FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 28. 1877 THE VOICE OF REPUBLICAN NEW YORK. Marshalled by the clearest-minded, ablest and most eloquent of her sons, (Roscoe Conk ling). New York has given voice to her views upon the political situation of the country as presented in and through the attitude of the Chief Executive. It is evident that the Rad ical Republicans of the Empire Stvte have the courage of their opinions. They follow the lead of a most worthy, high-minded and courageous champion. Having been recom mended to the Permanent Chairmanship of the Convention, Senator Conkling declined that honor, giving as a reason his desire to le upon the floor and participate in any de bates that might arise. He moved that the temporary Chairman, Congressman Piatt, be retained in the Chair. His motion prevailed by a vote of 311 ayes to 110 noes. This was a most marked, gratifying and decisive tri umph. The Platform adopted begins as fol lows: " Republicans of New York, true to the achievements of history and faithful to the demands of an uncompleted mission, make the following declarations: Thq office of government is to conserve order, peace and safety and to protect every citizen in the en joyment of every right implied by the con stitution and laws. Unity and fraternal re lations in all states and sections and between all states and sections is of the first and high est importance. The Kepublican party or New York will heartily support every measure authorized by law adapted to establishing and maintainfng commercial and industrial pros perity and tranquility, and justice and obedi ence to lawful authority. The constitution ordains that the United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a republican fbrm of government. The only republican government known to the constitution of any American state is a government chosen by the people. The question whether a case has arisen requiring the President to employ military forces to protect state authority against domestic violence is, by the constitu tion, committed to his decision and to his re sponsibility. Taking no issue with a decision of this kind which has been made by the na tional executive in respect to the employ ment of troops, and expressing no opinion re garding the methods and attendant proceed ings employed in any instance, we cherish hopes that the action taken in relation to the Southern states will result in peace, tranquil ity and justice, and no act of the Republicans of New York conducive to its good effect shall be witheld. We insist on purity and effi ciencv in every branch or public service, na tional and state, and to that end we hold first , that no needless office or officer or agent should exist; second, compensation for offi cial service should be fair and just, but in no case excessive; third, tit men and no others should hold public trusts; fourth, every offi cial. high or low, should be required at all times to faithfully perform his duty and the whole of it: fifth, no official cr office holder should be subject to political or partisan as sessmentsor interference in any way with his political rights or action, and plain laws should forbid and punish all attempts to make or enforce such assessments, or to control or abridge in any respect absolute freedom political action, which, in this country, be longs to all voters alike. In connection with this subject we turn with satisfaction to that wirHnn of the letter of acceptance of Mr. r-w - - Hayes, wherein he declares the founders o our government meant that the officer should be secure in hi3 tenure as long as his per sonal character remains untarnished and the performance of his duties satisfactory, and in further. of this view, we commend as worthy of considerate legislation, making offi cers secure in a limited fixed tenure, and sub ject to removal only as officers under state laws are removed in this state, on charges to V.a rAoniarlv and onenlv nrenared and ad- X i iudtred. We hold honest service or labor the best and highest exertion for American citi zens; and those who labor for others, whether for the government or for private employers, am a fnllv entitled as anv citizen can be to absolute freedom in all political and civil af fairs. Thev owe the full service they agree to tender their employers, and they owe noth ing more. The constitution of the United States and of the state of New York, and the laws, defend the equal rights of all citizens and all voters, and we deprecate, as unwar rantable and hurtful, all attempts of employ ers, whether representing capital or political power, to encroach upon or coerce others in the eniovment of anv of their rights or the exercise of any duties and citizenship. In the state of New York the whole number of national office holders, including clerks and subordinates of every degree, is 7,467. This is one national official or subordinate to 152 voters of the state. Of county and town offi cials there are in this state 133,513. This is one state, county or town official to every eight and one-half voters. When the politi cal functions of local officers are taken into account their nearness to citizens and their power over their property, taxes and inter ests their relative influence becomes even greater than the numbers indicate and the exclusion of public servante from political ac tion would disfranchise a great body of our iellow citizens. The laws mean no such ex clusion, and we deny as an imputation upon the people of New York that they are or have been dominated by the nation's subor dinate officials, and we can conceive of no condition of affairs short of the extinction of manhood and patriotism in which a postmas ter or clerk could subdue to his partisan will 152 other electors or exert any other influence beyond suchashis character might give him". This is admirable in point of directness and compactness of arguments. It disposes ef fectually of the entire situation and leaves nothing more to be said. It will be observed that these valliant and self-respecting loyal ists of New York constantly speak of those who hold office under, the General Govern ment, not as "Federal" but as National office-holders. The distinction is very signifi cant and should never be lest sight of. Hayes's tyrannical and debasing order is promptly and irresistably denounced. It cannot withstand so searching a criticism. Conkling's resentment of a deliberate attempt to humiliate him and his friends is unmistak able in its courageous spirit and unequivocal tone. What we have quoted is the key-note of a revival of the party's self-respect. It Is for the straight and undeviating Republicans of the country to rebuke their recreant Pres ident. The party is unworthy of the respect of the people if it does not resent and repri mand the heretical