"The thanks of the Nation are due to
Congressman VVhitthorne, of Tennessee,
Chairman of the Naval Committee," is
the way the Brooklyn Eagle, a leading
paper of the North, speaks of oar distin
guished Congressman, "for the great
skill, patience, industry and impartiality
with which he has conducted the investi
gatioDs of his very able committee into
the naval frauds of the Government.''
Now, wouldn't it be a shame to keep
such a man at home?
The Brooklyn Eagle is worthy of the
proud name of the emblem bird when it
paj s this noble compliment to the "im
mortal W. C. Whitthorne:''' "He HAS
earned honor in history, for as
lono as this land shall have a
History, on account of' the cour
AGE, TENACITY, AND VIVID INTELLI
GENCE WITH WHICH HE HAS REPELL
ED ALIKE THE THREATS AND BLANK
DISHMENTS OF ENTRENCHED RINGS,
WHICH, WITH THEIR MEN AND METHODS,
HE HAS PUT IS THE PILLORY OF CONS
DEMNATION FORBVBR." When straa
gers, and his late enemies, speak thus of
our Congressman, what would the world
think of the 7th Congressional District if
it were to keep him out of public life ?
Thanks of The Nation Cue Gen. WUV-

METHODISM NOBTH AND SOUTH.
Earia of Fraternal Ealatloni Between the
Cape May. August 23d. The Boards
of Commissioners appointed by the Meth
odist Episcopal Charch and the Methodist
Episcopal Church South, to remove all
obstacles to fraternity between the two
churches, have been in session here for
the last ten days. Tkey concluded their
labors this evening and issued an address
to the bishoDS. ministers and members of
the Methodist Episcopal Church and of
the Methodist Episcopal Church, South,
in which tbev say:
You will be rejoiced to learn that, after
having given due attention to all the
questions in iraternity between the two
great branches of Episcopal Methodism
in the United States, we have arrived at a
settlement of every matter anecting us,
we suppose, upon the principles of a last
ing and cordial adjustment. We have
tbe satisfaction to declare that our aspi
rations for harmony of views in vital
points have been realized. By Divine
guidance, as we trust, we have been able,
after a frank interchange of views and
prayerful endeavors, to harmonize all dif
ferences and to arrive at the desired con
summation of unanimous agreement of
At the beginning of our conversation,
one great Question seemed to overshadow
all others. It concerns the relation of
the two Churches to each other, and to
Episcopal Methodism. To this import
ant matter our most earnest thought and
prayerful deliberations were first direct
cd, and the result attained occasioned the
interchange of rejoicing congratulations
between the members of the commission.
We adopted without a dissenting voice the
following declaration and basis of frater
nity: As to the status of the Methodist Epis
copal Church, and of the Methodist Epis
copal Church, and their co-ordinate re
lation as legitimate branches of Episco
pal Methodism, eoch of the said Church
es is a legitimate branch of Episcopal
Methodism in the United States, having
a common origin in the Methodist Epis
copal Church organized in 1784. Since
the organization of the Methodist Epis
copal Church, South, was consummated
in 1845 by the voluntary exercise of the
right of the Southern annual conferences,
ministers and members to adhere to that
convention, it has been an Evangelical
Church, reared on scriptural foundations,
and her ministers and members, with
those of the Methodist Episcopal Church,
have constituted the Methodist family,
though in distinct Ecclesiastical connect
It was next incumbent on us to con
aider the question concerning conflicting
claims to Church property, and some
special cases that could not convenient
ly be referred to tbe operation of general
rule. There two principal questions to
be considered with regard to Church
property in dispute between the local sec
tions of the two Church:
First As to the legal ownership of the
Hocond As to whether it will consist
with strict equity or promote Christian
harmony or the cause of religion to dis
possess these societies now usiDg Church
property which was originally intended
tor their use and occupancy, and of
which they have acquired possession,
though they may have lost the legal tide
to it by their transfer from one Church to
We have considered the papers in all
cases that have been brought to our no
tice. These arose in the following States:
Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Ten
nessee, Louisiana, North Carolina and
South Carolina. In respect of some of
thoses cases we have given particular di
rections; but for all other cases the Joint
Commission unanimously adopted the
following rules of adjustment of adverse
claims to Church property:
Rule 1 In cases not adjudicated by
the Joint Commission, any society of the
Church, constituted according to its dis-
cipline, now occupying Church property,
shall remain in possession thereof.provid
ed that where there is now in the place a
society of more members attached to the
Church, and which has hitherto claimed
the use of the property, the latter shall
be entitled to possession.
Rule 2 For as much as we have no
power to annul decisions respecting
C 'hurch property made by . the State
court, the Joint Commission ordain in
first Cases in which inch a decision
has been made, or in which there exists
an agreement, the same shall be carried
out in good faith.
