Tilden's Record.
It is right and proper for the voters
this country to inquire into the record of
all who ask their suffrage and aopire to
great authority.
Xo one haa right to complain of the
strictest scrutiny in this regard, and if
candidates are found remiss or lacking,
they must not expect to gain public confi
dence. Hayes nd Wheeler have a long
public record, and roust stand or fall by
th it So also must Tilden and Hendricks.
The difference now between tha two sets
ot candidates seems to be that, while the
for joer are singularly free from all suspic
ion, the latter are weak on all sides.
The short record of Tilden. service in
the New York Legislature is one of ex
traordinary remissness in duty. Although
it was at time when the principles cf
reform were just introduced into the New
York Stato and municipal governments,
and the call for reform was loud and
earnest from all classes of people except
the most corrupt, Mr. Tilden allowed the
whole term to slip by without apparently
any effort in the aid of reformation. In
fact, he was absent from his post of duty
more than three-fourths of the time, With
out any plea of sickness, he failed to an
swer to his name at the roll call 1,461 times
out of 1,508. Such inexcusable remissness
in duty is rarely equalled. Although his
membership of the Judiciary Committee
might account for a small proportion of
his absence, yet there were more than
eleven hundred inexcusable failures to
respond to his name, and many of them
when measures of vital interest to the State
and the interests of reform were pending.
What would be said of the President
who had taken a solemn oath to ' faitfully
discharge " all his duty and then showed
such indifference or cowardly dodging?
The nomination of Ex-Gov. Cox, for Con
gress by the Republicans of the Lucas dis
trict, is announced. It is deemed a popu
lar and strong nomination.
Sir. Sam Tilden remaikxl, through a re
porter, to an eager country, soon after his
nomination, that he proposed to make this
an aggressive campaign. Thus far, it has
been peculiarly aggressive, but not on Til
den's side.
The Democracy will scarcely have the
hardihood to deny, or attempt to palliate or
slough over the Hamburg massacre. The
only course for them is to adopt the course
of their southern friends and allies, to ad'
mit and defend the wholesale murder.
The tone of the correspondence and com
mentary of the Southern press on the testi
mony in the case of the Hamburg murder
ers is that it would be monstrous to try a
high-toned Southern gentleman, like M. C.
Butler, on "nigger testimony," or any way,
for killing "niggers."
A Celestial scvant in San Francisco,
having been asked to give his opinion of
the capacity of women to serve as domestics,
responded: " Women no make good cook;
no lanry work; talkee to much, all time
dam noise." John, as in the case of Poor
Lo, catches the vices of civilization among
his first attainments. His opinion may be
better than his choice of words.
Stanley, the African explorer, has discov
ered in the heart of Africa, "a people of
European complexion." He says they are
a handsome race, and some of the women
singularly beautiful. Hair brown and kin
ky, features regular, lips thin, noses well
shaped. They live at the base of one of the
largest mountains on the continent, where
they claim their tribe has resided for centu
ries. The man that was chairman of the Na
tional Democratic Committee for eight
years, with headquarters in New York city
and committee rooms in Tammany Hall,
and this covering the reign of Boss Tweed,
may be just the man for a Reform Presi
dent, but we incline to the belief -that the
honest voters of the nation' will keep him
at arm s length when the choice is made.
Tilden should reform Tammany before he
aspires to reform the Nation.

didate for Vice President, while U. S. Sen
ator, took an active part in pushing through
suspicious claim on the Government for

Now tkat the Democratic Congress
approaching a temporary dissolution, it
evident that there has been no higher pur
pose nor other intention from the outset
than to prepare material for the pending
Presidential campaign, in which the Dem.
ocratic party is leading its last forlorn hope
for the possession of the General Govern
ment. In this work of preparation, we
venture to say that the present Democratic
Congress has practiced more deceptions and
resorted to more disreputable tricks than
any pobtieal body ever organized, during
the same length of time. It started out
with the pledge to reform the tariff legisla
tion of the nation, to improve and defi
nitely settle the financial complications.
and to expose the abuses of Gen. Grant's
Administration. Of these professions, two
of them relative to the tariff and finances
have not been so much as attempted
the other degenerated into a mere partisan
effort to manufacture scandals against
many of the men in public life who. are re
garded as especially dangerous to the ambi
uon of the Democratic party.
From the Cleveland Herald.
The Cincinnati Enquirer of Friday
morryng takes considerable space to ex
plain, how it is possible for it to support
Tilden, after having violently opposed his
nomination. But in all its explanations
find nothing to explain away the argu
ment ol this paragraph from the Enquirer
touching Tilden:

