Solomon (not the one who writes him
self down opposed to being taxed to pay
honest State debts) said: "I have been
young, end now am old, yet have I not
seen the r'mhteous forsaken, nor his seed
begging bread." i
It was Judas, the one carried the mon

sold his salvation for an insignificant
amount of silver. Those who can, and
will not pay their dsbts, cannot astraddle
the pearly gate, and to immortal glory.

As I feel it my duty and right as a
Democrat to be heard through the cols
umns of your paper on the subject of the
disorganized condition of the Democratic
party, I will give you my views in brief.
As to the county elections and their re
sult, I would say, it is just what any sen
sible man might expect when the Demo
cratic party is attempted to be run ' by a
set of men not known and recognized as
the head of the Democratic party proper.
We will never have any success, and we
need never expect any under such cir
cumstances. We must let the old and
tried Democrats lead off in every move
ment, and then success is certain, other
wise we are gone as a party. 1 speaK
knowingly and no sensible man will gain
say it. What 1 say, 1 repeat. .Let the
old and experienced Democrats take
hold of the matter, and all will be right
again, otherwise we need not look for
success. The Democrats of Maury Coun
ty will never hetd the cry of young De
mocr&cy, it 13 certain, and I, tor one,
hope to see a chancre, and that soon. Iiet
the old and 1 1 led msn come to the front,
ana all wnl tail in line, ard success is
cci lan:, otherwise we are ruiued as a
nam, i say tio3 in topes 01 seeing tne
Dcinourats of Maury once more united,
uu, us a Democrat of the Jackson and
Polk school, I feel the importance of see
ing and knowing that we wili yet be the
party wo were m days aoue bv. Believ
ing I speak the sentiments of the good
and true Democracy of Maury Count y, I
think 1 have, the riirht to be herd. and as
then; don't, live r.ow, cor ever did live,
aay lii-iii who wdld be prouder to see the

The DomocratHi of Tennessee met i
Convention at Nashville last Wednesday,
and nominated Gov. Dorter for re-election,
and Oen. W. D. Bate and Isham G.
Harris for State FJectors. There was a
very strong feeling among the delegate?
for an abler speaker, but party usage
prevailed, and he was re-nominated. We
opposed bis nomination on tho ground 01
availability, but having gone into the
Convention, we abide its decision, and
put his name at the head of our columns.

racy, we declare our intention to meet
and plediie ourselves to the payment ot
all debts and obligations justly due by the
State of Tennessee.
For the present, however, because of
doprosion in business, shrinkage in val
ues, the prostration of all industries and
impoverishment ot our people, we are
unable to endure, and are, therefore, op
posed to any increase of taxation and
in view of this condition ot the State it
behooves us as a people to begin at once
a thoroush system of the most rigid econ
omy, retrenchment and reform in all the
departments of the State Government.
Wp favor the abolition of all unnecessa
ry offices, the proper reduction of all ex
cessive salaries and all necessary reforms
in the law, so as to make its execution
speedy, just and certain.

