THE UNDYING DKMOUHAU1
AND MONTtiOJIKHY ULAIU.
The democracy of New York city,
rcproscnlcd by, 'tho Manhattan club,
had a reunion on thoscvcntluust. Tho
mooting was in-glorification over tho
recent "democratic victories, with all
their glorious promises for tho future."
Many gentlemen of distinction were
invited to be present and tho invita
tiona worn idci1 by audi oral shining
lights of tho democratic party as
August Helmont, Samuel J. Tilden
and Augustus Bchell. Ono was sent
to tho Hon. MoUtgomcry Blair, wo pub
lish the response below. It is
worthy the pen of a Western
granger , of a man who fully
understands that the cutlemcu of
the Manhattan club fc'ive n Bourbonic
misapprociation of the lato uprising
against cxisth. political conditions;
that ono of tfic monopolies which tho
democratic in the best sense of that
word widc-awako voter of to-day has
determined to put his hcul upon and
crush, is the monopoly which wealth,
in the pcrsoa of such men aS August
Belmont, has luug exercised in the se
lection and election of candidates for
office ; that tho forco which is to op
pose and break down tho corruption,
the greed of wealth and power now
feeding off the very vitals of the gov
ernment, is not to be found. within the
limits of any existing political organi
zation ; that this is the province of the
now party,toward which statesmen like
Carl Schurz, no less than tho grang
ers and tho anti-monopolists, are tend
ing; the party which tho events of
each succeeding day form into n more
perfect whole, nnd which, when the
time is ripe, will rice in its might, the
conquering political organization of tho
Messrs. John Urudy, August Belmont,
Samuel J. Tilden, and others, com
mittee of Manhattan club:
Gentij:mkn: I tliank you tor vour
invitation to tho democratic reunion at
the Manhattan club bouse, on tho '27th
inst., nnd regret that I cannot be with
you. I rejoice with you in tho upris
ing oi tue people, mauilcstcu in tlio re
cent election ngainBt tho gross abuse
of their confidence by tho prcsont ad
ministration, and earnestly hone that
such counsols may prevail among its
opponent,') as that tlio centennial year
may witness a vindication of tho prin
ciples of 1770, in the restoration of
rcspousiblo government. This is really
the truo issuo, and tho motto of all
friends of popular govornm'ent should
bo that of Bcuton "Union, harmony,
compromise, concession, everything for
tho cauco, nothing for men." Tho
issue is not and will not bo between re
sumption and inflation, protection and
frco tradc; civil service reform, free
Cuba, otc. and our friends must not
bo deceived by the present divisions
auu controversies amoui: our onno-
no tits on theso and other questions,
The money power which holds tho
party organization will quickly silenco
all such divisions, when tho timo comes
a it has done heretofore.

staked On holdiflg.thc government by
the use or money, which they obtained
by appropriating publio and private

Icy our candidate. By that movement
wo were able in some degree to force an
issue on thcX'redit Mobilier and other
frauds, and created a publio sentiment
which prevented congress, from voting
indemnity" ouol tho ".public purse to
tho brokors who elect them. And wo
have only to 'continue to force
on the issuo asainst class-eovcrnment.
to be sustained by a corrupt use of
J C3 t
public money to overthrow t and ro
dc;m our countrv from corruption
winch is ccxraumL' it in tho eyesot the
whole world. The Pceplo Of the Uni
ted States will not bo eoverncc by any
other class. They broke up the old
Bank of the Unitod States because its
managers abandoned their business to
take on themselves the government of
tho country ; and slavery would have
continued many a long yoar if it had
not been brought into politics and used
to consolidate sixteen states in tho elec
tions. Tho great monopolies that have
now stepped into tho shoes of slavery
as tho governing power will come next.
And when we see tho supremo court
packed at the dictation of ono of these
great corporations to have the legal
tender decisions revoked and suspen
sion thus perpetrated in order to re
licve it of its pecuniary obligations,and
this by a president who is so strenuous
for resumption, uo ono can fall to sco
in whoso hands all real power over tho
government is lodged, and whence all
tho corruption comes that is eating out
the heart of our frco institutions. The
first thing to bo dotio therefore is to
il. f . r .
rescue mis government irom irrespon
sible power. For this we want a peo
ple's party, .in which resumptionista
and inflationists, protectionists and frco
traders, republican and democrats,
black pecplo and white in n word, all
sinccro believers in popular govern'
nient may join to reclaim this gov
eminent for the poople.
A party so organized would givo us
an honest and economical administrn
tion under whoso bcuign influences, in
dustrial interests would rovive, and tho
dissensions oi race nnd sections disap
pear. I am, very truly yours.
