irratluy houlh may echo it: natives in
higher oilleo .'till may e;irry tld.s follypoii
from Southern city to city; caroler edi

that the wiilte South Inn never forgiven
her conquerer nnd never accepted the
llrU idea of Hie declaration of Indcpend
ancc; thu Idea which alone juitllie.s tho
eo't and earnaye of live terrible years.
nn: soirriiintNLit tamkd.
The wild .Southerner has been tamed ;
he will never ll.'ht the Ilajj njjaiu. Tho
cuuiiln of the mud man U It-It. lie teek.s
to write over the lla lu old lie. Calhoun
tau'lit, and every w hite adult lu thu
South bclicvci to-day, that lids i awhile
iimiiN trovennnent." Though you brav
them with the pestle in a mbrtnryou wfll
nccr erueh tld folly out of them.
Heaven forbid that I should do tho white
nice of the .South Mich foul wrouasto
believe otherwise. 1 respect their Miieer
Ity, their per.-l-tent loyality to convic
tion; I remember the long sullctitig, the
faithful Cavalier whoso party ended only
when its l.tst adherut .uuk Into thcirravc.
Tliouh tho ulorioii.i Koiimlhead con
quered and had, in the name of justice
and lllx.-rty.tho right to coiiqucr.Uodauil
human nature being hi.s nllie-, still
all honor to the Mont Ktiglih
blood that never Milllcd tides nor traded
lu convictions. I will not do btich dis
credit to the Kuclhh blood thl side of
the ocean as to lielleve that wo cannot
hov as stout hearts here to-dav, spite ot
Uencr.ili, Seuatorii, Vicol'roldents
and dabsters in verso and proM1. Tho
tioutli liold-s to-day thu same fouIs un-M.-lllh,
untlrliiL'. faithful to (Uatli us
Kngland did In IdXMifcS and 1715. Tho
North will vet find her sjomiw, Jl.unii
Uen am! Vane. Does blood here run so
thin that the stout conviction which In
Kii'daud It took uhunUivd years to root
out sells out and skulks away lu ten
years? Thoto who think so do not
know the .South. The men who lollowcd
Sherman hi the march to thu sea, will
they dance with
WILSON ON IIOSK IXAVKS
back again? You who think so do not
know tho North. Tho perfonal ambition
or party Indifference which killed tho
Puree bill levealed Northern weakness.
Congress showed Its untlttiess to deal
wltli the epoch. Wo need a statue which
showed tho nation equal to the hour, and
Its wish to Intrust tho President wltli the
means to meet It. It Is always danuer-
ous to trust men wholly, hotter far to

must take for Pre-Ideut a man who Is
himself a force bill that is, (Jraut. I
am certain that under no other man can
the Itcpubllean party hoio for success.
If wo nuiH hu balked and put back let it
not be by tho hepublieans, but as Eng
land was by the traitor .lames, who ne
cessitated tho revolution of 1C5S. John
son's treason in 1SC8 saved us. Demo
cratic treason In 1S70 may save us again.
A Kopublicau's ttvaou would bo doubly
dangerous. With these views I demand
of tiraut that ho lead us again to vic
tory. III.A1NT. AND M011T0N.
Illaine and .Morton are strong men. but
they cannot carry tho nation. If Grant
doe- not give us tho iuu of his name, in
mv opinion, tho Democrats will elect
their President. That means tho white
South victorious, as 1 was ridiculed for
anticipating hi lSGtl: it means civil rights
trampled under foot; tho Confederate
debt recognized and paid in part or lu
full: It means comiieusatiou for tho slaves
whom the war (reed. Congress will dls-
cus these issues lor the next four years.
Tho North, with a sensitive pocket, may
rally and nroveut tho full success ot these
schemes, but tho very discussion will
carry down our bonds twenty per cent in

ODJKCTIONS TO A "TlllltO 1 IIIIM,"
I remember point ot policy and single

I could neither glvo sympathy nor sup

work of tills era Is to stereotypo Into stat

I claim for General Grant that no man lu
nubile lifo has douu nioro than he has to
help on this tlmu of decent consistency
between m-ofesslon and nraetleo. I sun-
port thu man who mado peace lu Now
Orleans rather than the committee which
trailed It away. The fatu of tho negro Is
still tho problem of our politics. There
Is no nubile man whom I should feel
perfectly safe In trusting it with, hut

