TWENTY-ONE GOOD REASONS FOR
BEING A DEMOCRAT.
The Washington Express coaOcases the
folltiwing twenty -tine arjrumeuts from the
letter of lion. Thomas Ewin, an octogena
rian, of Ohin, for opposing the radical par
ty at the polls. The facts stated are unan
swerable. Until recently Mr. Ewing had
made up his mind to vote for Gen. Grant;
but this he cays is impossible, and for the
reasons herein given. Let the radicals an
swer the indictment if they can. We com
mend the presentation especially to the old
whig readers of this County.
1st The republican party has now, and
has had for two years past, lull and absolute
control of the legislative and executive de
portments of the government, and they have
obstructed, and, indeed, rendered it impos
sible for the independent exercise of the ju
dicial power; and they have assumed to
themselves aud vested iu their military divi
sion commanders, freed from executive con
trol, the government of tea states.
2d The judiciary may be restored to the
exercise of its appropriate functions; for
unconstitutional laws restraining their free
action, beinjr no longer upheld by menace
and force, will be adjudged void. Tho ju
diciary will be, therefore, at once enfran
chised and restored to the exercise of its
Sd So may the executive, especially to
the command of the army, which has been
wrested from him; and which the judiciary,
when at liberty to speak, will declare to be
his right, conferred by the constitution.
4'.h The success of the democratic parly
if it succeed, will also, by restoring the in
dependence of the judiciary, put au end to
o'.hrr abuses with which we have recently
beconti too familiar namely: the trial of
private citizens, iu lime of peace, by milita
ry commissions, and tlie insolent invasion of
private rights by committees of congress.
Olh If we look to the action of congress
for the jv.ist two years, we cannot f;iil to
perceive a sulking change ia the code of
political morality by which they are govern
ed, and that generally nets are done and
means are now resorted to, to effect political
objects w'lich a few years ago would have
been condemned, and rejected as illegiti
mate and dishonorable.
Olh When the rebellion was fully and
effectively put dov:i, and there was no long
er any organized resistance to the authority
of the Union, Johnson, who was suddenly
called to the presidency, now ia oltiee, and
having about him the experienced cabinet
of Sir. Lincoln, did, as might well have
been expected, adopt his and their already
initiated policy of restoring as prompt
ly as might be, the states lately in rebellion
to their former position in the Union.
7th Congress when it met, angrily reject
ed the conciliatory measures; refused to ad
mit the senators aud representatives from
the ten states; framed, in their absence, and
while these states were wholly unrepresent
ed, a new constitutional p-ovisiou especially
to control aud bind them, aud endeavored
to compel them to adopt it by threats of se
verer penalties and proscription more sweep
ing and intolerable than it involved. Tho
president did not esteem this the proper
mode of framing or amending constitutions;
indeed, he had many supporters in his ob
jections who had witnessed and announced
as atrocious the attempt to force a constitu
tion on Kansas against the will of the people
and he opposed its adoption so far, and so
far only, as his expressed opinion could op
tilb. The secretary of war had timely of
ficial notice that a mob was assembling in
New Orleans, and a massacre was threaten
ed. There were troops enough near the
spot to preserve the peace. The officer in
command asked instructions, but the secre
tary gave none, and withheld the informa
tion from the president, untd the massacre
had taken place. A thousand public papers
united in accusing the president with know
ingly permitting, or even of abetting the
massacre. The secretary preserved a pro
found silence. Here wat one secret he did
not disclose, namely, that he, not the presi
dent, with full kuowledge of what was
threatened, stood by and suffered the mas
sacre, when tliree words from him, "Arrest
the rioters," sunt by telegraph to the com
manding offices, in reply to his dispatch ask
ing for instructions, would have averted the
mischief. The publication of the truth,
which the plainest principles of official duty
and manly honor required of him, would
have disabused the public mind and relieved
the president from a charge of crime of
high official atrocity. The secretary made
no explanatory publication, and the charge
was suffered to rest on the president.
