The following important leiler from Sen
ator Bavard, of Delaware, was received loo
late to fie read before the meeting of the
New York Tammany Society ou the Fourth
Wii.minotox, Del., July 1, 1 sj78.
Hon. Tlioinai" Dunlap, Chiilrmnii.
Dear Sir: -I inn obliged toyou for the
invitation of the Society of Tammany to
join in their celebration of the nation's
birthday on next Thursday, but. regret that
it will not lie in my power to accept it.
The political occmrcncca ot tho last two
years, as they are berny daily brought to
light trom tneir recesses ot dishonest con
cealment, should teach tho peoplo of the
United States tho ever-recurring need of
stamping with the severest condemnation
everything that tends to weaken and im
pair the great principle ot free nnd fair
The distinguishing feature the very
safety-valve in our plan of government, is
the means provided, in the process of free
elections, for the people to- correct their
errors and retrieve their political mistakes,
whether by revoking misplaced trusts and
punishing those who have deceived them,
or changing the drift of political measures
that have proved hurtful, o that, taught
by experience, they may prevent the repeti
tion of disaster. The great issue of the
imntediale future is, in my judgment, the
reassert ion of this idea, Hnd the solemn and
resolute determination by our countrymen
that elections ahall be free, shall be the
actual expression of the opinion and
wishes of the citizens, and that they shall
be honestly and fully acquiesced in by the
See to hat consequence a different course
and theory have led the party called lie
publican at the last Presidential election,
and how close upon the rocks tho ship of
state was driven, until--thanks to the pa
triotic and masterly self-control which ani
mated the Democratic parry she was res
cued and rendered capable of carrying her
precious freight of human happiness and
hopes u)Kiti new, aud let us trust success
ful voyages. Tho underlying idea of our
institutions free choice by the people, and
honest and honorable acceptance of the
popular verdict as final by all parties has
lx:cti w holly disregarded and condemned hy
the Republican leaders, and, to use the Inn
gtinge f one of the most cemsrdnvtrms nnd
influential among them, Him. John Slier
man, the present secretary of the treasury,
in a late letter to tho Ohio Republican Con
'The only threat that endangers the pub
lic weal and safety is the rcatonuion of the
Democratic party to power.
I cannot but regard its restoration to power
as the only danger that really threatens our
public peace and satety .
.Mr. Sheiman is callc.l a Republican, aud
has often held, aint now holds, an olhVe
which is coupled w ith an oath to ,supHrt
the written charter of his rotintty's govern
ment, yet he does not, hesitate in his
partian zeal to make this open, defiant
proclamation that everything is to lie sub
ordinated to the one idea uf preventing a
political organization, embracing in its
liicmliership a large majority of his fellow
citizens, from again obtaining, under law.
the control of the administration of Un
constitutional powers of their government,
which for seventy years of unbroken honor
and prosperity it had exercised.
The light already thrown by Congres
sional investigation upon the action of Mr.
Sherman and his "visiting associates in
Louisiana iu the fall of lfiiti the moans
and methods then rusorted to, and of which
they so freely availed themselves), to accom
plish the one great end of depriving
their political opponents and the American
people ot the just t nuts ot a laou
i'ous nnd earnest efforts by the lawful
methods of popular election lo obtain re
form in administration and relief from lo
cal misrule s'i vile that it is spn adin like
poison from the unhappy communities
where he and his party had established and
crept throiighoutall the arteries of our Fed
eral system--may now be better compre
hended as they clearly appear in the char
acters ami careers of the Anderson-, the
Wcll.sc.s, the Kelloggs mid the ,,'cnks - that
motley nmi ribald group of political miscre
ants, male and female, iu whos; hands Mr.
Sherman and his party had placed the
wires of low and prolligatc political man
agement .which iiiul converted popular
elections into what would seem a horrible
farce were it not so tilled with tragical con
sequences. The American people have a sure remedy
for every political evil in the periodical! re
course to a free ballot. Leave that light
unimpaired and thev will rtricve their er
rors and correct their mistakes and follies;
but if deprived of it, they will be reduced
to the single alternative of H-rpettinl and de
grading submission Lo admitted wroug, or a
resort to u forcible resistance to rid them
sclvei of oppression.
Mr. Sherman and his sllics would close
the door of relief through the orderly and
lawful change of rules and policies by the
honest and liomrahli; acceptance of the re
sults of popular elections, and his brother,
the general of the armies, is reported lately
to have made the gratuitous but pregnant
avowal, at the. National Military Academy,
that the urinv of the United Slater', under
his eomiimnil. would imhositntlngly be em
ployed to sustain the ti'nnie of a president
without regard to tin- riiyht or just ire under
aw of his title I i tin- oil'ic

One night not long ago, this young girl

is that both women were young, attractive,

give us un appalling hint. It is useless tu
ignore this fact. Neither the pulpit nor tho
press, if it means to help at nil the work of
bettering our social life, ought to ignore tho
tact that n certain ixntion of American nnd
English society is rapidly becoming as
licentious as that of Paris.

Magdalen in the streets of New York as of
Jerusalem. It is the mothers who Hre to
blame. Mothers in fashionable society, iu
the cities, and in that society which feebly
apes the fashion in towns and villages and
farm places from Maine to Oregon, who set
before their datigliteM,from their birth, dress
and show and style as the sole gods they
are to follow. v venture to say that
'style," that most vulgar of words" aud
things has done us much to corrupt the
women of America as liquor has. Not only
was it the cause of our financial downfall
but modesty, limit-sly, decency nr saniliccd

the rules' for ''first communion
dresses," and sets forth the pip
ings and coilfure in which an innocent
girl may properly approach her Hod. There
is nothing so holy that it is not made sub
servient to it. It is not the wealthy mother
atone who vitit ttes her child's mind by this
worship of folly, but the mechanic's wife,
