"Fellow cliien i ol Masao county : I
apear beloreyou to-day to discus the
isue? that ilivi'de the two political par
ties of thi great country , but bclore I
enter upon that discussion I heir to May a
few words that are personal to myself.
It i charged agalnt me that J fled
from an Arkansas battle Held nnd
was dismissed from the army of this
great country in disgraee. This charge
is false; and that you may Iw able to
meet the slanders ol my iocs i will relate
the story concerning my dismissal.
When with my command In .Mississippi,

that both of my sons had In come RfHieted

and minister to my atllicled sons ; but
leave ol absence was re!usel me. Hence,
I deemed it advisable to hand in my res
ignation, believing that wheu I had
visited mv son-eyed children I could
return and re-enter the service. I acted
upon this determination and returned
home, where I lound that the atlliction
ol my children had not been over-stated.
They were suffering Irom a violent at
tack of sore eyes needing in that troub
lous time the care and sympathy of a
father. Alter the lapse of months I
heard nothing from my resignation. I
wrote hither and thither, to this man nnd
that man. but could get no satisfaction.
Finally I made up my mind to go back to
my regiment and again take up my sword
against the dcllant enemies of my coun
try. I did bo, and then lor the first lime
was informed that I had been dismissed
from the army of the United States.
Now, gentlemen, in all I did 1 had the

A reader of classic liclion would hardly
shudder at it ; but the fact that a man of
such meager ability is the nominee of
any party lor the position ol congress
man, is enough to inspire disgust suffi
cient to last until after the coming elec
tion. In all seriousness. Colonel Ben L.
Wiley, nominee ot the Republican party,
is the most unfit man for the high place
of congressman that ever loistcd himself
on any parly since the days of Washing
ton. J le lacks nbilily in every essential,
left the Iront when his command was lie

and willfully sacrificed a security, thereby

Wiley is a lit nominee of the managers
of a corrupt party, jossessing, i:i nn in

mendable In a Republican candidate, wc

the intellectual Lilliput of the Republican

Fields came to town and surrendered to
the authorities, and is now awaiting

ASSEMBLING OF TlIK SPECTATORS.
About 12 o'clock strcauis of nedestrlans
were wending their way across the city
to the jioinis of observation on the east
side. Vast numbers of strangers came
to see what everybody expected would
be a inagnillcent spectacle. The street
cart going up town were loaded with
citizens, and First and Second avenues,
as viewed from the heights, were black
witu pedestrians moving toward Nine
tieth street. About 2 o'clock the cross
streets and avenues from which views
could l! had were swarming with peo
ple, and the house-tops along the east
side were crowded. Thousands ol ve
hicles of every description 11 lied the
heights and cross stm ts.
Great alarm prevailed among the resi
dents of First avenue and the cross,
streets from Forty- coud to Niuetieth
streets, and some houses were entirely
deserted by residents, through fear of
rocks being hurled across the river, or a
huge wave being caused by the upheaval,

doors and windows oeu, as a matter of

had no fears whatever, and sjiectators
swarmed on the piers and low grounds di
rectly iu a line with the rocks, where
they would be drowned by thousands In
case of a wave. Police lined First and
Second avenues aud were stationed
amongst the crowds on the rock , to be
available iu cuae of panic.
A lilUU's LIK Ul.W.
A bird's eye view ol the point of in

at the heights between Ninety-second and
Ninety-sixth streets, at Third avenue,
w In re there aie no houses. I hcctly op-

In the river. But a triile to tho north
was n little Island, with a boat house, and

rock surmounted by an advertising
board. The rook to lie blasted lay be
neath the surface between the Island nnd

At 2 o'clock a f lint pull of smoke
arose from (he seovv, followed by the ie
port of the flrot gun, nnd there was an
instant commotion, erowds swaying
about in Iresh eagerness to got t gooil
standpoint. Ten minutes later ami an
other report, aud another hush fell upon
the multitude. The stillnos was un
broken Irom t hem until the third gun. at
ten minutes to three, which was followed
at precisely nine minutes to three by Ihe
explosion. In a straight nnd seemingly
narrow line running north and south for
about !KM) yards the water whitened and
arose. A dull thud was hoard. The
rocks trembled btmoath the feet of multi
tude as if from two quick, short pulsa
tions of nil an earthquake. The water,
which appeared to remain stationary for
an instant, broke ami spurted up iu dark
yellowish masses about 12 feet high,
mixed with dark smoke from tho dyna
mite. Then it fell back, and in a mo
ment lbaiivor resumed its usual icrccI'uI
aspect." 'ihen a mighty cheer arose from
all the northeast side ot the city, and
from steamers and boats add steam
whistles were blow n, nnd bells were rung
out joyously and all was over.
NO IMMAliK POXE.
The report was scarcely noticeable,
and not so much as a ripple vtascauted
upon the water, saw Just over the iot
where the explosion took place. There
was no concussion in the air, and not a
pane of glass w as broken in the city or
in Word's island.

ImmcdiaU ly after the explosion hund
reds of row boat.s sot out for Hell Gate,
each anxious to have the honor of first
passing over the scene of the explosion.
That the work was etheiually done is the
general feeling, and this also appears
irom the tact that Ihe police boat passed
over the spot safely.
Ward's iland was considered a lavot

Probably the finest view of the whole
explosion was from lloyl's phu-c, some
700 yards eat-t ol Ilalka's Point. The
ground is high, and Hell Gate did not ap
pear over 2-JU var Is away. It was from
thisDoiut that Gen. New ton and the tel
egraph operators sent the electric tluid
rushing into the mine. Suddenly a cloud
of water turned into w Idle vpray shot up
just off' Hallett's Point. This was bil
lowed by a cloud ol black smoke, rocks
and lumber, and at the same moment a
heavy shock ran through the ground and
gave one the impression of being lifted
about two inches. The sound of the ex
plosion was not loud, but low, rumbling,
and deep. A cloud of yellow smoke lol
towed the rocks, and in ten seconds the
water had become again level, no traces
being left but a largo yellow space
caused by mud and other substances
