Yesterday was a day that will long be v -

though the day was sombre aud gloomy
overhead because the Sun bad veiled bis

will be read with inteiest, as It places the
Governor on record in a matter that, ha-
been greatly agitated as one of the perl's o
a "solid south" in the Presidential election
Read his letter:
To the Hon. Abrum 6'. Hewitt:
Sin I have"received your letter inform
ing me that Republicans high in authority
are publicly representing that "the Soutl
desire not without hope" to obtain paynien
for losses by the late war and to have "pro
visions made for the rebel debt 8d lor tin
losses of slaves.
As the payment of such losses and claim
was not deemed important enough to de
serve the notice of either Convention at th
time it was held, you also ask me to state
my views in regard to their recognition o
Though disposed myself to abide by the
issue as made up already, I have no hesita
tion to comply with your request.
The fourteenth amendment of the Consti
tution expressly- provides as follows:
'The validity ot tne puolic debt or the
United States authorized by law. including
debts incurred for payment of pensions anu
bounties tor services 111 suppressing insur
rection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.
But neither the United States nor any State
shall assume or pay any debt or obligation
incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion
against the United States or any claim for
the loss or emancipation of any slave, but
all such debts, obligations and claims shall
be held illegal and void."
This amendment nas oeen repeatedly ap
proved and agreed to by Democratic Stat-
Conventions of the South. It was unani
mously adopted as a part ol the platform
of the Democratic National Convention ar.
St. Louis, on the 28th of June, and was de
clared by liia- platform to be 'universally
accepted as a final settlement ot tlie con
troversies that engendered civil war.
My own position on this subject had oeen
previously declared on many occasions, and
particularly in my first annual message of
January 5, 1876.
in that document 1 stated that tne south
ern people were "bound by tho thirteenth
fourteenth and fifteenth constitutions
amendments: that they had joined at na
tional conventions in tbe nomination 01
candidates and in the declaration of princ -
pies and purposes, which form authentic
acceptance of the results of the war, em-
ooaiea 111 tne last inree amenamenis 10 tan
organic law of the Federal Union, and that
thev had. bv the sufl'raues of all their vo
ters. at tbe last national election, completed
the proof that now they only seek to share
with us, and to maintain the common
debts of American local self government
in a fraternal union, under the old flag witii
one constitution ana one uesuny.
1 declared at the same time: "The ques
tions settled by the war are never to be re
opened. The adoption of the thirteenth
fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the
Federal Constitution closed one great era
in our politics. It marked the end forever
of the system of human slavery, aud of the
struggles that grew out of that system
These amendments have been conclusively
adopted, and tney have been accepted in
good faith by all political organizations and
tbe people of all sections. They close tho
chapter; they ate a id must be final; all par
ties hereafter must accept ana stand upon
them, and henceforth our politics are to
turn upon questions of the present and the
future, and not upon those of the settled
and final Past."
Should I be elected President, tbe provis
ions of the Foui.eenth Amendment will, so
far as depends on me, be maintained, execu
ted and enforced in perleci. and absolute
goodlaith. No debt will be assumed or
paid. No claim for the loss or emanclpa
tion of any slave will be allowed. No claim
for any loss or damage incurred d.v disloyal
persons arising from the late war, whether
coveid by the Fourteenth or not, will be
recognized or paid. The cotton tax will not
be refunded. I shall deem it my duty to
veto every bill providing for the assump
tion or payment of any such debts, losses.
damages, claims, or tor tne refunding 01 any
i'he danger to the National Treasury is
not from claims of persons who aided tlie
rebellion, but from claims of persons resid
ing in the Southern States or having prop
erty in those States, who were, or pretend
ed to De, or wno tor the sake of aiding
claims now pretend to have been loyal to
tne ooverumeut ol the union, such claims.
even of loyal persons, whether thy are from
acts caused by the operations of war, have
been disowned by tbe public law of civil
ized nations, condemned by the adjudica
tions ot the supreme Court of the United
States, and only find any status by force of
specific legislation or Congress. These
claims have become stale and are often
tainted with fraud. They are nearly al
ways own'ii in wbole or in part by claim
agents, by speculators or lobbyists, who
have no equity agaiust the tax-payers or
the public. They should, in all cases, be
scrutinised with jealous care.
The calamities to individuals which were
Inflicted by tlie late war, for the most part,
irreparable. The Government cannot re
call to life the millions of our youth who
went to untimely graves, nor compensate
the sufferings or ssrrow of their relatives or
friends. It cannot re-adjust, between lnui
viduais, the burdens of taxation hitherto
borne, or of debts incurred to sustain the
Government, which are yet to be paid. It
cannot apportion anew, among ourcitizens,
the damages or losses incident to military
operations, or resulting in everv variety of
form from its measures for maintaining its
own existence. ; It has no sate geueral rule
but to let by-eones be bv-eones. to turn
from the dead past to a new and beuer fu
ture; and, on that basis, to assure peace,
reconciliation aud fraternity between all
sections, classes and races of our people, to
the end tbat all the springs ot our pro
ductive industries may be quickened, and a
new prosperity creaieu 111 wincu me evtis Ol

