SCENES AT AGRICULTURAL PARK.
The Speeches— The Procession— The
Chief Events— Number of Peo
ple in Attendance.
Ths ' Republican citizens of Sacramento
yesterday conducted a mammoth barbecue
at Agricultural Park, to which they invited
the people of all the central region of Cali
fornia, irrespective of political faith — and the
people responded. The arrangements for the
barbecue were made with close attention to
details, and notwithstanding the fact that it
mi gotten up in a very brief space of time,
and upon a remarkably large scale, it was
conducted to a successful issue with less fric
tion than the most sanguine anticipated'
Now that it is over it might be criticised as to
some details ; bat, as a whole, it is simple
justice to say that it wasr-^anaewl thr3ngh«at
with ft skill and hospitality which does in
finite credit to the Capital City of California.
It was the greatest barbecue ever given in
interior California, or probably in the State,
and it drew together the largest number of
people ever Been gathered for a tingle day's
«ntert&iament on the coast outside of Sun
Francisco. It is true that the provisions
proved inadequate to the demands of the
multitude, but the intention and effort to
furnish a sufficiency was good. The failure
of the food supply occasioned disappointment
and expressions of dissatisfaction, but the
people readily taw, when admitted to tie
barbecue grounds freely, that Ul3 estimate
only as to the capacity of the average eater
had been too small, and that the willing-ness
of the committee was all that could be wired,
as it sent to the city and purchased
all the cooked food that could be readily
had. As to tho number of people on
the grounds it is impossible to b? exact, but
very close calculations made by systematic
method.?, and with exceeding care give these
figures. At 10 A. m., 8,000; at 11 A. M.,
12.000 ; at noon, 15,000 ;at2r. m . 18,000 ;
from 3t04 p. M., 21,000 people. The people
were constantly coming in and going out at
the gates in great processions, but the figures
given are those of the number on the ground
at the hours named. It follows that a larger
number actually visited the Park during the
ALL THE TRAINS
Came loaded down with people, and betide
the regular trains there were several special.
Every railroad line leading to the city was
taxed to its utmost to transport the people,
and several hundred were unable to obtain |
transportation at all, not having given notice !
in advance of their desire to come, and ap
pearing at the depots only to find the cars
over full, and were left behind, utterly ]
unable to get even standing rcom upon
the care. "So great was the pressure
upon the Sacramento and Placerville
Railroad that an extra train of cars had
to be sent up at a late hour to bring the peo
ple in. Over 1,500 people came from that
direction alone by rail, and it is not the mest
thickly settled vicinity of Sacramento by any
means. The people of Yolo and Sacramento
counties came in great numbers in vehicles.
At Agricultural Park alone at 2 o'clock the
reporters counted no less than 297 country
wa::oL3 and vehicles along the lines uf the
ctables, where the teams had free feed, and
78 out6ide and near the Park, while over 300
were accommodated at various stables and
yards. A. close calculation thus made i! ■■-
the vehicles driven to the city at net lew
than 700. which conveyed to tht «-;iy from
the country 3,000 people from the i^imediate
farming section of Sacramento.
The grand stands at the Park hold when
filled to the brim, 7,000 people, tnd the count
has several times been mads. Any clo?e cb
server at the Park yesterday could see that
the number scattered there over such spacious
ground?, at the bight of the tide, would more
than three times fill the grand stand".
Fur a meeting of people called by i\ single
political party, and drawn from an area of
country so large as that contributing yester
day, and which, compared to populated sec
tions at the East, is exceedingly thinly settled,
the gathering was immense. It came from
an area of country larger than Ohio, Indian
and mini is if combined. It was well the
crowd was no larger, for after 10,500 had
partaken of food at the tables the meats gave
out, and only bread mA cheese and pickles
remained, and when an additional 2,000 was
admitted at 2:30 P. M. those accessories dis
■'««" d " __
Arrangements were excellent. In two
cobble-lined trencbes two oxen were roasted
whole, while in a larger trecch twenty sheep
" were roasted. Great numbers of roasts were i
prepared in ovens in the city also, and in all
nearly s,oooponndsoi meat was cooked for the l
tables. Besides corn beef, beans and. cooked
meats came in large quantities from families
in this city, who replied to the call of the
committee aud sent in beside, baked bear.c,
bread and ikes. The eating arrangements j
were admirable. Two great dining-halki :
were providni with tables. One accommo
dated SSO and one 1,800 people at a time.
The tables when spread contained meats in j
variety, Li-cnit, Ijread, cheese, pickle?,
crullers, cookies, cake, corn an I wheat bread,
stewed ar.d baked b ians with pork, soda bis
cuit, milk and butter crackers, etc. The
service of the tal.le was excellent, and the
comniittc-0 had ita employes under good con
trol and well disciplined. The Boys in Blue
will ever be remembered for the faithful dis
charge of the unpleasaLt task they undertook
and so successfully accomplished, They
guarded the dining-roome, admitting only
bumcient at ■ time to fill them. It was hard
work, but it was well done, and in a gentle
manly but firm way that commanded respect
The coffee stand, ket.t by the ladies, proved
a great blessing, ami when the provisions j
gave out the ladies never faltered, but sop- !
plied the eager multitude with the refreshing
beverage until the last one was satisfied.

at the depot, and with musk escorted them
to their headquarters and thence to the
Park. At 10 A. M. the Boys in Blue

canal-boat, moved from Sixth and M streets
to the P&rk. From that time on there wan

