The Vindicator is evidently unset tied by the possibility of such a " ring ing " platform being adopted by the national convention, and suggests that our delegates to Cincinnati had bet terl have an understanding." Yes, and. the people of the South who so per sistently cling to the Democratic party ought to have an understanding, also -an understanding of the fact that the principles and policy of that par ty, especially with reterence to internal improvements and protection of home industries-matters all im pot arrt to the South at this tinur are diametrically opposed to their best interests. , TGE BEATrTIE18 DEOLiINATION Unforthfevte ,. the report of Judge 3eattie's withdrwal front the field ats; :candidate f Congrosi romn thfs district is verified by the following formal letter of deelination -Taosta7 n cz, Li ,Jane ll I880G, Hon. Tbeo. Fontelien. Chairman of Repub lihe Comzjttie, Third Congressional District: Bic-O rcumstanees now beyond my control and unknown to me'at the time It accepted the do ination, preycpt me fromt being a canididate for Congjress: to my opiton it is nostsy for-the Repub licah party to carry this district-neecs sary for the party and necessary for the interests of our great-staple. Under the present aspect of political affairs, it would be difienultnot to select a candi date who would prove stronger ii the race than myself. -Firmly believing this, and yielding to what I conceive to be due to the party and to myself, I have come to the conclusion above stated. Through you, I tender to the party my heartfelt thanks for the unanimous nom ination given nuder pressure of great party heat, and promise that all my power will be put forth to promote the success of our principles and the election of Garfield and Arthur. I respectfully suggest that a conven tion be at once called to name a candi date, Very respectfully your obedient servant, TAYLOR BEATTIE. There is but one conclusion to be drawn from this letter concerning the reason which induced its appearance, and-this is, that Judge Beattie be lieves the complications and ill feel ing resulting from the split in the party as a State olganization which occurred on the 24th of May, will so affect his Congressional candidacy as to lose to the Republicans, should lie remain in the field, the only Congres sional district in the State which they are reasonably certain of carrying in the approaching contest. We are bound to recognize the sin cerity of the Judge's opinion, and the spirit of self-sacrifice and devotion to the interests of the party representing his political convictiins which is dis played by his voluntary relinquish ment of the Congressional nomination in a Republican district. The motive which actuated the withdrawal does him credit as a Republican and a gen tleman, but we strenuously dissent from his view of the situation and contend that he places an exaggera; ted estimate upon the character and extent of the opposition that would be made to his election, It is only natural that the exciting events of the 24th of May-the holding of two State conventions, which sent rival delegations to Chicago-followed by a spirited contest between those del egations for recognition'fromn the na tional convention, should have engenu dered considerable bitterness and bad blood among the leaders of the con - tending factions, but now that the heat of this fight has subsided, we can not presume that sufficient animosity is cherished by the Republican oppo nents of Judge Beattie's course in the contest from which they have emerged victorious, to lead them to strike a parricidal blow at the Republican party by maneuvering to defeat the one Congressional candidate it has a favorable prospect of electing in this State. Even if such a disposition ex isted, we seriously doubt the willing ness of any Republican leader or leaders to assume responsibility for a movement of this character. The ex periences and results of the division and defeat of the Republicans in this district two years ago will inot be for gotten, anti their memory will cxer cise a salutary influence upon any Republican headers and officials who might otherwise have the temerity to engage in a conspiracy to defraudI their party of the only vestige of vic tory which remains to be won in this State by unison and harmony. IEnlarged and highly colored reports of Custom-House animosity towards Judge Beattie have doubtless reached that gentleman's ears, and similar re ports concerning his seutiments and feelings have probably led the officials of the granite buihling to apprehend that Judge Beattio would, if elected to Congress, wage upon them a bitter and persistent warfare. Beliting that both sides are laboring under misapprehension anu misunderstand ing that can be obviated by the heal ing influences of time and the exer cise of a little mutual forbearance and discretion, we solemnly protest against the opportunity for success being sacrificed by a failure to bring these conciliatory agencies to bear in the present emergency. We reiterate our conviction that Judge Beattie would draw a heavy vote from the Democratic ranks if he stands for Congress, and this accession would wore than compensate for any possible Republican defection caused by the machinations of the few msen who might be disposed to value the gratification of personal spite above the achievement of party success. If the election of Judge Beattie can be jeopardized by the influence of such men, there will be far less hope of carrying the district for any one of the candidates yet suggested as his successor. Messrs. Darrall of St. M rMary, Merchant of