Carondklbt P. J. ' l
St. lovu, Mo., Dec. 28, 1876.
My Dear Gexehal: Your favor of
the 4th instant reached me ia Slew York
on the 5th, the day before I left for the
V it I intended to reply to it before
leaving, but cares incident to departure
mtertered. Then airain. ainoA mv
rival here-1 have beeu so oecunvrl if"h
personal affairs of a business nature that
I have deferred writing-from day todav
until this moment, and now I ...nnd my
self in debt to you another letter-in au
knowledgment of yourfavor of the 17th
received a few days since.
I have concluded to leave here on the
29th (to-morrow) P. M., so th.it I may
be expected in New York oh the 31st
instant. It hns been cold and dreary
since my arrival here. I have worked
"like a Turk" (I presume that means
hard work) in the country, in makii.g
fences, cutting down trees, repairing
buildings, etc.,' ani am at last able to
suy that St. Lui is the coldest place in
Winter, as it is the hottest in Summer,
of any that I have encountered in a
temperate zone. I have known St.
Louis in December to have gentle weath
er throughout the month; this Decem
ber it hat: been frigid, and the river has
been fmzen more solid than I have ever
known it. :
When I heard the rumor that I was
ordert d to the Pacific Coast I thought it
probably true, considering the past dis
cussion on tht subject, The possibili
ties seemed to me to point that wav.
Had it been true, I should, of course,
havo presented no complaint mr made
resistance ol" an v kind. I would have
gone quietly if not ptepaied to s.6 ide,,t ancl Seaate tJl Yice-Pres:-promptly,
I certiinlv would h:.vf bn. n ' tle't- i S"me -tribunal . roust decide
relieved roin any responsibilities ami
Which may fjill to those near the throne
or in authority within the next four
!iont!is, as well as from other incidents
or matters '-vhich. I could not control,
and the action Concerning w hich I could
not approve. I was ii;j es.icrly pre
pared to go the Pactiu, ho v. evr, and 1
therefore felt relieve I when I received
your note iuforpaing me that there was
no truth in the rumors.
Then, I did not wish to apjieftr to be
e. caping from responsibilities and possi
ble dangers which may cluster around
military commanders in the East, es
pecially in ihe critical period fast ap
proaching. All's well that ends well.
'Ihe whole matter of the Presidency
seems to me to be simple and to admit
of. a peaceful solution. . The machinery
for such a contingency as threatens to
present itself, has been all carefully pre
pared. It only requires lubrication,
owing to disuse. The army should have
nothing to do with the selection or in- j "iana but as ltle uiatter 1 can 1
auguration of President. The people ' 8efi an-v likelihood of his beir.z duly dc
clect the President. The Congress in a olare'1 sl't'd the people unless the
joint session declares who he is. We j Senatc aud Housc con,,: to j1 in accord
of" the army have only' to obey his man- as to that faut' and tb House would of
rl-a n.I urA i.rnt.rtorl in , ,lnin.T .lv ! course not otherwise elect him. What
so far as they may be lawful. Our cum
missions express that.
I LIKE JJ2FFE! SON'8 WAY
Of inauguration; it suits our system.
He rode alone on horseback to the Cap
itol (I fear it was the "old Capitol"),
tied his horse to a rail fence, entered
and was duly sworn, then rode to the
Executive Mansion and took posses
sion. j He inaugurated himself simply by i
takin the oath of office. There is no !
j other le'al lnaUCUratlOn in OUr
PU .r.' . r. i t. am mav nt
! r J i
parades in honor of the event, and pub.
lie ofheia'iS may add to the jngeant by
assembling troops ard banners, but all
tht oily come, properly after the in-auguratioB--not
before; and it is not &
part of it Our system does not pro
vide that one President should inaugu
rate another. There might be danger
in that, and it waa studiously left out of
the charter. But you. are placed in an
exceptionally important position iu con
nection with coming events. The cap
ital is in my jurisdiction also, but I am
subordinate, and not on the spot, and if
I were, so also would be my superior in
anthority, for there U this station' qf the
KO HOLD-OVER PaLSIDljSOT.
