Letter to F. P. Clair, Jr., from
lion. Isaac flu Morris.
To Hon. Frances P. BlSr :
Sir: A few days after the nomina
tions v.Terc made by the convention
which assembled in New York on the
4th instant, I had a conversation In
Washington City with General dish
ing, of Massachusetts, in which that
eminent jurist and politician said :
"The simple question to determine
at the election is, shall General Grant
or Frank Blair be President for the
next four years, for if Seymour is
elected he will not live a year.
The announcement, I confess, star
tled me. I knew General Cushing's
intimate knowledge of Governor Sey
mour, and that he never indulged in
an idle remark. I . had also heard it
freauentlv stated that the Governor
had declined the acceptance of publicTfor your ambition, it has o'lcnped it
places in consequence of failing health,
but I had not s upposed there was any
cause for serious apprehensions in re
gard to his physical or mental condi
tion. Recently developed facts, hpw
ever, and the sober deliberate opinions
of those who know him intimately,
render it not only possible but proba
ble, that in the event of his and your
election, the responsibility of admin
istering the government would soon
devolve upon you.
It -therefore becomes a question of
the gravest moment to look back into
your record, and ascertain "what
manner of man you are," and what
security peace and good government
would have in you. I propose to per
form this duty from time to time, at
mv leisure moments.
The first inquiry which naturally
arises is : Why was the nomination of
the New York convention conferred
upon you ? Why were all the Demo
crats of the West passed by that you
might be selected ? Not certainly be
cause of your Democracy. If you
ever were a Democrat, you were the
worst acting one I ever saw. But you
never were a Democrat, and have
spent your whole life in abusing the
Democratic party. You do not now
claim to be a Democrat only an op
ponent of the " Radicals," the reasons
for which will appear in the sequel.
You were not made a candidate be
cause of your services during the war,
though some of your partisans have
the foolish audacity to claim for you
that those services were more import
ant to the country than Grant's ! And
Thomas Ewing, of Kansas, was unan
imously presented by the soldiers and
sailors who had assembled in New
York, to the Belmont convention, as
their choice for Vice President. Not
only was their request refused, but
they were turned away with cold in
diflerence. They did not look forward
to you.as their candidate in any pos
sible contingency. Neither your war
record, your talents, or your private
virtues had attracted their attention or
captivated their admiration. Aside
from a few followers in Missouri, no
body had ever thought of you in con
nection with any great office. In a
moment, in the twinkling of an eye,
as it were, you bounded forward to
consequence, and to use the language
of Junius in one of his letters to the
Duke of Grafton: "From whatever
origin your influences in this country
arises, it is a phenomenon in the his
tory of human virtue and understand
ing. Good men can hardly believe
the fact; wise men are unable to ac
count for it; religious men find exer
cise for their faith, and make it the
last effort of their piety not to repine
One who read your letter of accep
tance, hardly knows which to be
startled at most, the boldness of your
assurance or the indecency of your
language. Striking out on the direct
line of revolution, yet assuming to
yourself great purity of purpose and a
lofty patriotism, you have betrayed
your design by the care you have
taken to conceal it. To obscure your
own atrocious object you assail Gen.
Grant as inviting the people to a
feastof despotism and death," when
you are inviting them to a new feast
f of blood. Even despotism would be
preferable to that anarchy you would
turn loose among them to pile up the
dead on the door-sills of the North for
the benefit of the Prestons and the
Hamptons and the Forrests, into
whose service you have entered, and
who brought you forward as a candi
date, while their garments are still red
with the precious blood of our mar
tyred soldiers who fell in defense of
their country's nag, which these trai
tors were endeavoring to strike down,
and the Union with it. It is enough
to appal the stoutest heart to look upon
this scene of national debasement and
shame. Verily there is but one sten
between this people and another civil
conflict. I he most noted rebels are
already dictating the national candi
dates, and you embraced each other
with all the cordiality of old political
friends, professeedly entertaining the
same views ana purposes or govern
ment. How would the British states
men, how would the statesmen of any
country on earth, except our own, arj-
pear in an assemmy wim irauars, con
federating with them to seize the
government, on tneir otnt account
and for their joint benefit?
One of the most remarkable features
of your letter la its total want of mod
eety. Hear! hear!
be distorted by the sophistries of our
adversaries. They all resolve them
