I congratulate' yon," my fellow; citizens,
dDon vour good lortune to-day. I con
gratulate you upon this vast and imposing
assemblage of the people, opon the genial
and benignant sky under which you meet,
upon the sentiments, and principles, and
occasion that; have' brought you together.
You havc-assembled to testify your 'devo
tion to constitutional liberty, and to extend
heartfelt welcome to her great advocate
ajid defender. "-You have met hereto say
him ib'y your presence, We recognize
your-"great -I- ability,-: year , coin pre-
nenslve learning, your - pure ana scam-
ess character, . your. ; true patriotism
and your, profound devotion to-.freeand
Constitutional Government. - We are here
welcome you to the Capital of our State
and to listen to the Words of wisdom that
we know will fall from your lips." And
surely, my friends. If 'there ever, was a
time when words of wisdom Were 'needed,
is now. . It there ever was a time when
the teachings of wisdom-needed -reepect, it
now. Jl there ever was a time when
wise rulers were needed by the Republic,
is now.- We are in the nild;t of diffl'"Ul
tles and complications and dangers. The
old ' landmarks of the fathers have been
ruthlessly cast down, and we are floating
hither and thitber upon . an untried sea of
peril, without rudder, or compass or pilot
guide us. It is time that there was an
end to all this.-' It1 is time that peace and
prosperity, and that;- Without which peace
and prosperity cannotexisw constitutional
freedom should be restored to the land.
But how Is this to be done? Not by fol
lowing the glare of mere military, glory,
nor by persistently following a path of evil
because we haveuntortunately set our feet
upon" it If we would see our country
once more tree and prosperous, we must
return to the fundamental principles of the
Constitution and choose for our rulers
statesmen able-to- comprehend them - and
profoundly devoted to their maintenance.
For our Chief Magistrate we must choose
such a man as he, whom I now have the
honor to present to you, Hobatio Sbymocr.
Governor Seymour, on being introduced
Senator Thitbman, said : ' : . .. .
I am glad to have the chance to stand be
fore the people of Ohio at the Capitol
of the State. It has given me great pleas
ure during my iourney to pass. through so
large a portion ot our country that I have
never.seen oetore not oniy oecause l nave
had unfolded before me its great plains, its
fertile fields, but becaus-3 I have bad also
an opportunity to meet so many of its cit
izens. It adds to that pleasure that I have
received from my political opponents those
courtesies which go so far to disarm the
asperity of the political canvass. I stand
before you now in no self-seeking spirit.
It is not oecause l wisn to cane upon my
self the cares, the anxieties and responsi
bilities of Executive office, but It is because
am' concerned at tbe condition of my
country. When I pass through your own
Croat sute. when .1 see Its lertile farm?.
when 1 meet its sturdy laborers, I feel, if
there is not unqualified prosperity here, it
not because God has not given us a fair
heritage; it is not because labor is not
honestly put forth, but it must be
because mistakes lf have i-Jbeen made
those who conduct our pub
lic' affalrB. "When I turn to the com
mercial articles of your newspapers to-day,
see it is said that the price of your pro
duets goes down, I see it said that the pork
and corn that you raised by your labor, is
not bearing that price which you had a
riifht to hope.; This is a serious thing It
Vlon't concern mere money making; is eon
cerns the well being of the families of this
country, by tbe fireside and in tbe midst of
the family circle. It is further reaching
than this. Ail men agree tnat tc is upon

within the sound ot my voice to think well
before they declare by their votes at this
election that the policy of that party has
been right. You are to decide one way or
Hie other upon- this policy. It is -not
a question merely of men. It does hot
matter whether toy distinguished
opponent or myself should be elected, ex-
cipt aa these elections are the verdict of
the people upon tbe conduct of ;vour
rulers during the past four years.- How
happens it that siltlsb men in the marts of
commerce - can thus speculate upon your
nearest interests t l tmuK l cau tell you.
