[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE NE Wi. ]
CHARLOTTE, N. C., Joly 29.
As the canvass in North Carolus draws to
its close the interest Intensifies, and the great
mass meeting to-day at this place has fur?
nished the culmination thuB far ot the enthusi?
asm in this State for Greeley and Brown.
Business ot all kinds ls almost entirely sus?
pended, and all classes of tbe population have
flocked to the oak grove, where the meeting
ls being held. The regular and special trains
came heavily loaded, and from the earliest
hours the neighboring localities have poured
Into the city their quotas of thousands. The
speakers'platform ls gracefully festooned with
flags and evergreens, and prominent among
the decorations are portraits of the Liberal
chiefs, Greeley and Brown. Promptly at ll
o'clock. the speakers ascended the stand,
amid the music of the bands and tbe enthusi?
astic applause of the Immense audience,
which included hundreds of ladles.
Mr. Armistead Barwell, president of the
Charlotte Greeley Club, opened the meeting.
He welcomed the great senator from Missouri,
and, with similar pride, he welcomed among
his people another noble representative o? the
Liberal canse, the Governor of Virginia.
[Great cheering.] He said that he was com?
pelled to announce, with regret, their disap?
pointment in the absence of another honored
repr?sentative of the Sooth, whose ill health
had prevented his attendance, and be read the
following dispatch from the Hon. M. P. O'Con?
nor, o? Charleston, S. C.:
CHARLESTON, S. C., July 27.
To Eon. J. Phillips, Chairman Committee of
Arrangements, Charlotte. JV. C.:
lam too unwell to leave. With you in spirit,
If not In body. South Carolina awaits the an?
nouncement of victory from North Carolina to
redeem your State and ultimately tbe whole
country. M. P. O'CONNOR.
Governor Walker was then presented to the
meeting and was. received with renewed ap?
plause. The greeting he received, he said,
was another evidence of the bond ol union be?
tween Virginia and the people of the Old
North State. The hearts of all true men In
Virginia are thoroughly enlisted for the suc?
cess of their neighbor and sister State in this
her great straggle for liberty and reform.
The contest of Thursday next would be one of
great national importance, but to North Caro?
linians it would be of Immediate and far more
serions moment, since lt must decide the
fate of their Commonwealth lor years to come
and perhaps for all the future. This party,
styling itself Republican, bsd been the greater
pSrt of the time since the close of the war In
control of the State government. Their
record was made np in the minds of every
voter. Upon that let them be tried and upon i
that let the verdict be given when the polis
open on Thursday. But, said the Governor,'
what party, what men sensible to shame can
come before an enlightened community and ,
with such a record ask to be continued in pow- I
- er? What party ls responsible for the condition f
ot North Carolina to-day-for its dishonored ]
administration, its blasted credit, untarnished i
till now for a hundred years-for the wide- ?
spread corruption, tits enormous taxes, the ?
false imprisonment and ruthless torture of in- ?
nocen: citizens ' The Radical Slate Govern- I
mentis notoriously inefficient; lt lacked the j
energy, nerve and, perhaps, the disposition to ;
protect its people In their rights of person and i
property, and then the people were compelled '
to exercise the God-given right of self-protec- ,
tion. Thus, in the speaker's opinion, the Ku- :
Klux originated, In the failure of the State
Governments to afford their citizens due pro?
tection-the citizens, like the Vigilants of San
Francisco, protected themselves. The. Vigi?
lants, remarked tbe Governor, were never de?
nounced as Kn-Klux; the United States did
not tend its troops to shoot or arrest and ira?
prVcu them. I hope, said the speaker, when
the Government of Virginia fails in its duty to
the people, that the people will assume the
government themselves. The Governor be?
lieved that the Radical aggressions arose out
ol an organized scheme, participated In by all
theBadlcalState Governments of "he South
and Northern Radicals, to stir up the people
to acts of violence, which might offer a pretext
for military invasion, the purpose being to i
radicalize every Southern State. Now will the
whole country watch with intense interest the
verdict of North Carolina on Thursday next,
whether her people will se up and cast off
this body ot corruption, or continue to grovel j
In the dust under the heels o? Badlcal dema?
gogues and petty despots. North Carolina has
been canvassed in harmony with the great
liberal movement., which aa a national move
i merjt owed Its origin to the oppression o? the
Southern States. It will become the people of
North Carolina to use their best efforts In be?
halt of thia movement, since its great object
ls the deliverance ol' the South. In criticising
the Presidential career of Grant, the Gover?
nor promised at some future time to nniold a
t? Je connected with his own dealings with that
person which would awaken the astonishment
o? all, and especially of yon, slr, said the
speaker, turning to Mr. Schurz. The Gover?
nor proceeded at some length in a strain of
exhortation, and closed amid great applause.
