not think the organization of any third party
is wise, or can work any practical good to tho
great causo in which we are engaged. In the
very nature of things, when great principles
are at stake, there are, and there can be, but
two effective political parties. "He that if

man is compelled to act. What, then,'is the

great and unpardonable wrong for which the
Radical jiarty is now arraigned and should be
overthrown? It is substantially this: In
violation of the Constitution in violation of
pledges made and often repeated, Irom the

war; pledge to the North to get men and
inaney; pledges especially made to the Dem
ocracy to get their supjiort in the Held, and
in the elections; pledge made to the tkuth
to induce them to lay down their anna and
to renw their allegiance; and pledges to
foreign power to prevent intervention in

to convict him, in order to place in the Ex

to consummate that gigantic wrong against
the Constitution, against our plighted faith,
against civilization, and against our own race

which supported Lincoln in 1801, but which,
in consequencn of the great wrong nlnivo
mentionod, was ready to sever itself from the
Radical army under General Grant; and
there was the Conservative Republican Corps,
of which you are plea.-cd to speak of me as a
loadur. who, for the same reasons, were ready
to join the Grand Army, and do all in their
power to bring success to our cause. The two
last are tho recruiting corps. They hold the
balance of jiower. As a matter of policy, had
the first been given to a chief of the ono or
of the other, it would have made our victory
more easy, if not more certain. Everybody
knows that the result of this contest is to
depend upon tho important question whether

coming election, were I to hesitate in its can

ray own record, b:st commit a crime against
my country. I never aspired to the Presi
dency on account of myself. I never sought
its d-'ubtful honors and certain labors and re
sponsibilities merely for tht position. My
own wish was to promote, if 1 could, the
good of the country, and to rebuke the spirit
of revolution which had invaded every sacred
precinct of liberty. Vt'hen, therefore, you
pronounced the statement in question false,
you did exactly right. Principles and not
men, is the motto for the rugged crisis in
which we are now struggling. Had I been
math the Presidential nominee I should have
considered it a triumph, not to me, but to
the principles which I had proclaimed and
pnvjticed. Rut shall I cease to revere thoe
principles because by the action of mutual
jmlitieal friend another ben appointed
to put them in execution? Never! never!!
These, sir, arc my sentiments, whatever
interested parties may say to tho contrary,
and I desire that all may know ami under
stand them. I shall ever hold in grateful
remembrance the faithful friends, hailing from
every section of the Union, who preferred me
by their votes and other expressions of con
fidence, both in and out of the Convention,
and shall do them all the justice to believe
they were governed by patriotic motives;
that they did not propoc simply to aggran
dize my personal fortune, but to save their
country through me, and that they will not

for next year untrue ? We ask Republicans
to read the estimates for the future, for they
show the profligacy of thu past. If S50,
000,000 of the money paid for military, naval
and other expenses had been used to pay the
debt, to-tlay the credit of tho United States
would have been as eood as tlmt of Great
Britain. Thi rapid payment, and the proof
it would havo given of good faith, would
have earned tue national credit to the highest

more in tho hands of holders, and yet the
tax-payer would seem better off, for the cost
of Government would be cut down as its
credit rose, n e could jiut out new bonds,
bearing loss intcrcsl, which would not have
the odious exemption from taxation. Our
debt would havo been lam, our interest lower,
and our taxes reduced. The hours of labor
could be shortened. What now lengthens
the time of toil f If wo were free from any
form of taxation, direct or indirect, six hours
of work would earn as much as ten doe now.
One hour more of work ought to meet the
laborer's share of the cost of government, an
other hour should pay his share of the na

Presenting somewhat the form of an'

seven thousand square miles, alfording the

rocks and hill-sides are sculptured with signs
of an igneous origin, while the whole island
is still the sport of convulsion. The ground
trembles with the throes of the earthquake;
