Ing hel.1 in San Franciieo on the eronine of
lin 1fll. ..I. ... o
.-v .vw, u,u, reviews the situation inacal
Miginueu, eloquent manner:
Mr. Hamilton being loudly called for ca
Kriendfl nntl Mnw.rt7riM
iva.rSs.',lt Wft nnno'mcl to us that the
atioim Convention of our party bad done
the work of it high oIIIm, how diireront were
the feelings with which we received that an
nuuuceiniuit from thtw with which we receive
the announcement to-night. Then, amid the
conllict of war, the nation found iUelf little
in jKHitton to dUcuM those high principle
which alone belong to the conideratini of
the statesman nnd the Cabinet. Unfortu
nately for the hiotory of America, a nation
winch ought to have been at jKce, wearing
its crown of glory and flying the banner of
jirosfMinty, found busy making shrouds
lor its dead, and in Utnentatioms over it fal
Ion heroes. My countrymen, that hour has
paKl and with it the storm that sprang
lrom the cloud that gave it birth, and to-night,
as freemen, m brethren, wo meet together to
determine who shall be our next ruler, and
whether the Republic shall die or the white
man shall go under. ( G reat cheering.)
In 18C0 there was no man found upon the
floor of the Senate or upon the lloorof the
House of Heproeentativee, belonging to wlwt
evor party, that dared assert in the hearing
of his fellow countrymen that foul and loath
some heresy that we were not capable of self
government without the negro to help us.
At that time they went so far, and no farther.
Rons were those who wished to keep tmce
with civilization, and give him his freedom,
and release him from his bonrla. Hot there
was no father found so detreiiprato an to ay
to his son : ''I seek to inulie him your social
and political jcer." The war has decided in
this i4ue as it has in a thousand other. The
negro to nay. in the South, has thrown around
him, by a voluntary will of the people, the
protection of the CourU, and ben endowed
with all the right of citizenship, save that
highest, noblest and reserved right a partic
ipation in the Government of our fathers,
ltutitdootf not suit the purposes of thoe
men who waged this war, anil by that I mean
the who, in my humble judgment, thirty
years ago struck at the foundation of our
govermental strocture. They then hoped
and desired and prayed in secret for those
principles of equality. They succeeded in
18GI, and they tieceded in a subsequent
year by promises that the war should be
waed for the holy purpose of restoring the
Unionand none other; they succeeded in
bringing into their ranks thousands of the
best and purest of the land. Vo have seen
men, fathers, mi bands and um ni..Min
their former prejudice, willingly break away
from their former political associations, and
go with them aye, fellow such men as Ste
vens anu sumner, so long as they proclaimed
the Aug an their standard ami
tion as their fatth. The war has subsided,
and these meiij in the system which they
liaTcoujrhl to itjlniduee. awl hare partially
succeeded in doing, have diwlosed to the
amazement and astonlshtuent of the people,
the fact that they waged the war for the pur
pose of every on' equality, without distinc
tion of race or of color. We have now
reached that point In the history of this iwr
ty when we observe that thoe loyal heart
who joined thorn as they supposed in the faith
ful defense of the flag or our lathers, finding
they were mUled, are saying to their fanati
cal leaders: "No further can wego withycu
we turn to thaarlc We worship alone the
covonant, and the man that lifts it up, and
lie alone is our leader and guide." They met
at Chicago, and they declared that a revolu
tion bad been at work in our theory of gov
ernment, which astonished aod astounded
every man who has read their platform.
Thwy not only have declared for centraliza
tion, they declare themselves ready and wil
ling to take from the States their respective
rights and that under our Constitution, prin
ciples are applicable to one Stato tbt are not
equally applicable to another. Gentlemen,
the American tivople cannot bo persuaded
into such a heresy as this. The States arc
all equal or they are nothing. (Cheers.)
If the crimo of treason has bcon commit
ted, try thorn ami punish them by law ; but
you havo no right, under pretense of building
up the old Republic, tc violate its fundamen
tal principles. You hav no right to say to
fifteen or seventeen States of this Union,
"You are no longer our peers and equals;
that the whito men of the South, because
they are rebels, or have rebelled, arc not bet
tor than the negro, and wo will put you upon
an equality." It is that wholesale system
of punishment against which the best inter
