The Democracy has nominated Hon.
Horatio Seymour for Governor: lie ran
lor President in 108, and is an exceed
ingly able muii. It is believed by both
parties that the stare of New York will
decide the Pres'deiitiul contest hence
they have selected their ablest men
the Republicans E. I). Morgan and the
Democrats Horatio Seymour.
The State Executive Committee of the
Democratic party met at Nashville
on Thursday of last week. Hon. E. A.
James, of Chattanooga, was made State
Elector, in place of Gov. Harris, resign
ed. This is a wise selection. Mr. James
Las been working for the party for years,
und though often thrown overboard con
tinues to labor, without murmuring. He
will make a hot canvass. The following
roiuniittc for this Congressional District
was appointed; the selections are all
Wheeler, the Republican candidate for
Vice-President, is the author of the great
'Wheeler eoim.i utilise," by which the
members ol the Louisiana Legislature,
expelled by bayonet, were allowed to re
take their scuts on a pledge that the Leg

leavo him in oliiet; to manipulate the

Gen. George Maney, President of the
Tennessee and lVcifie Railroad, hna at

situation in an interview with a reporter
of theNashviile Rainier, from which the

a candijale for (Jovernor. The Raliucr

Radicals did net make a nomination for
Governor, was that they had the assur-

canvass, and they could support him. He
would no doubt s uit their purposes just
as well as one i.l their party, for he SHp
ported their "head devil,'' ( 1'ies't Grant)
in the canvass of lf-72; and now he gives
as a lame excuse ior 'so doing, (bidding
or Democratic m.'i s) that he could not
support Greeley; this is ;'too thin," aud if
ho was ho conscientious ho had better
not supported oiti ir one. Gou. Maney
would no doubt like to be Governor, aud
no would the nc-uro ?.!:igis'.rate ot this
district like to be Jiule of the Supreme
Court of Tenncj.sce, oi.e is just about s
proliable as the oii.er. 'lhe people of the
State know what Radical rule means, and
will not allow tlicir loved state to pass
into the bauds of that party, which is
buili upon corruption, und the cement
which keeps it together is the love of
spoils. Therefoie let no Democrat, be
deceieved by the syren song, or honeyed
words of any man that is not a Democrat.

