There is a nobility about &.muei I.
TiMen's renunciation of the nomination to
the presidency and ultimate electiou to
that office. seldom evinced by an Ameri
can citizen in public life. Above all con
riderations of emolument or jietty ainbi-i
tion, he lias devoted much of UW life to
the reform of gevernmental abuses which
came under his hand ; elected once to the
highest office in the gift of the American
people, he agreed to a compromise equiv
alent to a renunciation to resene his coun
try from the hnnk of a renewed civil war;
now again the office is offered him, but
bowed with the weight of years and hon
ors and worn with pnysical ills (yet with
a still keen mental power) he feels it his
duty to refuse the great position. IIow
few are tlie men in public life in America
who feelipg the sun ef their existence ap
proaching close to the western horizon
would not prefer to die in the White
House than as a private citizen! How
few would say "a great work is to be per
formed; I have not the physical strength
to perform it tlmugh I could well hold the
]X)sition and enjoy high honor." When
Samuel J. Tilden is laid m his giave the
American nation will have cause to mourn
©ne of the noblest minds the race has ever
TILDEN 1) KLEINES.
Tilden has spoken. After a long si
lence that has given rise to all manner of
conjecture, the political idol of the
American democracy sends forth a letter
laying that his public career is forever
closed; he cannot accept the nomination
tollte presidency of the United States,
though believing that such nomination is
practically equivalent to an election. He
fear» that it is liöw beyond his strength to
enter upon four year» (neaily five, includ
in g the canvass) of unremitting mental
and physical toil in the work—of attend
ing to official routine and of reforming
systems established by over two decade»
of misrule. He well knows the work
that such an administrative policy im
poses, for in overthrowing the Tweed ring
m New York City and in reforming the
itite government of New York he has
had an abundant experience. Four years
ago the same reasons, but in a lesser de
gree of intensity, induced him to decline
the nomination; since then those claims
lia vc become imperative'. lie closes his
letter with tlie following: ''I.ought not
to assume a task which I have not the
physical strength to carry through—to re
form tlie administration of tlie federal
government; to realize my own ideal, and
to fulfill the just expectations of the peo
ple would indeed warrant, as they could
alone compensate, the sacrifice which the
undertaking would involve But, in my
condition of advancing years aixl declin
ing strength, I fed no assurance of my
alxlity to accomplish those objects, I
am therefore constrained to say, definite
ly, fhut I cannot now assume the labors of
an administration or of a canvass. Un
dervaluing in no wise that gift of heaven
the occasion and the power sometimes be
stowed upou a mere individual to com
municate an impulse for good, grateful
beyopd all words to my countrymen who
would assign suqh a Iwneticeut function
to me. I am consoled by the reflection
that neither the democratic party »or the
republic, for whose future that party is
tlie best guarantee, is now or ever ean be
dependent upon any one man for their
successful progress in the path of a noble
destiny. Having given to their welfare
whatever of health and strength I pos
sessed or could borrow from the future,
and having, readied tht fwm of my ca
pacity foe such labors as their welfare
mow demands. 1 but submit to flic will of
God in deeming my public casern forever
