Wheu I was a yonng roan in a for
eign country we were fighting in Mex
ico a a place called Buena Vitti (or
Fair View, which is the meaning of it
in the English language). We could
see away up the valley; we had got
that far into the Mexican country in
our advance npon the Mexican cap
ital. We fatd about 4000 eflective
men and were aurronnded by the
army of one of the moat celebrated
generals ol the Mexican government,
Gen. Hants Ana, who thought it
would be eaxy work with bis twenty
odd thousand men, inclosing ns in
every direction, to capture the little
band of American invaders. I re
member in that fight that one of our
roirnientH, overpowered by a ferocious
charge, a brave and gallant regiment,
commanded by Ool. Bowles, of Indi
ana, left the field, and 1 remember at
that critical time that we were forming
a line to resist the attack of the Mexi
can lancers. We were in a critical
condition indeed. I saw some soldiers
away in the valley who were com
ing toward oar rear, and others com
ing toward us in every direction. Sud
denly we found that we were eur
founded. Shortly afterward I beard
the clear ring of a rille, then a volley,
then another. I turned to my regi
mental colonel, who died that day
Col. Clay, son of the great Clay and
asked, ''Who is that?" His reply
was, "It is JefTrson Dis with the
Mississippi Rifles," and I remember
how Minvone and his lancers re
treated before the powerful volleys of
the Mississippi Itifles, commanded by
Col. Davis, and I remember when
they left the field a little afterward we
were fearfully engaged in a great con
test to liberate the Great Geo. Hard
ing of Illinois, who bad gone too fir in
a charg, following fie retreating
Mexicans, and bad been surrounded.
Oar colonel, McKee, fell deal and
was carried off the field; our lieutenant-colonel,
Henry Clay, was killed
but victory was ours. I remember
after the battle we brought the dead
bodies and laid them down before
Gen. Taylor's matquee, and there
wept over oar dead, lor Kentucxy was
almost literally mawacred in that
fight. While mourning over our dead.
with Hearts lull and beating, out itui
feeling pride in the result, for glorious
victory was ours, I remember hearing
Gen. Taylor say to bis adjutant-general,
Col. BliiH, to go and call Jefferson
Davis to come to bin. He came at
once,while we were etindlng there, and
Gen. Taylor met him. That was the
nrsttime 1 bad ever seen Mr. uavts.
Gen. Taylor said to him: "My daugh
ter is a better jadga ot men than lam.
Henceforth your ga'lant conduct in
saving our ainiy makes you entitled t)
be my son, and 1 lorgtve you."
I understood there had been a difli
culty about a marriage. But Davis
was then considered a patriot. Davis
was then considered a hero, and every
body acknowledged and history rck
nonledgea the fact that that gallant
man at that particular critical moment
saved our army, saved us from sur
render. And what effect it bad ODon
the war all men conversant with his
tory know. At that time Davis, that
great man, utoad with the' Mlrsisslppi
it nas ana turned toe tide ol victory
against a superior, overwhelming force,
with h'S heart beating (or the success
of the American cause, a lover of the
union, a lover of the nag. Are we to
say to him that because you did wrong
In after years, because you attempted
to revolutionise our government and
divide our country and make two sec
tions of it, we will put on the record
that ws owe you a spite, tbat you can
never be forgiven?
I, sir, have nothing to forgive in Jef
ferson Davis. He did as an honett
man what he believed to be right.
But I look upon him not as Davis, the
President of the Southern Confedera
cy, for I forgive all that. I put it be
hind me when the war was over. I
did not wait, as I heard a distinguished
gentleman ray in the Fits John Potter
debate, I did not wait ten years for
cooling time. God; knows I was cool
enough when the war was over.
Laughter. When it was all over I
forgave the men we had been fighting.
I have looked upon Jefferson Davis as
a great man, who saved our army in
Mexico and who ssved the country.
Now, you tell me I ongbt to agree to
say with you that I never forgive and
never forget that there Is one place on
earth as well is another region where
forgiveness never comes, and that in
the American Congress. Laughter.
I went to say to gentlemen who feel
in tbat way that the people are ahead
of you. 1 want to ssy truthfully, can
didly and kindly to my distinguished
friend the chairman of our committee
thatthe people have forgiven Jcfferron
Davis. lie is now citizen, paying
taxes, obedient to the government,
honoring and loving it, although he
does not ask an olllce, although be
does not ask a pension. It is for you
and your children that I speak more
than for Jefferson Davis. He is but
one man. He will be remembered by
every man who was in the Texan war
as one who loved his country and as a
gallant man. And I want to say to
you bere and now that it is lor your
sakes I ask that you shall not put on
the records of the American Congress
a decUia'.ion of spite; that you shall
not legislate for vengeance, but that
you will show that you legislate as
irue patriots and at true statesmen
ought to legislate upon high and
elevated plane looking to the future
glory and the future honor ol our
country as blessing after blessing will

