THE HA1LY EVENING TELEGRAPH rillLADELPHIA, TUESDAr, DECEMBER G, 1870.
3k PUBLISHED EVER T AFTERNOON (8UHDAT3 XCIII'TKO), IT THE EVENING TELEGRAPH BUILDING, No. 108 8. THIRD STREET, PHILADELPHIA. TUESDAY, DECEMBER ft, IS70. THE MESSAGE OFT IE PRESIDENT. What;? kr may be the fate of the multitude of publia documents whioh aooompaay Presi- dent Grant's second annual message to Con gress, the message itself has doubtless re oeivoil by this time the full attention that its importanoe, real or imaginary, demands. To ayoid tuo possibility of premature publi cation, the President refused t3 entrust the precious docnnaent to the publio printer's hands, and the representatives of the press were kept at a distance until it was actually transmitted to both houses of Congress. This made it necossary to forward the message to all parts of the coun try by tolegraph, and it has doubtless suffered somewhat by the procoss, as far as smoothness is concerned, by reason of the yrent haste that was demanded to satisfy the anxiety of the publio. But, making due allowauco for this unavoidable diflloulty, the document i.s a plain, sensible, straightforward, unpretentious, and well-written one, and will compare favorably with similar state papers emanating from the Executive Man sion in times past. Happily for the people of the United H tat oh, the country Las now so far recovered from the depression and disorganization re nulling from 'the war of the Rebellion, that Prowidout Grant was able to devote the greater portion of his message to our rela tions with foreign countries and questions'of an international character, and that without ignoring, except in a few instanoes, home questions which demanded his attention. Thero oould be no more striking illustration of the elasticity and perfection of our system of government than this circumstance. Only five years have elapsed since the last army of the Southern Confederacy laid down its arms, and within that brief period the great work of rehabilitation has been fairly accom plished, the only thing remaining to render the wotk complete being the election of Representatives to Congress in a single State. Wneu Georgia is fully restored to her normal position in the Union, the task will be accom plished, and, as the President aptly remarks, there will then be "no reason why we should not advanoo in national prosperity and happi ness as no other nation did after so protracted and devastating a war." TUB MESSAGE AND THE WEST. BENTS POLIO Y. A i.i none u we are happily almost re lieved finally and forever of the vexed ques tion of reconstruction, the great burden of debt which is the most pertinent legacy of the rebellion remains; and it is impossible for either the President or the peop'e to ignore it and tho necessities to which it gives rise. The paramount necessity of meeting promptly all the demands made upon the national trea sury by tho nation's creditors is the basis of the only national policy that oan be adopted by tho Government with safety. The debt of the nation must ' be paid, interest and prin cipal, dollar for dollar, as it falls due. Re pudiation, in any of its forms or phases, is so utterly repugnant to the American people that no demagogue can hold his own on such a platform. The existence of this debt will render imperatively necessary a large revenue for years to come, and the manner of raising this revenue is to be the point on which the paramount national issues of the next quar ter of a century mubt hinge. Every question become subservient to the one grand ques tion of a revenue sufficiently large to main tain intact the financial credit of the coun try. The most rigid economy on the part of every branch of the public service is im peratively demanded by the exigencies of the national situation, and on this point the President takes deoided ground. Another position which he assumes is the necessity for "a reduction of interest account," by whioh, we take it, he refers to such a con solidation of onr forms of indebtedness as will reduce the annual interest on the debt to the lowest figure consistent with national honesty and national safety. "Revenue reform," says, the President, "if it means this, has my hearty support." But the President, in common with the people of the oountry, is in doubt as to what is meant by the demagogues who are clamoring for "reve nue reform," and he protests earnestly and forcibly against any attempt to cripple the resources, industries, and credit of the coun try by the pernicious doctrine of free trade, or the attempt to impone all the burdens of the war upon the people by direct taxation, for the benefit of foreign manufacturers. In the closing paragraph of the message, the President enunciates clearly what ha re gards as the true policy of the country. It is satisfactory, as far as it goes, but there is cause for regret that he does not dwell with more force and detail upon the absorbing question of administrative reform. He de u an da a "reform ii the whole civil' service of the country," but gives us no justification of the neglect on his part to attempt eerioasly it inauguration; be advocates