The United States supreme court

that shares of stock in uationul banks

tho court is : "They arc a species of
personal property which is in onosciiso

A SENSIBLE SPEECH.
Ex-Governor Palmer made a very
sensible speech to a Springfield audi
ence, during the late canvass in that
city for municipal officers. I f Mr. Pal
mer were it small politician, willing to
conserve his own personal interests at
the expense of the interests of tho pub
lic, ho would not havo spoken at all in
the peculiar canvass that was brought
to n conclusion on lust Tuesday ; but
ho is not a small politician ; ho is a
gentleman of great ability, who truck
Ics to nobody speaks his mind ou all
occasions and allows the consequences
to take care of themselves.
Springfield is u democratic city. It
is very democratic, and party discipline
is sternly onforced by the party load
ers. Iho scratching of a democratic
ticket is an offense that creates a great
outcry against the scratchcr, and is be
lieved by most of tho members of the
party to bo an unparilonablo sin. Mr.
Palmer has been in sympathy with tho
democrats for houictiine past, nnd the
members of tho party in that city had
learned to believe he had imbibed their
prejudices and would swallow any nuu
scous dose a democratic caucus might
commend to his lips. They mistook
In tho canvass there wcro three tick
ets the democratic, the republican aud
tho law-and-ordcr ticket. Mr. Palmer
espoused the cause of the law-and-ordcr
ticket, aud iu its interest made the
speech to which wo havo referred. Ho
said that, in the last seven years, he had
participated in municipal canvasses iu
Springfield, but had never heard that
the city had interests requiring care.
Ho had heard in times past that tho
republican or tho democratic party re
quired the election of its ticket, hut
had not heard the iuteresU of Spring-
ueiu urgea. I'oluical parties were
good in their places, but they had, in
the speaker's opinion, no proper place
in municipal affairs, uml h0 desired
voters to support thu best meu for each
of the offices to be filled.
1 ho governor thou referred to the
attempt now being made to array classes
and iutercsts in opposition to each
other. "I am," says he, "impatient of
these so-called foreign-born citizen
meetings, aud the oft-repeated charge
ot intolerance thrown upon tho Amcr
