A Letter from Sonator Gordon, of
Georgia, to Governor Colqultt>.
Senator Gordon, of Georgia, has
addressed a letter to Governor
Colquitt. of that Stato, on the pres
ent situation, which hiaIs beeni ap
proved by all the Democrutic Sen 4
tor'S.0 andRpresenta6tives, an~d whichl
he opens by saying
I do not Wonder at your anxious
mnquiry us to the prospuets of Mr.
Tiden's ilat(ugratioll. I believe
him to haevo been fairly elected.
Such is the volvictiol), I think, of
Aie country, of all DeI ca , and
of a large body of Republicans who
suppoued lovoinor Hiay.s. Joty
any unprejtudiced, mnau can doubt it
or how his inauguration call bo de
feted with aIiy sho)w1 of cml) p) i;alce
with law seems to mo beyond c.mi
pr)ehension, and to plaiii peoplo the
assumliption of the olice of Chief
E;ecutive agatinst the constitution
ally-expressed will of the poople
would scom anll act of simple man1 pa
tion, and to mark another stage in
the history of inl expkniring republic.
Of course it is idle, in advanceO of
the report of the joint commllitteo of
thie two 1houses appointed for the
purpose, to speculate as to the plain
to be adopted for countiig the
Electoral votes, but it is safo to saty
that no pln which fitids support iu
the letter or spirit of the constitu
tion, in the declared opinion of its
framers, or in the practice or pre
cedents of the government, or that
will stand the test of time, can be
adoptod to count in Governor
Hayes. I repeat, that of all the
plns for colling in that gentle
1m11Im whicii the 1Republican press is
suggesting, and which take different
lues with each succeeding day, ts
the p-rty exigency or the public
pulse seems to demand, not one of
them has tihe least warrant of law or
sanction of comimandiug prcedenta
11uon any one colstrucLion of the
constitution, except that Which
would confer upon the Vice-Presi
dont ill the powors whieh Congress
possesses to count or reject tie vote
of States-nd that is no construc
tion at ill The result of the count
ing miust be tihe eiection of Mr.
Tiiden. If, for instUnce, tile prima
facio progannme, which was tile Rc
plblican plan ufntil thd action of
Governor Grover, of Oregon, is to
ho adopted, Mr. Tildeni h1as 185
votes and is elected, If, on the
contrary, Congress is to go behind
the ceri icaites and count the votes
as given by the popl of the St it< s
Mr. Tilden hats 196, without South
Car'olina, 1nd of course is elected.
If tile twenty-second joint rule -is to
be readopted, allowing either house
to object to the count n.; of a S at.
of course the Holns. of ltepreosenta
tives will object to counting Louisi,
an1, Florida and possibly South
Cairolina for Governor ives. It
cannot be supposed that the House
will ever consent to have these
States counted as ma~niplamted b
returning beards who haIveJ usurpedl
po wers not conferred by the laws of
thuose States, and( exin essly (denied.
by the courts in two of them. The
result 0on that plan wou(I be to
leave Mr. IHayes wvith only 106 votes
and therefore not elected. If thec
bill of Senator Morton, now before
the Senate, on the motion of Senia
tor' Edlmunds; should be passod( re
'qluiiing alhl thle votes to be counted
from States which have sent up but
on10 set of cortihjeatos, or thei 0on0
coun1lted upon which both houses
agreed where there are two returns,
theni also wvould tihe resmult be Mr.
Tilden's election. Again, if that
clause of tihe constitution wich roe
quires for the election of a President
a majority of all tile Electors ap
> ointed be construed to meani a
*naijority of thle Elctors legally
chosen andi tile votes of one0 or
more States should be r'ejected, it
wouldl leave 184, a majority, and
Mr. Tildien is elected ; or if the
other construction be given to, that
clause, viz., that it requires 183
- votes to elect, that is a majority of
*all tile Electors appointed, whether
counted or not, then, although
there would lbe no election by tme
people, in case any State wore re
jected, yet t: House would elect,
and wvould elect Mr, Tilden. But
supposo the joint committee should
fail to agree and tile clounlting be
left wherle time constitution leaves
it-to thle twvo houses. In that case
the vote of no State to which objection
was made could bo lawfully counted,
because, as counting is an affirma
tive act to be performed by both
houses, it canniot be done b~y one.
What is the business of both jointly
cannot be. performed by one sepa
Srately. In each State, thlbrofore,
when there are more than one set
of returns, neither could be counted
if objection were made. A count by
one, where it is clearly made the
dutty of two, is no count at all.
Senator Gordon then goes on to
say that the constitution requires
the two houses jointly to count and
a ntly to object. The votes to
~nted, lhe maintains, is what
the two hottees agree on, and not
the vote to be rejected, The thirty..
seven States are entitled to protee.
tion agaittst the' forged and false
uitterannas of thirtenaam Staea.
