THE LAST DEMOCRATIC ROORBACK BACK ABOUT GARFIELD AND THE DEGOLYER PAVEMENT. A DOWNRIGHT FORGERY ! PERPETRATED BY A CORRESPONDENT OF THE NEW YORK WORLD. A PRETENDED SUPREME COURT OPINION MANUFACTURED OUT OF WHOLE CLOTH. Seeing the utter failure of their previous attempts to prove Gen. Gar field guilty of anything wrong in the DeGolyer business, the Satanic por tion of the Democratic press has for the last week or t.vo been industri ously circulating and chuckling over a most outrageous falsehood, origina ting in the N. Y. World, which is ap parently trying to rob its great rival, Dana, of the Sun,"of his well-earned laurels as the champion "fraud and corruption" shrieker of the age. The Washington correspondent of the World, under date of July ioth. sent that paper the following pretended extract from a decision said fo have been rendered by Justice Sivayne of the U. S. Supreme Court : "The agreement with Hen fVir field, a member of Congress, to pay him $5,000 as a contingent fee. for procuring a contract which was it self made to depend upon a future appropriation by Congress, which appropriation could only come from a committee of which he was Chair man, was a sale of official influence which no vail can cover, against the plainest principles of public policy. No counsellor at law while. hnlinir a high office has a right to put himself in a position ot temptation, and, un der pretense of making a legal argu ment, sell his official influence upon public officers dependent upon his future action. Certainly the courts of justice will never lend themselves to such contracts obtained by such influence." It turns out, as might have been expected, that no such decision was ever rendered by Justice Swayne, and no such language ever used by him. Hon. Sam'l Shellabarger, of the Republican National Committee, immediately set about investigating the matter, and found that the -language attributed to Justice Swayne was used by ex-Senator Doolittle, in his brief as an attorney for one Chit tenden, who had a suit with one of ;he owners of the DeGolyer pave pavement. The World correspond ent has since explained that he found the extract in a Washington paper and forwarded it to the World, sup posing it to be genuine, but the edi tor of the World refused -to admit that it was a fabrication, even after his attention had been called to the fact. The World has accomplished its object, and sent the falsehood broadcast over the country, but many who read it will never see the con tradiction and proof of its falsity- At last Justice Swayne himself settles the outrageous lie by publishing the following ; "I never wrote a word of what is attributed to me with quotation marks. I never knew anvthinf of the j 0 - facts of the matter charged against Lieneral Oarfield, and it was cer tainlv never in anv sh.ine hefnre the j J L Supreme Court. I had, therefore, neither occasion nor opportunity to express any judicial opinion upon me suuject. it is not statea wnere any case in which General Garfield was concerned is reported. My con fident impression is. that1 1 never heard of such a case before. Gen eral Garfield is a personal friend of mine, and I have the highest confi dence in his integrity. The state ments in the World are an entire fabrication, and without a particle of truth to sustain them. The Democratic Record. The Omaha Republican puts it very truthfully and forcibly, as fol lows : According to the Democratic creed it was wrong to coerce a State in 1861 ; in 1S62 there must be a vigorous prosecution or war to co erce States; in 1863 Hancock saved the country at Gettysburg; in 1S64 the war was a failure ; in 1S66, re joicing in the success of the war, State sovereignty was reiterated ; ii) 1S68 the constitutional amendmer-s were a league with hell; in 1870, though still wrong, they were neces sary; in 1872 they were both wrong and unnecessary, and from 1876 to 1SS0 the whole party policy has pointed to the end that ' every vis tage" of legislation looking to the enforcement of the amendments of freedom shall "be swept away." On the financial issue the Democratic record has been alike consistent : denunciation of the legal tender act in 1S62 ; unlimited greenbacks in i86S ; a pledge to specie resumption in 1S72 ; unconditional repeal of the resumption act in 1S76 ; and a union of fiatism and mono-metalism in 1880. Will somebody inform us how it is that the ig, the best, truest, most coura geous and unselfish of man's friends, is used in various expressions as indicative of everything that is bad? An obstinate scoundrel is t.Tniod "dogged ;" a lying scamp a "hound," a coward a "cur," and a brainless idiot a "puppy-" I'he road to ruin is called "going to thedogs." This is not fair te the dogs.