Air. Greeley has been represent
ed by the opponents of his election
as a weak and vaseiflating person,
without force of character, or per
sistence in any fixed line of policy.
How long since lie adopted the
principle of clasping hands across
t lie bloody chasm,' the language of
the letter in which he, rive years
ago replied to the New York'Chtb
that threatened him with expulsion
when he signed the Jefferson Davis
bail bond, and which to da'y we re
produce below, abundantly proves;
and with what consistency and
manliness lie has for six years fol
lowing maintained the lofty ground
then assumed, his present position
as the champion of ideas and prin
ciples then enunciated, is evidence
enough. The following is the let-
T3 C"5
Gentlemen: I shall not 'attend
your meeting this evening. I have
an engagement out of town, and
shall keep it. I do iKt recognize
as capable of judging, or even fully
apprehending me. You evidently
regard me as a weak sentimentalist,
misled b- a maudlin philosophy.
I arraign you as narrow-minded
blockheads, who would like to be
useful to a irreat and good cause,
but don't know how. Your at
tempts to bast a great, enduring
party on the hale and wrath neces
sarily engendered by a bloody civil
war, is as though you should plant
a colony on an iceberg which had
somehow drifted into a trooieal
ocean. I tell you here that out of
a life earnestly devoted to the good
ot' human kind, your children will
select mv going to Richmond and
signing that bail bond as the wisest
act, .and will fool that it did more
for freedom and humanity than all
of you worn competent to do,
though you lived to the age of Me
thuselah. I ask nothing of you,
then, but that you proceed to your
end by a direct, frank, manly way.
Don't sidle oil in a mini resolution
of censure, but. move the expulsion
which I deserve, if I deserve any
reproach whatever. All I care for
is that yen make this a square
stand up light, and record your
judgment by eas arid nays. 1
care not how few vote with me, or
how many vote against me; for I
know that the hitler will repent it
in dust and ashes before three years
are passed.
Understand, once for .'ill, that I
dare you and defy you, and that 1
propose to light it out on the line
that I have he! I from the day of
Lee's surrender. So long as any
man was set-king to over throw our
Government, he was my enemy;
from the hour in which he laid down
his arms, he was my formerly err
ing count ry man. So long as any
is opposed to the national unity,
the Federal authority, or to that
assertion of the equal lights of all
men which has become practically
identified with loyalty and national
ity, I shall do my best lo deprive
him ot power; but when lie ceases
to do thus, 1 demand his restora
tion to till the privileges of Ameri
can citizenship. I give you fair
notice that I shall urge the re-en-frai'.ehisemont
of those now pro
scribed for rebellion so soon as 1
shall feel confident that this course
is consistent with the freedom of
the blacks and the unity of the He
public, and that I shall demand a
recall of all now in exile only for
participating in the rebellion, when
ever the country shall have been so
thoroughly pacified that its pafety
will not thereby be endangered.
And so, gentlemen, hoping that
you will henceforth comprehend
me somewhat better than you have
done, I remain, yours,
JloncE Greeley.
Four or live times in our history
affairs have become ?o bad in the
National Government that public
opinion has demanded a change al
most irrespective of what was to
follow, for the people felt that
scarcely any policy could fail to be
an improvement on the existing
order of things. So it is now.
Grant and his surroundings and
tendencies, and the agencies
through which he aims to keep
himself ami his familiars in power,
have become intolerable. His sup
porters eannot frighten the people
from their purpose to turn him out
by predictions of "gorgons and
chimeras dire" under the rule of
Dr. Greoky. They are determined
to be rid of the Galena Gift -Taker
ami stand their chances tinder the
benign sway of the Chappaqua

Thinking a few lines from the
swamps of Arkansas might not be
amiss I have concluded to give you
a little sketch of times down in the
cotton region of Arkansas. Cot
tost erops are hardly an average,
owing to too much rain and'eool
weather in the spring and too much
politics and bad whiskey later in
the season. Our colored citizens
are almost J'un wihl over politics.
They have political gatherings day
and night. It is worse than folly
to think that anv of the negroes
will vote lor Greeley. YVe have
two black candidates and one white
candidate lor the legislature. 'Our
black candidates are Grant men,
of course. Of the white candidate
I know nothing more than that he
is a whiskey dealer and a poet, at
1 Coonskin block. Laconia.
And I can truly say he is Laconia's
greatest poet, and better qualified
for a poet than a legislator. I have
heard but one speech from our sa
ble candidate. The following,
which is a verbatim report ot his
speech of the character of politics
preached .as will as the oratorical
lowers of our gorilla statesman:
I rise to tell you dat I am a can
didate for de legislator. My spo
il eu-t, Sam Harrison, savs I ain't
til to go to tie legislate!-, dat I is
got no sense. Put I is got more
sense den he is. T has been specch
in for myself now 'bout free weeks,
and I has got my sponent , Sam
Harrison, 'bout, run off de track.
He don't 'mount to ahiil ob beans
no way, and he han't no combilica
no how, and darlbre I shall use all
my eonihilica from dis time forth
for Grant.
Grant is gis bout as good a elec
ted all ready. All the culled men
will vote lor Grant, be last one ob
tlei.'i. I would like to see tie eulied
gemmati dat would vote for old
Greeley, dat old rebel Democrat
dat wants to put us back into slave