THE UTMOST - " :M:ILITY
Was noticeable. Indeed the social character
of the barbecue was its most marked feature.
l he people reeinel more than happy in meet
ing, and each vied with the other to make
his fellow feel at home, and pleasantly. This
sociil fsettng was greatly enhanced by the
personal efforts of the Sacramento ladies,
who were out by the hundred, mingling with
the people and exercising that influence
which the presence of pure women always
exerts. Tbe young ladiea and their supervis
ing committees occupied the Judges' stand,
which was elegantly decorated with flags,
shields, tri-colcred cloth and ornamental
designs of the decorative art. There they
delivered badges to all who came, and pinned
them to the breast* of thousands pi men.
Detail? of these ladies went out about the
ground* with their badges, but there was no
importunity, and no man not desiring a badge
was embaraaw 1 by any undue efforts to have
him take one. The badges consisted of three
ribbon*— white and blue — gathered at
tin: top so as make the red and blue flank the
white at acute angles. On the white was
printed a portrait of James A. Garfield, and
the words, "Gartield Barbecue, October 21,
1880, Sacrameato, Cal. "
Was maintained all day— no, it did not need
to be ; it prevailed. ' livery mm, woman and
child was there to be happy, and no one
dreamed of anything else. Not an incident
ha- come to light ss occurring to be called
a breach of the peace. : The Chief of Police,
the Sheriff, the Boys in Blue, and the Execu
tive Committee patroled the grounds, but not
onca were they called on to preserve the
peace. A better ordered company of people
never assembled. And they were enthu.-i
--astic, too ; the speakers were ', loudly and
often applauded and cheered, and all over
the grounds was to be heard shouting, and
cheering, and congratulation. . Even Dem
ocrats and Greenbackers caught the infec
tion, and now and then cheered. It was a
representative assemblage. Men of industry,
neatness, sobriety and intelligence prevailed.
The rough, the rowdy and the bully were
conspicuous by their absence ; and in all parts
of tbe Park the people could be heard
saying, " Look at this congregation ; of such
is the Republican party."
Sacramento did not really begin to turn out
well until about 1 r. m., and then her people
poured into the Park in vast numbers, and
the crowd was swelled by 4 P. M. to its
greatest high t. ■
Speaking proceeded from three lofty and
handsomely-decorated stands— on the
quarter-stretch, one on the first turn and one
at the entrance to the barbecua grounds. At
each a band of music was placed, and at
each a distinct set of presiding officers, and
each stand had about it a splendid audience,
attentive, thoughtful and enthusiastic. I At
the outset of the speaking the south stand
had an audience of 5,000, the north, stand of
3,000, and at the east stand 2,000.
Trie East Stand.
Speaking was inaugurated at the east stand
at 1 o'clock. It was located at the gate near
est the large eating hall, and an immense
concourse of people were collected there wait
ing for an opportunity to get something to
eat. Ex-Mayor Chris. Green, who bad
charge of this stand, introduced as the first
Of Chico, Butte county. On being intro
duce he said that he was here to-day to have
something to say about the great Republican
party ; that party of great achievements ;
that party that ennobles and civilizes man
kind. He wished particularly to talk to Demo
crats. He advised them to join the Republican
party. The Republican party has charge of
the great car of human progress, and Demo
crats were now invited to come aboard of it.
W6 cannot otter you offices, but it is better
to be a door-keeper in the house of the Lord
than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
[Applause, We will take you all in. Wo
will strip you of the dirty grey rags of seces
sion and dress you in the
WHITE KOBES OF LOYALTY
And purity. You, who cried for reform in
1870, have found it in the administration of
Rutherford B. Hayes. He insisted that more
stealing had taken place under Democratic
administrations than there ever had been
under Grant's administration or any other
Republican administration. The Demo
cratic party is the party of States
Right?. It insists on that in .every
platform, and just so long as they kept on
that, line they would be defeated by the Re
publican party. [Applause.] The Southern
Brigadiers and tneir party were still con
tending for the doctrine of secession. If we
have again to rasort to arms, let every patriot
stand ready. He looked beyond the ques
tions of finance and saw the danger of the
very life of the Government. The Demo
crats claim that if Hancock is elected he shall
be inaugurated. That is all right ; we have
no objections to that. But they make it as
a threat. They meant that if Hancock stood
in the same position as Tilden did four years
ago, they would inaugurate him though it
ruined the Government. Admit that Han
cock was a good soldier ; but there were other
and better Generals. The Democrats claimed
that Hancock won the victory at Gettysburg
alone. They d.d not n ention the other great
Generals who were there, or the services of
the privates. They have no other fighting
cock to praise than Hancock.
O>"E THING IS TRUE —
If Hancock ever won any laurels he won
them with Republican spurs. He denounced
Hancock as the tool of Andrew Johnson's
administration and the too] of the South.
His brief period of power in the Fifth Mili
tary District was his only experience as a
statesman, and that was a failure. The
Democrats were even attempting to capture
thf* colored vote, but it would not work. He
called his audience back to twenty years ago,
and drew a glowing picture of the scenes of
those days. It was true that many good
Democrats weut into the army to save tha
country, but 99 out of every 100 of them came
out Republicans, and were Republicans still.
To pay the soldiers it was necessary to issue
greenbacks, Tha Democrats opposed it and
BaiJ it was unconstitutional. The greenbacks
paid the soldiers and furnished the i-inews of
war. Then after the war the Democrats up
posed specio payments and wanted the Gov
ernment debt paid off in greenbacks. The
quest! of the currency and the tariff are
of little importance now. The question is,
have we a nation ? What did Hampton say
at Staunton? lie called on the men of the
South lo stand up for the principles for which
Lee and Jackson fought. Let the people of
the North stand firm for the principles for
which Lincoln and Grant fought. _ [Ap
plause.] He defended Garfield, and said that
he stood high above all his detractors. He
did not take the back pay which Ben. Butler
did. He was a son of toil, while the only
instrument Hancock ever wielded was the
bloody sword. [Applause.]
The crowd gave three cheers for the
speaker, three more for Garfield ar.d Arthur,
and the bind played "Red, White and

