Men who quarreled bit I terry upon all other political subjects were ot one heart ami ono mind when 'it came to lie a question whether tho custom established hy Washinton and i other Presidents, of retiring after ; their second term, ought to be respec ! ted or could bo nul'oly departed from. And now hero, lo wit, in the pages f this JteritvK, comes Mr. Howe, of I Wisconsin, and the part of Gen. Grant, j for whom ho appears, denounces the resolution aforesaid, impugns tbo doc- trine embodied in it, and assails tho integrity of its supporters in the most violent manner. I am asked, "I'ndor whioli king, JJoaoniao io i Rio iu my concurionco f If not, what grounds of oposition can I presumo to stand on? Believing in the resolution of the Rep. rescntatives, and dissenting from Mr. Howes article, the readers of the Jiecinc shall havo the why and whoro- lul" not becauso my individual opin ions aro worth a rush, but becauso, on a subject so important, truth ia entitled to overy man's detenco; because this I faith is shared, in our time, by the most respectable citizens of all classes, and because it is delivered to us from a past generation strongly stamped with the approbation of the best men that have lived in all the ages, A Presidont of the L nited Stales may legully be elceted and re-elected for an indefinite nnmher of terms; there is nothing in tho Constitution to forbid it; but thu two-term precedent sot by Washington, followed by his successors, consecrated by time, and approved by all the public men of the country, ripened . intu a rule us cfliciont iu its operation as if it had been a part of tho organic law. A distinguished and very able Senator of the liranl party, who uaU carcluily inquired into thu state of popular felo ing told mo in 1875 that tbe sentiment which opposed a third term was strong er than a constitutional interdict ; the people would more readily assent to a brcaidi of positive law textually in serted into the Constitution than to any disturbance of an unwritten rule which they regarded as so aucrcd. Certainly it was adhered to'by all nartios, with a fidelity which some of them did not show to tho Constitution itself, down to 1HT5, when tho first at tempt waa made to contravene it by putting tip Gen. Grant for a third elec tion. This was everywhere rccoived by the runk and tilo with mutteriugs of mutiny, and the most devoted par tisans responded with curses which if not loud were deep. 1 lie movement, as Mr. Howe tells us, was mot by solemn warnings from tho newspaper pross, by strong protests from political conventions, and finally by the resolu tion quoted at the head ol this article, which was a rebuke so overwhelming that thn supporters of tho third term candidate fled from him in tear, do sorted him utterly, and left him without a singlo voto in the nominating con vention of bis own party. Mr. Howe has no doubt that this resolution was the solo causa of Grunt's defeat in 1870. llo is equally certain that it was all wrong. However that may be, tho presont intent of Mr, Howe is to rally the routed third termers, and restore the courage of the recreants by tbo assur ance that the jobs and offices aro sale, after all. I'opulur veneration for tho men w ho bniltupour institutions is the strongest support for tbe institutions themselves. It is not only a great good intrinsically, but also the motive priuciplo to other virtues which aro indispensable iu a Government like ours. Anything, thoreforo, which unjustly detracts from their reputations ts a grevions publio injury. This applies most espe jiocially to Washington, who is ac knowledged, not only by as, but by every nation, tongue and kindred and heaven, to havo beon incomparably the greatest man that any country ever produced. An indocent criticism npon bim shocks and shames ns like blas phemy. Nevertheless, we -would not abridge the liberty of speech. A rag ing third termer has as good a right to sneer at tba Father of bia Country aa an independent Hottentot baa to beat his mother. Jefferson 'also cornea nnder review. Ilia precedent, wbolber (rood or avil. is at least "to the purpose." I n letters addressed to the Legislatives oi Ver mont, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, dated on the 10th of December, 1X07, and printed in tho Avmra at Philadel phia on the 19th of the same month. b solemnly and publicly announced to the country thai be would not disre gard the precodont of his illustrious predecessor hy accepting another elec tion. His reasons are brief, simple CLEARFIELD, and clear, like all the production- ot that master band, ana expressed in language no transparently truthful and dignified that no man of rightly con