FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1876.
"The thanks of the Nation are due to
Congressman Whitthorne, of Tennessee,
Chairman of the Naval Committee," ia
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 investU
gations 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
pats this noble compliment to the "
mortal W. C. Whitthorne:"' "He HAS
EARNED HONOR IN HlSTOKY, FOR A3
lono as this land shall have a
History, on accoukt of the cotjrs
AGE, TENACITY, AND VIVID INTELLI
GENCE WITH WHICH HE HAS REPELL
ED ALIKE THE THREATS AND BLANs
DISHMENTS OP ENTRENCHED RINGS,
WHICH, WITH THEIR MEN AND METHODS,
HE HAS PUT IN THE PILLORY OF CONS
DEMNATION FOREVER." When stran
gers, and his late enemies, speak thus of
our Congressman, what would the world
think of the 7th Congressional District if
it were to keepiim out of public life.

JoiirDHl. Indianapolis, Aug. 29. The great
campaign tor l7b is now fairly under
way in this state, and it is getting warm
er every day. In several districts in the
central and northern parts of tie
Htatethe feeling is already high,
and there's muoh bad blood explo
ited between the partisans on both sides.
Wherever you hnd a close district or
county there will be found the most bit
ter feeling. From the signs of the times,
the political struggle in this city and dis
trict will be one of the warmest that have
ever taken place. 1 have been out among
the Democrats of Indianapolis for the
last two days. I have attended several
ward meetings, conversed with those pres
ent, watched them in their campaign work,
and I am satisfied with my observation,
J bey mean business this time, and are
determined to wipe out the defeat of la-t
spring, which they attribute to an untor
tunate blunder and the open frauds prac
ticed by the negro repeaters. I think I
can discover a firm and resolute deter
mination on the pait of the Democrats of
this city to protect their ballot-boxes in
October, and not allow them to be
STUFFED WITH FRAUDULENT NEURO
It I bid mistaken in these conclusions
about the Democracy at the capital, they
talk one way and do another. If they
promise to stand by and see a few
hundred negroes with bad white men take
possession of the polls as they did last
fepring, then they never deserve to win a
victory, and are unworthy to be called
lrcemen. Hut 1 do not think they in
tend to be "run over" at this election and
I will not be surprised if the Indianapo
lis district goes Democratic.
The contest between Franklin Landers,
Democrat, and John Hanna, Republican,
is a warm and close one. I he Jndepend
ents have "My plan, Buchanan,' also in
the field for Congress, but it looks now
like Landers will come in atop of the
death, lie is personally popular, and
the poor people here believe that he is
the best man for their interests.
Everything I can learn from all parts
of the State is encouraging. The Demo
cratic speakers most everywhere are met
with large crowds, and in some cases the
meetings appear more like an ovation
than a simple gathering.
THE BRILLIANT VOORHBES,
is overwhelmed by people and enthusi
asm wherever he goes. Think of it, and
I do not exaggerate, on Friday he spoke
to ten thousand people at buluvan; Sat
urday he addressed fullv twelve thousand
at Columbus and yesterday another gath
ering of ten thousand greeted him at
r rutiktort. from the south to the cens
tral and north parts of the Htate thousands
of people flock to hear him. He is do
ing great work. His speeches are effec
tive because be talks earnestly to the
people, tells them their wants and wha
tbey must do to be saved. They listen
and contide in him and be does not
speak in vain. The speech of
HON. GEORGE W. JULIAN
in this cuy, nauiraay nigm, nas baa a
good eft'ert. The Republicans are very
angry at Julian, as plainly shown by the
violent abuse they are heaping on him
The Indianapolis Journal of yesterday,
howls with rage and slops over with its
abuse of Mr. Julian. In the meantime
Mr. Julian is making arrangements to
stump the entire State, and the Radicals
will wither under the blows he will give
them. He will get in sledge-hammer
strokes upon the corruption in the Ads
Gov. Hendricks will make bis first
speech of the campaign at Shelbyville
Saturday. It will be a monster meeting,
and the speech of Mr. Hendricks is ea
gerly looked for. Hon. John II. Farns
worth, of Illinois, is drawing large crowds
wherever he speaks. Senator McDon
ald speaks to-night, and from thereon un
til the close of the campaign.
