j Gentlkmkx : We have received yom
Communication ot the 21st instant, witli th.
enclosed copy of ecrjain resolutions am
the ceftiticite or G-orjte T. M -teairp, Sec
retary. that they were -adopted by a meet
ingiif fteel izen-ol Columbus on- Tuesdu
evening, O -.t. 20th. 1868."
i UA meeting of tlie citizens of Columbus '
imports a meeting of all her citizen-; or, a
least, one to which all her citizens were in
vited. But no sucli meeting was held oi
r,Ue 20th lust, nor has any such meeting o
a political character been held iu this citi
lor many years.
: The meeting of the 20h Inst, was a strict
ly party meeting of individuals ot the R
publican party, a,iid held at a liepubiica
club ro -m.- To call it a meeting ot -'rh
ci iz ns ot CuluuibuV is a very unwar:
ranted assumption, to use no stronger tern '.
Why was H thus designated ? Was it to
give a , semblance ot contirmition to the
exaggerated and false accounts that have
appeared In Radical papers respecting the
li-turbances at ihe late election? Wasl
to convey the idea abroad that these dis
urbane.es were of so serious a character
that the whole body of the citizens of Co
iiimbus, without respect to party, lelt call
ed upou to assemble and condemu ihem,
and take lueasnres to preveiit their repeti
tion? We would be very reluct iui, gen
leimn, to attribute to you motives so un-
vortliy; but, iu view ol the fact that th s
orresp nidi uce will no doubt, be published
ve cannot permit so uniounded ail as.surap
tion to pa-s without .notice. .
; That there were some aflrays Ii a few o
tlie wards at the late election is. undoubted
Iv true, and it is much to be renretied.-r
V'h were i lie angres-wrs, it is not fo
- on or us to do. lde. Tnat ts a que.-tion lot
the 'courts, and to theui We are perfeeth
willing to leave it being fully coutiJen
that trom a lair judicial investigation the
DiinocSitie pariy will suffer no detiiment.
But th -sb affray , incidental to all election!
(nex ited times, have been Btudiously ex
aggerated for party purposes, and individ
aals and whole clisses ot our citizun vil
hrtel in your leading newspaper, as if its
O ,j ot was to prove that Columbus is a
mob city, and under io legal restraint
wuatever. We tell you plainly, gentle
men, that this exaggeration and abuse is
not the best way to preserve the peace and
secure quiet elections. The public mind Is
sufficiently excited,-without intensity ing
the excitement by false accusations, in
flammatory appeals, and by forcing men to
the polls, who, being disqualified, have
never heretolore offered to vote, and who.
tl left to themselves, would not now offer
n so. Id saying this, we mean to cast
imputations upoi you personally, but
merely io can your attention to mailt s
hose tendency is detrimental to the pres
ervation of the peace, and to express our
Deuei tnat you have far more power tnan
e nave, to secure the object; we al
desire a - fair - and , - ouiet --election.
Whatever inlluence we can exert, will be
xerted to attain that object, and we e.outl-
lently hope that von. taking a caudid, un-
im passioned and practical view of the mat
ter, will work for t..e same purim.se.
We will now pmcee I to answer your spe
in- pronnsition:-' 1
First. You ask ns to airee with you in
declaration that: '-It. is the rightol every
uerson beltemna hitmen a voter, to present
hisclaim to the iudg.-s, and to have it de
cided by them, without thrvat-'. ni destati. n
or i inrv." This uresenus a nnrelv legal
quest on, and we aro r.ot aware that a dec
laration ol our opinion noon it would add
any foroe to the law or be attended with
any practical effect. Die most ol us are
not 1 iwyersand c-:iscqu inly, not per-
oiis io sviioiu ine people are accustoiueu
t look I ir legal advie. But il our opin-
on is ol anv value, it si ems Io ns thatyour
proposniou is uicwhat too nrouil.lt muKes
the right- ot person tn .leinaml a di cisio- '
by the judge, wholly depeni upon IU"
owu bel:ef in his right to vote. If this b-
so, disqualified persons, wh can work
themselves up into such a belief, may oc
cupy the time of the Judges, to the delay o .
legal voters, and perhaps to their exciu .
lon, for want of time, before tin ,
closing of the r.-)l:s. in which, to cas "
their votes. Suppose, for instance
thatj confesfed minors, manifest ne
groes an I women should app ar and clam
such a right, would you ha e tlie n ccipt j
legal votes stopped lor the j i.igcs to ueciu.