say of the Hamburg massacre: "No im

Governor. Stone is the commander in
Mississippi, and when troops are needed in
this State he or the. Legislature will call
for them. Until such call is made the
troops commanded by Colonel Brooke are
trespassers, and Governor Stone will be
justified in ordering him to attend to hit

to do something let him send Colonel
Brooke to the Indian Territory. His pres

not be tolerated.

SPIRIT OF THE LATE MISSISSIPPI CAMPAIGN
Aberdeen Examiner, July 26, 1876.

were contending for liberation from the
basest thraldom ever endured by a civilized
race, and who would have been justified in
swinging their oppressors as food for the
buzzards to the bough of our forest tree.

A SUGGESTIVE "MARGIN"—INTIMIDATION MADE
EASY.
On the 8th of July last the United
States grand jury, sitting at Oxford, Miss.,
made its report, stating, among other
things, that " the fraud, intimidation, and
violence perpetrated at the last election is
without parallel in the annals of history,"
but also pointing out some of the defects
in the national election law, and their
failure to find indictments in consequence.

EASY. The Ability and Points of Hayes.
The Journal-and Messenger, an able and
widely-read religious paper, published at
Cincinnati, speaking of the nomination of
Governor Hayes, renders him in a few lines
one of the finest compliments we have yet
seen. The Journal says:
It is not, to be sure, the business of a re
ligious journal to seek to influence public
opinion for this candidate or that one for
mere partisan ends. But in our public men
we all have a common interest, and every
man, especially every voter, should inform
himself as far as possible of the fitness of
men he helps to elevate to places of public
trust and authority.
Ohio has reason to be proud of the Dnb-
lic men she has given to the State and the
nation. J n this, what state has done more ?
And now that one of the two great political
parties calls for the chief executive of our
state as their candidate tor the chief magis
tracy of the nation, what are the prominent
elements of character that covern this
choice ? The mass of the people are beoom
ing more and more impressed that a reform
is needed in our civil administration not
in profession, for both parties are full of
promises, but in the elevation of honest,
faithful men to office. This feeling ruled
in the Cincinnati Convention. Old-time
politicians, party tricksters, wire-workers
and ring-masters were all laid aside, and
fortunately a man could be found and was
Iound that met the popular demand.
It has been the good fortune and the
privilege of the writer of this, to become
quite well acquainted with the Governor
and his family, lie is all his most san

Or will it be the Republican soreheads.

.These classes now constitute the leading
forces of the Democratic party.
In the case of the Terre Haute ft Alton
Road, the following is the opinion of Til-
den's land-grab, as given by Mr. Garrison,
President of the road at the time Tilden
was called in: ": "
In 1859 I picked up this road the Terre
Haute, Alton & St. Louis Railroad a waif.
Its men had not been paid for five months.
For protection against executions its fuel
was pain for as it was delivered upon the
engines.' I carried it along for six months,,
and indorsed for it personally in all, includ
ing renewals, to the amount of more than
500,000. I gave it all my time and all my
abilities, and after four vears 1 delivered it
up worth $6,000,000. Five thousand dol
lars a year, without any commissions for in
dorsing, was all I was paid all I demand
ed ; but, if there is any such merit in ser
vice as is asserted, and it Mr. Tilden or the
Purchasing Committee were entitled to
steal f 200,000 or $300,000 of bonds, then I
claim it was my honest right to have stolen
the railroad itself.
It would seem strange if the announce
ment of the death of Speaker Kerr should
be. almost contemporaneous with the ad
journment of the Congress over which he
was elected to preside. His ambition was
far beyond his strength, and his bad health
has permitted him to be of little service to
Congress or his party. Had he been in full
vigor, it is probable that the Confederates
in the House would have been saved from
some of their exhibitions of deplorable
party ism and inordinate greed for power,
which have been encouraged under the
temporary Chairmanship of the doughface
Cox and the indolent Sayler. When Con
gress meets next winter, and the Demo
crats will have one more opportunity to
wrangle over the election of a Speaker be
fore they relapse into their accustomed
minority.