HERE IS YOUR "COPPERHEADS'" AND
I am forcibly struck with the names of
the distinguished gentlemen who are mak
ing speeches in this State, not tor the
Democratic party, but for Tilden and
honest government. Head after me, Mr,
Republican, and learn where some of
your great men are and what they are do
ing. Here is James K. Doolittle, of Wis
consin, the pride of that State, who
served in the United (States Senate for
eighteen years as a Republican, and sacs
nficed his seat rather than sustain
Grantism; a man who stood by the lie
Jiublicau party during the war, and ouly
eft it when he discovered that it was run
in the interest of rings and stock-jobbers.
Next is Lyman Trumbull, of Illinois, one
of the ablest Republicans that ever occus
pied a soat in the United Htates Senate,
where he sat eighteen years; he, too, left
the Republican parly on account of its
corruption. Then comes Senator Thorns
as V. Tipton, of Nebraska, who sacri
ficed his seat in the I'nitod States Senate
because he would not bend the knee to
Radicalism.. And (len. James Shields,
of Miss4i, -ex-United States senator
from Ilunois, and ex-United States sena-
(or from Minnesota, a brigadier general
in the late war. who whinned Stonewall
Jackson at Winchester, elected to Con
eress from the Kansas City district in
1866 by 8,000 majority, but swindled out
of his seat by a drunken Secretary of
State, who threw out the vote of two
counties, which elected Van Horn. Oen.
Shields, who led a brigade under Gen.
Scott in the Mexican war, and at the bat
tle of Cerro Gordo led his brigade along
the banks of the Plon del Vo, came oat
at the foot of the mountains of Cerro
Gordo, made a gallant charge on the
Mexicans, was shot through the lungs,
and carried off the field for dead he,
too, has left the Radical party and its
corrupt teachings. Hon. John F. Farns
worth, of Illinois, the old, true and tried
Free8oiIer, who helped the Republican
party in power, served sixteen years in
Congress as a Republican, ana elected
last by a majority of 14,000 sacrificed it
all to take position for the people against !
the plunderers. Gov. Austin TBlair who I
was the great war governor of
and contributed men and money for the
prosecution of the war for the Union, is
also fighting for reform. After the war
Gov. Blair was elected to Congress by
the Republicans by an immense majority.
Governor Andrew G. Curtin, the Republi
can governor of Pennsylvania, during the
war: Gen. Franz Sigel, who led his troops
m the thickest of the fight for the preser
vation of the Union: Chas. Frncis
Adams, grandson of the second president
of the (j nited States, and son ot the sixth
president f the United States, ex-minister
to court of St. James; our own great
statesman, George W. Julian, the Free
soil candidate for vice-president in 1852
(Hale and Julian), one of the lathers of
the Republican party, who served ten
years in Congress from a strong Repub
lican district, the author of the home
stead act, which has given thousands of
people homes, and the acknowledged
head of the Republican party of Indiana
for twenty years; Judge David 8. Good
ings, who was the Lincoln elector for the
State at large in 1864, and who did more
than any one man to carry the State for
Lincoln that year, ex-United States mar
shall for the District of Columbia, elect
ed to Congress in 1870, and swindled out
of his seat by fraud in counting the elect
The above gentlemen are in the State
or will-be by the first of next week, tell
ing the people facts, and in favor of the
election of Samuel J. Tilden, Thomas A.
Hendricks and Uncle Jimmy Williams.
These are the kind of men the makers
of the Republican party that renegade
Democrats liks Oliver . P. . Morton de
nounce as copperheads and secessionists.
The people will judge of their loyalty
and, if I am not mistaken, their judg
ment will be against the bloody-shirt sen
THE REPUBLICAN STUMPERS.
On the other hand the Republicans
have no known or leading men in the
Republican party of the country making
speeches in the State. That is, they
have not, with a very few exceptions, any
men stumping the State who can com
pare with the above-named gentlemen.
