Governor Uoklen Las published a
card boldly and brazenly endorsing
and commending his course durirjg
the Kirk war and defiantly attacking
the justice of the sentence of the
Court of Impeachment that drove him
in disgrace from his high office. It is
not surprising that a man who has the
hardihood to do this Fhould deny the
truth of the statements contained in
the card of the Rev. Mr. Bailet, a3
published in the JovhsaJa of last

that ti'v above resolutions were passed,
and from that day to this the actors in
the Hoideu-Kirk wur have been honored
and esteemed in the Radical ranks in
proportion to their prominence in that
war, Ho!den wan made editor of the
National organ at Washington City,
was oilV. red a mission to -a foreign

Carolina was given one of the most
lucrative. Federal offices in the State,
and all this in the face of the fact that
by the laws of North Carolina he was
unfit to hold even the meanewt office
in the ?aad. But it is no new thing
for the Radical party to defy the laws
of North Caroliua. Thomas Settle
was made Minister to Peru, was again
made a Supreme Court Judge, and is
now the Radical candidate for Gov
ernor. Clarke was.msdo a Judge.
JIac Lindsay is tho Radical candidate
ior Congress. Kirk had a lucrative
ofllco at Washington City until the
Democratic House of Representatives
turned him out. Bergen, the man
referred to in the testimony below,
was offered a Consulship at a foreign
port. John Pool is now Superinten
dent of Public Instruction. But the
list is interminable.
In view of the state thin gs it raay
not be amiss to cal attention to some
of the testimony given in on the
Impeachment trial :
WittiiAM Patton, being duly sworn,
testified as follows :

had taken down, and he then ordered
me back to the tent, and put me in
there by myself for three days, and

prisoners in the camp, and then I was
at liberty to go about with them after
three days : I was kept there until I
was ordered down here by Governor

one remarked that I was. The white
men hud gone paxi the door, and he
rau djffi. ami told them I was in the
stire. They came back and Lieut
Hunnicutt rode up to the door and
asked me my name. I told (hem, and
he ;-aid I must con aider myself under
arrest. I said "all right." He told
me to ao alonar with these men. I
akf.d him when; he wanted me to go ;
h snid he waited me to go into the
country a p-tsce. I went along with
tht:m. I asked him if they would let'
me ride, and he told me he would. I
asked him what authority he bad to
arrest me; he said he was . acting
under orders of the Governor of the
State ; that he was actiDg under the
orders of Burgen and Burgen was
acting under orders of the Governor.
Tbey carried me all over the south
part of the county. I suppose I rode
fifty miles that day. Between 9 and
10 o'cloek We pat to ComDtsnv Shona
I stayed there until the next day at 10
o'clock, when Burgen asked me to
come into his tent. I went with him ;
he asked me if I knew anything about
the hanging of. Outlaw ; I told him I
did not, and he told me it was a d d

which contain the gist of the case
against Hayes are as follows, the first
being a reply to Mr. Leroy's letter
demanding the money :
Co:lumbt;s, O.. Nov. 21, 1869.
Mr. Jambs Lerox :
Sir I nave no recollection of any
such person, and consequently could
not have had hid money. You mu-t
be mistaken, or some one is trying to
impose upon you.
R. B. Hayes.
The second reply is as follows :
Cor,TJMBus, O., Nov. 2, 1869.
Mr James Lerox :
Sir In reply to yours of October
26, say that J remember the person
you spoke of, but never had any mo
ncy belonging to him. You are being
deceived, or are trying to blackmail
me. Yourp, etc., R. B. Hates.
Mr. Hayes again wrote in reply:
Columbus, O., Nov. 16, 1869.
James Lerox, Esq. :
Sib la reply to yours of the 6th
instant, must say that I had left with
me some of the boy s money, but; it
was all returned by mo before the

blackmail on me. lours, etc..
R. B. Hates.

again, and he told me to go back to
my tent, and said he would give me
till 10 o'clock that night to tell about
it. I went back in the tent and stayed
there until about 10 o'clock that night,
when he came there and called me out
again to hia tent, and he told me I
must confess who hung Outlaw ; he
says I know you were one; we know
that Adolph Moore and Jim Hunter
were others in the party who knew
about it I told him I did not. He
said Patton didn't know anything
about it until he was hung, and if I
didn't t.e 1 he would ham? me. f told
him I didn't know anything about it.
He picked up a pistol and called for a
rope, and there was a man standing in
the door I think it was Hunricutt
who handed him a rope. I stepped
outside of the tent, and he put the
rope around my neck and led me down
some seventy-five yards to a piece of

