...New Yoke,- Sept." 4. Die following
was the President's speech at Cleveland
on Mondav nisrht : .
n Feixow-citizens : It is not for the
purpose of making a speech that I now
appear Deiore yon. -j. am aware
of the great curiosity which prevails to
see stransrers who have notoriety, and
distinction in all ."countries. ' I know a
large number of you desire to see Gen
era! Grant and to hear what he has to
say, (a voice " Three cheers for Gen
eral Grant ;") but you can't see him to
nigrht : he is extremely ill. I repeat I
am not before you now to make a speech,
but simply to make your acquaintance,
to say " how are you r ana to Dia you
srood-by. We are on our way to Chi
cago to participate in or witness the lay
ing of the corner-stone of a monument
to the memory of a distinguished fellow-citizen,
who is no more. It is not
necessary for me to mention tne name
of Stephen A. Douglas to the people of
Ohio. I am free to say that I am flat
tered by the demonstrations I have wit
nessed; and being flattered I don't
. . . 11 i .
mean to take it personalty, dui as au
evidence of what is pervading the pub
lic mind; and this demonstration is
nothing more nor less than an indication
of the latent sentiment of feeling: of the
great masses of the people with regard
to the proper settlement of this great
Question. I come before you as an
American citizen simply, and not as the
Chief Maeristrate clothed in the insignia
and paraphernalia of State, being an in
habitant of a State of this Union. I
know it has been said that I am an alien
laughter and that I did not reside in
one of the States, of the Union, and
therefore could not be the Chief Magis
trate, though the Constitution declares
that I must be a citizen to occupy that
oftice. Therefore all that was necessary
was to declare the office vacant, or, un
der a pretext, to prefer articles of im
peachment, and thus tne individual wno
now occupies the Chief Magistracy was
to be disposed of and driven from power.
But a short time since you had a ticket
before you for the Presidency. I was
placed upon that ticket with a distin
guished fellow-citizen who is now no
more. I know there are some who
complain. A voice, "Unfortunately."
Yes, unfortunate for some that God
ules on high and deals in right,
cheers ; yes, unfortunately the ways
of Providence are mysterious and in
comprehensible, controlling all those
who exclaim unfortunate. " Bully for
you !" I was going to say, my coun
trymen, a short time since 1 was elected
and placed upon the ticket. There was
a platform proclaimed and adopted by
those who placed me upon it. Not
withstanding the subsidized gang of
hirelings andtraducers I have discharg
ed all iiiy duties and fulfilled all my
pledges, and I say here to-night that if
my predecessor had lived the vials of
wrath would have been poured out up
on him. rCries of" never !" " Three
cheers for the Congres of the United
States !" I came here as I was pas
sing along, and have been called upon
for the purpose of exchanging views
and ascertaing if we could, who was
wrong. Cries of " It's you !" That
was my obect in appearing before you
to-night, and I want to say this, that I
have lived among the American people
and have represented them in some
public capacity for the last 25 years,
and where is the man or woman who
can place his finger upon one single act
of mine deviating from any pledge of
mine, or in violation of the Constitu
tion of the country ? Cheers. Who
is he ? " What language does he speak ?
What does he profess ? Who can come
and place his finger on one pledge I
ever violated, or one principle I ever
proved false to ? A voice, " How
about New Orleans ?" Another voice,
" Hang Jeff. Davis ! hang Jefl. Davis !
Why don't you hang him V" Cries of
'Give us the opportunity." Have
j vou not jot the Attorney-General ? A
voice, " vv no is your nici iusiice xnai
refuses to sit upon the trial ?" Cheers.
I am not the Chief. Justice. I am not
the prosecuting attorney. Cheers. I
am not the jury. I will tell you what
I did do. J called upon your Congress
that is trying to break up your Govern
ment. Cheers, mingled with hisses ;
great confusion, " Don't get mad, An
dy !" Well,I will tell you who is mad.
" Whom the Gods would destroy they
first make mad." Did your Congress
order any of them to be tried ? Three
cheers for Congress. Then, fellow
citizens, we might as well allay our pas
sions, and permit reason to resume her
sphere and prevail. Cheers. In pre
senting the few remarks that I design
ed to make, my intention was to ad
dress myself to your common sense,
your judgment, and your better feeling,
not to the passion in you hearts.
Cheers. This was my object in pre
senting myself on this occasion, and to
ask you "How do you do ?" and at the
same time to bid you " Good-bye." In
this assembly here to-night the remark
has been made " Traitor !" " Traitor !"
My countrymen, will you hear me,
shouts of " Yes 1" and will you hear
me for my cause and for the Constitu
tion of my country ? Applause. I
want to know when or where, or under
what circumstances, Andrew Johnson,
not as Chief Executive, but in any ca
pacity, ever deserted any principle or
violated the Constitution of his country.
Cries of "Never !" Let me ask this
large and intelligent audience if your
Secretary of State, who served four
years under Mr. Lincoln, and who was
placed upon the butcher's block, as it
were, and hacked to pieces and scarred
by the assassin's knife, ever turned
traitor? Cries of " Never !" If I
were disposed to play the orator and
deal in declamation to-night, I would
imitate one of the ancient tragedians,
and would take William II. Seward and
bring him before you and point you to
the hacks and scars upon his person.
A voice " God bless him 1" I would
exhihit the bloody garments, saturated
with gore from his gushing wounds.
Then I would ask you, why not hang
Thad. Stevens and Wendell Phillips ?
I lell you, my countrymen, I have been
fio-hting the South, and they have been
whipped and crushed, and the acknowl
edge their defeat and accept the terms
of the Constitution, and now, as I go
round the cirele, having fought traitors
at the South, I-am prepared to fight trai
tors at ihe North. Cheers. , God wil
ling, with your help, we will do it.
Cries of" We o!'' They will

