Gentlemen: If things were now s's they

' this'Is ' not so,' I thank my friend woo has'

thirty years agol made my first appearance

in' that capacity for some ten corsechtivo
years under-tho immediate observation .and

' that period I occupied a tlifferent pvsitiou
foraiew years and then returned to the
Sen'ato of the United States. After .serving
In the Senate for a short time, some three
years, it was deemed expedient and proper
by the'Government to assign ma another
- position, which I accepted : arid gave up my
position in tho Senate of the United States,
where there was no danger, but where
there was emolument, accepting a plce
where there was danger and bnt little emol
ument. After that expired I theu returned
to the city of Washington and occupied the
SBltion as President of tho. United States,

" WHKKE AJE WE SOW ?
Ifl werSto say anything, my country
men, It would bs by way of inquiry, and
that Inquiry would, be to ask. first, what
lnd af a Government have we now? r Ao-
plause- We used-tp have some idea that,
there was it Constitution, and. that, we iiad
a constitutional Government. As I stated
awhile agb, when I first made toy entrance
here' In the'Congress'of the United States,
it then used to be inquired first as to what
was constitutionally conferred upon the
Government. We then had some idea I hat
there was a limitation of "power the Con
stitution of the country, which had been
framed' by lha people through their .States,
presttioedHImlt3andt boundaries to tho
Congress of the United States.
We started in the formation of our Con
stitution and practiced it for ajgreat many
years thereafter; that it was a Government
of boundaries, both State: and Federal.
This was one of the grett ideas, and-' let me
say to you here to-night, if we had time
and were so'circrunstanced, and I had the
strength as I have the will, to dlscuesj the
elementary principles of this Government as
they were originally adopted and practiced,
and at the same time discuss how far we
have departed from them, I should like 'to
do so. Applause.
Th's Government was a conception. The
Constitution as adopted by Wa:hln:ton,the
Father of his Country, 'who was first in
peace, first in war, and stcrillced his for
tunes and his services and then would re
ceive no pay for it, was a-grand conception;.
Applause. Washington, Jefferson and
those great men that formed tho Constitu
tion of tho country started off upon that
ereat idea, which is divine Itself. What is
the idea,;snd what were the principles?
They.starled off that there w&a .boundary,
that there was.a Jjinltation of power, and
even whea we go into tho works of nature
when WB'pass into the physical -worlds we
hear that order Is heayenls first law. We
find the Deity Himself has fixed a limit and
boundary for all things, and this Govern
ment was formed ku&ccordtnce and in
compliance jvithihls greafcidea of Him that
conu'ructed all. things v 1 might take one
or two esses to illustrate. Let us go, for
instance, into the physical world; let us
go Into ; J
if It were necessary; let us look.at the sun,
who' rules the day,'tha rises In 'fhe morn
ing and sets in the evening, and. he will at
limitation. Let us look at the path in which
the XjeitvJiaa, jrecritifldheuflnll Tmnve.
Let us go into the tropic of Capricorn add
tropic or Cancer, embracing forty-seven de
grees of latitude, and we shall see the ruler
of the day goes so far Sauth and so far
.North. The hoJlnds a boundary and a
limitation, applause, and while he is pass-
leg from one extreme to tho other Jie cross.
es various latitudes, bat n.ver slops upon
any, ii3 niarcn is. continued. And Hear,
my countrymen, notwithstanding the pa
triots of tho Revolution, who sat in the con
vention, many of them, and framed the
Constitution of the United States, and that
great conception: which they conceived.
which resulted Iu the formation of the Con
