After weeks ot deliberation, Gen. Han
cock has been forced, by tlie pressure of
Northern sentiment, to state bis position
In regard to tho payment of Southern war
el '-tints not barred by the Constitution.
He states emphatically, but in rattier a
flippant manner, that lie will veto all
legislation providing tor the payment of
such claims that is, claims presented by
"persons who were in rebellion, whether
pardoned or not." He concludes, how
ever, that the claims of Union men, who
snflered from the operations of the war.
hardly' come under tbe 3ame head ; but he
objects to paying even claims of Union
men "unless subjected to the closest scru
tiny." Hancock may be honest in this
matter, yet he leaves a loophole through
which a designing man may escape.
What looks suspicious iu tlie matter, is
tlie length ot time taken to consider bis
answer. It Is known to all the world that
these claim?, amounting to hundreds ot
. millions of dollar, have been presented to
Congress, and tJetr payment urged for
years past ; I Uflen thought it necessary
to denounce tlieir payment, in the strongest
terms, four years ago ; yet when Gen
Hancock Is asked his views in tlie matter.
he requires, according to Democratic au
thority, two weeks in which to answer so
8imrle a question. But granting, for
argument's sake, that Gen. Hancock i:
opposed to paying any and al! ot these
claims, behind him stands the Democratic
party, which is determined that these
ciaitns shall be paid : and it Is noticeable
that the Democratic party, either in its
platform or elsewhere, has made no pledges
In the matter, but has continued to receive
and All tho files of Congress with these
claims and to consider thfm In com
mittee. Therefore we consider the query
of the New York Tribune as pertinent at
this time : "Is there not considerable

A Washington special telegram to the
Cincinnati Gnsette ssys . A copy of the
Trve I", a democratic paper published
at Birmingham. Alabama, ws received
to-night. It has the names ot Hancock
and English standing at the head of Us
editorial column, and under them it pilots
the following remarkable admission that
thi rhnnre ot cross fraud at the State
election arc true :
It Is amusing to read the many different
reasons given by the papers for the vote of
Alabama in the recent election. Scarcely
any two ot them agree, and all seem
anxious to persuade tbe world that there is
a reason. None as yet have given the
true one. This would be damaging. It is
necessary, however, that they should print
it, for the enlightenment ot the people ;
they already know it, and regret that it
exists. They also regret that, it is neces
sary to make so many and so various
excuses for the result of an election in this
State. They realize the ftiet, and regret It
also, that gre.-t. danvige has been done to
Gen. Hancock iu the race for the presi
dency by the put-up majority of 95,000.
The cry of fraud has been raised by a
cheated and wronged people, and It Is
repented throughout the land, exaggerated
doubtless and it is telling fearfully against
him iu the north, and blighting, we fear,
chances that were bright up to the time
the manipulator handled that iniquity
that disgraces the legislation of last
session, the new election law. Had it not
been used as it was it would have failed,
perhaps, of its purpose. It bears on its
face fraud, and of emtte, as it was intend
ed to defraud, it was so used. It was too
much used, however, and tha 95,000
looks about as ugly now as the eight to
seven commission did four years ago, ued
to cheat TiMen out of tlie presidency.
Both these democratic performance re
understood by the great mass of the people
and they are not so much surprised
at either as the press seem to be
now at the 05,000 majority. They know
who planned and executed them, and
what tor, nud they will not fail to say if
Hancock is deleated that the defeat came
to hiui through the same channel as the
cheat did to Tildeu.
There was, in our opinion, no necessity
for so gigantic a fraud for any part3 pur
poses. The eight to seven commission
was a regular bonanza of the kind, and
there need not have U-en an effort on the
part of the " so-e illed" to pale tho laurels
already won. Twenty or twenty-five
thousand majority would have been
enough to fully secure all the oflieers of the
state and tested the working capacity of
the " machine," that can grind put ballots
and add up mnjoiities that don't exist.
That disfranchises the people and denies
them the right of a free ballot and an
honest count.' tli most sacred civil right

