A CCRIOl'D Ml'IBOT. 1IY bYI-VANL'S CUHH, JIU A few evenings bii-c", a small party of ns were nsxeiiiblt'! in " Ming parlor, ilicuruiiiig tlio vari tuis toiiica uftlietlay. Wo li.nl nui the "Hard Times" till nothing inure wait to be said upon the sulijtxt, anil then we turned our attention to the criminal casni detailed in the various news paper. There were thefts, robbeiies, murders, nrsons, aud all sorts of luiMlttiU brought before ns, and we gave them &uch cmsidcratiou as we could afford. "Sieaking of thefts," remarked one of the par ty, "puts me in mind of a curious circumstance that once happened ill my own house. I will re late it if yon choose to bear it." The speaker's name was Ilartou "Uncle Sim" we always called him his Cliriitiau name being Simeon. He was well advanced iu years, and bad been engaged in hotel-keeping doling mw.t of bis 'life. We were' anxious tu iear hia otorv, and be related it aa follows: "Something over twenty years ago, I kept a hotel in the western part of this State. The lo cation was a good one, for there was considerable travel, but I had many good boarders. "It was somewhere near the Grst of July, along towards evening, that a splondid carriage drew up at my door, and as the driver leaped from his eat, he asked one of my men to come and help him. The carriage was opened, and a yonug girl a bright, pretty thing, not over fifteen was the first to alight. After this, .the driver readied in, and, with the assistance of my porter, banded ont tie sickliest -looking man for a traveller, I had ever seen. He was tall and bent, and seem ed more like a living skeleton than a thing of fleeh and blood. The bones were all clearly de fined, through tb parchment like skin, aud I al most fancied I could bear bis frame rattle, as he was helped along. A dry. abort coiigh shook his system, and an occasional groan seemed to indi cate that he suffered much. I had him conduct ed at once to the parlor, where I waited npou him aa aoon aa the carriage bad gone. "I found him upon one of the solas, ureatotng with difficulty, and quite exhausted. He inform ed me that he was a merchant of New York, and nearly gone with consumption. His physician ii-wt advised him to come to my place and spend tbeSnmmcr, and he had followed the counsel. I Jdiew he had come, bat with regard to spending the Summer I waa not so sure. He seemed near er to the chnrch-yard than anything else. He told me' I should have no trouble with him, for his physician wonld visit him nearly every day, and hia daughter had come to wait upon him. He nave his name as Oscar .Luton, and the bright eyed girl he called Clara. " I could not refuse him. He offered to pay me . any price I might demand, andas I had ons to iSre, 1 determined to take him. So 1 had the T .. a 1- t.- ami ar-ann ajt all Wa Jeady, we helped him up' stairs. He wen to bed at once, being faint and weary. "Onthe following morning a gentleman came -who introduced himself aa Dr. John Adams. He anofage, and possessed a peculiar faculty of .iring confidence at once. I learned from him that he waa stopping with a sister on 1y a few miles off, and should remain there while his pa tient, Luton, lived. While we were conrsing, Clara cameln and informed the doctor that her father wished to see him aa aoon as possible. "In half an hour the doctor came down anaa lD5pr frUowl he said, taking a act by m side. He can't live long.

The lawyer closed his letter by asking me to look aroand carefully, and see if I could gain any clue to the property. "That very evening Clara Luton came to me , and told me her father wished to see me. I wen,t up at once, and found the invalid raised to a sif ting position iu the bed, with t pile of bolsters and: pillow, behind him. He looked far mpre like a dead man than a living one. He aske. me to sit down, and then made some remarks, upon the state of his health. He said lie thought he ahould get well he knew be was' very weak much weaker than when he came te could not even stand aloue now but, still he bcyid to re cover. I saw Clara .turn her bead a'jv, and I thought tears came to her eyes. Poor girl! she knew well enongh that there was no recovery for her father. "'Uut,' said Luton, at the end of a long pause, speaking in a hoarse, gurgling whisper, and with an expression of pain, 'I sent for you ou strange business. Have you manyboanlersinyourhousef " I told him that the house waa nearly full." " 'Aud are any of them strangers to you I ' "Yea nearly all of them,"" 1 returned, puzzled at the question. "'I do not wish to trouble you,' Luton resum ed, 'for you have been very kind tome, audi know there is no fault with you. lint last night 1 lost between ten and twelve hundre-V dollars. I don't know exactly bow much tbere'nas, but it was over a thousand. I had it iu that little dressiug-case, (pointing to a rose-wood liv'i. upon tun mujo. awui uiiiimj-ui -1 scui -jiara to Deu, and then, under the iulluencn of an opiate, I fell asleep myself. I slept until daylight, as did my child, and this morning I found my money gone. My door was not locked,, and some one must have come in during the night, aud robbed me. Uut,' be added, as 1 began to express my alarm and sorrow, 'don't let my loss trouble you, fori shall not feel it, nor will it affect at all the good opinion of your house. I only mention it that yoa maj be ou the watch, for others, who cannot afford it, may meet with a similar loss if the thief isnot detected.' ' "As the in valid seemed exhausted by hi. ef forts thus far, I asked him no more questions. He said the money be bad was montly in gold, only about two hundred dollars of it being in bank-notes. He described the bills as uearly as he could, and I then took my leave. "I was in trouble now, sure euough. That there was a regular hotel-thief in the house was evident; but how should 1 find himf I had a hundred and fifty jieople stopping with me, and of the whole lot 1 was not acquainted with over iive-aud-tweuty of tbeui. However, I did the best I could. 