Of these nine are Democrats, who will,

Clayton, West, Alcorn aud Robertson, Re

Hamilton, of Texas, Independent, has a
Democratic successor. As the Senate now
stands forty-two Republicans to twenty
nine Democrats and two Independents, the

Ihirty-six Republicans and thirty -seven
Democrats, with one independent. It will
be seen, therefore, that if is by 110 means
impossible that the next Senate snail have
11 small Democratic majority. If the Repub
lican managers continue to make arbitrary
arrests in tae South they will probably so
irreat ly alarm tne iNorin as to ning even ine

New Orleans, Oct. 30- On Saturday the
Republicans began to arrest Democrats un
der t he 2,(. U0 aflldavits tiled Saturday against
fraudulent registers. 0;ily a few victims
were found, aud they submitted quietly lo
c-ipture, although it was feared this morn
ing .that there would be trouble. For the
purpose of making arrests, the police fore-?
had bten largely increased, and hundieds
of the members commissioned as Deputy
Marshals. To-night o,w additional war
rants will be Issued, aud a like number to
morrow. The purpose ol the Radicals is not
so much the arrest of the victims es it ?s to
ere tea pretext for erasing tlie names of
those agaiust whom warrants are issued,
and this they will do, beyond a doubt. ISy
this means they will cut down the Demo
crat ic vote in the parish 10,000 or 12,100.
Their game is evldeLt from the fact that
nearly all the names they have were taken
Irom the lists of 1X74, and they claim lrauds
under that list, whereas it is clear that since
two years ago thousands of persons must
have their residences. The secret motive is
to provoke tlie Democrats to some violent
measure in opposiuou to these high-handed
measures, aud theu at the fi -si disturb

Oraut wouid send them. A prominent
Radical said yesterday: "We will either

entwined witn all tne interests 01 tne peo
ple tliat4ts growth Is slow, its change Is
.low, 11s reformation is slow unless we
would run the risk of introducing abuses
greater than those to be corrected. The
Democratic party has steadily progressed
towards Judicial reform. The first effort of
tlie Democracy was to give society peace, a
vi .oiousaud firm administration of law, to
restore the reign of order, without regard to
the expense. No matter what the cost, so
ciety must have law administered. Securi
ty tor person and properly miut be ottered.
Repulicuu rule had not afforded such se
curity. Though costly. Republican law had
been almost no law. Tennessee was the
haunt of crime. There was no security, no
peace. None need to be reminded ol this,
nor of how Democracy restored peace and
security. To bring order out it chaos, to re
store peace for strife, and law for crime,
co.-i something. To reverse the Republican
rut..- aud make it Democratic peace and se
en n I y was not to be done without cost.
The Democracy has, however, steadily
sought to reduce the cost of criminal prose
cutions; to simplify the system; to reduce
the number of Judges and attorneys gener
al; to reduce tlie number of Jurors; to in
crease the misdemeanor list, and to enlarge
the grade petit larceny and make it a mis
demeanor. There is now pending an
amendment to permit fewer than twelve
persons to constitute a Jury. These are
measures which are a more rapid progress
ton aid a more perfect judicial system. It is
fair 10 suppose that a party that has thus
been going prudently and cautiously from
one reform to another will not stop short of
bringing out of the old system a perfect new
oue. To change the entire judicial system
at once would be stopping society with a
jolt like reversing the engine on down
graue. we ueeu carelui readjusting, not re
lorm, for the trouble is not abuses; but a ,
system suited to the past which we have I
The Democracy could do nothihg better
than to put the existing system in working
order in lntiU and restore peace to society.
That done, it benan tbe work of llehteninir
the.judicial burdens: and the next Demo
cratic Legislature will leave very little in
tne oiii system to wnicn any oDjecuon can
be made, ll would be blind and unreason
ing prejudice to vote agaiust tlie Democrat
ic iicaet while it is accomplishing the all
most ardent economist can wish or expect.