Bo'ter that at Stato be silenced tem
porarily th:m sho should under corn
pulsioil speCak the iutruth, the pro
ciso r ovorso of the verdict rendored
by a majority of her people. Sena
tor Gordon concludes as follows :
But lot us go furthor. Suppose
the House of Representatives should
athicate and coisent to go through
the more form of counting those re
turnm which in the doubly certified
itLtOS were cIlothed with the forms9
of law. This would be to ignore its
colstitutional power to o.xamino into
the correctnoss of the returns. But
e ;uld Governor Hayoe bo counted
in even upon that pl: ? The Re
publicans could thus Captul, of
cour11,3, 0he1w thr-oo Southeni1 States,4
but(, by thLo saio rule the Democrats
would of necessiity capolre olne vote
from11 Oregon. For, if the Hayos,
Ealcton; in Lonisiain-, for instneo,
arc certified by the Governor of that
Siato, so is one Tilden Elector in
Oregon certified by the Governor of
that State. If it be staid that the
popular vote of Oregon was over
one thousand against the Tilden
Electors, the reply is that the popu
lar vote of Louisiana was more than
eight thousand :lgainst tho 1-rya.
Elo:tors If the Governor of Ore
gon, supported a1s he is- by the de
cisions of the highest courts and a
long array of legal authority,
be said to havo coimitted a blunder
in denying a certificate to a Hayes
Elector, who, though elected, is ineli
gible, cortainly the returning botrd,
sulpported by 110 law. andi. violating
the very law by which it-, was created,
has committed not only a blunder,
but a crime agaiust the peoplo of
Louisiana, the pobplo of the United
,Statoe. and, if allowed to decido the
Presidential election, atainst liberty
itself, by refusing cortificates to the
Tilden E!ectoi s, who were both
chwt(d and eligiblo. So that upon
t' is I lan, also, Mr. Tilden must be
de;Ihjro- I :ected and inauguratLed,
unQlesi we are to witness the remarka
ble spectacle of tho .Iopoentatives
of a great pooplo att'2nmpting to
sottle one of tho most lolmien tous
questions which concor:1 their
welfare and their libe ties by s'<1ne
sti ange procedure, whiieh is to be
a igorolsly elforced When it Hub,
servos the purpose of one( political
p.irty and be uncereioniouily i g
nored where its enforcelent would
opende to the advanlt go of another.
I group thsos dift. rent phases of
the Electoral problem together thlt
you Ill. y clearly see how very dinli
eult it is to defeat Mr. Tilden by
!my method of counting which is
liely to receive the sutpport of ton
partist1ilan Ien in reply to the
qiiestion ats to whether Mr. Tilden
Will be p .ICeably inauguarated, I 1m
almot re:ady, in view of 'the consid
erltions I have given you, to say
yes. It is proper, however, for ie
io apprie to of the belief provail
in"' here, that the m lor daiing la, I.,
Crai of the RepublicanL party are di i
posed to take the risk of inmugurt
in Governor Hayes in spite of Mr.
Ti ten's eloetion, relying upon01 the
:mpp~losed pro.Iisposition of too peo~
pie to mnake no iarmied resistaneco in
:uliy event, and thle belief is 1no
less genleral that, if constantly 8s
atured hoefor'ehand of peiaceable ac
qluiesence, these do051porat en whi ill
ruthlessly proceed to cariry out
their purp~oses, howvever fatal to free
electione and to p)olitical liberty.
Such, I say, is the aplprehension
pre va,ling here. But whlatever may
be the .dcs.gns 21' this class
of Re~publlicansl, I cannot be
lieve thtat a majority of tile Son..
auto wil over ennctionl 50 laloiss a
poimen~ft. I hlave faith thait theO
power of truth and reverence for lawl
will control such a body as5 the Uni
ted Stattes Senate. It is imy socret
that thlere are Riepublicans in bo0th
houses of Congress who wvill never
consent thait thae VicoPresident of
the United States shall oerciso the
extraordinary and datngorouis po wers
which'tile extremists seek to con for
upon haim ; anid I kn~ow of no other
miethaod by which Mr.: Hayes can be0
counted in. Tile very act of .ap
pointing a joint comm~ittoo to rep)ort
a plan would seem to be an abandon
ment of such a Ieo and'ca recog
nition of the constitutional powver of
the two( houses of Congress over tihe
entire subject. I have thus endeav
ored to show you that any probable
plan11 which may be adopted, short of
vesting tihe President pr'o temporo
of the Senate with dictatorial power,
must result inithe legal inauguration
of Mr. Tfilden. Nothing, I think,
can prevent this, unless the ,oxtrem
ists, emboldened by the promise of
p~oputlar non..resistance, should at
tempt. by sophistry. to evade the
logic of facutR and law, and to deny
the constitutional rights of the House
of Rlepresentatives. It will be
seen that the constitution providtsa
for all conltingdncies which ha-'e
arisen and for all likely to arise in
this case, and the autest guarantee of
a peaceful solution of this grave ques.
tion is an unswerving adherence to tihe
law and the precedents, Lot me
conclude witha the remark that the
great mass of the people, Reopubli..
cans and Democrats, are honest and
fair-minided. I1 repose with great
confidence on the power of public
opinion, which is erystalizin'g1 I be,
lieve, in the direction I hate mndicat
ed. .That it may be potent enough
to secure the inautgrraion of M.
