Grant's Manifesto.
On the 10th of December last, ac
cording to reports from Washington,
in eastern papers, President Grant
became very commuriicativo and un
bosomed himself to a reporter of the
New York Associated Press.
To persons who have observed his
studied silence when ho was expected
to speak, this may appear strange,
but a little re flee tic n will make the
matter clear as noonday. After the
meeting of Congress he had been duly
drilled by those who bavo controlled
his administration and bo was niado
the oraclc,of tho party to utter high
sounding aad partisan expressions to
keep up the courage of the party and
prepare the way for a partisan cru
sade in Congress. The spirit of the
New York Times, Morton and Zach
Chandler prompted him, arid as ho
can have no hopes in the future, ex
cept such favors as lliey may have to
confer, ho launched his littlo boat,
which it is expected will carry Hayes
agaiont the popular current and over
the breakers of indignation'intotho
Presidential chair.
Itjruight be said, "lie stooped to
conquer," it he had ever shown him
self a President of Jibe pcoplo instead
of a very short-sighted and virulent
partisan ; but ho has shown through
out bis entiro political career so much
of the partisan and so little of the
statesman, that this act of his is in
harmony with his whole history as
President, except in garrulity.
President Grant said in his inaugu
ral address: "The responsibilities of
the position I leel, but accept them
without fear. Laws are to
govern all aliko, thoso opposed to, as
well tboso who favor them. The
countryjhaving just emerged from a
great rebellion, many questions will
come before it for settlement in tho
next four years. In meeting
these, it is desirable that they should
bo approached calmly, without preju
dice, hate or sectional pride, remem
bering that tho greatest good to tho
greatest number is the object to bo ob
tained. This requires security of per
son and property, and for religious
opinion, in every part of our common
country, without regard to looaljvej-
udice." Eight years ago he accepted
tho responsibilities of President with
out fear, but now, in his "eighth and
last annual message," lie pleads igno-
ranco as an exouso for tho defects-
crimes perhaps of his administration.
Rofercnco to theso expressions of bin,
at this'timo, are of no importance ex
cept to ill ust rato how well ho has fol
lowed his own chart and to remiiu:
peoplo who have Imporleot memorie
how Grant of 18GG looks upon Grant
of 1876.
'Laws aro to govern all alike.
Does this explain why troops were
sent into South Carolina "to suppress
an insurrection too formidablo for
" Gov. Chamberlain to control"- whero
there there has bocn no disturbance
whatever, more than in Ohio or any
other State ? Or if troops wcro noo
essary in South Carolina "to suppress
the majority of tho pcoplo, in that
State and to provent Chamberlain, bo
ing driven into rofuge. docs that
prove that troops were necessary in
Florida or Louisiana to insure "a fair
count" whero thoro was no "iusur
rection ?" Did Grant act "without
prejudice, hate or sectional pride"
when he sent troops into thoso State
to uphold a set of miscreants, who, he
asserts, would have become refugees
"as Governor Ames is now from Mis
sissippi Y Was it "tho greatest goo
to the greatest number" to uphol
Chamberlain, Kellogg and Stearns
against a majority of tho people in
their respective States ? Is it for the
"greatest good to tho greatest num
bcr" that he concentrates his army in
Washington to "KuKlux," "Intimi
date" and "Bull doso" Congress and
the Democratic party, and thus in
augurato Hayes contrary to the votes
of a majority of tho States, tho peo
ple and the electoral college ? "Gov.