- I 1 ' Convention Clash. j The following notes on the late Dcmoeralic Convention held in our ! city are taken from the Chillicothe 1 (Dem.) Advertiser : Well, little Pike didn't get there ' after all, neither did Ross for that I matter, but we should like to know j why a county with 4,500 Democratic ; votes should surrender to one with ; 2,100. At the last Congressional elec tion in which lioss and Pika were I associated, Pike had the candidate, i Had Pike voted with Ross, there is no doubt Mayo would have been 1 nominated on the second ballot. I But you may ask, why did not Ross viw nitiu J. ina lui IT KCUUU1U . Simply because Pike had no claims on ns, while Ross had as above shown. We Lave-beard a great many of our people express themselves rela tive to the political situation, and very many were of the opinion that the claims of Adams and -Brown were paramount, although they would have been heartily glad if Mavo bad been nominated. This feeling will go very far toward heal ing wounds, if any, that were made, or might have been if Roas county had not had a reasonable share of the official loaves and fishes of the District. There may come a time when Pike county may very greatly desire the vote of Ross county, but Pike's delegation at Hiilsboro did not in spire a vast amount of enthusiasm in the breasts of Ross county peo ple. If we didn't get "John Peter' from Brown, we got a "John P.," who will fill the measure. Pike may be a palatable fish, but the denizens of Ross will not hanker aft'T it. Little Pike did it, and Mayo's friends comprehend the joke. SOUTH CAROLINA "FRIENDLY ADVICE." WHAT REPUBLICANS MAY EXPECT. IF THEY DARE ASSERT THEIR RIGHTS. Under the heading, "Some Friend ly Advice," the Greenville (S. C.) News of June 24, prints a leading editorial, reading as follows : "Mr. Spear, who acted as chair man of the first radical meeting of the approaching campaign, and his political associates Wilson Cook and others would do well to take advice. The white men of the State desire a peaceful summer and au tumn. They are weary of heated political strife. If they are forced into vigorous action, it will be ex ceedingly vigorous perhaps unpleas antly so. The mass of the colored people are contented under Demo cratic government. They rest in the quiet conviction that their con dition is improved over what it was four years ago, and that no man's rights are disregarded. If they are aroused to the support of an assort ment of thieves and malicious igno ramuses, which is the only ticket that can possibly be constructed by the Radical party, it will only be by the persistent and laborious efforts of the leaders. On those leaders the consequences will fall heavily. We have tested kindness and con ciliation for four years; some think too much. If they are proved to have failed, the opposite means will be experimented with. If these men acted from misguided party zeal they could be forgiven. If they had wrongs to redress we could sym pathize with them. Even a selfish desire for place and perquisites would be condoned. But they are actuated by none of these motives. The only conceivable cause for their attempts to renew almost forgotten strife, and subject the State to a re newal of the scenes of 1876, is pure malice ; for they know that they can not win. Those who cause the trouble will suffer most from it. Bear that in mind, persons, colored or white skinned. The contests sought to be forced upon us are not to decide questions of policy or principle between opposite political parties. They are the struggles of the real people of the State for her life, and honor, and civilization, dur ing which society is demoralized, and material and other interests nec essarily suffer. Repetition of these every two years will not be submit ted to. The voracious Wilson Cook, in a somewhat apish and grotesque manner, revealed the spirit that animates himself and his masters, from which he has recently been drawing inspiration from the North. His abuse of the two Senators, and wild advice to emigrate, show an im potent desire to injure the South by some means, or any means. We re iterate our advice to the voracious Cook, and the argumentative and pro found Spier, to be careful how they go, and not stir up the animals too freely. They have teeth and claws." Detroit. Bro. Shearer, of the Marysville Tribune, has been rusticating on the lakes, and writes to his paper : We have been in many of the