1 put the clerk aud chambermaids ou the watch, and resolved to keep au eye open myself. "Just before supper was ready, a party of uoaruars reiumeu iroinaaaysjauut among tne hills. They had takeii teams and left immediate ly after breakfast. 1 was iu the bar-room wbeu tliey entered, aud two of them, who occupied the same nxmi, csuie and whispered to me that they had been robbed during the previous night. One hail lost two hundred and ten dollars, and the other, over a hundred. It had been taken from their pockets. "lint this was not the worst. When the stage came in from the West, it brought a New Orleans merchant, with liU wife and two servants, who Hereon their way to New York. I gave them the only suit of" mom 1 had to spare, and then left my clerk to receive their orders. In the morning the merchant came to me with a look of deep trouble aud anxiety. He hail lieen robbed of fourteen !houaud dollars duriog tho night! "I was frightened now in earnest. At this rate I should soon lie utterly ruined. I told the maii 10 wnit until alter breakfast, aud I would see what we could do. He did not blame me, nor did he seem anxious to resort to extreme measure.?, though he would leave nothing un done which could possibly lead to the detection of the thief. "When the guests had all-taken their seats at the table for breakfast, I rau my eye carefully over the company, aud found every person who had been there on the night before. I could de tect no guilty looks, nor could I find a villaiuuus looking face. At length I asked them to give me their attention for a few moments, aud when they were still, I told them all that had happen ed. I told of the letter I had received from New York; of the loss of over ten hundred dollars by Mr. Luton; of the robbery of the two young men; and, finally, of the heavy loss of the New Orleans merchant. I told them that I suspected no one. I looked uikmi each aud every nue as honet. Yet, under tho circumstances, I hoped they would all be willing to allow their baggage to be exam ined. At this a young man jumped up and said : '"Aye I for one, demand to be examined, and I hope all will do the same.' "And then he put it to a vote, requesting all who were iu favor of the examination to arise. Kvcry soul stood up iu a nioineut. After the meal was dune a committee was chosen from among the guests, and I went with them over the bouse. We first examined the persons them selves, aud then overhauled the trunks and box es, lint nothing of the stolen property was to be found. My own meu had been stationed at the doors, so that no one could leave, and thus we kuew that all bad been searched. "I could do no more then upon the premises. The New Orleaus merchant, whose name was La font, concluded to keep 011 to New York, but ob tained from me a promise that I would leave uo stone unturned to find his money. "Two days after this, a planter from Kentucky stopped with me, and on the very first night of his stay his trunk was robbed of eight ujjuisand dollars, while another man, on the same, night, lost uearly four thousand! On the Dwt day, when this became known, forty-seven crny best boarders left me. They would stay no longer' where they were liable to lose everything, and where, moreover, they were in constant danger of being suspected of crime, "I began to grow desperate. There was a thief quartered upon me an expert and myste rious thief and I determined to find Hm if it lay within the bounds of human possibility. If I did not, my patrons would all leave me, and my growing busiuess would be ruined. That very afternoon the stage from O.wegn, brought a wealthv family who were on their way to the Mississippi. 1 gave them the same rooms Mr. Lafont had occupied, and then detcirrined to keep a watch upon them through the knight. I said nothing to aify oue of my purpose,but when the guests had all retired I took up my position where uo one would be likely to see me, but yet where I could see the door of the apart meut in question. There was no light burning iu this upper hall, but the starlight from the Mo large wiudows would euable me to detect theiiresence of any one within my range of vision. V" " "It was very near midnight when I (ok my post. The clock struck one then two-Jnd yet to sound had I heard. Perhaps the thief bad gone; or, maybe, he was afraid te venture again so won. Italian hour more passed, anal was becoming tired of my watch, when I heard a movemeut as of a door being opened very softly, and iu a few moment more I saw a dark figure glide across the hall. It was a slight, short per son, and in female attire. I looked more sharply, and finally satisfied myself that it was Clara Lu ton. I supposed that she must be after some thing for her father. But no. She moved di rectly to the door of the traveler', chamber, and I placed her ear to the key-hnle, and at the end of . a minute she glided back as she had come. I "I begau to be interested. What could that I voung girl be doing out there at sncha timet But 1 had not long tor reflection. Terr soon the ' sound of a very carefully opened door came again, and in a tew seconds another object pre sented itself. It was tall and dark, and moved with a cat-like, noiseless tread, and from a sin gle ray of light which shot out before it, I knsw ' that it must bear a dark lantern. Who could it ' be t