FAIRHOLME, NEAR DELAWARE, September 9, 1868. 1 My Dear Sir: I cannot subscribe to your last " deliverance," though for a period of more than thirty years I have had so much faith in. your honesty and capacity that I had come to regard your judgment in regard to public affairs as almost infallible. 1 " Admitting all you claim in regard to the - Republicans, U seems to me very clear that it is still safer to trust the party1 that wag in authority and earned the couutry safe through the war, than to put those., iu power who fought against the country, or who refused to co-operate1 with the party ot the; Union. I know it may be said that now many of those who were for tbe Union are not now with -the Republicans, and have united themselves with the Dem ocrats,.' This is true,buV the .' num ber is "so smal asnot mater ially' to change the character of that par ty. The old loeofocos and the old reb els, with all. their States' rights heresies, will have full control of the; party, and the Southern men, called by the low bred sycophants of the Democratic party in the North "high;toned Southern gen tlemen," will in the future as in the past, be in the lead. I think Seymour will be as pliant a tool in their hands as your poor old friend Buchanan was. I re member you told. me it was his want of courage that induced Jiim to allow Floyd and Jiis gang to control him. Let these desperate men once have a national in dorsement of their present attitude, with' the declaration in the platform that the reconstruction acts are "revolution ary,, illegal; and void,"' and who can predict the anarchy, confusion and vio lence that will follow in the Southern States I ' , What Northern jnan, or otber Union man can remain there in safety 1 I regret exceedingly the sweeping terms ;tri which' you speak of the men 'who bare V.j gone; South from the I Northern . States. I know : very 1 many ot them that; are eqnal in charac'trr to any men in the country, North or South, and they all tell the same story that is, that before the enactment lf the reconstruction meas ures, as' now, ' though treated ' with civility, they, are givea'to understand that they were not wanted there. There were, they said, exceptions, but this was the general rule. You know that in this respect the Southern people have always been extremely sectional. . .iiut they are as hostile and even more eo to native born citizens, who were opposed to them during the war or are opposed to them now. ,'llieir classiucation is this those who came there during or since the war, 'carpet-baggers, those who were there from the North before the war, "scala wags" and those who were born there and act with the Republicans, like Judge Hill or governor Brown, ot Georgia, are called white niggers. xour argument that we should sup port the Democrats this fall, because the Senate will hold them in check, is the samejput forth by . Seymour in his beg ging fetter ; but you know that his, as to the situation of matters in the South, would be no check at all. The verdict being in their favor at the election, there would be a reign of terror down there, as in 1861, which drove even such men as old John Bell to declare for the Con federate cause, or be assassinated. Gen eral Lee says they want peace and will behave themselves. And he will pledge himself that they will, if restored not only to civil and political rights, but to office, State and national. If they have everything their own way they probably will, and so they would in 1861. They did not want war then, for they had seen enough, at least such men as Lee had, to see that they would be whipped. But Lee is not a good judge of Southern opinion; he did not believe there would be secession in 1S61, and was opposed to it, still he went " with his section. as he will again, whenever it decides upon violence. . . lou say that at the end ot two years, if the Democrats don't prove themselves worthy, we can put them out; Oh ! my dear sir, if the elections were all sub ject to be controlled by you, or such men as you, this might do; but unfor tunately we know that they are not, aud that in fact good men have no more in fluence than bad ones. Ine rebels, and their old allies, the Loeofocos of the North, once in power, they may retain it until all we . gained by the war is thrown away.: . The Republican majori ty in Congress has been too large, and in consequence of this, and the folly : of the Jr resident, extreme and unwise meas ures have been adopted. - But in any event there will not be such a majority in the next Congress; and with a man of the firmness and will of General Grant, and his well-known generosity, we may expect with great conhdence a wise and judicious administration of af fairs. After all, what great evil can re sult from the reconstruction acts 7 They constitute an awkward and dangerous method of recovery from the disorganiz ation of civil government caused by the rebellion. The evil will be but tempo rary. Look at Georgia, where the white people have acted like men ot sense. Have we not here, even under these acts, a substantial and lair government established The negroes are to vote. Well, suppose they are 1 Is it right that so large a part of the population should be counted in representation and vet have no actual representation? Neither voting tliemselves nor others lor them, as iu the case of women and chil dren ? - There ought to be a restoration to civil and political rights; but I am not willing to say, as the rebel Generals claimed, and as seemed to be conceded at the New York Convention, that they were "as good as any of the men they fought against !" I am not willing thus to for get the glory of the cause our men fought for, to say nothing of their treasonable rebellion ! Nor, my dear sir, will it do to say that this is an unwise prejudice. Justice, alike to the living and the dead, requires that at least this distinction should be kept fresh in our memories By the way, did you notice the peculiar and carefully selected rhetoric in which Vallandigham spoke of the military fame of General Grant 1 After speak ing of him as the candidate of the Re publicans, and, therefore, as the repre sentative of their doctrine, &c., be adds: "Beyond this, he represents nothing to me but the: cold lava of the burnt-out volcano of the late civil war." There is a great