THE BEFrOUTOBH AtiAIH COCHCII The little squad of repudiating offiee eekers who seem so deeply interested in the division of spoils are bent on mischief. They are held together by the cohesive powers cf ' pap and perquisite, and every few week they meet at Nashville and vociferate their demands and repeat their threats in the - event the Democratic party fails to indorse their peculiar views in regard to the State dolt Tbese demagogue met again in Nanhville the other day and ponnded the welkin with their ponderous utterances, but they did not vary the monotony of the old sonjr the same lust? desire to nde into power on a repudiating platform. After much canvassing, thefe blatant effice eeekers met in council and jumped up and down like a manikin on wires. Through the leaders kindred thoughts fiowid and throbbed. They weft on ach triers bosom, and as they felt f"r esh others strawberry mark the tableau Tha Dublin baa had ft surfeit of these blustering, threatening repudi ating meetings. The leaders have been busy since the election in August, in setting before the public the same dish, and as it baa been a ana in roasr, it is too omacb. If the coun- pudiatcrs should be heeded will be defeated in the next can vat s. There can be no compromise of this Question so lung as one wing of the party lays down its ultimatum and proclaims that it will bolt and st t up an organization of its own anless the othrr wing obsequious'y accepts the terms dictated. It ia eviJmt that the Tennessee rcpudiators expect to play the same game which succeeded in Virginia. In this State the Republican party ia cn record as denouncing repudiation in any manner, shape or form. But thi repudiating Demo "trats are impressed with the belief that if icy will set op for themselves, the Republi cans will support them, expecting, by dividing the Democratic party and electing a legislature and governor composed of inde pendent candidates, they will have produced division which in due time will give them control of the State. Judging from the result in Virginia, this expectation is not impossible; tor the Republicans in that State were ait load in denouncing repudiation as are the Republicans in Tennessee, but they voted with the readjusters with the view of break' ing the Demucratio organization and estab Lihing ft new party composed of repudiating I mocrata and enough Republicans to con--Xilliio majori.'y. It is to avoid this dan- icer that the ArrEAt, has insisted for the patt thre months, and will continue to urge, mat I the Stato debt question be eliminated from j.he next convuss. An honest expression of Hbe people cacnot be elicited in a Tresi- x&itial election. In the vote which was ) cast in AagUHt lst, there was nothing I definite before the people. The issue 1 was Lot well defined. Many of the bond- r'ders had cot accepted the proposition to promise at fifty cents on tEe dollar. Cut if Fx5 will nnite and go before the n xt legisla ture, which neets in January, 1S31, and sab mit a tangible compromise which will finally and forever settle the quettion, we believe the peoplo of Tennerste will at the polls ratify tuch ft compromise. The history of he past, the fate of the funding bill, dem janbt rates 'bat any settlement of the State TSt7tf will not stand unless ratiGed by the peo Kile themselves. Virginia funded her State i&fct, made ft compromise satisfactory to the bondholders and the legislature; but - ither legislature ia now in session at Richmond, and the readjusters, who lard ft majority, will repudiate tje ompromise of ft former legislature. The sine thing will occur in Tennessee if the xsople are not consulted and permitted to ex ?eas their views at the ballot-box. The )etcocratio party wai impressed with this bo lef, and the State convention which nomi ated Governor Marks unanimously re solved to submit any settlement agreed up- 41 by the legislature to the people. .A simi sr resolution would no doubt prevent any liscoid and preserve the unity ot the party, or the most extreme low-tax Democrats vould not four to trust the vote of the people, or if they are to decido on the settlement t would be immaterial whether ft Iow-ux r high-Ux governor and legislature were fccted. VCOTTO.V PBICKH AMU PMOHAB1LI" TKKM. The present moment appears to be ft criti al one in cotton affairs, one at which buy rs think cotton will decline, and holders iiake "pretty sure" that it will go up. Vhuther cotton will go up or down in the jacket puxxles lookers-on to decide. The .rgo receipts since the opening of the season ave aroused a suspicion that the present crop i a large one, perhaps not less than five lillion five hundred thousand bales. There also an increase th;s year over last in the mount availublo from H-jypt, the Last Ia- ias and other cotton producing placet. In in view of the case, taking into consiJera- on also the depreusion of trade in Europe, iom the nsual avenues of trade by the fail re of the breadstuff harvests in England iid France, ft reduction of future prices ap oars inevitable to one class of operators in lot ton. On the other hand, the agricul tural bursals report givta ft low estimate, U hile disinterekted observers think that five lillion two or three hundred thousand ' ales is not far fro'm the fact, making due al- )wance lor the increase this season in the ill.'y of the Mississippi and the decrease in ' .e Texas crops. It is remarked also that e receipts at the ports are cerUinly, to a enter or less txtent. not to be absolutely jsted this year as nu indication of the 1 aouDt of cotton produced. The reason of ' ,i unrt liubility is mainly that the price - ing considerably higher this year, proin Vtigftsbas been realised, to be 12a where :be same time lsjt season it was 8c, stimu '.ted planters to teud their cotton to market 'irly, and they were asoisted in this by the '.ivorable picking weather enabling them to - et their cotton in ft condition to forward at ' n earlier than the average time. It is also ,atd. on