upon e-icli individual claim nl tins son
upon the claim oi - i v.'ry person r Ann
vet a minor who had laithiully served his
eountrv in the war, inigl.t, perhaps, be-
li.-ve that h"-was thereby entitled to vote.;
And as to negroes, it U perhaps true tha;
nine out of ieii of the negro meu in t'u
State believe they have tl.e rignt to vote.
whether they have a drop ot white blood
in their veins or not. They have beei
taught that the riitht is conferred
upon or secured to them hy the. D-e!ara
tion of Independence, the 11th nmenilin n
of the Constitution, and the Civl Right:
mil. And judges ot eieeinn. nave oeei
found to permit hundreds of such persons
o v..te, who were manitest negroes, upot
ome one or all of these grounds. And as
n the women, we know that iu some p irt
if the United States not a few of them an-
inally present themselves at the election'
"nd claim the right to vote, Hrmly believ
"g that thev possess it under a law hihei
than the Coustitulion.
The true proposition would seem to b :
I'hat every person entitled to vale has a righ'
n presi M h s eluim to the . udyes and hate it
ti clited by them.
No on.- hot a qnaltlied person h-is a righ' '
o vote, and it would seem to follow thai
no other person has a riyht to take up tin
imeol the judges and delay legal voters,
y 'offering to vote. Your proposi
ion impliedly . admits that, a dis
lualdied person " who knows himsel
0 be disquaiili-d has no suel
ight, and, as belorc said, you make tli
Ight to depend wholly upjn the belief o
c.ie iiidividual. This is a Ionization for i
1 gal right that we have never, in our ob
ervati m, met with belore; ami iltheugh it
s doubtless true that in all cases of such b
ief. and where the vote is offered in goo.
ii;li, and time peruiiis. it would be beitet
i the Judges to decide upon the claim
.et we can not say as matter ol strict law
hat the disqualified individual has an b
.olut.e right to demand such a decislo. .
liut while such is our opinion, do not im
lerstand us as asserting fiat It Is either
awlul or proper lor such an Individual to
e miltreHted while peaceably condu. -tint.
.imseJL M e countenance no breach ot tie
.eace hv any p -rsou or per-ons whomso
ver. Wnile every . peaceable assemblag.
I the people, and especially an assemblag.
it Ilia p ills, has the right ti pro'ect itse.
liainst unlawtul disturb tucej It i
ssential , to the purity and quiet o
lections, that this right should be law
ill v. and; not. nn.awlully exercised.
We will -conclude our observations on
this point by remarking that we are tu t
ware that at the late election any h.gi l
voter was deprived ot his right to vor .
the complaints of violence relate chi fly.
t not altogether, to the E ghth and Ninth
vards. and yet in the toruier the Kepunll
Jins cast 20, and in the latter 18 votes mora
ban they did in : 1S67. This lact ot itseii
would seem to demonstrate that every on.
I' that party who was entitled to vote, ex
ercised that privilege. Secondly, As to your
uropnsition about the Judges of Election,
ve admit its t-Jirm ss, and when the Con
titutiuu shall bit revised we hope it will
ontaiti provisions for the choice ot Judges
it Election in such manner as to secure to
ach of the two great parties at least one
fudge in each election pre.'inut. But wi
nive no authority to make the agrceiuci
you propose. To the electors in each war
clonus the" right to choose ;he thirJ judg
an 1 it is not prohable that they would b
inrtuenccd by any ..arrangement that coin
.mttees might make. By the elector
'.Iwrefore.-your proposition must be con
sidered and dicided upon. Thudly. As i
-Hall, tigers and Tallying comuiittecs. Tin
.Democrats in each ward appoiut their own
hallengcrs and ci tiluiiitces. . We have
milling to do with either, and there seems
o be no necessity to make arrangements
viMi respect to them. There is no reason
Co suppose that either challengers or coni
nitteem u will he intertered with in the
disclnrg ot their duties. But il you think
an arra..geiu. nt important, wereter you to
..he respective Ward Clubs. .