The Know-otiiii! Oatii taken by the
Hon. Henry Wilson in 185-!.
To the JIUtor f The Sn.
Sin : I have received from Gen.
Uenningsen a copy of the oath
taken by the Hon. Henry YVilson
in the fall of 1851 in Boston.
Here it is :
In the presence of the true ami
ever-living God, and on his Sacred
Scriptures, His holy word. I do
declare that I will truly fulfill all
my obligations toward my breth
ren of the order of Know-Nothings,
and that I will keep sacred
all the signs, tokens, pass, and de
gree words, grips, emblems, and
proceedings, ccc. And I further
declare, ami solemnly swear, that
I will not knowingly vote for, ap
point or elect any person of for
eign birth, or a Homan Catholic,
to any oHiee in the local or general
administration of the American
Government. And I further de
clare and swear, that I will roe all
the means in my power to counter
act and destroy the influence of
foreigners and Homan Catholics
in the administration of the Gov
ernment of the United Slates, ami
in any and parts thereof, local and
and general. To all this a free and
voluntary obligation on my part,
without teservalion I may ever be
able to remain true and steadfast,
so litl j me God.
According to the Massachusetts
formula of that time, the President
of the lodge where the oath, was
taken said the following in his ad
dress to those who took it, pre
vious to their doing so.
As a member of this patriotic
lodge it will become you to disre
gard all pesonal interests and pre

country, in order that the corrupt

may be elfectuaHy combated and
destroyed, and here it will be un

Fr ru- tl e Chicago Tribune.
Some excitement lias sprung up
in the Hishop Hill Colony of
Swedes in Ilenrv County, 111., over
a discovery made by them that
certain hinds, which they supposed
they owned, on the outskirts of
the City of Chicago (eighty acres,
more or less), had been conveyed
by one of the trustees of said Col
ony without their authority to J.
Uussel Jones, United States Minis
ter to Belgium, for an. inadequate
compensation. The colony a short
time since, employed a lawyer to
make an investigation, but, in con
sequence of the destruction of the
public records by lire, he made
slow progress. Finally, he ascer
tained (and this was an accidental
discovery) that, some time after the
conveyance of the land by Oiof
Johnson, the trustee, to Jones
which was on the i29th of Decern
ber, lSGo Jones conveyed a por
tion of it, described below, to
Ulysses S. Grant, of "Washington,
D. C., for the consideration of -M,
on the 20th of May, 1SG9, and was
immediately thereafter appointed
Minister to Belgium. The descrip
tion of the land conveyed by Jones
to Grant is as follows: "An undivid
ed 1 of the Y. of the N W. of
the N F. I of section 15, town
range 15, containing '20 acres, more
or less; also an undivided h of the
YV. f. of the SY. j of the" N K. j
of said section 15, containing 20
acres, more or less ; also, and un
divided .! of that patt ol the V,
, of the W. of the SF. of said
section 15, which lies north of the
road known as the Parry Point
road, containing 11 acres and a
fraction ; also, an undivided of
the S. 42 acres of the K I of the
SW. of said section 15, in the
County of Cook and State of Illi
nois ; consideration 1.' The
deed recites that this propeity had
been held in trust by Jones for
Grant; but no such trust was
shown of record
ami it is noted
that Mr:
Jones reliuouishes dow
er, whereas she could 'have no
dower in property held in trust by
husband. The Bishop Hill
C ilon
claim that this property
belongs to thent, and they have
presented a formal request to Pres
ident ( -I rant to convey it back to
them, to which no response has vet
been returned". -V further investi
gation will probably show that this
property belongs to the Bishop Hill
Colon v, and that a court of equity
will so decree. That after Jones
bought it he concluded, to let Grant
into the speculation, and drew on
him for a portion ot tne purenast:-
money; tliat lie soni a pari
.i i i i . ...
ot it
a short time beiore he was ap
pointed Minister to Belgium, and
remitted to Grant .si 1,000 as his
share of the purchase 'of this sal",
and ma.de him a deed, for the re
mainder of the land. If the Bish
op Hill Colony are swindled, sve
judge that Grant was not know
'ing"to that fact. YVe judge, also,
that tin? profits of the speculation
had considerable influence on the
President's mind when he designa
ted Jones as Minister to Belgium,
for there has not been a more unfit
appointment made since Columbus
discov e red A m e ric a.
"While the people of the United
Stales are making preparations to
celebrate cn the 4th of July, 1870,
the one hundredth anniversary of
American Independence, the Nor
wegians all over the world, on the
18t h of July, of the present, year
celebrated the one thousandth an
niversary of the consolidation of
that country. The ceremonies in
Norway were, many of them, of an
imposing character. Perhaps 'the
most noteworthy of these was the
unveiling of a monument seventy
feet high to the memory of King
Harold Fairhair, which took place
at Haugesund on the spot where
tradition savs King Harold was
buried. The story of King Harold
is this: In the ninth century Nor
way was divided into twenty-four
pott v kingdoms. Harold, who rul
ed over one of them, asked the
hand o f G i t h a , the d ati gl 1 1 or o fan
other petty prince. He received
for rcp.lv this t when he had con
quered all Norway Githa should
be his. Not at all daunted by this
onerous condition, Harold prompt
ly went to work and brought king
dom after kingdom under his rirle,
completing his undertaking by
means of a bloody sea light, which
occurred in 872, after which his
sovereignty over the whole of Nor
way was acknowledged. Harold
was an unscrupulous tyrant, and
drove mauv horsemen to emigrate
- T"
to other countries in order to escape
his intolerable oppressions; but his
name is cherished in Norway be
cause he first established the nation
al unity.

