Gen. Frnnk Blair'? latter Accepting
Hie Democratic Nomination.
WASHINGTON, D. G., July 21.
The following ia a copy of Gonoral
Blair's letter of neoeptance of tho
Democratic nomination fpr vice-Pre?
sident, which hos just been received
Oeil. George TT. Morgan, Ghair.nan
of tho Committee of fa National
' jjemoovalic Convention.
G -5NEKAL : I take the earliest op?
portunity of replying to your letter
notifying me of " my nomination for
vice-President of the United States,
by the National Democratic Conven?
tion, recently held in the city of New
I accept without hesitation the
nomination tendered in a manner so
gratifying, and give you and the
ommittee my thanks for the very
j kind and complimentary language in
which you haye conveyed to me the
decision of the Convention.
I have carefully read the resolu?
tions adopted by the Convention,
and .most cordially concur in every
principle and sentiment they an?
i My opinion upon all the questions
which discriminate the great con?
tending parties have been freely ex?
pressed on all suitable occasions, and
I do not deem it necessary nt thia
time to reiterate them.
The issues upon which the contest
turns are clear and cannot be ob?
scured or distorted by the sophis?
tries of our adversaries. They all
resolve themselves into tho old and
ever recurring struggle of a few men
to absorb the political power of the
nation. This effort, under everj
conceivable name and disguise, has
always characterized tho opponents
of the Democratic party, but at n<
time has the attempt assumed i
shape so open and daring as in th ii
contest. The adversaries of free an<
constitutional government, in de
fiance of tho express language of th
Constitution, have erected a militar;
despotism in ten of tho States of th
Union; have taken from the Presi
dent the power vested in him by th'
supremo law, and have deprived th
Supreme Court of its jurisdiction
the right of trial by jury and th
great writ of right, the habeas corpiu
shields of safety for every citizen
and whioh have descended to u
from the earliest traditions of oo
ancestors, and which our revolution
ary fathers sought to secure to thei
posterity forever, in the fundament*
charter of our liberties, have bee
ruthlessly trampled under foot b
the fragment of a Congress; whol
States and communties of people <
our race have been attainted, coi
victed, condemned and deprived <
their rights as citizens, without pr?
soutment or trial or witnesses, bi
by Congressional enactment of <
post facto laws, and in defiance of tl
Constitutional prohibition denyir
even to a full and loyal Congress tl
authority to pass any bill of attaind
or ex postfacto law. The same usur
ing authority has substituted i
olectors, in place of the men of 01
own race thus illegally attainted ai
disfranchised, a host of ignorant n
groes, who were supported in idlene
with the public money, and combim
together to strip the white race
their birth-right, through the m
nagemcnt of Freedmen's Burea
and emissaries of conspirators
other States; and, to complete t
oppression, the military power
the nation has been placed at tin
disposal, in order to make tl
barbarism supreme. Tho milita
leader under whose prestige tl
usurping Congress has taken rofng
since tho condemnation of th
schemes by the free people of t
North, in the elections of the li
year, and whom they have select
as their candidate to shield the
selves from the result of their o1
wickedness and crime, has announc
his acceptance of the nomination a
his willingness to maintain th
usurpations over the 8,000,000
white peoplo at the South, fixed
tho earth with his bayonet. He
claims: "Lot us have peace." "Pc
reigns in Warsaw," was the 1
nounoomont whioh heralded tho do
of tho liberties of a nation. "'J
empire is peace," exclaimed Bo
parte, when freedom and its
fenders expired under the sharp e<
of his sword. Tho peace to wh
Grant invites us is the peaco
despotism and death. Those \
seek to restore tho Constitution
the will of the people, condemn
the Reconstruction Acts already
nounced in the elections of last y<
(and which will, I am convinced,
still more emphatically oxpressed
the election of tho Democratic c
didato as President, of tho Uni
States,) are denounced as revoluti

maintain and support the Const
tion, tbe will of a fraction of a (
gress, reinforced with its part
emissaries sent to the South, and
(supported there by the soldiery,
must stand against the will of the
peoplo, and tho decision of tho Su?
preme Court, and the solemn oath of;
the President to maintain and sup?
port tho Constitution. It is revolu?
tionary to_ execute tho will of the
people; it is revolutionary to execute
the judgment of the Supreme Court;
it is revolutionary in the President to
keep inviolate his oath to sustain the
Constitution. This false construc?
tion of tho vital principle of our Go?
vernment is the last resort of those
who,,would have their arbitrary re?
construction sway and supersede our
time-honored institutions. The na?
tion will say the Constitution must
be restored and the will of the peo?
ple again prevail. The appeal to
the peaceful ballot to attain this end
is not War, is not revolution. They
make war and revolution who attempt
to arrest this quiet mode of putting
aside military despotism and the
usurpations of a fragment of a Con?
gress, asserting absolute power over
that benign system of regulated
liberty left us by our fathers. This
must be allowed to take its course.
This is the only road to peace. It
will come with the election of the
Democratic candidato, and not with
the election of that mailed warrior,
whose bayonets are now at the throats
of 8,000.000 people iu the South, to
compel them to support him as a
candidate for the Presidency, and to
submit to the domination of an alien
raco of semi-barbarous men. No
perversion of truth, or audacity of
misrepresentation, can exceed that
which hails this candidate in. arms as
an angel of peace.
I am, very respectfully, your most