JudseE 'l!. ErcCnd's frecrh at Talari
Uy invitation of the Tilden and Hen
ducks Club at Pulaski, the distinguished
Centlciniim w hose iiiiine Leads this arti-
ticle nddres.-od a largo audience of the
citizens of Giles County at that place on
the l'Jth of this month, on the Federal
politics of the country.
Judge Spoil'ord is a rcssident of Louis
iana, where he aoj'.iired the reputation of
being one of the lirt lawyers in the
South, and was In fore tho war elevated
to the Supreme bench of that Slate. Re
fore the war he mariied the accomplished
daughter of Thomas Martin, who is well
remembered throughout Tennessee, aud
6ince the death ot tli;.t pentleiuan, he Las
spent much of his time in Pulaaki, at
tending to the large estate left by Mr.
Martin, aud only practicing bis profes
sion in appealed cases pending in the
Supreme Courts of LoTiisiar.a and of the
United States. On the day above refer-
war of 1861, which culminated in the ac
complisbment of the whole purpose and
principles of the Republican party, name
ly: the freedom of the slave. The i aboli
tion of slavery being settled in 1865, the
principle was carried out, the object ati
tained, and there was no longer a neces
sity for the Republican 'party, hence as
the speaker remarked. "The Republi
can PARTY IS DEAD.''
He then proceeded to analyze and dis
sect the corrupt machinery, and the
mean and prostituted purposes of the
leaders ol the Republican party since
18C5; showing it to be a party without
principle, an organization without an
aim, a mere band of cormorants feeding
upon the vitals of the government, with
no other object, than to feed their own
avarice and fill their own coffers with
bribes and spoils, corrupt speculations
and wholesale barter of the people's cou
dence. The speaker then, with a force and in
a manner inimitable, proceeded to run i
over the electoral votes of the States,
and giving his conjectures as to the re
sult in November. After enumerating
others he came to Missouri, Kentucky,
West Virginia and Maryland. He spoke
of their geographical!position being be
tween the contending sections daring the
war; their sons in both armies, their love
for both people, but for all that, their
firm adhesion to the National Govern
ment in the hour of her peril. He show
ed how these states, in no condition to be
aroused by passion and prejudice, calm
and deliberate judges between their
brothers of the North and of the South,
the four great umpires between the Ret
publican and Democratic parties, would
march up in solid column in November
and render a dispassionate verdict for
Democracy, insuring the election of Til
den and Hendricks.
Judge Spofford, in one portion of bis
speech, traced in true and strong terms
the political career of Ex-Attorney Gen-,
eral Williams from his petty Judgeship
in Oregan, led by the apron strings of a
divorced woman from obscurity to be
made the tool of the President of the
United States in an unholy crusade
against the Southern people. He gave a
full history of the famous landaulet,
the fashionable requirement of Mrs. Wil
liams, and the branding iron upon the
ciieek ot Williams for all time to come,
and of the surprise of the American peo
ple, expecting to see their President cen
sure a member of his Cabinet for this act
of official embezzlement, when io I
and behold, Ulysses dealt out the chas
tsement in a nomination of Williams to
be Chief Justice of the Bcprhme Covht
of the United States; the place occu
pied by a Marshall, a Taney, and a Chase.
This is but a faint idea of a few of the
points in this great speech, which should
be printed and circulated throughout the
A great battle is soon to be fought
iu Indiana; one foreshadowing and influ
encing the result in November next.
Perhaps not a single Southern Statesman
will enter that contest." Cannot Judge
Spofford, who is the peer of any man in
the Republican party, bo induced to rep
resent us in Indiana?
Bepublicaa State Convention.
The Republicans of the State held a
State Convention on Thursday of last
week, at Nashville, for the purpose of
nominating a candidate for Governor
J. II. Morris, or this Congressional Dis-.
trict, was one of the committee on Cre
dentials. A lengthy and virulent speech
from Henry S. Foote, venerable only in
years, was given; in which he abused
Democracy and Gov. Tilden. Governor
Brownlow was also heard from, by letter.
Maury County was allowed 13 votes.
Archie Hughes, Jr., was one of the Vice
Presidents of the meeting. Rev. Mr.
Weir, colored, of Mt. Pleasant, was made
Assistant Secretary. 1 he Convention
voted against making a nomination for
(Jovernor, the vote standing, 129 tor, and
221 against. The principal managers
aud leaders of the Convention teem to
have been old Foote and Emerson Ether
idge, both renegade Democrats, who l-ft
the Democratic party because they
couldn't get oflice in it. Foote and A.
U. Pettibone were made Electors for the
Stute at Large, and A. M. Hughes, Jr.,
Elector for the 7th Congressional Dis
trict. One of the resolutions denounces
the dog law; W.,P. Jones thought it was
a good law; II. L. Gosling, of Bedford,
(Hilly ' Whitthorne's friend) said he
agreed with Ktheridge on this subject.
Etberidge had said: "As between dogs
and sheep, he was for the dog law; but as
between dogs and Democrats, he was for
the dogs." This beautiful sentiment was
applauded. It is very natural that a
scurvy aud mangy politician like Ether
iilgc should prefer the company of dogs
to gentlemen, and also highly proper
that Gosling should be goose enough to
hive a similarly depraved taste.

the Convention until very late, and the
nomination quickly ensued. In obedi

ed in this Convention, we hoist his name
at our masthead for the position, and
shall give him our earnest and honest

