THE CAMPAIGN IN NEW YORK.
SANFORD E. CHURCH,
A Statesmanlike View of the Field.
THE TAX QUESTION STATED.
In tho first place, I say that the peo
ple of this country are taxed to a
greater extent, more oppressively and
"uncciually, than any other people on
the face of the earth ; and if the pe
ple of rsi-, oun try only appreciated
Iheextremt-inequality of this taxation
they would rise up as one man and
hurl the rascals and thieves from pow
er, j Loud and prolonged cheering.
N6v again I say that there is now
drawn from tho people of this country
by way of taxation more than the
whole net productive Industry of the
country. I mean exactly what I say
that . there is more drawn from the
people of this country by way of tax
ation than the whole net productive
iaduatry of tho country. What Is the
net productive industry of a country ?
Of course, people must live. They
must eat, drink .and. wear ; they must
support their children, occupy dwell
ing houses and use a great deal of
property and money lor living and
the education of their families. Alter
you have taken all that out (though
people, of course, may. and often do
pay more than they ought) after you
have deducted all that, the balance is
the iiroductive industry of the coun
try. I do not mean when a man bets
jlOO on a horse race that that amount
is any part of the productive industry
of the country, because that only
changes hands from one to another.
Where a man raises a crop of wheat by
toil, labor aud skill, takes the tall oak
from the mountain top, cuts it down
and works it up into any article of
use, or descends into the bowels of the
earth and takes the minerals there
deposited, or docs any act which adds
to the wealth of the country, that is
productive industry; and I assert
again that the net productive industry
of this country has been for years all
absorbed, and more, too, by the taxa
tion which has been imposed upon
the people. Now, the value of all the
pr. iperty in the United States before
the war was $1,GM,000,000. I see
some gentleman has stated it at
$1,400,000,000, but my recollection, is
that according to tho census reports it
amounted to $1,600,000,000. Property
in the Northern States has increased
in value; ia the Southern States It
has diminished ; but we will take this
valuation for the purpose of determin
ing the productive Industry of the
t-ountry. There are various ways of
asce-taiuing that amount. It is usu
ally estimated that 2 per cent, upon
the whole value of all the property is
the amount of the productlvo indus
try. That is the usual method of esti
mating by those who have studied
and written upon political economy.
That would make $400,000,000 a year
as the productive industry , of the
country, calculating the property at
$l,(;00,00.i00. Now, what amount of
taxes li.n Wen drawn from the peo
ple? Ami here I shall divide, this
amount into parts. First, I shall In
quire what amount has" been drawn
from the people which reached tho
public treasury, as to which we bav
official returns and there can bo no
doubt about it. In 1866 it was $559,
000,000; in 1867 it was $490,000,000;
and Mr. Wells, the special Revenue
Commissioner, has made a statement
in which he says that for the past
year, 1S0S, ending on the 1st July,
there were $460,000,000 of money
drawn from the people by way "of tax
ation which actually went into the
Treasury. We have already an
amount larger than the whole produc
tive industry of tho country. But
there is another point to consider,
namely, how much has been drawn
from the people which has never
reached the public treasury at all.
Let us inquire into tbat.
HOW THI PKOPLX: ARK FOBBED.
Upon this subject I am obliged to
quote from Radical authority, be
cause, if I relied upon my own person
al statement, some of our amiable
Radical friends might say It was a
Copperhead lie. I will cite Mr. Wells,
who is the Radical special Revenue
Commissioner. You may recollect
last fall, just nn tho eve of an election,
Mr.. Wells came out with a statement
in answer to a report which I pre
sented to the Constitutional conven
tion upon the subject of finances, the
amount of taxation, c. He has,
also, come out with a subsequent
statement, for the purpose of helping
our Radical friends out of their dlffi
cultieSi According to every legal rule
the admission of Mr. Wells must be
taken strictly against his client. Note
what he says :
"The Commissioner, lu both his
previous ieports, has given it as his
opinion, and adduced facts in support
of it, that not .over fifty per cent, of
tho amount of tho assessed internal
icvenue taxes has been received into
the National Treasury."