These are our views upon-the proposi
tions you have submitted, and we hive
only to repeat that whatt v-r influence we
possess will be exerted to secure a
lair and peaceal la election. The Dem
ocratic party has as much interest
-is the 11- publican party in the pres
ervation ol the peace, the purity ol
elections, and Ihe weliare and fame of the
city, and will be ! und in the future as it
nas been in ihe pat, obedient tn the Consti
tution ai.d the laws', and we see no reason
u airprehend the lea.-t difliculty at the ap
nroaching fleet ion, unless a persistent effirt
he made to forcu into the ballot box the
votes of men whom the people of Ohio,
only last year, by a majority of 50,000. r -'used
t- entrust with the franchise. That
U; h men have hceu permitted to vote else
where iu viol ition ot the ( institution, and
that this Congressional District was carried
tor the Republican candidate at the late
election by su.-h illejal votes is the firm
belief of the Democratic party, and under
such circumstances you cannot think it
strange that an attempt to casta large nntn
b sr ot such illegal votes in this city should
create excitement and indignation. We
will do what we can to ailay excitement
ud secure a peaceable, election. You can

Reply of the Democratic County
Executive Committee to the Republican
We give la another- column the corre
spondence between the'1 Republican and
Detnocrktic Executive Cmimittees In re
ation to the preservation of peace and the
uriry of the ballot-box on Election days.
It will be seen that the Democratic Com
mittee occupy the vantage ground. They
ocll the Republican Committee, and
through that Committee the Republicans
f this city, that they can preserve quiet
on the day of election by keeping the
Negroes away from the polls, and they call
upon them to do so.
"Thank God we havbe a Candidate

As Gov. Seymour concluded his briel

Speech of Governor Seymour.
Fellow Citizens :-Tiie fir-it words ut
tered by the Kepublican Convention, in
their resolutions congratulating the coun
try upon the success sot tin ir schetr.e of re
construction the la?t ' words uttered bv
their speakers and their pressps declare
that reconstruction is a fail nr.; that the
South is still in a condition of rebellion
that it3 soci tl disorders demand the pres
ence of great artnie, and that the first
duty ot C ingress when it meets, will he
tn turn reconstructed Georgia out ol the
Union. vppiaiKP J
At the outset of tiiM can vaj th ' R pu'i
lieau party asxed to be continued In pow
er, upon the ground that it hid governed
the country lor the past tour years visel
and well, and thus deuia .ded a popuUr ap
proval ol their poli-.y.
After a full dis- u-sion of three months
touching the wWdnm and the integrity
the policy of the Gov.-rnoieut with regard
to r. con-truction and lioanees. it. is f.uid
t lat order has not been rest" red at the
Soutl1; that the burden of debt have not
been lightened, and that thotvilsol onprei
sive taxation IihVi: nut been lilted oil Ir.
the a Mr and industry ol the country
t ley should have been.
Driven from thvir first ground, and
feeling that- the people ol this country
were unwilling to approve their acts, they
now try to hold power hy making the
people beli-ve, not th if. they have done
well, but that tne Dunocriti.: party would
do worse it they shoui I succeed at this
time. To prov this they aver that the
success of the Democratic ticket will in
volve the country again in civil war th-y
feel that nothing s"iort of civil war would
be worse. Cheers. They have declared that
the Democratic nominees are n ady to over
turn th. ir legislation by lorce. To mike
thecharge more dram it c. I am to b! sent
to my final account hv the han.!s of tin
political supporters, and General Ul.iir then
is to trample beneath hi let-t the recon
struction laws as ruthlessly- as G oiernl
Meade stamps them out by his military
orders, with the concurrence of t ie. sa.ne
Republican party. If I am to g to my
last account, I trust I sK-.ll be judged by
kinder and more charitable tribunal than
my Kepublican friends have proved to be.
If the Democratic ticket is elected, and
Gen. lilair should reach the President!
chair, how would the ease Rtirid ? He
would be enntronted by a lidpublicau
Senate, by a House of Representatives lu
ot Generals, by. the army of the UiiC-'d
States, Hanked by the Loyal leagues and
by the Grand Armies ol the U (iubl: un
der the command nt tiu-ir ovn candidate
for the Piesi lency, whom they declare
be the First Captain of the age. And yet
we are gravely told that, stan 'ing nlonc.
shackled byCongressionarrcsiraiiits, lieeuo
crush out all this power, and plunge the
country into civil war ! . .
If this be true then General Blair is either
the ino.-t vigorous man that has lived iu the
history of the world or Republican Sena
tors, members of Congress and command
ers of armies are the most imbecile meu
whoever, disgraced public positions.
Now. i admit there Is a feir in the minds
of tl.e Republican leaders, but His not this
absurd fear.. It is the dread that the public
mind, having . been turned to its fiuaii-ial
and political policy, is reaching conclus
ion? that will sweep them from political
power. Therefore they se.-!k" to change the
issues; therefore they have changed their
front in this contest.
