A CUTTING REVIEW.
A SYNOPSIS OF
A SYNOPSIS OF Gen. Morgan's Speech at Mansfield,
June 22, 1871.
THE FATAL MISTAKE.
friciHl, would the South
have inaugurated secession .and
war had Southern statesmen
been satisfied that they could
not obtain tlio aid of the South
ern officers, who were in the
service of the United States to
organize and command their
armies V It is not probable.
Unhappily, no sooner did Mr.
Lincoln become President than
civil war M as regarded as inev
itable, and Southern officers at
once commenced to resign their
commissions. The inaugura
tion of the new President took
place on the 4th of March, and
the resignation of Colonel Sam
uel Cooper, Adjutant General
of the United States Army
was accepted three days alter
ward five weeks before Fort
Sumpter was fired upon. The
acceptance of tliese resignations
was taken as n notice that
Southern officers could resign
and "go South whenever they
desired to do so. This fact
emboldened such of the South
ern leaders as desired a conflict,
and the destruction and surren
der of Sumnter was the result.
What would you have done,
my republican mends, if, after
the surrender ' of Sumpter,
Southern oflicers had tendered
their resignations for the
avowed purpose of taking 111
arms against the United States
would you have, accepted
them? I think not. AVould
you not hnve arrested them as
prisoners of war? Had that
course been pursued, confeder
ate armies could not have or
ganized, and even had they
been, without generals to lead
them, the conllict would have
been shnrn and decisive; The
opposite course was taken.
Between the enpture ot Sump
ter and the 2d of June follow
in the resignations of more
than one hundred and eighty
oflicers had been accepted, and
the Republican administration
fnrnih( d JeflVrson Davis with
great captains-like Kobert E.
Lee, Albeit Sidney Johnson,
Joseph E. Johnson, Jam en M.
LoDgstreet, and scores of oth
ers of scarce less skill and dis
tinction. Prior to leaving our
service, they held the highest
rank in our army, and each of
those elicits was experienced
in war. This fatal blunder
cost half a million of lives, and
thousands of millions of dol
lars, and such, my countrymen,
will be the judgment of histo
ry. Uncontradicted I have
twice charged this fact on the
floor of the House, and as I
held in my hand there, so do I
hold in my hand now, the of
ficial evidence of what I
charge the Register of the
Army of the United States for
1861. And once for all I de
sire to say, that I will, in a
spirit of kindness, answer all
questions which may be Asked
mo concerning the subjects I
discuss.. I do not charge the
Administration with treachery
in accepting those resignations
but I do say that,at the least, it
was not only unwise to do so,
but a stupendous blunder. .
THE WAR DEBT NOT NECESSARY.
Hut to the proof. In Europe
as in tho United States, a cer
tain clnftf of men have long
professed to believe that n na
tional debt was n public bles
sing; that debt and capital are
the same. Such was the doc-
trim?' of those who created the
funded debt of England. Such
was' the doctrine of Jay Cooke
when acting as agent of, the
Federal Government for the
sale of its fronds. There are
but two rtfef hods, by which the
expenditures: of a government
can bo maintained. ,' Taxation,
without debt: or borrowing
first, with heavy debt nnd op
pressive taxes nttenynrds.
The . latter, plan was 'adopted.
Was it necessary t After
the facts you shall answer for
yourselves. I hold in my hand
the last report of the Register
of the United States Treasury.
On pnge 27G it appears that on
July 1, 1801, four months af
ter Mr. Lincoln became. Presi
dent, the entire outstanding
debt of the United States
n an iiDiiiiuieo III Hit) Treasury or
(pp a',..) :,,
Lcnvlmt. tilt; actual (loot 58.90:t,I71
The debt could have' been
paid during any fiscal year
without being felt. The ques
tion was how should revenue
be raised to carry on the war .?
By tixntion during the war,
and low taxas and no debt after
the war was over ? Or by
borrowing, and low taxes du
ring the first year of the war;
and heavy taxes to lie made
perpetual, and a fearful debt
also intended to be made per
petual after peace was restored?
