July 29 , 1830.
GENTLEMEN : I have the honor to
acknowlerge tbe receipt of your letter
of the 13sh of July , I860 , apprising
me formtlly of my nomintion tthe
office of president of the United S.atea
bv the national democratic convention
la'ely assembled in Cincinnati. I
accept the nomination with crateful
appr. elation of the confidence reposed
in mo. The principles enunciated
by the convention are those I have
cherished in the past , and shall en
deavor to maintain in the future. The
13th , 14th and 10th amendments to
the constitution of tha iTnited States ,
embodying the results of the wr for
the Union , are inviolable. If called
to the preaidencv I should deem it my
duty to resist with all my power any
attempt tc impair or evade the full
force and effect of the constitution ,
which in every article , section and
amendment ia the supreme law of the
land ; the constitution forma the basis
of the government cf tho-United
States. Tbe powers granted by it to
the legislative , executive and judicial
departments define and limit the au
thority of tbo general government.
Powers not delegated to the United
Statesby the constitution , nor prohib
ited by it to the states , belong to the
sta tes respectively or to the people.
Tne general and sta e governments
each in its . wi'lioul
acting .1w - o
trenching upon th lawful jaricdiction
of the other , constitutes the Unior.
Tim Union , conipmug a general
government with general powets , and
state governments with state powers
for purposes local to the ttitea , is n
polity , the foundation of which was
laid in the profo.mdeat wisdom. This
is the Union our fathers made , and
which has been BO respected abroad
and so beneficent at homo. Tried by
blocd and fire it stands to-day a model
form of fr < je , popular government , a
political system which rightly admin
istered has been , and will continue to
be , the admivation of the world. May
we not say nearly In the words of
Washington , "The unity of govern
ment which constitutes us one people
Is justly dear to us ; ilt is the main
pillar in the ed fice of our real inde
pendence , the support of our peace ,
safety and prosperity , and of that lib
erty wo ao highly prize and intend at
every hazard to preserve. " But no
form of government , however care
fully devised , no principle , however
sound , will protect the rights of the
people , unless administration is faith
ful and efficient.
It is a vital principle in our system
that neither fraud nor force must be
allowed to subvert the rights of the
people. "When fraud , violence or in
competence controls , the noblest con
stitutions and viaest laws are useless.
The bayonet is not a lit instrument
for collectingtho votes of freemen.
It is o nly by a full vote , free ballot
and f air count that the people can
rule ; in fact , as required by the theory
of our government , take this founda-
tie n away and the whole structure
ff Jls. Public office is a trust , not a
bounty bestowed upon the holder.
No incompetent or dishonest persons
thould ever bo intrusted with it , or ,
f appointed , they should be promptly
elected. The basis of a substantial ,
) ractical civil service reform must first
je established by the people in filling
he elective offices ; if they fix a high
tandard of qualifications for office
ind sternly reject the corrupt and in
competent , the result will be decisive
'n governing the action of the ser
vants whom they entrust with the ap
pointing power. The war for the Un-
on was successfully closed more than
ifteen years aao ; fall classes of our
people must entire alike in the bles-
gs of the Union and are equilly
concerned in its perpetu.ty , and the
proper administration of pub.io affairs ;
ire ara in a state of profound peace ,
henceforth , lot it be our purposeto
culrivate sentiments of friendship and
not of animosity among our fellow-
ntizens. Our material interests , var
ied and progressive , demand our con
stant and united efforts ,
and scrupulous care of tbe public cred
it , together with a wise and esonoml
cal management of our governmental
expenditures , should be maintained
in order that labor may be lightly bur
dened and that all persons may ba
protected in their rights to the fruits
of their own industry.
The timehas come to en joy the sub
stantul benefit of reconciliation. We
are one people , we have common in-
mony and generous rivalry amoirg our
own citzens which will revive our
languishing merchant marine ; extend
our commerce with foreign nations ;
assist our merchants , manufacturers
and producers to develop our vast nat
ural reiources and increase the pros
perity and happiness of our people. If
elected I shall act with fidelity accord
ing to my convictions and shall take
care to pfotect and defend the Union
and to sea that th ? 1 be f nlly auJ"
equally executed . ; all r arts of the
couLtry alike. I will assume the re-
sponsioility fully seasiole of the fact
that to administer rightly the func
tions of the government is to discharge -
charge the most sacred duty that can
devolve upon an American citizen.
I am , very reepsetfully yours ,