Senator Schnrz was then introduced and re?
ceived bv the audience with every demonstra?
tion o? enthusiasm. His speech was, lb a great
measure, a repetition of the views BO forcibly
expressed by him at Greensboro', [and which
ls i nil y reported below.-ED.] The speaker
then reviewed the Greensboro' speech o? Mr.
BoatwelL He appealed to the people present
to know if the secretary did them Justice when
he charged them with opposition to Immigra?
tion, common school education and general
progress. [Loud cries of "No, no."] The
senator said how debased muet be a heart
Which can protest, as Mr. Boutwell did, against
a restoration of peace and goodwill between
former enemies. In concluding his remarks,
Mr. Schnrz gave Borne excellent words oi ad?
vice to the young men ot the South, and o?
caution to the negroes. He compared the
Liberal party to that other which we see
gloomily stirring the ashes of old feuds and
to see if they cannot find a spark to fan Into a
flame. In the middle of his speech consider?
able disturbance was caused by the breaking
out of a fire in a new and fine house near by,
belonging to Mr. T, 8. Gray. A negro was
seen to run out o? the house, and lt is evident
that it was a preconcerted act of the negroes to
disturb or break up the meeting. The distur?
bance was such that Mr. Schurz took his seat
and was unable to resume for half an hour.
By close investigation among the colored
people lt bas been discovered that the negro
Incendiary went deliberately and maliciously
to set fire to the house, which was unoccupied,
after declaring to some of his comrades that
he reckoned if white men could burn and whip
and hang, negroes had a right to" do It too. To
others he told his intention to break up that
damned Conservative meeting one way or
another. The Incendiary has fled the town;
but he ls known, and has already been tracked
for some distance. The town ls full of Idle ne?
groes; they block up the streets, are very
noisy and aggressive, and have been making
all sorts of disturbances during the day. No?
body knows why they are here. There has
been no call for a Radical meeting. The
white people here submit to these outrages
and the insolence of the hordes of negroes
with a remarkable degree of quietness.

GREENSBORO', N. C.. July 27.
Senator Schurz has at last Bpok?n in North.
Carolina. His presence had been so frequently
promised before without his making bis ap?
pearance that the crowd which gathered to
hear him to-day, though great, was not so
large by several hundreds as lt would have
been had there been a certainty of his com?
ing. Toe Interest In the matter was shown,
however, not alone by the arrivals ot persons
from distant parts ol the State on the faith of
the announcement in the papers, but also by
the telegrams received here from all points in?
quiring his whereabouts. Unfortunately, the
tidings that he was actually en route did not
come uniil late this morning, and the anxious
crowds In Raleigh, Wilmington and elsewhere
could Lot get here In time. As lt was, though,
his audience was numbered by thousands, and
embraced representatives of all Bhades of po?
litical opinions, and all class?e of the popula?
ARRIVAL OF THE DISTINGUISHED MISSOURIAN.
Senator Schurz arrived on the 3.30 train,
having left New York yesterday afternoon.
He was met at Reldsvllle by Mayor Sloan and
a committee of citizens, and when he stepped
from the cars to the depot platform he waa
greeted by a large concourse of persons. The
band played Inspiring aira, aud there was a
general enthusiasm. General Schurz _was
placed In a carriage and driven rapidly to the
Benbow House, where he dined, and a few
minutes afterwards met the crowd assembled
in a grove on the outskirts ot the town to
hear him speak. His reception here also was
most enthusiastic. He was introduced by
Colonel John A Gllmer, who complimented
bim as one of the foremost champions of the
rights of man.
SPEECH OF GENERAL SCHUBZ.