selves into the old and ever recurring
struggle of a few men to absorb the
political power of the nation. This
effort, under every conceivable name
and disguise, has always characterized
the . opponents of the Democratic
Thus you adrm that the issue upon
which the present contest turns i3 the
old and ever recurring one of a few
men to absorb the political power of
the nation; and you add, "this effort
under every conceivable name and
disguise, has always characterised the
opponents of the Democratic party."
To transpose your language it means
tills : that the Democratic party has
always opposed the wicked schemes
of a few men to absorb the political
rower of the nation. How long vou
nave been in finding this out ! The
lateness of the discovery is either dis
creditable to your intelligence or your
honesty. You can hang on whatever
horn of the duena you ? n.
If the opponents of the Democratic
party have always been wrong, as you
now allege, and the Democratic party
has always been right, why have yoy
always acted on the wrong side? Why
has your whole life been spent in de
nouncing the Democratic party?
Why did you and the "Blair family"
enter into the Van Buren movement
of 1848, and assist in defeating Gen
Cass, the regular nominee of that
party ? Why did yourin your speech
at Lafayette, Indiana, in 18G0, de
nounce the Democrats as the "most
miserable party that ever had existed,"
and Douglas as the "most pernicious
demagogue in the United States?"
Why did you do the same thing in
this city, and in every other place
where you spoke? WThy did you re
commend "Helper's Impending
Crisis." a work which was generally
condemned in the North, and which
spread terror and consternation in the
South? Why were you so long and
apparently so earnestly engaged in
overthrowing the slave power of the
country and liberating the negro.?
If what you now say of Lis barbarism
is true, your efforts heretofore is his
behalf are frauds and lies. . Your pur
pose, General, i3 too plain to deceive
any one. You desire to re-establish
the slave power of the country, and to
lay the North at its feet. If this can
be done peaceably, which you say you
do not believe, well. If it requires a
revolution to affect it, you say let the
revolution come. When it does come,
you will be the Robspierre of it. Alas,
I. N. Morris.
Quincy, 111., July 27th, 18G8.
The Richmond Examiner, s;
of "the courage required by the can
vass," assails the apologetic tone in
whichthe leading organs of the party
and its prominent members in Cong
ress discuss the issues raised by the
New York Convention. "Already' says
the Examine "we are not without
indications that eome of the recognized
leaders of the party are terrified at the
sound of their own bugle blast." Re-
lernng more particularly to speeches
in the Senate it remarks: "If this is
the mode in which the platform is to
be vindicated and detended, it would
be better to hold another Convention
and call it in. Better strike a flag than
defend it in such fashion. And if tim
is the kind of battte which the Dem
ocratic champions are to lead, thejr
might as well abandon the field, for
they are whipped already. The South
at least, mean something when they
protest against negro supremacy re
construction as intolerable, and as
eternal war and not peace."
The Rochester Democrat, says:
"Horatio Seymour, a few minutes be
fore he was nominated as the Demo
cratic candidate for the Presidency,
declared that he could not and would
not accept the nomination, if tendered
him. lie has accepted it. He said
that he 'could not accept the nomina
tion without placing himself and the
Democratic party in a false position.'
He has done so. He said his honor
was pledged not to receive the nomi
nation, and upon a question of honor
he must stand upon his own convic
tions against the world.' He has
accepted the nomination by that con
vention, lie has accepted it. He
said that if he became the Democratic
candidate for Presidency, he 'should
feel a dishonored man.' He accepts
the situation. Horatio Seymour
stands before the people of the United
States, to day, by his "own repeated
confession, a pledge-breaker and dis
honored man.' "
A recipe for purifying a room is thus
given : Set a pitcher of water in a
room, and in a few hours it will have
absorbed ail the respired gas in the
room, the air of which will have be
come purer, but the water utterly fil
thy. The colder the water is the
greater capacity to contain these gases.
At ordinary temperatures a pail of
water will contain a pint of carbonic
acid gas, and several pints of ammo
nia. The capacity is nearly doubled
by reducing the water to a temperature
of ice. Hence, water kept in the room
awhile is always unfit for use. For
the same reason, the water from a
pump should always be pumped out
in the morning, before any of it is
used. Impure water is more inj urious
than impure air.
" Hdn." Robert Toombs, who once
proposed to call the roll of his slaves
under the shadow of Bunker Hill
monument, and "Hon." Howell Cobb,
who declared that the filthy, starva
tion rations at Andersonville were
"good enough for the Yankee inva