INDIANAPOLIS , Ind. , July31 , la.
m. The following is the letter of ac
ceptance of Wm. H. English , as the
nominee for vice president by the
GENTLEMEN : I have now the honor
to reply to your letter of the 13th
inst. , informing me that was unani
mous nominated for the office of vice
president of the United States by the
late democratic convention , which as
sembled at Cincinnati , as forethad-
owed by the few remarks made by me
at the time of the delivery of your
letter. I have now to say that I ac
cept the high trust , with a realizing
sense of its responsibility and am pro
foundly grateful for the honor con
ferred. I accept the nomination upon
the platform of principles adopted by
the convention , which I cordially ap
prove , and I accept it quite as much
because of my faith in the
wisdom and patriotism of ihe
reat statesman and sol-
ter , nominated on the same ticket
for president of the United States.
His eminent service to his country ,
hfa fidelity to the constitution , the
Union and the laws ; his clear percep
tion of the correct principles of government
ornmont as taught by J.ffjrann ; bis
scrupulous care to keep the military
in strict subordination to civil au
thority ; his high regard for civil
liberty , personal rights and the riclits
of property ; his acknowledged ability
in civil as well aa military affairs , and
his pure and blameless life , all point
t > him as a man wor hy of the con
fidence of the people. Not only a
brave soldier , great commander , n
wise statesman and a pure patriot , but
a prudent , painstaking , practical man
of unquestioned honesty , trusted
often with important public duties ,
faithful to every trujt and in the full
mendifn of a rip and vigorous man
hood , ho is , in my judgment , emi
nently fitted for the highest office on
eaitti the presidency of the United
States. Not only is he the right nun for
t'ae place , but the time has cime when
the best interests of the country re
quire that that party , which has
mon"p dized the executive depart
ment of the general government for
the last twenty years , should bo re
tired. Tlie continuance of that party ,
in power for f ur years logger would
not be beneficial to the public , erin
in accordance with the pirit
of our o n republican institutions.
The law of entail has not been fa
vored in our system of government ;
tha perpetuation of property or place
in one family or set of men has never
been encouj ged in this country , and
the great and good men who formed
our republican government lim
ited the terms of office , and in many
ways sh wed their disapproval of loa
leaeo-i of power. Twonly years of con
tinuous power is long enough , and hts
lad to iricgu a itio or corruptions I
which are not likely to be proptrly ux
pnxed under the &une party that psr-
p trated iham. B sides , U should
not be forgotten tha ; Ihe last four
years of power held by that
party were procured by discredit
able means , and held in defiance of
the wishes of n majority of the pee
ple. It was a gritvoujwrong to every
voter , and to our system of self.gov
eminent , which should never be for
gotten or forgiven. Many of the
men now in oilice were put there be
cause of corrupt partisan services in
thus defeating the fairly and legally
expressed will of the majority. And
the hypocrisy of the professions of
that party In favor of civil service re
form , was shown by placing such
men in office and turning the
whole brood of federal office
holders loose to influence the
elections. The money of the people ,
taken out of the public treasury by
these men for services often poorly
performed , or not performed at all , Is
being used in vast sums with the
knowledge and presumed sanction of
the administration to control elec
tions. And oven the members of the
cabinet are strolling about the coun
try making partisan speeches instead
of being in their departments at Wash
ington discharging the public duties
for which they are paid by the people.
But with all their clevemocs and abil
ity a discriminating public will , no
doubt , read between the lines of their
speeches that their paramount hope
and aim ia to keep them or their satel
lites four years longer in office. Per
petuating the power of chronic federal
officeholders four yean lunger will not
benefit the roilil ons of men and wo
menwho hold no office but earn their
daily bresd by honest industry , is
what the same discerning public will
ne doubt Jully unders'and , as they
will also that it ia because of their own
industry andeconomy and God's boun
tiful harvest , that the country is com
paratively prosperous , not because of
them , but in spite of them , this con
test is in fact between the people en
deavoring to regain ihe political power
which rightfully belongs to them , and
to restore tha pure , simple , economi
cal condition of the government of
our fathers on the one side , and a
a hundred thousand federal office
holders and their backers pampered
with place nd power are determined
to retain them at all hazards. Hence
the c nstant assumption of the new
and dangerous powers by the general
government under thp rule of the re
publican party ; the tffirt to build up
what they ca.l a strong government ;
the interference wich homo rule
and wi h the administration of jus
tice in the several states ; the interfer
ence with the elections through the
mtdium of piid partisan federal
ofike holders who are seeking to keep
th ir party in power , caritg more for
that than fairness in the elections. In
fact , the constant encroachments !
which have been made by that party
upon the clearly reserved rights < tf the
people and the states will , if not
checked , subvert the liberties of the
people , and the government of lim *
itedfpoweH , created by the fathers
and in a great consolidated , cen
tral government , strong indted for
evil and the overthrow of republican
institutions. The will of the men who
formed our constitution knew the
evils of a strong government and the
long continuance of political power
in the tame hands. They knew there
was a tendency in this direction in all
governments , and the consequent dan
ger to republican institutions from
that course , and took pains to guard
it. The machinery of a strong cpn
tralised general government can be
used to perpetuate the same set pf
xntn in power from term to term until
it ceases to be a republic or ir such
osl ? in name , and "the tendency of
the party novia po er ic that dij c
tjon , 69 i oVq it } VarfotiB Vyf ( 'bf
aides i the willingness recently mani
fested by alarge number of that party
to elect a president-an unlimited
number of terms , is quite apparent
and must satisfy this kind of people
that the time has come'when it will bo
safest and best for that party to be re
lieved. But , in resisting the encroach
ment of the general government upon
the reserved rights of the people and
the states , I wish to be distioctly un
derstood aa favoring thiTproper exer
cise , by the general government , of
the powers rightfully belonging to
it under the constitution. Encroach
ment upon the constitutional rights
of the general government or inter
ference with the exercisetof Its powers
must be carefully avoided. The union
of states , under the "constitution ,
must be maintained , and it is well
known that this has always been , the
position of both camlid ; t of the
democratic ) presidential 'ic ! et , . It ia
acquiesced in everywhere now , and
finally and forever settled as one of
the results of the war. It is certain ,
beyond all question , that the legiti
mate results of the war for the union
will not bo overthrown or impaired
should the democratic ticket be
elected. In that ev. nt , proper pro
tection will be given in every legiti
mate way to every citizen , native or
adopted , in every section of there-
public , in the enjoyments of the
rights guaranteed by t&e constitution
and its amendments.
A sound cuirency of honest money
of a value and purchasing power cor
responding substantially with the
standard recognized by the commercial
world and consi-t'ng of gold , silver
and paper convertible into coin will be
maintained. The labor and manufac
turing , commercial and business in
terests of ihe country will bo guarded
aad encouraged in every legitimate
way The toiling million of our own
people will be protect , tl feom the de
structive ompi-tition of the Chinese ,
and to that end their imraijjralion to
our shores will ho properly restricted
The p ibhc credit will be scrupulously
maintained and strengthen ed by rigid
econj-uiy in publ c Hxo nditures end
the liberty of the people aad the prop
erty of the peop'e will be protected by
a government of law and crder admin
istered strictly in thfiniojosts of the
ptoplo and not of corporations ot
priv leg'd classes. I do Jiot doubt the
discriminating justice cf the peopln
and their capacity for in'-elligont eelf-
governmen1 , and therefore do not
doubt the success of the demo
cratic ticket. Its success would bury ,
beyond resurrectjon , the sectional
jealousies and'hatreds which have so
lena been the chief stock in trade of
pestiferous demagogues , and in no
other way can this bo to effectually
accomplished. I would restore har
mony and good feel ing bet ween all the
sections and make us , in fact , as well
as in name , one p ° ople. The only ri
valry there would be in the race for
the development of material prosperi
ty , the elevation of labir , the enlarge

