Yours of the 27th of June is at band and contents noted. The pure English and scholarly style of the same only increases my admiration of the author. I r.-gret to lay that I cannot yield assent to the sentiment! contained therein. From the fact that yoor letter to me was indorsed "private" it will not surprise you to learn that I was aitonished to find the same in the Cleveland Plain Dealer of this date; and were it not for the fear 1 entertain that the contents of the same may be misconstrued, and that I may be erroneously regarded as being unfriendly to (he cause of Republicanism, 1 would raise no word of protest. But, my dear sir, perm't toe to say that you have mistaken my M&l and enthusiasm fur an honored fellow-townsman, and exhibited by' me in our recent State Con-1 vention, for opposition to the Republican cause. I am in politics, to some extent, as I am in law. Though I may in the convention champion the cause of my preference with all the energy I can command, yet, when the fat has gone forth, when the die is cast, and a ticket is selected, it wonld be disgraceful to my manhood,,my constituents,.and my party were I to do less than yield it au earnest and hearty support SOMETHING TO BBUKMBEB. In 1857 rhy poor, dear mother sacrificed her humble home for a pittance, ondspent the greater portion of it to bring her children here from beneath a Democratic das* potism in the SoHtb, as detestable as H was universal.

We got here just after the reins of government in this State had been-transferred from Democratic to Republican hands. Since then I have learned under Repub-1 Hcan iule.what it ia to be a man. Slavery1 has been aftoiisiieu, toe oauoc ana me jury box made accessible for as, the rightI to give testimony in open court accorded, to ua, and, mirabtle diem, we are even per-1 mitted to stand and plead oar own cause at the bar of justice.