Mr. Mizner said that everything was subject
to decay. It was evidenced by the present on
slaught on the beef and mutton in the adjoin
ing building. 'I he Democratic party was an
evidence of it a few days ago in Indiana,
and there was another good sisn of it a few
' days ago in San Francisco. The Democratic
I elector from Sonoma on that occasion called
i (for champagne. When the Democratic
party deserted whisky and took to champagne,
' • it was the best evidence in the world that
; the Democratic party was in the last stages
lof decay. [Applause and laughter.] If
I the Democratic party hid it.-* way the
nation would hare no Sag to-day. The He
imblican party had been kind to the South,
It had admitted the rebel }'ric;a.iiers to Con
gress when there was a two-thirds llcpubli
can majority in that body. That double
dyed old traitor, Wade Hampton, who had
taken many oaths to rapport the Constitu
tion of the United States and then went into
the rebellion, started
the BLOODY SHIRT
Argument in this campaign. The Republi
can party did not with to revive that ques
tion, but they bad been forced into it by this
old traitor who first called Secretary Sher
man a liar and then challenged him to mortal
combat. He hoped the people of the nation
would frown down such proceedings. [Ap

BOX. C. N. VOX
If Alaineda was introduced and spoke to the
large hut shifting crowd. He predicted, in
the opening of his remarks, a certain and
glorious victory for the Republican party.
There were several reasons why the Demo
cratic party should not be trusted < with
power. There were many Rood men' in the
Democratic party, bat they could not control
it. No [.arty wad better tkan its leader. No
1 stream could rise above its source. The Dem
-1 ocratic ■:..;:. bad its source in the South and
1 flowed towards the. North. H9 discuosed the
1 doctrine of State right*. That was the doc
: trine of the Democratic party. ■ It had not
always been so. The Democratic party was
a Union party under Jackson, and he said,
"By the Eternal ! this Union must and shall
be preserved." But there was dissension in
, the party. The secession party under Cal
i bom finally won their point, and the Jackson
, plartkwa* stricken from the Democratic plat
. form. State rights meant the right of seces
sion. The fruit of the doctrine of State
, rights was rebellion. This same question
. confronts at to-day as in 18C0. If the cenn
, try to-day confessed the right, then the
war was fought in vain. It the right was
acknowledged the Government could not re
fuse to pay the Southern claims. 'If the
[ doctrine of State rights was confessed then
. it "*'■'- a confession that the South was right
[ and the North wrong. If the South m right
then the government had no right to put
, down the rebellion and must pay the Southern
, claims. The first bill would be one of two
billions of dollars for human chattels, because
, if tho Smith was right then the slaves were
; not legally emancipated. Then would follow
, claims for individual losses of all kinds. There
' was nothing .in the Constitution to pro
hibit the payment of these claims, no
matter what might be said by the
Democrats. Ho referred to House Bui No.
3833, a bill to increase the number of Judges
of the Supremo Court of the United States
from nine to twenty- one, giving the Presi
dent the appointment of , twelve new Judges.
That bill would be the means of securing the
payment of the Southern claims, Hancock

