MR. TILDEN'S LETTER.
Prom the Courier-Journal.
The letter of Mr. Tilden to the New
York delegation and to the Demon utic na
tional convention is so pregnant witli the
forces of truth, true statesmanship, true pa
triotism, that the enemies of the great man
must pause in admiration before the object
of their unceasing jtnd malicious slanders.
The Republicans who have sought to
ruin lira because he is greater und more
noble than they; because lie came out of
' the smoke and din of the battle of 1870 a
" ictor, the successful champion of the peo
ple and, their rights; because ho alone, of
all men, was able to lead tho Democratic
hosts into the strongholds of the pollutors
. I tne icmpie oi iioeriy uo jw.puoucans
;, who fear and hate Mr. Tilden because of
f v these things may mock the trenchant letter,
. but they feel the blade cut deep down into
their vitals and they squirm as all cowardly
. ' aaaailanU do in the presence of a great in
V)Hence which they have attempted to
''''.'"'i'iv'-: ' .
1 '...;'. .
The Democrats who have Joined the Re
publicans ia the war of defamation can not
but address their reflective powers to tho
words of Mr. Tilden. Their charge against
Mr. Tilden is that, after ho was electud, he
'did not takfl his seat," and therefore ho is
unworthy to lead tho party to another vic
tory. Mr. Tilden, in a few pungent words,
dismisses that charge:
"The constitutional duty of the two
houses of congress to count the electoral
vote as cast, and to give effect to the will of
the people as expressed by their suffrages,
was never fulfilled."
Answer that, if you can, oh ye Democrats
who have set upon Mr. Tilden with the
bloodhounds of inluriated Radicalism!
Who is to blame for the failure to meet the
desperate crowd of Republican burglars
and crush them by the constitutionally
provided method? There is no evasion
possible. Mr. Tilden places the whole bus
iness of 1870 and 1677 before the party in
its true light. His few vigorous paragraphs
on the 6ubject(lestioy the basis of the op
position within the party. His language
is calm and dignified. His plei is for the
partv which wa9 sorely outraged and in
jured, and in point of magnanimity,
the letter has never been sur
passed. He seeks an "honorable
discharge from his great work for the Dem
ocratic party. He points, with no jacula
tion, but modestly, as becomes a man who
has done great things for administrative
reform, to his triumphant work in New
York, before which his enemies are silent
and for which, ere he was a candidate for
the presidency, he received their loud
plaudits. The letter is well calculated to
engender reflection in the minds of all
Democrats. It is certain to draw to him
with redoubled affection, those who have
followed him, believed in him, trusted him,
defended him, through the last three years
and a half of inimical comment.
Let us mark the result of the withdrawal
of Mr. Tiiden, of that withdrawal is ac
cepted by the Democratic party. The Re
publican organs have always declared that
"the refusal to renominate Tilden will be a
confession that he was not elected in 1876,
and that the cry nf lraud, which has been
the watchword of the party since the deci
sion of the electoral commission, had no
other basis than a falsehood." That has
been the stereotyped utterance of the or
gans for a year. They will anfphfy it all
through the campaign; they will charge
the Democrats with insincerity in their as
sertion of the commission of the great po
litical crime of 1876, which violated the
great principle that the majority of citizen
voters shall prevail in the government of
this Democratic republic. They will reiter
ate the Democracy unite in indorsing the
proceeding by which a defeated candidate
for the presidency was seated in the white
house in defiance of the will of a majority
of the people. This they will do with all
the noise and mendacity of which their rev
olutionary party is capable. They who ig
nore the strength of the persistent main
tenance by the Democratic party of the
charge, backed by overwhelming proof, of
the inegatherian outrage on constitutional
liberty perpetrated by the Republicans,
must be growing careless of the fate of the
republic. It was and is a mighty tower of
strength in the party, and abandoning that
issue, it will not take a man of giant dis
cernment to perceive that the party has
weakened its power to the usurping Repub
lican party, as the waves proclaimed,
THE ORIGIN OF THE TERM "DARK
The origin of the term "dark horse" is
explained in u matter-of-fact way by the
Cincinnati Enquirer. Once upon a time
there lived in Tennessee an old chap
named Sam Flynn, who traded in horses
and generally contrived to own a speedy
nag or two which he used for racing pur
poses whenever he could pick up a "soft
mutch" during his travels. The best ot his
flyers was a coul black stallion named
Dusky Pete, who was almost a thor
oughbred, and able to go in the
best of company, Flynn was accustomed
to saddle Peta when approaching a town
and ride him into it to give the impression
that tho animal was merely "a likely boss"
and not a flyer. One day became to a
town where a country race meeting was
being held, and ho entered Pete among
the contestants. The people of the town,
not knowing anything of his antecedents,
and, not being over impressed by his
appearance, backed two or three local
favorites heavily against him. Flynn mov
ed quietly among the crowd, and
took all tho bets against his nag. Just
as the "flyers" were being saddled for the
race old Judge McMinumce, who was the
turf oracle of that part of the state, arrived
on the course, and was made one of tho
judges. As bo took his place in the stand
ho was told how the betting ran, and of the
folly ot tho owner of the strange entry in
backing his "plug" so heavily. Running
his cyo over the ruck, the jndgo instantly
recognized Pete, ami ho said : "Gentlemen,
there's a dark lnrse in this raco that will
make sown of you smell h before sup
per." Tho judge was right. Pete, the
"dark horse," lay buck until the three
quarter polo was reached, when he went to
tho front with a rush, ami won flic purse
and Flynn's bets with the greatest ease.
