Furl it ! for the hands that gasped it,
And the hearts that fo*dly 3lasped It,
Cold and dead, are lying low;
And that banner-it Is trailing I
While around it sounds the walling,
Of its people in their woe.
For, though conquered, they adore it,

Furl that banner, true 'tis'goy,

And 'twill live in song and story,
Though its'folds are in the dust;
For its name on brightest pages,
Penned by poets and by Rages

For it droops above th, tind

to drive me from it. I Loud and pro.

self upon that broad platform, I have not

saiW on a previous occitsion, and repeat
it now, that all that was necessary in
this great struggle against tyranny and
despotism was that the struggle should
be sufficiently audible for the Amer'can
people to hear and properly understand.
They did hear, and looking on and see
ing what the contestants were, and what
the struggle was about, determined that
they would settle this question on the
side of tha Constitution and of principle.
I proclaim here, to day, as I have no
previous occasions, that my faith is in
great mass of the people. In the dark.
est hour of thio struggle, when the clouds
seemed to be most lowering, my faith,
instead of giving away, loomed up
through the cloud, beyond which I saw
that all would be well in the end.
My countrymen, we all know that
tyranny and despotism, in the language
of Thomas Jefferson, can be exercised
and exerted more effectually by the
many than the one. We have seen a
.0ongress gradually encroach step by
step, and violate day after day and
month sfter month, cons.itutional rights
and the fundamental principles oF the
Gonernment. We have aeon a Con
gress that seemed to forget. that there
was a limit t'o the sphere and scope of
legislation. We have seen a Congress
in a mmnotify atssume to exercise power
which, it allowed to be carried, would
result in despotism or monsarehy itself.
This is truth, and bdcause others as well
as-myself have seen proper to appeal to
the patriotisni and republican feeling of
the fo'untry, we have been denouned mn

At the conclusion of the President's
remarks three eiithisiastic cheers were
giv'en for Andrew Johnson. and three
more for General Grant. Tli - President
then took a seat near the door opening
into the Hall, with General Grant by
his side, where, as the gentlemen of the
Committee and members of tihe Conven
tion passed or.t, lie grasped each by the
hand, and had a smile or a cheering
word for all; after which they passed on
to take General Grant by the hand.

An exchango thinks the iogislatire
of Alabama will h:ave to make a liw
to tit that case, which Ie calls one of
"internal sligeestions and bias of juris
prudence." Just so.

Secretary MeCul(och on the Finances.
Secretary MeCllech, being on a recent
visit to his native New England, was invit
ed to dinl with the solid men of Boston.
The lettef' failed t6 reach him till after his
return t Washington;- boit on the 18th in
stant he responded', sh')*ing why lie 0oald
not accept, and speaking of the natiofial'
finances as follows :
"Although it was hoped that crc this the
cutrency of the country would have been
brought nearer to the specie stahdard, I
am sure'the people have cause for congratu-'
lation that.dur finatices aro in so healthy a
condition as they are.
"Since March, 1865, the *ar has been
brought to a' iticcesstul conclusion; im
inense arnics have been disbanded; every
soldier has been paid before being mustered
out of the service; all maturing obligations
of the Government have been satisfactorily
provided'for,- while the iational debt is
nearly $260,000,000'less' than estimated it
would be at the present' time, and the re-'
duction of it has averaged, for the past
year, more than $10,000,000 per month.
If no other nation evet- relled bp a' debtso
rapidly, none certainly ever cGinnienodd the
reduction of its debts so soon after its cre
ation. If our currency is' depreciated, we
have so far escaped tho fnancial troubles
that usually occur among nations at the
close of expensive wars, and which there
was reason to apprehend would'happen to
us at the termiration of the grfat war in
which we have been engaged. If the bdsi.
ness of the country is conducted, din a
changing and uncertain basis, it has been'
subjected to no severe revulsions. If our
taxes are heavy, our resources are almost
unlimited, while the disposition of tif #so
ple to bear cheerfully their burdens is a
surprise even to those who have the great
est confidence in the honor of good faith of
a free people. In my opinion, the people
of the United States are to make republi
canisni illustrious among tbe nations by es.
tablishing the fact that the securities of a
republican Government. are the safest of all
securities, and that the people who impose
taxes upon themselves are the most jealous
of their na0onal credit..
I do not, however, disguise the fact that
great 'Inancial difficulties are still to be
overcome; that our pfesent prosperity is
rather apparent than real; tfat we are meia
are, In fact, exposed te all the dangers
which attend an inflated and irredeemable
c,irrency, which diminishes labor-thu true
source of national *ealth--and stimulates
speculations and extravagance, whieh Ied
invariably to thriftlessness r.d demorali
zation Before the country becomes again
reily prosperous. the specie standard must
be restored, prices reduced, industry stimu
lated, the protlucts of the country increas
ed, the balanceo of;trade between the United
States and other nations cease to be against
us-all the great interests pf the country
cared for and protected by wise and impar
tial legislation, and all sections of the coun.
try ro be brought again into harmonious
and practical relations wfth the General
That the country will be again thus real
ly prosperous is as certain as anything in
Ihe future, That it should be so at at, ear
ly day, and that, too, without a financial cri
sis, it is only necessary that there shoutd
he proper legislation by Cengress, economy
in the public expenditures, and fidlelity on
the part of those- who are entrusted- wita