cities of America but Detroit surpasses them all in the grandeur of its out lines. The city contains about 120, 000 people, the streets are wide and as neat as a parlor. The buildings are massive and have a fresh appear ance that you can find about no oth er city. The pavements are all smoothly and evenly laid. The parks are paragons of beauty. Spacious side lawns on some of the streets have been planned with special reference 'to the best effect. The business buildings, wholesale houses, even down to the manufactories, are pa latial in their appearance. The drainage of the entire city is as near perfect as it can be, and you look in, vain for the "ragged edges" which so often mar the beauty of cities. Summer Correspondence. [Correspondence of the News. LETTER FROM ILLINOIS. A GRAND REPUBLICAN DEMONSTRATION. THE SUCKERS WIDE AWAKE. DUQUOIN, Ill., Aug. 2, 1880. Mr. J. L. , Boardman Dear Sir : Last Thursday was the occasion of a great Republican demonstration in this city. Residents of Duquoin say it was the biggest day Duquoin has ever seen. I never witnessed such en thusiasm at a political meeting in my life even Democrats were hurrah ing for Garfidd and Arthur! At night the city was brilliantly illumin ated with thousands of lamps and Chinese lanterns-, while a torchlight procession, three-quarters of a mile long, paraded the streets. The principal speakers were, Sena tor John A. Logan, Governor Cul lom, and Stephen A. Douglas. There were but four persons arrested for disorderly -conduct, and three of them were Democrats. Thinking it might be of some in terest to you, I have taken the liber ty of sending you a "Chicago Trib une," which contains a tolerably cor rect account of the proceedings. Very respectfully yours.

Anthony, H rper Co., Kan., ) July 29, i83o. ) ' We never do anything by halves in Kansas. Just nov everything is very promising for our young coun ty. We feel certain of an abundant corn crop. Roasting-ears have been plentiful ever since the first of the month. Water-melons are on the market, so are also more substan tial articles that go to make up what is known as "garden-truck." So far, most of us have had to buy our provisions and feed, and go from 20 to 50 miles after it at that. Now that we can begin to use sup plies of our owa raising, we feel very independent. Our railroads are causing more ex citement now than any other topic. Six months ago very few of us be lieved that we could have a railroad nearer than Wellington, the county seat of Sumner county, for time in d;finite. Now we are certain of iivo. The Southern Kansas & Western a branch of the Leavenworth, Lawrence & Galveston is located as far west as Harper City. A heavy force of graders are a: work, and the track is being laid down at the rate of a mile each day. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe R. R, Co. have lately become alarm ed for the safety of their southwest ern cattle shipping business, and have started an extension of their Wellington branch calling it the Wellington & Weston The two roads cross each other at Wellington, which places the W & W. South of her opponent Both roads are al ready west of the Chikaskia river, with their grading. At Milan, 16 miles west of Wellington, they are only one mile apart, but there they begin to widen the distance. Where they cross the county line they are 2i miles from each other. What a splendid place for a race when trains begin to run ! Twenty-five miles in of each other. CHIKASKIA. [Correspondence of the News. LETTER FROM LAKE ERIE. A DELIGHTFUL SUMMER RESORT. LAKESIDE S. AND TEMPERANCE ENCAMPMENTS. VISITORS FLOCKING IN FROM ALL QUARTERS. CATAWBA ISLAND, O., Aug. 3, 1880. Editor News : The Sunday School Encampment, at Lakeside, has just closed, and the Temperance Meet ing, under the management of ladies, commences to-day. Last year this meeting was conducted by the male portion of the Temperance organiza tion, and was not a success. Camp Meeting begins Aug. 6th. Many new cottages have been built this summer, and Lakeside presents the appearance of a good-sized town, nestled among the oaks and elms on the rock-bound shore. The Normal School and encamp ments were both well attended, and more successful than last year, and the Camp Meeting, it is expected, will go far ahead of any previous meetings. Excursion tickets to the Islands and Lakeside, I believe, are. to be had at the principal towns and cities of the State. Fare from Springfield, O., to Lakeside and return, S5. A daily hack runs from Lakeside to Catawba Island, carrying passen gers for 40 cents. Mauy of the guests