With flushed laces, and pauling f irms dl vested

To the credit of the galleries be It said that

there was no disturbance, and but llltlo noise,

Galled up when one recognized the faoes so Ion

Convention. Not far li om htm sat the notorious
Bill MoMnllen, too well kuownto the general
publio to require description. He was very
quiet on Baiurday, and probably will be during
the emlre session, as his province is not to talk,
but to organize the rougher working material
of bis purl y for active service during acam-
paign. One ol ibe most notioeable men in the
Convention is General Napoleon lioniparte

HEri.Y OF CHIEF JUST1CB C II ASK.
In returning the foregoing letter to the gen
tleman to whom it was addressed, the Culef
Justice very clearly and tersely dennes his post
lion on the question of suffrage lu relation lo
national politics as follows:
"July 1. 1808. Please say to your friend that
he is entirely right es to my views ot suffrage
and Biate rlghtB. What I desire for the Houtn
t rn Btates Is pence and prosperity, wit U all dis-frtmcbh-eraents
and disabilities remove 1 and all
rlphts restored to all citizens, and it is my
opinion that these ends will be best secured by
according suffrage lo all clil.ens. Hut tne prac
tical disposition f the question of suffrage, as
well as ail other domesllu qustlous. Is for thd
pet. pie. of the Siaies themselves, not for out

trust that I Simula so act mat neltner tbe great

"Mr, DinrneU has very exactly iuuimed np

The Pape'a Coaslstorjr.
On June 22 tbe Pope held a secret consistory,
at which His Holiness nominated several
Bishops, arid afterwards pronounced two allo
cutions. Tbe first of these referred to the pub
lication of the bull convoking tbe General
Council, and Ibe other to religious affairs in
Anrtria. In the latter Hta Holiness deplored
and condemned as abominable the Civil Mir
risge law, and the other laws depriving tne
Church of control over schools, and estab'lsa
ing freedom of tbe press and liberty of c ju
science. The Pope declared these laws null and
void, censured ihelr authors, approvers, and
executors, praised the conduol or the Austrian
Bishops ss defenders of the Concordat, and
hoped that the Hungarian prelates would fol
low their example.

It is a momentous question whether any

it is a most dangerous tiling to tempt a nation
in this way. Given tbe promise of a vast c nu

riaruiy any people wnicn win uotsiuK tue dic

interests. The present poliiioal year will
decide It, will decide whelhey tbey support
piiuclples of kindness, large principles, prin
ciples ot honesty, orwbetber tbey respond lo
tne temptation already laid out for luem, to
become strong by grindiug tbe weak, audio
increase by aggression on others. Where
are the men who are truly great? I have beeu
cognizant, actively cogniztnt, of publio affairs
since 1810. From thai time to mis, two gene
rations nave risen and gone beyond. Of lueir
popular idols then aud now, it Is safe to say
tuhleveiy one of them has been made aud
is made, -simply by rioting himself In a
newspaper, and growing as mushrooms
do, on a dunghill. We grow more mushroom
men than any nath-n in the world. It
only requires ten years to place a man in
consplcuay, and to bury him with us. Tuese
be men of power, but not of iufluence. Tuey
represent so much physical force, but ihey la
fluence no one. Tne pnt bad such. It had
Hannibal. Alexander, Ciesar, Napoleon, Wel

they were powerful. But they died, aud to-day
(heir deeds and tbe memory of them leave not
a vestige of Influence behiud. We have suou
rbaracters in our time, at d we are invited to
honor them. It remains to be seen If the
Americans will spurn these creatures of clay,
tbeso massts of animalism, and rise to reward
ing men of moral principle, of Curistian char
acter, ol civil capacity suon a man as has stjod
by an idea through thick aud thin, and has
calmly waited till even bis foes vindicate his
virtue and bis courage, by adoplug his far
sighted, ever-held views as tnelrown,
In the evening, after tbe u-ual devotloaal
exercises, Mr, Beecuer selected as bis text tue
fifteenth verse of the twentieth charier of
Exodus: "Thou shall not steal."
He btgan by saying thai tnere was no other
text in the Bible that was better understood
and more universally broken ibaa iheonnne
had Just read. Tnere was no otner period in
our national history when it was orokon so
olten aud so openly as at tbe present oay. It

