Columbcs, Oliio, July 8, 187G.
To Hon. Edward McPherson, Hon.
W.A. IIOWAKI), HON. J.R.liAINEY,
and others, Committee of the Repub
" lican National Convention
Gentlemen; In reply to your official
communication of June 17th, by which
X am informed of my nomination tor tho
office ot President ot the United States
by tbe Republican Convention at Cin
cinnati, I accept the nomination with
gratitude, and hope that under Provi
dence I shall be able, if elected, to exe
cute the du'ics of the high office as I
trust tor the benefit of all the people.
I do not deem it necessary to enter ap
on any extended examination ot the
declaration of principles made by the
Convention.. Tlie resolutions are in
accord with my views and I heartily
tsoucur in the principles they announce.
, In several of the resolutions, however,
questions are considered which are of
each importance that I de;;m it proper
to briefly express mv convictions in re
gard to them. The 5th resolution
adopted by the Convention is of para
mount interest. More than forty years
ago a question of making appointments
to office grew np, based upon the
maxim : "To the victors belong the
epoik." The old rule, the true rule,
that "honesty, capacity and fidelity"
constitute the oulv real qualifications
for office, and that tire re is no other
claim, gave place to the idea that party
services were to be chiefly considered.
All parties in practice Lave adopted
this system- It has been essentially
Clod i tied siuce its first introduction. It
lias not, however, been improved. At

all the appointments; but gradually the
appointing has in many cas pasted in-
to the control of the members of Con
gress. The offices iu these cases have
become not merely rewards tor party
servicas, but rewards for so vices to party
leaders. This system destroys the inde
pendence ot the separate departments
of the government. Jt tends directly to
extra vaaance and official iucanaeitv; it
is a temptation to dUhonely; it hinders
and impairs tha careful supervision and.
strict accountability by which alone
"faithful and efficient public Eervice can
be securedj it obstructs tbe prompt re
moval and sure punishment ot tho un
worthy: in every way? it degrades the
civil service and the character of the
government ; it ia felt, I am confide
by a large majority of the members of
Congress to be an intolerable burden
and an unwarrantable hindcrance to the
- proper discharge ot their legitimate
duties, aud it ought to be abolished.
The reform should be thorough, radical
and complete. We ehould return to
the principles and practices of the
launders of tbe government, supply hio
legislation, when needed, that which
was formerly tho established custom
They neither expect uor desire from the
public officer any partisan eervice; they

of the government on these principlee.
and a'l constitutional powers vested in

A division of political parties Vesting

attractions it can offer to labor, to immi
gration aud - to capital ; but laborers
will not go and capital wiil not be ven

of peaceful and law abiding social life.
All parts of the constitution are sacred
and must be sacredly observed; those
parts that are new no less thau those
parts that are o'd. The moral and ma
terial prosjerity of the Southern States
can be most effl-ctually advanced by
a hearty and generous recognition of
the rights of all, by a recognition with
out reserve or exception. With such
a recognition fully accorded, it will be
practicable to promote by the influence
ot all legitimate agencies ot the general
government, -the efforts ot the people of