Hayes carried all Ipl four of the
States which furnished tho means of
suppressing tho rebellion j Gov. Til
den carried all but three of those
which sought to destroy the Union,"
thus talks Grant to the reporter
prejudice, hate and sectional pride,"
as every reader miy know, have been
the watch words and battle-cries of
Grant and Lis party for the past fif
teen years; and as the New York
Times is the organ, Morton the hih
priest and Grant the mouthpiece of
i-t i2EL'!:C,, r" v- Ihwr air
and tones harmonize elegantly and all
begin and end with tho "late rebell
ion" and its conseqaence. All of
Grant's political knowledgo and views
originated in the rebellion, and know
ing his ignorance of political matters,
the Republican leaders have sung
"bloody shirt" to him till he seems to
think that tho past is completely ob
literated and the future of tho coun
try dependent upon the relations of
sections and parties during the rebell
ion. No repentance, no atonement,
no humiliation, no subjugation, no
oppression,no military usurpation and
no Returning JJoards, in his estima
tion, however well they may count,
can suppress the spirit of insurrection
in tho South. That spirit of reb Hi n
haunts him for he is taught by his
taught by his advisers that it. is a
slumbering volcano, a giant in repose,
only kept at restl by his military
demonstrations. Nor is Grant singu
lar in this belief, lor the peoplo .too,
havo been taught during tho past fif
teen years that a corporal's sword is
more potent than the law of the land,
and the average Radical thinks that
without military interference no one,
particularly a'negro or Republican,
would be safe anywhere in the States
"lately in rebellion." And, following
their leaders, they believe to-day that
Grant would be justified in inaugu
rating Hayes by force, to prevent tho
country from coming u U r tho en
trol of thoso "lately in r. VHion" or
thoso who opposo the Radical party
in its career of fraud, force, crimo and
sectional fanaticism. ,
Grunt is not ranch above the iverage man
In consistency; he keeps his troops trotting
around In'thu South ', hunting jlead negroes
and the ghost of s defunct rebellion, yot he
tays tbatj Northern Democrats are, worse
than rebels, or, "that he would rather trut
the rebels than their northern allies." Then
we might expect' to.see taistroops after the
"allies" at no distant day, if Urantisin should
be perpetrated. But Urant only saya this
to please Morton, Logan, Oarfk-ld and others
of the North, who hive been beaten in the
recent elections and who, of course, hate
their opponents at home more than those at
a distance.
If the troops now in Washington should
oust Congress and declare Iluyei President
without the fornialities'of counting " bim in,
would the people submit to such an outrage?
Yes, the Republicans would approve, those
"lutoly In rebellion" would uui otjut rot f
of lbs renewed chargo of "treason againBt
the government" and the rank faml file of
Demooracy would denounce the (outrage in
long-wlndod resolutions andjherojt would
The Whisky Hlug riiu.
From the first the Rings have been anx
ious to got Hayes in. Their first attempt
was to vote him In; the last to count him in.
They Tailed at the first, im1 now they begin
to see that they are likely to fail In tho sec
ond. The third plan is to filibuster bim in.
That is to say, tho Senate Is to talk against
timo, (torn the second Wednesday in Febru
ary until the fourth of March, when the new
House comes Into being. This new House
Is to be culled together by the President,
and ibo Republicans claiming to'control
majority of the State will elect Gov. Hayes,
President This is the plan now avowed
with some thin veil of words, by W. M
Grosvenor, editor of the Ntv York Pubhe.
Of Mr. Grosvenor himself, It is scarcely ncc
easary to say more than that the evidence
adduced in the whisky trials at St. Lima,
showed him to have received money from
membors of the Ring, while an editor there
anJ the only answer be could make was, that
be had given his note lor the money and
expected to pay It! The Nation made the
caustio remark about this, that it showed
bow unfortunate it was "for Reformers to
have relations with Rings I"
It is difficult to conceive of a more dan
gerous or dishonest scheme. It simply
means that the R 'publicans failing in every
other mode of retting the Presidency, shall
steal it by parliamentary filibustering. If
dor. Hayes should gain the Presidency in
this way, would there evor after be any se
curity or certainty about an fclection. Five
times during the last nine Preaideutial elec
t ons, the Houses which were to tount the
irt'ctoral vote have bees of opposite politics.
Has it ever been proposed before that eith r
of them should, by hiibustering, reverse the
verdict of the people whin it did not suit
them T If this should be done once, have wt
any guarantee tbae it will sot be dooe agalaf
Oar Government will then be at the mercy
of either House of Congress which chooses
to cheat the people out of their right. This
idea is about as valuable to society as the in
ventioo of a new burglars' jimmy, or of i
new style or brass knuckles would be. It
mply adds one to the oiany known meth
ods of political rascality. We wish Mr.
Grosvenor and his Ring joy of hi scheme.
The Springfield Republican observes that
ndry Radical organs, which were stupid
enough to hake the tgnm in General Bar
low's first letter ou Florida to add op a
majority for Hay, neglect any allusion to
his explanatory note, which shows bow be
would have counted the State forTilden in
any event, while, if one precinct were count
e I, which be think u incorrectly cut out,
TJJeo's majority woJIJ be between, one and
tao aundrsd.
- The Eighth r January.