deal of cold impudence in this, but I think it correctly represents : the fielingl if the leaders of the Locofoco party - in 'regard to the . record of our brave men in the war against the rebels 1their desire that instead of being for ever remembered with gratitude . by- the country, they should, as soon as possible, be. forgotten, as representing the most appalling evil, instead - of the glorious deeds of a patriot fighting for his coun try. ' - ! i ! I do not know that I fully understand your idea in regard to the payment of the national debt. If in a moral point of view the nation, as a debtor, in pay. ing borrowed money, is bound only to pay the real value of the ' money bor rowed, instead of the number of dollars called fori the same rule ought to be ob served in settling loans between individ uals that is, it ought to be regarded as inequitable 'to demand more than the actual value of the thing borrowed. But how is this to be ascertained ? I believe that in 1864 gold was as high as 280. Shall we, therefore, say that for every $2.80 loaned to the Government only $1 in gold should be paid I ; The fact is that, at that 'very time, a paper dollar was, tor many purposes, worth more than a paper dollar is tiow. ' The price of la bor and the price of land are much high er now than in 1864, in paper; and if the creditor had,' at that time, invested his money in land instead of public se curities, the investment would have been equal, probably, to the five-twenties pay able in gold. But your statement leaves undisposed -of the real and all-absorbing question involved in this matter. What is the Government to do with the cur rency I Are we to have a currency that shall be a standard of values, or are we, for an indefinite period, to have an irre deemable and depreciated currrencyf T. C. JONES. MR. EWING'S REPLY. LANCASTER, September 30, 1868. ! .. My Dear Sir Your favorif the 9th has been some time on hand, but a press, partly of business, mainly of indolence, has delayed my answer. , . I am not at all surprised at the views you express on the subject of my address of the 2d. You talk, and read and live on one - Bide of . the question only, and whatever strongly contravenes it must, I am well aware, impress you unfavorably: while I, on the other hand, not engaged in political or professional life, mixing freely with men of all par ties and having all the reliable sources of information open and present before me, have formed an opinion quite dif ferent from yours, and probably differ ent from that which I would have formed in your situation. You have read the brief on one side. I have examined and we:ghed the case carefully on. both, with a most earnest desire to sustain, if possible, the party to which very many of my old friends and political associ ates belonged; that I would not do it was their fault, not mine, for I warned them repeatedly of the gulf which they were opening between us, which it were impossible for me to pass without an abandonment of all my life-long cher ished principles; and while these events were passing, I stood on ground which precluded all possible supposition that I had an nndue bias on the side on which you think I err, that is, towards secession, its consequent revolt, er iu favor of those who committed it. I have during all my political life spoken and written against the right of nullification and secession. And at the opening of the late contest, from the very first, and as long as my physical strength endured, I publicly addressed the people, calling upon the young men to volunteer, and the aged and rich to contribute funds to support the families of the patriotic sol diers who volunteered to fight in defense of the Constitution and the Union. In this, Judge Ranney, Allen, and other old school Democrats, took the stand with me. It was not a party, but a National, a . Union movement, and 1 did not propose then, nor do I intend nowi to slide into a party which by its reckless violence is destroying both the Union and the Republican government under which alone it exists. 1 have tour sons and two sons in law. six in all. When an armed force became nec essary, five of the six volunteered of these all but one, who was disabled by a wound, served during the war, and fought in more than twenty battles, be ginning at Bull Run and ending at the grand review in Washington; and of these four, no one was lees than twice promoted for good conduct on the field of battle. . It is cool for gentlemen to talk to me of their achievements and ar rogate the right to govern the nation because they saved it, when few of them rendered more efficient service- in the hour of trial than I, and the millions who think: and act with me. And the most that many of those did who claim most merit, and are most clamorous and exacting, was to manufacture shoddy, and, with it, to cheat the Government in clothing furnished our troops. In the beginning of the contest it was of paramount importance to secure the co operation of the border states, es pecially Kentucky; and to this end I held consultation with Mr. Crittenden, and at his request, he being iu feeble health but strong in the ruling passion devotion to the union 1 drew up the resolutions which bear his name, which, without the change of a word, passed the two houses with but three dissenting voices. 1 intended them in good faith, and so they were received by the border States; but that faith was violated by Congress at its first session after the surrender ot the rebel army, and the dissolution ot the Confederate government, and this breach of faith has produced all the anarchy and most of the evils which have since distracted the nation. I have washed my hands of it, and of the party who committed, and still persist in asserting aud sustain ing it. The old Whig party, to which you and I belonged, was a sincere and r i o :.v. i, tt:.. trUtUIUl pally. OU wim mo umuu pai- tv of 1861: they violated no obliga tions, leaal or constitutional; they broke no faith, but held due on to the execu tion of their iust and lawful purpose and I am too long taught in their school to now join in, or knowingly give coun tenance to. a lawless or faithless politi cal combination, however powerful or imposing, or however largely composed of those who once acted with me and were mv friends. Whether justly or