9th Before the passage of the tenure of
civil office law no man doubted that the
president had a right to remove the secreta
ry of war. Tho amendment to that act, ac
cording to the expressed opinion of many
leading senators, acquiesed in by the whole
senate, reserved to him still that power. No
man who reads the act can doubt it so
clear was the case, that though the house
made it their first article of impeachment,
the senate passed it hy, and declined to put
it to vote. Stanton, therefore, was lawful
ly removed; he was out of office; but the
president of the senate told him to stick.
So he entered and hold it four months in
open contempt and defiance of the president
certainly with no more right there than any
6tranger who walked the street. For this
impudent and lawless act he received a vote
of thanks of the two houses of congress.
10th The two houses backed and sup
ported by the general in chief, had left him
utterly powerless, and incapable even
self-protect ion. If a robber hail entered
his mansion by night or day, he could not
hare expelled him especially if he had been
told to "stick." The general has, in full
accord with the two houses, and that he had
learned something of their new system
morals, widely different from what is taught
in military schools, is proved by his last let
ter to the president, in which he tells him
that he did not intend to surrender to him
the department pursuant to the conditions
on which ho received it, lest the president
should so use it as to defeat tlie action
the radicals in congress. In truth, he not
only surrendered to a mere trespasser, the
department, with its papers and seals; and
all the muniments of office, which the pres
ident bad confided to him, but he gave
the intruder a guard, detailed for the pur
pose, from the army of the United States,
which was kept up, day and night for
months, to protect him against a possible
attempt on the part of the president to re
11th The seizing and holding possession
of fort Sumpter against the constitutional
authority of the United States was an overt
act of treason. Is this les3 so ? Look at it.
Is it less so t The two acts were done un
der pretense of right. They were equally
illegal both committed by military force, ac
tual or menaced the fort and the depart
ment each held by an armed band against
tho lawful authority of the United State?. "
12th The president appointed one of the
officers of the department to take charge of
it pi:o tempo its. This fact was charged in
one of the articles of impeachment as a high
misdemeanor, and the republican senators
all, except seven, including those who de
clared arid voted that the president had full
power to remove, voted this attempt to take
care of the department, its seal, its corres
pondence, and its archives, during the two
days of inevitable vacancy, a high misde
meanor. It was not a trivial offence, this
attempt to tike care of the executive office,
but a high misdemeanor for which he ought
to be removed from office, and give place
to the man who had told the intra ler to
"stick. M This vote was given under the
solemnities of an oath to do impartial justice
The like is not to be found in any tribunal
anywhere, certainly not in our own or in
English history. Strafford was impeached
by the house of commons at a time when
party spirit ran highest and wildest in Eng
land, but they failed to prove him guilty of
any crime known to the laws. This being
settled, they knew conviction impossible, as
tho peers, in eutering on tlie trial, pledge
their honor that they will do no impartial
justice. The articles of impeachment were,
therefore withdrawn, and a bill of attainder
substituted, which, as it involved no oath
and no pledge of honor, was readily pars
ed. 13th The pretence of right to interfere
with the local government of the states is a
miserable sophism, resting on a fals a.
sumption. It is not true, as is assumed,
that u:iy one of these states, when interfer
ed with by congress, had not a repub'.I-jd!
form of government. The forms were va
rious, but all republican, like the constitu
tions of the original stales at the time the
adopted this guarantee and . Co;iL,rch. ,
when they interfered, under the pretense of
executing this guarantee destroyed the actu
al republican form, and imposed on tiie
states in its stead a military despotism. It
were u!le to assert the contrary that events
ars recent they occtur.d in the presence of
us all, and stand for the information of pres
ent and future ages, recorded in our annals.
14th It is strange to hear it pretended by
intelligent men in the presence of a thinking
reasoning public, that the placing of ten
stales under absolute military rule is a le
gitimate carrying out of the constitutional
provision which requires the United States
to guarantee to each slate a republican
form of government. The appeal to the
guaraute e was simply a false pretense ; the
object unmistakably was, not to secure to
these states republican forms of govern
ment, but a government in form and fact
that would secure their seventy votes lo
continue the republican party in power.
loth When the impeachment failed, the
committee of the house appointed to con
duct it was not discharged, but continued
to sit, under the guidance of Gen. Butler,
who hail been from the first its actual nomi
nal head. The continuance of the investi
gation uas founded on nothing, and tended
to nothing, except party spite and party
10th Tiie constitution declares that "no
bill of attainder or ex post facto law shall
be passed," whereupon, as if the hint were
taken from the clause, the last congress, at
their lost session, passed an ax post facto
law, attainting a class of our citizens, and
depriving them of citizenship an unworihy
class, 'tis true men who had violated their
oath to support the constitution, and with it
their oath to render military service. These
men were probably "acting outside the con
stitution;" perhaps they had been "taught
by the war." Still they deserved punish
ment, and were amenable to it under the ar
ticles of war. It was, therefore, of mere
choice, not necessity that this double injunc
tion of the constitution was violated.