this side the question, that in ' Itoet where the cotton is hntil the winter brings usually retained a rise in the I rttri, the cotton Las to n large extent been iauled from cut-of'tlie-nay points to the Viarket on carts, for the purpose of securing belter prices before any untowarj event ii-.ould rduce them. That these various U ! uences have had their part in the cotton "ovement up to this time cannot be disputed, hd oa l-i" s -rted that tha present I -vrTednp toiled, caism J much Tor the political st 1 sils of these rc f the Democratic party price of cotton is not infl ited, but is the ne cessary resu! t of circumstances as they exist, and that those circumstances tend to prodnoe still higher rates. From this view of the question the conclusion is arrived at that the present crop is not fin excessive one. Look at the matter in whatever way it may be pre sented, and it resolves itself into the single question what is the amount of the crop? Of course, this question arises every season, the peculiarity at the present time ia that in dications pjint to a larce crop, while circum stances such as we have pointed out cast ft doubt cn the early receipts carry ing this year the conclusion to which such receipts usually point. This uncertainty it is tbat causes the lull just now observable in the cotton market, a lull, it Bhould be observed that appears to have little effect in lowering the expectations of holders. The New Orleans Times, of last Sunday, bad an interesting articlo on this subject that well m?rits attention. Estimates -of the crop, as we have noted them from sources qualified to judge, vary from five million two hundred thousand to five million five hundred thou sand bales. The Timttt article, discusses the question what would be the result on prices supposing the crop should turn out to be five million four hundred thousand bales? If at this liberal allowance it should turn out that there would be even then barely suffi cient to supply the worll's wants, then it is evident that prices up to this time have been on the Eafe basis of supply and demand For it is to be remembered that the increas ing prosperity of tne cotton mmu factory in England insures permanency, at least, to present prices, provided they are legitimate and not inflated. Before entering upon this portion of the question it must be premised that 400,000 bales more, as good authorities state, must be added from Egypt and India. In inquiring whether prices so far this sea son have been legitimate or inflated we most put aside all questions as to whether the present crop was or was not produced for less money than preceding crops: it is not that fact but the proportion of the demand to the supply that will regulate the market price. The 7Ym first lays down that of the surplus on the firrt of September of 400,000 bales, onlv about 40.000 bales remain. The season opened with an unusually rapid re ceipt of cotton, which, it would naturally be expected, would Lave caused ft reduction In prices. But the demand was more rapid than the receipt, for of 570,000 bales surplus, taking into account receipts at ports and the overland movement, oa!y 40,000 bales now remain. I he bulk or this disappeared surplus is not in spinner's hands, for they had to fill op the va-iuum caused by the scarcity of material in the summer month, and spinners will require as much cotton from this time forward as they did last year. This is made evident from the fact tbat trade in England and the continent, though still depressed, is more active than at this date last year, and trade reports show that the activity is increasing. Assuming, however, that all Europe will not consume more than the average of the past nine years, and that the total supply for the world will be 7,250,000 bales, allowing 5,400.000 for Americt, then taking the average weekly da livark-s in Great Britian and .the continent, the American consumption, and allowing for exports to Canada, Mexico, etc., we have a piobubla supply on the first of September of 1,177,000 bales against 980,000 last year at the same time. From this the Times sums up: , "With an estimated increase in produc tion of over 700,000 bales, we can add only about 200.CCO bales to the world's visible supply at the close of this season, while an American crop of 5,250,000 bales will leave us a surplus of 50,000 bales in the visible supply, with spinners holding no more stock of raw material than at the close of the last season." The surplus of manufactured goods was small last year, the deficiency of cotton causing accumulated: stocks to be drawn upon, all of which circumstances indicate that present prices stand upon ft sound basis Should the rising rivers bring less cotton than ia looked for, owing to advanced prices hav ing drawn a portion of the cotton already to market &cd wa must romembor tbat there n a dcuciency ot ib.WJ bales in xexaa ana about 100.0CO bales in the Atlantic States the decrease in receipts that would follow could not but produce ft strong effect. To make up the assumed crop of 5,400,000 bales the Mississippi valley must produce 500,000 bales more than it did last year, while it is estimated at only 300,000 bales. : The' New Oileans Times very confidently predicts five and a quarter million bales as the total crop, which it thinks will stand the test to 50,000 bales either way; and such a crop means a falling off in receipts of 400,000 bales in the ourso of the remainder of the season According to the 5,400,000 computation pres ent rates appear to be safe; according to the other estimate, 5,250,000 bales, we are not yet at the end cf events in the cotton market of 1879-80. " HAKE PKOSrKKITT PEBHASEST. YV hen the Aikansas man was asked why he did not go and stop the leak in his roof, through which a liberal flaw was making its way upon his head, he replied that it was too wet to go out. "But why did not you do it when the weather was fine?" he was then .sked, and he replied: "Because it did not rain, and