The hii-tory of the Republican party is em phasized by treachery and bath faith. At the outset of iU car.-er :t gave an earnest of thiB in t!u declarations of a purpose as to the ad ministration of the government, purely na tional, and that no attack upon the domestic institution of th? rou h was meditated. This was an infamous falsehood upon it face, for a cardinal principle of the party that elecie.l Lxi.oln was the downfall of slavery. Mr. Sew aid a-setting a conflict of system that lorced an irrepressible issue of slavery or freedom. Subsequently and pend ing hostilities bet wet n the States, a resolu tion was passed repeating the declaration of non-partisan or sectionil hostility to the south, and at the c!ose of the war Mr. Lin coln, who, let it be lemembereJ, was ever true to the ccnseivative precepts that actuated him from tho first, f peaking for his party as well as for liis adm'i.istration, gave posi tive a-suraccei that pino? the war had ended, ihe sout!n?rn States were nit to be treated as conquered irjvincftr, but as commonwealths restored to th ir places in the Union unim p;iirrfd in any of their rights. Murdered by an in-an; mar, his sutcessor Andrew Johnson vainly (-trove to enforce the legacy of piol government and pacific intention thus be'p.cathed, but the same men who low cantiol the Republican party Ilavei anion them said no, and in stead of j ace end amity we have had re construct ioa wi h a'l th.it the word implies of theft and nxurJer, robbery and wrong. In l-fS General Grant, whose cry of "Let us Lavs peace" hal lx"C")me the shibboleth of Ralii-alinm, was elected to supercele Johnson, and in his inaugural, reiterating th'- a-isuranre? of good will lor our section he promised a speedy solution of the then as now vexed and vexing "South ern Qaestion." Eight yearslhave passed and it still remains a subject of inquiry and in vestigation for apeciaJ committee. The Re publican party promising fairly has kept these promis only to tlu ear, it fcas in variably broken tliem to the hope. When the pie-tion of Hayes's success wxs yet in the balance, and it was possible for the Democratic majority of the house to have prevented the consummation of the villainy of the majority of the electoral commission, the then governor of Ohio, eager and anxious to secure a place for "which he Las no fitness in intellect or experience, be V'.in to plo' and plan a series of com promL?s to obtain the coveted prize. An oilitor of the New Orleans Times opportunely put in an ap;earance at Columbus before con gris met and while yet the coofflry was rtirrnl froiix cc-nter to circumference by the Is juiiana investigation, he opned nego tiation in behalf of the south that is Lou isiana and South Carolina and forth with the telegraph lines were burdened with the plans for perpetual peace and a wiping out ' ox all difficulties by the beneficent ly riroxni-Jng Hayes. He had, am he said, fc?me mi-trivings as to the fate of the por negro. chouM Tilden become Fresident. bnt as to himself he had no anx ieties. A palpable falsehood this last, but it operated on ome good souls at the south, and upon some men in Washington who ought to have known better, anl the retult was a perteytible weakening on the Presidential situation, j History, which we ate told teaches by exam ple, ia thi ca-e failed. 1U lessons were lof-t npn Mime of our leaW, and promises be came once more an eagerly accepted mUti- j Mte for fact, truth, and law. Lulh.il to a! en-e of repose by these promises, the IuKentUc uutjoritj in ron jsre ycanm divid.'d, rtil w' the minds of the people, and momentarily threatened us with the disaster of early disrup tion. Theelectoral law passed, the commission wa organized for work upon additional promises by Hoar and others that evidence was to be taken. That promise, like all the others made by the Republican leaders, was given only to be broken. During the pro gress of the commission's work and the de bate in the house this was iilade apparent, and an cfl'ot t was made by a few Democrats to re trieve the fortunes of the party, and by resort to such tactics as the Republicans had set an "xamplo of to prevent the consummation of the final fraud of a party resting upon corruption. To frustrate this Hayes, through Foster and Stanley Matthews, came up with fresh promises, the tenor and pur port of which appear only in part in what Mr. Levy discloses and the letters signed by those gentlemen. Besides these promises, signed, sealed and delivered with all the formality of diplomacy, there were verbid agreements anil pledges, the purport of which was the release ot South Carolina and Louisiana from military control, upon which alone the so-called filibusterinc Democrats would allow the verdict of the commission to be quietly registered, and permit Hayes to be sworn in. Even this