course of Mr. Hayes and the deliberate perversions of the Presiden tial office by him and his chosen advisers. Conkling has chivalrously accepted the issue and he is not the man to beat a retreat. WOULD NOT RECOGNIZE HIM. Mr. George William Curtis is the represen tative alumnus of our politics. The alumni of certain universities more notably Har vard have set up a sort of dilettanti opposi tion to all active politicians not of their set. Sumner, when he was the Senate, led this supercillious opposition. He dragged Motley into it and then followed all Harvard. George William Curtis, who is an English university swell, born away from home, has seen fit to pit himself against Conkling. (Conkling is an academy-man and not a col legiate.) Curtis leads the rose water malig n.ints of New York. He got himself elected to the State convention just assembled. As a superservicable friend of his brother alum nus, Hayes, (who is a graduate of the Har vard law school), he sought to interrupt the regular order of proceedings by introducing the following resolutions as a substitute for a part of the platform reported by the commit tee : llfxoh-eii, That the lawful title of Ruther ford B. Hayes to the presidency is as clear and perfect as that of George Washington: that we gladly recognize his eminent patriot ism, proved in the field and in civil life; that we heartily commend his efforts in tho per manent pacification ot the fcoutnern section of the Union, and for the correction of th evils and abuses in the civil service, as strictly conformed to his own pledges and to the declarations of the convention that nominated him and as tending to the promotion of the public wellfare; that, recognizing the work as nut begun, we shall had with satisfaction its prompt and vigorous prosecution, in which the President may confidently rely upon the cordial support of the country. On the question of adopting this resolution the vote stood ayes 109, noes 295. Mr. Hayes was led to the door of the convention and told to depart ! We hail with pleasure the presentation of the inevitable issue. Honorable Alexander H. Stephens in con versation to-day said that he thought Presi dent Hayes had done more for the pacification of the country under home rule than Tilden could have done tved he been inaugurated and thought that the appointment of a South em man to the vacancy of the Supreme Court bench would be a further step toward pacifi cation, naming " ex-Governor Hershel V Johnson of Georgia as the man. Press dis patcher. Certainly, give the rebels the Supreme bench and the Presidency and the undisputed control of the whole Union they tried so viciously to destroy, and there will be no trouble at the South. All they ask for is to be let alone which means to be undisputed in the sovereign power over the entire Repub lie. All they ask to do is to either rule or ruin. The "pacification of the South" was just as easy of accomplishment m 1861 as it is now. All that was needed was to let the rebels have their own way about buijding a Confederacj'. All they have ever asked is limitless power. Hayes understands this and cannot find it in his heart to deny thtfm. By all means let us have a rebel on the Supreme Bench. K. of P. Statistics.

K. of R. & S. , we gather the following m relation to the numerical and financial strength of the N umber of members, 392. I J Past Chancellors, 04. Knights, 317. Nunber of Subordinate lodges, 9.

Lander county will have a new source of revenue this year, ine tteveiiie intorms us that the Central Pacific Railroad Company are assessed ror taxes on 4u,uuu acres tana in that county. This is the first year in which these lands have been subject to taxation, as hitherto the company did not possess title to them by United states patent. These 40,000 acres are now patented to the company and are consequently assessable tor taxes. A HARD CASE. The Eureka Sentinel of Wednesday relates a pathetic story as follows: When the Sawtelle troupe got ready to leave for Austin yesterday morning it was discovered that a member of the troupe was non est, the young Miss who figured in the bills as Miss Vivia France having secreted herself with the evident in tention of abandoning the theatrical career. Mr. Sawtelle who claimed the child as his daughter, immediately instituted a vigorous search for the lost one, and after the lapse of a couple of hours found Vivia at a residence on Spring street, where she had gone with out the knowledge of the lady of the house, and esconsed herself in the wardrobe, in the hope of evading her parent. The lady, upon finding her in her place of concealment, ad vised her to return to her father, but the poor child begged to be allowed to stay. During the conversation Sawtelle knocked at the door, and on being admitted approached the child and deliberately knocked her down, and as she fell to the floor he kicked her half a dozen times with his heavy boots. The roor srirl bessed for mercy, but the brute had no such quality in his composition. She struggle to her feet only again to be felled to the floor, Sawtelle in the meantime, exercis ing his vituperative powers to the full bent, and threatening his shrinking victim that he would put it out of her power to run away in the future, as he would break every bone in her body. Unfortunately there were no men in th neighborhood to interfere, and the j fond father, after tiring himself out in ad ministering the whipping, dragged her to the coach, which was waiting at the door of the Turner House, and putting her aboard, jumped on himself and rapidly drove out of town. When it is remembered that the girl is a slight, delicate child, only 12 years of age the reader can draw his own conclusion as to the brutality of the whole affair, and as a testimony to his cruelty, the blood staining the door frame, is a silent but very effectual witness. Vivia in giving the reasons for her attempted runaway, told a most pitful story. She states that she does not know who her mother is and has no recollection of her, but supposes that she is dead. Sawtelle claims her as his child, but judging by his treatment, every spark of fatherly love seems to have forsaken him. She has been brought up in ignorance, being barely able to read, and has been whipped upon the slightest pro vocation, such as not being perfect in her lines, etc., and her persecution by her father had rendered her life unbearable. The poor child in her misery knew not what step to take, but having become acquainted with the daughter of the lady in whose house she took refuge, she entreated her companion to con ceal her, in the vain hope that she would be left behind by her guardians and protectors. The assault yesterday morning was witnessed by a number of ladies, and the main incidents related to us by the lookers on. 1IE.