was only nominated when Wade Hampton
pledged to him the solid South, and the lead
ers of the South would always control every
Democratic administration. He scored David
S ' Terry in a most terrible manner, and
called on the dead Broderick to come forth
and tell the people who these men were. -'-_•«
. After music by the Woodland band Mr.
Green- introduced .
• * GENERAL J. A. WILLIAMSON,
Commissioner of the General Land Office at
Washington, who was received with applause.
He paid that he happened to be out this way
on governmental business, and was very glad
of the opportunity to address briefly such an
audience of California!^. . Unaccustomed as
he was to public speaking, it would | not bo
expected of him to go into a discussion of
political platform, but he could say a word
in regard to the monstrous situation of pres
ent affairs. He knew General Hancock per
sonally and intimately. He was a loyal man
and a gallant soldier, but he could have no
individuality as President. He would be
controlled, in the very nature of things, by
those who placed him in that position. j .He
was not a statesman, while Garfield was the
best-versed mac, of his age, in statecraft that
this country ever had. His record ? was
bright and glorious . ever since he first went
to Congress. He seemed made by God
especially for a leader in the politics of the
GENERAL JAMES H. SiHANKLIN,
Surveyor-General of ' California, then briefly
addressed the crowd, telling them who Gen
eral Williamson was. He proposed three
cheers for him, and they were given with a
will. He then told what he knew about
Garfield, and elicited warm applause.
• Mr. Fox then proposed three cheers for the
silent men of the country, who are coming
forward in the campaign — General U. S.
Grant, of Illinois, and General Jas. H.
Shanklin, of California. They were given
with a will.
GEORGE W. KICKS, ESl^.,
Was then introduced and made a speech
principally to the Boys in Blue. He had
been a Workingman, but when Wade Hamp
ton, at Cincinnati, pledged to Hancock a
solid South he thought it time for him to
join the Republican party again. He had
fought for this country and wanted to vote
again for it. He denounced the Democratic
party in unmeasured terms. It was not tit
for the meanest tramp in existence to belong
to. It had no principles and no honcsiy. i
Hancock was only a tool in the hands of the
Copperheads of the North and the rebels of
the South. '-V . "
Three cheers were given for the speaker
and the Boys in Blue, and the band again j
gave some excellent music.
FRANK T. BOWEES,
A colored Boy in Blue, was then introduced
and received with three cheers. He made
an excellent speech, which was constantly in
terrupted with storms of applause. He con
gratulated himself that he was with them j
and with them in the full habiliamentA of |
American citizenship. [Applause.] He was |
as stanch a black Republican as could be
found. He needed no encouragement to be a
Republican. It was about as probable that j
any intelligent colored man would be a Dem- i
ocrat as that an angel would come down ]
from heaven and join that party. [Applause.] i
The colored people were grateful to the Re- i
publican party for their deliverance, and
could equally hate the Democratic party.
His speech was enthusiastically received and
he was given three more cheers at the close of
his remarks by immense crowd that had ;
stopped in front of the stand during the time
he was speaking.
The meeting was then closed with three
rousing cheers for Garfield and Arthur.
The North Stand]
At half-past one o'clock the audience was
called to order by Judge T. B. McFarland,
who said we have met not so much for the
purpose of making votes as to swell up the I
tide of Republicanism. The Democratic j
party is long-lived ; it is next in tenacity j
to a mule, but it is time it received its
quietus. If we win the fight, no doubt the
solid South will change its allegiance from
the Democratic party. We have difficult
elements to fight in this State — genuine
rebels, Northern dough-faces and the foreign
element, but he doubted not that we would
carry the election. He introduced ' •
GENERAL J. F. MILLER,
Who said that if all who were here were lie
publicans there was little chance for the
Democratic party. We do not expect to j
elect the President by talk, but by ballot* ; j
the time for talking has about ended and the
time for action is at hand. Every Repub
lican must put his shoulder to the wheel and
assist in rolling up a grand majority in this j
State. The Democracy have not shown any i
reason for a change in the administration.
We look about us and find that our national
credit is higher than that of any nation on
earth, and that all departments of busi- |
ness are prosperous, and the intelligent |
people of the country pertinently in
quire why should there be a change.
The Democratic party is a party of
fusion. They have fined with everything
that is in opposition to the Republican party.
They have taken home Ben Butler, who is
like the man who hid been out all night, and I
whose wife met him and a?ked, "What do
on come home at this time in the morning
for?" He replied, " All, the other places are
shut up." The Democratic party have
adopted our record, and have stolen the j
credit of our financial policy, of resumption j
and of having put down the rebellion. Our
State Democratic speakers claim that they
put down the rebellion, and I would inquire
who put it up? They say many Democrats
joined the Federal army, but it docs not J
prove thit the Democratic party put down
the rebellion. When a man put on the Union
uniform he left his Democracy behind him,
and the votes of the soldiers show that the
Republican votes were in the vast majority
at the election in 1864. The campaign has
A PERSONAL ONE
By the Democrats, and one cf abuse and vili
fication against Garfield, one of the bravest
Generals and ablest statesmen in the nation.
They claim that for $839 he has sold his great
name and honorable record, but the results
in Indiana and Ohio have affixed the seal
of condemnation to thii ridiculous charge. '
They claim that Garfield left the I
front and sought safety in Congress.
I happen to knowfbuw that occurred. lie re
ceived letters urging him to come home and
run for Congress, and at the earnest solicita
tion of his officers he returned home ami en
tered Congress, and rendered a- efficient ser
vice as any officer could h.ive rendered in the |
field. At Chicamauga be proved that he was '
a man of bravery, and by his skill and exam
pie he aided materially in saving the army !
from disaster. Hi.i comradex know that a j
braver soldier, a better patriot and an abler
statesman never lived.
.' W. a. mm
Was introduced, and said : He thought as he
saw this great crowd streaming in, of the open
ing of the war of secession, when the men of
the North came forward in response to the
call for volunteers. It is the old thrill of
patriotism over again. When Napoleon sur
rendered the reins of Government to one of
his children, and he was exiled to Elba, and |
returning to France the peopl* rallied around j
him, and the Bourbon King left his throne in I
disgrace. The old spirit of Napoleon lives in
France to-day, and so also does the old spirit
of State rights live in the South. Until i
two generations of the Booth shall have !
(lied out this spirit will not die out. I
and it needs but the rallying cry of
Wade Hampton to warm it into life. The
Democrats want a change. Suppose a man |
had me down and shot at me four or five '
times, and I get the best of him, and he
should cry out, " Give me a change ; give me
back my revolver," do you think I would do
it That is a parallel case with the South.
The solid Son*.h have now the balance of
power in both honcesof Congress, and the only
salvation now is in a loyal Executive. The
solid South is but a small portion of the
country, and yet they demand to control
every department of the National Govern
ment. ! Political campaigns ' are , always
serious matter*. The ballots of the American
citizen are as the falling of the snow-flakes— i
their accumulated weight decide what the |
people of the conn desire. It will not do I
for the people of the South to say that they 1
have not interfered with the free exercise of
the ballot. He himself had been warned to
leave . Savannah because of hi; free lit
terances, and he knew that the Southern
people had ■ intimidated the Republican
vote of the South. v In 1856 the Democratic
party renunciated the doctrine of the Ken
tucky and Virginia resolutions of : 1798,