promise, in view of ail that had gone before, was accepted, and, we need not tell our readers, was lived up to in good faith by the Democrats concerned Honorably and honestly they carried out their part of the agreement, believ ing, as John loung Brown stated, that the end would justify the means. That they were justified in this was made apparent, in asmuch as Hayes even went so far as to sup plement and strengthen his letter to Foster by additional promises in his inaugural ad dress. Nearly four weeks have passed away, and yet these promises are no nearer fulfill ment than they were when given. A parley has bten called for, in order to induce a com promise in South Carolina, where Hampton has a case that no honest man can doubt, and a commission for Ixiuisiana has been ap pointed to repeat the reports and statements that have come up from that State every year smc the war. Thu3 it is that Hayes keeps his promises of good government for the States now prostrate and almost ruined as a result of Radical rule and Republican su premaey. True to the traditional poli cy ot his party, he has been lib era! in promises he never intended to perform, and true to the policy of that party, he has resorted to chicane and deceit to secure an honor the people never intended he should enjoy. The letters and statements to this effect, which we publish in to-day's Appeal, are only a confirmation of the charges we have all along made, and which, as we have from time to time shown, were based opon the acts of a party which came into power upon sectional hate, has been nourished and fostered upon sectional hate, and will continue to live upon it until Democratic majorities in both branches of congress, change the drift and current of public policy, and brings the country to a fuller sense of truth and justice. We trust we have heard the last of Republi can promises and agreements, and that here after Democrats will confine themselves to what is possible to them growing out of their own strength and legitimate efforts. MORMON OUTRAGES. Documents Unearthed Charging Another Outrage, Only Exceeded by that of the Mountain Meadows, Against Brighani Young. A Party of Eighty Teamsters, Discharged from the United States Army, Prob ably Butchered by Brigham's ' Orders. New York. March 28. A special from Tucson, Arizona, says the following is a cor rect copy of the original order given concern ing tha Mountain Meadows massacre. The order, with three affidavits authenticating it, was found among the papers of the late Ex-Chief-Justice John Titus, ot Arizona, and formerly chief-justice of Utah : Special Order: SALT LAKE CITY, April 1W, 1K5M. The officer in command of the escort is hereby ordered to see that every man ia well prepared with ammunition, and to have it ready. At the time you see these teamsters one hundred miles from the settlement, Pres ident Young advises that they should all be killed, to prevent them returning to Bridger to join our enemies. Every precaution should be taken to see that not one escapes. Secrecy is required. Bv order of General Daniel H. Wells. JAMES FERUUSOX, Assistant AUJiHant-lieneral. The orginal order with the affidavits are in my possession. I have had frequent conver sations with the late Judge Titus, my former law partner, in regard to the matter, and he never doubted the genuineness of the order or the guilt of Brigham Y'oung. L. C. HUUHE3. THE PARTICULARS. San Frahcisco, March K. Referring to the dkpatch from Tucson, Arizona, to the effect that ihe order for the massacre at Mountain Meadows was found amon g the pa i'itus, a pers of the late Ex-Chief-Justice gentleman living in this city, formerly a resi dent of Salt Lake, says that he had the above document at one time in his possession, and had no doubt of its genuineness. It referred, however, to some eighty men, who had been teamsters in the army, being gent to Utah, under Colonel Albert Sidney Johnston, to esr cort the new governor who replaced Brigham Young in 1857. An early fall of snow forced Colonel Johnston and his troops to winter at Fort Bridger, one hundred and twenty miles east of Salt Lake, and as the Mormon troops, under Lieutenant-General D. H. Wells, had burned up two trains of supplies for the United States army east of Green river, the general was forced to put his soldiers upon nort rations. Early in the spring of l7 these teamsters were discharged from service and permitted to return east where they had entered the government service. They preferred to eo west, and started for California. They believed that, as non-combatants, they would le permitted to pass through Utifi unmolested; but as soon as the teamsU-rs came over the mountains and en tered Echo canyon, they were taken prisoners and made subject to martial law, proclaimed some months before by Governor Bngham Y'ouni. A gentleman who was then among the Mormons in Echo canyon, and now re siding in this city, saw a small division of those teamsters under a Mormon escort on their way westward. The Mormon military authorities thought it prudent to divide the eighty teamrurc into small squads, no doubt thinking' their purpo4 would be easier ac complished than if they had been kept to gether in uch a body. The Mormons deny that such a mas vre ever ixx urred, or that such an order was ever given, but those who have given tlie nubject attention have no doubt but that the order was issued and the work accomplished.