17th But this abuse of power was
not suffered to remain a barren fact
it was made to bear fruit. One of
these attainted men happened to be
one of the three judges of election for
congress in one of the townships in
the Muskingum district, which gave
a large majority to the democratic
candidate. The present congress, un
der tho pretense that this law, doubly
unconstitutional, was binding, disfran
chised for thaa election all the voters
of the township, removed General
Morgan, whom the people elccted.and
appointed Mr. Delano, whom they
did not elect, in his place. The case
of J-tek Wilkes and Lutrel, though
an outrage which set all England in a
blaze, was fair play compared with
thi.s. Wilkes had been expelled from
the houso of commons, and was there
fore declared ineligible, Lutrel was
not elected: the rejection of Wilkes
was excusable, the appointment of
LiUtrel was the wrong. liut in tins
case there is no particle of excuse.
18th- Two other cases occurred near
the close of the session, not equal in
atrocity to this, for they were, as far
as disclosed, simple acts of arbitrary
power, unmixed with fraud, or false
pretense. One from Missouri, elected
by about one thousand majority, one
from Kentucky, by about one tuou
sand four hundred were removed by
a vote of the house, because they
were not acceptable to the party ; and
meii who were not elected but who
were acceptable, were appointed in
their place. A late election in Ken
tucky shows how acts like these, th
mere wantonness and insolence
unrestricted power, are estimated
19th Senator Morton is correct in
asserting that intelligent men of the
south are not fondly attached to the
adventurers whom congress has sent
at a heavy public ex tense, to rule over
them, act as spies up jn them, falsely
report them to the northern public,
and finally misrepresent thein in con
gress. A very recent example is wor
thy of note. The governor of Louisi
ana, greatly in want of a military force
to control the coming election, and
not that, at least Enfield rifles to ai
a negro militia of loyal leagues
keep suspected voters lrom the polN,
reported a condition of perfect anarchy
with more tha 1 one huudred and forty
murders in a briel space of time. This
seemad serious; the freedmen's bu
reau were ordered to inquire and re
port, and, being composed of military
officers not yet taught in the new code
of morals, they found and reported
fourteen murders in all, committed by
negroes and whites, in the time named
by the governor, being considerably
less than in thesametiine in thepeaee
ble, law-abiding state of Indiana.
20th An effoit is making to bring
congress together in order to manipu
late and control the elections in the
southern states. Those whom con
gress and the military have appointed
to represent those, states in the two
houses are alarmed at the prospect be
fore them, aud call loudly for assist
ance. They want troops and they
want arms to coerce votes, and keep
impracticable voters from the polls;
and when congress meets they will
want money, either in tho way of ap
propriations to the freedmen's bureau,
or in some other available form, to
buy votes such, if there be any, as
cannot be secured by military coercion.
If congress meets in time, their de
mand will be complied with by an un
willing majority who will lack man
hood to resist them. From this may
probably result armed collision.
21st A large proportion of north
ern men south were commissioned as
spies, and were paid, principally, out
of the puDlic purse, to slander and
villify, with the ulterior object of mis
representing1 in the two houses of con
gress. To these, your emissaries,
southern men are generally not par
tial. In their political nomenclature,
they are called "carpet-baggers" -as
chemists call, by way ot distinction,
a genus of gases cacodyle ; aud it is
not surprising that they are both in
like bad odor. But honest men, those
who visit the south upon legitimate
business, are generally not always
treated with civility and kindness ;
lor the masses of men do not always
readily take note of the distinctive
characters of men.
The Increase of the Public Debt.