ders," have addressed a meeting at
Atlanta, Ga,, in which they denounce
the reconstruction acts as "revolution
ary and unconstitutional." The opin
ion of such zealous patriots and admi
rers of the constitution deserve to be
m i m
The Chicago Post says with much
force : The last act of the rebels
before the war, was to vote for the
Democrat ticket. The first act of the
rebels, after the war, was to vote for
the Democratic ticket. As there was
but one step from Democracy into re
bellion, there was but one step from
rebellion back into Democracy.
Princess Charolotte has passed into
a stage of violent madness, her fixed
idea being that she is kept a prisoner
by her family, and that she must es
cape and go to her husband at Mira
tion. The Internal Revenue receipts have
improved with the fiscal year, and
have reached as high as a million dol
lars per. day. Yesterday they exceed
ed a million and a half dollars. -.-'.
"Our soldiers run' well this year,"
was the sneering remarks made i by
Seymour after a , series of reverses in
Gov. .IcyEaour Flaotejraplietl.
A correspondent of the Hartford
lA'cmng Post, writing from Utica, N.
Y., the home of Horatio Seymour.
gi ves his impressions of that gentle
man in a very long letter, from which
vve extract the following :
' They call Seymour up here indif
ferently " Oration Seymour," " Rash
Seymour," "Rachel Seymour," and
"Old Jelly Fish." The Seymour city
residence is a lead-colored brick house.
hwith wide, doubled-chimneyed gables.
iiere, when he wishes to catch a new
fish, or spring a coup d'etat upon any
body," Seymour acts the part of the
intriguing host by giving a dinner.
Attacking a man's belly, he forks him
in the conscience after awhile, and the
assassination is complete. When a
blacker conspiracy is to be broached,
the conspirators hie -to Deerfleid, or
hide themselves in Bragg's Hotel.
The liquor, interest, railroad ring, the
cnnal people, are all represented.
They make the slate and tap the rosy,
and the Democratic masses of the
t"? never 'say "Nay." A clammy
Ai L.iO -t l.j 1.1. U L.ii. ;; V i Ill's
Democratic party, he has raised never
his eyes from the contemplation of
his own fortunes. Love, children,
society, women, have no joys to him.
His education began and ceased when
they put a "slate" into his hand. His
deportment, street manners, courtesy,
or whatever it may be called, is no
implanted amiability, but only a part
of his political restraint, conned like a
lesson to take him to the head of the
class. His nature is too feeble to
make him eminent even in insincerity.
Strong men go and carry the flag of
conservatism, nd make enemies by
their. earnestness, but Mr. Seymour
only waits. In all this time of action
he is at Deerfield writing a speech,
full of sweetened like warmness, and
when his bold associates have stum
bled, disagreed, or served his destiny,
behold 1 from his ambush our placid,
philosophic statesman comes to gather
the sheaves of other men. His con
victions are nil; his power of decision
is nihil. His speeches are notable for
Iago-like tact to awaken discontent
and promote public infidelity, while
they suggest no relief, for the plain
reason that Mr. Seymour has no
opinion whatever. He is a timid
lawyer, who gave up the profession
because he had neither nimble nor
profound qualities to give him abid
ing place among his competitors, nor
moral courage to give nerve for the
fair conflicts of wit and education.
He quitted the bar a3 a sick man quits
a jarring chamber, not from any deii
cacy of organization, but from sheer
want of pluck and conscious inapti
tude. He is intensely selfish, very
stealthy, earnest for power, reckless of
fame. He worked like a beaver for his
nomination, as everybody in ntiea
knows, and he declined it before it was
offered to him. As a President, he
will narrow and belittle the destiny
of the country, truckle to the chanti
cleer vanity of the rebel chivalry,
make our Northern character con
temptible again, monumentalize the
rebellion, and carry us into the last
ditch of dishonor. He will be bully
ragged by his advisors, give Bill
Tweed and Pete Sweeney all the In
dian contracts, and make the mighty
recollection of the conquering armies
mightier by the impotence and servil
ity of his succession.
Those who have an idea that Sey
mour is immensely popular in New
York, and can carry that State when
no other democrat would have the
ghost of a chance, will do well to con
sider the following facts :
"In 18.50 Seymour was defeated for
Governor, and received 3H,3o2 votes;
Church, on the same ticket for Lieu
tenant Governor, received 318,009
votes ;, Church over Seymour, 3,657.
" In 1852 Seymour was elected Gov
ernor,, and received 264,121 ; Church,
elected on the same ticket, received
266,147; Church over Seymour, 2,026.
"In 1854 Seymour commanded but
156,495 out of nearly 300,000 democratic
vote in the State, and his popularity,
great as it was on account of his veto
ing the Main liquor law, could not se
cure his re-election, and he was de
feated by Clark, the fusion candidate,
by a few votes.
" In 1862 Seymour was elected Gov
ernor by a vote of 300,049 ; Jones, on