the blessings of honest and capable lo
cal government. If elected, T sha'l

WHEELERS LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE.
Xew Yoek, July ,20. Wheeler ac
cepts, in a letter, of which the following
is an extract:
To tbe summary of doctrine enunciated
by the convention, I give my cordial
assent, Tbe Republican party has en
trenched in the organic law of our laud
the doctrine that liberty is tbe supreme,
unchangeable law for every foot of
American soil. It is the mission ot
that party to give full effi to "this
principle by securing to every American
citizen complete liberty and equality iu
tbe exercise ofall civil, political and
public rights. This will be accom
plished only when citizens, witfcout re
gard to color, shall wear this panoply
of citizenship as fully and as securely
in the canebrakoe of Louisiana as on
the banks ot the St. Lawrence. Upon
the question of our Southern relations,
my views were recently expressed as a
member of tbe committee of the U. S.
House of Representatives. Those views
remain unchanged, and were thus ex.
pressed : " We of the North delude
ourselves in expecting that the masses
of the South, so far behind in niauy of
the attributes ot enlightened improve
ment and civilization, are, 'in s brief
period of ten or fifteen years, to be
transformed into1 our model Northern
communities. .That: can only come
through a long course of patient waiting
to which no one can set certain bounds.
Thae will be a good deal of unavail
able friction, which" will call for forbear
ance, which will have to, be relieved by
temperate fostering care ot tbe govern
ment. ? One of tbe most potent, if not
indispens.ble, ayeiicies in tin direction
' ! - -
Rld tIie .education , of the masses,
The fact that there , are whole counties
j in Louisiana in which there is no public
i 00,100,8 is f11 ot uggetion. We com.
filled these people to remain in the Un
ion, and now duty and interest de
mand that we leave no just means on
tried to make them good loyal cisizens.
How to diminish the JViction how.
to stimulate the elevation of this portion
- I ot our country, are problems addressing'
i cnizenslnp, with every right thereto
! belonging. The just ob isjrations to
puo ic creauors, wno creuitecl us when
tne government was in the throes of
ers, are to be kept with religious faith,
as are an me pledges subsidiary thereto
and confirraatery thereof. In my judg
ment the pledge of t'ongressot January
11, 1875, tor the redemption ot notes
ot T,he United States in coin is the
plighted faith of the nation, and the
national honor, which is simply honesty
and justice to the people whose perma
nent welfare and prosperity are to be
dependent npon true money as a basis of
pecuniary transactions, all demands
scrupulous observance of this p edge,
and it is the duty ot Congress to supple
ment with such legislation as shall be
necessary. The common schools of the
land should be preserved in all their
vigor, while in accordance with the
spirit ot the constitution all their endow
ments should be secured by every pos
sible and proper guaranty against every
form of sectarian influence or control.
There t-hou Id be' the strictest economy
in the expenditures ot the government
consistent witli its effective administra
tion, and unnecessary offices should be
abolished. Office should be conferred
only on the basis of high character and
particular fitness, and should be admin
istered only as public trusts aud not for
private advantage. The foregoing are
chief among the cardinal principles of
the Republican party, and U carry them
into run ana practical etlcct is the work
it now has on hand. To the comple
tion of its great mission we address our
selves in hoe and confidence, cheered
and Mimulaled by the recollection ot
its past achievements, remembering that
under Cod it is to that party that we
are indebted iu this Centennial year of
our existence for a preserved, unbroken
Union; tor the fact that there is no
master nor slave throughout our broad
domains, and that emancipated millions
Iook upon former republics as symbols
ot the fulfilled dec aration that all men
were created free aid equal, and a
guaranty of their own equality under
the law with the most highly lav-ored
citizpn of the land. To the intelligence
ai.d conscience of all who require a
good government, with good money
and universal prosperity, the Republican
party, not unmindful of the imperfec
tion and short comings of human organi
zation, yet with the honest purpose of
its masses promptly to retrieve all errors
and punish all offenders against the
laws ot the country, confidently sub
mits its claims for the continued support
of the American people.
Tho Walla Walla Union, of last Sat
urday, says: "3Jany of the farmers lo
cated along the foot-hills have com
menced harvesting their grain. The
proprietors of headers a i ll threshers
have been busy for some time making
contracts to head and thresh, and the
farmers' wives are busy preparinglfbr the
great event of the year, the coming of
the harvest hands.. Every man who
comes to town and expresses a ccsire to
work, obtaius a situation at once at
good wages. There is a lively demand
for harvest hands now, and the supply
is not equal to the requirements of our
agriculturists. Good judges place the
surplus crop ot the valley at 20.000 tows,
or 600,000 bushels of grain, while some
are quite certain that the surplus wilt
eqnal 30,000 tons. The first estimate
is not far wrong, in our opinion. The
indications all point towards a very low
price for wheat this fall the figures 30
to 85 cents per bushel, representing the
present impressions of buyers."
' Brick Pomroy, whose course as an
editor made him so notorious daring the
war and afterwards, has started a new
Democratic paper. He, however, does
not propose to support Tilden for Presi
dent. He denounces Tild n as the tool
ot Tammany, and will oppose him with
all the- vigor and energy tor which he is
notorious.- As to the financial questions
cf tho day, the new paper will advocate
the repeal of tbe resumption act. No
candidate tor President is nominated.
The Central and Union Pacific mi
roads are to be re-measured by a crops
of engineers, to determine whether the
length as reported by the companies is
cotrect. Whether this is so or not, it
becomes important, in view of the fact
that the quantity of land to be donated
to the companies - depends upon the
length of the road.