November 1st, 18C7,the public debt,
or at least that portion of it which
had been adjusted.amounted in round
numbers to TWO . THOUSAND
FOUR HUNDRED AND NINETY-ONE
MILLIONS. From July
31st, 1SC4, its highest point, to No
vember 1st, 18C7, it had been steadily
reduced, but at this point, "Radical
economy" began its work, with the
following result :
In November it increased TEN
In December it increased SEVEN
In January it increased NINE
In February, March and April, by
the redemption of short gold bonds,
which had fallen due, the stated debt
was reduced, But this reduction was
In May, the figures commenced
swelling again, as follows :
Increase in May .TEN MILLIONS.
Increase, in June and Julv, THIR
Increase in August, TWELVE
According to the ratio of increase
for the past two months, in one year
tiie debt will have increased ONE
HUNDRED AND FIFTY MIL
LIONS OF DOLLARS, an amount
o.f itsell more than sufficient to have
defrayed the expenses of the Govern
ment under Democratic rule for two
years. But this is only the increase
of the debt, mark you. Besides this
amount, there was collected and spent
the enormous sum of THREE HUN
DRED AN D FORTY-SIX MILL
IONS OF DOLLARS !
Every statement above made, we
got from the official reports of the
Secretary of the Treasury and the
Chairman of tho Committee of
Ways and Means. We sent this Rad
ical souvenir forth to the laboring
men and faimers oi the Northwest,
in order that they may be persuaded
that if they desire pomp and royalty
in the government, and ceaseless lav
ish expenditure, the Radical party is
the party they should continue to sus
tain with Iheir money and their
St. Douis Times.
We are credibly informed that Jake
Ambler, iu a piece of yelping, done
at Leetonia on Tuesday night of last
week, which passed among Republi
cans for a very poor speech, said that
Tom Woods had been lying about
him in the Patriot We want Jake
to understand the Patriot has not
published anything of him half as
bad as the Republicans charged dur
ing the canvass for nomination ; that
most we published was from . the tes
timony of his own party; and any
thing we have said on our responsi
bility, tee know lo be true. Now, if
Jake Ambler wants to go round call

no objections, but when he says we
lie about him, he lies and he knows
he lies. Who said he was a drunkard?
The Republicans. Who said he was
an infidel ? Tho Republicans. ' Who
said he was profane, vulgar,low,base?

character he has till it was blacker
than his bat and nobody could see
that any was left ? Tlie Republicans.
Now, the Patriot published that
the Republicans said some of these
tilings. It said if all were true, that
it made him a fit representative of the
party. But we never paid what was
true and what was falsa of the char

with pleasure. From what we have
heard of the Leetonia yowl, we sup
pose Jake was drunk. lie had better
sober up and throw his lies into the

ROSECRANS' LETTER TO LEE.
REPLY OF THE LATTER.
The following is the Rosecrans
Lee correspondence :
ROSECRANS TO LEE.
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS,
W. VA., August, 1868.
General : Full of solicitude, for
the future of our country, I come
with my heart in my hand to learn
the condition, ; wishes and intentions
of the people of the Southern States,
and especially to ascertain the t-enti-ments
of that brave, energetic and
self sacrificing class of men, who, af
ter sustaining the Confederacy for
four years, laid down their arms and
swore allegiance to the Government
of the United States, whose trusted
and beloved leader you have been. I
see that interpreting State rights to
conflict with National unity has pro
duced a violent reaction against them,
which is drifting us toward consoli
dation; and also that so great a coun
try as ours,even now; is certain to be,
must have State Governments to at
tend. to local details, or go further and
It is plain to us at the West and
North that the continuance of semi
anarchy, such as has "existed for the
last three years in ten States of our
Union, largely increases the . danger
of centralization ; swells our National
expenditures diminishes our produc
tions and our revenue; inspires doubts
of our political and financial stabili
ty; depreciates the value of our Na
tional bonds and currency, and places
the credit of the richest below that cf
the poorest nation in Christendom.