Ingersoll in a recent lecture made the fol
lowing beautiful remark:
"I would wish that their friends who bid
us 'good night1 in this world might meet
us with 'good morning' there. Just so
long as we love one another we'll hope for
another world; lust as long as love kisses
tho lips of death will we belicvo and hope
for another world."
The hope that "springs immortal in the
human breast," has not died in his. Years
hgn he spoke no thought of life beyond
this world. Rut as he nears tho shore of
tho mysterious ocean, ho cannot cling to
tho belief that it has no opposite bound.
His gentle heart has taught him
better. That love which has kissed the
lips of his own dead refuses to let him
think that ho will seu them again no more.
As "frieud after friend departs," the hu
man longiug follows them, and teaches
even the atheist that there Is a lovely world
We are told th at animals show things by
instinct. We may believe that men and
women know things by intuition. We all
know that the idea of annihilation ia tho
most repulsive that ever came into our
head, and the on, of all others
that never comes into our heart. Among
"all sorts and conditions of men" -in nil
culture in all heathenism, not merely in
religion, but in morality tud manly life,
the mainspring . of all our being is an un
conquerable hope or dread of a lnture life.
The Christian, tho Mahomcdan, tho Chud
dist and the heathen, all believe it. And
even thoannihilist, when his personal affec
tions make this world lonely for him,
abandons his sophistry, and cries tor the
world where he will again meet his loves.
That endless existence is proven to our
heart, if not to our intellect. That unan
swerable still voice proves that "though
worms destroy this body, yet shall I see
THAT'S WHAT MR. GARFIBI.D IS.
1'hiladclpbla News (High tariff.)
Hon. Russell Errctt of Allegheny county
is probably as staunch a protectionist us
can be found in tho state. A man of in
telligence and of positive convictions, he
was decidedly opposed to Mr. Garfield
when tho latter was a candidate for speak
ership of tho house because of his mem
bership in the Cobden club. As a result of
correspondence on the subject, Mr. Errett
examined his record, and was convinced
that he done him injustice. Yesterday, in
returning thanks for his third nomination
to congress, Mr. Errett publicly acknowl
edged the important service rendered by
Mr. Garfield during the session of
congress to tho causo of protection.
He has done more than any
other man to defeat the schemes of tho free
traders. His election as an honorary mem
ber of theCobden club had nothing whatev
er to do with the tariff. The compliment was
bestowed because of a speech on finances,
by Mr.Garfield. Representing a protectionist
district in congress, he is not at all likely
to be unfaithf ul to this issue, and his fre
quent re-election to congress is proof that
he is regarded by his own people as souad
on the tariff. His views, as the News
pointed out a few days since, exactly coin
cide with those of our most intelligent
protectionists in this 6tato. He favors pro
tection now, with the ultimate object of se
curing cheapness in manufactures and of
reaching tree trade when it shall also be
equal trade. The people of Pennsylvania
need never doubt the fidelity of General
Garfield to their views.
Said Jones, "Fred Grant won't have so
soft k thing as he has had." "I don't
know," replied Robinson ; "he'll have a soft
thing so long as he keeps cool and doesn't
lose his head." Slightly ambiguous is

Fever axd Ague may be thoroughly
cured by the use of "Cincho-Quinine," a
new preparation from Peruvian Burk. The
dose is the same as Sulphate Quinine, and
its febrifuge, tonic, and anti-periodic effect
is more pronounced. Withal it is cheaper,
being sold by druggists at $1.50 per ounce,
or sent, postuge paid, for same price, by
Billings, Clapp A Co., Manufacturing
Chemists, Boston, Mass.
Itching Piles is one of the most an
noying diseases in the world, and yet
all can find sure relief by the use of Dr.
Swayne's Ointment. It has been tested
in thousands of instances and invaria
bly makes a sure cure. The symptoms
arc moisture, like perspiration, intense
itching, increased by scratching, very
distressing, particularly at night, as if
pin-worms were crawling in and about
the rectum; the private parts are some
time affected. Procure this ointment.
Reader, if you are suffering from this
distressing complaint, tetter, itch, scald
head, ringworm, barber's itch, any
crusty, scaly skin eruptions, use Dr.
Swayne's Ointment and be cured. Sold
