cord with my views, and I stand upon
them in the contest upon which we are
now entering; and I shall strive to carry
theta oat in fhtnre wherever I may he
placed, in political or private life. I
then stated I would send you' these
words of acceptance in a letter, ah is the
customary form.
I see io reason, upon reflection, to
ehange or qualitir the terms- bf 1y ap
proval of the resolutions of the' iven
tion. I have delayed the mere formal
aet of communicating to you in writing
what I thus publicly said, for the pur
pose of seeing what light the action of
Congress would throw upon the interests
of the country. Its acts, since the ad
journment of the convention, show an
alarm lest a change of political power
will give to the people what they ought
to have-a clear statement of wbht has
been done with the money drawn from
them during the: past eight years.
Thoughtful men feel that there have
been wrongs in the financial manage
ment which have bien kept from the
public knowledge. The congressional
party has not only allied itself with mil
itary power, which is to be brought to
bear directly upon the elections in many
States, but holds itself in perpetual
session with the avowed purpose of
making snch laws as it shall see ft.
In view of the elections which will
take place within a few weeks, It did,
therefore,.not adjourn, but took a recess
to meet again if its partisan interests
shall demand its reassembling. Never
before in the history of our country has
Congress thus taken a menacing atti
tude towards its electors. Under its in
fluenee some of the States organized by
its agents are proposing to deprive the
people of the right to vote for presiden
tial electors, and the first bold steps
have been taken to destroy the rights of
suffrage.
It is not strange, therefore, that
thoughtful men see in such action the
proof that there are, with those who
shape the policy of the Republican par
ty, motives stronger and deeper than
the mere wish to bold political power;
that there is adread of some exposure
which drives them on to acts so desper
ate and so impolitic.
Many of the ablest leaders and jour
nals of the Republican party have open
ly deplored the violence of Congression
al action and its tendency to keep up
disoord in our country. The great in
terests of our Union demand peace, or.
der, and a return to those international
pursuits without which we cannot main
tain the faith or honor of our govern
meqt. The minds of business men are
perplexed by uncertainties; the hours of
toil of our laborers are lengthened by
the cost of living, made by the direct
and indifferent exactions of government;
our people are harrassed by thefrequent
demandusof the tax gatherer.
Without distinction of party there is
a strong feeling in favor of that line of
action which shall restore order and con
fdence, and shall lift off the burdens
which now binder and vex the industry
of the country. Yet, at this moment,
those in power have thrown into the
Senate ehamber and Congressional hall,
a new element of diseord and violence.
Men have been admitted as represents
tives of the Bouthern States, with the
declaration apon their lips, that they
cannot live in the States they claiehdm to

These men are to make th

Events in COogres since the adjourn- I

ap- creased the Importance of a political a

ur- al asfdrs. : a
Sof Many Republicans have heretofore l
eta clang to their party who have regretted a
ad- the extremes' of violence to which it has I
an run. They have cherished a ihith that e
rer while the action of their political friends a
bht has been mistaken, their motives have t
yes been good. They must now see that t
om the Republiean party is in that condi- s
irs. tion that it cannot carry out a peaceful r
bye policy. Whatever its motives may be, I
e-t is a misfortune, not only to the coun- a
the try, but to itself; for Its action is un- a
sal checked by any term of opposition.
all- It has been the misfortune of the Re- t
to publican party that the events of the
my past few years have given it so much s
sal power that It has been able to shackle I
of the executive, to trammel the judiciary, I
and carry out the views of the most an
rill wise and violent of its members. Whenil
id, this state of things exists in any party, i
5am It has ever been found that thejpdgment f
sty of its ablest leaders do not control. ti
rer There is hardly an able man who has p
ass helped to build up the Republican organ
tt. iization, who has not, within the past t1
in- three years, warned it against its ex- 0
by eases-who has not been borne down, a
he and forced to give up his convictions of I
en. what the interests of the country call t,
cps for; or, if too litriotIo to do this, who b
of has not been driven from the party. uI
If this has been the case heretofore, e
mat what will beaits action with this new in
the fusion of men who, without a depent re
ho spect for the views of those who have
ar- Just given them their positions, begin
an their legislative career with calls for
er; arms, and demand that the States shall P
are be regarded as in a condition of civil v
er- war, and a declaration that they are
ready and anxious to degrade the presi- d
ar- dent of the United States whenever they G
en- can persuade our free Congress to bring a
)n- forward new articles of impeachmentl 0
up The Republican party, as well as we, n
in- are interested in nutting some check to ti
or. this violence. It mustbe clear to every q
mal thinking man that a distribution of po. g
in- litical power tends to eheek the violence '
rn. of party action, and to assure the peace
ire and good order of the country, the elee- a
of tion of a Democratic executive, and a s
by majority of Democratic members in the I
act House of Representatives, wohld not
at; give to that party organization power r
mt to make sudden or violent changes, but
would serve to cheek these extreme 0
is measures which have been deplored by 4
of the best men of both organizations.
Wn. The result would most certainly lead
is to that peacethl redtoration of the Union
ry and re-establishmentof federal relation
nt, ship which the country desires. 1 am
he sure the best men of the Republican t
ll, party deplore, as deeply as I do, the
e. spirit of violence shown by those recentu
ta 1y admitted to seats Ia Oongress from
he tbe Bothern 8tates. The condition of
ey civil war which they contemplate must

hat which deetlve my judgment when I say

-l the excitement which attended the pro
gress and close of the civil war.
icy As tbeenergy of the Democratic spar
oof ty springs from their devotion to their
on cause and to their candidaths, I may
he- with propriety speak of the fhct that
ad never, fn the political bistory of our
ad. country, ban the action of any like body
ri- been hailed with.such universal and real
In.u enthusiasm as that which lias- been
cal shown in relation to the position of the
to National Demooratio Convention. With
ar this the candidates had nothing to do.
n- Had any others of those named been
selected, this spirit would have been
re perhaps more marked. The seal and 1
sod energy of the onservative masses spring
as tfrom a desire to make a change of pol
at cy, and from a thought that they can I
da carry out their purposes. In this faith i
ye they are strengthened by the co-opera
at tion of the gireat body of those who I
di. served in the Union army and navy di
fl ring the war. Having given nearly I
e, 16,000 commissionsl to the officers of that
in- army, I know their views and their

They demand the Union for which I
-e they fought.
