The Cld ar Cry.
For ten years past Oliver V. Morton,
now dead, furnished, lit the beginning
1 cf each campaign, tho leading issues
which his party fought tho battle on.
The central idea waaalway)) the same,
with variations hatred of the South.
In each light he cho?e some new
method of attack, but distrust of the
South, and plans for its debasement
and malignmcnt were hU principal
themes. His mantle has not fallen
on any one of equal stature, but quite
a number have his zeal without his
great ability. Senator Angus Cam
eron, of Wisconsin, fir the firt gun,
through tho columns of the JVortt
American licTt'ere. We will make :
few choice extracts. Hear him:
"The South." sava Cameron, "can
play on the flute or ite wn vanity, it
can blow the trump of Its own
prainas admirably well, fur vf otlsm la
the distinguishing trait of all aeml
civilized and uneducated men and na
tion. Hut the perpetual vaunt about
Southern 'etatemanshlp' eould be si
lenced at erica in any grand inquest
i.y tne simple aeioana ror a son wiry
proof of it. "Where le that evidence
to bo found?" And then he adds:
Southern stateamanahlp hai an easy
task. Nature gave New England
rocks and ice as IM chief natar&l pro

sweet climate and affluent lands, and

artericd every State, and mines of
more than imperial weaitn. What is
the old South to-day as compared with
tlie old ortiiT A nownng wilder
ness, with a people ignorant, indo
lent and poor."
These are the words of a blind and
unscrupulous partisan a pharisee of
tlie first water. The South furnished
more Presidents to the Union than
the more populous North, which
gives the lie to the statement that the
South is "ignorant and indolent."
That tlie South is poor, all will admit;
but her poverty is neither the result of
her ignorance nor her indolence. The
war and the freedom of her slaves did
it all, and she is responsible for neither.
Cameron and his party took from the
South four billions of property at one
time, and j'et he has the impudence
and the meanness to seer at herpov-
i ty, by a contemptuous comparison
with the North.
Senator Cameron, not content with
this malignant mi. I false characteriza.'
tion of the Southern people as "igno
rant, indok-ntand poor," attacks them
in a more seriou.- point their honor
and integrity. Hear him:
"It is a time to speak the truth in
plain wonts, and 'the truth I shall
-peak, impugn it whoso listtth.' The
South cotir-uuitly prates of Its honor.
Tlie word is irs sulwtitute for tiie

But the commercial history of Amer

Here is food for thought, and in
centive for action. We regret to say
there are men, leading men, in our
.State, who are In favor of making
Tennessee do Just what tills malignant
Cameron charges against the whole

who are advocating a policy for the

will justify the opprobrious epithets of

Esuthern War Claims.
Republicans never let an opportuni
ty p:is3 to force Democratic Congress
men into a discussion of war matters,
and thus-stir up the bile of the South
erners. During the discussion of the
claim of a Union man during the war,
presented by a Republican member,
Harry White, to whom Grant wrote
the celebrated third term letter, while
the discussion was moving along
smoothly, commenced a violent abuse
of the way Confederates treated
prisoners of war. The Democrats re
plied that the claimants were all
Union men during the war, and the
assertion that they were "rebel war
claims" was untrue. White was not
to b - shelved hi such away, however,
andeieaUd another wild scene like
that which occurred several years ago
when I'.Jaiiie tuned hyena. It is all
done to stir the Northern heart. Reb
els, as they are t ailed, have no inter
est in these claims; indeed it is to
their interest for them not to bo paid,
.u thi.v wiil tret none of them, and
they help t pay tbctu. It is a ques
! tion Ik tw eti the Northern people and
! the Southern loyalists. We trust that

