THE CAMPAIGN. A DEMOCRAT ON THE SITUATION
HON. B. F. PARKS,
Delivered at Joliet, Ills., Saturday,
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen :
I am entirely conscious of the pecn
liarity of my position to night. It is
not a position ot my own seeking
lean ago 1 bad tbe bonor of meet
ing some of the Democracy of Joliet
at House's lirove. i there made
Democratic speech with which they
were pleased, and for which I was
complimented. They were 'kind
enough to invite ce to this city our
years ago for the purpose of address
ing tbe Democracy oa tbe issues in
Tolved in that campaign. .
When 1 made those speeches I
thought the ideas I enunciated were
true I think they are true to-day.
l made inem ror .Democratic men
and Democratic measures. I then
detailed to you the results of Radi
cal Republicanism I toldyoa that
as the peculiarly dangerous exponent
of Radical Republicanism, Horace
Greeley stood . solitary and alone.
Yon cheered me on these occosions
you said I was right.
o day I am here again before
you. iESWiIloreason to change the
opinions I uttereTolrQrcvious occa
sions. When I was lastlft-Jheld
np before you aa an enemy of
country as an enemy to its peace
and prosperity, and its every interest
Horace Greeley, and claimed that
his name ought not to bo presented
to the American as an exponent of
the views of tbe Democracy. You
were kind enough, on that occasion,
to cbcer me and applaud wbat I said
b our years have passed since then
am nere again, sun tbe same man
as before. I am here for the pur
pose of saying that as long as there
a Democratic party, composed of
Democratic men, and representing
Democratic measures, my heart
swelling with enthusiasm at the re
collection of its past glories, I stand
before yon to-night, having the same
convictions, Holding tbe same pnnci
pies, faithful to the same ideas I en
tertained four years ago.
Joliet and Aurora have a comma
nity oi interest : tney are ootu man-
nlactunng towns. X nave resided in
Aurora for twenty-two years, and
have always been a Democrat I
have answered every bugle call, and
have attended every mass-meeting in
those long years. I have stood there,
that time, upon the bleakest
watch-tower of that party in this
great State, and have been denounced,
banished, proscribed and scoffed at
and yet I thought 1 was right, and I
believed that it wa neither manly
nor honest to desert the party, so
long as it was true to itself. My
indentures were wiih the Democratic
ship, and taken for a Democratic
voyage ; but when they declve her
unseaworthy. and turn her over to
tbe underwriters for the insurance,
every principle of maritime law
and oi common sense tbe sailor la
released from all obligations, and he
may look over the ships in port and
take which ever he pleases. When,
January last, I was approached
upon the question of deserting the
party, and surrendering everything
we had straggled lor every princi
ple that we had entertained and
cherished in the long course of our
lives I told them my indentures
were with the Democratio ship, and
that as long as the mainmast stood
and the sails were spread for a Dem
ocratic voyage, I would be faithful to
her. As a Democrat, born in a wes
tern home, they have a right to com
mand my fealty, so long as tney are
faithful to the trust reposed in them ;
but when they say to me that this
thing is all gone; that the whole
scheme of Democracy is ended ; that
every principle for which we bavo
struggled, and everything which we
have said in years past is a lie ; that
our wboie being is a irsud ; tben l
say to them I cannot go with yon in
contingency ot that kind. When
principles and men are abandoned
wben, witn a.uuu.uuu or Democratic
voters in this country, the brain, the
heart and the conscience of the party
gone, and there is no man worthy
carry your standard no man un
der whose banner yon can march
honor gone manhood gone princi
pies discarded ; if that is your con
dition O, Democrats, surely you
ought to die ! If among tbe 3,000
0Q0 Democratic voters on this conti
nent there is no uian worthy to re
ceive your votes no man worthy
your suffrages that yon must
throw aside every principle of your
life, that you must cast away your
hate, your love, your very shame,
and in agony of soul, take to your
hearts your life-long enemy the
man you have always abhorred, de
tested and scorBed then I say I
cannot go with you.
In Whig times if there was a princi
ple to carry, peculiarly obnoxious
the Democratic ' party, Horace
Greeley held that principle in the
extreme. If at any time there was
any measure brought forward dan
gerous to the liberties of this people,
Horace ureeiey w?s us earnest advo
cate. If there was anything propos
ed by the Republican party peculiar
ly obnoxious to yr u, Horace Gree
ley was us strong supporter, u
there was anything in the constitution
that wai unsuitable to the uses of bis
part, Horace Greeley was the first
ant it set aside. If there was
ever any principle that you cherished
since your party was organised,
Horace Greeley was your antagonist
that principle. I can assert, with
out fear of contradiction, then, that
aa far as principle is concerned, not
tingle one held by you and me in
common. In Democratic times, when
we had a good man we kept him.
We elected Jefferson twice, Madison
twice Monroe and Jackson,' both
twice, (Load cheers.) And when
we came to the imbeciles and do-
nothings, the old bachelors and worn
out politicians like Buchanan, we let
them elide alter one term, and nom
inated some one else. I aay then, in
every principle you have advocated
before tbe American " people your
avowed and life-long enemy has been
Horace Greeley. Looking at it ia
this light, where is the man who dares
ask Democrats to vote for Horace
Greeley as the embodiment of their
Let us look a little further. He
has not only been our antagonist
upon every question - of principle,
but lie has gone beyond the bounds
of ordinary, legitimate and nngen
tlemanly conduct in his hatred of us-
Not only has he denounced and spit
uoon everr principle held bv us, but
has said ot us, in aTsass particular
ly of our county to IUmoi, that the