0t73 NEW YOBS 1ETTEB.
- -New York Aug. 25.
Things are commencing to assume a
definite shape now in this State, The
Republican Convention has been, held,
and Conkllng baa been laid ont as Blaine
was at Cincinnati. He baa been
slaughtered by the most ruthless oppo
sition that ever divided a party. And
now his friends will be expected to
come and cry "hurrah," and work hard
for the success ot his murderers, as
Blaine's friends are asked to do in the
Maine canvass. Cornell looks blue, and
does not seem at all inclined to come in
to the new harness, but be will have to
do it, and all his friends as well. It
they will not come willingly, they will
be whipped into obedience.
Zacu Chandler decieed tbat Cornell
would not do for the candidate, and as
it was by his will that a change was
made, he will see to it that the disaffec
ted fall again in line.
Ex- Governor Morgan will certainly
make as determined a fight as any one
that could have been named, but be
stands no chance whatever of being the
successor of Governor Tilden. He may
spend his money as lavishly as he
pleases; he will not be able to draw
aside one soldier from the Democratic
Wm. M. Evarta would have had more
weight with the Independent voter,
but his nomintlon would have been a
rebuke to the Great method of adminis
tering the government, and just now
again, Grant and Qrantism are every
thing and must not be interfered
Morgan will make as good a fight as
any one that the Republicans could
have adopted, but no person nominated
and supported by the authors of all the
country's woes and misfortunes could
by any means be forced upon the poo-,
pie of New York as their Governor.
Thev elected Gov. Tilden by a large ma
jority, and they now rally to his sup
port as a canaiaate ior me xresiaency
They have an intimate knowledge of
his character and bis work, and thev
ar e proud of the one and benefited by
.They consider him a man who will
confer honor upon the highest office
that the country has to bestow, and they
know that in that office he will bo ad
minister the government that the en
tire nation will be indebted to him for
its release from oppression and distress.
They do not intend tbat the work which
he has been doing here shall he robbed
of any of its effects by a man who has
no sympathy with them, or anything
that shall be done for their advantage.
They intend that Tilden Bhall be Pres
ident ot the United States, and that bis
place iu this state shall be filled by one
who will carry forward the work tbat
he has commenced, and will encourage
and strengthen him in .accomplishing
the gigantic work which lies before him
Very encouraging accounts are still
continually received from all parts, as
to the condition of the National canvass.
There can be no doubt whatever that the
exposures ol the corruptions of the par
ly at vvasningiou, anu mo worn 01 toe
Democratic House have opened the
people's eyes to the danger ot continu
ing the present administration, and to
the benefits that will be derived from
Democratic rule. They view with very
ureut rtititrust the now affiliation of
;rantwith the Republican caniidate
There can be no doubt, that he was quite
disgusted with his old friends when
he louud it impossible that he should
receive the nomination for a third term,
aud it looked lor a short time as if he
hud thrown overboard all considera
tiona for the success of the party.
Now, he has been brought . round.
lie hs issued his military order, and is
umg all his strength and influence to
elect Hayes. He is not the man to do
this without having made, with the
managers, a bargain where by he is to
receive an equivalent tor his services,
The people are anxiously asking what
that equivaleut is. A little thought
will enable us to see very plainly what
it is. We have only to study tno char
acter of Grant not make the mistake of
estimating him a fool and the n ature
of his anabition, to see what to him
would be a recompense tor his work
It behooves us, if we value our freedom,
to take care that there be no opportu
nity for currying out the contra . If
Hares be elected we may prepare our
selves lor the vtorst evils that can be
fall a people.
In a young country, with infinite re
sources to develop, everything that
tends to check the flow to its shoreB of
the surplus population of older and
overstocked territories is an injury,
While most other of the more recently
Bottled portions ot the earth, are receiv
ine large accessions to the nnmbfr ol
their inhabitants, we are in our acces
sion falling very far short of what was
formerly the case.
The iniquities of the Government are
producing evil effects in each branch of
the national industries. Thousands up
on thousands of men are unemployed,
in a country which could, under proper
management, furnish occupation to
millions more than all the people that
it contains. With all the fields of labor
waiting lor cultivation, we are actually
sending numbers away from our shores
to Beek their living in other lands.
Kurely if the people so resolve they can
alter this. It is the work of a corrupt
Administration. With its removal
will be cured the grievous ills which

THE LIBERALS AT SARATOGA,
A yery good indication of the way in
which the people generally are deter
mined to take matters in their own

was given by the Liberal Republicans
at Saratoga. John Cochrane, not having
been made enough of by the Democrats,
has gone back to the Republican fold,
and he ordered up nis follows to be den
livered to the party at Saratoga. They
came as he requested, and then actually
held a meting at which he was not pres
ent, passed resolutions, indorsing the
acts of Governor Tilden, and pledging
their support to his canvass lor the
Presidency, and even went so far as to
"resolve" that "the assembly now in

him to be a very nice and polite and ex

Republican voter who expects him to bo
strong enough, if he should be elected
President, to control the elements that

do nothing of the sort. The Mortons,