I understand the discordant notes in

ed to the restoration of this Govern
ment and the reunion of the States is as
great a traitor as Jeff. Davis or Wen
dell Phillips. Loud cheers. I am
against both. fCries of " Give it to

ors in the South who have not courage
to get away from your homes to fight
them. Laughter and cheers. The
courageous men, Grant, Sherman, Far
ragut, and the long list of distinguished
sons of the Union were in the field and
led on their gallant hosts to conquest
and to victory, while you remained
cowardly at home. TApplause. " Bui-

have returned home, many of whom
have left an arm or a leg or their blood

ident. Cries " How was it about his

tles of this country, and I can tell you,
tuthermore, to-night who have to pay
these brave men who shed their blood
while you speculated, and now leave

work it out. Cheers. It is time that
the great mass of the people should un
derstand what your designs are. W hat

What did General Grant say? fCheers
and what does General Grant sav about
General Butler ? Laughter and cheers.

A voice " What does General' Sheri
dan say ?" General Sheridan says
that he is lor the restoration ot the bov
ernment that Sheridan fouirht for.
" Bully !" and renewed cries of " New
Orleans !" and confusion. The Presi
dent : I care not tor dignity. There is
a portion of your countrymen who will
always respect their fellow-citizens
when they are entitled to respect, and
there is a portion of them who have no
respect for themselves, and consequent-
y have no respect lor others. A
oice : " lraitor !" 1 wish 1 could see
that man. I would bet you now that
if the light fell on your face, cowardice
and treachery woulfl be seen in it.
Show yourself ; come out here, where I
can see you. tshouts ot laughter.! 1
tand now where I stood when the re
bellion commenced. Who has sacrific
ed more for his country than I ? Who
has run greater risks i J Jut the fac-
ious, domineering, and tyrannical par
ty in Congress has undertaken to poison
the minds of the people against me.
Cheers. J 1 lie 1 resident continued in
the strain of his previous arguments
pon the issues in the eoming contest,
welling particularly upon the nature
ot the Freedmen's Bureau bill.
At Detroit among other things the Presi
dent said :
Have I not, he said, been elected President
by you ? (A voice; " That $25,000 a year.'')
Oh, indeed ! 1 hat is what vou give vour
Tribune is it? Cheers. Let ine call your
attention to this. I am not afraid to talk to
the American people and all the little fel
lows they put into crowds to call out catch
words with a view of creating disrespect ; I
care not for them. The whole kennel has
been turned loose upon me long since
their little dogs Tray and Blanche and Sweet
Heart all have been let loose yelping at my
heels for the last eiyht months. Cheers.
The whole pack of slanderers and calumnia
tors had better get out of my way. Great
cheering. I tell them that the American
people are taking hold of the questions at is
sue, and when they begin toconsider them
these usurpers and tyrants because tyranny
can be exercised more effectually by two
hundred and forty-two men than by one sin
gle man cheers I tell them it will be
better for them to keep their small boats
near shore. (Continued cheering.) The
people are being waked up, and when the
honest, intelligent and patriotic masses come
to the rescue the whole set ofthem -will be
destroyed. But it was said here that I, the
Tribune of the people, was getting $25,000 a
year ; but I ask this question, has it been in
creased since I came into office ? Cheers and
cries of " No, no." But let me tell you what
Congress has done. They changed their pay
since they came into power. Yes I this Con
that has assailed and attacked me for faithful
discharge of my duty when the citadel of
freedom was attacked cheers yes, this
immaculate, this pure, this people loving,
this devoted Congress finds it convenient
while they had the chance, while they were
in power, to increase their pay nearly double.
Great cheeri ng and hisses. Those who live
in glass houses should never throw stones.
Cheers. Yes, this immaculate Congress in
creased their pay nearly double, while at the
same time they were magnanimous enough to
vote $50 for the brave two year veterans of
the war ; $50 bounty for the men who shed
their blood and lost their limbs iu the defence
of the country. For men mutilated and dis
abled from workforeverthisimmaculate Con
gress votes $50, while they double their own
emoluments cries of shame receiving $4,
000 a year. Just pocket that as you go along.
Cheers and laughter. They reckoned with
some sagacity in the premises ; they feared
that there would be this uprising of the peo
ple, and that it would be the very last grab
1 trust in you, and trusting in you, I say let
the whole Congress come. Relying on you
I will meet them single handed and alone.
In the words of the poet I exclaim :
" Come one, come all, this rock shall fly
From its firm base as soon as I." (Cheers.)

