a Dastardly Attack.
(From the Congressional Record.
Mr. Hewitt of New York: Mr.
Bpeaker, to me the speech w hich the gen
tleman from Iowa delivered this evening
wa a painful surprise and a melancholy
experience. It I had not heard it, I could
not hare believed that a gentleman of his
intellectual endowments could so tar ab
dicate his own self -respect and forfeit the
good opinion ot his fellow-members in
this house an to have Indulged in the par
tisan, and I am sorry to add, the uiulic
kui statements which he ha made In
regard to Gov. Tilden. I confess that I
do not Intend to make any elaborate re
ply to what be has said in this house. I
approach the subject as I would take hold
nfasiimy snake, with a desire to get
rid of it at the earliest possible moment.
But charges were made against one
whom 1 have known lor so many years
and with such intimacy that it seems
to me I have no other course to take than
to brand the charges as utterly false be
fore this house and before the country.
Mr. Tage : Which charges does the
gentleman from New York mean ?
Mr. Uewitt: t will 6 tale the charges;
I was going to state them. The first of
w hich was that Gov. Tilden had been a
secessionist, and there wtre quoted as
authority lor that assertion statements
and passages from an open letter to the
late Judge Kent, dated in 1SC0. The
geuUetuaa from Iowa possesses ouly ex
tracts from (hat Jet U r. He was good
enough to allow me to look at these ex
tracts. Mr. Lames: 1 rise to a point ol orJer.
Ifther tsarytbuig properly before the
Loum; at this time, we ought nut as rep
resentatives of the Arucriwtn people to

atltutlon, but by the Articles ot Confed

tleman made against Gov. Tilden was in

ever assisted a soldier fo , ' the
war, I answer him vy saying
that when the first call for troops came,
Tammany hall, w hich had not then fallen
into Uie hands of the ring, raised a regi
ment, and the crand sachem of Tammany
hall, William 1. Kennedv, was colonel of
the regiment. It was otllcered mostly by
members of the Tammany society, and
being myself a member and from the
tte ot my health unable to go to the
war, although I rendered other services,
I sent my n phew us one of the oftlccrs
of that regiment. ,
Mr. Lapham: Will the (rentlcmmi al4
low me to ask him a qestion:
Mr. Hewitt: Yes, sir..
Mr. Laplwm: Does not the gentleman
know that the call for the nieetiug ut
Cooper institute immediately after tho
fail ot Fort Sumter was presented to Mr.
i ilden for him to sign and he refused to
sis n it and refused lo attend the meeting?
Mr. Hewitt: I will answer that question
that it Is not true that he refused to sign
the call, and that it In true that he did at
tend the meeting applause and (
defy the gentleman to bring any author
ity for the charge he has insinuated.
Mr. Lapham: It is a fact as well
known in the state of New York as nny
other facts In its h story.
Mr. Hewitt: It U not so. Mr. Samuel
Sloan, fh present president of the Dela
ware and Lackawanna r!lroa I company,
then a member of the Union Sifely com
mittee of N"W York, applied to Mr. Til
den, at n time when he was engaged in
the triul of a ense before a referee, to nf-
fix his name lo the call, and he said : "1
uin very busy Just now; send me the
resolutions tif'.er I nin out of this c:i.-.
and it they are entirely proper 1 will
sign' the call." When the meeting took
plnce he nt leaded it. The call was never
sent to him and lie never refused to sisrn
it, br.t like the prudent and sagacious
man which he is. he desired to know the
nature of the resolutions. They did not
receive his absolute and unqualified ap
proval. Now I say that Tammany hall
raised a regiment, and that Gov. Tilden
was a contributor and a large contribu
tor to the fund required to lit out the
Mr. Conger: How much?
Mi. Hewitt: lam not going to quote
dollars and cents. Patriotism is above
dollars and cents in some quarters, but

the United States or from the city ot
New York. Applause. Now so much

Mr. Hewitt : I state when, when I say
the Tammany regiment was raised ;
and I state where, In the city ot
New York; and I state how much, for I
do not know the exact amount, but it

Democrats did not go begiring, carrying

further controversy with him.

The Speaker pro tempore: The gentle
man from New York must address the
chair, and not the gentleman from Michi

and of the house.
Mr. Davy: I supposed we had settled
all our difficulties, and that this was a
sort ot a love-feast.
Mr. Kandall: The love-feast is to be
on the 4th of March next.
Mr. Davy: We must not get our mad
Mr. Hewitt: .Subsequently to this
period I know ot no man in New York
who was more frequently called into
counsel there and in Washington during
the troublous times ot the war, and wheu
there was delay in raising the men re
quired to recruit the armies ot the United
States I know that twice he was called
for by President Lincoln and came to
Washington and held careful consulta
tion with him, resulting in the early and
rapid tilling of the quota from the state
ot New York. And I know
that during no period ot the
whole of that trying time was
there ever a doubt expres-ed in the c'rty
of New York, iu any quarter, as to the
loyalty and petriotir-ni of Samuel J, Til
den. The gentleman from Iowa says
that when Mr. Tilden went to the Chi
cago c.xiveutlon he wa in favor ot a res.
olntiou practically declaring that the war
was, u failure uud ought to be brought to
an end. 'I'Uat gentleman must have

