were chosen. Nor was your nomination due to
accident, or the result of hasty or inconsiderate
deliberation It indicated rather that you pos
sessed in a moie eminent degree those peculiar
qualities which commend you to the people's
favor. In the hour of our country's peril you
cheerfully accepted a humble position in the
army, went where your country most needed
you, and by long and faithful service rose to
higher commands and assumed graver respon
sibilities. Elected to the United States Sen

MH, CHAIRMAN AND GENTLEMEN O THE
COMMITTEE: The oftieUl notice which you have
iirought of the nomination conferred upon me
by the Republican National convention, re
cently in session at Chicago, excites emotions
of a prCound though of a somewhat conflicting
'chaiacter. That after full deliberation and free
consultation the representatives of the Repub

concluded hat the great principles enunciated
in the platform adopted by the convention
could be in some measure safely confided to
my care is an honor of which I am deely sens
ble and for which I am grateful. 1 do not
.assume or believe that this choice implies that
the convention found in mo any pre-eminent flt
fiess or exceptional fidelity to the principles ot
government to which we aie mutually pledged.
My satisfaction with the result would be alto*
gether spoiled if that result had been reached
by any unworthy methods or by a disparage

our fellow-citizens and the g^cious favor ol
God, we will confidently submit our cituse to
the arbitrament of a free ballot. The ey you
have chosen for this visit suggests np
thoughts that are not in harmony w.th the occa

the light of the Declaration of Independence.
It has lifted the shaft of patriotism up on the
foundation laid at Bunker Hill. It has madje

Seventy-first, Seventy-second, Seventy
third and Seventy-fourth New Yoi regu
lars, met at the site oi the hi igad 3 monu
ment and held the dedicatory exercises.
At 9:30 o'clock the members of the

third, Sixty-ninth and Eighty-eighth Ne
York Infantry, marched to the Catholic
Church where requiem mass for those
who fell in the battle was celebrated by

In addition to these memorials there

At 2 o'clock the corner-stone oi the Me
morial Church of the Prince of Peace" was
formally laid in the presents of thousands
of people. The question of tihe creation of
this edifice has been agitated for a number
of years, and one of tn I or tuer Episcopal
rectors collected a quantity oi stone in
scribed with either the names o* donators
or that of some comrade or friend who had
fallen in the rebellion. These will be
placed in the inside of the church tower.
Bishop Howe, of the Central diocese of the
Episcopal church, laid the corner-stone.
At 3 o'clock the Society of the Innv

grand procession moved from Center
square to the rostrum in the National Cem
etery, where the exercises ot reunion be
tween the blue and the grav took place.
On the rostrum the front row of chairs
was occupied by General Sickles, General
Beaver and General Robinsun (ail with
crutches). General Gordon, ot Georgia,
General Graham, General But tern eld and
Rev. Dr. Valentine, of the Southern Theo
logical seminary. A 3 o'clock General
Robinson introduced General Sickles as
the presiding officer. The old commander
of the left corps addressed the tarong, say
ing among other things:
"Among the hundreds of memoval structures
on this field there is not ont- beai ing JM inscrip
tion that wounds the susceptilnl ties 6f an hon
orable and gallant foe. This meeting is an his
torical event. We dedicate here on this battle
field to-day an altar sacred to peace and tran
quility and union. We sow the ^eds of friend
ship between communities and State and pop
ulation once hostile and nu\. reconciled. Our
civil war was not a conspiracy against
a ruler it was not the plot oi a soldier to oust
a r.val from power it was not a prqnuncia
mento. The conflict of '61-5 WAS a war of in
stitutions and systems and poln'cs. It was a
revolution ranking in importance with the
Fiench revolution of the eighteenth century
and with the English revolution of tlif seven
teenth, universal in the bendheeut influence
upon the destinies of tl is countrj, and in
effaceable in the footprints made in the path
oi our National progress."
When Governor Gordon appeared before
the great crowd that filled the vast lawn
before the rostrum the cheers and hur
rahs were almost deaf N* ai.d through
out his speech he was L.c r, u^ted In cries
of "Good," "Hurrah," and other expres
sions of pleasure and approval such as
must have been flattering in the extreme
to Georgia's chief executive. In the course
of his speech he said:
Of all the martial witnesses, the one which
is perhaps more characterise of the truly
brave is the virtue of magnanimity. My fair
est earldom would I give to bid Clan Alpine's
chieftain live,' was the noble sentiment
attr.buted to Scotland's magnanimous
monarch, a lie &tooO gay rig into
the face of his slam antagonist That
sentiment, immortalized by Sr on in rus musi

the name ot Scotland Kirs? with those of

Governor Beaver, who i\as inti-oduced
by Governor Gordon, was received not less
enthusiastically than la predecessor, and
he was ajso brokeD in upoiu by the hearty
cries of the spectators. Hi speech was in
the same vein that marked the others.

from catarrh for three years. At time? I could

could not breathe through the nostrils. I
thought nothing could be done for me. Luck