TRAGEDY IS CHICAGO.
George TrusseU, Joint Owner of the Trot
ting Horse Dexter, Shot Dead by his Mis
tress Jealousy the supposed Cause - An
guish of the Murderess Excitement in the
City, &c. Chicago, September 5.
The expected arrival of the President here
to night has hardly created so much excite
ment as a murder, which was committed in
this city last evening. The victim was
George Trussell, a young man 32 years of age,
a sporting man by profession, and, with Mr.
A. F. Fawcet, owner of the well known trot
ting horse, Dexter.
'1 russell was born m Danville, Vt. where
he lived until 1849. He then came to Keno
sha, where he was employed in a grocery
store. In 1860, he came to Chicago and was
employed by a prominent business firm (Rich
mond & Co.) He possessed unusual business
qualifications, and gained a high character
for integrity and wide acquaintance in the
city. He shortly after commenced gambling,
and soon became proprietor of one of the
largest faro banks in the city, and in his pro
fession has amassed a fortune of over one
hundred thousand dollars.
Early in his career he met a vouns and
beautiful chambermaid at the American
House, Cleveland, with whom he cohabited
until about two years ago, when a difficulty
occurred, which ended in an open rupture,
between them. A street altercation ensued.
in which the girl was roughly handled by
x russeii. js. separaion took place, ot course ;
but on several occasions since a short recon
ciliation had been effected with no lasting
results, however. Trussell was the owner of
the greater portion of Dexter, and, accompa
nied by the girl, Mollie Trussell, he attended
the races in the East, where his valuable ani
mal has been exhibiting his prowess. While
at Buffalo his paramour became jealous of
him, and another quarrel was the conse
quence, which has been growinjj wider and
more malignant, until last evening, rage,
jealousy, and strong drink combined caused
the woman to do an act which to-day she
would give her own eqistence to recall. The
mistress, who has been keeping an aristocrat
ic and most luxuriously-furnished house of
ill-fame in this city, while in a fit of partial
intoxication, arrayed herself in her most gor
geous finery, armed herself with a revolver,
and set out last evening in search of Trussell.
She searched for him in all the various pla
ces he was in the habit of frequenting, and
finally, at eleven o'clock, found him ina sa
loon attached to .Price's liver- stable, on
Randolph street. Trussell was standing with
some ot his friends in the saloon, when she
entered by a side door opening into the sta
ble. Approaching him she took him by the
coat collar, saying, " George, I want to see
you." He stepped towards her, as if to ac
company her, and finally pushed her out of
the door. He followed her out, and, it is said,
struck her two or three times, whereupon
she instantly fired. The shot evidently took
effect, for Trussell immediately pressed his
hand to his side and retreated to the centre
of the saloon. Mollie pursued him and fired
a second shot, placing the muzzle of the pis
tol close to his back. He cried out ''I am
shot," and staggered to the side entrance
leading from the saloon to the main entrance
of Price's h very stable. The woman still fol
lowed him and tired again, hitting him some
where in the side. He stajjarered half way
across the stable entrance and fell dead on
the spot. Either of the shots striking him