a reduction of taxation, "so arranged as to afford relief to the greatest number," but, unhappily, has not a word to say against the obnoxious and inquisitorial income tax, the continuance of which he again endorses by bis silence on the subject. On these two points the country will justly express dissatisfaction, and de mand, before many days, decided action ,by Congress, even at the expense of a rupture. more or less serious, with the Executive. It cannot be denied that the course of the adiuinintralion has not received the full en- dwrsoment of the party which placed it in power, and the result of the reoent Congres sional elections has given an unmistakable evidence of the dissatisfaction whioh prevails. President Grant stands on perilous ground. He has failed, In many raspeots, to meet the expectations whioh were justly formed at the beginning of his administration; and this failure has been, in great measure, the result of the shiftless policy which he has pursued in the matter of the civil service. From the heads of departments down to the most in significant positions, he has not selected, or cauRed to be selected, a class of men that merits and receives the confidence of the peeple. He has been too vindictive, has dis played too much petty animosity, has too often attempted to strengthen himself by un wise removals and improper appointments. But it is not too late for him to rally around himself the honest masses of the great party which elevated him to power, and the serious inroads made upon the Republican majority in the next Congress by Democrats, free traders, and so-called revenue reformers, make it necessary for the President forth with to cease his warfare upon any portion of the voters who placed him at the head of the Government. The Demooratio party, en couraged by dissensions in the Republican camp, is already rallying for the Presi dential oampaign of 1872. In the preliminary skirmishes, our antagonists have gained serious advantages. The mission of the great Republican party is not yet at an end; it is the real party of progress, the true party of "moral ideas." By a united front alone can it stem the adverse tide whioh has already set in, and a united front it is very far from presenting at present. For the dis sensions which prevail, the President is in ereat measure responsible. It is around him that we must rally, if we would maintain our own. Therefore, wo ory a truce to all bickerings among ourselves ! Let us have peace ! THE NATIONAL FINANCES. Tbk Roport of the Secretary of the Treasury is a methodical, business-like document, which will have a good influence in maintain ing public confidence in the financial condi tion of the country and in inspiring the belief that no hazardous experiments are likely to be attempted at the present sossion of Congress. Mr. Boutwell's statements and recommendations are, in a geueral sense, so satisfactory that he leaves little to desire except an advocaoy of the abolition of the relics of the odious income tax; and if he had inserted a brief paragraph favoring this just reform his report would havo been a model document. Although the attempt to fund tho debt at a reduced rate of intorest under the act passed at the last sossion of Congress has failed, for obvious reasons, the national credit has in no wise been in juriously affected by this failure. A nation that appropriated a surplus of more than $100,000,000 to the payment of the principal of its debt last year,- and that will have a surp'us of nearly $70,000,000 this year, in spite of large reductions of taxation, rapidly increases its credit by such exhibits; and if Congress authorizes the proposed new loan of $:500, 000,000 at five per cent., the interest to be paid quarterly, there can be little doubt that this will be taken, even if a continuance of European distractions confines the bidders exclusively to citizens of our own country. Of the general position of the publio debt the Secretary gives a graphic and satisfac tory view in his statement that "$800,000, OOO will remain unpaid, existing either in the form of Treasury notes in circulatioa without interest, or in bonds owned by the banks and held as security for the redemption of their notes, and that only about $ 1 ,000, 000,000 of the debt is subject to payment." Consider ing the magnitude of the obligations created by the war, the fact that they have already been narrowed down to these proportions af fords a wonderful proof of the wealth, wis dom, and integrity of the American people. THE MESSAGE ON OUR FOREIGN RELATIONS. Thk President's Message takes a firm, de oided, and dignified stand on the many com plicated questions whioh arise out of our re lations with foreign powers. Most of these demand more than the passing notice which we can now give them. The San Domingo question, especially, is one which merits most serious attention on the part of Con gress and the people. As this matter stood at the close of the last session of Congress, the whole thing looked very much like a "job." Bat the arguments which the President brings to bear upon the advisa bility of acquiring a permanent