And -of secession. .. In ISOO secession fol
lowed, and the Democrat* put this sentiment,
into practical effect/Judge Terry, recently
thanked God in a speech that Hancock had
mo such a record as , Garfield. It was \ very
much like the religious croceryinan who di
rected his son to sand the su^ar and , water
the rum, and then mine up to prayers. 'The
Democrats | claim to ' be tho j Meads lof the
workingmen." In 1859 a Democrat Introduced
; a bill into a Democratic Congress in the inter- :
est of land-grabbers, and defeated an amend- 1
ment designed to secure the rights of actual ]
settlers, and it was not , until a Republican
Congress came into power that the homotead
bill was passed. Now everything is prosper
ous ; the Republicans have proved to be the i
friends of j the | workingmen < and there is no
reason for a change. ;, The Democratic party

quated clothe* of the Republican party, but
they have on the tattered hat of State sov
ereignty." When: I hear the expressions of
Wade Hampton and other rebels, I feel that
any Republican who would vote the Demo
cratic ticket is a traitor to God Almighty.'
If you have ' ever seen a ship sailing under
nothing but its jury mast, you - will appreci
ate the position of the •'••■ Democratic
party :of to-day. ' The greatest blunder
of ? the Southern people . was ;-'. in not
affiliating with the Republican party at the
close of the war. 'The people of the North
are not fools; they know that loyalty is not
on the side of Wade Hampton. The country
has never been so prosperous as to-day. The
Resumption Act ' has been a master step in
this movement toward prosperity : and it has
been the redemption cf the workingmen and
manufacturers. He asked the . old Republi
cans if they would now, like P>rutu3, fall
upon their swords and Bay, " Oh, Republican
party, I have followed you for twenty year*, i
and I now find you a shade and a myth !''
He urged all Republicans to go bravely to
work and aid in the glorious success that
awaits us. :;','.,'
The speech was concluded with an enthu
siastic cheer for the Republican ticket.
G. «. BLASCHARD
Wai introduced, and said that he brought
cheering news from the mountains. He con-,
gratulated the Republicans on their success
in Indiana ; the news is too much, and it is
more than we expected. He desired to be let
alone ordinarily, but he thanked the Presi
dent for the opportunity he now had of con
gratulating the Republicans on their chances
of success. We are sure of carrying the solid
North, New Jersey not excepted. General
Miller stands at the head of the Republican
Electoral ticket, and when he made his gal
lant charge that saved Tennessee from re
bellion, where was David S.Terry, the head
of the Democratic Electoral ticket? It is
the same old fight, and who shall win? Terry
is the head and front of the Democratic party
in the State. He is talking about a solid
South, and says that his people are solid for
the Democratic party. I say. give us a solid
North in counter ton solid South. It is a
shame for any Republic in to falter at this
time. The Republican party is friendly to
ward the South, but the issue of State rights
has been forced upon us by the South, and we
must meet it. The South now hold the keys
of government, and it raises not 17 per cent,
of the internal revenue, and the other de
partments of Federal revenue receive but
little support from that section of the Union ;
and he protested against a minority ruling
the majority. The great West is en
titled to consideration in national poli
tics, and the Republican party desire
to recognize that section of the country.
There is no necessity for a change in the ad
ministration of Government ; and the people
do not desire any Democratic tinker to come
in and steal the jewels from the machinery of
Government. There is now no party than
the Republican capable of administering the
Government. The Democratic party is simply
a brake on the wheels. After cheers for Gar
field and Arthur, the President introduced
HON. H. V. page,
Who was received with applause, and said
that he congratulated the Republicans on the
auspicious condition of national politics, and
it was evident that the party was aroused,
and wag determined to succeed in this elec
tion. We are threatened with a solid South,
and why '! Because they are striving to vin
dicate their position during the war. We
met the solid South in the late war, and it
went down before the invincible tread of the
Boys in Blue, and we will meet them next
month, and will then vindicate the principles
for which Grant and Sherman fought. We
| have co animosity against the South, but we
must vindicate the action of our soldiers on
the field. General Hancock, it is true, was
an efficient, loyal soldier, but in this cam
paign he is surrounded with secessionists
and Copperheads, and to support him is
to support the ancient enemies of the nation.
General Gai field has the support of the loyal
people of the North, who during the years of
the war furnished the men and means to
carry on the war against the Southern se
The audience gave throe cheers for Frank

ATTORXEY-CEXEHAL A. L. HABT,
Who said : We are willing to place General
Garlield against General Hancock on per
sonal grounds, and as between them if Gar
field is not the better man, let the verdict be ;
against him. General Hancock i.i presented
to us as a Union soldier, but he is backed by
the Confederates and North ernsympathizeiß
with the South. Immediately on the close
of the war Hancock declared in favor of the
Democratic platform that the war was a fail
ure, and yet he come 3 before the American
people asking for their support under his
General Order No, 40, which nullified the
loyal act.s of Congress, and in which he acted
in treason to the Government. When a man
is sworn to perform official duties and refuses
to perform them, he is acting out the South
ern doctrine of State rights, and must be
in sympathy with them. General Gai field
has never refused to perform an official
duty ; hut he has explicitly defined his posi
tion on every public issue. General Hancock
said a few days ago that the tariff was a pure
ly local question. It is local with a man who
it afraid to take a position on an important
question ; but if a child should answer as
Hancock did in relation to the tariff, he would
deserve a castigation for his ignorance. ' The
Chinese question is all important with the
people of this coast, among whom there is no
division of sentiment. The speaker discussed
the Chinese question, and declared that Gar
field had always advocated a modification of
the treaty with the Chinese Government,
bnt very properly he had voted against the
passage of laws which were in derogation
with the existing people. GarSeldjhad not
attempted to pander to the prejudices of the
people ; he had acted the pail of the true
statesman and of honesty. He regarded the
result in ludiana as an index to the national