General Schurz commenced by saying that
he bad hardly ever appeared before an au?
dience with a greater consciousness of being
unable to fulfil Its expectations, wear* sd as he
was by four days of travel, witn hardly a mo?
ment's rest aud hardly able to stand or think.
He felt unusually Trass ed. Wnat he had
to say was to be ?poucu without preparation,
save a lew notes made while at dinner a few
He then spoke substantially as follows:
HIS POLITICAL ANTECEDENTS.
I belong, fellow-citizens, to that political
ichooi which most of you knew, but did not
ove, before the war as anti-slavery men. I
Marted out with the Republican party, and my
political life has been wholly devoted lo the
idvocacy of Its principles. All my energies
.ave been given to the work of carrying its
.earlLng ideas into practical life; fori have sin?
cerely desired that all slavery should disappear
from our beloved land-the land of my
"option-and all persons should enjoy io the
lullest extent the blessings of a republican
form of government. In the service of these
ideas I have stood, so far, In the ranks of the
Republican party, and these are my principles
to-day. If I am not fighting In their ranks lt
ls their fault, not mine.
It ls my ardent wish that every man should
breathe tne free air of beaven as a freeman,
and because this Is my desire I stand here to?
day arrayed against many of my old comrades.
The Republican party was organized, I must
remind jou. In the first place, to prevent the
extensi?n ot slavery in the Territories of the
United States. That accomplished, the war
began, and the standard was raised higher.
It was demanded that slavery should be abol?
ished. The war closed, slavery was abolished,
and, in order to proieot the emancipated race
In the enjoyment ot their new rights, as a
logical necessity, tbe right of suffrage was
given them. Tbe support of all these meas?
ures was with the Republican party, and I
went further. I endorsed the reconstruction
policy or the Republican party on tbe ground
that revolutionary measures are necessary in
revolutionary limes. But these things accom?
plished, and the logical results ot the war
being incorporated lu the constitution of the
United States, new questions arose.
The political eye sweeping a larger horizon
sought to compass the means by which we
might be made a reunited nation. We had
delivered the blacks, and lt ~malned with us
to effect the highest deliverance for the
whites-even those who were lately In rebel?
lion. We thought the time had come when
every man Norm and South should feel him?
self a full citizen of this Republic, and look
upon the Stars and Stripes not as A symbol of
disgrace and conquest, but of iretaom and
equal rights to be enjoyed by all of us. [Ap?
DIVISION IN THE RANKS.
Then it was that those ol us who were true
Republicans, and valued principles above par?
ty power, raised the flag of universal amnesty
and impartial suffrage, and our great and good
standard-bearer, Horace Greeley, [cheers,J
spoke the words, "Let all people be freemen
again, and let everybody vote for whomsoever
he please." [Applause.] Organizations long
In power learn to steai without punishment
and rob without vengeance. Thus lt was tbat
many of the leaders aud fr great many of the
masses of the Republican partyjrelused to en?
list under our banner. Impartial suffrage,
but not universal amnesty, they said.
Impartial suffrage? Yes; because lt will
strengthen our party. Universal amnesty?
No; because lc will strengthen our oppo?
nents. But this was not the only reason why
fora while we fought the battle alone. It was
desired not only to preserve bnt to enlarge
their powers. Advantage was taken of cer?
tain disorders In the South to make excuse for
the conlerrlng ot extraordinary powers on the
Executive. There had been disorders; let us
not forget that there bad been persecution for
OTJ!n lou's sake, and the report of them aroused
tbe fears and the sympathies of people at the
North. But Borne of us who saw tbe danger,
saw also the danger of protecting the rights
of a few at the expense of the liberty
of a whole people. We thought that local
sell-government should be left to the con?
trol of these matters. We believe tbat
the outrages were exaggerated, and that the
perpetrators could better be reached by au ap?
peal to their nobler impulses. But the major?
ity thought otherwise, and the President, in
executing the Ko-Klux laws, brought about
the slate of affairs whleh we now see in North
Carolina. Now, even popular elections are to
be controlled by Federal officials. The mean?
ing of ail this Is, fellow-cltizeUB, that the elect?
ive franchise has been taken away from the
people and given to the tools of the adminis?
tr?t ion. We ot the North are not as much
affected by this as are you of the South; but
we know that as long as there is a single slave
in the country no ireeman is safe. If the
South ls enslaved we are lu danger, and we
must therefore stand up for each otber.