Ibkria, Drury of Assumptiou, Hebert of Iberville, and Marks and Bentley of Ascension have been mentioned in this connection. All of these gentlemen are connected with faction contests in their respec tive parishes, or were implicated in the district complications of 1873, and the candidacy of any one of them would almos; inevitably excite faction jealousies and reopen old sores that would render success .eevedingly problematical. Furthermire, inne of theoe parties cIld iope to reive a tithe ofeth aeo rvLive tivbnd Dai ocratic support whicl would be ac corded to Judge Beaittie; and we hope `nne will take offense if we suggest that the Judge also heads the list in point of ability, fitness and the influ ence he co- M wield in bebaif of the material interests of the district. The 'Cuits peisists in holding and strenuouslyl advocating the opinion that the witbhdrawalof JudgeBeattie is a. party and public ntsfortune that should be repaired, if possible, by so liciting' from him a reconsideration of his letter of declination. The distie executive committee will meet 'at Morgan City next Thursday, July 1, for the purpose of considering Judge Beattie's letter," and we urge upon that body the propriety of delaying the convocation .f another nOmina ting convention until all reasonable efforts have been made to bring back into the field the candidate who re ceived the spontaneous and unani mnous vote of the district convention held in New Orleans so recently as one month ago yesterday. This as sembly represented both the so-called Custom-House and Grant wings of the party hnd its work met the unan imous approval of the Republican vo ters of the district. There is no good reason why its action should be sub verted now. On the contrary, every consideration of sound policy, public and party interest demands that the candidate then named shall remain in the field. AOXLEN VINDICATED. We are in receipt of a copy of the tardy report of the Judiciary Com mittee of the national House of Rep resentatives with relation to the charge made against Mr. Acklen, member of Congress from this Dis trict, by his colleague Hon. J. Floyd King of the Fifth Louisiana District, and we are not sorry to note the complete vindication of our member from the serious imputation which the affair had cast upon his character. The gist of the accusation, as most of our readers will remember, was that, on the 13th of January last Mr. Acklen attempted to procure, " un der pretended authority from Mr. King, or otherwise, the printing of a document as a report from the Com mittee on Foreign Affairs, when in fact that committee had not agreed to any such report, or authorized the same to be made." We can not spare space for the re production of the report of the Judi ciary Committee in its entirety, and iyideed it is not necessary that we should do so, since a few brief ex tracts from the document will serve every essential purpose. The com mittee says. In order that there might be no pre text on the part of any one for any com plaint or even suspicion of partiality or intentional injustice, whatever its con clusion might be, your committee per mitted the investigation to take the widest possible range. Every witness within reach of the process of the House, who was supposed to be able to throw the least light whatever upon the sub ject, was summoned, and the utmost latitude allowed in the examination of each of them, and it is the opinion of your committee that the summary of facts, as stated by Mr. Acklen, is not only consistent with reason, but cor roborated by the evidence herewith sub uitted. * * It is in evidence, moreover, that sev eral members of the Conunittee on For eign Affairs were on the floor at the time, and the idea that any sane man would rise in their presence an-i boldly attempt to palm off or ask to have prig Ad as their report a paper to which they had never agreed when any or all of them might have instantly conifronted hinm with a denial of its authenticity aid Yxposed the falsehood in the face of the House and the country, seems to your comunittee too preposterous to be entertained for a moment, and it is equally incredible, without the most convicing proof, that such an attempt could have been made even had every member of the committee been absent at the time, for it must have been obvious to any rational mind that a paper thus surreptitiously published as the report of a committee could not possibly have been used or referred to as such without leading to the exposure of the fraud and the inevitable disgrace of its perpetra tor. Nor have your committee been able to discover in the evidence the slightest trace of any rational motive which could have tempted Mr. Acklen to a pro ceeding so unnecessary in itself, and so hazardous to his own reputation either for personal integrity or common sense. Your committee would therefore re spectfully recommend that the matter be laid on the table and no further ac tion taken therein. The suggestion of the committee was adopted by the House, and thus ends an unfortunate affair which we, in corumnon with many of Mr. Acklen's constituents, were at first blush dis posed to construe to his disadvantage. The Sabine Index erroneously at tributes to the CuiEF the inquiry made bh the Terreboune Chronicle respect ing the omission of the civil and polit ical equality clause from the oath of office prescribed in the new coustitu tion. We responded as follows: The clause was omitted, we presume, because it was entirely superilous. ]The civil and political rights of all nmen are recognized and guaranteed by the con stitution and laws