"As the campaign proceeds, the issue is seen to be joined, not between the
relative personal qualities of the candidates, but between the principles, history, and
spirit of the two great parties."-Harper's Weekly, Sept., 1880.

PUBLISHED BY THE
REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE,

WASHINGTON, D. c.

1880.

[blocks in formation]

Robert Toombs to a Friend in Washington.

From a Speech of Hon. Mr. Horr. "We of the North do not seek sectional strife, * * * What you really need is to go to work. (Great laugh: ter.) You should have more schools, more enterprise and thrift, and less recklessness of life, less hatred of what you call carpet baggers-damned Yankees ! Your business enterprise should be conducted more with piety and less with pistols! What Mississippi needs to day is more corn and cotton and less cussed. ness, slaughter and applausel; more mills, more manliness; less murders, less moonshiners. What would improve South Carolina is more hams and fewer Hamburghs. She should raise more horses and hogs and less hell. (Great applause.]"-Congressional Record.

"But what are we to do? We cannot put in one of our own men this time, and have to take a ‘Yank.' That being the case, let us take one who is less 'bluebellied' than the most of them. You may depend upon it, sir, that, “Yank' or no 'Yank,' if elected, the old boys of the South will see that 'Hancock' does the fair thing by them. In other words, he will run the machine to suit them, or they will run the thing themselves. They are not going to be played with any longer. If you hear any man say that 'Hancock' can not carry all of the South, you may put him down as a

fool."

Compiled by GEORGE FRANCIS DAWSON, (Treasurer of the Republican Congressional
Committee, and Ex-Librarian of United States Senate,) Washington, D.O.,