On the principle that a Tettlttiy
elected JPresident's term of ofEcfl expires
with the 3J of March (of which I have
not the slightest doubt), and which the
laws braring on the subject uniformly
recognize, and in consideration that the
possibility that the lawfully elected
J President may not appear until tho 5th
of , ftisrch, a great 'deal of responsibility
may necessarily fall upon iyau. You
hold over! You will have j power and
prestige to support you. The Secretary
of War, too, probably holds oer; but
if no President appear be may not be
able to exercihe functions in the naane of
a President for his proper acts are
those of x known superior a lawful
President. You act on your own re
sponsibility, and by virtue of a commis
sion only restrict-d by the law. The
Secretary of war is the mouthpiece of a
President. You are not. If neither
candidates has constitutional majority
of the Elt-ctoral College, or the Senate
and IIuu.se on the occasion of the count,
do not unite in declaring some persons
legally elected by the people, there is
lawful rn -.chinery already provided to
mei't th.n contingency and ; decide the
ques'icn. ) acefully. It has not been re
cently used, no occasion presenting it
belfyjbut our forefathers provided it. It
has teen exercised, and has been rrcog
nized and submitted to aa lawful on ev
ery llHIld, ' '
That machinery would probably elect
Mr. Tilden President and Mr. Wheeler
Vice-President. That would be right
enough, for the law provides that ia a
failure to elect duly by th people the
House shall immediately elect the Pros-
whether th?' people have elected it Presi
dent. I piesunic,' of course, that it is
in tho .joint affirmative action of the
House and the Senate, or why are they
present to witness the count if not to
see that it is fair and just? j If a failure
to agree arises between the two bodies
there con be no lawful affirmative decis
ion chat the people have elected'a Presi
d nt.and the House must then proceed
to act, not the Cenate. The Senate elects
Vice-Presidents, not Presidents. Doubt-
less in c isu of a failure by the House to
elect a President by the 4th of March,
the President of the Sei.ate (if there be
one) would be tho legitimate person to
exercise Presidential authority for the
time being or until the appearance of
the lawful President, or for the time laid
down by the Constitution. Such courses
would be peaceful, and, I have a firm be
lief, lawful. j
I have no dou'ot Governor Hayes
would make an excellent President. I
have met him and know of him. For a
brief period he served .under my corn-
t the DeoDle want is a nuaceful determin.
ation of this matter, as fair ja determina
tion as possible, and a lawf ul one. No
other ndininistration could stand the
test. The country if not plunged into
revolution would become poorer day by j
dav, business would languish, and our
bonds would couie home to find a depre
NOT IN FAVOR OF THE MILITARY ACT10X
IX SOUTH CAR0LISA RECENTLY,
nd l General Ruger. had telegraphed
r ,1,.:,, T ..-..nll 1,.,..
' or asked tor adMCe, X would -have
advised him not under any circuinstanctt
to himself or his troops to determine
who were the lawful members of the
State Letrislature. I eould not hav
given him better advice than to refer
him to the spex-ial message of the Presi
dent in the case of Louisiana some time
But in South Carolina he had had the
question settled by a decision of . the
Supreme 'Court of the State the high
est tribunal which had acted on the
question so that this line of duty
seemed to be clearer than in the Louisi
ana case. If the Federal Court had in-
1 . 1
terfered and overruled the decision of
the Supreme Cort there might have"
been a doubt certainly, but .the Federal
Court only interfered to cosuplic&'e
not to decide or overrule.
Anyhow it is no business of tho armv
to enter upon such questions, and evcu
if it might be so in any event, if - the
civil authority is supreme, & the Con
stitution declares it to b, the South
Carolina case was ove ia which thearicv.
had' a plain duty.
HAD GEXEU.U. EOEl ASKED U Wl
And if I had giroa it, I should of course
have notified you of my action imiueli
atel v, so that it could havelicen prompt
ly overruled if it should . have bear,
deemed advisable by you or other supe
rior authority. Qen. Ruger did not
ask far my advice, and I inferred from
that and other facts that he did. not de
sire it, or that, being in direct crfruuiu il
lation with my military superiors at
the seat of government, who were near
er to him in time and distance than I
was he deemed it necessary. As Gta.