The speaker then paid his respects to the.
carpet-baggers. How was lt possible that
such abnormal and hideous things should grow
up In a Iree country. Imparttai suffrage waB
a logical result of the war, but the people
who were its beneficiaries were none the more
prepared for the intelligence of their new
rights. It was not Btrange, then, that unscru?
pulous adventurers coming from abroad or
springing up in their midst, and pretending a
great friendship for them, gained their ear
and used them as a compact organization for
tbelr own political ends. The governments of
the South were taken hold of by the most Ig?
norant and depraved men that ever pounced
down upon a devoted people. They were ron
Into extravagances that can hardly be be
lieved. These expenditures seem really ab
THE NORTH CAROLINA STATE DEBT
has been Increased from fliteen to thirty-four
millions, and sixteen millions of railroad
bonds lound their way Into th? capacious
pockets of carpet-baggera without the tax
payers ever hearing from them again. Bad
this state ol' aSalrs was, the Republican party
was responsible for lt, not because Its prlncl
pal chief did it, bot because the carpet-baggers
who committed the rascalities were counte
nauced bv the national authority and were
honored with confidence and patronage,
appeal to any fair-minded Republican to know
If this ls not true ? Is it any wonder, then
that the whites of the South did not spring
Into your arms with alacrity ? They accepted
the results ol the war, but could you expect
them smilingly to approve your efforts lo rob
them and strip them naked ? To such a sys?
tem of outrage ls the administration lending
Who will deny that the infinite Dumber of
deputy marshals now in North Carolina were
appointed to control the pending election, to
tlx upon the necks of these people the yoke of
th0S9 In sympathy with the men throug
whose fingers rau that $16.000,000 ol public
funds. [Applause.] It was In view of such
things that the Liberal Republicans arose in
that great upheaval of the popular conscience
which resulted in the Cinclnoatl Convention
General Schurz then sketched the history ot
that movement from Its dawning in Missouri
in 1870, until the nomination of Greeley
and Brown at Cincinnati and Baltimore.
He maintained that the Cincinnati platform
was the true Bepublican plallorm-that It con
tained all that was best of the principles of the
Republican party, and that the Cincinnati ban
ner was the true Bepublican banner of free
dom and equal rights. Upon that platform
we will stand, and under that banner we will
march, whether we are called Soreheads
Democrats or Rebels. [Applause.]
General Schurz then alluded to Mr. Bout
well's strange words that this ls no time for
"clasping hands across the bloody chasm;
that there must be no reconciliation at this
time. He could not conceive bow lt was pos
sible that any heart oould be so obdurate as
not to rejoice when the band of reconciliation
ls offered by one sincerely desirous of peace
How can a man delight In war when peace la
attainable ? We have all heard of the Puritan
of the old times who delighted in hanging Dis?
senters and burning witches. Thank God, the
spirit of wi ten-burning has left Massachusetts
long ago; but it appears that there are yet
some lo that State who cannot sleep unless
they burn their witch a day. [Applause and
laughter.] There are
MEN WHO LIVE FT INFLAMING ANIMOSITIES
that have divided our people. Woy ls this
done ? For no reason but that the party lead
ere know mat unless the war-cry la kept hp
the Radicals must go to the bottom. As soon
as the North and South are reconciled there ls
no longer need for a war-party, and those w ho
lived and thrived on the wa.-cry must go
under. It is for party ascendancy that a re?
conciliation is to be prevented. To this end
the archives of the dead Confederacy are
bought and the country Is treated io the de
tails of the plans of rebel emissaries for the
burning of Northern cities. It ls like burning
the effigy of Guy Fawkes In England to keep
alive the hatred of Roman Catholics. Fortun?
ately, the enlightened spirit of England has
outgrown that hatred, and ls the public spirit
of the United States behind il ?
What ground have we for distrust? Why
.repel the outstretched hand ? Wby find faun
that they do not embrace those who suck
their substance and have stripped them
naked ? Do you want any other guarantee
ot good taith than their voling for one who
bas been th?j lite-long foeman ol all their old
issues ? It you do, lt shows you are dishonest
In what you demand. You don't value good
government as much as yon value parry
A WORD TO COLORED Ml'N.
