Gen. Chalmers, one of the Confederate
leaders, a xciitlciuau who. before the late
War, was one of the tire-caters of the
South, lias been brought to u renll.luif
cnse of the fact, that foinethlng has hap
pened In this country. In a late speech,
at Friar's Point, Mississippi, he -aid that
the Democracy of to-day Is not the le
mocracy of the past any more than the
lahlon of to-day are the lahlou of the
past. "The Whig parly," said he elo
quently, "sleeps In the graves of Web
ster and Clay, and the Sece-slon Democ
racy lies buried hi the tomb of Calhoun
ami under the little hillocks which mark
the lat resting places of the Confederate
dead."
Gen. Chalmers was one of 1 1 1 gentle
men who followed in the footsteps of
Calhoun, the great perverterofthe Dem
ocratic party, and he now asserts that
the perverted Democracy he advocated
was true Democracy that has passed
away as iasilou In elothluir pas awav.
Till not true. The. Democratic party
of to-day Is growing Into a iceuiblaiicc
of the Democratic party of the past, he
lore Calhounlsin tainted It with the doe
trine of iiiiiliIlo.it U)ii and taught it to be
lieve that Sccessioni'in was patrloti-m.
The wi-e principles of government Incor
porated into the tirst Inaugural addruss
of 1'resldent Thomas .letleisou might to
day be taken, word for word, as a decla
ration of Democratic, doctrine, and would
have lieeu the ark nfsalety of I hat party
in the pa-t, had it not been Induced by
the Callioiins, Yancey and Tooinbes to
embark Its lortune with slavery In Se
cession. Hut all Is not lost. Tho-e or the party
who have survived the storm have re
turned from following after false politi
cal god, and again arc gathering about
the altars erected by the fathers of the
Democratic party arc again putting on
the polltIc.il clothes of thu old and purer
days ol the l.'epnblle.
FRANK BLAIR'S RECORD.
A Ilrolher'N Vlmlirnllou.
b lectal I )itpatcli to tlie Clif ray o Ti I Inine.
Wasuixino.v. D. 0'.. Mav a:i Mnnt.
gomery lllalr lias written a letter vindi
cating his brother, (Jen. Frank 1 lllalr,
who, owlii'- to Ills Illness. Is itnaliln to
answer the aspen-Ions cast upon Ids mili
tary reeonl ilurlii'r the late war bv the
Memoirs" ot Oeii. .Sherman. .Mont-
tfomery lllalr be"ln, with (.'en. lllalr'
eilbrts in Missouri, and recites in the
fact that for his patriotic and courage
ous conduct In nrotecthi'f the St, Louis
Arsenal he received the oiler from I'n-I.
dent Lincoln of the position of IJrlgadler-
uenerai in mu lvuiar armv. tlie llr.-t
recognition made for jrallaut ser
vice at the be"lnnlnj' of the rebellion.
He asserts that Gen. Sherman ret used to
Identity himself with the army until lie
was utaile a Colonel In the n-'iilar army,
alleging that he had no eoulldeuco In a
rvinifn-r tbrtc or the commanders of
volunteers. Tlie principal point in fiialr'n
letter is that In every Instance the oppo
sition force against (?en. Sherman suc
ceeded In escaping; that he was stam
peded In Kentucky with a force of 75,00(1
men, while the ltehel had only 25,10(1 ;
that Sherman's entire military reeonl
during tho War, until he came under the
command of (Jen. Grant, was character
ized bv timidity ; that Sherman is respon
sible for the death of Gen. Mel'herson
at Atlanta; that had it not been for
tho personal couragu and soldierly (hir
ing of Gen. lllalr the march to the hc.-i
would have become a disgraceful retreat ;
that Gen. .Sherman utterly failed to pro
tect the forces ot Gen. Blair when the
latter were attacked In front and rear.
Mr. lilalr alludes to the tact that ho
has known .Sherman from boyhood, nud
says that he never knew him to say a
kind word of a comrade, nud that his
"Memoirs" would not be like tho man
lie has known had he not Indiscrimi
nately arrogated to himself nil the honor
and glory.
Mr. lllalr explains that he writes thu
letter because Ids brother Is still an Inva
lid, mid because the history of Sherman's
hostility to ids brother has been known
to him ever since Frank lllalr was re
