THE DAILY, APPEAL
M. R. MIGHCLS::!::::::""""'
TODAY KOSHIKG. AT3. 25. UC6
WUT DOES IT FKOHISZ TO EFFECT.
What doc the elevation to power, of
the opposition promise to effect? This
if the question wbicb most directly ad
dresses itself to tbe intelligence and pa
triotism of the man who conscientiously
inquires of himself as to his political
position to-day. For oarselres, speak
ing candidly, and after as full a review
of tbe situation as daily observation ot
the proclamations and enunciations of
the so called Democratic press would
enable us to make, we are free to con
fess that the sum total of all that is
promised, is a return to political suprem
acy of the rrty which gave birth to the
rebellion, the men wbo engineered its
armies, and the nerveless traitors ntu
standing npon loyal soil, cheered tbe
cohorts of treason in their mad on
slangLts upon the Temple of our Liber
ties. When we bare attempted fur our
own information to evolve some distinct
and coherent ptao of action, some pos
itive "policy" from such declarations
and resolutions as have been put forth
by tie conventions and committees to
which tbe management of their affairs,
seem to have been committed by the
Democracy, we have been met at every
tarn bf a web of sophistry, a eotnplira
tioa of negations, and an ntter absence
cf defined and consistent aSrma'.ions
The oae sidkic aim, directly avowed, is
tbe substitution of sympathizers witb
Treason fur loval men in the couDcili of
tbe nation, the abolition of those pie
cautionary measures so necessary to be
maintained in order to complete tbe
work of restoration. It remains to be
aeen whether tbe American people are
willing to forego the power they now
posse.-.?, and place themselves at the
merer of their hereditary foes. Wt ac-
case our opponents of sophistry. Let
their daily declaratoo that Congress
demands tbe adoption of the Constitu
tional amendments now before the peo
ple, by the States lately in rebellion as
a Condition precedent to their restor
tion lo their voluntarily atiandonei func
lions, hen compared with what Con
cre-ss does really ask for to wit: the
ratification of the Amendments by tbe
legislatures of three-fourths of the
Mlates, without reference to the que?
tion of the admission of representatives
from either of the sreedrd States, con
firm the charge. We accuse them o
dealing in negation. Let them poin:
oat the affirmative proposition of any
neastre which they submit for endorse
ment, save and except the unrestricted
Tight of red handed traitors and their
wfi.iated friends to rule the n ttion. We
assert th.it their policy means tbe lodg
meat of political supremacy in tbe bands
of the gallon's enemies. Le t them point
to the election of a loyal man to repre
sent a rebel district, or to exercise local
political functions in a rebel community.
Hut it U rnougli to know the key note
f the march. As well expect a regi
ment who rattle their sabres and tiing
their cups in air when the strains of the
Bonnie Blue King, witb a single star,"
float out above Ibeir gonfalons, to rally
round the llanuer ot the nation with the
rpirit that led our soldien lo tbe vic'o
ncs which render mrmoroble the thou
sand battle CcMs crowned by tlieir tri
umphant valor, as to expect a parly with
audi a watchword, to il aught except
to betray Ihe land if ever the power to
do is placed within their grasp. And
if the appeal now made to the loyal peo
ple of the several plates, to endorse
Congress, to refuse to elect men to rep
resent them who are not fully commit
ted lo alt thitt Congress demanded ami
which the spirit Ir which that body was
etaateii. and the necessities of
Iho hour stiil demand", is disregarded
if thev f liter and fnil in their
pliin, iinuiirt-kf-itde duty, they deserve
to see their dig trampled upon, the
tombs of their dead benies desecrated.
and anarrhy come down like night'
pon tluir land
Treason may be con-
tiered in the held, but traitors cannot
be trusted in tbe Cabinet or tbe Couu-
eil. We should think this lesson ought,
a a a a a
l.y this time, to bave been learned by
Ihe America, people.
KEX0V2D.
Our telegraphic advices inform ns
that 9. T. Gage bas been removed from
tbe office of Collector of Internal Reve
nue, and Georwe M. Beebe appointed in
his stead. Heche's sntecedents are
too welt known to reqnire comment at
our bands. Tbe action of tbe Execu
tive in this matter is a source
of profound gratification to the
Union men of this iik. Sot tbroagb
any personal unfriendliness to the de
capitated, and most certainly not from
oy admiration for bis substitute. Do
so again, good Mr. President. An
open enemy is better than a pretended
friend. There are a few sick Union
men hereabouts wbo need just such a
dose of " my policy" as you have given
them in this appointment of the illus-
rious B. B., to cure them of ' Optbal-
atnia Johnsonia." They were getting
it bad. They have been seeing you as
through a glass darkly." Tbey have
no desire to look npon your sweet fea
tures face to face."
LETTER FROM WASHIKGTOW-
Washixgtos, D. C, Aug. 3d, 18GS.
To tbe EoiTom Carso Arrr.iL : A
citizen of 5iew York, teniporarilv go-
burning in Washington, allow me to
ask tbe privilege of occupying a little
space in tbe columns of your paper, for
tbe purpose of giving public expression
to tbe views I entertain upon a suojert
of great importance, not only to vonr
noble youog State of Xevada, but to
every State of our national Union
refer to the selection of a United States
Senator, by tbe Legislature of Nevada,
to supply tbe seat of tbe lion. James W
Sye, wbicb is to become vacant by tbe
expiration of bis $hort term, on tbe 4th
of March, 1867. Esteeming the subject
as one of Xational as well as of State
concern, as I have already said, I trust
yoa will acquit me of any design, in tbe
little I bave to write, of nnduly inter
fering with your local affairs. I bave
no purpose of the sort, I beg you to be
well assured.