Surely uot Dr. Adams, for he went away before noon. But I bad enough to do to watch the person's movements. He I knew it was a man stooped down to the lock of the door, and j ere long be had it opened. He entered the room . beyond the room where my dew guest tdept- I without having as yet made a sound which I . copjd hear, siuce passing bis own door. I deter mined to wait until he came out, and then con front him. "The minutes passed on twenty of them, at least and finally the man re-sppesxed." He clos ed the door carefully behind him, and then start- a.1 qpniM tli. li.ll Wit... k. htlf wir nvir 1 1 leaped forward and grasped bin by the collar. I He uttered a grating curse, and, with a power which I was not prepared to overcome, he cast me from him and rushed toward hi. own room. But I was mad now, and with a single bound I grasped him again, this time bringing bim to the Uoor. At this moment the door of his room wa. opened, and as the light of the lamp from within fell upon hi. Ctee, I recognized the cadaverous features of Oscar Lnton! It was my invalid my dying man! At first I could hardly believe the evidence of my own senses. Whence came the strength Lehad manifested f But be gave me little time for thought then, and would prob ably have given me some trouble hail not the noise of our scuffle brought some of the other boarders from their rooms. It waa Clara who had opened the door and let the light out, but she turned back aa soon aa she saw me. "With the assistance of some of the newcom ers I soon had my iiruuuer second, mad then I stood back and looked at bim. He wa. a. thlu aud pale, and deathly as ever, only there was a fire in bis eye which I bad Dot seen there before. It was the same skeleton, but with a uew life in it. I asked him several questions, but he would make no reply. We searched hi. person, and found the small dark lauteru,' half-a-dizen curi ously constructed implements for picking locks, together with some thousands of dollars which he bad taken but a few minutes before. When we had overhauled bim thoroughly, we lasbed his hands aud feet, and having put him In a small unoccupied bed-room. I called a stout hostler to come aud keep watch over him till morning. "After this, we went to his room, where ws found the young girl ou the bed sobbing and cry ing bitterly. She was so pretty, so mild, and seemed so distressed, that my sympathies were at once excited, aud I promised hei, if she would tell me the truth, that uo harm sbonld come to her. "'He'll kill me!" she cried in terror.' "'Who'll kill youf ' Tasked her. "'Both of them.' "'You mean Luton and Adams! ' "'Yes. " I finally led her to my own room, where my wife was, aud succeeded in quieting her fears; aud when 1 bad given my solemn assurance that she should not be arrested for anything more than a witness, she told me the whole story. "She said her mother died when she was very young of her father, she knew nothing. When she w as ten years old, she was taken by a bad woman who professed to be her aunt. There she became acquainted with Luton,.whose real name she did uot know, aa he had gone by different names at different times. At length this Luton paid the professed auut some money, aud the poor girl n as given to him. As soou as she was able she was lorccd to assist hermaster in his villainies, he threatening her with death in case of refusal. She said he had always been very thin aud pale, ever since she knew him, but the intensely cadaverous hue of his face was produc ed by a preparation of his own, which he applied when necessary. No amount of food could put any tlesh njHin his bouts, though Ids general health seemed to. be good. - "She said the professed doctor was an accom- Elice and they hail already operated in several otels,justas they had been operating in mine. When 1 asked her how tbey contrived their plans, she told me that she hail to watch the coining of the guests, and report such as appeared to have money. Tlieu she had to see what room they took, and ali-o make a careful survey of the doors, and so on. This she could do easily, as ber wan dering over the bouse would excite no suspicion. During the tlaysho would manage to obtain the keys of those rooms .in which wealthy guest, lodged, and by them Lnttou would shape his im plimeuts for picking the locks. At night, when her master thought it safe to work, she bad to glide out and survey the premises to see that all was safe; and if she chanced to meet any oue she had only to keep 011 duwu stairs; as though she were after something in the kitchen, and thns prevent suspicion. When she reported all quiet, Lutton would issue forth to Ids work. "Iu the morning 1 had an officer called, and n hen doctor Adams made bis appearance he was arrested. At first he was greatly surprised; then be grew angry, and sw ore, awl finally be came calm and sullen; I had learned from Clara that Adams carried the money off when Lutou had obtained it. The doctor would not tell ns w here he stopped, but the place was easily bunt ed up, and there we found all the property which had been stolen from my guests. It waa in a small trunk nbich we found locked up iu a larg er oue. "Thus I waa enabled to return to my custom ers, every dollar they had lost, aud as soou as the facta became kuonu, my boarder all came back. Masters Luton aud Adam, were found to be old offenders, aud upon trial they were con victed aud sentenced to a term of imprisonment which seemed likely to outlive them. Clara liv ed with me several years, and then became the clerk; and she is now the honored and respected hostess of the very hotel where ber last labor of evil for a wicked master was performed."