WASHIN3T0H LETTS 3.
Washington, May J 1th, 1S78.
WATTEKSON II ATCHER.
Last niursday night in company
with a lady friend ot Mrs. Harvey M.
Watterson, I called upon this most ex
cellent lady, and spent one of tho
cheeriest and most delightlul even
ings of my "brief but brilliant career."
I made two or three discoveries,
which satisfied my mind on several
points. Mrs. W., was born in my
county, "Old Williamson" the land
of beautiful women and extra-smart
.men. ine iwuaicular spot is tne tarm
near the "old Word Place," and be
tween it and Thompson station. The
good lady's maiden name was Black,
and her father sold this farm to a Mr.
Bamb, and moved over to the "old
Wade Place," where Mr. Cheairs, the
son-in-law of Governor Pointer, now
lives. I thiak she aud Mrs. Stanley
Matthews, her sister, lived there un
til they married the two active and
ambitious men whose names they
bear and have honored. Of course we
had a lively chat about th localities
of her youth. She asked me many
questions about the Bufords, Pointers
and many of the old families which
she remembers so pleasantly. She en
quired about the Hatchers, and told
me of the beautiful attachment exist
ing lietween her gifted son Henry
Watterson, of the Courier-Journal,
and the poetic and witty Col. John E.
Hatcher. This latter gentleman is a
product of "Old Williamson," and I
thought I could trace the secret of the
attachment of these two men, in the
fact that the mother liked the friend
of her son because he was a William
son ian. I claimed kin with Hatcher
and she told me it wasan honor to me.
I didn't eay so, but I inwardly thought
that Hatcher wouldn't get stuck up
about it; liecause my being kin to
him, would advance him in the scale
of civilization several hundred de
grees. In other words, I thought the
brilliant paragraphist had as much
cause to leel good over the relation
ship as I had. 1 am proud of it, any
how. 1 accept the situation, with all
its logical sequences. The distin
guished editor-in-chief of the Courier
Journal was born in this city some
forty years ago, wdiile his father was
enjoying bis tirst term in Congress, as
a mem tier from Tennessee. While
the son was enjoying his lirst term in
Congress Henry II. was born. This
is a coincidence. Mrs. W. told me
that the Rev. Ethelbert Hatcher was
one of the most eloquent men she ever
knew. I informed her that Mr. Fred
eric II. Hatcher, a very promising
lawyer of Columbia, wasasonaf his,
and was fast winning his way into
the hearts and allections of the peo
ple, like his father. She manifested
great interest in the incidents I rela
ted about the late Julius W. Hatcher
and his wife the father and mother o
Col. John K. Hatcher. There can be
no wonder at the brilliancy and suc
cess of Mr. Henry Watterson, when
one sees and talks to his venerable
mother. Her mind is stored with in
cidents of Washington life. She is
vivacious, sincere and very intellectu
al, and a most lewitehing conversa
tionalist. We would have seen the
Hon. Ii. M. Watterson, but for the
fact that he had gone to a reception
given to the male portion of humanity
by the Hon. Samuel J. Kandall.
T.r.sl week I went over to hear Sena
tor John It. Gordon speak about our
finances. There is no doubt but what
this gentleman is regarded as the typ
ical Southerner. Everywhere you go,
men and women regard him in that
light. He knows this, and acts with
wonderful discretion and great mod
sty. 1 confess I had thought before
that he was a little too conciliatory.
But when I heard his earnest and
maiiiy plea for a better financial sys
tem and saw tlie fervor and impas
sioned manner in which he dealt
blows at the Money Power, my heart
warmed towards him, and my mind
changed about his policy. He spoke
his words right out. He referred to
Ids notes, and did not as is too much
the case in the Senate Chamber stand
up and road Ids piece. He is a line or
ator. I ie has a splendid physique. Is
a tali manly looking man, with great
g. ntleiiess of manner, and marked
c.-urK-sy in his demeanor. There is a
very good reason why the North regard.-
him jHcatiari as the represen
tative man -of the South. Prom the
"lime he intcred the army at the head
of n, Georgia regiment until he stood
by Bee at Apponiatox Court House,
he won his way into the aflections of
the soldiers, in a most wonderful man
ner. 1 have heard members of Con
gress say that he was the grandest
looking man in the world, going at
tiie head of a column into battle.
The shouts of the soldiery followed
him wherever he went. For them he
ever had a warm sunny smile and
words of comfort and cheer. I never
knew the desperate straits to which
Ia'o had arrived lie fore the surrender,
until 1 heard him narrate the inci
dents of those last days, on a recent
trip to Boston. At the "Hub" he car
ried everything by storm. He made
wise and patriotic speeches, which
set New England afire. On th-t trip
I saw his graceful and accomplished
wife. The attachment between the
two is as beautiful jis a poem. From
the first day of the war until it closed
she went with him. She shared tlie
soldier's bivouac. When he was en
veloped in the smoke of battle she was
at a convenient distance, and her