stitution which many of us believe to' be
the greatest emanation of divine wisdom in
a political sense that ba3 ever been conceiv
ed, is overthrown. j
Why do I say sol We find that the C6n
stltution prescribes a limit, prescribes a
boundary, prescribes to your Government
so many divisions, and each one of those
divisions has its boundaries prescribed. We
find that in the formation of that Constitu
tion they, made three deptrtments, and for
those three departments of the Government
like the sun moving In Its path th'y pre
scribed when Congress should move, when
the Executive should move, when the jud'-.1
ciary should move, and w&s intended to
move harmoniously in their respective
spheres. But as this Government has. pro
gressed, wnere ao you una it? i remember
that when I was in Congress wo used to
have what was called a Whig and a Demo
cratic party, and I wonld to God to day that
the country was under the control of
TWO. GIIEA.T rAKTIES
liko the old Whig and Democratic parties
weie. Applause. And I fer that this
people wili never again have two great
parties as pure in principle and action as
those two old parties, were. What was the
difference between these two great parties
in that day? You will all remember, even
without my referring to it, what was the
difference between these two great old par
tics. When a question, came up in Con
gress, why the first consideration was, is
that constitutional or unconstitutional?
The Democracy of those days contended
tor a Btrict construction of the Constitution,
while tho Whigs were for the Constitution,
hut contended for a little more latitude; but
H ere was one great point conceded "he
ween Ihose two great old parties, and
thongh ono contended for a greater" margin,
or a little more latitude than the other, yet
the two great parties agreed In this essen
tial, that there wes a Constitution,
and that there was a limit ti power.
But that brings us to this question. The
query comes up, what kind of gGvemmont
have yen? If you have got any Constitu
tion I am speaking now in general terms,
not referring to an? person in particular,
but arsuing upon principles; and let me say
right here that the tlmo has come when it
hf necessary to go hack and review and de
velop, if wo can, the principles upon which
the Constitution Was formed. It is as nec
essary now as It was then, for the recent
Uoubles through which we have' passed, the
war that has recently transpired, and tha
consequences growing out of it, have prac
tically effaced and wiped out those limita
tions prescribed Tjy the Constitution, and
our people pardon me forsajing so, and
there is nothing egotistic in it want to bq
informed upon the great principles upon
which this Government was" .established,
and it Is necessary now to discuss these
principles as they were at the foundation of
the Constitution itself.
Bct was going on to say that
IF THE CONSTITOTION WAS WIPED OUT
and Congress is without limitation where
are you? If there is no boundary, If tlnro
is no limit to the. action of. Congress, where
is the people? Let me ssy to you here to-
night, rather than have a governme: t con
trolled by a party of men with infinite
power no limitation, no Constitution to
restraint upon them but their will and their
interest - and you will have the most odious,
despotism that ever was permited to be es
tablished. rApplause. And rather than li
take a body of ,men call them members of
Congress, or members or i-aritamonr, or
courts, cr whslover other Jiame yoa my
think proper to call them with unlimited
pawer to control .the people, give me a wise
and just prince In preference to this; Ap
plause and hisses-
But if the Constitution!' wiped cut, and
all power is wiped out, and the other two.
are made subordinate to It, or co operative,
as a matter of consent or willi the whole.-
thing had better bo wiped out at once, and
if we are to have a master if we are ta