Ruger had the ultimate responsibility oi
action and had really the great dtuiger
to confront in the final action in tho
matter, I did not venture to einbau-asa
him with suggestions. II wfts a de

direct communication with my s"priors
in authority in reference to the deltcats
subjects presented for hir. consideration,
or had ideas of his own which ho be
lieved to be sfcieutlv in acoord -witl

TIIE ARMV AXT THS tAWit,
As I have been writing th'is Iroely to
you, I may still further embosom my
self bv stating that I hav not thought
it lawful or wise to use federal troops in
such matters as Lave tra,nsDiredeast of
j the Mississippi within the 1 .nt few
months, save to far ai they may be
brought into action undor'tho article of
the Constitution, which contemplates
meeting armed resistance or invasion oi
a State more powerful than the Scate au

processes, and then only when requested

It matters sot to me what people mar
say of the wndrs that have astonished
the -world foe the fast nfty years, all I
ssojt is just this, the wonders xf tie 19th
"Centufy-tCCohej Utandf 'Ufa not many
years ago since a rido over the shell road
behind a fast stepper which would be
likely to excite some ambitious youth' in
to a lively brush, winding up with some
claims at Coney Island, and a light bever
age on the wiy home at Cinclair oi Van
Brunts, was all the inducement that
was held out by Coney Islanders. W hat
uo we sec to-dav, instead of a solitary
hotel of a very inferior order both of
architecture and .appointments we find
city, where every comfort as well as dis-.'
comforts can be found at prices to. suit.
Magnificent structuVtts -which vie with
metropolitan grandeur in external ap
pearances, arid which can furnish a meal
equal to Delmonico at cheaper figures.
The raia of the past two or three days
lias been a serious drawback to the en
joyments of such visitors as have found
it convenient to stay several consecutive
days, uut the opening of the week wtfS
delightful. Such a sight as Coney Istand
presented on Sunday la3t cannot be
equalled in any opinion on the face of
of the earth. It was estimated that at
least, 107,000 peoph; passed the" day in
tho enjoyment of the sea-breeze and iu
bathing, eating, wa.king on the sand,
inspecting thu great iron pier, and peer
ing over sea and laud from the iofty ob
servatory. With this vast crowd 'there
was a peaceful status that was not mar-
known as Nortons, and to this place in
former years came the stevuiboai to laden
with the b'hoys who wanted to give their
girls an airing and clain showder. At
the present time luit comparative few
people find their way to this locality
owing iu the main to the convenience of
the railroad depots to the portion of the
Island farther to the east. Next comes
West Wrighton where is situated Cable's
Hotel, the Sea beach palace, formerly
the government building at the Centen
nial Exhibition, the?. -great iron pier 1000
feet long and theihservatory 300 feet
high. Still further o the east is j Brigh
ton Beach where our host Eresliu of the
Gilsey House, JT. Y. and WilliardsHotel,
Washington reigns supreme. Then comes
Manhattan Beach which has Itoeu made
notorious by its ostracism of the Jewinh
fiater'mty, and the Oriental Hotel a new-
i and handsome V-ructure.'
Bet ween these
i mammoth institutions ere hundreds 6f;.
i miuor oues which may be designated u'ft-
,,,,. lue general title of Hotel do Clam,
, , . , ..ri-w-ir,,.! ulant which
they presei.t to the vivacious public.
There wai au exhibition of sea lions some
little time ago, but their majesties were
not satisfied with the accommodations
and so they sought more ccngenial climes,
much to the sorrow of the proprietor as
well as depletion of his treasury. One
would suppose to witness the efforts of a
lars" number of the visitors who throng
the restaurants that they had been de
prived of their rations as - long as the
groat American faster Dr. Tanner. The
scramble is first to get a table and some
chairs; these secured toe bill. of fare is
scrutinized until they really do not know
what to order,' and it is hnally determin
ed to (-all a waiter. Ah, here's, the rub,
Vociferous appeals are made on every
side to the individual who generally an
swers to the name of John whether it is
his name or not, 'Pew , minuses sir,"
is all that can be got, or a "right away"
is obtained. Finally it occur, to one of
the party that a quarter will woik won-den-,