would have alone produced death. The
whole affair was so sudden and fearful that
of all the bystanders no one had the quickness
of thought or limb sufficient to stop the in
furiated woman from committing the bloody
work. Mollie rushed out, and, with a fran
tic screams, threw herself upon thejprostrate
form, crying out Oh my George ! My George!
He is dead 1" While she was indulging in
bitter lamentations of a maudlin character,
officers came to the spot and took her to the
Central police station. At the station-house
the ravings of the murderess were piteous to
listen to. It was impossible to obtain any
ot the motives which induced her to perpe
trate the crime. This was partly, perhaps,
the result of her intoxicated condition, and
the horror awakened in her mind by the
knowledge of her guilt. " Oh, my God !"
she exclaimed, " he is dead ; he is dead I I
know it, for I saw him laid out ! My dear
George ! he is dead ! Oh, how I wish I was
dead with him. I know I cannot live now,
and I don't want to ; but I cannot go to heav
en. I know I have been wild, and now I
will never have any more peace." In this
way she continued her wild lamentations, re
fusing to listen to anything that was said to
her. Suddenly, speaking of her child, she
broke out with the passionate exclamation,
I have a son, a little boy, at school, on,
my God do not let him know what his moth
er was. He will never, never on earth know
that. Tell Captain Nelson," she said, turn
ing to Captain Douglas who sat beside her,
'to sell my property at auction after I am
dead, and give the money to my boy."
Among other things, she gave vent to expres
sion of regret that the bystanders did not in
terfere. "I was mad," she said, "and they
ought to have known it. They should have
knocked me down. Oh, my George, if I
could only have died with you !" With such
expressions she continued to rave and sob du
ring the whole night.
The affair has created the most profound
excitement all over the city, as Trussell was
almost universally known here, and, apart
from his gambling propensities, was looked
upon as an honorable man. The murderess
is one of the most beautiful women in the
city. Tall, well formed, black hair ana eyes,
and especially known as the Dest-aressea wo
man in Chicago. It was undoubtedly jeal
ousy on ner part that jea to tne ternoie
Hundreds of people have visited the scene
of the tragedy to-day, and at the race-course
this afternoon, where he used to be the prin
cipal figure, scarcely anything else was the
topic of discussion.
Another Letter from Henry Ward
New York, Sept. 10th. Rev. Henry Ward
Beecher has written another letter upon the
Cleveland Convention, and announcing
himself as opposed to the details of the Pres
ident's policy of reconstruction. He does
not modify his Cleveland epistle or disown
it, but on the con crary, he justifies and de
fends it. In regard to the New Orleans riot,
he says Johnson's haste to take the wrong
side of the atrocious massacre of New Or
leans, was a shocking perversion and mutil
ation of Sheridan's dispatch, and needs no
characterization. I do not attribute this
act to him, yet it was of such a criminal and
disgraceful nature that, not to clear himself"
of it by exposure and rebuke of the offend
ing party, amounted to collusion with the
crime. After these facts, what shall I say
of the speeches made in the wide recent cir
cuit of the Executive ? Are these the M ays of
reconciliation? - .