I do not stand here to-day to avow any
principle or assert any views touching this
question which I did not put forth years
ago liv the official position .which I then
held. ' I should feel myself wrong, knowing
the infirmities of human nature, it I felt
I had lormed the views which I present
to you now, while I have been before you
as a candidate ior offlci . 1 can point to the
record of the past to show you they were
formed when 1 owed a duty as Governor
of New York to the population of that
greac State. . Probably we could not help
one evil.'' If a debt was to be created, it
was necessarily - sectional. -. The bonds
could only be taken in the wealthier por
tions of tbe land. It was a great evil to di
vide Our country into debtor and Creditor
States. The men in power were bound to
see tnat they made as. little debt as they
could. .They created a. banking system,
and before they did so, they destroyed
vour banking system in Ohio and in every
State. They taxed them out of existence.
they took upon themselves the responsibil
ity; not only of giving you a currency, but of
giving it to you Iq.a talr way., ind they
do so ?' I held that that "banking system
was a bad one, - and as Governor ot the
State of . New York when the law waspasaf
ed authorizing our banks -tooraanize un-
-der It, I vetoed that law..; I could -not see
why government should print and secure
mils ana then give to -men- holding- three
hundred million loHnrs of bonds a privi
lege so valuable, which at one time, when
specie was low; taxed.. tbe people; thirty
millioos a year, or one-fourth as much as
cue interest upon tue jingnsn national
debt. 'Let' "that i go J by If thei'syg
tern was right or wrong, H ousrht
wton have . been fairly, carried ,.ouL. and
bound to give It back by some fair rule.
What did they -do? vThe people of New
York had a great many bonds; New Eng
land bad a great many bonds. The East
made a great deal of money out of the war.
You made some, bat not as much. " When
this privilege was given-out they should
have said: "Here are the great States- ol
the' West which' want currencv because
they do thelr business' with ' it; and they
shall have It accotding to the rale of, pro
portion.l If tbey departed , from that rule
they should have given , more to the West
tnan tne ii.iS. we, use panic. checks in
stead of currency In our business in' New
York. The New York banks, under the
old system, would not be at the expense ol
printing Panic .bills, so. little, were thev
used. .They1 would hot do it now but for
the reason that it Is m monopoly -worth
great' ..deal iv of ; nloneyi;:u i Jin i'-. dis
tributing this, currency,, tbey should have
said Ohio has nearly three millions of peo
ple, and is therefore entitled to nearly one
tenth of the-whole-amount, and If she
cannot, take her amount, men must come
here irom JNew xork and JNew .England to
enjoy the privilege. They , would . have
brought their capital here, and you would
have to-day thirty millions of circulation,
instead of what yon have get. ,- You would
not only have; bad; this currency to buy
your produce, but you would have had
this additional capital all the year round
for all your business. 1 Illinois wants more
currency -than you do, and : she- has
only about ten millions, while the State of
Massachusetts, with one-bait the popula
tion ot Illinois, has flfty-seven millions.
though" they do iiot-wanb;currency there
oecause tne business ot Jlassachusetts Is
not carried on and never was. with the us-
of currency. You know they do not want
It, because when vou want it from them
and pay interest-enough tor it you get It.
L,tt us see wny it is tnat you men or Uhio

there . men . ga t and, , borrow larger sums.
withdraw it from the market,, and lock .it
up fonhe purpyse'of making money scarce;
that knocks down' stocks, It knocks down
the property they want to buy ; perchance
it is your corn; you .cannot set: money .-to
forward and they, nave the means to, buy
wneu -they are ready, and In this
way they make a monstrous speculation.