" Look" at the vast appropriations. Look
atit&e' Immense expenditure of money.
Look at tha high-haHded robberies that
have been committed upon the people. I
am talking about the.' operations of the
gaye"rnment. "Gojack and compare it with
it when it was first inaugurated -in ,1789;
when your expenditures were $3,000,000,
now np to $400,000,000. Look at the vast
expenditures that have' been imposed upon
the people, and who is to plead their cause?
When, you come to look at the expenditures,
'not to say public plunderers when you
come to look at them you will see
THE STATE YOU ABE IN.
Take the histoiy of your Government for
the last eight or ten years. Jfou may begin1
witn your utue corporation, in a village or
fifteen hundred population, and the little
corporation there, its "whole business is to
collect taxes to favor a few. You may then"
go to your county, and the county is taxed
to subserve' the Interest of a particular class.
Then you may come along from the county
and go np to the State; and your Legisla-
tares, where have they gone? They have
become your Blnks of pollution nothing
but corruption Issuing bonds to involve
the States in debts that they can never pay.
Then come along to the Federal Govern
ment and see how it stands. Take the
debt, from-tbe smallest municipality up to
the Federal Government all through the
States, and the American people, I pro-;
claim it here to-night, are involved In more
debt, per capita, than any people on the
habitable globe. Yet yoa talk about free
dom and liberty, and there is more resting
upon each citizen, per capita, than In any
other Government. Why talk about Euro
pean monarchies, the taxes and grandeur
thereof, when you have got more of it nero
than anywhere else.
I would to God that we could have a
gocd 'amphitheatre constructed, capacious
enough to contain all the people, assembled
like yon here to-night, and they could bo
gathered together, and this Government
and all tho little inferior governments could
be presented, and you could have a kind of
panorama, that you could all sit or stand
and see, and let the curtain be lifted that
the whole American people ciuld look in
upon and understand what was going on
here as well as in many of their Slate gov
ernments. You talk about an uprising of
the people, an upheaval, but there would
be such an earthquake as thnre never was
But, then, they say that this is all talk.
"Why we can carry the election;" but how
are they carried? how are they carried? The
system that is being practiced in the "United
States, and has been going on for some
years, is to levy heavy taxes upon the peo
ple and get the proceeds into the hands of a
few. Then when the election comes the
ballot boxes are corrupted. The ballot
boxes are degraded and lowered, and the
nation is bought up and controlled by its
own money in the hancs of those who are
not its friends. I am speaking generally; I
am alluding to no particular Individual
further than be cornea within the scope of
what I am saying. If I know myselfand
I have nothing to ask here to-night; I am an
humble cit.zen, asking nothing, fetring noth
ingI feel that I can afford to speak of the
abuses and violation of principles and of the
Constitution, of the country in language
that It deserves to be spoken of. Ap
plause. And let me tell you here to-night
though you are a small portion of the
people of the United States, yet you are a
portion of them. The same mind that op
erates here operates elsewhere; the same
mind that controls here should control else
where. Let us come up and act upon prin
ciple. I know that they talk about new de
parture and new parties, and all that. Let
me say to you here to-night, notwithstand
ing, as it were, that I have acted with a par
ty, yet I never was controlled by behests of
that party, farther than it conformed to
principle. Applause. And, though I have
teen commonly called a Democrat, yet
when Democracy parted from what I con