The Democrats of Salem bad an enthusi
astic meeting oo Monday and adopted the
following resolutions:
Whereas, A condition of affairs has aris
en which threatens seriously to try the sta
bility of our republican institutions, and
which by a quiet submission to fraud, prac
tically under pretended lorn, of law, may
criminate io placing in the Presidential chair
a man who would owe bis position to a dis
regard of justice and the spirit of the law;
io the establishment of a precedent by which
a party once in power may forever perpetu
ate itself, and lbu make elections a larce
and government the master instead of the
reflex of the will of the people: or tbroueh
rashness may result in revolution, the end of
which would be but little less disastrous; and
Whereas, The people of the United States,
by a majority of over three hundred thous
and votes, have indicated Samuel J. Tilden
as their choice for President and Thomas
A. Hendricks for Vice President; and
Whereas, It is our firm conviction fbat
they have received a majority of the electoral
votes legally cast for such officers therefore,
Resolved. That while for the rake o!
peace and the love we bear our country we
are ready to sacrifice all doubtful rights
and to acquiesce in a wrong perpetrated
through the recognized forms of law, we re
gard a servile submission to arbitrary aod
false declurution of the result of the Presi
dential contest, attained through usurped au
thority, as oo less dangerous to the welfare
of our country and the perpetuity of our
free institutions than the dire consequences
of armed resistance and consequent civil
Resolved, That while we deprecate all ap
peals to the passions, prejudices or the spir
it of resentment, and favor moderation in
council, we equally fnvor firmness io action
and determined resistance to every species
of usurpation or fraud.
Resolved. That, we solemnly protest in
the name of civil liberty, the legally express
ed will of the people and the Constitution
and laws of our country, against the inaugu
ration of Rutherford li. Hayes is President
and William A. Wheeler as Vice President
of these United Slates.
Resolved, That threatened attempt to pre
vent the House of Representatives of Con
gress from exercising Ibe rigbtto participate
in the counting of the electoral votes and
of having a voice in declaring the result a
right which has belonged to it since the
foundation of the government, end vhich is
attested by Humorous precedents is a
threat of revolution and a menace aguinst
civil liberty; that the success of such an at
tempt would subvert our constitutional gov
ernment and establish the rule of a mob; that
we appeal to our fellow citizens of all par
ties, to their love of constitutional govern
ment, hallowed by (be traditions of a glori
ous past, to their sense or justice and of
duty, to that justifiable pride of American
citizenship by which they are distinguished,
to resist as a Bocred duty this revolutionary
attempt npon our government and our liner
ties with all the means known to a law abid
ing and liberty-loving people.
Resolved, That we regard the action of
Governor Grover and Secretary Cbadwick
io refusing to issue a certificate of election
to J. W. Watts and granting the same to
E. A. Cromn, as giving effect to the will of
tbe people, legally and constitutionally ex
pressed, and as tbe result of their obligations
io nuiuu uy ana ruiihrully exocats lue Con
stitution and laws of our country and a con
scientious regard for their oaths of office.

A large number of prominent Democrats
representing nearly every county in the State
met in Moutpelier, Vermont, with the State

The Richmond Times says: t
A meeting of the citizens of Richmond and
all citizens of Virginia in the city was held
to-night in tbe house of delegates to consid
er tbe issues involved snd tbe solution of
tbe Presidential controversy, and to adopt
resolutions giviug assurance to the country
thut Virginia is loyal and true to the Union
and constitution. Ex U. S. Senator R. M.
'I'. Hunter presided, and tbe meeting was
participated in by a large number of leading
representative men from all parts of tbe
State. Resolutions were adopted declaring
that the complications that have arisen
have been caused by illegal and fraudulent
practices of returning boards ; that the ouly
mode of extrication from tbe presentdangers
is by a firm adherence to the principles ol
the constitution and observance of long es
tablished precedents ; the right, .'o count the
vote and to determine tbe validity of any
vote rested in tbe two houses of 'Congress ;
that they are empowered to pass all laws
and rules necessary to carry tbe granted
power into effect: that should tbe two
'iisos bo unable to agree upon the mode ol
procedure, and declare neither of the candi
dates has been constitutionally elected, it
suaii oe toe duty or the House of Represen
tatives to elect a Presidont from tbe three
candidates having the highest vote; that
the constitution coolers oo power npon tho
President ol th Senate to count the electo
ral vote, and requires him simply, in the
" '"1 ' , to open all the
tes ; tnat tne power to count all vot
veryet been claimed hj any previous Pre
"I ol the Senate ; thul the claim "t-
cised by tbe returning bouiJof sundry States
io manipulate tne vote or their fellow citi
zens is without law, and places the liberties
oi tne people at the mercy rf partisan an
corrupt organizations. The last resolution
calls upon the legislature of tbe States to de
clare i i-tukable language the
sentiments of their constituents."