prised. The railway management of the coun
try was especially corrupt. He honestly be
lieved tbe majority of tbe railroads of the
Untied Btates lo be corruptly used for tbe pur
pose of enriching the mauagera at the expense
ol tbe stock holders, and that tbose concerned
in their management could be ca led nothing
else than corrupt. Bubordlnates were also dis
honest, aud railway companies lound it dun
cult In these days to obtain persons wuom Ihey
could trust. Mr. Beecuer alluded lo the govern
ment of tbeCiiy of New York aisome lengtti,
sa) ing it would be known as lOngasBodom aud
Gomorrah, aud for largely tbe same reasons.
The Legislature of New York was also corrupt,
and stealing was customary with botn piriles.
It was a question which was most ad-olt
in stealing, tne Democrats or Republicans;
whichever parly went up, it went to
steal and whichever party came
down came down to mutter beoause
Ihey hadn't a chance to steal. (Laughter.) Cor
ruption was alo me in the Legislature of tne
Btates of Peui sylvanla, Konsas, Knode luaod,
and Massachusetts, iu ihe latter B.aie atmosi as
bad as in tbe Btaleof New York. Aud now,
Bald tbe speaker, it is surl 'Usly proposed to
carry the nation bodllv Into this nn of thieves,

an attempt to make ibis naiioo a vast thieving
body. (Applause.) It is nol an aocusatlou that
csn ne laid against oue party or tne other.
Theie are thieves In both parties that are
clamorous for ibis national repudiation. This
is a crime that I think would not have its
parallel even among knaves. It takes a sort
of man smirched wltn patriot Ism aud varnished
with piety lo do the wickedest tniug. (Seusa
tlou). A pickpocket would not steal the modi
cine away from a physlclau who was healing
his own mother. But, wulle men in the nation's
extremity aud peril lent their aid, it la now
proposed that we shall pick: their pockets aud
steal from luem. It is a thing for which there
were uo titles monstrous enough. It is a thing
that every man who has a oousuienoe or a par
tloieof honor ought to hiss at and spew at. It
Is a shame thai tbe Church that Is so loud
against dancing aud oard-playlng, has not a
wuiu iu auy against national rouuery. national
dishonor, and national rtlahnnealv.

clearly Implied iu tne resolution that Improper
means were employed to procure the consent of
the Indians is, 1 believe, utterly without foun
dation iu facts. I am curiam that not the
slightest threat or promise was made by
any one to attain the consent of any one of
the chiefs or headinm, all of wuoui freely
aud eagerly sinned the treaty publicly
In open council, witu every apparent
manifestat ion of satisfaction wi h its provislous.
Indeed, not only were those who i-ignei tne

far as we bad means ot Judging, seemed also
sai.lhtied with them As this treaty has beea

as on ray own behalf, aud on behalf of my col
leagues, I most positively aud emphatically
deny that any improper means were emplovel
by us to be employed by others to obtain the
consent of tbe O.sage chlels and heai man, or
any of them, to Ibe said treaty; as we are oon
scioiis that lu making sid treaty we have d ne
our duty, and done It wortnlly aud well,
having in view the best Interests of the
Indians, of the people of Kansas, and of to.9
geneial publio of the United Slates. As our
good fame and oftloial reputation, which
are to nn above all price, are deeply Involved, I,
therefore, appeal through you to your honor
able commltee to investigate most searoblngly
snd thoroughly the whole h lstory of the nego
tiation of 1 his treaty, and all tbe circumstances
connected with tbe transaction, and repot t
lully tbe conclusions of your Judgment, to the
end that neither the reputation of otlloers of