Here and there you will see the name of
a Republican advertised to speak for
Grant who has done some fighting and
held some position of influence in the
Republican party; but it is a very rare
case. They have been singularly unfor
tunate in the selection of their speakers.
It seems that the Central Committee
have acted with no discretions whatever,
and were glad to get any one they could
to go out in the State and bellow for the
dying cause and ware the bloody shirt.
Such fellows as O'Conner, of Iowa; Lee,
of New York or Connecticut, formerly of
Wyoming Territory; Hayes, of New
York, and Bee Nabers, of Mississippi,
have made Democratic votes wherever
they have spoken. And then there is
that sweet pink and incorruptible pa
triot, Gen. Jud. Kilpatrick. lie is a nice
bird to be traveling over the State telling
honest people how to vote. The Repub
lican Central Committee has not with
drawn his appointments. They dare not
do it, for the simple reason that he was
in consultation with the committee half
an hour before he wrote his famous
bloody-shirt and money letter, and the
committee advised him to do it. So it is
sink or swim with Kilpatrick, and it will
AN ABUSIVE CANDIDATE.
The most abusive Republican speaker
in the State is Col. R. S. Robertson, the
Republican candidate for lieutenant gov
ernor. His speeches are made up of
abuse against Democrats, jeers and
scoffs at the plain, honest ways and aim
plicity of manners of Uncle jimmy Wil
liams, and gross and knowing misrepre
sentations ot the affairs of the State un
der Democratic administration. At Jef
fersonville aud at Salem he made false
statements regarding the votes of Uncle
Jimmy Williams in the Senate and of
the expenditures of the State. Several
times has Colonel Robertson been cor
rected in his statements, and the facts
told him, but he keeps right on regardless
of honor and decency. ihe people oi
Fort Wayne will step on him when he
goes up there, and it will serve him right
THE "LIVING ISSUE" OF THE REPUB
But, then, what is the use ot talking
about Robertson, when the others are just
as bad, if not worse, in their abuse of Mr.
Tilden? They can not find hard words
enough to say about Mr. Tilden or Mr.
Hendricks, either. All sorts of lying
charges are Bent broadcast over the State
daily about these two distinguished gen
tlemen. Some of the Republicans go so
far as to tell their neighbors confidential
ly 'that iildenis Boss Iweed in dis
guise, and that Iitden " got all the mon
ey Tweed made;'' that Tilden "loaned the
South $5,000,000 during the war," and
the lord only knows what else they do not
hatch up and send out. Men whom you
would suppose had some sense are going
around in the State telling some of the
silliest and most absurb stories you could
imagine. Such as these: That it Tilden
is elected there will be another war; that
if Tilden is elected the rebel debt will be
paid, and a bill will be passed by Con
gress making the Government pay for the
treed slaves, and sometimes they say that
the object of the Democratic party is to
elect Tilden and then let the South go
and a Southern Confederdcy and put all
the negroes back into slavery again.
Now I know the reader will smile at this,
but. nevertheless, it is the principal non
sense used by the Radicals in this State,
and what the hope to win on. Well,
can the people be gulled by such weak
stuff as that. I think not, and yet a few
n.. 1 .
are. 1 ne negroes over uere are perieci-
ly desperate over false teachings of this
kind. They sincerely believe that the
election of Tilden will be their certain
destruction, and that they will either be
forced again into slavery or driven from
the country. Believing this their feelings
have been wrought up to.the highest pitch,
and in some portions ot the folate they
are frantic and desperate enongh to do
anything that their base' and unscrupu
lous white leaders would tell them to.
AT THEIR OLD TRICKS AGAIN.
Writing about negroes reminds me
that the Democratic Central Committee
have been reliably informed that the
desperate Radical managers of the State
are already importing negroes from Ken
tucky to vote here in October. It ought
to nu.de the duty of a committee of
Democrats, in every township bordering
on the Ohio, to keep a sharp lookout for
these negro tramps. Our friends in Ken
tucky can also aid us much by noting if
any negroes have left thir neighborhood,
and sending us word. There is only one
way in the world for the Republicans to
carry Indians, and that is by a gigantic
scheme of colonization. By bringing ne
groes from Kentucky, white men from Il
linois and Michigan (they have none to
spare out of Ohio), and by the few they
may leave in the State after their reun
ion on the 20th of Sep'ember, they may
make the election rather too close to be
comfortable. As it id now, there, ought
to be 400,000 voters in Indiana, and in
my judgment Uncle Jimmy Williams
will receive fully 225,000 of that number.

