WHAT TilE COUNTRY LOST.
A SK TI( OF T'IIi .1A N W1H0 SILOULD
h A VA' BEEN 1'RESIDEST.
True Attributes of Royalty--The Tri
umphs of Tilden--What he Would
Have Been in the White House.
Correspoledncce FormouV Argus.
He is a little dried up old man ;
ho will weigh perhaps 115 pounds ;
he has a littlo round head, a little
round face with no board thereon ; a
little round nose, but entirely largo
enough for tho face ; a little round
bald spot on the back of his head.
His hair is brown, and has a way of
dropping down over the little round
faco ; his eyes aro blue and rather
soft than otherwise ; the lid of the
loft eye drops at times, caused by a
a nervous affection, but the expres
sion is to give one the impression of
cunning. Ho stoops a little, as little
dried up old mon will do, and his
walk is something of a creep as
though stepping on eggs. He has
no distinguished look ; one would 1
never select him from a crowd as a
man born to command ; oh no, he
looks more like a hard working coun
try shoemaker with his good clothes
on than a king, and yet in some
respects no king, nor emperor, nor
priest, nor other man of any ago, or
country, has been his equal.
He has no friends ; lie never had
blood enough in his veins either to
feel the warmth of friendship or to
inspire it. As the few ounces of
blood which ho is supposed to have
are much too cold to be quickened by
the presence of lovely women, he is
unmarried. He never made a great
speech, ne or wrote a great book, in
short, never did anything to call
out the admiration of mankind. He
is not magnetic ; a wooden Indian
in front of a tobacco shop will cre
ate as much enthusiasm as he.
At the American Institute Fair,
when open, is to be seen a great
number of curious and most admira
ble machines of all kinds, doing all
kinds of work. One may spend days
examining and admiring these various
machines. Away off at one side,
unseen, unnoticed, unthought of, is
the engine that moves them all.
Nobody sees it, nobody thinks of it.
All notice and admire the effect,
none notice nor admire the cause.
This little old man is like that
engine, unseen, unknown, unthought
of, but the cause of great events.
True, for the last few months his
name has been upon every tongue,
but this was but an episode in his
life, and although his power will be
greater than over, his name will no
more be heard. He is an honest
and an exact man ; if he owes a
penny it will be paid, and if a
penny is due him lie wants it. He
was once made a chief magistrate of
a great State, and after election the
evont was celebrated by a supper.
When the bill caime in, lhe dis
covered an error of 38 cents, and
sent it back for correction. This
wvas called meanness by the free and
easy politicians, and added to his
unpopularity, for these political
gentry like only "whole.-souled"
fellows-a wvhole -souled followv be
ing oneo whoorobs the public crib
and scatters a good share of the
plunder among his friends. No,
this little old man wvas not a wholo
souled fellow, and was hated by all
In the year 1874 the Republicans
had entire control of this State.
General Dix had madj wonderfully
popular governor, and as he was a
candidate for rc-election, it was
deemed impossible for the Demo
crats to carry the State. They made
great efforts to induce one of their
popular men like Judge Church to
accept the nomination for governor
in opposition to Dix, but the case
was so hopeless that all declined.
In this emergency for the Demo. I
crats, my little dried up old man
offered himself, and as defeat wvas]
considered certain, lie was accept
ed. Judge of the blank as -
tonishment of the politicians when
they found that he was not merely
elected, but elected by a tremendous
majority. That little old man's
hand was felt in every county and
town and school district in the Stato,
as the result showed, and he became
In this State are many rings, 3
among the worst of which was thie
Canal Ring. The gover-nor was
hardly installed when he began awar
against this gang of robbers. This
but made them laugh, for they
doeenied themselves invincible. Soon,
however, thingn began to asnanme a'
serious aspect for themi and they
sent. the governor a messago- some
thing in this strain, to-wit ::
"DruR GovEiNoiR-,-You know how
strong we are ; you knok that. we
hold the balance- of power in, this
State- between the two parties,. and
can elect whom: we will and defeat
whom we will ; you know that
neither party,. and no governor,, not
oven Dix, strong as he, was,. dared'
touch us. You want to, be- presi
dent, and your know that. this State
holds the balance of power in the
nation ; that whoever gets Now
York will be president ;: now if you
will, let us alone, as, Dix. and provi
ous governors have done,. we will
guarantee this State- to you;. but
should you decline, and make war
upon us, we will cause your political
death, at all hazards.
To this the governor returned
an answer something as follows:
"Sum-You are an organized band
of publie robbers, preying upon the
commercial interests of the State ;
it is my duty to destroy you, and I
will do it or perish in tho attempt.
Yours, TIM GOvERNoR.
That showed the character of the
man. He had but to keep quiet, as
other governors had done, and the
vote of the !ronpire State was
bis ; if he made war upon the thieves.
be was sure to lose it, so far as hu.
mnan eye could see. It also shows
the marvelous power of the man
that he both whipped the ring and.
saved the State. It soo- began to
be seen that the governor would be
a candidato for the presidential
nomination. The rings became
alarmed I Big rings, little rings,
canal rings, Tweed rings, city rings,
whiskey rings, tobacco rings, rail
road rings, all, all exerted them
selves to the utmost of their capaci
ty to defeat the nomination of the
governor at St. Louis, for they too
well know that his election to the
presidenoy would be their death
knell. In addition to the rings and
thieves of all kinds, a large part of
the leading men of his party were
earnestly opposed toim. This
arose from two causes ; they knew
that if elected he alone would be
president, and would require no
kitchen cabinet ; that the power be
bind the throne would be abolished.
They had also been offended by his
coldness, and disliked him.
No candidate before a convention
over had a stronger opposition per
baps, but what was the result ? He
swept thorn all aside by a wave of
the hand and was nominated almost
without a contest. And he was
elected, too ! Elected by thapeople;
elected by the electors.
It is all over now, and the govern
Dr's name will be heard no more
forvever. He will never be other
than a privato citizen, and there is
no possible object in praising or
blaming him. We can sum up his
so now as fairly and with as little
passion as the case of Julius Caesar.
I am not his friend, and in the
amnpaign wvas inactive ; but. now
that all is forevor settled, I may
say that he would have made the
best chief magistrate America ever
had, or is likely ever to have. He
wvas doubtless botter fitted for the
place than any man whose name was
river mentioned for that high posi
tion. Could he have been allowed
to fill the place to which he was
elected, his name would have gone
:lown to future generations as the
grecat presaident. What William of
Drange wvas to England, he would
bave been to America, in the estab.
lishment of good government.
[ndeed, the two were much alike ;
both small, feeble men, both co2ld
md repellant, and unpopular on
that account ; both exact and pains-.
taking ; both possessed of executive
ibility of tho very highest order.
Bamuel Jo~nes Tilden is not simply
in able man, but a marvelous man.
Not simply a king among men, .but
i, king among kings. He has been
.ied about as few men have ; he has
een swindled as no man ever was
nyindled out of the presidency. But
uis loss is small in comparison to
vhat the nation has lost in losing
usa administration. IL. W. S.
The Newborry Herald had an espe
dily level head when it penned the
'ollowing : "The only bad feature
hbout Governor Hampton's success,
mnd the redemption of the State, is
he huge amount of poetic bosh that
uas been inflicted upon the publio.
ivery poetastor who can make a
ingle must celebrate the grand
ivent in rhyme."
