The Republican Platform.
The National Republican Party of the United
States, assembled in National Convention, in the
city of Chicago. on the twentieth day of May, IHtX
make the following declaration of principles: *
First- We congratulate tlieeountrv on the assur
ed successs ol the reconstruction policy of Congress,
as evinced by the adoption by u majority of the
States lately in relielliou. of constitutions securing
equal civil and political rights to all. It is the duty
ol the government, lo sustain these iijtitutions and
to prevent the people of such States Irom being re
mitted to a state ol anarchy.
Second—The guarantee by Congress ot equal suff
rage to all loyal men at the South wt.s demanded by
every consideration of public safety, of gratitude,
and ot justice, and must tie maintained. The whole
question of suffrage in the loyal Slates properly be
longs to the people of ihost States.
Third—We denounce:U1 lorms or' repudia ion as a
national crime. T^e national honor requires the
payment of the public indebtedness iu the utmost
good faith, to all creditors at home and abroad, not
only accoiding to the letter, but to the spirit ol tlie
law under which it was contracted.
Fourth—It is due to the labor of the nation that
taxation shall be equalized and reduced as rapidly
as the national faith shall permit.
Fifth—Tlie national debt, contracted as it has
been tor the preservation of the Union for all time
to come, should be extended over a fair period for
redemption, and It i< the dutv or Congrtss to reduce
the rate ol interest thereon whenever it can l»e hon
estly dene.
Sixth—'The best pohey to diminish our burden of
debt, is to so improve our credit, that capitalists will
seek to loan us money at lower rates of interest than
we now pay, and must continue t > pay so long as re
pudiation partial or total, open or covert, is threat
ened or suspected.
Seventh—The government of the United States
should be administered with the strictest economy,
anil the corruptions which have l»een so shamefully
nursed and fostered by Andrew Johnson, call loudly
for a radical reform,
Eighth.—We profoundly deplore the untimely and
tragic death of Abiaham Lincoln, and regret the ac
cession of Andrew Job nso.i to the presidcu-y; who
has actad treacherously to the people who elected
him and the cause he was pledged to support; who
has ururpe 1 high legislative and judicial functions:
who has refused to execute the laws; who has used
his high office to induce other officers to ignore amt
violate the laws; who lias employed bis executive
powers to render insecure the proi»ert/, the peace,
the liberty and tlie life of the citizen; who lias
abused th^mrdoning power; who has denounced
tlie nation* legislature as unconstitutional; who
has persistently and corruptly resisted by every
j measure in bis power every proper attempt at the
reconstruction 01 the States lately in rebellion; who
has perverted the pullic patronage into an engine of
wholesale corruption, anti who has justly been im
peached for high crimes and misdemeanors anti prop
ly pronounced guilty thereof by a vote ot 35 Sena
tors.
Ninth—The doctrine of Great Britain and other
European powers, that because a man is once a sub
ject he is always so, must be resisted at every haz
ard by i he Uuited States as a relic of the feudal
times, not authorized by the law of nations and at
war with our t ational honor and independence.
Naturalized citizens arc entitled to be protected in
all their rights ot citizenship as though they were
native born; and no citizen of the United Stales,
native or naturalized, must be liable to arrest and
imprisonment by any foreign power for aria done or
words spoken in this country; and if they are so ar
rested and imprisoned, it is tlie duty ot tlie govern
ment to interfere in tlieir behalf.
Tenth—Of all who wore faithful in the trials of
the late war there were none entitled to more special
honor than tlie 1 rave soldiers and seamen who en
dured the hardships of campaign aud cruise and im
perilled their lives in the service of the country.
The bounties and pensions provided by law for these
brave <!efenders are obligations never to be forgot
ten; the widows and orphans of the gallaut dead
are the wards of the people—-ft sacred legacy be
queathed to the nation’s fostering care.
Eleventh—Foreign emigration, which in the past
lias added so much to the wealth, development and
resources, and the increase of power to this nation,
tlie asylum ot the oppressed of all nations, should
be fostered and encouraged by a liberal and just
policy.
Twelfth—This convention declares itself iu sympa
thy with all the oppressed peoples which are strug
gling for their rights.
Unanimously added, on motion of Hen. Schurz .
