Brick Pomeroy, in the La Crosse
Democrat, of July 6th, previous to the
Democratic nomination, said: "It is
now as we write, as it has been for
months, and will ever be in the future,
a warfare between the slimy, corrupt,
reckless, dishonest, money-using poll
tical tricksters of New York, and the
young Democracy of the great West,
so rapidly becoming the seat of empire,
when we can both reward friends and
punish enemies."
It seems that New York is ahead.
The picture is well drawn and true

and wc hope it will be responded to
in that spirit which insures success. -Richardson
is a Republican county,
and she must give no uncertain sound
inlhe" approaching October election.
Organization and work must be done.
Personal aperations are as nothing.
Local interests must be sacrificed, if
needs be; and alljmust yield -something

Republicans come to the rescue, and
organize for the public good. We
hope soon to learn that Richardson
county is organized from center to
cercumfcrence, and ready for the con

are already in line ; let the others
closely follow, and we have no fear
for Richardson county.
Opposition "Without Principle.
The Democratic party is emphati
cally an opposition party. When the
North is for war then it is a peace
party. When the Nation declares
"Let their be peace," then it is a war
party. When Uncle Sam calls for
"three hundred thousand men"
then it is opposed to the draft, oppos
ed to coercion, opposed to increasing
the army. When the Nation wants
sixty thousand troops to keep the reb
els at bay, then it is for the reduction
of the army. When Congress propos
es to reduce the army from fifty-three
regiments down to thirty, then the
Democratic members vote solid against
reduction. When the nation thinks
it wise to keep the rebel Stdtcs on
probation until they show fruit meet
for repentance, then it is clamorous
for immediate restoration. When
Congress proposed to admit North
Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia,
Florida and Arkansas into the Union
as fully reconstructed, its Democratic
members vote solid against it. When
the Nation i9 for paying the National
debt, in accordance with the spirit
and the letter of the law, it is for re
pudiation. General Grnnt.
Our citizens learned, last Tuesday
morning, that Generals Grant, Sher
man and Sheridan, would be at the
Brownville Depot of the C. B. & St
Joe. R. R:, at 11.30 A. M., and a host
of Republicans and two Democrats em
barked upon CapL. liarret's ferry, and
tvfVp. in a sliorTiime. landed 'li the
.. -j-, , . - , t
"classic shores" of Scott City, Mo.,
whence they were conveyed by omni
bus to the depot, arriving thirty min
utes ahead of time.
After dinner, at the Fisher House,
the crowd ranged itelf around the de
pot, seeking comfort in an atmosphere
ranging from 05 to 105 In the shade,
and from the jokes, tough yarns, and
witicisms passing round, we should
judge, enjoying the situation.
, At last the shout start?, " the cars
are coming;" the whistle shrieks,
and the cars are here. The conductor
informed the crowd the Generals were
in the rear car. The editor of the Ad
vertiser makingextra good time was
the first to gain the " presence," and
thake hands with Generals Grant,
Sherman, Sheridan, Harney and Blair.
By this" time the cars were literally
crammed. The Generals arose and
eiood the hand shaking admirably, ap
parently enjoying the pleasure of the
meeting asvmuch as we. But soon the
whistle calls us off from the pleasant
interview; we leave the cars, which