One of the best illustrations that Gov.
Hayes if elected President, would be a
tool of designing politicians who surround
wempunea y we weakness be baa
,1Sl.in tw0 ,n"tanc- when
tenmal opening exercises on the Fourth
of July he stated to several friends in
Columbus that during his Eastern trip he
proposed to visit Washington and submit
a draft of his letter of acceptance which
he had then prepared to prominent poli
ticians in that city, including President
Grant, and receive such suggestions as
they might be pleased to offer to be in
corporated with it. Wita the actual in
tention of following the programme
Hayes left for Philadelphia. Meanwhile
the policy of such a procedure was can
vassed among his personal friends in
Columbus, and the result was the unani
mous expression that it would injure his
candidacy if he made his contemplated
visit to Grant. So apprehensive was
Wikoff that Hayes would reach Grant be
fore the folly of the visit can be explain
ed to him tfeat he waited on Colonel Lee,
private Secretary of the governor, and
induced him to send Hayes the following
dispatch, for which" he said he woulc
be personally responsible:
"Columbus. O.. July 3, 1875. Urgent bust
ness demands your immediate return home.
Hayes anticipating that the summons
sent - pointedly had reference to the
amendment of his letter of acceptance
which he about that time intended to
make public, did return, and the visit to
Grant was forestalled, much to his own
chagrin. When the letter was finally
promulgated Grant took umbrage at it,
among bis nearest friends, made no at
tempt to conceal bis disgust at the man
ner in which he interpreted certain por
tions of it as a direct snub at his admin
istration of public affairs. In fact he be,
came quite unruly, declared it was an in
sult to him and one which his patronizing
nature would not brook. The matter had
to be bridged over some way, and Conk
ling and Morton healed the breach in
this wise: Each wrote a confidential let
ter to Haves, informing him of the feel
ings of the President, and advising him
to do something to conciliate Grant, inas
much as his cordial co-operation was es
sential to success. In due time Hayes
complied with the advice, and wrote
letter to Grant denying that he had any
intention in his letter of acceptance to
put any slight upon him or the policy of
his administration, and that the occasion
which seemed to require that he should
thus write him was owing to the fact that
partisan newspapers placed such a con
struction upon the letter. Grant was im
mensely tickled over the communication,
and at once extended an invitation to
Hayes to visit him with his family at
Long Branch, and without consultation
with his friends. Hayes actually accepts
ed the invitation. Now Hayes finds him
self in a dilemma. J hose managing his
campaign honestly, and who do not want
him handicapped with any such odium,
have advised him that visit will inure
only to his irreparable injury. From this
city over a dozen dispatches have been
sent him, cautioning him under no shad
ow ot excuse to make the visit, one en
thusiastic objector stating that it would
lose him a quarter of a million votes-
The recent dispatch sent by the Associ
ated Press from Columbus, that Gov.
Hayes will not be able to leave Ohio dur
ing the canvass, on account of public
business, was sent out as the best method
of advising Grant in particular and the
public in general that the vWit to Long
Branch will not be made. How Grant
will accept this second snub remains to
Elementary Geology of Tennessee.
From the Christian Observer.
BY REV. C. W. LANE. D. D.
The State of Tennessee has set a good
example to her sister State in recogniz
ing by law the importance of the study of
geology in the common schools. This
appreciation of the subject has led Col
William G. McAdoo (a native of Tennes
see, a graduate ot her University, and
though now residing in Georgia, once
prominent at the bar and in public life in
Tennessee;, to unite with Prof, li. C.