stituted mind can read the paper with out being stirred by the strongest emotions of respect and admiration for ita author. It compresses into a few sentences all that needs to bo said in liiror of tbe two term limitation, and is at the same time a perfect answer to all objections. Mr. llowe is fair enough to tuke a passago 1rom it and incorporated with his article ; it shines there lilto a piece ot solid gold set in a shnpclefls mass of lead. In these times, when the subject ia up for renowod consideration, this letter should be read again and again ; every citiaen ought to hare It by heart and teach it to bia children, write it on the lintels of bis door, bind it aa the frontlet between bia eyes, and make it the subject of his meditation day and night: ' "Dec. 10, 1S07. " To the LrtjisltiOirf of Vermont : "1 received in due season the address nf the Legislature of Vormont, bearing date thu 5th of XoTombor, 180(1, in which, with their approbation of the general course of my administration,! tbey were so good a to express their desire tout 1 would consent to ue pro posed again to tho publio voice on tbe expiration ot my present lerm oi omce, Entertaining us I do for tbe Legisla ture of Vormont those sentiment of high respect which would have prompt ed an immediate answer, I was cer- Lain, nevertheless, they would approve a delay which hud tor its object to avoid a premature agitation of tho public mind on a subject so interesting as the election of a Chief Magistrate. 'That I should lay down my chargo at a proper poriod is as much a duly as to have borne it laithlully. If some termination to tho services of tho thiol Mugistiuie be not fixed by the Consti tution, or supplied by practice, his of fice, nominally for years will in fact become for fife ; and history shows how easily that degenerates into an inheritance. Believing that a Repre sentative tiovernmenl responsible at short periods of election is that which produces the greatest sum of happiness to mankind, I loci it a duty to do no uct which shall essentially impair that principle ; und I should unwillingly be .i .1: i:-. i.-........I a me )UT!HJ1 w no, umrvni umu; luc nuuiiu pret eilunt set hy an illustrious proile ccssor, should furnish the first example of prolongation beyond the second term of olllee. "Truth also requires me to add that I am sensible of that decline which ad vancing years bring on, and, tooling physically, 1 ought not to doubt their mental effect, llappy if 1 am the first to perceive and to obey tuis adinoni tion of nature, and to solicit a retreat from cares too great for the wearied facilities of age. "For the approbation which the Leg islaturo of ermont has beon pleased to express nf the principles and meas ures pursued in the management of thoir arlwini. 1 aim einooroly tbaiokful j and should I bo so fortunate as to carry into retirement the equal approbation and good will of my fcllow-citizent generally, it will be the comfort of my future days, and will close a servico of forty years with the only reward it ever wished." Similar expressions aro scattered all through his correspondence as long as be remained in oAlco, and after he re tired to Montleollo ho continued to re peat them. Jiii conviction deepened as the years rolled on, that the princi ple ot two terms was tbe only saloono, and be constantly expressed his grati tude for the universal approval nf his conduct in adopting it. But Madison also adopted the prin ciple of his two predecessors, and .re tired at tbe end of his second term. Can nothing be urged against the father of the Constitution to depreciate bis authority or make his example worthless? Was not ho also unpatri otic and selfishly fond of bia farm ? This could be as easily said, and is not hardor to believe of him than of Wash ington. And thero was Monroe, apparently "so clear in his great oilleo" that rivalry itself shrunk from his presence, and bo was olectod a si-cmirl time without ef fort, without opposition, without one vote against him. Is it nothing lothe purpose that he acknowledged the value nf the Washington procedor.tr" Concede that be, tho most popular of Presidents, except tbe first omycould not huve got a third term if be had asked for it, then bis retirement proves not only that the two-term practice was right in his individual opinion, but that the general jndgmonl ot tho na tion was in its favor. Gun. Jackson does not got oft easily. We aro told that "there is ground for believing that if Mr. Van Jiurcn bad not secured the succession to General Jackson the latter would havo been retained for another term." This is like tbe account we havo of Jefferson's boom. It thero was any practice nf Jackson's