Lee, Chief Engineer of the Savannah Railroad, will be submitted to the Board of Directors on Friday next, and if it proves as fa? vorable as is anticipated, it is expected that steps will be taken to begin the lo? cation and construction of the Road im? mediately. It will take three years to complete the grading to Dorn's Mine, if the money has to be paid down, but con? tracts may be let out and the work done with payments to be afterwards made, so that the grading will probably be com? pleted within a much shorter time.? This doue, the Road ought to be completed to Aiken, thus giving us an independent line connecting with Charleston over the South Carolina Rail? road, with Augusta over the Greenwood & Augusta Railroad, the South Carolina Railroad and the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta Railroad, and with points North over the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta and the South Carolina Railroads. So far as the interests of the town of An? derson are concerned, this is decidedly a better terminus than Dorn's Mine, and so far as Charleston is affected, it is the only line which can carry the trade of the Savannah Valley to our own seaport. The building of this road will do much to avert the probable injury to the trade of Charleston from the completion of the Greenwood & Augusta Road. The Sa? vannah Valley Railroad is, therefore, a line of great importance to the western side of the State, and if the Blue Ridge is ever built, of which we have not de? spaired, it will become a very profitable line of road. We hope harmony will prevail in the enterprise, and that it will be pushed to speedy completion. GEN. C; All FIELD'S LETTER. It has become a custom of the country for candidates nominated for the Presi? dency to present their formal acceptance of the nomination in a letter enuncia? ting their views upon the most important questions of the day. In obedience to this custom Gen. Garfield has published his formal acceptance of the Republican nomination, which defines, to a certain extent, his position upon the current topics of the day. To say that the letter is a weak one would be to underestimate its probable value in the coining canvass, for it is skilfully penued to catch the votes of every class of persons from whom the Republicans can naturally expect to obtain votes in this canvass; but not? withstanding this, the letter isau unhap? py document for the Republicans. It contradicts the record of its candidate, and that, too, over his own signature. Gen. Garfield has felt the popular pulse, and finds the sentiment to be overwhel? ming on the Pacific coast that the "Chi? nese must go," and therefore Gen. Gar? field, the candidate, says they must go, although Gen. Garfield, the member of Congress from Ohio, voted against the act limiting steamers on the Pacific coming from China to fifteen Chinese passengers, and then voted to sustain the President's veto after the bill bad passed. Thus he has changed his position upon thiri question for the purpose of obtain? ing votes, which shows him to be in stable, vascillating and designing. He, however, is entitled to such credit as is due a bold statement of position, for he is not disposed to conceal what he pre? tends to be his sentiments. He is in favor of perpetuating the sectional issue And of continuing the centralization of the government. He advocates a pro? tective tariff, and thus puts himself in opposition to the mercantile theories of the West. There are some subjects, how? ever, that he has left untouched, about which we would like to have heard his statement. Those subjects are the salary grab, the DeGoiyer pavement contract, and the Credit Mobilier fraud. Per? haps, however, his silence is the best course he could pursue in the mailer, for it never does any good to talk of crimes of which one 10 guilty, though pretend? ing innocence. Taking the whole mat? ter into consideration we expect Gen. Garfield has written about as good a letter as be could have done. He will get beaten as the case now stands. He would have been beaten had he written any other letter. COL. CASH GIVES BAIL. Associate Justice Mclver has granted Col. E. B. C. Cash bail in the sum of three thousand dollars for his appearance at the Darlington Court to stand his trial on the charge of murder for the recent killing of Col. Shannon. The amount of bail required indicates that Judge Mclver docs not consider tbe case a serious one, and looks really as if the judiciary of the State is disposed to look with leniency upon the crime of murder, if it is cloaked under the guise of duel? ling. Of course a Judge of the Supreme Court is high authority, but it does seem to us that the case against Col. Cash is not one in which bail in any sum is ad? missible, lie went upon the field ivith the deliberate purpose aud formed design of killing dl. Shannon, after