Senator Sprcgur-Anottu r Exposition of
Senator Sprague made a speech at a
Masonic pic-ni a at Sci tua te, R. I., on
the 5th inst. We copy os follows:
We have a country the richness ol
which has never been equaled. It hoe
been given as much to yon as to me; itt
benefits 'are as much yours as they are
mine. But have ita riches been equally
distributed? The idea of the founders
of the republic was that the blessings ol
the Government should bo equally dis?
tributed. Bot I ask any ono of you
however loud his voice or extensive hie
influenco-what power ho has to-day tc
control the acts or will of those you have
elected to lead yon. I am a representa
tive from Rhode Island-a Senutor, ai
you know-to tho Federal Government
of the United States. There is a dis
Unction to be drawn between my obliga
tiona ns an individual and my obligation:
as a member of tho Government. Whei
you send me to represent 200,000 people
in tho Senate, and vote entirely in you:
interest, when tho voto I give concern?
40,000,000 people, am I not asked to d<
more than I ought to do? And when tin
independence and honesty of Rbodi
Island character requires mo to speak nr
best convictions, I um sure you will bi
generous enough to accord that full pri
vilege to me. For Rhode Island mei
nud women have been celebrated fo
their independence and fair denting fron
its settlement to the present, time, and .
hopo that the spirit of independence ha
not departed from me. Rhode Islam
men will see in what I have said an<
done their own characteristics. You ar
hero to celebrate the nation's birth-day
and you have the intelligence to knoi
that unless the Governmout is admiuif
tered upon correct principles, you ar
affected accordingly. If the ad ministril
tion of your Government is not in ac
cordanco with the principles -vhich you
ancestors fought for, the question is
the Government deriving its power froi
the people-if you have the power t
make a change and effect a good admit
ist ration. Your ancestors fought for tb
destruction of that great power whic
forced officers nud taxes upon them nc
of their own choice or imposition. TL
idea, then, which was carried i uto effec
by the ovents which ended in 1783-tin
it was the power of tho people wine
should give direction to the affairs i
their own government-was tho or
which triumphed in the end. I h;n
asked you if in the exercise of tb;
power you have been able to control tl
political events of your own times,
answer that you have not been able
do so; or certainly you would not ba'
controlled them to the evils of tho pu
eight or ten years. The sacrifices of oi
ancestors in Jtbo Revolutionary strugg
hnvo not had their legitimate resh
What is the reason of this? No fr
people, of their own act, would have pr
duced tho disastrous condition which i
suited in the civil war and its bloody t
orifices. There is some power whi
prevoutod you from the enjoyment
that liberty whioh our forefathers thong
they had established for you.
You may look at tho institution
slavery and learn a usefal lesson. Coi
with me to the South and examine,
you will, and see what it was that ga
to that section so great a political pow
and made it dangerous to the peace
tho country, and you will find that it v

It was capital in nogroes which det

You destroyed that power in tho w
But in destroying the negro power j

is crushing overy industrial and ma

The Sonator dofonded himself
length against tho chorgo of having
famed the character of the Rhode Is
soldiery during tho war. Ho cl
with the following allusion to Mr.
Bat I cannot close without poiutin
the recent exhibition, in the t?resenos of !
the whole people, of the Vioe-President of
the United States traveling and speaking
in th? interest of the powers I condemn.
He reminds me of the ass who stole the
habiliments of the king of the forest; for
when he asserts that the country is pros?
perous and contented, he bat Snows the
ears which prove his trae character. He
came among us more especially as the
representative of the mighty West, a
people not yet h ide- bound to the dictates
of the moneyed aristocracy, or to cus?
toms and, institutions founded upon it.
But he joint? counsel and co-operation
with those powers which in themselves
and in their representative capacity are
so in hostility to the independence and
growth of the West. Let him and thoso
who have induced hjm to degrade bis
high office to their level, be prepared to
meet on the floor of the Senate, for the
information of the people from whom he
comes, his true character, aud that of
the alliance he has made.
In California, a miner hnd died in a
mountain digging, and being much re?
spected, his acquaintances resolved to
give a "square fuueral," instead of put?
ting the body iu tho usual way iu any
roughly-made hole, and saying by way
of serviee for tho dead, "Thar goes an?
other bully boy under!" They sought
the service of a miner who bore the
reputation of having, at one time of his
career, been "a powerful preacher in the
States." And then, for Western fashion,
all kuelt around the grave while the ex?
temporized parson delivered a prodi?
giously long prayer. Tho rainers, tired
of this unaccustomed opiate, to while
away the time began fingering the earth,
digger fashion, about tho grave. Grad?
ually looks were exchanged; whispering
increased, until it becume loud enough
to attract tho r.tteution of their parson.
He opened his eyes and started at the
whispering miners. "What is it, boy3?"
Then, his eyes lighting on sparkling
scales of gold, ho shouted, "Gold, by
jingo! and the richest kind o'diggings
the congregation's dismissed!" Instant?
ly every mau bogan to prospect the new
digging, our clerical friend not beirgtbo
least activo ol the number. The body
had to be romoved elsewhere, but the
memory of tho incident yet lives in the
name of the locality, for "Dead Man's
Gulch" became one of the richest locali?
ties in California.
Just as tho journey across our conti?
nent lins been made brief by tho comple?
tion of tho Pacifie Railroad, a new enter?
prise has been uudertnkeu to shorten tho
distance around it. Marshall O. Roberts,
of New York, is at the head of a com?
pany incorporated by tho Vermont Le?
gislature, and holding a grant from the
Mexican Government, for tho building
of a railroad across the Isthmus of Te
huantepec. Tho Atlantic terminus of
the proposed railroad is Minatitlan, a
river town twenty miles from the Gulf
of Mexico, easily accessible to sea-going
steamers at all tide, from which point it
will run duo South to the Pacific, mak?
ing that water at tho port of Ventosa,
one hundred oud sixty-two miles dis?
tant. The construction of the road does
not involve many difficulties, tho ex?
treme elevation being ouly 793 feet, and
ten substantial truss bridges required.
Mr. Roberts has just signed a forfeiture
bond of $100,000 for tho construction ot
a carriage road, and a telegraph line
along the route within eighteen months.
The railroad itself is to be commenced
within two years, and finished within
three years more. The total amount of
capital required for tho undertaking is
The money in tho New York Sub
Treasury has recently been counted by
sixty-six expert accountants. The work
commenced on the 29th ult., and conti?
nued eleven days. After the greenbacks,
to the amount of over $30,000.000, had
been tw.ce counted, and the total bad
been found to tally exactly with the
figures given by Mr. Van Dyck, the bags
of gold and silver were attacked, the
seals broken, tho sewing ripped open,
and the contents poured out on the iron
floor. Iben fifty small streams of tho
metal, "though lost to sight to memory
dear," flsw in every direction from fifty
pairs of bands from ono pile to another
and bael again, as ono set of account?
ants took the other's placo, and the
merry chinking diversified tho orderly
confusion of tho mon's voices. Nearly
$70,000,000 in gold and $500,000 in sil?
ver wer? thus bandied and replaced in
bags, sewed up and sealed. Then $3,
000,000 in shining gold bars were
wuighee, counted and packed away, and
on Saturday morning, the tired nc
countnets stood on their feot, stretched
their backs, rubbed their eyes, folded
their dusters, and like tho Arabs, noise?
lessly stole away. It was found that