gront predecessors in which be acquiesced with more doleronce than another, ii was thoir voluntary retirement after a proper poriod of service. He was wholly opposed to the indefinite continuance ot power in the same bund, and ho expressed his opinions on that, as on other subjects, with an omphusis which left no chance for misapprehension. The ground for believing that "in a certain contin gency be would have been retained another term" ta not anything he ever did or tbrebora to do nothing that he ever wrote or spoke nothing that ever was autboriied by him or by the party which supported him, or by tho representative of oithcr. Such is the ontonme of Mr. Howe's assault upon the line of great retiring Presidents, Irom Washington to .lack son inclusive. It must tie admitted that, if the predetermined object of the attack was to make himself ridiculous, it is a marked guccoss ; but if it was an effort in roal earnest to diminish their fame, lower their standing, or shake the confidence of tho country In their virtue, then it is the flattest fail ure in his essay and that ia saying a groat deal. 1 think it may bo affirmed with some confidence that Washington was not unworthy of the profnnnd veneration in which be is held in this country and throughout the world ; that succeed ing Presidents, when tbey followed his (ootrtcps, not only acknoweldged hie wisdom and patriotism, Lot showed their own ; that the American people of onr day, when they refused a third term to a candidate who had already served for two, wore not behaving like cowards scared hy a aenaoleaa clamor, but doing what a prudent regard lor their true interests required ; that when the Hons of Kopreacntatives, in obodionce to tho anlversal sentiment nf iu constituents, unanimously and with out distinction of party, put npon its records and published to tbe world ita solemn declaration that the example of Washington must be adhered to in the future an In the past, they did not PRINCIPLES, NOT MEN. PA., WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, 1880. enact charlatatism or repeat a voeifera- (ton, or issue a strange fulmination, or ii;cY7cA the Constitution, or tibd its tramers, or countertit history, or it( common sense, btitspoko whut tbey at least believed to be the words of truth and soberness. We are not to set np jiolitieul dog mas or Invoke a blind faith even in lbtinders nf the republic. Tho uioru authority of names, however greut, ought not to command our assent! But a fundamental doctrine, self-ovi-dcntly true, though easy to defend, is tho hardest of all things to support by affirmative argument. Wo cannot help but sympathize with tho indignation of Pitt when bo thundered out his re fusal to look at books or listen to logic in defence of English liberty. In thu matter before us, it should be plain to every "reasonable creature in esse" that lougewtinuaunoof supreme executive power in ono band is not only perilous to freo institutions, but per fectly certain to destroy them. Some fixed time there ought to bo whon tho people will not only have tho right, but exercise it, to displace their Chiot Magistrate and take another. If tbey do not possess ttis right, they aro political bond-sertants, by law ; if, holding it, they Icrcgo the uso of it, they make themselves, quoad hoc, vol untary slaves, and they soon como to be govorned ir! all things by tho will of thoir suporior. A leaso for years, ronewablo and always renowod, gives the tonant an oslato without end, and makos him lord of the free. W here the Chief M igistruto is vested, as ours is, with groat power liable to gross abuse, if there is no law or pruo tice which forbids him to be ro-eleetcd he can remain in office for life as easily as for a term. Ho has the appoint ment of all officers, the making of all publio contracts, and a voto upon all the legislation, besides the command of tho army and navy, lly an un scrupulous use of these means he can cooreo not only his horde of immediate dependents, but ho can control the corporations and become tho mas tor of all the rings, put the busi ness of all classes under his feet, cor rupt the vonal, frighten the timid, and check all ambitions but his own. llo can force the elections of every State ho desires to carry hy the bayonets of bis army. If that fails lie can order a false return, and nay for it out of the publio treasury. Tho people would soon perceive opposition to bo nscloss and accept tho situation ; elections would be as a mero matter of form as thoy wore in Homo when such consuls as Aero and Domitian were elected regularly every year under the super vision nf the pretorian guards. H these were no more than rcmoto