having expressed the most intense malice. If there was any ingredient of murder lack? ing in this case, we do not know what it was. The midnight assassin does his work more cowardly, but not more surely and effectively than Col. Cash did his, and Judge Mclver would have taken high ground and done much towards in? culcating a healthy moral sentiment by refusing bail in this case. We have no doubt the Judge was here, as in the Irby case, actuated by considerations of mercy and sympathy, but it is a public misfor? tune for him to have been so. The trial of this case is to settle a most important principle, and, therefore, the duties of the judiciary in passing upon it rise far higher than even the application of the law to a particular case, for generally it is a matter of comparatively little conse? quence as to the conviction or acquittal of a criminal. In this case, however, the result is to decide whether murder can be legalized by the rules of the so called "Code of Honor." If Col. Cash Is acquitted it can be. If he is convicted it cannot. It is, therefore, exceedingly important for the law to be fairly and impartially administered without favor, fear or affection. THE CENSUS ACT. _____ One of the most important provisions of tbe Census Act is the following : "That Section 9 of the Act aforesaid be, and the same is hereby so amended as to require each enumerator, immedi? ately after completing the enumeration of the population of his district, and be? fore forwarding the same to the Super? visor, to make and file in the office of the Clerk of the County Court or in the office of the court or board administering the affairs of tbe County to which bis district belongs a list of the names, with ages, sex and color, of all persons enumerated by him, which he shall certify to be true, and for which he shall be paid at the rate of ten cents for each one hundred names." 'This is a very important provision, and we are gratified to know that it has been complied with in this County. This census report for the County will be a valuable record for reference in future years, and, if recorded hereafter every ten years, will afford a considerable amount of interesting personal history of the County. Dr. Tanner, the New York faster, be? gan his twenty-third day at noon on Tuesday, and seemed in good condition. If his fasting is genuiue he has already passed the supposed limit of human en? durance, and his effort becomes one of very great interest to the scientific world. One peculiarity about the experiment is, that since Dr. Tanner resumed the U8e of water, which he did about the ninth day, he has actually regained some of the flesh he previously lost. The New York Herald gives what appears to be the cor? rect theory about this, in the fact that the human body is composed of eighty per cent, of water, and the supply of this in? gredient has resulted in the gain The fast is now more than half over, and physicians say they see no reason why he should not hold out for the remaining seventeen days. The re-nomination of Governor Col quitt seems to be very sure now upon the second ballot in tbe Convention soon to be held in Georgia, and the people of that State are to be congratulated upon the prospect. Gov. Colquitt is an able and true man, of whom the State ought to be proud. His strength in this can? vass is to a certain extent indicative of the popular feeling in Georgia over the appointment of ex-Gov. Joseph E. Brown to the Senate, and shows that Brown is likely to be re-elected to the Senate this Fall. Such an end will prove very advantageous to the people of Georgia, for they can find no abler or purer man to represent them in the Sen? ate, the clamor and prejudice of many to the contrary notwithstanding. The countiug of the bills of the bank of the State proven before Commissioner Coit has been finished, and the result shows that about eighteen thousand dol? lars of bills were abstracted, which in? volves a liability of the State for nine thousand dollars, unless some of these bills can be recovered before they are put on the market, a thing which is not likely to occur. The trial of Laughlin began on last Monday, and at last ac? counts his counsel were arguing a motion to continue the case. Whether the case be continued or not, the officers of the State will closely pursue the criminal, and he will certainly suffer for his crime. Chastine Cox, the colored man who murdered Mrs. Hull in New York about fifteen months ago, was hanged on last Friday. The colored citizens of the State arc indignant against Gov. Cornell because be reprieved Balbo, an Italian, who was to have hung on the same day, and refused to reprieve Cox. It looks as though the Republican Governor of New York makes a distinction between white and colored criminals. In this case we expect his mistake was not in letting Cox hang but in reprieving