During tbe progress of the session
of Congress, just closed, I was, through
out, an anxiously aiteative observer ol
it- debates and legislation. The Tbirty
uinth Congress, I need not tell you and
your intelligent readers, was culled
upon, at its opening session, to grasp
and deal with some of the mightiest
questions that ever challenged tbe pa
triotism and statesmanship of our coun
try's representatives. Nobly, most no
lily, was lbs great work undertaken and
prosecuted! Day and night, week after
week, and month after month, saw
Union Senators and Representatives at
their posts, upholding tbe standard ot
liberty and driving back its foul invad
ers. Tbe conflict was terrible one.
but tbe spirit of liberty, in all its bright
ness and purity, emerged from it un
rjurncbed and unquenchable.
I bave been familiar witb tbe peritonei
of our Congresses for the last quarter of
a century, and do not hesitate to express
my opinion that, in wise legislation, in
patriotic devotion to tbe best interests
of our common country, in useful learn
ing and soul stirring eloquence, I have
known no Congress among them wbicb,
in history, will stand in preference to
he Thirty-niutb. "The Great Com
moner," HisnT CtT and "The Great
Expounder," DaSiel Wkbstsr are witb
us no longer, it is true, but tbe average
ability of tbe Thirty-ninth Congress is
greater, io my opinion, than that of any
Congress in wbicb either Mr. Clay or
Mr. Webster ever served. To sav then.
that your brilliant Senator James W
Xje has already acquired, and is main
taining, the front rauk in such a galaxy
of statesmen as constitutes the present
Congress, is an achievement something
wonderful; nevertheless it is true. Com
manding raak in tbe highest councils of
the Nation is only attained, ordinarily
hy the most gifted, and thut too, only
as the reward for many years of contin
uous and severe labor. In this except.
iona! case, Senator Nye, by bis splendid
genius and intellect, always on the alert
and equal lo every emergency, by bis
quick and thorough comprehension of
the unprecedented difficulties into which
oar country had been plnnjed by tbe
j rebellion, and of the legislative remedies
j required, by bis patriotic zeal and lofty
j eloquence, and by bis wise statesman -

At ire Beginning, modestly, inougn
with masterly intrepidity , bo Asserted
his trne positive in tbe Senate, and.
having acquires! and held it, with ease
and dignity, no Senator in the body or
any one else new pretends to question
bis rightful claim to it. lie stands to
day the recognized peer of the first men
in the American Congress an honor
higher, and more to be prized, than was
that of being a "Roman Senator" in the
palmiest days "of the proud mistress of
the world." The youthful Nevada all
thanks to her sound, discriminating
judgment! is doubtless proud of her
great Senator, whose unwearied exer
tions, in the right direction, have con
tributed so largely towards an honora
ble adjustment of our national difficul
ties. Much rood has been accomplish
ed, despite the unexpected and formida
ble influences against which Congress
has been forced to battle ; but much
yet remains to be done, and tbe with
drawal of Senator Nye from tbe public
service, at this critical juncture of our
national affairs, would be justly regard
ed, by all loyal men, as a great misfor
tune a real catamite. But no fears.
no apprehensions are felt io this quarter
that your Legislature will, at its ap
proaching session, abandon the well.
tried and approved Senator, and send
in bis stead, one of untried and doubt
ful capacity. Nevada, it is confidently
believed, is too good a judge of genuine
metal to allow herself to discard that
which has been :horough!y assayed and
tested, for the cruder sort'wbich, a
most, is only conjectural!; good. Tb
question, in Ibis case, is not what do
ambitions aspirants to Senatorial hon
ors desire? but what is the best that
can be done to promote the highest in
terests of your State and of the nation
at such a crisis as tbe present? I knoa
of no single event, affecting the public
weal, about to be derided, which teems
to me to be more important more es
sential, I will add than that of re-electing
Jnmes W. Nye to the C. S. Sen
ate, ft is looked forward to with in
tense anxiety, not only by tbe members
ot the august body of which be is a con
spicuous light, but by the patriotic
masses, constituting tbe great Union
loving, Union-serving party of the Uni
ted States.
I trust the foregoing will not prove
distateful to any of your nnmerons read
ers. What I have written has been
done purely of my own volition unso
licited and unprompted. I am a private
citizen, having no personal, political
objects to subserve, and hence cannot
be suspected of other than Ditriotic aims
when I volunteer an humble effort in
behalf of tbe retention in tbe public
councils of an orator, statesman and
oyalist, such as Jnmes W. Xye is, con
fessedly. Re-elect him, and then all
hail XcraJa!
I am, Mr. Editor, with great respect,
Very truly yours, J. B. F

Senators Xye and Stewart, and Con
gressmau Ashley will arrive in our city
a short time, and an invitation has
been extended to them by the Union
tate Central Committee to address tbe
citizens on tbe great issue before the
Nation. We suggest the propriety of
giving those honorable and distinguish
ed statesmen a grand reception on their
arrival. Their course in the contest he-
pen the President and the loyal Con
gress, entitles them lo be honored in
this manner and we sincerely hope that,
if there are Radical ITnion men in San
Francisco who appreciate tbe value of
their services in that contest as tbey
should, thev will make a demonstration
which shall leave no further doubt as
to the depth and strength of their feel
injrs. A grand ratification meeting
might have accompli-hed it, but tba
was voted down. S F. Flag.
