Un~y eta Abolition that caused the Dcm- morc vital support of thc~'*dram-sn8$', and it would be left dead—stone dead. Surely, not one step should be taken toward reviving such a party. Surely, the good men who are so unfortunate as to be in it (no good men can be of it) should hasten to break it lip by withdrawing from it. For thirty years before the rebellion the abolitionists were working for the overthrow of slavery. They* could make but little headway, however, against the Democratic party. In the eyes of this party these self-sacrificing philanthropists and patriots were fit only to be mobbed and murdered.— Certainly, there should not be one lin­ ger to help to lift up this party from prostration to power. The rebellion would never have broken out but for the encouragement this party gave it. It promised the rebels 50,000 armed allies from the city of New York alone. It promised through ex-Presidcnt Pierce in his let­ ter to Jefferson Davis, that “ the light­ ing will not be along Mason and Dix­ on’s line merely. It will be within our own borders, in our streets, be­ tween the two classes #o f — meaning tiic Abolitionists and their pro-slavery or Democratic neighbors. It opposed with tire and slaughter, as in the instance of the riot in New York in 1863, the drafting of men to till up our decimated armies. During the whole of the rebellion the sympa­ thies of this treasonable party were ever with the South and Slavery. It never rejoiced in our victories, but always in our dofeat. The National Democratic Convention held in Charleston in 1860 was openly and shamelessly for slavery. No speaker in it was so vociferously welcomed as W. 13.

JA9. D. M organ , Sec’y. Penn Yan, Oct. 9,1874. Gerrit Smith on the Democraic Party, Frequently do I hear and read that, inasmuch as each o f the two great parties has nominated a worthy man for Gov­ ernor, the people have now nothing to fear from the election of a Governor.— That General Dix is worthy of the of­ fice doc3 not need to be argued. Nor should it be doubted that Mr. Tilden, whoso discernment and bravery were so efficient in ferreting out those stupend­ ous and matchless frauds in the city of New York, has in himself the qualifi­ cations for Governor. Too much praise in this important work cannot be awarded to him, nor to that emi­ nently intellectual and just man, Charles O’Conor, nor to The New York Times. I admitted that Mr. Tilden has in. himself the qualifications for this high office. But, so far from his having them in his party also, ho ha9 there only absolute and fatal disqualifica­ tions for it. Were he the Republican candidate, - his . party -Aiuali/icafcioua would be as ample as his personal.— But he is the Democratic candidate, and hence, however great or even un­ equalled might be his personal merits, he is on the side that has no right to win. Every vote for Mr. Tilden is a of vote for the restoration of the Demo­ cratic Party to power; and no one who dreads as lie should do such restora­ tion can consistently cast such a vote. Mr. Greeley was a great and good man, but because his election would have gone far to reinstate the Democratic Party, so those who dreaded such rein­ statement could not vote for him. It is a shallow conclusion that we must invariably vote for the best man among the candidates. The best man is the worst man to vote for if he is bound up in the worst party. For many years I went over the country arg uing that, as slavery could not much longer withstand the pro­ gress of civilization, it must necessarily, unless speedily disposed o f by political action, go out in blood. Nor did I fail to predict this in Congress. But that my limbs and voice are enfeebled by age, 1 would now go over the coun­ try again—and this time with a mess­ age not less important, but far more important, than any former one. I would say to my hearers that cither the nation or the Democratic party must soon break up ; and would say this because the nation cannot much longer hold out under the war which this party continues to make upon its peace and safety aud upon all its high­ est and holiest interests. The Democratic party, organized by - our fathers, was a good one. It went at least in theory, and with the honest purpose of a speedy corresponding practice, for the equal rights of all men. It maintained its honor and its usefulness, until in an evil hour it was tempted to increase its votes and power by taking slavery under its wing. And now, for more than half a century, this slavery-transformed par­ ty has not ceased to pour out upon the ^country it has cursod its demoralizing destructive influences. In fasten- may ^ x much applauded boast was that lie rep­ resented “ the African slave-trade in­ terest.” The National Convention of this party in 1864 sunk down to the very depths of treason by resolving and publishing, in the midst o f the re­ bellion, to our enemy and the world, that our resistance to it had proved a i “ failure,” and should be given up, and peace sought for in its stead. It was then and there that this party under­ took to oust our beloved Lincoln by nominating Gen. McClellan. I admit