Balbo._m_ The Republican papers vehemently assert that Gen. Garfield will be elected President this Fall. This is all very well and natural, as these assertions are easily made, and cost nothing. It is a fact worth recollecting, however, that the Republican sportsmen and betting men take good care not to put up any money on his election. Straws show which way the wind blows. THE PRESS EXCURSION. Interesting Sights in Cincinnati, In our notes upon the press excursion wo had arrived in the city of Cincinnati, where we found everything in the way of habitations densely packed by the vast number of visitors who had flocked to that city to be present at the Demo? cratic Inational Convention. The hotels and restaurants and private houses were alike over filled, and men who were un? fortunate enough to have arrived with? out securing accommodations in advance were in no enviable condition. Some? times one could hear such persons bo seeching hotel keepers to make room for them, in several instances offering as high as twejty-fivo dollars per day for board without securing it. This state of things had a tendency to satisfy the members of our party with a location that had been engaged for us in advance in private houses, which at oilier times would not have been acceptable, for there were in some of the rooms from eight to fifteen persons, assigned according to the size of the rooms. On the night of our arrival an entertainment was given to the South Carolina delegation in the Con? vention by Mr. Means and other gentle? men of Ohio at the Highland House, which was splendidly lighted up, and where a most elegant and extensive ban? quet had been prepared. Speeches were made by Speaker Randall, Gov. Hamp? ton and numerous other gentlemen, in? cluding several of the South Carolina delegates. At tbe conclusion of the speaking there was a very brilliant dis? play of fire-works in all colors, and a discharge of roman candles in red, blue, green and other bright colors, so ar? ranged as to form the letters and words "South Carolina and Ohio." The occa? sion is described by those present as one of great pleasure and magnificence. The day after our arrival we began the work of SEEING CINCINNATI, which is an extensive but dingy, smoky and dirty city, some eight or ten miles long and two to five miles wide, situated in a little basin on the right bank of the Ohio River, and surrounded by high hills, particularly so on the Northern and Western sides. In this city there are very many manufactories, which are propelled by steam produced by the con? sumption of coal, the dust from which seems to have an oily or greasy quality, which makes it stick to everything it touches and soak in, so as to permanent? ly remain, rendering it very troublesome to even get it off of the human skin. It is, therefore, not uncommon to pass men upon the streets with unmistakable ap? pearances of smut and smoke upon their faces. The greatest inconvenience we experienced, however, was from the water, which is limestone in its char? acter, and taken without feltering from the Ohio River, which is a very muddy stream. The water from Rocky or Savannah River would have been de? lightful as compared to it, and yet the citizens of the great city of Cincinnati get no other water supply. They coax it down with quantities of ice when they drink, but lager beer is the natural bev? erage of Cincinnati, and we have no doubt that hundreds of persons may be found who rarely, if ever, take a drink of water, and although wo do not believe in the use of any spirituous or malt liquors, yet after Boeing the water these people would have to drink, we cannot help entertaining a very charitable feel? ing for the tendency to drink lager beer in Cincinnati. Alter spending the morn? ing of Tuesday in the Convention, we took dinner, and went in tho afternoon to the ZOOLOGICAL GAIIDENS, where there is the largest collection of animals and fowls in the United States. The trip from tho city to these gardens is one of very great interest, beginning with the incline plane railroad, which, by a system of cogs and pullies carries a large car or platform upon which a street car, horses and passengers are contained up a hill some two hundred feet high, from which is presented a most beautiful view of the city stretched out in the plains below. Then the ride through the Walnut Hills presents the view of many beautiful lawns and handsome resi? dences. Tho whole drive from tho in? cline plane to the Gardens is like a beau? tiful park built up with handsome houses, the lawns being sodded with blue grass, growing to perfection, and inter? spersed with roses and the rarest and most lovely exotics. At the Garden an admission of twenty-five cents each was paid, and our party of six began the work of "seeing the animals" in a sys? tematic way. Tho Garden is finely sit? uated on au undulating