of the United States and of Louisiana, and every official is re quired to subscribe to the oath I will support the constitution and laws of the € nited States and of this State; that I nwill faithfuly and impariilsy discharge all the duties incumbent upon me, etc. There is no more necessity for inserting in this oath a special refemence to the rights of citizens than there is for speci fving any other particular subject re ferred to in the 26; articles of the consti tution or the laws enacted thereunder. THE DEItOOUATI0 LOMIOE S. For: President, 161-. WI-NFIELD 8. HANGOOR F P sYstVANIA. For Vice P'reident, Hio. WILLIAM H. ENGLISH, OF INDIANA. . This is the ticket nominated on the second ballet taken in the Cincinnati convention, and-itmay be candidly acknowledged the strongest ndi least otije tna mble the 'iemocratlcr irty has put forth since. Buchanas's elec5 tion in 1856. The copvention met o6 Tuesday and elected Judge gorge Hoadley of Ohio temporary chairman. There were only two contests to be consid ered by the committee on credentials -one from: Massachusetts, the other from New York. In the first case the regular and Butler delegations har monized and agreed to accept a half vote each. The Kelly delegation from. New York, elaihing twenty seats out of the seventy to which the State was entitled, was excluded by a decisive majority. Gen. J. W. Stevenson of Kentucky was chosen permanent president, with. a vice president and secretary from each State. The first ballot for a presidential nominee was taken Wednesday eve ning, with the following result: Hesncock......171 feudricks,.....491 Bayard,..------1661 'Tilden, .......-38 Payne, ------- 81 Seymour, ...... 8 Thurman....... 68j Loveland,...... 5 Field,--------- 65 McDonu1d,..... 3 Morrison...... 62 Randall, ....... 3 McClellan, 2; Lathrop, Black, Parker, English, Jewett and Ewing, 1 each. The second ballot, taken Thursday morning, was marked by a stampede to Hancock, who received 705 votes, against 30 for Hendricks, Bayard 2, Tilden I. The Kelly men from New York concurred in the action of the convention and promised support to the ticket. Mr. English was nomina ted for VicePiesident by acclamation. The platform we shall publish here after. Hancock, a good Union General, would have been a comparatively weak candidate against Grant, a bet ter Union General, but no stronger man could have been selected to make the race against any Republican can. didate except Grant. The bloody shirt has no doubt been eliminated from the campaign, but the solid South is more solid than ever, and I the North will be the seat of war for the great electoral contest of 1880. New York and Indiana are the two doubtful States whose votes are ex pected to decide the issue. The re sult of Indiana's State election in Oc tuber will be awaited with deepest interest as a skirmish which may in dicate the outcome of the great battle to take place a month later. A number of kind and too partial friends have suggested the editor of the CHIEF as a proper successor to Judge Beattic as Republican nominee for Congress in this district. The Morgan City Free Press recommends our nomination in flattering terms. We lack words to express adequately our sense of obligation towards these appreciative friends and our estima ble colleague of the Free Press, but they may be assured that their unso licited, unexpected and therefore sin cere evidence of regard will ever be cherished in our heart of hearts as one of its most pleasaut memories. We recognize the fact, however, that we are sadly deficient in the elements which constitute an available candi date-one combining high character and capacity with public experience, influence and popularity-and we ask our generous friends to aid the effort which the CHIEF is making to keep such a candidate in the field. Judge Taylor Beattie is the man for the po sition and the people of the district should unite in demanding that he, make the race. It will give us more gratification to be instrumental in securing his election than to receive a nomination accorded nuder the un fortuitous circumstances more than likely to surround the selection and candidacy of any prominent Republi can in the district except Beattie. rank Leslie's Popular Monthly. The July rnumber of this popular mag azine brilliantly commences the new volume, and is even more than usually attractive and interesting. Among its prominent features are an article by N. Robinson, "The British House of Com urous," which has 20 illustrations and portraits; "How the Japanese Amuse Themselves," by Edward GrecyI "The Fals of the Past and Present," by Dora de Blaquiere ; both articles are liberally and admirably illustrated, as is likewise " The Eye and its Use," by William Ack royd. The interesting serial" Not Guil ty," is continued, and there are excellent short stories and sketches by popular writers. An article by Mr. Matthews on " Wm. C. Macready " will not fail to at tract considerabie attention. It has a graphic description of the Astor Place Riot. The poems possess great merit, and some of them are beautifully illus trated. The number, in fact, abounds with delightful reading, and as a literary and artfstic publication may challenge comparison with the best of its contem poraries. Each number contains 123 quarto pages and about 100 embellish nrents, together with a handsome colored frontispiece; in the present one the sub ject is "A Morning Kiss for Dear Main ma." The price is only 25 cents a num ber, ard the annual subscription $3, postpaid. Address, Frank Leslie's Pub lishin<, House, 53, 55 and 57 Park Place, New York. Hon J.