The Enormoni Wealth of ttaettreaC SOrer
.... JUot t?roprt9trm. i
The yield of the Consolidated Vir
ginia mine, says the N. Y. Sun, in
March last, was $3,634,298 29. These
figures are official as I got them from
Mr.; Taylor, principal book-keeper.
Since this mine commenced paying
dividends it stockholders have received
$20,000,000 in round numbers. Tbe
California mine, the richest known mine
in 'the world, paid its first monthly
dividend on the 15th inst., $1,080,000,
or two dollars per share for each of its
540,000 shares. These two mines pay
monthly dividends ot 2,160,000 dol
lars. Beginning in July, the California
mine is.expected to pav a monthly divi
dend ot three dollars per share, or $1,
720,000 monthly. . The present price
per share of these stocks is respectively:
Ca'ifornia, $80; Consolidated Virginia,
'673. Like all mining stocks tl.ev are
subject to startling fluctuations. The
knowing ones, however, do net look
for any material changes in the prices of
these two stocks this Summer. It is
not altogether a matter ot speculation
in regard to thepe mines. Wbat-ore
they contain -is pretty closely ascer
tained. At present there isenouprl, first.
class ore therein to keep the mines going
for at least three years.
Co'onel Fair, Superintendent, is now
erecting a new 80-stamp mill, in addition
to the . numeroiH mills already pos
sessed by himself and partners When
this is finished you will hear of some
of the unparalleled results from the
Bonanza mines. Fair expects to turn
out $5,000,000, a mouth. He can lo it.
It is only a question ot milling facilities.
There is no lack of on?.
In view ot the stupendous wealth of
these mines, the qnestion often occurs
to me : what will be the eventual limit
ot the wealth of the four gentlemen
popularly known as the "Bonanza
Kings ?" People who have watched
their fortunes with critical eves estimate
that they are now worth in money aud
property upward ot 8100,000 J)00. It
is a common remark here that Mackav4
his an income of $00,000, gold, a
a month, Since the California mines
commenced faying dividends it must
hate added at least $150,000 to his
monthly income. I thbik 1 may sav
that his monthly income is, in round
numlers, a million of dollars.'
I notice iu the 'otters of correspon
dents a wide-spread error in regard to
all these men. It is generally believed
by Eastern people who have read of
tho wouuderful fortunes oi the "Bo-
- IT? . .
nanza tviiigs, n.ai tiiey naye been ac
quired 'withiu the last year, and that
none of them, were comfortably fixed
before the developments of the Con
solidated Virginia mine. This is all a
mistake. Flood a;. d O'Brien were worth
200,000. ten years ago, and they have
been adding to it ever since. Fair was
worth half a nv'llion seven years ago,
and Maekay had been a millionaire long
before the - Consolidated Virginia was
dreamed of. I make these corrections
for tlie benefit ot such incorrecls as
think the millionaires have nothing to
do but throw 20 gold pieces at every
lH?rson who takes it into his or her head
lu write begging letters to them. It
wuld not be believed that there were
such arrant fools iu the world as some
ot the ietters received prove their writers
to be. Money is asked tor by people
hundreds and thousands of miles away
on every conceivable pretence. For
instance, a Washington woman wrote
Mr. Macay that her daughter had been
hlaudered, and she requested him to
forward 1,500 to hire counsel to take
the matter into the courts. And this

