Elsewhere we publish a letter from
Col. Ben. L. Wiley. Republican candi
date for congress in this district, denying
that be I a debt-shirker, that he ran away
from Kirby Smith, and that 1m was dis
missed from the army for cowardice.
The colonel's denial of his debt dis
honesties Is very carefully made. At this
time, he says, there are only two cases in
which he I security tor other men which
has not yet been paid that he has
the receipt of his friend who was on his
paper showing that he has settled with
him that be had this receipt at the time
he was charged by "Page," of Union
county .with ''Dealing" one of his sure ties.
It will be observed that the colonel Is
careful to not say that this surety debt
was paid before he was nominated for
congress. It is quite probable that, after
he had been nominated, he w as threat
ened by h,s abused friend, and paid the
money in order to escape the disagree
able consequences. The nomination of
the colonel was a lucky event for this
surety of his. The other "tw o cases in
which I w as security for other men.
w hich have not yet been paid." w ill prob
ably remain unpaid. nnle? the colonel
is crowded as.in the case of "my friend
who was on my paper," and whose re
ceipt the colonel now holds, and did
hold at the lime "Page" Intimated
that a gentleman by the name of Ben. L.
Wiley had abused tlie confidence of a
poor fellow w ho lives somewhere In tlie
neighborhood of the home of this rather
slippery granger. '"Every other citizen
in Union county," innocently remarks the
colonel, "to whom I ever owed a debt,
has been paid one hundred cent on the
dollar and interest, and eM if any were
made." Why restrict this profession
of honesty which honesty was,
it appears, compelled by processes in
which costs accrued why restrict this
profession to Union county : Because,
probably, this rich granger owes money
in other counties and will not pay. We
know he docs in this county that he has
owed little debt in Cairo for twenty-one
years, which debts be does not deny. He
good-naturedly laughs at his creditors
when asked for them. He know s he can
escape the payment, and is therefore dis
honest enough to refuse to pay. Let the
colonel deny this. We have the proof of
this charge, and can stick it fast to him.
"Now the facts are," says the colonel,
"that I was never attacked by Kirby
'Smith's rebels in Arkansas, and more
over never fled from that or any other
'field "of danger never had a charge
of the kind preferred against me,
'much less was 1 dismissed from
the service oa any such charge."
Again we call attention to the
caret ul manner in which the colo
nel denies that he was dis
charged from the service. He
declares that ho "never fled from that or
any other field of danger." Why did he
not also say: "I was never dismissed
'from the service on that or any other
charge :" He is careful to not say so.
He seeks to leave the impression that he
was not dismissed from the service tor
any cause, but he dots not deny that he
was. He denies that he w as dismissed
for cowardice. He falsities, by Implica
tion, his record as a soldier. by, being
charged with cowardice and dismissal
from the service, did he not w hen he de

We do not wish to do the colonel in
justice, but we believe tins charge.
We acquit him of running away from
Kirby Mnith, and of cowardice. It was
the rebel General Wirt Adams he did
not run towards. In tin operations
around Vicksburg, after the colonel
tiaa been reinstated, on one
occasion his cavalry charged
upon the cavalry of Wirt Adams. The
colonel's men were as brave and as good
as any soldiers in the army, and were
anxious for the fray. He placed himself
at the head of his troopers, gave the com
mand, a id at their head made a charge.
Before the rebels were reached. Col.
Wiley's horse became fractious, left the
head of the column, and ran into a fence

charge, but the colonel could not induce
his horse to ?tt out of ih fene corner,
and be lost a glorious opportunity to
cover himself with glory. Two days af

A AHLStrsSTSlZ ftCAkSSAL.
A Milwaukee co-rejondent of the
Chicago Tvne "revives tte history of
the Infamous manner In which (.'art
Schurz was treatel bv the Republican
press and party in Ki, when he refused
to support Grant as a candidate for re-
elecliou." Schurz had Ijii from the
year 1803 until the war broke out, a resi
dent of Wisconsin. Imring the early part
of this period he had purchased a tract of
land, broken il up Into lots and
sold .them to small purchasers.
Taking this as the ground-work of their
attack on him, the lU-publican news-
pIers, and notably the Chicago Inter.
Ocean, charged that he had never pro
cured a title to the property which he
purchased ; that he only made a partial
paymeut ot the purcliate money, giving
a mortgage for the balance ; that in his
sales he received partial or total pay
merit, and gave warrantee deeds to the
buyers; that he afterwards failed to
make bis own payments due on the land
that tlie mortgage wldeh he gave on the
tract was foreclosed, stripping the pur
chasers from him of all their rights, with
tlie loss of the money paid to him. These
charges were supported by the affidavits
ol some ot the purchasers from Schurz,
all of which were published In lull in
tha InUMktan, and all the Republican
papers took up the cry. Schurz was called
ft land-shark," "swindler ,w a "w ild
rat real estate speculator" and was Jeered
at and sneered at by nil the administra

thors of the charges, proved the utter
falsehoods of some of the statement s and
the rrcDOsterous exaggeration of
others. Many of the old lKmocrntic
friends and neighbors of Schurz inter
ested themselves in helping to clear his
name Ol the disgrace the Republicans had
attempted to fasten upon it, and the re
sult was that the authors of the affidavits
against him met him and retracted all
they had said. Afternoon and evening
meeting were held ; a grand dinner wa
given to Schurz ; people from all parts of
the State lloaked to Watertowutlio received