poeibililies, prudence should guard ua against them. Hut tbey are near prob abilities ; the signs of the times warn us that the peril to our institutions is imminent ; the danger is already on the wing. It is vain to remind us that the President swears to preserve, pro tect and defend the Constitution and see the laws faithfully executed. That is true ; and It is also true thnt. it thoro be no perjury in tho caso, the Constitution, laws and libertios of the country aro sale. B'Jtlholast twenty years have given us nmple proof that on oath is not much restraint npon Presidont who is incited by ambition, rapacity, or strong party feeling to break it. It is true that this presupposes a people much degenerated and a magis trate animated mainly by the vulgar love of power for its own sake ; but exactly such a conjunction of things bas always been feared with good reason, and hence comes the desire to putevory check on that tendency to 'strong governmont which m now manifesting itself in many quarters. What is the romodyr How shall we avert the dire calamities which we are threatened' Tho answer comes from tb graves of our fathers : By the frequont election of new men. Othor help or hop for the salvation of free government thore is none tinder heaven. If history dona not teach this, wo have rend it all wrong. In tho re publics of ancient and modorn times the t hid Magistrate was entrusted with only temixvrsry power, und always went out of office at tho end ot a short period, fixed and prescribed by law or custom. It was this, indeed, which made the .tubstantial distinction betwoen them and tho monarchies around them. An unpunished trans gression of tho customary limitation wasumlormlylollowed by destruction. Everywhere and always it was tho the fatal symptom of decay the sure forerunner of ruin. When Civsar re fused to lay down his consulship, as his predecessor had done at tho end of a year, and was re elected time alter time with tho acquiescence of the Sonata und tliopooplo, all that was real in Jioman Irecdom ceused to exist. Two republics in France were brought to an end in tho sumo way. Napoleon began hy being Consul lor a term, thon was elected for life, and finally became emperor, with the powers of an absoluto dewpot, Tho last Bona parte was President for lour yearn, was re elected lor ten, and ended like his n tide, in grasping tho imperial crown "May this bo washed in tho Lethe and forgotten V Shall these lessons be lost? Shall the lamp which guided our forefathers be extinguished ? Shall the broad daylight nf all human ex- ficnenca bo closed tip In a littlo dark antern manufactured! at Miiwatikco ? I think this cannot he dono : "the eternal verities" aro against it Tho most powerful Inird-lormcr may as well try lo blow out the sun, as ho would a tallow candlo, with the breath of his mouth. Moreover, tho two-term principle ought to be adhered to by us and by those who come allor us (if thoro were no othor reason), simply because it was tho practico of those who wont before us. It is to the traditions of the fathers that wo owe onr civilr.a tion. 1 do not expect anything 1 can any to be received as a vindication of tbe two term rule. 1 Nor Is It necessary. All tho support it requires was long ago furnished by another, the latcbet ot whose shoes 1 am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. Jefferson, the stainleaa citir.cn. the sterling pa triot, tho nnequalled statesman at onoe tbe greatestapostloand the truest Dronhet tbat human freedom over had gave bis judgment not only at the time he acted upon tho rule, but ex pressed bis convictions after they were slrengtnonca ny many years oi ranee tion, . Tba practical objoct ol Mr, Howe's article is to maae lien, tn-ant i'rosi dent for another term. It is not for an abstraction that he denounces the two-term precedent and vilifies tho Springer resolution. Tho rulo might stand if Grant could he electod without breaking it down. But Mr. Howe thinks that th superiority of bis can didate Is so very great that all author)- REPLBlGli i ' ....... ties which oppose hire should be dis - reguided, and ho supports this opinion by assertions so CJitiuvuirunt that we only wonder how any man in his sober senses could have mado them. 0 A third term for Grunt does not mean a third term only, but any num ber of terms that ho chooses to demand. The imperial method of currying all ,.l,.,.t m,,J I,.