at the record of Horace Greeley!
Away back in November, 1861, right

Tribune, came out and declared that
if the South wanted to get oat of t e
Union, thev miaht CO. John C. Cal-
, o o 4
houn never expressed or advocated
secession clearer, stronger and less
adulterated than Horace Greeley did
then. Yon may say that it was an
ephemeral production of tbe hour ;
but seven years afterward he takes
that paragraph from his newspaper
article, and repeaU it in his "History
of the HebclHon," thus making it a
part of the "permanent history of this
wuutry,, . . ..

were at Niagara Kails. .Horace Gree
ley went to work, and contrived , to
enter into negotiations with them.
What were the results ? He advised
Mr. Lincoln that we bad better pay
the South $400,000,000 for tbe darkies

He went to Yicksburg, and another

When he was elected President,

"the even tenor ol his way,'" doing
his duty faithfully and impartially.
The Democracy have added to
this country every single acre or ter
ritory that has been acquired since
the declaration of independence,
nearly a hundred years ago, except
the territory of Alaska.
. Stephen A.' Douglas used to say
(i'VYe want Canada we want Cuba,
and the isles of the seas we want an
ocean bound republic" ' And for the
addition of Alaska who is responsi
ble if not Wm. H. Seward, and what
harm has the ocqnmtioa of that ter
ritory done ? .
It is said that Grant did not consult
Sumner. What of it? With all
Sunn 3t 's .lassical knowledge he never
put a sentence, a phrase, or an idea
in the English language that ten
years after his death will be spouted
by tbe boys and girls in our school
houses when they make their speeches
at exhibitions, as they now spout tbe
orations of Webater, Clay, Calhoun
or Patrick Henry. Grant did not get
on bis knees to bira ; be allied, hiaa-1

eighteen months of Andrew Johnsons
administration and the first eighteen I
months of Grant's administration.
On whisky Johnson collected $40,-
000,000 in that time, and Grant col

no'se Is made by the advocates of the
Cincinnati platform about amnesty,
What uid the Republican party under
Grant do on this question? They
gave amnesty to all rebels except
seventy or eighty. Jeff. Davis and
ohn J. Breckenridge and their like
are cot included in amnesty. When
they do works meet for repentance
they may again be admitted to full
communion, but so long as their
hearts and souls and minds are op
posed to tbe welfare of our common
country and in favor of splitting it
into fragments, tliey can be allowed
to enjoy an oiium cum dignitate in re
tirement from places of public trust
and public confidence.
One platform is a peevish, scold

THE PRESS OF GERMANY ON GREELEY
When the news of Greeley's nom
ination at Cincinnati first reached
Germany, the leading liberal journ
als in that country, with one accord,
expressed amazement and disgust,
and predicted that the- Germans in
the United States would never sup
port such a ticket Since that time
their expression on this subject have
grown atroneer and stronger, and
now it is asserted by the Nuremberg
Courier, a widely-circulated demo-
cratic newspaper, that there is in
Germany not a single liberal newspa

of Greelev to the Presidency a great
calamity and a serious blow struck
at the respect which the United
States now commands in Germany,
On the other hand, the organs ol ul-