day of rejoicing, because we have heard from

SPEECH OF J. lICM. SHAFTER. .
J. McM. Shatter was then introduced, and
was received with applause. Mr. Shafter
said he was one of the oldest talking Repub
! licans in the State. Forty years ago he was
talking human liberty in Vermont. Twenty
eight years ago he was talking the same thing
at a barbecue in Wisconsin. lie went on to
describe in eloquent language the progress of
liberty since that day. This State is a great cos
mopolitan collection of people, who have come
here to enjoy our liberty, and do their part in
the great work of government, and it was to
them he addressed his remarks. We are told
that we ought to forget injuries ; but it is
hard to forget. The Whigs and Democrats,
and Republicans and Democrats have com
FOR FIFTY YEARS
In the management of the Government. The
Democratic party ie the outgrowth and the
dependent child of - slavery. It could not
have existed without the slave power of the
South. The Northern men have knuckled to
the institution of slavery, or to the Southern
Democrats, for the purpose of ' obtaining
office. Cotton was indeed king, and Northern
Democrats bowed down to the power. , The
South never had bnt about ten per cent, of
the business, and only a third of the white
population, and yet the South dominated the
whole country. - '
The Democratic party pretends to be the
great lover of the Constitution, yet they only
love it when it serves their purpose. When
Vermont undertook to have Congress prevent
the auction ■ block > being established within
hearing of , Congress, ; then the ' South i said
Congress had no such power, and petitions
on the subject : were : not allowed : t<> V>e
read or referred, and the ' right ; of petition
was denied because it tended to make them
uneasy in their domicile of sin and slavery.
Tn;* South was given nearly all the positions
in tii«' ermy, and so if: 1 went. •; This afflicted
the Northern mind, and the Northern people
began to be what the South sail,
( We were fit to work for them, and import
goods free of duty for their benefit, and expert
their goods at low rates.' He referred to
William Lloyd Garrison, who, he said, pub
lished a paper. ' The Mayor of Boston was

I that paper and keep it from circulating in
j the ■ South. :. That , Mayer replied '; that

by a hand of iron. They were ostracized in
every I way, and were not - allowed even to