foothold in the West Indies are extremely powerful, and as it is possible for the United States to ob tain possession of San Domingo without being outrageously swindled, we trust that his recommendations will receive the attention they merit. On the Alabama claims question the Presi dent has but little to say. The issue is at a stand-still, and the action of Great Britain is awaited before any decided movement is made. But the oountry will not look with favor upon the President's recommendation that the Government buy up all the private claims against Great Britain. There is no necessity for'auch a course, there is no good precedent for it, and the imperative necessity for curtailing our national expenses in every possible way will not permit its contempla tion. ADMIRAL PORT MR AS 'A LETTER WRITER. Aimikal Poktek has made an addition to the long list of worthies who have damaged themselves by indiscreet letters. His official position at the present moment is peculiar. He has been considered the confidential naval friend of the President, and is popularly cre dited with the nnusnal honor of being able to run the Navy Department according to his private notions. After the death of Admira Farragnt a new seal was placed upon his lofty pretentions by his appointment as successor of the heroic captor of New Orleans and Mobile, and if this appointment U seat to the Senate and oonfirmed by that body, Porter will gain permanent possession of the highest of naval positions. But alas for the vanity of human ambition t At this oriticat junc ture old Grandfather Welles is oruel enough to'send to the mischievous New York World a letter written by Porter, dated January 21, 18('.", shortly after the captnro of Fort Fisher, whioh contains sundry ill-natured complaints of the oonduot of Grant. It gives full Tent to the spirit of jealousy cherished by a portion of the navy against the army. It alleges that Grant "is always willing to take th credit when any thing is done ;" that he did not properly ac knowledge the assistance rendered by the navy in capturing Vicksburg; that "he wants magnanimity," and "is so avaricious, as regards fame, that he will never, if he can help it, do justioe" to the Navy Department; that he had acted unhandsomely in connection with the FortFishor affair by suffering Butler to have anything to do with it; that his course provos that he would sacrifice his best friend rather" than lot any odium fall on Lieutenant-General Grant," and that he will take the credit for the final capture of Fort Fisher, "when he deserves all the blame for tho fiist failure to take the place." When this letter first appeared it was an nounced by the publication of a series of extracts from Porter's private diary, which were produced to prove that Porter thought Grant and Sherman not only great generals, but very good men, etc. This, however, does not seem to have been sufficient, and the Admiral now acknowledges, over liis own Laud, the gonuiusnoss of tho letter to Welles. aud explains it by the assertion that at the time it was written his mind and body were ha rassed by extraordinary fatigue, and that he has since entirely forgotten that he had ever given utterance to such petulant sontimonts The necessity of this explanation is mani fasted by the statement it contains, that Grant was so unfavorably irapr3ssed by the "World's publication as to declare that it made him lose faith in human nature; and we can scarcely wonder that it lowered the Presidential , faith in candidates for first-class naval honors. It remains to be seen what will be the upshot of the World's disclosure; but it would not be surprising if it should lead either to For ter's rejection by the Senate, or to an aboli tion of the grade of Admiral in the navy, or to both, and Porter stands a fair chance of losing by the maladroit labors of his pen the honors he had so nearly secured by the achievements of his sword. TJ1E MESSAGE ON OUR CANADIAN NEIGHBORS. The President uses very decided language in regard to our difficulties with Canada on the subjects of the fisheries and the free naviga tion of the St. Lawrence river; and we believe that this portion of his message will be cor dially endorsed by the whole oountry. There is a point where patience ceases to be a virtue, and it is certainly high time that our Govern ment should adopt a line of policy that will settle the points of controversy with our semi-British neighbors in a manner that will prevent any reasonable pretext for difficulty in the future. The President correctly de signates the Dominion Government as a semi independent but irresponsible agent. It has the power to inflict injury upon us, while we are obliged to apply for redress in London instead of Ottawa a position of affairs that is likely to be a source of trouble so long as it con tinues; and it is a serious ' questidn whether the United States, for their own protection, have not a right to demand that the Dominion of Canada shall either be erected into a com pletely independent State or else that it shall be deprived of the power of exciting the animosities of its neighbors and then appeal ing