their was nothing very peculiar in a
Brazilian Empress approaching the
American grocery, but when her Majes

upon tlie steps of the aforesaid grocery,
with Dona Josefina by her side, and
the male attendants called for lager for
four, then came that true inwardness of
feeling which always surrounds a merry

forcemeat of the principles embodied I hi
theJTiTni Constittional amendment to
JZPFZ nn n the Congress
of the United States, and we declare it to
be the solemn obligation of the legislative
and executive departments of the govern

exercise all their constitutional powers for
removing any just causes for discontent on
the partof any class, and for securing to
every American citizen complete liberty
and exact equality In the exercise of ail
civii, political and public rights. To this
end we imperatively demand a Cono-res
and a Chief Executive, whose conran-e'and
fidelity to these duties shall not falter until
these results are placed beyond dispute or

President Grant, the National Governmn.,t

of the people concerning political affair,
and will hold all public officers to a rigid
responsibility, and engage that the prose

7. The public school system of the several
States I the bulwark of Ihe American Re
public, and with a view to its security anil
permanence. we recommend an amendment
to tlie Constitution of the United States for
bi.lfltng the appropriation of any public
funds or property for the benefit of anv
schools or institutions under sectarian con
trol. 8. The revenue necessary for current ex
penoirures and the obligations of ihe public
debt, must be largely derived from duties
npon importations, which, so far as possi
ble, should be adjured to promote the in
terests of American labor, and advance the
prosjierity or the wlio'e country.

passed to protect immigrants, in tlie ab

to fully investigate the effect of the immi

approval the substantial advances recently
made toward the establishment of equal
rights for woman by the many important
amendment effected by Republican legis
latures, in tho laws which concern tl e per
sonal and property relations ot wives,
mothers and widows, and by the appoint
ment and election of women to the superin
teii'Jence of education, ot charities, and
other public truts. The honest demands
of this class of citizens for additional rights,
privileges, aud iinmunit ies, should be treat

13. The Constitution confers upon Con
gress sovereign power over the Territories
of tlie United States for their government,
and in the exercise of this power it Is right
and the duty of Congress to prohibit and
extirpate in the Territories that relic ot
barbarism, polygamy ; and we demand
such legislation as shall secure this end and
the supremacy of American institutions in

feelings and tendencies. ve. therefore,
note with deep solicitude, that the Demo
cratic party counts, as Its chief hope of suc
cess, upon the electoral vote of a united
South rcured through tlie efforts of those
who were recently arrayed against the na
tion, and we invoke tl ie earnest attention
of the country to the grave truth that a
success uius acnieveu would reopen section

18. We charge the Democratic party
with being the same in character and spirit
as when it sympathised with treason; with
making iu control of the House of Repre
sentatives tlie triumph and opportunity of
the nation's recent foes; with reasserting
and applauding in the National Capital the
sentiment of unrepentant rebellion ; with
sending Union soldiers to the rear, and
promoting Confederate soldiers to the front;
with deliberately proposing tOTepudiate
tlie plighted fait h of tlie government ; with
being false and imoecile npon the overshad
owing financial questions; with thwarting
tiie end of justice by Its partisan wismaii
agement and obstruction of investigation ;
with proving itself, through the period ot
IU ascendancy in the Lower House of Con
gress, ntterly incompetent to administer
tlie government, and we warn the country
agHtust trusting a party thus alike unwor
thy, recreant and incapable.

commendation for its honorable worw in
tlie management of domestic aud foreign
affairs, and President Grant deserves the
continued hearty gratitude of the American
people for hi patriotism and his eminent
services In war and In peace-