We know that our currency must be
depreciated so long as uc bonds are
below par, and that, ; therefore, the
vast busidess and commerce of our
country must suffer the terrible evil
of a fluctuating standard . oi value
until we can remedy the evil condi
tion of things at the South. We also
seo other misch-iei quite- possible.-if
not probable, to arise; such as from a
failure of crops, a local insurrection,
and many other unlorescen contin
gencies, which may still more depre
ciate our credit and currency.provoke
discontent and disorder among our
people, and bring demagogical agita
tion, revolution, repudiation, and a
thousand unnamed evils and villain
ies on us. We know that tlie interests
of the people of the South are for law
and order, and they must share our
fate of good or evil.
I believe that every one I know
who reflects, believes that if the peo
ple of the Southern States could be at
peace, and their energy and good will
heartily applied to repair the wastes
of war, reorganizing their "business,
set the freed men peacefully, prosper
ously and contentedly at work ; invite
capital, enterprise and labor from
elsewhere, to cuiiie freely among
them, they would soon rebuild their
ruined fortunes, multiply manifold
the value of their lands, establish
public coufidenco in our political
8tability,bring our government bonds
to a premium, our currency to a gold
standard, and assure for themselves
and the whole nation a most happy
and prosperous future.
Seeing this and how all just inter
ests concur in tho work, I ask the
officers and soldiers who fought for
the Union ask every thinking man
of the great West and North why it
cannot be done? We are told by
those who have controlled the Gov
ernment for the last iour years that
the people of the South will not doit;
that if ever done at all, it must be
done by the poor, simple.uneducnted,
landless freedmcn.and the few whites
who, agaiust the public sentiment of
the intelligent white people, are wil
ling to attempt to load, and make
their living off of these ignorant, in
experienced colored people mostly
men who must le needy adventurers,
or without any of those attributes on
which reliance for good guidance for
or government can be placed. We
are told that this kind of government
must be continued at the South until
six or eight millions of intelligent,
energetic white people give into it or
move out of the country- .
Now, I think the Union army
thinks, and the people, of the North
and West, I dare say. believe there
must be, or there ought to be, a shor
ter .surer way to get good government
for all at the South. We know that
they who organized and sustained the
Southern Confederacy for four years,
against gigantic effort, ought to be
able to give peace, law.order and pro
tection to the whole people of the
South. They have the interest and
the power to employ, protect, educate
and elevate the poor freeduien and
restore themselves and our country
to all the blessings of which I have
The question wo want answered is,
"Are they willing to do it?" I came
down to find what the people of the
Soutli think of thjs, and to ask you
what the officers and soldiers who
served in the Confederate army, ami
the leading people who sanctioned it,
think of these things. I came to ask
more: 1 want to a-k you, in whoso
puiity and patriotism I here .express"
unqualified confidence, and many
other good men as you can conveni
ently consult, to eay what you think
of it, and also what you are willing
to do about it! I'want a written ex
pression of views that can be followed
by concurrence of action, 1 want
to know if you and the gentlemen
who will join you in that expression,
are willing to pledge the people of
the South to a chivalrous and mag
nanimous devotion to restoring peace
and prosperity to our common couu
try. I want to carry that pledge high
above the level of party politics, to
the' late officers' and. soldiers of the
Union army and the people of the
North and West, and to ask them to
consider it, and to take the necessary
action, confident that 'it will meet
with a ieaponse so warm, generous
and confiding, that we shall in its
sunshine behold the rainbow of peace
in our political sky, now black with
clouds and impending storm. I know
you are a representative man in rev
erence and regard for the Union, the
Constitution and the welfare of the
country, and that what you would
say would be endorsed by uine-tonths
of the. whole people- of the South;
but I should like to have tho signa
tures of all the representative South
ern iiien here who concur in your
views, and the expressions of their
concurrence from, the principal offi
cers and repreresentativemen through
out the South, when , they can be
procured. This concurrence of opin
ions and wills,, all tending to peace,
order and stability, w ill , reassure our
Union soldiers and Congressmen who
want substantial and solid peace, and
cause them to rise above the level of
party politics and take such bteps to
meet yours as. will insure a lasting
peace with all its countless blessings.
Very truly, your friend,
W. S. ROSECRANS.
To General R,. E Lee, White Sulphur
- Springs, West Virginia.
GENERAL LEE'S REPLY.
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS.