Itor, you know, can keep a bankrupt on
the rsiuL'etl ttlgis lor n year or inort; mid
worry lilin until lie gives up his nuppol
tlotts possession". Under these supple
mentary proceedings, Shearman had to
bo in dally attendaneo at the olllce of .Mr.
Ucdtlcld, in tho 7'i'hicj building, room
number nine. Sometime" he would havo
to sit there half u day waiting for an ex
amination. Unable to go Into any other
business until ho was thruugh bankrupt
cy, Shearman picked up u "law book lu
Kedlleld's olllce and began to read thu
law. He Is naturally quick, and, little by
little he absorbed thu contend' of tho.-u
law books-, until, when ho wasdiseliarged
from under the Injunction, ho became a
clerk in thu olllce of UaWd Dudley Field.
From that position he ro-e to be chief clerk
In Dud. Fk-ld's big practice. Writing a
good hand, ami having a wonderful con
ciseness of expression, he was set to
work by Ilenjamln Vaiighu Abbott, now
his associate In tho hecclier ca-e. to draw
up forms under tho now code. Shear
man was admitted to tho bar about 1$(I,
and he Is said to bo tho only man sitcce
fnl there who was brought up to iticr-ehaudl-e.
lu Ib'iT, Shearman went Into
partnership wltli young Dud. Field, old
Dud's son. Ilehlud tills llrm as counsel
lor stood Field re. About tins time
Jim. Fill: came on the carpet, and made
his great collusion with Tweed, Field and
Gould. Shearman then developed enor
mously nnd Juibolus ex mncliina for tho
whole brood. Mo was familiarly said at
the bar to have the soul of a Jew and the
body of a Yankee. As Flak's counsel,
ho invented all forms and modes of eva
sion and advantage, showing a pertinaci
ty and un-criipulousness which amazed
the old heads of the bar in New York.
Having had a mercantile beginning, he
would do what men bred to tho bar
would not do, and under his general di
rection soino of the most atrocious things
ever attempted were put hi quest. Peo
ple may remember how. when Dormaii
It. KiUou had followed Jim FUk with a
boldness which even daunted that rascal,
some rulllan struck him on tho head with
a sand bag on thu .street, and from that
blow his health and application have been
ever since impaired. -Mr. Shearman, It Is
needless to say, was not particularly re-H-utful
on the subject.
Tile Lincoln Morrow.
Col. John Hay. formerly private secre
tary of Abraham Lincoln, Is a member of
tho New York Tribune editorial stall',
which probably gives rise to the supposi
tion that tho following, a Tribune edito

I.lneolns, especially those ol Sirs.
Lincoln, is from tho pen of that gentle

lias ions been known to tho-e nearest to
her that her mind never entirely recov
ered Irom tho shock of the President's
irsassinatinu. It would havo been
brain of extraordinary force
which could have withstood that night of
horrors. Her husband, to whom, In
spite of nil gossip to tho contrary, she
was devotedly attached, was shot down
at her side m perfect health and strength.
iieruress was .-tamed Willi ills Moon.
She passed tho long hours of Ids agony at
his bedside, refusing to believe thu sen
tence of Ids surgeon, and lu tho morning,
when all was over, sho confronted a lo-s
such as has been experienced by but
few women. For the next few weeks it
was doubtful If she would ever emerge
troin the shadow ot death In which she
lay. hut everything she said or did hi
th.it delirium of despair was' wickcdlyaud
sliAinefully used against her allerward.
it was tne iitity oi uie country, out oi
regard to its own honor and dignity, to
provhlu for the lutiire. Tills Congress
for years reluscd to do. Not a cent was
raised for tho purposu by juiblle sub
srrlptlon. When at last .Mr. Sumner
forced a bill through Congress giving her
tho pitiful pension of tU.OOO, It only pass,
cd alter malicious and scurrilous oppo.-I-
tion, in uiu course oi which ncr enemies
quoted her utterances and acts which had
proceeded, utter troubles, Irom her dis
ordered brain. She was entitled to thu
gentlest and most tender considerations
Irom every decent in;jn ; out she was at
tacked by Congressmen nnd Milled by
a portion of tho press us if she had been
an able-bodied politician, courting votes
amtcritism. 'mere is no dotintiuat tne
treatment had its effect in preventing her
recovery from the great shock which had
shattered her' life. Thu dcalli of her
young boy, whom she Ulolicil. HUed un
the measure of her sorrows aim finished
tho wreck of her Intellectual faculties.
As long as It was possible, her sou, tho
worthy Inheritor of his lather's charac
ter, boro with a touching patience and de
votion thu consequence's of this misfor
tune. Wu deem It not intrusive to say,
that tho only surviving ' Mr. Lin
coln deserves, in this calamity, thu res
licet and consideration of every one. Ho
lias borne hhuseltalwnvs with lrreproach

nollilii'.' from thu country which was
so deeply indebted to Ids rather. Ho has
gained an enviable pu-Illon hi Ids profes
sion nnd in society by his own merit and
industry. Ho Is not a man to glvo way
to misfortune, lmweter sorely tried, hut
ho ought not to ho left to meet tills last
nllictlon without the nsMirancu of respect
and good will which his character, no