tract of laud, with numerous handsome shade trees and a thorough sod of blue grass. It is, indeed, very beautiful, but the natural attractions of tho Garden are very small compared with tho interest which at? taches to its inhabitants. To describe all of the uncommon animals which have been collected here would be a task be? yond our limit. It was a notablo feature that tho groator portion of these animals appeared healthy and possessed of very great energy and spirit, which is not usually found in them when in a state of captivity. This is duo to the great skill and attention given to adapting their accommodations to their natural wants, and hence the white Polar bears, with their large pool of water kept cool by ice in the hottest weather, gave no indication of suffering from boat, but wore contin? ually swimming and playing about in a quite cheerful manner, affording great pleasure to the visitors; and tho Walrus, usually inactive and slothful in captivity, was swimming and lashing the water in his pool with all of the life which he would possess in his nativo creeks and ba3*ous. So, too, the ostrich was march? ing up and dowu his enclosure as appa? rently contented and proud as he could have been upon tho plains of Arabia. Swans, ducks, geese and various other water fowls were swimming upon the lakes, and in largo cages birds of numer? ous and rare kinds wore perching or playing in apparent glee. Tho monkeys, too, had a full representation, having a houso to themselves, in which some fif? teen or twenty species were gathered in different apartments, and wore contin? ually performing their antics. After watching tho conduct and appoarance of tho inmates of this house, one is strongly impressed with the plausibility, at least, of Darwin's theory, that they are tho origin of man. Tho collection of hyenas, lions, leopards and kindrod animals was likewise very fine. Tho cost of this Gar? den has boon about three hundred thou? sand dollars, but It really represents a great deal more, for many of the most valuable animals and fowls have been presonted to tho Association, so that its value is probably not less than half a million dollars. It is a great resort, and would afford a pleasant pastime as often as one may visit it. On Wednesday morning Mr. J. F. Blackburne, as tho roproscntative of the Cincinnati Southern Railroad, came by appointment for the members of tho As? sociation with ten carriages, drawn by handsome white horses, to give us X DRIVE OVER TIIE CITY. Wo started with Gov. Simpson, Gen. Ha good, Col. Boattio and Mr. Blackburno in tbe front carriage. The first place wc visited was John Kaufman's LAGER BEER BREWERY, where the process of manufacturing beer was investigated by the whole party, and its quality was testified to be excellent by about one-fourth of the party. From tho fermenting room and the boilers, where the temperature is uniformly 80 to 90 degrees, we wont down some sixty feet under ground to the storo-room, where large quantities of ice are kept, so that tho temperature is steadily kept down to 30 to 32 degrees, foi tho purpose of preserving the beer which is stored there. This establishment manufactures about 100,000 gallons of beer per annum, and yet it is one of tho smallest of about a dozen breweries in the city. It is not strange, therefore, that Cincinnati has become noted for its lager trade, nor is it remarkable that at nearly every step you find the sign "Lager Boer" hung out, announcing that this beverage can bo obtained -within. Nearly every one drinks beor in Cincinnati?men, ladies and children of all sizes. It said to be very hoalthy, and from the population of the Queen City wo would venture tho as? sertion, if it had not previously been es? tablished as a fact, that lager is .a flesh giving beverage. After our trip through the brewery we continued our ride, stop? ping at the inclino plane at THE HIGHLAND HOUSE long enough to get our carriages carried up. Here we were treated to refresh? ments by our host, and enjoyed the scenery rea- i. ig far up and down the Ohio River, and overlooking the city which lay some three hundred feet be? low. This house is a public resort, where refreshments are kept, and where every facility for the enjoyment of parties is afforded, from extensive dancing floors to tho luxuries of the table. From this point we drove through Eden Park, Avondale and. tho Walnut Hills to tho Zoological Gardens, whore a sumptuous dinner had been prepared for us as the guests of the Cincinnati Southern Rail? road, tho abundant appreciation of which was testified to by the hearty manner in which all present partook of tho viands which loaded down tho table. From this point we drove through Bumot Woods Park, a beautifully sloping and densely shaded stretch of two or three miles, and continued our ride on to Clifton, the most aristocratic and wealthy part