The testimonial, ordered by our Go

It is in the form of a symbolical mon

a purple velvet block two and a half

rises a massive gold plinth, resting on
the centre of which is an upright me

On the obverse disk is the following in
scription, beautifully cut :

of his beneficial promotion of univer
On theJ-ight hand of the medallion
likeness, rises a female statue repre

bough, on the left are two nude fig

The white child points proudy to the
medallion face, while the black point

too was to be benefitted. Behind
this group rises a three-trunked Pal

a collection of the symbols of educa

Many persons have diarrhea as a con

its falling on the liver, to end in a " bil

more serious form of disease.
A gentleman had a cold in the head

Uvhose presence it will not tolerate.
But there are three other things which
may be done to very great advantage,
because they would expedite the cure.
1. Keep the body very comfortably
warm by all available means, espe

2. Take a good deal of exercise in
the open air, to the extent of keeping
up a very slight perspiration lor sev

A flTew Mulch for the Grape.
I find leached ashes and cut (green)
grass the best mulch I can use. The
ashes gather moisture, and repel heat
(by their color). Grapevines that
were mulched at the commencement
of the drouth are doing finely. The
moisture extends not only to the sur
face, but into the grass (mulch). This
has been moist since it has been ap
plied, some three weeks. It is partly
rotten, so that the ground derives nu
triment from it. A shower now would
aid this effectually. Thus the mulch
is both protective and enriching, and
the nutriment of a Kind that is wanteu,
the vegetable or carbonaceous. A
good mulch in the summer, and a coat
in the fail of this Kind, is ail a want on

It is time yet to benefit vines by the

Death of General iialplne.
The sudden death of General C. G.
Halpine (Miles O'Reilly) will occasion
sincere and profound grief In every
part of the land. A gallant soldier, an
accomplished gentleman, a man of
warm and genial nature, he had made
hosts of friends by personal inter
course; but ho was far. more widely
known by his writings, under thencwi
de plume of " Private Miles O'Reilly,"
and as editor of the New York Citizen,
Some of his poems will be remembered
and quoted as long as the memory of
the war lingers. General Ilalpine was
elected City Register of NeW York by
the Democrats, and was a man of large
influence among them. The Citizen
was a Democratic paper, but was edi
ted with good sense and moderation,
and gave no sympathy to the disloyal
element which controls that party.
We printed lately its sharp comments
upon the ticket and platform set up b;

General Howard Is a soldier and a

by the Hon. B. M. lioyer, of Pennsyl

the cost of the Freedmen's Bureau for
one vear at $11,684,450. he felt con
strained to rebuke the lie. Not only
had he made no such statement, but
the total disbursement of that bureau,
up to the first day of this year,
were less than six millions of dollars ;
and the entire expense, includingmed-
ical and commissary stores, and the pay
of army officers detailed to serve in the
field, fall considerably below ten mil

The Young: Convert.
Considerable surprise is manifested
by the old wheel-horses of Democracy,
that General Blair should go as far in
advance of Seymour in firing the Dem
ocratic heart. In Missouri, the Demo
crats who denounced him, hurled stale
hen-fruit nt him, and threatened to
tar and feather him, as he made eman
cipation speeches here in 1853 and '59,
fairly opeu their antique visuals with
amazement to hear the old gospel of
peace fall, in all its pristine purity,
from Frank's lips.
'Tis true that Blair now excels ye
all, O men of the faith once fought for
by the saints ; but it is your duty to
stop gaping with verdant wonder, and
diligently strive to grow in grace. St.
Paul, theyoung convert, was ten times
more zealous, and fifty times more tol
erant than the gentle John, like all
young converts, shoots far ahead of
the old saints. St. Joe Herald.