Cleveland, March 28. ---The Review, of t ostona, Uhio, to-morrow -will contain the f ollowinir interview with Hon. Charles Foster Reporter Have you anything that you can say relative to the alleged compact between yourself and Stanley Matthews, on the one part, and certain southern gentlemen on the ouieri' Mr. Foster So far as any compact is con cerned, there is nothing of it. Dunne the final hours of the count under the electoral bill, several southern gentlemen, who were opposing tne niibustermg movement, were solicitous that they should have definite assurances Irora Hayes as to his southern policy. An informal meetinsr was arranered. nt which were present as the friends of Hayes Messrs. Sherman, Garfield, Dennison, Matthews and myself. The object of the meeting was simply to arrive at a better un derstanding in regard to the policy of the in coming administration. They, on their part, did not claim that the assurances they asked tor was to determine their action as to the carrying out of the provisions of the electoral bill, but that they desired them as a guaran tee to their people that they acted in good faith. To this end, they desired that Hayes give to them only such guarantees as he had already given to his own friends. In reply, it was stated by us that it would be improper and indelicate at this time for Hayes to give any assurances foreshadowing1 his policy, but that we felt fully justified in stating from our knowledge of the views and intentions of Governor Hayes that his policy would be to favor local self-government and home rule in the south. Reporter 1 ou did not snve any assurances as coming from Governor Hayes? Mr. roster JNot directly, or as to them; we simply stated our belief as to his course, based upon communications from and con versations -with him. Reporter Was any assurance (riven as to the immediate or unconditional withdrawal of troops from the southern States? Mr. i oster Whatever may have been said with regard to the withdrawal of the troops was simply in the nature of a belief that such would be the result ot the policy which we believed the President would adept. Keporter You say that there was no writ ten compact entered into? Mr. Foster There was no written compact entered into, and allegations to this effect, so far as I havo any knowledge, are the merest moonshine. Reporter I see it stated that a copy of the compact was sent to Hayes, and that he ap proved it; have you any knowledge ot any sucn thing t ilr. roster Ihere being no such com pact, it is simply inipossibls that Mr. Haves should approve or disapprove of it; at least, 1 know nothing ot such a thing. Keporter 1 understand, then, that this meeting was merely an informal one, in which yourselves and others, as friends pr in some degree confidants of President Hayes, made representations to southern gentlemen as to the pacific intentions of the incoming ad ministration toward their section; that these representations were based on verbal and written communications you had with Gov ernor Hayes, but were not regarded in the nature of a compact to which he was pledged. Mr. roster Exactly. We had no author ity to make a compact binding Governor Hayes, and we distinctly stated the impro priety ami indelicacy of making such a com pact at that time and under the cireum stancCh. Reporter What about the letter written to John Y'oung Brown and Senator Gordon by Matthews and yourself? Air. roster lhat letter was the result of conversation I had with Brown, in which he asked for written assurances for his future justification. He distinctly stated that he did not ask this as a condition of carrying out the provisions of the electoral bill, that he regarded that as a matter of personal honor, and that no power could coerce him to do otherwise than faithfully stand by the pro visions of the bill. He asked that the paper be signed by Matthews and myscjf, and be addressed to him and Senator Gordon. I expressed a willingness to accede to his wishes, and the paper was prepared, signed and delivered. I have no recollection of having any conversation with Senator Gordon on the subject of writing this letter. Reporter What was the nature of rhnt letter? Mr. Foster It was a statement bv Mr. Matthews