prayers encompassed him as a shield
her arms received the hero whenever
he was borne from the Held wounded
and covered with the smoke and blood
of battle. He goes nowhere without
her. I am proud to say that she is a
typical and representative Southern
woman. Jn the abandon of a quiet
circle of friends they call each other
"John" and "Fanny." But I have
digressed from the original proposition.
His speech was well delivered and
frequently applauded. It will be fol
lowed by other eitorts in the same di
rection," and I hoiie and trust that
these warm appeals nviy melt down
the adamantine hearts of the agents of
tho Money Power, so that a little re
lief may be eked out to the toiliug
millions of this Republic.
W H ITT HORN E F I N A X( ' KS.
Mr. Whitthorne this week delivered
a very elaborate speech upon linances.
The Hon. Tom Ewin pronounced it
a very nblft and a very satisfactory ex
position of the questions involved in
the system of relief projosod by the
bulk of the Democratic Party. One of
the short-hand reporters who has
beard all the speeches for years, says
that this speech is as full of ideas and
thoughts as any delivered for many
yeaij da the IJo'uko. It will bp circu
lated freely, and every body can judge
fur himself about its merits.
Another week has elapst-d, end no
resolution locking to an investigation
of the frauds, villainies and perjuries
of Hayes and his confederates in
crime has beu reported to the House.
YTe have been promised every day
such a resolution, but nave to wait for
the developments of another week.
Why thjs delay? It was reported
that the Judiciary Committee would
certainly bring a resolution any day
this week. Now we learn that that
Committee will do no such thing, but
will wait until the House refers the
matter to them. I thought when 1
wrote my hist that the spinal column
of out" party iia.1 sore.ieu up u the
loint where thev m ould go into an in
vestigation of the methods by which
the popular verdict was set aside and
Fraud enthroned in the seat of Wash
ington; but it seems 1 was reckoning
without my host. A meeting of the
joint corumtiteti of bcaau-ro &ud Rep
resentatives has l-c-u held, and it is
quite certain that a resolution will be
reported to tlie House this coming
week. It does seem ridiculous that
tiio Democrats who opened this seioa
with a declaration thai ail frauds and
peculations in the public service
shoti'd U' looked into, should now
stand trembling and Imitating aUmt
probing to the lttom the chief fraud
of tlie century. In looking about for
the reasons for this hesitating and
cowardly .V,y j difov-r that there
is a w 'de-spreatl d1sauglui.'t!on with
Mr. Tilde-n and the Eastern Democra
cy. There is an idea very prevalent
that the money and capital of the
Jfast, li:tve piade cowards of tho ineiti-
bers from that section. Tilden came
from the East lefore the American
people for the highest oflice in' the gift
of the nation. He was elected. Ho
was bullied and cheated out of his seat
by a combination of causes which has
covered the American name with in
famy and disgrace in every quarter of
the Globe. Up to this good hour, in
the face of all the confessed villainies
of the authors of thecrinie, no Eastern
man has arisen in his seat and called
for an investigation into tho means by
which their man and their section
were so incontinently and unceremo
niously cheated and' swindled out of
the fruits of 'a great national victory.
Clarkson N. Potter, with his bo'j-tai'ed
coat and Burnside-whiskers, and ids
great aversion to corruption, has failed
to send forth his stentorian notes into
the chamber of the usurper ami chal
lenge him to an examination into his
title to an oflice, which of right be
longs to a son olhis own State. When
poor Polk was to Ik- lielabored and
bounced, Potter mid Carter Harrison,
and the Radical Cox of Ohio, were ac
tive and very furious. Then they
howled about civil service reform, and
laid out .their victim sprawling upon
the ground with an air of great virtue
No v, while Mel Jn ami Dennis con
fess that .they altered tlie returns in
Florida and thereby stole the vote from
Tilden, Potter and the East. have not
a word to say. It is this base, cow
ardly and hypocritical spirit which
has done our cause and the rights of
Tilden more harm than all the machi
nations and villainies of tlie Radicals.
The Radicals are covered with infamy
as with a garment. They expect noth
ing but defeat. They know and feel
that their works are uncovered. The
Eastern Democrats with hearts of
hares, dare not head the assaulting
column, and sweep over the redoubts
of fraud and perjury, and take their
own. Heaven, how we need some of
the spirit of Andrew Jackson! Want
of backbone and pure and unadultera
ted cowardice are the causes which
have cast mildew and blight upon a
great party. It looks a little like Hen
dricks and his friends are not march
ing up to the reUirementsof the great
issue as they should. It is hinted that
ambition is doing its damning work
in that quarter, 'n other words, it is
insisted here in some quarters that
Hendricks don't want an investiga
tion for fear that the upshot of the
matter will llnd Tilden in the fore
front, and he on the crupper of the