ceived to be principle and tbe Constitution
of tho country I was round standing upon
the Constitution of my country. Applause
And tbe time has come for the people prop
erto take things within their own hands.
Your Institutions are all gone. Your Con
stitution is wiped out. There is a great
deal said about
and all that kind of thing. It is not so much
iu man, not so much in Democracy, or Re
publicanism, or Radicalism, as in what is
I propose to act, tnd have acted, upon
principle, as many of you know and have
witnessed. I have never been a partisan in
politics, nor have I been a fanatic in reli
gion. Liughterand applause. My reli
gion has been coextensive with my race,
and my politics corresponded with the.
boundaries of tbe nation. I felt that every
man acted on principle, upon the principles
laid down in the constitution, let mm be
far or near; and I might 3peak In other lan
guage, but to the same, idea, that he world
is my home and every honest man my
And tbe time has come, in the languago
of Mr. Burke, one of England's most distin
guished statesmen, that when bad men
combine for corrupt purposes the time has
come, when good men should associate to
resist the encroachments upon the liberties
of the country) and hence I say here to
night, withoutregard to name whether it
is Democrat or whatever name you call it
Republican, Whig or Radical let the good
men, let the honest men, let tbe pure men
of the country associate and combine, or
ganize and resist the encroachments upon
constitutional liberty and the Institutions
of tbe country. I know there is some talk
about granges and all that. 1 don't care
what they call themselves, if they bring to
getuer.a sufficient number of good men to
take the government Into their hands and
administer it for the best interest of the peo
ple, I say amen and so be it. I do not propose,
so far as I am concerned, to act with any
particular sect in politics or religion. I In
tend to act Upon principle, and when we
come to examine for a few moments, we
find that the policy has b?en a few years
back upon incidents, leaving out of
view tho government, s Let men combine
and associate for the purpose of preserving
the constitution of the country and admin
istering it upon principle npjn principle!
It is truo that there are officers and those
officers must have salaries, but Jet them
coma along as incidents and your great ob
ject should be measures, principle and the
constitution, and in the pursuit of them
and in maintaining them let your little
offices and salaries como along as mora in
cidents. But, how Is it now? Theinci-dent-which
is throflice, tho Incident which
is tho salary, the Incident which is corrup
tionthe incidents are pursued and the in
terests of the government are abandoned.
SHOUTS, "WHEHE WE'BE OOINO?"
We find thb system taking from the peo
ple their substance.
We have got a currency question, but I
can say bnt little about It, for I have spoken
longer than I expected to, having more
strong. h than I thought.
When we come to talk about these great
measures, and I think of my connection
with them and that of the neonlft -whp.n T
get under way, if f have got the strength, I
speak from my feelings, and to night, here,
what little I have to say, believe me, In
talking to you upon these great questions
warm is the heart that feels and willing is
i.the tongue that speaks. Applause. In
.speaking upon these questions It Is not
merely mechanical, for it is seldom that I
reduce: to set phrases and repeat periods
handsomely rounded for the purpose of
.hearing them sound. The mos talking I
nave done has been for the purpose f ad
dressing myself to the mind, sense and the
hrain, of those I address, and not to tho
physical man. I know there has been n
straggle, going on, and I see some little
evidences oT It here to-night, between mind
and then nutter. T always prefer address-
lRratone7eK ifo. wk jfoaeense." ifi am