That has-been -done time and again. Tbey
are doing it to-day Jn New , York for the
purpose of putting down rail road, .stocks.
and in doing that tbey put down your corn
and pork. - We sefc these evils' because the
Government did what .was clearly unfair
in distributing this circulation.- ?! What has
been the result? .You think you are a free
and independent citizen' of Ohio. ; Perhaps
you are for some purpose?, but you find
that there: is a -ppeculative power arising
from this bad legislation which steps into
your fields and warehouses and strikes
down the value of that which is the. pro
duct of your labor. 'That is a large reduc
tion from your independence,; It curses you
and it curse us. .When men have,, bought
up tbe railroad stocks, or corn, and beef
and pork; the currency -'wbieb Is not
needed" here iu'tbe -winter -will 'roll into
New York.! The bnnker goes to the spec
ulator aud offers to lend him money at low
interest. - .You pay ten or twelve per cent,
interest for money, because you have to
borrow of the east, when in New York it
is lent at five or &ix per cent. The specu
lator-takes it, and goes into tbe market
and buys up this very property .which has
been cut gown in value,' and by holding,
outs up Us price against the laborer of the
east.n It goes up so high that it cannot be
purchased, and it is not got out ol the way
of your next crops. Every man who .de
Sires to go into this election doing bis
duty to himself and bis ' country,
can trace these things out ' for himself.
The records, the records show you where
this currency was distributed. Did. they
distribute your .quotas for men to go to
the battle field in the same way t Oh. no.
Ohio. Illinois and: Indiana had a bard rule
applied to them, by. which tbey sent num
bers to the war beyond tbeir proportion of
population, because they did not make
population the basis, but able-bodied men.
For the first time in tbe world our .New
England friends were exceedingly modest;
they declared that you were a much more
able-bodied people' than they - were.
Laughter. 1 Was the monopoly of pitting
out bank bills given to you as you fought f
No. . According to your population ? No.
It was given to those who were already
the owners of the vast proportion of the
government bonds. 1 Cheers. - It . was un
equal, there was no need of it; no man can
give a reason for it or has ever tried to do
go. They cannot say they were "not warn
ed, for if there was bo higher warning giv
en -than I could utter as Chief Magistrate
of the most populous State of this Union, I
protested against it as a wrong done to
you. It was not for me to look out for
your interests directly, but It was my duty
as Governor of the State of New York to
know what made our prosperity. We
have the greac commercial city of the
Union in our borders. We have lour mil
lions of people. I looked to see what made
us great,and I found it was you ot thet West.
We sell your products at New'York.
We buy in return what you want in lor
eign lands. We carry your property on
Our canals and railroads, and it diffuses
'wealth -all over. I found that it was my
duty, in studying the interests of the State
of New York, to take care that you, were
not Injured. I protested against sec t ion -alizing
the currency, and laying the foun
dation of the evils which now afflict you
of the State of Ohio and all the other ag
ricultural States. I saw that this was full
of evil to my own constituents. When
nroduce is duC up by speculators, as I have
explained, tbe laboring man of the east
suffers. It 18 a uouoie wrong a wrong to
Che producer in the west and to the con
sumer in the east. (A voice, "That Is so."
Cheers.) - . . i .- '.
Men of Ohio, yon may be willing to bear
these things for yourselves, but as a citi
zen of New .York. I do implore you to
have pity upon our laboring poor in onr
own State. . Cheers... You must judge
how tar you care lor your own interests,
but I have a right to stand before you and
plead lor the -interests of the poor in our
great commercial cities of the east.' I will
not attempt to follow this argument but

or seven years to sectlonalize power. Let
me show you how this is done. You know
when we formed our Constitution we said
that we would keep alive State Rights. To
do this we would let the smallest State
have as many Senators as the largest State.
That was meant for their protection and
for the protection ot. all, to-show more
-clearly that this was a limited partnership:
eternal as the bills, enduring as time, but
limited none the less, i Now bow has that
feature: of our Government been so per
verted as to produce these great evils of
which I spoke? Look at the Senate. 'A
majority of the people of the United States
, live in the nine States ot New York, Penn
sylvania,' Ulna, Indiana, . Illinois, lieu
'tucky, Missouri, Wisconsin and Michigan.
I think I have named them all. Tney have
: eighteen Senators one-third of the Sen
; ate- The people of Ohio agree 'to that so
long as it is the fair-working of ourinsti
. tutions. according to the original compact.