The latter plan was adopted.
Was it necessary? It was not
only unnecessary, but the debt.
was intentionally created for
the express purpose of build
ing up a moneyed oligarchy,
and it lias been clone.
Had taxation been equal to
the expenditures of the Gov
eminent during the war, at its
'close there would haA'o been
no debt, nnd to-day Federal
taxation instead ot more than
four hundred millions. This
policy would have prevented
an inflation of prices, and re
duced'one half the cost of the
war. When greenbacks fell
to be only worth fifty cents on
the dollar, it required twodol
lars in greenbacks to buy one
dollars worth ot supplies, and
thus the cost of the war was
doubled. The expenditures of
the first year of the war were
less than l.-37,(.)UU,UU(). Had
$500,000,000 in greenbacks
been issued as became "necessa
ry to ninke purchases, and
made receivable for custom
dues as well as for the pay
ment of other taxes, they
would have maintained the par
value of gold, and been paid
into the treasury tor taxes du
ring tho next year. Hut
could five hundred millions of
taxes have been collected in a
year ? The answer is casy.-
More than six hundred and
nineteen millions were collected
during the first year of peace,
notwithstanding the four years
of war; and the voluntary con
tributions of the people during
the war nearly equalled the
amount paid in taxes. Hence
it is clear that the expenditures
of the war could have been
paid while the war continued,
and at its close we would have
returned to low taxes, anil been
free from debt.
But my kind friends, that is
exactly, what the oligarchs did
not want. A great debt was
their especial object, and that
could onlv be obtained by low
taxes during the war, and high
taxes forever afterward. Let
roe invite your careful atten
tion to the following official
figures which I read from the
last Register of the Tieasury.
During the first year of the
war, Federal taxes amounted

Borrowing and inflation
were hand in h.indduring the
war. aifd at its close we had an
unliquidated debt of more than
'six hundred millions ef Feder
al taxation. It is true that
owing to the sleepless fight
made by the .Democrats in
Gontrress. the debt Las been
reduced to a little over twenty-
three hundred millions, and the
Federal taxes to a little over
foui hundred nnd eleven mil
lions. But had the Govern
ment been wisely and honestly
administered,' the debt would
have been reduced three hund
red millions more, and the peo-
nle been relieved of a corres
ponding Amount of taxation,

THE TARIFF TAX.
A tariff is a tax which com.
pels a person to pay more for
any article than it is worth.
And of all taxes the' most op
pressive, insidious and odious
is thfi, .tariff, for what is called
protection, it is oppressive
because it maiuly tails on 1
bor; , insidious, , because it is
paid in the increased price of
the article, bougnt; without be
ing seen; odious- because for
every dollar of tariff tax which
goes into the treasury the peo
ple are compelled to pav the
lome mainitacttfaer a bonus of
three dollars. Only one fourth
of the woolen goods used in
the United States are imported
And for every four pair of
pants worn the stuff for only
one .pair is manufactured
abroad, and for the other three
at home. On woolen goods
tor pantaloons there is a tarifi
tax of sixty cents on the dol
lar. If the imported stuff to
make a pair costs three dollars,'
the tax is $1.80, nnd the value
of the goods $1.20. The home
manufacturer then adds sixty
cents on tho dollar to the value
of his stuff for pantaloons, and
sells three times as much as is
imported, it follows that the
people pay him a bonus equal
to three times the amount paid
into the treasury on the same
materials. Deducting the tax
of twenty millions on tea and
coffee, and we have ! ft a tariff
of about one hundred and six
ty millions. And assumim
that we consume three times
as much of our own manufac
tures as we import, it follows
that the same year we pay one
hundred and sixty .millions in
to tho Treasury as tariff, we
nay four hundred nnd eighty
millions to the home monopo
list more than his good are
A PROTECTIVE TARIFF IS OPPOSED
TO AGRICULTURE AND COMMERCE.