some provision of law. as in case of Post
master, U. S. Commissioner, or other
In his speech Monday night, we are in
formed Senator Slater assailed Gen. Gar
field's character. As Mr. Slater has none
himself, except what little he may have
gained by his salary steal," or " back-
Day grab.' as it is sometimes called, he
seems to think this fact entitles him to vil
ity and defame men who have character as
well as brains. As the charges lie made
against Gen. Garfield have been refuted
over and over again, by leading men. tod.
in the Democratic party men of brains
and national reputation we are led to
believe that Senator Slater Is either very
ignorant of current political matters, or a
Worthy of Consideration.
In a letter to Hon. John A. Logan, in
response to an invitation to the ex-President
to preside at a Garfield and Arthur
mass meeting to be held in New York,
Gen. Grant pens tlie following pertinent
and weighty wntence :
We should never be beaten until everv
man who counts, or represents those who
count in the enumeration te give represen
taion In the Electoral Co'lege, can cast his
vote just as he pleases, aud can have it
counted just as he cats it.
a senrence more mil 01 meaning was
never written by Gen. Grant, and it is
woithy the earnest consideration of every
true patriot of every man who loves his
country and its laws.
Nine hundred thousand dollars has been
paid by the Slate of Oregon to Dr. Haw
thorne during the last sixteen years for
keeping the insane, or. to be exact, $897,-
116 18. adding to this the amount drawn
up to 1864, and it will make over one
million dollars, and yet this leach upon the
body politic is stiil wanting more.
The editor of the Petalnnaa Courier was
so elated oyer the Democratic victory in
Maine that be exclaimed iu a transport,
Hoop us eomebody, or we'll bust." We
trust that his wish was well complied with
the later news from the Pine Tree Stat
no doubt rendered such a precaution
- Senator Slater sententlously declared
that the Democratic party, " ot which he
was whom," was weddird, absolutely wed
ded to " free speech and free ballot." and,
like other speaker of his kind, intimated
that the charge of fian I and ballot-box
stuffing, and shot-gun practice and all that
kind ot thing in this country, as far us the
Duinocratrl party was cone-erued, was all a
mistake, an abolition lie, 30 to speak. The
Itinociacy have fceut speakers elsewhere
in this canvass who positively assert that
!eare and quiet reign in the soli.l
South," that free speech Is tolerated, that
ilccliotis are fairly conducted, and that
every voter can exercise the right of suf
frage without d.mger that the Southern
Democracy is devoted to tho Union '. I
How can we characterize such assertions
in tlie face of eveiy day facts ? Language
fails us. In this connection we may be
permitted to offer a little teti:no:iy which
seems to give the lie direct to all such
Democratic assertions of " free speech and
free ballot." We first call attention to the
r.ote addressed by "the Boys of Shuluida,"
Mississippi, to Greenbaeker Itaindell
when he eut there to make a speech, and
the remarks ot the spokesman of " The '
Boys" made to Mr. Uamsdell by way ot ;
" Dear Sir : We .will give you and your :
parti thirty-rive minutes to pick up your j
i!uda and git out of this town. Yours to;

Tlie average Northerner, who is a
matter-of-fact person, will be puzzled to
find any evidence of toleration or of the
devotion ot the Southern Democracy to
tree speech and uolUical action in the
above." It may be said that the Boy ot
Shubuda" do not fairly represent the senti
ment ot the people of that section. We.
will, then, look elsewhere. The following
is an extract from a letter of a mm who
was formerly a Democrat anJ an officer in
n Indiana regiment, but now a resident
of Meridian, Mississippi, to the Iudiaua-
1 Kills Journal :
I feel it to lie my duty to write to you
this letter in tha hour of our despeiate
need. There Is no tree speech here.
Everything is under the control ot the old
secession leaders. - - - 1 was oruereo
to leave l'elahatchle (Miss ) a tew days
ince because i remarked that GarticM is a
good man. I was informed in Butler.
Alabama, that if I was not a Democrat I
must leave the town. I was in both places
on business. The oM ' Thirty
Fifth' know me and I ask tlie hoy to vote
the way they fought. I will never vote
another lemocrniic ticket so long as God
spares my life."
It may I- said that this man is a " enr-
let bagger." and consequently should not
be believed unless properly vouched for.
Very well : let us take a few extracts from
the Sunt hern Democratic press. That
mn.-t represent the prevailing sentiment.
The following is clipped from the Green
ville, (S. C.) -.Veir. a warm supporter ot
Senator Wade Hampton :

it is fair to assume that it received the

declarations as the aboye 011 the ground
that they are the utte-ances of men having
no influence. Very good ; Senator M. C.
Butler, of South Carolina, is a man of in
fluence and ability. Whatever he may
have said resjiecting the treatment of
Republicans or Independents by the South
ern Democracy must be accepted as testi
mony. In a speech delivered a few weeks
since he said :

and implored not to persevere in his
course, and he drifted on and on. and
floundered deeper and deeper into the