September 21, 1872. ) The Great and Good Greeley, (wich the same has developed into a better Dimokrat than I sposed possible) wnz bent npou goin to the West somehow. Like the immortal A. Johnson, Hor ris hex au uncommon idea'uv his power with the masses. He bleeves there is a magnetism in bis presence .that .ways people whether or no. 'I lev bin nnforennnit in hevin to take charge nr two men nv this beleef, and it bez bin the most trjin period nr my life. Me and Scbell, add Fernando Wood, to whom the matter uv goin wnz referred, wuz opposed to the trip altogether. We bed bin in two sicb, and we knowd'afl about em. We bed bin baled all over the country with Johnson, and we bed expe rienced the elecnuus wich follered, and wuz shy uv it. But Horri. wuz bound to go, and .wore ef nothin else wuz done he wood go alone br bis self, and ur conrae we yeelded. We stipulated, however, that from fast to last he shood make no alloosbens to politiks that the trip should be for the purpus uv visitin the expusishen of Loois v ille and Cincinnati, and that sich remark, ez he shood make shood be purely agrikultnral of me chauikal. This Horns objected to. He wuz sure that the mere sbowin n v bisself to the populi. wood do good, but be knowed that to .peek to em ez only hecood .peek to em, wuz to fetch cm. For in stance inPenu.ylvany "Good Heaven r I sbreekt in array peak in Penn.ylvany! No, yoor EweUency! Why Pennsylvany is" I checkt myself list in time, for I wuz a agora on to remark that pennsylvany wuz a close State, and to speak there wuz roujn. The cotsmitte in charge retired for consultation. Wa was in a quandary. Experience in Noo England bad I showed how dangerous hi speekin is, asd we wuz certain that it woodent do. Finally "is tks 1 IpftcUang. only 8tatefae will pas thro wich we need feel concerned about. Ohio the'Aboliahniats will carry anyhow, and hi (peeking thro the State may perhaps lose u s'&ngTesstnau or two, but' the only bad effect will be he -will Increase their majority. In Kentucky hi apeekin will redooaa onr majority, but he cant dolt enuff to lose us the State. Make bim promise not to talk poli tiks anywhere, and not to open bis head in Pennsylvany, and let bun gush ez long. sod ez lood ex be wants to, the moment he strike. Ohio and Kentucky, where he cant hurt us much." This wuz agreed to and Horri compromised on it. Fernandy charged him pertlkeley 00 two pints, namely, to consiliate the solger element in Pittsburg, which he cood do by general remsrks, and the- nigger element in Kentucky. Gov. Randolph ur N.