Col. Oeo. R.Thelau submitted the fol
lowing minority report:
We, the undersigned, nave toe nonor to
ubn-.it the following minority report from
Saratoga. N. Y., Aug. 4. The follow
ing is Mr. Hendricks' letter:
INDIANAPOLIS, juiy Z4, iBo. ueniies
men: 1 nave tne nonor to acknowledge
the receipt of your communication,
in which you formally notified me of
my nomination by the IS at ion a l Demo.
cratie Convention at St. Louis as their
candidate for the office of Vice Presi
dent of the United States. It is a nomi
nation which I neither expected nor de.
sired, and yet I recognize and appre
ciate tne high nonor done me by the
convention, ine cnoice ol such a body,
and pronounced with such unusual
unanimity, and accompanied with so
generous an expression of esteem and
confidence, ought to outweigh merely
personal desires and preferences of my
own. It is with this feeling, and 1
trust also from a deep sense of public
duty, that I now accept the nomination
and shall abide the judgment of my
countrymen. It would have been im
possible lor me to accept the nomina
tion if I could not heartily endorse the
platform of the convention. I am grat
ified, therefore, to be able unequivoca
bly to declare that I pgree in the prin
ciples, approve the policies and sympa
thize with the purposes enunciated in
DEPLORABLE STATE OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS,
The institutions of our country have
been sorely tried by the exigencies of
civil war, and since the peaoe, by a
Hellish and corrupt management of
public affairs, which hss shamed us be-
loro civilized mankind. Bv unwise bdq
partial legislation every iudustry and
interest ol the people have Deen maae
to suffer, and in the Executive Depart
meiits of the Government, dishonesty,
rapacitv ami venality have debauched
the public service. Men known to be
unwortnv navi been promoted, wniist
others have been degraded lor fidelity
to official duty. Public office has been
in nJe the menus of priy te pront, anu
the country has been offended to see a
oiasH men. who bosst the friendship of
the sworn protectors of the State,
eicassitig fortunes by d.-i'raud.ng the
puhiie Tr 'sstiry, and bv corrupting the
servants of the people. In such a cri.-
is ol tne history of the country. re
joice that the convention at St. I.ouis
ban so ar.My raised the standard ot re-
form. Nothiug cm be well with us or
out affairs, until the public cor.scieni e,
shocked by the enormous evils and
abuses which prevail, nhall have de
roanded and compelled an
of our Ni'ional administration in its
hc"d and in its members. In such a
rKior;ntion, the removal of u single
ollieei, even ibe President, is eompnra-
tufrl.v a trill, nit matter, ii the system
which he represents and which has los-terc-ii
him as he has fostered it, is suf
tered to remain. The President alone
must not be made the hcapegoat for the
enormities of the system which infects
the public service and threatens the des
truction ot our institutions, in some
respects I hold that the preseut Kxecu
tive has been the victim, rather than
the author, of that vicious system.
Congressional aud party leaders have
been stronger than the President. No
one man could have created it ond the
removal of no one man c-n amend it.
It is thoroughly corrupt nd must- be
swept remorselessly away by the selec
tion of a government composed of ele-.
ments entirely new and pledged to ran
ical rolorm. The lirst work of reform
must evidently be the restoration of the
normal operation of the Constitution of
the United Stares with all us amend
ments. The necessities of war cannot
lie pleaded in a time of peace. The
right of local solf-KOvernuieut as guar-
aoteed by th Constitution must be
flvsrv where restored, and the centraliz
ed, almost personal imperialism, which
has been practised, m.ist be done away,
or the tirst principles lost.
Our financial system of expedients
must he reformed. Gold and silver are
the real standards o. values, and our
national currency will not be a perfect
medium of exchange until it shall be
convertible at the pleasure of the hold
er. As I have heretofore said, no one
desires a return to specie payments
more earnestly than I uo; bat 1 do not
beline it will or can be reached in har
mony with the interests of the people
by artificial measures lor the contrac
ti'on ol tlie currency, any more than :
believe that wealth or permanent pros
perity can be cteated by an inflation of
the currency. I he laws ot finance can
not be di-ircnaaded with impunity
The financial policy of the Govern
ment, it iudeed it dosorves the name of
policy at all, has been in disregard of
those laws, and therefore has disturbed
the commercial and business confidence
as well as hiudred a return to specie
paymeuts. One leature ol that policy
whs the resumption clause of the act ol
i)S75, which hss embarrassed the coun
try by tho anticipation of a compulsory
resumption for which no preparation
has been made, and without any as1-
surance that it would be practicable,
tie repeal ot that clause is necessary.
that the natural operation of financial
li-.ws may be restored, and that the bus
iness of the country may be relieved
from its disturbing and depressing in
tl .e'ice. and that a return to specie pay
ineu's limy be facilitated by the substi
tution ot a wiser and nmre prudent leg
. lation, uptl which shall iuiii .y relyon
a judicious system ot public economy
.i.d official retrenci'inopts. and, shove
'Al, ui the promot ion of prosperity in all
the ind .lit ro s of i h" people.

In the reform ot our Civil Service I
nost heartily endoree that section of
theplattorm which declares that the
Civil Service ought not to be subject to
hantre at every election, and that it
ought not to be made the bref reward
of party zeal, but ought to be awarded
tor proved competency and held for fi
delity in the public employ. I hope
never again lo see the cruel snd re
morselcs proscription for political
opinions, which has disgraced the ad
ministration of the last eight years.
Had as the Civil Sc-rvice now is, as ell
know, it has some men of tried integri
ty and proved ability. Suoh men. and
such men only, should be retained in
in oilice; but no man should be retain
ed in any consideration who has prosti
tuted his office to the pursoses ol parti
san intimidation or compulsion, or who
has furnished money to corrupt the
bctjons. This :s done and has been
division or misappropriation of the
funds for their support.
Likewise I regard the man who
would, arouse or foster sectional animos
ities and antagonisms among his coun
trymen as a dangerous enemy to bis
country. All the people must be made
to feel and know that once more there
is established a purpose and policy un
der which all citizenB of every condi
tion, raoe and color will be secure in
the enjoyment of whatever rights the
constitution and laws declare or recog
nize, and that in the controversies that
may arise, the government is not a
paitisan, but within its constitutional
authority the just and powerlul guardi
an of the rights and safety of all. The
strife between the sections and between
races will cease as soon as the power
for evil is taken away from a parly
that makes political gain out of scenes
of violence and bloodshed, and the con
stitutional authority is placed in the
nanas ot men whose political weuare
requires that peace and good order
shall be preserved everywhere.
HIS OPINION OF TILDEN.
It will be seen, gentlemen, that I am
in entire accord with the platform ot
the convention, by which I have been
nominated as a candidate tor tne omco
of Vice President of the Unit' d States,
Permit me in conclusion to express my
satisfaction at being associated with a
candidate lor the Presidency who is
first among his equals as a representa
tive ol tne spirit and of the achieve
ments of reform. In his official career,
as the executive oi the great State of
New York, he has in a comparatively
short period, reformed the public ser
vice and reduced the public burden so
us to have earned at once the grstitude
ot his State and the admiration of the
country. The people know him to be
thoroughly in earnest. He has shown
himseh to be possessed of powers and
qualities which fit him in an eminent
degree for the great work of reforma
tion which this country now needs
and if he shall be chosen by the people
to the high office of President ol the
United States, I believe that the dy of
his inaugurating will be the beuiunin).