I was very well as it was. Uur cotton-growers hsve copied, to ft great de gree, the Arkansan's policy. It . asked, "Why do not you manufacture your cotton, instead of sending it away for eastern mill- owners and English manufacturers to grow rich upon, while you are bemoaning your poverty ?'' the reply has been : "We are too poor to engage in large enterprises." "Then why did you not do so when yon were doing well?" "Ob, we bad plenty of everything then, and could make onr way very well i thou t them." There is the whole story, and the policy of the cotton-grower has been precisely that of the ignorant, lazy Arkansan. It is time this way of sending off our raw material . for other nations to make fortunes ot should ceas9. "Rain or shine," the great business of manufacturing our own product should be begun, and continued until every pound of American-grown cotton is turned into yarns and fabrics by the aid of American machinery tended by American citizens on Americsn soil. We cannot complain of a rain now, unless of ft rain ot gold. Now is the moment. We have the use of newly-invented machine' ry offered us, such as no previous inventions have equaled. We have the means of set- nu to work and winning for ourselves, out of our own-grown cotton, those fortunes that we have hitherto foolishly left to the posses sion of the foreigner. Uow Americana, who pride themselves on their acuteness in mak' ing the best use of all the avenues of wealth nature has opened to them, can have left such a mine of riches as the manufacture of their own-grown cot' ton . opens to them, seems inexplicable. A parallel to this neglect of ft 'golden oppor tunity is found in the Mexicans, who dwelt in California two hundred years, and yet never availed themselves of the powers of its soil, or of the splendid commercial ad van tigt s of its scacoast, nor even of the hidden millions that awaited only their outstretched hand to be poured forth in profusion from its teeming mines. That the cotton-grower should have allowed fortune to slip from his possession, by acting just as the ignorant "greaser" has done, is intolerable to think of. A Georgia paper writes:- "Wherever there is a grist-mill, planing-mill or saw mill, a yarn factory can be added without an increase of power and at very little increase of coot. Georgia at present leads all the southern States in the maufao ture of cotton. North Carolina ranks next." And where is Memphis in this race for fortune? Is it so near Arkansas that it cannot get out of the policy of that fine specimen of the Anglo-Saxon race that could not make any effort when it rained, and would not when the sun sh'inedfIsit not time we gave up allowing the Mexican greaser opportunity to claim that ws are fol lowing his illustrious example? Trade is good, fortmuJ Awaits effort Will the effort be made ? Let us fowus p o and be doing. GRANT AND SHERMAN . The Third-Termer Is Keeping His Own Counsel and Always Steers Clear of the Politicians He Will Kot Tell What He Intends to do About the Presidency- John Sherman's Last Trip to Kew York Doubts of the Anti-Third- ' Term Tribune, Philadelphia special to the New York World:. "The Grant boom received an un- ex oec ted chill last night, and it is all the talk in political circles to-day. Since General Grant has been here he has persistently sep arated himself as far as possible from the Drofessional Doliticians. even treating with scant courtesy, it is claimed, the city officials charged with bis reception, m bas preferred the comDanv of Mr. Chilus. Mr. Drexel, and other persons of high social position. The Doliticians seem to have been coming to the conclusion that he is determined to get along without their help in his Presidential aspira tions. and last night this conclusion was forced home oa them. " General Grant was entertained at St. George s hall by the mu niciaality. and as tijkets were given out by counsilmen, it was expected that ' speeches wouid be made to a sympathetic audience which would arouse si hurrah and bring the guest out in something like an avowal of his candidacy. Mayor Stokley was cocked and primed tor a third-term BDeech. following out the idea ot his Commercial exchange speech. But the plan did not work. General Grant simply looked in upon th banqueters tor a tew min utes and left abruptly, on the plea ot pre vious enoacemeut wiin an old trieod. tore- join his less uproarious friends. Tha disjtuut of the crowd was marked, and the most prominent persons were loud in denunciation of what they termed the distinguished guest's discourtesy, while the majority ot those pres ent actaallv seemed determined to turn the whole thing into an anti-Grant demonstra tion. The spoiling of ft banquet which cost several thousand dollars was only a small part of the mortification swallowed by the politicians, and it is not likely that Mayor Stokley will make any more third-term speeches. Several city papers will comment on the matter, although General Grant has not yet left the city. - . HAS NO MOBK FAITH IN GBAHT THAN : EDISON. Special from Philadelphia to. New York Tribune: "This city is suddenly becoming the Doint from which all manner of sensational foolery is telegraphed everywhither. No more unutterable nonsense, however, has for a long time been sent out than that which in some of to-day's papers represents Secretary Sherman as having united with the Grant movement and having remained in town to seal the bargain over the hospitable luncheon table of Mr. George W. Childs, whde the other candidates were merely and con- clusively submerged by ' the Grant wave. Mr. Sherman has made no such agreement, and is as hostile as ever to the third term; he had so political talk whatever with General Grant or bis foi' lowing: and instead of being at Mr. Childs's luncheon, he was, at that hour, peacefully on board the tram, making the best ot his way to New York. It may be added that the other Presidential candidates show no disposition to lesve the field: and tbat the inmde pol ti cians still think that if General (Errant goes into the convention, ' it " will - be to make his - contest with the others. The effort to attribute political significance to Secretary Evarts s presence nere is as un- warranted as that in the case of Secretary Sherman. It is probable enough that the Pennsylvania Republican convention will be called on the twenty-second of February, in accordance witn an old custom; but there is no reason yet for saying that it will instruct for Grant, and there are many who say it cannot." . aHKKMAS S TRIP TO NEW YOBK. Washington special to the Cincinnati En- auirer: "it is believed that toe real owect of Secretary Sherman's trip to New York is to arrange tor the sale of the balance ot the four rer cent bonds, authorized to be issued under the refunding act of July 14, 1870, and the supplementary act of January 'ZU, 1571. These two acts authorized the issue of an ag gregate of $1,500,000,000 in bonds for re tundinsr 'any of the bonds of the United States outstanding and known as five-twenty bonds, and it is specified tbat of the aggre gate named not more than $500,000,000 shall bear interest at tne rate ot nve per cent, per annum, not more . than fdOO.000,000 shall bear four and one-half per cent, - and the balance of the $ 1.500,000,000 shall bear four percent. Under these acts authority was only given to refund the bonds known as five- twenties. The total amount of five-twenty bonds, when refunding was authorized, was nearly tl.200,000,000, and, when all this description of bonds was refunded, the secre tary ot the treasury was authorized, oy tne act of July 29. 1879. to refund the ten-forty bonds, of which there were S191.UUO.OUO out standing, and which have been redeemable at the option of the government since March 1, 1874." SKCBETABY BBtBXXlt OS A HABMONIZIXa . jtisBios. ; Washington special to New York Herald: '-Secretary Sherman's ostensible business in New York is to attend the New England din ner, llis most important' m'ssion, however, is to secure harmony among all the Repub lican leaders in .New lork Scute politics. A very full understanding on this subject has already been reached, partially through cor respondence, but mainly through t personal consultations. 1 be dinerences which have heretofore existed between the secretary and the late officers of the customhouse have been adiusted in the main, and it is believed by those who are informed in regard to all the steps tbat have been thus far taken tbat a complete and satisfactory understanding will soon be reacnea. uovernor uorneii, n is un der stood, will co-operate cordially with the secretary upon what he, in connection with the leaders in New York State, may agree to be best for the interests of the Republican party in the approaching campaign." SECRETARY 8HERXAIT AND THE THIBD 1BK, m New York Herald: "A large number of callers sent up their cards to becretary Sher man at the i uth Avenue hotel yesterday, but that gentleman attended church in the morning and he was out during moat of the afternoon. He told ft Herald reporter in the evening that he had nothing new to say in regard to finances or the currency; that he had freely expressed his views in a recent in terview published in the tlerald. in sDeak' ing of the Philadelphia letter published in Sunday's Herald he said that several rumors were printed which aid mm-great injustice, becauee they were untrue, tie further stated that, with the assistance of several persons friendly to himself,' Senator Cameron was elected chairman of the national committee because he was deemed the moat fit man for the position, without respect to his choice for the Presidency. As tor bis visit to f hiladel- phia, Mr. Sherman said that by invitatioa of Mr. Drexel he attended an evening reception given in bonor of General Grant, and he saw General Grant and conversed with him in the presence of other guests: that the aubiect of the Presidency was not alluded to by either himself or Ueneral tirant: tbat he never had any conferences with any friends ot General Grant while there as to the Presidency and was not in Philadelphia at the luncheon of Mr. Childs, but was at that time in Ne York; tbat he never was in Mr. Childs's house. . He added that while he had always been a sincere friend of General Grant and had in the main supported him during his Presidency, yet he is now, as he was four years ago, ot tne opinion tnat it is not wise for General Grant to be a candidate for the third term. -. FAKKS GODWIN. To ft reporter of the Philadelphia Prets. Mr. Parke Godwin, editor of the New York Evening Post, said: "I am out of politics, and have been some time. There is do use in discussing Grant's character as a soldier or as a man at this time. It is not in dispute. But his character as ft statesman is seriously in disDute. and 111 oe more so snouia ne consent to become a candidate for re-election to the Presidency.- am opposed to hm as a candidal, ana snMt tte. Juy opposuum arises frm the love of mu country. Grant mads a bad frestOent aurxna nts nrsi verm He made -tr-srorss one dttrina his second term. There is no reanon why he shou'd not prors rttll worse, if that were possible, should hi net to b President a third time. Grant was never chosen by the nominating conventions because he was universally re garded as qualified tor the office; not at all. Ha was not chosen because he had provtn himself to be a great soldier evenrnot at all. The machine nominated him because he was regarded as 'available.' The people ratified the nomination because their patriotism, baing shrewdly wrought upon by the politi cians, prompted them to reward their most deserving soldier by snving him their great est gift. In all this there was no statesman ship. The reasons that actuated the politi cians were base and selfish. They were not even complimentary to Grant. To push a man forward for a great office merely because he is available is to use his record for a talse