The Seymour Record. . j
When the Tweedle Hall convention
was held in New York, in January
A. D. 1861, James Buchanan wes
President of the United States, and
Congress was controlled by the Dem
ocratic party. State after State In the
South were holding conventions for
the purpose of withdrawing from the
Union. And the great question of the
hour among rebels and there sympa
thizers was, how shall we render sec
cession a success, and among loyalists
the equally great question arose for
solution how shall this insurrection
be suppressed. A convention Was
called in Washington to effect a com
promise and save the Union. The
Unionists of that convention were
prepared to grant any reasonable re
quest so that the Union might be pre
served. To them entrusted as to what
should be done, the reply of
the. rebel " element which had the
control of the entire South, was, give
Us a piece of paper, pen and ink and
tell us to write our own terms and it
shall be nothing short of eternal and
entire separation. The Union must
and shall be desolved. Now what
project does that truly loyal man Gov
ernor Seymour offer for the settlement
of our difficulties, at the Tweedle Hall
convention in January, 1861. In hi3
speech there he saj-s: "Let us also
Bee if successful coercion by the North
is less revolutionary than successful
secession by the South. Shall we pre
vent revolution by being foremost in
overthrowing the principle of our gov
ernment and all that makes it valua
ble to our people and distinguishes it
among the nations of the earth?"
Up to this time nothing had been
thought of except to maintain the
Union by force of arms if they must,
by peaceful means if they could. All
peaceful means had been tried and
failed, and the loyal heart was turn
ing to the last resort, but to be told by
Governor Seymour that "successful
coercion was as revolutionary on the
part of the North as successful seces
sion on the part of the South." That
to coerce the South the North would
be "foremost in overthrowing the
principle of our government and all
that makes it valuable to our people
and distinguishes it among the nations
of the earth." Then what does the
Governor suggest as a remedy for our
political Ills? Two months later he
says to Judge Charles H. Rugglesthat
"the best thing for the North to do is
to seek admission into the Southern
Confederacy under the Montgomery
In September, 1802, Mr. Lincoln is
sues his proclamation of Emancipa
tion, after which we have Seymour de
claringthat "if the Union could not be
restored except by emancipation, then
it ought not to be restored." During
the entire period of the war, in his
speeches and messages, we find more
of criticism of the government and its
policy of punishing rebels of the
North and South than ought else, and
never a word of commendation.
Seymour's Loyalty needs Con
We arise from the psrusal of an able
matured article in the Omaha Herald
wherein the editor of that paper la
bors to prove that Gov. Seymour is,
and has been, a truly loyal man
When "Gen. Lee and his noble army'
invaded Pennsylvania in 1S63, Secre
tary Stanton telegraphed the Govern
or of New York for troops to repel the
invaders. The Governor replies "
will order the New York and Brook
Ivn troops to Philadelphia at once.'
It is a fact that the Governor, as did
the Governors of other States, sent
troops as desired immediately. For
this the President and Secretary were
very thankful and so informed Gov
ernor Seymour through his assistant
Now, this is the sum and substance of
the proof aduccd in favor of the Gov
ernors loyalty. To our mind there
are several questions arising for which
the Herald may have satisfactory an
swers. Why did not the President
ami his war Secretary send their
thanks to the Governor of Ohio, Indi
ana, Rhode Island and Massachusetts,
for they likewise sent troops ? Why
is it necessary to labor so hard to prove
Governor Seymour's loyalty? Why,
if it is necessary, is there so little
proof of the fact? Why does not
somebody trT to prove Gen. Grant's
loyalty ?
Does this labored effort on the part
of the Democratic press to bring them
selves and their standard bearer with'
in the spirit and terms of loyalty in
dicate a great undercurrent of Union
ism on the part of the great mass of
voters, or is it a mere subterfug
mere trickery on the part of the Her
ald and its coadjutors to catch a few
votes that they otherwise could not
get. Why was it that Governor bey
inour was regarded as a trusted friend
in the ranks of our enemies and fear
ed as a foe by the loyalist ? Why was
it that the rebels shouted for Seymour
when the news of his election as Gov
ernor of New York reached their
camp, and why was it they felt so
sorrowful two years later at his defeat ?
These questions under all the eircum
stances- Mill suggest themselves to
every. fafrniinded-man, and it may be
well that he have some satisfactory
argument to rest his faith upon before
voting the Seymour-Blair ticket.
The mere fact that such questions do
arise in the minds of the intelligent
voters, taint the ticket as a little un
sound, so it would be well to clear the
matter up at an early day. But in
doing so don't be too zealous in your
work or place too mucn stress on weaK
and isolated facts, else the voter may
presume to the prejudice of your tick
et, that you have no better in reserve
If the record is clear and unanswera
ble, be bold and fearless ; if otherwise,
we suggest great caution.
The St. Joseph (Mo) Union says:
"Last Fall.. Frank P. Blair mssed
down the Mississippi River on a steam
er which lay forsome time at our levee.
A number of our citizens wentaboard
to pav their respects to him. At length
conversation turned upon the relative
merits of Grant and Sherman, when
one of the gentlemen present expressed
it as His opinion that Sherman, was-
much the abler man of the two. To
this remark. Mr. Blair promptly re
plied, "By G dl Grant knows more
than Sherman and all the balance of
them banged into one!"
The Democratic Platform Re
pudiated. Section First, " We demand the Im
mediate restoration of all the states to
their rights in the Union, &c."
Section Sixth of the Democratic
Platform, Bays, "We demand the re
duction of the standing army and
navy. The abolition of the Freed
men's Bureau."
Congress has had a bill before it for
the "immediate" admission of the
Southern States " to their rights in the
Union," and on its final passage, and
on each preliminary vote thereon, the
Democratic members voted solid
against the "restoration," and every
Republican voted for it. President
Johnson, whom they declare, in their
platform, "is entitled" for opposing
Congress, "to the gratitude of the
whole American people, and on behalf
of the Democratic party, we tender
him our thanks for his patriotic efforts
in that regard," vetoed the bill for the
"restoration" of the five States "to
their rights in the Union." And the
Republicans, unaided by a single Dem
ocrat, but opposed by every one, voted
for such " restoration," and the bil
became a law, "the President and the
Democrats to the contrary, notwith
Again : Congress has had a bill be
fore it to reduce the regular army from
fifty-three regiments, its present count
to thirty regiments, all told, and on its
final passage in the-Senate, twenty
eight Republicans voted for the reduc
tion, and none against, and four Dem
ocrats voted against its reduction, and
none for it. Thirty Senators were ab
sent. Thus, in -very important partic
ular, the Democratic Platform has
been repudiated in the " house of its
friends." What shall we say then. Are
the real sentiments of the Democratic