Between the States of the
Union we have absolute free
trade. The farmer sends his
products into Pennsylvania and
New York, his only cost being
that of transportation. Sup
pose that he had to pay tax of
hve cents a bushel upon deliv
ering his wheat, where would
be his profit ?
Absolute free trade is not
proposed with other countries,
but wc do propose a large re
duction of the tariff-tax, nnd
thereby not only reduce taxation,-
but the general price of
Commerce means the inter
change of commodities, and
that system must be wise which
enables the people to Sell the
surplus of their productions at
a good profit in a foreign coun
try, lint this must be mutual.
If we raise more wheat than
we can use and England makes
more goods than she can use, it
becomes our interest . to ex
change the surplus of our wheat
for a part of the surplus of her
goods, nnd we are both gainers.
She gets-bread and we get
clothes. But our wheat and
her stuffs have to be carried
across the ocean, which requires
ships, and ships open to us the
trade ot the world. Then,
Ohioans, which do you prefer
the interests ot Ohio or ot
RETRENCHMENT AND REFORM!
The whole expenditures of
the Federal Government, less
the payments on tho public
debt from the adoption of the
Constitution till July 1, 1871,
were less than fourteen , hund
red millions, and that sum in
cludes the cost of the last war
with England, thirty ycars'of
Indian wars, aud the war
against Mexico, while tho ex
penditures of the past six years,
without a dollar expended in
war, withotit including a dime
paid on the public debt, amoun
ted tons much as the entire
cost of the Government during
a period of eighty-one years,
nearly . all that time under
That there has been a good
reason far this vast expendi
ture, no intelligent man be
lieves and no honest, man will
assert. In the name of the
people, the Democracy demand
reform, and invite all good
citizen's to unite with them in
this common cause.
I could not in many days,
citizens let alone a single-how
explain to you how all this
money has been squandered.
Since the Republicans came in
to power, swarms of new offices
have been created. Before Mr.
Lincoln became President the
highest officer in the navy re
ceived a salary of $4y)00 now
he receives more than 1:1,000.
Under the Democratic rule the
highest rank in the navy wa-
Post Captain, called flag officer
wjien commanding a squadron.
Since l8.r)2, the Republicans
have created the grades of
Commodore, Hear .Admiral,
Vice Admiral and Admiral and
titles borrowed from monarch
ies, and opened to the spirit of
republican simplicity. .During
the fiscal year, ending JurVe the
30, 18G1, the entire expendi
ture of the Federal Government
hss the sums' paid on the pub
lie debt, was only sixty-two
millions, while for the last year
the expenses for the same pur
pose amounted to over one
hundred and sixty-four mil
lions. 1 charge squarely that since
the Republican organization
has been in power the legisla
tion of Congress has been un
der the control of the monopo
lists, and has been against all
who do rfot belong to "rirrgs"
organized to plunder the treas
ury. The charge is a grave
one ; you will be convinced of
DEFALCATION OF TWENTY ON MILLIONS.
IN ONE DEPARTMENT.
The defalters and their al
lies seek to divert the attention
of the people from the condi
tion of the treasury by crying
Ku-Klux, but the cheat is to
shallow to deceive nn'y one, ev
er were ho blind.
The Secretary of the Treas
ury concealed from Congress
and the people, tho fact that
balances amounting to many
millions stood charged. a'gain'st
Collectors of Internal Revenue,
who had been removed from
office. The House of Repre
sentatives alarmed nt this con
cealment called for the facts on
the 21st day of March, 1870,
and Executive Document 2G7,
Second Session. Forty-first
Congress, which I hold in my
hand was the result. During
the canvass of last year I call
ed attention to this matter and
denounced the attempt to con
vey any defalcation as a grave
offense' against the people. To
avoid this odium Mr. Senator
Sherman and other distinguish
ed persons leagued in the de-
tense of the abuses which every
one knows exist, declared that
the detaujting collectors were
Democrats who had been ap
pointed by President Johnson.
This flimsy defense was a con
fession ot guilt. VV hat greater
absurdity could be utteicd
than to say that a Republican
Secretary of the Treasury con
