HoRaRBLE CRIME.-Jeanette Lowe, about
15 years of age, daughter of James Lowe, re
siding at Hooper, Weberneounty, went out
on the range on the 6th Inst. to hunt a cow.
She was met by two herd boys, Thomas
Purdy and Neils Peter Nielson, aged 14 and
13, who pulled her off the horse and, after a
long struggle, violated her. She threatened
to call her mother, when they pushed her in
to a deep slcugh. She Lot into deep water
and was drowned. The body was not found
till yesterday morning. Suspicion attached
to the boys, and tieing questioned apart, Pur
dy confessed the crime. Coroner Fife went
to Hooper and held an inquest, when Nielson
made a clean breast of it. They declared
they did not mean to drown her, only to
scare her. Dr. L. P. Anderson made a post
mortem examination, which demonstrated
the rape. The boys are now in the custody
of sheriff W. Brown, and are confined in the
city jail. The whole community is horrified
at the unparalelled crime.

was carrying on the business ot sterotyping

the time was employing a great many com

BALTIMORn, :July 20, 1872.
MIr Daa Si h:-Ever since the adJourn
ment of the Baltimore Convention certain
Radical Journals have persistently nlsrep
resented the course of prominent Democrats,
and have sought, in every way, to place
them in a false position before the country.
Among the number.`ou have been frequently
mentioned as being hostile to the action of
that body. aud in this way your name has
been used by political tricksters to promote
the success of the Radical cause. Without
waitinig l consultation with you, butsim
ply relrfif±, on my faith in your exalted
patiotism and unflinchbing Democracy, 1
have uphesitatingly contradicted all such ru
mors. In times last you "have done the
States somp serv.ce,'and they know it," and
on the str ngth of your past record I have
assumed that in the present politteal crisis
you wdl be quite as zealous as you ever
were before in Aetense of constitutional free
l:om aid 'civil reform. I need not ask you
it I am right in that assumption, because of
that I feel assured ; but I take the liberty of
suggesting that at thin time your views and
opiiaons upon ,the impending Presidential
contest would afford much gratification to
the Democratic and Conservative masses of
the country. Believe me to be with great
respect, ever your friend,

MY DEAR SIR-I pro.mised the gentleman
who delivered your letter that I would an
swer it fully and as soon as I could consist
ently with other engagemonts. I im tulfill
ing that promise" If I take more time and
space than might be expected, y .u will
please to remember that I and a great many
other Democrats are in a position which re
quires something miore than a mere defini
tion. We can not avoid misconstruction
without furnishing a rather lull explana
I admit that the next President must be
Grant or Greeley. The circumstances of the
polirical situa:tion limit our choice to these
two nien. as strictly as if nobody else were
egally eligible. We must %%eigh them
gainust one another, and. like practical men.
lecile the case before us in favor of the best.
Even if we lind ao good in either of them,
.e musf take that one which shall appear to
e least bad.
it is unlenia',le that the leading measures
of this administration are not only uncon
stitutional, but anti-counstittioiol, showing
not merely a contemptuous indifference to
constitutional obligations. but a settled hos
tility to those rights of the States and those
liberties of the people which the organic law
was made to secure. The President's up
pointment of offiters and his general exer
cise of public authority, under the influence
of men who paid him large sums of nt'oiey,
are scandalous outrages, and the effort to
defend them has combinod with other lil
causes to extinguish among his subordinates
all respect for those rules of morality which
used to be flcld sacred. When we consider
what these men have done in the North,'and
add to it the large handed robberies per
petrated l.n the South by the retainers of
the President, with his direct aid and as
sistance, we are compelled to. acknowledge
that no other government now in the
world is administered so entirely for per
sonal or partizan purposes, or in such com
plete disregard for the rights andl interests of
the general publ~t. I his demoralization is
not confined to the executive bianch; the
tide of corruption rolls ill upon the Legisla
ture, and in some places it has risen high
enough to touch the feet of thejudiciary.
Even the rank and file of thee President's
party have become debaucted,; let us hope
not altogether, but certainly it a: fetdtail de
gree. Acts which in former ties a.hard
ened criminal would- hesitate to; whsper i
the ear of his accomplice c*qi now be openly
advocated- by a political letder, not ontly
with safety, but with a tole.able chance of
being sustalned by a sort of public opinion.
That love or liberty and justice which used
to pervade the whl'le community now
'reneges all t.empel," and yields without re
slstance to the unprincipled demagogues who
would enthrone fraud.