Tilden I beliove to he tihe wish of
very largo liajority of the poopl c
and I know of many honest Republi
o:ln4 who love country more thatl
party. I an, very truly, yours,

Haven't they kept us under bayo
inets all the tijo.7 . Niven't they
divided the army aboujt half-.and
hal'f between us and the Injuns t
Let 'em hunt for intimidation nearer
homne. Why, sur', Athere w~as *o
s inds of humble Democrats in Ohio
and Pennsylvania who wanted to
vote for Mr. Tilden, but their bread
and meat depended on not doing it.
How abcuit all tho workmen in the
shops, mills, factorios, that belonged,
t') the Radicals who mado their
bloated fortunes out of the late
w tr? There was no intimidation, of
course, but th boss calls them all
up and says "You' vote as you
please, but if you don't vote for
Iayes (didn't you say that was hif
linme?) you can come to the captain'tj
offieo and settle, alnI get your
NwAlkill papers."
The truth is, Mr. Watterson,
those Radical cowards have been
afraid of us so long that they havo
got intimidation on the brain. Boil
Butler was invited to go to New
Orleans to help couit, but lie didn't
go ; ho replio1 by tolograph
"Grent spoos I Calnt go. I feel
imtimidated." Now the worst case
I have heard of is Jack Allan's. He
had three Iullldred negroes oil his
sugar planitation, and bein' pressed
for labor lio offerod every darkey
who would stay at homo an extra
dolhir' in silver, ind they sta1ved.
The Shine of the coin intimidated
m('1, an1(d so Louisiana iN to be set
down for-did you isay his namne
waa Hayes ?
Now for tho othr sido of the
picture, These Radical rascals
1made the p)oor niggers believe that
if Mr. 'I ilden was elected they
would all be put on tho block and
sold into slavery. They were made
to /n li( ce a lie and put in. 'ear of
lo'dn'their liberty, am that' wasn t
ininidatiol, was it? Why, sur., inl

They have follered these Radicals Ho
long I'm afeerd they would steal
overything I've got, Sir, if there
was somie high and m1iighity arbiter
of those issues who would speak to
us from the cloudn--somo great and
siupreele judge a mottin' on the top
most 11peak of the Itocky mountains a
lookin' dowt, with majestic wisdon
upon this bedoviled and bowildered
land, lie Would throwl out overy Ing
gor vote that such iiimlunidation
carrild to Hayes, which they say is
his 111111. ISur, tile intimnidationt
was all onl tho otler side. Even
the carpot-blggfrls and scalawagn
who roost around us like buzzards
watchin' a sick horse, would havo
voted for Unicle.Sami if they hadn't
been afcored of losin' their oflices.
They wero intimidated, and now
they are lamen11itini' they didn't do
liko Sai Bard, and . floo from -the
wrath to comio beforp it was too
late, and make tbemselves unani,
Sin', I know that all of us, more
or less, are livin' under a measure
of intimidaItion. The fear of the
law, the fear of society, tIO f ar of
the devil, or some other foar, keeps
us all intimidatedl, There are some
11en1 I would lick if I wasn't afeord
they would lick me(-. There's mighty
few mm hiving in a state of perfect
freodomi. Our donoiistie and cojn
mmercial relations give the lio to it
very dlay. You know howv it is
youriself ; but ar'e all the relations
to 1)o busted up on that account ?
No sur-hy no mneans. A r'easonay,
b)l0 qulantity of inltimidlation in a
wholesome thing for beast and
No, let 'em count us cut if they
dare to. I knowv they enni boaft the

w~hien thny want to, T.hieir only
chafnce to get out of his kingdom
whenr ho gets 'om, is,'to fool him on
the count some evening at dress,
But we've got some long heads a
watchin' of 'em-, and they'll be
caught, at their rascality, Joe
Brown and~ Sm Bard havo gone to
Florida, anid Joe is a wvhale. H~e's
siomio on a count hlimself. Ho's
count(d votos hofore, and hain't for

from him I dont know but Joe .
didn't jinlo Gidleon's band for
nlothing, He slipped in and slided
out just as camuy, and nobody know
whlien it was done. Sam Bard
doesn't do thlat way. He tunmbles
in andl tumbles out with a regular
sommorsot, and mkes ns much
noise in doin' it as a sohoolboy
julmpin' into a mill pond, B~ut
Joseph is all right now, and our
fplks are bettin' on him.
One thing is shmor*3 and certain-,
woare not going to have the other
foller to rule over us-and did you
say his name was Hayes I
Yours jubilantly, BuLL An'r.
The Charleston 1Tournal of C2ome
merec says: "It is stated upon good
authority that Todpath, the notorb.
onhloodly~shirjt faunter, was a~
nmember of a gang of bummers that
ontered the mansion of. the Missee
Elliott, in George street, while that
btuilding was under the safeguard of
tihe United States after the war, and
stolo therefrom a F'rench clock,
Tise elook was return~ed by order of
General'-Woodford, then in comman4
of the city, and it is now in the
possession of the own~er, who ca*n
tell the little storg."