Of course, according to that state
ment, there must have been from
$250,000,000 to $350,000,000 that were
assessed upon the people that nevt r
were received into the National Treas
ury. Now, what has become of it ?
I u regard to that in a minute. I now
quote frxm the authority of Mr. Free
man Clarke, a prominent leader of the
Radicals, residing in the city of Roch
ester, lie has been Comptroller of
Currency, a member of the Constitu
tional convention and Congress and
has given to this subject great atten
tion. I To wrote a letter upon the sub
ject of finance and published it In the
Rochester Democrat six months ago,
where he says :
"It can be clearly demonstrated
that frauds and evasions are practiced
to such an extent that not much more
than half the amount is collected that
should be and would be if the laws
were enforced with administrative
ability and integrity. Tho result is
that the lowest taxpayers are now
paying upon the Lusis of revenue
about $900,000,000 per annum, while
not more than half that sum finds its
way into the Treasury. Statistics of
the manufactures and productions of
the country will prove that if the lax
to which they are subject was fairly
collected and the same rule applied to
customs duties the income of the rev
enue would amount to about the sum
There are some facts within our own
knowledge which bear upon this
-point and go to corroborate Mr. Wells
and Mr. Clarke. The tax upon whis
ky or highwines, as you know, has
beeu $2 a gallon. Now, it is estima
ted there, were 90,000,000 gallons of
whisky made In 1806 or 1867 in the
United States. Of course, the govern
ment ought to have received $180,000,
000, but It never did receive an
amount to exceed $30,000,000 from
that source, leaving a margin of $150,
000,000. We do not realize such large
amounts of money. We have been
talking about hundreds of millions
and we. do not realize it. Your
county is only assessed at $5,000,000,
fo that twenty counties like this have
been swallowed up and appropriated,
not for the government, but for pri
vate purposes have been stolen by
officials and others on one single arti
cle, which the people have paid every
year, and this has been done every
year for the last three years. This,
therefore, goes to corroborate these
gentlemen's statements, that double
the amount of money has been as
sessed and collected from the people
than has ever found its way into the
WILL THE PEOPLE TOLERATE IT?
Do you not realize it now, fellow
citizens, that all your toil, all your la
bor, nil your skill, and the labor,
skill, toil and sweat of the whole
American people of the United States
have been taken and absorbed by this
government ? Is there any other peo
ple on the face of God's earth who
could tolerate this Air a single mo
ment r Will the American people
tolerate it ? Cries of " No, no," and
cheers. Will the' hard' working
man the farmer, the mechanic, the
laborer will any Republican tolerate
it and sustain and approve men who
have fastened these odious measures
upon us and committed these outra
ges upon the people? A voice
"Yes, they will," No, I do not
think they will. (Cheers. " Some of
them may. Men who want office and
politicians may do it, but I tell you
there are hundreds of thousands ot
honest Republicans vho will not.
TAXES HEAVIER THAN NECESSARY.
Now, as to the money which they
have received into tho Treasury, I say
it is a much larger sum than is neces
sary for that purpose. Our fathers es
tablished the government not only for
a free, but for an economical govern
ment. They made it a cheap govern
ment. They intended that the gov
ernment should not rob people of
thwr labor. That was the foundation
stone, and one of the principles they
meant to inaugurate was that the
fruits of labor should be enjoyed by.
those who earned them.
How do the expenses or govern
ment compare now and before the
M ar ? The averago expenses for ten
years before the war from 1851 to
18G1 were $57,000,000. Now, for four
years since the war has been over and
during a time of peace they have been
$460,000,000 eight times as much.
The Republican party has expended
In eight years since they have had
charge of this government more than
the whole of its expenses for eighty
years down to the war. During"Mr.