Proscription for Opinion's Sake.
The Provisional Governor of this State
was charged by the President with the duty
of re-organizing the State, including the
State corporations ; and he was instructed
by the President in doing this, to prefer those
men ior omce wno naa " never faltered in
their allegiance to the government."
He performed this duty to the best of his
knowledge and ability. After the work had
been done, the President looked at it and
approved it. He said it was good. The
Provisional Governor retired, and Governor
Worth, whose duty it was to continue the
work of restoration until it was completed,
What did Governor Worth do? Did he
show his friendship for the President by con
tinuing in office the persons thus appointed ?
Far from it. He said we had had enough of
provisional governments he rejected the
work of the President, and set about undo
ing the whole of it. He ejected Mr. Moore
from his post of President of the Bank of
North-Carolina, and put Mr. Mordecai in his
place. He pushed Mr. Thomas from the
Presidency of the Atlantic Road, and put
Mr. Whitford in his place. He did the same
with Mr. Lassiter, and put Dr. Hawkins in
his place. And his last act has been to eject
Tod R. Caldwell, Esq., from the office of
President of the Western Railroad, and put
Col. Tate in his place.
These officers, thus proscribed for opinion's
sake, had discharged their duties as the
heads of these corporations with extraordin
ary energy and fidelity. Will Gov. Worth
tell the people wby he removed them ?
In making these removals and appoint
ments, such has been his zeal for proscribing
Union men and rewarding his partizans, that
Gov. Worth has installed in office at least
two persons who have not been pardoned by
the President, and who are, therefore, not
citizens of the United States. President
Johnson says Z. B. Vance and Josiah Tur
ner, Jr., ought not yet to be allowed to vote
or hold office"; Gov. Worth denies this, and
flies in the face of the President by appoint
ing, or, as in the case of Gov. Vance, per
mitting others to appoint just such persons,
to direct our great State works, and to han
dle hundreds of thousands of the people's
The Governor's organ, the Sentinel, char
ges plain, unambitious farmers of Guilford
and Randolph with being governed solely
by the lust for office, because they think
proper to assemble together to consider the
state of the country. This charge lies justly
not at their door, but at the door of Gov.
The same paper, when asked why Gov.
Worth has thus proscribed and persecuted
Union men, answers that it is because of
"the meanness, chicanery, and total ineffi
ciency perpetrated by the so-called Union
men !" That is the answer. Well now,
what " meanness " has been perpetrated by
F. Moore, or C. R. Thomas, or R. W.
Lassiter, or Tod R. Caldwell? Will the
Sentinel tell us? That paper would add
insult to injury. It says to Gov. Worth,
" kick them out," and then tells those who
have been served thus that it was done on
account of their " meanness."
We call upon the Sentinel to tell the pub
lic why the President's work has thus been
undone ? why these gentlemen have been
proscribed from office? why unpardoned
persons have been appointed to office ?
what right Gov. Worth has to regard the
offices at his disposal as so many bribes or
gifts to be bestowed on his partizans ? and
what Gov. Worth has done, since he has
been in office, except to renovate and carpet
the State House, and proscribe Union men
from office ? Let us have the answers.
What has Gov. Worth Done!
The Sentinel has made no satisfactory re
ply to our recent question, What has. Gov.
Worth done, since he has been in office, to
restore the State to the Union ?
Gov. Worth was elected with this, express
view. This was the declaration ckslsii nanus
by his friends. He has been in office eight
months, and we seem to be further from re
storation now than we were then.
The Sentinel seems to be B&uch pleased
with the improvements made by Gov.. Worth
in the Capitol and Capitol grounds.. Car
pets have been put down ini nearly all the
rooms, and the grounds are in good order.
We learn that the Governor has provided
new furniture and a fine carpet for his own
office. His attention seem to be occupied
with these little things. Is this duty, on the
part of the Chief Magistrate of the State?
Is this restoring the State- to- the Union, f
For shame! The Capitol has been renova
ted, and the grounds are-kept in a handsome
condition ! And is that all ?
The writer of this when he was Pro
visional Governor, though he had thousands
of dollars at his command, which he had the
power to disburse as-he might choose, never
drank even a glass, of ice-water at the ex
pense of the State Ho was content with
the old carpets and! the old chairs. He was.
so engrossed with his efforts to restore the
State to the Union that he had no time to.
think of new carpeta and new furniture. He
never found timx even to visit the Senate
and Commons Halls until the Keeper of the-
Capitol was about to prepare them for the
use of the Convention and Legislature,
Gov. Worth has. renovated the. Capitol,.
and has put the grounds in order He has-
also no doubt given due attention to tho or
dinary rovt'me of office business, such as le
ceiving visitors, writing letters, having his.
correspondence, recorded, . &c.; - Bat we pe