Vallhfal Beview ef sar Seumr's Career Crrelerlasa KapSaed The eariaga ef the Preacwt Cauaspalaw. Dear Me. Scmnkb: Though I should be strongly induced," by tbe friendship subsisting be tween us, to avoid taking a position antagonis tical to your own, under ordinary circumstances, even if I deemed it erroneous, yet sll persoual considerations must be subordinated to the pub lic welfare .when seriously imperiled. You do not believe in silence in a crisis like the present, nor do I. In your recent letter to certain color ed citizens of Washington, you have spoken plainly, vehemeutly, aud with rhetorical ampli fication (not for tbe first time), in utter condem nation of the President of the United States; aud your advice to tbe whole body of colored voters is, that they concentrate their suflrages upon a rival candidate iu tbe person of Horace Greeley. I reviewing your letter, I propose to speak with equal plainness, and as earnestly, to coun sel my colored conntrymeu uut to follow your lead iu this matter, but, as voters, to move uni tedly for there-election ofPresideut Grant, for every consideration pertaining to their safety aud happiness, to the cause of equal rights, and to the furtherance of national peace and uuity. Iu apologizing for your delay iu answering tbe letter of inquiry referred to, you state that yon "wished to be aided by the information which time might supply." The kind of information you desired or expected to gaiu in the brief space ur seventeen aaj a, ids to cunjecturerout, lu" view of your loug avowed estrangement from tbe present Chief Magistrate, it could not have been needed to intensify your hostility to his adminis tration. Your reply is dated July 29, aud it ap pears to bav e been as carefully timed to influence the election in North Carolina on the 1st of Au gust, before anything could be done to neutral ize Its effect, as waa your- Grant indictment speech iu the Seuate to determine tbe action of the Philadelphia Convention. These coincidenc es may have been accidental, but you must not be surprised if, owing to the well known inflam mable state of your mind, a general belief obtains that you have unfairly availed yourself of oppor tunities to work a fatal division in the Bepubli- can ranks. It affords you much gratification to be singled out by your colored interrogators as " the special advocate of tbeir rights." But this is an assump tion which justice, as well as becoming modesty, should have led you to (Msclalm, eveuifit waa meant only to describe your congressional career. Similar advocates bsve from time to time stood bravely up, both in tbe Senate and in tbe House of Representatives Wilson, Hale, Wade, Chase, Giddings, Maun, Lovejoy, Julian, Palfrey, Thad deus Stevens, Gerritt Smith, and others, wbo, if not as copious and ornate in speech ss yourself, have been asnnflinching and in their torn most bitterly denounced, to say nothing of tbe thou sands of anti-slavery men and women whose lot it was to pass through the heat and burden of tbe conflict, pleading, in season aud ont of sea son, nearly a score of years before your voice was heard in support of tbeir bolycausS. You have since rendered eminent service to that cause; yoor advocacy of it has been great aud meritori ous; but to claim that it is peculiar at this late day, as though yon stood aloue, and almost single-handed, U a personal sppropristion very far removed from self-abnegation, and quite unwar ranted. The Bepublican party (tbe product of thirty years' moral and religions agitation for the over throw of slavery) has crushed a vast sectional re bellion for the erection of an independent slave empire; has emancipated four million of bonds meu aud elevated them to" the plane of American citizenship; has reconstructed the rebellious State on- a common 'Constitutional basis with universal liberty; has brought order out of cha os, geueral tranquility out of wide spresd disaf fection, unexampled prosperity out of frightful devastation; and has advanced the banner of lib erty and equality tar beyond tbe expectation or hope of any man living ten years ago. The day has gone by, therefore,, for any oue to exhibit re markable courage or couspicuity hi the advocacy of soy measure' in behalf of the rights and inter ests of our colored population, except, indeed, where the old alaveboldiug spirit'stili oaerciaeo "mastery at the South. Nor i it pertinent to the occasion to talk of their "infinite wrongs," now that they are emancipated aud enfranchised, up plied with multitudinous school and teachers, free to make tbeir owu contracts as independent laborers, protected a husbands and wires, bound together a parents and children, voting and be ing voted for, pursuing successfully all profes sional employments, steadily augmenting tbeir home comforts and laving np wealth, ocenpying station of trust and emolumcut, and having tbeir representative iu every Southern Legisla ture and ou tbe door of Congress. True, ineer taa. localities they are still subjected to many indignities, -and sometimes to horrible outrages; but these are intlirted by that class of iacurrigi ble miscreant at the Sooth who are just now in happy