that this gentleman, whose record is by no means wholly blameworthy, honest­ ly aimed to preserve the Union—but too evidently lie would preserve slavery along with it. An instance of this is to be found in the proclamation with which he entered Virginia. In that he threatened to put down servile in­ surrections “ with an iron hand.” He aimed rather to comfort than to con­ quer her. He studied the security o f her homes, rather than suffer them to be desolated. Gen. McClellan was less a Northern commander than a mediator between the North and the South. Here and thcro were thorough “ War Democrats,” and they were worthy o f all honor for standing out from the mass of their party. But O cm. lloOU llfti^TrAo o n e o f Had he been he would not have been nominated for the Presidency. The Convention, which “ yelled assent” to the words of Judge Miller, of Ohio, would not have nominated a thorough “ War Democrat.” Said the Judge: “ There is no real difference between a War Democrat and an Abolitionst.— They are links of the same sausage, made out o f the same dog.” We pass on to the National Demo­ cratic Convention of the year 1868.— Gen. Blair, having been much spoken of as one of its probable candidates, wrote a letter to Col. Brodhead four days before the Convention was held. In that letter he goes for revolutioniz­ ing the politics of the country by force of arms, and he closes his bloody let­ ter by saying: “ I wish to stand before the Convention upon this issue.” Ilis letter won the hearts o f the Convention, and it promptly put him in nomina­ tion for Vice President. In the light of these illustrations (only few of many) of the bad conduct and worse characters o f the Democratic party, how can we with a good con­ science help to call it into power again ? Just here, let me say that our suc­ cess in overcoming the rebllion, with the whole South and the Democratic half o f the North against us, may well be “ marvelous in our eyes.” Well, too, may we say: “ I f it had not been the Lord was on our side, when men rose up against us, then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled agaiust us.” By the way, the rebellion is wrongly call­ ed the “ Slaveholders’ rebellion.” It was more comprehensive than that.— It was the rebellion oflthe Democratic party, and should be called the “ Dem­ ocratic Rebellion.” Scarcely was the war over before Southern-cut-throats proceeded, in the spirit and expected protection of the Democratic party-,- ta~-jorgaiijzo their Kuklux Klans. They whipped and shot and hung both black and white Republicans in nearly all the former slave States. They were as ready to shoot white men as black men, if only they were Republicans. Poor Louis­ iana has suffered more from theso Ku­ klux devils thauhas any other State. Her victims in 1866 numbered 2,000. It was in this year that the Democratic mob in New Orleans murdered the noble Dosty and a hundred others, simply because they presumed to hold a Re­ publican Convention. By the way Dosty once resided Jn our county of 'Madison. In 1868 also, somo 2,000 more in Louisiana were killed or wouuded by these Kuklux devils. I said that the war was over. In point of fact it was not over; nor is yet over; nor will it ever be over, un­ til the Democratic party is dead. Its savage and wicked spirit is too chronic to admit of change. It is as unchange­ able as the skin of the Ethiopian or the spots of the leopard. Only at the death o f this party will the evil spirit that has dwelt in it and inspired it for half a century go out o f it. In 1873 a hundred colored men were murdered at one time in Grant Parish iu Louisiana; and now, within the last few weeks, the work of murder has been renewed iu several parts of this ill-starred State. Iu New Orleans alone not less than a hundred^ were killed outright or very seriously wounded. This recent outbreak of Democratic devilism in several Southern States is owing in part to the encouragement which the Democrats have received from the last elections iu Connecticut and New Hampshire. It is owing, however, in greater part to the hope in these States that, by flattering Gen. Grant with the prospect of a third term, they would thereby purchase his forbarance and his permission to continue - their slaughter ot black and white Republicans. When I saw their disappointment, and that the vigilant and faithful Government had scarcclj7 let five davs pass ere placing a suffic­ ient number of United States troops in New Orleans, and monitors to rake, when nccessarv, some ot her principal streets, I felt that, in Bible language, our great soldier had come to.the Presidency, “ for such a time as this..’ Moreover, and again in Bible language, I was ready to exclaim : “ O, King, live forever I ” I readily admit that in all but very extraordinary times two terms .of the Presidency are enough for any, even the best, man ; but when there ’is a war to be pul flown, and es­ pecially such a treasonable and infernal ono as this, which the Democratic par- iuumvj.o-w i<vw.ii 2 c, if we arc so tor- our head, it is wise to keep\ hiftrYHGJit The South wauled Grant because she took it into her head that he would tolerate her high crimes against hu­ manity. ^ She now needs him to stop and punish these high crimes. In re­ spect to these crimes the Democratic press is either silent or apologetic.