they dare not seek to maintain them

that they seek to do indirectly wha
they know they cannot obtain au

Creditable Records.
In looking over the columns of trash
01 the Brownville smut machine, an
article headed, "Has no Creditable Re
cord," drew inv special attention. JJr,
Holladay, the editor of the smut ma
chine, aforestud, manifests great indig
nation towards Republicans lor inti
mating that Frank Blair has no cred
itable political record. The Doctor
undoubtedly is so indignant because
he, the Doc, on a very small scale, is
just like Blair. Truth is, Blair's poli
tical record is not creditable, no more
than is the record of the sapient editor
of the said smut machine. Blair is a po
litical weather-cock and trickster, and
Is, therefore, unreliable, so is the Doc
tor, as every one acquainted with him
knows. Since the commencement of
the rebellion, the doctor has done the
following things which prove my as
sertion, viz : Published .a rebel paper,
published a Union paper, made JJemo'
cratic speeches, made Union speeches,
has declared himself a Democrat, has
declared himself a Republican, favored
negro suffrage, and opposed negro suf
frage, favored arming negroes to sup
press rebellion, made Republican
speeches, was nominated and elected
by Radicals to the Territorial Council,
and has held ofhee under A. Johnson
Now he betrajrs the friends who gave
him the only honorable positions he
ever had, is again publishing a rebel
paper, and like Blair, the " dorg has
turned to his vomit." The Doctor

should not elate him too much, and it
is hoped he will not get reder in the
face than the common red jacket is
wont to make him. It is no credit to