never was any occalon in which Gov.
Tilden made a declaration iu favor ot the

would study the record of the

now eome down to the next eharve.that
Gov. Tilden was the associate of William

wheo unci where he ever made
that he levied a contribution on William
M. Tweed ol $ft,(J0, and th .t im la-
sued a tircolar la conmiution witn
William M. .Tweed" Intended to
piwhiote' the fraudulent election of n
governor of the state of New York. It
is true that Gov. Tilden was chairman ot
tho Democratic committee of the slate of
New York, and It Is al) true that Wil
liam M. Tweed was a member of that
committee. And if the gentleman
knows anything nbout the organization
of such committees In tho state of New
York, lie knows that each district nomi
nates and sends Its own member ; that
Gov. Tilden had no more to do with the
appointment of William M. Tweed a n
member of thai committee than he has to
do with the man who is supposed to
regulate the tnoon. He waa there right
fully a member of the committee, and at
the time he whs so acting he bad iiot
achieved the bad eminence whloh he sub
sequently attained and which he now oc
cupies. No contribution was ever levied
upon Mr. Tweed. Mr. Tweed did as
other people nave doue, as I myself have
done, and ai I have no doubt the gentle
man lrom Iowa has done, sent a contri
bution to tho fund requited by the com
mittee to carry on the state election.
That was levying no contribution. Then
as to the Ism of that circular, the lie has
been nailed here by my colleague (Mr.
Cox). If any man doubts whether that
declaration of Gv. Tilden, which ha
been read, was published in the Earning
W ot the 4th f November. ltju:s. the
tiles are accessible to them. I saw It wvh
mv own eyes, I know it was tlien pul
lished. I know that not more than
twenty-four hours elapsed from the time
the charge was made in the Eccn'nii iW,
and it was first made in that paper, until
the denial was made in the siuiie paper.
That denial I here Insert :
CAUI I-ROM MR. Tlf.l'i:.
To the Kditor ot the Evening 1'ost :
Silt: My attention has been called to .
an article in your journal of last evening
containing a circular to which my name
is appended. 1 hasten to assure you that
you will not lose your reputation as
critics by assuming, on internal evidence
as you have correctly done, that no such
paper was ever written, sigued, isued or
authorized by mo or with any participa
tion or knowledge on my part. I have
read it for the first time in your columns:
but 1 have no reason to "believe that it
had any such evil purpose as you suspect.
Kr myself. I refused in 1841 to sign thp
famous circular relating to Texas, which
i celebrated In the hNtoryof the Ertning
rt. though I may have been tempted
by the illustrious association in which I
should have found myself. Neither be
fore that nor since have I ever been con
cerned in any circular marked secret,"
"confidential" or "private," nor shall I
be, unless I should adopt that device tor
the purpose of getting some valuable
truth disguised In such a form, secured n
w ide publicity in the Evtning Pont and all
the Republican newspapers. Very truly
yours. S. J. Tilden. "
New Y ork, Nov. 3, 1SCS.
Mr. Foster : Was It ever known w ho
perpetrated that lorgery on Gov. Tilden ?
Mr. Hewitt : Nothing was ever known
positively about it except that Mr. Tweed
was probably the person who sent out
that circular. 1 have never heard that
there is any positive evidence to that ef
fect. But as he is, unhappy as he Is to
day for his crimes, I hesitate to charge
him with a new crime w ithout evidence.
In that respect I hope the gentleman
from Iowa w ill follow my example.
Mr. Cannon (of Illinois): Does the
gentleman claim that the circular was
issued for an improper purposed
Mr. Hewitt: 1 do not know whether it
was proper or improper; but I say it w

quently the ring, perhaps beginlng their
corrupt practices at that time for aught 1
know to thecontrary, became so power
ful in New York that they threatened to
drive out, and succeeded in driving out,
almost every decent man from the Dem
ocratic party ot that city. Gov. Tilden
for more than three years, like a sleuth
hound upon the scent, followed these
people patiently, secretly, diligently,
spending that money ot which the gen
tleman from Iowa thinks he is so partiui
onous with a most liberal hand ; yes,
with a magnificence oi liberally that no
private citizen has ever exhibited in this
country in the performance of a public
duty not imposed by any obligation Oi
law. I wa with liuu in those transac
tions; I know what he did; 1 know his
untihug tflorts day and night; 1 know
w hat an army of clerks he kept busy ; I
know how he tracked these people to
their dens of iniquity.and finally dragged
them forth to public execration ; and.
not stopping there, he has pursued them
until they are either in prison or in ex
ile, and judgment Amounting to millions
of dollars have b. en taken againt them ;
and over $000,000 in one case has been
restored to the treasury of the city of