; South for men of the North to express a

But the Being who manages this world has
what is called retribution, aud it has come at
last." The South didn't trust the Northern
• Democrats. The North never had a Presi
dent, because the North could not be trusted.
He then followed the history of the country
down to the present.
1 THE SOUTH 13 NOT SOLID,
; And never will be until this Government is
destroyed. Mr. Lincoln, . fairly elected to
office, had to seek his office in disguise, to
keep from being destroyed, and by whom ?
■ I Not, as Judge Wallace would have the pec
i pie believe, at the hands of the Republicans,
; but at the hands of these secessionists. j The
. speaker proceeded to administer a most in
. tensely scathing castigation of the Democratic
party, and showed clearly their inconsistency,
the falsity of all their pretenses, and tore the
uTasks from the faces of the schemers who,
■ when Lincoln was inaugurated, fired the
1 train that had been laid for many years. The
1 Democrats were the bounty-jumpers. The
1 Democrats degraded the public currency,
' bought Southern scrip, discouraged the armies
of the Union, shirked the draft, resisted the
■ draft Democrats, every man cf them. It is
' THE NATURAL CONSEQUENCE
[ Of their doctrine. No Democrat ever cx
i pressed a word of regret that slavery existed,
. or ever tried to abolish it. The Democrats
. of the North sold their manhood for a few
[ loaves of official bread. But, he said, the
i spirit of liberty was not dead. The institu
■ tion of slavery waa doomed. They could
• kick petitions under the table, but they could
[ not stop the men who presented those peti
. tions from thinking. The South had no right
[ to secede. They had no cause to secede.
i They had all the offices. But they had re
i solved to go, because they hated the North
. with a hatred that they would not relax, and
, they refused to live with us any longer.
i lie showed the various Democratic plat
i forms, where, he said, you could find any
thing in the world. If you wanted free trade,
. you could find it. If you want a tariff plat
, form, you will find it.
; THE GREAT FIGHT FOR LIBERTY
' Has been fought and won. lie thanked
' heaven that Americans were helped by loyal
' hearted foreign-born citizens who saw the
1 issue. The resources of a generation have
been mortgaged to pay the loss > of this great
' war, but they are paying it off in good faith.
' There has never been a great commotion
• such as this was where the scaffold has not
: reaped its harvest, except here in this free
' country, where the men were allowed to go
■ scot free. Where has such mercy been
shown. [Applause.] It was well, perhaps,
' to do this, but the band of yelping coyotes at
the North who aided and assisted them ought
to have been hung. [Applause ] These North
lem men, having no party to go to, and nooffices,
t encouraged the South to keep up their great
j struggle, saying, When you do succeed please
give us something ; we are hungry ; please j
I make us dish-washers ; please make us
Judges, or Congressmen, or something of that
' kind. The speaker analyzed the Vir
[ ginia and Kentucky resolution?, and
. showed how they were indorsed by mod
' era Democracy. At the close of his speech
1 three routing cheers were given for Judge
J HON. A. A. SARGENT
, Was then introduced in an eloquent manner
I by the Chairman, Mr. Cadwalader. He said
i the demonstration of to-day was more elo
, quent than language could be, for it
i augurs victory. This pathenn? is a
i tribute to the October States. We have
felt, he said, the electric thrill ; we
have felt that there i* victory in the air, oth
■ er\vi«e it would have been impossible to as
, semble such , an audi-nce. The Democrats
. had their laccr'i when they made their nom
ination^, but they arc not laughing much
. now. He would not, he said, talk long, be- i
cause his mission was to call dinners, and not
the righteous. From the looks of the badges
he thought there were very few tinners
; around. [Liughter.] The speaker was hu
morous throughout, and about equally di
. vided the audience with Senator Cheney at
, the other stand. His speech abounded in
anecdote?, which elicited roars of laughter.
He discussed the issues of the day in a clear,
I candid manner, without any abase or person
, alities. He paid a high
TRIBUTE TO GENERAL GAItKIEI),
Whom he said he had known intimately for a j
long tiir.e. Ho reviewed his life from boy
! hood up, and his course since he entered
public life. He considered him peculiarly
fitted for this highest of all positions. He is
i one of the people, and in full sympathy with
them, md with the spirit of Republicanism.
i He alsc reviewed the career of Chester A.
Arthur, describing his course in setting free a
[ number of negroes who were brought through
, a tree State on their way to another slave
. i State. He cited numerous acts of his life to
, show that he was peculiarly qualified to
i occupy thin high position on a Republican
I ticket. He is no chase; nominee ; he is a
] | man of whom the Republican party may be
1 I proud.
, Mr. Sargent said it is always the industrial
, classes who pay tho taxe3. The Democrats
', ran the Government into debt ; the Republi-
I cans are reducing expenses a:.d paying off
the debt. For every second of time since the
; war, by day or by night, SI 50 has gone off
of the national debt. Is not that a showing
', of economy? [Applause.] Under Buchanan
l two to three millions were stolen ; under
; Hayes only several thousand. [Applause.]
', Notwithstanding Judge Wallace, ho denied
l that it was the Democrats who put down the
, rebellion. [Applause.] He denied that it
[ was the Republicans who fired on Sumter
[applause], and that is
THE LOGICAL CONCLUSION.
A Democratic success means the payment
of Southern claims, and he asserted it as a
fact of which he was thoroughly
satisfied. There are bills pending
amounting to thousands of millions.
i Thero are claims for poultry, pigs
i and fence*. Bills for rent of the battle
i grounds on which they were whipped. If
I they are not to be paid, why are these claims
[ filed away and evidence preserved ? Why
• are these bills presented to Congress. It i 3
. useless to deny it — they will be paid if the
> Democrats ever get into power. The ques
• tion is now whether the national debt shall
> be doubled. That would be the result of
> Democratic success. Another result would
r be the destruction of a free ballot. He went
on to describe the method by which several
i thousand bogus naturalizations were issued in
, an hour — regular Courts for that purpose
, and these fraudulent voters were sent all over
. the other States wherever they were needed.
The State of New York cannot be carried
1 this time by any such methods ; hence the
i State is sure for Garfield; hence those howls.
• He went on to describe the process of stuffing
< ballot-boxes in the South, and the demonstra
■ tion elicited roars of laughter. He him
; self had visited Florida, with a committee,
> and ;. upon ■ investigating he found that the
E ballots were numbered. A master would
• give one of these numbered ' ballots to his
s negro hired man, and then record his name
i and the number in . a book, ■ and after the
i election the ballot* were examined, and if it
1 was found that he had not voted that ballot,
i he was immediately discharged and ostra
, cized. We appeal to poor men to put a veto
■ upon any such thing as that, and to upheld
the purity of the ballot box. i ' : '
1 The Republicans promise to keep the green
, back as good as gold. They have made them
, as good as gold, and they will keep them so.
; They promise to protect a free ballot. v They
, promise pure elections, and they promise that
, in the : South there shall be ; a fair, free and
! decent ballot. [Applause.] .. Allow the Dem
, ocrats to run the Government, and the solid
[ South will dominate the policy of the country