From the Albany Evening Journal,
published Immediately after the New
York riots, we extract the following,
not doubting but our Democratic
friends may their find the same man
upon the same platform they then en
dorsed. The Journal charges:
1. That on the 4th of July, 1863,
Horatio Seymour instructed the Unit
ed States Government and the lower
orders of the city of New York, that a
mob could proclaim the law of .pub
lic necessity as well as the Govern
ment. 2. The mob did make the proclamat
ion. and enforced it with fiendish acts
of barbarism and bloodshed.
3. Governor Seymour called that
mob together, expressed his sympat hy
with it, said that it should be satisfied,
... . 1 J 1 Al 1
and thai ne wouiu nave ine arart sus
pended and stopped.
4. Governor undertook to readPresi
dent Lincoln a lecture in Constitution
al law, directing his attention to the
"temper of the people." and threat
ened him with other acts of violent
resistance, if he pursued the course
entered upon.
We charge Horatio Seymour, in
that and kindled acts, with having
fmrsued a course of conduct designedly
n aid of the Rebels and to the retard
ing of the Union cause, and allege that
his skirts are crimson ayed with the
blood of many men, North and South
whose lives would have been saved
had he consistently and persistently
refused an manner oi open and secret
countenance and support of the Re
We charge Horatio Seymour, by
the moral support which he gave Re
bellion, and the moral discourage
ment which he uniformly gave the
Union efforts, with having prolonged
the war, as well as contributed much
to its origin, and that thus he was the
cause of the expenditure of mihons o
treasure which otherwise would have
been saved.
We charge that but for the conduct
of Horatio Seymour and Horatio Sey
mour's friends, the war would have
been triumphantly closed long before
It was, to the saving of thousands of
lives and millions of money.
We charge that the Rebel Govern
ment was only able to keep its people
with It the last half ot the war, by
encouraging them to believe that the
Seymours and Vallandinghams of the
rsorth would in the end so revolution
ize popular sentiment, that their de
mands would be granted. And it was
not until the Presidential election of
1S04, that this delusion was dispelled
But if Seymour himself had refused
the South his countenance, this feeling
would not have existed, and the war
would have ceased long before it did.
We therefore hold-that Horatio Sey
mour is jointly accountable with ..the
originators of the Rebellion, for the
fearful result of the war, and his con
uucl in regard to the drait serves as
an illustration of it.

Hon. O. B. -Hewett Dear Sir:
Appreciating, as we do, the value of
your labors in the cause of education
and hoping that you will attend the
coming session of the State Teachers'
Association, let me suggest the pro
priety of bringing before that body the
question of what school books should
be used m our common schools, itou
cannot imagine the needless variety of
books now in our interior schools.
Go with me, for instance, into the
school room, we will observe that the
teacher calls a single scholar to read ;
next two will be called : then, perhaps,
four or more will be called with but
two books in the class, the teacher look
ing over on one of these, or setting on
at a distance, leaving the scholars to
correct each other.
Now, upon examining these classes,
we find them all in the same cla'ss
reader, that is the first reader, second
reader, or third reader, as the case may
be. bv as many different authors as
there are classes ; such as Saunders,
McGunie. Parker, &c. ISow, the rea
son of this, is we have all come from
different parts of the country, where
these several books are used.
The reason why this continues to be
so, certainly is not ior the want oi
means or of disposition to apply the
correcton ; but there are so many vari
eties they know not which to get. A
teacher may cet a set of books for this
school, another set will be required for
the next school.
Now. it does seem to me that the As
sociation ought to pass resolutions of
preference for the best series of school
books, and recommend their adoption
in our public schools, by this means
we should soon have a uniformity.
feuch a resolution would indicate to
book dealers the kind of books to keep
for sale. How many days constitute
a month? Another vexatious subject
which often causes misunderstanding
and may, perhaps, be properly decided
and made uniform throughout the
State by the action of the Association
Twenty-six days constitute a month
m nearly all employments. I hirteen
weeKs constitute one-quarter oi tne
year, which would be seventy-eight
days. Now, some claim, seventy-two
days to constitute a Quarter: others
claim sixty-six days : some claim sixty
nve daj-s, and others, still, claim trrat
sixty days shall constitute a quarter.
Now, if you think these are proper
subjects to come before the institute,
please bring them to notice. I am
sir, our most obedient. &c