. We are admonished it is a darigerong
thing to change front on the eve of battle..
I propose.ln the course of the canvass.on
occasions like this, to discuss the policy and
conduct of the men in power. To night
must confine myself to a lew points; else
where I shall speak of other wrongs and
errors. When this war ended, nearly tour
years ago, it lelt the Southern Scutes disor
gairzd and impoverished. The duty
restoring peace and prosperity to thatsec
tion and putting ir, into a condition wtu-re
it could add to the National prosperity and
aid to bear its burdens, tell upon the Re
Tne difficulties of the task were increas
ed by the fact that its population was made
up ot two distinct races, one of which had
been held in slavery, aid was now sudden
ly called on, untuton d as they w re, to act
a new part iu our social and political svs
tem. . 1 do uot wish to u nderrate the d lli
culties with which they had to contend,
but the magnitude of the two difficulties
demand, d they should enter upon the task
In a wise and thnuglittul way. Arm.es
alone can not bring back adti sense of the
va'ue of order to a community. They can
only restrain violence. The healing meas
ures of the statesman must make the laws.
The two great objects to b ; kept in view
were to give all classes that prosperity
which tends to make man desire peace,
which gives them hopes, and secures the
good order of society, Desp .irever makes
disorder. ' Another great object an 1 end
was to lilt up the Alrican, as tar and
fast as could be wisely done. Humanity
dictated this; the interests of the white
population of the Sjuth demanded it.
the two races were to live upon the same
soil, their common interests called for har
mony of purpose a id ot feelings. Under
this state of facts, wise men would seek
the ail of the most int-lltgeiit and influ
ential men of that section of the couutrv,
taking care to guard against any influ
ences springing trom their prejudices.
flave these obvious truths been regarded
by the men iu powei? Has not reconstruc
tion failed because they disregarded them?
The first i-tep toward restoring order and
producing; iiaraiony between the races
was in all ways to minister to the prosperi
ty of that section which prosperity would
be shared alike by the white man and the
negro. The industry of the South should
be made prol. table. Unless the employer
made a profit on IiiS cotton he could not pay
the laborer. Failing to do this, disaster
brought not only poverty, but confusion
Truest atesmanshin would have stretched
out a helping hand; but wtiat was the first
act oi tne men in power?. It was to lit a
monstrous export tax ot six ce its on a
pound upon the cotton raised by the labor
ot the negro upon the plantation .of the
Willi--, struggling with the evils ot poverty,
with the ililUculties of their new. pait ions
and relationships.. The lirst iecble vftjrts
of their people to eain the in an- of liveli-
nooii were blasted by an un wise.seHtsli and
vindictive act. I sav unwise, becau-e it
h is had much to do with the fa.lur- of the
U publicans to restore order at the S tilth.
1 he negro, ixisnerated bv the failure of
his ruin, d eniiloyer,beeamu hostile to him;
the employer.losing the lit' Ie credit that he
ha I before in the N r:h. r-ii'iwed his
ellorts under still grea-er .lifliciilties than,
belore. I say it was a selhsh act. because It
was done in the interest of. the-Extern
manufacturer, already wealthy lrom the
Irints ot the wer.
Protected bv thocnormons tariff, this tax
of six cents a pound upon all cutton ex
ported, was in ply imposrd so that he
might buy it for a price six cents l ss than
ir. was woith iu the markets "I the world.
I say It was a vindictive act, for il jou will
read the d. bates in Congress wh m this tax
was levied, to cover the selfish interests
that pro.upted it, you will find lint it was
urged upon members irmi the v. .stern
S ares who vote I agii.:St the interests ol
tMeir constituents, noon the ground that it
ivas t bo iiupised upon the South as a
nciiaitv. and thus we li ml the Dlav.K and
Lhe white mm ths Smth. werrf alike
S '.Hoped ot the in irket value of t'l irntaple
pro luet, u d t .-.ircu.n seances ot such great
d Hi 'iiltv that th' v were hindered and not
he'ped "on the roa I to prosperity by men
in p-wer. Vpplaus..
I iniirht no on and uow how. in' addi-
ti in to this wrong, thev wire trampled
upon by military d.-spotini; how they were
placed . under the iiiirestraliie.d power m
vagrant men. who gained wealth and oltl
ci d positions by ininisicring to the pa-sion
-t the public and Keeping alive disorder.
