other man except Mr. Charles O'Conor.,
the city of New York is indebted for the
tinal discomfiture or the old nnjr which
so lonjr ruled and disgraced both tho city
and the Democratic party. When the
exposures of the Tammany frauds were
first made, x the position of Mr.
Tilden, aa chairman of the : mt
committee was one - of peculiar
embarrassment. It was bv no means
clear at that time how the tight Avould
end, and Mr. Tilden, in lending such riff
orous aid totnc reformers, riKeu ootu
disaster to his partr and his own politi
cal ruin. The followers of Tweed were
then the rullnir clement ot the New York
Democracy. How stronj? thev still are
may be seen by the vindictive hostility
with which they now pursue Mr. Tilden
on account ot his action in 1971.
September 17th, 1S7-1, tho same paper
aid of his nomination tor governor by
the Democratic convention ol the etate :
It is understood this mornins that the
furious assault ol a taction of the New
York Democrat) upon Mr. Samuel J.
Tilden Iws failed, and that Mr. Tilden
will, be nominated to-day by a very
strong vote. No reason for the opposi
tion to him has been publicly stated.
None could b stated ; for his phonal
qualities and p5t serriccs, wlucli
have aroused tho hostility ol the
jrrnsplnsr and disreputable, are precisely
those which commend him to the respect
of all honest citizens. The name of Mr.
Tilden will add dignity and strength to
the ticket, and If it Is true that the conven
tion has virtually agreed to adopt it, we
may congratulate the party upon such
an eminently sensible decision.

is nothing of diplomatic evasion or vague
generality about his words. They are as
clear as they are strong. .
Ou March litih, 1S75 tho TAbvu said
of Mr. 1 ilden s expected onslaught on
It is understood that Gov. Tildeu will
send in his special message ou the canal
frauds w-day, and the gossips ot Albany
are probably no: mistaken in predicting
that it will be somewhat, btarlling in its
churacter. ' Gov. Tilden fcbowed us,
when he took hold ot the Tweed frauds,
that lie was not a mere rhetorical re
former, fcatifcfied with general denuncia
tion of robbery, and w e presume that In
his fight against the rascalities in the
canal department every blow will tell as
surely and severely as in the memorable
campaign ol 1871. .. . .
On the 13th ol April the 'Tribune said
ot Mr. Tilden :

ready to begin its work. We have every
reason to expect result from it, whioh
we ware forbldden to - hope for

(o Mr. Tilden In these words :
Gov. Tilden and Mr. Charles O'Connor
were conspicuous leaders of the Demo
uratle party, and bravely and ably led in
thn exposure' and prosecutions which
led to the detection and punishment ot
the robberies by Tweid, Sweeney, t on
nolley. and other associates. Gov. Til
den devoted bis time personalty to the
Investigation, and appeared in court as a
witness to prove the guiU ot' tho con
spirators. . As soon- as be
got iu office he addressed himself to the
investiration of. the chronic abuses aud
robberies in the management of the state
canals. His r-roceediugs produced as
much consternation in his own party as
a few years before he had produced In the
Tweed business. He was appealed to by
the party leaden to forbear, but be was
resolute. The Democratic legislature
did noL.dare to denounce him. but it
sought . ' to -.. defeat his examina
tions bv appointing ' legislative
committees to do the work. Got, Til
den was not thus to be defeated, and,
taklnsr the responsibility, he appointed
commissioners outside the legislature to
prosecute the Investigations and bring
the robbers to justice.
it must be remembered that the papers
from which the above extracts have been
taken aro all leading Republican jonrnals,
and all devoted to the cause of Hayes and
Wheeler. By their own testimony. Mr.
Tilden is an able governor of a great
state, an efficient reformer of public
abuses and an unquestionably honest
man. ; ' v

People who are at all alareacd about
New York may as well remember that
that State has been Democratic for three
successive years, and In eight out of the
last ten elections. In 1873, before Mr.
Tilden's nomination for Governor, it was
carried by a ood majority. In 1874, Mr.
Tilden was elected by more than 60,000
elected by the rural districts, for he had
an absolute majority of the votes, leaving
out, of consideration entirely tha great
Democratic cities of New- York and
Brooklyu. . Last year hi reform tick
et was elected by a smaller, majority
becanM the men uhco peculation he
had exposed were bitter in righting
against iu' This year be is stronger Aon
ever. It Is thin year tbat his reduction
of taxes takes effect, and the better aanse
ot both parties is rally lug. to bis support.
Even tbo men, who constlentionaly op
posed hht nomination at St." Louis, be
cause they , believed that he oould not
carry the state, are now hla earnest sup
porters. The. resalt in Indiana has in
sured the vote of tbat state la November.
Mr. Tilden now. needs only the vote of
his own state, where be is known and re
spected and where he has lived all his
honored life, to be elected. These thirty
five votes aro surely blf. and the man
who will tako the oath of office on the

Of Hoe. Lewis Steward, th) candidate
of tbo Democrats and Independents for
governor of Illinois we have heretofore
said but little. Having been introduced
to Mr. Steward ome eight years ago by
our townsman, lion. C. W. Marsn, the
last slab) Konaior iroia this district, and
tbe remark with which Mr. Marsh ac
companied the introduction, that be was
one of tbo best aud dearest-beaded men
in tbe. Kjatrf, having made a lasting im
pression upon our mind, wc Interviewed
Mr. Marsh, the other day, in reference to
tlic moral character and mental capacity
of Mr. Stewart, and the loilowin; is the
Mr. Marsh expressed himself frankly,
as wilting to give auy information de
sired in reference to his old partner.
Althourh he 'ts well known to be an nn
compromlHing Republican, and will vote
against Mr. steward, yet the reputation
bo enjoys lor perfect candor and dkruity
of tone in his political career m well Vs
iu his social lite, will not permit him to
remain silent, when, tho ends of justice
demand an utterance from him.
The following is the substance of the
interview : -
. rAlltor Democrat- You remember, Mr.
MarsU, the occasion when you firm uudu
me acquainted with Mr: Stewurov
Kx-benator M.ush Very well and I
think as much ot him its a citizen bow as
1 did then, alihoujru 1 did not agree with
him in politics. ou do not say n much
of him, aa your candidate for governor,
as tho laeis justify you in saying.
. Editor Ltmoertit- Will you give Die a
general estimate of Mr. Steward, as
you have known him through so many
Ex-Scuator Marsh Yes, willing)'. I
have known Steward fclnee 1800 miico
laOi Intimately. For several years have
been his business partner. I can say that
lie is a man ot very great uaturnl ability,
which be has improved by much studv
by a thorough system ot Belf-educulibu.
He is extremely comprehensive, versa
tile and unusually well posted on all cur
sent subject!, besides having given much
auoution to science and philosophy, in
deed one can scarcely mention any tub
ject which he cannot grapplo with ease,
and show much well considered informa
tion concernm- it. Even in polite
jterntur he is well posted ; be
taught himself to road French. Has
read law, and bas been admitted to the
bur of Kcmudl county, though h docs
wit practice. In fact, instead of Mng an
ignorant, illitemto man, he Is quite the
reverse. He Is a sinruiarly concise and
perspicuous loiter writer, socially, ho is
one ol the most hospitable of men keeps
literally an "open house." For several
years 1 have been aa intimate and free at
his houra as in my own ; it is, and has
been, ho.ue wlen at 1'lano. i never saw
anything improper nor. "outrageous"
never thonchr of such a thing; alway
considered hU household well regulated.
Ho is a very jilain outspoken man ; usei
Uie "king's English" bluntly. and always