of the suburbs of Cincinnati. Here the princes of fortune and rulers of society reside in extreme magnificence and repose. By the terms of the very charter of the city no business or manufacturing establish? ment can bo carried on in this section, so that none of tho bustle or smoke or dirt of the city can come about them. It is really a very magnificent and beautiful place. From this point we drove to tbe race-course, which is beautifully leveled and prepared for trotting or running. Next we went to the SPRINO OROVE CE2JETERY, which, though far inferior to Greenwood or to Hollywood in Richmond, is yet very handsome and beautiful. There have been about 34,000 interments in it, and very imposing monuments mark the resting places of many of the* dead. Among these the towering and highly polished granite column which stands silent sentinel above the grave of old John Robinson, of circus fame. He made a considerable fortune by his shows, and a very handsome monument has been erected to bis memory out of his abundant means. This cemetery occupies 600 acres, and tho Association having control of it was incorporated in 1845. It is, therefore, a monument to the public spirit and taste of tho citizens of Cincinnati. On our road back to the cicy wo stopped at the factory of LOUIS COOK <t CO., who are among the largest manufactories of carriages, buggies, &c, in the United States- Tho factory is an extensive one, and turns out very handsome work in large quantities. Wo then returned home, having spent a most pleasant day, for which we were indebted alike to Mr. Blackburne and tho Cincinnati Southern Road. The next day wo were occupied princi? pally with the excitement and rejoicing over the action of the Democratic Con? vention, which wo have heretofore spoken of. The whole city was ablaze with enthusiasm, and a grand rally and ratification occupied tho greater portion of the night. The following day tho members of tho Press Association presented to Mr. Blackburne a handsome gold-headed cane as a testimonial of their apprecia? tion of his personal attentions to us. The presentation was made by President Crews in an appropriate speech, and hap? pily responded to by Mr. Blackburne, after w inch short speeches were made by Col. Hoyt, Gen. Humph ill, Col. Farrow and others. Tho people of Cincinnati are hospitable, intelligent and energetic. They are prin? cipally Republicans, and have very little idea of the real condition of things in the South. Occasionally you wili meet onoofthein who has been down South and he will frankly admit that he wishes to see the Democrats retain possession of tho State governments in the South, but wants tho Republicans to retain the National government, becauso he thinks it safer for the Union, implying that there might be some danger to tho coun? try if the "rebels" became influential in the national administration; but by far the greater number think the condition ofthings down here is extremely lawless. We had intelligent men say to us that they had capital which they would in? vest do?vn South if it was safe, and if they could eutertain their political views withont proscription, and siemod really suprised when assured that South Caro? lina, the leader in Secession, was as or? derly and quietasOhio or Massachusetts. The closer connection between the South and West will rapidly dissipate this herosy of opinion, and at no distant day we may confidently look for an in? flux of Western capital and energy, which will greatly develop our country, and carry the South ahead of any other soction of tho Union in resources and material development. We have advan? tages of climate, water and health, which all their money cannot buy, and which are destined to render the South, and particularly this section of it, the most desirable and nourishing section of the Union. ? The Company formed for the pur? pose of mining the browu coal discovered last year near Augusta, by Prof. Bibikov, have uband oned the enterprise, not find? ing any prospective profit in it. ? A colored church near Savannah, Ga., was struck by lightning on Sunday night and smashed, injuring the preacher and killing his wife. ? According to a criminal who has applied in Pennsylvania for a pardon, there is a Horse Thieves' Union in the United States, extending as far South as Georgia and as far West as Indiana. The Convention in the Seventh Judi? cial District last week nominated Col. D. R. Duncan, of Spartanburg, for Solicitor, on the twenty-seventh ballot. The first twenty-six ballots stood : B. W. Ball, of Laurens, 6; Geo. Johns tone, of New berry, 4; David Johnson, of Union, 7 ; and the twenty-seventh resulted : D. R. Duncan, 0; B. W. Ball, 4; Geo. John stone, 4. Thus another dark horse, though an able man, has carried a con? vention. The nomination is generally acceptable. THE GREENVILLE RAILROAD. No Further Proceedings for