General Schurz then made an eloquent ap?
peal to the colored voters, who were largely
represented In the audience, beseeching them,
by right of being one of their earliest friends,
to be careful of their political action. Il their
masters did not love an Abolitionist, they at
least had every right to. He expressed his
astonishment to hear th;-.: they bad valued
liberty so little as to attempt to rid them?
selves of lt by interfering with the exercise of
the right of suffrage. He had heard tbat they
had mobbed men of their own race who were
marching In a Greeley and Brown procession.
It a colored mau could not vole for Greeley
and Brown, or anybody else whom he pre?
ferred, the freedom ol oplnbn which had
been con!erred upon the colored race was
lost, and they made slaves of themselves
again to the opinion of others. They should
set a better example lo the whites. The great?
est crime that they could commltt was io
trample under foot lae great boon of freedom
of opinion. He urged the negroes io culti?
vate friendly relatlonfl with the whites among
whom they lived. It should be neither a
white man's government nor a black man's
government, and they must form Into parlies
according to differences of opinion, and not
according to differences ot color. If they
would do that they would find that both par?
ties would be strenuous In defence of their
rights and anxious to win their suffrages.
KIND WORDS TO CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS.
Ia conclusion, General Schurz addressed the
Confederate soldiers present. He said that be
had been in the army too, and knew that those
who had been in the army had learned some?
thing. Confederate soldiers knew that there
had been a war; that some things had been
decided by that war, and that those declsiona
could not be reversed. He had great confi?
dence in the good sense and abiding patriot?
ism of the Confederate soldiers, and ne begged
to assure them lhat those who had borne arms
on the other side were anxious tor peace, and
were ready to stretch hands across the bloody
chasm, the secretary ol the treasury lo the
contrary notwithstanding. [Applause.] He
urged Southerners to mase themselves
the preservers ol peace within their own
State?, and warned the evil disposed that th?
Liberal Republicans could not make a success?
ful tight If there was any ground for the sto?
ries ot Ku-Kluxlsm In the South. Ia the bands
ot the Southerners was placed the safety of
Bepublican Institutions, and he adjured them
to see to lt that every man was protected In
his life, liberty and rights. He believed fully
that the Confederate soldiers would do lt, and
then thev ot ihe North could stand up as one
man agalrit centralization, and a glorious
victory would be theirs. [Great applause.]
As General Schurz was taking his seat a
gentleman asked him, "How about thal ques?
tion of veracity between yourself ana Mr.
Grant." General Schurz replied that he had
answered that question in letters appearing in
that day's New York papers. He read the
letter from General Pleasantou, In which he
repeated that he was authorized by President
Grunt to pledge Senator Schurz all the patron?
age fae might wish If he would lend his sup?
port to the San Domingo scheme, and he
added: "The question ia now one of veracity
between Presiaent Grant and General Pleas?
General Schurz's speech was all that his
great reputation had led his audience to ex?
pect. He spoke with fluency and eloquence,
and was listened to with rapt attention
throughout. Even the Radicals present were
impressed with bis earnestness and truth. He
spoke as a man whose whole heart was in
what he said, and bis words could not fail to
be impressive. At night he was called upon
by many prominent citizens, and was the re?
cipient of a serenade and other complimentary

Ought dot this to be conclusive evidence
that nothing bas been done contrary to law
and that my office ls above suspicion ? WouU
lt not be supposed that a reasonable pubili
would be satisfied ? Does lt not partake strong
ly ot passion and prejudice, or malicious envy,
and a determination not to be satisfied, when
in the face of these numerous investigations,
nothing has been found wrong ? I leave lt tc
yourselves to J udge.
I am sometimes charged with appropriating
funds of tne State to my own use; in fact, thu
Is the general charge; in whatever lorin lt le
put, It amounts to that In the end.
Now, let us examine into this matter.
LEGAL SAFEGUARDS-RECEIPTING FOR MONEYS.
