai
stand, for them I Bb all labor, and in their tri
timph I shall always rejoice. If any valuei
friend separates from me now, it will bo bo
cause ho placea a man abtrce principle?. Earl
in public lifo, I declared my little heed tb
party, and n-y indifference to tho namo b;
which I am called; and now I confess m
want of sympathy with those who tvuultl clin
tu the form utter its spirit has lied.
Allow mo to call attention to another an
controlling consideration, which canupt b
neglected by tho good citizen. Watching th
remarkable movement, that has endod in tb
double uominatio.i of Horace Greeley, it i
easy to see that it did not proceed from pol
tieiuns, whether at Ciueinua'i or Unit inion
Evidently it was tho heart of tho peoplo, sore
ly wrung by war and tho controversies it ei
gendored, which found this expression. Si
Phillp Sidney said of tho uprising in tho Nt
t bel lands, "It is tho epirit of tho Lord, and i
irresistible," and such a spirit is m am fe i
now. Notwithstanding tho countcractin
influence of politicians-Republican and Di
mocratic-in the faco of persistent ridicule
and against tho extravagance of unecrupuioi
opposition-the nomination at Cincinnati wt
triumphantly adopted at baltimore. Such a
unpiecedented victory, without concert <
Erepulsion of any lund, can be explainedoni
y supposing that it is in harmony with a pi
pular longing. That Democrats, und esp
emily thoso of tho South, should adopt a hf
timo Abolitionist for President ie an assurant
of willingness to aasociato the rights of the
colored fellow-citizens with that r?concili?t it,
of which Horaco Greeley was an early reprt
sentativo. In standing by Jefferson Davis I
bia trial, and signing his bail-bund, ho Bhowe
tim samo sentiment of humanity ho so cot
stantly displayed in standing by the colore
race throughout their prolonged trial, eo thi
the two discordant races find kindred hosp
tality in him, sud he thus becomes a tio i
Tho nomination has been adopted by tl
Democrats, iu convention assembled. Th
was au event which tho supporters of PreH
dent Grant declared impossible I do not Et
bow it can bo regarded otherwise than as
peace-offering. As euch, it is of infinil
value. It is a revolution, and its suecas i
pacifying the country will be in proportion I
its acceptance by us. I dare not neglect tl
?rt at opportunity, nor can I stand aloof,
is in harmony with my life, which plac?
pcacu above all things except tho rights i
mau. Thus far, in constant efforts for tl
colored race, I havo sincerely sought tl
good of all, which I was suro would bo be
obtained in fulfilling tho promises of tho D
?duration of Independence, making all cqu
in rights. Tho Bpirit in which I acted appeal
in an early speech, whero I said: "Nothing i
l?ate: nothing in vengeance" Never havo
asked for puniehme-ut. Most anxiously bal
I looked for the time, which eoemB now ?
hand, when Ibero should bo r?concili?t?,
not only between the North and South, bi
between the two races, so that tho two ec
tiona and the two races may bo lifted froi
the ruts and grooves in which they ara no
fastened, and instoad ot irritating antagonise
without end, thero shall be sympathetic a
Tho existing differences ought to bo ondei
Thero ia a time for all things, and we are ai
mouished, by a wide-spread, popular upri
big, bursting tho bonds of party, that tl
time has como for estrangement to cease b
tween people who, by tho ordinance of Got
must livo together. Gladly do I welcomo tl
happy Bigne; nor eau I observe, without r
grot, tho colored peoplo, in organized masse
resistiug the-friendly overtures, even to tl
extent of intimidating thoso who aretheothi
way. It is for them to consider careful
whether thoy should not tako advantagei
tho unexpected opening and recognize tl
bail-bond given at Baltimore as the assurant
of poacc, holding tho parties to tho full pe
foi manco of its conditions. Providod alwa]
that their rights are fixed, I am eure it canni
bo best for the colored people to band togethi
in a hostile camp* provoking antagonism an
keeping alive tho separation of races, aboi
all there must be no intimidation, but evei
voter must act freely, without constraint froi
leaguo or lodgo. Much better will it be whe
tho two political parties compete for yoi
votes, each anxious for your support. Uni
then will that citizenship, by which you ai
ontitled to the equal rights of all, have its ni
tural fruits. Only then will there be thi
harmony which is essential to a true civilizi
tion. The present position of tho colore
citizon is perdone. He ia exposed to injuriot
pressure when he needs support. But I st
no carly extrication except in the way pn
posed. Lot him out adrift from managei
who would wield him merely aa a politic,
force, with little regard to his own good, au
bravoly stand by tho candidato who has etoo
by him. If Dem?crata unite with him, f
much the better. The association once bogt
must naturally ripen in common friendslii
f am for peace in reality SB in name. Fro:
tho bottom of my heart I am for poace, and
welcomo all that makes for peace. Wit
deep-felt satisfaction, I remember that u
citizen who drew his sword against us bi
suffered by tho hand of the executioner. I
just association with thia humanity will I
tho triumph of equal right? when tho pr?
mine? of tue great declaration are allfulfillei
and our peoplo aro united, aa novar before, i
the enduring fellowship of a common cltizci
ship. To this end, thero must bo reconcilii
tion, nor can I withhold my hand. Freely
accept tho hand that is offered, and rcac
forth my own in frioudly grasp. I am againf
tho policy of hate; 1 am against fanning at
cicnt flames into continued life; I am agaim
raking in the ashes of the past for coals <
bro yet burning. Pilo up tho ashes; oxtir
guish tho llamen; abolish tho hate; such is m
dosiro. And now, turning to tho Democrat]
party. I hold it to all tko covenants solemn!
given in tho adoption of a Republican pial
form, with Horace Greeley as candidat!
Thero can bo no backward step.
With no common sympathy I have observe
that Mr. Hendricks, a leading Dcmocra
whom I knew and esteemed in the Senah
has recently announced his accsptanco of th
constitutional amendments, with their log
cal results. Ile proposes, asa proper ke-,
noto to tho extraordinary movement no'
swelling to a euro triumph, "Just Laws an
Publie Virtue." This is a worthy aspiratiot
entirely fit on this occasion. My key-noto ii
.'The unity of thc Republic, and the Equi
[tights ol All, with Reconciliation." Such i
my cry, and wherever my voice can read
th? re tb) I Insist upon all these, hnmb-yinvol

I believe, must descend upon such a causo.