Polk's administration we had war
with Mexico and we had to transport
armies and munitions of war to that
country. Now, the whole expenses
of the War Department during these
four years were only $90,000,000, while
during the present year and the three
or four years past the expenses of the
War- Department have been about
$120,000,000. So that it costs $30,000,
000 more for these Radical Puritans to
run the Department a single year in
the time of peace than for four years
during a foreign war under a Demo
JIOBB THAN TBK TAXES OF GREAT BRITAIN.
The government of Great Britain,
as you know, Is one-of the first, If not
the foremost government upon the
face of the erth. Its coloniesencircle
the entire globe. ' It is an aristocratic
government, with its titled nobility,
its royal children and innumerable
grandchildren to support and set up,
with excessively high salaries to all
its officers, many retiring with
amonnts larger than the pay of the
President of the United States, and
how does she compare with the ex
penses of tho United States under
Radical rule? Their property is val
ued at double ours, their debt is dou
ble ours, yet how do our expenses
compure with theirs? They expend
for all purposes $289,000,000, including
the interest upon their debt, and we
expend $400,000,000. Our government,
in time of peace, under Radical rulfi
one formed with a view to economy
and cheapness expends about $100,
000,000""more yearly than the expen
sive arfotocrutic government of Great
Britain. Their army of 200,00ft men,
which is four times larger than ours,
costs less money than ours.
And yet you are asked, my fellow
republicans, to go on and support
those men in this extravagance. : You
are asked to approve their conduct
and their measures and to erpetuate
their power. .
WILL A CHANGE BE BENEFICIAL?
You may say and I will consider
the remark with very great respect
"it may be as bad if we change the
government as it Is now. We have
no guaranty there will be any re
form." Now, I think you have a suf
ficient guaranty. In the first place,
you cannot expect the men who have
initiated, organized and fastened
these odious measures upon yon to re
lorm them. They are attached to
them and believe in them. They
think their system of taxation right
WHAT THE DEMOCRATS BELIEVE IN.
Now, we Democrats do not believe
in their system of taxation. We know
they are robbing the masses for the
benefit of the few. We want men
who will apply the pruning knife to
all these corrupt excrescences whinh
exist from the bead to tbe tail of offi
cial action throughout the govern
ment. Besides all these I can give
you another consideration : it is im
possible, if a change be effected to
make matters worse. You have eve
rything to gain and nothing to lose by
a change, and, therefore, I think we
have some reason to hope tbat by a
change of administration we might
get rid ofeometjl these abuses. '
THE TAXES UNEQUAL AND OPPRESSIVE.
Let us inquire a step further In ref
erence to this taxation. Not only do
they raise double the amount that
ever gets into the public treasury not
only do they receive into the public
treasury a much larger amount than
is needed for the expenses of the gov
ernment, but they lay these taxes
most unequally and oppressively.
Let us take this tariff tax, where they
raise $240,000,000 in currency; who
pays it? It operates upon the poor
man.' The poor man, with a family
of six or eight, pays more to the gov
ernment under the tariff tax than the
richest man in the community. Eve
rything you eat, every necessary of
life, every pound of tea you buy costs
you six shillings, that is, the six shil
lings which goes to the government.
Upon every pound of tea and coffee,
upon every necessary of life, from fifty
to one hundred per cent, goes to the
government. The Evening Journal
says poor men never seethe tax-gatherer.
No, they io not-see him. but
oh ! how they feel him ! They feel
him when they Bit around their
hearthstone to take their homely
meal. IS very cup of tea or coffee, eve
ry pound of sugar, every yard of cot
ton cloth, every pin,"every needle, ev
ery mateh, everything they use, eat,
or wear, they pay government an ex
travagant tax upon. This tariff tax,
which has been rolled up for the ben
efit of the New England manufactu
rers until it reaches the enormous sum
of $240,000,000 a year, is paid by the
masses, the poor and the middle class
es'of people throughout the country.