purpose, - It is the false pretense ot politics. They who do it are, jike the monkey, the fel lows who are after the chestnuts, and they make ft use of their available candidate like the use the monkey made of the available cat they get him to sec$re for them the nuts they themselves dare nut reach after. The reasons why the people elected Grant tht first time were based on gratitude. Such reasons are seldom the reasons of states manship, and they are seldom called out and p'ayed upon in such a great emergency as the election of an American trresxaent, except by dema gogues. No man ought ever succeed in reach ing the Presidency of a country like this un less he has well proven himself skillful and trustworthy in the performance of just such work as be will be called upon to do in that office. There is evry reason why the states man should be President. There is every reason why the good soldier should be suc cessively promoted through the grades. But there is not one why be should be promoted out of them. Then there is a thing that should never be forgotten in politics. In this country the success of any war is mainly due to the executive who is at the time at the head of affairs and responsible for them, and whose conduct of affairs evolves out of the nation the successful military leader. ' It was difficult in the times of Alexander, C?ar and Bonaparte. They were both ruler and warrior. Their armies gathered for them, at their call and for their cause. It is entirely different with us. Mr. Lin coln personified the cause of. the north, it was at bis call, for the purposes he pro claimed, and it was under his management that the vast armies of the Union sprang into exigence and wulde't their tremendous power against disunion. That army knew no gen eral, knew no leader, bnt Lincoln; it knew no cause sufficient tor the great sacrifices V. offered to make but the one proclaimed by Lincoln; it could never have become acquaint ed with any marshals but those silted out from the ranks and elevated by the policy which Lincoln uaed in his wise statesman ship, la this country no ambitious soldier can step out frcm the racks and wage any personal war, like ambitious soldiers have been able to do in any other country in the world. Here the army is no personal prop erty and can become no man's clan. The President, by and with the consent of con gress, both depending on popular suffrage, calls the army into motion, and controls its leaders." GEORGE WTXXIAX CURTIS, editor of Harper's Weekly, being inter viewed by a reporter of the Philadelphia Press in regard to Grant and a third term, said : "Do yoa think he will be nominated ?" "It is impossible to say." "How do you regard the probabilities?" "The probability is that he will have the nomination offered to him. From my knowledge ot conventions, of how they work, and of how they are influenced, mat ters look as it' the nomination would cer tainly be offered to Grant." "Do you think he would accept?" "Yes, he would, in my opinion." "Would you regard his nomination as wise?" "I think it would be unwise both for him self and for the party. He would gain nothing by it, even if he could be elected. The party would lose by it." "How so?" "The nomination would certainly be inex pedient in my judgment the most inex pedient the party could make. It would1 provoke the resistance passive resistance, at least of large and powerful class of Republicans whose co-operation has been demonstrated to be essential to the party's success next year. The fall State elections showed that it was necessary for the Repub licans to carry New York next year in order to elect the President. It is difficult for Re publicans to carry New York at any time, It has been proved bsyond doubt tbat it is exceedingly difficult fur the party to carry the State with machine nominations. Grant's nomination would render the success of the parts in this Stats problematical. It would be a machine nomination. 1 o say nothing of those who refused to rote at all last fall twenty , thousand of tlie best Repub licans in the Slate worked to defeat the patty ticket. These voters are the independent voter?, the men who strive lor purity and patriotism in politics, the men whose votes are cast by conscience. tii9 men who are against the machine and who do not need organization. Their num- ber is mainly due to a growing dislike of the very practices that obtained aunng trrant admmtstrattons, ana which they are thor oughly determined continually to oppose and eventually defeat, these voters are readers and thinkers, and are sincere, lhey nave enough strength combined to carry this State for the Republicans even against the united Democracy. IB at, to secure their votes, the party nominations must not be ma chine nominations. Grant 8 renomioation would, I believe, antagonize this element and render Republican success in this State very dsthcult, it not altogether impossible., . ihe party managers should see this and avoid so inexpedient a nomination. Would his election ba opposed by any other class ot Ke publicans t Yes: I think it would bo opposed by an other class of Republicans whose prejudice against a third term are stronger thau even that other prejudice against the machine There can be no doubt that a great body of the very best Hepwlicans have a very deep and ineradicable feeling against a third term. So strong and general is this feeling that it has created a custom against third terms. This custom of a hundred years is one tf the unwritten laws of 'he land, and is as strong as any part of the Bri'ish institutions, It is cherished as sacred by our people, who look upon i; as one of the unwritten safe' guards ot the constitution, and, because it ia unwritten, any attempt to violate it would probably be met by ft more stubborn resist ance tban even an attempt i I break down part of the written law. It cannot be denied that the feeling against third terms is deep and wholesome, there is no reason at pres ent for