of education , morality , religion , liber

Governor William E. Smith and wife
returned yesterday from a tour in Cal

Colorado. In the latter state they
spent three days with General Grant
and party. Governor Smith says : "I
found Grant to be earnest iu his re

of the success of Garfield. All of the
talk about Grant's being sere or luke
warm is false. Ho appreciates Gar-
fijld as being ono of the foremost
statesmen of the country , and waa at
all times unreserved in .expressing his
admiration of him. His convictions
that the business interests of the coun
try demand the election of the
republican ticket were openly
expressed in straight term * , and
there is no more doubt that'General
Grant is in earnest in his fealty to the
party and the ticket than that the sun
shines. We talked about Hancock ,
and Gen , Grant's opinion of him B
just what any man would na urally

was concluded yeiterday. Ohu. A.
Dona , of The New Yurk Sun and
< averal other witno'Ees were examined.
The jury retired and after an hour
rendered a verdict finding that the-
piasengera came to their death by in
juries , the result of a fire which oc
curred on boaid the steamer Set-
wan hak a on the 28h ! of July ; thas
said disaster was cauted by tha burst
ing or collapsing of one of tha tnbfta
in the starboard boiler , whereby
the ilr.mea were driven under the
grate bars into the fore zoom
thereby igniting the woodwork and
causing the destruction of the boat.
The jury believe that the disaster
would not have baen ao great had tha
crew been disciplined and exercised
to act in concert In caao of a paai *
through fire or any other cauie. Ik
recommends that , to avoid tha re-cur-
ronca of a similar diisster , that tbo
ceilings and walls , floor * and officn
rooms of all steamboats should be n-
caaed in metal and a suitable dlatsnca
from the woodwork.