ests of mankind revolt- Rut it does not stop
here. Wo upon the Pacific shore, whatover
may be our feelings for the persons there,
must turn aside to what tome may call local
and solfUh notions, for jou must remember
that the power that puts South Carolina, Vir
ginia and all the Southern States under negro
dominion, is the same power that will engraft
upon the National Congress this system of
Legislation. You must remember that tho
Legislature of California is two-fold in it
character. Under the Constitution of our
country local matters are loft to our own
management they arc controlled by our own
local government. Rut those National ques
tions, your land titles, your revenue, your
system of military, and everything that looks
to the National Government is regulated by
the Constitution of tho States in thoir com
bined capacity, and it is not alono a question
with me or you whether negro mitlrago lw
fixed upon a Southern State. As a local
question, it is one simply for tho Southern
States. Rut beyond that, tlmro is tha grave
question whether this -eytein of legislation,
t lis delmuebod systom shall find its way into
the National Councils. I say, therefore,
while in California we have tint nfii,.;0.
population of negroes to excite any prejudice,
yet it becomes our duty in the highest sense
ii me icrm to look to the preservation, am
glory and prosperity of this State by prevent
ing as a National system one fraugfcr witl
ignoruncc and rank with danger. It is not
my purpose to dwoli ujwn the National issues
that divide us. Those are questions that
come home to the hearts of everyone of you
I here is not to-night the humbl-st man In
the land, who, as ho sits at his own fireside
ree ing tho cin-cts of the tnxgatheror, and
looking upon th infant in the cradle, who
does not deplore the result of Ulack Repub
lican rule. (Cheers.) When you of the old
trill tltM Aa...M . f .(.it .
....w.ca Bvti-raj every no mat imuls a man
to the land of bis birth and invites you to
linger around the graves of your fathers,
when you severed that tic and resolved to
come to this country to take on a new citi
zenship it was in part because a solemn prom
ise md been made by freemen to freemen's
hod that the whito men of America should
alone rule its destinies; and I don't believe
there is a man In this vast awwmbly, whoc
heart beat! with a true, honest impulse for
his wife and children, who does not swear
that that creed shall be vindicated, and that
faith be kept unbroken. (Tremendous ati
plausc.) If they of the old countries have
reason to know that America has at last yiel
ded up this high prerogative to nature that
she. in her wild delinun has said that the
subordinate races shall be our equals, 1 don't
believe you have left one behind you a fath
er or a son, a wife, a daughteror a friend who
will dare to come and join you until this blight
is removed from your national escutcheon.
1 ou may hold out the promises of your gold
bearing mountains, of your rivers teeming
with diver, of your fertile valleys and plains
uvuviiiK iu me sweetest voice of imtntf ,
but you cannot tempt men to live undor the
black government of a negro. It bocornes
us, then, as men whoso happiness is insepar
ably connected with the country's weal, one
and all, in no spirit of bitterness but 5n th
solemn firmiMM of our manhood, to declare
that unto our faith we are faithful, ami we
mean to adhere to it. For one. so far as this
canvass is concerned. I trust It will be eleva
ted above personalities. AVe have presented
to us a candidate whose private life, even at
the ouUct of this nomination, has challenged
the admiration of his adversaries. I am glad
to And that so far tliey have elevated them
selves above the slang ami private abuse so
common in a political eontew. In the great
struggle we feel that a nation's freedom, hcr
grandeur and her unity demand that we shall
look to the covenant, and aroid the man who
seeks to violate it. I trust, therefore, as we
go forth in this ifcht, the greatest ever kuown
to the freemen of America, we will remcmlier
that we must not only be brave but just.
You roust remember tliat in the Republican
ranks to-day there arc men as faithful to the
Constitution of their fathers as anv I now
address. Thev seek again the faith once de-
iivereo to nie saints, awl we shall meet them
as brothers. Rittorne and asperity must be
laid aside. It docs not become vou or me to
lot'k at the past, bat to an imperiled future.
We have a country great in everything that
nature can grant boundless, I raav say, in
her iHwperity her vast extensive territory
waslied by two cean. Look ujon her lofty
mountains, jiercing the very skies, awl echo

