Such a disposition of the troops seemed to me reasonable Ann justified by Law and precedent while its omission would have been inconsistent with the constitutional duty of the president of the United states to a a take care that the Laws be faithfully tile statutes expressly forbid the bringing of troops to the polls except where it is necessary to keep the peace implying that to keep the peace it May be done but this even so far As i Ani advised. Has not in any Case been done. The Stenti Osting of a company or part of a company in the Vicinity where they would be available to prevent riot has been tile Only use made of the troops prior to Aud at the time of election. When so stationed these could he called in an emergency requiring it by a marshal or a Deputy As a posse to Aid in suppressing unlawful violence. The evidence which Lias come to me has left me no ground to doubt that if there had been More military Force available it would have been my duty to have disposed of it in several states with a View to the prevention of violence and intimidation which have undoubtedly contributed to defeat tile election Law Iii Mississippi Alabama and Georgia As Well As in South Carolina Louisiana and Florida by act of Congress j r.

In cases falling under this title i have not considered it necessary to Issue a proclamation to precede or accompany tile employment of such of the army As seemed to be necessary. In Case of insurrection against the state government or against the government of tile United states a proclamation is appropriate but in keeping tile peace of the United states at an election at which members of Congress Are elected no such cd a from the state or proclamation by the president is prescribed by the statute or required by the president.

In this i have been guided by the Constitution and the Laws which Nave been enacted and the precedents which have been formed under it. It has been necessary to employ troops occasionally to overcome resistance to tile internal Revenue Laws from the time of the resistance to the collection of tile whisky tax in Pennsylvania under Washington to the present time. In 1851, when it was apprehended that resistance would he made in Boston to the seizure and return to his master of a fugitive slave the troops there stationed were employed to enforce the master s rights under the Constitution and the troops stationed at new York were ordered to he in readiness to go to b Ston if it should prove to be necessary. In 1859, when John Brown with a Small number of men made his attack on liar i per s ferry the president ordered the United states troops to assist in the apprehension Aud suppression of him and his party without a formal Call of the legislature or governor of Virginia. And without a proclamation. Without calling further instances in which the executive has exercised his Power As commander of the army and Navy to prevent or suppress resistance to the Laws of the United states or when he has exercised like authority in obedience to a Cal from a state to suppress insurrection i de j sire to assure both Congress and tile country that j it Lias been my purpose to administer tile executive Powers of the government fairly and in no instance to disregard or transcend the limits of the Constitution.

Near one of the pretty villages with which Saratoga county abounds lived a pretty girl named Lisette. She w As the Only daughter of Loving and too Well loved parents about four Miles from the residence of Lisette lived a Young Man named fran who had graduated from College with Honor and was respected by All who knew him notwithstanding some stories reflecting on his moral character that were told of his life w Hile absent at College. When and where Frank first met Lisette is not pertinent to the Story. But Lisette smother heard the stories against Frank and she conceived a great antipathy against him so much so As to forbid him the House and finally to bid her daughter cease All Intercourse with him. But by to this time the mothers injunction had been disregarded. The lovers met whenever Opportunity offered and had the Parent lived the pair would no doubt have been happily married. But Fate ordained otherwise. The Mother sickened and an a stator exploded at the Standard j Oil works at Cleveland on the 26th, kill i a a ont a anr.�?T.

The recent annual election of the grand Lodge of knights of pythias of a message from the president. Was Muton. Jan. 22. In reply to the Resolution of the House of representatives Early in december 1876, requesting the president to transmit to that body copies of All orders or directions emanating from him or from either of the executive departments to any military commander or civil officer relating to the service of the army in Virginia South Carolina Louisiana and Florida since the 1st of August last together with All reports from any of said military or civil officers the president the Day sent to the House of representatives the following message.

The information it will tie observed is voluminous and with tile limited clerical Force in the department of Justice has consumed the time up to the present. Many communications accompanying this have already been made Public in connection with a message heretofore sent to Congress. This class of information includes important documents received from the governor of South Carolina and sent to Congress with my message on the subject of the Hamburg massacre also the documents accompanying my response to tile Resolution of Hie House of representatives in regard to the soldiers stationed of Petersburg. There have also come to me and to the department of Justice from time to time other Earnest written communications from persons holding Public trusts and others residing in the South which i append hereto As bearing upon tile pre of the Public peace in those ,. ,.

These communications i have reason to regard As being made by respectable Aud responsible men. Many of them deprecate the publication of their names As involving danger to them personally. The reports heretofore made by the committees of Congress of the result of their inquiries in Mississippi and in Louisiana and the newspapers of several states recommending the a a Mississippi plan a have also furnished important data for estimating the danger to the Public peace and order Iii those states. It is enough to say that these different kinds and sources of evidence have left no doubt whatever in my mind that intimidation has been used. And actual violence to an extent requiring the Aid of the United states where it was practicable to furnish such Aid. In Mouth Carolina Florida and in Louisiana As Well As Iii Mississippi Alabama and Georgia troops of the United states have been but sparingly used and in no Case so As to interfere with the full exercise of tin right of suffrage. Very few troops were available for the purpose of preventing or suppressing violence and intimidation in tile states above named.

The Mother was Laid in her Grayc and As the pair walked from the new made Mound to the cemetery Gates w Here the carriages awaited them Lisette told him of her mothers dying commands and of her intention of obeying them. There was no time to soften the blow by further explanation or protestation and at the cemetery Gate they parted never to meet again in life. A year passed away and in that time Lisette from a Happy buxom lass had become an invalid. Physicians said it was consumption. Perhaps it we As but she Well knew that sorrow had been the messenger to bring the life destroying agent. At last she too was Laid upon a bed of sickness and a Hen assured that it w Ould be one of death she dispatched a messenger to the Only Man she Ever loved. But alas the messenger was too late. Frank who had been gradually wasting away for a year was stricken Down w Ith a malarial fever and could not recover. But the messenger Liset Tco a brother carried a message Back to the dying girl. A few hours More messages were carried to and fro before the end came. Lisette died and with her last breath told her brother to carry the tidings to Frank and Tell him she would wait his coming. Not Long had she to wait for the tidings of her death snapped the slight Cord that yet bound Fvank to life. In those two Homes four Miles apart two forms were attired for be culture. On the same Day two funeral cortege started and pursued their Way toward the Village burial ground. Slowly and mournfully they moved and singularly they met at the cemetery Gate. Together the coffins were lifted from the hearses and Side by Side the remains of those Loving ones were carried through the Entrance where they last parted rather More than a year Troy n. A prems.