Mr. Jefmes, for Commissioner of
Internal Revenue, is being opposed
bitterly by most of the Radical Sena

and he will probably be r jeered.
St. Eouis, July 2j
The new postal law passed bv both
nouses oi uongress yesterday is an
important measure. The provisions
of most interest in the Weat are as
follows : The return of all letters on
which the name of the sender is en
dorsed, if not called for in thirty days;
reduces the lees on money orders
doubles the compensation of postmas
ters for the payment of money orders :
allows weekly newspapers sent to reg
ular subscribers in the county where
published, to be delivered free of pos
tage from the post office nearest the
place of publication; authorizes the
issue of duplicate money orders for
such as have been lost : makes it a
felony to counterfiet money orders :
makes it a felony of high order to use
postage stamps the second time know
ingly ; declares it shall be unlawful to
deposit in the post office any letters or
circulars concerning lotteries or gift
enterprises of any kind, on any pre
text whatever empowers the Post
master General to negotiate and con'
elude an international money order
arrangement : provides that sureties
on bonds of defaulting postmasters
shall not be liable unless the Govern
ment institutes suit within three
years alter the rural settlement of ac
counts ; allows certified copies of post
masters' returns to be used as evidence
in courts of criminal prosecutions.
Baltimore, July
The losses by flood yesterday will
foot up several millions dollars.
The morning of the 24th a light rain
began to fall which changed to almost
a deluge beiore noon, and atternoon
the river began to rise at the rate of
two inches an hour.
At Ellicott City the destruction of
life and property is great. Thirty-
houses were swept away, some con
taining whole families, were carried
with the current and drowned. Sev
eral bodies have been recovered to-day
at or near the Keiay House, about
eight miles below.
Several days must elapse before an
accurate estimate of the loss can be
made. The loss of life in Balto City
a I m .
is not positively Known.
The President has signed the fol
owing bill which is of great impor
tance to National Banks :
Be it enacted, &c. : That for the
sole purpose of reducing and retiring
the remainder of the compound inter
est notes outstanding, the Secretary
of the Treasury is authorized and di
rected to issue an additional amount
of temporary loan certificates, not ex
ceeding $2-50,000,000; said certificates
to bear interest at the rate or three
per cent, per annum, princ'pal and in
terest payable in lawful money on de
mand; and to be similar in all respects
to certificates authorized by an act
entitled "An act to provide ways and
means for the payment of the com
pound interest notes," approved
March 2nd, 1867; and said certificates
may constitute and be held' in any
National Uank owing or holding the
.a i
same as part oi a reserve in accord
ance with the provisions of the above
mentioned act of March 2d, 1867.

ed to-nightj reaches 37; number mis
sing and drowned in Baltimore 6.

SENATE Sundav evening 3ession
Sherman presented the credentials
of Williard Warner, Senator elect from
Alabama, for terjn ending March,
1871. Mr. Warner came forward and
was sworn in.
Mr. Nelson, of Virginia, was sworn
in as a member of the House, nve mm
utes before the adjournment.
The Senate, while in executive scs
sion, confirmed a large number of im
nortant nominations, among Which
were the following :
W. S. Rosecrans. Minister to Mex
Im? T T,. Dicker. Assistant Attorney
-General; C. P. Haywood, Collector of
Tntprnal ?.flwniifl. Third District of
Missouri. '
General Blair's letter of acceptance
excites little comment. The Commer
cial Advertiser says : Frank Blair is a
dangerous man, and he continues to
write and speak as he has done, he
will soon have ample rope to hang
himself." The Post savs: "It will do
more harm to the Democratic candi
dates than Blair's former letter which
spcnred his nomination. Itusesthe
term 'peace' in the same sense that it
was nspd bv the Copperheads during
thf war. find leaves little doubt of
Blair's action if once in power."
The Baltimore Commercial, of Fri
dav evening last, gives credit to i
Democratic orator, General Thomas
F. Bowie, for thus addressing his fel
low mrtisans :
If there be any class of men I would
sooner tax, it would be men
who furnished the means to carry on