and myself as to what we believed would be the policy of President Haves in lealinir with the southern Question. it con tained nothing more than was contained in my su-ch on the subject. We did not retain a copy ot,the letter, and cannot give its exact contents. Reporter What is your opinion as to the object of the publication of false reports re garding this matter? Air. roster Its object is evidently to weak en and cnpple the administration m dealing with this southern question, and to disaffect southern men who are working in good iaith to uphold and sustain the President. The Facta In the Case. Washington correspondent of the Cincin nati Knquircr: The following, from the high est and most authentic sources of informa tion, are the true facts in the case: When the Democrats m congress becaias assured that it was the intention of the electoral commis sion not to take evidence or go behind the certificate, it became patent that so far as the lecision of the commission was concerned Mr Hayes would certainly be the President. The northern iH;mocrats evinced a purpose to defeat the count by filibustering, and not a few of the southern men deem ng that Til- den's cause had not been heard, felt inclined to resort to the same kind of tactics, excusing (heir proposed action on the ground that the omnoMuon naa not, imuea uie iemocrauc party with good faith, and that there was no obligation, legal or moral, upon its members to ratify its decision. Among those who took a deep interest in the situation was Senator Gordon. In conference with his friends in the senate, he said he thought it his duty to exert himself in behalf of Governor Hamp ton's gubernatorial claims. He did not in vite his friends in the house to fili buster to defeat the electoral count. but wanted assurance that, in case Mr. Hayes was allowed to lje declared elected. there should be some guar.iatee given that South Carolina and Louisiana should know how they were to be treated. While the mat ter was one of secret discussion among the southern members. Hon. Charles Foster, of Ohio, who was looked upon by the southern members as reflecting the views of President Haves. niade.a speech in the house of repre sentatives, in which he declared that "if Governor Hayes attained the Presidency lie would be President of the whole people, and under his administration the flag should float over States, not provinces, and tuat the peo ple of the south should be permitted to exer cise the same rights of local self-government as the people of the north. A day or two after this speech was made, which excited lively" comment among the sou hern members, Governor Hayes wrote a letter to Air. Foster, m which he stated that he (roster) had, m quite a delicate way, represented his views on the southern situation, and that he thanked him for it. This letter was shown to several leading southern men, and it will be remembered that Representative Levy, in nis remarkable speecn in tne house, which attracted the attention of his col leagues, made the statement that he had re ceived assurances which could not be ques tioned that Governor Hayes, if elected Presi dent, would follow out the policy indicated in Foster's speech. Aleanwhile Senator Gor don and John Y'oung Brown called on Air. Foster, and asked him for some assurance in writing that if the count was allowed to pro ceed, and was not, antagonized by southern men, that the policy indicated in his speech would be carried out. Foster consulted with Stanley Alatthews, and the latter did prepare an agreement in writing, promising that Governor Hayes would carry it out. This agreement was signed on behalf of Hayes by Alatthews and Foster. It is alleged by south ern men that its existence and text were made known to Senator Sherman and General Gar field and other leading Republicans, and that verbally they indorsed it, and became to this extent sponsors for its faithful execution. Since the action of the cabinet in deciding to send a commission to Lou isiana, and to invite Hampton and Chamberlain for conference to this city, the southern men representing the interests of Nicholls and Hampton, respectively, have become rather disgruntled. They have made frequent allusions to what they have called an agreement, and with warmth have alleged that they have been deceived. On Friday night last, according to report, a prominent Republican senator (said to be JVlorton) had an interview with fresident Hayes, in which he stated to the latter that there was consid erable talk about the agreement, and asked him if he knew of its existence. The Presi dent replied that he did not, and did not au thorize any one to enter into it on his behalf. It resolves itselt to just this: lhat either Foster trusted very largely on the letter that nayes wrote him, thanking him tor his . . . . i . .. speech, or