'- but when it is made to invade your, rights
i you ought not, to ay the least, to approve
or 10. wnen mis government, puts the
. power into- the-, bands of, the' , Senate, and
j then-fills that, Senate with sham States
' and with States without' population, and
gives It a control over your -afiairS' which
does not! rightfully belong .'toit, that is an
; inj ustice ' to , the. majority of the people
ol this country. The Senators from the
; Western States, not seeing the bearing of
- it, -voted for it because it was said they
; wanted to 'Vote down. President Johnson,
and by these measures tbe people of Ohio,
numbering nearly three minions ot pco
pie, have .been practically disfranchised
? There' are twO men sitting in the Senate
. ot the United States .from. the State of
, Florida, one who went from, the State of
JNew xork, an unknown man, and
J the other from some other quarter,
who do not represent the white people ot
that State, and does not even represent the
negroes beoause- they do not know that
there.ia a Senate, and yet they cast the
'i same vote' with the Senators from? the
i great central1' States: It I 4iot merely a
i wrong . done to the people of Florida; it
, isa wrong .done, to i you when two such
f men. become your rulers.' Add up these
1 States. . There are ten or twelve Senators

What next has-: been-, done? They have
gone on and increased unduly the power
of that body until you find that you have
no voice there. The executive power was
transferred to the Senate in a large meas
ure.'. You have a voice according to your
population in electing a Presidents .Tbey.
crippled the President: they took away
from him all power ot temoval; theyJhave
taken ' the '''executive power as " far
as they , -could, and. have -given it

Republican friends, you may be pleased
with this lor a little while; you may think

mends;.. put is this great and wise states
manship ?, Is 'this far-sighted? Is this
looking down the iuture to the time that
Will surely come, when you will have in
terests Conflicting t with- the ; States thus
made?, I could detain you here a long
while to show you how,.step by step, the
Executive power has been absorbed. In
another -way it absorbed the power of the
Housed .Representatives. r
I We have a great deal of patronage in this
country. There are sixty thousand office
holders. ..The Senate controls all that; the
President cannot get rid of if. '' It has be
come the central power to a vastly greater
degree tpau it ever was before. The House
of Representatives are in no small degree
dependent oil the senate. The terms ot
Senators are much longer, there are iewer
ot them, and, they are so - fortified that
popular changes cannot remove them.
They have taken ' the . power ' from
your '''President," 'whom 'you can
elect . nce':dn i four i years, j. Thev
have made' bioi to-day .what he ought nevt
er to have beeii for the honor aud dignity
of the American people. You saw bim
who1 sat in' tbe chair of Washington, the
ehief : magistrate of your country,, who
heretofore you boasted was a man who held
more honorable power than any monarch
in the world'dragKed, like a criminal belore
a tribunal-that decreed His sentence before
tbey heard a. word ot testimony.1 f Voice,
"That's bo," and loud cheering. . Look at
these acts of Congress foE.yourselves. See
the changes that have been "wrougbt'in.the
structure of J your Government- to carry
power in every instance to thatbody which
does not represent the people of the'eouu-
try. (, my Kepuonpan mends, is it wise
for you by your ballot, wben about to fex'
ercise one of the most 'sacred duties of
American citizenship, to Say that you ap
prove of tbis ? Cries ot '-No, no." The
resolutions which placed my opponent in
nomination did not declare his sentiments:
they declared their own; they declared that
tbe policy ot their party had been right,
and when yon vote their ticket you declare
the same thing. From ' time to time the
ablest men of the' Republican party have
come forward witn words -ot.'j protest
againsttbeir exercises, but they have been
trampled down ; as tbe maddened herds of
buffalo' on the Western plains trample
down tbeir leaders, if they stay for a mo

One after anotner tney nave gone uowu
until no man dares protest any longer. Are
you ready, my Republican friends, to give a
new 'impulse to this? Think of-the -result.-
T stand before you perhaps -as
an . individual more .- concerned . . than
any other man,, except my.- opi oaent.'