at Lakeside are availing themselves of this oppor n nity to U'ke a delightful ride throrgh a beautiful country to this, the most charming point long the shores of Lake Erie. The three boarding houses here are all full cf guests at present. At the Lake View House, J. W. Gamble, proprietor, there are 8 gentleman from Pittsburg, and Dr. R. L. Evans, wife and son, of Toledo, Col. D. F. DeWolf, of Toledo, and his son from Cleveland, Miss Kate Hartman, from Pittsburg, and Miss Fannie G. Camp, from Columbus. Next week there will be a party of ladies and gentle men from Pittsburg, numbering 60 or 70. They will go into camp cn the bluff, near here, and the ladies of the party will board at the Lake Side, Linden and Island Houses. The demand for accommodations has been such this summer that the proprietor of Lake View has deter mined to build, the coming winter, a large addition to his house A small steamer will be put on the route from Port Clinton to Put-in-Bay, via Ca tawba Island. Thus passengers on any of the steamers to Put-in-Bay can reach Catawba Island by an easy transfer. Peaches are selling now for $2 per bushel, and the prospect for a fine crop continues good. Grapes have rotted badly in some localities. Ap ples and pears will be plentiful. Next month, with our ripe pears and peaches, eariy grapes, tons of fresh fish, and delightful weather, we shall offer to the health and pleasure seeker unusual attractions. For those seeking he-J:! , no place offers m'-re advantages. The proof of this is seen in the bright eyes and rosy cheeks that invariably take the places of the pale faces of the invalids who try it here. Yours, &c, CATAWBA. [Correspondence of the News. WASHINGTON LETTER. WASHINGTON, D. C. July 31, 1880. There is a string infl u-nee be ing brought to bear on the Republi can managers to send some of their most distinguished speakers into the Southern States, with a view of making a thorough canvasi in that section. I believe that if suh ac tion is taken it will arouse in South ern Republicans an amount of cour age and enthusi-isai never before known, and doubtless have the ef fect of drawing into the party many of the whites who are grooving sick of Democratic methols ari l Deoio jratic rale. If snch men as Senators Blaine, Hoar, Conkling and Winlom, Gen. Hawley, and scores of others who might be named, would go into the South, show the pjople there of what sort of matarial the R ipahii can party of the North consists, and g;ive to the party in the South tho weight and responsibility of their en lorsement, they might strengthen the hands of Gen. Longstreet and the few gallant Republicans such as he in that section so as to enable them to build up an organization that would be nseful and effective. Northern men generally have no ade quate idea of what Southern loy .1 men have suffered by their firm de votion to principle, and it is time they should receive substantial sup port and encouragement, such as would be given them by sending there some of our ablest sp3ik ;rs. Old Waahingtonians kno'-v, and they know it from long observation of Congressional -affairs, that eich year 's experience in the Sen-ite adds to the efficiency of its members. The course of business in thai body is so unlike that in the House, th it often the talents which sway the lat ter body are powerless in the other, and it is eqi illy true thit some of the most influential Senators, Mr. Windom, for example, or Mr. Antho ny, would make but little mark ia the House. Maine has been spec ially fortunate in placing Mr. Ham lin in a position where he has been and can be of great benefit to the country, to his State, and to his par ty, and aa long as he will consent to remain there she should continue to re elect him. The South was fully aware of the advantage to be derived from con tinuing men of known ability in the public service, and it is the secret of her ancient supremacy. Senator Hamlin has had long experience in public life, and his character for hon esty and integrity haa never been questioned. It will be to the disad vantage of his State and the nation, if Sir. Hamlin ia withdrawn from the Senate. At the grand Democratic ratifica tion meeting in New York city Wednesday night, two things were conspicuous, the lack of enthusiasm, and the absence of Tammany. The effort to arouse the Germans was a flat failure, in fact, more of a failure than the late lamented attempt to stampede the Soldier vote to Han cock. Mr. Tilden presided. Speak er Randall mule a tariff speech : and Gen. Th.0111.i3 Ewing, of Ohio, cave his views noon finance, and J.