affiliation with yoanelf to place Horace Greeley in tbe Preskkotial chair. True, there is still throughout the cosatry a strew prejudice against social equality irrespective of color; bat this is steadily yielding, aad in many esses has ceased to operate. The special time to express sympathy for tho "infinite wrongs" of the col ored race waa whet they had few to interfere for tbeir deliverance from the. auction block; aad slave eoffle, from the slave driver's gory lash, from galling yokes aad torturing thumbscrews, from tbe langs of pursuing Moodbourd, from tbe elatchea of prowling kidaapprrs, from ineoa eeiTsbla agonies at the burning stake; aad when to "remember those in bond as bound with them" led anywhere else than to tbe high places of tbe country. And I always deeply regret, too (as I am quite sure yoa now do), teat for so ma ny years after the commencement of the strag gle to effect that deliverance, when the elements were melting with fervent beat, aad awbocratie riolsnee for the sappieaaioa ofaatUterafT dis cussion was ever j a here prevalent, not excepting In yoor own native city, yoa took no active part in that conflict, attended no antilavery gather ings, gave no risible sign otauvsiy mtersst ta rUMKcess; for the first ties bearing your pub lic testimony against slsrsry la napitng ths ao noxatiM of Texas. Whsa elected to tbe United States Senate, in 1861, yea sat nearly eight month in ths body ameteUraa ia respect to the fugitive alave bill, eliciting strong rataoastraaeca sgalnat your protracted sdessce, seeisg that, aa t2Wfceesaar of Mr. Waster,nw tfieMamwai regarded as aa important gain to tbe cause of impartial ireeaom. mur silence was ine more inexplicable, and furnished just cause-for unea siness, Jccause in a speech made by you before going 4 Washington, yon said: "Tbe subject will notmit of postponement or desilation. It is the sject, of subjects. From tbis time for ward it vili be entertained by Cougreea; it will be, aa it were, oae of tbe orders of tbe day; it cannot be passed orer or forgotten. We demand first aad foremost the instant repeal of the fugitive slave hill." Yon took your scat in the Seuate, December 1, 1651 ; it was not until the SClh of July. 1BG8, that yon rose to advocate that repeal, apologetically prefacing your re mark, by saying: "Had I attempted this duty at an earlier day, it might have been said, that aa a new comer and inexnwienccd in this scene, with out deliberation.-- Jswt!iy;- rashlr. rei. tj, I inshcil tbis qusstiou before tbe country." Sure y, no true frieud of humanity would have made such a fling, and tbe possible sneer of its ene mies were not deserving a moment's considera tion. Besides, ths discussion had beeu going on throughout tbe land ever since tbe passage of the fugitive slave bill, so that to talk of " push ing tbe question" upon the public attention was a misapplication of language. Nevertheless, once niittine Tour haud to the plow, you did not look back; once breaking tho painful spruce, you have not ceased to s(eak, with grat boldness and rare rloqiienre, fur the completjk enfranchisement of tho colored race; norhaf I failed to stand by you through evil re port a& through good re'iort, chrcriug ymi on, and Isitb iu public and in private, vindicating you from tbe unjust attacks of your pm-slavcry Inducer. My reference to the early daya of anti-slavery trial is uot to tear from your brow one of the laurels with which it is so honorably bound; lint when to mate yonrinjlufcr potential trifA'Ju- eofomf r'refort to tmrc their rota for Mr. Grtetty Mr. Greeley's organ, tho Irioaae, un truthfully proclaims you to bare been "tbe fore most enemy of human slavery, when 'abolition ists' was a term of reproach from one eud of the conntry to the other" "the best and wisest friend of tbe freeduieu in the trying years since emancipation" -'loved and trusted by the color ed race above all other men in America" justice requires that tbe deception should be exposed, snd the whole truth told. In nothing of cour age and vigilance, of zeal and fidelity iu securing equal rights fur the colored nee, has your re spected co-Senator, Henry Wilson, been outstrip ped by you ; and no member of Congress has done more for them. Nay, loug before yon were seen or known in opposition to slavery, be was actively engaged in the noble strife under the banner of immediate and unconstitutional eman cipation. Dnring thirty-six years of public life be has made tho freedom of tbe nee, so long peeled and trodden down, paramount to all polit ical considerations. Instead of ersistently shun ning anii-siavery meetings, ue was a frequent at tendant upon them, and freely' participated in tneir proceedings, aow mat tie lias been deserv edly nominated by tbe Bepnblicau party for the Vice-Presidency of tb United States, and, if elec ted, may possibly in turn of events be tbe acting President, it should be a matter of pride and gratitude on the part of colored voters to give bim their united suffrages. As he is a Massachu setts Senator, like yourself, he baa been a warm personal friend and faithful coadjutor, aud stood 1111 undauntedly in your defense when bloody vi olence