Presidential ticket again. I don't
know whether this is so or not. I
hope it is not. But of one thing 1 am
certain. The people will be-great fools
if they let the rivalries and jealousies
of such men as Tilden, Hendricks and
Thurman ruin the grandest cause in
the whole range of our national histo
ry. In the West, our party has been
paralyzed and defeated, year in and
year out, by the miserable and di---graceful
feuds existing between Thur
man, Allen and Hendricks. 1 have
no admiration for the man who throws
the baleful shadow of his personal a n
bition across the path of a party or .
people struggling for dise;i;hi-a!tmcnt
from an oppression Ihat h:i been
K lein ie.-s, auu mure
exacting than d ath.
Now while t!ie
in knowing all
people are iutt listed
about a great 'Time, lin y must i.e :e
barred from its investigation lo the
whims and oapri-os of ambitious
men, jealous of rivals; or in deference
to the Money Power, that stands shiv
ering and troubling for fear of losing
its ill-gotten gains. N cessardy, an
investigation into Have-' conduct in
the Presidential rape dots not i.o.an
that a revolution is to be thrust upon
the country. But :de aii, iiisal
solutely nccis-ary that the greater
crime of our history should i e looked
into. The people should know how
it was done and why it was done. It
Hayes had nothing to !o with the
crime the pi ople ought to know it.
If he ha.- his oili e by a tenure of title,
as Alexar.dir H. Stephens has de
clared., sounder than Wa-shingtun's,
the i-oo.pie ought fo know ir. If no
Crino- has been committed, then the
cry of fraud should be bushed, and
honor dune to the man who Isolds the
highest office in the laud. The Amor
ican People ate loyal to the oflice.
J hey have even honored the mciim-
Ix-nt. In the most heated davsofthi
past it has struck the world with won
der that at the end of tho contest all
men bowed m allegiance to the sue-
ces-fui candidate, and yielded to him
the rich allegiance of their loyal
hearts. If an investigation can Ik?
bud, and if it shall result in the exon
oration of Hayes from all blame, tlie
American people will accord to in in
that respect which is nue the incum
bent of the Chief Ruler of a great re
public. We know that he litis none
of this now. There is not a heart in
tins broad laud where Hayes is not
condemned, and where his title to his
oflice is not challenged. A tew oihce
seekers have buzzed into bis ears adu
latory notes, but be knows and fecb
that in ev. ry home in this land he li
the subject of unmitigated scorn aini
contempt. .Men have received him
rather than war. He was foisted upoi
the people bv tlnoit and bis minions
To-day I have no doubt Grant is sorry
of the job he put up. Then in file
name of common sense why should
there be any hesitation about investi
gating a matter which occupies and
engages the hearts and minds of
great people, as no other question has
been able todo.it. It may be in my
next I may have the pleasure of chron
icling tlie ottering ot tne report
and the commencement of work,
which will furnish to the world the
history of the mo-it damnable crime
in the annals of time.
On tho loth instant the House will
again take into consideration the joint
resolution of the Senate as to the ad
journment in next month. There is
one thing very evident. The Repub
licans want to adjourn. The early ad
journment of Congress iilloa Re
publican triumph. They can make
nothing bv continuing in session. Then-ports
of Investigating Committees
will add to the infamy which covers
their party. They know that the peo
ple are clamoring for relief, i hoy
know that the Democrats have prom
ised relief to tho people. They know
that if an adjournment be efleeled,
without relief, that tiie people wili
blame tlie Democrats therefor. This
land is full of bankruplcy and ruin.
The North is tilled with 'tramp- and
armed organizations, ready to march
for bread. Why is it that something
cannot In: doio? It docs seem to
me that if our party was possessed
with the high and holy purpose to
hold on here until some uieasu re of re
lief was secured that iclor.v would be
easily achie ved. The people are ex
pecting this. They are looking for il.
But the .Eastern Deinoeiats are so
afraid of the Tariff reform, and so
afraid of financial measures which
will not put money into the pockets of
their section, that they will c mbine
with the Radicals and force an early
adjournment. It is simply awful and
calamitous, that the progressive por
tion of our party have not the power
to achieve suc-Ossat this session. We
must wait. The people must endure
privation, and Maul, and ruin until
the Democratic Party gets strong
enough to get relief. What we lack is
zeal. If Congress could adjourn for a
month and let the members go home
and see the suflering condition of the
country, they would not le in session
ten da j" 3 before some reat ntistire of
relief wyuid be paosisd. John Sherman
said the other daj", in a siieech at Ma
rietta, Ohio, where he had gone to
witness the celebration of the nuj
tial.s which united the dynasties of
Sherman aud Cameron, that every
thing was lovely and serene. I heard
a Republican say that be aw"o silver
lining in tho 'eloud. rso tiny ail