and the company refused to grant tbo

offered the boys$l 15 a day, and told
them, if they chose, they could all go
back to work at that figure. Some of
them went to work and others re
fused. Ijist night, as the boys who
were at work woro on their way homo
from the shop they were waylaid by

Nkw Yokk, March 4. Contrary to
report, none of the horse-ear lines of
this city "tied up" this morning ex
copt the Dry Dock line. All tho other
lines art' running as usual. The strike
of tho employes on tho Dry Dock sur-
lnco null and continued unchanged
this morning. About 1000 of the
strikers were congregated abont the
stable and office, but the presence of
a lanro force of police kept them 111
order. The police cleannl the street
in front of the office and kept the
crowd in continual motion. Humors
prevailed of threatening strikes on
other street-car lines, but so far none
have taken place. It is proposed some
time during tho day to run a car over
the Dry Dock route.
The reserve police force of all pre
cincts below Fourteenth street was de
tailed at the Grand street car stable
early this morning. About I !:;!()
o'clock l'olico Superintendent Murray
visited tho scene, ami an hour later he
issued an order calling tho remaining
policemen on reserve in tho station
houses above Fourteenth street to re
inforce the men already at the stables.
The additional men increased the
numlicron bund to (WO. A car was
started out of the stable nlsmt noon.
Its apoaranoe was hailed with de
rision by the hundreds ol men on
the street. l'olico Inspector Steers
mounted tho platform beside tho
Iriver and tho car started. Tho po
lice cleared the way until lcwis street
was reached, where tbo first obstruc
tion was met iu tho shape of a car of
the Forty-second street line, which
bad leon placed across the track. Be
hind it were two trucks, and a little
wav lievoiitl a load of coal had been
dumped on the track. Another car of
the r'orty-secoml street line came
along, drove oil a pile of coal and was
also turnetl across tho track. Tho
strikers greeted this with cheers.
They sprang into tho street, and every
wniron that camo alonir was captured
and turnetl across the track, the liorses
unhitched and driven away.
The police flourished their clubs,
gave orders and issued throats alter
nately, but 111 vain, there was no
hope, and the polieo were powerless to
act. bile the police were standing
looking at the scene, gangs of men
rushed 11)0111;, adding additional ob
structions on the track. At Cannon
street a wagon was turned upside down
on tho rails. At l,oerick street a car
of the Forty-second Street lino was
toppled over and fell with a crash on
the track, mx cars 111 an woremrneti
across the track, and the side streets
were blocked with wagons waiting
their turn. Two beer trucks had their
wheels taken off ami foil across the
tracks, and at a point on F'jist Broad
way a load ol coal was nuiniHHi on me
track. At another point the switch
iilnli'K were taken nwsv. and further
on a pile of bricks and Imilding poles
lay.in the tracK.
1 he contest was practically over nt
this point, and orders were issued to
stmt hack to the stable. The strikers
wore good naturod ami dialled the
policemen, but went about their work
111 11 wav that showed organization.
At Mangm street the strikers tor up
several curbstones and placed them on
the track. Another attempt will be
made to start a car later this after
noon. The Hoard of l'olico to day re
ceived a letter from tbo railroad com

their employes and property.