Second In communities where there
are two societies, one belonging to the
Methodist Eoisconal Chnrch. and the
other to the Methodist Episcopal Church,
South," which nave adveisely claimed
church property, it is recommended that
without delay they amicably compose
their differences, irrespective of the strict
legal title, and settle the same according
to Christian principles of the equities - of
the particular case, and so far as practit
cable to the principle of a foregoing rule.
.Hut u such settlement cannot be speed
ily made, then the question shall be re
ferred for equitable decision to three ar
bitrators, one to be chosen by each claim
ant from their respective societies, and
the two thus chosen select a third person
not connected with either of said Church
es, and the decision of any two of them
shall be final.
Third In communities in which there
is but one society, rule first shall be faith
fully observed in the interests of peace
Rule 3. Whenever necessary to carry
a foregoing rule into effect, the legal title
to Church property shall be accordingly
Rule 4. These rules shall take effect
In order to further promote the peaces
ful results attempted by this Joint Com
mission, and to remove as far as may be
all occasion, and especially to forestall
all further occasion for hostility between
the two Churches, we recommend to the
members of both, as a wise rule of settles
ment where property is in contest and
one or both are weak, that they compose
their differences by uniting in the same
communion, and in all cases that the
ministers and members recognize each
other in all relations of fraternity, and as
possessed ot ecleBiastical rights and privt
lieges of equal dignity and validity.
They should each receive from the other
ministers and members in good standing
with the same alacrity and credit as if
coming from their own Church; and withs
out interference with each other s institu
tions or missions, they should neverthe
less co-operate in all Christian enter
It is not to be supposed, in respect of
some matters of mere opinion, that all
ministers and members in the Churches
will be in accord; but we trust and be
lieve that a spint of fellowship and mu
tual regard will pervade the reconciled
ranks of the entire ministry and member
ship of both Churches; we Selieve also
that their supreme allegiance to the
cause of the Great Master will triumph
over all variation of personal sentiments.
and will so exalt the claims of brotherly
affection that from this auspicious hour a
new epoch in Methodism will begin its
brighter history, so that we shall know no
unfraternal Methodism in the United
States, or even in the wide world.
Our Candidate for Congress.
It is now generally known, we presume.
that Gen. W. C. Whitthorne, of Maury
county, was re-nominated by the conven
tion at Lawrenceburg as the Democratic
candidate for Congress, in this district
While Gen. Whitthorne was not tVe
choice of the Giles delegation, we rejoice
in the belief that thre is a universal and
hearty acquiescence in the nomination of
the Democrats and mends ot relorm in
this county. Our delegates stood solidly
for Judge Jones as long as there seemed
to be any hope of success. Among the
several distinguished and popular gentle
men brought before the convention by
their mends, it was really hard to choose,
as was evidenced by the great number oi
ballotings and the very lengthy session of
that body. Judge Jones friends leel
sorely disappointed, but we are glad to
know that they, will do good work for
Gen. Whitthorne, which they would have
experienced so much pleasure and pride
in doing for Giles' favorite had he re
ceived the nomination. Judge Jones de
sires and expects them to do so, and will
himself be an active laborer in Gen.
No local preference of whatever na
ture, in any part of this Congressional
district, can now produce any dissatis
faction with the nomination of General
Whitthorne. We are all proud of him.
lie has served his constituency and his
country faithfully and efficiently. As
Chairman of the Committee on Naval
Affairs he made a national reputation
not uneviable by any statesman in the
South. No man ever did his work bet
ter. He was convinced of the righteous
ness of his task, and did not shrink from
the full discharge of what he conceived
to be his duty. Edmund Burke was not
more in earnest when he stood up in the
British Parliament and criticised with
severe judgment, the mismanagement of
the anairs ot his nation than lien. Whit
thorne, was determined when striking the
enemies of good government at home and
rooting out bribery and corruption. He
is always earnest and tenacious, and is
never satisfied, never gives up, until his
work is fully completed. There is no se
cret to the fulness of his success in his
undertakings. It is plainly told in the
spirit of determination which he always
manifests. Nor is there any secret to
the fact his friends ever cling to him. It
is revealed in the devotion with which he
serves them. But no word of ours could
add to his exalted reputation as a public
Gen. Whitthorne's remarks before the
Central Tilden and Hendricks Club, of
Nashville a few evenings since, which
we reproduce in this number of tbe ClTl
ZEN, can hardly fail to strike every im
partial reader with admiration for the
man. They abound in good senti
ments and sound sense, and show him to
be the possessor, in an eminent degree, ot
that peculiar feeling which recognizes the
universal brotherhood of man. They are
characteristic of the statesman whose
heart is true, and whose brain is equal to
its warmest and most generous impulses.