No that the county and judicia
elections are over, w may begin a clear
er and more profit ib'e view of the work
that lies before us iu the poli'ical field
here in Tennessee. 1 here is nothing in
the net results of Thursday's elections to
dampen tne ardor or moderate the hopes
of Democrats and Conservatives for the
Htate and National Contests upon which
we are entering. On the contrary, being
now relieved of all disturbing local aoii
personal causes, we may the better con
suit as to the means of preserving party
unitv and securing Democratic succet
It is well for every Democrat lo real
ize the fact, at once, that the Republican
are hoping to regain control of the State
of Tennessee, at the .-November eiectiou
through the dissensious in the Democrat
ic ranks. An absolute "split'' is confi
dentlv looked for by them, and, should
this not foimally occur, they nevertheles
look for such disaffection, by reason ot
"disappointed views'' upon financial the
ories, as will enable tliem to rapture
either the Governorship, or the Jbeiis
lature.or both. These bones of the He
publicans, it must be confessel, hav
teen much encouraged by threatening
demonstrations within our party. It
well Known that upon the subject ot our
State finances the treatment of the pub
lic debt and the ra'e of taxation propt
to be adopted a diversity ot vieivs in
some instances, an absolute anlagoni.-m
of opinion has been developed, and tl
discussions of the subject have not al
ways been characterized, unfortunately
by a becoming temperance in language
In regard to Democratic doctrines, as
opposed to the principles aud practises
ot the Ueoublican party of to-day, we
believe there is no serious disagreement
amonir Tennessee Democrats. There
has been heard scarcely ft murmur
against the platform or the nominees of
the St. Louis Convention. Upon every
question involving a characteristic prin
cinle of the Democratic party, there is
now substancial unity among the Demo
crats of Tennessee. It is only upon mat
ters of State policy and concern, thatany
serious discord has been apprehended
But why may not Democrats diti'cr,
honestly and widely upon questions of
local policy, and vet not divide? When,
in the historv of parties in Tennessee
whs the mere rate ot taxation a 1'gun
always variable acccording to the public
condition and demands made a test
party fidelity? Who ever heard of forty
cent Whigs and twenty-ceut wings, or
fifty-cent Democrats and thirty-cent
Democrats, in the olden time, when both
pa; tie?, though differing as the poles :
to well-defined principles, were abl,
committed to the preservation ol the pul
lie faith and to the sroyernment of the
State upon 'he most economical ba:s

nate any fixed and permanent rate of
taxation an outright political absurdity
and require all Democratic opinion to
eo'tfoim to that standard, whether it be
sixty, fifty, forty, thirty, or twenty cents
on the hundred dollars. The expected
effort to do so, is tlie very Democratic
blunder to which the Republicans ore

There are many Democrats in Tennes
see who honestly think the present rate
of taxation is too high. Tho scarcity of
money, the shortness of crops and de
pression of trade, aided by the teachings
of some whose personal interests lay in
that direction, have induced many to re
gard a tax of forty cents on the hundred
donors as really oppressive. JJut what do
such men hope to gain by a rupture in
the Democratic ranks, for that reason?
Do thev suppose that, in any contingen-
cv. tlie taxes would be ugntenea uuaer a
Republican administration? Is not the
sad experience through which they pass
ed during the rule of that party in this
State enough to dispel any illusive hope
of "relief from that source? Taking

I he Republican party has been in

more cunning than he, deserves im

that the State should take no action that
could pos8iblvbe constructed as incipient
repudiation. At the same tune, we are
not the advocates, at thio time, of increas

Neither a sixty cent tax nor a twenty
cent tax will be accepted by the Demo

be expected, for one moment, that the
State Convention, next Wednesday, can
be harmonized upon either 'proposition.
There is a golden mean, however, upon
which all good Democrats for the fake ct j
the party and of the State, can, nnd j
