To'J. 3f. Griffith, Ktq.
' Chairman. Ac.:
Di:au Sir : 1 have the pleasure to ac
knowledge your letter of tho 20th on
behalf of tho Republican Committee of
Fredericksburg, Inviting me to address
a Itcpublican meeting at that, place on
the 8th prox. 1 coraprtled to dc
dine tho invitation, as 1 have done
others, although duly sensible of the
honor done me. I Jiave a business en
gagement In Richmond on that day
which will prevent me from accepting,
if there was no other impediment.
Hut nothing would tempt me to take
the ttump this summer except tho con
viction that by that means only can
Horace Greeley bq beaten, and as that
cannot be, because ho will bo beaten
certainly without it, and Jf not, any
speech from me would be of but little
avail, I must beg to be excused. To be
candid as well as Eerious; however, I
mast nay I am not prepared to take the
stump at present for Gen. Grant. I am
a Democrat (by which I mean a Con
stitutional Republican) on principle,
and not without hopo that the Louis
ville Convention wTill nominate a
straight-oat Democrat in September,
qualified by character and ability to
till the high office of President. If it
dot, I shall vote for him. If it does
not I shall vote for Gen. Grant, and
will then do anything which I can
with honor to promote nis election, be
cause I think him a far better man in
all respects than Horace Greeley, and
far more fit to be Pressdcnt or the na
tion. , - .
GRANT A MAN TILE SOUTH MAY
One is a -renowned warrior of whom
tho South may well say : "Qreat let
me call him. for he conquered me:"
who enjoys tho respect of the civilized
nations of the world, except the Con
servative nation of Baltimore; whoso
great error has been that he followed
too much the devices and desires of
such men as Greeley and Sumner and
Trumbull and Schurzand Brown, until
they have nearly undone him, and now
betray him for a price.
OKEEL15Y R KNOWN" ED ONLY VOll FOIr
The other is ft renowned ismatic, fa
mous for nothing but his follies, his
furmlnc and his WOod-chODPlnjr, his
"wantof Vrinaple.'"" "A "Fourerite, a free
invpr nf tho McFarland order, and a
woman's rights - man, must be either
fool or knave. If he sincerely believes
in thoso dogmas in a state of organized
society, he Ts a fool. If he dot's not,
then lie pretends to believe (for a con
sideration) what he does not, and is a
knave. If the Almighty Maker of us
all had intended that the world should
be without government and man with
out property, He would not have in
culcated obedience to "the powers that
be," or denounced the man who fail3
to provide for his own family as worse
than an infidel ; would have said char
ity begins abroad and not at home, and
would not have said, Thou shalt not
steal," as man can steal property only.
If Jie had intended to tolerate free love,
he would not have Instituted marriage
and denounced adultery. If he had in
tended man and , woman to be equal,
and woman to ride like Mrs. "Squat
ting Bear." he would not have given
Eve as helpmate to Adam; would
have made Adam bear children as well
as Eve, and would not have allowed
side-saddles to be made. -;v !
WORSE THAN ALL. ?
Ilut great as these defects and vices
are, Horace Greeley is stained by an
other, which is far more detestable to
me, which makes it as impossible for
me to vote for him as to denounce my
wi fe and daughter. If there ever lived
on earth, In Sparta or in Paradise, a
race of pure, spotless, heroic women,
the women oT tho South are such.
They gave their husbands and sons,
their homes and altars, and almost ev
ery hopo of earthly happiness to their
country and her cause, and because
they did so this demon of The Tribune
.uttered and published in his paper, as
I am credibly informed, ami the proof
of it will bo exhibited, the following
-false and infamous libel upon them:
"The tcomai qf the South nursed by
blaclsJJUed by animal passion imbibe
it from their nurses, and on arriving at
the age of puberty, immediately manifest
a &ire to gratify sensuality."
v Was ever before, by any mortal or im
mortal demon, such a hateful thought
expressed; such concentrated venom
poured out? In the recollection of the
CTeat deeds of our noble dead, in the
presence of their surviving mothers,
widows and daughters, will Southern
men-can they, by their votes, say to
this monstrous slanderer, " well done,
thou good and faithful citizen ; receive
the reward prepared for you by your
suppliant victims since the overthrow
of the hated Confederacy?" Spirits of
Ijce and Jackson, It was a merciful God
who would not allow your last hours
to Ins agonized and your final repose
disturbed by defending such an offer
inir. When It is made, but one thing
will remain to be done to complete the
shame and disgrace of the South, and
that will bo to burst the cerements of
the eraves In Southern eemetries and
carry the sacred ashes to the Chappaqua
farm to manure its barrea hill-sides.--Women

