three kinds f new londs. First,

second, lninds to the amount of two

Wo authorize our Secretary to sell
the-e bonds, if he can, at par. If he
can sell a boml at par that draws only
1 per cent, interest, then he can take
the money he gets for that bond ami
buy w ith it another bond that draw s six

we have gaincil in the way of econ

you will understand how we are able
to reduce taxation eighty millions of

Here is another great result. Is it
not better to pay oil" the debt in thh
way than to attempt to sw indle the
creditors out of it by i.-suing irredeem
able paper for the whole amount? To
have the m lose the debt and the peo
ple lose the currency? and noboily
gain any thing by it but the sw indlers
and shavers? I say, In the presence
of these great results, all Democratic
arguments fall to the ground, and

and protracted cheering.,
Now, I want to tell you something
about the condition of Indiana before
the 1st of January, LSfil, when the
Republican party came into power.
Up to the 1st of January, 1SÖ7, from
the first of April, 1840, the State lebt
had been reduced only ?-ISo,0'Ju in a
time of profound peace, and when
taxes were all tho time levied to pay
the State debt. Hut from the 1st of
January, 1k."7, lo the 1st of January,
1801, it had been increased some two
millions of dollars w ithin four years.
Why had it not been reduced in an
equal ratio during the former period?
What was the cause of it? Had gov
ernment, mismanagement sijuamler
ing the money of the State.
Mr. llendrieka, the other tiny, speak
ing of this at Vincennes, said: "Sup
pose this llepublican party has paid
oil the Sdate lebt, did they not tax
the people for it." Laughter. To
be sure we tlitl. We are not slight-of-liand
gentlemen. We do not claim
that we have found out a way to pay
the State lebt, or the national lebt,
without costing any hotly any thing.
No; we tax the people for If, but the
beauty of it i that we nj plied all the
money to the payment of the debt.
Not a dollar of it wa squandered;
every cent of it was faithfully applied.
What is the diflcrenee? Why, for tho
ten years preceding the war, the peo
ple of Indiana were continually taxed
to pay the State debt, as you w ill see '
by looking on the statute book during cratic party if they can get any con
that time, but the money was not siderablc portion of the colored vote

Then we come in with the Thir

Amendment, by which we declared
that every man horn In this country

of the State, and that it should not be

I localise we are the true fi lends of j
those that love liberty; w e are the true '
friends of the laboring loan; we have
alway s been in favor of making labor i
hotiorahlo, and hate slavery because'
slavery dishonored labor. The lie-!
publican patty has always been the
great labor party or this eountiy, ami
always will be. It is the true friend
of the man of foreign birth, and the
liberty-loving German falls naturally
into the arms of the llepublican party.
That is w here he finds his natural
resting place, ami now, as that great
German family is about to be embroil
ed in a bloody war with France, I
think the sympathies of the Itepubli