The internal revenue tax operates in
the same way. It Is a tax upon what
we use, buy and wear. These taxes
are put on sometimes two, three and
four times to one article, and upon the
top of that ia theroflt of every person
through whose hands the propeity
has parsed. What do you suppose are
the profits paid to persons through
Whom the property passes that is paid
by way of tariff? What Is the profit
you pay upon tho tax ? It is $25,000,-
000 a year, and the profit you pay
upon the internal revenue tax is
$7,000,000 a year. I say everything
you eat, drink and wear Is taxed
The child, from the time it Is born, is
taxed upon the clothing that is put on
its back, Its playthings, its bauble, its
education, its school books, its busi
ness, trade, or occupation through
life, and the very coffin which takes
it into the ground is taxed over and
over again, and the first thing its rep
resentatives do when they call upon
the Surrogate to administer on its as
sets is to pay government tax. These
are indirect taxes ; but how is it when
you come to direct taxation ? Who
pays those taxes? "The rich man?
No, fellow citizens. ; I . tell you that
the direct taxation in this country Is
the most unequal and oppressive of
any ever Invented in any land in the
world. It falls upon the poorer class.
They pay all direct taxes of any con
TAXING UNITED STATES BONDS FAVORED.
Here are .$2,500,0(0,000 of these
United States bonds that are exempt
from taxation. What did our friends
say at Chicago ? Are they in favor of
taxing them ? They ' say not a word
upon the subject ; on the contrary,
they assert it is repudiation What
does the democratic platform tell you?
It says, in plain, unequivocal. Ian
guage, ;We are in' favor of taxing
United States bonds equally with all
other property." But they say It is
repudiation ; it is an outrage' on the
bondholders. Is it ? Let us see.
Congress has passed a law, it is true.
exempting these bonds from taxation
by State or municipal authority, but
there is no prohibition on the general
government itself to tax them. ' The
United States can tax them ten, twen
ty or thirty per cent. They can tax
them enough to make them equal to
all other proierty, and relieve the
people who do not own bonds from
the oppressive burden of taxation.' "
I say government can do that, and
confessedly there is no repudiation in
It. They admit It. Why does, not
the government do that ? They have
had absolute power: not only to pass
laws, but to do so over tho veto of the
President ; and why do they not re
lieve the people in this respect?- Why
because this radical party, which
started out with the Inscription upon
its banner, "Free soil, freemen and
free speech,"haye become so degraded
as to be now the mere bottle-holders
of the bondholders. That ?s the rea
son they have not iohe It. Thl gov
eruiuent has been i-uled by the bond
holders ever since the radicals have
had power. (Cries of "Titat'a so.that's
so.") Every financial measure has
been passed undor t heir direction.
they rule the government, and if these
men succeed they will continue to do
so, aud if they rule foi four years
longer it will bo too late for you to
relieve yourselves. (Applause.) I go a
step further. :
THE POWER OF A STATE TO TAX BONDS.
I do not believe there is any power
in Congress, or anywhere else, to pre
vent the State authority from taxing
these United States bonds. -(A voice,
"That's the point, stick to that,"
and cheers.) I know the Supreme
Court have decided that the States
have no such right. ' I do not believe
that the decision is correct. They de
cided it upon the idea that if they
gave the States the right to tax they
would have the power to tax so high
as to destroy the value of the bonds.
I deny it. The right to tax on the
part of a State is the power only to
tax these boids equally with all of. r
property. If you discriminate against
them then the action of tho State
would be void ; but 60 long as you
tax this property equally with all
other property there is no power in
the general government or anywhere
elpe to prevent it. I have shown you
that there Is abundant power in the
general government to do this.