Dr. Francis Licbcr, the eminent Ger
man leader and scholar, wrote to a
friend in Washington, a few days ago,
his views on the present national can
vass. The letter was so complete; an
argument In so short a space that: the
gentleman to whom it was addressed
obtained permission to print it. It is
as follows : f
" New York, August 3, 1872. .
"Dear Sir: I have always taught
it as a maxim of fundamental impor
tance that he who has a right to vote
is in duty bound to vote. Snubbing
tho poll is undutiful. ,Yoting for an
impossible candidate is equivalent to
not doing our duty, especially in a
country tho jolicy of which is prima
rilv founded unon ceneral suffrage.
We come down then to do this: we
must vote, and can vote only either for
Grant or for Mr. Greeley. We cannot
vote for a man in the moon, nor ought
we to abstain from the ballot box.
Solon mado a law that in civil commo
tions every Athenian should take one
side or the other. Certain it is that in
peaceful times, if mere absence of civil
war be called peaceful times, the prin
ciple of Solon's law ought to be univer
sally accepted and acted upon.. Evon
the nomination "of , Mr. Greeley, and
especially the peculiar method ofthe
nomination at Cincinnati, seems to me
a deplorable fact in the annals of our
country, and the Baltimore ratification
is like concubinage between Republi
canism and democracy, taking these
words, of course, In their party mean
ings. Mark this. The democrats do
not surrender to the Republicans ; on
the contrary, Mr. Greeley and his fol
lowers surrender to the democracy.
Elections, liko battles, can rarely be
spoken of with certainty oerore tney
are fought. But this I know, should
Mr. Greeley be elected President of the
United States, we shall have in him a
far worse President than we had in
Mr. Buchanan. Is it not openly avowed
by secessionists, who declare them
selves Greeley men, that " the f lost
cause" will then stand once more a fair
chance? That pitiful state rights doc
trine none can know it better to its
inmost fibre than myself will visit us
again. It destroyed the noble Com
monwealth of the Netherlands; it
brought our republic to the brink of
ruin, and it would unavoidably bring,
upon us under that President, disloyal
disorder, and probably sanguinary con
fusion. As to financial ruin, that could
not be avoided. Nothing will be too
extravagant to apprehend from a com
bination such as must take place under
so weak and yet so reckless a man.
Repudiation, pensioning tho rebel sol
diers, assuming the southern debt.
Why not? The glorification of, tho
Kentucky resolutions, though, if tl re
collect right, Mr. Greeley calls them
in one of his works a rank treason! and
renewed civil bloodshed stare us In the
face. Nowhere are amiable fictions
more out of place than in statesman
ship, and a friend of mine, whose name
is widely known in both hemispheres,
would be obliged, should this country
really be visited with thatelectiori, not
indeed to shake' those hands which

warmly applaud, and doubtless; still
applaud, the cowardly and savage aet.
They charge Grant with centralism.
Do they again confound nationalism
with centralism? Have t hey not yet
learned from history and our own times
that the democracy is always inclined
toward absolutism and despotism?, All
state rights men, even Mr. Calhoun
he was personally my friend Jwere
severe centralists within their states.
Their idea of proper government in the
United States was only the utmost
possible state opposition to the national
eoverment, just as it had occurred in 4
the Netherlands. Still you may possi
bly object to this question, whether the
democrats have not led this country to
a glorious development. I -totally
deny it. The country has grown 'great
despite of that which is characteristic
ally democratic elective judiciary,
disregarding the Supreme Court, distri
bution of national funds, repudiation,
state rights doctrine, idolatry of slav
ery, and a civil war which fairly began
to resemble the German thirty years'
war. With reference to the democrats
and the success of this country, we
have the same old and ever-repeated
error in logic because things exist to
gether therefore they stand as cause and
effect to each other. Storks love tho
frogs of the Netherlands, and on every
farmer's house is a stork's nesti The
Netherlands was a republic ; therefore
it used to be said,. Storks like re
publics.' " We are told things ought to be fox
gotten. What have the Republicans
one ? Has one traitor been tried ?
has ever a people shown such absence
of vengenance as the Union people of
the United States have done? If, as I
pray God to avert, the democrats come
in again under Greeley, it requires no
prophet to foretell that we shall see a