and a half, and he told the lieutenant
that that would do, and the lieufeuant

threat that if I didn't tell he would
shoot me. I told him I didn't know
anything. He then let thf rope down,
and on the way back he said, "I be
lieve you are telling the truth," or
something that way, and he would do
all he could to release me, buthe could
not do so, as he was acting under
orders of the Governor. I stayed in
the camp then nntil the 3d day of

possesses peculiar interest in the light
of thd generally asserted and admitted
fact among prominent politicians,
i.Liiu iur mo nrst time in many years
the German vote is going to be cast
ery largely for the Democratic na
tional ticket.
The article shows that, according to
the census of 1870, the whole foreign
born population of the United States
was 5,473,029 of whom the German
born numbered 1,679,025, or 30 67 per
cent, of the entire population of the
. ui this toreign population there
were, of males of and over the age of
fifteen, 2,717,346, including 825,354
voters, and, making due deduction for
decrease by mortality, etc., there are
726,341 German -born voters in 1876.
According to State statistics, these
German-born voterti numbered as fol
lows iu the following States which wo
have selected from the writer's table.
xn Illinois, 89,577. In Indiana, 36,-
417. In Iowa, 29,373. In Ohio, 79,
899. In Michigan, 17,543. In Mis-
souri, 5d,052. Iu New York, 129,601.
in Pennsylvania, 69,438. These States
in their latest elections polled a net
Radical majority of 43.805, and the
arithmetic man argues at length on
the probable consequence at the polls
if, as is alleged, the bulk of this vote
goes over from the Radical to the
Democratic side. The German voting
strength in these eight States, it will
be seen, is over half a million

ralg-iiment of the ltepiibllca.ii Act
The speech of the Hon. George F.
Hoar, of Massachusetts, before the
Senate of the United States is very
generally regarded as one of the most
terrible arraignments of Grant's ad
ministration and the Republican party
on recor J, made by any one who was
ever directly or remotely in sympathy
with that party. Mr. Hoar, it should
be remembered, had been one of the
most earnest supporters of Grant's ad
ministration, particularly of its South
ern policy, in the defence of which he
has exhibited a bigotry and bitterness
of wuich Blaine or Morton might feel
proud. But this man had witnessed
so much venality, tuch monstrous
frauds, such universal corruption,
that in the discharge of his high duty
of one of the managers of theimppach
ment trial of William W. Belknap for
infamous acts while Secretary of War,
he found it necessary to rise above all
p.iptisar. considerations and tell the
Senate plain truths.
The following were the closing sen
tences of Mr. Hoar's speech;
'My own public life has been a very
biief and inKigoifieant one, extending
little beyond the duration of a single
term of Senatorial office, but iu that
brief period I have seen five judges of
a high court of the United States driven
from office by threats of impeachment
for corruption or maladministration. I
have heard the taunt from friendliest
lips, that when the United States pre
sented herself iu the East to take part
with the civilized world in generous
competition in the arts of life, tbe only
proauct ol liur institutions m which
she surpassed all others beyond ques

in the State in the Union foremost in

the political administration of her
chief city become a disgrace and a by

The Bultetin says the monthly re-
turna of the Bureau of Statistics show
a continuance of the movement noted
for several months past, viz: a large de
crease in important in the prepooder
anceof exports. The Imports of merchan
dise in August amounted to $35,:il4,-
864, as Against J$44, 191,673 for the
same ctonth of 1875, .and $45,247,367
in 1874; the decline compared with the
like month of either of the last two
ye-,rs being at the rate of about 20
per cent. The exports of domestic
produce for August, expressed in
currency values, are stated at $43,286,

increase of $7,586, 627, or at tho rate of
31 per cent. The specie exports
however, show a decline, being for the
mt nth only $2,761,030, compared with
$4,608,272 last year. These figures
sbow that the imports of August did
not feel the effect of the general im
provement iu business that set in with
the opening of the Fall season. Icdeed
that effect can hardly be expected to
appear until the receipts for the Spring

exaltation turned to bitterness and
shame by the unanimous reports of
threecommittees of Congress.two ofth-
bouse and one here, that every step of
that mighty enterprise had been taken
in fraud. I have heard in highest pla
ces, tbe shameless doctrine avowed by
men grown old in office, that the true
way by which power should be gained

witb tbe offices created for their ser
vice, and the true ead for which it
should be used when gained is the pro

treated the demaud of the people for
its ludffment of condemnation as a
farce, and laid down its high functions
before the sophistries and jeers of th

other, which induced his judges to

how these things ere detected,
reformed and punished by constitu
tional processes which the wisdom of
our fathers devised for us, and tho
virtue and purity of the people found
their vindication in the justice of the

The worst of it all is that Mr. Hoar
has told the truth. Is it not about