Twenty Days? Mutnul Recriminations. Columbia, July 15. The expectation was that the first instalment of the purchase money for the sale of the Greenville and Columbia Railroad, due and payable here under the terms of sale to-day, would be made in accordance with those terms, but dur? ing the forenoon a telegram was received by Master N. B. Barnwell informing him that Judge Hudson had granted an order postponing all proceedings in the case for twenty days. A petition has been filed by the attorneys of W. P. Glide, T. M. Logan and Joseph Bryan, in which tbey allege that as a committee represent? ing holders of a large majority ofsecoud mortgage bonds of the Greenville & Col? umbia Railroad, they attended the sale in April last and bid on said property to the amount of ?3,393,000, at which price they claim the road was knocked down to them, and that they tendered the $20, 000 required by the terras of the sale to be paid in cash. The second allega? tion is that a protest was entered against the bidding being reopened after it was thought to have been closed. The third allegation is that during the progress of the bidding several messages were re? ceived from the party bidding against them proposing that he would cease bidding for a money consideration, which proposition they refused to con? sider. The fourth allegation is that a number of holders of se .ond mortgage bonds refused, after invitation, to unite with the petitioners for the protection of their interests, conspiring together to run up the price of the property in order that they might secure larger dividends on their bonds, without the intention or ability to comply with the terms of the sale or to purchase the road. To accom? plish said purpose parties notoriously insolvent were employed to appear as bidders at the sale. The fifth allegation states that parties who believed them? selves interested in having the road bring a higher price induced an irre? sponsible party to be present at the sale as a bidder. They claim that no bona fide bid ex? ceeding $2,393,600 was made, and that, after their names had been entered as the purchasers aud $20,000 paid to the Master, the Master had no authority to annul the purchase and reopen the bidding. These statements are substantiated by an affidavit of W. P. Clyde. On the other hand, parties who are opposed to the representations made in tnis statement, say that the whole affair is a plan concocted in Wall street, New York, as a speculation, aud that it was known two weeks ago that the purchas? ers could not comply with the terms of the sale. Parties interested on either side have equally strong opinions as to the purpose of the other; but as a matter of course what is proposed to be done will not be disclosed previous to a ''udi cial investigation. It is alleged by several gentlemen who are in a position to underhand Jie de? signs of the purchasers that the money is not lacking; that the whole amount is now in bank ready tobe used for the first instalment, but it is deemed best to await the decision of the court in reference to the point raised as to the legal bid at which the road was first knocked down to Mr. Courteuay. This extension of time, it is said, was granted in order to allow the buyers an opportunity of hav? ing tbe points settled by the Court. In the event of a decision being rendered adverse to the position assumed by the purchasers they will not appeal, and thereby prolong litigation and cause un? necessary delays, but will at once com? ply with their contract by paying down the stipulated sum of money. THE CASE OP COL. CASH. A Disgraceful Scene In Cheraw?No Ar? rests, aud the Offenders Iteturn to their Home. Charleston Sunday News. Cheraw, S. G, Saturday, July 16. Col. E. B. O. Cash and his son, W. B. Cash, accompanied by Col. Watts, of Laurens, came into town yesterday for the purpose of obtaining the release of Col. Cash on a writ of habeas corpus, and also with the avowed intention of attacking Mr. Pegues, the publisher of the local paper, The Carolina Sun, which in its comments on the recent duel, has expressed the general sentiment of the State. A threat of horse-whipping had been pr viously made by young Cash, who came to Cheraw some nights since to carry it out, but was persuaded by friends to relinquish his purpose. After a few days spent in a state of siege, the threatened journalist was assured by people of standing that the trouble was entirely over and was thus thrown olf his guard. Col. Cash and his son lounged about Front street all day, awaiting the arrival of Solicitor Sellers. Mr. Pegues, when going quietly home to dinner, passed the group sitting at a street corner aud eatiug watermelons. As he turned the coruer, his back being to them, young Cash drew his pistol, calling out: "Stop you d?d scoundrel," with other words to the same effect. The father threw off his coat