A nominating- convention, supple

can not pull up by the roots tho preju

spouted from the hearts of half a na

strengthened through generations of
drill by speech and press. I believe
thiit the Democratic doctrine of "State
rights," when stripped of sophistry,
means the "right" of the rich and in
telligent few to oppress the poor and
ignorant masses, and to suffer their de
velopment without incurring the risk
of j interference on the part of the gen
eral government. This doctrine which
began with slavery, and becoming a
bone of contention in our national poli
tics, finally culminated in a civil war,
must end in politics, and be forever
settled by -the ballot. And believing
that a Democratic success will, in spite
of IMr, Greeley, ro-open the question,
while a re-election of Grant will be an
endorsement of the verdict rendered
byUhe Union armies, I shall cast my

Syracuse, N. Y., Aug.p, 1872.
To the Editor of The Utica Morning Herald:
Soon after the Cincinnati Convention,
when there seemed evidences that three
tickets would be in the field, I wrote
and published a " letter in which I fa
vored the election of Horace Greeley
over that of Mr. Grant, giving as my
reason my opinion that the former was
a better representative of American-intelligence
and progressive thought than
the latter. I havo not changed my'
mind on this point, but subsequent re
flection, aided by developments,, to
which the PhiladeJphia.ana, Baltimore
Conventions have given ' shape, have
led me to revoke my decison,fand to
declare for Grant as publicly asl.did
for Greeley. Aside from a plank in the
Philadelphia platform, which looks to
the enfranchisement of women & plank
which I heartily favor I find the two
platforms very nearly the Rime in sub

platforms "spit upon" and discarded.

how the 'national wealth has been

how gigantic swindles occur- and how
so many railroad and steamboat disas

are destined to exercise 'q, vast influence
upon American affairs.' This feeling of
sympathy, with us is. not confined' to a
certain class of people or to a certain
section of the country; it is general.
The common remark is, that Germany
and America are to be, politically, the
two guiding stars,' in the future. To
them must protestantism look. for pro
tection, against the, underhand swork
of priestcraft. This country, however,
is far ahead of any other in advanced
liberal religious ideas. The conscience
of the people are free, alike, from the
domineering harangues, . of the pro
testant Parson and the secret ' confes
sionals of the CathoKc Priest. In truth
this is the only country in the world
where perfect religious ; freedom is ex
ercised . The German preacher quietly
takes his beer' in the evening's at the
"locals," and associates with the peo
ple as a "jolly good fellow."

The Jesuits have been very troublous
to tho government. They are a class
of priests who blindly follow and obey
the petty republics of -South America,
where the religion is the chief impedi
ment to prosperity. In Italy, though
the King has made aggressions upon
the temporal power of the Pope, it can
not be claimed as a victory by Protest
(ants,,f for he is a devout Catholic, has
his palace near Rome to which he regularly--goes'
to attend masses.' And
again; he has no will to remove the
Pope from Rome, the latter person yet
wielding a very great influence among
all true Catholics. '
; Having thus briefly reviewed the
greater civilized powers, I think I may
reasonably conclude that America and
Germany will be the only great gov
ernments in the future. When I use
the word civilized, above, I mean to
'exclude Russia,' which will hardly
rank as an enlightened nation until
civilization shall have turned its course
to the east: : Of the future greatness of
the United States I feel certain, of that
of Germany I am not less confident.
Yet when I compare the two, our own
government looms high above Germa
ny. With us military service is not
compulsory, freedom is unrestrained,
and liberty the . watchword, uniy
when we leave our native son, anu beo
something of other nations, are we en
abled to form an adequate conception
of what we -have at 'home. Then do
we feel how heavy is that debt of grat
itude 'whjich we owe to our illustrious
and immortal ancestors, for having left
us a government of which-we may well
be so proud. But we must ever guard
with a jealous eye, our rights, our lib
erty, our country.

a drop of patriotic blood in his veins,

It i' a mark of the unsuccessful man,
that he invariably licks his stable door
when the horse has been stolen. This sort
of wisdom never thinks about bodily health
until it is gone. But ust as much as any
disease has become seated, the power of the
system to resist and throw it off is weaken
ed; hence time Is all important. For
dyspepsia, all diseases at the liver, stomach,
skin and kidneys and all that begin in
vitiated blood, do riot Twait until the trouble
is confirmed, but attack it by a tlmely'use