What is it to me .whether I shall stay In'
private life or go 'to the performance' of
duties from wnicn every xnoughttui man
must shrink ? Let ,-me isay, that no man
ever stood before the country as a candi
date for that . office, no " matter bow.
strong the convictions of duty were that
forced him into that position, who was not
filled with most serious convictions, with
regard tor the sacredness of the trust. I
would not believe, and would repel with
srorn ariv attack- on mv ODDOnent that
should assume that he did not mean what
was right: 'As. Go 1, looks into, my heart.
I cannot think ot .a man, I care not how
wanting in virtues In other respects; who
could - look : at. the vast interests of this
country, who could see its greatness and
thiak of its future, and wt tremble, and of
fer fervent prayers that he might have wis
dom above man's wisdom to guide him in
a place like this." flmmet-se cheersl This
Urge crowd which 1 see before me, where
will it be in a few rolling years? - .How
much does it matter to you, Republican or
Democratic friend, Whether you shall or
shall not have a thrill of triumph or a
pang ot defeat in a few days from - now ?
But how Important it is that that decision
should be right! How important that
neither our passions, or even ouf.honest
mistakes, should bring evil upon this glo
rious land. -Has legislation been equal ?
What is unequal is generally unfair. Trace
it, down, not alone in the distribution of
your currency, not atone in the conspiracy
to make a central power and to destroy the
representative character of Our govern
ment,,' but as it affects .classes .of , men.
Whv should . one. man be taxed and
another .' man . go "untaxed? In- the
very resolutions of tbe Republican party
thev said taxation should be eo.ual.
Why did they make It unequal ? Why do
they now change their fiont and denounce
us wno say tne same tuiug, as men wno uo
not care for the nation's honor. There ii
no thoughtful man who will look into
the f future iu view of the prect dents that
have ibeen set, the violence that has
driven men" lrom their seats in Congress
and the attempt to destroy the representa
tive-system of our Government, and not
feel that our country is on the road to great
peril? What is the Union they have made
with the South ? They would make It a
union of the dead ana tne living;, tney
would bind with manacles of iron a dead
South to a living . Noth. Cheers. We
jieed the prosperity of the South to helps
bear our great burden of indebtedness.
There has not been a blow struck at the
prostrated South that i did not strike every
cornfield in Ohio. They used to buy your
corn and Dork. . It used to go to market
when it was converted into the prbductsof
the South. The war stopped that. Xou were

The Political Hurricane in West
Virginia — Radicalism Blown
Sky High.
The Wheeling BeSLister, of Monday, has the
following In relation1 to the Democratic tri
umph in West Virginia. In another rarli'
oleln the-same"' paper .If gives 'the returns
from i the ' several i counties,:- showlog ' a
Steady and Increased gain Inall.',-.-, . ,;, ., ,
; The fact wUlrhe recollected that 'when the
Democracy wont into the field to battle tor
their principles, it was Under the most ad
verse clrcumstatfces.- : ''' ' :
i In each county Registers were appointed
by the Governor and reponsible ,to- him
alone, whose flat was irrevocable as to tbe
right of men to vote. Under their inanlp
ulation'someol the best aud truest Union
men" in tbe State were disfranchised as reb
els, because they wonld vote the Demo
cratic ticket, while men who fought during
the war as bushwhackers and spies for the
secession forces,' were allowed to vote as
true Union men. Under such circumstances
the victory is one worth bragging over. '''
' THE RESULT Iff W8T VIKCHrllAJ j i:. '
Although the returns from tbe late elec
tion in -this State come in with provoking
slowness, they indicate results of" the most
satisfactory - character. . , Tolerably ; com
plete reports are in - from about; eighteen
counties out of the fifty-three composing
this State. . They show a net Democratic
gain of about twenty-five hundred, and
the same ratio of gain throughout the
State," which rattocertainly exists, gives us
Wfcst ,VJxglni by a handsome majority.,,.,
' AH the Radical , strongholds, or . nearly
ail, have been, 'heard' from. ' In no' other
qnarter';could'ihe Radicals expeet -any
gains on the majority of. two . years 'ago..