Resolved, That we highly commend the spirit of
magnanimity aud forbearance with which men who
have served in the Rebellion, but who now irankly
and honestly cooperate with us iu restoring the peace
ot the country and reconstructing the Southern
Siate governments u]>on the has s of Impartial Jus
tice aud Equal Bights, arc received back into the
communion of the loyal people; and we favor the re
moval of the disqualifications and iestiictious imp-us
ed upon the late Kebe's in the same measure as their
spirit of lovalty will direct, and as roav be consistent
~-nn cne satefy ot the loyal people.
Resolved. That we recognize the great principles
laid down in the immortal Declaration ot Independ
ence, as tlie true foundation of democratic govern
ment; and w’e hail with gladness every effort towards
making these principles a living reality on every
inch ofAmerican soil.
No Hope for the I.oyal People of South
Carolina if Mcymonr is Klecled.
The following interesting letter was ad
dressed to a well known gentleman residing
in this city, and will be fonnd to present in a
forcible manner the condition in which the
South will be left in the event of a Democrat
ic success:
Lexington, S. C. Sept. 7,1868.
Dear Sir.—I had the honor of addressing
you several times during the spring and sum
mer of 1867, on the subject of reconstruction.
Since your return from Europe I have not
renewed my cofrespomlence, from the fact,
that my hands have been more titan full|per
fecting and carrying out the work here at
home.
But a great struggle is still before the peo
ple of this nation, and let no one forget That
eternal vigilence is the price of liberty!” The
people of Maine, no less than the people of
South Carolina, are intensly interested in the
result. The rebellion which yielded at the
poiut of the bayonet, as a last resort, appeals
to the ballot, and expects to secure by fraud
and intimidation all that |it lost by the fail
ure of armed force. Democracy in the South
means simply rebellion and war! Under the
garb of devotion to the Union, “as it was”
and as defenders of the constitution of our
fathers, a host of rebel leaders enter the po
litical arena, and plead for Democracy as a
synonym of the “lost cause”. They claim the
right and the power to vote themselves their
long coveted places, in order to dictate terms
to their conquerers. 'the magnanimous con
querers ol the rebellion have given the rauk
and tile of the rebel army the right of the
elective franchise, justly iorleited by the
bearing of arms against the government, and
now they are preparing their ballots to vote
out ot existence the very laws which restore
to them their forfeited right to vote and at the
same time repudiate the oaths taken by them,
as voters to obey the very laws, which they
thus propose to obliterate. Thus sworn to
obey, they nevertheless swear that they will
never submit to “negro rule.”
South Carolina is one of the lew States
that have a colored majority of voters, and,
although the ex-dominant race, in its greed
alter gain, when this majority represented
wealth and capital, pre erred their presence
to that of poor white men, they do not
feel ashamed now to clamor for a “white
man’s government.” Once they supposed
that slavery could be made perpetual, and
then a negro was letter than a poor white;
but now there is no room for negroes, and
less still for white men wiio recognize their
political rights, aud stand by them in defence
of the government. It is not the fault of
the United States that South Carolina has a
colored majority. The chivalry preferred to
fill the State with a colored and ignorant
race rather than a white and intelligent
one; and now being satisfied jthat it was
a great blunder on their part, are, child
like, tired of the bauble, and are clamor
ing for another to fill the "aching void.
The fact is, the Itebel Democracy tully
determined at the outset never to accept the
conditions prescribed by Congress. and in
many of the counties so strong was this rebel
sentiment, that no white man dared to accept
office on the Republican platform. Thus
scorned by their “best friends,” alter begging
them to concede to them their rights and act
as rulers for them, ol course the colored people
took the offices for themselves, and have done
the best they could for the whole people. It
every white man in South Carolina had cor
dially accepted the terms imposed by Con
gress in the restoration of the States, in good
faith, I doubt not a large majority of white
men would now control the .egisiature ol the
State. Nor does it follow that majorities al
ways rule a State. Wealth, education, and
experience must share the legislation of every
community and State, and these are all in
the possession of the whites. The colored
roan is no match even ior the disfranchise
Rebel in point of power, and if not aided by
loyal capital must soon go under. A deter
mined effort is now being made to separate
the white element from the Republican party
—the Rebels feeling well assured if that can
be done, there is then a good chance to rout e
the whole loyal element of the Slate.—
Threats, every species of intimidatiou and
bribery are employed to carry out this pro
gramme, and its effect has been felt ayain»t
the interests of the nation. The white lead
ers are proscribed beyond precedent, which
amounts to social ostracism, it is next to
impossible tor aii avowed, well known, true
Republican to ride on some railroads without
being grossly insulted by drunken rowdies,
who claim to be Democrats and swear eter
nal hostility to existing laws, and the govern
ments purporting to enact them. In the
view of the great majority of these Rebel
Democrats to be au avowed Republican is
simply to be the most degraded of all human
creatures, and as fully entitling the “rene
gade” to baiter or ballet as may be most con'
veuient, bidding God speed to the praise
worthy act.