Ilessember Steel.
We k'.arn from the St. Louis
limes that a first-class furnace lias
been erected at Caromleiet for the
purpose of making steel by the
Bessemer process. Its proprietors,
Garrison, Chouteau fc Hart, experi
enced iron masters, expect to manu
facture from Missouri ore about six
hundred tons per wu-k. St. Louis
requires a large amount of steel rails
to supply the wear and tear on her
lines of transportation and for new
lines in progress of construction.
The question is now being dis--cussed
whether the Nes-Silicon pro
cess of making steel is not cheaper
in juice and superior in quality to
the Bessemer process. In a recent
article we gave the statements of
several manufactures substantia
ting the advantages of the Ameri
can over the English process.
Thousands of tons of Silicon steel
rails have beeii tried under the most
unfavorable circumstances, and
t heir superiority over those made
by the Bessemer process has been
conclusively established. They re
sisted cold and frost and severo
pounding by rapidiy driven trains,
without breaking or lamination.
Steel can be made by the new proc
ess at a cost of one cent per
pound. In cutlery of the finest
description and tools requiring tem
per and hardness, the Silicon steel
gave bettor results than could be
obtained from any steel heretofore
The consumption of iron and
sleel rails in the United States is
increasing so rapidly that we must
manufacture them tit home by new
and improved processes. The cost
of freight must be put in labor to
make a better article, for England
can-not supply our requirement un
less at greatly enehanced prices.
In 1870 the consumption of iron
and sfeel rails was 53o,5 7l tons; in
1S71 the demand reached G92.01S,
and every succeeding year will
show an enormous increase. The
narrow gauge road in time will oe
cupy a portion of the county roads
between the towns ami villages.
Cheat) iron will ensure cheap con
struction and cheap transportation.
Missouri, so rich in iron ore, will lie
the great centre of production-for
the Mississippi valley ami the Pa
cific Coast, and the sfeel rails uni
ting San Francisco and St. Louis
will probalv be made in the furna-
cos of the latter.

llhn Out:
Grant depends for his reelection
upon three of the most demorali
zing and dangerous kinds of influ
ences over employed in a political
contest, His chief agencies are a
profuse expenditure of money, the
unscrupulous exertions ol an army
of oiiiceholders, and an organiza
tion which to a large extent i.
bound together by secret oaths.
The money mainly comes from the
National Treasury and the enforced
contributions of G rant's beneficia
ries. The officeholders, found in
every hamlet of the country, and
wielding an immense power over !
the people, neglect their proper
business and attend to polities, be
cause they know that their chance
for feeding at the public crib four
vears longer rests solely in the suc
cess of their patron at the "White
House. In all the Southern States
hundreds of thousands of excitable
negroes are bound to promote the
reelection of Grant under oaths and
imprecations which fetter their own
consciences and are at war with re
publican institutions, while secret
leagues of white voters having the
same objects in view widely pre
vail in the Northern and "Western
If there were no other reasons
for the overthrow of Grant's Ad
ministration, the three above stated
would amply justify a change.
In their corrupting influences and
dangerous tendencies they far ox

ministrations of John Quincy Adam:-.,

which the people, regardless of par
ty ties, lose up against and over