ANOTHER LETTER UNFINISHED "THE
ONLY REMEDY.' '
A dispatch from Columbus, O., to the
New York Times having admitted the
authenticity of the Kilpatrick letter, its
republication in the columns of Thi
World, with the comments of the Indian
napolis Sentinel, will not be lost space.
The Sentinel, it will be remembered, first
published the letter.
Indianapolis Sentinel, August 22:
On yesterday General Kilpatrick, at pres
ent itinerating the State in the carmine
interests of Morton, Harrison & Co., left
in the reading-room of the Grand Hotel
a letter addressed to Gov. Hayes, of
Ohio, in which Kilpatrick furnishes Gov.
Hayes with what he terms "reliable in
formation" of the condition of the cans
vass in this Stare. We below give our
readers the text of General Kilpatrick' s
mournful story,adding that its genuineness
is incontestable, and it will be in vain
that the Republican press may seek to
Indianapolis, August, 21, 1876. J
Dear Sir: I have now finished a
tour of six counties in Indiana, and feel
ing that any reliable information from
I this State will interest you I write.
In the hrst place the canvass is well
conducted, the people are enthusiastic
and determined, and the old war spirit
thoroughly aroused, and if it were not for
one thing we could rest certain of victo
ry in October. There is an Independent
I party in this State, confined, it is true,
to a few counties, but formidable, and it
will deteat General Harrison. Ihere is
but one way to overcome this move
ment. The leaders ot the Independents
are poor, needy and in debt. They must
be lectured to; documents be placed in
their hands that they may be convinced
of their folly.
A blood shirt campaign with money,
and Indiana is safe I A financial cam
paign and no money, and we are beaten.
The National Committee has done
nothing for Indiana. Alone they are
fighting this battle, and bravely; but un
less the National Committee wakes up
and does its duty to you, to the party and
the country, defeat is certain in October.
I never m all my life felt so certain
that I was doing my duty as in this con
test, and my desire for success, my dear
sir, is my only excuse for writing you.
To R. B. Hayes, Governor, Ac.
comments of the "sentinel."
The letter which we publish elsewhere
in the Sentinel this morning from Gener
al J. Kilpatrick, the distinguished Repub'
lican orator sent out by the Republican
National Commit ee to this State from
New! fork, to Governor Hayes, the Re
publican candidate for tbe Presidency, is
a document so characteristic, and so
clearly develops the rottenness of the Re
publican party, that its publication to the
world is deemed a plain duty that no pa
triotic citizen should shrink from. It de
velops several facts disgraceful ia the
extreme to the leaders of the party. Gov.
General Kilpatrick's letter to Govern
or Hayes shows that the Radical power
effort is to be made to defraud the will of
the people by corrupt means.
It shows the estimation in which the
greenback men are held by the Republi
can party, "poor bankrupt set," that can
be bought with money and changed by ly
ing Republican documents.
It shows that Governor Hayes, the
spotless, incorruptible statesman, who is
the candidate of the Republican party,
can be approached in a familiar way with
It shows that General Harrison is to se
cure an election by the use of money.
General Kilpatrick is one of the leaders
of the ring, and is constrained to tell
Hayes how tbe Republican National
Committee, ia not furnishing money, is
neglecting the opportunity to carry the
It shows that the lowest political de
bauchery is to be used to carry the State
of Indiana for Harrison. General Kil
patrick has been in close commuion with
the Central Committee here. He is
working at their bidding, and, according
to the Journal, he is doing; effective
work. The Journal, cn his arrival in the
city, gave him the fullest endorsement.
He therefore represents the views of the
The letter further shows that two of the
basest means used by the Republicans in
carrying the elections, the bloody
shirt and money, are the only means
that can save the State. The bloody
shirt argument has been used effectually
by General Kilpatrick, and his friends
say that he is accomplishing wonders, as
witness the following from the Journal:
Ladies, citizens and the Ueneral's old
comrades vied with each other in giving
him a patriot's welcome. To describe the
Oeueral's speech would be a useless task: it
must be heard to be appreciated. It will be
sufficient to say that il was one of the most
effective, eloquent campaign speeches ever
delivered In this town, and has done ns
great good. It has aroused again the old
spirit of '64 and '68. Such cheers as went up
from the vast audience for Harrison ana
Hayes and Kilpatrick, as the g.Ulant soldier
and brilliant orator sat down, were never
heard before In Bedford.