sought your life, I think it is discredita ble to you that yon have not only evinced no satisfaction with tbe choice of the Kepnhlicau party In this particular, but have treated it as iuuruvthw f. rMiVtfniitililLr T jnal.. tliirt-aliuht.: IUC uioiw utHicrauic, juu uato usru p.iiiin in eu logize his political rival for the Vice-Presidency, Gntz Brown, as oue'whom Von "have known for yean aa a most determined abolitionist!" It is an immensely exaggerated claim. Put a hun dred men like Untz Drown into one scale and Henry Wilson into the other, fur anti-slavery service rendered, and for reliable friendship for our colored population, and tbey would violently kick the beam. There is no comparison to he made Iietvveeii these candidates as to trustwor thiness or meritorious character. The nomina tion of oue so openly pronuiinced on all the lead ing reformatory movements of the age a Henry Wilson is a crushing reply to the hollow charge that the Kepnbllcan party Is without a mission, aud given over to corruption. Having at last decided to support Mr. Greeley, (wby did yon linger so long, in view of bis extra ordinary virtues and sdmirablo Presidential qual ifications I) you naturally proceed to make the most of him. I. "He was born to poverty." So were millions besides. What then? Does Charles Sumner deem himself unfortunate for having been bom to competence! !. "He educat ed himself in a printing office." Thousands of others have done the tame thing; is it any rea son wby be or tbey should be put into the Presi dential chair! X "He started with nothing but industry and a character." An every day occur rence in all parts of the country. 4. "Always beneficent with the pour." Is that a nre trait, and worthy of grave consideration in determin ing whoshsll be ths next President I 5. "An honesty which no suspicion has touched," There is nothing peculiar in this. Iu tbe ordinary deal ing, of businesa life, Lo doubt, Mr. Greeley is honest; be will neither cheat nor pick your jmck et. But in his political management he ha been, and continues to be, far from upright, substitut ing a low expediency for unswerving rectitude. The great American compromiser, Henry Clay, living and dying, was alike his idol snd model. He does not find it difficult to believe that tbe end sanctifies tbe means. To adhere to a fixed principle of right, come what may, be regards as fsnsticism; to sacrifice it for a present attaina able advantage is, in bis opinion, statesmsnsbip. In the vestment of public affairs be is unrelia ble, anJwitbout vision or judgment. Tbe latest exhibitifi of his slipperiness is seen in bis high protection dodge at Cincinnati to reconcile free traders to his nomination. He eem to be quite destitute of moral sensibility-, and when occasion favon can easily be doped. He sees no good rea son why fire and gunpowder should always re main at variance, or wby light and darkness should never coalesce. It is only for Southern disloyalty to put on the guise of patriotism to be accepted as a proof of repentance and regenera tion. The Adversary, when dressed ss su angel of light, is not to be repulsed or suspected, bnt it will be a Christian act to shake hands with him, whether over a " bloody cbasm'1 or the bottom less pit! His clamor for universal amnesty, and for a total oblivion of tbe causes and consequen ce of tbe late dreadful war, is directly iu tbe interest of another Southern rebellion; aud should he be oor next President, as he has reneatMllr proclaimed his belief in the right of secession if agreed npou oy. eooiroung sectionsl majority, there iajrrason for tbe grarest apprehensions a what Ay transpire under hia administration. There Med be adduced uo rase for greater dis trust or stronger condemnation than ia found in the (act that the great body of Southern white loval la form by necessity, uot choice urn m. ger for hi success, while a large a proportion of the Southern freedmen are trembling in fear of 11, iot toej iimureufcij iciccitb wnas win ue the sad consequence to themselves. They may not, indeed, be again reduced to bondage; but short of this, there will be little regard paid to tbeir personal or political right. For this -reason it Is that they are feeling so alarmed and in dignant at the' stupidity or perfidy of any of tbeir number in voting for tbe Greeley ticket; and well may. a wide margin of allowance be made for them, if, in any case, they hare attempted to Srerent thia by personal violence. Their object 1 not to strike down freedom or choice, bnt to save themselves from a cruel betrayal. Yon can shed ao light oa their pathway; for tbsy have a much dearer vision than yoor own, and a practi cal knowledge of the men and tbjng around them that roe do aad piawtaa. Talk not tu them la dispangemeut f President Grant; tell them not of the superior virtue of Mr. Greeley! A a matter of common sense and ordinary prudence, tbey only ask tbey need only ask on which side are their deapiaen end persecutor rallying, Ku-Kluxes and all, to come to tbe sensible con cltnrioo that their safety lies in an opposite direction- Tot it is Charles Sumner wbo ha exerting all hia powers to panwsd them to the contrary!