REVERSAL OF SUPREME COURT DECISIONS
All parties entertain a high respect
for the Supreme Court and obey its
mandate ; yet 1 tell you the time will
come when this decision will be re
versed- by infusing into that body
something of the popular element
upon this subject. It will be the same
as it was in the matter of the United
States Bank, where the people in their
sovereign majesty, led on by that
glorious old hero, Andrew Jackson,
reversed that decision. (Applause.)
So it was in the Dred Scott case. All
my republican friends claim that the
people reversed that decision that is,
they infused into the Supreme Court
enough of the popular element to im
press it with a different opinion upon
that subject. And so it will be in tbi3
case. See the injustice of it. WThy is
it that the government can take our
money without our consent ? What
is the justification ? Because it protects
our lives and liberties, and therefore
has the right to take our money to
pay taxes for that protection.
HOW IS IT WITH THE BONDS?
How is it with the bonds? When
they come into the hands of the citi
zen of the State arc they not property
protected by the State authorities ?
Are not all the expenses of protection
incurred the same as in regard to any
other description of property? If
they are stolen the citizen can resort
to a court of justice for redress, and
he enjoys the same facilities as others
possess to procure their recovery and
punish the offenders. Why, then,
should not these bondholders, I ask
you, my honest republican friends,
contribute something to pay the ex
penses of that protection as well as
other people who own property ? Do
you want to pay taxes for the men
who liold these bonds ? I have no ill
will to them, but who are they ? They
are not the men who labor for a liv
ing ; they are not' the men who rise
early in the morning and toil till
evening, but they are men riding past
on the golden wheels of luxury, who
live on the labor of others, and why
should they not contribute equally
with you and me? Remember that this
year is the last opportunity you will
ever have of protecting yourselves.
APPEAL TO YOUNG MAN.
Permit mo to appeal to the young
men, for this question is of more vital
importance to them than any one
else. Those of middle age will soon
pass a,way, and the burden of this
government will fall upon the young
men just entering upon the stage of
action. It is you, young men, who
should rise up in this campaign, and
prevent tbe forging of these shackles
which wrll bind you. and your poster
ity forever I View the countries of
the Old World. Look at England,
probably the first country in Europe
to-day, and what do you perceive !
Do you not know that this infernal
system of taxation has ground down
the masses until they and their fami
lies have become poorer and poorer,
to such an extent, that it is Baid that
one ont of every eight of tho people
of that land go to the almshouse or
some public poorhouso during their
lives ? Why is this ? Because the
moneyed powers have the control of
all European governments. They
have tho control of the military pow
er also, and they keep . the people
down by force.
THE PRIVILEGED CLASSES IN EUROPE.
It is because these privileged classes
these moneyed interests, these money
ed aristocracies, most dangerous in
any free government, possess the con
trol of the government and keep the
people under that the great masses of
them are so poor. Ask any man who
came from Ireland why he left his
home that green' Isle that might be
made to flow with milk and honey
and come to a foreign land among
strangers to seek his livelihood. Be
cause the government taxed him to
that extent that he was unable to sup
port his family and himself. That is
the reason why he left. The reason
that hundreds of thousands from Ire
land and . other European countries
como to this country year after year
is because the masses of the people
are taxed to death.
FINANCIAL QUESTION THE VITAL QUESTION.
I tell you that the contest to be de
cided in the fall is ,more important
for the liberties of the country, on
account of these financial questions,
than any others,, important as they
jnay be. No people ean be free who
are unjustly taxed to this extent.
Why, take a poor man. who works
hard for a living, and the government
takes half what he earns, what will
be the effect upon him ? It destroys
manhood, his vitality and independ
ence. . It destroys those elements
which make him a free, an independ
ent and a happy man. I never was
in favor of Blavery tn my Ife Amer
ican slavery per se. I only agreed to
continue it because it was part of tho
original compact. I would to God
that the shackles were stricken from
tbe Limbs of every human being on
the earth, (Enthusiastic applause.)
But there is no slayery so biting, so
ruinous, so withering to men as this
accursed system of taxation. (Ap
plause.) There ia still another financial
principle to which I will briefly
ONE CURRENCY FOR ALL.
