For President of tne Dnitel States,
- P. X . . J-
GEN. JAMES A. GARFIELD,
The Republican party In National Conven
tion assembled, at the end ot twenty year
ince the Federal Government was lirst sub
mitted to their cluircre, submits to the neople
of the U. S. tins In i, f report of its adminis
tration. It siipres.e,l a rebellion which had
".niied nearly a million of men lo subvert the
National atflhority. It reconstructed tne
Union of the States with freedom instead of
slavery ns its corner-sione. It transformed
four million human beings from the likeness
of things to the rank of citizens. It relieved
Congress from the infamous work of hunting
fugitive slaves, and charged it to see thnt
slavery does not exist. It has raised the val
ue of our paper currency froin 3J per cent to
the par of gold. It has restored upon a solid
basis pay meut in coin for all thcnational obli
gations, and has given us a currency abso
lutely good and equal in every part of our ex
tended country. It has lifted the credit of
the nation from the point where 6 per cent
bom la sold at 8:i to that where 4 percent bonds
aro eagerly sought at a premium. Under its
administration rdlways iiave increased from
3l,O)0 miles in 1-00 to more than 82,Ouo miles in
170. Our foreien trade has increased from
$700,01)0,00;) to fl.ljO.ooo.OOO in the same time,
and our exports, winch were $20,1-00.000 less
than our imports in ISjIO, were $2.4,000,l'oo
more than our imports in ls79. Without
resorting to loans. it lias, since the warclosed,
de frayed the ordinary expenses of Govern,
ment" besides the aci-ruing interest on the
public debt, and disbursed annually over
30,000,000 for pensions. It has paid 8Si,0CiO,Ou0
of the public debt, and by refnnding the bal.
lance at lower rates has reduced the annual
interest cliai-sre from nearly l.il.OOO.ooO to less
than .y.oon.OO. All the industries of tho
country have revived, lalior is in demand,
wages "have increased, and throughout the en
tire country there is evidence of a coining
prosperity greater than we have ever enjoy,
ed. Upon this record the Republican party
asks for thecontinucd ronlldeneeand support
of the people, and this convention submits
for their approval the following statement of
the iii ini i iles and purposes which will con
tinue 10 guide and inspire its efforts.
1. We affirm that the work of the last ttcen
to.one years has been such as to commend it
f.olt to'th, favor f the nation, and that the
fruits of the costly victories which we have
achieved through immense difliculties should
be preserved; that the peace regained should
be. cherished ; that the dissevered union now
happily restored should be perpetuated, and
that the liberties secured to this generation
should be transmitted undiminished to future
generations; that the order established and
the credit acquired should never be impaired ;
that the pensions promised should be paid;
that the debt so much reduced should be ex
tinguished by the full payment of every dol
lar thereof; that the reviving industries
should be further promoted, and that tho
commerce already so great should be steadily
. The Constitution of the U5. Is a supreme
law and not a mere contract; out of confed
erate slates it made a sovereign nation; some
powers are denied to the nation while otherd
are denied to Stales, but the boundary be
tween the powers delegated and those re
served is to be determined by the National
and not the State tribunals.
X The work of popular education la one
left 10 tiie care of tin; several s-tates, but it is
the duly of the National Government lo aid
that win k lo the extent of its constitutional

the a gregate of the intelligence in the sev
eral Stales; nnd thedestiny of the nation must

but by the average genius ot all.
4. The constitution wisely forbids Congress
to make any law respecting an establishment

tion can lie protected against the influenresof
sectarianism while each' stale is exposed to