A DIRTY TRICK.
of the dirtiest tricks we have
noticed up to this time is that of the
German Greeley press in circulating
a speech purporting to have ' been
made by Senator Wilson; who ccc
pies a place on the. Republican ticket
as vice-presidential candidate, about
twenty .years ago, ln. wnich. tbe
speaker simulates the most, rabid
Enow-Notblngisra, snd makes nse of
the most infamous expressions with
reference to the Germans. The charge
was first made by an obscure paper
in the Northwest and was immedi-1
ately copied by the Westliche Post,
bat denounced at once by several
journals as either an intentional or
unintentional change ot persons.
The speaker was not Senator Wilson, j
bat a member of Uongresaot tbe
same name from Indiana, who is now
for Greeley, ftlt was . shown at the
same time that Senator Wilson was
always an opponent of Enow. Noth
ingism..In spite of . the fact that
these corrections have been before
tha public fore some time, the Ger
man Greeley press has. taken notice
of them, and the so-called 'abusive
speech ol "Senator" Wilson against
the Dutchmen' Is still circulated by
tnas press. .
TO LIBERAL REPUBLICANS.
j TheCmcinnaU of July 30th.
asks the folio wing pertinent questions
of Liberal Republicans ...
! What assurance have yoa that the
platform of principle declares a Cin
cinnati, and reaffirmed at Baltimore,
will be observed la-good faith? It
is understood alike by yourselves and
by the Democrats ; or bave your
new allies another and a different
interpretation suited to their past,
feelings and history?.
Is it credible that the submission
of the Democrats to Mr. Greeley,
consummated at-Baltimore in the
face oi strenuous opposition on tbe
part of the Bourbon wing, was made'
w ithout long and careful cotaidera
tion and satisfactory guarantees ? Do
you believe that a large and , well or-,
ganized political body, as was the
Democratic party, would suddenly
and entirely cast aside its old creed,
and, under the leadership of the. man.
whom it most hated, profess a faith.
that is abhorrent te all it haa hither
to believed, nnless it had full assur
ance of a sufficient compensation 7
Wbat compensation is possible
other than surrender into Demo
cratio hands of the reins of govern
ment, and a share of the spoils of of
fice proportioned to the number- of
Democratic voters? -
What change in the government
does the election ot Mr. Greeley
imply ? What is the measure of -your
strength as compared with that ot
the Democrats ; and what would be
the relative distribution of power as
between yon and them in the . two
houses ot Congress? Assume the
success of Mr. Greeley, and what
checks to Democratio aggressions.
legislative and executive, could yon
interpose if it should prove true that
the Democratio convention to the
doctrines of the; Ciacii!f4, platfom
are only apryuVwa. eei fes
Will you, representing-less than
one twentieth of the votes required
to. elect Mr. Greeley, have one-twentieth
of the influence and power that
will be : wielded by your more nu
merous allies? Concede that Mr.
Greeley and his ancient enemies have
made -no- compact - ox compromise.
what means-or resistance coma ne
oppo -to. a Democratio majority
in both houses of Congress, and to
the public sentiment of the people
who gave him office ?
Admit what is by no means true.
that yoa have just ground for serious
complaint against the present admin
istration, and what do yoa propose
gain by a charge ? Can yoa doubt
that Mr. Greeley, if elected, wul be
controlled by Democrats, and that
they wul fail to pursue, that policy
which has governed their action in
the past, and has influenced all their
hopes in the future ? -Is it probable,
or reasonable, even, that the princi
ples which they have embodied in
the platforms ot their national con
ventions, from 1860 until the present
year, are really changed through a
convection or right or duty ; or is u
true, as we have hithertofore asked,
that this change is only apparent, and
used as a cloak'nnder which their
real designs aie hidden?-- -
Aside from his stand upon tne
slavery and tariff; questions, has 'Mr.
Greeley shown such fixedness of
purpose and stability of character as
will commend him to your favorable
consideration as a fit President of
this country ?
These are questions to be carefully
considered, for as your answers shall
so will be oar futare as a nation.
SENATOR SUMNER AT HOME.
Massachusetts has always been in
habit of standing by her publio
men, but Sumner has exhausted her
patience and powers of endurance. As
index to the feelings of the Repub
licans of that State, we give the fol
lowing extract from an article in the
Boston Gazette, an independent jour
nal, which was prompted by the Sen
ator's letter to the colored people :
" It has been customary with ni of
England, who have written, and
spoken ot Chas. Sumner, to ever ac
to him the meed of sincerity ;
though even his political friends
have realized him to be charo-eahla
with the weakness ot a one-idea extre
mist, yet all have been ready to con
cede him honesty. But how about the
matter now, when we find Mr. Sumner
sacrificing even that one idea to a bit
ter spirit of personal hate ? Years ago
immoiatea mmgeil upon tbe altar of
personal vanity, now he completes
sacrifice by an exhibition of syco
phancy to bis lue-longgenemies, in order
spite the President, who has, to be
sure, persisted in ignoring him first,
last, and always. We begin to think
that Mr. Grant saw through the Mas
sachusetts Senator more clearly than
know him at home. It is well un
derstood iri Washington that on the
accession of Mr. Grant to office, Mr.
Sumner at once assumed that he was to
control party affairs at the capital, but
soon found that he had to do with
one who was not accustomed to give
the control where he was entrusted
with command. From that hour Sum
ner has behaved like a disappointed
school-boy, and has taken every means
his power to show his petty -spite
and to revenge himself on the Presi
dent, by opposing every 'administra
tion measureJthat has been presented.
"Mr. Sumner, in a long Congression
career, has ."done tbe State some
service;" we all know that,. but no
representative of the people who was
ever sent to w aahington bas cost tbe
United States so many millions of
dollars by .bitter and useless discus
sion and general opposition's Charles
Sumner. His never forgotten person
ality hKs been obtruded on all and
every occasion, and no opportunity ior
speech . making has ever - been lost
The classics have been, exhaust
ed to furnish quotations for his
speeches, as little pertinent to the
subject in hand as they were obtru
sive in the matter of good taste. - As
nave said, millions ol dollars nave
expended to meet needless delays
and interruptions canted by his intense
egotism. The professed champion of
colored race, he has yet often er
baulked and delayed their interest by
abstract notions and proverbial
stubbornness than .even those who
openly opposed the measures. He has
been significantly declared to be a man
"impracticable amendments and im
possible ideas,"and is, politicaUyspeak-
ing, the most imprudent and reckless
our leading men, and of course from,
date has lost his prestige with
every true Republican supporter ot
Union." - -