The State taxes are collected by the various
county treasurers and paid over to the State
treasurer, they receiving three receipts for ul
moneys paid in. Observe, now, how Jealously
and carefully the law guards the .treasury:
one ol the receipts ls aept by the county treas
urer, one ls sent by him to the State auditor,
the other to the comptroller-general. Here,
then, are four parties to the transaction, leav?
ing no room whatever for mistakes, and allow?
ing no opportunity for fraud.
lt me county treasurer should fail to get the
treasurer's receipt for money sent, he would be
a loser aud would prosecute the treasurer,
And here let me say that during the lout
years of my transactions with the county trea?
surers, and despite tbe large amounts ol
money which have been received from tnem,
there bas never, In a Bingle Instance, been the
difference ol' a dollar between ua_
Tben, as a checkagatnat tne treasurer, the
State auditor and comptroller-general bott
are made aware of every dollar that 1B re
celved into the State treasury, so that there IE
no cbance whatever to obtain any money from
that source without accounting for it.
LEGAL SAFEGUARDS-PATING OUT MONEYS.
Now as to payments. Not a dollar can b<
paid out except In pursuance of law, by ai
appropriation; that ls, by direction of th?
General Assembly. And here let me observt
that passing a bill through both Houses
making an appropriation, does not put tht
sum ot money so appropriated into the trea
Bury as many suppose, lt simply defines how
much and lor what purpose it shall bo pale
out, after lt has been collected by tbe count]
treasurers and paid into the treasury. Thai
ls an appropriation.
MANNER OF PAYING APPROPRIATIONS.
1 The manner of paying out appropriations Ii
also carefully guarded by law. Ti.at lor sala
rles is drawn by the officer himself, or only or
. his order; contlugent lunds of the dlfflereoj
departments are drawn on the orders of the
respective heads of departments; the civil
contingent lund ls drawn on warrants of the
comptroller-general and placed exclusively
under his control and at bis disposal; fandi
for the peni ten ti ary are drawn on titer order
of (he superintendent, approved by tbe ' Gov?
ernor: the lunatic asylum fund on the war
raw^C?he comptroller-general,, end ?a on
through in^?UitiBrent appropriations:
FRAUD WOtrr^ jMI DKTK7TXI).
Now, ii any money Is paid ont for any of
these purposes in any other manner than that
prescribed by law, there would be ca proper
voncber In tbe office to show for lt, the loss
would fall upon the office, and then upon me
Individually,and upon my Beetles if I was un- '
able to meet lt. These vouchers and receipts
are my evidence that the money bas been
paid ont as tbe law directs, lt ls, therefore,
the easiest thing In the world to detect fraud
in an office hedged about as mine ls with,
mandatory statutes, and where the disposi?
tion of every^doUar which comes Into my
hands Is an?clpateoTry-the provisions of law.
It is, therefore, - utterly Impossible to. divert
money away from Its proper appropriation,
or to pay out money Illegally, or to take lt for
my own use without instant detecilou. Be>
sioes the vouchers, which the treasurer !. re?
quired by law to keep, and which ?are the
evidence of his faithful discharge of offlolal
I duty, he ls required to make
A MONTHLY REPORT
to the comptroller-general, in writing, of
every transaction in his office. It lathere
taken up and recorded, every receipt of
money, and from whom received; every pay?
ment of money, to whom paid, and on what
account. If my reports are correct, they are
approved by that officer; and,in no instance
have they been disapproved by that officer
during ihe whole official tenn.
[ NO FUNDS UNDER HIS CONTROL.
Ano ti... r evidence that the treasurer cannot
defraud the State without detection ls In the
fact that he cannot use a dollar o? the- State's
money except bis salary and a contingent
fund tor his office of one thousand dollars.
Not a dollar of ail the appropriations faade by
. the L?gislature Is placed at his disposal. Wails
some of ihe State officers have large sums un?
der their control every year, tbe treasurer has
nothing. Tne Governor, for instance, haiat
times as much as twenty-five thousacd.dollars
contingent fund, to say nothing other
moneys, to use.as he piesses, md the State
never asks him "What doest thou with this
trust?" He may use it faanfully or he may
abose lt. He has the po wer to do either. ; Tbe
comptroller-general disburses the civil con?
ti ngent fund. This is the law. The presiding
officers of the two houses of the General As?
sembly have large discretion given them la
the use Of the legislative funds. Bat the
treasurer, standing alone of all the State elli?
ce rs, has not a dollar in tho State tresanry
placed ny law at his disposai. His officiai sig?
nature cannot draw a doJar from the treasu?
ry, except his own salary and contingent fund,
as above stated. No trust of that kind can be
abused by bim, for he has none placed st bia
disposal. ./"< ju-".-7 .