Unquestionably the above sentiments
were intended excluMyely for home con
sumption, as they are suited to the Demo
cratic climate south of Mason and Dixon's
line. .The Democratic sentiments suited to
other portions ot the country are of another
character, and are manufactured exclusive
ly tor export. It is well to understand
this now and make no mistake about it.
Gen. Weaver is the Greenback vandldate
for tlie Presidency. This is what he thinks
of Geii. Hancock's "full vote, tree ballot
and tair count" in the Southern States :
Why, when a man votes down there, die
judges ot election, who sit behind a screen
so no one can see them, look at his ballot,
and if it suits them they put it in the box ;
but if it doesn't suit, tliey tear it up and
put another that does suit them iu the
box.: Such is the condition of affairs iu
the South to-day.
This sf atemeut he made at Cooper In
stitute, New York, 011 the night of the
Maine election, at the moment when the
Democrat were exulting over that event.
The point tor the north to catch. Is that i-i
the south the throwing out of votes is no
longer limited to those cast by "niggers."
No man who votes the Republican ticket
can expect to have his vote counted, no
matter whether be is white or black.

in which he says :
There is not the leat doubt that if

portance to the country, they will be un
dertaken by gentlemen wlo have the cap
ital and the resources to construct them in
the shortest possible time without enormous

The holders of the peerage ot Lord Cliff
ord and of Lord De Clifford are descended
in tlie male and female line respectively
from the once great and powerful home of
Clifford, who enjoyed the earldom of Cum
berland, and who stood next to the Pcrcies
in the north of England. Of late years
the ancient br.rony of De Clifford has
passed, through females, into one or two
different families. Nevertheless, the titlf
is still extant. All our readers are aware,
no doubt, that the old bridge across the
Thames at Blackfi iars was the work of an
engineer named James Mylne. It is not
often that the architect of a bridge becomes
also the architect of a peerage ; and yet
one of the merest accidents in the world,
in wltich Mylne figured as the principal
hand, conferred that very ancient title, or
at all events Its revival, upon a plain Som
ersetshire gentleman. The story is told at
some length In the "General Biographical
Dictionary" ot Chambers. Mr. Mylne
happened to be engaged in making some
very great alterations and improvements

there he commenced making some plans.
in the course ot which he discovered in the
back part of the house a small room, to
which apparently there were no means 01

a great quantity ot old family plate and a

the King revived the dormant title and
Mr. Southwell took his seat among tlie
peers of England, as second on the roll of
barons In 1776. The room in which these
papers were found had in all probability
been closed up for the sake of security,
during the " troublous times" of the reign
of Charles I, and had never been opened
subsequently upward of a century. Tlie
absence ot damp and the exclusion of air
110 doubt had contributed to the preserva
tion of the precious document which con
ferred a coronet 00 Mr. Southwell. The
title, at the death ot this nobleman's son
aad successors, fell into abeyance, which
was terminated, in 1833, in favor of his
eldest daughter, Sophia, who married Cap-
Itain John Russn, and whose grandson is
the present holder of It.

The Republican party, in opposition to

'controls it, saved the country from destruc-
It has given the country a sound cur
rency from which in the main has resulted
tbe general prosperity.
It is patriotic and loyal, and regards the
United States as a nation and not a rope ot
It seeks to maintain the Constitution
and to enforce all laws made in pursuance
It seeks that union and reconciliation
which is the triumph of principles fought
tor, and not that of tissue ballots aud in
timidation. It demands that every man who counts
or represents those who count, in the
enumeration to give representation in the
electoral college, shall cast his vote just as
he pleases, and shall have it counted lust
as he cast it.
It believes that the perpetuity and suc
cess of Republican institutions depends
upon universal education, and It promotes
the same by every means iu its power.