Mr. Hewitt : I can give a satisfactory
answer to Uie gentleman's question. 1
can say to him that Mr. Tweed at that
time knew that Gov. Tilden was his bit

was trying to cnHi hhn ; and, a the
gentleman khow perfectly well it it had
not been for the stanch supiKirt and ab
solute confidence which the rural Democ
racy of the state ol New York extended
to Gov. Tilden. lie would have been
drivfn from the chairmanship of the

he should be. Huf he was kept there by
the honest Democrats of the slate of
New ,York until he had pulled down
and destroyed this temple ot iniquity and
driven these scoundrels out ol tho places

Mr. Hewitt : Now I am not going to
be interrupted and cross questioned.
Mr. Davy : 1 have one more question I
would like my colleague lo answer.
Mr. Hewitt : 1 will answer; but 1 want
to say that 1 am an utterly ui. practiced
sjeakcr. I have never before addressed
a body like this without notes for ny
thlng'like this length of time. If gen
tlemen are putting thee questions with
the purpose of disconcerting lue, they
ought to have uioi-e respect lor them
selves. Mr. Davy: I hope my colleague does
not attribute any such motive to me.
A Member 'vto Mr. Hewitt): You can
hold jour own vety well.
Mr. Davy: I want the naked facts of

Mr. Hewitt: The bare, naked fact
is this: There was v:ir. ''war to the

Mr. Davy : Now, ak my colleague

Mr. Davy: Certainly. 1 bow to the
decision of the cbuir but I did not pro
pose to yield to the decision of the gen
tleman from PeiinsvlvaiiiH (Mr. Rand

ness that I have answered and am willing
to answer every question of it substantive
character bearing upon the merits of this
case which any man can uk inc. Rut
when gentlemen undertake to catecise
me about petty matters of detail 1 must
decline to answ er. Mr. Speaker, the tact
is perfectly notorious, and certainly no
man in his senses, no lair and just man
will ever lor a moment intimate that
there was the slightest Intimacy, per
sonal or political, at any time between
Samnel .1. Tilden and William M.Tweed.
There never was. sir. There was that
association which comes from the en
forced appointment of men on com
mittees and ot their living in the same
community and belonging to the saiiie
party; but tho one man stood in t lie
community above and beyond reproach,
and the other was always nu object ot
suspicion and finally ot detestation.
Mr. Davy rose.
Mr. Hewitt: I will not be interrupted
more. I have shown a disposition to an
swer nil reasonable questions, and I de
cline to be iiiterruttu-d any morn. Now
the gentleman from Iowa
.Mr. Lanham: The gentleman is speak
ing by the grace of this house.
5lr. Hew itt : I am not speaking by the
grace of anybody but of my own col
league and of my constituents. Now,
the geullemnn from Iowa indulged in one
insinuation of so mean and despicable a
character that 1 almost hesitate to refer
to it. If he could have? blushed and I
looked into lus face as I sat near him on
purpose if ho were capable of blushing,
he would have blushed then, but he did
not. He insinuated that the private for
tune of Gov. i ilden had been acquired by
some dishonorable and did not dare to
say dishonest, but he Implied it dishon
est practices iu connection w ill' railway
and corporations. Now, when a man
makes an insinuation ot that sort, lie
should be prepared with the proof, it Is
a mean, unmanly, dishonorable charge
for any man to make behind tho back of
another man who is not here to answer,
lint 1 can tell that genileman, and I
hope his own record is as clear and as
good, that Gov. Tilden was called from
1S57 to lWiO into almost every broken
down railway corporation iu the West;
that while ho found them unable to pay
running expenses, he took them hi hand
uud so uduiiuistercd them that in every
ea-.e the bonds, whether first, second or
third mortgage, and the stock, preferred
and common, all ultimately went above
par; and he enriched people
lhat were wise and toitu
nate enough to have se
cured his services, l am personally
among the numbers of those who were
benefited bv his w ie and segacious man
agement ; and 1 say, so far from having
been overpaid In any ot these transac
tions, thul his legal fees and his personal
services were the cheapest and most
poorly rewarded 1 have ever known iu a
long business career, dealing in large
transaction in all part-; of this country
and in Kuropc. 1 defy these gentlemen
lo lay iheir hands upon a dishonest dol
lar in the possession ot Samuel J. I ilden.
1 say that the people whom ho served
aro his friends to-dav, and hi best
friends. And It Is his service there which
he rendered to the West, notwithstand
ing the insinuations ot the gentleman
lrom Iowa, that will give blin the vote of
thus great Western stales within whose
border lie reconstructed highways w hich
are to them to-dav the arteries of com
merce and public blessings, the value of
Allien cannot he properly estimated.
And as through the whole ol his remark

them, he has been the truest of friends,
he has been the most zealous and tam
est ot patriots, mo to-day he is the
wisest, the most accomnllsbed statesman
in the land, and he will by the Messing of
