Fellow Ci'ii'zck.?:?It bns been my
misfortune or good fortune, as the
may be, to have bad the unceasing hos?
tility of certain politicians in this district
since the inception of my political life,
But It is my cheerful duty to congratu*
lute the people of this district as well as
myself, on the tact that this latter day
canvass has been emdubtcd with more
regard to the proprieties oi life, than
any of its predecessors. Two years age
a forlorn hone of "the disaausned" con?
cluded that they had perfected all the
arrangements and combined all th? ele?

caucuses vigorously. They tormed al?
liances, offensive and defensive, of the
most bewildering description, and con
spired deeply and earnestly to mak
common cause against me.and toobtai
and embellish by their superior politic,
wisdom, the seat in the National Con

believing me to have done my duty
have vindicated me emphatically in th
face of this factious opposition, an
their Industrious efforts have anly Big
uaily miscarried. To illustrate Iwi

To illustrate, In: again repeats tl,.

he cannot get the whole. But when arc
these negotiations to end? They have
been promised for thittcen years, and
not a single oiler has been made by the
creditors as a class, or by any considera?
ra. The Gen. wholly
fails to tell us. He can drift along on
that non-committal and high BO
form formany years to come. In
the mean time, what is to become ol
our state government, our charitable
and educational institutions, our si '
our unpaid teachers-perhaps ho would
enter into "friendly negotiation?" with
them?while our debt is growing daily
and the State committing the "disg
ol misapplying tbe school fund, until
now it has robbed that fund ol about
eleven hundred thousand dollar.-. Bui
we receive seme consolation Irom the
General, wherein he says if we have to
meet the debt it will ??not be as op?
pressive as the advocates of forcible re
adjuslmt ?it arc in the habit of represent
How can you do it without increasing
the taxes for that purpose. Why
smother it with vague generalities? why
not state explicity what you propose to
i\o. and when you propose to do it ?
Why not come squarely down like
those in favor of paying the last dollar
and advocate an Increase of tax to what?
ever amount may be necessary to pay
the interest on the whole fifty lo seven
ty-five per tent, or on the other hand
joui with theBeadjusters who favor th<
absolute control by the State of her
revenues, the maintenance of her edu?
cational and charitable institutions, in
short the preservation of her very exis?
tence a- a Commonwealth and thus
give to the people peace and prosperity
and to ?he Halls ol Legislation fret
from this vexed question.
In regard to the currency the Gener?
al is equally as unsatisfactory as to his
own position, while ho greatly misrep?
resents mine. I have constantly said
that I (did not think we had money
i novgh to answer the wants of the
try, but that great caution shsuld
lie observed in its expansion lest we
might go boyond the point of a sound
and stable medium. That as contrac?
tion had brought ruin on the country. I
and am in favor of reversing the
action 9\ the govi rnment and Increasing
the currency until we reached the point
ofa healthy circulation and as there
was no mode of ascertaining just ?here
inflation would begin, that experiment
alone could detenu,ne the question.
The General is again indefinite in the
statemont that be lavai- as far as pa-si
hie a return to the "principles Of finance
which were understood and practiced
by the Fathers eftbe Republic." Does
bl mean he favors shin plasters, repud?
iation or making contracts payable in
tobacco, all of which were ''understood
and practiced by the Fathers for what
does he mean?
Near Iva years ago in a sneeeh on
this question in Congress I eloeedwilh
the following summary :