During tiie evening rumors became,
riore exciting, and it was .aid that the
Americans had ' been deie tted, and
were retreating towards 1'hiladclphia.
Late that night Captain Bellach and
Colonel Tilton arrived at Elizabeth
"I heard the rumors, mother," said
Captain Bellach.. "1, don't believe "cm;
but even if there was a lile of Britiak
at the door here, I would be too tired
to run away from them."
Pretty Nancy Hanson spoke up.
But, Billy, they would not only send
thee and thy friend to the hulks if they
caught thee, but they might be rude to
lis women were they to Iind thee here."
"Yes, sister-in-law, if I thought
there was any danger. 1 would leave
instantly; but the British, even if they
have lHaten us, will be too tired to
come here to-night."
"1 agree with my friend Will, Mis
tress Xaucy," said Colonel Tilton.
"Moreover, our horses are too tired to
take us farther to-night."
About two o'clock- in the morning
the silence of tho deserted streets of
"the town was broken by a rattling and
jingling' of steel, the heavy, measured
tiviul of feet, and sharp commands given
in a low voice.
Nancy Hanson awoke at the noise,
and jumping out of bed, ran to the
window and looked out into the moon
lit street beneath. A lile of red-coated
soldiers were moving by toward ihe
old Bull's Head tavern. The cold moon
light glistened 011 their gun-barrels
and bayonets as they inarched. Nancy
ran to lier mother's room and pounded
vigorously 011 the door.
"Mother! mother! waken up!" she
cried; "The British are come to town,
sure enouo h !"
. The family were soon gathered
around t lie dull ligiit of a candle, the
gent leincu hastily awakened to have
their hair en ijiicik; the la. ties in short
gowns and petticoats; Elizalicth Han
son wore a great starched 'nightvap
perched high upon her head.
"You were right, sister-in-law," said
Captain Bellach, "ami I was wrong.
The best thing we can do now is to
march out ami take our chances."- .
"So say J," assented the colonel.
"It's well enough for thee, Billy, to
talk of marching out and taking thy
chances," said Nancy; "thee has thy
black citizen's dress; but Colonel Til
ton is in uniform."
"True ; 1 forgot."
"It does not matter," said the col
onel. "Yes, but it does," cried Nancy.
"Stay now until morning, and 1 think
I can get thee citizen's clothes. I have
a project, too, to get thee. oil. For

"Gentlemen," said Nancy, as they sat
or stood around drinking their hot cof

"What is the matter with the inva

"He appeareth to have the dropsy,"'
answered Nancy, gmvcly.
In about half an hour tin old-fashioned
coach, as large as a small dwelling-house,
and raised high from the
ground on great wheels, lumbered up
to the door. The slops were let down,
or unfolded, until they made a kind of
step-ladder, by which the passenger
ascended to the coach which loomed
above. The door stuck, iu consequence
of being swelled by the late rains, and
was with difficulty opened. The offi
cers stood around, waiting the appear
ance of the invalid, and the young
Irishman who had been Nancy'a escort
waited at the door to help her in, for
she was to accompany her alllicted rel
ative to the ferry.
The house door opened, and she ap
peared, bearing a pillow and blanket
to make the sick man comfortable.
She arranged these, and stepped back
into the house to see him moved. Then,
with a shuffiing of feet, the pretended

Meanwhile the fugitives had arrived
at the bank of the river, where they
found that ' the ferryman was at tha
other side, and his boat with him.
He was lying on the. stern seat, in the
sun, aud an empty whisky bottle be
side him sufficiently denoted the rea
son of his inertia. When the colonel
called to him, he answered in endear
ing terms, but moved not; and when
the officer swore, the ferryman reprov
ed him solemnly. Affairs wero look
ing gloomy, when Captain Bellach,
who had been running up and down
the embankment that kept the river
from overflowing the marsh lands that
lay between it and the hill on which
the town stood, gave a shout which
called the colonel and Nancy to him.
They found that he had discovered an
old scow half hidden among the reeds ;
it was stuck fast in the mud, and it
was only by great exertions that the
two gentlemen pushed it oil" the ooze
into the water. The colonel then took
Nancy in his arms, and carried her
across the muddy shore to the boat,
where he deposited her; then, pushing
oil' tire scow, he leaped aboard himself.
"Lackaday for my new silk petticoat,
all spotted and ruined V cried Nancy.
"I'd rather have been taken prisoner at
once!"' And slic looked down ruefully
upon the specks of blue mar-h inud
that had been splashed upon that gar
ment. Neither of the men answered. The
boat leaked very badly when it was
fairly out in the water, and the colonel
was f Jived to bail it out with his hat.
The captain sat in the middle of tha
boat, 'pad lling it with a pic e of board.
His hat had blown oir, and his black
silk m ill-clothes were covered with
mud. The tide was running strongly,
nnd, as. the boat drifted down th
stream, it was swung round and round
in spite of the captain's ifforts to keep
it straight, while the leak gained on
them, until Nancy, with a sigh, was
compelled to Like her best beaver hat,

They were scarcely more than half
across when Major Fortcsciic and his
quad of soldiers dashed up to the
bank. They ran along the embank
ment, keeping pace with the boat as it
drifted with the tide.
"Halt!" cried the officer; but no one
in the boat answered. "Halt, or I
shoot!" But Captain Bellach only
paddled the harder. "Make ready!
"Down for your life!" cried Colonel
Tilton, sharply, dragging Nancy down
into the bottom of the boat, where
Captain Bellach flung himself beside
them. It wits the work of a moment.
The next instant "Fire!" they heard