and drawiug his pistol vowed that he "would see a fair fight." Some gentlemen forming part of the group hastily intervened and put Mr. Pegues out of reach, thrusting him into an open doorway and locking him up. There was cursing and threats of violence out? side for a while, which finally ended in an adjournment to the nearest barroom in company with the sheriff. There was great excitement. The Intendant was out of town, but a member of council was called upon to arrest the pair, which he declined to do, but said it should be done in the event of another demonstra? tion. In the meantime and until dark, having been warned that another attack was threatened, Mr. Pegues, who had made his way to his office, was forced to remained there ou guard, while free and uutrammellcd his assailants paraded the streets in the Aice of a community that nominally condemns their whole action. Mr. Solicitor Sellers arrived on the evening train ; a hearing was had before Judge Mclver, and Col. Cash was admit? ted to bail in the sum of three thousand dollars. The Solicitor at first demanded that the bail he fixed at twenty thousand dollars; then at ten thousand dollars; but the counsel for the accused succeeded in getting it reduced to three thousand dollars. No proceedings whatever were taken against young Cash for his cow ardlv attack upon Mr. Pegues, and he and "his father returned to Cash's depot, openly continuing their threats against the proprietor of the $?n. Col. Cash will be tried for murder at the September term in Darlington County. Tho News and Courier containing Gen. Butler's manly letter had been received before the party left town, and Col. JO. B. C. Cash indulged in some of his choicest expletives respecting it, vowing that he would give the Senator "a wooden heart to match his wooden leg," but without clearly indicating how this remarkable present was to be made. ARTHUR ACCEPTS. He Writes n Letter Ar a Very Small Tail Tor tin! Kvpublicuii Kite. New York, July 10. Gen. Arthur, Republican candidate for the Vice-Presidency, has written a letter to Hon. Gco. F. Hoar, accepting the nomination. In it he says the au? thority of the National Government to preserve from fraudulent elections, at which its own officers are chosen, is the chief point on which the two parties arc plainly and intensely opposed. Acts of Congress for tcu years have, in New York and elsewhere, done much to curb the violence and wrong to which the ballot and count have been again and again subjected, sometimes despoiling great cities, sometimes stifling the voice of a whole State afterseating not only in Con? gress, but on the bench and in the Leg? islature, numbers of men never chosen by the people. The Democratic party, since gaining possession of the two Houses of Congress, has made these just laws the object of a bitter, ceaseless as? sault, and, despite all resistance, has hedged them with restrictions, cunningly contrived to baffle and paralyze them. The Republican party ha-s strongly ap? proved of the stern refusal of the repre? sentatives to suffer an overthrow of the statutes believed to be salutary and just. It has always insisted that the Govern? ment of the United States of America is empowered, and in duty bound, to effectively protect elections denoted by the Constitution as national. It is a suggestive and startling fact that the increased power derived from the enfran? chisement of the race now denied its share in governing the country is wielded by those who lately sought to overthrow the government, and is now the sole reliance to defeat the party which repre? sented the sovereignty and nationality of American people in the greatest crisis of our history. Republicans cherish none of the resentments which may have animated them during the actual con? flict with arms. They long for a full and real reconciliation between the sections which were needlessly and lamentably at strife. They sincerely offer a band of good will, but they ask iu return a pledge of good faith. They deeply feel that the p*arty whose career is so illus? trious, in great and patriotic achieve? ments, will not fulfill its destiny until peace and prosperity arc established iu all the laud, nor until liberty, thought, conscience, action and equality of oppor? tunity shall be not merely cold formali? ties of statutes, but living birth rights which the humble may confidently claim and the powerful dare not deny. He in en? dorsing the civil service resolution and resumption policy, refers to the ques? tions of education, tariff, internal im? provements and improvement of water courses, and in conclusion, says: "There is danger iu entrusting the control of the whole law-making power of the Govern? ment to the party which has, in almost every Southern State, repudir.ed its obligations, quite as sacred as those to which the faith of the nation now stands pledged."