— The South excuses them on the ground, both that Republicans have not got into office by fair means, and that Republicans, especially if colored men, are not eligible to office. Frauds, whether practiced by Democrats or Re­ publicans, arc not to be defended, but the shedding o f blood is surely not the remedy for them. It is true that slavery was once the great curse of the country, but for the last fifty years the Democratic party has been its far greater curse. In all this time slavery has been as much less to be dreaded tnan the Democratic par­ ty as is the sword less to be dreaded than the hand that wields it. Easily would the advancing civilization of Christendom have disposed of slavery had not this bad party clung to it as — . i _ j i t s c h i e f m e n u s o f j ^ o r p e t u n t i n g ’ i t s e l f . Slavery and rum were its life, and to this day its life is very largely in its hope that slavery will reappear, or that some scarcely less advantageous modification of it will take its place. My old temperance friends complain that I do not.advocate a temperance ticket. Whenever thcro is danger of the Democratic party coming again in­ to power, as there was in 1872, when it cunningly nominated Greeley to catch reformers with, and as there is now, when, with hands dipped afresh in the blood of Southern Republicans, it is moving earth and hell to regain its lost ascendancy, my first duty—nay, my only political duty—is to oppose thc-Democratic party. This abomina­ ble party is the murderer of the color­ ed race, which my guilty country has so deeply wronged; and I would let all men become drunkards ere I would, directly or indirectly, join this mur­ derer. Although the Republican party is, as compared with the Democratic par­ ty “ Hyperion to a Satyr,” there is nevertheless, somewhat in it to regret and be ashamed of. If this good party shall ever fall into a minority it will be because o f its cowardice, and especial­ ly its cowardice in not passing the Civil Rights bill. Had it with the face hold face of promptly passed ed only so few Democratic vote conscious . rectitude, this bill, which lack- votes, though every was against it, these recent murders at the South would not have been entered upon. This wavering in the fidelity of Republi­ cans to their righteous principles has its worst effect in encouraging the Democratic party to fresh expressions of its wickedness. Can our poor col­ ored brethren, forgive this wavering, this cruel injustice, this stinging in­ gratitude ? I trust they can, and will be persuaded that, after one more tri- umiihant.election/this good,but not yet g v v u — en u t fg fr, enough courage to subdue its faint­ heartedness and enough integrity to overcome its truckling, will hasten to accord equal rights to the colored man. Let me here repeat what I have so often said, that the excuse offered by some Republicans for the failure of this bill—the excuse that it would be contrary to law or congress to pass it—is as disgraceful as empty. Fudge for such a law, if there is such a law! They say that it must be left to the several States to provide for the maintenance of the colored man’s manhood. IIow contemptible is this skulking o f a great nation behind one of its States! It was the nation that was responsible for the long and weary years of the colored man’s enslavement. It was to save the nation that he so forgivingly and magnanimously entered iiito the nation’s army. It is the nation, there­ fore, that is bound to see that within all its limits he is treated as a man. Agaiust inborn human rights “ there is no law.” No law-book can make or unmake them. The law, written so legibly upon man’s sublime being, is the only law by.which to ascertain these rights; and both judges and leg­ islators are guilty of blasphemous aud imprudent atheism when they would supersede this divine law by human enactments. The question whether a colored child may enter the common schools or whether a colored man or woman may enter the car or hotel on self-respecting terms, i9 to be answered not by quotations from constitutions or statutes, but by him who {i is no re­ specter ot persons,” and who “ hath made o f one blood all nations o f men,” I close with saying that there arc crimes too great to be Forgiven.' One of them is the crime of the political party that deliberately upholds slavery, and another is the crime of the politi­ cal party that turns against its coun­ try in. time of war. O f bolh~these atrocious crimes litis the Democratic party been emphatically and persist­ ently guilty. Hence, though it may ever so humbly seek our forgivness, we have a two-fold reason, for with­ holding it. I have not mentioned by name the negro-murdering “ White Leaguers.”— Like the Kuklux ^outlaws, they are simply Democrats. Beth arc fired with the spirits and aims of tBe Dem­ ocracy, and “ it is set on fire of hell.” G errit S mith . P eterboko , Oct. 1, 1874.
