PARIS, Sep. 4, 1868.
"lit )Kt.u Sik: It was my hope
that my distance from home wculd
have saved me from all participation
in the political excitement prevailing
there; but I notice in one of the
newspapers that I am heart and hand
with Air. Seymour. I am not aware
of anything in the present or the past
Which could rightfully subject me to
such an imputation. 1 have been
acquainted with Mr. Seymour moie
than a quarter of a century. He is
an amiable gentleman of unexcept
ionable private character, aad re
spectable talents, but you know aa
well as I that he ha not a . single j
qualification for the successful exe
cution ot the high official trust to
which he' has been -nominated: and
he Is especially deficient In that firm,
neai of purpose which, in critical!
emergencies is the only safeeuard
against public disorder and calamity.
He has been twice, at different times,
Governor of the State of New York.
and he has in neither case had talent
or tact to keep the Democratic party
(together more than two years. I
should regard his election at this
uncture, when steadiness of purpose, j
decision sad self-control are so much
needed, as one of the greatest calam
ities that could befall the country.
'Moreover, he has been put in nom
ination by a Convention which' has
openly declared the purpose ot those
represents, to pay the greater part
the debt, contracted to preserve
the Union, in depreciated paper.
Such s measure would In my judg
ment be m: palpable violation- of the
public faith, pledged under circum
stances which should have been bind
ing on all honorable men. Sey
mour has made public speeches to
show that it ia our duty to par the
debt in specie. Ia accepting his
nomination to the Presidency, he
adopts1 the declaration that it ought
be paid in paper. I know nothing
humlhaong in the history ot
American politics as this, tergiversa
tion. It was, perhaps, not unfit that

brilliant services in the field, but be

Pollard of the Richmond Examin
er, paid this tribute to Gen. Grant in
"He had, with remarkable ability,
accorded honorable and liberal terms
to the vanquished -army. He did
nothing to dramatize the surrender ;
he made no triumphal entry into
Richmond; he avoided all thoaa
displays of triumph so dear to the
northern heart; ; he spared every
thing that might wound the feelinir.
or imply the humiliation -of a van
quished foe. There were no Indecent
exultations, no 'sensations.' no
shows ; he received the surrender of
his adversary with every courteous
recognition due an honorable ene
my.'and conducted the closing scenes)
with as much simplicity as possible.'

"General Grant's last brilliant
campaign seta the final seal upon his
reputation. It stamps him as the
superior of his antagonist, as well
as of all the commanders who bar