We have inscribed upon our ban
ners, "One currency for the bondhol-
ltQ O rl XfSA TtilAFtl A a a-tenA assn asms, Aero rVia
the farmer, the mechanic. the pension-1
er tuiu ins oouunoiaers." uur repuD
lican friends say this is repudia
tion. We say that the government
bond which does not declare on its
face, or in the law under which it is
issued, that it was payable in coin,
may be paid in the currency of the
country in the same currency that
you were obliged to take for every
debt owing to you, for every article of
property which you sold,, for every
hour of labor which you performed.
The same currency you were obliged
to take the bondholder must take,
unless the law which it was issued
specified to the contrary.
WHAT IS THE CONTRACT?
But the radicals say, "This is repu
diation, this' is bad faith, this is an
act of fraud." Is that so? I tell you
that is the plea of usurers and extor
tioners. Let us see if it be bad faith.
If you have a greenback in the mor
ning (and I hope you have plenty),
and you turn it upon its back you will
find that this note is receivable for all
public and private dues, except duties
upon imports and interest upon the
national debt. That is the law, that
they are receivable for all public and
private'debts, and for everything ex
cept,interest on the public debt and
duties upon customs, leaving, there
fore, the principal of the public debt
to be paid by these greenbacks. That
is the contract. We do not desire to
violate the contract. Our radical
friends como here with poor grace.
How was it in the Legislature of this
State ? This State gave bonds, issued
when gold was the only legal tender
and the interest payable in gold. The
republican Legislature, against the
earnest wish of Governor Seymour
(loud cheers! passed an act to pay
that interest in greenbacks, when it
was payable in gold, thereby repudia
ting the contract of the State of New
York. That was all right on their
part, but when we come to these rich
bondholders, who have no contract
for payment In gold, they raise up
their hands In holy horror and cry
out repudiation and fntud.
JUSTICE OF THE CASE STATED.
I have attempted to show you what
the law is ; now, what is the justice of
the case? Here is a man who five
years ago had $40 in gold. He lent it
to the government and got a hundred
dollar bond. He has received since
that time $6 a year in gold for inter
est. He has been exempted from
taxation, which would bo equal to $3
in gold. Added together, that makes
$45 already received in gold for the
forty dollars originally lent the gov
ernment, and now he comes and de
mands $100 in gold more. We pro
pose to pay him $70, what they are
now worth in gold, and yet our radi
cal friends, who seem to be the organs
of these bondholders, say we are do
ing injustice to tho poor, wretched
bondholders in not giving them $30
in addition to the $70 we propose to
pay, although they have received $5
more than they originally loaned to
the government. They passed a fun
ding bill, which is to cure all these
difficulties, just before Congress ad
journed, but the President did not
sign it. thank the lord ! (Loud ap
plause and laughter.) They threaten
ed to pass it oyer the President's veto,
It Is a measure instigated by bond
holders for their benefit, for the pur
pose of choking you off, my republb
can mentis, (cneers.j They propose
to issue new bonds, running thirty or
forty years, and after they have run
thirty to pay four and a half per cent,
principal and interest in gold, and if
they run forty years, four per cent,
and make them forever exempt from
taxation. Now, let us cipher. Let
us see what tho difference would be.
You take $1, which is equal, I believe,
as gold now is, to about sixty-eight
cents. That is tho present value, as
we say, of $1 of these bonds, sixty
eight cents in gold. Now, cast the
interest for thirty year3 at six per
cent, tho present rate, and then take
one, as they propose to give, of theH
new bonds payable in gold, aud cast
the interest at thirty years at four and
a half per cent, and you get forty-five
cents more than the bond is worth at
the present value in greenbacks. That
would make upon the whole $2,000,
000,000 the nice little sum of $000,000,
000 difference, which these gentlemen
propose to make a donation to tbe
bondholders and have you toil and
pay it. Aro you willing to do it?