Now, ls lt not plain that tie treasurer can?
not, tn any possible manner, use the fonda of
the treasury for bis own advantage.? It ls
certainly an impossibility. - Whenever there
are no funds in the treasury such reports are
put in circulation, no doubt, frwjuemly. If not
always by those who know.better; and they
are believed by those who have nut had the
means of knowing to the contrary., ,"
.ABOUT RICHES, j !} t&TifiX
Toa have beard it said tt X t the State treas?
urer came to Columbia poor, and had grown
rich while in ' office-Immensely rion, some
say; I nave heard lt es dmated at milli ons.
Two years ago, lt was asserted that I had.
erected a palace, and that my palace was
adorned with' every costly ' and' luxurious
tnlng; that I lived extravagancy ; gave costly
dinners, Ac, &C No doubt all of you present
bave seen either one or both of tn* piala cot?
tages in which I have lived, and know Lae
simple manner of my dally lite.
This palace story ls only one of the false*
hoods, but it ls on a par with ail the ethers
which busy and unfriendly tongues have cir?
culai ed. But, f el'ow-cl ti zens, 1 was not so

plain and unvarnished statement, that, what?
ever my wealth may be-and lt ls far Jess than
many suppose-that lt ?cannot have been
taken by me out of ihe treasury. It could not
have been done without violating the'law;
but the numerous examinations have shown
that there bas been no law violated; or it most
have been achieved by abuse of funds putoed
in my hands; but, as a question or :??c, not a
dollar has Deen placed unser my oo?troL
Wbat powers of legerdemain must that nuit
possess, what master of jugglery must be be,
Who could thus obtain money and hold lt? ..
I have clearly shown that I-have no author?
Ity to draw a single dollar from the treasury
except my salary and contingent fund, andi
have explained the manner of receipting for
and disbursing ihe money of the treasury,
and I make this declaration now, that I have
never bad a dollar of funds belonging to the
State which I have not duly and saualaetorlly
Envious pereros may taunt me with getting

Davis -treen accused ol Crimes of which .they
were entirely innocent. I have lived through
these taunts, and the freedom I enjoy to come
and go in the public streets is a oaily rebuke
io my slanderers.
I frankly admit that I have made, s onie mo?
ney In tour years." I claim that I h?ve as good
a right to make money Ss any other maa ta the
State, but I have made lc in a manner recog
nlzed in commercial circles tobe legitimate.
But I have not embraced every opportunity
within my power to get rich. I nave seen
many ways whereby I could have enriched
myself that I have not taken advantage of. I
have never speculated upon the necessities bf
my friends; 1 never, directly nor indirectly,
used the money of ihe treal-ry to purchase
claims against the State ac a discount: 1 have
many times, however, paid dalma against 'the
State from my own private funds, when there
was no money in the treasury, end walled
until the State was able to retond }C " There
are men.all over tbe State for whom I haye
done these favors, and there .ts due me now
several thousand dollars from such sources
money that I have furnished during tne last
three months on claims without discount.
I have wronged no one In my business
transactions, wnlle I have benefited many. '
Tne charge that I have grown rich ought; not
to weign against me-you ought rather to be
glad cfit-for I have con tri DU ted liberally of
my means to many worthy objects, and some?
times to unwortny objects. 1 can turn to my *
diary and show that 1 nave given away some
thousands ot dollars during the last io ur years.
There IB scarcely a county in the State hut haa
shared, to some extent, In my liberality. I do
not say this bo as tingly; I only refer to lt be?
cause it ls a fact, and because the Bepubiloaa
party have been benefited by. lt. I have felt
lt to be a duty to aid the party In all pana of
the State, and it has certainly been a pleasure
to do so.
There ls another aspect of the oise; yon
ought to be glad that you have men In your
party who nave some means. That party
which ls destitute or means cannot long sur?
vive the attacks or its enemies, i Ic ls like so
army going to war without arms or a com?