I am an much of a Republican that I wish to sect in the Presidential chaira life long abolitionist," Here; agaiu, as iu the rase of Gratz Brown, yon make a claim that cannot be lultstantiated. Mr. Greeley never was and never assumed to be an abolition ist. He never denounced slavcholding a a star fan is or, dot advocated the immediate libera tion of tbe slaves, nor rccouimeuded a direct as sault upon slavery itself, uor discountenanced all pro-slavery compromises, nor objected torn sla very, representation iu Congress, or. to the legal rendition of fugitive slaves, nor connected him self with any anti-slavery organization, nor sanc tioned tbe abolition movemeut. He was a trim mer thmagbont "the .wfauU atruajW, notwith standing Ibat he 'wrote and published much that was serviceable to the cause of freedom. He was not even a Free-Soiler, bnt always a Henry CIsy Whig, until Republicanism supplanted the Whig and Free-Soil parties. Even after the slaves were set free nuder Abraham Lincoln's proclama tion of emancipation, he was in favor of paying those who hail rubbed theui of every right aud rioted upon tbtir unpaid toil, not lass than four fanudred millions of dollars! Far different waa the manner ill which your friend. Mr. R. W. Em erson, regarded 'this pecuniary adjustment be tween the olave master and slave: tiler the owner compensation i Fill op tho bag to tbe brim I CTbi theownerf The sU re Is owner! AndeTerwaa! Tayhiml Not so, said Mr. Greeley ; pay the motey fi the slav e masters. Aud this, too, after tbey had risen iu rebeliiuu. and involved the country in all the horrors of civil war to perietuate their dcsiMitic power, snd at the cost of ihousanda of millions of dollars! And this is your " Ilfetimn abolitionist," iMr. Sumner, "always foremost in tbe great battle for tbe rights of the colored race, and full of sympathy for them !" Why, even their coliuiza- tioii in Africa waa an agreeable device to bim; for; personally, be cherished the common preju dice against them, though certainly ready to be friend any suffering applicant, black or whitj being naturally of u lieuevolent disMwition.- it is to his credit that he was opposed to the rutro-" ductinn of uew slave Slates into the Uns", ami also to the annexation of new territory fir tb extension of slavery; nevertheless, with his com promising tendencies aud sentimental view." of peace, if he bad been in tbe Presidential chair when the rebellion broke out, the chances would have lieeu that tbe Confederate States might have dictated terms to the whole country, even to the extant of recognizing their independence, and leaving the slaves to their fate. For Mr, Greeley belongs to that class of peace makers who vociferously cry, "Peace, peace," when there is no peace. He believes in capping Vesu vius. It is exnllingly announced by hi. organ, tbe Tribune, that "a few yearsairo if Horace Greeler had ventured into Georgia or South Carolina hi wonld have Iweti hanged on tbe nearest lamp- post; now bis name is cheered to the echo in every Southern city, and the ex-elavchulders aud soldiers of the rebellion, the men who always made Southern opinion, aro unanimously in fa vor of electing bim President!" A boast like this should bo equivalent to tying a millstone around his neck to drown bim iu the depth of tho patriotic sentiment of the conntry. It is rebel cunning ami duplicity on the broadest seal. In fact, North aud South, the Greeley move ment is characterized bv tho grossest rfismuniTs)- . w-i..m -mrerw BaT rrvriOay Ot your letter now under review : "We suppose all Democrats wish to divide the colored vote, ai.d detach n part of it from Grant; and if tbey de sire the end, they must consent to endure tho means. What if Mr. Sumner docs assure tho ne gro voters that the Democratic party have bo come converts to the principle of the Republi can party f II is only adapting hi language to their apprehensions and prejudice" i.e., be Is only attempting to play Hku their credulity, nnd so secure their votei for Greeley; for tue Deinocratic parly bava not beoime convert, to the principles of the Republican part v they are simply in masquerade! It is a frank, truthful, lint audacious confession. Wilha great show of magnanimity yon any, "1 am against fauuing anrient flames into continu ed life, lam against raking iu the ashes of tho past fur coals of lire yet burning. lam against tho ivolicy of hate. Freely I accept the hand that is offered (Art thou in health, my brother 1), and reach forth my own in friendly grasp." Why this gushing display of fraternal foelingf Hare yon hitherto been animated by a spirit of ven geance? In your present amicable state of mind, wherein do yon differ from the wbide body of tbe people of the North? To insinuate that any por tion of them tbat President Grant or the Re publican party have at any previous period cherished, or do uow cherish, any wrath, or mal ice, or tuikindness, toward tbe people of tbe South, ito libel them grievously. To accuse them of wishing to " fan ancient dames Into rm tinned life," to piirsuo "the policy of bate," into bear false witness, for there I among them but one universal feeling of good will, and they de sire nothing so much aato "let bygone be by gones" iu good faith. Bnt, seeing how eontn nacinus has been tbe rebel spirit toward every needful measure for tbe restoration of nnblie or der aud tbe protection of all classes alike, they can not allow themselves to be deceived into the beliefthat.it Is no longer whst it was, but thor oughly loyal and patriotic, merely becanseof it verbal assent to any form of patriotic averment, however unexceptionable, seeing tbat it ha at this Presidential opportunity the moot powerful temptation to lie and dissemble. In order to clutcb tbe rriu of government, as of old. It wis a lie from the liegiuuia-g, aud "foil of all deceivableueas of unrighteousness," having broken the moat- solemn pledges, tnlntiplied it prejudices, and committed such abomination, ss to make the earth stand aghast. Under these) circumstances, it must not and it can not bo trusted, even though it shout for Horace Gree ley are heard in every Southern city, town, audi villager "Tbe voice is Jacob's voice, but the) band are the bands of Esau."