Tbey have, failed . to-receive them- even
there,' and ot course can expect nothing
but greater losses in the Democratic reg
ions from which we are how beginning to
hear..'- ;: .;'; i:,i-iii8't i .i J :i--n j.tiil:
; . Welookjbr Democratic gains in the re
maining counties much larger than in those
that have been heard from. , It is true that1
their vote in the past has not been-very
heavy, but this fall their registration has
been immense, and in some sections unan
imously Democratic. The (Changes, too,
trom .radicalism to Democracy have been
very great, and these- alone" would almost
give us tne sute. Taking tbe new. votes
into- the count, we are satisfied that tbe
thirty odd counties whose returns are not
yet in, will give us amply suulcleut gains
to show a Democratic majority in the State
ot from' twenty-five hundred, to three
thousand. ,;; ... . , u. '.,- t
.In the Legislature we. have gained hand
somely. We have gained one Delegate' in
Jefferson, one in Hampshire one in Min
eral, probably one iu the Grant and Hardy
iistnctv two in the fleasants and Wool
District, and we hope two in Harrison
county, although it Is elaimed that Davi
and Wilson are beaten in the latter county
by about 13. Henry G. Davis, Esq, is un
doubtedly elected to the Senate from tbe
Hampshire District," and' Peterson, we
learn, has beaten Far'nsworth in the Ud-
shur. county . District. These are both
gains. ; In the. Greenbrier .region, and
other distant portions -of the State, . we
shall , certainly ' Increase " largely' our
strength in the Legislature. There is every
reason to believe that .we shall nave a ma-.
jority on joint, ballot, and thus be able to
send a Democrat to tne u. a. senate as the
successor ot Mr. Van Winkle. ': Two out of
the: three members of Cougress from this
State seem to be ours, and the case of the
third is by no' means hopeless. ' ' '
witn such results as these already as-
sured, how thoroughly, inspired for the.
work.:of- November '31 should be every
Democratic heart. The glorious deeds of
last Thursday thrilled tbe nation from one
end to tbe other, it we do not falter in the
work, we can give the State to Seymour
and Blair by an increased majority, and
will make permanent and secure tbe fruits
of Democratic victory for which we have
so earnestly longed and so diligently la-
oorea. , ..,! ..; . ... .. t.-... ., .

A Pen Picture of John Covode by
a Radical.
'The Oticago Tribune (Radical) has a cor
respondent, who thus pbqtpgraphs John
j Covodb, member of Congress for PennsyH
vaaia..-. ..... . .
'John Covode . is a .cunning, not over
scrupulous, money-getting" man, with a
passion for being a police detective".- He
keeps a low gaug'of fellows around Him in
Congress,, eome of whom look as it they
would steal vour Doeket-bandkerchier.
Notwlthstandin - these- factsr-eovode' run
upon the name he .bad clven himself of
'Honest John,' and aspires to be both Gov
ernor and Senator. lie is a jest ot a man,
with a country look, a cunning and mirth
provoking manner, and he ranks with
James Asbley and that set of Congressmen
that we can scarcely dignity with the name
of statesmen, and therefore sometimes call
them for short, 'blatherskites.'"-
Frauds.
On the day pf election, the Republicans
in tbis Township proclaimed that they had
polled every legal voter in the Township, aud
that there were but seven hundred and thirty.
all told, all votes received over that num
ber would be illegal ! - There were tght
hundred polled iu the township, seventy oi
which,' according ' to Radical authority,
were illegal I . Now, tbe question arises, as
the Rad ical gain over last year is seventy-Jive.
are tbey legal or fraudulent? Who can
tell ? Washington (C. H.) Register.
