BY IIENHT W. LQN'GFELLOW.
I see amid th fields of Ayr
A plowman, who in foul or fair,"
i Sings at his task,!
OO IHitl 11MM II lb
The laverock's song we hear, or his!
ror care- to ask.
i For him the plowing of thosefields
i A more ethereal harvest yields
j Than sheaves of grain ; "
: Songs tiusb with purple bloom the rye
j The plover's call, the curlew's cry, j
Sing in his brain.
Touched by his hand the way-side weed
Becomes a flower ; the lowliest reed
liesule tlie stieam r - ;
Is clothed with beauty ; horse and grass
Aud heather, where his footsteps pass
He sings of love, whoso flame illumes "
The darkness of love cottage rooms;
He feels the force, -
The treacherous under-tow and stress.
Uf the wayward passions and no less
The keen remorse.
At moments, wrestling witfi his fate, ; -His
voieels harsh, but not with hatej
The brush-wood bung -".
Above the tavern door lets fall
Its bitter leaf, its drop of gall,
Upon his tongue.! i
But still the burden of his song
In love-of right, disdain of wrong ; O.
In master-chords
Axe Manhood, Freedom, Brotherhood j
Its discord but au interlude
Between the words. .
And then to die so youugrand leave j
Unfinished what he might achieve !
Yet better sure
Is this than wandering up and down,
Au jold man in a country town,
Infirm and poor.
For now he haunts his native land
As an immortal youth ; his hand
; Guides every plow ;
He sits beside each ingle-nook ;
His voice is in each rushing brook,
Each rnstling bough.
His presence haunts this room to-night,
A form of mingled mist and light.
From the far coast. -Welcome
beneath this roof of mine !
Welcome ! this vacant chair is thiue,
Dear guest and ghost.

s.vord; to remove from positio and
honor a military . commander -who -.had
had the good sense of recognizing that in
time. of peace lhe civil law was superior
to inatial terroism and drumhead courts;.
Well, "the mills of the gods grind slow
ly," and unx it will be Hancock's turn,
before the higher tribunal of the nation,
to meet and confound his ancient enemy.
In November, 1807, Hancock assumed
command of Louisiana and Texas,. and then
was issued his famous order No. 40, in which
was proclaimed that the great principles of .
American liberty are still the lawful inheri-
tanceof the people, adding: "The right of
trial bv jurv, the habeas corpus, tlie liberty
, .. , , r
of the press, the freedom of speech, the na-
toral rights of persons and-the rights ol pro -
perty, must be preserved." Here w&s a
statesman s prpnouncement from a soldier's
pen; here, aconstitution, in tatLe, ocyond
which any nation desiring freedom or pro
tending to its possession need not go. But
Mr. Garfield, the President- nominate of the
Radical party, could not sec it in that liyht
when could any of the party since the
days" of Lincoln see liberty of thought or
freedom of action in any favorable aspect-
1868, less than two months after Hancock's
model manifesto, asked the unanimous con
sent of Congress to offer for consideration i
and action a bill to -reduce and improvelhe
miliary esiaonsmnent oy awcnarging. one
axajor-vjcuci ai.
it .: 1
A bill to "improve" tlie military establish
ment into a military despotism a bill to
remove the constitutional soldier to give
full swing to the imperial absolutist a bill
to punish the military commander who had
not forgotten that the civil element and its
prosperity were the condition and comple
ment of - the nation's life. This bill fell
through; but a second bill was soon after
introduced which struck at Hancock also,
for it aimed at compelling Jhe Major-Gener-af
to obey the orders of the General of the
Army (Grant) and net of Johnson, the Pres
ident. The real animos.was to subordinate
the civil to the military power ia all the
South, and to remove Hancock because he
recognized the law as superior to the sword.
Garfield's speech in support of this latter
bill is a model of vituperation and venom.
President Johnson was attacked for using
his authority to obstruct and delay the res
toration of the States, and Hancock was re
ferred to as the Major-General of the Army,
in whom Johnson had found a facile instru
ment for obstructing reconstruction.
This bill passed the house yeas, 124, all
Republicans nays, 45, all Democrats Jas.
A. Garfield- voting in the majority for te
humiliation of Hancock. And now, as tljie
committeeVdocumerit pointedly puts it jit
is Hancock, the soldier, civilian and the law.
against Garfield, the disgraced civilian, and
the sword above the law.
Gbast Not a Bad Mas. There are sonic
flowers on every, thorn bush. It appears
from Gen. Grant's Galena speech that he is
not as bad as he might be. His voting re
cord is a clean one, inasmuch as he has nei
ther cast a ballot for himself nor for Hayes.

The Charlotte Democrat, whose ed
itor has lived in Charlotte for the
last twenty-five years, characterises
the assertion as a baseless fabrication.
The Democrat says :
"Gen. Barringer is reported as as
serting in one of his speeches in Stan
ly county, that the people of Meck
lenburg and Charlotte were so intoler
ant as .to refuse at one time to permit
the late Gov!. Morehead to speak in
Charlotte. The assertion is without
the least foundation in truth, and the
General must certainly have been cra
zy whea he made such a statement. No
respectable man of any party was ev
er , prevented ' from making a public
speech in this city, before or since the

"V1 "dl"ri surrouna nimselt with
u,v' 01 'e instincts and ot similar

character. Hancock would
never
knowingly appoint a dishonest man :
to office ; and if by mistake be should i
appoint such a man, he would be
prompt and decided in rectifying the
mistake by an unceremonious remov
al as soon as it was discovered.
Witli General Hancock President
the country would enjoy that substan
tial, practical, desirable reform in the
civil service which, naturally comes j
from having a pure, robust, upright
man, intoleraut of dishonesty aud of
negligence at the head of affairs. We
should have what is attainable of civ
il service reform, in substance, in place
of so much sentimental twaddle, with
out performance, on that subject as
we have now.
In these respects Gen. Garfield is
the very oppoiite of General Hancock.
His training is that of the mere party
politician. By instinct and habit he
is a demagogue. His strength consists
mainly in the adriot practice of the
arts of the partisan. For money he
betrayed hisrust as a member of the
National Legislature; for office he
bdsely betrayed his confiding friend
in the Chicago Convention. If elect
ed he would environ himself with low
aud venal characters , like Richard
Harrington, who is one of his promi
nent and most ardent supporters.
With a man for President who has
once dishonorably put money in his
purse, what sort of characters may we
expect to see in subordinate places.
Let the thoughtful, intelligent, con
scientious, patriotic voters of the Uni
ted States consider these great differ
ences between Hancock and Garfield.

Extraordinary Lying:.
January 31, 1879, John Sherman
wrote the following letter to Chester
Ai Arthur, collector of customs of
New York, now the Republican can
didate for the Vice Presidency :
''Gross abuses of administration
have continued and iucreased during
your incumbency. Persons have been
regularly paid by you who have ren
dered little or no service. The ex
penses of yonr office have increased,
winie its receipts have diminished.
Bijibes, or gratuities in the shape of
bribes, have been received by your
huboiditiatcs in several branches of
th$ custom house, and you have in no
case supported tlie effort 10 correct these
abuses.
111 his Cincinnati speech last Mon
day he said :
have never mid one word impugn
ing Gen. Arthur's honor or integrity as
a man and a gentleman, but he was not
in harmony with the views of the au
ministration in the management of the
custom houfse. While I would not,
perhaps, have recommended his uom
ination, yet I would vote for him for
Vice Presiiei-t a million times before

whom I served in Congress.

to light about him, to be a man of sound
