private visit among relatives in W ouster.
Ihe moment it was leumcd, however,
that our former i itlen was among us,
L bowing bun to le a very able man.
many friends at this iuiitortant timo i;t
our exciting political canvas Oesired to
hear turn upon the isues involved, es
pecially as it had lieen twelve year since
be had addressed the Democracy of the
county. Although it was inconvenient
for him to remain, yet at the urgent re
quest ol many citizens ho was induced to
speak on Friday evening.
Although but a tew hour notice wa
given, the court house was tilled to it
utmost caoaehy, nud hi reception by
the crowd was a perfect ovation. It was
a plentire indeed to the hot ot friends of
Mr. Utterly, utter his years of absence, to
greet him again. Col. B. Kason, presi
dent of the lhird ward club, presented
mm to me audience.
He began by answering the slanders
cast upon the Democratic party by siicii
men us .Morton, Log an and Ingerstdl,
und especially iu reference to the Democ
racy being responsible lor the institution
of slavery und the fugitive slave luw. lie
quoted Irom prominent members ot the
Republican anil rdd Whig party, proving
their defense of both, and n a cliiimx. to
confound the blasphemous utterances of
Ingersoll on the subject, drew Irom hi
pocket autograph letters of President
Lincoln himself to Chief Justice Chase,
opposing the introduction ol resolutions
against the fugitive slave law into the
Republican national convention ot
in which Mr. Lincoln defended the law
as lcing constitutional, and whosi? opin
ion had fueli weight that no such Hank
appeared iu the platform ol tht Republi
can party of that great year.
Hie speaker then devoted an hour to
the financial question, and wc inii-t s.-ty
that it was the clearest discussion and
explanation of that vexed question thai
we have yet heard. He showed how at
every stage of Republican legislation up
on that question, the people had been
monstrously wronged , that the money
power dictated Its ow n terms, and con
gress yielded Implicit obedience.
His argument upon the reconstruction
measures ami the southern question was
masterly and convincing, exposing the
carpet hag rule ami Radical rascality in
all the southern slates until the liemo
cratic. party got possession of a state,
when peace, order nnd economical gov
ernment followed. While on this topic
he introduced many amusing anecdotes
and humorous illustrations that set the
house in a perfect roar ol laughter.
Ho closed by showing the absolute lie
cesity lor nn' active, genuine and thor
ough reformation iu every department of
the government; presented proof ol the
litness ot Gov. Tilden lor this important
duty, ami the utter impossibility f ac
complishing it under the weak ami vas
ciilsting Gov. Hayes.
Three hours were occupied In its de
livei y.and it w as listened to with rapt and
eager attention. The delivery was es
pecially line, its cflect oltimes dramatic.
All in all. it was the best speech the
public had during the campaign, and has
won for Mr. Ohcrly tho waruicst praise
of his old friends and the greatest admi
ration of hundreds ot new ones.

of Democrat soldiers and citizens ha.

tlie mystery seems to be where they all
come from. Symptoms of a tremendous

together with an endless stream of people
from the neighboring townships and
towns lying within a r.idiu of :M mile,
ciiuio thronging in Irum every uvenue
and choking the principal at ret t. They
had h it home ut daybreak and reached
the city about the same time. When
these delegations of rural Democrats
were ipiucd and jostled by immense
crowds arriving by the trains ami Hock

met by a general outpouring ot honm cit