trying to overthrow it. General Grant a election is not necesssary. it is not sought upon any good grounds of pub' lie policy, la is not urged to accomplish any needed national object. . It is not sug gested as a means to secure any desirable thing which cannot be just as well secured by the election of any other nominee, there is. in tact, neither reason nor occasion ior it. 1 hen why attempt it ? It cannot be said that the national prejudice against ft third term is harmful. It can not be denied that it patriotic, wholesome and wise. Then why disturb it? It is not pretended that Grant would make a better president tban any other man in the party. Then why should his election be sought ? He has been Presi dent twice. There being no necessity tor his election again ; there be-eg, indeed, no good reason at all for it, why, to accomplish it, should a wise, wholesome, patriotic custom, made law by the veneration of a hundred years, and regarded as one ot the unwritten safeguards ot the people s liberty, be dis turbed add destroyed ? " TILDEN'S TALK. The Old Bscs or eraanerey Park Ie OBsees Indlgaantly the Charge or Kellf'a Ora-aa that he Attempted to Bribe the Klectora f Month Carolina He Bars Kverj bady Will Believe it la lm trae. New York Sun: Ooe of our reporters called on Mr. lilden, and. finding him at leisure, showed him a copy of our last Sunday's pa per containing an article copied from Mr. John Kelly's morning organ, and asked him it it would be agreeable to him to say wheth er there was any foundation tor the Btate nients there made about negotiations with him to obtain the electoral vote ot the State of South Carolina for thirty thousand dollars Mr. Tilden took the papec, ran bis eye over it, and then said: "I have no objection to answer your question, if my friends of the Sun think the publication worthy of such notice. I do not see in this article a single statement concerning me personally which is not a mere fiction. Keporter lne substance of the story, Mr. Tilden, is that you .ware visited at your house by an agent from South Carolina, who told you that the vote ot that btate had been given to you. but tbat the returning board had determined to count it against von un less they were paid thirty thousand dollars; that after declining the proposition you re called this agent by a letter addressed to him at his hotel; that on the second interview you referred him to a gentleman in this city: that the gentleman gave bim a package contain ing thirty thousand dollars, which was sent to Charleston; that the package had scarcely left the wharf when the agent re ceived another letter from you requesting bim to call at your house immediately; that you on the third interview insisted upon the immediate return of the package unopened. and that it be restored to the person from whom it was received; that the agent remon strated, saying: "Ihe corrupt men in Colum bia, and in the btate generally, have net tried to count Hampton out. They know perfectly well that both you and Uampton are elected. and have received a majority ot the votes of the people, but they can afford to count you out. but not to count Hampton out, because be and his friends will not stand it. ihat, notwithstanding thia remonstrance, you per sisted in requiring the package to be restored to the person who handed it to the agent. Do vou mean to say. Mr. lilden. that all this story is without foundation ? Mr. Tilden J do. Every one of .these statements is totally false. No one of the three pretended interviews ever happened. I never sent either of the two letters attrib uted to mo, or any such letter, or any letter to such an agent. I never referred any agent bearing such a proposition to air. urown or to Mr. Anybodyelse. All the details concern ing the package of money being sent by my procurement or knowledge, or being recalled by me, and all my alleged conversations re specting it, are wholly destitute of truth. They are simply a fabrication from begin ning to end,. THE SOUTH CAROLINA Sensation Sipped In the End, though Keltt is SUU for Grant and Bayard for President and TIce-PresI- " ,-: . dent, and Allen Finds . Food for Thought la the Debates In the Press and In Congress "JLoral Cow ards" who Delude the A'orth Dodging- In the Senate. We copy what follows from the Charleston News and Courier as the finality of what promised to be a sensation in South Carolina, but which has not panned out as Messrs. Aiken and Eeitt expected. The true policy of the south is the election of Bayard. He has the courage of undoubted statesmanship. AIKEK's LlETTEH. " Washihotow, December 20. You had "a week of sensations," you say. Well, whj notr wnac would a newspaper be now-a days that was not sensational? My letter to tne Aews ana Courier of the fifth of December, from thia-oity, must have ereated a sensation, judging from the editorials of the weekly press of the State, and the letters pro and con I have received from the State. I prom ised to give your readers something to think about and I succeeded. I have no words of reply for any of them but the Newberry neraia ana Abbeville Press and Banner. To the former I would say not a syllable in my letter can be shown to tend toward the 'disintegration or disorganization of the par ty in South Carolina. I wrote entirely of k ederal politics, and believed every word I wrote, and 1 believe it yet. And I repeat what i saia, or intended to say, tbat we ot the south, who are held responsible by the Amer ican people for all the legislation of congress, because we are in the majority in the Demo cratic party, and that party ia in the majority in both houses of congress, are so manipu lated by our northern allies (though they are in the minority), that all our Federal legisla tion reoounua to the benefit ot that section, anu none, or almost none ot it, to our bene fit. Northern Democrats will vote with northern Republicans to defeat southern measures. Ihis 1 have seen done repeatedly, and hence my aversion to