These men, who now, in the Senate ol the
United S'ates. without, constituents, vote
down tlie Senators of New York. Pennsyl
vania Ohio, Illinois and Indiana, gsineu
their power over the Sjuih and over u
b 'Cause th'iy ministered to p:issioii in the
North and stirnd up disorder iu tlie sou tn.
No 'fair-minded, though'lul Kepublican
will calmly sit down and look over this ac
tion, and uot feel that the policy of his
pa ty has been unwise and nuruul.
Duraigthe nrorew of the war another
mtional difficulty grew up, which excited
alarm in the min is of tho iihtful men. It
was found, as onr debt rolled up its great,
volume, that tho .Government bonds A-ere
taken In tin; Northern Atla-itio St.ite, and
our UMton was thus dissolve! into deb'or
or creditor States. This is a perilous r-l i-
tionship. ' It could not well be avoided,
but the evil might have been mitigated ii
there h td been a wise and economical Ad
minis' rat'on, wh'ch shoul I have k ptdow.i
tne volume ol in n.b e loess.
B it the men in power saw lit to do an
other thing. They drove out of existence
h.-avv taxation, the currency of all Stat
hanks. . They then grasped the exelus.lv
power of issuing pp-r money; they gav
to the holders of G ivernmeut bonds ti. ,
privilege of Issuing bank hills u ider wli
is; known as a na ioual banking syste.ii
This .was a privilege of enormous vaiun.
will not stop now to di-cuss the wisdom
that system. As Governor of this-State
vetoed a l iw authorizing our Dauks to o
ganir y upd-r that system, beeaus.- 1 saw :i
fa bick as 1SG3 that it impcril. 'l the futu
uarinoov ot our Union. The p lint I
whi .h I wish toe ill your att-ntio i i tl.
ii iwise and uiij ist in inner in which th
it at privilege wasdi-sfributed. VViseni
would look to see h iw.it could be given on
so as to mini t.-r m the neneril prospent
ot our cunty. out, regardless ot all this,
gre.it monopoly was given to the first com
r-. They were mainly from the i 1 I an
rl -h States, which had b'n enabled to tak
up the G iveriiment b inds.
Thu ", not ot.ly our debt, but our curren
cv, was seetionaliz -d. While- the State o
Massachusetts, w:'h ahour 1.101) 000 mhiM)
it ints, has about $57.01)0 (KK) of this cur
reney, the S ate- of Illinois, with ah u
twb-e thar populition, ha-, less .than $10.

is good for Massa-ih users, why U it not a
good thing out Wet. Uueers-
Uutthe injustice of this distrinntion was
the least ot the evils which grew out ol
this luck of foresignt and statesmanship.
Ic is no answer to say In jusilicatiou ot
t.iiis inequality that lb Wess bad as uoof
chance to get this privilege fir-t as th
o'her States. It was not matter to b
left to dunce. The Western States wer.
not then in a condition to secure this cm
rency for the very reason that thev mo
iipeded it. If the rule ol proportion w i'
to be disregarded, it shiuld have b-ien don
in tavor of the very Slates that now hav
the shrillest slnr.j. It was the duty
wis-; statesmanshio to see tint the cu
reiv-y was given where it would ue
the greatest s-rvice to ' the public. I
uiiy be asked it fie West was no
able ti take b mds, how would the
avail theui-elves ol this privil 'g? It 1 1
uet'on. ha 1 hceu reversed, and 11 ty mtili n

ot M i-sacliiiset:s. whic i would be mil:-!,
more lair than the present distribution, lb
p .ople of Illinois cold not have es'ablisli
nl the-e bulks, but the capitalists of N'v
England and New York would gladly h iv
established bulks in these States lor th
sake of the advantages giined No.v, t'ni
would not oni- have hei) i more lair, is an
one sees, hut it would nave a voi u d a gre
evil, to which I wil1 call your ntteiitioi.
Au.l iu c.onsidt ring this 1 will not go so I.
us to s:y th it a .y State s ioul l have 1
thiin its due sh ire. The. people of th.