- r... I.,-.... .... declaring them to bo curried when they are not, is to be permanently substituted for tbcsyslem nf free, popu lar choice. . . Tho figure of Grunt standing with the seal of primacy on tho mountain top, und looking down on the inhub ita ii Is of the pluin below, gives a meas ure uf the duration which bis syco phants flutter him with tho hope of attaining. They urge the necessity of a strong Government almost in the very words used by tho adherents of Ciisar and tho twoNapoIcons. Strong government, in theii sense, inouns weak luws and a strong ruler ; in other words, a substantial monarchy, poworlul in its scorn of all legal re ! Btraints. " f ? ' ::i f; Alien lioiiiocrntic l.epiiblicuii sys tem of Government honestly adminis tered by BgcntB of tho people's true choice; a Government such us ours was intended to be, with thu powers of tho Federal Government, the rights of the States, and the liberties of tho people so harmoniously adjusted that each may check thu excesses ot the other such u Govern men I. scrupu lously administered within its consti tutional limits, is, without doubt, the choicest blessing that God, in bis lov ing kindness, evor vouchsafed to uny people. ( )n the other hand, it is quite as sure that tho lulsc aUminislration of a Government theoretically free, which trust, according to terms prescribed with unmistakable clearness, and then dishonestly breaks tho engagement such a Government, so conducted, is an unspcukablo curse. It is not only an oppression, but a most demoralizing cheat; a basu imposture, more degrad ing to tbo Nation which submits to it than tho heaviest yoko that despotic tyranny can fasten on it neck. If, hcrclore, u constitutional and Ii'l'uI administration of our National all'airs bo out ol the question it our only choice lies between a perverted liopub he and a Monarchy then stop this hypocritical pretense of free Govern ment, and givo us a King. And who shall be our royal muster but Grant? lhat bo will serve tho turn as well as if not butter than another, will, I think, be admitted by all who attend to tho reasons now presenllyto beonunieialcd. In tho first place, a new monarch (that is, one who has no hereditary claims) ought to be an approved good soldier, with skill loonforeoobodiunco; otherwise bis sway could not lust long over peoplo disposed to be tuibulent. All, or nearly all, tho founders of royal lines havo been military men from Ni in rod downward, it is vain to deny that General Grant's reputation for military talent is well founded. It is more than doubtful if any officer ol our army could havo subjugated tho rsoulh so completely oven with all Grant's ail vantages, or taken so many detents and still won a complete vic tory in llio end. It is not, however, what ho has done, but what he has shown himself callable of doing, that gives him his leading qualification for mastcrdom now, 1 lie tear that goes before bim will make actual violence nnnccssury. His strength of charac ter will frighten bis subjects into sub mission where a weaker mini would bo compolled to butcher them lor insur rection. General Grant is a good baler of those who thwart him, which is natil- ral andiiol a serious lauil ; but ho is not fiercely vindictive, and his career ackiiowledL'oa the riir its of t ho neon o ll,u """" "UMl luu """", .iuuii m .mj o...;i imi much that and yet continually treuds them in- mme werrt 1 8' IJunvin .

For centuries past the potentates of continental Europe, wilh only low exccplions, havo hud habits as com so as his and be is wholly free from somo terrihlo vices to which many of them wore addicted.

What wo call the greediness of Gen eral Grunt for the wuges of official in iquity would bo entirely proper In tbo supremo ruler nf an absolute govern ment. It is not bribery lo buy thu favor of a King with presents, ami a King is not guilty of stealing when bo helps hlmsell to public money without legal rights. it looks to us bko a terrible outrage for a President to bnvo himsolf repre sented nt a State election by tho bay onets of bis standing army In install Governors lhat were rejected at tbe polls, to tumble tho chosen Legislature of a f ree State out of its hall, to pro cure the fabrication of false returns und force it on the people. But Gen eral Grant's lawlessness would be luw ful in a country governed by tho mere will of a personal sovereign. Where there is no law thore can be no tranr- gression. But while General Grant baa somo qualities which would make bim a tul erablo King, and none that would malic him an unendurnbly bad one, he is not at all the kind of person that is needed as President of the United States on the assumption lhat our system nf Government is to be continued. 1 think it is to bo continued. Unlike Mr. O'Conor, I believe that tho strag gle to got It honestly administered is not hopeless. We ore not yet reduced to the necessity of choosing between ltepublio wholly corrupt and a mon archy founded in pure force.