when we come to talk about currency and
tariffs and banks and internal improvements,
and all that, it requires the mind to ba ex

is idea in it, and without understanding, if
all amount to ething k is mere soBsii.

the idea is that pjper that is hank notes
althatis necessary, is .for, the Government
to saatae.aa impress iupon3t ..and they are
equal fcrwhat' is'-consldered the money of
the world. But what I was going, .to say,
in this connection, was in commerce the
world, Pagan, and.Christian,.has been com
polledlo bunt jup and adopt some standard
by- wJiichqommerclal, values could-, be.
measured, and whether they are right or
wrong, even civilized as well as uncivilized,
they all agree that-gold and silver Is ths
standard by which the trade of the country
I ca.'-e. not whether you take silver and
gold in ingots or setdt up Into pieces, and
when you put the alloy Into It whon they
know-.how,much it weighs I caro not how,
far you go, there It. s, and It will bring you
what its intrinsic value calls for. The
world Is made like a great store-house' or
mercantile establishment, and has been
compelled to adopt, a standard t by .which
values are to bB "measured. .Supposing a,
merchant should cbmq tatar.tb.p city ofl
Washington, and propose to do business.
He might have a. fine lot of dry goods; ho
might have a fine lot, for instancefof groce
ries. Suppose be would commence doing
business without a yard-stick and without
scales' and weights lie would commence
getting dowu. things and running Ms dipper
into the barrel of,sugar or coffee with noth
ing to weigh or measure It by how long
would he be a merchant? Don't you think
he would soon quit business? The first you
know he'would-waht to g6 into bankruptcy.
Applause and Laughter.
Then suppose a nation commences deal
ing In currency, making money of copper,
and of piper, aud of everything else that,
yon can call up, and have got no standard"
to measure it by. Go to tho merchant on
the other side of the street. He keeps his
yard-stick npon his counter, and when you
want anything there .la the yard-stick and
the scales to weigh It, and gold and silver
are the weights and measure by which they
measure everything, .of commercial value.
And you might s wellsay.it would be
prudent or good sense in the merchant. to,
throw his yard-stick Into the street as tint
a nation should throw out this great stand
ard of gold and silver and set.lt aside. The
one is about as sensible as the other.
Well, travel along, and where do we find
ourselves? We havo had various contrac
tion and expansion in the United States; -
befobe the bebecxion
commenced we had banks State banks
and these banks were generally founded
upon gold and silver. Then they got to
f mnding banks npon bonds of the States,
and they founded the free banking system,
but these free banking systems all exploded.
Even In the days of the free banking sys
tem, which wo condemned and repudiated
and tho main objection against them .was
that they did-not furnish a uniform curren-
cy some of 'the banks would be "two per
cent., some three, four- or five, -and when
they got'down io ten psr cent, they wew
.broke. .How now. my countrymen? You
have heard a great deal about tho currency
you have got. How has it been since the
war? It is nearer par now than it was ever
before. How long has it been standing at'
sixteen and twenty per cent? It is true, it
In the old time, when a bank ran down
to twenty per cent, it was ruinous, but now
yon can have your national banking system
connected with greenbacks; and how does
it stand? It Is uniform, it is true. It has
been as high as two hundred and eighty
per cent below par; that is to say, it is uni
form In depreciation. It is uniform In be
ing below what gold and silver Is worth
the standard by which the world measures
currency. Your attention 1 lam not ad
dressing matter, but mind; I see faces and
heads here. And no?, how does the mat
ter stand? You talk, for Instance, about
BESUMINO SPECIE PATJTENT.
Why, you're laughed at. Some little fellow
will pop up who knowo more about
banking than bis master does; that is, he
being the judge.
He knows all about it knows what the
great pursuits and industry of the country
'requires and there i3 not gold and silver
enough In tne. world to answer tbe purpose.
Don't you remember here in Washington
City, when we had purses and not pocket
books. No man pulled out his purse unless
he had gold , and silver in it. Why? Be
cause It was the currency of the country.
I can now show you young men of twenty
one years of Jago who never saw a coin,
gold cr silver, with the stamp of the United
States thereon. Where Is the gold and sil
ver? A voice, "Cooke has got it,"
'Where' has it gone to? It has not been,
eat up; it has not been worn out; nobody'
has drank it. Where, then, 'is it? In its
place you find this national banking cur
rency 16 and 20 per cent it has been
clear down to 280 below par. Where is the
gold and silver? Don't every man know
that water will obey the law of gravity and
seek its lowest level? As you push out the
inferior currency a better currency disap
pears, and that when that is disappearing
the other is naturally coming in. Hence
you can see iheidea of receding. It disap
pears. Where has it gone? It is in the vaults,
In the secret places, and shipped beyond the
seas hoarded up and kept; and then, and
when we think proper, we will make
money scarce, and depreciate currency; and
the few gold aud silver holders of the coun
try have all tho property at their control.
But they will tell you there Is rjpt enough
gold and silver. Your attention: Go to
your own tables, published by tho Treasury
Department, made out by the Mint and
you will find that from 1849 up to 1802-3
wo raised from our gold fields over $1,000,
000,000 one billion dollars. Prior to the
war the greatest expansion we over had was
when the banking currency reached $210,
000,000; that was the greatest; every
thing expanded and went up.
They are employing more Irishmen on
tbeUew York press, if we may judge from
the way reports are padd (i)ed.
How could the proverb, "All work and no
play makes Jack a dull boy," be applied to
"A Soso in Time," Etc
If "a stitch in time sayes nine," It la equally
certain that a doso.of aheiuthy .tonic like Hoa
tetter's Stomach Bittera, taken at this Inclement
season of the year, may save many an unpleasant
twinge. A dose, however, is not sufficient. The
system should be thoroughly charged with this
genial vegetable stimulant and invFgorant Com
mence taking it with .the commencement- of the
atmospheric changes which dUtingulsn the win

Ihose disturbances oi the digestive and secretlvo
organs, and those painful diseases of the muscles
and the nerves of sensation, which often render
the period of the year which should be the mer