(Shouts of "No, no.") If you are, vote
the radical ticket, and may God have
mercy upon your soul !
THE FREEDMEN'S BUREAU OVERHAULED.
xmow, ienow citizer , the mo?t ex
pensive article that has ever been in
troduced is this thing called a "Freed-
Ulen's Bureau." It is an article de
signed to feed, clothe, doctor and
transport the lazy and idle negroes ef
the South, so that they will vote away
your rights and privileges, That is
the object of it. What did your abo
litlon friends preach year after year,
They said, "if you will only free this
unfortanate race, only break - the
shackles which bind their limbs, give
them an opportunity to go out into
the world as white men, they will
support themselves and their families
and willing to do it ; all we ask is that
this accursed system of slavery shall
be abolished." Well.it was abolished.
And yet the support of these negroes
has been most extravagant and ex
pensive, which has all been heaped on
the people of tho North. Let me
read to you an estimate for one sin
gle year of the Superintendent of the
Freedmen's Bureau ; commissary
stores, $47,500 ; salaries of clerks, $12,
000; stationery and printing, $G3,000 ;
quarters and fuel, $15,000; clothing for
distribution, $1,050,000. Only think
of that! One-third of the whole as
sessed valuo of your country to bo
distributed to these lazy, idle negroes
for clothing in one single year 1
Where did this Congress get the pow
er to do this ? A few years ago our
friends in Ireland were starving, and
they wanted assistance. Private and
public charities were appealed to. The
government desired to help thom.but
it was determined that they had no
power, under the constitution, to do
nate money for that yurpose.however
much- they desired to do it and how
ever much it wits needed. But here,
In a single your, without any author
ity, they distribute nearly $2,000,000
of clothing to these negroes, who are
as able to work as you or I am. Let
us see tho next item. "Commissary
stores, $4,106,000." What is that for?
It is for food to eat, Did this Con
gress ever think of feeding the poor
people of tho North ? We have poor,
sick and disabled people here, who
have returned from the war, some
times without limbs, and unable,
though willing, to work, yet we nev
er find this Congress making any ap
propriation to buy food for them.
But $400,000,000 in one year is wanted
by this superintendent of the negro
bureau to feed negroes at the South,
and you labor and toil to pay it.
"Medical bureau. $500,000," for a set
of negroes as well clothed and fed as
they are. Clothing at $2,(100,000 and
feeding at $4,000 j000. Why it is the
sickliest set of negroes I ever heard
ol in my life. (Laughter and cheers.)
Transporting, $1,680,000 almost $2,
000,000. What is this for Transpor
ting these negroes, round from poll to
poll to vote? And so they goon
until they make the items amount to
$11,514,000 that they ask for one sin
gle year In support of this Freedmen's
Bureau. But this is not all ; not only
do you have to work and pay this tax,
but millions more to keep up the ar
my to support and protect the Freed
men's bureau and the negroes at the
EFFECTS ON THE SOUTH.
While you are paying these expen
ses the Southern States are so impov
erished that they are unable to con
tribute in any great degree towards
paying the taxes of the government.
Why the State of New York for the
last year has paid double the amount
of internal revenue that tho whole
ten Southern States have paid, and
yet they contain a population three
times greater than New York. But
for this infernal system of military
despotism and Freedmen's Bureau;
which prevents that . country from
developing itself and becoming pros
perous, it would contribute to the
support of the government three
times as much as the State of New
York. Instead of the whole ten States
paying $30,000,000 they should pay
$150,000,000, according to the amount
of tax-ttion as they would if they
were as flourishing and prosperous as
they would be but for the blighting
influence of this radical rule which is
upon them. (Cheers.) So you are not
only obliged to contributo by direct
taxation this $11,000,000 a year for the
Freedmens bureau and $10,000,000 or
$20,000,000 for the army to back them
up, but you are deprived of $150,000,-
000 a year which ought to go into the
Treasury of the general government,
in consequence of keeping that coun
try as it now is. How long will you
continue this thing? It is for you to
decide without passion or prejudice.