But General Kilpatrick turns away
mournfully from the ovation, and re-
Eorts from here at headquarters to Hayes
imself, after seeing the central commit
tee, that war speeches alone will not do,
but that "bloody shirt and money" would
do the work. War speeches tor Demo
crat soldiers, we presume, and money to
purchase the ''poor bankrupt greenback
ers." Citizens of Indiana, voters of the proud
old Hoosier State, can the corrupt means
be used by the Radical party by yon to
support a man who is acknowledged to be
defeated? Can you give your support to
a Presidential candidate who can be fa
miliarly addressed by his friends with
such, propositions? Independents of In
diana, you who have been battling
against the money power, are willing for
the Republican ring-masters to buy your
leaders and sell your "poverty'' for bo
If anything more insulting has ever
been conceived in the management of a
political party we have yet to see it
This letter places Governor Hayes ia a
new light; it snatches away that spotless
robe in which .his friends have clothed
him, and placss him at once on the level
of the low political ring that has made
General Grant's administration a stench
and a by-word of reproach. It presents
General Harrison in a new light as a
candidate for m place to be bought with
money. It places the Radical party in
tbe disgraceful position of wailing sup
pliants, begging for money to help out
their bloody-shirt policy. It ought to de
feat and politicaly damn the whole crew.
Let the people read and ponder.
Mr. Tilden and the Rochester Convention
INew York Sun.
Of all the array of baseless charges
against Mr. Tilden, the most baseless is
the allegation that, at the famous Roches
ter Convention of October, 1871, he was
so closely associated with the Tweed
King, and that the democratic party of
New York was so dependent upon the
support ot Tweed and his followers that
Mr. Tilden. then chairman of the Demo
cratic State Committee, did not dare to
protest against tbe admission to that
Convention ot tne iweea Aammany dele.
gation from this city. This charge is 80
constantly harped upon by Republican
newspapers iu the State, that it is possi
ble somebody outside of New York may
believe it; and yet, to those who know
how utterly false it is, it seems preposter
ous and even ridiculous.
The writer of this article was at the
Rochester Convention. For the purpose
of forwarding to the Sun impartial res
ports of its doings, we not only carefully
watched its proceedings, but repeatedly
conterred with the leaders of all the fac
tions represented there from the begin
ning to the end of the straggle we from
time to time gathered our facts from Gov.
Seymour, Chief Justice Church, Mr. Ker
nan, Mr. Cassidy, then of the Argus,
and especially from Mr. Tilden, Chair
man ot the Committee, who spoke for the
rural Democrats; and from Mr. Charles
G. Cornell, Tom Fields, Tom Coman,
and Tweed himself, who spoke for the
Tammany delegates; and from Mr. Ot
tendorfer, Mr. Wickham, now Mayor,
and Mr. A. R. Lawrence, now Judge of
the Supreme Court, who spoke for the
delegates of the Reform or Apollo Hall
There was no dispute about the two
propositions, that when viewed from a
party standpoint, the Tammany delegates
were the regular representatives of the
party in the city, while on the other hand
the Apollo Hall delegates had not the
slightest claims to regularity. And it
should be borne in mind that, because of
the then recent exposures in the city,
Tweed, Sweeny, Connolly, and others of
their class, were left off the Tammany
delegation, and that there was no man
upon it who was then known to be involv
ed in the frauds of the Tammany Ring.
Measured by the standards that cou
trol political organizations, the refusal to
admit the Tammany Hall delegates to
the State Convention would be a high
handed act, while the admission of the
Apollo Hall delegates would be a revo
lutionary proceeding. Nevertheless,
because of the corrupt taint upon the
garments of the Tammany organization,
and of the purity of purpose and the re
formatory spirit which then controlled
Apollo Hall, it is within our own per
sonal knowledge that for two days previ
ous to the meeting of the Rochester Con
vention and all through its proceedings
until the questions were settled, it was
the fixed intention of Mr. Tilden to ex
clude the Tammany Hall delegation from
the Convention and bring the Apollo
Hall delegation into it, if he could. And
we also know that it was the opinion oi
the chiefs of the factions then at Roches
ter as, for example, Gov. Seymour,
Mayor Wickham, and William M.'Tweed
that Mr. Tilden did more than any
other twenty men to keep the Tammany
delegates out. In a conversation with
Tweed at Rochester after the battle was
over, he stated that his defeat was mainly
due to the exertions of Mr. Tilden, and
particularly to his influence with Sey
mour, Church, Kernan, and Cassidy.
As to the failure to carry in the Re
form delegates, about which a good deal
of nonsense has been 6hed abroad, it is
within eur own knowledge that Mr. Til
den did his best for Apollo HalL But
there being no show of regularity in their
case, ue couia not carry witn mm some
ot tbe powerful names who followed his
lead in the struggle against Tammany;
and therefore he failed in this part
ot t he contest a result at which he, on
the spot, expressed both disappoiutment
We advise the New York Republicans
to stop traducing Gov. Tilden in regard
to the Rochester Convention. His spirit
ed and elevated conduct in that emer
gency is too well known in this State for
any profit to come to Hayes from that
line of attack.