not, I am proud of the part which my tamuy Dore in tne late conflict.and am not at all afraid that their laurels will be tarnished by the ob servance of strict good faith with the vanquished, who have yielded the prin ciple fought for an laid down their arms. No, nor even' by . extending to their wounded, feelings, their prejudices and opinions a liberal, and even a generous indulgence.; Indeed, I think the just and liberal is the wiser as well as the more honorable policy. We are more likely to restore our erring brethren. in heart and feeling to the Union, and to heal the wounds caused by the late ter rible conflict, by the observance of strict good faith, and a conscientious observ ance of our constitutional obligations toward them, than by assuming superior ity over them, , heaping on them con tumely and reproach, and sending spies among them to slander and misrepre sent them. . You express Jean that if Seymour and Blair are elected, they will reinitiate secession, and that we shall lose all we have gained by the war.. A a reasoning man', do you think sol Do you ..think the intelligent men of the South are in love with secession and its consequences,, under which they have endured such terrible calamities, or that because they are treated with justice and mercy, they will immediately rush into another destructive war ? for myself 1 think that the only danger of another re volt lies in the continuance of, the present party in power, and of their lawless poll cy made up of mingled insult ana oppres sion such as men of ordinary spijit, who have once been, freemen, would, die sooner than endure. ' Men who have been free will not submit 'to ' permanent degrada tion ... aud ' political servitude or even inferiority.' When this is known to be the fixed, stern and relentless policy, they, will resist by force ' of arms, and in that event their resistance i will be justified on the univers ally acknowledged principle of the right of revolt against intolerable op- pression. Had the same cause existed in 1861 which now exists, no Northern army would have crossed the Ohio river to put down the revolt. ' You express fears that -t .t -it - i 51 tne XNonn win countenance secession ii Seymour and Blair are elected. In the present state of things, and' ther present party permanently in power,; that were possible; for, the." fierce 'passions of conflict having subsided, the mass of mankind sympathize with the conquered, especially if insulted an.d oppressed; but elect an administrtion disposed to re store them where they were before the revolt and I see see no rational proba bility, that the 100,000 majority in Ohio which recorded their votes -against se cession, and in favor of subduing it - at any cost, will at once change sides, with out the shadow of a reason, and sustain it, '...;.- ; I have looked the condition of things full in the face and write down my deep convictions.- ' There is danger of another civil war.-.--1 deplore the threatened mischief, and have done all I can to avert it, and still hope the bitter cup will pass from us. But the party in power are resolutely fixed in exciting to the utmost, and keeping up to their highest intensity, the fiefce and angry passions of men, and it were vain for them to expect ferocity on one side, and calm endurance on the other. Their policy continued will force on collision, which let them in prudence avoid. The moral and physical power of the nation is against them; they can proscribe vo ters and manipulate elections, but their power will fail against men, embodied and under arms, where each man counts, whether cheated of; his vote or not ; and in this arbitrament they would be but as one to three. The war.if they really force it on, will not be strictly section against section tbe South will be united, the North divided it will be like the war between the Guelphs and Ghibil ines, which, for more than two hundred years, desolated Italy, and in which Caesare Borgia practiced the lessons in political morality which Senator Morton has been taught to adopt and practice, by our five years of war. If he had re vised hisreading of Machiavelli's Prince, it would have deprived his lessons of the charm of novelty, as he would have found it in full Dractice many hundred years ago, and by looking a little further he would have found fliat it peopled Dante's hell even to its ninth . circle, with more than half its tenants. It were better for the country, better for the party, that Congress sjiould not re assemble on the 15th. If they meet, they can not possibly abstain from in terfering in the Southern elections, un less, indeed, they be overawed by a strong Northern vote; it is the sole bus iness for which they are to be called again together, and they will feel bound to act. There are some things in yourletter not quite worthy of you or of the subject we discuss. You say my suggestion as to the power of tne Senate to prevent legisla tion, is the same as contained in Sey mour's "begging letter" an insinuation that I borrowed the opinion from him, whereas you well know that mentally I never deal in borrowed capital. The trnth is, I had written down the passage referred to, iust as it now reads, weeks before I saw Mr. Seymour's letter, and the thought does not suffer(do you think it does i) by occurring to two indepen dent minds at the same time. ' ' You call Seymour's a "begging letter."- .You must be at a loss for something to object to; it struck me as in decidedly good taste unexceptionable in matter and expression. I know little of him, personally, but, if in all else he fa equal to this, he will do. You certainly have no warrant for the opinion that he will fall nnder the influence of Toombs and Hampton. He certainly never yet acted under their influence as General Grant did under that of Stanton and Wade, when he gave Stanton a file of United SUtes troops to enable him to " stick and bayonet the President if he should attempt to enter the department. There is no more reason to suspect Seymour of subserviency to disloyal councils than a"nv other, the best man in the nation On .the whole, I would rather have your opinion two years hence on the present political condition, than now. I remain, very truly yours, T. EWING. Hon. T. C. Jones, Delaware, Ohio. Will speak at Osborn, Green county, on Friday evening, Oct.