to the mother country for assistance in case it is threatened. In nearly every con troversy the United States have had with Great Britain concerning her claims upon this continent, we have, in the interest of peace, yielded more than dignity and justice demanded, and it is time now that our rights were . asserted in a more positive manner than they ever have been before. In regard to the fishing dispute there is no difficulty whatever, except such as has been created by the Canadians themselves, and the whole matter oould be settled satisfactorily if the Dominion Government or Great Britain were disposed to carry out the provisions of the convention of 1818 in good faith. In order to compel the United States to renew the reciprocity treaty that was discontinued on account of Canadian bad faith during the Rebellion, the "Bluenoses" have revived the fishing dispute solely for the purpose of annoying us and forcing us to come to terms, and, for the same reason, they have attempted to control the navigation of the St. Lawrence river in such a way as to impede our com merce. The President says plainly that in case any attempt is made to confiscate United States fishing vessels under the Canadian statute authori zing such proceeding in event of trespass, under their interpretation of the convention of 1813, it will beoome his duty to take such steps as may be necessary to protect the rights of the citizens of the United States, This language is certainly plain enough for the most obtuse "Bluenose" or "John Ball" to'nnderstand, and the President, in using it, we are convinced expresses the sentiments of a large majority of the people of the United States. In regard to the free navigation ef the St Lawrence the President demonstrates that, not only by treaty but by recognized inter . national law, the United States are entitled to use the river as a highway without impedi ment, and that the Dominion authorities have no right to interfere with the navigation of our vessels except by such police regulations aa are absolutely necessary for their own pro tection. We have more than once alluded to the necessity for the free navigation of the St. Lawrence being at the command of the i United States, and to ensure this the whole of the territory south of the river ought to be in our possession. This is an even more important subject than the fishery question, and the President has done well in alluding to it if only for the purpose of attracting to it the attention it deserves and exciting dis cussion that may lead to important results. SO V Til CAROLINA FRAUDS. Hon. C. C. Bowrw, Republican M. C. from the Charleston district, South Carolina, and the regular Republican candidate at the late elections, has furnished the Washington cor respondent of the New York Tribune a sorry picture of j carpet-bag management of elec tions. JMr. Bo wen was opposed by De Zarge, a colored irregular candidate, who has been returned as elected by some G00 majority, and Mr. Bowen will contest the seat. His report of the ballot-stuffing by the election officers, if approaching the truth, shows that South Carolina is Riven over as a prey to anarchy, and needs rather more regeneration and watching than New York city or Norfolk. The following is Mr. Bowen's statement as given In the Tribune: 'lie bats that the worst election frauds In New York are not to be compared with those perpetrated In every part of Sooth Carolina. The SUie election law. whioh was enacted last March, affords every facility to dishonest managers and supervisors of lection. ISf its provlHlous the Governor is directed to appoint lu each ooaaty a supervisor ef elections, who, in tarn, appoints three manager in each elec tion precinct. After the polls are closed, the mana gers are aiioviea to nave iue custody or the ballot boxes for three days, at the end of whioh time they must make a return. In uiany cases la Siuu Caro lina the manngers of election were candidates for the legislature or for county offices, and could, therefore, during the three dajs that the ballots were In their possession tlx them to salt themselves. Mr. Bowen says that he can prove that In many pre cincts the ballots oast by the peoplo vrare taken from the boxes by the mauagcrs, and others substituted for them before the count was made, and that when It was found that even then their opponents would not oe nereatea, moy scraccneu tno names or tho Utter from tho ballots In other districts, aud sutmi- tuted those of their own candidates. The only place In South Carolina where au honest election wa Held was Charleston, aud there it took place uuder th f rovlHions of the new United States election law. n 186, Mr. Howen's majority la Charleston was about looo. This year it was more than 8000. and yer, so great were the frauds in the country, that he was 'counted out.' lie estimates Lis rightful ma jority at about 10,00. lie thinks the Republican majority in the Mtate Is about soon. The majority returned Is about 80,000. The people of Mouth Caro lina are very indignant that they have no redress, and Mr. liowen doubts if the State will go Kepuhli- caa at the next election."