North -rn Atlantic S ates, who hnl
about two tlnr ls of till,, the , currency
no not need this iiinount tor tneir
husiness purpose. Their mod-'S
conducting business do not require - this
torn) ol credit. tormerly the DanKs ul
the city ol New York.did not deem it worth
while to issue Holes lor cireulatio i.' We
now s e that at certain seasons of tlie year
they send currency to the-West to brio '
tor Aiitrd the crops.- When is is net r.tel-d
tor the-e jmrpo.se , it isa;cu nulited in vast
sums in the ciii s of New Yoik, II stou
and Pnil ide'p'ii i, where, as it is i.ol wan'e.l
for tegular business purposes, it is used to
promote unhealthy and demoralizing spec
ulations. If we turn our., attention to the
great agricultural States' of the West, we
find that they need currency in their tiusi
ness transactions, and that tii-y suii 't great
evils and losses Irom want of it.. What is
now going on., over nil of th -se great re
gions? It is necessary for the weliare ot
our country and lor the health and cnufoit
of our people that the wheat, corn, beef a .d
pork ot the Westshould .be sent to market,
not only to feed our own people, but by its
sale in foreign lands to pay the interests on
our debts and the articles we' purchase
abroad. .. :
This is the first great, financial necessity
of our country. To do this the best com
mercial paper is that which is made lor
this olij. cu It is payable at the commer
cial centers, at short date, ; Jt h s not onli
nu acceptance at the East, but is lortitied
by a bill of sale of the very prosperity
which Is bought by Its proceeds. Why is
It that this commercial paper midator
purposes so essential and meritorious
amply secured and having ab ut it every
feature which should comma!. d credit
can command the monstrous Interest ot ten
or twelve per cent. ? This is a grave ques
tion, alleeling the weliare ot every c.itzen
ot our land. There is a greav. wrong' hr.
at the Very.baris of the business prosperity
and personal comfort of the citizens oi
these United Statis. Wtien the Western
l.-aler in produce- goes to the hai.tr
es of Chicago, Milwaukee,. Toledo,
or other commercial cei ters of the iv'.-.-t
and off ts a draft, payable in an Eisteru
city; of undoubted credit, to ge; tli.j cur
rency to buy the wheat, beet; pork or pro
duce ot the Western farmer, he is charged
this monstrous Interest, and when he ob
jects that it is ruinous and unjust, be is
to'd that the banker can do better; that he
has, no currency of his own; t!ia$ he can
not get it for himself ; that tne whole vol
ume authorized by Congress Iia4 been tak
en up iniinly in the Kisttrn States ; that,
iu ordiir to get this currency, the bankers
may go to the Eist and borrow it, and
must pay an intcie.-t lor Its use, and then
he must charge all that ' interest, and an
other interest as a compensation lor I im
se.lf.. Then, says the borrower, I lind that
( must pay interest to two bankers.
Is it right that. Rhode Island, or Massa
chusetts or New Yirk.. should tiave thi
share of currency which belongs to our
Western States ? Are not we, the citiz-m.
ot the West, forced to pay to these E isten.
States interest upon the currency which
rinlittullv belongs to us? If I must pay
you, the banker of the West, and the bank
er ot the East, ten or twelve per cent. In
terest, when 1 ought to pay but one-halt
that amount. I must take it oat of the price
which I pay to the farmer for his produce.
Now, all this is true, and here is the great
wrong, which tends to produce ill-fecliug
between the States ; a jeatousv of the cred
itor States, an. I a sense of "injury which
harms the National credit. '
This unwise distribution of- the cur
rency lies at tlie foundation of much
ot the feeling in certain sections ol
this country against the bondholders,
lit - U no nniisual thing to siee it

Western cities, that the grain market is

Now, If with w'se stitesminsliip. under
this same jNntlona' banking system, care
had been used to place this capital where!
was needed, the share which w mid have

never h ive remained idle, or have been em
ployed for hurtful purposes. There would
al tv ays have been U3e for that capital there,
which would have promoted prosperty,
and a vanced the healthy enterprises of
gioit and growing communities.
Tuis error of our rulers is attended with
anotl er great evil. There was no other
provision made for the Sout!.; .no care tak
en to revive their prosperity, so that l
Dfeoule might aid in advancing the prospt r
ity of our land. It is for our Interest as
well as theirs that their pursuits should
again be made prosperous. We find that
this error in the distribution of our-cur-rency
is crushing our business with enor
mous rates of interest; lessens the prices
which the farmer gets for his produce, in
jures our carrier and harms b-th our do
mestic and foreign trade; and is a national
evii which s ioul I hav -. been corrected, but
it has not even received the attention of tlie
party in power, cheers.
Tiiere are other gr-at wrongs to which I
will briefly allude, and which -I will dis
cuss more at length on other occasions.
We sav that taxation should be equal
upon evry soecies of property, accorJing
to its re il value The R-puMieans say so,
too. Thev declare so in their fourth reso-
lirion: " That it is due to the labor ol the
nation that taxation shall be i dualized."
With this declaration upon their lips will