Our foe Ls powerful. He is on the alert. He

being the only party which recognizes dis

for the purpose of making the white man
subordinate to the negro. I arraign that par
ty for having turned the South into a howl

North is taxed to keep thoro a standing army

burdened labor of the North, of the dead sol
dier who gave up his life for the preservation
of the Union, and in the numo of the services

the position of those who had been over
thrown by force of arms. When the radi
cals under the hypocritical name of "Union
men,' rebelled against the Constitution and
domed its authority . in ton States of the
Liilon, the very thing the South did, .Mr.
idair washed his hands, brushed the dust
from his feet, and turned his back upon them
forever. He is fighting to-day in the same
cause for which lie drew his sword a few
years ago. Ho fought those who rebelled
against the Constitution then; he is fighting
against them note. His views on the rocon
btrnetion measures of Congres are too clearly
ami forcibly expressed to leave any doubt in
the public mind. He is opposed to them
from Alpha to Omosa and insigts that, beini?
unconstitutional and ruinous, they are void
and must be overthrown. Ho adheres to the
declaration made by the immortal Douala,
when ho said, "I hold that this Government
was made on the white basis by white men,
for the benefit of white men and their pos
tenty forever. Further, I hold that the ne
gro is not capable of self-government,-1 Con
servatives can stand this pretty well. Frank
Rlair suits them admirably, but he will be

Nose Hlbeb There are two littk! arte
ries which supply the whole face with blood,
ono on each side; these branch off from the
main arteries on each side of the windpipe,
and running upward toward tho eye, pas
over the outside of the iaw-bone. about two-
thirds of the way back from the chin to the
angle of the jaw, undor the car. Each of
these arteries, of course, supplies just one
half the face, the nose being the dividing
line; The left nostril is supplied with blood
by the left artery, and the right nostril by
we ngni artery. tow, suppose your nose
bleeds from the right nostril; with the end
ot tlie right fore linger feel aloni; the outcr
edge of the right jaw until you feel the beat
ing ofathe artery directly under your finger,
the same as the pulse in your wrist, then
pres your finger hard upon it, thus getting
the little fellow in a tight place bctwocn your
finger and the jaw-bone; the result will lie
that not a drop of blood goes into that side
of your face while the pressure continues;
hence tho nose instantly stops bleeding for
want of blood to flow; continue the pressure
for five or ten minutes, ami the ruptured ves
sels in tho nose will by that time probably
contract so that when you let the blood into
thorn they will not leak. Weeding from a
cut or wound anywhere about tho face may
be stopped in the same way. The Creator
probably placed those artcriw as they are that
they might be controlled. Those to the
back of the head, arms and legs are all ar
ranged very conveniently for being controlled
in like manner.

crn States really need is the co-operation of
tho business men of the North to&liord them

The radical papers are drcalating the remark
of Thurlow Weed, that Frank P. Rlair "had
lived by stealing." It is very common for
thec gltl) speakers to make charges against
"tl? Rlair family,'" but it is easy to give the
lie to them. Thurlow Weed showed bis de
votion to tho country by furnishing upon
contract a number of rotten steamboats, up
on which he made a profit or half a million
dollars, and by Ieing a contract broker by
which he cleared during the war some two
million dollars. Frank Rlair showed how he
"stole from the Government" by first manu
mitting his slaves, and then risking his life as
a soldier while Weed was speculating.
Or the many beautiful sentiments express
ed by Dr. Chalmers, tlie following is one of
the best: ''The little I have seen in the world
and know of the history of tsaskisd teaches
me to look upon their errors in sorrow, not in
anger. When I take the history of one poor
heart that has sinned and suffered, and rep
resent to mywlf the struggles and tempta
tions it passed through tho brief pulsations
uf joy the tears of regret the feebleness
of purpose the scorn of the world that has
little charity the desolation of tho soul's
sanctuary, and the threatening voices within
health gone, happiness gone I would fain
leave the erring t-oul of my fellow-man with
him from whose bands it came"
Crmxc JL.XD Ccrwc Hat, The American
Stock Journal has the following:
One important matter connected with tho
stock business is the cutting and curing of
hay. Clover should be cut when about one
half of the heads have become brown. Some
farmers cut it when one-third of the heads
are brown ; but our experience justifies the
conclusion that one-half is the better time.
Timothy should be cut after the seed is form
ed and in milk ; somewhat hardened but not
fully ripe. We are decidedly opjioed to cut
ting timothy or any other grass whilo In
bloom. It takes a loncer time to cure and
more risk from changeable weather, a great
Jo- in weight, not so palatable to stock and
finally of less value in putting on flesh.