that he had additional assurance from Hayes that all would be well, which constrained him to give the agreement he did southern men here are verv anxious that lie should take his thumb out of his mouth, and rise up and say something. The Foster-Matthews Compact Louisville, Jlarch 28. To-morrow's Courier-Jottrnat will contain an interview with Hon. John Y'oung Brown, of Kentucky, who rays: "Herewith I publish the letters of Hon. Charles Foster and Hon. Stanley Afat thews to Senator J. B. Gordon aud myself:' THE circumstances attending their origin are in brief as follows On the twenty-sixth of February last I sent a page trom tne house ot representatives to tue senate chamber ot niv distinguished mend. General Gordon, and he came over in a few minutes. I told him that I wanted an inter view with Hon. Charles Foster, at which 1 desired his pres nee. I outlined to Generid Gordon what 1 intended to say to Air. Foster, and he said he would with pleasure accom pany me. We tound Air. roster in the room of the committee on appropriations. No one else was present during the interview. 1 told Air, foster that 1 had. as he knew, been voting against all dilatory motions; had in a speech advocated the inflexible execution of the electoral bill; had stated in a Demo cratic caucus that 1 would so vote if I were the only man from the south to do so: that the vote was approved bv niv iudgnient: that I felt under obligations of honor to stand by the result, bitter as it was, feeling that the situation was not chargeable to the electoral bill, but to the majority of the commission whom we had agreed to trust. I told him I had received dispatches and letters from home, from cherished and trusted friends, conveying most emphatic remonstrances against in course, but that with my convic tions about the question, if a petition signed by every voter in my district should be sent to me, requesting me to support the ddatory motions, it would not by a hi 'r alter my pur pose. I said further to him that there was but one thing which would change me. and it was that if 1 thought by voting to complete the count, which was to result in the inauguration of Mr, Haj-es, 1 would be acting directly or indirectly in perpetuating the usurpations of Packard and Chamberlain in the States of Louisiana and South Carolina. I would reverse my action . and do mv verv utmost to defeat the execution of the bill, re gardless of consequences, calamitous to the country as I believed they wjuld he. 1 furthermore told him that it I changed mv position I knew of several prominent gentle men who would join me, and n at that criti cal hour, when" the daily and nightly scenes, surpassing by far in wild excitement and violence anything ever witnessed in the legis lative history of the country, the line of the Democrats who were voting to execute the law should be broken, it would result in a stampede among them, and Air. Hayes would no more be the President than he (Foster) would be. Foster said he be lieved this. I have the highest respect for Charles Foster; I believe him to be an hon orable gentleman, and I told him that it was my confidence in him that had brought me to him. He represented the district of Air. Hayes. He had just made a manly and pa triotic speech, in which he s;ud that under Hayes, if inaugurated, the flag should float OTer States, not provinces over freemen, not ubiects. 1 referred to this speech, and told him I had come to request of him written assur ances that if Hayes was inaugurated he would restore home-rule in the States ot Louisiana and South Carolina; that the people of these States should control their own atiairs in their own way, as free from any intervention by the r ederal authorities as the State ot Ohio. This conversation was" long and earnest. I told Mr. Foster that I wanted to make no bargain no agreement; that I scorned the thought of it; that I had declined a re-election to copgress; was voluntarily withdraw ing from political life; wanted no othce that a President could give me, and that my object was unselfish, but 1 desired a written assurance from him that the policy of Air. Hayes would be as indicated, and from him especially by reason of his very intimate rela tions w:tn Air. Hayes. His reply to all was frank, full, earnest and satisfactory to my friend (General Gordon) and myself. Indeed, Af r. Foster said he had in his pocket a letter just received from Air. Hayes, thanking him for his speech, to which I have alluded, and indorsing it. He offered this letter to Gen eral Gordon and myself to read, but we de clined. He agreed to give me the desired letter and said that he would request Hon. Stanley Alatthews to sign it. He promised to meet me that night at my roomi, and he came about midnight and said that by reason of his interview with General Gor don and