Friends of the latter contend for the free <

these extremes there is unquestionably a
'arge number of candid and patriotic citi- i
zers
1 do not refer to those facta so decisive
of the perpetuity of the merit syatem with
vain conceit, that if they were otherwise or
the prospect was discouraging, my remain

but 1 wish to leave no doubt of my absolute

not tor the interference by Congressmen
und politicians with constitutional func