Are you in favor of sustaining these
men V If you vote the radical ticket
and it is elected they will claim, and
have the right to claim, that their
acts have been sustained and ratified
by the people. The question is wheth
er you. will do it or not? ("Never,
THE CANDIDATES COMPARED.
I have spoken to you thus far . of
general principles deeply vital to free
government and to the freedom of the
people of tho country. I have en
deavored to bring these subjects to
your attention so that you will exam
ine them, and i beg you, as you value
your own interests and the wellaro of
tho country, to do so fairly, candidly
and impartially. 'Now I desire to say
one word in relation to the candi
dates who are before the people. I do
not believe, myself, in, abusing men
who are placed in nomination by po
litical parties for office, especially for
the office of President. I do not think
it is any credit to tho American peo
ple in the eyes of the civilized world
to endeavor to produce an impression
that either of the candidates in nomi
nation is the meanest man in the
world. It is not to our own credit to
make other people believe that, and
it is not true. No man could be nom
inated for President of the United
States who has not some qualification
which entitles him to confidence and
GEN. GRANT AND HIS NO POLICY DOCTRINE.
. So far as Gen. Grant Is concerned, I
have not one word to say in relation
to his military qualities. Upon that
subject there is great diversity of
opinion among military men. I have
no competency to speak upon that
subject, nor disposition. I am per
fectly willing that he should wear ev
ery star that adorns his uniform in
peace and without objection. But
there is a lamentable thing in relation
to Gen. Grant, which 1 regret on his
account, namely, tho letter he has
written accepting the nomination. I
regret it because in that communica
tion he informs us that he has " no
policy" for the administration of the
government. "No policy" for the
administration of the government in
a critical period like this, when one-
third of tho Union is under military
despotism, when it" requires more
skill and statesmanship to bring back
and retore this country to its former
prosperous condition than at nny oth
er period during its history ! Gene
ral Grant, who asks people to vote for
him, tells them that he has no policy
for the administration of the govern

believe that is the general understand
ing) that he will be nnder the control

commenced official life with him ir,
the year 1S42, in the Assembly of this
State. I ran with him twice upon the
same ticket since that time and we
were both, at one of those eler tious,
chosen. I have been associated with
him in the administration of tne Stale
government and I have knevn him
well In every position he has occupied
since that time. And now, while it
is true that Governor Seymour has
biv-n a candidate for office at times of
great political excitement, when tho
passions of men were greatly aroused .
and unkind things were said of him,
yet I venture to say, with as much
personal knowledge as any one, I
think, in the State, that no act of his
life-can be pointed but that is incon
sistent with the character of a states
man, a patriot and a christian gentle
man. He has matje the science of
government his study throughout his
life. Nobody disputes that his pri
vate life is entirely pure and spotless.
Nobody disputes that he has disr
charged laithfully and honestly every
public trust. Who, then, is there
more competent in this broad land to
bring us back to the government of
our fathers and to a condition of pros--perity
than Horatio Seymour? That
is my opinion, and I entertain it hon-.
estly. I entertain it without the
slightest feeling of 111 will to General
Grant. On the contrary, I will take
every occasion to do the fullest justice
to him for all his services to the coun
try. But it is generally believed that
he ought to be satisfied with his pres
ent position. He holds his place for

say witli General Grant, " let us have
peace." We never can hnvo peace so
long as this Radical party i.s in pow

govern not by law ; they govern by

that rule and never can be. Now, let

General Grant is a good soldier ( r a
poor one. This is not the question
the people desire to have answered
just now. The popular query is,
"what is his policy? what course
will he pursue if elected?" To this
query the General gives the eir.phntic
reply, in his letter of acceptance, ' I
will have rio policy of my own'