the great southern .Democratic party continuing to play mam moth tail to the northern Democratic pigmy kite. The Herald is considerate in its edito rial, for which it has mv thanks: but it most pardon me for saying my position and that of ioionei neiu s are as antipodal as the poles. ids coionei ana i may "take the same post' tion in deprecating sectional politics, but there would be a divergence the moment we began to seek a remedy. He nominates Ueneral. Grant. Heavens! and, too, in conjunction with Bayard. Where can two more discordant representative men be found? I would not vote for the former, and could not, with my present convictions, advocate the claims of the latter. I know not the promptings that suggested the editorials in the Press and tlanner when reviewing my letter, bnt they impress me that the writer would be pleased to bring me into disrepute with the people of the State, and have them b lieve I would disrupt the party in cower in South Carolina, and abet the following of the scalawags, whom everybody ought to know 1 bate as I hate Old Sin. It I misinterpret hi motive, 1 as pardon. It 1 do not, I would simply say to my Scottish friend, look to yoor own skirts. The people of South Caro lina never have, and perhaps never will, failed to locate me correctly ia any and every crisis that has or may occur. -Eoouehof this. Let the people think, as I trust they may; for if tuere is a iauit with our State, it is that the people do not take interest enoueh in Federal politics. ' When the public mind is directed to any subject, the conclusion drawn is gene rally correct, unless a diversion is created by designing demagogues. ' In my judg ment, the Repubbcan party is to-day leu Dy - jubg sucn men; and, un fortunately, the national Democratic party is not led at all, but drifts along always in the interest of the northern minority. And so we go. Last summer you stated that Garfield had made a speech in Toledo, aver' ring that he had no hand of friendship to extend to any "rebel," unless said "rebel" would confess his guilt, and acknowledge tbat secession was a crime, or words to that tffict. A few days ago I was sitting in the vestibule of the hall of representatives ta:k ing to Uev. A. 1. Porter, of your city. Garfield passed by, stopped a moment, turned, and, in a most cordial way, extended nis nand to me and welcomed me back. hoped I had been well, etc., etc At once 1 remembered the Toledo speech, but could not allude to it then. Subsequently I sought mm out ana toia mm wnat was telegraphed as coming from him at Toledo, and asked him if it were true. He denied it in toto. I then asked him what he did say. - He re plied: "I said I bad no friendship for those wno said we were wrong in upholding the Union." I asked him who ever accused them of being wrong in doing this? He said we of the south. I denied it. Then he said the "Okolona States" "and''Bob Toombs," and a lot of other stuff that was irrelevant to the subject under con' sideration, and suddenly arose from his seat and left me. I am convinced he said just wnac ne was cnargea witn saying, and bv just such moral cowards are the masses of the north to-day deluded as regards the south and her people. Under their leader ship the sectional line will never be obliterated. The most interesting debate of the session occurred in the senate on Thursday last, upon Mr. voornees s resolution to investigate the North Carolina exodus. I may be wron? here, too, but I was amazed at the course of debate followed by the Democrats, especially the southern senators. They quibbled about straws, and attempted to defend the people ef North Carolina against tha pooular cnargea oi maltreatment ot those negroes, when they must know that a Yankee ne gropholite (is there such a word?) would be lieve the stones of the most lenorant necro sooner than he wonld the sworn testimony of Den mu nimseir, or any other southern sen ator. I am amaaed at the opposition pre sented Dy souinerners to inis negro exodus, way not lei mem gor it they remain in the 80utn tnere is no development. no advancement, no accumulation of ealth by the toiling farmers or la borers, tvery enterprise is subordinated to this brake upon the wheels of nrnffrmi.

COLONEL KKITT'S APPEAL TO THE PEOPLE. Enoree Plantation. S. C December 20. In the issue of your paper of the fonrth instant, i exercisea tne rigbt ot every Ameri can citizen to counsel with my countrymen on public attairs. uae JNewberry Herald, not being in accord with my sentiments, assailed me in an unusual manner and misrepresented me. Nowhere have I called upon the "Demo- nn.tn" h r ; . ' I , XI 3 as their standard-bearers for President and Vice-President in 1S80. which that narier affirms. I invoked the people, regardless of puny, vu mane mat nomination. I aid so after mature deliberation, and I repeat it. Grant at Chicago, speaking to his old sol diers, of the army of the Cumberland, the first, that he commanded in the war, said) "I am no partisan." He will stand a gran ite wall between the stalwarts of the north 4 K a 1 . 1.1 t .1 ... and the innocents of the south, as upon the heels of the war he stood between President: Johnson and our own Lee, when he said. nut as long as he holds mv varole." Let the people everywhere throughout the land rally and, regardless of party, through their primaries, make the nomination of Grant and tsayard, and let us become one people and one country indivis.ble. Very respectfully, ELLISON B. KEITT. CONGRESSMAN AIKEN'S FOOD FOB THOUGHT. Charleston ews and Courier-(editorial ): 'In these davs ot trimminrr and dodirinir tha frank and bold talk of Congressman Aiken is both surprising and refreshing. We do not agree with him in thinking that the Demo cratic party has outlived its usefulness, and we are confident that such changes and im provements as are requisite can be obtained through the Democratic party more surelv and readily than through any other political organization now in sight; but we like the plain and straightforward way in which he delivers his opinions, and wish that other public men would follow his example. It clears the atmosphere. Success which de pends on concealing one's own opinions and being the speaking-tube of the msjontv. right or wrong, is hardly worth having, and does not wear well. It is disgusting of course to hod northern Democrats voting with northern Republicans to defeat southern measures. 