myself, he had that evening Erocured a meeting of some gentlemen from ouisiana and South Carolina at Wormley's hotel, at which, also, Henry Watterson was present, and at the conclusion nf ihe eonter- ence the gentlemen expressed great satisfac tion at, wnat had been &aid to them. On leaving he remarked that I should have the letters next morning. On the next day he came to my desk in the house of representa tives ana handed me an unsigned letter. I read it and took my pen and erased one para graph. I said it could be made fuller and stronger, but that from the honorable men who gave it in good faith it was sufficient. In an hour 1 went to his desk ami ht deliv ered to me a letter surned bv himself and-j Matthews. I observed that it was in a differ ent hand-writing, read it hastilv. and re marked that it contained some generalities I did not like. He replied that Air. Alatthews had re-written it. and added: ''Brown, it is intended to cover the whole case, and I can promise you there will be no doubt about the luiiJimeut of all the assurances 1 Lave given 3"OU. ' 1 noticed the original letter on his detk, and said, sign this also, and he re plied, i.crUunly, with pleasure. As 1 was leaving, he ctilled uie back, and told me that I resident Grant would, as soon as the count was competed, issue a certain order to Gen eral Aueur. He requested me not to mention this fact for several days, but expressly gave me permission to make any use ot the letters t niim tiMire. i tie order reterred to was issued by President Grant. I gave copies of ine inters to raefcsr.s. Levy, hliis and Hurke, of Louisiana, and to General M. C. Butler, of suiun iuroiina. with authority to use them whenever they pleased. When I saw that the IJemocratic victory, so fairlv won. was lost, my deepest concern was for my suffering southern cojntrjfnicn to contribute to their deliverance iroxn bondage was the passionate aspirations of my heart. Had I believed that the poiicy of AL. Haves, if inaumirnted. would not relieve them from the hateful and nnrepubiican nupeivision r f the army and the luitner plundering and oppression bv men alien to Attii iu birth and svmpathies. I should never have voted as I did. Hon. Charles Foster secured the inauguration of l resident Hayes, tint tor his speech and three letters the result would never have been reached. Ihe conversation and contents of the letters were made known to many. The confidence of the Democrats in him and his authorization, to say what he did composed uie representatives ana caused them to re main unshaken in doinst what they believed was rigns atnul tne storm that was raging- arouna tnem and m ttie tace ot earnest re monstrances of their constituents. If a few had faltered the panic would have been general, the work of the commission would have been fruitless, and before this time, in my opinion, a hurricane of war would have, lieen sweeping over the land. Hope deterred has sickened the heart i of southern men. I do not understand, nor do I appreciate the delay. President Hayes ought not to hesitate. The whole countrv expected tins great and good work at his hands. I'assionate men are heamnc invect ives upon the heads of th se Democrats who voted to stand by the electoral bill. This pains me, but causes no regret for my action. I I - r -i, i, . . , ... n conclusion i win sav that l nave lull taith in the fulfillment of the assurances contained in the letters of Alessrs. t oster and Alatthews 1 hey are honorable men. I cannot believe they would attempt a deliberate deception They are intimate friends of tha President; they know his views, and expressed them in these letters. An honest con struction ot their language means that the autonomy of Louisiana and South Carolina should be restored. It is impossible that the President, under all the circum stances, in view of his own utterances and the promises ot his friends, can refuse at once to make Louisiana and South Carolina as free as Ohio, and have the flag float over states, not provinces; over freemen, not sub jects, it this is done the neace and pros perity of the republic will be secured; if not done, the whole responsibility tor the conse quences, whatever they may be, will rest upon President Hayes. jpHN YOUNG BROWN.

S Louisville Items. Lorisvn.i.E. March 28. A petition was filed in the United States court here this evening, by which the company owning and operating the Gait house, the largest house in the south, goes into bankruptcy. The large bonded debt has interfered with the af fiurs of the company for some time past, and though the prosperity of its every day busi ness has greatly relieved this debt the com pany deemed bankruptcy the best course to pursue. The hotel will not be closed, but continue business as before. The old mana ager, Colonel Jilson Johnson, will lemain in charge.