vote, they vote to uphold and perpet
uate the iron polj y of contract ion and
ruin. The ft nth "is, if Congress ad
journs I.OW John i-jhei mail Mill bury
this country so deep iu bankruptcy
and ruin tliV-t it will take a ecu tiny to
get over it. The Democrats ought to
hold a joint caucus and determine to
freeze the concern out. The great
pitA" after all is that we heve not one

The fraudulent administration is
determined to shut the mouth of every
election officer in Florida who has not
confessed. James Bell was an elec
tion otlicer of one of the precincts of
Jelferson couut3". He made a verbal
confession to Samuel B. Milan,
wherein he admitted that 1'' votes
were added lo the Republican side.
This confession was made by Bell just
after he had ln-en turned out of the
Interior Department, because he was
an incompetent or something wor.-e.
Within live days after McLin's con
fession was made public, Schur., the
great civil service reformer, and the
fraudulent Secretary of the Interior,
appointed Bell a clerk in the Inid
Onice. Taylor, who was another
election otlicer of the same precinct
where the fraud to which Bell was a
party was committed, has within a
few days leeii appointed to a good fed
eral olfice, and Sauimis, a negro, who
knew some trifling details aliout the
Jeflerson county fraud, has also been
rewarded. Bell had heretofore made
known his secrets, and for a time was
a pensioner on the public service, but
T;t3 lor and Sannnis were, until Mc
Lin's confession leaked out, considered
too unimM)rtant to le taken care of.
Their importance was manifested as
soon as the election oflicers in Florida
began to tell wdiat they knew about
the late election in that State.
And, singularly enough, Packard of
Iiouisiana never got anj- sort of a con
sideration at the hands of Returning
Board Hayes until the bottom dropped
out of Florida, and straj" paragraphs
Ix-gan to appear in the newspapers to
the effect that somelxMty in Louisiana
would soon be heard from. Then
Packard was made Consul to Liver
pool, the best consulate in his l-Yai:d-uleiic-'s
gift. To make a vacato-v lor
this appointment, Lucius i-'airchild
was transferred to Paris, and made
Consul General, and A. T. A. Torbert
is recalled. And this is done- i:i viola
tion of the fraudulent Secretary of
State's oft repeated declaration about
civil service reform.

A recent number of the Cincinnati

"How far freedom of speech reahy

to "lire the Northern heart.'' In short,
the movement which the Com)n.r il
announces and indorses is simply an
ingenious crusade against the conser
vative policy of the administration
and the Southern Democracy. Those
Republican incendiaries do not expect
to carry a single Southern State for
their party, but tluy do expect, by
inllainmatory appeals to the basest
prejudices aud passions, to revive the
old animosities and rekindle the flame
of sectional hate. And should evil
consequence come, they wiil point to
them as proof that the conservative
policy is a failure, and Southern Doiii
wraU perjured villains.
The game is worthy of the party
whose leaders devised it. It is hi keep
ing with the whole record of that par
ty in the South. It means mischief
and nothing but mischief. It is par
tisanship of the worst kind, intended
to accomplish the worst purposes.
Those purposes are so plain tnat tin
Southern Democrats ought to be on
their guard. They should, as tar as
practicable, counteract in advance tin
influence of the incendiaries upon toe
colored comu:unit3". If our Southern
friends are wise, discreet anil energetic
they can turn the Republican game
against the iuventors. If tluy are
foolish, indiscreet and indolent, the