White, ottne university 01 ueorgia. in
preparing an elementary geology of Ten
nessee. A tnend widely versed in set
ence has recently read the work and
speaks of it in very favorable terras
The State Superintendent of Public In
struction commends the work very highly.
and pronounces it to be "an admin ble
compilation of the principles and facts
contained in geological works," and that
it supplies a need long felt which the
public school law of Tennessee recogi
The work is commendably small, as all
elementary works should be. Within
twenty pages it describes the physical
features of 1 ennessee. A chapter is then
given to "The Constitution of Rocks of
the State.'' Then a chapter is devoted
to "The Structure of the Rocks.'' Then
follows a chapter giving a brief summary
of the mineral resources ot the State
Then a chapter giving "A General De
scription of Useful Minerals and Ores."
Two chapters are then given to the physi
ography and resources ot the state, ihe
closing chapter briefly discusses ''The
Agencies which, through a long series of
aces, have given to the State the Rock
Beds, Formations and Physical Features
described in the previous part of the
work." The entire work contains one
hundred and eighteen pages.
SVe greet this contribution to populariz
ing science with pleasure. Ihe attain
ments and culture of the authors is a
guarantee that their statements and set
ting forth of geological truth has been
well accurately done. lwo are better
than one. A book composed and scru
tinized by two minds is more likely, other
things being equal, to be entirely relia
ble, than where it is composed and pre
pared for the press by a single mind. This
little work on elementary geology is en
tirely within the comprehension of ad
vanced classes in common schools, and,
diligently studied, will become deeply in
teiesting, especially if the teachers
give life to the text by showing such geo
logical specimens astbe neighborhood af
fords, or such as can be gathered for the
school cabinet. Tennesseeans who have
passed their school days without giving
anv attention to geology, will do well to
give this little work a careful s udy. The
study ot such a worn win make farmers
more intelligent, and all classes more
alive to the riches and wonders of the
State in which they dwell. This advance
movement, in general education certainly
deserves the hearty co-operation of. Ten
nesseeans. and a vigorous effort to ele
vate the new study into a prominent po
sition by a genera! use of the elementary
Would not the same book bear an
adaptation to the common schools of the
other Slates by giving what is peculiar to
the geology of each State, and leaving
out what is peculiar to the geology of
Tennessee? -It will be a felicitous cir
cumstance if the course of Tennessee in
the matter should stimulate such legisla
tion' ofi will call for an elementary gcolo

and of each of the other States.
A Black-star Argument.
The Republican "workers'1 are compli
menting the intelligence of the colored
voters by ensuring them that if the Dem
ocrats are successful in the coming presU
dential contest the whole colored race will
be thrust back into slavery. This all
sounds very absurd, but the frequency of
the repetition of the assertion is pretty
good proof that it is capable of making
some impression, and therefore it is worth
refuting: The thirteenth amendment to
the constitution of the United States guar
antees lreedom to every one in the coun
try, and no party would have the power,
even if it had the inclination to repeal
that amendment. But as a matter of
fact there is no party, or faction, and it
would be fcard to find an individual, in
this country, that has not abandoned
years ago the idea of slavery. The sen
timent of toe whole people is now so
averse to the system, that if the bare pro
position ot slavery could be brought up,
separated altogether irom the circum
stances of our condition, it would not
meet with any support. The Republicans
who endeavor to excite these apprehen
sions in the minds of the colored voters
are quite conscious of the absurdity of
their declarations, and they rarely make
them in a public manner. The warning
of danger is whispered into the private
ar of the colored man, and often er in
to the ear of the colored old woman, in
hopes it will be whispered from mouth to
ear until it sett'es into a conviction that
no reasoning can dissipate. Every intel
ligent colored man ought to know that if
there was anything in this whispered dan
ger it would become a subject of general
and open discussion. The fact that it is
not publicly proclaimed shows that those
who make it are ashamed of the absurd
ity of a t-uggestion which they consider a
strong enough argument for the timid and
weak minds of those they privately en
deavor to persuade. It is this kind of in
struction that the Republicans count
among theit blessings of education, but
the average colored voter is capable of
understanding this matter ia its true light,
and for the sake of intelligence alone it is
worth the time of those who address audi
ences containing colored hearers to dis
pel such foolish apprehensions.. Cour