There are thousands of our citizens who

How did Tennessee get back ? Why bv
adopting the proposed constitutional amend

Congress passed an act to admit her and
President Johnson approved the act ' The
objection raised to this amendment by Gov
Worth and his friends, is, that it provides
that all persons who had taken an oath to
support the federal Constitution and after
wards engaged in the rebellion, shall not hold
office hereafter, unless two-thirds of the Con

localities not more than a fourth of a cron

J. E. Ikby, Clerk.
Mr. Stephens Compliments Judge Baffin.
In a speech delivered by Hon. Thaddeus
Stevens, at Bedford, Pa., on the 4th instant,
he says :
" No sound constitutional lawyer believes
any one of the organizations now existing in
those States to be legitimate governments.
Formed by the decrees of a military con
queror, without consulting the people, they
can be tolerated only as temporary arrange
ment, until the law making power provides
them permanent laws and forms of govern
ment. They are so considered by the rebels
themselves. Chief Justice Ruffin, of North
Carolina, one of the ablest and fairest of seces
sionists, has lately given the following opin
ion. Mr. Stevens here quotes Judge Ruffin's
opinion.! The Chief Justice is right. Not
a rebel State has this day a lawful govern
ment. They are mere Territories conquered

Extremes have met. Mr. Stevens holds
that every thing that has been done in the
way of restoration is null and void, and
Jndge Ruffin entertains the same opinion.
Yet Mr. Stevens is abused and Judge Ruffir
is praised by the secessionists and their
The Cpltube op Tobacco ei Prakce.
A Paris correspondent says, i '- -
In regard to the culture of tofeacco,now an
important item of French agricultural in
dustry, the law is even more stringent. To
bacco being a government monopoly, no one
can grow even a single plant of tobacco ia
his garden witliout a permit. If a peasant
wishes to plant a held with tobacco, he
makes declaration- to . that efiect to the
proper authorities. An inspector then visits
the held to be plantedy measures it earetuiiy?
and enters the measurement in his book.
Whea the tobacco comes up-, every plant is-
counted, and an entry of the number made ia
the same book.
Every week the inspector visits 1 he field,
counting every stem, and when the plants are
approaching maturity, every leaf i counted,.
and aa entry of the number of leaves of each
plant is made in his book. ; If a leaf is at
tacked, by an insect or withers, the farmec
lnust not remove it ; but, on the next weekly
visit of the inspector, the dead leaf is taken
away by him' an entry to that effect is made
in, the book,, and the entry Sot particular,
plant,, is. corrected as to the number of leaves.
Vhea the crop is fit forgathering, the inspec
tor makes-his-final examination. If tho qual
ity id-fouad; to be defective, he- causes- the
whole to. be gathered and burned ;:the un
happy owner- in such case not receiving a
single-centime,, but losing the whale ofhis
year's, wotft -
If the quality satisfactory, the inspector
superintends the cutting, countathe leaves,
before having them carried1 away, and'pays
the regufatEms price for them. This price is
very large, so that the tobacco grower risks
the chanej of a heavy losa against the chance
f a raie of proQt very much higher than l a
could make ly any other- branch of . agri
culture. "Bn as the tobacco . is a very deli
cate plant,, ajidsttbject, in this climate, to
various diseases and other mishaps, its cnl
tivation. so. often prove a. failure that, tho
French peasant,, sharp as he is after giin. is
growing every year more and more shy of it
so that the amount of tobacco grown iiere is
steadily declining, r and its culture will prob
ably cease altogether. .