1 be question is. Were the measures proper and just? If they were not, it was the amy 01 tne nortnern Democrat to vote against them. In the same way it is the business of southern DemocraU te vote with I n 01 them Republicans, if neoetsary, to defeat northern measures, if those measures are un wise and likely to be injurious. Congressman Aiken, it strikes us, is one of the men who will vote according to his convictions, what ever perturbation at political hee'lauartere. and he need not be surprised if D mocrata from northern districts are as independent as he is. The southern members control th9 , Democratic party, and can direct its policy 1 but northern members will not era with them unless the Democratic policy be such as is ap proved of by the northern constituencies. By working lor and voting for alt measures that look to maintaining a stable currency and in suriner fair elecfiocs. Congressman Aiken and other southern Democrats can command the support of northern Demqrats in and out ot congress. Ihe south has nothing to tear, n sontnern members will lose sight of party and look oily to the public welfare ! This is consistent with devotion to party, The men who run the 'muchine will take care to work it advantageously fo the public when they find tuat aoy other course will ex pose them to imminent danger of an explo sion. 1 be people or south Carolina can stand plenty of 'fcod for thought' of the kind that Congressman Aiken gives them 'When the public mind is directed to any subject the conclusion drawn is generally correct, unless a diversion is created by de . signing demagogues." And it is prorer to say here that we fee! Ihat Congressman Aiken can be counted on with as much certainty to work, in any and every way, tor the S:ae as it he had no opinion cf bw own and never spoke except u ader order?. THE GRANT BAYARD COMBINATION. Charleston Teirs and1 Courier: "Colonel I Keitt does not expect the Democratic parly I nr the republican party to nominate the Grant-Bjyard ticket. It is the people regard less of party whom he invokes. 1 his is just as well. It win not suit Democrats to nomi nate Grant, or Republicans to nominate Bay' ard. The people do not at present give anv token of' being uuduly excited by either of i the South Carolina sensations, and the grand uprising is indefinitely postponed. From the Independent.!

THE NEGRO MIGRATION TO INDIANA. New York Herald: "The interesting dis patch we print from North Carolina narrating tbe beginning and progress of colored migra tion from that State to Indiana leaves some mystery hanging over the movement. It gives a pleasing picture of the prosperity of the JNorth Carolina blocks, their opDortuni ties tor education and employment and their equality with tbe whites in civil rights, and yet it says they depart in troops. More than four hundred have gone from the neighbor hood of Goldsboro alone, which indicates a startling depletion of the population of the State it the same proportion prevails else where. Some of the emigrants write back doleful stori s of the unprofitableness of the change from the pine-clad southern highlands to the mudbanks of the Wabash, but these are ineffectual to restrain the departure of more. Ihe only cause assigned for tbe move ment the playing of an Indiana editor and a North Carolina preacher upon the imagina tion of the negroes seems inadequate." WHAT VOORHEES SATS. Indianapolis special to th9 Louisville Courier-Journal: "A News reporter this morning called at tbe Bates house to see Senator Voorhees, now stopping in the city, to interview him as to what the committee appointed to investigate the negro exodus, and of which he is chairman, and Messrs. Vance, Pendleton, Windom and Blair are the remaining members, propose to do. Lie said that as an individual mem ber of tte committee, though he had his views, it was not for him to fore cast what would be the action of the commit tee. As to the negro immigration of the State, if it was a natural one, and the negroes came of their own volition, he could not do anything against it, but if they were brought here through organized efforts or through other than natural methods, the matter was certainly a proper one for inquiry, just as the matter ot cringing Chinese into California by means of companies organized for that purpose was. Indiana, the fifth State in the Union in regard to tooulation. certainly had no call lor immigrants of this character, no inducements to pauper la bor. This State had no cheap lands, no waste places. There was no great demand for labor.' and the sooner these immigrants are unde ceived, if false inducements have been held out to them, the better for them and others who meditate coming. North Carolina is the last State in the Union, it appeared to him, to Buffer such an emigration. It was a staid, old-fashioned, conservative State. It had never appeared that negroes had suffered any ill-treatment in that State. Beside, these negroes come from a con gressional district in which they are in the majority. Those who have gone to Putnam county, in ths State, have gone where there can be no demand for them. It is a well-set-tied county, where there is no lack of labor ers. He had already met some censure for asking this investigation. This he thought unjust. He did not think a public man cen surable for developing facta in a case like this. The committee did not do more than give material facts, from which the nnblio can draw conclusions." ATTUBNEX-AT-LAW. J. G. SNEDECOR ATTORNEY-AT-LAW, NO. 41 MADISON ST., MEMPHIS T. M. SCRUGGa J. E.