W. VA. AUGUST 26, 1868.
General: I have had the honor
to receive your letter of this date.and
in accordance with yoursuggestjons I
have conferred with a number of
gentlemen from the South, in whose
judgment I have confided, and who
are acquainted with tlie public senti
ment of their respective States. They
have kindly consented to unite with
me in replying to : your communica
tion, and their names will be found,
with my own, appended to this an
swer. With . this explanation, we
proceed to give to you, according to
statement what we believe to be the
sentiments of the Southern, people in
regard to the subject to ' which you
refer. ; ' . .
Whatever opinion' may have pre
vailed in the past witluregard to Af
rican slavery, or the right of a State
to secede from the Union, we believe
we express the almost unanimous
judgment of the Southern people
when we declare that they cousider
that these questions were decided by
the war. and that it is their intention
in good faith toaoideby that decision.
At the close of the war the Southern
people laid down their arms aud
sought to resume their former rela
tions with tlie Unitexl States Govern
ment. ' Through their State Conven
tions they abolished Slavery and an
nulled their ordinances of recession,
aud they returned to their 'personal
pursuits with a purpose to" fulfill all
their duties to the Constitution of the
United States, which they laid sworn
to support. .' If their action in these
particulars had becu met in a spirit
of frankness and cordiality, wo be
lieve that ere this ' old irritations
would have passed away, and the
wounds inflicted by the war would
have been in a great measure healed.
As far as we are advised," the people
of tlie South entertain no "unfriendly
feeling toward the Government of the
United States.but they complain that
their rights nnder the Constitution
are withheld from them iu the ad
ministration thereof. The idea that
the Southern people are hostile to the
negroes, and would oppress them if
it were in their power to do so, is en
tirely unfounded. They have grown
up In our midst, and we have been
accustomed from childhood to look
upon them with kindness. The
change in the situation of-tlie races
has wrought no change in our feelings
towai'd them. They still constitute
the important part of our laboring
population. Without their labor the
lands of the South veuld -be compar
atively unproductive; without the
employment width Southern agricul
ture attbrd.-'.they. would bedestitute of
the means of subsistence, and become
paupers, dependent on public bounty.
Self-interest, even it there were no
higher motives, would therefore
prompt the whites - of tho South to
extend to the negroes ' care and pro
tection. The important fact that the
two races are, under , existing circum
stances, necessary to each other, Is
gradually becoming apparent to both,
and we believe that, but lor influences
exerted to stir up the passiona .of the
negroes, the relations of the two races
would soon adjust themselves on a
basis of mutual kindness and advan
tage. It ia true that the people of the
South, together with the people of
the Nortit aud West, are, for. obvious
reasons, opposed to any system of laws
which would place the political power
of the country iu the hands of tho
negro race, but this opposition springs
from no feeling of enmity, but from a
deep-seated conviction that at present
the negroes have neither tho intelli
gence nor the other qualifications
which are necessary to make them
safe depositories of political power.
They would inevitably . become the
victims of demagogues, who, for sel
fish purposes, would mislaad them,
to the serious injury of tlie public.
The. great want of the South iis
peace. . Tho people earnestly desire
tranquility and the.rcstoresion of , the
Union. They deprecole disorder and
excitement as the most serious absta-
cle to liieir prosperity, .They ask a
restoration of their, l ights under,, the
Coiistiiut.io,u. Above an,. they would
appeal to tueir countrymen for the
establishment in the Southern States
of that which lias justly been.'regorded
the birth-right of every American
tlie right 'of self government. .. ., ..
Establish this on a. firm basis, and
we can salely, promise, on.. behalf of
the Southern people, that they will
faithfully obey the Constitution and
laws of the United States, treat the
negroes with kindness and humanity,
and fulfill every duty incumbent on.
peaceful citizens, loyal to the Consti.
tution of their country. ,, , ., .
We believo the above contains a
succinct reply to the-general topics
embracedjn jour letter, and, w e Ven
ture to say on behalf of the Southern
people, and of theofficers ancUeoldiexs,
of the late Confederate army, that
they will concur in all the sentiment
which we have expressed. : - .
Appreciating the patriotic motives
which have prompted your letter,and
reciprocating your expressions or kind
regards, we have the honor to be."