The leading idea now being forced upon
the Northern mind is, that the whites are
suffering terribly UDder “negro rule.” The
tacts are precisely the reverse The legisla
ture ol South Carolina bus just voted a home
stead ol the valus of one thousand dollars, to
every man now occupying one of that value,
and has secured it against ail debts, except
tor the homestead itself. The colored man
has thus yieen the poor white man a home
in spite ol the demands of his relentless cred
itor, while at the same time he himself has
nooe. It has discriminated so closely in Its
system of taxation that all are equally assess
ed to support the government—not sparing
monopolists, and a certain class of capitalists
heretofore well nigh exempt from the exac
tions ol an ill-dehned system. The bill for
choosing jurors is also a decided improve
ment on the old plan, and although it makes
all men liable to discharge the duties of the
juror, it is so carefully guarded that only the
most intelligent and virtuous will be selected
for the work. So of the election laws which
are truly Democratic as looking to “the gov
ernment of the people, by the people, for the
people.” And yet I doubt not all these inno
vations aud improvements are continually
cursed as vile usurpations, eminently detri
mental to the white race, and the permanent
prosperity of the State.
The rebel Democracy are evidently expect
ing another conflict and preparing lor it.
Within the last month, fifty revolving rifles
per week hare been brought into Columbia
by the different members of that party, and
the mutterings and threats heard on every
side show what may be the result.
Only last week the mail carrier from this place
to Mt. Willing, Edgefield county, was shot by a
concealed assassin, which resulted in his death
the second day alter. The deceased was a
colored man, of most excellent character, po
lite and affable in the extreme, and yet he
was slain for no crime except that of being a
Republican, and carrying the mail for a Re
publican contractor.
I assure you that there is no hope for the
loyal people of the South il Seymour and
Blair are elected. Those who will not sup
port the claims of the rebels, will have to
leave the State, and the sooner they do it the
better.
If the loyal blood which yonr people pour
ed rfut in defence of the Union, and the su
premacy o( national la j, was shed for the
purpose of handing over the government to
the very men who inaugurated the rebellion,
then let your people cast their votes against
the noble party which saved the government!
pave the way for their own enslavement to
rebel dictation, and thus forfeit the respect
aud esteem of all the patriots throughout the
world.
It cannot be that the people ol Maine are
so lost to their past glorious record, to their
country and themselves, as to commit snch a
disgraceful and humiliating blunder, and
while South Carolina will surely cast for
Grant and Colfax, let it not be said that
Maine has ever been less loyal and devoted.

—A man fond of antitheses says, rather than
a cot in the valley he loves he would prefer a
French bedstead on the mountain ho hates.
—Napoleon is making so many French Sen
ators of small calibre that the French are be
ginning to call the Senate the “Second Hotel
des luvalides.”
— Base ball clubs are rivalling each other in
inventing quaint and ludicrous titles. Two o(
these organizations in Rochester are known
respectively as the “Early Birds” and the “Un
fortunate Worms.”
—A gentleman who owns one of the most
magnificout estates in the suburbs of Cincin
nati, on leaving the city for the seashore, gave
his gardener orders that twice each week all
the roses on his place should te gathered and
sent to St. Luke’s Hospital. So during the
summer the patients have all the time had
spread before them for their gratification,
some of the rarest of flowers.
—The Ecclesiastical Court, convened for the
trial of the Rev. Mr. Hubbard, of Rhode Is
land, for alleged violation of the canons of the
Protestant Episcopal Church, is now in ses
sion in Providence. Tne presentment of the