Leavlßg the Park.
It was now nearly ?> o'clock. During the
speaking by Senator Booth he hid an audi
ence of net lees than 7,000 people. At the
conclusion of his oration the crowd dispersed
and the organised companies formed in line
ready to march to J street. Ju«t prior to
that, however, the First Artillery Band ser
enaded the ladies at the badge stand, the
Boys in Blue standing at a parade rest in
front of the stand duiing the serenade, at the
conclusion of which the companies, escorted
by the Marshals, left the Park, and the bar
becue was virtually at an end. There waa
now two hours of rest before the evening pa
rade and torchlight precession, and it was
utilized by visitors to drive and walk
about the city and take as eood
j a look at Sacramento as the brief time
afforded. It is permissible to say that the
compliments passed upon Sacramento's homes
were many and warm. The streets were
thronged with people at an early hour. In
deed at no previous celebration haa there
been seen such an outpouring of ths popula
tion of Sacramento upon the streets. The
mingling of the hundreds of uniformed men
with the more plainly dressed citizens ; the
bustle and jostle on the crowded ways, the
hmry of teams and the galloping of mounted
marshals ; the p'.entitude and be.uity of deco
rations on all the chief streets ; the nutter of
i small flags and the floating of heavy banners
I in the breeze ; the bmy of trumpets and
! the rattle of drum«, all combined to make
the early evening on tne t'rects one full of
excitement and interest, which intensified as
darknass fell, and the companies and delega
tions began to assemble at tlie rendezvous
preparatory to the evening parade.
THE TORCHLIGHT PROCESSION.
The great torchlight procession proved
the grandest affair of the kind ever held
in California outside the limits of San
Francisco. The divisions formed along M
street and cross streets, and at 7:30 moved
in this" order out Seventh street from M to
0, to Eighth, to N, to Ninth, to 0, to
j Tenth, to N, to Thirteenth, through Capitol
Park, to L, to Eleventh, to H, to Ninth, to
J, to Tenth, to X, to Second, to .T, to Tenth,
countermarching on J to the foot of the line,
and thence at will to the Pavilion. First
came Grand Marshal Mike Bryte, with
Chief Aids T. H. Berkey and A. C. Freeman
and a cavalcade of thirty-two Aids. Chief
of Police Karcher and four mounted officers.
Firßt Division, Geo. M. MotS. Marshal—
First Artillery Band, 1G men. The Boys in
Blue, 85 strong (and every man an eld
Boldier), commanded by W. A. Ilough
ton. They bore the Shaler-flare torch
and wore bluo capes and cape, with
red and white trimming?. They marched
like veterans, and were much complimented
for their fine appearance and excellent drill.
At their front rode, on a fine saddle-horse,
Mrs. T. I). Scriver, robed appropriately as
the Goddess of Liberty, and bearing aloft the
starry banner. Her horse was led by one of
the Boys in Blue. Her appearance attracted
much attention and was creditable to the
tasta and bearing of the lady. With this di
vision also was a decorated platform wagon
on which was grouped a dozen Union soldiers
representing a picket guard roused by an
alarm and standing ready for attack. . It was
a handsome and well-sustained group. The
Republican . Legion, O. N. Post President,
Company A, Clinton L. White Captain, 100
strong, rank and file. This command was in
its handsome uniform of tri-color leather
jackets and caps, and presented a fine ap
pearance, winning warm compliments and
marching with a precision and correct
ness indicative of very thorough drill.
A group upon a handsomely-ornamented
wagon, represented the " Ringing of the In
dependence Bell, July 4th, 1770." The group
was made up ol gentlemen from the store of
M. C. Hawley & Co., and consisted of H. J.
Norton, A. Dassonville, Master John Mul
ligan and one man in the Union army uni
form of to-day. The others were clad in the
old Continental style, and won the powdered
wig and cue. They were grouped about a
great bell which one of the Continentals oc
casionally struck. On the sides of the plat
form were these mottoes : " Ring, ■ ring
grandpa, ring, oh, ring for liberty." "The
Independence bell of 1776 proclaims again to
the people of 1880." The Modesto Club, H.
Babbitt commanding, was 180 strong and
bore an exceedingly large flag which could
only be carried by the aid of several men.
The uniform of the Club was a neat cap with
lettered band. The members of this club
got considerably scattered and mixed 'up
with other clubs.
The Reno Garficld and Arthur Club, 00
strong, C. J. Campbell commanding. This
club bore two very large portraits of Garfield
and Arthur, and a number of transparencies ;
also a Democratic eagle, in the form of a
live turkey perched on a pole. Some of the
transparencies read: "Garfield and Glory,"
" 12,500 majority in Garfield's District. Tell
that to the ; mud-slinger*," " 329 lies won't
elect Hancock," " We want a change down
South. 1 ' ;; The ; club excited much agreeable
surprise, coming as it did so far, and from
outside the State, and without any notice of
its intention to visit Sacramento, vlt was a
fine body of representative men. '

- THE FOURTH DIVISION
Was marshaled by E. K. Alsip, followed by
Church, Jones and Beebe's j band, thirteen
pieces. Then came the Republican Sailor
Boys' Club of Sacramento, 150 rank and tile,
Gus Weimann commanding. They bore, in
stead of torches, blue light?, and on staffs
neat ornamental lanterns, emblazoned on one j
side with the American eagle and on the j
other with the American flag. Above each '
lantern was a streamer with the words G&r
field and Arthur. The club bore a beautiful
blue silken banner inscribed with its title in
gold letters. It was an elegant banner, and
the club may well be proud of it. The needle
work upon it was dm* and presented to the
clubby Mrs. W. P. Emery and Mrs. Wm.
Stevenson. The club wore its handsome uni
form of white wool shirts and blue panta
loons and cap with white trimmings, and the
cap band lettered in gold R. S. B. C. The
club marched excellently well, and was a
striking feature of the line, being
frequently applauded and forming one
of the subjects of complimentary com
ment all along the streets among
the spectators. Several little ■ fellows in the
full costume of the club marched with it.
This club was complimented with doing
escort duty to the City Republican League,
Albert Gallatin, Marshal, which marched
430 strong, with 42 boys aiding in bearing
transparencies. The club was gotten up in
three days' time, and was composed of mer
chant?, mechanic?, artisans, professional
men, laboring men, manufacturers and other
citizens not in uniformed clubs. At the head
of the line was the President of the day,
Georse Cadwalader, and in the front ranks
marched Mayor Turner, Trustee Davis and j
other 1 rou.iuent citizen*, escorting Senator
Sarcent, Senator Booth, Congressman Pige,
C. N. Fox, G. G. Blanchard, A. L. Hart and
other of the speakers of the day. In this
line was a delegation marching in a body of
twelve men from the managerial, editorial,
business and typographic departments of the
Record-Ukiox office, that number being
all that could be spared from the
usual work of the night. This club of
representative citizens of Sacramento, over
400 strong, bore torches, hand- illuminators
ai.il a great number of transparencies, and
was the most significant body in the entire
procession, being representative, as it was,
of the sterling worth of the city. Some of
the mottoes on the transparencies were as