And give them title, knee and approbation,

If General Grait had been equal in mind
and heart to the exigencies of the times, he
could easily have made ,himself a great pub

get that though he was with them lie was
not always of them. He refused to be a par
taker in their worst iniquities; he had none
of their diabolical hatred for lhe constitution;
he did not lend his lips to their ribald blas
phem.is, and his teet were. never swift in run
ning to shed innocent blood. Bezore t.e
great'cohflict began hit opposition to the
designs o; the aboIHt~onists agahist the Fed
endr anmd State governments impelled him to
the opposite heresy of the secession'sta. Like
the Roman faitlier who killed his daughter to
save her from a worse fate, he chose to de
stroy the o.yernment rather than see It dis
illfored and ~iolated bylatwless force. When
the war was flagmrant he provoked the ex
tremest rage of his asspcites by exerting
himself for a peace which would have left all
the people in possession of their cnstitution
al liberties. After the close of the context he
was the advocate of regular and legal as well
as honest government for all parts of the
country. I have good authority for saying
that tp never Ave his approval to any form
of kidnapping or murder by tii!itary com
mission. In shos<,' although he did "Join the

of The fir lends of religions freedgm',owiv him an
, old debt otgratitude for the zeal and ability
d with which he resisted the church burners
l when banded together in the secret lodges of

t couctry from the great danger it was onet in
of being subjugated by that infamuus organ
He has cften been aceused of complicity in
cheats of one kind or arrther, but in every
e- case he has triumphantlv refuted the charges.
For this and for other reasons I conclude
n that his personal integrity is without a stain.
Ic e has many times spoken of the Demo
cratic party and its most honored members
'in harsh and abusive terms. These are faults
of manner and of temper, which, when men
ded, are :llwavs pardoned. We will not per
mit our judgment to be disturbed by consid
erations so trifling as this. I have looked in
to his past history only to aspertain; what he
is now and what he is likely to e in the fu
ture I am hound to care nothiitg fer his
"antecedents." except as they furnish tY~ai
means of estimating his character. I thin;k
I have found out. with reasonable certainty
how far we may confide in him. I devoutly
believe that, ifclhosen President, he will
keep his oath, preserve the Constitutin
inviolate, execute the laws faithfully, restore
the States to their rightful autonomy, pro
tect individual liberty by jury trial and
habeas corpus. put the military in proper
sit.lordination to the civil authority, use
neither force nor traud to carry elections,
keep his hands clean from corrupting gifts,
set his f.ee like a flint against all nl:nmer of
financilal dishonesty, purify the a-lmiristra
lhou ofjttstice as much as in him lies., nmain
tari the public credit by a prompt dischalrgeu
of all just obligations, economize the revenlue
aind lighten t:+xation, give to capital the t
right which belongs to it. anld at the same I
time see tlat labor is not robbed of its ear
nings. Ile will certainly hold his ipower of P
appointment as iI public treat, and not aq a ',
part of his personal pn'ession to he used for a
the support of his finnily or to encourage the
priva.e liberality of his friendst. He will, so
far as lie can, without transressing tll iim
its of his legal authority, relheve the' south
ern States from t+,e gangs that are now prey
ing upon their vitals in open partnership
with the present administ rationo . s
I think he will do all this; and my fiith is
founded on the testimuny of his friends arnd
enemies, on the kn.)wn facts of his history
amd on the nioral influece . which the Dem
ocracy will necessarily exert upon his eon
duct: The errors of his I'ase life were caused
by certain evil cominirifrc.t.'os from which
he has clean escaped. lie heads a great
revolt against wickedness in l'igh places, and
r do not believe be will go back upon us and
be guilty of the same wickedness himself.
The contrast between the two candidates
being so very stri-A, no fair-minded Demo
crat cii' doubt what wht he ought to do. Yet the
reluctance which many of us fmJ to vote for
either of them is hard to overcome. I did
and do molt teartily synmhtliize with that
elass which received bME reeley's nomina
tion in much sorrow. ltm sure this feelin
proceeded toºm no uuworthy passion or prel
adge, bttt'was the raturnt result of sober
thought on the condition of the country and
the fitness of things pertaining thereto.
.n our view the controversy ?between the
parties was not all about men and niot wholly
on questions of mere administration. The
Liberal Republicans and some Democrats
think that we owe all our sufferings to the
corruption or incapacity of General Grant
and the .rings that surround him. l'ut the
